Volunteers are needed at this year’s Mathcounts competitions set for Feb. 14 and March 14.

Organizers expect a record number of middle school students to participate in the competitions, which are set up like sporting events aimed at promoting math achievement.

Student “mathletes” train individually and in teams, getting the opportunity to compete in local, state and national events, with prizes awarded at all levels.

The top four students in Arizona will receive a free trip to Orlando, Fla., for the national competition in May. National winners receive college scholarships, and the champion wins a trip to the U.S. Space Camp.

Local volunteers are needed to set up the competition room, handle registration and score tests at both Tucson events, which will be held at Cienega High School, 12775 E. Mary Ann Cleveland Way.

Volunteers should arrive at 8 a.m. if they want to help set up the competition room. Others should arrive by 9 a.m. The competitions will be followed by awards ceremonies, so volunteers should plan to stay through 2:15 p.m.

Breakfast, snacks and lunch will be provided.

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.
