THE PAST 100 YEARS
From the Santa Fe New Mexican:
Dec. 8, 1968: The Board of Visitors and Governors of St. John’s College Saturday discussed the need for expanding facilities at the Santa Fe campus in view of expected enrollment increases.
Dec. 8, 1998: Santa Fe Municipal Judge Tom Fiorina is known for responding to criticism in unusual ways.
For instance, back in the 1980s when criticized some the city judge councilors for dismissing too many parking tickets, Fiorina responded by dismissing thousands of parking citations in exchange for turkeys and other groceries to be given to poor families. The Thanksgiving amnesty program became an annual event and has since brought nationa attention to the Santa Fe city court.
