My environmental column in the Monitor Tuesday (Oct. 6) extolled the virtues of Myra McCormick and the Bear Mountain Lodge she bequeathed to The Nature Conservancy.
Bad news from Silver City came the next morning.
A business story in the Albuquerque Journal was headlined: “Nature Conservancy’s Bear Mountain Lodge Near Silver City Succumbs to Budget Woes ... NO MORE GUESTS.”
The space between the two-story headings was filled with a large color photo of Ms. McCormick sitting on the low white wall in front of the lodge.
Reading further, “Bear Mountain Lodge ... is the latest victim of a struggling economy. After being willed to the conservancy 10 years ago, the lodge will close and the conservancy plans to put the property on the market.” The lodge’s Web site mentioned in my column is closed down.
At the Grant County Assessor’s Office, the 11-room guest ranch and 160 acres are valued at nearly $1.3 million. Restrictions of the sale will include no subdividing. The story continues.
