1. South Carolina National Guard leader offers cadets advice at The Citadel Army ROTC

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny,” is a proverb that was shared with U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets from The Citadel during a leadership lab held January 11, 2018.

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. R. Van McCarty, deputy adjutant general for South Carolina and 1982 graduate of The Citadel, shared the quote he found showcased in Dr. Len Marrell’s book, “In Search of Ethics” to highlight the importance of integrity in decision making. He read the quote during his presentation to Freshmen and Sophomore cadets as their guest speaker, providing insight on professional development and answering questions about military leadership.

A recent study reveals that US Army recruits from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas “are significantly less fit, and consequently are more likely to encounter training-related injuries than recruits from other US states.”

1. The world's antiquities are in danger. Citadel students hope to save them with a scanner

James Bezjian returned from Scotland in December with a trove of Bronze Age and Byzantine artifacts stashed on a hard drive.

A sculpture of a woman with a bowl in her lap, a tiny coin bearing the face of Medusa, and dozens of other antiquities were preserved in minute digital detail by a three-dimensional scanner.

Bezjian is the director of the Innovation Lab at The Citadel's Baker School of Business. He spent 12 days testing out the new scanners on artifacts held by the University of St. Andrews. After getting the hang of the devices and capturing some sharply focused 3D images, he plans to teach undergraduate students to use them in the field this semester.

5. MLK Picture Awards honor 'people who work in the background'

In Charleston, Martin Luther King Jr. Day triggers a host of events: a parade, ecumenical service, church celebrations, a business breakfast, a poetry slam and more.

Among the annual commemorations of the civil rights icon is Rep. Wendell Gilliard’s Portrait Awards where he honors local leaders — those who don’t typically garner lots of public attention — by presenting them with a framed portrait of King and singing their praises.

This year’s event, held Sunday at the Charleston Music Hall, featured keynote speaker Mary Thornley, president of Trident Technical College, as well as authors Karen Wright Chisolm and Margie Pizarro, Rep. James Smith and several others.

Music and movement was provided by the Charleston Development Academy Choir, The Citadel Choir, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church Choir and the Karen Mims Praise Dancers.

6. Letter: Reggie Burgess a deserving leader

Reggie Burgess gave a guest lecture to my criminal justice class at The Citadel in 2014. He spoke frankly about the differences of policing affluent and poor neighborhoods. He brought along a slide that said “I am a product of my environment — North Charleston: Union Heights, George Legare, North Park Village, Liberty Hill.”

He told my optimistic students his story of having a successful college football career and getting a tryout with the New York Jets, but of ultimately returning to the tarmac of Charleston airport with the realization that he needed a job, which he found with the North Charleston Police Department.

My students are often unaware of the forces of gravity many of them will face after leaving the nurturing college environment, and some might appreciate Burgess’ story increasingly in years to come.

The history of liberty and prosperity is inseparable from the practice of free enterprise and respect for the rule of law. Both are products of the spirit of classical liberalism. But a correct understanding of free enterprise, the rule of law, and liberalism (rightly understood) is greatly lacking in the world today.

9a. Najdawi, Frierson lead Citadel past Chattanooga, 110-101 in OT

Matt Frierson had a two-word response Saturday when Citadel coach Duggar Baucom told the junior he would start for the first time all season, and just the fourth time in his career.

"Yes, sir," Frierson said, according to Baucom. But in the McAlister Field House locker room before Saturday's game against Chattanooga, Frierson had more to say.

"He told me, 'Both of us have to play well today,'" fellow junior Zane Najdawi said. "He said, 'We're both juniors, the freshmen don't know what to expect in conference play.' "He really stepped it up today, and I'm proud of him."

Najdawi and Frierson both played the games of their Citadel careers thus far, combining for 68 points as the Bulldogs outlasted under-manned Chattanooga by 110-101 in overtime
