Camden strategic planning

Since my election in 2008, I have led our Council in designing an annual strategic plan. A strategic plan is a strong management tool which helps both the Council and the City staff to focus energy toward the same goals. It is a disciplined planning process to develop an annual vision. Before we begin the multi-step process covering vision, mission, objectives, values, strategies, goals and programs, we must review our current status. This planning also provides us with benchmarks for historic reviews. This plan becomes our focus for the future.

‘...leave us to our old tried and true ways’

I am writing in response to a letter in the Chronicle-Independent dated January 11th from Andrew Pope. Surely he checked Camden and its facilities very carefully before making his move.

This has been the Camden way of life for a long time … a way that many of us truly enjoy. There is so much in Camden to be proud of -- do not try to change it. If Camden does not have what you want for ...

Deer slayer (a misnomer)

To characterize me as a deer slayer, a hunter, or an outdoorswoman would be incongruous, to say the least. I do know how to handle a gun, having had a brother who assumed I might be of interest as a playmate if I knew how to shoot. Therefore, he dared me to shoot a double barrel shotgun and blow out the pantry window. Naturally, a challenge such as this required action. I shot out the window, was kicked a summersault, and expected the deserved whipping. (No one called or thought of DSS back then.) Mother, a widow, was too thankful ...

A heritage of public facilities

The exotic snakes were released where Historic Camden now sits. The traveling carnival had gone broke and the owner of the snakes could no longer afford to feed them. so several large and non-native snakes were set free to fend for themselves in Pine Tree Creek. Jim Thornton said this incident happened during the Great Depression.

YMCA/sports complex will benefit all

For several months I watched the pro and con actions concerning the Camden Sports Complex. As the information seemed to be so different, I decided to research the topic myself. As I researched the argument against the Camden Sports Complex, it evolved from one reason to another and then another. First, it would compete with local business, then it was too large an expenditure. I've witnessed multiple petitions, speaking at public forums in city council, and public displays of booing and heckling at the speakers for the Sports Complex. I stood, listened and watched as some have falsely claimed ...
