Several years ago I questioned the feasibility of creating our own county north of the Salt River and Roosevelt Lake.
This was when our college board decimated what Doyle Coffee and many others had worked many years to build. Now we are in somewhat the same position with the county facility.
I think it's time for the tail to stop wagging the dog. If half the effort would go to creating a new county, that has gone into all of these other complaints and solutions, I think this could be done.
We have enough smart people that know the procedures, right here in Payson to get it done.
