School board to hold ‘legal advice’ meeting BY BRADEN BUNCH bbunch@theitem.com The Sumter School District Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting at 8 a.m. Saturday for the sole purpose of going into executive session. After opening the meeting, trustees will immediately seclude themselves in closed session for, as the agenda reads, “receipt of legal advice.” When asked, both district

officials and trustees were mum about the specific need for the meeting. Board of Trustees Chairman Keith Schultz would only say the board is meeting on the early weekend hour because it was the soonest time since its last meeting on Monday that all of the trustees would be available. Any action the trustees need to take stemming from the executive session would occur in open session before

the board adjourns. The special meeting comes a week after the state Department of Education called for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to open a criminal investigation into the testing practices at Sumter High School. Described by the education department as

some of the worst it had ever seen, the High School Assessment Program testing practices at the local high school came into question after an audit by state officials in April. As part of its investigation, auditors with the education department said they found

a standstill. “There is going to be a day of reckoning,” he said. “When the debt on the high school is paid off in a couple of years, we will have to start paying the principal on the middle school.”

Pinewood Town Council is requiring residents to jump through several small hoops when they request public documents under the state Freedom of Information Act, undermining the purpose of that law, according to South Carolina Press Association Executive Director Bill Rogers. Town officials have been seeking written requests from all residents who seek public information, a policy Mayor Al Pridgen said Thursday is mostly to help out the town’s interim part-time clerk, Felicia Lester. “They can have any policy they want as long as it doesn’t flout the law,” Rogers said. “The law says that certain public records must be made available immediately without a written request. This includes the minutes of all meetings for the preceding six months.” Councilman Leonard Houser said Tuesday that he would like council members to also begin thinking about fees for FOIA requests. “(The Municipal Association of South Carolina) manual allows for council to charge fees for products with requests for information, and we’ve seen a volume going higher,” Houser said. “I’m talking about a minimum fee to provide for Freedom of Information requests and copying products, and (ask council members) to have something in mind for the next meeting.” Rogers said Pinewood cannot, however, set a specific fee for requests. “They can charge no more than the actual costs for the copies and

Lee district’s $62K request expected to be approved BY RANDY BURNS Special to The Item BISHOPVILLE — The Lee County School District’s request for an additional $62,000 in revenue from the county for the 2013-14 budget year is expected to be approved by Lee County Council when

third reading is considered later this month, according to Lee County Administrator Alan Watkins. Watkins and Chairman Travis Windham met with the Ways and Means Committee and Lee County Treasurer Wayne Capell on Wednesday to find a way to “make it happen.”

On Tuesday night, county council played it safe by passing second reading on a school budget at this year’s current funding level, $5,293,306. Windham said he was concerned about increasing the money spent on education when growth in the county is at

Suspect arrested after man shot in head BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com A Sumter man is facing charges after a man was shot in the head. Shane Danlante Dennis, 23, of 4980 Cotton Acres Road, was arrested Monday and charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

At 2:37 a.m. Sunday, a 23-year-old man was driving in the 3000 block of Broad Street when someone DENNIS reportedly drove up beside him in a mid-sized dark car and began shooting into his vehicle, striking him on the right side of the head.

Kidz Klub will continue despite lack of funding

The victim managed to drive the car to his girlfriend’s house and was conscious and able to describe the incident to sheriff’s deputies who responded to the scene. He was transported to the hospital by Emergency Medical Services. Investigators noted several bullet holes in the rear of the vehicle and a shattered

back window. The vehicle was towed for further processing. Law enforcement searched for the suspect early Sunday morning at his listed address, his mother’s house, as well as his grandparents’ home in the 3300 block of Ebenezer Road. On Monday, Dennis reportedly turned himself in at

the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office and was booked into Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center. Bond was denied on the attempted murder charge, and Dennis was issued a $25,000 surety bond on the weapon possession charge. Reach Bristow Marchant at (803) 774-1272.

JOHN LAND RECEIVES ORDER OF THE PALMETTO

BY JADE ANDERSON janderson@theitem.com Even without the usual funding source, Valencia Gray-Williams hopes to put on a successful camp next week. Kidz Klub — a summer camp that offers “academic enrichment opportunities” that help “students meet state and local standards in core academic subjects,” according to kidzklub.us — is set to run from June 17 through July 11. The children will not meet on July 4. “The four-year 21st Century federal grant that was administered by the state Department of Education was supposed to primarily serve as seed TRANSPORTATION money,” said Buses will begin picking up at the the project difollowing locations 8 a.m. Monday: rector. “After that, if you are • Hillcrest Middle School going to con• Food Lion on S.C. 441 tinue, it is to be • Cherryvale Community Center self-sustaining. • Delaine Community Center It’s a pretty • Pocalla Springs Elementary School steep order to • Food Lion at U.S. 15 South go from a six• Sumter High School digit or six-fig• Food Lion at Palmetto Plaza ure grant to • Sumter Mall nothing.” • North HOPE Center Park So she and • Crosswell Elementary School the staff are asking for parents to pay $25 per week per child for activities and travel. “We’re trying to work with just a donation, and we’re trying to pull it off with the same quality,” she said. The camp is set to focus on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM education. It will also feature a fitness component to help combat youth obesity, Gray-Williams said. Scheduled activities include tae kwon do and creating presentations on the computer, according to the website. “We’ll be partnering with Central Carolina Technical College to provide some of those things,” she said. “For community service, we are scheduled to take a van to Columbia and volunteer with Harvest Hope Food Bank. We’ll also go to the VA (Veterans Administration) hospital and give vets cards the students have created on the computer.” Students will also have a hearing and eye exam. “I’m excited about that component because they’ve agreed to donate money from the screenings back to the program,” she said. The screenings are not an additional fee but would be billed to the child’s insurance company, Gray-Williams explained. Transportation is also available. The camp will be held at the South HOPE Center. For more information, visit kidzklub.us or call the South Sumter Resource Center at (803) 436-2276 and ask for Valencia Gray-Williams or Carol DuPont.

State pension fund posting 12.7 percent return COLUMBIA — South Carolina’s pension fund investments are expected to post double-digit earnings for the current fiscal year. According to the agency that oversees the fund, the latest report for the state’s portfolio shows a net return of 12.7 percent. The Retirement System Investment Commission said Thursday its investments earned $3 billion between last July 1 and April 30, pushing the fund’s worth to almost $28 billion. Chief Investment Officer Hershel Harper told state retirees in Columbia this week the portfolio should close June 30 with doubledigit earnings despite choppier markets in recent months.

Health and Environmental Control because of a tuberculosis outbreak at a Greenwood County school. The lawsuits accuse officials of unnecessarily exposing others to the person who was originally infected. The school district also said Wednesday it would pay for anyone who wanted to get tested and is also having buildings at Ninety Six Primary School sanitized. Since May, more than 600 people associated with the school have been tested for tuberculosis. Of those, 74 have tested positive for exposure to the disease, and a dozen have developed tuberculosis.

S.C. sending 16 people to air show; Haley not going COLUMBIA — State Commerce officials will be in Paris next week without Gov. Nikki Haley to tout South Carolina’s growing aerospace industry, Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt said Thursday. It marks the first time the Repub-

lican governor has not been part of the state’s delegation at an international air show since she took office. Hitt said Haley’s presence at the 50th Paris Air Show isn’t necessary. Previously, he has said Haley’s attendance is essential to selling South Carolina because company CEOs want to meet with the state’s CEO.

Lexington attorney waives competency hearing COLUMBIA — A Lexington attorney accused of extorting more than $1 million from clients has waived his right to have a court hearing on his mental competency. Richard Breibart made that decision in court papers filed this week. Breibart is scheduled for trial later this summer on charges of extortion, mail fraud and wire fraud. His attorney has said Breibart may have been insane at the time of his alleged crimes and might not be able to help in his own defense.

Census data: S.C. growth centers on coastal areas CHARLESTON (AP) — South Carolina’s population increased more than 2 percent from 2010 through 2012, with some of the fastest growth in the nation centered along the state’s coastline, according to new estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday. The state’s population grew to 4.7 million, up about 2.1 percent and about 100,000 from two years earlier. Some of the growth is be-

cause of births, and much was caused by people moving to South Carolina — about 63,000 over the twoyear period. The population had grown by more than 15 percent from 2000 to 2010, giving the state a seventh seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. As during the 2000s, rapid growth continues along the coast, the center of the state’s $16.5 billion

tourism industry. The state’s coast now has three of the nation’s fastestgrowing counties and three of its fastest-growing municipalities. The new figures show that the population of Berkeley County outside Charleston grew to almost 190,000, up 6.7 percent, making it the 35th fastest-growing county in America. Nearby Mount Pleasant is the nation’s 38th fastest-

growing municipality. Last year, its population was almost 72,000, up almost 6 percent from two years earlier. Horry County, whose population grew 4.8 percent to 282,000, is the nation’s 73rd fastest-growing county. And Dorchester, whose population increased 4.4 percent to 142,000, is the 97th fastestgrowing county in the United States. Charleston and North

Charleston also are among the country’s 100 fastestgrowing municipalities. North Charleston grew 4.4 percent to 102,000 people, while Charleston grew 4.3 percent to 126,000. Rural Allendale County had the state’s sharpest drop in population between 2010 and 2012. Its population dropped 4.1 percent to just under 10,000 residents. Lee County’s population dropped 3 percent to 18,600.

Rural America has first ever loss in population WASHINGTON (AP) — Living in a rural Nevada town, Moe Royels recalls a more bustling time years ago when retirees poured in to enjoy the warm desert climate, nearby casinos and quiet community. But soon boom turned to bust, and years after the recession ended, Royels still wonders if things will ever fully turn around in small towns like his. Across the U.S., rural counties are losing population for the first time ever because of waning interest among baby boomers in moving to far-flung locations for retirement and recreation, according to new census estimates released Thursday. The census estimates, as of July 2012, show that would-be retirees are opting to stay put in urban areas near jobs. Recent weakness in the economy means some boomers have less savings than a decade ago to buy a vacation home in the countryside, which often becomes a full-time residence after retirement. Cities are also boosting urban living, a potential draw for

boomers who may prefer to age closer to accessible health care. For instance, in Royels’ Lyon County, Nev., about 30 miles east of Reno, small towns prospered during the housing boom. Spillover residents from California’s expensive Bay Area flocked to the area, drawn to the affordable housing, temperate weather and lack of a state income tax. But after the housing bubble burst, the retirees stopped coming. On Main Street in the town of Fernley, the Wigwam, one of the town’s oldest restaurants, now does half the business it used to, according to Royels, who opened the diner in 1961 and sold it five years ago. “People moved out of town,� Royels said from his seat at the restaurant, where he returns every afternoon for a cup of coffee. “Some of these subdivisions are still sitting vacant, with the curb and the gutter in but nothing else.� It’s not just happening in his county. Analysts say the rural decline spreads far and wide and could be long-term.

“This period may simply be an interruption in suburbanization, or it could turn out to be the end of a major demographic regime that has transformed small towns and rural areas,� said John Cromartie, a geographer at the Agriculture Department who analyzed the data. About 46.2 million people, or 15 percent of the U.S. population, reside in rural counties, which spread across 72 percent of the nation’s land area. From 2011 to 2012, those non-metro areas lost more than 40,000 people, a 0.1 percent drop. The Census Bureau reported a minuscule 0.01 percent loss from 2010 to 2011, but that was not considered statistically significant and could be adjusted later. Rural areas, which include manufacturing and farming as well as scenic retirement spots, have seen substantial movement of residents to urban areas before. But the changes are now coinciding with sharp declines in U.S. birth rates and an aging population, resulting in a first-ever annual loss.

Shaw dines out BY AIRMAN 1ST CLASS DANIEL BLACKWELL 20th Fighter Wing Public Affairs Special to The Item A Dining Out was held at the Carolina Skies Club and Conference Center on June 8 in honor of enlisted personnel and the history of Shaw Air Force Base. The event was sponsored by Team Shaw’s Air Force Sergeants Association, Shaw Diamond Council, Shaw Top 3, Shaw 5/6, Shaw Rising Four Council and the Shaw Enlisted Spouses Club. “This event is held in honor of our enlisted personnel,� said Col. Clay Hall, 20th Fighter Wing commander. “We appreciate all that you do daily.� The Dining Out’s purpose is to provide an opportunity for Air Force personnel to see how ceremony and tradition play an important role in military life. It helps enhance morale and provide a setting for recognizing individuals and unit achievements. During the Dining Out, enlisted and officer personnel played various roles with accompanying titles. Hall played the role of “President� during the Dining Out. Members of the “Mess� (or Team Shaw members attending the event) were made to address the president prior to doing anything throughout the event. At the start of the event, a history of Dining Out and military protocol was given to those in attendance in the form of playfully informal banter between Mister and Madam Vice; the appointed masters of ceremonies and liaison for the “President.� Any requests, toasts and protocol violations were

given through them. Additionally, during such events there is a head table in which distinguished leadership and guests sit. In honor of enlisted members and their service, two spots were reserved at the head table for the lowest ranking airman and soldier present in the room. The Dining Out tradition has a set of rules and regulations that must be adhered to throughout the event. Violations of the Dining Out protocol result in the member being sent to the “Grog Bowl.� Rules ranged from not leaving the mess without the president’s permission, to not eating ones food in a manner befitting a gentlemen or lady. The Grog Bowl is a communal container that contained a concoction of various liquids. Two options were available, “leaded� (alcoholic), and “unleaded� (non-alcoholic). The bowls and their contents were provided by funds from Shaw’s 5/6 Council. When sent to the Grog Bowl, members were required to face the bowl, fill their cup three-fourths of the way, about face, state a fact about Shaw’s history and toast, “To the Mess!� After which, they were required to drink the contents of their glass without removing it from their lips. Once completed, they had to invert the cup on top of their head and yell “Airpower,� place the cup in the proper receptacle, salute the President of the Mess and return to their seat. If at any point during this process there was an infraction of Grog Bowl procedure, violation of mess protocol or questioning of the “Presidents� decisions, they were

made to restart the process until completed properly. Rank, grade, duty title or stature within the community held no significance throughout the event. From E-1 to O-10, no one was exempt from Dining Out protocol. Attendees were actually encouraged to look for Dining Out rule violations throughout the evening. They were warned however that if they were wrong in their accusation, that they themselves could be sent to the Grog Bowl instead of the accused. But before any fun and games started, proper military protocol, courtesies and honors were rendered. At the beginning of the ceremony, Shaw’s Color Guard posted the colors, the national anthem was performed and the significance of the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action table, set aside in honor and remembrance of those who were unable to at-

tend, was recognized and explained. Once dinner was served many individuals, varying in rank and Dining Out protocol violations, were sent to the Grog Bowl for dining infractions and the amusement of the Mess. The Grog Bowl was closed after dinner was complete so attendees could let their guard down and focus on the message of the guest speaker, retired and former Chief of Staff of the Air Force, Gen. Michael T. Moseley. Moseley spoke about the unique threats today’s military face, to include uncertainly with various global powers around the world. Using history to illustrate and support his point, he encouraged military personnel to stay alert, be attentive, vigilant and not sacrifice their integrity during difficult times. He also expressed his concern about the treatment of

military members of each other, and why if not done properly the adverse affect it can have on mission success. “Everyone here, from the youngest soldier to the oldest airmen has dignity, value and pride in who they are and what they do,� Mosley explained. “If we are to achieve mission success there can be absolutely no compromise on the moral and ethical treatment of our men and women in uniform.� He finished by thanking airmen, soldiers, sailors, marines and the Coast Guard for their tireless service to their country in defending freedom. “Thank you for what you all do every day, and thank you for defending this country, because it’s worth it.� Mosley said. “Not often enough does someone like me tell you thank you, and salute you for what you’re doing.�

$65,000. No one was home at the time of the fire, and the cause could not be immediately determined. An arson investigator with the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene, and the fire is under investigation. A burned vehicle, thought to be a GMC SUV, was found on the side of the road in the 3400 block of Yarborough Road near S.C. 341 in Olanta at 11:06 a.m. Tuesday. The remains of the car were towed from the scene.

Highly efficient ‘passive homes’ starting to gain ground in U.S.

FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 2013

FIELD DAY AT WILSON HALL

BY JOANN LOVIGLIO The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — After decades of near silence, a passive voice is making itself heard in American architecture. So-called passive houses, which have been around in Europe but never really caught on in the United States, are basically built around the idea of making houses airtight, super-insulated and energy efficient. The goal: a house that creates nearly as much energy as it consumes. Think of being able to keep your house warm without a traditional big furnace, cool with no air-conditioning unit. “At this point there’s no reason why any developer can’t now build this way,� said Tim McDonald, whose firm has designed and built energy-efficient buildings with eco-friendly materials for more than a decade in Philadelphia and recently entered the world of passive housing. Signature features often include thick outside walls and roofs, highly-insulated windows and frames and a south-facing orientation. The ventilation system pulls in fresh outdoor air and pumps out stale indoor air, but not before it’s used to heat or cool the incoming air to the same temperature. Houses built this way can stay comfortable using 90 percent less energy than traditional construction

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Passive homes are seen in Philadelphia on June 6. These homes are built around the idea that houses can be airtight, super-insulated and energy efficient.

homes, according to the Passive House Institute US, an Illinoisbased certification, research and consulting group. Though the idea was born in the U.S., the roughly 20,000 internationally certified passive houses worldwide are in Europe — predominantly Germany, Austria and Scandinavia. Fewer than 100 exist in the U.S. — but that’s changing, from chilly New England to toasty Arizona to muggy Baton Rouge, said Katrin Klingenberg, Passive House Institute US co-founder and executive director. “People associate the passive house movement with Europe, but it comes out of the (American) oil embargo and energy crisis in the 1970s,� she said. “Then political change happened, (energy) prices came down ... but in Europe that didn’t happen, so they had reason to continue the research.� The shift was symbolized most clearly,

perhaps, at the White House, when solar panels installed in 1979 during President Carter’s tenure were removed in 1986 under President Reagan’s administration. (The Obama administration promised in 2010 to put them back but hasn’t yet done so.) Going passive isn’t solely the realm of new construction, either. In McKeesport, outside Pittsburgh, a historic YMCA is being turned into a multiunit passive building to house people at risk for homelessness. In New York City last year, Julie Torres Moskovitz’s firm Fabrica 718 retrofitted a 110-year-old Brooklyn brownstone into the city’s first certified passive house. “There’s a whole movement,� said Torres Moskovitz, author of the new “The Greenest Home� (Princeton Architectural Press, 2013), on super-insulated and passive house design. “It’s a hotbed in Brooklyn of doing these retrofits.�

Court says human genes cannot be patented BY JESSE J. HOLLAND Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that companies cannot patent parts of naturally occurring human genes, a decision with the potential to profoundly affect the emerging and lucrative medical and biotechnology industries. The high courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unanimous judgment reverses three decades of patent awards by government officials. It throws out patents held by Salt Lake City-based Myriad Genetics Inc. on an increasingly popular breast cancer test brought into the public eye recently by actress Angelina Jolieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revelation that she had a double mastectomy because of one of the genes involved in this case. Justice Clarence Thomas, who wrote the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, said that Myriadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assertion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the DNA it isolated from the body for its proprietary breast and ovarian cancer tests were patentable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; had to be dismissed because it violates patent rules. The court has said that laws of nature, natural phenomena and abstract ideas are not patentable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hold that a naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. However, the court

A technician loads patient samples into a machine for testing at Myriad Genetics in 2002 in Salt Lake City. The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Myriad cannot patent the BRCA genes, which are tested to check a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk for breast and ovarian cancer.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

gave Myriad a partial victory, ruling that while naturally occurring DNA was not patentable, synthetically created DNA could be patented. The court said that synthetically created DNA, known as cDNA, can be patented â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it is not naturally occurring,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. Patents are the legal protection that gives inventors the right to prevent others from making, using or selling a novel device, process or application. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has been awarding patents on human genes for almost 30 years, but opponents of Myriad Genetics Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patents on the two genes linked to increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer say such protection should not be given to something that can be found inside the human body. The company has used its patent to come up with its BRACAnalysis test, which looks for mutations on the breast

cancer predisposition gene, or BRCA. Those mutations are associated with much greater risks of breast and ovarian cancer. Women with a faulty gene have a three to seven times greater risk of develop-

ing breast cancer and also have a higher risk of ovarian cancer. Jolie revealed last month that her mother died of ovarian cancer and that her maternal grandmother also had the disease. She said

she carries a defective BRCA1 gene that puts her at high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers, and her doctor said that the test that turned up the faulty gene link led Jolie to have both of her

healthy breasts removed to try to avoid the same fate. The courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling on synthetic DNA leaves the door open for future genetic patent work for companies such as Myriad, lawyers said. Thomas noted there are still ways for Myriad to make money off its discovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Had Myriad created an innovative method of manipulating genes while searching for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, it could possibly have sought a method patent,â&#x20AC;? he said. And he noted that the case before the court did not include patents on the application of knowledge about the two genes.

PINEWOOD from Page A1 for searching and copying the records,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically, anything from 10 cents to a quarter a page is considered reasonable around the state. However, there are incidents where people try to charge outrageous amounts. The Fairfield County administrator wanted $30,000 for a reporter to see his emails, and in Lexington County a school board wanted $500,000 to reveal copies of emails. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s against the law.â&#x20AC;? He said the actual cost to search for the records could be tabulated by looking at the time a clerk spends doing so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever her hourly wage is, for example, they might charge for that if it takes a long time,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they cannot charge someone for a lawyer to look at the documents.â&#x20AC;? Rogers said public bodies cannot even ask a person why they want documents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to give their name,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. Pinewood resident Manley C. DuBose said he was asked for even more than his name when he requested minutes for all meetings held since January, a copy of all the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business licenses and other docu-

ments in early May. He said town officials asked him why he wanted the information, which Rogers said is a clear violation of the state FOIA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They cannot ask why you want a document, unless they think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for commercial solicitation,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. DuBose, however, told The Item that he wanted to know how Pinewoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget stood for both the current fiscal year and how it was being planned for the next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Councilwoman) Sarah Mathis brought it to my attention at one of their other meetings that the town hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t collected as much revenue this year as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done in the past with the business licenses,â&#x20AC;? DuBose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council said they were going to see who had licenses, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and who needs to get them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what brought it to my attention. I know for a fact that (there are people in Pinewood) who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have them for their businesses, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m required to have one.â&#x20AC;? DuBose said Councilman Leonard Houser told him his request had to be in writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had no problem with that, so I handwrote it,â&#x20AC;? DuBose said of his initial request dated May 2 that

THE ITEM

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think a whole lot of it. I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hiding stuff, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I think.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Manley C. DuBose, Pinewood resident states in part, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please provide (copies of ) all business license holders for the town of Pinewood ... (and) a copy of the town ordinance pertaining to licenses ... (and) a list of workers (compensation) holders.â&#x20AC;? Two weeks later, DuBose emailed a request for the minutes, agendas and financial statements from all regular meetings held since January, a copy of the proposed 2013-14 fiscal year budget and the ordinance pertaining to the budget. He also made a blanket request for â&#x20AC;&#x153;any other documents that were distributed to our town council within the past five months.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all that information, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not received the workers comp information or the May financial statements,â&#x20AC;? DuBose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was also told to be more specific about what documents I wanted from my (blanket request). I told them I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what documents. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what

they got, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I said all.â&#x20AC;? In place of documents that DuBose didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive, he instead got a memo from Pridgen telling him that his requests had been received. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous,â&#x20AC;? DuBose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They claim they had all the information the first day I went up there.â&#x20AC;? DuBose said Pridgen also told him to â&#x20AC;&#x153;stop causing or making trouble, something like that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never told him or anyone that,â&#x20AC;? Pridgen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never said to stop causing trouble. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not so. If anyone else has told him that, I have not told him to stop causing trouble.â&#x20AC;? While DuBose had hoped to make his concerns known during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, he was put in the agendaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public comments portion instead of a separate agenda item. Pinewood Town Council grants persons speaking during public comments a two-minute window to express their thoughts on anything pertaining to the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was limited to two minutes there, so I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what I needed to say,â&#x20AC;? DuBose said. Mathis also told DuBose and others speaking during public comment that â&#x20AC;&#x153;no comments from council will be made on public comment; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just pre-

A9

senting your questions, but nothing is up for discussion.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please present your comments to the council, not at the council,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will not accept any talking out of turn or (anything) where I suspect youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to be nasty to me or another council member. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to be stating, not telling me. (A Sumter County sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy) is here, and you will have to leave.â&#x20AC;? Rogers said the last statement is a clear violation of First Amendment rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outrageous,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a violation of anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Amendment rights.

Pushing the envelope

W

ASHINGTON — Thirty-five years ago in United States v. Choate, the courts ruled that the Postal Service may record “mail cover,” i.e., what’s written on the outside of an envelope — the addresses of sender and receiver. The National Security Agency’s recording of U.S. phone data does basically that with the telephone. It records who is calling whom — the outside of the envelope, as it were. The content of the conversation, however, is like the letter inside the envelope. It may not be opened without a court order. The constitutional basis for this is simple: The Fourth Amendment protects against “unreasonable searches Charles and seiKRAUTHAMMER zures” and there is no reasonable expectation of privacy for what’s written on an envelope. It’s dropped in a public mailbox, read by workers at the collection center and read once again by the letter carrier. It’s already openly been shared, much as your phone records are shared with, recorded by, and (e) mailed back to you by a third party, namely the phone company. Indeed, in 1979 the Supreme Court (Smith v. Maryland) made the point directly regarding the telephone: The expectation of privacy applies to the content of a call, not its record. There is therefore nothing constitutionally offensive about the newly revealed NSA data-mining program that seeks to identify terrorist networks through telephone-log pattern recognition. But doesn’t the other NSA program — the spooky-sounding James Bond-evoking PRISM -give you the willies? Well, what we know thus far is that PRISM is designed to read the emails of nonU.S. citizens outside the United States. If an al-Qaeda operative in Yemen is emailing a potential recruit, it would be folly not to intercept it. As former Attorney General Michael Mukasey explains, the Constitution is not a treaty with the rest of the world; it’s an instrument for the protection of the American citizenry. And reading other people’s mail is something countries do to protect themselves. It’s called spying. Is that really shocking? The problem here is not constitutionality. It’s practicality. Legally this is fairly straightforward. But between intent and execution lies a shadow — the human factor, the possibility of abuse. And because of the scope and power of the NSA, any abuse would have major consequences for civil liberties.

The real issue is safeguards. We could start by asking how an Edward Snowden, undereducated, newly employed, rootless and grandiose, could have been given such access and power. We need a toughening of both congressional oversight and judicial review, perhaps even some independent outside scrutiny. Plus periodic legislative revision — say, reauthorization every four years — in the light of efficacy of the safeguards and the nature of the external threat. The object is not to abolish these vital programs. It’s to fix them. Not exactly easy to do amid the current state of national agitation — provoked largely because such intrusive programs require a measure of trust in government and this administration has forfeited that trust amid an unfolding series of scandals and a basic problem with truth-telling. There are nonetheless two other reasons these revelations have sparked such anxiety. Every spying program is a compromise between liberty and security. Yet here is a president who campaigned on the proposition that he would transcend such pedestrian considerations. “We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals,” he declared in his first inaugural address, no less. When caught with his hand on your phone data, however, President Obama offered this defense: “You can’t have 100 percent security and also then have 100 percent privacy. ... We’re going to have to make some choices as a society.” So it wasn’t such a false choice after all, was it, Mr. President? Nor does it help that just three weeks ago the president issued a major foreign-policy manifesto whose essential theme was that the War on Terror is drawing to a close and its very legal underpinning, the September 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, should be not just reformed but repealed to prevent “keeping America on a perpetual wartime footing.” Now it turns out that Obama’s government was simultaneously running a massive, secret anti-terror intelligence operation. But if the tide of war is receding, why this vast, ever expanding NSA dragnet whose only justification is an outside threat — that you assure us is ever receding? Which is it, Mr. President? Tell it straight. We are a nation of grown-ups. We can make choices. Even one it took you four years to admit is not “false.” Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@ charleskrauthammer.com. © 2013, The Washington Post Writers Group

LETTER TO THE EDITOR School board made wrong choice in Bynum My apologies to the Sumter community, as I was one of those writing letters to The Item advocating a new superintendent for the combined school district for a fresh start. I believed the school board would hire the best candidate available. It is now apparent to most of us, except the board, that they have

made a poor choice. Mr. Bynum came from a school district mired in controversy, and now we see the same happening here. I don’t know what criteria the board used in their selection process, but I have heard that Mr. Bynum was not the most qualified of the candidates. If this is the case, they should re-examine these criteria before they ever go through the process again

and race should not be a factor, not that I am implying that it was. The most qualified should be a factor. The quality of our schools affects all of us, whether we have school age children are not, and it is time for the board to realize their mistake and make the difficult decisions for the betterment of our community. Mr. Bynum needs to go. ROBERT W. WILDER Sumter

The scowling face of the state

W

ASHINGTON — As soon as the Constitution permitted him to run for Congress, Al Salvi did. In 1986, just 26 and fresh from the University of Illinois law school, he sank $1,000 of his own money, which was most of his money, into his campaign to unseat an incumbent Democratic congressman. Salvi studied for the bar exam during meals at campaign dinners. He lost his campaign. Today, however, he should be invited to Congress to testify about what happened 10 years later when he was a prosperous lawyer and won the Republican Senate nomination to run against a Democratic congressman named Dick Durbin. In the fall of 1996, at the campaign’s climax, Democrats filed with the Federal Elections Commission charges against Salvi’s campaign, alleging campaign finance violations. These charges dominated the campaign’s closing days. Salvi spoke by telephone with the head of the FEC’s Enforcement Division, who he remembers saying: “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.” He was speaking to Lois Lerner. After losing to Durbin, Salvi spent four years and $100,000 fighting the FEC, on whose behalf FBI agents visited his elderly mother demanding to know, concerning her $2,000 contribution to her son’s campaign, where she got “that kind of money.” When the second of two federal courts held that the charges against Salvi were spurious, the lawyer arguing for the FEC was Lois Lerner. More recently, she has been head of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, which has used its powers of delay, harassment and extortion to suppress political participation. For example, it has

told an Iowa right-to-life group that it would get tax exempt status if it would promise not to picket Planned Parenthood clinics. Last week, in a televised House Ways and Means Committee hearing, Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., Salvi’s former law partner, told the riveting story of the partisan enforcement of campaign laws to suppress political competition by distracting Salvi and entangling him in bureauGeorge cratic snares. WILL The next day, the number of inches of newsprint in The Washington Post and New York Times devoted to Roskam’s revelation was the number of minutes that had been devoted to it on the three broadcast networks’ evening news programs the night before: Zero. House Republicans should use their committee chairmanships to let Lerner exercise her right to confront Salvi and her many other accusers. If she were invited back to Congress to respond concerning Salvi, would she again refuse to testify by invoking her Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination? There is one way to find out. Durbin, the second-ranking Senate Democrat who will seek a fourth term next year, defeated Salvi by 15 points. He probably would have won without the assistance of Lerner and of the campaign “reforms” that have produced the FEC’s mare’s nest of regulations and speech police that lend themselves to abuses like those Salvi experienced. In 2010, Durbin wrote a letter urging Lerner’s IRS division to pay special attention to a political advocacy group supporting conservatives. Lerner, it is prudent to as-

sume, is one among thousands like her who infest the regulatory state. She is not just a bureaucratic bully and a slithering partisan. Now she also is a national security problem because she is contributing to a comprehensive distrust of government. The case for the National Security Agency’s gathering of metadata is: America is threatened not by a nation but by a network, dispersed and largely invisible until made visible by connecting dots. The network cannot help but leave, as we all do daily, a digital trail of cellphone, credit card and Internet uses. The dots are in such data; algorithms connect them. The technological gathering of 300 billion bits of data is less menacing than the gathering of 300 by bureaucrats. Mass gatherings by the executive branch twice receive judicial scrutiny, once concerning phone and Internet usages, another concerning the content of messages. The case against the NSA is: Lois Lerner and others of her ilk. Government requires trust. Government by progressives, however, demands such inordinate amounts of trust that the demand itself should provoke distrust. Progressivism can be distilled into two words: “Trust us.” The antecedent of the pronoun is: The wise, disinterested experts through whom the vast powers of the regulatory state’s executive branch will deliver progress for our own good, as the executive branch understands this, whether or not we understand it. Lois Lerner is the scowling face of this state, which has earned Americans’ distrust. George Will’s email address is georgewill@washpost.com. © 2013, Washington Post Writers Group

According to the figures obtained from the district, of the 39 teachers leaving the school, eight had been transferred to other schools in the district, while 31 instructors were leaving the district entirely. Since those numbers were made available, at least one other veteran Sumter High teacher has been transferred to another school in the district. Many of these Sumter High teachers were in-

cluded in the district’s June personnel report, which was approved by the trustees by a 6-1 vote at Monday’s board meeting. Of the 23 Sumter High teachers listed as announcing they were leaving their jobs, 20 were resigning from their teaching positions, while only one was retiring and an additional two were not offered contracts. Saturday’s board meeting will be held at the district’s headquarters on Wilson Hall Road and is open to the public. Contact Braden Bunch at (803) 7741201.

LEE from Page A1 Watkins said the county’s future debt service obligations could have a significant impact on taxpayers from a debt millage standpoint. “However, council members have expressed their commitment to public education, evidenced by the fact council has approved operational increases for the schools every year since I have been involved in local government,” he said. “And the consensus from council is that they will approve sufficient millage with some carryover from the current year to meet the request in funding by the district for FY14.” Windham said he is confident the final approval by the county council will include the revised budget allocation. “We met, and I feel good that we have found a way to make it happen,” Windham said. “We are going to be able to do it without increasing (property tax) millage.” The state requires counties to maintain a

minimum maintenance of effort for education and cannot spend less money than they did the previous year. Kristie Stokes, the school district’s finance director, said the $5,355,746 is needed to balance the budget. Stokes said the proposed balanced budget includes cuts in one administrative position and two teaching positions. Returning teachers will receive credit for one additional year of teaching experience, but on average most teachers are two years behind where they should be, Stokes said. “We’re having the same problem you’re having,” Stokes told council on Tuesday. “We just don’t have enough money.” The school district’s proposed total budget including local, state and federal sources is $13,437,230, up from $13,337,189 this year. The Lee County Board of Education will hold a public hearing on its school budget at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Lee Central High School.

U.S. says Assad used chemical weapons WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States has conclusive evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime has used chemical weapons against opposition forces seeking to overthrow the government, crossing what President Obama has called a “red line” that would trigger greater American involvement in the crisis, the White House said Thursday. In response, two U.S. officials said Obama planned to send weapons and ammunition to bolster the rebel forces, though the specific instance and timeline for delivery were unclear. Sen. John McCain, RAriz., who has been one of the strongest proponents of U.S. intervention in Syria’s two-year civil war, said he had also been told of Obama’s decision to arm the rebels. Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, said Obama had decided to provide direct “military support” to the opposition but

was unable to publicly discuss the type of aid that would be provided. “This is going to be different in both scope and scale in terms of what we are providing,” said Rhodes, adding that the additional aid would be aimed at strengthening the effectiveness of the Syria opposition. The U.S. has so far provided the Syrian rebel army with rations and medical supplies. Thursday’s announcement followed a series of urgent meetings at the White House this week that revealed deep divisions within the administration over U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war. The proponents of more aggressive action — including Secretary of State John Kerry — appeared to have won out over those wary of sending weapons and ammunition into a war zone where Hezbollah and Iranian fighters are backing Assad’s armed forces, and al-Qaida-linked extremists back the rebellion.

Howard’s Rock at Memorial Stadium at Clemson University was recently vandalized. A chunk was chipped away from the rock sometime on June 2 or June 3. Clemson football players traditionally rub the rock before running onto the field before the start of games.

CLEMSON — Lifelong Clemson fan George Hamilton eyed the damage done and swapped through the overriding emotions Thursday — from shock to disgust, from reflection to sadness. It’s not just a rock. It’s The Rock. The rock of Clemson’s football game-day spirit and time-honored tradition. With youth sports camps continuing as scheduled on a toasty Thursday under clear

Wainwright first to 10 victories NEW YORK — Adam Wainwright became the major leagues’ first 10-game winner by pitching seven scoreless innings and sent Matt Harvey to his first loss of the season, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the New York Mets 2-1 Thursday in a classic pitching matchup. Wainwright (10-3) retired his first 11 batters before David Wright’s single, and allowed four hits with six strikeouts and two walks. Wainwright matched his career best by winning his fifth straight start, dropped his ERA to 2.18 and got his 1,000th career strikeout when Wright was called out on a first-inning curveball. Known best in New York for freezing Carlos Beltran with a called third strike to end Game 7 of the 2006 NL championship series, Wainwright had been 0-4 with an 8.46 ERA in four starts against the Mets since beating them on April 18, 2010.

Gator for a Day football camp Saturday Lakewood High School will have a free 1-day football camp teaching fundamentals and life lessons on Saturday, June 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lakewood High School Football Stadium. The event is for any students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Campers are encouraged to bring a T-shirt, shorts and athletic shoes. A pizza lunch will be included for free. The first 100 kids will receive a free Gator T-shirt. Registration begins 8:30 a.m. Special guests are expected to attend the camp. KIDD INTRODUCED AS NETS’ COACH

NEW YORK — Meet the new guy, Jason Kidd. Less than two weeks after ending his long, All-Star career, Jason Kidd acknowledged he has “a lot to learn about coaching” Thursday as he took the Brooklyn Nets job despite having no experience leading a team from the bench. Now a point guard who was all about assists in his 19 years

on the court will be looking for a little help. CHEEKS IS PISTONS’ NEW COACH

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Maurice Cheeks is ready for a new challenge, undaunted by the fact that the Detroit Pistons have been a revolving door for coaches lately. Cheeks is the franchise’s fourth coach in six seasons, so is he concerned about a job where so many others have failed? AUTHORITIES INVESTIGATE FATAL CRASH

BRIDGEPORT, N.J. — New Jersey State Police on Thursday were trying to determine what caused the dirt track crash that killed NASCAR driver Jason Leffler on Wednesday night.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Willis McGahee knew when he showed up at minicamp this week that he faced long odds of

keeping his starting job since the Denver Broncos had used a high draft pick to select a running back for the second straight season. Forty-eight hours after his arrival, that reality hit home for McGahee when the Broncos released the 31-year-old running back who led them in rushing last season despite missing the final two months with a right knee injury.

With four players missing for the P-15’s due to the North-South All-Star Games, Johnson was pleased to see how his team responded. “We had some guys who got an opportunity tonight and took advantage of it, which is what you want to see,” said Johnson. “We came out tonight and played good baseball, which is what we expect to do when we are home.” The P-15’s will host Manning tonight in a 7:30 p.m. contest.

Amateurs enjoy solid performances at Open BY DAN GELSTON The Associated Press ARDMORE, Pa. — Cheng-Tsung Pan had a pretty good day on the course. He felt even better about it when he scanned the scores. “When I look at the scoreboard with my last name up there, it’s pretty cool,” he said. Pan was one of several amateurs who had a respectable showing in Thursday’s opening round of the U.S. Open. Pan shot a 2-over 72 at Merion Golf Club and put himself in solid position to make the cut. Kevin Phelan topped the four amateurs who completed early rounds with a 1-over 71 that put him four shots behind leader Phil Mickelson. Pan and Phelan did great at No. 13: Both parred the hole and picked up a birdie or two elsewhere. “It’s always nice to be able to compare yourself to the best in the world,” Phelan said. “It’s the first time I’ve had a round anywhere close to them. It’s nice, but there’s a long way to go.” Pan, a 21-year-old who hails from Taiwan, is a junior at the University of Washington. He missed the cut in his other Open appearance in 2011, saying he was too excited and had too many distractions to play his best game.

Amateur Kevin Phelan tees off on the eighth hole during Thursday’s first round of the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.

He brought only two friends with him to Merion. And this time? “I had it going,” he said. Pan, who also answered questions in Mandarin, wants to graduate from Washington and become the first member of his family to earn a degree. He played nine holes Wednesday with his idol, Luke Donald, but never could bring himself to say how much he admired his game. “Nah, too embarrassing,” he said. Phelan, who failed to

MARTIN from Page B1 things when I get there.” FMU was Martin’s only solid offer, he said, but Florence-Darlington Technical and Anderson University were other options he was considering. But Francis Marion was the clear choice from the beginning, he added. “They’ve got a great program and they’ve been very solid the last few years, so that was appealing,” Martin said. “They’ve also got new facilities and a brand new stadium. So those were all big factors.” Martin also liked the campus itself as well as FMU head coach Art In-

abinet. “He’s real nice; I like him a lot,” Martin said. “And it’s a very nice place. I enjoyed my visit there.” Martin batted second for the Swampcats the last four years and manned second base. Former LMA head coach Billy Sylvester said he knew what to expect from Martin every time he stepped to the plate or had a ball hit to him. “He’s as good they come, potentially,” Sylvester said. “Anytime a ball was hit to him, we just didn’t worry about it. It was an automatic out.

ROCK from Page B1 wasn’t made known to the public until Wednesday night. “It’s pretty low, extremely low,” said the 25-year-old Hamilton, a Charleston native and graduate of James Island Charter High studying forestry as a Clemson graduate student. “They allow a lot of freedoms with it. My cousin, for their wedding portrait, they got dressed up in their tuxedo and dress, and they took the cover off and everything to take the picture. It’s fairly easy to get in there and get a picture or something like that, especially this time of year.” It’s hard to tell anything’s changed to an unknowing passerby. The marble mount hoisting Howard’s Rock is unblemished while the

famed fixture rests normally upon its pedestal with its usual glass encasing, after officials cleaned up the mess. About 15 percent of the rock’s total mass is missing — not nearly enough to deter Clemson’s famed pregame ritual. “Thankfully, most of Howard’s Rock is still intact and we will do what is necessary to protect it going forward,” football head coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “I know our coaches and players look forward to rubbing Howard’s Rock, running down the hill, and furthering one of the great traditions of college football when we open the season against Georgia on August 31.” However, Swinney ex-

make the cut in the 2010 Open, plans to turn pro later this year and attend Q-school. With more rounds like Thursday, Phelan just might reach his goal of making the Walker Cup team. “It certainly can’t hurt,” said Phelan, 22, who lives in St. Augustine, Fla. He was nervous before his first tee, but calmed down after his first swings. He came away from a practice round with Masters champion Adam Scott with some useful advice for taming the soggy course.

“Offensively, he did everything you could have wanted from a No. 2 guy. He hit for average and had a high on-base percentage. He stole bases, he got bunts down and he was very good with the hit-and-run.” Martin batted around .400 each of the last two seasons, Sylvester said, and was a key contributor to the Swampcats’ run to the SCISA 3A state semifinals each of the last three seasons as well. “I want to thank Coach Billy for all that he’s done in helping me get here and get this opportunity,” Martin said. “I know I have a lot more to learn and a lot more to improve on to be able to play well at this level.”

pressed his displeasure at the situation, matching the fan base’s sentiments. “It is very disappointing that someone would disrespect our unique tradition to this extent. It is one of the iconic images of the game,” Swinney said. “I am sure Clemson police will investigate this thoroughly and hold the person accountable for this behavior.” The incident report obtained Thursday morning from Clemson’s police department indicated facts are few and there are no suspects. The report was filed at 2:30 p.m. June 3, when Clemson assistant athletic director for facilities and grounds Gary Wade reported trespassers removed a large piece of the white flint rock along with its Plexiglas cover.

U.S. OPEN from Page B1 which proved plenty tough by yielding only one other round under par to the 78 players who completed the first round. Because of two rain delays, the first round won’t be completed until Friday morning. Mickelson won’t have to tee it up again for another 24 hours. Enough time to fly back to San Diego? “I don’t want to push it, no,” Mickelson said with a tired smile. Tiger Woods faced a tougher road. He appeared to hurt his left hand after trying to gouge out of the deep rough on the opening hole. He grimaced and shook his left wrist again after hitting a 5-wood out of the rough on the fifth hole. He already had three bogeys though five holes before starting to make up ground with a 50-foot birdie putt on the par-4 sixth hole. Woods, however, failed to take advantage on the short stretch of holes in the middle of the round, and he was shaking his hand again after shots out of the rough on the 10th and twice on the 11th. He was 2-over for his round and had a 4-foot par putt on the 11th when play was stopped for the day. “I’ve got a lot of holes to play tomorrow,” Woods said. “And, hopefully, I can play a little better than I did today.” Luke Donald was 4-under through 13 holes, making one last birdie before leaving the course. The first round was to resume at 7:15 a.m. Friday, and the forecast called for drier weather for the rest of the week. Masters champion Adam Scott, playing with Woods and Rory McIlroy, was 3-under through 11 holes,

rock were on the ground near the gate. Campus officers Gary Leslie and James Graham were on site to collect pictures and a statement from Wade and university employees Jeff Kallin and William Lewis, who discovered the damage. The pedestal was not dented or scratched, but it was found with a partial fingerprint, which was checked by officers. The plexiglass case was turned over to police officer Zach Owen for further inspection of possible prints, though wrongdoers wouldn’t necessarily have been the only ones touching the artifact. A source within the department said surveillance cameras, stationed around Memorial Stadium, had yet to turn up many clues. The incident types reported are petit larce-

while defending U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson was 2-under through eight holes. McIlroy was even par. Lee Westwood got the full Merion experience. He was 3-under when his approach on the 12th hit the wicker basket — the signature at Merion, replacing traditional flags — and bounced off the green, leading to a double bogey. For Mickelson, this could be the start of yet another chance to win the major championship he wants so dearly. Or maybe he’s setting himself up for more heartache. He already has been a runner-up a record five times in the U.S. Open. “If I’m able — and I believe I will — if I’m able to ultimately win a U.S. Open, I would say that it’s great,” Mickelson said. “Because I will have had ... a win and five seconds. But if I never get that win, then it would be a bit heart-breaking.” Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium, the only other player from the morning wave to break par, picked up birdies on the short seventh and eighth holes for a 69. Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, Tim Clark, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Jerry Kelly were the only others who at least matched par at 70. Clark and Kelly were at 2 under deep in their rounds until running into trouble, which isn’t hard to do in the U.S. Open, especially at Merion. Clark took a double bogey-bogey stretch in the middle of his back nine. Kelly was one shot behind Mickelson until a double bogey on the 18th hole. “It’s a lot tougher than they say it is,” Schwartzel said.

ny (theft of low-value items) and malicious injury to state property. Damage was estimated initially at $500 and stolen property at $200, though Leslie indicated the actual amounts are pending investigation. Three undergraduate students working for the university’s housing staff this summer stopped by to review the rock for themselves. Patrick Canterbury, a fifth-year senior and a third-generation Clemson student from Pittsburgh, couldn’t believe it. “It’s a symbol. It’s been here for decades. You’ve heard of attempts in the past that people have tried to vandalize it and it’s always been foiled,” said Canterbury, recalling a 1992 incident when fans attempted to remove the rock prior to the

game against South Carolina. “I guess naively, I always thought it was somewhat invincible. I mean, it’s a rock, so how much damage can you really do to it? Then you see this.” Hamilton sorrowfully observed the damage, standing outside the gates where the Tigers always roar their way onto Frank Howard Field to kick off home games. He was comforted knowing that particular ritual can’t be crushed. “Across the country, people know when Clemson has a home game, they know what that is. They’ve titled it the most exciting 25 seconds in college football,” Hamilton said. “And it is. It’s huge. “But it’s going to be a big deal — bigger than it is now.”

10 things to know about the College World Series BY ERIC OLSON The Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Omahaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual summer party, the College World Series, begins Saturday at TD Ameritrade Park. Familiar faces like LSU and North Carolina, along with newcomer Indiana and quasi-newcomer North Carolina State, are among the eight teams vying for the national championship of Division I baseball. Here are 10 things to talk about while you tailgate in the parking lot, sit in the stands or watch at home. 1. BUSTED BRACKET:

The way the NCAA tournament has played out so far, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess which team will raise the championship trophy on June 25 or 26. Only three of the eight national seeds reached the CWS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No. 1 North Carolina, No. 3 Oregon State and No. 4 LSU. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tied for the fewest since the NCAA went to the current tournament structure in 1999. The five other teams that made it to Omaha won super regionals on the road, the most ever. 2. PRIDE OF THE BIG TEN:

No pressure, Indiana, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been awhile â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three decades, actually â&#x20AC;&#x201D; since the Big Ten has made it this far. The 1984 Michigan Wolverines were the last Big Ten team in the CWS, but the conference hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won a game in Omaha since the Wolverines beat Stanford 11-4 in 1983. The last Big Ten national champion? Ohio State in 1966. 3. BEAVERS ON A ROLL:

Oregon Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top three starters have done all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been asked of them and more. Andrew Moore, Matt Boyd and Ben Wetzler have combined to go 33-5, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve pitched six innings or more in 35 of their 47 starts. Moore, a freshman right-hander, has won nine straight, and his 14 wins are tied for

most in the nation. 4. BULLDOGS, BY A WHISKER:

In his first 22 years as a head coach, Mississippi Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Cohen required players to be clean shaven. Sophomore pitcher Trevor Fitts convinced Cohen to ease the facial-hair ban after giving him a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation that showed all the baseball greats who sported beards and mustaches. Given the green light, about a dozen players put away their razors, and the Bulldogs rolled off 17 straight wins to start the season and reached the CWS for the first time since 2007. 5. NOT SO BRAWNY BRUINS:

UCLA comes to Omaha batting .251, ranking 253rd out of 296 Division I teams. No team in the last decade has made it to the CWS with a lower average. In fact, no other CWS team over that span has come in batting lower than .271. Pitching and defense are what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about for the Bruins, who are 15-2 in one-run games and 34-1 when allowing the opponent three runs or fewer. 6. STRONG-ARMED RODON:

North Carolina Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carlos Rodonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nation-leading strikeout numbers are impressive, but so is his ability to keep on dealing when other pitchers would have called it a day. The burly lefthander has started 17 games, tied for most in the nation, and has thrown 104 or more pitches in 12 of them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone over 125 in six games, including his season high-matching 133 against Rice last Saturday. 7. DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T FORGET ABOUT THIS GUY:

North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cody Stubbs canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t escape the shadows of two teammates â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No. 6 overall draft pick Colin Moran (Marlins) and third-round pick Kent Emanuel (Astros). Fact is, Stubbs would be the biggest star on most other teams. The senior first baseman, taken by

the Royals in the third round, is batting a team-leading .366 and is third nationally with 76 RBIs and fourth with 26 doubles. 8. HIT ME ONE MORE TIME:

Louisville sure does have a knack for getting smacked by baseballs. The Cardinals have been hit by pitches a nation-leading 128 times. Few players have been beaned as often as

Coco Johnson. The Cardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cleanup hitter has been hit 23 times, including twice in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super regionalclinching win over Vanderbilt. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to bother him. He reached base four times. 9. SLICK-FIELDING TIGERS:

LSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s .980 fielding percentage is best among CWS teams and fifth-best in the country, but the Tigers are just

CWS umpires can use video replay have been expanded to include balls hit down an outfield line to determine if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fair or foul. Last year, instant replay was approved at the CWS for the first time and was limited to reviewing whether a batted ball cleared the fence, went foul or whether a fan had interfered. No plays were reviewed in 2012.

.964 in five NCAA tournament games. Most of the sloppy play occurred in one regional game, against Sam Houston State. LSU committed five errors that day, almost 10 percent of its season total of 51. The Tigers made just one error in their super regional against Oklahoma. 10. INSTANT REPLAY:

Stylish mobster series ‘Magic City’ returns BY KEVIN MCDONOUGH

The Sumter Combat Veterans Group will meet at 10 a.m. Friday, June 21, at the South HOPE Center, corner of South Lafayette Drive and East Red Bay Road. All area veterans are invited.

8 PM

FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 2013

The mobster series “Magic City” (9 p.m., Starz, TV-MA) returns for a new season. “Magic” is all about style. And true to the gangsters it depicts, it’s not terribly subtle. It’s “Mad Men” meets “The Godfather” in Miami at the dawn of the 1960s. “Magic” also recalls HBO’s movie-making style of the 1980s and ‘90s, when that premium network was more likely to make movies about John Gotti and the Rat Pack than Liberace. Gunplay, the F-word and beautiful women, clothed and unclothed, are on ample display here. Those used to be the ingredients that set HBO apart from mere television. Ironically, it was “The Sopranos” and its rich character development and novelistic storytelling that announced HBO’s evolution and reflected a shift in cable television drama that would lead to shows like “Mad Men,” created by “Sopranos” alumnus Matthew Weiner. On the surface, “The Sopranos” was a gangster soap opera. But it was about so many other things, including family dynamics, business arrangements, navigating life in the suburbs, the passing of the “Greatest Generation” and the aging of baby boomers. “Magic” does not strive to be so textured or nuanced. There’s not terribly much beneath the surface. As season two begins, mobbed-up hotelier Ike Morgan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is behind bars, and his occasional partner, the violent Ben Diamond (Danny Huston), wor-

ries that he’ll squeal under pressure. Ike’s gorgeous wife, Vera (Olga Kurylenko), and family will do anything to spring the patriarch. And it’s not certain if that means another deal with Diamond, aka “The Butcher,” or an arrangement with Ike’s sister-inlaw, Meg Bannock (Kelly Lynch). Season two will involve Ike’s efforts to reconcile Cuba’s new radical leadership with the casino owners he sent into exile. It will also return Vera to the stage, practicing the Cuban dance routines that made her famous and caught Ike’s attention when he became a grieving widower. Ike does a lot of brooding and wears plenty of good-looking suits. Any character development is difficult when a show this expensive is produced more like a fashion shoot than a drama. Fans of “The Godfather” will enjoy the casting of James Caan as volatile gangster Sy Berman. Alex Rocco, who played Mo Green in “The Godfather,” makes the most of his smaller role as Ike’s father, a radical communist, atheist and a former bookmaker. • Networks aimed at female viewers who stayed home on a Friday night used to entertain them with helpings of “Pretty Woman” or

“Under the Tuscan Sun.” Should we be amused or alarmed that Lifetime has determined that its audience will be pleased with a “Hoarders” marathon (6 p.m. to 11 p.m.)? And is this any more or less depressing than the thought of a “guy” audience spending their Friday nights at home watching “Sons of Guns” (8 p.m., r, Discovery) and an installment of “How We Invented the World” (9 p.m., Discovery, TV-PG), which are entirely focused on the advances in guns and firepower?

Tonight’s Other Highlights • An archaeologist with a shaky past makes a remarkable discovery on the eve of his death on “Bones” (8 p.m., Fox, r, TV-14). • A plump stowaway accompanies a wistful widower on a balloon ride of a lifetime in the 2009 Pixar adventure “Up” (8 p.m., Disney). • A dangerous disciple emerges on “The Following” (9 p.m., Fox, r, TV-14). • The gang creates an aquarium based on Houdini’s legend on “Tanked: Unfiltered” (9 p.m., Animal Planet). • Malaysian criminals target a decorated officer on “Blue Bloods” (10 p.m., CBS, r, TV-14). • On “Treehouse Masters” (10 p.m., Ani-

mal Planet): Demanding Texas clients envision a spa in the branches that creates tricky plumbing issues.

Cult Choice Teens have trouble adjusting to a new town’s social scene, dominated by punk vampires in the 1987 comedy/horror movie “The Lost Boys” (8 p.m., VH1), starring Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Haim and Dianne Wiest. Another stylish generational touchstone from director Joel Schumacher.

Series Notes Well-done, medium and rare on “Undercover Boss” (8 p.m., CBS, r, TV-PG) * “Dateline NBC” (8 p.m.) * A greener take on dry-cleaning on “Shark Tank” (8 p.m., ABC, r) * Nikita stays undercover on “Nikita” (8 p.m., CW, r, TV-14) * “What Would You Do?” (9 p.m., ABC) * Dean dislikes zombies on “Supernatural” (9 p.m., CW, r, TV-14) * A pre-election sex scandal seems contrived on “Hawaii Five-0” (9 p.m., CBS, r, TV-14) * “Rock Center With Brian Williams” (10

p.m., NBC) * “20/20” (10 p.m., ABC).

Late Night Amy Adams, Mary McCormack, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Whitney Cummings are on “Chelsea Lately” (11 p.m., E!, r) * Jack Hanna and Benedict Cumberbatch appear on “Late Show With David Letterman” (11:35 p.m., CBS, r) * Armie Hammer, Dave Salmoni and Boxer Rebellion on “The Tonight Show” (11:35 p.m., NBC) * Will Smith and Seth Rogen appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (11:35 p.m., ABC, r) * Adam Levine, Cedric the Entertainer and Ariana Grande featuring Mac Miller visit on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” (12:35 a.m., NBC) * Craig Ferguson hosts Emily Mortimer and Barry Rothbart on “The Late Late Show” (12:35 a.m., CBS).
