ATLANTA – Night after Old Doolittle closer to use in an identical game, then he looked at the best man he had while standing in the lottery, Dave Martinez cut out the key men. The manager of the Washington Nationals asked Doolittle to observe five people, and Doolittle did, and was the punctuation mark. 5-3 […]

At this moment in the age of Trump, it’s long past time for people like me to go public about our abortions. Efforts to deny women abortion access (not to mention contraception) have only accelerated as the president seeks to appease his right-wing Christian supporters.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Simone Biles had a lot to feel good about, even with some rare missteps that were quickly forgotten in her latest climb atop another podium. What mattered most to the world’s top gymnast was keeping things moving forward, which Biles did. Biles won the U.S. Classic on Saturday night to maintain her six-year winning streak. The four-time Olympic gold medalist and reigning world champion had an all-around score of 60.000, 2.100 points ahead of runner-up Riley McCusker. Grace McCallum was third at 57.700. Biles won her 19th consecutive all-around title beginning with the 2013 U.S. Championships. She surged from fifth following the first rotation on the uneven bars into first on the next. She had the highest score in the vault (15.650), though Jade Carey won the event with a two-vault average score of 14.800. Biles left no doubt in the floor exercise, which generated the most curiosity for what she would add to her top-flight exercise routine. Biles delivered, unleashing a high-speed punch layout front onto her second flip on her signature move known as “The Biles,” a double layout with a half turn. Momentum from the high-energy move sent her out of bounds, though it didn’t hurt her score in that segment or overall. “I definitely wanted to stay in bounds for one routine,” said Biles, who smiled at the mistake before getting back at it. “But it’s more to work on. I overpowered it a little bit, but I’m kind of happy with it. I’d rather go over than under. “At least I didn’t fly completely off of the floor.” Biles also was third on the balance beam in the first of just two U.S. appearances this year; the second is next month at the U.S. Nationals in Kansas City, Missouri. Her intense approach to the floor exercise and elsewhere pleased co-coach Laurent Landi and has him confident Biles can grow even more. “We tried it, and hopefully we can try something else at the nationals,” Landi said. “It’s mainly for me to see what she can do, to see if it’s something we can pushing or something to get away from. It was good.” McCusker, one of Biles’ teammates on the gold-medal winning U.S. squad at the world championships, was just as happy with her second-place finish that began with her finishing second on the beam to Kara Eaker. “I didn’t come in expecting anything, just to take it one skill at a time. It was great to start off and hit a beam routine, because that’s always a nerve-wracking event to start on, so I was glad I did what I did every day in the gym.” Morgan Hurd, who won the 2017 world championship while Biles took off, won the parallel bars over Sunisa Lee with McCusker and McCallum tied for third. McCallum was pleased on many levels, coming in second to Biles on the floor exercise and improving from seventh at last year’s Classic to her best finish at the event. “I’m really proud of myself,” McCallum said. “I’ve only been doing a full floor routine for a couple of weeks, so it was really nice to make it.” After the meet, McCusker, Hurd and Eaker were among six named to the U.S. Team that will compete in the Pan American Games starting Wednesday in Lima, Peru. Also selected were Aleah Finnegan and Leanne Wong, with Shilese Jones as the non-traveling alternate. The selections are pending approval by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee.

Dear Harriette: I’m having trouble managing my sleep schedule, and I have a real issue with staying up late, sometimes when I have work in the morning, and sometimes when I just want to watch more television. When I don’t sleep enough, I wake up exhausted and grouchy. I work in a coffee shop, so often I have to get up early. Today at work, one of my regular customers asked me how I was doing, and I gave an honest response: I was tired. We talk all the time, so it was fine that I told her the truth, but other customers gave me looks that said they couldn’t care less and I need to be on my job and get them their coffee. I know how little time people have in the morning for their coffee before work. I can’t afford to flake out with my customers. My boss has made it clear that the morning rush is the most important time of the workday for us to be on top of things. What measures should I take to better myself? — Sleepless Night Dear Sleepless Night: It is time to get your priorities straight. Right now you are allowing distractions to derail your future. You know that you cannot effectively stay up all night watching TV or doing anything else when you need enough rest to function in the morning. Face the facts. Tell yourself that you will go to sleep at a particular time. Set an alarm 15 minutes before your bedtime. Then set alarms for when you must get up. Give yourself time to awaken fully, eat, get ready and get to work a few minutes early. Train your brain to support your needs. That’s when it works. Dear Harriette: I lie compulsively about how busy I am, and I suspect it is a product of my depression and anxiety. Usually I decide to lie as a way to get out of possible time commitments in favor of alone time or even getting ahead on my work. Although I know having alone time is important, I think I should get out of the habit of lying like this. How do you think I should I approach this issue? — Why Lie? Dear Why Lie?: If you think this is possibly happening because of depression or anxiety, schedule an appointment with a mental health professional who can give you tools and possibly medication to help balance out your system so that you can begin to think more confidently. In addition to professional help, start thinking things all the way through before you open your mouth. If someone asks you to do something or to share information, play the entire scene out in your head. What could the outcomes be if you tell the truth or if you tell a lie? What would happen if you say nothing at all? Evaluate each answer to get an assessment of what the best answer will be. Nine times out of 10, it is best to resist committing to sharing information that may be inaccurate or agreeing to do something that you know you have no interest or intention of doing.
