Coping with a new normal when the kids leave the nest

The rite of passage that is moving away from home and going to college or out into the world is like the start to a new, exciting, much anticipated journey. Most young adults are seething with excitement and chomping at the bit to embark on this new adventure that is life. However, for the parents, this can be a time of dread, sadness and grief. It is not uncommon to experience a mixed bag of emotions that include pride and love but also feelings of deep loss and sadness.

Spoiler alert!

I was only 11 years old when I first saw "The Empire Strikes Back," and I had no idea what to expect. So when Darth Vader told Luke Skywalker about his paternity -- (SPOILER ALERT: Darth Vader is Luke's father) -- I was floored. I didn't believe it. That revelation packed a punch that hit me squarely between the eyes. 
 Such a thing had never happened before. And today, the Internet has made sure that it will never happen again.

Rhame Arena

The feeling of excitement at last week's Camden City Council meeting was palpable when architectural and engineering firms revealed their sketches for the renovation of Rhame Arena in the south end of town. The drawings were indeed startling -- perhaps because the aging structure has been deteriorating and decaying for decades now, and there has been doubt among some that a rehabilitation of the crumbling building was even possible.

Reader: we can’t afford ‘us vs. versus them’

Most folks running for political office claim their previous political "experience" is just the thing that proves they deserve your vote this November. Sometimes that is absolutely true. Sometimes, however, as in the current city council race, that previous experience is the very thing that voters should remember as creating one of the most contentious, unpleasant four years in Camden's recent memory.
