120 Years: 1928

On Nov. 20, The Daily Sentinel celebrated its 35th anniversary at the Country Club. A dinner of turkey dressing with oyster stuffing, creamed potatoes, carrots en timbale and cranberry frappe was served. Walter Walker presided over the program with Samuel G. McMullin, Capt. James Melville Kennedy and Merle M. McClintock speaking.

William Moyer was introduced as the oldest and largest advertiser, and Earl Hoisington was recognized as “Dean of the Sentinel Organization.” Dancing to the Howard Hembrey Orchestra followed. With a circulation of 5,200, Al Look’s On Guard column begins to run in the paper.

On the west end, the Mesa County Mail becomes the Fruita Times.
