Dolphin Winners for 2003


The Malibu Times publishers, Arnold and Karen Portugal York, announce the 2003 Dolphins Awards, recognizing individual or group contributions to the Malibu community. As in years past, many of those being honored this year are more than just individuals or groups who have made a significant contribution to Malibu; they are in many ways the heart and soul of this city.
