Succession planning is good for your brand

The hit HBO show “Succession” brought to the mainstream a concept that has been around for centuries. Some even argue there are lessons from God on succession planning in the Bible. No matter how far it dates back, the concept of planning for what and who is next when it comes to a business’ future […]

Against a single waste hauler for Oxford Twp. residents

As a resident of Oxford, I strongly disagree with Oxford Township Board of Trustees decision to begin the process of an RFP for a single waste hauler prior to having the proposal voted upon. That’s a prime example of “putting the cart before the horse.” I do NOT agree with the township having a provider […]

Need for accessible healthcare in rural Michigan

The reality for many in our rural communities, including Oxford, is a lack of immediate access to hospital services, posing a dire risk to public health and safety. The necessity to travel nearly 30 miles for hospital care is a glaring testament to the gaps in our healthcare system. The introduction of HB-5477 by 66th […]

Why was single waste hauler proposal brought up again?

I read with interest the article in the Oxford Leader on Nov. 15, 2023 concerning the request for an RFP (Request for Proposal) for a single waste hauler for Oxford Township and it piques my interest of why this proposal has been brought back up after being shelved previously. As a former businessman who prepared […]

Save the empathy, compassion for students, families

I have some questions for the author of “Everyone deserves to truly heal.” (Oxford Leader, Letters to the Editor, Nov. 15, 2023) The author wrote, “. . . people can also admit these people deserve empathy and compassion as much as any of us.” Wait what? What about the people who have refused to extend […]

Thank you Oxford first responders

I recently had the need to rely on our local Oxford sheriff, the police department, and fire and rescue personnel with emergency health issues on three occasions. I would be remiss if I didn’t point out to the public the great service these wonderful people provide for this city. Each and every person I encountered […]

Everyone deserves to truly heal

Like everyone in our community, events of November 30, 2021, were crushing. Physically, mentally, and emotionally crushing. This is a community where the degree of separation is likely no more than one person, so unless you are new here, you were likely deeply affected. I’ve read the report and the results are what I expected. […]
