When I make a change to the /etc/crontab file, what service do I need to reload/restart in order for the changes to take effect?

service crond restart

doesn't work. "crond: unrecognized service"

Looks like you don't have crond (vixie-cron) installed. If you type which crond and not get /usr/sbin/crond, then you need to run yum install vixie-cron.
