Partin's letter insightful

Kudos to Councilman Pat Partin for his very thorough and well-written letter in this newspaper. He gave excellent accounting and insight into the reasoning of City Council regarding the proposed construction(s) to take Camden to a new level. The only thing about his letter that I do not understand is why he waited so long to present it. It would have been an even greater help to our understanding had he provided it several months ago. Alas, better late than never.

Time to compromise

The Y or no Y debate has become combative. The City has stood fast, probably believing it has public support. The opponents, including me, are just as steadfastly convinced we will win either in a referendum or a lawsuit, or both.

Debt and voting: we should all vote

You have heard every American citizen shares in our national debt. Today -- each of us, newborns, included! Approximately $48,000!

However, we do not feel it is a good investment to put "lipstick on the pig" if you are lacking the space or layout required to actually qualify for a master suite.
