School of Law's positive case (editorial)
The Charleston School of Law has come a long way in only two years. Its future now depends on national accreditation from the American Bar Association. In terms of community response and involvement, it has a good case. A seven-member ABA team is visiting the private school this week to evaluate its arguments for provisional accreditation, which, if approved, could be followed by full accreditation two years later. The panel will deliver a report to the ABA's committee on accreditation, which will meet in the spring before making a recommendation to the ABA council. A final decision is expected no sooner than June.

Dogs must shift gears quickly
Hey, Citadel Bulldogs! You've just played football for four hours and three overtimes and come this close to beating your biggest rival. What are you going to do next? "Uh ... We're going to Statesboro." Much as they might need it, the Bulldogs won't get a week in Disney World to recover from their marathon 39-31 loss to rival Furman last Saturday, a game believed to be the longest in The Citadel's history...

John Regni of Maxwell Air Force Base's Air University - needs to resist pressure to relax and let old ways creep back in...

Beware fake sports memorabilia
As the World Series draws nearer and the football and hockey seasons rev up, many fans will want to buy some sports memorabilia, especially a poster, card or ball bearing signatures of sports stars. But there is a danger of buying a forgery. Sports memorabilia is an unregulated business with sales of more than $1 billion per year. After an investigation in 2000, the FBI reported that half the items of sports memorabilia on the market are fakes.

Schools may expect too much too soon (Saturday’s Letters to the Editor)
don’t think state officials are being fair about their expectations about student achievement in math. Understanding math depends on maturity. Math is something you have to see, understand and transfer. I earned a bachelor of science in math, a master’s concentration in math, studied math for two years in tech school and two more at The Citadel. The more I study, the more sense some things make to me, and I can apply math to my daily life. Children need to take math for 12 years and in college.
