1. Citadel soccer player Caroline Cashion vows to come back from spinal injury: 'I want to play again'

It's a play that Craig and Yvonne Cashion have seen their daughter make many times in a lifetime dedicated to soccer. A corner kick, the ball high in the air and bending toward the goal. Caroline Cashion, a midfielder for The Citadel, leaps high to head the ball away. She collides with another player and falls to the grass. "I normally tell her, 'Just shake it off,'" Craig Cashion said. "I was waiting for her to hop up and be ready to go." But this time, Caroline didn't get up.

2. Will The Citadel's Board of Visitors be changed?

The Citadel is unique among South Carolina's public colleges and universities because only graduates may be appointed to its governing board. Many feel that should change, but it's unclear if it will. The state's Legislative Audit Council looked at the board's composition as part of a sweeping review of the Charleston-based military college. The results, released Wednesday, include 50 recommendations. The very first urges the General Assembly to require that at least a minority of the board include non-alumni members.

Some in the news media are aghast that many of President Donald Trump’s executive orders and legislative proposals sent off to the United States Congress represent an attempt to undo the presidential “legacy” of Barack Obama.

6. Letter: Anti-erosion devices showing results

It might surprise many people in the Charleston area that real live people reside year round in the condos and oceanfront homes in Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms. Most of us are senior citizens, and we are trying to protect and save our homes using the Wave Dissipation System (WDS) as we await proper beach renourishment. The WDS is an experimental technology being studied by The Citadel and is privately funded by the residents of our community. We are making every effort to cause the least amount of disruption to the environment. In the long run, we also hope that the WDS study will prove to assist other coastal areas.

8. Howard on his way to success at the Citadel

One of the most difficult things for any high school graduate entering college is learning how to manage time. For most of those students learning how to manage time efficiently for classes alone is a monumental task, but add attending one of the most prestigious military colleges in the world on top of playing football for one of the most successful teams in Division I (FCS level) over the past few years and you have the recipe for the kind of freshman year that would make most students buckle under pressure.

5. Historical Society reaches out to teachers

In a state like South Carolina, where history permeates every corner, it seems like history should easily come alive for students. But textbooks often aren’t enough to spark students’ interest, said Bailey Knight, the newly-hired education coordinator for the South Carolina Historical Society. So her job, a first for the society, is to help connect teachers to primary source documents and thus get students more engaged in history and social studies...Knight understands well a teacher’s job. Her undergraduate degree is in elementary education and she spent nine years teaching in Charleston County schools. A few years in, she decided to go back to school and began studying for a master’s degree in history while continuing to work full-time. She earned her Master of Arts in History from the College of Charleston/The Citadel’s joint program last year.

5. 6 reasons Charleston might be America's most gung-ho military city

We’re not just talking about the USS Lexington at Patriot’s Point (although 11 battles stars and a Presidential Unit Citation is nothing to shake a stick at). The entire history of Charleston, South Carolina, has been full-blown ‘Merica from Day One: independence, freedom, and local pride...5. Charleston has been training military leaders forever.Ok, not forever, but The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, has been in operation since 1846 and in that time has created so many notable officers, heroes, football stars, and other alumni (including one Miss USA and an Oscar nominee), listing them all would be time consuming.

5a. Our Opinion: Elon welcomes back a home-grown leader

It shouldn’t take the next president of Elon University very long to become acquainted with her new employer...During a previous, 16-year stint at Elon, Book was a protégé of the man she has been hired to follow, Leo Lambert.As the first female president in Elon’s 128-year history, she was a unanimous choice by the school’s trustees to return to the university she left in 2015 to become dean and provost at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. She returns to Elon after leaving in 2015 for The Citadel, where she was second in command. As the first female to hold that post, she excelled there as well, creating new programs in cybersecurity and nursing, among others.

7. Fishburne opens practice here

Lucius Fishburne’s career in counseling began with self-searching — an adventure that led from Walterboro to California to Australia, India, Pawleys Island and back home again. Like one of the most frequently quoted lines from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “This above all: to thine own self be true,” has been Fishburne’s focus for the last 35 years... Upon returning to the states, over the next couple of decades Fishburne experimented with several opportunities that lent support to his recovery enthusiasm. These included becoming a real estate broker at Wild Dunes in the Isle of Palms and working as an addictions counselor at treatment centers, as well as working on a master’s degree in counseling at The Citadel Night College.

The Citadel got what it hoped for Saturday against Wofford — a fourth-quarter chance to knock off the No. 5-ranked FCS team in the nation. But in getting there, the No. 22 Bulldogs asked a little too much of their defense. Despite holding the Terriers' vaunted triple-option offense to less than 100 yards rushing for the first time in 10 years, The Citadel defense finally gave way with just 70 seconds left in the game.

As battalion commander, I have to ensure that the entire corps of cadets, consisting of 300 students, is squared away...I think that my school should be viewed by people just as The Citadel is viewed. The Citadel is known to be a great military college that prepares cadets for the workforce and for life. I feel that the people in this city should get to know my school by seeing it themselves, say, during one of our many parades.

When Marc Buoniconti talks about his teenage years in Miami in the 1980s, his eyes widen and his smile turns into a smirk. It was the cocaine cowboy days, when bodies were stuffed into car trunks at Dadeland Mall and bales of marijuana fell from the sky.Buoniconti, a party boy with a famous father and friends who passed around joints and more, loved every moment. So much so that his mother had to sidle up to a teacher the night before his high school graduation, whispering to find out whether her son would get a diploma the next day...Those wayward ways are why Buoniconti, who dislocated two bones at the top of his spinal column as a 19-year-old linebacker playing for The Citadel — a tackle that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down — says that moment on the field was probably the best thing to happen to him.

And in the summer, boats leak-proofed with tar paper. In grade school, I was making marionettes, then hand puppets. I’d give shows at the drop of a hat.” He went to The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. Then it was on to the University of Georgia. He came to this area to work for Owens Corning.

I appreciate her courage and couldn’t help but feel irked when watching players in the National Football League take a knee during the national anthem on Sunday. Don’t be fooled, I’m no Trump supporter, but this issue struck a chord within me and was something I actually agreed with him on. Initially I thought, how dare teams and owners disrespect those abroad that are fighting for their freedom, protecting their ability to even take a knee in the first place? But suddenly, I came to a realization. Their locking of arms and kneeling should be taken as a compliment. Why?
