Former city official retires to Sedona

Enticed by early indications of spring, Mark Keane, a World War II veteran and former Tucson city manager, took a walk in West Sedona.

He stood quietly watching several skateboarders through a chainlink fence in Jack Malmgren Memorial Skate Park.

Keane said he always loved school, and after graduating from high school in 1937, he enrolled in Purdue University on an academic scholarship.

The Arizona Department of Transportation rock fall containment project near Slide Rock State Park in Oak Creek Canyon is on schedule and will be completed in early April.

The project is designed to stabilize the hillside to make the Hwy. 89A corridor safer for travelers through the canyon. Two large retaining walls, which form a foundation for the stabilization effort, are visible from the highway.

Traffic control through the canyon, including the lane restriction, will continue through early April to allow crews to finish incidental work. Flaggers will remain onsite until the project is completed.

The Banjo Bill Day Use Area, which has been closed during the project to allow its use as an operations center, is expected to reopen to the public in mid-March. The Coconino County National Forest Red Rock Ranger District may be contacted at 282-4119 regarding the reopening date.

ADOT advises drivers to proceed with caution, obey all posted speed limit signs, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
