Our Story

The South Platte Sentinel Publishing Company Inc. formed in April 1988 as an "S" Corporation with the sole purpose of publishing a weekly newspaper in Sterling, CO. The community based newspaper publishes 8,300 issues weekly which is distributed freely throughout Logan County communities by mail and at exclusive pick-up-points throughout the community. As a free weekly newspaper promoting community events and people in Logan County, the success of the South Platte Sentinel lies in its ability to provide news and advertising strictly on a local basis. Although its free circulation is a major selling point, readership is not guaranteed by distribution. The South Platte Sentinel does not rely on its cost value to the advertiser alone as its strong point. Instead, the Sentinel relies strongly on its reputation as being a news leader in the community

In the paper yesterday, the best of the best listed all the people and business that were voted the best, but I am confused on the Best Electrician? It named Robirds Electric as the best but below it talked about Buzz Electric and not Robirds Electric so why?
Thank you for bringing Awareness to Domestic Violence in the Sentinel and JA. October is Domestic Violence Month. Haven't seen anything mentioned from either paper on Domestic Violence. In light of the Gabby DV, I would have thought the papers would bring Awareness to the Community. Trick or treating is much more important. Silence hides Violence. Thank you South Platte Sentinel and Journal Advocate. We can always count on you all!!
