1. Delusionary Thinking in Washington
Strategically, in the Cold War years, Washington's power brokers assumed that there would always be two superpowers perpetually battling for world dominance. In the wake of the utterly unexpected Soviet collapse, American strategists began to envision a world of just one, of a "sole superpower" (aka Rome on the Potomac). In line with this new outlook, the administration of George H.W. Bush soon adopted a long-range plan intended to preserve that status indefinitely. Known as the Defense Planning Guidance for Fiscal Years 1994-99, it declared: "Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union." H.W.'s son, then the governor of Texas, articulated a similar vision of a globally encompassing Pax Americana when campaigning for president in 1999. If elected, he told military cadets at The Citadel in Charleston, his top goal would be "to take advantage of a tremendous opportunity - given few nations in history - to extend the current peace into the far realm of the future. A chance to project America's peaceful influence not just across the world, but across the years."

2. Col. Colin P. Tuley takes command of 82nd Airborne's 1st Brigade Combat Team
With multiple combat deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq behind him, Col. Colin P. Tuley will now aim to prepare the soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division for anything. Tuley took command of the brigade Thursday at Pike Field, accepting control from Col. Trevor J. Bredenkamp, who had led the brigade for 30 months. And he pledged that, if needed, the 1st Brigade would be ready to answer the nation's call. Tuley was most recently a student in the U.S. Army War College's Fellowship Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A graduate of The Citadel in South Carolina, he has served with the 75 Ranger Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division and 25th Infantry Division, but had never served on Fort Bragg.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest and most selective honor society for all academic disciplines.

5c. Driesell leaves the Citadel for San Jose State
After spending the past five seasons as head coach of the men's basketball program at The Citadel, Springbrook High graduate Chuck Driesell will get a new beginning at San Jose State. Driesell, a former Springbrook basketball standout, parted ways with The Citadel in March after the school opted not to renew his contract. The former Silver Spring resident will join Spartans' head coach Dave Wojcik's staff as an assistant for the upcoming season. "Chuck brings an unrivaled level of coaching experience to our program," said Wojcik. "He has been very successful as both an assistant and head coach at every level. Chuck is a relentless recruiter, possesses a tremendous basketball IQ, and has a great presence on the court. Our players and coaches all look forward to learning from Coach Driesell on a daily basis."

5d. Swauger newest manager for JC Cards
Last year at this time, Chris Swauger was still on the field, but the writing was already on the wall. In his seventh season as a minor-league player, Swauger was batting .200 for the Springfield Cardinals, a Double-A affiliate in the St. Louis organization, when he found himself at a crossroads. "If you're an intelligent, informed player, you can kind of see what's going on in the organization, how things stack up," Swauger said. "I tried to at least be self-aware. There were some guys ahead of me and some guys behind me that can do things that I just can't do." But the levity Swauger brings to the game is balanced by the discipline he picked up during his four years at The Citadel. He credits his four years in military school for helping him gain structure and develop into a strong leader.

5e. SwampDogs win 1st game of season over Forest City
To Fayetteville SwampDogs first baseman Austin Upshaw, the Dogs' two-game losing streak to start the season seemed like an eternity. "We've been looking for this first win for awhile," Upshaw said. "We plan to have a successful season, and it starts with one." The SwampDogs (1-2) found that win in a 3-2 victory over Forest City (0-2) at J.P. Riddle Stadium on Thursday. The Dogs squandered an early lead before taking control on a pair of hits and a costly Owls' error in the eighth inning. The game started as a pitching duel between Dogs' righty Ryan Stamler and Owls' southpaw Bruce Zimmerman, who battled through five scoreless innings. Stamler, who was redshirted at the Citadel last season, struck out six, walked two and gave up a pair of hits in 5 2/3 innings before yielding to Nolan Mullen in the top of the sixth.

5f. Carmel edges Avon for boys track regional title
This was just one of eight boys track and field regionals around Indiana, but it was nationally and even internationally relevant. Carmel advanced eight individual qualifiers and all three relays to the June 5 state meet at Bloomington. The Greyhounds started with a regional record in the 3,200-meter relay and subsequently won the 400 relay. Elsewhere, Plainfield's Andrew Snoke won a 100/200 double in 10.86 and 22.19. The Citadel-bound senior said he injured his hamstring in the first outdoor meet and only resumed racing this month.

1. The last hurrah: graduating cadets to help lead The Citadel and Charleston to the world stage
On a hot, humid, August day in 2011, David Cunningham of Ridgewood, New Jersey, and Brittaney Maples of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, reported to The Citadel to begin their freshman year of college. Both were attracted to the iconic South Carolina military college because of the band's reputation and the unique style of education offered. What they discovered in Band Company, one of the college's 21 cadet military units, was an esprit de corps and an opportunity to take their talent to new horizons. "Regimental Band is different than any other company in the Corps," said Maples, who plays the flute and the piccolo. "We are a team from day one. Even though we are knobs when we come in as freshmen, the minute that we sit down in the chairs, we are teammates with upper classmen. That's just the way it is. It's totally different-the camaraderie. The relationships that we build with each other across the entire company-it's something special that is indescribable to anybody. It's something that definitely keeps us going through all four years here, and it's something I'm very thankful for because it's an experience unlike any other."

3. Old Citadel organ to be dedicated during Piccolo Spoleo
After lying silent for decades in moldy chambers high above the floor of The Citadel's historic Summerall Chapel, the college's Reuter pipe organ is slowly coming back to life. The first of several phases is complete, funded by gifts to the college through The Citadel Foundation. The organ will be dedicated at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 31, as part of Piccolo Spoleto's L'Organo Recital Series during a special evening performance by organist Stephen Distad and trumpeter Justin Langham, both of Houston, Texas. They will perform as Deux Voix, which means "Two Voices."

4. IOP councilman urges area support of plastic bag ban
It's been smooth sailing for the proposed ban on plastic bags at Isle of Palms retail checkout counters but one councilman who voted for the measure Tuesday said it needs wider support to be effective. "Will it make an impact? It's hard to say. It needs to go beyond Isle of Palms," Council member Ryan Buckhannon said Wednesday. The IOP Council voted 8-0 on Tuesday in favor of the ban which will likely be up for a final vote on June 23. If it passes then, IOP would be first in the state to outlaw single-use plastic bags at retail checkout counters. Gregory said single-use plastic bags easily disintegrate and pose a threat to marine life. 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.

5b. Santorum Hopes To Catch Lightning In A Bottle A Second Time
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is praying for political lightning to strike twice. Even after pulling an upset win in the Iowa caucuses four years ago and going on to survive the longest against eventual nominee Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential hopeful is again the underdog in a much more crowded 2016 field. Santorum announced his second bid for president Wednesday near his boyhood home in Butler County, Pa., and he is nowhere near the silver-medal finish he pulled off in 2012. But that's not stopping him from preaching his brand of "blue-collar conservatism," with an emphasis on workers and manufacturing, while also reiterating his foreign-policy experience - and hoping the unthinkable can happen again. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is pictured speaking during the Republican Society Patriot Dinner at The Citadel Military College in Charleston, S.C., in February.

7. BOE asks county for more personnel
The Lee County Board of Education asked the Lee County Board of Commissioners to fund an increase in teacher pay and additional personnel to help the system's highest and lowest achievers. To highlight the necessity of programs like Advancement Via Individual Determination, which aims to challenge students to take harder courses and prepare them for college and other post-secondary opportunities, Lee County Schools Superintendent Andy Bryan invited Alexis Fox and Addi Gonzalez to speak to the commissioners during a joint budget workshop this week. "I feel like if it wasn't for AVID, I wouldn't have the bright future ahead of me that I do now," Gonzalez, a senior at Southern Lee High School, said during the meeting Tuesday evening. "Every student has to have that one teacher (that believes in them), and that AVID teacher is kind of like a second mom." Gonzalez, whose parents didn't attend college, received an academic scholarship of about $250,000 to attend Davidson College. Fox said she owes much of her success to AVID as well. Fox will attend The Citadel in South Carolina this fall.

9. Former Clemson head coach Bill Foster dies
Bill Foster, 79, who guided Clemson to the Elite Eight of the 1980 NCAA Tournament in the school's first NCAA invitation, passed away on Wednesday afternoon in Charlotte, N.C. after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. The native of Hemingway, S.C. is the only coach to serve as the head coach of three current Atlantic Coast Conference institutions (Clemson, Miami and Virginia Tech) and is one of the few coaches in NCAA history to have multiple 20-win seasons at four different schools. After five seasons at Shorter, he took a post as assistant coach at The Citadel in 1967 and remained with the Charleston, S.C. based military school for two seasons. Following his tenure at The Citadel, Foster took on the challenge of bringing the UNC Charlotte program to the Division I level. In just five years under Foster's guidance, Charlotte (the school's name today) had an 87-39 record, including a 46-7 record over the last two seasons. He also held the post of Director of Athletics for his final two years.

2. Solemn day as Chester remembers fallen soldiers in too many wars
A young boy handed out free, tiny American flags, a little girl thanked an aging Navy veteran for his service to the country and a bagpiper led the parade with a rendition of the Marines Hymn. All in all, it was about as Americana as it could get as a few hundred people turned out for the annual Memorial Day parade, speeches and music. Fred Weippert, vice commander of American Legion Post 342, said he was proud to have a grandson who recently graduated from the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., and was now in the Air force. "We stand in the midst of patriots," Weippert said. "God bless you. God bless our troops and God bless America."

3. Markets, Not Janet Yellen, Should Set Interest Rates
Financial markets in the United States and around the world are all waiting with "bated breath" for when the Federal Reserve modifies its "easy money" policy and starts to raise interest rates. No one, however, asks a simple question: Why is the American central bank in the interest rate setting business? In May 20th, the minutes were released of the April 2015 meeting of the Open Market Committee (OMC) of the Federal Reserve. The Open Market Committee decides when and by how much America's central bank should intervene into the financial markets to influence the amount of money and credit in the banking system and, therefore, over time, in the U.S. economy as a whole.

4. Fashionable fellas: Men show stylish sides to benefit Family Crisis Council
On the evening of May 16, a sea of seersucker spread across an emerald green lawn on Confederate Avenue. The occasion was High Cotton, a men's fashion show, with local men modeling selections from their own closets. Hosts were Seamus and Tracy Donaldson. District Court Judge James Randolph, one of nearly two dozen good men who were good sports for good cause, had a simple explanation. "When you graduate from law school, they give you a diploma and a seersucker suit, and off you go," Randolph said. "The rest is up to you." At 99, Ralph Wagoner brought down the house - er, the big white tent - when he took the stage, escorted by Bradshaw. The World War II veteran graduated from the Citadel in 1936, is the retired vice president of Wagoner Construction, and, according to emcee Justin Dionne, "still likes to charm the ladies!" The whistles and applause from the crowd surely bore that out. Wagoner was an early supporter of the organization and remains a silent angel today, Bradshaw noted.

6. In the FCS Huddle: Best games by FCS conference
If you have ever noticed discussions of the "Game of the Year" come along multiple times during a college football season, then you know a thing or two about hype. We think we know all the big games way before they happen, but they don't always pan out. Upstarts emerge. Favorites disappoint. What happens in weeks 1 or 2 can alter that anticipated "Game of the Year" in Week 8 or at season's end. Basically, many great games take place. Rivalry: VMI at The Citadel (Nov. 7). The Citadel has won the last eight meetings of the "The Military Classic of the South," but the atmosphere surrounding the game is still top-notch.

When my father, Gen. Davis, first entered the army prior to World War II, he was a young officer and fortunate to be a member of the honor guard at Arlington National Cemetary. In the darkness he would ride his horse to inspect the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - on guard 24 hours a day, riding past the thousands of head stones and heroes buried there from America's past wars. The only noise was the sound of the horse's hooves. As Gen. Davis rode through the yard, he sensed the spiritual presence of all those great heroes buried there, relying on him to watch over the cemetery.

1c. Celebrate Memorial Day 2015
Just as Labor Day brings an end to the summer, Memorial Day kicks off the season for vacations, spending time with family and picnics. Although it started after the Civil War to honor Union and Confederate soldiers who had died, Memorial Day was extended by the 20th century to include all American soldiers and observed as a federal holiday the last Monday in May. This spot, turned into a park, sits adjacent to the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, and cadets can be seen jogging there any day of the week. The story was noted in an article written by David W. Blight, author of several books concerning the Civil War and a teacher of American history at Yale University. It is a traditional observance on Memorial Day for the flag of the United States to be raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains until noon and is raised for the remainder of the day.

3a. Memorial Day the Manteca way
When he was a young man attending The Citadel military college in South Carolina some 45 years ago, Memorial Day took on a lifelong personal meaning for Jack Hagan. "I remember vividly on those days they read the names of the graduates that had been killed in Vietnam. And there was not a week that went by that a name was not read; sometimes it was two, sometimes it was one every day." "And that was a significant impact on a young man that was headed to Vietnam as a platoon commander," said Hagan, today a brigadier general and commanding general of the California State Military Reserve who served as the keynote speaker Sunday at Manteca's Not Forgotten Memorial Day Weekend event at Woodward Park.

3b. Re-enactors mark 150 years since end of Civil War
On the Friday night before the Occupation of Manatee, Mike Bloski cooked campfire stew for a crew of about a dozen Civil War re-enactors. He did it with an awkward bandage on his thumb - the first wound of the weekend. "I had a can accident earlier," Bloski explained, laughing at himself. "If you don't draw blood at a re-enactment, then you're not trying." Most of the participants came from the Gulf Coast, but Michael Santana traveled all the way from Miami. The 22-year-old just graduated from The Citadel in South Carolina, where Civil War history hits close to home for cadets.

After 72 years, the memories are fading a bit as Don Mueller recalls his days in the Army during World War II. "It didn't bother me to go," Mueller said. "Everybody else was going. I really wanted to go." He was drafted, entering the service on March 13, 1943, and went through training at Fort Jackson in South Carolina, Camp Gordon in Georgia, The Citadel in South Carolina, Camp Grant in Illinois and Fort Ord in California. He was assigned to a medical detachment of the 3rd Engineers Special Brigade Mueller had four months of intensive instruction in field medical aid, emergency operating technique and battle maneuvers. He was sent overseas on Dec. 22, 1943, to serve in the Pacific Theater in New Guinea and the Philippines, including the invasion of Luzon.

1. Keeping America safe: a look at one of the nation's top producers of criminal justice professionals
There is one, very definable thing that people who get accepted into The Citadel's Department of Criminal Justice share. That's according to the retired secret service special agent in charge teaching many of the future detectives, police officers and special service agents attending The Military College of South Carolina. "They all come in here focused and intent on helping keep their country and communities safe - they simply possess a strong sense of purpose," says Edwin Lugo, visiting instructor at The Citadel. "It's the common thread of what drew me to be an agent and brings these young men and women to our program- the desire to help make things right," said Lugo. "I have always had a sense of wanting to help someone who can't help him or herself." Cadet Raymond St. John, a Citadel Class of 2015 criminal justice graduate agrees with his former instructor. "I chose criminal justice because I have always wanted to be law enforcement. I wanted a career where I could make an impact in the world right around me."

You couldn't blame the kids wandering around the hangar building at Skypark Airport last Saturday if they seemed to have their heads in the clouds. After all, they were there to take part in the aerospace camp sponsored by the Medina County Skyhawks Civil Air Patrol and Cadet Program. The campers, ages 11 to 15, came from all over Medina County and beyond to try their hand at building and launching water bottle rockets, flying a drone, piloting a flight simulator, landing a miniature plane via a zipline, designing gliders and Mars landers, and getting an up-close tour of a Cessna airplane. "We've had cadets become pilots. One is with the Air Force and one is at The Citadel. One is going to New Zealand to represent the USA at a world gathering of Civil Air Patrol cadets," Stein said.

Two events steeped in the history of the Lowcountry are being held on one of the nation's most iconic college campuses, The Citadel, as part of the 2015 Piccolo Spoleto Festival. The first will envelope the audience with emotion as they hear the difficult and the beautiful real stories behind the paintings of one of America’s great artists, Jonathan Green, from the artist himself. "Every time I approach the canvas to express my respect for my heritage and culture I strive to capture the magnificent legacy my ancestors left me and my family, despite their enslavement, oppression, and horrific challenges they faced on a daily basis even after the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation," Green said. "I marvel how under such conditions they were able to share such incredible love with one another, maintain a sense of community, create an atmosphere of belonging, and instill in their children a sense of purpose and meaning in life."

During Piccolo Spoleto, Green will present a lecture with a slideshow of his work, which has always portrayed the landscapes and people of the Lowcountry.

Radical realignment is becoming a trend in college sports, as schools and conferences have chosen to chase cash that revenue-generating sports create rather than stick within the boundaries of tradition and geography. The Post and Courier columnist Gene Sapakoff suggested in the wake of growing economic chasm that's been created between the Power Five Conferences and everyone else that South Carolina State should be one of many schools in the regions to join a melting pot conference to save a few bucks. Other schools included are: The Citadel, Charleston Southern, College of Charleston, Coastal Carolina and Wofford among many others.

5. South Carolina has the SEC's best non-conference schedule
The SEC has football scheduling down to a science. Four non-conference games. One against a major-conference opponent, not necessarily a heavyweight, and three games against lower competition, in most cases a I-AA opponent. Of the 14 SEC schools, nine adhere to the model. Some of the holdouts miss on the side of tougher schedule, some on the side of easier schedule. Let's rank the SEC schedules: 1. South Carolina: North Carolina in Charlotte, Central Florida, The Citadel, Clemson. Great schedule. Maybe there's a tougher non-conference slate in America, but I don't know what it is. A decent ACC program that's also a rivalry game (both schools like to be called Carolina), a great ACC program that's a bitter rival (Clemson) and a really good mid-major (Central Florida).

Citadel competition winners walked in with an idea and walked out with a business The day started early with four teams who had worked the entire academic year to get to this point: the finals of a business innovation contest that could provide the seed money and assistance needed to help propel their ideas from concept stage into functioning businesses. The slightly nervous but determined competitors represented the entire spectrum of those who study at The Citadel: cadets, veteran students, graduate students and evening undergraduate students. All had invested hours of their already busy lives researching, planning, and polishing viable business concepts to "sell" to a panel of executives during Shark Tank-like battles. This was the third and final round of the very first Bulldog Business Bowl, sponsored by The Citadel School of Business.

"You're all invited to come - spend money when you do - and I will tell you what I'm going to do about running for president," Graham said, teasing an announcement in "beautiful" central South Carolina at the beginning of next month on CBS "This Morning." Photo 12: Graham and McCain call on participants during a health care town hall meeting on September 14, 2009 at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. According to his website, Graham is a native South Carolinian and grew up in a blue collar family in the small town of Central, where his parents ran a restaurant and pool hall.

4. Why government deficits and debt do matter
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported in early May that for the month of April 2015 the Federal government ran a budget surplus, taking in more in taxes than it laid out in expenditures. Don't be fooled by one month, especially when it was a month when people filed and pay their taxes. Government deficits and growing debt are on the horizon for as far as the human eye can predict. Yes, for right now the trillion-dollar-a-year budget deficits that marked the first years of the Obama Administration have abated. For 2015 through 2017, the CBO projects that Washington's budget deficits will be "only" in the range of $468 billion and $489 billion per year.

5. Sapakoff: Carolinas Conference will cut deficits at College of Charleston, Citadel, CSU
LSU is building an $84.75 million leisure project complete with a lazy river that spells out "LSU" and a 21,000-square-foot sun deck. Never mind Louisiana's projected cut of $500 million in higher education funding that might mean layoffs for tenured LSU professors. For instance, the College of Charleston baseball team played three games at Northeastern University in Brookline, Mass., this week. Attendance at Thursday's game: 107. Which means that after the Cougars traveled 980 miles to Boston, there were more players and workers at Friedman Diamond than fans. And the College of Charleston recently cut its men's and women's swimming programs. A Carolinas Conference makes too much sense to ignore, not just for the College of Charleston, The Citadel and Charleston Southern but for almost every mid-major athletic department in the Carolinas.

6. Sapakoff: Warming up to an NCAA baseball Charleston Regional
The College of Charleston baseball team isn't very popular. Only 506 people showed up Sunday at Patriots Point to see a critical Colonial Athletic Association regular-season title-clinching victory over UNC Wilmington. The Cougars are 1-3 against mediocre South Carolina and Clemson this season. Dream Charleston Regional: 1. Cougars, 2. Coastal Carolina, No. 3 South Carolina, No. 4 The Citadel, Wofford or Furman. The Citadel (eighth place in the Southern Conference) probably won't win next week's SoCon Tournament at Riley Park, but third-place Wofford and fifth-place Furman have a shot at sewing up the automatic bid that will mean an NCAA tournament No. 4 seed.

7a. Bulldogs Squeeze Past Paladins in Extra Innings
Connor Walsh led off the top of the 10th with a solo homer to give The Citadel the lead, and Clay Martin made a running catch in deep right center in the bottom of the inning to seal a 5-4 victory over Furman in the opening game of the final Southern Conference series of the season. The Bulldogs (24-27, 9-13 SoCon) need to win the remaining two games against the Paladins (23-30, 10-12) to avoid playing in Tuesday's opening round of the conference tournament at Riley Park. The Citadel has won six of its past seven SoCon games. Freshman southpaw JP Sears (5-4, 4.23 ERA) will pitch for the Bulldogs on Saturday, and sophomore righty Matthew Quarles (5-2, 5.01) will toe the slab for the Paladins.

3. Saturday's Bulls Bay Nature Festival to offer 35 free activities, including paddling, hikes, kids activities
While the Charleston area gets tons of national press for its history, architecture, restaurants, warm weather and hospitality, one of its less appreciated assets is its vast expanse of green and blue open space to its north and east. As the greater Charleston area's growth chews up more natural areas, the Francis Marion National Forest and Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, in all, encompassing about 315,000 acres, offers a barrier to sprawling madness. The one event to draw everyone together at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Sewee center will be the festival's keynote speech, "Lowcountry Botanical Potpourri," by renowned field biologist Richard Porcher, a former professor at The Citadel and author of "Wildflowers of the Carolina Lowcountry and the Lower Pee Dee."

Joseph Ellison Adger Smyth was born in Charleston, October 26, 1847. His mother, Margaret, was a member of the Adger family of Charleston that had prospered financially in shipping, warehousing, and hardware. He had the advantage of growing up in the home of his antiquarian father and his collection of books, maps, and manuscripts, which the lad could use to expand his learning. His studies prepared him for entrance into South Carolina Military College (The Citadel), where he studied until 1864 when he took a hiatus to serve in the Confederate Army.

Western Carolina closes both its 2015 baseball regular season and home schedule by welcoming long-time, returning conference rival, the Virginia Military Institute, to the friendly confines of Childress Field / Hennon Stadium for a three-game Southern Conference set beginning on Thursday evening. Both Western Carolina (20-26, 10-11 SoCon) and VMI (18-27, 10-11 SoCon) enter the two-day, three-game series amidst a three-way tie for fifth-place, knotted with Furman (23-29, 10-11 SoCon) in the conference standings. WCU needs any combination of one victory or one loss by The Citadel in its SoCon series at Furman to lock itself into Wednesday's first full day of conference tournament play, avoiding Tuesday's single-elimination No. 8 vs. No. 9 game in Charleston, S.C., against East Tennessee State.

Presbyterian got four consecutive two-out hits and scored five times in the top of the first, and three Blue Hose pitchers made the lead stand up in a 6-3 victory over The Citadel on Tuesday at Riley Park in the final non-conference game of the 2015 campaign. The Bulldogs (23-27) head to Greenville, S.C., this weekend to face Furman in a three-game Southern Conference series that wraps up the regular season. The Citadel needs to sweep the Paladins in order to avoid playing in the opening round game of the SoCon Tournament next week. The win was the first in 18 games for Presbyterian (25-27) in Charleston dating back to 1965 when complete records are available. The Bulldogs were also denied their 20th home victory of the season and will have to win at least one game in the tournament to reach that plateau for the 16th time in 18 full seasons at Riley Park.

Henry led Winthrop in scoring with 11.4 points per game in 2012-13 before tearing his ACL late in the season. After sitting out a year, he returned to play in 32 games last season, averaging 4.4 points and 16.1 minutes off the bench.

She was part of the college's growing population of veteran students; former members of the military who are drawn to the culture and atmosphere of a senior military college. After three years in the U.S. Air Force as a 1C551 Airman (responsible for airspace control and monitoring) stationed in Germany, Stephenson left active duty temporarily, to attend The Citadel through the Air Force Scholarships for Outstanding Airmen to ROTC (SOAR) program.

3. A Declaration of Independence From Big Government
The Declaration of Independence, proclaimed by members of the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, is the founding document of the American experiment in free government. What is too often forgotten is that what the Founding Fathers argued against in the Declaration was the heavy and intrusive hand of big government. Most Americans easily recall those eloquent words with which the Founding Fathers expressed the basis of their claim for independence from Great Britain in 1776: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed - That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Rick Santorum hinted Saturday in South Carolina that he is close to announcing whether he will again run for president, telling a gathering of conservative activists he's driven by what he called President Barack Obama's failures on national security. "Russia, China and yes, radical Islam, is threatening our country," the former Pennsylvania senator said. "Heck, I would just be happy if our president would be able to tell the difference between our friends and enemies." Santorum, who narrowly won the lead-off Iowa caucuses in 2012, also touted his connections to South Carolina, the third state to cast ballots in the presidential primaries. Two of his sons attended The Citadel in Charleston, and he has a niece graduating Saturday from the University of South Carolina.

2b. How Rubio's aggressive South Carolina strategy threatens Bush
The critical early-voting state of South Carolina is emerging as a crucial front in the rivalry between Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Florida governor Jeb Bush. Expectations for Rubio are soaring, Republicans say, putting pressure on Bush in a state his brother and father won - a state which has earned a reputation as a firewall protecting front-runners from insurgent underdogs. Rubio, an underdog for the nomination who faces opponents with longer political resumes and deeper roots in the GOP, is in some ways an unlikely bet for South Carolina. As of now, he is averaging under 5 percent support there in recent polling. Bush has tapped Brett Doster, a Tallahassee-based GOP consultant who has known him for more than two decades, to lead his South Carolina team. Despite studying at the Citadel for four years, he lacks any on-the-ground political experience in South Carolina.

College football teams have mascots. Many mascots are dogs. Only a few teams are smart and wonderful enough to have live dogs chilling on the sidelines. These are the best teams.

4b. More spending is not the answer to a slow economy
Old fallacies never seem to die, they just fad away to reemerge once again later on. One such fallacy is that if there is significant unemployment and slow economic growth it must be due to not enough consumers' spending in the economy, what Keynesian economists call a "failure of aggregate demand." This fallacy has been voiced, once more, in a recent interview with Joseph Stiglitz, professor of economics at Columbia University and the 2001 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics.

4c. Speaker's research exonerates Confederate leader Ewell
Now that the 150th anniversary celebrations and observances of the Civil War have created a renewed interest in the American conflict, historians are able to again re-examine and focus on some of the issues that were spawned by the war. As he campaigned for the presidency in 1880, Gen. Winfield Hancock seized the opportunity to heap criticism on Confederate Gen. Richard S. Ewell, noted Mick Bednarski, featured speaker at the Thursday's edition of the California University of Pennsylvania Civil War Roundtable. Bednarski's presentation, and subject of his doctoral dissertation, which he received from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, will be "Exposing General Richard S. Ewell's Critics." After graduating from Trinity High School in Washington, Pa., Bednarski, 47, received his bachelor of arts degree in history from Coastal Carolina University, in Conway, S.C., where he was a catcher and designated hitter for the Chanticleer's baseball team. Bednarski followed with a master of arts degree in U.S. history from The Citadel Military College of South Carolina, Charleston, S.C.

4d. Three Overlooked Questions About the Civil War
There are three overlooked questions about the Civil War for which I can't find answers. You, dear readers, are the experts in history. Answers and sources are always appreciated. 1. How much hate and rage existed between the Unionists and Secessonists prior to 1860 so that Lincoln's election was the breaking point? 2. What were the legal theories used to justify maintaining and breaking the US? 3. Why were college students, i.e. the Corps of Cadets of The Citadel, the first combat troops employed by the Confederacy?

5c. Two golds and THS' Henson leaves as one of the most decorated male athletes in school history
There he was on the tennis courts of Columbus, Georgia, the 12-year-old from Bristol in his first national tournament. This wasn't just some kid, though. It was Matt Henson, the scion of former King College tennis players Mike and Jennifer Henson, the future Tennessee High state champion, a guy who in less than two weeks could join sophomore doubles partner Jacob Marshall as the most-decorated male athlete in school history. First match - a breeze. A win, but of course. Victory as birthright, the old tale of a preordained prodigy turning his silver spoon into gold and glory. Henson, decked out in tie and blazer, had just made his dreams official, signing his commitment letter to become a member of the NCAA Division I tennis program at The Citadel, one of only six senior military colleges in the country.

But that very change may point up the challenge that faces Perry as the dust gathers on his Texas run after even a few months away from the job, said Scott Buchanan, associate professor of political science and executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in South Carolina, among the states where Perry and others are wooing voters. "When somebody is running for president, or really any office, there's a disadvantage when they don't currently hold office."

4a. The Folly and Presumption of Big Government Social Engineering
One of the social mythologies of our time is that it is in the power and ability of governments to remake society in any image or shape that those with political authority consider "good," "right," and "just" for mankind. No other idea has caused more horror and hardship in modern times. The extreme attempts at such "social engineering" in the twentieth century were in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. The communists believed that man is the product of his social institutions. Abolish private property, impose material egalitarianism, and indoctrinate people from their youth in an ideology and psychology of economic collectivism and political altruism, and a "new socialist man" would be created that would lead to post-scarcity heaven on earth. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, He was formerly professor of Economics at Northwood University. Was formerly president of The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), was the Ludwig von Mises Professor of Economics at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan, and served as president of academic affairs for The Future of Freedom Foundation (FFF).

As we are all quite aware from watching the news or reading any kind of blog or newspaper, we are unequivocally experiencing a period of great market volatility. Casual investors, professional traders and even people who don't have money in the markets can't ignore what we are experiencing on a global economic level. The sheer impact of macro and micro economic events around the globe are serving as catalysts for market activity on daily and even intraday basis. "And while the long-term result of a rate increase will be positive for consumers, short term, it's likely to be costly, said economist Richard Ebeling, the BB&T distinguished professor of ethics and free enterprise leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. "This entire time of quantitative easing has meant they have had access to artificially low interest costs for consumer loans, auto loans, home loans," he said. "Even a modest increase by the Fed will start nudging up all the related interest rates."

I wonder how many Cleveland County folks know where Howie Street in Shelby is. I know I didn't until a year or so ago when I happened upon it just driving around town one morning. Howie Street is a short avenue that connects West Sumter Street to West Marion Street in front of the City Park. It runs beside the library. I have lived in Shelby the better part of 60 years and yet had never noticed there is a small garden monument on Howie Street. The spot and the street are dedicated to Maj. Thomas D. Howie. He was a native of Abbeville, S.C., and a graduate of The Citadel. All Citadel graduates know his story thoroughly. The plaque was erected some years ago by the Plaster family here in Shelby. Howie's sister was married to our former mayor and well-known dentist here, Hubert Plaster.

Sapakoff: NBA's MVP Stephen Curry gave C of C, Citadel, USC a sneak peek at 'nightmare' skills
The College of Charleston would have another NCAA Tournament banner or two if the start of Bobby Cremins' stint as head coach didn't coincide with the unexpectedly fantabulous Stephen Curry Era at Davidson. But Curry, the 27-year-old Golden State Warriors' guard named NBA Most Valuable Player on Monday, was no sure thing as a college freshman. His other top scholarship offers came from VCU and Winthrop. That explains the rock star treatment Curry got during his junior year from kids gathered around the Davidson bus when it pulled up to sellouts at the College of Charleston's TD Arena and The Citadel's McAlister Field House. "When he came down the court, you were on the edge of your seat hoping your guys were in position because you knew he could strike so fast," said former Citadel head coach Ed Conroy, now the head coach at Tulane.

Waring was set to take over as football coach at St. John's High School in the fall of 2009, and figured he'd get an early look at his new team by attending spring practice. Because Waring did not take over at St. John's until Robinson's senior year, word did not get out on the versatile Robinson until late in the recruiting process. He believed he had an offer from The Citadel, but that fell through about a week before signing day, Waring said. "He was crushed when he wasn't able to go to The Citadel," Waring said. "National signing day was just a week down the road, and we had to do something. We called down to Newberry, and they gave him a chance. As he grew into an outside linebacker, I thought, 'This kid as a shot.'"

2a. Lindsey Graham Tells South Carolina He's Ready for a Presidential Bid
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham used his short speech to a Friday night Republican gala to dispel any doubt that he will run for president. Graham was one of four likely presidential candidates who stumped and spoke at the state party's annual Silver Elephant dinner. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum preceded Graham by one-upping each other with praise for the major southern primary. "South Carolina changed my life," said Santorum. He pointed out his son John, who attended The Citadel in Charleston, and presented the flags before the dinner. Santorum recalled how his son contrasted the horror stories of kids at other colleges with the life of Citadel students, and how another son was so inspired that he, too, attended The Citadel en route to the Air Force.

2b. Perry legacy being chipped away
...But that very change may point up the challenge that faces Perry as the dust gathers on his Texas resume, said Scott Buchanan, associate professor of political science and executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in South Carolina, an early presidential primary state where Perry and others are wooing voters. "When somebody is running for president, or really any office, there's a disadvantage when they don't currently hold office. Even though Gov. Perry has only been out of office a few months - it hasn't been long, but as a politician once told me, a month in politics is like an eternity. Life moves on. Politics moves on," Buchanan said.

3. Approve bonds for higher ed
The Senate's pending $236 million bond bill for college construction projects and repairs to state armories is a practical and pain-free way to address mounting problems. Despite Gov. Nikki Haley's threats to veto it - or any borrowing plan - the bond bill deserves full support as the Senate takes up the issue this week. Then the House should sign on. Members also should be prepared to overturn the governor's veto if she doesn't snap out of her misguided opposition. Four-year colleges would receive about $130 million, including $6 million for The Citadel, mostly to build a new Capers Hall. Seven million would go to the College of Charleston for building repairs and renovations to the Stern Center and the Simons Center for the Arts. The Medical University of South Carolina would receive $20 million toward a new children's hospital.

4. Free Trade Benefits vs. Fears of Foreign Goods
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke before a joint session of the U.S. Congress on April 29, 2015 and offered his "eternal condolences to the souls of all American people that were lost during World War II," but never directly said that he was sorry for Imperial Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The real purpose for his visit to Washington, D.C. and his address before Congress was to push for Congressional approval of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) between the U.S., Japan and 10 other nations (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam).

5. Honor Flight a 'very personal trip' for vet
Donald Prehn of Wausau was just 18 years old, studying pre-med at The Citadel in South Carolina, when he was drafted into the United States Army. World War II had recently ended when Prehn was sent to Japan to serve during the American Occupation. "It was an interesting time in my life. I look back on it with a lot of fond memories and a lot of appreciation for what the other guys did over there prior to us arriving," said Prehn, 87. Here, Prehn talks about serving in post-war Japan and about visiting Washington, D.C., in 2012 on the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.

8a. The Citadel Downs Samford in Opener of SoCon Set
James Reeves held Samford in check for six innings, Zach Lavery stranded the tying runs in the seventh and Skylar Hunter pitched two innings of one-hit ball to close it out, leading The Citadel to a 6-4 win at Samford in the opening game of a Southern Conference series. The Citadel (19-25, 4-12 SoCon) built a 6-2 lead in the sixth and held on to give Reeves his first victory since no-hitting Mercer on April 2. The redshirt junior southpaw allowed only three hits and two runs while striking out seven to improve to 6-3 on the season. Reeves and Samford starter Alex Ledford entered the game tied for the all-time lead among active SoCon pitchers with 17, but the Samford ace was touched up for 10 hits and all six runs in six innings in dropping to 6-4.

3. Sertoma gets earlier start this summer
The traditional start to football season in the Lowcountry will sound off earlier this summer. The next Sertoma Classic will be held Aug. 13-14 at the Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium. It has been moved up a week to accommodate more schools. Week 0 games increasingly became an issue and bumping up the annual Classic will allow more schools to participate without having a real regular season game the next night or wipe out involvement in Sertoma altogether. The next Classic will also feature powderpuff games and 8-man football. Four Berkeley County schools are in featured matchups that will last two periods rather than the usual one period.
