Lindsay Bierman writes, "Thou Shalt Support Local Businesses: When I built my lake house, I could have ordered fixtures, cabinets, and hardware online, but I went to brick-and-mortar shops for some face-to-face help with details and logistics. It may cost more, but it's worth it when every purchase has the power to support -- or drain -- your local economy."

They tuned in to one of three network television stations that would deliver clear reception if the antenna was pointed in the right direction and the weather was clear.

Recalling all mavericks

WASHINGTON -- As congressional leaders depart the nation's capital for a much-deserved five-week break, it is with a sense of relief and pride in accomplishment: a grand bargain budget that ends sequestration and makes rational spending cuts, a sane immigration reform package, and progress on a cost-cutting health care plan.

A special visit

Dr. Paul Joseph (center, holding his granddaughter, Nahra Joseph) had a special visitor in July. His cousin, Helen Tobia Bukaram (right), left her home country of Lebanon and visited Camden for three weeks. Bukaram speaks three languages and owns a Mercedes parts business -- much needed, Joseph said, as Mercedes is the most popular car manufacturer in Lebanon. Bukaram has also written several stories in Arabic, but the most beloved story she's written is about how her family -- the Joseph's family -- got to South Carolina. "The 100 Year Trip" chronicles the family's life from the time Bukaram's ...
