A Poem For Oxford

A Poem for Oxford Last year, I wrote a poem for the town of Oxford after the shooting. This could have been anywhere. It could have been TC Central, or West, or Mancelona. Even though the cameras have left, the people are still coping. After all, people in Gaylord are still rebuilding after the tornado. […]

A letter to Oxford

Dear Oxford Families, As the holidays approach and we look forward to spending time with family and friends, we also feel great sadness as we reflect on the painful anniversary that forever changed the Oxford community and beyond. It’s been nearly a year, yet in many ways it seems like just yesterday. On November 30, […]

Library friends looking for space

 Hello everyone! I am writing to you on behalf of the Oxford Public Library Friends. We are in desperate need of a place to store, sort, and scan the donated books we receive. The space would need to be at least 12‘ x 15’ and either first floor or elevator accessible. It would also need […]

Thank you!

 Dear Editor, A big thank you to all of Addison Township residents who voted on Nov. 8 — all 3,677 of you! We had 72.17 % of registered voters cast their ballots. Great job Addison Voters! It truly is an honor it is to serve the residents of Addison. I truly appreciate your kindness and […]

Touched by Tate

The Wildcats won only one football game this season and I was heartbroken. Last year, when Tate was captain, they won many games. He had the leadership and charisma many 16-year-olds never have. He was a true leader but dedicated to his team: I watched his sidelines interview of October 29, 2021 and I was […]

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 […]
