THE PAST 100 YEARS

Santa Fe New Mexican - - LOCAL& REGION -

From the Santa Fe New Mex­i­can:

Oct. 13, 1968: About 36 per cent of the road im­prove­ment projects in the Santa Fe Paving Dis­trict have been com­pleted and con­struc­tion on other projects in the dis­trict is right on sched­ule, ac­cord­ing to City En­gi­neer Or­monde Earpe.

The ini­tial paving dis­trict con­sisted of 16 projects and was later re­duced to half that num­ber. The to­tal cost of the projects in the dis­trict is $239,911.

The New Mex­ico State High­way De­part­ment is par­tic­i­pat­ing in one third of the cost or about $71,000.

Oct. 13, 1993: There are “per­va­sive prob­lems” with med­i­cal care at the Pen­i­ten­tiary of New Mex­ico, and some of those prob­lems were re­flected in the prison deaths of three in­mates last year, a fed­eral court mon­i­tor says in a new re­port.

The re­port also says the per­for­mance of Cor­rec­tional Med­i­cal Sys­tems, the pri­vate firm hired to pro­vide med­i­cal ser­vices for men’s prisons in New Mex­ico, has been “less than sat­is­fac­tory” and “has fallen short of rea­son­able ex­pec­ta­tions ac­cord­ing to sev­eral crit­i­cal mea­sures.”
