The civil right of marriage equality

Growing up the way I did, I couldn't help but to learn the fundamental truth that we are all human beings with the fundamental rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I've lived in too many places, and been counted as a minority enough times, not to realize that it's always wrong -- always -- to believe that anyone's claims to those fundamental rights are inferior to anyone else's.

Camden budget leaves out tech village

You can't always have what you want, at least not when it comes to budgeting. Whether a personal, business or government budget, there are some things you just have to leave out. That was the case during a March 20 Camden City Council budget work session.

Council debates Historic Camden, CBA requests

The city of Camden expects to receive $702,000 in local source revenue during its next fiscal year, which starts July 1. The majority of those funds -- an estimated $620,000 -- will come from the city's 2 percent hospitality tax (HTAX). How to use those funds was the subject of some debate during a special afternoon-long Camden City Council budget work session Wednesday.

City may purchase old Maxway building

(The online version of this story has been updated to correctly show that asbestos mitigation and demolition of the Maxway building would be paid for out of a fund created by the 2000 sale of city watershed property, as will the purchase of the building. Hospitality taxes would only be used to transform the property into the proposed "pocket park.")

‘Reconciliation’: Doby, Baruch statues to be unveiled March 29

John Rainey wants to make sure of one thing: what happens in Camden on March 29 will not be about him. Rainey said the unveiling of "Reconciliation," a piece of art featuring life-size statuary of two of Camden's native sons, will happen because of a unique collaboration. Yes, it will be his vision, but as the combined work of others to see that vision come to life. That, Rainey said during a recent interview, will make the day unique.

Thirty years of personal computing

Technically speaking, the personal computer -- usually referred to as a desktop computer -- was born as a programmable calculator in 1965, the year of my birth. During the 1970s, Hewlett Packard introduced a BASIC computer that could fit on a desk. It included a keyboard, small one-line display and a printer. The Xerox Alto, that (according to Wikipedia) inspired the Apple Macintosh, came along in 1973. IBM had a small CRT display computer two years later.
