Carlton and Kalutz, who practice with Pediatric Associates of Camden, are well aware of the health threat posed by maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). As Carlton explained, unsanitary birthing facilities and practices, coupled with lack of tetanus immunizations in many developing countries, put millions of newborns and their mothers at risk. Proceeds from the supper, as well as other contributions being accepted by the Kiwanis Club, will be used to fund the Kiwanis International/UNICEF ...

with a big effort, the senior gave the Bulldogs just what they wanted.
I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.

You can't walk around a craft store without seeing one of those plaques, framed pictures or cross-stitched designs -- those sayings that sit on mantles, hang above fireplaces and are stuck to car bumpers:
In the opening of "Fury," the story of an American tank crew in the final days of World War II, Brad Pitt's character stabs a German soldier in the head before casually wiping his blade clean on his enemy's uniform.
The American "retreat from marriage" may portend harm for the American Dream, says National Marriage Project director W. Bradford Wilcox, who outlines policies that hamper rather than help children's future stability in a commentary for the Heritage Foundation.
You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made. But did anyone tell you being married is also awkward? And sweaty? Being married is a lot of things, some of which no one tells you about ahead of time. Here's a head's up of a few things you probably haven't heard before.

But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.

I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...
The fall television season is flush with comic book adaptations, including the premiere of the Batman prequel "Gotham" and the latest version of "The Flash," and returning favorites "Arrow" and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." I've seen them all, and they're all chock full of geeky goodness.
