Trump’s running mate

Trump’s running mate

To the Editor: As Mr. Donald Trump searches for a running mate, may I suggest a few criteria? He should pick someone equally qualified for the office with good name recognition—from the west to balance the ticket and perhaps, a woman.  The only question then is, which Kardashian should it be?

Writer’s bias is showing

Writer’s bias is showing

To the Editor: I have to question Debra Saunder’s credibility in her opinion piece on Hillary Clinton (Hill’s emails: lying in plain sight, Keizertimes, June 3). Saunders writes the same lies and spews her hatred of Clinton just like the other Clinton haters. What Clinton is “accused” of is not a crime, she has not […]

Offensive parade entry wasn’t okayed

Offensive parade entry wasn’t okayed

To the Editor: Keizer is dear to my heart. Like many of you I see it as a place to raise a family, socialize with friends and participate in a great volunteer focused community. These are my first few weeks as the executive director of the Keizer Chamber of Commerce; and, from the get-go I […]

Politicans and the city budget

Politicans and the city budget

To the Editor: Sometimes politicians can drive me crazy. During a recent budget committee meeting one position in the police department was not filled and we are told the problem is Keizer has such a low tax rate. Then we are told how the city has “stretched, matched, leveraged, granted and volunteered tremendously” and the […]

Fatal stabbing report

Fatal stabbing report

To the Editor: Your report on the fatal stabbing of Jeff Holly on Brooks Avenue (Long ordeal ends in fatal stabbing, April 22) was irresponsible. A collection of quotes from disgruntled neighbors and police blotter records do not constitute the truth.  I lived with Jeff Holly for the nine years previous to the Brooks Avenue […]

Stores closing due to higher wage

Stores closing due to higher wage

To the Editor: I am very disappointed in any business that uses the excuse that a higher minimum wage is the reason they are closing. I find it confusing that you wouldn’t want to pay a decent wage for people so they can even exist. No one can live on minimum wage as it is […]

Rickman Garden provides 17 raised beds which are rented by individual gardeners responsible for planing, growing, upkeep and harvesting. Our first gathering of the […]

Abuse of animals

Abuse of animals

To the Editor: Did you know 70 percent of animal abusers often have records of violent crimes? Animal abuse should stop because animals are family, animals die and animals have feelings, too. One reason animal abuse should stop is because they’re family. According to Stop Animal Cruelty, “some animals are not strong enough to take […]

Build a WinCo here and we will come

Build a WinCo here and we will come

To the Editor: My husband and I just read the “One Grocery Store” article in the Keizertimes of March 18. I am 70 years old and my husband is 89 years old. I have lived in Keizer since 1970. When we first moved to Keizer, Orcutts was open, and we shopped there without regard to […]

Can voters really trust Donald Trump?

Can voters really trust Donald Trump?

To the Editor: Let’s admit it: Donald Trump has an uncanny skill for branding and marketing. How else do you explain the personality cult that has grown significantly around his campaign, except by looking at his expertise as the CEO of a notable company? He is, as are his supporters, under the impression that his […]
