300 more homes in Camden by 2018?

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.

Luckily, the rain held off long enough for honorees and their families to have their pictures taken at each respective bench outside.

‘Soapy’ death freed Skagway, Alaska

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. Alaksa was the last of his novels I ever read and vowed never to go back because -- as the Library Journal reviewed in 1988 -- the "final sections are trite, uneven and overloaded with stereotypes."

‘Man of Steel’ the Superman we need

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.
