Bishop urges Congress to consider immigrants, refugees for coronavirus stimulus checks
The first round of stimulus checks helped millions of people meet their financial needs. Although the CARES Act offered stimulus checks to most Americans, it missed a few groups as well. Two such groups are immigrant and refugee families. To ensure that immigrant and refugee families are not left out again, the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ migration committee has asked Congress to include them the next time they send coronavirus stimulus checks.Q2 2020 hedge fund letters, conferences and moreCoronavirus stimulus checks for immigrant, refugee familiesAuxiliary Bishop Mario E.

Mike Sielski: The Bengals' Joe Burrow is right where Carson Wentz used to be
PHILADELPHIA — Joe Burrow is in a nice, comfy place right now, the kind of place where he doesn’t have to worry about a talk-show host worrying about how he wears his hat.Burrow is the Cincinnati Bengals’ starting quarterback, and he was the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL draft after putting together, for LSU, what might have been the greatest season any college quarterback ever had: a 76.3 completion percentage, 60 touchdown passes, six interceptions, the Heisman Trophy, and the national championship.Now, Cincinnati hasn’t often been a comfy place for a young quarterback over the last quarter-...

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Diego Padres won the second game of a doubleheader on Trent Grisham’s walk-off home run, so that was something.Because otherwise, things are not going well for the Padres.Their brightest spot right now might be the possibility a cortisone shot takes in Mike Clevinger’s elbow and he can pitch for them in the Wild Card Series that begins Wednesday at Petco Park.Oh yeah, the Padres secured the No. 4 seed Friday night and will be the hosts for their first playoff series in 14 years.How that will go and who will be playing for them seems in doubt with every passing day.The l...

Despite loss to playoff-clinching Reds, Twins on doorstop of AL Central title
MINNEAPOLIS — The out-of-town scoreboard looms over right-center field at Target Field, and Friday it relayed plenty of news, some good, some bad, for the Twins. Cleveland won in another walk-off, tightening the AL Central race and keeping the uncertainty over whether they will play next week’s wild-card playoff round at home. The White Sox lost, keeping at least a one-game width between Minnesota and its AL Central pursuers.But a few dozen feet below that scoreboard, the news was much more definitive. To its left? That’s where Mike Moustakas’ two-run homer landed in the fourth inning. To its ...

Dave Hyde: Nothing's changed in series — but Celtics come alive in Game 5
Nothing’s lost.Nothing’s changed.Nothing’s really threatened by Friday night, not really, not beyond the Miami Heat missing out on their first chance to close out Boston in the Eastern Conference finals and advance to the NBA Finals.Sometimes the magic is on the other side this deep in a season. That’s all. No one from the Heat wants to frame the problems and occasional ugliness that happened in Boston’s 121-108 win quite that way.Heat coach Erik Spolestra will talk of defense after surrendering 41 points in the third quarter and of 3-point shooting that fell off the map at 6 for 32 late in th...
