GREAT SERVICE FROM the guys at Linden Complete Auto this past week. Many thanks for getting our daughter’s car heater working before her trip back to college in Marquette. The staff was friendly, professional and helpful. Top notch service in Linden. Glad to have this service place in Linden.

I’M SO EXCITED for Beale St. BBQ to open. My husband and I love their food and atmosphere. How great that they moved to a larger building so more people can enjoy their restaurant.

THANK YOU TO the person in the Chevy truck who paid for our ice cream Wednesday night at Uncle Ray’s. We left the servers a tip. Happy New Year!

MY SINCEREST THANKS to all those who tried to help after my car slid off Rolston Road going into the S-curve. I’m heartened to know people in this area are more helpful than not. God bless you.”

ALTHOUGH SMALL IN size, the Fenton Winegarden Library is part of the Genesee District Library, a countywide library system with 19 locations. Directly or through mutual assistance, Winegarden provides all the same services as the ‘big boys’ in Oxford, Ortonville and Clarkston. Please stop ig…

I’d like to see our MCC campus in downtown Fenton because it would add daytime vibrancy and more foot and bicycle traffic.

PARENTS, OUR KIDS are watching us very closely on how we handle the Oxford High School shooting. They might not show their fear, but we have to be aware of their emotions, words, communications and more so that they will grow up to be strong and loving parents someday too.

WHAT A SPECTACULAR Linden Holiday Happening this year! Kudos to everyone who helped make this incredible event happen. Your efforts and hard work really paid off. It was great to see so many people enjoying downtown Linden and all it had to offer to welcome the holiday season. It is truly a …

Prayers, strength and hope to families of the Oxford High School shooting. So many families ruined within minutes. Why? I’m glad the parents are also be charged since that is where the shooter got the gun from.”

I THINK IT would be awesome if all the businesses in downtown Fenton would put up lights on their buildings like a couple already have. Everyone is coming to town for all the great restaurants, so let’s show off.”

‘‘I love the Linden Holiday Happening, but I agree that it is not an event for fireworks. Christmas is not about fireworks. The money spent on them could be used toward something else that is festive and quieter that brings the town together during such a beautiful season of love.”

Hi, my Thanksgiving came early for us this year. We just returned from McDonald’s where the people in front of us paid for our breakfast meal and I’d like to thank them. Thank you and God bless.

So excited to see Linden Holiday Happening and Frosty Parade and Fireworks are on for this year on Dec. 3. Such a wonderful and festive time. Thank you, to all involved.

"Hope the person who wrote about removing lights on Silver Lake Road to improve traffic flow read the Times Nov. 10. Article stated Fenway Dr. and Silver Lake Rd. is the worst, a three-way intersection. Article didn’t recommend removing a single light on Silver Lake Rd."

‘‘This is in regards to the person stating that all of the construction in this area was causing car accidents. Let make this perfectly clear; road construction does not cause accidents. Incompetent and distracted drivers do. We are extremely lucky that none of these construction workers hav…

‘‘From one veteran to another, thank you for your service. Anywhere, anytime: I got your six.”

‘‘Thank you to the young lady who paid for my groceries at Alpine Monday, Nov 1. I will pass on your generosity to another. God bless you.”

‘‘Fenton really does have a great selection of restaurants around town. My husband and I really enjoy bouncing around to different places.”

‘‘Congratulations to the boys soccer teams at Fenton and Powers Catholic.”

‘‘Thank you TCT for hosting Bottles, Brews & News in Rackham Park! Great event for a great community organization (FARR). We had a great time with our family and friends, enjoyed the live music and good food. Well done!”

‘‘Neighbors in Fenton are the best when they all come out to help you. Thank you so much for helping with the trees that fell.”

‘‘Downtown Fenton speed limit is 25 mph and state law says yield for anyone in or entering a crosswalk. Perhaps Fenton police could enforce this before a pedestrian is hurt or worse by a speeding driver on their phone.”

‘‘We were mortified by how trashed the Lake Fenton community left the football stadium Friday night. What an awful reflection of this community and the school district.”

I DON’T CARE how many times you say something that’s not true. It’s still not true.

‘‘Shiawassee Shores is a great place to live. It’s a beautiful setting, very safe, and the staff and residents are friendly and warm. I’m a new resident in the park, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a pleasure to live in such a wonderful place. A true gem in Linden.”

‘‘As a Linden resident, I agree that the mural in town needs to be repainted but why not get a Linden artist to do the work? We already have the Mill building to view. Why paint another on a wall when the other is just a few steps away?”

‘‘I agree, parents have the right to decide how and where their children are educated. If they do not approve of the rules and policies of the local public schools, then choose to exercise your right and either choose a new school or home school. Problem solved.”

A big thank you to the Fenton Fire Department for their wonderful remembrance of 9/11/2001. Loved the bagpipes, flyover and speakers, so inspiring.
