What the Yost looked like on November 3rd, 2007

It’s been a hectic week since the Weekly first broke the news that SanTana’s El Centro Cultural de Mexico will soon find itself without a space to host its classes and community programs. In that time, the Voice of OC and The Santa Ana Register blog have chimed in on the issue. The two media outlets raised the relationship between Irv Chase, the controversial property owner of many of the buildings Fourth Street businesses rent out, and the Broadway Improvement Co. that owns the Knights of Pythias building in question. (His father-in-law Allan Fainbarg is a substantial stakeholder)

Chase’s son, Ryan, says in the Voice of OC’s take that he and his father did not know of the situation at El Centro until reading about it in Register’s OC Latino Link blog, but the two are virtually in agreement as to why the tenants need to go. Do the comments made by Irv Chase regarding the situation at Centro hold weight? What about Ryan Chase’s suggestion for a new location?
