I THINK IT would be awesome if all the businesses in downtown Fenton would put up lights on their buildings like a couple already have. Everyone is coming to town for all the great restaurants, so let’s show off.”

THE HOLLY DICKENS Festival was great last weekend. We’ll be going back this weekend. We’re going to try to hit the festivals in Linden and Fenton too. Let’s hope we get a pretty snowfall.

I REALLY ENJOYED the Street Talk responses from Nov. 24 in which young grade school children indicated what they were thankful for. Awesome sentiments.

WELL, FENTON FINALLY got a break with our water bills; our trash collection rates went down. Low and behold, the city council voted for water rates to go up. Funny, I don’t remember this going to a vote with taxpayers.

YOU WANT TO ‘install some heated sidewalks and street downtown like Holland snowmelt system.’ You are talking about the new downtown sidewalks and streets, right?! How about redo all the taxpaying potholed and dilapidated neighborhood sidewalks and streets first.

WHY DO PEOPLE in Fenton Township continue to burn leaves? Do they not know it is a violation of our ordinances? All it does is create smoke and pollution around your neighbors, some who have breathing problems.

MICHIGAN WINTER. SIX months of darkness? Not so. Dec. 21 has the shortest amount of daylight, but it gets better each day after, slowly. Watch closely and you will realize it’s actually light out at 6 p.m. by the end of February. Enjoy.

THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH behind all the mass smash and grab robberies occurring nationwide is the role big tech has in coordination of the attacks. Social media companies need to immediately ban all looters using their platforms to coordinate the thefts.

IT IS FANTASTIC that road construction in town is done. Silver Lake Road at northbound U.S. 23 ramps is still dangerous. Some motorists let people exit or enter the highway while they wait for a red light. That gap makes for blind spots and there will be more accidents.
