A recent headline from the Los Angeles Times, "Teens plotting attacks tend to tip their hand," highlights a particularly difficult grammar problem. Do plural teens really share a singular hand? No. But would it be better to make "hand" plural, giving us "Teens plotting attacks tend to tip their hands"? Not necessarily. In fact, the consensus seems to be that, no, a plural object in a sentence like this is not an improvement over a singular subject. This issue falls under the umbrella of what are called "agreement problems.

Sixteen marks the age of many monumental events in a typical teenager's life For one thing, it means the time for one to take on the largest responsibility yet -- driving. That's right, since many teenagers are usually very eager to drive, most have probably received a permit at 15 and have been driving around with their parents. By the time teenagers reach 16, they probably can't wait to actually drive on their own. Thus, turning 16 gives them this opportunity once they pass the driving test.

Wake up. Go to school. Go to work. Come home. Do homework. Go to bed. Repeat. This is in actuality the tedious daily schedule of a number of teenagers in our society. This basic formula does of course vary from person to person. While it may seem surprising to some people, the teenagers of today often have more on their plate than they can handle. So, what are some of the things that teenagers must face every day? Well, where should I begin? Teenagers, not only here in our community but doubtlessly all over the country, have a number of important obligations.

I was invited to a leadership conference at Newport Harbor High School, and it restored my faith in the democratic process. The 150 Harbor High students who attended broke up into student-led groups after lunch to discuss some weighty topics. The groups rotated through the four subjects, which included the Zero Tolerance Policy, the Honesty Code, the community's perception of teenagers and intramural sports. While students had passion about the issues, they were willing to let everyone have a turn at sharing ideas, without denigrating others.

MAXINE COHEN I was aghast when I saw the story on the front page of the Daily Pilot. The Newport-Mesa Unified School District had decided to prevent the display of the flier advertising Eric Schlosser's lecture in middle and high schools. They thought his work was too controversial and that he might veer off topic to talk about the subversive topics of sex and pot in his latest book. My daughter, Barbara, and I went to the Newport Beach Public Library to hear him speak.

Jessica Garrison NEWPORT BEACH -- Three Newport Beach teenagers were taken into custody after police caught them attempting to steal items from Harbor View Elementary School on Tuesday night. At about 11 p.m., a Harbor View resident noticed a van parked near the school and three teenagers loitering suspiciously near it, said Police Sgt. Mike McDermott. Police drove to the school to investigate and discovered that the van had its cargo door open and that items from the school had been loaded into it. As police approached, one of the teenagers ran from the van, McDermott said.

As the parent of three children who have grown up in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, I am shocked at the dialogue centering on the Corona del Mar High School kids who have been accused of cheating by changing grades. The principle of "restorative justice" to justify some of them being shipped to Newport Harbor High School with no record of their outrageous transgressions on their college transcript is absurd. These kids are accused of doing more than just peeking over the shoulder of a fellow test taker to confirm a test answer.

Deirdre Newman They are known as the "lost boys." They are teenagers from Sudan forced to leave their country because of a brutal civil war. In the past few years, many of them have resettled in the United States so they can live in a safer environment than their homeland and get an education. For the past week and a half, four of them have been the guests of Newport Coast resident Paul Curry and his family. The Currys have been ferrying the teenagers around Southern California, taking them to famous locales like Hollywood, Staples Center and UCLA, and simply showing them the California way of life -- one dramatically different from their own beginnings.

Newport Beach public safety workers on Tuesday grappled with the aftermath of what appeared to be an historic tragedy, trying to understand how a fast-moving luxury sedan veered from a busy thoroughfare and into a tree, where it caught fire and claimed the lives of five high school students. Police and firefighters could not recall a car accident, at least in the last three decades, that ended so many lives. "I've been on duty for almost 30 years, and I've seen some terrible vehicular accidents," Newport Beach Fire Capt.

Rescue workers from Orange, Los Angeles and Riverside counties spent five days searching for Nicolas Cendoya, 19, and Kyndall Jack, 18. The pair went missing March 31 in Trabuco.

Two other sheriff's departments, the California Emergency Management Agency, the Orange County Fire Authority and Orange County Parks joined the search.

Parent advice From our panel of staff contributors: An elderly relative went to some extra lengths to provide foodstuffs for a younger vegan relative one recent holiday. The relative read the fine print on a cheese package labeled "vegetarian" and told our elder - apologetically - that it contained casein, which is an animal protein, and therefore she couldn't eat it. For that reason, it is good for the vegan (or her guardians) to bring some provisions and offer in advance to prepare and share them.

A speeding teenage driver caused a fatal collision last year that killed a former Corona del Mar High School cheerleading coach along with three others, according to a recently released California Highway Patrol investigation report.

IRVINE — Silkscreened on their matching green T-shirts was a photo of their friend at a birthday party. It was taken just hours before a car crash that led to her untimely death. Krista Merassa, Parisa Ghaemi and Alison Rivas, all 15, wore the shirts in memoriam of Ashton Sweet as they stood together Monday afternoon in front of the packed, brightly lit Chinese Baptist Church of Center Orange County. A crowd of some 300 attendees, dressed in green and white, was with the trio at the memorial service for Sweet, the 14-year-old Irvine cheerleader killed in a May 29 car crash in Irvine.
