    I like your story except where you say Santa Ana is a poorer(wow that word looks weird) area. Have you been to Santa Ana? Not all of Santa Ana is the ghetto..come on now…Floral Park? The hills(which are consider Santa Ana)..and where I live………Is certainly not poor……..okay I am done ranting.

    Know Santa Ana? Baby, I AM Santa Ana… which is to say I grew up there and lived there for most of my life. Hey, I might be an Anaheimian suburbanite now but I know Santa Ana like the back of my – well, you know. Yes, there are some nicer areas but go to Briston & McFadden or cruise First Street. That’s what I’m talking about! (When I say “poorer”, I mean “in relation to” or “more down to earth”. No disrespect intended.) MAD PROPZ TO SA!

    I think it’s because the county is BIG – 800 square miles, 3 million people, hundreds of neighborhoods – it’s all true. The OC, and Arrested development, and the Real OC on MTV – those are representative of some of Orange County, just like downtown Santa Ana, and San Juan Capistrano, and Little Saigon, and Fullerton. We’ve got rich and poor, beaches and mountains, hip and down-to-earth. If you’re gonna group a place by county designation, Orange County is an awesome place to live.

    Have people just come to accept the fact that Big Lots will be coming into our community? This is a big concern. The image and feel of the neighborhood will change for the worse. Stores in the neighborhood should be primarily for those living in the neighborhood. I can tell you that most don’t want Big Lots. They probably don’t know it’s coming and if they did, wouldn’t know what action to take. Let’s take a stand for to preserve our community. No “Big Yard Sale”!!
