The popular weekend swap meet at Pierce College will be canceled for at least the first week in June because the former operator of the event, dismissed ostensibly because of financial questions, has charged that the real motive is racial discrimination. The college's foundation had voted not to renew the swap meet agreement with Norton Western Ltd., a firm run by a controversial former Santa Ana city councilman, Richards Norton, and instead hired Straight Talk Inc.

The City Council has approved a new tax on swap meets, despite protests from a charitable organization that says the action means paying thousands in new taxes rather than using the money in anti-drug efforts. The protest came from Straight Talk Inc., a Cypress-based, nonprofit organization that counsels young people against drug and alcohol abuse. A Straight Talk official said the organization raises a "substantial" part of its annual income from a swap meet held weekly at Cypress College.
