A team of court-appointed attorneys has spent the past year investigating, safeguarding and liquidating disgraced former lawyer Alex Murdaugh’s assets to raise nearly $1.3 million — so far — for his alleged victims and creditors. Now, they want to get paid themselves.
What many Americans hoped would be the first normal holiday season in three years has instead been thrown into crisis by inflation, with Christmas on the horizon
What many Americans hoped would be the first normal holiday season in three years has instead been thrown into crisis by inflation, with Christmas on the horizon. Food banks and charities across the country are reporting higher than expected levels of food insecurity as prices rise and food becomes less accessible to millions of American families. Although the pandemic has largely faded, months of rising prices have driven working families back to the food bank lines. And that's left charitable organizations struggling to meet the demand.

American soccer hopes to be ascendant, to challenge the NFL, Major League Baseball and the NBA in the competition for U.S. market share
American soccer hopes to be ascendant, to challenge the NFL, Major League Baseball and the NBA in the competition for U.S. market share. Reaching the final 16 with Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Iran was another step for a team whose success is measured in television viewers and buzz along with final scores. A victory on Saturday against the Netherlands would put the U.S. in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002. The status of Christian Pulisic is uncertain after he bruised his pelvis crashing into the goalkeeper while scoring against Iran. Read moreIran win another step as U.S. soccer tries to boost interest
The PGA Tour referred to Rory McIlroy and Lydia Ko as golf royalty because they ruled the golf world this year. They had great years, no doubt. But neither won a major. And when it comes the PGA Tour, such a label dismisses Scottie Scheffler and ignores Cameron Smith. Both won more than McIlroy. Each won a major.

And mostly it's for his strong voice of support for the PGA Tour in its fight with LIV Golf. Read moreColumn: 3 great years in golf, 2 of them already forgotten
