It's "Prom Night" on Dancing with the Stars , and Jacoby Jones tells Karina Smirnoff he went to his prom "on a last-minute thing. " He was 5'7" and 160 pounds, and went stag. Once at prom, he played some pranks and got kicked out. Oooh, scandal! Jacoby's high school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina when he was a college student.

W hen my sister, Betsy, and I were in the first and second grade, our mother took up skiing. This was an odd pastime for someone in Illinois to adopt, but she was quite passionate for a time about her newfound pursuit. And as fate would have it, our aunt, uncle and cousins were living in Salt Lake City, and mom decided we should visit them for Christmas so that she could teach us how to ski, too. There was just one minor hurdle: How to get the Christmas presents to Aunt Carolyn's house without two inquisitive young kids catching on?

Thank you for Jean Marbella 's article on the Freemasons ("Masons open their doors at least a crack," April 2).

Mom is such an angel. She wiped your nose when you sneezed, fed you chicken soup when you were sick and held your hand when you crossed the street. (And that was just last week). Dedication like that calls for love. And perhaps a small token of your appreciation. Here are some last-minute ideas for Mother's Day that she will love.

Le'Ron McClain registered his first career touchdown when he made a 13-yard catch against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 25. But if the rookie fullback weren't playing football, his career path might have taken a different turn. You were a human environmental sciences major at Alabama. What is that? It's like consumer sciences, stuff like pharmaceutical sales and computer stuff. I liked working with computers and all that. I'd love to work at the Apple store. Who is your biggest inspiration?

Mom has a problem with a house guest. His name is Arnie, and she can't get rid of him.Arnie just won't go.Their 12-year relationship hit the skids this year, when Mom decided the house wasn't big enough for both of them. Arnie never worked a day in his life. All he did was sit in front of the TV in the living room, getting bigger and bigger until it became difficult just to walk around him. Arnie's pot was getting pretty big.Mom finally called it quits last spring. She booted Arnie out of the house, dragged him out the back door and stood him in a corner on the patio.
