Tuomey interim CEO outlines plan for tenure ‘Strong mayor’ vs. councilmanager BY BRADEN BUNCH bbunch@theitem.com

Former, incumbent Sumter brass discuss pros, cons of systems

For Michael Schwartz, getting the local Sumter hospital into a strong position for the future is the current in a long line of tasks he has undertaken during his extensive career. Having spent more than 40 years in health care, al-

most exclusively working in high-level administer positions at nonprofit hospitals throughout the SCHWARTZ east coast, Schwartz now finds himself coming out of retirement to serve as the interim CEO of Tuomey Healthcare System.

He comes to Sumter after being named to replace Jay Cox, the hospital’s long serving CEO who resigned shortly after the hospital found itself on the losing end of an extended — and, in many ways, unresolved — lawsuit with the federal government. While negotiations are continuing to resolve the

lawsuit once and for all – Schwartz says the hospital, which currently faces a $239 million ruling, is making “incremental� progress in its discussions with the federal government - the need for meeting the health care demands of Sumter continues. SEE SCHWARTZ, PAGE A8

EVENING OPTIMISTS BRING SMILES TO KIDS’ FACES

BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com On Dec. 3, only a month after they elected a mayor and other officials, voters in Columbia went back to the polls to decide whether or not to change their city’s form of government. The question on the ballot involved an arcane shift of powers and responsibilities among municipal officials, moving from what’s called a “council-manager� form of government to a “strong mayor� system. Voters ultimately McELVEEN rejected a change to strong mayor system, with 57 percent of Columbia voters against the move. It was a result that pleased some officials in the area of Sumter, where the councilmanager form was pioneered more than 100 years ago. “I’m a big believer in the council-manager form of government,� said Steve Creech, a former Sumter mayor who also served as president of the S.C. Municipal Association. “Overall, it’s the purest form of government. It keeps politics and corruption out of administration.� Under council-manager, an elected mayor and city council vote to institute policy, pass ordinances and set the city budget, but most administrative SEE STRONG MAYOR, PAGE A4

Record highs in the South; ice, snow, freezing rain in the North CHICAGO (AP) — A storm with a 2,000-mile footprint threatened to frustrate Christmas travelers from Texas to Nova Scotia with a little of everything Mother Nature has to offer, from freezing rain, ice and snow to flooding, thunderstorms and possibly some tornadoes in the South. Some of the millions of people hitting the roads and airports Saturday squeaked through before any major weather hit, but as the afternoon wore on some cancellations and delays started to mount at major aviation hubs. Forecasters said roads that are passable one minute could become treacherous the next as a cold blast

on the backend of the storm turns rain to ice and snow. Making it harder for forecasters to stay a step ahead, the system was a weird swirl of wintry and spring-like weather as it passed over areas in the Midwest with freezing temperatures and places like Memphis, Tenn., where temperatures surpassed 70 degrees on Saturday. “This is a particularly strong storm with very warm, near record-breaking temperatures in the East and very cold air in the Midwest, and that contrast is the sort of conditions that are favorable for not only winter weather but also tornadoes,” said National

Weather Service meteorologist Ed Danaher in College Park, Md. The worst of the storm was expected to hit Midwest population centers Saturday night, giving some travelers a window at the start of the holiday rush to get through airports and along highways with little disruption. About 350 flights had been cancelled, nationwide, as of 5 p.m. EST, according to aviation tracking website FlightAware.com. Most of the disruptions were affecting flights in and out of major hubs like O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, though the weather there was not yet nasty.

Passers-by take in the view of Steve Davis, right, who dressed like a Gamecock cheerleader and stood on Broad Street in Sumter after losing a bet on the Carolina vs. Clemson game to his friend, David Kirby. Along with dressing as a cheerleader, Davis held a sign reading, “I lost the bet. Gamecocks Rule! 31-17.”

Investigators with the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s help in locating a man accused of robbing two convenience stores at knife-point. Bryan Kenneth Hodge, 29, of last known address 205 Toonsie Drive, is wanted on two charges of armed robbery. Around 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Hodge reportedly entered a store on the corner of U.S. 15 and Caroland Drive armed with a knife and held up the clerk, making off with an undetermined amount of money. HODGE Shortly after 6 a.m., Hodge reportedly entered another store at U.S. 15 and Nettles Road and again robbed the counter brandishing a knife. Law enforcement did not identify what kind of knife Hodge was reportedly carrying. Investigators were able to identify Hodge from security camera footage at one of the stores. He reportedly has been arrested previously on burglary and forgery charges. Hodge is described as a white male standing 5-foot, 11-inches tall and weighing 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was reportedly seen in a black 2002 two-door Chevrolet S-10. Hodge is described as armed and dangerous. Anyone with knowledge of Hodge’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (803) 436-2700 or call Crime Stoppers at (803) 436-2718 or 1-800-CRIME-SC (274-6372). Members of the public are advised to never attempt to apprehend a fugitive themselves.

Get vaccinated to avoid shingles rash BY JADE ANDERSON janderson@theitem.com The holidays can literally cause you to break out. “(Shingles) are not really more prevalent at a certain time of year, but stress can bring it on and the holidays are stressful for people at times,” said Paula J. Stover, chief programs officer for Sumter Family Health Center. Shingles is a painful rash that comes from the same virus as chickenpox. After an individual recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant in the body until for reasons not fully understood, it manifests as shingles. “Anyone who has had the chickenpox can get it because the virus is already in their

body, and we do see a good number of cases,” Stover said. Almost 1 in 3 Americans will develop shingles in their lifetime with an occurrence of about a million cases each year, according to the Center for Disease Control. “I always thought older people got it because I remember my grandmother having it,” said Holly Chase, director of the community development for the center. “I was 35 or 36. It hurt like someone was sticking me with tons of needles. It was very painful and scary. It was up in my hair line just above my eyes and ran back through my hair line on one side of my head and down the back of my neck. I was very fortunate that it didn’t get in my eyes.” About half of all shingles

cases occur in individuals 60 and older, and the older a person is, the more likely they are to develop shingles, the CDC states. One to five days before the rash appears, a person may feel pain, itching or tingling in the area where the rash develops. It forms blisters that tend to scab over in a week to 10 days and clears up in two weeks to a month. Shingles can cause loss of vision, according to the CDC. Other symptoms can include fever, headache, chills and upset stomach. On rare occasions, shingles can also lead to pneumonia, hearing problems, blindness, brain inflammation or death.

colored for the first time. “I thought I was having a reaction to the chemicals, but the dermatologist the doctor referred me to told me I had shingles,” Chase said. “I got the antiviral medicine, (and) it really did help after a day or two. I had blisters for several days, and I had to be very careful even washing my hair. The pain got less and less.” At the time, Chase worked with Tuomey Healthcare System, so she was out of work two weeks. “Just going to my office, I could end up in an elevator with a patient,” she said. “I had to stay away from those with a very low immune system or who were pregnant and small children, even my own children for a time. That was kind

of hard.” When the rash is in the blister-phase, an individual can spread the virus to people who have never had the chickenpox. A person who has never had chickenpox would develop them, not shingles, the CDC states. The only way to reduce the risk of developing shingles is to get vaccinated, according to the CDC. “We typically do recommend the vaccine,” Stover said. “The vaccine Zostavax® is typically a onetime vaccine. You don’t get it every year like the flu shot or every few years like the pneumonia vaccine.” If you suspect you have shingles or are interested in getting vaccinated, see your healthcare provider.

STRONG MAYOR from Page A1 tasks and management of municipal staff are the responsibility of a fulltime, nonpartisan manager who works under council. It was one of several systems created in the early 20th century to separate politics from daily city administration. Sumter boasts of being the first city to adopt the system after a public referendum on June 11, 1912, approved a municipal reform plan first proposed by New York reform advocate Richard S. Childs. “He learned about the commission (or council) form of government in Galveston, Texas, and heard Staunton, Va., had hired a manager,� said Talmadge Tobias, a former Sumter city manager. “He thought if you combined the commission form of government with the city manager, a professional could deal with the issues of running the city.� Today, council-manager is the preferred form of government for 40 percent of American cities with a population of more than 2,500 and many more overseas, according to the International City/County Management Association. Current Sumter Mayor Joe McElveen thinks an experienced city manager, like Sumter’s Deron McCormick, who understands the ins and outs of municipal finance and different de-

partments can be an invaluable guide to elected politicians who may not have any previous experience with city government. “When I was first elected, I had a little experience working with utilities and roads, but most (politicians) have run their own businesses or had other responsible positions somewhere else,� McElveen said. “They don’t know the core duties of the office.� But proponents of the strong-mayor form, which vests more executive authority in the city’s top elected office, say it makes government more responsive to voters when they know the mayor is directly responsible for how the city is run. Many of America’s largest cities have strong mayors, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, and South Carolina’s two largest cities after Columbia — Charleston and North Charleston — both also have executive mayors. Proponents of council-manager, on the other hand, say a hired manager can be more responsive to his bosses on council than a separately elected mayor, and it’s the responsibility of the elected council as a whole to exercise oversight. “I never had a contract,� Tobias said. “I

worked at the will of the council. At any meeting, if four of them broke that way, they could tell me goodbye.� But an official who manages department operations separately from the political branch of government can also act as a check on the elected politicians, said Creech, who noted if he or a council member ever made a poor suggestion to a manager like Tobias, he could politely “blow us off.� “Talmadge went to the department heads and told them, ‘you work for me. If you have a problem, come to me. If you go to a council member, I’ll dismiss you,’� Creech remembers. “And he told the council, ‘if you talk to the department heads, I’ll dismiss them.’� Manning Mayor Julia Nelson presides over a city that only switched from strong mayor to a system run by a city administrator under the council in 1995, and says she prefers the way Manning operates now. “I feel more comfortable if everybody has the same responsibility,� she said. “That way it’s not a one-man show.� Nelson likes the “team effort� required from the administrator and her fellow council members. She agrees the model is responsive to the city’s needs, because if an administra-

THE ITEM

tor isn’t doing a good job, “he’s not going to be the administrator anymore.� If he could change anything about Sumter’s government, McElveen would keep his office’s current level of responsibility but allow the mayor to become a fulltime city employee rather than a part-time official. That would allow a mayor (McElveen said the change would probably happen after his time in office) to focus more on the city, take part in more activities and better represent Sumter when dealing with other levels of government. “I spent as much time on my job with the city as I do my law office,� he said. “I don’t think it’s the form that determines (the mayor’s influence) so much as an individual who is willing to devote a lot of time to the position, and that can take away from the business side.� In that sense, McElveen said, the outcome of Columbia’s failed referendum may have left the city with the best possible outcome, a full-time mayor working alongside the city manager and council. “Columbia has really hit the sweet spot,� McElveen said.

SCHWARTZ from Page A1 Because of this, Schwartz is in the process of evaluating exactly where the hospital stands. And while that continues, Schwartz, armed with a 9-month contract from the hospital’s board of directors, says he has found several pressing issues for the local hospital.

According to Schwartz, the Sumter hospital needs about 22 new physicians working in Sumter to meet the healthcare demands of the community. These figures, he said, actually come from a report conducted by the hospital’s previous administration that he praised and agrees with after review. In addition, Sumter also has the added difficulty of an aging doctor workforce, with several of the physicians approaching retirement. Eventually, these doctors will need to be replaced, and Schwartz said with recent changes in health care regulations, that could happen sooner than expected. “A lot of them grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, and they’re tired. They came in, and they were pretty much free spirits. Now they’re controlled by the

health care system — Medicare, Medicaid, the bureaucracy — and they’re just tired of it,� Schwartz said “It’s not what they signed up for.� Just because there is a need for doctors in Sumter, however, Schwartz said that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be easy to fill the need. “There are difficulties in recruiting doctors to rural areas, and small towns,� Schwartz said. “Probably there’s more issues with the spouses than with the doctor, but it’s difficult.� And while there are needs in various different fields, Schwartz recognizes that some of those will be easier to fill than others. Therefore, the interim CEO said he hopes to focus on those positions that are crucial. “The first thing you do is make a list of priorities. What types of doctors do you really need,� Schwartz said, adding he also believes Tuomey needs to work with the current doctors’ practices in the area to recruit new talent. “If you can get doctors to come to existing practices, that’s a good thing,� Schwartz said. “We want to support our doctors, not compete with them.� “My goal is to hire eight to ten (this year),� Schwartz said. “We’re not

going to be able to hire 22 doctors in one year. There’s no way. But will hire eight to ten. If we’re lucky, twelve.� “How do you do it? I’m going to answer you in a short sentence. You do it legally. That’s the way you do it,� Schwartz said. “I don’t know what happened before. You do it legally. And there are ways to do it.� ENACTING THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Sitting on Schwartz’s desk is an extensive checklist, provided to him by his previous employer, that hospitals need to go through to make sure they are meeting all the requirements of the new health care law. The number of challenges the new law creates for hospitals, Schwartz said, is imposing. “If an airplane pilot had this for a checklist, the plane would crash by the time they got through all this,� Schwartz said. “I’m one of those ‘trust but verify’ kind of people,� Schwartz said. “We need to go through this stepby-step, and see how prepared we are for the Affordable Care Act.� One of the main goals for the hospital in regards to the Affordable Care Act is creating a hospital portal, an electronic records database so patients can have an easier time sharing their records between

but also its day-to-day legal counsel, as well. Those changes could have a positive impact for the hospital as they continue to meet with federal prosecutors in resolving the case. “It’s obviously not every day, but there’s incremental movement forward, and it’s yet to be determined what the outcome will be,� Schwartz said. “My view is, whatever the outcome, I’m hoping for an outcome - I’m praying for an outcome - that leaves this hospital intact so that it can continue to serve the community in the future.� NOT WORRYING ABOUT OPINIONS

Fury and frustration over Target data breach NEW YORK (AP) — Potential victims of credit card fraud tied to Target’s security breach said they had trouble contacting the discounter through its website and call centers. Angry Target customers expressed their displeasure in comments on the company’s Facebook page. Some even threatened to stop shopping at the store. Target’s CEO Gregg Steinhafel apologized through a statement issued on Friday. The retailer also said it’s working hard to resolve the problem and is adding more workers to field calls and help solve website issues.

A customer signs his credit card receipt at a Target store in Tallahassee, Fla., in 2008. Target says that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts customers may have been affected by a data breach that occurred at its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

And the discounter began offering 10 percent off for customers who shop in its stores this weekend and free credit-monitoring services to those who’ve been affected by the issue. The Minneapolisbased discounter said that while it’s only heard of “very few� re-

ports of fraud, it’s reaching out to customers who made purchases by swiping their cards when the scam occurred. The company also said it’s continuing

its investigation into the matter. “We take this crime seriously,� Steinhafel said in the statement. Target’s statements come after the nation’s

Shoppers looking for holiday deals wait in line outside of Kohls in Harrisonburg, Va., on Thanksgiving. Broadway resident Laura Flick, far right, was first in line at 4:30 p.m. for the store’s opening at 8 p.m.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stores open for 100 hours to attract shoppers BY ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer NEW YORK — Some stores are ending the holiday shopping season the same way they began it — with roundthe-clock, marathon shopping hours. Kohl’s for the first time is staying open for essentially five days straight, from 6 a.m. on Friday through 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Macy’s and Kmart are opening some of their stores for more than 100 hours in a row from Friday through Christmas Eve. And Toys R Us planned to stay open for 87 hours straight starting on Saturday, which is typically the second-biggest shopping day of the year. The expanded hours

in the final days before Christmas are reminiscent of how some retailers typically begin the season on the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday. The strategy comes as stores try to recoup lost sales during a season that’s been hobbled by a number of factors. Despite a recovery economy, many Americans have been struggling with stagnant wages and other issues. On top of that, the time period between the official holiday shopping kickoff on Black Friday and the end of the season is six days shorter than a year ago. That has given Americans less time to shop. Sales at U.S. stores rose 2 percent to $176.7 billion from Nov. 1 through last Sunday,

according to ShopperTrak. That’s a slower pace than the 2.4 percent increase the Chicago store data tracker expects for the entire twomonth season. The disappointing growth pace has put more pressure on retailers to get people into stores in the final days before Christmas. A lot is at stake because they can make up to 40 percent of their revenue in November and December. “It’s make or break for the retailers,” said C. Britt Beemer, chairman of America’s Research Group, a consumer research company. “They have to make up for lost ground.” Retailers hope the expanded hours will make last-minute shopping easier for Ameri-

cans such as Peter Sallese, who have either stayed out of stores so far because of money problems, inclement weather or other issues. The financial executive from New York City said he’s usually finished with shopping by midDecember, but with the shortened season, he fell behind. “Basically, when I came back from Thanksgiving, there was no time,” Sallese said. “Add in the snow and

the freezing weather, and you didn’t feel like shopping.” This isn’t the first year retailers have used marathon hours to lure shoppers. Toys R Us will open from 6 a.m. on Saturday to 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve — the fourth year it’s had marathon hours at the end of the season. And this is the third year Kmart has offered round-the-clock hours: The discounter will open a little more than

one tenth of its 1,100 stores from 6 a.m. on Friday until 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Macy’s began testing its 24-hour strategy in 2006, but it has made tweaks this year. Most Macy’s locations were open for 48 hours straight during the final two days before Christmas last year. But this year, 37 of Macy’s 800 stores will be open for 107 hours from 7 a.m. on Friday to 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

BIKES from Page A1 in the campus bike shop and has been repairing bicycles almost his whole life with his father. Tom Lawrence and his family of eight have been refurbishing bicycles and tricycles with the Evening Optimist Club for Christmas presents for the last 17 years. This year, the club refurbished about 200 bicycles, and they gave them to underprivileged Sumter children for Christmas on Saturday at Westside Baptist Church. “Look at the bright side of everything, and try to make the best come true, that’s one of our mottos,” Lawrence said. With the help of dozens of

volunteers, including members of the USC Sumter Fire Ant baseball team and Boy Scouts from Troop 86, who helped refurbish and collect used bikes from local fire departments, the club put smiles on the faces of dozens of children and their parents. Fundraisers like Cycles for Christmas BBQ Chicken Dinner that raised thousands of dollars for bike repairs were also a great help for the club. It cost about $20 per to fix each bike, he said. The used bikes were donated to Sumter fire departments by community members year round and later collected for repairs by the Evening Optimist Club. The club went through the Sumter School District and used an application process to determine which children need bikes.

The bikes were finally distributed Saturday by a tricycle riding Santa Claus and his elves after a waffle breakfast at West Side Baptist Church. “It makes my Christmas every year, this is my Christmas today,” Tom Lawrence said. “I work on these bikes all year round, and this is my reaping the rewards of that today.” The reward is hundreds of happy children, including 3-year-old twins Jeremiah and Josiah Gary riding away on their very first training-wheelequipped bicycles with big smiles on their faces.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s how area senators voted on major issues in the week ending Dec. 20. The House was not in session. TWO-YEAR BUDGET DEAL: Voting 64 for and 36 against, the Senate on Dec. 18 gave final congressional approval to a two-year, bipartisan spending and revenue plan that will enable Congress to operate in a stable budget environment through September 2015. The measure (HJ Res 59) softens the impact of the blind cuts known as sequestration on defense readiness and critical domestic programs, raises a variety of taxes and fees by $7 billion over 10 years, reduces deficit spending by $23 billion over 10 years and slightly raises discretionary spending to $1.012 trillion in fiscal 2014 and $1.014 trillion in fiscal 2015. Additionally, the bill would save $6 billion over 10 years by trimming cost-of-living increases in the pensions of military retirees who are younger than 62. Among its revenue provisions, the bill would increase airline ticket fees, raise pension contributions by newly hired federal employees, trim certain payments

to Medicare providers, 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. Angus King, I-Maine, said the deal “will finally get us out of the business of governing by crisis, of lurching from crisis to crisis and threats of shutdown and continuing resolutions� and will “demonstrate to the country that we can do our job.� A yes vote was to send the bill to President Obama for his expected signature.

2014 MILITARY BUDGET: Voting 84 for and 15 against, the Senate on Dec. 19 gave final congressional approval to a bill (HR 3304) to authorize a $625.1 billion military budget for fiscal 2014, including $80.7 billion for actions in 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 spaceand land-based 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 endstrengths of 520,000 for the Army, 327,600 for

the Air Force, 323,600 for the Navy and 190,200 for the Marine Corps. The bill keeps the handling of sexual-assault cases within the chain of command where they occur, but ends commanders’ authority to dismiss the findings of a court martial. The bill establishes a special counsel to help survivors of sexual assaults navigate the military legal system and makes it a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice to retaliate against those who report sexual assaults. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., objected to the bill, in part, because he had been denied an opportunity to introduce an amendment that would prohibit the administra-

tion from reducing the U.S. nuclear arsenal without the consent of Congress. A yes vote was to send the bill to President Obama for his expected signature. VOTE S-2 slugged MILITARY SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Graham, Scott Voting no: None Not voting: None

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Poinsett Park also offers First Day Hike I see The Item printed an article about the First Day Hike at Lee State Park, but Poinsett State Park also does a First Day Hike. Poinsett is on Highway 261 and is right here in Sumter County but it is often ignored or forgotten about due to the larger and more active state parks in South Carolina. However, Poinsett offers fishing and camping; it has hiking, biking and equestrian trails; it is home to two passages of the Palmetto Trail, and this past summer it opened up a swimming area. On January 1st there will be a First Day Hike in the morning. There is no fee for the hike or entrance to the park. Poinsett also offers various programs throughout the year. Please, let us not forget that Sumter County is also home to a state park that greatly needs our support.

Baten still doesn’t recognize problems of health care act It is apparent from Friday’s Item that Mr. Eugene Baten still doesn’t understand the problems with the Affordable Care Act. Health care insurers are not charitable organizations, but for-profit businesses. Their rates are set by pooling participants by age, gender and geography. Then they add the expected losses for the pool, sales and administrative cost, plus profit and divide by the number of participants. Knowing this, it should be obvious that all the government mandates will up the cost and the only beneficiaries with be those with serious preconditions (a good thing) and those receiving government subsidies (yet another entitlement). Everyone else will pay more. Historically in this country a full work week has been considered 40 hours, but the ACA defines it as 30, and when the employer mandate kicks in, many workers will find their hours substantially reduced. This is why the Democrats were so happy to postpone the mandate until after the 2014 elections and the uninformed voter realizes what is being done to them. Also, if the government keeps cutting Medicare payments to doctors, more will start opting out, and heath care for the elderly will decline. It should be noted that the Canadian lady that pushed for their government health care program recently died while waiting on health care. Had she lived in the USA, she would likely still be alive. The good news for you, Mr.

Baten, is that now your health care insurance will cover your mammograms, birth control pills, and oops…, if you forget to take them, it will cover your abortion. I sincerely hope you are pleased with your new benefits.

Baten isn’t well informed about new health law

Regarding comments by Mr. Eugene Baten (published in a letter to The Item, Dec. 20, that “Republicans” and I assume he meant every single Republican in the republic, including me) “resort to lies and distortions” and engage in “manipulative behavior” when discussing the Affordable Care Act, I have but one thing to say: “If you like your health care plan you can keep it. Period.” I’m not sure if that statement qualifies as a lie, a distortion, or simply manipulative behavior (all of the above?), but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t made by a Republican.

Re Eugene Baten letter of Friday, Dec. 20: Thank you for your insight into the Obamacare experience of one person you know. I’m impressed someone you know is getting coverage for less than before. You forgot to mention how much the deductible is on that policy. Most of my friends have a minimum of $5,000. A deductible is the part you pay before the insurance company pays anything. After reading your letter, I was left with the opinion you are not very well informed. The greatest downfall of the Obamacare website is it’s not a secure website. I can’t imagine anyone putting all their most personal information on a website that is not secure. Another thing you fail to mention, Obamacare is an insurance program, not a health care program. What it does is let insurance companies ( only a select few) decide what healthcare you can have, who your healthcare provider will be, what hospitals you can use, and how much they will pay. These policies do not cover prescription medications either. The insurance companies involved have decided most medications are too expensive to carry. This president has perpetrated the greatest fraud against the American people in the history of this republic. He lied about the program to get reelected. He lied about keeping the healthcare you have and keeping your doctor. He has taken control of 1/6th of the economy to finance it. That is about 16.66 percent of the economy. So far the website has cost $900 million and still isn’t ready or secure. I understand you haven’t researched this project and you feel anyone that objects to the plan is a racist because Obama is a black man, but race has nothing to do with it. The law is not sustainable, is not “free market”, and places millions of Americans at risk of no insurance. Feel comfortable though. Many Christians like myself pray for folks like you that are led by feelings instead of knowledge on this issue. We understand you can’t help being prejudiced. The only problem I have with Obama is he is a liar and a socialist. If you support those attributes in a president, regardless of skin color, maybe you should reevaluate your own values. Merry Christmas to all The Item readers and keep Jesus in your heart for He is the reason for the season, not all this commercial stuff!

President Obama’s current poll numbers don’t lie Once again, I’m sitting here at my desk, sipping on a cup of “joe” and going through my usual routine of reading the paper, I get to the letters section, and actually busted out laughing. I was laughing so hard, I actually woke my wife up, and my dog thought I was crazy. I actually felt great afterwards. I know they say that “laughter is the best medicine,” but if the Dems find a way to tax something like laughter, well, you know... I actually don’t know where to start in response to Mr. Baten’s letter of Dec. 20. The very first sentence was enough to trigger my laughing fit. “When Republicans resort to lies and distortions. ...” Really? All my life, I thought a lie was when you say something that is totally false. “If you like your insurance company, you can keep your insurance company” is a prime example of a lie. I applaud you, Mr. Baten, for actually taking the time to review Obamacare (by the way, Republicans are not the only ones who use this term, just watch MSNBC). It would explain why you haven’t written a letter to the editor in quite a while. I could go on and on with this discussion, but all I would be doing is saying things that a majority of voters either already knew, or have recently found out.

ALERT from Page A1 movements, but what if he’s in trouble? “We’re all at alert for Santa Claus,� said ACA Director of Operations Lt. Col. Brent Allen of the Air National Guard. “If he’s in trouble, we’re here to help.� The 169th Fighter Wing at McEntire Joint National Guard Base is the primary air support hub for a large portion of the Southeast, Allen said. They will be on alert throughout the night as Santa does his only job. In a news release sent out recently, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Keith “Dolph� Miller, the ACA commander commented, “We’re all big fans of Santa at McEntire, especially at alert. Santa is a pilot, too, and therefore, a kindred spirit. We are thankful to be part of NORAD’s watchful eyes this Christmas and take special pride in knowing that we play a part in his safe passage throughout the Southeast.� Allen helped explain what the alert status means in terms of logistics. “When we’re on alert, it means our F-16s are sitting at the end of the runway, ready to take action at a moment’s notice,� Allen said. Along with fighter pilots, entire maintenance and service crews also re-

RUBY MAE J. TEMONEY Ruby Mae Jefferson Temoney, 76, wife of James E. Temoney, was granted her angel wings and departed this earthly life on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, at Tuomey Regional Medical Center. She was born Nov. 26, 1937, in Mayesville, daughter of the late Henry and Elizabeth Isaac Jefferson. She attended the public schools of Sumter County.

main in standby status when a base is at alert. Everyone in the crew waits to hear a particular order, then act appropriately. “Once the horn is sounded, they scramble,� Allen said. The “scramble� order means that all manned jets must ascend immediately, he explained, specifying there are other statuses that precede alert. “An order nearly everyone is familiar with is ‘battle stations,’� Allen said. “For pilots, that means proceed to your plane and sit in it until you receive further orders.� An initial order that often precedes “scramble� or “battle stations� is known as “runway alert,� in which planes are moved to the runways and crews remain ready

to execute their orders. In sequence, “battle stations� is a much more heightened sense of alert. From how Allen explained it, it’s much like the “ready, set, go� of a race. Each crew and station is much like that of a firehouse, Allen said. “We have maintenance personal and combat personnel on hand,� he said. “They work 24- to 48hour shifts in a building that features bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen and a small gym.� Some might expect the base and its fighters to be at an especially keen alert when such a high-profile and revered man like Santa Claus is in the air, but according to the news release, this is the standard by which the base operates. “McEntire’s Aerospace Control Alert mission is

SCHWARTZ from Page A4 Some things will not be liked. But my goal is to leave the hospital in the best possible position it can be, and be prepared to be, to serve this community in the years to come.â€? And while the number of tasks before Tuomey could be considering daunting — a list that Schwartz says he knows he cannot entirely complete during his tenure — aiding him in all of this is the attitude of the people already working at the hospital. “I think it’s a testimony to the culture that has been established here, and that includes my predecessors,â€? Schwartz said. “Of all the places I’ve been I would rank this place at the top ‌ the moral and the loyalty to the hospital, the commitment to the hospital, is the best asset this hospital has, and it is very high. And if you didn’t have this legal albatross, it would be even higher. So it’s remarkable.â€? Contact Braden Bunch at (803) 7741201.

Roland rides late-year surge for USC BY RYAN WOOD Post and Courier COLUMBIA — Shaq Roland saw the challenge on game film this week as he prepared for the Capital One Bowl. Wisconsin, typical of a Big Ten defense, doesn’t give up anything easy. The Badgers’ cornerbacks crowd the line of scrimmage. They jam. They shove. They grab. Whatever it takes to disrupt a receiver’s timing on pass

it’s going to be a lot of bumpand-run, one-on-one outside. And I think that’s the kind of game I like, one-on-one.” Roland smiled as he spoke. He has no problem accepting the challenge Wisconsin’s defense presents. Lately, no secondary has been able to stop him.

South Carolina wide receiver Shaq Roland (4) has been a consistent weapon for the Gamecocks over the last four games of the season and hopes to continue that against Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.

Manning High’s Darley makes most of limited playing time with 4 tackles in Shrine Bowl

BY AARON BRENNER Post and Courier

BY RUDY JONES Special To The Item SPARTANBURG — Manning High School’s Cameron Darley wasn’t a starter in Saturday’s Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas, but he did his part to help the team of South Carolina all-stars to a 28-23 victory over a North Carolina squad in front of 7,845 at Wofford College’s Gibbs Stadium. The Monarchs star was in on four tackles as a linebacker and also participated on special teams in the annual game to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children, including the Greenville unit. Darley’s first tackle in the second quarter kept the North Carolina team from converting on a third down. His second-down stop of Tarheels running back Elijah Hood at the Sandlappers 6 helped force North Carolina to settle for a field goal in the third quarter and keep the Tarheels from tying the score at 14-14. His other two tackles came in the fourth period. He stopped Hood — North Carolina’s most valuable offensive player — for a 1-yard loss and later brought down Hood after a 1-yard gain.

Manning High linebacker Cam Darley (46) is introduced prior to Saturday’s 77th Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas at Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg. Darley did not start, but was in on four tackles and played on special teams as South Carolina beat North Carolina 28-23.

CLEMSON — Even Steve Fuller admits that, decades later, it still bugs him. His most vivid memory of the 1978 Gator Bowl is that a breakthrough moment for Clemson football is barely noted as such. “I’ve talked to some of my teammates over the years, and I think we were all disappointed the way it ended seems to be the prevailing thought when that game is mentioned,” Fuller said Friday in a phone FULLER interview with The Post and Courier. “It’s always ‘the Woody game.’ ” Ohio State head coach Woody Hayes slugged Clemson middle guard Charlie Bauman on the sideline after Bauman’s interception basically sealed the Tigers’ 17-15 victory over Ohio State. That closed out Clemson at 11-1 and No. 6 in the country, just two years removed from a 5-15-2 two-year stretch. “We worked awfully hard to get to the point where we felt like we had reached a little bit of a national program,” Fuller said. “There was certainly no BCS then, but we were one of the top five or six teams in the country.

Panthers look to silence Brees, Saints in rematch BY STEVE REED The Associated Press

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Carolina defensive end Charles Johnson (95) and the rest of the Panthers defense look to have more success against Drew Brees (9) and the New Orleans Saints today when the two teams meet in Charlotte.

CHARLOTTE — Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott faces a quandary today against the New Orleans Saints in a pivotal game between two 10-4 teams. Does he blitz Drew Brees or not? Brees torched the Panthers for 313 yards and four touchdowns two weeks ago in the Saints’ 31-13 win at the Superdome. Three of those touchdowns came in the sec-

ond quarter when Carolina’s front four failed to get pressure on Brees. The Panthers had better success after adding blitzes in the second half, but by that point it was too late. McDermott said blitzing Brees too much can be a

“slippery slope’’ the Panthers don’t want to go down. “Most great quarterbacks are better when you blitz them because they want to see it,’’ McDermott said. “They want to get the ball out and into the receivers’ hands. Drew’s no different. We’ll have to be smart. We’ll have to cover well if and when we do blitz. But as we all know, to let a great quarterback sit back there and pick you apart, that’s not the way to SEE PANTHERS, PAGE B3

New Hornets logo unveiled CHARLOTTE — Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has unveiled the brand identity the Charlotte Hornets will use after this season. Jordan introduced the team’s primary new logo and word mark — as well as one of the eight alternatives — during a halftime ceremony at Saturday night’s game against the Utah Jazz, saying “You guys asked and we delivered.’’ The primary logo features the purple and teal palette used by the Charlotte Hornets from 1988-2002 with a more aggressive-looking hornet with piercing eyes, a raised antennae, larger wings and pointed stinger. In the logo is a basketball that doubles as the hornet’s body with the Hornets word mark written across the insect. The Bobcats officially become the Hornets the day after their final game this season. JAZZ BOBCATS

88 85

CHARLOTTE — Trey Burke scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and the Utah Jazz snapped the Charlotte Bobcats’ three-game winning streak with an 88-85 victory Saturday night. Burke hit a 3-pointer with 1:38 left to put his team up by three and added a pair of free throws with 10 seconds remaining. Gordon Hayward had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Jazz, who had lost three of their past four games. Derrick Favors added 14 points. Kemba Walker scored 20 points and Al Jefferson had 19 for the Bobcats, who were playing their fourth game in five nights. The victory would have gotten the Bobcats (1315) back to .500 on the season. WIZARDS CELTICS

BOSTON — Trevor Ariza scored 27 points and hit a 3-pointer that capped a fourth-quarter run that carried the Washington Wizards to a 106-99 comeback win over the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Trailing 92-84, Ariza started the 14-1 rally with a jumper from the right corner. John Wall had five of his 20 points in the surge, which was interrupted only by a free throw by Jared Sullinger that gave Boston a 93-91 lead with 3:39 remaining. Then Nene tied the game with a short baseline jumper and Wall gave the Wizards their first lead, 95-93, with a 20-footer with 2:5 to go. Marcin Gortat then blocked Sullinger’s shot and Ariza hit his 3-pointer with 2:25 remaining to put Washington ahead 98-93. Boston was led by Avery Bradley with 26 points. GRIZZLIES KNICKS

NEW YORK — Zach Randolph had 25 points and 15 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 95-87 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Jerryd Bayless scored 11 points, including two free throws to end a Knicks flurry that had trimmed a 19-point deficit to four in the final half-minute.

Augustin scored 18, Tony Snell came on strong in the second half to finish with 17 points, and Chicago prevailed after matching its longest slide in four years under coach Tom Thibodeau. Boozer and Augustin both got off to strong starts as the Bulls built a 17-point halftime lead, and Chicago withstood several pushes down the stretch to come away with the win after dropping 13 of 16. Boozer hit 8 of 14 shots. Augustin converted 4 of 6 3-pointers and added 10 assists. NETS’ LOPEZ OUT WITH BROKEN RIGHT FOOT

NEW YORK — Center Brook Lopez has broken a bone in his right foot again, leaving the Brooklyn Nets without their leading scorer as they try to turn around a disappointing season. The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. Lopez had the same injury, a fractured fifth metatarsal, when he was limited to five games in the 2011-12 season. He underwent surgery following last season to replace a bent screw in the foot. Lopez is averaging 20.7 points and 6.0 rebounds in 17 games. From wire reports

Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall (15) and Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles (9 are key parts of respective high-powered offenses that will clash today when the two teams meet in Philadelphia.

Bears, Eagles meet with high-powered offenses BY ROB MAADDI The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — When Brandon Marshall first saw the Philadelphia Eagles run Chip Kelly’s offense, he didn’t expect them to succeed. “I saw a lot of chaos out there,’’ Marshall said. “I thought: ‘Man, I wouldn’t want to play in that offense. It seems like there’s so much going on.’ I needed to see more, and now, deep in the season, it’s legit. They have special guys and have a special system. It’s definitely a legit system, but at the beginning, it wasn’t for me. It was tough to see. Those guys, it seemed like they were running with their heads cut off. Now

they’ve got it down pat and they’re rolling.’’ Marshall will get a sideline view of Kelly’s up-tempo offense today when the Chicago Bears (8-6) visit Philadelphia (8-6) in a matchup of division leaders. The fourtime Pro Bowl receiver will try to help the Bears outscore the high-flying Eagles. Only Denver has scored more points than Chicago this season, so this could be quite an offensive showdown. Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Marshall and Alshon Jeffery vs. Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. Things could get ugly for a pair of defenses that have struggled. “Chicago might be one of the most talented

offenses we face,’’ Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. “This is overall our biggest test.’’ Both teams have a chance to clinch a division title. If the Cowboys lose to Washington, the Eagles win the NFC East and secure the No. 3 seed with a victory. The Bears would win the NFC North and lock up the No. 3 seed with a win and if Green Bay loses to Pittsburgh and Detroit loses to the New York Giants. There’s also a chance the game won’t mean anything win or lose for the Eagles except a potential No. 3 or 4 seed. If the Cowboys beat the Redskins, the Eagles must beat Dallas in Week 17 to win the division.

New faces, same Ravens-Pats rivalry BY DAVID GINSBURG The Associated Press BALTIMORE — Ray Lewis is retired, Bernard Pollard is playing elsewhere, and Tom Brady won’t have Ed Reed to kick around anymore. Much like the Baltimore Ravens, the New England Patriots have also undergone a radical transformation since the teams met last January in the AFC title game. BRADY Brady’s targets no longer include Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker or Brandon Lloyd, and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is done for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. Despite the absence of these key players, Sunday’s rematch between

the Ravens and Patriots should have a familiar feel because both teams have plenty incentive. With a victory, New England (10-4) can clinch a fifth straight AFC East title. Baltimore (8-6) is seeking a fifth consecutive win and will remain in the hunt for the AFC North crown by beating the Patriots in the latest installment of this rivalry between teams that perennially rank among the finest in the NFL. Brady saw the Ravens FLACCO twice last season — and lost both times. After a 31-30 defeat in September, the Patriots fell to Baltimore 28-13 in the AFC championship game behind quarterback Joe Flacco. Two weeks later, the Ravens beat San Francisco in the Super Bowl.

go, either.’’ It’s a game that will likely determine the NFC South champion and a first-round bye in the NFC. And playing at home is of particular interest to these two teams during the postseason. The Saints are 7-0 at the Superdome; the Panthers are 6-1 at home, with their only loss coming in a close defeat to the Seahawks in the season opener. Seattle merely has the league’s best record. The Panthers haven’t been to the playoffs since 2008, and quarterback Cam Newton is among several players eager for a trip to the postseason. “We’re looking at it as, `Why not us?’’’ Newton said. “... If we do what we have to do. If we win this game, we have our confirmation of being in the playoffs.’’ There is the added motivation of beating the Saints, who handed Carolina its only loss in the past 10 games. “We really got embarrassed a couple of weeks ago,’’ Newton said. “This is our opportunity to prove to ourselves that we are who we think we are.’’ Five things to know about the Saints-Panthers matchup PLAYOFF SCENARIOS

The Saints clinch the division and a first-round bye with a win. They can still lose and earn a postseason berth if Arizona loses to Seattle. The Panthers clinch a playoff berth with a win in either of their games, but can’t secure the division title this week. If Carolina loses, it still can clinch a spot in the postseason if Arizona and San Francisco both lose. BREES’ BLIND SIDE

The Saints have benched left tackle Charles Brown and handed

B3

the starting job to Terron Armstead, a rookie from Arkansas-Pine Bluff who has never taken an NFL snap on offense. When the right-handed Brees drops back to pass, as he has done on about two-thirds of Saints offensive plays this season, Armstead has his blind side. Armstead’s main job will entail blocking defensive end Greg Hardy, who has eight sacks this season. “Just like anybody, there’s gonna be things that happen to Terron because he’s young,’’ Saints right tackle Zach Strief said. “But at the end of the day I think we have more than enough confidence that Terron will be a good player.’’ CHANGE O’FOOT

The Saints made a significant late-season change in the kicking game, releasing Garrett Hartley and bringing in 36-year-old Shayne Graham. Graham has been on the rosters of nine other NFL teams during a 13-year career, but has not kicked in a game since Jan. 13, when he was with Houston. He made field goals of 27 and 55 yards in a playoff loss at New England. HARD ROAD

While the Saints have looked unbeatable in the Superdome, going 7-0 with five double-digit victories, they are 3-4 on the road, with a pair of double-digit losses in each of their last two games away from the Big Easy. “Obviously we’re not very satisfied or happy with our performance on the road as of late,’’ Brees said. “We played well on the road early in the season. We just haven’t been able to put it together the last few times.’’ RIDING DEANGELO

The Panthers will again be without Jonathan Stewart, out with a torn MCL. That means DeAngelo Williams will carry the load. The 30-year-old Williams had 168 total yards from scrimmage last week against the New York Jets, including a 72-yard touchdown reception.

He caught four touchdowns in the Gamecocks’ final four games, including a 9-yard, tiptoeing reception on the first play of the second quarter against Clemson. The score gave USC a lead it never relinquished. For Roland, it was the type of catch that revealed how good he can be. “Man, we were actually watching it today, he barely got a foot in.

land caught a 65-yard touchdown on the Gamecocks’ third snap of the season. At the beginning and end of the fall, Roland was a productive member of USC’s offense. The former South Carolina Mr. Football recovered from his suspension to post better numbers across the board compared to his freshman season. He finished with 19 catches for 343 yards and five touchdowns. He led the Gamecocks with 18.05 yards per catch, which also ranked fifth in the SEC. Most importantly, Roland was consistent in the season’s final month. In three of November’s four games, he had multiple catches with at least 40 yards and a touchdown. “I’m pretty comfortable with everything,� Roland said. “It’s just me going out there and working hard every day and doing what I need to do. That goes for every one of our receivers. Everybody knows they can play. They’re just waiting for the chance.�

position to probably jump all the way up top, but there were no undefeated teams that year. “We got in the situation where the game was in hand — then that (melee) kind of took over. Even to this day, I think that’s what everybody remembers.� It was also Fuller’s last game of his storied Clemson career. The senior and thirdteam All-American engineered two long touchdown drives — 15 plays, 80 yards in the second quarter, and 18 plays, 83 yards in the third — to defeat the vaunted Buckeyes. Memories of that game return this winter as Clemson prepares for its second meeting with Ohio State on Jan. 3 in the Orange Bowl. While it was the first coaching victory for Danny Ford, it was the 21st and final win of Fuller’s quarterbacking career. Lasting 10 years in the NFL with four different franchises — he was Jim McMahon’s backup for the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears — Fuller was one of three charter members in the Clemson Ring of Honor, joining coaches Banks McFadden and Frank Howard. “At the time, Clemson wasn’t very good until Steve Fuller got here,� Ford said Dec. 11. “Well, Clemson had been good — coach Howard had been to the Orange Bowl once, they’d been undefeated once, went to several bowl games. But Steve was so good, and he was so smart.� The way Fuller sees it, the Tigers’ buildup to a national title in 1981 didn’t start that Gator Bowl year. It was the previous season, when they flipped a bad 1976 (3-6-2, 0-4-1 in the ACC) into a productive 1977 (8-3-1, 4-1-1, conference runner-up), which put the program back in a bowl game for the first time in 18 years, though the

South Carolina’s receiving corps is far from toothless, but it lost depth Friday when it was announced junior Damiere Byrd will miss the Capital One Bowl with arthroscopic knee surgery. Byrd, the Gamecocks’ secondleading receiver, was injured in practice this week. Byrd caught 33 passes for 575 yards and four touchdowns this season. Along with Roland, the duo gave USC two receivers capable of stretching the field vertically, creating big plays in the passing game. Now, even more responsibility will be on Roland’s hands. It’s an opportunity for Roland to carry his momentum into the offseason. Still young, Roland knows he must continue improving in the fu-

Tigers lost 34-3 in the 1977 Gator Bowl. “I’m sure having a good finish that (1978) year helped,� Fuller said. “I wouldn’t say it was the pivotal point, but even going back to the year before was probably more important in getting that thing turned around.� Fuller is the only Clemson athlete to win the NCAA’s Top Five Award and to become ACC player of the year twice in football. He also was a two-time firstteam academic All-American, one of three Tigers ever to be an All-American in football and academia the same year. “He was academically gifted. He was smart as he could be, could throw the football, run the option and do a lot of things,� Ford said. “Good golfer, good at basketball, just a good athlete.� These days in Bluffton, Fuller can’t play as much hoops as he’d like — injuries slowed him down five or six years ago — but he still works on his golf game around coaching high school football at Hilton Head Prep School and dabbling in real estate development. Fuller returns to campus for 2-3 big games a year at Death Valley; he saw the Georgia win and Florida State loss this fall. His daughter, Alexandra, graduated from Clemson last year and will attend the Orange Bowl next week. Steve’s not sure if he’ll make the trip. “I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. I would like to. I just don’t know,� Fuller said. “I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow. I’ll probably wait a few days after Christmas to make the decision.�

ture. Stephon Gilmore, Marcus Lattimore and Jadeveon Clowney — three of the program’s four recent South Carolina Mr. Footballs — have promising futures in the NFL. How will Roland get there? Near the end of Wednesday’s practice, Roland was asked how this season could be used as a springboard. “Looking to next season, I just want to work hard, get better every day and do whatever this man has to say,� Roland said, placing a hand on receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr.’s shoulder. “Next season?� Spurrier Jr. asked. “It’s this season.� “Oh, yeah,� Roland said. “We’ve still got one more game.� One more game. And one more big challenge.

n Dec. 26, when Christians are just beginning to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, many African-Americans will observe both Christmas and Kwanzaa, a seven-day reaffirmation of their ancestors and their heritage. Only 47 years old, Kwanzaa is an observance that is neither religious nor political, as Natalie Williams explained to members of the Westside Neighborhood Association at their December meeting. Williams is the founder and director of the Sankofa Connection, an organization that encourages individuals “never to forget those who have enriched our own lives,” she said. “We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; so we understand why and how we came to be who we are today.” That philosophy is very much like that of Kwanzaa, which Williams explained was founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga,

Americans, their ancestors and culture and applying the seven traditional principles to modern day life.” Williams brought with her the seven symbols of Kwanzaa, each related to one of the seven days, which are in turn dedicated to the observance of one of the seven principles. “The seven days of Kwanzaa are Dec. 26 through Jan. 1,” she said. “It is based on an agricultural celebration from Africa called the ‘first fruits,’ which are times of the harvests and a special time to give reverence to our Creator and the creation.

A bridegroom’s guide to getting involved (sort of) BY DAN ZEVIN Associated Press Generations ago, planning a wedding was 100 percent the bride’s job, but in today’s age of gender equity, it’s a mere 99 percent. Yes, we modern men are more involved than ever, but many of us are still left wondering, “How can I take a more active role in the stress and panic of planning the happiest day of my life?” Gentlemen, you’ve come to the right guy. Groom Job 1: Plan the Menu. When it comes to cuisine, the crucial question is: cash bar or open bar? Once you’ve chosen the latter, tackle other meal-related matters. Will you keep your open bar open throughout the reception or for the first hour only? (Hint: throughout the reception.) What about hors d’oeuvres? Will your guests be sipping them through bottles, glasses or cans? Remember, you can’t please everyone. Therefore, it’s best to inscribe BYOB under RSVP on your wedding invitations. You may also want to consider serving some food. Groom Job 2: Book the Music. Wedding musicians are expensive, so cut costs by asking your groomsmen to lip synch and air guitar to a playlist you’ll download from iTunes. Alternatively, you can hire a deejay. A deejay is an individual who sees your wedding as an opportunity to act out his fantasies of being Eddie Van Halen, Rock God, by dancing in place to all his favorite hits.

Remind him that it is your special day, not his. Inform him that the song you’ve chosen for your first dance isn’t actually “Hot For Teacher.” Request that he blend into the background, perhaps by streaming his set to the dance floor from his booth in the banquet hall boiler room. Groom Job 3: Manage the Guest List. Tradition dictates that the groom cut everyone off his list to make more room for his bride’s list. This is easier than it sounds. Just review all the people on your list and think of one reason not to invite them. Let’s start with your best man, “Bob.” Remember that time “Bob” borrowed your drill and returned it without recharging the battery? Put a big red slash through “Bob’s” name right now. Before you know it, the only one left on your list will be you. To demonstrate what a generous husband you’ll be, cut yourself from the list, too. Dude, you’ll be spending the rest of your life with your bride. Is it really going to kill you if you’re not together on one lousy day? Groom Job 4: Help Register For Gifts. From the male point of view, there are three kinds of gifts: 1. things you already have; 2. things you don’t need; and 3. bowls. To help your guests select stuff you actually want, you may be tempted to register at offbeat places like Sports Authority and Home Depot. This is fine as long as you realize that no one’s going to get you anything from these places. They are going to get you bowls. So go help your

bride pick out punch bowls, bisque bowls, bowls to hold other bowls. If you don’t, you’ll miss out on the most rewarding groom job of all: returning them for a full cash refund as soon as you get back from your honeymoon. Groom Job 5: Plan the Honeymoon. Choosing a destination typically falls to the man, which explains why many couples are slapped with steep penalty fees upon cancelling their flights to the National Baseball

Hall of Fame. Remember, your honeymoon is a time to rest, to recuperate, to experience the phenomenon of everyone being uncharacteristically nice to you. Groom: Excuse me, flight attendant, do you think we can have two peanuts instead of one? Flight Attendant: What does this look like, Chez Panisse? Groom: We are on our honeymoon. Flight Attendant: Right

rs. Carrie Heriot received word from the War Department on Oct. 10, 1918, that her son, James D. Heriot, had been killed in action on the battlefields of France. James Davison Heriot was born on Nov. 2, 1890, in Providence, S.C., then a part of Sumter County. He was about 28 years old when he lost his life in combat. Little information concerning his death, other than that he was killed by enemy fire, was relayed to the family. They were told that additional details would follow. Heriot was a member of Company I, 118th Infantry, and 30th Division and was engaged in action in France. After his heroic death at the battle of Vaux-Andigny, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by Gen. John J. Pershing, but this distinction was later changed to the Medal of Honor. Sammy The Army provided the WAY following information describing the action that led to his death. His citation reads as follows: “Corporal Heriot, with four other soldiers, organized a combat group and attacked an enemy machine-gun nest which had been inflicting heavy casualties on his company. In the advance two of his men were killed, and because of the heavy fire on all sides, the remaining two sought cover. Unmindful of the hazard attached to the mission, Corporal Heriot, with fixed bayonet, charged the machine gun, making his way through the fire for a distance of 30 yards forcing the enemy to surrender. During this exploit he received several wounds to his arm and later in

Sharpe, in charge of the Southeastern Department of the Army with headquarters in Charleston, made the presentation in a formal, quiet ceremony. The medal was presented at the residence of Mrs. H.T.

KWANZAA from Page C1 love, for friendship, for the elders, for children, for family, community and culture.” Williams said the terminology used in Kwanzaa is in Swahili, “a widely spoken African language.” She then gestured toward a table covered in symbols used in the celebration of Kwanzaa, starting with the mkeka, or straw mat, “the symbol of our tradition and history, the foundation.” The corn, or muhindi, represents the children, she said, “one ear for each child in the home. This is because corn represents reproduction. The children are our heirs ... responsible for preserving our legacy.” “The mazao is the fruit, which represents the gathering of the first fruits of the harvest, which is what Kwanzaa means,” Williams said. She then quoted from Exodus 23: 16 and 19: And the feast of the harvest and the first fruits of labor, which thou has sown in the field: and the feast of in-gatherings, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labors out of the field. ... The first of the first fruits of the land, we shall bring into the house of the Lord. Other symbols used in the seven-day observance include Zawadi, the gifts, which are given to children on the seventh day, Jan. 1. Williams said the gifts usually include books, “to represent a commitment to education.

get a gift anyway. Kwanzaa doesn’t work that way. In order for the children to get gifts, they have to make a commitment. They might do chores for the

elderly in the community or in their own homes, offer to keep their community clean, make good grades. So when Kwanzaa 2013 comes, they will get a Zawadi. “It has to be earned. It teaches them personal growth and how to achieve things, if they keep their word.” After explaining all seven symbols, Williams moved on to talk about the seven principles of Kwanzaa, ending with Imani, faith. “It is in our capacity to live righteously,” she said of Imani. The seven days of Kwanzaa, each to honor a principle, begin with Umoja on Dec. 26, a day to acknowledge unity: “We are together in all things.” The sixth principle, observed on Karamu, Dec. 31, is Kuumba, or creativity. “Karamu means feast,” Williams said, “and young and old share food, music, memories, dance, poetry and more. It’s usually a pot luck with traditional African foods.” She asked, “What African foods can you bring? You’re already cooking and eating them. Cucumbers, lettuce, okra, peanuts – these and many other foods originated in the motherland.” The Karamu is a spiritual and joyous occasion, Williams said, during which all the principles of Kwanzaa are honored. “It’s the time the community gets together to honor the Creator for the past year’s accomplishments.” For more information on Kwanzaa or Sankofa, contact Williams at (803) 406-0832. You can also visit the official Kwanzaa website, www.officialkwanzaawebsite.org.

Mrs. W.B. Boyle, local Heart Sunday chairwoman, said it is anticipated that volunteers in this community will complete their residential visits on the same day. Each of the volunteers will have then called on from 15 to 25 neighbors, distributing information designed to guard their hearts and health and receiving gifts for the Heart Fund. Shoppers rushing to plaza — Huge crowds have been pouring into the new Palmetto Plaza Shopping Center since its grand opening two days ago. Backers of Sumter’s first shopping center reported today they were “overjoyed” at the public’s response to this new venture. Last night the 500-car parking area was filled to capacity, with more cars spilling into adjoining streets. Traffic along Guignard Drive was particularly heavy between 8 and 9 p.m. as Sumter shoppers turned out to “see what’s new.” Building permits reach new high — Building permits issued last year for city construction, additions and alterations totaled more than $500,000 above 1962 construction. In the yearly building report recently issued by Building Official J.H. Delk, construction for the past year amounted to $2,852,869. Guignard-Miller to get traffic light — Guignard Drive at Miller Road, site of several serious traffic accidents over the past six months, will soon have traffic lights. In a report received today at City Hall from the State Highway Department it was recommended that a semi-actuated signal control with eight oneway three-section signal heads be erected at the intersection. Merchants announce winners — Martin G. Haneck of Sumter was the winner of a four-day trip to the World’s Fair at the Palmetto Plaza grand opening. The all-expenses-paid trip for two was awarded after a drawing Saturday night at the shopping center. It is sponsored by the Palmetto Plaza Mer-

area considered by many as the future site of a civic center. The building, Sumter’s first commercial office space in decades, will rise soon on a plot located at 107-109 Canal Street behind the Sumter County Court House. Several old houses will make way for the structure. Young pilot “concerned” — “I’ve never been scared, only concerned in rough spots,” said 18-year-old Walter Johnson, who is a licensed commercial pilot for Sumter Airways. According to E.H. Lynam Jr., manager of Sumter Airways, the youth is the youngest he knows in 32 years to get a commercial license in this part of the state. And Lynam should know about these things because he’s been flying since 1932. Chandler to lead Gardenmakers — Mrs. Frank Chandler was elected president of the Gardenmakers Club at their meeting Friday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Abram Brody. First vice-president is Mrs. Robert L. Ramsey, second vice-president, Mrs. J. Perrin Lawson. Mrs. Cliff McLeod was chosen secretary and Mrs. K.P. Forester, treasurer. Mrs. F.W. Hartin and Mrs. LeRoy Davis were named to the executive board. Mrs. Herbert Rosefield was elected alternate representative in the Council of Garden Clubs. Mrs. E.W. Dabbs presided in the absence of the president, Mrs. Riley A. Bradham. Sports news — Sumter’s Gamecocks ran into a hot-shooting bunch of Falcons at Columbia last night and limped away with an 85-61 defeat, their first since the Dreher loss. Sumter guard Ray Ardis came up with an 18point effort. Coach Charlie Hodgin, disappointed at losing by such a wide margin, is taking his boys to Charlotte today for a basketball clinic at 2 p.m. They will stick around to see the college doubleheader program tonight. Last game for Bird seniors — Displaying

Some of the symbols of Kwanzaa, celebrated Dec. 26 through Jan. 1 include fruit, candles, cup and straw mat. Williams explained how these and the three other symbols relate to the week-long Kwanzaa observance.

chants Assn. Haneck, who hails from Watertown, N.Y., was recently discharged from the Air Force, having spent two years at Shaw AFB. Accompanying him on the trip will be his wife, the former Virginia Hodge of Sumter. Supreme Court upholds injunction — The State Supreme Court has upheld an injunction against the City of Sumter restraining it from condemnation procedures on Tuomey Hospital property along Sumter Street. A temporary injunction was issued last May by Third Circuit Judge James Hugh McFaddin stopping condemnation procedures by the city against hospital property which would be used in right-of-way for the widening of Sumter Street. Outstanding Young Man named – Dan F. Laney, Jr., 32-year-old state legislator, attorney, banker and civic leader, was named Lee County’s Outstanding Young Man of the Year last night by the Bishopville Junior Chamber of Commerce. Cal Johnson was named Jaycee of the Year. John Bell, general manager of Bishopville Finishing Co., was guest speaker. His talk covered the past, present and future of Lee County and Bishopville. Laney is a native Lee Countian. He graduated from Bishopville High School in 1948 and attended The Citadel three years. He graduated in two and a half years from the University of South Carolina Law School in 1954 with an LLB degree. Beauty queens — Miss Sandra Andrews was named Miss Medical College in a recent beauty contest in Charleston. The daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Charles Andrews Jr., she is in her sophomore year as a nursing student. First runner-up was another Sumter girl, Miss Rhetta Sydnor, a freshman in the Medical College School of Nursing. Downtown Sumter to get new building — A new office building will be erected in an

their wares before the home folks for the last time tonight are four senior members of the Sumter Gamecock basketball troupe. These four upperclassmen will start tonight’s final home game of the season in accordance with Coach Charlie Hodgin’s tradition. This gives Jim Seller a starting guard berth, as James Scarborough steps aside. Tommy Edens, a junior, will be the only non-senior starter. Ray Ardis, Wayne Robertson, and Dillard Thompson will all be bowing out in this game with Lancaster’s Blue Hurricanes. Lincoln cagers end season — The Lincoln High School Bulldogs will be gunning for their 12th victory of the season tomorrow night when they play host to an improved Howard High five from Georgetown. The Bulldogs took it on the chin when the teams met earlier this year by a score of 51-50. Since this time the visitors have improved tremendously. They have lost only to Whittimore of Conway and they know their high conference standing will be determined by what they do against the Bulldogs… At the movies:The Sumter Theatre this week shows “Love with the Proper Stranger” with Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen; “Seven Days In May” starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Frederic March and Ava Gardener. The Carolina Theater is showing “Sundays and Cybele,” “Surf Party” with Bobby Vinton, Patricia Morrow and Jackie DeShannon; and “Womanhunt.” .

ELF ON A SHELF E

veryone who is anyone knows about Elf on the Shelf. And if you don’t, you’ve been living under a rock. In homes across America, the Elf on the Shelf finds himself in many different places during the holiday season — and lately some of those places may be considered inappropriate by some. What some don’t know is the origin of the popular Elf on the Shelf. According to ElfontheShelf.com, the infamous toy is “a special scout elf sent from the North Pole to help Santa Claus manage his naughty and nice lists.” A family adopts (or in most cases, buys) and

names the elf, and it receives its Christmas magic so it can fly to the North Pole each night to tell Santa about the family’s daily activities. The elf always returns by sunrise and perches itself in a different place in the family’s home. Children are not allowed to touch the elf, and he is not allowed to speak when the family is awake; he simply watches and listens. The elf’s story is told in the book by the same name written by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell. There are a number of elves that have found a home in the Sumter County area. To join in

on the fun, stop by Books-A-Million in Sumter, which has been selling the book and toy all holiday season, according to an employee on Friday. The bookstore is selling the product for $29.95. In the meantime, here are a few elves that have been hanging out in some of our readers’ homes this season. — Raytevia Evans

ATV’S, UTV’S & DIRT BIKES

to the first doe and began to feed, facing me! Now what? As a bowhunter, I know that a shot at the upper side of the neck and chest is almost impossible to pull off. There’s just too much bone between the arrow and the vital area. What I need is a broadside shot at the rib cage. One of the does finally pulled out of the line and took up a station behind the others, but was intently watching something that was in the fire lane leading out of the clover. Within a matter of seconds the rest of them were focused on whatever it was as well. They didn’t spook and run off, but they all turned at about the same moment and trotted to the path into the woods. I suppose it was a coyote, or maybe a buck, that had their interest; whatever it was, they wanted no part of it. I have to admit that at one point during the encounter, while I was watching four does all lined up in a row, that I wished, just for an instant, that I had my rifle. Of course, at 15 yards I’m not sure they would have been in focus in the scope. It was nice to see them in any event and I’m sure I’ll get back to the ground blind before the season ends. Maybe I will take the pistol next time; at 15 yards it would be hard to miss. Before we meet again, we will celebrate one of the two most important Christian holidays of the year, Christmas! And as much as we all like to give and receive gifts, let’s keep in mind that the good Lord gave us the perfect Gift on that day and that is the only reason for the holiday. It’s not a “winter festival;” it is the celebration of the birth of Christ. I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!

Chance encounter

afield & afloat

really can’t remember the last time I hunted deer with a rifle. I’m pretty sure it was in the middle of the 1990s, but I just can’t remember when I put it down. My son, Robert, has been in possession of my rifle for a couple of years now, so I don’t have a rifle to shoot, even if I wanted to. I have toyed with the idea of using a pistol but, as of now, that’s just a thought in the back of my mind. I’m a bowhunt- Earle er, plain and simWOODWARD ple. I started hunting with a bow in the early ‘90s, which would make it somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-plus years ago. Seldom, if ever, have I missed the gun. There is just something about the bow. You have to be in close, which in my way of thinking means you have to pay special attention to the details. You can’t stink and you’ve got to avail yourself of all the camouflage that you can lay your hands on. Quiet is the name of the game, full stealth mode. So far this year, and with only a week and a half remaining in the season, it is unlikely to change. I’ve taken one deer and missed another. The one I did get was a medium-sized doe, so more meat for the freezer would be welcomed. I’ll try to the very end. The other day I decided I would head out to the hunting club, sit in the ground blind for a little while and then retrieve the trail camera and move it to another location. I really had little

confidence in the afternoon, but if I’m going to be there to get a camera, I might as well hunt. The ground blind is on the eastern side of our clover patch and with a south wind, it was perfect. Most of the deer come from the woods on the western side, so the wind would be taking my scent away from them. I had recently purchased a new chair for the ground blind. Up until this point, I had been sitting on a dove stool with a back on it. The bar across the front of the stool started to react with the back of the legs about 15 minutes into the sit, and that caused an awful lot of movement and discomfort. The new chair was made especially for ground blinds and has some short arm rests built in as well. I threw the old stool out the back of the blind and erected the armchair. Oh, pure comfort, and it swivels! Like I said, I was really not expecting any action on this property because the deer have started moving only at night, but like a good little soldier, I dutifully sat there in my comfy chair. She came from the south end of the clover patch, out of the volunteer pines that have taken root over the years. She was a nice, fat doe of about 110 pounds of so, perfect for the freezer. She walked across the patch, reversed her course and stopped directly in front of the blind at 15 yards. The only problem we now had is that she was facing directly at me, head down and munching sweet clover. Oops, here comes another one! Yep, a total of three more does came strolling out of the pines, one behind the other and everyone of them walked right up

Agriculture the most promising market for drones PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Idaho farmer Robert Blair isn’t waiting around for federal aviation officials to work out rules for drones. He and a friend built their own, outfitting it with cameras and using it to monitor his 1,500 acres. Under 10 pounds and 5 feet long nose to tail, the aircraft is the size of a turkey and Blair uses it to get a birds-eye view of his cows and fields of wheat, peas, barley and alfalfa. “It’s a great tool to collect information to make better decisions, and we’re just scratching the surface of what it can do for farmers,” said Blair, who lives in Kendrick, Idaho, roughly 275 miles north of Boise. While Americans are abuzz about Amazon’s plans to use self-guided drones to deliver packages, most future unmanned aircraft may operate far from the nation’s large population centers. Experts point to agriculture as the most promising commercial market for drones because the technology is a perfect fit for large-scale farms and vast rural areas where privacy and safety issues are less of a concern. Already, farmers, researchers and companies are developing unmanned aircraft systems equipped with cameras and other sensors to survey crops, monitor for disease or precision-

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A multi-rotor hexacopter, an unmanned aircraft, was purchased by Robert Blair to monitor his farm in Kendrick, Idaho. Experts say agriculture is the most promising commercial market for drones, the technology a perfect fit for America’s large-scale farms and vast rural areas where privacy and safety issues are less of a concern.

spray pesticides and fertilizers. Drones, also known as UAVs, are already used overseas in agriculture, including Japan and Brazil. And the possibilities are endless: Flying gizmos could be used to ward off birds from fields, pollinate trees, do snow surveys to forecast water supply, monitor irrigation, or plant and harvest crops. The technology could revolutionize agriculture, farmers say, by boosting crop health, improving field management practices, reducing costs and increasing yields. So far, drones have been used mainly by the military. Interest is booming in finding other uses for them, but the possibilities are limited because of regulations on the use of airspace and privacy

concerns. The Federal Aviation Administration does not allow drones’ commercial use. Businesses and researchers can only apply for a special, experimental airworthiness certificate for research and development, flight demonstrations or crew training. The FAA does allow public agencies — including law enforcement and other governmental agencies — to get a certificate of authorization to operate unmanned aircraft in civil airspace. About a dozen sheriff’s offices, police and fire departments, as well as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, have been allowed to use drones. The move has raised concerns about privacy and government surveillance, leading to drone

privacy bills being introduced in most states this year and about a dozen states passing laws, most to limit drone surveillance by law enforcement. Those concerns, in turn, have tempered interest in developing unmanned aircraft technology for police and other crime-fighting agencies — leading drone manufacturers and researchers to focus on agriculture instead, said Josh Brungardt, director of unmanned systems at PARADIGM, a Bend, Ore.based drone research company. “A small UAV flying over a field with nothing around it doesn’t create a privacy issue,” he said. “We’re talking about an operating atmosphere that’s much more benign.” Last year, Congress directed the FAA to grant unmanned aircraft access to U.S. skies by September 2015. The agency is in the midst of developing operational guidelines for drone use, but it said the process would take longer than Congress expected. Next year, the agency plans to propose a rule for small unmanned aircraft, but it declined to discuss the rule. In the meantime, the FAA is also working to choose by the end of December six drone test sites across the country.

FISHING REPORT Santee Cooper System Bream: Good. Captain Steve English reports that bream fishing continues to be strong in the canal and 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, especially in 32-40 feet of water. Fish minnows about 18-22 feet deep. 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 been caught in good numbers in the bigger creeks on Lake Marion. Folks have had success fishing from docks and piers in late evening or from daylight until 9 o’clock. Striped Bass: Fair. Captain Jim Glenn reports that striper fishing is fair, although by most accounts there are not many keeper fish being caught. There is some schooling activity when folks cast jigs and spoons to visible fish. Drifting live herring or free-lining is also producing some stripers. In the Cooper River fish are feeding around grass beds and traditional mouths of the rice fields on the dropping tide. 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. Fish are not all the way up the rivers yet but they are moving that way. The most productive patterns have been fishing down-lines from the surface down to 30 feet, free-lining herring and trolling bucktails. There has been some schooling activity, and the birds are starting to show up and point the way to the fish. Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the bite has been consistent on Murray recently. Drifting with cut herring over main lake humps that top out at 30-50 feet has been most productive, varying from day to day as fish change areas and feeding habits. The catch has been good numbers of big channel catfish, with bonus blues and flatheads mixed in from time to time. 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 good on Lake Greenwood, and has taken some big weights to win recent tournaments. Fish are starting to move into the backs of creeks. For now the best pattern is fishing jigs around docks in the middle part of the lake. Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the channel catfish bite on Lake Greenwood is consistent, but the average size of fish continues to be small this year. Drifting in 18-35 feet along the old river channel has been most productive, and fish have also been caught in some of the bigger feeder creek channels on the lower end of the lake. 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. Both anchoring on and drifting across ledges are working equally well. 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. Spotted

and largemouth bass can be caught on jigging spoons and drop shot rigs. To target largemouth, head for the trees and fish around standing timber in 30-50 feet of water. Crawl soft plastics through the tops of trees falling to 15-20 feet. Crappie/ perch: Fair to good. 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. 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 where they could be caught a few weeks ago. 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 with minnows being the best bait. White Perch: Very good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that at the top of Clark’s Hill schools of white perch are being found on the bottom near 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. Captain Sasser’s boats have been using a 1/8 ounce egg sinker and about 20 feet of line between the board and the bait. Fishing has been good in the Amity area, and the upper part of the lake below the Russell Dam. 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, but the blues seem to be especially keyed in on depth changes. They are holding in small schools near the river drops or humps with sharp inclines as well as at the mouths of major creeks bordering 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 getting bunched up around deeper channel swings and in their traditional winter haunts. 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 have been found out in the middle on the main lake and up the major rivers and creeks including the Seneca, Tugaloo and 6 and 20 Creek. 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.
