1. Citadel veteran student becoming a leader in the computer science program
A veteran student at The Citadel is working on a way for people who witness a crime or a dangerous situation to help alert others nearby via their smart phone. Patrick Ayres is now working on the final stages of an award winning app he designed called Crime Watch, to make it a functioning, downloadable, crime-fighting mobile application that is available to the public for free. He's looking to take Crime Watch to the next stage after being awarded two prizes in the 4th annual Mobile Application Development Competition. The contest was held in late 2014 and Ayres' app was awarded top prize, as well as the Attendee Favorite prize. The 2014 competition was organized by the Charleston Defense Contractors Association and included an award of $3,250, which Ayres can now put toward further developing Crime Watch.

2. Regional education report shows achievement gaps among tri-county students
High-performing Lowcountry students continue to make academic gains during their educational careers while those students who aren't doing as well are falling further behind. That was the takeaway from Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative's first annual Regional Education Report unveiled Thursday during an event at Charleston Southern University. The collaborative is a group of business, education and nonprofit officials focused on improving educational outcomes for students in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties. About 85 area leaders attended the event, including the superintendents for all four local school districts and the presidents of Charleston Southern University, Trident Technical College and The Citadel. Charleston County School Board Chairwoman Cindy Bohn Coats, Berkeley County School Board Chairman Kent Murray, Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page, Charleston City Councilman William Gregorie and Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler also were among those who attended.

6. Out in the "Styx:" William W. Moore and the SCNG's First Home
One of the more recent exhibits at the South Carolina Military Museum covers the early development and history of the South Carolina National Guard. Following the Militia (or Dick) Act of 1903 - which abolished militias in favor of the National Guard model-all states had to rethink their military roles and missions. For South Carolina, no one played a more important part than Major General William W. Moore. Moore, an 1888 graduate of The Citadel, ascended to the Office of the Adjutant General in 1910. He replaced Brigadier General Jackson C. Boyd who died in office while also serving as the State's Inspector General.

7. Hillsboro's Big Bottom Whiskey renamed Big Bottom Distilling, debuts first in-house spirit
You won't find a company named Big Bottom Whiskey in Hillsboro any longer. Fans of blended bourbon need not fret. It's because the independent bottler is now operating as a distillery. The newly renamed Big Bottom Distilling announced in a Tuesday-night Facebook post that its first in-house distilled product, dubbed Oregon Gin, would hit liquor stores this week. The gin/s release comes just months after the debut of what owner Ted Pappas called the company's "flagship product," an American blended whiskey called Barlow Trail. Like many of Big Bottom's other offerings, the gin is 91 proof - a tribute to Pappas' class of 1991 at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

8. Plenty of Lehigh Valley connections to previous Super Bowls, NFL title games
Pennsylvania, and the Lehigh Valley in particular, has always been a region where sports have been taken seriously. At one time it was a "way out" for young scholastic athletes to go to college on a scholarship or to sign a professional contract so that they did not have to follow their fathers into the mines, mills, quarries and factories of our area. What Pro Football Hall of Famer as a coach, commissioner and owner is connected to Allentown's Charles Eby and Henry Miller, Northampton's Carl Wunderler, Slatington's Roy and Maury Schleicher, Catasauqua's Mike Bundra and Whitehall's Matt Millen? Al Davis. Al Davis was born in Brockton, Mass., and grew up in Brooklyn. He went to Wittenberg and Syracuse and became an assistant coach at the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., in the mid-1950s and later at USC from 1957 to 1959. Like other national collegiate coaches, Davis knew the Lehigh Valley as fertile recruiting grounds and his first stop was always Allentown High School.

The woman, identified only as Mother Doe A, claimed ReVille never would have molested her son and caused the family emotional distress if The Citadel had not covered up his crimes while he was a camp counselor there several years earlier, so the school owed her damages for her suffering.

The Super Bowl is a game of numbers, from the Roman Numerals that denote each contest to the millions of people and billions of dollars that are engrossed in it each year. Given the societal importance of the Big Game, the emphasis it places on social media, and the fact that it's a global symbol of capitalistic extravagance, it only makes sense for WalletHub - the first social network built from the ground up around personal finance - to audit the figures that make the game tick.

1. South Carolina's mid-major schools fuel athletics with student fees
Each Citadel cadet will shell out a student athletic fee of $2,392 this year, money that helps fund intercollegiate athletics at the military school. That's almost a quarter of a cadet's total in-state tuition and fees, and enough money to purchase 26 season tickets for football under the school's young alumni plan. At College of Charleston, each undergraduate and graduate student will have to come up with $1,210 this year to fund Cougar athletics. That's 11.5 percent of in-state tuition and fees and enough to buy 12 season tickets for basketball under the Cougars' young alumni plan.

2. Abolish West Point - and the other service academies, too
Most Americans are familiar with the prestige that surrounds the United States military service academies. Various names and phrases, spoken like solemn incantations, attest to their sacrosanct status: the Point, the Long Gray Line, Annapolis, cadets. Their graduates constitute a who's who of American greatness, including Ulysses Grant, Jimmy Carter, novelist James Salter and sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein, to name a few. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, in a 1962 address at West Point, typified the veneration when he told the cadets that they were "the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense."

Although all of the local schools - College of Charleston, The Citadel or Charleston Southern - will have to wait another day to open practice for the 2015 season, all three couldn't wait to get back onto the field. "It's exciting to finally be able to get back at it," said Citadel coach Fred Jordan. "It's too bad the weather didn't cooperate because I know the players wanted to get things going (Friday)."

The VMI Keydets blew the game open with a 28-7 run to start the second half and put five players in double figures en route to an 85-75 over The Citadel Bulldogs in SoCon men's basketball action Saturday afternoon in Lexington, Va. The Keydets (8-13, 4-6 SoCon) won a game that lasted two hours, 28 minutes and was marred by 60 personal fouls, a new Cameron Hall record for combined personal fouls called. The first half was a back and forth affair, marked by six ties and four lead changes, but after a Brian White dunk in the opening moments of the second half pulled the Bulldogs (8-12, 3-6) within two, VMI scored 28 of the game's next 33 points to pull away for good. The Citadel managed to draw within eight in the closing moments, but could get no closer as VMI captured its fifth win in the last six contests against the Bulldogs.
