Abuse of animals

Abuse of animals

To the Editor: Did you know 70 percent of animal abusers often have records of violent crimes? Animal abuse should stop because animals are family, animals die and animals have feelings, too.

Build a WinCo here and we will come

To the Editor: My husband and I just read the “One Grocery Store” article in the Keizertimes of March 18. I am 70 years old and my husband is 89 years old. I have lived in Keizer since 1970. When we first moved to Keizer, Orcutts was open, and we shopped there without regard to […]

Can voters really trust Donald Trump?

Can voters really trust Donald Trump?

To the Editor: Let’s admit it: Donald Trump has an uncanny skill for branding and marketing.
