CCTC students in fabricated crime scene for final exam

Central Carolina Technical College's CRJ 202 Criminalistics (Forensics) course is taking their final exam Tuesday July 29 at 5:30 p.m. on location at a fabricated crime scene. NCIS agent Tony Horton is the instructor. He has partnered with the Sumter Sheriff's Department and set up an area in the back of Patriot Park off of Hwy. 441 in Sumter for this exam to take place. It will be in a wooded area where students will actually use what they have learned in the classroom to process a crime scene.

Noted and passed - July 28, 2014

• Friday's report that Amtrak is going to spend the next several months refurbishing Camden's passenger rail station off West DeKalb Street is welcome news.

But ...

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
