How the Carver Center fire was ruled arson – Galesburg Register

GALESBURG — Galesburg fire officials reaffirm that the Carver Center fire was intentionally set. 

Jeannie Shelton, executive director of the Carver Community Action Agency, has previously disputed that arson ruling at least twice in The Register-Mail. She repeated that sentiment Friday afternoon.

“No one would have any reason to bring harm to that building. No one. I don’t believe that. That building meant so much to so many people,” she said.

“You lose the services that were so important and so important to all the kids we served, and it makes it very difficult because we’re moving around different programs and doing a summer camp program. That facility was important. Yes, I have a real difficult time with that.”

She continued, “It’s too great of a loss and I have a difficult time believing that. I know I’m not an expert, my

Center for Lifelong Learning hosts kids’ camps

With multiple camps throughout the summer, children will be hard-pressed not to find a camp to suit their interests at Athens State University Center for Lifelong Learning.

Most of the camps are over, but July still has six camps for kids interested in soccer, STEM or crime scene investigation.

“We’ve got dance camps, athletic camps, science camps and art camps,” said Center for Lifelong Learning assistant director Wanda Campbell.

Most camps are for children ages 8-12, but there is a session of Art Explorers for 5-7 year olds.

Campbell said art explorers will paint, draw and learn about the different mediums of art.

For science-minded children, Gross Science allows campers to learn about the funny — and sometimes smelly — sounds that come out of the human body.

“Gross science will focus on exploring slimy, smelly, weird things that happen,” Campbell said. “They’ll explore the digestive track and (learn what) makes noises.”

This is the second year

EB Community Center will hold CSI classes

Interested in what goes on in the real world of forensic science – it isn’t CSI. What does a crime scene investigator really do upon arrival at a crime scene? What is the truth about blood, UV lights and luminal? There is more to that story than what is shown on TV.

The East Berlin Area Community Center (EBACC), located at 405 N. St., is offering classes that will offer a look into the real world of crime scene investigation.

Man fatally shot in parking structure of busy Brea shopping center

BREA – Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in a parking structure at a busy shopping center early Saturday.

Lt. Darrin Devereux said police were called at about 9:30 a.m. for multiple gunshots in a parking structure next to the Target at 855 w. Birch St. in the Brea Marketplace Shopping Center.

Devereux said police found a man dead at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds.

A suspect fled the scene and remains at large, Devereux said. Police did not yet release a suspect description.

Police remained on the scene investigating Saturday afternoon as the parking structure was closed off, preventing some shoppers from getting to their cars.

“We believe there’s no threat to the general public at this time,” Devereux said.

Some witnesses said they heard commotion and saw Target employees rushing to the parking structure with first aid kits.

The store remained open Saturday, while the parking structure was blocked with yellow
