A note from the board of directors

Otis Smith, one of our Kohl’s Ranch neighbors who had a cabin on Buenagua, died Wednesday, January 28th.  Otis was the father of Shannon Smith who died tragically in Phoenix in 1999 from a random gun shot fired into the sky.  Otis and his wife Lory Smith, who died in 2008, became publicly known for pushing legislation that would make negligently firing a weapon within a municipality a felony — legislation that would be known, in their daughter’s honor, as Shannon’s Law.
