Terrible delays at VA

My husband is a Vietnam vet who served in the Navy. He was going to the VA in Los Angeles, Calif., which was the biggest joke ever!

Soroptimists say thanks

Members of Soroptimist International of Zane Grey Country thank all the people in our community who continue to support our See’s Candy fundraiser.

Lawmakers thwart voters

In November of 2000, Arizona citizens passed Prop. 301 which allowed a .6 percent increase in the sales tax to be directed to schools to offset rising costs.

School gag order failed

I was happy to hear that SB 1172 did not pass in spite of support by both Sylvia Allen and Bob Thorpe.

Governor duplicitous

“Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas ran mostly on a platform calling for the repeal of Common Core standards.” (“Common Core survives in Arizona,” Roundup, April 7.)

Wait time

Viewing a clip on News 12 today about the average “wait time” for U.S. veterans in need of urgent care is 30 days.

Free exercise of religion

This is in response to an earlier letter to the editor, rejoicing that the veto of SB 1062 has “spared Arizona from being the national laughing stock.”

Barton plays for herself

When a sports team’s featured player only plays for themselves and does nothing for the team, it usually means that player is replaced.

Water department policy

I have a real issue with the Payson Water Department.

Legislature needs to butt out of citizens’ private lives

The governor has just signed a law that represents yet another example of government interference in the private lives of its citizens. However, this time it is our own Arizona state government.

Opinion about guns

My letter about (Senator) Sylvia Allen has resulted in some critical remarks indicating my lack of understanding of the “separation of church and state” or the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Help Rotary help others

I have the honor being the president of the Payson Rotary Club (aka – the afternoon club), and being involved in many local projects that our club has been providing for over 50 years.

Need help with PHS Grad Night celebration

On behalf of the Payson High School Grad Night Committee, I would like to thank Sawmill Theatres in Payson for supporting our Grad Night fundraising efforts by showing the movie “Cinderella” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 28 for the public at a discounted rate.

Scales is in someone’s pocket

Someone has Judge Gary “Delay” Scales in their hip pocket. Time for Attorney General Mark Brnovich to investigate Judge Scales’ competence of being a judge.

Thank you former governor

Thank you Gov. Brewer for sparing Arizona from being the national laughingstock again by vetoing SB 1062 last year. The recent events in Indiana and Arkansas has proven you correct.
