The premier of British Columbia formally opened Orange County's first foreign trade office Thursday, making Irvine the base from which the Canadian province will solicit Southern California trade, conventioneers and tourists. British Columbia is targeting Southern California because of its booming economy and strong high-tech and manufacturing base. Being central to Los Angeles and San Diego, Orange County is the best location to cover the entire Southern California region, trade officials said.

The burgeoning entertainment industry is transforming this community, once known mostly as the home of Forest Lawn, into one of the hottest office markets in Southern California. With studios and other media-related firms flocking to town, the demand for office space has soared. The trend, which began in 1991, was in evidence again on Monday with the news that Walt Disney Co. plans to lease seven floors in a Glendale office building for corporate administrative operations.

The Police Department is hoping to make shopping this season a little more safe and worry-free. In an effort to reduce theft during the pre-Christmas shopping chaos, the department has opened a storefront office in the Tustin Market Place. Police and local store owners say they are pleased with the results. "We know there's a greater tendency for auto burglary and for people leaving their Christmas presents exposed in the back seat of their vehicles," Officer Houston Williams said.

There was plenty of holiday spirit at Gina Munoz's office Christmas party Friday. The only things missing were the holiday spirits. Instead of the customary eggnog spiked with brandy, workers toasted Christmas and Hanukkah with orange juice and coffee at the Arco Plaza investment company where Munoz works. Similar scenes were repeated across the city as workers reached for cups of soft drinks instead of the champagne and liquor that has traditionally flowed at Christmas parties.

Vaughn King of Fullerton had scarcely hooked up his new fax machine before he was organizing trade shows from his home. "After being unable to reach an individual on the phone for two weeks, I faxed her a proposal for three shows and received a call the same day. We wrapped up the agreement that afternoon," he says. David Ellis of Simi Valley uses a personal computer to look up policies, write proposals and send out mailings at his home-based insurance and financial services business.

In a move hailed by both business interests and environmentalists, the California Coastal Commission opened a Ventura office Monday to serve an area from Malibu to Santa Barbara County. The commission's South Central Coast office relocated from a Santa Barbara building to 89 S. California St. in downtown Ventura. The new office houses 15 staff members and, at 6,500 square feet, is almost twice the size of the Santa Barbara office, said Gary Timm, assistant district director.

The FBI has opened a branch office in Lancaster in response to a rise in white-collar crime and bank robberies in the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys. The two outlying valleys were previously served by agents from the FBI's Westwood office, but maintaining a presence in Lancaster is more cost-effective than having agents commute, said Gary Auer, the FBI supervisor in charge of the Lancaster branch and bureau operations in Ventura and Santa Barbara.

One of the questions home office owners ask as they prepare their taxes is, "Can I take a deduction for a home office?" The words regularly and exclusively are key to whether a home office qualifies for the deduction, said Sally Ruhnau, public affairs specialist at the Internal Revenue Service's Laguna Niguel District. "The area of the house designated as a home office needs to be used regularly and exclusively for business," she said.
