DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - In what may always be considered a mystical performance, Dale Earnhardt Jr. charged from sixth place with five laps to go last night to win the Pepsi 400 and set off an amazing celebration. It was the first Winston Cup Series race here at Daytona International Speedway since Dale Earnhardt died in a last-lap crash in the Daytona 500 in February while seeming to usher his two drivers - Earnhardt Jr. and Michael Waltrip - to the top two spots. That day in February, it was Waltrip who won and Earnhardt Jr. who finished second as Earnhardt crashed into the fourth wall.

AND SO, Father's Day rolls around again, a day that has always held a special significance for me and, until a few years ago, for Tom Francis Richissin, my dad. My father died a bit more than six years ago, when I was 31. He was a pretty good father. He coached his sons in baseball, football and basketball. He was a police officer, an honest one, a man of integrity. He put food on the table and kept enough order in a chaotic house that my four brothers and I were expected to be home to eat supper together, as a family.

He couldn't bring himself to drive down the street of his 84-year-old father's old house, a mere three blocks from his Arbutus home. "It was more than I had expected," recalls Jim, a job counselor to disabled people.

FORT LEE, N.J. - The next time you feel like complaining about the neighbors, consider what George Di Bouno has to put up with. His closest neighbor is a huge pile of salt. It moved in next door about 20 years ago. In winter, front loaders growl around the yard in front of the salt pile 24 hours a day. Whenever they back up, they emit a sleep-bedeviling series of beeps. Not long after the pile of salt moved in, a hulking concrete salt hopper took up residence just beyond Di Bouno's back yard.
