The spring “Music in the Park” concert series returns to Oracle State Park, with three concerts scheduled on Sundays through June.

In their fifth year, the concerts are a special event fundraiser presented by the Friends of Oracle State Park. They’ll be held outdoors at the Kannally Ranch House. No reservation is needed. Tickets are available in advance or the day of the event for $10 each. The cost includes the entrance fee to Oracle State Park. Annual park passes do not apply for this special event; kids age 13 and younger are free.

Music begins this Sunday, April 26, when Kip Calahan performs from 2 to 4 p.m. Calahan is a country and western singer / songwriter whose style can be compared to Patsy Kline. She’s recorded many songs about cowboys, cowgirls, the West and ranch life, has been a featured performer and is much-honored, a release said.

On Sunday, May 10, local favorite “Diamond Jim” Hewitt and Friends perform a full moon concert from 7 to 9 p.m. His ensemble includes a mix of jazz, Celtic hoedown and bluegrass, featuring Hewitt on the fiddle.

The last concert of the series is set for Sunday, June 7, with another evening performance from 7 to 9 p.m. on the upper patio. The performer will be announced at a later time.

For tickets or more information call Oracle State Park at (520) 896-2425. Oracle State Park, Center for Environmental Education, is a 4,000-acre wildlife refuge located in the northern foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains in the town of Oracle north of Tucson. The Mediterranean revival-style historic Kannally Ranch House and patios offer sweeping views of the Galiuro Mountains and surrounding area.

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.
