Looking forward, we can promise that the newspaper and its affiliates will continue to elucidate and to entertain, to enlighten and to educate. The opinion pages will continue to extol conservative values. This will remain the largest, best-equipped information provider in Oklahoma. And we will continue to support community causes and help this state grow and prosper.
Gaylord is a household name in Oklahoma. It has been for more than a century. Anschutz will be unfamiliar to most readers. This will soon change and the newspaper will evolve. But it will not reverse the course that E.K. Gaylord set for it so many years ago.
Welcome to Oklahoma, Mr. Anschutz. Into your capable hands we place a company born before statehood and a newspaper that's helped steer the good ship Oklahoma since 1903.
