End of year tax write off

End of year tax write off

To the Editor: Parents of McNary High School students are preparing for the senior graduation party. We hope to make the 2015 event just as successful as those in the past, a success made possible by hard-working volunteers and generous support from community members like you. The evening will be filled with entertainment, games, prizes, […]

Fundraiser for Payton Williams

Fundraiser for Payton Williams

To the Editor: On behalf of the McNary Celtics varsity girls and boys teams, we would like to say a huge thank you to all who came out and supported the Celts for Payton Williams night last Friday, Dec. 12.  Over $1,200 was raised for the Williams family.  The family was overwhelmed and very touched […]

Letter writer could not be more wrong

Letter writer could not be more wrong

To the Editor: Thank you, Martin Doerfler, for your thoughtful and well researched letter concerning the Mike Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.—not! I recognize that you are entitled to your opinion (opinions are like belly buttons—everybody has one), but when you ignore facts and actual evidence to further your social justice agenda, you don’t contribute […]

Get back to true meaning of holiday

Get back to true meaning of holiday

To the Editor: What is Christmas all about and why do we celebrate it? In Bethlehem, a baby was born and his name was Jesus and his mother was Mary. There were shepherds, men had come to see Him. Also, wisemen traveled a long distance to bring gifts and to worship Him. That should tell […]

Telling the truth doesn’t make one a racist

Telling the truth doesn’t make one  a racist

To the Editor: Kudos to Bill Quinn and Gene McIntyre for their remarks on the Ferguson, Mo.  protests in the Keizertimes in the Nov. 5 issue. They studied the facts and addressed them candidly and honestly. I suspect some will label them racist, when they simply stated the facts. Meanwhile, across the country, thousands haven’t […]

Law enforcement

Law enforcement

To the Editor: If people of all colors would obey lawful commands of law-enforcement officers they would not be subjected to any kind of harsh treatment. It seems to me that these people have attitude problems or suffer from mental problems. They may even feel they are entitled. Sure, there are some cops that have […]

Jesus missing in the Holiday Guide

Jesus missing in the Holiday Guide

To the Editor: Just this morning I received the Keizertimes 2014 Holiday Gift and Event Guide in the mail. It was filled with loads of gift ideas and local events. You can buy diamonds, veterinary services, flowers, meals at McDonalds or Subway, and much, much more.  Even a holiday subscription to the Keizertimes! There is […]

Teachers are a constant in kid’s lives

Teachers are a constant in kid’s lives

To the Editor: Sometimes I call parents’ homes in the evening to tell them how well their student is doing in class, or what an exceptional effort or improvement s/he is making. Almost invariably, the appreciative response will be something along the lines of, “How kind of you to call! I wish more teachers cared […]

Hayes is not the First Lady

Hayes is not the First Lady

To the Editor: I have been following the Kitzhaber and Hayes episode. I notice one newspaper insists on addressing Miss Hayes as “First Lady.” During the election, she was referred to as Kitzhaber’s fiancee. In past years a fiancee was one that approaching marraige age. The wife of the president or a governor carries the […]

Vowell is right

Vowell is right

To the Editor: The underlying message in Don Vowell’s article (Keizertimes, Nov. 7) would seem to be a rejection of the aims of the National Rifle Association and a plea for meaningful gun control.  Those are my sentiments exactly! It is beyond me why more people don’t see the relationship between the availability of guns and […]
