Troopers investigating the incident about 4:00 p.m. determined that the driver, 19-year-old Kareem Morsi of Woodbine, had been heading north on a white 2008 Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle when he tried to pass the two vehicles. Just north of Exit 33, the motorcycle struck the rear of one of the vehicles, police said, spun out of control, crossed the right shoulder and struck a guardrail.

It was ironic for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to use the term "Native Americans" recently when referring to descendants of the indigenous peoples who inhabited this continent before Europeans arrived ( "Redskins name controversy heats up with federal cancellation of trademark," June 18). Those native peoples would never call themselves "Americans. " The name "Americus" (Latin for America) was heavily inked onto early maps of the "New World" in large part as a promotional advertisement for a European adventurer and explorer named Amerigo Vespucci.

On April 1, with only a few changes of clothes, a tent, a hammock, a cellphone and a bicycle, Payne will embark on the greatest journey of his young life: a 9,000-mile bike ride across the country and back - alone. While plenty of people pedal coast to coast each year, not many set out with a mission as noble as the Parkton native's. In honor of his older brother, Jacob, who was diagnosed with Williams syndrome in 1995, Payne will trek the country raising awareness for the genetic condition also known as WS. "I wouldn't be the person I am without Jake in my life," Payne, 18, said.

I absolutely support unions when it is appropriate, and I would fight for union representation when it's appropriate. What I disagree with is the concept of "union shops" where all employees must pay dues whether they belong to the union or not ( "Paying one's dues," Jan. 23). Free enterprise should be on both sides of the economy. If a union is appropriate, then let there be a union. But that doesn't mean that it is appropriate for all the workers within the designated work force.

It was nice to see such an outpouring of respect from all the politicians and dignitaries who attended Nelson Mandela's funeral ("Mandela's 'long walk is over,'" Dec. 11).
