Vote for Jim Taylor

Vote for Jim Taylor

The City of Keizer is fortunate to have a number of respected and qualified candidates running for the Keizer Fire District board of directors. However, none have the background and experience of Jim Taylor and I am pleased to endorse his candidacy. Mr. Taylor has been a member of the Keizer community his entire life, […]

Keizer Rapids concerts

Keizer Rapids concerts

I don’t think it is right that they are making a for-profit operation out of the concerts at Keizer Rotary Amphitheater. It was always non-profit for the people of the community, put on by band members of the community. Now they are going to make everybody pay and as usual only the folks that can […]

To the Editor: There’s been a lot of news about Indiana passing a freedom of religion law. Both sides in favor or against the law have voiced their opinions. My personal feeling is people who have strong religion reasons for not providing services should have rights under certain conditions. If there were only one baker […]

Paper is balanced

Paper is balanced

To the Editor:  Regarding Jim Keller’s view (Letter to the Editor, March 13) about liberal bias on the part of the Keizertimes, I note in the same paper, approximately 24 column inches devoted to supporting Keller’s conservative views (Michael Gerson) and 15 column inches reflecting what would appear to a liberal view (Gene McIntyre). The […]

Paper has bias against the right

Paper has bias against the right

To the Editor: I was very surprised reading the editorial titled “Do not be goaded into war.” Your prejudice toward any conservative positions is quite apparent. The first statement I object to is that “conservative politicans do not support food stamps, unemployment benefits, clean air and water.” Conservatives do support these programs but not when […]
