Just no substitute for some common sense

Last time, while trying to describe tomatoes, I said they don't necessarily have to be sophisticated in appearance to deliver a sophisticated message to the palate. They're analogous to people in that sophistication on the outside may amount to no more than diddly squat.  Former Citadel microbiology professor Emory Crosby referred me to observations about sophistication by Archibald Rutledge as they appeared in "Life's Extras," originally published in 1928.

Gamecock champs (letter to the editor by BoV member)

As a lifelong Citadel sports fan, I congratulate the Carolina Gamecocks baseball team on their national championship. I take great pride in knowing that my mighty Bulldogs lost in the regional playoffs to the eventual national champions, as did the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in the Super Regional playoffs, as did the Clemson Tigers in the final bracket of the College World Series.

Letter: Tigers did well at College World Series

I spent a recent week in Omaha, Neb., at the College World Series watching our Clemson Tigers. My last trip was 20 years ago when my youngest son played for The Citadel in the 1990 World Series. I really cannot express how proud I was of our team and the class that it showed while representing our university.

Life in the Minors: 'It's a grind,' says ex-Bulldog McGuiness

Chris McGuiness recently enjoyed a rare in-season treat for a minor-league baseball player -- four nights in his own bedroom and his favorite home-cooked meal, ribs barbecued by Dad.  McGuiness, a James Island and Citadel graduate, was a 13th-round draft pick of the Boston Red Sox in 2009. In his 116 games as a professional baseball player over this season and last, the 6-1, 210-pounder has learned that there's a big difference between playing baseball at James Island or The Citadel, and playing it in the South Atlantic League. It's not all glamorous bus rides to desination cities such as Kannapolis and Rome and other outposts of the SAL.

State board approves Coastal Carolina University purchase of golf course

The S.C. Budget and Control Board unanimously approved a measure this morning allowing Coastal Carolina University to purchase a Conway golf course that the school previously leased under a controversial agreement.  Coastal proposed to buy Quail Creek Golf Course, 107 Citadel Drive, for about $3 million from Chestnut Holding, LLC, a West Virginia-based company. CCU has leased the 188-acre course since 2005 as part of its golf management program, a deal that could have been extended to 2020 but came under criticism for costing more than if the school purchased the property.
