SAPD police officers shot and wounded an unidentified male suspect this afternoon before 3 p.m., according to the O.C. Register.
The OC Health Care Agency has released a list of the eateries they inspected and shut down for the week of March 2 – 9. Most of these eateries reopen pretty quickly after the health inspectors determine their issues have been resolved. Here is the list:
- Original Mike’s, 100 S. Main St., Santa Ana; insufficient hot water; closed March 7, reopened March 7.
- El Metate Panaderia, 1338 W. First St., Santa Ana; rodent infestation; closed March 5, reopened March 5.
- Haagen-Dazs at the Outlets at Orange, 20 City Blvd., Orange; cockroach infestation; closed March 6, reopened March 7.
For some reason the O.C. Register has not published an article about the shooting. Could it be that their new landlord, developer Mike Harrah, who founded Original Mike’s, put the kibosh on any reporting about this latest criminal incident at Original Mike’s? Continue reading
A man who was bleeding from a stab wound to the chest who was found by the SAPD while he was walking near the Center Justice Center courthouse on West Civic Center Drive and North Flower Street, early this morning at around 1:20 a.m. claimed that he was stabbed at at Original Mike’s Restaurant, located at 100 S.

Santa Ana artist Theo Hirsch has published a new post about the owner of the Santora building, Jack Jakosky, and I learned a few things while reading it.
It turns out that “Jakosky comes to the Santora building himself, with his girlfriend weekdays and weekends, in order to shut down the building and lock the bathrooms.” Jakosky is a very wealthy man, but he comes to Santa Ana himself to secure the Santora building? That is pretty odd.
While Jakosky has cleaned up and repaired the Santora he has also killed what used to be a fun art scene at the venerable arts building. As Theo pointed out, the Santora now looks like a jail. Continue reading

Shuntele Andrews, a retired Valley High School teacher, is hosting a fundraiser for her SAUSD School Board campaign on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, from 6 to 8 pm, at Original Mike’s, located at 100 S. Main St., in Santa Ana.
Andrews is endorsed by the Santa Ana Educators’ Association.
Santa Ana Councilman Roman Reyna, looking to unseat ten-term Mayor Miguel Pulido in the November election, will kick off his mayoral campaign Saturday pledging to stamp out “backroom deals” and increase City Hall transparency, according to the Voice of OC.
Reyna’s fundraiser features most, but not all, of his Council colleagues and will be held at Original Mike’s, at 100 South Main St., in Santa Ana, at 11 am today, Saturday, June 7. Be careful. Original Mike’s received three health violations in April, including “Lack of/Unsanitary/Condition Walls/Floors/Ceilings.” And they received six health violations in March, including “Evidence of Vermin Activity/Presence of Animals/Insects.” Yum!
He is holding the fundraiser on Garage Sale weekend so most of his supporters likely won’t be there. Continue reading

Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer has requested that the Health Care Agency update the issue of the public’s right to know about restaurant health and sanitation issues, which the Board of Supervisors last dealt with in 2008. That was the year the Orange County Grand Jury recommended letter grade health ratings for restaurants.
The 2007-2008 Orange County Grand Jury concluded that the procedure for notifying the public in Orange County about the cleanliness and safety of neighborhood restaurants is almost non-existent. They were right. It still is. Oh you can ask a restaurant for their inspection reports, but who does that?
So can you trust our restaurants? Not the ones in Downtown Santa Ana! Here are their latest health inspection reports – and major and minor health violations: Continue reading
