1a. The President of The Citadel, Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa, to receive Chief Executive Leadership Award
Citadel President Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa has been selected to receive the Chief Executive Leadership Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III, which represents nine Southeastern states. The award will be presented during the CASE District III Conference on Feb. 7 in Nashville, Tennessee. Rosa received the award because of his keen focus on strategic initiatives that will enhance The Citadel's mission of developing principled leaders. A key emphasis for Rosa has been keeping a Citadel education relevant in the 21st century while holding to the values that make the college unique. Since Rosa's tenure as president began, The Citadel has increased the size of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and completed a $100 million capital campaign - two benchmarks of a vibrant institution. "President Rosa exemplifies the finest qualities of leadership - inspiring with vision and encouraging innovation, leading the institution to higher levels of success and supporting all aspects of institutional advancement - that CASE III is proud to recognize through its Chief Executive Leadership Award," said CASE III Board Chair, Kris Phillips. "He has led The Citadel with distinction for more than 10 years, challenging the entire campus community to address some difficult issues all while championing and building institutional morale and pride," continued Phillips.

2. Mother inspired N.J. teen to join local fire department
Kim Sargenti may not have finished from high school yet, but she did graduate from the Morris County Fire Academy this summer, paving the way for her to continue a life of service inspired by her school and family. Sargenti, a 17-year-old senior at Oak Knoll in Summit, took part in a four-week course held at the fire academy in Morristown, according to a news release. It included drills often while wearing more than 50 pounds of gear, as well as class work. She joined the Oldwick Volunteer Fire Company in Tewksbury Township as a junior member in September of 2015, and will be a full-fledged member of the company later this fall when she turns 18. She graduated from the academy on Aug. 22. Sargenti said she joined the department partly because of her mother's prior service as a paramedic. "She wanted me to experience the same life-changing service she had," Sargenti said. "She also knew I loved to volunteer for the community." Sargenti she she and her academy classmates bonded, and she values the lessons they learned together. "I will always remember my class motto: 'The Desire to Learn, The Determination to Excel, The Ability to Succeed, The Valor to Serve,' and use it as my backbone in life," she said. Sargenti said she is seriously considering attending The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina or the Virginia Military Institute, as well as other colleges and universities with ROTC programs.

5. For Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen, clutch is nothing new
The southern rasp in Lyman Guy's voice spikes when the conversation shifts to Dominique Allen. He pauses for moment, thinking back on his former quarterback, before enthusiastically starting again. "Well, you remember the touchdown he threw against Florida State, don't you?" Allen's high school football coach asks rhetorically. "And when they beat South Carolina? "That kid, he's got it. He understands it. He's a natural leader and he's comfortable in those situations. It's the fruits of his leadership and labor. And he's been doing that since Day 1." Allen has been a paradox of sorts for The Citadel this season. Not a starter but certainly a finisher. The past two weeks the junior quarterback has led game-winning touchdown drives in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against both Furman and Gardner-Webb. He's directed the late-game rallies like a poised, third-year veteran. But he's yet to start a game for the Bulldogs this season.

6. TD CLUB: Citadel's Thompson says be a good teammate
Contrasting coaching situations were discussed at Thursday's meeting of the Orangeburg Touchdown Club at The Cinema. South Carolina State head football coach Buddy Pough spoke of his team's 0-3 start on the road against three Football Bowl Subdivision programs, including last Saturday's 59-0 shutout loss at No. 5 Clemson. After Pough spoke, he introduced first-year Citadel head football coach Brent Thompson, who is 3-0 and enjoying his first bye week as a college head coach. "I think everybody knows that Clemson is pretty good," Pough said with a smile. "I guess when they get through playing Georgia Tech and then get ahold of that Louisville team in a week or so, we'll get a better understanding of what the ACC is all about this season. "It's all a blur for us now, with this recent three-game stretch. Now we need to show some actual improvement with the way we've played and get after our league (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), starting with Florida A&M in Tallahassee this Saturday."

3. Economic Ideas: Plato, Aristotle, and the Ancient Greeks, Part 1
The ancient Greeks left a wealth of knowledge through their surviving writings on a wide variety of themes, including science, logic, philosophy, literature, and the arts. In addition, the city-state of Athens is considered the birthplace of intellectual freedom and democracy - lasting legacies that helped to mold the ideas that have influenced the development of Western Civilization. But, in comparison, their discussions on economics were often few and almost always relatively unsystematic. A primary reason for this is due to the fact that for the ancient Greeks questions concerning "economics" were considered subservient to other themes considered far more crucial to human life and society. For the Greek philosophers and social thinkers, the central themes were questions of "justice," "virtue," "the good," and "the beautiful." What today we call "economic" questions and problems were relegated to a narrow corner of evaluating how economic institutions and organization could be designed or modified to serve these "higher" ends or goals. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the recently appointed BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel.

4. Upping nutrition at food banks no piece of cake (photo)
Concerns about food bank clients' nutrition aren't new, although they've intensified since the latest recession, when the number of people depending on soup kitchens and food pantries surged by nearly 50 percent. During that period, many Americans' relationships with food banks changed: Caught in unrelenting personal financial crises, they visited food banks again and again, rather than solely in case of emergency. Feeding America data shows food bank clients, on average, seek assistance eight times a year. "We're learning that there are more people who rely on us for sustenance on a regular basis," a Feeding America spokesman told Civil Eats. "If people are going to rely on a significant amount of their food coming from us, we had better be sure we're not contributing to illnesses."

6. Citadel, Charleston Southern stage epic volleyball point
The ball crossed the net 25 times, was touched 74 times and stayed in the air for almost 90 seconds. When the epic point was over, Charleston Southern player Madison Martin fell to her knees in exhaustion, while teammate Rachel Smith raised her hands in joy. Charleston Southern won the point, but The Citadel won the match last Saturday that produced what might be the longest point in NCAA Division I volleyball this season. The point, which lasted one minute and 26 seconds, came in the third set of the Bulldogs' 21-25, 25-14, 26-24, 25-17 victory at McAlister Field House last Saturday night. In a Twitter poll conducted by NCAA Volleyball, it was voted the national play of the week, gathering 40 percent of 2,095 votes. USA Volleyball's list of longest volleyball rallies on YouTube includes no college matches that had a longer rally time than The Citadel/CSU's 1:26, and none that included more than 74 contacts. Only one college match on the list, between Illinois and Southern Cal in 2011, had more net crossings, with 27.

5. The Citadel's Schoultz honored by SoCon
The Citadel's DeAndre Schoultz has been named the Southern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Schoultz returned five punts for 120 yards, including an 81-yard return for a touchdown, in The Citadel's 31-24 win at Gardner-Webb. On the final play of the third quarter, the senior from Aiken, South Carolina, registered the first punt return touchdown by a Bulldog since Andre Roberts in 2008 to give The Citadel a 21-17 leading heading into the final 15 minutes. Schoultz's return is the third-longest punt return in program history and the longest since a program-record 89 yarder by Jeff Varnadoe in 1971. Schoultz currently has the longest punt return in the Southern Conference and third-longest punt return in FCS in 2016. His 120 total punt return yards are the most in FCS against a Division I opponent this season. Schoultz claimed a conference weekly honor for the first time in his career and is the third Bulldog in the first three weeks to be recognized by the conference office. B-Back Tyler Renew was named Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 146 yards and one touchdown in the season opener at Mercer, and defensive back Dee Delaney was named Defensive Player of the Week after grabbing two interceptions in week two against Furman. The Citadel is the only program with an Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week in 2016.

6. The Citadel moves into top 10 in two polls
The Citadel football team moved up into the top 10 of both major FCS Top 25 polls released Monday. The Bulldogs are ranked 10th in the STATS and Coaches polls after being ranked 15th in each poll last week. The Citadel is ranked in the top 10 for the first time since 2012 when the Bulldogs spent one week at No. 10 after defeating Appalachian State. The Citadel previously had not been ranked in the top 10 since spending the majority of the 1992 season in the top 10, including four weeks at No. 1. The Bulldogs have been ranked for nine straight weeks dating back to the 2015 season, which is the program's second-longest streak in the top 25 since records are available beginning with the 1990 season. The school record for consecutive weeks ranked is 15 from 1992-93. The Bulldogs improved to 3-0 this season with a 31-24 win at Gardner-Webb on Saturday night. The Citadel has started 3-0 for only the ninth time in program history, and head coach Brent Thompson is one of two Bulldog head coaches to win the first three games of his head coaching career.
