Hey folks. We are going to try and get these next two journals out as quickly as possible but do need some Old West stories. So if any of you cowpokes out there has one you would like to share, let us know...R. D. and Naomi....
Mr. R. D. "Ron" Morgan, Editor of Oklahombres
Welcome Aboard! First, a little HISTORY!
Dee Cordry, who was the First Editor of the Oklahombres Journal, began his stewardship in the Summer of 1989 and ended in the Summer of 2001, and was responsible for Fifty-One (51) Journals for a total of 931 pages - - with an average of 18.2 pages per issue.
Next, Diron Ahlquist assumed the editorial reins from Dee and continued to produce Twenty-three (23) wonderful Journals from the Fall of 2001 thru the Spring of 2007, consisting of 448 pages - - with an average of 19.5 pages per issue.
Later, Karen Lippe accepted the role of Editor in the Summer of 2007 and carried on this exalted tradition until the Winter of 2010, producing Eleven (11) Journals, totalling 208 pages for an average of 18.9 pages per Journal.
Mrs. Lippe's final issue, which was mailed-out in August of 2010, was the "Winter 2010" issue (Vol. 21 No. 2).
Not to put any pressure on anyone ("RON"); but, the next Three (3) installments should be:
Spring 2010 (Vol. 21 No. 3);
Summer 2010 (Vol. 21 No. 4); and
Fall 2010 (Vol. 22 No. 1).
(Note: I hope that you'll be operating under the same "Julian Calendar" that Julius Caeser instituted for us way back in 46 B.C.)
As an accomplished author of 4 or 5 excellent books on Oklahoma Gangsters, you shouldn't have any problems filling several Journals with exciting stories of yesteryear.
Good Luck with the Journal(s)!!!
Thanks for the excellent history lesson..The Spring issue of Oklahombres Journal is complete and on it's way (24 pages). We are working on the Summer issue as we speak but still need stories (Hope to have it done in early Nov.)..Be well..Your humble editor..Ron
Thanks, I need to order the Journal, and I just thought of something simple I can do, and submit.
There might be an interest in it, so I'll see if I can get it (article) done, and submitted.
Folks..We are looking for stories concerning the Rogers County area for a special issue of Oklahombres Journal to corrispond with the April 2011 Claremore get-together.Stories must be turned into yours truly by the last week of Feb. 2011...Thanks.. Ron
I just received the latest issue of the Oklahombres Journal, yesterday; and, it is GREAT...fantastic...superb! The stories are ALL very interesting and exciting. The photographic images, and other exhibits, used in this issue are excellent, displayed perfectly.
"THANKS!" and "Congratulations!" for this great issue. It couldn't have come at a better time . . . a wonderful Christmas treat for everyone.
Thanks very much....the next issue is nearing completion....R. D. and Naomi
Ron....is there a theme for the next Journal?
The upcoming journal is a mixed bag, as is our tradition..some Old West, some Gangster era..Great stories from James Knight,Bob Ernst, Larry Yadon, Mike Koch and others. Also included is a book review, a collection of historical photos and many other intresting tidbits along with tombstone corner..The following journal will boast some very nice pieces by Bob Winter, Jeffery King, Mike Koch and yours truly, as well as others...
Another great issue of the Oklahombres Journal, Vol XXII No 1, was mailed Saturday so I imagine most of you in Oklahoma will receive it today.
If you are not a member and want to join us it is so easy. Send a check for $25 (in the US or $35 if you live outside of the US) made payable to "OKlahombrs, Inc" to

CONGRATULATIONS!!! to R.D. and Naomi Morgan for another FANTASTIC Journal!
I received Volume XXII No. 2 (Winter 2011) in yesterday's (Tuesday's) mail, and it is an EXCELLENT issue . . . possibly, one of the best ever.
The cover photo of Rogers County Officer J. Hurt Flippen is so sharp and clear that it practically jumps-off-the-page at the reader. All of the stories are extremely interesting and exciting. All of the photos and graphics and maps are displayed beautifully . . . the entire Journal is GREAT! Perfection!
Thank You very much.
Thank you and thanks to Dennis and Karen for doing their part.....
Folks we have had exactly one very short story sent in for this upcoming journal..Without stories there can be no journal..R. D.
