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. Numbers of COVID cases were down, and it seemed like there was a good chance that our children could have had a relatively stable school year. Unfortunately, that is not what is happening. This past month […]

Thank you residents of Oxford, Lakeville!

Dear Editor, My name is Mary Ann Hilton. My sister-in-law Kathy Diliberti and I were driving down Lakeville Rd. on Friday the 6th at around 3 p.m., from Rochester Rd. to M-24. A Ram 1500 going in the other direction as we passed Lake George Rd. made a quick turn into the side of my […]

Grab the kids and come to Centennial Park

Dear Editor, I want to encourage everyone to leave work early on Thursday, August 12, grab the kids and come to downtown Oxford by 4:30 p.m. for a night of fun, food and possibly funding! The Oxford Downtown Development Authority (DDA) partnered with Oxford Bank to create a fun, interactive family event that will benefit […]

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 […]

In support of Oxford Public Library

Dear Editor, Not everyone loves to read but libraries are so much more than stacks of books. In the past 20 years libraries have become the hub of the community in which they are located. Libraries provide safe places for working from home when the kids are rowdy, or getting tutoring time for a struggling […]

Deserves a ‘D’ for Democracy

Dear Editor, Addison Township appointed a Trustee without reviewing any of the candidate’s qualifications, accomplishments and what their ideas were of how they would serve, with the public. (See video at: https://youtu.be/ND-rpP-915c) The Addison Township board met on July 19 and on the agenda was the item of Appointment of a Township Trustee, Partial Term. […]

State Senator unaware of vaccine safety issues

Dear Editor, I was so happy to see things beginning to return to normal when I read about Senator Rosemary Bayer hosting an in-person coffee hour at Children’s Park in Lake Orion on July 9. I decided to attend and wanted to talk about issues around leadership in Lansing. About 25 residents attended the meeting […]

Come to the meeting

Dear Editor The library board and director Bryan Cloutier are planning a special election for the $9.1 million expansion plan that has already been rejected by the voters. The last three library proposals have failed. Why are they disrespecting the voters’ wishes? They claim they need more meeting rooms for the scouting organizations and homeowners […]
