    Matthew 25:31-46 These whiners are the same people that preach at the poor and blame them, who have no boots, for not pulling themselves up by their bootstraps. I’m not so sure a piano store has legitimate concern about people vs the economy and general location problems of being far from music schools and customers. If the Shelter has plenty of onsite space for people to sit maybe in the shade, maybe some raised garden beds and a room for low cost yoga classes or other community classes local biz people or residents can participate in too, that could benefit all even more.

    Now the thousands wounded by Dan Harkey, the husband of Board of Equalization member Diane who were victimized by his scheme may have a place to live. He still has not paid one cent to them (us) of his Elder Financial Abuse award of $12,000,000 from two years ago…..

      WOW ! where is a link to this? Are there too many zeros on that fine?

        There were 3,000 investors in the $500,000,000 Point Center Financial. Harkey convinced the majority that when the “Great Recession” finished, he would make good. 83 of us did not believe him and sued. He did not make good, nor did he pay the court award to the plaintiffs. The elderly who did not sue are out their money, completely.There are many links online. You can start with Sipolski/Harkey.

      You need to remove your cap-lock if you want anyone to be able to read what you have written.

      Biz moves out as the housing prices rise already are too high to support affordable workers for small and med biz. I read many of the newer buyers are foreigners and OC people sitll have few affordbale options and many need subsidy from charity or govt becaue the Housing in OC is a Suppliers Market – no say from demand is being heard. In a Free Market there would be a good supply of housing for the lower income workers, seniors and disabled in every city in OC.

    Who are all these organizations that paraded around the BoS yesterday promoting the dire need of a homeless shelter at this location? Where were they when Fullerton was brought up as a potential site? Where were they when Santa Ana was brought up as a potential site?

    Not a peep from any of them, until yesterday. Shame on all of you.

    Two cities buy in (Fullerton/Anaheim) to keep it as far away from their populace as possible and the County can also say buh-bye to the homeless problems around Civic Center. No more AB109 dropoffs to worry about. It’s someone else’s problem right?

    Oh and get ready for the River Trail to turn into a homeless highway, just like the encampment on Katella, next to Honda Center.

    It never ceases to amaze me how reactive people could be, basing their reactions on no facts but their own fantasies. Pumping up all sorts of reasons e.g., no one will shop in my store across the street, etc. Permanent homeless housing exists in every major city in the US, many adjacent to major businesses who, rather than be harmed, actually benefited by having a compassionate enterprise next door. Perhaps the piano guy can get a tax deduction for his business by donating a piano to the shelter and provide free piano lessons as a community service. He might even find someone, down in their luck he could hire in various capacities. In many cities, including San Francisco and L.A., homeless advocates began businesses that turned into major operations like gourmet restaurants, run by the previously homeless.

    It seems to me that it would be best to place the shelter as close as possible to the Orange County Civic Center in Santa Ana. That way the homeless people will still be able to spend their days on the mall there, and then not have too far to travel to get to their beds at night. If they put it on Kraemer in Anaheim how are the homeless people going to get back and forth to their daytime spot at the Civic Center?

      I read a proposed site in SA was rejected. There needs to be sites in N, S, W and central county and separate facilites for people who need rehab of various types.
