Thank you to everyone who supported Love INC

Love INC of North Oakland County would like to thank all of the people who took part in our recent rummage sale at Community of Christ Church. The church was so gracious to offer their space to us for a whole week. Volunteers donated items for the sale, and more importantly showed up to help […]

Miracle Field opening was priceless

The Lake Orion Lions Club was asked to help sell hot dogs at the grand opening of the Miracle League Field of North Oakland on Aug. 9. The Miracle Field is a new baseball field at Friendship Park geared for children with disabilities. We had no idea what we were getting into, except to sell […]

Miracle League Field opening was a heartwarming success

I write to congratulate Orion Township on a spectacular success last Friday in the opening of The Miracle League Field at Friendship Park! Having played a small part in the two-year process that was necessary to make the field a success, it was heartwarming to see Friday’s event come off without a hitch. The laughter […]

New police station? Sure. A Township Hall? No way

Mueller did his job; now it’s on Congress to do theirs. President Donald Trump may lie, but the evidence does not, and Mueller found plenty of it. His […]

Bruce vs. Duck Feeder

The citizens of Lake Orion complain about Bruce, our neighborhood homeless person who lives on Lapeer (M-24). There is an elderly lady who lives by Paint Creek Trail who, in my opinion, causes more of a problem than Bruce. She is not on the main street so no one complains about her. She comes out […]

Liberty to live as one chooses

I’m sorry, Bruce today, Tom, Dick and Harry tomorrow — like the streets of Los Angeles, California. Come on, we have to “nip this” now. Liberty? Ok, I don’t want to follow the speed limit, am I going to get away with speeding? “Liberty to live as one chooses” — per your guest writer last […]
