Federated Department Stores Inc. announced plans Thursday to convert several Robinsons-May stores into Macy's stores. However, the Cincinnati-based company did not reveal its intentions for stores in Newport-Mesa. In March, Federated announced plans to buy St. Louis-based May Department Stores Co. in a $17-billion deal. Federated owns the Macy's chain and May owns Robinsons-May. Federated shed some light on the futures of several department stores by releasing plans to convert Robinsons-May stores into Macy's stores in 2006.

FRANKIE A 2-year-old tabby cat named Frankie had quite a scare Sunday night when he escaped from his caregivers in Fashion Island's parking structure. He had been taken to the mall by the Community Animal Network for an adoption fair. One minute Frankie was under a sport-utility vehicle, but then he vanished. Volunteers combed the bushes and the parking lot seeking to re-rescue Frankie, without success. Searchers returned to the vehicle, hoping to find the missing cat underneath.

Fashion Island is a nice fit for new city hall My opinion of the proposed city hall is this: No, we shouldn't proceed with this particular site at any anticipated cost. The civic center needs to be centrally located in our city, and there are existing buildings in which space planners could set up the much-needed one-stop shop for the public and the remaining offices -- perhaps close to a police station. I believe our city doesn't need to necessarily own the building it uses for a city hall, that a lease may even be prudent.
