Football season starts this week. My wife and I wish all of our area teams substantial success.

The Street Experience should only happen once a year, not two days a week for months. It causes grid lock on the entire city. It also endangers anyone that may need police or fire as it takes more time for them to get around the blocked streets.

A special thank you to Ronald’s Tree Service in Linden for the outstanding job their crew did in removing downed trees and limbs from the August 11 storm. Your crew was very responsive, well-trained, professional, and hard working. Thank you for the great job on Byram Lake Drive!

IF YOU ENJOY the Labor Day firework display on Lobdell Lake please consider a donation. You can visit their webpage at https://lobdellbennettlake.com to donate today.

WHERE ARE THE mosquito spraying trucks? With all the rain we’ve had, this is the worst year ever being bitten by mosquitoes. Those trucks should be out in full force.

THE MOSQUITOES ARE really bad when you go outside on Ripley Road in Linden. Could they spray sometime out here? Thanks.

TOO BAD FENTON had their patrolman hassling motorists Sunday afternoon rather than opening Silver Lake Road for the weekend. The paving is complete but the barricades are still up.

BOTH MASKS AND vaccines work. Masks provide protection to those who are physically close to an infected person. Vaccines don’t prevent infection; they protect an infected person from serious illness, hospitalization and death. Together, masks and being vaccinated help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and the seriousness of infections.

CAN YOU PLEASE tell me why Fenton has downtown parking coned off? We need those parking spots!

MY 75 YEAR old sister and her 51 year old son both have COVID-19 and are in a Florida hospital on ventilators. Both were vaccinated. Her son gave it to the father who is recovering and he gave it to my sister. The pandemic is not over folks!

GETTING VACCINATED PROTECTS those around you who can’t be vaccinated (children under 12) or for whom vaccination isn’t effective (those with compromised immune systems). That doesn’t make me a ‘superior person,’ but it does make me less selfish than those who could be vaccinated but refuse it.

nnn

THE VACCINES HAVE not put an end to mandates, shutdowns, in-person learning, etc., in large part because too many people have refused to get them.

COVID-19 VACCINE is a gift from God to help us fight the deadly disease.

AGAIN. YOU AND your family are vaccinated and wear masks; you’re all protected. Good. So why insist we all do the same? Still no answer to that question.

nnn

IF YOU ARE infected and don’t know it, you are unknowingly putting those you spend time with at risk. If you are wearing a mask, the danger you present is greatly reduced. That is not opinion; it is established scientific fact. Mask mandates protect others from you.

WHAT DO WE think about Dan Kildee when he asks for email contact and questions and there’s a check box asking if you want a response, but neither he nor his people will respond. Not too great a representative for me.

BIDEN SIMPLY FINISHED what Trump started in Afghanistan. Trump wanted to pull troops out three months earlier. If you are looking for whom to blame, start with Trump who negotiated the withdrawal with the Taliban. Biden simply followed through on Trump’s deal.

THE FREE FOOD and supplies given out by Consumers Energy was paid for by the 50% increase in usage rates between 2-7pm by our seniors and those less fortunate. Shame on them.

HOW IS IT that Spectrum can claim 99.9% reliability when I’ve experienced reliability of about 29.9% with there service for more than a month and they haven’t been able to fix it?

nnn

WALMART IN FENTON really needs a wakeup call. The staff is not the issue. It is management. The staff appears so stretched, overworked and exhausted. Management stands around talking when they should be helping. Get a clue. I will no longer shop at Fenton Walmart. Treat your staff better!
