Times to change, moves inside Phoenix

— To our readers,

The Fort Gibson Times has served our loyal readers for 33 years. We have been there during the good and bad times, mirroring the community we love.

But, as times change, so will the Times.

Today's issue is the last standalone, print edition of the Fort Gibson Times. Beginning Tuesday, May 7, the Times will publish as a weekly, two-page insert within the Muskogee Phoenix.

In addition, the Phoenix will provide daily coverage of news that affects Fort Gibson in print and online at

Many of the features you have come to expect each week in the Times will continue within the Phoenix on Tuesdays.

The weekly Fort Gibson pages within the Phoenix will continue to have the look and feel of the Times. They will be topped with the banner you have long trusted.

Wendy Burton will remain the editor. She will continue to ensure you receive the information that only a hometown media outlet can provide.

Though the venue changes, the flow of information does not. The Phoenix will continue its mission to serve the readers of Fort Gibson in print and online.

Thank you for your loyalty. We strive to earn it every day.
