Jacksonville high school apologizes for 'good girl' prom dress flyers posted in hallways

School officials have apologized after flyers of prom dress guidelines posted at a Jacksonville high school sparked a social media outcry.

The flyers were put up in the hallways of Stanton College Prep High School by administrators.

The display of prom dress photos at Stanton College Prep is not appropriate or an approved policy. Images were removed on Mon. #SCPgoodgirl— DCPS (@DuvalSchools) March 28, 2017

Photos of girls wearing dresses considered acceptable were labeled "good girls."

Photos of dresses without backs or with slits read: "Going to Stanton Prom? No, you're not."

The student body responded with #scpgoodgirl and the flyers were taken down, but not before many people took to social media to speak out against them.

The school district said on Twitter Tuesday that the displays were not appropriate.

Students posted video to Twitter of an apparent apology from administrators.

Jacksonville Beach man accused of killing teen in 1994 facing new child porn charges

The man accused of killing and dismembering a teenager in 1994 is now facing new charges.

Ronnie Hyde, 60, is accused of killing Fred Laster in 1994.

Hyde is now facing charges for possession of photographs/sexual performance by a child -- ten or more images.

Hyde was arrested March 7 after investigators matched his DNA to DNA found with Laster's body in 1994.

FBI investigators searched Hyde's Jacksonville Beach home for days after he was arrested.

Mayo Clinic study: High-intensity interval training can reverse aging process

A new study by the Mayo Clinic found that certain workouts can reverse the aging process.

The study found that a high-intensity interval training workout, combined with resistance training, can turn back time.

"You're essentially slowing down that aging process, (which) I think is amazing, because we didn't have those things before," said Dr. Vandana Bhide, of the Mayo Clinic.

The study was conducted by researchers in Rochester, Minnesota, and targeted two age groups -- 18 to 30-year-olds and 65 to 85-year-olds.

As we age, we lose muscle mass. Researchers found that a combined workout increases muscle mass, and on the cellular level, reverses some of the adverse effects of aging.

"For older people, it allows them to be more functional, to be able to do as much as they can at whatever age,” Bhide said.

Researchers tracked data over 12 weeks.

"It's not overnight, but we think of it taking years," Bhide said.

Florida-based fitness franchise Orange Theory Fitness focuses on these types of workouts.

"It kind of just reaffirms what we already believe here," head coach Justin Hoffman said. "We've seen tremendous strength gain, even (at) 70 years plus, with just 3 to 4 days of interval training.”

Bhide said older people who are interested in these workouts should check with their doctor before starting. And as with any exercise program, everybody is different and may not get the same results.

Children at overdose scenes make it tough for first responders

Dayton, Ohio, firefighter/paramedics say they responded to 32 overdoses from Saturday to Sunday -- three times as many ODs this past weekend as the same weekend period a year ago.

And they say their task is made more complicated when children are witnesses to the aftermath of overdoses.

"I think it's starting to get worse, honestly," Dayton resident Aaron Gibbons told News Center 7's Kate Bartley on Monday. 

Bryan Adams, Dayton Fire Department public information officer, said, "obviously it takes an emotional toll any time you deal with families. I think it becomes even more complicated when you're trying to explain a situation or deal with children who don't understand the cause." 

 Incidents where there are two or more overdose victims are becoming more commonplace, he said. 

Adams said the situation becomes troublesome when it's over and over and over. 

"So when you think of the 32 we've had over a two-day period this past weekend, that takes a toll on the first responders who are going out to these calls as well," Adams said.
