Nov. 14, 1918: Felix Lobato, Alleged Evader Of Draft, Makes Early Morning Escape From Santa Fe County Jail

With Aid of German-Speaking Prisoner, Gets New Jailer to Let Him go After Coal and Then Bolts; Believed to be Headed for Old Home in Espanola; Officers Start Man Hunt Through Rio Arriba County.

Nov. 14, 1968: State Engineer Steve Reynolds was at work this morning — but missing several teeth.

He also suffered cuts and bruises in a one-car accident Wednesday near Bernalillo.

Reynolds, who was driving a state car on the interstate Albuquerque-Santa Fe highway, said he lost control of the vehicle, which hit the median and a drainage outlet. He said he believed a flat tire may have triggered the accident.

Nov. 14, 1993: Surveys of American gasoline prices show these sad truths for anyone who drives a car or truck in Northern New Mexico.

If you live in the West, you pay more for gasoline than other Americans. If you live in New Mexico, you pay more for gasoline that most other Westerners. And if you live in Santa Fe or Taos, you pay more for gasoline than almost anyone else in New Mexico.

Add it all up, and it produces those looming “$1.339” signs along Cerrillos Road, advertising the going rate for self-pumped, regular unleaded gas at most Santa Fe service stations last week.
