‘‘Don’t assume that all parents are against hybrid. Some of us have teens that are making the best of the situation. They think of it as a compromise — in-person learning along with social distancing. The high school teachers have been pretty awesome.”

‘‘Thank you to the driver of a red truck for plowing our driveway on Rose Center Road near the fire department on Thursday, Feb. 18. We seniors are very thankful. God bless you.”

‘‘How cool was that! Just watched as NASA’s Perseverance Rover just landed on Mars. Can’t wait to see the photos from this mission.”

FROZEN WIND TURBINES in Texas. Isn’t that the most ironic thing ever. Now the residents who actually have access to a gas-powered generators are the only ones with power. Just can’t make this stuff up.

ISN’T IT TIME that our moronic U.S. Congress stopped trying to get ex-president Trump and started trying to run the country again? We have the worst pandemic experienced since the Black Plague of the 1300s.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN WROTE a letter to his son’s teacher. He states that for every crooked politician there is a dedicated leader. Thank you, President Trump for being the best leader we have ever had and not part of the crooked politicians.

THE BEST THING that could happen to the public school system is competition from free enterprises.

SO, ANDREW CUOMO’S nursing home scandal is finally gaining traction with law enforcement. Putting positive cases in with the compromised elderly was horrific. Isn’t that same policy that our lovely governor used? When will she be charged?

THE TEXAS GRID got crushed because its operators didn’t see the need to prepare for cold weather.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE doing to stay sane? I’m so bored at times and feel like I’m going nuts. I do puzzles. I read. TV is boring. Is anyone as sick as I am of having to stream just to watch something new. Yet pay an arm and leg for cable?

WHO IS THIS Nate guy that has no home here?

SURE APPRECIATE BEING recognized in the editor’s column for our work out in the cold.

THANK YOU TO the nice man in the white Yukon wearing a blue sweatshirt who helped me when I was stuck in the snow at Holly Road and Tucker. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

A HOT-LINER ASKED why Michigan National Guard was in D.C. Because they were federalized. The National Guard takes two oaths: one to the state the other to the nation.

ALL SOURCES OF energy froze in Texas because they weren’t maintained properly. The wind turbines in Michigan use heaters to keep them from freezing.

TO THE HOT-LINER who wrote ‘shame on the Senators.’ The Senate’s decision has nothing to do with criminality, it has everything to do with politics. If they didn’t vote to acquit they would not be reelected. As representatives of their constituents, they are not leaders but followers. Their vote reflected that.

RIP, RUSH LIMBAUGH. We’ve listened to you on the radio for more than 20 years. There is not one person who loves this country more than you did. You will be missed.

LOVE LISTENING TO school board members talk about what’s good for students and the educational process when they have absolutely no clue what it’s like to be an educator.

***

THE LINDEN BOARD member that tried to push her agenda through without receiving public comment first should step down. Thank you to the board member who recognized it as improper and stopped it.

CHINA IS BUILDING 100 new coal-fired steam power plants a year and we are putting up pinwheels.

I’VE BEEN TRYING desperately for weeks to get my disabled 65-year-old wife vaccinated. The process is a mess. We live in Fenton Township.

I’D LIKE TO see a great sledding hill in the Linden/Fenton area other than the very small one at Clover Beach. A warming shanty would be great too. Add a hot chocolate vendor, and it’d be just as I remember from growing up.

NO, YOU DO not stop in the middle of the roundabout.
