1. SC supporters set 175-mile river trip for military veterans
Twenty-two South Carolina combat veterans are paddling 175 miles from Columbia to Charleston in a weeklong effort to bond and help veterans deal with issues related to combat and stress. "It's not meant to be an easy trip," said Chaplain Bobby Farmer, a Vietnam veteran and an event organizer. "It's meant to give veterans a challenge, and a chance to bond. It's something they need to do." The 64-year-old Presbyterian minister said he's found that military veterans who may have to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder get strength from the company of others.

2. Hanahan product in SoCon record book
Hanahan High School product Skylar Hunter has pitched himself into the Southern Conference record books. Hunter, a junior closer for the Citadel Bulldogs, worked out of a jam against Charleston Southern on April 21 to post his 38th career save in a 3-2 victory over the Buccaneers at Riley Park. Hunter got a pair of groundouts with two on and one out in the ninth to break a tie with Elon's Thomas Girdwood (2008-11) for the most saves in SoCon history. It was Hunter's 10th save of the season as the Bulldogs improved to 18-20 and earned their 11th straight home win over the Bucs.

North Florida Edges Bulldogs, Sweep Season Series
The Citadel scored twice in the ninth and had runners on the corners before North Florida closer Corbin Olmstead was finally able to wrap up a 9-8 victory for the Ospreys on Wednesday night at Riley Park. North Florida (32-13) completed a two-game season sweep but not before the Bulldogs scored twice in the ninth on an RBI single by Connor Walsh and an error. With runners at first and third and two outs, Olmstead secured his seventh save of the year with a strikeout of pinch hitter Austin Mapes. Trailing 7-3 in the seventh, the Bulldogs (18-21) began their rally against Matthew Naylor on a pair of walks sandwiched around a single by Ryan Kilgallen. Mike Deese made it a two-run game when he dropped a double just inside the line in shallow right to chase Naylor in favor of Alex Smith.

2a. The Citadel American Society of Civil Engineering student chapter wins first place in concrete canoe competition
Have you ever tried to make concrete float? If you ask a group of civil engineering students, they will probably answer with a resounding 'yes.' Making a slab of concrete float is exactly how The Citadel's American Society of Civil Engineering student chapter won first place in the concrete canoe event at The Carolinas Conference over the weekend of April 9th-11th. The student team placed first in the concrete canoe competition, upsetting a Clemson team that has dominated the event for over a decade. The competition asks student teams to create a canoe, made of concrete, which not only has to float while carrying passengers, but that can also be sunk underwater to resurface on its own.

Four Citadel pitchers limited Charleston Southern to two only hits, and Skylar Hunter worked out of a jam in the ninth to post his Southern Conference-record 38th career save in a 3-2 victory over the Buccaneers Tuesday night at Riley Park.

It was Hunter's 10th save of the year and first in exactly a month.

5. A three-pronged plan for how the Gamecocks can reach the NCAA baseball tournament
For a South Carolina team with a fairly thin rotation, even more so now with Wil Crowe lost, that's problematic to begin with. Then you add in the fact that many of these smaller schools expect to be able to compete with, or even beat USC, and no wonder the Gamecocks seem to be in a dogfight every Tuesday night. Last season they lost to Charleston Southern and The Citadel, but their performance in league play was good enough for the NCAA selection committee to look past those defeats.

2. Defending the Ethical Enterpriser in an Anti-Business Climate
In spite of the great advances in reducing poverty and increasing the freedom and dignity of hundreds of millions of people around the world, the political and cultural climate virtually everywhere around the world is one of anti-business and anti-capitalism. Yet, it is wherever the forces of free market capitalism have been set freest, along with a modicum of acceptance and even respect for business enterprise, that the most dramatic strides have been made in abolishing the worst and most squalid material conditions of mankind.

1. Fishable? Swimmable? Charleston waters in trouble
The water quality in the Charleston Harbor estuaries has been deteriorating for years, while the monitoring has fallen off and efforts to maintain it for fishing or swimming aren't stopping the degradation. Sewer system discharge, rain runoff and litter are increasing as population growth and development turn a coastal town into a city. Recent research is damning, finding pollutants such as flame retardants, stain repellents and plastics in the tissue of marine animals. The study, "Plastic to Microplastic: Decomposition of Three Common Plastic Polymers in a Salt Marsh Habitat," found the load is breaking down within four to eight weeks to microplastics that are absorbed by aquatic food like shrimp, and can kill them, the study found. "The eight-week finding suggests to me that these microscopic plastic fragments could potentially be harming the overall health of our ecosystems," said Cadet Brittany Crocker, who conducted The Citadel study with physiology professor John Weinstein.

2. Experts say IAM will likely look to ramp support from Boeing workers
The International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers withdrew its petition for a union election at Boeing's North Charleston plant Friday. The election has been postponed for at least six months. The Union is filing Unfair Labor Practice charges against Boeing, and claims two of its organizers were threatened at gunpoint by Boeing workers. That information comes from a release on the Union website. It says that while out on home visits to Boeing workers two were threatened at gunpoint and others said they had quote, "hostile and near-violent confrontations." IAM recently suspended those visits. While another election can be scheduled for some time after October, some business analysts believe the Machinists Union will start to try and ramp up even more support in the very near future. "The intensity with the way the union is attempting to do this shows their desperation," Richard Ebeling, Ph.D., a business professor at The Citadel, said.

3a. A war's lasting legacy, 150 years later
April 1865 was not Charleston's finest moment. By the time word reached the city that the Civil War had ended, the fighting had been over here for nearly two months. For four years, Charleston had suffered through the horrors of the War Between the States - a conflict that started at Fort Sumter. Since that first shot, the city had suffered more than 500 days of siege and shelling. A fire had destroyed much of downtown, and some of the rest had been burned by retreating Confederates. At 3 p.m., the Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust will host a memorial service for the Civil War dead at Hampton Park. The Citadel Chaplain Joel Harris will officiate, with remarks from Blight.
