Park Labrea News & Beverly Press publishers, Michael and Karen Villalpando, were honored on Tuesday, May 25 as “Small Business of the Year” by Assembly member Mike Feuer, 42nd District, at a ceremony in Sacramento.

“I’m pleased to honor the Park Labrea News and the Beverly Press as the 42nd Assembly District’s Small Business of the Year.  In this era of shrinking media outlets and ‘soundbyte’ news stories, the Villalpandos continue to provide thoughtful, robust coverage of local events and issues,” Feuer said.

“It is my honor to recognize today two highly distinguished small business owners, two highly distinguished journalists, for helping keep a very far flung community in Los Angeles knit closely together, Karen and Michael Villalpando,” Feuer said as he presented the couple with a commemorative plaque.

    Congratulations
    The Beverly Press has been a top-shelf newspaper for a long time, from a content perspective, and this recognition of your business acumen and its amplification of the paper’s value to the business community is very well deserved this year.
