With Great Happiness

It is with great happiness that I announce the presence of our Ning once again.  It is now accessible after a brief absence.  It is my intention to use this Ning once again as a teaching tool.  This time I will use it with my Service Learning students at Ringwood High School.  I want to say "Hi" to Kaylee, Kellie, Sandra, Kenzie, Liz, Alexus, Carlos, Daniel, Herman, Eudaldo, and Jordan.  I also want to say "Hi" to Brian our AmeriCorp aid.  We have a lot of work to do!!

Not Continuing

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of this Ning. The membership fee to continue is excessive in my opinion. Thanks for all the support. Please continue to be vigilant in your efforts to stop texting and driving. It is truly an epidemic!! Thank you again for your interest and continued support. 10 & 2 R U?

Textface.com

In an effort to educate people about the dangers of texting and driving, a new citizen journalism of sorts has popped up.  This time it's in the form of catching drivers in the act of texting and driving.  If you were caught on video texting from behind the wheel in 3 lanes of traffic, confronted with the evidence, would you stop?  Here is there website textface.com.  You might be next!!
