Land purchase for new district offices 'poor decision'

Why would the local school board vote to spend $1.25 million on property for a new district office when they have the land available at both the former Pine Tree Hill School and Camden Middle School properties? How much more money will the new administrative building cost? Is there some other way this money could be spent on children rather than administrative offices?

Historic Camden takes visitors back to past during annual colonial Christmas celebration

Although it's recorded that in 1759 George Washington purchased such exotic sounding toys as "bird on Bellows, turnabout Parrot, Prussian Dragoon, and Man Smoaking," mostly the southern colonial Christmas season was a celebration for grown ups. It was a time of merriment and of thanks; a season of feasts, parties, hunts, horse races, cock fights, balls and visiting, highlighted by church services, mainly Church of England, and special customs.

Not so transparent

President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in history, has delivered perhaps the least transparent. Following the trend of other recent presidents, Obama has kept a tight lid on the press, rarely interacting with reporters in a spontaneous fashion and instead relying on the spin of his White House press directors. And it has gotten worse the longer Obama has been in office; one report last week indicated that the administration was denying access on a variety of subjects with increasing regularity. The Associated Press reported, "In category after category -- except for reducing numbers of old requests and a ...
