Kudos to all Lake Fenton residents who came out to cheer, encourage and thank the Venetian Boat Parade. Some of you were on docks, decks, boats and peering through your windows. We appreciate you.

I love being downtown supporting our local restaurants. Even better? Sitting outside. Only a few months out of the year when it’s possible, so let the community sit outdoors.

People who speed on Bennett Lake Road need to know there are four law officers living on that road and you are being watched.

HEALTH CARE IS not a human right. It is your human right to fill your face with greasy cheeseburgers until you are defined as ‘morbidly obese’ but the right to correct your destructive behaviors with modern medicine is not a ‘human right.’ Get a dictionary.

TAKE MY BIKE elsewhere, yet, support local? You can’t have one without the other. Show me a town where pathways have negatively impacted the community.

I'M SURE THAT all the Obama lovers got work in his shovel-ready jobs.

LET'S COMPARE IMMIGRANTS and unions. Originally, unions were great for everyone but the union that built Flint eventually caused the destruction of the city. Same with immigrants who originally built the country are great but having too many unskilled now is destroying America.

I WISH THAT the Fenton traffic manager would look at two ridiculous traffic signals on Dauner/LeRoy and Owen Road/Rounds. The timing is unbelievable.

WOW, ALL THIS talk about a drawbridge and you allow 17 more slips on Silver Lake without considering the impact to the lake and environment?

LET ME GET this straight. You are an 80-year-old forgetful senior with no pension. Why would you be wasting money on lottery tickets? Seems like you have more important things to spend your money on.

OBAMA WAS DOGGED by investigations into the Internal Revenue Service’s treatment of conservatives and his administration’s loan guarantee to the failed solar-panel startup, Solyndra, and much more.

DO YOU THINK AOC and the other freshmen Democrats know that impeachment is more than a popularity contest? Nancy Pelosi (much as she is disliked) does understand.

NO REMAINS OF U.S. service members have been returned since last summer and the U.S. suspended efforts in May to get negotiations on the remains back on track in time to have more repatriated this year.

IN MY AMERICA, health care should be a human right and not just the right of the ‘well to do.’ Sorry about your America, better hope you don’t find yourself ‘in need’ sometime.

THE ENJOYMENT OF the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition.

RONALD REAGAN DESTABILIZED Central and South America. He gave away our country to the rich. He ignored the AIDS crisis.

PUBLIC EDUCATION AT the federal level may never recover from DeVos.

A right to health care? It requires someone's labor to provide you with that. You have a right to someone's labor? They must just give it to you? Who has a right to your labor?
