After 37 years of service at the grocery check stand, Linda Coughlin started celebrating her long-anticipated retirement Friday. Early-bird shoppers will surely be disappointed big time when they learn that she won't be there to greet them anymore. Linda has been a dedicated employee of the Pavilions on Bayside Drive in Newport Beach. Diligently commuting from her home in San Clemente, rain or shine, she has arrived bright and early to open the store, and always with a cheerful smile.

Alicia Robinson Employees at the Newport Coast Pavilions store were back at work on Monday, packing orders for delivery to customers who have had to do their own shopping for the past five months. The store resumed delivery service, which was a casualty of the five-month grocery workers' strike set off by a contract dispute with grocery chains. The Pavilions store in Newport Coast is one of 23 Safeway-owned Southern California stores that resumed deliveries on Monday.

Our Newport-Mesa community has many markets affected directly or indirectly by the grocery strike. The letters to the editors sections have overflowed for weeks. This strike has generated a tempest in a corner coffee-pot. However, let's count the blessings: 1. An incentive to go to many different stores and try new products. 2. An opportunity to meet new people and friendly employees. 3. Shop calmly and quietly without being crowded or run over by carts.

They're common sights around any town — abandoned in shopping carts, clogging gutters, strewn by the breeze across parks and front lawns. For defenders of the environment, plastic grocery bags have long been a source of agony and irritation. Starting this month, though, the state of California is taking action to reign them in. An assembly bill that took effect on July 1 has mandated that a number of grocery stores adopt in-store recycling programs, with collection bins for used bags and reusable bags for sale to customers.

Attention grocery shoppers: It is now safe to go back to the stores. That's right, the long and bitter and protracted and pick-your-own-adjective strike and lockout between the grocery employee unions and Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons supermarkets has headed for the checkout line. For some, this comes as great news. For those in search of groceries, the dilemma of either crossing the picket line and offending the pickets or having to drive miles out of your way to pick up milk, butter and eggs for the family is over.

Jennifer Kho MESA VERDE -- About 1,000 business owners, employees and customers have signed a petition to try to persuade Trader Joe's Co. to open another store in Costa Mesa. The petitioners want the new store to open in a shopping center at Harbor Boulevard and Baker Street where Save Max was, said Jody Reese, owner of My Kind'a Beach Tanning Salon, who has been circulating the petitions. "We're trying to get something here that would generate business for the whole center, not just the individual store," said Larry Ziemke, manager at King's Copies, another store gathering petition signatures.

Don't judge striking grocery workers so hastily I am saddened and frustrated by the constant picket-bashing I see submitted by the readers. Saddened, because of the public's lack of compassion toward these workers. I hear of, and have been witness to, people going out of their way to show their disgust and disrespect for hard-working employees of multimillion-dollar corporations, who are trying to maintain their way of life and their financial security.

Grocery shopping is usually thought of as a chore, certainly not something that is combined with dinner and drinks. Whole Foods Market, known for natural and organic products, aims to change this stodgy attitude with the Sept. 19 opening of its Fashion Island location. The 32,000-square-foot store features a full-service restaurant, complete bar and teahouse. To take it a step further, Whole Foods Fashion Island also has an outdoor lounge area with fire pits, valet and car-side drop-off service.

Editor’s note: This is the third of a three-part series on how the recession is affecting the Newport-Mesa area. 8 a.m. Bob Jordan got in his company van, set a single cup of water in a cup holder to quench his thirst, and headed off on the route that he’s taken nearly every Monday for the last 12 years. The van, one of two owned by the Westside nonprofit Share Our Selves, maneuvered its way out of the cramped parking lot on Superior Avenue, inching around parked cars and families who had come for their daily needs.
