What's Up?


Q: Is there any place in town that will pump gas for seniors?

A: While every station in the Rim country has gone self-serve, most are willing to pump gas for those who need assistance.

"It's not a service we offer anymore, but it's something we've always done," said Francis Collins, manager of the Texaco station at 910 S. Beeline Highway. "If people will call and let us know they need assistance, or just let us know when they get here, we will be glad to help them. They might have to wait a couple minutes, but we'll help them."

So will the other two stations we checked the Giant station on Highway 260 and Uncle Tom's Texaco in Pine.

Q: I am a published author who is interested in the humanities. How does one get to serve on the board at the Payson Public Library?

A: The library does not have a board.

"We are governed by the town, said director Terry Morris. I answer to the town council and town manager.

But Library Friends of Payson, which raised the money to furnish the new library and purchase some new books is always looking for members.

Call Library Friends president Mary Nolan at 472-4544 for more information.

Incidentally, an open house will be held at the new library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12. Doors open for good at 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14.

Call 474-5251, ext. 147, to reach Roundup's What's Up? line. Leave your question on the answering machine and we'll try to find the answer.
