I-5 bridge collapse a warning for S.C.

I didn't get a lot of sleep Thursday night and not because I wasn't feeling well or had a lot of noise to keep me awake. In fact, I actually fell asleep in an office-type chair in front of my computer trying to watch online, live video from a Seattle, Wash., TV station covering the partial collapse of an I-5 bridge over the Skagit River.

Visitors won't be able to help but stop and stare at the giant rifle at the Camden Archives and Museum. At 6 feet long and 90 pounds heavy, the training rifle features an 8-inch bolt for .50 caliber armor piercing rounds. Fashioned at Pearl Harbor, the rifle's barrel is actually from the USS Arizona sunk during the Japanese attack of Dec. 7, 1941, that catapulted the United States into World War II.

When DOJ targets press, we all lose

To say I was stunned was putting it mildly. I was shocked to learn about the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) decision to seize phone records belonging to the Associated Press (AP). The C-I does not belong to the AP; I have never written for the service. That doesn't negate my outrage at DOJ's actions.
