Two things I can't understand:
1) Why in the world would anyone buy a home in a forested community, put in acres of beautiful yummy grass and perpetual sources of water and NOT expect wildlife? More money than brains, I suppose.
2) Was this project put out to bid to local fence contractors? "Carol Mineart, board member, said the HOA has a good bid from a Valley fence company to put in an additional 2,200 lineal feet of fencing along the west side, north of the fence already installed off Tyler Parkway." I guess that whole "Be Loyal, Buy Local" thing is for the rest of us.
Well, you can say one thing about the RCEA. They have transparency. We can see right through them.
So, it looks like the first property to be built on the proposed university campus will be a charter school for grades K-8.
McArthur said ALA has not signed on the dotted line for a location, but will soon.
"Evans’ dream for the site includes more than just a school, but a host of community resources, like a hotel, sporting fields and even **a space for the charter school to build a campus. Representatives from the charter school said they plan to begin construction on the site for a 600-student campus in January, which could deal a potentially heavy financial blow to the Payson Unified School District by siphoning off students.**
Please poll the Mayor and Town Council and publish their intentions.
When my father was a small child growing up in Texas, the only way his small town got news was by the U.S. Mail, which took several days and sometimes weeks to deliver newspapers and letters with news from home. When a radio signal became available to his small rural community, many people didn't have radios, thought radio was a passing "fad" or just continued to rely on the U.S. Mail. I guess times haven't changed much since the early 1900's for some.
For the record, information on the shooting was posted (by me, from my home in Whispering Pines) on the KRIMFM Facebook page within 3 minutes of the dispatch call to the Payson Fire Department requesting that they respond to a call at Home Depot to render aid to a shooting victim. Updates were provided, when available, throughout the afternoon and evening on Facebook. I know of no local media able to afford the expense of 24 hour a day, 7 days a week news monitoring and/or reporting. I just happen to be an old woman with a $40 scanner and Facebook, which is free. And I wasn't paid to do it.
Beautifully written, Michele.
My money says that the first structure built on that property will be a church-affiliated charter school. But I could be wrong. I once said there was no way it would take 7 years of negotiating to bring a college here.
I beg to differ. More like a life-size bronze statue.
I would like to correct the misinformation that is posted in the comments about this poll. Arbitron began including non commercial radio stations in the fall of 2006. They include low power FM stations in their ratings as well. If you look at the information below you will see that they do in fact rate LPFM stations and they are included with commercial station ratings in every market. The are licensed the same as a commercial station and they are protected the same as any commercial station. Are their rules and guidelines different.....Yes, but then sponsors and supporters of LPFM know that.
