Three apartment buildings on Costa Mesa's Westside could be razed and turned into a park, but only if City Council members decide to buy them and also can find the cash. The Council Tuesday will have a closed-door discussion about whether to negotiate for properties at 791, 795 and 799 Shalimar Drive. Costa Mesa City Manager Allan Roeder said city officials might be interested in buying the land to create a small neighborhood park or open space for the area. The Westside has a shortage of park facilities, and the Council would be following a trend started in February when the city bought a parcel on the Eastside that will be combined with the adjacent Brentwood Park.

A pregnant woman shot in the leg early Saturday in Costa Mesa was probably not the intended target of the shooting, police said. The incident happened at 12:35 a.m. in the 2200 block of Pamela Lane. A white car pulled up and a man got out and shot at an apartment building where the woman was standing by the window, Costa Mesa Police Lt. Loren Wyrick said. The bullet passed through the building wall and hit the leg of the woman, who is seven months pregnant. She was transported to Western Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, and no trauma to the child was reported, Wyrick said.

Another rehabilitative recovery center is in the works on the Balboa Peninsula, and some locals aren't too happy about it. The owner of an apartment building in the 1500 block of West Balboa Boulevard in Newport Beach is applying for a license that would transform the building into a recovery center for drug and alcohol abusers. If licensed by the state, the facility will become the 10th licensed recovery center on the peninsula ? and residents say that's too many. The proposed rehab facility is one block from Newport Elementary School and near a playground and Girl Scout meeting facility.

A quick-thinking neighbor extinguished a fire in a Balboa Peninsula apartment Friday afternoon. Joe Bardes was getting ready to take a boat ride about 1:30 p.m. when he smelled something burning. He ran to the apartment building next door in the 2100 block of East Balboa Boulevard. With a cell phone in one hand, he grabbed a garden hose with the other and popped open the door as he was calling 911. Bardes, who drew on his experience as a firefighter in New Jersey, was able to put out the fire before it caused to the first-floor, one-bedroom apartment and before fire crews arrived at the scene, about three minutes later.

The funniest gag in South Coast Repertory's West Coast premiere of "Lobby Hero," is the title itself. The central character in playwright Kenneth Lonergan's examination of urban life on the night shift is anything but heroic. Jeff, the security guard on the graveyard watch at a Manhattan apartment building, is a well-meaning nebbish who can't seem to do anything right. In fact, he turns indecision into an art form. And when he does commit himself in one direction or the other, it proves to be an unfortunate choice.
