‘‘I live across the street from the LAFF Silver Lake Road trail and am so excited to seeing elders, dog owners, babies in strollers or on dad’s back, skateboards, bicycles, walkers, toddlers running by parents, teens walking home from school — all safe — all getting healthy exercise. Thank you, community.”

***

‘‘Life can be short, smile. Make someone’s day.”

***

‘‘Thank you, to the gentleman cleaning up North Road. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. Thank you for being a great neighbor.”

***

‘‘Hard to believe that it is October. Look around for the beauty of Michigan’s fall colors. Enjoy the two full moons this month.”

***

THERE SHOULD BE an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to exactly specify how, when, term length and all other details required to nominate judges to the Supreme Court so that politicians cannot cheat the American public out of a fair and unbiased process.

***

IF THEY HELD classes in a restaurant, they could let the kids take their masks off.

***

IF THE OWNER of the building on Fenway and Alloy could take the plants out they put on city property that block the view when trying to turn, that would be great.

***

TO THE PERSON who is ‘voting for anyone against Trump.’ Apparently, you haven’t done your research because he has done more for the country in three years than any past president.

***

YOU SHOW YOUR true ignorance when you say you would vote for anyone but Trump.

***

BEFORE YOU SAY Trump hasn’t done anything, take a second and Google his accomplishments. Do your homework. Don’t just repeat what you hear on CNN.

***

VERA, IT MAY be true that RBG fought for the rights of women, but now some of those rights are being threatened by the concept that everything is acceptable. Men that are transitioning into women and then competing in women’s sports are defeating the athletic abilities of biological women.

***

IN THE 50 years I’ve been voting in elections, they’ve been telling me that the Republicans are going to take away my Social Security in order to get elected.

***

WE GET IT. You don’t like our president. Oh well. We didn’t like Obama. We wish our local schools had a rule that teachers cannot post their biased opinions on social media. We sure hope that your personal feelings about politics are left out of the elementary classroom.

***

ELISSA IS WRONG in her idea. U.S. citizens should have access to healthcare, end of story. Taxpayers shouldn’t be providing it or subsidizing it. We need to stop providing things for free or at discounted rates to everyone.

***

THOSE WHO KNOW won’t vote for Joe.

***

I’M HAPPY THAT Trump downplayed the so-called seriousness of the flu they call COVID-19. Imagine our president in a complete panic and telling us all to be afraid. It would be pure pandemonium. As a parent, you don’t try to freak your kids out about things.

***

GRETCHEN’S DAYS OF tyranny are coming to an end very soon. The people of Michigan have stood up and are taking back their freedom.

***

IF MASKS WORK, why the 6 feet? If the 6 feet works, why the masks? If they both work, why the lockdown? Time to open Michigan.

***

I THINK SOME people actually like wearing a mask. They buy masks to match their outfit, some with cute sayings on them. Sad that they’ve bowed down to the dictator and are taking pleasure in being silenced.

***

TO THOSE PUSHING absentee voting. You’d better never go into a store or any business if you’re too afraid to exercise your right to vote because of COVID-19. The polling locations are safe. Take the time to get in line and vote in person. Do not mail in your ballots.

***

TO THE RISK taker to survive today’s society but not COVID-19. It is incumbent on you to not take the risk, i.e. staying away from crowds, wearing a mask (which really doesn’t work), and other precautions. Take personal responsibility to avoid the virus.

***

LOOKS LIKE THE Democrats are repeating the same platform they had last election. Trump will end Social Security. Trump has been in office for three years. If he wanted to end it, it would have happened by now. Same old scare tactics.

***

IF YOU’RE SICK of being controlled by your government then stand up to them. Stop wearing a mask. If asked to wear one, simply tell them you’re exempt. They cannot legally say another word to you.It is like living in the Twilight Zone with all the robots walking around with their mouths silenced.

***

SOMETIMES I THINK this country deserves Joe Biden. They have to criticize how President Trump greeted his wife and Chris, your father is rolling over in his grave.

***

C’MON FENTON. GET your act together and find a way to get ALDI in Fenton. Frankly, I’m tired of driving to Grand Blanc to shop. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

***

TO THE PERSON who said ‘you heard it here first’ saying Joe Biden would skip the debate. You were wrong, so will you do something Trump has never done and admit you were wrong?

***

HEY HOT-LINER QUESTIONING why wearing masks hasn’t stop the spread of the virus. It’s because of all the social gatherings at parties, weddings, bars, sporting events, returning to schools, all thinking, ‘it won’t happen to me.’ Wear a mask, wash your hands and for heaven’s sake social distance.

***

IF THE GOVERNMENT were to issue a decree prohibiting the wearing of masks, there would be rioters demanding the right to wear a mask. So, so many people just never got past the age of 12 it seems.

***

SEAT BELTS SHOULD be optional. If you are at risk or just afraid of a car crash, maybe you should be the one to wear one if you really believe they work. If you can’t do this, it is really best that you just stay home and let the rest of us live our lives.

***

TO ALL YOU parents who refuse to make your kids ride the bus enjoy dealing with the mess you create at the schools every day.

***

WHEN DID WE become so divided and hateful? Don’t we make a better world when we have empathy and compassion?

***

GOOD THING WE have Tucker Carlson on Fox News at 8 p.m. every night. He’s one of just a few journalists who speaks the truth and actually asks the hard questions. We recently began watching him and are just appalled by what the other stations are broadcasting.

***

AT LEAST ELISSA Slotkin went to school in Michigan, not California. She served our country and has proven she can work across the aisle. I’m especially pleased that she is championing the cleanup of PFAS water.

***

ALL OF YOU voters who have voted absentee for years, please do your civic duty and get those ballots in as soon as you receive them. I like to drop them off at the clerk’s office. Less chance of a person to ‘misplace’ them.

***

THAT WAS QUITE a hailstorm for Oct. 1.
