Down to the wire

Often as summer officially begins, the General Assembly is wrapping up its business for the year. However, when legislators returned to Columbia on June 19 there were several important issues left to be addressed. During the week, progress was made on one major issue, another major issue died, and one still remains to be resolved.

Camden is the right place to be

Retirement choice

When I retired, one of my friends asked me what I was going to do with my time. I told her I was already volunteering and working out. She looked incredulous and remarked, "Well, I don't know what I will do, but certainly will not do those two." She had no idea how entertaining, healthful, and fulfilling these activities are. I have also met many charming, amazing, and different people there. I had the same choice that most have -- vegetate or activate. I chose to activate when family matters allowed. My life is much fuller because of my involvement.

Googling anti-Obama racism

On the night of Barack Obama's presidential election victory, Americans seemed to shed our troubled legacy of racism. Or did we?

Another great year!

Every year in May, a community member named Bob Watkins invites me to speak to the Golden Club, a really fun group of local retirees that meets for breakfast once a week. Generally, I use this opportunity to talk about the accomplishments of school year. I thought I'd share some of the same highlights in this month's column. It's been another great year! Our students and our staff continue to achieve at an impressive level. Following are just a few examples:

Too many choices can paralyze

Time's old adage says, "More money, more problems," but I think the problems come when people realize they have more choices available when they have more money.

City of Camden in great financial shape

Financially, the city of Camden is in great shape. Stockpiling citizen tax revenue is neither good for the citizen paying the tax or for the city not investing accordingly. Financial stability is not about how much the city collects, but about how well the monies are used. Without increasing your property taxes, the city has made significant progress by assessing requirements and strategically planning without taxing and spending.

Hard times, weak unions

Let's give Wisconsin voters some credit. While others try to find easy right-vs.-left explanations for Gov. Scott Walker's decisive victory, Badger State voters appeared to be worried less about politics than about their state's purse.

Richardson: Puppy love

We are working on a Boykin Spaniel exhibit at the Camden Archives and Museum. Our curator of collections, Rickie Good, is an avowed dog lover whose household is home to four big dogs. She is absolutely in heaven working on this exhibit. With thousands of photographs of Boykin Spaniels on disk at her desk, she declares each one she opens is the cutest.
