2. Morris Robinson stars in Opera Philadelphia's 'Turandot'
Growing up in Atlanta the son of a Baptist minister, Morris Robinson says one of his earliest memories was singing in church. "I got a lot of applause but didn't take it seriously. To me, singing was just something to do. Nobody thought of it as a viable profession." But over the years he's changed his mind and made quite a name for himself, no longer singing in church but singing opera on stages all over the world. He's now preparing for the role of Timur in Opera Philadelphia's new production of Puccini's "Turandot" at the Academy of Music, through Oct. 2. Before concentrating on an operatic career, while in high school, what Robinson did take seriously was his ability to play football. His prowess on the field led to a full football scholarship to The Citadel, the military college in South Carolina. An offensive lineman, he was voted All-American three times but didn't get a spot with the NFL because, he says with a laugh, "I was too small. Today, I'm opera big but NFL little." And so, after graduation, Robinson took a job in corporate sales, doing quite well but missing his music, which he had kept up with. So one day, while working in Boston, he applied to Boston University's Opera Institute and was accepted with a full scholarship. This meant Robinson might actually become an opera singer someday - something he knew little about.

1. Crew memoirs among highlights in Citadel
Matterhorn: The operational history of the XX (20th) Bomber Command and its combat missions from India and China in 1944 and 1945 traces the development of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress program. The book, written by a professor of political science at The Citadel, explores plans by the Allied Forces of World War II to stage long-range bombers through China in order to strike Japan's strategic industries. Matterhorn was written by Terry Mays, Ph.D., who has been teaching at The Citadel since 1992. Matterhorn examines the 49 combat missions flown by the XX Bomber Command from India and China, producing the first detailed history of the B-29 campaign flown from these countries. The book is written almost exclusively from primary source material including original World War II documents, crew member memoirs, and personal interviews. Special sections within the book examine issues related to flying across the aerial military supply route between India and China known as "the hump"; Gen. Curtis LeMay's reorganization of B-29 operations; and the night fighter defense of the B-29 forward airfields in China. Mays received his Ph.D. in international studies from the University of South Carolina. He is a U.S. Army/Army Reserve retiree with 30 years of service. Mays is also the author of 12 books including Night Hawks and Black Widows: 13th Air Force Night Fighters in the South and Southwest Pacific, 1943-1945. His other books cover the American Revolution in addition to multinational peacekeeping. In 2009, Mays earned the highest level of formal certification offered in the field of United Nations Peace Support Operations through the Peace Operations Training Institute.

3. Veterans attend Citadel game
On Saturday, Sept. 10, the Colleton County Citadel Club hosted veterans and assisting staff from the Veterans Victory House at a tailgate event prior to the Citadel vs. Furman football game. The veterans arrived by bus to a standing ovation of a cadre of cadets, Citadel alumni and friends of The Citadel. They were then escorted by cadets to their place of honor under the Citadel Club's tent where a meal of grilled chicken and "all the sides one could imagine" was offered. After the meal, the vets were again escorted by cadets to Johnson Hagood Stadium and a place of honor in the stadium. The vets were treated to an aerial salute as they watched the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachuting team deliver the game ball to the center of the field from high above. The vets' night concluded as they watched The Citadel Bulldogs defeat the Furman Paladins by a score of 19 to 14. "This was a very special event that was orchestrated by The Veteran's Victory House, The Citadel Brigadier Foundation, The Citadel Athletic Department and all of the good people in the Colleton County Citadel Club," said Citadel Club member Lee Petrolawicz.

5. Gwinnett police turn to upstate New York to recruit officers
It's no secret that the Gwinnett County Police Department, like many agencies across the country, is struggling to hire and retain new officers. Since 2011, Gwinnett County has seen a net loss of 66 officers and, just last month, chief Butch Ayers reported that his department had hired 65 officers in the previous year — but lost 75, whether it be to retirement, to better-paying city agencies or other reasons. Given the country's current climate, it's also harder to find new recruits, officials have said. With that in mind, GCPD is expanding its recruiting efforts across the Southeast - and into upstate New York. The department announced Friday that representatives will visit the Williamsville, New York, campus of SUNY-Erie Community College in late October, hoping to find a few good officers through an in-depth recruiting expo. They're hoping history is on their side, too - similar efforts in the late 1990s netted several "dedicated and loyal employees," GCPD spokeswoman Cpl. Michele Pihera said. Upcoming Gwinnett County Police Department recruiting events - Oct. 12: The Citadel; 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

6. Custer's First Last Stand
Jim Stempel is the author of seven books, including military nonfiction, historical fiction, spirituality, and satire. His articles have appeared in numerous journals including North & South, Concepts In Human Development, and the New Times. He is a graduate of The Citadel, Charleston, South Carolina, and lives with his wife and family in Western Maryland. His latest book is the novel, Windmill Point, where he brings to life the dramatic story he relates here... Almost every American school kid is familiar with the story of Custer's Last Stand, that infamous day in June, 1876 when George Armstrong Custer divided his cavalry force into three parts, then foolishly led one of those small contingents against an enormous Lakota Sioux village camped on the banks of the Little Bighorn River in what was then the eastern portion of the Montana Territory. Custer failed to perform even the most rudimentary reconnaissance of his adversary that day, and managed to get himself, two of his brothers, his brother-in-law, a nephew, not to mention the rest of his command, slaughtered as a result. Almost everyone is familiar with that story. But what many people are unfamiliar with, is that during the Civil War, that same, rash George Armstrong Custer had managed to put himself and his entire outfit into exactly the same predicament - getting his Michigan brigade cut off and surrounded by Confederate cavalry to the point that, had not timely reinforcements broken through to his relief, Custer's entire force might well have been destroyed.

1a. The President of The Citadel, Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, to receive Chief Executive Leadership Award
Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa has been selected to receive the Chief Executive Leadership Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III, which represents nine Southeastern states. The award will be presented during the CASE District III Conference on Feb. 7 in Nashville, Tennessee. Rosa received the award because of his keen focus on strategic initiatives that will enhance The Citadel's mission of developing principled leaders. A key emphasis for Rosa has been keeping a Citadel education relevant in the 21st century while holding to the values that make the college unique. Since Rosa's tenure as president began, The Citadel has increased the size of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and completed a $100 million capital campaign - two benchmarks of a vibrant institution. "President Rosa exemplifies the finest qualities of leadership - inspiring with vision and encouraging innovation, leading the institution to higher levels of success and supporting all aspects of institutional advancement - that CASE III is proud to recognize through its Chief Executive Leadership Award," said CASE III Board Chair, Kris Phillips. "He has led The Citadel with distinction for more than 10 years, challenging the entire campus community to address some difficult issues all while championing and building institutional morale and pride," continued Phillips.

2. Mother inspired N.J. teen to join local fire department
Kim Sargenti may not have finished from high school yet, but she did graduate from the Morris County Fire Academy this summer, paving the way for her to continue a life of service inspired by her school and family. Sargenti, a 17-year-old senior at Oak Knoll in Summit, took part in a four-week course held at the fire academy in Morristown, according to a news release. It included drills often while wearing more than 50 pounds of gear, as well as class work. She joined the Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company in Tewksbury Township as a junior member in September of 2015, and will be a full-fledged member of the company later this fall when she turns 18. She graduated from the academy on Aug. 22. Sargenti said she joined the department partly because of her mother's prior service as a paramedic. "She wanted me to experience the same life-changing service she had," Sargenti said. "She also knew I loved to volunteer for the community." Sargenti she she and her academy classmates bonded, and she values the lessons they learned together. "I will always remember my class motto: 'The Desire to Learn, The Determination to Excel, The Ability to Succeed, The Valor to Serve,' and use it as my backbone in life," she said. Sargenti said she is seriously considering attending The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina or the Virginia Military Institute, as well as other colleges and universities with ROTC programs.

5. For Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen, clutch is nothing new
The southern rasp in Lyman Guy's voice spikes when the conversation shifts to Dominique Allen. He pauses for moment, thinking back on his former quarterback, before enthusiastically starting again. "Well, you remember the touchdown he threw against Florida State, don't you?" Allen's high school football coach asks rhetorically. "And when they beat South Carolina? "That kid, he's got it. He understands it. He's a natural leader and he's comfortable in those situations. It's the fruits of his leadership and labor. And he's been doing that since Day 1." Allen has been a paradox of sorts for The Citadel this season. Not a starter but certainly a finisher. The past two weeks the junior quarterback has led game-winning touchdown drives in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against both Furman and Gardner-Webb. He's directed the late-game rallies like a poised, third-year veteran. But he's yet to start a game for the Bulldogs this season.

Contrasting coaching situations were discussed at Thursday's meeting of the Orangeburg Touchdown Club at The Cinema. South Carolina State head football coach Buddy Pough spoke of his team's 0-3 start on the road against three Football Bowl Subdivision programs, including last Saturday's 59-0 shutout loss at No. 5 Clemson. After Pough spoke, he introduced first-year Citadel head football coach Brent Thompson, who is 3-0 and enjoying his first bye week as a college head coach. "I think everybody knows that Clemson is pretty good," Pough said with a smile. "I guess when they get through playing Georgia Tech and then get ahold of that Louisville team in a week or so, we'll get a better understanding of what the ACC is all about this season. "It's all a blur for us now, with this recent three-game stretch. Now we need to show some actual improvement with the way we've played and get after our league (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), starting with Florida A&M in Tallahassee this Saturday."

1a. President of The Citadel, Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, to receive Chief Executive Leadership Award
Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa has been selected to receive the Chief Executive Leadership Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education(CASE) District III, which represents nine Southeastern states. The award will be presented during the CASE District III Conference on Feb. 7 in Nashville, Tennessee. Rosa received the award because of his keen focus on strategic initiatives that will enhance The Citadel's mission of developing principled leaders. A key emphasis for Rosa has been keeping a Citadel education relevant in the 21st century while holding to the values that make the college unique. Since Rosa's tenure as president began, The Citadel has increased the size of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and completed a $100 million capital campaign -- two benchmarks of a vibrant institution. "President Rosa exemplifies the finest qualities of leadership - inspiring with vision and encouraging innovation, leading the institution to higher levels of success, and supporting all aspects of institutional advancement - that CASE III is proud to recognize through its Chief Executive Leadership Award" said CASE III Board Chair, Kris Phillips. "He has led The Citadel with distinction for more than 10 years, challenging the entire campus community to address some difficult issues all while championing and building institutional morale and pride" continued Phillips.
