Underage drinking and drug use is a concern in our community throughout the year, especially during April and May, when our teens will make celebration decisions on prom night. Parties often involve peer pressure to engage in underage drinking, drugs and thrill-seeking behavior. This combination can contribute to teens making bad decisions. How our teens celebrate on prom night is affected by their options. All 12 Howard County high school PTAs are addressing the need for safe after-prom celebrations by providing a safe, fun option in an alcohol and drug-free setting with adult supervision.

From hosting elaborate after-prom parties to placing wrecked cars outside high schools, school officials in Howard County are doing more than ever before to prevent drunken driving on prom night. Officials say recent teen driving tragedies have prompted an aggressive two-pronged approach: remind students again and again - and as graphically as possible - about the dangers of drunken driving, and at the same time provide a safe alternative to alcohol-drenched private parties. For the first time, all 12 county high schools are holding after-prom parties, noted Mary Ellen Creasy, vice president for Howard County's PTA Council and coordinator of after-prom efforts countywide.

We're not going to tell anyone how to run their households, but if anyone ever has Duff Goldman over, here's a hint on what not to pour: Sunny-D. Baltimore's Ace of Cakes really, really, really seems to hate the orange-flavored drink. Like really. It started seemingly out of nowhere on Twitter. Duff posed a question that was absolutely more of a statement: What is Sunny-D? He didn't mean what is it. That he knew. He meant, what the heck is in it? Whath followed was a series of Tweets, waxing disgusted (and rather creative)

This is the season when stretch limos span city blocks, strappy sandals dance out of stores and bodacious tuxedos strut the land. P Each generation of high school graduates has a unique set of prom memories. They are snapshots of both tradition and flux.

Below, three high school seniors with three different paths to the prom tell their tales -- with a little parental support.

THE CALL came about a week ago. Minutes later, while I was curled up half-asleep, exhausted, Katie whispered quietly in my ear. "It was Adam. He wants me to go to the prom with him on Friday. I told him maybe. Is that OK?" I stirred. "Oh, Katie, you must go, that is so nice of him to call!" Days later, I scrambled to find Adam's number, remembering that my sister knew his family from church. Knowing that Katie would not have thought to write down his number, I needed to confirm the prom date for the next day. I called Adam's mom. All was set. I was not prepared for prom night.

"This gives you a chance to see that you can't control yourself."

FINALLY, SHE came down the stairs, and you had to say this much: She was worth the wait. Slim and pretty in a metallic blue dress, her smile somehow bashful and incandescent at the same time. You'd have sworn it was 1995 and Princess Di had just walked in. Photographers jockeyed for position, cameras flashed from every angle. Then she moved into the next room, where my son, in his white tuxedo, struggled to affix her corsage, after which she tried to pin his boutonniere without drawing blood.
