Bernal: Saving Santana’s Artwalk

First Saturday is a time when locals and OC residents would normally be streaming into Santa Ana’s downtown to experience performances, hear musicians, see the latest art exhibitions, patronize restaurants as well as small businesses, and connect with each other.

“Your Covid-19 reporting has been refreshingly blunt, heavy on facts and stats (not the normal high level, vague and sterilized information that’s difficult to assess) and thankfully apolitical.
