I would like to express my appreciation for Pete Aleshire’s two excellent articles in the April 8 Roundup — The Ghosts of Shoofly and Cottonwood trees.

Optimists say thanks

The Rim Country Optimist Club’s eighth annual Fishing Festival on March 29, was a great success. The Payson Parks and Recreation Depart­ment allowed the use Green Valley Park and helped coordinate the day’s activities. We would like to thank the many individuals and organizations that reached out to help us, as well as the entire community for the great turnout.

Lioness Club says thanks

The Enchanted April afternoon tea and fashion show was fabulous! The community was great in attendance and support.

Angels abound

We have angels among us — no doubt about it. And it’s a good thing too — given the plight of our children.

Pine leads the way

The residents of Pine and Strawberry continue to lead the way when it comes to protecting their community from wildfires.

Contraception pills cause cancer

“The customer is always right.” Obviously the Arizona Corporation Commission has never heard of this concept and could care less about it.

Speak up at water meeting

This is an open letter to Payson Water Company (formerly Brooke Utilities) customers.

Hitler and Alinsky

There were two very good letters in a recent Payson Roundup.

Calling on citizen generosity again

The generosity of Rim Country residents is more and more amazing each year.
