Governor Jan Brewer today was honored by American Mothers, Inc. (AMI), with the “Mother of Accomplishment in Government” Award.

The non-profit organization, whose mission is to promote the important role of motherhood through educational and community outreach, recognized the Governor for her “worthy contribution to her family, home and outstanding service to her community.”

“To meet such a strong, inspirational group of mothers today was an honor in and of itself,” said Governor Brewer. “To then be recognized and awarded by these same women was icing on the cake. I am appreciative of the work American Mothers, Inc., does across the country to empower women and strengthen the American family. I’ve always said serving as Governor has been the honor of my life, second only to my most cherished role: Mother."

AMI began as an idea to heal the damage done to American families as a result of the Civil War. That idea grew into a national observance now known as Mother’s Day, for which AMI is the official sponsor.

The group was officially organized in 1950 as a division of the Golden Rule Foundation. It became an independent, non-profit organization in 1954. Since then, AMI has annually named a remarkable Mother of the Year from nominees among the 50 states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

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.
