• Just last week we were patting Sen. Lindsey Graham on the back for his efforts to forge compromise in Washington, but his idea to boycott the winter Olympics in Russia if that country grants asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is unwise.

Graham's idea is a lousy one, which was noted by House Speaker John Boehner.

Please accept my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all parties responsible for the placement of the Leaders Legacy bench in honor of my late father, Mr. James L. Anderson Sr. I was not able to be there due to an illness of long standing and an inability to travel. I have missed Camden and family members terribly and, again, state that I would have been with you as you honored my Dad.
