This is the summer of Harry Potter, with "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" opening in theaters July 11, and the final book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" coming out July 20. How obsessed are you with Harry Potter? And what do you hope will happen in Book 7? We want to hear from you! NeXt readers 19 and younger are welcome to e-mail next@buffnews. Include name, age, school, grade in school and home mailing address and phone number so we can contact you for our story. Or mail NeXt, Buffalo News, P.O. Box 100, Buffalo N.Y. 14240. Deadline is June 22. Those who e-mail us will be entered into a random drawing for tickets to an advance screening of the movie. Supplies are limited!
Sure, summer is the perfect time to dust off that ol' two-wheeler of yours, pump up the tires and take it for a spin to the local theater or coffee shop. Plus, you'll save some gas and help reduce emissions, too. Besides a trusty lock and chain, what more do you need to worry about? Unpredictable summer weather, of course!
Pick up a waterproof seat cover handcrafted by Robyn Paton from www.lilybug.ca and you'll not only have a dry seat, but a cute conversation piece, too. While our cover is made of a pretty red-and-white flower pattern, others available on the Web site include a sock monkey pattern in two colors, wood grain and a girly Hawaiian floral. The covers go for $18 Canadian (or about $17 U.S.) and Robyn does ship them to the United States. These also are a great gift for recent grads, as they'll likely be biking all over their college campus in the near future.
