I'm confused. If this is focusing specifically on Dougherty Valley High School students, why are students at Monte Vista High School being encouraged to submit their real-life experiences as a driver or passenger on the program's website? Am I missing something?

Lucky to have Sully within our community as a role model for the younger generation to emulate.

Hi Sue, there was a mix up with the press materials and it should state that Dougherty Valley High School students are encouraged to submit videos. The story has been updated to reflect that.

[removed] how about we make the fines for cell phone distraction as serious as drunk driving - like mandatory public service in spiffy orange jump suits combined with huge fines and at least two or three points off the old DMV score? And I don't mean just for the kids, though texting is the worst of all, teenagers being the most frequent offenders.

Head's Up Everyone!
Whatever you do, do not make any little jokes or snide comments on these boards, because Emily the Word Nazi is on the job!
Getting pretty thin skinned in your old age, aren't you Ms. West?
I said absolutely nothing offensive in my post regarding Doyle's letter, beyond expressing my disgust with the nasty woman who accosted Doyle at his last public appearance, and you delete my entire post?

If you can't allow that (per the US Constitution), take the site down, because it's no longer a "forum".
