Somewhere in France

As I started this column on Veterans Day, I hoped to come up with an appropriate tribute or inspiring message to communicate the gratitude we all have for those who have served our country. I worried before I began that I would not be able to do justice to the many men and women in our community who have served our nation in times of war. The task frankly seemed out of reach and I contemplated changing the subject altogether.

True treasure

I read with great interest the recent article about local resident and collector Ross Beard and the personal gift to him of information belonging to the late David "Carbine" Williams.

Noted and passed

• Former President George Bush was refreshingly candid in last week's interviews with NBC and other media outlets; he was doing a series of drop-ins to promote his new book, "Decision Points." Even those who thought Bush didn't do a great job in the Oval Office will have to admit that he's exhibited good character by refusing to criticize his successor, Barack Obama. Unlike Jimmy Carter, who seems to make a habit of spouting his opinions and denigrating presidents, Bush has displayed an admirable restraint.

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
