From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

Sept. 3, 1918: 15 Santa Fe Boys Register August 24 With Local Board.

Sept. 3, 1968: The Santa Fe Fiesta left more than a memory for city sanitation department workers.

During the four-day celebration, sanitation trucks picked up 22 loads of garbage around the Plaza — a total of 90,200 pounds.

In addition, said Uvaldo Olivas, sanitary inspector, nine men worked streets each night from 2 to 8 a.m., and with the help of sweepers and two dump trucks picked up four loads of refuse each night.

And in what would have to be a completely different category, Fiesta officials said 103 children were reported lost during Fiesta.

Sept. 3, 1993: LOS ALAMOS — Los Alamos National Laboratory has temporarily suspended operations at Technical Area 55, the lab’s top secret plutonium research facility where four workers were contaminated with plutonium earlier this week.

The suspension is scheduled to last until Sept. 10 to give lab managers and workers time to review safety policies and procedures, lab spokesman Jim Danneskiold said Thursday.
