Preparing to review a Hall & Oates show is like studying for a final exam that you've been neglecting all semester. Their catalog is mammoth: 18 studio albums - one per year from 1972 to 1982 - and six No. 1 hits spread among them. But there was no anticipating the force of nature that hometown heros Daryl Hall and John Oates became at the BB&T Pavilion Sunday night. The venue was packed to the top of its grassy hillside, perhaps because of a LiveNation class-action suit that unleashed ticket vouchers for the show.

Listen to enough country radio and it can feel as if you're playing Mad Libs, and no one's Mad Libbier than Florida Georgia Line. At their show at the BB&T Center on Friday night, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard - who, sure enough, respectively hail from Florida and Georgia - hit pause on their party anthems long enough to convene an impromptu hootenanny with openers Cole Swindell and Jaren Johnston, underlining their origins in Nashville's teeming community...

In the 41/2 years since Camden's Willie Hunter took over as director of the city's Parking Authority, his salary has practically doubled. Last week, a raise of about $18,000 brought his annual pay to $115,000, officials said. Hunter, a politically connected former member of the authority's board, started in January 2012 with a salary of $62,500. He now makes more than Mayor Dana Redd, who earns $102,000. Hunter last week referred questions to Brett Wiltsey, a Cherry Hill-based lawyer who is special counsel to the authority.

About 50 people standing on Camden's Farnham Park green Friday afternoon shouted, "Change" and "Enough is enough," while some prayed. Cars passed and honked, and some pedestrians joined the crowd. Representing about a dozen community advocacy groups and organizations in Camden, the 50 gathered to show solidarity with the city and country in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. "Camden does not agree with what's going on in the nation, but we do agree on keeping love, peace, and respect present," said Arnold Steward, 59, of Operation Camden for Christ.

Over the July Fourth holiday weekend, 16 fires that blazed across Camden were intentionally set, police said, burning in 14 vacant buildings and two cars over 43 hours. On Thursday morning, less than three days after the last fire was set, a police officer searching for the suspect in the arsons found him walking down Federal Street. Charles E. Ricks Jr., 44, later confessed during "an extensive interview process," police said at a Friday afternoon news conference. Ricks has been charged with the 14 fires set inside vacant houses; police said they are looking into whether he is behind "several other arsons" over the last several months.
