I saw the article about Makenzie Lawson. I just wanted to tell her that her beautiful smile and positive attitude will help her beat that cancer. It makes a difference. I know because I am in remission from two kinds of cancer now.

I want to thank the Linden Angel Tree for helping me with Christmas gifts for my two girls. Also a huge ‘thank you’ for the people who bought the gifts. Merry Christmas.

This is my grown up Christmas list: Peace on Earth, good will toward men.

TO THE HOT-LINER that said the right to say ‘Merry Christmas’ isn’t made up. No, it’s not. I’ve actually had store employees tell me they were not allowed to say Merry CHRISTmas.

GREAT STUFF LAST weekend for area residents. I gotta say, though, Linden’s parade was the best. Fenton’s was okay, if you’re into fire trucks.

DOES IT OCCUR to Hannah that the reason we have the most economic prosperity is because our government doesn’t confiscate all our income (yet) for distribution to social programs like paid family leave. If you want free college, health care, daycare, etc., say goodbye to all that prosperity.

WHY DO PEOPLE drive on Shiawassee like there is no speed limit and without regard for others? I avoid this and go on Silver Lake or North roads.

IF YOU CAN’T control your aggressive dogs, then please stop walking them downtown. It’s terrifying to be snarled and lunged at while the owners stare at their phones and pretend they don’t notice.

BRAND NAME DRUG prices continue to rise at record levels. The 12 top-selling name brand drugs in the U.S. have increased in cost by 68 percent since 2012, and a top-selling name brand arthritis drug costs $58,000 a year, which is more than the average annual income in Michigan. Executive greed.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE never been able to accept the 2016 election and have been pushing our country into a further divide. They have pushed us to the brink of a civil war, which they fail to realize will be their final loss. We all need to wake up and work together to preserve our great country.

HEY LIVINGSTON COUNTY roads, what’s the definition of Center Road? It means drive in the center of both lanes to avoid all the potholes. Fix the d#$n roads, please.

THERE IS NO evidence of wrongdoing by either Biden, as there is no evidence of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.

REP. ELISSA SLOTKIN (D-Holly) and Rep.

The government gives our wealth away to the very richest people in the country and then makes us fight for scraps. The money we make for the richest people sits and does nothing for us. Poor people aren't the problem. The super rich and the sympathizers are the problem.
