    (CNN)Arthur Ashe was much more than a gifted athlete on the tennis court: He fought to open doors for African Americans in his sport and was active in the fight to end apartheid in South Africa. He was also deeply engaged in the campaign to de-stigmatize AIDS, the illness that ultimately took his life in February 1993 at the age of 49. Born in 1943, Ashe was brought up in the segregated south in Richmond, Virginia. He first picked up a racket on Blacks-only municipal tennis courts in that city. He attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) on a tennis scholarship and in 1963 became the first African American to represent the United States in the Davis Cup. Prof. Harry EdwardsAshe made history as the first Black man to win a Grand Slam tournament. He won his first Grand Slam title at the 1968 US Open and his second at the 1970 Australian Open.

    Defeated Rep. Madison Cawthorn re-emerged on Thursday for the first time since his election night loss to a rival Republican backed by Cawthorn's Congressional colleagues. The 26-year-old lawmaker promised  'The best is yet to come' in a cryptic Twitter post. His last social media activity was a congratulations to North Carolina state Senator Chuck Edwards, who defeated Cawthorn on Tuesday night in a razor-thin race. And despite numerous public rebukes from members of his own party, it's not clear that the GOP is finished with Cawthorn yet - as indicated by Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy. 'I want to help him. He had some issues but he's young and so you don't wish somebody ill,' the House Minority Leader told CNN on Wednesday evening. McCarthy himself was forced to rebuke Cawthorn in public and private after the young firebrand spurred outrage among Republicans on Capitol Hill for claiming he had been invited to an orgy by senior lawmakers where he witnessed colleagues doing cocaine. But on Wednesday he signaled Cawthorn still had a future within the GOP. 'I want to help...
    Getty Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire On a nationally televised game in crunch time against a conference rival, Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire experienced one of the worst feelings you can feel as an athlete: letting your teammates down. Late in the fourth quarter when the Chiefs were in line to kick a field goal and win a tight ball game on Sunday Night Football, the second-year back fumbled the football and gave possession back to the Baltimore Ravens, who ran out the game clock and won the game by picking up a first down in four plays.

    Gilbert Burns fell short against Kamaru Usman in his very first title fight in the UFC. ‘Durinho’ started the fight really well and had ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ hurt early in the first round. However, the champion came back stronger in round three and finished the fight to defend his belt in spectacular fashion.  Most fighters take some time off after falling in a title fight, but not Burns. Ever since the loss, ‘Durinho’ has maintained that he would like to get back into the octagon as soon as possible and work his way to the top. In the 170-pound division, there is no dearth of top talent that can challenge Burns.  Read: Jon Jones plays a game of ‘Friend-fight-kill’ with UFC rivals Daniel Cormier Chael Sonnen and Israel Adesanya  Can Gilbert Burns bounce back into the win column?

    Patrick Mahomes made it quite clear he’s got all the confidence in the world in Le’Veon Bell moving forward.  Despite taking down the New Orleans Saints in Week 15, the Kansas City Chiefs weren’t all smiles after the final whistle. Unfortunately for head coach Andy Reid and the rest of the team, star rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire went down with an ankle and hip injury, ending his regular season. While the hope is Edwards-Helaire will be able to return for the playoffs, his status moving forward is very much up in the air. With that being the case, the workload is only going to increase for Le’Veon Bell. If you ask Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs fans have nothing to worry about, as the reigning Super Bowl MVP is confident in the veteran speedster. Patrick Mahomes knows Le’Veon Bell can be a playmaker for the Chiefs“I’m extremely confident,” Mahomes said of Bell’s play. “He’s had success everywhere he’s been. I mean, he’s been a top running back for a long time now and I think he fits into our locker room...
    Possible No. 1 pick NBA draft pick Anthony Edwards said something he shouldn’t have, but it’s way too easy to overreact to it. The late buzz has Georgia basketball guard Anthony Edwards going No.1 overall in Wednesday night’s NBA Draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves. He’s a virtual lock to go in the first 3-5 picks, barring something unforeseen. But is it independent grounds for teams to drop Edwards down their draft boards? Hardly, and teams will rely on their full assessments of him beyond an ill-advised quote. All-time greats like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant had a level of passion that gave them an edge over their competitors, and created conflict with teammates. Edwards has said something that suggests he’s not wired that way, as teams consider making him a possible franchise cornerstone. He will surely be asked about it when he’s drafted Wednesday night, but it’s way too easy to make a broad assessment based on something he shouldn’t have said. Next: 2020 NBA Draft Tracker

    RYE, NH (CBS) – Under blue skies, on a beautiful summer Friday, a special group from Gloucester prepped for a day on the water. “It was like I already knew everybody. It was weird I came into it and felt like I was home,” said Thomas Edwards. You may recognize some of the younger crew — siblings Marissa and Tyler McLaughlin — from the reality show Wicked Tuna. But this story, is bigger and better than even the Pinwheel’s best catch. “My savior Thomas and I are going for a boat ride,” said the McLaughlins’ dad, Marty.

    By MELINDA DESLATTE, Associated Press BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Despite a recent spike in Louisiana’s coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, a group of conservative House Republicans on Thursday restarted a stalled effort to override Gov. John Bel Edwards’ disaster orders enacted because of COVID-19. The Republicans said the Democratic governor’s decision to continue restrictions on businesses and churches for another 28 days spurred renewed interest in an extraordinary legal maneuver that would remove Louisiana’s state of emergency and reopen everything without restrictions. Rep. Danny McCormick, a Republican from Oil City, urged his colleagues to support the petition circulated by Shreveport GOP Rep. Alan Seabaugh. The measure requires support from a majority of the House or Senate to revoke the state of emergency. McCormick said Edwards has “shredded” the constitution. “Somewhere along the line the common sense approach has turned into a complete and utter loss of freedom, freedom to work and freedom to provide for our families,” McCormick said on the House floor. “In the name of health, we’re destroying our state. What we must ask ourselves is when will...
    Associated Press POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A man has been charged with killing his wife while her infant twin daughters were inside their South Florida apartment, sheriff's officials said. Kathi Blankenberg's daughters were found safe when deputies responded to a call about a shooting at the Pompano Beach apartment early Monday morning, according to a news release from the Broward Sheriff's Office. Investigators said Philip Edwards, 31, claimed he found his wife, who had been shot. He was arrested that night after officers executed a search warrant and found several firearms, including the one used to kill Blankenberg, 35, inside Edwards' Mercedes Benz, the news release said. The girls were unharmed and are currently in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families. Edwards faces multiple charges, including second-degree murder, child neglect, possession of a weapon and probation violation, sheriff's officials said.

    Louisiana is not ready to further loosen the restrictions placed on businesses meant to control the spread of COVID-19, Gov. John Bel Edwards said Monday. The decision comes amid a recent increase of cases that cannot be explained by an increase in the number of tests. The number of COVID-19 patients in hospitals also has been rising, and on Monday, the state reported its largest increase of hospitalizations since April. The rising number of patients in hospitals, which was 630 at last count, is particularly troubling, though there are still enough hospital beds in every region to treat the patients that are coming in, officials said. "It is a trend in the wrong direction," Edwards said. Louisiana has recorded more than 3,000 deaths from COVID-19 and over 50,000 total cases since the pandemic began. Officials believe almost 40,000 COVID-19 patients have recovered. Louisiana since June 5 has been in “phase two” of the federal government’s road map to lifting restrictions and will remain at that level of restriction for another month. Under phase two, businesses...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards on Monday said he is postponing the date for his state to move into its third reopening phase for at least 28 days amid a spike in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations over the past two weeks. Out of 23 states across the country experiencing an increase in COVID-19, Louisiana ranks seventh, the governor’s office said. Neighboring states such as Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Georgia are also experiencing spikes in coronavirus. “Louisiana reached two sad milestones today as we surpassed 3,000 deaths and 50,000 positive tests in our state,” Edwards said in a press release. “It is clear that COVID is alive and well in Louisiana, and as we see more people testing positive and admitted to hospitals, we simply are not ready to move to the next phase, and ease restrictions further as businesses open widely.” Prior to Edwards’ announcement, the state was set to enter Phase 3 of reopening on Saturday. The Democratic governor announced 461 new coronavirus cases and 11 new deaths. He said when making the announcement Monday the spike in cases...
    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) said Monday he is pushing back the state's next reopening phase for at least four weeks as its number of coronavirus cases spikes.  Edwards said Louisiana will remain in phase two of its reopening for another 28 days, and in two weeks, officials will conduct “another deep data dive” to assess whether or not the state can push forward to the next phase. He announced 461 new coronavirus cases, pushing the state’s total over 50,000. He also announced 11 new deaths, bringing Louisiana's total fatalities to more than 3,000  The governor said the case growth is “more than can be fairly attributed to the growth in testing.”  “It’s pretty clear that we now have more COVID-19 across the state of Louisiana,” he said, noting that the “vast majority” of new cases are related to community spread. Statewide, there are 630 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, including 69 on ventilators. The number of hospitalized patients is the most in the state since June 2, Edwards said.  “This is the number that concerns me the most, not that...
    EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. -- Residents of a southwestern Illinois community want a statue of the state's third governor removed from a public plaza, arguing that he owned slaves and used his power to protect the practice.Nearly 500 people have joined a Facebook group that supports petitioning the city of Edwardsville to tear down a Ninian Edwards statue and also rename a plaza with his moniker, according to The Edwardsville Intelligencer."Edwards' legacy is one of causing misery and pain to thousands of Black Americans," the group said. "Publicly honoring Edwards, as the city currently does, honors his harmful, racist beliefs and actions."Edwards, who died in 1833, is also the namesake of Edwardsville, but residents aren't pushing to rename the community of about 24,000 people roughly 25 miles from St. Louis.Lifelong Edwardsville resident Kirk Schlueter started the effort after researching Edwards' history."This is just one way we can help the civil rights movement that is happening all over the nation and the world," he said. "This is really a multiracial movement for equality."Confederate monuments and other statues have been removed in the wake...
    DOWNTOWN — The city is allowing more businesses to open this week — but many Downtown businesses are taking their time after recent unrest. Chicago moved into Phase 3 of its reopening plan Wednesday, allowing restaurants to open for outdoor dining and for non-essential retail stores to come back. But the Loop and River North also saw looting and vandalism over the weekend, leaving many storefronts damaged. Michael Edwards, president and CEO of the Chicago Loop Alliance, said unrest coming in the middle of a pandemic introduced another set of concerns for business owners to address. He doesn’t see local businesses participating fully in the reopening for a few days.  “It’s a very confusing time for everyone, and especially business owners who are starting to get their heads around the pandemic and how they might adjust to that,” Edwards said. “Of course, the protests over the weekend and some of the damage that was done sort of complicated matters significantly.” The physical conditions of some businesses means they might not be ready to reopen, Edwards said. “I think they’re all probably...
