Special meeting set to move along penny tax process Hoping to keep Sumter County’s penny tax proposal on schedule, members of county council will hold a special meeting Monday to begin the next stage of the process before the tax is put to the public for approval in a November vote. Members of the council’s ad hoc committee on the capital sales tax project will meet at 5 p.m. Monday in the county administration building to review project proposals from the “lead groups” discussing uses for a renewed sales tax and consider naming the “stakeholders” who will put together the final project list. Committee member Charles Edens said the stakeholders’ group will EDENS have to work quickly to meet council’s self-imposed deadline for completing the proposal. “We’ve got our work cut out for us. Last time, we met every week or two weeks,” BLANDING Edens said of the 2008 process that produced the Penny for Progress proposal. “Now we’ll probably have to meet a few times a week to get it done.” Council Chairman Larry Blanding said the stakeholders will have about 30 days to pair nine separate lead group proposals down to a single list, to be submitted in March to a combined citycounty commission. “I believe they’ll have an adequate amount of time to go through it,” Blanding said. “About half the groups have already sent in their reports.” The stakeholders’ group, which the council will discuss in a closed executive

Get smart about your heart, raise money to help others BY JADE REYNOLDS jade@theitem.com February is Heart Disease Awareness Month, and several local organizations are looking to bring attention to the serious health issue. “Heart disease is an epidemic in South Carolina,” said Jennifer Wilson, public relations manager for Lexington Medical Center. “One out of every three deaths in our state is related to heart disease.” Because of this, Lexington Medical will begin a patient education series at Sumter Cardiology, starting with the lecture “When Seconds Count: ­Signs and Symptoms of a Heart Attack” on Tuesday. During the event, Dr. William D. Brearley Jr., will discuss the risk factors associated with the development of coronary artery disease, the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and the current treatment methods for heart attacks. Some local groups are also raising awareness, as well as money for charitable organizations, in entertaining ways. “There are some really unique events, one of them being Tuomey Hospital’s Heart and Sole Pageant and their Heart Party,” said Laura Power, director of development for 2014 Sumter County Heart Walk. Being held on Feb. 13, the heART pARTy features items created by local artists for sale with 10 percent of the proceeds going toward Tuomey Health Care System’s Heart Walk donations. The womanless beauty pageant will be held the same day, and the man that raises the most money is crowned the winner. “(It’s) usually pretty hysterical,” said Traci Quinn, this year’s company captain. “The pageant has been so successful the past couple of years that it was natural to repeat.” “Every school has a team, and they do many different things,” said Mary Sheridan, Heart Walk coordinator for the

Superintendent discusses direction of school district BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com With just a few months as the official superintendent for Sumter School District under his belt, Dr. Frank Baker is looking forward to moving the school district in the right direction. Along with the short-term goals previously discussed with employees during the return-to-work meeting in August, Baker said he would like to focus on a variety of long-term improvements to continue the district’s progress. District Chairman Keith Schultz said previously he was looking forward to the future of Sumter School District, and Baker was put in place to continue moving ahead after a tumultuous few years. Baker said a large part of his efforts focuses on getting the word out about the good work the faculty, staff and administrators are doing for students in Sumter School District and the potential the district has to continue to excel. Baker said that also includes addressing what could be done better to improve education in the county. On the connecting aspect of the district’s new theme, Baker explained that this involved “bringing all of the players and stakeholders to the table, reinitiating the parent involvement and input. We still had it, but we could do a better job with it.” He also explained he wanted to quickly reestablish the bond with the Greater Sum-

COUNCIL FROM PAGE A1 session, will include at least two representatives from each lead group. “We’re really going to have to narrow it down,” said Councilwoman Vivian Fleming-McGhaney. “A lot of the groups submitted some great ideas. I’m glad we had so many people interested in the process.” Blanding said FLEMINGMcGHANEY he’d like to hold a joint meeting next week between county council and all the lead groups to discuss the proposals before they head to the stakeholders’ group. Once the stakeholders and commission finish the project list, county council will have to approve the proposal in three separate readings by Aug. 15, the deadline for a new sales tax to be added to the ballot for November’s election. Until then, how the $79 million expected to be raised by the tax will be spent is still an open question. Blanding said improvements to rural roads regularly come up as a priority when the penny tax is discussed. McGhaney wants water and emergency services extended in underserved areas, and Edens said the county’s first-responder radio system needs to be upgraded. “There’s no magic number except for that $79 million total,” Edens said. “The council could say ‘we’re only going to spend $40 million.’ A project’s got to be worthwhile to get my vote.” McGhaney said final passage of the new penny tax will ultimately depend on raising community support. “We need to get the Chamber more involved,” she said. “Last time we had all these different signs and people selling it to different groups in the community. So far, I have not seen the same hype.” Reach Bristow Marchant at (803) 774-1272.

ter Chamber of Commerce and receive the support from the business community. Since being elected, a number of changes have been made and more are soon to come, Baker said. The changes included reassigning some employees at the district level to other areas BAKER where there was a greater need. “On the financial side, I felt we were a little bit top heavy at the district office level,” he said. “So those positions that were eliminated I did not refill, and that saved the district a large portion of money and any of that money I’ve saved, I’ve plowed it back into the instructional components at the school level.” This also allowed Baker to hire additional teachers to reduce the student-teacher ratio, he said. Moving forward, the district is also reviewing the curriculum and procedure used to prepare students for testing in an effort to improve test scores. Baker said a few of the schools have an F rating and he is looking to improve those ratings in the spring. Along those lines, the district is also preparing to incorporate more technology into the curriculum in the county by initiating a summer program and also focusing on strengthening students’ reading skills. Improvements to curriculum are a continuing process, Baker explained, and along with that the district

also hopes to address other long-term goals, including facilities improvements, expanding dual enrollment with Central Carolina Technical College and expanding Project Lead the Way to Lakewood and Crestwood high schools. The board voted, 4-to-3, to make Baker the official superintendent of the district in mid-November and approved his contract with a 4-to-0 vote and three abstentions in the Jan. 13 board meeting. Vice Chairman Patty Wilson previously expressed concerns with the process in which Baker was elected, and the Rev. Ralph Canty Sr. had some concerns about falling back into procedures frequently followed in the two districts before consolidation. Previously in an email, Canty said his understanding was they were attempting to create a new district by consolidating, “not more of what we had already in either of the two. Hence, to ensure this ideal, I supported then and now someone other than one of the superintendents from the previous districts.”

However, Baker said he has received support from faculty and staff, and the transition has been pretty smooth. He said he understands that board members will have different viewpoints on the way things should be done. “I’ve always felt that I will never put myself into a position to think that I should be telling a board member how to think or how to vote on an issue. My philosophy is, and this is what I practice, I give you the information. Then you have to evaluate it,” he said. “If you have questions or concerns, ask me and I’ll address them and then you as an individual board member have to vote your conviction. Once you vote your conviction, I’m going to treat you the same way I treated you before because you were elected by a constituent group of citizens and you represent them. If you feel that it is representative of the way your constituency wants to go, then you need to support it.” Reach Raytevia Evans at (803) 774-1214.

worry that the weather, including the snow as well as the rain, might interfere with plans for the race, but that’s always a worry when planning for a marathon or 5K during this time of the year. “Last year, we had freezing cold temperatures and we had rain this year,� said Peyton. “Rain or shine, runners are going to come out here because we love to run.� Runners said the cold rain made the race more difficult to run, but they were able to toughen it out in the end. “It made it interesting,� said Ryan Plexico of Chapin. “When it’s cold like this, it just hurts.� “I just felt like I was heavier,� said Season Johnson of Sumter. “I thought it would be motivation to go faster, but I’m not sure that it was.� Deputies with the Sumter County Sheriff assisted in securing the running route to prevent any motor vehicles from interfering with race. The Sumter Series consists of a total of eight races that take place throughout the year. It began last year to with the four-fold purpose of bringing more participants to smaller races, to encourage health and fitness, to draw elite runners along with friends and family to the events, and to show some positive aspects of Sumter. Registration for the Sumter Series is $100, and there is no deadline to registrar for the races. For more information, visit the Sumter Running Series facebook page.

Maintaining the shape you want is about more than weight loss

I

magine from year to year that your weight and height do not change, yet you find yourself having to buy clothes a size bigger. How can this be? While the scale shows your weight only, it neglects to show your body composition (muscle to fat ratio) which is much more important and much more informative than a 3-digit number on the scale. Too often the scale is relied on as a sole means of progress, when in actuality it does not tell you anything other than your weight, which fluctuates every day, even every hour. When you know what your body is made of and can see the inches come off and your body composition improve, regardless of any weight loss, you are more likely to stick with your healthy habits and keep working towards your goal. Barbra Deas, 40, and a Y member for more than three years, was overweight with a family history of diabetes.

“I wanted to lose weight and get healthy, I had tried several diets before but I got discouraged when I didn’t see much weight loss,� she says. But after starting the YFIT program, “I have learned not to focus on the pounds and to focus on inches and body fat.� Shortly into the program during one of her assessments, she said, “I would have given up CORRIGAN weeks ago had you not been tracking my inches and body fat. It’s true that the scale does not reflect the positive changes that are happening in your body.� Barbra shares, “When I started in September I was on blood pressure and cholesterol medications. My goal was to come off both of those.� With a history of blood clots she would remain on blood thinners for the rest of her life, but she knew that with proper nutrition and exercise

TIPS FOR SUCCESS • Monitor your inches • Don’t use the scale to measure progress • Make healthy habits a lifestyle change she could come off the other medications. After years of trying fad diets and looking for quick fixes she decided she needed a lifestyle change. During her wellness consultation it was recommended that she start the TEAM YFIT program, consisting of exercise and nutrition plans and bimonthly assessments for accountability. “Taking charge and making the decision to get serious about my health was the best thing I did for myself. I have finally learned how to eat

healthy and follow an effective exercise plan,� said Deas. Barbra has enjoyed learning how to use the weight machines properly and taking group exercise classes like core and chisel. Since September she has lost 30 pounds, more than 10 inches and more than 11 percent body fat. But most importantly, “I am off the blood pressure & cholesterol medications,� she enthusiastically states. “Having a supportive family and staff at the Y who were encouraging my success kept me motivated to reach

my goals. For me, I needed the help and guidance to be successful. If I was tempted to go off track with the eating habits, knowing that I would have an assessment kept me grounded. I have realized that this is not a diet but a lifestyle change. If I don’t continue eating healthy and exercising, I will be back on the medications.� Missy Corrigan is associate executive director of the Sumter Family YMCA.

Woman escapes fire; house ‘a total loss’

House fire destroys mobile home

Tattoo artist Steve Beasley works on the right arm of Robbie Joyner as he shows off Beasley’s work on his left arm in Summerville recently.

A woman escaped without injuries when a fire broke out in a mobile home Saturday. Firefighters found the home on 124 W. Foxworth Mill Road 75 percent engulfed in flames, according to the fire report. Three engines arrived on scene around 6:34 a.m. and spent about an hour getting the fire under control. The structure was listed as a total loss at an estimated value of $30,000. Three people reportedly lived in the home, but only one woman was home at the time of the fire. The cause could not be determined at the time.

A fire in a mobile home Friday night cost a family of three their home. Lee County firefighters responded around 10:30 p.m. to the blaze at 6730 Camden Road. No injuries were reported, but the home was listed as a total loss at an estimated value of $42,000. Capt. Brandon Holliman said the fire apparently started in the home’s living room area, but the cause remains under investigation by Sumter Fire Department officials. The Red Cross responded to the home to assist the residents, a couple and their son.

prone inside Roses & Ruin Tattoo on Charleston’s Meeting Street Road. She’d been through it before, and would gladly go under the needle again. “I love art, and I like to have it on me,” she said. It seems she is in good company in South Carolina. Since the state ended its ban on tattooing in 2004, more than 100 tattoo parlors have sprung up around the state, from Pickens to the Grand Strand and various points in between. The business has become fiercely competitive along

the way, with artists attempting ever more elaborate and creative designs to build clientele and grow their business. Some, like Gafgen, have art degrees and backgrounds in graphic design. That has raised the bar, as well as clients’ expectations. “People are more educated about tattoos, and if you don’t run a tight ship, you’re not going to last long in this industry,” said Mike Crumb, an artist at Neon Needle in Goose Creek. “If you don’t know what you are doing, you will starve.”

THE SUMTER ITEM

Wal-Mart, Amazon show changing shopping habits NEW YORK (AP) — The financial strains and shifting shopping habits of Americans have led to uneven fortunes for retailers. Traditional consumer companies such as Wal-Mart and Mattel have continued to struggle as Americans spend more cautiously in the uncertain economy. But Amazon.com has flourished as shoppers increasingly buy online rather than head to stores. The trend was evident during the pivotal holiday shopping season, a time roughly from November through December when many retailers can make up to 40 percent of their annual revenue. Overall, government figures show that spending during October through December rose at

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Barbie dolls, a Mattel product, are displayed Tuesday in a Walmart store in Robinson Township, Pa. Mattel Inc.’s quarterly results showed weak sales of Barbie and other toys. the fastest clip in three years. But exactly where — and how — Americans spent their money during the final months of the year shifted.

Fewer people were in and out of stores during the holiday season, but more were shopping online. Online shopping rose 10

percent to $46.5 billion in November and December, according to research firm Comscore. Meanwhile, sales at stores rose just 2.7 percent to $265.9 billion, according to ShopperTrak, which tracks data at 40,000 stores in the U.S. And the number of customers in stores dropped 14.6 percent. “Consumer behavior evolved quickly, as retail foot traffic fell, while online purchases grew,” said Mattel’s CEO, Bryan Stockton, in a call with investors on Friday. Mattel, the world’s largest toy maker, announced that results for the quarter that included the holiday shopping season missed both analysts’ estimates and the company’s own expectations because of weak sales of Bar-

bie and other toys. “From my perspective, the 2013 holiday period has to be one of the most transformative I have seen,” Stockton said. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. also expects disappointing results. On Friday, the world’s largest retailer said its fiscal fourth-quarter and full-year adjusted earnings from continuing operations may come in at or slightly below the low end of its prior forecasts. Chief Financial Officer Charles Holley in part blamed a bigger-than-expected impact from the federal government’s reduction in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits that went into effect on Nov. 1, which pressured its primarily low-income consumers.


ROLL CALL

THE SUMTER ITEM WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s how area members of Congress voted on major issues in the week ending Jan. 31.

HOUSE ABORTION COVERAGE IN HEALTH LAW: Voting 227 for and 188 against, the House on Jan. 28 passed a Republican bill (HR 7) that would ban subsidized insurance policies that cover abortion from the Affordable Care Act’s state and federal marketplaces. The bill would prohibit any use of federal funds, including tax credits, to subsidize premiums for such policies. Critics call this an overreach because the ACA already requires policyholders to pay the premium share that applies to reproductive services. But backers said the “separate payment� requirement is being widely disregarded. The bill also adds the socalled “Hyde Amendment,� now a rider on annual appropriations bills, to permanent U.S. law. Since 1976, the amendment has prohibited the expenditure of federal funds for abortions except in cases of rape or incest or to save the life of the mother. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate, where it is expected to die. VOTE H-1 slugged ABORTION SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Mark Sanford, R-1, Joe Wilson, R-2, Jeff Duncan, R-3, Trey Gowdy, R-4, Mick Mulvaney, R-5, Tom Rice, R-7 Voting no: James Clyburn, D-6 Not voting: None

WOMEN’S MEDICAL PRIVACY: Voting 192 for and 221 against, the House on Jan. 28 defeated a bid by Democrats to prevent HR 7 (above) from violating the medical privacy of any woman, including rape and incest victims, with respect to her choice or use of a health-insurance policy. The motion addressed privacy issues that could arise as insurance companies seek to document a woman’s claim to have been raped and thus be eligible for taxpayer-funded abortion coverage under the 1976 Hyde Amendment. That amendment bars federal funding of abortions except in cases of rape or incest or if the procedure is necessary to save the life of

the mother. A yes vote backed the Democratic motion. VOTE H-2 slugged PRIVACY SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Clyburn Voting no: Sanford, Wilson (SC), Duncan (SC), Gowdy, Mulvaney, Rice (SC) Not voting: None

FARM SUBSIDIES, FOOD STAMPS: Voting 251 for and 166 against, the House on Jan. 29 approved the conference report on a bill (HR 2642) to renew farm and food programs for five years at a projected cost of nearly $100 billion annually, down nearly $2.3 billion per year from pre-sequester levels. The bill would cut food-stamps spending by 1 percent; eliminate direct payments to farmers; expand crop insurance for growers of crops such as corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton and rice; fund rural development; boost exports; add stability to dairy incomes without directly limiting milk production; expand crop research and promote soil conservation and wetlands protection, among many other objectives. About 80 percent of the bill’s

$956 billion cost over 10 years is for food stamps and other food and nutrition programs, with the remainder allocated to farm programs. A yes vote was to approve the conference report, which awaits Senate action. VOTE H-3 slugged FARM SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Wilson (SC), Clyburn, Rice (SC) Voting no: Sanford, Duncan (SC), Gowdy, Mulvaney Not voting: None

SENATE FLOOD-INSURANCE PREMIUMS: Voting 67 for and 32 against, the Senate on Jan. 30 passed a bill (S 1926) to delay for four years steep increases in premiums for the National Flood Insurance Program, giving the Federal Emergency Management Agency time to redraw the maps of flood plains upon which risk assessments and premium levels are based. Adding $900 million to U.S. debt over five years, the bill would blunt reforms enacted by Congress in 2012 to phase out taxpayer subsidies that lower premium costs for about one in five NFIP poli-

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2014 cyholders. The program is $24 billion in debt, due largely to covering damages from hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Sandy in 2012. Serving a market shunned by private insurers, the NFIP covers 5.6 million residential and commercial properties in flood plains in 22,000 U.S. communities. A yes vote was to send the bill to the House, where it faces stiff opposition. VOTE S-1 slugged FLOOD SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Lindsey Graham, R, Tim Scott, R Voting no: None Not voting: None

TO ALLOW DEFICIT SPENDING: Voting 64 for and 35 against, the Senate on Jan. 29 reached a supermajority needed to exempt S 1926 (above) from statutory spending limits set by congressional budget resolutions. Because the bill would increase deficit spending by $900 million over its first five years and possibly by additional sums in later years, it needed this waiver to move forward. A yes vote was to allow deficit spending in the floodinsurance bill.

VOTE S-2 slugged DEFICIT SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Scott Voting no: Graham Not voting: None

PHASE-IN OF PREMIUM INCREASES: Voting 34 for and 65 against, the Senate on Jan. 30 defeated an alternative to S 1926 (above) that would allow flood-insurance premiums to rise by 25 percent per year until the property owner has begun paying an actuarially sound rate no longer subsidized by taxpayers. To put the flood-insurance program on a pay-asyou-go basis over the next several years, the amendment would impose a surcharge of $40 annually on premiums for properties valued below $500,000 and $80 annually for more costly properties. A yes vote backed the amendment. VOTE S-3 slugged PREMIUM SOUTH CAROLINA Voting yes: Scott Voting no: Graham Not voting: None Š 2014, Thomas Voting Reports Inc.

COMMENTARY

A new Sumter Item; S.C.’s road challenges

I

don’t know about you, but I sure like the look and feel of the “New” Sumter Item. Clean typography, a new nameplate, wider columns, a renewed emphasis on strong photography and especially the larger advertisements — it’s a nice package every day, and it’s only going to get better. The Sumter Item staff can be proud of the way they’ve embraced the design changes and the fresh approach to presenting your community news, and readers will continue to notice how sharp and professional every detail of the paper looks. There’s a renewed sense of relevancy throughout all the sections. The inaugural redesign week was an eventful news week, with the Continental Tire plant opening gaining national attention; our stylin’

and profilin’ governor appearing in spite of the threatening weather; a terrible wreck involving three people, including a Sumter County Sheriff’s deputy and his son; a bomb threat at Lakewood High School; the burial of a Sumter man who was hailed as a hero after saving at least three lives in a house fire; and don’t forget the ice storm. That thing was nasty, brutish and short, but miraculously the power stayed on. I would hate to have been stranded in a car somewhere around Atlanta like so many poor souls. People were spending the night in grocery stores. With all that going on in the span of just a few days, the story that really had me thinking was the one about a possible Lake Marion toll bridge. The proceeds would presumably go toward im-

proving South Carolina’s lousy roads, starting with the long black slab of potholes known as I-95. The stretch from Hardeeville to Dillon has a relatively attractive new entrance in the south and Big Pedro in the north, but what lies between is Hell’s HighGraham way. Osteen Bristow Marchant’s story in Thursday’s edition explained that it’s still a long shot legislatively, but the possibility of toll booths on both sides of the Lake Marion bridge could eventually be part of a larger road improvement plan for South Carolina. I like that idea a lot.

My entertaining uncle-inlaw runs a moving and transfer business out of Fredericksburg, Va., and he’s been traveling back and forth to Florida on I-95 for decades. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never let me forget how dramatically the roads change when you cross from North Carolina or Georgia into South Carolina. “I’m worried about ya’ll down there in South Carolina,” he bellows. “I don’t know what’s wrong with your politicians. They got to do something about those roads. They’re terrible. Just terrible.” He’s right, of course, and I constantly have to come up with ways to throw him off his roll. “Virginia’s not really even a Southern state any more, is it? It’s just a giant suburb of Washington. And what about

your new governor? Terry McAuliffe? He’s so sleazy even the Clintons won’t deal with him.” Old blue-blood Virginians can’t stand anything about D.C. politicians, so that usually works for about a minute. South Carolina’s obtuse motto: Dum Spiro Spero — “While I breath, I hope” — can definitely be applied to our road situation. Even though a more appropriate motto would probably be, “Don’t hold your breath.” But I would never tell my uncle-in-law that, simply because I don’t want to give him the upper hand in our ongoing discussions.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We Americans need to choose our leaders more wisely We, the American people, need to be more aware of the people we elect to lead our states and nation. According to the American Heritage Dictionary, a leader is one who is in charge or in command of others. Recently, Gov. Christie of New Jersey said he had no idea that one of his acolytes had intentionally caused traffic issues in Fort Lee, N.J. When the Internal Revenue Service was caught discriminating against conservative groups, e.g. the TEA Party, President Obama said he knew nothing about it. He said he read about it in the paper. After President Obama had said “you can keep your doctor and insurance plan” and that wasn’t true, he said he didn’t realize that was the case. It’s called “Obamacare,” but he doesn’t know what it says. What kind of leaders do we have? We, the American people, need to scrutinize our potential leaders more carefully. PAUL GREER Sumter

Why don’t the taxes we pay go to what they’re slated for? I noticed a recent article in The Item where a bill has been proposed by two Democrats to designate the I-95 bridge across Lake Marion as a toll bridge. I am a member of no political party, but it seems that the Democratic party is always looking for something new to tax the citizens on, and a toll bridge is a tax anyway you look at it. I live in Sumter County, S.C., and pay federal and state income taxes, county property taxes, road user fees, vehicle registration and licensing fees, and sales taxes on everything I buy. I even have to pay a “rainwater run-off fee” in Sumter County. I also pay school taxes to maintain Central Carolina and USC Sumter, neither of which I attend. I believe that, somewhere out of these fees and taxes we have to pay, the state Of South Carolina and the United States government need to cover the repair of roads and bridges, without charging us a toll to use something we have already paid for. And while I am on the subject of government waste, I was talking to a friend recently and the subject of the state Education Lottery came up. This is another misuse of state funds. Very little of the lottery income is spent on schools, most being spent on “lottery administration.” What is being spent on schools is reserved for “institutions of higher learning,” not on our children getting a good primary education. Matthew 7: 24-27 says “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” JOE E. MOORE Jr. Dalzell 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.

COMMENTARY

Daddy, Look What I’ve Done

A

few days prior to solemnly swearing that “I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States” I warned America: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” My first lady also vowed; “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” By the time I pocketed the keys to the White House, I was fit to be tied: I couldn’t wait to force my “hope and change” upon America. I was well aware that my regulations, economic policies, socialist advocacies, divisive and irresponsible leadership and double-talk would soon wreak havoc on its citizenry. Daddy, come along and see what I’ve done. Some of my admirers declared the recession ended five years ago. However, my incompetent and inadequate economic policies continue to obstruct America’s recovery. Today, five years after I launched my frolic through America, Her debt is over $17.4 trillion. By the time I abscond from the presidency, the red ink will bloat to over $20 trillion. Not bad for a community organizer, nursed on the streets of Chicago. My “shovel-ready” $1.35 billion stimulus was not as “shovel-ready, uh, as we expected,” and the 2,050 jobs created by my $2.85 billion “cash for clunkers” only cost $1.4 million each. My cuddling media never exposed these foolhardy schemes, and Americans took the bait, hook-line-and-sinker. I snickered all the way through Oprah’s interview. My “investments in green jobs” funnels billions to my buddies, and thousands of Obama groupies were accommodated with my single-handed “saving of the auto industry.” Daddy, you and your so-

cialist activist taught me well. I’m the “food-stamp president” and proud of it. For the first time in history, working-age people make up the majority of households relying on food-stamps. In my America, it’s hunky-dory that 40 million folks depend on food stamps, and the yearly cost is a mere $85 billion. Each day and hour of my supremacy, their escape path to self-sufficiency narrows. I’m at the top of my game when it comes to increasing the number of Americans living in poverty: 47 million, the highest number in decades. Even your highness is astounded by manipulated unemployment numbers. Nearly 90 million Americans are no longer counted in the workforce, and only 63 percent of workSteve ing-age AmeriBarwick cans seek employment. Mix all of this in the pot, and the straightforward unemployment rate is somewhere way north of 11 percent. How you liking that “hopeand-change” Daddy-0? I’m second to none when it comes to tactical trickery, and hiring Hillary as Madam Secretary of State was one of my best. Once she came aboard, old Billy boy had to follow. Speaking of Madam Hillary, how about my leadership during Benghazi? Quite a dance-around, huh Daddy? Same with Operation Fast and Furious; but unlike Benghazi, Fast and Furious failures couldn’t be blamed on a video. So I shamelessly obstructed this investigation by invoking the first executive privilege of my reign. I detest that “I am constrained, by a system that our Founders put

in place.” However, “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.” And my socialist agenda will go forward “with or without Congress.” For mine is an imperial regime, and no American shall escape my collectivist agenda. If you’re in America illegally, not to worry; keep sucking on the fruits of our garden and stay as long as you wish. If you’re a fellow “chum” buddy, continue smoking your dope without worry that you inhale. I’ll bestow upon you a wink and a nod; after all, do as I say and do as I did. And if you are one of us, don’t fret, I’ll not dispatch my government agencies to spy on you or intimidate, threaten, or bully; after all, I only “punish our enemies.” And now for my proudest and greatest achievement from whence my legacy shall spring, Obamacare. With a gargantuan onslaught of dishonesty, lying and devious scheming to and against all Americans, I succeeded in unscrupulously traumatizing and dismembering one of the best healthcare delivery systems in the world. Because of my signature legislation, and despite my continued promise that they could “keep their doctor” millions of Americans are living in healthcare fear and medical-care uncertainty. With contemptuous mockery, I flout constitutional separation of powers and disregard sections of the “law-of-the-land”, or any law, that prove to be politically inconvenient. The authors of the presidential oath must have known I was coming. My pledge was to protect, preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States “to the best of my ability.” I have kept my pledge. Daddy, oh Daddy, just look at what I’ve done!

OBITUARIES

THE SUMTER ITEM

SAMUEL W. KEMMERLIN Samuel W. Kemmerlin, 86, husband of Blanche Holloman Kemmerlin, died Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at NHC Healthcare. Born in Cameron, he was a son of the late Lewis A. Kemmerlin and Ruby Thompson Kemmerlin. Mr. Kemmerlin was a member of Northside Memorial Baptist Church and the Woodmen of the World. He retired from Geor- KEMMERLIN gia-Pacific after 31 years of service. He enjoyed woodworking and working in his yard. Survivors include his wife of Sumter; two daughters, Barbara Kemmerlin Hill (David) and Sandra Kemmerlin Dannelly (Tim), all of Sumter; three grandchildren, Tiffany Reaves (Ryan), D.J. Hill, and Ashley Dannelly; four great-grandchildren, Austin, Kodie, Lakin, and Morgan Reaves; and two sisters, Carrie McAlhaney of Jamison and Ruby Dannelly of Cope. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at Northside Memorial Baptist Church with the Rev. Jimmy Holley and the Rev. Jim Johnson officiating. Burial will be in the Evergreen Memorial Park cemetery. The family will receive friends from 4 to 6 p.m. today at Elmore-Cannon-Stephens Funeral Home and other times at the home of his daughter, 385 E. Emerald Lake Drive. Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, Palmetto Chapter, 4124 Clemson Blvd., Suite L, Anderson,

DESERTER FROM PAGE A1 officially labeled him a deserter when he was seen on security footage at a business in Waco, Ga. A news release at the time said Williams had been connected to several hotel and motel rooms throughout South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee while he eluded investigators. Maj. David Faggard, director of public affairs for Air Force Central Command at Shaw, said Williams could be returned to Shaw as early as this weekend, but Linda Card with Air Force Office of Special Investigations said as of Friday night Williams had yet to be turned over to Air Force custody and was likely still being held in the local jail in Dothan. Faggard said Williams’ return was probably delayed by the snowstorm that shut down highways across the South this week. While it’s unclear what kind of charges Williams will now face, Faggard said he will have to answer questions about his absence once he gets back to the air base. “Obviously, he’ll have to discuss with his lawyers what the steps are,� Faggard said.

SC 29261 or to Northside Memorial Baptist Church, 1004 N. Main St., Sumter, SC 29153. The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of NHC Healthcare for their care and compassion. Elmore-Cannon-Stephens Funeral Home and Crematorium of Sumter is in charge of the arrangements.

DANIEL L. BONNETTE Daniel Lee Bonnette, 61, husband of Rhonda Amerson Bonnette, died Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at MUSC in Charleston. Born in Sumter, he was a son of the late Elliott Bonnette, Pauline Baker Elmore and Theo E. “Buster� Elmore Sr. He was employed by Apex Tool Group for 37 years. He was a graduate of Edmunds High School and a 1975 graduate of Clemson University where he was a member of the Iota Lambda Sigma Honors Fraternity. He was an avid Clemson Tigers fan and loved golf. He had an infectious laugh and was full of life. He adored and loved his family, which includes his wife of 39 years; two sons, Eric Lee Bonnette and wife, Kim, of Simpsonville, and Adam Wayne Bonnette and wife, Lil, of Columbia; and two grandchildren. He was a devoted grandfather, also known as Ghee to Walker Lee Bonnette, with whom he shared a special bond, and Sarah Grace Bonnette. He was joyfully anticipating the birth of his twin granddaughters in May. He is also survived by a brother, Elliott “Gene� Bonnette and wife, Cindy, of Columbia; a sister, Paula B. Richardson and husband,

Card said the captain’s vanishing act, alone, guarantees he will face disciplinary action under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. “He’s going to face desertion charges,� she said. “Whether he faces any other charges will have to be determined.� The 30-year-old airman’s disappearance concerned Card’s office partly because Williams held a security clearance allowing him to handle communications between AFCENT headquarters at Shaw and air forces deployed to the Middle East. One of the Quantico, Va.,-based OSI’s responsibilities is enforcing counter-espionage efforts within the Air Force. But Faggard said Williams likely couldn’t have leaked any sensitive information during his disappearance. “They looked into that in the first few days (after he went missing) just to make sure,� he said. “The Air Force compartmentalizes a lot of information, so he only had access to certain information.� Previous releases from the Air Force and law enforcement suggested Williams was being tracked via his credit card activity, and a report in the Air Force Times credits a Marshal with spotting the captain’s vehicle in the Alabama town

SUPER BOWL XLVIII

Super offense vs. super defense

Seattle faces Denver today in Super Bowl XLVIII at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Players who could have an impact on the game are, left to right, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, Denver cornerback Champ Bailey and Denver quarterback Peyton Manning.

Broncos, Seahawks square off today for Super Bowl XLVIII crown BY BARRY WILNER The Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Record-setting offense versus relentlessly stingy defense. Coaches who actually smile, are quotable and think football should be fun. A wintry outdoor setting. And the two best teams in the NFL. Sunday’s Super Bowl has just about everything a fan, a player, a coach — and certainly a league — could ask for. “It’s very special to be here,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “Look at this event that our players are having to take part of. The game, the

matchup, the culmination of the season, all of this is just extraordinary.” Carroll is correct about the special nature of this Super Bowl. It could have a profound effect on the immediate future of pro football, too. Whether it becomes a referendum on hosting the big game in the elements in a cold-weather city is unknown. But more possible is it having a strong bearing on the future of the quarterback position in a sport that has become ever more dependent on the passer. In other words, we have the classic pocket passer emblematic of the old guard — that would be Peyton Man-

ning, of course, and no quarterback has ever had a more prolific season. And we have the quick-footed, quick-witted scrambler in Russell Wilson representing for the millennials such as Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton, even Andrew

Luck. Seattle’s miserly defense wants to force Manning into uncomfortable territory, which basically means anywhere outside the passing pocket. Denver’s D will be intent on giving Wilson a taste of claustrophobia by keeping him hemmed in the pocket. Obviously, both QB approaches work for their offenses, or else these two teams wouldn’t each be 15-3, top seeds in their conferences and facing off for the championship. The quarterback differences — aside from age, time of service in the pros, or even

Sumter teams sweep WF

Hopkins making most of increased playing time at College of Charleston

BY JUSTIN DRIGGERS jdriggers@theitem.com

The icy, snowy weather of the past week kept the Sumter High School varsity girls basketball team from taking the court until Saturday. It did, however, allow the Lady Gamecocks to work on their transition game in time for a matchup against West Florence – with the Region VI-4A lead on the line. “We felt like we had a little bit more speed and little deeper bench,” SHS head coach Chris Vandevander said. “So all week long we worked on

pushing the ball.” The result was a momentum-swinging second quarter that saw Sumter build a double-digit lead it did not relinquish in a 46-35 victory at the SHS gymnasium. The Sumter boys also turned a big second quarter into a big win as the Gamecocks soundly handled the Knights 71-43. With the victory, the Lady Gamecocks improved to 12-5 overall and 4-0 in the region – gaining a full game on West, which fell to 15-4 overall and 3-1.

STATE ROUNDUP

Strickland’s career night lifts Charleston Southern to 80-66 victory over Liberty CHARLESTON — Sheldon Strickland hit seven 3-pointers and scored a career-high 35 points to lead Charleston Southern over Liberty 80-66 Saturday. Strickland made seven of his nine shots in the first half, including five 3-pointers in a row, as Charleston Southern led 45-27 at the half and never trailed. Strickland was 13 of 18 STRICKLAND from the field, and 7 of 11 from beyond the arc. He has hit a career-best eight 3-pointers three times, his last was against Coastal Carolina on January 18. Will Saunders scored 14 points and Arlon Harper added 11 for Charleston Southern (10-11, 4-4 Big South). The Buccaneers had their largest lead, 63-39 with 12:25 to play before Liberty closed on a 27-17 run. Andrew Smith scored 15 points and grabbed a careerhigh 13 rebounds to lead Liberty (9-14, 3-5), which has lost four of its last five games. Davon Marshall also scored 15 points for the Flames. Davidson 62 The Citadel 43

DAVIDSON, N.C.— De’Mon Brooks scored 23 points and gathered eight rebounds as Davidson ran away from The Citadel in the second half in a 62-43 win on Saturday. Both teams struggled to muster much offense in the first half, with Davidson (1211, 8-1 Southern) scoring seven points inside 2 minutes left until halftime just to get the score to 24-20 at the break. Davidson picked up the pace after the intermission. With the score tied at 31 with 13:44 left, the Wildcats used runs of 8-2 and 13-0 — hitting 6 of 8 3-point attempts along the way — to put away the Bulldogs (4-20, 0-9). High Point 65 Winthrop 64

HIGH POINT, N.C. — Adam Weary’s jump shot from inside

the key with 8 seconds left lifted High Point to a 65-64 victory over Winthrop on Saturday. With the game tied at 63, the Eagles’ Keon Johnson was fouled. He made 1 of 2 free throws with 25 seconds left. After Weary’s basket, which gave High Point its first lead, Johnson missed a contested shot on a drive to the basket. High Point (9-12, 5-3) collected its fifth win in its last six games and remained tied atop the Big South’s North Division with VMI and Campbell. Winthrop (10-10, 4-4), in losing its second straight game, fell two games off the pace in the South Division. Wofford 77 Samford 58

SPARTANBURG — Spencer Collins scored 16 points as Wofford took advantage of Samford’s offensive struggles and won its fourth straight game, cruising to a 77-58 win on Saturday. Wofford (11-10, 6-3 Southern Conference) mounted a 26-5 lead more than midway through the first half as Samford made just a single field goal in the game’s first 11½ minutes. The Terriers led 43-22 at halftime and by as many as 33 in the second half. Karl Cochran added 14 points for the Terriers and Jaylen Allen had 12 as Wofford shot 51.6 percent from the field. Lee Skinner had 10 rebounds for the Terriers, who out-rebounded Samford 42-30. Raijon Kelly had 16 points for Samford (9-14, 3-5), which didn’t surpass the 40-point mark until 5:13 remaining in the game and made just 3 of 12 shots from 3-point range.

ACC ROUNDUP

Syracuse holds off Duke in OT SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Jerami Grant scored eight points in overtime to finish with a career-high 24 and Jim Boeheim’s No. 2 Syracuse stayed unbeaten, topping Mike Krzyzewski’s No. 17 Duke 91-89 on Saturday in a matchup of the two winningest coaches in Division I history. C.J. Fair scored a career-best 28 as Syracuse (21-0, 8-0 ACC) set a school record for consecutive wins to start a season. Playing in front of a charged-up crowd of 35,46, the largest ever at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse remained one of three undefeated teams in the nation, along with No. 1 Arizona and No. 4 Wichita State. Duke’s Rasheed Sulaimon beat the buzzer in regulation with an off-balance 3-pointer that tied it at 78. The Blue Devils led 87-84 with 80 seconds left in overtime before Syracuse rallied. Jabari Parker had 15 points and nine rebounds before fouling out in regulation for Duke (17-5, 6-3). Notre Dame 76 Boston College 73

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Eric Atkins hit a 3-pointer with 1 second left in overtime after missing a potential game-winning free throw in regulation to give Notre Dame a 76-73 victory over Boston College on Saturday, ending a three-game losing streak for the Irish. The Eagles led most of the way and Ryan Anderson scored four straight points for Boston College to tie the score at 73 with 35 seconds left, but Atkins took the inbounds pass and drove the ball up the court and hit the game-winner to finish with 24 points. The Irish (12-10, 3-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) won for just the second time in their last eight games. Boston College (6-15, 2-6) fell to 1-7 on the road. Maryland 80 Virginia Tech 60

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Maryland guard Dez Wells scored 19 points to lead the Terrapins to an 80-60 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday. Wells came off the bench as punishment for being late to a team breakfast. It marked just the second time since he enrolled at Maryland in 2012 that he did not start. He entered the game in the first minute of play and went on to make 6 of 9 from the floor. Maryland (13-9, 5-4 ACC) shot 51.8 percent (29 of 56), won its second in a row and beat the Hokies for the fourth-straight time.

Miami 64 Norfolk State 49

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Miami finally enjoyed its first home win of the year and snapped a three-game losing streak. Rion Brown scored 15 points as the Hurricanes defeated Norfolk State 64-49 on Saturday. The win was Miami’s first since a 56-42 Atlantic Coast Conference victory at Georgia Tech on Jan. 18. The Hurricanes also had not won at home since their 71-48 victory over Loyola (Md.) on Dec. 30. Manu Lecomte scored 13 points and Garrius Adams finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Hurricanes (11-10). Donnavan Kirk was Miami’s fourth player to finish in double-figure scoring with 10 points. From wire reports

UF pummels Texas A&M GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Patric Young has a message for anyone who believes Florida’s success this season has to do with playing in a two-team Southeastern Conference. Michael Frazier II scored 21 points, Dorian Finney-Smith added 11 and the third-ranked Gators overwhelmed Texas A&M 69-36 on Saturday. Florida (19-2, 8-0) pushed its winning streak to 13 games and extended a school record for consecutive home wins to 27. It’s the third time in program history the Gators have started 19-2, with the last two (2005-06, 2006-07) ending in national championships. (11) Kentucky 84 Missouri 79

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Aaron Harrison scored 21 points and James Young added 20 to help No. 11 Kentucky beat Missouri 84-79 on Saturday. The Wildcats (16-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) kept their poise one game after calling a player-only meeting to discuss the team’s issues away from home. Andrew Harrison’s 3-pointer just 1:42 into the matchup gave the team a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Jabari Brown finished with a career-high 33 points and Jordan Clarkson scored 28 to

keep Missouri (16-5, 4-4) in the game. Clarkson’s layup with 51.9 seconds remaining narrowed the Tigers’ deficit to 80-77, but Aaron Harrison answered with a layup 30 seconds later to end the threat. Auburn 74 Georgia 67

AUBURN, Ala. — Chris Denson scored 18 points and Auburn made six straight free throws over the final 34 seconds in a 74-67 victory over Georgia on Saturday. The Tigers (10-9, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) went 11 of 13 from the foul line to secure their second straight SEC win after dropping 16 in a row. Louisana State 88 Arkansas 74

TALLAHASEE, Fla. — Birmingham, Ala. native K.J. McDaniels had his mom, grandmother, brother, sister, aunt and a handful of cousins travel to Florida State to see him and Clemson face the Seminoles on Saturday. That, in addition to a five-game losing streak to Florida State, provided all the motivation the Atlantic Coast Conferences’ 10th leading scorer needed. McDaniels put up 26 points as Clemson defeated Florida State 53-49 on the road in ACC MCDANIELS action. He was one point shy of a career high as McDaniels’ family drowned out most of the Florida State crowd throughout the second half. “Florida State, they’re a great defensive

team, they’re a long team,” McDaniels said. “I just had to find those open spots to get to and try to wedge my way through there. “My shoot-around this morning was great. I felt like I had the right energy and I had so much confidence. I’ve always had good games in here. I like Florida State. I like their court. Just going out there being aggressive and playing as hard as I can for my team.” The Tigers (14-6, 5-3) survived a slowmoving defensive battle in which both teams failed to shoot 40 percent from the floor most of the game. The Seminoles led 20-17 at halftime, but an 11-2 run midway through the second half gave Clemson a 40-32 lead that it never gave up. Jeron Blossomgame scored 10 points and Jordan Roper added eight for the Tigers. McDaniels’ three 3-pointers tied the secondmost he’s hit all season.

SOUTH CAROLINA BASKETBALL

Gamecocks let second SEC victory slip away in 75-71 loss BY DAVID BRANDT The Associated Press OXFORD, Miss.— For about seven minutes, Mississippi played its best basketball of the season. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Minutes away from a crushing defeat, Ole Miss rallied for one of its biggest wins of the season, beating South Carolina 75-71 on Saturday after erasing a 15-point deficit in the second half. “That was big-time basketball,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “You’re down 15 against a team that’s playing well and you’re on your heels. Then you make everything happen. You make it happen defensively, you make timely shots, you execute, you come up with loose balls, you make free throws. That was a tremendous effort.” Jarvis Summers was the catalyst in the comeback, making several clutch plays in the final minutes. He hit a 3-pointer with just under 4 minutes remaining that gave the Rebels a 67-66 lead — their first of the second half. Then the 6-foot-3 guard hit an 18-foot jumper and a layup to keep the Rebels ahead in the tense final minutes. He also tipped away in the loose ball as the clock wound down, allowing Ole Miss to keep possession and hang on for the victory. He finished 6 of 11 from the field and had eight assists. “He’s so clutch,” Ole Miss forward LaDarius White said. “He’s always been

White scored 12 and Aaron Jones added 11. The Rebels (15-6, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) shot 44.1 percent (26 of 59) from the field. South Carolina pushed ahead 61-46 with 10:53 remaining, but that’s when Ole Miss started its methodical comeback. South Carolina’s Brenton Williams scored 23 points and Sindarius Thornwell added 18.

Former Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks, Oakland punter Ray Guy and Seattle offensive tackle Walter Jones, left to right, were among seven new members named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. The other four are New York Giant defensive end Michael Strahan, Arizona cornerback Aeneas Williams, Atlanta defensive end Claude Humphrey and Buffalo wide receiver Andre Reed.

Guy, Brooks, Jones among 7 elected to Pro Hall of Fame BY TOM CANAVAN The Associated Press NEW YORK — The hang time is over for Ray Guy. The longtime punter for the Oakland Raiders is all by himself once again. After waiting 23 years, Guy is the first punter elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “Good things are worth waiting for,” Guy said Saturday night after being elected along with six other players. “It’s just a matter of time when it will show up. And I knew it would, sooner or later. It had to, whether it was me or somebody down the road. But sooner or later, it had to show up, because that is a part of a football game.” The class of 2014 also included defensive end Michael Strahan, receiver Andre Reed, defensive back Aeneas Williams and defensive end Claude Humphrey, who like Guy was a senior selection. Two first-time eligible players, linebacker Derrick Brooks and offensive tackle Walter Jones, were selected. The announcement was made at the NFL Honors award show, less than 24 hours before the Denver Broncos meet the Seattle Seahawks in the first Super Bowl in a non-domed stadium in a coldweather city. Among the finalists who didn’t get in were two with ties to the Indianapolis Colts and current Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning — coach Tony Dungy and receiver Marvin Harrison. Each of the incoming Hall of Famers walked to the stage and was announced individually. Strahan, who helped the Giants make two Super Bowls, got a huge cheer from the home crowd. Induction will be on Aug. 1 in Canton, Ohio. Guy turned the punting job into a defensive weapon after he became the first player at his position to

be selected in the first round of the draft in 1973. He made “hang time” part of the football vernacular while playing all of his 207 games in 14 seasons with the Raiders. The Southern Mississippi product averaged 42.4 yards, falling under the 40-yard bar only during the strike-shortened 1982 season. Only three of his 1,049 punts were blocked, and he set an NFL record with 619 in a row without a block. He had 209 punts downed inside the 20-yard line, including 77 in his final three seasons. “It’s gratifying to now see a punter go into the Hall of Fame,” Guy said. “Whether it was me or somebody else, they needed representation in that position.” Brooks was the cornerstone of a Bucs defense that led the league in 2002 and ‘05, and the NFC five times. He was The Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year when Tampa Bay won its only Super Bowl after the 2002 season. The linebacker never missed a game in his 14 seasons and averaged a remarkable 146 tackles. Six of his 25 interceptions were returned for touchdowns, including a league-record three in ‘02. He holds Tampa Bay records for tackles in a game (23), defensive TDs in a season (four), career starts and games, and tackles (2,196). Seattle certainly got a winner when it moved up to the No. 6 spot in the 1997 draft to take Jones. He immediately provided blindside protection for Warren Moon and quickly became the first Seahawks lineman to earn a Pro Bowl spot. He was one of the chief road graders who helped Shaun Alexander rush for 266 yards in a 2001 game — the fourth-highest total in NFL history — and then rush for a team-record 1,880 yards and 28 TDs in his MVP season in 2005. Strahan set the NFL record for sacks in a single season, getting 22½ in 2001. The one most people re-

Clarendon County was selected to host this exhibit to display how sports shaped small-town communities thanks to a grant provided through the Museum on Main Street programs. The exhibit, which will be free to the public, will be displayed at Weldon Auditorium from Oct. 31 through Dec. 13 of 2015. “We’d like to put together a video of the history of sports in this county, and we also want to focus on the number of people who have gone on to play professional sports,” Hometown Heroes Project Director Sylvia Clark said. “One of the people featured in the Smithsonian exhibit is Clarendon County native (and women’s professional tennis great) Althea Gibson, and while we’re glad to have her we’d like to include every sport, including fishing.” Local exhibits highlighting Clarendon County sports teams and individuals will be featured at the museum and other sites in the county leading up to next year.

Several Clarendon County annuals and Sports Hall of Fame booklets are displayed at Weldon Auditorium. The public is encouraged to contribute to the sports exhibit and tell how athletics changed and shaped the county. Historical Society committee member G.G. Cutter said. “When you say Smithsonian you know it’s a big deal, and this gives us an opportunity to get everybody together and celebrate those heroes and teams that have been a part of our lives.” Manning Mayor Julia Nelson joked how she wasn’t very good at sports and was always the last to be picked for a team. Still, she recognizes the importance of sports in the history of Clarendon County. “Sometimes teams would rather play with an odd number than have me play, but it’s so good to know that we have so many people that are good in sports in Clarendon County, going back as far as Althea Gibson, and I’m sure further than that,” Nelson said. “I’m a lover of history and I think this is going to help

member is the record-setter in the final game of the regular season, when Green Bay’s Brett Favre seemed to lay down on a play late in the game. While there is controversy about that play, the gap-toothed Strahan was one of the top two-way defensive ends. Younger teammates said he taught them how to work to become NFL players, and he walked away from the NFL after winning the Super Bowl in February 2008. “It’s hard to find guys with everything, but this guy had everything . size, speed, power, toughness, endurance, motor, smarts, leadership, heart, love for the game, but what I admired most about Michael was his pride,” Giants general Jerry Reese said. “No matter what the circumstances were, when he walked out on that field on Sunday, he was going to give it ALL to you. There aren’t many guys who can say that.” Reed came out of little Kutztown (Pa.) University and played his first 15 seasons with Buffalo, getting to four Super Bowls, but never winning one. His final season was with Washington. His 951 career receptions are third in league history, highlighted by nine consecutive seasons of 50-plus catches. Long before people spoke about yards after the catch, Reed was doing it. He finished with 13,198 yards and 87 touchdowns. A walk-on at Southern University, Williams was a shutdown cornerback in his 14 NFL seasons, the first 10 with the Cardinals and the last four with the Rams. He had 55 career interceptions, getting at least one in every season except his last. He had five or more in picks in six seasons, with nine being his best in 1994. Williams shared the NFL record for longest fumble return with a 104-yarder for a touchdown against Washington in 2000, his last year with the Cardinals. He started at cornerback for the Rams in the 2001 Super Bowl and played safety in his final two seasons.

SUPER BOWL XLVIII FROM PAGE B1 their height (Manning at 6-foot-5 is about 6 inches taller than Wilson) — make this Super Bowl even more intriguing. It’s all in the styles. “They both have different styles,” Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase said in perhaps the biggest understatement during a week of hyperbole. “But mentally it sounds like Russell’s kind of heading in that direction of what Peyton’s done with his career as far as being a very intelligent quarterback and using the tools of his game to his advantage.” But they are entirely different tools, and the question becomes which set of tools will fit the NFL best if it continues to evolve into a light-up-thescoreboard game? There will always be a place in anyone’s starting lineup for a Peyton Manning, who is in the conversation for greatest quarterback in history regardless of whether he adds a second Super Bowl ring on Sunday. Teams will simply construct their offense around a talent like that. Whether most teams will stick with convention or choose the route the colleges — the NFL’s farm system — have gone, building around mobile, creative and elusive passers such as Wilson, won’t be decided by who wins at the Meadowlands. But it could play a significant role in a copycat league. The evaluation systems won’t change no matter what species of quarterback is prevalent in the pros. “As a talent evaluator for college and even free agency, the toughest thing to evaluate is process,” Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp said. “Can the guy process in the pocket during the heat of battle?” Everyone knows Manning has had that skill throughout his career, and Wilson has

provided strong evidence in his two NFL seasons that he’s got it, too. “Peyton might be one of the best I’ve ever been around that can process, ‘Ok, I’ve got these tools to use, and in 10 seconds I’ve got to make a decision, and execute in less than four,’” Knapp added. Wilson’s multi-faceted abilities on the field might differ in method to Manning’s, but Carroll sees many similarities off the field. “He’s an incredible competitor in every way,” Carroll said of his quarterback, who at 25 is 12 years younger than Manning. “In preparation, in game day, he’s the epitome of what you want in your competitor. He’s got tremendous work habits. He’s got extraordinary athleticism. He’s got a general all-around savvy that allows him to make great decisions under pressure. “He’s extremely confident, too, so no matter what is going on, he’s not going to waver in his focus and ability to handle things.” Manning believes elements of all styles will always be in demand. “I think I could describe the perfect quarterback. Take a little piece of everybody,” he said. “Take John Elway’s arm, Dan Marino’s release, maybe Troy Aikman’s dropback, Brett Favre’s scrambling ability, Joe Montana’s two-minute poise and, naturally, my speed.” After the laughter stopped, Manning continued: “I could take a piece of everyone, of some of my favorite quarterbacks, and I could take 30 traits from different guys, and put them in that perfect quarterback.” But will that perfect QB in years to come feature more of Manning and his mold or of Wilson and his ilk? Sunday’s game could provide a glimpse into that future.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman is one of the cogs to the Seahawks’ NFL best defense that will go up against the Denver Broncos today in Super Bowl XLVIII.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Denver wide receiver Wes Welker, right, said he doesn’t think about how dropping a pass could’ve sealed a Super Bowl victory for the New England Patriots against the New York Giants two years ago. Welker will go for some redemption today when the Broncos face Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Welker doesn’t dwell on Super costly drop BY ARNIE STAPLETON The Associated Press JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Wes Welker swears he doesn’t dwell on his costly drop in the Super Bowl two years ago that could have sealed New England’s win over the New York Giants and made up for losing to them four years earlier. “You know what? I don’t even think about it,” Welker said as he prepared for his third Super Bowl, his first with the Denver Broncos. “The past is the past, what happened, happened, and I’m just looking forward to this one and going out there and playing my best game and doing what I can to help my team win.” Welker said getting to the big game and coming up short two times is what drives him. “I think it’s the reason I get up in the morning in the offseason and even now,” he said after helping the Broncos beat his old team for the AFC title, securing a showdown with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. Welker tied a Super Bowl record with 11 receptions for 103 yards six years ago but the Patriots’ perfect season ended when Eli Manning threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds left to give the Giants a 17-14 win. The teams met again four years later in Indianapolis and Welker caught seven passes for 60 yards and ran twice for 21 more, but it was the catch he didn’t make that haunts Patriots fans to this day. The Patriots led 17-15 with four minutes left and were on the Giants’ 44 when Tom Brady found Welker wide open 23 yards downfield. The pass, however, was high and slightly behind Welker, who got both hands on the ball but couldn’t make the catch.

The Giants got the ball back and drove for the winning touchdown. “Sure, I mean it motivates you during the offseason. It motivates you when you’re working out, it motivates you through the year,” Welker said. “Just that feeling of losing that game, I mean it’s heartbreaking. It takes a few weeks just to get over it. It definitely sticks with you and motivates you for the future and definitely blessed to have this opportunity again.” Welker joined Peyton Manning in Denver in the offseason after six seasons with Brady and was Denver’s leading receiver until missing the final 3½ games after sustaining his second concussion in a three-week span. He still ended up with 778 yards on 73 catches and a career-high 10 touchdowns. Wearing a bigger helmet to protect against further head injury, he’s caught 10 passes for 76 yards and a TD in the playoffs. He had four catches for 38 yards against New England in the AFC Championship and his hard hit took out Patriots top cornerback Aqib Talib on a pick play at the line of scrimmage. The next day, Patriots coach Bill Belichick suggested Welker deliberately tried to hurt Talib and complained to the league about it. The NFL said no infraction had occurred. Welker’s teammates said Belichick was just using Welker as a smoke screen and a scapegoat to hide deficiencies in his team’s defense and the fact that Welker’s replacement in New England, Danny Amendola, dropped the only pass thrown to him in the title game. Welker stayed above the fray, saying he was just happy to be back in the Super Bowl. “I’m very blessed to have this opportunity again and that’s all you really ask for,” he said. “It’s all you work for during the offseason is to get to this point and now you just want to finish it.”

BY RACHEL COHEN The Associated Press JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Peyton Manning counts $17.5 million against the Denver Broncos’ salary cap this season. For less than double that, the Seahawks pay for their entire starting defense. With some expert drafting and a few selective forays into free agency, Seattle built a dominant unit that’s also inexpensive, with the starting 11 costing under $34 million. It’s a young defense, too, and that’s a major reason it’s so affordable. Of the 18 players who have started at least one game this season, six were drafted by the Seahawks in 2011 or later, which means they’re still on their very reasonable rookie contracts. Where Seattle has spent money is on the defensive line, because depth there is a major priority. Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett were signed as free agents during the offseason for an $8.5 million tab; neither is expected to start in Sunday’s Super Bowl, but both are key parts of the rotation. “The nice part about working here is we have a real style about how we want to play,” defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. “They know how to bring the players in.” After coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider were hired in early 2010, one of their first big moves was to trade for Chris Clemons. They wanted him for the “LEO” defensive end position in their hybrid 4-3 defensive scheme, the weakside rusher who sometimes plays with his hand off the ground. Their style has allowed the Seahawks to find great value with players who might not fit into many other teams’ systems. Length and speed are attributes Quinn covets at all positions, confident the coaching staff can develop guys with raw skills into productive starters. Never was this truer than the 2011 draft. The Seahawks had seven picks in the final three rounds and used all but one on defensive players. “Overall, I think we were able to really improve the athleticism and speed of our team and then we were able to do some things up front from a strength and toughness standpoint,” Schneider said that day. He would prove to be right. Seattle got its two current starting cornerbacks in the fifth (Richard Sherman) and sixth (Byron Maxwell) rounds. The Seahawks also added two linebackers who have started this season: K.J. Wright in the fourth and Malcolm Smith in the seventh. For all the late-round success, Seattle also hasn’t whiffed when taking defensive players at the start of the draft. The Seahawks’ two defensive first-round picks in the last five years are both starters: linebacker Bruce Irvin (2012) and safety Earl Thomas (2010). But what’s been crucial, Quinn said, is a franchise philosophy to give players an equal chance no matter how much they’re paid. “Let’s not worry about where they were drafted or how they got here,” he said. “How far can we take them?”

Watson leads Phoenix Open SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — A desert critter saved leader Bubba Watson at least a stroke Saturday in the Phoenix Open. Some pigskin play cost Phil Mickelson to the chagrin of the rowdiest fans in the largest crowd in golf history. The estimated 189,722 in attendance had a lot to see on a sunny, cool day at TPC Scottsdale. Watson’s drive on the par-5 13th went into a desert bush and settled next to a burrowing animal hole that would have interfered with his swing, giving him a free drop. He hit a 150yard shot to the fairway, followed with WATSON a wedge to the fringe and twoputted for par on the way to a 3-under 68 and a twostroke lead. PACERS 97 NETS 96

INDIANAPOLIS — Paul George and Roy Hibbert both had 20 points, and the Indiana Pacers overcame an early deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 97-96 Saturday night. Lance Stephenson, left out of the All-Star game despite leading the NBA in triple-doubles, added 14 points for the Pacers (3610), who improved the league’s best home record to 22-2.

NEW YORK — Peyton Manning’s record-setting season earned him his fifth Associated Press NFL MVP award Saturday night in a landslide. No other player has won more than three. Manning also took the AP’s Offensive Player of the Year award for the second time. Carolina grabbed two major awards, with Ron Rivera winning AP NFL Coach of the Year and linebacker Luke Kuechly voted top defensive player. Rivera engineered the Panthers’ turnaround from a 7-9 record to 12-4, the NFC South title and a firstround playoff bye. Kuechly keyed a defense that allowed 241 points, less than every team except NFC champion Seattle. Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy and Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson were the top rookies for 2013. San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers took the Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors show. Rivera’s fine work in his third season in charge in Carolina brought him 21½ votes. That outdistanced Kansas City’s Andy Reid, who got 13½ votes. In his first year with the Chiefs, Reid took them from 2-14 to 11-5 and an AFC wild-card berth. From wire reports

SUMTER FROM PAGE B1 “We knew it was going to be a very competitive game,” Vandevander said. “I thought we did a good job of just playing within ourselves and everybody doing their jobs. “We executed in transition well – especially during the second quarter.” After a sluggish start for both teams, the Lady Knights led 11-6 after the first quarter. But Sumter started getting behind the WF defense, led by Kadejuha Kennedy. Kennedy led a quartet of scorers with six points as she combined with Jessica Harris, N’Dea Kennedy and Cydanisha Cooper on a 20-5 charge that put SHS up 26-16 at the half. “We were up 14-13 and they went on a 10-0 run and it was all transition,” West Florence head coach Kevin Allen said. “We only had one person back the whole time. They ran their offense pretty well the first part of (the quarter), but after that it was all get out and get a layup.” The balanced scoring continued for the Lady Gamecocks in the third. Shiniyah Brown, Kadejuha Kennedy and Cooper each scored four points as the advantage increased to 38-22. Cooper wound up leading SHS with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds. “She stepped up for us and played really big in the paint,” Vandevander said of Cooper. “I thought team-wise we all did a good job of playing like we were capable of, so it’s nice to see us moving in that direction.” Free throws kept West in the game in the fourth as the Lady Knights made eight of 10 shots from the charity stripe, but

couldn’t cut the lead to any less than 11. Destinee Walker led WF with 20 points the only player in double figures. Maya Jackson was next with five. Kadejuha Kennedy finished with 12 points for Sumter followed by N’Dea Kennedy with six. On the boys side, SHS got off to a sluggish start as well, falling behind 7-0 before pulling within 9-8 at the end of the first quarter. The Gamecocks turned things on in the second, though, and Micah McBride connected on three of his four 3-point baskets as SHS outscored West 23-10 in the frame and rolled from there. With the victory, Sumter improved to 13-5 overall and kept pace with South Florence for the region lead as both teams won on Saturday to push their records to 3-1. West fell to 7-11 and 1-3. “We overcame a little adversity at the beginning, which has been our story all year,” SHS head coach Jo Jo English said. “We fought back and got a lot of contributions from a lot of guys. “I thought our defense was outstanding. We created turnovers and, more importantly, converted those into points. We made free throws and took care of the basketball too, which had been our major problems most of the year.” McBride finished with 15 points, one behind Brandon Parker’s team-leading 16 points. Erick White added 11 to give the Gamecocks three players in double figures. Cartier Diarra was the only Knight to post double digits with 12 points. Sumter has a busy region week ahead with South Florence coming to town on Tuesday, a makeup game in Conway on Wednesday and a home game against Carolina Forest on Friday.

Escaped Lynchburg slave inspires book

This photo of John Andrew Jackson escaping his pursuers on horseback, is from his memoir, “The Experience of a Slave in South Carolina” (London, 1862), published by the American Antiquarian Society

Clemson professor seeks local information BY IVY MOORE ivym@theitem.com

J

ohn Andrew Jackson’s life story reads like a novel or a Hollywood movie. The man who was “enslaved on a Lynchburg plantation ... escaped and made his way north ... traveled around Europe lecturing on abolition and his experiences in South Carolina” has inspired Clemson professor Susanna Ashton to undertake the writing of a book on Jackson, and she’s seeking information from local residents who might be related or otherwise connected to him. Ashton has already done a great deal of research on Jackson and has published several articles, including one in the online journal Common Place that makes a convincing case for Jackson’s having influenced Harriet Beecher Stowe’s writing of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” a classic early American novel. With Jonathan D. Hep-

worth, she published “Jackson Unchained: Reclaiming a Fugitive Landscape,” in the journal The Appendix. This article examines Jackson’s escape from slavery, retracing his route from Sumter through Charleston and northward, as Jackson recorded in his 1862 memoir, “The Experience of a Slave in South Carolina.”

In “Jackson Unchained,” Ashton and Hepworth write: The particulars of Jackson’s storied life are as follows: He was born in Sumter District, South Carolina in about 1825 and was owned by Robert English, a successful landowner with various properties and a host of relatives to share and trade slaves with. The plantation Jackson lived on was in a town once known as English Crossroads, later as Magnolia, and finally as Lynchburg. Despite a brutal life of labor and abuse, he found some brief happiness with Louisa, a young woman he married who lived on a nearby plantation owned by the Law family. His owners objected to his marriage and to his spending time with his wife and Jenny, the daughter Jackson and Louisa conceived. Despite repeated whippings for leaving his plantation to be with Louisa, Jackson remained devoted to his family and determined to keep crossing the land between the English and Law plantations.

MATT WALSH / THE SUMTER ITEM

Dr. Susanna Ashton visited Sumter and Lee counties last week to continue her research on John Andrew Jackson, a man who was enslaved on a Lynchburg plantation, escaped to the North before the Civil War and traveled around Europe lecturing on his experiences. He may have influenced Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” In 1846, Ashton and Hepworth write, Jackson was devastated when his wife and daughter were “sold or sent” to Georgia, and he began to plan his escape for Christmas, when slaves were given a three-day “holiday.” He was successful, eventually making his way to Massachusetts. Ashton visited Sumter and Lee counties last week to see the area where Jackson lived and to make contact with people who could aid her research for the book she’s writing. While there is a lot of valuable biographical information on Jackson in his own book, Ashton noted that Jackson lived for about 30 years after the publication of “The Experience of a Slave in South Carolina.” “He speaks about many families, he names the overseers and many of the

slaves,” Ashton said. “He names names. Slave narratives were very concerned with facts because people didn’t believe them, and people challenged them. So therefore they wanted lots and lots of details, so he is chock full of details about the English family, who were his owners, and other families around the area.” In 2010, Ashton said, she edited and wrote an introduc-

tion to a collection of “little known autobiographies of slaves from South Carolina titled ‘I Belong to South Carolina: South Carolina Slave Narratives,’” published by the University of South Carolina Press. Jackson’s was one of the seven important biographies in the collection. While Jackson’s life story is fascinating and historically important, one might wonder why an English professor, rather than a historian, would be interested in the extensive research required to write a book on his later years. Ashton has been teaching English at Clemson University for 15 years. She noted that Clemson is located on land that was once part of the plantation owned by John C. Calhoun. “I began to be interested in what does it mean to be on this ground, how do we tell the story, how do we listen to the stories that are already there,” Ashton said. “So I started teaching about, not the history of slavery, but the writing of people who were enslaved. “I’m interested in how we tell stories about our lives.” While she’s not yet sure where or when Jackson died, Ashton said, “I hope he’s buried near here, because he was interviewed as an old man, where he talks about ‘I’m feeling old and I want to take my bones back to S.C., and I want to be buried near my family.’” She has documentation that shows Jackson traveled back and forth from his home in Massachusetts to Lynchburg, “and he sent barrels of food and clothing, secondhand goods, plows for farmers. He tried to found a

Sumter’s biggest still seized; Mills wins Sousa award 75 YEARS AGO – 1939 June 26-July 1 Billy Rogers was named winner of the Galloway-Moseley Free Throw Trophy for 1939. The handsome trophy was won in open competition to determine which basketball player in Sumter could make the most free throws out of 100 attempted. This trophy has been won by Mac Moise for three consecutive years 193638. This year Mac fell by the wayside during the finals, and Cordes Palmer tied Rogers in the finals only to have Rogers nose him out Yesteryear in the play-off by in Sumter one point. The contest is an annual afSAMMY WAY fair conducted on the Edmunds court at the YMCA. • Ralph Wilson won the Fishel Swimming Trophy. The award is symbolic of the state high school swimming championship won by the Sumter Seacocks this year. Wilson has held the state high school diving championship for the past two years. • Sumter’s Legion Juniors got off to a fast start last week in play for the second district championship, but the locals will face a tough assignment Wednesday when they meet Columbia’s Juniors in the latter’s backyard. After

walloping Manning Friday, 22 to 0, the little Gamecocks returned to home grounds and settled their previously rained-out contest with Columbia by taking an 8 to 3 victory from the Capital City youths on Saturday. • Members of the Sumter High school 1939 state championship swimming squad who will receive the Sumter High Block “S” letter award were announced today by the coach of swimming, Austin M. Francis. A total of 10 letters will be awarded to : Harry Parker, captain; Pat Norris, Stanyarne Stoudenmire, Hank Wilson, Charles Propst, Billy Forester, Deuward Bultman, Randolph Bradham, Fen Murray and Arthur Burnett, manager. By winning the state high school swimming championship, the Sumter High Seacocks brought the Fishel High school swimming trophy back to Sumter from Charleston where it had been for a year as a result of Charleston’s 62 to 61 victory last year over the Sumter swimmers. This year’s meet was held on May 19 at Pocalla Springs. • Iris Hill, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. K.B. Hill, received the YMCA award for the outstanding girl swimmer in Sumter during 1938. Iris has been a member of the Y’s swimming squad ever since she was taught to swim in the “Y” pool. During this time she has been one of the most consistent performers on the squad. She swims all three

competitive strokes in addition to competing in fancy diving events on the low board. Miss Hill was a member of the Sumter Mite team that won the state championship several years ago. • Sumter’s Legion Juniors will play at home tomorrow with the Manning Juniors furnishing the opposition. The game will be played at the Municipal Park at 4 o’clock. The locals will need a victory tomorrow to stay in the race for district honors as they are tied with Columbia for the lead. The little Gamecocks opened up badly against the Capital City youths yesterday in Columbia and allowed them to score 7 runs in the first inning to sew up the ball game before it was 15 minutes old. Cook started on the mound for Sumter but was wild. Errors and base hits didn’t help him any. Tomlinson relieved him after five runs were across. • Sumter chalked up its third straight victory in the Palmetto State league yesterday by pounding out an 11-2 win over Kershaw’s Rebels, cellar dwellers of the circuit with no wins in eight starts. The triumph sent Sumter into third place. The Gamecocks went to work on Lyles early, getting to the veteran Kershaw lefthander for four runs in the first two frames. They extended their margin as the game progressed while Ray Coker, ex-Clemson star,

was holding the visitors to five singles. • Ed Lewis and Luther Wimberly will meet tomorrow in the 36-hole finals match for the championship of the Sunset Country Club. The match will get under way at 10 o’clock. Eighteen holes will be played and then time taken out for luncheon and the final 18 starting around 2 o’clock. Lewis reached the finals by eliminating Dr. Francis Brunson, while Wimberly advanced at the expense of E.H. Moses Jr. Wimberly was club champion several years ago, while Lewis is a newcomer as a finalist. Vernon (Bit) Wilder won the championship last year, but was eliminated this year.

school, an orphanage and a church.” Jackson even tried to buy around 1,000 acres of his former master’s plantation, which English had lost after the Civil War. “The nerve of that! I love that,” Ashton said. “I’m trying to find that plantation. It was described as being at the intersection of Black Creek and Stony Run, and there was a mill on that property that’s probably long gone. It had a lot of timber. Jackson wanted to share it with other families. He thought he could start a community there.” While he did not realize that goal, Jackson was able to buy a few acres near South Lynchburg. “He settled back in Lynchburg for a few years,” Ashton said, “although I am not yet sure if he died there or if he returned to his other home he maintained in Springfield, Massachusetts.” To continue her research, Ashton has made contact with some residents of Lynchburg, where she has been invited to return in March to speak during the 125th anniversary of Warren Chapel. “What I am most interested in is actually making contact with people in the region who might be able to help (in my research),” she said. “As an upstate Clemson person, I know very little about the Sumter/ Lee region, and I’m eager to meet with individuals in the community who might be able to help me contact some of Jackson’s descendants, the churches he was involved with and various properties he was associated with. (I want) to share this wonderful story (and) to reach out to the community and learn more about the complex and loving history that sustained all the people who lived there.” For more information about Jackson, visit the websites: http://theappendix.net/issues/2013/10/reclaiming-a-fugitivelandscape and http://www.common-place.org/ vol-13/no-04/ashton. “I Belong to South Carolina: South Carolina Slave Narratives” by Susanna Ashton can be purchased at www.amazon.com.

finances in the future. DEAR ABBY — I am blessed to have many friends who invite me to parties and gatherings. I met a guy at one of them and we had a nice conversation. A few days later he called me. He said he’d gotten my number from our mutual friend. (I had given her permission to give it out to people who had been at the party.) We talked some more and kept talking and exchanging emails over the course of a couple of months. Because it wasn’t every day or even every week, I thought we were just friends. At the next party he asked me out on a date -- a romantic date. This is a problem. I identify as an

aromantic asexual. I do not feel the things he does. Having to explain my sexual orientation to people is embarrassing. Any advice on how to convey this without ruining the friendship we have developed? Embarrassed in Indiana DEAR EMBARRASSED — Try saying it this way: “I’m flattered, but it would be better if we remain just friends. I think you’re terrific, but I am not a romantic or sexual person. It has nothing to do with you. It’s just the way I am and always have been.” Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Only the state AAA meet in Greenville one week from today remains to be considered, and Coach Steve Satterfield will have the boys intensifying their training grind next week in an effort to make an impressive showing. • It wasn’t by much, but Sumter wrapped up the Lower State AAA baseball crown yesterday with a 1-0 victory over visiting Brookland-Cayce. The win left the Gamecocks with a 10-0 record in the conference, good enough to earn a berth in the best-of-three playoffs with the Upper State winner.

REFLECTIONS

Passenger rails made way for private vehicles T

he Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Train Depot and Railway Express office were removed from Harvin Street in January of 1972. On this page are a number of photographs that provide a unique view of this old Sumter landmark erected at the turn of the 20th century. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weather-beaten facility was removed to make way for a new building that housed a beverage distribution operation.â&#x20AC;? The old terminal played an important role in the history of Sumter, including serving as the location at which President William Howard Taft spoke to the local citizenry from the rear of his private car in 1912. Since the railroad had ceased passenger service through Sumter in 1971, the buildings had fallen into disrepair. Reach Item Archivist Sammy Way at waysammy@ yahoo.com or (803) 774-1294.

Proving mechanics can be trusted

RAYTEVIA EVANS / THE SUMTER ITEM

Dusty Chase, shop foreman at Turner’s Garage & Transmission, checks a customer’s vehicle using a computerized system. Owner Wendell Turner said the price of car repairs has changed over the years due to automobiles continuously changing and becoming more modern. The mechanics stay up-to-date on technological changes in cars with training and certification.

Garages rely on honesty, good reputation to garner new clientele, customer loyalty PRICES FOR COMPARISON

BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com Besides lawyers and politicians, it’s no surprise that a lot of people don’t always think auto mechanics are the most trustworthy professionals. There are too many people to count who have vehicular repair horror stories and embarrassing memories of being stiffed by a few of them. But like the aforementioned professions, some of Sumter’s longtime garages are building clientele and reputation on creating relationships with customers. Over the holidays, Turner’s Garage & Transmission proved that honesty goes a long way in the business world. Sumter resident Tony Parker took his vehicle to Turner’s after purchasing it after the holidays and the timing belt went bad. “It wasn’t too long after I bought the car. I took it to Turner’s and they treated me well,” Parker said. “I spoke with Wendell Turner and they replaced the belt, no charge.” Turner said after replacing Parker’s timing belt, they ran into a problem, but quickly corrected it and informed Parker that the work was free of charge. They were honest and kind to Parker as they are to all of their customers, Turner explained. “The only thing we have in this industry is reputation. It takes time to become a reputable garage,” Turner said. “When you’re looking to get

Just in case you think you’re getting stiffed, here are some possible price ranges for basic services according to Turner and Bradley. Keep in mind, prices may vary depending on the type of car. Consult your mechanic and don’t be afraid to shop around or do your research to make sure you’re getting the best quote.

Bradley’s estimates

Turner’s estimates

Oil change: $30-$60 (Both owners said this can vary if your car takes synthetic oil.) Tire rotation: $15 (about $30 if you ask for rotation and balance) Alignment: $50-$80

Transmission flush: about $400 (Turner said it could run less than that, but newer cars may cost more.) Brake pads: $225-$275 (depending on the car) Air conditioner repairs: $200-$1,500 (according to what services are needed)

your car serviced, you need to look for a place with more of a reputation and good quality than price.” Arthur Bradley, owner of Ace Parker Tire, said being competitive, honest and trustworthy has kept him in business for almost 35 years now. Getting to know customers and making them feel less hesitant about the services his business provides has been a long journey. “You have to build the trust and honesty. It doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years to build those relationships with customers,” Bradley said. “The customer comes first and they’re always right.” Turner admits that he’s not the cheapest game in town, but “you get what you pay for.” With cars incessantly evolving, Turner said the price for different services change, and running the business with certified mechanics costs money. Still, car owners

looking to get an oil change, transmission flush or other services should still be alert and have an idea of what you should be paying. Turner and Bradley both said it’s important for their employees to provide the price for needed services up front before doing any work on the customer’s vehicle. They also inform them of any issues they find while inspecting their cars. As a customer, they noted, you have every right to see what’s going wrong and what mechanics plan to do to resolve the issue. “Ask to see for yourself what they’re talking about and what they’re going to do,” Turner said. “If they refuse, that’s a huge red flag.” Bradley said they often walk through needed repairs with their customers and are up front with any issues with their cars. “Don’t embarrass your customers by surprising them

with problems and prices. Let them know what you’ve found and prices up front before you start the work. Be frank with them and don’t beat around the bush,” Bradley said. Turner’s also has models of different parts of the car so mechanics can demonstrate where the problem is on the customer’s car and what needs to be done to repair it. Both auto shops also have helpful, smiling faces at the front desk which makes customers feel a lot more comfortable with them servicing their cars. Turner and Bradley both have strong ties to the Sumter community, often participating in charity events for children and those in need. Turner’s helps to give away a car each year and Bradley was recently named Humanitarian of the Year for 2013 by the Tire Industry Association. All of these activities, they said, help with branding and building their reputation to continue a profitable business in the automotive industry. “This business is not what it used to be. It’s now at its toughest I’ve seen in my life. Continental will be a blessing to business and the Sumter area bringing in jobs,” Bradley said. “But you also have to be a trustworthy business and give back to your community. That’s how we’ve been here for almost 35 years.” Reach Raytevia Evans at (803) 774-1214.

Americans grapple with income gap

Lifting minimum wage big deal for small companies

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The wealthiest county in America is settled deep in 4 a.m. slumber when Neal Breen treads the mini-mansion subdivisions and snow-blanketed fairways on his way to open shop. There’s two hours yet before the business day begins, but Breen, who is 21, has plenty to do after flipping on the lights. Donning a green apron without taking off his tweed cap, he boils the first of more than 500 bagels, then shovels them into a waiting oven. When the early risers step from their cars at a few minutes past 6, a chalkboard meets them at the door: “Breakfast of Champions.” Breen, who quit college a year ago with hopes of saving money to start his own business, is keenly aware that the wealth in the neighborhoods where he delivers breakfast sandwiches is, for now, beyond reach. He’s long known what it means to have less; he recalls growing up as the son of a pastor whose earnings sometimes made it tough to feed five children. But he does not decry the gap between the Vienna sausage dinners of childhood and the $168,000 median income of the households surrounding this shopping center, about 35 miles from Capitol Hill. It just confirms that the free-market economy is working, Breen says, by rewarding those who do for themselves. “Capitalism is about seizing opportunity. A lot of people get more opportunities than others, but a lot of people aren’t comfortable seizing it,” he says. When President Obama promised to do something about growing economic inequality in his State of the Union address, he spoke to a public whose own experiences have, like

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Neal Breen, 21, works at the Ashburn Bagel & Sandwich Shop on Monday in Ashburn, Va. Breen quit college with hopes of saving money to start his own business. Breen’s, shaped very personal views about who makes it in today’s economy and who gets left behind. “Those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. ... Our job is to reverse these trends,” Obama said. The speech addressed deeply held convictions: Americans know firsthand the challenges of trying to get ahead, and sometimes just getting by, and speak reverently about making sure the country fulfills its promise as a land of economic opportunity.

But in a reporter’s conversations along a drive of more than 400 miles, from communities of wealth to those of poverty, from areas where politics increasingly lean Democratic to those fast tilting Republican, there was little agreement on how to realize that ideal or on what role government should play. “It’s a conundrum,” says Chris Meyer, the owner of a landscaping business, leaving Ashburn Bagel & Sandwich Shop, breakfast in hand. “How do you make a workable system out of being a compassionate people?”

NEW YORK — The dollar amounts may seem modest, but proposals to lift the minimum wage are a big deal for small businesses. It’s an issue that affects large and small companies. But larger companies are more likely to have the financial resources to absorb higher payroll costs. Opponents say a higher minimum wage could force businesses to lay off workers. Supporters say a fatter paycheck will make employees happier and more productive and help companies attract better workers. The debate regarding the minimum wage has intensified. President Obama said in his State of the Union address he’ll sign an executive order requiring companies that have new federal contracts to pay their workers at least $10.10 an hour, up from the current federal minimum of $7.25. Voters in New Jersey approved, in November, a $1 increase in the state’s minimum wage, to $8.25 an hour. Bills to raise the minimum wage were introduced in more than 30 states last year, with increases approved in four. In his speech Tuesday, the president encouraged state and local lawmakers to raise wages. Congress has deadlocked on most legislation amid partisan rancor ahead of the coming midterm elections. “To every mayor, governor, state legislator in America, I say, you don’t have to wait for Congress to act,” Obama said “Americans will support you if you take this on.” About 3.6 million workers have wages at or below the federal minimum, according to the Labor Department. That makes up 4.7 percent of workers who are paid by the hour. It’s not known how many work for small businesses.

A hunter’s shopping spree Item: Outdoors C

offee Pot, my lovely bride, Sherri, and I took a little trip to the beach last Saturday for a day of shopping. Now, I’m not a person that typically likes to shop — I’m more or less the person that knows what he wants, goes into the store, makes a purchase and gets out — but Sherri had some things she wanted to look for in the mall, so Coffee Earle Pot and I Woodward headed to Bass Pro Shop AFIELD & to see how AFLOAT much time we could waste and to see how much damage we could do to the old pocket book. My hunting partner, Jack, and I had been discussing a couple of new ground blinds, so I went through the hunting stuff and got a few prices on the blinds. They ain’t cheap, but they last several years and they sure are comfortable to hunt out of. I suspect a purchase in mid-July, which will give us a chance to get them up and get the deer used to seeing them before the season starts. Turkeys really don’t pay much attention to a new blind that just popped up, but deer seem to. They need an adjustment period. By the time you read this, it will be Feb. 2 and that means the shad spawning run up our coastal rivers is only a few

weeks from getting started. I do enjoy catching those spectacular fish; I haven’t found a better adversary on light line in any of the state’s waters. With my runnin’ buddy, A.D., Coffee Pot and I talking about camping out on his piece of property on the Lower Santee River in just a few weeks to take advantage of the peak part of the run, CP and I spent more than a few minutes in the light lure and jig department, picking up a pack or two of “shad darts.” Shad darts are nothing more than a jig with a brightly painted, triangular looking head and a skirt of feathers; there’s really nothing to them other than they seem to catch shad almost as regularly as do the hot pink jig heads with the green curly-tailed jig. The advantage is that the tail feathers stay on the jig for a really long time, and the plastic curly-tailed jig will be toast after just a couple of fish. I usually have one rod tied to a jig and another fixed with a dart. As the weather warms, a day on the river is really something to look forward to. Speaking of the river, CP and I also made a trip into the fly fishing shop at BPS. During the last mountain trout fishing trip, both of us caught fish on a flyrod and really loved it, however, with the brush on the banks of the river so very close to the water’s edge, we lost countless flies to the overhanging branches. We had to stop in

and purchase a handful of flies for the next outing, which I hope will be in early April, especially if my son, Robert, can join us at that time. I had one more purchase that was at the top of my list for this visit to the Pro Shop, a little person’s PFD, personal floatation device, or as we called it back in the day, a life jacket. My granddaughter, Katie, a.k.a. “Scooter,” just turned 2 years old and has yet to be introduced to the Jon boat. Her father was in a boat long before this time, but he was born during a warmer period of the year, so it suited better. Robert and his wife, Valerie, will be joining my lovely bride and me at the beach later this spring and I can assure you that Scooter will be donning her new, pink PFD and going for a boat ride with “Granddaddy.” I don’t expect any arguments about it, but it really isn’t going to matter. If she loves it as much as Robert did, I might not be able to get her out of the boat in order to catch a flounder. Coffee Pot picked up a new angled post for the pedestal seat in the front of his boat and that was about it. We called Sherri to find out her location and found that she was looking at the Women’s clothing in BPS. She finds something there she likes every so often, this time it was a really nice looking, lightweight coat; just something to throw on when just a little something will do.

Grow your own tea from your garden SARAH WOLFE The Associated Press When temperatures fall, there’s nothing better than a piping hot cup of tea. And as craft and organic tea seeps into the mainstream, tea gardens are becoming a popular way for brew lovers to bypass the store and enjoy the benefits of herbal tea without additives or preservatives. “It just tastes and smells better,” says chef Kimmy Tang, who snips mint, lavender and lemongrass from her garden for herbal teas at her 9021PHO restaurants in Los Angeles. “I also know that it’s 100 percent organic. I don’t use any chemicals to help them grow, and I can taste the difference.” It may sound daunting, but British gardener and author Cassie Liversidge says many tea garden staples may already be at your fingertips. “Honeysuckle, mint, rosemary. They’re all quite common plants, but can be turned into tea,” says Liversidge, author of the forthcoming book “Homegrown Tea: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting and Blending Teas and Tisanes.” She and other tea gardeners offer the following tips to get your feet wet:

GROWING First and foremost, no sprawling English estate is required here. Tea gardens come in many forms, and don’t even need to be in the ground. Tang grows her herbs in a vertical garden hanging on a wall behind her restaurants, while other city dwellers cramped for space use pots and other containers. All you need is dirt, water and some seeds. “A great way to get started is to buy a plastic indoor sun garden at Lowe’s or Home Depot, along with the seeds and pieces of dirt that expand with water,” says McCollonough Ceili, a 26-year-old author who grows lavender, sage, mint and other herbs outside her kitchen window in Tennessee. Liversidge recommends

VITAMIN C “POWER BLEND” TEA Here is a recipe for a Vitamin C “power blend” tea from the forthcoming “Medicinal Gardening Handbook” by Vermont gardeners and neighbors Alyssa Holmes and Dede Cummings: 1 part rose hips 1 part hibiscus 2 parts lemon balm 1 part dandelion blossoms 1/2 part rosebuds Pour into a quart jar and fill with boiling water. Cover and let steep for at least 15 minutes or up to eight hours. Strain before drinking.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Alyssa Holmes, left, and Dede Cummings are authors of “The Medicinal Gardening Handbook.” easy-to-grow plants like mint, lavender or chamomile for beginners. If you’ve already got those growing, take a stab at other popular tea ingredients like coriander, lemon balm, rose hips, hibiscus and jasmine. Keep the plants in an area that gets at least six hours of sunlight each day, rotate them often and monitor moisture per directions on the seed packet.

HARVESTING/DRYING Each plant is unique when it comes to harvesting. The flower tops are the most medicinal part of the rosemary plant, for example, so be sure to clip those off along with the leaves for tea, Liversidge says. Fennel is valued for its seeds, and those must be shaken out from the flowers once they turn brown. Snip flowers like chamomile at the base of their stems, not the top, so you can use the stems, leaves and petals in your brew, according to Liversidge. Many herbs can be used fresh, but drying them is a good way to keep your tea cupboard stocked through the winter. Tie them up and hang them in bundles to dry, or spread them out on a flat surface in the sun. A dehydrator or an oven at a temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit or lower can also be used.

“With my lemongrass, I cut it and freeze it to keep the nutrients locked in,” says Tang. No matter the method, be sure to store your tea ingredients in airtight containers.

BREWING There are a few ways to brew your homemade tea, depending on the ingredients and personal preference. Hershey, Pa.-based writer and photographer Amy Renea prefers to “chop off big hunks” of fresh mint, lemon balm, chamomile and sometimes stevia from her tea garden and put them right in the tea kettle. Once it’s reached boiling, pull the kettle off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes before pouring into your favorite tea cup. “I strain the tea through a small tea mesh strainer, but any strainer will do,” Renea said. Liversidge prefers filling empty tea bags with homemade ingredients — “then you’re not tempted to put too much water with it” — and letting them steep about three minutes before enjoying. For the freshest tea possible, she advises pouring fresh water into your tea kettle every time. It has more oxygen, which will bring out the tea’s flavor. Above is a recipe for a Vitamin C “power blend” tea from the forthcoming “Medicinal Gardening Handbook” by Vermont gardeners and neighbors Alyssa Holmes and Dede Cummings:

Coffee Pot and I had covered almost every inch of Bass Pro Shop and looked at almost everything, on almost every aisle; we spent almost two hours and I spent more than I should have. I’ve been criticized lately for including the names of friends and family into my articles so I wanted to be sure

that I got them all into this article, at least the ones that I do most of my hunting and fishing with. I know I’ve left out my old buddy Clyde, and Cuz, but I’m pretty sure they’ll get over it. I only included the names of the folks that pertained to the shopping/buying trip at hand. Maybe I can fit them in later.

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. Captain Brad Taylor reports that crappie fishing has been pretty slow. A couple of possible patterns can catch fish, and one option is to tight-line starting with rods at various depths from 3-12 feet. Later in the afternoon fish can be on the shallower end when water warms. Another option is to fish around deep brush in the 20 foot range. Whether tight-lining or fishing brush vertically, jig or minnows should be fished very slowly. 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 Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the lake is muddy which has messed everything up, but before the most recent rain fish were starting to move back into their regular areas and habits as the water cleared. Channel catfish can be caught drifting cut herring and shad in and around the river channel, and on some of the warmer days when the sun has been heating the shallows anglers may find that drifting all the way into the backs of the creeks and coves will pay off. Channel catfish will often be back there feeding on shad that followed the warmer shallower water. 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 Catfish: Slow to fair. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that catfish are around the same bait schools as the bass, perch and crappie and Wendell recently caught an 8-pound blue on a minnow. Fish cut herring on the bottom in about 35 feet of water around the bait schools. Lake Thurmond Black bass: Fair to good. Buckeye Lures in Augusta reports the bass bite has been pretty good on Clark’s Hill and it has been consistently taking about 20 pounds to win tournaments. Most of the fish have been in the backs of deep pockets in 10-20 feet of water where they have been caught on Mop Jigs and lead-headed flukes. A bunch of huge striper are back there, too. The best bite has been first thing in the morning and it finishes by 9:00 a.m. Overnight and first thing the bait is very schooled up in the backs, but as the water warms up it ranges out. 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.
