Thursday, August 14, 2014 First Crime Scene Tech Program offered by SWCC The PluggedlnVA (PIVA) Crime Scene Technician Program began on June 5, 2014 and will run through the first half of December. There are ten participants in this six- month program, and class- es meet on the main cam- pus of Southwest Virginia Community College (SWCC) on Thursday and Friday evenings and all day on Saturdays. This program, which is offered through a partner- ship between Southwest Regional Adult Education and Southwest Virginia Community College (SWCC), is third in a series of cohorts funded by the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant. This is the first crime scene technician program to be offered by SWCC, and a new laboratory has been set up on campus. Jerry Stinson, SWCC's Director of Administration of Justice program and pro- gram developer for PIVA Crime Scene Technician gives a detailed description of the lab in the following paragraphs: "The SWCC laboratory represents the modern methods of crime scene gathering and analysis. The lab is equipped with the basics such as micro- scopes, fingerprinting inks and powders, fuming and casting materials. What Co00e00n | sets our lab apart is the recent acquisition of sever- al key pieces of technology such as the Leica Forensic Science Microscope which is the same instrument found in the Department of Forensic Science lab in Richmond and in the FBI lab in Quanitco. We also acquired the Foster and Freeman Latent Print Imager which makes possi- ble significant enhance- ment of latent prints that were once not useable for analysis. This accompa- nies the Morpho Trak fin- gerprint scanner which scans fmgerprints instead of capturing with ink. "The final pieces of our lab are extraordinary for our area. They are the Gas Chromatograph, Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer and Ultra Violet Spectrometer. These highly specialized, scientific instruments give our students not only the ability to retrieve evidence but also develop an under- standing of the analysis phase of the investigation. This is especially relevant to our students who wish to climb the career ladder aspiring to be Forensic Scientists. This equipment is the same as they would be exposed to in the work environment. "Brief descriptions of what our technology is used for is as follows: 1. The use of the Gas Chromatograph includes drug detection, fire investi- gation, environmental analysis, explosives inves- tigation, and identification of unknown samples. 2. Mass Spectrometry is used with the Gas Chromatograph to identify different substances within a test sample. 3. An Ultraviolet Spectrometer is able to determine, depending on the control or calibration, what substances are pres- ent in a target and exactly how much through calcula- tions of observed wave- lengths. 4. A Fourier Transform I n f r a r e d Spectrophotometer (FrIR) is an instrument used to examine specimens, both to detect the presence of target compounds and to measure the quantities of the compounds."

Open House to be held August 16 at King University's Bristol campus King University will host an Open House on Saturday, Aug. 16 from 9- 11 a.m. at Nicewonder Hall located between the entrance gates on King College Road on the north side of King University's main campus. "Our GPS program is tailored to reduce the chal- lenges facing the adult learner," stated Mona Salyer, assistant vice-presi- dent for Enrollment Management Graduate & Professional Studies - Tri- Cities "Time and access are often barriers for stu- dents to finish their degrees. By offering class- es in convenient locations, one night per week, the working adult may obtain their degree in as little as 16 months and open the door for professional advancement."; This Open House will provide the opportunity to meet one-on-one with fac- ulty, financial aid coun- selors, enrollment coun- selors, and career center counselors. GPS degree offerings include undergraduate degrees in Applied Science, Business Administration, Communication, Criminal Justice, English, Health Informatics, Healthcare Administration, History, Information Technology, Interdisciplinary Studies, Pathway, Psychology, Religious Studies, and RN- BSN.

One day I was hunting squirrels at the Buckeye Knob when I heard some- one call to me, "Stay right there, boy, I need to see your license." I didn't have any license. And I was fast on foot so I began to run. Figured I knowed that mountain much better than that game warden, so I thought. I pretty soon lost him. ! looked back and there was no one behind me. But I ran all the way to the house just to find out a few days later that it was another hunter that was in the same shape that I was in. He didn't have any license either But they did run me out of the woods. But years has gone by and I have learned a lesson from that particular morning. Satan is spreading himself as a green boy tree. But I learned, whatever the occa- sion might be, you need to just stand your ground. The Bible says "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." The Bible says, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." And now we are living in a time when our fine government is putting so many laws and restrictions against the Christian people and lead- ing 100% to the Muslim faith, we just need to be steadfast and unmovable, Area reunions...

And fear not, little flock, for there are more with us than there are with them.

Don't run, stand your ground. Just remember the old boy that ran me out of the woods, he was just wanting to have a better chance at all the game.
