1. First-of-its-kind scholarship at The Citadel pays off for both founder and recipient
Women cadets make up about a tenth of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Many are working to grow that percentage. Holly Irvine, Ph.D., Citadel Class of 2009, is one of them. Ten years ago, just after graduating from The Citadel, Irvine founded the Mace-Lovetinska Fund for Women, which is The Citadel’s first scholarship named after women, founded by women, and provided to women. Fast forward to 2019, when Irvine visited Charleston, just days before the start of Women’s History Month. During her visit, she got to see the results of her hard work, personified by a freshman cadet walking on campus in an Army combat uniform. That was when she met Taryn Hall, the first cadet to ever receive the historic scholarship.

2. Traces of plastic found in Columbia’s drinking water and rivers; researchers not surprised
Tiny plastic particles have been discovered in Columbia’s drinking water and some area rivers in what researchers say is the first study of microplastic pollution in a S.C. public water system. The findings are not a surprise to lead researcher John Weinstein, a Citadel professor who said microscopic plastic particles are being found across the world in rivers and drinking water. But Weinstein’s S.C. research provides evidence of how prevalent plastic pollution has become since plastics first were introduced in the mid-20th century. The key question now is whether the tiny particles could harm people. Thus far, research has been limited on the health effects of microplastics, Weinstein told The State.

3. Handy shopping sacks or public nuisance? Plastic bags cause bitter political fight
South Carolina’s fight over the use of plastic bags spilled into a Legislative hearing Wednesday, foreshadowing what is expected to be a protracted debate this year over litter, water pollution and the impact on businesses if the sacks are banned. Local government officials and small business representatives clashed during a hearing over a legislative proposal to prevent counties and cities from banning plastic bags. Environmentalists also are concerned that when plastic bags break down, they leave tiny particles — called microplastics — that can get into rivers and drinking water. A new report by researchers at The Citadel found microplastics in Columbia-area rivers, as well as traces in the city’s drinking water.

4. Senior military colleges aim to fill gaps in cyber skills for the Defense Department

Originally published in Stars and Stripes

The 2019 National Defense Authorization Act outlines the Pentagon’s intentions to carry out a cyber education program at any university’s ROTC program “for purposes of accelerating and focusing the development of foundational expertise in critical cyber operational skills.” The law goes on to prioritize programs at the nation’s six senior military colleges because of their large foothold in commissioning officers. Together, these schools commission about 900 military officers each year – about 12 percent of annual ROTC commissions. The University of North Georgia, Texas A&M University, The Citadel, Virginia Tech, Virginia Military Institute and Norwich University make up the nation’s six senior military colleges, as designated by meeting specific requirements of the Title 10 U.S. Code in their ROTC programs. The leadership foundation of an ROTC program is what sets their programs apart from other universities, said Carl Jensen, interim leader of the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies at The Citadel. Agencies such as the FBI and CIA “like our graduates not just because of their academic skills, but also because of the focus on ethical leadership, loyalty and modesty. All the sort of things The Citadel tries to instill in graduates is exactly the sort of person who the public and private intelligence companies and defense contractors want to hire,” he said. In 2016, 13 graduating seniors from The Citadel’s program were hired by the FBI straight out of college, Jensen said. In fall 2018, 104 freshmen at The Citadel declared intelligence and homeland security as their major. The Department of Intelligence and Security Studies, which houses the major, was launched in the fall.

6. Sterling K. Brown with Stand-In Miriam Grant: "It's Family" | Behind the Scenes

When Sterling K. Brown landed his first series-regular role on Lifetime's Army Wives, he was surprised to learn that his stand-in wasn't a guy but a woman named Miriam Crawford Grant. "I was like, I didn't know we did women stand-ins for men!" says Brown, 42. "But I thought, 'Cool. She's tall, she's black. Let's do it.'" Turns out, being the same gender isn't all that essential to the job. Sure, Grant sometimes has to wear high heels or step on an apple box — but no matter, because to the 35-year-old actress, the job was so much more than helping make sure the lighting was just right for Brown. "I thought I was getting paid to go to acting school," says Grant. Grant is a Class of '06 alumna.

7. Civil War Meeting and Talk entitled Beyond the First Shots: Fort Sumter's Role in the Defense of Charleston Harbor, 1861-1865

February 28, 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm at Homewood Suites, 1650 Pullman Lane, Hagerstown, 1650 Pullman Ln, Hagerstown, MD 21740, USA

The Hagerstown Civil War Round Table will be featuring a talk on Fort Sumter by Olivia Black. Fort Sumter is most widely recognized as the place where the Civil War began, however, the fort continued to be an important and contested symbol of resistance for four years after the first shots. Union forces attacked Fort Sumter with the largest ironclad fleet assembled in history to that point and bombarded it for 18 months with heavy artillery, but Confederate forces continued to man the fort's ruins until February of 1865. Olivia Black is a park ranger and the volunteer program coordinator at Antietam National Battlefield where she has worked since August 2016. Previously, she worked as a park guide at Fort Sumter National Monument from 2010 to 2016. She has a Bachelor's Degree in history from St. Mary's College of Maryland and a Master's Degree in history from The Citadel in Charleston, SC.

AREA ROUNDUP: Brunswick tennis picks up win, loss early in week
The Mariners failed to make waves at the Oyster Shuck Match Play event held Monday and Tuesday at the Patriots Point Golf Club in Mount Pleasant, S.C. Coastal Georgia lost to The Citadel 4.5-0.5 in its final match, but it was just a continuation of a tough first day that saw CCGA drop matches against Division I programs James Madison University and Wofford. Though the Mariners ultimately finished eighth in the eight-team field, Kylee Wheeler turned out a strong individual performance. Matches in progress were suspended when the winning team scored the necessary third point to win the match made up of five players competing head-to-head in match-play format. Wheeler led her match against James Madison by one with two holes to go before it was stopped. She was also two up with three holes to play against Wofford before the match was suspended. The sophomore from Waycross tied her opponent from The Citadel in the final match to earn the Mariners’ lone half point of the event.

1. Is there plastic in Columbia’s drinking water? One study says yes

For months, WIS has been investigating the effects of plastic waste on our Midlands waterways. On Monday, we told you about a floating pile of trash that routinely collects at the start of the Columbia Canal, a source of our drinking water. The concern is that over time plastic breaks down, and then turns into potentially harmful microplastics or microscopic pieces of plastic. Sarah Kell, a marine biology graduate student at the College of Charleston, helped us collect our samples. Part of her graduate research focuses on microplastics and how they affect us and the environment. Kell’s graduate program partners with the microplastics lab at the Citadel Military College, which is where she met Dr. John Weinstein, the chairman of the biology department. “What we found in our research is that these items break down a whole lot faster than people probably think,” Weinstein said. Once in Weinstein’s lab, Kell got to work, showing us how she combs through the water sample. “I will place them into a dish in order to analyze the sample to look for microplastics,” Kell said.

3. Former Prosecutor Pleads Guilty to Taking Public Money

Dan Johnson spent two decades in South Carolina and Iraq prosecuting felons. On Tuesday, the former prosecutor became a felon himself. Johnson pleaded guilty in federal court to wire fraud in a scheme that authorities say stole about $44,000 in public money to spend on hotel rooms and plane flights for vacations and romantic liaisons. The former 5th Circuit Solicitor in South Carolina faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced later this year, but assistant U.S. Attorney Winston Holliday expects he will ask for a sentence of a year to 18 months behind bars. Johnson graduated from The Citadel and received South Carolina's highest civilian honor, the Order of the Palmetto, when he was 22 for working with a center helping domestic abuse victims.

5. This Civil War battalion was just college kids
During the Civil War, an entire battalion was formed by pulling the students of two colleges out of school, putting them under the command of their professors, and shipping them off to war. And these college kids really did fight, possibly firing some of the first and last shots of the war and earning battle streamers for seven different engagements before the war ended. The college students were cadets at The Citadel and The Arsenal Academy, both establishments for training future military officers. So, when South Carolina seceded on Dec. 20, 1860, there was obviously a question of roles for these men who had already signaled an interest in military service. Just a few weeks later, on Jan. 9, cadets were manning artillery emplacements in Charleston Harbor when a merchant ship, Star of the West, loaded with supplies and reinforcements for Fort Sumter, entered the harbor. The Citadel's superintendent, Col. Peter Stevens, ordered gunners to fire on the ship in an attempt to turn it around.

2. The ubiquitous SC coastal marsh grass is no longer called spartina
The spartina grass that makes for miles and miles of beauty along the South Carolina coast? It’s gone. The sleek cordgrass is now called sporobolus, a re-designation that flusters even the scientists who helped bring it about. Recent DNA studies confirmed the reeds never really were part of the spartina species they had previously been placed. The name change won’t grow very easily on the millions of coastal residents for whom “spartina” has become synonymous with Southeastern coastal life. Professor Danny Gustafson, The Citadel molecular ecologist who contributed to the DNA study, laughed when asked about the fuss. “It’s kind of frustrating when you know the name of a species, you don’t know that name of the species, and you have learn it again,” he said. Spartina is the single most dominant plant in the intertidal zone from Mexico to the Northeast, Gustafson said. “Nearly every cool ocean animal you think of,” he said, either spends time or feeds on something that spent time in the grasses. “While it (the re-designation) is challenging, it’s part of science,” he said. “It’s an opportunity to learn something new and that’s a good day for me.”

3. Are residents in the Midlands drinking plastic in our water? An investigation shows the answer

As plastic waste begins to pile up in our oceans, rivers and some of the most pristine corners of the world, a question needs to be answered: Are we, in the Midlands, drinking plastic? The main part of this’ months-long investigation focuses on a floating island of plastic, trash, and natural debris right outside the headgates at the entrance of the Columbia Canal. This trash is sitting on top of the city’s drinking water. On a cool December day, Congaree Riverkeeper Bill Stangler spots a floating island of trash that is cleaned by city crews but always returns.

Cal Poly head football coach Tim Walsh has filled a vacancy on his coaching staff with the hiring of UC Davis assistant coach Wes Nurse. Nurse replaces Allen Brown, cornerbacks coach at Cal Poly from 2015-18.

The Citadel’s Merritt Named SoCon Pitcher of the Week
The Citadel right hander Jordan Merritt was selected as the Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week after his performance against No. 17 Michigan. The award was announced by the league office Monday afternoon. Merritt becomes the second Bulldog in as many weeks to receive the honor. Last week, lefty Shane Connolly was honored after a complete-game shutout against Delaware State. Merritt had his second strong start this season as he held the Wolverines to just one run on six hits over 7.0 innings. He struck out seven and walked only one. The game started with two Wolverines getting on base before Merritt settled in with a popup and a 4-6-3 double play to end the inning. He would face the minimum through the middle innings as the only base runner reached on a hit by pitch, but was quickly picked off by Merritt. His day would come to an end the same way it started. Facing a two-on, one-out situation, Merritt got his seventh strikeout followed up by a foul out to third to end the threat. Through two starts, Merritt owns a 0.66 ERA. He has allowed just one earned run over 13.2 innings. He has fanned 16 while walking just one.

2. In effort to curb hazing, new Citadel president changes ‘fourth-class’ discipline system
Change doesn’t always come easily at The Citadel, but a newly installed president has announced a policy he hopes will curb hazing and improve leadership training at the public military college. Retired Gen. Glenn Walters announced this month that starting in the 2020-21 school year The Citadel will assign all rising sophomores to a different company than the one they were in freshman year. “This ‘cross-pollination’ between companies keeps cadets focused on the traditions of the college and prevents dysfunctional norms from taking root at company level,” Walters wrote in a Feb. 7 letter to cadets and alumni. “Cadets will benefit from the fresh start serving a different company’s chain of command.” Under The Citadel’s longstanding system of discipline, most cadets have spent all four years living in barracks and training with a close-knit group of about 100 classmates known as a cadet company. The sophomore shuffle will help the college balance the number of cadets in each company, as freshman attrition rates tend to vary from one company to the other. According to Walters’ letter, evening out the company sizes will give every student an equal opportunity to advance in the ranks of the Corps of Cadets.

3. Forgotten SC Tragedy Memorialized

As seen in The Charleston Chronicle, by Citadel Professor Damon Fordham, MA The citizens of Batesburg, SC attempted to right a 73 year old wrong on February 9 in their town with an apology commemorating a tragic event. It was there on February 12, 1946 that the town earned an infamous place in history that is largely forgotten today- the beating and blinding of Isaac Woodward. Isaac Woodward was a black soldier who was returning from World War II oon a bus from Augusta, Georgia to see his wife in Winnsboro, SC. Along the way, he asked the bus driver, Alton Blackwell, to use the bathroom. Blackwell’s initial refusal led to a profane argument between the two men. When the bus stopped in Batesburg, SC, Blackwell left the bus and called the police, who came to the bus to arrest Woordard for alleged drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

5. Kingsbury Elementary STEAM Club storms The Citadel
What do gravity, traction and trajectory have in common? They are the winning formula for creating the perfect trebuchet to compete in the annual Storm The Citadel Competition. The Kingsbury Elementary STEAM Club, under the direction of fifth-grade teacher Michelle Snyder and fourth-grade teacher Kristin Kohles, had the right formula and placed second and third out of 75 teams at this prestigious event. STEAM Club advisers have spent months helping the students build and perfect their trebuchets for accuracy. All that practice paid off when the team advanced for the final heat of the competition. Kohles said the children were challenged. "When they arrived, they found out they had to shoot six feet. They had to calculate how much weight they would have to use, and there was a lot of math involved. I was impressed that they were able to adapt and calculate so quickly." Congratulations to the STEAM Club, and thank you to all the parents who accompanied and supported the team!

8a. Citadel basketball’s ‘inseparable twins’ are record-setting seniors
Former Citadel basketball coach Chuck Driesell gets credit for recruiting all-Southern Conference pick Zane Najdawi to the military school. But perhaps Amy Frierson deserves some recruiting love, too. Zane and Matt Frierson, Amy’s son, made their official recruiting visits to The Citadel on the same day some five years ago. “I always say, Matt’s mom basically offered me a scholarship,” Najdawi says. “She told me, ‘You should come here, you should come here with Matt.’” Thus began a friendship that’s only grown stronger through four years at The Citadel, forged by knob year, the daily struggles of life in the Corps of Cadets, and the highs and (all too frequent) lows of being a Bulldogs basketball player.

9. Citadel seniors come up big in Senior Day win over Samford

Citadel seniors came up through in the clutch on Senior Day, lifting the Bulldogs to an 84-80 overtime win over Samford at McAlister Field House on Saturday. Zane Najdawi took a bounce pass from fellow senior Matt Frierson and hit a tying 3-pointer with 22 seconds left in regulation, then blocked a Samford shot at the buzzer to force overtime. Graduate-student transfer Lew Stallworth put the Bulldogs ahead to stay in OT with a 3-pointer with 1:44 left, and that trio combined to make five free throws to ice the game, snapping a three-game skid for The Citadel.

9a. Clemson, South Carolina complete sweeps; Cougars take series

No. 20 Michigan 6, The Citadel 3 The Citadel jumped out to an early 2-0 lead but was unable to capitalize as Michigan got a two-run homer from Miles Lewis and completed the series sweep at Riley Park. The Bulldogs (2-4) went up in the second inning on a two-run single by Ryan McCarthy to score Jeffery Brown and Lane Botkin. Brown had an infield single and stolen base followed by a walk by Botkin. After both runners stole bases, McCarthy followed to make it 2-0. Michigan (6-0) tied the game in the third on an RBI double by Jordan Brewer and took the lead the next inning on an RBI double from Joe Donovan and an RBI single by Blake Nelson. The Bulldogs threatened in the fifth inning as Will Bastian singled, Brown walked and Tyler Corbitt walked to load the bases with just one out, but a strikeout and a baserunning mistake ended the threat. The Bulldogs loaded the bases again in the seventh and got one run on an RBI single by Bastian. Dylan Spence (1-1) took the loss after giving up four runs, three earned, on six hits and five strikeouts in four innings. Bastian went 2 for 3, while Brown was 1 for 3 with two walks. Willie Weiss (1-0) picked up the win in relief, while Benjamin Keizer retired all three batters he faced to pick up the save. The Bulldogs host Kent State at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

WRESTLING VMI 23, The Citadel 22 Dom Gallo’s technical fall victory in the next-to-last bout of the match gave the Keydets the needed points to edge the Bullodgs in Southern Conference action Saturday.

The Citadel’s Selwayn Porter won the final bout 16-5 over VMI’s Zach Schmitt, but could not amass enough points to turn the major decision into a technical fall and tie the match.

1. General who commands US operations in space speaks at The Citadel
General John “Jay” Raymond, United States Air Force, delivered the first Greater Issues address of 2019. Every day, the life of almost every person in America is affected by what the nation’s military is doing in space. That’s according to the man in charge of it all, General John “Jay” Raymond. In his February address to the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, Gen. Raymond discussed how essential space operations are to both the American way of life and the American way of war. “There is nothing that we do as a joint force, absolutely nothing, that isn’t enabled by space capability. Whether it’s humanitarian assistance, disaster relief operations or combat operations and everything in between, there’s nothing we do that isn’t enabled by space,” said Gen. Raymond. Another thing space command is responsible for is tracking all everything that’s orbiting the earth. Gen. Raymond says that’s a total of about 24,000 objects. He said, “We act as the space traffic control for the world. So if one object is going to hit another object, we provide warning to make sure that domain stays safe.” Gen. Raymond went on to say, “It’s a congested environment, if you will.”

Former 5th Circuit Solicitor Dan Johnson, facing state and federal charges of public corruption, has resigned his part-time position as a major in the Judge Advocate General’s office of the S.C. Air National Guard. “He is no longer in the military. He has resigned, and he is not currently serving in the S.C. Air National Guard,” a Guard spokesman said Thursday in response to an inquiry by The State. The Air National Guard spokesman did not comment on the circumstances behind Johnson’s resignation, effective Jan. 8. Johnson’s lawyer, John Rakowsky, declined comment on his resignation. However, sources said Johnson — a graduate of South Carolina’s military college, The Citadel — was asked to resign.

2. Cory Booker Visits The Lowcountry
By Citadel Professor Damon L. Fordham, MA The Lowcountry received an important visitor Sunday, February 10 as presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) spoke at the historically black Voorhees College in Denmark, SC. Booker, who recently announced that he is the second African American after Kamala Harris of California to join the presidential contest in 2020, was welcomed by an enthusiastic audience of students and local residents, many of whom brought their children to hear the contender speak. Unlike many other candidates, Sen. Booker refused to concentrate his message against President Donald Trump, explaining, “people want to blame the president, but if more people voted, we could change the Congress. The worst threat to democracy is indifference.” After the town hall segment, the crowd seemed receptive to his message of positivity and unity that is seldom heard by public officials these days. Sen Booker refused to leave the building until all who wanted to greet him did so. His campaign manager for South Carolina is Burke High and Citadel graduate Clay Middleton, who served the same function for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Cadet Rice went on to say, “When we’re in practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays the rest of the world and all my problems don’t matter. I want everyone who joins to have that same experience. We’re a volunteer organization, we have a lot of people doing it, and it’s a diverse group.”

2. Naperville Scouts BSA Troop 1505 For Girls Navigates Future Paths With Trailblazer Speech
It has been less than three weeks since the Boy Scouts of America rebranded its iconic program for 11-17 year olds as Scouts BSA - a program that now serves girls of this age in addition to boys. The Scouts BSA program for girls in single-gender troops is thriving in Naperville. Troop 1505 for girls, chartered by Knox Presbyterian Church, is no exception. Its leaders prepared its members for success by bringing in an adult trailblazer, attorney Ragan Freitag, to discuss her experiences as one of the few females to graduate from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina and as one of the youngest female leaders in Will County government. Ms. Freitag spoke of her largest accomplishment to date. Acting as the youngest Chairman of the Capital Improvements Committee, she used her resourcefulness to build the new Will County Courthouse without raising taxes while incorporating new safety measures, efficiency of use, and modern technology into the building plans. On Monday, February 11th, Ms. Freitag relayed her experiences to the girls in navigating life at a traditionally male military-focused school, being one of the few female students enrolled, as well as how her spunk, drive, and fortitude helped her persevere beyond others' expectations.

4. Opinion: ‘Liberal women’ in Washington overplay identity politics -- By Nancy Mace
I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, and after a few setbacks, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, after following in my father’s footsteps. I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for — and won — a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms. Through these experiences I’ve learned that as women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the whole story. The point of breaking glass ceilings after all is that after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach and it is limitless. We can all achieve the American dream regardless of our gender.

5. Civic leader and philanthropist Betty Chapman, widow of Miami media giant, dies at 98
Alvah Chapman Jr. was asked once what had made him so successful. The late civic leader and a man who helped steer his adopted Miami into an international city, answered: “I owe my success to three things: my Christian faith; my wife, Betty; and the leadership training, education and sense of discipline I received at The Citadel.” Chapman, CEO and chairman of Knight Ridder, the former parent company of the Miami Herald, said that in an interview that originally appeared in The Citadel Magazine in 1999. The Georgia-born media giant and community activist graduated from The Citadel military college in South Carolina in 1942. When he was a freshman, he met Betty Bateman, who was visiting the campus. A year after his graduation, in March 1943, the couple married. His widow, Betty Chapman, died Wednesday morning in hospice care at her Miami home after she suffered a stroke on Feb 10, her daughter Dale Chapman Webb confirmed.

7. Citadel’s leader in points, assists and laughs has ‘been a godsend’
The Citadel basketball team is warming up for practice, and Lew Stallworth is in fine comedic form. “It’s the Fletcher Magee package!” he shouts, whirling in mid-air to launch an improbable 3-point shot in the acrobatic style of Wofford’s star shooter. “Here’s the Rafferty package,” he continues, methodically backing down an imaginary defender, much as Furman’s 6-8 senior Matt Rafferty does so well. Stallworth’s impressions also include NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s one-dribble drive from halfcourt to the rim, and James Harden’s patented four-step shuffle on a step-back 3-pointer. His teammates crack up at each spot-on imitation. A graduate-student transfer who joined The Citadel for his final college season, Stallworth has made an out-sized impact on the Bulldogs, leading the team in points, assists and laughs. “Lew provides a lot of comic relief,” said Citadel senior Zane Najdawi. “He’s a big character, and it’s been great having him around this year.”

The 64 against the Bulldogs ranks between 66 vs. Western Carolina and 60 against Samford. 60 regular season SoCon wins vs. The Citadel is the most in school history ahead of 54 vs. Western Carolina and 48 against Furman.

The Illini swept their season-opening campaign in North Carolina, besting Georgetown, Wake Forest and Sacred Heart 11-3, 5-2 and 4-0, respectively. With the early season grind underway, which will see the Illini on the road for nearly the entire first month of the season, the team will have plenty of storylines to follow before its home opener on March 15. Michigan swept its three-game series against Binghamton University out of Port St. Lucie, Florida, 10-0, 5-4, 12-2, respectively, across the weekend. Next week, the team is set to play three more games at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, marking Michigan’s second nonconference road series of the season. Last weekend, The Citadel went 2-1 to begin its 2019 campaign.

2. 5th annual IOP Polar Plunge - Heartwarming cause at a cold cost
Droves of beachgoers stormed Isle of Palms Front Beach this weekend but not for recreational reasons. On Saturday Feb. 16, the city held its Fifth annual Special Olympics Polar Plunge at The Windjammer for a special group of South Carolina athletes. After all was said and done, participants made more than just waves, they caused a ripple effect that generated approximately $32,000. This year's total funds raised exceeded last year's outcome on paper and in attendance. However, the real dignitaries in attendance weren't the mayors or the law enforcement personnel on hand. The real heroes were the S.C. Special Olympics athletes making strides for their brothers and sisters in their sports community. One in particular who's been a participant ever since the plunge began in 2015 is Tate Mikell. Mikell is a five-time brain surgery survivor. In his college years, during his novice year at The Citadel, he was involved in a car accident where he suffered a concussion. After the incident, he later developed a brain aneurysm which ended up rupturing causing permanent neurological deficiencies. “I enjoy seeing the people, some that I know and some that I don’t, come out and be supportive of the Special Olympics," Mikell said. ”It means just like it says in the Bible, God really does love me very much just like he does all his children.” Mikell has swam for the S.C. Special Olympics for the past eight years. His accomplishments in the water include introducing the 100-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard Butterfly to the state. He says the polar plunge means a great deal to him and his teammates, especially in terms of financing athletic equipment.

3. 'There's no law against it' — Florida vet wants his remains placed in a body bag on his beloved boat after he dies
Jim Tucker, an 85-year-old Army veteran in Florida, doesn't care much about the details of his eventual funeral, except for one: He wants to be buried on his boat, damnit. Tucker has lived on the concrete-hulled boat for decades, and it's where he feels safest after a tough 22-year Army career, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. Tucker, who was inducted into the Army Ranger Hall of Fame in 2016, told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that there's "no law against my spending eternity in the bottom of my boat." His plan is to be placed in a body bag in a sealed concrete vault, which he's already purchased and had delivered. After graduating from The Citadel, Tucker became an Army Ranger and served in Korea, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported. He then worked as an instructor at Mountain Ranger Camp in Dahlonega, Georgia, where he received the Soldier's Medal for rescuing soldiers after a helicopter crash.

4. Here's why the military gives male recruits buzzcuts
In 1994, a judge ruled the first woman ever admitted to The Citadel, a Charleston, South Carolina-based military academy, should not be exempt from getting the same "induction cut" given to all male recruits. For decades, US military recruits have had their locks shorn in the first weeks of training, given what is otherwise known as "The Army's Finest." While the Citadel's first female cadet would not end up buzzed like her male classmates, male recruits and cadets have been going through the rite of passage since George Washington established the Continental Army. The shearing of young men began in earnest during the heavy recruitment of troops in World War II. The Army's official reason was "field sanitation" — meaning it wanted to control the spread of hair and body lice. It had the double effect of standardizing new US troops, creating a singular look to remind the men that they were in the Army now — and that the Army had standards.

5. Paxton & Ryan | Engagement Session
Ryan and Paxton chose Charleston for their engagement photos because the city holds a special place in the heart—if he hadn’t been a Citadel cadet, the two may never have met. Here’s how they came to be: When Ryan was a first-year cadet at The Citadel, he was chosen for the Summerall Guards, an elite (and silent) precision drill group. As such, he was tapped to perform at a festival in Wilmington, North Carolina’s Airlie Gardens, and while Ryan was supposed to march looking straight ahead (the guards’ “performances” are very formal), Paxton fell into his line of sight, and he says couldn’t help but stare at her instead.

7. Wrestlers bring home hardware
Marist senior Jacob Dado opened the state tournament with a heartbreaker as Providence’s Josh Ramos scored the go-ahead points with just 3 seconds left in the match. Dado regrouped, advancing through the consolation bracket to ultimately take fifth place at 138 pounds. He won by injury default when Sandburg’s Pat Nolan forfeited with a knee injury. “It was a bit of a roller coaster in the beginning losing with 3 seconds left,” Dado said. “I had the mindset that I had to come back and get myself as high as I could on the podium. It was tough.” Dado (46-8) finished third in 138 pounds as a junior and fourth at 120 pounds as a sophomore. He will attend The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, but Dado said he’ll never forget his time at Marist. “I’m going to miss wrestling in practice, the tournaments, the coaches, my wrestling partners,” Dado said. “It all means a lot, all those people who helped me.”

8. Glenn Braica, Ron Ganulin try to end St. Francis' NCAA Tournament drought
Glenn Braica, the head coach at St. Francis of Brooklyn, remains grateful for the opportunity and basketball education he once received as an assistant to the school’s former head coach Ron Ganulin. Braica gets to express that every day because Ganulin now is his assistant. What the two of them want more than anything is for their team, the one to which they have devoted a combined 44 years, to finally reach the NCAA Tournament. St. Francis is one of only four schools never to have made it to the Big Dance (along with Army, The Citadel and William & Mary).

1. Pat Caddell went from Jimmy Carter to Donald Trump to a College of Charleston classroom
During his last time talking to a College of Charleston class, pollster Pat Caddell — who helped put Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump in the White House — said he was sorry for the messy state of American politics. “He apologized for what his generation is leaving the current generation,” said political scientist Kendra Stewart, a working partner at the College of Charleston. Caddell, who more recently was known as a face on Fox News, died Saturday in Charleston at age 68 after suffering a stroke. Known for railing against a political system he saw as increasingly favoring elites over the masses, Caddell was the quiet outsider who delved deep into poll data, telling Donald Trump on election night that exit numbers showed he would win the White House. He explained his breakup with the Democratic vision by saying it was no longer “a party of the people,” but had been hijacked by elites, the well-educated, Wall Street and interest groups, his press obituary said. As the story goes, the phrase of actually calling the media “the enemy of the people” originated from Caddell’s lips. He also spoke to cadets at The Citadel, where Mallory Factor invited him in for his class on conservatism.

2. The Nightmare Fairyland of the Green New Dealers
When a small child runs around waving their arms saying, “I’m a bird, I’m a bird,” we often will say what a creative imagination they have. If an adult runs around doing the same, we usually say that that person needs help because they are clearly out of touch with reality. Anyone who takes the time to read the proposed Green New Deal legislation can only conclude that the authors are living in a fairyland that is also deeply out of touch with reality. Read through the list of desired and, indeed, demanded activities the congressional sponsors say they want the federal government to undertake over the next decade. The sponsors resemble a child running around the toy store saying, “I want that, and that, and that, and that, and…” while all the time completely oblivious to the fact that everything they want costs money that their parents do not have an unlimited quantity of. 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.

3. Opinion: Proud of The Citadel

I read with interest the article in The Independent Tribune, Friday, Feb. 15 by Kyle Ingram, “Face of the Citadel.” The article was certainly an informative one about The Citadel and the young man, Logan Miller. Kudos to Logan for his decision to go there and take advantage of the programs offered by the college. I would like to point out two things for correction: first, the name is The Citadel, not the Citadel; and two, it is The Military College of South Carolina, not a military college in South Carolina. I am a member of The Citadel Class of 1973.

1. ’82 alumnus becomes South Carolina’s adjutant general on Feb. 16
Maj. Gen. R. Van McCarty takes command as South Carolina’s adjutant general, the head of the state’s Military Department, on Saturday, Feb. 16 during a ceremony at McEntire Joint National Guard Base. As adjutant general, McCarty will administer the affairs of the South Carolina Army and Air National Guard, the Emergency Management Division, the State Guard, and the Youth Challenge Academy, which consist of about 12,000 people combined. McCarty was named to the position by Governor Henry McMaster in January, replacing Maj. Gen. Robert Livingston who served as as adjutant general for eight years. McCarty had previously been deputy adjutant general. McCarty, who is originally from Saluda, graduated from The Citadel in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science in Education and earned an Army National Guard commission through the college’s ROTC program. McCarty graduated from the FBI National Academy at Quantico, Virginia and served for 24 years in the Law Enforcement Division of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

Kannapolis native Logan Miller’s face is greeting visitors in the Charleston airport in a giant banner for The Citadel, the military college in South Carolina. Miller, a senior cadet at the Citadel, was featured as a part of the school’s “Our Mighty Citadel” campaign. “We wanted to showcase individual cadets who are standouts, like Logan Miller,” Kara Klein, The Citadel’s director of marketing said. “The campaign is designed to help the public get to know our students on a personal and relatable level.” During his time at The Citadel, Miller has taken on leadership roles in the school and studied abroad in several countries. “I’m the regimental public affairs officer so I’m the spokesperson for the school,” Miller said. “If there are any media on campus I’m there to direct the media and direct interviews.” After he graduates, Miller will begin attending PA school at the Medical University of South Carolina. Miller said he thanks God, his mother and his school for his success. “The Citadel is going to challenge you mentally, physically, and emotionally,” Miller said. “You learn how to cope with failure, you learn how to be humble, you learn how to problem solve and think critically and you learn how to have a holistic view about life.”

2a. African-Americans in Charleston find meaning through Islamic faith

When West Africans were forced on slave ships hundreds of years ago, many came from traditional Christian, Muslim and African religious backgrounds. But preserving the Islamic faith proved difficult under enslavement in a predominantly Christian environment, researchers say. Today, most black Americans identify with Christianity, according to Pew Research Center reports. “The first Muslims that came to America were enslaved Africans,” said Dr. Muhammad Fraser-Rahim, who curated The College of Charleston’s digital exhibit, “Enslaved and Freed African Muslims: Spiritual Wayfarers in the South and Lowcountry.” Dr. Muhammad Fraser-Rahim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies at The Citadel.

4. Cadets create indoor 'organic farm' inside shipping containers
Inside three shipping containers on the campus of The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, cadets are learning how to grow lettuce crops in a controlled indoor "farm" setting, producing organic produce in an environment that can withstand unpredictable weather conditions and disease. The cadets' hands-on education comes from The Citadel Sustainability Project, in which the first shipping container functions as a hydroponic cultivation system for lettuce crops, the second container is a testing ground for various growing systems, and the third container will be outfitted by cadets who design and build the growing equipment as part of a corresponding independent study. The Citadel STEM Center of Excellence initiated the project in 2016 as an interdisciplinary collaboration. Of the 20 or so students who are members of the Sustainability Club, several are STEM Scholars. We also have electrical engineers who are completing a design project on hydroponics. We've had students from almost every campus department - engineering, biology, business - who have worked with the project.

7. Presidential ties to Charleston

Though we may be 500+ miles away from the nation’s capital, our city has its fair share of close ties to the White House– starting with the fact that the White House itself was designed by a Charlestonian. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt went as far as to declare CHS to be the “Presidential Port” for its convenient location + hospitable accommodations. And FDR is by no means our only fan: over one-third of our Commanders in Chief hold some kind of tie to the Holy City. Franklin D. Roosevelt (#32) FDR was a frequent visitor of the Holy City, as he was a close friend of former mayor Burnet R. Maybank. In 1935, he visited The Citadel. When he took a cruise to visit South America in 1936, his ship departed from Charleston. During WWII, Roosevelt spent four weeks in Georgetown County at Hobcaw Barony– the longest vacation he took throughout his four terms as president. Dwight D. Eisenhower (#34) Ike was a longtime friend of famed Citadel president Mark Clark. In April 1955, he received an honorary degree from the school. Gerald Ford (#38) President Gerald Ford also received an honorary degree from The Citadel. George W. Bush (#43) Just three months after the September 11 attacks, President George W. Bush spoke at The Citadel to rally support for the War on Terror. He returned in 2006 to speak at the Air Force Base on the same issue.

9a. Patrick Caddell, Pollster to Jimmy Carter, Dies at 68

Patrick Caddell, the pollster who helped propel Jimmy Carter in his longshot bid to win the presidency and later distanced himself from Democrats, has died, a colleague said. He was 68. Caddell died Saturday in Charleston, South Carolina, after suffering a stroke. That's according to Professor Kendra Stewart of the College of Charleston, who confirmed the death to The Associated Press. Stewart said Caddell died early Saturday at the hospital and had not been ill, so it was a surprise to those who knew him. Among his many projects, he was a guest lecturer at the College of Charleston and the Citadel, she said.

This article was originally written by The Associated Press and has been shared by hundreds of news outlets nationwide.

9b. Parents’ worst nightmare
The phone call to their Grand Junction, Colorado home came Feb. 18, 2012. The person on the other end of the line asked Kliffa Hall if her husband, Dennis, was there. When he answered, the caller asked if a colonel had spoken to him. Dennis said no. The caller said she must have gotten the wrong number. With that, all he heard was dial tone. “At that moment, Kliffa knew,” Dennis said. “I did not want to accept what she knew to be the truth.” In the wee hours of the morning, Dennis answered the door to a military officer, NCO and chaplain. Dennis invited them inside. He heard the most difficult words the father of a military son can hear. “On behalf of the Chief of Staff, United States Air Force, I regret to inform you of the untimely death of your son, Captain Ryan Hall. He died on Feb. 18, 2012, as a result of an airplane crash in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa …” said the stoic officer. A Citadel graduate and 8-year Air Force veteran, Ryan died when his special operations aircraft went down returning from an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission in support Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. Holding a black and white picture of his son standing next to a jet training aircraft, dad looked down at his hand where he wears his son’s Citadel [Military School of South Carolina] class ring in line with his own wedding band. “I wear this ring to have a piece of him close,” dad said with watery eyes. “Ever since he was a middle-schooler, he wanted to join the military like me, but he wanted a separate identity from the ‘old man’.”

9e. Western Carolina rips The Citadel despite 37 points by Lew Stallworth

Citadel point guard Lew Stallworth scored a career-best 37 points on Saturday, but it wasn’t nearly enough for the Bulldogs at Western Carolina. The Catamounts torched The Citadel’s 2-3 zone defense by shooting 19 of 30 from 3-point range in a 103-82 win at the Ramsey Center in Cullowhee, N.C. Onno Steger and Matt Halvorsen combined for 12 treys and 49 points as WCU snapped a four-game skid. WCU (7-21, 4-11 Southern Conference) entered the game averaging 70 points per game; in two wins over The Citadel this season, the Catamounts averaged 98.5. “It was probably our lack of defense, and lack of defensive effort, I would think,” Citadel coach Duggar Baucom in explaining the Catamounts’ scoring, which included a 60-point second half on Saturday. The Bulldogs fell to 11-14 overall and 3-11 in the SoCon, their hopes for a winning overall record and sixth seed in the SoCon dwindling quickly. The Citadel must win its final four games, three of them at home, to post a winning regular-season record.

Winners and losers with basketball’s new NET rankings for picking NCAA Tournament field
Over the years, there have been some notorious snubs of mid-major teams. In 2017, Illinois State went 27-5 and had a No. 33 RPI ranking but was left out of the tournament. In 2015, Murray State was 29-6 with a 25-game winning streak and a No. 46 RPI and didn’t make the field. “I really don’t know if the RPI needed to be replaced,” College of Charleston coach Earl Grant said. “What I do know is that there have been several teams when the RPI was in place that probably should have made the NCAA Tournament and didn’t. If the NET can change that, I’m all for it.” So is Citadel coach Duggar Baucom, who was an assistant coach at Davidson in 1995 when the Wildcats went 25-4 and ran through the Southern Conference with a 14-0 record. But the Wildcats were upset in the SoCon tournament championship game and were left out of the NCAA Tournament. “I’ve read where that was one of the biggest NCAA Tournament snubs in history,” Baucom said. “The SoCon has traditionally been a one-bid league, but there can be exceptions.”

3. Citadel cadets will change companies after freshmen year starting in 2020

A shakeup to a Citadel tradition is underway as the Military College of South Carolina shifts away from how it currently handles cadet company assignments. While the new president of the college calls this a refinement of the school’s practices, some former graduates are disappointed in the change. Starting with the 2020-2021 school year, The Citadel will begin assigning rising sophomore cadets to different companies than the ones they were placed with during their freshmen year. The changes come under the leadership of The Citadel’s new president, General Glenn Walters. In a message to The Citadel family posted online, the president said the change is intended to balance the number of cadets in each company. However, some former graduates are disappointed with the change. “The Citadel is modernizing, which is fantastic, which is absolutely necessary,” 2007 alumnus Josh Harpe said. “But changing the companies after their freshmen year, that’s something more for the service academies, and The Citadel is not a service academy.”

4. Opinion: Wearing white at SOTU was a symbol of united purpose
The Post and Courier recently reported on viral Instagram and Facebook posts by state Rep. Nancy Mace that were critical of Democratic women in Congress who dressed in white for the recent State of the Union address as a show of solidarity and united purpose. Rep. Mace saw that as something that “set women back.” She said, “As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story. The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore.” She also said, “We don’t need to dress alike. We don’t need to think alike. We don’t need to act alike. We simply need to be present and be working for ALL of the people who elected us.” I’ve quoted Rep. Mace more extensively than I usually do in a responsive opinion column because I understand and respect her opinion. I also celebrate the courage and persistence that she displayed when she shattered a glass ceiling and became the first woman to graduate from The Citadel. I also, however, respectfully offer Rep. Mace a little food for thought. She not only proved her worth and ability at The Citadel — she also wore a cadet uniform that symbolized success in and victory over a shared crucible of discipline, loyalty and commitment. One of my deceased friends who was an early black Citadel graduate said something profound about his cadet experience. He said, “The first black cadets faced opposition, resentment and outright racism, but the one thing that we had in common with all cadets was the uniform.” It was a symbol of shared — if somewhat grudging and elusive — unity of purpose and commitment.

6. Former Citadel star Dee Delaney reaches NFL, keeps promise to school custodian
The elevator doors opened, and former Citadel All-American Dee Delaney wheeled a beach-cruiser bicycle into the school’s football office. Waiting there was Curtis Carter, a longtime custodian at the military school and one of the first friends Delaney made at The Citadel. “I promised you a bike my freshman year, and here it is,” Delaney said. “I love it, man,” Carter answered. Delaney was a freshman from the tiny town of Seabrook in Beaufort County when he came to The Citadel in 2013. But Carter, who has worked in The Citadel’s athletic facilities for almost 30 years, saw something special in the nervous knob. “When I got here my freshman year, Curtis told me, ‘I see something in you. You are going to play in the NFL with my team, the Jets,’” Delaney recalled this week. “I just liked how he always said to me, ‘I hope you are still working, because you are going to play in the league.’” Carter’s words came true as Delaney blossomed into an All-American cornerback for the Bulldogs, graduating from The Citadel before transferring to Miami for his final college season. Just as he did Curtis’ words of encouragement, Delaney carries the lessons learned at The Citadel. “It’s the discipline, and doing the little things,” he said. “You have to get up and make your bed, shine your shoes and do the little things that teach you about life. You are never too big to do the small things in life, and it’s those small things that will get you big things. I think about that every day.”

7. Tisdale scores 29, helps ETSU hold off The Citadel 91-83

For long stretches on Thursday night, The Citadel basketball team resembled the one that started the season by winning nine of its first 11 games. Zane Najdawi scored inside and out, as did point guard Lew Stallworth. With Matt Frierson out with illness, Kaiden Rice rained in 3-pointers. But in the end, it wasn’t enough at ETSU. The Bucs became the fourth Southern Conference team with 20 wins this season, turning a halftime deficit into a 91-83 victory at Freedom Hall in Johnson City, Tenn. It was The Citadel’s best 3-point shooting performance since the Bulldogs made 23 of 40 (57.5 percent) in a 112-87 win over High Point on Nov. 27. “That team resembled the pre-Christmas team, was a lot more like the 9-2 team,” said Bulldogs coach Duggar Baucom, whose team led by 46-40 at halftime. “And that’s the first glimpse we’ve had of that. We can win more games with that effort and execution.”

4. How the Word Liberalism Came to Mean Its Opposite
Over time, words sometimes change their meanings or connotations. Think of the words naughty and nice. Apparently, naughty originally meant to have or be nothing (naught or zero), but then it took on the extra sense of something being worth nothing, until finally a person who was considered worth nothing became a bad individual, or at least someone who is mischievous — as in, what a “naughty boy,” with an accompanying wink. On the other hand, a nice person, it seems, early on meant someone who was ignorant, but then took on the added meanings of being a silly or foolish person. By the 1700s, it had its more current meanings of an agreeable or pleasant person. Though it can be used sarcastically — for instance, with the phrase “Oh, yeah, that’s ‘real nice’” meaning something said or done that is rude, disrespectful, or nasty toward another. The same thing has happened with the word liberalism. Friends and foes have changed its meaning several times over the last couple of centuries, and in the eyes of some its content and connotation have been transformed beyond recognition. 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.

Delaney, now a 2nd-year NFL player for the Miami Dolphins, made good Tuesday on those words he uttered six years ago. The Beaufort County native brought the bike to Carter while visiting his alma mater Tuesday.

Bucs out to end losing streak with Citadel coming to town
East Tennessee State enters its next game on a rare losing streak, and it’s something coach Steve Forbes wants to end right away. The Bucs, who play host to The Citadel at 7 p.m. Thursday in a Southern Conference basketball game at Freedom Hall, are coming off losses to Wofford and Furman. Those results left them in a third-place tie with virtually no chance to win the league’s regular-season title. The Bulldogs have lost 10 of their last 12 games, but they’re coming off a 67-61 victory over Mercer. Points should be available on Thursday night. No team in the country allows more than the Citadel. The Bulldogs’ opponents are averaging 85.1 points per game. There are 351 teams listed in the NCAA Division I basketball stats, and that ranks 350th.

Off The Field With MSU Head Baseball Coach Chris Lemonis
How did you wind up playing for The Citadel after high school? "Around Christmas, we moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina my junior year of high school. I played for a coach who had just graduated from The Citadel, Rick Hardwick. He was my senior year high school coach. I actually got a scholarship to play The Citadel. I went on a visit to The Citadel on a Scholar's Day. Halfway through the day I told my parents that I didn't want to go to school there. So, we left. But my parents still turned in my application. In the spring, I received an academic scholarship to go to The Citadel. I didn't want to go there because I wanted to go to the University of Texas because I had grown up a fan of Texas. But I didn't make a decision until after my senior year. The Citadel coach came to our legion game, saw me play and said I had a spot on his team. I had no other offers and I wanted to continue playing baseball so I went there. I walked into the locker room my first day and couldn't find my nameplate. We walked to the very back and I was the last nameplate. I had a view of the toilet. That is a true story. My dad and I still laugh about that to this day. I was a walkon, probably the bullpen catcher." After your Citadel playing career what did you do? "I could have played Independent League pro ball but I decided not to go. I was a 5-11 first baseman, so I knew my chances of having a pro career. I had the chance to get a job and coach right away, so I took it. I coached high school ball for a year, then got the chance to go back to The Citadel and coach. I coached there for 12 years. I spent my first seven years with Dan McDonnell, who was also an assistant coach there while I was. And my next five I was the recruiting coordinator. Then, when Dan got the Louisville job I went with him as a coach."

1. The Citadel and NAN meet to address old yearbook images

It was a controversy around the country, photos of the Governor of Virginia, in his yearbook, in a racially insensitive photo. Now, a local college is coming out to say their yearbooks have pictures of people in racially insensitive photos too. Officials with the Citadel are meeting with members of the National Action Network. Elder Johnson with the National Action Network says he was sent old Citadel yearbook photos of people in racially insensitive photos or making racist comments and of course this all follows the controversy facing Virginia state officials. This is something the Citadel has been transparent about while The president addressed the issue in a statement last week and in today's meeting. What could be done to get rid of those pictures could be discussed and that the yearbooks will likely be placed away but a couple of those pictures will be saved and used as teaching devices.

Full Citadel conversation with local media can be seen here: https://www.counton2.com/news/citadel-presser_20190211233147/1774006468

2. Citadel responds to criticism over blackface images in old yearbooks

The Citadel will review its collection of past yearbooks for racially offensive images and, when it deems necessary, will insert information sheets noting the offensive images don’t represent the school’s values. Its announcement came moments after Citadel President Gen. Glenn Walters met with members of the National Action Network, which sought the meeting after cadets alerted the civil rights group to the images. James Johnson, president of the local NAN chapter, praised the move. “I think it was a good and fruitful meeting,” Johnson said. “This is a victory for everybody.” Virginia’s politics have been roiled for more than a week over whether Gov. Ralph Northam posed in blackface and whether he should resign as a result. Last week, Walters sent out a message to The Citadel’s community acknowledging that some disturbing racist images are part of the school’s past, specifically singling out old yearbooks (known as The Sphinx).

Ralph Norman has come under fire for a blackface photo he says he was not in. Elder James Johnson says Citadel cadets found five photos in old Citadel yearbooks that depicted different kinds of racist imagery including blackface. Johnson added that during a meeting with Citadel officials, they promised to take the photos out of the yearbooks and Johnson described the meetings as productive. “We acknowledged that in the past we do have images that are offensive and we’re very transparent about those” Citadel spokesman Col. John Dorrian said. “We want people to understand that those images have nothing to do with what cadet life is all about now at The Citadel.”

"We acknowledge that in the past we do have images that are offensive and we are very transparent about those. We don't want to offend,” said Colonel John L. Dorrian, vice president of communications and marketing with The Citadel during a press conference held by a non-profit civil rights organization on Monday. “We want to make sure people understand that those images have nothing to do what cadet life is all about now at The Citadel." Last week, five "disturbing" photos of racially insensitive images from past yearbooks were sent to the state chapter of the National Action Network (NAN), according to Elder James Johnson with NAN.

5. Three Jeers for Government Regulation

The appeal of and the rationales for government intervention and regulation of private enterprise never seem to disappear. Time and time again, as soon as some theoretical argument for or historical instance of interventionism has been challenged and demonstrated to be false and a failure, another one soon arises to replace it. Truly, the price of economic liberty is eternal vigilance. One of the most amazing and frustrating aspects of this never-ending conflict with the philosophy of the interventionist state is that its proponents seem to always fall back on the same types of arguments. The rhetoric may be modified and the content of the rationales may be shifted about, but the underlying premises and presumptions remain the same. Let us look at one recent example of this. Dr. Diane Coyle is a professor of public policy at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. In a recent article, “Three Cheers for Regulation,” she says that it is a serious error to presume that government intervention is always economically wasteful or always serves anti-social business interests wishing to be protected from market competition.

Citadel baseball invests money in analytics ‘to keep up and catch up’
Walk into Citadel baseball coach Tony Skole’s office at McAlister Field House, and it hasn’t changed much from the one Fred Jordan occupied for 26 years. Heck, it hasn’t changed much from the office the late Chal Port used in 1990, when he led the Bulldogs to the College World Series. “At The Citadel, things change every day,” said Skole, who played on that 1990 team. “But sometimes, it seems like they never change. We decided it was time to spend some money and do some things to keep up and catch back up.”

Opp, Citadel 1st at JDL College Team Challenge
The Citadel track and field teams concluded competition in the JDL College Team Challenge on Thursday evening with a pair of first-place finishes. For the women, that included Draughn High grad Amber Opp, who finished third in the 3,000-meter run. "Overall, most of our cadet-athletes are where they need to be at this point in the season. We are in the middle of our load phase and they still are running personal records and season bests," said Citadel assistant coach Kris Kut. "We will begin to taper and have a tune-up next week at South Carolina and should be ready for the Southern Conference Championships. We are very pleased with the progression they have shown, and we are glad all their hard work is being displayed in competition."

1. The Charleston Chronicle: Minority leadership at The Citadel Demonstrates its Evolution

For the first time in its storied 175-year history, The Citadel’s two most senior regimental officers both are minorities. Cadet Sarah Zorn is first in command as the cadet corps’ regimental commander and Cadet David Days is the corps’ second in command as its executive officer. As one of the nation’s foremost military colleges, The Citadel since its founding in 1842 has represented the epitome of a culture of white male dominance. And it has been a training place for some of the nation’s most prominent military, business and political leaders. However that culture of exclusivity began to change in 1966 when the first African American cadet, Charles Foster, was enrolled. In 1996 The Citadel enrolled its first female cadet, Shannon Faulkner. The 571-member class of 2017 included 50 African Americans, 38 females, 36 Hispanics, 27 Asian or Pacific Islanders and 14 Native Americans. In the fall of 2018, Zorn and Days became the first female and African Americans to lead the cadet corps.

3. Tim Scott calls on Virginia to address its ‘obvious looming’ racial scandal

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott waited until the last two minutes of his 20-minute speech at the Charleston County GOP Black History banquet Friday night to condemn the latest racial scandal to rock American politics, this time in Virginia. “There are some things that have been buried in the soil for so long, it’s going to spring up,” Scott told more than 300 attendees at The Citadel’s Holliday Alumni Center. “So we’ve got to deal with those issues,” Scott, R-S.C., said. “These are not Republican issues. They’re not Democrat issues. They’re issues of the human heart, and we’ve got to figure that out.”

4. Historic downtown Charleston church surviving gentrification, internal struggles
Like several other black churches on the rapidly gentrifying Charleston peninsula, St. John’s Reformed Episcopal is hanging on. The church at 91 Anson St. is struggling to map out its future downtown where new apartments and pricier residences — many occupied by white college students and working professionals — have changed the demographics of what had been a largely black neighborhood. “The struggle for us is we are still trying to make the adjustment,” said the Rev. Willie Hill, pastor of St. John’s. In 1873, the Reformed Episcopal denomination formed when it split from the Protestant Episcopal Church after the Protestant group refused to train and ordain black ministers. The movement entered the Charleston area the following year when the Rev. Peter Stevens, a white Confederate Army veteran and former superintendent of The Citadel, left the Protestant Episcopal Church and organized groups of black freedmen across the Lowcountry.

5. Why SC Rep. Nancy Mace pushed back against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and women in white

Nancy Mace, R-Daniel Island, is no stranger to breaking gender barriers. In 1999, she became the first woman to graduate from The Citadel’s Corps of Cadets. In 2018, she became the first woman to represent House District 9 in the South Carolina Legislature. But as the Republican state lawmaker watched the wave of women wearing white during the State of the Union Address last week, she could only think one thing: This is setting women back. She did not wait to share that message. She grabbed her iPhone, picked a photo featuring U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surrounded by other Democratic women in Congress wearing white, and she typed out a 241-word post. She shared it on Instagram and Facebook the next morning.

8b. Citadel baseball invests money in analytics ‘to keep up and catch up’
Walk into Citadel baseball coach Tony Skole’s office at McAlister Field House, and it hasn’t changed much from the one Fred Jordan occupied for 26 years. Heck, it hasn’t changed much from the office the late Chal Port used in 1990, when he led the Bulldogs to the College World Series. “At The Citadel, things change every day,” said Skole, who played on that 1990 team. “But sometimes, it seems like they never change. We decided it was time to spend some money and do some things to keep up and catch back up.” That’s why Skole, entering his second season atop The Citadel program, spent some $70,000 on upgrades during the offseason — not on office furniture, but on analytics systems and fixes to the practice field at College Park that can make an immediate impact on the Bulldogs’ competitiveness.

2. A message from the President

Citadel Family: From time to time current events present an opportunity to discuss issues important to our college. Recent public discourse about the Governor of Virginia responding to questions after he was depicted in a yearbook alongside disturbing racist images and words present such an opportunity. The images are 35 years old, but they are jarring and offensive. The effect of these yearbook images is similar to insensitive content posted to social media. Once the yearbook images were published, there was no way to make them go away. The images are deeply hurtful. No institution or person is immune from the damage such images can cause, including The Citadel. For more than a century, The Citadel yearbook, The Sphinx, has captured images of cadets and depicted cadet life. These books are a part of the history of the college and show the evolution of the institution and the cadets, students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Unfortunately, some of the images from these yearbooks are deeply disturbing and offensive, depicting racist, sexist or abusive conduct or language. The images have periodically been rediscovered by members of our campus community, media representatives or members of the public. While these photos are not recent, when viewed, they cause a visceral reaction, and people are understandably upset. Like many institutions, The Citadel has learned a lot over the years about the damage such images can inflict. As painful as these images are, they are a part of the history of the college. We do not and will not shy away from discussing them because they are a reminder of what happens if members of our community stray from the core values of honor, duty and respect that are such an important part of campus life. Indeed, The Citadel recently presented the images to a group of community leaders to advance conversations about race.

There’s a few things we need to work on and a few things we need to work on and a few guys we need to develop on offense.

Celiz, a native of Summerville, South Carolina, was 32 years old, a husband and a father. Army Special Operations Command reported that Celiz was on his fifth deployment with the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment based at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah. He previously deployed from 2008 to 2009 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and from 2011 to 2012 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

2. A message from the President

Dear Citadel Family, Occasionally, The Citadel refines processes or procedures to assure the college is running smoothly. When we make significant refinements, we will explain why we’re taking the action so that our Citadel family understands the action being taken and why. With that in mind I would like to provide an update on a refinement we are making to cadet company assignments. Starting in academic year 2020-2021, The Citadel will assign each rising sophomore cadet to a different company than the one they were in for freshman year. The change to the cadet assignment program is intended to balance the number of cadets in each company, which provides a number of benefits. Historically, cadet attrition varies significantly between companies. When higher attrition occurs in a company, fewer sophomores are available to hold rank. The following year, that company accepts a larger number of freshmen to fill empty beds. Over time, that imbalance results in some companies with very low numbers of juniors and seniors, which has a detrimental impact on the cohesiveness of the company chain of command. Balancing the number of sophomore cadets in each company will reduce the negative effects these imbalances can cause. Both West Point and the U.S. Air Force Academy have implemented similar strategies to balance their Corps of Cadets, and balancing the Corps is consistent with several internal studies conducted at The Citadel. Ultimately, we believe that this refinement to the assignment of cadets will help to standardize a professional, powerful leadership experience that will help transform cadets into the principled leaders they aspire to be.

4. Avoid These Wealth Management Mistakes

Niall J. Gannon, Tailored Wealth Management: Exploring the Cause and Effect of Financial Success, published 2019 by Palgrave Macmillan and reproduced with permission of SNCSC Mistakes in the investment craft are a given. Warren Buffett makes them; I have made them, and you will certainly make them. The key is to minimize their number and size and to learn from your mistakes by which I mean to make a conscious effort NOT to fall into the trap of repeating an easily avoidable mistake. A very common mistake investors make is to sell AFTER experiencing a precipitous decline in their portfolio. If an investor sells at the bottom, it can do irreversible harm, and for this reason it is critical for investors to understand WHAT they own and WHY they own it. What follows are some real-life examples of what investor mistakes look like.

Niall J. Gannon is a Private Wealth Advisor to ultra-high-net-worth investors and lead member of the Gannon Group. He has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 100 Financial Advisors by Barron’s and Registered Rep. He is the author of Tailored Wealth Management: Exploring the Cause and Effect of Financial Success (Palgrave Macmillan; 2019) and Investing Strategies for the High Net-Worth Investor: Maximize Returns on Taxable Portfolios (McGraw-Hill, 2009). In 2018 he published The Efficient Valuation Hypothesis in Seeking Alpha. Niall received the Silver Congressional Award, President’s Volunteer Service Award, alumnus of the year at The Citadel School of Business, PMI Portfolio Manager of the Year Award, and is a member of The Order of St. Louis the King.

5. SC First District Poll: Rematch? Or New Blood?

Pollster Robert Cahaly of the Atlanta, Georgia-based Trafalgar Group has issued his long-awaited survey on the GOP race for the South Carolina first congressional district. And when Cahaly polls in the Palmetto State, people listen … with good reason. The first district will be the national Republican party’s top priority for the 2020 congressional election cycle after it was claimed last November by Democrat Joe Cunningham – a stunning upset that ended nearly four decades of GOP rule. As expected, Cahaly’s poll – like one conducted by another firm conducted last November – shows the two candidates who battled for the this nomination last spring continuing to draw significant levels of support. Former GOP nominee Katie Arrington, a 47-year-old cybersecurity expert at the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), was backed by 25.5 percent of the respondents in the poll. That put her narrowly ahead of former congressman Mark Sanford – whom she vanquished in last June’s GOP primary election. In fifth place on the Cahaly survey is state representative Nancy Mace (above), another Berkeley County resident and the candidate many believe has the most “upside” of anyone included in this poll. Mace, 41, will likely pick up a big chunk of Grooms’ support once he confirms his decision to stay in the Senate. Meanwhile her compelling personal narrative (she is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel military college) is exactly what national Republicans are looking for in a challenger to Cunningham. Mace – an adept fundraiser – has reportedly already met with several national GOP donors in Washington, D.C., and we are told they liked what they saw. Also keep this in mind: Of all the names included on the Cahaly survey, hers is the one most likely to appear on the GOP ballot come June of 2020. Other would-be candidates are weighing their options at this point, but Mace has reportedly told her backers she is “all in.”

6. First woman Citadel graduate says women wearing white at State of The Union ‘sets women back’

The first woman Citadel graduate and Lowcountry state representative Nancy Mace posted on Instagram Wednesday morning saying that the female politicians who wore white at the State of The Union on Tuesday night “further sets women back.” Mace accompanied her post with a photo of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wearing white at the State of The Union on Tuesday night. Mace also said that women make a mistake when they make their identity the story. “The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore,” she said. “The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. We can ALL achieve the American dream regardless of our gender.” Mace enrolled at the school in the fall of 1996 and graduated in 1999. Shannon Faulkner was the first to enroll at the school but didn’t graduate.

7a. Spirituals - The sound of South Carolina and the Lowcountry
“Swing Low” is a Spiritual. I wanted to pay tribute to my state’s heritage and upbringing by preserving this music and making it the official South Carolina State Music. And to honor Black History Month, I felt compelled to share what I know about the Spirituals and my experience in making it a permanent part of our great state and the Sound of South Carolina. The idea to make the Spiritual our state’s official music came about while I was a graduate student in the Joint MA History Program through The Citadel and the University of Charleston (College of Charleston Graduate School). I wrote a major research paper on African American Religious Music in the Antebellum South that revealed the strong link South Carolina has with the Spiritual. But had it not been for an individual I met during my research, this paper would only have resulted in a grade and the fulfillment of a requirement for the degree. I want to acknowledge a wonderful lady from St. Helena Island, Mrs. Lula Mitchell Holmes, who not only helped me get a good grade on my paper, but also inspired me to do something to preserve this music, culture, and heritage. Mrs. Holmes, a descendant of the slaves on St. Helena Island, would perform the “Gullah Shout” that begins with a Spiritual.

7b. As longtime Charleston hardware store relocates, residents worry about changing peninsula
The same gentrification and tourism that’s contributing to all the hotel construction and restaurant openings is making its way up the city’s avenues into historically black neighborhoods. This isn’t a new phenomenon, but it’s gaining strength and pressuring long-time residents more than ever. Drive along Cannon or Spring streets — the once-thriving downtown commercial corridor of black Charleston — and take note of the yoga studios and coffee shops. Thad Miller, operator of Family Barber Shop on Spring Street, has clipped hair in the Cannonborough-Elliottborough neighborhood since 1970. The barbershop first opened in 1956, when legal segregation remained in force and, consequently, African Americans relied on a tightly knit (and more robust) black economy that included financiers, service providers and retailers. Integration brought change, including economic transformations that did not always benefit black communities. Today, African-American residents and black-owned businesses on the peninsula are under pressure by rising rents and other costs. The “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial District” — the Spring Street and Cannon Street corridor — is gentrifying fast. Many of the former black businesses are gone, replaced by white-owned bakeries and coffee shops, restaurants and wedding boutiques. But Miller is holding on. He said business remains strong and his building, a dilapidated old house, soon will be renovated. Miller now cuts the hair of white customers, some from the Medical University or The Citadel or the College of Charleston. “The clientele has changed tremendously,” he said.

9a. Citadel football signs 13 to boost recruiting haul to 27, most since 2012

After signing 14 recruits in December, Citadel football coach Brent Thompson speculated that he’d likely sign nine or 10 more during February’s second signing period. That number eventually grew to the 13 players signed by The Citadel on Wednesday, giving the Bulldogs a total of 27 players in the 2019 recruiting class. That’s the military school’s largest class since it signed 29 new players in 2012. Citadel coaches recruited with an eye toward a new defensive scheme that will be based on a 3-4 alignment, with three down linemen and four linebackers. The 13 new signees include three linemen, three linebackers and four defensive backs.

9b. Signing Day a family affair for Meredith siblings, who are South Carolina and Citadel bound

Huw and Sami Meredith didn’t exactly have a sibling rivalry growing up – it was more of a friendly competition. “We competed at everything, but it was always fun. We didn’t take it too seriously,” said Sami, who is 11 months younger than her big brother. Sami and Huw are both seniors at Wando High School. Sami is headed to the University of South Carolina to play soccer. Huw is going to The Citadel and will play football. The Meredith siblings were among 48 Charleston County athletes recognized at the school district’s headquarters during a National Signing Day ceremony. In all, 85 high school students from Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties signed athletic scholarships.

9c. DAVE CECCHINI NAMED HEAD FOOTBALL COACH AT BUCKNELL
Dave Cecchini, one of the all-time great wide receivers in Patriot League history who has since gone on to achieve tremendous success in the coaching ranks, has been named the 27th Bob Odell Head Football Coach at Bucknell University, director of athletics and recreation Jermaine Truax announced Wednesday. Most recently the head coach at Valparaiso University, Cecchini has a long track record of building explosive offenses at elite academic institutions. Previously the offensive coordinator at Lehigh University, The Citadel and Harvard University, his offenses have shattered school records at his every stop, propelling his teams to a combined seven conference championships. An All-American wide receiver at Lehigh during his playing days in the early 1990s, Cecchini spent 13 of his 24 seasons as a coach at his alma mater. From 2007 to 2009, Cecchini served as The Citadel's offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach. During his first season in Charleston, the Bulldogs finished with their best record in 15 years, bolstered by an offense that set 16 school records, including points per game (39.5) and total offense (437.6). Cecchini mentored wide receiver Andre Roberts, a First Team All-American who set Citadel records in single-season receptions (95), receiving yards (1,334) and touchdown catches (15). Roberts, who was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2010 National Football League Draft, is currently a member of the New York Jets organization.

2. SC Sen. Tim Scott will headline Charleston GOP’s Black History Month event

Tim Scott, the U.S. Senate’s sole black Republican who has been outspoken on issues of race during the Donald Trump presidency, will headline the Charleston County Republican Party’s second annual Black History Month event Friday. Party Chairman Larry Kobrovsky said the program plans were finalized late Monday. The local political group found itself scrambling to find a replacement speaker last week after learning U.S. Housing Secretary Dr. Ben Carson would be unable to headline the event as originally planned. Lt. Gov. Pam Evette will open the event and the Rev. Eric Manning of Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church will serve as the inspirational closer, Kobrovsky said. The organization’s celebration of black history will include recognition of several civic leaders, including Ken Battle, the commissioner for South Carolina Minority Affairs; the Rev. Dr. Eric Mack, chairman of the Charleston County School Board; Tamara Curry, Charleston County associate probate judge; Art Gilliard, director of Art Forms and Theatre Concepts; and former state Rep. Samuel Rivers Jr. The event is 6-9 p.m. Friday at the Holliday Alumni Center, 69 Hagood St.

3. Debts and Deficits are Out of Control
Understandably, the problems and politics of the moment dominate the news and attract the attention of most policy commentators and much of the public. Will there be another government shutdown, will House Democrats attempt to impeach the president, will interest rates remain low, and will there be a trade war with China? But there are longer-term problems as well, and one of them is the rising U.S. national debt due to annual government budget deficits as far into the future as the eye can see. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently issued its latest “Budget and Economic Outlook” projection, covering the next decade, 2019-29. And it is not a pretty picture. As of the beginning of February 2019, the cumulative federal government debt is approaching $22 trillion. This comes out to a per capita burden of nearly $67,000 for all those residing in the United States, and about $179,500 per U.S. taxpayer. 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.

9. Trevor Stumpe gives Wofford a new look
floor Trevor Stumpe scored a basket. It was a little jumper that to most wouldn’t appear to mean much in an eventual 38-point victory for Wofford in Saturday’s game at The Citadel. Make no doubt. It was huge. Stumpe hadn’t scored a field goal in 323 days, not since last March against Central Michigan. But with the junior returning to the court following back surgery in October, the Terriers have even more reason to believe they won’t settle for the College Insiders Tournament at the end of this season. They are 19-4 overall, 11-0 in the Southern Conference heading into Thursday’s game at East Tennessee State (19-5, 9-2).

4. Commentary: Easy, free parking is not the answer to Charleston’s parking problem
Car parking is a hot-button issue around the world and has been one in Charleston for decades. We all know that housing on the peninsula is too expensive and thus many employees -- some who live within sight just across the Ashley River -- have to drive in and park (and there are no realistic transportation alternatives for most commuters right now). Also, as a major tourist destination, we scare off tourists with stories of horrid traffic and lack of parking. What is the solution? Almost 20 years ago the city invited Charleston Moves to take part in an all-day traffic workshop. Because I was teaching at The Citadel all day, I could only come in for the last hour to hear the conclusions. Some of the recommendations were interesting and appropriate. Unfortunately, most were not. I was amazed that the conclusions (build more garages, I recall, was the most popular) did not include any mention of trying to reduce the number of cars in the first place, which is vital in solving the parking problem. Donald L. Sparks, Ph.D., was the co-founder of Charleston Moves and vice president of the League of American Bicyclists in Washington, D.C.

5. Letters: Trump-loving politicians reflect Hoosier mindset
Your editorial “On the Other Hand” and Steve Etheridge's letter “President's moral vacuity should worry lawmakers” (Jan. 30) accurately describe our elected officials Jim Banks, Mike Braun and Todd Young. Banks “is a loyal Trump follower in a district where the president clearly has wide support” while Banks, Braun, Young and the vice president are “silent, complacent and thus complicit toward the amorality/immorality of the current president.” In my calls and letters to Banks' office, I found him frequently unwilling to place country and state ahead of political party, but I am much less sanguine than Mr. Etheridge that this quadrumvirate of sanctimonious politicians will ever “have the courage to take a stand for Hoosier (American) values to resist and reject” the values of President Trump. Because the one thing my 43-year absence from Indiana has proven to me is that Trump's values are indeed Hoosier values. In 1968, my professor of Latin American studies at The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, remarked to me that “Indiana is the most Southern-minded of all Northern states.” Because I grew up in Terre Haute trying to get out of the state – at which I succeeded from 1970 to 2013 – it took me a while to fully understand the significance of his remark. Hoosiers, especially our obsequious vice president, like to think of themselves solely in terms of the “down-home, aw shucks” poetry of James Whitcomb Riley, when the reality is Indiana ranked as the seventh highest non-Southern state for racial lynchings and was home to the largest Ku Klux Klan organization in the country in the 1920s. These values of bigotry and intolerance are still alive and well in Indiana, exacerbated and encouraged by then-Gov. Pence's ill-conceived 2015 Religious Freedom Restoration Act and now encouraged on a daily basis by Trump and his base (and by some of the frequent letter writers to this paper). Indiana can be better than this – but with this president, this representative and these senators pandering to Hoosiers' worst instincts, I doubt it. Emory Earl Toops Fort Wayne

2. Proposals to create an education ‘tsar’ in SC, end social studies tests draw opposition

While House Speaker Jay Lucas has been widely praised for making the transformation of South Carolina’s public schools his top priority, his proposal drew a lot of fire in the week since he introduced a sweeping reform bill, prompting him and others to stress that the legislation remains a work in progress. The massive, 84-page bill, introduced Jan. 24, represents the largest legislative effort to overhaul education in 35 years. It comes in the wake of The Post and Courier’s Minimally Adequate series in November, which laid out how gaping disparities have made South Carolina’s public school system one of the nation’s worst and left students unprepared for college or the modern workforce. The bill examines how state colleges prepare future teachers. Larry Daniel, education dean at The Citadel and former chairman of an alliance of the state’s 30 college education deans, praised incentivizing highly effective teachers to go to failing schools by letting their children attend college tuition-free. But he opposed requiring education majors to pass a test to show they can teach students to read in order to become an elementary school teacher. He called it an unnecessary deterrent, noting a 2014 law already requires teacher-preparation programs to add coursework on how to teach students to read. “This is our first best shot in a long time to do something incredible for education in the Palmetto State,” Daniel said. “Let’s get it right.” He also opposed the creation of a report card on teacher preparation programs. Proponents say it could force some colleges to improve their programs, while letting prospective teachers know which can best prepare them.

3. Safe and secure: Charlie Teague talks about his path to protecting presidents

As seen in The Mitchell News-Journal, by Brandon Roberts When former President Ronald Reagan spoke to Gregory Charles Teague’s graduating class at The Citadel, it changed his life – but it had nothing to do with what was said. “I saw all the secret service guys, and I thought, ‘That looks kind of cool,’ so I looked into that,” Teague said. “I just knew that was what I wanted to do.” In the midst of a government shutdown and in Mitchell County over Christmas to visit his father, Bobby, stepmother, Rebecca, and mother, Ella Jo Willis, of Burnsville, Teague recalled the path that took him from small-town boy to protector of presidents. Charlie, as he’s known, is a Class of 1989 Mitchell High School graduate. He earned a degree in business administration from The Citadel and applied for a job with the Secret Service in 1994 while serving as an officer in the Army National Guard. The Secret Service is an exclusive government agency when comparing its 3,000 agents to others, such as the FBI, which has 35,000.

She’s not just Elon University’s ninth president or first female president; she’s a woman who has experienced the ups, downs and everything in between that come with life. Book began her tenure as Elon’s president last March. Various articles were written celebrating the election of the first female president and her long, impressive involvement in higher education. But these articles missed something: her authenticity. Book owns that one of the things constantly on her mind about leadership is her good fortune. She’s had people like Lt. Gen. John Rosa from the Citadel, former President Leo Lambert as well as other influential people who have had her back in the past. Notably, a lot of these people were men.

Unemployment, poverty, deprivation, marginalization can be contributing factors as well as catalysts to an individual’s pathway to extremism, though it is important to note that, based on numerous social science research reports, the journey to extremism is individualized and personal. In 2017, the United Nations Development Program completed an exhaustive study that included interviews with close to five hundred individuals who joined terrorist groups such as Boko Haram and al-Shabaab. The interviewees’ answers and stories of their respective journeys into and out of extremism continues to vary and to contradict common perceptions; for instance, more than 50 percent of respondents highlighted that they had little to no religious knowledge, debunking the popular perception that religion and ideology are the sole factors of why individuals join extremist groups. Dr. Muhammad Fraser-Rahim is the Executive Director, U.S. of Quilliam International and an Assistant professor at the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. He is a Fellow with Truman National Security Project. Views expressed are his own.

7a. Déjà Food

Take a taste-filled walk down memory lane through some of Charleston’s most beloved 20th-century eateries, from seafood dives to fine dining and everything in between. Goodie House (1948-1997) Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the tiny Calhoun Street eatery was a home away from home for generations of students —Suzannah Smith Miles Now that the place where the Goodie House stood on Calhoun Street is a Clean Juice—what can one say? It’s doubtful the person taking your order knows you by name or will ask how you did on your English lit exam. Nor can you get a hamburger just like you want it or the best chocolate pie ever. For generations of Citadel cadets and College of Charleston students, the Goodie House was home away from home. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it was the place where you went before classes for a quick breakfast and to do that last-minute cramming for a test, where couples in evening clothes ate pancakes and eggs next to a pipe fitter on his way to the graveyard shift at the Navy Yard. It was jammed at lunch with everyone from businessmen to little old ladies to college professors.

7a. Kingslea & Preston | Private Club

The Wedding Row: How did you meet? Kingslea: Preston and I became friends in first grade at Mamie P. Whitesides Elementary School in Mount Pleasant. Our friendship flourished in high school with mutual love for fishing and live music. During his years at The Citadel (and subsequent graduate degree at Auburn) and my time at the University of South Carolina (followed by me becoming a nurse practitioner at the Medical University of South Carolina), we kept in touch. Our love story came full circle in 2016 when we came back into each other’s lives and realized there was a spark. TWR: How did you choose to wed at The Citadel’s Summerall Chapel? Kingslea: Preston and I were both born and raised in Charleston. Men in our families (Moore and Stuhr, respectively) have attended The Citadel for over 100 years. Our decision was also influenced by the admiration of our reverend Rob Sturdy, who is a Citadel alumni, chaplain to Anglican cadets, and pastor of St. Alban’s Chapel.

8. Nothing Patriots’ Stephon Gilmore does surprises his former coach at South Carolina
Steve Spurrier was very clear on what he needed from Ellis Johnson when he brought Johnson on board in 2008 to head up the South Carolina Gamecocks’ defense. Mission No. 1: Find Stephon Gilmore, a rising senior at South Pointe High in Rock Hill, and recruit him to USC. Gilmore is preparing for his second straight Super Bowl appearance with the New England Patriots, the team that picked him up after he spent five years with the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots play the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in Atlanta. Gilmore, a cornerback, was named to his second Pro Bowl this year. His play this season is reminiscent of his dominance while at South Carolina, Johnson said. It’s one of the most impressive things Johnson has seen in his 36 six years of coaching college football. That span includes time at Auburn, Clemson, Southern Mississippi, East Carolina and The Citadel, where he served as head coach from 2001 to 2003. He also graduated from the military school in 1975.

2. More Than Fitness

“We are at a crisis in this country, where 75 percent of young Americans who want to serve in the military don’t qualify,” said exercise science professor Maj. Dan Bornstein. “The largest reason is that they’re either too fat, too unfit or both.” Bornstein, 47, began to realize the importance of physical fitness at the young age of 11. Bornstein brought his ideas and his passion to The Citadel in 2013. “Part of the reason I came to The Citadel is that it’s a military college. I felt that by being here, where leadership is central to the mission of the college, I would have the opportunity to collaborate with others to help The Citadel play a role in demonstrating the importance of physical, mental and psychological fitness, not only for the health of our population, but also for the safety and security of our state and nation.”

3. Citadel releases football schedule, but questions remain about Wofford game

The Citadel released its 12-game schedule for the 2019 college football season on Thursday, but questions remain about the Nov. 23 date for the Wofford game at the Bulldogs’ Johnson Hagood Stadium. As scheduled, that date would fall during Thanksgiving furlough for the military school’s Corps of Cadets; the Thanksgiving break begins Nov. 22. Thanksgiving is on Nov. 28. That would seem to prevent the Corps of Cadets from attending the game in uniform. The school’s Board of Visitors adopted a policy in 2004 requiring the Corps to attend all scheduled home football games. Citadel athletic director Mike Capaccio said that he is trying to get the date of the game changed. “We’re trying to work on that,” he said. “Right now, it is what it is and we’re working on it.” Capaccio said he planned to address the issue at Southern Conference meetings next week. The SoCon assigns the dates for league games.

7. Wofford will face tough tests on the road

The proving ground will be in enemy territory. Wofford went unbeaten through the first half of the Southern Conference men’s basketball schedule and sits at 9-0 in league play, 17-4 overall with the only losses coming against teams that were or still are ranked in the Top 25. The Terriers are second nationally in the College Insiders mid-major poll, behind Gonzaga. There are rumblings already about the Terriers making the NCAA tournament and the chances of being the first team since Davidson with Stephen Curry in 2007-08 to skate through the schedule, including SoCon tournament, unbeaten. But there’s a long way to go and the road for Wofford includes the next three games and six of the final nine away from Spartanburg. The Terriers play at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mercer, 1 p.m. Saturday at The Citadel and then travel next Thursday to East Tennessee State.
