While a student at Columbia’s Benedict College, Capleton started a Facebook group called “I Ain’t Afraid to be on Food Stamps." ...

Other basic training installations are picking up the slack for a time, and there will be no slide in the overall number of recruits entering the service, according to Fort Jackson’s chief operating officer. ...

Nature Rx

Long before we popped aspirin for headaches, American Indians chewed twigs from willow trees. And before antibiotics, they drank a natural concoction known as Mexican tea to oust parasites in the digestive tract.  Did the remedies work? "Some did and some didn't," says Dr. Richard Porcher, biology professor emeritus at The Citadel. Porcher will give an encore of his talk, Lowcountry Folk Remedies & Pharmacology: A History, at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Sewee Visitor and Environmental Education Center, 5821 U.S. Highway 17, Awendaw. The event is free. More at 928-3368 or www.fws.gov/seweecenter.

Not Another Civil War

In the early morning of April 12, 1861, Confederate soldiers, outnumbering their counterparts 100 to 1 by at least one account, began their assault on Fort Sumter. The island fortress had been the last bastion for Union troops since South Carolina's dramatic secession nearly four months earlier on the Charleston peninsula. While the cannon attack on Fort Sumter is recognized as the "official" start of the war, local historians note a prologue — a Citadel cadet assault on a Union supply vessel called the Star of the West in January 1861. The school still honors a cadet each year with a Star of the West medal.  ...
