Thank you to bowl team supporters

Thank you to bowl team supporters

To the Editor: The McNary High School girls and boys bowling teams would like to thank Don Lebold, owner of Town & Country Lanes, for all his continued support of the school’s bowling teams.

Award winner thanks community

Award winner thanks community

To the Editor: I would like to thank the many friends who have sent me messages of congratulations on the First Citizen Award.  My wife, Sue, and I moved to Keizer in 1979; this has been a wonderful community to raise a family and operate a business. There are literally hundreds of people who volunteer […]

Manager, attorney tell it like it is

Manager, attorney tell it like it is

To the Editor: This past week I attended the city council meeting to find out more about a resolution to have a settlement agreement about the Rawlins’ property at Keizer Station.  I also wanted to publicly thank City Manager Chris Eppley and City Attorney Shannon Johnson for going before a state legislative committee that was […]

Support Roland Herrera for council

Support Roland Herrera for council

To the Editor: Hooray! With Mr. Herrera’s hat in Keizer’s “political circle.” I believe the community will finally see true citizen representation. Not the back door stuff that has blanketed Keizer for the past 15 years. Remember the Walmart fiasco? How about the tax on cell phones without the city council seeking input from the […]

Keizer police officers care

Keizer police officers care

To the Editor: On January 17, my heart stopped and my partner dialed 911. Within minutes she said officers arrived and one officer, Jeffrey Goodman, started performing CPR on me. This officer worked on me for several minutes and would not give up on me. My partner estimates  that my heart was stopped for at […]

Post no Bills

Post no Bills

To the Editor: A big thank you to Don Vowell for saying what needs to be said about the Bill Post primary campaign for House district 25. In the very wise words of David Byrne,  “This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco, this ain’t no foolin’ around.” There are any number of elected “public […]

Thank you to those who helped

Thank you to those who helped

To the Editor: After playing nine years of baseball at the Keizer Little League fields, I was happy to be able to give back by replacing the roofs on two dugouts as my Eagle Scout project.  This was only possible because of generous donations from Pfeifer Roofing.  Trevor Pfeifer donated all the materials, and had […]

Give Keizer’s winners their full due

Give Keizer’s winners their full due

To the Editor: I found it very disturbing that  Mayor Lore Christopher  would use the Keizer Chamber of Commerce’s First Citizen Awards Banquet as a platform  to announce that she would not run  for office again. This, in my opinion, was not the time or place for this announcement. This event was to focus on […]

The right kind of change

The right kind of change

To the Editor: When I consider the societal changes that are taking place in our country, I like to think of what our elders have seen over the years. Yes, I know that things will never be the same, we can never go back to what we once were. But there is a special connection […]

Teachers are not the problem

Teachers are not the problem

To the Editor: To those who denigrate teachers in the mass media: You clearly haven’t set foot in a classroom since you were a student. If you had, you would have immediately been impressed by a group of professionals, who among other things, at differing times for each of the more than 220 students whom […]
