    This story is so heartwarming. Without mentioning the role of religious conviction in the decision to take these children into a good and loving home, the Grimes' family demonstrated the abounding love of God.
    Selfless acts of kindness are worth more than a thousand sermons. There is one of numerous favorite verses of scripture which I feel applies to this story: From the epistle of James: chapter 1 vs 27: " Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this; To visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."
    We can speak all day about our Christian faith, but without some evidence, some fruit, some indication that our faith is real, we have a worthless witness or testament. Acts as the one shown by the Grimes' family reflect a practical and real Christianity, and I salute them.

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.
