Orlando Sentinel wrote:UF braces for speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer, protests

The University of Florida’s campus is bracing for a speech Thursday by white nationalist Richard Spencer, which is expected to draw protests despite school leaders urging students to stay away.

Spencer is slated to speak 2:30 p.m. at the university’s Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

UF President W. Kent Fuchs said he expects more than 500 law-enforcement officers will be on the university’s campus Thursday and that the total cost of providing security will top $600,000.

“I fully understand freedom of speech cannot be burdened legally with the full cost of this, but on the other hand we’re being burdened,” Fuchs told the Associated Press. “So taxpayers are subsidizing hate speech

Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Monday because of the event.

South Florida teacher fired after throwing X-rated party

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida teacher has been fired after throwing an X-rated surprise party for a former student.

The party took place at Mater Lakes Academy, which is a charter school for grades six through 12 in Northwest Miami-Dade.

According to parents, the party happened in the dance teacher’s classroom after school Wednesday.

The mother of one young female student at the party said it was a gathering for the school’s dance team. She said she didn’t want to be identified because she’s a Miami-Dade County school teacher.

“In the videos, we see how they were preparing for the surprise party. And as the boy walked in, they surprised him with a hat that had a penis attached to the top and a string to be able to pull it so it can get erected,” said the mother.

The party included rubber penises, penis candles, penis hats and more.

“There was a cake that had a lollipop shaped as a vagina,” said the mother.

Now that's really for ed:
Palm Beach Post wrote:200-year-old sword from the Seminole War found in Jupiter Farms pond

When a Jupiter Farms resident found a three-foot-long iron sword in a dried-up pond on her property, she had no idea she’d discovered a piece of Seminole War-era history.

The sword was likely used in the Battle of Loxahatchee almost 200 years ago, experts said.

The resident anonymously turned the sword over to the Loxahatchee River Preservationists, a local group of volunteers that stages Seminole War re-enactments and historical tours at Loxahatchee River Battlefield/Riverbend Park.

Postexposure Prophylaxis for Rabies After Consumption of a Prepackaged Salad Containing a Bat Carcass — Florida, 2017
On April 3, 2017, two Florida residents consumed part of the same prepackaged salad before reportedly discovering the partial remains of a bat carcass in the salad. Bats are known reservoirs for rabies virus, which causes rabies disease in both animals and humans.[1] The persons who ate the salad contacted the Florida Department of Health (FLDOH), which notified CDC's Poxvirus and Rabies Branch. CDC and FLDOH determined that the immediate concern was for potential rabies virus exposure, because approximately 6% of bats submitted to U.S. public health departments annually test positive for rabies virus.[2,3]

Authorities say a man angered over people driving dangerously through a busy intersection appeared to intentionally cause a crash there to highlight the problem.

The Daily Commercial reports 61-year-old Bruce John Homer told Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies who responded to the Sunday afternoon accident that he was frustrated law enforcement wouldn’t crack down on people running through a stop sign at the intersection.

The driver of the SUV that was hit says Homer pulled out in front of him as he was going through the intersection. The driver says Homer approached him after the crash, telling him he’d run the stop sign and law enforcement “won’t do anything until someone dies.”

Palm Beach Post wrote:Pregnant Florida woman stabs, kills pit bull to save mom, sister

A pregnant Florida woman stabbed and killed her family’s dog Friday after the pit bull attacked the woman’s mother and sister.

According to a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office news release, the male dog named Buster got loose in the family’s Safety Harbor home and fought with another male pit bull around 4 p.m. Friday. Heidi Cooper, 45, and her 14-year-old daughter tried to pull the dogs apart, but Buster turned and attacked them, the PCSO said.

That’s when 22-year-old Sierra Willson stepped in, stabbing Buster several times with a knife, according to the news release. Willson is eight months pregnant, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
[…]
According to the sheriff’s office, Buster was “normally kept in a separate room because he was known for being aggressive.”

In an interview with The Tampa Bay Times, Willson called Buster “an amazing dog” and said he will be missed. On her Facebook page, Willson posted a photo she said was taken with Buster “20 minutes before he turned. Completely unprovoked,” she wrote. “No reasoning behind it at all.”

She also wrote that she had received threats after the incident, and added that she does not regret what she did. “It was either him or my mom,” she wrote. “Nobody knows what they would do in that situation.”
