Deck the halls… and streets and trees

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.

Barkley, Smith top QB prospect list

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. There may not be as many sure bets as in 2012, but an abundant of talent exists, particularly at the quarterback position.

Camden soldier continues readying for Afghanistan

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.
