I spent New Year's weekend with a friend from my City on a Hill days and she filled me in on the latest news of the alternative newspaper business. I was able to fill her in on what had happened to the Sentinel, and I realized that I hadn't posted anything about it. The paper was sold last year, and the April 30, 2007 paper was the last one printed in Santa Cruz. 150 years of daily newspapers in Santa Cruz and it ended. But the best part was being able to tell her about the wreck. As the scrapped presses were carried over the hill to their doom, they attempted to escape and closed highway 17 for hours. Soon after, Tom Honig retired, and now we're stuck with that Christian right-winger Don Miller as the editor.
