Final approval of a 20-year building and improvement plan at Watsonville's airport is being slowed by an endangered plant. An environmental report on the improvements won City Council approval last month. A final OK has been stalled, however, as the city waits for an agreement with the state Fish and Game Department over the tarplant. Among the planned improvements are adding about 100 hangars and lengthening the main runway by 800 feet.

Angry rock fans destroyed a concert hall sound system, broke windows, shattered bar glasses and set a car on fire when a popular Mexican rock band got stuck in the snow and had to cancel an evening show. At least 600 people who paid up to $60 a ticket to see the band El Tri on Sunday were told the group was caught in a massive blizzard outside Reno and would miss its appearance.

If you go to where Main Street meets Freedom Boulevard, there, across the street from Morland Notre Dame Catholic School and the Taco Burrito restaurant, you'll see St. Patrick's Church. It's an immense red-brick building with a 60-foot-tall steeple that dominates the downtown skyline. The church was built in 1903. Each wall has large stained glass windows that depict biblical scenes, including Jesus on the cross and Jesus rising from the grave.

With a last, longing look at a picture of her dead son, Beverly Godinez fled the earthquake-ravaged low-rent hotel she called home and joined the ranks of the Bay Area's homeless. Her home had made it through Tuesday's initial quake, but 23 hours later, a terse voice burst over the hotel intercom and ordered its residents out. She grabbed a few clothes and a few dollars and rushed outside with her husband, Ferman Malbrough. "I stared at that room and just felt lousy," Malbrough said.

Mobile homes for people who lost their dwellings in the Bay Area earthquake finally arrived in Watsonville over the weekend--nearly eight weeks after the disaster. The three-bedroom trailers are being provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency free of charge for periods not to exceed 18 months. Hundreds of people have lived in a tent city at Callaghan Park since the Oct. 17 magnitude 7.1 quake. About a dozen families have already moved into the trailers, FEMA officials said.

One year after Northern California's deadly 7.1-magnitude earthquake, farm worker Jesus Garcia and his family are sharing a single room in a run-down Watsonville motel. The Garcias' apartment was destroyed in the quake and their application for federal housing assistance is under appeal. Brent and Erma Browning have not been able to move back into their damaged Santa Cruz mountain home because they are waiting for county building permits.

More than four years after an earthquake devastated its 86-year-old church, a Catholic congregation celebrated St. Patrick's Day by completing its new one. The new St. Patrick's is a replica of the beloved old church--and an emblem of this farming community, its hardships and its hopes. "It is a landmark both physically and spiritually. It's a real focal point in the community. It's a prominent symbol that people identify with," Mayor Lowell Hurst said.

The City Council has approved the vast Sea View Ranch housing development despite farmers' concerns that it could put the squeeze on their livelihood. The issue focused on a city requirement that housing in agricultural areas be at least 50 feet from farms. Farmers say they really need a 200-foot buffer to guard against pesticide drift, noise pollution and complaints from neighbors.
