dedicated to those hearty souls who struggled and toiled

IFriends of Payson
Online newspaper with wonderful stuff about the Rim
Country. "Payson.cc promises to discuss politically
incorrect issues and provide information on subject
matter that is ignored or suppressed by conventional
news sources, particularly those issues relating to
"Yahoo Nation," those people and areas of America which
produce the fundamentals of life. Regardless of what
scandal, government policy or trivia captures public
attention at any given moment in history, the bottom
line is that all life is merely the beneficiary of the
soil and only upon the backs of those who work the earth
are civilizations made possible. In our quest for full
disclosure, we guarantee to tick off political factions
on the left, the right and in the middle. And to provide
respite from serious matters that affect our present and
future we ask you to rest with us and visit our links
that take you into the past, over the mountains, valleys
and plains of America and across the world. We hope you
will visit us often."
