A local Latino business group launched Thursday, calling itself "the go-to organization" for companies wanting to tap into the Obama administration's stimulus package. And although most agree there's room for another group advocating for Latino-owned businesses, there is debate over what the Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles will do that isn't already being done.

The gig: Miguel Gonzalez Reynoso, 63, is co-president of Northgate Gonzalez Markets, a chain of family-owned supermarkets in Southern California. Its first store was small, a 2,500-square-foot market that opened in Anaheim in 1980. Recognize a good name: That store on Anaheim Boulevard took over space formerly occupied by a market called Northgate. The family couldn't afford to change the sign, so it kept the name. Now, he's happy they did. "We came to think of Northgate as the door of opportunity for us, coming from the south," said Gonzalez Reynoso, whose large family, with 13 brothers and sisters, hails from Mexico's Jalisco state.

Local minority businesses are pushing for reforms they say will get more of the Los Angeles city government's $1.1 billion in annual contracts into the hands of such firms and those owned by women and service-disabled military veterans. A report advocating the reforms "The Case for Minority Business Contracting Reform in the City of Los Angeles," was released Oct. 19 by the Greater Los Angeles African American Chamber of Commerce. It argued that the proposals would contribute to the city's overall economic recovery.

It turned out to be a year more daunting than many Los Angeles-area small-business owners had expected, and hopes are dimming for a noticeable economic rebound in the new year. Credit troubles continued to dog many. And though some categories of small-business lending increased, the money typically went to businesses that had plans to expand, not to those desperate to keep the doors open. Even those that managed to bring in more revenue this year often found their profit margins squeezed by customers clamoring for lower prices.

Step through the glass doors of Eso Won Bookstore, the landmark but struggling Leimert Park shop specializing in African American titles, and you'll see shelves stacked with civil rights classics by Martin Luther King Jr., poetry by Maya Angelou and important fiction including James Baldwin's "Another Country." Their ranks will be thinned substantially when co-owner James Fugate switches to more bargain-priced books when restocking his shelves next year in a bid to boost sales. Too much money is tied up in the slow-moving back-list tomes, which sell for $15 or more, he said.
