The study focused on whether a child would be motivated to continue reading longer and persevere through moderately challenging sections of of a book when they are accompanied by a dog.

The Florida High School Athletic Association also fined Wekiva High School $500 after referees’ filed a report on the fight. Officials say Wekiva players physically confronted opponents from New Port Richey Mitchell High School after losing a playoff semifinal game on Nov. 27th. According to a report, “After the game was over the Mitchell team was basically attacked by a few of the Wekiva players, resulting in the whole team from Wekiva charging over.” The incident took place after Mitchell took a knee on the last play of the game to run out the clock. School administrators said that nine members of the losing team left the sideline area to push and punch opposing players. One student was seen throwing helmets at a player who was lying on the ground after being punched multiple times. Local law enforcement agencies are not pressing charges against anyone involved, because they say no victims have come forward to file a report. School officials say they accept the fines and suspension and will not appeal the sanctions.(

Upon reviewing store security video at River Ridge Hardware, it was clear the incident happened at 3:30 a.m. when someone packed the trees into a trailer. A post on the store’s Facebook page asked the public to share any information they might have with the Spokane Police Department. On Monday, officers with the Patrol Anti-Crime Team and Downtown Neighborhood Resource Officers began investigating the incident. The investigation led to the arrest of 49-year-old Eli P. Vansickle. After his arrest, Vansickle told police where the trailer used in the burglary was stashed in Spokane, leading to the recovery of the stolen trees. Vansickle has a felony record and was jailed on suspicion of burglary and theft. (
