Do your dogs freak out when there are fireworks outside?  Mine do.  So it would be fine if that were only one day a year.  However, my neighbors consider 4th of July a week before and a week after.  Fireworks every night.  How do explain THAT to my dogs??

VIDEO -      ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama has laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, the final resting place for many American war heroes.
     Obama rode by motorcade from the White House to the hallowed burial grounds in suburban Virginia on a sun-splashed, but cool spring holiday. Cannon fire was heard in the distance.
     An Honor Guard stood at attention along the road that carried the president to tomb site. The headstones at the national cemetery were adorned with mini-American flags.
     Appearing before a hushed crowd at the venerable cemetery, Obama strode with uniformed military officers to the site of the Tomb and set the wreath in place after the playing of the National Anthem.
     The president was to give a speech following the wreath-laying.

  ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Virginia landmark and tourism attraction once owned by Thomas Jefferson is up for sale.
     The privately owned Natural Bridge in Rockbridge County is being put on the market, along with Natural Bridge Caverns and a 150-room hotel.
     Roanoke-based Woltz & Associates is marketing the tourist attraction.
     Woltz & Associates owner and president Jim Woltz tells The Roanoke Times ( ) that the 1,600-acre property will be divided and listed by tracts. Potential buyers could purchase only the 215-foot-high limestone arch, or every tract.
     The property's primary owner is Washington, D.C., businessman Angelo Puglisi. Woltz says Puglisi wants the bridge to remain open to the public.
     Woltz would like to see the bridge become a national or state park. He plans to contact federal and state officials about purchasing it.

  BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - A parking garage has partially collapsed outside a shopping mall in suburban Maryland, and officials say one construction worker who was trapped has died.
     Montgomery County rescuers worked to stabilize the structure to free a second worker for more than four hours on Thursday. Officials say it appears a 50,000-pound section of the parking deck collapsed outside a Macy's store.
     Fire Department spokeswoman Beth Anne Nesselt says one man died. The second worker, who was freed about 6 p.m., has serious injuries.
     Assistant Fire Chief Scott Graham says rescuers confirmed there were no other people inside the structure. 
     The parking deck was under construction during the collapse and was not open to the public.
     Video from the scene showed a large concrete slab appears to have fallen out of place.

  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's U.S. senators have introduced a bill to allow offshore energy leases off the coast of Virginia.
     Democratic Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine introduced The Virginia Outer Continental Shelf Energy Production Act of 2013 on Wednesday.
     Warner has introduced similar legislation the past two years. Sales of leases off the Virginia coast were scheduled to begin in 2011 but were delayed until 2017 after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. 
     The Sierra Club of Virginia opposes the legislation. In a statement, the club offshore drilling would risk more than 100,000 jobs in industries that depend on a healthy ocean and Chesapeake Bay and clean beaches.
