Citadel opposes efforts to add more claims, defendants to ReVille-related lawsuit

The Citadel is fighting efforts to add four school officials to a negligence lawsuit stemming from serial molester Louis “Skip” ReVille’s misconduct at the military college’s now-defunct summer camp. The college’s attorneys argue that it’s too late to add new defendants and allegations to a case that has been underway since December 2011. They contend that allowing the move would “dramatically change and expand the nature and scope of the claims” and “wreak havoc” on trial preparations, according to court papers.

Registration is now open for Storm The Citadel! 2014 trebuchet competition. The Citadel's STEM Center of Excellence and Google will host the popular event on the college’s campus, Feb. 15, 2014.

To compete, teams must complete an online application by December 15. Teams in the Hoplite Division will receive a trebuchet kit. All student teams (K-12) can request mentoring support and apply for funds to help with team expenses. 

 

To assist teams in preparing for the competition, The Citadel will host a free physics workshop on January 13, 2014, for mentors and teachers of registered teams in all divisions. To register a group for the competition or to learn more, please visit the Storm The Citadel! website or visit the competition’s Facebook page. The event draws a large crowd of enthusiastic onlookers; there is no admission charge. Take a peek at what to expect here.

 

Storm The Citadel! 2014 will kick off the college’s Eweek events, which are held in conjunction with National Engineers Week. The intent is to introduce Lowcountry students to engineering fields and activities. The Citadel has the fifth oldest engineering school in the United States.

Citadel coach Kevin Higgins said Monday he’s got a lot of respect for his counterpart at Clemson, Dabo Swinney. He particularly likes the way Swinney has worked out the final weeks of the Tigers’ 2013 football schedule. “They saw us on the schedule, so they made sure they got another option team, Georgia Tech, the week before,” said Higgins, whose Bulldogs play at No. 7 Clemson on Saturday. “And then they moved the Georgia Tech game up to Thursday, so they’d have more time to prepare for The Citadel.

The answer: “They wanted to prove they were not cowards, to prove they were men. Some of them needed the steady paycheck that came with a military job because they didn’t have the same job opportunities that whites had,” Cox said. “But most of all, they wanted to prove they were worthy of first-class citizenship.” Cox, a Southern University alum who teaches history at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., was back in Baton Rouge last week to talk about his new book.

University Center has been described as a partnership between Burke High and at least four colleges — MUSC, The Citadel, the College of Charleston and Trident Technical College — and they would develop courses for high school students to earn high school and college credit. The goal would be to better prepare Burke High graduates for college or career, as well as attract more downtown students to the school.

22_Hillary dissed at The Citadel (not web accessible)

It was a decidely partisan response at The Citadel last week when the Corps of Cadets uniformly applauded 2016 presidential contender Sen. Rand Paul’s shot at former U.S. senator and retired secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

During his 20-minute speech on U.S. defense priorities, Paul, R-Ky., repeated his oft-used punchline that Clinton, D-N.Y., should be precluded from running for high office as a result of the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi consulate affair.

The loud applause that followed surprised just about everyone gathered inside McAlister Field House, including Paul’s own traveling staff. Afterward, Paul tried to downplay the uproar.

“It was almost as loud as when they reacted to VMI,” Paul said, pointing to Saturday’s scheduled game against the Keydets that he made a reference to. “So I don’t think they like either one.”

Paul, though, did have to admit that the bulk of the cadets in attendance clearly lean to the right, politically.

“If I had to guess, they’re pretty conservative here at The Citadel,” he said.

This was Paul’s fourth trip to South Carolina this year.

29_Running Battles; Pat Conroy’s ‘Death of Santini’

The book assumes its reader has traveled to it via “The Great Santini” and maybe also “The Prince of Tides” and “The Lords of Discipline,” two of Conroy’s other best-known novels. That’s probably a safe guess, given how briskly they’ve sold, but it can come across as a self-flattering one, considering the way Conroy sometimes takes the measure of his oeuvre. Referring to the Citadel, the military academy that appears repeatedly in his work, he says, “I’ve ended up writing about my college as much as any writer in American history.” That’s one far-reaching statement.

You eat lunch with people every day.

Lowcountry welcomes Election Day with key races

"Essentially what drives slighter higher turnout is a competitive race at the local level other than that most voters don't even bother or realize unless they are paying close attention unless they see yard signs they don't even realize," Dr. Scott Buchanan says. "Name recognition is gold in politics and if you are the incumbent unless you have done something to alienate the viewers usually you are going to get re-elected be that if it is local city council, congress, or the president-- incumbents usually get re-elected."

Inside a frenzied Citadel locker room, coach Kevin Higgins was doused by ice water and crowd-surfed over happy players.  “Here’s what they said!” Higgins yelled. “They said this football team couldn’t come back and win a big game!”  For once in a disappointing season, the Bulldogs proved otherwise.

Hardwick known as treasured co-worker, friend (not web accessible)

If you were a Citadel graduate searching for your lost class ring, the school would have suggested you contact Herbert Olen Hardwick. Sometimes, Hardwick, known to most as Olen, searched for a ring that belonged to the person.

Other times, he searched for the person who belonged to a ring.

Hardwick worked as a trades specialist in maintenance at MUSC, but he spent many off hours combing Lowcountry beaches with his metal detectors, his wife, Paula Hardwick, an MUSC nurse, says.

He found a couple of Cita-del rings on Folly Beach and two or three more on the Isle of Palms; a Harvard University football coach’s ring on Isle of Palms; and an heirloom diamond engagement ring and wedding band on Folly.

A statement from M. Dawes Cooke Jr. on behalf of The Citadel

"This week there was a development in the pending civil litigation against The Citadel relating to Louis “Skip” ReVille. The most recent motion seeks to add individuals to the lawsuit and claim that they violated the civil rights of the Plaintiff. We will oppose this motion, and if it is granted we will vigorously defend these new claims. 

This motion is the most recent action in what has already been a lengthy process, which is far from over. The Plaintiff alleges, in essence, that Citadel employees deliberately helped Mr. ReVille molest children. This claim is utterly false, as has been shown through an investigation by SLED, through the Independent Review commissioned earlier this year by The Citadel Board of Visitors, and through the discovery that has been conducted in the civil litigation."
