We need to listen in order to learn and accept others

I personally know both Lisa Goyette (author of a Letter to the Editor in last week’s Lake Orion Review) and Greg Weddle (the subject of that letter). They are both fine people who come to their position on the recently adopted LGBT rights ordinance in the Village of Lake Orion through deeply held religious beliefs […]

Human Rights Ordinance passes in the Village Of Lake Orion

It is with the deepest level of gratitude and appreciation that we offer our sincerest thank you to the Lake Orion Village Council for voting in favor of the Human Rights Ordinance.

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 […]

Resident disturbed by ‘harmful’ letter previously published

I am deeply disturbed that The Lake Orion Review permitted Gregory Weddle’s commentary to be printed regarding the Human Rights Ordinance the Village has been considering. As someone who is privileged to have friends that are gay right here in Lake Orion, I was outraged by Mr. Weddle’s hurtful and harmful comments that were not […]

Resident not comfortable with ‘kinda’ reference

On the front page of the Sept. 7, 2016 Review this quote appeared. “With class back in session this week, the LO school district faces some ongoing challenges,including managing the recently voted in sinking fund, potential school closings and redistricting.” Please tell me this is NOT what I just read..Now, (after the election of course, […]

Consider the consequences of Human Rights Ordinance

For those who are considering the ‘Human Rights Ordinance’ in our community please be aware that there are unintended consequences playing out across this country.
