  • Friday, Feb. 4, 1966 — A big black cat, shipped from Fort Lee, N.J., to make its home here with the family it owns, Mr. and Mrs. William J. Bowman and children, who have moved here to make their home, arrived in Las Vegas with a stowaway, a tiny white mouse, in its shipping crate. The black cat, shipped air freight to Albuquerque in a wooden crate with air holes in it, was transferred to a truck in the Duke City and then shipped on to Las Vegas. It is not known when or where the stowaway mouse joined the black cat.

  • Wednesday, Feb. 2, 1966 — The community of Mora has undertaken a drive to establish a public library. At a meeting of the Mora Library Committee last week it was decided to kick off a book and donation campaign immediately in order to establish the much needed facility as soon as possible. The first contributor in Mora to the library fund was the Joe Martinez family. They donated 40 books on merchandising dating back to the 1800s.
