Army to withhold $9M of contract
WASHINGTON - The Army has decided to reimburse a Halliburton subsidiary all but $9 million of nearly $222 million in costs that Pentagon auditors questioned for oil industry work in Iraq, Army officials said Monday. At issue is a $2.4 billion contract awarded to Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root to deliver fuel to Iraqis and repair oil industry equipment. The 2003 contract has come under criticism because it was awarded without competitive bidding and because of the company's links to Vice President Dick Cheney, once its chief executive officer.

Budget writers likely to trim proposals
House budget writers are likely to scale back a draft spending plan when they meet later today, a push that could trim increased dollars earmarked for programs ranging from hospital slots for the disabled to money for trauma centers. The push comes after criticism from some House Republican leaders and Gov. Mark Sanford over a draft budget. The flap put budget work on hold last week. Cooper said last week the House would need to trim $390 million in new money to reach the governor’s goal. To achieve that, he said, would mean cutting millions from higher education, health and other programs.

Four Marines died in a 2000 crash in North Carolina that was caused by a ruptured titanium hydraulic line. Nineteen others were killed in a crash that year in Arizona that was blamed on pilot error.

No bye? Then bye-bye, says SoCon history
It's the Southern Conference's version of the Golden Ticket. If you want to enter college basketball's Chocolate Factory - the NCAA Tournament - you've got to have one. A first-round bye in the SoCon Tournament, that is. In our league, you don't have teams that already have locked up NCAA bids. You have teams that are fighting to get into the NCAAs." "Every year, it seems like there's a team with a losing record that sneaks up on people and gets into the NCAA Tournament," said Citadel coach Pat Dennis, whose Bulldogs are seeded No. 11.

Others have booked appearances over the next several days... Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be the featured speaker Thursday night at the Lexington County GOP’s Bronze Elephant Dinner. Earlier in the day, he will speak at The Citadel. He also will have a private dinner with about 50 grass-roots activists in Spartanburg on Friday night.

Most states that have created panels to develop a "statewide plan" for public higher education have done so without pre-determining that the plan should include creation of a new layer of bureaucracy that will drive up costs to taxpayers without educating additional South Carolinians. The more accepted approach across the nation is clearly to determine first what functions are needed, and then let those functions dictate structural form.

Officers hit books to be better soldiers
COLUMBIA - Dressed in civilian clothes, three Army officers watch as their tutor writes Arabic script across the board. "You want to say, 'Turn left,' " the instructor says. All three men reply: "Liff yasaar. Liff yasaar. Liff yasaar." The officers - combat veterans on track to lead troops again, probably in the Middle East - are part of a pilot program that is sending 21 Army officers to graduate school to learn about foreign cultures, business practices and languages such as Arabic. Next year, 200 will follow in their footsteps.

Recruiting | After signing day, dance begins again
NOT LONG AFTER the last faxed letter of intent for the class of 2006 arrived, football coaches started working the next group of prospects. Clemson already has four commitments from the junior class: quarterback Willy Korn of Byrnes, wide receiver Xavier Dye of Greenwood, offensive lineman Wilson Norris of Pickens and defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins of Daniel. The Tigers are in strong position with others. Spring Valley wide receiver Alex Levy (6-2, 187) will visit The Citadel later this month. The Bulldogs are recruiting him as a decathlete for the track team but will also give him the opportunity to join the football team. Levy is one of the state's top pole vaulters.

Pay gap remains in state jobs
Black state employees have made gains in closing the salary gap with whites at upper levels of state government. But a new study says women continue to be paid significantly less than their male counterparts. The annual report by the S.C. Human Affairs Commission, released last week, shows black state executives made 7.6 percent less than white executives, who were paid an average of $68,107 in 2005. The Citadel, at 63.4 percent, met the fewest of its goals among higher education. Greenville Technical College met 97.3 percent of its hiring goals, best among colleges and universities.

A super feat, times two
FOOTBALL REQUIRES A year-round commitment from players who really thirst to succeed, and finding motivation for offseason work can be challenging.What drives an athlete? Spring Valley High can offer a prod that few can match — two alumni in the Super Bowl. Michael Boulware and Willie Williams might be no more than names to many Vikings football players today, but their presence looms large. They will be in Detroit on Sunday for the 40th Super Bowl. Boulware dropped by the school before leaving for training camp last summer, and Noonan made sure his current players recognized the visitor. “The jerseys (in the weight room) are always a reminder,” said Andre Roberts, a Spring Valley senior wide receiver headed for The Citadel. “Then you see him come by and you’re more motivated to work harder. You want to be the next one.”

'Follow the money'
S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell surely doesn't need me to defend his guest column regarding the Forum on Academic and in Institutional Rights (FAIR), but I find the letter to be an obfuscation of the real issue. The debate about the Solomon Amendment isn't about the law, principles, or patriotic or unpatriotic people. It is about money. If a college or university doesn't want to abide by the Solomon Amendment, it can simply stop taking federal money. It's a pretty simple concept. To equate military recruiters with corporate recruiters is to miss the elephant in the room.

Conversation let to conservation
Preserving Morris Island in a pristine state has been a quiet goal of many people for at least a decade, but the deal that promises to do just that didn't heat up until Christmas. As the deal came together, Riley filled in Blake Hallman of the Morris Island Coalition, a local nonprofit formed to fight the island's development, and Alex McMillan, a Citadel professor and board member of the Civil War Preservation Trust. The trust lists Morris Island among its most endangered battlefields. The trust lists Morris Island among its most endangered battlefields.

Mocs already in tournament mode
Forget about carriage rides or harbor tours. There was only one sight the Chattanooga men's basketball team wanted to see on its off day between recent games at the College of Charleston and The Citadel - the North Charleston Coliseum, site of next month's Southern Conference tournament. Mocs coach John Shulman made sure the team bus made a detour past the 11,475-seat building on Sunday, between Chattanooga's loss to the Cougars and overtime victory over the Bulldogs. Although the team couldn't go inside - the annual boat show was in town - they got off the bus and took a long look at the facility while Shulman reminded them of the potential held within.

'Complete streets' gets traction
Charleston Mayor Joe Riley voiced support for it last week in his State of the City address, and another nod of support was given Wednesday to a trendy, more holistic form of road-building than the decades-old approach of designing roads just for cars. The "complete streets" approach involves designing streets that can be used by motorists, walkers, runners and cyclists. To do that, engineers look at every road project to see how paved shoulders, sidewalks or bicycle paths can be included. "We think it is a very progressive, proactive stance for this committee to make," said Don Sparks, president of Charleston Moves and an economics professor at The Citadel. Board member Darrell Heyward said that he frequently sees people walking next to busy roads and that a program like complete streets "is a must."

Roberts smiled as he sat next to teammate Eric Clanton, a defensive end who also signed with The Citadel.

Speedy DBs highlight Higgins' first class
After one season as The Citadel's football coach, Kevin Higgins identified a couple of areas where the Bulldogs needed immediate help. "We felt like we had to have more speed, and bigger, more athletic offensive and defensive linemen," Higgins said Wednesday in announcing his first Citadel recruiting class of 22 players, including four from Lowcountry high schools and nine from South Carolina. "I really felt like we met those needs in this recruiting class." Higgins, who led The Citadel to a 4-7 record in his first season, went as far as Texas and Illinois to sign players, and said the military school will have to widen its recruiting reach to compete for the Southern Conference championship.

Wounded '05 grad attends State of the Union
When 2nd Lt. Terry Peterson was a student at Marmion Academy, his drill team coach always urged him to watch the State of the Union address. Peterson was known for doing more than was asked, but even the coach couldn't have expected him to someday secure a seat at the president's speech. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin asked Peterson (Class of 05 who was wounded in Iraq) to accompany him to Tuesday's speech so the veterans can hear the president's thanks for their service in person, he said.
