KPAC, SKEF work for student art

Politicizing guns

Politicizing guns

To the Editor: In a recent column (Keizertimes, Dec. 18), Gene McIntyre joined in lockstep with the Obamas, Clintons and Schumers in blaming the Republicans and NRA for the lack of gun control.

Parks district not a slam dunk

Parks district not a slam dunk

To the Editor: So, some members of the Parks Advisory Board are considering forming a Parks District. Why?

Parks board member Richard Walsh and city councilor Marlene Parsons seem to suggest that competing with other general fund […]
