As a teenager, Richard Shepler loved to play paintball in the woods near his Bel Air home. The game, where players fire balls of paint from compressed-air guns to eliminate opponents, is a “pure adrenaline rush,” Shepler says. “The draw is you get to shoot somebody and not go to jail,” Shepler says. “And it's a great team-building sport. If you don't work together, you usually don't win.” As his experience level and passion for the hobby grew, so did his equipment: Paintball guns, paint capsules, loaders to store the capsules, goggles, jerseys and masks.  That's why in 2011, Shepler, a former Department of Defense contractor, and his wife, Maggie, decided to open their own paintball supply and service store.

CAPTURING the spirit of a child's life at the turn of this century will be the challenge of first-graders at Crofton Woods Elementary School who are preparing individual time capsules. Each youngster has been gathering items that demonstrate what is important to him or her. Family pictures, toys, 1999 coins and stamps are being collected. Erika Fregger is saving a dollar bill. Megan Fortman's collection includes some jaunty "2000" eyeglasses from New Year's Eve. Edward Yost's capsule will hold a booklet he wrote about his first week of school.

The nationwide recall of Sudafed 12-Hour Cold Capsules, after two deaths and a serious injury were linked to cyanide-laced capsules, could accelerate the disappearance of over-the-counter capsule medicines and lead to a ban on such forms of medicine by the Food and Drug Administration.At the very least, the action may raise questions for companies and consumers about whether they should steer clear of capsules.Events of the last few days have provoked new discussions at the FDA on banning the use of capsules in over-the-counter medicines, according to Jeff Nesbit, chief spokesman for the agency.

ATLANTA -- Stashing time capsules seems like a good idea to the history-conscious, but for years the practice has been afflicted with fundamental flaws: The things get lost. Or stolen. Or otherwise disconnected from posterity.Take the Kingsley Dam time capsule. In 1941, it was buried as part of the dedication ceremonies on Lake McConaughy in Nebraska. The copper capsule was lowered into a casing 100 feet inside the 162-foot-tall, 3-mile-long dam. The plan was to open it 100 years later.This year, when officials wanted to display the capsule during a ceremony marking the dam's 50-year anniversary -- you guessed it -- they couldn't find it. A plaque detailing its location supposedly was sent to the state capitol for safekeeping, but nobody knows what happened to the plaque.
