Title ChapterSeven-Page127
Description CHAPTER SEVEN Suburban Salt Lake Papers Struggled Several newspapers were unveiled, then buried, in and around the state's largest cities well into the early to mid-19008. Most had Salt Lake City origins or were located in its suburbs. Ogden, too, saw a suburban effort which failed. Principals among those publications of general circulation were these: The Salt Lake Times, begun in June, 1920 in Sugar House and the Salt Lake Mining and Legal News. The papers had more or less common roots and were published by Earl J. Glade, who would later become Mayor of Salt Lake City. The Times was purchased by William H. Hornibrook on August 23, 1923 and in 1932 was sold to George L. Crowther. From then until his death in 1951, Crowther wrote a humorous column, "Tony Spaghetti," which, among its diverse topics, derided errant politicians. Under Crowther the publication's course as a legal newspaper was set. Glenn Bjornn purchased the paper in 1952 upon the death of Crowther. Although generally regarded as a weekly representing Democratic party views, the paper's masthead under Bjornn insisted, "This publication is not owned or controlled by any party, clan, clique, faction or corporation." After Bjornn's death, January 3, 1980, his son, Richard L. Bjornn, became the publisher. He was in charge when the paper closed its doors in financial distress in 1991. Its name and good will were purchased out of bankruptcy by Bonnie Miller, publisher of a competing legal weekly, The Intermoun-tain Commercial Record, and the Times was merged into that paper. The Daily Record, founded by Harry B. Miller, was the fore-runner of the purchasing publication. After Miller's retirement it was published by his son, Robert. Changing to 127
