59:38 minutes (54.61 MB)

Tonight on the Show, it's America's Birthday. How is everyone celebrating (or not - remember COVID-19 is still with us, and the Delta Variant is very concerning, so be careful out there)?

Weekend Warrior highlights some events OTHER than July Fourth, because those events get their own segment. And, a recap of the first Juneteenth as a Federal Holiday.

Tonight on the show, we speed through a lot in 61 minutes.

Musical Political Chairs:
- The big names in the running to replace former Congressman Steve Stivers. 14 Candidates - 12 Republicans, 2 Democrats, 1 Primary, 1 Special Election. As if Upper Arlington didn't need another Election in 2021, they've got two more.

COVID-19:
- The End of the Shutdown is Here. On June 2, 2021 - ALL Health Orders issued by the State of Ohio will cease to be. It will be up to businesses to decide whether or not people wear masks.

- The COVID Cancel Bug claimed another major casualty on May 20 - Red, White, & Boom (and as of the posting of this show - Summer Jam West was also cancelled last week, as well). And why (Hublin) the Suburbs (Upper Arlington) have moved on (Whiteholdsburg) from Boom (New Albany), and are planning on doing the Fourth anyway (more on that in Show # 383, which will drop in five weeks).
