Column: Community newspapers not enemies of the state

Let's make one thing crystal clear…the press is not the enemy of the American people.

Column: Deconstructed word salad

Much is made of "privilege" these days. In many cases, the word "privilege" is being used as a pejorative.

Column: Trump meets his match in the media

SAN DIEGO -- Let me tell you something you already know: At the moment, the media is a mess.

Column: A cheap jug of poison

A deck open to sunlight and the weather surely will lose its pizzazz. That's when a good pressure washing works miracles. Prep it with some bleach and it'll look even better. Bleach is cheap. I heard people say they apply it at 100 percent strength. "Works better that way," they say. I'd see what they meant.

Column: CPD continues to excel

Last month, I addressed some of our 2016 concerns -- concerns in that election year. This month I'd like to share additional details concerning community safety and law enforcement community relations. You brought this topic forward, and your city council listened, your Camden Police Department (CPD) listened, and Camden communities listened. In the past two years the CPD has stepped up the game.

Column: Free press, free people

Donald J. Trump is a bully and a thug. I could tell you he is a liar, but you and everyone else in America -- even his Republican minions in Congress, know that already.

Column: The clothes line

When Hurricane Irma unleashed her callousness on the Rondarosa, it was hard to see the trees, decades old, fall.

Column: Just the facts

Ronald Reagan created the mantra, "Let's Make America Great Again" for his 1980 presidential campaign, a point of view we are now repeating -- and repeating. The fact is, this country and this world have never been greater, unquestionably for women, children, minorities, and in no particular order, science and the arts, invention, technology, general health and life expectancy -- time to smell the roses. And the data.

Trump and Putin’s do-si-do

WASHINGTON -- It's a given that political candidates will target each other with as much oppositional propaganda as they can get away with. But with the Kremlin now playing a third-party shadow role in U.S. elections, the usual game seems to be shifting from blood sport to cold war.

Lay-by?

One often finds references to the term "lay-by" in historical works, in literary writings, in songs, in educational materials, etc. What is its origin and what does it mean? Does it have present day meaning and significance?

They never had their marbles

I can stand on the brick patio Dad laid down in the 1980s and show you right where we boys shot marbles. There in the 1950s, long before the bricks came along, we'd scratch a circle into the ground, fill it with marbles, and shoot 'em out. We didn't complicate things with fancy words. We just threw our marbles into the ring and took turns shooting. If a buddy knocked your marble out, it was his. We played for keeps.

Column: Under the roadbed

About 15 years ago, former Camden City Councilman Nick Lampshire asked me to meet him in the KFC parking lot on East DeKalb Street. It was a little of an unusual request -- he usually dropped into our offices on the other side of downtown when he wanted to talk about something.

Column: Spirit invades body, wreaks havoc

The channelization business, where the spirit of somebody who has been dead for thousands of years moves into your body and starts talking out of your mouth, may be new and exciting to people like Shirley MacLaine, but not to me.

Column: The pulse, the beat

I would have to say I believe the most precious assets in our lives are living in ways and by actions that fill us with love, happiness and good health. We don't all use the same formula responsible for securing these valuable commodities, but I imagine we rank them extremely important. Regardless of what we accomplish and accumulate over the course of our time on earth, we are unable to take it with us. We all know this. Is it not our relationships with others, our human connectedness that strongly contribute to this wealth? Our personal bonds bring profound ...
