Dozens of residents upset over a proposed downtown pawnshop say they will urge the City Council at its meeting tonight to reject the plan. Washington Square residents say the planned 10,000-square-foot shop would attract crime and hurt efforts to revitalize the downtown image. And members of the Sandpointe and Wilshire Square neighborhood associations have also formally opposed the project in letters to council members and appearances before the city's Planning Commission.

A law that would require the removal of pay telephones used for drug sales, prostitution and other crimes was approved Tuesday by the City Council. In what is considered the first of its kind for Orange County but part of a growing trend throughout the state, the city ordinance seeks to curb crimes transacted through pay telephones and pagers and would allow the removal of the phones for one year if they are declared a "public nuisance."

The city's cable company has abandoned, for now, a controversial plan to scramble its signal, bowing to the City Council and subscribers who denounced the proposed change as too inconvenient. David Barford, general manager of Comcast Cablevision, said Friday that the company has dropped the plan after a survey of subscribers showed significant opposition to it, especially from subscribers with cable-ready VCRs who would have to get a decoder box and use an additional remote control.

Siding with residents of one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, the City Council has rejected a proposal to open a car repair business on a vacant lot. Supporters and opponents of the proposal saw the decision as a referendum on the future of the Logan neighborhood, which is a mix of homes and mostly industrial businesses. Council members heeded the concerns of residents who said opening another business would disrupt the neighborhood's fragile balance and further its decline.

To the great relief of commuters and business owners, the 1st Street bridge over the Santa Ana Freeway reopened Friday morning--almost 18 months after it was closed for construction. About 100 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the bridge, part of a $34-million Caltrans project to widen the street and improve ramps at 1st and 4th streets in Santa Ana. Santa Ana City Councilman Robert L. Richardson stressed that the reopening meant that Tustin and Santa Ana were once again joined.
