Community newspaper celebrates 128 years

Ramona Sentinel

starts its 128th year as the community’s newspaper with this issue and, starting with the first issue in March, it will have a new look.

When the

Sentinel

changed hands in November, the most common question was: What does this mean for our community newspaper? Other than a stronger resource base, there’s been no change in this paper’s mission to report the goings-on in town, whether they be the planning group and school board or the garden club and Pony Baseball.

In two weeks, readers will see a physical change as the Sentinel returns to two sections. The news section will be what’s called a broadsheet, the large format readers were familiar with until the decision was made several years ago to publish as a tabloid.

Tucked inside the broadsheet will be our Community section in a tabloid format. We hope you like the change.

Owners, come and go. Owners, publishers, general managers and editors have changed in the past 128 years, but the

Ramona Sentinel

belongs to the community it serves.

This is your community newspaper where you can read the latest high school sports scores, shake your fist at or shake the hand of an opinion writer, and perhaps smile when you see photos of wild turkeys heading for the hills the week before Thanksgiving — or the school principal who has earned a doctorate make good on a promise to students and kiss twin goats.
