3. Oxford’s retiring Public Defender, Richard C. Davis, believes everyone deserves a second chance

Richard C. Davis believes everyone deserves a second chance – and sometimes even a third or fourth chance. For 30 years, he has helped provide those chances to countless individuals as the Municipal Public Defender for Oxford.

Davis understands needing a second chance. Growing up in Miami by a single mother, he admits he was a difficult child, heading down a wrong path with no guidance. In an attempt to get her son back on track and provide discipline and order that she alone couldn’t provide, his mother sent Davis to live at the Thornwell Orphanage in South Carolina at 11 years old.

He lived at the orphanage, that also served as a boy’s school until he graduated high school and attended Citadel Military College.

“I saw that environmental health and human health are intertwined,” he says. “The importance of water quality amazed me.”

1.S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster asks Iowa if The Citadel can keep Civil War-era 'Big Red' flag permanently

Gov. Henry McMaster is asking Iowa's governor for help in allowing The Citadel to keep "Big Red" — a treasured flag that flew over Morris Island when cadets took part in an opening skirmish of the Civil War.

The banner, featuring a white palmetto tree and crescent emblem against a red background, was thought lost to history until it was discovered in the possession of a Union soldier from Iowa a century ago.

In 2010 it was put on display by mutual agreement at the Charleston military college under a loan offering that's set to expire in 2021.

4.SSC Atlantic Cybersecurity Competition Challenges South Carolina Students

The goal of PCDC is to energize South Carolina high school and collegiate students to focus on the development of networking and cybersecurity skills through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). During the competitions, students from each school formed “blue teams” that operated and secured the network of a small shipping company. The teams were challenged to properly configure/reconfigure an IT network, add new services, and respond to additional requirements -- all while defending against “red team” hackers attempting to disrupt their network.

Clemson University took first place, College of Charleston second and University of South Carolina third. ECPI University, The Citadel, Trident Technical College, South Carolina State and Charleston Southern University also competed in the event.

Litchfield worked a 2-2 count before driving a ball deep over the right field fence to end the game on his first homer of the season. This was the first time the Bucs have beaten The Citadel and College of Charleston in the same season since 2007.

4. 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. Reasons for Anti-Capitalism: Ignorance, Arrogance, and Envy

Given the success of the competitive market economy to “deliver the goods,” it presents something of a paradox. An economic system that has either radically reduced or even in some instances virtually eliminated poverty, that has created widely available opportunities for personal, social and material improvement, and has abolished traditional systems of political privilege, plunder and power-lusting, is still considered by many to be an evil and unjust social system.
