In 1923, at a small school house near Camden known as the Cleveland School, more than 300 people gathered for a graduation night celebration and play. At 9 p.m., one of the oil lanterns fell onto the stage and within minutes the school was engulfed in flames. Seventy-seven people lost their lives that night. During the past 100 years, we have made great strides in implementing fire codes and regulations to protect our citizens; but we must remain diligent.

Risky dogs

Insurance companies in the United States are, in increasing numbers, cancelling the homeowners' policies of people who keep aggressive breeds of dogs.

Shutdown?

We have lost count now of the number of times Congress has come to the brink of shutting the government down. We now find ourselves in the same situation we have on other occasions, with dysfunctional Republicans and incompetent Democrats heaving insults back and forth at each other in Washington while American voters shake their heads in dismay.
