Mesa County experienced only 11 entirely cloudy days in 1914. With World War I taking the local boys off to Europe to fight, workers are brought in to help harvest the 3,100 railroad cars of fruit and other produce.

  A new fire station is built at 611 Colorado Ave. and Herman W. Vorbeck opens his sporting goods store at 512 Main St.

The Daily Sentinel begins printing local photographs in its papers and Snuffy Smith becomes the first serial cartoon strip to appear in the paper.
