1. Tires: An Emerging Threat to Our Waterways, Our Seafood, and Ourselves?
When you’re driving, every time you brake, speed up, or hug an S-curve, you leave tiny flecks of tire behind. Wind and rain wash those itty-bitty black bits into ditches, creeks, storm drains, and culverts. Smaller channels give way to larger ones until finally all that detritus hits the plume of a mighty river and flows out to sea. And once it’s there, who knows where those petroleum-based smithereens might wind up. Maybe in the belly of a shrimp. Maybe in your oyster shooter. “Over the lifetime of a tire, about 30 percent of it wears down and is deposited on the roadway surface or in adjacent areas as microscopic particles,” says John Weinstein, an environmental toxicologist at the Citadel, also known as the Military College of South Carolina. “Every year in the U.S., it has been estimated that two million tons of tire particles are released into the environment.”

2. A Charleston institution turns 175: The Citadel celebrates its past, looks to future
The Citadel marked its 175th birthday Saturday with a full day of events across Charleston, including a march of cadets from their current campus by Hampton Park to Marion Square, where the school first came to life in 1843. In that year, an inaugural class of 20 cadets reported to an arsenal building — already called "The Citadel" by locals — that would become their new home. It's now an Embassy Suites hotel whose crenelated parapet testifies to its military past.

2.1 What does the future have in store for The Citadel?

Over the past two centuries, The Citadel has transformed from an antebellum garrison charged with protecting the city from slave rebellions into a nationally ranked public college that caters to an increasingly diverse group of students, including minorities, women, veterans, active-duty members of the military and working professionals. Key to The Citadel's future longevity, college officials say, is its willingness to evolve and adapt to the new needs of society. “We’re listening to what the current needs of the world are and trying to be responsive and adaptable and changing," said Col. Mark A. Bebensee, The Citadel's associate provost for academic affairs. “We’re not encased in pre-Civil War concrete. We are moving ahead smartly to meet the demands of the 21st century.”

4. Tall ship ‘The Spirit of South Carolina’ to make port in Wilmington this spring

It isn’t every day that Wilmington gets an up-close look at a 19th Century sailing schooner. But this Spring, the 140-foot Spirit of South Carolina will moor at the Port City Marina in Wilmington for two nights. While visitors won’t be able to tour the schooner, they will be able to view the ship from the pier at Port City Marina, according to marina staff. “The American schooner type achieved world-wide fame when, in 1851, the American schooner America defeated a fleet of British yachts in a race circumnavigating the Isle of Wight to win what came to be known as America’s Cup,” the website states. “Spirit of South Carolina’s design closely resembles that of the 19th century Charleston Harbor pilot schooner Frances Elizabeth which in turn was based on the famous schooner America.” The Spirit of South Carolina’s home port is Downtown Charleston, S.C. It will be in Wilmington as part of The Citadel at Sea Program, an experience offered through The Citadel as part of a study abroad program. According to the program’s itinerary, The Spirit of South Carolina will leave from Charleston, then make port in Wilmington before heading to Norfolk Va., and Washington D.C. The Spirit of South Carolina will be at the Port City Marina on May 25-27.

4.1 "M" is for Military Education

“M” is for Military Education. Since the antebellum period, southerners have regarded military education as an excellent way to instill self-discipline, integrity, patriotism, moral virtue, and a sense of civic duty in youths, particularly young men. The South Carolina Military Academy was founded in 1842 with two branches: Arsenal Academy in Columbia that evolved into a prep school and the Citadel in Charleston as a college. When Clemson Agricultural College opened in 1893, it instituted a military program. The land-grant institution now known as South Carolina State University established a strong military program for black youth in 1896. Although Clemson and South Carolina State moved away from the military in the twentieth century, both institutions have maintained strong ROTC programs. In the twenty-first century military education remains an established feature in the South Carolina landscape.

Baseball Plays Host to The Citadel Easter Weekend
VMI baseball will return to action Friday, when the Keydets play host to The Citadel at 6 p.m. to open the first home SoCon series of the season. Games Saturday (2 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m.) follow. At press time, this will be just the second Keydet weekend series since opening weekend that will not include a doubleheader. VMI did not play a doubleheader against South Carolina or George Washington, but has done so every other weekend so far this season. On Sunday, Kyle Staats will bid for his third win of the year. Staats could become the first lefty other than Brandon Barbery - who has done it twice - to win three or more games in a season since 2011. The Keydets rank third in the country in triples with 12, and actually lead Division I in the statistic on a per-game basis. Infielder Nate Eaton ranks fifth in Division I, and leads the SoCon, with 16 stolen bases. Matt Pita, meanwhile, is second in the SoCon and 20th in D1 in total bases with 67.

2. Tales of Valor - Military service shapes the man and his beliefs

Having grown up with a father who was a rear admiral and quite the disciplinarian, you would think it only natural for a young Citadel graduate to head straight for the military. But there was some hesitation for Mount Pleasant resident Dick Whitfield.

He lived the typical military brat lifestyle, traveling from base to base. Their last stop before returning to Charleston was San Juan where his father was the base commander. They stayed there one year until he and his wife Ellie packed up their family and headed back home. Whitfield attended Porter Military Academy and Moultrie High School and is a 1969 graduate of The Citadel

The march to the original campus location in downtown Charleston marked the end of the highly regimented way of life that is The Citadel's Fourth-Class System.

3. Military history shaped The Citadel, and vice versa: 'When country calls, The Citadel answers'

Not all Citadel alumni have served in the military, but the school's history remains very much intertwined with the nation's.

For instance, as the country faced a critical need for junior officers and second lieutenants during the Second World War, the federal government called the Citadel's entire Class of 1944 into service in the summer before their junior year.

Then-Citadel President Gen. Charles P. Summerall objected, arguing that the cadets would become better soldiers if allowed to finish their education — but to no avail.

With the exception of three cadets who were unable to serve, the entire class marched off campus to board a train to Fort Jackson in Columbia, and from there to basic training and theaters of war across the globe. They became legendary as the Class That Never Was.

4. How The Citadel became a political bastion in its own right

Before Hurricane Hugo tore into Charleston in September 1989, Mayor Joe Riley envisioned a battlefield. He stood on flat Lowcountry ground, but in his mind's eye, he saw a hill. The enemy, he said, was always just over the crest. Now, the storm was nearing Charleston. The enemy approached.

"If we ease up, we are going to lose," Riley told his staff, relaying the mental picture to them. "We're going to deal with it, and we are not going to quit. We will not relent."

Winds during Hugo would gust at more than 150 mph. The metal of the Ben Sawyer Bridge would twist into the water below.

It was the most devastating storm in South Carolina's history, one that did more than $6 billion worth of damage to the city. Riley, a Citadel graduate, would lead Charleston through it all.

5. Got a basketball jones? Former Citadel player Zach Urbanus has an app for that

Citadel basketball fans will remember Zach Urbanus as a buzz-cut kid with a buzz-saw 3-point shot, a key player on the Ed Conroy-coached teams that won 20 games in 2008-09 and took three of four from rival College of Charleston. Urbanus, from Austin, Texas, still holds The Citadel's record for 3-pointers made in a career (295).

Now a coach and basketball trainer, Urbanus is seeking to make an even deeper impact on the game. He's one of the founders of a new basketball app, Ballogy, that says it is "revolutionizing the way youth and amateur athletes prepare for their sports."

Professor D.G. Dwight, manager of the baseball team at Porter Military Academy, announced in the March 31, 1895, edition of The News and Courier that his team would play a series of games against the South Carolina Military Academy, commonly known as The Citadel.

The "series will commence as soon after Easter as the numerous picnic goings will permit," the story reported. "This is said on the suggestion that the Citadel cadets will play."

Some 123 years later, picnics and Citadel athletics still go together — just check out the tailgating scene around Johnson Hagood Stadium on fall football Saturdays.

5. Mises the Man and His Monetary Policy Ideas Based on His "Lost Papers"

One day in 1927 Austrian economist, Ludwig von Mises, stood at the window of his office at the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, and looked out over the Ringstrasse (the main grand boulevard that encircles the center of Vienna). He said to his young friend and former student, Fritz Machlup, “Maybe grass will grow there, because our civilization will end.” He also wondered what would become of many of the Austrian School economists in Austria. He suggested to Machlup that, clearly, they would have to immigrate, perhaps, to Argentina, where they might find work in a Buenos Aires nightclub. Friedrich A. Hayek could be employed as the headwaiter, Mises said, while Machlup, no doubt, would be the nightclub’s resident gigolo. But what about Mises? He would have to look for work as the doorman, for what else, Mises asked, would he be qualified to do?

The first Citadel alumnus to die in an American war was Judah Alexander from the Class of 1846, only three years after the inaugural class of cadets reported.

Alexander died on June 19, 1847 while serving in Perote during the Mexican-American War. His cause of death is listed in The Citadel archives as "battlefield disease."

The last alumnus to die was Army Sgt. Aaron X. Wittman, a 2007 graduate. He was killed by small arms fire on Jan. 10, 2013, while on mounted patrol in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan.

2. The Citadel's early story

The Citadel was founded 175 years ago and its earliest history was intimately intertwined with South Carolina's, for better and worse.

In 1822 — two decades before this school emerged — Charleston was roiled by Denmark Vesey's planned slave revolt which urged slaves and free men of color to murder the city's white population.

Had it succeeded, it could easily have been the nation's bloodiest such uprising by far.

In response, the state sought ways to deter any future revolts and planted the seeds of The Citadel, whose name appeared on the Charleston scene long before the school did.

1. Nikki Haley secretary of state snub may be vote of confidence for accomplishments at UN

Ever since now-former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson began falling out of favor with President Donald Trump last year, foreign policy observers have pointed to United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley as a contender for a promotion.

With Trump's pick of CIA director Mike Pompeo to replace Tillerson last week, Haley appears set to remain at her current post in New York for the foreseeable future.

But while Trump's decision could be viewed as a Haley snub, experts say continuity may be in the former South Carolina governor's best interest, giving her the time to continue honing her newfound foreign policy chops.

"She's in a good situation where she is, so why change now," said Scott Buchanan, a political science professor at The Citadel. "Haley has gotten rave reviews from Republicans for her job performance as U.N. ambassador. So you could make the argument this isn't so much a snub as it is a vote of confidence in how she's doing at her current job."

4. A local hero’s story of service and sacrifice

On March 2, 1968, a small patrol of 15 Marines from the 1st Reconnaissance (Recon) Battalion’s Alpha Company boarded a CH-46 helicopter for a brief trip that would take them well behind enemy lines to an observation outpost simply known as “Hill 146.” Their orders called for them to monitor and disrupt enemy activity by directing fire from artillery and airborne units (known as “Fire Missions”).

During one of the attacks on March 5, a grenade found its way into the fighting hole manned by three Marines. The 19-year old Marine who saw the grenade first yelled for his friends to “get back” while throwing himself on the explosive device. The impact of the blast killed this Marine instantly, but his unselfish actions not only saved the life of one of the Marines in his hole, but the lives of his entire unit by allowing the patrol’s defensive perimeter to remain intact. Our nation recognized this heroic act by bestowing upon him its highest award for valor in combat, the Medal of Honor. This young Marine was Private First Class Ralph Henry Johnson.

4. Why not Private Provision of Many Government Services

One of the great controversies in modern society concerns the necessary and required functions of government. There are few who disagree that if government is to exist then it certainly has the duty and responsibility to secure and protect essential rights of every individual, including the right to life, liberty and honestly acquired property. But there are a wide variety of tasks that the private sector could better provide that many think must be supplied by the government.

6. The Looming National Security Crisis: Young Americans Unable to Serve in the Military

The military depends on a constant flow of volunteers every year. According to 2017 Pentagon data, 71 percent of young Americans between 17 and 24 are ineligible to serve in the United States military. Put another way: Over 24 million of the 34 million people of that age group cannot join the armed forces—even if they wanted to. This is an alarming situation that threatens the country’s fundamental national security. If only 29 percent of the nation’s young adults are qualified to serve, and if this trend continues, it is inevitable that the U.S. military will suffer from a lack of manpower. A manpower shortage in the United States Armed Forces directly compromises national security.

All biology majors know that two interconnected biopolymer strands coil around each other to form a double helix that makes up each deoxyribonucleic acid molecule. Embedded in that DNA molecule is the individual genetic code that makes us all unique individuals. Like the double helix, all cadets are defined by unique experiences that identify who they are. It’s the little things—company rosters, academic majors, faculty schedules, roommate assignments, leadership selection—all seemingly random personal encounters that make up each cadet’s individual experience. The experiences I have had profoundly impacted my development. The people, the opportunities and the adversity all changed me in ways greater than I could have imagined.

Connie Book, Elon University’s first female president, started her new job Thursday but she is no stranger to the private campus near Burlington.

Baucom's analysis begs the question: Which Citadel team will make the trip to Asheville this weekend for the Southern Conference Tournament?

2. Shannon Faulkner: Short stay at The Citadel had lasting impact on it

She never wore the ring. She changed things forever, though. Shannon Faulkner made history in 1995 as the first female cadet at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, following a court battle amid heated public debate. She lasted only about a week, but cracked open the door for other women, including South Carolina State Rep. Nancy Mace, a former Atlanta resident and the first woman to graduate from The Citadel.

On Saturday, Faulkner returns to the school she fought so hard to enroll in but quickly left, citing stress and fatigue. She’s among the speakers at the “Pat Conroy at The Citadel Symposium,” happening from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the college’s Holliday Alumni Center.

3. Charleston Republicans honor Black History Month

Not everyone who attended the Charleston County GOP's inaugural Black History Month Banquet on Wednesday knew all the words to "Lift Every Voice and Sing," the cherished civil rights black anthem.

As the brass section of the Burke High School band grew louder, the sold-out and mostly white crowd at The Citadel's Holliday Alumni Center fumbled through the tune, uncertain of the words beyond the first few lines.

The event's keynote speaker Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., was determined for a more triumphant rendition. When she took to the podium, King emphasized that people are more alike than they are different, even when it comes to race.

The event hosted by the Charleston County Republican Party and The Citadel Republican Society sought to honor six Charleston-area African Americans for their contributions. About 300 people attended.

4.Unhealthy state of affairs: Three-quarters of young Americans unfit for military service, study says

The US could be facing a security crisis and it has nothing to do with the Russians this time. According to a new study, the majority of military-age Americans don’t meet the criteria for service – mostly due to health problems.

Particularly alarming for the US military is that the southern states that traditionally supply the armed forces with the largest percentage of new recruits are facing even more concerning health problems among their young population. 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,” according to a recent study conducted by the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, together with the US Army Public Health Center and the American Heart Association

9a. Southern Conference Tournament preview: UNC Greensboro and ETSU are the teams to beat

#8 The Citadel: Zane Najdawi and The Citadel Bulldogs certainly have learned some valuable lessons this season, and the results are starting to show. Najdawi has posted 20 or more points in nine games this season, including a career-high 37 points in a win over Chattanooga. He has been a key cog for the Bulldogs as a scorer in the paint, rim protector on the defensive end, and a shooter from the perimeter. The Citadel has never been to the NCAA Tournament, thus meaning the Bulldogs have never won the Southern Conference Tournament.
