10/08/07 - The prize: Region's growing Latino readership

Source: HispanicTrending

For 11 years, El Sol has been the dominant Spanish-language newspaper in Stamford, dispensing news to a growing Hispanic population and drawing lucrative advertising dollars.

But the weekly publication now faces stiff competition from two other newspapers.

El Sol's longtime rival, La Voz Hispana, a New Haven-based weekly, opened a Stamford bureau last September. In November, William Caceres, a former El Sol and La Voz Hispana sales executive, started the biweekly Enfoque Latino....

While the debate rages on whether to let illegal immigrants get driver's licenses, Yonkers car dealer Rulaman De Leon is looking at some of the practicalities.

In business for 20 years, he often sees car buyers paying in cash, leaving for a few days and coming back with out-of-state plates and insurance. He can venture a guess that these customers are undocumented immigrants, heading to states where they can get driver's licenses and registrations.

Other potential buyers keep asking if there's some way to get a New York license without a Social Security number.

Rock arbiter still believes in 'the wisdom of the pop audience'

You might think the man who has had a big say in the music coverage of Rolling Stone since 1997 must be a rock snob by definition. Not so, says Joe Levy, executive editor of the magazine since February 2006.''

I still believe in the pop audience, and in the wisdom of the pop audience, that the pop audience validates interesting music by buying, listening and responding to it,'' says Levy, whose publication has a circulation of 1.3 million and a readership of 13 million.

While there are fewer central figures and the scene is more diffuse, Levy maintains, ''There is still good music near the top of the charts. Young, challenging, inventive rock bands such as such as The Arcade Fire and Spoon put out records that can be in the Billboard Top 20.....

... In the long term I may have be proven correct, but that year I wasn't exactly right.'' Levy, who was born in Port Chester, N.Y., in 1964, remembers the first single he bought was 10cc's ''The Things We Do for Love.'' His first albums were ...
