An early spring?

No matter how you feel about climate change -- whether you think global warming is caused by humans and is driving the planet towards ruin, or whether recent warmer temperatures are just a part of natural weather cycles -- it's hard to deny the enjoyment of a winter spell in which temperatures rise far above normal. That's what is forecast for the next few days in Camden, with highs in the mid-70s, which is more like late spring than the height of winter.

Smoldering light

Camden firefighters check out the remains of an external light fixture at the entrance to the Camden Archives and Museum around mid-morning Wednesday. Archives Director Katherine Richardson said the fixture -- likely a 1915 original that hadn't been turned on in years -- was likely turned on by an electrician who had been changing light bulbs the day before. "There's been a bird's nest made of pine straw in it and we think it smoldered all night until it caught the wooden panel above the door," Richardson said.
