The sirens of the Pentagon

WASHINGTON -- It must be true what they say about women -- that they are smarter, stronger, wiser and wilier than your average Joe.

No patsy now

WASHINGTON -- My inner Pollyanna was basking in blissfulness, rolling in the hay of righteous rhetoric, backstroking through the sunny sibilance of aspiration.

The Wheel of Time never really ends

Since last October, I've spent part of my time in another world. For about three months, I reread the massive fantasy series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. The final book, A Memory of Light, came out Jan. 8 and I was smart -- and loyal -- enough to pre-order it from our local bookstore in order to take advantage of a pretty great sale price.

Tree Pruning 101 -- Part 1

Nothing irks me more than to see a tree improperly pruned. Well, improper planting and no watering of new trees irks me too, but I'll save that for another time. Today I'd like to focus on the basics of tree pruning and next month I'll talk about utility line pruning.

There's just so much to explain about the subject that there are text books and day-long seminars specifically dedicated to tree pruning so bear with me.

Why I voted against the fiscal cliff ‘deal’

Recently, the Congress approved the so-called "fiscal cliff" agreement. I voted against the final version of deal. The reason is pretty simple: the agreement raised spending. Again. Indeed, its passage seems to reaffirm a disturbing truth about today's Washington: compromises always lead to more spending, more debt, and too often, more taxes.

A lot of Camden residents and others who pass through Camden had a rough time of it last week when CSX Railroad closed not one, but two crossings in Dusty Bend to replace a 2,000-foot section of track.
