  1. Art, Do they have a program like this for business owners in Santa Ana who unlike the S.A. Cops, can’t retire at age 50 making nearly $200,000 a year? I love that the kids get free stuff but nearly all Santa Ana students in SAUSD qualify for two free meals a day year round. I know more than a few S.A. business ownwers who will not be making any Target shopping trips this Christmas and would love to “Shop with a Cop”.

    Have you hears any more about the proposed “Public Safety Tax” which is gooing to be proposed by the City Council?

  2. I remember when I donated a 1,000 of r/c cars to under previllage kids for Gloria Perez and the city Santa Ana but they didn’t appreciate it…….
