Coming home to Camden

In recent days, Hezbollah, the Shi'a Islamic militant group and political party, reportedly moved missiles from storage bases in Syria to Lebanon. The missiles include Scud Ds that could target Israel. The news echoes fears Israel faced in December 1998 after the United States and United Kingdom conducted Operation Desert Fox, a bombing campaign on Iraqi targets. After the four-day operation, Israel and its American and U.K. partners worried that Iraq might fire Scud missiles against Israel -- something Iraq had done during the first Gulf War almost eight years earlier in January 1991.

Healthcare industry blues for 2014?

As I spelled out near the end of last month, the biggest local story of 2013 was KershawHealth. As faithful readers know, as the healthcare organization celebrated its centennial, it became further bogged down by losses caused primarily by external factors.

A light look back and forward

Isn't that a great cartoon by Ariail up there? I love how Baby New Year's coming in on a drone, taking a selfie as Old Man 2013 looks on incredulously. It's inspiring, even ... at least to someone who needs to write an end-of-the-year column.

At the end of past years, I've picked out a person or group of the year, sometimes both. This year, I'm not so much highlighting a group as I am an organization. Really, what I'm doing is recognizing the year's biggest story.
