1. Family of Myra Thompson celebrates 'home going' Monday
Twelve days after nine people were killed in a mass shooting at a bible study, the eighth victim is laid to rest. Family and friends will gather Monday morning at Emanuel AME church to say goodbye to Myra Thompson. Governor Nikki Haley and Mayor Joe Riley are expected to attend the service. As of Monday morning, the family requested that no cameras be allowed in the church. "Today we lay to rest Myra Thompson," Senator Tim Scott said on Twitter Monday morning. "Please keep her family in your prayers." The Citadel posted a memorial on their website honoring the woman who was killed while teaching the bible study that Wednesday night in the church basement. "Mrs. Thompson was a pastor at the church and a life-long educator and learner who earned two Masters in Education degrees from The Citadel graduate college. She graduated in 1994 with a M.Ed. in Reading Education and then graduated in 1999 with a M.Ed. in Secondary Counselor of Education."

2. Charleston church shooting hits home for Tulane basketball coach Ed Conroy
Tulane coach Ed Conroy has spent a good amount of time in South Carolina. The Davenport, Iowa native played at The Citadel from 1985-89 and followed that with coaching stints at Furman (assistant, 1994-97), Francis Marion (head coach, 1997-2000), Coastal Carolina (2005-06) and returned to his alma mater as the head coach from 2006-10. The Citadel is located in Charleston, where on June 17, nine people were gunned down inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. As the initial shock of the shooting began to subside, Conroy, who said he'd been by the church hundreds of times, began to wonder if he knew any of the church members that had been murdered. It turns out he did -- 45-year old Sharonda Coleman-Singleton.

3. 10 high-profile places that have banned the Confederate flag
One hundred and fifty years after the Civil War, the battle flag of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia is coming down. In the shadow of the Charleston church shooting, photos surfaced of the alleged mass murderer waving the Confederate flag around, sparking a instantaneous movement to take down the flag. For most Americans, the Confederate flag is associated with racism and slavery. It gained its modern popularity with the movement in the '40s and '50s to frustrate civil rights, often violently. Its defenders, in more recent years, have held tight to these roots with conviction in the mantra "heritage not hate"-an argument that has fallen on deaf ears after the Charleston massacre. 9.) The Citadel South Carolina's Citadel is one of America's premier military schools, on a par with West Point. Leaders there have voted to remove the Confederate Naval Jack from The Citadel's Summerall Chapel. For this to happen, state legislators will have to amend the South Carolina Heritage Act. And even if they do, the flag will be relocated, not removed altogether.

Santorum's two oldest sons, John and Daniel, are both cadets at The Citadel.

7. Citadel volleyball adds two signees
The Citadel volleyball head coach Craig Mosqueda announced on Monday that Sumerlyn Carruthers and Abigail Murn will join the South Carolina Corps of Cadets as part of the Class of 2019.

Murn, a 5-6 libero and defensive specialist from Lake Norman High School in Mooresville, N.C., is a two-sport athlete that will also compete for The Citadel track and field program. She received a scholarship for the track program and will compete as in the pole vault, triple jump and high jump events.

8. Performance coach emphasizes whole-player training, team-first attitude
Both coaches and players talked a lot about the team's "culture" during BYU's annual football media day on Wednesday, and the changes they cited seem to point back to the arrival of new staff member Frank Wintrich. In the official media guide, his name is listed next to "Strength and Conditioning." However, elsewhere in the guide, on the team's official website and during media day interviews, Wintrich was and is referenced as "Director of Football Performance." Despite his military-style approach to training, Wintrich is not a veteran, but he said he's drawn his inspiration from those who are. He spent two years as the director of athletic development at The Citadel, a university in South Carolina patterned after the service academies.

1. Charleston has shown the world what a true community looks like
Our hearts have been broken, but our spirit hasn't. The senseless killing of nine people at Emanuel AME Church was meant to start a race war, to divide us. It was an appeal to our worst demons. But we responded with our better angels. We held hands across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, stood together in Marion Square, cried and sang as one at the College of Charleston, and covered the sidewalk in front of Mother Emanuel with flowers. This is a place where The Citadel's Board of Visitors votes to remove the Confederate Naval Jack from Summerall Chapel. That flag was a gift, a reminder of the school's proud history, but as school President John Rosa so eloquently said, moving it was the least The Citadel could do for its sister organization, Mother Emanuel.

8a. USC opponent preview: No upset, but perhaps improvement from The Citadel
At The Citadel, expectations are a relative thing. The athletic limitations inherent in a military college with a small enrollment certainly make the 5-7 record achieved in head coach Mike Houston's first season look better than it might be viewed elsewhere, especially considering the Bulldogs rebounded from a rough start to win five of their last nine games. And Houston has an interesting team coming back, returning 16 starters from the group which beat transitioning Football Bowl Championship program Charlotte in double-overtime, lost a close game at Wofford, and finished with alumni-pleasing victories over Furman and VMI. The Bulldogs may well build on that first-year effort if they can find a quarterback to replace Aaron Miller, who finished second in the Southern Conference in rushing and seventh in passing yards per game.

8b. Summerville Names Joe Call Interim Head Football Coach
Summerville has announced that offensive coordinator Joe Call will take over as the head football coach on an interim basis for the 2015 season. Call takes over for John McKissick who retired last week after a 63 year stint as the Green Wave's head coach that included 620 wins and 10 state championships. "It's been kind of a whirlwind," Call said when reached by phone on Thursday night. "I get a year to prove myself which is fine with me. I know I've got 100% support from the principal, the superintendent and the assistants and I've gotten overwhelming support from the community." Call, who is McKissick's grandson, has been at Summerville as an assistant coach since 2003. He played quarterback for the Green Wave when he was in high school and would go on to play at The Citadel. Call said he spoke to McKissick after being told the good news and said there were some "happy tears".

1a. Citadel leaders vote to move Confederate flag from college's chapel
Leaders of The Citadel, the Military College in Charleston want to relocate a confederate flag at the school. As WYFF News 4's Corey Davis explains, it will require a change in state law. The confederate flag on The Citadel campus, looks like this one here in Greenville, at the museum and library of confederate history but there's a major difference. The flag at The Citadel requires a vote from lawmakers before it can be moved. The flag is protected under the south it passed in the year 2000 as the confederate flag was moved from atop the state house to the front of the capitol grounds. Several monuments, markers, streets and memorials across the state fall under the law. A two-thirds vote from lawmakers is required before any changes can be made, including the flag at The Citadel. "This is a very divisive subject. We have a flag, and people look at it in different lights. With as many members as we have, there are arguments on both sides," said Scott Tucker, chairman of the Board of Directors of The Citadel Alumni Association.

On September 2nd, Imperial Japan surrendered to the Allies on the deck of the U.S.S. Missouri in Tokyo Bay, thus ending a global conflict that is estimated to have cost the lives of upwards of 50 million people. In autumn of 1945, everyone was looking forward, finally, to a world at peace that could recover from the destruction of a catastrophic war and move towards a bright new future.

1. Statements from The Citadel
Statement from Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa: This has been a difficult week for our community and state. The Citadel has directly felt the impact of the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church as one of the victims was a Citadel Graduate College alumnus and six of our employees lost family members. The Emanuel AME Church is our neighbor and we consider it a part of our extended Citadel family. We will continue to support the church and its members in their time of need. Today, The Citadel Board of Visitors voted 9-3 in favor of moving the Confederate Naval Jack from Summerall Chapel to an appropriate location on campus. The move will require an amendment to the Heritage Act by the South Carolina legislature. The board's motion authorizes the Chair of the Board of Visitors and the administration of the college to work with the legislature on the amendment. The Board of Visitors and I believe now is the right time to move the flag from a place of worship to an appropriate location. We pride ourselves on our core values of honor, duty and respect. Moving the Naval Jack to another location is consistent with these values and is a model to all of the principled leadership we seek to instill in our cadets and students. It also promotes unity on our campus, in our community and across our state during this time of healing.

2a. The Citadel's Board Votes to Move Confederate Naval Flag From Chapel
The Board of Visitors of the Citadel, the public military college in South Carolina, on Tuesday voted to remove a Confederate naval flag from the campus's Summerall Chapel, as scrutiny of Confederate symbols has intensified nationwide following a mass shooting last week in a black church in Charleston, S.C. The flag, known as a Confederate Naval Jack, was presented to the college’s president in 1939 and is one of 57 flags that hang in the interior of the chapel. Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, the Citadel's president, said in a written statement that the board had voted 9 to 3 to move the flag from the chapel "to an appropriate location on campus." He said the move would require the South Carolina Legislature to amend a 2000 law known as the Heritage Act, which paved the way for the Confederate battle flag to be removed from its position atop the state capitol's dome and which allowed for the flag to be flown as part of a memorial on the statehouse grounds. The State, a newspaper in Columbia, S.C., reported that legislators had voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to debate removing the battle flag from the statehouse grounds.

5. USC close to filling 2016 football schedule
South Carolina is close to filling the vacant spot on its 2016 football schedule with a school from outside the Power 5 conferences, and the Gamecocks remain watchful for future major college opponents, athletics director Ray Tanner told The State. "We are having serious conversations with an opponent," Tanner said. "We are hoping to have it finalized soon." The Gamecocks are scheduled to play Clemson, East Carolina and South Carolina State in their out-of-conference games in 2016. Along with the eight SEC games, that gives South Carolina 11 opponents, one short of the 12 needed to complete the schedule. Clemson is the only out-of-conference opponent scheduled beyond the 2016 season. "Scheduling is not easy in college football right now," Tanner said. South Carolina will play North Carolina (Sept. 3), UCF (Sept. 26), The Citadel (Nov. 21) and Clemson (Nov. 28) in its out-of-conference schedule this season. The Gamecocks are paying UCF $300,000 and The Citadel $285,000 for those games. The game against the Tar Heels is a neutral site game at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

1. South Carolina leaders: Move Confederate flag from Capitol
South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn (Dem.) said, "So I was pleased that the Governor took a position, because it does two things. It allows all of us black and white together, to march into the future celebrating only the American flag and that proud blue with the Palmetto tree and crescent state flag of South Carolina, and secondly it will allow a lot of my friends to vote and it will have to pass. By two thirds the legislation that would be required to remove that battle flag from the grounds of the state capitol. I don't think it requires two thirds. It requires two thirds if you remove the flag under the current law. However, the legislature can rescind that law by a simple majority vote. That's what needs to happen, because that law is so broad, it would not allow The Citadel to remove that flag out of the chapel. The Attorney General of South Carolina told the administration of The Citadel because of that law, they cannot take the flag out of the Summerall Chapel down there when they say they want to take it out. So we need to rescind that law. You can do that with a simple majority vote."

3. Commercial mosquito control business is growing, but spraying could hurt good bugs
By now, many homeowners in the Charleston area have seen workers dressed in protective clothing and masks with leafblower-like machines shooting a fine mist into yards, bushes and flower beds. Within the past decade, commercial mosquito control businesses have mushroomed in the area and are flourishing, despite the presence of long-established, taxpayer-funded county abatement programs. Considering the national attention paid to mass die-offs of honeybees and butterflies, such as the Monarch butterflies, largely due to pesticides, not much has been made on commercial applications of pesticides for mosquitoes on beneficial insects. Those beneficials include native bees, ladybugs and parasitic wasps, which help control agricultural pests. Dr. John Weinstein, a biology professor at The Citadel with an expertise in environmental toxicology, says he's not an expert on commercial mosquito control applications, but that any pesticide that attacks the nervous system of an insect would not discriminate between mosquitoes and beneficial insects. "What's killing the mosquitoes will kill other insects," he says. "Using the products would affect anything (insect) exposed to them."

4. Tuition problems need answers
Tuition increases at the College of Charleston, The Citadel and Trident Technical College are smaller than in some years prior. But that is cold comfort to the student or student's family having to borrow even more money. The staggering amount of student debt is not just a South Carolina problem. Nationally it tops $1.2 trillion. That's an average of $29,000 among 40 million borrowers. And that much debt spurs some troubling situations: -Fewer college graduates are able to purchase houses. -They delay getting married and having children. -Those who do have children are unable to save for those children's college educations or for their own retirement. -With the government making many of the student loans, taxpayers bear the burden when they are not repaid. -Students are inclined to stop short of getting degrees because of the debt they will face. -That means fewer educated people for the workforce. -And when fewer people hold good jobs, that means less money for the Social Security programs that older Americans have come to rely on.

5. The Price to Play: Fees fuel athletics at smaller colleges
Each Citadel cadet will shell out a student athletic fee of $2,392 this year, money that helps fund intercollegiate athletics at the military school. That's almost a quarter of a cadet's total in-state tuition and fees, and enough money to purchase 26 season tickets for football under the school's young alumni plan. At College of Charleston, each undergraduate and graduate student will have to come up with $1,210 this year to fund Cougar athletics. That's 11.5 percent of in-state tuition and fees and enough to buy 12 season tickets for basketball under the Cougars' young alumni plan. Students at The Citadel, College of Charleston and the state's six other public, mid-major universities pay the freight for athletics on their campuses, subsidizing an average of 78 percent of the athletic budgets at those schools in 2013, according to data collected by USA Today.

6. Dick Harmon: New BYU football performance coach Wintrich explains new twists in offseason preparation
They're running around like picnic ants; huffing, puffing and straining in an early morning workout where normal guys their age would either be asleep or shuffling like zombies. This is the scene of a BYU defense workout this summer, a time most of the culture is kicked back looking for leisure. But it's a time all football teams pay the freight. The leader is BYU's new director of football performance Frank Wintrich, a muscle whisperer whose job is to reshape bodies and minds. Wintrich replaces longtime BYU conditioning coach Jay Omer, who retired after the Miami Beach Bowl. Wintrich previously worked at North Texas, Utah State and The Citadel Military Academy in Charleston, South Carolina. It was at The Citadel he got turned on to the "warrior culture," an obsession shared by his boss, BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall

1. Accomplished Marine commander to direct Cadets' leadership development
Leadership, ethics and service learning courses and experiences are a deeply embedded and required component of every cadet's four-year program at The Citadel. Though everyone in The Citadel community plays a role in developing cadets into principled leaders, much of the path that is followed is mapped out and implemented by The Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics. Starting July 15, Col. Tom Clark, USMC (Retired), will take the helm as the new executive director for the Krause Center. Clark, a member of The Citadel Class of 1985, will replace COL. Joseph Trez, USA (Retired), who was the executive director for the center when it was established in 2012. Trez graduated from The Citadel in 1969 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and recently retired after serving his alma mater in numerous positions for more than 30 years. His 26-year active duty military career included infantry command at every level, from platoon through brigade, and two tours of duty in Viet Nam. Clark retired from active service this month after serving 30 years as a Marine fighter pilot. He accumulated 4000 hours flight time and flew 115 combat missions. He served in leadership positions overseas during Operations DESERT STORM, ENDURING FREEDOM, and IRAQI FREEDOM and was deployed to the Middle East, Far East, South America, and South Pacific as well as aboard USS Coral Sea and USS Theodore Roosevelt.

3. University of South Carolina raises tuition 2.9 percent
The University of South Carolina's trustees voted Friday to raise tuition 2.9 percent, starting next fall. That increase means in-state undergraduate students at USC's Columbia campus will pay $11,482 for an academic year, or an increase of $324. Out-of-state undergraduate students will pay $30,298. The increase is the lowest percentage hike in 17 years. For the 1998-99 school year, the school's board OK'd a 2.8 percent hike, increasing tuition to $3,530. The tuition hike is in line with other increases at S.C. public schools. The College of Charleston recently approved a 3.25 percent increase for in-state students, and Coastal Carolina University OK'd a 3.03 percent hike. The Citadel approved a 2.4 percent increase. Clemson University has not announced how much it will increase tuition.

4g. Notes: No place like home for Moore
Dr. John Moore has lived in Atlanta for 40 years as of the end of this month, but he still thinks of Ashland as home. Moore, 65, competed in football, track and field and tennis at Ashland, best known as a guard and linebacker on the Tomcats' district championship football teams in 1965 and 1966. He went on to letter at The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, in football and track and field and will be enshrined as an honorary member in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame's Class of 2015 in September. He played fullback and tight end for the Bulldogs and also threw the discus. "I was surprised, honored and surprised," Moore said of receiving that honor. Moore then achieved distinction as a cardiothoracic surgeon - treating the organs of the chest, most specifically the heart, lungs and esophagus, he said. He is now the chief of thoracic surgery at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. According to a press release from The Citadel, Moore was rated among the top 1 percent of physicians in his profession by The Castle Connolly Committee, which featured him in a 2013 issue of U.S. News and World Report.

5c. Dutch Fork's Davis leads strong group of local DBs
As we continue to mark the days in the "countdown to kickoff" for the 2015 season, I want to begin releasing the Midlands' top players. Each year prior to releasing the Midlands Top 25, I go through position rankings and here is a look at the defensive backs. This is a strong group of defensive backs in the Midlands area. At the top of the list is Dutch Fork safety Stephen Davis, who I feel is an outside linebacker at the next level, but we are leaving him with the DBs for the rankings because he is used as a safety for the Foxes. No. 2 is Lexington's Nick Graves. The recent commit to The Citadel is one of the top defensive backs in the state and will be inside the SCVarsity.com Top 25 overall. The sleeper in this group is Blythewood sophomore Jayden Brunson at No. 3. This kid has potential to be a major Division I prospect and should be heavily recruited by the time he heads into his senior year.

5d. Williams continues strong summer as Post 1 defeats Georgetown
After a big junior season at Latta, Jackson Williams hasn't slowed down this summer. The Florence Post 1 catcher continued his hot hitting Friday with a home run and two RBI as Florence defeated Georgetown 5-3 in a rain-shortened game at Legion Field. The game was called with one out in the bottom of the fifth after rain and lightning moved through the Pee Dee. "I am starting to see the ball well and maturing in the game," Williams said. "It has been really coming to me lately." It actually started coming to Williams back in March during a preseason high school baseball tournament when he belted two homers in his first game. He followed that with his best season to date in helping Latta to the Class A state championship. The all-state selection led the Pee Dee with a .522 average and 39 RBI to go along with 10 doubles,. Williams entered Friday's game hitting .447 with three homers and 17 RBI for Post He and shortstop Ke'Shaun Samuel, the team's leading hitter, have provided a 1-2 punch in the middle of the order with Samuel hitting third and Williams fourth. "It gives us some security. They got to pitch to one of us. They can't pitch around us both," said Williams, who is drawing interest from several colleges including The Citadel, Francis Marion, Spartanburg Methodist and Florence-Darlington.

1. Lowcountry study: Plastics may decompose more quickly than believed
Plastic is all around us: grocery bags, water bottles and even cosmetics. Traditional thinking was that these products took years, even decades, to decompose but new research being done in Charleston says otherwise. Dr. John Weinstein is a professor and Department Head of Biology at The Citadel. He spends a lot of his time in the lab. "We were first interested in characterizing the type of plastic debris in Charleston Harbor and we completed that study," Weinstein said. "So we also conducted a study looking at the degradation of these larger plastic items into microplastic particles."

2a. After Attacks, Town Considers Shark Fishing Ban
The shark attack on a girl about 100 yards from a pier has prompted this town to consider at least a temporary ban on shark fishing, a move already undertaken by several cities along the East Coast. Fishing piers can be a magnet for sharks even when people aren't looking to land them because live bait is in the water and the pilings from the structure itself offer refuge for fish. There are also fish guts and blood from caught and cleaned fish that are sometimes tossed back into the water. In North Carolina, it's legal to attract sharks by placing fish parts - also called chum - into a mesh laundry bag and hanging it off the side of a boat or pier, allowing the scent to attract sharks. But even without chum, virtually any structure in the water offers a place for fish to congregate, and that gives sharks a destination for hunting, said John Zardus, an associate professor of marine biology at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4. Tim Scott's positive lesson
Young people learn by example. And in the grand realm of elevating examples, it's hard to beat Tim Scott, who gave another inspiring lesson last week at the annual Palmetto Boys State meeting in Anderson. After all, Mr. Scott rose from humble circumstances and nearly dropping out of Stall High School to earning a degree from Baptist College (now Charleston Southern University), owning an insurance business and being elected to Charleston County Council, the S.C. House, the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate. One of his upward steps was participation in the 1982 Palmetto Boys State meeting at The Citadel. Recalling that enlightening experience, Mr. Scott told last week's audience: "This place, Palmetto Boys State, it develops leaders. In a week, you have so many ideas. You learn how to lead and how to work as a team."

5. Retailer: Foreign assets fit the rules
A report that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is hiding billions in international assets to avoid paying U.S. taxes was dismissed by the retailer Wednesday as misleading. Americans for Tax Fairness compiled the report - distributed by the United Food and Commercial Workers union and its affiliated group Making Change at Walmart - which alleges that Wal-Mart is hiding at least $76 billion in 78 subsidiaries established in countries where it has no retail stores. Wal-Mart, according to the report, has an "extensive web of tax-haven subsidiaries" and uses "exotic international tax avoidance strategies." Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillon, appearing earlier this year on an ethics panel at South Carolina military college The Citadel, noted that the company pays about 2 percent of all corporate federal taxes collected in the U.S. That percentage was confirmed by the company on Wednesday, and in addition to such taxes, the company said, it is paying more than $10 billion in payroll taxes and $3.3 billion in property taxes, state income taxes, franchise taxes and other state taxes.

6. Wade Hampton grad becomes javelin champ at The Citadel
Upon graduating from Wade Hampton High School and arriving at The Citadel, Capers Williamson made an interesting series of transitions. He went from quarterback, to wide receiver, to tight end, to javelin thrower. If you think that last one is straight out of the book of one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other, you're not alone. "If you'd have told me three years ago that I'd be throwing the javelin," Williamson said, "I'd have laughed at you." Williamson hasn't just been tossing it around aimlessly. He's thrown the javelin farther than anyone ever has at The Citadel. In fact, farther than anyone in the history of the Southern Conference.

7. Southeastern 7-on-7 Preview: Dutch Fork, S.C.
Dutch Fork High School has been one of the most successful programs in South Carolina during the past three seasons. The Silver Foxes have appeared in the last three Class 4A Division I state title games, winning in 2013 and losing to Gaffney in 2012 and Hillcrest in 2014. Even before all of the injuries the Silver Foxes were already tasked with replacing a very prolific quarterback. Tate Fant threw for 3,077 yards and 27 touchdowns with just seven interceptions in 2014. But Fant left the state championship game early in the second quarter with an apparent concussion. Dutch Fork managed just 38 yards in the second half, while Hillcrest scored 41 unanswered points. Junior Cole Douglas will take over the position in 2015 after starting on the junior varsity team each of the last two seasons. Knotts believes he has the family pedigree and the talent to be successful. "Cole is the son of Jack Douglas, who was probably the greatest quarterback in the history of The Citadel," Knotts said. "So he has the genes and he's had an outstanding spring and summer. He's a lefty and he's a little inconsistent throwing the ball right now, but he's a strong runner. How he develops will determine what kind of team we are as we could go either way offensively."

3. Hillary Clinton fights post-Obama apathy in bid to energize South Carolina blacks
She has mastered the art of affecting a folksy twang when speaking to Southern crowds and her husband once boasted that he was the first black president, but Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton has a long way to go to win over black voters crucial to victory in South Carolina's early primary. Mrs. Clinton, who on Wednesday will make her second visit to the Palmetto State, moved early and forcefully to shore up support of black voters, but that Democratic bloc has yet to coalesce behind her. That includes young blacks who say they have lost faith in politics after their experience with President Obama. Muhammad Rasheed, 30, let out a long sigh when asked about Mrs. Clinton. "I used to feel strongly about politics, but I'm not into it like I used to be," he said. "I really just don't believe in the government anymore." Mr. Rasheed, who graduated from The Citadel with a degree in political science and works for the Upward Bound program that helps prepare low-income high school students in Charleston for college, said he enthusiastically voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 and 2012.

1a. 25 years ago, The Citadel was 'America's team' at College World Series
They were "America's team, touched by Abner Doubleday himself. A real field of dreams," the LSU coach said. They were the "Crew Cut Kids from that unglamorous, unknown, underdog military school," the Miami Herald proclaimed. "The cutest little team in the NCAA tournament," one columnist opined. Twenty-five years ago, The Citadel Bulldogs took the college baseball world by storm. They rallied from the wreckage left by Hurricane Hugo to win 26 straight games, the Southern Conference tournament and a regional at powerhouse Miami to advance all the way to the College World Series. That was in 1990, and as the 2015 College World Series starts Saturday, The Citadel remains the only military school ever to make it to Omaha. The Bulldogs' legendary coach, Chal Port died in 2011, but the memory of that season burns bright for those who played on and covered that team.

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry visited South Carolina Monday in hopes of courting voters for his presidential campaign. Perry, the latest candidate to visit the Palmetto State, first stopped at the S.C. Military Museum in Columbia and then Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant. He said he plans to spend a lot of time in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the site of the first three primaries. "Commit some time to South Carolina and South Carolina will commit to you," Perry said. Citadel political science professor DuBose Kapeluck says he isn't surprised to see Rick Perry or other candidates continue to make trips to Charleston or other parts of the state.

2b. The Babe Ruth of Congress
Cedric Richmond, a House Democrat who represents New Orleans, is the Babe Ruth of the Congressional Baseball Game. On Thursday night, members of Congress will come together for the annual game, which we realized offered a chance to evaluate those members' athletic prowess. A political analyst in Washington, Nathaniel Rakich, has maintained a spreadsheet of the congressional games played since 2009 - and has taken the extra step of comparing the players' statistics with the statistics of major league players. The best performer from the Republican side has been Gresham Barrett, who used to represent western South Carolina. Mr. Barrett, a catcher, lettered in baseball at The Citadel and had three hits in five plate appearances in congressional games - making him about equivalent to one of Babe Ruth's great-but-not-greatest seasons, 1923. The problem is that Mr. Barrett, who is now the stewardship director at NewSpring Church in Anderson, S.C., hasn't played since 2010.

2e. American Progressives are Bismarck's Grandchildren
American "progressives" portray themselves as "forward-looking," advocates of a higher and better freedom than the traditional American conception of liberty as freedom from government coercion and control. In fact, they are the intellectual great-grandchildren of the "reactionary" nineteenth century Imperial German "Iron Chancellor," Otto von Bismarck. A recent example of the progressive's retrogressive notion of the meaning of freedom was given by Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation magazine, in her weekly Washington Post column (June 9, 2015). Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina

4a. Jeb Bush's Southern Puppet Master
Fresh from drills and inspections at an elite Southern military school, Brett Doster found his start in politics as a baggage handler and driver. Riding shotgun alongside Doster? One Jeb Bush. After handling email past 1 a.m. and a morning run around his palmetto palm-studded fortress of an alma mater - The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina - Doster knocks back orange juice as we talk. "No better way for an old cadet to start his day in Charleston," he says. "These days, I seem to live off of coffee and water alone." Steely-eyed yet soft-spoken with an easy chuckle, his sandy temples are graying, hairline receding. "Probably teetotaling most of the time," he calls himself a "reformed Presbyterian." Here in Charleston, he has invested long days courting support. Which means the whole family is married to the campaign - including his Salvadorian wife, who home--chools two of their three young daughters. "We are kind of political vagabonds," Doster says.

Samford head soccer coach Todd Yelton is nationally-renowned for perennially facing the toughest non-conference schedules in the country. For example, the Bulldogs played No. 3 Virginia, No. 14 South Carolina and No. 18 Auburn just last season alone. This year, Samford's Yelton might have outdone himself as he put together a 2015 slate that includes road matches at Baylor and Auburn, as well as home contests against Duke, Georgia, Wake Forest, Memphis, Boise State and South Alabama. The Bulldogs will play a school-record 12 highly-anticipated home matches this season. This season, Samford's road trip to Kennesaw State will be its final test before opening SoCon play on Sept. 25 against league-rival Furman. The Bulldogs will open their conference slate with back-to-back home matches against Furman and Wofford before traveling to both The Citadel and Mercer on the ensuing weekend.

1. Charleston's tourism plan shared with business audience
Charleston had about 2,550 hotel rooms 20 years ago. By 2013, that number had increased to about 3,600. The city is now looking at another 1,500 guest rooms in the development pipeline. Those numbers not only reflect the thriving local hospitality industry, they also underscore why the city needed to update its tourism management strategy for the first time in 17 years, supporters of the newly adopted plan told the business community Wednesday. The tricky task of balancing a growing number of visitors to the peninsula with the everyday needs of residents who live and work on that landlocked space was the topic of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce's latest "Business in Your Backyard" event. It was held Wednesday at the Holiday Alumni Center for The Citadel.

Some of the highest-paying college majors are in engineering fields and as a college major choice, engineering beat out almost everything else in 2014. That's according to Forbes, CNN Money and Business Insider. The economic modeling group providing the Forbes data also reports that 25 percent of the engineering workforce is aged 55 and older, increasing the need for new engineers. Recent graduates from The Citadel School of Engineering are seeing the rewards of their dedication to the expanding industry through exciting new jobs in civilian and military sectors where the need for top talent is growing. "The (military) service does fascinating research with the latest technology out there," said Air Force Chief Scientist Mica Endsley in a recent Air Force Times article. "We need more people who really understand science and engineering to keep us moving along the tracks."

The media has been full of stories recently about the new sensitivity on college and university campuses concerning the avoidance in courses or assignments of the use of "trigger words" or phrases that may have a "hurtful" affect on students when thoughtlessly used in the teaching environment. Student and other groups on campuses have insisted that professors provide advanced warning when a particular subject or words connected with it are likely to be discussed in the classroom so any student participants who might be offended or traumatized by the use of such words or subjects cannot attend.

The first time that U.S. Sen. Tim Scott was at Palmetto Boys State, he was a nervous high school student. It was 1982 and he was learning how to excel in class, rather than drift along and fail. "I think I may be the only United States senator who failed civics in high school," Scott said. "I did not have the passion and curiosity for success. I was drifting. You never drift towards anything." Along the way, adults who cared stepped in, he said. He was mentored by John Moniz, the owner of a Chick-fil-A in North Charleston, where Scott grew up. And by the time he was 16 years old, Scott's grades were improving, and he was able to attend Palmetto Boys State, then held at The Citadel, in Charleston.

7b. Picking up the pace: 30-second shot clock could reinvent men's college basketball
Men's college basketball teams in the state of South Carolina don't naturally hurry down the hardwood. In the 2014-15 season, South Carolina averaged 64.8 possessions per game, while Clemson logged 62.6 possessions, College of Charleston 61.8 and The Citadel 60.1. All four figures lagged in the bottom half of Division I programs. Their female counterparts get more scoring opportunities - many more. To little surprise, South Carolina's Final Four squad made the most of 68.3 possessions per game. Perhaps more curiously, Clemson and College of Charleston, two women's teams averaging a 7-23 record, were not as efficient but even faster than the Gamecocks, nearing closer to 70 possessions a night.

But when it comes to nonconference strength of schedule, nobody in the SEC will have a tougher road in 2015 than South Carolina - at least based on last year's opponents' records, as calculated by Saturday Down South. That could make for an especially challenging season for the Gamecocks, particularly since the over/under on their season win total has been set at seven by Vegas oddsmakers. At first glance, South Carolina's nonconference schedule - which features North Carolina, UCF, The Citadel and Clemson - doesn't look overly daunting, but consider that those teams had a combined win-loss record of 30-21 last year, and three of the four played in bowl games.

1. The Citadel responds to recent hazing allegations with 'zero tolerance'
Inside the gates of The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, sits a large, car-sized golden ring, a fixture that represents the honor and tradition rooted in the institution. Just beyond that ring lies the campus where 85 allegations of misconduct emerged in February. The Commandant of Cadets at The Citadel, an institution that has previously made headlines for hazing complaints and lawsuits, issued the first all-encompassing order in school history for cadets to report cases of misconduct within 24 hours. Captain Eugene "Geno" Paluso, who serves as the Commandant of Cadets and holds the responsibility of commanding and overseeing the Corps, summoned all freshman cadets to a meeting in February. He announced an order to report instances of misconduct after hearing rumors of a hazing incident.

3. Orangeburg native gets leadership role at Joint Base Charleston
"Yes! That's exactly where I wanted to go," 7-year-old Tessa exclaimed as she threw her hands in the air. Her father, Lt. Col. Scovill W. Currin Jr. of the U.S. Air Force, had just revealed the news to his family during dinner that they were relocating to Charleston, S.C. An Orangeburg native, Currin has been offered the command of the 437th Operations Group at Joint Base Charleston. "I'm really excited to come back," Currin said. "I was ecstatic. This was really neat. For an Air Force pilot, it's the ultimate job." Currin grew up in Orangeburg and graduated from Orangeburg Preparatory School in 1993. Originally having aspirations of becoming a college professor, Currin was an English major at The Citadel in Charleston. He recalls watching several airplanes fly over The Citadel, wondering what it would feel like to be a pilot some day.

4. New cadet prepares for life at The Citadel
Cameron Lambert is counting down the days until he's labeled a "knob." Shortened for doorknob, his impending nickname certainly seems to be lacking an endearing connotation. Though if you're familiar with the institution responsible for its origination - The Citadel - you may understand why Lambert isn't too upset with the byname. Lambert, a graduating senior from East Davidson High School, was accepted to the rigorous military school in Charleston, S.C., where he plans to study electrical engineering. A quick, shear haircut is all that's left to solidify his cadet status before Lambert leverages a summer program offered by The Citadel that kicks off his undergraduate career later this month. His new haircut is effectively how the "knob" title came about. Upperclassmen say the new cadets resemble doorknobs.

It was a simple message and one that was valid for any high school in any community celebrating graduation activities: Remember where you came from and remember who you came with. Peyton Hite, 18, said Thursday night he would remember the good times he had with his Ninety Six High School classmates, their academic and athletic achievements and the roughly 3,000 hours the senior class accumulated serving nonprofit organizations in the Greenwood County area. Rod Johnson, 18, looked forward to leaving June 14 for The Citadel in Charleston, where he will play football. "I'm a little nervous because of what I have been told about the school," Johnson said. "In the end, I need to go and take care of business down there."

7. Americans See Big Corruption In Big Business
A recently released report on the degree of confidence that Americans have in the country's leading political and economic institutions showed that few of these institutions are held in high regard by the public. The survey was conducted by NORC, a respected research organization at the University of Chicago. It was found that only 11 percent of those asked expressed significant confidence in the institution of the presidency of the United States. About 23 percent of the citizenry expressed positive confidence in the Supreme Court. But, seemingly, no one has confidence in the United States Congress. Only 7 percent of Democrats and 5 percent of Republicans expressed any great deal of confidence in the legislative branch of the Federal government. 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).

A pair of prominent Cave Spring athletes made their intentions known to continue their play at the college level during a recent ceremony in the school's auditorium. It continued a banner season for Cave Spring senior athletes. Cave Spring basketball standout Cager Hicks indicated he will be a walk-on at The Citadel in Charleston, SC where he hopes to join the program of first-year Bulldogs' head coach Duggar Baucom. Seemingly the perfect fit for the run-and-gun style of Baucom's programs while at VMI, Hicks was a floor leader in the up-tempo style of Cave Spring head coach Jacob Gruse. Cave Spring reached the regional semifinals in 2015. "I visited VMI while Coach Baucom was there, and loved the fast-paced style he uses," Hicks noted. "When he moved to The Citadel I decided to pursue their offer for a walk-on spot. It took about two weeks to get everything in place and was a cool process. I'm very excited about the opportunity."

8b. Military children learn football from NFL receiver Roberts
Nicholas Burd dreams of making big plays, dodging would-be tacklers and spending Sunday afternoons on the field with NFL players. So, naturally, it was a big weekend for the square-shouldered 14-year-old: He got to do all the above. Nicholas and about 135 other military children hit the gridiron Saturday and Sunday for a football camp with Washington Redskins receiver Andre Roberts. The free camp, held at Oceana Naval Air Station, focused on football fundamentals and the importance of staying active. "Just to be on the same field as him is really special," Nicholas, a Dallas Cowboys fan, said Sunday during a break from the action. Roberts, a sixth-year pro out of The Citadel, grew up in an Army household and said he feels strong ties to military families. "That's why I do this. I used to be in their position," he said, recalling moving around the country and playing on sports fields at Fort Jackson in Columbia, S.C.

After 22 seasons as the head coach of the Clemson baseball team, Jack Leggett will not return to the Tigers for the 2016 seasons Athletic Director Dan Radakovich announced on Thursday morning. Leggett has solidified himself as one of the best head coaches of the last few decades by winning 955 games in his time at Clemson and helping the team advance to the College World Series 6 times. But the coach had come under fire the last few seasons having been unable to advance the team past the NCAA Regionals since 2010. Radakovich said the search for Leggett's replacement will begin immediately. One name almost certain to come up will be College of Charleston head coach Monte Lee. Another name that has been mentioned is Louisville head coach, and The Citadel alum, Dan McDonnell.

1b. Easy Ways to Get Exercise while Running Your Business
Just on the radar! Sorry we missed sharing this article from March... It's no surprise that exercise helps reduce stress and prevent disease that ranges from the common cold to heart disease, diabetes and cancer. But exercise isn't just good for your body-it's good for your business. "A bevy of scientific research supports the fact that more active employees have fewer sick days, are more productive while at work and are generally less likely to work for a competitor," says Dr. Daniel Bornstein, a professor in the Department of Health, Exercise and Sport Science at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. (Before pursuing a career in academia, Bornstein owned two small businesses: a physical therapy clinic/sports performance center and a health and fitness consulting business.) Many small business owners say they're too busy to exercise, but finding ways to incorporate short bouts of physical activity into a hectic day is the key, Bornstein says. Here, he offers advice on how small business owners can work exercise into their days.

The conservative politician believes the current deal would allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon in the future. Writing on Facebook, he argued that sanctions against Iran should not be lifted until Congress agrees. Perry told Bloomberg News that in an ideal world he would like to see a two-state solution to tensions between Israel and Palestinians but that he does not think that is realistic now. He has expressed strong support of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

8. Aggies call on Hartwell to take over athletic program
As a native of southern Alabama who has spent the majority of his 50 years living in "the Heart of Dixie" and places like South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi, John Hartwell didn't know much about the state of Utah until December 2013. That's when the then-athletic director at Troy University, his wife, Heather, and their two young daughters accommodated the Trojans' basketball team to Logan for the annual Gossner Foods Classic. Hoping to see some snow for the holidays, the Hartwells were disappointed to find there wasn't any white stuff in Cache Valley when they arrived and even found Logan Canyon to be virtually bare all the way up to Beaver Mountain Ski Area. Hartwell comes to Logan after three years as the athletic director at Troy, located about three hours northeast of his hometown of Mobile, Alabama. A former high school teammate of North Carolina State head coach Mark Gottfried, the 6-foot-7 Hartwell played basketball at The Citadel in South Carolina before graduating in 1987. A self-proclaimed "recovering CPA," Hartwell spent four years working for Ernst & Young before returning to The Citadel to serve as his alma mater's director of internal audit. He then labored for four years as the CFO of a beverage distributor before being encouraged by former Bulldogs basketball coach Les Robinson to get into athletics administration.

3. Keynesian Medicines are Not a Cure for China's Ills
Keynesians never seem to learn. Every time an economy slows down or reverses gears and "goes negative," in terms of growth and employment, their only answer is a call for "aggregate demand" stimulus and more government spending manipulation. An example of this is a recent article by Washington Post columnist, Robert Samuelson raising the question, "China's Coming Crash?" (May 24, 2015). Samuelson summarizes the economic data behind the apparent economic slowdown in the Chinese economy. Gross Domestic Product growth in China has decreased from its sizzling annual rates of 10 percent to seven percent or less. The Chinese housing market has seen significant price declines. And government debt at local levels has exploded in recent years from six percent of GDP less than ten years ago to more than 33 percent by 2013, putting a drag on government spending. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

An Air Force pilot missing for 45 years finally received military honors Sunday. Officials believe Capt. Glenn R. Cook was flying over Vietnam when his plane was shot down. Cook's sister, Jan Bradley, told Channel 9 her parents held on to hope their son would return home one day and never wanted to have a memorial service. Once they died, she felt it was time to honor her brother for his service, even though the military never recovered his remains. "I think this is a longtime overdue, I need to honor him for his sacrifice," Bradley said. She said her brother could not wait to go to The Citadel in Charleston after graduating from Garinger High at 17 years old. "I think he was born to be military, he always kept his shoes shined and clothes lined up," Bradley added.

In the world of coaching, it's a rarity to be able to say you're on a team that you grew up rooting for, and one that is near and dear to your heart. Although not as ballyhooed as an offensive or defensive coordinator is, a special teams coach is just as important, as the game of field position can easily be the difference in a win, loss or tie. Such is the tale of Steelers' special teams boss, Danny Smith, a Pittsburgh native who played his high school football at Pittsburgh Central Catholic. After playing defensive back at Edinboro State from 1971-75, he took a graduate assistant position here as well up until 1977. Then, as fate would have it, his magical coaching carousel brought him back to a familiar place where he started, at Central Catholic. At PCC in 1977, Smith was one of two assistants who helped develop and mold Parade All-American quarterback Dan Marino, who had basically every major college in the country after him. He owned a rocket for a right arm, and Smith helped mold the youngster, who as we all know now resides in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Following that were Clemson, The College of William & Mary, Georgia Tech and The Citadel.
