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 […]

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 […]

One-party rule not good

One-party rule not good

From the Capitol By Rep. Bill Post I hope that you’ve had as good a summer as I have had.  For many of the 20 summers the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes have been here, I was the public address announcer including this summer. I’m a huge Los Angeles Dodgers fan so as you can imagine, it’s been […]

Councilor eyes a dedicated zip code

Councilor eyes a dedicated zip code

To the Editor: Regarding: 97303: Keizer or Salem? Councilor eyes dedicated ZIP code (Keizertimes, Aug. 5): Really? I mean, really?  Who are the “we” in Councilor Marlene Parsons statement that “we want Keizer to have its own ZIP code?” Why is she making this non-issue an issue? Doesn’t Councilor Parsons have something better and more […]

Join me, vote for Gary Johnson

Join me, vote for Gary Johnson

To the Editor: To the Republicans, Democrats, and Independents who feel cheated and do not want to vote for either of the nominees of the two major parties, I urge you not to waste your vote on Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but to turn to a viable third option: Gary Johnson, the nominee for […]

Korean War: 63 years later

To the Editor: July 27, 2016 marks the 63rd anniversary of the ceasefire of the Korean War (the “Forgotten War” that is technically still going on). To date, no peace treaty has been signed. A ceasefire went into effect at 10 p.m. July 27, 1953, which required all troops to begin dismantling and vacating their […]
