A couple of weeks ago, we reached a milestone in my house. My older son got his learner's permit. It's been nerve-wracking riding with him as he learns to negotiate traffic circles, four-way stops and merge lanes. But as scary as it seems riding with him, I'm more worried about the day when he drives without me. According to a new survey commissioned by AT&T, 43 percent of teens admit to texting while drivingĀ and 75 percent say their friends do it all the time. With prom and graduation season upon us, the phone company has launched a campaign, It Can Wait, to educate kids about the dangers of texting while driving.

I would like to take a personal moment to recognize the outstanding contributions of our family's "honorary son," 1st Lt. James P. Downs, whom we all call Pat. Pat is currently stationed with the U.S. Army in southern Afghanistan. He is a 2002 graduate of St. Vincent Pallotti High School and graduated from Salisbury University in 2007 with honors. After college, Pat spent time training professional athletes in speed, endurance and nutrition. He then answered our country's call and enlisted in the armed services.

KENYA IS SUCH an important African country that it matters to the rest of the world who will succeed President Daniel arap Moi when his 25-year rule ends in four months. That question matters so much to Mr. Moi as well that he wants the ruling party to consider only his choice. When Vice President George Saitoti dared to promote his own candidacy, he was summarily fired. Since its independence from Britain in 1963, Kenya has had only two presidents. And Mr. Moi insists that the first president's son, Uhuru Kenyatta, should succeed him, although half a dozen other ruling party officials of the Kenya African National Union (KANU)

Michael Hirschbeck, the 27-year-old son of major league baseball umpire John Hirschbeck, died Tuesday, WFMJ in Youngstown, Ohio, reported. Michael Hirschbeck had adrenoleukodystrophy, an inherited condition that affects the nervous system. John Hirschbeck's oldest son, John, was 8 years old when he died in 1993 of the rare degenerative disease. The Poland, Ohio, family's struggle with ALD was told in a series of 1996 articles in The Sun that won a Pulitzer Prize. Lisa Pollak's story, "The Umpire's Sons," recounted a family tragedy that had become a footnote in the feverish media coverage after Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar spat on Hirschbeck after a controversial call in 1996.

The father of WWE's biggest star is also active in pro wrestling. In fact, he is a staple in the New England scene. Known as "Johnny Fabulous," John Cena Sr. is as charismatic as you would expect the father of WWE's face to be. I caught up with him this past weekend at the New England Fan Fest, where we talked about his character, what he thinks his son's best match and rivalry was, where the WWE champ got his strong work ethic and when Cena Jr. will...

Bessie Turner bought her house in a quiet Brooklyn Park neighborhood six years ago with a plan: She wanted to give her two sons a better place to live. She'd stay until January 2010, then pull out some of her equity and move to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Her sons would continue living there, paying less than if they were to rent a similar place, and she'd be there often. But that all changed two years ago Thursday. Her elder son, Rudolph Turner Jr., 25, was fatally shot in his bedroom.

Archbishop Curley coach Barry Stitz had a long talk with his son, Ben, just prior to varsity tryouts this summer. Stitz had to explain that as the coach's son, Ben was inevitably going to be "under a microscope. " After coaching his son for Fewster F.C., a club team, the coach knew his son, a freshman, had the tactical ability to be a varsity player. The challenge would be the physical rigors of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, competing against players three or even four years older and carrying the same last name as the guy in charge.

What is the world coming to when a parent who is devastated by the loss of a child cannot bury that child in peaceful manner without worrying about protestors whose legal bills he now has been ordered to pay? ("Anger over bill to Marine's dad," March 31.) This family and every other family should have the right to bury their loved ones in peace. This group crashed the son's funeral and spat out hateful things to further devastate an already grieving family, and now that family has to pay for suing them.
