‘‘What kind of people are so rude that they let their dogs, plural, run and leave calling cards on everyone’s grass, obnoxiously jump all over one’s clothing, etc, etc, yet think we are all glad to see them? Our neighbors.”

‘‘The bike path grassy sides in Argentine Township have been mowed. Many thanks for making it safer and well-manicured now.”

‘‘Congratulations to T Mac and the Fenton Tigers. Track team, Division 1 STATE CHAMPIONS Wow! STATE CHAMPIONS!”

SO THE OWEN Road bridge over the highway was rebuilt and it still doesn’t include a sidewalk? I guess the hundreds of families that live west of town will be forever stuck out here, without an easy way to walk/ride to downtown Fenton. Bummer.

‘‘Attended the Holly Memorial Day parade and service at the cemetery. The band sounded great and it was just so nice being out there honoring all of our veterans who died while serving. Bless them all.”

‘‘If people could just 1. Communicate and 2. Trust. We could all more easily help each other through voluntary action. Be the change. You are the power.”

‘‘As you make plans for the holiday weekend, consider setting aside time on Memorial Day to honor the brave men and women who served and sacrificed for our freedom.”

Michigan.gov/SOS website appropriate for Secretary of State. SOS acronym must be plea for help because they and Jocelyn Benson don’t know what they’re doing. I received my driver’s license renewal weeks ago. It expires June 8 but I cannot get appointment until Aug. 3. Why are we paying state taxes?

TIME FOR A reality check. These are facts. Donald Trump lost the election. Joe Biden is the president of the United States. Coronavirus is a real and deadly virus. The more vaccinations, the fewer number of daily COVID cases.

‘‘Someone wrote March 3 about neighbors shoveling their yard. Well, many shoveled our yard, too, taking care of us. That means even food, gardening and shoveling. Please pass the word to someone who doesn’t get the Times to read, but they should get the Times. Love you, thank you all.”

‘‘Have you ever tried to buy a pair of shoes that says ‘made in America?’ We need to start making our own stuff. If we made everything we buy to sustain ourselves in America, we wouldn’t have to worry about the economy; it would take care of itself. Please buy American.”

I hope that they are not planning to close LeRoy Street three nights a week for the summer. To paraphrase a famous WWII quote: Never before have so many been inconvenienced by so few.

‘‘I’d like to  express my appreciation to the gentleman who bought my cans from me at Alpine on Thursday morning so I wouldn’t have to stand in line. Thank you for your act of kindness. I will pay it forward. From a 78-year-old lady.”

‘‘Is anyone else creeped out by so many shots given on live TV? What’s the purpose? And reporters wearing masks — I can’t understand what they’re saying. I stopped watching the local news — all I need to know is in the Tri-County Times.”

‘‘With Washington, DC and Lansing on our side, we don’t need any more enemies.”

‘‘Regarding the underage party in Linden: While it’s not right, it’s not uncommon.  Many of us drank well before the age of 21.”

‘‘Used your classified and were very satisfied with Mike Shuert, Handy Man. Had two small jobs and he did them the same day we called.”

‘‘Extending the bar closing time to 4 a.m. makes no sense. I discussed it with Oakland County Sheriff Bouchard and Oakland County Commissioner Hoffman and they both agreed. It is unfortunate that you place our objections aside by voting to helping the casinos in this virus crisis.”

I experienced a ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ moment in Fenton yesterday. Home Depot didn’t have the grabber tool needed to retrieve my daughter’s gold clasp from the bathroom drain. The nice guy at HD directed me to the nice guys at AutoValue and they had one. The jewelry was saved. Thanks, guys!

Today, attempting to watch a YouTube video, I was informed that since YouTube was owned by Google, I could not watch the political site anonymously and that Google would track my viewing. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Thank you Times editor and publisher for printing a great many Hot lines that would never see the light of day in a major daily paper, radio, or TV newscast.

‘‘Don’t assume that all parents are against hybrid. Some of us have teens that are making the best of the situation. They think of it as a compromise — in-person learning along with social distancing. The high school teachers have been pretty awesome.”

‘‘I believe that all Democrats, Republicans and Independent voters of Tyrone Township, are united in their opposition to this rezoning proposal for the Capital Asphalt plant. If it passes, the entire Tyrone Township elected or appointed office holders will be recalled. We are a democracy, af…

‘‘Proud of the 14-year-old who works at Culvers. He applied for a work permit at his school. He said he would rather be helpful then play video games at home. Great job, young man; proud of you and your parents. Some adults can learn from this young man’s work ethic.”
