Some on-the-job training

Connor Carlisle, 10, a fourth-grader at Lakeview Fundamental Elementary School, spends time with his father, Reid Carlisle, during the monthly All Pro Dad breakfast at the St. Petersburg school. “This gives us time to spend together in our busy lives,” said Reid Carlisle, who said they spend time together in Scouting as well. Last month’s breakfast included information about healthy eating for children. This month’s breakfast will include a canine demonstration by the St. Petersburg Police Department. All Pro Dad is a program of Family First, a national nonprofit organization based in Tampa, founded by former pro football player Mark Merrill and former NFL coach Tony Dungy. Its goal is to give men the resources and encouragement they need to become better fathers.

  1. Four-time Iditarod champ implicated in dog doping case, pulls out of 2018 race

    A doping scandal has rocked yet another sport — this time, the competition that calls itself the "Last Great Race on Earth" — the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

    Dallas Seavey poses with his lead dogs Reef, left, and Tide after finishing the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Nome, Alaska, in March 2016. Four-time Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey denies he administered banned drugs to his dogs in this year's race, and has withdrawn from the 2018 race in protest. The Iditarod Trail Committee on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, identified Seavey as the musher who had four dogs test positive for a banned opioid pain reliever after finishing the race last March in Nome.
