You don't have to buy the Roundup anymore

Tired of all the inaccuracies, untruths and exaggerations in the Roundup

All the stuff about a $500 million campus being built in Payson that never mentions the name of even one of the big buck donors?  The unresearched article implying that the water deal between Payson and Star Valley is good for Star Valley? 

Why won't they ask the tough questions of Payson Mayor Kenny Evans and water guru Buzz Walker? 

Many of you have said you only buy the Roundup for the grocery ads.

Did you know The Arizona Republic carries those same Safeway and Bashas' ads every Wednesday?  Simply subscribe to the Republic or pick up the Wednesday edition.

And in the Sunday Republic, you get Walgreens, Home Depot, Target and many more ad sections -- plus hundreds of dollars in coupons.

To get the local news, pick up a free copy of the Mogollon Connection every Wednesday at Bashas', Safeway, WalMart, The Beverage Place and dozens of other Rim Country locations.  Editor Matt Brabb and his award winning team tell it like it is -- without embellishment, hyperbole and unsubstantiated information.

You don't have to buy the Roundup anymore.  You don't have to support mediocre journalism. 

But you can support our local economy.  The Roundup is owned by a Kansas company.  The Connection is owned by a Northern Arizona company.
