This index was compiled by Brett Carnell from microfilm of the Corona Maverick held at the University of New Mexico. The microfilm was made from paper copies of the newspaper held at the Lincoln County courthouse in Carrizozo. Only local stories and advertisements were indexed. Syndicated material printed in the newspaper, but not produced locally, was not indexed. For geographic locations within the United States, the entry is first under the name of the state, then by town or city. You may view Brett's web page here. There are a number of issues missing. The issues that are included for 1922 are January 13 through 27, April 28 through May 19, August 11 through November 17, December 8 and December 29. The issues that are included for 1923 include January 5 through March 30, April 13 through June 15, July 20 through July 27, and August 17.
The microfilm is held at the University of New Mexico, New Mexico State University, the Museum of New Mexico, and at the Lincoln County Courthouse.

Alcohol
- (2/23/23) Editorial: The Gun Toter - He's a menace to any community and almost invariably a coward. There is a law against carrying a six shooter in New Mexico, but in this particular section of the state no attention is paid to it. Quite a few of our "brave" young Americans in this locality seem to be of the opinion that they are real men when they attend local dances with a six shooter in one hip pocket and a bottle of "nubbin juice" in the other. About the best and quickest way of changing their opinions would be the prompt application of as heavy a fine as the law allows on each and every gun toter brought before the courts and our city officials should be charged to round up the offenders, regardless of rank or station.
