Now, Mr. Evans, we all know that King Kenny does whatever he wants, and if he wants to speak for DCK, that is what he is going to do. Wouldn't be surprised in the least to learn, at a later date, of course, that Kenny has a major ve$ted intere$t in this project...just my opinion!!
Just a heads up: A few weeks ago, my husband received a call which when he answered was simply a recording saying that it was from the IRS and he needed to call them at a designated number. Now, the initial call came from a number in the 202 area code, which is Washington, D.C. and the number which he was supposed to call was also a 202 area code, which added a level of legitimacy. He called them and immediately the call was answered (suspicious in itself), by someone simply identifying themself as "Agent So and so". This "Agent" told my husband that he owed thousands of dollars to the IRS and he needed to provide them with his account number or he would be subject to years of imprisonment, a ruined life and millions of dollars in fines and penalties. As I handle our finances, hubby was perplexed and called me to him. I told him to hang up the phone immediately and not say another word to them. I knew that we owed nothing to the IRS and that this was a scam, however, hubby was concerned, so we checked with our Accountant and he laughed. Also checked on-line for the IRS phone number. They have a fraud alert line, so called them and they were already aware of this scam.
I later learned that this is a well planned and executed scam, that has cost Arizonan's alone, in the millions of dollars. A couple of "red flags", they never asked for a social security number, we never received anything in the mail, the phone was answered immediately upon call back, they called hubby's cell phone, and they pushed very hard for an account number. So, if you ever receive a phone call from the "IRS" don't panic, and do NOT provide them with any financial information. I was told that the IRS will ALWAYS contact you by mail first. Don't get scammed.
Call me a conspiracy theorist, if you will, however, I firmly believe that our esteemed Mayor has had a plan all along, and all of his machinations and manipulations are finally coming out to the light of day. Furthermore, anybody with an ounce of brains in their head knows that none of this will be good for the average resident of Payson. Not in the long run.
Oh, I would either be chasing that armored truck down or calling the armored truck company, to turn it in.
I would never be able to keep it. Couldn't live with myself!!
I go to the Valley at least once or twice a week, and consistently the gas is at least 15 cents per gallon cheaper, and more often it is at least 20 to 30 cents per gallon cheaper. We just got back from Oklahoma, where gas was $2.91 per gallon! This was after I had paid $3.69 in Payson, the day before.
When I know that I will be going down the hill, I always try to only buy enough gas here to get me down there.
As for the whole, "Remember there is hauling cost to bring the gas up here in tankers." that is a load of hooey!!! The only place that I know of gas being more expensive is in California. Regardless, where it goes, the gas must be hauled in tankers, and it most certainly does not cost anywhere from a few pennies to nearly a dollar per gallon more to haul it.
The fuel station owners here in Payson know that they have a captive audience here, therefore they take advantage. I absolutely do not have the slightest problem with a business owner trying to make a profit, I just don't think it is fair for them to try and make the entire day's profit from one sale
Tom, in the interest of full disclosure, I practically live in flip flops. Wear them as often as possible right up until the first snow. My parents used to call me their little hippie, as I detested shoes and slipped them off whenever I could. Flip flops are a reasonable alternative to being bare footed. That being said, I will also say that I do not wear the stupid looking cheap rubber ones.
In my opinion, those people who trip and fall over their flip flops, or the man who got his tangled up in his car pedals, are blaming their clumsiness on their shoes rather than where it squarely belongs.
I drive, walk, dance, run, in my flippies and have never tripped on them, fallen down or gotten them tangled in my car pedals.
It is absolutely ridiculous!! Last week, I paid as low as $2.91 per gallon in Oklahoma City. Heading east, the price goes down exponentially.
I agree...I try to buy local, but sometimes, one has to have a sense of self preservation over local loyalty, this is one of those times.
Excellent decision!! That is a very difficult intersection to enter and get through! Now, to remember that it is there!!!
Mr. Rhea, do you really think that the paper would have removed the aforementioned letter and published the written apology to Ms. Brown had they not been provided with incontrovertible proof that the letter writers insinuations were inaccurate?
Ah Will, Will, Will, no need for me to see to anything. NOBODY knows the whole truth but the parties involved, and your childish sneering innuendoes serve nobody! Least of all yourself. You just make yourself look pathetic for beating on two people who absolutely do not deserve your snide comments. However, I do know that, as you put it, a little simple digging will prove the fact that you are totally and completely without a clue regarding these two amazing and honorable people!! Like I said, instead of sitting on your duff and trying to stir up the rhetoric, get involved and be a productive citizen.
