Colleges Rock the Block to fight abuse of alcohol
For many teenage students, college represents a chance to gain some independence, exercise a budding intellect, make new friends and catch a glimpse of the world beyond. For some, though, it offers an easy path to the illicit. Underage drinking has become such a concern at Charleston-area colleges that local school administrators have decided to get organized in an attempt to address substance abuse and what's called the "college effect."

Quincy Collins made the best of his stay at the notorious "Hanoi Hilton." The Citadel alumnus, who was shot down in 1965, spent 7-1/2 years in Vietnamese prisons, suffering through bouts of torture, fear and despair. The experience, he said, shaped who he is today. "When you lose your freedom, it changes your life," said Collins, a retired Air Force colonel and 1953 Citadel graduate. "I look at my time in prison as probably the greatest growing time of my career, though. I had to dig deep to find out who Quincy Collins really is -- what makes me tick and what I am made of."

Hurricane Katrina hits home at The Citadel
Brian Fletcher felt a shock of recognition as he watched the television in those first few days. "On CNN, they showed oil and water all around this gas station," said Fletcher, a junior football player at The Citadel who is from Baton Rouge, La. "And I'm like, 'Hey, I was at that gas station three years ago at Mardi Gras. I've been on that corner, I've been in that store.' "It was so sad to see all the places I knew so well, all the people, all of historical New Orleans underwater. It will probably never be the same." The scope of the disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi was particularly difficult to watch for Fletcher and two other natives of the area -- Citadel tennis coach Toby Simpson and director of football operations and equipment Tim Doggett.

Clemson may take lead in restoration of Hunley
COLUMBIA--Clemson wants to put its paw print on the North Charleston Hunley lab, and is negotiating to paint the town orange. The city, the university and the state Hunley Commission are working out details of a plan that could lead to a 65-acre research and technology campus branching out from the Warren Lasch Conservation Center. That would make the former Charleston Naval Base the hub of a restoration institute that ultimately could employ nearly 5,000 people and have a $500 million annual economic impact.

And, true to "hunting video" form, Didelot bagged his buck. Such was the way the evening of Aug. 20 transpired for Didelot, a Mauldin native and recent Citadel graduate who now lives in Charleston. Didelot, 22, never found an abundance of free time to devote to hunting while in college, even though his roommate and many of his college buddies -- most members of The Citadel's baseball team -- inspired him to hit the woods whenever possible. Didelot had dabbled with deer on a few occasions last winter, but the bucks he encountered were either too far away or strategically positioned so as to not allow a clean shot.
