Not all welcome at concerts

Not all welcome at concerts

To the Editor: We have enjoyed the summer concerts at Keizer Rapids Park for some time but we had a bad experience Saturday, July 18. Several members of our Wood Carvers Club showed up as usual to enjoy the evening of music, food, fun and to do a little wood carving. As we set up […]

CERT thanks supporters

To the Editor: Keizer Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) would like to thank V2 Dentistry, the McNary High School football team, and Keizer Young Life for helping us set up June 19 for our annual garage sale June 20-21.

Gun regulation debate continues

Gun regulation debate continues

To the Editor: (I’m) pretty sure that Don Vowell expected some push back from the right when he penned his piece (Why is a gun different than a car?, June 12) on gun regs. Vowell is perfectly capable of defending his position on his own, he’s much more articulate than I. That said, it seems […]

Impeachment in Oregon

Impeachment in Oregon

To the Editor: The Oregon Legislature is the only one in the country lacking impeachment power over state executives.  House Joint Resolution 31 is designed to correct that deficiency, and is long overdue. This bill was voted out of the house and is now in the senate, in Senator Rosenbaum’s Rules Committee. Please contact your […]

Rights versus privileges

Rights versus privileges

To the Editor: It appears that Mr. Don Vowell (Why is a gun different than a car?, June 12), doesn’t know the difference between a right and a privilege, so let me explain slowly for him. A right is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, while a privilege comes from government. That’s why the state can […]

Failed law cost $2 billion up north

Failed law cost $2 billion up north

To the Editor: A recent letter mentioned Canada spending $10 million on failed gun laws. In fact, it was over $2 billion. The decades-long farce ended in the single greatest defeat for gun control advocates since the invention of gun powder. In an almost unbelievable example of irony anti-gun leader Wendy Cukier has done more than Sam […]

Call for gun control misguided

Call for gun control misguided

To the Editor: A writer to this page recently said “gun control is the solution,” along with his opinion of second amendment supporters. I would suggest he spend some time in Detroit or Washington D.C. The two cities with the most stringent gun laws in the U.S., and the highest violent crime rates. Walk around […]

Marion Co. Extension District

Marion Co. Extension District

To the Editor: On May 19 voters overwhelmingly supported a permanent funding source for Marion County 4-H and the Extension Service. This is an ideal investment in the county’s economy, youth, families, communities and natural resources. Created in 1911, the Oregon State University Extension Service provides the public with practical, research-based information through one-on-one advice, […]
