  • Dear Abby: Man angry about things mother said under sedation

    Dear Abby: I'm close to 70 and have three grown children. I've been a widow for 15 years. My oldest son, age 45, has pretty much cut himself off from our fairly close family. His reason: Two years ago, after I had surgery for lung cancer, he claims I told him I wished I had never had children. This couldn't be further from the truth. All three of mine were planned.

    My other children decided the hospital was overmedicating me and that most of what I was babbling was nonsense. I only remember...

  • St. Louis tops Toronto, gets franchise-record 11th win in row

    In the beginning of the season, the Blues were finding ways to lose games. Now, they're managing to pull out wins.

    Ryan O'Reilly scored 34 seconds into overtime and the Blues beat Toronto 3-2 in St. Louis on Tuesday night for their franchise-record 11th straight victory.

    "It's fun hockey," O'Reilly said. "We're really enjoying it. You see from the start of the year how frustrating it was and how we kept working and working and not getting the result. Now, you see the way we've come together...

  • Horoscope for Wednesday, 2/20/19 by Christopher Renstrom

    ARIES. (March 20 - April 19): Everything feels like a life lesson. It'd be nice if there were an easier way, but it wouldn't be a life lesson then, would it?

  • Fourth-ranked Kentucky slogs past Missouri

    PJ Washington and Tyler Herro scored 18 points each as fourth-ranked Kentucky slogged past host Missouri 66-58 on Tuesday night.

    Ashton Hagans added 12 points for the Wildcats (22-4, 11-2 SEC), who looked a little sluggish three days after beating then-No. 1 Tennessee. Kentucky still was good enough defensively to hold the Tigers to 37 percent shooting.

    Ronnie Suggs scored 13 and Jordan Geist finished with 11 for Missouri (12-13, 3-10).

  • Mike Moustakas, Brewers finalize one-year, $10 million deal

    Mike Moustakas fell one win shy of reaching the World Series with Milwaukee.

    "I think we had some unfinished business after last year," Moustakas said Tuesday after finalizing a $10 million, one-year deal with the Brewers. "I loved playing here last year. It was a lot of fun. We fell a little bit short, obviously, but I feel like this team can get back to where we were at last year."

    After Milwaukee won the NL Central for the first time since 2011, Brewers Chairman Mark Attanasio and his front...

  • AP source: Manny Machado, Padres agree to $300 million, 10-year deal

    SAN DIEGO - With their city's fans desperate for a winner, the rebuilding San Diego Padres delivered their splashiest free-agent signing ever by agreeing with All-Star infielder Manny Machado on a $300 million, 10-year deal.

    A person familiar with the negotiations confirmed the deal Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement was subject to a successful physical and had not been announced. Machado, 26, can opt out after five years and become a free agent again, the person...

  • Antonio Brown, Steelers agree to ‘move on’

    Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown has ended his lengthy standoff with the Steelers by meeting with team President Art Rooney II, though any shot at reconciliation between the two sides appears to be out of the question.

    Brown, who has asked to be traded, posted a picture on various social-media accounts Tuesday that showed him arm in arm with Rooney at the Palm Beach International Airport.

    "We discussed a lot of things and we cleared the air on several issues!" Brown wrote.

  • Heavyweight Joshua makes U.S. media debut

    Staring contests, shouting matches, some shoving. Even a near mix-up with some members of the audience.

    All part of the predictable pregame show, if you will, when heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and challenger Jarrell Miller shared a makeshift stage at Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday.

    The title fight, the heralded Joshua's U.S. debut, isn't until June 1. The WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belt holder is unbeaten (22-0, 21 knockouts), but has fought only in the United Kingdom, where he...
