Sackman, Andrew R.
Andrew R. Sackman - The Pueblo Chieftain - March 23, 2000 - Sackman played major role in Pueblo's growth by Mary Jean Porter - Andrew R. Sackman, known to everyone as Andy, was from a different generation in more ways than one. "I think being part of that generation, sacrificing and going through the Depression made for a different kind of person, one you don't see anymore," said Sackman's niece, Rosemary Sekera of Pueblo. "They grew up and thought they could contribute to the community, thought they could learn more all of the time," added niece Sharon Young of Boulder. Sackman, who went to Centennial High School with the late David Packard and who started banks and developed much of Pueblo's South Side, died March 20 at the age of 89. He had been in declining health, his family said. Recitation of the rosary will be at 9:30 a.m. today, followed by a funeral Mass at St. Mary Church and interment at Roselawn Cemetery. Sackman was born in Scofield, Utah, to Antonio and Mary Saccamanno. They had come to the United States from Calabria, Italy. After the family moved to Pueblo, he and his siblings shortened their name to Sackman. He and his brother, John, started Sackman Insurance Agency in 1935 and Republic National Bank (now Norwest Bank of Sunset Park) in 1962. He also co-founded First Savings Industrial Bank and Centennial Bank of Blende, and he was a director of First National Bank. The Sackmans and John's wife, Neta, were in business for nearly 50 years, Mrs. Sackman said. They helped develop the Sunset Park Shopping Center and a South Side neighborhood that stretched from St. Clair Avenue to Highland Park. "Young people couldn't get loans, so they built these small houses, about 200 of them," Mrs. Sackman said. Sackman was a "frugal, shrewd" businessman, she said. He also was a believer in supporting his community, and he was a fine athlete. He was active in the local unit of the American Cancer Society, served on the lay advisory board of St. Mary-Corwin hospital and on the local board of directors of the Boy Scouts, was a charter member of the John Neumann Catholic School Foundation and an active member of the Catholic Church and its Nocturnal Adoration Society for men. Although he was short, Sackman played basketball on the 1930 Centennial High team along with Packard, Dale Rea, James Fimple and Raymond "Red" LeMasters. More than half a century later, in 1985, he was inducted into the Greater Pueblo Sports Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Centennial High School Hall of Fame in 1987. Sackman also served on the committee that forged Pueblo's city charter. In his later years, he was known as "the mayor of Fordham Circle," said his niece, Jonna Lee Adamich, who lived a few houses away. "He would serenade us with songs. He would walk the neighborhood. He was always telling everybody what to do about their house or their car," she said. Sackman was preceded in death by his wife, Mary, and his brothers and sisters, Albert, John, Louis, Frances and Rose.

Sajn, Gioanni
Gioanni Sajn – Telluride Daily Journal – January 23, 1907 – Explosion in Trinidad Mine Today – An explosion in the main entry of the mouth of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company's coal mine at Primero occurred this morning. It is reported that twenty miners were killed and may be more. The explosion it is supposed was caused by a "windy shot." The body of Frank Hobat, timberman, has been recovered. There is great excitement at Primero. A private message says there were sixteen men in the mine at the time of the explosion. How many were killed is not known. Primero is twenty miles west of Trinidad and all means of communication are controlled by the Fuel Company which will not allow news of the accident to be sent out except by its officers. Durango Wage Earner – January 24, 1907 – Telegraph News – Trinidad, Jan. 23 – Early this morning an explosion occurred in the Colorado Fuel & Iron company's coal mine at Primero and twenty men are reported killed. The mine is the largest in these parts. The explosion is presumed to be due to a windy shot. A relief train left here with doctors and nurses for the scene of the disaster, twenty miles away. The first body recovered was that of Frank Hobart, a timberman. Details of the accident have not yet been received. Communication facilities between Trinidad and Primero are entirely inadequate and it is very difficult to get any details of the catastrophe. The Colorado Fuel & Iron company owns the only telegraph line connecting the camp and news of the explosion, except that destined for main offices in Denver, is religiously excluded. The telephone wire is owned by the Colorado Telephone company, but the only place in Primero where any information regarding the accident can be obtained is at the Colorado Fuel & Iron company's store, where, as might be expected, the employes are not inclined to give out anything for publication, as it is against strict orders and it might lead to dismissal from service. The mine where the explosion took place is fully a mile from the company's store. It is understood that the greatest excitement exists at the mine, where rescue gangs are hard at work clearing away the debris and locating the bodies of the dead miners. At the company's store a statement was given out rather belittling the seriousness of the accident, but the fact remains that many are dead. The company says they are all foreigners. Telluride Daily Journal – January 24, 1907 – 24 Killed in an Explosion at Trinidad – Trinidad, Jan. 24 – A rescue party worked all night in two hour shifts at the Primero coal mine where an explosion occurred yesterday morning, but little progress was made owing to the large quantity of wreckage in the way. The bodies of four dead have been recovered and according to the best information obtainable twelve more miners are missing and supposed to be dead in the mine. They are all foreigners. Had the explosion occurred in the day time over 100 men would have been entombed. Later – Official announcement was made this afternoon at the local office of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company that 24 were killed by the Primero explosion. Creede Candle – January 26, 1907 – Mine Explosion – Twenty Lives Believed to be Lost at Primero – Shock Like an Earthquake – Deadly Disaster in Las Animas County Mine of Colorado Fuel & Iron Company – Frantic Woman and Children Looking for Lost Ones – Denver – A Trinidad special to the Republican Wednesday night says: One of the worst mine disasters which has visited southern Colorado for a year was an explosion in the mine of the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company, at Primero, about 3 o'clock this morning, which is believed to have caused the death of twenty miners, the entire shift, besides badly wrecking parts of the mine. The explosion was felt throughout the camp rocking houses and causing the inhabitants to believe that an earthquake had visited that section, and the populace, so rudely awakened, fled terror stricken from their homes. Excitement soon was intense. The latest information to-night is that twenty men were in the mine and it is the general belief that all are dead. At 7 o'clock tonight a total of four bodies had been recovered, the name of only one being given. He was Frank Hobat, a miner, whose body was recovered this morning near the main entrance to the mine. Among the known dead is R. J. Lumley, the fire boss, who is believed to be the only American caught in the disaster, the others being Italians and Austrians. The force of the explosion stopped the fan which conveys air into the mine. The main entrance is blocked with a mass of rock and timber as are also the two air shafts which were the only possible means of escape for the entombed men, had any of them been fortunate enough to have been alive. It is believed that those who were not instantly killed were suffocated by the afterdamp, as all means of escape were cut off. The mine in which the explosion occurred is known as the North mine, it being located north of the other mines of that camp. Late to-night the mine had only been penetrated 200 feet through the main entrance. The work of the rescue party is most difficult. Large boulders, some weighing several tons, blocked the entrance. Timbers were broken like toothpicks, letting down tons and tons of earth and other debris. Miners from nearby camps flocked to the rescue of their fellow workmen at the first news of the disaster and as a result several hundred men are on the ground ready to render all assistance possible. News of the explosion went quickly through the camp this morning and within a few minutes the main entrance was surrounded with frantic women and children looking for their husbands, brothers, fathers and sons. Many of the women in their excitement attempted to assist the miners in gaining entrance to the mine, but they soon saw that their efforts were futile and then it slowly dawned upon them that all in the mine were dead. The scenes were pitiful. Fort Collins Courier – January 30, 1907 – Bodies of 12 Coal Miners Recovered – Special to the Courier – Trinidad, Colo., Jan. 25 – After working all night the rescuing party at the Primero coal mine, was rewarded by the recovery of four more bodies at an early hour this morning. The bodies of twelve of the unfortunate victims have now been taken from the mine. The rescue party has penetrated through the main entrance of the mine nearly half a mile. The men have been constantly at work, day and night, since the explosion early last Wednesday morning. Durango Democrat – January 26, 1907 – 23 Bodies Recovered From the Mine at Primero – Trinidad, Colo., Jan. 25 – Twenty-three bodies of the victims of the explosion in the Primero mine of the Colorado Fuel & Iron company had been recovered by nightfall today. Only one body remains in the mine, that of R. J. Lumley, the only American who met death in the explosion. It develops that the interior of the mine is not so badly wrecked as was at first reported. Golden Colorado Transcript – February 7, 1907 – In response to a request from Pasqualo Corte, Italian consul, Governor Buchtel has undertaken an inquiry into the recent accident in the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company coal mine at Primero, in the southern coal fields, where a number of coal miners lost their lives. He is most anxious to get at the bottom and learn whether anything can be done by the state to prevent such accidents in the future. He has instructed the coal mine inspector to go to the scene and make a thorough investigation a second time. Summit County Journal – February 9, 1907 – Investigating Mine Explosion – Denver – A Trinidad dispatch Tuesday night says: John B. D. Jones, state coal mine inspector, accompanied by Deputy Griffith, arrived today from Denver and went at once to Primero, where they will make a special investigation into the explosion there in which twenty-four lives were lost. Mr. Jones and his deputy were sent here to make a special inquiry on request of Italian Consul Corte. Mr. Jones said: "The result of my investigation will be given first to Governor Buchtel. I do not know how long it will take and I may be at Primero the rest of the week. The examination will be most thorough." Note: Gioanni Sajn is listed among the dead of the Primero Mine disaster of January 23, 1907 through the Denver Library's collection entitled "Colorado Mining Fatalities." It lists Gioanni Sajn as a Hungarian, age 30, and single. He was working as a "day man" for Colorado Fuel & Iron, and the cause of death was listed as an explosion of gas and dust.

Salameno, Norma
Norma Salameno - Pueblo Chieftain - April 02, 2002 - Age 82, of Westcliffe died March 27, 2002, in Florence, Colo. She was born June 7, 1919, in Scranton, Pa., to Antonio and Cecelia (Gambucci) Cianfichi. On March 16, 1946, in Scranton, Pa., she was married to Melio "Chuck" Salameno who preceded her in death. Mrs. Salameno was a member of Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, Silver Cliff Club-Altar -Rosary Society, and the Women's Club. As a young girl, she worked at a poultry factory and each Friday she would go and buy herself a new dress. She took great pride in looking like a lady, right down to her gloves and hat. She would always tell the story of the time she was arrested for indecent exposure, as one day she was riding in one of "those old cars" and the heater ran constantly, so she took off her shoes and put her feet up on the dashboard, and that was considered indecent. After her marriage, she and her husband started off for Colorado, and, being a big city girl, she had no idea of what country life was all about. One of the stories she would always share was how amazed she was that they milked "papa cows" in Colorado, because only the "papa cows" had horns in the area she grew up in. She had shared this story with a reporter from The Pueblo Chieftain, and he thought it was so funny that a cartoon was in the paper later in the week. She was a great mother and grandmother and will be missed by all. She is survived by her sister, Elsie (Wally) Veronco of Scranton, Pa.; son, Dominick (Dolly) Salameno of Colorado City, Colo., grandchildren, Angela (Patrick) Lira, Kim (Harry) Krecklow and Charles (Michelle) Salameno, all of Westcliffe, Colo.; six great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Interment will follow at Assumption Cemetery in Silver Cliff. Memorial donations may be made to St. Joseph Manor Activity Fund, Florence, Colo.

Salas, Antonio Maria
Antonio Maria Salas – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – March 4, 1875 – Walsenburg – 2-22-1875 – Our fellow citizen R. B. Willis, has had a very serious difficulty. It seems that a certain McClure, hailing from the St. Charles, came recently back to his old stamping ground at the Spanish Peaks, where he also claims land, having had a ranch which he disposed of, and thinking, very likely, that claim taking pays, came back, but finding that all the valuable places had been taken, he concluded that probably the best and quickest way would be to take possession of one portion of R. B. Willis' ranch, by building a cabin, (I guess to make improvements to hold the same) just outside of Willis' fence. Mr. Willis, returning from the funeral of the late Mr. Arrington, (who leaves a young widow, having been married only three weeks) on coming down the hill to his home and seeing the cabin going up, suspected what was going on. On reaching his sheep corral with his family, looking back he saw a man coming across the hill. On coming near, Mr. Willis halted and requested the stranger to accompany him and bear witness of his notifying them to desist. The stranger, who for good or bad, had a double barrel shot gun, readily granted the request. On coming near the new cabin, of course Willis used pretty rough language and saw this man McClure right opposite him in one corner getting his six-shooter ready, but he was not quick enough for Bob and firing commenced. A general stampede of the inmates followed. It is said that one, the Mexican, was climbing the wall like a cat. Baker thought he was shot, but only his clothes felt the pain. By this time a general stampede had begun, of all the inmates of the cabin. In the meantime, Willis stepped into the cabin, his opponent having left his corner, facing Mr. Willis on entering, when shots were again exchanged. Mr. Willis not having any more shots retired, followed by McClure. The stranger all this time had been standing on the outside. McClure, on coming out, fired at the stranger, who in turn could not or would not stand such proceedings, and brought down his shotgun, but just at the fatal moment a Mexican, who was hired by McClure, (Antonio Maria Salas, an honest and very good Mexican) ran out and received the whole charge and died two hours afterwards. The other charge was given to McClure, who it seems, is still alive. Of course during this shooting all the rest of the party had taken French leave. A coroner's jury was had and their verdict reads: "Salas came to his death by some unknown person" for the stranger was not slow in "getting," though regretting the shooting of the innocent one, or of any one. Mr. Willis was down here, for our efficient sheriff, Thomas Sproule, went up promptly and brought down all who were suspected. After a trial of two days before his honor Judge Read, assisted by Judge Standly, and further prosecuted by James Collins, he was held in the sum of $3,000 to appear at the next district court. All this resulted from land jumping. Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – March 25, 1875 – Attempted Claim Jumping – One Man Killed and Another Mortally Wounded – One Monday last, two men named Oscar McClure and _____ Baker, went to a piece of fenced land belonging to Robert B. Willis, Esq., on his ranch near the Spanish Peaks, in Huerfano county, taking with them an old Mexican known as Antonio Maria, and commenced to build a house, with the intention of holding the land. When Mr. Willis found out what was going on, he went to the spot and commenced to question the parties as to what they were doing there. During the conversation one of them tried to draw his revolver, but Mr. Willis was rather too quick for him and had the first shot. Several shots were exchanged, during which the Mexican was killed outright, and McClure, it is supposed, mortally wounded. Mr. Willis and Baker escaped unhurt. Claim jumping is, as many have found to their sorrow, a very dangerous business in Colorado. McClure and Baker receive no sympathy whatever from their neighbors, the general opinion being that it was a pity that Baker was not shot instead of the Mexican, who, it appears, was only employed by the jumpers, and not intentionally hurt. Mr. Willis is one of our most respectable and peaceable citizens, and we are satisfied that he must have received some great provocation to cause him to act as he did. Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – March 25, 1875 – Cucharas Claim Jumping Case – The Statement of O. J. McClure – We publish herewith the statement of O. J. McClure, one of the men shot in the attempt to jump part of R. B. Willis' land, on the Cucharas. This account differs from the accounts sent us by our correspondents, but being anxious that all parties should have a hearing, we publish it at Mr. McClure's request: About the first of February O. J. McClure went to Spanish Peaks to see about procuring a home. The neighbors told him of a place unoccupied adjoining R. B. Willis' claim, that was first owned two years ago by a man by the name of Crumley. A short time afterwards R. B. Willis gave him twenty dollars for his house. R. B. Willis' brother came on a short time after and lived on it a few months. Then he found a place on the Cucharas, five or six miles above, that he liked better, and abandoned the place adjoining R. B. Willis' and left it unoccupied for one year. O. J. McClure had taken the place and was building a house. He had four men helping him and all were in the house at work when Willis made his appearance in the door and said, "What are you doing here you sons of b------" and fired as he spoke at Baker, shooting through his clothes from one side of his breast to the other, which paralyzed his left arm. Baker said, "Hold on Mr. Willis" and he replied "d—m your heart," and the next shot was immediately fired at McClure. Willis' herder then killed the Mexican with a shot gun, as he attempted to make his escape outside of the house. All this was done before McClure had drawn his revolver from the scabbard. Willis then retreated outside of the house, and came back and looking in saw McClure, and both fired simultaneously. Willis then got back ten or twelve steps from the door and after an intermission of about five minutes McClure thought they might be plotting to take advantage of him and he jumped outside of the door and both fired again. McClure having no more loads in his revolver then ran, and when off about twenty-five or thirty steps the shot gun was fired at him. He whirled around and saw Willis taking the gun from his shoulder, then turned around and pursued his course and ran a quarter or a half of a mile before falling. Some of the neighbors told Willis that McClure had received six shots and was mortally wounded. Willis remarked, "I hope he will die. I intended to kill him when I went there." All of the above will be proved in court. The largest part of this affair previously published is false. Oscar J. McClure.

Salazar, Henry S.
Henry S. Salazar - Pueblo Chieftain - December 25, 2001 - Statement by the family of Henry S. Salazar Dec. 24, 2001 At the age of almost 86, Henry Salazar died at Presbyterian/ St. Luke's Hospital in Denver on Saturday, Dec. 22, 2001. On Wednesday, Dec. 19, he suffered a heart attack and was flown from the San Luis Valley to Denver. That same morning he had visited his sons and had spent time feeding his cattle on the banks of the San Antonio River in Conejos County. Our father walked the same soil walked by three generations before him at Los Rincones. In 1848, the northern New Mexicans became the first non-Indian settlers of the Colorado. Before that time, Dad's ancestors had made a living farming the soils next to the Rio Grande north of Santa Fe. They had helped settle the city of Santa Fe in 1598. After the Mexican-American War in 1848, Dad's family moved into the southern part of the San Luis Valley and settled in Los Rincones and Las Sauces. They never left, and at the age of almost 86, our father was part of this historical landscape for more than half of its non-Indian history. Our father was born on March 11, 1916. He grew up working on the farm. He attended a one-room schoolhouse in Los Cerritos and later rode his horse 5 miles to Manassa and graduated from Manassa High School in 1935. He continued to work on the farm for a few years, and then went to serve his country in World War II and became a staff sergeant in the United States Army. After his service in the Army, he returned to Los Rincones to take care of his mother and father and to continue his work on the family ranch. He married Emma M. Montoya from San Miguel, N.M., in 1948. Emma and Henry had eight children, Leandro, LeRoy, John, Ken, Elaine, Margaret, Elliott and June. Today, Henry and Emma have 14 grandchildren. Over the years, Dad was very involved both with his family and his community. He led the efforts to preserve the cemetery at Los Cerritos through the formation of a cemetery district. He served on the school district accountability committees, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Conejos County Board of Directors, the parish council for St. Joseph Parish, as well as serving for many years as secretary for the Los Rincones Ditch Company, and led the effort to revive the Knights of Columbus in Conejos County. Our father also drove back and forth from the ranch to Fort Garland for nearly 18 years while he worked as a Port of Entry officer to help provide for his family. Even though we were poor, our father is and was always rich in spirit. He shared a vision and dream with our mother of a better and less difficult life for their children. They knew that education was a keystone to success. Our father would often say. "I can't leave you riches or great wealth, but we can make sure that you get a good education." He would continue, "A good education is more important, because no one can ever take your education away." Because of that vision, all eight of their children graduated from college. Dad also taught us the value of hard work. Perhaps because he had seen the hardships of the Great Depression, he knew that he and his family all had to work hard to survive. Work was a way of life, and leisure was a rare occasion --- few holidays, weekends were the same as weekdays except for Mass on Sunday, and 15-hour days for all of us were typical. But as hard as his children worked, he worked even harder because he was proud and he would never let his family down. Dad also was not afraid of housework. In 1961, our Mom surprised herself and all her family with triplets. Overnight our family grew from seven to 10. We remember our father in those days frequently washing diapers until the morning dawn. Our father also taught us the importance of community and that loving our neighbors should be shown in deeds, not only in words. He often shared the fruits of our harvest --- potatoes and meat --- with neighbors and family. He frequently gave of his time and our time to help neighbors and families in need. Dad also taught us the difference between right and wrong. For him, upholding the pride of the family name meant that the line between right and wrong was never blurred. He lived a life of impeccable integrity and honesty. Our father also taught us the value of faith. He was a deeply religious man. We would be required to go to church every Sunday and frequently in the late night hours pray the Catholic rosary as a family. Perhaps it was his faith that made him fearless regardless of the many hardships that he faced. In our minds and hearts, Henry Salazar will always be a living and great example. A rosary for Henry Salazar will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 26, at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church, 19617 State Highway 285, La Jara, Colo., (719) 274-5647. Funeral services will be held Thursday, Dec. 27, at 11 a.m., also at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in La Jara. Because of Henry's devotion to the education of young people, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the following educational scholarship fund, LAEF --- Henry and Emma Salazar Scholarship Fund, c/o P.O. Box 227, Manassa, CO 81141.

Sandy, Lyman Gage
Lyman Gage Sandy – Albuquerque Journal - March 09, 2002 - Lyman Gage Sandy, age 56, entered eternal life on Tuesday, March 5, 2002, from the arms of his loving wife of almost 28 years, Alison K. Schuler. A man of extraordinary brilliance, wide-ranging knowledge, wit, talent and integrity, he was admired, loved and emulated by all who knew him. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1967, and then served for two years as a VISTA volunteer in Pueblo, Colorado. He returned to The Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, and from which he earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 1972. After law school, Mr. Sandy spent a year clerking for Judge John Minor Wisdom of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, and thereafter joined the prestigious Washington, D.C. law firm of Covington & Burling, where, among more intellectual legal pursuits such as native claims to Alaskan land, he reviewed transcripts of Captain Kangaroo for educational content. To her great good fortune, Mr. Sandy married Alison Schuler, a law school classmate, in 1974. In 1975, at the urging of their good friend and now 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge, Harris Hartz, Mr. Sandy and his wife came to New Mexico as Assistant United States Attorneys, as the first married couple permitted to be hired by the Department of Justice. Mr. Sandy later joined the eminent local law firm of Miller, Stratvert, & Torgerson, concentrating primarily in complex defense litigation, where he continued to practice as a partner with his esteemed colleagues until his death. In 1985, as Mr. Sandy reported in his 20th anniversary report for Harvard College, "I found myself a father for the first time at age forty...Teddy is a source of constant joy and will soon be smarter than his father. He is also hard to catch, which suggests to me something of the wisdom of earlier parenting." In addition to law practice and parenting, Mr. Sandy served as president of the Harvard-Radcliffe Club of New Mexico, co-chair of the Harvard Campaign, and Regional Director for the Harvard Alumni Association. He observed, after attending the celebrations of the 350th anniversary of the founding of Harvard College,"[I]t was good to listen to people like Michael Walzer without having to scribble notes.

Santistevan, Felix
Felix Santistevan - Walsenburg World - October 29, 1928 - Felix Santistevan is shot dead in fracas last Sunday morning. Frank Heckmann, local painter, held in the County Jail charged with the killing. Primary motive is unknown. Edgar Neumann, Salesman, Receives Slight Wound When One Shot Goes Wild. The Montez dance hall on West Eighth Street, this city, was the setting early Sunday morning of a shooting resulting in one man killed and another injured. Felix Santistevan, 30 years old, a coal miner, was slain by a shot through the neck and also one through the body; Edgar Neumann, 30, who says he is a salesmen and the that his home is in South Dakota, is in Lamme Brothers hospital suffering with a flesh wound. Frank Heckmann, about 60 years old, a Walsenburg painter, is lodged in the county jail here pending charges to be filed against him. Santistevan is said to have been in one of the main rooms at the hall, as was also Heckmann. While details of the actual shooting are unavailable today, it is said by witnesses that Heckmann called Santistevan into a small adjoining room to talk to him in private. Some time later frequenters of the place in the main part of the building said they heard three shots fired. One of these shots came through the partition, striking Neumann, who with three other companions is said to have been seated at a table playing cards. Frank Churchill, said to be the proprietor of the place, rushed into the adjoining room, where the shooting took place, and took charge of Heckmann. When officers arrived, they found Santistevan dead on the floor and a .88 caliber revolver with three shots gone lying on the floor by the side of Heckmann's chair. Deputy Sheriff Henry Hart was called to the scene and lodged Heckmann in the county jail. Heckmann, who is alleged to have been drinking, virtually admitted to officers that he fired the shots which sent Santistevan to his death. However, this morning he refused to make a statement that would throw light on the motive for the killing. Deputy Coroner Gabe Furphy announced this morning that a coroner's inquest will be held tonight at 7:30 at the court house. Charges are expected to be filed against Heckmann following this inquest. County Coroner Edward Slates is ill and was not able to make the investigation. There were a considerable number of frequenters at the dance hall at the time of the shooting and it was learned that most of them were unaware that there was any trouble brewing until they heard the three shots and found Santistevan dead. Neumann, who is said to be recovering rapidly at the Lamme Brothers hospital from the effects of his slight flesh wound, stated today he and his three companions, also said to be salesman, were playing cards in one of the main rooms of the place when the shooting occurred. Santistevan's body was removed from the dance hall and taken to the Furphy Brothers undertaking parlors. The deputy coroner, who conducted the preliminary examination at the scene of the shooting, said two bullets entered Santistevan's body. One bullet entered the left side of the chest passing diagonally through the body. Another bullet entered his neck on the right side, passing completely through the neck. The neck was broken by this bullet. Either of the two shots would have been fatal, the deputy coroner stated this morning.

Walsenburg World – February 21, 1929 – Heckmann Sentenced to Prison for 18 Years – Slayer of Felix Santistevan Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder – Judge Passes Heavier Sentence to Provide Heckmann With Home in Old Age – Frank Heckmann, 59, who was found guilty yesterday afternoon of manslaughter in the second degree, was sentenced this morning by Judge A. F. Hollenbeck of the district court to not less than 18 years nor more than 25 years in the state penitentiary at Canon City. Heckman was found guilty of killing Felix Santistevan, 30, local miner, at the Montez dance hall on West Eighth Street on October 28. Heckmann and Santistevan were alleged to have quarreled over a card game and in the ensuing fracas, Heckmann is alleged to have drawn a gun. The first shot he fired was wild and penetrated a partition, striking Edgar Neumann, a traveling salesman, in the leg. Heckmann is then alleged to have fired two more shots, one of them striking Santistevan in the neck and the other in the body. Santistevan died instantly. In his final plea to the court this morning before sentence was passed on Heckmann, I. E. Schachet, his attorney, asked that the court be lenient with his client due to his age and to the fact that the crime was committed under the influence of liquor. "It is difficult to know what to do with a case of this kind," Judge Hollenbeck said to Heckmann. "You are a man nearly 60 years old. The minimum penalty for your crime is 10 years. At the end of that time you will be nearly 70 years old, without a job and with no friends, and a prison record behind you. It will be kinder to sentence you to a longer term to insure you a home in your old age." He then passed the sentence. Heckmann will probably be taken to Canon City later in the week.

Funeral Mass, 10 a.m. Wednesday, Our Lady of the Assumption Church. Eutimio "Tim" Santos - Pueblo Chieftain - November 22, 2006 - 'Gentleman Cop' dies after lengthy illness - Tim Santos - Services for Pueblo's "Gentleman Cop" will be held today. Known to his co-workers and friends as "Saints," Eutimio "Tim" Santos, 71, died Saturday morning after slipping into a coma almost a week earlier, according to his wife Angelina "Angie" Santos. It was a sad final chapter to the retirement years Santos never got to enjoy. In July 2000, when he was two months short of retiring from the Pueblo Police Department after 32 years, Santos suffered bleeding on the brain and after two surgeries, he was left severely brain-damaged. Police Chief Jim Billings said Santos was highly regarded by his fellow police officers and the public he served. "He was well respected as a man who was very kind and slow to show his anger," said Billings. Dave Santos, an uncle to Tim Santos and himself a retired police officer, said his nephew was an exemplary officer who was "always a gentleman." "Everyone he ever came in contact with has been able to say how nice he was," said Dave Santos. "It was hard to picture him not smiling. That smile just made his personality. People gravitated to him." Mrs. Santos cherishes the memories about her husband who sadly had no memories of his own by the time he died, she said. "His memory was totally wiped out," she said. Santos suffered a seizure on Nov. 13 at the Valley View Health Care Center, a facility for victims of brain injuries in Canon City. "He was given meds to stop the seizure and he never woke up," said his wife. "He died at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday." Mrs. Santos said she will remember her husband's sweetness and dedication to his family. Even at the end of his life, he collected dividends from his life as a cop, she said. "A nurse who was taking care of him the last night (of his life) kept saying, 'I know this man.' Finally, it dawned on her that he had stopped her when she was a teenager. She had an open can of beer. Instead of running her in, he made her dump the beer and promise never to do it again," the nurse had told Mrs. Santos. "He believed in giving a kid a break." Mrs. Santos said she and her husband were an unlikely couple. After all, he was from Central High School and she was from Centennial. "He was a blind date," Mrs. Santos remembered. "He had seen me and asked his cousin to set him up. Six months down the road he proposed. 'I don't even know you,' I said. He said, 'You'll learn to love me and like it.' " The Santoses had one daughter, Kim who is married to Rich DeSimone; three granddaughters, Aubrey, Lacey and Kinsey; and two step-grandsons, Anthony and Domenic. Lacey remembered her grandfather as someone she could always count on and look up to. Aubrey said his tragic ending was very upsetting. She remembered his strong, comforting hugs. Kinsey, who was 6 when her grandfather fell ill, remembered passing up preschool to stay home with her grandmother. "I remember when he came home from work, he would say, 'Honey, I'm home.' He was my hero and will always be my hero." There will be a funeral Mass said for Santos at 10 a.m. today at Our Lady of the Assumption Church.

Sauers, Peter
Peter Sauers - Durango Democrat - July 18, 1902 – Fatal Stabbing Affray At Gardner - By Associated Press - Walsenburg, July 17, 1902 -- A stabbing affray occurred at Gardner, about 18 miles northwest of Walsenburg, Saturday, July 12, word of which has just reached here through which Peter Sauers, an old time resident of that place, received sixteen wounds which resulted in his death. The trouble came about some water rights between Sauers and R. J. Caldwell, another old-timer of Gardner. Sauers previous to this, it is said, threatened to kill Caldwell on sight, and the threat was reported to Caldwell by several parties. On Saturday, Caldwell was sitting by an old adobe building in Gardner whittling with his pocket knife. Sauers passed by and the first thing the bystanders knew Sauers had Caldwell by the whiskers. Before the people could interfere, Caldwell had cut Sauers in 16 places, in the abdomen, at the throat and through the back into the lungs. When separated by the bystanders Sauers murmured something indistinctly and started for his team, which was tied on the opposite side of the road, but fell before he reached it. Caldwell also had a gun on him but did not use it. Caldwell sent down word to Sheriff Farr that he was ready to give himself up. Sauers was arrested not long ago on a charge of misappropriating water and brought to Walsenburg, where he had his trial and was fined $100 and costs.

About the time that he might be supposed to have reached the spot where the bones were found, a heavy snow storm set in.

Sedmak, Mary Jo
Mary Jo Sedmak - Sacramento Bee – March 29, 2005 - Sacramento, CA - Obituary: Mary Jo Sedmak, 92, made waitressing an art - Mary Jo Sedmak, a top Sacramento waitress, made her customers feel like VIPs. "My mom believed that a customer always came first," daughter Mary Rohling said Monday. "She was a waitress par excellence." Ms. Sedmak, who had retired in 1984, died of natural causes in a Roseville nursing home Thursday. She was 92. Whether serving coffee at Hoyt's Donut Shop or, later, a New York steak at the Sutter Club, Ms. Sedmak made waitressing an art for more than 30 years, her daughter said. "My mom was from the old school, working hard all of her life," Rohling said. "For all her hardships, she had a great smile and a wonderful sense of humor." Ms. Sedmak culminated her career at the Sutter Club, where she worked until she was 72. "Mary Jo was a fun-loving lady who was here for many, many years," said Barbara Standley, catering manager at the Sutter Club. "She was loved by all." Mary Josephine Sedmak was born in Valdez, Colo., and later lived in Walsenburg in the state's south-central section. A coal miner's daughter, she began working after school at age 12 to help support her family. By the Great Depression, she had quit school to concentrate on work. "Some people would hire her to clean their house," Rohling said, "but when she brought money home, it wasn't for fun and games. It was for family bills." Miss Mary Jo, as she was then called, later became a waitress in Walsenburg. In the mid-1930s, she entered into a marriage that lasted about six years. In roughly 1944, her family suffered a blow when her father died. Her mother, Mary Sedmak, moved the remainder of the family to Sacramento in 1946. Soon afterward, Ms. Sedmak went to work at Hoyt's Donut Shop in North Sacramento. A year or two later, she moved to the Top of the Town, a stylish lounge atop the Elks Building on J Street. Enjoying the panoramic views, she worked there for about a decade. Eventually, Ms. Sedmak was hired at the Sutter Club. For more than 15 years, she served lunch in the Club's Grill Lounge, Standley said, as well as working other club events. Although Ms. Sedmak respected all her customers, her least favorite were those from the legal profession, Rohling said. "My mom didn't want to wait on lawyers because she said they didn't tip at all," she said. "That's the only complaint I ever heard my mother say about any of her customers." Ms. Sedmak lived in the nursing home for about two years. Before that, she had lived in Citrus Heights. "God was very good to my mom because he let her have her mental faculties up until the end," Rohling said.

Snow slides are of frequent occurrence especially in the early winter before the snow which falls very rapidly has become packed. A very slight jar or agitation will sometimes start an avalanche of several acres. The last victim we have heard of was Mr. Joseph Sellars, the faithful carrier who carries the mail from Silverton to Barber's ranch. The trail crosses the range at Cunningham gulch, and it is a dangerous road even in the summer time. He was coming east a week ago last Thursday and at Deep creek, a locality about one mile beyond Grassy Hill station, he was caught in a slide and carried down into a deep ravine and buried several feet under the snow. Mr. W. D. Watson, the keeper of Grassy Hill station, and several others exerted themselves to recover the body but did not succeed till the Monday following in finding him. The above particulars are gleaned from the Del Norte Prospector, and yesterday we learned from C. L. Weinberg that two other citizens of Silverton perished at the same time. One of them is named Morrison and the other Fred Gardner, a young lawyer formerly of Pueblo, and well known to many of our citizens. The mail had not been recovered at last accounts.

Selleck, W. E. (Mrs.)
Mrs. W. E. Selleck - Pueblo Chieftain - May 9, 1904 - Wife Killed and Husband Injured - Mrs. W. E. Selleck Meets With Fatal Accident on Fifteenth Wedding Anniversary - On the eve of her fifteenth wedding anniversary and but two days before her forty-third birthday, while driving with her husband Saturday evening about 7:30 o'clock, Mrs. W. E. Selleck was thrown from a buggy sustaining injuries from the effect of which she died about an hour later without regaining consciousness. Mr. Selleck was also seriously injured and is at his home on Dalton Heights in a precarious condition, not yet realizing that his wife is dead. Saturday forenoon Mr. Selleck purchased a new horse, and in the evening suggested to his wife that they take an evening ride to the city. She readily consented, and as soon as dinner was over they started. The horse was frisky when they started out, but not dangerously so, and no fear was entertained by either. Chatting pleasantly they drove until they reached the long hill leading to Bessemer. Here they decided to go through Bessemer, and turning the horse started up the hill. They had not gone far, however, when one of the shafts on the buggy broke. The horse became frightened and started to run. Mr. Selleck was doing everything in his power to bring the horse under control when the woman becoming excited reached over and grabbing one of the reins pulled the horse head around. The buggy was cramped and Mrs. Selleck was thrown violently to the ground. Hitting on the left side of her head, she sustained a fracture at the bass of the skull which rendered her unconscious. It was later discovered that three ribs on the left side were broken, and the left shoulder blade was broken besides several severe bruises. Mr. Selleck was not thrown from the buggy, and the horse plunged ahead, righted the buggy. Dashing up the hill he ran for about 100 yards. Mr. Selleck wildly endeavoring to get him under control. Finally plunging down an embankment, he ran into a fence throwing the occupant of the buggy several feet. He was rendered unconscious and suffered severe bruises though it is not know whether he was injured internally or not. Both the victims were picked up and taken to their home in an ambulance. Mrs. Selleck never regained conscious ness and before the physician who was immediately summoned arrived she had breathed her last. Owing to the precarious condition of her husband he has not yet been told of his wife's death. It is though, however that he will recover. Yesterday was the fifteenth anniversary of the marriage of the two victims of the runaway and today Mrs. Selleck would have been 43 years of age. She is survived by her husband and three children, all living at home. The funeral will be held from the residence tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Mrs. Selleck was a member of Carnation Circle, Woman of Woodcraft, who will have charge of the services. Interment will be made in Riverview cemetery.

Sevalues, Juan
Juan Sevalues - Yampa Leader - July 3, 1914 -Three Die, Four Hurt - Pueblo -Three men were killed , four were injured, while several others whose bodies have not been recovered, are believed to have been buried in the debris, when the engine of an extra freight train comprising thirty-two cars and caboose left the rails on the main line of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad near the Goodnight ranch, six miles west of Pueblo, and plowed into an embankment. The wreck is attributed by railroad officials to the spreading of the rails, caused by their expansion under intense heat. A repair crew was at work on the track, over which trains were passing frequently, when the accident occurred. The dead: John M. Nolan, engineer; crushed to death in his cab. Jose Perez, thirty, crushed to death in refrigerator car. Juan Sevalues, 23; crushed to death in refrigerator car. The injured: O.V. Hipps, fireman; scalded by escaping steam and bruised in jumping to safety from cab. Charles Barone, thirty, Shawnee, Okla., ribs broken and possible internal injuries. Andrew Alcon, twenty-eight, Lucerne, N.M.; bruised and possible internal injuries. George Lowe, thirty-five, member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Sparks, Nev.; broken leg. Only about half of a band of twenty-five tramps who were riding the train toward the wheat fields of Kansas have been accounted for. It is thought likely that an examination of the wreckage of the eight cars which followed the engine from the rail and were demolished may reveal more dead. None of the present list of known dead were members of the train crew except the fireman and the engineer. The body of the engineer was dug from his cab about four hours after the crash. The force of the impact of the giant freight locomotive against the soft dirt embankment forced one side of the engine into the slope for several feet. Nolan's skull was crushed and his body was completely buried.
