Letter: Honoring Vietnam veterans

On March 29, 2016, a glorious blue sky welcomed early morning gatherers to the front lawn of Camden City Hall for a ceremony honoring the 50th anniversary on the ending of the Vietnam War.

They need to learn more about the rest of the county they represent.

Reader shares story of adopting shelter dog

Reader still against school referenda

Surprise, surprise, the school board is going to be back in November asking us to approve a $138 million debt to finance the building of new schools and modifications of existing ones. That's correct: $138 million, not $130, which we voted down the first time.
