1. Charleston, Citadel Foundation use 14,000 bushels of oysters in new Ashley River reef project

Oysters normally aren’t associated with large-scale economic development initiatives, but the staple of backyard roasts is playing a vital role in a pair of Charleston projects. The Citadel Foundation and the city of Charleston are teaming up to build oyster reefs along the western edge of the Ashley River to serve as environmental mitigation for construction activities on the peninsula that required permitting from the Army Corps of Engineers. For the city, the reef program helped obtain permits for the next phase of a deep-tunnel drainage system along the Septima P. Clark Parkway, commonly referred to as the Crosstown. The Citadel Foundation — a nonprofit that raises money for the school — will use the reefs as mitigation for dredging a channel to the Ashley River and construction of a pier and boating center for students.

2. Why SC tuition hikes are the lowest in years
Students at South Carolina public colleges are seeing the lowest bump in their tuition rate in years. After receiving state money to keep down costs, Clemson University, College of Charleston, Coastal Carolina University and The Citadel all have raised in-state tuition by 1 percent or less for next fall. Francis Marion University in Florence is not raising tuition. The Citadel planned to start an engineering program and a wellness center for active duty veterans and first responders, but the school decided to keep tuition down instead, said Col. John Dorrian, a spokesman at the college. “We’ll still be able to implement it, but probably more slowly,” Dorrian said, “and that’s OK.” Out-of-state tuition hikes, meanwhile, are remaining the same as recent years.

3c. The Citadel alumni, cadets and future cadets convene at Fan Day
A crowd of Citadel Blue flocked to the Uptown Market Thursday evening to take pictures with “Emmett,” the Greater Greenwood Club’s bulldog topiary and connect with Citadel alumni, cadets and Greenwood high school graduates destined to be cadets in the fall. Tom Jordan, the Greater Greenwood Citadel Club’s president, said he was happy to see supporters of The Citadel coming together. “We all gathered today for a family rally,” Jordan said. “We started doing this a year ago and this is going to be an annual tradition.” Jordan, who graduated from The Citadel in 1979, said the event brought six incoming freshmen to the school. Twelve current cadets were present, along with several more alumni. This year’s Festival of Flowers included a Citadel topiary, a bulldog who wears a collar that reads, “Emmett.” The bulldog was named after Emmett Davis, the late co-founder of engineering firm Davis & Floyd and a titan of business in Greenwood. Davis died in 2016.

5a. Medicine Man
To hear Dr. Wathen Medley tell it, he's been on vacation the past 50-plus years. The 82-year-old Owensboro physician says the last time he really worked, he was a teen rolling bourbon barrels with other members of the yard crew at Medley Distilling Co., his family's business. Besides his trademark outfit — a sports coat, white shirt and Kentucky Colonel string tie — Medley is known for his sense of humor and easygoing personality. On the first Wednesday of November 1969, Medley opened an Owensboro medical practice at the Doctors Building, 1001 Center St. Medley's younger years were spent in Owensboro, but he attended high school at the Kentucky Military Institute in Lyndon. From there, he enrolled in military college at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. In 1963, Medley graduated from Tulane Medical School and later that year accepted an internship in Dallas, Texas. When he talked about his internship, he quietly mentioned it was the year President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas as his motorcade drove through Dealey Plaza.

5c. Lake educators get peek behind USMC training curtain
They gave up nearly a week of summer vacation to gain some insight into what is known as “transformation” — the fairly rapid development of young civilian men and women into United States Marines. The majority of the group were high school classroom teachers, three of them from Lake County’s Golden Triangle: Kevin Gifford and Ashley McMillan from Mount Dora and Josh Phillips of Eustis. Terri Metcalf, a teacher assistant at Mount Dora High, also made the trip. They learned by doing. Three-sport coach and Exceptional Student Education teacher Gifford has “a whole new level of respect for the Armed Forces.” A former collegiate baseball player, Gifford had turned down a scholarship at The Citadel — “The Military College of South Carolina” — choosing instead to play for Alabama’s Crimson Tide. “I have always wondered how different my life would have been had I gone to The Citadel,” he said. “But I do love teaching and coaching.”

6. Citadel greats Dan McDonnell, Chris Lemonis face off in College World Series thriller

After three hours and 30 minutes of tense baseball on a national stage, it came down to a brief handshake and a hug. Dan McDonnell’s Louisville Cardinals were leaping around TD Ameritrade Park in joyous celebration. Chris Lemonis’ Mississippi State Bulldogs were strewn around the field in stunned heartbreak. McDonnell approached Lemonis, his best friend and former Citadel teammate, with an outstretched right hand. The two hugged and shared brief words. McDonnell and Lemonis were teammates on The Citadel’s 1990 College World Series team, and the pair worked together as assistants under Bulldogs legend Fred Jordan. They helped The Citadel to five Southern Conference tournament titles and four regular-season championships, with five appearances in the NCAA tournament from 1993-2006. And after McDonnell took over at Louisville in 2007, he hired Lemonis away from The Citadel as his top assistant. Together they led the Cardinals to three CWS appearances in eight years.

He started his 22-year head coaching career at Lincoln Memorial University in 1997 and led the team’s transition from the NAIA to a Division II program that rose as high as No. 13 in the national rankings.

1. Citadel students spend summer learning from world-renowned expert in nation’s capital
The Citadel is giving the next generation of principled leaders a chance to learn directly from today’s decision makers. This is the fourth year The Citadel in DC program has been offered, and it has been made possible every year by the college’s strong ties with Washington, DC, as well as the large alumni network there. This year, The Citadel in DC program is giving 14 cadets and students the chance to earn academic credit and real-world experience. The nearly two months-long program combines an internship with a class, allowing participants to earn nine total credit hours. During their time in Washington, the cadets and students live in Catholic University. For the first three years, the program was offered through the Fine Arts and Criminal Justice departments. But this time, The Citadel in DC is being offered through the Intelligence and Security Studies department, and the class’s focus is on related U.S. policies, both foreign and domestic.

3. A PREEMINENT SERVANT-LEADER RETIRES AFTER DEDICATING 42 YEARS TO THE CITADEL
Thousands of men and women passed through Lesesne Gate over the past 42 years. Many of them have gone on to lead armies, governments, corporations, churches and community organizations. And, many of them had their futures fortified by this one man, Mark Bebensee, Ph.D., the man some call the “saint” of The Citadel. Now, Bebensee’s many admirers are wishing him well as he retires after dedicating his life to lifting those around him toward higher goals through a Citadel education. “During his decades of service as an educator at The Citadel, Dr. Mark Bebensee helped steer the successful development of thousands of principled leaders,” said Gen. Glenn M. Walters, USMC (Ret.), ’79, president of The Citadel. “A legendary leader and teacher, Dr. Bebensee exemplified the servant leadership he worked to instill in every class of cadets during his time as a professor, department head, assistant dean and as interim provost.”

4. Lifetime Achievement: David Aughtry
David Aughtry of Chamberlain, Hrdlicka, White, Williams & Aughtry discovered something about himself after graduating from The Citadel, picking up degrees in law and accounting at the University of South Carolina and earning an LLM in taxation at Emory: “I was born to try tax cases.” He did just that for the Internal Revenue Service for four years, then crossed over to defending their targets. Many of Aughtry’s cases are featured in textbooks and taught in law schools, including his win at the U.S. Supreme Court in Commissioner v. Estate of Hubert. The justices held that a taxpayer does not have to reduce the estate tax deduction for marital or charitable bequests by the amount of the administration expenses that were paid from income generated during administration by assets allocated to those bequests. He also has won both sides of the same issue, whether a horse can be considered recognized as a deductible business development tool. He won the negative answer while representing the IRS and in 2017 won the positive answer for a client in Topping v. Commissioner.

6. Coaches put friendship aside as Louisville meets Mississippi State in CWS elimination game
It’s no longer an option for the two coaches to have their teams avoid playing each other. Chris Lemonis and Dan McDonnell have managed to not schedule games between their schools — Mississippi State and Louisville — because of their decades-long friendship that dates to their days as teammates at The Citadel. But one friend will end the other’s season Thursday when the teams meet in the 7 p.m. elimination game at TD Ameritrade Park. It won’t be like the good old days when McDonnell and Lemonis suited up for The Citadel. Lemonis had one at-bat in ’89 and played his senior season in 1993, the year he was an all-conference first baseman. McDonnell was an all-conference pick in 1992 at second base.

1. Tuition increase for in-state cadets to be lower than originally projected

In-state cadets will be paying less for their 2019-2020 tuition at The Citadel than originally projected. The Citadel Board of Visitors (BOV) finalized tuition rates for the upcoming academic year at their meeting on June 15. The decision included a tuition increase of 0.8% for in-state cadets, rather than the projected 2.5% increase announced last November. The Higher Education Price Index (HEPI), an inflation index designed to track cost drivers in higher education, projects a 2.6% increase nationally for 2019-2020. The Citadel is one of the only two remaining 24/7 military institutions for undergraduates, aside from the federal academies. As such, when comparing college tuition rates it is important to note that The Citadel’s fee structure is different because the costs of room and board and multiple sets of military uniforms comprise the overall “all-in” rate. This is because members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets ─ the undergraduate population ─ must live in the barracks, eat all meals in the mess hall, and wear uniforms while on campus. Laundry, dry cleaning and books are also included in the all-in rate, with those costs calculated as part of each cadet’s Quartermaster Account. The all-in rate does not include other items such as lab fees that vary according to the academic major or schedule of each cadet or student.

2. Cadet internship, study abroad teaches the important role of health care
In an internship at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) that took place during the fall and spring semesters, Cadet Charlie Coste, a rising senior, learned how important his role will be as a physician. Coste spent the entire academic year volunteering at the MUSC Children’s Hospital, working with and helping to care for sick children. One of the most difficult experiences for him was when he learned that one of the children he had gotten to know was dying, holding on with only the help of life-support. As he made his usual rounds, Coste went to check on the boy, and from outside the door, he heard his name being called. As he entered, the child asked Coste to hold him. “I remember sitting there holding him, and he was starting to be in pain and began moving around. I remember thinking that I could be the last person that he ever has contact with—the last person to have a chance to put a smile on his face. So I then got this inclination to start softly singing some church hymns and say a silent prayer for him. When I did this, he started to calm down and reached out and squeezed my hand. I looked down to see a big smile on his face, and that is a sight I will remember for the rest of my life,” said Coste.

4. ‘Kind, Fiercely Competitive’ Southern Regional Class of 2019 Begins Its Next Journey
Prior to lining up for the march from the high school’s 11/12 gymnasium to the field, the 500 graduates of the Class of 2019 mingled about, taking photos of each other in groups, snapping selfies with teachers and administrators, and, generally, simply absorbing the joy of their final minutes together. Chris Ambrosio, who was the first to arrive to the school and parked his Ford F150 at the front of the line to leave once the ceremony was complete, credited Technical Sgt. Aubrey Vasquez with teaching him the “principles of being a leader, taking care of others and who I am as a person.” “I’m ready to get out of here and go to college,” said the ROTC commander-in-charge, who is headed for The Citadel in South Carolina, where he plans to study intelligence as he works toward the U.S. Marine Corps. “Here at Southern, I’ve learned how to push myself more than what I think I can do. I’m going to miss my friends and the daily connections I’ve had with the people here.”

4. Just the start: Graduates from Paterson's IB program earn $2M in college scholarships

The first 40 graduates from Paterson’s International Baccalaureate (IB) program have received more than $2 million worth of college scholarships and admissions to such prestigious colleges as Columbia, Penn, Rochester Institute of Technology, and The Citadel, city education officials announced. The IB program, in which students learn Mandarin and take such advanced courses as “The Theory of Knowledge,” was launched in an effort to provide Paterson’s brightest pupils with a rigorous academic experience and to try to keep them from transferring to high schools outside the district. The teachers and other staff had to go through extensive training to be part of the program.

1. Replacing Plastic: Can Bacteria Help Us Break The Habit?

If civilizations are remembered for what they leave behind, our time might be labeled the Plastic Age. Plastic can endure for centuries. It's everywhere, even in our clothes, from polyester leisure suits to fleece jackets. A Silicon Valley startup is trying to get the plastic out of clothing and put something else in: biopolymers. A polymer is a long-chain molecule made of lots of identical units. Polymers are durable and often elastic. Plastic is a polymer made from petroleum products. But biopolymers occur often in nature — cellulose in wood or silk from silkworms — and unlike plastic, they can be broken down into natural materials. To degrade, biopolymers need warm temperatures and the right bacteria around to chew them up, and the process takes weeks or months of constant exposure. Morse acknowledges that if conditions aren't right, though — say in a dry Arizona desert or at the bottom of the ocean — it will take longer. That's one of the drawbacks of biopolymers so far; some haven't lived up to their promise to biodegrade quickly. Biology professor John Weinstein at The Citadel in South Carolina put corn-based polymer bags in a wetland and found they degraded even more slowly than regular plastic bags. "You've created a new material," he says of the bioplastic, "but how does it break down? I was surprised."

The city of Greenville has its new chief executive — John McDonough of Sandy Springs, Georgia, who will start the job Aug. 12. The search concludes after a year of uncertainty and fits and starts to find a replacement for former manager John Castile, who retired nearly a year ago after eight years at the helm, to the surprise and dismay of a council of elected leaders who supported him. McDonough told The Greenville News that he has family roots in the area, is excited to get to be on theand will complete work in Sandy Springs before coming to Greenville. McDonough has other roots in South Carolina. He received his bachelor's degree in political science from The Citadel before earning his master's in public affairs from Indiana University at South Bend.

5. The Motivation of a Squad - 3rd Regiment of Advanced Camp completes the Obstacle Course
The Delta Co., 3rd Regiment Cadets went through the Confidence Course yesterday, June 8, with the motivation of their squad encouraging them the whole way. The Course: The Confidence Course is made up of nine different obstacles meant to challenge the Cadets’ strength, both physical and mental. Each obstacle presents a new problem to overcome, and some are harder than others. Whether it’s climbing a rope to scoot across wooden planks or swinging yourself up onto a log, all encompass their own difficulties. The nine obstacles are The Tough One (known as being the most difficult), the Inclining Wall, the Low Belly Over, the Confidence Climb, the Six Vault, the Swing-Stop-and-Jump, the Low Wire, the High Step Over and the Weaver. Each one difficult, each one able to be overcome. “Stick together with your squad, really motivate them,” Cadet Huntor Ross, from Hampstead, Maryland, and attending The Citadel: The Military College of South Carolina, said. “The more motivation, the more fun you have.” Ross and his “rock star” squad, as he likes to call it, adapt and overcome together. It’s not about being independent, it’s about making the best of things with your squad and your friends.

7. America’s Economic Commissar of Trade
Since taking office in January 2017, President Donald Trump seems to have declared or threatened economic war on many of America’s leading economic trading partners, including China, the European Union, and most recently Mexico. Two things stand out in all this: first, he presumes that international trade is a zero-sum game in which if the U.S. wins, some other country must lose; and, second, he presumes that he is an economic czar with absolute powers to do as he wishes with almost no legal or constitutional restraint. Both are extremely dangerous assumptions with potentially serious negative consequences for the people of America and the rest of the world. President Trump looks at the world with a highly collectivist conception of “them vs. us” in international relationships. Yes, there are individual American consumers and producers, but in the realm of global economic politics, it is “America” in confrontation with the rest of the nations of the world. Does “America” have industries and jobs that he considers valuable, important, and productive, or do they exist somewhere else on the planet outside of the territorial jurisdiction of the United States? 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.

7. Debt, Deficits and the Cost of Free Lunches
It seems that every generation or two, fundamental economic ideas are questioned and challenged. The reasonable and important idea that governments should balance their budgets on an annual basis was challenged in the 1930s by the rise of Keynesian Economics and the counter-argument that deficit spending was desirable, if it was used to maintain full employment. Now it seems that any defense or desire for fiscal restraint and less government spending and borrowing are entirely out the window. Fiscal folly is the watchword of the day. It is not surprising that politicians care little about annual budget deficits and growing debt, since spending money is their way of buying votes from interest groups wanting to eat at the government trough. In America today, it is all a political game by which Democrats and Republicans pander to their respective voting blocs, especially in an upcoming presidential and congressional election year like 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.

1b. These Are the Colleges Most Likely to Score You a Job in Every State

Considering how insanely expensive higher education is in the States, the least you can hope for after graduating college is getting a job, let alone one doing something you're passionate about. The harsh reality is, of course, earning a degree from even a top-notch school is hardly guaranteed to score you a gig out there in the big bad world, especially in light of a record low unemployment rate. And while your field of study has a lot to do with setting you up for success, where you graduate can also play a big part. As of 2019, Connecticut's Quinnipiac University has the best overall graduate employment rate in the country at 96.1%, followed by South Dakota's Augustana University (96.05%), with Ohio Northern University ranking third (95.86%). These are the schools that earned the top spot in each state.

1c. A preeminent servant-leader retires after dedicating 42 years to The Citadel
Thousands of men and women passed through Lesesne Gate over the past 42 years. Many of them have gone on to lead armies, governments, corporations, churches and community organizations. And, many of them had their futures fortified by this one man, Mark Bebensee, Ph.D., the man some call the “saint” of The Citadel. Now, Bebensee’s many admirers are wishing him well as he retires after dedicating his life to lifting those around him toward higher goals through a Citadel education. “During his decades of service as an educator at The Citadel, Dr. Mark Bebensee helped steer the successful development of thousands of principled leaders,” said Gen.

6a. Commentary: What kind of Charleston would you prefer? Past or future?
It’s a notional question, a simplistic proposition really, but one that engages our deeper thinking about the reflective lessons of the past, and the gambles of the future. And I especially enjoy posing it equally to my younger pals and my older friends. What would you prefer: Greater Charleston as it has evolved over the last 50 years, or Greater Charleston as it might evolve over the next 50 years? It’s fun to see and hear the thoughts and insights spinning. Each of us can create a scorecard, and on mine that 50-year “past” seems pretty darn good. The dormant College of Charleston became a thriving state school. The Medical University of South Carolina grew in depth and sophistication. The Citadel, too, burnished its reputation as one of the nation’s best small colleges. Charleston Southern University came of age, and Trident Technical College evolved as a thriving tool for preparing an ever-growing workforce.

6b. Amazing Achievements by Women Every Year for the Last 40 Years
Women may have won the right to vote in 1920, the right to serve alongside men in the military in 1948, and the right to equal pay in 1963—but the past 40 years have been just as influential when it comes to women’s achievements. Since 1978, women have launched into space, released some of the most popular music of all time, and made lasting impacts on our judicial system. In honor of history’s most extraordinary ladies, we’ve rounded up some of the amazing achievements women have made every year for the past four decades. 1999: Nancy Ruth Mace becomes the first woman to graduate from The Citadel. Until 1995, The Citadel, a historic military college in South Carolina, refused to allow female cadets. However, following a Supreme Court ruling forcing the nation’s only other state-supported military college (the Virginia Military Institute) to allow women or stop accepting public money, The Citadel voted to admit its first female cadets. Nancy Ruth Mace was admitted to the school in 1996 and graduated in 1999, becoming the first woman to do so (another woman, Shannon Faulkner, was admitted to the school the year before but left after a week, citing isolation and stress).

7. How The Citadel produced 25 percent of the College World Series’ coaches
The challenge works like this: When Dan McDonnell or Chris Lemonis conduct an in-game TV interview, they must find a way to slip “The Citadel” into their answer. Or maybe the guys on the group text, members of the Bulldogs’ 1990 College World Series team, will demand a favorite quote from their legendary coach, the late Chal Port. “We’ll all be watching to see if they can pull it off,” said Tony Skole, The Citadel’s current coach and also a member of that famed 1990 team. “I think Lem is up one on Mac right now. It’s funny how everything we do winds up as a competition.” The college baseball world will be watching “Mac” and “Lem” starting Sunday as the pair of former Citadel players and assistant coaches lead their teams in the College World Series. The Bulldog Hall of Famers comprise 25 percent (two of eight) of the head coaches in this year’s CWS. McDonnell has his Louisville team in the CWS for the fifth time in 13 seasons, and is seeking his first national title. Lemonis, in his first season at Mississippi State, guided his team to a second straight College World Series appearance and is the winningest first-year coach in SEC history.

8. IN THEIR WORDS | Louisville's McDonnell, Vanderbilt's Corbin meet media in Omaha

Media Day at the College World Series in Omaha features all four coaches on a single side of a bracket speaking at the same news conference, and conversing a bit. For today’s proceedings, it seemed at times like a reunion. Dan McDonnell knows former Louisville assistant and current Mississippi State coach Chris Lemonis from their days at The Citadel. He’s the godfather of one of Lemonis’ children. McDonnell and Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin are longtime friends. In between the baseball, they talked a bit about their friendships with each other.

9a. A staff of over 250 make Charleston RiverDogs home games a team effort
Whether it's the world's largest silly string fight or a helicopter ball drop, the RiverDogs manage to lure thousands of fans to 70 or more home games every spring and summer in a city with no shortage of stuff to do. To make it all happen, a staff of more than 250 pitch in over the course of the season to ensure that fans are fed and entertained — and maybe enjoy a little baseball in between. The RiverDogs team that takes the field at the Joe and the other team of folks who welcome you to the ballpark operate almost completely independently. For all intents and purposes, the mascots, the dollar beers, the whole operation off the field, is just an elaborate delivery mechanism for the New York Yankees player development program here in Charleston. The Joseph P. Riley Jr. Ballpark is a city-owned facility used by the RiverDogs year round and as the home field for the Citadel baseball team. (Stadium construction was orchestrated by former Mayor Joe Riley in the late 1990s as part of a land swap between the city and the Citadel.) But since the field sits on an old landfill — hashtag Charleston — the city parks department comes in to mitigate 4-5 inches of settling that occurs each year in the unstable soil. A major rebuild actually came during the last offseason at a cost of just over $1 million from city tourism taxes.

9b. FCS: The 30 Toughest Schedules In The 2019 Season
At the end of the day, a team wants a strong 11-game schedule -- or 12 in this year's case. We've seen several times where 7-4 teams get into the playoff bracket over 9-2 teams because of who they beat and who they lost to (although the importance of quality losses can be debatable). So which FCS teams have the toughest schedules this year, either through scheduling strong opponents in the nonconference and/or getting dealt a tough hand in the conference slate? We break it down. 5. THE CITADEL 1 FBS, 5 Top 25, 4 2018 playoff teams vs. Towson @ Elon @ Georgia Tech (FBS) vs. Charleston Southern @ Samford vs. VMI vs. Western Carolina @ Furman vs. Mercer @ East Tennessee State @ Chattanooga vs. Wofford

2. Wave of military rollover deaths heightens fears over equipment and training
A series of accidents over the past month have led to the deaths of at least five and injuries to 43 American troops, triggering questions over whether equipment and training shortcomings are responsible. Frequent deployments since 9/11 and a lack of predictable defense funding has forced the military to do more with less for nearly 20 years. Many of the vehicles troops use are older than they are, and even newer ones suffer from parts shortages. The need for constant maintenance by fewer troops means training is often pushed back, or even canceled. Some are concerned recent accidents could be the result of a larger readiness problem. "If you haven't been getting enough miles on your vehicle, you can be susceptible to those kinds of accidents," retired Army Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr told the Washington Examiner. First Lt. Conor McDowell, 24, died and six Marines were injured on May 9 after a LAV-25 light armored vehicle rolled over during a training event at Camp Pendleton, Calif. A graduate of the Citadel in South Carolina, McDowell had completed his Light Armored Reconnaissance course in March and had only recently taken command of his platoon. "Driven, sincere, unique, honorable, funny ... You're one of the good ones," said one of the Facebook posts responding to the death of McDowell, who had been about to propose to his girlfriend.

5. SC1: Kathy Landing Makes It Official
She is mulling no longer, it would appear … Mount Pleasant, South Carolina financial advisor and town councilwoman Kathy Landing dove headfirst into the Palmetto State’s first congressional district race on Monday – setting up a battle for the Republican nomination with current frontrunner Nancy Mace. And perhaps others … Whoever wins the GOP nod next June will go up against Democrat incumbent Joe Cunningham, who flipped this seat blue last November in a shocking upset. However, Mace – a second-term state lawmaker – is viewed as “all in,” a perception capably reinforced by her recent decision to retain the services of controversial strategist Wesley Donehue to handle her S.C. State House digital-related initiatives. Mace is also reportedly working with Washington, D.C.-based strategist Doug Stafford, a longtime advisor to U.S. senator Rand Paul. The 41-year-old lawmaker – the first woman to graduate from The Citadel – is expected to announce her candidacy sometime later this month. Based on her previous political campaigns, she is expected to give Landing a run for her money on the fundraising front.

6. Coaxing Veterans Into Treatment to Prevent Suicides
To Army veteran Everett Brockington, 52, there’s no mystery about why so many veterans die by suicide: “They’ve seen things and done things that they can’t handle. And they’ve lost too many of their close friends.” Most of the veterans Brockington knows rely on one another for support instead of seeking mental health services. “We talk to each other about our problems all the time,” Brockington said. But he admitted, “It would be better if we had someone to talk to who knew what they were doing.” Although retired and active military service members die by suicide at twice the rate of civilians, research shows that veterans who receive mental health care are much less likely to end their lives than those who don’t. A soon-to-be-released study from the Medical University of South Carolina here in Charleston may shed light on how to persuade reluctant veterans to seek that professional help. Charleston, home to the Citadel military academy and combined Air Force and Navy training center Joint Base Charleston, has the seventh-largest metropolitan concentration of military personnel in the country. South Carolina, with a population of roughly 5 million, ranks 11th in the nation for its percentage of military in the adult population.

7. Wando's Cisco among finalists for Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame
Former Wando and South Carolina standout Mike Cisco is among the six finalists for the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2019 class. Cisco is joined by longtime coach and current Porter-Gaud assistant Tony Cadden, Summerville state champion Bo Parks, former College of Charleston coach John Pawlowski and Citadel legends Steve Arrington and Michael Montei. Two inductees will be decided by fan voting. A third will be chosen by the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame advisory committee. The three honorees will be enshrined on August 3 at Joe Riley Jr. Park prior to the Charleston RiverDogs’ home game against Delmarva. Arrington, a 2017 Citadel Hall of Fame inductee, was named the 1973 Southern Conference baseball player of the year after leading the Souther Conference in strikeouts (93 in 65 innings pitched), home runs (6) and RBIs (28) and was named to the South Carolina College Coaches All-Star team at both right fielder and pitcher. He was a member of the 1971 SoCon Championship team that went 22-9 under Coach Chal Port. Arrington pitched a pair of one-hitters, and held the school single-season records for strikeouts with 213 (196 IP) in 1973, complete games (8 in 1972), and shutouts (3 in 1971), and was second in ERA (0.96) in 1973. Montei, a 2005 Citadel Hall of Fame inductee, is a two-time member of the All-Southern Conference baseball team and a four-year letterman. His 30 victories, along with Hall of Famer Dick Almes ’60, set the standard for all Citadel pitchers. When he graduated in 1987, Montei was tied as the second all-time winningest pitcher in military college history, and also held school records for most innings pitched in a season (99.1 in ’87) and career (315), and most career appearances (64).

8. Former Spartan Jesse Johnson promoted to Michigan State defensive analyst
The Michigan State football program added another analyst to the staff and it’s a familiar name. Former Spartan defensive back Jesse Johnson, who spent the last two years as a graduate assistant with the team, was promoted in the offseason to a full-time position as a defensive analyst. A freedom of information act request filed by MLive showed Johnson signed a contract on March 18. After graduating from Michigan State, Johnson was a defensive/special teams quality control coach at The Citadel in 2012. He made stops as a graduate assistant at Central Michigan (2013-14) and Syracuse (2015) and returned to Mount Pleasant as the Chippewas’ on-campus recruiting coordinator in 2016 before coming back to Michigan State as a graduate assistant the following year.

9. 10 best nonconference games in the FCS
The best nonconference games are the ones in which each side goes into it saying, and worrying, it's a risky matchup. There are some doozies across FCS college football in 2019. Just as it should be. Following is a Top 10 of the best nonconference games (those between teams within the same conference that count as nonconference games aren't considered for this list): 10. Towson at The Citadel (Aug. 31): Towson quarterback Tom Flacco and The Citadel's triple option offense figure to make it a track meet, like a year ago (Towson won 44-27).

9. 10 teams Alabama has never faced but should
When it comes to beefing up its non-conference schedule, few programs nationally are as brazen as the Alabama Crimson Tide. The defending SEC champions have contracts in place for future games with Texas, Notre Dame and Oklahoma along with others, matchups that will strengthen one of college football's most recognizable brands against elite Power 5 competition. Even amid chatter about the SEC possibly moving to a nine-game conference schedule, Alabama hasn't stopped looking for ways to enhance the fan experience and improve schedule toughness outside of league play. Alabama has played two games against service academies, the first coming against Army in the 1988 El Paso Bowl and the other last season vs. The Citadel. Saban actually coached defensive backs at Navy for one season in 1982 before becoming a first-time head coach eight years later at Toledo. This could easily be one of those made-for-TV midseason games during Military Appreciation Weekend hosted by the Naval Academy, but played at FedEx Field or something. Networks would fight for airplay. Schematically, Navy's triple option gives teams fits and we saw what The Citadel was able to accomplish last fall vs. the Crimson Tide (keep it close for 2.5 quarters).

1b. North Carolina natives travel to France for 75th anniversary of D-Day
Thursday marks the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings, also known as D-Day. On June 6, 1944, Allied forces invaded Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. D-Day was the largest seaborne invasion in history. To honor those who fought during WWII, servicemen from all over the U.S. are in France, including men and women from North Carolina. Samuel McCauley is part of the cordon for the arrival of President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday. As part of the D-Day commemoration, Samuel also escorted WWII veterans through the cemetery, soaking up living history lessons from those who stormed the beach at Normandy. “He graduated from The Citadel with a history degree so he loves history,” Anna said of Samuel. “I think a poignant moment for him was escorting a World War II vet around the cemetery and the gentleman telling him how he had fought from the beaches to the Battle of the Bulge.” Anna said her son will be in France until early next week.

2b. Through the eyes of the Charleston hospital workers movement: 50 years later

In March 1969, African American hospital workers had enough. Underpaid and overworked, hundreds, mostly women, took their grievances to the streets of Charleston. They demanded better treatment, the rehiring of 12 co-workers fired by the Medical College Hospital, now the Medical University of South Carolina, and the recognition of the Local 1199B union.

Interviews include:

Kerry Taylor, professor of history at The Citadel, speaking at an April commemoration for the hospital strikers.

Mary Moultrie, one of 12 fired hospital workers at Medical College Hospital and a strike leader, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

Rosetta Simmons, one of 12 fired hospital workers at Medical College Hospital and a striker, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

William “Bill” Saunders, among the earliest community advocates of the striking hospital workers, in a March 2009 interview for The Citadel Oral History Program.

More than 900 graduates gathered Friday, June 7, in Elon University’s Alumni Gym for Alamance Community College’s 2019 Commencement. Roughly 600 earned associate degrees, while others earned diplomas, certificates or high school equivalencies. Twenty Alamance-Burlington seniors were awarded associates a week shy of graduating from high school thanks to the Career and College Promise program, which allows ABSS juniors and seniors to take courses at ACC for free. As ACC President Algie Gatewood introduced the commencement speaker, Elon University President Connie Book, he joked that it was odd to be welcoming her to her own university. But her message was perfect for the occasion. The sixth of nine children, Book was taught to value education from an early age. She and her eight siblings attended Oregon State University, where her father earned his doctorate. After serving in various roles at Elon from 1999 to 2015, Book left to become provost at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, where she learned valuable lessons in leadership. Those lessons aided her in becoming Elon University’s first female president — a role she assumed in March 2018.

When Chris Lemonis stepped to the podium on June 25, 2018 at Dudy Noble Field to become the 18th head baseball coach in Mississippi State’s storied history, a journey of nearly 40 years came full circle. The son of a 1973 State graduate, Lemonis resided in Starkville as a child and now returned to lead one of the perennial powerhouses in college baseball. One of the top recruiters and player development coaches in the country, Lemonis has seen success at every coaching stop. After helping his alma mater, The Citadel, to five NCAA Regional appearances in 12 seasons as an assistant coach, Lemonis joined college teammate Dan McDonnell’s staff at Louisville and quickly turned the Cardinals into a consistent Omaha contender.

6d. How conversation with Pat Summitt sparked Joan Cronan's return to Tennessee
When Joan Cronan scheduled to meet with College of Charleston President Ted Stern in 1973, she did so to emphasize the importance of launching women’s athletics at the college. She left that meeting with a job — actually, four jobs. “I was either a very good negotiator or a bad negotiator, but I walked out of that meeting as volleyball coach, basketball coach, tennis coach and AD,” said Cronan, who was the College of Charleston’s women’s athletics director for 10 years. Cronan started her career in athletics as Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach for the 1969 and '70 seasons. She stepped away from athletics for a few years while she and her husband, Tom, had two children. The family moved to Charleston, South Carolina, for Tom to take a job at The Citadel. Within a year of moving there, Cronan sought a meeting with Stern and re-entered athletics. Summitt became Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach in 1974, and she and Cronan got to know each other during Cronan’s time at the College of Charleston.

7. SoCon’s new boss on mid-week football, FCS future and that second NCAA bid
During a career of more than 30 years in athletic administration, Jim Schaus has never worked in the Southern Conference. But Schaus, recently named as the SoCon’s new commissioner, is no stranger to the league. His father, Fred, coached basketball legend Jerry West at West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to six SoCon titles before going on to coach the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. Schaus talked with The Post and Courier about his view of the 10-member SoCon, which includes South Carolina schools The Citadel, Wofford and Furman, and the future of the league.

8d. Future looks bright for Jackets; this season may not be as bad as it seems
At his farewell news conference, former coach Paul Johnson downplayed the harshness of the transition from his throwback offense to whatever scheme the next Georgia Tech coach used. Hardly any of his Tech players ran the triple-option in high school, Johnson noted. He made a good point. Bill Connelly’s S&P+ statistical formula projects four victories for Tech with a last-place finish in the ACC Coastal Division. Only Louisville rates lower in the league. The Jackets are going to get clobbered by Clemson in the season opener. Georgia will beat them badly in the season closer. In between, Tech will have only one sure win, The Citadel of the FCS. The Jackets should have a decent shot against South Florida and North Carolina at Bobby Dodd Stadium. It’s improbable that Tech wins more than four games, but some surprises are possible because the ACC looks to be down again.

9. The best football tradition for each Top 25 team
More than anything, the traditions are what make college football so much fun. Some have been going on for decades, while others like the Iowa Wave are recent additions but are already an indelible part of the game. Here is the best football tradition for each team in our post-spring power rankings. 8. Florida "Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar. All for the Gators, stand up and holler!" Since 1949, every Florida home game has started with the famous cheer, and it's all thanks to George Edmondson, who decided to give his Gators a lift during a game against The Citadel to drown out boos from around the stadium. His yellow shirt, blue-and-orange striped tie and whistle continue to live on. After his retirement in 2008, Florida has had celebrity Mr. Two Bits lead the pregame cheers. -- Andrea Adelson

1. First trip out of the USA takes cadet to Amazon basin
Peru is the fourth largest rain forest country on the planet, and Carleton Bailiff is venturing right into the middle of it. Bailiff is outside of the U.S. for the first time, studying abroad with The Citadel. The junior is spending the summer based out of Iquitos, Peru with six other cadets and students. Iquitos, in the middle of the Amazon basin, is the “world’s largest city that cannot be reached by road,” according to Lonely Planet. “My travels from South Carolina to Iquitos took over 24 hours,” Bailiff reported shortly after arriving. “It took a bit longer than I expected.” Bailiff is sharing some of his experiences via email from Peru. He said his first impression of Iquitos was interesting. “I felt like I was in a movie. All of a sudden I didn’t want to look like ‘that tourist.’ I didn’t want to stick out.” Bailiff explained that he jumped right into trying new things as soon as he got out into the city, like sipping on a pipa. A pipa is a fresh green coconut with the top cut off so the coconut water and meat inside can be enjoyed.

2. Sex assault charge dismissed against former Citadel employee
Court records show a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct against a former Citdael officer has been dismissed. Kenneth Boes, 56, surrendered himself to South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Agents on Aug. 22, 2018, on that charge and a second charge of the transfer of beer or wine to a person under the age of 21. Charleston County court documents show the criminal sexual assault charge was dismissed on May 29. The status of the second charge was not immediately clear. Investigators had alleged in affidavits the victim claimed Boes had forcibly kissed him and performed unwanted sexual acts after giving the victim alcohol and unknown pills. Citadel Vice President for Marketing and Communications John Dorrian said at the time of Boes’ bond hearing the school received an allegation of sexual abuse in May 2018. Dorrian says the allegation was immediately reported to SLED. He also says the school’s Commandant reassigned Boes and issued a no-contact order prohibiting interaction with cadets and students pending the outcome of the investigation. Boes resigned from his position at the military college on Aug. 23. Boes attended The Citadel on a four-year Army ROTC scholarship and was designated as a distinguished military graduate, according to his biography which has since been taken down. As a Battalion TAC officer, he oversaw 450 cadets and was selected for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel in May 2016.

3. Judge grants orders of protections against Sumner teacher
The parents of five Shafer Middle School students have been granted orders of protection against one of the school’s teachers amid allegations that the teacher used explicit sexual language and gestures around the students who say they are now afraid of him. Robert Ring, who has taught 6th grade social studies at the Gallatin school since 2013, was suspended without pay effective May 17 for allegations of inappropriate contact with a student(s), according to a letter in his personnel file. The Sumner County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that office is investigating Ring, but declined to comment further. No charges have been filed against the teacher. On Monday, Judge Mike Carter granted orders of protection to the parents of five minor children. Three of the petitioners checked a box that said the respondent had stalked them. All five checked a box that said the respondent sexually assaulted them. Three petitioners checked a box that said the respondent was verbally aggressive and used strong sexual language. Ring is listed as the respondent on all of the petitions. Ring received a bachelor of arts degree from The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina in 1992 and served for four years in the U.S. Armed Forces, according to his file. He then obtained his master’s degree in elementary education from Middle Tennessee State University in 1999.

6. Spartanburg towns to elect council members Tuesday
Voters in four Spartanburg County municipalities will head to the polls Tuesday (June 11) to elect council members and, in one city, a mayor as well. In Wellford, Mayor Pat Watson is running unopposed. Watson has served 16 years on city council and the past four as mayor. A graduate of Florence Chapel High School, she is retired. “The city of Wellford has had much growth in geographical, infrastructure and public services in recent years while managing a reasonable millage rate,” she said. “I am seeking re-election to continue to provide high-quality services to all citizens and visitors of Wellford, improve infrastructure and attract new businesses to our area.” Holcombe is a retired Greenville County Department of Social Services unit supervisor for abuse and neglected children. She said she is seeking re-election to complete Wellford City Park, bring in “additional businesses, continue to keep the city safe, paving of roads and continue beautifying the city.” Jones said he’s running for Wellford council “to make a difference in the community.” He said he is a political adviser and works independently on various local, state and federal campaigns. “During my time at The Citadel Military College in Charleston, I always wanted to come home after college to improve my area from the knowledge gained from my education,” he said.

Hilton and Holton on Team Georgia coached by Eubanks
Apparently, Todd Eubanks can’t get enough baseball. Eubanks, who just finished his first year as head baseball coach at South Effingham High School, will be headed to Oklahoma this week to coach Team Georgia in the 25th annual Junior Sunbelt Classic. Team Georgia is a collection of 20 top high school juniors (rising seniors) in the state. The Georgia all-star team will play 10 games against teams from seven different states (Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi and Colorado) along with a team from Canada during a six-day period (June 7-12). Oklahoma has two teams entered. Over the years, major leaguers Brian McCann, Adam Frazier, Byron Buxton, Charlie Culberson and Buster Posey have played for Team Georgia. According to the Team Georgia website, among the first 180 players who represented Georgia in the Sunbelt Classic, 80 went on to play Division I baseball, 14 played Division II and 60 went to junior college. Thirty-five Team Georgia players signed to play professionally. Tater Goodson (Benedictine, now at The Citadel) played for Team Georgia in 2017. Austin Thompson (South Effingham, now at Georgia Southern) and Zack Brockman (Savannah Christian, now at Liberty University) were part of the team in 2016.

Western Carolina ranked 17th in 2018 FCS football attendance
Since his installation as head football coach at Western Carolina University, Mark Speir has stressed the importance of creating the best home atmosphere at E.J. Whitmire Stadium / Bob Waters Field, not only in the Southern Conference but in all the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision. Catamount Nation continues to respond in a boisterous voice. For a second-consecutive season, Western Carolina led the Southern Conference in average home football attendance, posting a program-best 17th national ranking in the FCS in 2018 as the NCAA released its annual football attendance surveys. Last year marked the fifth-consecutive season that WCU has ranked inside the national Top 30 in attendance figures and a fifth-straight year the average attendance number has improved in Cullowhee, posting an average of 10,580 in 2018 – the best seasonal average since 1991. All told, the Southern Conference had three teams inside the national Top 30 in average home attendance in 2018 with Mercer (22nd, 9,803) and The Citadel (24th, 9,343) to rank sixth out of the 13 national NCAA FCS conferences.

1. The Citadel and Colleton County schools collaborate to enrich literacy education
The Zucker Family School of Education at The Citadel is making it easier for teachers in rural counties to earn their master of education degrees. The most recent example is a partnership between The Citadel Graduate College and the Colleton County School District (CCSD). The two institutions are providing up to 20 CCSD teachers the opportunity to earn Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Literacy Education degrees at a lower cost and closer to where they work and live. This is will be the second time The Citadel and CCSD have cooperated to advance literacy education. Eight Colleton teachers graduated from The Citadel Graduate College with M.Ed.’s in Literacy Education in May of 2019. It worked so well, the program is being renewed with the hope of enrolling even more teachers.

2. Ex-prosecutor Dan Johnson, who ‘betrayed the community,’ sentenced to prison

Former 5th Circuit Solicitor Dan Johnson was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison for stealing some $44,000 in tax dollars for personal use while he was in office. In the sentencing hearing in federal court Tuesday, a tearful Johnson, 49, apologized for committing a felony. Then U.S. Judge Cameron McGowan Currie praised Johnson’s various career accomplishments but stressed his offenses were inexcusable and she had to send a message to the community. “He has built up the community, but he has betrayed the community,” Currie said, noting Johnson was raised in a stable family, had gone to the Citadel and law school, had held jobs as a congressional intern and assistant prosecutor and had started programs to help young people.

3. Greenville enters negotiations with Georgia city manager favorite

The city of Greenville's search for a replacement to former City Manager John Castile is coming to a close as leaders on Monday selected three finalists for the position vacant for nearly a year — and have entered negotiations with their favorite. After a closed-door session, the City Council instructed its human resources director to negotiate a potential contract with John McDonough, the city manager for Sandy Springs, Georgia. The city hopes to have a new manager in place by the end of August. McDonough is responsible for oversight of the city’s 500 staff members and additional outside contractors, as well as its $463 million operating, capital and special fund budgets. Prior to serving as Sandy Springs’ city manager for the past 13 years, McDonough served as the city manager of Beaufort, South Carolina. With over 27 years of municipal government leadership, McDonough has significant experience managing large, complex capital projects, building public-private partnerships and addressing challenges caused by exceptional growth. McDonough earned a Master of Public Affairs from Indiana University at South Bend and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The Citadel.

An affiliate of Georgia real estate development firm Holder Properties officially holds the deed to the property containing Daniel Island’s MUSC Health Stadium.

1. Tragic end to Irish-American love story in “bizarre” military training accident
Marine 1st Lt. Hugh Conor McDowell was killed during a Camp Pendelton training exercise on May 9. He had been preparing to propose to his girlfriend, Kathleen Bourque. Theirs was a whirlwind romance, and it is a senseless tragedy that they will not get to build a life together. When he left for a 10-day training mission, Marine 1st Lt Hugh Conor McDowell, 24, told his mother that the ring he was having made out of two family heirlooms was nearly ready. With it, he was going to propose to his girlfriend, Katheleen Bourque. Ten months earlier, they had moved across the country together after knowing each other for just four days, working on a hunch about the strength of their love and commitment. But Lt. McDowell never returned from that training mission, he was killed when the Light Armored Vehicle he was traveling in with six other cadets hit a ditch and overturned. The cadets sustained injuries, but Lt. McDowell, who had been commanding from the gun turret, did not survive.

Feminist Fight Club author and the gender editor of the New York Times Jessica Bennett has a new collection of essays, art, and interviews for girls: This Is 18: Girls' Lives Through Girls' Eyes, out on Nov. 12. Bustle has an exclusive first-look at the cover below, as well as an excerpt from the book, so you can get hyped for This Is 18 well in advance of its publication.

As the gender editor of The New York Times, a position she has held since late 2017, Bennett's work explores the lives of women of all ages, races, and economic classes. In Nov. 2018, Bustle teamed up with Bennett's The New York Times vertical to publish a list of "13 Political Secrets People Kept from Family and Friends." After the landmark publication of Kristen Roupenian's short story "Cat Person," Bennett and New York Times Modern Love editor Daniel Jones joined forces to create a wide-reaching piece exploring how people practice consent in their personal lives. More recent pieces include a profile on The Citadel's Sarah Zorn and an examination of the precarious position Missouri's last abortion clinic now occupies. This Is 18 brings Bennett's work at The New York Times to a wider audience.

6. So What About Charleston/North Charleston Municipal Elections?
A friend recently asked what I think about the upcoming Charleston municipal elections. I don’t think about it much! Man, Charleston’s municipal elections ain’t until November 5. I don’t think that far ahead. That’s the first thought that comes to my mind, but it’s not true. The real deal is I constantly think about the upcoming elections in both Charleston and North Charleston. And it’s never too early to think about elections. But although I’m a City of Charleston resident, I’m really more concerned about the outcome of municipal elections in North Charleston. I think that’s where the greatest potential for Black power lies. In my mind, when it comes to Black power and the City of Charleston, that horse has left the barn. Former Charleston Mayor Joe Riley’s 40-year political administration took Black blight after white flight and restructured it into an exuberant taste of southern comfort devoid of Black people. Even white people ask, ‘Where all the Black people at in Charleston?” It is totally incomprehensible for me to think that a man as brilliant as Joe Riley couldn’t figure out that his redevelopment of the city would displace Black people. As much as I like Lil Joe, I gotta think the city we have today was in his plan. And to add insult to injury, that same plan is being implemented in North Charleston just as it is being taught to another generation of usurpers in Joe Riley’s Charleston Politics 101 class at The Citadel.

Controversial Portland State Philosophy Professor and Religious Extremism Scholar Speak at Emory

Controversial philosopher Peter Boghossian and Assistant Professor at The Citadel (S.C.) Muhammad Fraser-Rahim spoke on topics ranging from combating religious extremism to the importance of civil debate between those on the political left and right. The April 26 event occurred at White Hall and attracted about 17 students. Boghossian, known for submitting a number of fake studies to peer-reviewed academic journals including those in gender studies, pointed to the publication of his falsified studies as evidence that these topics are not legitimate fields of academic study. Fraser-Rahim is the executive director of North America for Quilliam International, a group that works to rehabilitate former religious extremists and have “inclusive discussions to counter the ideological underpinnings of terrorism.” He spoke about the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) 2018 lawsuit against Quilliam in which SPLC alleged that the organization was an anti-Islamic extremist group. He argued that SPLC mislabeled Quilliam but has since redacted their original statement.

9. Aiken hands P-17 first loss of season, 8-0
It wasn’t like they weren’t warned. Following last Wednesday’s 10-2 win over visiting Aiken, which came one night after a 7-3 win over Post 26, the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team was told by head coach Stephen Carmon that Aiken was much better than what it showed in the first two games of League III play. Friday night, Post 26 made Carmon’s words prophetic as the hosts handed KC its first defeat of the season and, in a big way, with a 8-0 win over Post 17 in the third of four games between the two sides. KC sent out John Lanier who was making his first mound appearance since pitching in the the 5A state championship series three weeks earlier for Blythewood. The Citadel-bound lefty was tagged for six runs on as many hits with one strikeout in 2.1 innings of work.

One day in March 2018, a profile on the dating app Hinge caught Kathleen Bourque’s eye. The photo showed Conor McDowell, a tall, bright-eyed Citadel cadet in uniform. He was at a ring ceremony, his mother by his side. Kathleen, then 21, was moved to send Conor a message: “This is honestly such a beautiful photo.”

This article was also published by The Associated Press and syndicated by media outlets nationwide.

5. Hiking the Palmetto Trail
The Lake Marion Passage of the Palmetto Trail extends from the old U.S. 301 bridge at North Santee along the northern shore of Lake Marion in Clarendon County to Mill Creek Park in Sumter County. The Lake Marion Passage is one section of the nearly 500-mile-long trail that will traverse the state from the mountains to the sea. The trail corridor will run through the counties of Oconee, Pickens, Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, Union, Laurens, Newberry, Fairfield, Richland, Sumter, Clarendon, Orangeburg, Berkeley and Charleston. The Lake Marion Passage follows a portion of the Old River Road from Liberty Hill Church near St. Paul to just beyond Rimini. This section is steeped in history, beginning with the Liberty Hill Church, where the Civil Rights Movement began. The Richardson Cemetery lies just off this road. Two South Carolina governors and the founder of The Citadel are buried there.

5a. A circuitous route to her passion
Tindall McRae’s palms itched. A lot. There are many odd and uncomfortable – and, yes, sometimes even humiliating – things that happen to a woman’s body during pregnancy, but this itching seemed off. The doctor chalked it up to pregnancy weirdness. But the nurse wasn’t willing to let it go. She insisted on a blood test to check for a rare condition: intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. It’s a liver disorder in which bile builds up in the liver until it leaks into the bloodstream, and while it disappears upon delivery, it also can cause breathing problems for the new baby or even stillbirth. The blood test showed McRae was one of those few women with the condition. She was induced the very next day, and her son Howell was delivered at 35 weeks. She’s forever grateful to the nurse who spoke up. At the May 18 commencement ceremonies, McRae joins 291 other men and women who graduated from the MUSC College of Nursing this academic year. Born and raised in Walterboro, the “front porch of the Lowcountry,” McRae attended the College of Charleston. While in college, she met her husband, Chase, a Mullins boy who was attending The Citadel. They settled in her hometown. She became a special education teacher, and he became a youth minister and high school science teacher.

6. Legendary World War II major, who died on the way to St. Lo, France, has Greensboro connection
Jane Thomas is faithful to pass out American flags for the Daughters of the American Revolution during patriotic events in the Triad. During events at the Carolina Field of Honor, she spends a fair amount of her time gazing at memorial pavers. Particularly in the Army section and for good reason — her father, brother and cousin have memorial pavers therein. Each of the memorial’s 3,000 pavers tells a great story, but her cousin’s story lines up best with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day — the Invasion of Europe, which will be commemorated June 6. Thomas Dry Howie’s life was unfolding nicely. A star athlete in high school, he was an all-state halfback at the Citadel and captained the baseball team. In addition, he was a Rhodes Scholar finalist and president of his senior class (1929). During the 1930s, he married and had a daughter, but in the summer of 1941, his unit was activated as World War II became imminent. Howie’s division trained in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida before sailing for England — where they did even more training — in September 1942. The Citadel erected the Howie Bell Tower on campus. Citizens of St. Lo erected a memorial in his memory. As did his hometown, Abbeville, S.C. Howie was elected to the South Carolina Hall of Fame in 2003. According to Sen. Strom Thurmond, “He (Howie) was one of the state’s grandest sons.”

7. John Paul II Catholic School names Chris Myers as new football coach
Coming off its state runner-up finish, the John Paul II Catholic School football team has a new leader looking to keep the program near the top of SCISA. Chris Myers, who spent the last five seasons as head coach at Dorchester Academy, has been tabbed as the new coach of the Golden Warriors. The two-time state-championship player is ready to lead what he calls a very successful program. He replaces Kevin Wald, who stepped down in April to coach the team at Olympic Heights Community High School in Boca Raton, Fla. When it comes to his coaching philosophy, Myers, who graduated from The Citadel in 2007, is a defensive guy at heart but wants to have an equal balance of grit and agility on both sides of the ball. Myers won state titles in 1999 and 2001 as a player at Dorchester before going on to play at The Citadel. He then served as a graduate assistant with the Bulldogs in health exercise and sports science. He also spent five seasons coaching at Colleton County where he coached linebackers and defensive backs.

7a. Dozen Trojans sign to play college sports, including one whose career is 4 months old
Clayton Ballog, The Citadel There were several kids that signed Thursday who figured their sports careers would end when they graduated high school, including Ballog. But a Northwestern coach shared his film with The Citadel and their coaches were interested enough to offer Ballog a preferred walk-on spot. “I went down there, saw the school more, talked to players and they gave me a good vibe,” said Ballog. “I surprised myself!” Ballog said he’s excited to attend the Charleston-based military school, thinks he’ll thrive within the tradition and honor systems the school has in place. He plans to study military intelligence and then enter the Navy after college.

7b. Opelika’s James Dawson draws college attention
Opelika offensive lineman James Dawson had been waiting for his first scholarship offer for quite some time. Once he received it, it proved to be just the start of big things to come. Dawson has had a busy few days ever since the University of West Florida offered the 6-foot-1 rising senior a scholarship on May 23. The first offer seem to be a launching point for Dawson, as he quickly picked up additional offers from Davidson, Jacksonville University and Centre College. Dawson’s offers from West Florida and Davidson arrived in back-to-back days. Dawson said he was talking to Opelika assistant coach Ben Landers about a final exam when Dawson’s phone lit up. Once Dawson saw the message from a West Florida coach, a rush of joy came over him. Dawson’s schedule remains busy going into football season. He has already visited Kennesaw State, Troy, South Alabama, The Citadel, Samford, and Jacksonville State, and he plans to visit Davidson and West Florida soon. Dawson will also participate in a camp at Mercer this Saturday and plans to also camp at The Citadel, Davidson, Furman and Kennesaw State this summer.

8. Goffi-Kriese influences produce NCAA champion at South Carolina
This is about a skinny University of South Carolina junior who last weekend became the Gamecocks’ first NCAA Division 1 men’s tennis singles champion. Paul Jubb from Hull, England. How did it happen? It began with a noted tennis pro moving his family to Seabrook Island in 1979. Carlos Goffi’s family included young Josh Goffi. Josh was there when doubles great Peter Fleming was Seabrook’s touring pro. Josh got to spend a lot of time around some of the big names in the sport. His dad coached some of those big names, including Patrick McEnroe. College came soon and Josh chose Clemson, mainly because of then veteran Clemson coach Chuck Kriese. Now the head coach at The Citadel, Kriese was a central figure in the making of a national champion. “Chuck had a lot to do with Josh’s success,” Carlos Goffi said. “Josh didn’t have to go to Clemson. He had a lot of offers.”
