They tuned in to one of three network television stations that would deliver clear reception if the antenna was pointed in the right direction and the weather was clear.

Recalling all mavericks

WASHINGTON -- As congressional leaders depart the nation's capital for a much-deserved five-week break, it is with a sense of relief and pride in accomplishment: a grand bargain budget that ends sequestration and makes rational spending cuts, a sane immigration reform package, and progress on a cost-cutting health care plan.

A special visit

Dr. Paul Joseph (center, holding his granddaughter, Nahra Joseph) had a special visitor in July. His cousin, Helen Tobia Bukaram (right), left her home country of Lebanon and visited Camden for three weeks.
