1A lesson in gaining buy-in from policy makers: an author Q&A with Dr. Daniel Bornstein

A group of researchers, led by Dr. Daniel Bornstein, is receiving media attention from news outlets across the country, including USA Today, for an article recently published in the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice. The article, “Which US States Pose the Greatest Threats to Military Readiness and Public Health? Public Health Policy Implications for a Cross-sectional Investigation of Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Body Mass Index, and Injuries Among US Army Recruits” reframes the negative effects of physical inactivity and low fitness from an issue that impacts public health to one that directly and indirectly affects military readiness and national security. Bornstein, an assistant professor in the Department of Health, Exercise, and Sport Science at The Citadel, maintains that the way to affect policy is to speak the language of the policy makers.

6'Gentle giant' trooper and Marine killed in off-duty crash gets hero's funeral

Brian McNally stood six feet, seven inches tall, weighed 235 pounds and wore size 15 combat boots that had to be special ordered. Even among the burly ranks of the New Jersey State Police and U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, his booming voice, "goofy laugh" and outsized personality made the young trooper loom larger still, friends and family said.

McNally, who was killed in an off-duty crash in Pennsylvania last week, had been a Marine for just eight years and a trooper for four. But those who knew him said the 30-year-old, who was laid to rest Wednesday, led a life of service and heroism that belied his youth.

Jaguars undrafted free agent cornerback Dee Delaney arrived for work around 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday to begin his second week of organized team activity workouts at TIAA Field.

Though the OTA schedule is rigorous, Delaney said it’s nothing compared to what he experienced when he played at the Citadel, a military college located in Charleston, SC.

6The myth that central banks assure economic stability

By Richard M. Ebeling, the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel.

The world has been plagued with periodic bouts of the economic rollercoaster of booms and busts, inflations and recessions, especially during the last one hundred years. The main culprits responsible for these destabilizing and disruptive episodes have been governments and their central banks. They have monopolized the control of their respective nation’s monetary and banking systems, and mismanaged them. There is really nowhere else to point other than in their direction.

1'Pride of our campus': At The Citadel, cadets and bulldogs living together

On the rare mornings that Citadel cadet Jennifer Pozzani slept through her alarm, her roommate in Law Barracks was quick to action.

"If you hit snooze and go back to bed, she'll start poking you with your paw," Pozzani says. "And when you get up to get ready, she takes your spot on the pillow. She's definitely a hoot."

For the last few weeks of the spring semester, Pozzani's roommate was Boo, one of the military school's live mascot bulldogs. Boo and Pozzani were living together as part of a new Citadel program that will enable Boo and her fellow mascot, General, to live on the military school's campus with cadets.

2Balance, determination and discipline: survival tactics for a cadet athlete

When I picture a student athlete, I always think about tightrope walking. Tightrope acrobats tread slowly and carefully over a thin rope suspended high in the sky. The delicate movements require balance, determination and discipline. Similarly, college student athletes walk a tightrope between academic and athletic obligations every day. At The Citadel, leadership and ethics training, military rank responsibilities, civic service requirements and physical training intensify the student athlete’s journey, making that tightrope seem longer and longer.

3Tariff walls and trade wars equal government planning

Trade wars are dangerous and harmful policies for governments to pursue. They hurt consumers due to higher prices and fewer alternatives; they reduce competitive opportunities for producers by restricting markets; and they narrow the benefits that come from a market-based system of division of labor in which each participant tends to devote his or her efforts to supplying the goods or services in which they may have the greatest comparative advantage for the best economic gain to themselves and for those with whom they trade.

3South Carolina hopes to keep flag from Iowa collection permanently

Buried deep in Iowa's state historical museum, there is a treasure trove of artifacts.There's also a collection of 210 flags Iowans captured during the Civil War, including a large red flag adorned with the South Carolina Palmetto on it, known as "Big Red." But that flag has been housed in South Carolina since 2010.

"At times we’ve loaned them out to Iowa museums and museums across the United States," said Leo Landis, state curator at the museum in Des Moines.

Now South Carolina wants to keep it indefinitely. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster penned a letter to Governor Kim Reynolds in April asking for the flag to remain in the state permanently, calling the flag "embedded into the tradition and history" of the Citadel cadets.

9aCharleston is on track to ban smoking in parks, latest in efforts to outlaw tobacco in public places

If smokers in Charleston want to light up, they would have to do so outside of the city's parks if an ordinance in front of City Council passes. Supporters say the move is an incremental one following years of similar bans in workplaces, at the Medical University of South Carolina, the College of Charleston and The Citadel.

9b.A Citadel coach didn't want his seniors to miss graduation. So he rented a van and drove 5 hours each way.

The Citadel's baseball team racked up some impressive statistics for the weekend series at East Tennessee State: Two wins, 20 hours on the road for coach Tony Skole, and seven seniors graduated with the class of 2018. Saturday's graduation ceremonies at The Citadel complicated the schedule for the weekend series, but with a rental van and some late-night stamina, Skole made it work.

1The Citadel Fought the Admission of Women. Now a Female Cadet Will Lead the Corps.

When Sarah Zorn applied for admission to the Citadel four years ago, she had not heard the story of Shannon Faulkner, the first woman to gain full admission to the famed Southern military college.

Ms. Zorn did not know about the two-and-a-half-year legal battle that had forced the college to accept her, or the death threats, or the sexist epithets spray-painted on her parents’ house, or the federal marshals who escorted Ms. Faulkner to campus on her first day as a cadet in 1995, or that she had dropped out a week later.

She knows now. But the 21-year-old college junior believes that the 175-year-old South Carolina institution that once fought admitting women as if they were an invading army has made its peace with the idea.

6The Citadel, warts and all, shines in new book by Beaufort graduate

John Warley of Beaufort thought he knew The Citadel very well. He's not an outsider, casting stones like it seems everyone else does over the walls of South Carolina's 175-year-old military college in Charleston. He wears the ring from the class of 1967. And as a writer, former practicing attorney, and classmate and close personal friend of the late Pat Conroy, Warley has for 50 years now witnessed all the warts that have dominated the public's view of a place he never thought he'd consider beloved, but does.

All those warts and more are in Warley's new book: "Stand Forever, Yielding Never: The Citadel in the 21st Century," from Evening Post Books in Charleston. But the narrative of the book is much larger. It brings understanding to a school that often feels misunderstood and under-appreciated.

2Could South Carolina teachers join wave of walkouts that started in West Virginia?

Teachers are revolting across the country following years of stagnant wages, rising insurance costs, increasing demands on their profession and cuts to public education. Could South Carolina, where teachers are grappling with all of these same issues, be the next battleground?

"It’s the kind of thing where I’d say it’s unlikely, but I would have said it’s unlikely if I was living in West Virginia or Oklahoma six weeks ago," said Kerry Taylor, a labor historian at The Citadel.

2Hueys and a Local Warrior

While I was in my technical school for aircraft mechanics and because of my test scores, I was offered a chance to become a Warrant Officer and go to helicopter school. I didn’t take the opportunity and often wonder how different life would have been if I had. I have recently met a local veteran who learned to fly the Huey and has a real story to share.

Charles Lewis Moore, Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired (Charles Lewis), has lived in Cocke County all his life. He attended Cosby High School and went on to the Military College of South Carolina, commonly referred to simply as The Citadel.
