Affiliate roundup: Students told to delete Facebook accounts

A sampling of Thursday's headlines from some CNN affiliates nationwide:

WCBS: School says some students violating policy against Facebook

Students at a Jewish girls’ high school in New York have been ordered to delete their Facebook accounts in accordance with school policy, CNN affiliate WCBS-TV reported.

Juniors at the school who were found to have Facebook accounts were taken out of class and told to stop their accounts or face expulsion, according to WCBS. Students at the school sign contracts promising not to have the accounts; the school principal says having such an account violates religious expectations of modesty.

WTVM: Poisoned Auburn University oaks get sugar injection

Auburn University officials are using a sugar treatment in hopes of saving two beloved oak trees that were poisoned more than a year ago, CNN affiliate WTVM-TV reported.

Officials injected the oaks with sugar, hoping it will serve as a substitute for the carbohydrates that that the trees would be producing had they not been poisoned, according to WTVM.

The oak trees at Toomer’s Corner were poisoned with a virulent herbicide in late 2010. The trees are well-known at Auburn, with sports fans typically gathering around them after victories and draping them with toilet paper.

KTXL: Ex-astronaut’s designation on ballot debated

A law firm is challenging a congressional candidate’s use of “astronaut” in a California race.

A retired NASA astronaut running for a congressional seat may have to fight in court if he wants “astronaut” as a description for him on ballots, CNN affiliate KTXL-TV reported.

A law firm is challenging Jose Hernandez’s intention to use the designation, arguing that he no longer is an astronaut and therefore can’t call himself one on the ballot, according to KTXL.

WFOR: Dwyane Wade writing book on fatherhood

A publisher has announced that a book on fatherhood written by NBA star Dwyane Wade will be released in September, CNN affiliate WFOR-TV reported.

In “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball,” the Miami Heat player will share on-and-off-the court experiences as a single parent, and as a child of a single parent, WFOR reports.

Wade was awarded sole custody of his two sons last year after a court battle with his ex-wife, according to WFOR.

      Your Youtube was shut down because your messages need to have tin-foil hats worn to be understood, and you weren't providing them free-of-charge.

    I can't believe them damn Chinese bassterds are making kids delete their FB accounts. I bet that's what they do in Iran and Syria too...probably even in Israeli Jewish schools. Time to send in the troops and and force these governments to treat their people right.

    How many pages are there in the Facebook? Is it a novel or a short story? Was it written with a specific purpose in mind? Is it ok for children to read it, or is it something you would hide from them in the laundry room?

    I am so pleased that I got off of Facebook and Twitter. It was taking over my life and I was checking into every location I was at. However, what right do schools have to dictate this to students. Now that I am studying in France I realize how shallow Facebook is.Not having a mobile with me at all times is liberating. My friend allowed me to borrow his as I travel to London this morning. Bon jour to all of my blogging partners and I will "see you" in late April.
