Good feeling about Rep. Post

Good feeling about Rep. Post

To the Editor: Even though we’re registered in different parties, I came away with a good feeling about Rep. Bill Post (Post talks about first year in Capitol, Keizertimes, Aug. 14). A couple of really positive things stood out. So, let me get one “partisan” issue out of the way. He stated: “Business will always […]

Can’t beat ‘em

Can’t beat ‘em

To the Editor: It has finally dawned on me, the National Rifle Association (gun nuts) have won.  With almost no chance for meaningful gun control legislation, the only opportunity left for people to obtain even a semblance of protection is to buy a gun and a Kevlar vest and wear them all of the time. Might […]

Iran nuclear deal

Iran nuclear deal

To the Editor: The Iran deal will make the world a more dangerous place, unless we write to our elected officials to modify it a follows: Make any lifting of sanctions be contingent upon unlimited access to possible nuclear weapons  sites; and perhaps make this preventing of nuclear weapons go on for  more than 10 […]

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 […]

Ed Dougherty

Ed Dougherty

To the Editor: Ed Dougherty was an icon. For years in the Salem-Keizer area and beyond, Ed touched many lives through EJD Enterprises. Ed along with his wife,  Jan, worked together for years to bring concerts and events to the people of our community. Some of the greatest musicians from the 1960s, ‘70s, ‘80s and […]

CERT thanks supporters

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. We couldn’t have done it without them. They helped by putting up 20 x 20 tents, […]

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 […]
