Lawyers file pardon in Stinney case

Dillon Park shut down

Application a backup plan if retrial efforts fail BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com While the families on both sides of a 70-year-old murder case await a judge’s ruling on a motion to grant George Stinney a retrial, another avenue may still exist to overturn the young teen’s 1944 death sentence. In case the judge’s decision goes against Stinney’s relatives, leaving in place the 14-year-old’s conviction for the murder of two young Alcolu girls that sent the youngster to the death chamber decades ago, lawyers have also filed an application to grant Stinney a pardon from the governor. But both they and the family remain committed to the first option. “This is a PETE O’BOYLE backup plan,” said Stinney SCDPPPS spokesman family attorney Steve McKenzie. The small Clarendon County community of Alcolu was in an uproar in March 1944 when the bodies of Betty June Binnicker and Mary Thames were discovered in a shallow ditch, each of the girls having suffered a mortal head wound. Authorities soon accused George Stinney, a local teen who was apparently the last person to see the girls alive, and the boy was quickly convicted and sentenced to the electric chair. The case, involving one of the youngest defendants ever put to death by the state, has since been cited by supporters as a high-profile case of racial injustice. Stinney was black, his two alleged victims white. While it could still be weeks until a ruling is handed down on the retrial motion, attorneys have also filed to have Stinney’s record cleared by the state Department of Probation, Parole

‘If the judge overturns the verdict and orders a retrial, then a pardon becomes moot. You can’t pardon someone who’s innocent.’

Area in use as headquarters for utility workers restoring power to residents after winter storm BY TYLER SIMPSON tyler@theitem.com Frequenters of Dillon Park will have to look elsewhere for their exercise and leisure needs for a while. The park has been temporarily closed off to the public because power crews are using the park as a base of operations for restoring power lost as a result of the winter storm. According to Sumter County Emergency Management Director Erik Hayes, Duke Energy Progress, along with workers from other power companies, has established a base camp at Dillon Park to assist residents that have lost power. The company has asked the public to refrain from entering the park

CEO: Clarendon Health continues to make changes BY JADE REYNOLDS jade@theitem.com It’s been a busy year for Clarendon Health System’s new CEO, and this year is shaping up to be another busy one. “It was a hard year last year,” Richard Stokes said. “We had some rough waters. We had 24 (staff members) let go. We’re down 50 with positions that were not refilled. Our employees have done really well. We have the best staff.” He took over last January when Edward R. Frye retired after 24 years as CEO, but Stokes wasn’t exactly new to the organization. He started as the chief financial officer in May of 2003 and has served as chief operating officer as well. Besides labor reductions, the hospital also saw reallocation of employees based on labor standards and productivity as well as on filling new areas the health system did not have last year, Stokes said. The administration also got away from contract workers and moved everything in-house, he said. He sought employees’ thoughts along the way. “With a change in leadership comes a change in how we do stuff,” Stokes said. “One of the first things I did was add the clinical perspective. To make the best, most informed decision, we talked to nurses, therapists and all to get their input on it. You have to have accountability to your people, to your budget, your patients and your providers — in this case, our doctors. You want the department heads to take ownership, to see how their piece fits into the big machine.”

‘We want to be the best doggone community hospital or medical system and offer the best service possible to the community.’ PAUL SCHUMACHER Clarendon Health System chief operating officer To help in these endeavors, the administration formed a Network Operating Council that pulls people from all over the hospital to help develop and approve procedures and policies to address issues that arise. Administrators also walk the halls visiting with patients and staff to get their view on health care, Stokes said. “We’re focusing on transparency and communication not just within the organization, but the community at large,” said Paul Schumacher, chief operating officer, who started about nine months ago. “We are accountable to every employee and citizen in counties we serve. We are stewards of this asset called Clarendon Health. We are mindful of our duties, and we are held accountable by our board and our employees.” This openness is part of the reason for last week’s meeting on the board’s approval to seek a $14.5 million loan from the United States Department of Agriculture that would be used to eliminate the $5.8 million Clarendon Health currently owes on a revenuebased loan and allow the hospital to

City council meeting will be ‘calm before the storm’ BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com After canceling its first meeting of the month because most members were away, Sumter City Council will return to work Tuesday with a fairly light agenda. “The agenda for late January and February is usually pretty easy,” said City Manager Deron McCormick, but with the process of writing the city budget starting in the spring, “this is kind of the calm before the storm.” Of the three items scheduled to be considered at the 5:30 p.m. meeting, two involve approving equipment purchases — a new dump truck and equipment for the fire department, respectively — and lifting a prohibition of alcohol sales at a series of city events in the coming year. But soon council’s attention will turn to the drafting of the new budget, which will require a series of workshop meetings. The process of approving the hefty document, which must be in effect by July 1, is already getting started. “We’ll be getting requests from department heads, and some other agencies are sending letters in,” McCormick

said. “A few like the transportation authority and the development board that are quasigovernment entities are also part of our appropriations process.” Part of Tuesday’s meeting will also be spent looking back at the city’s performance through this week’s ice storm. “We knew we had to be flexible, and we worked hard to stage our equipment ahead of time and be prepared,” McCormick said. “Once we go through it, we’ll know what we could have done different, but ... a lot of our staff chipped in on stuff that is not their job.” This may also be the final meeting for city council in the City Centre at 25 N. Main St., before the completion of the months-long renovations to the council chambers inside the Sumter Opera House. Officials had hoped to reopen the chamber room for this week’s meeting, but some finishing touches still need to be made before it’s opened to the public. “It’s 98 percent complete; we just have some touch-ups to do to make sure everything’s done,” McCormick said. Reach Bristow Marchant at (803) 774-1272.

build a more than $7 million medical office building, Stokes said. The administration plans to continue its efforts at communication by speaking to groups such as Rotary. “We want to tell our story,” Schumacher said. “It’s our responsibility to earn your business and trust. We know the impact we have, and we’ve identified our capabilities. We want to be the best doggone community hospital or medical system and offer the best service possible to the community.” To this end, last year the hospital added a transitional care unit for patients who don’t meet in-patient criteria but are still too sick to go home, Stokes said. “We made the decision in October during one of our multi-disciplinary meetings,” Schumacher said. “We had the space available and the expertise on hand that could fill the openings. We knew we had patients who could use it, and we received calls from other hospitals. The first week we opened, we had five patients, which exceeded our goal for the first month. The staff did a phenomenal job.” Clarendon Health System typically sees patients from Sumter, Clarendon, Williamsburg, Florence and Orangeburg counties, Stokes said. Administration has also hired seven new doctors — three from Sumter, two from other South Carolina cities and two from out of state. During the next 12 months, Stokes said he has two main goals. One will be to reduce non-labor-related costs and improve quality. Non-labor-related costs include supply costs and energy costs. “We have the potential for major

cost savings — $300,000 — by switching from fuel oil and propane to natural gas,” Stokes said. “Our quality is not bad. I’ve told the board, and I continue to say that finance should only make up 30 percent of a meeting. We’ve got to have the dollars to continue to deliver good, quality care.” Clarendon Memorial Hospital received a C from the Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Scores last fall, which was up from the spring score of D and the Fall 2012 score of F. Safety scores are figured using factors such as medical errors, accidents, injuries and infections that kill or hurt patients. Of the 2,539 hospitals scored, 893 earned Cs, including Tuomey Regional Medical Center. As part of the effort to address quality, administration is in the process of running value stream analysis on each area of health care, Stokes said. For example, with the operating room, the program would follow a patient from registration through discharge for an entire revenue cycle. Similarly, it formed an impact multidisciplinary team. “We know you are going home, and we want you to be healthy,” Stokes said. “So we start talking to you about home health, rehab, pharmacy — whatever you need post-discharge to try to prevent readmission.” During the last year, they identified 75 patients that were high users of the emergency room for primary care and have gotten them connected with primary care physicians, thus keeping them out of the ER, Stokes said. “Our goal longterm is when somebody needs general surgery or is having a baby, they think of us first,” he said.

Plea hearings postponed to as late as April by severe winter storm BY TYLER SIMPSON tyler@theitem.com With the Sumter County Judicial Center closed for two days due to the winter storm last week, plenty of plea hearings had to be rescheduled for as late as April. Because of the winter storm last week, the Judicial Center was closed on Wednesday and Thursday during its general session plea week. According to an update docket received from Clerk of Courts Jamie Campbell, 12 plea hearings

scheduled for Wednesday afternoon had to be rescheduled for Friday afternoon, while 15 additional plea hearings scheduled for Thursday morning were postponed until an unknown date. “The process for rescheduling pleas is pretty complicated,� Campbell said. Assistant Solicitor Bronwyn K. McElveen said that the Solicitor’s Office originally thought the Judicial Center would be closed for a day and a half, planning to move the hearings set for Thursday

morning to that afternoon. However, since the Judicial Center reopened for half a day Friday, all of the Thursday morning pleas have been rescheduled for the week of April 14. According to McElveen, the pleas handled Friday afternoon were mostly jail pleas and probation violations, since the roads were clear enough for officers with the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center to transport inmates to the Judicial Center. the solicitor’s normally try to

prioritize jail cases, especially those that involve medical complications. “We were affected, and we had to move those pleas to the week of April 14 because that’s the next time we will have a judge on the bench,� McElveen said. McElveen said that most victims are normally very understanding when their cases have to be postponed for whatever reason, satisfied knowing that there will still be some conclusion. “Usually when we have to

reschedule, it will affect the victims as far as work goes,� McElveen said. “However since the victims were not at work much during this week, it shouldn’t affect them that much.� The judges’ schedules are determined by the South Carolina Supreme Court, and S.C. Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal decided if the judges will have court or not, McElveen said. Reach Tyler Simpson at (803) 774-1295.

More talking to babies helps their brains develop language skills WASHINGTON (AP) — Using videos that claim to teach toddlers, or flash cards for tots, may not be the best idea. Simply talking to babies is key to building crucial language and vocabulary skills — but sooner is better, and long sentences are good. So says research that aims to explain, and help solve, the troubling “word gap�: Children from more affluent, professional families hear millions more words before they start school than poor kids, leaving the lower-income students at an academic disadvantage that’s difficult to overcome. That gap starts to appear at a younger age than scientists once thought, around 18 months, said Stanford University psychology professor Anne Fernald. And research being presented this week at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science suggests that it’s not just hearing lists of words that matters as much as rich, varied language with good grammar that trains babies’ brains to learn through context. Instead of just saying, “Here’s an orange,� it would be better to say: “Let’s put the orange in this bowl with the

banana and the apple and the grapes.� “It’s making nets of meaning that then will help the child learn new words,� Fernald explained. “The advice I give mothers is to have conversations with your babies,� added Erika Hoff, a psychology professor at Florida Atlantic University. “Children can hear lots of talk that goes over their head in terms of the meaning, and they still benefit from it.� The research comes amid a growing push for universal preschool, to help disadvantaged youngsters catch up. But it also raises the question of whether children from lowincome, less educated families need earlier intervention, such as preschool that starts at age 3 instead of 4, or higher

quality day care or even some sort of “Let’s talk� campaign aimed at new parents to stress talking, singing and reading with tots even before they can respond. That can be difficult for parents working multiple jobs, or who may not read well or who simply don’t know why it’s important. Scientists have long known that before they start kindergarten, children from middleclass or affluent families have heard millions more words than youngsters from low-income families, leaving the poorer children with smaller vocabularies and less ready to succeed academically. Fernald said by some measures, 5-year-olds from low-income families can lag two years behind their peers in tests of language development.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A digital audio recorder rests on a toddler’s bib at a home in Providence, R.I., recently. The city has begun an effort to boost language skills for children from low-income families by equipping them with audio recorders that count every word they hear. During home visits, social workers go over the word counts with parents and suggest tips to boost the child’s language skills.

Make changes that keep your heart’s health in mind

H

eart disease remains the No. 1 killer of Americans. It is often referred to as the silent killer because there may not be any obvious symptoms as it develops. Heart disease does not discriminate and can happen to anyone at any time. Cathy Mason, 40, a mother of four children and an aerobics instructor for more than CORRIGAN six years, had a heart attack at the young age of 38. “I gained 65 pounds with my first pregnancy and continued to gain more with each pregnancy. After my fourth baby at 29 years old, I topped the scale at 220 pounds. I had put 100 pounds on my 5-foot 2-inch frame since the day I got married. Frustrated, I finally made the decision to join the local YMCA, and

there I noticed that there were a lot of ladies going through the same thing as me. That year, with the support of the friends I met in the group exercise classes and fitness center, I lost about 60 pounds. Excited and motivated, I decided I wanted to help people have my same success, so I became a certified aerobics instructor. Now, I thought as long as I was exercising and losing weight, I didn’t need to worry about my eating habits, but I learned that there is nothing further from the truth.

STINNEY FROM PAGE A1 and Pardon Services, citing the same evidence of due process violations argued at last month’s retrial hearing. The department’s field office in Clarendon County recently completed its formal review of the case, and the request could go before a meeting of the state pardon board as early as April. But whether that hearing takes place depends on how the other proceedings involving Stinney shape up. “If the judge overturns the verdict and orders a retrial, then a pardon becomes moot. You can’t pardon someone who’s innocent,� said DPPPS spokesman Pete O’Boyle. “If the judge decides she can’t overturn it and it stands as it has for 70 years, and at that point there’s no other legal process available, then they can pursue a pardon.� If the pardon application moves forward, Stinney advocates will have a chance to present their case to the pardon board at a Columbia meeting. The solicitor’s office and the victims’ families will also have an opportunity to voice their opposition. The whole proceeding may take less than a hour. Stinney’s application is an unusual one. O’Boyle could only recall two previous instances were pardons were

TIPS FOR A HEALTHY HEART Understand your risks Have regular doctor visits Eat healthy foods Be physically active

In July 2012, I was filling up my water bottle to teach my cycle class when I felt a horrible burning through my chest and back. Thinking it was just heartburn, I tried everything I could think of to make it better, but when it wouldn’t let up and

my arms went limp, I knew something more was wrong with me. I thought it couldn’t possibly be a heart attack. I’m only 38, and I don’t meet the risk factors. I have been an instructor for four years teaching at least 15 classes a week. I was in great shape with no family history of heart disease. When I arrived at the hospital, they ran all the necessary tests which revealed that I had indeed had a heart attack. The catheterization procedure revealed a 99 percent blocked artery. The doctors couldn’t understand why this happened to me, especially since I did not meet any of the risk factors. It wasn’t until I enrolled in the YFIT nutrition program at the Y that I learned I was carrying 40% body fat, and that was even after losing 60 pounds and wearing a size 18W. Then, I knew that weight had no bearing on my health;

it was the amount of body fat that did. No amount of exercise was going to help, so I learned how to develop good eating habits. Not only did I learn what foods to buy, but when to eat them and the right combination. Being healthy wasn’t about deprivation and definitely not starvation but about fueling my body with healthy foods, not processed diet foods that were disguised as healthy, which I relied on previously for weight loss. In five months, I was able to get my body fat down to 22 percent. As a result of that, I also lost 30 pounds, and I went from a size 12 to a 2. I have made some true lifestyle changes for the better. Without the Y and the knowledgeable instructors and programs, I would not be as healthy as I am today. I am looking forward to my future being a healthier woman, wife, mom and friend.�

PINEWOOD FROM PAGE A1

sought for a convict posthumously, only one of which involved a capital case. A pardon of a crime supporters think Stinney never committed, and which still leaves his guilt unquestioned, would also be an unsatisfying outcome for relatives. “Obviously, the family wants a new trial. They want some kind of exoneration,� McKenzie said. If the judge’s ruling goes against the Stinneys, McKenzie said he would advise them to appeal, which would put the pardon hearing off even further. Defense attorneys will instead challenge the solicitor’s assertion that the writ of relief they requested from the court, called “coram nobis,� has been implicitly repealed by the General Assembly in other post-conviction legislation. “We may take this to the Supreme Court and ask whether coram nobis is still good law in South Carolina,� he said. “As a lawyer, you always like to see new law made.� But barring a favorable ruling there, a pardon for Stinney may be the next best thing. “From a pragmatic standpoint,� McKenzie said, “it’s a better result than where we are now.� Reach Bristow Marchant at (803) 774-1272.

Floridian guilty of lesser counts in music shooting JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A 47-yearold software developer was convicted Saturday of attempted murder for shooting into a carful of teenagers after an argument about their loud music, but jurors couldn't agree on the most serious charge of first-degree murder. After more than 30 hours of jury deliberations over four days, a mistrial was declared on the murder charge that Michael Dunn faced in the fatal shooting of one of the black teens. The 12 jurors found him guilty of three counts of attempted second-degree murder and a count of firing into an occupied car. Dunn was charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis, of Marietta, Ga., in 2012 after they got into an argument over music coming from the parked SUV occupied by Davis and three friends outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Dunn, who is white, had described the music to his fiancee as "thug music." Dunn showed no emotion as the verdicts were read. Davis' parents each left the courtroom in tears. Earlier in the day, jurors said in a note to

Judge Russell L. Healey that they were having trouble reaching agreement on the murder charge. He asked them to continue their work, and they went back to the deliberation room for two more hours. "I've never seen a case where deliberations have gone on for this length of time ..." Healey said after the verdict. "They've embraced their civic duty and they are to be commended for that." Dunn claimed he acted in self-defense, testifying he thought he saw a firearm pointed at him from the SUV as Davis yelled insults at him and the argument escalated. No weapon was found in the SUV. Dunn told jurors he feared for his life, perceiving "this was a clear and present danger." Dunn, who has a concealed weapons permit, fired 10 shots, hitting the vehicle nine times. Prosecutors contended that Dunn opened fire because he felt disrespected by Davis. The teen made his friend turn the music back up after they initially turned it down at Dunn's request. Dunn was parked in the spot next to the SUV outside the convenience store.

Few eligible patients can get weight-loss surgery WASHINGTON (AP) — Like 78 million other Americans, MaryJane Harrison is obese. And like many critically overweight Americans, Harrison cannot afford to have weight-loss surgery because her health insurance doesn’t cover it. The financial burden makes it nearly impossible for her to follow the advice of three physicians who have prescribed the stomachshrinking procedure for Harrison, who is four feet 10 inches and weighs 265 pounds. Harrison’s health insurance plan, provided by UnitedHealth, excludes coverage of any surgical procedures for weight loss. As a result, she and her family are trying to raise $15,000 to pay for the surgery that she thinks will save her life. “I am now 53, and I don’t think I’m going to live to be 55,” said Harrison, who lives outside of San Antonio and has tried for years to lose weight through dieting and exercise. “When you feel your health deteriorating this fast, you know it.” UnitedHealth said it can’t legally comment on Harrison’s health plan unless she signs a privacy waiver.

HOUSE SUSPENSION OF DEBT LIMIT: The House on Feb. 11 voted, 221 for and 201 against, to suspend the current $17.2 trillion nationaldebt limit until March 16, 2015, enabling the Treasury to borrow to pay bills already incurred by Congress and the executive branch. The bill (S 540) was supported by 99 percent of Democrats who voted and opposed by 88 percent of Republicans who voted. Unlike other debt-limit increases in recent years, this is a “clean” measure free of conditions such as policy changes and spending cuts. Supporter Richard Neal, D-Mass., said the vote was “about paying for the war in Iraq” and “the tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that continued right through 2010 based upon the mistaken notion ... that, in fact, tax cuts pay for themselves.” No member spoke against the bill. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate. VOTE H-1 slugged DEBT LIMIT SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: James Clyburn, D-6 Voting no: Mark Sanford, R-1, Joe Wilson, R-2, Jeff Duncan, R-3, Trey Gowdy, R-4, Mick Mulvaney, R-5, Tom Rice, R-7 Not voting: None

MILITARY COST-OF-LIVING INCREASES: Voting 326 for and 90 against, the House on Feb. 11 repealed a cut in cost-of-living adjustments for military retirees younger than 62 that was enacted in December as part of a two-year budget deal. This sent the bill (S 25) to the Senate. Set to take effect next year, the cut would result in working-age military retirees receiving annual COLAs one percentage point below inflation as mea-

you look at the impact of obesity on life expectancy, it’s by far one of the most dangerous conditions we have in public health.” Surgeons blame a combination of factors for the stagnating numbers, including the economic downturn and a social stigma against resorting to surgery to treat weight problems. But insurance coverage is the largest hurdle, they say. Nearly two-thirds of health plans sponsored by employers don’t cover weight-loss surgery, which can cost between $15,000 and $25,000. Those that do often mandate that patients meet a number of requirements, including special diets and psychological evaluations, before they can get the procedure covered. And early signs indicate many of the same challenges seen in the private market have carried over to the new, state-run insurance exchanges that are part of the healthcare overhaul: Only 24 states require insurers to cover weight-loss surgery for patients. And when the procedure is covered, many plans require patients to pay up to 50 percent of the cost out of pocket.

sured by the Consumer Price Index. At age 62, they would once again receive COLAs that keep pace with inflation. The cut would raise about $6 billion over 10 years to be used to soften the impact of sequestration on military and non-military discretionary budgets. To offset that revenue loss, the bill would curb Medicare reimbursements to doctors. The bill was passed without floor debate.

budged in a decade. Last year, about 160,000 U.S. patients underwent weightloss surgery — roughly the same number as in 2004. That’s only about 1 percent of the estimated 18 million adults who qualify nationwide for the surgery, according to

the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. “If we were talking about breast cancer, no one would be content with having only one percent of that population treated,” said Dr. John Morton, professor of surgery at Stanford University. “Yet if

SUSPENSION OF DEBT LIMIT: Voting 55 for and 43 against, the Senate on Feb. 12 sent the White House a bill (S 540, above) to suspend the statutory debt limit until March 16, 2015, allowing the Treasury to borrow above the current $17.2 trillion cap over the next 13 months and avert U.S. default. The borrowing is necessary to accommodate spending already approved by the executive and legislative branches. The bill was passed with-

This was the decisive vote on the bill. Twelve Republicans joined 53 Democrats and two independents to push the bill over a 60-vote threshold, end a Tea Party-led filibuster and move toward final passage (next issue). The 12 Republicans who voted to end the filibuster were Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, John Barrasso of Wyoming, Susan Collins of Maine, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Mark Kirk of Illinois, John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John Thune of South Dakota.

THE SUMTER ITEM

DILLON PARK FROM PAGE A1 people trying to get back to their normal routine of walking,� Hayes said. “Dillon Park is used a lot. People are out using the walking track or playing soccer in the field, and it just causes too much congestion. For their safety, we’re just trying to get them out of there.� In the mornings and evenings, trucks and buses line up with workers entering and exiting the park, creating a hazard area not just for the public, but for the workers as well. The walking track in the park runs through the area where the crew has established its mobile command center and kitchen. The walking traffic could interfere with their operations. Duke Energy Progress established the base camp with a number of crews as early as Wednesday morning in preparation for power outages caused by the winter storm. They had planned to bring in more help on Thursday out of Greenville, but those crews were delayed because of ice on the road. More crews continued to come in through the week. “They actually managed to restore power for more people that actually have customers,� Hayes said. Hayes said he was unsure how long the emergency crews will use Dillon Park as its base camp since there are about 2,141 customers in Sumter County that are without power as of Sunday morning. “I can’t say this for sure, but this might be a launching pad for several other counties, as

as tree limbs falling on county and secondary roads. With the heavy wind Saturday, Hayes said that county could have expected more power outages with cracked tree limbs possibly landing on power lines.

“It’s just something that happens after every storm,� Hayes said. “They work hard to get (the power) back up, and you still have some weak limbs that never fell down during the storm. We just

Calif. wine-grape growers HOME PLUMBING celebrate bumper crop INSPECTIONS HILL PLUMBING

$49.95

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — California agriculture officials reported good news for wine lovers and vineyard operators alike: a record harvest of wine grapes. Growers in the nation’s premier wine region brought in a bumper crop last year, thanks to expanded acreage and overall favorable weather. Wine brokers told The Modesto Bee that two back-toback years of large harvests will mean wine aficionados should find plenty of bargain bottles on grocery store shelves. “Consumers are in a great position because of the amount of wine that is coming out of California,� said Erica Moyer of Riverbank, a grape and wine broker for Turrentine Brokerage in Novato. Wine grapes are one of California’s top commodities, a crop worth $3.16 billion last year, according to the Califor-

nia Association of Winegrape Growers. The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s preliminary figures show that the crop of red and white varieties combined weighed in at 4.23 million tons in 2013, up 5 percent from 4.02 million tons in 2012. The industry is well positioned to take advantage of the large crops, said Heidi Scheid, chairwoman of the winegrape growers’ association. “After short crops in 2010 and 2011, growers delivered two remarkable vintages, with record-sized harvests and exceptional quality,� she said. While Napa County’s vineyards carry international cache, the San Joaquin Valley, stretching for 220 miles from Stockton to Bakersfield, is the U.S.’s most prolific grape-growing region and home to 44 percent of the state’s crop.

Clot risk lasts for 12 weeks after pregnancy BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer Women have a higher risk of blood clots that can cause strokes, heart attacks and other problems for 12 weeks after childbirth — twice as long as doctors have thought, new research finds. Strokes are still fairly rare right after pregnancy but devastating when they do occur and fatal about 10 percent of the time, according to Dr. Hooman Kamel, a neurology specialist at New York’s Weill Cornell Medical College. Blood clots in the legs usually just cause pain but can be fatal if they trav-

el to the lungs. Kamel led the new study, which was published online in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at an American Heart Association stroke conference in San Diego on Thursday. Pregnant women are more prone to blood clots because blood components to prevent excessive bleeding during labor naturally increase, and blood from the legs has more trouble traveling to the heart. “Sometimes there’s the notion that once they deliver they don’t have to worry about these things,� but risk persists for some time after

STROKE INFORMATION: www.strokeassociation.org the birth, said Dr. Andrew Stemer, a Georgetown University neurologist. Doctors now sometimes give low-dose blood thinners to certain women at higher risk of blood clots for six weeks after delivery. The new study suggests risk lasts longer than that. It involved nearly 1.7 million California women giving birth to their first child. Over the next year and a half, 1,015 of them developed clots — 248 had strokes, 47

had heart attacks and 720 had clots in the legs or lungs. The risk of one of these problems was about 11 times greater during the first six weeks after delivery and more than two times greater during weeks seven to 12. After that, it fell to level seen in women who had not had a baby. A federal grant paid for the research. Kamel advises women who recently had a baby to seek medical help right away if they develop chest pain or pressure, trouble breathing, swelling or pain in one leg, a sudden severe headache or

sudden loss of speech, vision, balance, or strength on one side of the body. High blood pressure and smoking add to the risk of blood clots. Last week, the Heart Association issued its first guidelines for preventing strokes in women, focusing on pregnancy as one highrisk time. Women with a history of high blood pressure before pregnancy should be considered for low-dose aspirin (around 81 milligrams) after the first three months of pregnancy, and calcium supplements anytime, the guidelines say.

NOTABLE AND QUOTABLE NEW USC SUMTER DEAN MAKING TRANSITION In the Feb. 15 edition, Sumter Item reporter Raytevia Evans explores variety of topics with new USCSumter Dean Dr. Michael Sonntag. Read “Maine transplant adjusts to role as USC Sumter dean,” at www. theitem.com: I think externally, we’re seemingly in good shape with regard to the community. Everyone I’ve talked to has been very supportive and very encouraging. And that’s not always the case. Sometimes you find an institution that has isolated itself from the community and sort of purposely withdrawn, and I don’t think that’s the case here. I feel good about continuing the work with the community. That’s on my agenda, to make sure the community leaders know me and I know them. Somewhere I also want to have a conversation with community leaders about what else we could be doing and if there’s something we’re not doing that they think we should be.

NATIONAL GUARD HELPS WITH WINTER WEATHER In the Feb. 15 edition, Sumter Item reporter Jade Reynolds writes, “National Guard thriving across state.” Read it online at www.theitem.com: With the large number of airmen at Shaw Air Force Base and now soldiers from Third Army/ARCENT in town, there is one branch of service that is sometimes overlooked in Sumter. “Sumter has always been more of an Air Force community,” said Capt. Mike Jones with the Army National Guard. “When Third Army came, I went into the same restaurant I’ve gone to for years, and the staff said, ‘we’re glad to have you.’ I was like, ‘I was here just last week.’ It’s been kind of interesting, kind of funny, but

it’s nice to be recognized.” Often thought of in times of natural disaster, as of Thursday, 232 National Guard soldiers were deployed during the ice and snow this week supporting highway operations with 14 wrecker teams and an additional 30 dump trucks hauling more than 600 tons of salt inland from Charleston, according to the S.C. Governor’s Office. The Guard population has averaged about 9,500 across the state the last few years, Jones said, and occasionally there has been a push to get that figure to 10,000. There was a surge after the 9/11 attacks, and around 2008 and 2009 when the economy dipped, there was another smaller surge, Jones said, but it has mostly

remained steady at that figure.

VOLKSWAGEN VOTE HURTS AUTO WORKERS UNION In “Volkswagen Vote is Defeat for Labor in South,” Steve Greenhouse writes: “In a defeat for organized labor in the South, employees at the (Chattanooga, Tenn.) Volkswagen plant voted 712 to 626 against joining the United Automobile Workers.” Read it online at www.nytimes.com: The loss is an especially stinging blow for U.A.W. because Volkswagen did not even oppose the unionization drive. The union’s defeat — in what was one of the most closely watched unionization votes in decades — is expected to slow, perhaps stymie, the

union’s long-term plans to organize other auto plants in the South. Volkswagen did not oppose the U.A.W. partly because its officials were eager to create a German-style works council, a committee of managers and blue-collar and white-collar workers who develop factory policies, on issues like work schedules and vacations. Volkswagen, which has unions and works councils at virtually all of its 105 other plants worldwide, views such councils as crucial for improving morale and cooperation and increasing productivity.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What polls are you reading and citing, Mr. Baten? In Wednesday’s Letters to the Editor section, Mr. Eugene R. Baten states in his letter “Polls show we trust president more than GOP” that “ vowed to increase opportunities for Americans with or without Congress.” Mr. Baten goes on to say that he was impressed with President Obama’s “... determination to move this country forward through executive orders.” I would say that President Obama is both overstepping his authority and ignoring the Constitution. In the past, President Obama has stepped beyond his constitutional authority by changing federal law by presidential fiat. For example, he has on at least two occasions negated deadlines or other provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). What Constitutional authority is he using to bypass federal law? Additionally, there seems to be a serious disconnect between his words and his actions. He and others keep telling the public that the ACA is federal law and that members of Congress should not be trying to change or negate any portion of it. Again, what authority is he using to change those provisions which are proving to be problematic for his administration? Through both his words and his actions, it seems to me that President Obama is not concerned with the separation of powers established by the Constitution. I cannot, in any way, think this as a good thing. The checks and balances of the Constitution are being ignored by the president, and to make matters much worse, Congress is letting him get away with it. Finally, I would point out that Mr. Baten’s assertion that Americans trust the president more than the GOP is not supported by his letter. He refers to a 45 percent approval rating

for President Obama and a 9 percent approval rating for Congress, which would include all members of Congress, regardless of party affiliation. He does not identify the poll, then goes on to say that “All polls show ...,” again without identifying the polls. I would be curious to know which polls he is referring to. CHARLES FRANCIS Sumter

Way to put a spin on statistics, Mr. Baten I typically read The (Sumter) Item’s Opinion page before I read the comics. It’s usually entertaining. However, I find I am in need to reply to a letter in the Feb. 12 Item. I’m not sure where the writer gets his information (there are usually no references). My information comes from http://realclearpolitics.com/ epolls/latest_polls/. An average of five national polls found there has the President’s approval at 42 percent and his disapproval at 53 percent. That means more than half disapprove, yet you managed to spin that into a positive. Also, at the same site, Congress’ overall approval (two polls averaged) was 11 percent and disapproval 79 percent. Looking further, the disparity between Democrat and Republican trust is only 2 percent, meaning those polled distrust them almost equally. And again, you managed to spin that into a distrust of the GOP. Well done. JAMES GROSS Dalzell

Sexism isn’t as blatant as Mr. Baten implies This is in reference to Mr. Baten’s letter on Feb.12. I know that it is a waste of time to comment because he won’t understand what I say and doesn’t answer questions posed to him. I claim to be a “local female writer to The Item.” I have always been paid the same amount that my male coun-

terparts received. I also had the same (job) requirements to do and could keep up with them. I was promoted fairly, as well. I did have a couple of short jobs that had no equivalency to some other job for a man. If a man held that position, then he would have been paid the same. For example, I was a telephone operator for Southern Bell in Charleston. Men who worked as an installer or other position were paid more, but the job was different. I was working during the time when “sexist” was as popular as “racist” is today. I am so happy that we don’t have to hear about “sexism” like we still have to hear about “racism.” It must be very frustrating to have to look for “racism” everywhere. I remember feeling sorry for a couple of women who were always complaining about “sexism” and how they weren’t being treated fairly. My observation of them was that they weren’t doing their job and just wanted to cause problems. There were times when I didn’t like getting passed over for a promotion, but when I examined the situation, I realized it wasn’t my turn, yet. Yes, there have many been times in my life when I didn’t get what I wanted. Boo-hoo. I chose to try harder and do what was necessary to advance instead of causing problems. Mr. Baten, I get that you think that President Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I don’t. It’s hard to dislike someone who thinks like you do and provides for your every need. Just remember, if he can provide it today, he can take it away tomorrow. JACQUELINE K. HUGHES Sumter

A little snow and ice shouldn’t cause shutdown On Feb. 12, in Sumter, we went into a coma for two days

because of inclement weather. I thought it was a beautiful, out-of-the-ordinary event. However, we have to continue to thrive, and keep the city moving. We can no longer live in the past and hibernate for a couple of days, and say, “This will pass.” Global warming could be altering the normal weather patterns; therefore, we must be proactive and implement stronger contingency plans for the future. Needless to say, the cause for our city to sit still was not the weather; the problem lies in not creating a plan. Now it’s time to find a solution. The cause for the city to shut down was not the inclement weather, but the lack of readiness. People are not ready to change the old philosophies of “Wait it out” and “It will pass.” Well, the times are changing, and so is the weather. We need to make the necessary changes or get left behind. In the past, Sumter may have been shielded from the harsh weather conditions, but this (was) our second bout with harsher weather conditions this year. If there is a third time, will we be better prepared with the philosophy of “Wait it out?” Needless to say, Old Man Winter is not why the city sat still. The cause was a failure to prepare for the changing weather conditions. The problem with the old philosophy of “Wait it out,” or not facing the problem head on, will cost in the long run. Sumter is a growing city, and a new ideology must grow within it. As the city grows, the businesses will be able to expand and create more jobs. For example, Continental has come into Sumter, which has created an enormous amount of job opportunities. Are we saying, “Thanks, and please stay in our town” and then people can’t get to work? Fact check for people in Sumter: Big businesses do not take kindly to losses. We need to grow with the people that are

trying to grow us. MARLOWE JOHNSON Sumter Editor’s note: Because this letter exceeded the 350-word length as stated in our Editorial Page Policies which appears regularly on this page, it can be read in its entirety under Opinion on The Item’s website, www.theitem.com.

Be on the look out for wounded warriors scam Last week, two women posing as neighbors and members of the USC orchestra asked Emily, my wife, and me to donate $400. This would pay for magazines for “wounded warriors.” It would also give the women “points” for their London trip to perform with the London Symphony Orchestra. They told of their fascinating backgrounds — the younger one was Amish and the other was Cajun. Emily has a tender heart for veterans, since I’m one, and she was apparently willing to give $200 if I would give the other $200. As a retired teacher, that was too much, but I offered them $20. They were indignant, and said $63 was the least their organization, “Fit for Life,” would accept. My wife wrote the check, and as they left, we walked a way down the road with them. Back at the house, I remembered reading about a scam like this years ago. The next morning, Emily called the police non-emergency number (436-2700) and was told several people had called in about the women. She called USC and found they were not registered as students and no orchestral trip was planned to London. Our banker put a stop to the $63 check. This is written to warn others about the “wounded warriors” scam, so that they won’t get wounded. LAURANCE H. KANNON Sumter

Gamecocks sweep Bucknell to open season BY CHARLES BENNETT Special to The Greenville News COLUMBIA-- It wasn’t a perfect day, but South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook wasn’t looking for perfection on opening day. South Carolina began its baseball season by taking a doubleheader from Bucknell at Carolina Stadium, winning 17-4 and 12-2 on a windy Saturday with temperatures in 50s.

“There’s a lot we’ve got to get better at and shore up, but all in all a good day,” Holbrook said. “We had double digit hits and double digit runs in both HOLBROOK games and one error in 18 innings and scored 29 runs. We’re sitting here 2-0, and it feels pretty good.” The two teams wrap up the series with a game at 12:30 p.m. today.

South Carolina finished with 10 hits in the first game, but the Bison (0-2) helped out with seven walks. Designated hitter DC Arendas was 3-for-4 with three RBI, including a homer to right. “To say the wind was a big help is an understatement,” said Arendas, who played third base in the second game. Tanner English starred for the Gamecocks in game two, finishing

with three hits and five RBIs. English was able to put his speed on display in the seventh, driving a ball into the gap in left center and stretching it into a triple. Two runs scored on the play. Catcher Greyson Greiner also had a solid day at the plate and behind it. Greiner caught both ends of the doubleheader and was a combined 4-for-8

Castle. The win improved Darlington to 15-5 overall and 7-2 in the region – keeping pace with Lakewood atop the standings for the moment. The loss drops Crestwood to 10-11 overall and 4-5 in the region – likely forcing a must-win scenario against Marlboro County on Monday in the team’s final regular-season game. “(Marlboro) still has to play Lakewood, but it’s likely going to come down to us needing to win that game to get in,” Crestwood head coach Dwayne Edwards said. “But we’re going to need better effort than tonight.

Harris’ 16 leads Virginia past Tigers as Cavs win 9th straight ACC game BY PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press CLEMSON— Virginia coach Tony Bennett was so excited about his team’s first win at Clemson in seven years, he wanted to scream in celebration and pump his fists with his players in the locker room. He didn’t, though. That’s not how the 17thranked Cavaliers built their lonHARRIS gest win Atlantic Coast Conference win streak in 32 years and isn’t how Bennett believes they’ll go forward.

It also snapped a four-game losing streak at Clemson, enough reason for some postgame hoopla. “But I said, nah,” Bennett said with a smile. “Just told them, ‘Great win. Hard fought. Made plays down the stretch.’” That’s keep with Bennett’s steady approach at success. It’s a stepladder, he tells his players, where you must carefully climb. “You put two feet on that step and everything you’ve got,” he said. “That’s the most important one.” The Cavaliers (21-5) moved to 12-1 in ACC play, also for the first time since Sampson’s days. Not that it came easily as Virginia’s No. 1 defense was matched up against a

team in Clemson that ranked second nationally in fewest points allowed. The Tigers (15-9, 6-6) trailed 49-48 on Rod Hall’s layup with 3:38 to go.

Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant (35) and Miami forward LeBron James (6) will square off today in the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. Each player is considered to be the best in their respective conferences.

James, Durant arrive at All-Star as NBA’s 1A, 1B BY BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — With the first pick in the 2014 NBA AllStar fantasy draft ... “I’d go with LeBron,” Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan said. “I’ll take KD,” said Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving. That’s how close it is right now between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. They are the very best of the NBA’s best, both so talented that even guys who play against them every night have trouble deciding which one they think is better. “I think it’s almost a situation where you have 1A and 1B, because both give you so many different things out on the court,” Minnesota’s Kevin Love said. “1A, 1B,” agreed Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs, who were knocked out of the playoffs by Durant two years ago and James last year. “As journalists you’re always going to try to choose, but me as a basketball player and playing against them, they’re both great.” James was the MVP of the game in 2008, the last time the NBA’s All-Star weekend came to New Orleans.

But King James might be giving up the throne this time, with multiple players believing Durant will emerge with his first MVP award this season. “I think it’s ultimately going to be KD and LeBron, and KD’s team is No. 1 in the West right now,” Portland’s Damian Lillard said. “He’s getting 40 every night and flirting with a triple-double, so I think if they had to pick an MVP right now it would be KD.” But MVP is decided by a media panel. Nobody voting for that ever shares the floor with James or Durant. What about somebody like Carmelo Anthony, who plays the same position, is sandwiched between them at No. 2 in the scoring race, and has teamed with both on the U.S. Olympic team?

Hamlin wins Sprint Unlimited at Daytona BY JENNA FRYER The Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Denny Hamlin won a race of attrition Saturday night, beating just seven other cars to the finish of the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. Only eight cars were running at the end of the 75-lap showcase at Daytona International Speedway on a bizarre night that saw Ricky Stenhouse Jr. end girlfriend Danica Patrick’s race and the Chevrolet pace car catch fire. It set up a final 20-lap sprint to the finish with the second fewest number of drivers takHAMLIN ing the checkered flag in event history. Only seven drivers finished the 1981 race. Hamlin charged to the front right before he took the white flag by diving to the inside and sailing past the few cars on the track. He then drove away in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota for his second career win in the Speedweeks opener. He also won the event as a rookie in 2006. “That was survival of the fittest for sure,” Hamlin said. “With three to go, we were at the tail end of a very small pack. It’s really hard to get runs, but this car was phenomenal. You saw it those last couple of laps.” A 75-lap race split over three segments, this version had a heavy fan involvement

KNIGHTS FROM PAGE B1 Taking nothing away from Darlington, but I just didn’t think we had the intensity we needed to out there and that’s something we’ll work on before Monday.” The two teams went back and forth for most of the first quarter before the Falcons closed on a 6-0 run. Darlington poured it on in the second to grab a 28-14 lead at the break behind its pressure defense and the play of Frankie Johnson. Johnson had eight points at the half and finished with a game-high 19. “Frankie does a good job distributing the ball and we’ve had good guard play all season,” Darlington head coach Ken Howle said. “I was really pleased with the effort we got from some of our bench players like Wesley (Ellerbe).” The 6-foot-7-inch Ellerbe nearly had a double-double at the half with eight points and eight rebounds. He finished with 12 and 10 and was part of a big second quarter in which Darlington out-rebounded Crestwood 14-6. “We didn’t do a good job of keeping them off the board,” Edwards said. “That hurt us a whole lot – them getting easy baskets at the rim. We have to do a better job of that and of playing better on offense.”

as sponsor Sprint allowed fans to vote for various aspects of the race. Among them was the starting order, how the segments were split and how the cars lined up in the final segment. But it was mostly for naught as half the 18-car field was knocked out six laps into the second segment when Matt Kenseth cut across the front of Joey Logano. It triggered a nine-car accident on the frontstretch — including Stenhouse’s dramatic late hit into the side of Patrick’s car. “I got hit by my boyfriend. What a bummer,” Patrick said. Stenhouse took blame for ending Patrick’s race. He had difficulty seeing in front of him because his hood was badly crumpled when he hit the back of Kurt Busch. “I just drilled her,” Stenhouse said. “I didn’t see anything from the time it started to the time it ended. Talking to Danica, I drilled her when she was pretty much sitting still. I couldn’t see, couldn’t turn.” The accident left debris and mangled sheet metal all over the frontstretch and brought the race to a stop for just over 11 minutes. It ended the night for Tony Stewart, who was racing for the first time since he broke his right leg in an August sprint car crash, and teammates Patrick and Kurt Busch. Kevin Harvick, driving the fourth Stewart-Haas Racing entry in the field, seemed to have a Chevrolet capable of contending for the win but suffered serious damage that dropped him well off the pace.

The Knights never got into a rhythm offensviley, scoring in single digits in both the first and second quarters. Crestwood was down 20 at the end of the third quarter. “We missed a couple shots early on and that really seemed to hurt us confidencewise,” Edwards said. “You encourage players to just keep shooting, but the ball was falling and that seemed to make us lose confidence.” The two bright spots on offense for the Knights were James Brailsford and Tyrrell Allen. Brailsford finished with a team-high 12 while Allen was close behind with 11. Nine of Allen’s points came in the fourth quarter when he made three straight 3-point shots. Chris Hooks was the other Falcon with double-digit points, finishing with 10. In the girls game, Crestwood crusied to a 43-26 win over the visiting Lady Falcons with a decisive 12-3 run in the third quarter. The victory improved the Lady Knights’ overall record to 20-3 and region record to 9-0 – the 24th straight region win. Shaquanda McCray led Crestwood with 12 points followed by Crystal Bennett with 10, Cawasha Ceasar with eight and Keanua Williams with seven in an all-around scoring effort. Jada Richardson scored 12 points to pace Darlington, which fell to 3-6 in region play.

TODAY’S GAMES

Crownover leads Tigers past Eagles BY SCOTT KEEPFER Greenville News CLEMSON-- Matthew Crownover says he’s got his “horsepower” back. It certainly appeared that way Saturday. Crownover, a sophomore left-hander, struck out a career-high nine in five innings to key Clemson to a 5-3 victory against Eastern Michigan at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. “It’s nice to have something on the fastball again,” Crownover said. “We like where the horsepower is now. I feel so much stronger now than I ever have, I’m having to CROWNOVER rein it back in. It’s a good problem to have.” Crownover, who is 23 months removed from Tommy John surgery, scattered four hits, allowing two runs, one earned, in his Andy Pettitte imitation. “Everybody jokes with me, calling me Tom Glavine or Andy Pettitte – that’s what Pettitte did with the Yankees, Clemens would get beat in the playoffs and he’d come back and get ’em a win,” Crownover said. Clemson’s ace, junior right-hander Daniel Gossett, got no decision in Friday’s season-

opening loss. “When you get beat in a Friday night game and play well, it’s kind of a downer,” Crownover said. “You’ve got to be able to create some energy for your team and get them going the next day, and that’s what I tried to do.” Clemson (1-1) also swung the bats better, knocking Eagles starter Sterling Sharp out with three runs and six hits in 22/3 innings. A pair of sophomores led the way – shortstop Tyler Krieger and right fielder Steven Duggar each had three hits. Clemson got an RBI single from Jay Baum in the second and a run-scoring double from Garrett Boulware and an RBI single by Duggar in the third to take the lead. Krieger had run-scoring singles in the fourth and sixth, and Zack Erwin and tossed four innings of three-hit ball in relief. “We hit the ball really well, hit the ball on the nose a lot today,” Clemson coach Jack Leggett said. “Crownover and Zach Irwin were really good for us today, but I told the kids we’re going to be in a lot of games like this – 6-3, 5-4, that’s just the way the game is right now. We’ve got to play good defense and pitch.” The teams conclude their series at 1 p.m. today.

Former WH standout Sherrill picks up win as Citadel tops Louisville

-6

CHARLESTON – Former Wilson Hall and Sumter P-15’s standout Zach Sherrill picked up the win in relief in The Citadel’s 5-3 victory over No. 8 Louisville on Saturday at Riley Park in the Homewood Suites Tournament. The right-handed Sherrill relieved starting pitcher Josh Cribb with two outs in the top of the sixth inning after the Cardinals had scored three runs to take a 3-1 lead. Sherrill got the final out of the sixth and retired the Cardinals in order in the seventh, including his second strikeout. The sophomore, who appeared in 48 of 60 games last year, was put in position to SHERRILL earn the win when the Bulldogs took the lead in their half of the seventh. The Citadel, which defeated Virginia Tech in its opening game on Friday, tied the game with two runs in the sixth and went ahead with a single run in the seventh. Sherrill pitched a scoreless inning in Friday’s game.

LOS ANGELES— A city known for its star power has a PGA Tour event filled with fairy tales off Sunset Boulevard. Start with William McGirt, who ran off eight birdies in 13 holes at Riviera on his way to a 6-under 65 on Saturday to build a two-shot lead in the Northern Trust Open. Going into his fourth full season, McGirt has never won on the PGA Tour. His last victory was on the eGolf Tour in the Carolinas, where the $16,000 winner’s check paid off his credit cards. Asked to name the mini-tours he played, McGirt said he would run out of fingers and toes counting them. He was at 12-under 201, two shots ahead of George McNeill (66) and Charlie Beljan (68). First place at the Northern Trust Open is worth $1,206,000, which is $22,000 short of his best season on tour.

CHOI SHOOTS COURSE RECORD AT AUSSIE OPEN

MELBOURNE, Australia — South Korea’s Chella Choi set a new course record with a 10-under 62 and took a share of the lead after the third round of the Women’s Australian Open on Saturday.

TRIPLETT, LANGER SHARE ACE GROUP LEAD

NAPLES, Fla.— Kirk Triplett shot a 5-under 67 in windy conditions Saturday for a share of the second-round lead with defending champion Bernard Langer in the ACE Group Classic. Triplett matched Langer at 10-under 134 on TwinEagles’ Talon Course. Langer, also the 2011 winner and 2012 runner-up, followed his opening 64 with a 70. He won the season-opening event in Hawaii last month for his 19th Champions Tour title. SMOAK, MARINERS REACH DEAL

PEORIA, Ariz. — Justin Smoak and the Seattle Mariners have avoided arbitration by agreeing on a contract that guarantees the first baseman $2,787,500 and could be worth up to $8,287,500 over two years. Smoak will earn $2,637,500 this season under Saturday’s agreement, and Seattle has a $3.65 million option for 2015 with a $150,000 buyout. The deal contains several bonuses and escalators. He was Seattle’s last player in arbitration. CUBS SIGN BONIFACIO TO MINOR-LEAGUE DEAL

with four RBIs. “The middle of the order, we feel like we can drive the ball in the gaps or hit it over the fence,” Greiner said, “and we’ve got some guys at the top and bottom who can run. There are a lot of options as far as hitting and running. To get out here the first day and put up the numbers we put up, that’s just more confidence for us.” All that hitting made it easier on the USC pitchers. Jordan Montgomery pitched five scoreless innings in the first game, allowing three hits one walk and striking out four. He threw 81 pitches.

“I just tried to out there and hit my spots and try and get ready to go deeper in the season,” Montgomery said. “I mixed it up pretty well, threw inside pretty well. Hung a couple pitches I wish I hadn’t, but it was a decent outing.” Jack Wynkoop started the second game on a similar pitch count. He worked five innings and allowed two runs on six hits with one walk and six strikeouts. “We were trying to keep them at about 75 to 85 pitches,” Holbrook said. I thought they pitched great. I’ve seen them pitch better, but for their first time out and their first starts of the year, it was OK.”

MEN’S HOCKEY

Oshie’s 4 shootout goals lead U.S. past Russia BY GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press SOCHI, Russia— T.J. Oshie brainstormed while he skated to center ice, desperately trying to come up with one last move to end an epic shootout. He had already taken five shots at Sergei Bobrovsky, and the Russians were still even. Yet Oshie was chosen for the U.S. men’s hockey team with just such a situation in mind, and the shootout specialist concocted one last clever goal to silence an arena filled with screaming Russian fans. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and put the winner between Bobrovsky’s legs in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry. “I was just thinking of something else I could do, trying to keep him guessing,” said Oshie, the St. Louis Blues forward. “Had to go back to the same move a couple times, but I was glad it ended when it did. I was running out of moves there.” International rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie’s array of slick shots and changeof-pace approaches to the net. Oshie scored on the Americans’ first shot before taking the last five in a row, going 4 for 6 against Bobrovsky and disappointing a Bolshoy Ice Dome crowd including Russian President Vladimir Putin. “I aged a couple of years in that shootout,” Bylsma said. “We had other guys that are capable, but T.J. was the guy who was going well. It seemed like he was going to score every time he went.” Oshie’s final shot was a beauty: He threaded a forehand right through Bobrovsky’s pads, the puck punching the back of the Russian net emphatically enough to pop the water bottle on top into the air. “At some point, you think, ‘Does he have any more moves left?’” U.S. captain Zach Parise said. “But he did a good job. ... That’s hard to do, to get in a goalie’s head and throw him off a little bit.” Oshie was among the final selec-

American forward T.J. Oshie scored four shootout goals in the USA’s 3-2 victory to beat Russia during overtime at Winter Olympics on Saturday in Sochi, Russia. tions for the U.S. roster, and though the 27-year-old from Warroad, Minn., has never had a 20-goal NHL season, he leads American-born players with seven shootout goals this season. The U.S. men are only interested in the one that all but wrapped up an automatic berth in the quarterfinals next week. “I think you’re going to see T.J. Oshie become a household name after that display he put on,” said David Backes, Oshie’s teammate in St. Louis. “The kids will be out on the pond probably in Minnesota right now, throwing a 5-hole on the goalie three or four times in a row.” Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shoot-

out as the U.S. improved to 2-0. Captain Pavel Datsyuk scored two goals in regulation and another in the shootout for the Russians, who rallied from a third-period deficit in a fastpaced game. Russia also had an apparent goal waved off with 4:40 left because Quick’s net came off its moorings. “The U.S. team is a good team and a good test for us,” Datsyuk said. “We played good, but the result is not good.” The shootout finish was entertaining, but the entire game was international hockey at its most compelling — and the third period was a thriller. Pavelski scored the tiebreaking goal for the Americans on a power play with 10:33 to play, but Datsyuk tied it with 7:16 left during a Russian power play, spurring Putin out of his seat to

cheer. After review, the officials waved off Fedor Tyutin’s apparent go-ahead goal because the net was loose, incensing the crowd. Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov and Alex Ovechkin both felt Quick had intentionally dislodged his net earlier in the sequence. “I don’t know what happened there, but definitely was a goal,” Ovechkin said. “Nobody touched the net. Their goalie touched the net and put it out. But the referee has to see it and at least give him two minutes, you know?” Quick claimed he didn’t even realize the net had come unmoored. “You need to catch some breaks to win games,” he said. Both teams had quality chances in overtime, but Bobrovsky denied Patrick Kane on a breakaway in the most hair-raising moment. Oshie started off the shootout with a low shot between Bobrovsky’s legs, and the next four shooters missed before Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the third round. Datsyuk and Kovalchuk scored in the fifth and sixth rounds, respectively, but Oshie tied it twice in dramatic fashion. Datsyuk and Oshie both missed in the seventh, and Quick denied Kovalchuk again before Oshie ended it. “It was a good game, very interesting,” Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin said. “Two, I think, best teams played, and showed OK hockey. But shootouts is lucky.” The arena was packed to overflowing with fans of both nations jovially posing for photos and comparing their colorful sweaters. The Russians waved hundreds of flags, blew horns and banged drums from the first moments of warm-ups. Although the game had little impact on the medal race in Sochi, the finish woke up the echoes of a U.S.Russia rivalry best known for the “Miracle on Ice” at Lake Placid in 1980, when a team of American college students stunned the Soviet Olympic team. The sociopolitical impact of that game is long gone, and the nations have already met three previous times in the Olympics since NHL players joined the games in 1998.

OLYMPIC ROUNDUP

American skaters still without medal after suit change BY DAVID PACE The Associated Press

SOCHI, Russia — Maybe it wasn’t the suits after all. After shedding their new, high-tech skinsuits for their old-fashioned gear, American speedskaters still were without a medal at the Sochi Olympics. Zbigniew Brodka won Poland’s first gold medal in the men’s 1,500 meter, finishing just 0.003 seconds ahead of Koen Verweij of the Netherlands. It was the closest 1,500 in Olympic history. Verweij’s silver medal gave the Dutch 13 of the 21 medals awarded so far in the sport, including four golds. Traditionally, the U.S. team has been among the medal leaders halfway through the competition. Hoping to end the shutout, the U.S. had gotten IOC approval just hours before the 1,500 started to go back to its old suits. The new ones had been touted as the fastest the world has ever seen. Norway’s women crosscountry skiers were another

group whose past success failed to carry over into the games. The Norwegian women had not lost a 4x5-kilometer relay since 2009 and entered Saturday’s race as huge favorites, with a team that featured the top four skiers in the overall World Cup standings. By the time it was over, Sweden had the gold, and Norway was denied a spot on the podium, finishing 53.6 seconds behind the winners. On Day 9 of the Sochi Olympics, the U.S. hockey team won a shootout to defeat Russia 3-2 in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Medals also were being awarded in four other sports: Alpine skiing, ski jumping, skeleton, and short track speedskating. SPEEDSKATING

Brodka and Verweij were initially shown on the scoreboard to be tied for the top spot, but when the time was broken down to the thousandths, the victory went to Brodka in 1 minute, 45.006 seconds. Verweij was second in 1:45.009. The

ACC ROUNDUP

TOP 25 ROUNDUP

UConn beats Memphis 86-81 in overtime HARTFORD, Conn. — There are plenty of great guard tandems in the American Athletic Conference. UConn made a case Saturday that it might have the best. Shabazz Napier scored a career-high 34 points and Ryan Boatright added 21, eight in overtime, and the 24th-ranked Huskies beat No. 20 Memphis 86-81 to sweep the season series from the Tigers. The pair combined to make 20 of 24 free throws. Boatright added six assists, while Napier had four assists and five rebounds. They helped force 18 Memphis turnovers, while UConn committed just six. Memphis guard Joe Jackson had 24 points and seven assists to lead the Tigers (196, 8-4). Geron Johnson added 15 points and eight rebounds before fouling out. Chris Crawford added 12 points. The game was tied at 69 at the end of regulation and UConn opened the extra period on a 7-2 run. But Memphis cut it to 76-74 after a Michael Dixon hit a 3-pointer. Napier responded with one of his five 3-pointers and the Huskies held on. The UConn senior had a shot to win the game in regulation, but his fall-away 3-pointer at the buzzer bounced around the rim and out. Trailing 69-66 with less than a minute to go in regulation, Napier drove the lane, drawing Johnson’s fourth foul and completing the 3-point play to tie the game. DeAndre Daniels then blocked a layup attempt by Shaq Goodwin on the other end. The two teams scrambled for the loose ball. A scrum and some pushing ensued and the referees gave UConn the ball after reviewing the play on video. (7) KANSAS 95 TCU 65

LAWRENCE, Kan.— Perry Ellis scored a career-high 32 points, Andrew Wiggins added 17 and No. 7 Kansas overcame a sluggish start and a virtuoso performance by TCU’s Kyan Anderson in a 95-65 victory Saturday. Ellis also had eight rebounds and five assists, and Wayne Selden Jr. scored 15 points for the Jayhawks (19-6, 10-2 Big 12), who actually trailed by as many as six in the first half. Playing without injured center Joel Embiid and suspended forward Brannen Greene, Kansas still managed to build a 47-40 lead by the break. The Jayhawks then used a 13-1 charge out of the locker room to put away the Horned Frogs (9-15, 0-12) for the sixth time in seven meetings. (10) CINCINNATI 73 HOUSTON 62

CINCINNATI — The game plan has become common for Cincinnati. Play close games, and turn it over to the seniors in the end. It worked again on Saturday for the 10th-ranked Bearcats. Sean Kilpatrick scored 28

points, 19 in the second half, and Justin Jackson overcame foul problems to add 13 points, all in the second half, as the Bearcats shook off Houston, 73-62. Jackson and Kilpatrick teamed up to score 32 of Cincinnati’s 44 points in the second half to keep the Bearcats in the game until they could pull away. (11) IOWA STATE 70 TEXAS TECH 64

AMES, Iowa — It went into the books as a win for Iowa State. But after blowing an 18point lead in the second half, there wasn’t much for the Cyclones to celebrate. DeAndre Kane had 17 points with nine assists and No. 11 Iowa State sneaked past Texas Tech 70-64 on Saturday. Georges Niang also had 17 points for the Cyclones (19-5, 7-5 Big 12), who barely survived a huge late rally from the Red Raiders and won for the fourth time in five games. (12) SAINT LOUIS 64 VCU 62

ST. LOUIS— Dwayne Evans had 21 points and 10 rebounds and No. 12 Saint Louis broke a late tie with seven straight points, beating VCU 64-62 for its 17th straight victory on Saturday. The Billikens (23-2, 10-0 Atlantic 10) blew a 12-point second-lead before finally putting away VCU (20-6, 8-3) in a matchup of the Atlantic 10’s top two teams. Jordair Jett and Rob Loe had 14 points apiece for Saint Louis, which beat VCU for a third straight time. (16) IOWA 82 PENN STATE 70

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Melsahn Basabe scored 16 points and No. 16 Iowa pulled away from Penn State 82-70 on Saturday. Roy Devyn Marble added 15, Aaron White 14 and Mike Gesell 13 as the Hawkeyes (196, 8-4) won their fourth Big Ten road game of the season. Iowa’s three-game road winning streak in the Big Ten is its longest since 1998. Penn State (13-13, 4-9) was led by D.J. Newbill, who scored 22 points, but Tim Frazier was held to 11. The game was tied four times in the second half before Iowa stretched it out with a 14-4 run. Marble, the team’s leading scorer at 16.5 points per game coming in, pumped in seven of those and Mike Gesell converted on a 3-pointer from the corner to help the Hawks pull away.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.— Aaron Craft scored 14 points and No. 22 Ohio State held Illinois to 28.3 percent shooting on the way to a scrappy 48-39 win on Saturday.

Jordan McRae finished with 31 points for the Volunteers (15-10, 6-6), but his 3-pointer with 10 seconds left missed. Tennessee ended with up with another chance that set up Brown’s steal, though, as officials determined the rebound went out of bounds off a Missouri player. LSU 70

Paladins hold on to top Citadel 76-67

Late tip gives Gamecocks second straight SEC victory

GREENVILLE— Stephen Croone scored 23 points to lead Furman to a 76-67 victory over The Citadel on Saturday in the 200th meeting of the schools. Furman (8-17, 2-10 Southern Conference) led 38-27 at the half and stretched that lead to 48-32 with 16:01 remaining. The Bulldogs gradually cut the lead and were only trailing 67-60 with 3:19 left. Ashton Moore hit a 3-pointer with 1:43 left to close to 69-65, but the Bulldogs could get no closer. CROONE Furman won the inside game, making 30 points in the paint compared to 18 for The Citadel. William Gates Jr. had 12 points and Adonis Rwabigwi and Charlie Reddick added 11 apiece for Furman. Moore led The Citadel with 22 points. The Paladins have a 116-84 record against The Citadel, which has now lost 15 consecutive games. FGCU 84 USC UPSTATE 80

SPARTANBURG— Bernard Thompson scored 24 points and hot-shooting Florida Gulf Coast turned away South Carolina Upstate 84-80 on Saturday. The Eagles (17-10, 11-3) moved within a half-game of first-place Mercer (11-2) in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Chase Fieler added 17 points and Jamail Jones 14 for FGCU, who made 30 of 51 shots for 58.8 percent, including 11 of 19 from 3-point range for 57.9 percent. Upstate’s Ricardo Glenn had a career-high 24 points

and grabbed 11 rebounds for his conference-leading ninth double-double. Jodd Maxey added 16 points, Torrey Craig 14 and Fred Miller 10. Glenn made two free throws with 21.9 seconds left to get the Spartans (15-14, 8-6) within 82-80. After a FGCU free throw, Craig missed a 3-point try and another FCGU free throw sealed the outcome. Craig, who has led the conference in scoring the last two seasons, missed all nine of his 3-point attempts. CHARLESTON SOUTHERN 84 WINTHROP 64

CHARLESTON — Arlon Harper scored 17 points as Charleston Southern’s balanced scoring led to an 84-64 victory over Winthrop on Saturday. Harper shot 6 of 10 from the floor and finished with seven rebounds. Sheldon Strickland and Matt Kennedy scored 14 points each, both finishing with two 3-pointers for Charleston Southern (1113, 5-6 Big South). Cedrick Bowen added 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting, and Saah Nimley came off the bench to add 11. The Buccaneers shot 57.4 percent from the floor, 50 percent (9 of 18) from 3-point range, and 75 percent from the free-throw line. After leading by five, Charleston Southern closed out the first half on a 9-2 run and went up by 20 after scoring seven-straight points with 7:21 left to play. Joab Jerome and Andre Smith scored 12 points each to lead the Eagles (14-11, 7-5), who combined to shoot 36.5 percent from the floor.

BY WILLIE T. SMITH III Greenville News

did virtually everything right and fought back into contention. Behind Sindarius Thornwell and Mindaugas Kacinas, USC rallied past the Crimson Tide (10-15, 4-8). “What makes me proud is we’ve been in this moment a lot this year,� USC head coach Frank Martin said. “In early games in SEC play where we’ve had leads and we’ve given up the lead we haven’t folded, but we haven’t made the play that helped us stop the bleeding and go win the game. “Today, we were in control of this game the whole game. Then, all of a sudden, we were down four and our guys buckled in and made every play down the stretch. It’s fun to see that from a bunch of young kids.� USC switched to a boxand-one defense down the stretch with the 6-foot-5 Thornwell going man-toman on 6-0 Crimson Tide point guard Trevor Releford, who had scored 24 points.

COLUMBIA— It appeared Saturday’s Southeastern Conference game between Alabama and South Carolina would end the way so many Gamecocks games have this season. USC builds a big lead, watches it disintegrate and loses. While two of three of those things happened, South KACINAS Carolina reversed the most important one and earned a 67-66 victory in front of 8,186. USC (10-15, including 3-9 in SEC games) won back-toback league games for the first time since 2011. After leading by 12 in the second half, USC watched its advantage slowly melt away. But, after falling behind by four points with 3:06 remaining, a phenomenon happened – the Gamecocks

Releford did not score again until he drilled a meaningless 3-pointer at the buzzer. “I just wanted to face guard and stay above him because my help was behind me,� said Thornwell, who led USC with 22 points. “I just tried my best to not let him get the ball where he was comfortable and make it hard for him to score since he’s smaller than me.� South Carolina regained the lead on a Thornwell jumper with one minute left after Kacinas blocked an Alabama shot, rebounded it and quickly got it out to start the break. The Gamecocks went ahead for good when Kacinas made an acrobatic tip-in with 14 seconds remaining to give them a 65-63 lead. After USC got a stop on the defensive end, Thornwell sealed the win, making two free throws with five seconds remaining. South Carolina next plays at Arkansas at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

TIGERS FROM PAGE B1 Virginia’s players have done that Brogdon and Mike Tobey had 14 points each. The 6-foot-10 Tobey was a force underneath, making seven of nine shots. Gill had 12 points for the Cavaliers. Virginia continued a roll the school hadn’t seen since Sampson’s stellar days. The Cavaliers also won a sixth ACC road game, the first time that happened since Sampson’s senior year. The Cavaliers had already clinched their third consecutive winning mark in ACC play, something they last achieved in — you guessed it — during Sampson’s final three seasons. That’s got fans back home excited about what’s accomplished and counting on bigger things ahead. Brogdon said it gets hard to navigate at times with fan recognition and the delight they take in each victory. “I think as long as we can really block that stuff out, we’ll continue to play at a high level,� he said. Virginia came in with the nation’s top defense, allowing just 55.5 points a game this season. But Clemson’s defense is right behind, second nationally at 55.7, and stood strongly against the Cavaliers over the first 20 minutes. The Tigers showed some scoring punch early, making their first six shots and eight of their first 12 to lead 21-14 after DeMarcus Harrison’s 3-pointer with 8:30 left in the half. That’s when Virginia turned things up on both sides of the ball during a 12-0 run to move in front. Harris, who missed two foul shots moments earlier, had a driving layup to start the Cavaliers’ charge, then hit a pair of 3-pointers — the last which put Virginia in front for the first time, 24-21. Virginia eventually pushed the lead to 29-23 when Clemson rallied back with a three-point play and short banker by McDaniels. Harris missed a step-back 3, but Tobey had the strong tip in right before the horn sounded and Virginia went to the locker room ahead 31-28. Virginia shot 63.6 percent (14 of 22) in the opening half, while Clemson — 14th of 15 ACC teams in field goal percentage — was 11 of 22 for 50 percent. The Tigers were playing at home for the just the second time in four weeks after a gauntlet of road games (at Pittsburgh, at North Carolina, at Florida State, at Syracuse and at Notre Dame) where they went 1-4 with the lone win coming at FSU. Clemson ended the stretch with a 68-64 double overtime loss to the Irish. Clemson played without starting center in 6-foot-10 Landry Nnoko, who was out with the flu. Without him, the Tigers managed only five rebounds in the opening half.

SPORTS: Sumter took over second place in the Palmetto State league Saturday by extending their winning streak at the expense of Chester’s Cardinals. The score was 6 to 4. The victory was Sumter’s sixth straight in league competition and it put the Gamecocks only a half game behind Hartsville, current leaders.

Leirmoe agreed that “Our parent volunteers really pull it together.” She had high praise for all of the cast and crew, as well, and she said she’s been pleased that the males are “really good dancers. They love dancing like cowboys!” In fact, she said, Wilson Hall’s drama and chorus students “are all so talented. Ken Ballard is a phenomenal singer and actor, and he has such confidence on stage. He can really steal the show. All of our leads have beautiful voices.” Last year’s show was very well received, Leirmoe said, and many community members not connected to Wilson Hall attended. “On the last night,” she said, “we had to bring in extra chairs” to accommodate them all. Like “Guys and Dolls,” “Oklahoma!” is very family friendly, Leirmoe said. “I think the community will enjoy it just as much as, if not more than, ‘Guys and Dolls.’” One of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most popular musicals, “Oklahoma!” was first produced for Broadway in 1955. It has remained one of the most performed plays of all time, and many of its tunes are standards. Set at the turn of the 20th century, “Oklahoma!” is a love story about cowboys and the farm girls they admire. There’s a dangerous villain who’s trying to ruin their relationships, and a “triangle” of sorts involving a woman who can’t decide between two men. The primary love story is between Curly McLain, a ranch hand, and young Laurey Williams, who fall in love but are unwilling to admit their feelings. The song “People Will Say We’re in Love” brings this issue to a head. It’s a favorite of

The lot was overgrown with weeds, and another portion was occupied by a ramshackle garage and empty dwelling. The lot now has climbing red roses growing on the 5-foot fence enclosing it and is planted with 22 varieties of camellias, five varieties of azaleas, pink and white dogwood and flowering apple trees. It is also planted in centipede grass. A sprinkler system provides plenty of water for the entire lot. The property is owned by Osteen Publishing Co. • Testing has begun at proposed sites here for a cable television receiving antenna. The antenna would be used as part of the Community Antenna Television (CATV) service expected to be operational in Sumter by the end of the year.

Claremont Hotel Opened Its Doors Thursday Afternoon. Thirty-Eight Guests Spend First Night In Building.” “Sumter’s new $100,000 hotel opened its doors to the public Thursday afternoon (Feb. 2, 1913). The Gamecock City no longer needs to be ashamed for its lack of hotel facilities … The opening of the new hotel will also be welcome news to traveling men Sammy Way throughout the state REFLECTIONS who have to make Sumter on their rounds and who have for a number of years in the past grumbled at the condition of the old Hotel Sumter …. “Sumter’s new hotel, the Claremont, stands at the corner of Bartlette and Main streets, facing on the former street. It is a plain, substantial building four stories high and sufficiently large enough to accommodate a greater number of the traveling men stopping in the city over day or night. There are 77 guest rooms in the building, all of them arranged and equipped exactly alike. There are also five large sample rooms in the eastern part of the ground floor. Toilet rooms adjoin the sample rooms. The lobby is in the northwestern corner of the ground floor and is a room measuring 50 by 70 feet. “In the southwest corner is the dining room, a space 32 by 52 feet, which has a capacity for seating 75 people. In the fourth corner of the ground floor are the kitchen and pantries. On the second, third and fourth floors are the bedrooms, there being a bathroom for every third room. The two rooms on each side connect with the bathrooms. There are three bridal chambers, one on each floor; these are different from other rooms in that each one of them has its own bath and dressing room. On each floor there is a sun parlor, conveniently arranged for the use of guests of the hotel. “The building is a brick structure with a base of granite. It is constructed in the shape of the letter H in order that all of the rooms above the ground floor may be opened to the outside. The cost of the furnished building is given at $105,000, the Wise Granite Company of Richmond, Va., being the owners. “The ground floor of the dining room and lobby is of tile, carpet being used as covering for the floor of the dining room.

EW YORK — Drivers, here’s the bad news: You’ll be paying more for gasoline in the coming

weeks. The good news: You’ll likely pay less than last year. Or the year before, or the year before that. The price of gasoline held steady into early February, but an increase is almost inevitable this time of year. Pump prices have gone up an average 31 cents per gallon in February over the past three years. And although this year’s rise might not reach the heights of years past, there are reasons for drivers in some regions — like the Northeast — to worry about a painful spike. “We’re going to get increases, and they are going to be noticeable,” says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at Gasbuddy.com and the Oil Price Information Service. “We’re going to get that pop relatively soon.” The price of crude oil has risen 8 percent over the past month, to $100 per barrel. And analysts expect fuel supplies to begin to decline as refineries dial back production to perform maintenance and make the switch to summer fuels. Gasoline prices are already creeping higher. The nationwide average price has risen for seven days in a row to $3.34 per gallon, the highest level since October, according to AAA, OPIS and Wright Express. California, Connecticut and New York drivers are paying an average of $3.65 or more, the most in the lower 48 states. Montana and South Carolina drivers are paying $3.10 or less. But the nationwide average is not expected to quite reach its high point

‘We’re going to get increases, and they are going to be noticeable.’ TOM KLOZA Chief oil analyst Oil Price Information Service Gasbuddy.com of last year of $3.79 per gallon, set Feb. 27, never mind the highs of $3.94 in 2012 and $3.98 in 2011. AAA predicts a peak of between $3.55 and $3.75 per gallon. Gasoline prices are 8 percent lower than last year at this time, even though crude oil prices are about the same, in part because gasoline supplies are plentiful. Refiners have kept operations humming to meet increased demand for heating oil during the frigid winter, and have produced more gasoline as a result. But the stormy weather has left cars buried under snow, where they don’t use much gasoline. Now, however, with the end of the winter in sight, refinery output is expected to slow down as refiners conduct typical seasonal maintenance. Even refiners that are up and running sometimes reduce production at this time of year. They’ll soon switch to making more expensive summer gasoline that is formulated to meet clean air rules, and they don’t want to be stuck with unsold winter gas. That reduced production depletes supplies and causes gas prices to rise as the U.S. driving season approaches.

There are a few twists this year that could send prices higher than forecasters expect, though, especially in certain markets. Three crucial refineries that serve the Northeast have maintenance already underway or scheduled soon, according to Kloza. Delta Air Lines’ facility in Trainer, Pa., is finishing up maintenance and is expected to be back on line in a couple of weeks, according to analysts. The Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery in Philadelphia is also undergoing maintenance, and the giant Irving refinery in New Brunswick, Canada, is expected to go offline at the end of February, analysts say. If maintenance goes as planned and the weather in the Northeast stays nasty — suppressing demand for gasoline — prices shouldn’t spike too dramatically. But if something goes wrong at a refinery and people start hopping in the car again, prices could soar in New York and New England. Kloza says California and the Pacific Northwest are also at risk for higher prices because both regions rely so heavily on a relatively small number of refineries. Low supplies will be more difficult to replace than in the past because the U.S. is receiving fewer imports of gasoline and other fuels from abroad, while exporting more. Refiners often find it cheaper to send any excess fuel they produce abroad than to send it to other U.S. locations because of shipping rules that require domestic shipments to use a small fleet of U.S. boats, which charge higher rates. “The market may not take off, but there’s plenty of dry tinder, and I think it will,” Kloza says. “It’s going to get pretty interesting here over the next 45 days.”

Chamber to host forum for minority entrepreneurs BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com In partnership with First Baptist Missionary Church, the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce and Minority Business Outreach Council will offer an Entrepreneurs AwareBLACKWELDER ness and Resources Forum from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Chamber President Grier Blackwelder said the Chamber normally hosts a number of forums and seminars in different locations in the

Sumter area, but this will be the first one of these events hosted at a local church for minority business owners. The event is open to anyone interested in starting a business as well as those who are already business owners looking for tips, advice and discussion about best business practices. “We’ve had seminars for people in different places including at the Chamber, but we involved the church and the Minority Business Outreach Council to get more minority business owners involved,” Blackwelder said. “I want anyone who is in business now and having troubles and people thinking about going into

business for themselves to have the information and resources they need. If we have a room full, that’s great. If we only have three or four people, we’ll serve them as well.” A number of organizations and agencies will give presentations during the forum including Workforce Investment Activities for Small Businesses, Sumter Small Business Development Center and Services Corp of Retired Executives and South Carolina Commission for Minority Affairs, among others. “I’m extremely excited about this event and the impact it can have on our community,” said Rick Jones,

Minority Business Outreach Council chairman. “We’re bringing together leading small business development, and workforce development experts from across the region in one setting to deliver powerful information that will assist future and current entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses.” The event is free and open to the public, and seating is limited. The forum will be hosted in the fellowship hall of FBMC located at 219 S. Washington St. For more information, contact the Chamber at (803) 775-1231. Reach Raytevia Evans at (803) 774-1214.

New billing standards to help patients with debt

Some tips:

GOOGLE IMAGE

BY LINDA A. JOHNSON Associated Press Writer The last thing anyone wants to deal with after a serious illness or injury is a mountain of debt and repeated calls from bill collectors. Yet that’s the scenario in which many patients find themselves. Patients can avoid some of those headaches and minimize the risk they’ll need to file for bankruptcy protection. To do that, they must discuss costs and payment options early on with their hospital or medical provider, and be sure that they have tapped into any available discounts and financial assistance. But new standards, coming from government and the hospital and bill-collection industries, should make resolving disputes and paying bills easier and fairer for patients, experts say. That’s really needed as consumers face growing medical bills. Health care spending jumped from an average of $2,854 per person in 1990 to $8,915 per person in 2012, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, although the rate of increase slowed beginning in 2008 because of the Great Recession. Now employers are aggressively shifting health costs onto employees, through higher copayments and monthly premiums, bigger deductibles

and reduced co-insurance, which sticks patients with a bigger chunk of major medical bills — sometimes tens of thousands of dollars. For uninsured patients, it’s even worse. The number of working-age Americans who said they were having trouble paying medical bills or were paying them off over time hit 75 million, or 41 percent, in 2012, according to surveys by The Commonwealth Fund, a foundation working to make health care better and more accessible. Meanwhile, medical debt is a top cause of personal bankruptcies. “People are generally shocked when they find out what things cost. Try to negotiate (with the care provider). Talk to them up front,” says Mark Rukavina, founder of Boston-based Community Health Advisors. It works with hospitals across the country to develop financial assistance, billing and collection policies that meet new regulations. New industry guidelines for resolving disputes about medical debt, announced on Jan. 15, should help patients struggling financially. Although voluntary, they’re expected to be widely adopted because they were developed by groups including ACA International, an association of collection agencies, and the Healthcare Financial Management Association, which represents financial of-

GAO recommends changes for student debit cards

ficers at health care providers and insurance companies. Joe Fifer, HFMA’s president and CEO, calls the guidelines “mostly common sense.” Among other standards, they recommend making bills easy to understand, ensuring hospitals and collection agencies aren’t sending a patient bills at the same time, and notifying credit agencies when a billing dispute is resolved so it’s removed from the person’s credit history. Meanwhile, the Internal Revenue Service is expected to soon issue regulations, required by the Affordable Care Act, barring nonprofit hospitals — about half those in the U.S. — from charging uninsured patients more than the discounted rates for insured patients. The regulations also will include protections from abusive collections practices and require nonprofit hospitals to inform patients about available financial assistance and eligibility rules. Congress, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and some state legislatures and attorneys general also are studying how hospitals and collection agencies deal with patients with medical debt, with some bills to address issues already pending, Rukavina notes. In the meantime, patients getting expensive treatments should work with the provider to avoid sticker shock.

• If insured, review your policy to see what your deductible is and what other costs you could face. • Get cost estimates up front so you can decide whether to proceed or perhaps should delay elective procedures. • Contact the hospital’s financial counseling department before planned treatment or soon after emergency care. Ask about charity care, both from the hospital and government programs such as Medicaid. Even insured patients may be eligible. Joe Fifer, HFMA’s president and CEO, notes nearly all uninsured patients get discounts off the “list price” for hospital services, just as insured patients do. • Ask whether there’s a prompt payment discount, which can be 20 percent. If the bill’s not huge, perhaps you can put off other expenses. Otherwise, set up a schedule to pay the hospital over time. • Try to reach agreement with the hospital on what you’ll have to pay and the time frame — before it sends your case to a collection agency. If that happens, your credit could be damaged for years, affecting your ability to get a mortgage, car loan or even a job. • If the hospital doesn’t provide enough financial aid, contact the Patient Advocate Foundation. It helps patients with expensive chronic conditions or sudden large medical bills, offering copayment or insurance assistance, dispute mediation and other services. Go to www.patientadvocate.org or call 800-532-5274. • If pricey medication is adding to your debt, be aware that drug companies generally offer aid to patients taking their medicines. Also an industry group, the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, at www.pparx.org, helps patients without prescription drug coverage. • Check your credit report to make sure resolved bills or any errors are removed from your credit history. • If you can’t resolve issues, try contacting your state’s consumer protection bureau or attorney general, or the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for help.

‘They ( financial institutions) are pushing debit cards arrangements that are once again great for banks and great for colleges but can be terrible for students.’ REP. GEORGE MILLER, D-CALIF.

BY KIMBERLY HEFLING Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — Small fees add up for college students using college-issued debit and prepaid cards, which are often used to draw financial aid, and congressional investigators on Thursday urged greater oversight of their use. These types of cards are becoming more common on campuses and double sometimes as a student ID card. They are popular with both college administrators and many students because of the convenience, but using a third-party financial provider can also save colleges and universities money as they offer services such as distributing financial aid or making tuition refunds. The Government Accountability Office said the fees generally are similar to those other debit cards charge. But, it said, some students end up with outof-network ATM fees, and some cards have terms that charge a fee if students enter a pin number to receive money instead of signing to get cash back. It says it’s unclear how much money is garnered from these fees, but Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation staff members told GAO that it has received complaints from students of fees ranging from hundreds of dollars to more than $1,000, the report said. The GAO says contract terms between colleges and financial institutions should be more transparent. Students are supposed to have convenient access to aid money, and GAO asked the Education Department to define what that means in terms of access to ATMs. It also called on the department to develop requirements to ensure students know all their banking options. A response by the department included in the report said Education Department officials agree with the recommendations. The department has convened a rule-making session next week to address the issue. The National Association of College and University Business Officers has issued “best practices” guidance to colleges and universities that encourages them to keep students’ interests first, to negotiate low- or no-fee financial services and to make agreements transparent. “Just as colleges and universities strive to provide high-quality academic experiences for their stu-

dents, they must ensure that school-sanctioned services are also good consumer values,” the guidelines say. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau notes in the report that in one survey of school officials, 69 percent of schools said they already make available their arrangement with financial companies that spell out the terms of the partnership between the school and the company servicing the debit or prepaid card. But the bureau said students can have difficulty finding that information. In 2009, Congress passed a law that requires credit card companies to disclose relationships with colleges and universities. That law doesn’t include collegeissued debit or prepaid cards, according to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., said in a joint statement that it was troubling that students could see a dent in the amount of student aid available to them because of debit and prepaid card fees.

“Congress curbed aggressive and lucrative marketing on these products, but financial institutions are now back on campus,” said Miller, the ranking member of the House committee that oversees education. “They are pushing debit cards arrangements that are once again great for banks and great for colleges but can be terrible for students.” But, in a statement, Richard Hunt, the president of the Consumer Bankers Association, said the report shows that “arrangements with banks often benefit students and schools by offering reduced costs, convenience of use and valuable financial education.” He said association member banks have relationships with colleges and universities that “offer students products with transparent terms and the freedom to choose the products and services they use.” At least 850 schools, or 11 percent of colleges and universities, had agreements to provide the debit or prepaid cards as of last July, according to the GAO. It said these schools tend to be large and represent about 40 percent of all secondary students.

Experience the outdoors, even if it’s cold

I

t really didn’t feel that cold, the thermometer in the truck was hovering around 38 degrees, which isn’t all that bad for a hunting situation. I had on a pair of fatigue pants and a heavy shirt and thought I’d be O.K. for a little while. About 5:30 a.m. I pulled out and headed up the road to Gene’s pond to meet my son Robert and one of his buddies, Chris, from Florence for a quick goose hunt. McEarle Donald’s coffee finished Woodward off the prepaAFIELD & rations and I AFLOAT was on the road. I pulled into our preferred spot in the pasture just as the boys came driving in and we all began placing the few decoys that I own, put down a quick blind, so as not to have a repeat of the last hunt where we got caught out in the open and didn’t get a shot. Chip the Chocolate Labrador was having a ball running off some energy before the birds came in. Goose hunting take a little bit of observation and Gene had been watching the birds all week and had pretty much determined that they were coming in after 7:30 or so in the morning because they weren’t there when he went to work each morning and were there when I got home. While we were there fishing week before last, there were 16 on the pond when I arrived about 4:15 in the afternoon, so we really didn’t expect the birds to be in too early.

If you’ll remember last Saturday, it was right cloudy first thing in the morning and it was still almost dark when legal shooting time arrived. As our luck would have it, from across the distant swamp came the honk of a Canada goose. No way. We could hardly see and yet they were coming. As I began to honk on the goose call the arriving birds went into overdrive on their calling and lined up with the sound of the call and set their wings, this looked like a slam dunk! Really, did I really think it was going to be that easy? At the last second, the birds dropped down into the head of the pond and sailed right past us, slowly gliding onto the surface of the pond. I was ready to call the shoot until they passed between the three of us and the house that Gene and Beverly were still asleep in. It didn’t really seem appropriate to pepper the land owner’s house with bird shot. The birds slipped past us and landed about 50 yards away in the middle of the pond and began to swim in the other direction; seven birds going the other way. I devised a plan to walk down past the birds, then stand on the bank like a complete idiot, wave my arms and holler in hopes of jumping the birds and having them flay back to Chris and Robert. Well, after some waving and hollering, the birds were still there, so Chip decided to take matters into his own hands and went for a swim, that got’em up. Next problem, the birds flew past Robert and Chris, but too far away for them to

get a shot. The birds circled the pond a couple of times and to our amazement dropped as few feet in altitude, which prompted me to get back on the call. The geese went round and round and round the pond and finally, after almost calling my lungs out, the geese set up a little bit farther north than they had been setting up for their approaches and dropped a little more; dawn was also breaking and it was a wee bit lighter now. It was on! We decided that as they came across the lone Sweet Gum that was standing guard by the pond, we’d let ‘em have it. They swung just a bit wide of the tree, but still in excellent range as we brought our shotguns to shoulder. I swung on the third bird back, expecting the other two to pick on the lead bird, called the shot and touched the trigger; a miss. Shot number two; a miss, shot number three; a miss, and the geese just flew merrily along! Three guys fired three shots each and not a single person cut a feather on a bird that is 3+ feet long, has a 4 foot wingspan, and was 25 yards downrange. Go figure. Somehow, that 38 degrees began to seep into the garments that I was wearing and by 9:00 I was downright cold so we packed it up and went home. While the goose shooting and the population of geese that even came to the pond left a lot to be desired, I did get to spend the morning with my son, my dog and the great outdoors and anytime you can do that, I’d suggest you do it, even if it is cold.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Blind cows Tricia, left, and Sweety get acquainted at the Farm Sanctuary shelter in Watkins Glen, N.Y. After the shelter tried to find ways to help Tricia, 12, and blind since birth, a Canadian animal welfare group sent Sweety, 8, via special transport. She arrived on Feb. 4, and they have become best friends, playing in the grass, eating in the barn and grooming one another.

Border no barrier for rescuers uniting blind cows Two blind, aging cows were 350 miles apart, distressed and facing a dark future. What happened next is a love story starring, not cows, but rescuers who worked across international borders for nearly a month to bring the bovines together. It started when Sweety, an 8-year-old Canadian cow with a hoof infection, was rescued from the slaughterhouse by a horse sanctuary in Ontario. Workers at Refuge RR put out the word to the small legion of folks devoted to saving aging farm animals that she needed a permanent home. Farm Sanctuary in

ON THE NET: www.farmsanctuary.org www.refugerr.org Video of Sweet and Tricia’s first meeting: http://bit.ly/1fjCbI3

New York is just such a place and they had a 12-year-old Holstein named Tricia, who seemed lonely and anxious after losing her cow companion to cancer a year ago. Cattle are herd animals and she was the only one at the shelter without a partner. “It was exciting to think that by giving Sweety a new life, we might also give Tricia another chance to enjoy her own,” said Susie Coston, national shelter director for

the sanctuary. Tricia, who was born blind, has been at the Watkins Glen, N.Y., sanctuary since 2008, when she was saved from slaughter. There was red tape galore, medical exams for Sweety and finally a road trip to pick her up Feb. 4 at a veterinary hospital in Lachute, Quebec. Sweety arrived late that night and had to be given a cloth coat because she had lived in barns her whole life and her fur wasn’t thick enough for the cold. The two cows mooed at each other from separate corrals before they were united the next day. Nose to nose,

Sweety, tall and bony with a white triangle patch on her forehead, bumped into Tricia, shorter and thicker with blackand-white body swirls. They nuzzled one another. It didn’t take long for them to become BFFs (bovine friends forever), shelter spokeswoman Meredith Turner said. Sweety is still bumping into things, but Tricia often guides her clear of obstacles. They eat and walk together and even bed down in tandem. Love may be blind, Turner said, but for shelter workers, it was a matter of seeing and believing.

FISHING REPORT Santee Cooper System Striped bass: Fair. Captain Jim Glenn reports some striper catches in the vicinity of Wyboo Creek on Lake Marion. Live bait fishing with gizzard shad will be productive anchoring or drifting for striper. Fishermen are also having some success trolling at night and early in the morning on Lake Moultrie. Lake Murray Crappie: Slow to fair. Captain Brad Taylor says your best results are around 20ish feet of water, 10-12 down from the river down to middle part of the lake. Try tight-lining up the river. The fish are in a straight wintertime pattern. Use jigs tipped with minnows. The fish go shallow when the sun is up and a couple of sunny days should make improvement pretty quickly. Lake Wateree Largemouth Bass: Slow. Guide Dearal Rodgers reports that the water is cold and muddy, which for him is usually a bad combination. Bites are hard to come by but throwing a #8 Fire Tiger Shad Rap is a decent bet. Lake Greenwood Largemouth bass: Slow to fair. Veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter reports the whole lake is muddy and cold. Throw Fire Tiger crankbaits in 3-6 feet of water. Fish the mouths of big creeks and secondary points. Throw jigs around structure, but mostly fish rocky points. Lake Monticello Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the fishing for big fish continues to be really consistent. 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. The best bait schools are near ledges, points, humps or other depth changes so that you can fan cast to a variety of depths. If you can find bait with some arches under them or up in them, looking like they may be feeding, it’s probably worth dropping anchor. Lake Russell Striper: Fair. Guide Wendell Wilson says to fish in the 50-60 foot water depth range on the south end of the lake and hold at 25-30 feet deep. Drag bait through the tops of trees by pulling herring, shiner and medium minnows. Lake Thurmond Largemouth bass: Fair to good. Buckeye Lures in Augusta reports to fish about 15-25 feet down with mop jigs, in creek channels, leading to spawning areas. Generally the fish are still deep. Lake Wylie Largemouth Bass: Fair.

| FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that that fish are in a typical winter pattern, and the bite should get better and better unless temperatures increase and disrupt things. Fishing grubs such as Yamamato single tail grubs behind a ¼ or 3/16 ounce jighead around channel swings, points and at the mouths of creeks is producing, and on sunny days fish will move onto flats to feed. They will still stay near the creek channels, though. 20 feet of water is a good starting depth to target, but the key is finding the bait (schools of shad). Anglers are also having success throwing Alabama rigs in the same areas, and when water muddies up square-billed crankbaits, spinnerbaits and rattling baits are a good bet. As always in the winter on Lake Wylie fish can be caught near the lower and upper hot holes using a variety of shallow water techniques. Lake Jocassee Trout: Fair to good. Captain Steve Pietrykowski reports fish are still in the backs of creeks, also some fish are on major points of the main lake, but they are starting to move out to major points and ledges in the main lake and tributaries. Use live bait and troll slower, but you should get a couple of shots at bigger fish per day in the 40 foot range. Lake Keowee Striper: Very slow. Guide Brad Fowler says some limited results reported on U-rigs with most hits coming on the main channel because cold water in backs of creeks is being pushed out. Catfish: Slow. Fowler says the cold water is keeping things slow, but some results around 40 feet on main lake points. Use cut bait. Lake Hartwell Crappie: Slow to fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that some crappie continue to be caught around deep brush. Drop very small minnows or jigs right over the top of brush in 20-30 feet of water. Catfish: Slow. Captain Bill Plumley reports that with so much rain and cold water entering the lake the blue catfish have stayed out pretty deep. A few can be caught in the creeks on cut herring and gizzard shad, and the best depth range is 5-30 feet of water. This will vary from day to day and over the course of the day, as fish can move up when the shallows warm and draw baitfish. It is almost impossible to catch channels and flatheads when temperatures are this cold.

Myriad of modern family drama The Fosters’ Shows New Kind of Family addressed on ‘The Fosters’ Families come in all shapes, sizes and blends. That’s one of the reasons “The Fosters,” airing Monday at 9 p.m. on ABC Family, is so timely and relevant. Lena (Sherri Saum) and Stef (Teri Polo) are two moms who have created a blended family. Brandon (David Lambert) is Stef’s son from a previous marriage. They have adopted twins Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) and Jesus (Jake T. Austin). That would seem enough, but they also took on foster children Jude (Hayden Byerly) and his troubled sister, Callie (Maia Mitchell), during the first season of the show. Like all families, the Fosters have run up against many challenges. The drama, which is in its second season, covers a myriad of issues from coming-of-age teen angst to same-sex relationships and blending families. “It’s interesting. We did not set out to be an issue show,” says executive producer Peter Paige. “That’s not how we create story. Honestly, we don’t sit and go, ‘Well, you know, what’s really hot right now is immigration. So, we’d better do an immigration story.’ We much more go at it from what is going on with our characters, and how can we make this surprising and engaging for our audience. Because the truth is we love this family, and we want this family to be on the air forever. And the most amazing and subversive thing we can do is to keep America watching, right?” “And, also,” says executive producer Bradley Bredeweg, “when

you are dealing with a multicultural family like we have – the household is run by two women – you are going to bump up against those stories. They are going to appear naturally, and so we just run with that. Like Peter said, we never think of the headlines. We just let the characters speak to us, and that’s usually how the story presents itself.” Last season, Callie and Jude’s introduction to the family was rocky at first. But they grew closer and began to open up about their past. The brother and sister had a difficult time after their parents died. Callie developed a romantic relationship with Brandon, which created a great deal of drama for the family. Foster kids cannot date within the household. Callie ran away and has been going through counseling this season. Each situation on the show is dealt with in a real way, which is what makes it so relatable. Sexuality is a part of the story in many ways. One of the more poignant stories, and one the writers handle quite delicately, is Jude discovering who he is. “I told Peter and Bradley when they asked me what I would think if Jude was gay, I told them that I never thought Jude was gay. I thought he was shy, and he was a kid who had never had a friend before, and he was curious. I mean, that’s totally fine if he was gay, I told them. I told them that whatever they would want, I would do. That’s what I’m here for. But I never thought that he was. 2:30

I thought that he was a very shy and a very nervous kid. You know, Connor (Gavin MacIntosh) was his first friend and his only friend. So, I mean, I was always interested in the role. I’ve never read anything where I’ve been, like, ‘We need to talk about this.’ I’ve always been very excited about what they write.” The cast is closer than most. Polo says she and Saum have become the best of friends. “As an old actress that’s been doing this for 27 years, there has never been any other actor or actress in my career that I have ever bonded with, respected, appreciated, was grateful for in my entire career,” says Polo. “Sherri is not only one of the most amazing actresses I’ve ever met in my career, but one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever known in my life. We finish each other’s sentences, and we both have the same car. “Sherri’s pregnant and she had a little moment the other day. I’m, like, holding her and stuff,” continues Polo. “And I’ve got her legs up in the air and stuff so nobody could touch her. And I’m sitting by her like I’m her dog.” “It was so sweet,” says Saum. “Sherri’s one of those really annoying people who doesn’t even really look pregnant,” adds Paige about covering up the pregnancy for the show. “It’s just crazy. Our brilliant, brilliant costume designer, Deena Appel, takes care of it. The only thing that’s really happened is Sherri’s boobs have gotten spectacular.”
