A big thank you to the city of Fenton employees and the police department for working so hard. On a day that most people have off, they were out there bright and early making sure everything went well. Much appreciated; you all are awesome.

The Just Sayin’ column this past weekend was outstanding. You completely changed my mind about skateboarders. And your message about being a welcoming place for young people was excellent.

Thank you to the people in the Fourth of July parade who were reenacting the raising of the flag on Iwa Jima statue. It brought tears to my eyes. It was the best part of the entire parade.

IN HIS FOURTH of July speech, President Trump was emotional, unifying, and patriotic. He said ‘We share one home, one heart, and we are made by one almighty God.’ He spoke of American accomplishments and exceptionalism and gave a tribute to our military.

KEEP YOUR HEAD down around First and Second streets and Andover Woods in Fenton. It’s a fireworks war zone. Ridiculous.

***

HOW ABOUT FOLLOWING state law when it comes to fireworks? They are legal the day before, day of and day after a holiday. That’s it. Any other time is simply rude. My dog and several animals are scared to death but people just don’t care.

LINDEN STILL HAS not gotten the wakeup call on why students are leaving the district at a higher rate than surrounding districts. I’ll spell it out for you: Academic downslide, entrenched substandard athletic coaches, and last but not least, out of control bullying. Wake up! We are overdue for a change.

U.S. WINS WOMEN’S World Cup on Megan Rapinoe’s penalty, Rose Lavelle’s clincher.

IT WAS GREAT to read about Genusee Eyewear in Flint. Thank you Ali Rose VanOverbeke first for volunteering, then having the creativity and drive to get a start-up manufacturing company in Flint. We need more positive spotlights on what the town has going for it. Google, Amazon, and others where are you?

THE MOON DOESN’T stay in orbit around the Earth simply because of the Earth’s gravitational force on the moon. The moon also has a gravitational force on the earth, as can be seen by the tides on large bodies of water.

LET’S GET SOME southern border terms correct. The people, migrants, arriving at the southern border are potential immigrants unless they cross the border, not adhering to United States laws. If they do, then they are illegals and like any criminal, they should be jailed.

***

WE ALL PAY taxes, but we don’t all agree on how those dollars are spent. You don’t like a portion of your taxes supporting women’s health care? Boo hoo for your opinion, and keep it to yourself.

FANTASTIC LAKE FENTON fireworks. Thank you Case Island residents.

CLEAN ENERGY IS working in other cities and leading to benefits for low-income communities. If we demand a utility that is willing to make those investments in its neighborhoods, it will lower energy costs and create jobs.

***

JUST VOTED ‘NO’ for the sinking fund increase. Why? Some of those who have helped build and supported Fenton are being taxed into extinction. Until the state and city recognizes that senior citizens need lower taxes and the DDA charter is changed to permit funding for roads, etc., we will continue to vote ‘no.’

TO THE NEWBIE boat owners. Boats don’t have headlights. Those are docking lights and very annoying to everyone but you. You’re showing your lack of experience driving with them on.
