Basketball has taken Barry Smith Jr. to many different places. Now, it has finally brought him back home. Smith, a 2009 Penn Hills graduate, is using his final season of eligibility at Point Park University, where he has excelled in the short amount of time he has been there. After graduating from Penn Hills in 2009 with career averages of 15 points and seven rebounds per game, the three-year starter's ACT score was not high enough to pass the NCAA Clearinghouse standards, so he enrolled at The Kiski School in Saltsburg for the next season and averaged 21 points and 12 rebounds per game.

Several new graduate-level degree programs are planned for Charleston-area workers looking to advance their careers.

Jim Lechner, "but because I get to honor veterans who I served with."

David Shields rescues things from obscurity and shares them with people who didn’t know how much they would appreciate them. The University of South Carolina professor has drawn the most attention for his effort to bring back lost Southern foods such as the Bradford watermelon and the Carolina African runner peanut, but he also has compiled amazing collections of Russian piano music and still photographs of silent movie actors. Heirloom foods were a salvation for Shields. He was at a mid-career signpost, waiting for direction a little more than a decade ago. A tenured professor at The Citadel, he could have been comfortable writing or contributing to more books on literature.

4. The 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima: Remembering The Citadel's World War II Marines
The Citadel has had a long and distinguished line of Citadel Marines dating back to before the first World War. On the eve of the United States' entry into World War I, every member of the Class of 1917 entered military service. Thirteen of them were commissioned in the Marine Corps, a fact that was the subject of an investigation by a Congressional committee. That legacy continues strong to this day. Seventy years ago, on Feb. 19, 1945, Operation Detachment, better known as the Battle of Iwo Jima, began. It would become one of the costliest battles waged by the United States during World War II in the Pacific Theater. Even before the landings, doubts about the necessity of the operation surfaced. Those doubts were overshadowed by rivalries and intra-service agendas between the Army, Navy, and Army Air Forces. The Marine Corps, which would pay the heaviest price for the landings, was cut out of the decision-making altogether.

7. Lowcountry police officer gives back to Special Olympics
During the month of February, law enforcement will kick off a new awareness campaign for South Carolina Special Olympics. They will host five polar plunges across the state, including one here in the Lowcountry next weekend. Deputy Chief Stan Gragg of the Mount Pleasant Police Department is more than just a cop. His passion to make a difference in the community shows. "Several years ago, a friend of mine asked if I would do the mid-winter run, which we used to do the mid-winter games here at The Citadel. And it was about a four mile run from Colonial Lake into the start of the mid-winter games. And when I ran in, I was immediately hooked," Gragg remembers of his first torch run. That's how he got started with South Carolina Special Olympics.

1. Ways and Means discussion of SC State put off until Wednesday
A cold day in Columbia did not deter hundreds of people from rallying at the Statehouse steps Monday against a House subcommittee's proposal to shutter the historically black university in Orangeburg. Rev. Joe Darby, the vice president of the Charleston chapter of the NAACP, says South Carolina State University is severely underfunded and routinely has been financially undercut compared to other public colleges and universities. SC State is the only public historically black university in the state. Darby went on to say that the university is seen as a political playing field for South Carolina's powerful. For the 2013-14 fiscal year, SC State was the third-highest funded comprehensive teaching university in the state, behind CofC and Winthrop. Comparing schools on enrollment numbers, SC State is most similar to Francis Marion and The Citadel, who both received less than SC State. In fact, The Citadel only received $9 million from the state that year. It's been a trend since the recession in 2008.

As The Citadel begins spring football practice Tuesday, one question will dominate the proceedings for the next five weeks: Who will start at quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2015? With the departure of veteran Aaron Miller after a 5-7 season in 2014, Citadel coach Mike Houston is hoping to have a firm grasp on the pecking order at QB by the end of the spring game on March 14. Rising sophomore Dominique Allen might have an early edge after serving as Miller's backup last season, but will have to fight off redshirt freshmen Shon Butler and Jalen Lampkin and rising junior Dane Anderson to secure the starting job.

1a. Citadel dean spurs stunning computer breakthrough
If computers run a 100 times faster in the next few years - and they might - a slice of the credit goes to Lok C. Lew Yan Voon, "the father of silicone". How big a slice? One atom thick. A University of Texas computer engineer just figured out a way to produce silicene circuit chip transistors. If that can be done commercially, the breakthrough could mean advancements such as: More extensive DNA sequencing,more hydrogen storage for fuel-cell cars, more sensitive chemical sensors that detect potentially lethal stuff like carbon monoxide. And a lot more, as well as making computers lightning-fast. It would be "not incrementally better. It's qualitatively better. It's radically different," said Lok, The Citadel's dean of the School of Science and Mathematics. He knows because he wrote the theoretical equation that proved it could be done.

1g. The Spectacular Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The opening sights and sounds of the Edinburgh Tattoo are spectacular, set against the backdrop of ancient Edinburgh Castle. In the distance, behind the castle walls, I hear the sinister rattle of dozens of snare drums followed by the wail of a single bagpipe. Then, suddenly, 600 pipers fire up their instruments in a loud cacophony of noise that echos across the esplanade. The excited crowd goes silent. Moments later, the pipers and drummers emerge from the billowing clouds of smoke that shroud the castle entrance. They’re playing "Scotland the Brave" and there's not a dry eye in the packed, sloping metal stands. Wearing magnificent regimental uniforms and regalia, these military bands hail from across the globe: British military bands, the New Zealand Army Band, the Royal Jordanian Army Band, the Border Guard of the Republic of Poland, The Citadel Band from Charleston, South Carolina, the Ghurkas, the Army Physical Training Corps Band, and Police Bands, to name a few. Forty-seven countries, from every continent, have been represented at the Edinburgh Tattoo.

4. What the Citadel Can Teach Us about Computer Security
The Citadel, founded in 1842, is one of America's oldest and most respected private military colleges. Its reputation was built not only on the discipline, academic merit and career achievements of its graduates, but particularly on the high standards of integrity instilled by its Honor Code. This states that a cadet "will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do" and will do "the right thing when no one is watching."

In his first year as IU's head coach, Lemonis is trying to win now
It was a trip Chris Lemonis had made plenty of times 
before. He was going to watch the Indiana Bulls play in Nashville, Tenn., to scout a few kids he was recruiting. He was dressed in his school's apparel, like always. A subtle reminder to the players where he was coming from. Except this time his clothes were different. They were still red, but the logo had changed. Instead of an L representing the University of Louisville, he was wearing a pitchfork, representing his new school, IU. Dan McDonnell was also there, trying to recruit many of the same players. McDonnell is the coach at Louisville, where less than 24 hours ago Lemonis was his top assistant. Now the two best friends were competing. The relationship between Lemonis and McDonnell stretches back to 1988, when the two 18 year-olds were beginning their playing careers at The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, S.C.

2. Questions about College of Charleston notification system linger a day after bomb threat
A day after a bomb threat shook up the College of Charleston, students and parents continue to wonder what went wrong with the school's emergency notification system. After police left the campus and students were allowed back into evacuated buildings late Tuesday afternoon, President Glenn McConnell acknowledged that the Cougar Alert system didn't work right and vowed to correct it. The College of Charleston relies on the Connect-ED communication software from Blackboard Connect for its Cougar Alerts. The Citadel uses the same system for its Bulldog Alerts, according to Col. William Fletcher, chief of The Citadel's Police Department. When issuing an alert, users can either type a specific message or choose a pre-programmed alert.

Major Tom McGrath, the Senior Marine Instructor, was also optimistic that the cadets will continue to improve. "Because this skill of being able to protect sensitive data via a computer network is so critical in today's world, more cadets are becoming interested in this extra-curricular activity. This summer, I will be taking five of our cadets to The Citadel (The Military College of South Carolina) in Charleston to attend a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) camp. That camp will provide them with the basic skills needed for CyberPatriot and perhaps lead to a very well-paying job." This camp is fully funded by the U.S. Marine Corps, without any cost to Michigan City Area Schools or the students.

1. Two-Dimensional Silicon Makes Its Device Debut
Researchers report that they've fabricated transistors made of a single layer of silicon atoms connected to three electrodes. These are the first functional devices to use two-dimensional silicon. Much like its all-carbon cousin, graphene, silicene promises an exciting array of electronic properties, according to theorists. Scientists believe both 2-D materials could form the basis of smaller, faster transistors-and, in turn, smaller, faster computers-but some argue silicene has the greater potential because the semiconductor industry already relies heavily on silicon.

1. Graphene's cousin silicene makes transistor debut
Seven years ago, silicene was little more than a theorist's dream. Buoyed by a frenzy of interest in graphene - the famous material composed of a honeycomb of carbon just one atom thick - researchers speculated that silicon atoms might form similar sheets. And if they could be used to build electronic devices, these slivers of silicene could enable the semiconductor industry to achieve the ultimate in miniaturization. "For logic applications, graphene is hopeless," says Le Lay. By contrast, silicene can boast a band gap, because some of its atoms buckle upwards to form corrugated ridges, which puts some of its electrons in slightly different energy states. What is more, makers of electronic chips have been wary of ditching decades of silicon-manufacturing experience in favour of carbon, says Lok Lew Yan Voon, a theoretical physicist at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina in Charleston, who first named silicene and modelled its properties back in 2007.

2. Atom-Thick Silicon Makes Crazy-Fast Transistors
An exotic but tricky-to-use new form of silicon is being eyed as a way to build much faster computer chips. And now, those who see its potential can claim a minor victory by making the first transistors out of the stuff. The material in question, called silicene, comes in layers of silicon just one-atom thick. This structure gives the material fantastic electrical properties, but it also means it's devilishly tricky to produce and work with. Even testing its basic properties in the lab has proved difficult. In 2007, Lok Lew Yan Voon, a physicist at The Citadel Military College of South Carolina, who published some of the first theoretical work on silicene, calculated that the material's electrical properties should be similar to those of graphene. In theory, electrons can cruise through both graphene and silicene without encountering as many obstacles, enabling very speedy circuits.

5. Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler did it first at Medal of Honor Bowl
Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler was still trending on Twitter on Monday, a day after his game-saving interception in the New England Patriots' 28-24 win over Seattle on Sunday night. Butler also was hard to miss a year ago at the inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl in Charleston, a game that played no small part in Butler's amazing rise from a Popeye's chicken restaurant employee to NFL player and Super Bowl star. "I remember seeing him every day at practice," says Austin Atkinson, the deputy director of player personnel for the Medal of Honor Bowl. "Every time he made a play - and he made a lot of them - he'd pound on his chest and yell, 'Mr. D2! Mr. D2!"

6. Citadel football looks to restock defense, add speed in recruiting
Hired on Jan. 9, 2014, Citadel football coach Mike Houston had less than a month to put together his first recruiting class. He managed to hang on to most of the players who had committed to former coach Kevin Higgins and add a few more to a 17-player class. "It was a whirlwind," Houston said. Houston's second recruiting class, which will be announced on National Signing Day on Wednesday, is the product of a much more methodical process, the coach said. It was a process that focused mainly on restocking the Bulldogs' defense and adding to their team speed.

6. Richard Hyatt: Recruiting keeps the ball rolling
National Signing Day is not a national holiday, but it should be. And it's a day that Dale Williams has experienced at just about every level. He was introduced to the process when he was a skinny defensive back at Hardaway High School in 1977. He was back on the market after one season at The Citadel, when he convinced the University of Georgia that he was good enough to play in the SEC. As a player, he was the host to young recruits who visited Athens and today he sees recruiting through the lens of a camera as the co-host of a weekly TV show. But as the proud father of a high school football player, those experiences meant nothing. "You learn you can't fix anything," he said. Thirty-seven years ago, he was young and naïve. After Christmas during his senior year, he heard from Frank Beamer, who coached defensive backs at The Citadel.
