I am writing in response to the March 14 letter to the editor, "College not my parent." I strongly disagree with the College of Charleston student's opinion. The student believes that the college's new student code, recently established, should not intervene in the students' life outside of school. The new code states that students who are found guilty of using controlled (or illegal) substances, such as marijuana, will be punished. The writer believes this should be rewritten or omitted.

But the formula under consideration won't prevent schools from approving double-digit tuition increases. The state-assisted colleges have hundreds of millions of dollars in maintenance needs.

CHARLESTON, S.C. Senior shortstop Matt Matulia’s three-run home run proved to be the game-winner as The Citadel slipped past Le Moyne baseball, 4-3, Wednesday afternoon in Riley Park. The Dolphins (1-4) got two hits each from Andy Parrino (Brockport, N.Y./Brockport) and Mike Brown (Vestal, N.Y./Vestal). Junior starter Zach Brown earned his first win of the season as Citadel closer Link Saunders registered his fifth save. The Dolphins pulled within one in the seventh, but Saunders came on to wrap it up for the Bulldogs in the ninth. After hitting the first batter, Saunders settled in to earn his fifth save of the season and the 10th of his career. The Citadel (6-3) scored four runs in the third as senior catcher Brady Mashak singled through the left side to lead off the inning. Senior second baseman Tripp Cappelmann moved Mashak over to second with a base hit to right center. Senior right fielder Matt Covington grounded into a fielder’s choice for an RBI to knot the game at one. Sophomore left fielder Chris Swauger worked the count for a walk before Matulia stepped in to blast a three-run shot over the right field fence, his second homer of the year.

Evidently, the way to a new commissioner's heart is through his stomach. At least that's part of the strategy being employed by the Charleston Metro Sports Council, the group that is putting on this week's Southern Conference basketball tournament at the North Charleston Coliseum. Well before tip-off for today's 3:30 p.m. opening game between Appalachian State and Wofford, work was already well under way to try to ensure that the event returns to Charleston in the future.

Painful end in store for Dennis, Citadel
PAT DENNIS DOES not see it this way. Les Robinson says he will not talk about it until the season is complete. Everybody else has a good idea that Dennis likely will coach his final game as The Citadel’s basketball coach tonight in the first round of the Southern Conference Tournament. Dennis will leave with more victories than any men’s basketball coach in The Citadel’s history. He also will depart with more losses than any coach in school history. More than that, he will end a 14-year love affair with the military school.

Ports debate benefit to DOT
As a top-ranking official at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Jeff Shane ought to be publicly ducking the Dubai ports controversy. Instead, the attorney and DOT undersecretary for public policy said he is tickled by the political firestorm that has spread in recent weeks. "I'm like the guy chewing on Chicken McNuggets," he said Wednesday in remarks at The Citadel. "I'm lovin' it." Shane, an appointee of President Bush, wasn't being disloyal to the White House, which has been roundly criticized for approving the sale of six U.S. port terminal operations to a United Arab Emirates company without notifying Congress. His point was that the fracas has fixed public attention on the nation's underfunded and increasingly congested transportation network.

Private investment in transport urged
CHARLESTON — If the United States is going to have a transportation system that continues to grow the economy, the country is going to have to find a way other than government spending to finance it, a government policy expert said Wednesday. Jeffrey N. Shane, U.S. undersecretary of transportation, said the United States needs to look to private capital to continue to fund the nation’s transportation infrastructure. Shane made his remarks at the Free Enterprise Foundation’s first annual award luncheon held at The Citadel.

SoCon tourney is a chance to start fresh for Cats, rivals
Anyone who’s been to an old-time Southern revival would recognize the theme being spread around college basketball locker rooms these days. This is a time for atonement. Past sins need not haunt you anymore. Go forth and begin life anew. The Citadel coach Pat Dennis, for example, might tell his Bulldogs to forget about the 14 times they lost league games this year. Instead, he’ll ask them to internalize the lone season-ending win over Wofford. Four more outcomes like that, and the Bulldogs will be bound for the NCAA.

Ultimate sacrifice
Thank you for publishing the tribute to graduates of The Citadel who have given their lives in defense of our country during the war on terror. It was a fitting memorial to men who have made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. Each year, the month of February jogs my memory back to a time in 1970 when there were others who made the same sacrifice. On Feb. 27 of that year, Danny Berrier was killed in action in Vietnam. During that same action, Kenny Hawley and Lester Taylor sustained injuries that ultimately cost them their lives. Near that date, others killed were Jim Grifasi, Bill Gay, John Hill, Walter Hogans, Vince Duffy, Ken Maxwell and Pat McDaniel. These names may not be known to any of your readers, but if you are able to publish this letter, I would ask them to thank the good Lord for "men such as these." TERRY SEAY 772 Willow Lake Road

USC leader urges enrollment boost
President Andrew Sorensen wants to increase freshman admissions at the University of South Carolina by more than 200 students over the next five years — a move welcomed by trustees who want more South Carolina students at the school. USC would boost freshman enrollment to 4,150 in 2009-2010 from 3,875 this year, while continuing to increase the average SAT scores of the entering classes. The overall student body would expand by 900.

USC, Clemson teams make NCAA grade
The first time USC athletics director Eric Hyman heard the words “academic progress rate” was in the mid-1990s, when he was attending a Mid-American Conference meeting as the AD at Miami (Ohio). On Wednesday, those changes began hitting home for 99 athletic teams at 65 NCAA Division I schools. Those teams drew failing marks under the NCAA’s new academic standards and might begin losing scholarships beginning next fall. Winthrop had two teams below 925, while Wofford and College of Charleston had one each. The Citadel and Furman had no teams below the cutoff.

Will Eagles finally land in NCAA field?
Georgia Southern hopes to keep the Southern Conference’s unique streak going this week and become the league’s seventh different tournament champ over the past nine years. No team the past few years has dominated the SoCon tournament the way East Tennessee did with four consecutive titles from 1989-92, or Chattanooga, which took four of the next five tournaments following ETSU’s run. The tournament begins Thursday with three games — No. 8 seed Appalachian State (12-15) vs. No. 9 seed Wofford (11-17), No. 7 seed Western Carolina (13-16) vs. No. 10 seed North Carolina Greensboro (11-18), and No. 6 seed Furman (15-12) vs. No. 11 seed Citadel (9-20). The Citadel avoided going 0-for-the-SoCon with a final-game, 84-80, overtime victory against Wofford this past Saturday.
