Archbishop: Mortgaging Santa Fe cathedral was only option

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Archbishop John C. Wester is speaking about the decision to mortgage an iconic Santa Fe cathedral to meet a settlement agreement tied to church sex abuse victims. Wester told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Thursday the archdiocese has “pretty much sold everything.” Parishes were told last month they would collectively need to borrow $12 million to pay for the settlements. Still, the decision to use the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi shocked many. The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy protection in 2018 as sex abuse claims surged. It agreed in May to a tentative deal totaling more than $121 million and involving 375 claimants.

Opinion: Veterans and Their Families Urge the Santa Fe City Council to Hang Hometown Heroes Banners

So, apparently, there is a safety concern with hanging veteran banners on specific light poles on Cerrillos road. While this may be understandable at some level, the problem is that the efforts to find alternative solutions are quite minimal, and many doubt the legitimacy of these safety concerns, especially since other banners of a different nature have remained on other light poles which are very similar and the veterans and families have paid for the honor.
