A small house once at the center of a Supreme Court decision on government seizure of private property has found a safe haven. The pink clapboard house that stood in the way of New London's efforts to build a riverfront project and sparked a property rights movement was disassembled, then relocated close to downtown. New owner Avner Gregory dedicated his house before about 200 people. "This was somebody's house and they were asked to leave," he said. "This is a house that represents a home to the everyday people of America."

The Peyrauds of Domaine Tempier in Bandol were instrumental in bringing back this almost forgotten appellation due south of Marseille. Domaine Tempier's rouge and rose have been on the list at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, where their importer, Kermit Lynch, is also based, since practically day one. Mourvedre, the grape that gives Bandols their inky color and wild, almost smoky taste, is suddenly in vogue among California winemakers too. Small wonder.

The city of Boston couldn't accumulate enough land to build the gleaming new $800-million convention center it wanted on the south side of town. So the city government used its powers of eminent domain to snatch about 20 properties from private owners to provide space for the center, justifying the seizure on the grounds that the new center would boost the local economy. Today, the recently opened Boston center sits idle much of the time.

The Phoenix Suns have purchased a unique Internet domain name. According to the website Domain Name Wire , the Suns spent $5,300 to buy the domain "beat.la" -- a nod to the Suns long-time rivalry with the Lakers. Technically the ".la" is a country code for Laos, but it's somewhat of a creative loophole. The Lakers may not actually consider Phoenix a rival, but rivalries are not always a two-way street. The Suns may be able to double-up their usage on their new registration with the Clippers now a power in the Pacific Division.

Richmond is adopting a plan to take over underwater mortgages that would invoke the city's eminent domain powers if necessary. The city will be the first in the nation to formally adopt the novel but controversial plan that was rejected by San Bernardino County and two of its cities earlier this year. The city said it will buy home mortgages from financial institutions, write down those loans and refinance homeowners in the properties into new loans. If financial institutions do not cooperate, the city will seize the loans using eminent domain, Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin said.
