According to owner, editor Tamara Sniffin, this is a huge milestone for the paper she and her husband Ron have owned and operated for more than half of its life. “It is a great honor to be part of a community institution like The San Pedro Sun. Owning a community newspaper comes with great responsibility and commitment, regardless of the challenges we may face. We embrace those who have supported us along the way and are thankful to be part of their success through featured articles and advertising. Without them, we could not be what we are today and thank our community from the bottom of our hearts.”
