Breaking barriers: Ministry trying to sow understanding for disabled, nondisabled

At the banquet last week, 10 Citadel cadets were among the volunteers. A red carpet was rolled out to receive the honored guests, and photographers snapped photo after photo. Volunteers greeted guests, ushered them inside the Seacoast building and served plates of food.  Cadets Chris Schnackenberg, Michael Brown and Rebecca Edwards were there because a Citadel "buddy dance" organized by the school's community service office showed them how rewarding this kind of interaction could be.

Retired Special Forces officer brings expertise to first novel

The devil's advocate question was not so devilish after all. For author Brad Taylor, who had given much thought to the matter, it was a softball pitch. Retired Special Forces officer Brad Taylor, author of the novel “One Rough Man.”  In the introductory pages of Taylor's debut novel, "One Rough Man" (Dutton), is the George Orwell quote, "People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm."

Their legacy is a rivalry

Like a lion in winter, the Bulldogs in free-fall showed a few flashes of the old roar.  Cameron Wells rejected a shot in the lane and nailed jumpers. Austin Dahn dropped his patented quick-trigger 3s in the right corner, and Zach Urbanus clogged passing lanes.  Better on Thursday night at McAlister Field House to remember Southern Conference glory days and not an 85-63 Citadel loss to the sizzling College of Charleston.

RALEIGH -- His last day in Charleston, new N.C. State running backs coach Everette Sands donned a light-blue Citadel shirt.   "I thought, 'Yeah, I better wear this now, because I can't wear this when I get up to North Carolina,' " he said, laughing.  Decked out in a new Wolfpack-red polo on Wednesday, Sands - who played running back for The Citadel, and spent the past six years there coaching the tailbacks - explained that he is already aware of the huge State-UNC rivalry (and thus, his need to put away all of his blue duds). And he's excited about the chance to help the Pack take the next step.

The Citadel dropped its fifth straight game Monday night before 1,347 fans at McAlister Field House, a disappointing campaign bottoming out with a 65-61 overtime loss to non-conference foe Savannah State.
