In reading your editorial "Public Parks Should Be That" (June 5), about attempts to close Jack Fisher Park in northwest Santa Ana so Latino families won't go there anymore, I felt sorry for those few white people who are so closed-minded about cultures other than their own. Fear on behalf of these people is potentially dangerous in a city where the majority of its residents are Latino. The city should try to enlighten these white folks rather than pit them against Latinos. Whether cultural diversity in Santa Ana is accepted will largely depend on the present leadership of the city.

After standing vacant for nearly a decade, the property at 17th Street and Tustin Avenue is getting a shopping center.

"It has been designed to be very pedestrian-oriented," Bell said, with outdoor plazas and sculptures and possibly a food court. There also are plans to hold quarterly art exhibits, Bell said.

The City Council has approved an agreement to recover some more of the money that Santa Ana lost in the Orange County bankruptcy.

The City Council has approved variances allowing construction of a church on Pomona Street but has warned its owners that the church will be closed if parking in the immediate area became a problem. The council voted 6 to 1 this week to approve several variances required for the project at 112 E. Pomona St. Councilwoman Patricia McGuigan opposed the motion, saying that when the council previously approved similar plans for a church, the building led to parking and traffic problems.
