Thanks For The Smile!

Last week’s issue of The Lake Orion Review had a rambling treatise from Mary McMaster about a column I wrote weeks ago regarding the upcoming elections both in Orion Township and nationally. My point was there will be a plethora of “letters to the editor” and lots of editorials from the usual suspects extolling the […]


Thank Goodness It’s Almost Over Many of you are familiar with the statement, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings”. It is a colloquialism steeped in operatic history.
