Easy times make soft people; hard times make champions. America is going to come back stronger than ever. Mark my words.

I just want to send out a big ‘thank you’ to Joan Tyree, Sue Bruhn and Julie Barns from the Linden United Methodist Church who made 80 facemasks. The staff and residents at Argentine Care Center are grateful to have something comfortable to wear all day.

***

Thank you doctors, nurses, nurses’ aides, paramedics who are taking care of COVID-19 patients. You’re angels in disguise. Your hard work and amazing dedication will not go unnoticed. The public is lucky to have you people.

***

Really nice to see people walking along Tinsman Road and picking up trash on a nice day. Then, the trash is right back there. What’s wrong with people?

***

IT IS SO incredible the number of selfish people who are in this world. Get over yourself. This isn’t about you; it’s about all of us. We all need to follow the rules regarding COVID-19 so we can get back to some normal life, whatever that new normal may be.

WAS SOCIAL DISTANCING. Then I thought, this is a free country. I went to Lansing.

***

I AM A lifelong Democrat and retired now from owning a small business in the Fenton area. I am so disgusted with the Democrats in charge right now. What happened to my party?

***

WE ARE LIVING through an historic crisis. Remember: We belong to each other. Please check on others. Please be patient with things like unemployment and return to work. Stay home to protect others. Your life and health are more important than money.

***

SO, IF YOU made $600 a week before, now with unemployment and stimulus, you take home $950. Our leaders have gone crazy. This is a slippery slope.

***

I ALSO AGREE that Linden softball coaches should have told the girls what teams they would have made. It seems that no one was told anything. I am sure all the kids worked very hard at tryouts.

***

MASK MAKERS: PLEASE wash the material before you make the masks. Lots of contaminates in newly purchased cotton material.

***

LET’S START GETTING back to work May 1.

DO YOU REALLY think Ruth’s Chris (high-end steak house) deserved a $20 million stimulus package considering they made $43 million in profits last year? How about policing these giveaways and spreading them around to those who really need help.

***

WHENEVER MY SISTER had a problem, my parents would throw money at it, never making her be responsible for herself. Now, they are gone and she lives in poverty collecting government handouts. Do you understand the metaphor in relation to this pandemic?

***

PAINTING AND GARDENING may be very essential to the mental health. Just ask the drug addict who is trying to stay busy or the alcoholic who is trying to abstain from a drink.

***

DON’T GO UP north. They have a lot fewer resources than we have down here. They have great medical care, just not many beds and scarce ICU beds.

***

LIBERTY IS MORE important than health.

***

WHITMER DID NOT prohibit buying home repair items or garden equipment and supplies from online companies. Browse and buy all you want. Local hardware stores sell these items too. Get the facts before you make accusations and post falsehoods for others to believe.

***

I THINK IT was Patrick Henry who said, ‘Give Me Liberty, Or Give Me Death.’ If you live in the right state next week, you can have both.

***

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN being in quarantine in Michigan and minus-20 below weather for two weeks? We choose to stay home for that weather, and right now we’re told to stay home. Let’s everyone grow up; stay home; it saves lives.

THE CORONAVIRUS MAY be no more lethal than the flu, but it spreads much more efficiently. The purpose for the ‘shelter at home’ strategy was not to prevent this virus from spreading (that is apparently not possible) but rather to prevent everyone from getting it at once and overwhelming the hospitals.

***

PREVENTION IS LESS expensive than remediation. Residents should be concerned about going for a swim in Great Lakes beaches, drinking safe, clean water from their taps, or eating local fish because nearby industrial facilities are not being appropriately held responsible for their pollution.

***

WHAT? THE DIRECTOR of the World Health Organization is not a medical doctor. Don’t believe me? Do your own research and in about two minutes, you can find out everything you want on him.

***

BUSINESS OWNERS AND managers, please tell your employees to stop asking me if I want my receipt when I purchase something, whether it’s food or some other item. Yes, I do want my receipt. If there’s a problem, I have no proof of purchase without my receipt.

***

BAG UP AND tie your trash. Loose items will blow out of the trucks and end up everywhere. It’s not difficult. Compact your recyclables as well, Again, not rocket science. Happy earth day to all.

***

LINDEN SOFTBALL — METRO League Champs — District Champs. You focus on who would’ve been on varsity; we will focus on winning championships. Go Eagles!

***

YOU SHOULD BE ‘afraid of people with my mindset.’ We are the ones who want independence, liberty, and freedom. Not like people of your mindset who want to take that all away from us. Liberty will prevail; it always has in this great country
