Some of these people calling Henry Darby a racist need to look in the mirror

When Henry Darby raised questions about a Confederate flag on The Citadel campus a few weeks ago, the military college showed its class by responding with the appropriate concern and respect.  Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for some of the school's alumni.  Even though the issue of the Naval Jack in Summerall Chapel is over and done with, and even though the Charleston County councilman agreed to move on after a state attorney general's opinion said that the flag is legally protected, Darby is still getting hate mail.

Well, all of that changed when DeSean Jackson joined the ranks. Roberts now seems to be the 5th wheel in Jay Gruden's offense. Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson will command the majority of the targets out wide, and Jordan Reed could have a monster season. Throw in the need to feed the beast that is Alfred Morris and you see Andre Roberts may not get the ball as much as he deserves.

We appreciate the Attorney General's attention in reviewing the case of the Confederate Naval Jack in Summerall Chapel. The confirmation that The Citadel is following state law by treating the flag as a memorial that falls under the Heritage Act resolves this issue for the college. As the flag in the chapel is on public property and we are a state institution, we have a duty to follow the law.

We understand and respect the fact that any flag brings up strong emotions. We hope that the Attorney General's decision that the flag's location is set by the Heritage Act will bring closure for those who have raised this issue.

Although I have been (and am) greatly offended that the statue has been allowed on public property I haven't tried to get it removed, although I cannot understand how anyone can possibly worship a man who plotted murder.

North Myrtle Beach hires Hardin as new football coach

The Chiefs’ new coach graduated from The Citadel in 2004 and said he was able to discuss the opening with Woolbright. The two knew each other from their days in the Southern Conference while Woolbright was a walk-on at Appalachian State. Hardin received an endorsement from a number of area coaches with ties to either The Citadel, N.C. prep football or other avenues. Last December, he was also believed to be the youngest assistant coach in Shrine Bowl history when he served on the N.C. staff.

Our U.S. Senate Endorsement

We’ve arrived at the endorsement everyone expected us to make … just not via the expected avenue. When Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace ('99) announced her intention to run for the U.S. Senate last year, many expected this website to engage in the relentless promotion of her candidacy. After all she was a partner in this little new media venture of ours, and her marketing expertise was an integral component of FITSNews’ early success.

Capital Pride: the protest that has evolved into more of a party

Bill Morgan, 76, was kicked out of the Citadel, the military college in South Carolina, because he was gay. He lied so he could serve in the Air Force, in the closet, wary and silent, as gay friends were drummed out. So when the eight-man U.S. military color guard marched for the first time at the head of Capital Pride, the District’s gay pride parade, Morgan was, for a moment, speechless.

Does a Confederate Flag Belong in a House of Worship?

The Citadel could lose nearly $1 million in Charleston County funding if it does not agree to remove a Confederate flag from Summerall Chapel, Councilman Henry Darby said Monday.Darby said he will make that proposal to County Council at its meeting Tuesday night."I really feel saddened by this. It's just still as if they are trying to preserve the Confederacy," he said.The Democrat finds the situation particularly troubling because the flag is located in a house of worship.

President Thomas Elzey should be commended for bringing to his cabinet an outstanding chief financial officer for South Carolina State University. (James Openshaw ('73), formerly at The Citadel).

With a sound financial footing, this university is poised for a brighter future. The state of South Carolina should be proud of this appointment and we should bail this institution out of its financial crisis.

We now know that the institution is in good hands and with oversight from the Legislature, S.C. State will be an even greater economic development engine to the state.

Stop the Civil War fight-songs fight

Flags aren't the only Confederate symbols some folks find offensive.  And that ain't just whistlin' "Dixie."  Musicians at The Citadel ain't - er, aren't - playing "Dixie" nearly as often they did in my ardent Bulldog-fan youth, either.  But officials at the Military College of South Carolina are now reasonably rejecting Charleston County Councilman Henry Darby's call that they remove a Confederate Naval Jack on display with 56 other flags in Summerall Chapel (see Darby's guest column on Page A19).

Why the Confederate flag doesn't belong in Citadel chapel (commentary)

The responses to my stance on flying the Confederate flag have been vile, vitriolic and venomous. Of the hundreds or so received, I replied to about 30 to explain my position and, more importantly, to seek the understanding and friendship of the authors. But to reply to all in a reasonable time is beyond my ability. Since I want all citizens of Charleston County and beyond to understand my position, I am writing an open letter.

    When a flag should not be a declaration of war

    You have to figure there have been more fights over the Confederate battle flag than there ever were under it.  After all, the Civil War lasted only four years. Controversies over the flag have been around for decads.  Sometimes these flare-ups merit the consternation and make valid points; other times they don't. Charleston County Council's recent attack on The Citadel is definitely an example of the latter.

    Councilman wants Citadel to remove Confederate flag from Summerall Chapel

    A Confederate Naval Jack hanging at The Citadel could cause the military college to lose nearly $1 million in Charleston County funding.Councilman Henry Darby was approached seven months ago by two constituents who were concerned about a Confederate flag at The Citadel’s Summerall Chapel. The flag was presented to former Citadel President Gen. Charles P. Summerall by the Cadet Yacht Club in 1939 as a “tribute to the courage and valor shown by American manhood in fighting for a cause,” according to the college.

    Flag in Summerall Chapel a memorial accepted by Gen. Summerall

    A Confederate Naval Jack that hangs in the rear of Summerall Chapel is a memorial that falls under the state's Heritage Act according to a legal review conducted by The Citadel. The issue was mentioned by a Charleston County Council member who contacted The Citadel regarding the flag, asking that it be removed or that the school lose his support for $975,000 in Accommodations Tax funding due to be voted on June 3.

    Flag must remain in Summerall Chapel (editorial BoV Chairman, Lt. Gen. W. Michael Steele U.S. Army (Ret.)

    Honor, duty, and respect. Those are the core values that guide decisions made each day at The Citadel. But it is not the easy decisions that call on us to apply these values; it is the difficult ones. Such is the case with the subject of a Confederate Naval Jack in Summerall Chapel on campus. In the spirit of respect for both sides of an issue with deep-rooted convictions, and under our duty to obey the law, The Citadel has determined that the flag, which was presented in 1939, is subject to the state's Heritage Act and must remain. That conclusion is based on guidance from our legal counsel.
