I regret to announce that the March Street Edition of The Sentinel will most likely be our last. It’s an awkward way to announce this sort of thing. As publisher, there are thousands of readers, hundreds of businesses, scores of writers, activists and dear friends to consider. How does one impart this kind of news to everyone in a way that is fair? This is what I’ve come up with:
Last year was trying for most North Portland businesses. But for the past two years, the Sentinel has seen a steady decline in advertising revenue. This decline represents both the impact of the recession and the challenges of running an advertising-driven business in today's media-saturated environment. At present The Sentinel is 100% print advertising-driven, and it is now clear that we can no longer provide services to our readers and advertisers at our current level of quality. I hope I speak for all Sentinel contributors when I say we have worked exhaustively to provide the community with accurate, high-quality, professional news in a multi-media, interactive format. We hope that this paper served as a useful provider of information, an engaging tool for public discussion and a source for amusement and insight.
For the past two years, I and others involved with The Sentinel have been exploring the feasibility of a nonprofit business model, which at present remains undetermined. Currently, The Sentinel is considering a project to put all of the paper's archives online and in a format that is easily accessible to the public. However, this project cannot be completed without funding.
The Sentinel website will continue to provide daily service through the end of March 2010.

East Stroudsburg, PA, January 27, 2010 – The award-winning Pocono Business Journal will cease publication as of the February 2010 issue. Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Marynell Strunk cited the current economic climate and the shrinking print industry as the reasons for the paper’s end, to officially occur on February 5, 2010.
Strunk founded the newspaper over four years ago, launching the first issue in November 2005. She hired Debbie Burke as editor in August of 2007. The journal was also known for its Editors on the Road presentations and the monthly Business and Books events, as well as its weekly email update “Taste of PBJ.”
“Coming to this decision has been difficult. It has been a wonderful opportunity to meet and work with the regional business community. I have to thank the advertisers who believed in and supported the publication over the years.” says Strunk.
