Tomorrow, we will celebrate the 239th anniversary of a warm July day in Philadelphia, PA when 56 patriots pledged their lives, fortunes and honor to the independence of their newly formed United States of America. The Declaration of  Independence that they created and signed brought them war and difficulty but, with determination, inspiration and a little luck they came out on the other side with the greatest republic the world has yet seen, the good ol' USA.
Many local businesses and offices that are usually open on Saturday, including Radiogram service, will be closed on Saturday for the Independence Day Holiday Celebration.
It's expected that there will be lots of traffic on highways and the Texas DPS has extra patrols on duty with instructions to watch for possibly intoxicated drivers.
Area 4th of July Festivities include the Fort Hood event, which starts early, at 4pm in the afternoon. It's at Hood Stadium located behind the Clear Creek Post Exchange. 
Musical entertainment will include Jon Christopher Davis and Lone Star Attitude Band and 1st Cavalry Division Band will perform from 6-9:30pm.

They'll be back again on Monday with regular services, including Free Wi-Fi and the regular Wednesday Beta Mu Story Time at 10am, then on Thursday, the 23rd, they'll have a scrapbooking class to take care of that drawer-full of photos you're keeping. 
In May, the Austin airport saw over a million passengers go through the facility. The data hasn't been tallied yet but they say it is expected to show even bigger numbers in both June and July. 
The heavy load at the airport is for some obvious reasons. Austin and its suburbs are growing faster than almost anywhere in the state, the economy is improving and people are better able to afford flights, and the services available at the airport are increasing. 
Not so many years ago Austin was a spot where you would get on a plane and fly to DFW, there you'd get on another plane to wherever

But Watch Kids Around Water
Lakes are full and rivers are flowing this July 4th. Already, 36 children have drowned in Texas this year, including three siblings - ages 9, 10 and 11 - who were pulled last week from an apartment pool in Irving. Apartment pools provide quick and convenient relief from the heat, but typically don't have lifeguards so extra caution is needed. Children should always be watched around pool gates and enclosures. 
With the state's recent widespread rainfall, water levels in lakes, rivers and creek beds are high, posing more danger to children - particularly toddlers - who are not properly supervised. In rural areas, stock ponds can also be dangerous. 
"Drowning is not what you think – it's quick and silent and happens before you know it," said Judge John Specia, commissioner of the
