When the redwood sign that adorned the entrance to the Bar O Ranch on Old Three Rivers Drive disappeared in early January, shock waves rippled through the local community. The theft of the McKee family heirloom was another sign of the times: the world has changed.
But don’t tell that to Three Rivers. It didn’t take long for an idea to hatch.
A replica sign would be created and mounted, quietly, while the family was out of town. The replacement sign is the handiwork of Bill Oliver Jr., a Three Rivers graphic artist who admits he’d rather be woodworking. The installation was donated by Fred Reimer (in photo, right) and Holland Wind (left).
