Let Your Kid Know It's OK To Call - 04/09/14

  My oldest child's prom is coming up.  I don't have any concerns about her doing anything she shouldn't at the after-party.  That said, my daughter knows she can call me anytime, from anywhere if something stupid happens or is going on.  I'm her dad when she makes straight A's and does everything right and I'm her dad if she ever makes a mistake. 
  I have always told her and the teens I've been fortunate enough to spend time with as a Sunday school teacher not to compound one mistake with another mistake.  Like underage drinking and getting behind the wheel of a car or getting in the car with someone else who's piling up bad decisions.  You call, I'll come.  That's the deal.
  We'll work on the teachable moments if we need to after I know you're safe.  A lot of kids will be heading to proms over the next month or so. 
  I just want them all to get home safely and eventually come to understand this is nowhere near the best time in your life.  That's down the road.  We just have to make sure they get there.

UNIVERSAL ORLANDO-METAL DETECTORS

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- No keys, no phones, no loose change. Visitors to the Universal Orlando theme park will have to go through metal detectors before they can ride the roller coasters. Park spokesman Tom Schroder says it's in response to what people are carrying in their pockets these days. He tells the Orlando Sentinel keys, phones and the like have no place on high-speed rides. Guests can store their items in free lockers at the coasters.

GIANT NUTCRACKER-OWLS

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- It's nuts! A giant nutcracker in Oregon isn't going anywhere. Workers were to begin dismantling the four-storey-tall nutcracker this week. But federally protected barn owls are nesting there. So, the Roseburg News-Review reports the nutcracker stays in a park for now.
