It's always been known that President Reagan was in touch with stars, but up until now many Americans had thought that just meant poolside chats with Charlton Heston and Old Blue Eyes. Now it turns out the President, via Nancy Reagan's astrologer, was in touch with the real stars. This information could help explain a lot. Future historians need not wonder why Mr. Reagan once had himself sworn in as California's governor at midnight. It wasn't because he was having trouble sleeping, it wasn't because he was shooting for the evening news in Tokyo.

JEREMY RENNER is an overnight sensation 20 years in the making. His movie career began in 1995 with a role in "National Lampoon's Senior Trip" and he moved between movies and TV shows (guest spots on "CSI," "Angel," "House") over the next dozen years. A starring role as the creepy, cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the 2002 movie "Dahmer" didn't make him a household name nor did his own short-lived network TV series "The Unusuals. " But then came his Academy Award-nominated performance in "The Hurt Locker," and BANG!

The Dallas Stars knew they had to contain St. Louis' Pierre Turgeon, Keith Tkachuk and Scott Young. But Marty Reasoner? Reasoner, who played nearly as many games this season in the minors as he did the NHL, set up the Blues' first goal and scored the next two as visiting St. Louis beat the Stars, 4-2, last night in the opener of the second-round series. "I don't think Dallas was too worried about me," said Reasoner, who played in only one of six games in the first round.

The Dallas Stars are rounding into playoff form and they sent that message to the rest of the league with a 5-1 victory over visiting Ottawa yesterday. "It's a statement that we're not as bad as everyone thinks," Stars captain Derian Hatcher said. The Stars lead the Pacific Division, but have struggled to perform at the level that carried the team to the Stanley Cup finals the last two seasons. The Stars are 5-2-1 in their last eight games. "We're trying to send a message to ourselves that we're a good team that can compete against anybody and everybody," Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said.

It wasn't long ago that 20 wins in a season would have been an accomplishment for Dallas. The Stars got their league-leading 11th road win and their 20th victory already this season last night as Pat Verbeek set up three goals against his former club in a 4-1 win over the Hartford Whalers. "As a group, we've been able to play a consistent game," Dallas forward Pat Verbeek said. "We have some real experienced players, guys who have won and can keep it on an even keel. " Goalie Arturs Irbe stopped 30 shots.

DAMIEN WILKINS popped into the sequestered media room for just a few seconds Thursday and surveyed the scene in the depths of Philadelphia University's Gallagher Center. "Hey old man, get in here," said Marc Hughes, the head coach of Team Trained To Go. Wilkins declined. "You know why I'm here," Wilkins replied, already heading back out through the doorway. "Yeah," Hughes said. "That two million.

The 44-year-old Kansas City, Kan., native - who likes to describe himself as openly straight - has Modern Family to thank for his two Emmy Awards and a role as Duke, the Newfoundland dog,...

SAN DIEGO - Kris Bryant scanned the National League clubhouse before the 87th All-Star Game, and the 24-year-old Cubs star saw colors. Bright colors. The players' cleats were orange and lime green, one sign of how Bryant said his generation is "way different. " Baseball does not reward individuality, but as dozens of the game's best young players gathered this week in California, they vowed to change it. It is difficult to remember a time with such a strong group of budding superstars all at once, and it was on display Tuesday in the American League's 4-2 win at Petco Park.

SAN DIEGO - Odubel Herrera Sr. is a farmer in Venezuela, a country so ravaged by economic crises that its residents ransack supermarkets for food and jump borders to find medicine. He grows guava and passion fruits in San Jose, a town in eastern Venezuela. He looks after some cows. And, whenever he can, he watches his 24-year-old son play baseball. The elder Herrera once played. "I was the second baseman in a local league," he said, "and I was pretty good. I was fast. " He laughed because this was a surreal moment, a 50-year-old farmer from a foreign land surrounded by the National League's best players in a hotel ballroom.

EUGENE, Ore. - When former West Catholic High School and University of Southern California star Nia Ali claimed a place in the women's 100-meter hurdles final with a 12.68 second place in her semifinal Friday afternoon at the Olympic trials, it proved to be just the beginning.

If your humble narrator were a bratty 9-year-old, he would perhaps look at the onetime tween sensations Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas' "Future Now" tour and annoyingly tease, "Demi and Nick, sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g. ...

"I'm delighted that there's a gay character," Takei told The Hollywood Reporter. "Unfortunately, it's a twisting of Gene [ Roddenberry ]'s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it's really unfortunate. " Takei said Roddenberry was very supportive of the LGBT movement, but envisioned Sulu as heterosexual. But not an active heterosexual like Captain Kirk.

Nineteen months before Odubel Herrera became an all-star outfielder, a Major League Baseball official leaned into a microphone at the front of a San Diego hotel ballroom to signal the eighth selection in the annual Rule 5 draft. The pick, announced as "David Herrera," cost the Phillies $50,000. Everyone soon learned his real name and the frenetic style of play associated with it. In Venezuela, they called him "El Torito," and his teammates here liked the sound of that. Now, they can call him an all-star.
