I have gathered a small team of Hispanic volunteers to develope the content and production of this Latino paper. Most of them are immigrants with dreams to grow in the American society, and to be productive citizens of the United States of America. Other contributors are local organizations and specific individuals that are always interested to assist and help in projects related to this ethnic group. We all are currently trying very hard to put together the content and production of the paper, with the same dedication and encouragement we had when we started our very first issue on Tuesday, February 3rd. 2004
We also have the support of some local Hispanic organizations, like the Spanish Action League (La Liga) in Syracuse, the West Side Learning Center, MANOS, La L.U.C.H.A. from Syracuse University, and other associations in New York State. Additionally, we have the generous assistance from local businesses, specially from Kassis Superior Signs (the owner Joseph and his wife Edda Caceres Kassis), and the Nye family from the famous Syracuse Blue Print. I also like to thank the participation and consideration provided by Mr. Eric West from The Mid-York Weekly & Pennysaver, who was our main printing service supplier when we started the paper in 2004; and thank you to the great patient and support from Sue Irvine, the sale representative of our current printer company. we also must thank the valuable advice and encouragement from Mr. Art Zimmer, owner and publisher of Syracuse New Times, one of the most successful newspapers in Central New York.
