Campaign of misinformation

Editor: The latest misinformation being posted by opponents of Prop. 205 is that it would make it legal to drive while under the influence of marijuana.

No on Proposition 205

Editor: Before we decide on the merits of allowing small amounts of marijuana to be legally sold in Arizona, it might be wise to review others’ past history.

Support the Payson Senior Center

Editor: My husband and I have had the privilege of living part time in Payson for the last 10 years. Recently this past spring I was able to relocate here full time.

Election poem

It's time for a change

tion has turned into a boxing match to the point that the candidates have blocked all chances of giving us any plans to address the serious issues we are facing today. So you need to do your own due diligence. Research your candidate!

Why no mention of 3rd party candidates?

Editor: Once again the Roundup has demonstrated why concerned citizens in Payson and indeed all around the country are in record numbers, losing even more faith in the established media.

Mindless sensationalism

Editor: I swear this newspaper gets dumber every day. This poor guy Henning goes around trying to actually do something about the sex abuse of girls and he is vilified for not doing or saying enough.

To my Furry Friends family

Editor: Thank you to Terry, Liz, Dani, Susan and Angie. Thank you to all the wonderful customers and furry guests of Furry Friends.

Attacking Trump signs

Editor: To paraphrase a letter in Oct. 18 letters, “Do you wonder why there are more Trump signs in Payson than Hillary Clinton signs (other than perhaps there are more Trump supporters: my comment)? Well, for several weeks now the (Trump) signs have been disappearing.

Mayor endorses McCain

Editor: I have always chosen to support candidates, not parties. This year, choosing a candidate to send to represent Arizona in the United States Senate is easy.

What is the cost of being wrong?

Editor: I read the letter to the editor from Bob Hugeri entitled “Editor should be ashamed” and the editor’s reply, and thought about something I learned taking a course on operations research years ago as part of my Ph.D. studies.

Cracking down on hunters

Editor: The comments by Mr. Mel Melvis regarding unprepared hunters elicited a memory. Lately returned from WWII, I was relaxing on a cliff top in the Wasatch Range in Utah enjoying a sandwich and watching a mother doe and two fawns cropping in a meadow about 60 yards below.

Vote against Prop. 205

Editor: The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States, asserts that one of the roles of government is to “promote the general welfare.”

A kind gesture

Editor: This past Saturday, my wife and I were in the Home Depot parking lot attempting to load a couple of large, heavy items into our vehicle.

Good care from the VA

Editor: I am writing this in defense of VA hospitals in general. The VA hospital in Phoenix is the exception not the rule based on my experience.
