That is still more than the 717 required to meet a 15 percent standard of city of Camden registered voters who voted in the last election. Little said the commission certified the petition at its April 13 meeting.

Zimmerman’s arrest the right thing

The fallout from 17-year-old Martin's death at the hands of George Zimmerman has been fraught with charges of police corruption; hand-wringing over Florida's self-defense law; and, of course, racial overtones.
