Localism is trending today in the realms of food and finance. The institution of the local community newspaper is also popular, but it wasn't blogged into being - it was born long before videos started going viral.

In the March 2 edition of the Chronicle-Independent, Harold V. Pickrel III was identified as the developer of Bridlewood Farms on Springdale Drive. It should be clarified that Pickrel is the managing partner of BWF LLC, which is developing the property.

I have been neutral in the YMCA debate and I'm trying to stay that way. There are merits on both sides (we think), but when a member of Camden City Council pulls the race card, I will not be quiet. This planned or unplanned sports complex has nothing to do with race. It is insulting that a member of city council could even bring race into the debate.
