From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
November 21, 1912: There will be good fishing next summer on the Pecos. Deputy Game Warden Page B. Otero has seen to it. Never before in the history of the game warden’s office perhaps has so much care and solicitude been shown fish fry. Since Nov. 5, 233,000 trout were placed at the head of the Pecos. Mr. Otero took up 203,000 of these fry, placing six cans at Harrison’s, seven cans at Ponchuella, three cans at Winsor and 30 cans at Holy Ghost. They were so placed that they can be taken care of this winter and then turned out into the main stream next spring. This is considered a better way than dumping them into the main stream now, leaving them at the mercy of the larger trout, for they now are protected. He was assisted by Edward Ervien, the deputy game warden on the Pecos; John Harrison, Llewellen Lloyd and Miss Ruth Winsor.
November 21, 1962: Taos — Livestock can be moved from Taos County, which has been placed under strict quarantine, but only if they have been vaccinated against anthrax. All cattle, sheep, horses, goats and swine are covered by the quarantine. Newly vaccinated animals can be removed two weeks after vaccination.
November 21, 1987: Attorney General Hal Stratton Friday filed a lawsuit against the state Public Employee Retirement Board over its policy of allowing unused vacation pay to be used in retirement pay calculations. He said state law specifies that only an employee’s salary can be used to calculate retirement pay.
Economically depressed Mora County could get a boost from a new $6 million to $8 million state fish hatchery, said Harold Olson, director of the state Game and Fish Department. Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe, said he supported the proposed hatchery because ‘this is not a temporary fix for the economy there.’ From six to 10 permanent jobs would be needed to operate the hatchery at an annual budget of from $500,000 to $750,000.
