2. 15 Richmond County students sign up to join military, go to military schools
Fifteen Richmond Senior High School students were recognized during a military signing ceremony on Wednesday. Six will join the Marine Corps, four are going into the Army, one is enlisting in the Air Force, three are attending The Citadel and one is going to Norwich University. Grantham J. Freeman, Kyle T. Goodwin and Billy C. Wilson are all headed south to The Citadel.

5. Nixing Dixie: College of Charleston renames its plantation ‘Stono Preserve’
It’s unclear where the name Dixie Plantation came from, but it’s clear where it’s going: to history’s dustbin. The College of Charleston has rebranded its 800-plus-acre former plantation in southern Charleston County, a change that its outgoing president said “reaffirms who we are as a university and our commitment to diversity, inclusion and community.” The college’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously last month to support interim President Steve Osborne’s recommendation to rename Dixie Plantation as the College of Charleston at Stono Preserve. Osborne said Wednesday — his last day as interim president before incoming President Andrew Hsu takes over — the college had discussed the name for about a year and he was a big supporter of the change. Reaction so far, he said, has been positive. The rebranding also comes at a time when some local developers are dropping the word “plantation” from their neighborhoods. While the term “Dixie” has seen less local official use, the song with the same name has stirred its share of unease. In 1992, after a high-profile, racially charged incident at The Citadel, the school stopped its tradition of singing “Dixie” during football games.

1. ‘A patriot’: Father praises Marine killed in training accident in California
As seen on News4, Washington, D.C., by Darcy Spencer A marine killed in a training accident in California who had deep ties to the D.C. area is being remembered as a leader and upstanding patriot. First Lieutenant Hugh Conor McDowell was killed in an accident that wounded six other Marines at Camp Pendleton. He had grown up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and attended St. John’s College High School in Northwest. McDowell graduated from The Citadel Military College in South Carolina and became a Marine Corps officer in May 2017. His father, Michael McDowell, told News4 in a Skype interview that McDowell was a leader, “a patriot in the right way” and had achieved his lifelong dream in becoming a Marine. “He was a leader. He loved leading the young kids. He would never allow them to be hazed or bullied,” Michael McDowell said. McDowell was engaged to his soulmate, with whom he wanted to have six children, his family said. His fiancee, Kathleen Isabel Rose Bourque, remembered McDowell as a “beacon of strength and ferocity and courage and grace.” A training crash involving a vehicle roll-over cut his life short. The McDowells, grieving the loss of their only child, want to ensure no other family feels that pain.

4. It took SC Rep. Nancy Mace 25 years to share she was raped. She never expected this.
When state Rep. Nancy Mace decided to share her personal story of being raped at 16, she thought the speech would make her fellow Republicans think twice about an abortion bill. Weeks later, she felt targeted instead. On Monday, the House Republican Caucus will decide how to respond to the recent actions of Rep. Josiah Magnuson, who last week distributed a postcard and a letter to lawmakers that described rape as a “misdeed of the parent.” When state Rep.

She now credits the school with saving her life. “It’s hard for women who are strong, like I am, in the way that something like this affects us. A lot of times we blame ourselves. It’s something you can’t believe happened, and you ask yourself, ‘How did I let this happen to me?’ It’s very difficult to overcome,” she said.

7. College of Charleston rally stuns Citadel as Bulldogs drop 21st straight; Clemson, USC prevail

Bradley Dixon robbed Cole Simpson of a pinch-hit game-tying home run in the top of the ninth to put the finishing touches on College of Charleston’s 19th comeback win of the season in a 9-8 victory over The Citadel on Tuesday evening at Patriots Point.

3. All Socialisms Are Antisocial
Those who have seen the 1982 Steven Spielberg movie Poltergeist may remember the scene when the little girl touches the snowy screen of her family’s television and says, “They’re here,” meaning the evil ghostly forces bringing death and destruction. Well, they are here: socialism, nationalism, protectionism, and political paternalism. The ghosts of collectivisms past have returned, and their harmful effects will be the same as any experienced in the past. We seem to be in the midst of what may be a dangerous return to the worst political ideas and policies of the 20th century. We must first understand that philosophically they all originate from a common root. The group, the tribe, the nation, the race, the social class are declared to be superior to and all-controlling over the individual members of society. The words “freedom” and “liberation” are widely used by all the proponents of these variations on the collectivist theme, but their use, in fact, has nothing to do with either freedom or liberation. They reflect instances of George Orwell’s “newspeak” in his famous anti-totalitarian novel 1984. The meanings of words are turned on their heads and are used in ways opposite to their original meanings. Hence, political control and manipulation means to have real personal freedom from tyranny; and complete intolerance and censorship of views and actions inconsistent with the “progressive” and democratic socialist views of the world means to have real intellectual and social liberation from oppression. Richard M. Ebeling, an AIER Senior Fellow, is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. Ebeling lived on AIER's campus from 2008 to 2009.

Dexter Coakley reflects on football journey from Wando to Dallas Cowboys
It was never a goal. It was barely a dream. Dexter Coakley realized that when it came down to it, he was an undersized kid from South Carolina who was playing football because football was there to be played. Growing up in Mount Pleasant, there weren’t any professional teams around, so he never spent much time thinking, “What if … ” All these years later, he still can’t believe it turned out like it did. “Dexter Coakley is a guy that I despised for four years when I was a Citadel guy and he was an Appalachian State guy,” Hall official Andy Solomon joked. “He’s a good guy … for an Appalachian State guy.”

Agents have arrested a North Charleston man accused of stealing a College of Charleston student's transcript in order to get into graduate programs and land a job at Boeing. The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division arrested 38-year-old Billy Joe Bell and charged him with identity fraud. He was locked up at the Charleston County Detention Center. According to SLED investigators, in May of 2018, Bell went to the registrar’s office at the College of Charleston and brought several documents including a sworn affidavit in order to change a student’s personal information to that of his own. Court documents state Bell also obtained a student’s College of Charleston’s identification number with the intent to fraudulently obtain the victim’s official College of Charleston academic transcript and undergraduate degree. SLED says Bell used the documents in an attempt to get into graduate programs at the Citadel and West Governor’s University, and get a job at Boeing.

5. Upward Bound prepares WHS student for college
The Upward Bound program through Appalachian State University — an academic preparation program for first-generation and low-income students — is helping many students in the region feel prepared for post-secondary education. One student graduating from the program after starting as a ninth-grader is Noah Pearson. Pearson is a senior at Watauga High School and plans to attend The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, as a student in the school’s civil engineering program. “They’ve helped me get on my right path for the future and they’ve helped several others do the same,” Pearson said. “I think it’s something that’s priceless. There’s no words to describe how thankful I am and what they’ve done for me and are doing for many others.” Pearson said he had originally heard about Upward Bound from his cousins in Tennessee who were in the program and participated through East Tennessee State University. He then became interested in the program when Gersonde came to his school and did a presentation on Upward Bound.
