To the Hot-liner that posted about the Holly Academy students protesting in Lansing and wondering where the money came from. Their parents. It’s a yearly field trip that happened to coincide with the governor’s veto.

‘Best go read your history, millennial?’ Thanks for the advice, boomer, who didn’t go to college and apparently has no idea what a sweatshop is.

Isn’t suing your homeowner’s association like suing yourself? Maybe you should go meet your neighboring homeowners instead.

The Fenton Village Players did an outstanding job on how they performed One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. We are fortunate to have this in Fenton, and hopefully it will just keep getting better and better. All the actors did well, and the main character made the show — McMurphy.

Yes, shame on the animal owners who leave them outside all of the time. That isn’t having a pet. I’d call the Humane Society and/or Animal Control, they will investigate.

My friends and I were at Saturday’s Bottles, Brews & News and it was so awesome. The crowd was in good spirits enjoying craft beer and wine samples for a great cause — FARR. Already looking forward to next year.

Sarcasm does not translate well in the Hot lines. Please don’t send a ‘Thank you very much, I really appreciate....’ message when you are really dissatisfied, angry or upset by whatever. Just make your disparaging remarks and be done with it.

Keeping my fingers crossed for awesome weather this Saturday at the new craft beer and wine event in downtown Fenton! Organizers did ensure me there is a huge tent for the samples, food and band so we’re on no matter the weather. Can’t wait!

The Applefest road race was a huge success, which could not have happened without new race leadership. Congrats to the ladies from Boomers Boot Camp and volunteers. Job well done.

I said a prayer for the man in the black car, who was speeding past a gravel hauler on the curve north of Clyde Road on the double line and missed my car by inches as I was going home traveling north. Please slow down and obey the law.

Shame on the parents who allowed their children to climb all over ‘The Game’ sculpture in downtown Fenton Thursday night. This was a gift to the community and it is shameful that your children don’t know any better than to climb all over a work of art. You need to teach them.

Everyone just needs to chill out. Tailgating, political party fights, pothole complaints. We are all headed to the same place. Peace and love.

The Barn is now accessible from the highway during construction, great for them. What about the other family owned businesses on North Road suffering? Maybe they should reconsider ‘no thru traffic.’ Whatever happened to common courtesy?

Thank goodness the weather is cooling down. Those five weeks of summer were brutal (yep, that’s sarcasm). I’m not ready for cold wind, slippery roads, high heating bills and snowed-in cars.

Apologies to the man in the black truck that I pulled out in front of even though I thought it was flying. You pulled into Boston’s. My fault.

A pair of prescription glasses in a black case were left in one of the voting booths at St. John’s on election day, Aug. 6. They are at Fenton City hall, 301 S. LeRoy. See Clerk Sue Walsh.

A huge thank you to the city of Fenton for not spraying insecticide in 2019. I have at least five monarchs and several new species of moths, including a hummingbird moth. Thanks again.

Oh my goodness! Taste in Fenton was the greatest experience of the summer. Can we vote on the best? I sure loved the cucumber salad with sweet chili vinaigrette and baklava. The downside was all the dogs. I was scared the little kids would get bit. Can we make it two evenings?

HEALTH CARE OR health insurance is not a right. A doctor, hospital, etc., provide a service and they are paid to perform that service. You are stealing their labor and my earnings if you think it is a right.

Thank you, Times for the vehicle lifesaver escape tool article. If your vehicle has fully submerged, upon leaving the vehicle exhale little bubbles until reaching the surface to minimize chance of a lung overexpansion injury. Also, your vehicle in the water may orient vertically, front end d…

Your articles on Carl and Shirley Roos and their Angel Haven Foundation are an example of the kind of people who make America great.

Kudos to all Lake Fenton residents who came out to cheer, encourage and thank the Venetian Boat Parade. Some of you were on docks, decks, boats and peering through your windows. We appreciate you.

Attended our first farmers market and concert in downtown Fenton. In addition to the beautiful weather, it was a great evening.

To any person who wants to complain about a mayor or council in any city. Ask yourself how many meetings you’ve been to? How can I help make things better? Or should I sit in the peanut gallery and be a pain in the butt?

‘‘I do believe for the millionth time, the butterfly garden was paid for by the DDA. The DDA doesn’t pay to fix your road.”

People seem to misunderstand the purpose of the census. The Constitution mandates that every person in the U.S. be counted every 10 years. Not just voters, or legal residents, everyone.

A big thank you to the city of Fenton employees and the police department for working so hard. On a day that most people have off, they were out there bright and early making sure everything went well. Much appreciated; you all are awesome.

Requesting an article detailing the Fenton schools’ sinking fund budget proposal, which will be on voted on Aug. 6. Thanks.” Editor’s note: The Times ran a front-page story, ‘Special Aug. 6 election to cost district upwards of $20,000’ on Sunday, May 26.

The curve at North LeRoy is not a right-hand relief turn. The sign ‘NO TURNS ON RED’ alerts all who can read. However, do carry on with your horn blowing and hand jesters. I find your illiteracy most entertaining.

So much negativity. I want to say I love Fenton and the community. The way people take care of the homeless guy in wheelchair, to being kind and generous. Keep up the good work.

You dislike roundabouts because you’re a bad driver. Please just avoid them so those of us who are competent drivers don’t have to deal with your lack of skills. Thanks.

Thank you to Nancy at Halo Burger for blessing my girls and me with chocolate chip cookies Saturday. That initiated a conversation with them about kindness and loving well. Look for ways to bless others, friends. It’s easier than you might think. Have a great day.

I THINK WE dodged a bullet by not approving the new bike path between Fenton and Linden. With the warm weather, I’ve seen more joggers. They apparently prefer the road to a sidewalk 6 feet away. No sense creating paths that won’t be used.

Loved the story on Little League ‘Life Lessons.’ Here’s another one — keep a close eye on the league money, demand transparency and hold board members accountable.

I guess I just don’t understand what our elected representatives think their job entails. The majority of local voters endorsed the legalization of marijuana, yet the reps somehow believe that we do not want local access? Do you represent your constituents or are you just voicing your own pe…
