What's Up?


Q: I heard there was a stabbing on Frontier Street early Wednesday morning. Do you know anything about it?

A: Police were originally investigating a domestic disturbance as a stabbing, in which one man's arm was severely cut. A second man also was injured, with lacerations and contusions on his face. That man was arrested on charges of assault and aggravated domestic violence, and was released from jail later that day.

Upon further investigation, police discovered that the man with the cut was actually injured as he tried to crawl through a broken window.

Further charges may be pending.

Q: The flashing yellow lights at the three elementary schools and Rim Country Middle School are installed but not flashing during school hours. Why?

A: The lights are not operated or maintained by the school district, but rather by the town of Payson. According to Payson Police Sgt. Tom Tieman, the speed limit when the lights are flashing is 15 mph. When they are not flashing, it is 25 mph. An internal computer system times when the lights will flash. Typical hours are 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., 10:50 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. and 1:55 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
