Book's language teaches wrong lesson

We understand that we "live in the United States of America," Mr. Crutcher. We also know we are a great nation, not just because we have freedom of speech, but the freedom to make choices. Our public schools have helped to make us a great nation because we endeavor to make our youth contributing, productive citizens of the community. This does not include promoting foul language, which is a sign of not enough vocabulary to express one's self except through expletives. You said you were quoting, for emphasis, what the students hear and say. You also said you had ...

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it.

We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
