COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Gov. Nikki Haley can watch the University of South Carolina Gamecocks from a free luxury football suite only if she is conducting state business, the State Ethics Commission decided Wednesday.The commissions advisory opinion is a revision from last September, when the board unanimously said the university can continue its longstanding practice of providing free tickets to the box to whoever occupies the governors mansion, calling it a gift to the office rather than Haley herself.While last falls opinion said state business -- such as courting company executives or hosting out-of-state dignitaries -- should be a priority for the 16 tickets, it allowed for personal use.A caveat we put in the opinion recognized that sometimes there wont be a big company youre trying to woo to South Carolina thats going to need these tickets, said agency attorney Michael Burchstead, referring to a paragraph that read, in part, we are not advocating for the tickets to go to waste.Commissioner Frank Grimball said hes concerned about weakening state ethics law thats specifically meant to limit lawmakers entertainment by lobbyists, especially since the suites perks include free food and drinks. He said others may take advantage of the exception.The issue is that the tickets value far exceeds legal limits on how much agencies that lobby state government can individually give elected officials. Those limits are $60 daily and $480 dollars yearly. State law provides an exception for events directly related to state or local economic development.I think our job is to protect the act, Grimball said. Why not direct the governor to follow the act?He cast the lone no for the revised opinion, which limits the boxs use to state-related purposes.Grimball called that wording too vague and argued unsuccessfully that the tickets should be used only for economic development.How much the gift is worth is unknown.USC spokesman Wes Hickman has said the university cant put a price tag on the tickets, provided for decades, because the governors office has a private suite on a level otherwise reserved for news media, the visiting athletic director and others who dont pay.Haley spokeswoman Chaney Adams said the governor personally attended two of six home games last year and three of seven in 2014.Like previous administrations, Adams said, Haley has used the suite for state business because theres no better way to showcase the great things going on in our state.Haley attorney Butch Bowers, who had no objection to the revised opinion, said the box is sometimes used for state business without Haley attending. But the governors office couldnt detail who has used the suite.The opinion is limited to Gamecocks football tickets. The school also provides the governors office four season tickets to mens basketball games.Clemson University, Haleys alma mater, provides the perk differently.Clemson board members and others individually provide the governor a football suite to the Tigers home games. Haley listed the worth of each of the 10 suites as $3,200 in her 2016 statement of economic interest, submitted in March. Officeholders are required to list gifts, their value and who gave them in the annual disclosure. Jeremy Jeffress Jersey . It just didnt show when he hit the ice.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Minnesota Twins just couldnt get the big hit they needed.The Twins loaded the bases in the second with none out and came away empty. They had runners on first and third with one out in the fourth, but failed to score in a 2-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals, who have won eight straight.We had our chances, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said. We just didnt, like Nate Diaz last night, he just didnt pop him when he had the chance.Diaz lost a decision to Connor McGregor in a UFC fight Saturday night.The Twins were shut down by Kansas City left-hander Danny Duffy, who won his 10th straight decision.The Royals swept a four-game series from the Twins for the first time since 1999 and have their longest winning streak since an eight-game run Aug. 3-11, 2014. The Royals have won 13 of 15 since the Rally Mantis showed up in the dugout.Duffy (11-1), unbeaten since June 6, improved to 5-0 with a 1.18 ERA in August. His 2.66 ERA ranks second in the American League, while his .917 winning percent tops the majors.Duffy left after 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run and a season-high eight hits while walking two and striking out four.You know, this a lot better game for us in terms of competing compared to yesterday (a 10-0 loss), but still we have fallen short in terms of taking advantage of opportunities, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. And when youve got your best pitcher going, those things can become huge.Duffy outpitched Twins right-hander Ervin Santana (6-10), who allowed two runs and five hits while striking out 10 and walking one over seven innings.Ervin had a really nice day, Molitor said. We didnt back him up particularly well defensively, but, he made some pitches to get off the field. He minimized as best he could. Not enough timely hitting and the defense needs to continue to improve. Ervin was as good as advertised.Santana has a 1.91 ERA in his past 11 starts after beginning the season 1-7 with a 5.10 ERA.The way hes been pitching the last few games, hes lights out, Santana said of Duffy. Hes doing his job. Hes doing what hes supposed to do. He just keeps everybody off balance. He just locates his fastball and his changeup. So, thats what makes him better today.Duffy worked out a no-out, bases loaded jam in the second inning with the help of aa couple of fielding gems.dddddddddddd After Eddie Rosario struck out, Alex Gordon made a sliding catch of Kurt Suzukis fly to shallow left. Third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert snagged Danny Santanas hard hit grounder and threw out Eduardo Escobar at second base.Hosmers two-out double in the sixth over the head of center fielder Rosario scored Lorenzo Cain, who had an infield single.Hosmer singled in the second, moved to third on Kendrys Morales double and scored on Alcides Escobars ground out for the first Kansas City run.Its terrible, man, Dozier said to be swept by the Royals. Were playing good, it seems like. These past four games weve always make that one mistake and against good teams like Kansas City, its not getting people in, bases loaded, nobody out, thats the ballgame.Robbie Grossman and Trevor Plouffe doubled in the third to produce the only run off Duffy.Kelvin Herrera pitched a perfect ninth to log his seventh save in nine chances.MOLITORS BIRTHDAYMolitor turns 60 Monday. Theres some plans being made for me, Molitor said. Ill be a willing participant. Itll be nice to have an off day and do some things with the family. But not celebrate, Im past that point.NO MAUER1B Joe Mauer, who is a career .326 hitter with 14 home runs and 111 RBI against the Royals, went 0 for 12 in the series and was not in the lineup Sunday. He grounded out as a pinch hitter in the ninth.SEEING THE LIGHTThe Twins recalled RHP Pat Light, who was acquired from Boston on Aug. 1, from Triple-A Rochester, where he had a 2.57 ERA in six outings. He appeared in two games for the Red Sox this season, giving up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: RHP Kris Medlen (rotator cuff inflammation) made a Saturday rehab start for Triple-A Omaha, allowing three runs and two hits, including a home run, and a walk in 1 2/3 innings against Nashville.
