HISTORY

East Valley Times was first established in Oct. 2000 by Palo Cedro resident Kathy Hansen as a twice a month community newspaper publication serving the eastern Shasta County areas — Palo Cedro, Bella Vista, Shingletown, Manton, Round Mountain, Oak Run, Whitmore, and Jones Valley.

In April 2004, Sharyn Cornelius and Judy La Russa purchase the paper from Hansen. Cornelius had worked for the paper from its beginning and La Russa joined the crew three months later.

In Nov. 2009, La Russa expanded the paper to an online version—publishing each page of the paper in a PDF form to possibly reach other constituents and giving the capability to publish breaking news.

In 2016, Sharyn retired, and Judy discontinued the paper publication and continued the growing online version. La Russa then establishes a larger readership, keeping with community news, but also current and hard news expanding to the entire Shasta County.
