May 28, 1919: Torrance County Boy Gassed In Argonne Forest; Two Years In Country’s Service

War Is What Sherman Said Any Way You Look At It, Says Charlie Meyer, Who Has Splendid Record In All The Greatest Battles.

Charlie, Meyer, from Torrance county, is visiting his brother, Assistant Attorney General Nicholas D. Meyer. He served with the 28th (Iron) division of Pennsylvania, known as the Keystone division, 63rd artillery. He arrived from overseas May 7 and reached home on the 24th.

May 28, 1969: The State Personnel Board wrestled today with a dilemma not of its own making, but one it could be blamed for.

The question: How do you raise the salaries of underpaid state employees when the legislature has authorized no increase in appropriations and a decrease for many agencies? Especially when the legislature itself ordered the salary increases?

May 28, 1994: Don’t bank on doing too much more business at the Bank of Santa Fe’s Capitol branch.

After 13 robberies in 36 years, the bank is closing the tiny branch at 422 Old Santa Fe Trail behind the Bull Ring on Sept. 2.

“It’s not an easy decision to make,” said Madeline Vogt, Bank of Santa Fe vice president and security officer. “We wouldn’t be closing this if it weren’t for this problem.” We would have to make it a complete fortress to operate as a normal branch.”
