1. Who is accused of stealing the tarts?
Dear Jesse: The ozone layer is part of the atmosphere above Earth. It's kind of like a shield that protects us from harmful utraviolet (UV) radiation. It's dangerous because UVs can cause skin cancer. Scientists say there is less ozone now because of some kinds of household products that people use. If you want to learn more, there is a good Web site called the Environment School Kit at www.iinet.net.au/ %7Eecwa/ skoolkit.html. (This site is no longer available.) Dear Amy: Because I'm eight years old, my Mom says I can't go just anywhere I want on the Internet. How come? --Melanie, Grand Island, NE
Dear Melanie: Your Mom is right. When we got our home computer connected to the Internet, we had a family meeting about how to use it safely. My Dad said for us to use the same rules on the Internet that we use when we walk home from school. Some of our rules are like telling your folks where you are going and to go straight there. And, don't talk to strangers without talking to your parents first. Some places are for adults and if it makes you feel uncomfortable, you probably should not be there. When I end up somewhere I don't want to be, I click on my home page button and I'm back at a safe place. You and your parents should check out Stay Alert, Stay Safe at www.sass.ca for ideas about your own family rules. (This site is no longer available.)
