TOOK A NOSTALGIA TOUR this week, driving up Goose Lake Road.
Every half a kilometer or so there’s a “Private Property” sign saying the land belongs to Sugarloaf Ranch Ltd., which, of course, was purchased by KGHM. A couple of the signs have been defaced with spray-painted graffiti.
Not far from the turnoff onto Goose Lake Road, one of the gates onto the Ajax property is still there, still locked, but the Ajax sign is gone.
