Last week's question:

Many schools ban cellphones, but some teachers have been relaxing the rules to incorporate cellphones into class lessons. Do you think cellphones should be allowed in the classrooms for learning purposes?

NO. TOO MANY kids will be texting friends or playing games. The kids should be allowed to have them in the off or silent mode in their backpacks for emergencies only. Just my opinion.

What do you think of the Antioch City Council's decision last week to ban the feeding of abandoned cats on public property?
