    Many of us oppose same sex marriage. It was unheard of a few short years ago because a large percent of Americans, myself included, consider it immoral, unnatural, and an assault on Christianity and people of faith. Why is it an assault? Simply because anti-discrimination laws often accompany gay marriage legislation, and the homosexuals promoting this acceptance of deviant behavior demonize those who oppose this unnatural relationship, and using civil rights jargon, attack people of faith as being bigots. There is no comparison between the black civil rights issue and homosexual demands to be married. In other words, those promoting gay marriage despitefully trump the rights and convictions of others, and use intimidation and the legal system as instruments of persecution against people of conscience. The Mayor need not make a symbolic show of support for gay marriage as a representative of Oro Valley. If he or any other official were to do so to appease the gay marriage crowd, it best not be implied that such approval reflects the views of this community.

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.
