Noted and passed - March 19, 2012

• One more sign of a changing digital world is the demise of the print edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica, which will no longer publish a paper-and-ink version after 224 years. The World Wide Web, including online encyclopedia Wikipedia, made the Brittanica obsolete. It was considered the granddaddy of all American reference volumes, though its livelier cousin World Book, outsold it. Time waits for no man, and certainly not for Brittanica.

Way better than the sum of our parts

I was attending a coaching clinic in the mid 1970s, and I got to talk with a very well-respected and successful football coach who had won a number of championships during a long and storied career. I asked him about his favorite team, expecting him to tell me about one of the numerous state championship teams he had coached. I was surprised, however, when he told me about a team he had coached that had not even gone very far into the playoffs. The coach told me he loved and valued this particular team since it had achieved well beyond ...

Rhame Arena

The feeling of excitement at last week's Camden City Council meeting was palpable when architectural and engineering firms revealed their sketches for the renovation of Rhame Arena in the south end of town. The drawings were indeed startling -- perhaps because the aging structure has been deteriorating and decaying for decades now, and there has been doubt among some that a rehabilitation of the crumbling building was even possible. But possible it is, and not just to produce a humdrum building, but one that is attractive and will be a beckoning welcome to visitors driving into town from I-20 and ...

Reader: we can’t afford ‘us vs. versus them’

Most folks running for political office claim their previous political "experience" is just the thing that proves they deserve your vote this November. Sometimes that is absolutely true. Sometimes, however, as in the current city council race, that previous experience is the very thing that voters should remember as creating one of the most contentious, unpleasant four years in Camden's recent memory.

Reader supports Williams for city council

On Nov. 4th, we will fill two seats on Camden City Council. We have an outstanding candidate in Bob Williams. He is dedicated to helping Camden grow and move forward in a positive way. Bob was born and raised in Camden, and attended and graduated from our public schools. He owns and operates a local business and understands the needs of the small business and property owners. He would never exploit the office for personal gain.
