The trial over the eviction of a furniture store in a Costa Mesa shopping center, which has rallied other store owners against the property manager, was set Monday for Jan. 8 as both sides failed to reach a settlement. Don Logan, co-owner of Waterfront Furnishings in the South Coast Home Furnishings Centre on Hyland Avenue near the 405 Freeway, argues his eviction is retaliation for rallying the center’s tenants against the property’s management, South Coast Home Furnishings Center LLC. More than two dozen witnesses are ready to testify on Logan’s behalf, he said.

During its heyday in the 1930s and 1940s, South Coast Co. was widely recognized as one of the most complete shipping yards for designing and constructing world class fleets.

If there's one thing we can say about Paul Folino, it's that he cares. In fact, it's easy to say he cares a lot about the arts at South Coast Repertory. A little over a week ago, the theater company announced that Folino, president and chief executive of Emulex, donated $7.5 million to fund programming at the new complex. The gift brought his overall contribution to $10 million -- a good fifth of the group's current $50-million campaign. So, far $40 million has been raised.

Edgar Landa is intrigued by violence. But that's not to say he's a savage sort with a proclivity for destruction, the Hollywood fight choreographer is quick to add. Starting out as an actor, Landa began training with fight directors as he followed his curiosity about that place in each of us where the capacity for violence resides. He strove to understand what people are capable of under stress or when driven by rage or passion. On the flip side, does a victim fight back?

If you ever watched Disney's 1998 romantic comedy "The Parent Trap," then you most likely saw Erin Mackey - but you would have had no way of knowing that it was her. Such is the life of an acting and photo double. Only the back of her head or a bit of her profile, captured at a distance, made it into some shots, said the Fullerton native. Mackey, who was active in her hometown's Children's Repertory Theater, missed six months of sixth grade to take the role. Although she and Lindsay Lohan haven't stayed in touch, Mackey recalled dressing up in matching outfits with the young star of the movie and attempting to fool people on the set. "It's good that I was 11, because what 11-year-old is going to know what to do anyway?"

Ask any random group of patrons of the Orange County theater world, and they can probably tell you that Hal Landon Jr. has played Ebenezer Scrooge in South Coast Repertory's "A Christmas Carol" for the last 34 years. What they may not know is that Landon isn't the only person who's stayed with the annual holiday production since 1980. While the actor has traced Scrooge's metamorphosis from gruff curmudgeon to bringer of cheer, the same director, John-David Keller, has guided him from the wings each time.
