Nearly a decade after it was first planned, the Ronald Reagan Federal Building in Santa Ana is set to open next month--a year behind schedule but on budget. The 10-story building is draped in glass and marble, and houses state-of-the-art courtrooms and airy public galleries with sweeping views. Officials say it will go a long way toward meeting the needs of federal agencies in Orange County, most of which are housed in offices scattered around downtown Santa Ana.

City officials and the homeless population living in the Civic Center attempted to work out a compromise Wednesday after the city failed in its initial attempts to move the homeless to a nearby parking lot. Hoping to improve maintenance of the area and respond to complaints from Civic Center employees and patrons, the city's Recreation and Community Services Agency notified the homeless this week that a new area had been set aside for them and asked that they move voluntarily.

The small flood occurred Thursday afternoon, a spokesman said, when maintenance workers cleaned the building's air conditioners.

"A president's legacy is shaped to a great extend by his appointment of federal judges," said O'Connor, who was appointed to the Supreme Court by Reagan in 1981.

By the city's own estimate, there are 3,000 homeless people living here, and about 300 shelter beds to house them. The rest usually sleep on public property--despite the threat of arrest. It's a stark dilemma that is at the heart of a legal dispute that on Wednesday came before the 4th District Court of Appeal here. Justices heard arguments on the constitutionality of a city ordinance used to keep the homeless from sleeping in the downtown Civic Center and other areas.

Smokers in Santa Ana city buildings will have to go outside to take a puff, the City Council decided Tuesday. An ordinance passed unanimously will prohibit smoking in 22 buildings owned, leased or used by the city. It will take effect when the council approves it a second time. More than 1,400 employees work in those buildings, some of which already have their own non-smoking policies, officials said. Councilman Thomas E. Lutz voted for the ban, even though he smokes.
