Tim Bee, the Republican challenger in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District, is meeting with key staff at Casa de la Luz Hospice in the Northwest on Friday, Aug. 8, at 10 a.m.

The briefing is “part of Casa de la Luz’s ongoing advocacy efforts to communicate with state and local officials and their staffs to educate them about hospice … and to advocate licensure for residential hospice homes in Tucson,” a release said.

Casa de la Luz currently owns and operates Kanmar Place, the lone residential hospice home in Tucson.

“As Medicare faces mounting budgetary pressures and questions about its future solvency, it is important to help political leaders understand the benefits of hospice,” the release continued.

Previous briefings have been held for U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva of the 7th Congressional District, Pima Country Supervisor Ann Day, staff members of the offices of U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl, and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the Democratic incumbent in the 8th District.

They toured either Casa’s inpatient unit or Kanmar Place.

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.
