A Greenlee County judge granted an extension for the discussion about water rights of the Little Colorado River.

The Navajo and Hopi Tribes, cities of Winslow and Flagstaff, the federal Departments of Justice and Interior as well as several corporations seemed to be coming to an agreement over who owned what prompting the judge to delay his ruling.

A proposed shooting range near the Winslow Heights neighborhood was held up after public hearings from concerned citizens. The Winslow Police/Court Complex was filled to capacity as the Navajo County Board of Supervisors heard the pros and cons of the firing range.

Gervase Hale, Sr. was elected mayor and three council members retained their seats in 1960. They were the first council members to be elected for four-year terms. The city charter previously limited the council to two-year terms.

Two members elected in 1958 had their terms extended two years to comply with the new rules.

70 years ago

Bad weather prevented travel to Winslow and washed away an attempt to form a Northern Arizona baseball league. Representatives planned to meet in town on March 15, 1935 to discuss creating a professional league but several could not make the trip due to winter storms.

However, a meeting to form a city softball league fared much better as four teams were created that night and four more joined within the following week.
