The Omaha formula: Save Wojo

Fred Jordan insists he is not presiding over a great baseball team.  "Unselfish" is the way the Citadel baseball coach describes the 2010 Bulldogs, who Sunday capped a first-place regular season with a Southern Conference tournament title. 
Eventually enough unselfishness turns out just great -- maybe Omaha-great.

Wojo shines as Bulldogs claim SoCon title

Fred Jordan's phone rang at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday. On the line was The Citadel's ace pitcher Asher Wojciechowski.  "He said, 'I want the rock,' " reported Jordan, the Bulldogs' coach. "And I gave him two or three reasons why we may go with a different plan. He said, 'That's fine, but I'm pitching tomorrow.' And there wasn't any way I was going to argue with him."

Beth Padgett: Don't forget about Iraq this weekend

Memorial Day will find Col. Tom James in Iraq, a country he has come to know quite well. James, who grew up in Greenville and now is chief of staff of the 3rd Infantry Division, has spent much time over the past few years in the war-torn country that once consumed our nation’s attention and now has faded from view as the military’s focus and fight has shifted to Afghanistan.

For the fallen

When the music starts, even members of the Charleston Men's Chorus will have a few tears in their eyes as they honor their fallen comrades in their annual Memorial Day Concert Monday.  The musical medley has a strong Charleston connection, too. It was arranged, along with many other Charleston Men's Chorus pieces, by another veteran, the late Col. Earl Mays, who served in World War II and directed bands and vocal music at The Citadel from 1967-84.

Ultimate goal; Charleston firefighter trains relentlessly for mixed martial arts bout

David Griffin bobs and weaves as his bare feet dance across the padded floor of the chain-link cage. His eyes narrow as they lock on their target and he unleashes a flurry of punches. Jab! Jab!

Hats off, for good

After four years of marching to The Citadel's demanding drumbeat, many cadets are more than happy to shed their uniforms when they depart.  Thus bits and pieces of their college careers are left in the slipstream, like remnants of a battle that tell a story without speaking a word.  These are the things that are gathered from the barracks and trash bins by The Citadel Women's Club and sold to the public at an annual garage sale.

Bryant: The colleges’ secrecy fetish

The University of South Carolina recently paid $890,000 to a felon to get out of a deal with him for buildings that he never built at Innovista. One might chuckle at that sort of spending in a government bureaucracy — but it could be your money.  The $890,000 adds only a drop to the bucket of $58 million in direct state aid to Innovista. The $58 million in state money has been nearly doubled by local taxpayers. For more than $100 million, we now have two empty buildings down by the river.

Mom now a polished co-owner at marble and granite business

Sometime in the future, she probably will return to her "past life" in nursing. But for now, Lauren Beckley is rock solid about working with marble and granite.  Beckley's husband, David Beckley, is an assistant baseball coach at The Citadel. The flexible hours that make Lauren's job so attractive to her come in handy for the couple and their children, who all love Citadel baseball. The Beckleys and their 7-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son see many Citadel home games together and sometimes travel together for road games.

Sanford decision sparks no questions

S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster appeared before Charleston's Sertoma Club on Wednesday but didn't get a single question about his big decision two days ago.  DuBose Kapeluck, an assistant political science professor at The Citadel, said he doesn't expect McMaster's handling of the Sanford affair to have any bearing on the June 8 primary.  "I don't think it's on the top of voters' minds anymore," he said. "It would have been shocking if he did decide to go for criminal sanctions."

First Ashbrook baseball coach remembered as respected leader

GASTONIA – In many respects, once you’re a coach, you’re always a coach.  That was certainly the case for veteran local high school coach Gaither Cline, who died March 28 at 76.  Justin Sparrow, a junior wrestler at The Citadel, says his grandfather was giving him sound coaching right until just before he died.  "One of the last times I talked to him was during the Southern Conference championships," said Sparrow of the early March tournament held at Davidson College. "I was wrestling the No. 1 seed and he talked about how I just needed to remember my fundamentals and wrestle the way I knew how. I ended up going to the finals after winning that match."
