Mother afraid for son’s texting and driving

Q. My 17-year-old son texts while he is driving. I’ve asked him to stop several times, but he says he’s a good driver and nothing will happen to him. I’m really frightened, especially with the holiday traffic. Could you please explain why so many young people don’t think it’s a problem?

Deltas Give Back

Members of the Delta Eta Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority from the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff recently volunteered with the Delta Network Food Bank at 11 Portea Drive. The Food Bank is preparing food boxes to meet the daily and holiday demand for food assistance. Individuals or organizations interested in volunteering are asked to call 870-536-2424.
