By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer LOUDON, N.H. -- Greg Biffle began the Chase for the championship as a long shot. At best.

Taking a trip down memory lane (09/14/08)
To the Editor: I would like to take this time to congratulate The Brazil Times for the great job they do on reporting the news, sports, weather, etc. I would also like to thank them for publishing my letters and allowing me to give my opinions on certain subjects, past, present or future, unlike some newspapers I have dealt with without mentioning any names, but although I have nothing against them personally, it seems like they don't believe in the words fair and balanced or equal opportunity. ...
