Love still going strong

By LACY RAMIREZ For the Keizertimes This isn’t a story about love at first sight. This isn’t a story about hate that turned into love. This is a story of a love that always was. “Not too many people have had a relationship like ours, from almost the beginning of time,” said Leonard Kunzman as he looked across the table at his wife in their apartment at Emerald Pointe Retirement Community.

IRIS helps visitors zoom in on fun

By CRAIG MURPHY Of the Keizertimes First there was the Keizer Iris Festival. Now there’s a new IRIS in Keizer. This is the Information Referral Internet Station kiosk rolled out recently by the Keizer Chamber of Commerce. One of the two kiosks is currently at Keizer Civic Center, while the other is at the Red Lion in Salem. A desktop using the same system is operational at the chamber office in Keizer Station. Rob Miller, past president of the Keizer Chamber of Commerce, noted IRIS is designed to help keep people informed – particularly visitors to Keizer. “It’s a virtual map,” Miller said. “You can click on it and shows things like local restaurants and an events calendar. If you are coming into the area, you can click and see where things like tire places and supermarkets are.” For more of this article and other news from around the Keizer area, pick up a copy of the Feb. 8 issue of Keizertimes, available at stores all around the area.
