“Tourism,” “tourism-related,” “tourists.” Those three words dominated a court hearing held Thursday morning on the city’s use of hospitality tax funds to build a proposed sports complex. The hearing -- non-jury trial before Circuit Court Judge Alison Renee Lee at the Richland County Courthouse in Columbia -- took place as a result of a lawsuit filed by Camden resident Herbert Farber and the Camden Committee for Responsible Government (CCRG) against the city of Camden.
