There is a chance that there could be up to 300 new homes in Camden by 2018, just five years away, if U.S. Census and other projections hold up. The statistic -- based on a projected 8 percent increase in housing stock from 2011 to 2018 -- is part of a draft revision of Camden's Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
Friday, more than 80 people crowded into the Camden Archives and Museum to help dedicate the first five benches in the city of Camden's new Leaders Legacy recognition program.

Camden City Council granted $60,000 worth of hospitality taxes to Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site's McCaa Tavern project on a 3-2 vote Tuesday night, but not before a series of heated exchanges during that afternoon's work session.

A very long time ago, I read James A. Michener's novel, Alaska. I was in a period where I thought it was neat to follow the "history" of a place from its earliest geological birth to wherever it was Michener happened to leave off.

A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a nice outing with one of my sisters and my two sons. We went to a Columbia theater -- only to make it easier on my sister -- to see "Man of Steel," the new Superman movie starring British actor Henry Cavill in the titular role. I'm here to highly recommend it and not just because it's a superhero film, a genre everyone knows I like. I'm recommending it because it's a really great movie.
