1. Fishable? Swimmable? Charleston waters in trouble
The water quality in the Charleston Harbor estuaries has been deteriorating for years, while the monitoring has fallen off and efforts to maintain it for fishing or swimming aren't stopping the degradation. Sewer system discharge, rain runoff and litter are increasing as population growth and development turn a coastal town into a city. Recent research is damning, finding pollutants such as flame retardants, stain repellents and plastics in the tissue of marine animals. The study, "Plastic to Microplastic: Decomposition of Three Common Plastic Polymers in a Salt Marsh Habitat," found the load is breaking down within four to eight weeks to microplastics that are absorbed by aquatic food like shrimp, and can kill them, the study found. "The eight-week finding suggests to me that these microscopic plastic fragments could potentially be harming the overall health of our ecosystems," said Cadet Brittany Crocker, who conducted The Citadel study with physiology professor John Weinstein.

2. Experts say IAM will likely look to ramp support from Boeing workers
The International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers withdrew its petition for a union election at Boeing's North Charleston plant Friday. The election has been postponed for at least six months. The Union is filing Unfair Labor Practice charges against Boeing, and claims two of its organizers were threatened at gunpoint by Boeing workers. That information comes from a release on the Union website. It says that while out on home visits to Boeing workers two were threatened at gunpoint and others said they had quote, "hostile and near-violent confrontations." IAM recently suspended those visits. While another election can be scheduled for some time after October, some business analysts believe the Machinists Union will start to try and ramp up even more support in the very near future. "The intensity with the way the union is attempting to do this shows their desperation," Richard Ebeling, Ph.D., a business professor at The Citadel, said.

3a. A war's lasting legacy, 150 years later
April 1865 was not Charleston's finest moment. By the time word reached the city that the Civil War had ended, the fighting had been over here for nearly two months. For four years, Charleston had suffered through the horrors of the War Between the States - a conflict that started at Fort Sumter. Since that first shot, the city had suffered more than 500 days of siege and shelling. A fire had destroyed much of downtown, and some of the rest had been burned by retreating Confederates. At 3 p.m., the Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust will host a memorial service for the Civil War dead at Hampton Park. The Citadel Chaplain Joel Harris will officiate, with remarks from Blight.

4d. Judo teachers earn national honor
The United States Judo Association inducted Summerville residents Dr. Lisa Capriotti and Robert Gouthro into the National Judo Hall of Fame as the Outstanding Judo Kata Competitors for 2014. They were selected based on successes in regional and national tournaments. Last year, they were chosen as one of five pairs to represent the United States at the World Judo Kata Championships in Malaga, Spain, where they finished highest among the American teams, placing eighth in their group and 14th overall. Kata forms are pre-arranged patterns of judo techniques practiced with a partner. Their purposes include illustrating basic principles of judo, demonstrating correct execution of techniques, teaching philosophical tenets upon which judo is based, and preserving ancient techniques historically important but no longer used in contemporary judo. A local ceremony took place at the Samurai Judo Association club located at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek. In July, the pair will officially be recognized at the National Judo Championships in Indianapolis. Capriotti and Gouthro are full-time educators in the Summerville and Charleston area. Dr. Capriotti teaches at The Citadel while Gouthro teaches seventh grade at Oakbrook Middle School. They are experts in four martial arts, having earned first degree black belts in both judo and jujitsu, third degree black belts in karate and second degree black belts in iaido, the art of the samurai sword. They continue to hone their skills teaching karate and judo at the American Judo and Jujitsu Academy in Summerville and judo, jujitsu, and karate at the Samurai Judo Association at the Naval Weapons Station.

4e. Rock legend stars at 'Wall of Honor' ceremony
A diverse and extraordinarily talented group of Bernards High School graduates were inducted into the school's "Wall of Honor" Sunday evening during a ceremony that featured a brief but rousing performance by a rock 'n' roll legend. Musicians, educators, a civil rights leader, award-winning entertainment professionals, an author and military historian, a former police chief and a current community philanthropist were among the nine graduates enshrined during the school's second annual induction ceremony at the BHS Performing Arts Center. The late military author Martin Blumenson, Class of 1935, was introduced by student Evan Underhill. Mr. Blumenson was an acclaimed military historian and author of some 19 books on World War II commanders and campaigns. He served in the Army under Gen. George Patton and went on to become the foremost expert on the life of Gen. Patton. He also taught at The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina.

5. POSSCON Successfully Reboots
Last week in Columbia, South Carolina, the developers' conference POSSCON went through something of a reboot. Last year the conference was cancelled to allow It-oLogy, the organization behind the event, to put its energy behind launching the Great Wide Open conference in Atlanta. This year, with last year's successful premiere of the Hotlanta event under its belt, IT-oLogy pulled-out all the stops to reestablish POSSCON. "Just a few of the schools included the University of South Carolina, Clemson University, College of Charleston, Midlands Technical College, UNC Charlotte, The Citadel, and many others," he added.

9b. Bulldogs Fall Victim to Strong UNCG Pitching
Ryan Clark allowed only two hits and tied his career high with 10 strikeouts, leading UNCG to a 5-0 win over The Citadel in the opening game of a Southern Conference series Friday evening in Greensboro. The teams will wrap up the series with a doubleheader on Saturday at 2 p.m. due to the strong likelihood of rain in the Piedmont Triad area on Sunday. Both ends of the twinbill can be seen on the SoCon Digital Network. The Bulldogs (16-19, 2-8 SoCon) got singles from Jacob Watcher in the second and Johnathan Stokes in the third but were held hitless the rest of the way as Clark recorded his second career complete game.

9c. Palm Valley's Conor Morley lands golf scholarship
For many high school athletes, the road to a college scholarship offer takes years of play and practice and looking for the right school. For Conor Morley, it took about three weeks. That's about the time between Morley, an 18-year-old senior at Palm Valley School in Rancho Mirage, telling his parents he had decided to play college golf and the Division II University of Hawaii-Hilo offering Morley a 50 percent scholarship for the 2015-16 school year. "I was actually committed to go to The Citadel, a military school (in South Carolina), and I decided I wanted to go play college golf," Morley said Friday after signing his letter of intent to attend Hawaii-Hilo. "So I started talking to schools."

3c. 175 Mile PTSD River Challenge Launch
A group of local veterans are about to embark on a journey to test their outdoor savviness, navigation skills, and arm strength. Tomorrow, 22 combat veterans will set out from the capital city on an 8-day river journey through South Carolina. The trip will take them from Riverfront Park 175 miles downstream to The Citadel in Charleston. Organizers of the trip say the number of veterans is significant because an average of 22 American veterans die each day from suicide due to post traumatic stress disorder. The hope is that those embarking on the adventure will have the change to connect with others facing similar challenges in their lives.

3d. Kelley Paul plans quiet role in husband Rand's 2016 campaign
Kelley Paul says she'll use her background as a political consultant to provide behind-the-scenes support to husband Rand's 2016 Republican presidential bid. In an interview at The Citadel on Thursday, Kelley Paul told The Associated Press that she doesn't plan to have a front office at campaign headquarters. Instead, the mother of three said she feels more comfortable working from home, intent on helping her husband with speechwriting and other ways to get his message out, something she's done since his 2010 senatorial bid.
