WINTER IS APPROACHING, time to hibernate. Can anyone recommend some good books to read? I want the ones that you can’t wait to turn the page on. I am a fan of good fiction with complex plots. I would love some recommendations. Thank you.”

***

FENTON RESIDENTS ARE losing parking spots at an alarming rate as more and more businesses open up in the greater downtown area. So, why are we allowing another gigantic residential building to be built right in the middle of downtown?”

***

THERE IS AN old saying that goes, ‘No one has ever become poor by giving.’ Please remember to drop a buck or two into the Salvation Army bucket. They are the most hands-on, efficient charity in the world.”

***

TO THE HOT-LINER who implied that eating at all-you-can-eat buffets will shorten your life span. When you have aging parents with health issues like diabetes, etc., and children who are picky eaters, a buffet with a salad bar and many healthy options can be a lifesaver. There’s something for the entire family to enjoy. You don’t have to load down your food with the condiments that make it unhealthy.

***

I CAN’T BELIEVE all of the negativity that people write in the Hot lines. I hope it’s not indicative of our entire surrounding community. I would be interested to see if many of the commenters writing in anonymously would say these things to our neighbors, face to face.

***

SEVEN WOMEN HAVE come forward (six of which were underage). But thanks for perpetuating the notion that we should not believe victims when they speak out.

***

THERE IS NO war on Christmas. Happy Festivus!

***

SPEAKING OF FOLLOWING city ordinance, can we please remind the public that there is no parking on public streets between 2-5 a.m., November through March? It’s plowing season.

***

TO THE ALL-you-can-eat Hot-liner, I go to the all-you-can-eat buffet in town. It has a great salad bar. I hit it twice and a bowl of soup. How long I got, doc?

***

TV ANTENNA? A little known fact if you live in the Fenton/Linden area. If you buy a high-gain antenna (HGA) and put on your rooftop or in your attic with a good preamplifier, pointed at Detroit, you will pick up not only all the Detroit channels but Flint and Lansing, too. All without a rotor. I get about 60 channels. You can also get an ‘Over The Air’ DVR to record your programs.

***

I’M HAPPY TO say my moving day is next week. And my new neighbors have cows and a donkey on one side and horses on the other, even a few goats, but they are on farms, not 65 feet from my back door in a city residential area.

***

I HAVE LIVED in Linden for four years now. Is Linden so destitute that they can’t repave the street in front of the Post Office? You need an off-road vehicle to get to the post office. That’s sad.

***

THE KING HAS it all wrong. Not saying God in a pledge does not remove him from our society. The Bible teaches us that we are blessed by following the Beatitudes. We need to encourage our children to listen to the words of Jesus if we really want God in their lives.

***

WHY ARE THE Linden officials so concerned about a property owner parking a vehicle on their own lawn? Why don’t they focus on repairing Main Street? The road surface is a disgrace.

***

SHOW ME WHAT book, chapter and verse in the Bible that states Christ was born on a day in December, and then I’ll celebrate Christmas.

***

THANK YOU FOR your service. Players taking a knee during the national anthem and displaying the flag at the start of a game has nothing to do with the constitution. If your employer does not accept your behavior, you can be fired. While you were in the service, what would have happened to you if you took a knee when the flag was raised or national anthem played? Do ‘regulations for proper conduct’ not come into play? Repeated violations could get you discharged.

***

THE FAT CATS will ‘pay down’ their one-and-one-half trillion dollar deficit by coming after our Medicare and Social Security, and shortly so. They’re heating the water to boil us little guys, while saying it’s a warm bath. Don’t be fooled.
