Joseph L. Arbona has had his share of difficulties since launching El Eco del Valle, a twice-weekly tabloid newspaper, from a small San Fernando office two years ago. A major metropolitan daily has tried more than once to hire away his most valued employee--his sales manager. And he competes in the San Fernando Valley with La Opinion, a much larger and more established Spanish-language paper that also happens to be El Eco's new owner.

The demise of El Eco del Valle, which published its final edition Thursday, leaves the San Fernando Valley without a Spanish-language newspaper devoted to local news for the first time in more than a decade. El Eco's chief competitor, the weekly El Universal, distributes mostly in the Valley but has no reporters based here and does not emphasize Valley news, preferring international, national and regional coverage.
