Road diet

Camden residents will have a chance to voice their opinions soon on two major transportation projects slated for the town -- a proposed "road diet" for Camden's Broad Street and an official truck route around the city. Both of them could have a major impact on the city for years to come, so we hope citizens who have a particular point of view will voice their feelings July 10 at Camden High School.

Latino voters

Recent polls show, unsurprisingly, that President Obama holds an overwhelming lead among Latino voters, outdistancing Republican Mitt Romney by almost a three-to-one margin. Part of this is because of Obama's political posturing towards Hispanics, but part is also due to the GOP's failure to offer programs that appeal to the country's fastest-growing group. It follows the same trend that holds with African-American voters, who favor Obama -- or any other Democrat, for that matter -- by almost 90 percent.
