Ferguson, MO

Ferguson, MO

To the Editor: I must comment on the circus in Ferguson, Missouri. It was a tragedy when a white peace officer shot a black unarmed teenager. But before an investigation was completed and the circumstances were analyzed, rioting broke out. Trouble makers and hoodlums from as far away as New York appeared on the scene […]

Political cartoons

Political cartoons

To the Editor: As a native Oregonian, product of the Oregon school system, retired Army Nurse Corps veteran, wife, mother, grandmother and citizen of Keizer for more than 31 years, I have been incredibly proud to be an Oregonian. It has always been a thrill to come home from travels to this gorgeous place that […]

Thanks to those who made Rib Feast a major success

Thanks to those who made Rib Feast a major success

To the Editor: Thank you for sharing our story of the Aug. 4 Rib Feast. However, Dan and I were not alone in our efforts and support of the Navy-Coast Guard Wounded Warriors. We personally want to thank Keizerites Maleah Richard (Kitchen Queen) and daughter Brittany, Linda Carbajal, Nancy Varner, Gene and Betty Olson, Dave […]

Political cartoon tells wrong story

Political cartoon tells wrong story

To the Editor: I was shocked to see in my local newspaper such a false representation of the nation of Israel and its leader Benjamin Netanyahu, posed as the perpetrators of violence in the recent conflict with the terror group Hamas. While Israel is not perfect, the current conflict is not a complicated one to […]

November election in Keizer

November election in Keizer

To the Editor: How do you feel about having an election and you know the winner before you vote? I am referring to the election in Keizer when there may be no opposition for council positions and the mayoral spot. The people running for positions may be well suited for the job but it would […]

Another drug

Another drug

To the Editor: I know it is too early but come November we will be asked to vote for or against the legalization of marijuana (cannabis) for recreational use. At one time, I was in favor of letting adults determine for themselves what is good for them. Since then I have done some serious thinking. […]

What does Bill of Rights protect?

What does Bill of Rights protect?

To the Editor: The time is upon us again when we all go to the polls, cast our votes, return to our centered lives complaining and placing weight of all issues upon those we have elected. This is the process, is it not? No! We all may think it is, but only our ignorance allows […]

Thoughts on dealing with global conflicts

Thoughts on dealing with global conflicts

To the Editor: I have read and listened all Sunday morning to the views of pundits and politicians describing what we should be doing or have failed to do with respect to the Ukraine/Russia and Israel/Palestine crises.  Now that I am thoroughly informed, I offer the following thoughts: 1. Stop threatening Putin.  It is not only […]

Preserve instead of develop?

Preserve instead of develop?

To the Editor: The news about the Herber property (on Verda Lane between Chemawa and Dearborn) going to apartments ought to make Keizer residents pause a moment. Private use of private property for legal purposes always ought to be supported. In the case of “Cow Meadows,” perhaps it’s time once again for the community to […]

Cow pasture on Verda Lane

Cow pasture on Verda Lane

To the Editor: I just voted on the Keizertimes web poll.  My realistic vote is to extend Claggett Creek Park, Although        I would prefer it remain the way it is.  As a park, the homestead could be utilized as a museum, perhaps a wedding venue, such as Log House Garden on Windsor […]
