Senator wants people to stop SB324

Senator wants people to stop SB324

To the Editor: One of the first public hearings of the Oregon Legislature’s 2015 session was for Senate Bill 324, which extends the sunset for a low carbon fuel standards (LCFS) program set to expire December 31. The alleged purpose of LCFS is to reduce the “carbon intensity” of fossil fuels. Producers of biofuels will […]

Ethics

Ethics

To the Editor: What is going on in Oregon? We have a person in the governor’s chair that lacks scruples and good judgment. Governor Kitzhaber’s continuing episode with Cylvia Hayes is mindboggling. He claims he was blind sided about her past when it appeared in a newspaper article. The article pointed out her sordid background […]

Keizer Rapids Regional Park

Keizer Rapids Regional Park

To the Editor: I am under the impression our Keizer Rapids Park was a regional park since Marion County contributed funds to purchase some of the property. The county was able to spend county park money. If the park is regional, the county should provide the city with funds for some park maintenance.  County Commissioner […]

State of the Union

State of the Union

To the Editor: The President’s State of the Union address is, by long standing tradition, a chest thumping opportunity for the administration in power. I would have expected no less from Obama. And a negative rebuttal by the other party is expected as well. It seems like things have never been better—or worse. Let me […]

Protests

Protests

To the Editor: I am very much in favor of a protest provided it is non-violent.  Protest is just a way of showing displeasure with certain actions by government, industry and individuals. I certainly don’t support mobs that create damage to persons or property.  Unfortunately, protests are sometimes conducted by people who ignore facts or […]
