The Northridge earthquake has dealt a more serious blow to San Fernando's small business community than was previously thought, according to the city's Chamber of Commerce. Based on preliminary estimates, the temblor caused $12 million to $24 million in structural damage to businesses, said Bruce Cohen, executive vice president of the chamber. "Let me tell you, that is just the tip of the iceberg," Cohen said Friday.

A new agency to provide financial help for small businesses in the economically distressed northeast San Fernando Valley has been created under a bill signed by Gov. Gray Davis. The bill provides about $5 million for business loan guarantees. The legislation by Assemblyman Tony Cardenas (D-Sylmar) follows a study that identified the northeast Valley as one of five areas in the state in which small businesses have the most difficulty acquiring capital.

There's an easy way to tell how the small businesses along one block in Northridge are faring six months after the Jan. 17 earthquake ravaged the area. Just look at the shopkeepers' faces. Laura D'Angelo is the owner of the Kids at Heart gift shop in the Northridge Garden Center strip mall on Reseda Boulevard, just north of the infamous Northridge Meadows apartments where 16 people died.

Judith Segura used to think the key to running a good meat market in La Puente was serving up the tastiest fried pork strips in town. But then she took her first business classes, as part of a minority entrepreneur seminar run by the Valley Economic Development Center, and discovered the power of coupons, direct mail and the synergy between her family's tortilla factory, bakery and check-cashing service.

In the San Fernando Valley, you might call 1994 the Year of the Pizza. Or the Cup of Coffee. Or even the Used Car. But don't even think, according to local small business owners, of calling 1994 a great year for business. No matter whom you talk to, 1994 will be remembered as the Year of the Quake, an event that has shaken the way people do business here--crippling the customer base of many shop owners, literally leveling the establishments of others.

From the door of her small shop on Reseda Boulevard, Roya Saberzadeh surveyed the scene outside. Along the block, one apartment building after another was condemned, including the Northridge Meadows complex just across the street, where 16 people died in the Jan. 17 earthquake. The National Guard troops that had patrolled the area in the first days after the temblor were gone.

A civic suit seeking thousands of dollars in punitive damages was filed Tuesday by the Los Angeles County district attorney against a Woodland Hills woman who has been selling her popular home-baked cookies for more than a decade. The suit accuses Jeanne Kravitz of baking cookies in unsanitary conditions, including in the garage, laden with rat feces, of her Valley Circle Boulevard home.
