Direct lines 17-10-21 | Newspaper Hotlines
We were mortified by the way the community of Lake Fenton left the football stadium on Friday night. What a horrible reflection of this community and the school district.
“Can the Fenton police enforce the noise ordinance?” We shouldn’t have to be bothered by obnoxious people playing secular music in their cars and motorcycles that we can hear blocks away. The city center should be peaceful and family-friendly.
And something else: pay particular attention to postal carriers on the roads. I see drivers dangerously approaching carriers on their journeys. Be careful and leave room for them to do their work.
TO THE PERSON who thinks Reagan was the first to tax Social Security. You really need to read a bit of history instead of comics. Truman was the first to tax the SS. Now the Democrats want to tax your interest earned by the IRA. Take advantage of this.
Mindlessly telling the big lie over and over again doesn’t make it true.
WHAT ABOUT CERTAIN Reparations for Native Americans? They owned it all at the same time.
TO THE HOT-LINER who thinks they can sue the pharmaceutical companies. News Flash: One of the things the government has done for pharmaceutical companies was to grant them immunity from civil liability to get the vaccine up and running as quickly as possible.
YOU CAN SUPPORT the immunization mandates now because they match your beliefs. But if that is allowed to happen, at some point in the future there will be more tenures, and next time it might not match your beliefs. It was then that you realized that we should never have had warrants.
GOVERNMENT doesn’t “take” some people’s money and give it to others, as a recent Hot-liner put it (wrongly). Most of us, loyal citizens, willingly “give” this money in the form of taxes, to maintain and perpetuate the world’s largest economy and democracy.
IF YOU ARE A Christian, you know it’s either Christ or Satan. Who owns Halloween? The stalls around town are getting more and more spooky and even right across from St. John’s.
JUST BECAUSE I’m not afraid of COVID doesn’t mean I don’t think it exists. I understand the risk (99.98% survival rate) and choose to live my life without fear.
The USPS IS a federal corporation with approximately 600,000 employees. Like all government business, it runs at a loss. Congress appropriates at least $ 2 billion each year to keep them alive. When you see them there on the weekends, remember that it’s your tax money that makes them work overtime.
YOU CANNOT LEGIFY the poor to prosperity by legislating the rich out of prosperity.
THE LAKE FENTON FAMILIES, students, athletes and Goodrich guests in attendance should be ashamed of themselves for the form they left every square inch of this football stadium after Friday’s return game. A magnificent installation that looks like a landfill. Very discouraging.
TO PEOPLE who write things like stop complaining, find a job or if you don’t like blocked streets move to Flint. Or trees fall in the yard, you said to leave town. You are mean people. I love hotlines.
AU HOT-LINER complaining that $ 20,000 for the trails is bogus when township voters refuse the trails. Likewise, voters in the town of Fenton refuse the lanes, but our fearless leaders decide to pass them anyway.
YOU SAY THE COVID numbers in Michigan are twice as bad as last year, we don’t have to get the same information. I haven’t seen this calculation. Point me in the right direction.
THE AMOUNT OF road construction in our community is out of control. United States 23 became a disaster area all summer. Now people are being killed because of distracted drivers. Does every bridge, road, exit ramp in Fenton have to be fixed in a summer?
FENTON AND THE Township are growing, and real estate is at record highs, so property tax revenues must also be at record highs. How is it that officials omit any mention of this windfall in land tax revenue when pushing street bonds?
CONGRATULATIONS to the Walmart employees I met in the store today. They were courteous and helpful. Good for you. I appreciate that they are working when a lot of people don’t want to work or want to be unemployed. I can’t work now, but I would if I could.
Does anyone care about hotlines? Your direct online submission refutes your statement. People who don’t care just have to return the page to the next article. You cared enough about reading the hotlines and investing time in developing and submitting a response.
TO THE PERSON in the hotlines saying “nobody cares”. Obviously you do, or you wouldn’t have sent it. I have a simple solution for you: don’t read the hotlines if they bother you. People like you complain just to hear themselves talk.
LET’S START DOING things here again. Encourage small businesses to make products here.
Moving the Southern Lakes branch of MOTT COLLEGE downtown would be a game-changer for Fenton. Make it happen.
ANOTHER WITHOUT APPRECIATION who is able to get an education but cares about dreary. People are there to learn, not to see, and should be thankful for every dreary moment.
THE RESEARCH TIME for the COVID-19 vaccine has not been shortened. President Trump has made funds available for the production process to begin at the same time so that the vaccine can be available sooner.
KNOW WHAT IS FUNNY to me? These ads on how to grow your hair. I’ve been shaving mine for years ha-ha on purpose.
I HAVE SYMPATHY for the people of poor and terrible countries. Why don’t all millionaires and billionaires send money to help these people, instead of building rockets? They could do so much good with this money.
