School district heads oppose education bill

More sex victims possible

BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com Local superintendents are speaking out against the education bill proposed in the House of Representatives that could ultimately change the way teachers in S.C. are evaluated. Sumter School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Baker described the bill as premature, considering two pilot programs are currently in place. Although he is a firm believer in the importance of accountability, Baker said those two programs should be analyzed and assessed before putting any laws into place. “Several educational organizations, including the Superintendents Division of the South Carolina Association of School Administrators, have submitted position statements in opposition of House Bill 4419,” he said. “Again, accountability is essential, but bring educators to the table so we can work BAKER in collaboration to develop legislation, especially when it has this much of an impact on our teachers.” The legislation also proposes tying student performance and outcome to teacher evaluations and salaries. According to Clarendon 1 Superintendent Dr. Rose Wilder, this process would not be completely fair considering many factors can be attributed to teachers’ performances in classrooms, and teacher salaries in S.C. are already lower than the national average. “First and foremost, I have to say that teachers need to have direct input when it comes to evaluations. I feel there is a need for student outcome to be tied to evaluations,” Wilder said. “What I’m concerned about is student outcome being the sole factor in teacher evaluations, and that’s just not fair. As for salaries, there is a bill right WILDER now proposing bringing teacher salaries up to the national average. That’s something I would strongly support. Teachers are already grossly underpaid in the first place, so that should be addressed first.” Baker — along with Teacher Forum Chairman Trevor Ivey — thinks the current way of evaluating S.C. teachers is sufficient. S.C. school systems currently use ADEPT, the state’s system for assisting, developing and evaluating

Shannon Greens Golf Club has 18 holes, plenty of ponds and an island green. Each year, the Manning course hosts a well-attended tournament that draws golfers from across the area on Masters weekend — this year on April 11-12. What the course doesn’t have is as many golf carts as it once had. When course manager and golf director Dave Burton paid a visit to the cart shed on the morning of Sunday, Feb. 9, something wasn’t right. “That Sunday morning, I was down there looking at the carts, preparing for our upcoming tournament, and I noticed there was a space.

“Then I noticed there weren’t enough golf carts to cover the space.” Burton said he had “a bad feeling.” “We had 51 golf carts in the shed and a couple of customers’ golf carts,” he said. “I already knew there weren’t enough carts in maintenance to cover the space because I spent the whole Saturday in maintenance,” he said. “Sometimes there are four, five or six down there.” Burton said he went back up to the clubhouse and got the invoices for the carts and began marking off serial numbers. Eighteen carts were missing.

It was back to work for contractors on the Alice Drive widening project this week. With temperatures in the 70s, it’s hard to believe this work site was buried under snow and ice just a week ago. The storm caused no major delays in the schedule for the project.

Storm causes no major project impact BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com A week after all the ice has melted, work continues uninterrupted along Alice Drive, with lanes occasionally closing to traffic on Thursday while crews worked on a trench for an underground water line. With temperatures in the 70s, it’s hard to believe the project recently had to shut down because of snow. Last week’s ice storm caused some delays in the Alice Drive expansion project, but officials with the state Department of Transportation don’t expect the weather to have a major impact on their schedule. “We definitely lost some production dates,” said resident DOT construction engineer Jeffrey Wilkes. “They were off the project for four days.” Workers for contractor Palmetto

Corp. were unable to do any work on the project between Tuesday and Friday of last week, first because of heavy rains Tuesday, followed by sleet, snow and ice the rest of the week. Crews returned to work Monday. But just because the contractor couldn’t continue with road work doesn’t mean the workmen took it easy during their snow days. To protect the work done so far, crews moved in snow equipment ahead of the storm and worked through the week to combat the effects of the winter weather. “The contractor had a motor grader out there and manned the trailer on site during the storm to keep Alice Drive clear,” Wilkes said. “They rotated two people in and out of there from the start of the storm until Thursday afternoon.” Repeated calls to Palmetto Corp.’s project manager for Alice Drive were

not returned by press time. Despite the damage wrought by the winter storm across the state, Alice Drive didn’t suffer any damage that will set back the project. At this point, Wilkes said the lost production dates could likely be absorbed because the contractor expected to lose work days to bad weather. Officials are more concerned now with a delay in relocating power and water lines, which need to be rerouted along Alice Drive before crews can start paving the shoulders for expansion. By the end of the year, Alice Drive between Wesmark Boulevard and Wise Drive should be expanded to five lanes, including a center turn lane, with merge lanes for the two far lanes continuing south of Wise above Haile Street.

Code Red in action: Alert clerk helps with safe return of missing man BY JADE REYNOLDS jade@theitem.com It’s not a prank call. If you received an automated recording this past weekend with the description of a missing man, you experienced a “Code Red.” “The system is provided through the state Emergency Management Division, and we coordinated its use through (Emergency Director) Erik Hayes,” said McTILLMAN Tonyia McGirt, public information officer with the Sumter Police Department. “Whenever we have a situation that involves a young child, older adult or someone of any age with health concerns, time is

of the essence. In this case, we felt the county’s reverse-call system was a good way to spread the word among residents living near English Street.” James McTillman was reported missing by family members about 3:15 p.m. Saturday, and the 73-year-old was found about 8 p.m. that evening at a convenience store in Mayesville. “Ultimately, a clerk at The Station turned out to be the true heroine in this situation, enabling us to return Mr. McTillman home safely,” McGirt said. “Nicollette Brogdon noticed McTillman, realized something was amiss and notified authorities. We credit and thank Ms. Brogdon for her actions.” While she noticed the elderly man outside the store, at

first, Brogdon didn’t think much of it. “He was sitting there, minding his own business,” Brogdon said. “Well, he finally came in. He kept digging in his pockets and took out what looked like 10 different pairs of glasses. He kept saying, ‘I don’t have enough. I don’t have enough. I don’t know where my money went. “I kind of knew something was wrong with him, but I couldn’t really tell what. He didn’t seem like a person that had Alzheimer’s. There was no stuttering or nothing. He didn’t look like a sick old man. He looked like a regular old man, like a granddad or dad.” The woman behind him was prepaying for gas. He went back outside, Brogdon said, and when the woman went to

her vehicle to pump gas, she called him over to her. They both walked back in, and the woman bought him a 20-ounce drink and a banana. As he sat down to have his snack, the woman spoke to the clerk that started last July. “She said it sounded like he had Alzheimer’s and he had been walking for awhile,” Brogdon said. “So I called the chief of police in Mayesville.” She told him about the man and that he seemed confused, like he didn’t know where he was. “He told me my best bet would be to call dispatch,” Brogdon said. “I told them what was going on, what he looked like, how he was acting. They asked ‘what is his name,’ and I got his name. They said he was the man they were looking for.”

An officer came out and took a picture of the man to send back to the police station. “They had to make sure he was that person,” Brogdon said. “He didn’t have any ID on him.” Once he was confirmed as McTillman, Brogdon said she was relieved. “I’m just glad he’s safe,” she said. “I’m glad I was here to help. It made me feel really good. If my dad was missing, I would want someone out there to help me find my dad.” This was the first time the police department had used the Code Red system, McGirt said, and future use would be weighed on a case-by-case basis based on the sensitivity and urgency of the situation.

500 still without power throughout Clarendon County BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com By the end of the day today, a week-and-a-halflong nightmare for some 500 residents of the Santee area should finally come to an end. That’s when crews with Santee Electric Cooperative hope to have power restored to the majority of residents who have made do without electricity since the winter storm struck 10 days earlier. “We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work to get restored,� said Sonny Sanders, trustee for Santee District 1 in Clarendon County. “Crews have been working around the clock, in difficult weather conditions and at night with low visibility.� The Santee coverage area — with includes southern portions of Clarendon County along with Florence, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties — was among the worst hit with ice and freezing rain conditions during the most destructive winter storm South Carolina’s seen in a decade. Late Thursday, 502 families in Clarendon were still reportedly without power, out of 2,800 powerless across the Santee region.

That’s the highest number of affected households in the state this long after the storm. Of 20 regional co-ops across the state, only two others, Aiken and Edisto, were still reporting stormrelated outages Thursday, and both of those reported 500 or fewer members affected. Santee had 700 contractors deployed across the region this week, along with support crews from other electric co-ops that completed repairs of their own. But because of the extent of the storm damage, Sanders said some scattered outages may persist into next week. “Some areas are more devastated than others,� Sanders said. “They have to cut through downed trees or go through difficult terrain, and we have a considerable number of poles and lines down.� In several cases, electrical boxes on customers’ homes may have sustained damage or even been torn down, and have to be repaired by an electrician before the co-op can restore service. Even given the challenges, Santee has steadily reduced the number of affected customers from 6,500 just on Wednesday. As bad as this storm was for Santee members in Clarendon County, the rest of

the co-op’s service area had it even worse. On Thursday, Williamsburg County still had double the number of households, 1,145, without power for the second week. “Williamsburg had more outages than any county in the state,� Sanders said. “and Georgetown was second.� Residents may be understandably frustrated by the lengthy outage, but the local trustee says it’s not for a lack of concern on the

part of the co-op. “We have board members and linemen still without power,� he said. “They’re as

affected as every other customer.� Reach Bristow Marchant at (803) 772-1272.

Applications for jobless benefits drop to 336K WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits fell a slight 3,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 336,000, a sign that layoffs remain low. The Labor Department said Thursday that the four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, rose slightly to a seasonally adjusted 338,500. The average is roughly in line with pre-recession levels and indicates that companies are cutting few jobs. Applications are a rough proxy for layoffs. The number of applicants has stabilized in recent weeks despite modest levels of hiring in January and February. When applications for unemployment benefits remain fairly steady from week to week, it suggests that businesses are confident that customer demand will be strong enough to justify retaining their workers. A total of 3.53 million Americans received benefits as of Feb. 1 — the latest period for which figures are avail-

able — up from 3.52 million the previous week. In recent months, snowstorms and frigid weather have contributed to a slowdown in hiring, retail sales and home construction. A scant 113,000 jobs were added in January. That follows the addition of just 75,000 jobs in December. Job growth for the past two months is only about half the monthly average for the previous two years. Some positive signs did emerge in January’s jobs report. The unemployment rate reached a five-year low of 6.6 percent. The decline from 6.7 percent occurred because more of those out of work found jobs. It was an improvement from December, when the rate fell mainly because many of the unemployed stopped searching for work. The government counts people as unemployed only if they are actively looking for a job. Builders broke ground on new homes last month at a seasonally adjusted annual

Job seekers arrive to meet prospective employers recently during a career fair at a hotel in Dallas. The Labor Department reports on the number of people who applied for unemployment benefits for the third week of February on Thursday. rate of 880,000, down 16 percent from December, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. And retail sales plunged a seasonally adjusted 0.4 percent last month, the second straight monthly decline. Most analysts think the

economy will grow roughly 3 percent this year, which would be the strongest expansion since 2005. But the severe winter weather has caused many analysts to revise down their forecasts for the current January-March quar-

ter. Macroeconomic Advisers last week reduced its quarterly growth estimate to a 1.7 percent annual rate from an earlier forecast of 1.9 percent. Moody’s Analytics cut its forecast to a 1.9 percent annual rate from 2.2 percent.

S.C. archaeologists race to uncover Civil War prison COLUMBIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Racing against time, South Carolina archeologists are digging to uncover the remnants of a Civil War-era prisoner-of-war camp before the site in downtown Columbia is cleared to make room for a mixed-use development. The researchers have been given four months to excavate a small portion of the 165-acre grounds of the former South Carolina State Mental Hospital to find the remnants of what was once known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp Asylum.â&#x20AC;? Conditions at the camp, which held 1,500 Union Army officers during the winter of 1864-65, were so dire that soldiers dug and lived in holes in the ground, which provided shelter against the cold. The site was sold to a developer for $15 million last summer, amid hopes it becomes an urban campus of shops and apartments and possibly a minor league baseball field. Chief archaeologist Chester DePratter said researchers are digging through soil to locate the holes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the largest being 7 feet long, 6 feet wide and 3 feet deep â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as whatever possessions the officers may have left behind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost everybody lived in holes, although the Confederacy did try to procure tents along the way, as they could obtain them,â&#x20AC;? said DePratter, a research archaeologist with the University of South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology. DePratter said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to track down about 40 diaries written by camp survivors, telling tales of suffering and survival, as well as dozens of letters written by the prisoners about their experiences. He said they came from states across the North, and from many different military units. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine. They all talk about their clothing being threadbare, many of them had no shoes. They shared the blankets they had, three or four together spoon fashion and put a blanket over themâ&#x20AC;? to stay warm, DePratter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wrote about how every prisoner in the camp would walk about at night to keep from freezing to death.â&#x20AC;? Amazingly, only one officer died there. Officers were useful for prisoner exchanges, so they were shuttled from site to site as the war progressed. The enlisted men were sent to the notorious prison at Andersonville, Ga., where 12,000 Union soldiers died of illness and privation. The officers, however, were held in Richmond, Va., then Macon, Ga., before being sent to Savannah and Charleston. After a yellow fever outbreak in Charleston, they were brought to Columbia, where they were put in an open field dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp Sorghumâ&#x20AC;? on the western side of the Congaree River across from Columbia.

Crews on Jan. 30 excavate the site of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp Asylum,â&#x20AC;? the Civil War-era prison that once held 1,500 Union officers on the grounds of the state mental hospital in Columbia in the waning days of the Civil War.

Everything the crew finds is going to be held for preservation and study through the archaeology institute, he said.

DISTRICT

MOSS FROM PAGE A1

FROM PAGE A1 messages, instant messaging or social networking sites.â&#x20AC;? On Feb. 11, the Sumter School District became aware of possible inappropriate behavior between a staff member and a student, so they contacted law enforcement and placed Moss on paid administrative leave. Galloway said because it was a personnel issue, staff members were not notified when the investigation began. However, Superintendent Dr. Frank Baker and Principal Lashawnte Sarvis met with the Chestnut Oaks faculty members early Thursday morning. Sumter school board members were informed about the incident on Wednesday once the Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office filed charges against Moss. School board member the Rev. Ralph Canty said although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only an allegation, the news was unsettling, and he regrets the issues it may cause for the alleged victim and families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found the news disheartening, and I regret the hurt and pain this may have caused any victims and their families,â&#x20AC;? Canty said. Canty said Sumter School District is doing all it can to secure the safety of the children and the faculty and staff. Galloway said letters were sent out to parents Thursday afternoon regarding the incident, and counselors are also available to speak with students who may be having difficulties with the situation. Mossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; position as a music teacher and choir director will be filled permanently depending on the availability of certified/qualified teachers. Until the school district finds a permanent replacement for Moss, Galloway said it may have to hire a long-term substitute teacher. Reach Raytevia Evans at (803) 774-1214.

The school district conducted an investigation into the issue before contacting the sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office with its findings. The sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office held a press conference Thursday morning to discuss the case openly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school received a report they investigated, and they found that the contact was inappropriate through the Facebook messages,â&#x20AC;? said Senior Investigator Darlene Dellinger with the Sumter County Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the victims had saved the messages from Moss, and subsequently, the school accessed those messages, which is how the sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office was brought into the investigation.â&#x20AC;?

COMMENTARY

The myth of ‘settled science’

W

ASHINGTON — I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take a non-climate example. It was long assumed that mammograms help reduce breast cancer deaths. This fact was so settled that Obamacare requires every insurance plan to offer mammograms (for free, no less). Now we learn from a massive randomized study — 90,000 women followed for 25 years — that mammograms may have no effect on breast cancer deaths. Indeed, one out of five of those diagnosed by mammogram receives unnecessary radiation, chemo or surgery. So much for settledness. And climate is less well understood than Charles KRAUTHAMMER breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today’s climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken? They deal with the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, argues Dyson, ignoring the effect of biology, i.e., vegetation and topsoil. Further, their predictions rest on models they fall in love with: “You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real.” Not surprisingly, these models have been “consistently and spectacularly wrong” in their predictions, write atmospheric scientists Richard McNider and John Christy — and always, amazingly, in the same direction. Settled? Even the U.K.’s national weather service concedes there’s been no change — delicately called a “pause” — in global temperature in 15 years. If even the raw data is recalcitrant, let alone the assumptions and underlying models, how settled is the science? Last Friday, Obama ostentatiously visited drought-stricken California. Surprise! He blamed climate change. Here even The New York Times gagged, pointing out that far from being supported by the evidence, “the most recent computer projections suggest that as the world warms, California should get wetter, not drier, in the winter.” How inconvenient. But we’ve been here before. Hurricane Sandy was made the poster child for the alleged increased frequency and strength of “extreme weather events” like hurricanes. Nonsense. Sandy wasn’t even a hurricane when it hit the U.S. Indeed, in all of 2012, only a single hurricane made U.S. landfall. And 2013 saw the fewest Atlantic hurricanes in 30 years. In fact, in the last half-century, one-third fewer major hurricanes have hit the U.S. than in the previous half-century. Similarly tornadoes. Every time one hits, the climate-change commentary begins. Yet last year saw the fewest in a quarter-century. And the last 30 years — of presumed global warming — has seen a 30 percent decrease in extreme tornado activity (F3 and above) versus the previous 30 years. None of this is dispositive. It doesn’t settle the issue. But that’s the point. It mocks the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier” — an echo of Holocaust denial, contemptibly suggesting the malevolent rejection of an established historical truth. Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there’s more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads. If you whore after other gods, the Bible tells us, “the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit” (Deuteronomy 11). Sounds like California. Except that today there’s a new god, the Earth Mother. And a new set of sins — burning coal and driving a fully equipped F-150. But whoring is whoring, and the gods must be appeased. So if California burns, you send your high priest (in a carbon-belching Air Force One, but never mind) to the bone-dry land to offer up, on behalf of the repentant congregation, a $1 billion burnt offering called a “climate resilience fund.” Ah, settled science in action.

NOTABLES & QUOTABLES GOVERNMENT SHOULDN’T PRESSURE FOR COVERAGE In “The FCC Wades Into the Newsroom,” Ajit Pai writes: “The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.” Read it online at www.wsj.com: Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring. The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about “the process by which stories are selected” and how often stations cover “critical information needs,” along with “perceived station bias” and “perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.” The FCC says the study is merely an objective fact-finding mission. The results will inform a report that the FCC must submit to Congress every three years on eliminating barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the communications industry. This claim is peculiar. How can the news judgments made by editors and station managers impede small businesses from entering the broadcast industry? And why does the CIN study include newspapers when the FCC has no authority to regulate print media?

LINCOLN STILL HAS A LOT TO OFFER In “What Would Lincoln Do?” Richard Brookhiser writes, “Modern-day leaders could learn a lot from our 16th president.” Read it online at www.wsj.com: Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday we marked this past holiday weekend, had less leadership experience than almost any earlier president. George Washington and Andrew Jackson had been generals, several other presidents

had been governors, and all the Southerners had owned plantations. They had run organizations and managed men. President Lincoln, by contrast, was a former state legislator, a one-term congressman and the senior partner of a two-man law firm; he kept his most important papers filed away in his hat. And yet Lincoln filled the office of president so effectively that he regularly tops historians’ rankings of great presidents. It helped, of course, that he was one of the greatest writers in the American canon — certainly the greatest ever to reach the White House (Jefferson at his best could be equally good, but his range was narrower). Leaving aside such extraordinary talents, which of Lincoln’s principles of action can guide his successors? Cite precedent; Make your case; Humor helps; Principles first; Be inclusive.

UNWORKABLE CONTRAPTION OF NONPERFORMANCE In “The Rube Goldberg Democrats,” Dan Henninger writes: “ObamaCare is the party’s unworkable contraption of nonperformance.” Read it online at www.wsj.com: Out in the world beyond what Washington manufactures and spins, no one would get away with putting out a product as flawed as ObamaCare. Today’s public won’t accept that kind of performance. From the largest consumer-product companies down to the local sandwich shop, you’ve got to deliver the goods at a sustained level of competent execution. Except the government. And the Democratic Party is nothing if not the party whose identity is bound up with government services and the public unions that deliver those services. For decades, voters have passed off this mediocrity as the sometimes maddening bureaucratic price for living in a large, complex country. No longer. With every new reboot of ObamaCare — glitches to the horizon, the constant revision of the law’s rules, policies canceled and resurrected at higher cost — more of America’s workaday Dilberts are seeing that the Democrats’ performance benchmarks would get anyone else fired. Nowhere else could you get

away with arguing a product like this is at least better than nothing. The GOP could still blow their historic opportunity this year. Brands collapse because consumers have good choices. It may be true that ObamaCare has exposed the Democrats as a party of bells, whistles and rotating pinwheels. But absent a better product, it will lumber forward.

SID CAESAR ON HANDLING POLITICAL MATERIAL Comedian Sid Caesar, who died recently at age 91, on how comedy reflects the culture it comes from. This excerpt is from his 2003 memoir, “Caesar’s Hours:” Comedy reflects the culture it comes from. There once was, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the show.” It’s now hi, how’s everybody doing? That’s a subtle but very significant change. There’s a style, a level of refinement that is gone. The language used today would not in anyone’s wildest dreams have been used on television when we were starting out. ... We couldn’t go for a cheap joke or a shock joke. We had to be funny on our own. These limitations made us think. Instead of going for the easy laugh with profanity or an offcolor remark, we always had to be creative and come up with something that was both funny and clean. We drew from real life. Things aren’t funny, people are funny. We would never have a guy walk into a room with a piece of toilet paper stuck to his heel. We had to be subtle. I believed then, and still do, that if you’re an entertainer, especially a comedian, you can be satirical, but you can’t engage the government head-on. There is a very thin line between being a politician and an entertainer. You can’t knock the entire system because you never really know what’s going on inside and why certain decisions were made. My job is to make you laugh and make you happy. My personal opinion is my own. I don’t want to know how you vote, and you don’t need to know how I vote.

CARTS FROM PAGE A1 “They didn’t take any of the private carts; they only took ours,” he said. “Within the hour, I called the owner and then called the police,” he said. Burton said he called in the maintenance man, who was off that day. Burton told him, “You don’t have any back there I know, but I just want to look.” They began searching the neighborhood with one of the members. A sheriff ’s officer came out. “I talked to them for 30 minutes or so, and they did a report,” he said. Burton said they knocked on doors in the neighborhood, and no one had heard anything. “We are thinking they came at nighttime,” he said. “Either Friday or Saturday night. Saturday’s weather was bad, it was raining, so we didn’t pull carts out.” Burton said everything was locked. “They either picked the lock or somebody got them a key, we don’t know.” The owner, who Burton said was out of town, suggested they check the back roads in the area. “Maybe the truck pulled in there, and maybe they ran the carts over the hills at night,” he said. “There were no tracks.” Burton said he thinks

they must have pulled a large truck right up to the cart shed. “It is kind of quiet and dark. You got a few houses here, some older folks live there and a few houses farther up,” he said. “It’s the same thing, nobody heard anything.” Burton said they had had a few problems in the past, but mostly it was kids taking carts for a joy ride, but this would appear to be a well-planned operation. He said he could recall something similar happening to the Royal Oaks course. “That’s the course between here and Wyboo, that’s shut down,” he said. “A few years ago, somebody cut their fence up and took a bunch of carts.” Burton told the sheriff ’s office the carts are worth more than $3,600 each, for a total of nearly $65,000. “Even if they just sell the batteries, that is probably $600 per cart,” he said. As of Wednesday, he had not heard back from the police. “I’ve been telling all the other golf courses to keep their eyes open so it doesn’t happen to them,” he said.

PREP BASKETBALL PLAYOFFS

Lady Knights’ quick start leads to rout of Swansea

BY EDDIE LITAKER Special to The Sumter Item

The Crestwood High School varsity girls basketball team’s quest for Columbia began on Thursday at The Castle with a commanding 68-20 thrashing of Swansea to open the 3A state playoffs. “I think tonight we were trying to come out to be more aggressive because we know in the

state playoffs it’s do or die and we’re not ready to put up our uniforms just yet,” said Lady Knights head coach Tony Wilson, whose team improved to 22-3 on the season. “I told the girls we’ve just got to stay focused and play hard. We can’t look past anybody if we want to get where we want to be in March (playing for the

the middle two quarters. Sumter led 15-10 at the end of one, and kept that same margin thanks to Parker’s eight second-quarter points – six of which came on a pair of 3-point baskets. Parker added seven in the third quarter. Kershaw was the main target early and late for Sumter. He had five points in the first quarter and six in the fourth as the Gamecocks began to pull away, outscoring AHS 14-6 in the frame. SHS had balanced scoring most of the night, though. Erik White, Sonny Butler, Micah McBride, Cedric Rembert and Sterling Ta’Bon all contributed four points or more.

With a disappointing loss to West Florence High School earlier in the week that dropped the Sumter High girls basketball team to a No. 2 seed for the 4A state playoffs, head coach Chris Vandevander was wondering how her squad would respond on Thursday. The answer was somewhat slow at the start, but strong at the end. Shiniyah Brown scored a gamehigh 14 points, including eight in the fourth quarter – three of which came on a much-needed trey that gave the Lady Gamecocks some breathing room as they went on to defeat Lexington 45-35 in the first round of the playoffs at the SHS gymnasium. Sumter, now 16-6 on the season, will travel to Goose Creek on Saturday for a second-round matchup. “I was worried about how we’d bounce back,” Vandevander said. “But I think our bench was a little deeper. We didn’t rebound the ball very well, and we need to make a few more shots VANDEVANDER in the next round than we did tonight.” The Lady Gamecocks led by as many as 13 in the second half, but a late surge by the Lady Wildcats pulled them within 34-32 in the fourth. Brown’s 3-pointer made it 37-32 and she added five more before the game was over as SHS rebuilt a double-digit advantage by the final buzzer. “That was huge with them coming on hard,” Vandevander said. “We ran the set play for her and she was able to knock down the shot.” The game didn’t start as strongly for Sumter, which missed its first five shots and fell behind 4-0 on Taylor Foulks’ two baskets. Foulks finished with 11 points for LHS. Those were the only two Lady Wildcat points of the quarter, however, as SHS turned up the pressure on both ends. Free throws from Kedejuha Kennedy and Cydanisha Cooper tied the game at 4-4. Those were part of a 12-0 run with which the Lady Gamecocks closed out the quarter. Cooper, Anna McBride, Jessica Harris and Brown recorded buckets during the run. Sumter made it a double-digit lead early in the second, getting four points from Brown in the frame, but four points from Makayla Dumas helped Lexington cut the deficit to 20-11 at the break. It was bad news all around in the

More work to be done SHS boys top Aiken 54-39 in English’s playoff coaching debut BY JUSTIN DRIGGERS jdriggers@theitem.com Maybe it was rust from the recent inactivity, but the Sumter High School boys basketball team wasn’t completely satisfied with its 54-39 victory over Aiken on Thursday in the first round of the 4A state playoffs. “They’re not disappointed; they just know they can play better,” head coach Jo Jo English said. “We made some uncharacteristic mistakes tonight on both sides of the ball.” Mistakes aside, Sumter got big nights from Brandon Parker and Quentin Kershaw and used a 9-1 run to start the fourth quarter to pull away from the Hornets and into the

second round. Sumter, now 17-5 on the season, will host Bluffton on Saturday in the second round. Bluffton beat Blythewood 58-50 on Thursday. “Our post players gave us some big tip-ins,” English said. “That’s going to be key for us as we continue on. They’ve got to be able to make shots, block shots and get rebounds.” ENGLISH Parker and Kershaw were up to the task. Parker had 11 rebounds to go with his 17 points while Kershaw had 11 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. Most of Parker’s damage came in

Lady Gators cruise to 73-33 playoff win over MV BY DENNIS BRUNSON dennisb@theitem.com Two minutes into the 3A girls basketball state playoffs first-round game between Lakewood High School and Midland Valley, the winner had been determined. And Midland Valley made a long trip from Graniteville to receive such a quick verdict. Lakewood scored the game’s first 13 points and the Lady Mustangs never got the deficit under 11 points the remainder of the way as the Lady Gators went on to a 73-33 victory at The

Swamp. Lakewood, which improved to 16-7 on the season after finishing second in Region VI, will go on the road Saturday to face Myrtle Beach. The Lady Seahawks, a No. 1 seed, beat Hanahan 58-32 on Thursday. The Lady Gators came out using pressure to force turnovers that were turned into easy baskets.

MARANA, Ariz.— Getting to the round of 16 in the

Match Play Championship was all that mattered Thursday. Jordan Spieth made it look like child’s play. Graeme McDowell aged another 10 years with another stunning escape. And it proved too difficult for Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy, who lost in extra holes on another wild day at Dove Mountain. One day after he rallied from 3 down with three holes to play to win in overtime, McDowell was two holes behind on the 15th tee when he made an 8-foot birdie, halved the next hole with a 10-foot par, won the 17th with a birdie and then holed a 6-foot par putt on the 18th for a 1-up win over Hideki Matsuyama of Japan. Jason Day already has played 40 holes in two rounds. He won a tough match against Thorbjorn Olesen in the opening round, then rallied from 3 down early in his match against Billy Horschel and beat him 22 holes. The top seeds lost their way.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Denny Hamlin is undefeated on the season after winning the second Daytona 500 qualifying race, that ended with a violent last-lap crash in which Clint Bowyer’s car flipped upside down. The accident began when defending Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson’s car ran out of gas as the field raced toward the checkered flag.

Suddenly, Swansea found some offense with a 2 from Naomi Chance and a trey from Rodneisha McNeal to close the first and another two from Monique Johnson to open the second. The rally would prove to be the Lady Tigers’ one big gasp as the Lady Knights closed the half on a 19-2 run for a 35-9 halftime lead. “When the game started we jumped out in a little press and they turned the ball over at times,” Wilson said. “Then we just got relaxed and let them make a little run. I guess we got a little winded, but we came back, got the focus back and put it back on them.” Swnasea managed just an Alexis James free throw in the third period as the Crestwood advantage bulged to 57-10

“That’s how you win games – playing inside and outside on both offense and defense,” English said. “We were able to that a little bit tonight. We took too many jump shots, but the guys were able to battle and pull out the victory.” Aiken stayed in the game thanks mostly to its top two scorers in Stacy Toole and Dramel Coleman. The duo combined for 30 of the Hornets’points, and Toole scored nine of their 16 second-half points. They also accounted for 18 of Aiken’s 23 first-half points as the Hornets kept pace for most of the first three quarters. AHS was down five at the break and just seven before the start of the final period. “We gambled a lot on the defensive side,” English said. “We had a lot of mistakes and a lot of breakdowns. It might not seem that way, but we did. “That’s something we’ll work on (today). We’ve got to get back to playing fundamentally sound on defense.”

Cawasha Ceasar topped the Lady Knights with 14 while Briana Pressley had a big game in transition to finish with 10. Ceasar and Pressley led nine Crestwood players in the scoring column. “Anytime you can play nine girls in a playoff game, it’s huge because of the experience (they gain),” Wilson said. “We just wanted to come out and play hard because we know in the playoffs anything can happen. I was watching the game last night and saw that No. 1 Syracuse got beat by Boston College, so anything can happen in the game of basketball. I told the girls that the next round will be tougher, so we can celebrate this tonight and tomorrow we will go back to the drawing board.” Crestwood next plays Wilson on Saturday at 7 p.m. at The Castle in the second round of the playoffs. Wilson beat Stall 59-50 on Thursday.

What messages are commercials conveying? BY KEVIN MCDONOUGH Olympics coverage (8 p.m., NBC) enters its final weekend. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fun, but the limitations of the present broadcasting model are beginning to become painfully obvious. As on every day of the games, tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime-time menu of alpine skiing, short track and speed skating will be old news by the time they are shown on network television. It used to be rather easy to avoid the desktop computer in order to â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretendâ&#x20AC;? you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the outcome of these contests. But now, with everyone seemingly attached and addicted to tablets and smartphones, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tad difficult to maintain the delusion. How many viewers of last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S.-Russian hockey game were â&#x20AC;&#x153;surprisedâ&#x20AC;? when it was finally broadcast? Given the atmosphere of fear and foreboding leading up to the games, we can consider ourselves lucky that the most controversial moment to emerge was the moment when reporter (and former Olympian) Christin Cooper made bronze medalist Bode Miller cry over the death of his brother. Viewers seem to have hated this, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing. After too many Olympics stories contorted into â&#x20AC;&#x153;specialâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;poignantâ&#x20AC;? moments, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for a viewer backlash against gruesomely obvious emotional manipulation. Speaking of weird manipulation, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been paying special attention to some of the commercials accompanying the games. Three â&#x20AC;&#x153;messagesâ&#x20AC;? stood out to me. In one, a man slips into an expensive luxury vehicle and is joined by an unseen woman in the passenger seat. After embarking on some domestic chitchat, he looks over and exclaims, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not my wife!â&#x20AC;? To which, the gorgeous young thing with come-hither eyes,

replies, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know.â&#x20AC;? So this ad basically says that buying (or leasing) this expensive sedan will help you cheat on your wife, or at least fuel the adulterous side of your Walter Mitty daydreams. It seems aimed at men too old for lite beer bikini car wash fantasies but not yet parked in the Viagra demographic. In another ad, a teenage baby-sitter getting a drive home in a well-appointed SUV surveys the lavish interior and decides, on the spot, to raise her rates. This ad seems to appeal to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind turning their baby-sitters into scheming little liars, or feel so insecure that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend tens of thousands of extra dollars to impress somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16-year-old daughter. The anxiety this ad exploits is not gender-specific. Another shows a gas station where happy people mingle to the strains of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cheersâ&#x20AC;? theme. But when the driver of a hybrid walks in, the music stops and the tone becomes grim. Apparently, freedom from frequent fill-ups has made the driver a stranger. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be a good thing. The lesson here: expensive technology doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just leave you lonely, it makes the very idea of community and friendship seem repulsive and outdated. Human contact: thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so 20th century!

JEFF MACNELLY’S SHOE

Woman avoids spending time with in-laws DEAR ABBY — I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years and we have two children. My life should be Dear Abby perfect, and it is -- until ABIGAIL it’s time to VAN BUREN visit my inlaws. We don’t see them more than a few times a year, but I’ve taken to pleading work as an excuse not to see them on holidays or special occasions if I can avoid it. I have even spent Christmas at home alone because I can’t stand how verbally abusive my inlaws are. My mother-in-law admits to being mean and nasty. She

THE SUMTER ITEM

says she doesn’t care because she “hates people.” They are now pressuring my husband to move nearer to them. My life could have been so different if these relatives were nice, normal people. I’m a kind person, but I have never been good enough for them. I would never dream of saying some of the things they have said to me. They’re upper middle class and I’m “trash.” I never thought when I married my husband that his family would enjoy making me miserable. The Easter holidays are coming and I don’t know what to do. I’m afraid one day the buildup of anger will make me explode. How can I make their verbal abuse stop? “Outlaw” in Arizona DEAR “OUTLAW” — If your hus-

band is “wonderful,” why has he tolerated his parents’ treating you this way for 17 years? He should have insisted from the beginning of your marriage that you be treated with respect. I can’t believe the two of you would expose your children to this multiple times a year. You can’t “make” your inlaws stop their verbal abuse, but your husband might be able to if he locates his spine and puts his foot down. There should be no more talk of moving close to these toxic people, nor should there be any more visits to them until they either change their attitudes or learn to watch their mouths. If your husband feels he must go, then he should go alone, and you should stop making excuses for your absence.
