CAMDEN - Construction equipment rumbled Monday at the future site of American Water Co. headquarters along the Delaware River.

Nearly 700 employees will call the five-story, 220,000-square-foot building home when it opens late next year.

Although construction began more than two months ago, leaders of business, government and labor held an official groundbreaking ceremony Monday. The American Water building and other development on the waterfront were hailed as significant steps toward the rebirth of the city.

Camden County bike-share program helping people get to work 13 2016

You might call Camden County Freeholders pedal-pushers.  They are working to expand a bike share program to get people up and riding.

Freeholder Jonathan Young said 20 reconditioned bicycles are part of the sustainable Camden County program.

"Instead of throwing them away, putting them in the landfill, they donate them to our sustainability department," he said. "We refurbish them, get them ready to put them on the road."

In this case, the bikes are going to Power Corps members who are working in Camden.

Tasty food is a science, especially when making enough soup to fill thousands of cans. Starches and enzymes must be just right, or the whole batch is ruined.

Sophomore Jarlina Lahara hopes to work here someday.
