Three Wal-Mart employees, including a company officer, also lost their jobs. The world's largest retailer said it asked Thomas M. Coughlin, who is also a former president and CEO of the company's stores division, to step down because of "a disagreement" over the results of the probe, which involves between $100,000 and $500,000, and his "response to questions concerning his knowledge of certain transactions," according to a regulatory filing...

The third Citadel football coach in as many seasons aims to stop that alarming turnover rate.

"I want to be at a place that we can stay for a long period of time and develop a program, like we did at Lehigh."

The Citadel should have its new football coach by this weekend, if not sooner, athletic director Les Robinson said Monday. Robinson interviewed three candidates in person and a fourth on the telephone while in Charlotte for the NCAA basketball tournament last weekend, and said he has a list of "about a half dozen" finalists. According to several sources, two of the coaches interviewed in Charlotte were ex-Lehigh head coach Kevin Higgins and Rice offensive coordinator Scott Wachenheim. Neither could be reached for comment Monday. "We do have a list of finalists, but it's kind of a moving target," Robinson said. "There are some guys who are finalists who might not even know they are finalists."

Parents kept out of the loop when their kids turn 18
...By the time our next son went off to college, we had mastered the credit card lesson. Two weeks into the school year, he mangled his hand in a Sunday afternoon football game. Since he was a lowly knob at The Citadel, he wasn't allowed to use the phone, but he did eventually sneak an e-mail off to us. I didn't see the e-mail until Thursday. Imagine my surprise when I found that he was scheduled for major reconstructive surgery the next day. I called the college infirmary and demanded to know why we had not been notified. The answer was, "Ma'am, he's 18. We would have liked to have called you but we couldn't." I reckon someone would have called us when they wanted the bill to be paid...

Fine arts at The Citadel (not web accessible - letter to the editor)
For the past three years I have been living in the actibe lifestyle community at Seaside in Mount Pleasant. One of the many entertainments we have been priviledged to attend is Citadel Fine Arts. However I'm surprised to see this great institution does not have better equipped and more comfortable auditorium for these performances. Winthrop has the James F. Byrnes Hall and Clemson (has) a marvelous st-of-the-art center for their performing arts. I am not familiar with the uNiversity of South Carolina.
The Citadel seems to have many alumni rooting for their needs. Certainly there are many devotees who would do the same for this department which is so important for the cadets' education. I look forward to attending many more programs and enjoying the ambiance of this remarkable South Carolina Institution. Eugenia Floyd, Mount Pleasant

The facts of The Citadel's basketball season are strange indeed. The Bulldogs doubled their win total from last year, but still suffered their third straight losing season.

And the Bulldogs won 12 of their first 17 games, only to lose their last 11 in a row...

Academy, Citadel overlooked criminal record
All Reginal Boatwright wanted was a chance to prove he'd learned from his crimes. But he couldn't get a break until he broke the law again. The convicted criminal and former military policeman lied his way into a police job at The Citadel in 2003 and patrolled the campus for a few weeks before a former girlfriend alerted school officials. How did a convicted burglar get a job as a police officer? Neither the college nor the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, where Boatwright received police training, ever bothered to examine his background...
