Bellflower gets surprise visit

Press-Telegram reporter Joe Segura sent in the following:

Business staff writer Karen Robes Meeks returned to her roots Monday, telling the Bellflower City Council that the Press-Telegram isn't covering Long Beach area communities.

She also expressed sadness that the newspaper has abandoned its traditional base of community coverage, because it deserved coverage.

Samantha Gonzaga, who has moved on with another career effort, said in a prepared statement that she shares the concerns, adding that the company had reported a 34 percent increase in the second quarter net income."

Joe Segura added that the lack of coverage is weakening society's right to know what's happening in their communities.

Karen received a warm welcome from both council members and community residents, who expressed deep concern for the lack of coverage.
