As part of its recycling education efforts serving the Tucson-Pima County metropolitan area, Tucson Clean & Beautiful invites students in grades K-12 as well as adults who are professional or aspiring recycled artists, to participate in the RUMBA (Re-Used Materials Becoming Art) showcase and competition to be held at the 2011 SAHBA Spring Home & Patio Show in April.

Registration ends March 25.

Individuals of all ages and artistic abilities, school classrooms/clubs, and organizations are invited to enter recycled art for display. K-12 student entries will be selected to receive special prizes and certificates. All entries by adults or youth will receive a certificate of participation.

RUMBA creations must be three-dimensional, no larger than 2 feet by 3 feet to fit on tables, or larger pieces that can be freestanding. Any previously used materials can be used to make the recycled art. Scraps of plastic, paper, wood, metal, old toys and parts of broken things are the foundation for this type of art.

To obtain a RUMBA registration form, visit www.tucsoncleanandbeautiful.org or call 791-5000.

Tucson Clean & Beautiful is a nonprofit organization incorporated in 1985 as the flagship for community based environmental volunteer efforts in the Tucson metro area.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
