Repairing the refrigerator has become old hat | The Merry Mantonian

In the eternal Olympic competition to keep old appliances running, the score in the Refrigerator Division is now Liz – 5, Fridge – 0. Zip. Bagel. Nada. It’s a shut-out. Living in Manton has its challenges. One of them is finding repair people to come here for, well, almost any reason. If you can find someone qualified to come look at your 25-year-old fridge, it will cost a fortune. “Manton? Way up there? Haven’t been there in years. My ex-wife is related to the Grahams.” “Sir, everyone here is related to the Grahams.” Then the guesstimate. “Hmmm, let’s see, gas to Manton – it’s about 200 miles, right?” “No, less than 50.” “OK, so $200 in gas, parts, expertise, boat payment…I can take a look at it for $350 and give you an estimate on how much to come back and fix it next month.” When we first moved here 30 years ago, we used Scott’s Appliance. Scott was (and is, I assume) fair and professional. But he got too busy to drive to Manton and helped me fix our washer over the phone. He

Simone Biles wins 9th US Championships gymnastics title ahead of Paris Olympics

FORT WORTH, Texas — Gymnastics superstar Simone Biles won her ninth U.S. Championship on Sunday, leaving little doubt that at 27 and a decade-plus into her run atop the sport, she is as good as ever. Biles posted a two-day all-around total of 119.750, nearly six points clear of runner-up Skye Blakely and leaving little doubt that she appears ready to add a second all-around Olympic gold to go with the one she captured in 2016. In front of an audience that included her husband, Chicago Bears safety Jonathan Owens, Biles put on a four-rotation clinic that featured all the trademarks of a typical Biles performance. There was jaw-dropping athleticism mixed with precision and more than a splash of swagger. Biles finished with the highest two-day score on all four events – something she’d done only once before at nationals (2018) – to build plenty of momentum ahead of the Olympic trials later this month in Minneapolis. Her only misstep on Sunday came on vault. She came up short on her Yurchenko double pike – two back flips with her hands clasped behind her knees

SF Giants swept by Yankees after letting late lead slip away

SAN FRANCISCO — The first one, apparently, wasn’t sweet enough. Juan Soto needed a do-over. There was no topping his second bat flip, which hung in the air and twirled for seemingly however many rotations it took for the baseball sent rocketing off of it to find the sea of fans on top of the brick wall in right field. The Yankees’ flamboyant superstar’s second home run of the afternoon sent shockwaves through the sold-out crowd at a sun-drenched Oracle Park, which had been under the reasonable impression until Soto’s ninth-inning blast that they would be heading home happy. The Bronx Bombers are inevitable, even against Camilo Doval. The Giants’ closer was tagged for four runs — Soto providing a pair — and was handed his second blown save of the season in a 7-5 loss that the Giants led by two entering the final frame. After taking two of three from the best team in the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies, to begin the homestand, the Giants were swept over three games by the team with the best record in baseball and finished the

Luis Medina has dazzling season debut in Oakland A’s 3-1 loss to Atlanta Braves

By Bill Trocchi The Associated Press ATLANTA — Right-hander Luis Medina was stellar for the A’s in his first start of the season, but it went for naught Sunday as Oakland’s offense generated just two hits during a 3-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Former A’s catcher Sean Murphy drove in the go-ahead run for the Braves with a bloop double in the seventh inning. Murphy’s double down the right-field line knocked in Adam Duval for what proved to be the winning run and allowed the Braves to take the series 2-1. Atlanta’s Charlie Morton allowed one hit in six scoreless innings, but he ended up with a no-decision when the A’s tied the game in the top of the seventh inning on a home-run by Zack Gelof. Despite the loss, A’s manager Mark Kotsay came away encouraged by what he saw of Medina, who lasted 5 2/3 innings and surrendered two hits – including an Austin Riley bloop double that hit the chalk on the right field line — and just one unearned run. He had six strikeouts and two walks. “It was a

Blake Snell leaves SF Giants’ start vs. Yankees with trainer

SAN FRANCISCO — Blake Snell winced as he fired his 99th pitch Sunday afternoon, and after walking off the mound with the head of the Giants’ training staff, appears to be headed for his second stint on the injured list in as many months with the team. Snell, 31, left his start against the Yankees after 4⅔ innings and was diagnosed with tightness in his left groin. The Giants will have a better sense of his outlook after he undergoes imaging on Thursday, but Snell said the injury felt “the same” as the groin strain that knocked him out for a month earlier this season, and manager Bob Melvin added, “I don’t know how it’s not an IL.” Making only his sixth start of the season, Snell was tagged for three runs on five hits and struck out seven, lowering his ERA to 9.51 from 10.42. Originally signing his two-year, $62 million free-agent contract on March 19, Snell didn’t debut until the fourth series of the season and made only three starts before landing on the IL for the first time. He made another three
