    NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt, Jr. opened up in a recent interview, discussing his strong opinions about the Confederate flag. When topic was raised by reporters at the Sonoma Raceway on Friday, the 40-year-old stock car driver did not bite his tongue when supporting the need to remove it. “I think it’s offensive to an entire race. It does nothing for anybody to be there flying, so I don’t see any reason.” Dale Earnhardt, Jr. further identified the one place where he feels the Confederate flag belongs and should remain. “It belongs in the history books and that’s about it.” USA...

    The city of Kannapolis is taking its "Dale Trail" banners down at the request of Castle & Cooke, the developers of the N.C. Research Center — and they won't be going back up. According to e-mails, California billionaire David Murdock, owner of Castle & Cook, is coming to town Saturday with a very important guest and wants to put the "best face on the city." The banners along with a statue in Cannon Village honor the town's most famous native, Dale Earnhardt, who died in a last lap wreck in the Daytona 500 in 2001. And according to the e-mails,...

    DAYTONA, FL - When you visit Orange Grove Baptist Church, the first thing you see is a lot of the number three. The number is on the cars, on the trucks, in the nursery, and even in the worship center. You may think, "Wow, they really like the Trinity here." They may, but that is not the reason for the ubiquitous 3. "We really like Dale Earnhardt, and we know he is part of 'Heaven's Racing Team,'" said deacon Frank Drake. This type of obsession is probably harmless in most places, but not in Daytona, a hotbed of NASCAR. However,...

    PLANT CITY - Roger Karr Jr.’s first wheels were a Chevy El Camino. In fact, he’s driven nothing but Chevys ever since. So it seemed only fitting that he named his first-born son after his favorite brand of car, with the name of his favorite NASCAR driver — Dale Earnhardt Jr. — thrown in for good measure. Chevy Dale Karr arrived at Brandon Regional Hospital on June 13. His father had been mulling over names for months, ever since a sonogram confirmed the baby was a boy. “I wanted something interesting,” the young father of two said of the moniker....

    Dale Noyd, a former U.S. Air Force captain and outspoken conscientious objector of the Vietnam War, died this month in Seattle at the age of 73. The decorated fighter pilot spent time in both federal and military court defending his right to oppose the Vietnam War, a decision he embraced up until his death on Jan. 11 from emphysema, The New York Times said. Noyd first took his antiwar efforts in front of a federal court in 1967, before having to defend his beliefs over a military court martial. Charged with refusing to train a pilot to serve in Vietnam,...

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Detroit Pistons center Dale Davis was shocked with a stun gun and charged with assault and disorderly conduct in an altercation with Miami Beach police. Davis was arrested Tuesday at a Miami Beach hotel and accused of threatening police, security guards and shouting profanities, police said. Chubby Wells, Davis' agent, said he plans to file a lawsuit against police for their treatment of the 15-year NBA veteran. "It was so ridiculous, it's unbelievable," Wells said. "We're going to take a stand." Police were called to the hotel by the security workers and Davis was repeatedly asked...

    March 20, 2006 - Fox has announced an early renewal for The Simpsons, and in a surprise move, has also renewed King of the Hill for an 11th season. This was expected to be the last season for Hill, and production had shut down on the animated series a year ago. However, Variety reports that Fox decided that the ratings were still strong enough to allow the show to continue. The entire staff of the show had moved out of their offices and on to other projects, but series creator Mike Judge was convinced to return after Fox was also...

    Monmouth Boy Scouts to Charge Annual Fee(MARLBORO, N.J.) The Monmouth Council of Boy Scouts will start charging a $52 annual membership fee, beginning March 15.

The group also is asking parents to match the fee with a voluntary donation. Families with more than one Boy Scout will get a 25 percent discount on each additional child. Membership in the Scouts has been on the decline in recent years. Monmouth...

    A three-judge panel overseeing Independent Counsel David Barrett's investigation into abuses by the Internal Revenue Service under the Clinton administration has ordered Barrett to make "discrete deletions" is the draft he submitted 15 months ago. The deletion order "has stoked speculation that [it] has more to do with the next presidential campaign," reports the Wall Street Journal, noting widespread rumors that "the draft report contains information potentially embarrassing to another Clinton administration figure, former first lady and current New York Sen. Hillary Clinton." "The one Clinton official rumored to be implicated in the report is former IRS Commissioner Margaret Richardson,...

    "King of the Hill" (search) creator Mike Judge (search) says this season, the show's 10th, will be its last. "There is an end in sight here," Judge told the Post Wednesday.

" But whatever the show's future, its fans are, no doubt, anticipating the upcoming Sept. 18 season premiere. "The only storyline we have right now is Luanne starts going out with this guy, Lucky. Tom Petty (search) does the voice," Judge said. "He's...

It says that the game is intended to entertain and to inform, and that it is nonpartisan.

    Resurrecting Dale, City of A Thousand Untold StoriesDale is one of those far-off places in Middle-earth that people sort of occasionally wonder about. Like many other aspects of Middle-earth, Dale has its mysteries and enigmas. Tolkien wrote two accounts of Dale's origins which contradict each other completely: Thorin told Bilbo, in The Hobbit, that in his grandfather Thror's time "men, who lived to the South [of Erebor], ... were gradually spreading up the Running River [and] ... they built the merry town of Dale there in those days."But in "Cirion and Eorl" (published in Unfinished Tales) Tolkien wrote in the...

    Blacklisting the Boy Scouts By: Mark Pulliam The Boy Scouts of America are under attack—again—this time from an unlikely source: the organized bar. Notwithstanding the 2000 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in Boy Scouts of America vs. Dale, affirming the constitutional right of the Boy Scouts to exclude avowed homosexuals as adult leaders, the battle is not over. Groups opposed to the traditional values espoused by the Boy Scouts continue their campaign of intimidation and pressure. In California, several local bar associations are seeking to ostracize the Boy Scouts by prohibiting state court judges from participating in the organization...

    LONG POND, Pa. (AP) -- Dale Jarrett ended a 30-race losing streak with a little luck over the final laps Sunday to win for the third time in his career at Pocono Raceway. Jarrett passed Robert Yates Racing teammate Ricky Rudd on the 195th of 200 laps, then won under caution after Rudd hit the wall with one lap to go. Rudd looked like the driver to beat, but had a late tire problem that made it easy for Jarrett. The victory in the Pocono 500 was the first for the 1999 Winston Cup champion since last July in Loudon,...
