To the editor;
“Congratulations to The Sentinel and its steadfast owners, the Kapiloff family, for holding to their high standard of editorial integrity for many, many years, in the face of ever-increasing challenges for small media companies.
“It was my privilege to work as a rookie reporter at the paper some 48 years ago, under the tough tutelage of its legendary editor, Roger Farquhar.
“I learned valuable professional lessons from my superiors and my peers, such as its staff photographer, Andy Schneider, who later went into reporting and won two Pulitzer Prizes at the Pittsburgh Press. When I resigned to take a reporting job on Capitol Hill, I created a staff vacancy that was quickly filled by The Sentinel’s greatest hire ever—a very hungry reporter named Bob Woodward.
“All of us at The Sentinel in the ‘70s were grateful to Leonard and Bernard Kapiloff for fostering excellence at their small but distinguished suburban weekly—a legacy that continues today.”
