HEALTH CARE RULING: 5 questions on the health care ruling -- Seven of the votes went as expected. The more liberal justices (Kagan, Sotomayor, Breyer and Ginsburg) as predicted, voted to uphold the ACA. The three most conservative justices (Scalia, Thomas and Alito) voted against the ACA. The decision came down to Justices Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts. Andrew Nash/ The Morning Sun (Kan.)

MARKETTA GREGORY: Ripples of kindness - I guess we never know the power we have to do good until we take action. Even the tiniest of raindrops causes ripples. By Marketta Gregory, GHNS.
ROBERT MANN: Grace, holiness and the human divide - At one end of the spectrum is a belief that the law still holds sway over salvation, and that it is possible to identify those who are destined for hell. At the other end of the spectrum is an interpretation of grace as acceptance of any belief system and moral autonomy. By Robert Mann, GHNS.
FAMILY MATTERS: Accept your children for who they are - Isn’t it amazing how two children raised under the same roof, with the same parents, and the same schedule, routine and environment can have such different personalities? It’s hard not to compare, and difficult to remember that every child is an individual, and develops at his own pace, in his own time. By Diana Boggia, Canton, Ohio.
LLOYD GARVER: No place to hide from Big Brother - Did you ever call in sick and then go hang out with friends? Were you ever supposed to call on clients but decided to go to a movie instead? Did you ever "forget" to tell your boss that a business lunch has been canceled, and then go out to lunch with your spouse? If you got away with this kind of thing in the past, forget about it. Your days of tricking your boss are over. By Lloyd Garver, GHNS.
FRANK MULLIGAN: Families that Facebook together … -- A recent study conducted by a Guatemalan think tank revealed a disturbing counterintuitive byproduct of reliance on social media, such as Facebook, on the family unit. Wicked Local Wareham (Mass.)
LOOKING UP: Fond memories of the night -- What fond memories do you have of childhood? Your impressions of the night sky as a child likely filled you with wonder. What you saw looking up back then can help inspire you to keep looking heavenward, and point young people today to also enjoy the same sky. Peter Becker/ Hawley News Eagle (Pa.)
JIM HILLIBISH: Where did the Haas avocado come from? -- Rudolph Haas carried the mail in his town of La Habra, Calif., in June of 1935. But in his spare time, he cultivated avocados on a tree in his backyard. Canton (Ohio) Repository

NEW MOVIES: 'Ted,' 'Magic Mike' -- Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane joins forces with Boston favorite son Mark Wahlberg for an offbeat comedy in which a grown man (Wahlberg) is hounded by his constant companion since childhood – a magical, verbose teddy bear, voiced by MacFarlane, who also wrote the script and directs. Al Alexander/ The Patriot Ledger (Mass.)
STAY TUNED: 'Dallas' is back and still fun to watch - “Dallas” (circa 1980) was one of the first prime-time shows that left an impression on me. While I loved to watch Krystle and Alexis fight on “Dynasty,” and I swooned over a young Lorenzo Lamas on “Falcon Crest,” “Dallas” was the show that kept me glued to the TV. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.
FARR SIDE: Justin Bieber is big, but he has work to do - His music isn’t that great. His voice is annoying. He looks about 12. And yet people freak out over him like he was Michael Jackson or something. What is it about Justin Bieber? I was young once and there were singers I truly admired. But let me tell you, Justin Bieber is no Michael Jackson, nor will he ever be. By David T. Farr, Sturgis, Mich.
* Facebook idea: Ask fans to share their thoughts on Bieber – Overrated? Underappreciated?
BOOK NOTES: Summertime, and the reading is easy - When you think about it, summer beach reading doesn’t make a lot of sense. For one thing, the sun is too bright. For another, all that sunscreen makes page turning messy. Then there’s the whole matter of positioning. Beach blanket advocates who wind up reading on their stomachs go home with baked backs and wintry chests. By Rae Francoeur, Cape Ann, Mass.

Earlier this week five members of the U.S. Supreme Court agreed, for the most part, among them Chief Justice John Roberts, who is nobody's liberal. By Peoria, Ill.
