Pete Wilson announced Monday that Santa Ana has been picked as a state "enterprise zone," giving the economically depressed community an enticing menu of business tax credits and other incentives to woo new manufacturing firms and keep others from bolting out of town. Officials in the city, which has the highest unemployment rate in the region, reacted with elation when Wilson unceremoniously delivered the news in a one-page press release.
