Postal service

The U.S. Postal Service is losing nearly $16 billion a year, and the attrition of traditional mail continues as people communicate, pay bills and make reservations on the Internet, along with a host of other tasks that used to involve mail. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe announced recently that Saturday mail delivery would be eliminated; this, of course, isn't everybody's first preference, but it's necessary to try to help stem the flow of red ink.

Asthma, allergies and tree sex: what’s the link?

Welcome to spring! For many people this is their favorite time of year, for many others it is a miserable time of year. According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 27 million Americans, both adults (18.9 million) and children (7.1 million), have been diagnosed with asthma. Of those, more than half also suffer from allergies. Asthma and allergies are triggered by many factors such as cigarette and wood smoke, dust mites, pets, molds, certain foods, strong odors and of course plant pollen.

CPD shows real class

After the recent passing of our Dad, we were escorted by the Camden Police Department from the city limits to Malvern Hill Baptist Church. Many in the procession following the '73 Ford Pick-up which carried our Dad's casket were moved by the real class displayed by each officer along the route. I hope those involved will accept our sincere thanks for our safe passage and their respect. We hope the county will go back to providing the same honor for safe passage at this difficult time for a family.
