1. For a Belfast nonagenarian veteran, life continues as a service to others
At age 92, Carmine Pecorelli, of Belfast, continues to put others ahead of himself. This time, he is offering a kidney to a fellow graduate of the Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. A firm believer of the military motto "Life is for Service," Pecorelli has recently been cleared by his general practitioner for this next deed before his ultimate organ donation at the time of his death. After initial testing, Pecorelli's practitioner told him that health-wise, he has the body of a 55-year-old. Not so of the Citadel graduate, class of 1960, he'd met at an alumni meeting. William B. Gillespie, Esq. of Topsham, having once represented Pecorelli in court litigation, told him, during the courtroom process, about his failing kidneys. "You don't look so well," Pecorelli said to his attorney. "What's up?" Pecorelli thought of his friend's need for a kidney as he drove home. Already committed to full organ donation after death, Pecorelli asked himself: "Why should I wait to give something away? So I called him and I said, Bill, 'I'd like to offer you one of my kidneys.' And he went silent." The paperwork still has to be processed. Further testing is needed to confirm him as a match. The attorney's ability to withstand the new organ will be considered.

5. Berkeley students storm The Citadel and take over the Charleston STEM Festival
It's Career and Technical Education Month and students in Berkeley County School District (BCSD) brought it in with a bang. The Storm the Citadel competition, hosted by the Citadel on Feb. 11, and the Charleston STEM Festival at Brittlebank Park allowed students to display their STEM talents. "I am incredibly proud of our BCSD students and grateful for the faculty and staff who came and assisted our students," said BCSD Director of Career and Technical Education Tana Lee. "I look forward to these two events every year because I enjoy seeing the excitement on our student's faces as they compete in Storm the Citadel and assist with the STEM Festival.

6. Bulldog Bites: For Citadel, better baseball and beer would pair well
Citadel fans of a certain age will be able to sip a cold beer while watching their favorite baseball team play at Riley Park this season. But it's a good bet that at least some of those fans would trade in a clear, 12-ounce cup of suds for a few more victories this season. Nobody wants to suffer through another 17-42 season like last year's, especially veteran coach Fred Jordan. Jordan's efforts at retooling his program - including bringing in four transfers, led by former West Ashley High School star Jonathan Sabo - will get their first examination this weekend. Kansas, Virginia and Liberty visit Riley Park for the season-opening Charleston Crab House Challenge. The key to climbing back toward the upper division of the Southern Conference, Jordan said, lies in starting pitching. And that centers on a quartet made up of juniors J.P. Sears and Thomas Byelick and freshmen Will Pillsbury and Will Abbott. Sears (5-7, 5.27 ERA last year) and Byelick (1-7, 5.32 ERA) both struggled in SoCon play last year, both with ERAs over 7.00. Pillsbury, a 6-2 lefty, and Abbott, a 6-2 right-hander, are battling for the Sunday starter spot, with the fourth man likely to be a mid-week starter. "We've got to have starting pitching," said Jordan, who has won seven SoCon tournaments and five regular-season titles in his career. "We feel like J.P. is a quality starter, and Byelick we think has stepped through the door, so to speak. Both have had their ups and downs, but we feel like both can be quality starters on the weekend.

7. New Blythewood football coach worked in the business world until 2012
Brian Smith imagined his life would be different if he had continued to work in the financial world. The new Blythewood football coach was a commodities broker for two years before getting back into back into coaching, a decision he doesn't regret. "I was doing well. Made more in month than in a year as a teacher, but I still had a hole in my heart," Smith said. "I would have had a different life if I stayed in business but a less impactful life. I would have missed out on a lot of things that the good Lord didn't want me to miss out on. I just couldn't live without football." Smith said his experience in business, which also included a stint as a project manager for Gamble & Stuckey and then later as president of Caillech Funds, helped shape him. At Caillech Funds, Smith said they traded everything from hogs and silver to gold and soybeans. "It prepares you for pressure. You never felt more pressure than when you are dealing with other people's money," Smith said. Smith will be one of 10 new coaches in the Midlands next season with three in Region 5-5A, joining River Bluff's Blair Hardin and Lexington's Perry Woolbright. The 39-year-old grew up in Massachusetts and was a big fan of Boston-area sports teams. He remembers going with his grandpa to New England Patriots and Boston College games. Smith was a football standout at Lynn Classical High School. He tore his ACL during his senior season and ended up going Fork Union Military Academy, which has turned out several NFL players. Smith spent one season at Fork Union and was teammates with former Giants and Steelers receiver Plaxico Burress before landing at The Citadel, where he played linebacker and later was an assistant coach for two seasons.

1. The Citadel's Beach Club on Isle of Palms reopening after fire, college says
The Citadel Beach Club is reopening after a fire gutted the Isle of Palms event venue last year. The military college will host officials and first responders from the Isle of Palms at an event marking the reopening later this month, and the Citadel said Tuesday it's now taking reservations for wedding receptions, corporate functions and other events. An overnight blaze last May ripped through all three floors of the venue, and the damage required extensive repairs, including replacing its plumbing and wiring and building a new roof. Renovations were delayed by Hurricane Matthew and a few tropical storms last year, the college said, but they were completed in around nine months.

Tom Philipkosky, the college's senior vice president for operations and administration.

1. A day of fun, science and engineering at Storm The Citadel trebuchet contest
Cross High School senior John Roderick and his teammates smiled as they gathered around a throne at Sumerall Field to celebrate their victory. The small team from Cross, in rural Berkeley County, won first place for distance in the high school division of the annual Storm The Citadel trebuchet competition. Thousands of students in teams from around the Lowcountry gathered Saturday at the college after spending months designing and building the medieval siege weapons. "It feels really good, especially since this is Cross' first year," Roderick said. "I'm really excited I got to lead them. I feel like if everything goes the way it's been going, they'll be tough competitors in the future." The team built their trebuchet over three days in December and continued to make adjustments and other fine tuning leading up to the competition, he said. Storm The Citadel was founded in 2011 by Google and The Citadel's School of Engineering to reinforce the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math. Teams from middle school, high school and college/professional divisions squared off in competitions based on distance and accuracy of shots fired. The "Barbarian" division, made up of two teams from Google and Boeing, put on displays and fired water bottles, bags of flour and other items from their two massive trebuchets. Jeff Stevenson, a Citadel graduate and Google employee, founded and organizes the event.

4. Adjuncts seek a collective voice to pursue reform
The challenges part-time or adjunct faculty face have been well documented. Low pay. Few, if any benefits. No guarantee of work. But some adjunct faculty in Northeast Ohio and across the country are trying to use their numbers to change that. Often, adjuncts are afraid to try to unionize because they fear for their jobs, said Maria Maisto, president of Akron-based education and advocacy group New Faculty Majority. And in Ohio, there's a lot of confusion around whether adjuncts can unionize at all. The law is written so adjuncts can't compel a public employer to bargain with them, Maisto said. But they can try to persuade them, and faculty at private institutions face no such restrictions. When Maisto started teaching as an adjunct in Northeast Ohio a little more than a decade ago, the work conditions - everything from the lack of pay to a shortage of support - surprised her. She felt like adjuncts couldn't even take part in conversations about curriculum. "It was quite a rude awakening," Maisto said... She began her academic life as a tenure-track faculty member at The Citadel in South Carolina but began working as an adjunct in 2003, when she and her partner moved to Northeast Ohio. Bruce said the transition didn't bother her at first, though she knew it would be difficult to advance as an adjunct; but over time, she began to realize how "exploitative" the employment model was.
