THE PAST 100 YEARS

Santa Fe New Mexican - - ANOTHER VIEW -

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.
