From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
Dec. 16, 1962: Action on a proposal to use the old post office building in Roswell as a building for a branch college of Eastern New Mexico University there has been deferred by the state Board of Educational Finance. The building has been declared surplus property by the federal government and ownership turned over to the Roswell School Board. The school board and ENMU jointly maintain the branch college facilities in Roswell. The BEF plans a complete discussion of branch college operations in New Mexico and the proposal will be reviewed at that time.
Dec. 16, 1987: Santa Claus is alive and well and waiting for a telephone call at Santa Fe’s Casa Real nursing home. For the third consecutive year, residents of the home are sponsoring the Ho! Ho! Hot Line, a free phone-in service that connects children to Santa Claus, who is played by senior volunteers.
Eight months after the state agreed to buy the old city library, attorneys for the city and state still are negotiating the sale. Gov. Garrey Carruthers in April signed legislation that authorized purchase of the Washington Avenue building by the state for expansion of the adjacent state museum complex, the Palace of the Governors.
