Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION 1908 revived the Washington County News. This time it succeeded and Wallis remained at the helm until December 8, 1927, when he leased it to John F. Stauffer. Edgar R. Simpson, a Californian intent on improving his health through the Dixie climate, bought the News on April 1, 1933. On July 10, 1947, he sold the property to Clyde and Nora Lyman and they, on June 30, 1958, transferred it to Francis W. (Frank) Mountford, formerly of the Wasatch Wave and the Pay son Chronicle. Upon his death, October 10,1973, his sons Asa and James, became owners and co-publishers. In March, 1986 they sold the paper to John Rogers, former resident publisher of the Color Country Spectrum, a daily which had developed in St. George. Rogers published the News until March 1, 1988, when its doors were closed. SANDY Though it had a relatively-early newspaper and intermittently has had publications bearing a local dateline during more than a century, Sandy has yet to enjoy a long-term paper with its name in the masthead. Brothers Charles P. and Isaac E. Diehl, newsmen with Nebraska roots, provided the community its first paper, the Independent, in December, 1893. They didn't tarry long in the southern extremes of Salt Lake County, passing the publication on to John E. Hartvikxen in its second year. Somewhat surprisingly, it might be added, since the Brigham Bugler had editorially observed early in the Independent's life, "It is a brisk and well patronized new venture in the journalistic field." Its second publisher, he of the unusual name, Hartvikxen, sold to James H. Hayford on October 3, 1897. And the Independent moved from there to obscurity, leaving only an occasional edition in private collections to prove it had existed. The Sandy Sentinel arrived and departed in 1899, a venture of the widely-travelled and seldom successful James Jakeman. In 1912, W. D. S. Harrington briefly tested Sandy newspaper waters with his Enterprise, failing swiftly. A year later J. S. Barlow of the Murray Eagle began the Sandy Star. 76
