5. GOP Sees Early Spike in Women Eyeing House Bids
Nearly three decades after her family fled communist Vietnam by boat, Janet Nguyen became the youngest person ever elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Then, in 2014, she broke a new record as the country's first Vietnamese-American state senator. Evelyn Sanguinetti, who lives with multiple sclerosis and is the daughter of a Cuban refugee, was the first Latina lieutenant governor in the country when she was elected in 2014 with former Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner. Nancy Mace was the first woman to graduate from the Citadel, a historic military college in South Carolina. Sara Weir, a Kansas native, has led the National Down Syndrome Society for four years. In a potential coup for a national Republican party dominated by older white men, they are among dozens of women already considering runs for Congress on the GOP ticket in 2020.

6. As South Carolina bans grow, bag makers seek help
South Carolina lawmakers are considering taking away the ability of local governments to ban or tax bags and other single-use plastics. But mayors from some of the state's largest cities and coastal towns are pushing back strongly. In a debate that's being echoed in state legislatures around the country, leaders from Charleston and other cities are protesting the move to shift power over single-use plastics away from them. Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said the bag ban his city passed had overwhelming support among residents, and said it was important for tourism and the environment. He also pointed to a study done by graduate students at The Citadel, the state-supported military college in Charleston, and said he was bothered that the research "found microplastics in the oysters I love to eat." "I beseech you to not disallow our ban," Tecklenburg said. "It's very important for our community, for our tourism, for our environment, for this ordinance to proceed."

7. Charleston Battery get OK to sell Daniel Island facility with goal of relocating downtown
Berkeley County Council on Tuesday gave the Charleston Battery permission to sell the soccer team's Daniel Island facility, as the club explores a relocation to downtown Charleston. The county council passed a resolution March 26 giving the Battery clearance to transfer ownership of MUSC Health Stadium and all its Berkeley County property to a local subsidiary of Atlanta-based developer Holder Properties, which owns property throughout the Charleston area. Rumor has it, the new stadium will be relocated to the The Citadel's Johnson-Hagood Memorial Stadium. The Citadel's Director of Athletics, Mike Capaccio, released a statement confirming the possibility of such a move. “There have been some preliminary discussions with the Battery, but we are a long way from any decision," Capaccio said. "We are going to do what is best for The Citadel's athletic program, our cadet-athletes and our fans.”

2. Charleston Battery owner to sell pro soccer club’s Daniel Island stadium
The longtime home pitch of the Charleston Battery is set to be sold to a real estate developer in a deal that will likely bring the professional soccer club’s matches to downtown Charleston next year. Holland Park LLC, which holds a lease on the facility, is close to finalizing a deal to sell MUSC Health Stadium and the surrounding land, including the practice field and offices, according to documents filed with Berkeley County. The Battery is working on a deal to relocate, with the hopes of playing next year’s matches at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium. The club has approached The Citadel about leasing Johnson Hagood Stadium for its matches beginning in 2020. “We’ve held some preliminary discussions with the Battery, but nothing has been finalized,” said Mike Capaccio, athletic director for the military college. “We’re going to do what’s best for The Citadel’s athletic program, our student-athletes and our fans.”

1. Pondering Plastic - Wildlife, Bans and Trash

What is happening in the ocean when it comes to plastic? Scientists say anywhere from 5 to 12 million tons of plastic are swept into the sea each year. Some are large, identifiable chunks of plastic. Others are microplastics, so small they can’t be seen with the naked eye. It’s believed by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Dr. John Weinstein, the chair of the biology department at the Citadel, says much of his research about plastics has been student driven. He was finishing a project about the impact of oil spills when cadets expressed an interest in plastic trash. “It was about five years ago, when the great Pacific garbage patch was in the news just about every day,” he says. They decided to track plastic trash in the Charleston Harbor by teaming up with a local beach sweep. What they found was more than 7 tons of plastic debris along the shore, mostly single use plastics like bags, straws and cups. “We don’t know how much is underwater,” he says. “There’s probably more.”

2. Letter: Bridge run

Marcus Newberry and the late Julian Smith get a lot of credit for the bridge run. They both deserve it. While at The Citadel I was taking a turn as chair of the run’s executive committee. We had a lot of challenges then. There was no title sponsor, very few corporate contributors, and we had just lost the event director. Benita Schlau and Tami Varn led a competent staff and volunteer group, and Benita reluctantly agreed to direct the event for a year. It was a success. People ran across our mountain, but there were no title sponsors, no long-term contributing sponsors, only a fraction of today’s field and wellness activities and no full-time director. MUSC, once again, came to the table with a long-term solution. Dr. Gil Bradham, with Dr. Newberry’s support, offered the director of their Wellness Center, Julian Smith. He had no experience with such events, but he had the pedigree and enthusiasm, plus a facility capable of supporting the event and future developments.

3. Charleston F&B professionals on how to pick your first wine after childbirth

As their due dates approach, pregnant women have to make all manner of potentially momentous decisions. Epidural or drug-free? Co-sleeping or crib? And most crucially, what kind of wine will they uncork to toast the new baby’s arrival? Like many mothers, San Francisco restaurateur Shelley Lindgren turned to Champagne for her post-childbirth celebration. But Lindgren, who in 2015 received the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine Program award for her work at A16, was highly specific in her selection. She planned on drinking a Cuvee Winston Churchill, the prestige label from the Pol Roger house. Frances Bramlett, now director of donor relations for The Citadel Foundation, has been in recovery for 13 years. But she offers that a pet-nat like the one Pratt chose would be her pick “if I was going to have a baby and I was still imbibing.” Perhaps she’d go with the Sebastien Brunet on the list at babas on cannon, the cafe co-owned by her daughter, Marie Stitt, a sales manager for Grassroots Wine. (At press time, Stitt was scheduled to give birth to her first child in late March. She zeroed in on a meaningful Champagne in advance.)

7. With Anderson out, who are the potential candidates to take his place?
On March 26, The University of Arkansas said goodbye to their head basketball coach from 2011-2019, Mike Anderson. After the initial shock of the news, fans immediately started speculating who is next in line to be the head Hog. This list is purely speculation, but these names have been thrown around on social media as potential replacements. Charleston head coach Earl Grant Grant began his coaching career as an assistant at The Citadel under Pat Dennis from 2002 to 2004. Gregg Marshall hired Grant as an assistant at Winthrop University in 2004, and when Marshall left to take the head coaching gig at Wichita State in 2007, he brought Grant along with him. Grant was hired as an assistant at Clemson in 2010. On September 2, 2014, Grant was hired as the head coach of the College of Charleston. Win totals of 25, 26 and 24 in the last three seasons with an NCAA appearance in 2018.

1. Here's who's running for mayor of Charleston this year — so far
Four men have shown interest in being the next mayor of Charleston. Anyone raising money to run for office must file paperwork with the State Ethics Commission. While these filings don't prove who will actually go through the process of running, they at least indicate indicate who's looking to preside over future City Council meetings. Candidates for mayor must officially file to run with city lawyer Susan Herdina, but the filing period is not open yet. It begins at noon on the first Monday in August and ends at noon on the third Monday of the same month, according to city spokeswoman Chloe Field. So far, City Council members Harry Griffin and Gary White have filed campaign disclosures with the state. Griffin, a 23-year-old councilman who represents the upper part of West Ashley, filed with the state agency on Feb. 27. He has raised no money so far and has no cash on hand. The Citadel graduate works in project procurement at Neal Brothers, a North Charleston export packing company. Last month, the self-described social-moderate-but-fiscal-conservative told the City Paper that he was "strongly considering" a run.

3. Liberal Internationalism: True and False, Part 2
The classical liberal international order of the nineteenth century was not planned or designed by anyone. It was, for the most part, the natural outgrowth of the expanding influence of a new political philosophy of freedom, free markets, and free trade. It began to emerge in the wake of the twenty-five years of war that Britain and other European countries had been fighting against France until the final defeat of Napoleon in 1815. This world was shattered by the two world wars, followed by the counterrevolutions of collectivism in their various forms of socialism and communism, fascism, National Socialism (Nazism), and the interventionist-welfare state. Personal freedoms were reduced or extinguished; private-property rights and freedom of exchange were abolished or heavily straitjacketed; international free trade was replaced with trade barriers, restrictions, and prohibitions on the movement of money, goods, and people. Once again, people were made the property of the State to one degree or another. And two destructive world wars were endured, the likes of which had not been experienced before in modern history; tens of millions of people were killed by collectivist regimes or in the wars that collectivism set loose on the world.

3. No Sanitized Pages in History, Please!
Imagine that in 1946 the general-secretary of the United Nations had submitted a resolution to the General Assembly stating that Nazi crimes were so horrendous and despicable that the countries of the world needed to impose a blanket censorship on any public reference to or discussion of Hitler or his henchmen. Only the names of victims were to be mentioned or discussed. And the U.N. member countries, then, unanimously passed this resolution. If such a resolution had been proposed, passed, and fully enforced, what would we know today about the Nazi regime, the German history of that period, or the origins, premises, logic, and implied conclusions of national-socialist ideology and policies, both domestic and foreign? Without open and public discussion and debate through mention of Hitler’s name and unrestricted access to and use of his papers, speeches, and all other related documents, from whom would the world know why and what the Nazi system had done? 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.

4. Woodbridge's Miss Virginia USA helps kick off Women Veterans Week
Woodbridge’s Miss Virginia USA Courtney Lynn Smits joined Gov. Ralph Northam and other officials to congratulate the state’s women veterans at a ceremony Monday at the Capitol. Staff at the Virginia Department of Veterans Services were hoping at least a dozen women veterans would show up for their inaugural ceremony of Women Veterans Week, but by the start of the ceremony it was a standing-room-only crowd. More than 60 women veterans filled the five rows of reserved seats before others filed in to stand behind them. Virginia Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs Carlos Hopkins, who graduated from The Citadel, elicited a good-natured laugh from the crowd before he introduced Northam, a graduate of VMI.

5. GAME CHANGER New high school club teams are blurring old gender barriers
Gender barriers have for so long defined high school volleyball and, more recently, rugby in South Carolina. Volleyball traditionally belongs to the girls in the fall while rugby is reserved for the boys in the spring. A couple club teams at Wando High School have begun to blur those perceived barriers though. Jonathan Togami is one of the best pole vaulters in the state. His father, Kreg, coached volleyball at N.C. State, The Citadel and Charleston Southern. His mother, Laura, won a state championship playing for Glover at Wando and later played at N.C. State, where she still holds the record for career kills. Jonathan has always wanted to play volleyball competitively. Now he’s an outside hitter for Wando and his parents are both volunteer coaches.

6. The Citadel’s Connolly Named SoCon Pitcher of the Week
The Citadel left hander Shane Connolly earned his second Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week honor after tossing a complete-game shutout against VMI last Saturday. The award was announced by the league office Monday afternoon. He becomes the first Bulldog pitcher to earn the conference’s weekly pitching honor twice in a season since JP Sears won the award three times in 2017. Connolly was honored after allowing just four singles in the complete-game victory over VMI on March 23. The sophomore gave up two hits in the second inning and then did not allow another hit until the seventh. He allowed the leadoff hitter to reach just twice, but got a double play to erase the base runner. The victory was the second complete-game shutout for Connolly this season. He is the only player in Division I with a pair of complete-game shutouts in 2019. In his first start of the season, Connolly allowed just three hits in a complete-game shutout against Delaware State. On the season, Connolly is 3-2 with a 1.25 ERA. He has given up just five earned runs in 36.0 innings.

Men’s tennis continue winning ways
East Carolina University athletics has had problems with producing winning teams during the 2018-2019 academic year. The East Carolina University men’s tennis team has not had that problem, as it has continued to play strong since the beginning of the year. The men’s tennis team (13-4) started off the year with a 5-0 undefeated mark in its first five games. The Pirates would lose, but then go on another five match winning streak to start the season 10-1 through the first 11 matches. Four of the seven wins the Pirates had at home were shutouts. ECU defeated the Citadel 7-0 on Jan. 21. The Pirates held George Mason University pointless in the 7-0 win they were able to get on Feb. 1 and finished off Appalachian State University 4-0 on Feb. 10.

1. Three Citadel companies earn special privileges during first ever Spring Regimental Tournament

After a grueling competition and a dramatic, last-minute tiebreaker, three cadet companies will get to enjoy special privileges after coming out on top. To break the tie for first place, the athletic officers from Kilo and Palmetto Battery faced off in a push-up competition. But in the end, Kilo Company came out on top. The competition was made up of multiple events, with only a handful of cadets participating in each challenge. Cadets who weren’t involved in the different events were required to take part in a two-mile run. The companies earned points, based on how well they performed in each event, and all those points were totaled to determine the company that earned first, second, and third place, overall.

1a. Historic Johns Island corridor provides window into SC African-American history

The whoosh of passing vehicles momentarily drowned out the soft, deep voice of Abraham “Bill” Jenkins as he leaned against a pile of concrete blocks. He had cautiously navigated the uneven earth and building remnants to stand inside the once-vital community center for African-Americans on Johns Island. At 90, he could still rattle off its history. The Progressive Club, where Jenkins stood, is part of a historic stretch of Johns Island, tucked away along a winding two-lane road surrounded by far-reaching oak trees and farmland. Efforts are underway to preserve the club, though they’re moving much more slowly than the nearby traffic. Even in its dilapidated state, the Progressive Club still serves as a civil rights symbol, as evidenced last week by the audience Jenkins had: Joy Bivins, chief curator of the International African American Museum; former Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, who brought along students from The Citadel; and other local residents and leaders. “Places like the Progressive Club, the space of Johns Island itself, become a laboratory for really uncovering history,” Bivins said.

2. Charleston RiverDogs planned big balloon stunt. Anti-plastic forces quickly popped idea
Everyone at the RiverDogs baseball game would launch a balloon. But the promotional stunt went over like a lead ... you get the idea. After some backlash Friday, the Charleston minor league baseball team walked back a stunt advertised as a balloon launch after concerns grew about the pollution factor. The concept just wasn’t going to fly, not with people becoming more aware of the health threats that plastic poses to marine animals. Some seven tons of plastic or rubber litter float in Charleston Harbor at any given time, according to research by The Citadel — from tire shreds to drink bottles. Collapsed balloons resemble jellyfish, and marine creatures such as sea turtles feed on jellies. Species from turtles to whales have washed up dead with their digestive systems choked by plastics.

2a. Lowcountry students encouraged to pursue aviation careers

On Friday, nearly 200 Lowcountry students attended an “Aviation Day” at the Charleston Executive Airport. Many of the students were a part of JROTC or ROTC programs at different schools like R. B. Stall High School, Fort Dorchester High School, The Citadel and Charleston Southern University. The non-profit encourages students, ages 15-25, to get interested and involved in the aviation industry. At the “Aviation Day” the students were able to talk to airline, Air Force and Coastal Guard pilots and event got to fly on local Discovery Flights around the Lowcountry. Christopher Will, Citadel professor and the president of the Lowcountry Aviation Association, said the day was a great opportunity for students. “Both the military and commercial sectors of aviation have a really significant pilot shortage that’s not going to be solved anytime soon," Will added. “And one of the things both commercial and military aviation leaders have done is reach out to new communities and bring new kids into the fold. A lot of kids grow up not knowing aviation is an option but anyone can be a pilot.”

3a. SC beer brand crafts ‘Chapter 2’ of its growth plan with New Belgium deal
The frothy South Carolina surf is an apt metaphor for a startup beer brand with high hopes. A Charleston-area company that launched its first and only lager less than two years ago is on the verge of extending its distribution reach to 20 states from five under a deal with one of the nation’s biggest craft beer companies. The Sullivan’s Island-based owners of Island Coastal Lager announced their agreement with New Belgium Brewing about 10 day ago. Financial terms were not disclosed. Starting this month, New Belgium will handle all brewing and distribution for the niche beer, which was founded by and is still controlled by Brandon Perry and Scott Hansen. “We had already said from the get-go that Brandon and I would have to find ... a larger company to support our efforts ... on the production capacity side, the quality assurance side, and the forecasting and logistics side,” said Hansen, a 1994 graduate of The Citadel.

4. In SC stop, 2020 Democrat Beto O’Rourke confronts challenge of courting black voters
Beto O’Rourke came to South Carolina pitching his support for the African-American community, but one exchange highlighted the challenge he faces in the Palmetto State’s 2020 Democratic primary. At a campaign stop at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, a black voter asked a pointed question for the Texas Democrat seeking the party’s presidential nomination. “If you’re not for reparations, why should I vote for you?” he asked. O’Rourke managed a reply that sidestepped the hot-button issue of reparations for slavery. He instead highlighted his support for fixing racial inequities in public education and eliminating “racist voter ID laws.” Scott Buchanan, a political scientist at The Citadel, sees limited potential if O’Rourke’s appeal is limited to more affluent white voters. “That might play better in the Charleston area than it will in Orangeburg or Allendale,” Buchanan said. “Could Joe have won in the 3rd or 4th District? Not likely.”

6. Constitution Sailors Wrap-Up Charleston Navy Week
Sailors assigned to USS Constitution participated in a Navy Office of Community Outreach Navy Week in Charleston, S.C. March 11 – March 17. The primary purpose of the Navy Week program is to increase the public’s awareness of the Navy by presenting the Navy to Americans who live in cities that normally do not have a significant naval presence. Charleston Navy Week showcased the mission, capabilities and achievements of the U.S. Navy and provided residents the opportunity to meet with active-duty Sailors firsthand. Constitution Sailors kicked off their participation with a historical discussion of ‘Old Ironsides’ at James Island Elementary School. Additionally, Sailors presented the colors during the Citadel Bulldogs vs. University of South Carolina and the Charleston Southern University vs. College of Charleston baseball games, and during Charleston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Later in the week, Constitution Sailors spent time at the Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center and USS Yorktown, a decommissioned, World War II Essex-class aircraft carrier that now serves a museum. They also participated in a house build with Charleston Habitat for Humanity.

7. Judkins’ RBI in 10th lifts Citadel to series win

Designated hitter Andrew Judkins delivered a walk-off single up the middle in the bottom of the 10th inning to give The Citadel a 3-2 victory over VMI on Sunday afternoon at Riley Park. VMI (5-18, 1-2 Southern Conference) knotted the game at 2 with two outs in the ninth inning on a Callen Nuccio double to right field. In the bottom of the 10th, Ben Peden started the Bulldogs’ winning rally with an infield single to the right side. After a fielder’s choice, Will Bastian walked to put two on with one out. Judkins followed by hitting a 2-2 pitch through the middle for the game-winning hit. The Bulldogs (9-15, 2-1) took the series 2-1 after dropping the opener on Friday.

Seeded 22nd at 197 pounds, Root lost by a 1-0 decision to 11th-seeded Christian Brunner of Purdue during the first session. Brunner recorded the lone point of the match by picking up an escape in the second round. Root was close to tallying a takedown in the first period but couldn't get the two points.

1. A conversation about leadership

Each year cadets, visiting student delegates, Citadel faculty and leaders from many areas of society join on campus to explore what principled leadership looks like across a range of vocations. They come together for two days of intensive leadership learning during the annual Principled Leadership Symposium held by The Citadel’s Krause Center. In keeping with the 2019 symposium theme of Empowering Others & Building Bridges, Regimental Public Affairs Officer Logan Miller invited the President of The Citadel, Gen. Glenn M. Walters, to share his thoughts about leadership. Walters joined the college as president only five months earlier, and Miller wanted to help cadets and students to learn a little more about their president.

Here is that conversation with the 1979 alumnus who is now president.

2. As 2020 race starts in SC, can Beto O’Rourke hit the same sweet spot he did in 2018?
He almost ousted from office Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a top target of Democrats’ ire. He raised $6 million in his first 24 hours of running for president. And he’s capturing the attention of media and haters alike — from opposition articles criticizing his youthful indiscretions to a high-gloss spread in Vanity Fair timed with his announcing his campaign. Beto O’Rourke will touch down in South Carolina on Friday for his first presidential campaign swing through the Palmetto State. Knotts also said one factor could play to O’Rourke’s favor. “One thing that’s unique in South Carolina is that, without a Republican primary, you could see voters turn out in Mount Pleasant, Lexington, suburban Greenville, who don’t normally vote in Democratic primaries,” Knotts said. But Scott Buchanan, a political scientist at The Citadel, sees limited potential if O’Rourke’s appeal is limited to more upscale white voters. “That might play better in the Charleston area than it will in Orangeburg or Allendale,” Buchanan said. “Could Joe have won in the 3rd or 4th District? Not likely.”

4. Harrell embraces culture as new KSU defensive coordinator
New Kennesaw State defensive coordinator Blake Harrell said the culture the Owls had developed was a big reason he wanted to join the program. “The type of people on the staff are the ones that are going to push you,” Harrell said. “They are going to make you a better coach.” Considering Harrell came from The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, South Carolina, it is a strong statement to make. Last season, The Citadel held five opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards and led the Southern Conference in first-down defense, ranking 35th in the FCS. Newberry liked to stress the defense getting three turnovers per game, and that was an area in which that Harrell’s defenses thrived. The Citadel forced a combined 83 turnovers over the last four years, including 31 in 2015 to rank third in the FCS. During that time, the Bulldogs won back-to-back Southern Conference championships and earned the No. 6 seed in the 2016 FCS playoffs.

The VMI baseball team opens Southern Conference play this weekend at The Citadel, with single games Friday (6 p.m.), Saturday (2 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m.). The Keydets finished the conference slate 12-12 in 2018, finishing fourth in the league. VMI took two of three from the Bulldogs in Lexington, Va. last spring, winning the two contests by a combined score of 24-7. Projected Sunday starter Zak Kent was named the Southern Conference’s Pitcher of the Week for the week of March 18. He tied a school record last Sunday as the VMI baseball team defeated visiting Lehigh University 11-1 in non-conference play. The junior right-hander struck out 15 batters, tying the program record for strikeouts in a single game in the aluminum bat era (a mark set in 1998). Kent is tied for ninth in D1 with 46 strikeouts and tied for eighth with one complete game. He is tied for 18th in strikeouts per nine innings (13.50). For the season, Kent has a 2-2 record with a 4.11 ERA and opponents are hitting just .174 against him. The Citadel (7-14 this season) owns an 82-33 all-time series record against VMI (4-16 in 2019).

Rico Gabriel couldn’t stop shaking as he stepped through the ropes and into the boxing ring. Neither could his girlfriend, Mary Ann Koller, as she did the same. Gabriel and Koller, both Citadel graduates, have been sparring for months at American Top Team Lowcountry in Charleston. But at a Golden Gloves boxing tournament in Greer last month, both made their debuts in an official amateur boxing event. “My adrenaline was worked up hours before the fight,” Gabriel remembered. “It’s so much different when there’s a crowd watching.” Both fighters rose to the challenge, said Isaac Betancourt-Sabillon, their coach at ATT Lowcountry. Gabriel beat his opponent in the 141-pound division. His victory in the state tournament, which is sanctioned by USA Boxing, earned him a bid to the regionals next month in Knoxville.

Lorain High School Junior ROTC cadets received awards for strong performances in sports, academics and military drill from recent weeks. Col. Tarn Warren and Sgt. First Class Christopher Simon presented the honors March 20 in a ceremony at the High School. The event was a precursor to the JROTC’s annual award ceremony in April. But the early recognition was timely for the program’s Drill, Academic and Raider teams, Simon said. The group also heard from Lorain High senior Cadet Samuel Dandrea, a senior who was accepted to the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. Dandrea plans to study history and later serve in the Marine Corps, like his older brother, Marcus, who now lives in Virginia. Dandrea thanked his commanding instructors and fellow cadets, along with his teachers and the school administrators. “It wouldn’t be possible without this program or without the people in this school,” he said. “I’m really thankful for all of you.” It was cool to see some of the young cadets get their first medals, he said. Dandrea added he will return to visit.

2. South Carolina Politics Consider A Ban On Plastic’s Ban
Something to know before visiting the Statehouse in Columbia; water from the drinking fountain contains microplastics. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration defines the substance as any plastic debris smaller than 5 mm (about the size of sesame seed, they say). Dr. John Weinstein, Chair of the Biology Department and Professor of Physiology at The Citadel said during a phone call on March 8, he was probably the only person who wasn’t surprised by the findings in a study he administered for The Citadel. “What around us isn’t made of synthetic materials? Everything is wrapped in plastic. Tires are made of rubber and plastic elastomers that deposit on roads and wash into Charleston harbor with every rain… [Microplastics] are everywhere we’ve ever looked; in the air, Acrtic ice, on mountain tops, beer, table salt and in water,” said Weinstein. Weinstein first started looking in earnest when studying the effects of microplastics in Charleston’s own back yard was added to his bailiwick in 2013.

3. Slow News, the documentary

In recent years, without knowing each other and without necessarily having a common philosophical reasoning at the base, journalists and journalists all over the world have created slow journalism projects thinking about the sustainability of their work, about community building and the need get out of the chaotic and meaningless flow of a journalism in full crisis. Some of their names are Peter Laufer , Lea Korsgaard , Rob Orchard , Jennifer Rauch , John De Mauro , Frédéric Martel , Helen Boaden , Alison T. Smith . And their are projects of all kinds: books, printed magazines, digital publications, ebooks, podcasts, newsletters or even simply declarations of intent and hope. It is the story of the birth of an international movement of free and autonomous journalists, a story that began years ago and is still taking place. A story that, since December 1916, together with IK Produzioni, we decided that it had to be told. This is how the documentary project was born. For now it's called Slow News. A documentary and it is in this moment (autumn-winter 2018) is in production phase.

Citadel professor, Dr. Alison Smith, was interviewed in and around Trento, Italy, as part of a forthcoming documentary on the Slow News movement. The article is in Italian, and contains a link to a Huffington Post article written by Dr. Smith.

4. Clarity on Diversity and Pluralism

Freedom and the free society are once again under direct attack by those who espouse far-greater degrees of government control over people’s lives. Wrapping themselves in the cloak of progressivism, “social justice,” and liberation from oppression and discrimination, they use a lexicon of words that are designed to reflect their view of and desires for the world: diversity, inclusiveness, participatory democracy, pluralism, and peace. But in reality, the only social system able to deliver on these goals is free market liberalism. To understand this, it is necessary to begin with first principles about human beings and the nature and workings of the social world. Social-democratic activists have as their starting premise the idea that society is composed of elementary groups or collectives, with these defining and determining the facts and fate of everyone in society.

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.

1c. Tire particles found in Charleston waterways, researchers say
From bags to bottles, cars and clothing, plastic is truly the fabric of our lives. Most people see some form of plastic pollution every day like water bottles or single-use straws, but it’s the plastic we don’t see that’s a larger concern. About five years ago, researchers at the Citadel and College of Charleston began looking into microplastics around the Charleston Harbor and made a new discovery. Dr. John Weinstein, head of the biology department at the Citadel, leads the research. Weinstein said from that study, they found two interesting things. “We found Daniel Island had some of the highest levels that were being reported and we were also finding that the majority of the particles that were being reported were black particles,” said Weinstein. “We did chemistry on them and we found that they are composed of carbon-black and polybutadiene which are charred components of tires.”

Gen. Glenn M. Walters, (Ret.) USMC, a member of The Citadel Class of 1979, assumed his responsibilities as President of The Citadel in October 2018. Forty-three years ago, he reported to the college for matriculation. “I was a 128-pound skinny little thing when I got down here. When I graduated, I was 170 pounds. I was playing lacrosse, something I had never done. I was commissioned into the Marine Corps, and I had a degree in electrical engineering,” Walters recalled. At the age of 18, he had already traveled the world—Pakistan, Cyprus, Greece, India, Japan—yet it was at the Military College of South Carolina that he put down roots and began the transformation from a boy who dreamed of becoming a military officer to a young Marine destined for success.

3. We Are Still SCIENCE TOWN, USA
A new location, The Citadel, and a new format, Regionals and State, did not deter the budding scientists from their appointed round with greatness. Having fewer than twenty students (for the first time in well over a decade) on the team did not dim their commitment or pursuit of excellence. Science Olympiad is a marathon, not a sprint, and most students just don’t have the intestinal fortitude or ability to defer gratification for such high stakes, mental marathons. Not these CMS students! Not this CMS team! Not this time! Surrounded by an awesome array of coaches and mentors, this year’s team excelled in an unprecedented fashion.

As UNG celebrates Women's History Month in March, it also holds the distinction of being the first senior military college in the nation to accept women into the Corps of Cadets. On Sept. 16, 1973, four days ahead of Virginia Tech, three women entered UNG's Corps: Jean Raines, Susan Harris and Janet Walls. Norwich and Texas A&M accepted women in their Corps in 1974, while the Citadel and VMI followed in 1995 and 1997, respectively, after court challenges.

2. At The Citadel there is a college Democrats group. It’s small but growing.
How’s this for overwhelming force: The Republican Society at The Citadel has more than 750 active members, and bills itself as the largest Republican club in the South. The Citadel’s College Democrats? It has 50 members — or barely enough to defend a voting precinct. But the more important trend is that number has grown from just two interested cadets before the club got its start in September. Heading into 2020, the minority of Democratic Party-aligned students on this conservative Charleston campus have their sights set on raising their profile. Already some of their members have been on-hand to welcome the early visiting 2020 White House hopefuls, U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker among them.

6. 9 Iconic Charleston Experiences
Stand in Formation at a Citadel Parade If all you see of the Citadel military college are the cadets jogging around town in their blue T-shirts, you’re missing a key thread of Charleston’s fabric. Many of South Carolina’s most powerful players are Citadel graduates who share a unique camaraderie forged by four years of studying (and suffering) together. When college is in session, the students parade every Friday afternoon at 3:45 on Summerall Field at the school’s center (what other colleges would call a “quad”). You’ll hear barking commanding officers and troops’ rhythmic chanting as they march and handle their (fake) guns in unison. It’s a grand tradition and it’s free to the public. Arrive by 3:15 to park and secure a good view. (Note the parade does not take place if the weather’s bad.)

7. George Koval: Atomic Spy Unmasked
What can be gleaned so far—from Western and Soviet archives, FBI documents, current scholarship and interviews with Koval's surviving former colleagues in the United States and his relatives in Russia—is that he was perfectly positioned to steal information about one of the most crucial parts of the bomb, the device that initiates the nuclear reaction. This required not only careful planning, rigorous training and brazen lying, but also astounding turns of luck. And in contrast to the known KGB spies, Haynes notes, "Koval was a trained agent, not an American civilian. He was that rarity, which you see a lot in fiction but rarely in real life—a sleeper agent. A penetration agent. A professional officer." After basic training at Fort Dix, New Jersey, Private Koval was sent to the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, to join the 3410th Specialized Training and Reassignment Unit. And on August 11 of that year he was admitted to a new unit, the Army Specialized Training Program (ASTP). One of his colleagues there, Duane Weise, believes Koval scored particularly high on the Army's analog to the IQ test. The move marked Koval's first step toward the nation's nuclear labs.

Another election cycle has begun, even though it is less than a half a year since the November 2018 congressional elections. Donald Trump seems unlikely to face a serious challenger for his re-nomination as the Republican candidate for president (unless explosive revelations place his public standing in serious doubt in the coming months). But the Democratic field already has well over a dozen declared serious candidates, each one of them eager to be chosen as Trump’s opponent for the presidency of the United States in the autumn of 2020. 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.

8. The good and bad of South Carolina baseball as Gamecocks begin SEC play

A game they led 7-0 after two innings and 9-1 after their half of the sixth was won by a final score of 10-9. But it was won. Last year, maybe that game isn’t. And as much as the No. 20 South Carolina baseball team has some significant issues to address as it begins SEC play this weekend, the resolve of the ballclub (and a lineup that’s second in the country in hitting home runs) is what the Gamecocks are counting on. USC nearly gave The Citadel the game Tuesday at Riley Park, but eked out the one-run victory after leading by eight runs. The Gamecocks, who host No. 15 Georgia in a three-game series beginning Friday, are 14-3 this season, two wins ahead of where they were last year at this time.

1. Citadel hosts traveling art exhibit raising awareness of veteran suicide

Scott LoBaido is traveling along the coast to honor veterans who put their lives on the line for our country. He's stopping in all 13 original colonies, bringing awareness to the high rate of veteran suicides in the US. "It's a very delicate subject. I will admit, I'm not a doctor, I'm not a psychiatrist," LoBaido says. "I don't know how to cure this, but I know how to bring attention to it, and that's why i'm taking time to do this." According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 22 veterans die from suicide each day in the United States. An traveling art exhibit called the '22-13' is on display at the Citadel campus right now. It's made of 22 boots, 22 small statues, and an empty heart made from the number 22. LoBaido says the empty heart represents the emptiness of those who lost a loved veteran. Viewing is free to the public, and is located at the entrance of the Citadel's campus. LoBaido started the tour in Georgia, and will continue traveling through the original 13 colonies, ultimately ending in New Hampshire.

3. Is Nikki Haley Nixing Nancy Mace?

South Carolina state representative Nancy Mace has a lot going for her in the upcoming race for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district. In addition to her obvious attractiveness and compelling personal narrative (Mace is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, a formerly all-male military academy), the 41-year-old Berkeley County native has roots in multiple GOP/ GOP-leaning constituencies. She was one of the original “First in the South” 2016 hires of U.S. president Donald Trump, and prior to that she worked on behalf of former U.S. congressman Ron Paul. And in a move that no doubt appeals to moderate Republicans, Mace has staked herself out on the issue of offshore drilling – which is ultimately what drove Democratic congressman Joe Cunningham to his upset victory last fall. One factor working against her aspirations? Former South Carolina governor and ex-U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, Haley – a likely future presidential candidate – has made it abundantly clear that Mace is unacceptable in her eyes as a candidate for the first district.

4. Summerville stars shine as No. 20 USC holds off The Citadel

Summerville’s Daniel Lloyd made his first college start as a South Carolina pitcher on Tuesday night at Riley Park, and left the game with a 7-run lead. But Lloyd’s start seemed like ancient history by the time No. 20 USC held off a Citadel rally to take a a 10-9 victory over the Bulldogs before 3,923 fans. Fellow Green Wave product T.J. Hopkins drove in two runs and scored two more for the 14-3 Gamecocks, who also got four RBI from catcher Luke Berryhill. “I saw a Citadel team that didn’t give up and took a lot of really good at-bats tonight,” said USC coach Mark Kingston. “I didn’t think our pitchers competed very well in the middle of the game.”

1. A new party gets started at The Citadel
One of The Citadel’s newest clubs for cadets isn’t quite a year old. But the cadets involved with The Citadel College Democrats (CCD) club have spent that time making a big impact on the community and campus. Members have already logged nearly 100 hours working on state and federal campaigns, volunteering in local party events, and advocating for legislation. They also had the opportunity to meet Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Kamala Harris, Rep. Joe Cunningham, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and other national figures. During the first general meeting of the semester, CCD hosted S.C. Sen. Marlon Kimpson and two members of the Charleston Peninsula Democrats. In February, members of CCD participated in a first-of-its-kind, tri-partisan debate. Nine cadets participated in the debate, hosted by The Brigadier, the campus newspaper. Delegates from the cadet Democrat, Libertarian and Republican clubs all came together to talk in a civilized and respectful forum.

2. Exhibit to honor veterans opens at Citadel
A traveling art installation brings awareness about veteran suicides rates. The exhibit opens March 12 and will be on display through March 13 at the Citadel campus, near Daniel Library. The exhibit is free and open to public. Artist Scott LoBaido will erect the special exhibit. The statue will be made of two "2s" facing each other, creating an empty heart in the center. It will be accompanied by 22 life-size figures and 22 pairs of empty boots lit with 22 battery-operated candles. The number 22 is used because The Department of Veterans Affairs says 22 veterans die by suicide each day. The Citadel will be the second stop of the tour, which starts in Georgia and travels up through 12 other states.

5. FBI Deputy Director, Special Agent in Charge of Boston Division Discuss Bureau’s Cyber Concentration, Recruiting Efforts
Five years ago, the FBI put out a release noting that the most sought-after recruits possessed a very 21st century skillset: cyber expertise. One of the institutions that jumped at the opportunity was Boston College, and now the University can lay claim to the Woods College of Advancing Studies’ masters program in Cybersecurity Policy and Governance and the annual Cyber Security Conference. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich said that the younger generation emerging from universities is exactly what the FBI needs at the moment. Bowdich said that adding the expertise that younger generations have gained, especially in the cyber field, is vital to keeping the FBI ahead of the curve. Bowdich added that he was recently at The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, as a part of a national partnership to speak to a cyber symposium similar to the one BC puts on every year. By engaging in discussions with universities about threat intelligence, Bowdich said he believes that colleges can better protect themselves from the predators that are present both domestically and internationally online.

9. 13 notable teams who fell short in their NCAA conference tournaments

Going home so soon? It happens, especially the past week. While the big name conference tournaments now get the floor, it’s the other leagues where NCAA tournament hopes steadily fall away, like leaves off the trees back in November. Look at some of the victims from one week. Loyola Chicago is gone. Only 334 days after the Ramblers played in the Final Four and the college basketball world could not get enough of Sister Jean, they shot under 36 percent and lost 53-51 to Bradley in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. The close ones, they won last March. Marques Townes, Clayton Custer and Cameron Krutwig – three mainstays of the Final Four run -- combined for only 23 points. “We got a taste of it last year. We had a goal, and we didn’t reach it,” Custer said. “And that hurts a lot.” St. Francis Brooklyn, William & Mary, Army and The Citadel are all gone. They’re the last four original Division I schools to never play in the NCAA Tournament, and it didn’t take long to find out none of them would be graduating from that club soon. Combined, they went 0-4 in their league tournaments. That included St. Francis losing 69-65 in overtime to Robert Morris after leading 37-22 at halftime in the Northeast . . . William & Mary up 14 at halftime but being ousted by Delaware 85-79 in the Colonial . . . and Army holding the nation’s best 3-point shooting team – Lehigh – to 4-for-23 from behind the arc, but still losing 75-70 in the Patriot League. Samford briskly sent The Citadel home in the Southern 100-71. If it’s any consolation for the Bulldogs, and all the others above, they'll have lots of company.

2. Judge sentences man convicted in connection with wife’s disappearance to 10 years
A judge sentenced the man who was convicted of obstruction of justice in connection with the disappearance of his wife to the maximum sentence Friday. Bob McCaffrey, whose wife, Gayle, went missing from their West Ashley home in March 2012, received a 10-year sentence. The sentence came shortly after a jury convicted him on the obstruction charge. A jury spent between 15 and 20 minutes deliberating McCaffrey’s fate Friday afternoon. The charge was filed against him because investigators said he lied to them about his wife’s disappearance and refused to assist them in the search for her. Gayle McCaffrey’s family members said they are happy with the verdict and the sentence, but say they won’t have full closure until her body is found. The family and investigators believe Bob McCaffrey killed his wife. Testimony in the case wrapped up Thursday. Gayle McCaffrey’s sister, Helen Banach, spoke about the day she received a call about her sister’s disappearance. “Gayle will never disappear. She will never leave her children," Banach said in her testimony. Banach told jurors she did not believe her sister would write such a letter. She also testified that she went to The Citadel where Gayle McCaffrey worked to see if she showed up for work, but McCaffrey did not.

3. Letter: Border apprehension measure illegal crossings
Border control evokes strong emotions. I know because I have taught a class on immigration to more than 300 Citadel students over the last seven years. The course fills up in the blink of an eye, even though the effects of immigration policy are felt less keenly in this region than in others with larger Latino populations. Historian John Higham, in his canonical studies of Americans’ reactions to immigrants, noted that this issue arouses the “passions” and “concerns” of Americans at irregular intervals. I have spent 22 years studying Latin America, and I helped bring the president of the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations and another immigration expert to Charleston to talk on this topic because I think that public engagement and the free exchange of ideas on immigration is especially important. -Brian Norris, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Criminal Justice Department, The Citadel

4. Seeing more tourists around town? Charleston’s March visitor bump by the numbers
Tourism in Charleston is now a year-round business, but the visitor industry really gets kicked into high gear in March, when visitor volume takes its largest leap by far. According to data collected by the College of Charleston, the largest increase in hotel room nights sold — the best monthly indicator of tourism traffic since visitor counts are only broken down annually — is between February and March. Over the last three years, there was, on average, about a 30 percent swing between those months. Bolstered by a combination of spring warmth, local blooms and the annual Charleston Wine + Food Festival in Marion Square, the transition to March well outpaces other month-to-month fluctuations throughout the year. Other March events like the Citadel Corps Day, Charleston Fashion Week, and the Festival of Houses and Gardens also give the month on edge on others, said Daniel Guttentag, director of CofC’s Office of Tourism Analysis.

4b. Tommy Barton column: Godspeed to three good gentlemen
Politicians didn’t make America great. Americans like Henry Garlington and his ancestors did. Garlington, a World War II veteran who died Feb. 23 at the age of 97, came from a long line of remarkable military men who put their country before self. His passing marked the loss of another member of America’s Greatest Generation who served with honor and bravery. We can’t say “thank you” enough to members of this exclusive, fast-dwindling club. Henry Garlington and his twin brother Cresswell Jr., were born in Paris between wars. Both attended The Citadel. They left school early to attend to active duty. Cresswell, who entered the infantry, was killed in battle and was buried in Europe with his fellow troops. Henry Garlington took the air route and was assigned to a P-40 fighter (a “Flying Tiger”). After his single-engine, single-seat plane, named “Betty,” was shot down near Rome, Garlington was sent to Stalag Luft III. This POW camp was the site of the Great Escape before he arrived. He remained a POW until his camp was liberated by Gen. George Patton’s troops.

No. 7 Samford cruised to a 100-71 win over No. 10 The Citadel in the Ingles Southern Conference Championships presented by General Shale first round Friday. Samford broke it open midway through the first half and never looked back. Kaiden Rice pulled Citadel within two, 24-22, with a little more than 11 minutes to go in the first. Back-to-back scores from Brandon Austin, a 3-pointer, and Robert Allen pushed the lead to seven. Zane Najdawi scores sandwiched a Deandre Thomas three for a six-point Samford advantage. The Citadel played without leading scorer Lew Stallworth. He averaged 20.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game this year. He was ruled ineligible due to a class issue. Stallworth was a second-team All-SoCon performer.- Samford’s 100 points is the first time a SoCon team topped the century mark in a tourney game since ETSU did in the 1991 championship game with a 101-82 victory over Appalachian State on March 3.

3. China's Dangerous Proposal for a New International Order
For the last seven decades the world, it is said, has been based on a liberal international order. But two questions arise what is liberal internationalism, and what is offered as its alternative in the world today? In part I of this two-part article I discuss the latter question first. China has proposed a new international order to replace and offer as a counter-weight to the current global system. But what is it politically and economically based on? Its political premise, I argue, is state-supremacy authoritarianism built on “harmony” and “solidarity.” The first means no dissent against or opposition to the ruling political power, in China’s case the communist party. The second means eliminating or manipulating many elements of civil society, especially religion or ethic separatism, that would threaten the uniformity of all social relationships as dictated and controlled by the state. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina.

4. How a $1 million investment helped fuel rise of SoCon basketball
Shortly after he was hired at The Citadel in March 2015, coach Duggar Baucom attended a meeting with Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino. The subject — the state of SoCon basketball, and what to do about it. “He was dejected,” Baucom said of the commissioner. “He said, ‘Our league is ranked 28th in the country. It’s got to be better.’” Four years later — and five years after the league bottomed out at 30th out of 32 NCAA Division I conferences in 2013-14 — the SoCon is riding high as the league tournament opens Friday in Asheville, N.C. Led by regular-season champion Wofford, the SoCon is ranked as high as 10th out of 32 Division I leagues in the country in RPI. And the SoCon is positioned to earn its first ever at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

3. The Global Economy Desperately Needs Freedom
How many bureaucrats are there in the world? The global population currently numbers more than 7.5 billion people. Out of that number it is estimated that the global labor force equals almost 3.5 billion, or a half a billion less than half of all the people on the planet. While it varies very greatly from one country to another, a rough estimate of how many government bureaucrats there are is around 15 percent of the global labor force, or around 525 million people, or about 7 percent of everyone living on the planet. Now, 525 million people is almost equal to everyone living in the United States, Germany, France, and Spain combined. This is the number of government employees in some way responsible for, supporting, or connected with setting, overseeing, and enforcing all of those laws, regulations, and redistributive policies determining how the remaining 6.9 billion people on this earth shall live and work.

Q&A: Mike Houston on returning to his home state to rebuild East Carolina
Mike Houston is a North Carolina guy. He grew up in the state, played at Mars Hill University and began his coaching career in the North Carolina high school ranks. So when the head coaching job at East Carolina was available, he jumped at the opportunity to return to the state. He described stepping off the plane with his family upon his arrival and feeling back home. Houston spent the past three years at James Madison in Virginia, where he went 37-6 and won the 2016 FCS national championship. That came after two years as the head coach at The Citadel in South Carolina and three years as the head coach at Lenoir-Rhyne in North Carolina, including an appearance in the 2013 Division II national championship game. Houston had been in deep talks with Charlotte about its head coaching job, but when word got out publicly while JMU was in the FCS playoffs, Houston wasn’t happy. East Carolina then fired Scottie Montgomery before the final game.

4. Liberal Internationalism: True and False, Part 1
For more than the seventy years of the post–World War II era, the prevailing global order in the West was and has been called “liberal internationalism.” It has had two components, a political one and an economic one: “democracy” and “capitalism.” Both are being challenged at the present time in various parts of the world, and have led to the idea of a “crisis of democracy” and a “crisis of the liberal economic order.” In their place have been proposed or implemented alternative authoritarian systems of government control and direction over both political and economic life. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel. He was formerly professor of Economics at Northwood University, president of The Foundation for Economic Education (2003–2008), was the Ludwig von Mises Professor of Economics at Hillsdale College (1988–2003) in Hillsdale, Michigan, and served as vice president of academic affairs for The Future of Freedom Foundation (1989–2003).

5. South Carolina leaves The Citadel all Shook up

If it was an audition, he won. South Carolina, seeking a stabilized pitching rotation after top gun Carmen Mlodzinski broke his foot against Clemson, got a career-high 6 1-3 innings and 12 strikeouts from sophomore T.J. Shook Tuesday as the No. 20 Gamecocks crushed The Citadel 9-0. It’s too quick a turnaround for Shook to pitch against Valparaiso in this weekend’s series, but for the following weekend’s SEC opener against No. 15 Georgia? He didn’t hurt his cause. “Maybe, but for the time being, we need to solidify the midweek spot. But he obviously puts himself in the conversation,” coach Mark Kingston said. “When you strike out 12 guys on one hit in six-plus innings, you’re in the conversation.” Shook entered with an ERA of 8.31 and was almost immediately in trouble. He walked the first two batters of the second inning and was spiking all kinds of pitches that catcher Luke Berryhill couldn’t block.

He followed that up by surrendering just one run on six hits and seven strikeouts over 7.0 innings against No. 17 Michigan. The effort against the Wolverines earned Merrit SoCon Pitcher of the Week honors.

1a. Letter: Citadel and hazing
Citadel President Gen. Glenn Walters, Commandant Navy Capt. Geno Paluso and The Citadel Board of Visitors are to be congratulated for their efforts to “curb hazing and improve leadership training” as described Feb. 23 in the Post and Courier story headlined, “Citadel alters company tradition.” As a 1963 Citadel graduate with over 20 years of active duty as an infantry officer, a Citadel staff member for 25 years and a member of the College’s Board of Visitors for five years, I am proud of the strides my alma mater has taken on many difficult issues. It had to admit women, and it did; it had to put Dixie and the Confederate flag in their proper contexts, and it did; it had to rewrite its regulations on haircuts for men and women, and it did. Those changes made The Citadel a better place. Now it’s time to take on hazing. Those who want the “hazing culture” to continue should be aware that inflicting physical harm on a subordinate is not only prohibited by Citadel regulations but punishable by law. A few years ago, I had a chance to talk with a man who had a Ph.D. in behavioral science about how to change an organization’s culture. He said there were three ways: you change the people, you change the people, then you change the people. Gen. Walters, Capt. Paluso and The Citadel Board of Visitors are doing just that by reassigning third-class cadets. -Ben Legare

2. Advisor corner: The questions prehealth advisors wish their students would ask
Citadel professor Sarah Imam, M.D., featured in article answering questions for students applying to medical school. From taking coursework to gaining experience, preparing for the MCAT® exam, crafting a personal statement, and interviewing, there is a lot that goes into applying to medical school. Whether you are applying this cycle or just deciding that you are interested in pursuing a career in medicine, it is important to ask questions throughout the process and ask for help. People such as a prehealth advisor, a mentor, or a faculty member can address many of your questions and alleviate concerns you may have to help you feel confident as you submit your application. But are you asking them the right questions? “What can I do to make the most of my shadowing experience?” Too many students shadow to just “check the box.” They don’t ask many questions and walk away with very little insight, and then are unable to express much about their experience during an interview. It’s important to not limit your shadowing experience to just what you observe. Ask questions at appropriate times. Treat each patient as a case study and try to understand the history and background of what you see. Why is the action that you are witnessing the best choice? Are there alternative choices? What is the expected outcome and is the patient expected to do anything specific to achieve it? Understanding what you see is far more important than just observing. Make sure you write notes about your experience and what you’ve learned so you don’t forget the details. - Sarah A. Imam, MD, Assistant Professor of Health Sciences, The Citadel, Military College of the South

3. Husband on trial for obstruction in disappearance of Charleston woman presumed dead
Shortly before his wife went missing in March 2012, Bob McCaffrey’s mistress broke off their affair. The fast-moving fling had the West Ashley man making frequent drives to the Upstate so he could see Brandy Lee, a woman he’d met at a bar on Valentine’s Day that year. But in early March, Lee said she cut it off with McCaffrey. She’d received a text from his wife, 36-year-old Gayle McCaffrey, telling her to stay away. His wife said they were going to save their marriage. In the parking lot of an Applebee’s, Lee said she told Bob McCaffrey their brief relationship was over. He tearfully asked her to give him a “couple of months,” she said. Then, the day after St. Patrick’s Day, Bob McCaffrey texted Lee saying his wife had left him and that he was going to get a “fresh start.” Nearly seven years later, Lee took the stand Monday in a Charleston County courtroom to testify about the details of her affair with Bob McCaffrey. It was the first day of McCaffrey’s trial for obstruction of justice in connection with his wife’s disappearance. The 47-year-old faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Gayle McCaffrey was a reserved and hardworking woman dedicated to her job at The Citadel, 9th Circuit Assistant Solicitor Jennifer Shealy said in court Monday. A devout Baptist, she was devoted to her husband and their children. Her relatives have said it wasn’t in her nature to abandon her family.

Stephen Evans, a Citadel graduate and native of Beaufort, S.C., will act as Navy Week hosts “We’ll conduct more than 80 events throughout the week,” said Lt. John Stevens, a Charleston native and the NAVCO Navy Week program manager. “Most of our events are targeted educational outreach in Charleston’s public schools, but we’ll have several events open to the public and a few community service initiatives with organizations like the Habitat for Humanity. “Our Navy Week hosts are each scheduled for three days of executive-level engagements with key leadership in the community,” Stevens added, “and they’ll participate in some of the public events as well.”

5. THE MOTHER OF ALL ARTICLES
The word “mother” is worthy of those kinds of thoughts and as we celebrate Women’s Month I would like to pay homage to those special women in our lives that played or are playing an extraordinary role. To be sure, motherhood truly defies comparison. I should think that during Women’s Month, every chaplain across the land should desire to write “The Mother of All Articles.” I do not know if you’ve noticed but mothers and chaplains have a great deal in common. I know that I don’t look like your mother but both chaplains and mothers commit their lives to trying to get people to do what they do not want to do in order that they might become what they have always wanted to become. Mothers are change agents and chaplains try to be. -Joe Molina CDR, UMSC / Chaplain to the Corps of Cadets

Every year, me and most of these teams arrive at this exact moment, where the conference tournaments begin and anything seems possible. The games happen, the wheel turns, and we start over. As long as the behemoth of American college sports functions, there will always be new Division I teams. And then teams like Army, William and Mary, The Citadel and St. Francis (NY), the Founding Fathers that have missed every NCAA Tournament going back to the first one, well, they are seemingly never going to leave. This concept is unlikely to ever end, at least in any meaningful way. Every year, there will always be someone writing or talking about the teams that have never made it in.

9. Carrying on a family tradition
Just a hunch … we’re guessing before Dalton Reeves took his first steps as a baby, he already had a bat, ball and glove in his cradle. Just take a gander at this lineage. Dalton’s father, Will played baseball at Lugoff-Elgin High School --- as a catcher/pitcher --- with the Kershaw County Post 17 American Legion team in the summers and then at Appalachian State University. Dalton’s uncle, the late Jay Reeves, also played at L-E --- as a pitcher/first baseman ---, for the P-17ers and then pitched at Presbyterian College. For good measure, the Reeves brothers also played tennis at L-E in the spring, along with baseball. If that is not enough of a baseball heritage, John Reeves, Dalton’s grandfather, played both baseball and football at The Citadel. Now would be a good time to tell you that Dalton Reeves signed to play lacrosse in college rather than going into the family “business.” Truth is, Dalton Reeves inked a National Letter of Intent to continuing playing baseball while pursuing his college degree at Erskine College.

1. Citadel yearbook photo of cadets in KKK robes creates lifetime of justifications, regret
In the fall of 1976, just after the United States celebrated its bicentennial and a young Citadel alum was elected mayor of Charleston on a platform of racial healing, 21 members of The Citadel’s Company T did something that continues to haunt them. Few, if any, had an inkling that their informal senior group yearbook photo would live in infamy rather than as the joke they intended. They certainly didn’t think their photo would linger as proof that the public military college’s fraught racial past wasn’t far in the past after all, and they had no clue it would factor into the discussion as the school confronted that past head-on. When the 1977 Sphinx yearbooks came out, Page 138 showed most seniors in Tango company posing in full Ku Klux Klan garb while encircling their one African-American classmate, who wore a fancy suit and a rope around his neck. After a Navy career, Horlbeck has returned to the school as a tactical officer for Fourth Battalion and Tango Company, a role that involves, teaching, advising and counseling cadets. Since his return, some have found the photo and asked him about it. Some knew he was among the cadets in it; others did not. Horlbeck said he tells them about the group dynamic and about his company’s failure to discuss the concept in greater depth.

6. 5 Roses, 2 women: An eternal connection
Two small-town women, who never met, moved to the big city with big dreams. Their stories would cross paths, altering the city’s landscape of southern charm, hospitality, and just a dash of Mayberry—lifting a thin veil of false security and creating fear among women for generations to come. And changing Atlanta forever. In 1965, newlywed bride, Mary Shotwell Little, vanished from Atlanta’s Lenox Square shopping center. About 18 months later, and just a few miles away, newly-engaged Diane Shields was found murdered in the trunk of her own car in 1967, alongside an East Point, Ga., dry cleaners and laundromat. Both women worked for the same bank. Both received seemingly distressing phone calls. Both received roses at work. On Sept. 29, 1964, Mary applies to be a volunteer “Gray Lady” with the DeKalb County American Red Cross—providing hostess-type and non-medical services to patients at Emory University Hospital. Subsequently, she volunteers as a Gray Lady a handful of times through December 1964, but abruptly quits after receiving “annoying, obscene” phone calls at the hospital. Two months later, Mary meets Roy Little Jr., a graduate of The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. He was a first lieutenant at Fort Benning’s medical branch—but was discharged from the Army earlier that month. The two are introduced by William McIntosh Fambrough, a fellow Citadel graduate and Mary’s ex-boyfriend.

6a. The Myth of Aggregate Demand and Supply
It has been more than 80 years since the beginning of the Keynesian revolution in economics with the publication of John Maynard Keynes’ The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money in 1936. During those eight decades many defenses and criticisms, restatements and refutations have appeared, some by many of the most prominent economists of the last century. Yet, untouched, it seems, is the continuing presumption that there is a macro-economy that can be easily inflated or deflated like a balloon through government monetary and fiscal policy. J. Bradford DeLong, a professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley, once more expressed this Keynesian view of the economy in a recent article titled “Debt Derangement Syndrome.” He argues that all the hue and cry over the growing U.S. national debt is misplaced. As long as interest rates are low so the cost of government borrowing is relatively cheap and as long as there are willing buyers of government bonds so debt is easily floated, there is really no need for policy makers, economists, or voters to be concerned with the national debt now going above $22 trillion. 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.

7b. Citadel football’s Remus Bulmer was 5 when dad went to prison. Now, they’ll be reunited.

Remus Bulmer was just 5 years old when his dad went to prison, sentenced to 22 years behind bars for selling drugs. His father, locked up at the Coleman Medium Federal Correctional Institution in Wildwood, Fla., never saw Remus play high school football. He wasn’t there as Remus grew into a standout running back, the district’s most valuable player at Ridge Point High School in the Houston area. He also missed out as Remus earned a scholarship to Sam Houston State, where the 5-foot-7, 185-pound athlete ran for 2,117 yards and 15 touchdowns in three-plus seasons, earning all-Southland Conference honors, making the all-academic team and earning a business degree. The elder Bulmer was still in jail in the fall, when Remus decided to leave Sam Houston State and transfer to The Citadel for his final college season. The full import of that decision became apparent this week, when Bulmer’s father was released from prison about four years ahead of schedule. That means his dad, also named Remus, will get to see him play football for the first time next season.

7c. Citadel spring football: Long day for Bulldogs’ double-duty duo

At 8:19 p.m. Friday night, The Citadel’s Ryan McCarthy ripped a two-run single to score the go-ahead runs in the Bulldogs’ baseball victory over North Alabama. Shortly after the baseball game ended at 8:53 p.m., McCarthy and teammate Lane Botkin — one of two Bulldogs doing double-duty for the football and baseball teams this spring — were back in their rooms, fast asleep. By 7 a.m. Saturday, they were back up and getting dressed out for The Citadel’s 11 a.m. spring football game. At 11:48 a.m., McCarthy launched a 52-yard touchdown pass to receiver Raleigh Webb, one of the highlight plays of the day at Johnson Hagood Stadium.

2. Handy shopping sacks or public nuisance? Plastic bags cause bitter political fight in SC

Originally published in The State

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.

The Kent State University baseball team (3-5) looks to continue its three-game winning streak, concluding its Southern road trip with a three-game series at Charlotte (4-4) this Friday through Sunday, March 1-3. The games will be played at Hayes Stadium and are scheduled for 3:00, 1:00 and 12:00 p.m., respectively. The Flashes have won three in a row heading into the weekend. Kent State started the 2019 campaign 0-5 against opponents that made deep post season runs in 2018, but have grabbed wins against Michigan State, Charleston Southern, and The Citadel since. The Kent State offense notched at least 10 hits in the last four games, including 10 hits against No. 20 Coastal Carolina and 14 hits in a win at The Citadel on Wednesday. Redshirt sophomore Ben Carew leads the Flashes with a .500 batting average, .591 slugging percentage, and a .522 on-base percentage. He has knocked a team-high 11 hits with two doubles and six RBIs, while junior Cam Touchette has added nine hits and 11 RBIs. While the bats have fired up over as the season has progressed, the Flashes have been patient at the plate, taking 30 free passes on the season. Walks were pivotal in Kent State's win over Michigan State as the Flashes collected a season-high free bases that led to big innings. Kent State also drew seven walks the last time out at The Citadel.
