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.

After the Republicans lost the 2012 presidential election with a hard-line policy on immigration and a multimillionaire investment banker as their nominee, party leaders concluded in an "autopsy" that survival required, among other things, winning over Latino voters and erasing the perception they are the party of the rich. They did not reckon on Donald Trump. The reality TV star and real estate developer boasted about his wealth and insulted Mexican migrants as he announced last week he was entering the 2016 GOP race for president.

WHEN THE men fighting World War I sought to express the stupidity and horror of what they were witnessing, their most effective words came in the form of poetry. World War I produced "the war poets," Gibson and Owen and Sassoon, the men who "trembled, cold with dread, lest they wake up dead. " And often did. This we keep in mind as we watch the moving, mournful "Testament of Youth," whose lush visuals seek to find some of that poetry in the memoir of Vera Brittain, brought to life with improbable power in this well-judged adaptation by James Kent, featuring Alicia Vikander as Brittain.

THE 76ERS blended the old with the new, the winning of the past with the rebuilding of the present as they unveiled the team's new uniforms in front of a Wells Farco Center crowd estimated at 2,500. Legends Allen Iverson, Billy Cunningham, Moses Malone and Bobby Jones were among the former players who spoke of the rich tradition of the organization and a fan base that they all considered the best they ever encountered. In another attempt by the organization to bridge the gap between the glory years and the recent ones that have produced only 37 wins over the past two seasons, the players took turns at the microphone as the team tried to blend the best features of its uniforms of the glory days of the 1960s, '70s and '80s.

LAS VEGAS – So who is Kristaps Porzingis? Last summer, the 7-foot-1 power forward, with guard-like skills, received a lottery-pick guarantee from the Orlando Magic if he opted to remain in the 2014 draft. Porzingis instead withdrew his name and played another season for Baloncesto Sevilla of the Asociacion de Clubs de Baloncesto in Spain and was named Eurocup rising star for this past season. With that extra season of development, the 19-year-old believes the time is right to start his NBA career.

There is no mystery about why the Eagles - let's get specific here, we're talking about Chip Kelly - cut Evan Mathis on Thursday. Mathis wanted a new contract. He thought he deserved one, and he made that desire public. Kelly doesn't want any players on his team thinking about anything but football, which means he doesn't want them thinking about how much money they're making and he certainly doesn't want them talking publicly about it, which means Mathis was bound to be gone sooner or later.

At the end of her freshman year, Gabby Fornia met with coach Jill McCarthy to review her first season of high school lacrosse. They talked about what went right for Fornia that season, what went wrong. Fornia talked about what she wanted to improve on. "The first thing she told me was, 'I want to make my teammates better. I want to improve my passing, look to thread the needle more and just assist more.' " The words were prophetic. Fornia wanted more assists this year.

ADULT-FILM actress Mary Carey will be in town for a double jubilee this weekend as she celebrates her birthday and the 11th anniversary of the Gold Club (1416 Chancellor St.) in Center City. Carey, famous for her flourishing career in porn, appearances on the VH1 reality-TV series "Celebrity Rehab" and for an unsuccessful bid for governor of California in 2003, has new aspirations, including a possible run for mayor of Philadelphia. During a phone interview yesterday, Carey told me that she's likely abandoned her plans to run for president of the United States - a job for which she becomes eligible when she turns 35 on Monday.

CINCINNATI - Ryne Sandberg, who went to 10 All-Star games in his Hall of Fame career, sat in the visiting dugout at Great American Ball Park yesterday afternoon and took a few seconds to digest the question. Cincinnati will play host to the 2015 All-Star Game on July 14. Who will be the Phillies' representative? "I'd say Cole Hamels. I'd say [Jonathan Papelbon]," Sandberg said, when asked for candidates. "[Aaron] Harang. Possibly a Freddy Galvis. " The third round of balloting results came in earlier in the day, and, for the third straight week, no Phillies were among the top five vote-getters at any of the infield positions, or at catcher, or in the top 15 among outfielders.

THE YEAR of the shortstop. That's an easy way to classify the first round of the 2015 Major League Baseball draft. Shortstops were selected with each of the first three picks. And the Phillies, at No. 10, selected a high school shortstop, Cornelius Randolph from Griffin High School in Georgia. But he won't be playing much shortstop from here on out. Which should quell the immediate reaction of bewilderment at why the Phillies took a shortstop, with 2013 first-rounder J.P. Crawford doing so well at Double A Reading.
