Character front and center in S.C. congressional debate

Special elections typically draw few voters, so campaigns' turnout operations will be important for the May 7 vote. Although the demographics of a special election – older and more educated voters – may favor Republicans in this district, "the wild card is, are Republicans so disenchanted with Sanford that they just sit it out? That's the big question," says Scott Buchanan, director of the Citadel's Symposium on Southern Politics. "I suspect when all's said or done, it's more or less a referendum on Mark Sanford."

Charleston Southern and The Citadel met Tuesday at Riley Park, but baseball coaches from both schools have their eyes trained on May. That’s when conference tournaments will decide the ultimate fate of the 2013 season for both clubs. The Citadel’s 8-5 win over CSU included some encouraging signs for the Bulldogs, who have won eight straight, and not as many for the Buccaneers.

Citadel’s hustling Hughston Armstrong might be SoCon’s most improved player

Hughston Armstrong’s approach to baseball is simple. “Hustle,” The Citadel’s junior outfielder said. “As long as I play the game right, I think it will treat me well.” There’s no arguing with Armstrong’s results. The 5-7, 165-pounder from Ridge View High School in Columbia might be the most improved player in the Southern Conference, if not the nation.

Sapakoff column: We owe our kids a better ReVille report

As much as the official reaction to one of the worst child molestation cases in South Carolina history is muddled with gobs of legalese, the correct reaction was clear and simple from the beginning. “What we have to do when this is over,” Mount Pleasant police chief Harry Sewell said a few days after confessed sexual predator Skip ReVille was arrested in November of 2011, “is get everyone together — people from the places he worked, law enforcement, parents, some of the coaches around here, child abuse experts — and try to see how this happened and make sure it doesn't happen again.”

A sad lesson for The Citadel (editorial)

It’s good that The Citadel seems to have learned some tough lessons about handling sexual assault allegations. The Military College of South Carolina has agreed to follow all recommendations set out in an independent report on its handling of the Skip ReVille sexual assault case. Perhaps future students will, as a result, feel more confident that The Citadel will stand up for sexual abuse victims. Or better yet, work hard to minimize the risk of such crimes occurring at the school.

Citadel’s ReVille report says investigation inadequate, but no conspiracy

The Citadel investigation of its handling of a complaint about child molester Louis “Skip” ReVille was inadequate, but it did not engage in a conspiracy to keep it from the public, according to an independent review the military college released today. The investigation into the 2007 complaint, while well-intentioned, was insufficient because it was conducted only by the school’s lawyer, Mark Brandenburg, “a single administrative staff member operating in a vacuum of policy and procedure.” according to the report’s executive summary.

Building on Charleston’s success as a college town

(By Raymond S. Greenberg, P. George Benson, John W. Rosa Jr., Mary Thornley and Jairy C. Hunter Jr.)         When people think of Charleston, the first thing that often comes to mind is our history, which is so beautifully preserved in the buildings and neighborhoods around us. Our region is top of mind when it comes to tourist destinations and places to retire.

More recently, with the arrival of Boeing and the growth of the technology sector, Charleston is viewed globally as a hot market for commerce.

Graduates of The Citadel have distinguished themselves in the military, and in public service, such as Mayor Joe Riley, who championed Charleston’s renaissance.

Stop 'bad guys with guns' by implementing good policies

Tragedies involving children, such as the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School, fuel massive outrage and calls for immediate action to prevent similar atrocities. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has put forward a National Shield School Proposal which supports the placement of armed security in all schools. A new review by Gordon and Angela Crews from Marshall University in West Virginia and Catherine Burton from The Citadel in South Carolina attempts to find a balanced and unbiased view of the facts within this heated and emotional debate. Their paper, which appears in the American Journal of Criminal Justice, published by Springer, sets out what these proposals would mean to schools and offers some alternative suggestions.
