    In hindsight, it's hard to believe that John Preston and his magical dog were ever allowed to testify in court. Preston's claims — that his dog could track scents through water, even years after a suspect supposedly left them — were...

    Three of Florida's four Cabinet members are spending more and more time away from their Capitol offices as they rush around the state to collect campaign checks at dinner soirees, fishing trips, coffees and private parties. The packed schedules reflect...
