IN RESPONSE TO Street Talk regarding ‘Who was your favorite teacher and why?’ I, as a former Linden alumni circa ‘06, have to applaud Mrs. Julie Totske and Mrs. Molly Plunkett. Those two women were the absolute best, most supportive and helpful to all kids regardless of learning comprehension.

I HAVE NEVER seen such an outpouring of respect and love from the Lake Fenton schools community for Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week. Thank you for all gifts, gift baskets and gift cards to make those of us who work there feel the love. We live in the best community.

DOES THIS MAKE sense? Linden survey results are in. The top two positive aspects are small-town atmosphere (74%) and safe neighborhoods and community (65%).

RECOMMENDATION. AN ORGANIC natural food restaurant that actually plays to your health in Linden. Not too expensive, so you would attract everyone who could afford to go there. Lots of people need this in this area and are longing for it.

LAST WEEK I made three trips to the U of M Hospital for prostate cancer treatment. It seems most drivers are not conserving gas, but driving 80 mph. I drove 70 mph with cruise control and got an average of 34 mpg all week in my Honda CR-V.

IF YOU HAVE to put up a fence for protection (DC), you might be doing something wrong.

WHY ARE ALL the new (or most) movies, sitcoms and TV shows all have biracial leading couples followed with same sex partners in relationships? Not against it but in virtually everything we watch?
