And so it begins. Sumter City Council will begin the process of crafting next year’s municipal budget this Tuesday, when city administration presents a preliminary mark-up to council members for consideration. The preliminary budget is the result of weeks of consultation with the heads of the city departments, and Tuesday’s presentation is only the beginning of a lengthy revision

process across several council meetings between now and the end of the fiscal year on June 30. “We’re going through all our projected needs, and as we progress, new needs come up,” said City Administrator Deron McCormick. Work on the budget is expected to continue McCORMICK up until this week’s council meeting, McCormick said. Department heads began hashing out preliminary budgets for their own departments

in January, and a series of staff meetings over the past month has helped combine those visions into a single city budget. But more work still needs to be done. “The draft budget is not going to be in balance, and of course by the end it has to be,” McCormick said. “As always, you have more needs than you have resources to meet them... We’ll take input from the council and try to cut down some of the proposals.” Council members will likely

Quake forces evacuations in Southern California LOS ANGELES (AP) — A moderate earthquake that rattled a swath of Southern California forced several dozen people in one community out of their homes after firefighters discovered foundation problems that made the buildings unsafe to enter, authorities said Saturday. Fire crews red-tagged 20 apartment units in a building in the Orange County city of Fullerton after finding a major foundation crack. Structural woes including broken chimneys and leaning were uncovered in half a dozen singlefamily houses, which were also deemed as unsafe to occupy until building inspectors clear the structures. The damage displaced 83 residents. Despite the evacuations, Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered about 25 miles south of downtown Los Angeles mostly frayed nerves. The quake was preceded by two smaller foreshocks, and more than 100 aftershocks followed, including a magnitude-4.1 that hit Saturday afternoon, the

largest in the sequence so far. No injuries were reported. Residents were inconvenienced and some lost valuables, but “thankfully the damage wasn’t greater,” said Chi-Chung Keung, a spokesman for the city of Fullerton. Business owners in Orange County spent the aftermath sweeping up shattered glass and restocking shelves. Utility crews worked to restore power and shut off gas leaks and water main breaks. A rock slide in the Carbon Canyon area of nearby Brea remained closed to traffic. The Red Cross opened a shelter in neighboring La Habra and closed it once 38 people who stayed overnight returned home. “Everything is starting to get settled down here,” La Habra police Sgt. Mel Ruiz said. In Fullerton, some residents will have to stay elsewhere until building inspectors can check out the red-tagged apartments and houses and give an all-clear,

Fire Battalion Chief John Stokes said. Another 14 residential structures around the city suffered lesser damage, including collapsed fireplaces. A water-main break flooded several floors of Brea City Hall, and the shaking knocked down computers and ceiling tiles, Stokes said. Friday’s jolt was the strongest to strike the greater Los Angeles region since 2008. Southern California has been in a seismic lull since the deadly 1994 Northridge earthquake killed several dozen people and caused $25 billion in damage. The latest quake hit a week after a magnitude-4.4 centered in the San Fernando Valley shook buildings and rattled nerves. It appeared to break a one-mile segment of the Puente Hills thrust fault, which stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles and caused the 1987 Whittier Narrows quake that killed eight people. The rupture lasted half a second, scientists said.

Sumter Community Visioning–VIP will hold its regular monthly membership meeting at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the board room of the SanteeLynches RTA Building on South Harvin Street. The speaker will be Dr. Luns Richardson, president of Morris College, who will present a program focused on the educational opportunities available at the college. This is a continuation of the organization’s recent emphasis on local education opportunities available both in the city of Sumter and Sumter County. Past speakers have represented Central Carolina Technical College, the University of South Carolina Sumter and Sumter County School District. In April, the presentations will be by Sumter County Adult Education and South Sumter Resource Center. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting to learn about the programs at Morris College. VIP will also recognize representatives from the various Neighborhood Watch Committees and other organizations involved in its efforts to improve the quality of life throughout Sumter County.

Man charged in threat against S.C. sheriff ORANGEBURG — An Orangeburg businessman is facing criminal charges after a deputy says he angrily threatened the local sheriff. A bond hearing was scheduled Saturday for 54-year-old Randall Dale Gregory. Authorities say he was arrested Friday for comments he made to a deputy on Wednesday threatening Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. Gregory is charged with threatening the life of a public employee and making a bomb threat. A sheriff ’s office statement says a deputy spoke to Gregory while responding to a report that batteries and tires had been stolen from vehicles at his auto shop. Deputies say Gregory threatened to shoot Sheriff Ravenell if he was ever on the auto shop’s property, and also threaten to drive a tank to the sheriff ’s office building and blow it up.

25 drug companies phasing out antibiotics

F

BY MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — Twentyfive pharmaceutical companies are voluntarily phasing out the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in animals processed for meat, the Food and Drug Administration said earlier this week. Citing a potential threat to public health, the agency in December asked 26 companies to voluntarily stop labeling drugs important for treating human infection as acceptable for animal growth promotion. The FDA did not name the one company that has not agreed to withdraw or revise its drugs. The companies will either withdraw the drugs from animal use completely or revise them so they would only be able to be used with a veterinarian’s prescription. Many cattle, hog and poultry producers give their animals antibiotics regularly to make the animals grow faster and ensure that they are healthy. Withdrawing the animal

Twenty-five pharmaceutical companies are voluntarily phasing out the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in animals processed for meat, the Food and Drug Administration has announced. drugs is designed to limit antibiotic-resistant diseases in humans as that resistance has become a growing public health problem. Repeated exposure to antibiotics can lead germs to become resistant to the drug so that it is no longer effective in treating a particular illness. In September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released estimates that more than 23,000 people a year are dying from drug-resistant infections. The biggest risk is from germs spread in hospitals, and it’s not clear how much of the problem is related to the use of drugs in animals that become meat. But the FDA has said this is one step

toward addressing the problem. FDA said it was working with industry on the issue because it was an easier and faster route than the protracted regulatory process. Two of the leading manufacturers of animal antibiotics, Zoetis and Elanco, said they would comply. The FDA said the 25 companies represent 99.6 percent of the supply the agency is targeting. Consumers increasingly have clamored for antibioticfree meat. McDonald’s, among other companies, has moved to limit the drugs in the animals that supply their meat, pushing many animal producers to go along.

Study finds many preteens have high cholesterol BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer There’s fresh evidence that a lot of young people could be headed for heart trouble. A large study of preteens in Texas found that about onethird of them had borderline or high cholesterol when tested during routine physical exams. The results seem to support recent guidelines that call for every child to have a cholesterol test between 9 and 11 — the ages of the 13,000 youths in this study. Many doctors and adults have balked at screening all children that young, but researchers say studies like this may convince them it’s worthwhile. “A concerning number of children” are at risk of heart problems later in life, and more needs to be done to prevent this at an earlier age, said Dr. Thomas Seery of Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. He led the study, which will be presented at an American College of Cardiology conference in Washington this weekend. Estimates are that by the fourth grade, 10 to 13 percent of U.S. children will have high cholesterol. Half of them will go on to have it as

adults, raising their risk for heart attacks, strokes and other problems. High cholesterol rarely causes symptoms in kids. Many genes and inherited conditions also cause high cholesterol but not obesity, so it can be missed especially in youths who are slim or athletic. The new study involved children having routine physicals from January 2010 to July 2011 at the largest pediatric primary care network in the nation, more than 45 clinics in the Houston area. One-third were Hispanic, about one-third were white, and 18 percent were black. About one-third were obese. Unhealthy total cholesterol levels were found in 34 percent. LDL or “bad cholesterol” was borderline or too high in 46 percent, and HDL or “good” cholesterol was borderline or too low in 44 percent. Just over half had normal triglycerides, another type of fat in the blood. Boys were more likely than girls to have higher total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides, Seery said. Hispanics were more likely to have higher cholesterol and triglycerides. “I would hope that data like these would get the attention of general pediatricians,” because many cases

of disease are being missed now, said Dr. Elaine Urbina, director of preventive cardiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She was on the expert panel appointed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute that wrote the screening guidelines issued in 2011 and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. They call for screening everyone between age 9 to 11 and again 17 to 21. “Very few people know their entire family history,” and many forms of high cholesterol occur in people who are not obese, so screening is needed to catch more cases, she said. High cholesterol doesn’t necessarily mean the child needs medicines like statin drugs, she said. The guidelines stress diet and lifestyle changes as the first step.

ood poisoning is caused by eating contaminated food. Symptoms, such as vomiting and diarrhea, can occur within 30 minutes of consuming these foods and last for 24-48 hours. Those who are going through chemo or who have diabetes already have a weakened immune system and may have long term consequences. These tips for selecting foods and preparing them proMissy vided by Corrigan the foodsafety program at the Center for Science in the Public Interest can help prevent you from getting sick.

MEAT Ground beef is the most dangerous because it may contain bits from many animals. Grinding can further spread E.coli. Mechanically tenderized steaks can push bugs on the surface to the inside which can be harmful if the steak is not fully cooked. Marinade-injected meats (“enhanced” or “flavored”) have been infused with saltwater and added seasonings. This process can push bugs inside the meat as well.

POULTRY Ground chicken or turkey can contain up to 20 percent skin and fat which is most likely the contaminated part. Be sure to look for “chicken meat” or “turkey meat” on the label. Enhanced or flavored poultry has been injected with a flavored saltwater solution. Not only do you get more salt, but you are paying for more water.

SEAFOOD Examine seafood for freshness. As time passes, fish begins to look dull and uneven in color. It should have good color and be moist. Ask for what the freshest fish is. Fish that came in the store that day could have been sitting on the boat

TIPS FOR SAFE FOODS • Look for “No antibiotics administered” • Cook meats thoroughly • Always wash your hands for days or even weeks.

DELI MEATS Listeria is a harmful bacteria that is a concern with deli meats. It can live on plastic and metal, and in water. It can be almost impossible to get rid of once it is present and it is especially harmful for those with weakened immune systems. Pre-packaged meats are less likely to be contaminated. Dispose of deli meats, fresh or pre-packaged, within 3 days of opening.

MILK AND EGGS Buying organic milk can help avoid synthetic growth hormones and residue. Avoid various bacteria like Salmonella and E. coli by always drinking pasteurized milk. Cagefree and organic eggs are no less likely than other eggs to harbor Salmonella and other bacteria. Avoid consuming raw or undercooked eggs.

PRODUCE No matter if it is certified organic, locally grown, domestic or imported, all produce is likely to be contaminated. It is better to choose whole fruits and vegetables rather than those that have been cut and pre-packaged. Re-washing the prepackaged produce could expose them to more harmful bacteria found in your sink.

DIAMOND FROM PAGE A1 “It’s a blessing what they did for her,” Tanigra said. “It was exciting and we had a great time.” At Galloway & Moseley, Diamond made her final stop on the daylong adventure. She received a gleaming tiara, some earrings and a necklace from the jewelry store. The quiet young girl smiled throughout the visit. “Thank you, I like it very much,” she said. During the shopping spree Diamond had wished for, she said she was most excited about her new headphones, so she could listen to her favorite

artist, Katy Perry. Danny Chandler of Galloway & Moseley said the jewelry store supports Make-AWish through the Jewelers Children’s Fund, which is a national organization of jewelers that supports children’s charities such as Make-AWish and St. Jude Children’s Hospital. “Every year at the jeweler’s convention we have a large banquet that supports the fund,” he said. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses

and diseases. Gary Linn, the area supervisor for Make-A-Wish, said children are referred to the foundation by parents, teachers and social workers. “Sometimes they even call themselves,” he said. Gary Linn and his wife, Kim, volunteer with the organization and several other local groups which support special needs children, such as Special Olympics and the Buddy Walk.

Top Striker wins late in Carolina Cup Steeplechase CAMDEN (AP) — Jockey Willie McCarthy bided his time before making his winning move until late in Saturday’s 82nd running of the $50,000 Carolina Cup Steeplechase knowing he had plenty of horse underneath him. With three fences left, the 30-year-old native of Ireland overtook race-leading Easy Reach and rode Top Striker to victory by 1 ½-lengths for the horse’s owner, Sue Sensor of Camden. The final time for the 2 1/8mile trip over 11 hurdles for novice steeplechasers was 4:01 2/5. Easy Reach held on for second while Cat Feathers, the

lone mare in the field of six, finished another two lengths back in third. For Sensor and Camdenbased trainer Arch Kingsley, this was their second time teaming up for a Carolina Cup winner. In 2011, Sensor’s Sunshine Numbers won the Camden spring classic by a race-record 27 ¼-lengths. This time, jockey Jeff Murphy took Easy Reach to the front from the drop of the starter’s flag with Top Striker in close pursuit. Cat Feathers — trained in Camden by Kate Dalton and ridden by her husband, Bernie Dalton — sat in third.

The top three stayed that way until the field headed to the ninth fence. It was there that McCarthy said he decided a day earlier while walking the Springdale Race Course to make his move aboard Top Striker. “I had a lot of horse coming three (fences) from home,” McCarthy said of Top Striker, a 5-year-old gelding. “I just didn’t want to get into position where he was coming up against a horse with a lot of speed down the stretch.” Top Striker took the lead for keeps heading into the 10th fence and held off a game Easy Reach.

S

umter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis deserves a medal. He closed the infamous Club Miami across from Shaw Air Force Base, and went the extra mile doing it. During the hearing in Columbia, the lawyer for the club (a former federal prosecutor) had this to say: “Sumter County, in and of itself, is a very violent county. It has a higher rate of violence than other counties in the state, and the club itself sits in an area that has a higher rate of crime than most parts of Sumter.” That’s not even close to statistically true, and he leaves out the most important facts. The crimes Sheriff Dennis and his team dealt with at Club Miami were almost all alcohol and drug-related, and confined to the people doing the drinking, using the drugs and driving around Sumter County in the middle of the night after being in such clubs. You don’t need Sherlock Holmes to deduce that those activities lead to bad outcomes, and the people Sheriff Dennis is locking up aren’t usually involved with innocent bystanders. They’re shooting each other (and their family members) because guns, drugs and alcohol don’t mix. The sheriff went on to say this: “We will be monitoring all clubs so that it won’t escalate to this point. We won’t hesitate to close down any clubs in Sumter County if they get Graham near this point again.” Osteen That’s called proactive law enforcement for the good of the entire community. When The Sumter Item hears from citizens/readers about “bad news” on the front page — and there has been a lot of crime news in the past two weeks, including the Club Miami saga — I challenge them to take the long view. Our local law enforcement officers in the city and county do a great job dealing with a small subset of citizens. These people are the same in every community in America. They are mostly poor, uneducated, addicted and — sadly — end up in jail for a reason. That’s the reality cops deal with every day. Taking the long view also involves seeing community journalism for what it is — a responsibility to report the good and the bad, and to hold up a mirror on the communities we serve. We cover economic development, city and county councils, the school system, sports, weddings, births, obituaries, health care, corruption, military affairs, crime, garden clubs and everything in between. That’s the reality of life in Sumter, S.C., and The Sumter Item has been doing it for 120 years. Sumter County resident Calvin Bennett was quoted in our Friday story on Club Miami’s closure: “Even though the club is down, we still got problems with violence in the community. Now is the time to really get to work and for the community leaders and community groups to work together to try to solve this problem.” Based on our reporting, Sumter’s law enforcement professionals are doing their jobs very well. Maybe it’s the rest of us who should do more to make their jobs easier. That means constantly improving education, creating jobs and opportunities, and dealing with the complexities of poverty, addiction and hopelessness that pervade the lives of the least among us. That’s the real challenge for all community leaders in America.

Y

ou can name any subject of concern, any issue, and before you know it an organization is formed to focus public attention on it. They’re everywhere. Under every bush there is a special interest group marching here, protesting there, grinding axes, writing letters, buttonholing legislators and congressmen, marshaling public support, cajoling, pleading, persuading and agitating. It’s the American way. It says so right in the First Amendment to the Constitution that people have the right to peaceably assemble and petition the government for a reHubert D. dress of grievOsteen Jr. ances. But some of these assemblies aren’t so peaceable and the grievances brought forth by so-called “movements” often exceed the bounds of reason. We used to call participants in such undertakings the lunatic fringe, but nowadays our permissive society is not quite so judgmental. We try to be open and understanding, and make concessions to these groups’ “right” to defend their viewpoint. But some groups’ philosophies, motives and behavior defy reason, and cause one to wonder just when enough will be enough. Take the movement that marches under the banner of “animal rights.” Its foremost organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) assigns equal moral status to all creatures based on their common ability to feel pain. It is especially opposed to animal experimentation in medical research, the type of research that led to vaccines for polio, to the development of insulin, to modern heart surgery,

COMMENTARY

to organ transplantation, to chemotherapy and the development of antibiotics. In PETA’s absolutist view, all that research was immoral. No one with any sensitivity supports cruelty to animals, but when the co-director of PETA tells the Washington Post in an interview that “Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in a slaughterhouse,” you’re going to lose me. That gives me visions of placard-carrying chickens picketing the Campbell Soup plant to protest their inclusion in the Le Menu line. Such logic led to the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) — a militant clandestine group closely allied with PETA — staging a raid last 4th of July on the laboratory at Texas Tech University of world-renowned sleep researcher Dr. John Orem, smashing equipment, spray-painting walls and “liberating” five cats. That halted Orem’s research, using cats, into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the leading killer of babies in the first year of life. Federal inspectors, incidentally, had consistently found Orem’s lab to be exemplary in its practices and treatment of the cats. Over the past 10 years, according to Katie McCabe in a compelling article in The Washingtonian magazine, raids such as the one on Orem’s lab have caused $10 million in damage, delaying and in some cases halting research on crib death, infant blindness, cancer, AIDS, and a host of other diseases. What these wooly-heads are pushing is a sentimental, even utopian vision of lower animals being indistinguishable from humans, in spite of the differences between animals and people, such as language, reason, moral awareness and free will. This is all regarded as ethically irrelevant. I doubt if the animal population is going to be substantially depleted because of research done on a small percentage of

On a final, positive note, Happy Birthday today to my daughter, Duvall; and on Tuesday, April 1 to my niece, Wells “Aunt Eller” Osteen. You both continue to make us all very proud, and we appreciate that you’re not frequenting nightclubs with shady characters, drawing the attention of law enforcement officials. Please stay that way.

iting the voice of conservatives. They print numerous letters critical of Gov. Haley, but rarely a positive one, including this letter they refused to print: Recently, many letters to the editor have criticized Gov. Haley for not wanting to expand medicaid, saying it would be a win-win situation. In reality, it would be much like an adjustable rate mortgage where you get a low ‘sucker’ rate for a few years and then the rate increases substantially for the duration of the loan. In the state’s case however, the duration would likely be forever, and the federal enticement money stops in just a few years. As for Gov. Haley’s policy of not welcoming unionized companies to the state, this is the reason we are seeing such economic growth under her leadership. Companies do not want to locate in unionfriendly states. Our unemployment rate is now below the national average. Thank you, Gov. Haley. ROBERT W. WILDER Sumter

them. Great medical breakthroughs have occurred because of animal research. It all comes down to choice: Is it more important to alleviate the suffering of lab rats or of humans? You can bet scientists’ choices swing toward the latter, but because of the increasing militancy of the animal rights’ firebrands, aided and abetted by Hollywood celebrities and sympathetic philanthropists, such choices are being made in favor of animals. And now there are even more problems. New federal regulations, most of which passed without benefit of hearings or legislative debate, could add as much as $2 billion to the cost of experimenting on animals — more than this year’s entire federal budget for research on AIDS, Alzheimer’s and heart disease combined, according to McCabe in The Washingtonian. Since the animal righters are having their way with the celebrities and Congress, we can anticipate the next movement: insect rights. Who’s to say it isn’t cruel and unusual punishment to set up those bug zappers in the summer that attract mosquitoes and other flying insects, then electrocute them? Surely insects have feelings, too. Why shouldn’t mosquitoes have a right to enjoy the blood of humans? And why can’t deer flies congregate on someone’s head if they want to? Let’s be fair. If animals are getting all this attention, why are insects relegated to secondclass citizenry? Sure, monkeys are cute, but how many of us can say we’ve gotten up close and personal with horse flies? Have we really tried to understand them and what makes them tick? The next time you start to swat a gnat, think about the implications of your violent act. Live and let live. After all, if the animal-rightists had succeeded in stopping researchers from testing polio vaccine on monkeys, think of all those highly-improved iron lungs American ingenuity could have produced.

In response to the letter written by Sally Roth regarding the parking at the library, I have even seen a police car parked there. I can tell you that person was not “reading” books at the library. As if so, that person was in the wrong place, he should have been at the courthouse. Please adhere to the signs, and do not park in the library lot if you are not using the library. Thank you.

‘Thank you’ to the folks of Alice Drive Elementary

with Lilli Kalie’s position on the matter published on March 28. Repealing the “stand your ground law” is foolish. Committee chairman Rep. Harold Mitchells says that “the government should not tell people to confront force with force, rather than just walk away.” The bill would limit the ability to use deadly force against someone illegally and forcibly entering a home, business or occupied vehicle. Walk away? In other words, hardworking, tax-paying citizens will have no rights to defend themselves, their homes and their families. If you think of the number of home invasions, armed robberies, and violent crimes are high now, imagine what repealing the “stand your ground law” will do. Mr. Mitchell needs to wake up and take a look at the world that we live in. Repealing this bill will only produce and encourage more criminal activity. I refuse to surrender to anyone that invades my home and poses threat to my life, the life of my family or my “castle”. Mr. Mitchell can do whatever he wants to, but I will continue to defend what is rightfully mine. SGT. RACHEL SKIDMORE United States Air Force Stuttgart, Germany Permanent resident of Sumter

Refrain from getting dragged into someone else’s business or an authoritative situation. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Follow your dreams even if someone tries to get you to do otherwise. False information is likely to be used to change your mind or to lead you astray. Believe in your abilities and make changes that suit you. Love is highlighted.

Thompson leads Carolina QB group thin on experience BY PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press

Talented & unbeaten, Barons golf squad looks for perfect ending in ’14 BY MICHAEL CHRISTOPHER mchristopher@theitem.com Wilson Hall head boys golf coach Randy Pitts admits there are times when he feels like nothing more than a chaperone. And who can blame him? The Barons, now 14-0 on the season, have won their first two region matches by 20 strokes or more. The team, which has no seniors and has its core intact from last year, is compiled of four juniors, three sophomores, a freshman and an eighth-grader. “These kids are so good and so well-coached,” Pitts said. “They all have a swing coach or go to places and get coached so they all have some sort of professional coaching. “I’m not much more than an overseer to make sure they stay out of trouble,” Pitts said. “These kids are that good.” Wilson Hall went 28-3-1 last year and finished fourth in the SCISA 3A state tournament after winning the Region II title. Expectations are obviously high this season and the team feels it is one of three major contenders for a state title. “I think even before the

COLUMBIA — Steve Spurrier’s very comfortable with Dylan Thompson sliding into the spot left by South Carolina’s all-time wins leader in quarterback Connor Shaw. After that? “Well, we’ll have to keep Dylan healthy,’’ Spurrier said Saturday. It’s not that Spurrier’s frustrated or upset with his backups. He just understands talented and highly recruited reserves like Brendan Nosovitch and Connor Mitch haven’t had time to shine with Shaw’s success the past four seasons. Shaw led the Gamecocks to three straight 11-win seasons and left with a record of 27-5 overall as starter, 17-0 at home. Thompson is a redshirt senior who’s filled in the last two years when Shaw was injured. Thompson attained folk-hero status among Gamecocks fans in 2012, leading South Carolina to a 27-17 victory at rival Clemson when Shaw was out. Then Thompson stepped in during the team’s

Outback Bowl win over Michigan — the one best remembered for Jadeveon Clowney’s helmetpopping hit — to throw the winning touchdown pass to Bruce Ellington when Shaw was reinjured late. Thompson didn’t get much face time last year. His biggest moment came at UCF last September when he threw for 261 yards and ran for a touchdown as the Gamecocks rallied to beat the Knights 28-25. Thompson thrown for 1,827 yards with 14 touchdowns and five interceptions during his career. He’s also served as one of the team’s leaders in the locker room, defusing what could’ve been a quarterback controversy after the 2012 season by stating he was proud to serve behind Shaw despite the calls by some fans that Thompson’s downfield style was what the team needed instead of Shaw’s read-option, running game. “I’ve waited and now I’m ready,’’ Thompson says. He showed that in South Carolina’s first scrimmage of

Gamecocks, UNC ready for rematch BY JANIE MCCAULEY The Associated Press STANFORD, Calif. — Just three months ago, North Carolina handed South Carolina its first loss of the season with an 8-point win on a neutral court in Myrtle Beach. The stage is far bigger now as they gear up to face off again, both teams just two wins away from a trip to the Final Four. South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley, who led her team (29-4) to the first top seed in program history, sees little benefit in studying tape from that December meeting in preparations for tonight’s rematch at the NCAA tournament Stanford Regional semifinals. “We took a peek at it.

chance to travel to Nashville, Tenn., if North Carolina can reach the Final Four for the first time since 2007. North Carolina also knows this will be a far different matchup. “It was a very exciting game, we were happy to end up on top in that game,’’ North Carolina associate head coach Andrew Calder said. “I think both teams have changed since then ... and South Carolina is a much-improved team. They have changed their identity. They’re making more of an emphasis to play inside-outside basketball.’’ Here are five things to watch for in tonight’s game:

USC baseball gets pair of walk-off wins COLUMBIA — Grayson Greiner’s walk-off grand slam capped a 6-run bottom of the ninth inning as second-ranked South Carolina rallied from three runs down with two outs and no runners on base to defeat 22nd-ranked Tennessee 9-6 for a second consecutive walk-off win on the afternoon. Jordan Gore’s solo homer in the bottom of the 14th — his first as a Gamecock — lifted South Carolina to a 3-2 walk-off win earlier in they day in the resumption of game one of the series between the Gamecocks GREINER and Volunteers. The Gamecocks are 23-3 and 5-3 in the SEC with the Volunteers now 19-6 and 3-5 in league play. Trailing 6-3 and down to its final at-bat the Gamecocks made their final rally push as pinch hitter Brison Celek kept the inning alive with a base hit to center field. The rally then continued with Max Schrock as the sophomore drove a 1-1 pitch to right field from reliever Josh Peterson just fair of the foul pole in right field for a home run cutting the deficit to one run. After the Volunteers made a change to left-hander Drake Owenby, the Gamecocks stayed alive as a fly ball off the bat of Joey Pankake was mishandled by right fielder Scott Price putting the tying run on second base. Kyle Martin drew a walk and Connor Bright was hit on a 2-2 pitch from Owenby to load the bases and set the stage for Greiner. Tennessee would make one more change as right-hander Peter Lenstrom entered from the bullpen. On a 1-0 pitch, Greiner belted the game-winning homer to left field setting off a frenzy in Carolina Stadium. It was Greiner’s fourth home run of the season. South Carolina freshman righthander Reed Scott (1-0) earned the win in relief with six innings of scoreless relief to keep Carolina in the game. He allowed just four hits and two walks while striking out three batters. South Carolina had 11 hits to Tennessee’s eight. Greiner went 3-for-5 with five RBI with Pankake and Martin both with two hits. Pankake owns a 14-game hitting streak. Johnny Youngblood was 3-for-4 for Tennessee with Taylor Smart adding two hits and two runs scored. In the opener Jack Wynkoop (5-1) won in his first relief stint with three innings of scoreless relief. The game began on Friday evening and was halted before the top of the 12th due to rain in Columbia and resumed Saturday afternoon. TIGERS, TERRAPINS RESUME TODAY

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Due to rain and a soaked playing surface at Bob Smith Stadium, the series

finale between No. 20 Clemson and No. 25 Maryland on Saturday was halted. There is no score in the top of the second inning. Clemson has runners on first and second with no outs and Shane Kennedy at the plate with a 1-0 count. The two teams will attempt to resume and finish today at noon. BOWDITCH LEADS TEXAS OPEN

SAN ANTONIO — Steven Bowditch opened a 3-stroke lead Saturday in the Texas Open, while Phil Mickelson withdrew after 10 holes because of a pulled muscle in his right side. Bowditch shot a 4-under 68 to reach 12 under at TPC San Antonio. Matt Kuchar and Andrew Loupe were tied for second. Kuchar shot 65, and Loupe had a 70. Mickelson withdrew after pulling the muscle teeing off on No. 1 — his 10th hole of the round. He hopes to play next week in the Houston Open, the last event before the Masters. TROUT, ANGELS THRILLED WITH CONTRACT

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Mike Trout gave a big wave when he bounded onto the stage at the Los Angeles Angels’ fan fiesta Saturday, a plaid dress shirt tucked underneath his red No. 27 jersey. The crowd responded with wild cheers and “MV-P!’’ chants for the best young player in baseball. Trout is beloved at the Big A, and now he can stay under that comfortable halo for at least another seven years. The 22-year-old center fielder formalized his new six-year, $144.5 million deal shortly before the Angels’ final exhibition game, committing to the club through 2020.

MEN’S NCAA TOURNAMENT ROUNDUP

Florida, Wisconsin punch tickets to Final Four MEMPHIS, Tenn. — First yet again this season, the Florida Gators want more. Much more. Try a national championship. Scottie Wilbekin scored 23 points and Florida became the first team to advance to the Final Four with a 62-52 win Saturday night over the 11th-seeded Dayton Flyers in the South Region final. The Gators reached their fifth Final Four after losing at this point in each of the past three NCAA tournaments. This time, they came in as the country’s topranked team and the overall No. 1 seed. Florida won its 30th straight game and improved to 36-2, topping the 35 wins by the 2007 national championship squad. “I couldn’t be prouder and happier,’’ Florida head coach Billy Donovan said after being drenched with water in the Gators’ locker room. “In a lot of ways, outside the Michigan game, we were close to being in three out of four Final Fours right now, and that says a lot about these guys. But I think those experiences maybe helped us be a better team this year than maybe we would have if we’d have gotten to a couple

of ones earlier.’’ Patric Young scored 12 points, and Michael Frazier II added 10 for Florida. The Gators will play either UConn or Michigan State in Arlington, Texas, in the national semifinal. The celebration was a bit muted because a regional title isn’t the Gators’ end goal. “There’s more hunger within us, within this whole team to keep going,’’ Young said. Dyshawn Pierre led the Flyers with 18 points, including the final 11 for Dayton (26-11). Devin Oliver added 12 points.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Wisconsin bumped and grinded its way into the Final Four.

Frank Kaminsky had 28 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin, rallying the Badgers to a 64-63 overtime victory against Arizona in the West Region final Saturday night. The Badgers (30-7) advanced to their first Final Four appearance since 2000 on Saturday night, and first for 69-year-old coach Bo Ryan, who earned his 704th career victory. Nick Johnson had the ball with a chance to win, but he missed a shot that came just after the buzzer for Arizona (33-5), the top-seeded team that has yet to win a West Region final in Anaheim in four tries. Johnson led the Wildcats with 16 points, and Aaron Gordon had 18 rebounds in the relentlessly physical game. From wire reports

Kentucky took hard way to reach Elite Eight BY EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — If the crew of growing-on-the-job freshmen at Kentucky find themselves in Dallas next week, nobody can tell them they didn’t take the toughest path possible. Their journey through the ups-and-downs of college basketball has been rough. And their road to the Final Four this year has looked, well, very much like the actual Final Four last year. Last week, the eighth-seeded Wildcats (27-10) knocked off previously undefeated Wichita State. On Friday, they took down defending national champion Louisville. Next up today, it’s Michigan. Yes, that’s three of last year’s Final Four teams in the span of eight days — all for a team that, according to coach John Calipari, is only starting to play this game the way it was meant to be played. “The only thing I can tell you is, we just keep moving on,’’ Calipari said. “The best thing about this for me as a coach is, I’ve continued to coach like it’s midseason.’’ In an attempt to get some positive response from his team, Calipari actually lengthened practices and made them more physical the last three or four weeks. He’s been doing some tweaking with strategy — and will need to do more with the likely absence of 7-foot center Willie Cauley-Stein with a left ankle injury.

BY HANK KURZ JR. The Associated Press MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Jimmie Johnson doesn’t dwell on the negatives when he thinks about himself or his Hendrick Motorsports team when it comes to Martinsville Speedway, and that’s more than understandable. He has won eight times at the track in 24 career starts. The first of them, however, was hardly a day for celebration. It was Oct. 24, 2004, the day a plane carrying 10 members of the Hendrick Motorsports family on their way to the race crashed in fog-shrouded mountains a few miles from the speedway. No one survived and so when Johnson prepares to return to NASCAR’s smallest track, his thoughts drift in many directions. “Like today,’’ he said. “I flew up. It’s overcast. It’s cloudy. The whole week leading into Martinsville, I’ve been excited about coming here to race and feel like we have a great chance to win. I wake up this morning

four cars to pit lane. We get to pit lane, and there are police officers standing around our cars, and I’m like `What in the world has happened?’ Normally there are NASCAR Officials, not police officers. “I walk through that from time to time. I hope to never ever go through anything like that again.’’ Thankfully for Johnson and the Hendrick organization, there are also many great memories of the 0.526-

mile oval. Johnson has added seven more victories on the track, teammate Jeff Gordon also has won eight times and Geoff Bodine gave the fledgling team its first victory on the paper clip 30 years ago. It all makes the oldest track in NASCAR’s top series an emotional stop no matter what. Hendrick’s teams have won 20 more Sprint Cup races at Martinsville since Bodine got the first one.

Chevrolet has not heard from Earnhardt about swap BY JENNA FRYER The Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Chevrolet has not received an official request from Dale Earnhardt Jr. to swap race cars with Honda driver Graham Rahal. Earnhardt and Rahal are both sponsored this year by Army National Guard, and Rahal reached out to Earnhardt last week via Twitter to see if NASCAR’s most popular driver was in-

terested in swapping cars. The Twitter conversation sparked tons of fan interest, and the guard said it wanted to be part of a swap. But Earnhardt quickly quieted the talk two days later when he EARNHARDT said he could not drive a Honda. Chevrolet and Honda are direct competitors in the IndyCar Series.

Jim Campbell, the U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports for Chevy, said Saturday the manufacturer would consider any proposal to drive an Indy car from Earnhardt but until then, any talk about a manufacture conflict is premature. “If we get a proposal, we’ll take a look at it and we’ll look at it with an open set of eyes. The rest is hypothetical,’’ Campbell told The Associated Press.

PRO BASEBALL: BRAVES SEASON PREVIEW

After rough spring, Braves ready to defend NL East BY PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

for from the Braves this season:

ATLANTA — For the Atlanta Braves, spring training turned into a matter of survival. No wonder they’re so eager to get the season going. The defending NL East champions lost a big chunk of their starting rotation down in Florida: projected opening day starter Kris Medlen and fellow right-hander Brandon Beachy both underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time and are out for the season. Another starter, Mike Minor, will also begin the year on the disabled list as he recovers from a sore shoulder. On Saturday, they announced reliever Cory Gearrin could face season-ending surgery with elbow ligament damage. But the Braves are nothing if not resourceful. They quickly signed Ervin Santana to a $14.1 million, one-year contract and have every intention of getting back to the

playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years. “We still have a great team,” closer Craig Kimbrel said. “It’s tough losing two top pitchers. But getting Santana was really big. I want to be closing out division titles and championships and World Series. I think we’ve still got the group to do it.” The Braves will have a different look behind the plate after longtime catcher Brian McCann signed with the New York Yankees. But another title in a lackluster division is certainly a possibility, especially if second baseman Dan Uggla and center fielder B.J. Upton bounce back from dismal seasons in which both hit under .200. They showed signs of turning things around in spring training. Here are five things to look

With Medlen and Beachy out, keep a close eye on Minor. The left-hander underwent urinary tract surgery on Dec. 31, tried to do too much too soon when he got to Florida, and wound up with a sore shoulder. A 13-game winner last season, Minor did not pitch at all during spring training. If he gets back to form, the Braves should still have a respectable rotation when the lefty joins Santana, 14-game winner Julio Teheran, promising youngster Alex Wood and possibly another late signee, Aaron Harang.

COMEBACK KIDS If patching together the rotation is the No. 1 priority, then 1-A is getting Upton and Uggla back on track. After signing a $75.25 million contract, Upton was one of the biggest free-agent busts in baseball history, hitting a career-worst .184 with nine

spring practice. He was 7-of-7 passing for 61 yards on his only series that ended in Brandon Wilds’ 5-yard touchdown run. Six of Thompson’s throws went for first-down yardage and he looked in total control during the sequence. “Dylan was sharp,’’ Spurrier said. “Dylan knows what he’s doing. He knows where everybody is. It’s good to see him dump off to the backs underneath. He has a good awareness of where all the players are and how much time he’s got. That’s what good quarterbacks have.’’ Thompson says his improvement this spring comes from Spurrier’s support. The coach, known for his short leash with quarterbacks who don’t get the job done, stated flatly this offseason that Thompson had earned the starting job instead of keeping his senior quarterback on pins and needles during the summer. “A lot of times there’s some uncertainty,’’ Thompson said. “Last year going in, I didn’t really know my role and how much I was going to get to play. I know I have controls essentially of the offense,’’ Thompson said. Spurrier’s given Thompson the freedom to check out of plays this spring if he’s sees an odd coverage or a better option. Thompson’s worked hard the first half of spring sessions to get as many reps as possible before the season opens August 28th at home against Texas A&M. “I’m not going to be right every time, but that’s why we’re out here,’’ Thompson said. Those behind Thompson have plenty more ground to cover and time to improve before this season. Spurrier chose sophomore walk-on Perry Orth as his team’s No. 2 quarterback after the scrimmage, ahead of scholarship passers Nosovitch and Mitch. Orth completed six of 13 passes for 89 yards with an interception. He also caught a tipped ball in the end zone for a touchdown on a pass from receiver Pharoh Cooper for South Carolina’s final touchdown. Mitch completed 5 of 8 for 95 yards while Nosovitch threw a pair of interceptions during his time. Thompson is positive that those quarterbacks listed behind him will put in the work to make sure they’re ready if needed next fall. He says he’ll make sure of that. He already spends extra time working with the offense, developing connections with pass catchers and fine tuning an offense that was 33-6 since 2011. Thompson’s a little nervous about getting the keys to the car. “The good thing is I feel like I’m getting a Ferrari instead of Volkswagen,’’ he said, smiling. And Thompson believes he can keep things heading down the winning road.

season started within our couple of meetings, these kids set their expectations on the state championship,” Pitts said. “We’ve had several non-region matches, but we’ve had success against those schools too.” The team plays six golfers and the lowest four scores over nine holes counts toward the team score. Currently, the Barons’ average score is 153 with its individual average about 39. “We have some of the best players in the state and I found that surprising because most of the good teams are down on the coast like Hilton Head and Pinewood,” junior Raines Waggett said. “But we’re in the middle of the state, (where) not a whole lot of golf courses are and we have one of the best teams.” While it may be young, Wilson Hall doesn’t lack experience. Sophomore Christian Salzer (36.3) and junior Grier Schwartz (38.5) lead the Barons in scoring average. The remaining four are all interchangeable with their scoring average. They are Waggett (40.5), eighthgrader Walker Jones (40.2), freshman Easton Ward (40) and sophomore Coker Lowder (40.8). Juniors Thomas McGinnis, Dexter Buschor and Robert Young also contribute. “We challenge each other and pick on each other if

homers and 26 RBI. By the playoffs, he was just a very expensive backup. But Upton is only 29 and the Braves have invested too much money to give up on him. Uggla, making $13 million a year, batted .179 with 171 strikeouts before being left off the postseason roster altogether.

REPLACING MCCANN It will seem strange not having McCann behind the plate. A hometown favorite, he held down the catcher’s job for nearly a decade. McCann will be replaced by last year’s rookie surprise, Evan Gattis, who had 21 homers and 65 RBI filling a variety of roles. The Braves have some insurance if Gattis falters — Gerald Laird and newcomer Ryan Doumit, acquired in a trade from Minnesota.

HEYWARD LEADS OFF An appendectomy cost right fielder Jason Heyward nearly four weeks early in the season, and he was out a month after getting struck in the face with a pitch in August. He

posted good numbers after moving into the leadoff role, and that’s where he’ll stay this season. While only 24, it’s time for Heyward to put up the sort of production that was expected from him after his splashy debut in 2010. His best season was two years ago, when he batted .269 with 27 homers and 82 RBI. He seems capable of much more.

BUILDING THE PEN The Braves have one of the best closers in baseball with Kimbrel, who had 50 saves and a 1.21 ERA. Beyond the hard-throwing right-hander, there are plenty of question marks. Dave Carpenter (4-1, 1.78) did a surprisingly good job taking over as the main setup man in 2013 — until he got to the playoffs, where he surrendered a series-losing homer to the Dodgers. It will be interesting to see how Carpenter responds to that setback. Eric O’Flaherty departed as a free agent, and Jonny Venters is still recovering from his second Tommy John surgery.

Wilson Hall junior Grier Schwartz is second on the team with a 38.5 scoring average as the Barons boast six players with a scoring average of 41 or better. you’re the low man or didn’t play well,” Salzer said. “That kind of drives us and motivates us too. I think we learned a lot from last year and we’re getting older, and for sure getting better.” Pitts agreed with Salzer and said he’s got six kids who can go out on any given day and shoot par. “They always want to outdo each other so they have a team drive to beat

each other,” he said. “They’re really dedicated and constantly try to go as low as they can and play as well as they can. I think their maturity level has helped their averages.” The maturation of players both physically and in how to approach the game has helped the team as well. “This year I learned a lot more how to score and I’ve gotten a lot bigger so I hit

the ball further and I just learned how to score better,” Jones said. “We have a lot more depth so we don’t have as much pressure on ourselves; and we’re all used to the atmosphere of playing in tournaments.” Another reason Pitts said he feels like he doesn’t have to do much is because the kids play golf year round and most are dedicated to the sport solely.

in the Carolinas. Gamecocks forward Aleighsa Welch used to play against Tar Heels guard N’Dea Bryant, and promised there would be some friendly back and forth. “It’s a battle of Carolinas,’’ South Carolina guard Tiffany Mitchell said. “It’s kind of like a bragging thing at the end of the day. We want to be on top. Energy’s going to be high, attitude, spirit’s going to be high. We’re going to try to calm down.’’

TRAVEL DIFFERENCES While North Carolina traveled cross country, South Carolina stayed out West after winning two games in Seattle. So, only one team is likely to be road weary despite playing so far from home. “I think our players have been acclimated to Pacific time,’’ Staley said.

SHOOTING STREAKS Staley doesn’t care about the stats from the first meeting, when her Gamecocks shot 1 for 11 from 3-point range. She’ll settle for her post players being steady in the paint and finishing their chances. “Defensively, we need to guard the 3,’’ Staley said. “We’re not a 3-point shooting team. If we can be efficient out there it will help our ballclub. Most important is our post players being 15 for 23.’’ North Carolina freshman guard Diamond DeShields is averaging 18.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists. “At this stage of the game we have to pull out all the stops,’’ Staley said.

PLAYING FOR THEIR COACH If the Tar Heels can win two more games and get to Nashville, Tenn., they will likely be reunited with Hatchell for a feel-good Final Four. The doctors treating Hatchell for leukemia have said clearing her travel for the Final Four is “very doable.’’ First things first, of course. Though her cancer is in remission and Hatchell’s last round of chemotherapy completed earlier this month, she would serve in a support role if her team keeps winning with Calder still handling coaching duties. Hatchell and Calder had already talked about Sunday’s game plan. “For her not to be their head coach this year was difficult,’’ Calder said. “They’re working extremely hard for themselves but for her also.’’

BE THE CHANGE Over the course of South Carolina’s season, the theme has been “Be the Change,’’ with the challenge of helping others by completing 50,000 random acts of kindness. Players wear T-shirts honoring the mantra. It stemmed from Staley’s inspiration following a “lifechanging’’ trip to Africa last summer with the Clinton Foundation — and has transferred to a close relationship of her players on and off the court. “It starts off the court in how we connect,’’ Welch said. “It shows on the court. We have great team chemistry.’’

WOMEN’S NCAA TOURNAMENT ROUNDUP

Unbeaten Huskies turn away BYU 70-51 LINCOLN, Neb. — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 19 points to lead four Connecticut players in double figures, and the defending national champion Huskies shook off BYU early in the second half to win 70-51 in the NCAA women’s regional semifinals Saturday. The Huskies (37-0), winners of 43 straight, need a win over Texas A&M Monday to reach the Final Four for the seventh straight year. UConn season scoring leaders Breanna Stewart and Bria Hartley overcame slow starts, with Stewart having 12 of her 16 in the second half and Hartley all 12 of hers after halftime. Moriah Jefferson had 11 for UConn. Kim Beeston led the Cougars (28-7) with 16 points, and Morgan Bailey added 14. (3) TEXAS A&M 84 (7) DEPAUL 65

LINCOLN, Neb. — Courtney Walker scored 25 points, and Texas A&M beat DePaul 84-65 to advance to the regional finals.

The Aggies (27-8) led by 14 points at halftime and turned back two DePaul runs to move to a Monday night game against defending national champion Connecticut. Courtney Williams had 14 of her 15 points in the second half for Texas A&M. DePaul (29-7) shot 40 percent, 28 percent in the first half, and struggled defensively against the physical Aggies. Jasmine Penny had 16 of her 24 points in the second half and Megan Rogowski added 14 points for the Blue Demons. NOTRE DAME REGIONAL NOTRE DAME 89 OKLAHOMA STATE 72 SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Natalie Achonwa got Notre Dame going early and never let up as she finished with 23 points and Jewell Loyd added 20 to lead the Fighting Irish to a victory over Oklahoma State. Notre Dame (35-0) is a victory away from its fourth straight Final Four berth, while the Cowgirls (25-9) missed a chance to advance to a regional final for the first time in school history.

To get to the Final Four, the Irish will have to beat Baylor, the last team to knock off Notre Dame at home. The Irish jumped to a 14-0 lead in the opening 3:31, capped by a three-point play by Achonwa, as the Cowgirls missed their first six shots. The Cowgirls later used a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 2414, but that was as close as they got. BAYLOR 90 KENTUCKY 72

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Odyssey Sims scored 25 points, including her 1,000th this season, to lead No. 2 seed Baylor to a rout of third-seeded Kentucky. Sims became only the second player to reach that milestone in a single season. She is 41 points behind Jackie Stiles’ record of 1,062 for one year set in 2001. Now the Lady Bears (32-4) will face Notre Dame in the regional final on Monday night. DeNesha Stallworth scored 19 points to lead Kentucky (269). From wire reports

or the eighth consecutive year, the Sankofa Connection’s cultural festival encourages participants to “remember the past to build the future,” the literal meaning of the Akon word “sankofa.” The mission statement of the organization is to “promote cultural awareness and stimulate historical learning.” The festival will be held from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday on the grounds of Mt. Pisgah AME Church, at Bartlette and Washington streets. “This is a festival of entertainment, education and networking,” said Sankofa Connection founder and director Natalie Williams. “We want people to network with each other, so we can know and learn from each other to benefit our community.” The morning portion of the festival is devoted to a ceremony honoring the past. Williams will explain the meaning of sankofa and its purpose and introduce the procession of the African queens. “They are different from the queens we’ve had in the past,” she said. “I think a lot of people don’t know how important the African queens were.” As each queen is introduced, Wil-

They include: Queen Tiye, wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and mother of Pharaoh Akhenaten. She was also the mother-in-law of Cleopatra. “She was quite an educated, capable woman,” Williams said. “She had a library of papyrus scrolls of reli-

gious, historical and scientific texts. She had a lot of political clout, too.” Queen Nandi “was the mother of the great military leader Shaka,” king of the Zulus, and was known as the queen of the Zulus, Williams said, “and she is known for being hard working, patriotic and determined ... overcoming many obstacles.” Queen Hetepheres was of the bloodline of the 4th Dynasty and the mother of Khufu, who built the Great Pyramid. Queen Hatshepsut was a matriarch of ancient Egypt and the first woman in recorded history to challenge male dominance, Williams said. Queen Cleopatra, “contrary to popular belief, did not commit suicide

Besides love, another good reason for matrimony: Folks have fewer heart problems BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical Writer Love can sometimes break a heart but marriage seems to do it a lot of good. A study of more than 3.5 million Americans finds that married people are less likely than singles, divorced or widowed folks to suffer any type of heart or blood vessel problem. This was true at any age, for women as well as for men, and regardless of other heart disease risk factors they had such as high cholesterol or diabetes, researchers found. “It might be that if someone is married, they have a spouse who encourages them to take better care of themselves,” said Dr. Jeffrey Berger, a preventive cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. This is the largest look at marriage and heart health, said Dr. Carlos Alviar, a cardiology fellow who led the study with Berger. Previous studies mostly compared married to single people and lacked information on divorced and widowed ones. Or they just looked at heart attacks, whereas this one included a full range from clogged arteries and abdominal aneurysms to stroke risks and circulation problems in the legs. Researchers used health questionnaires that people filled out when they sought various types of tests in community settings around the country from an Ohio company, Life Line Screening Inc. Some of these screening tests, for various types of cancer and other diseases or conditions, are not recommended

by leading medical groups, but people can still get them and pay for them themselves. The study authors have no financial ties to the company and are not endorsing this type of screening, Berger said. Life Line gave its data to the Society of Vascular Surgery and New York University to help promote research. The results are from people who sought screening from 2003 through 2008. Their average age was 64, nearly twothirds were female and 80 percent were white. They gave information on smoking, diabetes, family history, obesity, exercise and other factors, and researchers had blood pressure and other health measures. The study found: • Married people had a 5 percent lower risk of any cardiovascular disease compared to single people. Widowed people had a 3 percent greater risk of it and divorced people, a 5 percent greater risk, compared to married folks. • Marriage seemed to do the most good for those under age 50; they had a 12 percent lower risk of heart-related disease than single people their age. • Smoking, a major heart risk, was highest among divorced people and lowest in widowed ones. Obesity was most common in those single and divorced. Widowed people had the highest rates of high blood pressure, diabetes and inadequate exercise. Researchers don’t know how long any study participants were married or how recently they were divorced or became widowed. But the results drive home the message that a person’s heart

risks can’t be judged by physical measures alone — social factors and stress also matter, said Dr. Vera Bittner, a cardiologist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She heads the heart disease prevention committee of the American College of Cardiology. The study results were released on Friday ahead of presentation this weekend at the group’s annual meeting in Washington. “We don’t really have a clear explanation” for why marriage may be protective, Bittner said. “You may be more willing to follow up with medical appointments,” take recommended drugs, diet and exercise if you have a spouse, she said.

Smartphone app helps alcoholics stay sober BY LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO — A smartphone app for recovering alcoholics that includes a panic button and sounds an alert when they get too close to taverns helped keep some on the wagon, researchers who developed the tool found. The sober app studied joins a host of others that serve as electronic shoulder angels, featuring a variety of options for trying to prevent alcoholics and drug addicts from relapsing. Adults released from inpatient alcoholism treatment centers who got free sober smartphones reported fewer drinking days and more overall abstinence than those who got the usual follow-up support. The results were based on patients’ self-reporting on whether they resumed drinking, a potential limitation. Still, addiction experts say the immediacy of smartphone-based help could make them a useful tool in fighting relapse. Mark Wiitala, 32, took part in the study and says the app helped save his life. He said the most helpful feature allowed him to connect to a network of peers who’d gone through the same recovery program. The app made them immediately accessible for an encouraging text or phone call when he needed an emotional boost. “It’s an absolutely amazing tool,” said Wiitala, of Middlesex County, Mass. He said he’s continued to use it even though the study ended. The study was published online Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry.

It involved 271 adults followed for a year after inpatient treatment for alcoholism at one of several U.S. centers in the Midwest and Northeast. They were randomly assigned to get a sober smartphone app for eight months plus usual follow-up treatment — typically referral to a self-help group — or usual followup alone. The app includes a feature asking periodic questions by text or voicemail about how patients are doing. If enough answers seem worrisome, the system automatically notifies a counselor who can then offer help. The panic button can be programmed to notify peers who are nearest to the patient when the button is pushed. It also offers links to relaxation techniques to calm the patient while waiting for help. “We’ve been told that makes a big difference,” said David Gustafson, the lead author and director of the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He’s among developers of the app, nicknamed ACHESS after the center. Gustafson said it is being commercially developed and is not yet available. Differences in abstinence from drinking between the two groups didn’t show up until late in the study. At eight months, 78 percent of the smartphone users reported no drinking within the previous 30 days, versus 67 percent of the other patients. At 12 months, those numbers increased slightly in the smartphone group and decreased slightly in the others.

Guidelines make visits fun for stressed-out new parents DEAR ABBY — We’re proud parents of a new baby girl. She’s adorable, and we feel lucky and blessed. Although having a new baby is an exciting, magical time, it is also very stressful. Sleep deprivation, difficulty with breast-feeding, plus endless visits and phone calls can wear any new parent thin. Also, if Mom had an episiotomy or C-section, she may be in pain. In addition -- or perhaps because of these things -- some women also struggle with postpartum depression. Friends and family don’t always realize everything new parents must cope with. I compared notes with other parents and came up with a short list of guidelines for

friends and family of new parents: 1. UNLESS YOU ARE IMMEDIATE FAMILY OR VERY CLOSE Dear Abby FRIENDS, ABIGAIL WAIT UNTIL VAN BUREN THE THIRD WEEK OR SO TO CALL. Keep in mind the first two weeks are often the toughest. If you would like the new parents to know you’re thinking of them, send a card. 2. LIMIT VISITS TO 20 OR 30 MINUTES. Unless you are staying to help with the housework, or know your presence is wanted longer

than this, keep your visit short. 3. IF YOU VISIT, BRING FOOD! A simple casserole or some takeout will be gratefully accepted by the exhausted parents. 4. WASH YOUR HANDS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE TOUCHING THE BABY. While it’s unlikely that you would unwittingly pass a cold or sore throat to the baby, seeing you wash your hands will make concerned new parents feel better. 5. LEAVE YOUR SMALL CHILDREN AT HOME. Even if you keep a close eye on your children, their high energy level can be too much for already stressed-out new parents. 6. BE SENSITIVE ABOUT

MOM’S NEED TO BREASTFEED. If Mom had a surgical birth, moving around can be an effort for her. If she needs to nurse, offer to leave the room. New Mom in San Diego DEAR NEW MOM — Congratulations on your new arrival. Your guidelines make sense, and I’m pleased to share them. However, as sensible as they may be, do not be surprised if most of your visitors don’t abide by them -- because if my mail is any indication, the majority will think they are the exception to the rule. DEAR ABBY — My husband drinks milk straight from the carton. He says it’s OK because he’s the only one in the

house who drinks milk. (True.) I have told him I find it disgusting and that company often drinks milk, having no idea that he drinks straight from the carton. Isn’t this unsanitary -- not to mention rude and selfish behavior? I’d love to know how to get him to stop. Grossed out in New Jersey DEAR GROSSED OUT — I’m sorry you are grossed out, but what your husband is doing isn’t a federal offense — particularly since he’s the only milkdrinker in the house. However, a solution to your problem might be to separate a portion of the milk into another container, so that it will be available for guests should the need arise.

David Lucas, shown with his wife Martha, will present a talk about his experiences as a star football player under Coach Marvin Bass at the University of South Carolina in the late 1960s. cock have now been documented in his recently published book, “The Championship.”

Lucas was a part of a winning team and has shared his experiences as a player with one of

the most successful football teams USC has ever put on the field. That team won the ACC Football Championship in 1969. Copies of “The Championship” will be available, and a book signing will follow his presentation. Football and sports are only a small part of the experiences in Lucas’ life that have combined in creating his unique persona. Quoting from the foreword of “The Championship” by Ernie Trubiano, longtime sportswriter for The State: “Lucas became an entrepreneur. He started in banking and moved on to real estate sales, building contractor, re-

sort developer, land planning, cell phone investor, Arabian horse breeder, activist, consultant, bluegrass musician, writer and movie producer.” All of that of course was after “His rollicking days as a crosscountry traveler to Alaska.” Lucas also has a deeply engrained love of history and will speak to the society relating to the history surrounding Tiller’s Ferry. He has some historical family accounts to share and some most interesting artifacts. He possibly will entertain those in attendance with some of his episodes as a Civil War Re-enactor.

The Lee County Historical Society is a nonprofit organization that does not discriminate in any way. Its membership is open to anyone with a love of history, and its meetings and speaker presentations are free to the public. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month from January through November at the S.C. Cotton Museum, 121 W. Cedar Lane, Bishopville.

Lt. Ervin Shaw and Sgt. Smith were buried in a British military cemetery No. 1913, Regina Trench, Courcelette Somme, France.

Ervin David Shaw makes his final flight

R

eflections concludes part three of our trilogy concerning Ervin Shaw, auto enthusiast, exceptional pilot and gallant young man for whom Shaw Air Force Base is named. This section includes letters describing the final events leading to the untimely death of Sumter’s first pilot casualty of World War I. The information and photos used in preparing this article were provided by Ervin Burns Shaw, The Sumter Herald newspaper and The Sumter Item archives, and includes excerpts from the writings of Blanche Floyd.

“Ervin Shaw stood close beside the small plane, studying intently the brief instructions. His young English observer, Sergeant Smith, was already seated in the cockpit. Lieutenant Shaw knew that the aircraft, a Bristol B1113, was ready for takeoff, but this was a moment he savored. He felt confident of his ability to carry out his mission, and he knew that his plane and equipment were the very best available. ... “Something in the young officer’s spirit responded to the challenge and adventure of the occasion, the excitement of the planned flight, and the hazards Sammy Way of the undertaking. He was REFLECTIONS about to make a reconnaissance flight over the German trenches. The date was July 9, 1918, a mere 15 years after the Wright Brothers’ first historic flight of 120 seconds at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903. ... “With a grin for his sergeant and a smart salute for the men on the ground, Lieutenant Shaw swung into his seat. He was ready to go. The British reconnaissance plane, carrying a pilot and an observer, had a range of about 200 miles. The flight plan called for observation over and beyond the German lines for a distance of 15 miles. The purpose of the mission was to accurately locate German troops, guns and equipment. The small aircraft were often attacked by enemy scout planes. The flight, fraught with danger, was considered a long-range mission. … .” (Floyd) Lieutenant Shaw did not return from his flight on July 9, 1918. The family received a telegram on Aug. 27, 1918, later published in The Daily Item, from Acting Adjutant General Harris: “DEEPLY REGRET TO INFORM YOU LIEUT E. D. SHAW AIR SERVICE PREVIOUSLY REPORTED MISSING IN ACTION JULY NINTH NOW REPORTED KILLED IN ACTION SAME DATE.”

Shaw (3rd from left) is photographed with several of his fellow pilots. Shaw’s remains are buried in grave 9, row 4, plot 9 British military cemetery shown below. He is the only American buried there. he knelt down by his cot and prayed. I loved him for that. In this time of sorrow know that you have given to the great cause for which our country is fighting, A TRUE MAN. Sincerely, Lt. Bryan M. Battey Several newspaper accounts noted that Shaw’s Bristol encountered three enemy scout planes; Shaw destroyed one of the planes before his craft suffered a direct hit in the fuel tank causing it to explode in mid-air killing Shaw and his gunman. Ervin Shaw and Sgt. Smith were buried in the British Cemetery in Courcelette, France; Shaw is the only American buried in this large national cemetery. “The death of Lt. Ervin David Shaw cut short what promised to be a brilliant career. He won exceptional praise from his usually reserved comrades, not only for bravery but also for a noble Christian character.” (Floyd)

Shaw is shown just before deThe following letter that appeared in the Sum- parting New ter Herald, Aug. 9, 1918, was written by 1st Lt. York in the Bryan Battey, one of Shaw’s closest friends: Spring of 1918. “The circumstances of his passing are not known to us here in any detail. It is known that, as he was coming back to the lines after a long reconnaissance, he was attacked by three German machines. Their fire must have cut some vital member of the machine’s framing, for it broke up in the air, according to a report from the air advanced battery positions. I, at the time, must have been quite close. I was flying below a great white cloud. Just a bit of a plane dropped through it and fluttered idly down. I did not know then, did not even guess, that one of our men was fighting alone above this cloud. ‘Molly’ was my best friend out here, and though I had known him but a little while, I was proud of the knowing. Always at night before he went to bed,

At a reunion in 1941, Shaw’s high school class initiated a campaign to have the new flying field and school being constructed near the city by the Army Air Corps named for Shaw. Their position for bestowing this honor was that Shaw was according to The Daily Item “the first man from Sumter to be killed in action during the Great War, and the only Sumter County aviator to die in combat.” Named “Shaw Field” on Aug. 7, 1941, in 1947, the flight school was renamed Shaw Air Force Base and continues to stand, according to The Daily Item, “as a proud tribute to a brave young man who fearlessly gave his life for his country.” Reach Item Archivist Sammy Way at waysammy@yahoo.com or (803) 774-1294.

We honor them because they wanted to ensure that we had a higher level of life, they wanted us to know God in his greatness, and they taught us discipline and will power. “If we do not honor our ancestors, we will violate memory and dishonor the dead and deprive the living of a rich and irreplaceable legacy.” The opening ceremonies also include Michelle Breaux singing what Williams refers to as “the Sankofa theme song, ‘The Presence of the

These streets were flooded hub-deep for an hour or more following the rain Thursday afternoon. • How would it suit those who object to heavy motor and truck traffic through the streets of Sumter for the highway department to build a bypass highway around the city?

Even though Samuel Oliver Plowden of Stateburg, who has hunted foxes for more than a half-century, is now 72, his mule “Rabbitt” is 30, a ripe old age for this particular species. • The Senate Armed Services Committee is expected to agree today to include in the military construction authorization bill funds which would virtually assure construction of a 90-bed permanent-type hospital at Shaw Air Force Base sometime during the coming fiscal year. This disclosure was made by Sen. Strom Thurmond today in a telegram to The Item. • Miss Sumter, Dianne Jackson, will represent the Gamecock City in the Watermelon Festival at Hampton. The 18year old beauty will ride in the annual Watermelon Parade in the afternoon on the City of Sumter float and will compete for the Miss Coastal Empire crown Saturday night. She is sponsored by the Sumter Jaycees. • Sumter’s Legion Juniors, still short of the League III championship by six wins after Hartsville upset them 7-6 in a startling sixth-inning surge yesterday, will try for a victory on their home field tonight against Camden. The site for tonight’s make-up of a Monday game rained out in the third inning has been switched with the regular game with Camden scheduled tomorrow, which will now be played there. • Courses in a field limited only by the imagination and initiative of the individual are now offered at the Sumter Area Technical Education Center, TEC officials announced recently. The field of electricity and electronics is one that is constantly growing and developing, surpassing the wildest dreams of years gone by. In their Industrial Electronics Curriculum they try to combine the many fac-

25 YEARS AGO — 1989 March 24-30 Plans for new nursing home construction of an 88-bed

home for the medically indigent near Summerton are expected to be announced at a press conference this afternoon by state officials. Rep. C. Alex Harvin III of Summerton said Thursday that federal and state funding for the $2 million facility has been approved and construction should begin by the middle of May. • A scholarship fund has been established at Furman High School in memory of a promising Furman student who drowned last summer in a tragic swimming accident. The Joseph Boozer Scholarship was announced this week by Friends of Furman Foundation, Inc., a non-profit corporation chartered for the purpose of providing private support for Furman High School. The scholarship, endowed by the Hubert D. Osteen Jr. family, will award financial assistance for continuing education to a deserving minority student selected annually by the foundation board of directors from nominations submitted by the Furman faculty. • Sixteen German exchange students arrived in South Carolina March 14 from Uffenheim, West Germany, for a three-week stay with Sumter County host families, six in District 2 and 10 in District 17. In June, 16 Sumter county students will visit Uffenheim to complete the exchange. • The 1988-89 basketball season was one that Furman High School basketball fans had been pointing toward for about three years or so. It would be the year when the talent-laden Indians would be

the senior-laden Indians with players such as James Watson and John Canty. Furman and head coach Calvin McRoy whetted its fans’ appetites last season when it reached the 2A Upper State finals before losing to eventual state champion Batesburg-Leesville. If there was to be a year for the Indians to bring the school its first state title, this was the year. The Indians did not disappoint, defeating Barnwell 75-55 in the championship game last week. • There is nothing fancy, and luxuries are nil, but the beds are warm and the food is hot. The Jubilee Samaritan Shelter offers those riding a wave of hard knocks in Sumter County an alternative to the street. • Sumter Area Technical College has been designated a site for the training of nursing assistants by the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). Under new legislation, all individuals now employed as nursing aides in South Carolina nursing homes that accept Medicaid funds will be required to be certified as nursing assistants. Individuals have the option of taking an 80-hour course followed by an examination upon completion of the training, or taking a competency test that is being developed by the Psychological Testing Center. • Shelby Bartley, a senior at Sumter High School, snagged top honors in USC-Sumter’s Sixth Annual Math-Science contest, securing for himself a $500 scholarship to USC-Sumter. A total of 75 students representing eight area high schools participated in the contest, according to Charles Denny, associate professor of biology and founder/coordinator of the Math-Science Contest. • Like many other county jails across the country, the Sumter jail is bursting at the seams. And like other counties, Sumter will have to decide which way it will go to correct the present overcrowded conditions and plan for future swelling of the jail population. Sumter Jail Administrator Jerry Hyatt met with county council’s Law Enforcement Committee and council Chairman Ruben Gray last week to suggest a plan of attack to alleviate overcrowding — a violation the S.C. Department of Corrections has cited for several years. • While state and federal lawmakers search for ways for Sumter School District 2 to make up an $800,000 deficit, district officials are looking for help closer to home. Superintendent Dr. Elijah McCants and District 2 trustees asked Sumter County Council Tuesday night for $745,000, or about 16 mills in additional property taxes, to help offset the more than $754,000 it lost when its percentage of students who live in Shaw Air Force Base housing dropped. • Construction of a $3.3 million ambulatory care center at the Tuomey Hospital is on schedule and was recently given a financial boost when the Duke Endowment awarded the hospital $225,000 to aid in the building project. The Duke Endowment also awarded Tuomey $19,000 for financial assistance in charity care provided by the hospital. Reach Item Archivist Sammy Way at waysammy@yahoo. com or (803) 774-1294.

RAYTEVIA EVANS / THE SUMTER ITEM

A small crew at Sumter Mold Service has been diligently working on preparing the company for full production in about two weeks. The company works in conjunction with Continental Tire the Americas and is looking to have about 15 people employed within the next year.

Sumter Mold Service preps for full production BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com (803) 774-1214 There’s a new mold in town. Or at least there soon will be. Employees at Sumter Mold Service are working to get the business ready for full production in about two weeks. The business is coming to Sumter primarily because of Continental Tire the Americas. General Manager Dan Wright said the business is currently storing molds for Continental Tire and also making some deliveries. When the business is all up and running, the crew will also do repairs. Wright and his small crew have been

making preparations and setting up machines for the company for about three months now. At the moment, they have seven employees setting up and planning, and they’ll be installing more machinery when it arrives on Monday. In the next year, Wright said the service hopes to have about 15 people employed, with plans to continue to grow along with Continental Tire in Sumter. “They’re here to stay, and so are we,” Wright said. “They didn’t just choose Sumter, but they’re here for the long haul.” Wright said so far he is impressed with the workforce in the Sumter area and the com-

pany, owned by Quality Mold, is looking for hand finishers. He has consulted with local temp companies and is looking for people who are looking for employment. When they’re fully up and running, Wright said they’ll be working with seven machines and they’ll need manual machine operators — people who are good with their hands. “An individual who wants to work, we’ll train,” Wright said. “We’re looking for fulltime and long-term employees. We are not seasonal, and we want to retain them for a long time.” King Machine recently brought 20 jobs to the Sumter area and is providing molding

services for Continental Tire, as well. Wright said he is aware of the company and knowing they’re here as well will “keep us sharp.” “I know of King Machine. I’ve heard about them, and I look forward to all of it because I’m sure there’s enough work to go around,” Wright said. Quality Mold Inc. has been around since 1976 and has operations in Akron, Ohio; Illinois; Alabama; and various other states throughout the country. Sumter Mold Service is located at 595 Jefferson Road. Wright said those interested in future employment can contact him via email at danw@MVMold.com.

New Tavern owner continues ‘calm, cozy’ atmosphere BY RAYTEVIA EVANS revans@theitem.com (803) 774-1214 After meeting up with friends for a quick drink after work at the Tavern on Main for the past five years, A.D. Woods decided to become the owner of a bar — and change the name to Main Street Tavern. Woods said original owner Matt Walters and his wife are planning to move, and Walters was considering selling and auctioning everything if he didn’t find someone interested in keeping the bar and continuing the simple but relaxing atmosphere it’s now known for. “It’s kind of a ‘Cheers’ kind of bar, where everyone knows you, and it’s comfortable,” Woods said. Woods has been in management for 20 years, and he said he always wanted to own a restaurant. He has a “day job” as a manager at Truck Supply Co., but Main Street Tavern is his new venture and where he still goes to relax and unwind after a day’s work. “This was a release for me, and I can come here and everyone is like family,” Woods said. “So (Walters and I) talked and came to an agreement about it.” The Main Street Tavern hasn’t seen any falloff in traffic since he took the

‘It’s kind of a ‘Cheers’ kind of bar, where everyone knows you, and it’s comfortable’ A.D. WOODS Owner of Main Street Tavern reins, Woods said, and that may be attributable to patrons’ knowing him because he has been one himself for five years. He said it may also be because he has no plans to make major changes to the tavern because Walters has been successful with it for the past seven years. However, customers will notice a few minor changes to the menu as Woods gets acclimated to owning a business — something he said he couldn’t ever remember wanting while growing up. Woods’ wife enjoys baking, and friends who have tried some of her creations have offered to buy them. So they may test out some new desserts in the future. Woods said they may also consider changing the hours

of the bar and opening a little earlier to serve lunch. These plans are still in the making and are far down the line, and for the most part, the business fondly referred to as “The Tavern,” will remain basically the same. “A lot of times, people are not always susceptible to change,” Woods said. “The Tavern is already calm and cozy and has a nice atmosphere. As for owning a bar, this is light and easy, and I just want to keep doing what was being done before.” Woods said they have received a lot of support, and he is excited about being a part of downtown Sumter and what’s soon to come in economical development for the area. Until they’re ready to make any of the small changes they’ve discussed, Woods and his wife are simply getting used to owning a bar, talking to “the regulars” and mastering things such as The Tavern’s spinach dip. “I’m a decent people person, and I like a fun, enjoyable atmosphere and cuttin’ fool like the next person, “ Woods said jokingly. “I’ve never owned a bar or mixed many drinks. But it’s not really just a bar to me. It’s a lot like home.” Walters declined to comment about the recent sale of the bar at the time of publication. Main Street Tavern is located at 24 N. Main St.

This frame grab from video provided by Taco Bell via Taylor Strategy shows Ronald McDonald of Oak Ridge, N.C., in a Taco Bell commercial. The fast-food chain will began airing ads Thursday that feature everyday men who happen to have the same name as the McDonald’s mascot. The men show their approval of the food with comments like, “It’s not messy” and “Mmm, wow” and “Mmm, real good” and “It has everything I like.” In case it wasn’t clear, tiny print at the end of the ad notes that, “These Ronald McDonalds are not affiliated with McDonald’s Corpora-

tion and were individually selected as paid endorsers of Taco Bell Breakfast.” “We like to do things with a wink and smile,” Niccol said. “We have a sense of humor.” As for Ronald McDonald the fast-food clown, the character was first played by Willard Scott in 1963. He was

initially depicted as a character that magically pulled hamburgers out of his belt. But the mascot eventually became a target of critics who say McDonald’s uses him to market to kids. A representative for McDonald’s Corp. did not respond to a request for comment.

Debuting in 1963, this clown is nothing to laugh it BY CANDICE CHOI, Associated Press Writer NEW YORK — Ronald McDonald evidently hasn’t lost his magic. Though Ronald has faded to the background in McDonald’s own advertising, Taco Bell’s appropriation of the name is a testament to the spokesclown’s lingering cultural power. Since his debut in 1963, the smiling clown has helped give McDonald’s a huge advantage among kids. The clown turns up in countless aspects of pop culture. In the FX TV show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the character known as Mac is mocked by his friends after they discover his full name is Ronald McDonald at a high school reunion. Last year, the Wall Street Journal even gave the clown one of its familiar black-and-white portraits to accompany a story. Here are a few facts about Ronald McDonald: • Ronald McDonald was first played by Willard Scott in an ad in the Washington, D.C.

market. The character magically pulled hamburgers out of his belt, while wearing a nose made out a McDonald’s cup. His hat was a tray holding a Styrofoam burger, a bag of fries and a milkshake. • Before Ronald McDonald became the national mascot for McDonald’s, the company’s ad agency considered changing him into a cowboy given the popularity of TV westerns, according to the book “McDonald’s: Behind the Arches.” Others said he should be made into a spaceman as a nod to the country’s budding space program. • For the first national ads, Scott was dropped because the agency thought he was too heavy to play the part of an “extremely active” Ronald, according to the book. “It was the first time I was really screwed by the mass media,” the book quotes Scott as saying. • One of the most popular first national ads first featuring Ronald McDonald showed him landing at a restaurant on a flying saucer shaped like a hamburger.

• In Japan, Ronald McDonald is known as Donald McDonald. A local businessman who helped open the first McDonald’s in the country decided that it would be easier to pronounce for the Japanese, according to “McDonald’s: Behind the Arches.” • McDonald’s doesn’t like to acknowledge that Ronald McDonald isn’t real. The company, based in Oak Brook, Ill., wouldn’t answer when asked repeatedly by the AP in 2011 how many actors it uses to portray the clown. “There’s only one Ronald,” an executive said. • McDonald’s executives bristle at criticism of their mascot. At an annual meeting in 2011, a shareholder expressed disappointment that Ronald wasn’t present as the company faced criticism over use of the clown in marketing to children. In response, then-CEO Jim Skinner said: “Ronald hasn’t been here because he’s out in the field busy doing work and fighting through the protesters.” Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/ candicechoi

Oh my, how I do dearly love to turkey hunt, but there does need to be just a wee bit of preparation ahead of time, and time’s running out. I’ll spend an evening — either tonight or Monday night — taking a look at my hunting gear and getting it ready. I primarily use a diaphragm call with multiple reeds. No matter how hard I try to Earle keep the Woodward reeds sepaAFIELD & rated, they AFLOAT always seem to be stuck together each spring. I’m going to spend a few minutes running some water over them and using a flat toothpick to try to gently pry the leaves apart. I form an attachment to the really good sounding calls and do hate to part with them because the reeds stick. If all else fails, I’ll make myself a new call or two. Yes, I do make my own diaphragm calls. I found a website, www. callpurrfect.com, that has a kit for sale that supplies all of the materials needed and a pretty good set of instructions to help you build your own calls. It may take a few calls to decide how you want to build yours, but I can tell you it’s worth it when a call you built is responsible for bringing in a big strutting Tom. They also have the individual components to order when you run out of parts. So, after I get finished playing with the calls, I’m sure I’ll be checking the turkey vest to be sure that everything I need is where it is supposed to be;

shot shells in the lower left pocket, diaphragms in the upper left pocket, box call in the upper right pocket and so on. I’ll need to replace the choke tube on my shotgun. Right now, it’s got a Modified tube in it from waterfowl hunting with steel shot, so I need to be sure the Full choke is in the barrel before I venture forth. It may seem like a minor thing, but I went goose hunting during the special early season in September a few years back and had the Full choke tube in from the previous turkey season and could not shoot the steel shot I’d brought for the geese. No hunting for me! Every year I wind up forgetting something that I’m going to need, and every year I try to be sure this is the year I don’t forget something. Go figure. A bit of last-minute scouting wouldn’t be a bad idea, if you can do it from a distance. I like to ride the roads of the hunting club and check out the fields and food plots for strutting birds. They don’t seem to be as bothered by a truck driving by as they are by a short, fat man slipping around from tree trunk to tree trunk. The last thing I want to do is spook a bird so badly that it takes the rest of the season for him to come back to the property. At the same time, I would like to know which end of the property to hunt and at what time of the day to be there. Let’s face it, not every bird gobbles its head off on the roost first thing in the morning, giving its location away. However, if you’ve done your homework, you have a really good idea as to the likely roosting spot for the birds in the mornings and in the evenings, and you should have a pretty good idea as to what time the birds will be in the

wheat fields and when they’ll be seeking the shade of the big oaks, etc. The trick is to be there before they are and be in the right end of the field or spot on a tract of land. There is nothing in the world like it to me; an early spring morning, maybe a bit of bite left in the air, dogwoods blooming and a few shoots of new grass popping their heads above ground level. If there is gobbling from the roost first thing in the morning, well, that just sends a shiver down my spine. I love it! What really gets me going is when I know the tom has flown down from the roost and is slowly making his way in my direction. Not always, but on most occasions, the sun has already broken the horizon and the rays are streaming through a canopy with small, green leaves just busting out from a winter’s rest. It’s that first glimpse of the bright, powder-blue and white head that brings me to life. The head is followed by a brilliant red neck and a body of dark black and brown feathers that change colors in the early morning sunlight to almost every hue one can imagine. Once that tails fans out and the struttin’ begins, hey, I just go to jelly. I absolutely love it! If you can’t afford to get addicted to another sport, then by all means, stay away from turkey hunting. It’s a lot like crack: one hit and you’re hooked for life. Well, one strutting Tom will do the same thing, so approach this hunting with extreme caution. I may not be able to make it on Tuesday morning. After all, I’ve got a real job that comes first, but I can pretty much bet you that I’ll be out and about Tuesday afternoon looking as hard as I can for Mr. Longbeard.

Farmers confront ‘big data’ revolution WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Farmers from across the nation gathered in Washington this month for what has become an annual trek to seek action on the most important matters in American agriculture, such as immigration reform and water regulations. But this time, a new, more shadowy issue also emerged: growing unease about how the largest seed companies are gathering vast amount of data from sensors on tractors, combines and other farm equipment. The increasingly common sensors measure soil conditions, seeding rates, crop yields and many other variables, allowing companies to provide farmers with customized guidance on how to get the most out of their fields. The involvement of the American Farm Bureau, the nation’s largest and most prominent farming organization, illustrates how agriculture is cautiously entering a new era in which raw planting data holds both the promise of higher yields and the peril that the information could be hacked or exploited by corporations or government agencies. Seed companies want to harness the data to help farmers grow more food with the same amount of land, and the industry’s biggest brands have offered assurances that all information will be closely guarded. But farmers are serving notice in Washington that the federal government might need to become involved in yet another debate over electronic security and privacy. Some members of Congress from rural states

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Nick Guetterman looks over the data shared by his crop sprayer and cell phone while on his farm near Bucyrus, Kan., recently. Farmers from across the nation gathered in Washington this month for their annual trek to seek action on the most important matters in American agriculture. such as Kansas were already aware of the concerns, although the issue is new to many urban lawmakers. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, a Kansas Republican who grew up on a dairy farm, said agriculture must achieve technological advances to keep up with population growth, which is expected to require 60 percent more food by 2050. But she has heard farmers’ concerns about data collection. “Information and data utilization is the way of the future,” Jenkins said in an emailed statement. “And just as our federal government struggles with privacy concerns through records at the NSA and various health records, so too must we maintain appropriate privacy protection of individuals from corporate entitles.” The Farm Bureau isn’t sure what it needs from Washington, or whether action is even

warranted yet. But farmers want their elected officials to be aware of how the industry is changing. This year’s trip to Washington was primarily “an educational effort” to make sure members of Congress know about the data collecting and understand “the implications of the issue for our farmers and ranchers,” Steve Baccus, an Ottawa County farmer and president of the Kansas Farm Bureau. “We may need to come back at some time in the future and talk to them about legislation.” Farmers worry that a hedge fund or large company with access to “realtime” yield data from hundreds of combines at harvest time might be able to use that information to speculate in commodities markets long before the government issues crop-production estimates.

FISHING REPORT Santee Cooper System Crappie: Good. Crappie can be found both deep and shallow and not all the fish have started to spawn yet. For shallow fish look around shoreline cover and use a minnow or jig under a bobber. Largemouth bass: Good. Largemouth bass fishing has been very strong and pre-spawn and spawning fish can be caught around most any shallow cover. They will take soft plastics bumped on the bottom and reaction baits pulled through the water column. Catfish: Fair. In both lakes catfishing is only fair during the daytime when blue catfish can be caught both deep and shallow. Fresh cut herring and shad are the baits of choice and a few catfish are being caught in the river and on the flats out of Pack’s Landing. Lake Murray Striper: Fair to good. Lake World reports the fish are scattered all over, but are fishing pretty good. Some schooling action reported. Go as deep as 30 feet with live bait and free lines. Some trolling results reportedly have produced. Largemouth bass: Fair. Lake World says the best action is in the morning around docks. Use crankbaits later in the day. It’s still not quite warm enough for the full spawn. Crappie: Good. Lake World reports that up the lake is the best result. Look around brush in 8-15 feet of water. Lake Wateree Largemouth bass: Fair. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that fish are starting to move in shallow with some catching off banks. Check around Beaver Creek, Singleton Creek and Dutchman’s around 15-18 feet. Still a bit chilly for a spawn just yet. Lake Greenwood Largemouth bass: Fair to good. Some reports of prespawn action and it’s likely there is some spawning going on. The water is high and quite muddy so most fish are shallow. Catch them on ARigs, JWill Swimbaits, spinnerbaits, lizards and plastics. The next full moon should bring on the spawn. Lake Monticello Catfish: Good. The baitfish are moving shallower and the big blues are following. Many fish are also feeding on mussels. The most productive depths have been 10 to 40 feet deep, and fishing mid-way to all the way back into the coves has been productive. Shallower humps and points are also producing. Anchoring has been most effective, and right now fish are taking a variety of sizes and types baits. Lake Russell Crappie: Fair. For now some fish can be found in shallow pockets with wood in about 2-3 feet of water. Striped bass: Slow. The striper bite remains elusive on Lake Russell, The most successful pattern should be fishing free lined live shiners (because of their durability).

Lake Thurmond Crappie: Good. Catch fish throwing minnows to shallow brush and casting jigs at the banks. Look in the shallow coves and the backs of creeks all across the lake, including the Georgia and South Carolina Little Rivers. On the upper end of Clarks Hill the crappie bite is very strong. Anchor and cast minnows 2 feet under a float towards little pockets with driftwood and spawning banks, which are characterized by steep sandy or gray dirt bottoms (not clay or rock) with scattered stumps, trees and rocks. Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good. The stripers are being caught on cut bait and lures by anglers fishing right in front of the dam in the evenings. Fishing down lines close to the bottom in 20-22 feet of water is also productive, and pulling herring slowing behind weighted planer boards has also been effective. Lake Wylie Catfish: Good to very good. Drift fishing for blue catfish has been very strong in major creeks mouths. The channel catfish bite in the upper Catawba has also been very strong where creeks are flowing into the main river. Largemouth Bass: Good. Bass are looking to move into protected spawning pockets with firm bottoms and good cover. Spinnerbaits, shallow crankbaits and jigs are all good for pre-spawn fish that are staging. White perch: Good. Find white perch feeding well in the upper sections of major feeder creeks. Lake Jocassee Trout: Fair to good. Fishing has been good although getting keepers in the boat has been a challenge some days. Fish are pushed up in the creeks around bait, and they can be caught from the surface down to 40 feet on Sutton 31s and live shiners. Lake Keowee Largemouth and Spotted Bass: Fair. Fish on many parts of Lake Keowee bass have not completed their springtime move towards the banks. However, around the warm water discharge from the power plant, and in the northwest areas of the lake, water temperatures have risen enough that some fish may already be on the beds. Wind-blown pockets have also been productive, and fishing small crankbaits that imitate the bait can be effective. Lake Hartwell Crappie: Good. Captain Bill Plumley reports the fishing has been going well with several warm days. The fish are anywhere from 30 feet deep, but mostly around 8-10 at docks and brush. Look for warm days and nights and catch them in 2-3 feet around grass. Expect the spawn to turn on soon. Catfish: Good. Captain Bill Plumley says the best action is in the backs of creeks around shallow points in 4-20 feet of water. Use cut bait.

‘Surviving a challenge ‘Surviving Jack’ Jack’ Won’t BeisEasy for Timidinsecure Teen for teen in 1990s

Sunday, March 30 - April 5, 2014

SUNDAY, MARCH 30, 2014

By Dan Rice FYI Television, Inc. Justin Halpern’s growing success is living proof that children should listen to what their parents say – or at least jot down those pearls of wisdom for later use. Dating back to his childhood, the San Diego writer’s collection of rhetorical gems by his father – retired doctor of nuclear medicine Samuel Halpern – began as a daily journal, but then in 2009 he transformed that into the popular Twitter feed @$#*! My Dad Says, which in turn became a best-selling book and a CBS sitcom. The elder Halpern’s unique manner of gruff love also figures in his son’s second autobiographical book, “I Suck at Girls,” and its new TV adaptation, “Surviving Jack,” airing Thursday at 9:30 p.m. on FOX. Set in 1990s Southern California, the single-camera ensemble comedy stars Emmy nominee Christopher Meloni (“True Blood,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) as oncologist Jack Dunlevy – an ex-military, no-nonsense kind of guy who sees no reason to sugar-coat the truth. Jack’s long been used to working long hours, coming home late, yelling at the kids and going to bed. But now that his wife, Joanne (Rachael Harris, “Suits”), has entered law school, he must now function as a full-time parent for the very first time. Jack will have a handful with his 17-year-old daughter, Rachel (Claudia Lee, “Hart of Dixie”) – brilliant, gorgeous and now breaking loose from the watchful eye of her mother. But with his son, Frankie (Connor Buckley, “Deception”), an insecure freshman whose recent growth spurt now attracts girls with whom he has no idea how to act, Jack must help him come of age just as he is learning how to become a real father. Halpern, who co-created and coexecutive produces “Surviving Jack”

with his previous series partner Patrick Schumacker (“Cougar Town”), says they strive to accurately portray his father’s tough but truthful style of parenting. “I think the line we try to never cross and the line that my father won’t cross is I always feel like he’s saying what he thinks honestly,” Halpern elaborates. “And I think as long as it’s honest – sometimes that will sting, hence being told I look like [crap] before I come in front of 200 people – it was something that, as a kid, I always knew where I stood, you know. He was worried I would go out into the world and live in what he calls a world of [bull], which is, like, people in L.A. telling you, ‘Oh, this is great,’ but they don’t really think it is. So, I think we just never wanted the character to be mean. We wanted him to be honest. And Chris was always on patrol for that.” “I thought it was very important that he’s authentic,” Meloni adds. “And whether you agree with that authenticity or not – I mean, sometimes I would think of Archie Bunker without the racism. You know, what came out of his mouth was a little jarring at times, but he was truly coming from his heart.” As a high school freshman filled with hormones yet practically devoid of experience, Frankie is bound to land in confusing and embarrassing situations on a regular basis, but Jack is always there to lead him into manhood, albeit with the least gentle hand possible. And given that the year is 1991, Frankie isn’t able to Google the answer to all of life’s mysteries, only turn … carefully … to his only resource – his dad. “You weren’t able to access all these things that you could access now,” Halpern says of his teenage years in the Nineties. “I mean, if you wanted to learn about the female body, you had to ask the tough kid 2:30

in school, who might know. He’d tell you everything that was wrong. Or you’d have to steal pornography or something like that.” That pre-Internet aspect and Halpern’s candid anecdotes held much of the series’ appeal to coexecutive producer Bill Lawrence (“Cougar Town,” “Scrubs”). “These guys sold us the show partly based on the pitch that it was a time that you couldn’t just hit a button on your phone as a kid and know everything immediately,” Lawrence allows. “It really kind of landed for us. We saw the pilot. There was a scene in which Justin, in real life, did steal a big stack of nudie magazines from a couple of homeless gentlemen who lived in the woods and came back and buried them in a hole in his yard so his mom and dad wouldn’t catch him. And I knew that we had lucked onto something. The first production meeting, the prop master and some other people were huddled around, and they’re having what looked to be a very serious conversation. And then one of them raised their hand and said, ‘We’re just wondering if this really happened. You just put those magazines, like, straight in the dirt to get ruined?’ And Justin – this is his nightmare – in front of 40 people he had to admit that he had actually taken the time in real life to line the hole he had dug with newspaper to protect his stash of porn before he buried it in mud.” Meloni, who is no pushover as a father in real life, recognizes the value of a fine balance between unconditional love and a little bit of intimidation. “As a matter of fact,” the actor shares, “the highest compliment I have yet received in my parenting job was when I gave a look to my son like this, and his response was this: ‘I don’t know if you’re kidding or not.’ And I went, ‘That’s where I want you.’”
