Letters to the editor


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.

Letter headline misleading

I submitted a letter about the unavailability of various tax forms at the Payson Public Library about 10 days ago. There were a couple of negative comments posted.

Other options for tax forms
