The Santa Ana 714 Nutrition and Fitness Fair was held today at Godinez High School, located adjacent to Centennial Park. The highlight of the event was the basketball game between Santa Ana City Council Members, Santa Ana School Board Members, community organization activists, high school students and other city leaders.
Council Member Michele Martinez captained the red team, which included Councilman Vince Sarmiento and SAUSD School Board Member Roman Reyna. Councilman Sal Tinajero captained the blue team, which featured businessman George Pla, and two members of the Santa Ana Planning Commission. Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido was also supposed to be on the blue team, but he was late, having attended a function involving his daughter, and so he did not play, although he did stay and cheer for the blue team.
Watch the second video, below, to see which team won!

Mexican hating Assemblyman Van Tran hasn’t wasted any time. His campaign signs are starting to pop up all over Santa Ana. The sign in the picture above was posted on public property near the Main St. on-ramp to the 5 Freeway.
Tran’s website is LAME. It has no mention of what issues he stands for and lists no endorsements.
A new Facebook group has formed in support of making Santa Ana a Sanctuary City. The group’s page states that “In Santa Ana we have the numbers to make Santa Ana a Sanctuary city but we act like a minority . We must fight back!”
An effort to do this died in 2008, after Council Member Michele Martinez’ motion was defeated by Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and the rest of the Santa Ana City Council. Ironically, she is now part of Pulido’s team and is in a good position to reintroduce this idea to the rest of the Council.
Recently Pulido and his Council passed a motion voicing their displeasure with the racial profiling bill in Arizona, SB 1070. Will they now revisit the idea of making Santa Ana a Sanctuary City?
We have an all-Latino City Council in Santa Ana, but the police keep cracking down on our people. They did so brutally this week on Cinco de Mayo and are conducting another DUI checkpoint tonight. The purpose? To take cars away from immigrants and raise money for our bankrupt city by charging ridiculous impound fees. Continue reading
The Santa Ana Police Department will conduct a DUI/driver license checkpoint from 7:30 p.m., to 1 a.m., tonight through Saturday, near 2000 E. 17th St., according to the O.C. Register.
The City of Santa Ana uses these checkpoints to take cars away from immigrants. Warn your friends to stay away from this area tonight!
I just heard from a friend that the Santa Ana Police Department went completely nuts tonight, shutting down several streets in an unprecedented Cinco de Mayo crackdown. My friend reported seeing dozens of vehicles being towed away.
He also said folks were being stopped for having tinted windows and for driving while brown. The cops seemed to be looking for cruisers in particular.
I could not find any report of this over at the O.C. Register, but their reporter, Therese Cisneros, did have this to say on her Facebook page: Police to crack down on cruising tonight…..Police will be on the look out for criminal activity and vehicle code violations. Traffic will be reduced to two lanes in each direction on Bristol between McFadden and Warner….Edinger between Main and Bristol will be closed. Traffic on
Main between Mc Fadden and Warner will be reduced to one lane….Surrounding streets may be closed as well. Continue reading
