Zoning changes that appear to doom plans for a downtown crematory were unanimously approved. The City Council voted Monday to further strengthen a recommendation made last month by the Planning Commission to limit crematories to industrial and light industrial districts. The change nullifies a previous use permit issued to Keaton's Mortuary to build a crematory at its downtown location.

A judge has decided that an 82-year-old San Anselmo woman can be legally evicted from the hospital bed she's refused to leave for more than a year. Marin County Superior Court Judge John Sutro on Wednesday granted Kaiser Permanente officials the right to demand that Sarah Nome leave the San Rafael medical center. Nome was admitted to Kaiser on Jan. 22, 2004, for a psychiatric evaluation. She was given a discharge notice seven days later but refused to give up her bed.

A San Francisco prosecutor has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon after a Nov. 9 fight outside his San Rafael home. Floyd Andrews has worked in the district attorney's office since 1983, specializing in fraud cases. He is accused of stabbing Martin Stanley, 37, of Fairfax with a 3-inch pocketknife.

Arabs have lived in this country since the 1870s, but Arab Americans have always been considered peculiarly foreign (insofar as other Americans knew they existed, that is), so the first generation has keenly felt the usual immigrant alienation. Their children and grandchildren, in turn, are often somewhat ambivalent about their roots. Because of this, Arab American writers have started reexamining the lives of their remarkably determined ancestors.

For the albacore fisherman wondering if, when and where the tuna are going to appear, the National Marine Fisheries Service has issued its annual forecast, based mainly on oceanic conditions throughout the species' migratory routes. Biologists with the NMFS-Southwest Fisheries Center in La Jolla say there will be modest to moderate landings this season, but prospects "could improve with more favorable ocean conditions."

Paul Weeks, a versatile reporter for The Times who pioneered the paper's coverage of Los Angeles' African American community in the 1960s, died July 10 of liver cancer at his home in Oceanside. He was 86. A veteran newsman who had worked for several Los Angeles newspapers, Weeks joined The Times in 1962. That same year, one of the paper's managing editors, Frank McCullough, asked him to look at the lives and concerns of blacks in the city.

WordStar, once the top-selling word processing program, finally has gotten a thorough face lift. It was long overdue. The program, which was released in 1979, was revised modestly last year but hasn't been upgraded in a major way since 1982. Over the years since, it has been overtaken by more up-to-date programs such as WordPerfect and Microsoft Word. Like a lot of other early users, I abandoned WordStar a few years ago in favor of WordPerfect.

The third annual Live Oak Music Festival this weekend is downright hard to resist. The setting couldn't be better--the San Marcos Camp in the Santa Ynez Mountains, a big stone's throw away from Lake Cachuma. A thick schedule of music will buzz onstage while booths offering food and drinks line the area. And music lovers can be happy campers by night. Why, it's a little Woodstock for the Birkenstock set.
