In 1972, a group of 11-year-old boys marched to City Hall and demanded that Santa Ana officials abandon plans to chop down a dozen camphor trees surrounding Willard Intermediate School. They gathered at then-Public Works Director Ron Wolford's office and declared their dedication to saving the expansive trees. Their leader, a skinny fifth-grader, impressed Wolford with his argument and sincerity. "The kid was something else," recalled Wolford, who is now a city engineer.

The Times last November noted that Santa Ana lacks "a coherent long-term plan" to provide for "adequate provisions" for dealing with the problems of the homeless. In a December editorial, The Times complimented Santa Ana for making a start to deal with homeless issues if other cities would match Santa Ana's commitment. In the same editorial, The Times notes "we in the county have to do more to reduce those numbers (of homeless)." So, we then have the curious situation of The Times encouraging a countywide solution, yet ready to quit before the work begins.

"I didn't know he'd done that," Anderson, a certified public accountant from Fullerton, said of Johnson.
