Our Public Works Department's street and electric crews have been diligently working to decorate the city for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, you will see some new and different additions to downtown. Earlier in the year, an ad-hoc committee was formed to assist in enhancing the holiday décor along DeKalb and Broad streets. The committee consisted of several downtown merchants, two other business representatives with good design sense (in my opinion) and two city staff -- with yours truly as the ring leader. We presented our recommendations to city council this fall and they were approved after a few ...
Cyber Monday is the new Black Friday.
Christmas is upon us and with it the holiday party scene. A few of us guys were sitting around the other day talking about having a little get-together to celebrate the season.
What a coincidence. It is intriguing to watch Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" biopic about Abraham Lincoln at a time when the current president is receiving secession petitions via the Internet.
As the college football season winds down, players with next-level potential will be getting even closer attention from NFL scouts. While some general managers may have a sour stomach after missing out on last year's top choices Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, this year's class is still intriguing.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama hosted a screening of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" at the White House the other day. He should do it again -- and again and again.
In case you haven't noticed, there's something called "Obamacare" that is changing healthcare in the United States. It's been controversial, especially during the recent presidential election.
As the Christmas shopping season approaches, we should all be reminded of just how important shopping at home really is. Studies show that money spent at independently owned local businesses stays in a community, multiplying as it circulates.
WASHINGTON -- Let's talk about the halter top.
Greetings again from New Mexico. We were blessed as we arrived in El Paso, Texas, back in October with very nice weather. It was cool during the day, great for training and cool at night, great for sleeping. Well the arctic shift has come our way and today it is in the 30s. Over the last several days we have continued to train and have focused on Unarmed Self Defense (USD), base defense, vehicle rollover training and Pashto language training.
During this holiday season, I'm thankful for:
(The following is a portion of Camden Archives and Museum Asst. Director Katherine Richardson's keynote speech at the Baruch Society Annual Meeting, Nov. 15, 2012. Further portions of the speech will be printed in further editions of this column.)
Yesterday, people all over the country gave thanks for the various people and opportunities they have in their lives. In a moment of humility and love, some people probably even recognized that they have all they could ever really need in the present moment.
Mitt Romney finally has it figured out. He knows why he lost. Guess what? It was all President Barack Obama's fault.
Past CIA officers have been known to withhold information about questionable activities so presidents will have "plausible deniability." In the matter of retired Gen. David Petraeus' career-killing extramarital affair, President Barack Obama is stuck with a deniable plausibility.
There's an old joke claiming a new computer is obsolete by the time you buy it.
WASHINGTON -- It is good to be President Barack Obama these days.
WASHINGTON -- Current quibbling over what Jeb Bush meant when he said it's time to phase out and replace Medicare -- as opposed to "attacking the ...
