Edina Sentinel celebrates 150 years


Tonight's Spirit of the Tri-States report brought to you by Continental Cement and Green American Recycling takes you to Knox County, Missouri.

That's where the Edina Sentinel is celebrating 150 years of serving northeast Missouri.

The newspaper's archives includes all of the community's happenings ranging from family birthdays to elections and local crime.

Editor Echo Menges says what makes the newspaper so special is the fact that it's owned and operated by local residents.

"We live here, we work here, it's really kind of for us, by us, rural news organization and we're really proud of it. Excited for the future," said Menges.

Owner and publisher Mike Scott says he's excited to see what the future holds for the newspaper.

"It's going to be print and it's going to be social media and whatever is next, because I don't know what next week, what new app is going to be evolving next week or next year, but we are going to be part of it," said Scott.

The Sentinel will host a fish fry this Saturday, April 21st, to celebrate its anniversary. The event starts at 5 p.m. and goes to 7 p.m.

Proceeds will go toward the Knox County Rescue Squad.
