‘‘I’ve been loving this nice weather. It makes going to our beautiful county parks that much better. Shout out to all the park workers in the county.”

***

‘‘What part of  truth in advertising don’t the politicians understand? We are tired of cut-throat politics.”

***

‘‘I would like to say thank you to the Fenton High School counselors who had to call the 400 families that didn’t register and then redo schedules. You and the teachers are our unsung heroes.”

***

‘‘Kudos to the city of Fenton for supporting small businesses through sponsoring the Street Experience. It is disappointing to see so many of the merchants not participating.”

***

IF A STUDENT is sent home with all symptoms of COVID-19, the student is not required to get a test. They are only required to be out of school for quarantine period and be symptom free to return. Thus no classmate/parent will be contacted as to a possible contact. Huge flaw in plan to go back to school.

***

MAN LEAVES HOSPITAL after testing positive for COVID-19 and dies in auto accident. State of Michigan reports the man’s cause of death is COVID-19.

***

I AM TIRED of the teacher bashing. Having been through the experience, there is nothing more heart wrenching than to have a student die. It is not that teachers do not want to go back to face-to-face instruction, it has everything to do with caring about the safety of those we love and care about including your children.

TRUMP WILL WIN and it will be by a landslide.

***

COVID-19 IS THE greatest argument against globalization.

***

MY WIFE AND I will be voting in person this November. The Fenton Township polling place was very well run for the August primary and we have no doubt that it will run smoothly in November. We are confident that our vote will count.

***

OUR GOVERNOR NEEDS to be more like South Dakota’s governor and trust her citizens to do the right thing. Let all businesses reopen and encourage self-responsibility of all.

***

TWO REAL REASONS Australia did better than us with COVID-19: 1) Being in the Southern Hemisphere, COVID-19 hit during their summer, so they had a huge head start, and 2) Australians are a bunch of compliant sheep. Heck, Australians are still subject of the queen.

***

THANK YOU, WALMART for protecting your employees and the public by posting a security guard at the entrance. No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. Why is that so hard for some people?

***

MORE EVIDENCE OF hysteria: recent Hot-liner claimed ‘A thousand people are dying daily from COVID-19.’ Johns Hopkins University reports the most recent day of 1,000 or greater deaths occurred in early June.

***

ACTUALLY, TRUMP QUESTIONED the possibility of combining dialysis type treatment with bleach to kill COVID-19. Yes, I prefer that type of out-of- the-box, nothing’s off the table, solutions-based thinking. Much better than the thoughtless Democrats who killed thousands in nursing homes simply because ‘science said so.’

***

WHITMER’S DECLARATION OF racism as a public health emergency was due to Flint’s BLM agenda #4? As a white Caucasian male, I can tell you that you are disconnected from reality. You have some research to do.

***

YOUR SANDBAGS WON’T stop the rain. Try again.

***

MOST CITED AND trusted source of COVID-19 data, Johns Hopkins University, inflates the number of COVID-19 cases by adding ‘presumptive positive cases’ to the total. They admit as much in the fine print of their data map.

***

TRUMP WAS IMPEACHED — for a good reason. Don’t forget this. He should not be reelected. Think. He is unfit. Vote for Biden, please.

***

SURE ARE A lot of judgmental people in the Lake Fenton area. Just because we do not share your political opinion, you act as if you are more worthy and smart. That’s not the case, however. You are just brainwashed by the mainstream nightly news, but you just don’t realize it.

***

TO THE PERSON proclaiming what a great presidency we had under Obama and Biden. You must have been in an eight-year coma. Our manufacturing companies moved their jobs to overseas and people no longer had work. The only thing you got right was Bin Laden.

***

I FULLY SUPPORT NBA’s boycott of playoffs. Keep it up. In fact, boycott the rest of the season. Next season too. How can they justify playing kiddie games while Blacks are hunted on American streets? Come on LeBron, be a real man. Quit basketball until justice is done.

***

IT IS SAD that health care workers labor over the care of so many through their careers to end up with no health care insurance from the major companies they work for. Auto workers and others get health care when they retire to some degree, but nothing for health care workers.

***

EXTREMISTS APPEAL TO fear and anger. Is that the way to base your decisions? In order to make decisions based on listening to varying views, you’d be fair about those decisions. There are sides to every issue in the election. The informed voter is one who is informed, not angry or in fear.

***

SOMEHOW, EVERY YEAR billions of Christmas cards get delivered all around our country. That shows the post office is well able to handle an increase in mail-in ballots. Or at least it was, before DeJoy removed a bunch of automated sorting equipment. Mail-in fraud is a hoax, people.

***

FIRST THE DEMOCRATS told you that there were no riots only peaceful protests. Now they are trying to tell you the riots are all Trump’s fault. Which is it? They can’t have it both ways.

***

TO THE IGNORANT Hot-liner. I agree; all data belongs to us and it is available on the web.

***

IS IT WRONG that I enjoy news stories of protests at the homes of Democrat mayors? Portland, Seattle, Washington, D.C. and Minneapolis mayors have all been on the receiving end of the civil disobedience they promote. Sounds like karma.

***

QUIT GIVING OBAMA credit for Bin Laden’s death. You cannot kill a man until you find him. He was found during President Bush’s term. They already had him under surveillance over a year. Our military took him out. All Obama did was give the thumbs up.

***

IT SURE IS funny. When the Democrats found out that not talking about protesting and riots was helping Trump, they suddenly changed their tune and have Joe talking against protesting and riots. Isn’t politics just wonderful?

***

SHE WAS SET up? That is the most absurd thing Nancy Pelosi has said this week. If you believe her story, I’ve got a bridge that I’d be willing to sell you.

***

FORMER GOVERNOR SNYDER now comes out publicly for Joe Biden. I wonder if he thinks he needs to stay on the right side of the Democrats in the state of Michigan because the AG can ruin his life.

***

HAVING EVALUATED SEVERAL FOIA requests, there are eight criteria. You must meet only one for approval. If yours is disapproved, you do not have a need to know. Since the information is publicly available, I suggest research. The information will not be provided on a silver platter, as you desire.

***

I AGREE WITH teachers in the 1980s. I am a teacher. We are essential and should be in our classrooms. The MEA is often in the business of cutting off our noses to spite our faces. We will not have classrooms to return to if parents enroll their children elsewhere.
