We thank you for your service

Dear Editor, Our message to the thousands of War on Terror heroes should be, “You did your duty and accomplished your mission. We thank you for your service and honor you as victors.” The fact there was never a repeat of Sept.11, 2001 is proof that our troops and their sacrifices won the war in […]

President Biden blames everyone but himself

Dear Editor, Twelve Marines and a Navy Corpsman died at the Kabul Airport because our nation’s top leadership – from the president to his entire top leadership team – failed them. “The buck stops with me,” President Joe Biden read from a teleprompter at his recent press conference. Then he blamed everyone else for his […]

In response to two letters to the editor

Dear Editor, I was going to send my response to you last week about the Jennifer Hart letter to the editor, but did not. I am glad that I did not because I want to add something more because of this last week’s issue. Letter writer Jay Taylor you are right on. I am sure […]

Put in place a universal masking policy

Dear Editor, I don’t know about many of you, but we had high hopes for this upcoming school year.

This past month […]

50 citations to Lakeville Lake residents

Dear Editor, My neighbor, sweet Louise is 92 years young and a longtime resident of Lakeville Lake. She and I are just baffled why Addison Township has decided to issue over 50 criminal citations to Lakeville Lake residents for dock violations. Louise got a citation and has already appeared twice before the 52nd District Court. […]

Never too young

Never too young

Who says young people don’t like newspapers? This scrapping young lad, Quinn Cooke, 17-months-old, is clearly ahead of the curve on learning current events — and probably The Leader’s youngest reader. We predict good things for young Master Quinn. Thank you parents Justin and Kelsey Cooke of Oxford Village for sharing! — D. Rush

Remembering ‘Jackie’ Wassil

Dear Editor, I have noted with extreme sadness the passing of good friend, community activist, Village Council member, Council president, member of the planning commission and the first OCDA executive director, Jackie Wassil. (“First village president passed away,” published July 21.) One always understood what Jackie’s position was on any particular matter, she never minced […]
