My bilingual writing is deemed worthy of publication by Frank Moraga, editor of the Amigos805 Newsletter and former business editor of the Ventura County [California] Star newspaper. He writes, “David Magallanes’s articles are an essential voice of calm, insight and reason for our readers in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.

“Since his first column on Feb. 3, 2011 ‘Our thoughts, our money, our life,’ the audience in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties region have been blessed with the written wisdom of David Magallanes. From articles exploring family life, to cultural heritage and education, David has explored each subject with skill, a personal insight and a gentle guiding hand to help readers explore a variety of subjects and think about how they impact their daily lives. David’s bilingual columns have also opened the door to a whole new, and often under-served community in the region. May our readers continue to be blessed by this wonderful,  gifted and gentle voice. — Frank X. Moraga, editor/Publisher,
