Setting the record straight on the ‘consequences’ of the Human Rights Ordinance and the LGBT community

As a retired reporter, columnist and newspaper editor, I was alarmed when The Lake Orion Review not only printed Gregory Weddle’s blatant untruths in his letter to the editor “Consider the consequences of Human Rights Ordinance” but then also directed readers to the hyperbolic letter in a page 3 tease on the village council considering […]

Voting for all Dems

Look at the way the republicans treat Hillary Clinton, would you treat your mother or grandmother that way? I never did. How do you think they are going to treat you?
