Mr. Evans: I'm curious to know what business, organization or other entity should have sponsored a candidate debate? How would they have paid for the venue for a debate, the publicity to promote it, the liability insurance and other associated costs? Who would you have chosen for a moderator?

Almost Shakespearean? Like "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"? Biblical? As in "For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap"? Yep. You nailed it this time, Pete!

The end result of the negative campaign signs: 1. They created increased name recognition for the candidates opposing the incumbents. 2. They created community-wide animosity and negativity for HPR . 3. They negated the necessity of purchasing advertising space in the Payson Roundup. Thank you, HPR!

Pardon my ignorance. When one writes under the banner of the Payson Roundup, it is assumed that they are speaking for the newspaper. Perhaps it would be wise to post a disclaimer on the blog that postings do not reflect the views of the ownership, staff or management of the paper.

It's a sad, sad day for Payson and Rim Country when the Payson Roundup openly endorses a candidate for office after stating in a recent editorial that it was not their policy to endorse candidates. It's almost as if issuing a business license qualifies as "economic development", the absence of a consistent marketing program to promote our area and funding a failing and faltering chamber of commerce defines "tourism promotion" and turning a blind eye to questionable back-room deals qualifies as "growth". If the motivation behind this endorsement wasn't so transparent and obvious, it would cause one to wonder why.

Patricia Johnson 7 months ago on New subdivisions coming Spring 2014????

I think I've stopped laughing long enough so I can post this. I was in a meeting a few weeks ago that a council member attended, and announced, very proudly, that a new subdivision with "affordable housing" along with homes in the $400,000 range was going in behind Town Hall. Furthermore, additional housing will be built on the "big hill by WalMart". I asked if water impact fees had been paid and building permits issued, and the reply was that "they are in Planning and Zoning now". I believe Planning and Zoning is government-speak for "Where Dreams Go To Die." I'll resume laughing now.

I'll be interested to see how the Chamber of Commerce and Town of Payson officials use this unique opportunity to promote tourism and economic development so badly needed in our communities. But I won't hold my breath.

Thanks, Kim! I have come to the conclusion after reading so many of Mr. Paulk's vile, vulgar and hate-filled posts that he and I are the exact opposites. I am a horse's head.
