Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION 1909 with the Times. Published by Joseph S. Barlow of the neighboring Murray Eagle, in partnership with C. I. Goff, the paper lasted less than a year. In 1914 a more-successful venture, the Messenger, emerged with J. S. Barlow as publisher. It would continue until 1922 under Barlow and then in 1933 became a victim of the Great Depression. Its final co-publishers were J. L. Ewing, D. M. Clark and Vernon Gray. During the mid-1920s and early Depression years, the Midvale Journal was linked with the Murray Eagle and the Draper Journal in a 2,000-plus circulation triumvirate which sought to link the three south-county communities.

The Godfreys turned publishing duties over to their son, David, and son-in-law, James Landers, on October 1, 1972. Their publication extended into the West Jordan, Riverton and Bluffdale area as it went through substantial population growth. They were co-publishers until selling to Diversified Suburban Newspapers on September 1, 1984. The Sentinel was then absorbed into the Green Sheet group. When R.
