During the Christmas season over the past three decades, presidents of the United States have shown admirable fiscal restraint as well as concern for their staffs when they've chosen their holiday schedules. Most have spent their Christmases either at the White House or nearby Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains just outside the District of Columbia. That has avoided expensive travel to faraway places and has allowed countless government staffers to spend time with their families rather than having to be on the road. Then along came President Obama, who has chosen to pack up -- at ...

I teach scrapbooking and sell acid-free albums and supplies. Therefore, I was surprised to see the article "Easy ways to reuse and recycle holiday gift wrap" in the Friday, Dec. 30, C-I. One of the uses listed for discarded wrapping paper was to "Use in scrapbooking or as an inexpensive matting for photos." Gift wrap is not acid-free and will cause photos and other paper keepsakes to turn brown and/or deteriorate. The other uses listed sound like really good ideas.

Nothing instills fear in the heart and soul of humans as does a snake. Since the beginning of recorded history, snakes have been a symbol of evil, treachery, poison, etc., and because of this perception, misinformation and folklore, most people hate snakes.

I attended the (Camden) Planning (Commission) meeting regarding the Beechwood Plantation development, and left with more questions to be asked than questions answered. For those of you who don't know what is proposed, the developers are talking of 254 residences, rentals and condos; a 24-7 assisted living facility; and more. We have had two patio homes built in Kirkover Hills during the last couple of years; these two did not sell, they are rentals, with four cars parked in the front yard. I don't believe there is a need for this large scale development.
