Never Hillary

Never Hillary

To the Editor: On Jan. 13, 2013, Hillary Clinton said, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Here are four reasons why Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be elected president: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods. Hillary lied after those four Americans died. Renee Dick Salem

A vicious debate indeed

A vicious debate indeed

To the Editor: For once a semi-positive letter about Hillary Clinton. I am sick of the witch hunt on Hillary Clinton. The Republicans have created scandals when there has been none. They make up false accusations and have a presidential candidate that says he is going to jail her when no criminal charges have never […]

Not all rosy at new Starbucks

Not all rosy at new Starbucks

To the Editor: It appears those of us who like to meet friends and settle in for a cozy chat are out of luck at the new Starbucks. There is not nearly enough parking close to the door, and the alternative is parking that involves a hike—not a pleasant prospect in our nasty weather. Inside […]

Support for Freeman in Dist. 25

Support for Freeman in Dist. 25

To the Editor: I’m supporting Sharon Freeman for state representative in House district 25 for many reasons. Here is just one. I recently heard Bill Post, incumbent in District 25, brag about how he successfully worked with both parties in the legislature to get his bill passed during the last session.  What was this bill […]

This veteran will honor anthem

This veteran will honor anthem

To the Editor: First, thanks to Gene McIntyre for his remarks in last week’s Keizertimes (Protests during national anthem, Sept. 23). I would like to add just one item regarding the United States Code having to do with rising, removing your hat and standing at attention for the playing of the national anthem. Legislation passed […]

Thank you community

Thank you community

To the Editor: McNary High School’s Band Day was a huge success! The band was out in full force on Sept. 10 collecting refundable cans, bottles and monetary donations. One hundred and fifteen band members, over 25 parent volunteers, the entire band booster staff and the amazing members of our beloved Keizer community came together […]

The parade mural is done

The parade mural is done

To the Editor: Keizer’s first community mural is complete. It is a beautiful piece of art for the city of Keizer to enjoy for many years to come.  Keizer Art Association and its members greatly contributed to its completion. Several members  need  attention:  Kathy Haney,  Nancy  Erickson-Ward, Barbara Hunter, Shirlee Johnson, Wendy Lusby,  Pat Matthews,  […]

Uniform display missing at fair

Uniform display missing at fair

To the Editor: I was very disappointed to learn that U.S. military uniforms were not on display this year at the Oregon State Fair. I heard that they were expected to pay for space if they wanted to be there. From what I understand they did not have to pay in the previous years to […]

VFW snubbed by state fair

VFW snubbed by state fair

To the Editor: After more than 16 years, the new management of the Oregon State Fair is not going to allow VFW Post 661  to show its nation’s uniforms at the fair. The VFW  was given a spot as a non-profit; now it is pay-to-play. Whatever  answer  they give it’s all political. It is their […]
