NAPLES HIGH SCHOOL SHAVING CREAM INCIDENT-BNR-PKG


A SEEMINGLY INNOCENT DIP IN THE WATER COULD HAVE THESE NAPLES HIGH SCHOOLERS IN HOT WATER.

Pat Carroll, School Board Chairwoman

21:13:04-:10

It's an issue of concern.

AN ANONYMOUS PERSON EMAILED US THESE PICTURES.

THEY'RE FROM GOLD HEAD BRANCH STATE PARK IN NORTH FLORIDA.

THEY SHOW THE GROUP OF CROSS COUNTRY RUNNERS IN A SHAVING CREAM FIGHT.

WHAT THEY DO NEXT IS WHY THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION IS NOT HAPPY.

INSTEAD OF TAKING SHOWERS IN THEIR CABINS.

THEY WASH OFF IN THE LAKE.

Martha Robinson, DEP Communications Manager

"We are disappointed that students would act irresponsibly."

STANDUP

The first ingredient in most shaving creams is water, obviously not a concern, but the next biggest ingredient in most brands is soap, which environmental experts say can be harmful.

Martha Robinson, DEP Communications Manager

21:02:39-:48

It's just not healthy for fish to eat that kind of stuff especially in shallow waters and warm waters, the way you find them in August in Florida.

PARK OFFICIALS SAY THE 40 STUDENTS AND CHAPERONES WERE MODEL CAMPERS UNTIL THIS DIP IN THE WATER.

TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, DEP COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER MARTHA ROBINSON TELLS US THE GROUP DIDN'T LISTEN TO A PARK RANGER THE FIRST TIME.

Martha Robinson, DEP Communications Manager

21:06:47-:53

The shaving cream fight continued.

So it continued after they told them to stop?

Yes, I believe so.

BUTT TO

21:07:04

Obviously we're not pleased about that.

ROBINSON SAYS A BIOLOGIST IS NOW TESTING THE LAKE.MONITORING THE WATER FOR ANY POSSIBLE CONTAMINATION.

ALTHOUGH SHE TELLS US IT'S UNLIKELY.

WHEN THEY GET HOME, THE STUDENTS AND COACHES WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

PAT CARROLL, COLLIER COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD CHAIRWOMAN

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TRACKING SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR

The onshore winds continued on Thursday, with scattered showers and storms developing. This activity may push back into the Urban Corridor later this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. Expect the storms to diminish overnight, with lows in the upper 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region starting Friday. Winds will shift from the west to the south and east, reducing the threat for morning rain showers. Showers and storms will develop in the PM hours and slowly diminish in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The weekend is still looking fairly decent, with most of both days dry. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and early evening, but these will be widely scattered. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more dry air works into Southwest Florida to start next week, keeping rain and storm chances low. Only an isolated shower will be possible on Monday, with highs in the mid 90s.

Rain chances do increase as we move through next week, with highs holding in the low to mid 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

With Bertha now history, things are very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the open waters of the Atlantic.

A couple of tropical waves are floating between the Lesser Antilles and Africa, but those will have a difficult time developing.

No major activity is expected in the tropics over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
