1 in 4 teenage girls has an STD.

One in four teenage girls in the United States has a sexually-transmitted disease, a study has indicated. The study, by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found an even higher prevalence of STDs among black girls.

A virus that causes cervical cancer - HPV - was the most common, followed by chlamydia, trichomoniasis and herpes. The CDC says the study is the first in its kind to examine the prevalence of common sexually transmitted diseases among adolescent girls.

It found that nearly half of the African-American girls surveyed had at least one STD, while the rate was 20% among white and Mexican-American teenagers. Human papillomavirus, or HPV, affected 18% of the girls surveyed, chlamydia 4%, trichomoniasis 2.5%, and herpes simplex virus 2%. » Article here

Dude found naked in alligator pond -- for the second time

Ask the two deputy sheriffs who found Adrian Apgar nude early Friday, wading in a Lakeland-area pond. Apgar told the officers he was looking for an alligator. About 15 months ago, one tried to eat him.

He made national news in November 2006 when deputies rescued him from the jaws of a huge alligator in Lake Parker. He was naked when they pulled him from the lake.

During that attack, deputies engaged in a tug of war with the alligator. The reptile ripped off much of Apgar's left arm and bit his back, buttocks and thigh. Apgar spent months recovering from his life-threatening injuries at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. On Friday, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said his deputies had once again saved Apgar's life, possibly rescuing him from another alligator attack.

The deputies searched the park for Apgar and eventually found him in the pond walking toward an alligator about 50 feet offshore. The only way to that location was through thick brush. The deputies talked Apgar, 47, safely out of the water. He told them he had been bitten by a snake while looking for the alligator.

He was hospitalized at Lakeland Regional under the state law that allows people to be held for evaluation if they appear to be a threat to themselves or others. » Full article here

Dude dies in "Jackass"-like stunt involving shopping cart, SUV

An 18-year-old Winter Park man was killed late Saturday night after riding in a shopping cart while holding onto a moving sport utility vehicle, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Cameron Bieberle was sitting in a shopping cart in the parking lot while hanging onto a Cadillac Escalade being driven by Michael Smith, 23, of Orlando. The car and the shopping cart went over a speed bump and the cart overturned, ejecting Bieberle. Bieberle was pronounced dead at the scene. Smith and a passenger in the car, Shaun Kirylczuk, 17, of Orlando, were not injured. » Article here

Principal spends night sleeping on roof.

Charles Sheppard, principal of Townsend Elementary School, is afraid of heights. So why did he pledge to spend a night on the school roof if his students met a February reading quota?

Around suppertime March 19, provisioned with food, water and a laptop, he’ll ascend to his rooftop perch and sleep under the stars. “It’ll be neat for the kids when they arrive in the morning to see me up there,” Sheppard said. “Actually, if it’s raining that’ll make it even more entertaining.”

Fifth-grader Tony Immediato said he’s hoping for snow that night. Sheppard, 38, plans to pass the time by writing a blog about his rooftop stay.

Assistant principal Lucia Weathers said the rooftop stunt is typical of Sheppard. "He is what you’d call big on school spirit,” she said. The principal occasionally walks the halls wearing the costume of the school’s Thunderbird mascot. Just to be on the safe side, Wilson said she plans to borrow a neighbor’s trampoline to break any possible fall. » Article here
