2009-05-09 Tucson Time Capsule : Ranch owner didn't horse around (starnet-local)
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/292158.php
For more than 27 years, Jack Jackson and his wife, Colette, ran their Western-style resort surrounded by the isolated sights and sounds of the Sonoran Desert. But civilization was encroaching on the Sundancer Saddle and Surrey, at 4110 W. Sweetwater Drive, and Jackson knew the dude-ranch atmosphere was threatened. On May 9, 1979, Jackson, shown here with a couple of his "stable hands," acknowledged this, saying: "I figure I've got maybe 10 years left here. It's not conducive to good business to have a guest ranch located in a subdivision." The resort operated until the 1980s and was then converted to the Cottonwood de Tucson treatment center.
