07.06.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! I caught my first Capitol Concert, quite an awesome experience. In DC, expect much of the “education air” to be sucked up by the No Child Left Behind debate. In news we can all agree with – what a fantastic outcome of the Women’s World Cup with Team USA defeating Japan in a spectacular final match.
Have a great start to your week!
