Around 8:30 a.m. on March 23, Marana Police Department (MPD) responded to a home near Cortaro and I-10 in reference an unknown problem call. The officers ultimately arrested 23 year-old Cody William Clark for criminal damage.
The morning was unusually quiet.
The story of Karen and Mark Klay should be the story of their art. It should be a story of a married couple who collaborate to create works of art and have carved out a career doing so. Instead, their tale is a cautionary tale. It is a tale of survival and a fight with an aggressive form of cancer.

The question is whether the taxpayers of Pima County wish to incur more debt for these projects versus focusing on the most critical need facing our community-our failing roads.
Tucson has met itself several times over. Now Oro Valley has done the same.
Marana has a lake for now and there is a very real possibility it may remain. To be technical about it, the area being nicknamed “Lake Marana” is a former borrow pit from the construction of I-10 at the north end of Continental Ranch that has filled with water, forming a lake of sorts. The lake has attracted a large number of birds to the area, but there have also been issues with residents complaining about the smell and insects coming from the water.
