October 17, 2018 12:22 PM Joe Arpaio files libel suit against New York Times, claiming it undercut his chances to run again for Senate

In the suit, Arpaio, 86, says that he intends to run for the Senate again in 2020 for the seat vacated by the late Republican senator John McCain. Sen. John Kyl, R-Ariz., is temporarily occupying that seat until a special election takes place. In this year’s GOP primary to replace the retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Arpaio finished third with less than 18 per cent of the vote. Cottle 6

October 16, 2018 12:14 PM All things are possible as the journey begins

As always, the ride is the thing, we’ll figure out the destination as the journey unfolds. I didn’t make it until the end of the ball game last night – go, Brewers! – but I did notice that one starter pitched into the sixth inning and the other guy went seven and hallelujah for that! The part I saw was a good, old fashioned pitching display, some balls 7

October 12, 2018 4:53 AM Eagles find the Giants are the perfect cure for a losing streak

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—All the Philadelphia Eagles needed to get over their Super Bowl hangover was a little more urgency, some big plays and a timely game against the New York Giants. Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes and the Eagles got an early lift from their defence and special teams in beating the struggling Giants 34-13 on Thursday 10

October 10, 2018 10:03 PM Auston Matthews has forced himself into the greatest-player-in-the-world conversation

Auston Matthews is on pace for 143.5 goals this season, but if anybody offers a wager, take the under. John Tavares is on pace for 123, but the same rule applies. The last time two teammates scored at least six goals in their first four games one of them was named Wayne Gretzky, and the other merely reached the Hall of Fame. It’s a good start. Look, the Toronto 9

October 8, 2018 12:57 AM Baker Mayfield leads Browns to OT win over Ravens

And after so many mistakes by its special teams, Cleveland finally got a decisive play to win. The Ravens, who got another strong effort from their defence, also had a chance to win it in the final minute of regulation, but wide receiver Michael Crabtree couldn’t hold onto Flacco’s pass in the back of the end zone. “I should have made that catch,” Crabtree 9

Moon’s office said in a statement later that Pompeo told Moon that the North Korean leader had agreed a second summit with Trump “should be held as soon as possible,” and that talks on the timing and location would continue. In Pyongyang, Pompeo and Kim met for about 3 1/2 hours, first in a business session and then in a 90-minute luncheon that the North 8

Lott said a special FBI team that investigated the fatal shootings of five police officers in Dallas in 2016 and deaths of 59 people and wounding of hundreds more in Las Vegas last year is helping collect evidence from the crime scene at an upscale Florence subdivision. “This is a large crime scene. This is a very large, complex puzzle that we are still 10

September 30, 2018 1:10 AM Alessia Cara named halftime performer for 2018 Grey Cup game in Edmonton

“Performing at the Grey Cup as a Canadian is such an honour,” Cara said in a statement. “Excited to be part of the halftime show and freeze all my fingertips off with you guys.” The native of Brampton won a Grammy Award in January. She followed up her groundbreaking run of six multi-platinum hits with the release of “Growing Pains,” the first single 11

September 27, 2018 4:57 AM Leafs’ power play is lethal ... and other takeaways from win over Canadiens

The Maple Leafs showed off their lethal power play for the first time Wednesday night in Montreal and, well, let’s just say the hype was justified. Two power-play goals and a four-point effort from Mitch Marner proved too much for an energetic Canadiens side, which fell 5-3 at the Bell Centre. And the success on special teams wasn’t limited to the man advantage 10

September 27, 2018 2:43 AM Leafs’ special teams too much for Canadiens

But while the highly lauded power play scored two goals, the club’s defence raised some concerns during a 5-3 win over the Canadiens. Toronto iced its five-weapon unit for the first time this season, with forwards John Tavares, Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews and Nazem Kadri and defenceman Morgan Rielly. Kadri scored with the man advantage late in the first 9
