2. Delawareans push to stop soldier suicide
Every day, more than 20 veterans and one active duty soldier take their own lives. Those “staggering” numbers don’t sit well with Delawarean Brian Di Sabatino and a host of others who want to put an end to this epidemic. Di Sabatino is involved with the “Stop Soldier Suicide” organization, a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2010 by now-CEO Brian Kinsella and two veteran friends Nick Black and Craig Gridelli. The organization has created a national- and community-based network of volunteers and partner organizations and resources inside and outside of the military that provide a range of solutions for active-duty service members, veterans and family members, according to Di Sabatino, the president and CEO of EDis Company in Wilmington. Di Sabatino’s son, Jacob, took up the fight as well by starting the 22in22 campaign last year in Delaware to raise funds and awareness to fight soldier and veteran suicide. The campaign serves as a fitness fundraiser, asking people to run, jump, swim or use any other activity for 22 miles in 22 days. “We’ve been able to reach people from Alaska to Germany,” said Jacob, who attends The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

3. How do SC colleges stack up in rankings?
What’s the best college in South Carolina? The state is full of alumni — and diehard fans— of the Gamecocks and Tigers, but size wasn’t the deciding factor in drawing up the newest school rankings, released by the Wall Street Journal. Furman University scored the highest on the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education rankings of U.S. colleges. The private Greenville school came in at No. 130 in the national rankings with a score of 64.5 out of 100. The survey looks at student outcomes in terms of salary earned 10 years after graduation and the rate of student debt repaid. Resources available to students and student surveys about the campus and community environment also played into the rankings. Furman graduates earn an average of $47,100 a decade after leaving school, according to federal loan records, and have a loan repayment rate of 97 percent. Clemson University is next best in the Palmetto State, coming in at No. 207. But Tigers earn a higher income — $50,100, according to the survey. Wofford College in Spartanburg isn’t far behind at 210. Its average grad salary? $48,200. The University of South Carolina-Columbia ranks at 256 with grads’ 10-year average income of $42,100. The Citadel was the only other S.C. school to make the top 500, coming in at No. 487. The Charleston military school tied in the survey with Barry University in Miami, Fla., Maryville University in St. Louis and Mississippi State. Citadel grads, however, have the highest earning power after 10 years of all the ranked S.C. schools, pulling in an average of $52,200, according to the Journal.

A humbler Dominique Allen back on board with Citadel Bulldogs
When The Citadel’s team buses pulled off campus on Aug. 31 for the drive to Mercer, Dominique Allen was not on board. The Bulldogs’ junior quarterback — who had led the team to an historic season in 2015 — was suspended for The Citadel’s football season opener, and did not even make the trip to Macon, Ga. “That hurt,” Allen says now. “I know Coach (Brent) Thompson had his reasons, and I agreed with them. He got his point across very clearly —- the team will move on whether you are on board or not. “I’d rather be on board.” The 6-1, 217-pounder from Richmond Hill, Ga., is officially back on board as the 10th-ranked Bulldogs’ starting quarterback for Saturday’s game at Western Carolina.

3. Economic Ideas: Plato, Aristotle, and the Ancient Greeks, Part 2
When we turn to the other most famous ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle (384 B.C. - 322 B.C.), we find little of the political regimentation that characterizes his teacher, Plato. For Aristotle, the appropriate behavior is the "golden mean," that is, the avoidance of "extreme" or unrealistic goals or conduct in the affairs of men. While he hopes that wise policies may help to improve the conditions and actions of men, Aristotle recognizes that man possesses a human nature that cannot be molded or bent or transformed to conform to some ideal of a perfect State populated by transformed people in the way that Plato believed was in principle desirable and possible. Aristotle and the Importance of Private Property - This comes out most clearly in Aristotle's discussion of private property, and his rejection of Plato's call for a communist social order in which material things are held in common. Aristotle argued that if all land was held owned communally with work performed jointly, there existed the potential for animosity and anger among the participants. Why? Because it was now that men would feel that they had not received what was rightly theirs, when work and reward was not strictly and tightly connected, as it is under a system of private property. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the recently appointed BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel.

4. Dominique Allen returns as Citadel's starting quarterback
Dominique Allen is back as The Citadel's starting quarterback, but redshirt freshman Jordan Black will continue to get snaps at the position, Bulldogs coach Brent Thompson said Tuesday. Allen will start for the first time this season when the 10th-ranked Bulldogs (3-0, 2-0 Southern Conference) play Saturday at Western Carolina (1-2, 0-1). Allen, a junior, started all 13 games as The Citadel went 9-4 and won a share of the SoCon football title last season. But he was suspended and injured for the Bulldogs' season opener at Mercer. Black started the first three games this season and went all the way in a 24-23 win over Mercer, and Allen came off the bench to lead game-winning, fourth-quarter drives in wins over Furman and Gardner-Webb. With the Bulldogs coming off an open date and facing eight straight weeks of football, now is the time for Allen to take back the reins, Thompson said. "It was a good opportunity to get him a lot of work over the bye week and kind of get him back in the groove," Thompson said at his weekly news conference. "My main concern was not how Jordan was playing, but how Dom was playing and if he was game-ready, especially. He was in great physical condition, but I was a little concerned about his throwing. I think his timing has come around, and he's certainly a physical presence in there, a great runner."

2. Morris Robinson stars in Opera Philadelphia's 'Turandot'
Growing up in Atlanta the son of a Baptist minister, Morris Robinson says one of his earliest memories was singing in church. "I got a lot of applause but didn't take it seriously. To me, singing was just something to do. Nobody thought of it as a viable profession." But over the years he's changed his mind and made quite a name for himself, no longer singing in church but singing opera on stages all over the world. He's now preparing for the role of Timur in Opera Philadelphia's new production of Puccini's "Turandot" at the Academy of Music, through Oct. 2. Before concentrating on an operatic career, while in high school, what Robinson did take seriously was his ability to play football. His prowess on the field led to a full football scholarship to The Citadel, the military college in South Carolina. An offensive lineman, he was voted All-American three times but didn't get a spot with the NFL because, he says with a laugh, "I was too small. Today, I'm opera big but NFL little." And so, after graduation, Robinson took a job in corporate sales, doing quite well but missing his music, which he had kept up with. So one day, while working in Boston, he applied to Boston University's Opera Institute and was accepted with a full scholarship. This meant Robinson might actually become an opera singer someday - something he knew little about.

1. Crew memoirs among highlights in Citadel
Matterhorn: The operational history of the XX (20th) Bomber Command and its combat missions from India and China in 1944 and 1945 traces the development of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress program. The book, written by a professor of political science at The Citadel, explores plans by the Allied Forces of World War II to stage long-range bombers through China in order to strike Japan's strategic industries. Matterhorn was written by Terry Mays, Ph.D., who has been teaching at The Citadel since 1992. Matterhorn examines the 49 combat missions flown by the XX Bomber Command from India and China, producing the first detailed history of the B-29 campaign flown from these countries.

The Mount Pleasant Artists Guild began its season with guest speaker West Graser on Monday, Sept. 12. Fraser is one of the leading American artists in the representational and plein air tradition. He has painted throughout the U.S. and internationally, but his passion always draws him back to the marshes and landscapes of Georgia and the South Carolina coast.

The Mount Pleasant Artists Guild has other speakers lined up for its upcoming meetings. At the Monday, Oct. 3 meeting, Susanne Frenzel will speak.

Frenzel's art has been shown nationally and internationally, and has received numerous awards in many juried art shows. Currently her paintings are exhibited at the Charleston Art Guild Gallery, 160 East Bay St. in Charleston. Frenzel has served as a board member for both the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild and the Charleston Artist Guild for many years. She is currently volunteering as the CAG co-director of artistic growth and teaches German at the Citadel.

3. Veterans attend Citadel game
On Saturday, Sept. 10, the Colleton County Citadel Club hosted veterans and assisting staff from the Veterans Victory House at a tailgate event prior to the Citadel vs. Furman football game. The veterans arrived by bus to a standing ovation of a cadre of cadets, Citadel alumni and friends of The Citadel. They were then escorted by cadets to their place of honor under the Citadel Club's tent where a meal of grilled chicken and "all the sides one could imagine" was offered. After the meal, the vets were again escorted by cadets to Johnson Hagood Stadium and a place of honor in the stadium. The vets were treated to an aerial salute as they watched the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachuting team deliver the game ball to the center of the field from high above. The vets' night concluded as they watched The Citadel Bulldogs defeat the Furman Paladins by a score of 19 to 14. "This was a very special event that was orchestrated by The Veteran's Victory House, The Citadel Brigadier Foundation, The Citadel Athletic Department and all of the good people in the Colleton County Citadel Club," said Citadel Club member Lee Petrolawicz.

5. Gwinnett police turn to upstate New York to recruit officers
It's no secret that the Gwinnett County Police Department, like many agencies across the country, is struggling to hire and retain new officers. Since 2011, Gwinnett County has seen a net loss of 66 officers and, just last month, chief Butch Ayers reported that his department had hired 65 officers in the previous year — but lost 75, whether it be to retirement, to better-paying city agencies or other reasons. Given the country's current climate, it's also harder to find new recruits, officials have said. With that in mind, GCPD is expanding its recruiting efforts across the Southeast - and into upstate New York. The department announced Friday that representatives will visit the Williamsville, New York, campus of SUNY-Erie Community College in late October, hoping to find a few good officers through an in-depth recruiting expo. They're hoping history is on their side, too - similar efforts in the late 1990s netted several "dedicated and loyal employees," GCPD spokeswoman Cpl. Michele Pihera said. Upcoming Gwinnett County Police Department recruiting events - Oct. 12: The Citadel; 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

6. Custer's First Last Stand
Jim Stempel is the author of seven books, including military nonfiction, historical fiction, spirituality, and satire. His articles have appeared in numerous journals including North & South, Concepts In Human Development, and the New Times. He is a graduate of The Citadel, Charleston, South Carolina, and lives with his wife and family in Western Maryland. His latest book is the novel, Windmill Point, where he brings to life the dramatic story he relates here... Almost every American school kid is familiar with the story of Custer's Last Stand, that infamous day in June, 1876 when George Armstrong Custer divided his cavalry force into three parts, then foolishly led one of those small contingents against an enormous Lakota Sioux village camped on the banks of the Little Bighorn River in what was then the eastern portion of the Montana Territory. Custer failed to perform even the most rudimentary reconnaissance of his adversary that day, and managed to get himself, two of his brothers, his brother-in-law, a nephew, not to mention the rest of his command, slaughtered as a result. Almost everyone is familiar with that story. But what many people are unfamiliar with, is that during the Civil War, that same, rash George Armstrong Custer had managed to put himself and his entire outfit into exactly the same predicament - getting his Michigan brigade cut off and surrounded by Confederate cavalry to the point that, had not timely reinforcements broken through to his relief, Custer's entire force might well have been destroyed.

The Citadel cross country teams defended their home course well with the men's and women's teams both taking second place at the 36th annual Will Wilson Citadel Invitational on Saturday morning at the James Island County Park.

2. Mother inspired N.J. teen to join local fire department
Kim Sargenti may not have finished from high school yet, but she did graduate from the Morris County Fire Academy this summer, paving the way for her to continue a life of service inspired by her school and family. Sargenti, a 17-year-old senior at Oak Knoll in Summit, took part in a four-week course held at the fire academy in Morristown, according to a news release. It included drills often while wearing more than 50 pounds of gear, as well as class work. She joined the Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company in Tewksbury Township as a junior member in September of 2015, and will be a full-fledged member of the company later this fall when she turns 18. She graduated from the academy on Aug. 22. Sargenti said she joined the department partly because of her mother's prior service as a paramedic. "She wanted me to experience the same life-changing service she had," Sargenti said. "She also knew I loved to volunteer for the community." Sargenti she she and her academy classmates bonded, and she values the lessons they learned together. "I will always remember my class motto: 'The Desire to Learn, The Determination to Excel, The Ability to Succeed, The Valor to Serve,' and use it as my backbone in life," she said. Sargenti said she is seriously considering attending The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina or the Virginia Military Institute, as well as other colleges and universities with ROTC programs.

5. For Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen, clutch is nothing new
The southern rasp in Lyman Guy's voice spikes when the conversation shifts to Dominique Allen. He pauses for moment, thinking back on his former quarterback, before enthusiastically starting again. "Well, you remember the touchdown he threw against Florida State, don't you?" Allen's high school football coach asks rhetorically. "And when they beat South Carolina? "That kid, he's got it. He understands it. He's a natural leader and he's comfortable in those situations. It's the fruits of his leadership and labor. And he's been doing that since Day 1." Allen has been a paradox of sorts for The Citadel this season. Not a starter but certainly a finisher. The past two weeks the junior quarterback has led game-winning touchdown drives in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against both Furman and Gardner-Webb. He's directed the late-game rallies like a poised, third-year veteran. But he's yet to start a game for the Bulldogs this season.

Contrasting coaching situations were discussed at Thursday's meeting of the Orangeburg Touchdown Club at The Cinema. South Carolina State head football coach Buddy Pough spoke of his team's 0-3 start on the road against three Football Bowl Subdivision programs, including last Saturday's 59-0 shutout loss at No. 5 Clemson. After Pough spoke, he introduced first-year Citadel head football coach Brent Thompson, who is 3-0 and enjoying his first bye week as a college head coach. "I think everybody knows that Clemson is pretty good," Pough said with a smile. "I guess when they get through playing Georgia Tech and then get ahold of that Louisville team in a week or so, we'll get a better understanding of what the ACC is all about this season. "It's all a blur for us now, with this recent three-game stretch. Now we need to show some actual improvement with the way we've played and get after our league (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), starting with Florida A&M in Tallahassee this Saturday."

3. Economic Ideas: Plato, Aristotle, and the Ancient Greeks, Part 1
The ancient Greeks left a wealth of knowledge through their surviving writings on a wide variety of themes, including science, logic, philosophy, literature, and the arts. In addition, the city-state of Athens is considered the birthplace of intellectual freedom and democracy - lasting legacies that helped to mold the ideas that have influenced the development of Western Civilization. But, in comparison, their discussions on economics were often few and almost always relatively unsystematic. A primary reason for this is due to the fact that for the ancient Greeks questions concerning "economics" were considered subservient to other themes considered far more crucial to human life and society. For the Greek philosophers and social thinkers, the central themes were questions of "justice," "virtue," "the good," and "the beautiful." What today we call "economic" questions and problems were relegated to a narrow corner of evaluating how economic institutions and organization could be designed or modified to serve these "higher" ends or goals. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the recently appointed BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel.

4. Upping nutrition at food banks no piece of cake (photo)
Concerns about food bank clients' nutrition aren't new, although they've intensified since the latest recession, when the number of people depending on soup kitchens and food pantries surged by nearly 50 percent. During that period, many Americans' relationships with food banks changed: Caught in unrelenting personal financial crises, they visited food banks again and again, rather than solely in case of emergency. Feeding America data shows food bank clients, on average, seek assistance eight times a year. "We're learning that there are more people who rely on us for sustenance on a regular basis," a Feeding America spokesman told Civil Eats. "If people are going to rely on a significant amount of their food coming from us, we had better be sure we're not contributing to illnesses."

6. Citadel, Charleston Southern stage epic volleyball point
The ball crossed the net 25 times, was touched 74 times and stayed in the air for almost 90 seconds. When the epic point was over, Charleston Southern player Madison Martin fell to her knees in exhaustion, while teammate Rachel Smith raised her hands in joy. Charleston Southern won the point, but The Citadel won the match last Saturday that produced what might be the longest point in NCAA Division I volleyball this season. The point, which lasted one minute and 26 seconds, came in the third set of the Bulldogs' 21-25, 25-14, 26-24, 25-17 victory at McAlister Field House last Saturday night. In a Twitter poll conducted by NCAA Volleyball, it was voted the national play of the week, gathering 40 percent of 2,095 votes. USA Volleyball's list of longest volleyball rallies on YouTube includes no college matches that had a longer rally time than The Citadel/CSU's 1:26, and none that included more than 74 contacts. Only one college match on the list, between Illinois and Southern Cal in 2011, had more net crossings, with 27.

5. The Citadel's Schoultz honored by SoCon
The Citadel's DeAndre Schoultz has been named the Southern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Schoultz returned five punts for 120 yards, including an 81-yard return for a touchdown, in The Citadel's 31-24 win at Gardner-Webb. On the final play of the third quarter, the senior from Aiken, South Carolina, registered the first punt return touchdown by a Bulldog since Andre Roberts in 2008 to give The Citadel a 21-17 leading heading into the final 15 minutes. Schoultz's return is the third-longest punt return in program history and the longest since a program-record 89 yarder by Jeff Varnadoe in 1971. Schoultz currently has the longest punt return in the Southern Conference and third-longest punt return in FCS in 2016. His 120 total punt return yards are the most in FCS against a Division I opponent this season. Schoultz claimed a conference weekly honor for the first time in his career and is the third Bulldog in the first three weeks to be recognized by the conference office. B-Back Tyler Renew was named Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 146 yards and one touchdown in the season opener at Mercer, and defensive back Dee Delaney was named Defensive Player of the Week after grabbing two interceptions in week two against Furman. The Citadel is the only program with an Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week in 2016.

6. The Citadel moves into top 10 in two polls
The Citadel football team moved up into the top 10 of both major FCS Top 25 polls released Monday. The Bulldogs are ranked 10th in the STATS and Coaches polls after being ranked 15th in each poll last week. The Citadel is ranked in the top 10 for the first time since 2012 when the Bulldogs spent one week at No. 10 after defeating Appalachian State. The Citadel previously had not been ranked in the top 10 since spending the majority of the 1992 season in the top 10, including four weeks at No. 1. The Bulldogs have been ranked for nine straight weeks dating back to the 2015 season, which is the program's second-longest streak in the top 25 since records are available beginning with the 1990 season. The school record for consecutive weeks ranked is 15 from 1992-93. The Bulldogs improved to 3-0 this season with a 31-24 win at Gardner-Webb on Saturday night. The Citadel has started 3-0 for only the ninth time in program history, and head coach Brent Thompson is one of two Bulldog head coaches to win the first three games of his head coaching career.

1. Mobile food pantry will serve veterans monthly in Charleston
On Friday, the Soldiers' Angels, The Citadel and the Lowcountry Food Bank partnered to feed 200 veterans and their families in the Charleston area. Soliders' Angels is a national nonprofit that provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, veterans and their families. The organizers distribute food as part of the Soldier's Angels Hunger Relief Program. Jerry Cable came through the mobile pantry. He says it's the first time he's been to an event like this. "I spent a bunch of time in the Navy," Cable said "I seen this thing they offering me something so I slipped on out here," Cable said. He's signed up to receive about 50 lbs of free food as part of the Veteran Mobile Food Pantry along with other local veterans. "It makes me feel pretty good, it makes me feel our country ain't completely gone yet," Cable said. Lorena Jordan is the VA Voluntary Site Coordinator for Soldiers' Angels in South Carolina. "I just want to give back to those who have given all for me any way I can," Jordan said. "We love doing this, veterans definitely need our services." Jordan says they packed about 800 bags of food to hand out today. The Lowcountry Food Bank provided the food that is funded by corporate sponsors and donations. Citadel Cadets and several volunteers including some from SCServes helped pass it out. Bernetta Morton is a veteran who served in multiple capacities including the Army, administrative positions, an ROTC officer and an equal opportunity race relations officer.

2. Citadel Beach Club set to open in December with 'fresh new look'
A popular event venue on Isle of Palms is getting closer to opening once again. A fire ripped through the Citadel Beach Club on May 8th. The venue is usually busy hosting weddings and special events. But construction is currently the only activity going on inside and out. It's where countless have had unforgettable occasions with unforgettable views. It's something fire could not destroy. "Certainly we're not losing our view," said Allison Bringardner, Director of Event Management at The Citadel. "So, that's always going to be there." But fire did cause quite a mess-over $2 million in damages. On Friday, the inside was gutted and striped, windows boarded and bare. "We're making a lot of progress," said Bringardner. "The roof is finished so we're able to move inside a lot of the wiring, electricity, a lot of that is coming together." Bringardner said in some ways, the damage has been a good thing. The Beach Club will have a fresh, new look and additions like a bridal room upstairs. "All the (current) construction was done after Hurricane Hugo, so some of the decisions and the color schemes definitely were in need of a face lift," she said. But timing was the worst case scenario. Shut down during the biggest money-making season-between Memorial Day and Labor Day-she said they cancelled and refunded 46 weddings and events

7. The Citadel's Dee Delaney: 'I want to be the best'
As Furman faced second-and-10 from The Citadel’s 47-yard line last Saturday night, the Paladins sent receiver Andy Schumpert out wide to the right side of the field, with receiver Andrej Suttles in the slot to the same side. Quarterback P.J. Blazejowski dropped back to pass as Schumpert ran a short hitch to the right and Suttles tracing a deeper route toward the right corner. Something clicked in the mind of Citadel cornerback Dee Delaney. "When we were watching film, we saw that when (Suttles) lined up in the slot, he would go on a post route or a corner ball. And then (Schumpert) would run a route we call 'China,' a hitch route," Delaney said. "That just stuck in my mind. So when I saw that play, I did what stuck in my mind." As Blazejowski let go of the ball, Delaney left his man, Schumpert, and cut across the field in front of Suttles. The interception, the first of two for Delaney against for Furman, looked easy. But it was the product of a lot of time in the film room.

8. Citadel basketball adds two commitments
Citadel basketball coach Duggar Baucom has secured verbal commitments from two high school players this week, Hayden Brown of Byrnes High School in Spartanburg and Derek Webster of Seffner (Fla.) Christian. Brown, a 6-5 senior, averaged 13 points and six rebounds as Byrnes won its first Class AAAA state title last year. He scored 25 points with 10 rebounds in the state title game, a 57-50 win over Irmo, and also is a lacrosse standout. Brown has a fan in former Byrnes standout Marcus Lattimore, the ex-South Carolina Gamecock football star. Lattimore posted on Twitter, "(The Citadel) just got a gem. Great player and even better human being." Webster is a 6-5, 210-pound forward who "hates to lose," his coach said. "He's a competitor. He hates to lose at anything, in practice, whatever it is," coach Sam Moorer told tampabay.com last year. "His competitive spirit has vaulted him into a leadership role on the team. He's definitely the heart and soul of our defense."

5. Charleston Business magazine: School leadership is business leadership
There is an important business located near where you work and live. It is performing a valuable service that is crucial to your community's future. It is preparing the future employees you will eventually hire and groom into the members of your leadership team. It is assuring that the family interests of your current employees are well tended. That business is your local elementary, middle, or high school; a business piloted by an important managerial leader - a principal. Local school districts are among the largest businesses in the region with four public school districts in the tri-county area that have a combined income of more than $1 billion annually. We rely on school boards and school superintendents to handle these funds wisely, but the real work of the schools take place in local school buildings where committed teachers are led by principals. Principals do much more than manage their budgets, coordinate school schedules, and evaluate teachers. They are major players in assuring the success of children. And that work is definitely challenging - even for the most experienced of leader. Only 33 percent of third graders and 28 percent of eighth graders in South Carolina scored at the proficient or higher level in reading on the National Assessment of Educational progress exams from 2015. Although eighth grade data have been flat, third grade scores are trending up. In fact, South Carolina was one of only 13 states showing an increase in third grade reading scores last year.

The Citadel women's soccer team continues its five-game homestand this weekend as Vermont and Jacksonville State come to town for non-conference action. "We are excited to have two home games this weekend," head coach Ciaran Traquair said. "I think we have a great opportunity to get back to winning ways if we can maintain the same work rate and intensity from this past weekend. The girls are now in full stride and are hungry for more success. We are well prepared and ready to go." The Bulldogs are 2-1 at home this season after topping UNC Asheville and LIU Brooklyn earlier in the season and have allowed just one goal defensively in three games at W.L.I. Field. This will be the first time the Bulldogs have faced Vermont, a member of the America East conference, who are currently 3-2-1 this season. Sunday will be the third meeting between The Citadel and Jacksonville State with the Bulldogs leading the overall series 2-0. The last time the Gamecocks came to Charleston in 2013, The Citadel took the contest 3-1 with Mariana Garcia tallying all three goals. The only other meeting between the two schools came in 2007 when the Bulldogs took a 1-0 victory.

8. Medal of Honor Bowl Suspends 2017 Game
Citing the change in status of The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium, the Executive Committee of the Medal of Honor Bowl has decided to suspend plans for the 2017 football game, according to Chairman Tom McQueeney. The game was tentatively set for Saturday, January 7, 2017. The Executive Committee expects that the next game will be played on January 13, 2018. The bowl had been engaged in promising conversations with FBS commissioners from across the country prior to the moratorium placed upon new bowl games by the NCAA on April 11 of this year. Subsequently, the Medal of Honor Bowl had entertained several nuances to the all-star format that had gained momentum at their last game in 2015, when the game attracted 12,571 fans. According to McQueeney, The Citadel's leadership has a very difficult institutional dilemma in charting a course for future Citadel football games at the stadium. The Citadel recently played their first 2016 home football game against Furman University without use of the east side (visitors') stands. Funding for a full replacement, though well overdue, could be prohibitive. That section of the otherwise updated facility opened on October 16, 1948, and currently has myriad issues related to structural integrity and lead paint mitigation. The Citadel intends to repair and open about 3,000 seats to accommodate the balance of the Bulldogs' 2016 schedule. A final solution will come after a further structural assessment is secured by the college.

9. Palmetto State poised to pursue NCAA, ACC events moved out of North Carolina
With the NCAA and ACC pulling championship events out of North Carolina this week, Palmetto State officials are poised to pounce on some of those games and tournaments. In response to North Carolina's controversial HB2 law - the "bathroom bill" - first the NCAA and then the ACC announced they would remove championship events from the Tar Heel state in the 2016-17 academic year. Those include the NCAA's lucrative first- and second-round games of the men's basketball tournament in Greensboro, and the ACC football championship game set for Dec. 3 in Charlotte. Other events on the move include the NCAA Division I women's soccer, golf and lacrosse championships, and the ACC women's basketball and baseball tournaments... The Charleston area also is set to host the Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball tournament 2017-2019 at the North Charleston Coliseum and the Southern Conference wrestling championships in 2017-18 at The Citadel. College of Charleston will host the Gildan Charleston Classic basketball tournament Nov. 17-20 at TD Arena. Other college events set for around the state include the 2017 NAIA men's and women's lacrosse national tournament in Greenville; the 2017 Big South men's golf tournament in Greenwood; the 2017 SEC women's basketball tournament in Columbia; and the 2017-19 South Atlantic Conference men's soccer championships in Rock Hill; and the 2017 SoCon baseball tournament in Greenville.

2. SC military college selects first ever female drum major
For the first time ever, a female has been selected as drum major at The Citadel Military College in Charleston, and she's an Upstate graduate! Cadet Hunter Crawley, a sophomore at The Citadel, is the first female regimental band drum major in the college's history. She leads The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes which is composed of about 80 musicians, including upperclassmen. Crawley led her first military dress parade on Sept 9 at The Citadel. She was coached by Colonel Tim Smith, who is the director of The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes, just before heading to the parade. Crawley says she hopes to show women at The Citadel that they can do anything they set their minds on. Before The Citadel she spent five years in the Chapman High School Pride of Inman band here in the Upstate. This huge milestone comes amid the 20th anniversary since women first entered the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at The Citadel.

3. Parachuting into Johnson Hagood Stadium
You know what's a little cooler than seeing a precision military parachute team float onto the field before a college football game? Seeing the jump from the parachutists' view high above the stadium. Fans at the Citadel-Furman game on Saturday, Sept. 10 were treated to the aerial maneuverings of the U.S. Army's specialized Parachute Team as they dropped into Johnson Hagood Stadium. Usually, that would be enough of a spectacle. But yesterday, the Citadel Athletic Department posted video of the Knights leaping from their aircraft from high above Charleston on a crystal-clear Saturday afternoon, giving you about as good a view of the city from the air as you're ever going to get. The soldiers who participated in the jump on Saturday are part of the U.S. Army Golden Knights' Gold Demonstration Team. The Knights' two demo teams (Black and Gold) each consist of 12 members selected during a six-week tryout that includes hundreds of jumps and training to help the men and women in their capacity as members of the public-facing Army Parachute Team. The Bulldogs went on to win Saturday's game over SoCon opponent Furman 19-14.

4. Warnings and Lessons 15 Years after 9/11 and the Afghan Invasion
September 11, 2016 marked the 15th anniversary of the tragic events in New York City and Washington, D.C., when a band of terrorists successfully commandeered several commercial airliners and proceeded to crash them into the World Trade Towers in Manhattan, and into the Pentagon not far from the seats of government in the District of Columbia. More than 3,000 people lost their lives, with many more thousands injured in the attacks. When the ruling Islamic Taliban government in Afghanistan refused to surrender Osama bin Laden and other al-Qaeda leaders to the United States government at the insistence of the George W. Bush Administration, a plan of attack on Afghanistan was announced to bring those accused of masterminding and coordinating the events on 9/11 to justice. The invasion of Afghanistan formally began in early October 2001 and resulted in a 13-year war that may have officially ended in December 2014, but still continues two years later with a variety of US combat personnel still actively involved on the ground and in the air against the supposedly overthrown and defeated Taliban. Richard M. Ebeling is BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. He was president of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) from 2003 to 2008.

5. Letter: Helping Honduras
Corruption in Honduras is an important humanitarian issue (Aug. 28 "Block U.S. funds to Honduras"), but Ed Buckley misleads readers by suggesting the United States is meddling or complacent in Honduras' fight against corruption. "Clinton backed a military coup in 2009" is a disputed assertion. Then Honduran president Manuel Zelaya set in motion an unconstitutional plebiscite asking the public to allow him to run for another term, actions perhaps similar to those that Buckley sees as illegitimate by current president Juan Orlando Hernandez. Zelaya's maneuvers were unconstitutional in the judgment of the Honduran Supreme Court and Congress, both of which formally censured his Hugo Chavez-like electoral manipulation. The Honduran military, under Gen. Romeo Vasquez Velasquez, removed Zelaya at the behest of the Supreme Court. An August 2009 Law Library of Congress report, largely ignored by the media and activists, opined that Honduran institutions acted constitutionally. Among non-Venezuela-aligned countries, only Brazil, with its hard-left Itamaraty foreign ministry, supported Zelaya in 2009. So if Clinton supported a military coup, then so did much of the western hemisphere. Today, the Honduran National Anti-Corruption Council (CNA) is an innovative quasi-governmental agency that combines two functions traditionally weak or lacking in Honduras and key to controlling corruption: investigative journalism and forensic support for government prosecutors of public sector corruption.

6. From football to opera: The unstoppable Morris Robinson on beating the odds
Morris Robinson grew up in a family of gospel singers in Atlanta, but he didn't sing much as a child. When he did, his siblings would sometimes tease him. "They would look at me and say, 'You sing weird,'" he remembers. Robinson played football in high school and college, then worked in corporate sales. He didn't take formal voice lessons until he was 30 years old. Now, after a mid-life career pivot, he sings opera in front of thousands of people all over the world. His booming, bass voice has echoed through some of the most famous venues in classical music. And to hear the music critics talk, his career is getting hotter every season. An unlikely opera star? Maybe. But if you've met Robinson, you know "unlikely" isn't a word that describes him very well... Later, after enrolling at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, Robinson continued to sing casually, but never dreamed of a career in opera. He toyed with the idea of playing professional football, but it became clear that the NFL was looking for guys with more speed and girth. "So, then it's like, 'OK, shift,'" Robinson says. "Rather than wallow in defeat and sulk over the opportunities that you missed, you gotta retool." Fast forward to now, past the part where Robinson quit a good job with all the trappings of responsible adulthood. Past when he was accepted to Boston University's Opera Institute. Past when he studied languages in Italy. And past when he was accepted into a prestigious young artists program at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

7. AFJROTC cadets attend Cadet Leadership Course
While most Hamilton County High School students were enjoying their summer break, five cadets from AFJROTC Florida Unit 943 traveled to The Citadel (the military college of South Carolina) in Charleston, South Carolina to participate in a week-long Cadet Leadership Course. Cadets Tyrese Brown, Jonathen Corby, Jacob Deas, Beatris Santana, and Mason Stirn, accompanied by AFJROTC instructors Colonel Steve O’Rear and Master Sergeant Steven Hawkins, made the long trek to Charleston the week of June 5-11. The Citadel is a very prestigious university, with a long tradition in developing leaders. It was established by the South Carolina Legislature in 1842, and many of its graduates have distinguished themselves in every conflict the United States have been involved with since the establishment of that institution. The Cadet Leadership Course has been conducted at The Citadel every summer for the past 29 years. The curriculum consists of physical training, advanced military drill, marksmanship training, orienteering (map reading) and a very demanding academic schedule. While there, cadets received instruction on how to fly drones and completed a rigorous Marine Corps obstacle course. Throughout the week, the cadets' rooms were inspected to ensure they were within strict standards set by the course instructors. They also received a daily uniform inspection.

The Citadel has earned three #1 rankings from U.S. News and World Report; one of them for the sixth consecutive year. The news and information publisher's 2017 rankings were released Sept. 13 and The Citadel is #1 Public College in the South for the sixth time, as well as #1 Best Value in the South (public colleges) and #1 for Veterans in the South (public colleges.)

U.S. News & World Report, one of the world's leading providers of news and information, has provided college rankings since the late 1980s and is a resource for students and their families when considering colleges. Year after year the rankings reflect the value of a Citadel education. "We do it to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life," a statement on the service's website reads.

2. Chapman grad named first female drum major at The Citadel
A Chapman High School graduate, now a sophomore at The Citadel, has been named the first female Regimental Band drum major in the military college's 174-year history. Hunter Crawley, originally from Gramling, will lead the Regimental Band, which is composed of about 80 musicians. Another drum major leads the school's Regimental Pipe Band, made up of about 35 to 40 pipers and drummers. Together, the two drum majors lead the full band. The announcement came shortly before the start of the academic year, which is the 20th anniversary of women being admitted to The Citadel. "Women have been here for 20 years, but there are still some positions that haven't been touched by women yet. I hope that I can be a role model and show that anything is possible," Crawley said. "It's hugely important. I'm super happy to have this addition, if not just to be able to show girls, and guys below me, that it can be done by anyone." Crawley spent five years in the Chapman High School Pride of Inman band under the direction of director Kevin Horton. "She graduated at the top of her class, and it's no surprise that she is continuing with that same determination at the Citadel," Horton said in an email. "I am extremely proud of her accomplishments and know she will be a role model to her peers and younger cadets for many years to come."

3. Citadel Fellow, Don Fowler, discusses 2016 Presidential campaign
A former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party's congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race. "Now is the time for all good political leaders to come to the aid of their party," said Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton's presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid. "I think the plan should be developed by 6 o'clock this afternoon." Fowler said he expects Clinton to fully recover from her bout with pneumonia, which forced her to leave a Sept. 11 memorial event early and cancel an early-week fundraising swing. But he said the Democratic Party would be mistaken to proceed without a contingency plan. The party's existing rules empower the DNC to name a replacement candidate but include few guidelines or parameters. "It's something you would be a fool not to prepare for," he said in an interview on Monday. He added a note of caution, should Clinton attempt an expeditious return to the campaign trail. "She better get well before she gets back out there because if she gets back out there too soon, it might happen again," he said. Fowler noted that at one of his first-ever DNC meetings, in 1972, he supported a decision to nominate Sargent Shriver - a member of the Kennedy clan - to replace Thomas Eagleton as George McGovern's vice presidential nominee, the only time either major party has replaced one of its two national nominees.

4. Volunteering in Vietnam
Westlake resident James Jenkins, a 2016 graduate of The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, spent the summer volunteering in Vietnam before reporting for Marine Corps training. He volunteered at three different orphanages in Saigon, working with International Volunteer HQ, which facilitates volunteer opportunities worldwide. "I had a really incredible experience in Southeast Asia. Vietnam is completely different than anything I've ever experienced and I learned so much. Having the privilege to work with hundreds of children in orphanages around the city was very moving. And being in a Third World country for an extended period of time really changes you in a good way, something everyone should do at least once in their life. I learned a lot about humility and to really appreciate all I have."

6. The Citadel's Delaney Named SoCon Defensive Player Of The Week
The Citadel defensive back Dee Delaney has been named the Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Delaney tied his single-game career high with two interceptions in the 19-14 win against Furman. Delaney, who led the Southern Conference in interceptions last season, currently ranks first in the conference and is tied for third in FCS with two interceptions this season. He also was credited with two pass breakups, and his four total passes defended in 2016 rank first in the SoCon and tied for second in FCS. The junior from Beaufort, South Carolina, is tied for fifth on The Citadel's all-time career interceptions list with nine, and his 22 career passes defended rank 11th on the program's all-time list. Delaney earned the conference's weekly honor for the third time in his career. The preseason All-American is the second Bulldog to earn a player of the week accolade from the conference in as many weeks this season after B-Back Tyler Renew was named the conference's Offensive Player of the Week in week one. The Citadel is the only program with multiple SoCon player of the week honors in 2016.

1. South Carolina remembers 9/11: 15 years later
On Sept. 11, a series of coordinated attacks brought planes crashing into the Pentagon, a field in Pennsylvania and the Twin Towers. We invited readers and public officials to share their thoughts on how that day changed their lives. Below are the submissions: At 9:37 a.m., Sept. 11, 2001, I felt a thud that shook the floor of my office in the Pentagon. Acrid smoke and confusion clouded the air as people frantically evacuated the building. I was a one-star Air Force general assigned to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Operations Division. When the Pentagon was struck by American Airlines Flight 77, I was one of a handful of people who stayed behind to continue the mission of the National Military Command Center, which is to ensure continuity of operations and communications for the Department of Defense. As the Department of Defense spokesperson for military action in Afghanistan following the attacks of 9/11, it was my great honor to describe the heroic efforts of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who answered our nation's call during this devastating time. I was also humbled to conclude my military service as the superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy, preparing future officers to serve our country during a time of uncertainty. I am amazed by the sacrifice of our first responders, military members and their families. Their devotion to duty and their country is what makes the United States the greatest country in the world. - The Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa Our lives have changed in the physical and cyber worlds since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the physical world, we have become more concerned about controlling access through security checkpoints at sensitive places and continue to advance that technology. In the cyber world, establishing that same level of control is arduous in such a rapidly evolving space without boundaries. Nations and enterprises must be relentless in the pursuit and growth of security systems protecting critical virtual infrastructures. Additionally, in the 15 years since the attacks, social media has transformed the face of terrorism allowing the rapid spread of threats, videos and visual proof of violent events. The social media labyrinth makes regular people more vulnerable. Those sharing too much information across numerous platforms are at risk when that data is aggregated and used in sophisticated social engineering attacks.On the other hand, this aggregated material also supplies valuable intelligence that helps predict terrorist activity and identify terrorists. Everyone should be aware that as we connect more devices to the internet, the surface area for possible attacks increases. Every individual needs to be a responsible cyber citizen and take collective measures to prevent a 9/11 in cyberspace. - Shankar M. Banik, Ph.D., graduate program director for Computer Science and Network Security Researcher for The Citadel

2. A 9/11 remembrance from The Citadel
In observance of the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93, a fragment of steel from the wreckage of the Twin Towers was presented to The Citadel in 2013. It is on display as part of a permanant memorial on the first floor of Capers Hall which is item number 49 on the college's virtual tour and online map. Citadel alumni work to keep their communities and America safe every day, serving as leaders for first responder agencies, in all branches of the U.S. military, and in the Secret Service, FBI and CIA.

3. Firefighters Pipes and Drums salute the fallen on 9/11
Asheville firefighter Patrick Boland will swap his blue uniform for a blue and green plaid kilt Sunday at the downtown fire station. He will stand straight with his Grand Highlands bagpipes beneath his arm and put his lips and fingers to the chanter, producing the powerful, haunting sound long associated with firefighters and the remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001. Fifteen years after the national tragedy that claimed 2,977 victims in terrorist attacks, including 411 firefighters, police and emergency workers in New York, Asheville will observe 9/11, now a National Day of Remembrance, with a ceremony at 10:30 a.m. at the downtown fire station on Pack Square... But it's also a difficult instrument to learn to play, let alone master. Asheville firefighters turned to master piper Sandy Jones of Brevard. a military veteran who taught at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. Jones was a piper in the Air Force Pipe Band that performed at the graveside of the slain President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Now retired, Jones returns to Valle Crucis in Watauga County for the North American Academy of Piping, now in its 45th year. The annual music school draws around 280 pipers each summer, polishing their skills on the instrument. "It takes devotion," Jones said. "Quite frankly, a lot of it is in the blood, and Patrick Boland has a lot of Irish in his blood."

4. Seabrook Island Town Council: August 2016
Pledges were recited and minutes were approved by Seabrook Island Town Council late in August. The mayor reported revenues for the month came in $21,000 above expectations while the council spent $1,300 less than planned. The steady march of cash positive reports puts Seabrook in position to boast of being just over $357,000 ahead of budget for the year. The mayor then turned his attention to a busier than usual agenda, which included guest speaker Brenda Mitchell with the South Carolina State Fiscal Accountability Authority (SFAA). Mitchell provided an overview of the town's insurance. SFAA is the single source of insurance for municipalities as mandated by The Restructuring Act of 2014. The SFAA is overseen by South Carolinas' governor, treasurer, comptroller general, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. SFAA provides central administrative support services for insurance (and related fields), and by pooling risks, it is able to keep premiums at rock bottom... Councilmember Skip Crane reported Bohicket Marina had completed the task of installing the new pilings in the launch area. He concluded his report by commenting on how quiet August had been. Last month, the mayor reported he and his counterparts on Kiawah contacted Russell Sobel to do an economic impact study. Sobel is a professor of economics with the school of business at The Citadel. The study will examine the spending patterns of Seabrook/Kiawah residents in Charleston and on Johns Island, how many jobs are created and volunteer hours and taxes contributed to the adjacent regions.

5a. The Citadel moves to 2-0 after Furman win
The 15th-ranked Citadel football team moved to 2-0 on the season after defeating SoCon foe Furman 19-14 inside Johnson Hagood Stadium on Saturday night. The win came in front of 12,009 fans, the highest attendance for a home opener since 2013. Furman (0-2, 0-1 SoCon) struck first in the game, taking a 7-0 lead after the Bulldogs fumbled the opening kickoff on the 25-yard line. The Citadel (2-0, 2-0 SoCon) answered one drive later, wearing down the Paladin offense with a 16-play, 75-yard drive that ran five minutes off the clock and was punctuated with a Jordan Black touchdown from one yard out. The game remained knotted at 7-7 with four minutes remaining in the second quarter until Furman muffed a punt and Khafari Buffalo recovered the ball at the four-yard line. Black found the end zone from one yard out again for his second touchdown of the day and The Citadel, unable to convert the PAT after a low snap, took a 13-7 lead into halftime. Furman earned its second score of the game with 1:19 remaining in the third quarter on a one-yard run to take a 14-13 lead.

Having important dates like Parents Day and Homecoming set in advance allows our alumni to makes plans and be in attendance to celebrate with us. I'm glad to announce the 2017 schedule, but we are also excited to see what the rest of the 2016 season brings for our football program under the leadership of head coach Brent Thompson." The schedule kicks off at home Sept. 2 against Newberry, an NCAA Divison II squad that The Citadel has not faced since 1997. Then comes Presbyterian, a Big South Conference team the Bulldogs last met in 2010.

7. Volleyball Drops Two On Final Day In Fullerton
The Bulldogs were defeated in both matches on Saturday, falling to Weber State in three sets and Air Force in four at the Fullerton Classic. Defensive specialist Gracie Barnes was selected to the all-tournament team. The junior had a perfect 1.00 reception percentage on 33 total attempts. She had 12 digs in 12 sets and two assists. In the first match of the day against undefeated Weber State, the Bulldogs began with a back-and-forth first set, needing extra points to settle the contest. The Bulldogs had the first opportunity to close it out, leading 24-23 with the first set point. Weber State took three of the final points, however, claiming the set 27-25. The Wildcats picked up their play even more in the second and third sets, hitting .478 and .345, respectively. They also held the Bulldogs to a .093 hitting percentage for the match. Middle hitter Dominique Williams finished with seven kills on a .500 hitting percentage to lead the Bulldogs. Outside hitter Moriah Smith put up double-digit kills with 11 for the 10th straight match to start the season. Setter Logan Smith led the team with 30 assists.

8. State Report: College of Charleston blanks Citadel in women's soccer
For the second straight game, the College of Charleston women's soccer team steamrolled the shot battle en route to a 1-0 win, doing so Sunday on the road against crosstown rival The Citadel. Raymara Barreto cracked the scoreless gridlock in the 77th minute on a feed from Tracey Webster. Barreto handled the ball 10 yards beyond the box and dribbled around defenders before launching a strike to the high corner for her second goal of the season. Lauren Killian's shutout streak climbed to 455 minutes thanks to her two-save effort. The Cougars have now picked up five straight shutouts, outscoring opponents 12-0 in that period.

1. Welcoming family and friends to Parents' Weekend 2016
Every October parents, family members, friends and alumni come to The Citadel's iconic Charleston campus to visit members of the South Carolina Corps on Parents' Weekend. Some of the well-attended events include the famous Citadel military dress parade, drill competitions and performances by The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes. But the highlights of the weekend are the promotion of Fourth Class (freshman) to official cadets and the presentation of class rings to the First Class (senior) cadets. "Cadets really look forward to their parents and families visiting them in the fall each year," said Alexandra Guild, Regimental Public Affairs Officer. "The parade, the open barracks, performances by The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes, and of course the Ring Ceremony really give our families the flavor of the military culture that is the foundation of our four-year experience as we work to become principled leaders." The first Parents' Day at The Citadel was held in 1934. Today it is one of the college's four major weekends. The others are Homecoming in November, Corps Days – the birthday celebration of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets – in March and Graduation Weekend in May each year.

3. Judge and Citadel Class of 1984 alum, Orders Connecticut to Overhaul Its School System
In a decision that could fundamentally reshape public education in Connecticut, the state was ordered on Wednesday to make changes in everything from how schools are financed to which students are eligible to graduate from high school to how teachers are paid and evaluated. Reading his ruling from the bench for more than two hours, Judge Thomas Moukawsher of State Superior Court in Hartford said that "Connecticut is defaulting on its constitutional duty" to give all children an adequate education. Judge Moukawsher's decision was a response to a lawsuit filed more than a decade ago that claimed the state was shortchanging the poorest districts when it came to school funding. What separates the decision from those in dozens of similar suits around the country is that rather than addressing money only, it requires the state to rethink nearly every major aspect of its system. "This is a game changer," said Joseph P. Ganim, the mayor of Bridgeport, Conn., one of the state's poorest and lowest-performing school districts. "It's an indictment of the application of the system, and of the system itself." Joseph P. Moodhe, who represented the plaintiffs in the case, Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding, said that virtually every state had faced an education funding suit. This year, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that the state's financing plan created "intolerable" inequities. And in New York, a 2006 lawsuit was supposed to yield additional money in New York City and districts with high poverty rates, but a battle persists over whether the state is meeting its obligations.

4. The Continuining Relevance of Ludwig von Mises's Human Action
Ludwig von Mises's majestic magnum opus, Human Action: A Treatise on Economics, was published on September 14, 1949. In the nearly seven decades since its appearance, Human Action has come to be recognized as one of the truly great classics of modern economics. Often a "classic" means a famous book considered to have made important contributions to a discipline that is reverentially referred to but is rarely ever read. In economics, Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations is the typical example of such a work. Every economist has heard of the "invisible hand" and the notion of self-interest furthering the public interest through the incentive mechanism of the market, but probably few economists nowadays have actually read more than a handful of snippets and brief passages from Smith's treatise. However, Human Action uniquely stands out as a classic in the literature of economics. Not only among Austrian economists but also for a growing number of other people, Mises's brilliant treatise continues to be read and taken seriously as a cornerstone for understanding the nature of the free society and the workings of the market economy. It has taken on even more significance in these early decades of the twenty-first century precisely because of the economic crises through which the world has been passing. It rings just as relevant today as when it was published in 1949 because the issues that Mises dealt with in Human Action and in many of his other works still dominate the public-policy discourses of our own time.

6. Kevin Graham's journey to The Citadel 'a dream come true'
Kevin Graham was 14 years old when his mother loaded him into a car and drove him six hours from their home in Durham, N.C., to a private boarding school in the mountains of north Georgia. Kaye Graham left her only son, a rising ninth-grader, at Rabun Gap-Nachooche School, uncertain if he’d even be able to wash his own clothes. "Me and my mom both cried," recalls Kevin, now a sophomore defensive tackle at The Citadel. "My grandfather was saying, 'You have to be a man now.' And my grandmother, she was crying all over the place." That emotional day was perhaps the scariest step on an unusual journey that led Graham from a single-parent home in Durham to a private middle school, then to boarding school and finally to The Citadel, where the 6-1, 287-pounder is starting on the defensive line for the 16th-ranked Bulldogs. Graham's strip-sack and fumble recovery at Mercer last week set up the Bulldogs' second touchdown in a 24-23 win for the defending Southern Conference champions, who take on Furman on Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium.

7. Citadel coach Brent Thompson mum on starting QB before Furman
As though leading The Citadel out in his first game as head coach was not enough, Brent Thompson earned a 24-23 victory over Southern Conference opponent Mercer with a first-time starting quarterback. Jordan Black, a redshirt freshman quarterback playing his first live collegiate game last week, moved the Bulldogs' offense with ease in the first quarter as The Citadel jumped out to an early 21-10 advantage. After that, Black and the team's offensive attack stumbled through nearly three entire quarters before scoring again. That drought, though, led to perhaps the most impressive aspect of Black's performance all night. Black captained a long drive with the game's outcome hanging in the balance. The Citadel trailed 23-21 with the clock ticking. The Bulldogs proceeded to move the ball close enough for kicker Cody Clark to drill a 35-yard field goal, which secured the win for Black and his teammates on Saturday.

The 15th-ranked Citadel football team's home opener against Furman on Saturday is also this season's USAA Military Appreciation Game presented by East Bay Deli, and fans are encouraged to wear red, white and blue. Pre-game activities are highlighted by a parachute jump from the U.S. Army Golden Knights. The Golden Knights are one of only three Department of Defense-sanctioned aerial demonstration teams, along with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. The team is composed of approximately 95 men and women, which includes four parachute units, an aviation unit and a headquarters.

The team has earned the U.S. Army 2,148 gold medals, 1,117 silver medals and 639 bronze medals in national and international competition, and team members have broken 348 world records. The festivities begin on campus at 11 a.m. with a Palmetto Warrior Connection veterans vs. cadets flag football game on Summerall Field. Fans can also write letters to soldiers and drop them in boxes set up around the concourse as well as pick up an Overhead Door pop-up schedule giveaway. The colors will be presented by the Joint Base Charleston Honor Guard and at halftime The Citadel Regimental Band will play.

9. Bulldogs Visit West Coast For Fullerton Classic
The Citadel volleyball team will be traveling almost 2,500 miles to play four matches at the Fullerton Classic in Fullerton, California, on Friday and Saturday. The Bulldogs begin the tournament with Colgate at 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday. Later that evening, they will play host Cal State Fullerton at 10:30 p.m. The Citadel continues action on Saturday, facing Weber State at 1 p.m. and Air Force at 8 p.m. The Bulldogs have never played each of their first three opponents, while only matching up with Air Force twice. Coming off the Bash in the 'Boro, the Bulldogs own a 4-3 record. They split four matches last week in Statesboro, Georgia, earning victories over Savannah State and Charleston Southern. Outside hitter Moriah Smith has been one of the most dominant players in Division I so far this season. Her program-record 35 kills on Aug. 27 against Gardner-Webb are the most by any player in a single match in Division I this season. Smith is also ranked third in Division I in total kills with 149. The junior leads the Southern Conference in both total kills and kills per set at 4.81. Smith was selected the SoCon Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 5 after posting 80 kills in four matches. She had 29 in a five-set win over Charleston Southern, tying for second in kills in a single match in Bulldogs' history.

1. The Citadel receives $6 million gift to construct new School of Business building
The Citadel is proud to announce the construction of a new academic building made possible through a gift of more than $6 million from an alumnus and his wife. Rick Bastin graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration as a member of The Citadel Class of 1965. He and his wife Mary Lee will be honored for their generosity through the naming of the new facility, Bastin Hall, which will become the new home for The Citadel School of Business. "The construction of Bastin Hall will have a tremendous impact on The Citadel, providing both the facilities and resources we need to create programs of distinction within our School of Business as we carry out the LEAD Plan 2018, our six-year strategic plan," said Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, USAF (Retired), Class of 1973, president of The Citadel. "This extraordinary gift will help The Citadel achieve the desired end-state of the LEAD Plan, which is to strengthen The Citadel as a nationally recognized college for the education and development of principled leaders." Construction of Bastin Hall is expected to begin in 2017 and take approximately 18 months. The building will face Hagood Avenue and become a prominent fixture at the south entrance to campus near Johnson Hagood Stadium. Bastin Hall will be the first major new facility to be added to the campus footprint since Inouye Hall was built in 2006 to house the rifle range, as well as the first major new academic building since Thompson Hall was reconstructed in 2001. An entirely new academic building has not been added to campus since 1974.

The Cadet Leadership Course is one of the most important annual training events for an Air Force JROTC cadet. It incorporates a wide range of subjects designed to develop and evaluate leadership ability. The challenges are rigorous and demanding, both mentally and physically, and test intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and stamina. Cadets must meet established standards in physical fitness, weapons training, communication, combat patrols and demonstrate their proficiency in many other military skills.

3. Citadel Notes: Video shows joy as walk-on earns basketball scholarship
Citadel basketball players gathered last week for a team-building event, a night of skits and songs performed in front of a video camera. And Bulldogs coach Duggar Baucom saved the best act for last. Bobby Duncan, who had spent three years trying to join the team as a walk-on before succeeding last season, retrieved his skit assignment out of an envelope held by Baucom. As his unsuspecting teammates watched, Duncan unfolded a piece of paper and read aloud, "I am now on full basketball scholarship." After a beat of silence, the Bulldogs exploded in joy, surrounding Duncan and jumping up and down as they cheered. The one-time manager, now a Citadel graduate student, is now also a Division I scholarship player. "I was in shock," said Duncan, a 6-4 forward from Fayetteville, N.C. "It was a very special moment. I was reading it and I saw the words, but it took a moment to sink in. It was big for me, all the love the guys showed." Duncan graduated this year and said he still has some student-loan debt to pay off, so the scholarship has real meaning for him and his family.

1. The Citadel to proceed with Bastin Hall, first new building in over 40 years
The Citadel will move forward with the construction of a new business school thanks to a $6 million donation from an alumnus and his wife. Bastin Hall, named for Rick Bastin, who graduated from The Citadel with a degree in business administration in 1965, and his wife Mary Lee, is the first new academic facility to be built on campus in more than 40 years, according to The Citadel Foundation. The project's total cost is expected to exceed $20 million. In August, the State Fiscal Accountability Authority approved $17.5 million in bonds for the project. Construction is scheduled to begin next year. Classes in the new building could begin in spring 2019. Bastin Hall will be a major upgrade from Bond Hall, where the business school currently shares space with administration and biology students, said Col. Bill Trumbull, dean of the School of Business.

2. Inspired by Intrigue
Austin Gray has always been inquisitive. As the youngest of five boys, Gray was always asking - or pestering - his older brothers with questions. Now as an adult, that same curiosity has led him to pursue a PhD in environmental health science at UNCG. "Scientific research intrigues me because it allows me to keep asking why," Gray said. "Asking why is what spurs science." A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Gray attended The Citadel as an undergraduate student, earning a bachelor's degree in health, exercise and sport science. But it didn't take long for him to realize that environmental research was his passion. "After my freshman year, I landed a work-study job in the biology department," Gray said. "I ended up working for Dr. John Weinstein, an environmental toxicologist who is now my mentor. By the time I started my junior year, I knew environmental research was what I wanted to do." Gray stayed at The Citadel to pursue a master's degree in biology, focusing his research on how microplastics - small plastic particles used in cosmetics, clothing and other products - impact marine ecosystems. As a graduate student, he served as vice chair and chair of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America Student Advisory Council. When he graduated in May of 2015, he received the prestigious Outstanding Graduate Student Award for Academic Excellence and Leadership - an honor awarded to just one graduate student each year.

3. ITT abruptly shutters campuses, displacing hundreds of South Carolina students
ITT Technical Institute abruptly shuttered its campuses Tuesday amid growing pressure from federal regulators, leaving hundreds of South Carolina students in flux. The parent company of the for-profit colleges, ITT Education Services Inc., said the closure of its 130 locations across the country was tied to growing pressure from the U.S. Department of Education. The agency last month said new students at the schools would no longer be eligible for federal loans, among other new sanctions. In a statement Tuesday, the company said it was laying off the "overwhelming majority" of its roughly 8,000 employees, and it said its remaining staff would work on helping the tens of thousands of "unexpectedly displaced" students transfer their records. A company spokeswoman declined to say how many students or faculty the schools had in South Carolina... Some 70 percent took on debt to pay for classes, racking up a total of $1.6 million in loans. That's a higher rate than many other colleges in the area like The Citadel, College of Charleston and Trident Technical College, where 40 percent to 50 percent of students have loans. That debt became a sticking point for federal regulators, who stopped offering loans to new students at the schools and required the company to pay millions of dollars as extra collateral to insure the loans.

4. RiverDogs capture inaugural Patriot Award
South Atlantic League President Eric Krupa has announced the recipients of the 2016 South Atlantic League Outstanding Achievement Awards and the Charleston RiverDogs were named the recipient of the inaugural Patriot Award, making them the league's nominee for Minor League Baseball's Charles K. Murphy Patriot Award. The award, which recognizes the team that excels in supporting its community's military members, is named for the Florida State League’s longtime president Chuck Murphy, and was voted on by all 14 members of the South Atlantic League. "This is certainly one of many highlights of the 2016 season, considering we established the attendance record for the second consecutive year," said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. "And we are indeed proud to receive the league's first Patriot Award that signifies our loyalty to America and to those who protect our many freedoms." For years the RiverDogs have honored our service men and women - active and retired - through a multitude of ways that include the team wearing specialty red uniforms as part of scheduled Red Shirt Fridays. On those nights, fans who wear red to the game get $1 off their walkup tickets with the option of donating that dollar to the Wounded Warrior Corps. In addition to hosting several Military Appreciation Nights throughout the season and often having the enormous flag from nearby Fort Sumter presented on the pregame field, the RiverDogs recognize a veteran at every home game with complimentary tickets for the immediate family, food and merchandise.

5. The Citadel AD Jim Senter talks visitor's section overhaul
To the left, Johnson Hagood stadium stood open, exposed to the elements of a light drizzle outside as The Citadel athletic director Jim Senter met with the media on Tuesday. In plain sight from the 4th floor club level of the stadium, the east bleachers continued to endure the weather, which over the past year helped rule the visitor's section unfit for football consumption. Senter says the bleachers will undergo renovations, but a look at the timeline for its completion leads to more speculation than it does answers. "That's the 64-million dollar question," he said. One element of the expensive task is how the Bulldogs' program plans to raise the funds necessary to reconstruct the east bleachers. Since The Citadel typically sees a healthy visitor's section at games, the east side works as a source of revenue for the school, a fact that heavily weighs in on the project's timeline. "Here's what I do know and what I can tell you," Senter began, "last year we sold $176,000 worth of tickets on the east side of the stadium, which means we put people there. It's a valuable part of our footprint, and we need to continue to find a way to accommodate our fans and our patrons and the visiting fans who come and enjoy Johnson Hagood stadium."

6. Citadel would rather not do QB shuffle against Furman
The quarterback shuffle was a major theme of college football's opening weekend, with teams such as Auburn, Texas and Notre Dame alternating signal-callers with varying degrees of success. Citadel coach Brent Thompson said he'd rather not resort to such tactics Saturday when the 16th-ranked Bulldogs face Furman in their home opener at Johnson Hagood Stadium, even though Thompson was not sure as of Tuesday whether redshirt freshman Jordan Black or junior Dominique Allen will start against the Paladins. "No, it's not something I really believe in, to be honest," Thompson said at his weekly news conference. "There are certain ways our (triple-option) offense works - the center-quarterback exchange, quarterback to fullback, and then the quarterback-halfback pitch - a lot of different dynamics that give a comfort level to having the same guy in there. We mix and match our (fullbacks) a little, but for the most part our quarterback stays the same, and we practice that way. "Plus, I'm a believer in having a leader of the offense, the guy out there that every single player looks at to bail us out of situations like we were in the other night."

1. Charleston native named to lead U.S. Army Ordnance School
When Citadel graduate and Charleston native Army Col. David Wilson took over as chief of ordnance and commandant at the U.S. Army Ordnance School last month, he was only the third black officer to lead the school since its founding in 1812. The first black officer to lead the school was appointed 26 years ago. The second black officer to be put in command came in 1994. "I try not to focus on that, but it is an interesting factoid that took place," he said. "From 1812 to now, I'm the third to lead." "I hope that's not the reason the Army selected me," he added. The Ordnance Corps has a broad mission. It mainly supplies Army combat units with the weapons and ammunition they need to wage war around the globe. That includes, at times, their procurement and maintenance, according the U.S. Army website. More than 100,000 soldiers serve in the Ordnance Corps.

2. 'A servant-leader' -- Greenwood engineer to join titans of industry in SC Business Hall of Fame
During a 60-year engineering career, Greenwood native Emmett Davis has developed a range of skill sets. He and his firm, Davis & Floyd, are known for creativity, efficiency, diligence and thoroughness. But there remains one aspect of his life that Emmett, 87, has not been able to master: self-promotion. "I'm interested in supporting good people. I'm not interested in running for office or anything else like that," Emmett said from his Greenwood office. Decades of managing a business with an unassuming personality and lead-by-example style has allowed Emmett to build deep friendships with some of the state's highest placed figures -- all of whom are more than happy to brag for the man who, in March, will be inducted into the South Carolina Business Hall of Fame's Class of 2017... Emmett, who graduated from Greenwood High School and received a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from The Citadel in 1950, said raising his family in the town he grew up in was an easy decision. "We had a lot of temptation to go Atlanta or other places, but Greenwood is just a good-sized town. It's small enough that you know a lot of people and big enough that not everybody knows your business," he said. His own contributions to the area read like a laundry list of civic engagement: Former chairman of the Self Regional Healthcare board, director emeritus of Countybank in Greenwood, past director of the Self Family Foundation and a current member of the Lander University Foundation. He was inducted into the Greenwood County Hall of Fame in 1994 and was given a "doctor of engineering" degree from The Citadel in 2007. Lt. Gen. John Rosa, president of The Citadel, said in an email that Emmett has done the university proud. "Emmett Davis epitomizes what it means to be a principled leader. He has generously given back to our beloved alma mater with his time, talent and treasure. The Citadel family joins me in congratulating Emmett on the richly deserved honor of being inducted in the South Carolina Business Hall of Fame," Rosa said.

Unless you're a time-traveler, each of these cars is a bad way to get around, with questionable safety and quality records that tarnished their brands. But these lemons haven't scared off Americans from getting behind the wheel. Instead, drivers have steered clear of these vehicles and made better choices. It should be the same when it comes to tax relief. Nebraskans don't need to stick with our clunker of high taxes just because Kansas' tax plan is under recall. But the Center for Rural Affairs (CFRA) wants you to believe that the only options for tax reform are the Kansas way or the highway. Allow me to show you their CARFAX... The series compares just five states to Nebraska: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa and Texas. Dr. Russell S. Sobel, an economist and professor from The Citadel, identified these states as our competitors based on measures like job and population growth, or the migration of people and income from Nebraska. In these states, taxpayers pay 52 percent less income tax and 24 percent less property tax on average. Kansas didn't qualify.

5. Signal community bids farewell to long-time commander during retirement ceremony
After serving 36 years in a variety of assignments and command positions throughout the signal community of the Army Reserve and National Guard, Maj. Gen. Lawrence W. Brock III, recent commander of the 311th Signal Command (Theater), and former commander of the 335th Signal Command (Theater), officially retired in a ceremony here Sept. 1. "It's very hard, in a short time frame to recognize 36 years of faithful service, more than three decades of wearing the uniform and serving your country," said Lt. Gen. (Retired) Susan Lawrence, who presided over the ceremony. "It's especially hard when you are talking about Wayne and Melinda Brock (wife of Maj. Gen. Brock) and all that they have done." Brock's career began in 1980 after he received a bachelor's of science degree in business administration from the Citadel, the elite Military College of South Carolina. In his early years he served the Army National Guard in a variety of leadership and technical positions including platoon leader, company commander, systems engineer officer and telecommunications signal officer. "He rose and commanded at every level," said Lawrence. "That's what he enjoyed the most and that's what kept him in. His Soldiers loved their inspirational leader and they would follow him anywhere."

6a. Clark hits late FG to give The Citadel 24-23 win over Mercer
Cody Clark hit a 35-yard field goal with 2:20 left in the game as The Citadel came back to beat Mercer 24-23 to open the season with a Southern Conference victory on Thursday night. The Bulldogs scored 21 points in the first quarter but did not score again until Clark hit the game winner. After the ensuing kickoff Mercer came up short on a fourth down pass from its own 24 with 1:22 left in the game. The Citadel could not move the ball and the Bears had another chance from their 23 with 27 seconds left after Clark missed a field goal. The Citadel's Kailik Williams intercepted a John Russ pass on the next play to seal the win. Mercer took its only lead when Cole Fisher nailed a 47-yard field goal with 10:10 left in the third quarter.

6b. The Citadel's Renew Named SoCon Offensive Player Of The Week
The Citadel football B-Back Tyler Renew has been named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Renew leads all SoCon rushers and ranks seventh in FCS after piling up 146 yards on the ground in the Bulldogs' season-opening 24-23 win at Mercer last Thursday. His rushing total, which gave him four 100-yard rushing games in the last five contests, included a career-long 70-yard carry for a touchdown on the second play of the game. The senior from Columbia, South Carolina, also added a 15-yard reception to turn a 2nd-and-17 into 3rd-and-2 on The Citadel's game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. His 161 all-purpose yards rank second in the Southern Conference. Renew claimed SoCon Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career. He also earned the recognition in the last weekly awards of 2015 after he rushed for a career-high 174 yards and two touchdowns in the 23-22 win at South Carolina.

6c. Citadel faces QB choice as Furman looms
Citadel coach Brent Thompson will face a decision at quarterback next week as the 15th-ranked Bulldogs prepare for their home opener against Furman. Will he start redshirt freshman Jordan Black - who led The Citadel to a 24-23 win at Mercer on Thursday night - or junior Dominique Allen, who started all 13 games during the Bulldogs' 9-4 championship season a year ago? Allen was suspended for the season opener, and missed much of preseason camp with injured fingers on his right hand. But Allen's suspension is now over, and he returned to practice before the Mercer game. "It's going to be an interesting weekend," Thompson said after winning his head-coaching debut at Mercer. "Dom had a couple of good days in practice last week, but we'll see how it unfolds over the next few days. "I'm going to watch the film and made a decision as to what is best for us, and what will help us win a football game next week."

7. VIDEO: Citadel walk-on Bobby Duncan gets awarded a scholarship
For the third time in three days, we have a video of a college basketball walk-on getting awarded a scholarship. This one is different than the rest, however. Bobby Duncan spent three years at The Citadel before walking on to the team as a senior in 2015-16. He returned to school for a fifth-year this season, and head coach Duggar Baucom awarded him a full scholarship... just minutes after Duncan mocked his coaching style. It's a pretty funny video.

2. So, what do you so proudly hail?
With apologies to Francis Scott Key: Oh, say, could you see anybody sitting down Tuesday night during the national anthem at Riley Park? No, at least not from my vantage point. It was "Citadel Night." After the Summerall Guards gave an impressive precision marching performance, the Cadet Chorale hit all the right notes with their stirring singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Moments earlier, one of the uniformed students from the Military College of South Carolina told me the motive for his "Citadel Night" presence.

3. Citadel begins Brent Thompson era Thursday at Mercer
Since he was named The Citadel's 25th head coach last January, Brent Thompson has learned a lot about the difference between being a relatively anonymous offensive coordinator and the face of a Division I college football program. Speeches, suspensions and press conferences are all part of Thompson's new world. So is the knowledge that the result of Thursday night's season opener at Mercer - win or lose - will be attached to his name and no one else's. "Being a head coach is completely different from being a coordinator," said Thompson, who was the Bulldogs' offensive coordinator for the last two seasons before succeeding Mike Houston as head coach. "As coordinator, I was mostly focused on moving the ball and scoring touchdowns, and that was it - just trying to figure out ways to out-leverage and out-man defenses. "As a head coach, you do none of that. Especially here at The Citadel, you have to be so organized because you are dealing with three facets - football, academics and the Corps of Cadets - that you've got to manage at one time. It's definitely a learning curve."

4. FCS Top 25 Preview
College football teams rarely kick off a new season with a conference matchup, but the Southern Conference is celebrating a return to nine teams with a beauty of a first game. The Citadel, which surprised most people in winning a share of the conference title a year ago, will get the fun underway at Mercer, and the host Bears look a lot like the Bulldogs going into last season. "At least we will know where we are," first-year Citadel coach Brent Thompson said, "and I think it made camp that much more interesting because we had to be prepared, we had to treat every single day like it was game day, every single week like it was game week and that's what made the difference for the most part in camp." FCS teams trying to knock off FBS teams and new coaches making their debuts are the other storylines of the first full weekend of action. Last year, there were nine FCS wins over FBS teams, including four on opening weekend. This season, there are 19 FCS programs that have new coaches.
