May 9, 1991 editorial on Narconon Newkirk Journal editorial on Narconon: "While we've been content, lately, to let the system work, Goofyology has been milking the media for publicity every chance it gets. This week, they really got their wish... compliments of Time Magazine. For those of you who have been unable to locate a copy of the May 6th Time Magazine anywhere in the county, we are reprinting the entire cover story in today's Herald Journal. Including a page from the International Edition that didn't appear in the domestic issue. The Time story, as did the Los Angeles Times series last summer, further confirms everything we have uncovered about the menace of the Rondroids. Empty news stands all over the county attest to the high interest this story has generated... or the high interest someone has in preventing you from reading it!" Narconon

May 18, 1989 letter from Narconon president John Duff In a letter printed on the front page of the weekly Newkirk Herald Journal, Narconon president John Duff wrote: "There will be those that will not want Narconon to succeed at Chilocco because they are for drugs and are on the other side in the battle against drugs," prompting an angry response from community leaders, including Jones, the Baptist minister Mark Jones, who responded the following week, writing he "resented the implication, or more accurately the accusation, that was made by Narconon's Mr. Duff.

April 27, 1989 article on Narconon Newkirk Herald Journal exposes the links between Narconon and Scientology, expressing disapproval in no uncertain terms. Calling Narconon "mental messiahs with forked tongues", it comments: "Their own propaganda says their treatments 'cannot be construed as a recommendation of medical treatment or medication and it is undertaken or delivered by anyone on his own responsibility.' In other words, if it don't work, tough cookies." It concludes that the Oklahoma Health Planning Commission "must have had its head plugged into an E-meter not to discover the true nature of this malignity." Narconon
