May 22, 1970: Las Vegas, N.M. — Chicago Seven defense attorney William Kunstler suggested Thursday night that New Mexico Highlands University students “take a building peacefully” to protest the choice of an Anglo as the university’s new president.

May 22, 1995: Think the service industry doesn’t pay well? Therese Prada, the rooms director at the Inn at Loretto, recently received a generous tip that could put her children through college: a $70,000 inheritance.
Prada, 36, said she was shocked when an attorney called last month to tell her that she was named as the sole beneficiary of Charlie Welch’s estate. …
Welch, a resident of Columbus, Ohio, visited Santa Fe about twice a year and was so taken with Prada’s customer service that he always stayed at the hotel where she worked.
