1. Joint Military-Civilian Domestic Threat Response Training

Following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, law enforcement agencies in cities around our nation implemented new tactics and procedures to heighten vigilance and increase readiness. One component that became vital to responding was improving interagency coordination by conducting joint training, simulating a variety of potential threats.

Using a mock hostage and domestic terrorist scenario, South Carolina first responders in Charleston County and SWAT along with the South Carolina Army National Guard and members of the Cordell Airborne Rangers at The Citadel’s Army Reserve Officers Training Corps, conducted a response event at the Moncks Corner Armory in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, April 11, 2018.

4. College baseball: Litchfield's blast gives Charleston Southern walk-off win over Citadel 7-6

osh Litchfield hit a two-out home run in the bottom of the ninth to give Charleston Southern a 7-6 walk-off victory over The Citadel on Tuesday night at CSU Ballpark.

The Bulldogs (14-22) had tied the game in the top of the inning on William Kinney's RBI single, which scored Cameron Jensen.

A walk led off the bottom of the ninth, but a popped up bunt and a failed stolen base attempt gave the Bucs (12-27) two outs with no one on base. Litchfield worked a 2-2 count before driving a ball deep over the right field fence to end the game on his first homer of the season. This was the first time the Bucs have beaten The Citadel and College of Charleston in the same season since 2007.

4. New South Carolina Water Pollution Research From the Citadel Points to Tires, Eco-Plastics

Tiny black shreds make up nearly all of 7 tons of microscopic plastic particles found floating in Charleston Harbor at any given time.

The source was a mystery for researchers, until recently. It's shreds worn off braking tires.

Meanwhile, plastic bags marketed as eco-friendly take as long or longer than standard plastic bags to break down in the same waters.

Those two disturbing findings, made by researchers at The Citadel, come as state legislators are dealing with a bill to make it illegal for cities and counties to ban plastic bags. House Bill 3529, carried over from the 2017 session, is back in front of the Legislature and could be taken up again as soon as Tuesday.

6. Why the Social Engineers of the Sixties Failed to Make a "Great Society"

Fifty years separate us today from 1968 and the two momentous legacies of the then failed presidency of Lyndon Johnson: The declaring of war on America's supposed domestic ills in the form of the "Great Society" programs, and the aggressive military intervention in a real war in Vietnam. Both of these "wars" reflected the arrogance and hubris of the social engineer who believes that he has the power and ability to remake and direct society in his own preferred image.
