JESSE MURPHY: Clicking our lives away -- I think I might be on the verge of losing my mind with technology. As everything advances in leaps and bounds, it’s hard to keep up, even for someone of the early Generation Y demographic. Maryville Daily Forum (Mo.)

DR. MURRAY FEINGOLD: Talking less insensitively to child patients -- Doctors do not want to be considered insensitive, embarrass their patients or say something that is hurtful. But, unfortunately, at times this happens. Hopefully when it does happen, it is not done intentionally. MetroWest Daily News (Mass.)

WAYNE L. WESTCOTT: Interval training provides a boost -- We experience a change in our muscle tissue as we grow older. We can’t run as fast, jump as high, throw as hard, or swing the golf club/tennis racquet as forcefully. Interval training and sprinting are perhaps the two most effective means for improving this situation.  The Patriot Ledger (Mass.)

GARDENER: Drought demands smart watering of plants -- Of all the challenges we gardeners face, drought is the one most out of our control. At sometime in your gardening life, no matter where you live, drought likely will affect you too. For many, that time is now. Joe Lamp'l/ Scripps Howard News Service

INTERIORS: A lesson in color -- A complementary color scheme uses colors that are directly across from each other on the color wheel. Red is across from green, so those are complementary. But did you know that pink, a lightened version of red, also works great with green, particularly dark green? Rosemary Sadez Friedmann/ Scripps Howard News Service

HOMEFIX: How to care for cedar siding -- Q: We are negotiating to buy a house with cedar siding. It has a fairly new paint job, but the paint is peeling badly. What's the best way to remove the peeling paint? The siding appears to be in good shape. Dwight Barnett/ Scripps Howard News Service

HARRY TRUMAN: 5 things to know about Harry Truman's education -- Harry Truman was the only U.S. president in the 20th century who didn’t earn a college degree. But that doesn’t mean Truman wasn’t well-educated or well-read. In fact, Truman even looked the part of an intellectual with his signature spectacles. Adrianne DeWeese/ The Examiner (Mo.)

AMY GEHRT: Congress has not yet earned its summer break -- Members of Congress are taking a five-week summer break, but it’s doubtful most of us will even notice. Despite the fact that the U.S. is still a nation in crisis, partisan political gridlock has prevented legislators from doing the jobs they were elected to do: make laws. Pekin Daily Times (Ill.)

KENT BUSH: America is No. 1 with a bullet -- We barely had time to bury the victims in Colorado before another mass murderer with a legally owned gun made news Sunday. Thankfully, I learned my lesson a couple of weeks ago when I wrote that I believed there might be some legislation possible that would help remedy the issue on two fronts. Augusta Gazette (Kan.)
