Angry Alaska on the national news, again: STD land?

How about this news about STD's in Alaska? It caught me by surprise since I haven't heard of this on the local news recently. It seems that we are near the top States on some forms of STD's

They should sign a notarized pre-do agreement?

What else is there to do in winter if you can't afford a snow mobile or snowboard/ski? lol

It's the number one reason why I never dated, or would ever consider getting intimate with a barfly. Gives me the creeps.

Oh boy, and I'm on my way to AK and single. Well, I was already close to giving up on dating anyway. I think this just solidified the deal, ha ha.

morn'n Rance! nope they don't know: from a medical site:
What are the signs and symptoms of gonorrhea?

Some men with gonorrhea may have no symptoms at all. However, some men have signs or symptoms that appear two to five days after infection; symptoms can take as long as 30 days to appear. Symptoms and signs include a burning sensation when urinating, or a white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis. Sometimes men with gonorrhea get painful or swollen testicles.
In women, the symptoms of gonorrhea are often mild, but most women who are infected have no symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they can be so non-specific as to be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection.

I was just trying to figure why the Southwest of AK, the place on the news above, has such a problem. The only thing i could come up with is that there always are a lot of transients (tourists, summer work and fishing crews, etc.) moving in and out. I could be wrong, of course.

Why is AK the king of STD's? Could it have anything to do with the level of alcohol that people drink there? And what happens after you drink, maybe anyone at the bar looks good to go home with...One night stand capital I would say...
