Letters to the editor


Good of country far from Gosar agenda

Our congressman Paul Gosar could not wait for President Obama’s speech on immigration to be over before lashing out in a degrading diatribe against the president and attacking the dignity of undocumented immigrants.

What gives with the weather?

I just heard on the TV news that the northwest portion of New York State received six feet of snow, followed the next day by two feet of snow.

Editor’s goof breaks reader’s heart

In reference to your Friday, Nov. 14, editorial headed “Information banishes fear” where you wrote “we trust the town will air on the side of full disclosure.”

Kaitie’s Closet moves

Kaitie’s Closet has moved. The charity is now at 814 N. Beeline Highway, Suite E, Payson, AZ 85541.

Do our votes really count?

With the proliferation of “dark money” in our elections by wealthy individuals, organizations, special interest groups, and public utility companies, it seems like many of our elections are determined before the ballots are actually cast.

Fishy in the Forest Service

Once again in the Roundup (Nov. 11) Mr. Aleshire outlined the fiasco of 4FRI: Pasco Berliouix helped develop the original 4FRI, his timber company submitted the low bid and kicked in a promise to spend about $500,000 monitoring the environmental impact.

In truth, we’re just lazy

I have been thinking, about the last few weeks of what has taken place. First we had to go and vote. Next we showed our respect to the veterans that gave up their lives to protect our way of life.

Candlelight Walk successful

Time Out held its annual Candlelight Walk Oct. 29, concluding the planned activities for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Thanks for coverage

Thanks to the Roundup for providing great coverage the October jazz performance at the Presbyterian Church.

Ode to Rambo

Today I lost a friend, companion and loved one.

Buy gas out of town

Recently, for a variety of reasons, I took a trip down to the Valley. While I was there, I had to buy gas. I was pleasantly surprised to see the price of $2.73 per gallon.

Gas price complaint

I just returned from a trip to the Grand Canyon. On Oct. 29 the Giant and Maverik gas stations in Flagstaff were selling regular gas for $3.029 a gallon.

Star Valley gripes

Halloween made Scrooge look like some sort of patron saint. We live in Star Valley and really wish we didn’t.

County nurse a great asset to community

My husband and I moved to Payson a little more than five weeks ago from St. Paul, Minn. We are very happy with our decision, by the way.

Just more of the same

Since we seemingly have elected a male clone of Jan Brewer as our next governor, the question that begs for an answer is will things change for the better under Doug Ducey’s leadership?
