Moment of Nature - Feb. 26, 2016

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know we've had and continue to have rainy weather. Including the epic weather event last October, we've received 36.5 inches rain according to our official rain gauge here at the Public Works Department. While these past months have made for a dreary winter, I'm certainly not going to complain because it's good for the trees ... kind of.

Walker: For the love of chickens

A 16-pound chicken named Portly can make a grown woman smile, especially if the woman happens to be known as "The Dragon Lady." Earlier this month, I visited the home of Vickie (Karesh) Dawson, aka The Dragon Lady, just north of Camden in the country. I had heard lots of stories about Vickie, and quite frankly, her nickname of "The Dragon Lady" intimidated me a little. What I discovered is a lady with a vibrant passion for animals and life.

Campbell Street's early history is significant. The original town lots of Camden were laid out on a grid sometime before 1774, when the earliest known plan was drawn. On the 1774 plan, Campbell Street south of York Street was one of the original streets. During the Revolutionary War, the British built the western defenses of Camden on Campbell Street.

Rich: Orphaned later in life

No one, regardless of how old we are, likes to be an orphan. It feels oddly like a ship which has been securely moored in a harbor but then is set free to drift without anchor. There is even a point when you feel you are without rudder.
