“LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE GOT SMART!”

.

 

Friday (7/15/22), a Ranch Matters member posted 3 photographs of a Crooked River Ranch (CRR) utility truck pulling a trailer, south bound on 97, stacked with some of the panels purchased by the Ranch for their now defunct rodeo.

.
.

The member stated: “Looks like someone got smart” and commented: “That’s definitely not all of them on the trailer…”

.

“…NOT ALL OF THEM…” ?

.

Ranch Matters (RM) located additional GREY PANELS stacked on a new trailer in the Ranch Boneyard. There were no brown panels.

QUICK RECAP

Since the sudden cancellation of “Bill and Judy’s Rodeo” last April, RM has been bombarded with tips and questions regarding the Board’s secretive process, their so-called survey and the tax money spent for the wrong rodeo panels.

On May 25, we published a report titled: “WHAT DOES $23K LOOK LIKE” that included several photographs of BROWN and GREY PANELS stacked side-by-side and on top of each other.

At the June 20th Regular Board meeting, President Burt and the Board held a lively discussion regarding the cancelled rodeo and rodeo panels. Burt directed some of his comments towards RM-John’s Stevens regarding the panels. He stated: “The pictures that our friend here took was the brown ones out there?” He added:

“Thanks for not taking pictures of the GREY ones, so that everybody would actually get the truth.”

Burt willfully lied to the meeting attendees and Members of the Homeowners Association regarding the published photos. As stated above, our May 25 story included stacks of Brown and Grey panels.

After a lengthy discussion the Board unanimously approved returning the panels.

“THANKS FOR NOT TAKING PICTURES OF THE GREY ONES…”
