I’m saddened to report that we are losing two long-time dedicated journalists, Features Editor Sharyn Betz and Food Editor Natalie Haughton. Through the decades they have done an outstanding job. They’re pros in every way and we thank them for their hard work and contributions to the Daily News. We will miss them. Sharyn’s last day is Friday and Natalie leaves today.

The 33-year-old 2011 Indianapolis 500 winner died Sunday following a 15-car crash during Lap 11 of the race.
Wheldon, competing in just his third IndyCar race of the season, had the opportunity to take home $5 million if he managed to win.
Below is a portion of Hoffarth’s interview with Wheldon:
Q: Since the race is in Vegas, you’re pinned with 15-to-1 odds from MGM to win the race. Would you bet on yourself?
A: Well, no, it’s not legal for any driver to bet on himself in the series. But 15-to-1 … it’s one of those things that’s hard to judge. Honestly, do I think I have a shot? Absolutely. The team has given me a car that will be fine, no doubt. But you’ve seen the way races go — everything has to go right. I’ll tell you the truth: I’ll be going for it with everything in my power to finish the season with an exclamation point. I’m not going to underestimate how talented the field is either.
