Harsh language merited

Editor: Back in 1993, I read in a national news magazine about President Bill Clinton’s appointments to various posts in his administration.

Another day care option

Editor: This is response to a recent article about local preschools in the Payson area. The article failed to include the preschool at the Nazarene Church on Tyler Parkway.

Focus on Old Town Payson

Editor: This letter is about Old Town Payson. When pioneers moved here in the 1880s, they mined, ranched and logged the huge trees.

Why oppose health care?

Editor: Once again, I have been wrongly accused of wanting the public to pay for my wife’s insurance by someone apparently unable to comprehend my simple message.

Editor: It’s now the political scary season! We were out of town for a week, and I am looking at six large, full-color cards lying about Paul Gosar’s record that were in my mailbox when I got home!

Editor: August Rodeo is one of the best weekends for Payson to make a great impression  and bring more business to the local community.

Connect Main Street

Editor: Some time back, there was an article that mentioned, putting a roundabout at the casino and event center intersection.

College will never open

Editor: In the past several weeks, there have been quite a few comments on Facebook, and other social media, about the college coming to town. There will never be a college in Payson — at least not during my lifetime. There are several reasons why I make this statement.
