News10's Great Hang Up: Moms tackle safe driving

FOLSOM, CA -- Two friends and parents of teen drivers decided to pool the information they've gleaned about driving safely and getting a license all in one place.

Kari Eide and Debbie Kenny started the website calteendriverguide.com as a resource for parents and teens, and it includes everything from the steps on how to get a license to what happens and what to do if you are in an accident.

They launched the website about nine months ago after brainstorming over dinner one night.

Kari's son Parker and Debbie's daughter Madi both use the website and give it thumbs up.

Debbie hopes it sparks dialogue between parents and teens about safe driving and prompts them to take the pledge not to text and drive.

If you watched the Casey Anthony trial, you know a conviction is not a slam dunk. However, the prosecution did get the last word by playing a profanity-laced jailhouse call made by Anthony.

Ways to Avoid Black Widow Bites

Ways to Avoid Black Widow Bites

"Come into my parlor said the spider to the fly," is an often quoted saying. Whoever originated it may have had this arachnid in mind. The mere thought of the Black Widow causes most of us to pause and evokes fear and panic in the hearts of a few.

A female with an egg sac may be a bit protective but contrary to urban legend, black widows do not aggressively come out to bite us. They’re shy creatures that prefer to avoid contact with humans or any creatures that may pose a threat to them. If disturbed, as with any spider, black widows will flee to a sheltered area and wait until whatever caused it to flee has passed. They tend to inhabit secluded areas, usually low to the ground, where, they are likely to avoid detection. It is this habit however, that is the main problem. Bites usually occur when unsuspecting humans put their unprotected hands, bare feet, etc.
