Lynn awaits decision on house arrest, seniors face mounting danger in heat wave

    Good morning, Feeders!

    As you recover from staying up way too late to watch the fireworks last night, Dave Davies and Lizz Fiedler are braving the heat.

    Lizz is at the Liberty Bell where Occupy National Gathering’s 99 Mile March to Wall Street will begin.

    Taunya English will look at family responsibility and laws that keep kids on the hook for their elderly parents’ care expenses.
