City council to consider penny tax projects BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com One week after Sumter County Council met to discuss how to spend a proposed new penny sales tax, it’s now city council’s turn. Sumter City Council will hold a specially called meeting this week on potential projects to be funded over the next seven years by an extended capital sales tax. Council members will

meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday on the first floor of the Sumter Opera House, 21 N. Main St. Before that discussion, council is scheduled to go into an executive session closed McELVEEN to the public to talk about “contractual matters,� according to the agenda released to the media

Break-ins on Miller Road spark more patrolling

last week. City personnel have been studying projects that could be funded by the penny tax if voters approve the measure

in next year’s election. Mayor Joe McElveen said he wants money to go toward projects the city wouldn’t be able to tackle on its own. “Our staff is looking for projects that are bigger than McCORMICK we can handle through general revenue,� McElveen said. City Manager

Deron McCormick led city staff in identifying eligible projects but stressed any final decision on how the tax money will be spent rests with the members of council. “As far as staff goes, we looked for projects that will have a good and positive effect on the community,� said McCormick. “It’s not that we were linking ‘here’s this money, how do we spend it?’ SEE PENNY TAX, PAGE A4

Wreaths Across America

BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com A rash of recent break-ins on Miller Road and North and South Pike West areas off U.S. 76/378 has Sumter Police Department stepping up patrols, hoping to decrease criminal activity in the area. According to police, from Oct. 28 to Dec. 9, there were 26 break-ins or attempted break-ins in the area. Law enforcement is also asking the community to help prevent these incidents from happening by reporting suspicious activity. “Chances are, if you see a pedestrian carrying and trying to sell an electronic item like a television or laptop computer, that item could be stolen,� said the police department. SEE BREAK-INS, PAGE A4

A WARNING FOR SHOPPERS Sumter Police Department is advising shoppers to lock up their vehicles while purchasing gifts in the area to avoid break-ins. As you get your last-minute shopping out of the way, protect your belongings by following these tips: • Park in well-lighted areas and keep packages out of sight. • Hold your purse close to your body or place wallet in front or inside pocket. • Stay alert and have keys in hand when heading to your car. • Make multiple trips home to unload purchases from your vehicle that could attract a thief. Protect your home during the holidays by doing the following: • Keep all windows and doors closed and locked. • Use exterior lighting and motion sensors to light up the house at night to make it more difficult for burglars to enter the home without being seen. • Make sure your alarm system is operating properly. • Don’t announce your new high-dollar purchases after the holidays. Break down the boxes of TVs, stereos, computers, etc. to fit inside of your trash can. If possible, stagger the times that these boxes are placed in the trash.

BREAK-INS from Page A1

PENNY TAX from Page A1

According to Tonyia McGirt, public information officer for the city law enforcement, there isn’t a particular pattern among the reported incidents. However, McGirt said the break-ins have usually occurred during day and electronic items are usually targeted. The police department acknowledges there usually is an increase in break-ins during the holiday season, but the department’s crime data shows a higherthan-normal number of break-ins and attempted break-ins in these neighborhoods. To protect yourself and your property, Sumter Police Department advises taking some of the following steps: engrave all your valuables with identifying initials or numbers; photograph all valuable items in your

but how can we positively leverage these dollars?� The mayor would like to see those dollars leveraged for a new headquarters station for the Sumter fire department to replace the one on the corner of Hampton and Magnolia streets. “We probably don’t have the capacity to bond for that, because of our size,� he said. “It would be fairly expensive.� The city has already acquired property on Lafayette Drive that was intended to be the site of a new public safety building. If built, the building could house many of the city’s emergency response agencies, including fire, police and EMS, McElveen said. “That’s something it’s possible could have an equal im-

home and consider extra insurance on guns and jewelry; store photos on discs in a secure location; become familiar with your neighbors and their vehicles; watch out for suspicious vehicles and if you see a “prowling� car, truck or van in your neighborhood, write down the license number and description of the vehicle and its occupants; and do not give out any information about your home or family over the phone. To report suspicious activity in your neighborhood, call the Sumter Police Department at (803) 436-2700.

pact on (both the city and) the county,� he said. Also under consideration could be a “greenway project� that would connect several parks and recreational sites around town through a walking trail. McElveen touts the success of the previous Penny for Progress, such as the infrastructure improvements that presaged the opening of the new Continental Tire plant, as an example of the benefits a renewed tax can bring. “Everybody from the governor to the Department of Commerce has said that wouldn’t have happened if the city didn’t put in water and sewer there (on U.S. 521),� he said. “I’m not saying every one

of these is going to be a Continental, but you’ve got to think of those when you look at the potential.� If the penny sales tax and its final list of projects is approved in November’s election, it would come into force in 2016 when the current Penny for Progress expires, and continue for eight years until 2023. “This is a tax for a limited amount of time that we get to choose ourselves,� McElveen said. “We just have to find that sweet spot of projects that everybody can be happy with.�

Man jailed in Coastal Carolina shooting faces new charge in death of 44-year-old MYRTLE BEACH — One of the two men accused in the shooting death of a Coastal Carolina University student is now facing charges in a 2012 homicide. The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported 23-year-old Stephon McLain Jr. of Conway was charged Friday with murder in connection with the death of 44-year-old Herbert Deas Jr. Horry County Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick said Deas died Sept. 13,

2012, from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body. McLain has been jailed since March 8 when he was arrested by officers in Mansfield, Ohio, in connection with the Feb. 26 shooting death of Coastal Carolina sophomore Anthony Darnell Liddell. The 19-year-old Liddell was shot to death at University Place near Coastal Carolina, which led to a campus-wide lockdown while police searched for a suspect.

Cannons available for adoption where Civil War began SULLIVANS ISLAND (AP) — A nonprofit group is urging people to lend a hand to help conserve pieces of history: the guns at the South Carolina forts where the Civil War began. Jim Thompson of the Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Trust said Friday that the group has started an Adopt-A-Cannon drive to help the National Park Service conserve the guns at Sumter, which is in Charleston Harbor, and at Moultrie, on nearby Sullivans Island. The trust assists the National Park Service in its work by helping with education, preservation and staging commemorations. “This will appeal to people who have the history bug like I do,� Thompson said. “People love stories, and when people come in and touch the guns when they are conserved, they’ll say that’s great, I want to be part of the next one,� he said. The group has a goal of $30,000, but Thompson said the group would really like to raise $50,000. That money would help conserve a total of nine guns in a year’s time. Earlier this year, the park service finished conserving 10 large siege and garrison guns, some of which were used by Confederates to lob shells from Moultrie into Sumter in Charleston Harbor in 1861 when the war erupted. Union forces surrendered 34 hours after the bombardment started as the nation plunged into a bloody war. That conservation work was done under a

Learn more about adopting a cannon at fortsumtertrust.org. multiyear, $900,000 agreement between the National Park Service and the Clemson University Restoration Institute. But help is now needed for remaining guns. Conservators were busy at Moultrie on Friday using a new hightech method of conserving guns. The method uses water heated to about 300 degrees sprayed at high pressure — 3,000 pounds

per square inch, or about twice the pressure of a commercial pressure washer — to peel off layers of paint applied to the barrels over the years. Liisa Nasanen, a conservator from the Clemson institute, was using the method on a gun dating to 1830. She said about 12 coats of paint had been applied over the years. Before the new method, gun barrels would have to be lifted by a crane and taken offsite to be sandblasted. Now the conservation can be done on site. The machine is the

only one being used in the United States, said Rick Dorrance, chief of resource management at the Fort Sumter National Monument. “It’s been used extensively in Great Britain, but it hasn’t made its way

over here. We were able to get one of these units,� he said. “The goal is to re-

move most of the paint coatings and some of the corrosion.�

Developments promising for treating breast cancer

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This computer drawing provided by Blue North Fisheries shows a new 191-foot commercial fishing boat design. The boat is intended to be safer for workers by positioning fishermen behind the protection of the boat’s hull instead of up on deck, and long-lines of fish will be pulled from under the boat through an opening in the bottom-center of the boat.

Boat could make fishing safer on deadly Bering Sea ANACORTES, Wash. (AP) — Few professions are as deadly as commercial fishing on the Bering Sea. Crews face rogue waves and frigid gales that toss around heavy machines and cause vessels to pitch, yaw and roll on turbulent waters. The dangers are so constant that they’ve been made lore on the longrunning cable show “Deadliest Catch.” Over the years, efforts to keep crew members safe have taken many forms, from changing the culture among fishermen to equipping them with emergency gear such as survival suits that can help them survive the icy waters longer. The latest proposed solution is being built in a dry dock north of Seattle: a $35 million, 190foot vessel that would

enable fishermen to work behind the safety of the hull, rather than out on the deck amid the dangerous wind and waves. The ship, commissioned by Seattle-based Blue North Fisheries, represents the culmination of efforts to keep fishermen safe, said Chris Phillips, managing editor of Fishermen’s News, an industry publication. “If he’s out there standing in the elements in 15-degree weather and 15-foot waves crashing on the deck, he’s not very happy,” Phillips said. “But if he’s in a well-lit and heated space, he’s a lot happier.” According to federal statistics, 32 fishermen died on the job in 2012, a drop from 42 the year before. Still, the profession remains one of the nation’s deadliest with a 2012 fatality rate of 117

per 100,000 workers, compared to 17 for construction crews. Jennifer Lincoln, an injury epidemiologist with the National Institute for Occupational Safety Health, said the vessel’s design represents an attempt to avoid the hazards completely. “It’s a big deal to engineer out the occupational hazard from the beginning,” she said. Currently, a crew member is at risk while the long-line is being reeled in. Usually a crew member has to hook the fish being reeled in to process them. That requires standing out on the deck. And sometimes crew members get tossed into the water. In Alaska, for example, 158 fishermen died between 2000 and 2012; 49 of those fatalities were crew getting tossed overboard, Lincoln said.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A novel way to speed the testing of cancer drugs and quickly separate winners from duds has yielded its first big result: an experimental medicine that shows promise against a hard-to-treat form of breast cancer. The method involves studying drugs in small groups of people and using advanced statistical techniques to analyze the results as they come in, instead of waiting for all the data to arrive. Whether the drug, veliparib, ever makes it to market remains to be seen, but it has shown enough potential to advance to final-phase testing aimed at Food and Drug Administration approval. Bringing a new cancer drug to market usually takes more than a decade and tests in thousands of patients, and costs more than $1 billion. Companies can’t afford many studies like that, and patients can’t wait years

for potentially life-saving new medicines, said Don Berry, a biostatistician at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He helped design the novel analytical method discussed Friday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, an international conference. Researchers testing a drug usually don’t see results until they’re all in, to prevent biasing the study. But several years ago, an unusual partnership decided to try a new way. It involves the National Cancer Institute, the FDA, drug companies, dozens of cancer research centers and charitable foundations. The study, called I-SPY 2, puts small groups of women on experimental drugs or combinations, then gives them surgery to see what effect the medicines had. The best result is a complete response, where no signs of cancer remain.

‘A Christmas Story’ at 30: Now part of the family CLEVELAND (AP) — Even after three decades, the triple-dog dare doesn’t get old. The film “A Christmas Story� opened 30 years ago to mixed reviews but has shown its staying power as a holiday family favorite. Cleveland, where parts of the movie were filmed and hardluck Ralphie dreamed big, recently celebrated the anniversary with iconic leg lamps, holiday store windows such as the ones that drew Ralphie’s wide-eyed stares and stage and musical versions of “A Christmas Story.� “It becomes part of your fabric for your whole life,� said Kevin Moore, managing director of the Cleveland Play House, where the stage version of the story has become a holiday staple. In the film, starring Darren McGavin as the father, 9-year-old Ralphie was transfixed by the brightly decorated storefront windows. And he dreamed of getting an air rifle as a Christmas gift, despite warnings that he might shoot his eye out. The plot follows his determined gift-begging, his encounters with bullies and his family’s daily hopes and dreams — including a lamp in the form of a shapely leg. The movie wasn’t widely acclaimed when it debuted, with favorable reviews barely outnumbering bad mentions like the one that grumped, “Bah, humbug� in the headline. But its quirky humor and love-in-family message struck a chord with audiences. Like any holiday favorite, a sense of wonder is needed for “A Christmas Story,� and 8-yearold Colin Wheeler thinks he has one to match Ralphie’s.

Visitors wait to tour the house Nov. 21 in Cleveland where much of the 1983 movie “A Christmas Story� was filmed. The house and adjacent museum expected an influx of visitors on the 30th anniversary of the quirky holiday film turned classic in the city where Ralphie’s house was restored on a bluff overlooking the steel mills. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“We both have really big imaginations,� boasted Colin, who plays Ralphie in “A Christmas Story� musical at Cleveland’s Near West Theater. It’s not easy playing Ralphie in that ill-fitting pink bunny suit, Colin said. “I’ll tell you one thing that’s hard: it’s really hard not to laugh� while

wearing that suit, Colin said. The appeal in Ralphie’s blue-collar hometown is simple, Moore said. “It’s just a really quirky and yet incredibly sweet story, and that resonates with Cleveland,� he said. The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland has been decorated for the season

to highlight the film’s roots in the department store now housing the

casino, with leg lamps atop some of the slot machines. At “A Christmas Story� house overlooking humming steel mills, visitors can re-enact movie scenes including ducking under the 1940s-style kitchen sink or looking out the back door where Ralphie trudged through the faux snow. The movie “snow� was actually mostly firefighting foam, pressed into service amid a cold but rare snowless stretch during filming in winterhardy Cleveland.

Jim Moralevitz, now 73, lives down the street from “A Christmas Story� house and landed a cameo role in the film helping deliver the crate carrying the leg lamp. The entrepreneur who developed the house as a tourist attraction, Brian Jones, gave Moralevitz a leg lamp seven years ago, and it’s mounted in a 6-foot outdoor Plexiglas box near the peak of the front roof. People sometimes mistake it for “A Christmas Story� house and stop to visit. In the neighborhood, “I’m known for the most drive-by shootings (filming),� said Moralevitz, a retired tour guide stepping back into his old role for comic effect. Like many of the best holiday classics, the risky business turns cheerful at the end. Now families get together at holiday gatherings to watch the movie or crowd theater performances. “It fills up the seats because it’s a family experience,� Moore said.

Astronaut may get Christmas wish for spacewalk CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Space station astronaut Rick Mastracchio may get his Christmas wish for a spacewalk or two because of a broken cooling system. Mastracchio, an experienced spacewalker, said he’s more than ready to go out and make repairs, if deemed necessary by Mission Control. “Any time you have something like this, it’s good news, bad news,” Mastracchio told The Associated Press on Friday. “Of course, the bad news is the station’s having problems, and we have to go out and do a repair. The good news is we have the spare parts. We have the training. We have the skills and, of course, going out and doing a spacewalk is always very exciting — yet very challenging.” One of two cooling loops on the space station shut down Wednesday after it got too cold. Flight controllers suspect a bad valve inside an external pump. It’s a serious situation that needs to be remedied quickly, officials said, in case there are additional failures. On Friday, engineers in Houston spent a third day working on the issue. They want to see if they can solve the problem remotely, before ordering up a series of spacewalks to replace

the entire pump. Three spacewalks were required to install this pump in 2010. The space station cooling system uses ammonia to dissipate heat generated by on-board equipment. The six astronauts have turned off all nonessential equipment to reduce the heat load, including some science experiments. That’s resulted in extra free time for Mastracchio and his U.S., Japanese and Russian crewmates. Otherwise, life has not changed much a couple hundred miles up, he noted. “We still have lights. We still have the toilet working. We still have food, and we’re still very comfortable up here,” Mastracchio said. “So the biggest problem is that we’re just not taking the time during our schedule to do as much science as we normally would.” An upcoming delivery mission may be delayed because of the cooling system trouble. The commercial Cygnus capsule, currently scheduled for a Wednesday launch from Wallops Island, Va., almost certainly holds holiday surprises for the astronauts, along with the usual stash of supplies. At least Mastracchio doesn’t have to cram in any last-minute Christmas shopping, using the space station’s Internet

The 53-year-old engineer said he bought presents for his wife before he rocketed into orbit at the beginning of November for a sixmonth mission. “Being away from your friends and family during the holidays is not optimal,” he told the AP. “But if you have to be away from your family on Christmas, then this is sure not a bad place to be.” And children, stay tuned. “We’re always on the lookout for Santa up here,” Mastracchio said with a smile.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how area members of Congress voted on major issues in the week ending Dec. 13. HOUSE TWO-YEAR BUDGET DEAL: Voting 332 for and 94 against, the House on Dec. 12 approved a two-year budget deal that would enable Congress to operate through September 2015 without real or threatened government shutdowns or lurches from one stopgap budget to the next. The measure (HJ Res 59) would soften the impact of sequestration on defense readiness and critical domestic programs; raise a variety of taxes and fees by $7 billion during 10 years; reduce deficit spending by $23 billion during 10 years; slightly raise discretionary spending to an average of $1.013 trillion per year in fiscal 2014-2015; and avert cuts in Medicare payments to doctors. Among its revenue provisions, the bill would raise pension contributions by newly hired federal employees; trim certain payments to Medicare providers; raise airline ticket fees; curb cost-of-living increases for military pensioners holding civilian jobs; increase fees paid by corporations to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.; and require states to pay a larger share of the cost of managing mineral leases on federal land. No member spoke against the bill.

EXTENDED JOBLESS BENEFITS: On a procedural vote of 227 for and 195 against, the House on Dec. 12 blocked a bid by Democrats for a direct vote on their amendment to provide three more months of unemployment checks for 1.3 million of the long-term jobless whose current allotment of extended benefits will expire Dec. 28. Democrats forced this vote after the Republican leadership refused to include the extension in a two-year budget agreement (HJ Res 59, above). The $6 billion cost of the extended benefits was to have been offset by cuts in farm subsidies. Rob Woodall, R-Ga., said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those basic unemployment benefits that your state has guaranteed to you, nothing is happening to those, and folks need to know that. Those (basic) weeks of unemployment that the federal government has always provided, nothing is happening to those, and folks need to know that. What we are talking about are those emergency benefits.â&#x20AC;?

2014 MILITARY BUDGET: Voting 350 for and 69 against, the House on Dec. 12 approved a bill (HR 3304) to authorize a $625.1 billion military budget for fiscal 2014, including $80.7 billion for actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and other war zones; up to $60 billion for active duty and retirement health care; $17.8 billion for nuclear-weapons programs run by the Department of Energy; $10 billion for the U.S. Special Operations Command; and $9.3 billion for space- and landbased missile defenses. The bill funds a 1 percent military pay raise, bars higher copayments or enrollment fees in the military health care system and sets active duty end-strengths of 520,000 for the Army, 327,600 for the Air Force, 323,600 for the Navy and 190,200 for the Marine Corps.

In reference to the Nativity removal As a Christian, this has bothered me on several levels. Our country was founded by people who were fleeing religious persecution, our government buildings recognize God as our Heavenly Father, our currency has “In God We Trust.” Now, there are those who would like for us to rid ourselves of all things “Christian?” I was interested to know who these people were, so I went to their web site: “The Military Religious Freedom Foundation.” They state that their foundation “is dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantee of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled by virtue of the Establishment clause of the first Amendment.” That sounds fine, but my question is what freedom has been denied anyone? No one has insisted that anyone be of their religion. The Nativity scene is something that stands for the birth of our Savior. Christmas is the celebration of His birth. It is our religious freedom to worship as we please. I don’t understand why others would deny us our religious freedom.

And in case anyone has forgotten what the first Amendment actually says, it states (as regarding religion): “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...” If Congress is not allowed to “prohibit the free exercise thereof,” I don’t understand how The Military Religious Freedom Foundation can. Most everyone that I know of respects those of other religions and their right to worship as they please. I would just like for someone to explain to me how “Christian” beliefs seem to fall into the “politically incorrect” category these days. CAROLYN HUGGINS Sumter

WREATHS from Page A1 Air Patrol, said 2nd Lt. Janelle Buniel, who led the event. Each year’s wreath-laying has gotten more attention as the national event has become better known. “It’s not just the squadron,” Buniel said. “We have Girl Scouts and family members here to help.” Three Girl Scouts from Troop 1015 in West Columbia made the trip to Sumter to take part in the ceremony. “We’ve done this for two or three years, and I saw on their website they didn’t have as many people here as the one at Fort Jackson,” said Scout Ambassador Jennifer Prochaska, 16. “We thought it was a good time to honor as many veterans as we could.” Before the cadets and scouts set off to tie wreaths along the fence, they placed seven wreaths in front of the main flag pole at the cemetery, representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and the POW/ MIA, then presented them with a salute. At many Wreaths Across America events, it’s become the custom to lay a wreath on the grave

of each veteran buried in a cemetery, but Sumter’s organizers don’t have the resources for that. “There are over a thousand veterans here,” Buniel said. “If we tried to lay one on each grave stone, there’s no way we could cover them all.” It was the smaller scale of Sumter’s event that attracted the Girl Scouts, who wanted to take part where they could be of more help. Prochaska, along with fellow Scouts Tatiana Busby and Josie Watford, said they wanted to come back again next year after they hope to hold a fundraiser to collect more wreaths.

FSU’s Winston wins Heisman BY RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press NEW YORK — Jameis Winston left voters no choice but to give him the Heisman Trophy. The Florida State quarterback became the second straight freshman to win the Heisman on Saturday night, earning college football’s most prestigious individual award with a performance so spectacular

and dominant that even a criminal investigation couldn’t derail his candidacy.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“I cannot explain the feeling that I have inside right now,’’ Winston said. “I’m so overwhelmed. It’s awesome.’’ When his name was announced, he popped from his seat and quickly made his way to his mom and dad for hugs and kisses. He smiled and laughed through most of his acceptance speech, but got a little

SHS’ Wright has solid game in South’s 38-21 loss

Sumter sweeps Gators

BY NEILL KIRKPATRICK Special to The Item MYRTLE BEACH — Sumter High School defensive back Erick Wright came into Saturday’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl expecting to play well in the matchup of NorthSouth AllStars. He did not disappoint as he broke up three passes and recorded three tackles in the South’s 38-21 loss to the North. “I play how I practice, hard” Wright said. “My coaches at Sumter taught me the right way to do things and try to do that every day.” He also came oh so close to having a pick six in the second quarter. On second down and 10 yards to go, he broke

Vandevander gets best of Fields in matchup of teacher vs. student BY EDDIE LITAKER Special To The Item It was a classic teacher versus pupil matchup Saturday at Lakewood High School’s The Swamp, and Round 1 went to the teacher. New Lakewood varsity girls basketball head coach Frances Fields, a 2007 Sumter High School graduate, led her Lady Gators squad against her alma mater — and her former coach at Alice Drive VANDEVANDER Middle School, Chris Vandevander — for the first time, with the Lady Gamecocks coming out on top by a score of 5435. While Fields had coached against Sumter FIELDS as a junior varsity head coach and a varsity assistant before, this was her first time as varsity head coach. “Sumter is a very good team. They’ve got good size, good guards, and it was just a good opportunity for Lakewood to see where we are at,” said Fields, whose team stands at 4-2 after the loss. “Compared to them we are pretty small, so the first quarter we matched up well with SEE SWEEPS, PAGE B2

I would have liked to have had the interception,” said a smiling Wright after the game. “It was a great week. It was really awesome to see all these great players come together in a week and become a team.” The game was one of turnovers as 31 of the North’s points came off the South’s miscues. The North jumped out to a 17-0 first-half lead when, after recovering two South fumbles, York’s Ryan Moore scored from SEE WRIGHT, PAGE B2

Clemson rolls past Furman 71-35 BY AARON BRENNER Post and Courier CLEMSON — The measuring sticks get much higher at the start of the new calendar year, but it’s hard for Clemson men’s basketball to be more encouraged by its calling card than it is through 10 games. With their 71-35 dusting of Furman Saturday night, the Tigers

flexed their muscles on defense once again, allowing the program’s fewest points in nearly 18 years. The Tigers (8-2) entered the weekend with the best statistical defense in the country at 53.6 points BROWNELL per game and .350 field-goal percentage allowed. Both figures dropped a little more

Saturday, with the Paladins (4-6) — averaging 69.2 points a game beforehand — producing 35 points on 30.2 percent shooting. “Really pleased with the way our guys defended for the whole 40 minutes,” head coach Brad Brownell said. “Showed very good defensive discipline, to stay focus and guard for that long.” SEE TIGERS, PAGE B5

SWEEPS from Page B1 them (trailing 11-9 after one) and then they lost sight a little bit after that, but it was a pretty good game to see where we are at.” Vandevander, in her sixth season as SHS head coach and also a former Lady Gamecock standout, has fond memories of her time coaching Fields at the middle school level. “I coached Frances my first year back in Sumter after coming back from college,” Vandevander said. “She was a seventh-grader at Alice Drive Middle School and I had her on my first team. Then she and I both made the move to Sumter High (with her) as an eighth-grader, but she went straight on to varsity and I took over the JV program. So we’ve been together for a while. It’s nice to see her out here doing this, because she’s really got an IQ for the game and understands the game.” Vandevander said coaching against a former player is a new experience for her as well. “This was the first time for me, and it’s exciting,” she said. “You hope you can still maybe beat your pupil, but she’s got the girls working hard. They played with a lot of passion, so I’m proud of her, too.” Fields also enjoyed matching up against her former coach, and she was already looking ahead to the next meeting on Friday, when the Lady Gators head over to Sumter High for Round 2. “Coach V is a very good coach,” Fields said. “She’s got a good squad and it was a good matchup. Hopefully it will be a better game next Friday.” The final score was not indicative of the game’s competitiveness as Sumter led by nine, 37-28, with 6:13 left and by 11, 4433, after a Sonora Dengokl 3-point basket with 3:38 left. A 10-2 Lady Gamecock run to close the game inflated the final victory margin. Three players scored in double figures for Sumter, which improved to 2-2 heading into a road game on Tuesday at Lower Richland. Christian Hithe led the way with 17 while Cy Cooper added 13 and Jessica Harris closed with 10. Dengokl topped Lakewood with 13 points.

The Gators pulled within 20 after Jalen White hit a basket to open the second half, but Lakewood could not get any closer. The Gamecocks outscored the Gators 16-4 in the final quarter, with the final score representing Sumter’s largest lead of the night. While new Sumter head coach Jo Jo English is happy to see his team 4-0 at this point, he knows there is room for improvement. “We’ve still got a long way to go,” English said. “Our guys are not happy or satisfied at all. They know that they can be much better than what they are. People think that they are playing good and stuff like that, and they are playing well, but we’ve got so much more growth in ourselves as a basketball team.” Lakewood head coach Terrence Scriven said Sumter did a good job on defense of taking starting guard Jarvis Johnson out of the game. “That was a good game plan by coach (English),” said Scriven, whose team dropped to 6-3. “He took our guard out of the game, and I don’t think our guys had seen that type of pressure in the eight games we have played. We’ve been playing against a lot of zone and a lot of full-court pressure, but nothing to that extent. They just got out to a big lead and we couldn’t recover, but we’ll get better.” Sumter had 11 players break into the scoring column, led by Butler and Brandon Parker with 10 apiece. White and Robert Grant both finished with six to pace Lakewood.

Texas’ Brown steps down BY JIM VERTUNO The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — Mack Brown, the Texas football coach who led the Longhorns to the 2005 national title and ranks second at the school in career victories, is stepping down after 16 seasons. In a statement released by the school Saturday night, the coach who was brought to Texas to revive a dormant program in 1997 acknowledged it was time for a change after a 30-20 record, including 18-17 in the Big 12,

over the last four seasons. Texas went 8-4 this season and lost the Big 12 title to Baylor in the final game of the regular season. The 62-year-old Brown will finish his Texas career in the Alamo Bowl against Oregon on Dec. 30. “It’s been a wonderful ride. Now, the program is again being pulled in different directions, and I think the time is right for a change,’’ Brown said. “I love the University of Texas, all of its supporters, the great fans and everyone that played

and coached here ... It is the best coaching job and the premier football program in America. “I sincerely want to get back to the top and that’s why I’m stepping down after the bowl game. I hope with some new energy, we can get this thing rolling again,’’ Brown said. Brown led the Longhorns through a run of dominance from 2001-2009 when the Texas went 101-16, won two Big 12 titles and twice played for the national championship.

Coastal Carolina (12-3) entered the game averaging 43 points and 491 yards of offense. Christian Dudzik had two interceptions for the Bison. It was clear from the start Bohl’s imminent departure would not affect the senior-laden Bison. NDSU had a 219-29 edge in total yards and led 17-0 after the first quarter. The Bison led 31-0 before Lorenzo Taliaferro’s

ry, despite being left off 115 of the 900 ballots that were returned. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch was third, followed by Boston College’s Andre Williams, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and Auburn’s Tre Mason. Manziel was the first freshman to win the Heisman, and was trying to join Ohio State’s Archie Griffin as a two-time winner. Instead, Winston made it two freshman winners in the 79-year history of the Heisman. He also became the youngest winner at 23 days short of 20. The 19-year-old also

3-yard touchdown run with 2:13 remaining in the second quarter got the Chanticleers on the board. “We knew they had a good defense, we knew they were the No. 1-ranked defense,’’ Coastal Carolina quarterback Alex Ross said. “We knew we would have to come out hot, playing hot, and we didn’t do that.’’ Ojuri’s 73-yard touchdown run with 6:16 left in the first quarter gave NDSU a 10-0 lead. The Bison scored on three of their next four drives, including two TD runs by Jensen and one by Ojuri, for a 31-0 lead. After Taliaferro’s score, NDSU went 29 yards in three plays to set up Adam Keller’s 48-yard field goal as the half ended. The Bison had a 349-111 advantage in total yards at halftime. Coastal Carolina lost 70-10 to South Carolina, the eighthranked team in the Football Bowl Subdivision, earlier this season. Chanticleers coach Joe Moglia said the Bison compare favorably to the Gamecocks. “I think South Carolina would beat them, but I think they’d give South Carolina a game,’’ Moglia said.

was investigated last month for a year-old sexual assault complaint, but no charges were filed and the case was closed four days before Heisman votes were due. “People trusted me and saw us play,’’ Winston said. Winston is the nation’s top-rated passer and has led the top-ranked Seminoles to a spot in the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn on Jan. 6, his birthday. The former five-star recruit from Bessemer, Ala., made college football look easy from his very first game. On Labor Day night, on national televi-

sion, Winston went 25 for 27 for 356 yards and four touchdowns in a victory at Pittsburgh. It was a brilliant debut that lived up to the offseason hype, when Winston wowed Florida State fans in the Seminoles’ spring football game and on the baseball diamond as a hard-throwing reliever and clutch-hitting outfielder. He had already earned the nickname Famous Jameis before he ever played a college football game. And he quickly became one of the most beloved Seminoles since Charlie Ward, the 1993 Heisman

It’s rarely difficult to fill Death Valley with 80,000 football fans on gameday. Getting 17,500 to support Clemson directly for a BCS bowl in Florida is a different challenge. Many Clemson fans descending on Miami for the 12thranked Tigers’ Orange Bowl game against No. 7 Ohio State will seek alternative methods for getting through the gates at Sun Life Stadium, which is why Clemson University sprang into action to protect its own financial burden. Most college football bowls require schools to sell their allotted number of game tickets, and eat the cost of any unsold. Clemson is tasked with selling 17,500 tickets for the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3, while South Carolina must distribute 12,500 tickets for its Capital One Bowl matchup against Wisconsin on New Year’s Day. The allotment represents a fraction of both teams’ fan bases. With secondary markets like StubHub.com and FrontRowTickets. com offering cheaper tickets, it can often feel like a losing battle. THE CLEMSON SIDE

Clemson fans can find upper-deck tickets to the Orange Bowl

winner. Winston is the third Seminoles quarterback to win the award, along with Chris Weinke in 2000. Winston and Florida State were cruising toward an undefeated season when news broke of an unresolved sexual assault complaint against him made to the Tallahassee Police Department last December. The dormant case was handed over to the state attorney’s office for a full investigation. A female student at Florida State accused Winston of rape. Winston’s attorney said

for around $60 on StubHub.com. USC fans who don’t mind sitting high above the field can purchase Capital One Bowl tickets on the website for as low as $53. Both are cheaper than if fans go through the school. Plus, better seats are reasonably easy to obtain through second-hand avenues. “Right now, the Orange Bowl is on pace to outsell last year’s Orange Bowl,” StubHub communications coordinator Cameron Papp said. “I think that’s because of the two teams involved, since Ohio State and Clemson historically have fan bases that travel well.” THE USC SIDE

South Carolina opened its ticket sales last week offering Gamecock Club members reserved seats for $92. The school made Capital One Bowl tickets available to the public on Thursday. Lance Grantham, South Carolina’s assistant athletics director for tickets, acknowledged the struggle of competing with secondary markets during the bowl season. South Carolina has sold about 7,000 tickets, including 3,300 last week, Grantham told The Post and Courier on Friday. The school has distributed about 8,500. Grantham said ticket sales are about 1,000 ahead of the pace set in 2012.

the sex was consensual. During three weeks of uncertainty, Winston continued to play sensationally, especially in Florida State’s big games against Clemson and Miami, while other contenders stumbled or failed to distinguish themselves. If voters were looking to Manziel or McCarron or Lynch or Williams or even Marcus Mariota of Oregon to give them a good alternative to Winston, it didn’t happen. Mason made a late surge and ended up in New York because of the lack of serious challengers to Winston.

Cincinnati focused on Steelers, not AFC North BY WILL GRAVES The Associated Press

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan talked with brother Rob, the defensive coordinator for New Orleans, about ways to approach today’s game against Carolina. The Saints defeated the Panthers 31-13 last week.

Ryan looks for help vs. Panthers BY STEVE REED The Associated Press CHARLOTTE — Rex Ryan ain’t too proud to beg — or at least ask nicely to borrow. The Jets coach said this week he’s talked at length to his brother Rob, defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, about slowing down multitalented quarterback Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers offense today. Rob Ryan’s Saints REX RYAN limited Carolina to two field goals through three quarters in a 31-13 win over the Panthers last Sunday night. Rex Ryan at first ROB RYAN tried to act coy about the open collusion with Rob, but quickly laughed and admitted he’d spent a good deal of time talking with Rob this week in advance of facing the Panthers. “Oh yeah, without question I’ve already talked to him,’’ Rex Ryan said. “Our defenses are two different defenses — he has his own style, so do we. But again, without question I’ve already talked to him about the things he picked up.’’ Panthers coach Ron Rivera, who coached under the brothers’

father, Buddy Ryan, said he’s not all that concerned about the conspiring siblings. “I don’t necessarily take a lot of stock in talking to a lot people throughout the league,’’ Rivera said. “Whether he has something from his brother, that’s great. I know Rex and Rob, and Rex is going to do what he does, I will tell you that.’’ The Panthers (9-4) can clinch a playoff spot Sunday with a win over the Jets combined with losses by San Francisco and Arizona, and a loss or tie by either Philadelphia or Dallas. However, if Carolina loses Sunday and Arizona wins, the Panthers are suddenly on the outside looking in at the playoffs despite their record. New York’s (6-7) situation is more uncertain. The Jets are a game behind Baltimore and Miami in the race for the final wild-card spot in the AFC and a loss would likely seal their fate. Five things to watch for today between the Jets and Panthers: GOOD GENO, BAD GENO

Last Sunday, Good Geno got his first TD pass since Oct. 20 against New England and just his second in eight games, and also ran for a TD. It was his best game in almost two months, and the Jets put up a season-high 37 points. On the flip side, Bad Geno is

quite capable of running the Jets playoff hopes — he has thrown 20 interceptions this season. GRUNT YARDAGER

Yards won’t be easy to come by on the ground as this game features the league’s top two run defenses. The Jets had an uncharacteristically bad performance against the run on Sunday, allowing the Raiders to roll up 150 yards, including 123 by fullback Marcel Reece. It caused New York to fall to No. 2 against the run, one spot behind linebacker Luke Kuechly and the Panthers. COMARTIE CONCERN

The Jets aren’t sure if they will have top cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who has a concussion. If Cromartie can’t go it’s unsure if they have anyone who could effectively cover Carolina wide receiver Steve Smith. WAKEUP CALL

The Panthers had allowed just 13.7 points per game this season before giving up 31 to the Saints last week. It will be interesting to see how the defense responds a week after getting torched by Drew Brees. RED ZONE BLUES

The Panthers know they have to get back to scoring touchdowns in the red zone rather than settling for field goals as they did last week against the Saints.

Packers’ backup plan may not be good for Cowboys las franchise leader in 300-yard games, has gone four straight without reaching 250 yards passing. He had 104 against Chicago, the fewest in a full game in his career. Part of it was an effective running game, and part of it was a defense that couldn’t get Chicago off the field.

BY SCHUYLER DIXON The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas — Matt Flynn is the backup trying to keep Green Bay in playoff contention until the franchise quarterback returns. If he fills in for Aaron Rodgers again today at Dallas, the Packers will be using a formula that just worked pretty well against the Cowboys. Dallas (7-6) is out of first place in the NFC East and in danger of losing control of its postseason fate because Chicago backup Josh McCown, filling in for Jay Cutler, had four touchdown passes and ran for another score in a 45-28 win Monday night. The Packers (6-6-1) are still alive in the NFC North, a half-game behind the Bears and Detroit, after Flynn directed three second-half drives to points in a 22-21 comeback victory over Atlanta. It was Green Bay’s first win since Rodgers broke his left collarbone early in a loss to the Bears on Nov. 4. “To have a win like that, hopefully it gives you a little momentum,’’

DEFENSIVE MOMENTUM

While the Cowboys are trying to forget their last defensive game, the Packers wouldn’t mind repeating theirs. They’ve cleaned up their problem with missed tackles and started forcing turnovers again. The run defense regained its early-season form against Atlanta. ON THE RUN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

With franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers sill sidelined with an injury, Green Bay is hoping backup Matt Flynn (10) can take advantage of a porous Dallas defense today in Arlington, Texas.

said Flynn, who made his second start after rejoining the Packers as a free agent following the Rodgers injury. “Hopefully it gives you an extra little bit of juice in your step at practice and helps you prepare a little bit better.’’ The job for the Cowboys is putting another brutal defensive game behind them. Dallas

PITTSBURGH — It seems borderline surreal, a role reversal as stunning as it is definitive. A year ago, the Cincinnati Bengals came to Heinz Field in December and emerged with a 13-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. That propelled Cincinnati to a second straight postseason berth and sent its longtime nemesis into a downward spiral from which it is still trying to recover. “I think (it was big),’’ Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green said. “The Steelers had our number every year, even when I first got here.’’ Not anymore. Not by a long shot. If anything, the gap between the two franchises has only widened over the last 12 months. Cincinnati (9-4) can assure itself a third consecutive trip to the playoffs in Sunday night’s rematch. The Steelers (5-8) need to win out

just to avoid the club’s first losing season in a decade. Welcome to the new AFC North, the one where the balance of power is 60 minutes away from sitting well west of Pittsburgh and Baltimore — at a place that has spent most of the last two decades serving as fodder for the rest of the league. Those days are over. The Bengals, not the Steelers, are the ones with the young and athletic defense. The Bengals, not the Steelers, are the ones with the dynamic running game. The Bengals, not the Steelers, are the ones with the swagger of a champion. What better chance to show the world just how far they’ve come than on national television? “There’s going to be more people watching,’’ quarterback Andy Dalton said. “We have to put our best foot forward and be playing our best, show everyone what this team is and what we’re made of.’’

gave up a franchise-record 625 yards in a 49-17 loss at New Orleans before the bye week, and bounced back with consecutive wins to get two games over .500 for the first time this season. Some things to consider for today’s matchup: ROMO AND COMPANY

Tony Romo, the Dal-

The Cowboys lost for the first time when DeMarco Murray had a 100-yard rushing game. He had 99 yards at halftime against the Bears and finished with 146, the third-best total of his career. He needs 157 yards in the last three games for his first 1,000yard season. Eddie Lacy set a Packers rookie record with his seventh TD rushing against the Falcons, but he wasn’t expected to practice before Friday because of an ankle injury.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton (14) and the Bengals are focused solely on beating Pittsburgh, not capturing the AFC North title.

This was the first time Clemson doubled up an opponent since a 79-39 win over Liberty on Nov. 17, 2009, the year before Brownellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival. In Brownellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three years, the Tigers held three opponents to 40 points or less. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done so three times in 10 games this season. Furmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading two guards, Stephen Croone and Larry Wideman, were a combined 4-for-19 shooting from the floor; Wideman, who averages 14 points per game, did not score. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think are guys are more experienced and we have better positioning,â&#x20AC;? sophomore guard Jordan Roper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonight, one of the major things we wanted to emphasize was deflections, because the past few games, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been getting that many deflections. We wanted to get steals, blocks and tipped passes, just have more activity defensively.â&#x20AC;? Mission accomplished. Nine steals, nine blocks, just the second time this year the Tigers had at least nine of each. It actually was a tight game late in the first half, with Clemson clutching a 21-17 lead before the home team registered a 17-0 run over a nearly seven-minute span to put it out of reach. Roper scored a season-high 16 points in his first start since Nov. 13, while McDaniels and Devin Coleman each had 12 points. McDaniels added four blocks, while Landry Nnoko grabbed 11 rebounds and Sidy Djitte hauled in 10 boards.

Reynolds, Navy run to 34-7 win over Army

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A message reading “people over profit” is written on an electrical panel at an intersection in the Mechanicsville neighborhood in Atlanta surrounding the Atlanta Braves stadium. For the Braves, abandoning downtown Atlanta for the suburbs means moving closer to the team’s fan base and developing money-making restaurants and amenities. But the decision also highlights long-standing disparities over wealth, where people live and even transportation, all facets of life connected to race and social class in Atlanta. The Braves will be moving from an area that’s predominantly black and relatively poor compared to whiter Cobb County.

Braves stadium move highlights race, class BY RAY HENRY The Associated Press ATLANTA — For the Braves, abandoning downtown Atlanta for the suburbs means moving closer to the team’s fan base and developing money-making restaurants and amenities. Team officials say it’s simply good business. But the decision also highlights long-standing disparities over wealth, where people live and transportation — all facets of life connected to race and social class in Atlanta. The Braves will be moving from an area that’s predominantly black and relatively poor compared to whiter Cobb County — where the team says more ticket-buyers live. Although it is long past segregation, the hometown of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. is far from integrated, and the city’s politics, business and even sports teams reflect that gap. Consider what Rick Grimes views from his home blocks from Turner Field each time there’s a game: fans, mostly white, streaming past on the sidewalk. “I would say the large majority of people who support the Braves are white folks,’’ said Grimes, who is AfricanAmerican. While no one would reasonably accuse the Braves of making a decision based on race or class, one scholar says major attractions often migrate toward money. “It becomes a class issue in a lot of ways,’’ said Larry Keating, a Georgia Tech professor emeritus who has studied Atlanta’s development. “A lot of the primo stuff that is highly valued by the society ends up going where the wealthiest areas are.’’ Team officials say they were looking at other factors. When Atlanta did not negotiate terms acceptable to the Braves, the team found a suburban government willing to pay for a chunk of the proposed stadium. The Braves will

also own the property around the stadium, meaning it can develop restaurants and stores within walking distance. There are few amenities around Turner Field. Team officials say the new site would offer better transportation access considering the majority of fans come from north of the city. “We don’t look at the exact makeup of the race, religion factor of that ticket buyer,’’ said Derek Schiller, executive vice president of sales and marketing for the Braves. “What we’re concerned about as a business that sells tickets is where do our ticket buyers come from? ... We are moving closer to where the majority of our ticket buyers come from.’’ Like many cities, metro Atlanta has an urban core that includes a large population of black residents and suburbs that are typically whiter. Atlanta famously marketed itself as “The City Too Busy To Hate’’ as other Southern cities resisted integration. But the city has long-standing racial divisions. Once owned by media mogul Ted Turner, the Braves grew a national fan base as their games were carried on cable systems around the country on one of Turner’s TV stations. To support its argument for leaving, the Braves released a map based on ticket sales data that

showed its fans were clustered in an arc north of downtown Atlanta that ran through the suburbs. That information also shows fans tended to purchase singlegame tickets at the highest rates in places that were several times as rich as neighborhoods closest to the stadium and much whiter. Of the communities with the ten highest sales rates, all but one were north of the current stadium and had median household incomes ranging from roughly $61,000 to $100,000. Those communities ranged from 58 to 85 percent white, according to counts by the U.S. Census Bureau. For this analysis, The Associated Press examined last year’s ticket sales by zip code as tallied by the Braves and compared it with Census counts and estimates showing the population of adults in those areas along with race and income. The analysis ignored zip codes with less than 10,000 people and those more than 100 miles from the current stadium. The comparisons are imperfect. The zip code areas used by the Census do not perfectly align with postal zip codes. The sales figures do not include season ticket purchases, people who pay in cash or customers who refuse to supply their addresses. Braves officials think the sample likely undercounts suburban fans since at least some suburban commuters presumably buy tickets using Atlanta work addresses. In contrast to the Braves, the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons decided to remain downtown after Atlanta agreed to contribute $200 million in tax money toward a $1 billion new stadium. Some see class, not race, as the more relevant divide. C.J. Stewart, who coaches Braves star Jason Heyward in batting, sees poverty as a deterrent to ticket sales. “It’s hard to go to a Braves game when you’re hoping and praying that your child graduates from high school,’’ he said.

PHILADELPHIA — Keenan Reynolds ran through steady snow and swirling wind into the NCAA record book and Navy beat Army 34-7 on Saturday for its 12th consecutive victory in the series. Reynolds scored on touchdown runs of 47 yards, 11 yards and 1 yard. The sophomore has 29 rushing touchdowns, breaking the single-season mark for a quarterback previously held by Ricky Dobbs (Navy, 2009) and Collin Klein (Kansas State, 2011), both of whom had 27. Reynolds ran 30 times for 136 yards on a frozen, snow-covered REYNOLDS field. He also caught a 2-point conversion pass on a trick play following his second touchdown. Navy (8-4) won the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy for the second consecutive season and ninth time in 11 years. The trophy is awarded to the service academy with the most victories in games between Navy, Army and Air Force. The Midshipmen haven’t lost to Army since 2001 and lead the series 58-49-7. Navy’s 12-game run is the longest in the history of the rivalry that began in 1890. Army (3-9) fumbled five times and was intercepted once in its fifth straight defeat. Embattled coach Rich Ellerson fell to 0-5 against the Midshipmen and 20-41 overall since taking the job in December 2008. KUCHAR, ENGLISH LEAD AT FRANKLIN TEMPLETON SHOOTOUT

NAPLES, Fla. — Matt Kuchar and Harris English took a four-stroke lead in the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Saturdays, playing the back nine in 9-under 27 in the better-ball round for a 12-under 60. Kuchar and English were 20 under the RitzCarlton Golf Resort’s Tiburon course. They opened with a 64 on Friday in modified alternate-shot play. The team event ends Sunday with a scramble. BRUINS’ THORNTON SUSPENDED 15 GAMES

NEW YORK — Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton was suspended for 15 games without pay the NHL on Saturday for punching and injuring unsuspecting Pittsburgh defenseman Brooks Orpik. Thornton went after Orpik during a stoppage in play Dec. 7, slew-footing him to the ice and punching him twice. Orpik sustained a concussion and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. Earlier, Orpik hit Boston’s Loui Eriksson, knocking him out of the game with a concussion. Thornton was assessed a match penalty. Orpik hasn’t played since the game. BODY OF CHIEFS LB BELCHER EXHUMED FOR BRAIN EXAM

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Former Kansas City Chiefs’ linebacker Jovan Belcher’s body has been exhumed more than a year after he killed his girlfriend and himself so that his brain can be examined for signs of a degenerative condition linked to repeated concussions. Jovan’s family had his body exhumed Friday at North Babylon Cemetery in the Long Island, N.Y., community of Bay Shore, the family’s attorney, Dirk Vandever, told The Kansas City Star. An examination of Belcher’s brain could determine whether he had chronic traumatic encephalopathy last December when he killed his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, with whom he had an infant daughter, in their home. Belcher then drove to the Chiefs’ practice facility and shot himself in the head in the parking lot. From wire reports

fter an overwhelmingly successful Thanksgiving dinner last month, Geraldine Singleton is hard at work preparing to serve Christmas dinner to a crowd she expects will be just as large — around 1,200 were served at the South Sumter Gym on Nov. 24. “There were so many wonderful volunteers who came out to help, and people were generous in their donations of food and money to buy food,” Singleton said. “There’s no way these dinners could happen without the generosity of people in Sumter.” Singleton and a group of friends formed a club two decades ago to give back to the community, and the Thanksgiving meal was the result. She is now the

only remaining member from the club, and as the effort expands, she has depended on the assistance of other volunteers to help cook the meals and serve the growing number of diners. She believes in feeding the spirit as well as the stomanch, too. For each meal, Singleton also enlists the aid of ministers to speak and bless the food, and she arranges live entertainment; at Thanksgiving, there were gospel singers. Christmas should have seasonal music, she hopes. Included in the 1,200 people served were many shut-ins, she said. “We never would have been able to serve them without all the people who volunteered to deliver the meals,” Singleton said, adding that she gets a list of names from Sumter Senior Services of SEE SINGLETON, PAGE C4

EDUCATION NEWS Sumter School District STUDENTS ATTEND REGION CLINIC

Twelve students from Sumter High School and one from Alice Drive Middle School attended the Region Orchestra clinic at Myrtle Beach recently. The clinic was held on a Friday night and all day Saturday and concluded with a concert on Saturday night. The students who participated from Sumter were Michelle Casey, Kiana Colclough, Bailey Elmore, Larry Fullard, Ashley Gantt, Mikayla Geddings, Marian Hornak, Haleigh Jordan, Naomi McQuiller, Breauna Sanders, Caroline Toburen, Taylor Willis and Michael Zhang. Sumter High School Principal Dana Fall and his wife traveled to the beach for the concert. Fall said, “Once again students at Sumter High School have exceeded expectations by not only participating at the Region festival, but by having 13 students selected to perform in such an event. My wife and I were amazed by the professionalism that the students and their teachers showed.” The students will prepare an audition for All State orchestra on Jan. 11, 2014. The director of bands at Sumter High is Erik Hines. SHOWER SHAW WITH COOKIES A SUCCESS

Sumter School District again participated in the annual Shower Shaw with Cookies project. Shower Shaw is sponsored by Sumter Volunteers Inc., under the leadership of executive director Jo Anne Morris, and provides thousands of dozens of cookies to Shaw Air Force and Third Army men and women living here and serving abroad. Sumter School District provided 2,099 dozen cookies for the effort. Crestwood High School led the baking with 200 dozen; Oakland Primary School followed with 160 dozen; and Mayewood Middle School baked 150 dozen. Crestwood High School students turned in 1,000 holiday cards, Oakland Primary, 431 cards, followed by R.E. Davis Elementary with 429 cards. Sumter School District schools did a total of 3,247 cards. Sumter School District serves many military dependents from both the Air Force and the Third Army and also employs many spouses of Shaw personnel and military retirees. The District appreciates the relationship with the military in our community. BACKPACK PROGRAM AT WILLOW DRIVE

Willow Drive Elementary School is involved in the Backpack Program, a program started by Harvest Hope Food Bank which provides children with a backpack full of kid friendly foods every weekend. Aldersgate United Methodist Church is the faithbased partner for this project and provided a donation of $1,500. The school’s PTO and some individuals paid the balance to allow the school to send home bags of food to 29 students every Friday through June. Students in need are identified through teachers, counselors and other staff members. Aldersgate Lead Pastor Webb Belangia and Associate Pastor Wes Conner delivered the food to Willow Drive last Thursday, and volunteers from the church came on Friday to pack backpacks and hand them out to students. The food delivered is non-perishable and can be easily microwaved or is ready to eat. Harvest Hope provides the food at a reasonable price

| and is careful to provide nutritious food that does not have a fast expiration date. Some examples of food in the first round were soup, macaroni and cheese, beans and franks, applesauce, Pop Tarts, cookies and juice. The food delivered last week is for two months; following the first round, another shipment will be delivered with food for the next two months. Community members who would like to make a monetary donation can send it to the Willow Drive PTO, marked for the Backpack Program. The more funds the school receives, the more students it can feed. Assistant Principal Karen Buffalo is the contact at the school for the program. She can be reached at (803) 7735796. For other faith-based entities that would like to sponsor the program at another school in their community, information is available online at http://www.harvesthope.org/childfeeding-programs.

McLellan’s store is seen shortly after being built on the corner of Main and West Liberty streets in 1916.

McLellan’s 5¢ to $1 a longtime favorite on Main Street According to Sumter’s application for the downtown’s inclusion in The National Register of Historic Places, the Barrett Store, where the McLellan’s store was located, was built circa 1850. The building was a Charlestonstyle house with the store on the ground floor, living quarters upstairs and a family entrance on West Liberty. The store was later operated by Wentworth Crosswell, cousin of John Kennedy Crosswell who worked for him and who later founded Crosswell Home. The corner store became a part of many property holdings of John K. Crosswell.

y 1902 the building became a drug store, and later in 1911 it served as a pool room and a cigar retail business owned by J.E. King. In 1916 McLellan’s would occupy the Teicher and Barrett building, which was renoSammy vated to WAY accommodate the new business. According to The Item, “The new store is one of a chain of stores by the McLellan Co. being the thirtieth which the company is operating, practically all of them being in the South.” The business prospered; in 1939 The Sumter Daily Item reported that improvements were

being made to the store. The work included additions and upgrades to the building which, according to manager W.I. Reeder, were expected to be completed about April 1. Two stores, fronting Liberty Street and adjoining the McLellan’s Building, were later added to the business, increasing the length of the store about 45 feet. Above the two buildings, a second floor was constructed to serve as a stock room. The office was moved to a mezzanine at the back of the building, and an entrance from Liberty Street and two show windows were incorporated in the design. A new heating system was installed in the basement which was excavated on the site of the second store building.

The entire interior was remodeled to include new fixtures, a cooling and heating system and indirect lighting. The building doubled its insulation, blowing eight inches of rock wool into the ceiling. The new insulation helped create a cool, dust-free environment for its many shoppers. The “office and bookkeeping department was located on the second floor. There were modern, comfortably furnished restrooms for the clerks in addition to a large storage area.” One of the features of the store was the new 34-foot-long candy case of the latest design. A new hardwood floor added to the attractive-

ness of the interior. All counters were widened and rearranged. An electric freight elevator, opening on the alley at the rear, was another added improvement.” In addition to the numerous physical improvements, a new, expanded line of merchandise was offered to shoppers. “A soft drink and sandwich counter and a new department for the store were expected to prove popular with customers.” In June of 1953 the McLellan’s building was completely demolished, along with Fishel’s Jewelry and Sibert’s Drugs (which moved to West Liberty Street in 1953) which were added to the main building, leaving only the rear portion, which housed the elevator, intact. The new facility, constructed of brick, concrete and steel, was scheduled to open in

August of that year. The new structure would feature a first floor containing 10,000 square feet of “selling space.” The offices and storerooms would be located on the second floor. “The entire downstairs front was glass, and plate glass show windows flanked the rear entrance on Liberty.” During the brief opening ceremonies, Mayor M. Priscilla Shaw cut the ribbon with gold scissors presented to her by the McLellan’s Co. McLellan’s continued as one of the more popular businesses of the downtown area until it closed its doors in January 1996. The building still stands and currently houses Standard Music Co.

Do not give credit to any rumors that may be circulated by irresponsible busybodies – the board of health is the dependable source of information.

The city trucks operate on regular schedules and collect garbage at the same hour on each street every day. When garbage cans (or tubs, crates or cartons) are placed on the parkway after the truck has made the daily trip, the garbage remains uncollected until the next day. During the interval the trash is scattered by stray dogs and garbage searchers — and the result is an unsightly mess.

This is supposed to be a gentle hint to rummage sale promoters to cease and desist. In conclusion this journalistic tip is handed out: The way to stop rummage sales on the Court House grounds is to stop them by direct order, reinforced by police surveillance. Sumter folks and visitors eat many bananas, and a heavy percentage of the discarded peelings are thrown on the sidewalks. This careless practice is a nuisance and a menace to the life and limb of pedestrians who do not watch every step. Police admonition, if not arrest, might have a salutary effect on banana skin tossers. At the movies: The Sumter Theatre is showing “Confessions of A Nazi Spy” with Edward G.

Furman’s boys picked up their seventh win in the past eight starts last night when they edged Lamar’s Silver Foxes by about the thickness of a fox hair. With time running short, Furman waited for the final shot. The score was tied 58-58. The shot missed, Furman got the rebound, and Marvin Haley fired a last-gasper from the circle. As the ball curved through its arch the buzzer sounded. The shot was good, Haley had his 8th point, and Furman had a 60-858 victory.

Boeing adding S.C. paint facility CHARLESTON (AP) — Boeing has released more details of its $1 billion expansion in South Carolina, announcing it has acquired more land and will open a painting facility in the state. The aeronautics company announced Friday that it will begin construction in the second half of 2014 on a 230,000-square-foot building to paint the 787 Dreamliners it builds at its North Charleston

assembly plant. Currently, 787s built in South Carolina are flown to Fort Worth, Texas, to be painted with airline logos and then are returned to South Carolina for final delivery to customers. “We can make our delivery process even more efficient by painting airplanes here in South Carolina, creating more value and convenience for our customers,” Jack Jones, the vice president and general

manager of Boeing South Carolina, said in a statement. Boeing said the new paint facility should be in operation by mid-2016. The company also said it has reached an agreement with Palmetto Railways, a division of the state Commerce Department, for a long-term lease of about 470 additional acres of land in North Charleston. Boeing said the purpose of

the lease is to protect the land for future expansion. The lease includes a provision that Boeing can purchase the land at the end of the lease term in 2027. Jones said the company has no specific plans for the land other than it will be the location of the new paint facility. Boeing announced Thursday that it will be adding 300 to 400 employees in North Charleston as part of a re-

structuring of its research operations. A similar number will be added in St. Louis area and Huntsville, Ala. Those jobs are being shifted from Seattle and Southern California. The company will begin moving the jobs early next year. Earlier this year, Boeing announced it will invest an additional $1.1 billion and create 2,000 new jobs in South Carolina over eight years.

Thursday through Though Saturday; Sundays, housed at the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. lodge, the resCONTACT: (803) taurant is open 720-6585 to the public, and Brown himself is not a member of the private club. He has been in the food industry for about three years after a 20-year stint as a building inspector. “It was time to do something else,” Brown said. “I’ve always been a cook around the house and stuff. My mom cooked a lot, and I picked it up on my own.”

The Second Mill Grill dining room is filled with patrons on Thursday night.

Open three nights a week — Thursday through Saturday — and Sunday afternoons, Brown and his staff of five serve a variety of options from burgers and sandwiches to steak and shrimp. “We do well with steaks,” said the Sumter High School graduate. “I’m kind of an old Southern boy, so I like Southern cooking. I do chicken bog and pulled pork. On Sundays, I might have fried chicken, baked ham and turkey with any and all sides, like mac and cheese, veggies and a salad.” Prices range from $6.99 for an Elks Burger to $14.99 for a

bacon-wrapped fillet that comes with two sides and a roll. Sides include items such as coleslaw, baked potato and grilled asparagus. There are also nightly specials, Brown said, and Sundays are either $7.99 or $8.99 depending on whether you get a meat and two sides or a meat and three sides. Second Mill Grill also does catering for weddings, office lunches, holiday events and church lunches. Plates start at $10.50, Brown said. For more information, call (803) 720-6585.

CHARLESTON (AP) — During the past dozen years, Charleston’s Digital Corridor has helped launch dozens of technology companies that have created more than 4,000 high-paying technology jobs. Now the public-private partnership will work with a venture capital fund that should make it easier for those companies to flourish. Silicon Harbor Ventures announced earlier this month it will begin operating in January as a $5 million venture capital fund managed by the investors who have experience in technology businesses. “If we have a Charlestonbased, locally sponsored company capital fund, I believe we can accelerate the success of companies,” said Ernest Andrade, the director of the corridor. “We can also give local investors a chance to participate in some of the economic upside that is being generated by these companies.” The corridor was started a dozen years ago to spur development of technology businesses at a time when there were concerns that too much of Charleston’s economy was becoming based on relatively low-paying service and tourism jobs. The corridor helps knowledge and computer-based businesses with training and mentoring, as well as finding employees and providing working space in its two business incubators. Since the business incubators were opened four years ago, 72 companies have started and moved on to larger quarters. There are 25 currently working out of the incubators where companies can get reasonably priced working space and their employees can rub shoulders with others in the industry. The startups range from software development and interactive marketing to video production and information technology consulting. A survey of those companies earlier this year found that the average annual wage was almost $72,000, almost twice the average for South Carolina overall. After training, linking companies to employees and providing startup space, the venture capital “is the fourth leg of the stool,” Andrade said. “It’s probably the most important piece, but we chose to do it last. There are a lot of other communities around who have said we are going to create a capital fund first and then try to figure out the other pieces.”

ABOVE: Shoppers rest on chairs in the Fashion Show mall in Las Vegas. The National Retail Federation estimates that sales over the four-day 2013 holiday weekend including Thanksgiving declined 2.9 percent from last year, marking the first drop since the group began tracking the figure in 2006. Overall spending for November and December is still expected to increase 3.9 percent, but whether that plays out remains to be seen. BELOW: Bargain hunters, bundled up from the cold, wait outside an electronics store in Atlanta on Thanksgiving Day.

strapped shoppers in stores and to better compete with the cheaper prices of online retailers like Amazon. But shoppers got used to those deals and now won’t buy without them. The constant discounting has blunted the “wow” factor of sales during the holidays. For instance, some retailers were offering discounts of 40 percent or more on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday. But Jennifer Ambrosh, 40 was unimpressed with the “deals” she saw on that day. “There’s a lot of hype, but ... the deals aren’t that good,” Ambrosh, an accountant, says. Overall, the retail federation expects spending in November and December to rise 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion. But to get that growth, analysts say retailers will need to discount heavily, which eats away profits. There are signs that profits for the quarter that includes the holiday season are being hurt by the discounting. Wal-Mart and American Eagle Outfitters are among 47 retailers that have slashed their outlooks for either the quarter or the year. Overall, retailers’ earnings growth is expected to be up 2.1 percent, according to research firm Retail Metrics. That would be the worst performance since profit fell 6.7 percent in the second quarter of 2009 when the country was in a recession.

SHOP ’TIL YOU DROP? Not for everyone NEW YORK (AP) — Many Americans are watching the annual holiday spending ritual from the sidelines this year. Money is still tight for some. Others are fed up with commercialism of the holidays. Still others are waiting for bigger bargains. And people like Lark-Marie Anton Menchini are more thoughtful about their purchases. The New York public relations executive says in the past she’d buy her children up to eight Christmas gifts each, but this year they’re getting three apiece. The leftover money is going toward their college savings. “We told them Santa is ... being very conscious of how many gifts he puts on his sleigh,” Menchini, 36, says. Despite an improving economy, most workers are not seeing meaningful wage increases. And some of those who can splurge say the brash commercialism around the holidays — many more stores are opening for business on Thanksgiving — is a turnoff. But perhaps the biggest factor is that shoppers are less motivated than ever by holiday sales. Since the Great Recession, retailers have been dangling more discounts throughout the year, so Americans have learned to hold out for even deeper holiday savings on clothes, electronics and more. To stay competitive and boost sales, retailers are slashing prices further during their busiest season of the year, which is cutting into their own profit margins. There aren’t reliable figures on how many people plan to shop during the holidays. But early data points to a shift in holiday spending. The National Retail Federation estimates that sales during the start to the official start to season — the four-day weekend that began on Thanksgiving Day — dropped 2.9 percent from last year to $57.4 billion. That would mark the first decline in the seven years the trade group has tracked spending. And during the week afterward — which ended last Sunday — sales fell another 2.9 percent compared with a year ago, according to data tracker ShopperTrak, which did not give dollar amounts. Meanwhile, the number of shoppers in stores plunged nearly 22 percent. The numbers are sobering for retailers, which depend on making up to 40 percent of their revenue in the last two months of the year. They suggest shifts in the attitudes of U.S. shoppers that could force stores to reshape their strategies:

SHOPPERS WANT DEALS Stores slashed prices during the recession to get financially

SCRUTINIZING PURCHASES The recession not only taught Americans to expect bargains. It also showed them that they could make do with less. And in the economic recovery, many have maintained that frugality. So whereas in a better economy, Americans would make both big and small purchases, in this economy they’re being more thoughtful and making choices about what to buy. Analysts say that hasn’t boded well for retailers that sell clothing, shoes and holiday items. That’s because Americans are buying more big-ticket items over the holidays. Government figures show that retail sales were up 0.7 percent in November, the biggest gain in five months. But the increase was led by autos, appliances and electronics. Auto sales jumped 1.8 percent, furniture purchases rose 1.2 percent and sales at electronics and appliances stores rose 1.1 percent. Meanwhile, sales at department stores and clothing chains were weak. Americans are leaning toward big purchases for two reasons. They want to take advantage of low interest rates. And since many paid down debt since the recession, they feel more comfortable using credit cards again for such purchases. But they won’t do that and buy smaller items. “This is still a weak, fragile shopper,” says Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy. Retailers including Macy’s and Target in recent months have said that shoppers’ focus on big-ticket items has put a damper on sales of discretionary items, and the retail federation says it has hurt holiday sales in particular. HOLIDAY CONSUMERISM Black Friday used to be the official kickoff to the buying season, but more than a dozen chains opened on Thanksgiving this year. That didn’t sit well with some shoppers who viewed it as an encroachment on family time. Some threatened to boycott stores that opened on the holiday, while others decided to forgo shopping altogether. In a poll of 6,200 shoppers conducted for the retail federation prior to the start of the season, 38 percent didn’t plan to shop during the Thanksgiving weekend, up from 34.8 percent the year before. Ruth Kleinman, 30, isn’t planning to shop the entire season in part because she’s disheartened by the holiday openings. The New Yorker says the holiday season “has really disintegrated.” While some shoppers didn’t approve, analysts say stores will need to open on the holiday to appeal to the masses. Overall sales declined over the holiday weekend, but several retailers said there were big crowds on Thanksgiving. “Customers clearly showed that they wanted to be out shopping,” says Amy von Walter, a Best Buy spokeswoman. Analysts say stores will need to redefine Thanksgiving as a family tradition beyond sitting at the table eating turkey to make more shoppers comfortable. “They have to show that they’re maintaining a family tradition in new ways,” says Marshal Cohen, chief retail analyst at market research firm NPD Group.

Nose Jammer a winner

W

afield & afloat

ith deer season winding down — we’ve only got a little over two weeks remaining — I thought I’d go back to something I wrote about during the early part of the season. Just after the season began, I did an article on a new product called “Nose Jammer.” The product is supposed to scramble the olfactory senses of a deer and render them useless. For my money a deer’s No. 1 defense mechanism is its sense of smell. They can smell an acorn from a half a mile and smell you and me from across the state, so anything that would confuse this sense would seem to be the perfect deer hunting product. Earle Since I began WOODWARD hunting exclusively with a bow some 15-plus years ago, I have spent a lot of time, money and effort into controlling my scent while hunting and I always play the wind direction. If the wind is not blowing from the right direction for a particular stand, I just don’t hunt that stand, regardless of how much I may want to do so. While I do put a lot of stock in scent-eliminating clothing, scentfree showers and scent-free laundry detergents, etc., nothing can get rid of every bit of human odor. I rely on the fact that scent just can’t travel upwind. So does the stuff work? I’m going to have to act like a politician and give you an answer like; “Yes, maybe; I think so, but I’m not sure; I’ll get back to you.” The truth is, for my money, it seems to be another tool in the scent control arsenal. I’ll explain. The very first time I used the stuff, I had eight does come from

downwind, cross behind me and then circle in front of me. They completed 270 degrees of a circle and never knew I was there. A week or so later, I was on another piece of property and had another couple of does cross downwind. I could tell when they hit my wind line because they both stopped for a second or two, seemed a little confused and then walked right on by me. They smelled something that got their attention, but it didn’t alarm them. A few mornings later, a young buck came running directly under my stand from downwind and never seemed to worry about any strange smell. I admit to gaining a lot of confidence in Nose Jammer over the course of the season. In a laboratory situation, in order to find out if something really works, you need a control situation. Would you get the same or different results had you done nothing? Well, the only way I know to get that answer was to hunt without using Nose Jammer, but keep everything else the same. I crawled into the stand last week without spraying the Nose Jammer on the base of the tree like I’d been doing all season long. It felt sort of strange. The stand I was in was in some fairly open woods that was a mixture of pines and hardwoods. From directly in front of the stand, I could see about 100 yards up an old logging road where the line of rubs and scrapes ran. The trail the deer used came to a small clearing just to the left of my stand and broke into two separate trails. The junction was right at 30 yards, but was obscured by twigs and small branches. Most of the deer walked along the nearer part of the trail, which put them walking by at 18 yards, the farther path

pushed on out to 40 yards fairly quickly. The wind was from the north, which meant that it was blowing at about 45 degrees away from the junction. Just after 5 p.m., and just after the sun went behind the trees, I watched a large deer walk across the logging road heading in my direction. As the deer emerged from the short oaks that edged the road and entered the small clearing, I was shocked to see the headgear he was wearing. What a set of antlers! The deer headed straight for the junction, took the nearer trail, which would put him in bow range in just a few steps, then stopped about two steps onto the trail. The buck stood there for 3-4 minutes and then took two steps back. He them selected the farther trail. This deer knew something wasn’t right, but could not figure it out. My guess is that the breeze that had been blowing had swirled my scent onto the trail at some point. The buck continued down the trail, stopping every few steps and freezing for a few minutes, to survey the area. The buck was about 60-70 yards away when he hit my scent line. There was no doubt about it; he gave a mighty snort and bolted into the creek bottom. When a deer catches a scent that alarms it, it will exhale quickly to clear its nostrils of other smells, causing a sneezing sound that also warns other deer. This was the first time I’d had that happen since before I started using Nose Jammer. The buck never returned. So does it work? My quick answer is yes, at least to some degree; I do think it helps. I can promise you that I’ll finish out the season using it, and in particular the next time I’m in that stand.

WASHINGTON — A New Year’s deadline that could send the price of milk skyward looms over congressional negotiators as they try to reach agreement on a five-year farm bill. They’ve been tripped up by differences over the nation’s food stamp program and how to restructure farm subsidies. The two chambers have been far apart on both issues for more than two years. But the leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture committees expressed optimism after a private meeting Wednesday that they may be able to find resolution in time to narrowly avert the expiration of dairy subsidies on Jan. 1. If those subsidies expire, new laws will kick in that could result in decreased dairy supply on the commercial market and higher prices for a gallon of milk. Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, a Republican on the House-Senate farm bill conference committee, said negotiators could possibly hold a public meeting next week for the conference committee to settle some of the remaining issues before the House leaves for the year on Dec. 13. But with a

final deal still elusive, it seems unlikely that Congress will finish the bill before the end of the year. On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner said the bill should be extended through January while negotiators work out their differences. Boehner also contradicted the optimism of House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, ROkla., who said Wednesday that the two sides had made “great progress.” “You know, I’ve not seen any real progress on the farm bill,” Boehner said. “And so if we’ve got to pass a one-month extension of the farm bill, I think we ought to be prepared to do that.” An extension is not certain, however. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said he doesn’t want to extend the bill again after Congress already extended the bill at the beginning of this year. Finding a compromise on cuts to the nation’s $80 billion-a-year food stamp program has been the toughest obstacle over the last two years. The House passed a bill this summer that would cut $4 billion from food stamps — now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP — an-

nually and allow states to create new work requirements for some recipients. The Democratic Senate, backed by President Barack Obama, passed a farm bill with $400 million annual cut, or a tenth of the House cut. Negotiators have discussed as a possibility cracking down further on a practice in some states of giving low-income people as little as $1 a year in home heating assistance, even when they don’t have heating bills, in order to make them eligible for increased food stamp benefits. The Senate found its $400 million in annual cuts by requiring that recipients receive at least $10 in assistance to make them eligible, while the House doubled that cut by requiring that recipients receive $20 annually — bringing the savings to around $800 million a year. It’s unclear whether a compromise would include the new work requirements passed by the House, but the Senate is unlikely to go along with those proposals. The Senate has also balked at a House provision to end government waivers that have allowed able-bodied adults without dependents to receive food stamps indefinitely. That

proposal has been particularly important to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. White House spokesman Jay Carney reiterated Obama’s support for the Senate version of the bill Thursday, calling the House SNAP cuts “unconscionable” and harmful to families across the country. “The president has mentioned and made clear that there is an opportunity for bipartisan cooperation on a comprehensive farm bill,” Carney said. “And he hopes and expects that that can be achieved before the end of the year.” Negotiators are also working out how farm subsidies should be restructured in the absence of a traditional subsidy called direct payments, which are paid to farmer regardless of crop price or crop yield. Both chambers’ bills would eliminate this $5 billion annual subsidy in response to critics who say it pays farmers not to farm. But they have argued over how to replace those payments, with major farm groups squabbling over whether subsidies should kick in based on crop prices or farmer revenue, and how to count the acreage on which the subsidies are based.

FISHING REPORT Santee Cooper System Bream: Good. Captain Steve English reports that bream fishing continues to be pretty strong in the canal, although fish may be starting to move out into deeper water. Bream fishing has also been good around brushpiles, with the best concentrations of fish 12-16 feet down over the top of brush in 24-30 feet of water. Crappie: Good. Captain Steve English reports that crappie can be caught around brush, with the best action in 32-40 feet of water. Captain English has found that the crappie fishing is much better in the upper lake right now. Captain Jim Glenn reports that in addition to the brush pattern crappie have also been caught in good numbers in the bigger creeks on Lake Marion. Striped Bass: Fair. Captain Jim Glenn reports that overall striper fishing is fair, although by most accounts there are not many keeper fish being caught. Lake Murray Striped bass: Fair to good. Lake World reports that striper have moved up the lake and are mostly being found above Dreher Island. The most productive patterns have been fishing down-lines from the surface down to 30 feet, free-lining herring and trolling bucktails. Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the bite has been very consistent on Murray recently. Drifting with cut herring over main lake humps that top out at 30-50 feet has been most productive, but the productive zone will vary from day to day. Lake Wateree Largemouth bass: Good. Right now, main lake rock and docks are the ticket. Fish shallow to medium depth Crankbaits and jigs. A shakey head trick worm will work as well. The grass is dying off, so that bite is pretty much dead. Lake Greenwood Largemouth Bass: Fair to good. Veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter reports that bass fishing has been pretty good on Lake Greenwood, and at times it has taken some big weights to win recent tournaments. Fish are starting to move into the backs of creeks, but they are not there yet. For now the best pattern is fishing jigs around docks in the middle part of the lake, concentrating on 3-5 feet of water. Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the channel catfish bite on Lake Greenwood is consistent. Lake Monticello Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the fishing for big fish has been really consistent the last few weeks, and this year there have also been good numbers of teenage-sized fish that help pass the time between bites from the big ones. Most baitfish are holding in the 40-60 foot range, and in that range and a little deeper the majority of the big fish have been found. It’s not always necessary to fish around large schools of baitfish, but often it is an indicator that feeding cats are also present. Lake Russell Black Bass: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that fish have moved into a traditional late fall/ winter pattern, and most species are grouped up in about 30 feet of water around bait schools. The best locations are in the creeks along the edge of the channel, but the key is to locate schools of shad. Spotted and largemouth bass can be caught on jigging spoons and drop shot rigs. Crappie/ perch: Fair to good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that crappie and perch are keyed around the same shad schools

that the bass are on, but the crappie action has been a little slower although a few can be caught. White perch have been biting well on minnows fished on drop shot rigs, and soon yellow perch should start to feed well, too. Crappie have moved off of the shallow brush piles. Lake Thurmond Crappie: Very good. Captain William Sasser reports that crappie fishing continues to be very strong around brush piles 15-18 feet deep in 20-25 feet of water. Fishing the Georgia Little River in the backs of coves has been good, and minnows have been the best bait. White Perch: Very good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that at the top of Clark’s Hill big schools of white perch are being found on the bottom in about 22 feet of water. Some yellow perch are also mixed in as well as small striper, but the white perch sizes and numbers have been excellent. Minnows have been the best bait. Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good. Captain William Sasser reports that striper can be found way back in most or all of the major creeks. . Lake Wylie Catfish: Good. Captain Rodger Taylor reports that fishing for channels and blues has been strong over the past few weeks. Blues and channels are mixed together around the deep flats. Largemouth Bass: Slow. FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that bass fishing has been much tougher than usual and tournament weights have been way down on Lake Wylie. Fish are starting to get bunched up around deeper channel swings and in their traditional winter haunts. Bass are 100% focused on shad right now. Lake Jocassee Black Bass: Fair. The baitfish should continue to bunch up tighter and tighter and the bass action should continue to improve until temperatures get cold. Trout: Slow. The trout bite has been slow ever since the rain caused levels to rise rapidly and dirtied the water. November is traditionally a tough month but this month has been even tougher than usual. Try trolling minnows and spoons around 80 feet deep. Lake Keowee Largemouth and Spotted Bass: Slow to fair. Guide Brad Fowler reports that Lake Keowee bass fishing is pretty erratic right now, with some fish in the 15-20 foot range and others in 60 feet of water. Before the very cold snap there was also some schooling activity. The bait that the fish are keying on has been small threadfin shad. Overall the best patterns have been fishing a Scrounger head/fluke combination and fishing a finesse/ doodle worm on a drop shot. For schooling fish Spooks have been the best bet on top. Lake Hartwell Striped and Hybrid Bass: Slow to fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that striper fishing has improved significantly on the lakes. Fish are scattered and they have been found out in the middle on the main lake and up the major rivers and creeks. Most fish are being caught trolling umbrella rigs and free lines right now, and there is less action on down lines. Crappie: Fair to good. Captain Bill Plumley reports that crappie fishing continues to improve. Fish are being caught right over the top of brush in 25 feet of water with minnows and jigs about 15-20 feet down. There also continues to be some action around bridges at night.
