I saw mayoral candidate Sal Tinajero speak at several campaign events leading up to the Nov. 6 General Election. Every time I heard him he was incredibly nasty – and his diatribes were at best filled with half-truths.

- Update: New Taste at 608 E. First St., Tustin, closed Oct. 29 because of plumbing in disrepair, reopened Nov. 2

The fire was knocked down quickly but the nightclub is a complete mess. Continue reading
