Thanks for your kindness

Thanks for your kindness

To the Editor: To the gentleman who found my bank card, I would like to say “thank you” for going out of your way to return it to my bank.  As fate would have it, I was frantically searching for my card today when I realized it was missing. At that moment, I received a […]

Put more effort into CTE for students

Put more effort into CTE for students

Some of our state legislators will get into something that has complex features and then over-simplify it for the sake of political gain.  A classical example of such a matter is a guest opinion in another newspaper by Republican Senator Ted Ferrioli of John Day who wrote glowingly but without a word about the historic shortcomings regarding career and technical […]

KPAC, SKEF work for student art

KPAC, SKEF work for student art

To the Editor: Regarding the article regarding the All Student Art Show (Questions arise over student art show at KPAC meeting, Jan. 8 Keizertimes) I want to clear up any perceptions that the Salem Keizer Education Foundation (SKEF) or Krina Lee were in any way part of the concern.  SKEF and Krina have been nothing but […]

Politicizing guns

Politicizing guns

To the Editor: In a recent column (Keizertimes, Dec. 18), Gene McIntyre joined in lockstep with the Obamas, Clintons and Schumers in blaming the Republicans and NRA for the lack of gun control. Of course, this always follows reminders of all the horrific acts recently committed by madmen. One would have to be more than […]

Gesture brings smile to my face

Gesture brings smile to my face

To the Editor: One afternoon in the the summer of 2013, I had a very brief exchange with someone whose name I still don’t know, but I think about him often and would love to thank him for brightening my day with his inspiring attitude. I had just entered the Keizer Civic Center and was […]

To the Editor: As you read this, know that little hands are anxiously waiting to open their presents! Once again, Keizer Network of Women (Keizer Chamber of Commerce), have completed another year of service to our community.  267 children from Keizer were treated to warm clothing, toys, canned food, meat and fresh produce.  Months of […]

Gun control

Gun control

To the Editor: The debate about gun control goes on and on. There are many people who are terrified since the recent mass shootings. A lot of these people have gone out and bought hand guns for personal safety. Many have taken gun safety classes and have applied for a concealed hand gun license. I […]

Parade marshal too politicized

Parade marshal too politicized

To the Editor: Thirteen years ago Dr. Bud Pierce saved my life, so I certainly  bear him no ill will—nor grudges  due to his party affiliation, which he and I used to converse about during my course of treatment with him. He and (wife) Selma have certainly done a lot for the citizens of Salem/ […]
