Parker: A time to grieve

WASHINGTON -- Unspeakable, unimaginable, incomprehensible and unthinkable are the words we've heard and used to describe the horrific murders of nine African-Americans as they prayed in a Charleston, South Carolina, church, shot by a hate-filled racist on a genocidal purge.

Cahn: ‘Nawlins’ a worthwhile trip

My father and I managed to arrive before sundown, the downtown New Orleans skyline spread before us on I-10 as it jogged through the city before heading further west. Our actual destination: a small home in Metarie, La., just outside the Crescent City, where we would stay for the next four nights on my first-ever visit to the Big Easy, a belated 50th birthday present from my Dad.

Richardson: Preserving Camden’s heritage in the era of the modern age

"Why is Camden unique?" This is the first note on a faded yellow legal pad sheet found in a folder of papers from 1971 through 1973 found in the collection of the Camden Archives and Museum. These notes from the "Camden Committee" reveal the concerns of a group of Camden citizens in the early 1970s as Camden hurtled forward in the "modern age." We'll revisit this group's efforts in a bit. My advice, in hindsight, would be that they should have talked to Reid Buckley, who at the same time was writing a manuscript about his feelings about ...

Tatum: Governing the passions...

The next time I am within earshot of an individual who uses the phrase "I have a passion for…" to describe anything other than the first moment he or she met their significant other, I'm very likely to passionately beat them senseless with a five pound bag of oranges.

Rich: When a man finds his destiny

Sometimes a man, despite his best efforts, doesn't find his destiny. Try as he might, down through the earnest years of his life, he chases it and can even believe he has it, only to awaken one morning and discover he doesn't. That what he has is an illusion, a mirage he tried to turn into reality.

Morgan: A year of great accomplishments

It's hard to believe that the 2014-15 school year is over. The longer I work in this profession, the faster the school years seem to go. June is a month that I try to both reflect on the past year and set my sights on everything that needs to be done during the coming school year. In looking back at the past school year, I can say without any hesitation whatsoever that 2014-15 has been a year of great accomplishments. Here are some of our highlights:

Cahn: More to fix when it comes to agendas

Parker: Pool party mayhem

WASHINGTON -- Video imagery doesn't get much worse than a white police officer throwing an African-American girl in a bikini to the ground, kneeling on her back as she cries, and drawing his gun on other teens.

Phillips: What now?

Parker: Caitlyn Jenner’s politics

WASHINGTON -- Barring a terror strike or an Ebola outbreak to distract us, the 2016 presidential election seems headed for a gender identity showdown.
