Responding to recent attacks by some of her critics who questioned whether she is a U.S. citizen, Councilwoman Julie Sa shot back Friday, saying she does not have to prove her citizenship and that such demands are "clearly discriminatory." Sa, who had been asked during several council meetings to prove that she is a U.S. citizen, said she was naturalized in 1982. She said she has been targeted by some activists merely because of her race.

At a glance, Julie Sa would seem a most unlikely candidate to become the economic czar of a special development zone in North Korea. She is not only a U.S. citizen but also an avid churchgoer and registered Republican -- hardly the type usually praised by the arch-communist regime in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. Although Chinese by ethnicity, she was born and educated in South Korea, which technically is still in a state of war with the North.

Beleaguered Fullerton Councilwoman Julie Sa spoke out Tuesday for the first time about her last-minute decision not to seek reelection. "I want to clear the situation and tell people what the heck is going on," Sa said in an interview Tuesday afternoon. "I've served eight years, and maybe it's a good time for me to spend more time with my parents and family. It's not because of anybody attacking me. That's just dirty politics."

Which is home: A one-bedroom kitchenette apartment in Fullerton or a sprawling hacienda listed for $1.5 million in Chino Hills? Fullerton City Councilwoman Julie Sa has been fighting accusations that the motor inn apartment she calls home is only a front for election purposes--that she really lives in the 8,200-square-foot mansion with private helipad in San Bernardino County.

Orange County prosecutors asked the state attorney general's office Wednesday to investigate allegations that a longtime Fullerton council member has violated election rules by living outside the city.

Snow Hume apologized Tuesday to the local Korean American community for a remark he made to Fullerton Mayor Julie Sa, but not to the mayor herself because he believes she previously impugned his character. "I apologize to the Korean American community of Orange County for any hurt its members have suffered from my mocking of Mayor Julie Sa's poor English," Hume said. "I will not publicly mock anyone's language impairments again."

City Councilman Chris Norby has failed to get his council colleagues to consider adopting restrictions on the naming of public facilities. "I thought it would be helpful to have guidelines for naming places," Norby said, pointing out the public scrutiny over some county facilities that have been named after Orange County supervisors.

In perhaps his last official act as mayor, Chris Norby today will host a public birthday party for himself and another council member. Norby began hosting birthday parties for council members this year in an effort to start a new custom at City Hall. The party will begin at 7 p.m. in his office at City Hall, 303 W. Commonwealth Ave. He turns 48 Wednesday, and Councilwoman Julie Sa turns 47 Dec. 15. The party precedes the 7:30 p.m.
