8 Shaw Air Force officers reprimanded in sexual misconduct investigation BY BRADEN BUNCH bbunch@theitem.com Eight high-ranking officers at Shaw Air Force Base have been reprimanded by the

military after a six-month investigation into sexual misconduct complaints from a female airman protesting misogynistic work conditions both at the base and through-

out the military branch. Two colonels, four lieutenant colonels and a captain received either letters of counseling or more severe letters of admonishment, and two of

the lieutenant colonels were reassigned to staff positions. A fifth lieutenant colonel cited on allegations has since retired from active duty. Substantiated allegations

Battalion chief gives tips on fire safety

1 year passes since woman struck, killed at crosswalk

Barbara Harris is thankful her family is still alive. About 2 or 3 a.m. Monday morning, her mother and 18-year old son, Robert Smith, were awakened by the sound of a fire that started in the electric furnace in their mobile home. Harris said two of her sons live in the rented home, along with her mother and father. “My youngest reached into the furnace and removed the power source,” she said. Though Smith burned his hands, no one else was injured, and the fire went out. Harris said the smoke detectors did not go off. “If my 18-year-old son had not been there, my whole family could be dead,” she said. “Thank God my mom and my son knew about it. I am very thankful. It could have been bad,” she said. While Smith’s quick action may have saved property and lives, Battalion Chief Johnny Rose of the Sumter Fire Department advises against trying to fight fires yourself. “Call us. We are the trained professionals,” Rose said Thursday at Crosspoint Baptist Church. “It’s best to get out and call us.” With temperatures plunging

It’s been one year since a retired schoolteacher was struck and killed while crossing the street outside Tuomey Regional Medical Center, and her family and friends are still waiting for closure. Sumter police are still trying to identify the driver of the car that killed Jeanette Harrison on Oct. 25, 2012, while she was walking across East Calhoun Street on her way to visit a friend at Tuomey. The HARRISON driver then sped away, leaving the 70-year-old to die inside the hospital she had planned to enter only as a visitor. Investigators are still hoping someone will be able to provide them with the key information that leads them to identify the driver. “We have followed numerous leads; however, none have proven fruitful in identifying the person responsible,” said Police Chief Russell Roark. “We believe someone has the information to break this case, and we urge that person or persons to come forward, and do the right thing.” In an effort to keep the spotlight on the case, Staff Sgt. Tony Rivers with Sumter Police Department’s Traffic Division held a

Man, 23, accused of threatening to shoot woman during break-in BY BRISTOW MARCHANT bmarchant@theitem.com Sheriff ’s deputies have arrested a man accused of breaking into a woman’s home and threatening to shoot her in front of her young children. Rayshawn Jamal Morris, 23, of 710 Radical Road, was arrested Wednesday and MORRIS charged with first-degree burglary and criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. According to police, when a 23-year-old woman entered her

home in the 5200 block of Dubose Siding Road on Tuesday morning, she found Morris, the father of at least one of her children, inside the home. Morris had reportedly been sending her harassing text messages since the day before. The man reportedly attacked her by hitting her in the face and biting her shoulder, then pulled a black handgun on her and threatened to kill her. The woman reportedly had a 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter with her at the time. In an attempt to get away, the woman told Morris she needed to go pick up another child from her

cousin’s house, but Morris reportedly agreed to let her go only if she left the baby with him. Once she was out of the house, the woman called law enforcement. Deputies spoke to Morris at the scene, and he denied having a gun and accused the woman of making false allegations to get him arrested. Deputies agreed to give him a ride to a home in the 2900 block of Remington Drive. After Morris left the home, deputies searched it and reportedly located a black handgun inside a floor air vent. The deputy giving Morris a ride was contacted, and Morris was arrested once he arrived on Remington Drive.

2 students reportedly set off fireworks at middle school Two Bates Middle School students face disciplinary action and charges after they reportedly set off fireworks in a boys’ bathroom. About 8:20 a.m. Thursday, a loud noise was heard in the hallway, and the area filled with smoke, according to Shelly Galloway, spokeswoman for Sumter School District. Law enforcement was notified immediately, and the students evacuated the school. The initial investigation revealed two suspects, an eighthgrader and a seventh-grader, Galloway said. “Our top priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff,” she said. “We take all incidents very seriously and will involve law enforcement agencies in the investigation. This type of behavior is not tolerated, and students involved will receive swift and strong disciplinary action in accordance with the Sumter School District’s Code of Conduct.”

On Oct. 10, Wright was reportedly at a home in the 200 block of Lakewood Drive WRIGHT playing video games with a 12-year-old boy on the boy’s PlayStation 3, when Wright reportedly grabbed the boy by the neck and choked him until he lost consciousness. Wright then reportedly tried to carry off the PlayStation, valued at $300, until a witness in the home saw him with the device. He then reportedly fled from the scene, leaving the gaming console behind. When the boy regained consciousness, he was able to tell law enforcement what happened. The report does not note whether the victim received any medical treatment. Sheriff ’s deputies made contact with Wright, and warrants were later drawn up. He was taken into custody Wednesday.

Vice president says U.S. on cusp of mental health changes BOSTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that the country is on the cusp of what he called “remarkable changes� in the treatment of mental illness. Speaking at a forum on mental health to mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s signing of the Community Mental Health Act, Biden said the human brain is the new frontier for exploration in 2013. He said science is on the verge of “astounding discoveries� that could change how society cares for those with

mental illness. “It’s truly amazing what we don’t know, and it’s truly amazing what we might learn,� Biden said during a kickoff of the two-day forum at the Kennedy presidential library. “Imagine when we are able to identify the biomarkers for mental illness.� Biden said that ongoing research also holds promise for returning veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress. And as a result of President Obama’s health care law, he said, more people have access to care for mental illness because the law bars insurance

companies from denying coverage because of preexisting conditions such as bipolar disorder. Still, too many people suffering from mental illness fail to seek help even when there is treatment available, he said. Biden was joined at the forum by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island. Sebelius said work remains to be done to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness and its barrier to treatment.

Patricia Cassidy’s dog, Doodles, is seen right before his Sept. 9 death in Chattanooga, Tenn. Doodles is thought to be one of 580 dogs in the U.S. that have died in the past six years from eating poisoned jerky from China.

Mystery poison in treats killing pets BY SUE MANNING The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — All that’s left of Doodles are his ashes, a clay impression of his paw and a whole lot of questions owner Patricia Cassidy has about his mysterious death. Doodles is thought to be one of 580 dogs in the U.S. that have died in the past six years from eating jerky from China. Baffled by the cause and seeing another surge in illnesses, the Food and Drug Administration has reached out to owners and veterinarians to help it find the poison behind the sickening of at least 3,600 dogs and 10 cats since 2007. Within hours of eating the suspect jerky, pets lost their appetite, became lethargic, vomited and had diarrhea and other symptoms. The strips made of chicken, duck, sweet potatoes or dried fruit were sold under a variety of brand names. There was a decrease in 2007 after some products were voluntarily removed from the market, but the FDA said it didn’t want to conduct a recall without a definitive cause. Those products included Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky Treats and Chicken

Grillers, made by Del Monte, and Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch dog treats, made by Nestle Purina. But in the years since, the FDA has gotten complaints from pet owners and veterinarians who have seen repeated cases of kidney failure, gastrointestinal bleeding and a rare kidney disorder, the FDA said. The FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine has run more than 1,200

tests, visited pet treat manufacturing plants in China and worked with researchers, state labs and foreign governments but hasn’t determined the exact cause of the illness. Testing is complicated because the poison may have come from the manufacturing plant, shipping, transportation or anywhere along the way. Scientists have to know what they’re looking for to test for it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sarah Ball was a 15-year-old high school sophomore at Hernando High School in Brooksville, Fla., when a friend posted on Facebook: “I hate Sarah Ball, and I don’t care who knows.� Then there was the Facebook group “Hernando Haters� asking to rate her attractiveness, plus an anonymous email calling her a “waste of space.� And this text arrived on her 16th birthday: “Wow, you’re still alive? ImBALL pressive. Well happy birthday anyway.� It wasn’t until Sarah’s mom, who had access to her daughter’s online passwords, saw the messages that the girl told her everything. More young people are reaching out to family members after being harassed or taunted online, and it’s helping. A poll released Thursday by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV found incidents of “digital abuse� are still prevalent but declining somewhat. It found a growing awareness among teenagers and young adults about harm from online meanness and cyberbullying, as well as a slight increase

among those willing to tell a parent or sibling. “It was actually quite embarrassing, to be honest,� remembers Ball, now an 18-year-old college freshman. But “really, truly, if it wasn’t for my parents, I don’t think I’d be where I’m at today.� The survey’s findings come a week after two Florida girls, ages 12 and 14, were arrested on felony charges for allegedly bullying online a 12-year-old girl who later killed herself by jumping off a tower at an abandoned concrete plant. The AP-NORC/MTV poll found that some 49 percent of young people ages 14 through 24 in the U.S. said they have had at least one brush with some kind of electronic harassment, down from about 56 percent in 2011. Of those who have encountered an incident, 34 percent went to a parent, compared with 27 percent just two years ago. And 18 percent — up from 12 percent in 2011 — asked a brother or sister for help. “I feel like we’re making progress,� said Sameer Hinduja, co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center and professor at Florida Atlantic University. “People should be encouraged.�

Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 747 future is in doubt (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For decades, the Boeing 747 was the Queen of the Skies. But the glamorous double-decker jumbo jet that revolutionized air travel and shrunk the globe could be nearing the end of the line. Boeing has cut its production target twice in six months. Just 18 will be produced in each of the next two years. Some brand-new 747s go into storage as soon as they leave the plant. Counting cancellations, it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sold a single 747 this year until Korean Air bought five on Thursday. Boeing says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committed to the 747 and sees a market for it in regions such as Asia. But most airlines prefer newer two-engine jets that fly the same distance while burning less fuel. SEATS TO FILL

AP FILE PHOTO

The crew of a Pan Am Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet is seen in front the nose of the plane after it landed at Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heathrow Airport in England on Jan. 12, 1970. The 360-seat jet was the first of its kind to complete a transatlantic crossing.

Part of the problem is all those seats. A 747 can seat from 380 to 560 people, depending on how an airline sets it up. A full one is a moneymaker. But an airline that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fill all the seats has to spread the cost of 63,000 gallons of jet fuel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; roughly $200,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; among fewer passengers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also too big for most markets. There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough passengers who want to fly each day

between Atlanta and Paris, for example, to justify several jumbo jet flights. And business travelers want more than one flight to choose from. So airlines fly smaller planes several times a day instead. THE GAME CHANGER

The 747 once stood alone, with more seats than any other jet and a range of 6,000 miles, longer than any other plane. The plane was massive: six stories tall and longer than the distance the Wright Brothers traveled on their first flight. On the early planes, the distinctive bulbous upper deck was a lounge, so it had just six windows. The plane epitomized the modern age of international jet travel. International travel was mostly limited to those who could afford the pricy flights. The 747 changed that. The first 747s could seat twice as many passengers as the preferred international jet of the time, the Boeing 707. Long flights became more economical for the airlines. Ticket prices fell, and soon a summer vacation in Europe was no longer just for the wealthy. The planeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profile was enhanced by its role as Air Force One

and by flying the space shuttle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; piggyback â&#x20AC;&#x201D; across the country. The 747 became the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recognizable aircraft. IMPACT ON BOEING

Passenger airlines have ordered 31 747-8s, the current version of the plane. By comparison, airlines have ordered 979 of its smaller but ultra-fuel-efficient 787 Dreamliner. The cost is a factor. The 747 is Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most expensive plane with a list price of about $350 million, compared with $320 million for Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest 777. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Severalâ&#x20AC;? brand-new 747s have gone into storage, the company said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to balance production and delivery rates.â&#x20AC;? But Boeing says that slowing 747 production wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a significant financial impact. Boeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock hit an all-time high of $129.99 on Wednesday. It has gained 74 percent so far this year, more than four times the gain in the Dow Jones industrial average. Boeing has a backlog of some 4,787 planes, most of that orders for the best-selling 737. It has sped up production of the 737, as well as the 777, and plans to boost its output of 787s in 2016.

Health care siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failures surface at Hill hearing WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The leading contractors on the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubled health insurance website told Congress on Thursday that the government failed to thoroughly test the complicated system before it went live. Executives of CGI Federal, which built the federal HealthCare.gov

website serving 36 states, and QSSI, which designed the part that helps verify applicantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; income and other personal details, testified under oath before the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee. The contractors said they each tested their own components independently but that the

Health and Human Services department was responsible for testing the whole system from end to end. That kind of testing didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen until the last couple of weeks before the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oct. 1 launch. It quickly crashed once consumers tried to use it. Representing QSSI, Andrew Slavitt told the

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; come, all ye faithful...Be a part of this special section designed to let readers know about upcoming worship services, special musical programs, important anniversaries and more.

committee that ideally, end-to-end testing should have occurred well before the launch, with enough time to correct flaws. How much time? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Months would be nice,â&#x20AC;? Slavitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have loved to have months,â&#x20AC;? concurred CGI vice president Cheryl Campbell. The administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

determination to go live on Oct. 1 despite qualms about testing quickly became a focus of the hearing, which turned sharply partisan at times. Republicans, still committed to repealing Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law, approached the questioning with a prosecutorial tone, leading New Jersey Democrat Frank

Pallone to call the whole exercise a â&#x20AC;&#x153;monkey court.â&#x20AC;? The contractors did say the problems can and are being fixed daily, and they expressed confidence that uninsured Americans would have coverage by Jan. 1, when the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefits take effect, though they would not be held to a timetable.

OFFICERS from Page A1 of sexually offensive materials and allowing the consumption of alcohol during post-flight debriefings. While the identity of the officers and the complainant were redacted from the Air Force reports, it is thought the developments stem from the complaints of former Tech. Sgt. Jennifer Smith. Maj. David Faggard, director of public affairs for the 9th Air Force at Shaw, said that because of privacy issues, the Air Force would not be able to release the names of those involved. However, in a statement announcing the results of the

investigation, Faggard describes the complainant as a 17-year veteran of the Air Force who filed her complaint in October 2012. It was during this same month that Smith, a 17-year veteran assigned to Shaw, filed her formal complaint with the Air Force before publicly speaking with multiple national media outlets about her accusations. In fact, it is widely thought that it was Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public whistle-blowing that led to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Health and Welfare Inspectionâ&#x20AC;? in December 2012, ordered by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, at all Air Force bases worldwide. It was during this inspection that bases were to have any inappropriate posters, pictures and materials removed from the workplace.

In her complaint, Smith accused the Air Force of maintaining an atmosphere that made her and all other female airmen â&#x20AC;&#x153;persistently subjected to a hostile environment in which women are denigrated and mocked.â&#x20AC;? Throughout her complaint, Smith cited various incidents spanning her entire career, including her time with the 55th Fighter Squadron. Not only did this include finding pornographic materials both in print and electronic media in the workplace at Shaw, but also included several violent sexual assaults, including one occasion while on deployment with the squadron in Iraq during 2010. On several occasions by multiple ranking officers,

Smith said she was assured the offensive materials would be removed from the workplace, only for nothing to reportedly be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Air Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment is so exceedingly hostile to women that many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result,â&#x20AC;? Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint reads. After interviews with 200 witnesses and thousands of written pages reviewed, the Air Force said it was able to substantiate 14 allegations,

FIRE SAFETY from Page A1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2012, we had seven fire deaths â&#x20AC;&#x201D; five of them were seniors. So far we have had five deaths this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four of them have been seniors,â&#x20AC;? he said. Andrews Small Engine, 203 S. Main St., will replace kerosene heater filters at a discount rate for seniors, Rose said. Because of the difficult economic times, people are bringing out old kerosene heaters that may have been in storage for years, he said, which have caused about 20 fires this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they bought them, they threw away the instructions,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t real-

resulting in the letters being placed in these high-ranking officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; permanent records. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This can significantly hinder an individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opportunities for promotion or advancement,â&#x20AC;? Faggard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although it might look like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a minor thing, written administrative actions, like UIFs (Unfavorable Information Files), they have longterm effects on an officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career progression.â&#x20AC;? Faggard also stressed the seriousness the Air Force placed in the allegations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In light of the allegations, Air Force leaders at all levels took decisive steps to reinforce standards and sustain an environment of trust, respect and professionalism,â&#x20AC;? he said. Reach Braden Bunch at (803) 774-1201.

IF THERE IS A FIRE If you experience a home fire, be prepared. â&#x20AC;˘ When the smoke alarm sounds, get out of bed and stay low to the floor. â&#x20AC;˘ Feel the door. If it is cool, open it slowly and get to the nearest exit. If the door is warm or hot, follow your alternate escape route. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not stop to collect valuables or pets. Most pets will find their own way out. â&#x20AC;˘ If you are unable to leave your room, call the fire department, and be sure to tell the dispatcher that you are trapped. Then you can try to seal the door with wet towels, duct tape, etc. â&#x20AC;˘ When you get out, stay out. Never re-enter a burning building. Source: Alert-all Corporation

ize that there is a filter that needs to be replaced every year.â&#x20AC;? Rose said wood fireplaces also need some attention before they

are used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make sure the chimney is clean; you could have an animal nest in your chimney. Around here we can have squirrels, mice or even raccoons nesting up there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are professionally trained, and can also inspect the condition of the chimney. Sometimes the mortar cracks, and you could have a fire getting in your attic.â&#x20AC;? Wayne Bradham of Bradham Heating and Air Conditioning said when it comes time to fire up home heaters, most of the work should be left to professionals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Changing filters is pretty much the only thing people should do,â&#x20AC;? he said.

HARRISON from Page A1 press conference Thursday on the sidewalk outside Tuomey, near the spot where the wreck occurred. “It tugs at your heart strings because she was on the way to visit with a friend that morning,” Rivers said. Witnesses to the fatal collision described seeing a dark-colored, newer-model mid-sized sedan hit Harrison at 7:30 a.m. in the crosswalk north of the hospital campus as she was heading into the day surgery entrance. The car was traveling eastbound from Washington Street and continued on to Main Street without slowing down. The driver of the vehicle was described by witnesses as a white female between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, and police later released a sketch of the suspect in hopes someone would recognize his or her vehicle. “The one responsible has been carrying the guilt of their actions for a year now,” Roark said. “Coming forward will be the first step to easing their burden and the burden of the victim’s family.” Officers hope the anniversary of Harrison’s death will give the driver another chance to search his or her conscience and decide if he or she can live with

SAFETY TIPS The Sumter Police Department offers the following tips when approaching a pedestrian crosswalk: • Vehicle operators should reduce speed or stop to allow pedestrians to clear the roadway before proceeding through. • Pedestrians should utilize crosswalks and obey pedestrian “walk/ don’t walk” signals while attempting to cross the roadway. • Pedestrians should not cross until they are sure that vehicle operators acknowledge their presence and slow down or stop to yield the right of way to them before proceeding across the street.

what happened. “I’m sure that’s a heavy burden to carry around for a year,” Rivers said. “They can come in and talk to us, take a load off their chest and provide some closure for the family.” Harrison retired from teaching elementary school with Sumter School District 17. She left behind a husband, an adult son and daughter and three grandchildren. Her youngest grandchild was born three months after Harrison’s death. Police are continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Sumter police at (803) 436-2700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (2746372). Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.

FREDDIE SOLOMON FIELD DEDICATION

Greatness came to Solomon in Sumter BY DENNIS BRUNSON dennisb@theitem.com

ITEM FILE PHOTO

Sumter running back Ky’Jon Tyler, center, and the rest of the Gamecocks still have aspirations of hosting a home playoff game. A win over Carolina Forest at Memorial Stadium tonight would be a step in the right direction towards that goal.

Still within reach

Freddie Solomon had a tremendous football career at the University of Tampa. It saw him set NCAA rushing records for a quarterback that stood for several years and a senior season that SOLOMON landed him sixth in the Heisman Trophy balloting even though he was playing for a Division II school. He moved on to the National Football League, a second-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 1975. He went on to have an outstanding 11-year career, achieving fame as a starting wide receiver on San Francisco 49er teams that won the

Super Bowl in 1981 and ‘84, respectively. He caught 371 passes for 5,846 yards and 48 touchdowns during his career, most of them coming from Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana in the original West Coast offense. He ran for touchdowns as well as returning kickoffs and punts for scores. He was a mentor to one Jerry Rice, the greatest wide receiver in NFL history. Rice’s rookie season was Solomon’s final season, and one of Solomon’s jobs that final year was to groom Rice for playing wide receiver in the NFL. One has to think Solomon played a part, however small, in Rice’s rise to stardom. While he was an outstanding player both in SEE SOLOMON, PAGE B4

Gamecocks still have goals intact BY DENNIS BRUNSON dennisb@theitem.com Reggie Kennedy senses a bit of excitement from his first Sumter High School football team, sees a little gleam in their eyes that perhaps wasn’t there a few weeks ago. “They’re starting to get a little taste of winning, and they can see KENNEDY that things are starting to come together,” Kennedy, the Gamecocks head coach, said.

Elliot feels O-line has tall task ahead BY WILLIE T. SMITH III Greenville News COLUMBIA— South Carolina co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Shawn Elliott believes the Missouri defensive line is impressive, very impressive. “I think this is the best (defensive) ELLIOTT line I’ve seen on tape in a long, long time,” said Elliott. “They rival LSU from a year ago. They’re quick. They’re fast. They’re relentless. Just based on their stats alone, they scare you. You don’t have to put them on the film.” Led by Michael Sam, SEE USC, PAGE B3

SEC SHOWDOWN

WHO: (21) South Carolina (5-2, 3-2 SEC) at (5) Missouri (7-0, 3-0 SEC) WHERE: Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri WHEN: 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 TV/RADIO: ESPN 2, WIBZ-FM 95.5, WNKT-FM 107.5

Now the winning for SHS is still a bit on the modest side; victories in two of their last three games and the loss a 28-21 decision to a still undefeated South Florence team. However, it leaves Sumter with a 3-5 overall record and a 1-1 mark in Region VI-4A. And with region games at home against Carolina Forest today and Conway next week, the Gamecocks can secure second place in the region and a home game in the first round of the Division I state playoffs. That would be a major change for a team that was just 1-4

three weeks ago. “We’ve told the guys that we’re down to a 3-game season,” said Kennedy, whose team concludes its regular season with a home game on Nov. 8. “They’ve done a lot of work, and we’re at a point where they can be part of something special. There’s a lot of stuff that we set as goals -- a winning season, making the playoffs, playing a home game -- that’s still out there for us.” SHS will be going against a Carolina Forest team that is 1-7 SEE SHS, PAGE B4

Cards even series, win 4-2 BY BEN WALKER The Associated Press BOSTON — A Matt Carpenter sacrifice fly and two ensuing Boston errors in the top of the seventh helped the St. Louis Cardinals grab a 4-2 lead over the Red Sox as they held on to win Game 2 of the World Series in Boston on Thursday. For a full recap, visit our website at www.theitem.com. Boston led the series 1-0 after an 8-1 victory on Tuesday. The Red Sox were trying for their 10th straight Series win. David Ortiz had given Boston a 2-1 lead in the sixth with a 2-run homer against Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. Wacha had extended his scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings — a record for a rookie in a single postseason —

Gators look to slow Red Foxes’ rushing attack BY JUSTIN DRIGGERS jdriggers@theitem.com For most of the night, the Lakewood High School football team had no answers for Darlington’s passing combination of quarterback Shakeem Thomas to wide receiver Tra’Quan Dubose. The duo combined for five touchdowns as the Falcons earned a 36-14 victory over the Gators to drop them to 2-6 overall PARKS and 0-4 in Region VI-3A. “We just did not defend the pass well at all,” LHS head coach Perry Parks said. “We gave up way too many big plays in the passing game. “I thought our overall effort was

there, though, and we did a good job against the run.” That might be a silver lining as the Gators prepare to host defending 3A state champion Hartsville today at 7:30 p.m. at J. Frank Baker Stadium. The Red Foxes’ top two rushers – Brian Rivers and Shy McPhail – have combined for 1.400 yards and 18 touch-

downs. “They run the Wing-T to perfection,” Parks said. “They’re very disciplined in what they do.

SHANGHAI — The only three Americans in the 78-man field were easy to find Thursday in the BMW Masters. Just look at the top of the leaderboard.

SERIES from Page B1 home run of this postseason and 17th of his career. Dustin Pedroia drew a one-out walk and, with the Fenway Park crowd on its feet, Ortiz hit a full-count changeup over the wall in left-center field for a 2-1 edge. Ortiz acknowledged his faithful fans, emerging from the dugout for a curtain call. It was just Boston’s third hit off Wacha, the 22-year-old who had been dominating every team he’d faced in October. Wacha slammed his glove onto the bench when the inning ended. Red Sox starter John Lackey worked around four hits in slowing the Cardinals. He pitched a day after turning 35 — it was his first Series start since 2002 when, as a rookie for the Angels, he beat Barry Bonds and San Francisco in Game 7. Matt Holliday lined a leadoff triple into the oddly configured triangle in center field in the fourth and scored on Yadier Molina’s chopper. The Cardinals’ 1-0 lead marked the first time they’d been ahead of the Red Sox in October for quite a while. Boston never trailed while sweep-

FAVRE DISMISSES JOINING RAMS

ST. LOUIS— Brett Favre dismissed the possibility of returning to the NFL with St. Louis, and Rams coach Jeff Fisher declined to address reports he tried to lure the quarterback out of retirement to replace the injured Sam Bradford. Favre told Washington sports station WSPZ-AM he doesn’t feel physically able to compete and expressed fear that he has been affected by concussions. AAC TEAM TO PLAY IN BOWL

MIAMI — The Miami Marlins’ home run sculpture will become a touchdown sculpture

NFL LONDON GAMES SET IN ‘14

LONDON — The Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins will travel to London next year to take part in the NFL International Series, the league announced Thursday. The NFL will hold three games at Wembley Stadium in 2014, with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders as the designated home teams.

ing St. Louis in the 2004 Series, and was ahead from the beginning Wednesday night. Carlos Beltran started for the Cardinals in right field, returning from an injury that forced him out of the opener. Beltran exited in the third inning and went to a hospital, shortly after bruising his ribs when he rammed into the short bullpen wall while taking away a grand slam from Ortiz. Both teams made changes to their lineups. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny benched shortstop Pete Kozma after making two errors in the opener and put Daniel Descalso in his place. Jarrod Saltalamacchia replaced David Ross as Boston’s catcher. The teams are off Friday, and resume with Game 3 at Busch Stadium on Saturday night. Boston starter Jake Peavy makes his Series debut against Joe Kelly. After the Cardinals played a most sloppy game in the opener, Wacha restored early order to the NL champions. The right-hander flashed a 95 mph fastball and a diving changeup while holding Boston hitless until Jacoby Ellsbury’s broken-bat bloop single with two outs in the third.

Lester, Red Sox rout sloppy Cards in Series opener BY BEN WALKER The Associated Press BOSTON— An easy toss on a sure out that skittered away. A routine popup that somehow dropped between Gold Glovers. And something even more startling — umpires reversing a key call. Most everything fell into place for the Boston Red Sox in the World Series opener. Mike Napoli hit a three-run double right after a game-changing decision in the very first inning, Jon Lester made the early lead stand up and the Red Sox romped past the sloppy St. Louis Cardinals 8-1 Wednesday night for their ninth straight Series win. A season before Major League Baseball is expected to expand instant replay, fans got to see a preview. The entire six-man crew huddled and flipped a ruling on a forceout at second base — without looking at any video. “I think based on their group conversation, surprisingly, to a certain extent, they overturned it and I think got the call right,” Boston manager John Farrell said. David Ortiz was robbed of a grand slam by Carlos Beltran — a catch that sent the star right fielder to a hospital with bruised ribs — but Big Papi later hit a

two-run homer following third baseman David Freese’s bad throw. The Red Sox also capitalized on two errors by shortstop Pete Kozma to extend a Series winning streak that began when they swept St. Louis in 2004. Boston never trailed at any point in those four games and coasted on this rollicking night at Fenway Park, thanks to a hideous display by the Cardinals, It got so bad for St. Louis that the sellout crowd literally laughed when pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina, who’ve combined to win six Gold Gloves, let an easy popup drop untouched between them. Serious-minded St. Louis manager Mike Matheny didn’t find anything funny, especially when the umpires changed a call by Dana DeMuth at second base. “Basically, the explanation is that’s not a play I’ve ever seen before. And I’m pretty sure there were six umpires on the field that had never seen that play be-

fore, either,” Matheny said. “It’s a pretty tough time to debut that overruled call in the World Series. Now, I get that they’re trying to get the right call, I get that. Tough one to swallow,” he said. DeMuth said he never actually saw Kozma drop the ball. “My vision was on the foot. And when I was coming up, all I could see was a hand coming out and the ball on the ground. All right? So I was assuming,” DeMuth told a pool reporter. There was no dispute, however, that the umpires properly ruled Kozma had not caught a soft toss from second baseman Matt Carpenter on a potential forceout. That’s what crew chief John Hirschbeck told Matheny. “I just explained to him ... that five of us were 100 percent sure,” Hirschbeck said. “Our job is to get the play right. And that’s what we did.” “I said, ‘I know you are not happy with it, that it went against you, but you have to understand that the play is correct,’” he said. The normally slick-fielding Cardinals looked sloppy at every turn. Wainwright bounced a pickoff throw, Molina let a pitch trickle off his mitt, center fielder Shane Robinson bobbled the carom on Napoli’s double and there was a wild pitch.

Tigers vs. Gamecocks is SEC’s big matchup BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A look at five things to watch in the Southeastern Conference during Week 8 of the season: GAME OF THE WEEK

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Missouri running back Henry Josey, right, has helped balance the Tigers’ offense with 494 yards rushing as they prepare for Saturday’s showdown against South Carolina.

Josey back to helping Mizzou BY JAKE KREINBERG The Associated Press COLUMBIA, Mo. — A hush fell over Missouri’s Memorial Stadium with 5:17 remaining in the third quarter last Saturday. In an otherwise raucous 36-17 romp over Florida, all anyone suddenly cared about was Henry Josey’s health. The running back lay writhing on the ground, eerily reminiscent of when he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and patellar tendon two years ago. That led to a missed season and months of painstaking rehabilitation, all potentially undone by another fateful twist of his knee. Josey knows how his original injury felt, and as trainers tended to him Saturday, he gradually realized this one

wouldn’t be as serious. The biggest challenge, he said, was getting over his initial shock and getting up to jog off the field — which he did. “He was scared to death,” coach Gary Pinkel said. More than a few teammates and coaches felt the same way. The No. 5 Tigers (7-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) likely wouldn’t be undefeated without Josey’s team-leading 494 rushing yards. Missouri averages 234.4 yards rushing, good enough for second in the SEC. The 5-foot-10, 190pound junior paces Missouri’s trio of running backs, as sophomore Russell Hansbrough has 438 rushing yards and junior Marcus Murphy has 357. But Josey became the team’s only option Saturday after injuries to Hansbrough (turf

USC from Page B1 the Missouri defensive line has accumulated 14 sacks in the last three games. That could prove unsettling for USC quarterback Connor Shaw who will be getting his first start of the season. There is good news for the Gamecock offensive line, which has played at a high level for most of the season – the return of return of senior guard Ronald Patrick, who missed the Tennessee game with a high ankle sprain. “Anytime we have a problem running the ball and I’m on the sidelines knowing I could be in there helping,” said Patrick. “It really hurts me a lot. But, I’m definitely going to make up for it. “It was tough sitting on the bench when I thought I could help my team,” Patrick said. “But I was at about 40 percent (in Knoxville). I couldn’t go. If I felt the way (he did on Wednesday) I would have played. I will be in there

toe) and Murphy (concussion) earlier in the game, making the situation more tenuous. All three are expected to play this week against No. 20 South Carolina (5-2, 3-2). Josey’s faith causes him not to worry about re-injuring his knee, though his latest scare was an “eye-opener.” He only blames himself for what happened on Nov. 12, 2011, saying it was karma for having taken too much in life for granted. “Personally, I learned a whole lot from my injury,” he said. “And just the way I was going about things. And then how I was living life. (God) showed me what was important to me. And took it away from me. And now I have it back. I don’t take anything for granted anymore.”

this week.” The game is important for South Carolina, which needs a win to maintain any hope of claiming the Southeastern Conference East Division title. The 20th ranked Gamecocks are 5-2 overall, including 3-2 in SEC play, while fifth ranked Missouri is 7-0 overall and 3-0 in league play. “Their athleticism,” Patrick said when asked about the strength of the Missouri line. “They use their hands well. They are quick getting off on the ball. They have a great scheme. But we’re preparing for it.” With Thompson under center, there is a good chance the Gamecocks will attempt to run SEC leading rusher Mike Davis more than usual., which is fine with the line. “We just love run blocking,” said Patrick. “We’ll run block. We’ll pass block. It’s fun. You kind of wear them down when you are running the ball. That’s the goal. Anytime you’re running the ball, you’re trying to wear them down. That’s what we do.”

No. 20 South Carolina at No. 5 Missouri. In a development that no one saw coming at the beginning of the season, the Tigers could basically wrap up an Eastern Division title with a win on Saturday in Columbia, Mo. The PINKEL upstart Tigers have had three straight impressive victories over Vanderbilt, Georgia and Florida and now face the Gamecocks. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says, “Our players are SPURRIER aware of one thing, and that is keep playing and good things are going to happen. That is where our focus is at.’’ BEST MATCHUP

Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews against Texas A&M’s porous defense. The No. 16 Aggies can score with the best of them, but their defense has been terrible for most of the season. In four SEC games, Texas A&M has surrendered more than 41 points per game. Vanderbilt’s Matthews could exploit those problems on Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 206-pound senior has caught 58 passes for 798 yards and five touchdowns for the Commodores, who are coming off a big win against Georgia. INSIDE THE NUMBERS

Alabama has held its opponents to 10 points or fewer 46 times since

coach Nick Saban took over the program in 2007. Texas A&M is the only team to exceed 10 points against Alabama this season. ... After Saturday’s upset of South Carolina, Tennessee coach Butch Jones now is 43-2 in his career when leading at halftime. ... Mississippi (4-3) has played the toughest schedule in the country according to Jeff Sagarin’s computer rankings. The Rebels have lost to No. 1 Alabama, No. 11 Auburn and No. 14 Texas A&M while beating No. 13 LSU, Texas, Vanderbilt and Southeast Missouri. LONG SHOT

Tennessee is a 28-point underdog against top-ranked Alabama and has lost each of its last three meetings with the Crimson Tide by 31 points, but the Volunteers head into Tuscaloosa with momentum after beating South Carolina and scaring the heck out of Georgia in their last two games. There aren’t many potential upsets on the schedule this week with LSU, Auburn and Mississippi facing overmatched non-conference opponents, so we’ll be keeping an eye on whether Tennessee can keep this game close. PLAYERS TO WATCH

South Carolina QB Dylan Thompson and Missouri QB Maty Mauk. These two backup quarterbacks will square off against each other Saturday, though both have starting experience. Thompson is stepping in for Connor Shaw, who sprained his left knee last week at Tennessee. Mauk threw for 295 yards and led Missouri past Florida last week in his first career start in place of James Franklin, who has a sprained right shoulder.

Boyd not letting FSU loss linger BY PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press CLEMSON— Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd isn’t giving up on the season, no matter how bad the ninthranked Tigers looked against No. 3 Florida State last week. Boyd and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney watched every play of the Seminoles 51-14 beatdown, acknowledging everything from glaring breakdowns to the tiniest errors in footwork. When the session was over, Boyd was ready to get himself and the Tigers offense cranked back up for the regular season stretch run, which starts Saturday at Maryland (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). “We kind of look at this as the job and you want to go out there and perform,” Boyd said this week. “You’ve got to be accountable for your actions out there. Whether it’s studying more or just performing more, you’ve

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd (10) will try to bounce back this weekend against Maryland after accounting for several turnovers in the Seminoles’ 51-14 rout of the Tigers.

got to make sure you get it done.” Boyd was atop the college football world — and several Heisman Trophy lists — after the Tigers (6-1. 4-1) outlasted Georgia 38-35 to start the season in August. Since then, it’s been a series of ups and downs for the fifth year senior, none of which cost Clemson until last week. Boyd threw two interceptions and his fumble on a sack made for any easy scoop and score by Florida State’s Mario Edwards Jr. for a 17-0 lead in the first quarter. Boyd finished with 156 yards passing, his second worst showing since he became Clemson’s fulltime starter before the 2011 season. Most disappointing,

Boyd said, was the Tigers not bouncing back after halftime trailing 24-7 and still with a chance to recover. But “things just didn’t go the way we wanted them to and it snowballed from there,” he said. Clemson’s fast-paced attack has struggled at times this season. The Tigers needed second-half rallies to defeat North Carolina State (26-14) and Boston College (24-14), relying on defense more than a consistently strong offense to grab victories. Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris was blunt about the blame, saying right tackle Brandon Thomas was the lone starter playing at a consistently high level.

EC looks to shore up tackling

SHS from Page B1 overall and 0-1 in the region. The Panthers played their first region game last week, losing to South Florence 59-0. CF has struggled defensively all season, allowing an average of 51 points a contest, having been outscored 408-177. The fewest amount of points it has allowed came in its only victory, 41-35 over Myrtle Beach. Whether Sumter can have a big game offensively today is open for debate. The Gamecocks have been very inconsistent on offense, at times looking great and at other times looking terrible — all in the same game. SHS is coming off a 16-0 victory over West Florence. Nine of those points came from the left leg of Vincent Watkins with three field goals. “We were able to sustain some drives last week, and that’s a good thing,” Kennedy said. “I’d prefer to get six (points for a touchdown), but I’ll take three if we can’t get that. We’d get close and then struggle, and I think that comes from having an inexperienced offensive line. We’re still looking for that right combination; we’ve been moving people around, trying to get them in the right spots.” Quarterback James Barnes has completed 93 of 185 passes for 1,343 yards and 13 touchdowns against seven interceptions. His favorite target has been Ky’Jon Tyler, who had 44 catches for 730 yards and 10 scores. Russell Jenkins leads the rushing attack with 385 yards and three scores on 101 carries. While the offense may have struggled, the same can’t be said for the defense. Prior to the shutout over West Florence, Sumter allowed just two offensive touchdowns to South, which returned two kicks for scores and started a scoring drive at the Sumter 18-yard line following a shanked punt. Kennedy said the play of his front seven has been the biggest reason for the defensive improvement. “They’re doing a great job against the run right now,” Kennedy said. “We’ve been able to make teams one-dimenional and get them in a lot of third-(down)-and-long situations. The secondary has been playing better too. We haven’t been giving up the long pass or the big play like we were.” Carolina Forest’s offense is led by junior quarterback Will Brunson. He has thrown for over 2,100 yards and 21 TDs so far. “He’s got a big arm, and they’’ve got a big offensive line,” Kennedy said. “They are the kind of team that scares you because you don’t know which team it is until you get out there on the field.”

The biggest issue in East Clarendon High School’s 40-39 varsity football loss to previously winless C.E. Murray last Friday was tackling, head coach Dwayne Howell said. “They didn’t do anything fancy; they only ran two or three plays,” he HOWELL said. “But we just didn’t tackle well. We had six or seven guys around the ball at times and they found a way around it and scored.” That’s something the 4-4 Wolverines will most assuredly have to correct for today’s 7:30 p.m. matchup against Region VII-1A leader Carvers Bay at Shad Hall Field. The Bears are 7-1 overall and 3-0 in the region thanks to last week’s 12-0 win over Hemingway. EC’s loss to the War Eagles dropped the Wolverines to 1-2 in region play with their toughest two opponents still on the schedule. “Carvers Bay is by far the best team we’ll have played all year,” Howell said. “They’re extremely big up front. They run some finesse, but they’re mostly a power running team and that’s when they’re the hardest to beat – when they line up in the I-formation and come right at you.” EC will have to try to stop the Bears’ vaunted rushing attack with fewer players than normal. Lineman, noseguard and long snapper Zac Coker is done for the season along with offensive lineman Tyler Baker. Both were injured in the loss to C.E. Murray

college and the NFL, Freddie was the greatest football player at Sumter High School, and some will argue to this day, the greatest high school football player in the history of South Carolina. Freddie Solomon became Freddie Solomon before the eyes of Sumter and the state of South Carolina in 1970. His senior season at Sumter High School was a truly remarkable one and is the reason the field at Sumter Memorial Stadium will bear his name after a dedication ceremony today beginning at 6:30 p.m. prior to SHS’ game against Carolina Forest. It wasn’t the raw numbers that Solomon posted that made that season so special, even though 1,969 yards rushing, 28 touchdowns and 182 points scored in just 12 games was a pretty amazing feat. What made that season

PREP FOOTBALL ROUNDUP along with running back Savontai Hall, who had 135 yards rushing through the first half. “We’ll line up with maybe 22 (tonight),” Howell said. “That’s not an excuse, though, because we have to line up and play. I was happy with practice this week from our kids. They were more aggressive with their approach and with their tackling. “As long as they are trying and I can see improvement, I can’t ask for anything else.” LAKE CITY AT LEE CENTRAL

With two weeks remaining in the season, the Stallions still have shot at the Region VII-2A title. Lee Central is 4-4 overall but 2-1 in the region — a game behind 3-0 Timberland. A win over Lake City (1-7, 1-2) tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Bishopville would set up a de facto region title game against the Wolves next week at home. The Stallions have alternated wins the last four weeks, including a 30-15 victory over Kingstree last Friday. In its two losses, LCHS scored a combined 14 points. In their two wins, the Stallions averaged 30 points. Lake City has had offensive struggles as well. The Panthers have been outscored 269-89 this season. SCOTT’S BRANCH AT HEMINGWAY

The Eagles are 1-7 overall and 0-3 in Region VII-1A after last Friday’s 49-0 loss to Timmonsville. It was the fourth time this season Scott’s Branch has been held scoreless and the second week in a row. The Eagles wrap up a tough 3-game region schedule today at

Hemingway. The Tigers are second in the region at 2-1 and 7-1 overall with their only loss coming last week against Carvers Bay. Hemingway has outscored opponents 215-95 this season while the Eagles have been outscored 397-40. ROBERT E. LEE AT FLORENCE CHRISTIAN

The 3-6 Cavaliers sit at the No. 4 spot in SCISA Region I-2A at 2-2, but have a tough road test against region leader Florence Christian. The Eagles are 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the region. A win over REL would secure the first region title in school history for FC. The Cavs will have to find a way to stop Eagles running back Gordon Washington, who has rushed for 100 yards or more in seven straight games. FC has outscored opponents 305-142. REL has been outscored 232-140, including a 27-14 loss to Calhoun Academy last week. CLARENDON HALL AT FAITH CHRISTIAN

The Saints have rattled off three straight victories thanks to last week’s 38-8 victory over Pee Dee Academy. Clarendon Hall sits at 5-3 overall and 3-3 in SCISA 8-man Region II. The Saints travel to Summerville today for a non-region matchup against Faith Christian. The Knights are 2-6 overall after last Friday’s 46-42 loss to James Island Christian. The Saints are averaging 327.4 rushing yards per game led by Tilton McCrea’s 788 and Dustin Way’s 750. The duo has combined for 17 rushing touchdowns.

so exciting was the sheer exhilaration that Solomon’s presence brought to each and every game. People went to the games to cheer on their Gamecocks, no doubt, but the anticipation of what Freddie might do on that particular night brought a different air to the crowd. He had sheer speed where if he got an opening he’d be gone in a split second, but his quickness allowed him to dart around the field with defenders diving here and there, often to no avail. Freddie would often run 50 yards to pick up 20; what a 20 yards they would be.

Among that list are senior defensive end Andrew White and senior offensive lineman Andrew Kluessner. “We’re banged up, but so is everyone else and that’s not an excuse,” Parks said. “We’ve got guys who’re going to have to step in and perform if we want to be competitive.” A bigger issue might by going up against Hartsville’s defense.

I was a novice sports fanatic that season, 9 years old and still trying to figure out a lot about the games I loved. I went to a few Sumter High games that year and one thing that it didn’t take long for me to figure out was that Freddie Solomon was a special football player. What makes this dedication even more appropriate is the fact that Solomon, who passed away last year at the age of 59 from cancer, was as special of a person as he was a player. Thanks for the memories, Freddie, both on and off the field.

points all season. The Gators’ offense has struggled in the red zone at times this season, including last week against the Falcons. Roderick Charles ran for the only two Lakewood scores, but it could have been more, Parks said. “We move the ball well, but we just sputter in the red zone,” he said. “We’ve got to do a better job of punching the ball in, especially against a team like Hartsville. “We also need to keep moving the chains and keep drives going. You want to hold on to the ball and fight for a close win.” The Gators have scored 20 points or less in four straight games – all losses – and are averaging 16.3 points a game this season.

Gamecocks pick up Florida QB commit Q home in Fayetteville, N.C. Defensive end Andrew Williams of McDonough, Ga., was at Clemson on Saturday for the Florida State game for an unofficial visit. Clemson is one of his final six schools. The others are USC, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Mississippi and Auburn. Another uncommitted senior prospect at Clemson on Saturday was DL Cory Thomas of McCalla, Ala. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to Clemson, Mississippi State, Florida, Tennessee and FSU. Senior wide receiver Trevion Thompson of Durham, N.C., was also at Clemson on Saturday. He has had Clemson among his favorites along with Ohio State, FSU, North Carolina State, North Carolina and West Virginia. Also showing up at Clemson Saturday was uncommitted senior defensive back Marlon Humphrey of Hoover, Ala. Alabama, FSU and Mississippi State have been his favorites. Shrine Bowl WR Tyshun Samuel of Chapman High School is continuing his knack of finding the end zone this season. Through seven games, he had 15 TD catches, 29 receptions in all, and 609 yards. He had 20 touchdown catches last season. Samuel has no new offers to add to his list of Vanderbilt, UNC, NCSU, Maryland, Charlotte, East Carolina, Old Dominion and Appalachian State. The only game heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been to this season was the Vandyt at USC contest where he talked some with his Gamecock recruiter, Shawn Elliott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rush to commit, just see what happens,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard from USC. He does not have any plans set for other visits right now. Vandy and UNC remain his two favorites. Shrine Bowl DL Zeek Rodney of South Pointe High in Rock Hill was offered by Syracuse last week. He also has offers from Boston College, South Carolina State, Charlotte, Louisiana Lafayette, Marshall, App State, Toledo and Ball State. Two of his official visits are set with Marshall and BC. DL Quaven Ferguson of Easley High has committed to Duke. He also had an offer from Furman and was drawing interest from Georgia Tech. Juniors: Offensive lineman Zack Bailey of Summerville High made his second trip of the season to Clemson on Saturday for the FSU game. He also was on hand for the Georgia game. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not been to any other games this season, but plans to be at the Florida-USC and Clemson-USC games, and he hopes to get to Oregon and GT. Bailey said his top five schools right now are USC, Clemson, UGA, Oregon and

FSU with no order, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still considering others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oregon has been coming on strong of late,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said. He hears regularly from USC and Clemson, saying the Gamecocks, in particular, are working him hard along with Clemson and FSU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talk to (assistant) Coach (Everette) Sands and Coach Elliott pretty much every day,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said while adding that he gets regular mail from Clemson has talks with recruiters Tony Elliott and Robbie Caldwell about every other week. Bailey wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a decision until his senior season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still looking at a lot of schools,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to rush anything.â&#x20AC;? USC is in an early battle with Penn State for junior OL Ryan Bates of Warminster, Pa. Bates has nine offers in all and has the Gamecocks and Nittany Lions at the top of his list. He visited over the summer and wants to make it back down to Columbia. Bates has taken just one visit this season when he was at PSU for the Eastern Michigan game. His offers are from USC, PSU, Virginia, Rutgers, Temple, GT, Maryland, Pittsburgh and BC. Other schools are Phil showing a lot of KORNBLUT interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a lot from Notre Dame, Stanford and Syracuse,â&#x20AC;? Bates said.

DB Rashard Causey of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has an impressive offer list right now made up of USC, ND, Florida, FSU, Miami, UCLA, Mississippi State, Rutgers, Central Florida, WVU, Arkansas, Tennessee, Vandy and NCSU. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting offers soon from Louisville and Wisconsin. He has not formulated a top five, but when he does, he knows one school that will be on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;South Carolina will always be in my top five,â&#x20AC;? Causey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like South Carolina. Their playing style is amazing and I love their defense. One of my closest friends, (linebacker) Skai Moore, plays for them and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushing me hard to go there.â&#x20AC;? Causey saw the Gamecocks in action when they played at UCF earlier in the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are somewhat similar (on defense) to what we do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like I could have a big impact as a freshman there. As soon as I step on the campus, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to have an impact on that defense. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I feel about it.â&#x20AC;? He added that USC, Miami, Arkansas, ND and UCLA are recruiting him the hardest at this point. He has also been to Miami for a game. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to USC for a game, but recruiting corner

uarterback Michael Scarnecchia (6-foot4-inches, 192 pounds) of Fleming Island, Fla., committed to South Carolina on Sunday, becoming the QB for the Gamecocksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2014 class. Scarnecchia also had an offer from Alabama-Birmingham and was drawing interest from Syracuse, Arkansas State and some Ivy League schools. Scarnecchia attended one of USC head coach Steve Spurrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camps this past summer and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the interest in Scarnecchia began to grow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Spurrier saw me in camp and really liked me,â&#x20AC;? Scarnecchia said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was at the Kentucky game and after the game I sat down with him and he said he was thinking about an offer and he liked my film. He came through with the offer the week after the Arkansas game.â&#x20AC;? Scarnecchia said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that familiar with USC as a school, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liked what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been told by family and friends. As for the football, he is familiar with what the Gamecocks like to do on offense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They run a pro spread and Coach Spurrier is one of the best quarterback coaches youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get,â&#x20AC;? he said. Scarnecchia said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s around 1,000 yards passing with 18 touchdowns and one interception while completing 65 percent of his attempts this season. As a junior, he passed for 1,500 yards and 19 TDs with three INTs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m coachable and throw the ball well with a strong arm,â&#x20AC;? Scarnecchia said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Spurrier said I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached my potential and he really wants to work with me.â&#x20AC;? Scarnecchia said Spurrier did nearly all of the recruiting with him though he talked some with area recruiter Steve Spurrier Jr. He is USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14th commitment for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;14 class. USC defensive lineman commitment Abu Lamin of Fort Scott Junior College in Kansas insists heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100 percent with his commitment to USC, calling the strength of the pledge a 10 on a scale of 10. However, Tennessee, Alabama and Auburn continue to recruit him. Lamin has one official visit opportunity left and said last week heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll decide in a week or two if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it. Right now he said that visit likely would go to Tennessee. Lamin said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in weekly contact with USC talking with Spurrier and assistant Deke Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re telling me they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait till I come in and work and get in the system,â&#x20AC;? said Lamin, who is playing the noseguard and three technique this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strong, firm commitment.â&#x20AC;? Lamin has not been to USC this season. He said he may try to get there over the Thanksgiving weekend when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

plans to visit in the offseason. A decision will come in his senior season, maybe on his birthday of Sept. 20. WR Michael Bowman of Havelock, N.C., plans to be at the USC for the Florida and Clemson games. Bowman is considered one of the top prospects in North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;15 class and has USC and NCSU as his top two with no current leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I camped down there (USC) this summer and I liked the atmosphere,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the Black Magic camp and I learned a lot. I work on the things I learned there every day. It seems like it would be a pretty cool place to play.â&#x20AC;? He speaks with USC coaches regularly and said the Gamecocks are showing a lot of interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just like how I get open and think I can make plays,â&#x20AC;? Bowman said. His other visits this season have been to NCSU and UNC. The Florida and Clemson games in Columbia are the only two games he plans to attend the rest of this season. Tight end Jackson Harris of Nashville, Tenn., and his family spent the weekend at Clemson for the BC game, his first visit with the Tigers. Jackson has also been to Ohio State and Vandy and will go to FSU, Tennessee, UK, UGA and Alabama. He has offers from Clemson, FSU, Vandy, GT, UK, Mississippi State and Memphis. Jackson does not have favorites. WR Akilian Butler (5-11, 180) of Mesquite, Texas, was offered by Clemson recruiter Chad Morris last spring along with his teammate QB Chason Virgil, and the two were at Clemson for the FSU game. Butler said he runs a high 4.4 (seconds) 40(-yard dash) and sees similarities in himself to Tigers WR Sammy Watkins. Last season, Butler caught 32 balls for over 400 yards and three TDs. He has five TD catches so far this season. Clemson is Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone offer at this point, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also hearing from ND, UGA, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas A&M. He was at the Texas-Oklahoma game and has also been to Baylor and Texas. Butler does not have favorites right now. Some other top junior prospects at Clemson on Saturday included linebacker Justin Hilliard of Cincinnati, DB Kaleb Chalmers and WR Markeyvious Adams of Greenwood High, QB Lorenzo Nunez of Kennesaw, Ga., athlete Kelly Bryant of Wren High in Greenville, DB Rion Davis of A.C. Flora in Columbia, OL Mitch Hyatt of Suwanee, Ga., WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside of Dorman High in Roebuck, DL Albert Huggins of Orangeburg-Wilkinson High, TE Austin Barnes of Daniel High in Central, DE Mekhi Brown of

Columbus, Ga., who is committed to Alabama, QB Anthony Ratliff of Matthews, N.C., WR Juval Mollette of Randleman, N.C., and DB Mark Fields Jr. of Cornelus, N.C. Sophomore QB Jawon Pass of Columbus, Ga., also was at the game. OL Brian Chaffin of Charlotte got a chance to see USC play for the first time when he attended the Vandy game in Columbia. Chaffin took the visit with his parents and all three enjoyed the atmosphere of Williams-Brice Stadium. Chaffin met with USC assistant Elliott during the visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just asked me how things were going and told me they will continue to evaluate me,â&#x20AC;? Chaffin said. Chaffin has visited NCSU, Wake Forest and Duke as well and has plans to take several more visits this season. He has offers from Mississippi State and Charlotte with interest from USC, Clemson, UNC, NCSU, WF, Duke and ECU among others. Chaffin does not have any favorites. Running back Rocky Reid (6-0, 210) of Concord, N.C., had rushed for 1,692 yards and 19 TDs going into his game last Friday. He said that rushing figure leads the state of North Carolina. Not only is Reid burning up gridirons in the Tar Heel state, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wearing out the highway between his home and Clemson. Reid made his third visit to Clemson for the BC game and planned to be back for the FSU showdown. Reid has talked with head coach Dabo Swinney and RB coach Elliott, but so far has no hint of an offer. He has offers from Charlotte and Ohio and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also getting interest from UNC, Duke, WF, UGA, Arkansas, Ohio State and ECU. Duke is the early leader for QB Will Brunson of Carolina Forest High in Myrtle Beach. He is hearing from USC, Clemson, Duke, Tennessee, UK, Virginia Tech, ECU and UNC. Duke, however, appears to be courting Brunson the hardest. Brunson has visited several schools, including USC and Clemson and was in Columbia for the UK game. He plans to attend the Tennessee-Vandy game as well as the UNC-Duke game. Through seven games, Brunson had thrown for 2,061 yards and 21 touchdowns. Basketball News: Cameron Jackson, a 6-7 player from Winchester, Va., has committed to Wofford. The Clemson women picked up a commitment from 5-9 Chanelle Perry of Camden, N.J. Perry also plays for the Philly Freedom Stars AAU program. Perry scored over 1,000 points as a junior and was second team all-state. She was the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ninth leading scorer. Perry is the fourth commitment for the Lady Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;14 class.

CHARLOTTE — NASCAR will require baseline concussion testing for its drivers starting next season. NASCAR had only recommended the testing this season, but indicated to drivers that a preseason baseline screening could become mandatory as early as 2014. The baseline test will be compared with O’DONNELL test results taken after a driver has crashed to help diagnose a concussion. “NASCAR made this decision because we think it is important to drivers’ health for doctors to have the best information and tools available in evaluating injuries,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR vice president of racing operations. Drivers were informed of the mandate during a Thursday meeting at the R&D Center in Concord with top NASCAR officials that lasted nearly two hours and covered a variety of topics concerning 2014 changes. The baseline testing

NASCAR will mandate baseline concussion testing BY JENNA FRYER The Associated Press

at www.williamsfuneralhomeinc.com. Services directed by the management and staff of Williams Funeral Home Inc.

will be performed through the widely used neurocognitive assessment ImPACT test, which evaluates an athlete’s verbal and visual memory, processing speed and reaction time. “Before announcing this rule, we provided drivers concussion and baseline testing education and created opportunities for them to ask any questions they may have to a top neurosurgeon that specializes in traumatic brain injuries,” O’Donnell said. “ImPACT tests are not new to our sport and have been used for treatment through the years.” O’Donnell said in February that NASCAR had identified 32 concussions in its top three national series since 2004, including three in 2012. One suffered by Dale Earnhardt Jr. forced NASCAR concussions into the spotlight. Earnhardt was injured in a crash during an August 2012 tire test at Kansas, but didn’t seek treatment for a mild concussion. His stubborn streak instead kept him behind the wheel, and he was then part of a 25-car pileup in October at Talladega that triggered lingering headaches and other recognizable warning signs.

Qualifying overhaul may come in ‘14 BY JENNA FRYER The Associated Press CHARLOTTE — NASCAR told its competitors Thursday it is considering eliminating singlecar qualifying next season in an overhaul that would likely implement road course-style qualifying at all but two tracks. Drivers from all three national series met with top NASCAR officials for almost two hours at the R&D Center in Concord to discuss several different ideas

under consideration for 2014. The only thing officially announced by NASCAR was that it will mandate baseline concussion testing for drivers starting next season. But series officials also outlined THARP potential changes to qualifying procedures everywhere except Daytona and Talladega. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the field

would likely be set at Daytona and Talladega with an “open qualifying session” that would allow for a 60-minute drafting session. “It’s not written in stone at this point in time,” Tharp told The Associated Press. “We just talked about some ideas that would make things more interesting. Today was an opportunity for us to talk to the drivers about ideas, and I’m sure other ideas will come up over the next few weeks.”

‘Dracula’: Drinks red, thinks green BY KEVIN MCDONOUGH

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2013

Would Vlad the Impaler drive a Prius? The new “Dracula” (10 p.m., NBC, TV-14) seems to think so. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars as the ancient undead count in this handsome reinvention of the oft-told horror classic. Here, he’s reawakened in the late Victorian era and brought to London, where he poses as a brash, rich American upstart. To the public, he’s an inventor and tycoon hoping to revolutionize industry and domestic life with a new form of electricity. Based loosely on the theories of Nikola Tesla, he promises to transmit energy through the air without need for wiring. His real mission is to destroy the fledgling oil industry, the source of money and power for an evil cabal that has existed for centuries and is responsible for burning Dracula’s beloved at the stake and locking him in a casket for several hundred years. Jessica De Gouw stars as the fetching Mina Murray, a spitting image of Dracula’s old flame. The plot to “Dracula” is overstuffed with ideas and obvious metaphors. We have the myth of Tesla; oil monopolies as a symbol of world-devouring evil; legions of vampires, vampire hunters and vampire “seers”; and conspiracies galore, tales of ancient guilds seeking to maintain total control as a new illuminated age takes shape. Even the Jack the Ripper story shows up, tossed off as a cover story to hide the existence of vampire activity. The story and the setting may remind some of the 2006 drama “The Prestige,” or of any num-

ber of British miniseries seen on “Masterpiece.” As with “Hannibal,” NBC showcases an hourlong drama with an international cast as well as a slightly imported feel. “Dracula” is co-produced with the U.K. channel Sky Living. Will viewers be seduced? Some might find this “Dracula” just too sexually explicit, others too violent. While the ancient vampire appears to play well with mortals when he has to, he frequently resorts to ravishing poor and unattended young women when the thirst strikes him. And those assaults look as much like rape as murder. That alone may be enough to break “Dracula’s” spell. • The supernatural detective series “Grimm” (9 p.m., NBC, TV-14) enters its third season tonight. Are we witnessing the return of original scripted programming on Friday nights? ABC airs two first-run sitcoms, CBS has two dramas and now NBC invites viewers to check out two gothic series. Friday night frights have a good track record. A show called “The XFiles” had a long run here.

The only Carrie on television who still matters appears on “Homeland.” • The past seven days reviewed on “Charlie Rose: The Week” (8:30 p.m., PBS). • A routine patrol goes awry on “Hawaii Five-0” (9 p.m., CBS, TV-14). • “The Simpsons” (Fox, r, TV-PG) repeats Halloween specials from last week (9 p.m.) and last year (9:30 p.m.). • Fans discuss the importance of an artist’s work in the 2013 documentary “Springsteen & I” (9 p.m., Showtime, TVPG). • A hero and a washout join forces in the sixpart adventure “Strike Back: Origins” (10 p.m., Cinemax, TV-MA).
