The People's Law: Attorney Acevedo's newspaper column
The Sanford Herald was first published in 1908 and is still in operation. But, between 1998 and 2004, the Sanford Herald
was known as the Seminole Herald. For a couple of years during that time, attorney Acevedo wrote a weekly legal column
in the Herald called the People's Law as a service to the community.

According to the website of Historic American Newspapers, the first newspaper in Sanford was the South
Florida Journal which ran from 1874 to 1883 and was published by F. Robertson. The South Florida Journal
was followed by the Sanford Journal which ran from 1883 to 1893 and was published by J.J. Harris.
Near the tail end of the Sanford Journal's run, the Gate City Chronicle began publication. It ran from 1892 to
1901 and was published by T.J. Appleyard. Then, in 1901, the Sanford Chronicle took over where the Gate
City Chronicle left off. The Sanford Chronicle which was published by W.D. Bell ran from 1901 to 1908.
Then came the Sanford Herald which was first published in 1908 by R.J. Holly. Over they years, the Herald was
run by different publishers with different visions. On March 3, 1998, the Sanford Herald changed its name to the
Seminole Herald in order to reach a county wide audience. However, on February 1, 2004, the Seminole Herald
changed its name back to the Sanford Herald. To this day, the paper has kept the Sanford Herald name.
