Dealer Profile - W. Harold Arnold '63

In the late 1960s, W. Harold Arnold Jr. — at the time a Greenville businessman — toyed with a number of business opportunities. The one that he settled on was to join partners to buy a car dealership in peninsular Charleston.  The dealership would become Sentry Buick Pontiac GMC. But to most people, the venture would be Harold Arnold’s Sentry Buick Pontiac GMC. Since 1983, Arnold has run the outlet — first downtown, then North Charleston and for the past four years, Savannah Highway in a former supermarket. He is still the president, even as son W. Harold Arnold III serves as general manager and daughter Anne Arnold is vice president of governmental affairs and community

At The Citadel, tradition tops football

Today, the University of Florida plays host on the football field to The Citadel. Many Gator fans dismiss the game as nothing more than a tune-up for future contests against the more the renown football powers of Florida State and Alabama.  Indeed, the team from the small, military-based college on the banks of the Ashley River in Charleston, S.C. - a school known for producing four-star generals, not Heisman Trophy winners - would seem to have little chance of taking The Swamp by storm.  But fighting and courage are embedded in the team that plays for its brethren, the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. For more than 150 years, Citadel cadets have been creating a bond that the school's external affairs officer says has yielded one of the most close-knit student bodies and alumni anywhere.

Beat Burger (A tough year for everyone)

It's been a tough year here at the "Beat Burger" world headquarters, where computer rankings and Ouija Boards seem useless in trying to pick college football games.  But, it's been a tough year for everyone. What with collapse of our economic system, wars raging around the globe and Tommy Bowden having to resign as the football coach at Clemson.  Going into the home stretch of the regular season, I've managed to hold on to a record of 78-32 through 11 weeks. There was one week when I was 9-1, one when I was 5-5 and a lot of mediocre weeks in between.

Bulldogs will try to slow down Gators

Believe it or not, there are some questions to be answered today when The Citadel's football team invades The Swamp to take on third-ranked Florida.  Will it be Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow's final game at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium? Will playing the Bulldogs harm the Gators' chances for a spot in the BCS title game? And will Florida coach Urban Meyer fulfill his "promise" to hang 100 points on The Citadel?

End fee for Gold Star tags (editorial)

One could make an argument for not allowing specialty tags at all. But South Carolina has approved them — and we have them in abundance.

As Citadel quarterback Bart Blanchard approached the line of scrimmage late in the game last Saturday, he didn't like what he saw.  Protecting a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter, Wofford's defense was lined up with two deep safeties and a cornerback pressing up on wide receiver Andre Roberts, a classic "cover 2" look.

Veterans' leadership skills much needed in civilian world (commentary)

(Dr. Earl Walker, a professor of management and leadership at The Citadel, is a retired Army colonel and a veteran of the Vietnam War.)

On Veterans Day, we should remember that our veterans have contributed much to our country and have potential to give much more.  The news is worrisome. We read of the number of young men and women lost in the war on terrorism. That being said, the majority of our veterans have not been killed or wounded in action or in training accidents. Most of them are not emotionally scarred by war or military service. Rather, they return to society with very special skills that our society badly needs.

Eagles working overtime for victories

The NCAA record book exceeds 400 pages, but it does not have a listing for most overtime games in a year. The reason is simple is it's a statistic that the NCAA doesn't track.  But a call to the NCAA got the records staff doing research, and according to Jim Wright of the NCAA, Georgia Southern now holds the single-season record for most overtime games played by a FCS team.  Last Saturday's 44-41 triple-overtime win over The Citadel was the Eagles' fourth of the season. Northwestern, an FBS team, played four overtime games in 2004.

Once Democratic Solid South slowly changed hands

Jack Bass is a member of the Department of History at The Citadel and co-author of a forthcoming University of South Carolina book, "The Palmetto State."

(In holding their own Tuesday, South Carolina Republicans bucked the national trend.  John McCain's winning percentage here fell below that of President Bush in 2004, but the state remained solidly red against a tide of presidential blue.  Although Barack Obama's smashing presidential primary victory in South Carolina provided momentum for the Democratic nomination, neither he nor running mate Joe Biden made a single visit here for the general election.

College suspends Governor's School

The Governor's School at the College of Charleston just became one of the early casualties of state budget slashing. The program has been suspended for the summer of 2009, its director announced Monday.  The college dropped the program after the state Legislature cut $288,000 for it from the budget, among $5 million in budget cuts the college has to absorb. The college couldn't find a way to restore the money out of its own funds, said Steve Osborne, business affairs vice president.

If any team knows what the Wofford Terriers are going through this week, it is The Citadel Bulldogs.  Citadel players can empathize fully with their Wofford colleagues, who trailed 42-14 at halftime of an embarrassing 70-24 loss at Appalachian State last week. The Bulldogs were dazed and confused by a 41-7 halftime deficit in their own 47-21 loss at App State on Oct. 4.

House staff loses raise

COLUMBIA — The South Carolina House of Representatives has taken back the 2 percent raise its staff got this summer to help deal with $488 million in state agency budget cuts that went into effect last week.  The $7 billion state budget that took effect July 1 ran into problems as sales and income tax collections fell short of expectations as the national economy slowed and gasoline prices soared. The $488 million in cuts hit the state's health care and college education programs hardest, but also carved into spending everywhere else, leaving agencies deciding how to trim, particularly on payrolls and programs.

He added two sacks and five tackles for losses, while seemingly running from sideline to sideline during the Eagles' 44-41 three-overtime win.  But his performance had a touch of the unusual, making it a memorable day. Walker was whistled for what was announced as giving off "disconcerting signals" after The Citadel's offensive line appeared to have a false start during its third possession. What are disconcerting signals?

DuBose Kapeluck, an assistant professor of political science at The Citadel, said incumbents at all levels of government typically find any easy route back to office. At the state level, races involve less money and less information, and in turn, voters are less mobilized or less motivated, Kapeluck.  The situation is unfortunate given the greater impact state government has on the lives of residents, Kapeluck said.
