Title Page93
Description "YOUNG" PAPERS THAT ACTUALLY ARE OLD June 16, 1937, fire destroyed the plant and for five months the paper was produced by mimeograph while equipment to resume letterpress printing was purchased and set up in a new location. Platte D. Lyman became a lessee-publisher on April 28, 1949 and on April 20,1951, the paper was purchased by Birl J. Brewington, who was also publisher of the Press in nearby Dove Creek, Colorado. William McCormick, a Dove Creek banker, and uranium millionaire Charlie Steen took over financial responsibility for the Record before Larry and Betty Roe bought it on May 6,1954. They were succeeded early in 1956 by Warren Rex and on August 23, 1956 by James P. (Pat) Heal, formerly co-publisher of papers in Murray and Lehi. On July 10, 1959, W. J. Olds, once a publisher in Sharon Springs, Kansas, acquired the Record, then sold it on November 11, 1960 to Mr. and Mrs. George E. Jones. H. V. (Bert) Alward of Pullman, Washington, replaced Jones as the publisher on July 8,1965. Miles and Jane Turnbull of Chicago bought the paper May 13, 1971. Both had been employed by the magazine-publishing Meredith Corporation, he with Successful Farming and she with Better Homes & Gardens. Mr. Turnbull's parents were longtime owners of the Reporter in Diagonal, Iowa. The Miles Turnbulls purchased the Echo in Leavenworth, Washington and left Monticello on May 27,1976. He later became executive director of the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association and was a journalism faculty member at Central Washington University, but returned to the Echo upon retiring from the WNPA position. Not long after selling the newspaper, he was the victim of a fatal heart attack on June 11,1994. Jim and Gertrude Shannon of Lexington, Missouri bought the Record from the Turnbulls and were the publishers until September 4, 1980. At that time sisters Joyce Martin and Ingrid Adams acquired the paper. They continued until turning the reins to Greg Duerden on October 1, 1992, then resumed as publishers on April 4,1994. 93
