Put YMCA proposal to a vote

In response to all the controversy of a YMCA coming to Camden, I have read articles for and against. We are going to be spending a lot of money on committees and studies by city council and county council about the YMCA. This looks to me like we are getting the cart before the horse. With so many people opposed to or in support of the YMCA, why not – before spending all this money -- place the issue on the ballot and let the people decide. This would save a lot of money.

Scrapbook -- Aug. 3, 2011

It's funny how often a problem becomes an answer! I dropped a quarter in a kitchen drawer. It was "lost in the clutter"! I had to throw out stuff that just gets in the way. I found the quarter, and for a "bonus" I found that lost nut pick. It feels better when clutter doesn't get in the way.
