Our team appreciates and would like to thank all our readers and advertisers of the Rancho Mirage Insider for your tremendous support and community spirit during the launch of the Rancho Mirage Insider!
This month’s cover story features Steve and Michael Balian. Steve left Lebanon in the 1970s during tense hostilities within the nation. With only $400 in his pocket he was determined to build his American Dream, and through hard work and tenacity he accomplished it. His son Michael continues the legacy through the success of Carpet Empire in the Valley. Read their story on page 22.
This edition is also enriched with many of your local and talented writers such as Dave Herbert, Fred Solomon, Terri Fitzsimmons, Shannon Shea, Tom Lynott, Mara Brown and more. Be sure to read all their informative and interesting articles throughout the Rancho Mirage Insider. We are currently searching for local community members to share their stories. We are also seeking cover story nominations for the Rancho Mirage Insider. If you or someone you know is a community leader, business owner, volunteer, or simply has an inspirational story to be read by over 10,000 readers in Rancho Mirage, call me directly at 760-799-9383.
Regards, and thanks for reading!
