It is so wonderful that such a community treasure can rule the day!
Some of us at the hearing were forced to sit on the Museum Board side because the Legal Tender side was overfilled and there was not an inch to spare. The Board did not have more than a handful of supporters - just sayin.

And to Stephen Fisher. I came here from California a long time ago, and it is refreshing that someone can say in court that they are a "people person" Aquarian. California was a better place when you could still do that there.

It is only BECAUSE Cindy and John care so much about people that The Legal Tender has become such a resounding success - enough to make the Museum Board jealous. They think they can plug any old "operator" in there and keep the restaurant going. Just shows their lack of awareness and understanding - which is at the root of this issue.

Lamy's history is as much about the restaurant and saloon as it is about trains. The "museum" has little to display that isn't about the history of the saloon and restaurant, in fact. The Museum sat and collected dust for five years before the rejuvenation of the restaurant/dance hall brought so many visitors and MONEY to them. Wanting to kill off that gifted golden goose makes no sense at all, even if you don't give a hoot about the community.

Only in New Mexico would someone testify, in court, “He’s a Taurus. He’s good with money. I’m an Aquarian. I’m a people person.” Even in California, that person would be laughted out of town.

Finally, some justice and sanity brought to Lamy. Thank you Brian Egolf and Judge Ortiz. Have to wonder what the Museum Board's real agenda is ?? They let Cindy and John bring the place back to life, then try to wrestle it away for their own special interests. Wishing John and Cindy and the volunteers a smooth re-start and a long and successful presence. Can't wait to go back and enjoy the Legal Tender's wonderful atmosphere, historic character and the good food [smile].

I just hope that the Museum Board will come to the realization that this is a mutually beneficial agreement and stop the legal nonsense....

Yeehaw! Bravo! Olé! So glad to hear. I ride the train and am at that station a lot. Horrible place when nothing is open.
