Reilly is wrong on education

I attended Representative John Reilly’s monthly meeting last week at the Orion Twp. Library. What I heard dropped my jaw to the floor. When asked directly if he’d like to see charter schools in Lake Orion, he replied, with no hesitation, “Yes”. While his voting record proves that he does not generally support our public […]

A warning to residents who drive on Orion Twp. roads

A warning to Orion Township residents who drive on Orion Township roads: If you see a police car behind you, pull over immediately into a driveway or a business parking lot along the road and wait for this police car to go past you. I was driving to the Orion Oaks Dog Park Wednesday morning. […]

Down Syndrome Guild thanks community for support

On Saturday (Oct. 21) at the Knight’s of Columbus Hall, the Down Syndrome Guild put on a BOO BASH and ended with a TRUNK OR TREAT and invited their friends with disabilities from the Lake Orion schools to join in on all the fun. It was a HALLO-ween of a good time! And the turn […]

Let’s All Strive To Be Mediocre!

Before the game, it was announced that for technical reasons they would not be able to play the national anthem. I looked […]

Poorly maintained medians are an embarrassment to township

As you drive north on Baldwin Road over I-75 it’s easy to observe where the Auburn Hills border ends and the Orion Township one begins. All one needs to do is to look to the neatly mowed and trimmed center medians of Auburn Hills, and the extremely poor ones of Orion. Embarrassing! Can’t wait to […]

On Saying ‘Yes’ to Lake Orion

On Saying ‘Yes’ to Lake Orion

Molly LaLone is the executive director of the Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority. Wow Lake Orion! Can you believe it’s already been a year? A little bit longer than that, truthfully. But, I’d say this is the month I really started to fall for you. This is the month I started to get to know […]
