From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

April 3, 1919: If at first you don’t succeed, try try again is the motto on which the Santa Fe bank is proceeding in reference to window glass.

Their remarkable run of hard luck the past few months during which two or three big plate windows have been smashed has not deterred them a bit and this morning a fine new big window was installed, ready and waiting now for some body or some thing to keep up precedent and break it.

April 3, 1969: With almost a month to go before filing date, Santa Feans already are speculating as to who will jump into the race to become Constitutional Convention delegates from Santa Fe County.

Santa Fe will go to the polls in a special election June 17 to select three delegates for the convention, scheduled to open Aug. 5.

April 3, 1994: As a child in the Midwest, Glenda Hogan was baptized a Methodist. Her grandparents were regular churchgoers. Her parents were not.

“No one said yea or nay about church. It was there if I wanted to go, but I considered myself someone who was unchurched,” said Hogan, who until recently would have labeled herself an agnostic.

This Easter is different. After seven years of searching Santa Fe for a church home, Hogan is marking this most important Christian holidays as a member of First Christian Church.

Her new church, which she joined in January, “allows us to be people,” Hogan said. “It made me feel I could really grow in a place like this.”
