Title Page605
Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME In 1928, too, as a service to the sportsminded, a Play-O-Graph, enabling spectators to somewhat visually follow the World Series, was installed in a second floor window of the paper's new building. In 1929, the full United Press wire service was added, enabling the Herald to provide greater national and international news coverage. In the meantime, on May 9, 1924, the Post had been sold to the Herald and shortly thereafter Nephi Hicks, who'd introduced Gunnar to newspapering, became its County Editor. Five months later, W. H. Hornibrook purchased Rodgers' interests and became publisher. And two years after that, on September 14, 1926, the Herald was acquired by the Scripps League of Newspapers. Operations were thereafter under the guidance of a corporation headed by Gunnar as Chairman of the Board. In five short years, he'd risen from a novice reporter to overall management of one of the more prestigious out-state dailies. That this transplanted citizen of Sweden was enthralled with his new home is evidenced by the opening article of a series he wrote for the Herald in 1925: "Let me have Utah County and you may have the rest of the world," he penned. "God never created a more perfect and ideal location than Utah County; neither did He make a duplicate of it. All the good things necessary for the enjoyment of life and the pursuit of happiness He placed here and added stores of riches not to be found elsewhere. "He gave to this section the most fertile and productive soil known and provided lofty mountain peaks as storehouses for the snow with which to water the crops during the heat of the growing season," the article continued. "Man's ingenuity added to these natural resources has given to this county more water per acre than almost any other district in the Intermoun-tain country. While He was kind to an unusual degree in placing beauty spots of scenery throughout the Rocky Mountains, He lavished more scenic wonders in Utah County. Everywhere you see places of grandeur and majesty. 605
