From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

Jan. 30, 1919: WANTED — Competent cook, woman preferred. J.W. Harrison. Pecos, N.M.

Jan. 30, 1969: New Mexico magazine will again appear with advertising in its pages, Department of Development director James O. Roberson told Legislative Appropriations Committee members Wednesday. He expects that the magazine can support itself in another 18 months.

House Appropriations and Finance Committee Chairman John J. Mershon, D-Otero, criticized Roberson for having said a year ago that by this time the state’s magazine would be in the black, then setting the date back another year and a half.

Jan. 30, 1994: Peso Chavez is a quiet man.

The Santa Fe city councilor rarely offers his opinion on issues and rarely initiates council action.

When community anger erupted over the police shooting of Francisco “Pancho” Ortega, Chavez remained mostly silent, despite his role as chairman of the city’s Public Safety Committee.

… Chavez, who is now running for mayor, says he’s just cautious — a trait learned from his work as a private investigator and a law student.
