In January, I wrote that the Placer Sentinel has folded after 19 years. “After looking at our end-of-the-year financials and the probability of the economy hopping back soon, we have reluctantly decided to cease publishing,” according to a letter at the time from Publisher Janice Forbes, chief executive Bob Evans and Editor Donna Lach.
The new publisher is Paul V. Scholl, with 25 years of experience in newspaper and magazine publishing.
The “new” community-oriented newspaper is producer to readers largely in Placer County. Distribution is by U.S. mail, home delivery about about 250 locations (newsstands, retailers and restaurants).
“Your support is what makes it possible to give our community what it really wants in a hometown newspaper,” Paul writes on the Sentinel’s website.
