Looking for support

Dear Editor, It had been four months now since the Oxford High School shooting. Almost $2,000,000 has been raised by caring onlookers, for distribution to victims and their families. People harmed should always be our first concern. However, now is time to especially recognize the four who left us permanently as a result of this […]

Readers don’t want to read that

Dear Editor, This is in response to the article last week on the “Crumbley’s week in court”. I was watching golf on Saturday and my wife decided to share the information on what The Leader reported, which is good reporting and need to know if you desire, about what the alleged Oxford school shooter is […]

Long live The Leader

Dear Editor, I know Don Rush’s column on community newspapers was published in a Janurary edition, but I have been thinking about it for a long time, and I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU! I hope the Oxford Leader is active well into the future and I will always subscribe to it. May God continue to […]

Oxford survivors fund

Dear Editor, I dislike when a statement is prefaced with “I think we can all agree…” I am going to use it anyway. I think we can all agree that the majority of the donors to the accounts at Oxford Bank and Genisys Credit Union expect the majority of the funds to go to the […]

Sorry, Oxford museum – no money for you!

Dear Editor, As if we aren’t paying enough already in property taxes, the Michigan Senate under Republican leadership may soon be voting on SB-653, the “History Museum Authorities Act.” We already pay for the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Zoo. Now some legislators want to add another 0.4 mills to our property taxes […]

Another big thank you

Dear Editor, I just wanted to take a moment to say “thank you!” Lyndi and Lily feel like a million bucks, having their photo in the newspaper (Feb. 9 edition). In this age of technology, social media, and the like, it’s refreshing and truly organic to receive a good old-fashioned newspaper. So thank you, again, […]

A big thank you

Dear Editor, Just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to the OXFORD FIRE DEPARTMENT, OAKLAND COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE, TIM HORTON’S AND DTE for their quick and compassionate response to my emergency on Sunday, January 30. Our Purdy Lane barn burned down in the early morning hours and two DTE line men going to work […]

Good feelings from flight path

Good feelings from flight path

Dear Editor, Good afternoon. I heard a small plane over my house for quite a while this morning. When I opened my FlightRadar24 app (my son is a pilot), I saw this image from the pilot’s flight. Brought a tear to my eye. You are more than welcome to use my photo. Our community needs […]

#OxfordStrong has special meaning for family

#OxfordStrong has special meaning for family

Dear Editor, Oxford Strong. We’ve seen this phrase a lot the last couple of years… Adorning front yards, in the windows of shops and restaurants downtown, on tee shirts and stickers. Since the tragedy at Oxford High School on November 30, 2021 we’ve been inundated with messages of Oxford Strong. But what does it even […]

Thank you!

Dear Editor, Meals on Wheels in Oxford, Lake Orion and Addison thanks Independence Village of Waterstone for providing the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day meals for our homebound seniors. Hot delicious meals were donated so our local seniors could not only have a nutritious meal on the holidays but also be greeted by a […]
