Florida Woman Hit with Staggering $200,000 Cell Phone Bill

If you think your cell phone bill is high, you haven’t met Celina Aarons.

The Florida woman added a cell phone to her account for her mute and hearing-impaired brother, who didn’t know to turn off his data roaming when he was recently in Canada. Since his only form of communication with the phone is via text messages, those international data rates added up quickly — to the tune of over $200,000 in one month.

No Florida Team Appears in Top 25 for First Time Since 1982

Since the 1982 season ended, one of the constants in college football had been a seemingly perpetual dominance by the Florida schools.

In the last 29 years, Florida, Florida State and Miami took up residence at the top of the college football polls and won nine national championships in that stretch. But that all came to an end this week when, for the first time since December 6, 1982, there were no Florida schools ranked in the AP Top 25.

Unemployed In Florida? You Get A Super Hero Cape!

A government-supported unemployment agency in Central Florida is in hot water today after it reportedly spent $14,200 to fund 6,000 superhero capes to hand out to unemployed area residents.

It's all part of what's being called the 'Cape- A-Bility Challenge,' a contest in which out-of-work Floridians take on "Dr. Evil Unemployment," a cartoon character that represents the current state of the economy. (The agency also spent $2,300 on foam cutouts of this job-killing super villain.)

Once they enter the contest, they will be provided with a red cape -- while supplies last, of course. The campaign, which some are calling "insensitive and wasteful," runs through June 30.
