NO WAY HEADLINES of The Day

A gutsy teen may have been scared, but she relied on her training - and herself - to get down safely.

Her first solo flight....and this!

A teenager on her first solo flight got more than she bargained for when she was advised by the tower that she’d lost a wheel upon takeoff. The great news? Maggie Taraska made it down safely – but there were plenty of tense moments along the way.

"I got really scared, nervous, obviously," says the 17-year-old. "I had done emergency procedures before, but you don't do them if you lose a wheel. No one really thinks that's going to happen to them. And I mean, I was all by myself so I was just terrified.”

So how’d she do it? Taraska says she relied on her instincts – and got some coaching from Air Traffic Control. And in the end, officials say she handled the challenge – and the landing – like a pro. And yes, she is definitely planning on getting back into the sky.

A school in Georgia will use paddling as a form of discipline.

Paddling students is now a disciplinary policy at a Georgia charter school and parents who don't consent have to agree to up to five days of suspension for their children instead.

WRDW-TV reports the Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics sent parents a letter last week asking permission to hit children with a wooden paddle. Superintendent Jody Boulineau says the kindergarten through ninth grade school has received a little more than 100 of the forms back and a third of them give consent to use the paddle.

Boulineau says the corporal punishment won't be used often, and just the threat of it will be a deterrent.

The form says students will be spanked on the buttocks in an office with closed doors and shouldn't be struck more than three times.
