Public unions

Tuesday's recall election in Wisconsin, where backers of public unions failed to unseat Gov. Scott Walker after he cut collective bargaining rights, commanded much of the spotlight, but voters in San Jose and San Diego, Cal. also dealt major blows to public unions by voting to cut the pension benefits of public workers in those two cities. Many labor experts see a rising tide of such moves as cities and states are now facing the harsh economic realities of the rich deals they bestowed upon unions for so many years.

Parents’ silence not golden

Dear Annie: I am an 18-year-old guy, and my parents are splitting up. I don't know the full story, but things are getting somewhat awkward around the house. We try to live normally, but the silence hurts. I'm trying to deal with it and put up a good front until graduation, but it's hard.

Absentee father

I never knew my father; he died when I was five months old, leaving my mother with me and my 3-year-old brother. We were not his first family. He had nine children by his first wife, eight girls and one boy -- five little graves attested to the mortality rate in earlier times. Many first wives died before their husbands, not surprising since childbirth was so dangerous and the mortality rate so high. I cannot imagine having more children -- especially since my father was 63 when I was born and my mother was 40. Back then, people just had the number ...

Haley not as 'hard-nosed' as Knotts

Mr. Ulmer, I take you to be an intelligent man, otherwise the Camden Independent would not employ you as a staff reporter. Having said that, I compliment you on a well-expressed article in the May 30th issues. But while I think it well expressed, I wish to comment on some of your conclusions.

Spotting Venus

Venus appears as a black dot transiting the Sun in this photograph taken Tuesday by Ed Roberts of Dalzell. Roberts -- who plays tuba with the Camden Community Concert Band -- took the photo through welder's glass using a Kodak Easyshare camera with a 21x wide-angle lens. In most pictures published around the globe, Venus appears at the "bottom" of the Sun. Roberts said that is because those pictures were taken through telescopes which flip the photograph. Since Roberts took the picture with a regular camera, Venus is seen traveling across the "top" of the Sun, what someone would see with ...

Four reasons why adoption is a great option

If you are a childless couple yearning to be parents, adoption may be the perfect plan "B" for you. My husband and I were such a couple. From the beginning, our plan "A" included bringing children into the world. We were each raised in families that provided us with siblings, so we not only wanted a child, we wanted siblings for our children. As children, we loved our brothers and sisters. As adults, we love them even more.

How to choose a good family doctor

Finding a doctor can be hard work when there are hundreds to choose from. A good family doctor, one you will see more than any other, is especially hard to find. He will see you for flu shots, yearly check-ups and all things in-between that arise. He is the one who will refer you to specialists and advise you on your overall health. Finding just the right doctor to fit your family's needs is extremely important. You need to feel comfortable with him, trust him and feel safe taking your health concerns to him. It took me a lot ...
