Question 97 Running Hot

Let me start by saying I live in Phoenix and its "HOT".
I have a 97 that runs warm (around 1/2). When I'm sitting at a light it starts to creep towards H. It hasn't got there yet. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on getting it to run cooler. Does engine ice coolent work as well as advertised?

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to flush the radiator and put in some engine ice coolent. The radiator might need a good washing to.
