Forestry Commission. The wind was a major factor that day in trying to contain the fire and keep it from spreading.

Enough is enough

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18-year-olds) took only three months and eight days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 … before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Noted and passed

• It's difficult not to like the candor of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, the plain-spoken chief executive who's grappling with the Garden State's problems in a way that residents of that state have seldom seen. Christie lets the criticism of the media and special-interest groups roll off his back while he pile drives into the massive issues facing his state.

While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.
