    Hasen't it become obvions that our children are not receiving adaquate driving instructions? There has been a rash of kids being killed in automobile accidents. Better instruction and more driving experience is desperately needed. Am I the only one who sees the need here?

    I lived in Wendell for over 10 years. This girl was near my Son's age and my heart goes out to her family. I may know them. My worst fear is losing one of my kids (20 & 28) to a car accident. To the family: I'm so so sorry for your loss. I don't even want to imagine it. My love goes out to you. God Bless...
