Almost lost to history

In her presentation, Rocker gave an in-depth review of Letitia’s life, noting multiple interesting facts about her life such as traveling the Oregon Trail while pregnant, managing and improving hundreds of acres of land in the Polk County area and winning two legal cases in racially exclusive Oregon over a decade before slavery was abolished.

Women’s history celebrated and liquor licenses discussed at City Council

The March 6 Keizer City Council meeting was a quick affair, with one public hearing and two reports.

Mayor Cathy Clark opened the meeting by proclaiming March Women’s History month in Keizer. She invited all the women at the meeting, including councilors, to accept the proclamation. 

The council voted unanimously to recommend liquor license renewal for more than 60 Keizer establishments. The recommendation will be forwarded to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. Liquor licenses are required to be renewed each year.
