We are all blessed to be part of this Fenton community. We keep reading and hearing about how area churches and organizations are stepping up to help anyone.

Wow. Three weeks ago many people were complaining about teachers. Now, kids are home — they all respect what teachers do every day. Hmmm.

***

It’s great seeing local business owners directly communicating with their valued customers on Facebook. The interaction is so important right now. I doubt you can do this with big box stores. Shop local!

Thank you to the lady on March 10 who bought my sister’s and my lunch at Lucky’s restaurant. I already paid it forward. God bless you.

FENTON SCHOOLS’ TEACHERS, in contract negotiations, now getting a three week paid vacation due to coronavirus emergency. Will you also demand pay for the three-week make-up period at the end of the school year, doubt it. Give the school taxpayers a break.

TO THE HOT-LINER complaining about their child’s $70,000 student loan debt. This week the United States Army will pay off $60,000 of student loan debt for anyone who signs up for the Infantry. So bring your little snowflake to the nearest recruiter. Presto. Problem solved.

IT WOULD BE interesting to see if those who’ve had the flu shot are likely more, less or the same to contract COVID-19. Any information on that?

***

LOOK AT THE bright side. We are no longer hearing about Meghan Markle and the British Royals on the news. Thanks coronavirus.

***

I HOPE EVERYONE is better prepared for the next crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how fragile most of our society is.

***

IT IS THE responsibility of ‘parents’ to feed their children, not the schools. If the tax dollars were used to educate students and not spent on social programs this country would be in a much better state.

***

I FEEL GOOD that Gov. Whitmer has been proactive during this crisis. She has shown great leadership.

***

IT WAS SO nice to see the Michigan Health Care update in my mailbox today paid for by Bloomberg. He spent $2.5 million to get Slotkin elected in 2018. I wonder how much he’s going to spend now.

***

MY COLLEGE KIDDOS are home and taking this virus seriously. My in-laws and friends over 60 years of age think it’s a joke. They continue to go out as if they won’t be affected.

***

NEW YORK’S GOVERNOR is making a lot of sense. So glad he and the White House are working together during this crisis.

***

TO ANYONE WHO is concerned about the elderly in our community with the risks associated with the coronavirus, please contact VG’s and ask them to open an hour or two in the morning for elderly-only shopping to help reduce their risks.

***

THANKS TO THE City of Fenton for the roundabout at the south end of Torrey Road. Despite all the naysayers, it’s safer now than it ever has been. Problem identified, problem solved. Thank you.

***

FELLOW FENTONITES, PLEASE! We are better than this. Why are you hoarding stuff? The manufacturers are not, I repeat, not out of product. If you just shop as normal everything would be fine. Everybody’s going bonkers out there. It’s ridiculous.

***

NOW THAT PEOPLE have the time, why not purge your junk and clean up your property. Just driving around Fenton Township makes me wonder why people don’t take pride in their yards and community. If you were too busy before, take time now to clean. It costs nothing.

During times of crisis it amazes me what happens among the public. Through some of the confusion, there are many random acts of kindness. I’ve seen many people help others help neighbors that need it. And even during my couple trips to grocery stores have seen people thanking the cashiers for doing their jobs. It’s small acts like this that make me feel good about the human race.
