Woman exposed herself to kids

A Melbourne woman was arrested after the police said she yanked down her “hot pink” pants and exposed herself to schoolchildren in Fellsmere.
Tammy Ann Roseman, 39, faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct after the incident in Indian River County.

An officer with the Fellsmere Police Department wrote in the arrest affidavit that a public school bus was southbound on North Willow Street when it came upon a pedestrian near the intersection with Vernon Street. There were students on the bus.
The driver “observed her begin to unbutton her pants,” the affidavit said. “Passengers began screaming, while some began covering their eyes with their hands.”
In his rearview mirror, the driver saw the woman “mooning” the school bus. He reported the incident to the school district’s dispatch center.
An officer recognized Roseman from her previous run-ins with law enforcement. She was sent to the Indian River County Jail.
Roseman is a felon with an extensive criminal history in Brevard County. Her charges have included cocaine possession, grand theft auto, loitering and prowling, disorderly intoxication, obstructing a highway, trespassing, burglary and prostitution lewdness.

Surgeons: Time to Remove Battery From Boy
Arizona doctors are going to have to cut a boy open to get a leaking battery out of his stomach. He swallowed the small lithium battery from a DVD remote.
It happened a few months ago, but Friday, surgeons prepared for the operation at the Phoenix Children's Hospital. Doctors say it's especially dangerous because the battery leaked inside the boy, burning his esophagus.
"When we found out that the battery was lodged in his esophagus, we were devastated, sickened, shocked," said the boy's mother, Karla Ranch. "We couldn't believe that this could have happened."
Experts say you can find these tiny batteries in other household items like bathroom scales, hearing aids, and singing greeting cards.
10-year-old boy to have sex change
A Court has allowed a 10-year-old boy to become the youngest Australian to have sex-change therapy.
The boy, known as Jamie, has lived as a girl for two years, dressing in feminine clothes, using the girls' toilet at school and "presenting as a very attractive young girl with long, blonde hair", the court heard.
The court heard Jamie saw herself as a "freak" and a "girl in a boy's body", and had first identified as a girl when she was a toddler.
Her mother said though doctors had told her Jamie would be the youngest patient to start such treatment, she was confident it was in her best interests.
She said before her child changed schools in year 3 and acted as a girl, she told her, "Mummy, it is so hard trying to be a boy", and that she had to "go to school disguised as a boy".
The mother said the family had started treating Jamie as a female in 2008 after her non-identical twin brother accepted her condition and announced: "I have a sister."

Yellow lines to show pedestrians where to walk

Yellow lines are normally used to stop motorists parking on the road - but now they have been painted on a pavement in a town center to show pedestrians where to walk.

Two lines stretch for 100m (328ft) down a high street. Other yellow lines have been painted around trees, a post box and cash points.
The path has caused confusion for residents in Ripple Road, Barking, east London, who cannot see the point of it.
‘We have all managed until now to walk along the path without tripping over things in the way, so why do we suddenly need guidelines?’ said 49-year-old Martin Harris. ‘It’s completely over the top and another sign of health and safety gone mad.’
Sarah Waldram, 32, added: ‘I’ve never seen anyone bump into a post box, why do we need yellow lines to show us the way?’
A Barking and Dagenham Council spokesman said the lines provided ‘a marked walk-through’ and a decision on whether to keep them would be made within three months.
