A poor choice of words

A poor choice of words

To the Editor: During the last budget meeting Mayor Cathy Clark stated that “there needs to be an ‘honest’ conversation about what type of community we want.” Now this week the mayor is quoted in the Keizertimes saying, “we need to have a ‘grown up’ conversation about our tax rate.” The mayor is also quoted […]

Men of Keizer and Rotary volunteers

Men of Keizer and Rotary volunteers

To the Editor: I’d like to thank several members of Keizer service groups for their volunteer help over the 4th of July weekend at Antique Powerland. Two groups assisted: Keizer Rotary and Men of Action (a Keizer Chamber of Commerce group). Members who volunteered were: Betty Hart and Alex Miller (and son) from Rotary Club […]

Church thanks community

Church thanks community

To the Editor: Truth Tabernacle Church and Truth Tabernacle Christian Academy would like to express our gratitude to the communities of Salem & Keizer for their donations to our 18th Annual 30 Kilometer Bike-A-Thon that was held on June 4th. It was a tremendous success and we thank you for your support. Jessica M. Anderson […]

Support for Bud Pierce

Support for Bud Pierce

To the Editor: As a native Oregonian, I have become disappointed with my state government. There was a time when our state government listened to the people of Oregon. But in the last 20 plus years those elected (and appointed) have been controlled by big money and special interest groups. The mind-set seems to be […]

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 […]
