Oro Valley: On Saturday, Nov. 16, at about 5:43 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a report of a domestic dispute at an apartment at 8851 N. Oracle Road. The caller told police that his 23-year-old son was trying to assault him and was breaking things within the apartment. The son told police he was upset at his parents because they were “evil and used sorcery on him.” He did admit to throwing several items during the argument, which he said never turned physical. The son was arrested for domestic violence disorderly conduct and booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

On Thursday, Nov. 14, at about 5:33 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the area of Oracle Road and Suffolk Drive in response to a domestic dispute between a man and a woman going on within a car, the call said the woman was trying to leave the car. As she did, the man would pull her back in and was beating her. Police reached the area, but were unable to find a car matching the description.

On Monday, Nov. 4, at about 2:39 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Sports Clips at 1880 E. Tangerine Road after getting a report of vandalism. An employee told police that sometime during the previous night while she was closing the store, someone had thrown wet marshmallows all over the sidewalk in front of the store and onto the storefront’s windows. While locking the front door, the woman stepped on one and it stuck to her shoe and that is when she realized the store had been vandalized. The owner told the employee to have the incident documented but the employee did not want to be a victim. There were no video cameras in the area and the building maintenance crew had already cleaned up the marshmallows during the night.

On Friday, Nov. 8 at about 5 p.m., she noticed the barbwire fence resting on the ground and the latch was turned inward making it look like someone had tried to force open the gate. A maintenance employee said the two hinges on the gate and barbwire would need to be replaced. The cost for replacing the items totaled $120.

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.
