Citadel mess

Knobs--4th classmen--have always had to pop off at mess. Originally they could be asked any question. They would come over to the library to find the answer. Later, in the 1970's, the questions were limited to facts pertaining The Citadel in some way. Since the same questions were asked from year to year the librarians kept a box of 3 x 5 cards with the answers. This later was put in paper format and in 1976 it was put on the computer. It has expanded to include all sorts of Citadel lore and history. Tenatively, a question could be asked about any of the topics, but most of the information will never be asked by knobs. It will be asked by administrators and others. Alumni appear to read it thoroughly and even people who have no connection with The Citadel keep sending comments. At mess, the answering and asking of questions was at one time called, "stump the stars." Today, Knob Knowledge is restricted to what can be found under "M. Fourth Class Knowledge" in the The Fourth Class Knowledge Manual. The Knob Knowledge file on the Daniel Library Web site was originally created by LTC Herbert T. Nath.-

tiny houses

In March 2004 Cities Ranked and Rated listed Charlottesville VA as the best place in the US to live.

The ranking was questionable but with the announcement damage was done.


The greed on display in this region now is staggering, breath-taking.

My neighborhood, the red-headed step-child of local planners, is taking a beating.
This has been a low density rural neighborhood since the establishment of the woolen mill village in 1830.

Currently, within 100 yards of my house, two developers hope to build 40 units. The units don't serve the neighborhood's needs, they don't reflect the neighborhood structure. The proposed growth is cancerous in nature.

Cash in the chips.
