Terry Caulder, a 44-year-old former North Charleston police officer, was injured while working as a private contractor in Iraq 12 years ago and has been fighting a 10-year battle — with lots of paperwork — with insurance companies.
When the first bomb went off, Terry Caulder shifted his body to reach for the door of the Humvee, moving to slam it shut. That might have saved his life when the second bomb exploded.

We didn’t get quite as many submissions as we had hoped for “Sailing Lowcountry Waters,” but we loved what we got.

The first nesting turtle of the year, a leatherback, crawled out of the sea at Pompano Beach, Fla., on March 10. South Carolina nesting usually begins a couple weeks after Florida.
Sometime in the next few weeks, a gargantuan will paddle out of the surf, dig out a hole in the sand, and lay the first of thousands and thousands of sea turtle eggs in the Lowcountry dunes this season. This could be another big nesting year in an ap

The zoning change — if approved later this spring and summer — ultimately could result in a protracted legal fight that will decide the fate of the Beach Co.’s site just west of Moultrie Playground and Colonial Lake.
The property named to honor one of Charleston’s leading Revolutionary War heroes is now enmeshed in an epic battle over its future.

The poster selected this year is by Charleston native Tug Mathisen. It’s called “Jukebox Gate” and it’s inspired by the ironwork and architecture of the city. It features a picturesque brick and cement gate with ironwork configured into musical shapes. It is the entryway to a city alive with art and culture.

Corporate wellness programs aren’t new, but historically, some of them have been considered little more than “fluff” efforts to encourage healthy behavior. No one ever really gauged whether they worked.
Hubner Manufacturing was spending $50,000 a month on health insurance premiums for its 90 or so employees.
