Letters to the editor

Visited by an angel I wanted to share a heart warming story that took place in Oxford at the Casa Real restaurant on Sept. 24 I was taking my son and his friends out to dinner at Casa Real restaurant to celebrate his 19th birthday.  There were more friends than I had expected, however I […]

Letters to the Editor

Vote For . . . Oxford residents have the opportunity to shape the trajectory of the community’s future when they go to the polls in a few weeks.  The open seat for the newly-formed 66th House District and four open seats for the Board of Education will make this a consequential election. I support Emily Busch […]


 I was VERY disappointed in the September 7 edition of the Oxford Leader. Not ONE word was written about the opening home game of the Oxford Wildcats football game. This was not just a home opener of a football game, this was much more. This was an important event for our community. This was a […]

Thank you

Just read the “What to do when you come across a safety path” (Sept. 7, Oxford Leader). Thank you for publishing this. Good to hear police are actually stopping bikers to inform them of their etiquette (which is lifesaving for them). I would also like to comment on parents roles in teaching their children on […]

Be careful when crossing traffic

 I would like to bring this to the attention of everyone who uses the many bike/walking paths and trails in our area. I witnessed a situation two weeks ago which thankfully did not result in death or injury but easily could have. A man riding his bike crossed Drahner Road near Chirco Drive on the […]

Residents from Addison and Brandon townships, Oxford, Lake Orion, Clarkston, and Oakland Township held signs in the hot sun in […]

Please play our fight song each day

As we draw closer to the beginning of the school year, I want to take this opportunity and make a request of the Oxford High School administration. I believe I may be able to garner public support, through the publishing of this request, via the Leader. I speak for myself, but hope to also be […]

Thank you!

Thanks Don for the article about the 80th birthday reunion (July 20, 2022). The gang is anxious to do it annually, but we will see about that. It was certainly a well written article and I appreciate it. One of the main reasons I moved here, other than being on a lake and near nature, […]

Thank you for your coverage

I want to talk about concerns I have with recent comments which have been made to the board during unscheduled audience participation. Specifically, some parents and community members have […]
