Editorial: Crape scolding

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.

Letter: Reader says KCSD referenda not chamber issue

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.

The aviator's helmet

Bob Clithero displays a vintage leather pilot's helmet of a type that would have been used by aviators in the early 20th century. Clithero spoke about Winston Groom's book, "The Aviators," during a recent meeting of the Golden K Club. The book is about three giants of aviation -- Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and Eddie Rickenbacker -- and their enormous influence and contribution to aviation and to the world. All three, Clithero said, were raised in relative poverty and estranged from their fathers, but had strong relationships with their mothers. All three were innovators and mechanical geniuses. All three survived ...
