3. Great National Purposes Mean Less Freedom

What America needs, it is said, is a shared set of common values and goals that can provide a unifying sense of public purposes. This is the path back to a restored American greatness at home and abroad, proponents say. Such a view is often heard among both modern liberals on “the left” and conservatives on  right.” They may differ on the values to be shared and the public policy purposes people are to unify behind, but the emphasis on a higher collective calling is common to both.

5. Miami Herald’s Alvah Chapman helped fight crime in city

I found Alvah Chapman sincerely distraught at the plight of race relations in Overtown, Liberty City, and downtown Miami. His initiative succeeded, but understandably, still continues today. We lost Alvah a few years ago, but few in the media have had such an impact on Florida and indirectly politics as the former proud military man from the Citadel.

6. John Sias, CEO who led The Chronicle in era of transition, dies

John B. Sias, an Army paratrooper who came home from World War II and built a career as an energetic media executive, first as president of ABC and later as the only non-member of the de Young family to run Chronicle Publishing Co., has died.  When he graduated from Tam High, the war was still raging, so he enrolled at the Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, and then volunteered for the Army to train as a paratrooper. He was sent to Newfoundland to join a pilot rescue team. He jumped with sled dogs, in anticipation of participating in the invasion of Japan that never came.

For Citadel’s Dominique Allen, a long journey to starting QB

In his first college football game, Dominique Allen threw a touchdown pass. On the road. Against No. 1 Florida State.  Afterward, someone asked him how it felt, and Allen’s eyes filled with tears.  “It was the best feeling you could ever get,” Allen said that night. “It’s been a long road for me to get here, so it’s something I’ll never forget.”  Allen, a sophomore from Richmond Hill, Ga., has journeyed a little further down that road during The Citadel’s preseason practice. This week, the 6-1, 220-pounder was named the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback for their Sept. 5 season opener against Davidson.

1. Scott Walker: I'm tested enough for the world stage (news roundup)

Scott Walker will offer his foreign policy vision in a speech Friday mostly by contrasting it with what he terms a "retreat" from the world stage by the Obama White House. The speech at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, gives Walker, who has fairly limited foreign policy experience and has raised some eyebrows with prior comments, a chance to shore up any nagging doubts.

Scott Walker will be at The Citadel at midday to deliver what his campaign said is his “plan to reverse the failures of the Obama-Clinton foreign policy and restore American leadership in the world.”  The Citadel has become a favorite of Republicans seeking the White House.

Come out and connect with nature at Santee National Wildlife Refuge. Fall is a great time of year to bring the family or enjoy the solitude on one of the refuge’s hiking trails or the Wildlife Drive.

Medal of Honor Bowl may drop all-star format

With the Confederate battle flag no longer flying on Statehouse grounds in Columbia — and with the NCAA’s ban on events at “pre-determined sites” in South Carolina no longer in place — the Medal of Honor Bowl apparently is rethinking its all-star game format.  Bowl officials are set to hold a news conference at 1 p.m. Thursday to discuss the game’s future, and sources say a change to a conventional college bowl game is under consideration. Medal of Honor Bowl chairman Tommy McQueeney said he could not speak on the record about the change.

2. GOP presidential candidate Walker talks tough on China while campaigning in Iowa (news roundup)

GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker renewed his call Wednesday for President Barack Obama to cancel an official state visit with the president of China, saying the move would not hurt trade with states like Iowa, where he was spending the day campaigning, or Wisconsin where he is governor. On Friday, Walker was to outline his foreign policy positions at a speech at The Citadel in South Carolina. Walker last week released his health care plan in Minneapolis. He has promised to detail other policy initiatives in the coming weeks.

2.3 What if Trump becomes a real presidential candidate?

When Donald Trump kicked off his Republican presidential campaign, he was officially a candidate, but he wasn’t a real candidate, at least not in every sense of the word. The New York developer had a skeleton staff, little support in the polls, no field offices, no organization in early nominating states, no endorsements, and no national campaign infrastructure. Along with Clovis, Trump yesterday announced another eye-catching hire for his South Carolina campaign: Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, and an unsuccessful challenger to Lindsey Graham last year.

The national buzz about Nikki Haley is back. The timing of Haley’s successful call to remove the Confederate flag from the S.C. State House – just as the 2016 presidential primary fight ramps up – has ratcheted up talk about the South Carolina governor’s vice presidential prospects. In any case,the positive national reviews of Haley’s handling of the Charleston church shooting and her subsequent call to remove the Confederate flag might not carry her to the 2016 ticket. “Is she still in the limelight one year from now?” asked Citadel political scientist Scott Buchanan. “I’m not so sure.”

Charleston County is holding a public meeting on at 6 p.m. Thursday at The Citadel Holliday Alumni Center on Hagood Avenue. The topic is the plan to convert a northbound lane on U.S. Highway 17 on the Ashley River bridge from car traffic to a dedicated bike/pedestrian lane.  Unfortunately, well-organized special interest groups are often best represented at such meetings, while the apathetic majority stays home. I encourage all who may be affected to attend and voice your opinions.

1.1 Former gang members remove tattoos to break from past

Russell Sobel, a professor at The Citadel who studies gangs, said that acceptance is a powerful lure and that the tattoos are a visible reflection of it.“Why people get those markings to begin with is important,” he said, noting that many young people join gangs for the sense of safety they provide in a violent environment. “It’s like putting an ADT security sign on your yard.It’s like saying your home is protected, and if you’re messing with me, you’re messing with more than just me.” Continuing the metaphor, Sobel said that the removal programs are most effective when gang members no longer feel the need to have that sign on their lawn.

Steep losses over the past week took about took an 8-percent bite out of the amount of your 401-k plan. But don’t worry in such cases slow and steady wins the race says well known Citadel Economic Professor Dr. Russell Sobel.  Sobel says when it comes to stock driven retirement plans it’s all about patience.  “The average investor right now should not panic and worry about the value of their retirement account, this is something they have put with. They are going to be rewarded in the longer rather than with a safer investment.”  Sobel says over the past few years there have been record increase in the stock market so it is important to keep the past few days of losses in perspective.

Five-star education a short drive away

Coral Academy of Science opened in Las Vegas in 2007, replicating the model of its Reno campus. The school since has grown to three campuses, with plans for further expansion and a growing waiting list of students. That has forced Noah Stevens, dean of students, to balance what he loves — working with children — with equally important administrative duties. What I love about my job is seeing so many of our students become successful in both their academics and extracurricular activities. It also has been great to see our seniors getting accepted to such amazing universities, such as Cornell, West Point and the Citadel.

1.1 Beyond Edinburgh into the castles and lochs of the Western Highlands

Yesterday the band took to the Western Highlands to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to tour some of Scotland’s most famous castles. The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo generously provided a bus for our use and the cadets enthusiastically chose the route which included Doune Castle, Kilchurn Castle and Inveraray. Once we scooped up our boxed lunches from the cafeteria, we boarded the buses at 9 a.m. and were on our way for a ten hour trip! Our first stop was Doune Castle, of Monty Python fame, a 14th century castle set amid the Stirlingshire countryside.

2. The Citadel welcomes the Class of 2019

Most of the members of the class of 2019 were born in 1997, the same year as the McCaughey septuplets. For them, Google has always existed. They expect Wi-Fi to be present. They are younger than the Nintendo Gameboy and the McDLT, and since they have been on the planet, hybrid vehicles have always been mass produced.  More than 675 of them reported in at The Citadel on Saturday, Aug. 15. The freshmen are from 34 states and 6 foreign countries.

Army Captain Kristen Griest and 1st Lieutenant Shaye Haver have become the first women to graduate from the Army’s elite Ranger school. They completed the 9-week rigorous training course in Fort Benning, Georgia along with 94 men.This folks is progress. We talk a lot about breaking the glass ceilings in business but in the military, women still make up less than 15 percent of our entire active duty military. I am a graduate of the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. While the Citadel was an all male institution when I was there, the school has successfully integrated women into the corps of cadets. This too is progress folks.

For Chris Singleton camp, state’s top coaches come together

For a one-day summer baseball camp, it might have been the most impressive coaching staff ever assembled.  In one cage, new Clemson coach Monte Lee made soft-toss throws to hitters. In the next cage, Charleston Southern coach Stuart Lake threw batting practice. And in the next, Citadel coach Fred Jordan and assistant David Beckley ran campers through fielding drills. Outside, new College of Charleston coach Matt Heath instructed pitchers. South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook dispensed advice, along with Gamecocks assistants Brian Buscher and Jerry Meyers.  The state’s top college coaches came together Sunday at East Coast Baseball Academy in West Ashley for one reason — to support Charleston Southern sophomore Chris Singleton, son of Emanuel AME shooting victim Sharonda Coleman-Singleton.

S.C. State graduate Mariel Cooper a quick fit for Citadel football

Mariel Cooper was in his first week at The Citadel this summer when tragedy struck. His 18-year-old brother was killed in a car accident back home in Sumter.  Cooper, who had transferred to The Citadel from South Carolina State, was in a new place with new teammates, new coaches and not many old friends. But his new friends stepped up quickly.  “I had a rough patch when I got here,” Cooper said. “But the guys made me feel like a brother right away. The coaches, the whole team, they were constantly checking on me, telling me they were there for me. They did a wonderful job lifting me up and helping me through that time, making me feel part of the team.”

1. The Pipers Behind the Gates (video)

Each night before the royal military tattoo begins on the spectacular Edinburgh Castle esplanade, some of the world’s most talented military pipe bands gather behind the castle gates to tune their bagpipes and to warm up – becoming one, massed pipe and drums band. The combination of the medieval castle perched atop a massive rock mountain, the haunting sounds of the bagpipes, and the spectacular views of the North Sea and the city create a magnificent spectacle that is only to be enjoyed by those fortunate enough to be behind the gates for sound check. And on this night, the activities were framed by a rainbow.

2. Different times, different rules for initiations

Initiations and rites of passage are as old as mankind. They have been a part of life with fraternities and bands, football teams on every level, the U.S. military and institutions such as The Citadel, West Point and Annapolis. The problem has allows been with how quickly things can go wrong.  These are different days – and any initiation or rite of passage must hold true to standards of respect for others and their well-being. There are so many instances in which respect for people – and even life itself – is lacking that we cannot afford to do otherwise.

2.1 Don’t give up on board of regents concept

For decades, South Carolina’s public colleges and universities have lacked adequate statewide oversight and control. Unfortunately, as students at the College of Charleston and The Citadel arrive this week for the Fall semester, the situation will be no different.  Changing the state’s system of governance had some legislative support in this year’s session, but not enough to make it happen.  So the Commission on Higher Education will continue to provide a modicum of central authority and oversight — though not enough to be effective.

3. Agenda for a Freer and More Prosperous America

There is little that happens in society in general and the market economy in particular that most on the political “left” do not think needs more government intervention, regulation and redistribution to make “better.” One recent example of this is a lengthy “report” primarily prepared by Nobel Prize-winning economist, Joseph E. Stiglitz, for the Roosevelt Institute. Released in June 2015, Stiglitz and his co-authors present an agenda for Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy: An Agenda for Growth and Shared Prosperity.  (By Dr. Richard Ebeling is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.)

Donald Trump was again the center of attention at this week’s GOP debate. He was the target and deliverer of attacks. He insulted Rand Paul, Rosie O’Donnell, George W. Bush, and debate moderator Megyn Kelly in a two-hour span. And he leads in the polls across America.Yet where is his policy? We know he wants to build a wall to stop illegal immigration, impose tariffs on goods from China, destroy ISIS. But the lack of specifics doesn’t bode well for a strong platform, rhetorical fireworks aside.

The Citadel football team’s 2016 schedule was released Thursday. The Bulldogs’ 2016 season features five home games inside Johnson Hagood Stadium and concludes with a trip to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to face the North Carolina Tar Heels. “Our 2016 schedule is a competitive slate for us as a program that will appeal to our fans,” head coach Mike Houston said. “Having two Southern Conference games to start the season is unique, but after opening at Mercer I know we will have a tremendous crowd for our home opener against Furman. Our team will be tested right out of the gate with only one home game in September, but overall our home schedule should produce exciting matchups for our crowd. We are currently preparing for our 2015 season opener against Davidson and hope to have a great environment inside Johnson Hagood Stadium on Sept. 5.”

He had Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and a failing liver.  “I was in the process of dying,” Conroy says. His doctor told him he needed to adopt a more healthful lifestyle and enroll in a hospital-based alcohol treatment program. Conroy would have none of it.

Athletes have been using the practice of visualization for decades to ease anxiety. In fact, the exercise is becoming more formalized and practiced by entire teams.  But athletes aren’t the only ones who can use visualization, and various forms of it to deflect pressure and win their non-athletic game. “I see a ton of kids who are experiencing difficulties with chronic illness, trouble with academics or behavior difficulties. I employ polysensory guided imagery to help them deal with something coming up or to reduce their level of anxiety,” says Taylor, who is an associate professor of psychology at The Citadel.

You know, I was really enjoying my time in 1st Battalion, had made SSG, had a really good lieutenant, good young NCOs, good young Rangers, and Stan Fox was the 1SG mentoring me. 1SG Fox had a great way of teaching you; if you had a question he would not just give you the answer, he would tell you how to get the answer and then you would come back and tell him what the answer was. So it was really a great learning experience and not just about being a NCO, but about life.

Franklin Joyner ('00), Premier DUI Attorneys, Advanced Level Training on Hazard Lights in DUI Cases

Franklin Joyner of Cheraw, South Carolina recently received advanced level training, from the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, on hazard lights interfering with investigations on DUI Cases. Franklin received training about hazard lights causing Optokinetic Nystagmus during the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test and how to fight and win DUI Cases if the client's hazard lights are left on during the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test.  When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases. Countless attorneys handle DUI cases.  But, only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win DUI cases.

All too often news regarding The Citadel is due to some negative event or behavior. The positive is rarely covered.  I moved here 10 years ago and am not a Citadel graduate. However, I can tell you we all should be proud of the Citadel Band and how they represent our city.  I had the good fortune to attend the Edinburgh Tattoo recently. The Citadel’s was the only band invited from the U.S. to a program that features military bands from around the world, including Great Britain and China, just to name two. For college students to hold their own with virtual professional musicians was a sight to see.

Citadel fullback Evan McField making preseason impact

Two years ago, Evan McField brought a South Carolina State cap with him to the signing day ceremony at Goose Creek High School. The All-Lowcountry fullback was all set to sign with the Bulldogs from S.C. State.  But a last-minute phone call brought a signing-day surprise, a late scholarship offer from The Citadel. McField signed that day with The Citadel, and in preseason practice is beginning to make an impact with these Bulldogs.

Citadel’s Sam Frye is no small fry on the field

Sam Frye is a business major studying supply-chain management at The Citadel, working on how to refine the flow of goods and services and the movement and storage of raw materials.  “I like that stuff — it’s really interesting,” said Frye.  The subject would seem a natural fit, since the Frye family has provided a supply chain of college football linemen for years now, with Sam Frye — an All-Southern Conference lineman for the Bulldogs — their latest product.

The Citadel holds 1st preseason scrimmage

The Citadel football team held its first scrimmage of preseason camp Saturday morning inside Johnson Hagood Stadium. 
The scrimmage, which was the first practice session to include referees, lasted approximately two hours and featured scripted situations, move-the-ball sessions and live special teams work.  "I think it's good any time we can have officials out here," head coach Mike Houston said. "It's a little more like a ball game, which is good. We have three weeks until the first game, so to have that little bit of extra pressure on us was good for both sides."

2. Cadet sues Citadel, upperclassmen over alleged hazing

Less than four months after wrapping up an investigation into hazing at the military college, The Citadel is facing a civil suit brought by a cadet.  Citadel officials said the incident happened in November of 2013 and was not part of last Spring's investigation.  The suit also names three upperclassmen, all sophomores at the time of the alleged hazing incident. Only one of them is still enrolled at the school, a Citadel spokesperson said.  According to the complaint, brought by a cadet who was a "knob" at the time, the freshman was in his room with his roommate and another student when the three upperclassmen came in and attacked him.

Citadel coach Mike Houston has a much better feel for what his players go through each school day, along with a better handle of what they can accomplish on the football field as he starts his second season at the military college. The Bulldogs went 5-7 overall and 3-4 in the league a year ago, finishing in fifth — a spot ahead of where they were predicted in the preseason.  That performance in Houston's first year didn't alter many people's beliefs in the Citadel's direction — the Bulldogs were chosen seventh this time around.

2. Navy’s plan to focus more on fitness than fatness has a message for civilian population

Last week’s announcement that the Navy was taking a different approach to measuring fitness and taking a less punitive approach to those who don’t make standards has a message to the nation as a whole, says a national health expert based at The Citadel. In a nutshell, the Navy is modifying its body composition assessment, easing body fat limits for sailors, particularly as they age, moving away from career-ending punishments and taking a broader view of health in general.  The message to both those in the Navy and civilians, according to The Citadel’s Dr. Daniel Bornstein, is that you can be fit and a little fat. Even more importantly, Bornstein says exercising as part of daily lifestyle, rather than getting ready for fitness test, is key to sustained good health.

And Bernie Sanders."  Scott Buchanan, an associate professor and executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics, said Cruz's conservative views could attract a fair share of voters.

The Citadel ran 907 plays from the line of scrimmage last season, and defended 804 more. That gives football coach Mike Houston 1,711 plays to rewind in his mind as he ponders a 5-7 record in his first season with the Bulldogs.  But there are two plays that stick out — a fourth-and-10 with 51 seconds to play against Samford, and a fourth-and-goal from the 3-yard line on the game’s final play at Wofford.

Rice Jr. graduated from the Citadel in 1961 and went on to serve as an information officer in the U.S. Air Force. He brought some of his military background to the entertainment business when he returned to Nashville in 1963, always dressing sharply, being forceful as a salesman and negotiator and demanding punctuality and detailed record-keeping from his subordinates.

2. Graham’s touting military career, expertise invited scrutiny, experts say

Graham has built his campaign around his military and foreign policy experience, which is an invitation to the media and others to see if his claims stand up to scrutiny, said DuBose Kapeluck, a political scientist professor at The Citadel.   “It’s expected that someone is going to look into your military past, especially if you make it a cornerstone of your campaign,” Kapeluck said. “It’s a fair question. People are going to ask that question.”

3. Volunteering fills Andover woman’s ‘empty nest’ with good feelings

Like many parents, when the last of Cathy Kut’s three sons moved out and headed for the Citadel Military Academy in South Carolina she was left with a void. But unlike many others, Kut knew of a useful way to fill it. “I started out volunteering at Reverend Brown School and Pope John when the boys were there and when they left I just felt like an empty nester,” Kut said.
“By that time though, I had been volunteering for some time and I got a call asking me to be on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters and that led to other people calling me and asking me to serve on boards. That’s how I eventually got involved in United Way.”

3.1 Joan Cronan became a ‘pillar’ of her profession in Knoxville

When Joan Cronan first came to Knoxville in the late 1960s, the move from Louisiana involved more than just miles for her. “I thought I was coming to Yankee land,” she said. “This was north.” Now the city is home for the former University of Tennessee women’s athletic director, who will be inducted into the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday.  Cronan first came to UT as the women’s basketball coach in 1969. She was content as the athletic director at College of Charleston (S.C.) before returning. In both cases, her late husband, Tom, was instrumental in the move. Cronan’s return hinged on Tom leaving a position at The Citadel after being named professor of the year at the school.

1.1 Death on the Monongahela (book review; book written by Citadel professor)

Unsurprisingly, given its dramatic narrative, this ill-fated campaign has attracted the attention of many fine historians, yet none of them has explored it so thoughtfully and compellingly as David Preston. His “Braddock’s Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution” is distinguished not simply by his refusal to accept traditional interpretations but by his readiness to consider the perspectives of all the protagonists: British, colonial American, French-Canadian and, not least, Indian.

2. History lesson (letter to the editor)

The recent killings at Emanuel AME Church were unspeakable, and we all hope and pray this will never happen again in Charleston or anywhere. But a recent op-ed, “Build on unity against racism,” by Citadel history instructors Amanda Mushal and Kerry Taylor gives the impression that they have forgotten some of our history or have been using a new liberal text.

Citadel hopes for Allen-Jackson duo on offense

With veteran players all over the depth chart on offense, Citadel football coach Mike Houston knows there’s at least one major decision he’s got to get right after preseason practice starts Friday. Competing to replace Miller will be sophomores Dominique Allen and Cam Jackson. Allen, Miller’s backup last season, looked to be the leader before injuring his knee in spring practice. Jackson, who had a breakout season at slotback in 2013, was then moved back to quarterback — where he played in high school — and performed well.

Ready or not, John McKissick faces a season without football

Still, there’s one thing McKissick will be eager to do this fall — watch his grandson, Joe Call, coach the Green Wave.  Call, 36, played quarterback for his grandfather at Summerville, then at The Citadel. He’s been an assistant coach for the Green Wave since 2003, the offensive coordinator since 2007. He was named the Green Wave’s interim coach for the 2015 season on June 25, while another former McKissick player, Brion Rutherford, was named to replace McKissick as athletic director.

Stamford grads travel not far and wide

 They may have started in Stamford, but they’re off to many places - some as near as Broad Street, some as far as Wyoming.  Data compiled by the Stamford school district show the diversity in the college plans for its graduating seniors.  “If you look across all of our high schools, there’s such a broad spectrum,” district spokeswoman Sharon Beadle said.  The district is sending three students off to military service academies, with two students planning to attend the United States Military Academy and one heading to the Air Force Academy. Another student will be attending The Citadel in South Carolina.
