  1. It states Santa Anita,.. It was Santa Ana I was one of the responders as a pedestrian Vet medic

    1. Hi Randy. Yes it was in Santa Ana but the neighborhood in question is called Santa Anita. You can look it up in Google. Santa Ana has 52 neighborhood associations.

      We appreciate your work helping our community!

      1. Actually it’s pronounced and known as “Santanita” for ‘little’ Santa Ana. In the late 1940’s my sister & I lived there with our parents who were both immigrants. There were no sidewalks and everything was unpaved. The houses were wooden shacks I remember we had a “refrigerator” outside that was not electric and the iceman would come and put in a block of ice! Back then, I think, that would be one of the first places immigrants moved into. My ex said she also lived there with her family. When they moved out she told me how one of the boys living there tied a rope to their porch and then to his tricycle and and rode off and knocked it down.
