Kudos For Getting State Park Open



Kudos to the mayor and town council and John Stanton of the chamber and Ken Volz of Green Valley, for their success in reopening the Tonto Natural Bridge. This looks like a win-win for the Rim Country and the state parks.

Kudos to Lisa Boyle, president and the entire Humane Society for their hard word in bringing to reality a new structure for the homeless dogs and cats in the community. The years of fund-raising and planning hopefully will provide a new state-of-the-art shelter that will be here for years to come.

Kudos to the Payson mayor and town council for their efforts and success in obtaining the $10.6 million stimulus grant to help bring Blue Ridge water to the Payson area. This will secure a solid supply of water for many years to come.

And kudos to the Friends of Payson Parks and Recreation for volunteering to raise funds to keep alive spring and summer programs for our youth. Their efforts are paying off.

These are but a few of the examples of accomplishments that can be achieved when groups in a community come together and work to make their community a better place for all the citizens. The more we work together the more we can accomplish.

Let’s not forget to thank all those in the community who are making it a better place for us to live.
