Lightning-caused fires burn atop the Rim July 29, 2016
Tom, Your love for Lolly is so inspiring. She is blessed to have you in her life, as are you to have her. God bless you both and give you many more years of love.
I can only hope that the good people of Whispering Pines have been following the saga of the Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District. Perhaps they can learn from their mistakes and avoid the drama that has been almost constant since the inception of the PSWID. And for those of you wanting to serve on a water or fire district board, always remember, "No good deed goes unpunished"!
I guess I'm different from some of you posting here. The robo calls don't really bother me much. In fact, I find the questions they ask interesting. When I get a live person on the phone, I remind myself that everyone has to earn a living and the person calling may very well have been out of work and took a job like that out of desperation.
But the calls that make me crazy mad are the Arizona companies that use out-of-state marketing companies to do their dirty work. Last weekend I had a call from a marketing firm and the caller wanted to know how satisfied I was with my service from Arizona Public Service. I was ready to answer their questions, but as the call progressed, the questions were so inane that I almost hung up. Two of the most idiotic questions were: "Does APS sell you "good" electricity or "bad" electricity?" The other was: "If a friend or relative moved in to your neighborhood, who would you advise them to purchase their electric power from?" When I answered "Ed's Power and Light", the caller asked me to clarify the spelling! This marketing firm was in Michigan. Then on Monday, here at my office, a call from a solicitor selling ads in a directory that listed assisted living facilities and nursing homes. When I asked how many facilities in Payson were advertising in their publicitation, the gentleman on the phone asked "Is Payson spelled with a "P?". He was calling from Florida. That did it for me. If a business makes their living in Arizona and they don't use an Arizona company for their marketing, they'd better not call ME!
The term "teabagger" is vulgar and offensive. Before you use a term like that, I suggest you research the meaning. I'm sure you can do better than that.
Another good reason to de-fund PBS and NPR.
Thank you, Tom! I can remember when the new tax was on the ballot, and all the advertising promoting it. They said "It's only a penny!" and "It's only temporary!"and we were bamboozled into that line of &$%@#. Well, there's a heck of a lot of difference between "just a penny" and reality, especially if you're making a major purchase like a car. I also intend to vote "No" on Proposition 204!
John, I guess you don't get my sense of humor...it was all said in jest! I probably laugh more than anyone you will ever meet and sometimes I'm misunderstood. So sorry I offended you!
I never thought I'd see this blog rise to such a high level of sophistication, let alone the mature and civil discourse between the gentlemen posters. I think you guys need to get out more!
Hi Gary! We are always hiring at Rim Country Health. We are a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, located at 807 West Longhorn, just west of Payson High School. We frequently have openings in our Dietary and Housekeeping departments. Stop by and pick up an employment application from our receptionist at the front desk and say hi while you're here! Good luck!
Congratulations Governor Walker! Now, THAT'S what I call "Hope and Change"!
