Santa Fe New Mexican


From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 21, 1923: Under the caption, “A Woman as Game Warden,” the “Western Story Magazine,” published in New York City, in its issue of November 17 — it is published weekly — pays a tribute to Mrs. Grace B. Melaven, game warden of New Mexico. Nov. 21, 1973: A $950,000 bond issue, for streets, storm sewers, a fire-police substation and parks, was recommended Tuesday night by the City Council’s public works and finance committees. If the council approves the committees’ recommendation, the bond issue will be on the March 5 city election ballot. Approval of the bond issue would maintain the city’s share of the total property tax rate at about what it is now, city officials said. Nov. 21, 1998: Española shoppers won’t have to wait much longer to start shopping at their new “super” Wal-Mart after a state Court of Appeals decision Friday not to halt construction of the store at the request of two local merchants. The 152,000-square-foot store is expected to open Jan. 27. It will employ 300 full- and parttime workers and pay the city of Española between $900,000 and $1 million a year in gross receipts taxes on projected annual sales of more than $60 million. In the ruling, Chief Judge Harris Hartz said he and Judges Richard Bosson and Michael Bustamante had made a unanimous decision not to issue a temporary injunction halting work on the store, as requested by Pete Chiello and Kelly Armstrong.
