Their flags unfurl and fill the air
We’ve got a bad feeling about this, Toto. At tonight’s Payson School Board meeting, Superintendent of Schools Ron Hitchcock will submit his resignation, which will take effect at the end of the school year in June.

Nancy Pelosi is attacking the Navajo nation with a fury not seen for over a century. She and her Democrat Party allies have set their sights on the economic and social destruction of the Navajo nation.
I express my thanks to all that made it possible to have the Merchant Marine plaque placed at the Payson Veterans Memorial. This Veterans Day ceremony we will remember the bravery and sacrifices of the mariners of World War II and other wars.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, some members of the committee recently formed to “Recall PSWID Board” will be collecting signatures for their petitions. Location is the ramada across from the post office in Pine. Time is from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
How soon they forget. For a time, the tragic deaths of 19 heroic firefighters in the 2,000-degree flames of the Yarnell Hill Fire captured the attention of the nation — even Congress. But hey, that was months ago. Time to move on.
