1b. Huge Foundation establishes Mohr/Huge Scholarship at The Citadel
The Harry and Reba Huge Foundation announced that beginning this fall it will provide a scholarship for full tuition to one cadet entering The Citadel from high school. The Dr. Lawrence C. Mohr/Huge Scholarship was created by Harry and Reba Huge to honor their long-time friend and Huge Foundation Board member Dr. Lawrence C. Mohr of Charleston. "I am both humbled and honored that this prestigious Harry and Reba Huge Foundation scholarship will bear my name," said Mohr. "I am especially delighted that the scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding cadet. The Citadel has a proven and profound history of developing principled leaders for our nation that is matched by very few colleges. To be associated with this great institution in such a special way is an honor beyond words."

5. Notable judo instructor, Citadel grad honored
The International Armed Services Judo and Jujitsu Academy (IASJJA) has honored Ronald Allan Charles, Ph.D, notable graduate of the Citadel's Class of 1965, for his outstanding warrior spirit maintaining the highest degree of martial arts competency. Charles is one of fewer than 150 of 55,000 Citadel graduates who have been designated notable for influencing events and positively impacting lives of others. He holds an eighth degree black belt in judo and sixth degree black belt in jujitsu and has travelled and taught judo worldwide for 54 years. He heads the Samurai Judo Association, the largest judo club in the United States, at Joint Base Charleston's Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek. After graduating from North Charleston High and then The Citadel, Charles served in the U.S. Army in Germany. Leaving the Army in 1968, he backpacked to Japan to study judo at the prestigious Kodokan Judo Institute, earning his first black belt in 1969. He studied under Kotani Sensei, 10th degree black belt, a direct student of the founder of judo, Dr. Jigoro Kano. Charles then began a teaching career that has included teaching judo during his travels to 100 countries.

6. SEC honors past leadership
It's interesting to look back on 75 years of an organization's history, but having 75 years of history in one room at one time is astonishing. That's just what happened July 23, at Santee Electric Cooperative (SEC) headquarters in Kingstree. All six of the organization's leaders or a family representative came together to celebrate the organization's beginning and pay special tribute to Walter E. Blackwell. Keels, set to retire July 31, made it his personal mission to research Blackwell and have his picture added to the organization's wall of history alongside the other cooperative's five leaders. Blackwell was hired as Project Superintendent in early 1940. With a degree in physics from The Citadel and another in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech. Blackwell arrived in Kingstree with not much more than an executive order and a map, Keels said. "He was dedicated, a hard worker and the strongest language he ever uses was the saying, 'I'll be John Brown,'" Professor Johnny Evans said of Blackwell. The two men worked at the Citadel together. "Dad's greatest accomplishment was his dedication to Jesus Christ," Ted Blackwell said. He added that he remembered his father being a very hard worker because of the example his parents set for him. He also quoted 2 Timothy 4:7-8 as it is written on his father's tombstone... "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day - and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for this appearing."

7. Former James Island charter school principal to lead Bridges Prep
Bridges Preparatory School has tapped the former principal of a Charleston area charter school as its new interim head of school. Robert Bohnstengel, a teacher and principal with 40 years of experience, started work Monday after the school's board of directors approved his hiring in an emergency session July 24. Bohnstengel replaces Benjamin Rollins. Rollins' contract was voided by the board of directors over "discrepancies and significant omissions on his resume," the school announced July 10. He had been on the job 10 days. Bohnstengel's contract with Bridges will run through Dec. 31, and a search for a permanent head of school will start in the fall. Bohnstengel earned a bachelor's degree from the University of South Carolina, a master's degree and an educational specialist degree from The Citadel, and a doctorate in education administration from USC, the release said. He began his teaching career with the Jasper County School District in the mid-1970s.

8. Letter: 'Thank you, Charleston - I'm home'
As my tour as commanding officer of Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic comes to an end, I am grateful for the pleasure of serving in the Lowcountry, commanding one of the Navy's premier information-dominance organizations, comprised of the finest professionals I have ever known. I am truly blessed. Since my arrival at SSC Atlantic in August of 2013, you have welcomed me. You made me feel as if Charleston was home. Charleston's unique Navy heritage goes back to 1890, when the foundation for a naval shipyard in North Charleston was laid. The partnerships that exist today continue to grow stronger from the roots we planted over 125 years ago. They include what is now Joint Base Charleston and its military units, local city, state and federal government personnel, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, The Citadel, area school districts, area colleges and universities and local industry. Like an aspen grove, we grow as one.

9. Coaches complaining about Notre Dame's schedule should look at their own
A bunch of college football coaches are complaining about Notre Dame at the moment. I don't know why. The Irish don't have a conference in football, as has been the case for eternity, and this is suddenly a serious problem now that there's a College Football Playoff. Notre Dame doesn't have to play a 13th opponent in a conference championship, you see, which is an unfair advantage. Among the recent powers whose coaches have complained about Notre Dame, here are some regular-season opponents either from the last five years or on upcoming schedules, via FBSchedules.com. You'll spot a lot of FCS teams, former FCS teams and lower mid-majors. South Carolina: The Citadel

3. Former Carolina Forest, Charleston Southern golfer finds focus at The Citadel
It begins like most of his golf rounds. Grunting gently over stiff muscles, Anthony Caroso drives his tee ball into a fairway bunker, lays up short and then wedges it onto the green for a routine two-putt par. The second hole unfolds in similar fashion. He stripes it down the middle, another wedge and another two putts. He's even par so far on the round. It's at this point the former Carolina Forest standout discusses how a life-altering event shifted his focus from golf to family and career. "My junior year was difficult because that summer, my dad and I were playing golf and he had a stroke," Caroso said. "That really hurt me a lot, seeing my dad down."

1. Citadel football dealing with alcohol-related arrests
Little more than a month from its season opener, The Citadel's football program finds itself dealing with a series of alcohol-related arrests during the offseason. Three Citadel players have been arrested since Feb. 20, all on alcohol-related offenses. One player was arrested in February, another in March and the third on July 17. The military school said Monday that all three players remain on the team. Two of the players - junior linebacker Dondray Copeland and sophomore receiver Taylor Kimball - were suspended for spring practice and the spring game after their arrests. The third, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Sydney Martin, will be suspended for the season opener against Davidson on Sept. 5, a school spokesman said.

3. Greenvillians joined "punitive expedition" into Mexico to capture Pancho Villa
Pancho Villa was terrorizing America's southwest border in 1916. Company A of the First South Carolina Infantry, Greenvillians all, was sent to help stop him. A revolutionary hero in his native Chihuahua Province, where he had redistributed hacienda lands among the poor, Villa had invaded the United States because U.S. authorities had recognized his opponent, Carranza, as president of Mexico and had allowed his troops to ride American railroads to attack Villa and his guerrilla forces. The First Regiment was commanded by Colonel Edgeworth M. Blythe, a Greenville attorney who was a Citadel graduate (Class of 1891), and whose adjutant was Major (and former three-term mayor) G. Heyward Mahon. On June 18, 1916, the first battalion received orders to proceed to Camp Moore at Styx, South Carolina, not far from Columbia. The battalion, composed of companies from Greenville, Anderson, Pelzer, Pickens and Laurens, was commanded by Major Richard Watson. (Another Citadel graduate, he would serve as Greenville's mayor in the 1920s. His peach orchard was, about 70 years later, developed as Watson's Orchard). Greenville's long-revered Butler Guards became Company A of that battalion, commanded by Captain W. D. Workman. Another Citadel graduate, he was planning to open a military academy located in the former Chick Springs hotel. (His grandson would be Greenville mayor in the 1990s.)

1. Lawsuit challenges SC Heritage Act over monuments
It was shaping up to be a "celebration of togetherness," said Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams. The small western South Carolina city had raised more than $15,000 to remove segregation-era plaques - honoring the city's fallen soldiers in "White" and "Colored" columns - and replace them with panels listing the names together. Then, "the Heritage Act came along and threw a wrench into everything," Adams said. In the wake of the shooting, The Citadel asked lawmakers to let the college remove a Confederate naval jack from a campus chapel as a way to honor those who were killed at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Some Democratic lawmakers say The Citadel, other universities and local governments should be able to make their own decisions about the monuments and memorials, calling for changes to the Heritage Act.

Dr. Mick Fekula is bringing a wide range of experiences to his new role as USC Aiken's dean of the School of Business Administration, and he's delighted to be back. A professor at the university from 2004-09, Fekula spent the next six years as a professor at The Citadel. He enjoyed his stay at the military college, "but I love this university," he said. "There are great people here. It's a comfortable place to be, and I feel at peace. I'm here to support the university, to serve the students and the faculty." His extensive career is just that - extensive. He earned an MBA from the University of Wyoming, and a Ph.D in business administration.

During that period, he spent 11 years at the Air Force Academy as an instructor - the last three years as the coordinator of the character and ethics division. At The Citadel, Fekula taught in the classroom before establishing a Department of Leadership Studies program with an academic focus in conjunction with the existing military side.

4a. F. A. Hayek and Why Government Can't Manage Society, Part I
This year marks the seventieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War. On May 8th, Nazi Germany surrendered to the Allied Powers in Europe. 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. But what kind of world was it to be? Nazism and fascism had been militarily and ideologically pulverized in the conflict. No one wanted to goose-step to Hitler and Mussolini's grandiose dreams of a world-ruling master race or a war-worshipping aggressive nationalism to which innocent human beings were to be sacrificed. 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.

Summerville's new athletic director, Brion Rutherford, leaves his post as principal at Oakbrook Middle School to replace John McKissick, who retired in June after 63 years on the job. Rutherford earned his Masters in secondary education from The Citadel. "This opportunity really kind of came out of the blue," Rutherford said. "After hearing that Coach McKissick had finally retired I started to think that this would be a great way for me to combine all of the things that I am passionate about - helping students achieve their goals and athletics."

6a. RiverDogs honoring Mayor Riley at The Joe
When Charleston Mayor Joe Riley is able to break away from the business of running a city and catch a baseball game, he likes to sit away from the crowd, a little higher up in the stands so he can catch the evening breeze off the Ashley River. Riley, who graduated from The Citadel in 1964, began his political career serving in South Carolina's House of Representatives for six years. He won the mayor's seat in 1975 and has remained Charleston's mayor since. He has announced that he will not seek an 11th term and his run as the city's longest-tenured mayor will come to a close in early 2016. Riley and former Citadel president Claudius "Bud" Watts were driving forces behind bringing a new baseball facility to downtown Charleston in 1997, which has become known as "The Joe" around the Lowcountry. The city was in desperate need of a new, modern baseball facility in the 1990s. Both The Citadel and the minor league baseball teams had been sharing College Park, which first opened in 1939. "Mayor Riley was extremely instrumental in getting the ball park built," said Citadel baseball coach Fred Jordan. "He and president Watts worked tirelessly together to finish the project and give the city of Charleston this tremendous ballpark. He has always loved the game of baseball and has been a tremendous supporter of the game."

7a. A bridge to biking's transportation potential
Even Don Sparks was more than a little surprised by how many pedestrians he saw on the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge when it opened 10 years ago. They were there at all times of day and in all kinds of weather. Mr. Sparks, an advocate for bicycling, was one of the key people who pushed for more than a year to include a bike/pedestrian lane in plans for the bridge. Certainly it was not part of the S.C. Department of Transportation's vision. And it took a while even for, first, Mount Pleasant Mayor Cheryll Woods-Flowers and then Charleston Mayor Joe Riley to get on board. Both mayors ended up strong advocates of the bike/pedestrian lane, and their combined political muscle helped push it through. If people flock to cross the Cooper River by foot or on bike, imagine how many would use the Ashley River bike lane to commute to work or for recreation. For one thing, it's not nearly as long or steep as the Ravenel. It also would take cyclists very close to the hospital complex, the College of Charleston and The Citadel where they work or attend classes.

8a. Citadel coach Mike Houston: 'I don't expect us to finish 7th' in SoCon
A fifth-place finish last year and 16 returning starters were not enough to convince Southern Conference observers that Citadel football is ready for a big step up in coach Mike Houston's second season. The Bulldogs, 5-7 overall and 3-4 in the league last season, were picked to finish seventh in the eight-team league by both the SoCon coaches and media on Wednesday. Chattanooga was a near-unanimous pick to win a third straight league title. "Preseason polls don't matter," Houston said at the SoCon's season kickoff. "It's the postseason polls that matter. We finished above where we were picked last year, and I've never had a team that didn't. I sure don't expect us to finish there. We'll have our shot when we line up against all of them."

8b. Southern Conference determined to rebuild league's football brand
Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino gave his football coaches a pep talk Wednesday, reminding them that the league boasts the best playoff winning percentage (.612) and most national championships (eight) of any FCS league in the nation. "It's time we got back to that," Iamarino said during his media day speech. After surviving the realignment that roiled NCAA Division I athletics in recent years, the SoCon has turned its attention to rebuilding its football brand, one that once had the league known as "the SEC of Division I-AA." That label recalls the SoCon's glory years, when Appalachian State won three straight national titles from 2005-2007, Georgia Southern took championships in 1999 and 2000, and the league received multiple playoff bids in 13 of 16 seasons from 1998-2013. "We've got to represent and win games out of conference," said Huesman, whose team lost by 26-23 to Jacksonville State of the Ohio Valley Conference. "Furman's got to beat Coastal Carolina, The Citadel's got to beat Charleston Southern. We've got to start winning those games out of conference, and none of us have done that."

8d. Interview with Quayson Williams (Eastern Guilford HS/The Citadel) at East-West All-Stars Basketball Game
Interview with Quayson Williams, from Eastern Guilford High School and now enrolled at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina, for the fall semester of 2015. Quayson hit one long three-pointer and made some nice assists, but his shot was not falling like it did that night over at Northern Guilford, when he hit a shot falling out-of-bounds and flung the ball all the way across the court along the baseline and it went in to help give the Wildcats the victory over the Nighthawks, on that Friday night. Probably the "shot-of-the-year" for the Triad and Quayson hopes to be hitting some shots like that one and to be setting up some easy baskets for his Citadel Bulldog teammates, as he prepares to being his college basketball career in earnest this Fall. Even though his shots were not falling on Monday night, it was a good experience during his All-Stars stay and Quayson Williams all about that and more.

8e. H.S. Senior Spotlight: Rutherford's Jessica Rogers chasing record
Jessica Rogers has a lot to live up to. Her mother, Lori, played volleyball at Southwest Minnesota State, and her father, Dennis, starred for The College of New Jersey basketball team. Now the Rutherford senior is carving her own legacy and rewriting her school's record books. She's on pace to reach 1,000 kills in volleyball and 1,000 points in basketball. It's a combination that's never been done at Rutherford and even would surprise a pair of former college athletes. "Considering my dad is great at basketball and that my mom taught me volleyball, if I'd be able to get both of those achievements, I feel like I could impress both of them," Rogers said. "And that's all I want to do." Rogers hasn't decided what sport to play in college. She said her options likely are better for volleyball as she's drawn interest from Division I programs such as The Citadel and Charleston Southern.

3. New NCAA cash 'a big deal' for College of Charleston, Citadel and Charleston Southern
The NCAA announced Monday that it will distribute $18.9 million to its nearly 350 Division I schools to help them fund new cost-of-attendance scholarships and additional meals allowed by new rules. That amounts to about $55,000 per school, a drop in the bucket for the rich athletic departments at "Power Five" schools such as Clemson and South Carolina. But for FCS schools such as The Citadel and Charleston Southern, and for non-football D-I schools such as College of Charleston, the extra bucks will come in handy. "Absolutely, it's a big deal," said Citadel athletic director Jim Senter, who runs a department with annual revenues of about $14 million, compared with $75 million at Clemson and $98 million at South Carolina. "Most schools spend $100,000 just on fruits, nuts and bagels to augment the nutritional needs of their athletes. That's something we don't do at The Citadel, so we can get halfway there with just this money alone."

5. For SoCon football media day, 5 questions to be answered
Compared with the zoo that is SEC media days and the ACC's well-attended event, the Southern Conference's annual football media day is a modest gathering of interested parties, like a bar band playing down the street from U2's eight-night stand at Madison Square Garden. Nevertheless, there are some important questions to ponder as league coaches and media gather Wednesday in Spartanburg. Among them: 1. How will The Citadel fare in Houston's second season? 2. Can anyone stop the Mocs? 3. Is the SoCon again a one-bid league? 4. Second time a charm for Hatch Attack? 5. Is the Ayers magic still alive at Wofford?

7. Switching in stitching: UTC players 'excited' about new Adidas uniforms
Two mannequins - one sporting an all-white jersey and one clad in navy blue tops and bottoms - ushered in the final piece of a new era for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football program Tuesday afternoon. The Mocs unveiled their new Adidas uniforms, which will be on full display in their season opener against nationally ranked Ohio Valley Conference favorite Jacksonville State on Sept. 5. The change from Russell Athletic, which already had taken place in every sport other than football and volleyball, is a big step up for the UTC athletic program. UTC is the fifth school in the Southern Conference to go with Adidas, joining The Citadel, Mercer, Western Carolina and Wofford. Furman, Samford and East Tennessee State - which begins league play in 2016 - wear Nike, while Virginia Military Institute is the lone Under Armour school.

4. Tastes Of The South: Melvin's Legendary Bar-B-Q Sauce
In 1939, in the backwoods of Holly Hill, South Carolina, "Big Joe" Bessinger traded a cow and a mule for a diner in the Lowcountry, from which he would serve South Carolina barbecue featuring his mustard-based barbecue sauce. He called his restaurant the Holly Hill Cafe. The originator of the now famous mustard-based sauce, Big Joe kept his recipe close to the vest, sharing it only with his children. Imbued with a love of barbecue, six of his eight sons went into the barbecue business, and the Bessinger name became forever associated with that iconic South Carolina barbecue style. One of those sons was named Melvin, who returned from World War II to help with the family barbecue business, before eventually attending The Citadel, and making the decision to open a barbecue restaurant of his own. He opened it down in Charleston in 1961, and called it Melvin's Piggie Park Drive-In. Since then, Melvin's has been a local institution, renowned as much for its barbecue as it is for its huge, donut-like onion rings and its juicy cheeseburgers, once named Best Cheeseburger in the country by Emeril Lagasse. Luckily for those who don't live in the Charleston area, Melvin's now bottles and sells their entire range of sauces, as well as the mix they use for those sinfully delicious onion rings. I like my barbecue with a kick, so my personal favorite is the Spicy Original, which gets its warm heat from hot habanero peppers.

5. Winthrop women's soccer to play 17-game regular season schedule in 2015
The Winthrop women's soccer team has released its 2015 schedule, which includes nine home matches at Eagle Field and two preseason exhibition tilts. After posting a 2014 record of 8-9-1, including 4-5-1 in the Big South Conference, the Eagles look to improve their conference standing under sixth-year head coach Spencer Smith. Winthrop advanced to the quarterfinals of the Big South Conference Tournament last season before losing to eventual champion High Point. "Once again we have a challenging non-conference schedule which should help us prepare for a demanding Big South Conference schedule," said Smith. "We are excited about the upcoming season but our players understand that in order for us to have a successful season we will need to be well prepared and be at our best each and every match." Winthrop begins that preparation with a pair of preseason exhibition matches against Jacksonville (Aug. 11) and USC-Upstate (Aug. 15). The regular season begins Aug. 23 on the road against non-conference foe Western Carolina; that begins a string of seven consecutive non-conference games. The Eagles will face Francis Marion in the home opener on Aug. 27. Winthrop then meets Charlotte, Georgia Southern, South Carolina State, East Tennessee State, and The Citadel before jumping into conference action.

1a. Heritage Act isn't likely to go the way of the Confederate flag
Earlier this month, as South Carolina lawmakers debated removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds in the wake of the killings of nine people at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church, most took care not to muddy the waters by tackling the larger issue of the state's Heritage Act. The act, passed in 2000 as part of the compromise that moved the Confederate flag from the Statehouse dome, was meant to protect state memorials, road names and other historical tributes. But some say the act unfairly ties the hands of cities, counties and state institutions such as The Citadel, which still flies the Confederate naval jack banner from the rafters of its Summerall Chapel. As the Legislature debated removing a similar banner from the Statehouse grounds, The Citadel's Board of Visitors voted 9-3 to remove the naval jack, saying the move would promote "unity on our campus, in our community and across our state."

1b. House speaker: Tillman Hall name not up for debate
South Carolina House Speaker Jay Lucas dealt a blow to those in South Carolina who were pushing to rename other Confederate monuments, buildings or memorials following the state's historic action to remove the Confederate battle flag from the Statehouse grounds last week. Lucas said he would not support House debate of specific public monuments, memorials, state buildings, road names or any other historical markers. "The General Assembly, the House in particular, made it abundantly clear during the debate of the confederate flag that the only issue they were willing to discuss was the placement of the battle flag on the north lawn of the State House," Lucas said. "We reached a swift resolution last week and in doing so put an end to this discussion. Debate over this issue will not be expanded or entertained throughout the remainder of my time as Speaker." That would delay movements some have pursued at Clemson University to rename Tillman Hall, the central building on campus that's named after Benjamin Tillman, one of the university's founders and S.C. governor who spoke virulently against blacks, advocated for lynch law, pushed Jim Crow laws and was charged but never indicted in the Hamburg Massacre, where six black men were killed by a white mob. It would also kill a request made by The Citadel's Board of Visitors, who in the days after the Charleston church shootings, asked the General Assembly for permission to remove a Confederate flag from a chapel on campus.

2b. New Aiken County superintendent discusses urgency, leadership
Dr. Sean Alford takes the reins as superintendent of Aiken County schools Aug. 1. Recently, he sat down with The Augusta Chronicle to talk about his career path, what he defines excellence to be and what the successful application of his core themes for the district might look like. The son of a minister, Al­ford spent his formative years in Connecticut and south Florida and came to South Carolina to attend The Citadel. He taught and coached in Wisconsin before making his way back to South Carolina. He and his wife, Stephanie, have six children. Q: What is something you took from The Citadel that you continue to utilize in your daily life? A: Urgency. You can have an urgent pace about your work without creating chaos. You can do that with a calm disposition... Leadership is to me the manifestation of helping those who work with you understand the purpose and the urgency of the work. So when you can ice that cake with having a good time, and it's enjoying and meaningful work, I think you've just got a perfect mixture there.

4b. Senator Paul Thurmond recalled a memory from July 1, 2003
Today marks one month since the greatest nation on earth was shaken from its sleeping slumber on the question of racism in America. As the news reported the murders of 9 AME church worshipers at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, the call to wake up everybody was heard around the world. In June of 1974 the Governor of the South Carolina invited the members of the Palmetto Boys State class of 1974 to have lunch at the governor's mansion with Governor and Mrs. John C. West. The invitation to have lunch with the governor was important to the present writer because of the role that Governor West had played in easing racial tension in South Carolina after the Orangeburg Massacre where three African-American students were shot and killed by state troopers after protest over a segregated bowling alley on February 8, 1968. The Palmetto Boys State members had just completed a week together at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. The American Legion program sent out an invitation to all former members this year. "Gentlemen, we cordially invite you to once again be a part of Palmetto Boys State as we celebrate our 75th anniversary through our first ever Alumni Parade. On Friday, June 12th we will march from Blanding Street down Main Street to the State house were seating will be provided for you," - The American Legion.

5c. Butler releases 2015 nonconference basketball schedule
This is another sign that Butler is proceeding as a major program in college basketball: It has exactly one game on an opponent's home court before Big East play, according to the nonconference schedule released Thursday. The Bulldogs' Dec. 2 visit to Cincinnati is the only one of 12 games that will not be played at home or on a neutral court. Even so, Butler's strength of schedule - a component in selection and seeding for the NCAA tournament - should not suffer much. There is potential for high scores in games Nov. 14 against The Citadel and Dec. 7 against VMI. The Citadel is coached by Duggar Baucom, whose VMI teams led the nation in scoring six times in an eight-year span.

3. How Natural Behavior Fuels Passion and Creativity in Work
In his book "Steve Jobs", Walter Isaacson reflects on a conversation between Jobs and Bob Dylan discussing creativity and composition. Dylan ponders his heyday of song writing saying "that doesn't happen anymore, I just can't write them that way anymore..." Then Bob pauses and says to Jobs in his raspy voice and a smirk, "But I still can sing them." Even Bob Dylan feels that he "grew up". I don't want to grow up and lose that sense of the creative, the passion, and the aspiration. Written by Joseph William "Bill" DeMarco, US Air Force, was a national security affairs fellow for 2007-2008 at the Hoover Institution. A native of San Carlos, CA, Bill graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, with a bachelor of science in Business Administration/Management. He was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1988. He is a command pilot with more than 2,700 flying hours.

5. An "Austrian" Economist's Advice For Greece And The EU
For months, now, the mass media and the financial markets have anxiously watched and waited to see the outcome of a war of words, accusations, and threats that have been fought between Greece and its Eurozone and European Union partners. Over several decades Greek governments accumulated a fiscally unmanageable debt and have been unwilling to introduce any meaningful, long-term economic and budgetary reforms to get the country's political-economic house in order. Greece's Euro and EU partners have warned that Greece may be formally or informally expelled from the common currency and, perhaps, from the economic union if the terms for a new series of loans based on domestic Greek reforms and some debt restructuring cannot be agreed upon. However, in the whirlwind of often sensational and uncertain daily new events, it is sometimes useful and even necessary to step back and try to take a look at the wider context of things in which those current events are occurring. 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.

6. Freedom Tour visits Charleston in push for veterans' needs
Ben Hyder gave seven and a half years of his life to the U.S. military. The 54-year-old former aircraft mechanic now spends his days and nights fighting mosquitoes from a tent where he lives in the woods of James Island. A career driving trucks after leaving the Air Force had to be put on hold, he said, due to worsening vision. Promising cataract surgery he sought through Veterans Affairs instead made his condition worse, he said. Money problems ultimately drove him to the tent he now calls home. He only wants one thing. "Just point me in the direction I need to go to either get disability or fix my blasted eye," he said. Hyder was one of roughly 350 people who attended Concerned Veterans for America's "Defend Freedom Tour" stop Saturday at the Citadel Alumni Center's Courvoisie Banquet Hall.

7. Madison native publishes memoir of rare time with Harper Lee
Last year, Madison native Marja Mills published a memoir of her rare time with Harper Lee, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird. This summer, amid the controversial release of a second novel by the now-eighty-nine-year-old Lee, we catch up with Mills. You now live in Chicago, where you worked as a journalist for the Chicago Tribune. What did you most like to write about when you were at the paper? One of my favorite stories was about a community of cloistered nuns in rural Missouri. Another was about The Citadel, the South Carolina military college. Both are places that have their own rhythms and routines and vocabulary. I've always loved to learn about other cultures and subcultures.

1a. Friends remember plane crash victims Joseph and Michael Johnson
Officials said Joe Johnson, 30, was piloting a small plane when it collided mid- air with an F-16 fighter jet on Tuesday. Salisbury said Joe's father Michael Johnson, 68, was a passenger in the small Cessna aircraft. Friends said Joe had recently become passionate about flying. "He had a desire to be a commercial pilot," his former Berkeley High School baseball coast Landy Cox said. Cox said Joe Johnson was also passionate about baseball. The former Berkeley High School standout went on to pitch in college and for a Braves minor league team. "He signed a Division I scholarship and without his injury, would've played Major League Baseball," Cox said. "He was a tremendous athlete. Everything he did, Joe was successful. What stands out the most was the smile from ear to ear. He enjoyed being around people. When you walked away from Joe, you had a warm feeling. His presence made you feel better." Cox recalled one of his favorite memories of Joe Johnson pitching a one-hit game against Summerville High School in 2003. Summerville went on to win the state championship, he said. Cox also said Joe's father Michael Johnson was always at the field to see his son. "He was always involved in Joe's life. Whatever Joe did, he was there supporting him. It didn't shock me at all they were together in this tragedy," Cox said.

1b. Deaths in F-16, Cessna crash ruled accidental
The victims of the military-civilian plane crash in S.C. on Tuesday died from blunt force and body trauma and their deaths were ruled accidental, the county coroner said Friday. Joseph Johnson, 30, and Michael Johnson, 68, of Moncks Corner, S.C., were killed when their Cessna 150 and a F-16 fighter jet collided about 25 miles north of Charleston.

The pilot of the F-16, Air Force Maj. Aaron Johnson, ejected safely. The National Transportation Safety Board is conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash, which has yet to be determined. Joseph Johnson, the pilot of the Cessna, was a former minor league baseball player and was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 2006. He had played baseball at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. and at Louisburg College in Louisburg, N.C.

1e. Life of A Legend: Mayor Joe Riley
The Lowcountry and the State of South Carolina is still dealing with a tragedy that is still difficult to understand. We are also preparing for a change in Charleston's leadership that will certainly dramatically change the way it operates. News 2's Carolyn Murray sat down with Mayor Joe Riley's childhood friend, his 3 sisters, and the mayor himself. Judge Michael Duffy, A U.S. Federal Judge appointed by President Bill Clinton, says Riley was right for Charleston. Mayor Joe Riley played basketball as a freshman, was on the track team, and passing pigskins for the Battling Bishops. "I remember it very well was a hot august day," Judge Michael Duffy said recalling his first sight of Joseph Patrick Riley on the gridiron. "It was 95 degrees and 95 humidity and Joe believe it or not was a guard on a football team." Duffy sized up Riley quickly saying "He couldn't have weighed more than 135, 140 pounds soaking wet." Riley wasn't perfect but possessed a quality that engendered feelings that he was someone who people could trust. The pair graduated high school, Riley in 1960 and Duffy a year later but, they didn't part ways. Duffy said Mayor Riley was one of the reasons he went to The Citadel. "He made it a lot easier for me when I went," Duffy said. "It was animal house without all the trappings."

1f. Cotton Museum leader stepping down after 17 years
Cotton is a staple in South Carolina and produced more than 500,000 bales in 2014, according to the National Cotton Council. And like the crop he takes care of, Janson Cox is a staple at the South Carolina Cotton Museum in Bishopville. Cox came to the museum in 1998 and has served as executive director for 17 years. But after all those years, he is stepping down. at the end of the year. Cox has turned the Cotton Museum into more than just a cash crop cornucopia; he's expanded it with interactive exhibits and a veterans museum. Cox's love affair with museum work started long before he got to Bishopville. He grew up volunteering at museums and that love continued when he was studying mathematics at The Citadel. He initially tried to get a job geo-mapping after college but said his employer didn't want to hire someone with glasses. He had an interview lined up with NASA next, but one phone call changed his plans. It was The Citadel asking if he could serve as acting director of The Citadel Memorial Museum. Cox took the job, recalling, "What else was I going to do?"

Col. (Ret.) Forest S. Rittgers Jr., commander of Fort Devens from 1975 to 1979, reminisces about his years at this Army installation in a program at Fort Devens Museum on Saturday, July 18, starting at 1 p.m. Here's an opportunity for the many people in this area who trained, worked or lived at Fort Devens during the tenure of this respected and well liked commander to meet him once again and hold something of a reunion at the museum.

Duty assignments took him to Fort Dix, New Jersey; Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Leavenworth, Kansas; Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania; and on two tours of duty in Germany. Starting in 1970 he commanded first an infantry battalion at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and then a brigade of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, before coming to Fort Devens.

2d. Declare independence from VA's failed health care system
It doesn't take this long to do the right thing! A year ago the nation learned what many already suspected: a culture of neglect and selfishness ran rampant within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Secret wait lists designed to help VA leadership save face and qualify for bonuses actually delayed veterans' treatment and left them to die. Ralph H. Johnson Medical Center here in Charleston was no exception - excessive wait times may have caused at least one death. So what does a VA Health version of progress look like? Wait times across the national system are actually worse - 50 percent longer nationally than last year. In Charleston there are still more than a thousand veterans waiting up to 30 days for an appointment, and hundreds waiting between two to three months, according to the latest VA data. The Defend Freedom Tour passed through Charleston Saturday. The tour helps to build the movement for much-needed rethinking of how we preserve and protect key military institutions like the VA. All were welcome at The Citadel Alumni Center for barbecue, music, and to take part in this fight.

3a. How the Nazi note which helped end WWII in Europe was nearly forgotten in a US safe
It is one of the most crucial documents from the most pivotal moment in the most terrible war. A treasonous telegram from No. 2 Nazi Hermann Goering to none other than the fuhrer himself. A message that, along with the advancing Allied troops, helped drive Adolf Hitler to swallow cyanide and shoot himself inside his underground Berlin bunker. Despite its influence on World War II, however, the memorandum ended up inside a South Carolina safe, nearly forgotten for more than a decade until a college student made it his senior thesis. That's when Bradin's son James - a future Army colonel - took the papers to his history professor at The Citadel, the military college, in Charleston. Dr. Robert Rieke, a German-speaker, examined the telegram and immediately realized its importance. He urged James Bradin to write his senior thesis on the documents.

3b. Drink Deep, Drink Largely
"Wrong Church. Wrong People. Wrong Day." Dylann Roof allegedly said he wanted to start a race war, and Emanuel A.M.E. Church responded. They refused to give in to temptation. So shall we all. Political activist groups descended on Charleston like ravens hunting carrion at the old meat market on Market St. These forces for division constantly instigate conflict, and race is their favorite wedge issue in America. Once the mayor of Charleston, Joseph Riley, opened the door for conversation about the Confederate flags and gun control during a highly emotional interview immediately following the shooting at Emanuel A.M.E. Church, the flood of backlash rushed throughout the country. These divisive agents thrive on stirring up fears among black Americans, often demonizing the Old South. Written by Paige Lewis who is an adjunct history professor and freelance writer in Charleston, S.C. She graduated Queens College in Charlotte, N.C. with a B.A. in history and drama, with a minor in political science. She earned her master's degree in American history from the University of Charleston and The Citadel joint graduate studies program.

4a. Clover's Miller named Hammer Strength All-American
Former Clover football standout Aaron Miller was one of two athletes from The Citadel named a Hammer Strength All-American on Thursday. "In Aaron's case, he brought a level of competitiveness every day that raised the output of those around him," said Donnell Boucher, The Citadel's head strength and conditioning coach. "It didn't matter if you were twice as fast or twice as strong; when you lined up next to Aaron, you knew your only choice was to find a way to take it to the next level. Otherwise, you were about to get beat." Miller was named the football team's offensive player of the year last season after ranking second in the Southern Conference with 1,080 rushing yards. His rushing total was the highest by a Bulldog since 1998 and ranked second in FCS among quarterbacks in 2014. The Clover native completed his career with 1,852 rushing yards and 24 rushing touchdowns in addition to 1,970 passing yards for 3,822 yards of total offense that ranks 11th in school history. Sarah Johnson, a rising senior sprinter on The Citadel's track team, was the other Bulldog chosen for the award. Hammer Strength All-Americans are selected on their personal qualities and achievements in the areas of work ethic, leadership, consistency and academic performance. The awards are presented by Hammer Strength, a performance brand of strength equipment, in partnership with the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association.

Well, a lot, obviously. The biggest impediment for Charlotte is a young defense that couldn't get FCS offenses off the field last season. It's scary to imagine what Marshall's offense could do to a defense that gave up 63 points to The Citadel a year ago.

1. Friends remember father, son killed in midair collision
Friends close to the father and son killed in Tuesday's plane crash over Berkeley County reflected on the lives of the former Atlanta braves draft pick and his father. Joe Johnson, 30, was pilot of the Cessna aircraft at the time of the collision. His former coaches say he was first a baseball star, and was often known as the kid with the golden arm. His father, Michael, was one of his T-ball coaches in Berkeley County and also worked as a longtime vocational teacher. "He was the type of guy, if I needed something put in, I would say, 'Hey, Mike, we have a problem. Mike, I've got a press box, need some wood done, or a roof.' 'No problem, Dewayne,' and they would come out and take care of it," Kitts said. Landy Cox coached Joe in high school. "Everything Joe got involved with, he's been successful," Cox said. "He plays baseball, he gets drafted. He had an opportunity to do some modeling, very successful with that." In 2012, Cosmopolitan magazine featured Joe as one of its "Bachelors to Watch." Late Wednesday afternoon, Citadel Head Baseball Coach Fred Jordan issued a statement about former cadet and student athlete Joe Johnson. "This is such a tragedy, and we are hurting for Joe's family," Jordan said in a statement. "Joe followed in his father's footsteps attending The Citadel and was a fine young man who was upbeat and fun to be around. On the mound, he had the ability to throw hard and continued to work toward his goal of being a professional pitcher, which he reached when he was drafted by the Atlanta Braves. Joe's impact on our program extended beyond his statistics, and we are deeply saddened by his passing." The younger Johnson was a member of the Citadel baseball team for the 2004 and 2005 seasons. After redshirting in 2004, he made one appearance for the Bulldogs in 2005. He transferred to Louisburg College and was drafted into the 13th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Atlanta Braves, Citadel spokesman Derek Satterfield said.

Players at the seventh annual Augusta Prep Summer Football Camp got a taste of college coaching this week.

6. Five offseason questions: Missouri Valley Conference
The Missouri Valley is among the top mid-major leagues, and with Wichita State leading the way that won't change in 2015-16. Let's answer five questions about the MVC. 5. Who is the sleeper? Indiana State. Elite guard play at the mid-major level makes a major difference. The Sycamores' Devonte Brown and Brenton Scott are awfully tough, with the 6-1 Scott averaging 11.4 points as a freshman while shooting 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Khristian Smith is another hard-playing veteran, and coach Greg Lansing also is high on 6-6 forward Matt Van Scyoc. A transfer from The Citadel, Van Scyoc put up numbers two seasons ago (14.3 points, 5.3 rebounds in 2013-14) and provides another option. Lansing has won at Notre Dame and Vanderbilt in the past few seasons, but hasn't reached the NCAA Tournament since 2011. This team has the depth and perimeter play to have shot this season.

2. A Declaration of Independence from Big Government

Many forms of personal liberty are under attack today, from economic regulations that hinder people from their peaceful pursuits of earning a living and improving the material conditions of life to an increasingly intrusive surveillance state that seems to follow every step we make and every breath we take. Equally disturbing is the extent to which too many Americans have become desensitized and indifferent to this growth in the size and scope of government. Around this Fourth of July time of the year, after the hotdogs and burgers have been grilled and eaten and the evening firework displays have been enjoyed, it is worth remembering the meaning and significance of this holiday.

4. A Thurmond of the next generation seeks a new legacy

What finally opened Paul Thurmond’s eyes and changed his heart was in the Gospel of Mark – the very New Testament passage that his state Senate colleague Clementa Pinckney and eight other members of Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church were studying the night they were gunned down in an apparent racist hate crime. Strom Thurmond was 73 years old when Paul, the youngest of his four children by his second wife, Nancy, was born in 1976. When Paul was only 6 weeks old, his father enrolled him for entrance in 1993 at the Citadel, the Charleston military college whose cadets are believed to have fired the first shots of the Civil War.

1. South Carolina Legislators Gird for Confederate Flag Debate (news roundup)

The South Carolina legislature is expected on Monday to take up the fate of the Confederate battle flag that flies on the State House grounds, responding to demands that it be removed after the June 17 massacre of nine people at Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston. “The South Carolina legislature doesn’t move rapidly on anything, so the fact that this has all come about is remarkable,” said Scott E. Buchanan, the executive director of the Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics. “I think we’ll look back on this in future years and just be astounded.”

2. South Carolina Lawmakers Return for Confederate Flag Debate

While it appears there is broad support in the South Carolina Legislature to bring down the Confederate flag, the depth of that support will get its first test this week as lawmakers return to Columbia to come up with a specific plan. The General Assembly returns Monday to discuss Gov. Nikki Haley's budget vetoes and what to do with the rebel flag that has flown over some part of the Statehouse for more than 50 years. But not all lawmakers support the idea without some reservation. There is talk about raising a flag that cadets at The Citadel fought under when the Civil War started that looks like the current South Carolina flag done in red instead of blue to replace the current Confederate flag.

3. What’s next? Moving forward after the Emanuel AME Church shooting

The mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church has illuminated long-standing racial differences and wounds, shining a light on obstacles that continue to divide South Carolina. Many blacks and whites cite the attack as more evidence of the injuries inflicted by slavery and its aftermath. They call for an end to indifference, pushing for public dialogue and racial reconciliation. Marcus Cox, a history professor at The Citadel, said blacks and whites are still too far apart on many critical issues. Lynchings and miscarriages of justice are generally relegated to the past, but police brutality, mass incarceration and poverty continue to threaten blacks disproportionately. “In order for us to have an ‘honest dialogue,’ Cox said, “those are the issues we have to get past.”

4. Isle Of Palms Bans Plastic Bags
At its June 23 council meeting, the Isle of Palms became the first city in South Carolina to ban the distribution of single-use plastic bags by retailers to consumers. Members of the Isle of Palms community expressed hope that this will be a first step toward protecting the wildlife that live in the marshes, ocean, ponds and streams of the island from the dangers of plastic. "Reducing our consumption of plastic bags just makes sense," Island resident Kathy Kent, who has been leading the Ban the Bag movement on the Isle of Palms, said. "It makes economic sense to protect tourism and property values-both tied to the health and beauty of our ocean and beaches. It makes sense to do what we can to protect not only marine life, including endangered species of sea turtles, but also our fishing economy. And now that we know from studies at the College of Charleston and The Citadel that plastic bits are being consumed by oysters and shrimp, it makes sense to stop poisoning our food. The plastics lobby's claims of the environmental and health benefits of plastic bags have been proven to be untrue or greatly exaggerated, and the move away from plastic bags is gaining momentum across the U.S. and the world. More and more municipalities are looking to ban plastic bags each week. Why? Because, although it isn't a cure-all, it's an easy way for us to cut down on the amount of plastic reaching our waterways. Harris Teeter has already made the switch away from plastic bags, and as you talk to people who wouldn't necessarily label themselves as conservationists, they are happy to go without plastic bags to make a positive impact on the health of our oceans."

2a. Citadel's President Lt. Gen. John Rosa to work three more years, then retire
Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa will continue to lead the state's military college until 2018 and then retire. The school's Board of Visitors on Tuesday announced that it has extended Rosa's contract until June 30, 2018. And it gave him a 14.5 percent salary increase. Last year, the board approved a two-year contract extension for Rosa, who has been leading the school since 2006. But it decided to extend the contract for an additional three years after just one year. If Rosa completes the contract, he will have served 12 years. That would make him the school's longest-serving president since Gen. Mark W. Clark. Clark previously served for 11 years from 1954 to 1965.

5. Rick Santorum supports Dylann Roof being charged as a terrorist
Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said he supports the federal government putting accused Emmanuel AME Church shooter Dylann Roof on trial as a terrorist but wouldn't weigh in on South Carolina's Confederate flag debate. Speaking at The Citadel on Tuesday, Santorum told reporters, "Mr. Roof was a lot of things - terrorist is one of them for sure. He's obviously a racist, he's a terrorist. He was using this violence for terroristic purposes." Santorum said he felt it would be appropriate if the federal government wanted to charge Roof with terrorism in addition to the nine state murder charges he now faces. Santorum avoided the question of whether he thought the Confederate flag is a racist emblem, saying the issue of it flying next to the Statehouse in Columbia is not a matter for a presidential candidate.

He will talk about how Fort Devens worked through some troubled years for the United States, after the fall of Saigon in 1975 at the close of the Vietnam War. It's also a chance for the many people in the area who trained, worked, or lived at Fort Devens during Col Rittgers' tenure to meet him again. Col. Rittgers served in Vietnam.

After serving at Fort Devens, Col. Rittgers became a senior army adviser to the New York Army National Guard. The colonel entered the Army in 1953 after graduating from The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina. Duty assignments took him to Fort Dix, New Jersey; Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Leavenworth, Kansas; Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania; and on two tours of duty in Germany. Starting in 1970 he commanded first an infantry battalion at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and then a brigade of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, before coming to Fort Devens.
