THE BLADE/LORI KING Enlarge | Buy This Image Alexisjoy Haynes has two kids, ages 4 and 14, to feed. Ms. Haynes, a 34-year-old Toledo resident who works as a medical assistant and phlebotomist, has been trying to set child-support payments for her 4-year-old to make it easier to pay her grocery bills, which can spike when her children are hungry.

SYDNEY: Gymnastics Australia on Tuesday unveiled new child safety guidelines and appointed its first coordinator to educate those involved in the sport about appropriate behaviour, in the wake of the US abuse scandal. The governing body said that, with 91 percent of the sport's more than 220,000 athletes aged under 12, "child safety is the highest priority". Gymnastics Australia (GA) chief Kitty Chiller told national broadcaster ABC the new National Child Safety Commitment Statement would be added to existing guidelines. "What we are doing now is formalising practices that have already been in place," Chiller said, adding that the sport did not have ongoing issues with child abuse.
