Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

From The Santa Fe New Mex­i­can:

Sept. 17, 1917: The New Mex­i­can is not fa­mil­iar with the de­tails of the con­tro­versy over the pro­posed city char­ter in Al­bu­querque. It is, how­ever, fa­mil­iar enough with the end­less hair-pulling in the Al­bu­querque city gov­ern­ment to hazard the state­ment that any other kind of an ad­min­is­tra­tion of mu­nic­i­pal af­fairs would be prefer­able to that the city has en­joyed in the past.

Sept. 17, 1967: Two Santa Fe County of­fi­cials pointed out this past week that the county has been op­er­at­ing for years on a shoe­string bud­get — and a short shoe­string, at that, which needs to be length­ened.

County Com­mis­sioner Car­los Martinez and County Man­ager Don San­doval dis­cussed some fi­nan­cial facts in the light of what the com­ple­tion of reap­praisal will mean in the way of ad­di­tional op­er­at­ing money.

And they also re­peated their con­tention that an­other at­tempt at a ref­er­en­dum un­der terms of the Indi­gent Hospi­tal care Act is the only fea­si­ble route to­ward solv­ing some of the fi­nan­cial ills of St. Vin­cent Hospi­tal.

Sept. 17, 1992: WASH­ING­TON — Stu­dents from Rio Ar­riba, Santa Fe and Taos coun­ties have been ranked about av­er­age in New Mex­ico — in quit­ting high school be­fore grad­u­a­tion.

The dropout rate in New Mex­ico high schools av­er­ages 10.8 per­cent, ac­cord­ing to a re­port re­leased Wed­nes­day by the Na­tional Cen­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion Statis­tics. That puts New Mex­ico schools be­low the na­tional dropout rate of 12.5 per­cent.
