What we’re working on for the Fourth of July

It may be a national holiday, but someone’s got to put a paper out! Take a look at what we’re working on today, from the Fourth of July Blast in Jacobus and a Fourth historic celebration at a York church to farm taxes and ticks.

Have any ideas for a wire pick for our front page? I’m thinking Pa.’s Voter ID story or the God particle.
