April 8, 1946: R.H. (Rich) Grissom, state school budget auditor since 1931, announced today he would file for the Democratic nomination for governor.
April 8, 1971: The state’s movie promotion effort is in deep money trouble again and the Finance Department applied a spending crackdown for the balance of the fiscal year ending June 30.
The movie promotion travel budget is $15,125 for the entire fiscal year. But $18,748 was disbursed in the 9-month July-March span alone, a thumping overexpenditure of $3,623.
April 8, 1996: Spring runoff from Northern New Mexico’s mountains is likely to be more of a trickle than a torrent this year, which would be bad news for irrigators and river rafters.
A generally dry weather pattern is also responsible for increased fire dangers this spring and, if prolonged, could add fervor to water conservation campaigns in Santa Fe this summer.
