College athletic departments use vague law to keep public records from being seen

Across the country, many major-college athletic departments keep their NCAA troubles secret behind a thick veil of black ink or Wite-Out.  Alabama.Cincinnati. Florida. Florida State. Ohio State. Oklahoma. Oregon State. Utah. They all censor information in the name of student privacy, invoking a 35-year-old federal law whose author says it has been twisted and misused by the universities.  Former U.S. Sen. James L. Buckley said it's time for Congress to rein in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which he crafted to keep academic records from public view.

Citadel offers order, discipline

The bottom of the iron gate scraped against the rough cement as it closed shut. A metal chain was wrapped around the cool bars, secured with a lock for good measure. This wasn’t prison, but for Aric Davis, the next week might as well have been.
The life-long High Springs resident had just concluded his last summer as a civilian and was ready for his first college experience. After graduating from Santa Fe High School (SFHS) in 2005, Davis decided he would attend the Citadel, a military institute in Charleston, S.C. He had always been drawn to the order the military instilled. In fact, his father, Rick, had served in the Marine Corps, and participation in high school sports such as football only furthered Davis’ taste for discipline.
Davis arrived on campus late in the summer of 2005 ready to be molded. He took into account what he’d heard about other students’ transition to college with a grain of salt. Davis knew the Citadel wasn’t an average state school, but he was up for the challenge.

Red, White, Black and Blue

Roller derby could best be described as an all-female version of pro wrestling on wheels.  With colorful names and even more colorful outfits, roller derby is an all-American contact sport, or "sports entertainment," that began in the '20s, found great popularity in the '70s and seemed to subside ever since. ... This Memorial Day weekend, the Lowcountry High Rollers will present the "Red, White, Black and Blue" event at The Citadel's McAlister Field House, in which Charleston's local brawlin' beauties will take on Charlotte's "B Dazzlers."

Cougars' Simpson has been Mr. Dependable

After two seasons at Ole Miss, pitcher Jesse Simpson was looking around for a place to restart his baseball career.  A Citadel coach told him about ... College of Charleston?  "He said, 'College of Charleston is right here, they've got a good baseball team,' " Simpson said. "And that's how I ended up coming here."  Before Bulldogs fans get upset, consider that the Citadel coach in question is tennis coach Toby Simpson, Jesse's older brother. And that brotherly advice has provided the Cougars their most consistent pitcher over the past two seasons.

Daughter's love for mother endures

My parents, Arthur Connor and Beatrice Marie Rudnic, came of age during the Great Depression. They did without so much during their formative years. My father's parents were descended from early settlers of Brooklyn, N.Y., and my mother's parents emigrated from Italy and Lithuania and (they) met at a silk factory in eastern Pennsylvania.

Elizabeth Connor is an associate professor of library science at the Daniel Library at The Citadel, and lives west of the Ashley with her schoolteacher husband, Carlos Fernandez, their two snow dogs Molly and Monty, and three cats, Georgie, Silvester and Miss Abbey Road.

Prius buyer claims he was misled (Aramark food service director)

Last May, Ward Scheindlinger of Summerville traded in his GMC Yukon for a fuel-efficient Toyota Prius hybrid from Gene Reed Toyota.  Gasoline prices were approaching $4 a gallon and Scheindlinger needed something better on gas mileage for his 50-mile round-trip commute to his job at The Citadel.  He said he paid $22,000 and change, plus a $2,500 surcharge, for the Prius because the salesman told him that when he filed his income taxes this year he would receive a large tax deduction that would offset the extra amount the dealership charged for the car.

1-Mercado named to lead The Citadel's cadet corp

The Citadel has chosen one of its alumni to be the next commandant of cadets. On Monday, the military college named Marine Corps Col. Leo A. Mercado to replace retired Army Col. Greg Stone, who steps down at the end of this month after four years as commandant.  For Mercado, who was selected from a field of 30 applicants, the idea of returning to his alma mater has not entirely sunk in.  "It's an honor," Mercado said. "When you're a cadet, you never envision you could come back in any capacity. For Gen. Rosa and the Board of Visitors to have confidence in me is something I don't take lightly at all."
