•No Name: “I read in TalkBack about the credit freeze that is supposed to take place Sept. 23 and it is supposed to involve all three credit bureaus. I’ve never heard of that. Can you explain what that is all about?”
My apologies; I should have corrected the caller. Credit freezes are nothing new; you can do it now. What happens Sept. 23 is that the credit reporting companies will have to offer the service for free. What gets frozen is access to your credit report. When you apply for credit, the bank, credit card company or whatever asks either Experian, TransUnion or Equifax for your record. Unfortunately, identity thieves have figured out how to request the reports as well and use them to defraud consumers. If your report is frozen, the crooks can’t get it and your money is safer.
•Debbie from Port Huron: “What No Name does not state is this landlord has spent more than $8,000 on this property and now it is a better example of what this neighborhood can be. The fix-it-or-ticket program as adopted was to be corrective and not punitive. Mr. Harris cares more about our neighborhoods than James Freed.”
If the property is now exemplary, then it is working as intended.
•No Name: “We need to stop Ice Mountain from stealing billions of gallons of our water. I’m surprised and disappointed that none of the candidates for governor has made this an issue.”
Grain of salt, but Gretchen Whitmer’s platform includes taking the water back from Nestle.
•Harvey Road Resident: “Isn’t it illegal for people to be blocking your mailboxes with their cars? A couple of times I didn’t get my mail because the mailman couldn’t get to my box. One time he added a note on there, ‘Mailbox blocked.’ I brought it to their attention to quit blocking the mailboxes but they are still doing it.”
It’s illegal. If they won’t cooperate, call the sheriff.
•Kevin from St. Clair: “I was just wondering if anybody knows when the Range Road-Brown Street-Carney Drive intersection is going to be open again. I’d ask the county road commission but they didn’t bother to tell anyone when it was closing.”
Don’t blame the road commission. That’s a city project. It is expected to wrap up Tuesday.
