The Fourth of July is just around the corner. If you haven't made your plans for Independence Day yet, don't worry. We've got you covered. Here is your guide for events that will be happening in the area.

Fans welcome Robinson as their newest King

SACRAMENTO, CA - Thomas Robinson was given his first taste of what it's like to be a member of the Kings in Sacramento.

Hundreds of Kings fans gave Robinson a hero's welcome at Arden Fair Mall on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier in the day during his welcoming press conference, Robinson compared Kings fans to the passionate Jayhawks fans at Kansas where he played for three seasons.

Known as a ferocious rebounder at Kansas, Robinson believes he will be the perfect on-court compliment to Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

The 21-year-old power forward's journey to Sacramento took a lot longer than expected. His flight was delayed leaving from New York on Friday morning, before ending up in Long Beach. After a drive to Santa Ana, Robinson caught a flight and landed in the capital city just before 11:00 p.m. on Friday night.

Kings pick Thomas Robinson from Kansas as No. 5 pick

NEWARK, NJ - The Sacramento Kings selected Thomas Robinson from Kansas, a 6-foot 9-inch, 244-pound power forward with the No. 5 pick in the NBA Draft Thursday afternoon.

Robinson was considered perhaps the most NBA-ready player in the draft and the Kings need plenty of immediate help after missing the playoffs for a sixth straight season.

Robinson left Kansas after leading the Jayhawks to the national title game his junior season. He was the first unanimous AP All-American since 2009 and won the Big 12 player of the year award as well.

Robinson averaged 17.7 points and was second in the nation with 11.9 rebounds per game and is a strong defensive presence at power forward.

With the Kings only other pick, the 36th overall, they selected Orlando Johnson, but he was then shipped to the Indiana Pacers for cash considerations. Johnson is a guard from U.C. Santa Barbara.

Justices set to decide constitutionality of healthcare reform

SACRAMENTO - Supreme Court Justices set to make a major decision that could impact healthcare for millions of Americans.

U.S. Supreme Court is set to rule as early as Monday on the 2010 health care reform bill.

The nine Justices could make a number of decisions. They could repeal part of  President Obama's healthcare plan. They could also repeal the entire healthcare reform bill. Whatever  their decision, the impact is huge. It affects  millions of Americans.
