Roller derby rolls on

Women clad in fishnets, American flag pants, paint-covered shirts, helmets and kneepads whiz around the skating rink, smashing into each other’s hips, often sending someone onto the ground.

A man in the crowd on the outskirts of the rink, standing up from his lawn chair, yells “knock her out,” and some five referees blow their whistles intermittently.
It’s Sunday evening at Wheels Fun Park in Durham. It’s the Chapel Thrillers vs. Raleigh Ruckus bout in roller derby, one of the fastest growing sports in the world.

A parents’ legacy – tomato diplomacy, sharing our bounty

Some of my favorite childhood memories are of wandering in my father’s garden: beds of vegetables and strawberries dug into our suburban lot, next to my swing set. I was such a glutton for peas in the pod and berries that my father planted an extra row of each for me to consume raw. The rest were off limits until my mother sent me to pick whatever was ripe for supper. After we had washed the carrots, lettuce, or beans, I received samples. If I hadn’t been an only child, the rules might have been stricter. Or the garden might have been larger.
