50 years ago, 1964: The New Mexico congressional delegation was advised by the Bureau of Indian Affairs that a $13,175 program was to be conducted at Groves Archery Corp. in Albuquerque. Thirteen Indians would be taught how to make bows and arrows in an on-the-job training program.

25 years ago, 1989: Actors Thomas Brown and Winona Ryder were seen leaving Clyde High School during a rehearsal for the movie "Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael," which was being filmed in part on location in Clyde. Ryder starred as Dinky Brossard.

10 years ago, 2004: A part-time Show Low, Ariz., firefighter looking for work was charged with using matches to set dry grass aflame, starting a blaze that turned into the worst wildfire in Arizona history.

The movie filmed in Clyde is a great movie and a lot of local people did not even know about the movie being partly filmed in Clyde back then. That was in the early days of Winona Ryder's career before she became real famous. Its still a great movie and even shows a scene by the water in Castalia where people use to be able to stop and feed the ducks.

There was a scene by the Mills creek bridge on W. Monroe St. by the old Toft's. It was where her character would 'hideout', sort of speak.
