Editor: We have a rare opportunity to get better, much better representation for our Rim Country
Editor: I will have voted in 13 presidential elections come this November. I have cast my ballots for some wonderful candidates and for some woeful ones.
Editor: Both our United States government and our Arizona state government are run by children. They don’t/won’t cooperate or compromise, their agendas are self-serving, and their two main objectives are as follows:
Editor: My car broke down (recently) on Arizona State Highway 87 near Sunflower around noon. I was assisted by Officer Seth Meeske.
Editor: I suspect that most adults think of the brouhaha that is going on in politics as something that has nothing much to do with our children.
Editor: Just a note of thanks and appreciation to our town’s park employees. Green Valley Park is the jewel of this town and our Parks Department employees make it sparkle year-round.
Editor: Letting the state take control of federal lands would be a disaster. Note that the state wildland fire near Wickenburg killed 18 firefighters and destroyed numerous homes and businesses.
Editor: If Gila Community College is concerned about enrollment, why did it schedule its summer semester to start two weeks before graduation at the high school? That locked the graduating seniors out of taking summer courses at the college. Carol Stanton
Editor: I am writing to congratulate your paper on the July 26th story — “Prosecutors say shooting was self-defense” — by Alexis Bechman which appeared in that edition of the Payson Roundup.
Editor: While attending the book fair Saturday, July 23 at GCC, I was given a complimentary copy of the Roundup.
Editor: All newspapers tread a fine line between boosterism and journalism. During the six years that it has reported on Payson’s efforts to bring an ASU campus to town, the Roundup has repeatedly crossed that line.
Editor: I, along with many others, believe everyone running for Payson mayor or town council should reveal their national party affiliation. Remember what happened when tea partiers got elected to our school board? I do. Deb Paulk
Our Humor Me Theater Troupe has produced and staged melodramas, improv, The Hometown Country Radio Show and family comedy for all of Rim Country, performing for the schools, churches and we even put on the 125th Payson Anniversary Melodrama for the city.
Thank you DJ Craig and Peter Aleshire for the lovely picture of the Milky Way and article about our starry home.
I love roundabouts. The intersection in Payson that screams for a roundabout is McLane and Longhorn.
