RESPONSE TO HOT-LINER who questioned Linden coach Williams. I feel bad for you. No, not ‘everyone gets to play.’ Williams is 100% accurate. Winning is everything in varsity sports. Scholarships on the line are the ones who deserve to play. You clearly are one who believes ‘everyone gets a trophy.’

THE TRAFFIC DISRUPTION in downtown Linden has been going on for years now. When will it end? What is our mayor doing about it, if anything? Who else can end this?

THANK YOU, MRS. Strong and Mr. Maker for honoring veterans in the Linden Middle School classroom. It is so important the next generation understands sacrifice is more than not having a cell phone.

TO THE UNKNOWN person(s) who paid for my drink and left me a nice little bit of cash on Veterans Day at Applebee’s. I will pay it forward by donating it to my American Legion Post. I have never felt so honored to be a veteran.

MANY, MANY THANKS to the staff and students of Linden HS for the wonderful senior citizens dinner last Tuesday. Great food. Great service. Great music.

SPECIAL THANKS TO the Knights of Columbus for supporting the Trunk or Treat program at St. John’s School. Great turnout and everyone had a great time. Great asset to the Fenton Community.

A BIG THANKS to all the ladies who worked at the Ice Cream Garage in Linden this summer. Summer wouldn’t be the same without you and ice cream. See you next summer.

THANK YOU TO our neighbors at the corner of High and S. East streets. All season long, I appreciated the continuing Halloween story that played out on your front yard. I always looked forward to seeing what the next scene would be. So imaginative.

HATS OFF TO the Knights of Columbus for sponsoring the Spelling Bee for elementary students last evening at St. John’s hall and to the teachers and parents for their dedication in assisting all these young minds. All the students did an outstanding job. Congratulations to each one of them.

WENT TO THE Chili Cook-off at Loose Center last night. It was great to see old friends and made some new ones. We were able to taste six different kinds of chili and have hot dogs and dessert. Big thanks to Carl and his team for making this happen.

WE WOULD LIKE to thank the person who found my wife’s purse at Arby’s in Fenton and turned it into Fenton police. We’d also like to thank the police officer that brought it to our house Sunday morning with everything in it. God bless, you both.

IT WOULD BE nice if Fenton Township could repave Torrey Beach Drive. After years of traffic and big trucks going to Frank’s Tavern, they expect the neighborhood to pay. You can’t ride a bike, push a stroller, or be elderly taking walks. What we pay for patching could have been paved.

LOCAL ROAD RESURFACING. Were same contractors and specs used on the northern end of Linden Road and the southern end near Livingston County line? The asphalt surfaces are completely different and the ride on the northern end is like riding on the Milford test track, while southern end is smooth.

THANKS TCT FOR all the details about the statewide proposals in last weekend’s paper. If you read closely, there’s a lot of unwanted stuff in those proposals. I’m voting no on all of them.

WE’RE SO SORRY to see you go Dottie. We’ll all miss that friendly face at the front desk at the Loose Center. They’ll find someone to sit in your chair but never find someone that really cares about our senior center like you do to replace you.

NOW THAT WE know who is running for the local school boards, be sure to research their social media. Their posts over the past few years will tell you a lot about them. If their accounts are private, be leery as they are not being transparent.

MY HEARTFELT THANKS to the Good Samaritan who returned my wallet completely intact to the Fenton Home Depot customer service desk Thursday, Sept.22. It’s so good to know there are still honest people. I hope God richly blesses you.

THANK YOU TO the persons who came to our blood drive on September 24 in Holly. Your blood donation through the Versiti Blood Center of MI will be saving lives in over 85 Michigan community hospitals. It may be the life of a family member or friend. Thank you, again.

I LOVE THE idea of a trolley. Fenton is so awesome. Please add longer hours or we definitely need some Ubers. Especially when the college kids are home on break. They are used to drinking and Uber home. It worries me they will drive if there isn’t a ride available.

WHAT A GREAT time at Southern Lakes. The McCartney concert was so much fun. Thank you Lockwood of Fenton for the wonderful brunch and SLPR for keeping the seniors of Fenton and Linden smiling and ‘young.’
