1. Intelligent vehicles and concrete canoes lead to real world success
Successfully developing innovative products under stressful deadlines for national competitions means Citadel engineering cadets and graduate college students have substantial, real-world experience as they head into the workforce or back to campus for the 2016-17 academic year. The summer competitions led to strong finishes, but more importantly, provided a year's worth of development, design and project management experiences that the students can now apply to their professional ventures. Meet PabloBOT - A team of five electrical engineering students from The Citadel Graduate College's evening undergraduate program competed against 35 teams from as far away as Egypt and India at the 2016 Intelligent Ground Vehicle Contest (IGVC). The four day event was held at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. JH (Candy) Colinco, Chris Martin, and Zachary Smith worked for months, along with their classmates Mathew Claeys and Richard Graf, and three evening undergraduate mechanical engineering students, to create the intelligent vehicle they named PabloBOT. They worked, and learned under the guidance of Jason Skinner, Ph.D., a professor in The Citadel Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "The Intelligent Ground Vehicle Contest offers a real-world experience that in this case culminated after two semesters of designing and constructing a machine that incorporates cutting-edge electrical engineering innovations," said Skinner. The IGVC is "multidisciplinary, theory-based, hands-on, team implemented, outcome assessed, and based on product realization. It encompasses the very latest technologies impacting industrial development and taps subjects of high interest to students," according to the event website.

2. Think tank identifies 5 states as top rivals
A conservative think tank from Omaha said July 13 that five states - Texas, Florida, Arizona, Colorado and Iowa - are Nebraska's top economic competitors. The Platte Institute for Economic Research said it will study those states' public policies to see if Nebraska could make changes to their policy to improve the unfavorable trends of people and their incomes leaving the state according to the institute. Sarah Curry, policy director for institute, said Nebraska can't duplicate Colorado's mountains or the warmer weather of Texas, Florida and Arizona, but factors like taxes, education, regulation and other policies may influence people when they look to relocate. Iowa, for example, has a similar climate and yet attracts Nebraskans, in part because of a lower tax rate on retirement benefits, she said. The institute's report, based on research from economist Russell Sobel of the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, cited U.S. Census figures, tax data and a study by the Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based conservative think tank.

3. Citadel picked second in SoCon football, highest since 1982
The last time The Citadel was picked to finish as high as second in the Southern Conference, Bulldogs football coach Brent Thompson was barely out of kindergarten. But that's where the defending Southern Conference co-champs were picked in SoCon preseason polls released Wednesday at the league's media day. Both coaches and media voted The Citadel to finish right behind consensus favorite Chattanooga, which shared the league title with the Bulldogs last season. That's the highest The Citadel has been predicted to finish since 1982, when Art Baker was the team’s coach. And it's a long way from the seventh-place finish projected for the Bulldogs a year ago. "It's great to get a little more respect, because our coaches deserve that and our players deserve that," said Thompson, who replaces Mike Houston, gone to James Madison after two seasons. "They earned that with their performance last season. "But with preseason polls, nobody has any idea what kind of football team they have right now. I've got a good idea of what we can do, but I certainly don't know what we are yet."

4. SoCon commissioner sees bright future for his league
Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino stood in front of players, coaches and reporters and spoke about the state of the conference at the league's football media day on Wednesday. His message? Everything's just fine. After a down year in 2014, the Football Championship Subdivision league started to get back to the standard it had set prior to the defections of powers Appalachian State and Georgia Southern to the Football Bowl Subdivision, along with Elon leaving for the Colonial Athletic Association. "I think the league is back on the rise," new Citadel head coach Brent Thompson said. "We weren't down for very long. We're talking about recovering after two of the top teams leave, and they (Georgia Southern) go win the conference (Sun Belt) they go to. They do a great job of representing the Southern Conference at the next level. "I won't be surprised if we get three in the playoffs very soon." The SoCon almost had that last season. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and The Citadel shared the conference title and each won a playoff game. Western Carolina had as strong of a case for making the postseason as any team left out, with seven wins and losses only to the SoCon co-champions, as well as Southeastern Conference programs Tennessee and Texas A&M. In addition, The Citadel defeated SEC program South Carolina and Furman beat FBS member Central Florida.

5. SoCon Notes: Citadel got sneak peek at new Chattanooga QB
Jacob Huesman is one of those college football players whose career seemed to last about eight years. That's because the Chattanooga quarterback packed so much into his four-year career - three Southern Conference championships and three offensive player of the year awards. Believe it or not, Huesman is finally done with college football, and is working out and hoping for a shot at pro ball. But The Citadel Bulldogs already have had a sneak peek at Huesman's heir apparent, Alejandro Bennifield, a 6-2, 220-pound junior. Bennifield, Citadel fans may recall, threw a touchdown pass on the first play of the game in the Mocs' 31-23 win a year ago, lining up at receiver to throw the second part of a double-pass that covered 75 yards. Bennifield will start at QB for the consensus favorite Mocs this season. "He's a lefty and probably played 100 snaps last year in a variety of ways," said Russ Huesman, the Mocs' coach and Jacob's father. "He's similar to Jacob in that he can run, and he's probably got a better arm than Jacob had. He might be able to make you miss better than Jacob could, but obviously he's not going to run the ball 200 times.

1. What American Citizenship Makes Possible
Many years ago, after I had become a four-star general and then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Times of London wrote an article observing that if my parents had sailed to England rather than New York, "the most they could have dreamed of for their son in the military was to become a sergeant in one of the lesser British regiments." Only in America could the son of two poor Jamaican immigrants become the first African-American, the youngest person and the first ROTC graduate from a public university to hold those positions, among many other firsts. My parents arrived—one at the Port of Philadelphia, the other at Ellis Island-in search of economic opportunity, but their goal was to become American citizens, because they knew what that made possible... I'm a public-education kid, from kindergarten through to Morris High School in the South Bronx and, finally, City College of New York. New York University made me an offer, but tuition there was $750 a year. Such a huge sum in 1954! I would never impose that on my parents, so it was CCNY, where back then tuition was free. I got a B.S. in geology and a commission as an Army second lieutenant, and that was that. And it all cost my parents nothing. Zero. After CCNY, I was lucky to be among the first group of officers commissioned just after the Army was desegregated. I competed against West Pointers, against grads from Harvard and VMI and The Citadel and other top schools. And to my surprise, I discovered I had gotten a pretty good education in the New York City public schools. Not only in geology and the military, but also in wider culture. I had learned a little about music, about Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and theater and things like that. I got a complete education, all through public schools, and it shapes me to this day.

3. Pinecrest Quarterback Commits to The Citadel
Pinecrest Academy rising senior athlete, Ryan McCarthy, made a verbal commitment Monday, July 18 to The Citadel to play football. McCarthy, who is team captain for the Pinecrest Paladins and starts as quarterback and outside linebacker, will play quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2017. McCarthy also received a football scholarship offer from Elon University, and has been actively recruited by Georgia Southern University, Northern Illinois University, Minnesota State University, Ohio University, Samford University, Liberty University and Mercer University. During the 2016 football season and his junior year at Pinecrest, McCarthy was named All-State, Region Player of the Year, All-Region and All-County. "Ryan is a tremendous leader, student and Christian young man. He is a competitor in the classroom and on the field," commented Pinecrest Academy Head Football Coach Todd Winter. "We are proud of his accomplishments and looking forward to him leading our team in 2016."

4. State's football coaches gather for charitable cause
In about a month, Furman University's Bruce Fowler and Wofford College's Mike Ayers will begin another struggle for position in the Southern Conference. They will contend with South Carolina State's Buddy Pough and The Citadel's Brent Thompson for spots in the playoffs. Clemson's Dabo Swinney and South Carolina's Will Muschamp will open another quest for championships and bragging rights. However, on Tuesday night, the coaches suspended their rivalries and shared the same stage, because they all share the same stance on goodwill. Six of the state's Division I head coaches participated in South Carolina Coaches for Charity at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Greenville. The annual event was initiated seven years ago by South Carolina native and former Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry. In addition to their respective schools, the coaches raised awareness and funds for their sponsored charities. The causes included Chris and Kelly's Hope which assists adolescents and young adults who struggle with substance abuse, addiction and depression, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Brookland-Lakeview Empowerment Center and Dabo's All-In Team Foundation, which supports breast cancer research and educational enrichment programs.

1. The exclusive Cassique Golf Course on Kiawah Island will host the first annual Gavalas Kolanko Foundation golf tournament
The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation (GKF) will be expanding their fundraising efforts this fall with an inaugural golf tournament fundraiser. The GKF Golf Tournament, presented by MassMutual South Carolina, will be held on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at the prestigious Cassique Golf Course on Kiawah Island. Cassique is not open to the public and is part of the private Kiawah Island Club, however, this will be one of the rare opportunities for non-members to play the course and enjoy the facilities... About The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation: Nicholas B. Gavalas and Dr. Ronald Kolanko established the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation (GKF) in 1999. The GKF assists students with physical disabilities with their secondary educational costs, and increases support and awareness of their needs in the Charleston community.

2. Last team in proving to be a tough out
All summer long, Will Abbott has been hamstrung by a request from The Citadel baseball coaching staff that their incoming freshman only pitch five innings per week for the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team. The restrictions were taken off when Post 17 played its way into the state tournament. Unchained for the first time since the completion of his Camden High career in May, the 6-foot-4 Abbott worked eight-plus innings of five-hit baseball in helping keep his team perfect through two state tourney games with a 9-4 win over defending American Legion World Series champion Chapin-Newberry on Sunday night at Riley Park. The five-run win came over a C-N squad which swept KC in three games less than two weeks earlier in the second round of the Lower State playoffs. It also came on the heels of Saturday morning's 11-6 victory over Rock Hill, the top seed from the Upper State. KC faced Florence Post 1 Monday night at Riley Park in a battle between the only unbeatens left in the eight-team field which will be pared in half four by today. The winner of the KC vs. Florence contest is scheduled to play tonight at 7 p.m. with the loser in the 3 p.m. elimination game. Post 17, which had to win two play-in games last Wednesday in Florence in order to get to Sumter, has been on a tear since dropping its best-of-five series with C-N. Having Abbott available, sans The Citadel-imposed limitations, added to that momentum.

3. Watson, Swinney headline Coaches for Charity event
Clemson junior quarterback Deshaun Watson will be among the honorees Tuesday night at the 7th Annual South Carolina Coaches for Charity event at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Greenville. More than 300 guests will be in attendance for the event, which is hosted by Fisher DeBerry, a South Carolina native and Hall of Fame former football coach at the U.S. Air Force Academy. Through his Fisher DeBerry Foundation, monies are raised to assist children of single-parent families. "More than 40 percent of kids live in single-parent families," DeBerry said. "We believe so strongly in kids and camps, and this year we're sending over 700 kids across the country to summer camps." DeBerry conducts similar events in North Carolina and Colorado. The first six such fundraisers in South Carolina were each held in Columbia. In addition to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, first-year South Carolina coach Will Muschamp will be on hand for Tuesday's event, as will Furman coach Bruce Fowler, Wofford's Mike Ayers, Buddy Pough of S.C. State and first-year Citadel coach Brent Thompson.

1. Social Hour: The Citadel burns South Carolina on Twitter
South Carolina's social media department may not recover from this dig by The Citadel. The Gamecocks were promoting the South Carolina takeover day on the SEC Network. The takeover days (each SEC school gets one), include a day full of programming centered towards a specific school. As you likely remember, The Citadel beat South Carolina in 2015. So here's The Citadel's response to South Carolina's tweet announcing the schedule for USC's day.

5. York Co. teens attend Marine leadership academy
Two high school students from York County schools completed a week-long national youth leadership academy program with graduation ceremonies held Saturday. The two youths participated in the Marine Corps' 2016 Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy in Quantico, Va. The leadership and character development academy is intended to develop "citizens of quality and purpose" through ethical case studies, practical exercises, leadership classes and mentorship similar to the kind used to train Marine Corps officers. Two hundred students, representing 38 states, were selected for the program, which started July 17. Organizers described the participants as service-inclined, academically excellent, leadership-oriented and representing a variety of backgrounds and geographic locations. Colton Lohmeyer, a Fort Mill High School senior, and William "Danny" Warren, a York Comprehensive High senior - were among six South Carolina students who participated in the academy, along with seven from North Carolina. Although participation in the academic is not limited to students interested in military service, both 17-year-olds would like to attend the Citadel. "This week has been awesome, and the Marine Corps has gone above and beyond to run a great camp for high school student leaders," Warren said. :We have learned about leadership and ethical decision making, and have had a blast meeting new friends and pushing ourselves to the limit."

6. DeBerry charity aims to assist single-parent families
The idea of starting a charity to help single parents didn't suddenly come to Fisher DeBerry. It happened gradually with each recruiting trip he would make as head football coach at Air Force. "Each year," DeBerry said, "I found myself going into more and more and more single-parent homes." Home visits like that hit home. "I grew up in a single-parent family and respected so much the sacrifices that my mom made for me to have the opportunities I had," he said. "When her mother took us in, we had 15 cents. I know how much of a strain it is on mothers." DeBerry, the former Wofford player and assistant coach, began helping single parents with charity events in Colorado toward the end of his career at Air Force. He retired in 2006 with the highest winning percentage in program history and is now in the College Football Hall of Fame. The Fisher DeBerry Foundation expanded to include speaking engagements for coaches in Colorado, South Carolina and most recently North Carolina. South Carolina Coaches for Charity happens Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville. There will be a silent auction at 6 p.m. and dinner during the program from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Tickets are $200 and can be purchased at, larger contributions coming with additional benefits. Mike Ayers from Wofford is one of the speakers, along with Dabo Swinney of Clemson, Will Muschamp of South Carolina, Buddy Pugh of South Carolina State, Bruce Fowler of Furman and Brent Thompson of The Citadel.

7. Kiawah caddy plays by the rules in his job
The first time he ever worked as a caddy, he was 12 years old and carried the bag of a guy known at a New Jersey golf course as "Big Red." The golfer wore red shoes, red clothes and owned a heavy red bag. Nate Ross, now 65, still remembers what he learned that day. Stay out of the way and speak when spoken to. Ross, a caddy at Kiawah's Ocean Course for the past 17 years, has a lot of stories to tell, though, and waiting to be asked might be the toughest part of his job. Ross came to Charleston as a basketball coach. He spent eight years at Appalachian State after a chance hiring by Bobby Cremins. Cremins, from New York, took a chance on Ross, a high school teacher from New Jersey. Maybe it was his accent. They might have been the only two people in Boone, North Carolina, who could understand what the other one was saying. Ross then spent seven more years as an assistant coach at The Citadel. After that, there were five long years attempting to own and manage a sandwich shop on King Street.

8b. Braves looking to carry success into state tournament
During Mack Hite's five-year tenure as the coach of the Greenwood American Legion Post 20 baseball team, the Braves have been one of the most successful programs in the state. Five League 7 championships, more than 100 wins and four state tournament appearances decorate Post 20's resume in that span. That successful has yet to carry over into the state tournament, though. Greenwood has won just one game at the state tournament with three winless trips. Hite and the Braves hope to change that this year... Greenwood opens the tournament against a familiar opponent in Sumter Post 15. The two squared off in the first game last year, with Sumter pulling out a 4-2 win. Both squads are missing several key players from that game. The P-15s will be without the Watcher twins, Jacob and Phillip, who play at The Citadel, while Greenwood is missing six players who now play in college: Hamp Fallaw (Spartanburg Methodist), Gatlin Minick (Lander), Jonathan Wright and Brady Smith (USC Salkehatchie), Bryce Bearden (Southern Wesleyan) and Tucker Paul (Newberry). But, the Braves have made up for those losses throughout the year and feel confident that they will have a better state finish this year.

8c. Taylor's way with words led him to Northeast Tennessee
Country roads took West Virginia boy Tom Taylor to a home in Northeast Tennessee, eventually leading to a shortened flight that gave new birth through near death. And through it all, Taylor never lost his way with words. Born in Charleston, West Virginia, in 1958, Taylor went on to graduate from Marshall University - but not before working as a part-time disc jockey and calling ballgames on the radio for Boyd County High School in Catlettsburg, Kentucky... Taylor would fly again, the next time coming in 1990 when he was a broadcaster for The Citadel. The Bulldogs' baseball team reached the College World Series, and Taylor flew to Omaha, Nebraska. "Anytime you go through a crash, I think you have apprehension about flying," said Taylor. "It was in the back of my mind, but you've got to think positive." Taylor was with The Citadel for only one season. He decided to return to Northeast Tennessee, setting up a long run as a high school play-by-play guy for Science Hill, Dobyns-Bennett and Sullivan South high schools. These days, Taylor is charting a new course with the Tom Taylor Sports Show, an internet-based sports talk program.

1. Training gap led to response delay to Citadel Beach House fire
The Citadel Beach House is under repair, after a fire in the early hours of May 8th destroyed it. The call for that fire did not come in to 911 until after the flames were already through the roof and Isle of Palms Fire Department could not handle it on their own. A woman yells, "4700 Palm Boulevard! It's a huge fire!" That's one of the calls that came into 911 that night from one of the people who was inside the Citadel Beach House. Because the fire was so involved, IOP asked for backup before they even arrived. Over the radio, you hear a firefighter say, "Go ahead and send the two units from Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan's Island to the Citadel Beach House please." But it took nine minutes from that request to even notify backup. Isle of Palms Fire Chief Ann Graham says, "I cannot predict how much more of the building would've been saved in that nine minutes, but I can say it delayed our interior attack, and it delayed a second hydrant, and it did delay additional equipment and manpower."

3. Clinton And Trump Embody Plunder And Paternalism
Whether it is Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump who stands on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C in January 2017 to take the oath of office as president of the United States, all public opinion polls suggest whomever emerges victorious will have among the highest unfavorable ratings for anyone beginning their time in the White House. Both Clinton And Trump represent a failure for American democracy. According to an Associated Press poll taken in early July 2016, fifty-seven percent view Clinton unfavorably and only 37 percent favorably. Sixty-three percent hold an unfavorable view of Trump, and only 31 percent are favorable. Of those planning to vote for either Clinton or Trump, only 26 percent, respectively, said they would be positively "excited" if their candidate wins. Plus, three quarters of prospective voters in the poll declared that they were making their decision based upon whom they wanted to vote against. If there was an option on the ballot box that enabled voters to choose "None of the Above", for president in this election year, it very will might be the case that that option would receive either a plurality or maybe even a majority. That may be why come November the Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson, well likely receive the largest number of votes that the LP has every won in a presidential election. Not because a large number of voters either understand or agree with libertarian political philosophy or public policy views, but as a protest against the alternatives that are being offered to the American public by the Democratic and Republican Parties. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4. Football: Pinecrest Academy's McCarthy commits to The Citadel
Pinecrest Academy quarterback Ryan McCarthy went to a football camp at The Citadel last Friday as a linebacker. He'd just about given up on getting recruited to play his favorite position in college. Who wants triple-option quarterbacks like him besides Georgia Tech, he figured? Well, The Citadel does, it turns out. The Bulldogs believed in McCarthy's athletic ability and decision-making acumen enough to offer him a scholarship, and the Paladins' rising senior verbally committed Monday. "It's a big weight lifted off my shoulders," McCarthy said. "I was a little stressed out about [the recruiting process] at first, but I knew with my coach, my friends and family that I'd be OK." McCarthy would join one of the top Division I Football Championship Subdivision programs in the country. The Citadel went 9-4 last year, won the Southern Conference championship and reached the FCS playoffs behind a triple-option offense that set a NCAA record for rushing yards in a season.

Tom Clark, director of the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics. "Last year, Cesar was a key member in Victor Company where he served on the Company Community Engagement Council (CCEC)."
