World Cup 2014: Watch the U.S. take on Belgium on a huge screen in downtown Elkhart.

See the United States face off against Belgium from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, at a World Cup Watch Party in Elkhart Civic Plaza and Central Park, located behind the plaza.

In case you’re not excited enough about Tuesday’s game, this USMNT hype video will do the trick. (Disclaimer: A dirty word is said in the video.)

Speaking of patriotism, here’s where you can catch Fourth of July parades and firework shows:

No matter where you live, there are plenty of fireworks shows, parades and other events nearby where you can celebrate the Fourth of July. Here’s a list of upcoming Independence Day events in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan.

Want to set off your own? Different law enforcement jurisdictions have different rules for the days and times residents are allowed to set off fireworks, and violations can carry hefty fines. Make sure you know your local ordinances.

Want to photograph fireworks and fireflies without the fancy equipment?

Elkhart Truth photographer Sarah Welliver offers six tips on how to capture fireworks and lightning bugs at night using a smartphone.

Indiana same-sex marriage questions may go unanswered until the fall.

Same-sex marriage ceremonies are off the table in Indiana for the foreseeable future. The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago will hold briefings Aug. 6, Sept. 9 and Sept. 15. A decision on Indiana’s recent striking down of the same-sex marriage ban isn’t likely before then.

Driving around Elkhart County will soon be a little less bumpy – in some areas, at least. 

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners on Monday, June 30, accepted bids from four contractors for the Elkhart County Highway Department’s summer paving program.

Paving is set to begin around July 7 and wrap up by Oct. 31, according to bidding documents. The bids were separated into four groups of roads.
