Machines buzzed and clanged behind a green construction barrier Tuesday morning as crews began the demolition of what was once Nabers Cadillac dealership, a Harbor Boulevard mainstay for nearly half a century. The lot at Merrimac Way and Harbor Boulevard in Costa Mesa was most recently home to Orange Coast Buick GMC Cadillac, which has temporarily moved its operations into a neighboring facility until construction is complete. The old campus - where bulldozers dismantled rows of aging service ports and an outdoor courtesy car wash stood in decay - will be replaced by a new "state of the art" dealership with 32 indoor service bays and two "Internet-driven" showrooms, according to Orange Coast Buick GMC Cadillac officials.

A separate project will involve new sidewalks in the area. The spruce-up, part of a City Council initiative for 2014, also promises to provide an example of the kind of revitalization that could be done in other city parks, Councilman Tony Petros, who has spearheaded the effort, said at the council meeting Tuesday.

This corrects an earlier version of this story. When Norma Jean looks in the mirror, she no longer sees the face that got punched. The Costa Mesa actress and comedienne received a “10 Years Younger” makeover on the TLC cable program last year to erase the emotional scars of abuse. The episode airs Wednesday. But the pain inside will never heal, she said, and the eyes that got “double-lifted” still cry the same tears. It’s a fine line between tragedy and comedy, but what you do with your experiences are what define you, said Norma Jean, who goes by her first name.

Fresh paint coated the walls and a flat-screen TV hung in the living room across from a new art wall. Newly hung curtains framed the windows and brightly patterned pillows livened up the couch. "I just walked into my house, and I was like, 'Oh, my God! Are you kidding me?'" said Sarah Reeve, a single mother of two whose Eastside Costa Mesa two-bedroom home was the recipient a two-day mini-makeover. "What amazed me is they used my stuff ... I'm so impressed because I would have never envisioned it the way they did. " "I love it," Reeve's 6-year-old son Luke yelled into the phone.

Three accomplices. One victim. Interrogation, intervention, agreement, surrender and finally — shopping. Shopping? Yes, shopping. The Style Network was at South Coast Plaza Monday shooting episodes for season nine of “How Do I Look?” — the show that features two friends and a professional stylist who shop for clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as choose a new hairstyle, for one lucky “victim” of a total makeover. Friends Maggie Brown and Bette Tilch, along with professional stylist Marcellas Reynolds — the accomplices — each spent time separately shopping at Calypso, Marina Rinaldi and Macy’s, for the victim, Michelle Krehl.

Silent and live auctions are super important elements associated with almost every major charitable event on the Orange Coast. Organizers can spend up to a year knocking on doors of merchants, vendors and professionals, gathering the goods and services that will be sold to the highest bidder at every party imaginable benefiting your favorite cause. People love auctions and either they get a fabulous buy or they end up overpaying in a frenzy of competition, but either way the expense is justified because the funds go to charity.

City officials have prioritized Lido Marina Village and Balboa Village as the two areas of Newport Beach to get comprehensive makeovers, ahead of Mariner's Mile and other areas. The City Council will vote Tuesday on a plan for the Neighborhood Revitalization Committee, the group formed earlier this year to fix problems like underperforming retail areas and tired-looking streetscapes. As a result, some business owners and residents will likely see changes to their areas sooner than others.
