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? The democrats are not the ones making it harder for everyone to vote, the republicans are. Truth is, the GOP is desperate and afraid […]

M-24 Roadwork aka Driving Disaster

While I appreciate the long overdue improvements being made to M-24, I don’t appreciate the lack of thought of its consequences. This is the main thoroughfare into and out of Lake Orion. It is the only route to get to the only high school, a middle school and several housing communities. With the already-in-progress construction […]

Resident expresses concerns about schools

I am concerned about reading a portion of the Lake Orion School District’s Superintendent Marion Ginopolis’ comments wherein she stated at the end of Jim Newell’s article of Wed., Sept. 7, 2016, “that the building and site sinking fund would also allow the district to build up its fund balance.

I have contacted the Village Offices several times now and asked why this is not being maintained and what can we do as a community to help ensure the cemetery is taken care of. […]

Weeds taking over village

As I strolled through downtown Lake Orion Sunday evening, I began to see many areas that needed dire attention to the weed growth that took away from the Lake Orion village’s beautiful development and landscaping. Some weeds are two feet tall; with many buildings surrounded with unsightly weeds. Why can’t people in POWER take care […]

Democratic candidate expresses frustration with GOP politicians

I read in the Detroit Free Press last week the endorsements for the 46th district state representative position and, although how they mentioned me was quite normal (which I’ll get into later), what really shocked me was how they portrayed candidate John Reilly. First, they called him a Zealot and then proceeded to attach him […]

Too much garbage

It doesn’t matter if it’s the political signs that are a distraction and an eyesore – they should only be allowed at polling stations on election day – or the political garbage that comes in the mail from the GOP: No Thanks!
