Keizer Rapids Regional Park

Keizer Rapids Regional Park

To the Editor: I am under the impression our Keizer Rapids Park was a regional park since Marion County contributed funds to purchase some of the property. The county was able to spend county park money. If the park is regional, the county should provide the city with funds for some park maintenance.  County Commissioner […]

State of the Union

State of the Union

To the Editor: The President’s State of the Union address is, by long standing tradition, a chest thumping opportunity for the administration in power. I would have expected no less from Obama. And a negative rebuttal by the other party is expected as well. It seems like things have never been better—or worse. Let me […]

Protests

Protests

To the Editor: I am very much in favor of a protest provided it is non-violent.  Protest is just a way of showing displeasure with certain actions by government, industry and individuals. I certainly don’t support mobs that create damage to persons or property.  Unfortunately, protests are sometimes conducted by people who ignore facts or […]

Letter writer could not be more wrong

Letter writer could not be more wrong

To the Editor: Thank you, Martin Doerfler, for your thoughtful and well researched letter concerning the Mike Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.—not! I recognize that you are entitled to your opinion (opinions are like belly buttons—everybody has one), but when you ignore facts and actual evidence to further your social justice agenda, you don’t contribute […]

Get back to true meaning of holiday

Get back to true meaning of holiday

To the Editor: What is Christmas all about and why do we celebrate it? In Bethlehem, a baby was born and his name was Jesus and his mother was Mary. There were shepherds, men had come to see Him. Also, wisemen traveled a long distance to bring gifts and to worship Him. That should tell […]
