Support for Chet Patterson

To the Editor: I support Chet Patterson for Position 3 of the Keizer Fire District Board of Directors.

State should go slow on speed increase

State should go slow on speed increase

To the Editor: As the Oregon legislature races toward increasing speed limits (pun intended), they need to back off for a moment and think about the unintended consequences that will follow. How about this: Let’s talk about funding the Oregon State Police with the goal of hiring a few hundred troopers to regain the strength […]

However, none have the background and experience of Jim Taylor and I am pleased to endorse his candidacy. Mr. Taylor has been a member of the Keizer community his entire life, […]

Keizer Rapids concerts

Keizer Rapids concerts

I don’t think it is right that they are making a for-profit operation out of the concerts at Keizer Rotary Amphitheater.
