The Applefest road race was a huge success, which could not have happened without new race leadership. Congrats to the ladies from Boomers Boot Camp and volunteers. Job well done.

This list of craft beer and wine looks impressive for a first-year event at next weekend’s Bottles, Brews & News! It was all the talk at the bus stop this morning! I know my neighborhood crew will be there.

This ‘old person’ is excited for the new roundabout. It will be super funny to watch young people navigate it while texting.

TRUMP HAS DELIVERED results for Americans. The best economy/ jobs scenario in 50 years, better trade deals, lower taxes, improved VA care, success in stopping illegals from invading our borders, millions now off food stamps, and an agenda that is pro-life, pro-family, pro-religious liberty, and pro-America.

THE ROUNDABOUT CONSTRUCTION traffic traveling eastbound is coming left of the orange barrels and I am being met head on. Fenton police say contractor is to mark and direct traffic. Officer on patrol talk to them, again. Someone is going to get killed. Clearly mark the construction area.

***

THE DEMOCRATS WANT all of us to pay for free college and college loans. They are great at spending other people’s money. Loans signed for should be paid back, especially when these monies are being used for new cars, condos, vacations in Mexico and Europe, and hundreds of dollars in alcohol.

YOU CAN SMELL fall in the air. It’s such a sad time of year.

SEND BETO TO get the guns without due process.

***

THE OIL PRICES are skyrocketing and we don’t import any oil from the Middle East. In fact, we export oil because we don’t need all that we produce. It’s profiteering by oil companies. Don’t buy anything from gas stations except gas. Send them a message. Treat us fairly or you will lose your customers that buy everything else in your stations.

***

SO, THE FENTON public schools wasted $20,000 of taxpayers’ money on a special election in August that they knew they were not going to win. Now they want to renew the sinking fund for only three years instead of the usual 10. Smells fishy to me. Stay tuned.

***

TO THE PERSON who chooses to drive below the speed limit. Why don’t you pull over and let people pass you? Seems to me that people like you get off on irritating people.

***

TO UAW MEMBERS. If you don’t like your job, you can always quit. GM didn’t force you to come to work for them. Where else could you get a job at $17-plus/hour, health care, and good profit sharing? You don’t have to strike.

***

THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS get tax money, state money, federal money, lottery money, school of choice money and who knows what else in donations. Now they say they need a sinking fund? I say learn to live within your means.

***

NOW THAT APPLEFEST has ended, I hope St. John’s Church feels an obligation to repair all the extensive damage that was done to the lawn in the areas where the visitors and carnival travel trailers were parked.

***

AS PRESIDENT TRUMP battles ‘the Swamp’ in D.C., I’m reminded of a well-known saying. ‘There are a lot of bad Republicans, but there are no good Democrats.’ How true.

***

THE ORGANIZERS OF the Night of Hope in Linden should think about the scripture Matthew 6:5, ‘When you pray, don’t be like hypocrites. They like to stand in synagogues and on street corners to pray so that everyone can see them.’

***

MY FAMILY WENT to Applefest. Each year there are more and more people and lots of kids with no adult supervision. There are way too many people in such a small area. How safe is it if something were to happen? St. John’s needs to limit the number of people.

***

WHY WOULD ANYONE think they should laugh at older people using the roundabout. Nowadays, it’s the younger driver that doesn’t even know when to use their turn signals. As an older driver it won’t bother me.

***

THE WINNER OF the Democrat debate was Trump. The Socialist free-for-all showed the Dems are for big government, higher taxes, disastrous climate plans, unrestricted abortions, unrestricted immigration (and will use our tax monies to pay for healthcare and living expenses for illegals) and destroy America with a radical agenda.

***

IN RESPONSE TO knives, clubs and hammers can be used as weapons. You don’t kill 13 people in a big store with a knife, club or hammer. You don’t kill 17 kids in a high school with a knife, club or hammer. Assault rifles should be banned.

***

IT LOOKS LIKE the politics of Fenton football still haven’t changed. First string remains in the game to the end even when the score is 50-0. As long as the first string kids’ parents work with the head coach, the other 30 team members will dress to just stand the sidelines. Such a disgrace.

***

TEXAS GUNMAN MADE an illegal gun purchase from an illegal unlicensed gun maker. No background law would stop this. We need to stop the illegal manufacturing and sale of guns by unlicensed dealers. Taking guns that are legally purchased leaves only criminals with guns. Not a good solution.

***

TAKE AWAY MY self-paid private health insurance, take away my legally purchased guns, take away my purchase of meat. No thanks Democrats, I’ ll keep President Trump and the Republicans.

***

HAVE SOME RESPECT and stop blowing your diesel smoke on everyone. Your confidence issues and lack thereof are on full display.

***

IF A RESIGNATION/retirement is voluntary, the village council would not vote on it. In retirement, you get your exit package and that’s it. You do not negotiate terms between attorneys and have council vote on said terms. Story was forced out.

***

ATTENDED A SOCCER game at FHS Sunday morning. Bathrooms filthy, no toilet paper in half the stalls, soap empty, garbage cans on field overflowing. I can only imagine what the visiting teams thought. I was ashamed.

***

A big thank you to the Schmelter family and all the volunteers for a wonderful evening of music, friendship and giving back so much to the community.
