The study found that 1 out of 5 teenagers have posted online or sent by text nude or semi-nude photos or videos of themselves.

It's called "sexting," a mash-up of the words "sex" and "texting," and it's defined as the sending of sexually explicit messages or images through the use of cell phones and texting. It's a growing activity among teens and young adults that can have serious consequences.

Wood County’s allocation of Community Development Block Grant funding for fiscal 2013 is $191,000 – less than in previous years - and the county will be funding fewer projects than it had in the past, Dave Steiner, director of the county’s planning commission, says in a letter to local elected officials.

“A major change to the program for the 2013 fiscal year is that Wood County may only fund up to four projects with this amount as opposed to the six that we were able to fund in previous years,” Steiner writes in the April 12 letter.
