I have been following the YMCA controversy for the last several weeks and just had to put in a good word in favor of the YMCA.
I have belonged to the Y for many years, and I can't say enough about the benefits of this organization. They have a program to suit every "body." One of the main benefits for me is being able to join a Y in one place and be able to use YMCAs across the country when traveling. I have been in probably 100 Ysrom Bangor, Maine to Seattle, Wash. to Homestead, Fla., and they are excellent without exception. I can't imagine why people aren't jumping for joy overaving a YMCA in Payson. There are many cities that don't have this golden opportunity.
