Clerk of Court and Sheriff want to warn public about phone scam New!


Sumter County Clerk of Court Jamie Campbell would like to notify the public about a recent scam regarding jury selection.

Citizens around Sumter County have gotten recorded phone calls from “Sumter County Court Services Division” asking people to leave a name and number and purporting to fine them for missing jury duty. Although the number may change, the current number is (803) 720-2807.

No such organization exists, Campbell said. If you are selected for jury duty, notifications are always done by mail, he said.

Winter-Winding Down? New!


Winter – Winding Down?

What an odd winter it has been this year in Sumter, South Carolina.  First we received the lions’ share of snow, about seven inches in different parts of the County, while the upstate known for light snows received none.  Next, we have already had, in Sumter County, sub 20o weather for days with highs only reading sub-freezing levels at 280.  Not our typical winter weather in Sumter for sure.  Global warming, is not here!
