Upcoming road work 8/22-8/23

Roadwork on Buenagua Road from Bill Christian’s house to past Hepworth’s will commence on Aug. 22 through Aug. 23.  Access will be granted through Tontozona as the road will be entirely closed those two days.  Those directly affected (who live directly on the  portion of the road being worked on) will be notified personally as they will not have access to their homes those two days

A note on the passing of Dick Lamb

Dick Lamb, a full-time resident of Kohl’s Ranch and long-time member of our community, recently passed away.  He resided at 489 South Buenagua.  He left his beautiful wife, Marilyn, as well as children.  Marilyn is Dave Manor’s sister so Dave and Susan lost a brother-in-law.  

A Celebration of Life service will be held for Dick on July 27th, which would have been Dick and Marilyn’s 60th wedding anniversary.  It will be held at Messenger Funeral Home in Payson (901 South Westerly Road) from 11:00 A.M. until noon, with a reception immediately following from noon until 3:00 P.M.  

Your Kohl’s Ranch neighbors will miss you, Dick.

Update: Corrected service date. 

Kohl’s ranch rattlesnake awareness

Greetings neighbors,
On behalf of Corina Cox (who brought this information to our attention), I would like to let everyone know that a few rattlesnakes showed up in cabin owner’s yards this week.  Two on Buenagua Road and one on Saddle Mountain (pretty far from the creek).

They are Arizona Black Rattlesnakes.

Adults are black with yellow stripes and juveniles are a lighter gray/brown with brown blotches.
