The Reflector - Laura Venneri: The Reflector Newspaper was established in 1909. Today we deliver our weekly paper to over 28,000 homes and businesses in our circulation area. Focusing on local news, events and community interests is what makes us unique. Laura Venneri is the General Manager at The Reflector Newspaper. In 1999, Laura and her husband moved from Gladstone, OR to Battle Ground, WA but she continued to work in downtown Portland. By 2004, she was tired of the commute and wanted to be involved in the community they lived in. She took a leap of faith, changed professions and began working for The Reflector. This change has allowed her to meet amazing individuals in our community and be a part of sharing their story.
