From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

May 5, 1919: Arthur A. Hesch, who has been in the diplomatic service and secretary to the American ambassador at Madrid, Spain, for the last past year, arrived Saturday evening, having resigned from the service. Mr. Hesch travelled extensively in Europe, including France, Portugal and Andorra, and sailed from Gibraltar. He will remain in Santa Fe for several months after which he will resume his legal studies.

May 5, 1969: Santa Fe Today

Police checked on complaints of prowlers operating along Garfield, Guadalupe, Alameda and Camino Alire.


Officers received a complaint of someone burning trash along Siringo.

Carlos Carrillo, 712 W. San Francisco, complained of a smashed window.

Shoplifters were reported operating at Gibson’s Discount Store.

A window was smashed at El Seville Apartments.

May 5, 1994: The Santa Fe Public Schools Board of Education ended a month of mostly semantic debate this week and approved its initiative to revamp district high schools.

The initiative, in the form of a board resolution, calls for officials at both district high schools to devise reforms they feel are needed and implement them by the 1995-96 academic year.

Since it was first introduced by the board in early April, the resolution split — almost evenly — the district’s two high schools over reform issues.

During discussions of the proposal, Capital High School officials said they were eager to begin exploring reform options. Members of the Santa Fe High community, however, were strongly opposed to portions of the resolution, especially the wording of various items.
