our story

We, Nicole and Travis Rogers, started the Sentinel & Rural News in March of 2014.  A retired editor-in-chief of the Seattle Times told Travis, “Create the newspaper that you want to read. There will be enough people who want to read the same thing.” He had also said that it was our job to offend half the people this week and the other half next week. We took the former advice but not the latter. We wanted to create a newspaper that told good news and highlighted the people and businesses of Central Wisconsin. And there is such good news to tell. That good news was not just in the “Twin Cities” of Owen-Withee but all over Clark County and the southern portion of Taylor County, even Rusk County. We started carrying the good news of Owen-Withee, Thorp, Greenwood, Gilman, Abbotsford, Colby, Spencer, and beyond. So, the Sentinel & Rural News is the paper that we love to read. Happily, there are more than enough people who feel the same.
