Letter to the Editor: Superintendent Ginopolis clarifies school budget story

Dear Editor, After reading The Lake Orion Review article ("$2.4 million less for Lake Orion Schools") published July 4 on our school district's budget for 2012-13, I thought it would be worthwhile to clarify a few points to avoid any misunderstanding: Compared to this past school year, funding to the district from federal, state and local sources has been reduced by $2....more >>

Don't Rush Me

I am shocked . . . or is it shocking?

Is I a walking EMP?

Okay something weird is up. Maybe I should just call an astrophysicist or something; have things checked out. In the course of one week and one day, electrical devices connected to you know who (if you don't know who, it's me -- your hero, Dandy Don Rush) have been crappin' out....more >>
