From The Santa Fe New Mexican:

May 13, 1919: A recent arrival from Mexico in Santa Fe gave an account of the latest activities of Pancho Villa, which threw rather a favorable light than otherwise on the recent stunts of this amazing Mexican bandit. This man, a mining operator, gave Villa credit for keeping his word as to the protection of certain properties and one gathered from big reports of statements by the redoubtable Francisco that he still regards himself increasingly in the light of a statesman whose intentions toward his country are benevolent rather than otherwise.

May 13, 1969: Harry Wugalter, chief of public school finance for the state, Saturday will review the Santa Fe Public School budget for 1969-70.

The review will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday in the speech at Mid-High. Interested person are urged to attend.

May 13, 1994: Rosalie Prada, the Santa Fe woman who left her newborn baby in a trash bin outside of her apartment in March, pleaded guilty Thursday to child abuse and tampering with evidence.

In a plea bargain with Prada, prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of attempted murder in exchange for the guilty plea. Prada could be sentenced to a maximum of three years in prison.
