Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION conducted and nice looking journal; a credit to the journalistic profession." Shomaker departed in 1898 when P. A. Poulsen became the lessee-manager and in succession the Messenger was published by Christen Axelsen, N. P. Nelson, J. L. Ewing, M. A. Boyden, S. Peter Petersen and William Henry Peterson. R. LaVaun Cox, son of Ephraim Enterprise publisher Roscoe, bought the Messenger on August 30, 1946. He would be at the helm until November 3, 1960 when Larry Stahle purchased the property. In turn, he stepped out of the publishing role on September 1, 1972, selling to Max E. Call, who was editor/publisher until November, 1993. At that time the Messenger was sold to Post Publishing Company, headed by Todd Newton. Almost a year to the date later, Newton's firm collapsed and Call again became publisher of the Messenger, Mt. Pleasant Pyramid One of Utah's earliest weeklies, it was launched December 6, 1890 and has been continuously produced since that time. It was preceded some 23 years earlier by a manuscript paper, The Sanpitcher, which had but a brief existence under editor David Candland. The Pyramid was founded by A. B. Williams, who after only six months turned it over to brothers J. M. and M. A. Boyden, the latter once a Salt Lake Times staff member. Though he returned to the Pyramid in partnership with the Boydens, in 1895 Williams moved on to a successful newspaper career in Medford, Oregon. When he left, his interest was sold to John J. Woodring, a silent partner. I. E. Jorgensen and C. N. Lund, Jr. would also be financially involved in the paper before, in March, 1911, Burke McArthur became the sole owner. A Mt. Pleasant native, he had learned basics of news-papering as a Pyramid printer's devil. McArthur had a competitor for only four years, from July, 1918 until May, 1922. It was the Mt Pleasant Call, published by the afore-mentioned C. N. Lund, Jr., who'd incurred the wrath of readers of his Sevier Valley Call in Salina and had almost forcibly been "encouraged" to depart that community. 34
