What's Up?


Q: With this rodeo and others, there is a truck that travels around town towing a jail-like trailer with people inside -- isn't that against the law?

A: Lt. Don Engler of the Payson Police Department said the traffic code, Title 28, has no law prohibiting people from riding in a trailer in tow. He said the code defines a "trailer" as a "vehicle that is ... designed for carrying persons or property and for being drawn by a motor vehicle ..."

Q: Awhile back a friend and I were at the Sawmill Theatre and were forced by the staff to allow our purses to be searched for "outside food" -- is this a formal policy? If so, why aren't men/boys forced to empty their pockets?

A: Craig Triphahn, manager of the Sawmill Theatre, said searching purses is not a policy he has used since taking over operation of the multi-plex on July 4.
