Of course David Morley should be "allowed" to retain his home just as it is ("Outlaw garage gets a reprieve," April 19). In a Community Commentary published July 17, I strongly voiced my opinion about this very subject of using ones garage as an additional bedroom, and I repeat it here ("Certain ways of improvement are not right"). I do believe people have the right to convert their garage into an additional and needed bedroom. Some city codes are necessary, some are not. Freedom is getting to mean less and less it seems and certainly a person should have some leeway on what they do with their own house as long as it doesn't adversely affect the neighbors and neighborhood.

Deepa Bharath The ocean, which is only a few blocks away from his home, is Richard Mazy's biggest inspiration. Mazy, 85, is what he calls a "marine painter." Most of his paintings are watercolors and blue is a color he uses a lot. Striking sunsets, frothy surf, still waters -- he captures all that and more on canvass. Mazy has worked hard on his art. And he started late, at age 50. Life was busy until then and was spent making a living and providing for his family.

Newport Beach resident born in Paris opens her home to show her art.There's no curtain to raise on Evelyn Morris' art exhibition, so the singer-turned-photographer will have to stick to what's available -- a garage door. When it opens Saturday night, guests will walk into a carport filled with framed artwork that, as Morris says, "has a French flair." Morris, a native Parisian, has all the subjects one would expect in a French photography catalog. There's the Eiffel Tower; a snowy, romantic balcony scene; and what she calls "Paris View from Sacre Coeur."

EDITOR'S NOTE: While public agencies and private businesses -- like banks, gas stations and markets -- have taken steps to prepare for technology failures related to Y2K computer concerns, there are still steps the public must take to be ready if the preparations are not enough. AMERICAN RED CROSS Check with manufacturers of any essential computer-controlled electronic equipment in your home to see if that equipment may be effected. This includes fire and security alarm systems, programmable thermostats, appliances, consumer electronics, garage door openers, electronic locks and any other electronic equipment.

Neighbors use hoses to contain fire until firefighters arrive; owner and her dog escape uninjured.A fire in the engine of an SUV may be to blame for a blaze that torched the garage of a Corona del Mar house late Tuesday, fire officials said. The owner of the house, Newport Beach Realtor Diane Coltrane, escaped safely with her dog. The fire singed the eves of a neighboring house, but no one was injured, officials said. Coltrane was upstairs watching a basketball game on TV when the power went out. She grabbed her Yorkshire Terrier and went outside to investigate.

COSTA MESA — In the world of the future, robots play football. That day will be one field goal closer Saturday. The Orange Coast College Engineering Club, along with robotic mascot Pete the Pirate, will host the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Invention Challenge in which 30 high school and junior high school teams from Southern California will enter their robotic creations at 9 a.m. in front of the college's library. The robots must be less than 2 meters tall and able to kick a regulation football over a 2-meter obstacle and into a trash can, according to the rules posted on JPL's website . "[The students]

Approved in April and made official in May, a new ordinance aimed at reducing unwanted solicitation at residential homes is receiving mixed reviews in Newport Beach. The city requires that registered commercial solicitors, such as door-to-door salesmen, take a look at list of residents who registered requests not to be solicited and pay attention to "Do Not Solicit" signs dotting many local lawns. California requires solicitors to leave alone those who post a sign asking not to be solicited, according to Newport Beach's reading of First Amendment case law. However, some residents feel solicitors are turning a blind eye to their signs and a lack of enforcement makes the ordinance more of a recommendation than a citywide rule.

Editor's note: This corrects who designed the house in the caption. NEWPORT BEACH — For Newport Harbor High Class of '84 alumnus Mike Bless, Lifeguard Tower 62 was a symbol of a youth spent on the sand and in the waves. The tower on 62nd Street and Coast Highway was torn down in the mid-'80s, but a new Lifeguard Tower 62 has become a landmark for Bless' newest stage in his life: a new home for him and his family. Bless and his wife, Cristina, bought a one-story property two blocks from the beach in Newport Shores on 62nd Street in 2009.
