Sandhills Sentinel, Inc is owned by BJ Goodridge and Lori McFarland of Aberdeen. We wanted to create an online newspaper for the community. Somewhere that we could tell the stories of the people who live and work in the area. To tell the stories of you, your neighbors, and others in our community is our goal.
We will have breaking news stories along the way, such as accidents and fires, but our focus is always on the people in the community.
Most importantly, it is offered free to you. You will not have to “sign-in” and you will not have to pay to read anything. We rely on fees generated from advertisers.
You will see that we feature our obituaries on our front page because we believe in honoring those who have passed. It is a final chance to tell their story. Our Lifestyle Page features stories about local people and their accomplishments.
We created a Military Page with respect, honor, and gratitude for those who serve and served and their families. Our Government Page keeps you updated on our local and state government. We have a soft spot in our hearts for animals, so we feature pets available for adoption on our Pets Page.
The Today in History Page will please our history buff readers. Our Education Page will feature everything you need to know about Moore County Schools and the North Carolina education system.
The Health & Wellness Page will have articles on FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital and area clinics as well as general articles related to your health. If you are looking for something to do in Moore County, you will find that on our Events Page.
Finally, we offer our readers our News Around the State Page that gives you a round up of the daily news around North Carolina. There is a little something for everyone! We will continue to add pages and features as we grow.
We hope that you will continue to read the Sentinel, and share it with your friends. Hopefully, among the stories, you will find something that makes you smile or touches your heart along the way.
Our sincere thanks go out to each and everyone of you that read our paper and to our advertisers for helping us be your source for news in the Sandhills.
