6 -, Hinton News Tues. Oct. 3, 2017 HO ME Tips For Parents Of (NAPS)--The National Safety Coun- cil reports that half of all teen drivers will be involved in a car crash before graduating from high school. Listening to these helpful tips and utilizing avail- able technology can help you keep your teen driver safer. Advice For Teens A safer driving experience can be achieved with deliberate steps like wear- ing your seat bek, putting your phone in your glove compartment, and obeying the speed limit. Driving at slower speeds will be especially helpful when driving in unfamiliar or difficult-to-navigate areas. Plan ahead! Knowing how to get to your destination ahead of time and how long it will take to get there will provide for a less stressful trip. Focusing on the road and not the passengers in the car can also help you reduce risk while driving--and perhaps the most important, if not the most obvi- ous piece of advice, is to never drink and drive. Drinking and driving is illegal and impairs judgment and reaction time. Advice For Parents Being the parent of a new teen driv- er can be stressful and it's a task parents must be vigilant about. Keeping a few tips in mind when preparing teens for driving can help you ready them for the responsibilities of the road. Understand and educate your teen about the laws your state has for the types and number of passengers allowed in your teens' car and the times they are allowed to be driving. After this time is passed, only allow your teens to increase the amount of passengers and times they drive if you feel they are ready. Be a good example--make sure that you observe the rules of the road while driving to demonstrate the importance of safety. By occasionally riding with your teen, you can observe their driving skills to make sure they understand and are fol- lowing all laws and safety precautions. Teen Drivers A new connected car device enables parents to have more-informed con- versations with teens about their driving habits. Tim Hollister, a Teen Safe Driving Advocate and author of "Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving;' advises parents to approach their teens' driving as if they were air traffic control and their teen were flying an airplane. "Every time your teen gets behind the wheel" Hollister encourages, "go through a safety checklist, have a flight plan, and use monitoring technology to make sure that flight plan is being ad- hered to." New technology, such as Hum by Verizon, allows parents to receive the type of information needed to help their teens drive safely. For example, parents can receive alerts if their teen drives outside a boundary they set or over the speed they select. Hum also offers pin- point vehicle location, safety scores and crash detection so that emergency help is close at hand. When it comes to your family's safe- ty while driving, you can never have too much information. Utilize these tips and technologies to help encourage safe driving, every time your teen gets be- hind th~ wheel. Learn More You can purchase the Hum device and learn more by visiting a Verizon Wireless retail store or www.hum.com. Make Time For Quick Family Meals (NAPS)--Here's food for thought: Ex- perts say mealtime may be the best time for families to relax, reconnect and enjoy each other's company after a busy day.

Don't Forget An Important Part Of The School Year (NAPS)--Amid all the busyness and excitement of the school year--classes, friends, sports and other activities-- there's something very important young men should not forget: Within 30 days of their 18th birthday, they must register with the Selective Service. There are several reasons. ' First, it's the law. Failure to register is a lot more serious than failing a test. You could be fined up to $250,000 or even sent to prison for up to five years--or both. Next, not registering may mean not get- ting a driver's license (or citizenship if you've immigrated to the U.S. If that's the case, you should know the Selective Ser- vice System has not now, or in the past, collected or shared any information that would indicate a man's immigration sta- tus, either documented or undocument- ed. Selective Service has no authority to collect such information, has no use for it, and it is irrelevant to the registration requirement.). Not registering can also keep you from getting jobs, job train- ing, scholarships and student loans. This includes Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Direct Stafford Loans/ PLUS Loans, National Direct Student Loans, and College Work-Study. What's more, it's your civic duty. By registering all eligible men, Selective Service ensures a fair and equitable draft, if ever required, though there hasn't been one since 1973. Fortunately, registration is easy. Here are five ways to do so: L Young men can start the school year off right and demonstrate their sense of responsibility. 1. You'll probably get a card in the mail. Simply fill it out and post it back. 2. If not, you can find Selective Service mail-back registration forms at any U.S. post office. Fill one out, affix postage, and mail it to Selective Service, You don't even have to ask the postal clerk. Men living overseas may register at any U.S. Embassy or consular office. 3. If you're applying to college, you can check "Register Me" on Box #22 on the application form for federal student financial aid (FAFSA). The Department of Education will furnish Selective Service with the required registration information. 4. If you're in high school, chances are there's a staff member or teacher appointed as a Selective Service Registrar and he or she can guide you ffu'ough the registration process. 5. Perhaps simplest of all, you can go to www.sss.gov/Re gistmtion/Register-Now/ Reg- istration-Form and fill out the form online.

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission wants to redefine broadband by lowering the standard for speed, a move advocates for affordable access say will hurt many folks in Appalachia. The regulatory agency currently defines home broadband at 25 megabits per second, but FCC chair Ajit Pal wants to allow cellular service at 10 megabits per second. Kate Forscey, an associate polif~ counsel for the advocacy group Public Knowledge, says mobile isn't a substitute for fixed broadband service to the home, and not just for watching live sporting events. "But also more fundamental needs like applying for jobs, for kids to do their homework and file book reports or do research," she states. "It's the FCC's job to make sure that people aren't getting left behind in 21st century America. "Pal maintains wireless is a viable substitute. Public Knowledge filed a response to the FCC proposal last week, joining a flood of other comments opposing the lower standards. According to the FCC, nearly a third of West Virginians do not have access to high speed Internet connections at home. That number is 10 percent in urban parts of the state, but five times higher in the rural areas. Forseey says the proposed changes would be a step backward in rural and low income Americans' battle for connectivity. "Let's not let the agency change their rules for its own homework assignment to ensure broadband deployment, so that it doesn't even have to do the project," Forscey says. "Congress told them, in no uncertain terms, to get real high functioning connectivity to all Americans, to every corner of our nation. No one should have to settle for less. "Similar to the huge public outcry over net neutrality, Forscey says it's important for people around the country t% tell the FCC about their experiences with broadband.
