Last week, the mystery of Charles Lacy came up since his memorial in the canyon has been cleaned up with mementos appearing regularly. Charlie and his dog, Ringo, used to play on the Red Car Property "meadow" and in the canyon. He grew up in the neighborhood, graduated Marshall High School and planted trees with the Conservation Corps. Charlie was a dedicated environmentalist and avid hiker. His mother hoped he would have been around to fight development of the Red Car Property the way he did with Fryman Canyon at the age of ten. Read more about Charles Lacy at Travels Without Charlie.
