The closed Tustin Marine base was reincarnated Saturday when ground was broken for a homeless shelter, the first redevelopment project at the former military facility. "This has been a long, long road," Tustin Mayor Jeffery M. Thomas told about 200 people gathered for the ceremony. "It has taken a lot of time and a lot of patience." The occasion was a milestone in the saga of Orange County's two closed military bases whose reuse plans have sparked controversy.

Suddenly, it seems, everyone wants a piece of El Toro. Even the Marines. The latest proposal, by Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Escondido), calls for moving the Marines' West Coast boot camp from San Diego to a portion of the former El Toro Marine base. That, in turn, would allow San Diego's airport, Lindbergh Field, to expand onto the depot property.

But the proposed Wattstar Theatre suffered a major blow last year when a plan to convert an existing school auditorium fell through. On Thursday, supporters said the project is back on track after the U.S.

For most of the few hundred American men and women fortunate enough to be appointed to a coveted federal appeals court judgeship, the position is more than a full-time job: dissecting and ruling on 250 or more cases a year, ranging from highly complicated business disputes to appeals from condemned inmates. But for Harry Pregerson, now 78 and in his 23rd year on the San Francisco-based U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the prestigious post is only one dimension of his life.

Hoping to continue Orange County's legacy of Olympic medal-winning performances in swimming, diving and water polo, the Board of Supervisors plans to develop an Olympic training facility at the closed El Toro Marine base and open its indoor pool to a renowned Irvine swim club. It was a rare unanimous move by the five-member board, which has been deeply divided over plans to transform much of the base into an international airport, with the rest developed into a large park.

It is a five-story structure of polished brick and smoked glass, identical to its neighbors and similar to hundreds of sleek buildings in scores of new office parks in suburban Virginia's high-tech corridor. But on the second floor of this anonymous building, the CIA's newest spy school is in session. The students wear laminated blue neck tags showing that they have security clearance to use classroom computers marked "top secret." Their trash is shredded and burned each day.

Construction is underway at Cal State Northridge to renovate the existing athletic training facilities, a project expected to be completed in July. The project is being funded largely by an $80,000 donation the university received last month from Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center. Additional donations are expected to help fund the project, which will include renovated locker rooms among a state-of-the-art facility.
