It makes me cringe when I hear women complaining about their husbands, and vice versa. How would you feel if your spouse was suddenly not around anymore? Count your blessings today and quit whining, or get a divorce.

The new Linden structure is a beautiful testament to the landmark historic building that once occupied the property, but was lost due to fire in 2007. The new Union Block proudly stands in its memory. Thank you, Dr. Wax, for believing in Linden and wanting this to be built. It’s a great addition to Linden.

Took a drive around Fenton town last week during the nice weather. I was shocked to see all the new stores and businesses I did not know existed. How can we find out more about these new places before they go out of business?

‘It’s usually men’ the wife said. ‘Pay attention you’ll see.’ So I did, and she was right. Come on guys, use your turn signals, don’t let the wife be right.

THE WORLD IS on edge because of the Iran situation. Apocalyptic fires are destroying Australia. Puerto Rico is reeling from earthquakes and loss of power. But the biggest, most important news story of the week is that Hannah B has returned to The Bachelor. God save us!

REMEMBER THE SHOW ‘Are you smarter than a fifth-grader?’ Maybe we should ask the schools to task their fifth grade classes to come up with ideas on how to solve their community’s major problems, like fixing the roads. Couldn’t be any worse than what we have now.

LOVED THE LETTER to the editor from the Boy Scout suggesting the old LaJoice property at Caroline and Adelaide be developed into a theater, a place for theatrical productions and more. What a great idea.

GIVEN THE UKRAINIAN Airline out of Tehran airport ‘crashed’ during the heightened U.S. Iranian issue, do you think it is possible that Iranian air defense shot it down?

THE LADY IN the red SUV in the roundabout around 8 p.m. Tuesday evening, you had the right-of-way. You do not, I reiterate, do not stop in the middle of the roundabout when I’m already stopped at the yield sign waiting for you.

WHAT AN UNEXPECTED and pleasant surprise to look up at the front of the new building in downtown Linden and see the words Union Block embedded into the vintage-looking bricks. The classic look and design of the new structure is perfect and complements the town nicely.

A THOUSAND DOLLARS a month via Andrew Yang’s Freedom Dividend would cover the co-pay on my husband’s chemo drug. The extra $24,000 per year for both of us would be life changing for us and our children.

CRIMINALS CONVICTED OF killing someone that can be positively proven to be the murderer should not be housed, fed, clothed and given full medical attention for the rest of their life at the expense of honest hard-working people. They should be comfortably put to death.

A PLANE AT 8,000 feet instantaneously vanishes from RADAR. Plane exploded. Two possibilities. Bomb or shot down. If bomb, why not wait until out of Iranian air space.

OUR CONGRESSIONAL REP. Elissa Slotkin is now working on a resolution, which carries no weight or changes nothing other than a PR stunt. Her supporters think she’s getting something done. She did support giving Iran $1.5 billion and her time with the Obama Administration.

JUST HEARD ON NPR, ‘We can’t go around killing people.’ Obama did it. Trump can do it. And, by the way, Obama had a chance to get this guy but he would rather fund him. The ‘nuclear agreement.’

ANDREW YANG IS the best shot the DNC has for a win. They are crazy to be shutting him out. Drawing 10 percent of Republicans is huge.
