Rita Ranch Automotive & Tire used to be Ventana Automotive. Although the name changed in 2014, much of the same, experienced team still works at the shop. Their dedication to providing top quality service and honest repair can be seen in their positive BBB rating.

While you’re waiting for your car at Rita Ranch Automotive & Tire, they want you to be as comfortable as possible. Sit back and relax in one of the oversized sofas. Pour yourself a cup of hot coffee or tea. 

The Rita Ranch and Vail communities hold a soft spot in the hearts of the team at this local shop. They frequently give back to important causes, such as by sponsoring events with the Cienega Rotary, IMPACT of Southern Arizona and offering discounts to teachers in the Vail School District. Perhaps that’s because the owner and operator, Terry Newman is a long-time Vail resident with a love for this community.

Terry has lived in Vail for over a decade. His four children go to school in the Vail School District. Chances are you’ve seen him around town at the grocery store, convenience store, or on the golf course.

With roots deeply entrenched in Vail and Rita Ranch, the entire team at Rita Ranch Automotive & Tire works tirelessly to give every customer a fantastic experience. To learn more, visit

TMC One is Tucson Medical Center’s affiliated primary-care group with seven offices – and another poised to open to serve the southeast community!

The $11.5 million Rincon Health Campus is a 44,000 square foot medical complex on Houghton Road, just south of Civano at Drexel Road. The campus will host seven new primary care providers for adults and pediatrics to serve the area, as well as an infusion clinic and an imaging center.

And with potential specialty rotations in a host of areas - from OBGYN to orthopaedics, dermatology, cardiology, psychiatry and more - the Health Campus is expected to meet a wide range of needs closer to home for patients in the region.

And beginning after the start of the year, the clinic will also offer expanded and weekend hours to meet the needs of working professionals and busy families.

“TMC has a longstanding relationship with the Southeast region and we’re very much looking forward to meeting our neighbors and better serving the needs of the area,” said Susan Vance, director of TMC One.

Construction on the 22-acre site is wrapping up, with a goal of opening by the end of 2016.

Savvy Copywriters helps small businesses market themselves in fresh new ways.

There’s nothing traditional about the marketing and public relations work done at Savvy Copywriters because traditional doesn’t work anymore. These days, businesses are competing to get customers’ attention with school functions, jobs and, well, life.

The days of trying to steal a customer’s attention with interruption-based advertising are gone. We throw tomatoes at the idea of using brochures and flyers to get in front of consumers. Instead, we help local businesses command attention using inbound marketing techniques, such as content-based SEO, non-braggadocios copywriting and entertaining (yet super effective) social media marketing.

The ultimate goal? To spark consumer interest and bring small businesses to the next level of awesome.

Kimberly Crossland is the owner/operator of Savvy Copywriters where she is backed by a team of highly-talented communicators. While Wishpond described her as a “quirky writer” (which she takes as a compliment), don’t let that fool you. She has also been quoted in Forbes magazine and published on websites, such as Spin Sucks and Small Biz Trends.

On the personal side of things, Kimberly is a Vail resident who has given hours of her time to help this community thrive. Although she loves a good Crossfit workout in her garage or walk around the Vail streets with her pit bull, she has a bigger purpose these days. She is a soon-to-be mom.  While she works hard to live a healthy life, the truth is, the way to her heart is with chocolate.

But above all else, Kimberly is happy. Insanely, over-the-moon happy.
