Eagle project solicits ‘Thank you’

Eagle project solicits ‘Thank you’

To the Editor: I am 15 years old, attending McNary High School, and a member of Troop 67 of the Boy Scouts of America. Recently I have completed my Eagle project. In Bob Newton Park, a pedestrian bridge sorely needed maintenance and had been on the Keizer park department’s to-do list. For my Eagle project, […]

Not the Keizer I knew

Not the Keizer I knew

To the Editor: It is sad to see Ace Hardware go, as it was Roth’s Fresh Market and the other tenants of Schoolhouse Square. The city council promised a lot of money for River Road re-development, only to divert the money to support Keizer Station. Then we have a Chamber of Commerce that would rather […]

Paper should be ashamed

Paper should be ashamed

To the Editor: The Keizertimes had the article with Councilor Jim Taylor’s rants on the front page of its website for several days with a poll suggesting Keizer Youth Sports Association (KYSA) was wrong in taking items KYSA owns from the Keizer Little League park.  However, the article stating a more fair and balanced explanation […]

Economic inequality cause for alarm

Economic inequality cause for alarm

Chances are the reader has already heard that when business and political leaders met in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum last week to discuss world economic issues, some of them looked at evidence about how much the rich have become richer while the poor have slid in the other direction.  The related statistic that’s […]

To the Editor: Living in a red zone within a blue state, I am ready for cries that Don Vowell is a “stinking socialist” or worse with respect to his column in the January 17 Keizertimes (The givers and the takers).  I have heard it before. Clearly not a supporter of “trickle down” or “the […]

School choice week good time to consider options

School choice week good time to consider options

To the Editor: Today, Oregon families have a range of diverse options for quality education for their children, whether they attend traditional brick-and-mortar public school, are homeschooled, attend virtual public school through Oregon Connections Academy, or enroll their children anywhere in between. Education is no longer one-size-fits-all; not every school is the right fit for […]

Thank you, Keizer, for filling food bank

Thank you, Keizer, for filling food bank

To the Editor: On behalf of the Keizer Community Food Bank  I want to thank the Keizer community for their generous donations to the food bank over the last year. Particularly, store director Darren Dye and crew at Albertson’s for providing 76 turkey dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas; Jim Nardi and company at Uptown Music […]

What are the views?

What are the views?

To the Editor: In spite of the fiery rhetoric from talk radio and cable TV commentary, reasonable people can find grounds for civil discourse. For instance, it is quite possible to be pro-gun and anti- gun lobby, or even anti-abortion but pro-Planned Parenthood. In one area however, there is no middle ground, you either understand […]

Metal, Plastic and Gas — drive safely

Metal, Plastic and Gas — drive safely

To the Editor: The next time you are driving down the road in a hurry – to go nowhere – think about the 2,000 pounds of metal, plastic and gas, (MPG) you are directing for the safety of your life and others. Miles per gallon isn’t the only thing MPG stands for when it comes […]

A letter of apology

A letter of apology

Dear Keizer Youth Sports Association: I am deeply sorry for the damage I caused to your park (Keizer Little League Park). I personally regret doing this senseless act because I am the oldest and therefore I should know better. It was a completely unnecessary act with others having to lose their time with cleaning it up.
