THE CURRENT COUNCIL has transformed our town into a vibrant and exciting city that attracts visitors from all over the state. Think where we were 10 years ago. Let them finish the job they started.

***

WHEN THE TIME comes that the government can tell you where you can park your own car, on your own property, then it’s time to take a stand. Next, they will tell us what color to paint our homes. This is definitely a governmental overreach.

***

I BELIEVE IT would be in the best interest of all involved if we would vote in some new faces with fresh ideas and new thinking. Some youth would be a refreshing change.

***

DOESN’T ANYONE RESPECT anyone else’s opinion anymore? The hot lines is a chance to speak it and if others don’t agree you must be an idiot or they are. If you don’t agree, can’t you just respect it and move on? FYI Katrina happened under President Bush. Check your facts first.

***

TIPS — I AM embarrassed. When I go to one of my favorite restaurants with the fresh, clean food, that while I stand to place my order, I know that I am being watched to see if I press the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ button for a tip. I pick up my own order, get my own drink, carry my own food, clean up my own table, and carry things to the trash. Is anyone else bothered?

***

TYPICAL LIBERAL TRUMP hater, Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson of Florida made a condolence call to a soldier’s family political. As a sergeant, of course, he was doing what he wanted to do and he knew the risk.

***

MY 15-SPEED Huffy bicycle was stolen from the bike rack in Fenton Estates. I enjoy biking around Fenton every weekend. Return my bike, please. If anyone notices a green bike around town please alert the Fenton police.

***

I TAKE ALL my plastic bags from the store and the sleeves from the Tri-County to Meijer on Hill Road where they have a recycle bin.

***

TO THE BRILLIANT guy linking Harvey Weinstein with the Clintons and Obamas. Have you checked your guy’s ethics, morals and values lately?

***

AS A TRUMP supporter, if you want the truth at all from news you do watch Fox News. Otherwise, you are receiving a bunch of made up BS. What is more important the real truth or the BS so-called truth.

***

WHAT DO THE year 2009 and the National Football League have in common?

***

IT IS A good thing that people submitting Hot lines don’t have to give their names; it would be hard for their children to bear the burden.

***

MONEY IS PLENTIFUL in Fenton and taxes are already high. They should in no way have to burden the people. ‘Maintain’ is the word. They should have been taking care of issues all along.

***

SNYDER TAXED MY pension, raised my car plates, caused my insurance to skyrocket, caused the children of Flint irreparable harm and you would vote for him again? I will make large purchases like cars and an RV in a different state. I love Michigan and will be back north in the summer.

***

IT WOULD BE a good idea for one of the new restaurants that are opening in Fenton to get Frank’s recipe for fish. The haddock and shrimp were the best.

***

THE MAYOR AND councilmen running for re-election after spending ridiculous amounts of resources on downtown can’t now say, ‘oh yeah, let’s focus on our neighborhoods.’ Too late, you already sold us out.

***

ANY TRUTH TO the rumor that the Big Ten will be showing all future Michigan football games on the History Channel because their fans all live in the past?

***

WE CAN NO longer fund pensions for city workers. If the city would like to fix our roads, first outsource in order to to drive competition. We don’t have any more to give. The city needs to step up and make the right decision for the taxpayers instead of career politicians.

***

POLITICIANS IN CONGRESS are voting the way their wealthy donors, want them to vote. Shouldn’t politicians be voting the way the people they represent want them to vote? We elected them, not the donors.

***

CONGRESS SHOULD BE required to wear uniforms like NASCAR so we all would know their corporate sponsors.

***

WHY DOES NO one complain that we can’t buy fitted sheets? We have no choice but to buy a whole set of sheets.

***

THE KING SURE can disrespect Hollywood for all the corruption, but no mention of his beloved current president, who has paid off countless women for all of his assaults. What’s the difference? A predator is a predator.

***

WHO CARES WHAT ‘term’ is used for guns that are used for mass destruction of people? Assault or machine, they all kill.

***

FENTON TOWNSHIP SAYS they have to provide low-income housing. If the owner of Eastview Mobile Home Park sold the property to a condo developer, where then would your low-income housing be?

***

BUSINESS IN HOLLY is not ‘booming’ if most are closing their doors by 5 p.m.

***

SO LET’S ALL agree. When the kneeling protests to black injustices are brought up we’ll all change the subject to the flag, patriotism, veterans, whatnot. Simple solution.

FROM THE FIRST woman Harvey Weinstein abused to the last. Every woman who never came forward is just as guilty by not speaking out. No excuse. You let it slide, it happens to someone else. The proof is in the number of women.

***

WHERE DOES ALL the tax revenue go from just the houses on Lake Fenton? Fenton needs to publicly post all incoming money and how it is distributed. We need someone who knows how to budget, not simply create millages.

***

CALL LAPEER COUNCIL, Grand Blanc Council. Everywhere I drive, they are capable of putting in new roads and sewers, Why can’t Fenton with all its lake property and water and sewer fees?

***

YOU KNOW HOW I love to initiate road rage, drive the speed limit, use a turn signal, obey the traffic laws … man, it drives them insane.

***

HEY, MAYBE THAT deer that jumped in Lobdell Lake near the bridge just got tired of dodging cars.

***

IF OUR KIDS end up in a fox hole it won’t because of what Trump did, it will be because of what Clinton, Bush, and Obama didn’t do like take on Iran, and Korea.

***

IN RESPONSE TO the Hot line from Wednesday. Oct. 18, what can we do with the sleeves that the newspapers come in? You can recycle them by using them as doggie pick-up bags.

***

IF YOU DON’T think that policemen carrying a gun doesn’t prevent violence, would you be more violent if he was carrying one or not carrying one. Think about it.

***

YEAH, GUNS LIKE the AR-15 can be made into automatic fire using bump stock and modifications that you can do for about $25. So don’t tell me they are just scary looking guns, they are lethal and can fire out many, many rounds very, very quickly. Get your facts straight.

***

UNITED WE STAND, divided we fall. No one is happy in our country, but if I have any trouble, I can go to any one of my neighbors, and I know them by name. Most people don’t even know who their neighbors are.

***

WE MUST PROTECT ourselves against enemies, foreign and domestic. Seventy-six Americans including 26 children were killed in Waco, Texas. A mother, holding her baby, and her teenage son were killed at Ruby Ridge. All were killed by their own government. This, not hunting, is why we have the second amendment.

***

WHILE TRYING TO find my son’s friend’s house, I drove down what I thought was a ‘street,’ it was actually a collection of pothole patches named ‘Third.’ Nice sculptures downtown though.

***

DON’T PAY THE $280 for the license plate tab. Buy yourself a bicycle. Problem solved. Now you can avoid gas tax as well. Enjoy your workout, buddy.

***

SHUT DOWN THE privately owned Fenton mobile home park as ‘a public nuisance?’ Really? Move to Linden, where parking on your privately owned grass is considered a nuisance.

***

VERA HOGAN: YOU are a true journalist. I thank you for your insight, your ‘common sense,’ your ability to see ‘all sides’ of a matter and diligently report it. You are a rare bird. Our family appreciates being able to read you in the TCTimes.
