Our purpose is to serve our community with truthful, timely and professional coverage of local news and events — with a focus on stories that tend to go unnoticed in other media reports.

Our focus is local because we’ve noticed that larger news sources in our region often overlook important things going on in our city, as their reach is too broad to cover what they consider “small-town news.” We hope to fill this void by exclusively covering stories within our city borders and helping raise visibility to local events that build our community together.

If you have a local event you’d like us to cover in our reporting, please use the form on our Submit News page.

Also be sure to sign up for The Sentinel’s free Weekend Edition to get our top news stories delivered to your inbox once a week! You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook for more regular updates.
