    Orange County Register ^ | August 4, 2017 | Martin Wisckol
    A student painting that depicts the Statue of Liberty wearing a Muslim hijab, displayed in congressman Lou Correa’s Santa Ana office, is being attacked as an unpatriotic violation of the separation of church and state by members of We the People Rising, a Claremont-based activist group that advocates stricter enforcement of immigration laws. The group, including several Orange County participants, has asked without success that Correa remove the painting hanging with other finalists from the Democratic congressman’s student art competition. Because of the complaint, Correa said he asked the House Office of Legislative Counsel for advice and was told there...

    What’s in an address? Saying “625 North Grand Avenue” in Orange County doesn’t sound the same as saying “Times Square” in my native New York City. But the Orange County Register has left the storied address it called home in Santa Ana for 60 years – and the paper was based in the city for a total of 112 years. New place? A modest headquarters location just south of Angel Stadium in Anaheim.

    Orange County prosecutors next week are scheduled to argue against a defense motion to keep them from speaking in public about their criminal case against 11 student activists accused of disrupting an Israeli ambassador's speech at UC Irvine last year. The motion, filed in Orange County Superior Court's Central Justice Center in Santa Ana on Tuesday, accuses Deputy Dist. Atty. Dan Wagner, police and representatives from the district attorney's office of tainting the jury pool with public statements against the 11 defendants. Defense attorneys are seeking a court order that would keep prosecutors from talking publicly to the media or...

    Laguna Beach's LSD culture in the 1960s, a cranky widower befriended by his chatty neighbors and a man who's dealing with the fallout from his reality show days are all stories that will be told at the Newport Beach Film Festival this year. At this, the 17th annual festival, there are more than 400 features, short films and documentaries from 50 different countries. It's a chance to see things that likely won't appear elsewhere, especially in the United States. The festival starts this Thursday and runs until the following Thursday. "The largest misconception about any film festival is that these...

    Full title: 'Night Stalker' movie will premiere in Santa Ana, about 20 miles from the Mission Viejo site of his last crime A new film – “The Night Stalker,” starring Lou Diamond Phillips as Richard Ramirez – is set to premiere in Orange County in early June after producers decided the movie should be seen in an area that the serial killer terrorized in 1985. “We wanted to open in a place where he had an impact,” producer Matt Brady said. The film will be screened at The Frida Cinema, the art house theater in downtown Santa Ana, about 20...

    The Orange County Sheriff's Department is investigating a courthouse fight that broke out Wednesday between a District Attorney's investigator and a defense attorney who triumphed over prosecutors in a recent case involving jailhouse informants. The investigator and attorney got into an argument that turned physical around 10 a.m. in a hallway outside a 10th floor courtroom, Lt. Mark Stichter said. He didn't know what prompted the argument. But defense attorney James Crawford said he was attacked by a DA investigator he didn't recognize. "My back was to him and the next thing I know I find my head getting slammed...

The suspects were arrested at around 9 a.m. in the city's park district police area, according to San Francisco police officer Grace Gatpandan. Officials had said Friday that Hossein Nayeri, 37, and Jonathan Tieu, 20, were probably in the Bay Area and might be headed to Fresno. No details about the arrests were immediately available. The Orange County Sheriff's Department scheduled a press briefing for noon in Santa Ana. The location of the arrest was not provided. But...

Do the Chargers want to be pro football's Los Angeles Clippers or the sport's San Diego Padres? The National Football League franchise took another step closer to moving from San Diego to Los Angeles on Thursday by announcing it has acquired land and office space in Santa Ana. The idea is that the land could become home to the Chargers' team operations and training facility.

    SANTA ANA – Turns out, selling pot in Santa Ana isn’t going to be easy. Seven months after the city became the first Orange County municipality to hold a lottery to let small businesses sell medical marijuana, only two, South Coast Safe Access and OC3, are open. Reasons for the slow start are varied. Some landlords and neighboring businesses aren’t thrilled about the prospect of working with or near pot merchants. And those would-be pot sellers who have won over their neighbors say the city and local police – in spite of overwhelming approval from Santa Ana voters – aren’t...

Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department. He told them he was the fictional character Tarzan. Before authorities arrived, a shirtless Rodenborn had allegedly attempted to get into the zoo’s bird exhibit before he tried to swing into the monkey exhibit, Bertagna said. Kent Yamaguchi, the director of the zoo, told KTLA that the man was initially walking through the bird aviary, but then walked over to...

    Sounding like she’s on the verge of declaring her candidacy for U.S. Senate, Rep. Loretta Sanchez encouraged donors in Orange County to pony up Monday and explained why she would be a better choice than Attorney General Kamala Harris. Sanchez, a Santa Ana Democrat, has been meeting with Democratic and Latino leaders throughout the state as she weighs whether to join Harris, the only major declared Democratic candidate, in the 2016 race to replace retiring Sen.

In a video, Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, describes a pending meeting she had with an East Indian. “I am going to his office, thinking that I am going to meet with a,” she said, holding her hand in front of her mouth and making an echo sound. “Right?...because he said Indian American.”

    Weak fluorescent lights cast a sickly pall through the cheap motel room on Harbor Boulevard, where one undercover police officer shimmied into skin-tight leggings and another into stiletto heels. Both beds in room 320 were shoved against a wall to accommodate another dozen police officers, prosecutors and news types assembled for the sting. Requisite jokes were cracked about the quilted bedspreads – sit at your own risk – but a pair of heavy handcuffs on the desk belied any frivolity. Out on Harbor, an undercover Santa Ana police officer strutted in cheetah print and bed slippers. A fluorescent pink-orange brassiere...

    Recently, the House passed, by an overwhelming margin, a resolution to condemn the Russian Federation for actions considered hostile and aggressive within its sphere of influence, specifically with regard to the politically torn country of Ukraine. Ten Members voted “nay,” myself among them. I wish to explain why I took this unpopular position. Above all, while Vladimir Putin’s government may well have engaged in questionable behavior toward neighboring countries, Resolution 758 was nothing more than gratuitous, needlessly provocative and shortsighted. Moreover, reasonable observers the world over can see it as tantamount to a declaration that Russia is America’s enemy. The...
