60 CENTS

Federal witness declared hostile BY BRADEN BUNCH bbunch@theitem.com COLUMBIA — The hired consultant who developed the calculations used by Tuomey Healthcare System in 2004 to determine how much to pay physicians to work part time in its outpatient surgical center said the salary levels were fair and reason-

able during her testimony Thursday in the federal government’s trial of the local hospital. Kim Saconne, the former employee of Cejka Consulting who conducted the salary evaluations, told the 11-person jury the salary levels her employer suggested were well within fair market value, disputing an essential point to the

USC’s online college helps its students finish degrees BY ROBERT J. BAKER bbaker@theitem.com Susan Elkins knows what it’s like to juggle family and work responsibilities while trying to earn a college degree. As a former educator with Tennessee Tech University, she helped lead a program that helped “adult learners” like herself “work toward having a better quality of life.” As chancellor for Palmetto College, which launched officially on Thursday, ELKINS Elkins will continue that effort from within the University of South Carolina system. “This is just a great service to the state,” Elkins said. “This is a proactive effort to use online learning as a way to create greater access for those people living in rural areas of our state. They juggle so many things, including family, work and other responsibilities. Going to school at the same time can be difficult. Online education gives you that flexibility.” Provided they earn their first two years of credits in the classroom, students can enroll in Palmetto College to work online toward a bachelor’s degree in seven areas of study. “Anyone who has earned 60 hours of credits can apply,” Elkins said. “And that’s whether they were at a local technical school or out-of-state college.” The online classes are administered through several USC campuses located across the state. For example, degrees in business administration will be handled by USC Aiken; degrees in criminal justice and degrees in nursing by USC Upstate in Spartanburg; degrees in human services by USC Beaufort; and degrees in elementary education, liberal arts studies and organizational leadership by the main

prosecution’s case. “I do believe it was reasonable, and we did say something to that effect,” Saconne said of the suggested salaries.

In addition, during crossexamination by Tuomey lawyers, Saconne said there was no pressure from hospital officials to incorporate the value of

the doctors’ referrals when determining their proposed salaries. With their lawsuit, federal prosecutors are attempting to recoup from Tuomey nearly $45 million based on what they consider were violations by the Sumter hospital of Stark Law and the False Claims Act. As part of their case, prosecutors are

COLUMBIA — Data posted online Thursday for South Carolina’s 60 acute-care hospitals shows a wide disparity in their financial health, with the bottom lines of each ranging from a fouryear loss of $96 million to a combined profit of $223 million. The state’s Medicaid agency put the data on its website in an effort to encourage discussions about an industry at the center of the health care debate, director Tony Keck told The Associated Press before the material was posted. More than 40 cents of every dollar spent on health care in South Carolina goes to hospital care, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Keck said he wanted legislators, business groups and the public to have access to hospitals’ financial numbers as the debate over whether to expand Medicaid eligibility under the federal health care law moves to the Senate. He recognized that while he has presented his analysis of hospitals’ sustainability and how Medicaid affects it, hospitals are making their own pitches. “Local hospital CEOs have presented impassioned pleas for Medicaid expansion because of the effect of the uninsured on their bottom lines, so I thought it was time to take the information we have internally — the information they file with us, their data — and make it public to talk about how their business is performing,” Keck said. The president of the state Hospitals Association, which is lobbying for expansion, said he sees no correlation between the data release and the need to help all residents gain access to health care coverage. Thornton Kirby said hospitals support transparency of their financials, but the agency’s data is outdated — 2008 through 2011 — and doesn’t reflect state and federal cuts since then to Medicaid and Medicare

From staff reports

Judge: Man not guilty of growing drugs BY ROBERT J. BAKER bbaker@theitem.com

Report card survey available online A survey on Sumter School District’s standards-based report card is now available at sumterschools.net. The deadline to respond is midnight April 21. All parents of current kindergarten through second-grade students are encouraged to participate. In October of 2012, the district changed the traditional A-through-F grading system to a 1-through-5 standardsbased system for kindergarten through second grade. The intent was to measure a child’s progress toward specified, yearlong goals with a 5 being the highest a student could score. It received mixed reviews from parents, teachers, principals and the public in general. The expansion of the standards-based report cards to third grade was announced in March.

The last general sessions trial to be held at the Sumter County Courthouse ended Thursday morning with a directed verdict for a defendant charged with growing marijuana in 2012. Manning attorney Shaun Kent argued before 3rd Circuit Judge R. Ferrell Cothran that Clinton Sanders did not in fact live at 113 E. Moore St., the home where the marijuana was found growing. Sanders was charged Aug. 17, 2012, with manufacturing marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Assistant Solicitor Bronwyn K. McElveen was able to connect the marijuana to the home but not Sanders. She told a jury during opening arguments Wednesday that “Mr. Sanders was a very good businessman.” “Unfortunately, his business is illegal in many of the states in our country, including in the state of South Carolina,” she said.

Kent presented Cothran with his motion for directed verdict on Thursday morning, saying the state failed to show that Mr. Sanders is the owner of record. An attorney for the defense typically requests a directed verdict when the state rests its case in a criminal proceeding. The argument is typically that the state has failed in its effort to connect the defendant to the acts of which he is accused. “It’s pretty rare for a motion for directed verdict to be granted, though,” Kent said. “But at the end of the day, Mr. Sanders was not guilty of this crime. He didn’t even live at the home.” Sanders was not the only defendant to leave the courthouse this week a free man. Sumter Assistant Public Defender Julie M. Richard convinced a jury that her client, Willie Abrams, was not guilty of attempted murder, armed robbery, first-degree burglary, discharging a firearm into a dwelling and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Abrams was arrested March 9, 2012, after four people identified him as the man who broke into a home on High-

land Avenue minutes earlier. “These four people were inside the home, there was a knock at the door and the defendant puts a gun in a man’s face,” said 3rd Circuit Assistant Solicitor W. Jason Corbett in his opening argument Monday. “These victims suffered probably the scariest thing one can suffer.” Richard told the jury that she wasn’t contesting that the four were accosted by someone at the home. “But based on all the evidence, the police picked up the wrong man,” Richard said, pointing out to jurors in her opening argument that police were chasing Abrams in the neighborhood while a shootout was still reportedly happening at the home. “Within two minutes of this supposed shootout, my client was arrested a quarter-mile away,” Richard said. General sessions will reconvene May 28 at the new Sumter Judicial Center across from the courthouse. Reach Robert J. Baker at (803) 7741211.

3 jailed in bust; marijuana, guns seized BY ROB COTTINGHAM rcottingham@theitem.com Three Sumterites are facing multiple felony drug and gun charges after local authorities conducted a drug bust Tuesday. Gloria Zuell, 50, and Walter Burris, 54, both of 410 Highland Ave., and David Clark, 31, of 413 Highland Ave., were arrested Tuesday as the result of an undercover drug operation conducted by Sumter Police Department’s Organized Crime and Vice Control Unit during the past several weeks. According to reports, undercover officers purchased marijuana from each of the suspects on several occasions from two different apartments on Highland Avenue. When the arrests were made, those officers were able to identify the suspects as the ones who sold the marijuana. Police Chief Russell Roark said such undercover operations are common practice for his department.

“We do these from time to time,” he said, “and we will continue to do so in the future.” On Tuesday, officers of the unit searched the apartments with assistance from deputies from Sumter County Sheriff’s Office’s Narcotics ZUELL Unit. According to reports, the searches yielded $800 in cash, two handguns, a sawed-off shotgun, an assault BURRIS rifle, ammunition and small amounts of marijuana and crack cocaine. Police think Zuell was selling alcoholic CLARK beverages and other merchandise from her home without a business license. Zuell was charged with

two counts of distribution of marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of crack cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a business without a license. Burris was also charged with two counts of distribution of marijuana, possession of marijuana, possession of crack cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Clark was charged with three counts of distribution of marijuana, possession of a sawed-off shotgun and felon in possession of a firearm, the latter resulting from the discovery of a sawed-off 12gauge shotgun and an assault rifle in his residence. While any shotgun with a barrel of less than 14 inches is illegal, the assault rifle, a common AR-type rifle, is a legal firearm so long as it isn’t modified for automatic fire. “From what I’ve been told so far, the gun hasn’t been modified to automatic fire capabilities,” Roark said.

The possession of such a firearm is illegal, however, if the owner is a previously convicted felon, he added. Lt. Don Florence said Clark was previously charged with and convicted of burglary. Being convicted of such a crime makes Clark unqualified to own or possess a firearm, regardless of the type or purpose. The suspects are currently being held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center, awaiting a bond hearing. Two of the suspects, Zuell and Burris, were named as victims in an armed robbery case heard this week at Sumter County Courthouse in which the defendant was acquitted. Detectives of the Organized Crime and Vice Control Unit indicate that the three suspects might face additional charges on federal weapons violations. Reach Rob Cottingham at (803) 774-1225.

to introduce high school students to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith with an emphasis on meeting youth where they are. “This means showing up on their turf at games, school and local hangouts,� Pink

said. “We grow friendships with them, and they see Christ in us.

Gary Graham is hosting the Pinewood Community Gospel Festival at GrahamLea Farm on Reynolds Road. He’s hoping for an even better turn out than last year. “We didn’t decide to do it until late May last year and held it June 28,� he said. “More than 100 people showed up, but it was mostly from the groups involved.

munity groups are involved in this year’s event. If time allows, there will also be an open microphone time. “People know they can sing, so we might have some soloist singing that day,� Graham said. The festival is free and open to the public, but refreshments will be for sale. A cake auction will also be held. “This is simply church ladies bringing church cakes,� Graham said. “Last year, some of them sold for up to $40. We raised $1,000 for youth.� The money raised this year will go to the Pinewood Baptist youth group, The Promiseland Ministries youth group and the Pinewood Methodist Charge youth group.

POLICE BLOTTER CHARGES:

Antawne Dominic Dargan, 20, of 19 Brunhill Circle was arrested for criminal domestic violence following an incident in the 300 block of Harmony Court between 11 and 11:23 p.m. Friday. A 20-year-old female said Dargan punched her several times in the face, causing swelling in her left cheekbone. In the struggle, he also reportedly caused $50 worth of damage to a bedroom door and knocked her 3-year-old down some steps.

Crews seek survivors, bodies after Texas blast WEST, Texas (AP) — Rescuers searched the smoking remnants of a Texas farm town Thursday for survivors of a thunderous fertilizer plant explosion, gingerly checking smashed houses and apartments for anyone still trapped in debris while the community awaited word on the number of dead. Initial reports put the fatalities as high as 15, but later in the day, authorities backed away from any estimate and refused to elaborate. More than 160 people were hurt. A breathtaking band of destruction extended for blocks around the West Fertilizer Co. in the small community of West. The blast shook the ground with the strength of a small earthquake and crumpled dozens of homes, an apartment complex, a school and a nursing home. Its dull boom could be heard dozens of miles away from the town about 20 miles north of Waco. Waco police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton described ongoing search-and-rescue efforts as “tedious and time-consuming,� noting that crews had to shore up much of the wreckage before going in. There was no indication the blast, which sent up a mushroom-shaped plume of smoke and left behind a crater, was anything other than an industrial accident, he said. The explosion was apparently touched off by a fire, but there was no indication what sparked the blaze. The company had been cited by regulators for what appeared to be minor safety and permitting violations over the past decade. The Wednesday night explosion rained burning embers and debris down on terrified residents. The landscape Thursday was wrapped in acrid smoke and strewn with the shattered remains of buildings, furniture and personal belongings. Firefighter Darryl Hall choked up as he described the search. “You’re strong through it because that’s your job. That’s what you’ve been trained to do. But you’re reminded of the tragedy and your family. And that it could be you,� Hall said. “Then it’s a completely different story.� While the community tended to its deep wounds, investigators awaited clearance to enter the blast zone for clues to what set off the plant’s huge stockpile of volatile chemicals. “It’s still too hot to get in there,� said Franceska Perot, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, later

adding that she wasn’t sure when her team would be able to start its investigation. The precise death toll was uncertain. Three to five volunteer firefighters initially were thought to be among the dead, which authorities said could number as many as 15. But the state Department of Public Safety later said the number of fatalities couldn’t be confirmed. The Dallas Fire-Rescue Department said one of its off-duty firefighters, Capt. Kenny Harris, was among those killed. Harris — a 52-year-old married father of three grown sons — lived in West and had decided to lend a hand to the volunteers battling the blaze. The many injuries included broken bones, cuts and bruises, respiratory problems and minor burns. A few people were reported in intensive care and several more in critical condition. First responders evacuated 133 patients from the nursing home, some in wheelchairs. Many were dazed and panicked and did not know what happened. William Burch and his wife, a retired Air Force nurse, entered the damaged nursing home before first responders arrived. They searched separate wings and found residents in

wheelchairs trapped in their rooms. The halls were dark, and the ceilings had collapsed. Water filled the hallways. Electrical wires hung eerily from the ceilings. “They had Sheetrock that was on top of them. You had to remove that,� Burch said. It was “completely chaotic.�

Gov. Rick Perry called the explosion “a truly nightmare scenario for the community� and said he had been in touch with President Obama, who promised his administration’s assistance with operations on the ground. Authorities said the plant handles both the

fertilizers anhydrous ammonia and ammonium nitrate, the latter of which was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City

bombing and several other attacks, such as the first bombing attempt at the World Trade Center in 1993.

Language of terror

W

ASHINGTON — Terrorism is speech — speech that gathers its audience by killing innocents as theatrically as possible. The 19th-century anarchist Paul Brousse called it “propaganda by deed.” Accordingly, the Boston Marathon attack, the first successful terror bombing in the U.S. since 9/11, was designed for maximum effect. At the finish line there would be not only news cameras but also hundreds of personal videos to amplify the message. But what message? There was no claim of responsibility, no explanatory propaganda. Indeed, was it terrorism at all? There was much ado about President Obama’s nonuse of Charles KRAUTHAMMER the word “terrorism” in his first statement to the nation after the bombing. Indeed, the very next morning, he took to the White House briefing room for no other reason than to pronounce the event an “act of terrorism.” He justified the update as a response to “what we now know.” But there had been no new information overnight. Nothing changed, except a certain trepidation about the original omission. There was no need to be so sensitive, however. The president said that terrorism is any bombing aimed at civilians. Not quite. Terrorism is any attack on civilians for a political purpose. Until you know the purpose, you can’t know if it is terrorism. Sometimes an attack can have no purpose. The Tucson shooter who nearly killed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was simply deranged, a certified paranoid schizophrenic. Or there might be some personal vendetta — a purpose, but not political. In the Boston case, conceivably a grudge against the marathon, its organizers or something associated with the race. That, of course, is extremely improbable. (Schizophrenics are too disorganized to set off simultaneous bombs, for example.) It’s overwhelmingly likely that the Boston attack was political, and therefore terrorism. Nonetheless, the president’s nonuse of the word was no big deal. Why then was he so sensitive that he came out the next morning to correct the omission? Answer: Benghazi, in which the administration had been roundly and correctly criticized for refusing to call it terrorism for so long. Benghazi, however, was totally different. There, the word mattered very much. There were two possible explanations for the killing of the four Americans: a deliberate preplanned attack (terrorism), or a spontaneous demonstration gone wild. The administration tried

to peddle the spontaneous demonstration story in order to place the blame on a mob incited by a nutty Coptic American who had made an offensive video. This would have spared the administration any culpability. To use the word terrorism, meaning deliberate attack, would have undermined the blame-shifting and raised exactly the questions — about warnings ignored, inadequate security, absence of contingency plans — that have dogged the administration for months. In Boston, in contrast, there is no question about deliberateness. Nor is anyone blaming the administration for inadequate warning or protection. Here, the linguistic challenge for the president is quite different. What if this turns out to be the work of Islamists? The history of domestic attacks since 9/11 would suggest the odds are about 50-50, although the crude technique and the unclaimed responsibility would suggest a somewhat lower probability. But if it is nevertheless found to be Islamist, will Obama use the word? His administration obsessively adopts language that extirpates any possible connection between Islam and terrorism. It insists on calling jihadists “violent extremists” without ever telling us what they’re extreme about. It even classified the Fort Hood shooting, in which the killer screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered 13 people, as “workplace violence.” In a speech just last month in Jerusalem, the president referred to the rising tide of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists as the rise of “non-secular parties.” Non-secular? Isn’t that a euphemism for “religious,” i.e., Islamist? Yet Obama couldn’t say the word. This is no linguistic triviality. He wouldn’t be tripping over himself to avoid any reference to Islam if it was insignificant. Obama has performed admirably during the Boston crisis, speaking both reassuringly and with determination. But he continues to be linguistically uneasy. His wavering over the word terrorism is telling, though in this case unimportant. The real test will come when we learn the motive for the attack. As of this writing, we don’t know. It could be Islamist, white supremacist, anarchist, anything. What words will Obama use? It is a measure of the emptiness of Obama’s preferred description — “violent extremists” — that, even as we know nothing, it can already be applied to the Boston bomber(s). Which means, the designation is meaningless. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@ charleskrauthammer.com.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Fathers should have same rights as mothers I would like to thank all the readers that gave me such positive feedback on my letter on prejudice against fathers in the S.C. family court system. I was amazed and saddened that there have been so many “good” fathers that have had the same disappointing treatment in this system. I don’t like to bring my politics into the public eye, but I felt this issue should be addressed. I have started a campaign in Sumter to bring this issue to the forefront of some of our leaders in Columbia. If we do not take a stand against

wrongdoing, it will continue to exist. Fathers should be as much a part of their children’s lives as the mothers are. I am a mother, and I am ashamed that some mothers out there think just because they gave birth to a child, they should be the “only” parent, leaving the father out of all decision making on a child’s behalf. I believe a father should have the same rights as the mother if he wants to. I feel like a judge does not have the right to take a father out of the child’s life. As I said before, some fathers do not care and do not want to be a part of their child’s life while waiting for the mother to decide his fate during a di-

A recent editorial from a South Carolina newspaper: APRIL 13

The Post and Courier of Charleston on state funding for DOT: Two bills that would have given the state Department of Transportation a badly needed increase in the state gas tax were scrapped this week, even as members of the House Ways and Means Committee praised bill sponsors for tackling a problem that needs immediate attention. Certainly, Reps. B.R. Skelton, R-Pickens, and Tommy Stringer, R-Greenville, deserve credit for taking their respective stabs at a longstanding state problem. And the committee’s inaction is all the more perplexing in light of its praise. The need for more funding has been thoroughly documented for years. It also should be painfully evident to any motorist who spends much time traveling on the state’s inadequate highways. A recent study for the DOT

put the shortfall at nearly $30 billion over the next 20 years. And it noted that 30 to 40 percent of the state gas tax is paid by out-of-state motorists and truckers. That’s a compelling argument for increasing the gas tax, which at 16.5 cents per gallon is among the lowest in the nation. And it hasn’t been increased since 1987, despite repeated warnings about the deteriorating condition of our roadways. The longer that repairs are delayed, the greater the expense will ultimately be. The gas tax functions as a user fee, and it should be increased to a level adequate to improve and maintain the state road system. ... Rep. Skelton wanted to increase the gas tax by 10 cents a gallon, with a rebate to residents for the first two and a half years. During the effective period of the rebate, it would have raised $124 million annually from out-of-state motorists. After the rebate expired, it would have generated $335 million a year.

Rep. Stringer would have increased the gas tax by a nickel a gallon, and then provided for further hikes based on the consumer price index. It would have raised about $167 million the first year. In contrast, Gov. Nikki Haley has recommended an additional $100 million for the DOT, using new revenue and shifting to road projects those gas tax revenues that have been diverted to other areas. House Speaker Bobby Harrell wants to give the DOT revenue from vehicle sales taxes sales, raising about $80 million. That plan has been approved by the House. ... Obviously, neither the governor’s supplemental funding plan nor the speaker’s approaches the $1.5 billion extra annual allocation that the DOT needs in order to catch up on overdue projects. But each is a start in the right direction. And having now recognized that the problem exists, maybe next year the House budget writing committee will actually do something to address it.

A father should have the right to know where and by whom their children are being kept, when and where doctor appointments are, and any other detail of said children’s lives. But, some mothers do everything they can to keep the father out of said children’s lives. This behavior on a mother’s part has got to stop.

Woman charged after man found with bleeding arm FROM STAFF REPORTS A Cherryvale-area woman is in custody after officers found a man bleeding from his arm on Dorsey Drive on Wednesday. Patricia A. Gould, 50, of 4428 Dorsey Drive, was arrested Wednesday and charged with attempted murder.

According to reports, officers responded to complaints of a man walking down the road with blood run- GOULD ning down his arm. When officers arrived, they found the man lying on the

ground at the intersection of Cherryvale and Dorsey drives. A witness said the man and Gould were drinking at their home earlier that evening when the two began to argue. Gould then reportedly began striking the victim. When he pushed her away, officers say, the suspect then grabbed a kitchen knife and

tried to cut the victim. The man then attempted to flee the residence. As he did so, he was cut on his left forearm. Officers then reported to the incident location and asked what happened. Gould reportedly said that she grabbed the knife to protect herself from the man

when they started arguing. Gould led officers to a knife that was found in her kitchen. Gould was then arrested and transported to SumterLee Regional Detention Center. The victim was taken to Tuomey Regional Medical Center and treated for his wound.

Authorities seek man accused in purse snatching FROM STAFF REPORTS Local authorities are looking for a man thought to have snatched a purse from an elderly woman during the weekend. Sumter Police Department officials released video images Thursday, hoping someone can help identify the man who allegedly snatched a purse from a 75-year-old woman about noon Saturday. The theft occurred in the parking lot at Savannah Square shopping center on Pinewood Road. The victim reported that a man got out of a white car and grabbed her purse while it was hanging from her arm. The man then returned to his vehicle, which was parked in the lot, and fled the scene. Footage and photos of the suspect were captured by cameras at several local businesses and ATMs as he attempted to use the woman’s debit card. The suspect is described as a white man between 18 and 25 years old, about 6 feet tall with an average build and wearing a white T-shirt and blue work pants. The vehicle is thought to be a white four-door 2004 Chevrolet Malibu. The woman reportedly suffered minor injuries to her hand but required no medical treatment. If you have any information regarding this incident or the identity of the suspect, contact the Sumter Police Department at (803) 436-2717 or CrimeStoppers at (803) 436-2718 or 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers may remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward.

Because they are hosting the event, the Crestwood High School Drumline will not compete in this year’s Drumline Battle on Saturday at Donald L. Crolley Memorial Stadium. The group will instead perform an exhibition at the event, which begins at 3 p.m.

Drumline battle back Saturday BY JAMIE H. WILSON Special to The Item The pounding rhythms of the annual Drumline Battle will once again fill the air this Saturday at Donald L. Crolley Memorial Stadium at Hillcrest Middle School. Event coordinator and Crestwood High School Director of Bands Brian Moss said some of the participating drumline programs have been working on their shows for nearly a year. “It’s going to be a great show,” he said. The gates to the 3 p.m. event open at 2 p.m. Seven state high school drumline programs are slated to compete for the title of top drumline. Crestwood High School Drumline will also be at the event but will perform an ex-

hibition instead of competing since they are hosting the event. Moss said the Crestwood High School drumline is worth seeing, having already won first place in a band competition earlier in the school year. “We have a lot of ‘wows’ in our show,” he said. “Our style is entertainment.” Moss said the judges will assess the performances based on the degree of difficulty, showmanship, energy and presentation as well as technical proficiency. Musical organizations from other local elementary and middle schools will also perform during the event. Vendors such as Captain D’s, Raging Pepperoni and others will be on hand to serve food. A proclamation from the may-

or’s office is slated to designate April 20, 2013, as Battle of the Drumlines’ Day. In the event of inclement weather, the battle will be held in the Crestwood High School gym. This year, donations and proceeds will go to support Crosswell Children’s Home. Suggested donations include socks, underwear, white T-shirts, toothbrushes and toothpaste, hair care products, baby wipes, diapers and Pull-Ups. Tickets are currently on sale for $5 with a donated item or $8 without, in advance; $8 with a donated item or $10, at the gate. Children three and younger will be admitted free. Tickets can be purchased from Crestwood High School. Contact the school at (803) 469-6200.

CAR SEAT SAFETY CHECK

FROM STAFF REPORTS Deputies arrested a Florida man after a traffic stop on Interstate 95 resulted in the seizure of four pounds of marijuana Wednesday. Clarence Lee Blair, 42, of Jacksonville, Fla., was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana. According to reports, a deputy on patrol witnessed the suspect’s rented 2013 burgundy Ford following too closely to a tractortrailer while driving south on I-95 at a speed estimated at about 70 BLAIR miles per hour. During the stop, the deputy noticed the suspect was sweating profusely and shaking. As the officer continued to ask questions, the suspect became so anxious, the officer reported he thought Blair was going to pass out. According to reports, the suspect began to contradict himself as to where he was going and why. When asked about the presence of illegal drugs in his vehicle, he became noticeably more anxious than before. The reaction of a dog from a Clarendon County K-9 unit called in to detect whether illegal narcotics were in the vehicle warranted a search. Officers’ search yielded a 5-gram bag of suspected marijuana from luggage and an ammunition can from the trunk containing four black trash bags. Each of the bags contained approximately one pound of suspected marijuana. Blair was taken to Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.

Pinewood Derby comes to Sumter Mall Saturday BY JADE ANDERSON janderson@theitem.com Cub Scouts from 13 packs will be at Sumter Mall, 1057 Broad St., this weekend to race their cars. The Henry Shelor Boy Scout District — which covers Sumter, Clarendon and Lee counties — will host its Pinewood Derby Saturday. Pit time starts at 9 a.m. and the races start at 10 a.m. Following the race for packlevel winners, there will be an open race, but all cars must be registered during the pit time. “The open race is more a time for dad to run his car against his son’s,” said Tim Hipkins, event coordinator. “It’s so cool to see those who

raced as kids come back.” Awards will be handed out once all races are completed. All Cub Scouts who participate will receive patches and certificates. Trophies will be given for top three fastest, best in show, best Scout done and best paint job. “We want the boy doing as much hands on as they can,” Hipkins said. “We want them to be the primary working on it. Part of the idea is ‘do your best.’” Private donors usually supply the trophies, he said. The Pinewood Derby was started by Cubmaster Donald Murphy and the first one was held in 1953 by Cub Scout Pack 280C of Manhattan Beach, Calif., according to pinewoodderby.org. It was publicized in Boys’ Life, the monthly maga-

zine of the Boy Scouts of America, in October 1954, and spread from there, the website states. “A lot of packs give the boys the cars as a Christmas gift,” Hipkins said. “It contains a block of wood, usually pine, four nails, four wheels, basic rules and number stickers. That is the standard for the whole nation.” His boys, Pack 323 out of Alice Drive Baptist, started working on theirs in February. “I help those who don’t have family members familiar with wood working or single moms with sons,” Hipkins said. “It’s about having fun (and) really encouraging teamwork.” This relationship is the focus of the project. “Bonds are strengthened as the Cub Scout partners

with a parent or adult mentor to design, carve, paint, weigh, refine and race the car,” the website states. “In addition, Cub Scouts build confidence and take pride in their own growing skills and hard work.” Good sportsmanship is also encouraged. “It’s about supporting teammates, about being gracious even if you don’t win,” Hipkins said. “It’s a really proud moment as an adult when they get it and start yelling, ‘yeah, yeah’ for each other.” For more information, contact Tim Hipkins at timnkristi@yahoo.com. Reach Jade Anderson at (803) 774-1250.

DERBY FACTS: • A fast Pinewood Derby car can reach a speed of nearly 20 miles per hour. • If a Pinewood Derby car racing down the track was enlarged to the size of a real automobile, it would be speeding at more than 200 miles an hour. • The first Pinewood Derby was run in 1953 at the Manhattan Beach Scout House near Los Angeles when Cubmaster Don Murphy introduced the idea to Pack 280C. • Since then, Cub Scouts have built close to 100 million Pinewood Derby racers. • If you lined up all the Pinewood Derby race cars bumper-to-bumper, they would reach more than 7,000 miles. That’s far enough to stretch from Charlotte to the North Pole. • If every Pinewood Derby car made this year took just one run down the track, the combined distance would be from the Earth to the Moon and back. • Reader’s Digest magazine included the Pinewood Derby in its 2006 Best of America list as “a celebrated rite of spring.” Source: pinewoodderby.org.

MAN BURNED IN CLARENDON HOUSE FIRE

Clarendon County Fire Chief Frances Richbourg sifts through ashes at the rear of a home on Kingstree Highway about 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Yogi Johnson, who lived at the home located at the intersection of North Brewington Road and the Kingstree Highway, was transported to Clarendon Memorial Hospital with burns to his face and chest area.

Man charged for ricin letters called ‘troubled’ OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi man charged with sending ricin-laced letters to the president and other officials was described Thursday as a good father, a quiet neighbor and an entertainer who impersonated Elvis at parties. But accounts also show a man who spiraled into emotional turmoil trying to get attention for his claims of uncovering a conspiracy to sell body parts on the black market. CURTIS Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, detailed in numerous Web posts over the past several years the event that he said “changed my life forever”: the chance discovery of body parts and organs wrapped in plastic in small refrigerator at a hospital where he worked as a janitor more than a decade ago. He tried to talk to officials and get the word out online, but he thought he was being railroaded by the government. Authorities say the efforts culminated in letters sent to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a judge in Mississippi. “Maybe I

have your attention now even if that means someone must die,” the letters read, according to an FBI affidavit. “He is bipolar, and the only thing I can say is he wasn’t on his medicine,” said his ex-wife, Laura Curtis. Jim Waide, an attorney for the Curtis family, said Paul Kevin Curtis was prescribed medication three years ago. “When he is on his medication, he is terrific, he’s nice, he’s functional,” Waide said. “When he’s off his medication, that’s when there’s a problem.” Waide represented Curtis in a lawsuit he filed in August 2000 against North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, where he had worked from 1998 until he was fired in 2000. Waide said he withdrew from the case because Curtis didn’t trust him. The suit, claiming employment discrimination, was dismissed. “He thought I was conspiring against him,” Waide said. “He thinks everybody is out to get him.” Curtis made a brief court appearance Thursday, wearing shackles and a Johnny Cash T-

shirt. Attorney Christi R. McCoy said he “maintains 100 percent” that he is innocent. He did not enter pleas to the two federal charges against him. He is due back in court Friday afternoon. In several letters to U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican, and other officials, Curtis said he was writing a novel about black market body parts called “Missing Pieces.” Curtis also had posted language similar to the letters on his Facebook page. The documents indicate Curtis had been distrustful of the government for years. In 2007, Curtis’ ex-wife called police in Booneville, Miss., to report that her husband was extremely delusional, antigovernment and felt the government was spying on him with drones. But Laura Curtis said Thursday that she doesn’t think the allegations about her ex-husband. “He just likes to speak out,” she said. “What they say he did is so unlike him, it’s unreal,” she added. “Until I hear him say he did it, I would not, I would not, I could not believe it.”

BOSTON (AP) — The FBI released photos and video Thursday of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing and asked for the public’s help in identifying them, zeroing in on the two men on surveillance-camera footage less than three days after the deadly attack. The photos depict one man in a dark baseball cap and the other in a white cap worn backward. The men were seen walking one behind the other in the crowd, and the one in the white hat was seen setting down a backpack at the site of the second explosion, said Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston. “Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members of the suspects. Though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us,” DesLauriers said. The images were released hours after President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended an interfaith service at a Roman Catholic cathedral in Boston to remember the three people killed and more than 180 wounded in the twin blasts Monday at the marathon finish line. The two men — dubbed Suspect 1 (in the dark hat) and Suspect 2 (in the white hat) — are considered armed and extremely dangerous, DesLauriers said, and people who see them should not approach them. “Do not take any action on your own,” he warned. The break in the investigation came just days after the attack that tore off limbs, shattered windows and raised the specter of another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. FBI photo-analysis specialists have been analyzing a mountain of surveillance footage and amateur pictures and video for clues to who carried out the attack and why. Generally, law enforcement agencies release photos of suspects only as a last resort, when they need the public’s help in identifying or capturing someone. Releasing photos can be a mixed bag: It can tip off a suspect and deny police the element of surprise. It can also trigger an avalanche of tips, forcing police to waste valuable time chasing them down. Within moments of the announcement, the FBI website crashed, perhaps because of a crush of visitors. In the images, both men appear to be wearing dark jackets. Suspect 1 appears to be wearing a backpack. The planting of the backpack is not depicted in the video footage that was made public. The FBI made no mention of the men’s height, weight or age range and would not discuss the men’s ethnicity.

TUOMEY from Page A1 portion of these facility fees to pay the physicians, creating an illegal kickback. Although called as a witness for the prosecution, Saconne’s answers appeared to frustrate federal attorney Tracy Hilmer, who said Saconne was changing and qualifying her testimony when compared to her previous deposition. Before the lunch break in Thursday’s proceedings, Hilmer asked Senior Federal District Court Judge Margaret Seymour to allow her to treat Saconne as a hostile witness, and the judge approved the request. Upon their return to court, Hilmer asked Saconne to read from a previous deposition, which Hilmer pointed out was contradictory to some of Saconne’s testimony. Saconne tried to explain the discrepancies by saying she did not understand some of the questions she was asked during her deposition. Hilmer also pointed out that, according to Saconne’s figures, Tuomey ended up paying each of the 19 doctors signed to the contracts under question more than the revenue the doctors were bringing in

for their services. On average, as Hilmer illustrated with Saconne’s own figures, the doctors received 19 percent more in salaries and benefits. “They could be working very hard, but they’re not getting collections, so they’re not getting paid what they should be,” Saconne said. Once Saconne said this, Hilmer asked if the former consultant pointed this out in any of the documents she prepared when coming up with the suggested salary levels. Saconne said she did not. Hilmer also brought into evidence spreadsheets created by Saconne, which said Tuomey would lose more than $12.4 million in facilities fees over a 13year period, but Saconne said this figure was not used in determining salaries. “Hospital technical fees were not considered in any part of this,” Saconne said. Proceedings are scheduled to reconvene at 9 a.m. today at the Matthew J. Perry Federal Courthouse, marking the fourth day of what is expected to be a threeweek trial.

“During those first two years, students build some of the skills you need to build face-toface, (and they) mature to the point they can handle this a bit better,” he said. Ultimately, Palmetto College expands access to higher education in a state where fewer than one in four adults hold a bachelor’s degree, Elkins said. The state Legislature committed $5 million to the effort, she added. “This is a wonderful investment for South Carolina,” she said. “This makes getting a highquality bachelor’s degree from USC much more affordable, accessible and convenient for students.” For more information, or to apply, visit palmettocollege.sc.edu.

campus in Columbia. Since initial plans for the program began nearly two years ago, USC officials have touted Palmetto College as a way for graduates of the satellite campuses in Sumter, Lancaster, Union and Salkehatchie’s branches in Allendale and Walterboro to earn a four-year degree without relocating. And while anyone who has amassed two years of credits can apply, not everyone will be accepted. “It’s not open enrollment,” said USC provost Michael Amiridis. “We treat admissions very seriously. We want to make sure the people we bring in have a reasonable chance of success. This is going to be as rigorous as an on-campus course.” He said requiring students to have 60 credit hours from in-classroom experience helps with that goal.

MEDICAID from Page A1 reimbursement rates. “We all know that past performance is no indication of future success,” he said. “We strongly urge anyone wanting to know the facts about a hospital’s financial status to contact that hospital.” According to the report, Tuomey Healthcare System in Sumter showed a $12.2 million profit for hospital fiscal years 2008 to 2011. Clarendon Memorial Hospital in Manning showed a $6.2 million loss for the same period. Gov. Nikki Haley has steadfastly refused to allow the Medicaid expansion to hundreds of thousands of additional poor adults, saying the state cannot afford the costs in the years to

come. The federal government has promised to pay the full cost for three years and later fund 90 percent of costs. But the Republican governor doesn’t have the final say; the Legislature does. The House’s budget plan for 2013-14 puts more than $80 million toward Keck’s initiatives to improve residents’ health, particularly in rural areas where people tend to be in poorer health and specialists are lacking. The plan, funded largely by redirecting savings from previous cost-cutting initiatives, includes reimbursing 18 rural hospitals 100 percent of their costs for treating patients without health care.

LMA, WH to battle for Region II-3A title BY MICHAEL CHRISTOPHER mchristopher@theitem.com

Sumter starting pitcher Phillip Watcher hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Gamecocks a 7-6 comeback victory and secure second place in Region VI-4A.

Watcher’s GS lifts Sumter Junior’s homer helps Gamecocks captures No. 2 seed in region BY DENNIS BRUNSON dennisb@theitem.com Junior Phillip Watcher gave Sumter High School senior baseball players Taylor McFaddin, Will Smith, John Lee Campbell and Bryson Johnson a Senior Night they’ll never forget. Watcher mashed a grand slam home run in the bottom of the sixth inning to lift the Gamecocks to a 7-6 victory over South Florence on Thursday at Gamecock Field. “It was a 3-1 fastball right down the middle,” said Watcher, who helped NORRIS his team rally from a 6-2 deficit after the Bruins had scored four runs in the top of the sixth. “In my mind I was thinking I was going to kill this ball.” Not only did Watcher’s slam off of SF relief pitcher Lindsey Robinson give

Clemson women’s coach Tribble dies BY MANDRALLIUS ROBINSON Greenville News Former Clemson women’s basketball coach Annie Tribble died Thursday morning after a battle with cancer. Tribble, 80, had been in hospice care in Anderson, according to a news release by Clemson. Tribble directed the Tigers from 1976 to 1987, earning 200 victories, an Atlantic Coast Conference championship and a berth into the TRIBBLE inaugural NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament in 1982. Her influence is still present in women’s basketball, especially at Queens University in Charlotte, where Cheryl Nix is the head women’s coach. Nix played for Tribble from 1984 to 1987. Nix said she has attempted to emulate Tribble’s philosophy of inspiration and integrity. “She was a great example of how the game and life should be approached,” Nix said. “She was just a great role model to all of us who played for her. We’ll all miss her, and I know she’s touched a lot SEE TRIBBLE, PAGE B5

Sumter a dramatic victory, it also clinched second place in Region VI-4A and a home game against Dutch Fork next Thursday in the opening game of the district tournament in the 4A state playoffs. “It’s nice not to have to wait on Conway (playing West Florence today),” said Gamecock head coach Joe Norris, whose team improved to 15-8 overall and finished 8-4 in the region. If Sumter had lost on Thursday, it would have needed Conway to lose to West Florence today to clinch second. A Conway win and an SHS loss would have made Sumter the No.3 seed opening district on the road.

Davis leads at RBC Heritage; Day, Leishman in contention BY PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press HILTON HEAD ISLAND — Jason Day and Marc Leishman kept the Australian flag flying high at the RBC Heritage. Four days after countryman Adam Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters, Day and Leishman shot 4-under 67 and trailed leader Brian Davis by two shots DAVIS Thursday after the first round at Harbour Town Golf Links. Davis lost a playoff to Jim Furyk in 2010 at Harbour Town after calling a penalty on himself. This time, the Englishman birdied eight of his final 14 holes for a 65 to pull past Day and Leishman, who were back in contention after falling short Sunday at Augusta National. Kevin Streelman and Charley Hoffman were a stroke behind Davis at 66, while Johnson Wagner also shot 67. U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson led a large group at 68. Day and Leishman can’t make history for their country at the RBC Heritage — only enhance it. Several Aussies have won at Harbour Town, including Graham Marsh in 1977 and Greg Norman 11 years later. Aaron Baddeley was the last Australian to take the champion’s tartan jacket in 2006. “For a population that I

The last time SCISA Region II-3A baseball rivals Laurence Manning Academy and Wilson Hall met, it was a battle of unbeaten teams. While neither team is still undefeated, today’s meeting at Baron Field could determine the region championship. The Swampcats, who defeated Wilson Hall 3-1 in Manning on on March 22 despite being outhit 10-2, are 5-0 in the region and can wrap up JONES the league crown with a win in the 7 p.m. contest.. The Barons, 17-6 overall, are 4-1 in the region. If they win today, a playoff game will be held at a date to be determined to decide the region winner. “At this point, with us being fortunate enough to win the first game, I think the pressure would be on them (Wilson Hall),” said LMA head coach Billy Sylvester, whose team is 18-2 overall. “You’ve got to win. You play to win the region title and then you move on from there; so obviously any time you play a game when you’re talking about high school kids, there is going to be pressure on them.” “This is a game we’ve SEE TITLE, PAGE B5

COLUMBIA – The silver necklace hung around Colby Holmes’ neck, with a cross dangling off the chain, resting on the front of Holmes’ South Carolina practice jersey. Inscribed on the cross: “PHIL 4:13.” Holmes, the son of a Baptist minister, HOLMES likes being reminded of this Bible verse from Philippians: “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” As USC begins the second half of its Southeastern Conference schedule tonight against Kentucky, Holmes is trying to gather the mental and physical resolve to turn his senior season around, and to help the Gamecocks (2810, 8-7 SEC) finish strong as they aim to earn hosting rights for an NCAA tournament Regional. Holmes was a weekend starting pitcher for most of the past two seasons, and began this season as USC’s No. 2 starter. Three consecutive poor starts last month – 11 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings – bounced him from the rotation. He followed it with four outings that typified his inconsistent season: a strong

He was a little shaky early, but got better.” Long walked Tee Dubose to open Sumter’s half of the sixth and Jacob Watcher blooped a single into right.

McFaddin hit a high chopper to third for an infield single that scored courtesy runner Dante Hartman to make it 6-3. Robinson got Charlie Barnes to fly out to shallow left field for the second out.

Jacob Watcher, who re”lieved in the sixth and got two outs to get the Gamecocks out of a bases-loaded, 1-out jam without further damage, pitched the seventh to get the victory. “It was big to get this victory and get second place,” Phillip Watcher said. “That means we’re at home, and we play really well at home.

GOLF CAMP CORRAL TOURNAMENT

HERITAGE from Page B1 said, especially with Davis playing Harbour Town as well as anyone in recent years. Davis was toe-to-toe with Furyk three year ago until he brushed a loose reed with his club in the marsh area left of the 18th green. Davis immediately called the infraction, which essentially gave Furyk the crown. Davis, never better than second on the PGA Tour, still gets stopped at country clubs and airports by admirers of his honest act on the course in a situation where victory would’ve made Davis’ career much smoother. “I’d like to do something else in this tournament so I don’t get remembered just for that,” he said, chuckling. If Davis keeps playing like he did in the first round, he might reach that goal come Sunday. He was 1 over on his first four holes when he put his approach on the par-5 fifth about 6 feet away for an eagle try. Davis missed and left disappointed with a birdie, but that began a run of eight birdies on his final 14 holes. He rolled in a 22-foot birdie putt on the tricky 17th hole to reach 6 under and score in the 60s for the 10th time in his last 13 rounds at Harbour Town. “I wasn’t worried about my score or about my misses, I was just play-

ing,” Davis said. Day and Leishman excelled despite the fatigue that builds up playing a major — “I felt like I was there for a month,” Day said of Augusta — and both found their stride in a group of three that included Simpson, who’ll defend his major championship in two months at Merion. None of the three made bogey on the round. Simpson headed up a group three shots behind that included defending RBC Heritage champ Carl Pettersson and Bill Haas. Luke Donald, sixth in the world, was another stroke back at 69. Leishman didn’t play much since last Sunday. He took an ocean swim Wednesday and felt refreshed and primed for another run to the top before some time away from the course. “I’m planning on being in contention all week and then really enjoying my two weeks off,” he said. Not all the Masters contenders who chose to play — there were 14 of the world’s top 29 golfers in the field — came back with a strong round. Brandt Snedeker, at No. 5 the highest-ranked player in the field, bogeyed four of his first nine holes and was eight shots back after a 73. Snedeker came into last Sunday with a share of the Masters lead, but fell off with a final-round 75.

USC visit impresses Goose Creek product T Coach Morris to make sure it is OK with them,� Watson said. “I am fully committed to them, so if they are not cool with it then I am going to respect Clemson and not go.� Swinney is on record as saying he does not consider a prospect as committed if he is taking visits to other schools and in the past has withdrawn offers from those players. However, based on Watson’s comments, his visits don’t appear to be an issue with Swinney. Defensive back Darin Smalls of Summerville High did not make either the USC or Clemson spring games last Saturday. Smalls was at USC’s junior day in March. He also visited FSU this spring and he will go to VT this weekend. Right now, USC remains the team to beat. “It’s not a huge lead, but they are out front pretty far,� he said. “I’ve been there a lot and I like the campus and the whole college. I talk to (assistant) Coach (Grady) Brown about every two days. We talk about where I fit in and about the defense.� Smalls said VT has been making a strong push, but his top three right now are USC, FSU and Clemson. Smalls plans to wait until National Signing Day in February of 2014 before declaring his intentions. TE Jeb Blazevich of Charlotte may announce his decision sooner than originally planned. Blazevich was going to wait until the summer to make a decision, but now says mid-May is more likely. His final six are Clemson, Alabama, UGA, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Ohio State. Blazevich’s last visits were to Clemson, UGA, ND, Ole Miss and Alabama, which he visited last Friday. “The Clemson visit went great, but I’ve been there so many times that I know what to expect,� he said. “I went to Georgia before that, so it was a good comparison. I saw how they run their offenses and the day-to-day operations.� Blazevich spoke highly of his Notre Dame trip. “It’s a special place, no doubt about it,� said Blazevich. “They use their tight end a lot and they have a great alumni base.� As for Ole Miss, four of Blazevich’s cousins attend the school, prompting him to say, “That’s a plus.� His brother attends Clemson. Linebacker Dwight Williams of Gardena, Calif., revealed a reduced list of 16 schools he’s considering last week, and Clemson is on the list. Joining the Tigers are Ari-

USC from Page B1 start at the College of Charleston, a poor start against Charleston Southern, an encouraging relief appearance at Tennessee and a messy start at Florida. This has been a baffling year for Holmes, who last season had a 3.05 earned-run average, 65 strikeouts and 17 walks, following a 2011 season of 3.69, 77

and 21. “It’s weird, but it happens to everybody,� Holmes said. “You can’t be perfect every time. I’ve got faith that I’m going to have a better second half of the season.� The Gamecocks cannot afford for him to continue slipping. They simply don’t have enough other healthy

zona State, California, Florida, UGA, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oregon State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, UCLA, Southern California and Washington. He cut his list down from 42 offers. DB Tony Brown of Beaumont, Texas, has nearly 30 offers, including Clemson. Brown runs track and field and is nationally ranked in the hurdles and the 100-meter dash. The two schools Brown has visited are Alabama and Texas. “I would like to see what Clemson has to offer,� Brown said. Brown added he’ll only go to a school that will allow him to run track. He does not have any favorites. Clemson offered running back Joe Mixon of Oakley, Calif., several weeks ago, and it wasn’t just a meaningless gesture by the Tigers. They are seriously interested in the Northern California standout, and the interest is mutual. “I like Clemson a lot,� Mixon said. Clemson is one of about eight schools he’s considering for a visit, and he said distance from home won’t be a factor with him. Mixon has visited Southern Cal and Cal. He Phil has 44 offers, KORNBLUT including ND, Tennessee, Ohio State, UGA, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Michigan and Arizona State along with the Tigers, Trojans and Bears. He won’t announce a decision until the U.S. Army All American Game in January of ‘14. Last season, Mixon rushed for 1,443 yards and 22 touchdowns and had 383 receiving yards and eight TDs. He also had one punt return for a TD and returned an interception for a score. Former UGA commitment RB Stanley Williams of Monroe, Ga., was on hand for USC’s scrimmage and junior day earlier this month, and he was at Clemson’s spring game. “It went really well,� Williams said of his USC visit. “I got a chance to get to know my running back coach, coach (Everette) Sands, and talk to him about what they do there. It was nice talking to him and (head) Coach (Steve) Spurrier.� Williams also has strong interest in Clemson. “I really like (assistant) Coach (Tony) Elliott and Coach Swinney,� said Williams. “They’ve been telling me how I can fit into their offense and what I could do recruiting corner

ight end Kalan Ritchie of Goose Creek High School attended South Carolina’s football scrimmage and junior day earlier this month and continues to have the Gamecocks at the front of his list. He brought his family with him and their interaction with the Gamecock coaches was big to him. “All the coaches got to meet my family, and my mother really likes the school,� Ritchie said. “That’s a big factor. They went more in depth about education and the resources I would have if I went there.� Ritchie also has visited Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee. He plans to visit Kentucky, Louisiana State, Florida, North Carolina State, Alabama and UGA. And he’s not rushing into a final decision. “I’m waiting,� he said. Ritchie holds offers from USC, Clemson, Connecticut, Virginia Tech and NCSU. Defensive lineman Dexter Wideman of Saluda High also was at USC’s junior day, and he was at Clemson’s spring game. “He wanted his grandmother to go to both places,� Saluda head coach Doug Painter said. “He got to get a good feel (at USC), but he’s not there yet. He’s working on his grades so he can do what he wants to do. He’s still pretty wide open. “If I had to guess, I would say he’s a closer-to-home guy. He wants to go (to visit) Florida and LSU and look. And Florida State, I think he wants to go look. It’s just a matter of getting that done.� Wideman has offers from USC, Clemson, Michigan, Florida, Mississippi and FSU. Clemson quarterback commitment Deshaun Watson of Gainesville, Ga., attended the Tigers’ spring game last Saturday. On Friday, he competed in the regional Elite 11 competition in Buford, Ga. While there, he told reporters he remains firmly committed to Clemson, but he does plan to take all five of his official visits. Watson said the other schools he is planning to visit are UGA, Ohio State, Oregon and Auburn. In comments made Friday to ESPN.com, Watson said before he makes visits to other schools, he will make sure his closest advisers and Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris approve. “I talk to my mom and my high school coaches before I check out another school, then I talk to Coach Swinney and

pitchers performing well enough right now. An elbow muscle strain sidelined closer Tyler Webb for last weekend’s series at Florida, and USC won’t know until today if it will have him for the Kentucky series. With Evan Beal and Forrest Koumas enduring even worse seasons than Holmes, whose ERA is 4.39, coach Chad Holbrook is planning on using Holmes to close if

there.â&#x20AC;? He also named Kentucky, Tennessee and Oregon as schools he would like to visit. Williams does not have a time frame for narrowing his list or making a decision. Defensive end Kendal Vickers of Havelock, N.C., got a better feel about where he fits into USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking for a spot in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;13 class during his visit earlier this month. Vickers said last week he needs As and Bs for this half of the school year to have a chance to qualify with his test score. And he said the Gamecocks have told him thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a spot for him if he qualifies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked to all the coaches and they were excited that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be a Gamecock,â&#x20AC;? Vickers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful place. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get down there.â&#x20AC;? Vickers added that USC defensive line coach Deke Adams is scheduled to visit him in about three weeks. Vickers said thru the first nine weeks of this semester, he is sitting on all As and Bs and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident he will made the grade to get to USC this fall. If not, USC will place him in a prep school and he will enroll in January. Offensive lineman Donnell Stanley of Latta High did not make it to USC or Clemson for a spring game. His last trip was to North Carolina for a junior day last month. Ole Miss was his most recent offer, and he talked with Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze and his offensive line coach. He also talked recently with USC OL coach Shawn Elliott and his recruiter from UNC. Stanley remains open and has not formulated a favorites list. LB Deshaun Davis of Mobile, la.,L released his updated top five via Twitter last Saturday, and USC and Clemson are on the list. Davis listed the five favorites in order as Tennessee, FSU, USC, Clemson and LSU. He visited FSU last Saturday. LB Bryson Allen-Williams of Ellenwood, Ga., made a visit to the West Coast earlier this month to check out UCLA and Southern Cal. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been recently to USC and Clemson. Allen-Williams attended the combine in Buford, Ga., and told media there his top three are USC, Alabama and UCLA in that order. He had previously set Aug. 9 for an announcement date, but said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now planning to make his announcement after his spring practice is complete. LB Dillon Bates of Ponte Vedra, Fla., revealed his updated top five on Twitter last Friday. In order, Bates listed Ten-

Webb canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Though Holmes is not out of consideration for weekend starting, Holbrook prefers to use Jack Wynkoop in his No. 3 spot. At this point, Holbrook wants to see if Holmes can find himself while throwing shorter relief stints. He closed Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win over the College of Charleston and allowed two hits and a run in an inning, but Holbrook turned to him just three days after

nessee, Florida, Alabama, Texas and USC. Bates added that he is still open to change. Bates visited USC last season for the UGA game and has talked about getting in this spring. He has visited Tennessee, Miami and Florida. LB Chris Register of Greensboro, N.C., attended a practice at Wake Forest last week and has also been to an NCSU practice. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also interested in Clemson and USC. Though he does not have any favorites, he named Clemson, USC, FSU and Tennessee as schools of interest. QB Jalan McClendon of Charlotte picked up offers from FSU and Appalachian State recently to go with his offers from South Carolina State, WF, UNC and East Carolina. Clemson has yet to offer, but that did not stop McClendon from naming them among his favorites along with FSU and UNC. He plans to attend a camp at Clemson this summer. DL Kwamelle Barnes of Saluda High has yet to receive an offer, but does have a top three of LSU, Florida and UNC. He recently visited LSU. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hearing much right now from USC or Clemson. LSU is expected to evaluate Barnes during spring practice and has Barnes confident an offer could be coming soon. Other schools showing interest include UNC, Florida and Duke. OL Reilly Gibbons of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., committed to Miami. He had offers from USC and Clemson. DE Harold Landry of Fayetteville, N.C., who has offers from Clemson and USC, committed to Boston College. Basketball News: Ibrahim Djambo, a 6-foot-10-inch player from Mali, made his official visit to Clemson over the weekend. He did not commit. Djambo, who attends a junior college in Missouri, also has visited Loyola Chicago and SIU Carbondale. He said he will visit Saint Louis and Southern Mississippi before making his decision, which he will announce on April 30. He does not have a favorite. He averaged 18 points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots per game this season. Sidy Mohamed Djitte, a 6-10 player from Senegal, made his official visit to Clemson this weekend and surprisingly did not commit on the visit. There were indications going into the visit Djitte would make his pledge. He has several other offers, but has not scheduled any other visits.

his 1 2/3-inning start at Florida. Holmes said he will be fresh enough to close tonight. When Holmes struggled this season, his problem was simple: His pitches sailed too high in the strike zone, making them easier to hit. Some pitchers can get away with leaving the ball up, because they have an overpowering fastball or kneebuckling slider. But Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stuff, as coach-

es call it, is just not dominant enough for him to consistently miss his target. Holmes said he must focus on â&#x20AC;&#x153;staying on top of the ball,â&#x20AC;? which means following through over his front leg during his delivery, to force the ball downward as it leaves his hand. This is not the first time Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inconsistent delivery has resulted in his pitches staying up in the zone.

THE ITEM

Is there a challenge for Heat in playoffs? BY BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press Looking for a reason not to pick the Miami Heat to win another NBA title? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t check the odds, where the Heat are such an overwhelming favorite that it might as well be Tiger Woods against a weekend hacker. Definitely donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother with the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results, which show exactly three losses since the start of February. And certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look on the court, where LeBron James sent season-long reminders that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than ever and already the best in the world. The only people who might really believe in caution are the Heat themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be trials and tribulations no matter what, no matter how good of a team you are,â&#x20AC;? Dwyane Wade said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a moment in the playoffs where our back is going to be against the wall. And I think everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done this season will prepare us for that moment. We have a goal, just like every other team that gets into the playoffs, to win a championship. But we understand the

process that it takes.â&#x20AC;? It starts Saturday, when the playoffs start with four first-round games. The Heat will open Sunday against Milwaukee in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to be a quick series. Then it will be up to someone like the Knicks, Thunder, Spurs, or some other contender, to prove that the next two months arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a formality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the best record and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the defending champs so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the team to beat, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much beyond that,â&#x20AC;? Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, give them their due. They

have the best record and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the defending champs, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the team that you need to beat, but no, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anybody is head and shoulders over any. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too many good teams.â&#x20AC;? New York, which won three out of four from Miami, hosts Boston on Saturday in the playoff opener. The Nets welcome Chicago for the first postseason game in Brooklyn, while the Western Conference has Golden State visiting Denver, and the Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies squaring off in a firstround rematch.

TRIBBLE from Page B1 of lives. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be missed in the game and as someone we all looked up to.â&#x20AC;? Before arriving at Clemson, Tribble coached nine seasons at nearby Anderson University, which was then a junior college. She led the Trojans to three junior college national championships and 155 wins. Tribble has been inducted into halls of fame at Clemson and Anderson. She is also a member of the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame and was

honored in 2011 as an ACC Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Legend. On Tuesday, Tribble was presented with the Key to the City of Clemson and a plaque that named the head coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in her honor. Bill Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Andrea, director of the Clemson Lettermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, was a member of the Clemson football staff during Tribbleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure. He presented the awards to Tribble on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Annie Tribble was a pioneer of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletics at Clem-

TITLE from Page B1 got to win and we know it,â&#x20AC;? Wilson Hall head coach Tommy Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all on the line.â&#x20AC;? Jones has yet to decide on who he will start on the mound today. Wilson Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-man rotation consists of Gordon Owens, William Kinney and John Patrick Sears. Owens did pitch two innings in the Baronsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 6-4 loss to Heathwood Hall on Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest games

over the years have been thrown by Sears, so he probably gets the nod,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two other kids who have really performed over the last few weeks, so we kind of go with the hot hand.â&#x20AC;? Sylvester said either Nick Gibbons or Linc Powell should start, but everyone will be available to pitch with the exception of Blake Winans, who threw in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

On Sunday, the Lakers go to San Antonio without Kobe Bryant, and defending West champ Oklahoma City faces former Thunder star James Harden and Houston. Indiana and Atlanta meet in the other East game. Miami went 66-16 and has been so dominant since Super Bowl Sunday that the betting site Bovada gave the Heat opening odds to win the championship that it said were â&#x20AC;&#x153;unheard of in recent yearsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and then already had to lower them when most of the action was coming in on the Heat, anyway.

son,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Andrea said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She did so much for our overall athletic program with the way she represented the department. She was so well respected in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball community. After retirement, she was such a supporter of all of our programs. She will be missed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was very determined, but yet she coached with integrity,â&#x20AC;? Nix said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She approached the game in the right way and gave us all something to model ourselves after, especially as players and coaches. Beyond that, she was just a wonderful woman.â&#x20AC;?

11-2 win over Florence Christian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the boys weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got on our team, we really have a good group of kids,â&#x20AC;? Sylvester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They work hard every day, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to learn, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to make adjustments and they do what we ask. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been kind of businesslike. We go about our business, do what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to do, and we play the game the right way.â&#x20AC;? Jones is hoping for a

high-scoring affair, and if that happens he feels his team will win. The Barons head coach also said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to score first to get an early edge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the statics in baseball there is a pretty high chance the team that scores first goes on to win the baseball game, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been true of our season. When we score well and hit well at the top of the game, we have a real good chance of winning.â&#x20AC;?

FREDERICK A. WILLSON Frederick Arthur Willson peacefully passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, at Beaufort Memorial Hospital in Beaufort. Fred was born on Aug. 10, 1927, in Rumson, N.J., to Charles Augustus Willson and Jenny Clayton Heidt. Our lives were blessed by the 85 full and vibrant years he shared with us. Fred lived his childhood in Rumson and later in Savannah, Ga. After serving in the Navy in World War II, he completed high school, the only member of his family to do so. He went on to earn his bachelor of science in business administration from the University of South Carolina in 1953. Thereafter, Fred established a CPA practice in Sumter. He later purchased and operated The Flower and Gift Shop. These businesses served the community for 40 and 25 years respectively. More important to him, however, was the time spent developing tennis as a lasting sport in the community. Together with his friends, he spent many years promoting and teaching tennis in Sumter. Fred married Nancy Shumate in 1983 in Sumter. They were happily married for 30 years. He was a longtime resident of the Dataw Island community, where he was fondly known as Freddy. There he enjoyed playing tennis, boating and watching his bluebirds hatch each spring. He was the first presi-

dent of the Dataw Island Tennis Association and was famous for his winning shot, the sidewinder. Each October, he loved taking charge of the shrimp boil for the tennis association. His deepest passion was for his family, reveling in holiday gatherings, summers boating and beach vacations. Fred is survived by his wife, Nancy Shumate Willson of Dataw Island; his daughters, Nancy Karen Willson of Richmond, Va. (and husband, Marc Young) and Melanie Willson Hooper of Fairfax, Va. (and husband, Mark Hooper); his grandchildren, Christopher Holdsworth and Daniel and Mitchell Hooper; and his nephew, Ralph Signorelli. Fred was preceded in death by his son, Charles Higgins Willson. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Dataw Island Club, St. Helena Island. Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ashes will be laid to rest next to his son at Sumter Cemetery at a later date.

‘Chasing Ice’ delivers environmental message BY KEVIN MCDONOUGH Is climate change real? Can it be proven? Or is it just a matter of scientific argument? The makers of the 2012 documentary “Chasing Ice” (8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., National Geographic, TV-PG) set out to illustrate the effects of rising temperatures in the most dramatic fashion possible. Naturalist and photographer James Balog fell in love with glaciers. They were a landscape photographer’s dream, presenting dynamic beauty born of geological heft and timeless power. As he continued to document them, he was startled and alarmed to watch glaciers recede year after year at unprecedented speed. Movements, or rather retreats, that once took centuries now transpired in a year or six months. To powerfully convey his concern, he assembled a team to place 25 time-lapse cameras in Iceland, Greenland, Alaska and Montana. The process allows viewers to watch rising temperatures melt the ice and send huge portions of the gla-

ciers tumbling into the sea. “Ice” also gives the National Geographic Channel a chance to return to the kind of programming that folks would like to associate with its long-revered brand. • Mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe sings the songs that Kate Smith made popular during World War II on the “Live From Lincoln Center” presentation of “Celebration: Stephanie Blythe Meets Kate Smith” (9 p.m., PBS, TV-G, check local listings). • Netflix continues its efforts to redefine the television experience by launching original, exclusive programming. What makes it different than HBO or Starz is that rather than “airing” a show one episode at a time, Netflix streams an entire season. Starting today, Netflix makes available all 13 episodes of “Hemlock Grove,” a gothic thriller based on a novel by Brian McGreevy. Look for a “Twin Peaks”-type drama set in a rundown town complete with monsters, bloody murders and the kind of violent shocks and sadistic ultra-gore that executive

producer Eli Roth provided in his films “Cabin Fever,” “Hostel” and “Hostel: Part II.” Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Lili Taylor and Bill Skarsgard star.

Tonight’s Other Highlights • Violet fingers Dixon for assault on “Vegas” (9 p.m., CBS, TV-14). • It’s Nick vs. the volcano on “Grimm” (9 p.m., NBC, TV-PG). • Nicolas Cage stars in the 1983 romantic comedy “Valley Girl” (9:40 p.m., Encore), part of the channel’s weekend-long salute to movies of the 1980s. • Leonardo continues to search for the Book of Leaves even as his efforts as a military contractor suffer a setback on “Da Vinci’s Demons” (9 p.m., Starz, TV-MA).
