Here’s a roundup of restaurant and retail news from across Orange County. Take a look at the slideshow for more details on each.

In-N-Out Burger: Nearly six years after entering Texas, Irvine-based In-N-Out Burger has 32 restaurants in three big Lone Star markets: Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin. Now the Southern California burger institution has its eye on Houston. Citing a local real estate firm, the Houston Chronicle said In-N-Out is exploring a Houston location.

Smashburger: The restaurant in Buena Park is the latest to close. The better burger chain out of Denver entered the Orange County market in 2012. Last year, a Smashburger in Irvine closed. It is being replaced by The Cut, a gourmet burger eatery that started out as a food truck.

Cinnamon Productions: Locations in Rancho Santa Margarita and San Clemente closed over the past two weeks. Owner Randy Farah said in a statement on Facebook that the bakery cafe was unable to negotiate a new lease in Rancho Santa Margarita. He recently closed a Ladera Ranch cafe. A location in Foothill Ranch closed last year. Attempts to reach Farah have been unsuccessful.

Wounded army veteran receives keys to new mortgage-free home in ...

(ROCKWALL, TX – June 24, 2016) U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jerry Holcomb and family are finally home after officially receiving the keys to their new mortgage-free, custom-built house during this morning’s dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Members with The Dallas Builders Association, Mishler Builders, Inc. and Operation Finally Home welcomed the Holcomb family after a special ceremony held in honor of their sacrifice and service to our country.

Sgt. Holcomb – who suffers from some major health issues including a traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, neck, shoulder and back pain after three deployments in Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan – was given a custom-built, mortgage-free home courtesy of Operation Finally Home, Mishler Builders, and sponsors including the Dallas Builders Association, TXU Energy and FC Dallas. A generous donation from the Fletcher family of Heath, along with other numerous donations from the Rockwall community, provided Mishler Builders with the lot and the necessary funds to help build the home for the Holcomb family.

Do you support Congress's bailout plan, or the House Republicans' bailout plan?

Here's the bullet points directly from the House GOP plan:

* Rather than providing taxpayer funded purchases of frozen mortgage assets, we should adopt a mortgage insurance approach to solve the problem.

I like the Republican's plan a lot better than the Democrat's plan, but what I really want is for the people who got loans they should not have received to go bankrupt and the bankers who issued the loans prosecuted for fraud.
