I guess I just don’t understand what our elected representatives think their job entails. The majority of local voters endorsed the legalization of marijuana, yet the reps somehow believe that we do not want local access? Do you represent your constituents or are you just voicing your own personal beliefs?

Yay! Concerts in the park started Thursday. Please consider leaving pets at home. It is no fun for them on busy sidewalks. There are six other days to stroll at leisure.

***

No matter which way you lean, save your political opinions. Nobody cares. If you want to make a difference, get involved.

***

Most dangerous road in Fenton Township? Owen Road from U.S. 23 to Linden Road. Make it three lanes.

GREAT JOB LINDEN Eagles softball — 2019 Metro League Champs.

***

FENTON AREA, WHEN are you going to wake up and understand that the Republicans are just stringing you along with social issues? They really don’t care and are not interested in representing you but you take the bait over and over again. Sad.

***

TYRONE TOWNSHIP — MAYBE it’s time to start enforcing code violations regarding blight and help taxpayers maintain their property values. Some properties are becoming literal junk yards. Open your eyes. Rose Township, this is for you, too. It’s not the ‘holler’ after all. Start doing your jobs.

AN EXHIBIT EXPLORING the world’s connection to water is coming to the Michigan Science Center in Detroit.

***

PEOPLE WHO ARE legally required to report suspected child abuse and neglect in Michigan may now do so online.

***

WHERE IS THE county commissioner for Lake Fenton? School still is in session and a portion of Torrey Road (by West Shore Elementary and Torrey Hill) has been closed. Couldn’t the county road commission wait a week before starting this project?

***

DOES ANYONE KNOW when McCaslin Lake Road is going to have chloride applied? The dust is unbelievable.

***

WE HAVE SEVERAL establishments in the area that serve alcohol, including grocery stores and gas stations, but our elected representatives have decided that in spite of the majority of voters approval of marijuana legalization, you do not want to have marijuana retail sales in Fenton? Have you forgotten who voted you into office?

***

CONGRATULATIONS LINDEN VARSITY softball district champs. A great display of teamwork, coaching and fan support.

***

WHY DO THE construction workers take up most of the few available parking spots in front of the library? They should park in a parking lot and walk. Their cars sit there all day. They even take up a spot, if available, to eat lunch. Now there aren’t any handicapped spots by the library, which makes it hard, too.

***

OAK STREET IN Fenton has red octagon-shaped signs; they say ‘STOP.’ Look it up if you don’t know what it means.

***

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2019 Linden Eagles Softball District Champions!

***

CARBON DIOXIDE, THE gas scientists said is most responsible for global warming, peaked again at record levels last month.

***

IF IT’S FOUND that you weren’t guilty of crime X, that says nothing as to whether you thought that you might be indicted for crime X, or that one of your friends or family members would be indicted for crime X. Obstructing the investigation is illegal, ask Martha Stewart.

***

CONGRATULATIONS TO JORDAN H. on winning metro and districts!

***

NOW THAT THE feral cats are gone in Tyrone Township, we have an abundance of vermin. So thank you for taking the feral cats away. Nature takes care of nature.

***

IT’S VERY SIMPLE. If Americans want to live under a ‘world government,’ run by socialist dictators, they should vote for presidential candidates like our last four presidents. If Americans want to continue to live in a free and independent nation, they should support Donald Trump.

***

IF A ‘FALTERING’ Linden travel program is five teams, 70-plus kids, awesome coaches and families, then I will continue to have my kiddos play in Linden. You haters keep on hating.

***

THERE ARE MANY more religious sects in this country than Christianity. To incorporate ‘Christian values’ in the government would violate the religious rights of all other religious groups.

***

THE FLINT WATER problem started long before Snyder took office. Flint’s water department was neglected for decades. The Detroit water and sewage department used Flint as a cash cow for most of Granholm’s administration. That water department gave Flint an ultimatum to pay nearly double their current water rate or be shut off.

***

‘OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE’ may be charged but a charge is nothing until a warrant is issued and a conviction is obtained. Not one word should ever be published until a conviction is achieved. People are ruined by the salacious press, without one word ever uttered in a courtroom.

***

WANT ROAD IMPROVEMENTS? Tear up the roads in front of politicians homes/businesses. See how fast they get fixed then.

***

CONGRATS LINDEN SOFTBALL — District Champs!

***

ALL FREEWAYS SOUTH of I-10 should be a minimum of three lanes in both directions. All of them.

***

I WONDER IF any of the nurseries are ever inspected by the state. What a great place to grow marijuana, legal or otherwise. I have noticed lots of expansion at some of them.

***

ROSE TOWNSHIP INCORRECTLY applied my taxes and now I have a nasty gram from Oakland County. Totally Rose Township’s mistake and Paul (Rose Township treasurer) admits it’s their fault but they (Rose Township and Oakland County) say I’m responsible for late charges and interest. What?

***

ONE GAS STATION on Owen Road needs to invest a few dollars in updating/improving its facilities. It frankly is an eyesore amidst several excellent businesses that have tried to enhance that side of the freeway. Remove and replace most of those old, overgrown shrubs and apply a little paint to the building, please.

***

TO THE WEEKLY Hot-liner who still has a burr under their saddle about Linden softball, he or she needs to get over it and get on with their life.

***

I TOO HAD read Mueller’s report and want to see a complete unredacted report. Thus far, I’ve learned the report is not a read; it’s a study and couldn’t have been read in the short time Attorney General Barr claims. His added redactions including his lies to Congress are the beginnings of a cover up.

***

I SECOND THE comment applauding and appreciating the auto business on Silver Parkway in Fenton. Since we moved here six years ago we have been treated so fairly and honestly by them that we cannot ever imagine changing companies. Kudos to Dave and Barb and all those who work for them.

***

LINDEN SOFTBALL SURE got lucky getting a ready-made ace pitcher recently. Good luck.

***

TO THE PERSON or people who know the identity of the Tyrone Township cat killer; please do the right thing and contact the authorities.

***

CONTACT YOUR SENATOR to ask why they (Democrats and Republicans) voted against Rand Paul’s Penny Plan to balance the federal budget.
