Michigan lawmakers are largely all talk, little action when it comes to their financial transparency.

Thanks for having an article on pet food safety in your May 26 issue. I’d like to warn my neighbors away from kibble with bright colors. My kitties almost died from kibble with red dye in it. My veterinarian said, ‘Never get kibble that looks like fruit loops.’

The recent fire in our community demonstrates the necessity to always be in attendance when using fire, whether it’s for cooking or just entertainment. An adult should be there, watching and ready to act immediately should the fire get out of control. This time we were lucky, only property was lost.

Okay Fenton, you got your wish. The city is now a destination. Problem now is because of the heavy traffic, residents have to wait 10 to 15 minutes to get off their side roads onto busy streets like Owen and Silver Lake roads.

RELIGION AND GOVERNMENT do mix. Open your eyes and see the evil, corruption and the lack of morals in this country today, because the government has taken religion (Christian values) out of the government, due to lack of education and research on knowing the truth behind all the Christian values.

GOVERNOR GRETCHEN NEEDS to not only fix the roads but also fix the Secretary of State licensing problem. I couldn’t get an appointment until the following week so I went and I was number 169 in line for my license. I had a four-hour wait with hundreds of other people.

I LOVE THIS time of year when the baby deer are born. Be careful driving.

FENTON TREASURER TUCKER says he didn’t think residents want pot facilities, yet a majority voted in favor of pot. We could have a local facility to buy it from and then the township would cut down the sewage bills to help seniors with the money from facilities.

***

MOST OF THE announced Democratic Party candidates are actually getting their names out for 2024. Only a fool would attempt to run against Trump. That’s why Biden and Bernie are the leading 2020 Democratic candidates.

CAN WE GET an update on when the new stores and restaurants along Silver Parkway and Owen Road will be opening? A list of them with their opening dates would be much appreciated.

HOW IN YOUR warped mind do school shootings stem from political correctness? More than likely, they are the result of bullying.

***

‘METRO LEAGUE CO-champions,’ Little Kenny stopped you from winning the metro solely. Good job Little Kenny. So how do you create a metro co-champion sign? Do you put Linden and Owosso on it? I’m not sure ‘co-champions’ is even a thing.

HEARTBREAKING STORY OF Tyler’s dog Cruz. I hope and pray you find him. Please keep us posted.

TO THE TAXPAYERS of Fenton Area Public Schools. Vote ‘no’ Aug. 6. It’s time to stand up to this unnecessary greed. Dr. Hartley can figure this out with what he has without draining us lowly taxpayers.

***

THERE IS TALK of closing down one of the elementary schools in Fenton. What happens to the 2.25-mill money if they close one of these schools?

***

CALLING FOR THE Department of Education (DeVos) to take prompt action to satisfy its statutory mandate to discharge the student loans of veterans who are permanently and totally disabled or otherwise unemployable. As a nation, we have a moral obligation to assist those who have put their lives on the line to defend us.

***

BOB MUELLER CLAIMS all ‘we the people’ need to know is in his 408-page report. One problem Bob, your boss, Attorney General Barr won’t let us see the damned report available since early April.

***

MEN SHOULD BE involved in birth control to prevent abortions not to have a say in a woman’s reproductive health.

***

THE FENTON SCHOOL system must know that it overstepped with its 2.25 millage tax increase request because now they acknowledge they get a do-over in November. Probably at a lower rate. Vote ‘no’ on this scam this August.

***

THE HOT-LINER NEVER claimed Lincoln established Memorial Day. Learn to read. However, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, a monumental act, is universally recognized as a powerful devotion to honor America’s fallen. A lesson we should all observe.

***

MONEY TALKS. ABOUT 12 hours after the marina got the green light, the docks were being put in. They must have had a heads up on that one. What company offers such prompt service and delivery on docks?

***

IN THE PAST, you would be able to defend yourself if you are innocent. Now the Democratic Party calls it ‘obstruction of justice’ if you criticize the accusers. The Democrats are now using Stalinist tactics by creating a crime for those they want to destroy.

***

SO LINDEN SCHOOLS lost three players last year due to softball coaching. At about $13,000 per student from the state Linden’s at a loss of about $39,000 per year. How many left Fenton to go to Linden? None. So, who’s actually winning? Maybe it’s time to make some changes, Linden.
