Today, readers will notice a story by Sports Editor Tom Didato on the front page regarding the Carolina Cup. Basically, the Cup appears to be in good shape. Not only are ticket sales significantly up but most of them are already sold. 

The Cup also received an important shot in the arm with the announcement of the two main corporate sponsors for this year. Best of all, those sponsors, The Mullikin Law Firm and Blue Cross/Blue Shield, are local.

This, to us, is very important. Not only does it show that locals support the long-time and iconic spring event and recognize its economic and aesthetic importance to this community and this state, but it shows the organization itself can embrace and institute change when it is needed. 

To say times have been interesting is something of an understatement -- it’s been tough all over, and we all know it. We also know it can be challenging to tweak tradition and established procedure.

But, however one feels about it, change is inevitable. Being proactive is pretty much the only way to successfully deal with it.

So, we thank those who have done what needs to be done and we look forward to many great days at the races to come.
