80 Years Ago Taken from the pages of the Dolores Star, Friday, Nov. 11, 1932 Fred Bradshaw, Editor

A woman and young girl are recovering from injuries sustained in two automobile accidents of a few days ago. Mrs. Tim Jones of Dolores and Peggy, 10-year-old daughter of Sheriff Dunlap, were the victims. Mrs. Jones left Dolores late in the afternoon, hoping to reach Cortez before the county offices closed. When nearing Cortez her car overturned, rolling upside down. She suffered bruises and a severe laceration of one foot. She was rescued from the overturned car by passersby, among whom were the members of the Cortez high school football team, who had played the Dolores team during the afternoon.
