.New income report finds that most Americans saw no gains in 2013

The latest report on American incomes shows families were just treading water amid a tepid economic recovery, with both incomes and the number of people living in poverty little changed from 2012 to 2013.  "My sense is, it's been really disappointing that, while we've had this recovery in terms of gross domestic product numbers and things like that, it hasn't translated to real income gains nationally or in South Carolina," said Donald Sparks, economics professor at The Citadel.

The Bulldogs also received 250 complimentary tickets for the 6 p.m. game.

..Prepare for the long haul, Iraq-Afghanistan veterans say

When Marine Corps veteran Andrew Kispert left the fight in Afghanistan for the last time in 2012 he was under no illusions that America's war with Islamic extremists was over. "It never crossed my mind that we were done - at all," said Kispert, 27, who is now enrolled as a day-student at The Citadel.

With President Obama scheduled to address the nation at 9 p.m. Wednesday to lay out his response to the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria, Kispert and two other veterans of the recent ground wars say their experiences forecast that the uprising is just a continuation of the radical mind set they previously fought against.
