One-party rule not good

One-party rule not good

From the Capitol By Rep. Bill Post I hope that you’ve had as good a summer as I have had.  For many of the 20 summers the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes have been here, I was the public address announcer including this summer. I’m a huge Los Angeles Dodgers fan so as you can imagine, it’s been […]

Councilor eyes a dedicated zip code

Councilor eyes a dedicated zip code

To the Editor: Regarding: 97303: Keizer or Salem? Councilor eyes dedicated ZIP code (Keizertimes, Aug. 5): Really? I mean, really?  Who are the “we” in Councilor Marlene Parsons statement that “we want Keizer to have its own ZIP code?” Why is she making this non-issue an issue? Doesn’t Councilor Parsons have something better and more […]

Join me, vote for Gary Johnson

Join me, vote for Gary Johnson

To the Editor: To the Republicans, Democrats, and Independents who feel cheated and do not want to vote for either of the nominees of the two major parties, I urge you not to waste your vote on Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but to turn to a viable third option: Gary Johnson, the nominee for […]

Korean War: 63 years later

Korean War: 63 years later

To the Editor: July 27, 2016 marks the 63rd anniversary of the ceasefire of the Korean War (the “Forgotten War” that is technically still going on). To date, no peace treaty has been signed. A ceasefire went into effect at 10 p.m. July 27, 1953, which required all troops to begin dismantling and vacating their […]

Reply to Don Vowell

Reply to Don Vowell

To the Editor: I might agree with a few statements from Don Vowell’s column (Stuck between two extremes, July 22) but not in whole. I don’t agree that Hillary Clinton is extreme. She offers up mostly middle of the road stands on issues and in some cases very progressive stances. That is not a bad […]

Mayor is correct

Mayor is correct

To the Editor: Mayor Cathy Clark recently brought up the subject of taxes and asked questions about what the city can currently afford and what the future demands may be for additional tax revenue. A mayor and city governments must ask these questions to be responsible and effective with their leadership. Especially with a growing […]

A poor choice of words

A poor choice of words

To the Editor: During the last budget meeting Mayor Cathy Clark stated that “there needs to be an ‘honest’ conversation about what type of community we want.” Now this week the mayor is quoted in the Keizertimes saying, “we need to have a ‘grown up’ conversation about our tax rate.” The mayor is also quoted […]

Support for Bud Pierce

Support for Bud Pierce

To the Editor: As a native Oregonian, I have become disappointed with my state government. There was a time when our state government listened to the people of Oregon. But in the last 20 plus years those elected (and appointed) have been controlled by big money and special interest groups. The mind-set seems to be […]
