    Regarding the House Bill 2625 about to be voted upon by the Arizona Senate: whether or not a woman takes birth control pills or treatments is nobody's business but her own, especially not the business of employers or employees that want to shove their religious beliefs and restrictions on others. In spite of religious zeal, if you can't afford to care for a child for at least 20 years, you should think twice before conceiving of one ( or more).
    What we need in our society is realization that over-population is putting a strain on our planet's resources. As. UNited Nations studies have discovered, as soon as more women in more places in the world realize that they can decide on the size of their family and are given the resources to do so, the world's population will begin to stabilize. President Obama realizes this, of course, but does the Arizona Senate?
    It is truly impressive that people want to stand up and carry out their beliefs in their work place. We need to honor their sincerity. Think about what "pro-life" would really mean in our society that spends so much on weapons systems, drone bombers, and cruel border practices. Let's think deeply about these things!

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.
