Douglas is Dogs' song and sack man

For a choirboy, The Citadel's Derek Douglas makes a pretty mean defensive tackle.  Along with his all-district and MVP honors as a football player at Sachse High School in Garland, Texas, Douglas was nominated for best actor in a musical.  "It was called 'Once Upon a Mattress,' " Douglas said. "I played the role of Prince Dauntless."  He also won the International Thespian Society's best actor award in 2008, was named outstanding choir student three years running, and sang in the Acappella Choir and the Madrigal Singers.

Historic motives (letter to the editor)

Well, "History distorted" on Sept. 24 does have an interesting point of view. I have a completely opposite one.  I am a Southerner and have been since birth. I graduated from the College of Charleston with a history degree and The Citadel with an MAT, concentration in Social Studies. I have taught U.S. history and global history. I do believe that history is something that we should study, consider and learn from.

Rain fails to dampen war heroes' spirits

Army Cpl. Ronald Rosser earned his Medal of Honor 58 years ago on the steep hills of Korea in a place where the snow piled up several feet deep. By comparison, Wednesday's downpour that spoiled part of the Medal of Honor Society's parade motorcade was a mere nuisance.  "It wasn't anything to have it (the temperature) 30 or 40 degrees below zero," Rosser recalled of his days living in a foxhole. "Even rats froze to death in my bunker."

SC budget board suspends college construction

State lawmakers put construction projects at some South Carolina public colleges on hold Wednesday as a way to force them to lower tuition costs.  The state Budget and Control Board voted unanimously to suspend capital projects at colleges that have raised tuition costs above the national norm. The vote applies to more than a dozen colleges: four-year colleges that have raised tuition for in-state students more than 7 percent, and to two-year schools where in-state tuition increased more than 6.3 percent -- rates set in the Higher Education Price Index.

State bans some colleges from new construction

A state budget panel has put a moratorium on state college construction for schools that raise tuition by 7 percent or more. 
The move would not affect construction at the University of South Carolina, which raised annual tuition this fall by 6.9 percent over the summer. But Clemson University, the College of Charleston and Medical University of South Carolina are among the schools that would be restricted from new construction unless the schools agree to repeal tuition increases to 7 percent or less.

t was supposed to be a summit, the beginning of an extended discussion on what could be done to arrest the trend of steadily increasing tuition rates at colleges and universities in South Carolina.  Instead, Tuesday's gathering of legislators and college officials, put together by Gov. Mark Sanford and held at a packed auditorium on the airport campus of Midlands Technical College, merely underscored the starkly different views of what has happened in higher education over the past decade.  The governor and college officials disagreed on the fundamental question of whether the state has increased or decreased funding to colleges.

Governor, higher education leaders dicker over dollars

Gov. Mark Sanford and educational leaders clashed over how much money is flowing to schools, the core question at Tuesday's higher education summit.  The governor, top lawmakers and higher education leaders from across the state gathered on the airport campus of Midlands Technical College to debate both dollars and the state's educational direction. 
Two differing analyses of the numbers brought the focus to a question: Is state funding drastically lower, or on the increase thanks to lottery scholarships?

Letters to the Editor (letter to the editor)

I remember fondly a conversation I had with Maj. Herbert L. Day, USMC (ret.), during my audition and before I started my tenure as a knob in The Citadel's Regimental Band. He said, 'Never let the sons of bitches get you down, Mace.'  'Yes sir,' was all I could muster. He reminded me of my father. He was quick and witty. And he always told it like it was no matter what.

Gov. Mark Sanford, legislators and college officials made little headway in a meeting meant to jump-start discussions on how to make tuition at South Carolina's public colleges more affordable.  Sanford acknowledged Tuesday that little was accomplished in the 2½-hour gathering he organized months before his departure from office. He says he hoped attendees at least would agree on how much colleges collect and spend.  But college officials argue that numbers put up by Sanford and the Commerce Department were faulty.

C.J.

He can sign a letter of intent during November's early signing period and would report to The Citadel for the 2011-2012 season.

Paladins pull plug on Bulldogs' rally

GREENVILLE -- Citadel football players were bouncing with excitement in the fourth quarter Saturday after slicing rival Furman's lead to 10 points and then recovering an onside kick.  "We had a little momentum there," Bulldogs coach Kevin Higgins said.  The momentum didn't last long -- six plays and less than two minutes, to be exact.  Max Lerner's interception and a back-breaking 35-yard touchdown pass from Furman quarterback Cody Worley to Daniel McFadden with 8:39 left keyed the Paladins to a 31-14 victory before 12,791 fans at sweltering Paladin Stadium.

His 35-yard pass to Daniel McFadden put Furman ahead 24-7 with 8:39 to play, and his 3-yard touchdown run with 3:19 left gave Furman its final margin.

Marc Buoniconti paralyzed on the field, but not in life

...Buoniconti, 43, says this from his mechanized wheelchair in the living room of his high-rise condo with its commanding views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. A smile plays across his still-boyish face at the thought of all that glorious, dreamy mobility.  Next month it will be 25 years since Buoniconti slumped to the turf as he made a tackle for The Citadel in an otherwise unremarkable college football game. He was rendered a quadriplegic at that ghastly moment, never again to move his arms or legs on his own. ...

Carrying His Weight

At Citadel football practices this season, NFL scouts have done due diligence on the Bulldogs' sure-handed tight end, Alex Sellars, and rangy cornerback Cortez Allen.  Inevitably, there's a question for coach Kevin Higgins: Who is No. 95?  That would be fifth-year senior Erik Clanton, a 6-3, 238-pound defensive end who is making a name for himself this season.  "Many of the scouts wonder, 'Could Erik be an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense?' " Higgins said. "That's something that has to be answered, but he's certainly earning their attention."

Clanton believes in team, self


After recording 1 1/2 quarterback sacks in Saturday’s 26-14 victory againstPresbyterian, The Citadel’s senior defensive end knows he is 6 1/2 shy of tying the Bulldogs’ record of 12 in one season. It’s a goal the former high school standout at Spring Valley set for himself before the season. “After I looked at the record and saw the teams that we were playing and the types of offenses they run, I thought there was no reason why I couldn’t get two sacks a game,” Clanton said.

Hey Solider - You're In the Smart-Phone Army Now!

Remember how the Army would pretty much issue only uniforms and boots to recruits who showed up for basic training? Well, some lucky soldiers will soon be getting something extra -- an iPhone or a similarly smart phone. "We actually have a pilot study going on right now where we're issuing these things to soldiers in basic training," Lieut. General Mark Hertling said as he pulled his iPhone from a camouflaged shoulder pocket at breakfast Tuesday. Several hundred newbie troops at Missouri's Fort Leonard Wood and Oklahoma's Fort Sill will soon get either the popular Apple gimcrack or an Evo Android smart phone to make their transition into the Army go a little more smoothly. "It has everything a soldier needs to know," Hertling says.

The turning point of Demetrius Jackson’s career at The Citadel came not on the practice field or during a game.  It came on a fall day in 2007, in the office of Bulldogs coach Kevin Higgins.  Demetrius Jackson tackles Furman's Mike Brown in a 2008 game. Jackson has changed his number and attitude toward football since coming on campus.  “It felt like his bags were literally packed to go when he walked into my office,” Higgins recalled this week.  Jackson, then a freshman defensive back from Columbus, Ga., had acquitted himself on the field, playing in nine games as a rookie on the 2007 team that went 7-4.

A clear message; College of Charleston student shares story to protect hearing

But the Stratford High School graduate, who competed in July for Miss South Carolina representing the College of Charleston, is passionate about spreading the word after she had sudden hearing loss at the end of her sophomore year. She's been making appearances at elementary, middle and high schools in an attempt to persuade kids to be proactive.  Her story is timely in the wake of a recent study published in the Aug. 18 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association, which showed that hearing loss among American teens (ages 12-19) jumped from 15 percent during a period of 1988-94 to 19.5 percent in 2005-06.

I learned how to work in a professional setting," said the Nigerian native whose family moved to Houston after winning a U.S. Embassy-sponsored lottery to come to America in 1999.

Through its higher education system, our state already possesses many of the economic components essential to success in our complex new world. Our universities are hubs of intellect and innovation, business incubation, high-tech research and graduate education.  Unfortunately, at a time when our public institutions of higher education should be leveraged as our state's primary asset in a knowledge-based economy, our state is rapidly reducing its financial support of higher education. This is a dangerous trend for a state that already underfunds higher education relative to other states, including our closest neighbors.
