It was right there for the taking. The Citadel men's basketball team gave league front runner ETSU all it could handle Monday night and even led with just 1:46 to play in regulation.

2. New South Carolina water pollution research from The Citadel points to tires, eco-plastics

Tiny black shreds make up nearly all of 7 tons of microscopic plastic particles found floating in Charleston Harbor at any given time. The source was a mystery for researchers, until recently. It's shreds worn off braking tires.

Meanwhile, plastic bags marketed as eco-friendly take as long or longer than standard plastic bags to break down in the same waters.

Those two disturbing findings, made by researchers at The Citadel, come as state legislators are dealing with a bill to make it illegal for cities and counties to ban plastic bags. House Bill 3529, carried over from the 2017 session, is back in front of the Legislature and could be taken up again as soon as Tuesday.

3. Citadel study found that Army recruits from southern states are less fit, more likely to be injured

According to a research study released earlier this month by The Citadel, in conjunction with the U.S. Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association, the fitness level of U.S. Army recruits from 10 southern states poses concerns regarding readiness and national security.

The study found that recruits from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas are significantly less fit, and consequently are more likely to encounter training related injuries than recruits from other states.

4. Gibbes’ economic impact ripples throughout Lowcountry

A study by The Citadel’s Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business found that The Gibbes Museum of Art made an economic impact of $120 million on the Charleston region in its first year since renovations finished, surpassing museum officials’ expectations.

5. Paul Leroy-Beaulieu: A Warning Voice About the Socialist Tragedy to Come

The Russian Revolution of November 1917, now being marked by its centenary, ushered in a hundred years of political tyranny and terror, economic suffering, exploitation and corruption, along with unimaginable mass murder, among the tens of millions of people who came under the control and command of Marxist inspired socialist regimes around the world. But before this tragic episode occurred in human history, indeed, decades before Vladimir Lenin and his cohort of communist revolutionaries seized power in Russia, there were clear and insightful critics of socialism who explained much of what was to be in store in any attempt to implement and impose a collectivist utopia on humanity.

6. Bucs pick up narrow win at The Citadel to move to 10-0 in SoCon

The ETSU men’s basketball team will return to Johnson City with its 13-game winning streak intact, but not before The Citadel Bulldogs took a serious shot at ending the Buccaneers remarkable run.

With ETSU having rallied to take the lead late at 73-71 with 6.1 seconds left, The Citadel’s Alex Reed had a wide open 3-point shot at the buzzer miss the mark, as the Bucs escaped with a two-point victory in Southern Conference hoops action Monday night inside McAlister Field House.

7. Citadel braces for three home games against SoCon's best

As sports slogans go, "20 minutes we can be proud of" might not have the ring of "40 minutes of hell" or even "Win one for the Gipper."

But it worked well enough for The Citadel to claim its first Southern Conference basketball road win at Mercer last Saturday.

And Bulldogs coach Duggar Baucom hopes it can work again this week as The Citadel faces three of the SoCon's best at home: league-leading ETSU on Monday, Wofford on Thursday and Furman on Friday.

1. The Citadel unveils new human simulation lab

The Citadel's Swain Department of Nursing unveiled its new 2,000 square foot human simulation lab Friday. In this lab, cadets can learn medical skills in an interactive way on realistic mannequins.

Nursing students can learn basic skills like measure blood pressure and pulses. They can advance to more critical situations with the mannequins like dealing with heart attacks and strokes.

There are six mannequins that are high-fidelity and low-fidelity," Ruth Henderson said. She runs the human simulation lab for nursing students at The Citadel. "It literally is life or death. We can prepare our students for emergency situations."

Air Force is a very good program and we are looking forward to competing against them again tomorrow, and anytime you can win a rivalry matchup against VMI, it's a good day."

804 Ballers: Zane Najdawi, A.J. Gaston find expanded roles

At the beginning of the month, Zane Najdawi (Cosby) was averaging 8.8 points per game for The Citadel. As February gets set to begin, that number is looking drastically different. Heading into Saturday’s Southern Conference matchup with Mercer, Najdawi’s scoring average had jumped to 13.1 points per game thanks to a four-game hot streak.

The junior scored 20 or more points in each game during the span, including a career-high 37-point outburst against Chattanooga. The scoring increase has been two-fold. His touches began to increase as he finished more around the rim (72.6 percent from the field during the stretch), but also out of necessity. The Bulldogs rotate six freshman, and the coaching staff was seeking consistency from the junior post player.

1. New human simulation lab unveiled by Citadel’s Swain Department of Nursing

When learning how to treat patients, nursing cadets and students at The Citadel now have the ability to become proficient at inserting needles, checking vital signs, and even responding to heart attack or stroke symptoms before they begin to help treat live human patients. The Swain Department of Nursing at the college has a six-bed, high-tech human simulation lab. The 2,000 sq. ft. lab features five adult manikins and one pediatric-sized simulator that replicate patient condition scenarios ranging from mild to acute.

The new facility includes patient rooms with equipment and supplies found in hospitals, a classroom, and a control room where instructors manipulate the simulated scenarios, observe and videotape the students’ actions during replicated patient events. Four of the human simulators are mid-fidelity, and two are high-fidelity, meaning more capable of exhibiting complex health conditions.

A new scholarly study documenting the poor health of southern military recruits has been much in the news of late ( Newsweek , January 11, 2018).

In the study, published online in the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice last week, a team of researchers organized under the auspices of The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, found that male and female army recruits from ten southern states were significantly less fit and much more likely to become injured while on duty than male and female recruits from other parts of the country.

Plenty of players at the Reese's Senior Bowl will tell you being invited to the annual all-star game is a dream come true and something they've looked forward to their whole lives. When Myles Pierce says that, there's not an iota of hyperbole involved.

"This is something that's been on my mind since I started playing football at maybe 4 or 5," Pierce said, "so I've been looking forward to it basically my whole life."

An inside linebacker from The Citadel, Pierce was aware of the Senior Bowl at such an early age because his father, Michael Pierce, came to the 1990 game as a running back from Tulane.

3. Bonvoyage, Citadel cadets set sail to Caribbean

The sail flapped in the wind as the ropes were tied. The lines were whipped and the hatches were battened on the Spirit of South Carolina; all hands were on deck. Cadets from The Citadel sailed out of Charleston Harbor at 10 a.m. on Jan. 21, to embark on a semester-long study abroad to the Caribbean.

For the next four months, 15 cadets will spend more than 90 days at sea learning the measures of maritime through team-building exercises. At each port-of-call they will engage in biological studies of Caribbean ecosystems, including helping rebuild a manatee preserve that was recently destroyed in Hurricane Irma. In addition, academia from The Citadel will meet the cadets at the ports-of-call to administer seminars on stewardship and focus on the social, political and economic aspects of Caribbean-island countries.

8. The Senior Bowl is a Pierce Family Tradition

You could say being a part of the Senior Bowl has become a tradition for the Pierce family. “My dad’s been involved in the Senior Bowl for over 20 years," said Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Michael Pierce. “It’s a dream come true to me. I grew up coming to the game. My dad played in the game coming out of Tulane. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I started playing football," said linebacker Myles Pierce. Myles Pierce is a linebacker from the Citadel, but you may remember him from his playing days at Daphne High School. His dad played in the Senior Bowl and his brother Michael now plays for the Baltimore Ravens.

9. 16 Senior Bowl players show NFL prospects can come from anywhere

The Reese's Senior Bowl players hope to show the NFL evaluators gathered in Mobile this week that they're worth a draft pick. For 16 of the players, though, there's a little more to it than that. They also have to prove they belong at the all-star game in the first place.

"A lot of scouts here, they've heard of me," said Myles Pierce, an inside linebacker from The Citadel who was a prep standout at Daphne. "They've seen a couple of clips, but they haven't seen me compete with these guys that are from the bigger schools across the nation. So it puts a chip on my shoulder. I feel like I have a point to prove, and I'm looking forward to it."

When the South Carolina Corps of Cadets’ Class of 2018 graduates May 5, they will be addressed by one of the institution’s preeminent leaders, Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, USAF (Retired), who will retire shortly thereafter. Rosa announced his retirement at the beginning of the 2017-18 academic year, marking his 12th year as his last.

“We are excited that Lt. General John Rosa, one of America’s great leaders, will be our commencement speaker.

2. Citadel Ranked #1 Public College Where Students Earn the Most Scholarship Funding

The Citadel was ranked #1 out of more than 500 public schools in the U.S. on this list for students earning the most financial aid: Unlike student loans, scholarships do not require repayment after school is done which earns them the nickname “free money.” The idea is fairly simple. A third-party institution offers a financial aid award to applicants who qualify with a certain background, skill set, major, school, or any other defining characteristic (it’s up to the offering organization to decide). Qualifying recipients can reduce the cost of their education (and the impact of student loans) with funding from a scholarship.

Needless to say, they’re a big deal if you’re a prospective college student, so we decided to highlight which colleges’ student bodies were taking advantage of scholarship aid the most. On that note, we compiled a list of public colleges in the United States where undergraduates earn the most scholarship funding. The students at these colleges seem to be taking advantage of that “free money” the most; check out the list to see if you’re a part of one of those student bodies.

5. Citadel linebacker Myles Pierce already has job offer from top accounting firm. But first, the Senior Bowl

Citadel linebacker Myles Pierce will graduate from the military school in May with an outstanding grade point average and a job offer from Ernst & Young, one of the "Big Four" accounting firms.

"They offered me a job in the risk advisory department," said Pierce, who made the fall semester academic all-Southern Conference team with a 3.86 GPA in business administration. "I'm really blessed to get that."

But Pierce, who helped The Citadel to SoCon football championships as a sophomore and junior, is not quite ready to trade in his playbook for spreadsheets. The senior has been invited to play in the Senior Bowl on Saturday in his hometown of Mobile, Ala.

Those events were in some doubt when the federal government shut down last week. But with the government back in business on Tuesday, the events will go on as scheduled, a school spokesman said.

However, a study released earlier this month by researchers at the Citadel, one of the military's major universities, issues a warning. Though the United States might not be done in by North Korean rockets or Russian disinformation campaigns, the American empire might just crumble because Floridians and Southerners are getting too fat.

A study from the researchers at The Citadel, the University of South Carolina, the American Heart Association and the U.S. Army Public Health Center found Army recruits from the South are less physically fit and more overweight than recruits from other parts of the country — and they’re getting injured more often, too.

I beg you,” said Buoniconti, 77, who is mostly confined to a wheelchair now...Buoniconti already suffered a crushing personal crisis years ago when his son Marc, playing football at The Citadel, was paralyzed from the neck down after colliding with another player on the field.

1. South Carolina National Guard leader offers cadets advice at The Citadel Army ROTC

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny,” is a proverb that was shared with U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets from The Citadel during a leadership lab held January 11, 2018.

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. R. Van McCarty, deputy adjutant general for South Carolina and 1982 graduate of The Citadel, shared the quote he found showcased in Dr. Len Marrell’s book, “In Search of Ethics” to highlight the importance of integrity in decision making. He read the quote during his presentation to Freshmen and Sophomore cadets as their guest speaker, providing insight on professional development and answering questions about military leadership.

A recent study reveals that US Army recruits from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas “are significantly less fit, and consequently are more likely to encounter training-related injuries than recruits from other US states.”

The findings, published by South Carolina military college The Citadel, the US Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association, reveal that regardless of gender, soldiers from those states are 22 to 28 percent more likely to be injured during training.

James Bezjian returned from Scotland in December with a trove of Bronze Age and Byzantine artifacts stashed on a hard drive.

A sculpture of a woman with a bowl in her lap, a tiny coin bearing the face of Medusa, and dozens of other antiquities were preserved in minute digital detail by a three-dimensional scanner.

Bezjian is the director of the Innovation Lab at The Citadel's Baker School of Business. He spent 12 days testing out the new scanners on artifacts held by the University of St. Andrews. After getting the hang of the devices and capturing some sharply focused 3D images, he plans to teach undergraduate students to use them in the field this semester.

Among the annual commemorations of the civil rights icon is Rep. Wendell Gilliard’s Portrait Awards where he honors local leaders — those who don’t typically garner lots of public attention — by presenting them with a framed portrait of King and singing their praises.

This year’s event, held Sunday at the Charleston Music Hall, featured keynote speaker Mary Thornley, president of Trident Technical College, as well as authors Karen Wright Chisolm and Margie Pizarro, Rep. James Smith and several others.

Music and movement was provided by the Charleston Development Academy Choir, The Citadel Choir, Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church Choir and the Karen Mims Praise Dancers.

6. Letter: Reggie Burgess a deserving leader

Reggie Burgess gave a guest lecture to my criminal justice class at The Citadel in 2014. He spoke frankly about the differences of policing affluent and poor neighborhoods. He brought along a slide that said “I am a product of my environment — North Charleston: Union Heights, George Legare, North Park Village, Liberty Hill.”

He told my optimistic students his story of having a successful college football career and getting a tryout with the New York Jets, but of ultimately returning to the tarmac of Charleston airport with the realization that he needed a job, which he found with the North Charleston Police Department.

My students are often unaware of the forces of gravity many of them will face after leaving the nurturing college environment, and some might appreciate Burgess’ story increasingly in years to come.

"Alabama was better in the clutch and they were better at the end. They are very well coached and the match was a hard-fought one.

1.a Physically fit recruits for Army are hard to find. Especially in these states (story based on Citadel-led research)

The Army's problem of finding physically fit recruits at a time of rising obesity in the United States is especially acute in the South — where it traditionally draws a high percentage of soldiers, a study published Wednesday finds. Army recruits from Southern states are generally in poorer physical condition than those from other parts of the country, concluded researchers at The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, S.C. “This has a real impact on national security,” said Daniel Bornstein, a researcher who led the study. The regional distinction also suggests that government policy can influence fitness, and the South may be falling behind the rest of the country. “Some of the greatest public health achievements have come as the result of state-level policy change,” the study found.

2a. Citadel experience
Although I am not a graduate of The Citadel, I was shocked by the recent article about Shannon Faulkner returning to The Citadel. Your reporter wrote, “Her enrollment ended in threats and heartbreak as she was forced to walk out.” This is patently false. She was not “forced” to walk out. She quit very shortly after arriving, like thousands of male cadets in the generations before her who lacked the necessary physical and mental preparation. As for the threats she received, I do not know what happened before her arrival, but I know incoming knobs hear very little other than threats their freshman year, unless they are in the classroom. Ms. Faulkner is the quintessential example of “right cause, wrong person.” The following year, Nancy Mace entered the Corps, excelled, and graduated in 1999. Nancy Mace was the first qualified female candidate to attend The Citadel and wears the ring because she deserves it.

Henry Berlin, beloved owner of Charleston fixture Berlin's Clothiers, dies at 93
Henry Berlin, who ran the Charleston fixture Berlin’s Clothiers through the second half of the 20th Century, died Wednesday. He was 93. Berlin inherited the retail shop at Broad and King streets from his father in 1958, then ran the business until he retired in 2004. His grandfather emigrated from Eastern Europe and opened the store in 1883. Friends, neighbors and routine customers knew Berlin as a man-about-town with a sly sense of humor. Born and raised in Charleston, Berlin went to The Citadel for two years before he enlisted in the Navy to serve in World War II. When he returned, he finished earning his college degree at the University of South Carolina. After a short stint in law school at the University of Georgia, Berlin decided to move back to Charleston to work in the family business. When his father retired, he took it over with his brother, Alwyn, who died in 1978.

The Citadel loses money on beer sales at football games

Selling beer at a football game might seem a sure way to make money, but The Citadel learned otherwise last season. The Citadel lost money selling beer at home football games in 2017, and it's unclear whether beer sales will continue at Johnson Hagood Stadium for the 2018 season. The school sold $21,718.24 worth of beer at five home games last season, The Citadel's first effort to sell beer in public areas of the stadium. But expenses to sell the beer, including $5,000 per game in rental costs to set up a beer garden, amounted to $32,858.62, leaving a net loss of $11,140.38. The Citadel's athletic department split the loss with corporate partner Sticky Fingers, leaving each party with a loss of $5,570.19 for the season. Interim athletic director Rob Acunto told a committee of The Citadel's Board of Visitors on Wednesday that the school's beer vendor would not partner with The Citadel next season if the beer garden setup remains the same.

1. CofC establishes center for binational economic agreements

A new center at the College of Charleston is working to recruit high-tech companies from Israel and Estonia to work with companies in South Carolina, as well as supporting existing agreements between South Carolina and the two countries. The Center for the Global Alliance for South Carolina will help businesses and research institutions in the Palmetto State connect with one another, as well as counterparts in Israel and Estonia. The alliance’s goal is to build a business and research support system that attracts smaller high-tech companies from Israel and Estonia, as well as potentially other countries in the future, to work alongside South Carolina companies or relocate operations to the Palmetto State. The alliance is a collaboration of Advanced Technology International, the Medical University of South Carolina, The Citadel, the University of South Carolina, Clemson University and SCRA, as well as CofC and the Commerce Department.

1. Statehouse hopefuls Cindy Boatwright, Nancy Mace get testy at candidate forum

The two women fighting to represent South Carolina's House District 99 shook hands with each other at the beginning of a candidate forum Monday night, but not at the end. At the start, both Republican Nancy Mace and Democrat Cindy Boatwright agreed on a host of issues. Both pointed to a need for ethics reform, pledged to be transparent with constituents and questioned the effectiveness of Act 388, which exempted owner-occupied homes from the property taxes that fund school operations. By the fourth question, though, the differences started cropping up.

2. State of the Nation: Progressives, Conservatives, and Trump

Anyone reading the news and especially the political “liberal” and conservative commentaries might easily conclude that he is living in a world of two parallel political universes. It is as if modern American liberals and conservatives are, respectively, occupying alternative realities about how they look at the economy and culture of the country, and evaluate Donald Trump and his administration. The common element in both, however, is the existence of an intrusive and controlling government. Read the “progressive” liberal press and you would easily presume that America is about to descend into a fascist dictatorship led by racist thugs determined to introduce twenty-first century eugenics that is supplemented with an open season on wonton police murdering of anyone who lacks blond hair and blue eyes. And all for the benefit for a financial “one percent” who share the same skin pigmentation. At the spearhead of this new Nazi “Amerika” is Donald Trump. Illegitimate president, race-baiter-in-chief, and who is mentally unstable, while being a puppet or dupe of Vladimir Putin, who hopes to use Trump to restore Russia as the prime player on the global stage.

Catherine Templeton raises $721,000 to close out 2017 in her S.C. governor bid
Former two-time state agency head Catherine Templeton raised $721,000 during the last three months of last year in her bid to win the 2018 Republican nomination for governor, her campaign said Tuesday. The Mount Pleasant attorney had $2.3 million cash on hand as of Dec. 31, campaign spokeswoman Mollie Young said. Templeton has been in a tight fundraising fight with Republican Gov. Henry McMaster in her first election. McMaster, a former state attorney general and lieutenant governor, will release his latest contribution totals Wednesday, the state's deadline for campaign disclosure reports.

Former Saluda RB Brooks leaves The Citadel for better fit at Limestone
Malik Brooks could never get comfortable. He started out at B-back. Didn’t like it. He moved to A-back. Didn’t take. Brooks knew the problem wasn’t the position, it was the offense. The idea of playing in triple-option appealed to Brooks when The Citadel was recruiting him out of high school, but the more he played in it, the less he enjoyed it. “Going through the season, I just knew that the offense wasn’t for me. I belong in the spread offense,” Brooks said. “I tried to get used to the triple-option, but it was just something I couldn’t get used to.” The spread is the offense run at Saluda High School, which is where Brooks set a school-record 4,749 yards rushing and scored 73 touchdowns over a four-year career. Brooks rushed for 1,935 yards and 35 scores as a senior, winning the Index-Journal Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year and securing a trip to the 2016 Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas. So, Brooks decided his first fall with the Bulldogs would be his last, and late Saturday night, he announced via Twitter his intention to transfer from The Citadel to Limestone College, where he will be a redshirt freshman.

1. South Carolina's GOP, trade and military presence has produced key players in Trump administration

Part of the explanation is that a Republican administration naturally leads to more high-profile roles for Republican politicians — of which there are plenty in a consistently red state like South Carolina. "Just the fact that Trump is president allows South Carolina politicians to be involved in foreign policy in a way that they were not under an Obama administration," said Scott Buchanan, a political science professor at The Citadel. But two other factors also helped produce the outward-looking focus of many South Carolina politicians: the state's heavy reliance on international trade and its significant presence of military installations and veteran communities.

2. Shannon Faulkner returns to The Citadel in March, this time at school's invitation
When Shannon Faulkner steps on The Citadel campus in March, it will mark 25 years since she attempted to join the all-male Corps of Cadets. Back then, there was hostility after school officials admitted her under the assumption that she was a male. This time, she's coming as an invited guest. Faulkner will take part in the school's "Pat Conroy Symposium" on March 3 to honor the prolific South Carolina novelist and Citadel graduate who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2016 at age 70. He was a big supporter of Faulkner and her effort to break the school's discriminatory gray-clad gender line by way of federal court challenge. Faulkner said she has visited the school only once since that fateful week in August 1995 when she attempted to become a cadet. Her enrollment ended in threats and heartbreak as she was forced to walk out.

3. The Citadel's Business Bowl helps launch young entrepreneurs
Citadel freshman C.J. Walker admitted to some nervousness before he made his "elevator pitch" at the school's Bulldog Business Bowl. "It's a little bit nerve-wracking," the cadet from Charleston Collegiate School said. "But compared with being a knob in the barracks, it was fine." Walker pitched his business idea — repurposing the rain tarps of baseball teams into other products — to eight judges in the "elevator pitch" stage of The Citadel's fourth annual Business Bowl in December. His five-minute presentation was followed by 10 minutes of pointed questions from the judges, who whittled the field down from nine teams to five. Those five teams will further develop their business plans before making more detailed presentations in April. The winning team will receive $10,000 in seed money for its start-up company, and the runner-up will receive $5,000. The Business Bowl is open to all Citadel students, whether cadets, day students, veteran students or the evening program.

4. Neurological Assessment in the Blink of an Eye?
The blink reflex has been shown to be sensitive to a number of neurological insults, including traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease, suggesting that it could be a useful tool for neurological assessment. Although electromyography (EMG)-derived time metrics were used to analyze the blink reflex as early as the 1950s, quantitative assessment of the blink response was never adopted widely in clinical practice, in part because existing technology was somewhat cumbersome and uncomfortable. Moreover, EMG is a highly sensitive technology requiring strict ambient parameters and was not easily performed outside the health care setting, limiting the applications of the blink reflex as a diagnostic indicator of neurological health. Advances in video and computer technology -- including improved digital image capture, higher frame speeds and higher processing speeds -- have now put portable, noninvasive, quantitative assessment of the blink within reach.

5. Citadel to Pentagon: Caloosa Cougar paves path
With nearly three decades of service invested in the U.S. Army, a former Caloosa Elementary School student was recently assigned to the Pentagon at the Department of Defense.Senior Lt. Col. Byron Christopher Pateras, who was enrolled at the school until fifth grade when his family moved to Maryland, took over the new position in October. Pateras is a senior ranking officer in the Army G-3/5/7, Headquarters, Department of the Army, and is preparing to make colonel one day. "I'm responsible for the policy, planning and strategy for the Western Hemisphere, which is Latin America," he said. "I have influence, and I have direct communication - it's a huge responsibility." The father of three teens, Pateras enlisted in the Army when he was only 17 himself. "I told myself I'd do 20 years and get out," he said. "I always like giving back to the country," Pateras noted of why he has stayed. He first became involved with the military after joining the JROTC program at his high school. At the time, Pateras was the first in his family to follow a military career path and he is still the only one. Pateras served for four years and then entered The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

6. Capturing the Power of Their Stories: “Las Voces del Lowcountry” Reveals Latino Experiences
While working as a counselor to Spanish-speaking immigrant families in the Charleston area for twelve years, Marina López was moved by the stories she heard: stories that told of struggles and despair but also revealed hopes and dreams. “During this time, I observed a change in the way immigrants were portrayed in the public discourse and media outlets,” said López. “These public ideas became more and more negative and stereotypical and contrasted sharply with the diversity of experiences I was exposed to in my daily practice with Latino families.” Determined to record these personal accounts and highlight their significance, López earned a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of South Carolina and began exploring ways to properly convey the experiences of Latinos in the Lowcountry. After López met Citadel history professor Kerry Taylor, Ph.D., at an oral history workshop, they embarked on a documentation project that would span several years and culminate in “Las Voces del Lowcountry.”

7. Holiday reading list idea: “Into the Shadows” by Lt. Col. Michael Brady
Col. Michael Brady U.S. Army (retired) brings much more to a first- time novel than your average spy enthusiast. Brady served as a career tactical and strategic intelligence officer for the United States. He was also the director of the Presidential Emergency Operations Center at the White House under George Bush during 9/11. The former Army Airborne Ranger is now retired from military intelligence, but is sharing his experiences and expertise through a new novel and by teaching cadets and students at his alma mater. Brady, a member of The Citadel Class of 1990, writes a regular column for Asia Times. He is also the USA contributor to the Sunday Spy Show, an international podcast produced in the United Kingdom, and most recently, he has become a novelist. The first in what may be a series of novels, Into the Shadows: The Fear, was released in late 2017. Amazon reviewers are calling it “gripping,” and an “outstanding read

8. What's ahead in 2018 for the South Carolina economy

Banking - South Carolina’s banking industry will join a small club in 2018, as the Palmetto State’s first federally insured startup lender in more than eight years opens its doors. Beacon Community Bank has said it plans to take deposits and making loans in early January. It’s one of few true newcomers in the country to obtain government approval to operate since the last recession. The downturn, which started a decade ago and left deep scars, triggered a series of failures, forced mergers and regulatory pullbacks that sharply cut the ranks of small banks. The freeze is beginning to thaw after the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Federal Reserve began to loosen their restrictions, but to date, few have taken the plunge. Regulators have approved just 11 charter applications since 2013, including one misfire, and are now reviewing requests from five others. The last South Carolina startup to successfully complete the process was Myrtle Beach-based Coastal Carolina National Bank, which opened in June 2009. Beacon will operate from East Bay Street in Charleston. Its lead investors include Lt. General John Rosa, the retiring president of The Citadel.

9. Built by slaves and plantation wealth, South Carolina colleges look to tell their own stories fully

The man's name was Abraham. In a grainy 1889 photo of the plantation home belonging to Furman University's namesake family, he appears standing by the portico with his face obscured in foliage and shadows. Under the system of apartheid and chattel slavery that defined the United States economy from its early days, Abraham had lived part of his life as the legal property of James C. Furman, the university's first president. Researchers only know his first name because someone wrote it on the back of the photograph. The rest of his life remains hidden from view. In the fall, faculty and students at Furman University began sifting through their own history to more fully tell the stories of Abraham and other slaves like him whose labor helped establish the school. They will present their findings and recommendations in the spring. The movement has spread to South Carolina. The Citadel, Clemson University, Furman and the University of South Carolina have all joined the Universities Studying Slavery Consortium, based at the University of Virginia. Each school's history is unique, and so is its approach to telling it.

9.3 Emmett Davis

There is perhaps no businessman in Greenwood’s history who can claim the kind of resume and statewide clout that Emmett Davis could. When Davis died May 17 at the age of 87, he left behind a legacy that stretched from the urban corridors of Charleston to the halls of The Citadel. In June 1954, Davis and his partner Phil Floyd established an engineering firm in the back of a liquor store, using $600 they pooled together. By the time of Davis’ death, Davis & Floyd had grown into one of the Southeast’s most trusted names, accumulating a versatile portfolio that includes private development, federal and local government contracts, transportation and waste water management. That includes Uptown Greenwood streetscape improvements and development of the Greenwood County Library, repair of the Fort Robins Air Force Base in Georgia, a Charleston Airport traffic study and transportation engineering services for the $385 million Conway Bypass. Davis’ list of accolades is vast. Order of the Palmetto recipient in 2009. Named by the Index-Journal in 2000 as one of the 100 most influential people of the century in the Lakelands. Inductee into the South Carolina Business Hall of Fame in March. Selected to the Greenwood County Hall of Fame in 1994 — recipient of an honorary “doctor of engineering” degree from The Citadel, his alma mater, in 2007.

Citadel basketball plunges into 'scary' SoCon play
The Citadel's pre-conference basketball slate did not go as anybody had planned, if only because the Bulldogs lost their top player just six games into the season. Guard Preston Parks, the Southern Conference freshman of the year in 2016-17, was dismissed from the squad on Nov. 28, saying he would seek a transfer. The Bulldogs blew a 20-point second-half lead against Marist in their first game without Parks, but also managed an 84-82 win over Colonial Athletic Association foe James Madison without the 6-1 guard.

Wofford outpaces The Citadel, 109-92
Wofford withstood the hectic style of The Citadel and took a 109-92 win Saturday night in Richardson Indoor Stadium. The Citadel uses a full-court trapping defense and a quick-trigger offense, leading the country in possessions per game. The Terriers were down by as many as 10 points in the first half against that frantic pace but regained their composure and never trailed in the second half. “We won and nobody got seriously hurt. That’s all I care about,” Wofford head coach Mike Young said. “Whatever I told them (before the game) wasn’t very good. Take care of the ball, know you’re going to get fouled and take the (3-point) arc away. We didn’t do those things very well. But we scored 109 points and we won going away.” Wofford (10-5, 2-1 Southern Conference) used a 15-2 run late in the first half for a 34-31 advantage and pushed that to 45-37 by the break. The Bulldogs (5-10, 0-3) got as close as 50-48 in the second half and it was 69-65 with less than 12 minutes remaining.
