Telling the truth doesn’t make one a racist

Telling the truth doesn’t make one  a racist

To the Editor: Kudos to Bill Quinn and Gene McIntyre for their remarks on the Ferguson, Mo.  protests in the Keizertimes in the Nov. 5 issue. They studied the facts and addressed them candidly and honestly. I suspect some will label them racist, when they simply stated the facts. Meanwhile, across the country, thousands haven’t […]

Law enforcement

Law enforcement

To the Editor: If people of all colors would obey lawful commands of law-enforcement officers they would not be subjected to any kind of harsh treatment. It seems to me that these people have attitude problems or suffer from mental problems. They may even feel they are entitled. Sure, there are some cops that have […]

Jesus missing in the Holiday Guide

Jesus missing in the Holiday Guide

To the Editor: Just this morning I received the Keizertimes 2014 Holiday Gift and Event Guide in the mail. It was filled with loads of gift ideas and local events. You can buy diamonds, veterinary services, flowers, meals at McDonalds or Subway, and much, much more.  Even a holiday subscription to the Keizertimes! There is […]

Teachers are a constant in kid’s lives

Teachers are a constant in kid’s lives

To the Editor: Sometimes I call parents’ homes in the evening to tell them how well their student is doing in class, or what an exceptional effort or improvement s/he is making. Almost invariably, the appreciative response will be something along the lines of, “How kind of you to call! I wish more teachers cared […]

Hayes is not the First Lady

Hayes is not the First Lady

To the Editor: I have been following the Kitzhaber and Hayes episode. I notice one newspaper insists on addressing Miss Hayes as “First Lady.” During the election, she was referred to as Kitzhaber’s fiancee. In past years a fiancee was one that approaching marraige age. The wife of the president or a governor carries the […]

Vowell is right

Vowell is right

To the Editor: The underlying message in Don Vowell’s article (Keizertimes, Nov. 7) would seem to be a rejection of the aims of the National Rifle Association and a plea for meaningful gun control.  Those are my sentiments exactly! It is beyond me why more people don’t see the relationship between the availability of guns and […]

Challenge also helped veterans

Challenge also helped veterans

To the Editor: I am a Vietnam veteran living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease. I am submitting this letter in hopes of raising awareness of how this horrific disease is impacting our military veterans. What do ice buckets and veterans have in common? The press did an excellent […]

Increases under two percent?

Increases under two percent?

To the Editor: The news recently was that there would be a 1.7 percent increase in the Social Security cost of living soon. It was noted that the increase would be the third time in a row that the increase would be below 2 percent. The news given was that the inflation rate has also […]

Support for Bill Post

Support for Bill Post

To the Editor: I want to encourage residents in House District 25 to cast your vote for Bill Post. Bill has been serving our community in numerous ways for many years. I’ve known Bill personally for almost 15 years. Back when our sons were going through Little League baseball, I had the opportunity to watch […]

Trust Rep. Thatcher

Trust Rep. Thatcher

To the Editor: I want to assure my fellow citizens that you can trust Representative Kim Thatcher, who is running for Oregon Senate District 13. I’ve known Kim and her husband, Karl, for seven years and they are dedicated, honest citizens working to improve government. You may have read recent news about them suing ODOT […]
