‘‘We should thank the Holly postal workers who deliver to Rose Township, not criticize them. Since August, they have driven extra miles and change routes due to road closures, yet they always delivered my mail, even if it was 7 p.m. Saturday. They deserve our appreciation and some time off.”

‘‘I would like to thank the people who stopped to help me last Wednesday, Nov. 4 as I laid in the west lane of S. Holly Road, after my motorcycle and I hit that 10 point. Two surgeries to fix my elbow and ankle, and lots of rehabilitation ahead. God Bless you all.”

‘‘A huge thank you to the anonymous patron at the Fenton Hotel last Thursday who picked up the tab for our romantic 65th anniversary dinner and to the hotel for the champagne and dessert. It was a memorable evening including a Sinatra love ballad by their talented guitarist.”

— Doug and Marcia Werkema of Fenton

AFTER AN ELECTION, the winners stay and the losers go home. It’s the American way.

TO THE PERSON questioning why they do not use CDC stats. If they did then they would have to give up the control and fear they present to us each and every day. They would no longer be able to tell us what to do, when to do it and if we can do it at all. It has everything to do with the control the liberals want to keep on us.

IF BIDEN REALLY is declared the next president after all the lawsuits are resolved, you do realize how much your taxes are going to go up, right? Wish only the ones who voted for him had to pay more. Now, that sounds fair.

THE FAT LADY has not sung her song yet. How many days did it take for Al Gore to concede? He didn’t concede until Dec. 13, 2000. Everyone needs to relax and let the legal votes be counted.

TO THE PERSON driving by honking at the Biden signs. Congratulations, but be careful what you ask for.

A HOT-LINER WHO doesn’t understand CDC statistics very well suggested that children and 70+ adults have a very small chance of death due to COVID-19. The actual death rate is 0.5 percent to 1.0 percent. The number of people hospitalized and/or suffering from long-term or permanent damage is even higher.

I DON’T THINK Underoos come in my size, but I could be wrong. I’ll have to look into it. Maybe I can find some with matching Looney Tunes characters.

YOU’LL FIND THE missing ballots when you find Jimmy Hoffa. Just as much chance.

TODAY, NOV. 5, we had over 5,000 COVID cases in Michigan. Most of our better restaurants need reservations and they ask for a name and phone number. So what is the big deal about requiring this information if it will save even one life.

IN RESPONSE TO Sunday’s paper on animal cruelty. I find it very sad and disturbing to read about animal abuse and neglect. However, I am more grieved that we put animal lives above human lives when we think abortion is okay.

HOLLY AREA SCHOOLS school board — it’s time to physically get into the schools and really start listening.

IT WOULD BE great to see an article on COVID-19 in the area. Speak to people who have had it. Get different perspectives.
