Anaheim lost the Rams first to St. Louis, then to L.A. Then it lost the name of the Angels, who now are called the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but usually referred to just as the L.A. Angels, abbreviated LAAaaaaaaaa.

But they’re gaining the Orange County Register, where I wrote for most of the past 29 years, which will move there next March. The paper long was the Santa Ana Register. So now it has to be called the Anaheim Register of Santa Ana.

Reported the Anaheim Register of Santa Ana, “The Register newsroom and business staff will relocate to 2190 Towne Centre Place, just south of Angel Stadium, Register Publisher Ron Hasse announced Wednesday. Printing the newspaper will continue through April 2017 at 625 N. Grand Ave. in Santa Ana, a facility owned by Orange County developer Mike Harrah. The Register’s Santa Ana-based printing operations eventually will move to existing printing plants in Riverside and on Lewis Street in Anaheim.”

But how long will it even be “printed” by a parent company whose name is Digital First Media, DFM?

The article doesn’t note how many printing jobs will be lost to Santa Ana. But the new Harrah development likely will create hundreds of full-time jobs, and maybe thousands during construction.

Well, at least I won’t have the longer commute from Huntington Beach way up to Anaheim.
