Prompted by the success of last year’s event, Costa Mesa real estate broker Weichman Associates turned the Fairview Park train station into a winter wonderland for a second time. More than 1,000 people came out Saturday afternoon to ride the train to Santa’s Village — a makeshift cluster of activities including face painting, cookie decorating and photos with Santa Claus. This year, for the first time, the event partnered with the Costa Mesa Fire Department through ABC7’s Spark of Love campaign to collect toys for needy children.

Kevin Scanlon I have a digital gauge in my car that tells me which direction I am driving and also tells me the outside temperature. This morning, it read "-5." Let me tell you about -5. "Negative." Just say the word. It's sinister. I should have known when I walked in my garage and the ice and snow from yesterday had not melted off my car that this was not a good sign. I kept staring at the gauge, confused, thinking it would change. I guess the first stage is denial.

Danette Goulet COSTA MESA -- It was one of those futuristic goals for the year 2000. Now, after seven years of laboring to beautify the city, members of ReLeaf Costa Mesa will realize their goal of planting 2,000 trees when they put the last 38 in at Fairview Park today. "I think it is a completion of a dream that started seven years ago with a very persistent and consistent board," said Liz Meyer, president of ReLeaf Costa Mesa. "We were able to complete this dream, and I think it speaks well of the citizens of this community."

The Angels have met with the developer of the Orange County Great Park property to see whether the construction of a new ballpark might be feasible on that Irvine site. The news comes the day before the city of Anaheim is set to release an appraisal of the  Angel Stadium property.  The Angels have grown frustrated  over  negotiations for a deal that would keep the team in Anaheim  for the long term, and Angels executives have opened discussions for potential alternative sites in Tustin and now Irvine.

UC Irvine police Friday warned students about a man who tried to touch a female student inappropriately after he gave her a ride. The student told police this week that a man approached her and offered to take her to a train station where she was headed, according to a news release from the police department. When they got there, the suspect attempted to touch the student, but she was able to escape, according to police. The man has been approaching female students and offering to give them directions or advice "on how to live in America," according to a news release from the UC Irvine Police Department.

A UC Irvine project designed to cut pollution out of the last leg of a commute is expanding with 30 new zero emissions cars, the campus announced Thursday. The Zero Emission Vehicle-Network Enabled Transport, or ZEV-NET, provides battery powered cars to commuters arriving at the Irvine Transportation Center who need a way to cover the final distance to a nearby office or the UCI campus. Since 2002, UCI staff and employees of companies that enroll in the program can use one of the electric vehicles for the day after their train arrives.

Well, I am in Palermo, and the city and the weather are beautiful. I rode on my first sleeper train for 12 hours to get here, but I nearly got stuck in Naples with nowhere to stay. I actually missed an earlier train (one I had already purchased a ticket for) that was to leave Naples at 10:30 p.m. After returning from Capri in the late afternoon, I had a few hours of sitting in the station to look forward to, so I called my friend Renato, and we took the metro to a coffee house.

Tom Titus When South Coast Repertory opened its new Julianne Argyros Theater last November, the occasion was a world premiere, Richard Greenberg's new play, "The Violet Hour." Not to be outdone, SCR's Nicholas Studio -- the former Second Stage renovated and reconfigured as a 95-seat theater -- will offer its first production this weekend, also a world premiere. And a home-grown one, at that. Laurie Woolery, an actress, director and the director of the theater's Young Conservatory program, is also a playwright and has created a play especially for her students.

As I write this, I am sitting in the comfort of my own room at my home in Costa Mesa. My surroundings look about the same as when I left them, except a good deal cleaner, thanks to my dad's preparations. Thanks, Dad. Though all of my objects are familiar, they now possess a strange quality of antiquity as though I am looking at the relics of a past life. I go through my closet and dress in clothes that no longer suit my style — I am putting on someone else's skin as I stand in my own museum.
