Rhame Arena concept

During the last Camden City Council work session, and as reported in the July 28 Chronicle-Independent, the concept of "adaptive reuse" of Rhame Arena was discussed. It was during this discussion that it was noted that the concept and sketch under discussion was developed by the daughter of Marti Wallace and Mike Jones (Elizabeth Ancrum Jones). Miss Jones developed her proposal several years ago. After a discussion of the property during a prior council meeting, her work was provided to city staff for their consideration.

I remember once I was giving a presentation about important conservation properties in the Piedmont.

Surprised by his vociferous tone, I told him I was sorry to have upset him. While not a confrontational person, I am a teacher, and I began to politely ...
