Recently I saw a flier published by the Newport Beach Police Department titled "When a Stranger Knocks" that discusses ways to protect your home. The flier also offered a free individualized home inspection with NBPD's crime prevention unit. I was intrigued, so I called and spoke to Crime Prevention Specialist Andi Querry about the program, and she gave me some suggestions that even should be used if you live in a gated community. The first focus of attention is your house's landscaping, especially near the front door.

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.

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."

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.

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.

Apparently saying that someone needed money wasn't a good enough excuse for one Newport Beach man who chased down a burglary suspect he found allegedly rummaging through his friend's car early Wednesday. Police hope the arrest of Robert Schweickert, 20, of Newport Beach, can close a few theft cases for detectives after he was arrested in his neighborhood for allegedly searching cars in the middle of the night. He was caught by Ben Swift, 20, and his friend Charlie. The two happened upon Schweickert in the middle of the night as they came home from a friend's house.
