They All Get Giddy on a Monday Night

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The no-frills Daytona 500 got off to a colorful start on Monday night, mainly because the dude with his hands on the plunger set off the fireworks early. On the start, Matt Kenseth bump-drafted Greg Biffle while everyone else played nice ... for slightly more than a lap. The bump draft worked out nicely. Behind the streaking Fords at the front caromed the five-time champion, the previous winner, the banished bad boy and ... The Danica. Contact between Elliott Sadler's plebeian Chevy and Jimmie Johnson's royal one touched off the bottle rockets. The last time a driver began a championship season with a 500 victory was Johnson in 2006. Since then he has finished no better than 27th. Next up for the winner of five of the past six titles: He and crew chief Chad Knaus try to duck the book being hurled at them by the always arbitrary NASCAR judiciary. "I'm really bummed out," said Johnson, and he wasn't insincere. He said he had some "help" from behind, which is an odd way for destruction to be described. Johnson still earned $327,000 dollars, or about $163,000 per lap. Lots of times, rained-out races seem restrained when everyone comes back and reconjures the magic. In particular, it's usually later than the second lap when someone touches off a brawl of sparks and fire. Rain apparently isn't calming when it's the Daytona 500 and first place is worth $1.5 million or so. Eleven laps later Ryan Newman went spinning down the back straight, but he had a signed excuse because a tire went flat.

Then there's Danica Patrick, who, as usual, got more attention than Tony Stewart, Lenny Kravitz and Mitt Romney combined. She won a Nationwide Series pole, but otherwise competed in three races -- two major-league and one minor -- and wrecked a league-leading 1.000. It will undoubtedly get better, in large mea- A second-lap wreck at the rain-delayed Daytona 500 took out 5-time Sprint Cup champion sure because it is impos- Jimmie Johnson and damaged Danica Patrick's car enough to effectively take her out of the race. (Getty Images for NASCAR photo) sible for it not to. It seemed like yesterday when Trevor Bayne won the race, but this time Bayne barely made it a lap. The Kurt Busch Resurrection Tour went on immediate hiatus. It's one of the reasons NASCAR insists on having 43 cars in every race. Sometimes the big shots charge the barricades too quickly and reinforcements are necessary. ••• Quotable Quotes: "I think we (he and Greg Biffle) did everything we could at the end." -- runner-up Dale Earnhardt Jr. "If I knew something, do you think I'd tell you?" -- Matt Kenseth, asked why he was able to stay ahead of Earnhardt and Biffle. "I have hit a lot of things, but a jet dryer? I mean, no ..." -- Juan Pablo Montoya. "This is what he (Kenseth) deserves. He's a hard-core racer, and he's a good man." -- Carl Edwards (eighth) •••

Online Banking Grows by Leaps and Bounds

answers on page 19

Say it isn’t true. Seniors are moving to online banking? So says a survey done by the American Bankers Association. For the first time ever, those of us age 55 and older now prefer doing our banking online rather than going to the bank in person or using the mail. It wasn’t just a few of us either. We went from 20 percent of seniors doing banking online in 2010 to a whopping 57 percent in 2011. Part of this, it’s said, is due to the banks now having a long list of requirements to avoid the fees they now charge. In some cases we’re required to have a very large balance in savings or we’re charged a monthly fee to get statements by mail. Doing our banking online is often one of the ways we can save money. Why do we do it? It’s convenient, especially if we no longer drive or if we live in places with inclement weather. For those of us who are so busy it’s not easy to get to the bank during working hours, online banking is a means to easily take care of business. That doesn’t mean we’re eager to use our cell phones to conduct bank business, however. We’re not quite there yet. Computer classes have made us more comfortable pressing keys, but a small cell phone is easily lost. So, what can we do online? We can: transfer funds from one account to another, check balances, see if a check has cleared, view our statement and pay bills. If you want to explore online banking, remember two key safety steps. Keep good virus protection on your computer, and close your browser after you log out of the bank’s website.

Now Accepting Patients

Is It a Migraine?

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have had headaches since I was 12. I am now 32. I hear people talk about their migraine headaches and wonder if I might have them. What makes a headache a migraine headache? I take aspirin for my headaches. It helps, but not all that much. Are there special medicines for migraines? -- K.D. ANSWER: Yes, there are special migraine medicines, so it is important to determine if your headaches are true migraine headaches. Some of the distinguishing attributes of migraines are the following: They begin before age 40. More women have them than men. The headache starts out with minor pain but often progresses to intense and incapacitating pain. The word used to describe it is “throbbing.” Nausea and vomiting frequently accompany it. In a little more than half of migraine patients, the headache is on one side only. Bright lights and noise intensify the pain. Sufferers try to find a dark, quiet room where they can lie down until the headache goes, and that can take four to 72 hours. Migraine sufferers can identify triggers that bring on their headaches. Stress, missing a meal, too much or too little sleep, menstrual periods, bright lights, certain odors like cigarette smoke or perfume and fatigue are some of the things that start a migraine. Alcohol -- beer and red wine in particular -- chocolate, some cheeses and cured meats like hot dogs, sausage and bacon are triggers for some. Aspirin, Tylenol, Midrin and naproxen alleviate mild migraines. Cafergot is a migraine standby. A group of newer drugs are especially good for migraine sufferers. Seven of them are available. Some names are Imitrex, Maxalt and Zomig. Imitrex comes as a nasal spray and as an injection, administered like insulin. Zomig also comes as a nasal spray. This is a godsend for those who become sick to the stomach along with the headache. Not all migraine headaches produce all the signs and symptoms I mentioned, but if you have more than two of these characteristic symptoms, it’s a good bet that you suffer from migraines. The booklet on headaches describes the common kinds and their treatment. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 901W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery.
