It has certainly taken awhile, but there is concrete (literally) proof that not all of the federal money aimed at staving off The Great Recession has gone to Wall Street.
Anyone who wants to see their federal stimulus dollars at work can go to Magnolia Avenue in Anaheim and look down. Right there is $1.1 million in tax dollars digging up the battered street, replacing concrete and adding curbs, gutters and sidewalks.
Anaheim has now received about $20.3 million in stimulus funds for a variety of energy, water, housing, public safety and other projects, according to Greg Garcia, deputy city manager for administration.
