The difference between us and them


Nothing says more about the glaring differences between news organizations and public relations firms then this e-mail sent to my editor from BLAZE, a Santa Monica PR firm.

This past weekend was a cause for celebration in the city of La Puente. Mayor Pro Tem Dan Holloway joined with 7-Eleven to welcome store owners, husband and wife team Satwinder Sidhu and Ronnie Sekhon, to their new Sunset Ave. store at the grand opening celebration on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Mayor Pro Tem Holloway presented Sidhu and Sekhon with a Certificate of Recognition to honor their contributions to the La Puente community before officiating a ribbon cutting ceremony to christen the new store. This is Sidhu and Sekhon’s second 7-Eleven in La Puente.

A 7-Eleven opening! So sorry I missed it.
