FOURTH OF JULY PARTY: How to throw a memorable Fourth of July party - With Mother Nature as your co-host, you can throw a memorable Fourth of July or other summertime party for very little cost. By Saimi Bergmann, Canton, Ohio.
JEFF VRABEL: It is too hot to write a column with a point - Well, it's official: It is too hot to be funny. It is a proven scientific fact that no comedy is possible upwards of 102 degrees — findings, in fact, were just published in the June issue of JAMA (their annual beach issue! Look for the cover with Kate Upton!). And as the national hotness average is currently topping out at 135, except in Arizona, which is entirely on fire, we are giving up on writing a humor column this week and sticking to something considerably more temperature-appropriate. By Jeff Vrabel, GHNS.
LESSONS FROM CANCER: Life is easier one moment at a time - It is deadline time again, and again I’m against the clock. And there is so much to think about that this short piece today may help me reflect on the myriad topics that anyone who is dealing with major illness or adversity must face. Because that in itself is so mind-boggling to comprehend, it might be best to go back to the basics of what is really most important now and derive some comfort there. By Joyce Rothman.
HOME HELP: Outdoor lighting - Weekly Home Help, with outdoor lighting tips, the Sony NSZ-GS7 Internet Player, a home-selling tip and more. By GHNS.
LORETTA LAROCHE: Beginning of the end? Incivility on a school bus - My elementary school years were spent in a public school whose principal, Ms. Winters, had to have been a former mercenary for a Third World dictator. No one ever dared to cross Ms. Winters or any of the teachers who were her clones. By Loretta LaRoche, The Patriot Ledger.
IN GOOD FAITH: Everybody loves a parade! - “Everybody loves a parade!” Isn’t that the conventional wisdom? If that’s the case there must be a lot of happy people on the Fourth of July since thousands of parades take place all over the country. From sea to shining sea they’re striking up the marching bands, turning over the ignitions on antique cars and hoping their old uniforms still fit. The local politicians and this year’s Little League champs are in their glory. By The Rev. Tim Schenck, Hingham, Mass.

RICK HOLMES: Burning questions on climate - Millions of species are adapting to rapidly changing climate. Why aren't humans? By Rick Holmes, MetroWest, Mass.
JARED OLAR: What was John Roberts thinking? - I sure didn’t see that one coming. Perhaps like most observers, I expected that if the Supreme Court upheld "Obamacare" as constitutional, it would probably be a 5-4 verdict with the opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has developed a well-deserved reputation as the purportedly moderate “swing” vote in a nine-member panel that includes four dependably conservative justices and four dependably liberal ones. By Jared Olar, Pekin, Ill.
EDITORIAL: For a day, Congress gets its act together - So they can get something done, after all. On Friday, in the wake of the Supreme Court's landmark decision on the constitutionality of the hotly contested health care bill, Congress put aside its differences for a day and passed a bill that includes two measures on which they had earlier deadlocked: transportation funding for the next two-plus years and an extension of a student loan subsidy. By Peoria, Ill.
ALIX KUNKLE: We've made too many rules - You have to buy health insurance. You can't call it sex-ed anymore. We've got too many darn rules. Whatever happened to our own common sense? By Alix Kunkle, Leesville, La.

GREG ZYLA: How much is ’69 Corvette worth? - Greg, I enjoy reading your articles. I have a 1969 Corvette Sting Ray with a 427 horse big block and just 50,000 miles. It still has the original four-speed, has a convertible and hardtop, and green original paint. The engine is the 390-horsepower version and it is in good condition. It also has a new top, tires and exhaust. The seats are reupholstered, too. What do you feel it would be worth? By Greg Zyla, GHNS.
