6. Hobbton students explore Charleston

Have you ever thought of what careers are available in the area of tourism related to agriculture, foods, marketing, and business? Many of our students dream of traveling and living in beautiful and exciting cities much different than life in the rural areas of Newton Grove and Sampson County. What more perfect setting than the city of Charleston with its rich historical and cultural diversity. A city tour guide stepped onto the bus the second day to share the downtown sights as the bus traveled through the campuses of the Citadel, the Medical University of South Carolina, and the College of Charleston. The beautiful architecture of the homes was highlighted as we traveled from the Battery to Rainbow Row to all areas of downtown Charleston. We saw quaint old homes with piazzas to eight million dollar homes! Students and faculty stepped of the bus to tour the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, walk on the campus of the Citadel, and walk along the riverfront at White Point Park.

1996: The Citadel votes to admit women, ending a 153-year-old men-only policy at the South Carolina military school. The decision came following a U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down a similar policy at Virginia Military Institute. The Citadel had originally fought a three-year battle started by Shannon Faulkner, who was admitted in 1995 under a judge's order but quit in less than a week. The school would graduate its first female cadet, Nancy Ruth Mace, in May 1999.

For more than two hundred years, practically all of even the most free market advocates have assumed that money and banking were different from other types of goods and markets. From Adam Smith to Milton Friedman, the presumption has been competitive markets and free consumer choice are far better than government control and planning – except in the realm of money and financial intermediation.

4. Life with Gracie: There are millions and millions of Facebook groups; why this local one stood out
A full year after her son Nelson graduated from The Citadel, Dorie Griggs was still getting telephone calls and email from parents of incoming Knobs. Griggs had spent years blogging about her experiences as a Citadel mom and had become a trusted adviser about all things Citadel. What items should cadets bring with them? What’s the difference between men’s briefs and jockeys? How to empower their cadet to make their own decisions? Her experience coupled with her religions training, she felt uniquely qualified to be a “non-anxious” presence in their lives. And so when the questions kept coming, Griggs, a chaplain by trade, launched the first Facebook group for parents of freshmen entering The Citadel, a virtual community of about 500 parents, alumni and other relatives. The Citadel: Parents of the Class of 2016 and subsequent years became a safe place for newbies to get their questions answered. “I never expected it to last this long,” Griggs said the other day.Nor did she ever expect she’d be flying off to Chicago to participate in Mark Zuckerberg’s first Facebook Communities Summit, which opens today (June 22) in Chicago. “I was shocked,” she said.

Economic Ideas: Jean-Baptiste Say and the “Law of Markets”
Whatever economic freedom we enjoy in the world today is due, to a great extent, to the ideas and efforts of the classical liberals and economists of the first half of the nineteenth century. Inspired by the eighteenth-century writings of the French Physiocrats and Scottish Moral Philosophers (for example, David Hume and Adam Smith), they forcefully and insightfully demonstrated the errors and inefficiencies in Mercantilism (the eighteenth-century system of government planning and regulation). In place of Mercantilism, they advocated Adam Smith’s “system of natural liberty,” under which government would be limited, mostly, to the protection of life, liberty, and property. Free men pursuing their individual self-interests would peacefully exchange and, as if guided by an “invisible hand,” the cumulative result of their transactions would generate a greater “wealth of nations” than when governments consciously attempt to plan the economic activities of their citizens and subjects.

6. Beaufort’s New Pat Conroy Literary Center Is Extending the Author’s Legacy

Libraries — whether public, school or personal — played a major role in the life of late South Carolina author Pat Conroy, and the same goes for the characters in his books...The Citadel library also played a significant role in both Conroy’s life and in his novel The Lords of Discipline. In a famous scene, one cadet passes information to another by securely hiding it in the one library book no one ever checks out: Oswald Spengler’s The Decline of the West. Haupt said he discovered on a recent tour of The Citadel library that the ancient Spengler is still in the stacks, and hasn’t been checked out in years. There was also a note hidden between pages 308 and 309, just as there was in Conroy’s novel.

8. For Tony Skole, coaching Citadel baseball not just a job, but an 'important responsibility'

Coaching Citadel baseball is a job for which Tony Skole will be well paid. The new Bulldogs' coach will get a five-year contract and a starting salary of $125,000 per year. But for Skole — one of a handful of Bulldogs to play for both of The Citadel's coaching legends, Chal Port and Fred Jordan — the position is more of a family trust than it is a job."The responsibility that this position encompasses is so important to me," Skole said Tuesday as he was introduced as just the Bulldogs' third coach since 1965. "I don't want to let Coach Port down, or Coach Jordan, but especially I don't want to let down the former players."

Whatever economic freedom we enjoy in the world today is due, to a great extent, to the ideas and efforts of the classical liberals and economists of the first half of the nineteenth century. Inspired by the eighteenth-century writings of the French Physiocrats and Scottish Moral Philosophers (for example, David Hume and Adam Smith), they forcefully and insightfully demonstrated the errors and inefficiencies in Mercantilism (the eighteenth-century system of government planning and regulation).

1. Citadel All-American Odie Delaney was among first responders at Emanuel AME Church. His story of regret and healing.

It was a quiet Wednesday night in downtown Charleston's entertainment district. Charleston police officer Odie Delaney and his partner stopped by Five Guys on King Street for some burgers and fries, then parked their squad car near Marion Square. Delaney, an All-American wrestler at The Citadel who had grown up in Alaska, fired up some moose-hunting videos on YouTube as he sat in the car. "There were some bars having dollar-drink nights," he said. "It was that kind of night." Then the radio in the squad car crackled to life. "We've got an active shooter at Mother Emanuel Church," a voice on the radio said. "Active shooter, possibly still there." Delaney, in his second year on the force, felt the hair stand up on his arms. He and his partner hit the blue lights and sirens, racing down Meeting Street to Calhoun, then pulling up in front of Emanuel AME. They were among the first police officers on the scene on June 17, 2015 — a night that would change Charleston forever, and Odie Delaney, too.

2a. How to think

It's not just a source of debate about education here in Arkansas but about American education in general. For a simple national test indicates that, at a couple of hundred colleges across the country, at least a third of the senior class couldn't make a coherent argument for or against a thesis or evaluate the quality of the evidence behind it. Or understand the meaning of information presented in a graph or table...The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., says its mission is to assure that its graduates "are capable of both critical and creative thinking ... and possess the methodological skills needed to gather and analyze information." Which is a tall order indeed.

5a. We are still enrolled in the ‘School of Life’

I was inundated with graduation invitations four years ago, to say the least. I must have received about 12 to 15. Don't get me wrong. These were all young people, family, friends, a neighbor; they were people I cared about and I was pleased that they would remember me in this most special time of their lives. It was expensive to gift them all in a manner I was pleased with, also, but it was worth it every bit.I've kept up with most of them. One just graduated from the Citadel. Another is in the Marines, in Japan, at this very time. Another is in school studying nursing. And so it goes.This year I only received two graduation invitations. One was at the Citadel and without someone to join me, I was unable to attend that important day. At the time of the other graduation I had a prior commitment and couldn't make that one, either.
