Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Henderson. Today, his son, Lane, is at the helm. Elisha Warner has been inducted into the Newspaper Hall of Fame.

The first was the Tooele County Times, established in 1892 and halted March 3, 1894. The Brigham Bugler commented that the Times had "lately succumbed to the terrific strokes of Hard Times.
