What's Up?


Q: Why are Payson High School freshmen going to have to remain on campus for lunch next school year?

A: "Some of the decisions are in your best interests (although you may not see it). We have found that it is most difficult for freshmen because they don't have self control yet. This is what we've found from years of research into behavior," PHS Principal Roy Sandoval said while speaking to visiting eighth-graders. He gave them five seconds to whine about the closed campus.

Q: What are the exact dates, month, day and year, of Payson's founding and incorporation?

A: According to Payson Town Manager Fred Carpenter, the official dates on the record books are listed as: Founded -- March 3, 1884; incorporated -- Dec 3, 1973.
