Mathis Winkler NEWPORT BEACH -- Home Depot officials have said their stores will exchange any rubber trash cans that do not fulfill the city's new requirements for the correct ones. The move comes after city officials had planned to ask the company to exchange about 1,500 trash cans that don't comply with new city regulations that the store had apparently sold to residents with the assurance that they did comply. "We went [to Home Depot] and did see that they had the notices on the wrong containers," said David E. Niederhaus, the city's general services director.

Andrew Glazer COSTA MESA -- A closely watched four hours after the city's first Home Depot opened, not a day laborer was in sight. But at another Home Depot, two miles away on Harbor just across the Santa Ana border, more than two dozen men stood outside the home improvement warehouse looking to paint houses, build fences or clean floors for $50 to $80 a day. Home Depot has made efforts to ward off the day laborers by...

Home Depot can't help it if it's popular. It can't help it if its vast inventory of hammers, lumber, nuts and bolts has become a haven for homeowners, amateur and professional builders and do-it-your-selfers. So you would think the mega home-supply merchant would be welcomed into Costa Mesa with open arms, especially since city officials estimate they will gain a nice $400,000 sales tax windfall from Home Depot's day-to-day operations alone. That doesn't include the major attraction it will be for the newly refurbished Harbor Center, of which it is the top anchor store.

Lolita Harper COSTA MESA -- For some businesses, the federal tax refund is doing exactly what Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and President George Bush expected it to do. Others regard it as a good promotion gone bad. Both Home Depot and Ugly Duckling Car Sales have used the tax rebates as part of their marketing strategy but have seen drastically different results. Officials at Home Depot said they have seen an increase in sales because of the recent tax rebate.

We asked shoppers at the new Harbor Center in Costa Mesa what they thought of the new plaza. Here's what a few had to say: The people who work at Home Depot are really nice and helpful. And the store isn't that crowded. I wonder if the Santa Ana store is giving them too much competition. But it will definitely be the Home Depot that we use on a regular basis. Marina Renka Huntington Beach Besides the parking, it's fine. It gets really crowded on the weekends.

Council members got hung up on arguments for and against a proposed CarMax auto superstore on the site of the former Wickes Furniture and had not decided that issue at press time. The CarMax debate arose when residents in the adjacent French Quarter townhomes appealed the planning commissions approval on the project. The residents argued the auto dealer would generate too much traffic, light and noise. A spokesman for developer Henry Segerstrom & Sons said other stores that wanted the site, including Kohl's and Home Depot, would cause far more impact on the neighborhood.

Costa Mesa will consider redevelopment City leaders will again consider the prospect of adding more than 400 acres to the downtown redevelopment zone Monday, albeit in a larger auditorium than the one that couldn't handle an overflow crowd last month. On Monday, the Redevelopment Agency -- council members acting under a different title -- will consider approving the preliminary boundaries for the odd-shaped area, which is roughly bordered by 15th Street, Whittier Avenue and West 19th Street.

Andrew Glazer COSTA MESA -- At times it was as tough as pulling in a 190-pound tuna, another challenge R. Scott Bell relishes. But like landing a trophy fish, the local developer said the struggle of buying and renovating the crumbling Harbor Center was worth the reward. Worth settling a costly lawsuit with unhappy neighbors. Worth the risk of buying the land bit by bit, with the possibility that one or more than five landowners might refuse to sell their portion, rendering the rest of his holdings useless.

AT ISSUE: The renovated Harbor Center, which opened its largest tenant, The Home Depot, this week ("Harbor Center comes to life," Jan. 5). I live at 2349 College Drive and was one of the initial members of the Neighbors of the Harbor Center. I see the opening of the Harbor Center as something fearful. We have survived a year of assault with dirt and dust that literally scoured the paint off our cars and our windowsills and covered our plants. We have heard all of the noise of construction, and now the Harbor Center will open at 6 a.m. The traffic from people bringing goods in goes directly behind our wall.

Police are looking for two men who robbed a man outside the Home Depot on Harbor Boulevard on Thursday afternoon. About 12:54 p.m., a man was walking out of Costa Mesa’s Home Depot, 2300 Harbor Blvd., when he was approached by a man who offered to help him with his things to his car, said Sgt. Bryan Glass. Behind this would-be good Samaritan was his accomplice, who approached the shopper from behind and jabbed something in his back, Glass said. He demanded the man’s money and made him lean forward and stole the cash from his back pocket before running away, police said.

NEWPORT BEACH — Richard Bredice can feel the slowdown in the U.S. economy this year from his Christmas tree lot on Jamboree Road. The manager of Christmas Tree Jamboree usually sells all his trees a week or so before the holiday, especially with his lot positioned in one of Orange County’s wealthiest residential areas. Thursday, though, Bredice still had about 130 trees left — and although he said customers were buying about 30 trees a day, he expected to keep up shop through Sunday.

Someone whose opinion I respect only next to my own has met Barbara Venezia a few times. When I asked what she was like, I was told, "She's a very nice lady." Funny and gracious were two of the other adjectives used to describe her. Funny, gracious and nice. Hardly the personality traits of someone who should be serving on a city council. Yes, we need more Barbara Venezias in local politics, but I am afraid that the system no longer allows for the best and the brightest to serve us. Oh, sure there are exceptions.

Tamar Goldmann Regarding the proposed plan to develop eight Habitat for Humanity homes in a Costa Mesa neighborhood and the Pilot editorial, "Habitat project right fit for area," Oct. 3, it is amazing that the Pilot continues to choose to assign motives to the residents of College Park and then to criticize them while the statements of the developers are taken at face value. Although you agree that issues in most cases are "nuanced," you seem not to find any standing for our position.

Habitat project too much for neighborhood Regarding the Habitat for Humanity proposal to build eight homes in Costa Mesa, it is important to note that nearby residents are opposing the Habitat low-income proposal for the same reasons that we opposed a project of expensive homes on the same parcel a couple years ago: too many people, too many cars, not enough parking and removal of the one meager mitigation our street received...

Deirdre Newman Neighbors of a proposed affordable-housing project proposed by Habitat for Humanity have already vehemently voiced their opposition to the plan. Now, the city's planning staff has joined the resistance, recommending the project be denied. Staff members said in a report that homes don't belong on the property because of noise concerns from the nearby Harbor Center, where Home Depot is located, and because the 1.5-acre site has historically been filled with commercial uses.

Habitat housing project is not best use of site I would like to invite these Newport Beach residents in favor of Habitat for Humanity housing projects to the proposed construction site in Costa Mesa and to show them where these new homes would be situated. They would be right behind the loading docks of Home Depot, where noise is common. When Home Depot was constructed four years ago, a 14-foot wall and berm were constructed and trees planted to reduce the noise (reduce -- not eliminate -- since we are still exposed to it)
