The $100-million sale of Newport Beach home builder J. M. Peters by majority owner Southmark Corp. to MDC Holdings Inc. has fallen through, the companies said Friday. Denver-based MDC announced plans in February to buy the 87% of Peters' stock held by Dallas-based Southmark. Only a week ago, MDC President David Mandarich said he was eager for the transaction to become final. Mandarich declined to comment on the failed purchase Friday.

When the yacht with the Kuwaiti flag first docked in the quiet waters of Dana Point Harbor three months ago, the locals eyed the 46-foot vessel with curiosity. "We didn't know what to make of it," said Norma D'Alessandro, 68, of San Clemente, whose craft is docked feet away. But it wasn't long before D'Alessandro and the close-knit cadre of local boaters came to befriend--and admire--the ship's captain.

Home builder Standard Pacific Corp. reported Wednesday that, although its third-quarter profit fell, orders for new houses were way up. That earnings were off is no surprise considering that the housing industry has been brutalized by the lingering recession. But that appears to be changing, finally. "Today's orders are tomorrow's deliveries," said April J. Morris, Standard Pacific's chief financial officer.

The fires sweeping Southern California should have minimal long-term effects on the region's beleaguered economy, though there could be a brief falloff in tourism to Laguna Beach and a small boost in home-construction jobs. In Orange County, where much of the damage involved expensive coastal luxury homes, the money spent on rebuilding will not be enough to nudge the county's $75-billion annual economy out of recession.
