probably about 1944
Earl Grau and Richard Hindley owned the newspaper at this time (I *think*)
Again – I *think* the Tucumcari Daily News was established in 1933.
If you can identify any of these basketball players, give a holler!
Even if I once knew –
I no longer know.
As a young child until my teen years, we lived in Tucumcari, New Mexico. Every now and then I go back for the Tucumcari Reunion (and love visiting old friends and making new friends). Haven’t been back for a reunion in awhile; it is probably time!
This area of New Mexico is mostly flat (certainly doesn’t have the mountain range that we enjoyed when we lived in Denver).
However, Tucumcari has a mountain. Yep folks – that’s Tucumcari mountain in the background – standing sentinel while Leroy Webb (The Last Cowboy) feeds his horses and I figure that Leroy and his friend plan to have a cup of coffee later and trade horse stories.
