People seem to misunderstand the purpose of the census. The Constitution mandates that every person in the U.S. be counted every 10 years. Not just voters, or legal residents, everyone.

He needs to be fined $10,000 per day by NREPA for his violation. Who builds a bridge without permits just to access his VRBO?

C’mon people, if you don’t know you should be driving in a counter-clockwise direction on a lake to pull a wake boarder or tuber, get off the lake. It should have been a clue to you when every boat was going toward you on Lake Ponemah.

I don’t care how much I like a politician, I would never put a flag with their name on it in my yard because I am an adult.

GREAT JOB ON the recent opinion piece about skateboarding. It’s refreshing to hear someone support our youth. Our community needs more perspective like this. While the idea of an ‘anti-skateboarding device’ is offensive, it’s actually ridiculous. Does the city realize that skateboarders use rails for tricks? Maybe the joke is on them.

PLEASE STOP FEEDING bread and other processed foods to ducks and geese at the Fenton Millpond. It is not good for them and also leads to messy walkways where people want to walk and enjoy the park.

***

ANIMAL CONTROL SHOULD carry guns, but not for the abused animals out there. They should be trained properly on how to deal with these angels. The guns should be for their abusers. The Genesee County Operations Committee should spend their efforts on investigating animal abuse and making it a felony.

***

IMMIGRANTS MUST ACTUALLY cross the border to apply for sanctuary status.

JUST READ THE wording for the ‘sinking fund’ proposal for Fenton schools. The person who wrote that must be real smart with words. You can barely understand what he is saying. Good thing I already knew that it means my taxes will go up. So, maybe they should have called it a ‘rising fund.’

***

MAYBE THE PERSON who raises funds for DDA can also fundraise for proper road repair.

***

WHEN WILL FENTON buy property across from Ellen Street Campus? That would have made a super parking lot instead of expensive sculptures. Just wondering.

***

I’M GLAD THE U.S. women won the soccer championship, however, I wish they had shown more class while celebrating.

***

THANKS TO WHOEVER stole the Fourth of July ornaments from my front yard in Holly. I’m a senior citizen who doesn’t have a lot of extra money so I won’t be replacing them.

***

IF I CAN just walk across the southern U.S. border and gain entry into the United States without any paperwork why do I need a passport to prove my citizenship in order to come in from Canada and wait 75 minutes? Why is the only border control enforced at airports and northern border crossings?

***

MICHIGAN HAS BAD roads because, essentially, the whole state is a sandy, marshy peninsula surrounded by three of the largest bodies of water on the planet. Anyone who’s tried to maintain a trail, driveway or road through wetlands knows how challenging that is. Add to that the lenient weight requirements and the freeze/thaw cycle.

***

WELL SAID IN the Just Sayin’ column about skateboarders. My sons enjoy the sport. When they want a bigger challenge than from our own driveway, I take them to the skate park in Howell. I hope this column encourages our leaders and future developers of the need for a safe recreation area for preteen/teenage youth to enjoy.

GOOD ARTICLE CONCERNING off brands. As a former store director, I can tell you that you can save a lot buying house brands. Nonfood items is where the real savings can occur. Sometimes it’s a matter of taste and to ensure quality meat and produce trump cheaper cuts and products for the average shopper. 

***

WHAT IS GOING on in our Fenton Township subdivision? There is now a house with painted over vinyl siding that doesn’t match the neighborhood. I bet that instantly dropped the value of adjacent homes.

I SURE DO love cleaning up all the candy wrappers your brats leave in my yard after the parade each year. Learn to be a good parent or keep them at home.
