BANNING LEGAL BROTHELS
PAHRUMP, Nev. — Nevada confronts its status as the only place in America where you legally pay someone for sex as a coalition of religious groups and anti-sex trafficking activists pushes referendums to ban brothels and the state’s most famous pimp runs for a seat in the state Legislature.

LAS VEGAS — Nevada’s Dean Heller is considered the vulnerable Republican senator seeking re-election this year, but he has an easy primary battle Tuesday thanks to President Donald Trump. Heller was being challenged from the right by Danny Tarkanian, but Trump persuaded him to drop out of the race. Tarkanian is running for a House seat, instead. His exit leaves a contentious Democratic battle for governor as Nevada’s most closely watched race Tuesday. By Michelle L. Price. SENT: 860 words, photos.
NERDWALLET-LIZ WESTON-TAXES IN RETIREMENT

GLF--TIM DAHLBERG-TIGER WOODS
His irons are sublime, his driver for the most part long and straight. If we’ve learned anything from his latest comeback, Tiger Woods can still putt a bit, too. A decade ago that would have made him the overwhelming pick to win the U.S. Open. Heck, a decade ago he won the U.S. Open basically on one leg for what, incredibly enough, was his last major championship win. But as Woods docks his yacht near Shinnecock Hills this week he’s still a golfing enigma of sorts. By Tim Dahlberg. SENT: 910 words, photos.
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — It’s been a tough start to the season for the Indiana Fever. The team has lost its first eight games — the worst start in franchise history. Indiana had a good shot at its first victory Sunday but fell to New York 78-75. With the game tied in the final 20 seconds, the Fever couldn’t get a much-needed stop and then didn’t get a good look on the other end to try and tie the game. By Doug Feinberg.

NEW YORK — Seth Lugo pitched six dominant innings in a stellar spot start, Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer off Luis Severino, and the New York Mets beat the Yankees 2-0 to snap an eight-game skid. Frazier went deep for the second consecutive night to help the Mets prevent a Subway Series sweep at Citi Field. They ended a 10-game home losing streak and avoided an 0-9 homestand that would have matched the worst in team history. By Mike Fitzpatrick. SENT: 960 words, photos.
