5The Citadel eliminated from SoCon tournament in 6-5 loss to Western Carolina

The final game of Tony Skole's first season as The Citadel's baseball coach went about the same way the season did. The eighth-seeded Bulldogs fought hard in the play-in game of the Southern Conference Tournament in Greenville, battling back from a deficit to tie the game three times against No. 9 Western Carolina on Tuesday at Fluor Field. But in the end, The Citadel couldn't get the one big hit it needed, and a ninth-inning error opened the door for Western Carolina to take a 6-5 victory and eliminate the Bulldogs from the tourney.

1He served his country, his state, his town. This is Brian McNally, trooper killed in car crash

The New Jersey State Trooper who died in an off-duty crash always knew he wanted to serve in the military and had dreamed of taking over his hometown police department as chief one day.

McNally, 30, of Bedminster, was driving east on I-78 in Berks County, Pa., around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, coming home from weekend duty with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. As traffic slowed, he moved to switch lanes and struck a tractor trailer, which caught fire along with his SUV, according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

McNally was a graduate of Morristown High School, where he played football. He received a scholarship to study at Citadel Military Academy in Charleston, South Carolina, his father said.

3Tariff walls and trade wars equal government planning

Trade wars are dangerous and harmful policies for governments to pursue. They hurt consumers due to higher prices and fewer alternatives; they reduce competitive opportunities for producers by restricting markets; and they narrow the benefits that come from a market-based system of division of labor in which each participant tends to devote his or her efforts to supplying the goods or services in which they may have the greatest comparative advantage for the best economic gain to themselves and for those with whom they trade.

3South Carolina hopes to keep flag from Iowa collection permanently

Buried deep in Iowa's state historical museum, there is a treasure trove of artifacts.There's also a collection of 210 flags Iowans captured during the Civil War, including a large red flag adorned with the South Carolina Palmetto on it, known as "Big Red." But that flag has been housed in South Carolina since 2010.

"At times we’ve loaned them out to Iowa museums and museums across the United States," said Leo Landis, state curator at the museum in Des Moines.

Now South Carolina wants to keep it indefinitely. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster penned a letter to Governor Kim Reynolds in April asking for the flag to remain in the state permanently, calling the flag "embedded into the tradition and history" of the Citadel cadets.
