State champs thank sponsors

The Oxford High School Equestrian Team has a long history of success, but the Wildcats made history this year by earning back-to-back state championships. And we couldn’t have done it without the community’s support. The riders, their horses, coaches and parents would like to say thank you for all those who helped us reach this […]

Words of welcome, wisdom from Supt. Throne

Welcome back to school, whether you have been a long-time resident in Oxford or this is your first year experiencing our schools and community! I am assured you will find almost six hundred conscientious and trustworthy employees, including bus drivers, food service personnel, support staff, teachers, administrators, and Board of Education members, all who are […]

Resident voices concerns over proposed cell tower

I have to voice my concerns and disgust with the actions being made by Addison Township in regards to a proposed Verizon Cell tower on Property owned by Addison Township that does not fit Zoning, ordinances or any other factor, in addition to the fact that Verizon has alternative sites to use that would not […]

Cable commissioner gives her thoughts on station options

I am responding to the recent My Way article, “Common sense says park is better choice for OCTV home.” Generally, I have pretty thick skin and can kindly thank someone for their opinion, even if it differs from mine. But to say a decision lacked common sense and cite reasons that don’t capture the entire […]

Resident sounds off on Lakeville’s identity crisis

Where the heck is Waldo? If you look at his driver’s license, you may still not know. We have lived in four places in Michigan where the addresses on our drivers licenses did not match the geographic location of our house. Why is that? The post office says it is about how postal districts are […]

Stop ‘reckless rezoning and over-building’

In his July 5, 2017 column, Editor C.J. Carnacchio wrote about his financial loss due to yet another needless vehicle accident on M-24. I sympathize with C.J. Less than a month ago I was also involved in an accident. My vehicle was struck from behind and I not only suffer financial loss like C.J., I […]

Lack of patriotism bothers resident

We just celebrated one of America’s holidays – the 4th of July. What a wonderful time to remember what a fantastic country we live in and how thankful we all should feel. My husband and I celebrated the 4th with a bike ride with our son, daughter-in-law, two grandchildren and our next door neighbor. We […]

Keep those kitties inside

I like feeding the birds and look forward to the many varieties that appear each day. It’s relaxing and an inexpensive hobby for me. Imagine my heartbreak when I found a decapitated bird in my bird bath (probably flung there by a cat “playing” with it), or a birdhouse knocked to the ground and the […]
