A young girl and her mom stopped me as I exited Fenton Walmart on Monday and gave me a bouquet of daisies. I was so touched by this act of kindness; it made my day.

Congratulations to Gracie Warda who organized the Senior Pandemic Prom. The class of 2020 missed so much of the fun and exciting events of being a graduating high school senior. Way to go, Gracie.

I love the fact that sports players are protesting. Regardless of what it’s for, it makes me happy knowing that the First Amendment is alive and being used.

Voting by mail this year? Remember that your ballot must arrive at the clerk’s office by Election Day Tuesday, Aug. 4. Mail it early or hand deliver it to make sure your vote counts.

MAKE SURE YOUR primary vote counts on Aug. 4. Don’t cross party lines when you fill out your ballot or your vote won’t count. And please don’t yell at the poll workers. They don’t make the rules, they just follow them.

I ALWAYS SAID COVID-19 would be over after the November election. Now Fauci says we’ll have a vaccine by November. Something feels way too fishy.

***

THANKS DIRECTOR KATHY Felix for the report from Abbey Park. I feel like it’s the most honest I’ve heard so far in dealing with our senior population. You seem to have a lot of common sense in dealing with this pandemic. Keep up the good work.

***

VOTING ABSENTEE THIS year? Be sure to sign and date the back of the envelope before you drop it in the mail or deliver it to the clerk’s office.

TRUMP’S TARIFFS AREN’T intended to boost manufacturing employment or output. They are intended to create even footing with countries like China who tax U.S. products at insanely higher rates. Say what you will but the Trump administration is the only one in the last six-plus administrations to actually take action against unequal trade practices.

IF YOU ARE a hunter who chooses not to wear blaze orange during the season out of protest to government over-reach, your outlook on life is severely skewed. Being that deer are colorblind and can’t see the orange, all you are doing is increasing your risk of being a victim of an accidental shooting. I guess you are showing them though.

HYSTERIC’S CLAIM OF more than eight deaths in Genesee County over the last month from COVID-19 is a lie. Check for yourself: Genesee County Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard (Google it) reports only seven deaths from COVID-19 in the last 30 days.

***

SCHOOLS RETURNING TO in-person learning is not just a risk for students and teachers it is a risk for their families as well, making this a community concern. Planning for this should have been occurring for months. I hope the district will keep everyone safe.

***

LOCAL RESIDENTS RUNNING for local offices going door to door handing out flyers with no mask are irresponsible.

***

I LIKE SEEING dogs enjoying car rides and sniffing the air. Although, it is not safe for a dog to be on the driver’s lap.

***

I AGREE WITH the Hot line about Runyan Lake Road. The number of potholes and the poor condition it is in is unreasonable for those of us who have to drive on it every day.

***

THE STATE OF Michigan is very creative. They lay off their employees for one day a week and they then qualify for a small sum plus the $600 that the federal government gives them each week. What did the taxpayer get for that, the bill plus not getting the work done?

***

AS A RETIRED teacher, I have to say that children are not benefitting from online learning like they would in the classroom with face-to-face instruction. There are too many distractions at home such as video games and TV. Parents have to go to work and cannot supervise if homework is being done so consequently, it goes by the wayside.

***

WHY IS IT my job to go to Seattle and protect their property when they have voted people in office who took that right away?

***

THE TWO LINDEN school board members who are whining about kids going back to school had better get over it fast and respect the wishes of the overwhelming majority of parents in the district. Fenton is going back five days in person and announced it weeks ago. What is the problem here, Linden?

***

WHY DID LINDEN make a plan for high schoolers that is not in line with what the majority of the district wants? Unbelievable.

***

SO FRUSTRATED AFTER the Linden school board meeting over the lack of clear information and the board member who went on forever about her and her kids. It’s not about you, it’s about the district. Send these kids back to school — they need it. Teachers who are scared can teach online.

***

THE LEFT’S CURRENT plan to remove our president is simple. If your life is worse now than it was four years ago, then don’t vote for the incumbent. So, they are doing everything they can to make everyone’s lives worse. This pandemic is just the latest tool they are using to try to remove Trump.

TO ALL THE readers of TCT, I watched the first NHL game on TV last night and they played both the Canadian and American national anthems. Everyone proudly stood.

***

TO HOT-LINER ‘Hey Second Amendment folks.’ Concerned citizens did go to Howell using our Second Amendment rights to protect protestors’ First Amendment rights. We were also a deterrent with law enforcement to agitators who arrived in town with destructive motives.

***

TO THE SECOND Amendment Hot-liner. Why would we ever go to Portland? Their citizens voted for these Democrat Socialist policies. Their citizens need to rethink who they vote for or live with the third-world results.

***

IF YOU CLAIM to be a moderate Democrat, there is no Democrat for you to vote for in the election, seriously. Joe Biden is not a moderate Democrat as he’s adopted many of Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Party platform.

***

IF ANYONE SHOWS up on your street attacking our police officers, burning buildings and violently pulling people out of their cars, what are you willing to do?

***

TO THE MORON commenting to Second Amendment folks taking our guns to Portland. Are you that stupid naturally or do you practice?

***

WHERE DID THE bread man from Holly Bread Store go? He made the best ‘flax seed bread.’ I think he was from Davisburg.

***

THE PROBLEMS IN Portland are not concerning the Second Amendment. The thugs there are looting, burning and destroying public buildings. The liberal Democrat leaders there are creating more problems than anything. The ‘peaceful protestors’ are nothing less than rioting thugs.

***

MY GRANDMA DIED from the flu a few years ago. We really loved her, but they didn’t shut down the whole country. Come on.

***

IT’S GREAT TO go out to a restaurant, if you choose, be able to shop in a store other than a grocery store, if you choose. We are wearing masks to protect the businesses who have been closed for so long. I’d hate to see them have to close again.
