What should have been a celebration of a sturdy football win by Camden High School (CHS) turned into an ugly incident Friday night at Zemp Stadium when a brawl occurred as players went through the handshake line following the game. The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.

Women form more than half of the U.S. voting population and hold up half the sky. We should consider carefully issues that profoundly affect not only the economic security, health and well-being of our sex, but of the country itself. Many aware, thinking, and caring men join us -- recognizing it is for their benefit, also, to promote policies that help American families. Working families are struggling. Women are the sole or primary breadwinners in four out of 10 American families.

I want to go on record as endorsing Bob Williams for Camden City Council. Bob is a Camden native who I have personally known for more than 50 years and he brings excellent credentials to this position.

His intense sense of community in today's world is an amazing attribute for anyone seeking a leadership position.

This year was one of the best for my honeybees. At the beginning of spring, I never would have predicted such productivity. We had several surprises, but I'll discuss one in particular. Each spring, a beehive tends to "swarm." Most of us have heard of a bee swarm, but you may be amazed by the biology behind this bewildering bee business.
