6. Editorial: Why 1842 mattered

The year 1842 was a pivotal one in the history of the Roanoke Valley, even though Roanoke didn’t even exist then. Roanoke County was still practically new, having been cleaved off from Botetourt County just four years before. The most recent census counted just 5,499 people in the whole county, which was mostly farmland with scattered communities in Salem and Gainsboro...The year 1842 was particularly active. That year saw the founding of Williamette University in the Oregon Territory, the first college on the West Coast. In Indiana, a Catholic bishop founded Notre Dame. In South Carolina, The Citadel opened. In Pennsylvania, Villanova University opened. In Tennessee, Cumberland University opened.

The first combat submarine to sink an enemy ship also instantly killed its own eight-man crew with the powerful explosive torpedo it carried, new research has found. The HL Hunley fought for the confederacy in the US civil war and was sunk near North Charleston, South Carolina, in 1864. Speculation about the crew's deaths has included suffocation and drowning, but a new study claims that a shockwave created by their own weapon was to blame...That crew was interred in graves that ended up below The Citadel's football stadium for 50 years.

The horrific violence in Charlottesville, Va., has stirred painful memories of the night we lost nine neighbors, African Americans killed in the name of racial hatred while attending Bible study, two years ago last June. Much like the senseless murders at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the marching of white supremacists and neo-Nazis through the streets of Charlottesville has been a shocking reminder of the harrowing racism that still smolders at the core of the American experience, divides us as people, and holds us back as a nation.

The crazies have come out and want to fight about this freedom...It looks like we have to create a year-round season here to keep the citizenry from fighting among ourselves. Just think about a Saturday in South Carolina. Clemson, the University of South Carolina, South Carolina State, Citadel, Presbyterian College, Charleston Southern University and all the other colleges could be playing football on any given Saturday. Possibly a quarter of a million people could be at a football game. Think of this, all of those people are yelling and exercising their freedom of speech. They all have opposing views and yet we don’t have too many fights breaking out.

I was going to write about memories of school days, but the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia brought memories of a different kind...Arguing that all such statues in the South were meant to intimidate ignores its long reverence of the medieval warrior tradition. Mark Twain even quipped that the novels of Sir Walter Scott were responsible for the war. VMI, Virginia Tech, the Citadel and many private high schools were all-male military institutions until the late 20th Century; many liberal arts colleges and public universities had strong ROTC programs, sometimes required for the first two years. The military schools helped provide careers for many second and third sons, the ones who would not inherit the plantation.

4. S.C. Confederate monuments in spotlight as some call for change

Tucked away behind a stand of trees that line Main Street in Greenville, the Greenville County Confederate Monument stands nearly invisible to passers-by on the street. The monument is of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle. It bears an inscription on three sides, a poem to the dead soldiers in a land where the white flag is never waved...In South Carolina, the Heritage Act, passed in 2000 as a compromise to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse dome, prevents municipalities, schools or other institutions from changing or removing monuments. Some have tried, including The Citadel, which wanted to remove two Confederate battle flags from its chapel, and the city of Greenwood, which wanted to change the inscription on a plaque that designated those killed in World War II as “white” or “colored.”

With a Southern accent worthy of Margaret Mitchell’s Scarlett O’Hara, coupled with a timeless elegance always just beyond Miss O’Hara’s grasp, Mary Ross, WC ’58, worked alongside six governors and their families for three and a half decades at the South Carolina Governor’s Mansion. The Columbia, South Carolina, native says those were among the best years of her life, mostly because she never considered what she did as work...Built in 1855, the mansion originally served as faculty quarters for the Arsenal Academy, which, together with the Citadel Academy in Charleston, formed the South Carolina Military Academy, now known as The Citadel. The Arsenal was burned along with the city of Columbia a decade later by Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman’s Union forces. The structure was the only surviving building and became the state’s executive mansion in 1868, housing more than 30 governors and their families since.

At some point this football season, if the x’s and o’s align, your team’s freshman running back might hurdle a linebacker. And then you’ll bless the coaches, praise the boosters and silently thank the former players who made the school’s program so attractive to a talented young recruit...Craig Mosqueda, who coaches women’s volleyball at The Citadel, often hears from high school sophomores and juniors who want to one day bring their bump-set-spike talents to Charleston. Mosqueda appreciates the sentiment: When trying to woo an athlete, he says, “We obviously sell The Citadel, as far as who they’ll be, but selling the city is easy to do, because we’re the No. 1 travel destination in the world. We tell them there’s amazing food all over.”

3. South Carolina lawmakers say Confederate monuments will stay in place despite calls for their removal

While politicians in other states work to remove Confederate monuments from public spaces, lawmakers in South Carolina say there are no plans for anything similar in the Palmetto State...For example, representatives at The Citadel have voiced their desire to remove the Confederate Naval Jack from Summerall Chapel, but the school cannot lawfully remove it because of the Heritage Act. That law, passed in 2000, requires a two-thirds vote in the General Assembly to determine the fate of historic markers and monuments on public property.

3a. Charleston: eclipse nirvana, or eclipse apocalypse?

You’ve heard about some of the problems facing eclipse chasers as they flock to the path of totality across the United States. Massive traffic jams, eye damage, etc. Charleston, the Holy City by the sea and perhaps the coolest town in the path of the shadow, presents a few additional concerns...Just come early, said Ben Abzug, assistant general manager of the Charleston RiverDogs minor league baseball team. The 5,500-seat Joseph P. Riley Park will host an eclipse-watching gathering in the first half of the day, and a baseball game in the second, for the price of a ticket. Abzug showed off the new air-conditioned VIP suites (where tickets are $105) with views of the Ashley River and The Citadel military college.

4a. Environmentalist push to protect turtles, court orders seawalls down

Put in place a few years back to protect millions of dollars worth of property, seawalls on the Isle of Palms and Beaufort County’s Harbor Island will soon come down. A federal South Carolina judge has ruled the seawalls are a hazard to marine life. The main purpose of the devices, constructed temporarily, is to prevent beach erosion...The walls, which consist of plastic pipes that are placed into the sand and use connecting panels that allow an opening, were initially built on certain beaches in Harbor Island and Isle of Palms as part of a research project conducted by the Citadel.

7. Citadel Notes: Freshman Brandon Berry makes quick impact at fullback

Replacing All-American fullback Tyler Renew was always going to be one of the biggest challenges for The Citadel's football team in 2017. That challenge grew even more difficult when heir apparent Evan McField tore the ACL in his knee during spring practice. Almost two weeks into the Bulldogs' preseason practice, some answers at fullback are taking shape. Converted quarterback Brandon Rainey continues to make progress and freshman Brandon Berry is showing signs that he could help, as well.

Raymond Bost wore many hats during his 91 years – from Marine drill instructor at Parris Island to World War II veteran to student at Lenoir-Rhyne College to pastor to Lenoir-Rhyne University president, but his most important roles for those who knew him were as friend, father and husband. Bost passed away in July just six months after his wife Margaret died, but it’s the life they lived and shared that everyone will remember. They were married for more than 69 years...Raymond Bost was born near Maiden in 1925. Finishing high school, he enrolled at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. After his freshman year, he entered the United States Marine Corps where he served as a drill instructor at Parris Island and as a radar operator in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater, where he earned a battle star at Okinawa, according to a Jenkins Funeral Home obituary.

1. Court orders removal of seawalls to protect rare turtles

A federal judge has ordered the removal of seawalls on two stretches of South Carolina’s coast to protect rare turtles that are having difficulty nesting when they run into the plastic structures...The experimental walls, developed through research at The Citadel, are supposed to protect valuable oceanfront hotels, homes and condominium buildings without eroding beaches or hurting sea turtles that nest on beaches. Unlike traditional concrete or rock seawalls, the Harbor Island and Isle of Palms walls are made of plastic with slats in them and are supposed to be easy to remove.

A federal judge has ruled the experimental seawalls on the Isle of Palms and Beaufort County's Harbor Island must be removed because they interfere with turtle nesting. U.S. District Court Judge David Norton made his decision in a ruling issued Monday that cited "false crawls," or unsuccessful attempts by turtles to lay eggs...Researchers at The Citadel developed the plastic sea wall which was installed at the erosion-plagued north end of IOP in Wild Dunes. The wall provides specific protection for ocean facing property at Sea Scape Villas which is listed as an intervenor in the suit. An attorney for the condos had no comment.

After years of controversy, a federal judge has issued an order for the immediate removal of the ocean barriers on Harbor Island and Isle of Palms. The experimental erosion-control devices, called a Wave Dissipation System, were installed in 2015 to slow waves and build up sand behind the walls of heavy-duty pipe.Despite a ban on seawalls and other “hard erosion control devices” under state law, the walls were authorized by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control on certain beaches within Isle of Palms and Harbor Island for a one-year study of effectiveness by the Citadel.

Various retrospective commentaries have focused on the severity of the economic downturn, its impact on different markets and segments of the population, and the lessons from it. An especially important lesson to be learned is that this was a crisis caused by government policy, and not something inherent in a free market economy.

3. Neighbors loving neighbors

"For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another."~Galatians 5:13 One day back in the beginning of the year I was lamenting to my neighbor, Lt. Col. Kevin Dougherty, that my backyard was inaccessible to my 22-year-old daughter, Sarah Lyles Long, who is physically disabled and uses a power wheelchair. Because of numerous, large, exposed tree roots and ground that was often muddy, Long could not drive her wheelchair in our backyard. About a week later, Dougherty asked me to meet him in the backyard because he had a question for me. I thought for sure there was something unsightly that I needed to address in my yard as I am a single mom and not exactly always on top of trimming limbs and such. Instead, Dougherty, who is Assistant Commandant for Leadership Programs at The Citadel, made an incredibly generous offer: He and his comrades in the Commandant’s office wanted to build a pathway and deck for Long in order for her to access the backyard, and they were prepared to do so in one day, July 19.

At first it doesn’t seem like much of a threat for a third party to hear you talking to your Amazon Echo’s virtual assistant, Alexa. After all, saying “Alexa, order me an Uber” is already being shared with Uber, your credit card company and of course the Alexa app on your phone. Other requests are similarly mundane, such as requests for the time, the weather or a request for a knock-knock joke...The hack works by gaining access to the sixteen debugging pads on the bottom of the Echo. Those pads, which are basically electrical connectors, are underneath the rubber cover on the bottom of the Echo. Peel that cover off and you can boot the Echo from an SD card as explained by researchers at The Citadel in South Carolina.
