    Perhaps he heard about it in the newspaper, buried in the WBTM "Radio Ramblin's" community notebook on Page 11. The radio station's call letters stood for "World's Best Tobacco Market" or "World's Biggest Textile Mill," depending on which of the town's primary industries was closest to your heart. So it may not have been a big deal for most, sitting below the paper's fold, after the news about celebrations planned for Dan River Mills' 75th anniversary, below how many TV sets Vaughan Supply sold the previous week, and underneath flashy ads for cowboy westerns at the Rialto Theatre on Main Street.

  9. Welcome back, Kurt BuschRead the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | Bladen Journal

    If I had to list the drivers people have asked me about over the years, Kurt Busch wouldn't be in the top 10. I've internally debated what my response should be. Do I defend NASCAR's decision to suspend Busch from racing for a couple of weeks while waiting for a court's decision on whether or not to bring criminal charges against him? Do I loudly decry violence against women - or against anyone, for that matter - for the whole wide world to hear? Do I decline to say anything at all? Most importantly, does it even matter what I think? Call it self-congratulatory, but I haven't heard many women sticking up for Kurt, so I kind of think it might.
