Sarcasm does not translate well in the Hot lines. Please don’t send a ‘Thank you very much, I really appreciate....’ message when you are really dissatisfied, angry or upset by whatever. Just make your disparaging remarks and be done with it.

Nice article on the go-getter and future firefighter, Holly High School’s Logan Campbell.

Since the Torrey Road/ North Road intersection closed I began driving through downtown Fenton. Every day there is a gentleman in a wheelchair on Leroy Street who waves and smiles at everyone. He brightens my day and people wave or honk their horns. It’s a pleasant change from all the negativity.

***

Witnessed two drivers hop out of their cars yesterday in Fenton to help a driver of a broken down car push it out of the roadway. Love my town.

***

HEY PUT OUT better garbage and maybe he can afford to buy a muffler.

***

SO LINDEN’S SHUTTING down the downtown for a church to sing gospel, pray and try to get more people to come to their church and give them money. How can a city approve shutting down its city for a church? This church just needs more money for their ‘expansion.’

***

HERE’S THE LAST decade in Michigan education: Schools are getting worse. Teachers are getting paid less. We’ve barely increased state education spending. We’re not paying what we owe for teacher pensions and retiree health care, and a road-funding plan proposed by Lansing Republicans could make all of it worse.

***

LANSING REPUBLICANS SUCCESSFULLY fought Whitmer’s proposed tax increase to a standstill, without offering any viable alternative.

***

TO THOSE THAT don’t like the elderly, you will be there one day, if you are lucky.

***

TO THE SOCIALIST who thinks Trump is plundering our country. Perhaps you should ask some of the half million people now working if they would rather go back on welfare where they were under Democratic leadership.

***

TO THE GUN-hater. So you think guns are only for murdering people. Have you forgotten how guns created this country? Without guns, you likely would not be here. Guns fed this nation. They protected it. They fed, clothed and protected the nation. They forced other countries to respect our right to exist.

***

WHY WOULD YOU allow an Early 5 or kindergartner to walk to a bus stop by themselves in the first place? Take some responsibility and go with them.

***

PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW Trump would plunder the country when he doesn’t even take a salary for serving? He donates it to charity, unlike Obama, who doubled the presidential salary before leaving. Who is the plunderer?

***

DOG OWNERS WHO leave their dog tied up outside for hours/days/weeks/months on end — shame on you. Why would you get a pet if you don’t want him to be a part of your family? Why leave them outside?

***

GO AHEAD AND complain about young people texting but don’t come to us for help the next time you get confused and can’t figure out how to turn your phone on.

***

WELL, THE WOLVERINES laid a big fat egg again. Will they ever win a game (or even be competitive) against a good team during Harbaugh’s regime? How embarrassing. Maybe they should have paid him more. He is only making $40 million for coaching a team with a lot of talent to consistently mediocre finishes and zero Big Ten titles.

***

WE ARE ‘BABY boomers’ and our seven grandchildren love us very much.

***

AS A MILLENNIAL, I won’t have any trouble with the roundabout. Things like three or four-way stops I can’t seem to get right but whatever.

***

IF YOU OPPOSE the UAW striking, you are simple-minded and have been tricked into doing exactly what the rich want you to do. Opposing workers’ rights is un-American.

***

VILLAGE COUNCIL DOES vote to accept resignation. Look at the available history of meeting minutes.

***

TO THE PERSON who is excited about the roundabout because ‘it will be super funny watching old people try to figure it out.’ I am old and have gone out of my way to do kind things for years. Have you thought about helping an old person learn how to navigate a roundabout? Your disrespect is despicable.

***

IF GENESEE COUNTY and Fenton Township maintained Margaret Drive we wouldn’t be paying for it now. The road commission just started addressing potholes two years ago and Fenton Township has never done crack sealing, which is its part.

***

HOT-LINERS WILL WRITE anything, such as college loans. My two mid 30-year-olds pay hundreds every month on college loans. I assisted them financially and they still had debt. Not once did any loan money go for trips, cars or condos. There are always a few who abuse a situation and ruin the reputation of the many.

***

SLOWER DRIVERS ARE not driving slowly to irritate you or anyone else. Slower drivers are usually people who are elderly, young, perhaps ill, and perhaps adjusting to blood pressure or other medication their doctor demands. The irritating one here is ‘the tailgater.’

***

ACCORDING TO A lottery propaganda billboard I just saw, schools got $141 million this year. Put Fenton’s share in the sinking fund.

***

I FIND IT very interesting that many are behind getting rid of flavored vaping because it has killed 15 or 20 people. Maybe we should eliminate real cigarettes that kill tens of thousands each year.

***

Towing company, you should let your drivers know that throwing cigarette butts out the window is littering. Not a good look for the company either.

***

I AGREE WITH the Hot-liner who said fall is such a sad time of year. Why is everyone in a hurry for it to cool down when we waited so long for the warm weather?

***

TOO MANY PEOPLE at Applefest, an event that’s meant to bring the entire community together? How do you suggest limiting people? Suggestion — let’s start with you staying home.
