Letters to the editor


Cartoon offensive

Editor: The editorial cartoon “Voters Have a Choice” published in today’s Payson Roundup (Nov. 1) is absolutely offensive and appalling.

Not enough religion?

Editor: “We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.”

The drones have arrived

Editor: I am curious if others have seen drones operating in the Payson area. I have seen several, one was directly above the Beeline Highway right in town.

Helping children

Editor: The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program of Gila County would like to thank the Payson Roundup for their support.

Thank you for a Dog's Day Out

Editor: Pets and their people had great fun at A Dog’s Day Out recently at Pet Club in Payson. There were demonstrations and vendors and loads of giveaways.

Families in our prayers

Editor: I live by the high school, it was heard and felt, instantly was seeing photos and posts on Facebook about the happenings, very sad, however so happy the news channels are sharing links on how to help the families affected!

Fossil Creek solution

Editor: Having served with the sheriff’s office for eight years, plus many decades wandering around Rim Country, I am aware of innumerable swimming locations, which are much easier to drive/walk to without much of an effort.

The forgotten war

Editor: This message is in regards to the Korean War, which is seldom mentioned in the press or on TV.

Supports McCain

Editor: I am not a citizen of Arizona, but the current electoral situation in our country is of such a serious concern to me that I am forced to write this letter. It is not intended as a political endorsement for any other office than that of Arizona senator.

Not voting for Hillary

Editor: A letter writer argues, “It’s time for a change” (Roundup, Oct. 25) and “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.” As long as the subject is not the stock market, the letter writer might be right, most of the time.

Cattlegrowers' event

Editor: The Gila County Cattle Growers Association invites the public to join in to kick off the holiday season Saturday, Nov. 19, with our Annual Holiday Dinner-Dance and Gift Auction at the Gila County Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall.

You have a choice to make

Editor: Even if you chose not to decide you still have made a choice! Do you care about the environment? Do you care about your friends and family?

Disagree with message Hennings sent students

Editor: I have taken some time to think about your article and looked at Mr. Henning website. While he has the right to educate whomever he wants about whatever he wants, I also have the right to disagree with people who subscribe to his way of thinking.

Meat industry is scary

Editor: I (had) no fear of all the goblins, the witches, or even the evil clowns lurking on Halloween. What really scares me are the latest reports about the meat industry.

Effects of Agent Orange

Editor: Re: Tuesday, Sept. 20 guest commentary by Kevin Hamilton – “Well-kept secrets.” He is correct. There are many, many secrets kept by the VA, one of them affects me.
