Mural, mural on the wall

Mural, mural on the wall

Keizer’s first public mural on the western wall of Keizer Florist will be dedicated on Wednesday, Oct. 1. This will be what is promised to be the first of a number of murals that someday will decorate our community. The Keizer Art Association was instrumental in bringing the mural about. They cited the famed murals […]

Columnist is wrong on search

To the Editor:  I would like to offer my thoughts on Mr. Gene McIntyre’s opinion of the Chemeketa Community College selection process concerning choosing a president (Chemeketa search should irk taypayers, Keizertimes, Sept. 19). I served for 18 years on the Chemeketa Board and as chair of the board. I was greatly involved in the […]

Keizer’s future

Keizer’s future

To the Editor: In a past issue of the Keizertimes we learned our city is forever stuck with a $2.08 maximum property tax. With the proceeds generated from that tax, our city council has to split tax money to provide a city administration, public buildings, public works, public parks and an adequate police force. Our […]

One bill? So what?

One bill? So what?

To the Editor: So Senator Jeff Merkley has written only one bill—now why is that a bad thing?  And it seems a bit surprising that this is perceived negatively by those who who oppose government intrusion into their lives. Art Burr Keizer

Sunset Avenue herd

Sunset Avenue herd

To the Editor: I am an animal lover and a nature lover. The sight of wild animals is a thrill, well, most of the time. The past two years we who live on Sunset Avenue have had a doe and her fawns living in our yards. Yes, they are so darn cute until they ruin […]

I’m voting for Mr. Keizer

I’m voting for Mr. Keizer

To the Editor: I was so glad when Roland Herrera told me he was running for Keizer City Council.  I first met Roland when my boys were in Little League and Roland was their coach (almost 25 years ago). I was awed by his commitment and the utter joy in his attitude toward coaching squirrely little boys. […]

Support can’t falter with apts. nixed

Many people in Keizer were sure the fix was in. They voiced the opinion that the city council had made up its made in favor of building 120 apartments in three-story buildings at the Herber property on Verda Lane (affectionally called the cow pasture). The council chambers was filled with residents on Tuesday, Sept. 2, […]

No to open primaries

No to open primaries

To the Editor: I used to live in a state with an open primary (Washington).  It sounds pretty good—in theory.  In practice it can be something else. In the primary, parties with a strong candidate sometimes found themselves encouraging their members to vote for a weak candidate of the other party to improve the odds […]

Does Thatcher deserve Keizer’s vote?

Does Thatcher deserve Keizer’s vote?

To the Editor: Our current state representative, Kim Thatcher, is running for state senator. She has been in the state legislature for several years.  Before I could vote for her I would like to know what she has done for Keizer. As far as I know, she has done very little. I hope she will […]

Political cartoons

Political cartoons

To the Editor: I find it troubling. Two fairly lengthy letters to the editor last week (Keizertimes, Aug. 29) on political cartoons bashed the publisher for his poor taste and radical Saul Alinsky leanings  in printing said cartoons.  I don’t understand the fuss. Political cartoons, by nature, are satirical and often imply philosophical questions on […]
