Travelling the years...


The Waurika News-Democrat, Waurika, Ok., where I earned my real journalism degrees, year after year for 12 years, once a week and in-between. The sign replicated the paper's flag (nameplate), which I designed...featuring a longhorn for the Chisholm Trail, and new Waurika Lake, which wouldn't have been built if it hadn't been for the newspaper and the efforts of my late partner, Donald J. Morrison.




Moses, New Mexico, north of Clayton, near the Cimarron crossing of the Old Santa Fe Trail, and just a couple of miles west of the Oklahoma panhandle state line.
