2. Trump’s protectionism could impoverish everyone
Few American presidential elections have drawn as much international interest and concern as the one in 2016. Certainly, who is elected and sits in the White House in Washington, D. C. matters to many people everywhere since America remains a political, economic and military colossus influencing major and minor events around the globe. Yet, the anxiousness about the possibility and then the reality of the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States is unique, at least in my lifetime. His blusterous language, his crudeness of verbal expression, his seeming refusal to play by the standard etiquette and rules of the political game during the Republican primaries and then through the presidential campaign leading up to election day in November of last year threw many people off balance, in America and elsewhere, wondering what to expect if Trump were to win.

3. Karl Marx Was a Pretty Bad Person
When Karl Marx died in March 1883, only about a dozen people attended his funeral at a cemetery in London, England, including family members. Yet, for more than a century after his death – and even until today – there have been few thinkers whose ideas have been as influential on various aspects of modern world history. Indeed, as some have said, no other faith or belief-system has had such a worldwide impact as Marxism, since the birth of Christianity and the rise of Islam. Marx’s critique of capitalism and capitalist society has shaped much of the social thinking in Western countries that led to the welfare state and extensive government intervention into economic affairs. And it served as the ideological banner that inspired the socialist and communist revolutions of the twentieth century – beginning in Russia in 1917 and still retaining political power today in such countries as Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, and China.

Everything ended on good terms and was fine. I love The Citadel and everything I got from it, but I do want to take this opportunity while I'm healthy enough.”

7. Citadel holds off Chattanooga for 2nd straight win
It wasn't exactly a court-storming, but it was more than enough for a Citadel basketball team at the tail end of a long season. The Bulldogs mingled happily on-court with fellow cadets Monday night, celebrating an 85-76 victory over Chattanooga before 3,300 fans on Senior Night at McAlister Field House. The Citadel's second straight win, over the Southern Conference's preseason favorite, means the Bulldogs did not finish last in the league and will take some actual momentum into the SoCon Tournament this weekend.

1. 'Forever grateful': Archaeological team reunites Citadel grad with ring he lost 45 yrs. ago
A Norway man was reunited on Friday with the college ring he lost 45 years ago, thanks to members of an archaeological team. After graduating from The Citadel in 1972, Lee Williams was farming on about 1,200 acres of leased land at Cheehaw Combahee Plantation in Colleton County. He lost the ring in one of the fields, only months after he had received it. “We went back and searched for it and never could find it,” he said. The loss was hard to take. “A lot of folks may not know what a Citadel class ring means to the graduates, but it’s truly special,” he said.

1b. Mitigating risk of US-Beijing conflict in South China Sea
The foreign-policy issues confronting the United States are vast and complex. They range from terror groups such Islamic State and Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to Russia’s attempt at re-exerting its status as a major world power. One issue, competition to control the South China Sea, pits mainland China against its lesser rivals: Vietnam, Taiwan, Brunei, the Philippines and Malaysia. Territorial disputes, coupled with Beijing’s increased militarization of the South China Sea, may sway US policymakers to believe that military conflict with China is inevitable. However, such a conflict is avoidable if the US chooses its policy carefully and implements a strategy that all but eliminates military action.

4. Bittersweet finale for Citadel basketball seniors
As The Citadel snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 102-96 win at Samford on Saturday night, Bulldogs senior Warren Sledge heard a familiar voice in the stands. “I could hear my dad, coaching me up all night,” Sledge said. The game in Birmingham, Ala., was a rare chance for Gerald Sledge, head basketball coach at Keller Central High School in Keller, Texas, to see his son play. Coach Sledge watched as Warren, a 6-3 guard and the Bulldogs' team captain, filled up his stat sheet with seven points, five steals, four assists and four rebounds as The Citadel won for the first time since Jan. 7. “I'm so glad that his dad was there and Warren played as well as he did,” coach Duggar Baucom said. “And he got to see the team win.”

Ashley Williams came off the bench to score 20 points and Western Carolina led wire-to-wire, posting an 84-80 win over The Citadel Wednesday night. The Catamounts held a 49-31 lead at the break and maintained a double-digit advantage until the Bulldogs made it 74-65 on an Ezekiel Balogun free throw with 4:08 left. Warren Sledge hit a pair of free throws with 22 seconds left to cut the Western Carolina lead to three, 83-80. Williams left the door open by missing three of four free throw attempts, but The Citadel missed two layups and turned the ball over in the closing seconds.

7. Citadel effort in 11th straight loss 'very discouraging'
The shattered clipboard laying behind The Citadel bench was a fitting symbol for this game, and perhaps for the Bulldogs' basketball season. Following a familiar script, the Bulldogs fell behind by 20 points, rallied to within three in the final 30 seconds, and lost for the 11th time in a row. That The Citadel fell by 84-80 at McAlister Field House to the other last-place team in the Southern Conference, Western Carolina, made the defeat even tougher to take.

1. Citadel study includes plan for smaller Johnson Hagood Stadium
The Citadel will ask the Board of Architectural Review for permission to demolish the aging east-side stands at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The BAR will consider the request at its Wednesday meeting. If the board agrees to the demolition, what would come next at the home of Citadel football is uncertain. But a study commissioned by the military school provides insight into possible plans. The study, available on the BAR website and conducted by Lindbergh & Associates, recommends a $9.8 million proposal to demolish and replace the east-side stands at the 21,000-seat stadium, initially built in 1948. That plan has not yet been approved by The Citadel's Board of Visitors.

2. From Nigeria to Citadel, Ezekiel Balogun chases American dream
When Ezekiel Balogun was 14 years old, he got on a plane by himself in Lagos, Nigeria, for a 13-hour flight from Africa to America. What awaited him in the U.S., Balogun hoped, was a chance at a better life. "It was because of the opportunities that America provides," said Balogun, now 19 and a freshman on The Citadel's basketball team. "Back home, if I had just gone to school, getting a job would have been much more difficult. My dreams of playing basketball would be dead for me. "Over here, the opportunities are like ... wow. They are so numerous. That's why I chose to come here."

3. Aviation fundraiser to feature Lindbergh program
The next time you’re boarding your flight to parts unknown from EWN (that’s the airport code for Coastal Carolina Regional Airport), thank Charles Lindbergh. The controversial aviator’s famous nonstop flight from New York to Paris in 1927 is what set the whole commercial air flight thing into motion, and you’ll get to hear the story from Lindbergh’s own mouth if you’re attending Friday’s Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation fundraiser dinner on Friday. Well, from the closest thing you can get to Mr. Lindbergh’s mouth. First-person interpreter Tim Clark will appear as Lindbergh for an hour-long program during which he will talk about his interesting life, concentrating on the build-up to, flight and aftermath of his 33-hour, 3,600-mile flight in the Spirit of St. Louis. ...Growing up in the Wilmington area, he graduated from the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, in 1972 and joined the Air Force. There he became a pilot flying such aircraft as the B-52 and reaching the rank of captain before returning to civilian life.

3a. Failure of Socialism is Pope Lecture topic March 1
Richard M. Ebeling, Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, will speak at Clemson University on Wednesday, March 1. Ebeling will speak at the Strom Thurmond Institute’s Self Auditorium, 4:30-6 p.m., as part of the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism’s Pope Lecture series. Ebeling’s topic will be how socialism has fared since Russia’s Bolshevik revolution, which this year marks its 100th anniversary. Hailed as a movement that would bring freedom, equality and prosperity, socialism instead brought economic stagnation, poverty and brutal political tyrannies. Ebeling will talk about how that dream for a better world turned into a nightmare in Soviet Russia and Communist China, and what lessons can be learned 100 years later.

3b. Dr. Richard Ebeling on “Globalization and the Free Society” at University of The Bahamas
Recent political events in Europe, the United States and many other nations suggest a trend away from the more “open world” of the last several decades. The rise of economic nationalism and closed borders threatens to slow humanity’s progress toward both more personal freedom and growing prosperity for too many still living in poverty. Liberty and prosperity requires free trade and economic liberalism. Dr. Ebeling is no stranger to The Bahamas, The Nassau Institute or the University of The Bahamas. The presentation will take place in lecture hall at the Harry C. Moore Library at the University of The Bahamas starting at 6:30pm. The event is free.

5. Citadel players support Dee Delaney, whether Bulldog or Hurricane
The Citadel's All-American cornerback, Dee Delaney, was on the field with the Bulldogs as they began spring practice on Tuesday. How much of spring practice Delaney will complete remains to be seen. The junior from Whale Branch High School, who led the Southern Conference with six interceptions last year, is pondering a chance to transfer to Miami for his final college football season. The 6-1, 194-pound Delaney, considered an NFL prospect, is on track to graduate from The Citadel in May and would be eligible for the 2017 season as a graduate-student transfer at Miami, or any other FBS school. He reportedly will visit Miami this weekend.

6. Economic Ideas: Karl Marx’s Misconceptions About Man and Markets
Though it may seem strange, Karl Marx was not always a communist. As late as 1842, when Marx was in his mid-20s, he actually said he opposed any attempt to establish a communist system. In October 1842, he became editor of the Rheinische Zeitung [the Rhineland Times], and wrote in an editorial: The Rheinische Zeitung . . . does not admit that communist ideas in their present form possess even theoretical reality, and therefore can still less desire their practical realization, or even consider it possible. In 1843, Marx was forced to resign his editorship because of political pressure from the Prussian government, and ended up moving to Paris. It was in Paris that he met his future lifelong collaborator, Friedrich Engels (who already was a socialist), and began his deeper study of socialism and communism, leading to his full “conversion” to the collectivist ideal.

7. Sapakoff: Still bullish on the Citadel’s Duggarball after all these losses
Nearly a full corps of cadets showed up at McAlister Field House on Saturday but almost none made use of the white pom-poms left on seats as the Citadel dug itself a 16-point hole. Indeed, it was hard to get too crazy while the Bulldogs lost their 10th consecutive basketball game, this time 89-78 to Mercer. But there are good reasons why players still take to the floor with opening-night enthusiasm and why second-year head coach Duggar Baucom left the building without extra Advil or security. Signs show that “Duggarball” is still a good idea for the Citadel, eventually the best way to win games and influence fans. The fast-paced, bombs-away style Baucom brought from VMI is making gradual progress except in the Southern Conference standings.

1. For a Belfast nonagenarian veteran, life continues as a service to others
At age 92, Carmine Pecorelli, of Belfast, continues to put others ahead of himself. This time, he is offering a kidney to a fellow graduate of the Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. A firm believer of the military motto "Life is for Service," Pecorelli has recently been cleared by his general practitioner for this next deed before his ultimate organ donation at the time of his death. After initial testing, Pecorelli's practitioner told him that health-wise, he has the body of a 55-year-old. Not so of the Citadel graduate, class of 1960, he'd met at an alumni meeting. William B. Gillespie, Esq. of Topsham, having once represented Pecorelli in court litigation, told him, during the courtroom process, about his failing kidneys. "You don't look so well," Pecorelli said to his attorney. "What's up?" Pecorelli thought of his friend's need for a kidney as he drove home. Already committed to full organ donation after death, Pecorelli asked himself: "Why should I wait to give something away? So I called him and I said, Bill, 'I'd like to offer you one of my kidneys.' And he went silent." The paperwork still has to be processed. Further testing is needed to confirm him as a match. The attorney's ability to withstand the new organ will be considered.

6. Bulldog Bites: For Citadel, better baseball and beer would pair well
Citadel fans of a certain age will be able to sip a cold beer while watching their favorite baseball team play at Riley Park this season. But it's a good bet that at least some of those fans would trade in a clear, 12-ounce cup of suds for a few more victories this season. Nobody wants to suffer through another 17-42 season like last year's, especially veteran coach Fred Jordan. Jordan's efforts at retooling his program - including bringing in four transfers, led by former West Ashley High School star Jonathan Sabo - will get their first examination this weekend. Kansas, Virginia and Liberty visit Riley Park for the season-opening Charleston Crab House Challenge. The key to climbing back toward the upper division of the Southern Conference, Jordan said, lies in starting pitching. And that centers on a quartet made up of juniors J.P. Sears and Thomas Byelick and freshmen Will Pillsbury and Will Abbott. Sears (5-7, 5.27 ERA last year) and Byelick (1-7, 5.32 ERA) both struggled in SoCon play last year, both with ERAs over 7.00. Pillsbury, a 6-2 lefty, and Abbott, a 6-2 right-hander, are battling for the Sunday starter spot, with the fourth man likely to be a mid-week starter. "We've got to have starting pitching," said Jordan, who has won seven SoCon tournaments and five regular-season titles in his career. "We feel like J.P. is a quality starter, and Byelick we think has stepped through the door, so to speak. Both have had their ups and downs, but we feel like both can be quality starters on the weekend.

7. New Blythewood football coach worked in the business world until 2012
Brian Smith imagined his life would be different if he had continued to work in the financial world. The new Blythewood football coach was a commodities broker for two years before getting back into back into coaching, a decision he doesn't regret. "I was doing well. Made more in month than in a year as a teacher, but I still had a hole in my heart," Smith said. "I would have had a different life if I stayed in business but a less impactful life. I would have missed out on a lot of things that the good Lord didn't want me to miss out on. I just couldn't live without football." Smith said his experience in business, which also included a stint as a project manager for Gamble & Stuckey and then later as president of Caillech Funds, helped shape him. At Caillech Funds, Smith said they traded everything from hogs and silver to gold and soybeans. "It prepares you for pressure. You never felt more pressure than when you are dealing with other people's money," Smith said. Smith will be one of 10 new coaches in the Midlands next season with three in Region 5-5A, joining River Bluff's Blair Hardin and Lexington's Perry Woolbright. The 39-year-old grew up in Massachusetts and was a big fan of Boston-area sports teams. He remembers going with his grandpa to New England Patriots and Boston College games. Smith was a football standout at Lynn Classical High School. He tore his ACL during his senior season and ended up going Fork Union Military Academy, which has turned out several NFL players. Smith spent one season at Fork Union and was teammates with former Giants and Steelers receiver Plaxico Burress before landing at The Citadel, where he played linebacker and later was an assistant coach for two seasons.

1. The Citadel's Beach Club on Isle of Palms reopening after fire, college says
The Citadel Beach Club is reopening after a fire gutted the Isle of Palms event venue last year. The military college will host officials and first responders from the Isle of Palms at an event marking the reopening later this month, and the Citadel said Tuesday it's now taking reservations for wedding receptions, corporate functions and other events. An overnight blaze last May ripped through all three floors of the venue, and the damage required extensive repairs, including replacing its plumbing and wiring and building a new roof. Renovations were delayed by Hurricane Matthew and a few tropical storms last year, the college said, but they were completed in around nine months. "We are grateful for the continuous support The Citadel has received from the Isle of Palms community, our Beach Club clients and The Citadel family from the day of the fire, though the rebuilding," said Col. Tom Philipkosky, the college's senior vice president for operations and administration.

7. Former Citadel pitcher James Reeves invited to Yankees' camp
Former Citadel pitcher James Reeves has been invited to the New York Yankees' spring training camp in Tampa, Fla., as a non-roster invitee, the MLB club announced Monday. Reeves and fellow pitcher J.R. Graham were added to the Yankees' list, bringing the total number of spring-training players to 65, including 25 non-roster invitees. A non-roster player is one who is not a member of the club's official 40-man roster. Yankees pitchers and catchers reported Tuesday. Reeves, a 6-3, 195-pound left-hander who pitched at Ashley Ridge High School, was a 10th-round draft pick by the Yankees out of The Citadel in 2015 and has moved up quickly in the team's system. He has a 7-3 record with a 2.40 earned run average and three saves in two minor league seasons, including a four-game stint with the Charleston RiverDogs last season. Reeves began last season with the Class A RiverDogs before moving up to Class A (Advanced) Tampa and finishing 2016 with AA Trenton.

Murray's Brian Smith was named the new coach at Blythewood, while defensive coordinator Bennett Weigle was promoted to head coach at RNE.

Murray program in four seasons there. The War Eagles went 19-5 in Smith's final two seasons, won a pair of region titles and advanced to the Class A, Division II title game in 2015.

1. A day of fun, science and engineering at Storm The Citadel trebuchet contest
Cross High School senior John Roderick and his teammates smiled as they gathered around a throne at Sumerall Field to celebrate their victory. The small team from Cross, in rural Berkeley County, won first place for distance in the high school division of the annual Storm The Citadel trebuchet competition. Thousands of students in teams from around the Lowcountry gathered Saturday at the college after spending months designing and building the medieval siege weapons. "It feels really good, especially since this is Cross' first year," Roderick said. "I'm really excited I got to lead them. I feel like if everything goes the way it's been going, they'll be tough competitors in the future." The team built their trebuchet over three days in December and continued to make adjustments and other fine tuning leading up to the competition, he said. Storm The Citadel was founded in 2011 by Google and The Citadel's School of Engineering to reinforce the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math. Teams from middle school, high school and college/professional divisions squared off in competitions based on distance and accuracy of shots fired. The "Barbarian" division, made up of two teams from Google and Boeing, put on displays and fired water bottles, bags of flour and other items from their two massive trebuchets. Jeff Stevenson, a Citadel graduate and Google employee, founded and organizes the event.

4. Adjuncts seek a collective voice to pursue reform
The challenges part-time or adjunct faculty face have been well documented. Low pay. Few, if any benefits. No guarantee of work. But some adjunct faculty in Northeast Ohio and across the country are trying to use their numbers to change that. Often, adjuncts are afraid to try to unionize because they fear for their jobs, said Maria Maisto, president of Akron-based education and advocacy group New Faculty Majority. And in Ohio, there's a lot of confusion around whether adjuncts can unionize at all. The law is written so adjuncts can't compel a public employer to bargain with them, Maisto said. But they can try to persuade them, and faculty at private institutions face no such restrictions. When Maisto started teaching as an adjunct in Northeast Ohio a little more than a decade ago, the work conditions - everything from the lack of pay to a shortage of support - surprised her. She felt like adjuncts couldn't even take part in conversations about curriculum. "It was quite a rude awakening," Maisto said... She began her academic life as a tenure-track faculty member at The Citadel in South Carolina but began working as an adjunct in 2003, when she and her partner moved to Northeast Ohio. Bruce said the transition didn't bother her at first, though she knew it would be difficult to advance as an adjunct; but over time, she began to realize how "exploitative" the employment model was.

7. College Baseball Preview: At last, West Ashley's Jonathan Sabo is a Citadel Bulldog
Jonathan Sabo stood in front of the first-base dugout Sunday at Riley Park and signed autographs for Citadel baseball fans. That simple moment was a long time coming for Sabo, a two-time Post and Courier All-Lowcountry player of the year at West Ashley High School. He had to put in two years at USC Lancaster before fulfilling his childhood dream of donning a Citadel uniform. "Sometimes you have to stare adversity in the face," said Sabo, a junior knob who will start at third base and pitch as a closer for the Bulldogs. "I had to work my butt off to get here, to get my grades up and never look back. I always knew I'd make it back and get here, and I did it." Sabo grew up attending Citadel baseball camps and was attracted by the Bulldogs' tradition - seven Southern Conference tournament titles and five regular season championships under coach Fred Jordan. But his love for The Citadel was cemented one day when he was 15 years old. Playing in a tournament at the Bulldogs' old College Park, Sabo hit a home run the same weekend that his beloved grandfather died. "I decided then and there I would play for The Citadel," Sabo said. "I felt my grandfather was there on the field with me. Now, I'm just trying to live out his dream and my dream together."

9. Mocs post 36-11 Senior Day win over the Citadel
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestling team capped off the 2016-17 regular season with a 36-11 win over The Citadel on Sunday. The Mocs won seven of the 10 matches and posted three pins and two tech falls against The Bulldogs. "You want to win all 10, but I am happy with our effort," stated UTC head coach Heath Eslinger. "We had a lot of guys wrestle well today. We have two big events coming up in the league championships and NCAAs, so hopefully we can carry this momentum forward." Chattanooga ran out to a quick 12-0 lead after pins at 1125 and 133. Sophomore Alonzo Allen scored his in the third period (6:08) over Patrick Kearney, while sophomore Chris Debien put Andrew Szalwinski on his back in the first period (1:33).

1. Yes, The Citadel has a hockey team - and it's winning
When Andrew Buchanan was a freshman at The Citadel four years ago, hockey night in Charleston had a special meaning for the knob from Raleigh. Wednesday night meant practice for The Citadel's club hockey team - and a rare chance for a freshman to escape the military school's campus. "I would look forward to Wednesdays the most," Buchanan recalled after a practice at The Carolina Ice Palace this week. "At The Citadel, you don't have leave the first semester of your knob year. So having that practice every Wednesday, to be able to come out and play hockey and then go to Chick-fil-A and get something to eat, we loved that." A chicken sandwich is no longer the highlight of Citadel hockey, which this year has turned in one of the best seasons in program history. With former South Carolina Stingrays great Ed Courtenay as coach, the Bulldogs are 16-5 as they head to the Blue Ridge Hockey Conference tournament this weekend in Chesapeake, Va. Seeded No. 2 in the Atlantic South Division, the Bulldogs (5-1 in the division) will take on American University (3-5) in a first-round match at 9 p.m. Friday. Not bad for a bunch of cadets who use their one weekly night of leave from the barracks to practice, and who fund much of the team's expenses themselves.

The 19-year-old Cadet from Phenix City, Alabama says she's excited to expand on her military career. Battle says, "The reason I wanted to attend The Citadel is because I wanted a military career and I didn't really know where to start," "So I found GMC at first for a head start and then my recruiter told me about The Citadel and how good of a school it is. I was hesitant at first, but then as I looked into it I thought it would be a good opportunity for me." Battle enrolled at GMC in 2015. She's a member of GMC's color guard and was also on the rifle team. Battle says her time at GMC prepared her to take the next step in life.

5. The Citadel picked eighth in SoCon baseball media poll
Southern Conference baseball coaches picked UNC Greensboro as the league favorite this season, while conference media stuck with Mercer as their choice to win a third straight regular-season crown. But neither coaches nor media are expecting much from The Citadel, voted to finish ninth by coaches and eighth by media in polls released Thursday. The Bulldogs, 17-42 a year ago, did not place a single player on the first or second-team all-SoCon preseason squads selected by the coaches. UNCG was the regular-season runner-up a year ago at 38-21 overall and 15-9 in SoCon play, and coach Link Jarrett was the SoCon coach of the year. The Spartans return all-SoCon picks in pitcher Andrew Wantz, second baseman Ben Spitznagel and designated hitter Cesar Trejo. Mercer is gunning for a third straight regular-season title after going 38-23 overall and 16-8 in the SoCon last season. Pitcher Ryan Askew, shortstop Matt Meeder, third baseman Danny Edgeworth and outfielder Trey Truitt were picked for the preseason first team. Furman's Will Gaddis, 10-3 with a 3.45 earned run average last year, is the SoCon preseason pitcher of the year. ETSU catcher Hagen Owenby is the preseason player of the year after hitting .374 with 17 home runs and 60 runs batted in last season.

6. Senior season bittersweet for former Packer Copeland
It was a bittersweet 2016 football season at The Citadel for former Colquitt County Packer Dondray Copeland. The Bulldogs won eight straight games and claimed a second-straight Southern Conference championship, while their senior linebacker from Doerun was earning a Gold Star for his 3.75 grade point average. But on the night before The Citadel defeated Gardner-Webb on Sept. 17, his mother, Michelle Copeland, died at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. She was 48. His mother had been in declining health and was on life support, but urged her son not to miss any games. So after being at her bedside when she passed, Copeland joined his teammates the next day and made seven tackles as the Bulldogs pulled off their third-straight fourth-quarter comeback victory. Copeland had his mother's initials on his wrist tape and his teammates gave him their support, dedicating the victory to him. Still, it obviously was a difficult time. "It was rough after she passed," Copeland said recently. "It was hard to stay focused."

7. The Citadel falls at ETSU, 90-69
The Citadel men's basketball team dropped a road contest at ETSU on Thursday evening 90-69. The game remained close early on with both teams getting off to a slow start. But six minutes into the game, ETSU (19-6, 9-3 SoCon) found its rhythm from behind the arc and hit back-to-back three-pointers to take a 14-8 lead. The Bulldogs (9-17. 2-11 SoCon) then fell cold, going 4:25 without a point which allowed ETSU to widen the gap to 24-14 with 8:49 remaining. Thanks to clutch three-point shooting, the Bucs extended that lead to 32-17 heading into the under-eight media timeout. They finished the first frame with nine three-pointers, shooting 50 percent from deep. Head coach Duggar Baucom and company found an offensive spark in the last five minutes of the half, closing the frame on a 12-6 run and forcing the Bucs to turn the ball over five times. But despite the run, ETSU took a 45-32 lead into the locker room. Tom Koopman scored six of his eight first half points in the last three minutes, sinking two three-pointers from the top of the key. The senior has now made as many three-pointers as he attempted in his first three seasons at The Citadel. Frankie Johnson chipped in six points and two others scored five in a first half that saw the 'Dogs shoot just 33.3 percent from the floor.

Citadel, Campbell Next for SIUE Wrestling
The month of February will close out the regular season for the SIUE wrestling team. The Cougars, 3-10 overall and 3-2 in the Southern Conference, will be on the road for the rest of the regular season beginning with SoCon dual meets Thursday at The Citadel (2-8, 1-3) and Saturday at Campbell (8-6, 4-1). Thursday's match is set for 5 p.m. CT. Saturday's match starts at 11 a.m. CT. "The matches this weekend have a lot of implications on the seeding for the conference tournament," said SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates. "We're still looking to get team wins. At this point, we're trying to fix some things technically and heal up before the end of the regular season." SIUE, which ends the regular season Feb. 15 at Missouri, has been idle since senior day at the Vadalabene Center Jan. 28. "That off week was good for us," said Spates. "We had a good week of training last week and had a few days off to recover. I think the guys see the potential of what this team can do at the conference tournament and the national tournament."

3. Economic Study Illustrates Island Value
Seabrook Mayor Ron Ciancio felt inspired by an economic impact study conducted by The Citadel in 2015. The study was conducted by MBA students of the prestigious university using the Charleston Symphony Orchestra (CSO) as its test case. He reached out to supervising professors Green and Sobel last summer to gauge their interest in using Seabrook as a test case for another wave of the Citadel’s best and brightest. They agreed and Kiawah quickly applauded the idea and asked to join in. Work began in September and was concluded in December. Subsequently, the mayor met with The Island Connection to discuss the results. The scope of the study sums to determining the economic contribution made by Seabrook (including Bohicket Marina), and Kiawah (including Freshfields) to Charleston County. Because the breadth of this effort exceeded the CSO example, Ciancio pushed for a two semester long effort. Maybe graduation got in the way, but only one was spent on the project, constituting the first of what Ciancio characterized as "provisos."

9. School board choice: Franklin panel selects veteran, 20-year resident for seat
The Franklin school board has chosen Larry Gamble to fill a vacant seat on the board for the next two years. The board held a special meeting Monday, Jan. 30, to interview candidates who had submitted a letter of interest for the position. They chose Gamble out of a pool of six applicants. Gamble will fill the seat recently vacated by Meenakshi Ghosh, who notified the board of her resignation on Dec. 15, saying she was relocating. The seat was not eligible for election in this spring's race because it was vacated after the last Tuesday of November. Per board policy, if a vacancy occurs after that time threshold, the board will appoint someone to fill the seat until the second following spring election. The seat now occupied by Gamble will be on the ballot in the spring 2018 election. Gamble and his family have lived in Franklin since 1996, when he moved from South Carolina with his wife and three children. Gamble holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, and has served in the Army and Air Force for 25 years. He was in the Air Force Reserve while working as an airline pilot before 9/11, after which he began active duty for five years, retiring from the military in 2008.

1. Presidential inaugurations and the politics of stealing apples
According to the Nielsen ratings, over 30.6 million people watched Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration on television on January 20, 2017. The newly sworn in president soon was in a battle with the mainstream media about whether this was larger or smaller than the numbers who watched Barack Obama’s swearing in, in 2009. But whether the number of viewers was larger or smaller in 2009 versus 2017, it is nonetheless the case that 30.6 million is a lot of people. It is equal to almost the combined populations of the Czech Republic, Greece and Sweden. It is also nearly half the entire population of France, alone. However, since the total population of the United States at the end of 2016 is estimated to have been around 325 million people, that means only about 9.5 percent of the U.S. population watched the 45th president take his oath of office. Or another way of saying this: 90.5 percent of Americans found something better to do that spend their time staring at their television or on computers or smartphones to see Donald Trump promise to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

1. One of the Most Important Union Fights in Years Is Happening in South Carolina Right Now
As opposition to Donald Trump's presidency mounts, progressives have scrambled to find signs of hope. Will Democratic senators vote against Trump's cabinet picks or try to block Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch? Can street protests coalesce into a movement at the ballot box? In South Carolina-an area hardly on liberal America's radar-a multiracial group of blue-collar workers is poised to deliver a simple message that requires no question marks and should resonate with wage-earners nationwide: They want a union... Over the last few decades, a growing number of manufacturers have shifted large-scale production to the South, attracted by low pay, meager union density, and the presence of employer-friendly laws and regulators. Notably, foreign automakers have flocked to places like Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. And in 2009, Boeing announced it was shifting some production of 787 Dreamliners to a brand-new facility in the Palmetto State, away from IAM-represented workers in its hometown of Everett, Washington. That move sparked a complaint at the NLRB, but it was eventually dropped in late 2011. Boeing maintains it did not move to South Carolina in order to avoid the union. Whatever the company says, Boeing's arrival can be seen as part of a larger national trend, according to Kerry Taylor, a labor historian at the Citadel, in Charleston. "The South has served as a kind of safety valve for a number of employers," he told me. "It allows them to contain their labor costs... This is one factor among many that's led to the stagnation of American wages."

4a. Wofford holds off The Citadel, 100-90
The Citadel's basketball circus was back in business Thursday night at McAlister Field House. But this time, Wofford escaped the big top with a 100-90 victory, avenging an overtime loss to The Citadel last month and sending the Bulldogs' to their sixth straight defeat. Wofford guards Eric Garcia and Fletcher Magee combined to hit 12 of 20 shots and scored 21 points each for the Terriers (10-13, 5-5 in the Southern Conference). Citadel senior Warren Sledge made 10 of 12 shots and scored a career-best 26 points for the Bulldogs (9-15, 2-9). After The Citadel took a 104-103 OT victory in Spartanburg a month ago, Wofford coach Mike Young compared the Bulldogs' frenetic pace to a "circus", and lamented, "We didn't handle it very well." The Terriers handled it better Thursday night. They grabbed a 15-point lead early in the second half and held off a Citadel charge down the stretch, thanks to big plays from guys like 6-8 forward Cameron Jackson (20 points, 10 rebounds), junior guard Derrick Brooks (10 points) and freshman guard Nathan Hoover (10 points). Sophomore center Matt Pegram of Wando High School had eight points and six rebounds in 22 minutes. "They out-played us in Spartanburg," Young said of the Bulldogs. "And that was painful... They whipped us and played a better game than we did. We did some better things tonight. We have to take care of the ball; that's who we are as a program."

Former Greer coach Jeff Neely, now at Christ Church, will be one of the two coaches for South Carolina. Brown, who has signed with The Citadel, is averaging 20.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. "Being selected to play in the South Carolina vs. North Carolina game is an honor," Brown said. "I wouldn't even have been in consideration if it wasn't for my coaches, teammates and family members. It will be very good competition, and I'm looking forward to being a part of a team with the best guys in the state."

Click the link below to watch and find out more about the newest Bulldogs. For more information on the class, including bios and highlight videos for each signee, visit The Citadel Signing Day Central page here. Head coach Brent Thompson's opening statement: "For my second year here, I am really excited about the 22 incoming cadet-athletes that we have. The signing class is a culmination of a lot of hard work by our coaching staff, by our support staff and The Citadel community. We've added a strong group of young men that understand the benefits of the time at The Citadel athletically, academically as well as within the corps of cadets. Collectively, this group has won a number of state championships. They have a ton of post season experience, so they understand the commitment it takes to be successful every day. Coming off two straight conference championships has allowed us to be in the conversation with a lot of different caliber students and athletes. That also puts us in the battles with schools we normally don't compete with on the recruiting trail and is also a very good positive for us. Overall, I am excited about the 22 young men that we added today."

5b. On the dotted line: Athletes heading to play college football
A talented senior class of Dalton High School football players added another line to its long list of achievements on Wednesday morning as four Catamounts signed National Letters of Intent to NCAA Division I programs. Two are going to FBS schools, formerly Division I-A, while two others signed with FCS programs (I-AA). Wednesday's national signing day was the culmination of hard work for thousands of athletes all across the country. But for the four Cats all going to Division I, it meant even more to make the college leap with their teammates during a National Signing Day party in the school gym attended by more than a hundred family and friends. "We knew we were a special group when we came out in rec ball and that it was going to be exciting for us once we got to high school," running back Ahmaad Tanner said. "Today just shows that we were as good as we thought we were. It's been a dream for a long time and it's pretty exciting to be here and experience it." Defensive back Kyric McGowan headlined the signees as the only player going to a power conference school. He will play in the Big 10 for the Northwestern University Wildcats. Wide receiver Zeke Cobb signed with Middle Tennessee State, while defensive lineman John Wesley Whiteside will go to The Citadel and Tanner inked his letter with Austin Peay. Dalton also had two other signees in Jake Brock to Reinhardt University and Max Mainor to Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Ky.

6. Woodland's Ellie Burgess signs NLI to play soccer for The Citadel
Childhood dreams don't always come to fruition, and when it comes to the athletic world the chance to achieve those dreams can be even more rare. But for Woodland High School senior Ellie Burgess, her dream just came true. Family, friends and administrators gathered in Woodland High's library on Wednesday to watch Burgess sign a National Letter of Intent to play soccer at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina next year. "It's one of those things that ever since a kid I wanted to play college soccer, but most people don't get the opportunity to do that," Burgess said. "And it just kind of came out of the blue, I wasn't really expecting it at all." The senior received a full ride scholarship, 70 percent of which is athletic with the remaining 30 percent being academic. Burgess played striker all four years for the Wolves and will be playing that same position with the Bulldogs in college. She recorded 34 goals and 15 assists for a total of 87 points through her high school career and still has five games left on this year's regular season schedule.

9. Bulldogs Back In Action At Home Saturday
The Citadel rifle team concludes its season-long, seven-match home stand Saturday when it hosts the NRA Sectional. "Our team is fired up after posting several personal-best scores last weekend and shooting at or near team records," head coach William Smith said. "We have talked about how adding just a couple of points per team member are out there for us as we continue to improve and set our sights on a SoCon championship." Last weekend, the Bulldogs welcomed two top-20 squads as well as a pair of conference rivals. The co-ed team registered a season-high-tying 4,518 points, the second-highest single-match total in the Southern Conference this season, to take third in Saturday's match behind No. 4 Air Force and No. 20 North Georgia and ahead of VMI and Wofford. The team's air rifle season average of 2288.80 points per match ranks second in the SoCon, and The Citadel's aggregate team average of 4493.10 is third, less than one point behind second place. Reigning Southern Conference Athlete of the Month for air rifle Allison Auten registered one of the top scores in the SoCon this season when she put together a total of 590 points in air rifle during Sunday's dual with Air Force. Auten's score ranks her second on the conference's performance list this season, and the sophomore from Abbeville, South Carolina, currently ranks third in the SoCon with an air rifle average of 576.70 points per match.

1a. Lower Richland students prepare for trebuchet competition
Some students at Lower Richland High School in Hopkins are putting in work to go the distance. About 10 students, a mix of mostly juniors and senior with one freshman - some involved in the school's STEM program, are building a trebuchet for a competition at The Citadel. Next weekend students from across the state will bring their homemade catapults and launch lacrosse balls. The goal is to get the ball in a bucket over a range of 50 to 100 feet. It's a hands-on project that gives the students practical skills. "They're going to sling lacrosse balls for a mystery distance so the kids have to be able to attune their trebuchets for accuracy," said Constantina Green, the STEM coordinator for the high school. The project is exciting to the students and tests their skills.

4. The Citadel gets bigger with latest recruiting class
Developing one of the nation’s top rushing attacks has turned The Citadel from a middling program into a Southern Conference power. It’s possible the ground game turns even more dangerous with the size – and a star runner – coming on board. A trio of 295-pound offensive linemen is included among coach Chris Thompson’s recruiting class, as is one of the best high school running backs in The Citadel’s home state of South Carolina in Malik Brooks. “If you want to be a team that’s gonna run the ball and stop the run which is what we always preach, we need to push people around and we can’t get pushed around,” said Thompson, who also landed a pair of 300-pound defensive linemen. “So we gotta make sure we have those body types and that’s what we really aimed for.”

6. Aquinas’ Ivey, Jordan sign letters of intent
A standout duo from Aquinas fulfilled their dreams during National Signing Day on Wednesday. Patrick Ivey signed a national letter of intent to play for The Citadel, and Dylan Jordan signed to play at West Georgia during a ceremony at the school. Ivey starred on both lines and as a long snapper all four years for the Irish. He received extended playing time his freshman season when Aquinas went undefeated and won the Class A Private state title, and he developed into a program leader as an upperclassman. When I was in middle school, I always dreamed about it, but I never thought it would actually happen, Ivey said. For me to play at the next level, its a dream come true. Its been a lot of hard work, a lot of miles going to camps in the summer, long days in the workout room and everything else. Its been a blessing. Ivey said he plans to pursue a degree in business or sports management. The Citadel, a Southern Conference program in Charleston, S.C., previously told the lineman he would redshirt his freshman year. But Ivey was recently told he may travel with the team as a long snapper and offensive lineman. I saw unity, Ivey said.

7. For Citadel basketball, tough year to be young in the SoCon
It's a tough year to have a young basketball team in the Southern Conference, Citadel coach Duggar Baucom is learning. The Bulldogs, who are getting some 84 percent of their scoring from freshmen and sophomores this season, will try to snap a five-game skid when they host Wofford on Thursday night at McAlister Field House. Baucom, in his second year at The Citadel, is depending on young players in a SoCon that's as good as it's been in years. At the mid-point of the conference slate, the SoCon ranks No. 14 among Division I leagues in RPI, up from a low ebb of No. 30 just four years ago. Five SoCon teams already have at least 14 wins, and those five teams — East Tennessee State (7-2 in the league), Furman (7-2), UNC Greensboro (7-3), Chattanooga (6-3) and Samford (5-4) — all have a shot at the regular-season title and top seed for the SoCon Tournament.

1. Students attend presidential inauguration
A group of Union County High School students who traveled to Washington, DC to witness the inauguration of President Trump represented Union County well while enjoying an unforgettable experience according to the teacher who organized the trip. On Jan. 20, Donald John Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America. Among those present to witness the inauguration were 26 Interact Club members and AP History students from Union County High School. The students, and their seven chaperones, had traveled to Washington, DC to witness the inauguration and tour the historic sites of the nation's capital. While the inauguration itself was over and it was getting close to time to go home, there was enough time left on Saturday for a visit to another national landmark, a visit during which the students and chaperones discovered there was another visitor from Union County there as well. "We toured Arlington the next morning and left at noon," Ireton said. "When we were at Arlington we ran into The Citadel Summerall Guard and Avery Hyatt who is a member and a former Union County High School student." Ireton said that the students enjoyed their trip to Washington, DC and that the community should be proud of them for how they conducted themselves.

2. Trump is willing to sacrifice the individual for the nation
Donald Trump has hardly taken his hand off the Bible upon which he took the presidential oath to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution, and he has already begun to radically and rapidly transform the direction of the American government. Taking up Barack Obama's pen, he has signed a series of executive orders. Several of them demarcate the underlying premises and principles guiding much of his policy decision-making: political and economic nationalism. One of these executive orders declared that the United States was formally withdrawing from any intention of participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which had the stated purpose of reducing trade barriers among 12 countries, while specifying a variety of requirements for the member nations to fulfill as part of the agreement. Another executive order called for expediting the approval and construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines, to enable the transportation of crude oil from Canada to refinery facilities closer to the Gulf coast. Still another one authorized the building of his promised "Wall" along the U.S.-Mexican border, along with additional personnel to be hired for border security, and eliminating federal money to "sanctuary cities" protecting illegal immigrants. Richard M. Ebeling is BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

3. Citadel loses one linebacker, picks up another as signing day looms
The Citadel lost a recruiting battle with UTEP for one linebacker, but picked up a commitment from a highly regarded Georgia linebacker on the eve of National Signing Day. Linebacker Misi Tupou, a 5-11, 220-pounder from Allen, Texas, announced on Twitter that he has decommitted from The Citadel and will sign with UTEP, an FBS program and member of Conference USA. At UTEP, Tupou will join his older brother, linebacker Sione Tupou, who signed with the Miners last year. Misi Tupou was a three-time all-district pick in Texas, and was named to the Class 6A all-state team after helping Allen to a 14-1 record. However, the Bulldogs picked up a late commitment from another linebacker, Aaron Brawley of Loganville, Ga. The 6-2, 215-pounder announced his commitment on Twitter on Monday. Brawley reportedly had offers from Eastern Kentucky and Georgia State, and helped his Grayson High School team to a Class 7A state title in Georgia. He played on the same team as Clemson commitment Chase Brice, a quarterback. Brawley is rated a three-star player by 24/7Sports and a two-star by Rivals. Citadel coach Brent Thompson expects to announce a strong class on National Signing Day Wednesday, with at least 23 players committed. Those include Shrine Bowl picks in running back Malik Brooks of Saluda, defensive back Ken'darius Frederick of South Pointe and lineman Jon Barrett Lewis of Lenoir, N.C.
