Payson High School guidance counselor and coach Don Heizer is at it again.
Only weeks ago, he was spewing superlatives that he hoped would entice fans to attend a benefit steak dinner for the PHS wrestlerettes.
This week, Heizer is touting a steak dinner that will benefit student government at the high school. It runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Rim Country Middle School cafeteria where STUGO is hosting a steak dinner. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children.
"Where else can you get an 8 to 10 ounce sirloin, baked potato, killer beans, salad, bread, drink and great fellowship for a price like this," he said.
As if that weren't enough motivation from Heizer, he asked to "come join the fun, have a great meal and then walk up the field and support the 2003 edition of the Longhorn football team in its (7 p.m.) homecoming game against Pinnacle."
Gee, Coach, your tactics are dramatic and appealing as ever.
Credit for Kids tonight
Fans wishing to participate in the Credit for Kids tax program will have the opportunity to do so at tonight's homecoming game.
School officials will have several stations set up where taxpayers can complete the forms necessary to participate in the tax program.
Credit for Kids allows single taxpayers the option of contributing up to $200 of their tax money to the local school district. Married taxpayers are allowed to contribute up to $250 of their tax money. The taxpayers have the option of designating where they want their donation to be used.
Payson High School athletic director Dave Bradley is asking taxpayers to direct their contributions toward completion of the stadium project.
To finish the stadium, which includes seating for about 2,000 spectators on the north side of the football field, about $160,000 is needed. If enough Credit for Kids donations are ear-marked for the stadium, it could be completed next summer.
