If your teens like to dance, Marana Parks and Recreation is hosting a teen dance from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow at Crossroads at Silverbell District Park, 7548 N. Silverbell Road.
Teens dance during Marana Parks and Recreation's teen dance. Last Friday's event was for 12- to 17-year-olds and featured music by Sound Express and refreshments by the Marana Marlins Swim team at Crossroads at Silverbell Park.

When the lights go out, the dance - and the dancers - take on a magical hue.
Thousands of people each day drive past the foreboding brown and
gray smokestacks of the CalPortland Co. - formerly Arizona Portland
Cement Co. - on the west side of Interstate 10, just south of West
A water truck approaches the 225-foot kiln. Dust control is a
major pastime at the cement plant. "You're building a powder, and
it's very hard to contain it," said production control supervisor
William White, who has worked at the plant since 2000.
Larry Duke watches as Tammy Haley uses a special visor to look
into the kiln's burner pipe, where rock - called "clinker" - is
being tossed around at about 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Marana's Parks and Recreation Department on Saturday will
showcase its new partnership with the Ironwood Forest National
Monument, which is putting on a "Get Outside With Your Kids" event
at parks and rec headquarters.

The town of Marana is offering Boy Scouts plenty of chances to
"do a good deed daily" - and work toward their Eagle Scout awards
in the process.
