March 22,1918: The Madrid public school is setting a pace for the other schools of Santa Fe County, all of which are making an effort to do effective war work. A Junior Red Cross League has been organized at Madrid, according to the report of Miss [G.} the principal, to the county superintendent, Mrs. Otero-Warren.

March 22, 1968: “I’m very disappointed that he’s not running,” said Gov. David F. Cargo today at Nelson Rockefeller’s decision not to seek the Republican presidential nomination.

“I think it would have been very helpful for the Republican party to have a contest,” he added. “It’s not very meaningful for Richard Nixon to defeat Harold Stassen in four straight contests.”

Stassen, one-time boy wonder of the GOP, is an inevitable — and inevitably unsuccessful — candidate for the presidency.

Appointment of Jack Sitton, secretary-manager of the New Mexico Press Association and former editor of the Carlsbad Current-Argus as editor of The New Mexican, was announced here, this morning by Robert McKinney, publisher.

Sitton returned to Santa Fe, his former home, to assume his duties today.

March 22, 1993: Two former Santa Fe women were kissed, fondled and caressed by Archbishop Robert Sanchez during relationships that began when they were 18 and lasted several years, the women told a 60 Minutes interviewer.

One of the women compared the relationship to incest. … The program, reported by Mike Wallace, tied the archbishop’s own sexual activity to his failure to take action against priests in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe who were sexually abusing children in their parishes. Victims interviewed on the show said the archbishop knew about the sexual abuses of other priests in the archdiocese but took no action to stop it or warn church members about the activities.
