2. Letter: Citadel is a good neighbor to Burke
I am writing to express gratitude to Jim Senter, athletic director at The Citadel, for his generosity to Burke High School and to the downtown community. He welcomed the Burke football team to Johnson Hagood Stadium for the 2015 season - an extraordinary gesture to a neighboring institution. Further, he showed what a genuinely united Charleston looks like: people doing the right thing by one another, sharing resources when needed and showing both determination and compassion in finding solutions to difficult problems. May Mr. Senter's actions be an example to all of us of how we can contribute to a just and connected community. Written by Elena Tuerk, Ph.D., president of the Westside Neighborhood Association

3. Savor Every Season in Charleston's 10 Best Parks
1. Hampton Park: This nearly 70-acre green space, named for General Wade Hampton, a Civil War general and governor of South Carolina, is located just north of Charleston's bustling downtown, close to The Citadel military college. Hampton Park has been popular with walkers, runners, sunbathers and others wishing to take advantage of the warm and sunny Charleston weather. The park, which is equipped with public restrooms, a playground, picnic tables, and free WIFI, is home to a beautiful variety of annual blooms, as well as a fountain and pond. Hampton Park is also a popular public space for weddings and engagements, photo shoots, and even exercise meet-ups. 2. Marion Square: Marion Square's 6.5 acres of green city park space is always a great spot to picnic, take a break from shopping, or catch some Charleston sun. Once used as drilling grounds for The Citadel, Charleston's local military college, Marion Square Park is now home to weekly Saturday Farmer's Markets, as well as many other special events, including Charleston Fashion Week, Food + Wine Festival, and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. Often referred to by local college students as Marion Square "Beach" in warmer months, the park is frequented by locals playing Frisbee and sunbathing with their laptops and textbooks. Don't miss an opportunity to stop and rest a while (or even picnic) on the wide open field space here--so very convenient to every city attraction.

4. Gang prosecutor for Troup County retires after 20 years with Coweta Judicial Circuit
One of the hardest-hitting gang prosecutors in Troup County retired Friday after 20 years as a Georgia assistant district attorney. Ray C. Mayer is leaving Troup County to work in Hall County, where he will continue to prosecute felonies, he said. District Attorney Pete Skandalakis said Mayer showed unwavering devotion to justice and was detail oriented throughout his entire career with the Coweta Judicial Circuit. "I hate to see Ray go," Skandalakis said. "I've had him on a number of major of cases, including a number of cold cases we successfully prosecuted. He's the consummate professional and he's going to be hard to replace." Mayer is a graduate of The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, South Carolina, and of Mercer Law School. He served in the U.S. Army during which he worked with armored tanks and was discharged as a captain. His wife, Julie, also worked for the Coweta Judicial Circuit as a victim advocate. He has one son, Wes, who until recently was a reporter for the Newnan Times-Herald. Mayer has three step-children and three grandchildren.

7. Abbeville weighs options for next city manager
After spending about an hour behind closed doors, Abbeville City Council approved two motions setting in motion the hunt for the next city manager. David McCuen is leaving the post after five years to become assistant city manager in Anderson on Nov. 9. Councilman Delano Freeman made a motion to allow McCuen to approach David Krumwiede about serving as interim city manager. Krumwiede, a longtime city resident, served as Abbeville City Manager from 1982 until his retirement in 2005, when Nolan Riggins, McCuen's predecessor, took the reins. "I feel (Krumwiede) would give us the best opportunity to bridge between the two city managers," Freeman said. "We can't hire anyone before (McCuen) leaves, so there would be a period of time, a gap." Highlights of Krumwiede's 24-year career include the extension of water service to Calhoun Falls, the widening of Highway 72 to four lanes through Abbeville and the passing of the Historic Preservation Ordinance to protect the historic integrity of the city. Krumwiede, who currently serves the town of Due West in a part-time administrative role, has bachelor's and master's degrees in political science from The Citadel and University of South Carolina, respectively, and has served in public administration in Lancaster, Greer and Catawba County, North Carolina, before Abbeville.

The Citadel volleyball team returns to action this Wednesday as they take on Mercer in Macon, Georgia, at 6 p.m. "With our first conference match under our belt, we are eager to get back on the court," head coach Craig Mosqueda said. "We continue to take steps forward and we're working hard to continue our growth." In their last match, the Bulldogs (6-11, 0-1 SoCon) fell to East Tennessee State University 3-1 in their conference opener. The Citadel managed to pick up a win in the third set 25-18 before dropping the fourth to the Bucs.

9b. USC Beaufort women's golf tied for lead at San Shark Shootout
The USC Beaufort women's golf team's hopes of keeping the hardware from their inaugural tournament at home are in good shape after the first round of the Sand Shark Shootout. The Sand Sharks posted a team score of 303 Monday at Bluffton's Hampton Hall Club to tie for the lead with Coastal Georgia, and USCB's Franzi Knoetsch and Lina Sekerkova are one shot off the individual lead after firing rounds of 1-under-par 71.

The Sand Sharks and Mariners have a comfortable lead over the rest of the eight-team field, with NCAA Division II Queens (N.C.) 12 shots back in third and NCAA Division I The Citadel in 19 shots off the lead in fourth. Knoetsch and Turner anchored USCB's team score along with solid rounds from Moa Kristenson, who is 12th after a 78, and Vanessa Schloo, who is tied for 13th at 79. Freshman Megan Martin rounded out the lineup with an 83 in her collegiate debut.

9d. Have a problem with Notre Dame's schedule? Put a blemish on it
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney used 350 words Tuesday at his weekly news conference to explain that he doesn't care "one iota" what Notre Dame does with its schedule before getting around to saying what he and many other coaches think: That Notre Dame's independence, meaning a 12-game schedule with no conference championship to win, brings inequity into the College Football Playoff selection process. "That's their business," said Swinney, whose team plays Notre Dame on Saturday. "But ask me the question or my opinion, yeah, I think they should have to play 13 games. I mean, to me, I feel, not just them, same thing with the Big 12. I don't think that's fair. I don't think it's equitable. I can't do anything about it, so I ain't worried about it. I (couldn't) care less." Though on paper it may require Clemson to play 13 games to make the playoff, one of its games this year is against Wofford from the Football Championship Subdivision. In 2016, it will play South Carolina State. In 2017, it will play the Citadel and in 2018 it hosts Furman.

1. Coast Guard, Lowcountry agencies to conduct mass rescue exercise Wednesday
The Coast Guard, along with several law enforcement and rescue agencies, will conduct a mass rescue exercise Wednesday. The event is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and end by noon at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant. The scenario will require agencies to respond to a boat that is sinking after striking a submerged object and coordinate the rescue of eight mannequins in the water. The purpose of the exercise is to improve coordination, communication and techniques among the participating agencies. Participating agencies include law enforcement, fire, dispatch and rescue from Charleston County, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. The American Red Cross, The Citadel, SpiritLine Cruises and Charleston Branch Pilots Association, among others, will also take part in the rescue exercise.

2. High school and college leaders address math pathways
Educators and senior administrators from five universities and four public school districts serving Lowcountry students have formed a collaborative team to focus on improving "math pathways" between high school and college. The team includes senior officials from Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester School Districts Two and Four, Charleston Southern University, The Citadel, Clemson, the College of Charleston, Trident Technical College and the University of South Carolina. The TCCC Regional Education Report released earlier this year presented data on educational outcomes across the cradle to career continuum, including significant remediation needs for first year students at Trident Tech. Of more than 1,000 local high school graduates enrolled as first time freshmen at Trident Tech in 2014, nine of ten required remedial math coursework. Subsequent analysis performed for TCCC's Postsecondary Education Consortium, comprised of seven institutions of higher education serving the Lowcountry, confirmed math 'readiness' issues were more extensive, especially for students considering STEM related disciplines. Close to 30% of the additional 1,000 regional high school graduates who take a math placement test at these institutions, in most cases voluntarily, fail to pass.

4. Carly Fiorina killed in the televised debates. But how would she do in person?
Carly Fiorina swept into this key primary state last week with momentum in her favor, a shining new face rising above the fray of the GOP primary slog thanks to a fresh and forceful performance in two national debates. She had killed on TV. But how would she do in a room? At The Citadel military college, a poised Fiorina dazzled a packed audience as she held forth on military spending priorities, rattled off the names of world leaders and strategic locales, and name-checked "my good friend Bibi Netanyahu," a firm nod of the head to emphasize each point. It was as if she had a teleprompter in her brain. "Are you reading the cards over my shoulder?" asked the clearly impressed moderator, a think tanker named Arthur Herman. "I do not want to play poker with you."

5. New Location for the Battle of Crecy discovered
For over 250 years it has been believed that the Battle of Crecy, one of the most famous battles of the Middle Ages, was fought just north of the French town of Crecy-en-Ponthieu in Picardy. Now, a new book that contains the most intensive examination of sources about the battle to date, offers convincing evidence that the fourteenth-century battle instead took place 5.5 km to the south. This is one of several fascinating new details revealed in The Battle of Crecy: A Casebook, edited by Michael Livingston and Kelly DeVries, which is being released this week by Liverpool University Press. It contains 81 contemporary sources in facing-page translation (many published for the first time) that describe the battle, along with eight new essays that reconstruct the events of August 26, 1346. The battle, fought between King Edward III of England and Philippe VI of France during the early stages of the Hundred Years War, involved tens of thousands of soldiers. It ended with a major English victory and the French army crippled. Historians have often pointed to it as being one the most important battles of the medieval period, noted especially for the use of the longbow within it. Michael Livingston, an Associate Professor at The Citadel, penned the article "The Location of the Battle of Crecy," in which he examined the traditional site of the battle, just on the outskirts of the town of Crecy, and proposed a new location to the south - at the Forest of Crecy. "I can be 99% certain that the traditional site has no connection to the Battle of Crecy,” he tells Medievalists.net, adding, "I can only be, say, 90% certain that my alternative location has a connection."

6. War And Peace In The Middle East: The Many Challenges To Managing Conflict
To many, the Middle East is a quagmire of perpetual war and ISIS brutality with an endless stream of refugees fleeing to safety. But Paul Hughes is an optimist who looks beyond the often gruesome daily news headlines. At the non-partisan U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C., he and his colleagues work to prevent international conflicts, ease tension when war does break out, and once the dust settles, help people regain what they've lost. Hughes will kick off the fall lectures series of the World Affairs Council of Charleston at 6 p.m. Oct. 7 at the Citadel Alumni Center. His topic: "War and Peace in the Middle East - the Many Challenges to Managing Conflict." A reception is at 5:15 p.m. The top issue in the Middle East today, Hughes said in a telephone interview, is that the region's demographics are changing. The infrastructure of every country is being stressed as hundreds of thousands of refugees pour into neighboring countries. War, poverty and poor governance have uprooted 19 million people across the Middle East and North Africa, according to the Institute of Peace.

8. Charleston Southern's Mike Holloway earns Big South honor for performance against The Citadel
Charleston Southern running back Mike Holloway has been named the Big South Conference offensive player of the week after his performance in the Bucs' 33-20 victory over The Citadel on Saturday. Holloway, a junior, rushed for 172 yards and three touchdowns to help Charleston Southern post its third straight win against The Citadel.

Farrow was named freshman of the week.

1. Kasich Super PAC pivots to national security in TV ad debuting Monday
A new TV ad touting Ohio Governor John Kasich's national security credentials over the rest of the Republican presidential field will hit New Hampshire’s airwaves Monday morning. The ad by the New Day for America Super PAC supporting him, obtained by Reuters and viewable here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=762wogDccxg&feature=youtu.be, opens with a jarring reminder that a multitude of foreign policy concerns and crises are certain to loom large over the November 2016 election, including threats from ISIS, Russian President Vladimir Putin, al Qaeda, North Korea, a nuclear Iran, China and cyber attacks. Kasich claims he is the only one among his rivals for the White House with the experience to restore American leadership on the chaotic global stage. He’s making that argument aggressively while other candidates fixate on immigration and standard economic policy: He lists his 18 years of national security experience on the U.S. House Armed Services Committee as the second major selling point on the biographical page on his campaign website. The ad debuts in New Hampshire just a few days after back-to-back campaign events highlighting this experience: He'll campaign at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, today and headline a national security forum hosted by Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday.

4a. Crony Capitalism the Cause of Society's Problems
Since the economic downturn of 2008, the critics of capitalism have redoubled their efforts to persuade the American people and many others around the world that the system of individual freedom and free enterprise has failed. These critics have insisted that it is unbridled capitalism, set lose on the world, which is the source of all of our personal and society misfortunes. We hear and read this not only in the popular news media and out of the mouths of the political pundits. We see it also in the election of a radical socialist to the leadership of the British Labor party, and a self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" riding high in the public opinion polls for the Democratic Party's nomination to the U.S. presidency. The first observation to make is that many if not most of the social and economic misfortunes that are most frequently talked about are not the product of a "failed" free enterprise. The reason for this is that a consistently practiced free enterprise system no longer exists in the United States. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4b. The Human Cost of Socialism in Power
The attempt to establish a comprehensive socialist system in many parts of the world over the last one hundred years has been one of the cruelest and most brutal episodes in human history. Some historians have estimated that as many as 200 million people may have died as part of the dream of creating a collectivist "Paradise on Earth." Making a better "new world" was taken to mean the extermination, the liquidation, the mass murder of all those that the socialist revolutionary leaders declared to be "class enemies," including the families, the children of "enemies of the people." . Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4c. Low Interest Rates Cannot Perpetuate a House of Cards
When is the price of some marketable good or service at or near zero? When either the supply of it is so plentiful that virtually any demand, no matter how great, can be satisfied or when no matter how large or small the supply of it may be, people's demand for it is so low that nobody is willing to practically pay anything for it. On Thursday, September 17, 2015, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen announced that, once again, America's central bank was leaving a key interest rate - the Federal Funds rate at which banks lend money to each other overnight - at barely above zero. The Federal Reserve has manipulated and maintained this interest rate near zero for almost seven years, now. Dr. Richard Ebeling is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. He was professor of economics at Northwood University in Midland, Michigan (2009-2014).

6a. Charleston Southern rallies for third straight win over Citadel
In most college football rivalries, bragging rights last for just a year before they have to be renewed. But Charleston Southern will be able to relish for quite a while its three-game win streak over Lowcountry rival The Citadel, capped by Saturday night's 33-20 win. "Bragging rights for a long time," said CSU coach Jamey Chadwell, whose team rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit before a crowd of 11,998 at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "Usually you get a year for it, but now we have bragging rights for a three or four years, because we're not going to play again soon. "Especially after this game." The 13-point margin of victory was the Bucs' largest in their three-game streak over The Citadel, but this one wasn't even that close. CSU (3-1), led by 172 yards and three touchdowns from running back Mike Holloway, out-gained The Citadel 494-290 and limited The Citadel's triple option - averaging 396.3 rushing yards - to less than half of that at 181 yards. The Bucs outscored the Bulldogs by 27-3 in the second half.

6b. Sapakoff: Charleston Southern, Citadel better with bitterness
Jamey Chadwell gathered his gleeful football team in the middle of the Johnson Hagood Stadium field Saturday night for a post-game prayer following a 33-20 victory over The Citadel. He was interrupted by a giggly shout. "Give him the broom!" a player said. With that, the Charleston Southern head coach found his new favorite household tool and made three broad stokes. One for each of the relatively glorious wins over the Bulldogs the last three seasons. "Sweep! Sweep! Sweep!" the players yelled in unison. Chadwell thanked the Lord, then ripped The Citadel for its cool interest in continuing the series beyond this season - on Charleston Southern's home-and-home terms, that is. "There's probably not a chance that we're ever going to play again as long as I'm here, maybe while he (Citadel head coach Mike Houston) is here," Chadwell said. The 38-year-old coach was just getting warmed up.

6c. Charleston Southern's wins 'light a fire' under Citadel
After all the talk of t-shirt slogans and future schedules, there remains a football game to be played Saturday night between Charleston Southern and The Citadel. The 6 p.m. game at Johnson Hagood Stadium promises to be intense and hard-fought. And with no future games between the Lowcountry rivals currently scheduled, the loser might have to live with the result for a long time. Despite two straight wins over The Citadel, Charleston Southern players are not convinced they've earned the Bulldogs' respect. And those back-to-back losses certainly add incentive for Citadel players. "Definitely," said Citadel linebacker James Riley. "With this being a rivalry game, and them beating us last year, it lights a fire in us. I've talked to our defense, and we've all got the same passion to win. We want to come out and play as hard as we can against these guys." The Citadel has won five of eight meetings between the schools since the series started in 2002. But the Buccaneers won by 32-29 in 2013 and by 20-18 last year in the first game in the series played at CSU Stadium.

6d. Pigskin Picks: Split on Charleston Southern vs. Citadel
Many Citadel fans remember Charleston Southern as a fledgling club football program on the edge of town, and most couldn't name a current or former player. The Buccaneers play Alabama this year. They also have a two-game win streak against The Citadel going into Saturday night's game at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Citadel head coach Mike Houston has been a part of only one loss to Charleston Southern, but has seen enough in person and on tape to know the Bucs have come a long way since their first season in 1991. "People who associate Charleston Southern with what they were 20 years ago are making a mistake, because they have put a lot of money into their program," Houston said. "They have done a good job of building their facilities. They're a very good FCS program. They've had a couple winning seasons in a row. They've beat some really good teams. I think it's a pretty even matchup." No shame if the Citadel (2-1) loses to Charleston Southern (2-1) again. But regaining Chucktown Throwdown braggin' rights would cap a very nice first month of football for the Bulldogs.

7. Bulldogs Welcome ETSU for SoCon Opener
The Citadel volleyball team hosts East Tennessee State University for its conference opener on Saturday at 4 p.m. inside McAlister Field House. "We are excited to finally get into conference play," head coach Craig Mosqueda said. "We have competed against some tough teams who have helped us prepare." The Citadel (6-10) returns from a 3-0 win at Savannah State, going 26-24, 25-16, 25-13. Junior Megan Sowell earned her fourth double-double of the season in her last outing after posting a match-high 16 kills and 13 digs. In her last outing, senior Rachel Keefer recorded a match-high 34 assists, along with 13 digs for her eighth double-double of the season. The setter is third in the conference in double-doubles.

9. Georgia Southern heads west for Sun Belt Conference opener
The Georgia Southern Eagles have traveled across the country to Moscow, Idaho, to take on Idaho on Saturday in a game that marks the first Sun Belt Conference outing of the season for the Eagles. The Eagles were 8-0 in Sun Belt play last year, including a 47-24 victory over the Vandals. Last season was Georgia Southern's first year in the Sun Belt and at the FBS level football. Because of that transition, they were ineligible for a bowl game despite winning the conference. "Our guys are excited. You know, we are playing the defending champs. They are undefeated in the league, and they are coming to our place," Idaho head coach Paul Petrino said. "It's very exciting, and we are going to go out there and hopefully play the best game we have played yet to date." The Eagles enter the game having won two straight, over Western Michigan and The Citadel. The Citadel's triple-option offense was a task for the Eagles' defense to handle, and it was up to it, holding the Bulldogs to 13 points. This week, the Eagles face a completely different offensive mindset.

1a. Carly Fiorina Is Unfazed by Her New Status

There's something distinctly impressive about Carly Fiorina's rhetorical rhythm that's persuading voters she's capable of handling any problem that could be thrown at her.  She doesn't stutter or stammer like Jeb Bush often does. She doesn't tangle herself into a pretzel that has to be undone later like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker frequently did. She's more dynamic than the docile Ben Carson, yet considerably less impulsive than the uninhibited Donald Trump.  That may mean she's just right. While she's largely branded as a former CEO with a checkered legacy and a failed U.S. Senate contender in California, she pointedly reminded an audience attending a national security forum at The Citadel that she chaired the CIA's External Advisory Board, advised two secretaries of defense and held the highest security clearances available to a civilian.  She's also particularly observant of the audience she's speaking to. At The Citadel, she paused at the beginning of questioning from a moderator to ask that everyone rise to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. "It's a good reminder of why we're here," she said.

1b. A sword’s return with honor

It was a historic event when the CSS Hunley was recovered from the waters off Charleston. When the remains of the crew were removed from the submarine they were honorably put to rest under the banner they had given their lives to defend. It was a ceremony watched worldwide.  Another historic event has happened at The Citadel: The sword belonging to CSA Col. Charles Courtenay Tew has been moved into the custody of the college. This sword is not just a relic, it commemorates his spirit and dedication to duty. Col. Tew’s remains will probably never be recovered but his spirit will be coming home to The Citadel with the sword.  Regardless of the political correctness now prevailing, I hope this Confederate soldier will be honored as such under the banner he gave his life for.

1b. After 40 years in office, Riley prescribes 6 ways to make SC better (video included)

Like many of Charleston’s most famous attractions, Mayor Joseph P. Riley has been around for a while.  For 40 years, Riley has been the Holy City’s leader. When he leaves office in January, he will do so as a widely admired politician, credited with leading Charleston’s revival from a down-and-out port city to a world-class community for residents and visitors alike.  As the 72-year-old mayor winds down his days in Charleston’s City Hall and prepares for the next act in his life — he’ll keep working on a planned $75 million International African American Museum as a volunteer and will be teaching at The Citadel, among other things — The State asked Riley to temporarily expand his jurisdiction and assess the entire state of South Carolina.

Everything — Citadel wins, Tomsula, ‘Hard Knocks’ — is clicking for Charleston Southern football

The beat goes on within the Charleston Southern football program this week. Music blares from sideline speakers as the Buccaneers prepare for a Saturday night showdown with The Citadel at Johnson Hagood Stadium.  Coaches wear homemade T-shirts designed to set a tone. Tuesday is the normal work day, so that’s why the ‘Bloody Tuesday’ shirts,” said head coach Jamey Chadwell, whose white T-shirt was properly painted with bright red letters. Wednesday?  “Wednesday is …, well, I’m probably not at liberty to say exactly what we call it,” Chadwell said. “Let’s just say it’s ‘Mean Wednesday.’ And Thursday is ‘Atta Boy Thursday.’ You can do no wrong around here on Thursday.”

For Citadel, signing day surprise Evan McField still surprising

A good fullback, Citadel coach Mike Houston says, needs vision and the ability to change direction quickly.  Bulldogs’ fullback Evan McField demonstrated those qualities in abundance last year on National Signing Day.  McField, then a senior at Goose Creek High School, reported to the Gators’ signing day event in February of 2014 with a South Carolina State hat in hand, fully expecting to sign with S.C. State. He was on stage with his Gators’ teammates when he changed his mind, deciding to sign with The Citadel. Talk about change of direction. “I just felt it was a better choice for me,” said McField, now a redshirt freshman. “I wanted to go to The Citadel, but I didn’t have an offer until then. I knew that The Citadel was where I wanted to go if I had the chance.”

Save crosstown football showdown

It’s not Clemson vs. South Carolina, Alabama vs. Auburn or Florida State vs. Florida. But Charleston Southern vs. The Citadel does rate rising football rivalry status. And unlike the annual grudge matches listed above, the one that will kick off at 6 p.m. Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium is a crosstown showdown — or if you prefer, The Chucktown Throwdown.  The Citadel won five of its first six games against CSU by an average margin of more than 31 points, including a 49-14 romp in 2012.  Then the Bucs won a 2013 thriller at The Citadel, 32-29. And last year, in the Bulldogs’ first visit to CSU, the Bucs edged them again, 20-18. So it’s a shame that The Citadel’s future scheduling considerations are putting this exciting series at risk.

1a. Fiorina pledges firmness with China, says nix state dinner (news roundup)

Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina joined her GOP rivals Tuesday in saying Chinese President Xi Jinping should not be honored with a state dinner at the White House.The former Hewlett-Packard CEO said during a national security forum in South Carolina that she still would meet privately with Xi. But she said she would cancel the dinner as just one step in a new hard line against Beijing, which she criticized for cybersecurity threats, Xi's military buildup in the South China Sea and human rights abuses.Fiorina identified China, together with Russia and Iran, as aggressors that she would curtail if elected. Obama has dealt meekly with the three nations, Fiorina argued, comparing the trio to misbehaving children. "What happens If you let your teenager do bad stuff over and over again, what do they do? Bad stuff," she said, drawing a mix of laughter and applause at The Citadel military college in Charleston. "Well, it's true of China and (others)."

Deputy Chief Taylor Jones, FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force member Tim Sumney along with Anderson University Assistant Professor, Howard Murphy represented the County and discussed the necessity of stronger regional relationships to counter the growing threat of terrorism. The conference also featured professionals and academics from various disciplines and agencies related to homeland security and intelligence. Chief Jones says, "The relationship we have built with The Citadel as well as other law enforcement and emergency organizations has allowed us to increase preparedness within our own County and across the Upstate region. As we continue to develop partnerships and conduct mock exercises like Vigilant Guard in February, Anderson County will be more closely aligned with the State's operations plan for terrorism and emergency situations."

Here's a quick look at how MONEY determined which of the country's roughly 1,500 four-year colleges and universities deliver the most value-that is, a great education, at an affordable price, that helps students launch promising careers. -Initial cut. MONEY screened out schools with graduation rates below the median and those facing financial difficulties. -Ranking factors. The remaining colleges were ranked on 21 factors in three equally weighted categories: educational quality, affordability, and alumni earnings from PayScale.com. -Special value measure. Included: a "value added" grade that considered how well students at each school did vs. what would be expected given their economic and academic backgrounds and the institution's mix of majors. -Focus on affordability. Among the factors considered: merit aid, parent and student borrowing, the length of time to graduate, tuition increases, and other measures. #67: Citadel Military College of South Carolina - Charleston, SC

6a. Bobby Ruff, son of former Citadel great, was 'meant to end up at Charleston Southern'
Bobby Ruff could not begin to count the number of Citadel football games he sat through as a youngster. As the youngest son of arguably the greatest player in the history of the program, Ruff grew up quite the fan of the blue and white. A childhood dream will be realized Saturday night when The Citadel hosts Charleston Southern, and Ruff will take the field at Johnson Hagood Stadium in a football uniform for the very first time. But not for the team one might expect. Ruff is a sophomore linebacker at Charleston Southern, and though he saw action on special teams in the Bucs' 20-18 victory over the Bulldogs last season, that game was at Buccaneer Field. Ruff finally gets to play in the stadium where his father played, but on a different sideline. "As a kid, I would sit in the stands and picture myself out there wearing that Citadel blue, no doubt about it," said Ruff, who began attending wrestling camps at The Citadel when he was 5 years old. "I imagined running out on the field. I was definitely a fan growing up. It's going to be weird coming out the other side."

The Southern Conference announced this week that member schools can pay cost-of-attendance stipends to student-athletes in 2016-17, but two schools already have said that they will not. The presidents of SoCon members Wofford and Virginia Military Institute were among the presidents of seven FCS schools who signed a letter stating that "our institutions have chosen not to offer additional 'cost of attendance' payments to student-athletes at this time." The letter apparently was published prematurely online, but both Wofford and VMI issued statements confirming their stance. The presidents of James Madison, New Hampshire, Elon, Hofstra, William and Mary, Vermont and Delaware also signed the letter. Citadel athletic director Jim Senter said his school is still considering its options. "The Citadel will remain focused on utilizing our resources to enhance the experience for all 350 of our cadet-athletes," Senter said in a statement. "Our senior athletic administrators are constantly evaluating ways to rise to the next level in every aspect of our athletic department, and we will announce specific plans as they are implemented."

6c. Georgia Southern Football Review: The Citadel Game
Now why would I bring this up? Especially since Georgia Southern isn't listed in this week's standings (he only tracks FBS vs FBS games). Well, I took a look at when the knockout; occurred in Statesboro this weekend, and it was when the Citadel's 4th down pass fell incomplete on their second drive with 8:30 left on the clock in the first quarter. There was 53:30 left on the game clock. That would register as the fourth fastest knockout in the nation last weekend. Just behind... well, let's not talk about that. The final score was 48-13, with a margin of victory of 35 points. The Citadel's points were all in the second half. They gained over 300 yards on the ground. However, the game was never really in doubt.

6d. Future of Charleston Southern vs. Citadel series uncertain
Last year, after CSU won its second straight game over The Citadel, the Buccaneers coach emerged from the victors locker room wearing a T-shirt that read, “Charleston, it’s Southern’s City.”  This week, as the Bucs and Bulldogs prepare to meet for the ninth time, Chadwell is proposing a sort of “Mayors’ Cup” trophy that would go to the winner of the game between schools that sit about 15 miles apart.  “I’d like to see it be a yearly rivalry, get the mayors of Charleston and North Charleston involved and make it a trophy game,” Chadwell said Tuesday. “I think it’s good for our city, for our state and for FCS football.”  But it’s unclear when the teams will meet again after Saturday’s 6 p.m. game at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Charleston Southern and The Citadel are not slated to play next season, and no future games have been scheduled as of now, although the two sides are apparently talking.  “I would think it makes sense, as close as the two institutions are,” said Citadel coach Mike Houston, “to work something out in the future to continue playing each other. But that will be up to the administrators.”

7. H.D. Smith founder dies at 87
Henry Dale Smith, Sr., founder and former CEO of independent wholesaler H.D. Smith, has died, the company announced Monday. He was 87. The entire H. D. Smith family is deeply saddened by the loss of our founder and a pioneer in healthcare distribution, Henry Dale Smith; Henry Dale Smith Jr., his eldest son and current chairman and CEO of H. D. Smith Holding Company, said. Dad's vision and passion for ensuring that community pharmacies, hospitals, and patients are able to access the health products they need, when and how they need them, is what continues to inspire us each day. His legacy will live on, even as we mourn. Smith, a pharmacist by trade, started H.D. Smith in 1954, and since its founding has grown to be the fourth-largest national pharmaceutical wholesaler, the company said. Smith held the titles of CEO and chairman, most recently being the chairman emeritus. His son James Christopher Smith is now the CEO. Smith was also an active member of the National Wholesale Druggists Association, serving on its board from 1984-1986.

1a. Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina leading GOP candidate charge into South Carolina
Carly Fiorina, whose clashes with front-runner Donald Trump at last week's CNN debate reshaped the Republican chase for the White House, will be at The Citadel in Charleston on Tuesday during a frenetic week of candidate appearances throughout South Carolina. Trump, the caustic real estate mogul and reality TV star, also will be in the Lowcountry, attending a gathering of African-American business leaders in North Charleston and a town hall hosted by U.S. Sen. Tim Scott in Columbia on Wednesday. Trump's two appearances in South Carolina follow an 11th-hour cancellation last week when he bowed out of the conservative Heritage Action's forum Friday in Greenville because of a pressing "business transaction." Trump's cancellation merely delayed his arrival in the Palmetto State, but Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday ended his faltering campaign, canceling his one scheduled appearance at a meet-and-greet in Warrenville. At one point, Walker was leading in the polls in Iowa and South Carolina, two of the early voting states.

Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina is talking law, the constitution and national security as she begins a three-day swing in South Carolina. The former Hewlett-Packard CEO is scheduled to appear at the Coral Reef Resort and Conference Center in Myrtle Beach on Tuesday for a forum sponsored by the Conservative Leadership Project.

Also Tuesday, Fiorina will spend an hour at The Citadel in Charleston talking about foreign affairs and national security. That event is hosted by Americans for Peace, Prosperity and Security, a national organization that promotes a strong American influence in world affairs.

1d. The Daily 202: What went wrong for Scott Walker
Scott Walker believed that surviving the recall prepared him for the rigors and scrutiny that come with running for president. He was wrong. Winning three elections in four years in a blue state like Wisconsin clouded his judgment and made him overconfident in his own abilities... What's happening today on the campaign trail: Donald Trump appears on "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert. In Iowa, Hillary meets with the Des Moines Register editorial board and attends a community forum in Des Moines while Jeb makes stops in Cedar Falls, Gladbrook and Cedar Rapids. In S.C., Carly Fiorina attends a national security forum at The Citadel in Charleston and a town hall in Myrtle Beach, while Mike Huckabee makes stops in Myrtle Beach, Columbia, Whitmire and Newberry. Ben Carson holds rallies in Sharonville and Cedarville, Ohio, while Lindsey Graham meets voters in Manchester, N.H. Rick Santorum also campaigns in Des Moines and Ames, Iowa, on Tuesday.

2a. Surgeon General's "Step It Up!" call to action to promote walking resonates in Charleston
We all know that walking is good for you and that, as "exercise" goes, it is the simplest, least expensive and physically demanding of a long list of activities. Yet fewer than half of us walk enough to reap the benefits of preventing the top killers of Americans" heart disease and cancer. Earlier this month, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued the office's first comprehensive report on physical activity since 1996. The report is called "Step It Up! The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities." In a nutshell, Murthy underscored not only the importance of getting Americans to walk 150 minutes a week but how all of us - governments, schools, businesses, neighborhoods and individuals - need to make the our communities friendlier and more conducive for walking. Local academics and advocates applauded Murthy's report and said it should be used to bolster action on building better infrastructure and encouraging walking. Dr. Daniel Bornstein, a Citadel health professor and project coordinator for the U.S. National Physical Activity Plan, says evidence is clear that walking provides significant health benefits and that national efforts to focus on promoting it is a key strategy. But he says the report's biggest contribution is in urging all entities to join in an effort to make communities more walking-friendly. After all, the 2013 report notes that 30 percent of Americans live in neighborhoods without sidewalks.

2b. College Choice Releases 2016 Ranking of Southern Regional Universities
College Choice has published its 2016 ranking of regional universities in the South. These are Southern universities that offer a full range of undergraduate programs, and some master's programs, but relatively few doctoral programs. This ranking is based exclusively on factors actual college students said were most important to their college decision. According to the most recent annual CIRP Freshmen Survey by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, these factors include academic reputation, financial aid offerings, overall cost, and success of graduates in the post-college job market. Mercer University in Macon, Georgia replaced Winter Park, Florida's Rollins College at number one this year. Rollins took the second spot, followed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona, Florida. Universities making the list include: The Citadel, Charleston, SC

4. Austrian Economics and the Time for Monetary Freedom
For over a decade, now, the American economy has been on an economic rollercoaster, of an economic boom between 2003 and 2008, followed by a severe economic downturn, and with a historically slow and weak recovery starting in 2009 up to the present. Before the dramatic stock market decline of 2008-2009, many were the political and media pundits who were sure that the "good times" could continue indefinitely, including some members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, America's central bank. When the economic downturn began and then worsened, many were the critics who were sure that this proved the "failure" of capitalism in bringing such financial and real economic disruption to America and the world. There were resurrected long questioned or rejected theories from the Great Depression years of the 1930s that argued that only far-sighted and wise government interventions and regulations could save the country from economic catastrophe and guarantee we never suffer from a similar calamity in the future. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

6. Hughes works to prevent international conflicts
To many, the Middle East is a quagmire of perpetual war and ISIS brutality, with an endless stream of refugees fleeing to safety. But Paul Hughes is an optimist who looks beyond the often gruesome daily news headlines. At the non-partisan U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C., he and his colleagues work to prevent international conflicts, ease tension when war does break out, and once the dust settles, help people regain what they've lost. Hughes will kick off the fall lectures series of the World Affairs Council of Charleston at 6 p.m. Oct. 7 at The Citadel Alumni Center. His topic: "War and Peace in the Middle East - the Many Challenges to Managing Conflict." A reception is at 5:15 p.m. The top issue in the Middle East today, Hughes said in a telephone interview, is that the region's demographics are changing. The infrastructure of every country is being stressed as hundreds of thousands of refugees pour into neighboring countries. War, poverty and poor governance have uprooted 19 million people across the Middle East and North Africa, according to the Institute of Peace.

7. Ten best performances from the weekend by local college football players
Tay Hicklin, Georgia Southern: senior defensive back made four stops during Georgia Southern's 48-13 win over The Citadel. Hicklin started the game at cornerback for the Eagles. Rock Hill High's Mitchell Jeter made three tackles, sharing a tackle-for-loss in The Citadel's 48-13 loss to Georgia Southern.

8. Many questions remain for local college football teams
The ACC's Big Four schools are 9-3 three weeks into the season, including N.C. State's 3-0 start. Good football or good scheduling? On the surface, the only unexpected result so far was a disappointing 28-10 loss at The Citadel sandwiched around a win they were supposed to get (42-14) and a loss they figured to endure (55-10 at Tennessee). But there are perhaps legitimate concerns that a case of senioritis has spread through Cullowhee, where a group of fourth- and fifth-year players who worked so hard to turn the program around now appear to be spinning their wheels. Quarterback Troy Mitchell's numbers are not impressive (54-of-97, 532 yards, four interceptions, one touchdown), and the offense seems to be locked into a very conservative and predictable run it up the middle on first down philosophy. After a week off, the Cats play three of their next four games at home, sandwiched around a trip to Wofford.

9. Five lessons from Carolina loss to Dawgs
We could probably come up with 25 things we learned from USC's 52-20 loss to Georgia Saturday night in Athens. Brevity demands we keep the list at five, though, so here we go: ...4. Attaining bowl eligibility will be challenging- Circumstances change weekly, of course, but looking at USC's schedule over the final nine games, how many can you confidently put into the win column? Right now, I would say UCF, Vanderbilt and The Citadel. That's four. USC must somehow find two wins from games against Missouri, LSU, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Florida and Clemson. After watching USC try to tackle Nick Chubb without success on Saturday night, LSU's Leonard Fournette, probably the top running back in the SEC, could name his number when the two teams meet Oct. 10 in Columbia. Fournette had 228 yards and three touchdowns in LSU's emphatic 45-21 victory over Auburn on Saturday. Beating Texas A&M and Tennessee on the road will prove very difficult considering the current physical and mental state of the Gamecocks. So, that leaves three swing games: at Missouri (Oct. 3), Florida (Nov. 14) and Clemson (Nov. 28). Barring an upset over LSU, Texas A&M or Tennessee (or being upset by UCF, Vandy or The Citadel), USC must win two of those three swing games to secure bowl eligibility.

1a. Palmetto Sunrise: Week of presidential candidate visits
Got presidential candidate fever? Well, you're in luck. Seven Republican candidates will be making their way through South Carolina, starting Tuesday. Catch Carly Fiorina at a national security forum at The Citadel at 12 p.m., on Tuesday. She'll later make her way to the Greater Lowcountry Republican Club, which meets at the Charleston County Club, at 1:30 p.m. A few hours later, she's expected at 5:30 p.m., at the Conservative Leadership Project forum in Myrtle Beach. Fiorina will continue her three-day swing through the Palmetto State on Wednesday at Hudson's Smokehouse BBQ in Lexington at 12:15 p.m., and later head to file to officially appear on the South Carolina Republican primary ballot at the state's Republican Party headquarters in Columbia at 1:45 p.m. By 6:30 p.m., she is expected at a town hall meeting in Rock Hill. During her last day in South Carolina, Fiorina will remain in the Upstate on Thursday.

1b. Four Things To Expect From Carly Fiorina, Between Now And The Next GOP Debate
In the politics of the Information Age, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Carly Fiorina's strong debate performance this past week is the stuff of instant gratification. There's this CNN/ORC national poll showing the former Hewlett-Packard CEO with 15% of the GOP pie - five times what she drew in August. A Voter Gravity poll released Friday had Fiorina ahead of the pack in New Hampshire. Even if, technically, she's not the Republican frontrunner (Donald Trump led the way in the national survey with 24% - that's down 8% from August), Fiorina's surge and second-place standing granted her top-tier treatment on Sunday - i.e., a leadoff interview on Fox News Sunday. On Saturday, Fiorina took part in the "Take America Back" cattle call in Greenville, S.C. On Tuesday, she's scheduled to attend a national security forum at The Citadel in Charleston. Over the next month, Fiorina won't lack for chances to draw cameras and offer her thoughts. The question is: will she add more policy heft to a campaign that so far has been largely defined by her unbridled disdain for Hillary Clinton? Figure it another way: though the candidates were on the stage for the better part of three hours Wednesday night, it was a shallow policy debate. CNN saw to that by running a show that, even Donald Trump had to admit, was too much Trump.

Today, the consensus winner of the Republican debate, Carly Fiorina, only on "Fox News Sunday." FIORINA: Live is not measured in time.

2. 150-year-old Civil War relic returns to Charleston
A Civil War relic has made its way home. A sword given to Col. Charles Courtenay Tew, the first ever graduate of The Citadel, returned to campus after being lost more than 150 years. "I couldn't believe after all these year's we had located Col. Tew's sword," Citadel President John Rosa said. Tew's family was invited to a ceremony held during The Citadel's weekly parade. Carolyn Sloan, Tew's great-great-granddaughter was asked to receive the relic. "I was very excited," Sloan said. "I couldn't believe it. We could not, it had been so long we did not believe this day would come." Col. Tew served in the Civil War. With the sword at his side, the Colonel died at the Battle of Antietam in Maryland. "This is sad but it was also, it is wonderful this has happened," Sloan said. Tew's great-great-grandson, John Sloan, was also at the ceremony. "This missing sword is something the family's been talking about for 150 years. When it finally turned up there was great joy," he said. "We're just happy to know where it is. We're happy with where the sword is ending up and 152-year-old mystery has been solved and the resolution is good."

3. Best College Reviews Names the Top 50 Colleges by the Sea
Best College Reviews, a ranking service for American colleges and universities, has released a list of the top 50 Colleges by the Sea. Data regarding distance to the nearest beach, recreational activities near the school, natural setting, and educational opportunities on or using the sea were all taken into consideration. The number and types of impressive universities in the United States is a testimony to the American pioneer spirit of discovery. The beach alone is an amazing place for many reasons; but, add to that an outstanding university, and you have a beautiful combination. Here at Best College Reviews we seek to find high quality schools in every thinkable category; knowing the importance the setting has to a good story is analogous of the location to a good school. Researching the top Colleges by the Sea seemed perfect to help students make the major choice of where to invest some of the most important years of life. Nick Plato, the article's author, said this about the list: "For myriads of souls the most tranquil, exciting, powerful, and human of experiences on the earth is found at the beach. With the vast sea, warm sandy beaches, bright sun, teeming creatures and natural beauty - adding a college experience to that can be a perfect combination of life-changing learning and leisure." The list of 50 schools includes: The Citadel - The Military College of South Carolina, Charleston, SC

4b. SCSU has reason to tout numbers on starting pay
Earning a college degree can increase a person's skill set, job prospects and net worth. But with rising college costs, from where the student chooses to get the degree can make a big difference. SmartAsset, a New York financial technology company, looked at five factors to determine the best value colleges and universities: tuition, student living costs, scholarship and grant offerings, retention rate and starting salary. With a goal of capturing the true cost of attending a school, SmartAsset included the tuition (using in-state tuition for public schools where applicable), student living costs (including room and board, books, supplies, transportation and other personal expenses) and the average scholarships and grants offered to students of the school. With average starting pay at $44,100, SCSU trails only The Citadel at $50,900 and Clemson at $49,000. It ranks ahead of fourth-place Furman at $41,400 and fifth-place USC at $41,300. But when matched with student retention rates of the other top five schools in salaries, S.C. State at 60 percent is much lower than The Citadel at 85 percent, Clemson at 92, and Furman and USC at 87. The South Carolina average is 65 percent.

5. Burke loses at Johnson Hagood Stadium, but hopes for return to Stoney Field
Unable to use its home stadium so far this season, the Burke High School Bulldogs played under the bright lights of The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium on Friday night. "It was a lot different," said the Bulldogs' junior quarterback, Sidney Robinson. "It was a great atmosphere and really got us hyped up." The Class A Bulldogs lost by 46-7 to undefeated Class AA Lake Marion before about 300 fans, dropping to 0-4 on the season. But the spotlight the past week has cast on unsafe conditions at Stoney Field, the 60-year-old home of Burke football, sparked hope that a long-term solution soon will be found. "I hope it does bring attention to Stoney Field," said Burke athletic director Wayne Alston, "and also a spotlight to the good things we are doing in our athletic department."

6. The Citadel falls to Georgia Southern 48-13
The Citadel football team fell to FBS opponent Georgia Southern on Saturday night 48-13 inside Allen E. Paulson Stadium. On the Bulldogs' (2-1) first drive, Dominique Allen's first pass of the game was tipped at the line of scrimmage and intercepted by Ross Alexander. The Eagles would start the drive at the 11-yard line but a tackle by James Riley on 3rd down would force Georgia Southern to kick a field goal, making it 3-0 a little over three minutes into the game. On their second drive of the game, Georgia Southern (2-1) would convert on 4th-and-1 on the Bulldogs' 11. Kevin Ellison eventually punched it in from one yard out to give the Eagles a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. After a three and out by the Bulldogs, Georgia Southern put together a couple of big runs and tacked on another six after a 25-yard run by Matt Breida. The Eagles would lead 17-0 with 12:35 left in the first half. Breida, who would rush for 159 yards in the game, would break free for an 87-yard touchdown run just a little under four minutes later to make it 24-0 Eagles with 8:43 left in the 2nd quarter. Ellison gave the Eagles a 31-0 lead after a nine-yard rushing touchdown and that is how the score would remain at the half.

The UNC Asheville women's volleyball team extended their winning streak to five games after defeating South Carolina State three sets to one to close out the UNCA Invitational. Asheville went undefeated throughout the tournament. "Coach told us this is our home. This is where we are comfortable and we came out on the aggressive side because we play here everyday. We know how to play here and honestly, I think that is what we did," said Catherine Fischer, junior UNCA volleyball player. "Some of the teams we played this weekend are really hard to play because we don't really know what is coming over the net. That just means we need to pay more attention to detail. He always preaches attention to detail but especially in these last two games today." The UNCA women's team heads to The Citadel this weekend for their next tournament. "The next team we play is The Citadel so we are feeling pretty happy about playing them again. It's also a lot of confidence coming into the next tournament. I think we feel like big dogs right now and it's great," Fischer said. "We need to take that positive energy and pride to the next tournament. We can beat anyone we play in the next few tournaments."

8b. Gamecocks quarterback Perry Orth beat the odds even before his first start
The high school was a new one, and it showed on the football field. Ponte Vedra had been broken off from Nease, the north Florida power that produced Tim Tebow, and head coach Mike Loyd's program won five games over its first two seasons. Then a kid named Perry Orth became his quarterback. "Perry immediately took us to 7-4. That easily could have been 9-2, but the kids didn't know how to win, and we didn't have a whole lot of talent," Loyd said. "Perry immediately made us better, made the kids believe they could win. The next year, we won 11 games in a row and came one game from playing for a state championship. Perry Orth did that." But in the minds of many major-college recruiters, it did. In one of their last meetings at Ponte Vedra, Orth told Loyd that he wanted to be a starting quarterback in the SEC. The head coach told him to pursue his dream. He could always transfer to a smaller school and play immediately if it didn't work out. "It came down to whether he wanted to play right away at a smaller school, or wait two or three years and fight for a job," said Orth's older brother Calvin, a former baseball player at The Citadel. "But it was always his dream to play Division I. South Carolina was the place where he wanted to be."

8c. Like his quarterback, Lehigh offensive coordinator Drew Folmar is starting to make his mark
It was a difficult situation for Drew Folmar. When the former head coach at Kutztown University was brought over to Lehigh prior to the 2014 season as offensive coordinator, Folmar was replacing a beloved figure in Dave Cecchini. Not only was Cecchini a star receiver at Lehigh in the early 1990s, an All-American who set numerous single-season and career pass-catching marks, but he also had two successful stints as an assistant coach on South Mountain. Cecchini's second stint came after stops at Harvard and The Citadel. He was Lehigh's offensive coordinator from 2010-13 when the Mountain Hawks went 39-9 and had one of the top-25 passing offenses in the country every season.

The Bulldogs' third game of the season was at Georgia Southern, just down the road from where he grew up in Richmond Hill. "Once I saw we were playing Georgia Southern at Georgia Southern, I was really excited about it," Allen said. "It was just a really good chance to come back and see all the friends and family at home." Allen's parents, James and Tammie, and his younger brother Isiah, a seventh-grader at Richmond Hill Middle, were at Paulson Stadium for the game Saturday night. So were grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and former coaches. In all, Allen had a cheering section of about 30 people for his return home.

9. Henry Dale Smith, Sr. Obituary
Visionary healthcare provider, committed pharmacist, and dedicated family man, Henry Dale Smith, Sr., passes at age 87. Henry Dale Smith, Sr., 87, of Springfield, died peacefully on Saturday morning, Sept. 19, 2015, among family at home. He was born Aug. 1, 1928 to James Matthew and Ethel Rickbiel Smith in Asheville, N.C. He married Betty Mood Smith on June 28, 1950, in Columbia, S.C. Beginning his education at The Citadel in June of 1944, he started just weeks after his high school graduation. World War II dominated life then and, because South Carolina schools ended with the 11th grade and Smith had skipped one year, he was only 15 and too young for military service.

1. Lost Civil War sword returns to The Citadel
The lost sword of The Citadel's first honor graduate has been returned. The sword belonged to Capt. Charles Courtney Tew, and it was taken away after he was killed in one of the first battles of the American Civil War. Tew was also the first president of the Alumni Association in 1852 and the first Citadel alumnus to be declared missing in action. The sword was given to Captain Tew by his fellow cadets in 1858. When he was wounded at the Battle of Antietam in Maryland, it's believed that a Union solider took it. You can find pictures of Tew holding the sword in The Citadel Library. Before the sword came back to The Citadel, it was in an Odd Fellows' lodge in Ohio, in the possession of a Canadian solider and was later turned over to a Canadian regiment. Director of Daniel Library Citadel Archive and Museums David Gobel is thankful to have the sword back home. "We got a call from a gentleman, Mike Martin, of the 33 Signal Regiment in Ottawa, Canada and he explained that they had the sword and they wanted to bring it back to us," says Gobel. "That's one of the parts of the story that's so amazing because the Canadians, they didn't have to do this." The sword is now permanent property of The Citadel.

5. Still No Democratic Debates. What's Going On?
Why are the Democrats letting Republicans have the attention? Why are they hiding their candidates? The party has taken itself out of the game, and more and more people are asking why. As of this date in 2007 there had already been several Democratic debates. The first debate was April 26, 2007, at South Carolina State University, Orangeburg, South Carolina. Present were Senator Joseph Biden, Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Christopher Dodd, John Edwards, Mike Gravel, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Senator Barack Obama, Governor William Richardson and the debate was moderated by Brian Williams. Afterward Democrats debated at these events: -June 3, 2007 at Saint Anselm College, Goffstown, New Hampshire. -June 28, 2007 at Howard University, Washington, D.C. -July 12, 2007 at the NAACP convention, Detroit. -July 23, 2007 at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

6. Speech Regulators Reach Apex of Absurdity
In honor of the 228th birthday of the U.S. Constitution, let's hear it for the First Amendment! Although, in some circles, the freedom of religion, speech, the press, to assemble, or to petition the government are not cause for celebration. National Constitution Day is designated as September 17. On this day in 1787, George Washington, president of the Constitutional Convention, signed and dated the proposal that the new constitution be submitted to the Convention of Delegates for each state in the union. The Bill of Rights was not adopted until December 15, 1791. The erudite Founders, men and women of strong intellect and moral discipline viewed free speech as a natural right. In their fallible humanity, they were the greatest generation of Americans. My, how times have changed, as well as the notions of "rights" and "education" and "truth." Written by Paige Lewis is an adjunct history professor and freelance writer in Charleston, S.C. She graduated Queens College in Charlotte, N.C. with a B.A. in history and drama, with a minor in political science. She earned her master's degree in American history from the University of Charleston and The Citadel joint graduate studies program.

The last LSU starting quarterback to lose his home opener was Josh Booty in a 31-10 loss to Florida on Oct. 9, 1999. In 13 seasons, here are the 11 LSU quarterbacks who started home openers with the score and their statistics, which include just four interceptions: -Sept. 7, 2002: Matt Mauck, The Citadel, 35-10, 8-of-18, 90 yards, 1 INT.

1. Give locals power to change monuments, senator says
State Sen. Darrell Jackson plans to pre-file legislation to allow local governments, school districts and colleges to rename or change historical monuments in their jurisdiction. The Richland County Democrat also wants S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson, a Republican, to issue an opinion on the constitutionality of part of the Heritage Act. That part requires a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to alter specific monuments and memorials or rename streets. "There are people who feel strongly that the constitutionality of that legislation is very questionable," Jackson said. Republican Gov. Nikki Haley urged lawmakers to remove the Confederate flag from the State House grounds after the racially motivated slaying of nine African-Americans in June, including state Sen. Clementa Pinckney. The House and Senate voted to furl the flag in July. Now, some want other monuments removed, including a State House statue of white supremacist "Pitchfork" Ben Tillman, a former S.C. governor and U.S. senator who was a member of a post-Civil War militia responsible for lynching African-Americans. Others want the Tillman name removed from buildings at Clemson and Winthrop universities. If Jackson's proposal becomes law, the colleges could act without the Legislature's approval. The Citadel also could remove a Confederate naval jack from a campus chapel. A Greenwood war memorial that separates slain soldiers by race also could be changed at the local level.

2. Palmetto Sunrise: What to expect from the presidential debate
The second Republican presidential debate is almost here. In just a few hours, at 8 p.m., 11 candidates will participate in the CNN Republican Primary Debate, where immigration is set to be one of the biggest issues discussed. What else can you expect? "I suppose it depends on whatever mood Donald Trump is in at that point," said Scott Buchanan, a political science professor at The Citadel, when we spoke to him last week. Things to look out for: 1. Donald Trump has maintained his lead in the polls, despite talk from national politicos that voters "get serious" about candidates after Labor Day. Will he talk more of policy today or will he take more jabs at the rest of the candidates and celebrities? 2. Ben Carson has gained a lot of traction in the polls. In New York Times/CBS News poll released Tuesday, 23 percent of Republican primary voters support Carson. That's up from a mere six percent in July. 3. While Carson gained, Jeb Bush tanked. That same New York Times/CBS News poll has Bush down to six percent from 13 percent in August and July. Support for Scott Walker, who was once in the double digits, has also dropped from 10 to 2 percent.

3. Miss America's boyfriend is a Monroe deputy
Monroe Countians probably know by now that Betty Cantrell of Warner Robins was named Miss America on Sunday, becoming just the second Miss Georgia ever to win the title. But they may not know that her boyfriend, Spencer Maxwell, is a Monroe County sheriff's deputy. Sheriff John Cary Bittick said Maxwell is a very good young man with great parents, and said he's "smart, articulate and professional." Maxwell came to work at the sheriff's office right after graduating from The Citadel in Charleston. He is on the sheriff's office's SRT and Honor Guard. He has worked there about 1 1/2 years and has worked in Detention and now is in the Patrol Div.

4. Georgia Southern on guard against The Citadel
Willie Fritz has never coached against The Citadel, but he's aware of how the Bulldogs have been a thorn in the side of Georgia Southern through the years. And, the Eagles' head coach is also aware of how FCS schools have pulled off upsets or near misses this season. His former team, Sam Houston State, for example, pushed Texas Tech to the limit before losing 59-45. Jacksonville State took Auburn to overtime last weekend, and Portland State beat Washington State a couple of weeks ago. Georgia Southern (1-1) holds a dominating 18-5 advantage in the series, but in the past eight meetings, only one game has been decided by more than seven points. Five have been by four or fewer. So there's little chance the Eagles will be looking past the Bulldogs (2-0) when the two former Southern Conference rivals meet at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Paulson Stadium. "The last four times we've faced them, we lost one, and the other three were close," Fritz said. "We've got guys who have played against them, and they know how good they are."

6. Burke High football games to be played at Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium
Home field advantage is huge for a football team, but now that Burke High School's stadium is in disrepair and unsafe to play on, the Bulldogs need to find somewhere else to play. Tonight, SC State Representative Wendell Gilliard hosted a rally to help save Burke's Stoney Field. Gilliard says he met with officials from Burke High and from the Citadel and is working out a deal to let the Burke Bulldogs play their home games at the same stadium as The Citadel Bulldogs. A lot of Burke students are upset their football team won’t have a true home field this season. Burke freshman and member of the marching band, Terrace Drayton, said, "Everybody is used to playing at Stoney Field especially when we have to march and do pregame and halftime. It just won't feel right." Officials say constant flooding, dated buildings and unsafe conditions on the field are to blame.

1. Senator questioning constitutionality of state's Heritage Act
A state senator is questioning the constitutionality of the state law that has prevented The Citadel from removing the Confederate Naval Jack banner from its Summerall Chapel. Sen. Darrell Jackson, D-Hopkins, asked Attorney General Alan Wilson's office to issue an opinion on whether it's constitutional for the Heritage Act to require a two-thirds vote from the General Assembly to make any changes to war monuments or memorials on government-owned property. The flip side is that if Wilson says it's unconstitutional, and the courts agree, a simple majority in the Legislature could in the future vote to again fly the battle flag - or any other flag - on the Statehouse grounds.

2. Coastal Carolina University drops in "Best College" rankings
Coastal Carolina University dropped a few spots overall in the latest edition of U.S. News and World Report's "Best Colleges" rankings, but gained some points in the best value category. The report, which was released last week, placed CCU in the No. 63 spot on the list of Best Regional Universities (South division). CCU tied with St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens, Fla. for its ranking, which is six spots lower than last year. "For the past several years, Coastal's ranking has been in the upper 50's and lower 60's," said Ralph Byington, provost and executive vice president at CCU. "When you break down the scores of the schools that are around us in the rankings, the results are very close." The university ranked No. 57 last year and No. 62 in 2013. CCU ranks sixth in South for Best Value School, which is three spots higher than last year's ranking of No. 9. Converse College in Spartanburg and The Citadel in Charleston ranked third and fifth, respectively. The university reached No. 26 in Top Public Schools in the South. Winthrop University in Rock Hill claimed the eighth spot, College of Charleston nabbed No. 4 and The Citadel scored the top spot for Top Public School in the South.

Head coach Mike Houston addressed the media about the upcoming game against Georgia Southern, along with junior linebacker Dondray Copeland and junior wide reciever Jorian Jordan. "Thanks to everyone for coming this week. Obviously it was a very enjoyable weekend for the Bulldogs this weekend at home in Johnson Hagood Stadium. We're very pleased with the way our team competed and played on Saturday night against Western Carolina and we're really excited about the support we got from the Corps and the fans. It was a pretty electric stadium on Saturday night and our kids fed off of that." "Obviously it wasn't a perfect game. We made several mistakes that we will be able to go to film and look at. That's very encouraging because to play as well as we did and still see a lot of room for improvement shows that we aren't close to peaking early in the season. I shared with the team that we want this to be the beginning of a climb towards our ultimate goals at the end of the season."

5. Georgia Southern faces familiar foe in The Citadel
The Georgia Southern Eagles are coming off a dominating 43-17 performance against Western Michigan on Saturday, and this week they are set to take on a familiar foe in The Citadel. The Eagles and the Bulldogs played in the same conference up until last year when the Eagles left the Southern Conference to move up to the FBS level and the Sun Belt Conference. While conference position is no longer on the line in this game, the Eagles are looking to maintain their momentum. Georgia Southern has dominated The Citadel, leading the all-time series 18-5, but six of the seven meetings since 2007 and all but one game was decided by seven points or fewer. "There have been a lot of close games between these teams," Eagles head coach Willie Fritz said. The Eagles are taking this game seriously because of the close calls in the past. In the past two meetings, each team has come away with a victory. The Eagles lost on the road at the Citadel 23-21 in 2012. In 2013, The Eagles beat the Bulldogs 28-21 at home.

6. Mainland product Kailik Williams emerging as key player on The Citadel's defense
Kailik Williams admits his first year at The Citadel wasn't easy. Really though, the first year - known as the "Knob" year - at the military college in Charleston, South Carolina has rarely, if ever, been referred to as "easy." "It was a big shock," Williams said. "The adjustments I had to make were tough." "You have to be disciplined, and do what you are told." But, for Williams, the need to adjust also carried over to the playing field. The 5-foot-11, 190 pounder was attempting to make the transition from high school linebacker, he was the 2013 News-Journal's defensive player of the year after collecting 170 tackles - 19 for loss - and seven sacks as a senior at Mainland, to college safety.

7. For Citadel, ex-SoCon rival Georgia Southern now a "money game"
The Citadel and Georgia Southern have met 24 times on the football field, with the last eight games decided by an average of just six points. The Eagles' first Southern Conference game was a 16-6 win over The Citadel in 1993; the last time the teams played in Charleston, The Citadel won by 23-21. But when the Bulldogs and Eagles meet for the 25th time on Saturday in Statesboro, Ga., the game will be unlike any in the series that dates back to 1988. Georgia Southern, which won six national championships and 10 SoCon titles as an FCS team, has moved up to the FBS level and the Sun Belt Conference. That makes this a so-called "money game" for The Citadel, which will collect a check for $175,000 for Saturday's game. It's one of two games against FBS foes this season for The Citadel, which also plays at South Carolina on Nov. 21.

The University of South Carolina's International Business program in the Darla Moore School of Business is ranked No. 1 nationally for the 18th straight year. The Citadel is No. 1 among public regional colleges in the South for the fifth straight year - with the College of Charleston No. 4 in that category.

4a. Austrian Economics, Monetary Freedom, and America's Economic Roller Coaster
For over a decade, now, the American economy has been on an economic rollercoaster, of an economic boom between 2003 and 2008, followed by a severe economic downturn, and with a historically slow and weak recovery starting in 2009 up to the present. Before the dramatic stock market decline of 2008-2009, many were the political and media pundits who were sure that the "good times" could continue indefinitely, including some members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, America's central bank. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

5c. Friday, 11, September 2015
Earlier this summer, I had the distinct pleasure of being able to reconnect with an old acquaintance from the United States who I had not seen for nearly twenty years. John A. Boland III graduated from The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, in 1968. The only reason he did not serve in Vietnam (where many of his friends and classmates served with distinction, and some made the ultimate sacrifice) was because he is legally blind in one eye. After graduating from The Citadel John went on to a very successful career in the business world, and when I met him in Montreal in the mid-1990's, he was CEO of Dominion Textile, a company for which I once did some consulting work.

6. Bulldogs Explode for Four Goals in Win
The Citadel earned its first win of the season 4-0 Sunday at W.L.I. Field against Francis Marion. Ana Da Costa got the Bulldogs (1-7) on the board in the first half after punching one in from inside the six-yard box after a kick from midfield was saved by the keeper. The Citadel would take a 1-0 lead into halftime after holding the Patriots (1-7) to five shots. The offense continued to click in the second half as the Bulldogs scored three goals in seven minutes. Ray Brown tallied her first goal of the season after receiving the pass from Emilie Valenciano and firing it into the left corner of the net. Andrea Davila would notch her second goal of the season one minute later after receiving the ball from Katherine Arroyo. Arroyo also collected her second goal and assist this season after scoring in the 76th minute.

8. Charleston RiverDogs season summation
Charleston was a fun team to watch for most of the season. One of the interesting things about the way the Yankees handled their Low-A roster is that most of the guys who played well early got promoted right around the middle of the season. In the past the Yankees have not been so aggressive. For this reason, however, many of the players who did well for Charleston will be highlighted in the Tampa Yankees season summation, which is up next (unless Staten Island finishes their season soon). Bo Thompson - 1B, 5-foot-10, 255-pounds, RHB, 22 - Thompson was drafted in the 13th round out of The Citadel. He is a large and in charge kind of dude, and he did pretty well when given the opportunity in Charleston. When Connor Spencer went down with an injury he came in and hit .253/.387/.348/.734 in his first professional season. He only hit three homeruns and 13 doubles though, and he's going to need to hit more extra base hits if he wants to make it at his position and size.

Sophomore libero Jessie Thornton of the Wright State volleyball team has been selected as the Horizon League Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending September 13, it was announced Monday by the league office.

1. Canada to return Civil War commander's lost sword to Citadel
A single sword unites The Citadel with South Carolina's Governor's Mansion, the 33 Signal Regiment of the Canadian Army and the single bloodiest day in U.S. military history. And it's coming home soon. Ever since Confederate Col. Charles Courtenay Tew was killed at Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862, his descendants have searched for one of his most valued possessions, a sword given to him by his former students. It's no average weapon, and its historical significance resonates especially in the Palmetto State. Not only was Tew The Citadel's first valedictorian and first president of its alumni association, but the sword was given to him by cadets at The Arsenal, a Columbia military academy that was The Citadel's sister institution. The Arsenal was burned by Union troops near the end of the Civil War, never reopened, and its sole surviving building now serves as the Governor's Mansion.

2a. Citadel again named top public school in South, CofC named No. 4
For the fifth consecutive year, The Citadel was named the No. 1 public school in the South for institutions granting up to a master's degree by U.S. News and World Report. The military college also ranked No. 3 on the report's list of best colleges for veterans in the South and No. 22 on the undergraduate engineering program rankings for schools without a doctoral program. "I am very proud of our cadets, students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors who contributed to this recognition," Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa said in a statement. "We continue to focus on our mission to educate and develop principled leaders for all walks of life so needed in the world today." U.S. News and World Report released its 2016 Best Colleges rankings on Wednesday. Data from nearly 1,800 colleges were analyzed to rank 1,376 schools, the company said. Rankings are determined based on assessments by administrators at peer institutions, retention of students, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving, graduation rate performance and other data.

2b. S.C. colleges and universities earn top rankings from U.S. News & World Report
Twenty-one South Carolina colleges and universities made appearances in the latest school rankings from U.S News & World Report. The Citadel was ranked No. 3 among regional universities in the South, the College of Charleston was tied at No. 11 in the same category, and Charleston Southern University was tied at No. 93. For purposes of the rankings, regional universities are defined as offering "a broad scope of undergraduate degrees and some master's degree programs but few, if any, doctoral programs," according to the U.S. News & World Report website. Clemson University was tied at No. 61 among national universities, and the University of South Carolina came in at No. 108. The Medical University of South Carolina, which also appears on the latest national hospital rankings from U.S. News & World Report, is tied for No. 28 among nursing graduate schools, tied for No. 60 among full research medical schools, and tied for No. 78 among primary care medical schools. The Citadel is touting its fifth consecutive year ranked as the No. 1 public regional university in the South. Mark Bebensee, associate provost for academic affairs at The Citadel, said the school does not actively seek to boost its ranking, but the No. 1 spot is "nice affirmation," particularly because part of the ranking formula is based on peer reviews from leaders at other schools. "I think a lot of times potential students and parents are using things like U.S. News & World Report rankings to get some idea about the potential value that they’re about to spend money for," Bebensee said.

2c. The Citadel named No. 1 College in the South for 5th consecutive year
The Citadel is celebrating a US News & World Report quinquennial. The 2016 version of one of the most respected college ranking services was released at midnight on Sept. 9, naming The Citadel the US News & World Report No. 1 Public College in the South for the fifth consecutive year (offering up to a master's degree). That's a quinquennial. What does that mean? When deciding where a student should attend college, many families turn to the US News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings. What The Citadel's quinquennial means is that US News & World Report, one of the world's leading providers of news and information, recognizes the quality and the value of a Citadel education, year after year. There are many college rankings on the internet, but US News & World Report was one of the originators. "We do it to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life," according to a statement on the service's website.

3a. They were very young, but the South Carolina Corps of Cadets remembers
Where were you on September 11th? The majority of cadets at The Citadel were still in elementary school on that fateful day in 2001, but no matter how old, almost every American over the age of fourteen has a story to share about where they were when the unimaginable happened. On the fourteenth anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks against the United States, the Corps of Cadets came together in a show of pure patriotism. More than 1,500 cadets voluntarily gathered on Summerall Field on a hot Charleston Friday afternoon to show their respects to the lives lost in the collapse of the Twin Towers and on Flight 93. In unison, the cadets conducted pushups, sit-ups, and squats - one for every life lost in the attacks - followed by a run which was led by the Regimental Commander Jimmy Urban, and the Nation's Colors.

4a. Security at Guantanamo Bay could be replicated at Naval Brig, experts say
Graduate students from the University of South Carolina traveled to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba during spring break, working and playing within sight of Camp America, where terrorist detainees are held. The scholars' mission? "Capture everyday life in this clearly extraordinary place," said Allison Marsh, assistant professor in the USC Department of History. Dr. Brian Norris, assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at The Citadel, said the "Not-in-my-backyard" reaction is nearly universal when it comes to prisons. "Attitudes of nearby communities tend to change over time as security concerns do not materialize, and the benefits of employment become evident," he said. Periodically changing prison personnel discourages corruption. Federal authorities, especially the military, excel at being able to rotate personnel to keep them loyal to the institution, he said. Norris has extensively studied prisons in Latin America. Drug lords fear extradition to the U.S. because they are less powerful when they are removed from their local networks. The Gitmo detainees, he noted, are already far removed from their base of support. The situation would be the same at the Navy brig, he said.

4b. South Carolina voters want Lindsey Graham to drop presidential bid
A cellphone-smashing feud with Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump and three months crisscrossing the nation on the campaign trail have not been kind to South Carolina's native son. When U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham announced his bid for the White House, he and his supporters assumed he could count on a good showing in his home state's "First in the South" Republican primary. But it's not looking good. A poll by Public Policy Poling released Wednesday revealed 78 percent of likely primary voters said Graham should drop out of the race, while 15 percent said he should continue his bid. That's likely because Graham has so far done so poorly in polls that his showing has fed a "what's the point" view among South Carolina's Republicans, said Scott Buchanan a political science professor at The Citadel. "I think Republicans are more concerned about getting this field dwindled down to more manageable numbers," Buchanan added. "It's implausible, at best, that Graham picks up much more steam at this point."

6a. III Marine Expeditionary Force / Marine Corps Installations Pacific
Lt. Gen. John Wissler has been arguably the busiest man in the Marine Corps' most active unit during the past two and a half years. In an area where approximately seventy percent of the world's natural disasters occur, III Marine Expeditionary Force continually prepares and responds to events like the earthquake that ravaged Nepal in April. All the while, III MEF maintains strategic partnerships with its allies, such as South Korea and Australia, while continuing to enhance the stability and prosperity of the region. Suffice to say, leading III MEF involves many moving parts. As Wissler relinquished command of III MEF to Lt. Gen. Larry D. Nicholson during a change of command ceremony here at Camp Foster today, he fulfilled a promise he made the day he came aboard. "We always say there is only one reason we have a Marine Corps, and that Congress expects us to be most ready when the nation is least ready," said Nicholson, a native of Toronto, Canada, who graduated from The Citadel, Charleston, South Carolina, in 1979. "I certainly understand the enormous responsibility that Marines and Sailors have, and I am looking forward to being a part of the MEF team." As Wissler, a native from Camp Pendleton, California, heads stateside and awaits his next assignment, he considers what the III MEF Marines accomplished over the past two and a half years.

6e. Johnson speaks to Orangeburg Touchdown Club about coaching and career memories
Ellis Johnson, former Citadel football player and head coach, Clemson defensive coordinator, South Carolina defensive coordinator and Auburn defensive coodinator, served as the guest speaker for this week's meeting of the Orangeburg Touchdown Club. Speaking of memories, Coach Johnson had a few to share with the OTC, including ones from his playing days at The Citadel all the way up to him calling the now-famous Kick Six set-up for Auburn to return a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown to win the 2013 Iron Bowl rivalry game against Alabama. Johnson, a Winnsboro native, is currently unemployed, taking a break from coaching, and living in Columbia (where he was defensive coordinator for Steve Spurrier from 2008 through 2011, during which time he successfully recruited the nation's top-ranked player, Jadaveon Clowney). "I've moved 14 times during my coaching career (spanning the last 40 years); I've got a pension in the state of South Carolina and a pension in the state of Alabama," Johnson said. "I'm very fortunate."

6g. Young Marines land in Fairview Park
The Marines have landed in Fairview Park. The Young Marines, that is. Founded in 1958, the Young Marines are an education and service program for boys and girls ages 8 to 18 that teaches leadership, teamwork and self-discipline. Although not a recruiting arm of the U.S. Military, the nonprofit organization is the official youth program of the U.S. Marine Corps. Alfredo Mercedes, a Lakewood High School senior, has been in the Young Marines program for three-and-a-half years. He recently enlisted in the Marines Corps Reserve for service after graduation and has applied for admission to The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. "The Young Marines motivates you to become something higher and better," Mercedes told West Life, adding that many activities are led by the more experienced members. Like Mercedes, Michael Dulin, an Olmsted Falls High School sophomore, has achieved the rank of gunnery sergeant, the seventh of 11 ranks conferred by the Young Marines. He explained that while the organization uses aspects of military training to instill leadership and discipline, it's not anywhere close to the demands of Marine recruit training.

7a. The Citadel scores 3 TDs late to beat Western Carolina 28-10
Evan McField and Dominique Allen scored back-to-back touchdowns in the fourth quarter and The Citadel defeated Western Carolina 28-10 in a Southern Conference opener on Saturday night. Jorian Jordan fell on a teammate's fumble in the end zone as the third quarter ended, and the Bulldogs (2-0, 1-0, Southern) needed the late rally to defeat the Catamounts (1-1, 0-1), after blanking Davidson 69-0 last week. The Bulldogs opened the second half with a fumble that resulted in a quick Western Carolina TD. Detrez Newsome (121 yards) scored from the 1 two plays after bursting up the middle on a 42-yard gain to give the Catamounts a 10-7 lead. The ball bounced The Citadel's way after that. Jordan's fumble recovery gave the Bulldogs a 14-10 lead. McField had a 3-yard touchdown run before Mark Thomas recovered a Western Carolina fumble, setting up Allen's score.

7b. Citadel Notes: New Citadel QB Dominique Allen off to solid start
Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen will be making just his second college start in Saturday's showdown with Western Carolina. But the Bulldogs' sophomore did get some snaps in last year's 29-15 loss to the Catamounts. How did that go? "That was my first conference game, and we started off with a few penalties," said Allen, who entered that game when starter Aaron Miller was dinged up. "I think there were four penalties, one of which got us a first down, and then a fumble." The sequence actually went false start, holding, defensive holding on WCU and then a lost fumble for the Bulldogs. Fortunately for The Citadel, Allen played a much cleaner game in his first college start, last week's 69-0 rout of Davidson. The 6-1, 214-pound Allen ran 11 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns, and hit all five of his passes for 67 yards and another score, a 17-yard pass to Jorian Jordan.

7c. Citadel Notes: Mitchell Jeter comes up huge for Bulldogs
Citadel defensive tackle Mitchell Jeter was credited with just four tackles in Saturday's 28-10 win over Western Carolina, but it seemed like every one was huge for the Bulldogs. Jeter, a 6-0, 275-pound senior from Rock Hill, had two tackles for loss and a sack, and set the tone for the Bulldogs’ defense on a goal-line stand in the first half. With The Citadel clinging to a 7-0 lead in the second quarter, Jeter knifed into the WCU backfield on fourth and 1 at the Bulldogs' 2-yard line, stuffing Detrez Newsome for a 1-yard loss. That play signaled that this game would be more of a street fight than last year's track meet at Western Carolina, when the Catamounts racked up 633 yards in a 29-15 victory.

His TFL on a Western Carolina 4th and 1 at The Citadel's 2-yard line was a crucial play early in the contest. "He's one of the better defensive linemen in the league, and he showed that tonight," Citadel coach Mike Houston told the Charleston Post and Courier's Jeff Hartsell. Hartsell's article mentioned that Jeter is now fifth on The Citadel's career sacks list with 13.5. He passed Fort Mill's Chris Billingslea on Saturday.

But that visit to Gainesville, Fla., also came with ancillary benefits - namely, Bulldogs linebacker Tevin Floyd. The well-publicized game between The Citadel and Tim Tebow's Gators was the first time that Floyd, then a high school freshman in Tallahassee, Fla., had heard of Charleston's military school. Seven years later, Citadel coach Mike Houston is grateful that his predecessor, Kevin Higgins, followed up on that Florida trip by recruiting Floyd, now a 6-1, 234-pound junior and a leader of the Bulldogs' defense. "My only regret," Houston said, "is that they couldn't redshirt Tevin when he was a freshman, so I'd have three years with him instead of two."

7g. Western Carolina will play at Citadel in league opener
Western Carolina will open the Southern Conference portion of its football schedule Saturday with a 6 p.m. game at Citadel's Johnson-Hagood Stadium. The Bulldogs' triple option game was in high gear during last week's 69-0 rout of Davidson. "Citadel played a very efficient and flawless game," WCU Coach Mark Speir said. "When you beat a team 69-0, you're doing about as good as you can. They are always tough to prepare for. It's going to be a huge test for our football team." Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen completed all five of his pass attempts for 67 yards and ran for 81 yards. Evan McField and Isiaha Smith rushed for 132 and 109 yards, respectively, against the Wildcats.

7h. RHHS graduate shines in debut
Former Richmond Hill High School standout Dominique Allen shined in his first game as The Citadel's starting quarterback. Allen rushed for 81 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries and completed all five of his pass attempts for 67 yards and a touchdown as the Bulldogs crushed Davidson 69-0 Saturday in Charleston. "There were definitely some nerves," Allen said, "but in my head I just went out there and told myself, 'You've done this before. You've played football all your life, go out there and have fun and everything will take care of itself.'" Allen, a sophomore, scored the first rushing touchdown of his collegiate career on The Citadel's opening possession. His 4-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-2 started the Bulldogs on their way to a 21-0 first-quarter lead.

Erin Leonard is doing an outstanding job and we look forward to racing the Cougars again in a few weeks." College of Charleston took the women's 5k heat as well, with The Citadel finishing fourth behind Towson and Pfeiffer.

1a. The Citadel named No. 1 College in the South for 5th consecutive year
The Citadel is celebrating a US News & World Report quinquennial. The 2016 version of one of the most respected college ranking services was releasedquin at midnight on Sept. 9, naming The Citadel the US News & World Report No. 1 Public College in the South for the fifth consecutive year (offering up to a master's degree). That's a quinquennial. What does that mean? When deciding where a student should attend college, many families turn to the US News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings. What The Citadel's quinquennial means is that US News & World Report, one of the world's leading providers of news and information, recognizes the quality and the value of a Citadel education, year after year. There are many college rankings on the internet, but US News & World Report was one of the originators. "We do it to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life," according to a statement on the service's website.

5. The Citadel readies for 'huge' early matchup with Western Carolina
It's only the second week of the season, and it's the Southern Conference opener for both The Citadel and Western Carolina. But the stakes in this one are so obvious that Western Carolina coach Mark Speir is not even trying to sell the usual "they all count the same" line of coach- speak. "It's a huge game, to play this early," said Speir, whose Catamounts take on The Citadel at 6 p.m. Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "There's still that unknown of where we both truly are. It's a high-stakes game to get off to a great start in the Southern Conference." It's a matchup of a Western Carolina team that's perceived to be a SoCon title contender this season, picked to finish as high as second in the league after a 7-5 overall finish and 5-2 SoCon mark last year; and a Citadel team that would like to think it's a contender after going 5-7 and 3-4 in 2014. "We have an amazing opportunity this weekend," said Citadel coach Mike Houston, whose team clubbed non-scholarship Davidson by 69-0 last week. "But we'll certainly see a steep upgrade in competition."

6. WCU travels to The Citadel to open league play on Saturday, Sept. 12
Western Carolina fourth-year head coach Mark Speir spent time with members of the media on Tuesday morning on the weekly Southern Conference Football Head Coaches' Teleconference. Speir reflected upon his squad's 42-14, season-opening home victory over Mars Hill before turning his attention to this week's game, the first Southern Conference game of 2015 as his squad visits The Citadel. "We were excited, number one, to get a win over a good football team," Speir opened his time on the teleconference in referencing last Saturday's home victory. "It was a great day in Cullowhee. We had a packed house as our Catamount faithful came out in big numbers over the Labor Day weekend. And to be able to start the season off with a good win in front of a home and an excited crowd was great." Western Carolina scored on its first play from scrimmage in 2015 - a 75-yard halfback pass from Detrez Newsome to Spearman Robinson - in the strong 42-14 victory over the Lions. All three running backs that split reps in the backfield scored touchdowns including two from senior Darius Ramsey, with quarterback Troy Mitchell accounting for 360 (298 passing, 62 rushing) of WCU's 583 yards of offense in the season-opening victory.

To say that we enjoyed the Carolina Gamecock's first game would be putting it mildly. While it was chiefly a defense-against-defense battle from start to finish, the fact that our defense prevailed made the lack of significant offensive prowess bearable. Later Saturday afternoon, both Clemson and The Citadel quite literally ruled their gridiron contests. Then, the SCSU Bulldogs waited until second half to show Alabama who was "king of the pack."

The Rams posted a 5-0 victory over The Citadel on Friday, marking the team's best offensive output since 2006 and the largest margin of victory since 2003. Then on Sunday, Fordham worked its way through two lightning delays and some rain to pull out a 1-0 win over the College of Charleston. William & Mary is the top-ranked team in the Mid-Atlantic region, followed by Northeastern, Hofstra, Dartmouth, James Madison, Rhode Island, Harvard, Saint Joseph's, Fordham, and Duquesne.

9. 2015-16 College Basketball Preview: East Tennessee State Buccaneers
Last season, East Tennessee State was supposed to be one of the teams back in the fold challenging for a league title in their first season back in the Southern Conference in a decade. Instead, the Bucs were battling in the middle of the pack, and after getting ousted in the opening round of the Southern Conference Tournament by Western Carolina, it was time for a change in leadership. The Bucs finished the regular-season fifth in the Southern Conference, with a 16-13 overall record and a 8-10 record in Southern Conference play. The Bulldogs struggled down the stretch in the 2014-15 season, losing their final two games in the league by a combined two points to The Citadel (L, 74-73) and Mercer (L, 61-60). The Bucs were in all their conference games, with their worst loss coming to eventual champion Wofford, losing 74-64, in Spartanburg in early February.

1. Fallen Citadel graduate honored in classroom dedication
The legacy of U.S. Army Capt. Dan Eggers lives on at his alma mater after family, friends and alumni gathered to dedicate a classroom in his honor. Eggers, a member of the Class of 1997, was killed in action in Afghanistan on May 29, 2004, when his vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device while returning to his Kabul base. He was a Green Beret detachment commander assigned to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Senior Army officials made sure that he would be remembered by naming the Kabul compound Camp Eggers in honor of his duty and sacrifice. Camp Eggers served as a pivotal base throughout its time in use from 2004-14 in the global war on terrorism and Operation Enduring Freedom with hundreds of Citadel graduates passing through the base. "This is the tie between Camp Eggers and The Citadel. The plaque had to be brought home," said Lt. Col. Rebecca Eggers, his widow. Now that the compound has closed, the plaque commemorating Eggers has been given to The Citadel. The ceremony held on Sept. 5 unveiled a new plaque, presented to the Eggers family, dedicating the senior Army ROTC classroom in the name of Eggers' sacrifices. All senior Army ROTC cadets will pass through this room before commissioning in the footsteps of the late Eggers.

The attempt to establish a comprehensive socialist system in many parts of the world over the last one hundred years has been one of the cruelest and most brutal episodes in human history. Some historians have estimated that as many as 200 million people may have died as part of the dream of creating a collectivist "Paradise on Earth." Making a better "new world" was taken to mean the extermination, the liquidation, the mass murder of all those that the socialist revolutionary leaders declared to be "class enemies," including the families, the children of "enemies of the people." Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

3a. The Citadel gets 69-0 win over Davidson
Behind three first-quarter touchdowns, The Citadel football team earned a 69-0 shutout win over Davidson in the 2015 season opener Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Citadel (1-0) broke the program record for points scored in an opener, breaking the previous record of 64 set in a 64-10 win vs. Charleston Southern in 2003. The last time the Bulldogs recorded a shutout in their season opener was a 38-0 win vs. Wofford in 1987. It was also the first shutout since a 76-0 win vs. Weber International in 2007, a span of 89 games. Tonight marked the first shutout of an FCS opponent since a 21-0 win vs. Elon in 2005, a span of 102 games. The Citadel improved to 5-0 under head coach Mike Houston when scoring first and when gaining more than 500 yards of total offense. Four Bulldogs made their first collegiate start Saturday quarterback Dominique Allen, defensive lineman Jonathan King, bandit Dondray Copeland and cornerback Mariel Cooper. Offensive lineman Sam Frye started his team-leading 25th consecutive game.

3b. Citadel Notes: Isiaha Smith, Evan McField give Bulldogs 1-2 punch
About a week ago, Citadel coach Mike Houston said that redshirt freshman Evan McField was slightly ahead of sophomore Isiaha Smith at the fullback position so crucial to the Bulldogs' triple-option offense. This, even though Smith ran for 591 yards and five touchdowns a year ago while McField was on the scout team. "But," Houston said, "Isiaha is not going to just give it to him. It's been a brutal competition." On the evidence of Saturday night's 69-0 win over Davidson, the winner of that competition is the Bulldogs' offense. Smith earned the start and ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns, while McField came off the bench and gained 132 yards with one score. That's 241 yards and four TDs on 37 carries from two players at one position. Smith chipped in a 24-yard catch to give the duo 265 total yards. That's a big reason The Citadel piled up 535 rushing yards - third-most in school history - and 602 total yards (fifth-most).

3c. Davidson Wildcats big underdogs at The Citadel
Players from the Davidson football team that defeated The Citadel 50 years ago are in Charleston for a reunion this weekend. They will dine at a banquet downtown, then gather Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Thirty-seven members of that team and two of its coaches will be decked out in red and white at the game. Odds are, however, that they won't see a repeat of Davidson's 14-0 win in 1965. The Davidson program that will face The Citadel at 6 p.m. Saturday in their first meeting since 1985 is a far cry from the Homer Smith-coached squads that beat the Bulldogs in '65 and won a share of the Southern Conference title in 1969. The latest chapter in the Wildcats' long and complicated football history has them going 1-22 over the past two seasons as a member of the non-scholarship Pioneer League, a FCS step below The Citadel and the Southern Conference.

7. Women's Soccer Takes Out The Citadel, 5-0
Behind a career night from Kate McDonnell, the Fordham women's soccer team posted its best offensive performance since 2006 and the largest margin of victory since 2003, as the Rams knocked off The Citadel, 5-0, at W.L.I. Field in Charleston, South Carolina, as a part of the Charleston Cup. The win improves Fordham's record to 3-2-0 on the year, while The Citadel fell to 0-5. The five-goal outburst by the Rams is the most by Fordham since a 5-1 win over Temple on October 27, 2006, while also being the largest margin of victory for the Rams since a 7-0 win over Temple on October 10, 2003. The Rams wasted little time, scoring in the opening minute of the game, as Kate McDonnell connected with Jessica Widmann on a flick pass, which Widmann deposited into the net for her third goal of the season, just 30 seconds into the game.

8. C of C should sack football idea
Will Charleston Southern, The Citadel, Clemson and/or South Carolina, each already 1-0, go unbeaten this season? Will S.C. State win today's opener against Arkansas-Pine Bluff in Orlando? Should the College of Charleston get a football team? That last question has a much more obvious answer than the first two: No. Still, there's a recurring push from some College of Charleston alumni and students for the school to start a football program. As reported in last Sunday's sports section by Andrew Miller, C of C athletic director Joe Hull said he brought up the football idea to both current school President Glenn McConnell, and before that to George Benson when he was still the president. Though neither leader said "yes," neither said "no," according to Mr. Hull. So where would the Cougars play football? And how would the school fund a football program? Sharing Johnson Hagood Stadium might work for a while if The Citadel were gracious enough to share that space. Over the long term, though, a C of C football team would need its own stadium.

9. Bill Kitchell Obituary
William "Bill" Kitchell, a true American war hero and a former Garden City resident, passed away on August 12th, at 99 years of age. Surrounded by his wife, Connie, and several family members and friends, including classmates from the Citadel, he left this world with a strong faith in God and with the dignity that exemplified his life. A man of smiles, unbounded enthusiasm and an eagerness to help others, he will be missed by old and new friends alike. Born on March 3, 1916, Bill, his brother Frank and mother and father were the very first residents of a stately home on Stewart Avenue graduating high school in 1935. That home, now nearly 100 years old with just three family owners, remained one of his favorite memories. At 19, Bill enrolled in the Pre-Med program at The Citadel in South Carolina, considered the southern equivalent to West Point or the Naval Academy at Annapolis.

1. A missing Civil War sword, rediscovered in Ottawa
Charles C. Tew was a very famous Southern son. He was the first honor grad of The Citadel military academy. He was in the first class to graduate and he became the president of the alumni and also a professor at the school. He went on to co-found the Arsenal Military Academy in Columbia, South Carolina and from there he left in 1857. That's when the cadets presented him the sword... at the outbreak of the hostilities he was made 3rd in command of the troops of the Carolinas... Tew dies at the battle of Antietam with the sword on him... The sword eventually winds up in Norwalk, Ohio via a family connection through the Sutter family to the Blythe family. Eventually a descendant of the Blythe family, Emilia Blythe, arrives in Ottawa in 1960 and she gives the sword to her distant cousin, the CO of the 703 signal regiment in Ottawa. This month, the sword is being returned to The Citadel. The Citadel was gob smacked when they were told we had the sword because people have been searching for it for 160 years.

3a. Citadel football to honor Emanel AME 9
We've seen the outpouring of support from across the state and the country in the months following the deadly shooting at Emanuel AME. This season our state college football teams are supporting the Emanuel nine on their helmets. Charleston Southern University, the University of South Carolina and The Citadel are among teams that will be wearing a decal with "E9" on their helmets as a way to honor the Emanuel nine.

3b. For The Citadel, getting Cam Jackson the ball will be key
On Cam Jackson's first day of high school football, the coaches asked for a show of hands - who wants to play what position? "About five guys said they wanted to play running back, and about five guys said they wanted to play linebacker," said Jackson, who had grown up in Mobile, Ala., playing those positions. "But only one guy raised his hand for quarterback. So I said, 'Uh, quarterback, I guess.'" Citadel coaches asked Jackson to raise his hand to play quarterback again in preseason practice, competing with sophomore Dominique Allen for the starting job. For the 6-2, 197-pound Jackson, it was something of a no-lose proposition - if he didn't beat out Allen for the QB job, Jackson knew he'd start at slotback, where he had a breakout season in 2014.

4. A Look Back at the Bucs: ETSU beats Citadel 16-13 in final game
Talk about a storybook ending. Eighty years of football at East Tennessee State came down to mere seconds, and Jonathan Godfrey made them count. Godfrey's 22-yard field goal with two seconds left Saturday gave the Bucs an emotional 16-13 victory over The Citadel at Memorial Center in the final game of the ETSU football program. "It was great to see everyone smile one last time," said Godfrey, a Johnson City native. "We'll remember this for the rest of our lives. Just knowing that last kick that went through the uprights was the end of 80 years of football at ETSU. With that kick we split up as brothers, but we'll always remember each other in our hearts." Tailback Gaven Varner rushed for 197 yards on 37 carries, and quarterback Carl Meadows threw for 162 yards as the Bucs overcame five fumbles to close their final season with a two-game winning streak. Budget cuts and an athletic department deficit caused the school to eliminate football after this season, so the Bucs knew what was coming and when it would happen. But first they had to take care of a little business, and beating The Citadel was all they had left.

6. Game Day ready: Best bets for fall football watching
These days, dedicated sports fans have come to expect more from their favorite game day watering holes than buckets of cheap lagers, baskets of generic fried bar food and a few loud big screens showing game action. While there's no shortage of old-school sports bars in every region of the Lowcountry these days, there's a growing number of independent, multifaceted, neighborhood-oriented hangouts that offer more to fans. Football fanatics around the Charleston area tend to simultaneously follow several professional teams and more than a few regional college teams, like the USC Gamecocks, the Clemson Tigers, The Citadel Bulldogs and teams from North Carolina and Georgia, and they prefer a casual, and civil, atmosphere with affordable, high-quality fare and better-than-decent drink menus.

7. Improvement letting Eagles take flight
Chapin's Logan Bailey admits he was a work in progress as a quarterback last season. The senior was a running back before making the transition to quarterback on the B Team as a freshman and then on junior varsity as a sophomore. He still had a tendency to run first and pass second last season. But after a summer of working in various camps and with a host of talented receivers on the Eagles, Bailey has made bigger strides on and off the field as a passer. "Early on, there were a lot of people saying they didn't think I could pass and all I could do is run," Bailey said. "I took different things from each camp I attended. I went to The Citadel, Wingate and a few others to find out what I needed to work on and what my strengths and weaknesses are. I think my biggest improvement has been throwing the ball."

8. Nearly year later, VMI won't release Elmores, who left to care for grandfather
Nearly a year after leaving Virginia Military Institute to care for their ailing grandfather, basketball players Jon and Ot Elmore still haven't received their release from the school. The Elmore brothers, who never played a game for VMI, told ESPN that they returned home to Charleston, West Virginia, and took turns sleeping on a couch to tend to their grandfather, Otmer Elmore - who died months later from cancer. "He basically raised us," said Ot Elmore, who was named after his grandfather. Jon Elmore eventually enrolled at Marshall in nearby Huntington, West Virginia, paying his own way and practicing with the team in the second semester. Ot Elmore chose to attend Texas Rio Grande Valley, where he also paid his own way the second semester and, like his brother, will have to do the same for the first semester of the 2015-16 year. VMI's head coach at the time, Duggar Baucom, left after last season to become the head coach at the Citadel.

9. The two Carolinas kick off the season fighting for their lives
What's at stake for South Carolina: Beating two ACC Coastal also - rans in a row - South Carolina eeked out a 24-21 win over Miami in the Independence Bowl - would be an important first step toward demonstrating that the Gamecocks are ready to be relevant in the SEC East again. The Tar Heels could end up being the most well-rounded offense South Carolina faces until an Oct. 31 trip to College Station. If SC can slow down Marquise Williams and the Tar Heel attack, it might be a sign that new defensive coordinator Jon Hoke and a handful of JUCO transfers will prove to be an effective tourniquet for a Gamecock defense that was last seen passed out on the kitchen floor, gushing blood from multiple wounds it didn't remember suffering. Then, there's the practical mathematics of South Carolina needing six wins to get to a bowl. There aren't a lot of games on South Carolina's schedule that you look at and think, "Yeah, they should win that." Go ahead and pencil in Ws next to Vanderbilt and The Citadel. But who's the next-worst team on the schedule? UCF? Florida? Kentucky? Anybody stepping forward to throw serious money down on South Carolina winning any of those games?

1a. Charleston RiverDogs (and Bill Murray) gave away a car... with 285,000 miles on it
The Charleston RiverDogs are the Single-A affiliate for the New York Yankees, and they happen to be partially owned by Bill Murray (aka the "Director of Fun"). To celebrate their record attendance of 285,000 fans this season, the RiverDogs gave away a car. But not just any car... a 1998 Honda Civic with 285,000 miles on it. The winner of the car was Kyle Busbee, a cadet at The Citadel. He won the vehicle by entering a free raffle. The best part? Busbee didn't have a car before winning the Civic. When he heard his ticket number called, he got to stick his head out of the sunroof and take a ride around the field.

1b. Citadel cadet wins new, old car in RiverDogs giveaway
Kyle Busbee was in the market for a new car. After wrecking his car over the summer, Busbee had been searching for a new mode of transportation for a few weeks. When Busbee discovered that the Charleston RiverDogs were giving away a car at Tuesday night's game against the Asheville Tourists, The Citadel cadet jumped at the chance to win a vehicle. "I had put my name into a bunch of car raffles and finally won one!" Busbee said during an on-air interview with RiverDogs radio broadcaster Dan Acheson. "It's just what I needed to go visit my family and friends with in Spartanburg. I couldn't be more excited." The car that Busbee won isn't exactly new - it is a 1998 Honda Civic with 285,000 miles on it. The 285,000 figure was in recognition of the RiverDogs' new single-season attendance record of 287,647, which they set Tuesday night against Asheville, breaking the old mark of 284,718 set back in 2007.

3. Water plant operator: Solid career move for those not suited for desk work
When you get thirsty you go to the tap, turn the faucet and pour a glass of water. It's a simple task. But do you know much about the person who ensures that the water makes it to your kitchen? Walt Beard, water plant facilities manager for the city of Sumter, is one of the many people who makes sure the area has clear, running water. Beard said he heard about a job as water plant operator with Sumter Public Works a few years ago from an instructor at Central Carolina Technical College. After studying chemistry at The Citadel in Charleston, he was interested in the position because it would allow him to put his science background to use. To become a water plant operator, Beard needed to pass a certification exam that consists of five levels as well as complete one year of on-the-job training.

4. College football preview: SC teams poised for big things this season
Welcome to another season of college football! As teams across the country get ready to take the field for the first game of the season, ABC Sports 4's Scott Eisberg and Daren Stoltzfus take a look at teams in the Palmetto State. In downtown Charleston, The Citadel is experiencing its second season under Mike Houston. Again, the Bulldogs were picked to finish towards the bottom of the Southern Conference, but Houston says his team has no plans to follow through on that prediction. This year is about comfort. He's not teaching the playbook and his system as much. It's understood what he and the staff are looking to accomplish on the field. With Aaron Miller gone from under center, Dominique Allen will get the start, putting playmaker Cam Jackson on the field at the same time. That means the duo could break out some big yardage on teams not expecting much from the Dogs. In Orangeburg, another set of Bulldogs has dealt with an offseason of turmoil, but head coach Buddy Pough is hoping talks of disbanding the team, shutting down the university, and the lingering financial struggles at SC State will be a steadying force.

5. Coastal Carolina moving to the Sun Belt
The state of South Carolina now has three teams bidding for bowl berths. Coastal Carolina University will move up to the NCAA Division I Bowl Subdivision and join the Sun Belt Conference, school president David A. DeCenzo announced Tuesday. DeCenzo said the Chanticleers will officially move to the Sun Belt on July 1, 2016. However, the football program will not transition into the league until 2017. CCU will be eligible to compete for a Sun Belt championship that year but will not earn full Bowl Subdivision (FBS) status - and clearance to compete in a bowl - until 2018. Clemson, a member of the ACC, and South Carolina, a member of the SEC, have aimed to schedule one of these Group of Five teams each season to balance their non-conference slate. Clemson and Carolina also schedule at least one game against an in-state FCS team, such as Wofford, Furman, The Citadel and South Carolina State.

7. Bohannon calls out to few experienced players to lead Owls into opening game
Kennesaw State quarterback Trey White has yet to play a college football game, but he may be one of the main reasons why the Owls could have a good chance of earning their first victory. Kennesaw State will look toward the few players it has with past college experience when it kicks off its inaugural season tonight at East Tennessee State. It will be players like White, a transfer from The Citadel, former Central Florida running back Micah Reed and wide receiver P.J. Stone, a former Sprayberry High School standout who transferred from Eastern Kentucky, who could be the difference in the game. It's because they've been on a college sideline before. I try to lead by example, said the 22-year-old White, who red-shirted as a freshman at The Citadel in 2012 before leaving the South Carolina military college.

2. Ottawa regiment sends 'priceless' Civil War sword home
An Ottawa-based military regiment will return a Civil War sword and scabbard belonging to a famous Confederate officer to the military academy where he studied and worked in the mid-19th century. The sword, belonging to Col. Charles C. Tew, has been "missing" for 153 years since the Battle of Antietam in 1862. Tew was killed in that battle and his sword was taken as a trophy from the battlefield by a Canadian serving with the Union Army. About 40,000 Canadians served with the Union during the U.S. Civil War, which ended 150 years ago. The sword will be handed back to The Citadel in a ceremony on Sept. 18, said Michael Martin, chairman of the charitable arm of 33 Signal Regiment, an organization that dates back to 1913. The sword was given to Tew by his students at the Arsenal Academy, a prep school he founded that serves as an entry point to The Citadel, Martin says.

The Charleston RiverDogs walked off with a 4-3 victory over the Asheville Tourists after a wild bottom of the ninth inning in front of 4,485 fans Tuesday night at Riley Park. Tuesday was Citadel Cadet Night at The Joe. Many cadets and alumni were in attendance, as well as the Summerall Guards who put on an incredible pregame performance in the outfield. The Cadet Chorale sang a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem, and the Regimental Commander threw out a ceremonial first pitch. Citadel Cadet Kyle Busbee of Spartanburg went home a lucky winner of a 1998 Honda Civic. The car has 285,000 miles on it and was the grand prize of a fan raffle in honor of the RiverDogs breaking the 285,000 mark in attendance this season.

4. Citadel's Mike Houston: The winning is going to come
Nineteen months after he was hired as The Citadel's football coach, Mike Houston believes he's improved the talent and the toughness of the program. "Our talent has improved over what it was when I got here, as a whole," Houston said Tuesday at the first weekly news conference of his second season as the Bulldogs' coach. "I think the work ethic and the attitude is maybe a little more hard-nosed and tougher than when I got here, and our style of play is much more physical than when I got here." Citadel players agree with their coach's assessment. "It's a lot different, and in a lot of good ways," said senior offensive lineman Sam Frye. "These coaches push us real hard, and the whole team is a bunch of hard workers now. Everybody is expected to be tough and hard-nosed all the time, 110 percent." Now, Citadel coaches and players are eager to see their results match that progress in a way that last year's 5-7 overall mark (and 3-4 record in the Southern Conference) did not.

5. The Citadel thinks it's close to more wins
The Citadel wasn't far from success a year ago. Three losses came by a total of nine points. Wofford stopped Aaron Miller on the goal line as the game ended to win by four. Samford won by three on a touchdown with 17 seconds left. A few plays in each game could have turned a 5-7 season (3-4 in the Southern Conference) into eight wins and a second-place conference finish. Preparations for the team's second season under coach Mike Houston have focused on better execution. "Our coaches have been working with us a lot," wide receiver Alex Glover said. "We're doing a lot of competition stuff so we can possibly win some of those close games that we dropped last year. If we can just do our job and execute everything, it will work itself out."

6. Gamecocks, Tigers and a sense of community
Football season is a special time of year for much of the country, giving countless families and friends a chance to gather each weekend at their homes, high school and college campuses or professional stadiums. They root on their favorite teams, of course, but they also spend quality time together, go on road trips, reconnect with their alma maters and feel that very specific type of civic pride that is often central to being a sports fan. It's more than a game, more than winning and losing. It's, in large part, about being part of a community. In South Carolina, college football reigns supreme. The Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers get most of the publicity, but schools like Wofford, Furman, The Citadel, Coastal Carolina, Charleston Southern and Presbyterian have sizable followings of their own. Some people are fans because they attended one of these schools, others are fans because their friends or family members did and others are fans simply because they are South Carolinians.

"Obviously there have been a lot of exciting times here at this university, but this is the one we have been shooting for," Kennesaw State coach Brian Bohannon said. "It's amazing the last 2 1/2 years, how fast this has gone by. It's really what we have been working toward, is this first game. I can't tell you how excited our kids are." The first game for each program is Thursday, when the Owls come to town to face ETSU at 7:30 p.m. inside Kermit Tipton Stadium. The Owls have an experienced quarterback in Trey White, a transfer from The Citadel. White, a junior, rush for 128 yards on 30 carries in the Owls' spring game.

"We have 15 home games which is the most we've had, and we have an exciting non-conference schedule with Clemson at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Marquette and Richmond. Playing four Southern Conference games with Furman, The Citadel, VMI and Wofford in November is tremendous for us as well. This tough schedule will get us ready for the Big South conference games, and the tournament in early March in Conway." PC opens the season at home with an exhibition game against Mars Hill, Nov. 9, before heading up the road to Greenville to face Furman at Timmons Arena. The Blue Hose return home for three straight with USC Upstate Nov. 16, Toccoa Falls Nov. 18, and The Citadel Nov. 21.

A Civil War sword missing for 153 years since the Battle of Antietam in 1862  will be returned by the 33 Signal Regiment Foundation of Ottawa, the charitable arm of the 33 Signal Regiment of the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, Canadian Army.  The sword was placed in the care of the 33 Signal Regiment in 1963 but was positively identified only recently as belonging to Col. Charles Courtenay Tew. Members of the Regiment worked very hard to unravel the mystery of the sword after it was “rediscovered.”

At Citadel, fullback job still up for grabs on game-week depth chart

The best battle for a starting job in The Citadel’s preseason camp has been at fullback, and it’s still not over. That job is still up for grabs, but most other starting positions seem settled as The Citadel released its depth chart Monday for Saturday’s season-opening football game against Davidson.  Redshirt freshman Evan McField from Goose Creek High School and sophomore Isiaha Smith are both listed as starters at fullback (or B-back). McField (6-0, 221) did not play last season, while the 5-10, 230-pound Smith rushed for 591 yards and five touchdowns. No matter who starts, both are likely to get plenty of carries this season.
