His next move, some here say, was payback for what Lucas described in a written statement as the "bitterness and anger" expressed by his neighbors. The creator of "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" is working with a local foundation that hopes to build hundreds of units of affordable housing on a former dairy farm called Grady Ranch, where his studio would have risen.

Renaldo Martinez Rios is one of 1,100 laborers and fieldworkers crowded into 140 trailers at the Oxnard Mobile Home Lodge near the Pacific Coast Highway.

"TRW Deal Seen as Job-Saving Model for State" (May 14): Your article outlines rent subsidies given to a large corporation to entice it to keep some 1,200 jobs in Orange, yet very little mention is made of one of the biggest reasons businesses large and small give for leaving Orange County, and indeed, for leaving California--the lack of housing their employees can afford.
