Why settle for less?

Jim DenHamer

Everything isn’t always as advertised. Let’s face it. How many times have you spent your hard-earned money to buy a movie ticket, grabbed that $20 box of popcorn and $8 soda and settled in for what you thought was going to be “the funniest movie of the summer” only to realize about halfway through the film that they used up all the funny clips while making the trailers for the flick?

At that point you’re left wishing you’d pocketed the $40 you spent and waited a few months until the MORE

Spats then and now

Jason Shank

A couple days before the start of last weekend’s Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com weekend at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., World of Outlaws Late Model Series traveler Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa. — a quick-witted guy who’s always busting the chops of his buddies — stood in the pit area at Weedsport (N.Y.)

Pieces of the pie

The announcement a week or so back that Duck River Raceway Park was taking the month of June off was a little surprising. It wasn’t bang-your-head against the wall shocking, just a little surprising.

Most of us have heard the low-car-count horror stories from our racing buddies or read of the demise of Dirt Late Model racing on Internet message boards. It happens year in, year out. Car counts are dropping. What are we to do?

I don’t have a definitive answer. For one, I’m not actually sure MORE

What's in a date?

I love dates.

No, not the dried fruit, but the four-digit numbers that mark important years in history. I love remembering them. I love guessing the year of a song or a movie. I love knowing the years of Kentucky Derby winners and presidential elections and 100-meter champions at the Olympics. I simply love dates.

I know, I know, a million educational studies have shown that rote memory — like recalling names and dates — isn’t the best way to learn something. But dates are important in MORE
