When Patricia Adkinson Murphy retired five years ago as a church secretary in Pittsburgh, she had just learned how to use a word processor. Frankly, her experience with new technology so late in her career had not been a pleasant one. "I said to my sons, `I don't ever want to see another computer again as long as I live,' " said Murphy, 77. "It caused me a great deal of grief." Her four sons did not listen. Three years ago, they bought her a computer. Now, Murphy says she is so comfortable with it that she even "empties her cache" of cookies left from her Web wanderings.

Q: Our 6-month-old son is active and eager to explore. He seems frustrated that he can't get around on his own. He often cries for toys that are out of reach. We'd like to put him in a walker, but our pediatrician says not to. What do you think? Wouldn't he learn more and end up smarter?A: Walkers are dangerous. Babies ride them down stairs or off porches. They tip them over into water or onto fireplaces or furnace grates. Each year, 35,000 children are brought to emergency departments with walker-related injuries, and 7,000 of those injuries are serious.

Led largely by National Art Honor Society students from Mount Hebron and River Hill high schools, the children got the chance to explore a variety of societies and themes through visual media at the daylong Art Extravaganza. "They learn certainly about different cultures," said Lisa Huriaux, the art teacher at the school in charge of organizing the 12-year-old annual event.

Sam Tepelides lined up his shot, took a couple of practice swings and then smacked the golf ball out into the open. "That was better, Sam," PGA professional Bill Cullum said. "But you need to get the club head into the grass. We're grass killers." A few minutes later, Cullum gave the 10-year-old Bel Air boy a resounding high-five and then moved on to his next pupil. Sam was among more than 30 children who, despite the scorching heat, are participating in the Junior Golf Academy this week at Gunpowder Falls Golf Course in Kingsville.
