The U.S. Attorney’s Office has conferred two awards upon the Pima County Attorney’s Office through its Law Enforcement Coordinating Council.

County Attorney Barbara LaWall has received the “ethical leadership award” for “exemplifying the highest ideals of the criminal justice profession,” a release said.

The Greenwell/Owens Criminal Enterprise Strategic Prosecution Group has received the “excellence in cooperative law enforcement award.” Members of that multi-agency group include deputy county attorneys Richard Wintory and Chris Ward, legal assistant Tari Parish, legal support Frank Robles and legal support Elisa Yslava.

Investigators from the Tucson Police Department and the Pima County Sheriff’s Department are also part of the Greenwell/Owens Group, which has “developed and carried out a new strategy to expose drug traffickers and their criminal associates to far greater and well-deserved criminal penalties,” the release said.

From 2003 to 2005, it netted 39 arrests and indictments, and by 2008 had felony convictions against nearly every defendant.

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.
