At the end of this month, Dan's TV Service will fade out after 51 years in business. Dan and Jean McMillan opened the store in 1948 in a room in the back of Myrene's Service Station at 17th Street and Newport Boulevard. Two years later, they built their own shop at 1566 Newport Blvd., where the store still stands. "We still have customers that we sold our first TVs to," said Jean, who has mixed feelings about closing the business.

Roger Neth, former police chief and the first police officer hired by the city, will talk about his experiences tonight at 7:30 at the Costa Mesa Historical Society. Neth said that when he began his police career, palm trees lined both sides of a street where the Costa Mesa Freeway now runs. With the city population only about 16,000, not many crimes were being committed in 1953. Before incorporation, there were no sidewalks or gutters on most of the streets.
