Fifteen Richmond Senior High School students were recognized during a military signing ceremony on Wednesday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Agents have arrested a North Charleston man accused of stealing a College of Charleston student's transcript in order to get into graduate programs and land a job at Boeing.

According to SLED investigators, in May of 2018, Bell went to the registrar’s office at the College of Charleston and brought several documents including a sworn affidavit in order to change a student’s personal information to that of his own. Court documents state Bell also obtained a student’s College of Charleston’s identification number with the intent to fraudulently obtain the victim’s official College of Charleston academic transcript and undergraduate degree. SLED says Bell used the documents in an attempt to get into graduate programs at the Citadel and West Governor’s University, and get a job at Boeing.

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

Citadel linebacker Noah Dawkins got two invitations to try out at NFL rookie mini-camps in the last two weeks. The second one paid off, as the Cincinnati Bengals announced Saturday that they had signed Dawkins as a undrafted free agent. The Bengals also signed Temple wide receiver Ventell Bryant and Maine linebacker Sterling Sheffield, according to reports. Dawkins, 6-0 and 226 pounds, participated in the Seattle Seahawks’ rookie mini-camp two weeks ago. Dawkins had 66 tackles and 13½ tackles for loss for The Citadel as a senior and led the team with 5½ sacks. The All-Southern Conference pick also intercepted two passes and led the team in sacks for three straight seasons. At The Citadel’s pro day, Dawkins ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds despite tweaking his hamstring during the sprint. He had reportedly run a 4.37 the week before The Citadel’s pro day and made ESPN analyst Mel Kiper’s “big board” of 300 draft prospects before the NFL draft.

2. The Fallacy of a Government Shutdown, the Reality of Freedom Lost

Another partial federal government “shutdown” began on December 22, 2018. The impression from the media and other commentaries easily suggested that the political and economic sky was about to fall. Various government departments were closed and some government services were reduced. And the fear was fostered that soon masses of people would be dying in the streets or driven from their homes owing to the lack of government spending. The Democrats and Republicans, of course, all played the blame game by pointing the finger of responsibility to the other side for government’s not being able to fully do its presumed numerous necessary duties. Donald Trump insisted that it was all because the Democrats would not appropriate the $5.7 billion to build his wall along the southwestern border. The Democrats insisted they were ready to fund every government department through the end of the fiscal year in September 2019, except for the Department of Homeland Security, which has responsibility for border security; they were ready to pass a continuing resolution to fund Homeland Security into February of this year, and then talk about border barriers.

11. This mom of 6 went to night school for years, got her master's, then fulfilled her dream of becoming a cop

Jennifer Petrone says her lifelong dream was to become a police officer, even if it seemed out of reach for a long time. However, after years of hard work and late nights, the low-country South Carolina mother of six has made that dream a reality. Now serving as a police officer for the city of Beaufort, South Carolina, but before landing that coveted job, she spent years working on two different degrees and a certificate at night school. Petrone recently graduated with a Master of Arts in Social Science from the graduate college at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, according to a news release from the institution. While the Charleston-based college has been known for its full-time undergraduate corps of cadets, it also offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs for non-cadet students via evening classes.

Like the carnival side shows at the circus, the candidates for the Democratic party nomination — do I even need to name the more than 20 of them? — are all standing in front of their respective campaign tents trying to attract the potential voter onlookers to join them inside, hope for that campaign contribution and support during the primaries so they will enter the center ring of the political circus big top and face Mr. Congeniality, Donald Trump, come November 2020. The prize? Long term, to occupy for four years that most famous public-housing project in the United States: the White House. Short term, to collect as many donations as possible that can later but used to hire your friends, wield influence, and build a political machine. So what are these Washington, D.C., public-housing desirers offering to the all-too-gullible citizens, too many of whom always seem to be naively or connivingly on the lookout for something for nothing?

3a. 21 down, 9,979 to go: The Citadel graduates its first class of nursing students

By 2030, a major nursing shortage has been predicted for South Carolina — the fourth worse in the country. So that’s why The Citadel’s first-ever graduating class of nursing students is seen both as a welcome addition to the state’s health sector and a sure path to future employment. “I’m coming away prepared to work as a nurse,” said Emily Banks, who was among the first 21 graduates from the school’s new Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. At a pinning ceremony just before commencement, department head Dr. Amelia Joseph emphasized the projected shortage. “The baby boomer nurses are leaving the profession,” she said. Last fall, the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis also detailed the projected shortage. Its data said that in the next 12 years South Carolina will need around 10,000 additional nurses.

For high school coaches, fundraising is a job that never ends. There’s always a need for new equipment and uniforms, money for travel costs and facility upgrades. But for his James Island High School team’s latest effort, baseball coach Matt Spivey wanted something different than the usual crowdfunding apps now in vogue. “Everybody is doing crowdfunding now,” Spivey said. “But you hear all the time that the kids don’t have to do anything to raise the money. And that’s important for our kids, that it’s not just ‘Get a list of names and see if they will give us money.’” Spivey found his solution in mPower6, a youth-sports fundraising company founded by former Citadel baseball assistant coach David Beckley. The system connects youth and high school sports fundraising efforts with charities or other worthy causes.

Joe Biden will have his first chance this weekend to demonstrate whether he can attract the type of diverse coalition that twice sent Barack Obama to the White House. The former vice president has opened his presidential campaign with explicit appeals to white, working class voters across the Midwest, pledging his allegiance to unions and promising to rebuild the middle class. His premier trip to South Carolina as a 2020 contender on Saturday will gauge whether his message will resonate among black voters whose support will be crucial in winning the nation’s first southern primary.

7. Is This the Man Who Lost the Vietnam War?
In 1989, this writer had occasion to interview four-star General William Childs Westmoreland, now 86, formerly U.S. military commander in South Vietnam and at the time of the interview a retired Chief of Staff of the Army. Westmoreland was from South Carolina; his ancestors fought for the Confederacy. His father wanted his son to become a lawyer. “Informed and well-read, he encouraged me in a broad range of activities, from studies to boxing and playing the flute,” recalled the four-star retired general in his 1976 memoirs, A Soldier Reports. Famous friend James F. Byrnes (South Carolina Senator, Secretary of State) steered him instead from South Carolina’s famous military school, The Citadel, toward West Point. He was graduated as an artillery officer in 1936 and soon had served in army bases around the country.

Former Lakewood standout Buffalo playing final year at Boise State after 3 at The Citadel
Former Lakewood High School standout defensive back Khafari Buffalo played the first three years of his college football career with The Citadel in Charleston. As a graduate student transfer, Buffalo is taking his talents out of the state of South Carolina for his final year. Way out of state. Buffalo is heading out west - to Boise, Idaho, to be exact - to play for Boise State in the 2019 season. Buffalo's biggest reason for leaving The Citadel was he wasn't fully able to be himself there. "It was a long four years," said Buffalo who redshirted in 2015. "It was a challenging four years with my personality. I'm always smiling. It's a strict, straightforward school, so I had to adjust." Last season with the Bulldogs, Buffalo recorded 38 tackles, including 28 solo stops and one for a loss, an interception, six pass breakups and a quarterback hurry. "One thing Khafari could always do was run," Citadel head football coach Brent Thompson said. "He just needed to develop his skills. We started him off at safety and then we moved him out to corner(back), which I think is a bit of what got him recruited at Boise. When you're a 6-foot-1(-inch) corner, you're gonna be able to match up against 6-1 to 6-4 wide receivers."

5. Goodbye, Mr. Miceli
Augie Miceli, 86, is retiring after 60 years as a math teacher at Calvert Hall College High School in Towson. Miceli first came to the school in 1958 as an assistant football coach. His varsity teams included his son, Augie Jr., class of 1982. His more than 6,000 students have included a grandson, Augie, ’20 – and several faculty and staff members, four of whom shared their sentiments about Miceli with the Review. Miceli went to the The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, S.C., and served two years in the U.S. Army. “You could see that background in his teaching,” Heidrick said. “There was regimentation, and a strategy for how we could best achieve our goals. We were going to get the most out of every one of his classes.”

6. Citadel football’s Noah Dawkins gets his NFL shot — two of them

On The Citadel’s pro day in March, Noah Dawkins sat dejectedly on the side of the practice field, a towel over his head. With NFL scouts watching, the Bulldogs’ linebacker had tweaked his hamstring just a few strides into his 40-yard dash. He finished the 40, but wouldn’t be able to complete the position drills that followed. “I was highly upset,” Dawkins said. “Because I couldn’t do anything further. I did my best to finish some position drills at the end, and tried to show some resilience.” Even though pro day didn’t go as planned, the 6-0, 226-pound Dawkins showed enough that day and over his career to earn invitations to two NFL rookie mini-camps. Dawkins has been invited to the Seattle Seahawks’ mini-camp this weekend and to the Cincinnati Bengals mini-camp next weekend. “I feel great,” Dawkins said. “I just wanted to have the opportunity, and now that I have it I want to take advantage of it.”

6. Got questions about South Carolina teachers’ May 1 protest? We’ve got answers.
At 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, several thousand teachers and their supporters will march two blocks from the S.C. Department of Education to the Statehouse for a day of protests, speeches and picketing. In a state without teacher unions or a recent history of mass teacher protests, parents and teachers are bound to have some questions about what’s going on. Will the teachers be punished? Not likely. Teachers are allowed to take personal leave days. Unlike most workers in South Carolina, teachers are protected by a law that says their bosses must give a reason for firing them and give an opportunity to appeal the decision. Although some state and local government officials have condemned the event, labor historian Kerry Taylor of The Citadel said it’s unlikely they will take punitive action against the teachers. “The Legislature is limited in what they can do because of the great support that teachers wield and the support that they maintain in the larger community,” Taylor said.

7. Yay dragons, boo battle plans: A spoiler-filled breakdown of Game of Thrones' ‘horrible tactical siege’ of Winterfell

Spoiler warning.

For the millions who tuned in to the latest episode of Game of Thrones, “The Long Night” was a thrilling hour-and-a-half of television. But the massive battle scenes in the episode threw up some red flags for Michael Livingston, professor of English and medieval history at the Citadel Military College in South Carolina. “Tactically, strategically, logically, none of this is making any sense for this battle,” said Livingston. The author of the Game of Thrones books, George R.R. Martin, was open about the influences history had on the world, Westeros, and the story which unfolds. Outside of the dragons and army of the undead, much of the events of the show resemble medieval history — specifically the War of the Roses, the 15th century English civil war. But the resemblances do not carry over into how this siege battle played out, according to Livingston. “It’s absolutely a horrible tactical siege,” he said.

8. Ayanna Shivers named mayor; Chris Williams sworn-in as chairman pro tem
Mexico City Council member Ayanna Shivers was left speechless Monday after the council selected her as the first African American woman to serve as the city’s mayor. Chris Williams, who was sworn in for his fourth term on the council, was named chairman pro tem. Shivers was nominated by council member Vicki Briggs. The prospect of serving as mayor is exciting and it shows that Mexico is progressing, Shivers said. Mexico’s first black mayor was Herman O. Tolson, who served from 1974-75 and the first female mayor was Virginia Robertson who served from 2005 to 2010. Shivers was born and raised in Mexico but, like many young people from rural communities, Shivers left for college with no particular plan to move back. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma, then a master’s in education from the CITADEL in SOUTH CAROLINA and a Ph.D. in education from the University of Southern Mississippi. She spent 18 years working as a school counselor in SOUTH CAROLINA, but she would come spent time with her family in Mexico every summer. Eventually, she realized the same problems she was trying to solve in the community in SOUTH CAROLINA existed in her hometown.

9. What 19th-Century Foreign Writers Said about American Freedom and Prosperity
If you look at the results of relatively open and competitive market economies over the years, the decades, and especially the last two centuries, the only conclusion that can reasonably be reached is that free market liberal-oriented societies provide the conditions and opportunities for constant and continuous material and social betterment for the vast majority of those living in such political-economic systems. If one reflects for a moment on the fact that the historically normal and natural condition of man for all of recorded history up to about three centuries ago was abject and horrendous poverty and compare that with all that has happened during, especially the last two hundred years, the transformation in the human circumstance has been nothing short of remarkable if not seemingly miraculous. 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.

Georgia baseball bounces back with 9-0 win over The Citadel in North Augusta
After going 0-4 last week, the ninth-ranked Georgia baseball team bounced back and blanked The Citadel 9-0 at SRP Park in North Augusta, South Carolina. The Bulldogs improved to 34-12 on the year thanks to a strong start from Logan Moody, who started on the mound for the second time in his Georgia career. Moody kept his string of solid appearances going with five quality innings on the mound, allowing no runs on just one hit. The Bulldog bullpen was equally impressive and Georgia’s staff as a whole faced just one more than the minimum 27 batters. Georgia’s defense also helped the stable of arms by turning three double plays in the contest.
