April is Fair Housing Month

Every year the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proclaims April as Fair Housing Month. The purpose of this designation is to celebrate the passage of the Fair Housing Act in 1968. During this month HUD reaches out to the public with the message that "every person has the right to equal choices in housing." In the same way, the city of Camden wants the public to be knowledgeable about fair housing and related practices by defining fair housing, stating what it protects and describing why it's important.

And whether it was carried out by a lone, deranged person or by a group trying to make a misguided point, it reminds us that in the 21st century, we are never safe from madmen.

Teen warns of dangers from tobacco use

Dear Annie: We are the future. It may sound cheesy, but that's the motto I live by, and it's one of the reasons I believe so strongly in the need to prevent and reduce tobacco use among teens and kids. My passion for tobacco-use prevention started when I saw the harm that tobacco use caused my older sister. She started smoking at age 13 and ended up with an addiction that spiraled out of control, in many ways taking her childhood with it.
