It proves once more -- how many times does this make? -- that most of the elected officials in Washington are interested not in advancing common-sense proposals but in trying to get re-elected and trying to make sure their own party dominates.

Why we need a Y

To those of you who don't know me, I am an Internal Medicine physician who has practiced at the hospital here in Camden for the past four years. I am the mother of three young children, and I live here in downtown Camden. I have followed the debate about the YMCA closely, and for many reasons, I support this project because I care about my patients, my family, and our community.

Helping kids put the thanks in Thanksgiving

It's not hard to tell when the Christmas shopping season is officially in full swing because my children's cartoons become shorter along with the days. Instead of regular programming, their 30-minute show is crammed with 20 minutes of commercials telling my kids why they absolutely can't live without and must have a stuffed animal that magically transforms into a backpack or a bed or a three-bedroom ranch with optional den.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project."

Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...
