  • Nosey says ...

    Now is a good time to contact your legislators and tell them what a good job they are doing holding costs down. Their fantastic wisdom predicted seniors would not need a cost of living increase in 2010-2011. After all, the only thing that went up in 2010 was gas, Medicare, food, house insurance, car insurance and medicine. Seniors require a great deal more medication than we did when we were only 45 or 55.

    By Monte Dutton

    NASCAR This Week

     

    When I first began writing about NASCAR, the track in North Wilkesboro had 60,000 seats. Then Bruton Smith and Bob Bahre carved it up as if they were diplomats playing Monopoly with conquered land, and the capacity was revealed to be 37,000. Same when International Speedway Corporation got its hands on Martinsville and alleged attendance dropped by a third even though the grandstands remained the same.
