From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

Dec. 21, 1918: Charles Springer, president of the State Council of Defense, has returned from Cimarron.

H.W. Kelly, well known merchant of Las Vegas, is at the De Vargas.

W.G. Heberling, mining man of Valley Ranch, is a business visitor in the City.

The Rev. R.E. Farley of Albuquerque, head of the Anti-Saloon League in New Mexico and recently placed in charge of the anti-saloon and anti-liquor forces to turn Latin-America dry, arrived in the city last night and registered at the De Vargas.

Dec. 21, 1993: Democrat Bruce King might be the least pretentious governor we’ve had.

He’s probably pumped more hands and slapped more backs than any 10 other New Mexico politicians combined.

He’s liked by many who have never even voted for him.

… Much of the public’s good will, though, appears to be in jeopardy. The reason: King’s controversial and increasingly publicized land swap with the federal Bureau of Land Management.
