   City of Tempe -- Evelyn Hallman Pond
   the numbers are:  14  2  1  2  1  13  5  1  30

   the math is:  30 - 14 - 13 = 2 * (5 - 2) - 1 - 1 - 1

   rsPiEval:
      (14 + 13 - 5) / (((30 / (1 + 1 + 1)) / 2) + 2) = 22/7

   observe...
      22/7 = 3.14285714
      Pi = 3.14159265
      22/7 rounded to nearest hundredth is 3.14
      Pi rounded to nearest hundredth is 3.14
      
   rsPhiEval:  
      (1 + 1 + 1) / (2 * (30 - 14 - 13)) + sqrt(5) / 2 = Phi

   observe...
      Phi = 1.61803399 

   rsAgeEval:  30 + 14 + 13 + 2 - 2 + 1 - 1 - 5 - 1 = 51
   * TempeHiker was 51 years young when he found this sign.

   rs42Eval:  30 + (5 * 2) + (14 - 13) + 1 + 1 + 1 - 2 = 42
   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   [solve for 'n']  30 - 14 - 13 = 2 * (5 - 2) - n - n - n

   [solve for 'n']  30 - 14 - 13 = n * (5 - n) - 1 - 1 - 1

Note: Evelyn Hallman is the mother of Tempe mayor Hugh Hallman.
