Citadel blues (letter to the editor)

At the end of the December 2010 semester, a third-year cadet was expelled from The Citadel. This cadet had broken a Citadel standard while at home in Florida over summer break. In the tradition of honor and honesty of the school he turned himself in. His motivation for doing this was his own sense of honor and desire to live up to the Citadel code of honor.

N.J. historians track down Civil War veteran's grave at Hillside cemetery family plot

HILLSIDE — Forget those grade-school history lessons and all that talk of April 12, 1861 — the supposed start of the Civil War.  It was this month, 150 years ago, when a scrappy bunch of Citadel cadets lit a fuse and fired a cannonball across the bow of the Star of the West as the steamer churned toward the U.S. Army base of Fort Sumter, S.C., with 200 musket-toting troops and months of supplies in its hold.

Corruption and complicity

( Written by Dorothy Perrin Moore, Ph.D., is professor emerita of business and entrepreneurship at The Citadel.) Creating a successful personal brand begins with maintaining a high standard of ethics. But what can you do if you discover that you are working in a company that is acting illegally? Could you be a manager waiting to see if your company is going to be investigated and your possible involvement revealed?

Bobby Cox is a well-worn ballglove, wrinkled and tan and perhaps replaced a little too soon.  "Retirement," Cox said, "has been real busy."  The notion that the Charleston RiverDogs and The Citadel landed the ideal guest speaker for tonight's 7th annual Hot Stove Banquet was confirmed when the event had to be moved to McAlister Field House to accommodate demand for the longtime Atlanta Braves manager. Ticket sales were cut off at 600.

City growing greener with new gym, community center

Charleston's new Arthur W. Christopher Community Center, one of the first buildings in South Carolina constructed with the help of federal stimulus funds, was dedicated Wednesday on the city's West Side.  The community center replaces the Arthur Christopher City Gym, which was about half the size of the new 24,000-square-foot community center. The gym was sold to The Citadel in 2006 for $2.2 million, and the city used that money toward the $7.3 million cost of the new building.

Time to hand out midseason awards in the SoCon

Extreme makeover award - No team has done as quick an about-face as The Citadel, which got hammered at College of Charleston on Jan. 15 for its fifth straight loss, then fell behind by 13 points in the second half at Samford. It looked mighty grim at that point.  But the Bulldogs rallied to beat Samford and have won four straight by double digits after Wednesday's 85-75 victory at Davidson, thereby announcing themselves as a threat to do some damage in the SoCon tournament. Hey, these new Citadel players are pretty good.

"I think we're just paying more attention to detail, buckling down on offense and defense, and we're executing."

Wildcats’ big 2nd half not enough to catch Citadel

It looked like two utterly different basketball games Wednesday night at Davidson College’s Belk Arena.  Davidson’s Wildcats out-hustled and outshot the Citadel Bulldogs and easily won the second half, 51 to 39. But that wasn’t enough to overcome a cold-shooting first half that left the Cats behind 46-24 at the break.  Though Davidson got as close as 8 points near the end, Citadel hung on for an 85-75 victory

As usual, Clay Matthews Sr. was busy when the cell phone rang. Active as ever at 82, he was working out at a suburban Houston health club.  "Impressing the women? No," the Charleston native said with a chuckle. "I'm just trying to stay alive, that's what I'm doing. I go to the gym every day."

Unemployed not looking for dream job, just work

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Forty-five-year-old J.P. Stathakis ('87) never thought he'd find himself in the legion of the unemployed, but there he was, a graduate of The Citadel, sucked under in the recession's tidal wave in 2009.  Now he is thankful for his job on the maintenance crew at Borg Warner in Seneca, where he operates a forklift, among other duties. It's a long way from being self-employed, but Stathakis said he has learned some valuable lessons.

SoCon focus takes hold for hard-working Cougs

There is a pattern here, a series of developments that might tilt Southern Conference basketball back into maroon madness by March.  The College of Charleston going into today's home game against The Citadel is undefeated in league play (11-5 overall, 4-0 SoCon). That isn't such a big deal, as the 2009-10 Cougars got off to an 8-0 SoCon start before finishing 14-4 and watching Wofford win the tournament title ticket to The Big Dance.

Clemson partners with Kenyan university

Clemson University and Narok University College of Kenya have entered an agreement to partner in teaching and research projects on wildlife and natural resources.  Narok University College was established in 2007 as a campus of Moi University and separated as an independent university in 2008. It is the first university in the Maasai land, which stretches from Kenya to Tanzania. Because the school is new and the region is impoverished, their resources and experiences are thin. It is an area, however, that includes some of the best-known wildlife preserves and natural resources in the world, Clemson said.

Colleges should post expenses (editorial)

Colleges across South Carolina have squawked, justifiably, about severe cuts in their state funding. They have raised tuition in response and have incurred the ire of legislators by doing so.  Trident Technical College is one of the first, with its site expected to be accessible soon.  Even more illuminating will be postings by the four-year public colleges. The Citadel, the University of South Carolina, Clemson, Francis Marion, Coastal Carolina and Lander are also in the process of setting up sites.

Wattad's career night helps Mocs survive Dogs

On the bench during the timeout, Austin Dahn had a feeling the basketball was going to come his way.  "I was telling myself in the huddle that I was ready," said The Citadel's 6-4 senior. "I knew Cam (Wells) would draw in the defenders, and I was ready to knock it down."  But Dahn's open 3-pointer from the right corner bounced off the rim with 4 seconds left, and Chattanooga survived for a 69-68 victory over The Citadel on Thursday night before 1,653 fans at McAlister Field House.

Chattanooga basketball coach John Shulman affectionately calls his players "goofballs" for their penchant for making the occasional silly play.  But his goofballs also are good enough to be just one of two teams unbeaten in Southern Conference play heading into the Mocs' game tonight at The Citadel. Chattanooga is just 8-8 overall, but its 4-0 record in league play is tops in the SoCon North Division and matches that of SoCon South leader College of Charleston.  The Mocs are "playing their best ball of the season," said Citadel coach Chuck Driesell.

Author visits Citadel to discuss early Civil War action

CHARLESTON — A noted Civil War author is visiting The Citadel to discuss the Star of the West skirmish in which Citadel cadets fired what are believed to be the first shots of the war.  James Lee Conrad lectures at the military school today. 
In January 1861, cadets fired on the Star of the West, a ship attempting to bring supplies to Union-held Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. His first book was “The Young Lions: Confederate Cadets at War.” It described the role cadets from military schools, including The Citadel, played in the Civil War.

Dan Johnson, who was sworn into office Wednesday, said a woman handed him the check at a campaign event but asked if he would hold it for a few days until she had the money in her bank account. He said the check helps him remember who he is serving.  “This office does not belong to me,” Johnson said. “I’m holding it in the public trust. Her faith and confidence in me to give me her last dollars will always stay with me. I will never cash that check.”

Colleges praised for value: Kiplinger's ranks USC, C of C, Clemson in top 100

In response to skyrocketing tuition rates, South Carolina's Budget and Control Board in September issued an ultimatum to four-year schools that raised tuition more than 7 percent and to two-year schools that raised it more than 6.3 percent: Roll it back for spring semester or face a moratorium on new campus construction projects.  Only The Citadel did not roll back tuition.

Thieves strike at James Island mayor's house

Until his own house was burglarized, James Island Mayor Bill Woolsey (Citadel economics professor) thought the crime wave that plagued the town this summer had ended.  Two days after Christmas, Woolsey returned home from holiday traveling to find his back door wide open. A wide-screen television and two laptop computers were missing. Then, while he was walking his dog on New Year's Day, he saw Charleston County sheriff's deputies at a neighbor's home, investigating another burglary.

Arizona rookie coming on strong after slow start

TEMPE, Ariz. — Andre Roberts admits he was lost in training camp, overwhelmed by the transition from football at The Citadel to the complex, competitive world of the NFL. With a military background to keep him disciplined, Roberts kept working — catching passes after practice day after day, running routes, working on his punt returns. Suddenly, it all seems to have clicked for the speedy, soft-spoken wide receiver.

Convicted killer up for parole

A man who shot his wife more than 20 times while she showered more than two decades ago will make his fifth bid for parole today.  James M. Watson was convicted of killing Cynthia Summer Watson after a jury deliberated for less than three hours. The former ROTC training officer at The Citadel was sentenced to life in prison but is eligible for parole because life sentences weren't guaranteed until the Legislature passed a 'truth-in-sentencing' bill in the mid-1990s.

Sanford releases $5B plan

COLUMBIA — State workers would take more unpaid time off, colleges would lose at least $68 million and the state would end funding for its museum and arts programs under the $5 billion budget proposal outgoing Gov. Mark Sanford released Tuesday.  Sanford took time in his final executive budget to snipe at the legislators he blames for the more than $800 million shortfall they must deal with next week. That shortfall is a mix of slower state tax collection and the loss of one-time federal bailout cash.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE

Aren't players also college students?

Help me here. Five Ohio State players are proven guilty of NCAA violations but allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl. And the quote from Terrelle Pryor, "I didn't mean to hurt nobody at all..." Aren't these guys supposed to be in college? Col. Rembert at The Citadel would have given me an F for that double negative. The Dogs might not win as many but we are smarter than the Buckeyes. By the way, I played football in college, so I'm not just an academic guy.

Hoops: Defense carries Tigers to victory

CLEMSON — Following Clemson’s 69-54 win against The Citadel on Sunday, Tigers coach Brad Brownell corrected a misconception about his coaching philosophy.  “As much as everyone wants to write about my motion offense and style and all of those sorts of things … I’m a defensive coach,” Brownell said. “If you go back and look at my records, look at my teams, we are usually among the better defensives teams in the league and sometimes one of the better defensive teams in the country.”

Citadel seniors get their last shot at a major upset today

Citadel seniors have accomplished a lot during their basketball careers: the military school's second 20-win season and first postseason bid in 2009, and the winningest two-year stretch in Bulldogs history.  Two of them, Cameron Wells and Zach Urbanus, have cracked the 1,000-point club, and a third, Austin Dahn, will join them before season's end, making them just the third trio of classmates to do so in school history.

Citadel, C of C make major strides in athletic facilities

Former Citadel athletic director Les Robinson liked to call Johnson Hagood Stadium "the front porch" of the military school. 
"It's more than a football stadium," Robinson said. "It's a place where Citadel alumni take great pride in coming to events like homecoming, much more than at other schools. It's our front porch."  When Robinson spoke those words in September 2002, the front porch, built in 1948, was a rusted-out hulk and looked like it might collapse at any moment.
