‘‘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.”

***

‘‘Can Fenton police enforce the noise ordinance? We shouldn’t have to be disturbed by obnoxious people blasting profane music in their cars and motorcycles we can hear from blocks away. Downtown should be peaceful and family friendly.”

***

‘‘And another thing: Please be extra aware of postal carriers on the roads. I see some drivers who come dangerously close to the carriers on their routes. Be cautious and leave room for them to do their jobs.

***

TO THE PERSON that thinks Reagan was the first to tax Social Security. You really need to read some history instead of comic books. Truman was first to tax SS. Now the Democrats want to tax your IRA earned interest. Enjoy that.

***

MINDLESSLY SAYING THE big lie over and over again does not make it true.

***

HOW ABOUT SOME reparations for the American Indians? They owned it all at one time.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER that thinks he can sue the drug companies. News flash: One of the things that the government did for the drug companies was give them immunity from civil liability to get the vaccine into arms as quickly as possible.

***

YOU MAY SUPPORT vaccine mandates right now, because they fall in line with your beliefs. But if this is allowed to happen, at some point in the future there will be more mandates, and next time, it may not align with your beliefs. It will be then that you realized that we should never have had mandates.

***

THE GOVERNMENT DOES not ‘take’ money from some to give away to others, as (mis)stated by a recent Hot-liner. Most of us loyal citizens willingly ‘give’ that money in the form of taxes, to maintain and perpetuate the world’s greatest economy and democracy.

***

IF YOU ARE a Christian, you know it is either Christ or Satan. Whose holiday is Halloween? The displays around town are getting more and more sinister and even right across the street from St. John’s.

***

JUST BECAUSE I’M not afraid of COVID doesn’t mean I don’t think it exists. I understand the risk (99.98% survival rate) and choose to live my life over fear.

***

THE USPS IS a federal business with about 600,000 employees. Like all government business, they operate at a loss. Congress appropriates at least $2 billion each year to keep them alive. When you see them out there on the weekends, remember that it is your tax dollars keeping them on overtime.

***

YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

***

LAKE FENTON FAMILIES, students, athletes, and Goodrich guests in attendance ought to be ashamed of themselves for the shape they left every inch of that football stadium after Friday’s homecoming game. A gorgeous facility left looking like a landfill. Very disheartening.

***

TO THE PEOPLE who write things like quit complaining, get a job or if you don’t like blocked streets, move to Flint. Or trees fall in yard, you said move out of town. You are nasty people. Love the Hot lines.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER complaining that $20,000 to the pathways is wrong when the township voters turn the pathways down. The same way with Fenton city voters turn down pathways but our fearless leaders decide to pass it anyhow.

**

YOU SAY THE COVID numbers in Michigan are twice as bad as last year, we must not be getting the same information. I have not seen that math. Point me in the right direction.

***

THE AMOUNT OF road construction in our community is out of control. U.S. 23 has become a disaster zone all summer. Now people are being killed because of distracted drivers. Does every bridge, road, exit ramp in Fenton need to be repaired in one summer?

***

FENTON AND THE Township are growing, and real estate is at all-time highs, so property tax revenue must also be at an all-time high. How come officials omit any mention of this property tax revenue windfall when pushing street bonds?

***

I SAY CONGRATULATIONS to the Walmart workers I encountered in the store today. They were courteous and helpful. Good for you. I appreciate that they are working when many people do not want to work or want to collect unemployment. I cannot work now, but I would if I could.

***

NOBODY CARES ABOUT Hot lines? Your Hot line submission disproves your statement. People who actually don’t care just flip the page to the next article. You cared enough to read the Hot lines and invest time in crafting and submitting a response.

***

TO THE PERSON in the Hot lines saying ‘no one cares.’ Clearly, you do, or you wouldn’t have sent that in. I have a simple fix for you: don’t read the Hot lines if they are upsetting you. People like you complain just to hear themselves talk.

***

LET’S START MAKING things here again. Give small businesses incentives to make goods here.

***

MOVING MOTT COLLEGE’S Southern Lakes branch into downtown would be a game changer for Fenton. Make it happen.

***

ANOTHER UNAPPRECIATIVE PERSON who is able to get an education but concerned with dreary. People are there to learn, not sight see and should be grateful for every dreary moment.

***

THE RESEARCH TIME for the COVID-19 vaccine was not shortened. President Trump made funds available for the production process to begin at the same time so the vaccine could be available sooner.

***

KNOW WHAT’S FUNNY to me? These commercials about how to grow your hair. I’ve been shaving mine off for years ha-ha on purpose.

***

I HAVE SYMPATHY for people from poor terrible countries. Why don’t all the millionaires and billionaires send money to help those people, instead of building rocket ships? They could do so much good with that money.
