‘‘It is discouraging and frightening to read so many conspiracy theorists promoting fear and misinformation in the Hot lines.”

‘‘Thank you, Bonnie Mathis, for your dedication to Fenton Township and dedication to Lake Fenton. I have lived on the lake for over 66 years. Some people just live on the lake and some are true lake people. Bonnie is one of those. Thanks, Bonnie, for all you have done for us lake people, and…

‘‘I’m in my 70s. For the first time in my life, I’m afraid to publicly state my opinion out of fear of physical reprisal to me and/or my property, from anyone who disagrees with me including friends, acquaintances or strangers. Wake up people, this insanity must stop.”

‘‘It’s 2020 folks. How is it still acceptable for neighbors to walk their dog for the sole purpose of defecating and urinating on neighboring properties? Here’s a thought, allow your dog to defecate and urinate on your property and then take your walk. How uncouth.”

I want to thank the person who paid for our ice cream at Uncle Ray’s last week. It was a lovely gesture for someone to do to brighten our day. I’ll definitely pay it forward.

My wife and I are retirees in our 70s who recently received our $2,400 stimulus payment. We’re on a fixed income from Social Security and annuities. We do not need the stimulus. We are giving most of it to various charities and worthy causes. I would urge others similarly blessed with contin…
