02/15/07 45 W - + 14 - 11 Spelled Backwards


Yrac is Cary spelled backwards, which took this smart guy some years to figure out. Noted by a reader, Renrag is Garner spelled backwards, and was the name of the Garner High School newspaper in the late 1960s. Any other notable reverse spellings?



If I am not mistaken the Cary HS yearbook is/was called the YRAC

The Broughton High School yearbook was called LATIPAC at one time, maybe still is.

Wake County is not the only one that has spelled Rural Fire Districts backwords. The rural fire district for Ayden (in Pitt County) is spelled NEDYA.

I cannot guess at how many people asked me where YRAC was. And all of the ways they tried to pronounce it- YEE-rac, yee-RAC, yerac. The first member of the public I ever encountered, while I was a member of Yrac, who guessed it all correctly was a Pompano Beach firefighter I encountered way back in 1981 or so.
