Hines lifts Bulldogs past Bucs

Just a week ago, The Citadel shut out then third-ranked South Carolina by playing mistake-free baseball in a confidence-boosting upset at Riley Park.  The Bulldogs promptly fell flat by committing 13 errors and giving up 26 runs while losing two of three games at Furman. But in winning 11-3 at Charleston Southern on Tuesday afternoon, the Bulldogs looked a lot more like the team that shocked the Gamecocks.

Although the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland was a little too dramatic when she screamed, “Off with her head!,” that theme has set the stage for the Lowcountry Highroller’s third home bout of the season.

Who fired first Civil War shot? A dispute in Fla.

Hours after the Pensacola incident, another pre-war clash took place in South Carolina — cadets from The Citadel military academy manning a battery on Morris Island fired on the steamship Star of the West as it tried to resupply 200 federal troops at Fort Sumter. The cadets forced the steamship to turn back and others consider that action the first shots of the war, not the larger fight that happened at Fort Sumter three months later.

"You can get real far down in the weeds about all of this," said Winfred B. Moore Jr., The Citadel's dean of humanities and social studies. "The truth is that what happened on April 12, 1861, at Fort Sumter had far, far greater significance than all of these events that came before."

BURGER COLUMN: Florence Crittenton Home provides safe haven

Tears come quickly when Baird Sanders talks about what might have been.  Sanders grew up knowing he was adopted, but little else. But he was lucky. He was raised in a loving home, provided a good education, and lived a normal life.  Since graduating from The Citadel, he’s married, has been blessed with three children, and started his own asphalt company. 
That something turned out to be giving back, which is what Sanders is doing now as president of the Florence Crittenton Programs of S.C., which serves more than 70 young women each year in this area.

Greenway trail (letter to the editor - scroll down)

In 2004, a study conducted by Dr. Jeff Davis with The Citadel, Clemson University and South Carolina State University ranked the bicycle friendliness of the bridge as an F.
