|Tennessean article about HispanicNashville.com published last Saturday|
This past Saturday, the final day of Hispanic Heritage Month 2011, and less then a week before this site's 8th anniversary, The Tennessean wrote a feature about me and HispanicNashville.com. It ran on page 1 of the Local/Business section. Thanks to Nancy DeVille for researching and writing the article and to her editors for the story idea.
The electronic edition of the piece will be online for a few weeks, and it contains quotes from me, Fabian Bedne, and Renata Soto. Here are a couple of my quotes:
“Nashville does celebrate its Hispanic residents, and I want to be part of that.”
“[The site] might be a reference for people, it might help dispel stereotypes and might be a record of what’s been going on in Nashville.”Read the full story here.
The print edition, for those of you who didn't see it, carried the headline, "He'll keep you up with the Lopezes." The copywriters came up with that one; they have the hard job of hitting all the right notes in a headline. It's a spin on the familiar phrase "keeping up with the Joneses" - doubly so - in that it changes the original in two ways ("keeping up with" is presumably meant as just "knowing what's going on with," and then "Jones" becomes "Lopez").
Some of you read the story over the weekend and sent some nice words my way – thank you.
