City's leadership failing its citizens

As a public citizen, I take offense at the manner in which the business of Camden is being conducted. Suggesting (in public) that "council members have been giving out false information" shows, in my opinion, a lack of leadership abilities. If the Mayor has a problem with Council members or members of the public, he should deal with that problem as any good businessman does -- in private. As a public citizen, my statements (a year or so ago) were also called into question by the Mayor (in the press) regarding a meeting about the railroad depot -- there could be others ...

Noted and passed

• Spin is a way of life in Washington, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi carried it to new heights last week. When George Bush was president and Democrats controlled the House, she blamed everything in the world, maybe even including bad weather, on Bush. Now that Barack Obama is president and the economy is still struggling, she blames all the world's woes on Republicans, who have a majority in the house. "They hold the power," Pelosi says. Right.

Put these FTAs to work

Some Americans act as if Congress and the president have a jobs-making switch somewhere they can flip to help the economy. If only. No modern economy is that simple. And the factors that affect employment can be complex.

It doesn't slow down...

I stopped by the Farmer's Market on Memorial Day weekend, and I ran into a neighbor who said something to me about how it must be nice in the summer when things slow down. Admittedly, summer does provide the opportunity for some rest and recharging. But in reality, our school district remains unbelievably busy over the summer. Getting ready for a new school year is a monumental and complex task.

Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

Rock of Ages

I remember once I was giving a presentation about important conservation properties in the Piedmont. I showed photos of the incredible rock formations on a particular property and happened to mention their age in an effort to describe their grandeur. Afterwards, I was confronted by an indignant man who told me that the age of rocks cannot be known. He accused me of making those figures up out of thin air. Surprised by his vociferous tone, I told him I was sorry to have upset him. While not a confrontational person, I am a teacher, and I began to politely ...
