The average American working in the private sector got an increase last year of about 84 cents per hour.

People driving boats and pontoons need to be reminded that they are to travel in a counter clockwise path around the lake. Owners, be sure to remind your teenage kids this too before we have an accident out on the lake.

I can’t wait for my kids to get out of school for the summer. I think their little brains need a break from school work. I’m so glad our schools don’t force a year-round schedule.

KILDEE AND ANANICH should practice what they preach. Kildee is name-calling in response to Trump’s ‘temper tantrum’ and Ananich is using the event to drive divisiveness. All politicians should stop acting like teenagers and put their phones and social media away.

WELL, IGNORANT BOATERS were out in full force this weekend. Saw a speedboat pulling two tubes full of little kids. They went past a slow moving pontoon way too close. If one of those kids had bounced out of the tube, they could have hit the side of the pontoon.

TRUMP’S BEEN TRYING for two years to get congressional support for increased border security and wall. Democrats said no. Now thousands of illegal immigrants and unaccompanied children are here. Democrats are blocking funds for programs to care for them. Imagine 1,000 people bused here to care for.

IS NANCY PELOSI a Chinese agent? Someone wanted Pelosi to act like an adult. She is from California; that is not going to happen.

DEMOCRATS SAID TRUMP committed an impeachable crime. Do you support costly, time consuming impeachment proceedings versus waiting for election and work on immigration, trade deals, foreign relations?

HECK WITH SILVER Parkway. Time to paint new lines on Owen Road, especially the U.S. 23 overpass. Coming off the freeway at night and you can’t see where the lines are at all and it’s impossible to see them any time of day if it’s raining. Surprised we haven’t seen more accidents there, too.

JUST A FEW corrections from May 24 Hot lines. Trump’s term(s) will end January 2025, thanks to the Dems running it. Flint had water problems long before Gov. Snyder entered the picture, and if you want men involved in the birth control then men should have a say in any abortion decisions.

***

FLINT’S WATER WAS not poisoned. The change to river water was to save money for a bankrupt city. Flint Water Department forgot to put chemicals in to keep the lead pipes used by residents to prevent leaching. Flint Water Department failed to check water at the homes.

MICHIGAN LAWMAKERS ARE largely all talk, little action when it comes to their financial transparency.

***

FENTON AREA PUBLIC Schools superintendent already has a ‘Plan B’ if the sinking fund ballot measure fails in August; revote in November.

***

IN MAY 26 edition of Tri-County Times, Flint Hispanic leader decrees, ‘White people can’t say that because they are white.’ So who is the real racist?

***

WOW, TALK ABOUT changing the subject, wow. You blame Snyder and emergency management but refuse to look at Snyder’s record. You must be a current or former Flint resident looking to ease a guilty conscience for having poisoned your own kids at the ballot box.

***

I agree with the person who mentioned the Fourth of July parade. The last couple of years it has been nothing but a giant advertisement joke. If you want to be in the parade, do a float. Celebrate the holiday; it’s the day of our freedom.

***

I AGREE THAT a woman and her doctor are best qualified to make decisions on her health care. But who is taking the child into consideration and making the best decision for them? They didn’t ask to be brought into this world but once they are a viable fetus they need an advocate to speak for them.

***

WHEN YOU BUY a new house in a new sub at the end of an existing neighborhood, show some respect for the neighborhood you drive through to get to your new home. Slow down. Watch out for our kids.

***

TO THE PERSON who quoted Abraham Lincoln regarding Memorial Day. He died three years prior to the holiday being established. Memorial Day was established by John A. Logan and it was originally called Decoration Day. Read your history books.

***

I KEEP SEEING townships opting out of medical marijuana establishments, which bring in millions in tax revenue. Fenton Township is getting ready to vote. We continue to be taxed to death, for roads, schools, etc. Why should we pay more taxes when there is a huge opportunity to increase tax revenue by hundreds of thousands of dollars staring us in the face?

WE’RE SO GLAD Lake Ponemah has a new restaurant. Let’s wish them success.
