It seems that the City of Camden wants to have a "Y" or a sports complex that is against the will of a good many voters. Not only does the City Council want to disregard the petition of these voters after all criteria was met and the proper fashion of following the request of the council, these petitioners are being ignored as if there was never a mention for scrapping it by anyone having a disagreement.

Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."

My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week.
