Citadel solution (letter to the editor)

I have for decades believed that a common-sense solution to many of the enduring problems at The Citadel could be achieved if all cadets were inculcated - from their very first day as "knobs" - with the maxim that "no behavior will be tolerated in the Corps of Cadets which would in the regular armed forces result in judicial or non-judicial punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice."

Ponte Vedra Beach: Recollections of Halloweens past

A decade has flown by since I wrote a personal column about my grandson, Drew Daniel, now a sophomore at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. In October of 2002, Drew was a fourth grader at Marjorie K. Rawlings Elementary School. He had memorized, with my help, a few Ogden Nash poems for a special appearance in the poetry chair during morning announcements.

Do incentives pay off for S.C.?

Ross Sobel, a visiting scholar at The Citadel, is no fan of incentives, saying they benefit just six out of every 1,000 South Carolina businesses and that "they have a lot of hidden costs." For example, the system is set up in a way that small companies without the cash to hire high-powered lawyers and lobbyists can end up subsidizing larger competitors, he said.

SPARTANBURG — Wofford, a Southern Conference power celebrating its Homecoming Week, was averaging 40.1 points per game with a yard-gobbling Wingbone attack.  “But we ran the option in high school,” Citadel freshman linebacker James Riley said.  “So I was used to seeing a lot of option plays.”

A salute to Roberts’ roots

Wide receiver Andre Roberts has already scored more touchdowns this season in seven games — five – than he had total in his first two seasons — four. I’m not sure he saw such an outburst coming, but he was ready for it. Right before the season, he started contemplating a post-touchdown celebration, although it wasn’t really a celebration. A salute “just came to me,” Roberts said, and it made sense, because Roberts attended the military school The Citadel in South Carolina.

The Citadel's new Canteen has some tasty deals

It’s not often you can go out to lunch for $10, but at The Citadel’s new dining hall, you can treat yourself and a friend to lunch for just that.  The Canteen has been the military university’s cafeteria alternative since the 1980s. Coated in a dated powder blue, the old Canteen’s tiled floors and narrow, semi-padded booths made the old snack bar feel like a 1985 McDonald’s.

"Girls and women in this generation have much more equitable access to sports and opportunities created for good athletes.
