Coroner goes above and beyond

As bands march by and fire engines blare, there is one elected official noticeably missing from the parade line-up in the Haleyville parade. Just minutes before the event began, Coroner Christopher D. Nisbet turned on his lights and sirens and headed towards the interstate. A fatality had occurred on I-95 and as Coroners statewide can attest, they are never off duty. The scene was tragic; three young Citadel cadets traveling for a sporting event lose control of their car from a suspected tire defect. Two die on the scene and one was transported to the hospital. Clarke Russell is one of the young men who dies there. It’s the County Coroner’s job to document the scene, preserve evidence, take possession of the remains and notify the families. In most counties, it’s the lowest paying countywide elected position and most would agree it’s also the most emotionally trying.

Looking Back: John E. Burrows of Muskegon named commander for outstanding record at The Citadel

This week 72 years ago… John E. Burrows, whose family moved to Muskegon in 1929, began a distinguished three decade long career in the U.S. Army when he entered his senior year at The Citadel.  The Muskegon Chronicle said on June 2, 1939...

Today, for the first time since The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina, was founded in 1842, a Michigan youth will be regimental commander of the South Carolina corps of cadets, highest position conferred upon any cadet. The youth is Cadet Col. John E. Burrows of Muskegon, Muskegon High School’s leading graduate in February 1936. In three years of military life at The Citadel, Burrows has established the most brilliant combined scholastic, athletic and military record in the college’s history. Cadet Burrows, a senior, will command the corps during the college session 1939-40.

Citadel tuition hike (letter to the editor - scroll down)

The April 30 article titled "Citadel seeks tuition hike" was very distressing. Having worked for The Citadel Foundation for several years as my class representative, I know firsthand the financial hardships that confront The Citadel.  No longer state-supported and barely state assisted, The Citadel and our other higher education schools in the state are suffering. The Citadel has no choice but to raise tuition to both in-state and out-of-state students.

Sadly, tuition will still increase. But it is a less dramatic jump than students and their parents initially faced last year when Sen. Hugh Leatherman, R-Florence, intervened. As a member of the state Budget and Control Board, he threatened to freeze all capital projects at colleges where tuition went up more than 7 percent. All but The Citadel acquiesced in the fall. The military college's tuition grew by 13 percent.

Bulldogs on the outside looking in: Sweep of WCU doesn’t guarantee Citadel spot in SoCon tournament

The last time The Citadel failed to make the Southern Conference baseball tournament was in 1987.  Back then, legendary coach Chal Port still ran the Bulldogs, current Citadel coach Fred Jordan was at Stratford High School, and current Bulldog players had not yet been born.  Twenty-four years later, The Citadel is on the brink of again missing the eight-team SoCon tournament, set for next week at Riley Park.

Ex-Citadel star back in the bigs: McPherson up with Chicago White Sox

Citadel baseball coach Fred Jordan can't swear that Dallas McPherson never considered giving up.  "It definitely crossed his mind," Jordan said of the former Bulldogs standout. "He would say, if I can't get a (baseball) job, I'll have to go to work."  Three years after his last big-league hit, and 10 years after he was a second-round pick of the Angels, McPherson is back in Major League Baseball. His pinch-hit single Tuesday night for the Chicago White Sox was his first MLB hit since Sept. 10, 2008.

Michael Todd will graduate from The Citadel on Saturday with a degree in criminal justice, but the Raleigh native hasn't landed a job yet.  Brent Stewart, career center director at The Citadel, said the job market is improving for college graduates but slowly.  "Companies look like they are entertaining hiring, but they are cautious," Stewart said.

Citadel’s Allen in demand

Ever since Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers passed for three touchdowns against the Steelers in the Super Bowl, Pittsburgh fans have been clamoring for cornerbacks.  They got two in this year’s NFL draft, including The Citadel’s Cortez Allen. The 6-1, 197-pound Allen was taken in the fourth round Saturday by the storied Steelers, the 128th overall pick in the 2011 draft. And by all accounts, Pittsburgh will expect Allen and third-round pick Curtis Brown of Texas to help on pass defense  immediately.
