Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME in the columns of that somewhat historic edition, and written in the forthright no-nonsense terms readers had come to expect of him, were these words of Editor Loren L. (Bish) Taylor: "To avoid unkind criticism: say nothing, be nothing, do nothing. The policy of the Times in the past will be the policy of the future. We shall continue to work for the development of Southeastern Utah; to publish all the news no matter whom it strikes; and to advocate those moves that will result in civic and moral betterment." During the next four decades, this editor -- soft spoken, but, when necessary, tough-as-flint - would continue to play a major role in promoting and molding the potential of agriculture, mining and tourism in the colorful, though sparsely populated county in which the Times circulated. In 1916 when he'd reiterated his policy, Taylor was only 24, but already a veteran of five years in the demanding country newspaper business of early-day Utah. On February 24, 1911, when he'd first taken editorial control of the Times, he'd been just 18 - an age when modern journalists are still learning the 'five W's and the H' of news writing. Despite his youth, he was prepared for the task. Growing up the eighth in a family of 10 children and exposed to a rather harsh early life, he'd been forced to mature earlier than most youngsters. His parents, Arthur A. and Sena Jensen Taylor, had been pioneer Moab area settlers and, though one of their youngest, he'd learned early in life how to make his own way. The Taylor family of the 1890's had cattle and sheep interests. They also assisted in the operation of a ferry boat on the Colorado River, which flowed in a half-circle around Moab 627
