Combining Slider and SetterBar in Manipulate

I am looking for a solution to what should be a common and simple
problem. I have a slider to control time, but I also want to use a
SetterBar to pick out some interesting dates. The bare bones of my
current attempt is:

Block[{someData},
Manipulate[
ListLinePlot[someData[[tinx,2;;]]],
{{tinx,1,"Time"},1,25,1},
{{qt,7,"Special"},{7->"Rising",5->"Smile",20->"Saws",12-
>"Falling"},ControlType->SetterBar},
Pane[Text@Dynamic[tinx]],
ControlPlacement->Top,
Initialization:>(
someData=Table[Sin[i j]*Cos[j]//N,{i,25},{j,12}];
tinx=1)
]
]

Ideally, none of the setter buttons would be selected if the time was
not one of the special ones.  Clicking on one of the setter buttons
would set the time to that value.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
