About 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, Keizer police confronted a man in the parking lot of Safeway on River Road North after it was alleged he brandished a machete out of the window of his moving vehicle after cutting off another driver and then brake-checking him. Officers could not establish a crime had been committed and no charges were filed.
No charges in alleged threat with machete
We are your reader-supported local news source. We survive in this era because subscribers are backing us.
You can be a backer too, and keep alive a powerful community asset — strong, independent and accurate news.
We do this with a small staff, locally funded and locally managed. We hold local government officials accountable for how they use their power and your money. We tell about people who are successes — in community life, in business, in public service. We give you stories that keep you well connected to the place you call home, in a way no other news organization does.
But as you’ve likely heard, the media world is in an upset. The traditional ways of funding news are eroding. Across the country, news organizations are cutting back and laying off staff. We want to go the other way — to build, to do more.
Your support now ensures we continue pursuing the vital news of the community. A paid subscription is one way. If a regular subscription doesn’t suit your needs for now, support us with a donation. We promise every dollar given will go to the cost of gathering news — every single dollar.
Support us today and join the movement that says the loss of local news is an unacceptable loss for the community. A digital subscription is just $10 a month.
