Sorry Tom, thought you were serious. I have had problems over the years trying to take care of my family with what I thought were the best drs. and some were and some were not. But at least I had a choice. Drs. are going to quit taking any insurance if the govt. keeps screwing around. Some of the insurance now is terrible.

Can't read what it says on her t-shirt. Wasn't just the Bible part. But I started school in Payson in 1941 and there were no bibles. Mention of the cucumber was a little crude for a wanna be school board member. Maybe the public should attend the school board meetings and visit the schools unannounced.


Pat Randall 1 day, 11 hours ago on 121 Is there anything wrong with eating horse meat?

Back to the horse meat, it may be a matter of choice if it wasn't illegal. During WW2. A lot of horse meat was eaten. Matter of choice, I tried lamb chops once, none of my family or me could stand the taste of it. I really like Elk meat. Not to crazy about venison (deer) but will eat it. Also like pork. I can not eat any of it if it is raised in my field. We had a big steer in our field when we lived in Gilbert. It was going to be our beef for the winter. I made the mistake of throwing veg. over the fence to him. After we had him butchered I couldn't eat any of it. Could see him running to meet me for his snack. The rest of the family really enjoyed it. Never make a pet of something you intend to eat.


Pat Randall 1 day, 11 hours ago on 135 More about the illegals mess in Europe.

Tom, Doesn't that sound like the U.S. and Mexico? Thousands are still crossing every week. It seems odd to me photographers are always showing pictures of illegals walking on our side of the border. Where are the border patrol, sheriffs, or any kind of law enforcement? Are they blind, stupid or looking the other way for $$$

What has the man losing his leg have to do with us needing National Health Care? Sounds like he was not doing his part by taking care of his problem. Maybe if the man had followed Drs. instructions he would not have lost his leg. My husband had diabetes for over 20 yrs. and never lost any limbs. My three kids have it and one got rid of his by losing weight. I have it and use only cinnamon capsules to control it.
My daughter is under some kind of govt. medical and they keep changing her insulin to pay for the cheapest one. Is that what you want? The cheapest care or choice of best care?

Kyle. Don't you work for the school or did? Is the Student Achievement Director really collecting $90,000 a year now?

Why didn't you run for the school board or did you?

I wish Mr. Aleshire would not put the weird headings on his storys. It looked like on this one that Payson schools were still short 2000 employees and I was wondering what the total of employees the schools here have.

Marlene Hetrick has no business on the school board if she is really like she came across to me in the above article. When was the Bible used as a textbook except in LDS seminary classes? I finished school in 1952 here in Payson. Have had children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren in school since 1957 in Mesa, Gilbert and Payson and in all those years no Bible was in the classrooms except what I mentioned before. Those seminary classes were taught off the school property. And making the remark about Islam was a very bad remark. Has she forgotten we have freedom of religion here in America? She is a definite NO VOTE.

As for Shirley Dye the kids were not taught phonics or how to print or write. I can't read some of my grandkids signatures.

Once again if we had teachers like Miss Julia Randall that taught me, all the kids would be a lot smarter and know how to read and write. Now it is all machines. Calculators and computers.

The kids that don't have computers at home have to stay in at recess and lunch to do their homework. Something wrong with that picture too.
