Don, The US Forest Service has written in the sales agreement that the land will be used for a educational site. “We are finally in a position to honor all the terms and conditions established in the Memorandum of Understanding (with ASU) and are going back to ASU to make sure they’re still willing to go forward under those terms and conditions,” I understand what you are implying but there is no back up plan regardless the number of mmmmmmm's you add.

Pat, what chapter of the real estate license book covers buying US Forest Service land? The last adjective I'd use for the people who have worked tirelessly on this effort for years is stupid.

Please note that it is Voden's attorney that is requesting the delays. If the defense requests delays because they feel they need more time in his defense, Mr. Voden is getting as speedy a trial as is possible by the judicial system.

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.
