Breitbart’s culture war ends

Speak no ill of the dead. So goes a saying from ancient Greece. I must beg for an exception in the case of the late Andrew Breitbart. Like Donald Trump, Breitbart had his sweet and gentle side, but that's not what made him interesting.

Localism is trending today in the realms of food and finance. The institution of the local community newspaper is also popular, but it wasn't blogged into being - it was born long before videos started going viral. Major-metropolitan newspapers may be a slowly dying breed, but community newspapers prove that American journalism is alive, well and living in the rural areas, small towns and suburbs of our land.

Correction/clarification

In the March 2 edition of the Chronicle-Independent, Harold V. Pickrel III was identified as the developer of Bridlewood Farms on Springdale Drive. It should be clarified that Pickrel is the managing partner of BWF LLC, which is developing the property. It should further be clarified that a figure of "$1 million each" for the original number of 16 lots was based on 2008 information where the lots would sell for between $200,000 to $300,000 and the end value of each property, including homes, could come to $1 million.

Race not a factor in sports facility debate

I have been neutral in the YMCA debate and I'm trying to stay that way. There are merits on both sides (we think), but when a member of Camden City Council pulls the race card, I will not be quiet. This planned or unplanned sports complex has nothing to do with race. It is insulting that a member of city council could even bring race into the debate.
