July 12, 1999 | RICHARD WINTON, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
For 92 years, the weekly Sierra Madre News chronicled the history of its namesake town, story by story, from 911 calls about barking dogs to the thrills and spills of the Great Crate Race. But there is one story this self-proclaimed "Voice of the Foothills" never told: the one about its own demise. The 50-cent newspaper, known to locals affectionately as "The Squeak," ceased publishing a few weeks ago without word or warning. Its green, old-fashioned news racks are empty. Its offices bolted.
