6. Facing Fitness Crisis, Army Leaders Look to Change Culture

The mission of the U.S. Army is to fight and win the nation's wars. To that end, soldiers at installations across the globe train each day. They jump from planes. Maneuver across vast training areas. Shoot artillery. Fly helicopters. And drive tanks. But while soldiers remain largely focused on potential enemies abroad, there's another fight underway within the ranks themselves.

A recent study led by The Citadel in South Carolina in collaboration with the U.S. Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association found that recruits from 10 Southern states -- 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 U.S. states."

6a. Former loadmaster reflects on decade with Air Force, prepares son for military

As a loadmaster, Judith Snyder was in charge of any supplies, or passengers, headed overseas; in some ways she likened herself to a flight attendant. Many of her overseas missions took her to Germany, Qatar, Iraq and Afghanistan. Though war waged in the Middle Eastern countries, Snyder hardly felt scared—thanks to the protection of her senior officers.

During challenging times, Snyder remained dedicated and focused on her ability to succeed. It was often the handwritten letters from home, from her mom and sister, that most encouraged her and kept her on track.

Like her uncle shared with her, Snyder often finds herself reliving her military moments in the stories she tells her middle son, Liam. She said the 9-year-old is already set on a similar career path. And in the mother’s mind, it’s never too early to prepare him or teach him gun safety.

“If he gets a bad grade or something like that, then we will go to The Citadel, and that’s where he wants to go to college, so I’ll take him there and just remind him of the future of what he needs to be looking forward to...and just saying, ‘The steps that you’re taking now is what’s going to provide for your future,’” Snyder said.

1. Returning to her Roots: How Connie Book intends to grow as a president this spring

On Jan. 29, about a month before she would become president of Elon University, Connie Book spent an entire day simply asking her predecessor questions. It was a beautiful, warm day in Charleston.

She and President Leo Lambert had met up earlier that day and together went to an Evening for Elon event with more than 100 Elon alumni, parents and friends that night. It was a time to reminisce on the past while looking to the future.During that event, she and Lambert conversed in a question and answer session. That's something she plans to do quite often in the coming months.

As her presidency begins, she intends on leading Elon in her own distinctive style. But she’s allotted herself a grace period, especially in her first year, to learn the intricacies of being president.

2. Live 5 Investigates: Sexual harassment costs us all

Experts say sexual harassment on the job costs us all. It hits your pocketbook with payouts by our state government, insurance, and places where you do business.

At The Citadel, two men complained of sexual harassment.

“In one case it was alleged that the victim was harassed by a woman, and another had alleged that his workplace was a hostile workplace because of some comments his co-workers were making,” said Col. John Dorrian.

A total of $27,000 was paid to the two men who complained.

“It’s not acceptable in any instance, no matter if you’re a man or a woman,” Dorrian said.

He said the entire Citadel workplace went through sexual harassment prevention training. The training is required for new hires, and renewal classes are required for all active employees.

Shoot artillery. Fly helicopters. And drive tanks. But while soldiers remain largely focused on potential enemies abroad, there's another fight underway within the ranks themselves.

Officials from U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command said they are working to fundamentally change the culture of fitness within the Army. Their efforts will impact everyone from the nation's newest recruits to its longest-serving soldiers.

A recent study led by The Citadel in South Carolina in collaboration with the U.S. Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association found that recruits from 10 Southern states — 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 U.S. states."

Those 10 states have accounted for more than 37 percent of the Army's new recruits in recent years, according to data from U.S. Army Recruiting Command.

4. Public Goods, National Defense, and Central Planning

The competitive market economy is a powerful institutional mechanism for bringing human ingenuity, energy and creativity to bear to improve both the material and cultural circumstances of multitudes of people around the world. Wherever relatively free market capitalism is operating, it succeeds in ending human poverty and brings about rising standards of living for hundreds of millions, indeed, now billions of people. Yet, it is argued that there are some things – “public goods” – that only government can effectively supply to everyone in society.

1. Citadel cadets who attended Parkland, Florida, high school pay respects after shooting

First-year Citadel cadet Michael Cassell was on his knees scrubbing a barracks floor when his mom texted him. "Shooting at MSD, check the news."

"MSD" meant Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, the school in Parkland, Fla., where Cassell graduated last year. He ran to his room to find the news on his laptop: A live stream from a helicopter looking down on his alma mater. Rumors spread. Old classmates texted each other in a frenzy desperate to know who had died and who had survived. Cassell went back to scrubbing floors but his mind was racing.

Seventeen people died and at least 14 were injured in the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Douglas High. Cassell and a fellow Citadel freshman, Justin Friedlander, received permission to leave campus this week to attend a series of funerals back home in south Florida.

3. Fabled Pizza MRE to hit the battlefield by next year, Army says

The fabled pizza military ration, known among U.S. service members as Meals Ready to Eat, will hit rucksacks and chow halls across the globe by next year, Army officials announced this week.

Army dietitians and engineers have spent the last three years developing a Pizza MRE that met the standards for durability, longevity and nutritional requirements for the service’s field rations.

The announcement of the new Pizza MRE comes weeks after an Army study found the service’s recruit pool is suffering from high rates of obesity in future soldiers. The study, conducted by the Citadel, the military school in Charleston, South Carolina, in collaboration with the U.S. Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association, found recruits from southern states suffer from the highest levels of obesity and are more prone to injury during basic training.

After a slow start to this season — for which Baucom is willing to take the blame — Najdawi has emerged as a Southern Conference player of the year candidate.

7. SoCon Shakeup: The Citadel Proving to be Giant Killers

Remember that run that Furman made in the 2014-15 basketball season? The Paladins became the first No. 10 seed to ever make the Southern Conference Tournament title game only to lose to league juggernaut and top overall seed Wofford, 67-64.

Fast forward three years and that dangerous team in Asheville could be wearing Citadel blue. The Bulldogs have quite simply been giant killers this season, and Duggar Baucom’s club has gained confidence each step of the way.

4. Citadel basketball pulls off upset of first-place ETSU

The 72 hours after The Citadel's loss to VMI on Saturday were not fun for anybody connected with Bulldogs' basketball. Losing for a second time to the last place team in the Southern Conference will have that effect.

Citadel coach Duggar Baucom had his team up early for a 6 a.m workout on Sunday, and stewed on the bus Monday during the five-hour drive to East Tennessee State. He was still steaming before tip-off Tuesday night at ETSU.

“Nobody was happy after the VMI game,” Baucom said. “I wasn't happy before this game, that's how long it lasted.”

Baucom and his Bulldogs had plenty to smile about after the game. Zane Najdawi scored 24 points, including a clutch 3-pointer with 34 seconds left, and The Citadel pulled off the upset of the SoCon season with an 84-82 victory over SoCon-leader ETSU before 4,911 fans at Freedom Hall.

3. Summerville's tiny Cummins Seminary has deep roots and a plan to modernize

Cummins Memorial Theological Seminary, a small school with roots dating back to Reconstruction, keeps a low profile in an old white building off of South Main Street. But with a new push for accreditation and a small infusion of cash, the seminary and its parent denomination, the Reformed Episcopal Church, hope to train Christian leaders for the next generation...The seminary was founded by the Rev. Peter Fayssoux Stevens, a former Confederate Army colonel who served as superintendent of The Citadel from 1859 to 1861. He is best known for giving the order to Citadel cadets at Morris Island to fire on the U.S. military transport ship Star of the West in January 1861 — arguably the first shots of the American Civil War, predating the Battle of Fort Sumter by three months.

4. Smart Cities: Charleston, South Carolina

With its stately antebellum homes and cobblestone streets, Charleston, South Carolina, is steeped in history, but the town is far from preserved in amber. Rather, the Holy City—so named for its long record of religious tolerance—has embraced the future by integrating modern urban design principles into the redevelopment of its historic core and surrounding areas and welcoming forward-thinking industry such as tech companies and Volvo’s first American factory, where production is scheduled to begin in late 2018.

It also has a rich cultural life, with a dining scene on par with cities several times its size, the annual performing arts festival Spoleto USA now in its 42nd year, and the International African American Museum slated to open in 2020. Joe Riley, who served as the city’s mayor for 41 years before his retirement in 2016, says that in order to attract visitors and businesses, a city must first provide a good quality of life for all the people who live there.

Those on the “progressive” political left often seem livid in their hatred and fear of anything and anyone who they label as being on the Republican or “conservative” side of the ideological spectrum. At the same time, many Republicans, and especially those among the supporters of the Trump Administration, see political and cultural enemies everywhere wanting to prevent America from being made “Great” again due to “deep state elites” manipulating everything for their own political purposes. This does not bode well for the country.

On Monday, Shawn and Mark Kahn prepared to say goodbye to their son. North Charleston Police Officer 31-year-old Ryan MacCluen died in a motorcycle accident last Thursday. He was off-duty at the time.

"We are holding up," said Mark. "The support that we've gotten from the community has really been what's allowed us to work through a really difficult time."

His parents said their hearts are both shattered and beaming with pride. They said he came to Charleston to attend the Citadel. They added a pervasive knee injury kept him on and off his feet for the last decade, but eventually he found his purpose.

"He felt he was making a difference. He wanted to get one more gun off the street," Shawn said. "He wanted to make things better, and he wanted to be a North Charleston police officer, not any other police officer, he chose North Charleston."

3. New device measures blink reflex parameters to quickly and objectively identify concussion

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that between 1.6 and 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the US. In addition, research indicates that nearly a quarter of annual traumatic brain injuries among children are sustained during high-contact/collision recreational activities or sports. Unfortunately, current methods for diagnosing and evaluating concussion severity are not very accurate. Medical professionals and field-side staff must base concussion-related decisions on overt symptom assessments (e.g., balance, neurocognition) and self-reports that often provide incomplete, misleading or conflicting information. Nancey Trevanian Tsai, M.D., clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and Dena Garner, Ph.D., professor of health, exercise, and sport science at The Citadel, collaborated to study whether a new device, the Blink Reflexometer, could help fill this urgent need for more objective measures of concussion severity and outcomes. The promising findings of that study are reported in the January issue of Cogent Engineering.

“It’s such a great program,” said Kimberly Newlove, whose 10-year-old daughter, Addison, joined the program last year.

Addison is matched with 1st Lt. Eraina D’Ambrosio, 109th Military Intelligence Battalion, 201st Expeditionary Military Intelligence Brigade. The two began their journey together about this time last year, and made such a great connection they continued the relationship throughout the year and plan to do so again this year. D’Ambrosio said she’d heard about the Big Brothers -Big Sisters program while she was in the ROTC program at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina.

Duggar Baucom has empathy for the dedicated college students inside those mascot costumes. “It gets awfully hot in there,” the Citadel’s head basketball coach said.

He knows from experience.

Baucom, before switching careers, spent five years as a city cop in Charlotte and four more as a North Carolina highway patrolman. Duties included long hours, tense encounters and a recurring role as McGruff The Crime Dog. Baucom wore the outfit representing a popular 1980s-era canine dedicated to taking “a bite out of crime” while talking to school children about prevention tips (McGruff — sans Baucom — continues to make appearances all over the country).

8. David Morbitzer signs on as new head football coach for Hanahan Hawks

It promises to be a smooth, almost seamless transition now that David Morbitzer has been named the head football coach of the Hanahan Hawks. Smooth and seamless that is until late May when Morbitzer’s coaching worlds collide. He also coaches track and field, and spring football will commence just about the time the thinclads are hanging up their spikes for the season.

Morbitzer is no stranger to Lowcountry football. The coach, who turns 31 on June 3, played at Lexington High School and graduated in 2004. He matriculated to Charleston to play for the Citadel Bulldogs. He graduated from the military school in 2008. Since then, he’s worked his way up the rungs of the coaching ladder and is now a head coach in two sports at a school that has produced an impressive list of athletic performers in the last decade or so.

2. 'You learn how to survive': Cleveland Sellers recalls the Orangeburg Massacre in Citadel lecture

A Citadel cadet down in front had a question for Cleveland Sellers, a survivor of the bloodiest civil rights event in South Carolina history: "Being faced with hate and violence every single day during the civil rights movement, how tempting was it to give in and fight fire with fire?"

Sellers, a civil rights leader and former president of Voorhees College, was at The Citadel's Holliday Alumni Center as a guest of former Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. Now in retirement, Riley co-teaches a history class at the public military college, with special guest lectures open to the public.

The title of Sellers' guest talk Tuesday afternoon was "My Walk Through Civil Rights History," and it had a time stamp on it: Fifty years ago this month, state troopers opened fire on unarmed student activists from South Carolina State University who were protesting a segregated bowling alley in Orangeburg.

5. New Device Uses Blink Reflexes to Detect Concussions on the Sidelines

Research shows that almost a quarter of traumatic brain injuries in children happen during high-contact activities, like football. But the methods that doctors and coaches use to detect and evaluate concussions are not as accurate as they should be. Doctors base their concussion-related decisions on symptom assessments that test things like balance and self-reports. These methods can frequently be incomplete or misleading, which leads to poor diagnoses.

A team of researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) saw this problem and developed a device to help doctors accurately assess concussions. Their new device is called the Blink Reflexometer™, a high-speed videography device.

"I was excited to see this type of technology coming out to help us better pinpoint and potentially aid in the diagnosis of concussion," said Dena Garner, Ph.D. professor of health, exercise and sports science at The Citadel. "Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury and we know it's under-reported because, so often, it goes unnoticed or undiagnosed. The chance to test a piece of equipment that can be used field-side to assess concussions was especially compelling."

Sellers will discuss that Tuesday when he speaks to former Mayor Joe Riley’s class at The Citadel. It’s free and open to the public, and a lot of people need to hear it.

3. New device measures blink reflex parameters to quickly and objectively identify concussion

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that between 1.6 and 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the US. In addition, research indicates that nearly a quarter of annual traumatic brain injuries among children are sustained during high-contact/collision recreational activities or sports. Unfortunately, current methods for diagnosing and evaluating concussion severity are not very accurate. Medical professionals and field-side staff must base concussion-related decisions on overt symptom assessments (e.g., balance, neurocognition) and self-reports that often provide incomplete, misleading or conflicting information.

Nancey Trevanian Tsai, M.D., clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and Dena Garner, Ph.D., professor of health, exercise, and sport science at The Citadel, collaborated to study whether a new device, the Blink ReflexometerTM, could help fill this urgent need for more objective measures of concussion severity and outcomes. The promising findings of that study are reported in the January issue of Cogent Engineering.

The Packers look to take their special teams to the next level in 2018. After Jason Simmons’ recent move to secondary coach, Zook will have a new special-teams assistant in Maurice Drayton, who spent the past two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

Drayton knows special teams because he played special teams for most of his own career. Growing up in Moncks Corner, S.C., the Packers’ new assistant always was the undersized overachiever who worked a minute longer than the rest.

That’s how he got his foot in the door during his first two years at The Citadel before starting his final two seasons at cornerback. Drayton then broke into the coaching ranks with his alma mater before returning in 2014 as defensive coordinator.

Since 1965, only two men have stood on the top step of The Citadel's dugout as the Bulldogs' head baseball coach.

One of them, the late Chal Port, led the Bulldogs to the 1990 College World Series, an almost unimaginable feat for a mid-major military school. The other, Fred Jordan, coached The Citadel to 12 Southern Conference championships and seven NCAA Tournament appearances over 26 seasons – on average, a SoCon title just about every other year and an NCAA regional berth every three or four years.

This season, a man who played for both Port and Jordan becomes just the third Citadel baseball coach in the last 53 years. Tony Skole faces the unusual challenge of upholding the legacy of his two coaches while also rebuilding a program that has struggled in recent seasons.

If the average starting small business owner is aware that they are entitled to a free credit report each year, they should also know that they are entitled to dispute the information found in their credit report. Small business owners should closely review their credit reports before selecting a business credit card. Too often, though, individuals do not take advantage of the free credit report offers from the major credit reporting bureaus or the information found in online sites like Credit Karma. And far too often, people starting a small business may not be aware of anomalies or errors in their credit reports until they apply for, and are denied, credit.

9. QB Jordan Black is Citadel's new team leader as spring practice starts

Jordan Black has started and won games at quarterback for The Citadel, and has played plenty of snaps in the last two seasons.

But the 6-1, 200-pound junior is playing a new role as the Bulldogs begin spring practice — unquestioned starter and team leader.

"It's definitely more of a leadership role for me to come in and try to get these guys right," said Black, who played in 10 games last year behind starter Dominique Allen. "But other than that, it's just like any other season, coming out here and playing football."

Every class in the course is open to the public.

Riley was instrumental in launching the effort to raise funds for the IAAM in in 2000. The museum is projected to open in 2020 near the Maritime Center at what was called Gadsden’s Wharf. More enslaved Africans were brought to and sold at Gadsden’s Wharf than any other place in North America.

6a. My Losing Season: Pat Conroy’s account of what not to do

In my never-ending attempt to be the very best coach I can be, I spend hour after hour studying great coaches on and off the court to see what ideas can be borrowed and used in our program...Research is not limited to just what to do, but can be just as educational when it provides knowledge of what not to do. One of the best examples I have found of what not to do comes from a book by Pat Conroy entitled, “My Losing Season.” Conroy is one of my favorite authors, with most of his books based on living in the South Carolina Lowcountry. “My Losing Season” is Conroy’s account of his senior basketball season at The Citadel in Charleston.

8. Famed author Pat Conroy was 'in his element' around Citadel basketball

Duggar Baucom had been basketball coach at The Citadel for about a year when he got the call.

Pat Conroy, the former Bulldog basketball player and best-selling author, had died in March of 2016. His widow, Cassandra King, called and asked if Baucom could provide two Citadel basketball players to be honorary pall-bearers and stand guard, in uniform, at the funeral.

"It was one of my greatest honors to be able to do that," said Baucom, who sent players Quinton Marshall and Warren Sledge to carry out the duty. "We went down for the funeral and Quinton and Warren were amazing and great representatives of The Citadel."

That request demonstrated just how much Citadel basketball meant to Pat Conroy. The Citadel will honor him at Saturday's 1 p.m. game against Furman with "Pat Conroy Recognition Day." Teammates, friends and family members will be part of a special ceremony at McAlister Field House.

2. Blink reflex parameters in baseline, active, and head-impact Division I athletes

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 1.6–3.8 million concussions occur each year. Research cites that 21% of traumatic brain injury in children/youth results from participation in sports and recreational activities. However, current methods to assess concussion, which includes balance, neurocognitive, and self-report assessments, provide conflicting validity and reliability. Thus, many sports medicine professionals seek more objective measures to assess the severity and outcomes of a concussive event. The purpose of this study was to utilize a novel technology to determine if there were differences in blink reflex parameters among baseline, active, and concussed athletes.

9. 2018 Reese's Senior Bowl

Multiple collegiate seniors took part in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. NFL scouts and coaches were in Mobile all week to evaluate these players to determine how well their talents will transition to the NFL. There were many players that stood out in the three days of practices and then there were some that stood out in the game on Saturday.

Four local players used the Senior Bowl to not only make a name for themselves but also to elevate their stock to be drafted higher in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Former Daphne Trojan and the Citadel Bulldogs inside linebacker Myles Pierce took great pride in the Senior Bowl week. Although Pierce did not record any statistics in the game, Pierce was efficient in the practice settings, where scouts and coaches focus the most.
