Half century passes since JFK’s shooting

It was the most awful moment I had ever experienced as far as national news that affected all of us the way it did. He was such a young man and had a young family. We all just felt so connected to this presidency, and it was a very quiet bus ride coming home. As young people, we were so vested in government and politics. He elevated our thinking to that level, because again, he was such a young man, and we identified with him. Ronetta Moses, Sumter

A photo of John F. Kennedy and flowers lie on a plaque at Dealey Plaza in Dallas on Thursday. Locally, James L. Felder and Sammy Lee Williams are remembering their involvement in the funeral ceremony for the nation’s 35th president leading up to the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination. “The situation I was in with the military is that we had to put emotions aside and do our jobs,” Felder said.

Base bomb threat sends schools into lockdown BY BRADEN BUNCH bbunch@theitem.com

It was right after lunch in English class when the principal came on the intercom. They somehow hooked it up to the radio so we could listen to the live broadcast. One girl went into hysterics, and they had to take her to the health office. It was homecoming weekend, and they canceled a lot of the activities, so I stayed home with my mother and watched Jack Ruby shoot Oswald.

A bomb threat at Shaw Air Force Base on Thursday forced a lockdown of the military installation for several hours, preventing both Shaw Heights Elementary School and High Hills Elementary School from dismissing at their normal times.

Soldiers compete to be ‘top shot’ BY AIRMAN 1ST CLASS JENSEN STIDHAM 20th Fighter Wing Public Affairs Special to The Item U.S. Army soldiers participated in a “top shot” competition at the 20th Security Forces Squadron Combat Arms Training and Maintenance firing range at Shaw Air Force Base on Nov. 14. Nine soldiers competed for the title. Marksmanship is a key component of a soldier’s readiness and was tested during the competition with competitors firing both the M16 rifle and M9 handgun. “I’d say I did pretty well on the M9,” said Chief Warrant Officer 5 Jeff Fraher, U.S. Army Central aviation safety officer, “and fair to midland on the M16. But I’d say pretty well considering I hadn’t fired an M16 since the ’80s.” During the course of several hours, each soldier fired at 11 separate paper targets to include shapes, numbers and balloons. Maintaining a level of calmness to accurately fire weapons was just one of the many challenges during the competition. “The key to (firing) is just trying to stay calm and control your breathing,” said 1st Sgt. Mark Davis, 297th Military Intelligence Battalion, Charlie Company first sergeant. “And once that adrenaline starts going, that’s when you really have to stay focused.” “Overall I had a ball,” added Davis. Maj. Robert Paul, U.S. Army Central chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives operations chief, placed first.

The summer growing season may be over, but local farmers still have an option for selling their produce for another month. The South Sumter Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday morning behind the South Sumter Resource Center, 337 Manning Ave. Restarted earlier this month by several neighborhood associations on the southside, the market is welcoming vendors from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. now through the final Saturday in December, as long as farmers still have items to sell. The park behind the Resource Center was intended to host a farmer’s market but hadn’t hosted any stalls for a while until this year’s version got started. “There used to be one, and I don’t know why they stopped,” said Calvin Hastie, who represents the southside on city council. A variety of fresh produce has been available during the first two Saturdays of the month, including collards, cabbage, onions, squash and turnip greens. One local grower even offers a holiday selection of Christmas trees and wreaths. The Youth Build program at the Resource Center, which provides continuing education for young people in the area, is also selling flower boxes the program’s students grew themselves in the park, and the center will also be collecting canned goods for a holiday food drive. The market is hoping to attract vendors and customers in between the end of the Liberty Street farmer’s market in September and the coming of winter, while bringing more activity, commerce and visitors to the neighborhood. Vendors can set up stalls without charge for the rest of the year, but Hastie said a fee may be introduced when the market reopens in the spring to support the Youth Build program. Sellers are asked to call (803) 774-7776 to reserve a space.

Clemson dedicates $110 million energy center BY BRUCE SMITH The Associated Press NORTH CHARLESTON — A U.S. energy official on Thursday attended the dedication of a new multimilliondollar research center at Clemson University that features the world’s largest wind turbine test rig. U.S. Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman joined Clemson President James Barker and other dignitaries at the dedication of the $110 million Energy Systems Innovation Center. About 1,000 people attended the ceremony. The center is located in a renovated building at the old

Charleston Naval Base. Colored lights bathed the fourstory, 400-ton unit capable of testing drivetrains for wind turbines big enough to produce 15 megawatts, or enough energy to power 6,000 homes. The center also features a smaller turbine drivetrain testing rig as well as a 15-megawatt electric grid test facility. The center was financed in part by a $45 million federal stimulus grant from the Department of Energy that the university won in a competitive award process. It is located at Clemson’s Restoration Institute, which also includes the lab where the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley is

He said the innovations from the grid research center will mean a more robust electrical grid that is better protected from computer and physical attacks and will mean faster recovery after disasters such as hurricanes. Barker noted that the $45 million was the largest grant in Clemson history. Poneman said wind turbine testing is crucial to a wind industry that already employs 80,000 people nationwide.

Ex-AP writer recalls serving as Oswald pallbearer BY MIKE COCHRAN The Associated Press Editor’s Note: Mike Cochran was AP’s Fort Worth correspondent in 1963 and retired from the company in 1999. FORT WORTH, Texas — On a gloomy November afternoon, I helped carry the inexpensive wooden casket of Lee Harvey Oswald to a grave on a slight rise dotted with dying grass.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2013

50 YEARS from Page A1 a student in Atlanta at Clark College. He was a man I admired,â&#x20AC;? Felder said. In 1963, Felder was stationed at Fort Myer, Va., as a member of the U.S. Army Honor Guard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the most elite unit in the Army â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at Arlington National Cemetery. Felder said Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination was one of many tragedies of that year, starting with the death of Medgar Evers, the Mississippi NAACP field secretary, and the killing of four little girls in Birmingham, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x153;President Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination was a real blow to the African-American community. He had just begun to address the civil rights issues

of the day,â&#x20AC;? Felder explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His death dashed the hopes of so many for a time. Thanks to President Lyndon Johnson, who would implement much of the legislation Kennedy had proposed.â&#x20AC;? With 57 days left to complete his duty, Felder decided to take a few of his 43 days of accumulated leave to job search in preparation for rejoining civilian life. He scheduled his leave to coincide with the Thanksgiving holidays because he planned to pack his wife and son into their car and drive to Sumter to visit friends and family. While job searching and waiting for his wife, Charletta, to get off work at a local library, Felder received the news of the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination during a visit to Dallas. Felder still recalls the events that followed the tragic news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My leave was canceled,

THE ITEM

and I was told to put my team together to prepare to bury the president,â&#x20AC;? he said. Felder said a team was quickly assembled, and they flew to Andrews Air Force Base to transport the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. For Felderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lincoln High School classmate Sammy Lee Williams, that day back in 1963 was also just a regular day until he heard the news. Williams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who had been in the service for 19 months before the Kennedy assassination â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said he was part of the 21-gun salute during Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was yelling and crying, and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is going on?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Williams recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said the president was shot, and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The president is in Dallas,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and they said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where he was shot.â&#x20AC;? During the next four days, which Felder refers to in his

book â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Buried John F. Kennedyâ&#x20AC;? as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;four dark days,â&#x20AC;? Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body never left Felderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sight, including when Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casket was changed. During the ceremony, Felder and Williams both played their roles in laying Kennedy to rest. As black men looking forward to change during the civil rights movement, they knew the emotions flowing through their communities. And yet, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The situation I was in with the military is that we had to put emotions aside and do our jobs,â&#x20AC;? Felder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really hit me until about 10 days after the service.â&#x20AC;? All over the country, Americans are remembering where they were and how they felt when they heard of Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination. On Wednesday, President Obama, First Lady Michelle

A7

Obama, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia to honor him during a wreath-laying ceremony. Williams said he felt nothing but honor after being a part of the funeral service in 1963 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a part of his life that most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe when he tells the story. Every time Felder thinks about it, he remembers one moment during the ceremony 50 years ago that many have seen in photographs and videos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always remember Little John John at St. Matthews Cathedral. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he really knew what was going on, and that day was his birthday,â&#x20AC;? he recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when he popped that salute, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what sticks in my mind.â&#x20AC;?

Is younger generation losing interest in Kennedy? BY TYLER SIMPSON tyler@theitem.com It has been 50 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth continues to learn about the historic event from school textbooks, as well as from their parents and grandparents who remember where they were when it happened. But does this younger generation find this moment in American history still relevant, or is it looked over as just another history lesson? Many of the USC Sumter students interviewed agreed that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger generation shows little interest and understanding on how

Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination impacted an entire nation, mostly because the tragedy happened years before their time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The further away you get from an incident happening, you lose the grasp you had over the years,â&#x20AC;? said freshman athletic training major Nicolas Doyle. The students also felt todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth lack the necessary motivation to learn about the past when all their attention is placed on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there is any reason why any interest in Kennedy is dying out, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care,â&#x20AC;? said sophomore criminology major Justin Chambers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the desire to look back and learn about what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the focus has changed since the time of the assassination,â&#x20AC;? said sophomore broadcast journalism major Lainey Sneider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care as much about what happened in the past and are more concerned with what they have to do tomorrow.â&#x20AC;? Some said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how teachers are lecturing

about the assassination that could be affecting how students absorb history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think students take history as seriously as they should because it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being taught correctly,â&#x20AC;? said senior elementary education major Melanie Ophiem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students are more concerned about dates and people as opposed to what it actually means.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily

taught about the assassination,â&#x20AC;? Doyle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touched on, but not necessarily taught.â&#x20AC;? Regarding how education plays a factor, Thomas L. Powers, an American history professor at USC Sumter, commented that each school lectures on the assassination differently. However, there are still students who do understand the impact Kennedy made on the

nation during his time in office, from his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement to his struggles during the Cuban Missile Crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been assassinated, he would have made some major changes for the country,â&#x20AC;? Chambers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were to read about him, you could see that he was trying to make a difference.â&#x20AC;? Reach Tyler Simpson at (803) 774-1295.

RELIGION BRIEFS SANTORUM STILL OPEN TO 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RUN

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is spending time right now making Christian movies, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not ruling out another presidential run in 2016. The former Pennsylvania senator said Monday he needs to consider the effect that another campaign would have on his wife and seven children, and also the financial burden. But he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;sureâ&#x20AC;? when asked if he is still open to another run. He said he

| will see where he is a year from now. For now, Santorum is in the movie business. In June, he was named CEO of EchoLight Studios, a Dallas-based film production company promoting family Christian films. He is currently in New York showing one of those films, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Christmas Candle.â&#x20AC;? PASTOR SUSPENDED FOR SONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GAY WEDDING

church law of officiating at his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s same-sex wedding in Massachusetts has been sentenced to a short suspension. The same jury of pastors that convicted the Rev. Frank Schaefer on Monday of breaking his vows suspended him from his ministerial duties for 30 days Tuesday. His credentials will be revoked if he violates church rules during that time.

Schaefer told jurors he is unrepentant for the 2007 marriage and refused to promise he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perform more gay unions. He says he has been called by God to be an advocate for the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people. The case has rekindled debate within the United Methodist Church over its policies on homosexuality and samesex marriage.

Remembering John F. Kennedy BY HUBERT D. OSTEEN Jr. Item Editor

L

ike many Americans of a certain age, I remember exactly where I was on that fateful day, Nov. 22, 1963. How could I ever forget it or the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001? My father and mother before me likely experienced the same emotions I felt when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, plunging the United States into World War II and changing millions of Americans’ lives, including my parents. The JFK assassination in Dallas was even more unbearable because of the brutal manner in which the president was killed and the what-ifs that followed: What would the world look like today if Hubert D. Osteen Jr. he wasn’t killed? Would he have extricated America from the Vietnam War and saved thousands of our soldiers’ lives? The list could go on infinitely. What distinguishes the Kennedy assassination from other life-altering events is there has been no real closure, thanks to the conspiracy theorists who keep multiplying. As for where I was on that date, I was traveling through Brunswick, Ga., from a newspaper meeting in Florida with my wife and parents. I was driving and listening to the radio when an announcer interrupted the program and said The Associated Press was reporting shots had been fired at the Kennedy motorcade as it slowly made its way through the streets of Dallas to the cheers of onlookers, many of them seeing the president in person for the first time. Surely, I thought, no one would try to kill the president —he is well protected by the Secret Service; not well enough, it turned out. The announcer came on the air again with another bulletin saying the president had been shot and his condition was not known at the time. Shortly thereafter a shaken announcer reported: “Ladies and gentlemen, according to confirmed news reports, President John F. Kennedy is dead, killed by a sniper in downtown Dallas.” There was a long silence as the announcer tried to compose himself. My mother was crying from the back seat; my father sat in stunned silence. The silence was broken when the National Anthem was played on the radio. Cars were pulling over along Interstate 95 as the shocking announcement was heard by the occupants. Many of them stepped out of their cars and were visibly weeping. The rest of the traffic began moving slowly. It was almost like a funeral procession.

All I wanted to do then was get back to Sumter and see how the newsroom handled the JFK assassination. We had a leg up on the morning newspapers because we were an afternoon paper then and had time to re-plate the front page. The staff moved quickly and got the edition on the streets and into homes. The red headline at the top of the page told what happened. My generation liked and admired President Kennedy and strongly believed that he had the vision, energy and ability to lead the nation into the “New Frontier” as he described it. What we saw of him during his campaign for the presidency and on to his soaring inaugural address would be his charisma, charm and wit that struck a positive chord for the nation. In spite of the failure early in his administration at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba to remove the communist government of Fidel Castro, he would regroup and with a steady hand help prevent World War III during the Cuban missile crisis. He had his detractors, as all presidents have experienced, and his womanizing, only hinted at by a supportive mainstream press, was beginning to show up in the tabloids. But overall, he remained popular with the public and didn’t expect to face any serious opposition in his 1964 re-election campaign. I never met President Kennedy, but my father did when he, along with editors and publishers from 12 dailies and six weeklies in South Carolina, was invited to attend a luncheon session hosted by the president at the White House. It was his 19th luncheon with newspaper editors and publishers from throughout the country to discuss world and national issues. The luncheon was held on April 4, 1963. My father wrote about it in The Item. Kennedy proved to be a gracious host, “pleasant and affable throughout the affair,” he wrote, describing the president as “still youthful looking and appears to be in top physical shape. ... His dark reddish hair is becoming liberally sprinkled with gray, especially around the temples, but otherwise two years of the tremendous strain of the presidency has not altered his appearance to any noticeable degree.” During the discussions the president complimented the newspapers of South Carolina for “helping provide a favorable climate for the admittance of Harvey Gantt to Clemson” as its first black student. He concluded the article by writing, “While I cannot speak for all of my colleagues, I believe the great majority were favorably impressed with John F. Kennedy.” Only five months later, the president was murdered, and a shocked nation asked, why? It’s still asking that question 50 years later.

France called it a ‘sucker’s deal’

W

ASHINGTON — A president desperate to change the subject and a secretary of state desperate to make a name for himself are reportedly on the verge of an “interim” nuclear agreement with Iran. France called it a “sucker’s deal.” France was being charitable. The only reason Iran has come to the table after a decade of contemptuous stonewalling is that economic sanctions have cut so deeply — Iran’s currency has collapsed, inflation is rampant — that the regime fears a threat to its very survival. Nothing else could move it to negotiate. Regime survival is the only thing the mullahs value above nuclear weapons. And yet precisely at the point of maximum leverage, President Obama is offering relief in a deal that is absurdly asymmetric: The West would weaken sanctions in exchange for cosmetic changes that do absolutely nothing to weaken Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. Don’t worry, we are assured. This is only an interim six-month agreement to “build confidence” until we reach a final one. But this makes no sense. If at this point of maximum economic pressure we can’t get Iran to accept a final deal that shuts down its nuclear program, how in God’s name do we expect to get such a deal when we have radically reduced that pressure? A bizarre negotiating tactic. And the content of the deal is even worse. It’s a rescue package for the mullahs. It widens permissible trade in oil, gold and auto parts. It releases frozen Iranian assets, increasing Iran’s foreign-exchange reserves by 25 percent while doubling its fully accessible foreignexchange reserves. Such a massive infusion of cash would be a godsend for its staggering economy, lower-

ing inflation, reducing shortages and halting the country’s growing demoralization. The prospective deal is already changing economic expectations. Foreign oil and other interests are reportedly preparing to reopen negotiations for a resumption of trade in anticipation of the full lifting of sanctions. And for what? You’d offer such relief in return for Iran giving up its pursuit of nuclear weapons. Isn’t that what the entire exercise is about? And yet Charles this deal does KRAUTHAMMER nothing of the sort. Nothing. It leaves Iran’s nuclear infrastructure intact. Iran keeps every one of its 19,000 centrifuges — yes, 19,000 — including 3,000 second-generation machines that produce enriched uranium at five times the rate. Not a single centrifuge is dismantled. Not a single facility that manufactures centrifuges is touched. In Syria, the first thing the weapons inspectors did was to destroy the machines that make the chemical weapons. Then they went after the stockpiles. It has to be that way. Otherwise, the whole operation is an exercise in futility. Take away just the chemical agents, and the weaponsmaking facilities can replace them at will. Yet that’s exactly what we’re doing with Iran. It would deactivate its 20 percent enriched uranium, which besides being chemically reversible, is quickly replaceable because Iran retains its 3.5 percent uranium, which can be enriched to 20 percent in less than a month. Result: Sanctions relief that leaves Iran’s nuclear infrastructure untouched, including — and this is where the French gagged — the

plutonium facility at Arak, a defiant alternate path to a nuclear weapon. The point is blindingly simple. Unless you dismantle the centrifuges and prevent the manufacture of new ones, Iran will be perpetually just a few months away from going nuclear. This agreement, which is now reportedly being drafted to allow Iran to interpret it as granting the “right” to enrich uranium, constitutes the West legitimizing Iran’s status as a threshold nuclear state. Don’t worry, we are assured. The sanctions relief is reversible. Nonsense. It was extraordinarily difficult to cobble together the current sanctions. It took endless years of overcoming Russian, Chinese and Indian recalcitrance, together with foot-dragging from Europeans making a pretty penny from Iran. Once the relaxation begins, how do you reverse it? How do you reapply sanctions? There is absolutely no appetite for this among our allies. And adding back old sanctions will be denounced as a provocation that would drive Iran to a nuclear breakout — exactly as Obama is today denouncing congressional moves to increase sanctions as a dealbreaking provocation that might lead Iran to break off talks. The mullahs are eager for this interim agreement with its immediate yield of political and economic relief. Once they get it, we will have removed their one incentive to conclude the only agreement that is worth anything to us — a verifiable giving up of their nuclear program. Brilliant.

LOCKDOWN from Page A1 outside, wondering what was happening within the base gates. Military officials first learned of the bomb threat about 12:10 p.m. when, according to Master Sgt. Cohen Young with the 20th Fighter Wing public affairs office, the base’s emergency response team received a report alerting them to the potential threat. “The wing mobilized specialized airmen and equipment to thoroughly investigate the area, taking extensive precautions to ensure the safety of all base personnel,” Young said. “The sweeps resulted in negative findings near the base schools.” Shelly Galloway, spokeswoman for Sumter School District, said parents and buses were finally approved to enter the base gate on S.C. 441 — the one closest to the two schools — about 3 p.m. “Unfortunately, the school district was not officially notified until toward the end of the lockdown,” Galloway said. “As a result, the dismissal was delayed.” Long traffic lines out-

side each of the base’s gates were reported Wednesday afternoon. Young said base personnel were “concluding additional sweeps outside their respective work areas as a prescribed safety precaution,” about 3 p.m. At that time, base officials said they were expecting the public school students would be dismissed at their normal times, apparently unaware that the standard dismissal time had already passed. The local public school district operates both schools on the grounds of the base, educating both military and non-military dependents from surrounding areas. Standing next to one another on Frierson Road, the two schools have a combined enrollment of about 950 students. Parents and guardians of students living outside the base are required at the beginning of the school year to register for non-transferable passes in order to pick up their children from the schools.

The senior just finished an unbeaten season, going 16-0 and helping the Lady Gamecocks to a 12-4 season and a runnerup finish in Region VI4A.

IRVING, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jason Garrett will start the stretch run in pursuit of his first trip to the playoffs on the same field where he debuted as coach of the Dallas Cowboys three years ago.

While saying he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;disappointedâ&#x20AC;? in a 5-5 re-

Lawyer: FSU QB Winston volunteered DNA to police BY GARY FINEOUT& KAREEM COPELAND The Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston volunteered a DNA sample last week to the Tallahassee Police Department as part of the sexual assault investigation, his attorney said Thursday, adding that he believes Winston will be exonerated and any DNA does not prove guilt. Winston’s lawyer Tim Jansen said at a press conference Thursday morning that the sex between his client and the accuser “absolutely” was consensual, but then retreated when pressed by reporters who asked him to confirm what he just said. “I’m not saying that,” Jansen said. “I’m saying the eyewitnesses that were there will verify that any material that was found, or any evidence that was found, is consistent with him (doing) nothing wrong.” ESPN first reported Wednesday night that Winston’s DNA matched a sample taken from the underwear of the accuser. Jansen said he has not seen the results of the DNA tests and found out watching television. “All I know is it’s very suspicious that the only news reporting agency that (State Attorney) Willie Meggs met privately with yesterday in his office was the one that reported that last night on television,” Jansen said. “And that would be ESPN.” Meggs denied that he — or anyone in his office — released the DNA information to the media. He called the release of the information “problematic.” He said he did not know who the source of information was for ESPN. Tallahassee Police Department spokesman David Northway told The Associated Press that the leak did not come from the police. Meggs, who has been the lead prosecutor in the Tallahassee area for nearly 30 years, also refused to discuss the

results or any other “evidence” that was part of the case. But Meggs did acknowledge that prosecutors have issued subpoenas in order to collect evidence for the ongoing investigation. Jansen said he’s surprised the DNA results were leaked by law enforcement but, “this DNA has no impact whatsoever on this case. The two eyewitnesses that were present will exonerate” Winston. Jansen said the DNA of one of the eyewitnesses was also taken in the last week by investigators. “We’re not surprised (Winston’s) DNA was found,” Jansen said. “We anticipated that would be found. We’ve never ever said he wasn’t there. We never said any of that.”

CARSON from Page B1 was only the fourth running back to rush for at least 100 yards against Florida this season, joining Georgia’s Todd Gurley, LSU’s Jeremy Hill and Missouri’s Henry Josey. That 58-yard run in the fourth quarter was the longest against the Gators this fall, eclipsing Josey’s 50-yard run last month. “It’s a big accomplishment that I got,” Carson reasoned after Wednesday night’s practice. “I couldn’t get it without my O-line, so you’ve got to give them props too. That’s a confidence builder. We’ve got two big backs that can go over 100 yards at any time.” The other, of course, is USC sophomore Mike Davis. The Doak Walker semifinalist has reached the 100-yard mark seven times in 10 games, while Saturday was Carson’s first. Since the time Carson arrived at USC, he’s been buried in the backfield. He had surgery on his left wrist late in preseason camp last year, costing him the 2012 season. It was the type of adversity that could derail a career. Instead, Carson has only gotten stronger. When USC hosts Coastal Carolina at 1 p.m. Saturday, Carson will get his first career start. “It’s just another game that I’ve got to play like I’m not starting,” Carson said. “It feels good to get more starts now that they’ve got more confidence in me, and they trust me with the ball more now.” As good as Carson was last week, his first start comes because Davis isn’t

100 percent healthy. When Coastal Carolina is the next opponent on the schedule, stars are kept to the sideline for anything more severe than a hang nail. Carson isn’t challenging Davis on the depth chart. Next week against Clemson, Davis will shoulder the load. Yet, it’s a testament to Carson’s improvement this fall that he can be relied on to start a game at all. As a freshman in 2011, Carson had three carries for 9 yards. In 10 games this season, he has 47 carries for 216 yards. He’ll get a chance to

build on that Saturday. USC offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator Shawn Elliott has full confidence in the backup shining with more opportunities. “Speed, power and quickness. This guy can really get north and south very quickly,” Elliott said Wednesday. “He runs hard, he’s got a great motor. It doesn’t take a whole lot to get him started. You get a small, little crease, and he can take it. He did a fine job last week, very pleased with how he performed. Hopefully he can have another big week for us.”

Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, left, pulls in a touchdown reception over Georgia Tech’s D.J. White during the Tigers’ 55-31 victory. Watkins has been a steady performer despite all the attention he gets both on and off the field.

Watkins lets talent speak for itself BY AARON BRENNER Post and Courier CLEMSON — A hoodie, sweatpants, flip-flops, maybe a baseball hat capping those unmistakable dreads if he feels like it. Sammy Watkins’ wardrobe is not complicated. More casual than chic, more laidback than look-at-me, Watkins offered a slight smile and polite chuckle when a reporter asked Tuesday if the 2011 freshman All-American had any diva in him, a la the Terrell Owenses and Dez Bryants of the wide receiver world. “Not at all,” Watkins said. “If I was a diva, I’d be dressed up every day. I go to class like SWINNEY this every day: flipflops, and incognito with my hat on my head. “There’s no diva in this team. We just come out and play football. That’s what we’ve been coached on.” On a number of occasions, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney has blessed Watkins with a particular assessment blending his abilities and demeanor. “One of the most low-maintenance superstars,” Swinney said, “I’ve ever dealt with.” Watkins appreciates the compliment. “I don’t say too much. I practice hard every day, go out there and have fun with it,” Watkins said. “I’m a happy guy. It shows on the field in practice, getting everybody riled up to compete. I don’t talk about what I’ve done; it’s in the record books. I just have a blue-collar work ethic. Same thing in the game; just have fun and play the game the way it’s supposed to be played.” Watkins endured a brutal sophomore slump after bursting onto the

scene his first year at Clemson, going from 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2011 to 708 and 3 last fall. Sitting out the first two games of 2012 due to an offseason drug charge, he never regained his rhythm. To contrast how well Watkins has bounced back, he’s exceeded the 2012 totals with 731 yards and seven touchdowns … in just his last six games. He’s eighth in the country with 1,086 yards on the year, and his consistency has been striking: Watkins has seven different games with 100 yards, and other than a walkover against S.C. State when the starters played sparingly, none with fewer than four catches or 68 yards. “Last year, I wasn’t a practice person. I lagged, I loafed, caught the ball and stopped,” Watkins self-evaluated. “Now this year, I’m finishing catches and practicing harder, finishing blocks. Those are things that carry over to the game.” Watkins does run his mouth when the time is right. He readily admits his penchant for trash-talking teammates in practice during the week and opponents on Saturday. “I take pride in coming to the season and dominating every team,” Watkins said. “Putting my face back on Clemson and letting everybody I can be that same guy from my freshman year. I came this summer to work probably the hardest I’ve ever worked, and it’s showing out on the field.” It’s also showing professional scouts what type of talent could be available in next spring’s NFL draft. The consensus is he’s a projected first-rounder, which is why it’s highly likely Watkins will also play his final home game at Memorial Stadium Saturday along with the senior class should he leave after this junior season.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2013

RB Scott continues to be top target for USC D to give the Gamecock defensive line another force in the middle. “I feel good about it and confident,” he said. ‘I’m an inside pass rusher and that guy fighting in the trenches to hold my side down.” Wide receiver Jamil Kamara of Norfolk, Va., just picked up an offer from USC last week. At that time he had not scheduled an official visit with the Gamecocks. That’s changed now as Kamara will visit the Gamecocks officially for the Clemson weekend. That visit replaces one he had scheduled for Virginia. Kamara has taken official visits to Michigan State and Wisconsin and is scheduled to visit Pittsburgh this weekend. He has stated that Wisconsin was his leader ahead of Michigan State. Pahokee, Fla., athlete Rashaun Croney (6 feet, 175 pounds) said he has offers from USC, Arkansas, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Bowling Green and Mississippi State. He plays QB, WR, linebacker and safety and has scored 13 touchdowns this season. He’s not visited anywhere thus far this season, but he was at USC’s spring game last April. Croney said the only thing standing in his way of committing to USC is a qualifying ACT score. He took the test a few weeks ago and is expecting the score next week. He said he would commit if the score is good enough and he believes USC would take it. He’s also hearing from Arkansas and is interested, but USC is the favorite. After surprising many by committing to FSU earlier this year, DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda High School has been mostly silent. Wideman had been considered a strong USC lean, having grown up a Gamecock fan. He was back at USC for the Florida game. He also was in for the Vanderbilt game. Wideman continues to consider USC and plans to take official visits to both schools before making a final decision. DL Zeek Rodney of South Pointe High in Rock Hill is starting to narrow down the schools he is focusing on, though he does not have any favorites. The first weekend of November saw Rodney take his first official visit to Marshall. He received an offer from Syracuse last month and has scheduled his official visit there for Jan. 17. The other two schools Rodney plans to visit are Boston College and Charlotte. All have offered. His other offers include South Carolina State, Louisiana Lafayette, Appalachian State, Toledo and Ball State Tight end RJ Tyler of Wagener-Sally High committed

to Charlotte earlier this season. He has visited the Queen City three times and likes what the 49ers offer. His other visits were to Georgia Tech and App State, but he has not ruled out the possibility of more visits. Wofford, SCSU, Charlotte, Western Carolina and App State were his offers, and he continues to hear from GT and East Carolina. He said his commitment is solid right now. DL Kwammelle Barnes of Saluda High has an offer from SCSU and is waiting to see if more offers will come his way. He has visited SCSU, USC, Louisiana State and App State, and he wants to visit NCSU. Goose Creek High RB Caleb Kinlaw switched his commitment from GT to Wisconsin. He had committed to the Yellow Jackets in August. DL Cory Thomas of Mccalla, Ala., committed to Tennessee. Clemson was one of his favorites. OL Christian Taylor of White Knoll High in Lexington committed to SCSU. Juniors: Linebacker Ricky DeBerry Jr. of Richmond, Va., is one of the nation’s top prospects for ‘15 with nearly 50 offers at this point. He visited Clemson for the UGA game to open the season and he will visit USC for the Phil Clemson game KORNBLUT to close out the season. He has been to North Carolina and Virginia Tech, and plans to go to Penn State this weekend. An Oregon recruiter is coming for a visit and an offer is expected to be made. DeBerry is hoping to get out to Eugene in December. DeBerry has never been to USC so he wants to get a good look at the campus and the academic side of things on his trip. He was at Clemson last summer and again for the UGA game, and he holds the Tigers in high regard at this point. DeBerry has not narrowed his list and has no favorites. QB Kelly Bryant (6-4, 200) of Wren High in Piedmont continues to show the doubters he is an NCAA Division I quality QB prospect. Bryant transferred to Wren from Abbeville High where he was considered an athlete in recruiting circles because he hadn’t convinced the analysts he could be a big time QB. However, the new staff at NCSU saw something it liked and was the first to offer him strictly as a QB. Clemson and USC also have offered along with UNC, GT and App State. Bryant has visited Clemson, Ohio State and UNC. He’s going to Louisville and plans to be at USC for the recruiting corner

errell Scott of Havelock, N.C., has been South Carolina’s top running back target for the 2014 class, and he made his official visit with the Gamecocks last weekend. His parents joined him on the visit. Scott also has taken official visits to North Carolina State and Tennessee. USC has been his favorite throughout the recruiting process, and the Gamecocks are trying to fend off the others, particularly Tennessee, which impressed Scott on his visit there. Defensive back Wesley Green of Lithonia, Ga., planned to attend the USCFlorida game last Saturday, but did not make it. Green is a former Gamecock commitment. He is down to USC, Georgia, Tennessee and Auburn. He said he does not have a favorite and he has not scheduled his official visits. DB DJ Smith of Marietta, Ga., did make it in for an unofficial visit to USC. He’s also been to Clemson, Tennessee and UGA. All four are even and he plans to take official visits to each before making his decision. That decision may not come until National Signing Day in February of ‘14. Offensive lineman Kareem Are of Fort Scott Junior College in Kansas made an official visit to Florida State over the weekend. He has also scheduled officials to Penn State this weekend and to USC on Nov. 29. The Gamecocks just jumped in on Are last week and offered him on Monday. Are is working to graduate in December and will have three years to play two in major college. Defensive lineman Abu Lamin of Fort Scott has been committed to USC since July and last week, following a visit to Tennessee, he reaffirmed his commitment to the Gamecocks. “It’s close to home and they’ve been loyal from the beginning,” said Lamin, who is a native of Fayetteville, N.C. “There’s no need to switch. They’ve been doing everything right. It’s the loyalty. I went on the visit to check it out. I really enjoyed it, but I was committed to South Carolina and they just didn’t sway me off things that I should get off South Carolina.” Lamin said his academics look good as he needs only to complete a college algebra course and a couple of electives to be able to graduate in December and enroll in January. He also took official visits to USC, Florida, Nebraska and Arkansas, and he plans to be at USC for the Clemson game. Lamin finished his season with 34 tackles, 1 1/2 quarterback sacks and 7 1/2 tackles for loss, and he hopes

Clemson game. There is no frontrunner at this point. OL Jake Fruhmorgen (6-5, 280) of Tampa, Fla., will be one of the most heavily recruited linemen in the country in the ‘15 class. He’s already received 26 offers with USC and Clemson in that group. In fact, Clemson was one of the first seven or eight offers he received. Fruhmorgen’s father is a former Alabama OL and his teammates included Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and USC defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward. Next spring and summer father and son play to take a tour of the schools in the Southeast and USC and Clemson will be two stops. Some of his other offers include Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, UGA, Notre Dame, Louisville, Mississippi, Ohio State and California. Clemson has offered QB Jarrett Stidham (6-3, 190) of Stephenville, which was the fourth of the five high schools in Texas where Tiger offensive coordinator Chad Morris was head coach. Stidham played WR last season, but is now a fixture at QB. The Clemson offer was his 10th. “The Clemson offer is definitely a big deal,” Stidham said. “I kind of knew of Coach Morris (when he was at Stephenville), and I’ve kept up with his coaching. He’s had success pretty much everywhere he’s been. It’s pretty exciting. I’m pumped up about it. I’m really interested, not only in Coach Morris, but Clemson has had a great offense and a great program all around.” Stidham also has offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Texas Christian, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arizona State and Oklahoma State. He has been to games at Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor and A&M. He does not have any other visits planned, but would like to get to Clemson at some point. He does not have favorites and has no timetable for a decision. WR Jerad Washington of Jacksonville, Fla., has offers from USC and UNC. He has been committed to USC since July and was in for the Florida game. Washington has not taken any other visits. “Right now, it’s just South Carolina,” he said. He is hearing from Duke, Indiana, Wisconsin, Miami, FSU and FIU, but is calling the Gamecocks his leader. Basketball News: The early signing period started last week and Clemson signed 6-8 Donte Grantham of Hargrave Prep in Virginia and 6-2 Gabe Devoe of Shelby, N.C. Grantham was the player of the year in West Virginia last year. He decided

not to sign then and enrolled at the prep school for this season. He chose Clemson over Michigan, West Virginia and Cincinnati. Devoe also had offers from Marshall, Richmond, Xavier, Charlotte, Butler, VT and Tennessee Tech. Last season, he averaged 20 points, six rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. These are the only two signees expected for Clemson in the early signing period. USC signed both of its early commitments. Marcus Stroman, a 6-2 player from Keenan High in Columbia, is regarded as the top senior prospect in the state. He has been committed to the Gamecocks since July of ‘12. At that time, Clemson was his other offer, and he was also getting interest from VT, Tennessee and Auburn. And 6-5 TeMarcus Blanton of Locust Grove, Ga., committed to the Gamecocks in September over FSU, George Mason, Arkansas and Auburn. Charleston Southern signed four players, including Irmo High forward Javis Howard, who is rated as a top 150 player in the country. Two other South Carolina natives join him in the class in F Wesley Johnson of Eastside High in Taylors and guard Jarryd Coleman of Greenwood High. The Buccaneers also signed G Danny Upchurch of Fairfield, Conn. The Citadel signed 6-4 Jake Wright of Minnetonka, Minn. As a junior, he scored 474 points (16.3 ppg) while earning Most Valuable Player honors at the 2012 Augsburg Classic and 2013 MLK Classic All-Stars. The USC women signed three players last week Kaydra Duckett, a 5-10 player from Dreher High in Columbia, is ranked 32nd in the nation and sixth at her position in the ‘14 class, according to ESPN. The 5-star recruit is a 2-time allstate selection, and se earned MVP honors at the ‘12 state tournament as a sophomore, helping her team to the 3A championship. In ‘12-13, Duckett averaged 17.5 points, 2.3 assists and 3.4 steals. Doniyah Cliney, a 6-0 player from Newark, N.J., helped her high school team to a 33-1 record and the Group 2 State Championship last season, averaging 10.3 points and 1.9 assists en route to all-state honorable mention status. Cliney is rated as high as the No. 13 G in the Class of ‘14 by ProspectNation.com. And 6-4 Jatarie White of Charlotte is ranked seventh in the nation overall and the top center in the country after averaging 19 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals as a junior. White is a 3-time all-state selection who captured Gatorade North Carolina Player of the Year honors in ‘13, following former and future teammate Tiffany Mitchell’s award in ‘12.

A-Rod grievance hearing completed

HALL from Page B1 Carolina. “I want to thank Coach (Frances) McLaughlin (her coach at Hudgens) for nominating me. She was one of the first coaches to try and teach me anything.” Tommy Player, who was a standout athlete in track and field, football and basketball at Mayewood High School in early ‘60s, had his coach in attendance as well, E.M Watt. “What a humbling experience to be here with all of these super athletes,” said Player, a lawyer in Sumter who went on to play football and run track during his freshman year at USC/ Pinkney was a Shrine Bowl football player and a state champion in both wrestling and track for Sumter High. He went on to start for two years on the defensive front at USC and played for several teams in the National Football League. “I want to thank all of my coaches who pushed me so hard,” said Pinkney, himself now an assistant football coach and track coach at Sumter High. “Sumter is where home is. I’m enjoying working with these young men and helping them succeed. It means so much to me.” Noonan is the head coach at Wando High in Mt. Pleasant and was a fullback on the 1987 Sumter High football team that won the 4A Division I state title. He remembered fondly his days growing up in Sumter. “The Sumter community was just a great place to grow up, especially when it came to playing sports,” Noonan said. “Basketball was great, baseball was great, but it was football that fueled my fire. And I had a great youth coach, Bill Noonan (a fellow Hall of Fame member and former Sumter High head coach). Football fueled his fire too.” Compton didn’t coach or play sports, but he served as the team physician for football and boys and girls basketball at Sumter High from 1977-2000. “I just want to thank all of those coaches for letting me get to be a part of the world of high school athletics,” he said. “It’s just a different world than most of us are used to.” Evans was a standout middle infielder for SHS, the P-15’s and Wofford College in the ‘70s and served as the hitting coach for the P-15’s when they reached the American Legion World Series in both ‘06 and ‘08. He was also the sports editor of The Item for over two decades. Evans’ daughter, Kimberly, accepted the award on his behalf. Kinard, a former Clemson All-American and NFL standout who played at SHS, Singleton, a Shrine Bowl football player at Edmunds High who went on to gain fame in Judo in the United States Marine Corps, and Marshall, a University of Missouri All-American and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver who played at Hillcrest High in Dalzell, did not have anyone to accept their awards.

SHS from Page B1 winning streak. SHS hasn’t lost since a 28-21 defeat at the hands of South Florence, but the turnaround likely started the week before with a 30-17 victory over Richland Northeast. Since that game, the Gamecock defense has allowed an average of 14.6 points per game and has allowed more than 20 points just twice. Sumter was giving up an average of 30.6 points in the five games prior. The defense will have its hands full again this week.

BY RONALD BLUM The Associated Press NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez’s grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game suspension ended Thursday after 12 days of sessions, a day after the New York RODRIGUEZ Yankees third baseman angrily walked out and decided not to testify in his own defense. Rodriguez’s lawyers returned to Major League Baseball’s office for what turned out to be the final day of the proceeding before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. By the end of the day, both sides had rested their cases, a person familiar with the proceeding told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The next step is for the sides to submit briefs to Horowitz, which will complete the record. The arbitrator then will decide whether to sustain or alter the suspension given to Rodriguez by MLB on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of baseball’s drug policy and labor agreement. A three-time AL MVP, Rodriguez left in the middle of the 11th session Wednesday, furious Horowitz refused to order baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify. The move, followed by angry statements accusing Selig of bias and the entire arbitration process of flaws, appeared to be a prelude to a lawsuit challenging whatever ruling Horowitz makes.

After holding offensive powerhouse Mauldin to just 27 points, SHS takes on a Rams team averaging 41.3 points per contest. Hillcrest, who is 11-1 on the season, is led by all-purpose weapon Ki-Jana Madden who has 29 combined touchdowns. Madden has caught 12, rushed for 10 and returned kicks for seven. Madden and quarterback Collin Sneed (2,057 yards, 27 TDs) have combined to give the Rams a potent spread attack. “We know they have quick passes, quick screens like Mauldin,” Rock said. “We have to contain that and really just stay in our gaps. We have to make sure we play our assign-

ments and not play out of position. “We have to make sure we get pressure and (disrupt) things at the line of scrimmage. Bat the ball down. Everything.” Hillcrest is not a one-man team, however. The Rams have three other players who have 345 or more yards receiving and three players that have rushed for 245 yards or more. “You have to worry about the whole team, not just (Madden),” Rock said. “That’s why you have to stay disciplined and take care of what you’re supposed to do.” Sumter has also had a bump in offensive output the last seven games, averaging 30.6 per contest as opposed to 26 in its first five.

there, she continued to work through the clinical progressions and moved to the high performance clinic training with the PTC staff. PTC Director of Tennis Sam Kiser said he feels Coker will be a good fit for Mickey because it’s an up and coming program. In two years, he believes you won’t be able to recognize the left-hander’s game. “(Cobras head coach) Tom (Simpson) was a senior development in Hilton Head. He’ll be able to take a player like Suzanna — who has just tremendous upside potential — and develop her way beyond where she is now.” Mickey likes her chances to compete as a freshman at the lower end of the singles ladder in the Nos. 3, 4 or 5 positions. “I think the biggest thing is she’s really learned how to compete,” Kiser said. “She’s always hit the tennis ball really well, and a lot of people do that, but to figure out how to compete – what do I have to do to win?; what have I got to change? – and that’s where she’s figured it out. That’s probably what’s going to help her the most.”

“It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish,” Chatman said. “We’ve come together a lot over the season and we’re playing our best right now. We just have to be consistent. No three-and-outs. We have to start better than we did last week.” The Gamecocks got off to a slow start against Mauldin, falling behind 14-0, before a second-half surge put the game away. In order to have a better outing against Hillcrest, Sumter will have to find a way to put points up on a defense that is allowing an average of just 13.4 a game. A big way to breaking that trend will fall on Chatman’s and the offensive line’s ability to pick up blitzes.

“Our coaches do a good job of putting us in the right places at the right times,” Chatman said. “We run through their stunts in practice. We take them one by one and make sure we’re prepared. “I think we’ll be prepared to handle what they’re going to throw at us.” If the line is able to keep quarterback James Barnes upright, he will likely have man-to-man coverage on several occasions, opening the possibility for big plays. “I know Ky’Jon (Tyler), Xzavion (Burson), Jack Martin and Marquise (Moore) will be able to get open,” Chatman said. “We’ve got to score early and keep scoring.”

SKYHAWKS from Page B1 to Augusta Christian School 21-14 last season, the 2-3 start to Hammondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season had to be something of a shock to the system. Not only were there losses, but two of them were by shutout. The switch to a more run-oriented attack began when Nick Garrett became the primary quarterback, and T.J. Brady became a fulltime running back instead of playing some on defense. Garrett was supposed to split time with Davis King at quarterback, Garrett as the runner and King as the passer, but Garrett didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in the first three games. The offense has thrived under him as the Skyhawks have averaged 420.4 yards of total offense, 37.6 points and 278.1 rushing yards in their 8-game winning streak. Brady is the leader of the offense though. He has rushed for 1,813 yards and scored 180 points. He ran for 145 yards and two scores and caught four passes for 111 and another TD in Hammondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28-26 semifinal win over Orangeburg Prep last week. Garrett had 175

yards of total offense and two touchdowns in the game. While the points-pergame average numbers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t improved drastically for Hammond since the switch to the 3-4, it has certainly changed the way it approaches defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The change to the 3-4 causes us to initiate on defense rather than read and react,â&#x20AC;? Kimrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to give my defensive coordinator, Craig Farnsworth, a lot of credit for that switch. Our being more aggressive is a derivative of our change in scheme.â&#x20AC;? Kimrey knows his de-

fense will face a stiff challenge against Wilson Hall, which is 12-0 on the season. The Barons had 466 yards of total offense in the victory, and most of that came from quarterback William Kinney. Kinney completed 13 of 14 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 107 yards and two more scores on 12 carries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen as far as bringing overall assets to the table,â&#x20AC;? Kimrey said of Kinney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether they run it or throw it, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to them at all. He has the ability to make the big play offensively, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to pitch it on the option or tuck it and run; and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a great passer.â&#x20AC;? Kinney has completed 107 of 153 passes for 1,933 yards and 18 touchdowns and has rushed for 817 yards and 14 scores on 100 carries. In the earlier game, seven of Kinneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completions went to wide receiver Devin Singleton for 193 yards and two scores. Singleton, who missed several games due to injury, returned last week and caught three passes for 120 yards and one TD in the Baronsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 55-27 semifinal victory over Laurence Manning Academy. Kimrey isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised the Skyhawks will be playing on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What kind of team we are, we had to figure out

as coaches. Our players were patient as we figured out what worked and what didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? And what do the Skyhawks need to do on Saturday to get to the top of the mountain again? Nothing, according to Kimrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need to go and play football,â&#x20AC;? Kimrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Championship weeks are unique in their own way. Who knew last year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fumble five times and

lose all five, three of them inside the (ACS) 10-yard line. You just have to go out there and play, do your best and see what happens.â&#x20AC;?

THE ITEM

NBC returns to the tried and true with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Were You? The Day JFK Diedâ&#x20AC;? (9 p.m.), hosted by Tom Brokaw. For the majority of Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and potential viewers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the answer is: I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t born yet. This crucial fact doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deter NBC from plowing ahead with its nostalgic turn. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often told that the tragedy marked television newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coming of age. That may be true, but the wall-to-wall coverage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from that Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breaking bulletin of the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death to Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solemn funeral â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also contained the seeds of television newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; march toward decadence and irrelevance. As weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told hundreds, if not thousands, of times, TV did not merely provide news that weekend, but a kind of national vigil, a commonly shared experience of shock, grief and awe. If anything, it was the beginning of television news as national handholder and grief counselor. News was no longer about breaking bulletins, but the management of emotions. It was the beginning of a slide from Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite to Barbara Walters and Anderson Cooper. The advent of nonstop cable news outlets has turned every day into Nov. 22. Viewers can simply suspend themselves in news to the exclusion of all else. And most cable news stories emphasize feelings above facts. Local reports of missing teens, murdered spouses and children in peril become national fixations. Similar blanket coverage expended on celebrities

(O.J. Simpson, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, even JFK Jr.) and national tragedies (9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Iraq) focused on the personal and anecdotal over news gathering, sober analysis and what we used to call journalism. Now CNN and other networks ask us for our tweets and how we â&#x20AC;&#x153;feelâ&#x20AC;? about breaking stories. And we wonder why so many get their â&#x20AC;&#x153;newsâ&#x20AC;? from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Daily Showâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Colbert Reportâ&#x20AC;? and see news itself as a bit of a joke. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no denying the historical importance of Nov. 22, 1963. But when treated in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;where were you when?â&#x20AC;? vein, you can forgive the youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;uns (some as old as 49) for rolling their eyes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or turning the channel, or getting rid of the set, or having never subscribed to cable and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;newsâ&#x20AC;? it provides.
