Nothing but potholes now

Twelve years ago when we explored Payson as a possible place to retire from the stress of larger cities, pollution and crowded streets, we were very impressed.

On Friday, April 1, 2016, I went shopping at our Payson Safeway. When I walked in, I noticed there were many people waiting at the checkout area.

Errors in story

Watch out for speed trap

I’m probably gonna regret this but: If you have friends or family traveling the Beeline, please advise them of the speed trap between milepost 235 and 240, just south of Rye.

What actually happened ...

Appreciate wonderful community support

On behalf of the Payson Lioness Club I wish to thank the following persons who assisted and supported our recent Enchanted April Tea & Fashion Show event on Saturday, April 2, at the  Payson Methodist Church.

Nothing to do in Payson?
