Many are casting stones (letter to the editor)

I certainly agree that Joe Paterno came across as overly sanctimonious at times. I also believe the president of the NCAA is acting a bit sanctimonious. Why the panic to come down with such a quick decision? Many NCAA violations are debated for years before a decision is rendered. Does it have to do with who it was? Would the punishment have been the same if it were a Syracuse, Citadel or Wofford committing those crimes?

Civil Rights Abuse Common at Many Universities

Given the implications for looking the other way, universities have been reminded of their primary purpose in our society, which is to provide advanced education. Football is simply a method by which a few can obtain it. Our entire society being so driven by money, academia has been blurred by idol-worshiping, greed and a lust for winning at any cost. I bet Penn State and The Citadel covered all seven deadly sins by facilitating an environment in which the protection of children was disregarded. Penn State got a big lesson. The Citadel in Charleston, SC, awaits its fate.

Citadel remains committed to full review of ReVille case

All who are part of The Citadel family have been committed to a full understanding of what happened in the Skip ReVille case.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  In fact, as a disciplined institution, we initiated a formal process seeking to understand, with accountability and transparency, what transpired and how we could improve.

After praying for three hours in a campus chapel at The Citadel in the summer of 2001, child molester Louis “Skip” ReVille came to a decision: He needed to come clean about his sexual encounters with young boys.

ReVille, a graduate of the military college, knew he was wrong to lure boys to his room for masturbation sessions while serving as a counselor at the school’s summer camp. So after intensive prayer, he marched over to the campus police department.ReVille asked an officer how he could report a case of sexual misconduct at the summer camp. “They replied with ‘Not us. We don’t handle those,’” he later recalled.Public safety officers sent ReVille on his way without referring him to another department. “I was trying to turn myself in,” he said.

As Citadel guard Marshall Harris sprints to the wing, assistant coach Rob Burke barks instructions.

“I want to see you get squared up!” Burke yells. “And I want to see you stroke the shot!”

Last summer, such a workout — supervised by coaches — would have been against NCAA rules. But thanks to a reform package passed by the NCAA in January, college basketball coaches are now allowed to spend eight hours per week with their teams while the players are in summer school.

The Great Don Conroy

 read somewhere that writing may destroy your life, so you might as well tell a story worthy of that. These words return to me as I settle into Pat Conroy’s My Reading Life, where Conroy recounts bestowing the character Ben Meecham, the dutiful son of a marine fighter pilot in The Great Santini, his own story of physical abuse and “unbearable solitude” at the hands of a bold and domineering military father.

Community mourns 2 S.C. Guard troops

Louise Parker, Linda Scott, June Maranville and Jane Bennett lined up just after 8 a.m. for Rawl's procession. Parker and Scott knew the Rawl family. Maranville came because Rawl went to The Citadel, where her son also graduated. Bennett is Maranville's mother. "I'm representing my son," Maranville said. "He couldn't be here, but he called to make sure I was going to be here."
