Perhaps store keepers can be competitive, keep better hours, that would help. Better quality of goods too. Give us more options (Walmart's not one of them) and perhaps more people would shop locally.

I originally moved here to get out of the Valley heat on weekends, since you asked. I later decided to just live here full time. When I need something I drive to the Valley, shop online etc. However I still believe Payson is a gorgeous under-rated, under-developed town that could rival any tourist destination in the State with the right thinking and management.After all, not everyone here is retired or a senior (I am). Some of the ideas at the 10 yr plan meetings for Payson were wonderful, I can only hope they will be put into motion. Surely as a long time resident as I assume you are from your posts, you realize that your property value is nothing compared to other cities/towns in Az. I know we can do better, and having young people in town could only improve things. They are innovative and we won't be here forever.

Without a reason for people to consider Payson a destination, property value, jobs, etc will wither and die as they have been.

No one should eat that many calories in one day. America is #1 in obesity with 33% of our population obese. Sad. Luckily Anytime Fitness is open 24/7 and I spent part of my day there. Discipline, healthy eating and exercise folks.

the people that work at Safeway are fantastic. Always friendly and helpful. Women need to realize that women suffer heart attacks too, and not all symptoms are the same.

If voting ever changed anything it would be illegal. Thank the Supreme Court for Citizens United where all the top .1% can buy any office.

With all the real problems in this country the war on drugs is a waste of time and resources that could be used better elsewhere. 52% or better of Americans want it totally decriminalized. Colorado is booming with the extra income, and crime has gone down.

incentives? I'm sure ASU doesn't let students attend for free. A California University is now trying to raise their tuition fees by 28%. They are for profit, no? Speaking of incentives, what incentives were given to Walmart to come in and destroy Main St?

firemen and volunteer firemen are heroes. They need all the help/support we can give. Take a little off the police budget and fund the fire dept.

Rental insurance is relatively inexpensive and would cover their hotels, etc while repairs are being made. Every tenant should consider purchasing this insurance.
