On March 29, the Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge #2815 presented Community service awards to area residents.

Elizabeth Armenta received the Citizen of the Year award. Armenta has dedicated 32 years to education, and is currently in her fifth year as principal of Road Runner Elementary School in the Marana Unified School District.

Armenta was chosen for this prestigious award for her commitment to education and youth in the community.

Every year, Elks lodges across the country recognize firefighters and police officers for their dedication to their communities. Once again, Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge honored personnel from the Golder Ranch Fire District and the Oro Valley Police Department.

Cpt. Steve Drury was named Firefighter of the Year for the work he has done as a recruit training officer for academy classes at Golder Ranch Fire District. Colin Ryan was named Paramedic of the Year for his performance at the Jan. 8, 2011 shootings and two serious medical incidents involving young children.

Oro Valley Police Officer Dan Horetski was named Police Officer of the Year for his dedication to youth programs in the community. He is the school resource officer at Canyon Del Oro High School where he acts as counselor and teacher to more than 1,700 students.

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.
