Amid so much gloomy economic news for New Mexico, it’s encouraging to hear that the sale of La Castañeda Hotel in Las Vegas, N.M., has been finalized.

The classic 1898 hotel, once home to a Teddy Roosevelt Roughrider reunion, former Harvey House and location of movies from Red Dawn to Speechless, deserves preservation. Buyer Allan Affeldt and his wife, Tina Mion, closed the deal last week. Congratulations to all who helped put the complicated deal together.

    I like the little dig,..."a vibrant La Castañeda is yet another reason to save the Southwest Chief Amtrak route."

    My view is that you can always donate private funds to preserve the tracks.
