Tom, Rim Country Education Foundation was formed by local citizens as a non- profit entity to help raise funds to assist in bringing a university to Payson. Rim Country Education Alliance was formed by the towns of Payson and Star Valley as a Separate Legal Entity to act as a "town" to protect local residents from any financial liability. They are in fact two separate entities. The Foundation is a private entity and the Alliance is a governmental entity. I think it's unfortunate the names have so much in common which may be confusing to some.

As an aside, the Foundation was formed well before the two towns formed the Alliance.

Every now and then, I comment on this forum to try and clarify a point. Rarely do I give my personal opinion. That is for you all to do. I know one thing from observation inside and outside these organizations, all involved are community minded individuals motivated by one principal goal, trying to make this a better community.

Mary Kastner's term on the board expired at the beginning of the year. She was notified in advance that the issue of her replacement was being placed on the town meeting agenda as, I guess, a courtesy by Vice Mayor Michael Hughes. Mary Kastner sent us a copy of the memo not Michael Hughes. The council will meet and vote tonight. While Su Connell certainly was asked if she would accept the position, as far as we know there has not been a meeting or vote on her appointment. Perhaps the council members will vote to retain Kastner, but I wouldn't count on it.

Ms. Redhead, my comment was directed to Mrs. Randall to clarify that MHA is a board member of the foundation not the alliance. I have known Mrs. Randall for some time now and, the last time I looked, is more than capable of speaking for herself.

Also, before chastising others, I suggest you get your facts correct. Mary Kastner is leaving the board of the Rim Country Educational Alliance as accurately reported in paragraph 1and 2 above, as well as the editorial you referenced.

Mrs. Randall, MHA is not on the board of the Alliance. It is on the board of the Foundation.

Yup, that picture is at the top of this story. You can get fresh brewed beer in glass bottles, called growlers, from just about every craft beer brewer. The closest one is THAT Brewery in Pine and they are a restaurant and bar, as well as brewing beer on premise. I'm sure many things have changed since you owned a bar. This is really nothing new in many places. I remember visiting a military buddy in Indiana in 1970. They would go to their neighborhood bar, fill the jar and take it home.

Mrs. Randall,

There are the same number of places to purchase alcohol as there were before they opened. They bought Rim Liquor's license.

It is not a bar. It is a gas station and convenience store that sells carry out liquor that cannot be opened or consumed on premises... just like Maverick or Circle K.

I can't imagine who you might need to know or who your friends are to open a gas station and convenience store in Payson.
