Update from U.S. National Figure Skating Championships: Changing colors — from Amber to silver

Coy Covington | The Gay Blade The U.S. figure skating world was rocked last night as the finals of the Ladies Competition aired live on NBC. Things were shaken like a mad martini with a series of ups and downs, spins and salchows, loops and lutzes. Bradie Tennell has played lady-in-waiting since she won the gold in 2018, but again (deservedly) ascended to the throne by winning the title. Karen Chen (2017 U.S. champion) made an exquisite journey back to the podium to nab the bronze, and...

AUTO REVIEW: 2021 GMC Yukon AT4 — No good at autocrossing…

…but it isn’t supposed to be Casey Williams | Auto Review crwauto@aol.com One of my favorite car magazines essentially called GM’s all-new full-size SUVs losers because they’re apparently not that great on the skid pad. In other words, their grip when being driven like a race car is not good. Well, newsflash: Full-size SUVs weighing 5,677 pounds and packing the underpinnings to rise up and bound over rough trails are rarely very good at autocrossing. But climb aboard the completely...
