    This was the first Fun Fourth run by Downtown Greensboro Inc. and, particularly considering the limited time DGI had to plan for the event, it was a big success.  Estimates are that somewhere around 75,000 people made their way downtown Monday afternoon for the event, which included bands, food trucks, crafts and lots of activities for kids.

    Over 4,000 attended the kickoff party on Sunday evening and nobody knows how many people watched the fireworks from various places around town, but the downtown viewing areas were packed.

    In July 1974, after Evel Knievel announced his plans to jump Snake River Canyon on a motorcycle, a reporter asked him if he had a death wish.

    As we celebrate our country’s freedom this week it reminds me that Americans have a history of ensuring freedom, not only for us but for people around the world.  American men and women have given their lives to free others from tyranny and oppression.

    Dear Carolyn,

    What causes a parent to favor one child over another?  I am a father, divorced from my two children’s mother.  For the life of her, that “mother” cannot treat our daughter fairly and favors our son.   The children are now 9 and 11, and the daughter is older.  Both children are smart and in good health.  She just gave a lavish birthday party for the son, and I don’t think she did more than a cupcake for our daughter’s birthday.  Can I do anything to help the situation?

    FBI Director James Comey could have resigned.  Instead, he stood at the podium, outlined in some detail the crimes that Hillary Clinton had committed and then said that he wasn’t recommending she be indicted.  It didn’t make any sense.

    There is no convenient time to have your glasses break.  But some times are worse than others.  Take, for instance, a few days into your vacation at the beach.

    Well, everyone has been all abuzz this week about “Brexit,” so I might as well let that massive event inspire my column too.  If you don’t know, Brexit is the separation of Britain from the European Union and the separation of all of us from our retirement funds.
