3. Energy experts say efficiency gains critical to manufacturing
Nuclear, wind, solar, all renewable and all flawed as sustainable energy sources, said experts at a recent National Academy of Engineering education conference on Kiawah Island. The best renewable has been efficiency in energy production and distribution, they say, and it will continue to be for the foreseeable future. While there is general consensus with that view - that renewable energy sources can't displace oil, coal and gas from our nation's energy mix - not everyone agrees that simply refining the systems of extraction and dissemination are the best response to the growing demand for power and the increasing concern about its impact on the only planet we have. "We should build more nuclear plants, provided we do it right," said Mark McKinney, a professor of electrical engineering at The Citadel. "It's probably the only way to meet the growing demand for energy in the very long term, barring paradigm-shifting technology."

7. 2015 Sertoma Football Classic Schedule Announced
Organizers officially announced the schedule for the 45th Sertoma Classic Wednesday. "It is really to the school season and football season," Debbie McKelvy, the event's co-chair said. The two-day jamboree added eight-man teams for the first time to accommodate smaller private schools and powder puff games for girls. "We're excited that this is something new," McKelvy said. "It's girl power this year." This year the event was moved up a week to allow teams that play Week Zero games to participate in the Sertoma Classic, as well. "We are at week minus zero," McKelvy said. "We worked with The Citadel and they said we could, so we're doing it one week earlier and because of that, we have more teams than ever before."

8. Lehigh Valley IronPigs first baseman Chris McGuiness starting to get rewarded for good at-bats
McGuiness, signed this offseason by the Phillies and playing for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, has done what he said he's done for most Aprils — struggled. The 27-year-old South Carolina native is not a fan of cold weather, but his bat is warming up as April is coming to a close. Dating back to his days at The Citadel, McGuiness has maintained a disciplined eye at the plate. In his pro career (including this season), he has walked 356 times compared to just 460 strikeouts. "It's no secret that the less [at-bats] you have, do the math, 1 for 3 and 1 for 4 are like night and day in the grand scheme of things," he said. "So, I'll take a walk.

1. Citadel: Majority of hazing claims 'training violations,' not hazing
The Citadel has concluded its investigations of hazing allegations that were reported in February. The majority of cases investigated were training violations against freshman cadets (primarily unauthorized physical activity), not hazing. Capt. Geno Paluso, the commandant of cadets, initiated the investigation into allegations of misconduct and hazing after ordering freshmen to report possible hazing incidents they had experienced or witnessed. At a media availability held March 4, Paluso shared the initial findings from the probe which included 85 allegations. After a thorough review of each case, the investigation has concluded: 53 of the allegations were fourth-class (freshman) training violations and resulted in on-campus punishments. 19 cases were considered hazing and those cadets have been recommended for suspension, dismissal or expulsion and are in the appeals process. Nine cadets withdrew or resigned. Three cases were dismissed as they involved no violations of Citadel regulations. One case will be adjudicated next semester due to extenuating circumstances. "There simply is no place for hazing at The Citadel," said Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa. "It does not represent what we stand for, it is not consistent with our core values, and it does not prepare our cadets to be leaders of character."

2. Doggy Day at The Citadel relieves stress during exam week
There's only one day each semester that can turn even the toughest upperclassman into a babbling pile of mush. That's Doggy Day at The Citadel. Or "Puppy Day," as the cadets call it, somewhat aspirationally. And Tuesday, you could hear the howls across Summerall Field. Finals at The Citadel begin this week. To help students and cadets relieve pent-up anxiety, the prestigious military academy invited local animal adoption agencies and a few of their dogs to campus for a couple of hours. It's one of the more highly anticipated and popular events of the school year. By 11 a.m., at least 200 cadets risked getting hair on their uniforms and slobber on their shoes to flock to the lawn outside Daniel Library for a fresh Krispy Kreme donut and a chance to pet a pooch.

3. IOP could be first town in S.C. to ban plastic bags
Residents and visitors to Isle of Palms will be hauling their purchases in paper sacks or reusable bags in 2016, if all goes according to plan. Council unanimously agreed Tuesday to consider banning single-use plastic bags at its May meeting at the request of residents Rini Kosmos, Kathy Kent, Christy Humphries and Jackie Kilroe. The ordinance will require two readings and will have a six-month transition period to allow businesses to exhaust their current inventory, so council members discussed having it go into effect in January. A recent study by The Citadel estimated more than 7 tons of plastics sit by the water or under tidal water around Charleston Harbor at any given time. The study, "Plastic to Microplastic: Decomposition of Three Common Plastic Polymers in a Salt Marsh Habitat," found the load is breaking down within four to eight weeks to microplastics that are absorbed by aquatic food like shrimp, and can kill them.

5. A Tale of Two Cities? Ferguson, North Charleston, and the Future
In announcing the suit Anthony Gray, an attorney representing the Brown family, stated that he would present new evidence that would bolster his previous claim that Brown was not a threat to Officer Wilsons safety in the critical moments before the former Ferguson constable shot the young Mr. Brown last August 9th. After the announcement of the suit, Benjamin Crump, another attorney associated with the Brown family declared that the action was a necessary response to the recent incidents involving police and black suspects in Cleveland, New York, North Charleston, and now in Baltimore. Whether shaking down a municipality for monetary damages is an honorable method of consciousness raising stands as an open question, but the fact remains that white police officers using deadly force on black male suspects is now a very important national issue. At this point a brief recapitulation of the events concerning Ferguson is in order. The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney announced during the early evening that no charges would be filed against Officer Wilson and rioting, looting, and gunplay convulsed the city once again. The disorders continued throughout the Thanksgiving weekend and into December. Paige Lewis is an adjunct history professor and freelance writer in Charleston, S.C. She graduated Queens College in Charlotte, N.C. with a B.A. in history and drama, with a minor in political science.

3. College of Charleston President McConnell: Bond bill is 'overdue'
College of Charleston President Glenn McConnell is urging state lawmakers to pass a $236 million bond proposal that would fund "long overdue" construction projects at the college and other public universities and technical schools. The Senate Finance Committee voted 16-5 last week to advance the measure. McConnell, the former president pro tempore of the South Carolina Senate, and leaders from other public universities attended the committee meeting to express their support. Other Lowcountry universities that would benefit from the Senate bond bill include The Citadel, which would receive $7 million - the majority of which would be used to pay for construction of a new Capers Hall - and the Medical University of South Carolina, which would receive $20 million for its new women’s and children's hospital.

3. The Myth of Global Gluts and the Reality of Market Change

You may not have noticed it when out buying things in the marketplace in the context of your personal budget, but according to the Wall Street Journal (April 24, 2015) the world is awash with too much stuff. We seemingly have too much of, well, almost everything: too many raw material commodities, too much capital, and too much labor. The world, claims the Journal, is suffering from global gluts.If this were true, rather than anguishing over such a “horn-of-plenty” we should be shouting hosanna to the heavens. It would mean that we were in or at the threshold of a “post-scarcity” world, that is, more than enough of everything we would need to produce all of everything that we want. Hallelujah, economic utopia has come!

Citadel, College of Charleston wrestle with cost of attendance stipends

Now think about what cost of attendance means for smaller schools like College of Charleston (with revenue of $15.8 million in 2013) and The Citadel ($13.4 million, according to USA Today).  “It’s definitely going to be the basis for making hard decisions,” said Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino, whose league includes state schools The Citadel, Wofford and Furman. “I don’t see all of the schools in our conference, or any of them, being able to provide cost of attendance across the board for all sports. Decisions will have to be made.”

VMI 8, Citadel 7

VMI built an early 6-0 lead but needed single runs in the sixth and eighth to post an 8-7 win over The Citadel in the opener of a Southern Conference series on Friday at Riley Park. The teams play the middle game on Saturday at 11 a.m., a change from the original 2 p.m. first pitch due to the threat of afternoon rain in the area.  The Bulldogs (18-22, 3-10 SoCon) scored a run in the third and five in the fourth to wipe out their early deficit. Trailing 6-1 in the fourth, Johnathan Stokes drew a bases-loaded walk, a second run scored on a wild pitch and Connor Walsh pulled The Citadel within 6-5 on a two-run single up the middle.

1. SC supporters set 175-mile river trip for military veterans
Twenty-two South Carolina combat veterans are paddling 175 miles from Columbia to Charleston in a weeklong effort to bond and help veterans deal with issues related to combat and stress. "It's not meant to be an easy trip," said Chaplain Bobby Farmer, a Vietnam veteran and an event organizer. "It's meant to give veterans a challenge, and a chance to bond. It's something they need to do." The 64-year-old Presbyterian minister said he's found that military veterans who may have to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder get strength from the company of others.

North Florida Edges Bulldogs, Sweep Season Series
The Citadel scored twice in the ninth and had runners on the corners before North Florida closer Corbin Olmstead was finally able to wrap up a 9-8 victory for the Ospreys on Wednesday night at Riley Park. North Florida (32-13) completed a two-game season sweep but not before the Bulldogs scored twice in the ninth on an RBI single by Connor Walsh and an error. With runners at first and third and two outs, Olmstead secured his seventh save of the year with a strikeout of pinch hitter Austin Mapes. Trailing 7-3 in the seventh, the Bulldogs (18-21) began their rally against Matthew Naylor on a pair of walks sandwiched around a single by Ryan Kilgallen. Mike Deese made it a two-run game when he dropped a double just inside the line in shallow right to chase Naylor in favor of Alex Smith.

2a. The Citadel American Society of Civil Engineering student chapter wins first place in concrete canoe competition
Have you ever tried to make concrete float? If you ask a group of civil engineering students, they will probably answer with a resounding 'yes.' Making a slab of concrete float is exactly how The Citadel's American Society of Civil Engineering student chapter won first place in the concrete canoe event at The Carolinas Conference over the weekend of April 9th-11th. The student team placed first in the concrete canoe competition, upsetting a Clemson team that has dominated the event for over a decade. The competition asks student teams to create a canoe, made of concrete, which not only has to float while carrying passengers, but that can also be sunk underwater to resurface on its own.

For a South Carolina team with a fairly thin rotation, even more so now with Wil Crowe lost, that's problematic to begin with. Then you add in the fact that many of these smaller schools expect to be able to compete with, or even beat USC, and no wonder the Gamecocks seem to be in a dogfight every Tuesday night. Last season they lost to Charleston Southern and The Citadel, but their performance in league play was good enough for the NCAA selection committee to look past those defeats.

In spite of the great advances in reducing poverty and increasing the freedom and dignity of hundreds of millions of people around the world, the political and cultural climate virtually everywhere around the world is one of anti-business and anti-capitalism. Yet, it is wherever the forces of free market capitalism have been set freest, along with a modicum of acceptance and even respect for business enterprise, that the most dramatic strides have been made in abolishing the worst and most squalid material conditions of mankind.

1. Fishable? Swimmable? Charleston waters in trouble
The water quality in the Charleston Harbor estuaries has been deteriorating for years, while the monitoring has fallen off and efforts to maintain it for fishing or swimming aren't stopping the degradation. Sewer system discharge, rain runoff and litter are increasing as population growth and development turn a coastal town into a city. Recent research is damning, finding pollutants such as flame retardants, stain repellents and plastics in the tissue of marine animals. The study, "Plastic to Microplastic: Decomposition of Three Common Plastic Polymers in a Salt Marsh Habitat," found the load is breaking down within four to eight weeks to microplastics that are absorbed by aquatic food like shrimp, and can kill them, the study found. "The eight-week finding suggests to me that these microscopic plastic fragments could potentially be harming the overall health of our ecosystems," said Cadet Brittany Crocker, who conducted The Citadel study with physiology professor John Weinstein.

2. Experts say IAM will likely look to ramp support from Boeing workers
The International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers withdrew its petition for a union election at Boeing's North Charleston plant Friday. The election has been postponed for at least six months. The Union is filing Unfair Labor Practice charges against Boeing, and claims two of its organizers were threatened at gunpoint by Boeing workers. That information comes from a release on the Union website. It says that while out on home visits to Boeing workers two were threatened at gunpoint and others said they had quote, "hostile and near-violent confrontations." IAM recently suspended those visits. While another election can be scheduled for some time after October, some business analysts believe the Machinists Union will start to try and ramp up even more support in the very near future. "The intensity with the way the union is attempting to do this shows their desperation," Richard Ebeling, Ph.D., a business professor at The Citadel, said.

3a. A war's lasting legacy, 150 years later
April 1865 was not Charleston's finest moment. By the time word reached the city that the Civil War had ended, the fighting had been over here for nearly two months. For four years, Charleston had suffered through the horrors of the War Between the States - a conflict that started at Fort Sumter. Since that first shot, the city had suffered more than 500 days of siege and shelling. A fire had destroyed much of downtown, and some of the rest had been burned by retreating Confederates. At 3 p.m., the Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust will host a memorial service for the Civil War dead at Hampton Park. The Citadel Chaplain Joel Harris will officiate, with remarks from Blight.

4d. Judo teachers earn national honor
The United States Judo Association inducted Summerville residents Dr. Lisa Capriotti and Robert Gouthro into the National Judo Hall of Fame as the Outstanding Judo Kata Competitors for 2014. They were selected based on successes in regional and national tournaments. Last year, they were chosen as one of five pairs to represent the United States at the World Judo Kata Championships in Malaga, Spain, where they finished highest among the American teams, placing eighth in their group and 14th overall. Kata forms are pre-arranged patterns of judo techniques practiced with a partner. Their purposes include illustrating basic principles of judo, demonstrating correct execution of techniques, teaching philosophical tenets upon which judo is based, and preserving ancient techniques historically important but no longer used in contemporary judo. A local ceremony took place at the Samurai Judo Association club located at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek. In July, the pair will officially be recognized at the National Judo Championships in Indianapolis. Capriotti and Gouthro are full-time educators in the Summerville and Charleston area. Dr. Capriotti teaches at The Citadel while Gouthro teaches seventh grade at Oakbrook Middle School. They are experts in four martial arts, having earned first degree black belts in both judo and jujitsu, third degree black belts in karate and second degree black belts in iaido, the art of the samurai sword. They continue to hone their skills teaching karate and judo at the American Judo and Jujitsu Academy in Summerville and judo, jujitsu, and karate at the Samurai Judo Association at the Naval Weapons Station.

"I was actually committed to go to The Citadel, a military school (in South Carolina), and I decided I wanted to go play college golf," Morley said Friday after signing his letter of intent to attend Hawaii-Hilo.

A group of local veterans are about to embark on a journey to test their outdoor savviness, navigation skills, and arm strength. Tomorrow, 22 combat veterans will set out from the capital city on an 8-day river journey through South Carolina. The trip will take them from Riverfront Park 175 miles downstream to The Citadel in Charleston. Organizers of the trip say the number of veterans is significant because an average of 22 American veterans die each day from suicide due to post traumatic stress disorder. The hope is that those embarking on the adventure will have the change to connect with others facing similar challenges in their lives.

Small mistakes had cost Killian's two-man team valuable points, leaving them in second place behind a team of soldiers from Fort Benning.

As a whole, this season hasn't turned out the way the Reynolds baseball team planned. But the past week partially made up for it, and there are lots of innings left to be played. The Rockets (7-6, 3-4) were giant-killers, knocking off two first-place teams in Western North Carolina conferences - Roberson (Mountain Athletic 4-A) and Smoky Mountain (WNC Athletic 2-A/3-A). "Don't count us out yet," said senior infielder/outfielder/pitcher Jared Green. "We needed a break from everything, a break from baseball and we got it over spring break. Now we're playing the way I knew we could." Green said he has committed to Mars Hill. Watt will play his college baseball for Spartanburg Methodist (S.C.), and a third senior, Branson Holmes, is expected to pitch at the next level for The Citadel.

7. South Carolina reflects on Walter Scott killing: 'The flag of white supremacy still flies on our statehouse'
Scott's death at the hands of a police officer last weekend is the latest in a high-profile string of killings of unarmed black men in the United States which have galvanised a protest movement and reminded many in the country that state violence against African-Americans is not a thing of the past. Kerry Taylor, a history lecturer at the Citadel, Charleston's prestigious military college, is sympathetic to Randolph's view of the historic forces at play in the state. But he argues that local dynamics and gentrification play their role in explaining at least some of the disparities and discrimination in Charleston County. "We really are moving in the direction of two Charlestons," said Taylor. "There's one Charleston, where the population of middle class and upper middle class is swelling, taking advantage of new jobs. What that's done though is create pressure on the black community and the working class in Charleston, pushing them to the periphery."

It wasn't much, just a chip shot that barely cleared the infield dirt. But it fell in the no-man's land between second base and right field, and was enough to help South Carolina sweep the season series from The Citadel. Jordan Gore's bases-loaded single in the third inning dropped between two outstretched arms in short right, driving in three runs and propelling USC to a 4-2 victory over the Bulldogs Wednesday night at Carolina Stadium. It was the third straight win for the Gamecocks, their longest streak since winning 10 in a row in March. "We were lucky to have won that game," said USC head coach Chad Holbrook.

3. Citadel pitcher Zach Sherrill hits home run with on-field proposal
The Citadel baseball team lost, 17-0, to Mercer on Saturday at Riley Park. But at least one Bulldogs player had something to celebrate that night. Senior pitcher Zach Sherrill did not strike out when he proposed to his girlfriend, Anna Kate Shuler, on the field before the game. "I've always thought about doing that when I proposed, because I'm so into baseball," said Sherrill, who has known Anna Kate since they went to high school together in Sumter. "I thought that’d be a neat way to do it."

Reeves threw the first no-hitter by a Bulldog in 13 years while recording 14 strikeouts for the second time this season, one shy of his career best set against Davidson in 2014. The redshirt junior allowed only three Bears to reach scoring position, with one of those coming on a two-base error, and no more than one runner in any inning.

It’s been more than 20 years since The Citadel last built a new academic building, but the military college’s landscape is poised to change with an ambitious plan to construct two new buildings over the next several years.  The college is planning to replace Capers Hall, which is just off Moultrie Street on the downtown Charleston campus, with a new, modern building. And the military college’s School of Business is getting its own dedicated facility instead of sharing space with other departments inside Bond Hall.

3. Consumers' Sovereignty and Natural vs. Contrived Scarcities

In the free market, the guiding principle is voluntary exchange. Consumers make their free choices concerning goods and services to buy, and producers, to earn the income that enables them to be consumers in turn, must serve the ends and interests of their fellow market participants. Hence, as consumer we are the "masters" of the market process, and as producer we are the "servants" of others. Consumers are the "sovereign" commanders of the market and its outcomes.

4. When the Supreme Court Stopped Economic Fascism in America

There was a time when the Supreme Court of the United States defended and upheld the Constitutional protections for economic liberty in America. This year marks the 80th anniversary of one of the Supreme Court’s finest hours, when it overturned Franklin Roosevelt’s agenda for economic fascism in the U.S. The trend toward bigger and ever-more-intrusive government, unfortunately, was not stopped, but the case nonetheless was a significant event that at that time prevented the institutionalizing of a Mussolini-type fascist economic system in America.

2. Marking the Civil War's end in Charleston
America's Civil War ended when Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse in Virginia on April 9, 1865, but President Abraham Lincoln had planned for it to end symbolically a few days later. As the 150th anniversary of this historic event approaches, the Lowcountry is planning to mark the occasion much like it marked the same anniversary of the war's start - with a series of lectures, concerns and somber events designed to raise awareness of a pivotal point in the nation's history and to remember its vast impact on so many lives. The highlight will be a series of free lectures by some of the nation's leading historians. Bo Moore, dean of The Citadel's School of Humanities, said the morning lectures will focus on the war's legacy, while the afternoon sessions will explore the war as Americans have chosen to commemorate it. "There's no serious disagreement that the Civil War, the issues that produced it and the way in which they were addressed during and after the war, go to the heart of the American experience, what we were, what we are, what we hope to be," he said.

James Reeves has had the conversation with himself on the mound almost every game. "It is kind of a joke in my head," Reeves said. "I'll give up a hit in the second or third inning and say, 'Oh, there goes my no-hitter.' " On Thursday night, those words were never said. The former Ashley Ridge High School two-sport star tossed the first Citadel no-hitter in 13 years and tied his season high with 14 strikeouts as the Bulldogs blanked Mercer, 4-0, in the opening game of a Southern Conference baseball series Thursday night at Riley Park.

As his recruiting was coming to a close, Connor Schroeder could see that he would be going to college at a military school and playing for Duggar Baucom. That's still going to be the case, just not at the same military school. Schroeder, a 6-foot-7 forward from Blacksburg by way of the Miller School outside of Charlottesville, plans to sign with The Citadel, where Baucom was introduced as head coach Monday after 10 seasons at VMI. "I wasn't surprised at all," Schroeder said. "I had heard a lot of rumors that he was going. I had been offered by VMI and was planning on committing there, but (Baucom) had told me beforehand that he was thinking about going down there and, if he did, he was taking me with him."

Letter: Citadel athletes are different
I read the March 11 Gene Sapakoff piece, "Citadel hoops hire must be different," and felt that Gene overlooked the elephant in the room, which is attracting and keeping talent. Recruiting at The Citadel has to be a challenging task. The Citadel is different in that athletics are, at best, fifth on the list of priorities behind duty, honor, respect and academics. As a community we can help The Citadel receive and maintain the recognition it deserves as an institution of higher education and a place where the ethics and leadership of its students have stood apart for 173 years. Tour the campus, attend a game, watch a parade. Feel the pride.

1. Santorum - More Credibility, Less Vest in 2016?
Rick Santorum is considering a comeback presidential bid in 2016. But his vintage sweater vest is mulling retirement. The former Pennsylvania senator says his teenage daughters are now the arbiters of his fashion choices and "are particular about how their dad decides to leave the house." But so, too, are his political advisers who, while they might agree that sweater vest isn't exactly the new black, are more interested in getting the likely candidate to appear less hokey and more presidential-like a candidate who won 11 primary states last time around. Santorum says that while he is still mulling whether to get in, the idea that foreign policy will play a significant role in this election is compelling for him. The former senator will play up his role on the Armed Services Committee and his post-Congress work as a director of a conservative think tank. Santorum's two sons now attend The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., and, wearing their uniforms, have garnered applause from attendees at some of their father's events.

Even when South Carolina was winning national championships, the Gamecocks struggled to win in Charleston. Three Gamecock pitchers combined for a two-hit shutout and Elliott Caldwell collected two hits and drove in a run to lead South Carolina past The Citadel, 2-0, Tuesday night before a crowd of 5,972 at Riley Park. In the past four years, the Gamecocks are just 2-2 at Riley Park. In 2011, the year South Carolina won its second College World Series title, the Bulldogs shut out the Gamecocks, 2-0. It was the only time the Gamecocks were shut out that entire season. A year ago, the Bulldogs won a wild 10-8 affair that went into extra innings.

New Citadel basketball coach Duggar Baucom wasted little time in recruiting his first player for the Bulldogs. Baucom, named as The Citadel's coach Monday, got a commitment Tuesday from 6-7 wing player Connor Schroeder of Miller School in Charlottesville, Va. Schroeder averaged a team-best 14.2 points and shot 35 percent from 3-point range last season. "He's a great kid and an outstanding shooter," said Miller School coach Ralf Melis. "He was definitely our leader on the court this year, and not just statistically. On offense and defense, he helped us tremendously putting people in the right place. I'm really pleased with how he's progressed in the last two years."
