I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Rodeo Parade.
I have said for years the only way to have true and effective campaign finance reform is not to limit the contributions, but to limit the spending.
Why do we have to answer questions to continue reading the online paper?
According to the “Moment of truth” article in Friday’s paper, the citizens of the town of Payson are suddenly at the mercy of the Rim Country Educational Alliance (SLE) and ASU for the location of a potential campus in Payson.
In regards to the Rim Country Educational Alliance and ASU being so close to selecting a site and actually starting to build a satellite ASU campus in Payson — hooray to Steve Drury and the Alliance. They have worked long and hard to to keep this project going.

A remarkable contrast appeared in the Aug. 15 Roundup.
The vote taken by one of the Payson School Board members in denying our less fortunate school children food is certainly deplorable.

It is extremely important that all Democrats, Independents and Republicans vote for Home Rule in the primary election.

To the Payson public — I would like to take this time to let you know of the wonderful service that is available for all of Payson plus the outlying area.
All of us at one time have been connected to an operator in a foreign country. They speak very little English and they are impossible to understand.
I greatly enjoyed your article on the history of humans in the Rim Country.
