This website is respectfully dedicated, as a slight mark of the kind and friendly feelings with which they are regarded by.


yielding with unfeigned reluctance to the repeated and earnest persuasions of friends, I the editor of the Oxnard Journal decided to go of and create my own newspaper and news document for my current home of record, Oxnard, California.

In so doing, I have received attention from far and wide, and mostly near.  My website is not designed to  to overrate my capabilities, I consented to report the news and events solely on my own and for my own need to have a creative outlet and a voice.  Sort of blogging before there was blogging. -- but in the form of a news journal.

Here it is 2004 and the Oxnard Journal is still out there.  THE ONLY OXNARD NEWS That Does Not Need YOU TO REGISTER to read the stories ----

But, according to Job, the desire of those who count me as an enemy, by writing and registering cannot a provide a scientific reason—

I have written almost entirely from memory, the stories of events seen and observed in the past 8 years.  Soon I will find a way to get some of the old Oxnard Journal pages online --- my desire to complete this electronic undertaking as speedily as possible, and to keep things current is always my goal --- I need you, as a reader to send me news and views that I might be enabled to meet other pressing engagements.

This being my primary role at authorship, I earnestly crave the charitable forbearance of critics, promising most faithfully and cheerfully, not to repeat the infliction upon their more learned sensibilities


Thank you for reading the Oxnard Journal.
