Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

From The Santa Fe New Mex­i­can: Nov. 15, 1917: Whether Gov­er­nor Lind­sey, Judge Roberts, State En­gi­neer French and Nathan Salmon had been able to kill any bear in Rio Ar­riba county, where they had been hunt­ing for three days, could not be as­cer­tained to­day. Nei­ther Mrs. Lind­sey nor any one at the cap­i­tal had heard from the party ei­ther by tele­phone or mail. The hunters, how­ever, are prob­a­bly many miles from a post of­fice and are too busy seek­ing Bruin and wild turkey to com­mu­ni­cate with friends in the cap­i­tal.

Nov. 15, 1967: The New Mex­i­can will re­turn to af­ter­noon pub­li­ca­tion be­gin­ning the day af­ter to­mor­row, Fri­day, Nov. 17. This de­ci­sion comes in re­sponse to a poll of our read­ers who, in bal­lots mailed to the news­pa­per, have ex­pressed them­selves over­whelm­ingly.

Al­though bal­lots are still com­ing in, re­turns from through­out our cir­cu­la­tion area show the vote run­ning eight to one in fa­vor of an af­ter­noon pa­per.

Nov. 15, 1992: Os­car Martinez crashed his Ply­mouth Vo­lare into Peter Van Ton­geren’s Ford Bronco one night last month on Agua Fria Street. Martinez fled the scene, leav­ing Van Ton­geren with bro­ken legs.

Po­lice caught Martinez and found he did not have in­surance or even a driver’s li­cense.

Martinez could have been sen­tenced to jail for leav­ing the scene of an ac­ci­dent and the gal­axy of other traf­fic tick­ets that re­sulted from the Oct. 15 ac­ci­dent. How­ever, Van Ton­geren and his fam­ily did not ob­ject when Mu­nic­i­pal Judge Tom Fio­r­ina did not send Martinez to jail.
