By 2 p.m. Tuesday, security officer Nick McGahuey felt like he had been summoned to keep the peace in a ghost town. The Chet Holifield Federal Building on Avila Road here, known to locals as the Ziggurat building, was eerily deserted. Looking for tax advice at the Internal Revenue Service? "Outta luck," as McGahuey put it. "The doors are locked up tighter than a drum." Those hoping for help in obtaining Social Security checks would find three employees out of 21 on duty at a solitary window.

Thousands of federal employees returned to work Monday in Santa Ana and Laguna Niguel, relieved that the six-day national budget deadlock is over but worried that another fiscal crisis may be on the way. Art Estrada, an 18-year Internal Revenue Service agent, said he got fed up after watching the political bickering between the White House and Republican congressional leaders on television. "I'm glad it's over," Estrada said as he walked into the federal building in downtown Santa Ana.

Rep. Maxine Waters said Monday she wants to tour the Newport Beach office of the Resolution Trust Corp. because she has received numerous complaints from her constituents about that office. Speaking at a Los Angeles meeting of a five-member panel overseeing the RTC's West Coast operation, the Los Angeles Democrat said the complaints center on the difficulty in negotiating with the bureaucracy at the RTC.

FDA Leases Offices: The federal Food and Drug Administration is moving its district office and more than 110 employees from Los Angeles to Orange County. Attracted by the proximity to the John Wayne Airport and the chance to present a "polished image," the FDA has signed a lease for 40,000 square feet at Newport Gateway's Tower II, one of twin black granite office towers. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

Gebre E. Habtu fled Ethiopia 15 years ago because the government there wanted him dead. He said he left because of his political and social beliefs. Habtu, now an asylum officer for the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, shared his experience Wednesday at the opening of the newest INS office that is expected to speed up asylum cases. INS Commissioner Gene McNary said the 24,000-square-foot building will serve asylum cases only and will process about 80,000 per year.
