State fair memories

State fair memories

To the Editor: My husband and I missed the state fair last summer. Instead of dodging piles of sheep shearing and licking the sticky residue of cotton candy from our fingers, Steve and I were in Roatan, scuba diving and following groups (pods? schools? flocks?) of squid. It was almost too hot to go on […]

Political cartoons out of bounds

Political cartoons out of bounds

To the Editor: Over the years that my family has subscribed to the Keizertimes, I had always been under the impression that its editor, a trained journalist, held to that most basic tenet of reporting the facts without bias. These last three weeks of editorial comics, however, have been a great reminder to me that […]

Many blessings

Many blessings

To the Editor: When I read last week’s article in the Keizertimes about depression, it made me pause and think about the things that are really important in life. Whatever the cause of depression, we must always remember that where there is breath, there is hope. I myself am familiar with hardships, in fact it’s […]

Roland Herrera

Roland Herrera

To the Editor: We first met Roland Herrera 30 years ago.  He has continually been active in the Keizer community, working on so many projects even he can’t remember all of them.  Because of that he was recognized as Keizer’s First Citizen, an honor well-deserved. Roland knows Keizer. Through his many activities and his work […]

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 […]

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

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. […]
