Attended our first farmers market and concert in downtown Fenton. In addition to the beautiful weather, it was a great evening.

To my neighbors in downtown Linden. When you are done with your bonfires at night, could you please douse them with water? Many fires smolder all night producing smoke and the smoke fills our home. Enjoy your bonfire, for sure, but please be respectful of others. Thanks.

‘Any member of city council who responds to a growing business with ‘we need another ordinance’ ought not be on city council.

Elmwood subdivision needs roads fixed desperately. Promised two years ago and still not done. Patches on patches on patches. Really? Our roads need help.

AGREED, FREE SPEECH is an American value: disloyalty is not. Do not confuse the two.

SIMPLE-MINDED DEMOCRATS rail against Russian interference then adopt the exact same strategy by advocating external interference in a sovereign state of Kentucky election. Kentucky voters will decide if Senator McConnell keeps his seat, not you.

WHAT KIND OF role model do we parents like to see in the White House? I want to see a proud American. God bless Trump.

GOVERNMENT CANDIDATE’S GENDER, race, or speaking abilities do not matter, unless you’re a Democrat. Then gender, race and sexual identity are the only characteristics that matter.

Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.

AS A DEMOCRAT citizen, I would like to respond to the person who called us out. No Democratic candidates support open borders. They support technology that can see through trucks to arrest coyotes bringing illegals and drugs. They support more personnel to handle asylum requests They do not support separating children from moms.

HEY REVISIONIST, NICE try. Central American chaos started with the widespread onset of Communist values throughout the region, all of which occurred under the cowardly, isolationist administration of President Carter. You can thank Reagan for peaceful and prosperous Panama, Costa Rica and Belize.

KNOW THIS: ALL the race baiting, deceit and bullying that Democrats hate about President Trump are the core skills and ideology of their party. Democrats are hysterical simply because Trump is beating them at their own game.

REGARDING THE SCHOOL fund. I wonder if the average person could sit on all that valuable land like the big hunk they have there on Hickory Ridge in Rose Township and ask for more money.

REGARDING THE COMMENT of the week on DDA funding. The state of Michigan needs to end or revise the 1975 DDA enactment to stop municipalities from using tax funds for pet projects, ‘because it’s DDA funds’ when the municipality cannot afford to maintain its primary infrastructure, roads, buildings, etc.

I SHAKE MY head when I read people’s comments on the Times Facebook page. Do people really not know the difference between Fenton Township and Fenton City? They are two totally separate government entities with different millages and assessments.

WHAT HISTORY BOOKS are your liberal readers are getting their ‘facts’ from. When Obama left office, the GNP was under 2 and Obama said it would never be above 3 again. It is now at 4 and still rising. All measures of a successful economy are showing a healthy economy. Liberals are just ignoring facts.

IN TODAY’S SITUATION I want neither Hillary nor ‘The Don.’

Not sure where you're getting your GNP numbers from, but the Federal Reserve Economic Data website shows that the year-over-year, inflation-adjusted increase in the GNP was 2.9 in 2010, and subsequent years were : 1.8, 2.2, 1.8, 2.5, 2.8, 1.6, 2.5, and was 3.0 in 2018. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/A001RL1A225NBEA
