Tucson Arizona Temple Advancements

Much progress has been reported in the construction of the Tucson Arizona Temple. This has rendered it necessary for me to include a full update to my temple construction progress report. As before, this is just a minor change, but I wanted to post it here from home so that I have access to it at work. Thanks for indulging me. Let me know if any of you have any feedback.
