Three months ago, those lessons on measuring area came in handy for adults on the farm too, like Drew Harrison, executive director of the Green Heart Project, which operates the farm. That’s when the farm’s area increased to an eighth of an acre; the growth was funded by $5,000 from a grant Boeing gave the College of Charleston for a farm-to-school initiative, Harrison said. Mitchell is acting as a pilot program in that project.

Is S.C. State University's board of trustees really so bad?

It seems the Citadel cannot stay out of court. Last December, a former cadet brought suit against the school in a hazing incident, claiming breach of contract and assault and battery. Of course, hazing is against state law and Citadel policy. The fact that the school cannot enforce its own rules means the taxpayers of South Carolina are on the hook for more legal fees and probably penalties. And it suggests that something is seriously wrong with an administration and a board of visitors that cannot manage their house any better.

Mouthpiece Could Ease Stress, Hasten Recovery in Athletes

“Something has to be happening with that change in position that causes hormonal changes,” said Wesley D. Dudgeon, an assistant professor and director of the Exercise Science Graduate Program at the Citadel. “You can’t fake a stress hormone.”  Dudgeon and his colleagues embarked on the study because there hasn’t much inquiry into how mouthpieces might affect performance. Most research is focused on how they protect the mouth. It should be noted that BiteTech helped finance the research by the Citadel and College of Charleston, though it insists it did not meddle in the study.
