Coming Saturday on the editorial page

The Star's editorial board is a big fan of the NASCAR races at Talladega Superspeedway -- proud that they're in our part of the state, at least -- and is tackling the issue of Calhoun Countians who aren't fans of the races.
You tire of the traffic. You hate the interminable waits at the overcrowded restaurants in Oxford. Got a bunch of family and friends coming in town this weekend who need hotel rooms? Forgetaboutit. And you despise the fact that you seemingly can’t go anywhere on Interstate 20 on race-day Sundays.
Here’s a message:
Get over it.
The point: The races are great for our county's coffers.

We'll also have our regular letters to the editor and a column by Philadelphia Inquirer writer Trudy Rubin.
