Letters to the editor


University cuts so sad

Our Legislature passed a budget in record time and the new governor signed it quickly. As someone once said, “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it.”

Money for radar, not schools

The Payson Roundup reported that “The governor’s office provided funding to purchase radar units” ... for sheriff’s deputies.

Help find missing dog

My mother and father are from Rhode Island and were out visiting my brother who now lives in Scottsdale.

Kids need our help

Payson Community Kids (PCK) is a nonprofit organization formed to help youngsters who need and want assistance with their educational and socialization skills.

Beware global warming deniers

The key position in Mr. Wescott’s letter to the editor (4/24/2015) “Thoughts on climate change” is:

He deserved what he got

What ever happened to due diligence in reporting?

Making up issues

Ballot fraud in Arizona is practically non-existent, but Senator Sylvia Allen was intent on supporting SB 1340 as if ballot fraud was rampant in our state. Cooler heads prevailed and the bill did not pass.

Thanks for the support

On behalf of the Northern Gila County Historical Society, Inc., I would like to thank Carol Zebb, Roundup columnist, for her recent article about her visit to the Zane Grey Cabin with her guest.

Lawmakers block recycling

We celebrate Earth Day in April to demonstrate support for maintaining a healthy environment.

Responsible to our children

Come, let us reason together. The old biblical admonishment still stands, but is little recognized or applied today.

Thoughts on climate change

Let’s consider what knowledgeable climate change alarmists and climate change skeptics both believe to be true.

College plan an embarrassment

It has become very clear that the idea of an institution of higher education is now a mess of fragmented notions that will not attract 600 students to Payson much less 6,000.

Giving up on VA

Thank you for publishing my letter “Wait time” (April 14). Most likely due to my frustrations of time, I was misquoted due to my penmanship! I meant ERA not EPA; 1 out of 1600; 200 to 300 veterans; 1968-1971. Sorry I confused the typist.

Return of the swallows

Spring is here and the swallows are returned to Green Valley Park.

Lawmakers irresponsible

Astute readers who understand the impact of the governor’s onslaught against public education must be quite startled by the incredible cuts imposed against the education of children in our local communities.
