Thanksgiving generally marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, though commerce in this country is a continually changing animal. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when many stores have kicked off big sales and deep discounts, appears to be lessening in importance. Retail experts say there's more of a trend now in discounting that starts before Black Friday and extends well beyond it. Shoppers have become so accustomed to discounting among retailers that many are determined from the outset not to pay full price for anything.

Well, folks, after more than three months of speculation, of debates, of arguing, bickering and online name calling, a grand jury in St. Louis County, Mo., finally came to a conclusion earlier this week. The 12-person panel was presented with and studied all the evidence in the case of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August and concluded there were no indications that Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson committed any crime when he shot and killed Brown.

Yes, I know it's only just Thanksgiving but, admit it, many of you will be getting out the holiday lights and wreaths from the attic this weekend or going to buy your Christmas tree! Here at the city, we've had to start early as it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Our street and electric department crews have been diligently working to decorate for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, we'll have embellished light poles throughout the city and a lot of lit trees, too.

These con games know no season, but Camden Police Department (CPD) Chief Joe Floyd said criminals increase their efforts around the holidays. Using the old adage, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is," Floyd said everyone should be aware of possible scams and gave advice on what to do if they are contacted by anyone they don't know asking for money.
