5. A Knob’s perspective of the SC Corps of Cadets Dress Parade

The Carolina sun’s rays shine through my window as I curse myself while frantically pacing my room. The smell of Lincoln stain wax and Blue Magic polish linger in the air as I look at the clock which reads 14:46. What started as an innocent visit to YouTube to watch funny videos at 13:00 and a “quick” perusal of Facebook ended with the clock at 14:30 the second time I checked. I swore last week this wouldn’t happen again but here I pant frantically worrying about the colorful and inspirational words my Squad Sergeant will say to me if I come down at 15:20 looking less than stellar.

    9.1 Citadel cadets to help repair Charleston church

    It’s no way to celebrate Christmas - two statues of Jesus left headless in the churchyard. The vandalism that left the two statues decapitated and defaced is disturbing enough that parents of the children in the after-school playground next door asked the Rev. Dennis Willey to cover the figure closest to the children.

    Putting on a birthday party for Jesus is no easy feat - in fact, it just about takes a village, according to the annual giving event's organizers. "It's a good event, but it's a lot of work and you have to be consistent," said Edward Jones. Jones was in charge this year of all kids' activities and events at the fourth annual Christmas at The Citadel, where volunteers served food and handed out gifts Thursday at Johnson Hagood Stadium.

    .Doing the math can add up to a lot of smiles

    Doing the math made the whole thing a little unnerving. It was 19 classrooms at a total of four schools and 20 children per class which meant 380 presents. The group of cadets from The Citadel Student Alumni Association, called Water Tower, needed to raise enough money to buy 380 nice presents for students in the 19 classrooms they adopted for Christmas at elementary and middle schools.

    If a ref had seen Charleston County Council turn down the Medal of Honor Bowl's request for $25,000 last week, he might have called unnecessary roughness.  But the play stands. Last week Charleston's own bowl game - a charity to raise money for the Medal of Honor Museum - asked council for money to help get the game broadcast on NBC. Seems our bowl isn't big enough to sell its TV rights. We have to pay them.
