1. Citadel study includes plan for smaller Johnson Hagood Stadium
The Citadel will ask the Board of Architectural Review for permission to demolish the aging east-side stands at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The BAR will consider the request at its Wednesday meeting. If the board agrees to the demolition, what would come next at the home of Citadel football is uncertain. But a study commissioned by the military school provides insight into possible plans. The study, available on the BAR website and conducted by Lindbergh & Associates, recommends a $9.8 million proposal to demolish and replace the east-side stands at the 21,000-seat stadium, initially built in 1948. That plan has not yet been approved by The Citadel's Board of Visitors.

2. From Nigeria to Citadel, Ezekiel Balogun chases American dream
When Ezekiel Balogun was 14 years old, he got on a plane by himself in Lagos, Nigeria, for a 13-hour flight from Africa to America. What awaited him in the U.S., Balogun hoped, was a chance at a better life. "It was because of the opportunities that America provides," said Balogun, now 19 and a freshman on The Citadel's basketball team. "Back home, if I had just gone to school, getting a job would have been much more difficult. My dreams of playing basketball would be dead for me. "Over here, the opportunities are like ... wow. They are so numerous. That's why I chose to come here."

3. Aviation fundraiser to feature Lindbergh program
The next time you’re boarding your flight to parts unknown from EWN (that’s the airport code for Coastal Carolina Regional Airport), thank Charles Lindbergh. The controversial aviator’s famous nonstop flight from New York to Paris in 1927 is what set the whole commercial air flight thing into motion, and you’ll get to hear the story from Lindbergh’s own mouth if you’re attending Friday’s Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation fundraiser dinner on Friday. Well, from the closest thing you can get to Mr. Lindbergh’s mouth. First-person interpreter Tim Clark will appear as Lindbergh for an hour-long program during which he will talk about his interesting life, concentrating on the build-up to, flight and aftermath of his 33-hour, 3,600-mile flight in the Spirit of St. Louis. ...Growing up in the Wilmington area, he graduated from the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, in 1972 and joined the Air Force. There he became a pilot flying such aircraft as the B-52 and reaching the rank of captain before returning to civilian life.

3a. Failure of Socialism is Pope Lecture topic March 1
Richard M. Ebeling, Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, will speak at Clemson University on Wednesday, March 1. Ebeling will speak at the Strom Thurmond Institute’s Self Auditorium, 4:30-6 p.m., as part of the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism’s Pope Lecture series. Ebeling’s topic will be how socialism has fared since Russia’s Bolshevik revolution, which this year marks its 100th anniversary. Hailed as a movement that would bring freedom, equality and prosperity, socialism instead brought economic stagnation, poverty and brutal political tyrannies. Ebeling will talk about how that dream for a better world turned into a nightmare in Soviet Russia and Communist China, and what lessons can be learned 100 years later.

3b. Dr. Richard Ebeling on “Globalization and the Free Society” at University of The Bahamas
Recent political events in Europe, the United States and many other nations suggest a trend away from the more “open world” of the last several decades. The rise of economic nationalism and closed borders threatens to slow humanity’s progress toward both more personal freedom and growing prosperity for too many still living in poverty. Liberty and prosperity requires free trade and economic liberalism. Dr. Ebeling is no stranger to The Bahamas, The Nassau Institute or the University of The Bahamas. The presentation will take place in lecture hall at the Harry C. Moore Library at the University of The Bahamas starting at 6:30pm. The event is free.

5. Citadel players support Dee Delaney, whether Bulldog or Hurricane
The Citadel's All-American cornerback, Dee Delaney, was on the field with the Bulldogs as they began spring practice on Tuesday. How much of spring practice Delaney will complete remains to be seen. The junior from Whale Branch High School, who led the Southern Conference with six interceptions last year, is pondering a chance to transfer to Miami for his final college football season. The 6-1, 194-pound Delaney, considered an NFL prospect, is on track to graduate from The Citadel in May and would be eligible for the 2017 season as a graduate-student transfer at Miami, or any other FBS school. He reportedly will visit Miami this weekend.

The Citadel football team held its first spring practice of 2017 Tuesday afternoon with a 90-minute session at the Maybank Triplets Football Practice Field at Willson Field Complex.

4. Cassandra King Speaks at Savannah Book Festival
I also would ask you to speak to some of the wonderful things that pat wrote about the citadel later in his life. If I knew of any of 'em, I would. [laughter] No, he did. He and The Citadel kissed and made up. He gave the 2001 Commencement speech at The Citadel. And I don't-- his funeral was a haze, I can't remember a whole bunch of it. But when he gave that Commencement speech at The Citadel, he invited them to his funeral. And everybody thought that was strange, but he did it in context it made sense because he said when you come to my funeral and i hope it's going to be a very long time from now.

6. Economic Ideas: Karl Marx’s Misconceptions About Man and Markets
Though it may seem strange, Karl Marx was not always a communist. As late as 1842, when Marx was in his mid-20s, he actually said he opposed any attempt to establish a communist system. In October 1842, he became editor of the Rheinische Zeitung [the Rhineland Times], and wrote in an editorial: The Rheinische Zeitung . . . does not admit that communist ideas in their present form possess even theoretical reality, and therefore can still less desire their practical realization, or even consider it possible. In 1843, Marx was forced to resign his editorship because of political pressure from the Prussian government, and ended up moving to Paris. It was in Paris that he met his future lifelong collaborator, Friedrich Engels (who already was a socialist), and began his deeper study of socialism and communism, leading to his full “conversion” to the collectivist ideal.

7. Sapakoff: Still bullish on the Citadel’s Duggarball after all these losses
Nearly a full corps of cadets showed up at McAlister Field House on Saturday but almost none made use of the white pom-poms left on seats as the Citadel dug itself a 16-point hole. Indeed, it was hard to get too crazy while the Bulldogs lost their 10th consecutive basketball game, this time 89-78 to Mercer. But there are good reasons why players still take to the floor with opening-night enthusiasm and why second-year head coach Duggar Baucom left the building without extra Advil or security. Signs show that “Duggarball” is still a good idea for the Citadel, eventually the best way to win games and influence fans. The fast-paced, bombs-away style Baucom brought from VMI is making gradual progress except in the Southern Conference standings.

1. For a Belfast nonagenarian veteran, life continues as a service to others
At age 92, Carmine Pecorelli, of Belfast, continues to put others ahead of himself. This time, he is offering a kidney to a fellow graduate of the Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. A firm believer of the military motto "Life is for Service," Pecorelli has recently been cleared by his general practitioner for this next deed before his ultimate organ donation at the time of his death. After initial testing, Pecorelli's practitioner told him that health-wise, he has the body of a 55-year-old. Not so of the Citadel graduate, class of 1960, he'd met at an alumni meeting. William B. Gillespie, Esq. of Topsham, having once represented Pecorelli in court litigation, told him, during the courtroom process, about his failing kidneys. "You don't look so well," Pecorelli said to his attorney. "What's up?" Pecorelli thought of his friend's need for a kidney as he drove home. Already committed to full organ donation after death, Pecorelli asked himself: "Why should I wait to give something away? So I called him and I said, Bill, 'I'd like to offer you one of my kidneys.' And he went silent." The paperwork still has to be processed. Further testing is needed to confirm him as a match. The attorney's ability to withstand the new organ will be considered.
