Use caution as you celebrate this July 4th … Many at the nearby lakes, the beach and across the state and nation … It will be a hot, hot day and weekend…

Think back over the years to your best July 4th holiday memories … Many on the roadways to and from vacation type locations…

There will be brave souls, no doubt, grilling-out … bless you … not me … I prefer the cool air-conditioned locations … at the lake, beach or home…

Crops continue to suffer … Stock market continues strong … Strong play at the local golf course … based on the number of vehicles … there…

Stay cool, best you can … Need to get out and move around … Enjoy the lakes and the local sales at retail outlets in the area … A wide assortment of food places in the area … all open today … Well most, if not all…
