Thoughts on dealing with global conflicts

Thoughts on dealing with global conflicts

To the Editor: I have read and listened all Sunday morning to the views of pundits and politicians describing what we should be doing or have failed to do with respect to the Ukraine/Russia and Israel/Palestine crises.  Now that I am thoroughly informed, I offer the following thoughts: 1. Stop threatening Putin.  It is not only […]

Preserve instead of develop?

Preserve instead of develop?

To the Editor: The news about the Herber property (on Verda Lane between Chemawa and Dearborn) going to apartments ought to make Keizer residents pause a moment. Private use of private property for legal purposes always ought to be supported. In the case of “Cow Meadows,” perhaps it’s time once again for the community to […]

Cow pasture on Verda Lane

Cow pasture on Verda Lane

To the Editor: I just voted on the Keizertimes web poll.  My realistic vote is to extend Claggett Creek Park, Although        I would prefer it remain the way it is.  As a park, the homestead could be utilized as a museum, perhaps a wedding venue, such as Log House Garden on Windsor […]

Why not preserve Keizer history?

Why not preserve Keizer history?

To the Editor: The first 30 years of my life were spent in Keizer, until a job took me to Washington state. I still regularly visit family there and I am concerned about my hometown and what happens to it. With the exception of the inspired few who toil endlessly at the Keizer Heritage Museum, […]

Anything but boots on the ground

Anything but boots on the ground

To the Editor: Things are happening so fast in the Middle East right now and our options are so limited that it is difficult to see what the United States can and should do to protect its interests and the unfortunate people caught in the middle.  Too, the wrong actions on our part could very […]

KLL poison oak

KLL poison oak

To the Editor: I think it’s funny to read the sanitized version of what happened regarding the poison oak at Keizer Little League field.  The coach had no problem leaving his name, along with his poor wife’s picture covered in poison oak.  He tried for nearly two weeks talking to league officials and got nowhere […]

A vision for Keizer Rapids Park

A vision for Keizer Rapids Park

To the Editor: With the advent of bringing 58 acres of park land at Keizer Rapids Park into Keizer’s urban growth boundary, there is a great opportunity to revise the current plan and master plan the new acreage, “the filbert orchard area.” The city council and the Keizer Parks and Recreation Advisory Board are looking […]

Truth in advertising

Truth in advertising

To the Editor: The various companies vying for your and my communications business irritate the heck out of me. They make questionable claims for the superiority of their product while burying facts in print almost too small to read.  In one example, a guaranteed price for three years of Internet service is made meaningless by […]

House District 25 primary election

House District 25 primary election

To the Editor: I am a Marion County PCP and as such I have had the opportunity to meet the candidates running for office this cycle. As most of us do, I look for two things in a legislator: competency and integrity. I do confess to having a dog in this fight since I know […]

Support for Barbara Jensen for Dist. 25

Support for Barbara Jensen for Dist. 25

To the Editor: Rarely is one privileged to publicly endorse a candidate for office who stands out as a fine example of public stewardship. That person is Barbara Jensen, who is running for the atate representative in District 25. I have known Barbara professionally, and personally, for over 25 years.  In the workplace, Barbara’s work […]
