What's new? An update on people and issues featured in Moxie's first year

Ready to roll: Derby team practicing for first bout - The Lowcountry Highrollers, Charleston's first roller-derby team, was practicing for its first competition when we met them in March. We wondered whether the Holy City would support a sport described as "a catfight on wheels," with some players donning miniskirts and fishnet stockings.

Turns out Charleston has embraced it.

The 800 seats at the Omar Shrine Temple were sold out for the first bout, said Wendy Jernigan, aka Red Dread. So the team moved its remaining three home bouts to The Citadel's McAlister Field House, where 1,500-1,800 spectators showed up each time.

The half grows in interest

While the 5K is, by far, the most common distance for running and walking events, the half-marathon is the most popular, according to Running USA's National Runner Survey in 2008.  The route, which would start and end on Calhoun Street near Roper Hospital, still is being hammered out but would include some sequence of looping north to Hampton Park, west on the connector to Folly Road and south to The Battery.  One problem, she notes, is that The Citadel won't know if it has a home game until February or March.

Increasing black enrollment starts with tuition costs

THERE'S A LOT of room for debate over what to do when black enrollment drops at the state's flagship universities because academic standards are being ratcheted up and many black students can't meet them: Higher standards make a college education worth more, but it might actually be worth more to our state to help make sure less-advantaged students (which many black students are) get a good education. So should the schools find a way to make exceptions for African-Americans? Should they push down the standards for everyone? Or should we focus our attention on K-12, which turned out the students who couldn't make the grade?

The College of Charleston is hosting a panel discussion Thursday on a topic with which some South Carolina politicians are increasingly familiar: explaining themselves after a scandal.  The forum will look at communication challenges posed by political scandals involving both Democrats and Republicans, paying particular attention to recent news involving South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, under fire for an affair that caused him to leave the country earlier this summer, and U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., who shouted 'You lie!' during President Barack Obama's recent address to Congress.

C of C lacks funds for new center

The College of Charleston doesn't have enough money in its coffers to finish second-floor interior work at its new $58 million science center.  College of Charleston’s new science building, at the corner of Calhoun and Coming streets, was slated to be ready for students by early next year, but school officials say they do not have the funding to complete the interior of the second floor. This money gap also is making it difficult for the college to move forward with another pressing unfunded project: The overhaul of the old Rita Liddy Hollings science building. According to faculty members, the Hollings complex has a serious mold problem that's making them and their students sick.

New life springs up in burned forest

The April blaze that consumed 30 square miles of mostly pine stands and coastal swamps, or bays, didn’t kill the longleaf pine savannas. It rejuvenated them.  The fire did $25 million in damage to some 70 homes in subdivisions cut into the edges of those thick-growing, flammable wilds.“We need to make sure we burn periodically here,” said botanist Richard Porcher, a professor emeritus with The Citadel. “You have a normal fire, and everything comes right back. If you don’t (burn), when you do have a fire you have a holocaust.”

"I hadn't played in a real football game in more than a year."  Citadel coach Kevin Higgins wasted little time getting Starks, a redshirt freshman from Atlanta, over his pre-game jitters. He sent Starks in at QB on the Bulldogs' second play -- after a false-start penalty, Starks was tackled for a 1-yard loss -- and used him throughout the game, both at quarterback and receiver.
