Mariners announce inaugural ON BASE Hometown Nine class

Nine student athletes from the Puget Sound area were announced Friday as the inaugural class of the Mariners ON BASE Hometown Nine.

The program was created this summer, with the input of players, to support kids from underserved communities of color as they further their baseball and softball careers, while also helping them advance their education.

Each of the nine incoming eighth-graders, who the Mariners have committed to through their senior years, will receive mentorship from the club’s players and front office staff as they navigate their high school careers both on the field and in the classroom.

As part of the Mariners’ effort to promote equity and accessibility in the sport, the young athletes will also receive financial support to cover the costs of competing, to help bridge the gap that prevents more diverse participation in elite baseball and softball programs.

TikTok Warns Half Its User Base at Stake Under Trump Ban, Says Fashion Strategy Won’t Change

TikTok filed a preliminary injunction Wednesday in a Washington D.C. court to block the Trump administration’s ban on downloads, now postponed to this Sunday just before midnight.

The developer is playing defense, hoping to keep the TikTok app available in app stores run by Google and Apple, while a proposed deal by Oracle and Walmart continues playing out. Interim head Vanessa Pappas painted a bleak picture, warning that the ban would cause “irreparable harm” to the business.

According to the filing, “If allowed to remain in place, the Prohibitions will irreversibly destroy the TikTok business in the United States: They will devastate TikTok’s user base and competitive position, destroy the goodwill necessary for TikTok to maintain commercial partners in the United States and cripple Plaintiffs’ ability to attract and retain talent.”

Pappas disclosed that a ban may cost TikTok as much as half of its user base — which numbers

Local businesses struggle to stay open as regulations have limited customer base | Coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic is not exactly the best time to turn away business. But Jorge Velasquez, owner of Mayta’s Peruvian Cuisine in the Westview Shopping Center, has had to do so multiple times in recent months.

Currently allowed to operate at only 50 percent capacity, the restaurant is left with only about 20 seats indoors, and 16 outside.

“For us, for a small business, it’s really killing us,” Velasquez said. “It’s a very difficult time.”

The restaurant, like many small businesses, has reopened under new rules and regulations, but is still operating far from normal. With government funding long gone, and the pandemic still going, some businesses haven’t been able to get back on their feet.

On Monday, those businesses took another hit as County Executive Jan Gardner announced the county would not follow Gov. Larry Hogan’s orders of increasing capacity to 75 percent for restaurants and bars.

Joe Biden works his union base from central Pennsylvania on Labor Day; here’s why that matters

HARRISBURG – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spent most of his Labor Day in southcentral Pennsylvania Monday, holding a backyard chat with local labor leaders in Lancaster, and later headlining a Facebook Live event targeted at AFL-CIO members nationally from downtown Harrisburg.

In keeping with a pandemic-limited campaign, these were low-wattage events that did not grab a lot of attention from the general public. At 5 p.m., a crowd estimated at about 50 Biden supporters waited outside the state AFL-CIO state headquarters on North 2nd Street, hoping for a glimpse of Biden as he left.

Biden waved to them from an upper-story window before departing the union offices. It was the closest thing to mixing with the public that the campaign had scheduled for a holiday weekend when candidates traditionally like to touch as many voters as they can.

Inside the offices, however, Biden also met one-on-one with a who’s
