New rules for drivers start today
By William Kincaid

Ohio's new law makes texting behind the wheel a primary offense for those age 18 and younger, which means it can be the only reason to be stopped by law enforcement. The action is a secondary offense for adults; they have to be pulled over for speeding or some other infraction before they can get a ticket. [More]

The Flyers had their backs pinned against the wall after going down two games to one but they dug deep and took the final two sets to upend the Cardinals by scores of 22-25, 25-14, 21-25, 26-24, and 15-8. [More]
