Now that the cold and snow have arrived, I hope people will remember that their pets need special attention, too. Keep them safe, warm, well-fed and inside this winter.

I have never loved cooking, but since moving to Fenton I no longer feel guilty about my lack of culinary skills. The number of amazing restaurants in our community means my husband and I have a great, fresh meal every night!

***

I am so glad the roundabout at Torrey and North roads is complete. That used to be such a dangerous intersection. It looks great now and traffic seems to be flowing nicely. I bet the businesses there are relieved.

***

We are so happy that the Fenton schools sinking fund passed and want to thank the district administrators for sharpening their pencils and coming up with a different plan after the August vote failed. There is only so much a family can afford, but we’ve already been paying this. It’s all good.

***

FREE HAUNTED HALLOWEEN barn on Sharp Road was awesome again this year. Also the vortex tunnel and treats were, too. Wet weather but they all still did it. Great job.

***

EMPATHY ENTERS THIS world with most individuals at birth. Studies have shown that babies as young as 9 months innately demonstrate empathy. It is the ability to put yourself in others shoes and sympathize with their suffering.

***

ACCORDING TO MONEY Magazine, Barack Obama came to the White House with a little under a million dollars. He left eight years later having accumulated almost $40 million. And there’s no issues with the emoluments clause? I guess it depends on who you are.

***

DUMP THE ELECTORAL College? You are clueless if you think that’s a good idea.

***

ELIMINATING THE DDA would not result in better roads. Stop talking about the DDA. You have no clue what it is or how it works.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR senators and reps to support reductions in federal spending. Rand Paul’s 2-percent ‘penny plan’ reduction bill was just defeated by both Democrats and Republicans. You and I have to cut costs to meet our budgets.

***

WE ARE IN a civil war. This war isn’t Republican against Democrat but a war of the elitist globalists of both political parties against our national sovereignty. Trump is fighting against the globalists to preserve our independence as a nation. If Trump is removed, our American independence will be lost.

***

EVERY U.S. CITIZEN is personally financially responsible to cover paying off the federal deficit if the feds can’t get it done through taxes and spending control. Right now, each of us would owe $67,000, even my 1-year-old.

***

SO YOU WANTED $15 an hour. Now we have machines taking your jobs. Smart move, Millennials.

***

TO THE PERSON who said there are 40 Republicans involved in investigation to ask questions. You mean the questions that Schiff determines can be asked. You are definitely a liberal and only listen to one side. What are the actual charges in this charade? Grow up. We are not all dumb and do not plan to be subjected to their lies in 2020.

***

1960S / 1970S HIGH School Civics: We are not a pure democracy like Athens of ancient Greece, we are a representative democracy. One person, one vote elects electors for the Electoral College. The electors of the Electoral College elect the President.

***

WHO WOULD CHOOSE to live in a place guaranteed to have earthquakes, wildfires, mud slides and no homeowners insurance (latest issue)?

***

NEW YORK AND California need to continue doing what they do best, provide the United States with entertainment. When they wander into politics, they advocate strange things like popular vote, negating the vote-thinking Americans.

***

CAN WE ALL agree to remove the right lane on westbound Owen Road just west of the Walmart entrance? I’m tired of all the terrible drivers that buzz by everyone and cut into the lane before the neighborhood and nearly run others off the road.

***

THE DEMOCRATS PASSED their own impeachment inquiry rules this week. Not one of the Republicans’ 17 amendments were approved by Democrats. Only Democrats voted for their new rules, which require Schiff to approve any actions by Republicans.

***

HEALTH IS NOT everything, but without health, everything else is nothing.

***

TO NATIONAL SECURITY and Democracy at stake under Trump, and putting his needs first: I am willing to learn — please provide a couple of reasons. Thanks.

***

TO THE PERSON wondering if the people of California and New York should elect our president, in other words, get rid of the Electoral College. All you need to do is look at the condition of LA, Sacramento and San Francisco as well as New York. Also look at their taxes. Now tell me they’re smart enough to run a country.

***

YOU ARE WORRIED about national security? Trump is the leader you describe, the Democrats and leftists are the dividers and obstructionist. Build that wall.

***

WHY IS IT that I drive a 49-year-old truck that has zero rust on it but they cannot make a car that will last the life of the loan that is not full of rust. Sounds like it is on purpose to me.

GOV. WHITMER HAS cut $40 million to counties for veterans, cut Pure Michigan, no additional funding for charter schools that are already last in per pupil funding, but consistently out score regular public schools assessments, and the worst she cut millions for Autism. I thought liberals have a heart and are compassionate? Glad you voted for her?

***

IF THE FOOTBALL plays do not work please change the course. It is a shame our Lake Fenton boys keep having losing seasons and didn’t make the playoffs. We need new sports leadership at the school and new leadership overall. Good leaders would have seen this coming some time ago.

***

MY WIFE ASKED me, ‘If you had a friend or relative who told as many untruths as our President, would you support them?’ That’s when I realized I am not supporting Trump. I am going against Democrats. We need someone in the White House who has morals and values and follows the constitution.

***

TORREY AND NORTH is about to be the safest intersection in Fenton. Mostly due to boomers and older avoiding it.

***

PRETTY DISAPPOINTED TO hear a gentleman working at the post office talking about homeless people like they are human scum to the customer in front of me. Unprofessional. You don’t know everyone’s story, sir. You’d be surprised what a little empathy can do for your own life. Happy holidays.

***

I SEE THE millage for Fenton schools passed. Now when we go to watch the Fourth of July parade in Fenton, could we please have the high school band perform and march?

***

‘TO CHANGE THE Electoral College clause requires the Constitution be amended.’ Did you know it has been amended before? I bet you didn’t.

***

GREAT SPEECH LAST night by the hockey coach who won an award at the Fox Nation Patriot Awards. It was nice to see real heroes being awarded instead of actors winning awards for pretending to be a hero.

***

TO THE RUDE eavesdropping Millennial who accosted me (a 67-year-old woman) having a private conversation with my 9-year-old grandson, while having dinner at a local restaurant. Keep your Socialist views to yourself.
