When are Santa Ana officials going to wake up and smell the coffee? As gang murders skyrocket toward record numbers, our city fathers and mothers are up at City Hall worrying about Santa Ana's image. Before they go to work on the image, they should concern themselves with providing a safe living environment for all citizens, from the elderly to the young, from "choirboys" to "homeboys." The problem is that our leadership, the city manager and the majority of the City Council, are out of touch with the majority of the people here, and don't really understand what is behind the gang problem, nor do they really care.

Re "Waiting for His Day in Court Since '98," Feb. 5: Regardless of the outcome in Art Romo's narcotics trial, he will always have my utmost respect. In fact, the residents of Santa Ana will always owe him a debt of gratitude for his work in bringing peace to our streets. Government and law-enforcement officials have unfairly targeted Romo and other leaders of the United Gang Council from its inception. Romo reached out to the troubled youths who had become entangled in the violent world of street gangs.

As a citizen of Santa Ana who is actively involved in city government, I am particularly interested in the homosexual festival proposed by Orange County Cultural Pride. Over 95% of the 2,000 citizens of Santa Ana that have expressed their opinion to Mayor (Daniel E.) Young and the City Council regarding the homosexual festival are strongly opposed to its taking place. While this is a gauge of the level, or lack thereof, of acceptance of homosexuality, it is not the basis for denying or revoking the permit.

Santa Ana should continue to be a major supporter of the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art (March 17). The property was left by Charles and Ada Bowers to any city in Orange County that would provide a place for people interested in history to gather to further that interest. Santa Ana chose to take up that task, and the Bowers Museum was built and opened in 1936, despite the hard times of the Depression. As a docent at Bowers since 1991, I know the museum serves Santa Ana and Orange County, as well as the large group of people who choose to support education, the arts, and the general well-being of all citizens.

After reading the article about the Orange Police Department's gang book being declared improper by the 4th District Court of Appeal ("Orange's 'Gang Book' Flunks a Legal Test"--Dec. 3), I felt compelled to write. I need to state that I am writing as a private citizen of Orange County, not as a member of the Orange Police Department; however, my police experience helps to form my opinion in the matter of this ruling. Justice (Edward J.) Wallin indicated that the photographing of gang members was too great an intrusion of their individual liberties.

Santa Ana residents beware! City Hall is at it again. The mayor and the city manager want to rip you off in the form of an additional 1% utility tax to build a 450-bed jail west of Eddie West Field. They are already acquiring property through the Redevelopment Agency. First of all, why don't they just put it to the vote of the people to see if they want another jail in Santa Ana? Secondly, if the developer in south Orange County can come up with a plan to privatize a county jail, why can't the city?

Congratulations to the city of Santa Ana and to the leaders of the city's artist community for the opening of the Grand Central Art Center (March 1). After many years and millions of wasted tax dollars, there is finally something to show for it. And now that this taxpayer-subsidized pipe dream of center founder Don Cribb and his cronies on the City Council is coming to fruition, they want to discriminate against businesses they deem not upscale enough. How arrogant of this band of elitists to turn their backs on small businesses like the Neutral Grounds coffee shop in favor of larger, bigger-name businesses.

If the candidates running for office look familiar to voters this year, that's because they are. The field includes four current and former council members and several candidates who failed to win seats in earlier elections. Engineer Gordon Bricken and retired businessman Harry K. Yamamoto, both former councilmen who served in the 1970s and early 1980s, are running for council again. Meanwhile, the mayoral race pits Councilman John Acosta as a dark horse candidate against incumbent Daniel H.

Saturday, Dec. 20, will mark a week in custody for Saddam Hussein at the hands of our military and its boss, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Though that in itself is not significant, the date Dec. 20 is. Exactly 20 years ago this Saturday, Rumsfeld was a guest in Baghdad, his host none other than Hussein. As special envoy for President Reagan, Rumsfeld went to assure his host that he could count on America to be in his corner. This was done in spite of our knowledge of Hussein's use of chemical weapons against the Iranian military as well as civilians in both Iran and Iraq.
