A Special Thanks

I just got back from a whirlwind tour of Washington, D.C. and New York City. I was fortunate to win the honor of Small Business Journalist of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration. It was certainly an honor.
I was able to visit the White House at a reception with President George Bush, attend a gayla in DC where I received my award and attend the closing of NASDAQ in New York’s Times Square. It was quite an experience.
I must say, however, that I felt un-deserving of the honor. I think the honor should really go to all the employees who currently work at SBM and for Judy Meador, who really worked diligently to get the paper up off the ground and continue the mission of helping business owners succeed.
The real winners are our current employees and our supporters, who go to work each day with one goal in mind: help businesses in the region succeed and encourage renewed commerce in our region.
To all of you—thank you from the bottom of my heart.
--Ron Ameln, SBM
