NIXA, MO. • Missouri’s new governor introduced a $27.6 billion budget plan Thursday that offers a slight boost in cash for public schools, but could boot as many as 21,000 elderly and disabled residents out of nursing home and home care programs. The spending plan also cuts millions from higher education and public school transportation. Unveiling his first budget blueprint at a preschool in Nixa, Republican Eric Greitens said he is “committed to making the tough decisions necessary to bring highpaying jobs to Missouri while spending our tax dollars more wisely.” The outline would spend $336 million more than the current budget, but it would not raise taxes and would not ofer raises to state workers, who are the

Jay Nixon reduced 5,100 positions over the past eight years. Although Greitens blames the federal Afordable Care Act for forcing spending reductions in the current and proposed budget, a summary shows he would spend about $130 million more in state funds in the department that oversees Medicaid funding. Missouri lawmakers have declined to

JEFFERSON CITY • A moment long dreaded by the state’s labor unions and their supporters arrived Thursday, as Missouri lawmakers sent a proposal known as “right to work” to a Republican governor who has promised for months that he would sign it. When he does, Missouri will become the 28th right-to-work state, marking the first time in U.S. history that more than half of the nation’s workforce lives in states with such laws. The fast-tracked bill, which will prohibit unions from requiring workers to pay dues as a condition of employment, has been deemed both a solution for the state’s stagnant job growth and

Gov. Eric Greitens on Thursday blamed Obamacare for helping create the state’s “broken” budget. It was at least the third time since taking office on Jan. 9 that Greitens has publicly blamed former President Barack Obama’s health reform law without explaining how it contributed to the state’s fiscal woes. Greitens unveiled his budget proposal Thursday. On Thursday in Nixa, the new governor quantified the financial burden, asserting the state is “required by

Old coach baled by P.E. treatment Community college system cuts requirement amid concern over graduation rate TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

After a few minutes on the phone with Bob Nelson, I felt like I was talking to my dad. The connection makes sense. Nelson, 78, is a retired teacher and coach who lives in Kirkwood. He’s just a couple of years older than my father, who is also a retired teacher and coach. Make that semi-retired. Every year, my dad ends up taking a call from one of his old players who is now a coach and needs some help with this team or that. This year, he’s coaching seventh-grade basketball. But back to Nelson. He’s fired up because the school where he spent most of his career — St. Louis Community College — made a change to board policy on graduation requirements that he thinks is short-sighted. On Jan. 19, the Board of Trustees of the community college voted 4-3 to do away with the requirement that a student take two credit hours of physical education as a graduation requirement. For 35 years, much of it at St. Louis

Community College at Forest Park, Nelson taught P.E. and coached basketball. He was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 1992. Later, he served on the board of the community college. When Nelson heard the board was planning to cut the P.E. graduation requirement, he went to Facebook and fired up his Rolodex and started an email campaign to stop the change in its tracks. He fell one vote short. “It’s really a sad situation,” Nelson says. “Our society is fat. We’re overweight, and we need physical education.” The numbers bear him out. Nationally, obesity rates among young people have been slowly rising over the past decade. The most recent rate, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics, is 17.2 percent, up from about 14 percent in 2000. The statistics rise among African-American young people. Missouri ties for the 10th-highest adult obesity rate in the country, at 32.4 percent. So why the change? It comes down to money. A few years ago, Missouri started awarding some of its funding to colleges and universities based on a performancefunding model. Part of that model measures graduation rates, and on that metric,

St. Louis Community College was doing poorly, in part because students were leaving the school without completing their P.E. requirement. In 2011, for instance, nearly 50 percent of students who left St. Louis Community College before graduating did so without completing the two credit hours of P.E. required for graduation. The proposal to cut that requirement came from the faculty governance council. Among the council’s findings, said Andrew Langrehr, vice chancellor of academic affairs, is that 85 percent of the transfer students who start their college education at St. Louis Community College but finish at a four-year school, end up at a school that doesn’t have a physical education graduation requirement. None of the top five schools that take St. Louis Community College graduates have the requirement. “I think it puts us in line with where the national trend is,” Langrehr said. The trend that matters to Nelson is the obesity epidemic. He still has occasion to walk the halls at one of the local community colleges, and, at least in his perspective, students are quite a bit bigger than back in his coaching heyday. This is how it is with old coaches.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOWS

LOTTERY

Nothing is ever the same as it was 20 years ago. It doesn’t mean they’re wrong. But in listening to Nelson, I was reminded of a conversation with my dad during a baseball game not long ago when he lamented the “bunt” as a lost art. In a time in which our state’s colleges and universities are absorbing massive cuts in their state budgets, coming on the heels of declining funding as a percentage of the state budget for more than a decade, there are likely more important priorities than whether students hoping for a career in growing health-care or tech fields have to take a health and fitness class. Still, to Nelson, this is a big deal. And the change says something about changing societal values. St. Louis Community College still has a robust physical education curriculum, and individual programs are free to require it as many of them currently do, but the change in board policy could have lasting efects, Nelson says. “Physical education is needed more than ever,” he says. “If you take away the graduation requirement, the students probably won’t sign up. It’s a sad thing.”

Post-Dispatch reporter wins Guild writing award BY MICHELE MUNZ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Joel Currier, who has been a reporter at the Post-Dispatch since 2005, has won the United Media Guild’s 2016 Terry Hughes Award for writing. Currier was awarded the honor Thursday night at a Guild awards ceremony downtown. The guild represents media workers, and the contest is open to writers for any St. Louis publication. Currier was chosen by a Currier panel of past winners. Hughes was a Post-Dispatch columnist who died of breast cancer in 1991 at age 36. Her columns included the perspectives of everyday people and their struggles, promoting understanding in the community. For the first part of last year, Currier covered breaking news. In May, he switched to covering the state circuit courts in St. Louis and St. Louis County. Despite the demand of covering the daily cases in these two busy courts, Currier was able to look outside the courthouse and provide close-up views to stories behind the scenes. He wrote about Jadda Kennedy, a

young mother who was mistaken for someone else and held without bail for one year on a murder charge before charges were abruptly dropped; George Allen, a mentally ill man who died a few years after spending three decades in prison for a murder conviction that was ultimately overturned; and a south St. Louis County man suspected of accidentally killing his 84-year-old neighbor, Betty Knight, as she sat on her back porch with her husband of more than six decades. Currier, 39, has also worked the night shift as a crime reporter and covered crime and courts in St. Charles County. He has a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, where he wrote for the Columbia Missourian. He was a summer intern in 2004 at the Post-Dispatch, and he served as the editor for two weekly papers covering the eastern suburbs of Syracuse, N.Y. Aside from work, Currier has been a member of the Ambassadors of Harmony, a 130-man chorus, since 2005; and Vocal Edge, an eight-man a cappella group, since 2009. He and his wife have one daughter, who just celebrated her first birthday. Michele Munz • 314-340-8263 @michelemunz on Twitter mmunz@post-dispatch.com

LAW & ORDER EAST ST. LOUIS > Man who preyed on lonely women gets prison term • A Nigerian man who defrauded hundreds of lonely U.S. women online was sentenced in federal court here Thursday to 27 years in prison and ordered to repay $1.7 million. Olayinka Ilumsa Sunmola, of Lagos, bilked dozens in Missouri and Illinois alone, driving some to bankruptcy and at least one to the Sunmola brink of suicide, oicials said. He pleaded guilty in March to assorted fraud, conspiracy and extortion charges. Sunmola and others pretended to be members of the U.S. military stationed overseas, or businessmen working there, oicials said. They used men’s photos found on the internet, some on memorial websites for the dead, to woo “soul mates” with emails, instant messages, lowers, candy and other gifts. Some victims bought wedding gowns and sent the men money until their assets were gone, prosecutors said. Sunmola persuaded some to send sexually explicit photos or videos that he used for blackmail; in one case, he shared pictures anyway with relatives of a woman who had paid. His money went for lavish parties, vehicles and properties in South Africa and Nigeria, prosecutors said. ST. LOUIS > Shooting victim uncooperative with police • Police said a man, 44, found shot in the chest about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 1500 block of Billups Avenue was not providing much help to investigators. He was in critical but stable condition at a hospital. The victim was walking in the street and refused to tell police exactly where it happened or anything about the attacker.

The suit claims that companies used pop-up ads falsely claiming that consumers’ computers needed repair. They were told to call a toll-free number claiming to be associated with well-known companies, such as Apple or Microsoft, but the calls were routed to a boiler room in India where scammers tried to get them to pay for ixes.

BETHALTO > More charges over hidden church cameras • New evidence has been found, and charges added, against David L. Von Bergen, 59, a former church elder accused of hiding cameras at Zion Lutheran Church here, Madison Bergen County prosecutors said Thursday. The additional charges allege that Von Bergen recorded two girls, 4 and 9, plus four boys and girls ages 4 to 15, along with three adult women and one adult man. They say the adult women were recorded in the bathroom. In all, Von Bergen faces six counts of production of child pornography, four of possession of child pornography and 11 of unauthorized video recording. He was initially charged in January 2016 with a felony conspiracy charge and unauthorized

recording. While Von Bergen was attempting to retrieve the cameras in December 2015, he was confronted by thenpastor Kale Hanson, 36, of Bethalto, who agreed to get rid of evidence by destroying the camera memory cards, prosecutors said. A felony conspiracy count is pending against Hanson.

scam involving misleading computer pop-up ads are being targeted again, a St. Louis lawyer, Claire Schenk, warned this week. As receiver for companies sued by the Federal Trade Commission last fall, Schenk warned in an online notice that callers were telling victims that the service they purchased as part of the previous scam wasn’t working and that they were due a refund. The caller requests access to the victim’s computer, ostensibly to refund money. But the consumers are then told that they received an overpayment of up to $1,500 and need to wire it back, Schenk wrote. She said the callers may use “high pressure” tactics.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Police say cable installer used stolen credit card • A cable installer was arrested after he used a credit card stolen from a St. Louis County home at a mall shoe store — and provided his phone number to get credit on his own rewards card, police said. Thomas Walker Schneider, 23, of the 1300 block of Brandywine Lane in St. Peters, was charged Jan. 25 with receiving stolen property, a felony. According to a court record, the Visa card was taken from a bedroom dresser in a home in Shrewsbury on a day when Schneider was there as an installer for Charter Communications. Police said the card was later used at diferent locations, including to make three purchases at West County Center in Des Peres. In one instance last July, police said, Schneider used the stolen card at the shoe store and gave his own phone number to get rewards card credit. The shoe store clerk identiied Schneider from a photo lineup, police said. He also was identiied in photos taken at the shopping mall, police said. Bail was set at $5,000. A photo of Schneider was not immediately available.

Conlict prompts handof of 3 death penalty cases BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office has handed of at least three death penalty murder cases to the state attorney general to avoid a conflict because a public defender who had been assigned to them now works for Gardner. On Wednesday, St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer approved Gardner’s motion for a special prosecutor.

One of Gardner’s top assistants, Robert E. Steele, is a former public defender who recently withdrew as the defense counsel for Dominic Arrington, Eric Lawson and Antonio Muldrew. A spokesman for the Attorney General Josh Hawley confirmed this week that the office would take over Arrington’s, Lawson’s and Muldrew’s trials. Prosecutors here already had announced their intent to seek death in those cases, but it was not clear

Thursday if Hawley’s oice would pursue capital punishment. Arrington, now 40, of Riverview, awaits trial on charges of stabbing and strangling April Fields, 25, of Berkeley after hiding in the back seat of her car outside her child’s day care. Fields was later found dead Jan. 8, 2014, outside an apartment complex near the Mississippi River. Lawson, 28, was charged in 2012 with murdering his ex-girlfriend, her mother and his 10-month-old

son. Police have said that in May 2012, Lawson shot Gwendolyn Ray, 50, and her daughter, Breiana Ray, 22, and set an apartment fire that killed his son, Aiden. Muldrew, 38, faces charges of fatally shooting a Dutchtown corner store clerk in 2014. Abdulrauf Kadir, 32, an Ethiopian refugee, was shot to death during a store robbery. Also on Wednesday, Stelzer appointed Hawley’s office to handle the double murder trial of Rey

Hernandez, 20, charged with fatally shooting James Cobb, 23, and Haris Hajdarevic, 22, in October 2015 in the 4400 block of Taft Avenue. Authorities say one of Gardner’s other top assistants, former public defender Annette Llewellyn, had been assigned to work on Hernandez’s case. Last month, St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison agreed to appoint the attorney general’s office as special prosecutor in the murder retrial of Reginald

Clemons, charged in the 1991 killings of two sisters on the Chain of Rocks Bridge. Former St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce’s oice argued for the move, saying the oice lacked resources to retry Clemons because of expected turnover once Gardner took office at the start of this year.

Service returning to normal after Metro East water main break, boil order WATER • FROM A1

normal pressure. Karen Cotton, Illinois American spokeswoman, said the company intended to restore full service by Thursday evening. The boil order will remain in efect for another day or two to clear the system of potential contamination. The state requires boiling of water intended for drinking or cooking whenever system pressure falls below 20 pounds per square inch, about onethird of standard pressure. The boil order covers Belleville, Columbia, Swansea, Shiloh, Millstadt and Waterloo. Many, but not all, of the area’s schools canceled classes because of it. Cotton said the break was at Highway 161 and Patricia Lane, south of Old Caseyville Road. Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert said pressure fell sharply throughout the city, then began rising again by late morning. “Some places had no water pressure after it happened,” Eckert said. “I got the first text on this shortly before 7 a.m.” Eckert said the city contacted neighboring fire departments with tanker trucks to be ready to assist

if necessary. Illinois American is asking residents of the affected areas to bring water to a rolling boil for five minutes before using it for drinking or cooking. The water is OK for bathing, washing and other common uses.

MANY SCHOOLS CLOSED, HOSPITALS COPING All schools within Belleville School District 118 closed, and the district promised Thursday morning to care for students who already had left for school. Althoff Catholic High School and Whiteside elementary and middle schools were among the area’s schools also closed. Belleville Township District 201, which operates the East and West high schools, canceled the school day before it began, said Superintendent Jeff Dosier. The district has about 5,000 students. Dosier said the district plans to reopen Friday with preparations for cooking and drinking water, and will notify students early in the morning if plans change. Dosier said at 3 p.m. that water pressure is almost back to normal at the schools, although the boil order remains.

He compared the decision to the sort made on snow days. “We anticipate having class Friday,” he said. “We have bottled water and the cafeteria staf is ready. We urge students to bring their own water, too.” Columbia and Waterloo public schools held classes Thursday. Employees covered water fountains and took other precautions, and made bottled water available. Brian Charron, Waterloo schools superintendent, said the buildings had reduced water pressure, but still enough to operate the lavatories. Charron said Belleville schools, much closer to the break, lost almost all pressure. Charron said the district will supply bottled water to students again Friday. Spokeswomen for Memorial and St. Elizabeth’s hospitals said both were operating normally with procedures for boil orders. The St. Elizabeth’s spokeswoman said hospital staff was distributing bottled water to patients and making other accommodations. “We are fully functioning,” she said. Early Thursday, Memorial Hospital diverted some ambulance arrivals and

surgeries to its hospital in Shiloh, but restored regular operations by afternoon, a spokeswoman said. All surgeries scheduled for Friday will proceed. Cotton, of Illinois American, described the 24inch pipe as “a large service main” and said the system only has a few lines that are 30 inches in diameter. She said the break affected about 30,000 customers, although she noted that Columbia, Millstadt and Waterloo buy water for their residents, meaning that each whole city is one “customer.” Thus, the 75,000 residents affected is an estimate, she said. Jennifer Meyer, environmental director for the St. Clair County Health Department, said the county quickly issued instructions to restaurants upon learning of the break. Meyer said restaurants must boil all water used in cooking and cannot operate cofee machines, ice makers or other equipment directly connected to the water supply. She said they also can’t let employees wash their hands with tap water, even though the water company allows it. She said county inspectors were making rounds Thursday to enforce the order. Mark Onstott, owner of

Tavern on Main at 301 East Main Street, said his restaurant stayed open with fresh ice and bottled water. He said the kitchen staf is using boiled water. “We’ve been through this before and know how to handle it,” Onstott said. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency requires a boil order any time water pressure drops below 20 pounds per square inch in any part of a community’s distribu-

tion system, according to an Illinois American Water statement on its Facebook page. The order will be in effect for 36 to 48 hours after water service is restored, which is standard, according to the statement. Illinois American Water will notify customers when the boil order is lifted via news outlets, customer calls, social media and its website, illinoisamwater. com.

DIGEST TWIN OAKS > Drone regulations to be considered • Twin Oaks is aiming to have its irst ordinance in place regulating drones as the spring and summer approach, oicials said Wednesday night. Oicials are mainly concerned that drones may ly uncontrolled within the village’s 11-acre park, possibly in a spying or competitive mode. “I don’t want them lying around in the open with kids playing in the area,” trustee Lisa Eisenhauer said. In December, the city of Wildwood completed action on an ordinance regulating unmanned aircraft, requiring compliance with federal regulations and adding its own provisions for local enforcement. Wildwood’s ordinance is designed to be complaintdriven for enforcement. A police spokesman said Thursday no complaints have been received so far. St. Louis County police patrol both cities under contract. Some other cities’ oicials are considering similar legislation. Twin Oaks’ new ordinance will have to be carefully crafted to be enforceable, “but you can always ind a way to do everything legally,” Paul Rost, village attorney, said. (Special to the PostDispatch) COLUMBIA, MO. > Enrollment climbs at law enforcement training center • One year ago, University of Missouri Extension’s Law Enforcement Training Institute’s enrollment for its January class was the lowest it has been since it adopted Columbia as its permanent base, about 15 years ago. That class numbered just 13 — 14 fewer than its August 2015 class and about a third of the 36 people who began at the local police academy in May 2014. By August 2016, its enrollment crept back up to 29, and when its most recent class began in early January, it started with 21 police oicer hopefuls. Adam Duncan, assistant director at the institute known colloquially as LETI, said he thinks enrollment has stabilized after

luctuating for a few years. He expects most academy classes to be in the midto-upper 20s range for its 16-week courses, which begin three times a year, in January, May and August. There are many reasons why the numbers have gone up and down the past few years, Duncan said. In the year after the August 2014 fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white Ferguson police oicer, enrollment dropped as police and community relations became national news. In January 2015, 31 people enrolled. That igure dropped to 22 in May 2015. “There’s almost always a pendulum efect” on enrollment over the years, he said. Some people begin the class but then decide it’s not for them, others aren’t attracted to law enforcement because of the hard work and meager pay, and some people want to become oicers but aren’t in the right spot in their lives to dedicate the time and money, Duncan said. (Associated Press) SPRINGFIELD, ILL. > Plan seeks to keep Illinois paychecks lowing • Illinois lawmakers are preparing legislation to ensure that state employees continue receiving paychecks if a judge agrees with the attorney general’s argument that their pay should be halted during the budget impasse. Republican Rep. Avery Bourne and Democratic Rep. Sue Scherer introduced similar measures Wednesday to keep paychecks lowing in response to a motion iled by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan last week. Madigan is asking a judge to reverse a previous ruling that not paying state workers would be unconstitutional, even without a budget. Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan’s spokesman Steve Brown calls Scherer’s bill a “precaution” against the attorney general’s action. Bourne says her measure is necessary to prevent a government shutdown and keep state workers out of the political fray as the budget negotiations grind on. (AP)

Slay endorses Krewson for mayor BY KORAN ADDO St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Mayor Francis Slay has endorsed longtime ally and 28th Ward Alderman Lyda Krewson to be the city’s next mayor. Slay made the announcement in a minute-long YouTube video, calling Krewson a leader who is not afraid to make tough decisions. “All the candidates for mayor are good people who want the best for our city,” Slay said. “But I believe one candidate, Lyda Krewson, has what it takes to do the job.” “I know Lyda will always do what’s in the best interests of our city,” Slay added. He also referenced Krewson’s husband’s murder in a 1995 carjacking in front of the family’s home in the Central West End. “She didn’t pack her bags and run from the city,” Slay said. “She immersed herself in our community to help make St. Louis a better place to raise a family. I’m voting for Lyda because she’s the right person to lead

our city into the future.” Slay’s endorsement comes with a promise that he will raise money for Krewson, who, with $576,000 in her campaign account, has a substantial lead over Lewis Reed, the next biggest fundraiser, who has raised $254,000. The endorsement also ends months of speculation over which candidate he might back. There has been some speculation that he might throw his support behind city Treasurer Tishaura Jones. In speeches delivered last year, Slay spoke about racial disparities and the institutions that perpetuate them, echoing topics Jones has made a central part of her platform. Jones also has longtime Slay loyalist Richard Callow advising her campaign. And although Slay’s endorsement will undoubtedly help Krewson, particularly in south St. Louis and the central corridor, there are some questions as to whether Jones may actually be better off without the mayor’s endorsement.

Many people involved in local politics think Slay’s endorsement could be a hindrance in large swaths of north St. Louis and among the city’s young progressives — two constituencies Jones is hoping to attract. In addition to Slay, Krewson has also picked up endorsements from the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association and Collector of Revenue Gregory F.X. Daly. In June, Krewson became the first candidate to enter a race not many expected to be this lively. Slay’s surprise announcement in April that he would not seek a fifth term kicked of a campaign season featuring 12 candidates and roughly two dozen debates and forums. Krewson has identified her top three priorities as public safety, economic development and modernizing the city’s often bureaucratic layers of government.

Hearing delayed for Labor Dept. pick; group sues here to open divorce iles BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-dispatch

WASHINGTON • The con-

firmation hearing for labor secretary nominee Andy Puzder, a former St. Louis lawyer and fast-food CEO, has been pushed back to an indefinite date because of lagging background paperwork. “The committee will not officially notice a confirmation hearing with Mr. Puzder until the committee has received his paperwork from the Office of Government Ethics,” a spokesman for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee said Thursday. The hearing had been tentatively set for Tuesday. But Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., the HELP Committee chair, after hearing Democrats complain about a lack of access to background checks and other paperwork in the consideration of other Cabinet nominees of President Donald Trump, decided to move it back to an undetermined date. Puzder is the CEO of CKE Restaurants Inc., the

parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants. He is a 1978 graduate of Washington University’s law school and was for years a lawyer in St. Louis. He represented Missouri anti-abortion rights activists and for several years practiced commercial law in the St. Louis law oices of Morris A. Shenker, a lawyer for Teamsters union boss Jimmy Hofa. Puzder’s advocates say he’ll be a job-creating labor secretary whose bluecollar background — he worked his way through law school — makes him uniquely qualified because he has seen the job market from the entry level on up through to CEO of a major corporation. Puzder is also credited with pulling back CKE from bankruptcy. But Puzder has also been the target of attacks from union leaders, who characterize him as hostile to wage earners; from feminist groups ofended by his company’s ads showing scantily clad women eating hamburgers; and from some who have seized on 1989 divorce allegations that Puzder had abused his wife, Lisa. She appeared on

“Oprah” to talk about the allegations, but she has since recanted them, saying in a statement released by the Trump transition team that she had “impulsively” filed for divorce and that she “withdrew those allegations more than 30 years ago.” “You were not abusive,” Puzder’s ex-wife said in the statement, which she sent to Puzder in late November. “I will most definitely confirm to anyone who may ask that in no way was there abuse.” But on Thursday, a Washington-based nonprofit watchdog group said it had filed in St. Louis a lawsuit to open up the Puzders’ divorce records. The nonprofit, the Campaign For Accountability, frequently sues lawmakers or others over ethics issues. It does not disclose its donors. “President Trump has nominated Mr. Puzder to head the Department of Labor, where he would oversee efforts to combat workplace harassment and violence. Before the United States Senate votes on whether Mr. Puzder is qualified to lead an agency charged with protect-

ing the safety of American workers — including millions of women — the public is entitled to full information about Mr. Puzder’s record,” Daniel Stevens, the group’s executive director, said in a statement. Puzder, who before his nomination was very active on social media and on the interview circuit, has been largely quiet in the lead-up for his hearings. Those who have helped him prepare for the nomination say that he is eager to answer his critics but that he is adhering to longstanding tradition in staying out of the public eye as the Senate ponders and debates whether he should be confirmed. But a spokeswoman at Banner Public Affairs, a major Washington public affairs group that is handling queries, issued a statement condemning the lawsuit as “a shameless attempt to smear an individual who has shown nothing but dedication to creating jobs, growing the economy and providing opportunities for workers to achieve the American dream.” Chuck Raasch • 202-298-6880 @craasch on Twitter craasch@post-dispatch.com

LETTER FROM WASHINGTON

As chief, Trump wears a lot of hats CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • The Fixer in Chief has got this. “The world is in trouble, but we’re going to straighten it out. OK?” President Donald Trump said at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast. “That’s what I do. I fix things. We’re going to straighten it out.” The Negotiator in Chief warned Americans to be ready for more tough talk with foreign leaders — even those leading America’s oldest and best friends. Like the one last week with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that, by multiple reports, got testy over an Obama administration promise to accept about 1,250 refugees from Iran, Iraq and other countries stranded on islands of Australia.

The Obama administration had determined conditions were inhumane for the refugees. The call ended with Trump declaring, “That was the worst call by far” of all of his with foreign leaders, according to The Washington Post. But the Reassurer in Chief said Thursday not to worry there, either. To think of his actions as the art of the deal. He said he’s tired of the U.S. getting bad deals, even with friends like Australia, which is one of a handful of countries that share the deepest of state secrets with the U.S. “When you hear about the tough phone calls I’m having, don’t worry about it,” he said, to applause, at the annual prayer service, a tradition started under Dwight Eisenhower. “It’s time we’re going to be a little tough, folks.” Later, the Negotiator in Chief reappeared. “I said (to Turnbull), ‘Why, why are we doing this?’” Trump said. “So we’ll see what hap-

pens.” “We have some wonderful allies and in the end, we are going to keep it that way,” Trump said, segueing to Reassurer in Chief. “But we have to be treated fairly, also.” Hours before, the Tweeter in Chief had appeared at the crack of dawn. “Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a lifeline in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion,” Trump tweeted. He was referring to a deal forged by his predecessor to stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon in exchange for lifting sanctions and thawing frozen financial assets. His administration had announced this week it had put Iran “on notice” for any breaches in previous arms agreements, and the Commander in Chief said Thursday that a military option was not of the table. The Celebrity in Chief was out and about Thursday, too. In his prayer breakfast re-

marks, Trump doubled down on tweets critical of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” the NBC “reality” show he once ran, by joking that he would say a prayer for current host Arnold Schwarzenegger, to boost Arnold’s lagging ratings. Later, in a meeting with Harley-Davidson motorcycle execs, the Commentator in Chief again extolled how he shocked the world and won Rust Belt states on Nov. 8, including Harley’s home of Wisconsin, defying prognosticators. The president does this frequently, often in situations that raise eyebrows, sometimes to the point that his critics say he is distractedly obsessed with it. The Trader in Chief then said he had problems with the North American Free Trade Agreement. The Cleric in Chief surprised the prayer breakfast with a threat to “totally destroy” the Johnson Amendment, another Eisenhower-era legacy designed to prevent religious leaders from endorsing politicians from the pulpit or risk losing their tax-ex-

empt status. It was passed in 1954 by a Republican Congress and signed by a Republican president, and the fact that some Republicans now want it repealed says much about the evolution of the GOP on the constitutional and traditional separation of church and state. This was one day of the Trump era. In his first two weeks on the job, Donald Trump has roiled oicial Washington and the embassies that populate the tree-canopied northwestern quarter of the city — an Officialdom that had become accustomed to “No Drama Obama” and an America that had aspired to lead from behind. All administrations have pace. This one’s, so far, has been frenetic. Through it all, President Trump has been one thing above all else: Disruptor in Chief.

Trump could order IRS not to enforce regulation In a July 30, 1954, photo, then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, D-Texas, holds a news conference in Washington. Moving on a campaign promise, President Donald Trump said Thursday he will work for the repeal of the Johnson Amendment to allow pastors to endorse candidates from the pulpit.

leaders, politicians and dignitaries. In addition, Trump is considering how to allow Americans to opt out of complying with federal policies and regulations on the grounds of religion, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday. Critics say such a move could open the door to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender or gender identity. Trump’s pledge regarding the IRS rules was a nod to his evangelical Christian supporters, who helped power his White House win. So far he has not detailed his plans for doing away with the rule, which he has previously promised to rescind. Named after then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, the regulation has been in place since 1954 for tax-exempt charities, including churches, though it is very rare for a church to actually be penalized. Abolishing the amendment would require action by Congress, though Trump could direct the IRS to disregard the rule. The tax code does allow a wide range of political activity by houses of worship, including speaking out on social issues and organizing congregants to vote. But churches cannot endorse a candidate nor engage in partisan advocacy. Lloyd Mayer, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, said an IRS move could prompt lawsuits, if the rule was repealed for churches but not other charities. Mayer also noted that a full repeal of the rule could open up churches to the

possibility of spending their resources to openly try to influence elections — and for donors to get tax breaks for political contributions. While some conservative Christians would like to see the rule abolished, others, especially the younger generation, support a clear separation of church and political endorsements. Many liberal churches are also active on policy issues and could potentially get more involved in partisan politics. Repeal does not appear to have widespread public support. Eight in 10 Americans said it was inappropriate for pastors to endorse a candidate in church in a poll released last September by Lifeway Research, a religious survey firm based in Nashville, Tenn.

schools and ministries who object to same-sex marriage and abortion. At the daily news briefing, Spicer said that government regulations and policies had “denied people the ability to live according to their faith.” “People should be able to practice their religion,

express their religion, express areas of their faith without reprisal,” he said. “And I think that pendulum sometimes swings the other way in the name of political correctness.” Spicer’s comments, which came on the same day Trump told the audience at the National Prayer

nounce.”

Breakfast that his administration “will do everything possible to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” could signal a sea change in how the federal government balances protections for gay, transgender and reproductive rights against individuals’ religious objections. Administration officials are considering a proposed executive order, a draft of which was obtained by the Washington Post, that would provide individuals and organizations wide latitude in denying services, employment and other benefits on the basis of their religious beliefs, though Spicer emphasized that Trump had no immediate plans to issue a directive on the issue. “There are a lot of ideas that are being floated out,” he said. “But until the president makes up his mind and gives feedback and decides that that’s final, there’s nothing to an-

IMMIGRATION AND FAITH At the prayer breakfast, Trump also defended his recent executive order on immigration, decrying “generous” immigration policies and arguing that there are people who seek to enter the country “for the purpose of spreading violence or oppressing other people based upon their faith.” He also pledged to take more immigration action in the name of religious liberty. “In the coming days we will develop a system to help ensure that those admitted into our country fully embrace our values of religious and personal liberty and that they reject any form of oppression and discrimination,” Trump said. The Washington Post contributed to this report.

profit groups are rejecting federal grant money to combat violent extremism because of President Donald Trump’s actions involving Muslims and Arabs. The administration of President Barack Obama awarded in its final days 31 grants through the Homeland Security Department worth a total of about $10 million. Those agreements haven’t been signed, and no money has been distributed. Two groups said they were rejecting the money they already had been offered, and a third objected to Trump’s plans. Leaders Advancing and Helping Communities in Dearborn, Mich., said it was turning down $500,000 for youth development and public health programs because of the “current political climate.” Ka Joog, a leading Somali nonprofit in Minneapolis, rejected nearly $500,000 for its youth programs. “Our nation’s new administration and their policies ...promote hate, fear, uncertainty and even worse — an unoicial war on Muslim-Americans and immigrants,” the group said in a statement. Trump has endorsed extreme vetting and ordered a temporary ban on refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Charities that already have worked with U.S. government agencies, including the CIA, Justice Department and Homeland Security, said they were reacting to discussions within the Trump administration to exclusively target “radical Islamic terrorists” under a U.S. program to counter violent extremism. A U.S. official with knowledge of the discussions said Trump’s administration had been discussing a change in policy, which would change the Obama administration program’s name, established in 2014, to some iteration of “countering Islamic extremism.” This person spoke on condition of anonymity because the oicial was not authorized to speak publicly. Most of the 31 federal grants were promised to municipalities, but also to nonprofits such as Life After Hate Inc. in Chicago, which received $400,000 for its work with former white supremacists. The U.S. oicial said it was unclear whether such groups would continue to receive funding or be included in any future program. The nonprofit Washington-based Muslim Public Affairs Council has been working on a new intervention program to bring teams providing social services, mental health counseling and religious educators to communities in at least 10 cities, including Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta and Chicago. It had encouraged the Muslim community to give the countering violent extremism program a chance. “If there’s a policy change that basically in effect tells us we have to fight our own religion, then this is a fundamental violation of our constitutional rights and we will consider all possible actions for redress, “ said Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Councils. A “policy change that stigmatizes the Muslim community and treats them as a suspect community [means] we have to rethink everything in terms of our whole approach toward policy engagement toward this administration.” He said there was such disarray throughout federal agencies that “nobody knows where this is going.”

‘Right-to-work’ bill in Greitens’ hands WORK • FROM A1

a thinly disguised efort to weaken union influence. Labor law experts and economists have found flaws with both of those arguments, but the issue has made for a heated debate in state legislatures across the country. Missouri Republicans insist that the laws have proven track records in states such as Indiana and Michigan, and that passing it will keep Missouri competitive. “It’s obviously an issue that stirs some deep passions on both sides, but it’s an issue that we think is critical to the economic future of Missouri,” said House Speaker Todd Richardson, R-Poplar Bluf. As House lawmakers approved a measure sent to them by their colleagues in the Senate, Gov. Eric Greitens was speaking at a special needs school in Nixa, Mo., where he announced his spending plan amid a $456 million budget shortfall. Republicans in the Legislature, ecstatic to have an ally in the governor’s mansion, are hopeful the policy change will boost the state’s economy and send a friendly message to employers looking to set up shop in the Show-Me state.

But for the hundreds of union members flooding the Capitol to protest the bill, it’s familiar action with a new and disappointing final outcome. Both chambers previously have passed right-to-work legislation, but former Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, vetoed those proposals. During final debate on the House floor, Republicans pointed to a grandfather clause protecting existing contracts until they expire as evidence of compromise. But Democrats slammed the urgency to push the bill through, saying they weren’t ever invited to the table to negotiate changes. “Perhaps I was gone that day, because I didn’t get such a phone call,” said House Minority Leader Gail McCann Beatty, DKansas City. Democrats made one final attempt to attach a referendum to the bill, which would send the issue before voters in 2017. But like similar eforts before, it was easily defeated by the GOP supermajority. Republicans have continually argued that voters already weighed in through the 2016 election, in which conservative candidates swept Missouri at every level of government. “The vast majority of us ran on right to

work,” said Rep. Charlie Davis, R-Webb City. Rep. Bob Burns, D-St. Louis County, said those campaigns — and ultimately the bill — were bought and paid for by David Humphreys, a GOP megadonor who has given millions to Republican candidates who support the legislation. “This law is intrusive. It’s being paid for by one billionaire in Joplin,” Burns said. Meanwhile some Democrats, like Rep. Bruce Franks of St. Louis and Rep. Brandon Ellington, a Kansas City Democrat who leads the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus, said they didn’t support the legislation but called on unions to become more inclusive. “We can’t just fight for protections when we’re not fighting for a diversified workforce,” Ellington said. Lawmakers debated for more than two hours, amid cheers and jeers from union members in the gallery, but opponents to the legislation acknowledged a losing battle before the bill passed, 100-59. “It’s a sad day for working people,” said Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, DBellefontaine Neighbors. Union workers also lamented the bill’s passage, fearing it will lead to lower wages

for the middle-class workforce. “With today’s passage of the deceptive right-to-work bill, Missouri is on a path that is dangerous to the well-being of working families and our neighborhoods as a whole, and for what — to fulfill the agenda of out-of-state corporations that are putting unnecessary profits above the human needs of the neighborhoods where they do business,” said AFL-CIO President Mike Louis. But business groups and GOP leaders quickly began to celebrate a long-awaited political victory. “We’re looking forward to the next step in this process, letting the rest of the country and the world know that we are open to worker freedom and we are open for business,” said Missouri Chamber of Commerce President Dan Mehan. Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, said he had been pushing for the change for 16 years. “This may be one of the greatest days in the history of Missouri, as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “If nothing else happens the rest of my life, I am pleased.” Celeste Bott • 573-556-6186 @celestebott on Twitter cbott@post-dispatch.com

Greitens’ budget plan reduces funding for higher education

Increased state costs blamed on spike in coverage for the poor OBAMACARE • FROM A1

SPRINGFIELD NEWS-LEADER VIA AP

Springield resident Lexi Amos asks Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens a question Thursday about Medicaid grants and school vouchers after delivery of an outline of his state budget for the new iscal year at Nixa Early Childhood Center in Nixa, Mo.

BUDGET • FROM A1

GOV. ERIC GREITENS’ BUDGET PROPOSAL BY THE NUMBERS

accept an expansion of Medicaid that would have been largely paid for by the federal government, with some costs to be borne by the state. The reduction for in-home care and nursing home care would save an estimated $52 million. Under the proposal, about a third of the 60,000 people who receive the aid would no longer qualify because of tougher eligibility requirements. The proposed reduction was alarming to Carol Hudspeth, executive director of the Missouri Alliance for Home Care. “We’re deeply concerned about the impact the changes will have on our elderly and disabled,” Hudspeth told the Post-Dispatch on Thursday. Medicaid providers also would see a 3 percent cut in their reimbursements from the state as part of a separate push to save money, said acting budget director Dan Haug. Greitens, elected as an outsider, made no mention of those cuts during his speech. He used the backdrop of a school for his announcement instead of unveiling his budget in a traditional speech to a joint session of the Legislature. He continued an election-time theme of blaming lawmakers in the capital city for many of the state’s ills. “The fact is, Missouri’s budget is broken,” Greitens said. “For decades, insiders, special interests, lobbyists and prior politicians have made a mess of our budget.” Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, shrugged off the attacks. “We’ll let rhetoric go where it goes. I’m pretty thick-skinned,” Richard said. Greitens said the location of his speech, south of Springfield, was chosen because of his belief that schools must not lose money despite a tight budget. The proposal slightly increases funding for K-12 education, but it cuts programs afecting the St. Louis area, including a $2.9 million urban teaching initiative. State aid for school busing programs also is being slashed by $31 million, drawing the ire of local school boards. “The continued cuts to school transportation funding often have to be made up at the local level, and that can have an impact on money available for the classroom,” said Melissa Randol, executive director of the

$27.6 billion: Total budget for the iscal year beginning July 1 $5.95 billion: Aid for schools, up 4.1 percent 188: Number of employees to be cut $31 million: Amount of money cut from school transportation aid $159 million: Amount cut from all forms of higher education spending $12 million: Amount going to pay debt on Dome at America’s Center

Missouri School Boards’ Association. “State revenue continues to fall short of the level needed to fully fund our public schools.” The budget proposal also reduces core funding going to the state’s twoand four-year colleges and universities by $90 million. “That wasn’t an easy decision,” Greitens said of higher education reductions. “I’m confident this year they can tighten their belts just like the rest of us.” Paul Wagner, executive director of the Council on Public Higher Education, warned that the governor’s budget could result in college tuition hikes. “The cuts will slow our progress on keeping higher education as affordable as possible and as accessible to as many Missourians as possible. We look forward to working with the Governor and General Assembly to lessen or eliminate this cut so as to keep tuition increases and service reductions as low as possible,” Wagner said in a statement. Said Greitens: “I don’t think that we need to raise tuition on our students. I don’t think that our students should be made to pay for the mistakes of our past politicians and the promises they made.” Although the governor’s speech was warmly received at the school, not everyone attending the event was supportive. “I’m worried about comments the governor has made that sound like he wants Missourians to choose between providing our kids with adequate health care or education,” said Lexi Amos, 34, whose 13-yearold son with a disability attended the Nixa school. “That’s not a choice we should have to make.” State revenues this year have

lagged behind estimates, primarily because of a slowdown in corporate income tax collections brought on by a change in law that altered how companies can pay their taxes. Already, Greitens has reduced spending in the current fiscal year by $146 million to keep the budget in balance. Greitens is backing a series of legislative initiatives that he believes will create more jobs in Missouri. They include a “right-to-work” law that critics say will weaken unions, as well as changes to the state’s legal system that he hopes will ease litigation costs for businesses. His proposal also would restore $2.5 million that was cut by Nixon last year from the state’s public defender system. And it would pay the $12 million yearly debt payment for the Dome at America’s Center, formerly the Edward Jones Dome. Although the Department of Public Safety will see a $5.2 million decrease, Greitens did earmark funding for bullet-proof vests and nonlethal weapons such as Tasers. The lion’s share of cuts in the department are coming from the director’s oice. The governor also allocated $250,000 to create a Blue Alert system that would establish a statewide notification system if an oicer is attacked. He also wants to spend $11 million to fight opioid addiction. Greitens, who has been to Washington twice since being sworn in less than a month ago, is banking on help from President Donald Trump’s administration for roads and other spending. He’s also hoping to reap some savings by investigating the state’s tax credit programs. “We are doing a complete and total review of every state tax credit program to see where that money is going,” Greitens said. The budget process now moves to the House and Senate for further debate. The Legislature must approve the budget by May 5. “We have known for months now that this budget was going to be tight. But we are ready for the challenge and ready to get to work,” said Sen. Dan Brown, R-Rolla, who chairs the Senate budget committee. Kurt Erickson reported from Jeferson City.

Obamacare” to spend an additional $350 million on health care. After the governor’s address, in an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and other media outlets, Dan Haug, Missouri’s acting budget director, attributed the higher costs to pharmaceutical spending within the Medicaid program. An increase in “caseloads” also was blamed by a Greitens spokesman for driving health care spending higher. In an email to the Post-Dispatch on Jan. 18, spokesman Parker Briden wrote: “Obamacare has caused the cost of health care to go up in every state, across the entire country. This year, health care expenditures and caseloads were higher than expected and continue to rise, contributing to our budget problems.” “Caseloads” is typically a term used for those with Medicaid coverage, the state-run health insurance for the poor and disabled. Even though its Republican-led Legislature refused to expand Medicaid, Missouri did see enrollment in the program for mostly low-income Missourians and children increase by almost 103,000 from 2010 to 2016, said Tim McBride, a health economist at Washington University and member of the committee that oversees the state’s Medicaid program. Almost all those new enrollees were children who were eligible to enroll in the state’s coverage — even prior to the Afordable Care Act — because of the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program, referred to as CHIP. As a result of publicity for the Afordable Care Act and the push to enroll individuals in health insurance plans, more Missourians likely found out their children were eligible for the CHIP program, which grants coverage to children with a family income of up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level, McBride and other policy experts have said. That’s $48,720 for a family of two and $73,800 for a family of four. A majority — 63 percent — of those enrolled in the state’s Medicaid program are children, according to 2016 figures with the Missouri Department of Social Services. But disabled individuals drive 47 percent of the spending. “Kids are cheap but nonetheless when you add up that many extra people coming in, it adds something to the state budget,” said Abigail Barker, data analyst at the Center for Health Economics and Policy at Washington University. With the increased scrutiny on Medicaid spending, and calls to repeal the Afordable Care Act among Republicans, policy experts and providers are concerned about potential funding changes to Medicaid, which insures nearly 17 percent of Missouri’s 6 million residents. Currently, Medicaid is funded by both the state and federal government. The federal government matches a percentage of what the state spends on enrollees. Typically, the federal government provides a larger portion of funding due to the percentage match. For example, for each $1 Missouri spends on Medicaid costs, the federal government matches it with $1.72, according to the Missouri Budget Project, a nonprofit think tank that advocates for policies that benefit the poor and analyzes budget and tax policy. Overall, the federal government provides 51 percent of the funding for Missouri’s Medicaid program, 31 percent comes from a tax on health care providers, leaving the state with 17 percent, according to data with the Missouri Budget Project. But all that would change if there was a switch to a block-grant system, a proposal by Republicans. Block grants would cap federal spending given to states, giving them a lump sum instead of a percentage match. That switch could put pressure on state budgets, their credit ratings and lead to “weaker financial profiles for health care institutions,” according to a Standard and Poor’s report from 2016. On one hand, a block grant would give states more control over their Medicaid programs instead of having to agree to certain terms as a condition of receiving the federal match. But receiving just a lump sum, likely based on what the state currently receives, might pressure states to reduce expenditures by reducing coverage for some, according to Standard and Poor’s. “For states, this could lead to more acute fiscal strain during recessions when falling incomes correspond to increased enrollments,” according to the Standard and Poor’s report. The report says a block grant arrangement could expose states to the “full brunt of economic recessions.” Samantha Liss • 314-340-8017 @samanthann on Twitter sliss@post-dispatch.com

Trump stuck to high court list He went with his head, not gut, to pick Supreme Court nominee BY JONATHAN LEMIRE AND JILL COLVIN associated Press

WASHINGTON • President Donald Trump likes to go with his gut. But when it came to picking a Supreme Court nominee, he forced himself to go by the list. Trump’s campaign promise to pick from a list of 21 prominent conservative judges became the driving force behind the selection process that culminated Tuesday in the nomination of Neil Gorsuch, a federal appeals court judge. The list was crucial in solidifying support from evangelicals and calming broader worries that the unorthodox politician might go rogue on a lifetime appointment. As a result, the decisionmaking was perhaps more orderly and ordinary than typical for the improvisational businessman and ex-reality TV star, according to a half-dozen White House aides and associates who spoke on condition of anonymity. Trump, at times, chafed under the restraints; at one point he flirted with searching for other options. He decided against his vice president’s initial choice. And, along with jurisprudence and intellect, Trump factored in a qualification he applies to many of his personnel decisions. The young, clean-cut Gorsuch just looked the part, Trump told an associate. He’s “perfect in just about every way,” Trump said Tuesday night, during the primetime introduction of Gorsuch at the White House. The moment was a year in the making. Justice Antonin Scalia died last February, creating an unexpected opening on the ninemember court. Weeks later, Trump met with several prom-

inent conservatives, including Heritage Foundation head Jim DeMint, at the offices of the Jones Day law firm in Washington. The group decided the conservative think tank would suggest a list of potential judges to the campaign staff, said John Malcolm, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. Malcolm published the suggested list shortly afterward. Trump, in an unprecedented move for a presumptive nominee, culled his own list from those names, made it public and pledged to choose one of them. Scalia’s seat was being held open by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who refused to hold a hearing on President Barack Obama’s nominee, federal appeals court Judge Merrick Garland. Eleven more names, including Gorsuch’s, were added weeks later. Trump said he would keep his promise and even urged Republicans “who don’t like me” in the race against Democrat

Hillary Clinton to come home if for no other reason than to put a conservative on the court. “I believe that was a turning point on the campaign,” said Ralph Reed, the founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “I believe it solidified his standing among evangelicals and other social conservatives. I think it was essential to him strengthening his position among Republican voters, which was weaker at that point than for a traditional, more conventional nominee.”

IN SCALIA’S MOLD Along the way, Trump told those close to him he understood the importance of a decision that could reshape the nation’s highest court for decades, as well as his own legacy. Trump, who spent little time considering the Supreme Court before the campaign beyond criticizing decisions he did not like, became interested in the late Scalia and his career, aides said. He repeatedly told audiences he would find a justice in “the mold of Scalia.”

Trump began discussing his decision with close associates and family members over the winter holidays at his Florida resort and began again in earnest after the first of the year. While he was satisfied with the names he’d put out there, he at times suggested he was willing to veer of the list, and met with Andrew Napolitano, a former judge turned Fox News legal analyst, to discuss the decision. Trump ultimately returned to a narrower focus, mindful that breaking the promise would make him appear to be just another Washington politician going back on his word. Trump interviewed four finalists: Gorsuch; Thomas Hardiman, who sits on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals; 11th Circuit Court Judge Bill Pryor; and Amul Thapar, a federal district judge in Kentucky. The candidates also interviewed with White House counsel Don McGahn, Vice President Mike Pence, chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon. Pence had initially favored Pryor, while Bannon pushed for Gorsuch, according to two people familiar with the process. A spokesman for Pence did not respond to a request for comment Thursday. Associates close to Trump say the president took the interview process seriously, discussing the finalists’ judicial philosophies. “He was engaged and very mindful of the awesome responsibility the president has in making these decisions,” said Leonard Leo, the Federalist Society’s executive vice president, who advised Trump on his pick, reprising a role he played for President George W. Bush. “At one point he said he wants to ‘get this right.’ He took this very, very seriously and he wanted a process.”

Court pick is champion of states’ authority Gorsuch’s decade as appeals court judge shows he favors less use of federal power BY JEFF DONN AND GEOFF MULVIHILL associated Press

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch has repeatedly favored extending greater power to states, counties, towns and American Indian tribes, according to an Associated Press review of his appeals court opinions and other writings and speeches. The judge on the Denverbased 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has railed, often eloquently, about what he views as government overreach, sometimes by the courts themselves. He has promoted instead the concept of federalism, which favors states’ powers to run their own affairs. He has frequently dissented from his court’s majority when it sought to impose federal authority over other governing bodies. President Donald Trump’s nomination of Gorsuch, 49, has drawn cheers from conservative groups that view his nomination as fulfillment of Trump’s campaign promise to appoint a conservative to the high court. If confirmed by the Senate, Gorsuch would take the seat occupied by Justice Antonin Scalia until his death a year ago. Democrats, civil rights groups, and advocates of gay rights and abortion rights have widely panned the selection.

HANDS-OFF APPROACH Over the years, Gorsuch has argued for a federal hands-of approach toward an e-commerce tax in Colorado, for letting Oklahoma use state law to bar convicts from arguing that their lawyer was ineffective, and for tribal jurisdiction over crimes on Indian lands in Utah. “Federal courts aren’t free to intervene in any old dispute and rule any way they wish,” he wrote in 2014. He was dissenting from the appeals court majority when it allowed a federal challenge to the Colorado voterapproved law requiring public approval of new taxes. The court majority based its objections to the tax on the Guarantee Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which says that the federal government must guarantee “a republican form of government” in the states. In a 2015 case, he added that the federal government should exercise “diffused and divided power, the better to prevent its

abuse.” Gorsuch has also bemoaned what he sees as overuse of the court system itself. He has voiced frustration that it too often operates at a snail’s pace and at unjustifiable costs. “No doubt our complex and consuming litigation wringer has assumed the shape it has so courts might squeeze as much truth as possible out of the parties’ competing narratives,” he wrote in a 2015 decision upholding the right of the Ute Indian people to prosecute tribal members accused of crimes on Ute territory. “But sooner or later every case must come to an end.” The argument hasn’t ended: the Utah city of Myton asked last month for a review by the U.S. Supreme Court. In a 2013 speech, Gorsuch described the law itself as confusing and bloated: “And what happens to individual freedom and equality — and to our very conception of law itself — when the criminal code comes to cover so many facets of daily life that prosecutors can almost choose their targets with impunity?”

STATES’ POWER His writings have long reflected a deep respect for powers of the states. As an undergraduate at Co-

lumbia University, he founded a newspaper called The Federalist Paper. And in 1991, long before he became a judge, he co-wrote a law review article defending state-imposed term limits on elected oicials. Many of his court rulings have also lifted up state over federal law. In a 2015 majority opinion, Gorsuch opened the door to restoring a jury verdict reached under state law giving landowners hundreds of millions of dollars for improper handling of nuclear weapons waste at the Rocky Flats site in Colorado. In this case lasting a generation, he also lamented “staggering delay and (no doubt) equally staggering expense the parties endured here.” The settlement with landowners finally gained preliminary approval last year. Gorsuch wrote the majority opinion in 2007 that denied motorists’ claims over Oklahoma’s rules for specialty license plates. The motorists claimed the rules made it harder for them to display messages for abortion rights than for pro-life slogans. In the same case, though, the ruling did let a reproductive rights group advance its claim of unfair funding by the state. In yet another dissent in 2009, Gorsuch argued against interfering with an Oklahoma court ruling against two prisoners convicted of murder. He said

the majority’s ruling “winds up treating state courts less like instruments of sovereign governments and more like federal agencies.” Gorsuch’s work displays a belief that federal agencies too often overstep their authority. In an immigration case last year, he questioned the decades-old doctrine giving judicial deference to the way federal agencies interpret laws. He wrote that these principles “permit executive bureaucracies to swallow huge amounts of core judicial and legislative power and concentrate federal power in a way that seems more than a little difficult to square with the Constitution of the framers’ design.” Then he added: “Maybe the time has come to face the behemoth.” Alexander “Sasha” Volokh, a professor at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, said Gorsuch’s views on the power of federal agencies could be particularly important with Trump in the White House. “For anyone who is concerned about abuses of power under Trump,” he said, “that sort of person would really welcome a theory that would limit how much authority the agencies would have to say what the statutes mean.”

Repeal of ACA may cost women Higher premiums, less coverage likely BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR AND KELLI KENNEDY associated Press

WASHINGTON • From a return to higher premiums based on gender, to gaps in coverage for birth control and breast pumps, experts say women could end up paying more for less if the Affordable Care Act is repealed. The 2010 law ended a common industry practice of charging women more than men for policies purchased directly from an insurer. It made maternity and newborn care a required benefit for individual health plans. And it set a list of preventive services to be provided at no extra cost to women, including birth control and breast pumps used by nursing mothers. That preventive care requirement also applies to most employer plans. Nearly half of pregnancies are unplanned, and prior to the law, sometimes called Obamacare, some women would get pregnant only to learn that their insurance did not cover maternity and delivery, said Dr. John Meigs, a longtime family practitioner in the small town of Centerville, Ala. “A lot of women were delaying their prenatal care until they could figure out what to do,” said Meigs, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. Pregnancy “is one of those things that ought to be covered, because it happens.” Democrats are keying in on the issue as they try to block or blunt the GOP drive to repeal the law. “We don’t want our country going backward when it comes to women’s health,” said Sen. Patty Murray, ranking Democrat on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Women are widely seen as having benefited from the health law. In a recent AP-NORC poll, 44 percent said they thought women were better of as a result of the law, while only 24 percent said women were worse of. “The ACA set minimum levels of benefits that health plans have to cover, and many are highly used or exclusively used by women,” said Usha Ranji, a health policy expert with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “Repeal and replace could take away that minimum level of benefits, which includes really commonly used services like contraception and maternity care.” Rachel Potter, a singer based in Nashville, Tenn., worries about what it could mean for her. She said she was lucky to be covered under the ACA when she unexpectedly became pregnant last year. Bleeding early on and other complications sent her to the doctor’s oice frequently. “We were able to monitor the pregnancy really closely,” Potter said. “I was able to go to an amazing OB-GYN, and I wouldn’t have had access to that care if I had not been on this insurance.” Her son Jude was born in December and is already on the road with her. Potter’s medical bill came to more than $40,000, but she paid only about $2,000 of that. She’s now thinking about getting a long-lasting form of birth control while her insurer is still required to cover it at no charge to her. “I don’t know the future of the health insurance situation,” Potter said. Five doctor groups representing about 500,000 clinicians called Thursday for maintaining the ACA’s women’s benefits, along with other protections. The groups include family physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Physicians and the American Osteopathic Association. A Trump administration spokesman said speculation about components of a replacement for the law was premature. Some Obamacare critics argue that required benefits for women have driven up costs for others, for example young men who don’t need maternity care. Other experts say the impact on premiums is modest compared with the cost of provisions of the law such as guaranteed coverage for people with medical problems and tighter limits on how much older adults can be charged.

dent Donald Trump’s promised crackdown on “sanctuary cities” has revealed the deep divide on immigration in liberal and conservative states, with some moving to follow his order and others breaking with the U.S. government to protect immigrants in the country illegally. In Texas, Republican lawmakers pushed to deny money to cities with the policies on Thursday as demonstrators disrupted a hearing several times. Another U.S.Mexico border state, California, is moving in the opposite direction by advancing a statewide sanctuary that would prohibit law enforcement in the nation’s most populated state from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. Trump’s recent executive orders threatening to withhold federal funding from communities with sanctuary policies and calling for a border wall have produced widespread protests and fears that more immigration restrictions are in the future. The president’s supporters have hailed the eforts.

CITIES ACT Cities have mostly taken up sanctuary laws. There’s no official definition, but often they tell police not to inquire about the immigration status of those they arrest or they decline requests from immigration officials to keep defendants in custody while they await deportation. Phoenix leaders will consider a petition next month to adopt the policies. On the state level, California would not be the first to block police from enforcing federal immigration law. Oregon pioneered statewide sanctuary in 1987, when immigrant workers and their families were sometimes housed in appalling conditions despite their importance to agricultural profits. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said she will enforce the law that prohibits police from detaining people who are in the U.S. illegally but have not broken other laws. She ordered all state agencies on Thursday to follow the policy. “They mow our lawns. They pick our grapes,” Brown said last week. “They take care of our children and they take care of our seniors, and I want to make sure they feel welcome in Oregon.” Advocates say the laws ensure people in the country illegally will come forward to report crimes without fear of deportation. Opponents

cite concerns about crime, including the shooting death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. Charged was a man in the country illegally after multiple deportations to his native Mexico.

FUNDING LAWYERS California senators advanced legislation Tuesday that would provide money for lawyers for immigrants facing deportation and hamper any attempt to create a Muslim registry. The state is home to an estimated 2.3 million immigrants in the country illegally. “We want to make sure that police oicers don’t abandon their beat and go enforce immigration laws,” said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles. Some California Republicans fought back. State Sen. Jeff Stone voted against the measure, saying, “I think this bill is making it that much more difficult for the federal authorities to get the most dangerous criminals that we want to deport to keep our communities safe.” Three states away, Texas’ Republican governor, Greg Abbott, said the Trump administration is showing the potential to secure the border. Besides denying taxpayer money to cities that don’t detain immigrants, he wants to remove locally elected officials if they don’t comply. Individual sherifs and police chiefs have long opposed enforcing federal immigration law. “You don’t get to decide which laws you like, which laws you will honor,” A.J. Louderback, president of the Sherif’s Association of Texas, told state senators Thursday. Sheriff Sally Hernandez, who runs the jails in the liberal enclave of Austin, says she will only comply with federal immigration requests to detain suspects accused of murder, aggravated sexual assault and human trafficking. Abbott then blocked $1.5 million in criminal justice grants.

BAN INVESTIGATED Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog has begun investigating last week’s controversial rollout of Trump’s refugee and immigration restrictions targeting predominantly Muslim countries. The investigation was initiated in response to letters from Democratic lawmakers and hotline complaints, according to the inspector general’s oice. In a news release late Wednesday, the office said it will look into the order and how the department adhered to court orders as well as allegations of misconduct.

Congress targets Obama edicts GOP lawmakers kill rules on coal waste dumping, gun background checks COAL MINING RULE

BY KEVIN FREKING AND MATTHEW DALY Associated Press

WA S H I N G T O N • The Republican-controlled Congress on Thursday scrapped rules on the environment and guns — holdovers from President Barack Obama’s era — counting on a new ally in the White House to help reverse years of what the GOP calls excessive regulation. The House backed a resolution doing away with extended background checks for gun purchases by some Social Security recipients with mental disabilities. The Senate, meanwhile, gave final approval to a measure eliminating a rule to prevent coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby streams. The Senate’s 54-45 vote sends the repeal of the stream protection rule to President Donald Trump, who is expected to sign it. The gun measure awaits Senate action. In the House, the issue was an Obama rule extending background checks for disabled Social Security recipients mentally incapable of managing their own afairs. The House voted 235-180 to scuttle it. Under the rule, the Social Security Administration had to provide information to the gun-buying background check system on recipients with a mental disorder so severe they cannot work and need someone to handle their benefits. The rule, also finalized in December, would have affected an estimated 75,000 beneficiaries. “There is no evidence suggesting that those receiving disability benefits from the Social Security Administration are a threat to public safety,” said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. “Once an unelected bureaucrat unfairly adds these folks to the federal background check system, they are no longer able to exercise their Second Amendment right,” he said. After the 2012 school massacre in Newtown, Conn., President Barack Obama directed the Justice Department to provide guidance to agencies regarding information they are obligated to report to the background check system. In Newtown, 20 children and six educators were shot to death when a gunman entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. The gunman had earlier killed his mother inside their home, and he used a gun and ammunition that she had purchased. His mental health problems have been extensively reported since the shooting. Democrats said Republicans were doing the bid-

ding of the National Rifle Association, which opposed the Social Security Administration’s rule. “These are not people just having a bad day,” Rep. Mike Thompson, DCalif., said. “These are not people simply suf-

fering from depression or anxiety or agoraphobia. These are people with a severe mental illness who can’t hold any kind of job or make any decisions about their afairs, so the law says very clearly they shouldn’t have a firearm.”

Republicans and some Democrats say the coal mining rule could eliminate thousands of coal-related jobs and ignores dozens of federal, state and local regulations already in place. The Interior Department, which announced the rule in December, said that it would protect 6,000 miles of streams and 52,000 acres of forests, preventing coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby waters. The vote was the first in a series of actions Republicans are expected to take in coming weeks to reverse years of what they call excessive regulation during Obama’s tenure. Rules on fracking, federal contracting and other issues also are in the GOP’s cross hairs.

Billy Joel is coming to Busch Stadium Piano Man will perform here Sept. 21 for his only show in Missouri this year BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON St. Louis Post-dispatch

Billy Joel makes a grand return to St. Louis with a concert at 8 p.m. Sept. 21 at Busch Stadium. The show will be the Piano Man’s first solo stadium appearance in St. Louis and his only Missouri show this year. Joel and Elton John played the old Busch Stadium together in 1994. Tickets are $49.50-$139.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 10 at cardinals.com/billyjoel. A presale for Cardinals season ticket holders begins at noon Feb. 8. “We are thrilled to welcome the Piano Man to Busch Stadium,” said Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals, in a statement. “As one of most revered musicians in the entertainment industry, this promises to be an extraordinary, once-ina-lifetime concert that music lovers won’t want to miss.” In a news conference Thursday afternoon, Bryant said Joel was her all-time favorite performer. The Cardinals and Live Nation announced the concert at Ballpark Village at an event at-

president Dave Gerardi and others. “Make plans to see the one and only Piano Man come sing us a song,” Slay said. His remarks

were littered with more than 20 of Joel’s song titles. He also said the concert would be an economic boon for St. Louis businesses.

Joel’s last St. Louis show was in 2014 at Scottrade Center. The last concert at the new Busch Stadium was Paul McCartney’s sold-out show in 2016. Other concerts there were by the Dave Matthews Band in 2008, the Eagles in 2010 and U2 in 2011. In December 2013, Joel became Madison Square Garden’s first music franchise, joining the ranks of the venue’s other original franchises, the New York Knicks, Rangers and Liberty. Since January 2014, Joel has played one show per month at MSG as part of the Time Warner Cable Concert Series. This unprecedented residency led to 36 sold-out shows through December 2016. Joel has received six Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He won a Tony for best orchestrations for “Movin’ Out,” a Broadway musical based on his music. He received the Kennedy Center Honors in 2013. Kevin C.

Iran dismisses threats by Senators rush to repair ‘inexperienced’ U.S. leader relations with Australia Trump says ‘nothing’s of the table’ in missile test dispute

‘Don’t worry’ about his tough talk, president counters

President Donald Trump and Iran traded sharp statements Thursday, with Trump amplifying warnings over Tehran’s missile tests and a top adviser to Iran’s leader saying it was not the first time an “inexperienced person has threatened” his country. The exchanges reflect the Trump administration’s toughening stance on Iran but also point to wider changes in the White House as it advances a combative and iconoclastic foreign policy. The shifts appear to sideline traditional diplomacy and concentrate decision-making among a small group of aides who are quickly projecting their new “America first” approach to the world. CNN reported that in response to the missile test, the White House is expected to impose additional sanctions on Iranian entities under existing executive orders that predate the Trump administration, according to sources familiar with the move. The sanctions — first reported by Reuters — are similar to actions taken by former President Barack Obama after Iran’s previous ballistic missile tests. On Wednesday, just before the Senate confirmed Trump’s new secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, national security adviser Michael Flynn made a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room

to deliver a stern warning to Iran over its most recent ballistic missile test. “As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice,” Flynn said. He accused the Obama administration of failing to confront Iran forcefully enough over its “malign actions” and said Trump was changing course. On Thursday, Trump reiterated his administration’s warning to Iran, writing in a tweet that Tehran was “formally PUT ON NOTICE for firing a ballistic missile.” Then, after a meeting with HarleyDavidson executives in the White House, Trump declined to rule out military action against the Islamic Republic. “Nothing’s of the table,” he said. A top adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, fired back at Trump, saying that “the American government will understand that threatening Iran is useless,” according to Reuters news agency, citing local media. “This is not the first time that an inexperienced person has threatened Iran,” the adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati, said. “Iran does not need permission from any country to defend itself.” The missile tests that took place Sunday are not covered by the nuclear pact, and Iran claims that the launches do not violate other U.N. resolutions because the missiles are not designed to carry nuclear warheads.

Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull butted heads with U.S. President Donald Trump over refugees such as these being held on the Paciic island Nauru. BY RICHARD LARDNER associated Press

WASHINGTON • Republicans and Democrats rushed Thursday to assure Australia that the United States remains a staunch ally after a tense discussion between President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee — both Republicans — and Jack Reed of Rhode Island, a Democrat, all spoke with Joe Hockey, Australia’s ambassador to the United States, and expressed their staunch support for the U.S.-Australia alliance. Their calls came after Trump stressed the need for “tough” talk to make sure other nations don’t take advantage of the United States. Later Thursday, the White House tried to clean up after Trump’s contentious phone call with Turnbull. Chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon met with Hockey at the White House, and they conveyed to the ambassador Trump’s “deep admiration” for the Australian people, the White House said. Trump and Turnbull spoke by phone over the weekend, but the call ended earlier than scheduled. The president expressed frustration during the call over an Obama administration refugee deal with Australia. The White House deepened its condemnation of the deal Thursday, saying Trump was “unbelievably disappointed” in the agreement.

McCain, now in his sixth term in the Senate, has emerged as Trump’s top Republican nemesis in Congress. While GOP leaders on Capitol Hill have largely refrained from scolding the new president, McCain hasn’t been shy about calling Trump out. In the two weeks since Trump’s inauguration, McCain has broken with Trump on his immigration order, warned him against rapprochement with Moscow, lectured him on the illegality of torture and hammered the president for backing away from international free trade agreements.

PACT IS ‘DUMB’ Turnbull said after the phone call that an arrangement negotiated with President Barack Obama’s administration was still on to allow refugees, most of them Muslims, rejected by Australia to be resettled in the United States. But Trump declared the pact “dumb” and pledged a review. In a speech Thursday, Trump appeared to acknowledge the tense Saturday phone call with Turnbull, as well as blunt conversation in an earlier call with the Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. “Believe me. When you hear about the tough phone calls I’m having, don’t worry about it. Just don’t worry about it,” he said at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. “They’re tough. We have to be tough. It’s time we’re going to be a little tough, folks. We’re being taken advantage of by every nation in the world, virtually.”

11th-hour activism Clayton residents had ample opportunity for input on Centene expansion.

C

layton residents sufering from a case of NIMBY have had about eight months and 21 hours of public hearings — with more upcoming — to air their displeasure over Centene Corp.’s $772 million expansion. The 400 residents who signed a petition on behalf of a political action committee, formed to challenge the publicly subsidized Centene project, are looking for an 11th-hour reprieve that they should have sought earlier. Developments with big footprints can certainly affect a community’s quality of life, and conscientious leaders provide residents with ample opportunity for input. In fact, the law requires it. Very often, their concerns must be balanced against developers’ promises to bring money and jobs to the community, which is why such debates can be heated and divisive. But that is exactly the time for citizens to engage, not after the bulldozers have moved in. Stacey Smith, an organizer of the “We Want A Vote” PAC, told Post-Dispatch reporters on Tuesday that she “started paying attention” after receiving mailings and artistic renditions of the Centene project “as if it was a done deal.” Smith said that’s when she realized the project included three 30-story towers, 6,000 garage spaces and “inevitable traffic problems I thought were being swept under the rug.” Smith, her brother Scott Smith, and attorney Frederick Berger were working together in November to create the PAC and said then that they were

collecting signatures to get the issue on the ballot. Their petition, filed Tuesday with the city clerk, seeks a special election so Clayton voters can weigh in on the future of Centene’s expansion plan and other developments the city may consider. June Frazier, Clayton city clerk, said the question could have been on the April election ballot if the petition had been submitted and signatures certified by the St. Louis County elections board by Jan. 24. Centene submitted its plan in June, and multiple city hearings have resulted in a lower tax incentive package than the Medicaid managed-care company originally sought. Clayton City Manager Craig Owens says the city, Centene and project developer Clayco plan more public hearings on specific parts of the development. Clayton adopted a master plan for development in 2010 that was crafted with significant input from city residents. Part of the plan recommended a retail and restaurant promenade and green space along the stretch of Forsyth Boulevard where Centene is planning to expand. Opponents say the city is ignoring the plan, but Owens says a master plan offers a long-range development perspective and is not a blueprint for land use. While some Clayton residents don’t want Centene’s massive building looming over their backyard, other area communities wish they had such problems. Either way, democracy works best when citizens engage from the start, not the end of the process.

Chilling science An embarrassing assault on knowledge that’s doomed to fail.

W

hen the conservative government took power, one of its first steps was muzzling the nation’s scientists. Overnight, they had to get permission from political appointees to do media interviews. Government data archives began to disappear. Climate scientists were regarded as particularly suspect; one government expert on the fate of polar bears was trailed around a convention floor by handlers who interrupted reporters’ questions. This was Canada under Tory Prime Minister Stephen Harper between 2006 and 2015. In its first days, the administration of President Donald Trump is moving to replicate Harper’s embarrassing, and ultimately unsuccessful, experiment. In Harper’s defense, he learned the trick from President George W. Bush. Muzzling scientists does not work. They are too smart, and they find alternate paths to publish and archive their research. As Shakespeare said, truth will out. Besides, bad news doesn’t stop being bad news just because the leadership puts a gag on it. Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide stood at 382 parts per million when Harper became prime minister in 2006. It’s 406 parts per million today. At 450 ppm, permanent and irreversible changes occur. Some scientists say it’s already happening. But the Trump administration, with allies in Congress, seems to think if it can just keep government scientists from speaking out, all will be well. At the very least, the government will no longer be siding with those who tell inconvenient

truths that don’t conform with the Trump agenda. Jobs and profits are at stake. In his first days in office, Trump issued what were in effect gag orders to scientists within the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture. Official social media accounts were suspended. Scientists were ordered to submit their data for political review before publishing it. Trump appointed anti-science activists to run the EPA and to handle the transition at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. The EPA transition team argued the agency “does not use science to guide regulatory policy as much as it uses regulatory policy to steer the science.” And then there’s the redoubtable Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee. To say he’s a Trump fan is an understatement.“Better to get your news directly from the president,” Smith said in a floor speech Jan. 24.“In fact, it might be the only way to get the unvarnished truth.” Smith’s past targets have included the National Science Foundation, NOAA’s climate research, the EPA’s Science Advisory Board and anyone who cast doubt on ExxonMobil’s version of climate change. This year, Smith has broader subpoena powers and a new weapon, the so-called Holman Rule. It allows Congress to single out individual government employees in appropriations bills and cut their salaries to $1. The planet may be heating up, but those powers are chilling.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Might do better to watch out for terrorists from within An ultraright white nationalist in Canada opens fire on Muslim worshippers in a Quebec mosque and kills six people, wounding 19. In response, White House spokesman Sean Spicer condemns the attacks and says this is why “the president is taking steps to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to our nation’s safety and security.” Perhaps Spicer and President Donald Trump are confused about who were the victims and who were the perpetrators of this terrorist act. Unless Spicer and the president think that their recent restrictions on entry to the U.S. by people traveling from certain Muslim majority countries is directed against ultraright white nationalists in this country, it is hard to know why they think anything they are doing is proactive against the type of attack that occurred in Quebec. Perhaps they need to consider “extreme vetting” of ultraright white nationalists in the United States. But that might necessitate looking at people now at the top levels of access in the White House and who now will attend meetings of the National Security Council. That might necessitate looking in the mirror. That might necessitate thinking before they speak, or before issuing executive orders that are contrary to their professed goals. Unless of course their professed goals are not their real goals. Joy Martin • St. Louis

Corrections chief was experienced, professional I appreciated Bill McClellan’s column (“Abrupt end to career behind bars,” Jan. 29) on George Lombardi, recent director of Missouri Department of Corrections. As a long-term leader among nonprofit agencies that work closely with corrections and provide services to re-entering prisoners, I can attest to Lombardi’s extensive knowledge, experience and professionalism as well as his obvious respect for staff and prisoners as well as volunteers. I appreciate the fact that Gov. Eric Greitens recognizes the needs of prisoners when they re-enter the community. I cannot understand, however, how that will be achieved by cutting funds for re-entry and by dropping experienced, proven leadership in corrections. Sister Carleen Reck • St. Louis County

Mayoral candidate says he was excluded from debate Regarding the article (“Mayoral candidates debate role of police, stadium funding”) and Tony Messenger’s column (“Mayoral debate highlights division across St. Louis”) about the mayoral debate Sunday, Post-Dispatch readers should know I wasn’t there because I wasn’t invited, and anyone who says differently is lying. Here are the facts: It’s tough to fill out a survey if they don’t send it to you. The handwriting was on the wall then. When I heard about the debate, I emailed them to request a survey. Without apology or explanation for my not being invited, they sent me one, which I returned in time. They told me I didn’t qualify, among other reasons because I didn’t give them the last name of my social media person. That’s the best they got? I protested vigorously to them and other agencies involved, the Deaconess Foundation and Metropolitan Congregations United, to no avail. In my opinion, they had an agenda to

exclude me because the groups leading it, like Arch City Defenders, thought a black candidate can better represent progressive values. A politically correct left run amok is as bad as a politically correct right. We don’t need a black mayor or a white mayor; we need a good mayor, and I think I’m it. The best black progressive in this race is this older white man. They did a great disservice by playing partisan politics, jeopardizing the 501(c)(3) status of these fine organizations. All I’ve asked for in this mayoral race is a level playing field to follow my ambitions for public service, and this wasn’t it. Bill Haas • St. Louis

Krewson’s priority is to make St. Louis safer Regarding “Tackling crime” (Jan. 29): Lyda Krewson’s top priority in her campaign for mayor is public safety. She wants to add more police and as part of this priority she wants to attack homelessness and add recreation centers. If one feels unsafe, nothing else really matters. Krewson knows that at the root of crime is poverty, joblessness and poor education, so these are priorities for her. She truly understands the efects of crime. Her husband was shot and killed in her presence. Instead of reacting with fear, anger and flight from the city, she remained in the same residence, and as the 28th Ward alderman has led her diverse ward to grow and flourish. As a successful businesswoman she can use her accounting skills to find the funds to add police and raise their salaries. Sharon Sahaida • St. Louis

Compliment in Bommarito ad is of-base In the Sunday Post-Dispatch, Frank J. Bommarito, CEO and founder of Bommarito Automotive Group, talked in his ad about the women’s march by saying “The Ladies Did It Right.” Since I marched in the St. Louis women’s march with my daughter and husband, I was very curious to read this. So I read it and I was amazed that he thought I would appreciate his approval that came with conditions and advice. It was a compliment only to women if their signage was “justifiable and reasonable” and went on to state that “only a small amount were disrespectful for the goals of the protest.” So he is giving us his approval if we protest as ladies, quietly and reasonably and have nothing on our signs that would ofend. Guess what? There is a grass-roots movement of women who are not going to protest quietly and with signs that will reflect their right to free speech. More power to us! To top it of, Bommarito advises us to follow Kellyanne Conway, who coined the phrase “alternative facts,” which means lying, and Ivanka Trump, who has not put America first because her companies are overseas. Over the weekend, when Muslim lives were turned upside down by an executive order, Ivanka Trump posted a photo of herself going out for the evening. So no, I will not follow her or Conway. I will follow women who have dedicated their lives to change the world and who have supported women and children, which Hillary Clinton has done.

St. Louis again is the murder capital of America We have to address hard issues to improve the plight of inner-city Americans. STACY WASHINGTON

For the third year in a row, St. Louis has the highest per-capita murder rate in America at 59.6 murders per 100,000 people. Commence the hand-wringing. People discuss poverty and racism and the difficulties of our city-county divide, then everyone drives out to their suburban homes or into their private city streets, and nothing much is done about it. What is fueling the carnage? The violence is being driven by Mexican drug cartels whose operators are fighting over turf and control of the heroin trade. News anchors and politicians here have lamented the epidemic-level growth of heroin abuse. Youths are dying of overdoses, and not all of them are from the inner city. The pain is creeping out, taking hold in the suburbs.

To combat this, St. Louis city mayoral candidate Lyda Krewson proposes a ban on AR-15s as a possible intervention. How many homicides in St. Louis are committed using a rifle? And when have gun bans ever helped reduce violence? Trafficking gangs and other criminals, by nature, tend to ignore any laws that restrict the weapons they can use when they go out to kill. Banning guns that people can use to defend themselves in their homes only makes the law-abiding citizens, already living in fear, less safe. Some discussions of the ramifications of racism usually enter into the discussion at this point, but to what end? Racism doesn’t make teenagers join gangs or deal drugs. Dancing around the issue by tying it to racism ignores the rising death toll. How many Dr. Ben Carsons and Erika Harolds are missing because of the endless death march in our inner city? There are 39 million blacks in America — 13 percent of the

population. Just over 72 percent of our babies are born out of wedlock, and we commit over half of the murders each year in our country. These statistics are harsh and painful to read and comprehend. But when do we force ourselves to address these issues openly so the hard work of improving the plight of inner-city Americans can begin? Mayor Francis Slay is on the way out, and his legacy is mixed. Many see his 16-year tenure as a moderate success with the new stadium and influx of businesses around Ballpark Village. The rise of the Bosnian community is a bright spot of revitalization in south city. Many younger families have returned, buying homes and sending their kids to the area’s charter and private schools. But a recent announcement by the owners of Brown & Crouppen Law Firm, which employs 200 people in downtown St. Louis, dampens any latent enthusiasm. Andy Crouppen, a principal at the firm, did not mince words when asked about the future of

their firm’s location in the city: “It is crime pushing us out — and nothing else.” If the firm leaves, will others follow suit? The timing of this announcement comes at an opportune time as the Board of Aldermen has chosen not to address crime in the city. Instead of adding police funding to the slate of proposed ballot issues for city voters to consider, aldermen want taxpayers to pony up $60 million to build a Major League Soccer stadium, which will include a 2.5 percent ticket tax that will go to the city. Never mind that soccer isn’t profitable and won’t bring other businesses or families to the city in the long run. Instead, we should invest $60 million or more into funding additional police. We must stop dithering on community-based programming to intervene in poverty-stricken areas with job training, high school degree programs and faith-based initiatives. And before the cries of secularism and separation of this and that ensue, ask yourself: What has worked so

far? Has the utter removal of God from public life served inner-city residents well? How can anyone who actually cares about the lives of inner-city residents plagued by poverty and crime defend the current remedies? Inner-city residents are gunned down at a daily rate. Most of those dying in our streets are young, black and male. These young men are our future, and saving them should trump our political ideology, antipathy toward religion and allegiance to certain acceptable norms. A murder rate on a par with that of Honduras in a highly developed, rich, beautiful city such as ours isn’t normal. Families matter, fatherhood matters, and until we address those truths, political posturing can only continue to fail us. Let’s put God back into the equation, link arms and save these young people.

When was America great? We need a new progressive movement to rebuild middle class. BY FRED TILINSKI

Donald Trump speaks at a meeting Wednesday about Black History Month.

In which Trump discovers some guy named Frederick Douglass President awkwardly kicks of Black History Month. DANA MILBANK Washington Post

President Trump is capable of many a miracle. On Wednesday, after just 12 days on the job, he raised the dead. Addressing a small group of African-American aides and supporters to kick off Black History Month, the new president not only offered pro forma praise for the usual suspects — Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr. — but also singled out somebody who recently caught his attention. “Frederick Douglass,” Trump said, “is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” Amazing job, Frederick! Great work! It’s unlikely anybody could recognize Douglass today, because he died in 1895. And though Trump may not have noticed it previously, Douglass has long occupied a revered place in American history: escaped slave, iconic abolitionist, world-renowned author; and publisher and counselor to presidents. But Trump’s awkwardness was not limited to placing Douglass in the present perfect tense. He also declared: “During this month, we honor the tremendous history of the African-Americans throughout our country — throughout the world, if you really think about it, right?” Well, if you really think about it, being African-American is, by definition, limited to Americans. But no matter. He was on a roll. Trump said he’d “gotten a real glimpse” of African-Americans when Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon and lone black person named to Trump’s Cabinet, took him to “places that I wasn’t so familiar with” during the campaign. Trump’s judgment: “They’re incredible people.” The best! It brought to mind Trump’s Cinco de Mayo tweet of a taco bowl and the words “I love Hispanics!”

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” — Donald Trump

Neither Latinos nor African-Americans are loving Trump back in large numbers. The Senate Judiciary Committee marked Black History Month by approving the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be attorney general; Sessions was once rejected for a federal judgeship for perceived racism. Trump’s nascent presidency has also brought about a revival of bogus claims about widespread voting fraud, which has been used as an excuse to restrict voting rights. And Trump’s new Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is already opposed by some civil rights groups who fear a further clampdown on ballot access. Trump earned 8 percent of the black vote in November after a racially charged campaign in which there were sometimes violent clashes with black demonstrators at his events and he appealed to minority voters by saying: “What the hell do you have to lose?” In fairness, Trump has struggled so far to find the right tone regardless of his audience. When he fired acting attorney general Sally Yates this

week for refusing to enforce the travel ban, the presidential statement was a campaign-style jab: Yates “betrayed the Department of Justice” and “is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.” Commemorating Black History Month, Trump had a tough act to follow. President Barack Obama delivered passionate remarks to adoring audiences at such events.“From our earliest days, black history has been American history,” he said last year, recalling “the slaves who quarried the stone to build this White House.” Obama went on at length, then added: “There’s a gap — there always will be — between who we are and the ‘perfect union,’ that ideal that we see. But what makes us exceptional, what makes us Americans is that we fight wars and pass laws, and we march, and we organize unions, and we stage protests, and that gap gets smaller over time.” That gap seems larger now. Trump’s Black History Month celebration was a carefully choreographed assembly of black administration officials and Trump supporters. It was billed as a “listening session,” but the press was brought in only for Trump’s talking. He was seated between Carson and Omarosa Manigault, one of his former contestants on “The Apprentice” and now a White House official. Trump had papers in front of him, but he didn’t rely on them. He did what came naturally. He attacked the press. He complained, again, about an erroneous report saying a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from the Oval Office. Turning to pro-Trump CNN contributor Paris Dennard, he said: “I don’t watch CNN so I don’t get to see you as much as I want to. I don’t like watching fake news. But Fox has treated me very nice — wherever Fox is, thank you.” Amazing work, Fox! But why don’t you invite Frederick Douglass on air more often?

President Donald Trump says,“Make America Great Again.” When was America great? Was it when business ruled the country and profits came first? If so, that was the age Mark Twain named Gilded. The U.S. economy grew at a fantastic pace in the last quarter of the 19th century, with no impediments, no regulation. Between 1880 and 1890, the average annual wage per industrial worker (including men, women and children) rose 48 percent. High wages beckoned and job-hungry immigrants found an immediate place at the table. Replacements were needed when work was dangerous. By 1900, 25,000 to 35,000 deaths and 1 million injuries per year occurred on industrial jobs. Fires, machinery accidents, train wrecks and other misfortunes were common. There was no federal regulation or enforcement of state or local safety regulations. There was no Social Security or health insurance, and courts were not sympathetic to worker claims. Thousands of men, women and children worked a standard 60-hour, six-day week in unsafe factories. Paid vacations, holidays, sick leave and personal time off was a dream for later generations. By 1890, 18 percent of the labor force consisted of children between the ages of 10 and 15. Corporations and trusts controlled most of the country’s finances. By the 20th century, gross domestic product and industrial production in the United States led the world. By 1900, almost 15 percent of total national assets were controlled by 0.03 percent of American citizens. Following the 1930s Depression, with regulation and high taxes on the super wealthy, the share of national wealth between the haves and the have-less class continued shrinking until the late 1970s. Then, another president promised “to get government off our backs,” and that “wealth will trickle down.” Twenty five years later, the poorest 20 percent in income actually claims a whopping 6 percent actual income increase from that trickle. It was the top 1 percent who would strike a gusher, realizing a 266 percent increase. America was great again — for them. Today, one individual controls as much wealth as 900. Their share of household wealth has risen from 7 percent in the 1970s to 22 percent. They represent 160,000 families. The middle class is shrinking. The share of total U.S. wealth owned by the bottom 90 percent of families fell from 36 percent in the mid-1980s to 23 percent in 2012. When America was great, government was pro-business. Congress, presidents and courts looked favorably on growth. Lacking political leadership, corruption spread through city, state and national governments. Forgettable presidents and grasping legislators dominated. Greatness for the elite and squalor for the multitudes did not satisfy religious groups. They established parochial schools, colleges, hospitals and charities and saw many of the problems faced by society during the Gilded Age crying for reform. Secular reformers believed that the problems of poverty, poor health, violence, greed, racism and class warfare could best be addressed by providing good education, a safer environment, an efficient workplace and honest government. Progressives believed that government could be a tool for change. They exposed unsanitary conditions in the meatpacking industry, generating federal inspection of meatpacking plants. The Department of Agriculture disclosed the dangers of chemical additives in canned foods. Unions crusaded for an eight-hour working day and the abolition of child labor; middle-class reformers demanded civil service reform, Prohibition and women’s suffrage. Local governments created public schools for children instead of factory jobs. It is not yet clear how a new administration dedicated to “a government of the rich, for the rich and by the rich” will best serve the 160,000 favorite families, or how soon the consequences soak in on us lesser folk helping us understand how our meager percentage of national wealth keeps slipping further away. That realization and coming reaction is exactly what will make America great again. It will create a new progressive movement that rebuilds the middle class and leaves the rich still comfortable, but well and fairly taxed. And wouldn’t it be nice if the improved schools springing from that movement helped new generations absorb history and master the math that helps everyone understand past and present political ploys favoring wealth above all? When we turn back to the values of caring and compassion, America can be great once more. Fred Tilinski lives in St. Peters.

On South Sudan basketball court, ethnic divisions fade

Trump cautions Israel on new settlements The White House on Thursday warned Israel that new or expanded settlements in the West Bank would be an impediment to peace, signaling that the Trump administration would seek some continuity with past presidents on Middle East policy. “The American desire for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians has remained unchanged for 50 years,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement. “While we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal.” The statement comes as Netanyahu announced plans for the construction of 5,500 new settlements this week.

Disabled young men impart lesson of perseverance amid civil war BY CHARLTON DOKI associated Press

JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN • Warn-

ings of possible genocide hang over the world’s youngest nation, but here on a basketball court under a fierce morning sun, South Sudan’s civil war seems a world away. Flashing up and down the court in blue and yellow jerseys, the players laugh and sweat as their wheelchairs jostle for position. This wheelchair basketball tournament in South Sudan’s capital, Juba, is the culmination of a two-week training session run by Jess Markt, a coach from Colorado who has led similar programs in countries ravaged by conflict. The disabled young South Sudanese men, drawn from various ethnic groups, are split into four teams that compete as dozens of spectators cheer them on. “The biggest lesson I have learned from these guys is the power of positive thought and perseverance,” Markt said. “They are very poor. Many of them are living in a camp outside the city or they live in rural areas that are very diicult situations, especially for disabled persons, and yet they are on the court playing, laughing and joking as though they don’t have any care in the world.” Many of the players were injured in South Sudan’s decadeslong struggle for independence from Sudan that ended with the creation of the new nation in 2011.

Wheelchair basketball players compete recently at a tournament following a two-week training session run by coach Jess Markt (far right), of Colorado, in Juba, South Sudan.

into a civil war in which thousands have been killed amid ethnic tension. The wheelchair basketball training marked the first time some of the men had been involved in sports, and Markt said he had to teach them how to work together as a team.

‘WE LOVE EACH OTHER’ James Amoudit Makuei, 19, who traveled hundreds of miles to take part, said he hopes to share his skills with other disabled people in his hometown, Yirol. “I had never played basketball before,” he said. “But I have learned a lot of things from the coaches here. ... And now I consider myself a basketball player.” He said he dreams of playing for the national team. Peter Bol Wal, a player-coach who was among the first South Sudanese to play wheelchair basketball, said more disabled people in the capital are embracing the sport. He knew only about 11 players in Juba in 2011 but the number has grown to two dozen, he said. “This basketball has helped unite us as people with disabili-

ties,” he said. “We love each other and we do not talk about our tribal diferences.” The International Committee of the Red Cross, which invited Markt to Juba, supports three physical rehabilitation centers that provide mobility devices and therapy in South Sudan. The aid group works with the South Sudan Wheelchair Basketball Association to put on weekly games. Markt, who began playing wheelchair basketball at age 19 after a spinal cord injury, has been coaching since 2009 and has trained teams in Afghanistan, India, Palestine and Cambodia. Markt described his experience in South Sudan as “unforgettable.” He recalled one young man, a polio victim, who shouted “Oh, my God!” when he scored for the first time after struggling to settle into the rhythm of the game. “That, to me, is the greatest thing about this type of program,” Markt said. “It is helping people who have amazing challenges that they are dealing with in their lives realize how powerful they can be.”

Massacre shocks, uniies Canada, Trudeau says • The massacre at a Quebec City mosque left Canada in shock but it has also uniied the country in solidarity with Muslims, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday at the funeral for three of the six men killed in the attack. Trudeau addressed the thousands packed into Quebec’s Maurice-Richard Arena in Arabic, saying, “As-Salaam-alaikum,” which means “peace be unto you,” drawing applause. The Liberal Party leader stood before the caskets of Abdelkrim Hassane, Khaled Belkacemi and Aboubaker Thabti, which were draped in lags of their homelands. The three men, along with three others, were killed when a gunman entered the mosque and opened ire during evening prayers. Nineteen more were wounded. University student Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, has been charged with murder and attempted murder. Merkel urges Turkey to uphold democracy • German Chancellor

Angela Merkel on Thursday urged Turkey to uphold democracy as the nation heads toward a vote on boosting the powers of the presidency, comments that ended up being part of a tense exchange with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Merkel was in Ankara for talks with Erdogan and other Turkish oicials aimed at soothing relations that have been strained by, among other things, accusations that Germany does not support Turkey in its ight against terrorist groups. Erdogan ended up taking ofense at the German leader’s use of the phrase “Islamist terror,” saying the two words should not be placed side-by-side. Putin discusses energy with Hungary’s ‘little Putin’ • Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Hungary on Thursday to discuss prospective energy projects with its leader, who has cozied up to Moscow despite Russia-West tensions. It was his irst trip to the European Union since the U.S. election. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a populist dubbed “little Putin” by his opponents, has been critical of the U.S. and EU sanctions imposed on Russia for its actions in Ukraine. Deaths of psychiatric patients spur anger • The deaths of nearly 100 psychiatric patients last year in South Africa’s most developed province have prompted anger at government oicials who transferred the patients to nongovernmental groups allegedly operating with invalid licenses. While President Jacob Zuma on Thursday expressed condolences to the families of the dead, some opposition leaders said Zuma was ultimately responsible. Only one of the deaths was linked to a mental illness, while 93 other patients died because of dehydration, diarrhea and other conditions that could have been treated, according to a health watchdog report.

REV. CHARLES SHARPE

Founder of Christian school dies; state raid in 2001 led to lawsuits ASSOCIATED PRESS

B E T H E L , M O. • The Rev. Charles “Charlie” Sharpe, the millionaire founder of a rural Missouri Christian school where a state raid over discipline tactics led to years of lawsuits, has died. The Rev. Sharpe died Wednesday (Feb. 1, 2017) at age 89. The Heartland community website says he had cardiac and renal

problems. The Rev. Sharpe founded Ozark National Life Insurance Co. in Kansas City in 1964. In 1996, he Sharpe opened the Heartland community in a remote area of northeastern Missouri, about 170 miles northwest of St. Louis. The community includes several

businesses, homes, a dairy farm, Heartland Christian College and Heartland Christian Academy. The academy is a K-12 school with about 225 students, including many sent there by their parents because of disciplinary problems. Juvenile authorities raided the school in 2001 amid reports of spankings and allegations that misbehaving students were

forced to stand in hip-deep manure. More than 100 students were removed. The Rev. Sharpe strongly denied the abuse claims, saying unruly kids were made to shovel manure but never stand in it. Parents overwhelmingly sided with the school. Students were allowed to return days after the raid. Five employees were charged but all were either

acquitted or had charges dropped. The raid led to several lawsuits against the state. Fifteen students eventually settled out of court. In 2005, the state settled a lawsuit from Heartland by agreeing to pay attorney fees and court costs that amounted to nearly $800,000. The academy also sued in federal court, but a jury ruled in 2010 that the raid did not violate constitutional rights.

DIGEST EPA nominee wins committee’s OK

A ST. LOUIS THING:

Senate Republicans pushed Scott Pruitt’s nomination to the Environmental Protection Agency through committee on Thursday, using a procedural maneuver for the third time this week to ignore Democrats and send one of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees to the Senate loor. Republicans on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee suspended the panel’s rules and approved Pruitt on Thursday morning, with 11 votes in favor and none opposed. Democrats did not show up. Democrats accused Pruitt of stonewalling their requests for additional information. “We still have not received the relevant documents and the substantive answers we’ve requested from Mr. Pruitt,” Ranking Member Tom Carper, D-Del., said in a statement after the vote.

TRIVIA NIGHT

Reddit bans white nationalists forum • Reddit has banned a forum for white nationalists from its social news website, citing the company’s rules against posting personal information and online harassment. Reddit spokesman Anna Soellner said in a statement that the company banned its “r/altright” forum on Wednesday for repeated violations of its content rules. Thousands of users subscribed to the forum named for the “alt-right” fringe movement, which has been described as an ofshoot of conservatism mixing racism, white nationalism and populism. U.S. urges judge to help ish species • U.S. oicials are pressing a federal judge to lift his 2015 order blocking a proposed irrigation dam and ish passage on the Yellowstone River, warning that a rapidly disappearing, ancient ish species faces a grim future with further delays to construction.

Test your knowledge of all things St. Louis at this one-of-a-kind St. Louis trivia night to help support 100 Neediest cases.

Police patrol Thursday near a prison in Smyrna, Del., where inmates had killed at least one guard and held hostages.

Fisheries biologists have questioned whether the $57 million project near Glendive, Mont., would indeed save the 125 wild pallid sturgeon that survive in the Yellowstone. For decades, the ish have been prevented from reaching spawning habitat hundreds of miles of upstream because of an existing rock weir at the proposed dam site. Federal wildlife oicials contend the ish passage around the site is the sturgeons’ best hope. Tribal leader criticizes some pipeline protesters • Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault is criticizing Dakota Access oil pipeline opponents who set up a camp on private land. Archambault says the move undermines the tribe’s eforts to make a legitimate case against the pipeline, which the tribe says threatens its drinking water. Authorities arrested 74 protesters after they set up teepees Wednesday on land owned by the pipeline developer. Archambault has called on the main protest camp on federal land to disband, saying “the ight is no longer here, but in the halls and courts of the federal government.” Backhoe is used to breach prison where hostages held • Police used a backhoe to breach a building at Delaware’s largest prison early Thursday, ending

what the governor called a “torturous” hostage standof that left one guard dead. Inmates used “sharp instruments” to assume control of the building at the James T. Vaughn Correction Center on Wednesday, taking three prison guards and a woman counselor hostage. The inmates told a local newspaper that concerns about their treatment and the leadership of the United States had prompted their actions. Authorities did not say how Sgt. Steven Floyd died. Delaware State Police entered the building about 5:05 a.m. Thursday and found Floyd unresponsive. He was pronounced dead about 25 minutes later. Teens in vandalism case ordered to learn about racism • Five teens have been ordered to learn lessons about racial and religious discrimination after they spray-painted racist graiti on a 19th-century schoolhouse that served black children during the segregation era in Ashburn, Virginia. News reports said that the boys, all 16 or 17, must visit the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and write reports on books written by black, Jewish and Afghan authors. Prosecutors don’t think the vandalism of the former Ashburn Colored School last fall was racially motivated. Three of the teens are minorities.

PEOPLE Rodent star uses poetry to deliver wintry news The handlers of Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, said the furry rodent had “predicted” six more weeks of winter after seeing his shadow at dawn Thursday. The top hat-wearing members of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle reveal Phil’s forecast every Feb. 2, based on a German legend surrounding Candlemas. The legend says that if a furry rodent casts a shadow that day, winter continues. If not, spring comes early. In reality, Phil’s prediction is decided ahead of time by the group on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill just outside Punxsutawney about 65 miles northeast of

Pittsburgh. Thousands of people gathered overnight to await the forecast. They were treated to folk music and a Star Wars-themed ireworks display under cloudy skies, with temperatures just below freezing, while they waited. The groundhog’s prediction is typically contained in a short poem, sometimes referencing current events or — when the nearby Pittsburgh Steelers are participating — a comment on the Super Bowl, which usually follows a few days later. But this year, Phil stayed on message and didn’t refer to football, President Donald Trump or anything other than the weather. “It’s mighty cold weather you’ve been braving.

Punxsutawney Phil, shall not dawdle,” the proclamation read. “My faithful followers, I could clearly see a beautiful, perfect shadow of me. Six more weeks of winter, it shall be!” McConaughey recommends embracing Trump presidency • Matthew McConaughey says it’s time for Hollywood to “embrace and shake hands” with the fact that Donald Trump is president. The Oscar winner tells the BBC that Trump’s rise to power is “as divisive of an inauguration” as there has ever been. When asked by interviewer Andrew Marr if Hollywood’s elite should give Trump a break, McConaughey replied, “They don’t have a choice now, he’s our president.” McConaughey is promoting his new movie, “Gold,” in which he plays a businessman who discovers the precious metal in the jungles of Indonesia.

BERKELEY, CALIF. • The chaos at the University of California, Berkeley, was shocking: Protesters set fires, smashed windows, hurled explosives at police and ultimately achieved their goal of canceling an appearance by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. The scene gained worldwide attention not just because of the mayhem but because of where it took place. UC Berkeley is the birthplace of the free-speech movement and has been known for more than a half-century as a bastion of tolerance. A s t h e u n iversi ty cleaned up Thursday, it struggled with questions about why the violence spun out of control and what has happened to the open-minded Berkeley of the 1960s. “It was not a proud night for this campus,” school spokesman Dan Mogulof said, later adding, “We are proud of our history and legacy as the home of the free-speech movement.” Officials knew there was a potential for vio-

Protesters watch a ire burn at the University of California, Berkeley, campus on Wednesday.

lence and went to “extraordinary lengths” to prepare for the event, Mogulof said in a statement. But school authorities say they believe the instigators were not Berkeley students. Berkeley was the last stop on Yiannopoulos’ college tour, which had sparked protests and sporadic violence around the country. He is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and a selfproclaimed internet troll whose comments have been criticized as racist, misogynist and antiMuslim. Dozens of police were called to Berkeley from nine UC campuses. The student union where the talk was scheduled was locked down hours before the event. Layers of metal barricades were erected around the building with riot police standing guard. But Mogulof said what transpired Wednesday night was unprecedented. The protests started peacefully about 4 p.m. As night fell, the crowd swelled to more than 1,500, police estimated, and “more than 100 armed individuals clad in ninja-like uniforms who utilized paramilitary tactics” infiltrated the crowd

and began hurling fireworks, Molotov cocktails, rocks and other objects at police, Mogulof said. They toppled the barricades and used them to bash windows of the student union and then set fire to a kerosene generator, sparking a blaze that burned for over an hour. Later, after the crowds dispersed, a small group took the chaos of campus and into the nearby city streets of Berkeley. Workers at several banks downtown were replacing broken windows Thursday, repairing damaged cash machines and cleaning graiti. Amid the cleanup, a 21-year-old student was brazenly attacked on campus. The student, Jack Palkovic, was wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap as he headed to class when a white SUV slammed to a halt, and two students jumped out and pummeled him. Police arrived and arrested both men. Trump questioned whether Berkeley should be granted federal funding: “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view — NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”

Raid that killed SEAL worth it, Spicer says ‘Well-thought-out and executed efort’ will help prevent future loss of life, he asserts BY MICHAEL A. MEMOLI Tribune News Service

WA S H I N GTO N • The White House stood by on Thursday its characterization of a covert counterterrorism operation in Yemen as a success, a day after the Pentagon concluded that civilians had probably been killed and President Donald Trump honored the Navy SEAL gunned down in the assault. “It’s hard to ever call something a complete success when you have the loss of life or people injured,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said. Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens, 36, was the first known combat fatality of Trump’s presidency. “But I think when you look at the totality of what was gained to prevent the future loss of life ... it is a successful operation by all standards,” Spicer added. Trump t rave l e d Wednesday to Dover Air Force Base to join Owens’ family as his remains were returned to the U.S. Three other U.S. service members were also wounded in the raid, and more than a dozen women and children were killed. U.S. officials have said some of the women were militants, but after images surfaced on social media of the bodies of dead women

and children, purportedly from the raid, the Pentagon acknowledged late Wednesday that civilians had also probably been killed. The operation was planned as an assault on what U.S. officials had concluded was a headquarters for al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, an offshoot of the terrorist group that itself has repeatedly attacked in the West. It claimed responsibility for the massacre at Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris in 2015 that killed 12. U.S. officials wanted to gather computers and other electronics believed to contain intelligence about the group. In a statement Sunday, Trump called the raid “successful,” noting that 14 militants were killed and that intelligence was seized “that will assist the U.S. in preventing terrorism against its citizens and people around the world.” But the raid devolved unexpectedly into a deadly firefight. Amid new reports raising questions about the operation, Spicer offered an unusually detailed public accounting of the decision-making process, emphasizing that planning for the operation began during the administration of President Barack Obama. The Pentagon signed of

Sappington ”The Key To Outdoor Living” Garden Shop

on the operation Dec. 19 and other agencies gave their approval in the ensuing weeks. Among the conclusions, Spicer said, was to wait to launch the raid until the next moon-

less night, which would not occur until after Trump took oice. On Jan. 24, the new defense secretary, Jim Mattis, conveyed his support for the operation. Trump

dined the next day with an expanded team including Mattis, Vice President Mike Pence, chief strategist Steve Bannon, national security adviser Michael Flynn, CIA Director

Mike Pompeo and military leaders. “The indication at that time was to go ahead,” Spicer said. “This was a very, very well-thoughtout and executed efort.”

2 proposals eye vacant hospital as nonproit hub or mixed-use site BY TIM BRYANT St. Louis Post-Dispatch

St. Louis development officials are considering two proposals to renovate the former St. Luke’s Hospital on Delmar Boulevard as oices, apartments and stores. Most recently the old hospital at 5535 Delmar was the site of St. Louis ConnectCare, which filed for bankruptcy in 2013. The city’s

Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority owns the vacant building complex. Behind one of the redevelopment proposals is Maxine Clark, founder and retired chief executive of Build-A-Bear Workshop, and Bob Clark, chairman and chief executive of Clayco Corp. Their proposed project is called Delmar Divine. The other proposal, called

Grand Missourian International, is from Prad Sabharwal, managing director of Ananta Advisors, an international real estate investment firm based in St. Louis. Sabharwal and Bob Clark, who is not related to Maxine Clark, made separate presentations about their projects Jan. 24 at a two-hour closed meeting of the LCRA board. Otis Williams, executive director of the St. Louis

Development Corp., said afterward the board will get more information before deciding which project to support. Both projects propose renovation of the existing buildings. Grand Missourian International plans include apartments, a movie theater and workshops for makers of clothing, home See HOSPITAL • Page B5

Med-tech startup Adarza inds its footing in St. Louis; investors take note DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Some companies bloom wherever they happen to be planted; others need to be transplanted to somewhere with the right nutrients. Adarza BioSystems, now based in O’Fallon, Mo., is among the latter.

Founded in upstate New York based on research at the University of Rochester, the diagnostic technology firm came to St. Louis in 2013 in search of funding, facilities and expertise. Four years later, Adarza employs 20 people here and is gearing up to hire a half-dozen more. It has raised $31 million, much of it from local investors.

KIMMSWICK • Supporters of getting the Delta Queen steamboat cruising again say safety concerns recently expressed by the head of the Coast Guard will be addressed before the vessel takes to the water. An exemption to the Safety of Life at Sea Act, a federal law that prohibits overnight excursions on wooden vessels, is needed before the boat can carry passengers. The 285-foot-long vessel, with 88 cabins, had the exemption for roughly 40 years before losing it in 2008.

St. Louis’ largest and most energy-intensive buildings will soon have help identifying opportunities for savings after the Board of Aldermen unanimously approved a bill this week that establishes an energy monitoring, or “benchmarking,” requirement for certain commercial properties. The bulk of the large commercial buildings that will be afected by the ordinance are in Ward 7, which includes much of downtown. Sponsor Jack Coatar, 7th Ward alderman, says

Panera Bread, which operates locally as St. Louis Bread Co., is adding delivery to customers in the St. Louis area. Signs went up at St. Louis Bread Co. stores this week touting the new delivery service, and the company has dozens of jobs posted for delivery drivers in the St. Louis area. St. Louis Bread Co. will slowly add delivery at individual restaurants in the coming weeks, Panera’s president, Blaine Hurst, told the Post-Dispatch.

By the end of 2016, Panera had delivery at 15 percent of its chain, or about 300 restaurants, in multiple markets. Delivery has been popular at restaurants after launching, Hurst said. Panera delivery brings in $5,000 in revenue weekly, on average, 90 days after the service is made available. Panera, which is headquartered in Sunset Hills, ofers local delivery to catering customers in St. Louis but hadn’t yet extended delivery for individual orders to

Customers will see more tech upgrades soon. In the coming weeks, Panera plans to roll out new ordering technology for its delivery service that allows customers to track their order and get text or email updates about order status. “We’ll deliver a much more Uber-like experience,” Hurst said of the changes.

BUSINESS DIGEST KMOX parent to merge with Entercom • CBS Corp. will merge its radio business with Entercom Communications Corp. in a tax-free deal, which the companies said would produce the second-largest radio broadcaster in the United States by revenue. The merged entity will own 244 stations, including CBS Radio’s 117 stations. CBS stations in St. Louis include KMOX (AM 1120), which began broadcasting in 1925 and bills itself as the “Voice of St. Louis,” “Fresh 102.5” (KEZK 102.5 FM) and “Y98” (KYKY 98.1 FM). KMOX became an original member of the CBS network of stations in 1927. Entercom has no St. Louis stations but has a big presence in Kansas City. Productivity growth slowed at end of 2016 • The productivity of American workers rose in the October-December period but at a slower pace than the previous quarter. Growth in labor costs increased. Productivity climbed at an annual rate of 1.3 percent in the fourth quarter, weaker than the 3.5 percent productivity growth in the July-September period, the Labor Department reported Thursday. Labor costs rose at a 1.7 percent rate, up from a tiny 0.2 percent gain in the third quarter. For the year, productivity rose 0.2 percent. It was the worst showing in ive years. Razor, sunscreen sales lift Edgewell’s 1Q • Edgewell Personal Care’s irst quarter proit rose, boosted by growth in razor and sunscreen sales. Chesterield-based Edgewell, whose brands include Banana Boat

sunscreen, Schick razors and Edge shave gel, reported on Thursday a $33.5 million proit for the quarter that ended Dec. 31, or 58 cents a share, up from $23.7 million, or 40 cents a share a year earlier. The earnings missed analysts’ estimates of 66 cents a share for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Net sales fell to $485 million, down from $495 million a year earlier. Energizer 1Q revenue, proit rise • Energizer Holdings’ proit and revenue rose in the irst quarter. The Town and Country-based battery maker reported on Wednesday a $95.6 million proit for the irst quarter that ended Dec. 31, or $1.52 a share, up from $65.5 million, or $1.05 a share, a year earlier. The earnings beat analysts’ estimates of $1.23 a share for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Net sales in the irst quarter rose 10.4 percent to $559.6 million, also beating analysts’ estimates. Post Holdings 1Q earnings soar • Post Holdings reported on Thursday a big jump in net earnings for the irst quarter even as sales remained relatively lat. The Brentwood-based food company reported net earnings of $94.2 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, in the period ended Dec. 31. That compared favorably to net earnings of $10.5 million, or 15 cents, in the year-earlier period. Net sales rose 0.1 percent to $1.25 billion in the period. Post Holdings’ cereal brands include Honey Bunches of Oats and Raisin Bran, and the company also makes egg, potato, cheese and pasta products.

Post-Dispatch owner reports higher earnings • Lee Enterprises, publisher of the St. Louis PostDispatch, reported higher irstquarter earnings on lower revenue. Net income for the period ended Dec. 25 was $12.4 million, or 22 cents per diluted share, up from $11.5 million, or 21 cents, in the yearearlier period. Total operating revenue for the quarter fell 7.2 percent to $154 million, the Davenport, Iowa-based company said Thursday. Lee’s media products — daily newspapers, weekly and specialty publications and digital products — serve 49 markets in 21 states. Teen apparel retailer back in bankruptcy court • Wet Seal LLC iled for bankruptcy protection on Thursday after reports last week that the struggling teen apparel retailer had closed all its stores, including one at St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights, after it was unable to ind a buyer. The Irving, Calif.-based company listed assets of $10 million to $50 million and liabilities of $50 million to $100 million in a iling with the U.S. bankruptcy court in Delaware. Thursday’s bankruptcy iling is Wet Seal’s second, following a Chapter 11 iling in 2015. Mortgage rates barely budge • Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the rate on 30-year ixed-rate loans was unchanged from last week at an average 4.19 percent. That was still sharply higher than a 30-year rate that averaged 3.65 percent for all of 2016, the lowest level recorded from records dating to 1971. A year ago, the benchmark rate stood at 3.72 percent. From staf and wire reports

Wall Street stalls as market, Trump priorities diverge REUTERS

NEW YORK • U.S. stocks

ended little changed on Thursday as the recent rally continued to stall after President Donald Trump’s latest comments on trade and the policies he will pursue. The S&P 500 traded at levels it was at six weeks ago, losing steam as investors focus on Trump’s priorities, such as restricting travel to the United States and rewriting trade deals. Markets had run up sharply after Trump’s Nov. 8 election win on the expectation that tax cuts, deregulation and a fiscal stimulus would accelerate economic growth. “The market had only priced in the potentially good type of policies like tax cuts,” said Arian Vojdani, investment strategist at MV Financial in Bethesda, Md. “Now we’re seeing potential protectionist and populist sentiment really come out and take the front seat,” Vojdani said. “That could be bad for the world economy, and that’s why markets are taking a step back.” The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.03 points, or 0.03 percent, to 19,884.91; the S&P 500 gained 1.3 points, or 0.06 percent, to 2,280.85; and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 6.45 points, or 0.11 percent, to 5,636.20. Trump reiterated his concerns about the trade deal with Canada and Mexico and

said he would like to speed up talks to either renegotiate or replace it. Investors are also wary of the consequences of other of Trump’s comments, including labeling a refugee swap agreement with staunch ally Australia as a “dumb deal” and that “nothing is of the table” in dealing with Iran after it test-fired a ballistic missile. “There’s a lot of noise, and we have to try at best to look at fundamentals,” Vojdani said. Earnings of S&P 500 companies are estimated to have risen 7.5 percent during the last quarter of 2016 — the most in nine quarters, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S data. After the closing bell, Amazon shares fell 3.7 percent as the retailer’s revenue missed analyst estimates. The company forecast a bigger-thanexpected fall in operating income for the current quarter. Facebook fell 1.8 percent during the regular session to $130.84 after hitting a record high of $135.49. Its results on Wednesday beat earnings and revenue expectations. Macy’s shares rose 5.2 percent to $30.72. The New York Post reported the retailer’s outgoing CEO, Terry Lundgren, has become open to offers from potential buyers. The stock hit a high of $31.06 and trading volume was 2.1 times the average over the last 10 days.

Amazon now charging taxes in Missouri Speculation builds that company is planning to build warehouse in state

Med-tech startup on fast track to get product to market NICKLAUS • FROM B1

BY LISA BROWN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Amazon began charging taxes on merchandise sold to Missouri customers Wednesday. Missouri joined a list of more than 30 states Feb. 1 where Amazon charges taxes. Amazon is charging customers a cumulative tax rate that includes state and local taxes. A refrigerator water filter purchased by a St. Ann customer on Amazon.com that would have cost $77.98 earlier in the week cost $84.50 on Feb. 1, which included $6.52 in state and local taxes. The cumulative tax rate in St. Ann is 8.363 percent. The cumulative tax rate includes state taxes, county and city taxes. The same water filter would cost a bit more or less, depending on the customer’s address. At a downtown St. Louis address, the cumulative sales tax rate is 8.679 percent. A breakdown of tax rates is available online at https://dors.mo.gov/ tax/strgis/input.jsp. Some customers complained on social media about the higher cost, arguing Amazon shouldn’t be charging taxes in

Coast Guard admiral voiced safety concerns QUEEN • FROM B1

A bill introduced last month by Sens. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., would restore that exemption and require, among other things, that the Delta Queen each year modify at least 10 percent of the wooden portions of the vessel’s superstructure to meet the U.S. safety law. But in an interview with the PostDispatch, Coast Guard Adm. Paul Zukunft cited safety worries such as the boat’s boilers, which date to 1926, being exposed to bare wood. He also was concerned that there’s only one way on and off the boat, and said little work has been done to get the boat up to date. McCaskill’s oice said those concerns are addressed in the bill before Congress, citing its provisions that boilers and generators must be upgraded within

noncombustible enclosures equipped with fire suppression systems, and that “multiple forms of egress” be provided of the vessel’s bow and stern. The Delta Queen was bought by its current owners in February 2015 with the goal to restore the vessel. But plans for big repairs are stalled until the federal legislation passes and an engineering plan is in place that has the Coast Guard’s approval, said Leah Ann Ingram, the Delta Queen’s chief operating oicer. She said the cost to upgrade the boat is $10 million. Doing big repairs before a detailed agreement is in place with the Coast Guard wouldn’t make sense, she said. Under the best-case scenario, Ingram said the boat could be cruising in the spring of 2018 if an exemption passes this spring. The company had hoped to secure the

exemption by the end of 2015, which didn’t happen. The Delta Queen steamboat began service as an overnight passenger vessel in 1927. It carried passengers, cargo and automobiles between Sacramento and San Francisco, as well as dignitaries, including three U.S. presidents. A new restaurant and the corporate offices of the Delta Queen Steamboat Co. opened last fall in the Jefferson County river town of Kimmswick, but the boat remains docked in Houma, La. It’s hoped the boat eventually will travel to more than 80 ports, including New Orleans and Memphis, Tenn., and on rivers other than the Mississippi to destinations including Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.

City receives funding for new energy initiative ENERGY • FROM B1

building managers were largely receptive to the measure, since many are already taking steps to trim electricity consumption. In November, St. Louis became one of 20 cities nationwide to be selected for the benchmarking initiative, known as the City Energy Project. A joint venture of the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Institute for Market Transformation, the project provides both the funding and technical support for tracking energy usage in large buildings, giving them the tools to save power and money.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE NOTES Envoy Commercial Real Estate represented Newby Seeger Industrial in the purchase of the 128,600-square-foot industrial building at 9060 Latty Avenue, Berkeley, from First Industrial LP, represented by Cushman & Wakeield. Manor Real Estate represented Education Capital Solutions LLC in the sale of the 153,500-squarefoot institutional building at 1008 South Spring Avenue, to St. Louis University, represented by Colliers International. Pace Properties represented parties in these transactions: • Spanish Woods LLC in the lease of 6,375 square feet of retail space at 12445 Dorsett Road, Maryland Heights, to Mercy Health, represented by Colliers International. • First Watch in the lease of 3,339 square feet of retail space at Streets of St. Charles, St. Charles, from SCND Block 1000 LLC, represented by Cullinan Properties. • Pace-Highlands Associates LLC in the lease of 1,852 square feet of retail space at 961 Brittany Parkway, Manchester, to Ultimate Lacrosse.

The program aims to enable $1.5 billion in annual energy savings nationwide by 2030. “We know that large, commercial buildings produce far more greenhouse gases than small residential buildings,” Coatar said. Coatar said the only buildings that will have to report energy usage information in the first year of the program are St. Louis city buildings. “We’re going to smooth out the process using our own buildings,” said Coatar. He said privately owned buildings would join in the second year of the effort. Coatar said he does not envision the program eventually being expanded to

other types of buildings. Ashok Gupta, a Kansas City-based senior energy economist for the NRDC, was surprised by how quickly the city has put the project into play. “I can’t believe this bill passed as quickly as it did,” Gupta said. “I don’t think any other city has passed it this fast.” Gupta said the project would help connect any “poor performers” with utility rebate programs for improving eiciency or Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing.

manufacturing — to lease on the O’Fallon, Mo., campus of SunEdison Semiconductor, which makes silicon wafers. “St. Louis gives us the opportunity to pull from a very rich pool of resources and get the right people in the right place at the right time,” says Bryan Witherbee, Adarza’s president. Witherbee, a former Monsanto and Pfizer scientist who joined the company last month, is one of those timely hires. As chief scientific officer at GenCell Biosystems, an Irish company that had a small oice in St. Louis, he scaled up manufacturing of a product designed for medical Witherbee researchers. That happens to be the stage where Adarza finds itself. The company has developed a technology that deposits up to 400 antibody droplets on a silicon chip less than a quarter-inch square. When a blood sample or other fluid is placed on the chip, the droplets detect proteins that are indicators of, for example, insulin levels, cancer or inflammation. Adarza has proven that its technology works, and has talked to enough researchers to know there’s a market. Witherbee said the company hopes to be mass-producing the arrays in 15 to 18 months. If it hits that target, Adarza will be one of the fastest St. Louis medical-technology startups to commercialize a product. Most drug and device firms here are at earlier stages, doing research or testing. St. Louis investors have helped propel the company forward. Adarza came here in 2013 after a small investment by BioGenerator and David Smoller, a former Sigma-Aldrich executive. It also has raised money from St. Louis Arch Angels, Arch Grants, Cultivation Capital, Lewis & Clark Ventures, the Helix Fund and Missouri Technology Corp. A recent $17 million round, enough to allow Adarza to scale up production, was led by RiverVest Venture Partners of Clayton. “What made it very attractive to us was when they demonstrated that not only was the technology feasible, it was also scalable,” says Jay Schmelter, a RiverVest managing director. RiverVest typically invests with a fiveyear horizon, and Schmelter said the firm believes Adarza can achieve an exit — either a sale or an initial public ofering — within that span. If that happens, it will be an important win for St. Louis’ medical-technology ecosystem. BioGenerator, launched in 2003 to nurture homegrown startups, has occasionally lured firms from other cities that lacked the money or the facilities they needed. Adarza was one of those. Charlie Bolten, a BioGenerator vice president, recalled that the initial investment happened quickly. “They were in a spot in Rochester where there wasn’t a lot of capital,” he said. “They also needed to be where there were potential customers and industry expertise, and we had both.” Witherbee said St. Louis has proven to be the ideal place to build this particular company. Adarza isn’t at the finish line, he cautions, but it’s on a path that should lead there. David Nicklaus • 314-340-8213 @dnickbiz on Twitter dnicklaus@post-dispatch.com

SLU buys former charter school building • St. Louis University has bought the former Academy of Environmental Science and Mathematics Middle School building at Chouteau and South Spring avenues. The $7.8 million acquisition adds about 3 acres and a 153,000-square-foot building to SLU’s holdings as it and its health care partner, SSM Health, ready plans for a new St. Louis University Hospital. SLU said it will use the building for faculty and administrative support for SLUCare, the university’s physician group. The building is just west of the SLU-owned Pevely Dairy and Missouri Belting buildings that the university plans to tear down to make room for what it calls a “major new educational facility” for its health sciences schools. SLU recently won development powers from the city that allows it to ofer tax abatement to developers to guide development in the area.

Health insurers in limbo over what’s after ACA Slow, painful demise of the Afordable Care Act leaves companies in doubt BY ZACHARY TRACER Bloomberg

The Afordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law, looks as if it’s going away. Until that happens, big health insurers aren’t sure what to do with it. Republicans and President Donald Trump haven’t given details on how they’ll repeal and replace the law known as Obamacare. Uncertainty about the law, which covers millions of Americans, has left companies trying to figure out if they’re better of stuck in limbo or just quitting entirely. Aetna Inc. fired a warning shot this week, saying it won’t start selling such plans again in the states where it has pulled out, and may continue shrinking its participation. There’s not enough time to develop plans and prices for new markets before next year, Chief Executive Oicer Mark Bertolini said. “There is no possible way we’ll be prepared to do that, given the unclear nature of where regulation’s headed,” he said on a conference call with analysts. Congressional Republicans face a dilemma, too. They want to paint the law as collapsing to

help justify its repeal. Yet they need to keep its markets humming this year, and probably into 2018, or take the blame for millions of people who might lose coverage. “The amount of uncertainty right now is quite problematic,” said Karen Ignagni, CEO of EmblemHealth, a nonprofit insurer in New York. “There’s a lot of chatter, but there’s not a lot we know.” Insurers also have their eyes on Trump for signs of whether his administration will stabilize markets or undermine them. So far, the record is mixed. Trump signed an executive order directing agencies to minimize the ACA’s burdens, though it’s not clear what actions they’ll take. And the Department of Health and Human Services briefly halted eforts to encourage people to sign up for ACA health plans, before resuming them. Some insurers, including Clayton-based Centene Corp., have fared well with Obamacare. CEO Michael Neidorf says the company will keep ofering coverage so long as the markets don’t look markedly worse come September or October. “It’s business as usual, until we hear otherwise,” he said. “We just

take calculated risks, and on this one, they’re not going to leave 20 million people uninsured.” However, most of the industry will face challenges to stay in ACA marketplaces. Plans must be filed with state and federal official starting in April. Republicans are saying their proposals for replacements may come the same month, if not later, and insurers may not have the information they need to participate. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, is accusing Republicans of sowing crippling doubts about the health law.

Reckitt Group targets Mead Johnson with surprise bid of $16.7 billion BLOOMBERG

Reckitt Benckiser Group emerged as a surprise suitor for perennial bid candidate Mead Johnson Nutrition, starting talks on a $16.7 billion purchase of the baby-food maker to build its faster growing consumer-health business and its presence in Asia. Reckitt Benckiser, the maker of Lysol cleaners, said Wednesday that it was in advanced negotiations to acquire the U.S. company for $90 a share in cash in what would be the second-biggest acquisition by a British company since the Brexit vote. Speculation of a bid for Mead Johnson has been rife since the company, maker of Enfamil, went public in 2009, though Nestlé and French yogurt maker Danone have been considered likely buyers. “Reckitt Benckiser had never even been considered as a potential acquirer,” Andrew Wood, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, said in a note. “Infant formula

The project would produce 500 jobs, according to the presentation to the LCRA board. Sabharwal declined this week to discuss his project. He said through a spokesman he would speak about the plan after the LCRA board selects one of the proposals.

Up until now, the company has turned more to over-thecounter health brands such as Mucinex and Scholl for growth, with the home and personal-care divisions expanding more slowly. Hygiene represents about 40 percent of Reckitt Benckiser’s sales, compared with 33 percent for health. Shares of Glenview, Ill.-based Mead Johnson had fallen about 34 percent from their 2015 peak, hurt in part by a resurgence in interest in breastfeeding in countries such as China. With a 10 percent share of the baby-food market, the company trails Nestlé and Danone globally, though it’s second only to Nestlé in Asia, the biggest market. Baby food is expected to be one of Asia’s fastest-growing food categories.

organization’s website. Maxine Clark is a member of the group’s local and national boards. She said some of Delmar Divine’s 160 apartments could provide affordable housing for Teach for America participants. Clark, who has focused on education issues since retiring from Build-A-Bear in 2013, said Delmar Divine could be a base of operations for nonprofit organizations unable to afford pricier offices. She said she began considering such a project years ago and recruited Bob Clark, a longtime acquaintance, to the efort. “We’re both get-it-done people,” she said. Clark said their project’s name is a reference to the “Delmar divide,” the oftcited description of the race-and-wealth line that splits the city between the mostly poor and nearly all black north and the wealthier, mostly white south. Delmar Divine could help erase the divide, said Clark, adding that it could prompt redevelopment north toward the KIPP: Victory Academy elementary

“They create a lack of confidence and then they point and say, ‘See, the ACA is failing,’” Hoyer said. “The chaos and uncertainty that this administration has created over the last 10 days has led to the very thing that they say is the problem.” Though the industry’s main lobby group, America’s Health Insurance Plans, hasn’t defended the ACA, it has offered to help Republicans craft replacement plans “that deliver both shortterm stability and long-term improvement.” A group of researchers at Georgetown University inter-

viewed 13 insurers operating in 28 states to learn how they’re planning for a repeal. Sabrina Corlette, the lead author, said companies were frustrated. “They just need to know what the rules are,” said Corlette, a research professor at the school. AHIP said subsidies to help people buy insurance should continue at least this year, as should the expansion of Medicaid, a program that covers the poor and disabled. The group also wants promised payments to health insurers, such as for costsharing reductions and the law’s reinsurance program, to continue. A tax on health insurers, already suspended for this year, should be repealed permanently, AHIP said. J. Mario Molina, the CEO of Molina Healthcare Inc., which also largely ofers Medicaid plans and ACA plans tailored to lowerincome individuals, said he was skeptical of some of the fixes he’s seen so far, particularly the emphasis on health savings accounts paired with health plans with high deductibles. “I don’t think those things, as much as the Republicans like them, are going to be as popular as they think with low-income people,” he said. “Right now, people hate these high-deductible plans.”

Samsung Electronics may build U.S. manufacturing base for appliances REUTERS

SEOUL • Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. may build a U.S. plant for its home appliances business, a person familiar with the matter said, the latest global firm to consider a response to criticism about imports from President Donald Trump. Specifics such as the amount the electronics giant might invest and where the new base could be situated have yet to be decided, said the person, declining to be identified because of not being authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Trump administration’s threats to impose an import tax have triggered a rash of promises by companies to invest more in the United States. In response to the news about Samsung, Trump tweeted on Thursday: “Thank you, @samsung! We would love to have you!” Samsung declined to comment on whether it had any specific plans to add production facilities in the U.S. but said it had already made significant invest-

Clark is chief executive of the Clark-Fox Family Foundation, which aims — in its words — to “fund the future of St. Louis through education, community initiatives, and economic development.” She said Delmar Divine residents and businesses would benefit from the Loop Trolley streetcar line, which is a block west of the old hospital, and two MetroLink stations in the vicinity. Bob Clark said Thursday that Delmar Divine is more of a “community gesture” than the projects Clayco typically undertakes. He said that clustering nonprofits at the Delmar site could allow them to share some facilities, such as conference rooms, and exchange ideas.

South Korean firms have not been singled out so far, but some have embarked on pre-emptive moves to ward of criticism. The Hyundai Motor Group said last month that it planned to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years. LG Electronics Inc. also announced in January that it would decide on whether to build a manufacturing base in the United States within the first half of the year and warned of risks from the Trump administration’s trade policies. If a border tax was imposed, investing in plants would be essential if Samsung wanted to remain competitive with rivals such as Whirlpool Corp. that make appliances in the U.S.country.

St. Luke’s occupied its first building on Delmar in 1904, with additions constructed as needed, according to a neighborhood history Norbury Wayman wrote for the city in the 1970s. Hospital expansion occurred after the Presbyterians joined the Episcopal church in supporting the hospital, according to Wayman, an artist and historian. More sections were added until the large building that faces Delmar was completed in 1969. The nonprofit ConnectCare opened in 1998 to replace the St. Louis Regional Medical Center operated by the city and St. Louis County. St. Luke’s opened its current hospital in Chesterfield in 1975.

Some companies are mobilizing against GOP talk of import tax hey warn of ripple efect: higher costs for buyers and less jobs in America

BY STAN CHOE Associated Press

REUTERS

WASHINGTON • Days before a group of

Republican lawmakers were due to discuss their party’s controversial proposal to tax all imports, Toyota Motor Corp. sent an urgent message to its U.S. dealers — tell the politicians the tax would seriously hurt car buyers. Some of Toyota’s 1,500 dealers heeded the call and contacted members of the House of Representatives’ tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, urging them to rethink their proposal, according to people familiar with the efort. Imposing a 20 percent tax on imports would force consumers to pay potentially thousands of dollars more for vehicles, they warned. The Japanese automaker’s mobilization of its army of dealers underscores the growing alarm among some of the world’s largest companies that sell imported goods in the United States. They fear a big tax on imports would hurt their sales and profits and put them at a disadvantage to rivals more reliant on U.S.made products. “Cost is going to go up, as a result demand is going to go down. As a result, we’re not going to be able to employ as many as people as we do today. That’s my biggest fear,” Toyota’s North America CEO Jim Lentz said in an interview. Toyota dealers employ more than 97,000 people in the United States. While companies and industry groups frequently lobby Congress, the threat of an import tax has mobilized an unusually broad swath of firms at home and abroad. That lobbying effort is taking place largely out of the public eye partly to avoid potential conflict with President Donald Trump, who has attacked companies for manufacturing abroad for U.S. consumers. Trump recently targeted Toyota, threatening to impose a hefty fee on the world’s largest automaker if it builds its Corolla cars for the U.S. market at a plant in Mexico. The White House said last week that a border tax is one option under review to pay for a wall with Mexico, although what exactly Trump is planning to do is still not clear. He has pledged to impose a “big border tax” on Mexican imports.

Many workers contribute more, borrow less from 401(k)s

BMWs manufactured at the company’s plant in Greer, S.C., are driven onto a ship in March in Charleston, S.C. Many companies and manufacturers that import goods are reaching out to lawmakers in hopes of preventing a tax on goods from other countries.

The plan proposed by House Republicans would cut corporate income tax to 20 percent from 35 percent, exclude export revenue from taxable income and impose the 20 percent tax on imports. Companies that rely heavily on imports say a border tax will outweigh the benefit of a lower headline corporate tax. As car dealers are reaching out to members of Congress in their districts, Toyota and other automakers are lobbying lawmakers in states where they have large manufacturing plants and employ thousands of workers. The No. 3 vehicle seller in the United States behind General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co., Toyota imports about 1.2 million vehicles to the U.S. market annually, half of its 2.4 million U.S. sales. It employs 40,000 people directly.

BABY SUPPLIES AND BEER Toyota and the automakers are not alone in this lobbying efort. Target Corp.’s chief executive, Brian Cornell, traveled to Washington to meet members of the House Ways and Means Committee. He told them an import tax could impact consumers’ ability to buy essential goods, such as baby supplies that are made overseas and imported to the United States, according to a person familiar with the talks. Target spokeswoman Dustee Jenkins confirmed the visit. The largest U.S. electronics retailer,

Best Buy, headquartered down the road from Minneapolis-based Target, has circulated a flier to lawmakers. It cites an analyst forecast that a 20 percent tax would wipe out the company’s projected annual net income of $1 billion and turn it into a $2 billion loss. The flier, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, argues that foreign Internet sellers like China’s Alibaba.com would be able to avoid the tax by making sales online and shipping to U.S. consumers directly, “undercutting U.S. businesses.” Company oicials have been handing out the flier to lawmakers and their staf on Capitol Hill, Best Buy spokesman Jef Shelman confirmed. Constellation Brands, which brews Corona and Modelo in Mexico, has been pushing lawmakers to exempt products like Mexican beer in any border tax “because it’s inherently a Mexican product,” CEO Rob Sands said on an earnings call. But if that effort fails, Constellation is prepared to buy more raw materials from the United States instead of Mexico, Sands said. Koch Industries, the second-largest private U.S. company according to Forbes, said in a statement a border tax would have a “devastating” impact on consumers. The company, owned by Republican donors Charles and David Koch, includes oil refining and manufacturing interests.

NEW YORK • A rare double shot of encouraging news on retirement savings: Workers are contributing more to their 401(k) accounts, and they’re taking out fewer loans from them. So says Fidelity, which looked at how 14.5 million savers are behaving in retirement plans that it administers. The combination means that the average 401(k) balance was $92,500 at the end of 2016, up nearly 5 percent from a year earlier. “Fewer people have pension plans now, and they’re more reliant on a 401(k), so I think people realize the importance of savings,” says Jeanne Thompson, senior vice president at Fidelity. Paychecks finally seem to be on the upswing for families outside the top earners, and the median household income climbed 5 percent in 2015 to $56,516. That, plus the strengthening job market, had workers feeling confident enough to set aside 8.4 percent of their paychecks during the last three months of 2016. It’s the highest quarterly level for 401(k) contributions since the spring of 2008, just before the worst of the financial crisis. Employers are also playing a role. About one in four workers last year raised their contribution rate for their 401(k) accounts, and only half of them did so on their own. The other half of the increases were part of automatic programs set up by employers. “Many employers are starting to realize, as they freeze their pension plans, they do want to set people up for success,” Thompson says. That has employers not only automatically enrolling their workers into the 401(k) plan but also discouraging loans from them. Only 21 percent of workers have a loan outstanding from their 401(k) accounts, the lowest level in seven years. Having the option to take out a 401(k) loan has some benefits. Employees are more likely to participate in plans that allow them and may even contribute more than they would have otherwise, researchers say. Taking a loan can be a risky move. Most loans get repaid, but defaults do occur when workers leave their jobs. Loans from 401(k) accounts can become due immediately when workers retire, get laid of or quit.

Mike Yeo was aware going into his Blues’ debut Thursday against Toronto that a coaching change in the NHL typically gives the team a jolt. But a day after taking over for Ken Hitchcock, Yeo wasn’t ta k i n g fo r BLUES 5 granted what t h e c rowd LEAFS 1 of 19,258 at Sco t t ra d e > 7 p.m. Saturday Center was vs. Pittsburgh, FSM expecting. “My point to the players is we just can’t expect it to happen, we have to make it happen,” Yeo said before the Blues took the ice against the Maple Leafs. Who knows how long this surge will last, but on the night that Bobby Plager’s No. 5 was retired to the rafters, the Blues fittingly finished with five goals in a 5-1 victory over Toronto. The Blues, who won for just the second time in their last seven games, will wrap up their three-game homestand Saturday against Pittsburgh. What a difference a day makes?

‘True Blue’ Plager has his night. C4

What the Cardinals did on Thursday was to anoint Carlos Martinez as their staff leader for the foreseeable future. They signed the flashy, 25-year-old righthander to a five-year, $51 million deal with a chance for him to earn a total of $35 million more if 2022 and 2023 club options are picked up. Martinez, to date, has never started a game before Game 5 of a regular season and longtime ace Adam Wainwright has started the last four season openers. That surely will change sometime in the near future with Martinez at the top of the staff, and he was asked whether he would want to start the first game of this season at See CARDINALS • Page C3

Carlos Martinez was with his entire family at a softball field in the Dominican Republic when he found out that the framework of his long-term contract had been set Sunday. With tears rolling down his cheeks, the young Cardinals ace walked over to his maternal grandmother Marta Martinez. He then put his powerful right arm over her shoulder and ushered her away from the rest of the family for a brief chat. Martinez, a young man who lost his mother when he was eight months old and never knew his father, wanted to tell the woman who raised him that they were now set for life. See ORTIZ • Page C3

DIGEST Briles texts at Baylor come out in court filing Ex-Baylor football coach Art Briles and other former athletic oicials tried to keep misconduct by football players under the radar, a new court filing alleged Thursday, a day after the disgraced coach abruptly dropped his libel suit against school oicials. The filing, which came in response to a lawsuit by a former assistant athletics director, includes damning texts between Briles and other athletics oicials as they dealt with multiple allegations against football players between 2011 and 2015. When a female student-athlete reported that a football player had brandished a gun at her, the response said, Briles texted an assistant coach: “what a fool — she reporting to authorities.” In another case, where a masseuse asked the team to discipline a player who reportedly exposed himself and asked for favors during a massage, the paperwork said Briles’ first response was, “What kind of discipline … She a stripper?” The filing also laid out the athletic department’s response to allegations of gang rape by football players, including when a student-athlete told her coach that five football players had raped her at an of-campus party. Then-Athletics Director Ian McCaw took a list of names to Briles, who said, “Those are some bad dudes. Why was she around those guys?” He also suggested the woman tell the police, according to the filing. Defense lawyers accuse Briles of creating an atmosphere that allowed wrongdoing by players — from underage drinking to sexual assault — to go unnoticed. The paperwork was filed on behalf of several Baylor oicials, including school regents and the interim university president, who were sued for libel by former assistant athletic director for football operations Colin Shillinglaw this week.

FRANKLY SPEAKING? A search is underway for replacement at KTRS for Kilcoyne, who works with co-host Randi Naughton of KTVI and sometimes Joe Holleman of the Post-Dispatch and STLtoday.com. One name surfacing is Frank Cusumano, sports director at KSDK (Channel 5) who also mans the weekday 10 a.m. to noon slot at KFNS. “Frank expressed an interest a few years ago about coming over,” Dorsey said. “I did reach out to him to take his temperature (about the pending opening) to see where he was.” Cusumano, however, is under contract at KFNS. “I’m very happy where I am,” he said. “It’s flattering to hear from them, but I really like working for (KFNS), and I really like the lineup we have put together.” The departing shows are McKernan creations. “We Are Live,” which often veers from sports and previously was on at night, never found traction in the two daytime slots it has occupied. And “The Writers Block” faced a financial issue that doesn’t impact other shows — the Post-Dispatch prohibits its employees from reading live ads on the radio, for ethical reasons, and therefore the trio could not sell some spots that others can. “It was a great time, working with two colleagues who are friends,” said Gould, who added that he enjoyed introducing relative Post-Dispatch newcomers Hochman and Frederickson to the radio audience and also “showing another side of me” that some listeners might not have known.”

THE BOTTOM LINE Meanwhile, McKernan said KFNS is buoyant. He points to the addition in November of an afternoon drive-time show headlined by Cam Janssen and T.J. Moe (which starting Feb. 20 will move up an hour, from 3 to 6 p.m.) and now the pending arrival of the program with Kilcoyne and Marlow. “Cam was about to go to (competitor WXOS, 101.1 FM),” McKernan said. “T.J. was working at 101. Martin has been at KTRS. All three chose to join us, so that’s a positive reflection on what we’re building. “When you look at where this radio station was a year ago and where it is now, that’s a credit to what Randy (Markel) is doing.”

Buck to treat Super Bowl ‘like a football game’

ASSOCIATED PRESS

“I think we have to treat this like a football game, not like we are refueling an F-18 in mid air,” Joe Buck says.

It’s not exactly old hat for Joe Buck, but the St. Louisan is set to step back into the Fox television booth Sunday to broadcast the Super Bowl for the fifth time. And he’s looking forward to doing the play-by-play of what will be one of the most-watched events he does in his career, though he says he isn’t preparing diferently than he would for a lesser game. “I would say it’s the same secret to calling an AFC championship game or a preseason game or whatever it may be,” he said at a news conference this week in Houston. “It’s a boring quote, and every player says it, but I think we have to treat this like a football game, not like we are refueling an F-18 in mid air. A guy is going to drop back and throw it, and I’m going to say that he threw it to whomever, and I’m going to say who made the tackle and how many yards were gained. Thankfully that’s it, because my mind’s not capable of a lot more than that, so I’m just going to treat it like every other game. Even though I know it’s not. “You just have to almost convince yourself and remind yourself that it’s just another game. While the tension is high and it’s a high-wire act and it’s a huge audience listening and watching, if you treat it like something it’s not, you’re dead in the water.”

The game (5:30 p.m., KTVI Channel 2 locally) will draw a lot of viewers who aren’t hard-core football fans, and Buck knows he has to balance appealing to those who know the teams inside and out with those with little — or no — such knowledge. “We could talk for three hours about Tom Brady, but we need to tell the Chris Hogan story, but Patriots fans have heard the story about Chris Hogan at Penn State playing lacrosse 5,000 times,” said Buck, who will be working with analyst Troy Aikman. “But maybe the Atlanta fans haven’t and maybe the casual fans haven’t. So you know you are constantly making these choices as the game goes along and you hope that while you get into some story a 90-yard touchdown doesn’t happen in the midst of it.”

THE HALL CALL? There is a significant amount of interest locally in this year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame voting, the results of which are to be announced Saturday night. Three people with significant St. Louis ties are among the finalists — former Rams quarterback Kurt Warner and receiver Issac Bruce, as well as former Cardinals coach Don Coryell. The Class of 2017 is to be announced during the “NFL Hon-

ors” program that is to be shown on Fox (Channel 2 locally) from 7-9 p.m. Also to be announced at that show are several award winners, including the league’s MVP, offensive and defensive rookies of the year and coach of the year for this season.

BYE-BYE BERMAN ESPN’s Chris Berman, 61, hosts “Sunday NFL Countdown” for the final time before the Super Bowl, as he is reducing his duties next season after 38 years at the network. He has been the face of ESPN’s NFL coverage, but will cut back to occasional contributions as well as having some other on-air duties for the company, “I’m like Yogi Berra. I’m leaving, but I’m staying,” he recently told the Houston Chronicle. “I’ll be exiting the big stages, but I’ll still be on some important stages, and I’ll be happy to do that. I carried the ball 30 times a game for a lot of years, and I was glad to do it, and I think we did it pretty well.” The Super Bowl “Sunday NFL Countdown” show begins at 10 a.m. He also will anchor ESPN’s postgame coverage.

Watson to be honored by USGA She will get Joe Day Award BY DAN O’NEILL St. Louis Post-dispatch

Being a teenage girl has challenges all its own. For Jayne Watson, it was more than that. Her father, Jean Merz, was a doctor who served in World War II, part of the 9th Cavalry Division at the Battle of the Bulge. He was holed up in a farmhouse at Bastogne, with frostbitten feet, saving life and seeing it lost in unimaginable ways. Scottie Merz, Jayne’s mother, had battles of her own. She was diagnosed with tuberculosis and entered a sanitarium. She would eventually require surgery and endure a long recovery process. When Jean returned home from the war, things weren’t the same. How could they be? The baggage both carried became too cumbersome and the marriage collapsed. Jayne was a teen girl, with challenges all its own, caught in the middle. She needed a haven, a place where the sun shined, the breeze blew gently and the world still seemed serene. She found it on a golf course. “It was a peaceful place and it

helped me a lot, just emotionally,” Watson said. “It was a really diicult time.” What Jayne Watson got from golf she has given back many fold. On Saturday, she will receive the Joe Day Award at the annual USGA meetings in Washington, D.C. Joe Day served as the USGA’s executive director from 1934 to 1969 before becoming the first commissioner of the PGA Tour. The honor will recognize more than three decades of volunteer service Watson has provided. It will acknowledge all the early

mornings, long hours and thankless days she has spent advancing the amateur game. But she insists it will have things backward. It is she who is indebted. “I owe golf so much,” she said. “I love doing this to pay back, to get people to recognize what it ofers. You know I’ve heard Rory McIlroy say, ‘What does grow the game mean?’ And I think to myself, ‘Oh young man, if you only knew.’” Watson was a fine player as a young girl, won some club championships, held her own in district competitions. But she has

“Mami, congratulations,” Martinez told his grandmother in Spanish. “We were able to secure our future. I’m happy. You can live your life in peace. We can represent the family.” It was his blistering fastball and golden arm that secured the five-year, $51 million contract, which is a record for a player in his first year of arbitration eligibility. But it was his maternal grandmother’s strength, sacrifice and work ethic that kept hunger at bay for Martinez as he was growing up. Martinez, 25, ascended to the head of his household long ago. As a child he roamed the streets of his hometown of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, in search of his father a few times. He approached men who were believed to be his father, finding nothing but dejection. He overcame that void because his maternal grandmother made sure he never felt alone. She showed him strength through a stoic personality that rarely betrayed any sign of sadness. Unlike a grandson who displays his emotions and vibrant personality often on the mound and in the dugout, Marta Martinez kept under control. Marta Martinez couldn’t disguise her overwhelming pride and joy, however, Sunday. “She’s one of those people that tries to be tough because she’s alone, but she had her own tears too,” Martinez said. “This is the best thing that has happened for my family, not only because I play ball, but also because they have shown me that I can represent them and I can help them with what’s necessary.” Martinez, who longed to be a major leaguer for as long as he can remember, had a rough start to his career after initially signing with the Red Sox as an amateur free agent on Feb. 6, 2009. Major League Baseball suspended him for a year after he failed an identity investigation because his grandmother had used another surname for him. That Boston contract was voided on March 1, 2009. He served his suspension and was cleared when it was found that he didn’t forge his birth date. He eventually signed with the Cardinals, pulling his grandmother out of poverty for good with a $1.5 million signing bonus on April 20, 2010. He has steadily risen to prominence since making his debut in the majors on May 3, 2013. He is 34-21 with a 3.32 ERA with one All-Star selection over four seasons. He proved to be the ace of the staf last year when he posted a 16-9 record and 3.04 ERA. He earned the league minimum of

$505,000 in 2014, then $520,000 in 2015 and $539,000 last season, so he hasn’t been hurting for cash. This new contract extension is truly life-altering, though, for a man who wants to make a difference in his native Dominican Republic and in St. Louis. With two option years, the contract could pay him $86 million for seven years. Now he can build the compound that he has talked about constantly with his partner of eight years, Laura Rivas, and their two young sons, Kevin, 4, and Kenn, 2. “You have to make goals, focus on the family, calm down a bit and move forward,” Rivas said. “We have always talked at night about what we’ll do tomorrow and what’s coming in the future. “He’s always said he wanted to build his own house and design it his way with a gym and a theater.” Martinez and Rivas have been planning that new house for two years. They already have the land for the home in Puerto Plata. On Sunday, Martinez told Rivas that they can turn their focus to building their dream home. “A lot of people always ask, ‘Well, why are you doing it?’” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. “I think the simple answer is when you look at someone at his age entering this year at 25, based on his past performance, based on his future projections, and more importantly based on what he stands for, he’s a special young man.” Mozeliak notes that Martinez is maturing. He also believes Martinez realizes the commitment he must make to the Cardinals, St. Louis and his family. Martinez is proud to be the head of his family. He also longs to lead the Cardinals’ rotation and perhaps earn the Opening Day start against the Cubs this year. “I always dreamed of this day for my family to build my own home,” he said. “Ever since I was a kid, I liked to play ball and I liked to be somebody who would be independent in the future. Thank God I have that opportunity now. This is what I earned. I thank the Cardinals for supporting me.” Martinez’s grandmother taught him the importance of caring for family. He showed up to his press conference in a sharp gray suit and a red bow tie. His two sons also donned matching bow ties. Marta Martinez’s grandson hasn’t forgotten her sacrifices. This contract should help him care for her and the next generation. As he told her, they made it. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

left an indelible imprint as a facilitator. She became involved with the USGA in 1987, as the country was making an awkward transition to the golf association’s new “slope” method of rating golf courses. Watson became an expert. Her knowledge and passion earned her a seat on the first USGA Course Rating Committee, and she has rated just about every pristine lawn and patchy goat track there is in the Missouri-Illinois region. She is a past president and one of six honorary lifetime members of the Missouri Women’s Golf Association. She has contributed to the St. Louis District Golf and the Metropolitan Amateur Golf associations, as well, worked numerous USGA championships and qualifiers and sits on the USGA Senior Women’s Championship Committee. Along the way, she has helped raise money toward college scholarships for female players in the area and fostered immeasurable support and goodwill. “Jayne has devoted an incredible amount of time and energy as an advocate for golf both nationally and in her native St. Louis community,” said Diana Murphy, USGA president. “She has inspired everyone who has had the pleasure of working with her in St. Louis and on various USGA

committees.” In short, that distraught teen girl has come a long way. In 1956, she married the love of her life, Andy Watson — a St. Joseph’s girl and a Chaminade guy. Andy also loved golf but not in a competitive way. He loved it for getting him away from daunting distractions. He was the perfect foil to Jayne’s passion for propriety. He loved it, like he loved Jayne, for all the right reasons. “He was a funny golfer,” Watson recalled. “He just liked to have a good time. He could drive a ball to the right three fairways. Then he’d put the next shot in the fairway, the next one on the green and make the putt. Then he might make a 15 on the next hole. “We always maintained that the golden rule for a happy marriage was, ‘You play the game by your rules, and I’ll play the game by mine.’ ” Andy Watson died in June 1999, a short while before his beloved Rams won a Super Bowl. When Jayne Watson is honored Saturday, her children Molly, Patti and David will be there, with their families. Her dear friend and St. Joe classmate Ann Wilkerson will be there. And you have to think Andy will be there, as he is when the sun shines, the breeze blows gentle and the world still seems serene.

Martinez gets long-term deal CARDINALS • FROM C1

home against the World Series champion Chicago Cubs. Most of the questions he was asked during a Busch Stadium press conference he answered in Spanish with translator Alexandra Noboa following up in English. Martinez smiled and handled this one himself. “I respect (Wainwright). But I want (to start the first game),” Martinez said. “Great answer,” said general manager John Mozeliak. “He’s a talented guy. We’re not sitting here today doing this kind of contract if he’s not.” While a bit of a maverick before, Martinez is morphing into a solid-citizen Cardinal. For his press conference, he was replete with a new red bow tie — his young sons, Kenny and Kevin, had similar bow ties — and Mozeliak, who has sported the look in the past, was a little jealous. “I was honored that he made that choice today,” said Mozeliak. “I actually thought about wearing one myself but I thought that might look a little corny if we were both up here (wearing bow ties).” After a 2014 X-rated Twitter episode and flipping of the Colorado dugout the next year during a high-spirited outing, Martinez has become more grounded. He is active in charity work in his native Dominican Republic and St. Louis, where he sponsors a bowling outing benefiting the underprivileged. He also enjoys addressing Latin-speaking youths at schools. “He’s growing up. He’s maturing,” said Mozeliak. “He understands the commitment he has to make — not only to the Cardinals’ baseball team and the city of St. Louis but also his family. “When I think about the timing of this (contract extension) ... it was now.” Mozeliak and Brian Mejia, Martinez’s agent, brought up the names of such veteran Cardinals as Yadier Molina, Wainwright and Jhonny Peralta being mentors to Martinez. And Mozeliak said, “I hope at some point I’m saying Carlos Martinez is a mentor to some of our young players.” Mejia, whose hometown of Puerto Plata, D.R., is the same as Martinez, has been Martinez’s agent for five years and has known him for six. “I knew (in) his head he was capable of being a leader,” said Mejia. “He just needed the guidance and understanding how to get there — how to manage his onfield and of-field persona. Little by little, every year, he’s gotten more mature in every aspect.” Martinez, seeking $4.25 million, and the Cardinals, ofering $3.9 million, were headed for a salary arbitration hearing next week, but the multi-year possibility was never far from the table, even as Mejia tried to negotiate by telephone with Mozeliak from a vessel during the recent Cardinals’ cruise on which Martinez also was a passenger. “Ship to shore is not easy,” said Mozeliak. “We had our obstacles but on Monday we were able to bring this to a head. Calling Martinez an “elite” pitcher and a “potential No. 1,” Mozeliak said, “When

you look at our future now, knowing Carlos Martinez can anchor this rotation for the next five years, it feels and sounds pretty good to me.” Martinez went 16-9 with a 3.04 earned run average last season after he was 14-7 and 3.01 in his first year as a starter in 2015. Martinez has not spent as much time as he used to in the Dominican Republic the last two of-seasons. He was asked to rehab his arm and train last of-season in Jupiter, Fla. The Cardinals’ front office probably also feels better about having him in the states in light of the recent auto tragedies in the Dominican Republic involving teammate and close friend Oscar Taveras and, last month, of Kansas City’s Yordano Ventura. Martinez said of the recent Ventura death, “The fact that it was a Dominican player, I felt like it was a brother and that really hurt me. But I prefer not to talk about it.” He did talk, however, about the responsibility players have. “I think it’s critical to be not only mature on the field but of the field as well,” Martinez said through the translator. Mozeliak, understanding both sides of the issue, said, “(The Dominican Republic) is their home. They want to be engaged. To tell them that going back there is too much risk ... I don’t think that’s fair. But what you hope is that they start to help manage their own risk. “My hope is that with somebody like Carlos, especially since we have this longterm commitment, that he does spend time here in the States. But I’m not going to tell him not to go home because he loves his home.” Martinez’s spring work with the Cardinals will be interrupted by an absence of anywhere from a week to three weeks as he assumes a role at the top of the Dominican rotation for the World Baseball Classic. “I think there’s risk,” Mozeliak said. “MLB and the WBC have done an outstanding job to manage usage. From a starting pitcher’s standpoint, the protections (pitch counts) that are in play are great. My fear always is the bullpen usage. I’m going to use Mitchell Boggs (in 2013) as an example. Sometimes, there is lack of usage for three weeks.” Boggs, an excellent setup man for the Cardinals in 2012, returned from pitching little for the U.S. team and suddenly was thrust into the closer’s role when Jason Motte was hurt and Boggs was never the same. Young Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes might wind up in the Dominican bullpen this year. “Whoever goes onto the WBC, I want to see play,” said Mozeliak. Martinez will be paid $4.5 million this year, $1 million of it in a signing bonus, and then $11.5 million for each of the final four seasons. The 2022 option is for $17 million and the 2023 option for $18 million. “It’s something I deserve,” said Martinez. “A five-year contract is going to be long enough to prove what I’m capable of.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

Blues honor Bob Plager His No. 5 sweater hangs next to Barclay’s No. 8 BY TOM TIMMERMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

For a man best known for making people laugh, Blues legend Bob Plager was fighting back tears Thursday night. Plager had his number 5 retired by the Blues, joining six other numbers in the rafters of Scottrade Center, but the way the team did it spoke to one of the things most important to Plager. As his number was being raised up alongside the other numbers, it stopped halfway up. The number 8 of Plager’s brother, Barclay, was lowered to meet it and the numbers then completed the journey to the top together. As Plager stood on a mat at the blue line, with his family and Barclay’s, he wiped away tears as the banners went skyward. “Seeing the No. 8 coming down, I looked at my family,” Plager said later. “I think we all had tears in our eyes.” It was the end of a 50-year journey for Plager, who has been with the franchise since the league’s expansion draft and has served in almost every possible role with the franchise over the years. While Plager wasn’t the greatest NHL player — “I got to see all four of my goals again,” he quipped after a video retrospective on his career (he actually had 20) — he more than made up for it with his contributions to the franchise. Team owner Tom Stillman called him “the ultimate Blue,” and Bernie Federko, whose number has also been retired, called him a “true Blue who personifies what the Note really means.” Most of the players who have had their numbers retired by the Blues were on hand or represented by relatives: Al MacInnis (No. 2), Brett Hull (No. 16) and Federko (No. 24) all of whom still work with the Blues, were present, along with the son of Bob Gassoff (No. 3, who died in an accident in 1977) and the family of Barclay (who died of cancer in 1988). The only one not represented was Brian Sutter (No. 11), who sent a recorded congratulations. Blues players watched from their bench, wearing jer-

seys with No. 5 and Plager on the back. Plager spoke for 25 minutes and said that was far less emotional for him than listening to others talk about him. Despite the length of his talk, he admitted he still had left out many people he wanted to thank. Among those he gave special recognition to were two players who wore No. 5 after he did, Rob Ramage and Barret Jackman. “No. 5 is going into the rafters with Plager on it,” he said, “but I’ll be thinking about Rob Ramage and Barret Jackman.” “We’re excited to watch your No. 5 go into the rafters,” Jackman, the last Blue to wear No. 5, said. “Thank you for showing me what it means to be a true Blue.” Plager acknowledged each of his new comrades and saved his brother for last. “You have your heroes, and my brother Barclay was my hero,” Plager said. “I’m here because of my brother. I don’t think I’m as good as him. He was loved by his teammates and feared by everybody else. He never took a night of. He didn’t play for the name on his back, it was the crest on the front. Every time I walk into this building, I look up and talk to my brother Barclay. Now I get to

hang out with him.” And now his number will be next to his brother’s. “It’s great,” he said during the first intermission. “I don’t think Barc and I have gotten into it yet. Some night you might come in here and one of them will be gone, and whoever’s right will still be sitting there. It’s great to be up there. It’s what I said and I meant it: I come in and talk to Barc. Some nights the game isn’t too good, and I look up and go, ‘You don’t like this, do you?’ Now I can whisper.”

accused the club of being made up of “independent contractors,” in essence saying some were more interested in their individual success than team success. Interesting, during Plager’s rousing remarks during the pregame ceremony, he mentioned that his carer was shaped by playing for the Blue Note crest on the front of the sweater and not the name on the back. The players were standing a mere 50 feet away and seemed to soak up the message, as they played a team game that has been seen only on rare occasions this season. The Blues posted five goals on 31 shots, and they allowed just one goal, marking only the second time in their last six games that they’ve given up fewer than five. Paul Stastny had two of the goals, while Vladimir Tarasenko, Alexander Steen and Colton Parayko accounted for one each, and Jake Allen turned in 26 saves for the win, his first since the Winter Classic. By virtue of the victory, the Blues grabbed back the wildcard spot they had relinquished Wednesday night when Calgary

beat Minnesota. They are tied with Calgary with 55 points and have played two fewer games than the Flames. As expected with Wednesday’s coaching change, the Blues had some jump early Thursday. Parayko took a puck coast to coast before being turned away at the crease by Toronto goalie Frederik Andersen. Later in the period, a heads-up pass from Steen sprung David Perron on a breakaway, but again Anderson came up with the save. Allen was sharp, too, but couldn’t close his legs on a shot by the Maple Leafs’ Mitch Marner, whose 13th goal of the year gave the visitors a 1-0 lead with 5:36 remaining in the first period. The Blues, though, bounced back with Steen’s 10th goal of the season. His shot from the top of the circle went through the legs of not one, not two, but three Toronto players, including Andersen, on the way to the back of the net. Steen’s sixth goal in his last nine games tied the score at 1-1 with 2:02 left in the first period. The Blues broke the game open with three goals in the second period, including a pair 35 seconds apart. Stastny’s 13th of the season

gave the team a 2-1 lead just 6:27 into the period. A strong forecheck from Perron allowed Steen to pass a puck in front; that deflected off Toronto’s Auston Matthews to Stastny for an uncontested look. Tarasenko quickly followed with his 23rd of the season for a 3-1 lead just 7:02 into the period. He scored on his patented cut to center ice, where he stopped and sent a wrist shot flying by Andersen’s glove. The Blues had three goals on 15 shots at that point and added another on Paryako’s fourth goal of the season, on the power play. It was a sizzler from 29 feet for a 4-1 lead with 8:58 left in the second period. They carried that lead into the third period, a frame in which Stastny added his second goal of the game. Parayko let go of a slap shot from the point, and Stastny lunged to punch in the rebound for his 14th of the season. It was the most offense from the Blues since a 6-3 win over Philadelphia on Dec. 28. Yeo became only the second Blues coach in the last seven to record a victory in their debut.

Blues honor Bob Plager His No. 5 sweater hangs next to Barclay’s No. 8 BY TOM TIMMERMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

For a man best known for making people laugh, Blues legend Bob Plager was fighting back tears Thursday night. Plager had his number 5 retired by the Blues, joining six other numbers in the rafters of Scottrade Center, but the way the team did it spoke to one of the things most important to Plager. As his number was being raised up alongside the other numbers, it stopped halfway up. The number 8 of Plager’s brother, Barclay, was lowered to meet it and the numbers then completed the journey to the top together. As Plager stood on a mat at the blue line, with his family and Barclay’s, he wiped away tears as the banners went skyward. “Seeing the No. 8 coming down, I looked at my family,” Plager said later. “I think we all had tears in our eyes.” It was the end of a 50-year journey for Plager, who has been with the franchise since the league’s expansion draft and has served in almost every possible role with the franchise over the years. While Plager wasn’t the greatest NHL player — “I got to see all four of my goals again,” he quipped after a video retrospective on his career (he actually had 20) — he more than made up for it with his contributions to the franchise. Team owner Tom Stillman called him “the ultimate Blue,” and Bernie Federko, whose number has also been retired, called him a “true Blue who personifies what the Note really means.” Most of the players who have had their numbers retired by the Blues were on hand or represented by relatives: Al MacInnis (No. 2), Brett Hull (No. 16) and Federko (No. 24) all of whom still work with the Blues, were present, along with the son of Bob Gassoff (No. 3, who died in an accident in 1977) and the family of Barclay (who died of cancer in 1988). The only one not represented was Brian Sutter (No. 11),

Blues legend Bob Plager watches a video tribute to his career as his No. 5 is retired in a ceremony prior to Thursday’s game.

who sent a recorded congratulations. Blues players watched from their bench, wearing jerseys with No. 5 and Plager on the back. Plager spoke for 25 minutes and said that was far less emotional for him than listening to others talk about him. Despite the length of his talk, he admitted he still had left out many people he wanted to thank. Among those he gave special recognition to were two players who wore No. 5 after he did, Rob Ramage and Barret Jackman. “No. 5 is going into the rafters with Plager on it,” he said, “but I’ll be thinking about Rob Ramage and Barret Jackman.” “We’re excited to watch your No. 5 go into the rafters,” Jackman, the last Blue to wear No. 5, said. “Thank you for showing me what it means to be a true Blue.” Plager acknowledged each of his new comrades and saved his brother for last. “You have your heroes, and my brother Barclay was my hero,” Plager said. “I’m here because of my brother. I don’t think I’m as good as him. He was loved by his teammates and feared by everybody else. He never took a night of. He didn’t play for the name on his back, it was the crest on the front. Every time I walk into this building, I look up and talk to

my brother Barclay. Now I get to hang out with him.” And now his number will be next to his brother’s. “It’s great,” he said during the first intermission. “I don’t think Barc and I have gotten into it yet. Some night you might come in here and one of them will be gone, and whoever’s right will still be sitting there. It’s great to be up there. It’s what I said and I meant it: I come in and talk to Barc. Some nights the game isn’t too good, and I look up and go, ‘You don’t like this, do you?’ Now I can whisper.”

and Jake Allen turned in 26 saves for the win, his first since the Winter Classic. “I felt good,” Allen said. “It’s another step for me. I’ve still got more to give. Tuesday was a step. Today was another step, tomorrow when I get back on the ice again it’s another step there.” “I can’t say why,” Yeo said, “but I felt real confident that Jake was going to have a real strong game today. I kind of talked to him before the game and he just seemed real loose and ready to go. I thought he was outstanding. I really thought that he was outstanding.” Just 24 hours earlier, Blues general manager Doug Armstrong accused the club of being made up of “independent contractors,” in essence saying some were more interested in their individual success than team success. Interesting, during Plager’s rousing remarks during the pregame ceremony, he mentioned that his career was shaped by playing for the Blue Note crest on the front of the sweater and not the name on the back. The players were standing a mere 50 feet away and seemed to soak up the message. “Obviously we never want to be individuals, we want to become a team and play for the crest because at the end of the day that’s all that we’re wearing together,” Parayko said. Actually, Plager referenced it more than once. “I like that he said it twice in case somebody didn’t hear it the first time,” Yeo said. “There’s a guy who has given his heart and soul to the organization for 50 years. I’m glad that all of our guys got to be out there for it and to witness that and to hear those words. I know it’s something that we’ve all heard before, but when a guy like Bobby is up there and speaks with the passion that he does about what it means to be a Blue, that was special and I think that had an effect on our group for sure.” As expected with Wednesday’s coaching change, the Blues had some jump early Thursday. Allen kept the club in the game early, but couldn’t keep the Maple Leafs of the board the entire first period. Mitch Marner scored his 13th goal of the year to give Toronto a 1-0 lead with 5:36 remaining in the first period. The Blues, though, bounced

Meeting Friday on Olympics • Two people familiar with the gathering say key decisionmakers are meeting Friday regarding the NHL’s participation

in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. IOC President Thomas Bach, IIHF President Rene Fasel, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players Association Executive Director Don Fehr will gather to discuss the 2018 Games for the first time. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said last weekend owners are leaning against playing in a sixth straight Olympics. Wild sign goalie • Minnesota signed goalie Alex Stalock to a two-year contract extension, allowing the club to protect All-Star Devan Dubnyk in the upcoming expansion draft. The Wild also called up forward Alex Tuch from the AHL.

back with Steen’s 10th goal of the season. Steen’s sixth goal in his last nine games tied the score at 1-1 with 2:02 left in the first period. With a game that started close to 8:30, it was getting late by the second period. “We had to keep ourselves up,” Stastny said. “We’re not 1819 like some of the guys on our team, so some of us had to keep that energy within ourselves.” The Blues stayed awake, breaking the game open with three goals in the second period, including a pair 35 seconds apart. Stastny’s 13th of the season gave the team a 2-1 lead just 6:27 into the period. Tarasenko quickly followed with his 23rd of the season for a 3-1 lead just 7:02 into the

period. The Blues had three goals on 15 shots at that point and added another on Parayko’s fourth goal of the season, on the power play, for a 4-1 lead with 8:58 left in the second period. But they wanted five for No. 5. “Then I think it because it’s a jersey retirement night, those come around once every 10 years if a franchise is lucky, somewhere in the back of your mind you’re thinking if you get the win, it would be cool to try to get five goals, something that the Plager family will always remember,” Stastny said. It was Stastny who got it, his second of the game, in the third period for his 14th of the season. They got Plager his goal and Yeo the victory. “I think a new coach, I think we had a new sense of urgency, a new life kicked into us,” Stastny said. “We wanted to just compete out there. If we would’ve lost, I think we just wanted to have a better attitude than we’ve had in the past. But we wanted to get that win under ‘Yeosie.’” It’s tradition that players give the coach a keepsake puck after his first win and the Blues kept with that tradition. “I got a puck, yes, and the guys also criticized my tie,” Yeo said. “I thought it was pretty good, but apparently it’s not.” Jeremy Rutherford @jprutherford on Twitter jrutherford@post-dispatch.com

Florida guard KeVaughn Allen dribbles past Missouri guard K.J. Walton during the Gators’ win Thursday.

BY JORDAN MCPHERSON Special to the Post-dispatch

GAINESVILLE, FLA. • With Missouri trailing Florida by more than 25 points midway through the first half, Reed Nikko stole the ball from Florida’s Kasey Hill and passed ahead to Jordan Geist. The sophomore guard raced to the basket with no one in his path and went up to make what should have been a surefire layup. In and out. Two offensive rebounds from K.J. Walton and two missed jump shots later, Missouri turned the ball over. No points. It was that kind of night for the Tigers, who fell 93-54 to the No. 24 Gators on Thursday at UF’s Exactech Arena. It’s Missouri’s program-high-tying 13th straight loss and its 31st straight defeat in true road games, a mark dating back to the 2013-14 season. The 39-point loss is the seventh largest margin of defeat in program history. “(Florida) came out and completely overmatched us, attacked us, got every rebound, made every shot,” said third-year Tigers coach Kim Anderson, whose team failed to score 60 points for the third time in the past five games and has lost five of its past six games by at least 10 points. “It was kind of like getting hit by a train.” At the halfway point in the Southeastern Conference season, Missouri (5-16, 0-9 SEC) is still searching for its first conference victory and could become the first SEC team to go winless in the conference since Georgia Tech in the 1953-1954 season. The Tigers shot 30.2 percent from the field – its second-lowest mark of the year and lowest during the current losing stretch. Missouri made just three of its first 22 shots to allow Florida to

jump to an early 38-9 advantage and didn’t record a rebound in the first six minutes of the game. Jump shots failed to hit the backboard. Seven shots were blocked. “I thought we were prepared,” Anderson said. “Obviously we weren’t. … We didn’t even jump on the tip. I should have known.” Sophomore Terrance Phillips led Missouri with 14 points off the bench and Walton added 10 points, but the Gators (17-5, 7-2 SEC) exposed Missouri’s defense in almost every way possible.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP Arizona comes to life for 15th straight win Allonzo Trier scored 18 points and No. 5 Arizona roared to life in the second half to defeat host Oregon State 71-54 on Thursday night. Dusan Ristic had 10 points and six rebounds for the Wildcats (21-2, 10-0), who have won 15 straight games. Stephen Thompson Jr. had 16 points and ive steals and Drew Eubanks added 12 points for the Beavers (4-19, 0-10), who led 29-27 at halftime. Arizona went on a 23-2 run in the second half to take a 55-36 lead with 8:23 remaining. The Wildcats held the Beavers scoreless for nearly six minutes during the surge. Arizona led by eight points early, but Oregon State battled back and went ahead 23-21 after a 3-pointer by Thompson with 4:53 left in the irst half. Oregon State shot 50 percent in the irst half, but was limited to 34.6 percent in the second half. Arizona shot 53.8 percent in the second half and outrebounded the Beavers 39-26 for the game.

against Pittsburgh after back surgery kept him out for four weeks. His return falls in line with the four-week timeline the school projected when his leave of absence was announced on Jan. 2. Krzyzewski revealed on the SiriusXM radio show that he’s been attending parts of Duke’s practices for the past week and a half, slipping into the locker room to watch on closed-circuit television when fatigue would set in. He says his assistants would visit his house after every practice to discuss and evaluate what happened on the court. “Basically, though, I’ve been doing stuf every day, really, with our program,” Krzyzewski said. “Not as much with the physical nature, but with preparation and some of the things that you just have to do in running a big-time program.” Ex-Kentucky player dies • Bobby Watson, a key player on Kentucky’s 1951 NCAA championship team who also coached Owensboro High School to two state titles, has died. He was 86. Watson was a Wildcats walk-on in 1949 and earned a scholarship under coach Adolph Rupp. The guard averaged 10.4 points a game during the 1951-52 season to help Kentucky win its third championship.

and 10 assists. Three additional UF players had double-digit scoring eforts, and Florida shot 45.5 percent from the field overall to mark the eighth time since the losing streak began on Dec. 10 that the Tigers allowed an opponent to make more than 45 percent of its shots. Missouri, which entered the game as the second-highest rebounding team in the conference, lost the battle on the boards 5632 overall and 18-11 on the ofensive glass. The Tigers turned the ball over 13 times which led to 20 Florida points. “They made shots and we just wouldn’t stop the ball in transition,” Phillips said. “... We just kind of played down the entire game.” Florida led 48-20 at halftime and never stopped pushing, extending its lead to as much as 43 in the second half. UF began putting most of its reserve players into the game with more than 11 minutes left. “It’s tough to simulate what the actual game is going to be like going against the scout team. We saw it tonight,” Walton said. “They were really aggressive and we didn’t look like we knew what we were doing out there.” Missouri will next face Arkansas at home on Saturday. The Razorbacks started the Tigers’ current slide in conference play last year and won the earlier game in the series this season 92-73 in Fayetteville. Even though it’s a quick turnaround, Anderson said it might be a blessing in disguise considering how his team performed. “We’re gonna burn the film (of this game) because we don’t have time,” Anderson said. “It won’t be burned in my house. I’ll see it, but we have to turn around and play on Saturday.”

Tigers no match for Gators Mizzou matches longest losing streak with 93-54 defeat

BY JORDAN MCPHERSON Special to the Post-dispatch

GAINESVILLE, FLA. • With Missouri trailing Florida by more than 25 points midway through the first half, Reed Nikko stole the ball from Florida’s Kasey Hill and passed ahead to Jordan Geist. The sophomore guard raced to the basket with no one in his path and went up to make what should have been a surefire layup. In and out. Two offensive rebounds from K.J. Walton and two missed jump shots later, Missouri turned the ball over. No points. It was that kind of night for the Tigers, who fell 93-54 to the No. 24 Gators on Thursday at UF’s Exactech Arena. It’s Missouri’s program-high-tying 13th straight loss and its 31st straight defeat in true road games, a mark dating back to the 2013-14 season. The 39-point loss is the seventh largest margin of defeat in program history. “(Florida) came out and completely overmatched us, attacked us, got every rebound, made every shot,” said third-year Tigers coach Kim Anderson, whose team failed to score 60 points for the third time in the past five games and has lost five of its past six games by at least 10 points. “It was kind of like getting hit by a train.” At the halfway point in the Southeastern Conference season, Missouri (5-16, 0-9 SEC) is still searching for its first conference victory and could become the first SEC team to go winless in the conference since Georgia Tech in the 1953-1954 season. The Tigers shot 30.2 percent from the field – its second-lowest mark of the year and lowest during the current losing stretch. Missouri made just three of its first 22 shots to allow Florida to

jump to an early 38-9 advantage and didn’t record a rebound in the first six minutes of the game. Jump shots failed to hit the backboard. Seven shots were blocked. “I thought we were prepared,” Anderson said. “Obviously we weren’t. … We didn’t even jump on the tip. I should have known.” Sophomore Terrance Phillips led Missouri with 14 points off the bench and Walton added 10 points, but the Gators (17-5, 7-2 SEC) exposed Missouri’s defense in almost every way possible.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP Arizona comes to life for 15th straight win Allonzo Trier scored 18 points and No. 5 Arizona roared to life in the second half to defeat host Oregon State 71-54 on Thursday night. Dusan Ristic had 10 points and six rebounds for the Wildcats (21-2, 10-0), who have won 15 straight games. Stephen Thompson Jr. had 16 points and ive steals and Drew Eubanks added 12 points for the Beavers (4-19, 0-10), who led 29-27 at halftime. Arizona went on a 23-2 run in the second half to take a 55-36 lead with 8:23 remaining. The Wildcats held the Beavers scoreless for nearly six minutes during the surge. Arizona led by eight points early, but Oregon State battled back and went ahead 23-21 after a 3-pointer by Thompson with 4:53 left in the irst half. Oregon State shot 50 percent in the irst half, but was limited to 34.6 percent in the second half. Arizona shot 53.8 percent in the second half and outrebounded the Beavers 39-26 for the game. Krzyzewski to return • Mike Krzyzewski is returning this weekend to coach his Duke Blue Devils. The Hall of Fame coach announced Thursday night on his weekly radio show that he will make his return Saturday

against Pittsburgh after back surgery kept him out for four weeks. His return falls in line with the four-week timeline the school projected when his leave of absence was announced on Jan. 2. Krzyzewski revealed on the SiriusXM radio show that he’s been attending parts of Duke’s practices for the past week and a half, slipping into the locker room to watch on closed-circuit television when fatigue would set in. He says his assistants would visit his house after every practice to discuss and evaluate what happened on the court. “Basically, though, I’ve been doing stuf every day, really, with our program,” Krzyzewski said. “Not as much with the physical nature, but with preparation and some of the things that you just have to do in running a big-time program.” Ex-Kentucky player dies • Bobby Watson, a key player on Kentucky’s 1951 NCAA championship team who also coached Owensboro High School to two state titles, has died. He was 86. Watson was a Wildcats walk-on in 1949 and earned a scholarship under coach Adolph Rupp. The guard averaged 10.4 points a game during the 1951-52 season to help Kentucky win its third championship.

and 10 assists. Three additional UF players had double-digit scoring eforts, and Florida shot 45.5 percent from the field overall to mark the eighth time since the losing streak began on Dec. 10 that the Tigers allowed an opponent to make more than 45 percent of its shots. Missouri, which entered the game as the second-highest rebounding team in the conference, lost the battle on the boards 5632 overall and 18-11 on the ofensive glass. The Tigers turned the ball over 13 times which led to 20 Florida points. “They made shots and we just wouldn’t stop the ball in transition,” Phillips said. “... We just kind of played down the entire game.” Florida led 48-20 at halftime and never stopped pushing, extending its lead to as much as 43 in the second half. UF began putting most of its reserve players into the game with more than 11 minutes left. “It’s tough to simulate what the actual game is going to be like going against the scout team. We saw it tonight,” Walton said. “They were really aggressive and we didn’t look like we knew what we were doing out there.” Missouri will next face Arkansas at home on Saturday. The Razorbacks started the Tigers’ current slide in conference play last year and won the earlier game in the series this season 92-73 in Fayetteville. Even though it’s a quick turnaround, Anderson said it might be a blessing in disguise considering how his team performed. “We’re gonna burn the film (of this game) because we don’t have time,” Anderson said. “It won’t be burned in my house. I’ll see it, but we have to turn around and play on Saturday.”

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. • Matt Kuchar

eagled the par-5 13th and added two late birdies and a big par save on the rowdy par-3 16th hole Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Coming off a seven-week break, Kuchar shot a 7-under 64 in perfect afternoon conditions at TPC Scottsdale for a one-stroke lead over defending champion Hideki Matsuyama and Brendan Steele. “I was able to be home, able to be dad,” Kuchar said about the layoff. “The boys got to play basketball. ... Got to go to the games and it was great fun for me. My boys are 9 and 7. Getting into golf. In the afternoon, we’d sneak out and play a few holes.” The crowd was estimated at 103,420 on the stadium layout. “Someone told me it was 5 million,” Kuchar joked. “So many people out here. It’s a good buzz. It’s a good vibe.” He made a 25-foot eagle putt on 13. “Chased a 3-wood up on the corner of the green, and it was a pretty straightforward 25-footer,” Kuchar said. “That was a lucky place to be on that hole. Some of these pins were hard to get at. That was one that was hard to get at.” The seven-time PGA Tour winner ran in a 6-footer for birdie on the par-5 15th. He got up-and-down for par from the left bunker on the triple-deck stadium 16th, making a 12-foot putt, and chipped to inches from the front fringe on the short par-4 17th to set up his final birdie in the bogey-free round. Matsuyama had a bogey-free round in the morning. Last year, he beat Rickie Fowler in a playof. “I wish I knew why I play well here,” Matsuyama said through a translator. “I did hit the ball very well today, hit a lot of greens, a lot of good shots.” He won four times worldwide late last year, taking the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in China, two events in Japan and Tiger Woods’ unoicial Hero World Challenge in December. Steele holed out from 194 yards for eagle on the par-4 14th. John Peterson, Robert Garrigus, Scott Brown, Byeong Hun An and Chris Kirk shot 66. Fowler, 2015 winner Brooks Koepka, two-time champion J.B. Holmes, Steve Stricker, Martin Laird, Webb Simpson, Graham DeLaet and Alex Cejka were at 67. Sung Kang also was 4 under on the final hole when play was suspended because of darkness. Fowler was three strokes better than playing partners Jordan Spieth and John Rahm, the former Arizona State player who won Sunday at Torrey Pines for his first PGA Tour victory. Phil Mickelson opened with a 68 to top playing partners Justin Thomas (69) and Adam Hadwin (71).

GOLF ROUNDUP Garcia grabs lead in Dubai; Woods opens event with 77 Sergio Garcia took advantage of better playing conditions in the morning and carded a 7-under-par 65 for a one-shot lead to open the Dubai Desert Classic on Thursday. Playing ahead of Tiger Woods, who could not make any headway and posted a 5-over 77, Garcia made six birdies and an eagle before inally dropping a shot on the eighth hole, his 17th. Chile’s Felipe Aguilar and South Africa’s George Coetzee were tied on 66, and the resurgent Ian Poulter led a group of four players with 67. Henrik Stenson, the highest-ranked player in the ield at No. 4, posted a bogey-free 68. Danny Willett started his title defense with a 71. Six players didn’t inish because of poor light. None were threatening the leaders. Woods missed fairways and greens, and he needed 33 putts in his second comeback event. “I left probably about 16 putts short. I just couldn’t get the speed of these things,” he said. Only seven players were below Woods in the ield of 132. Two-time champion Stephen Gallacher of Scotland had a 72 in the windy afternoon conditions. Associated Press

Shown signing autographs in training camp last July, New England’s Matthew Slater is a six-time Pro Bowl selection as a special-teamer.

Hopes his idol can join father in the Hall of Fame BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

HOUSTON • Matthew Slater has a hero,

and his name is Isaac Bruce. Slater, the special teams whiz for the New England Patriots, is the son of Hall of Fame ofensive tackle Jackie Slater. He got to know Bruce, and looked up to him, starting in 1994 which was Bruce’s rookie season in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams. “I met Isaac a number of times with my dad,” Slater said Thursday. “When the team moved (to St. Louis) I was in the fifth grade, so I was old enough to remember.” Jackie Slater, bothered by an elbow injury, played only one series of one game in 1995, the inaugural season for the team in St. Louis. That appearance meant Slater, known as the Eternal Ram, had played in his 20th NFL season. He was carried off the field following that contest against Carolina, the first game played in what was then the Trans World Dome. Matthew Slater remembers it well. He was at that game, and obviously proud of his father. But he always had his eyes fixed on Bruce, the young, skinny Rams receiver. “The thing about Isaac is the man that he is,” Slater said. “The way that he carries

himself. The Rev. Bruce as they called him. He and I shared our faith in God, which is very important to us.” The young Slater watched Bruce intently, to see how he carried himself. He watched what he did after a catch. And listened to what he’d say after a game. “He was always the classiest guy. Always carried himself like a true gentleman,” Slater said. “I really appreciated having a guy to look to like Isaac Bruce.” Following retirement, Jackie Slater made frequent trips to Rams Park in Earth City, and Matthew would tag along. Years later, Slater was drafted by the New England Patriots as a wide receiver out of UCLA. As a rookie in 2008, the Patriots played the 49ers in San Francisco and Slater found himself on the same playing field with his idol. Bruce spent his final two seasons, 2008 and 2009, with the 49ers after his release by the Rams. Slater has carved out quite a career for himself in the NFL, making six Pro Bowls as a special teamer. Sunday marks his third Super Bowl, but even while the Patriots complete preparations for their contest against Atlanta, Slater will have one eye on the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting which takes place Saturday. Bruce is one of 15 finalists. “I was really disappointed that he hasn’t gotten in up to this point, but obviously the Slater household is pulling for Isaac — my dad and I both,” Slater said. “You look at his numbers compared to the numbers

of some of the other guys that are in there. “And I know, diferent eras and whatnot, but I can’t think of a guy that’s more deserving than Isaac. He produced in one of the greatest offenses that this league has ever seen, and he was one of the key cogs in that offense. That offense won championships, so I think all the pieces are there.”

MACK LIMITED Although he’s expected to start, Pro Bowl center Alex Mack continues to be Atlanta’s biggest injury concern. Mack was listed as limited with an injured left fibula during the Falcons’ 88-minute practice Thursday at Rice University. “I just know his toughness and strength is so great,” Atlanta coach Dan Quinn told a pool reporter. “The good thing is I know he’s feeling better than he did in the NFC championship game. But yeah, I’m concerned. I’m not panicked, but I’m concerned.” Julio Jones also was listed as limited as he continues to work his way through the end of the Falcons’ playof run with a toe issue. For New England, defensive tackle Vincent Valentine (Edwardsville High) was added to the injury report Thursday. He was listed as limited with a back issue but is expected to be available on Sunday.

Ryan hopes to add Super Bowl title to resume SUPER • FROM C1

their game, and over time that may fade.” It never faded with Ryan — that desire to take his game to the next level. Quinn saw it during the offseason conditioning program, and then in the OTAs in late spring, and on into training camp. Quinn often motivates through what he calls “bumper stickers” or quick, catch slogans. His bumper sticker for player development and improvement is: Get one percent better. For Ryan, that one percent covered things such as improved footwork, better balance and better results on deep passes. “He has not backed of that,” Quinn said. “He’s continuing to find ways to improve his game, and not only has it affected him, it’s afected other guys on our team as well.” The improvement went well behind one percent. Ryan posted one of the best regular seasons at quarterback in NFL history. His passer rating of 117.1 was fifth best alltime. His 4,944 passing yards ranked 13th all-time. His average of 9.3 yards per attempt was the best the NFL has seen since Kurt Warner’s 9.9 yards in 2000 for the St. Louis Rams. Ryan has kept right on firing in the postseason, and now, he and the Falcons find themselves on the biggest stage of all in football — the Super Bowl. His ofseason work actually began even before the organized team work last spring. “Specifically this year, I made a few changes in terms of my ofseason training program, and worked with Adam Dedeaux and Tom House in California,” Ryan said. “I felt like that really helped me train the way that I needed to.”

Atlanta’s Matt Ryan, a contender for league MVP, will lead the Falcons against New England in Super Bowl LI Sunday in Houston.

House and Dedeaux run the “3DQB” training facility in Los Angeles, a program designed to improve throwing performance of quarterbacks, particularly when it comes to the deep ball. Interestingly, House and Dedeaux both have baseball backgrounds. House, in fact, is a former major-league pitcher. They’ve worked with several other NFL quarterbacks previously, and their work with Ryan certainly paid dividends. Throughout his career, Ryan has been known more for his accuracy than his arm strength but this season he completed 69 passes that went for 20 yards or more, including 15 for touchdowns. Another big area of improvement has been interceptions, or lack thereof. Over the previous five seasons, from 2011 through 2015, he threw nearly 15 INTs per season. This year, he threw only seven — a career low. Ryan is quick to credit a better supporting cast for his improvement, including the offseason addition of wide receivers Taylor Gabriel and Mohamed Sanu, and Pro Bowl center Alex Mack who solidi-

fied the ofensive line. The working relationship with an offensive coordinator is always important to a quarterback’s success, and things clicked in a big way with Ryan and Kyle Shanahan this season. That wasn’t the case in 2015, when Shanahan replaced Dirk Koetter in the OC role. Ryan struggled through his worst season statistically. His 21 TD passes were his lowest total since his rookie season in 2008, and his 16 interceptions were the second-highest total of his NFL career. The Falcons started out 5-0 in 2015, but then the bottom fell out in what became an 8-8 finish. “You lose two games in a row in the NFL and it’s Armageddon,” Shanahan said. “We lost six (in a row). You really find out who people are during those times. To watch the pressure be on Matt, the pressure be on myself, and to see how we handled it.” Shanahan believes the chemistry between he and Ryan wouldn’t be where it’s at today without the trials and tribulations of last season. More specifically, Ryan says his breakout 2016 season is simply a case of being more comfortable in the

system and being more productive in the red zone. “Understanding exactly what we’re trying to do, what Kyle’s trying to do, being more familiar with certain situational calls that he’s going to make — I think that has helped us,” Ryan said. “I think we led the league in turnovers last year in the red zone, and have been excellent in that department this year.” The Ryan-Shanahan partnership is splitting up after Sunday’s Super Bowl, with Shanahan heading to San Francisco to become 49ers head coach. So Ryan will have to create chemistry with yet another new coordinator. But for now, that doesn’t matter. Nor does it matter whether Ryan is named league MVP on Saturday during the “NFL Honors” awards show. He’s the prohibitive favorite. Right now, beating the New England Patriots is the only thing that matters. The most important step Ryan can take in terms of reaching elite status is putting a Lombardi Trophy on his resume. Unlike any other position, quarterbacks are judged by getting to Super Bowls and winning them. In that sense, Ryan has more to gain Sunday in terms of legacy than any other participant in Super Bowl LI. And he only has to beat Tom Brady, appearing in his NFLrecord seventh Super Bowl for New England, to get there. “I don’t think it puts any more pressure on any of us,” Ryan said. “Tom has had a great career. That’s for sure, and he has been so consistent for so long and done such a great job. It’s impressive. But it’s about one game.” One game to cap a remarkable season.

BY STEVE OVERBEY STLhighschoolsports.com

Luke Gassett knows his St. Louis University High hockey team already has taken the first step toward unseating three-time defending Mid-States Club Hockey Association champion CBC. A small step — but an important one. The Junior Billikens were awarded the No. 1 seed in the Challenge Cup Tournament, a month-long affair that got underway Thursday. It marks the Jr. Bills’ first No. 1 postseason seed in the 46-year history of the program. “It’s a feather in our cap and it gives us some confidence,” said Gassett, the team captain. Perennial power CBC, which has won a record 15 titles, had been given the No. 1 seed in each of the previous 15 seasons. Since 2002, the Cadets

have won 10 titles with that top ranking. But that string of holding the No. 1 seed is over. “It might not mean much to other people,” Gassett said. “But getting (the No. 1 seed) is important to us. It’s big recognition for our program.” The 34-day playof format includes robin-robin play the first week as 12 teams will be trimmed to eight. The championship is set for Wednesday, March 8, at Scottrade Center. The most important perk of the top seed for Jr. Billikens is that they will be the home team all the way through the playofs. That means they get the all-important last change when it comes to line matchups coming out of timeouts. Plus, SLUH has played well against CBC this season, winning two of three regular-season games. But Jr. Bills coach Kevin Fitzpatrick is quick to point

out the Cadets are still at the top of the mountain. “CBC is the defending champ and until someone actually beats them, then they’re the team to beat,” Fitzpatrick said. Gassett leads SLUH with 15 goals and 31 assists. Junior Joe Winkelmann has 14 goals and 14 helpers. Goaltenders Brendan Rasch (10-2, .926 save percentage) and Dylan Bak (90, .924) have been stingy. CBC (16-4) had been unbeaten against area competition the last two seasons but lost 16 seniors from last year’s championships roster. Senior Noah Roofe leads the Cadets’ attack with 17 goals. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, we knew we’d have some bumps in the road,” CBC coach John Jost said. “But I’m happy with how some of our younger players have developed and helped us out.”

BOYS BASKETBALL • SPOTLIGHT

Cahokia takes shot at toppling Althof BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

Earl McDowell wanted to make the players happy. So he gave them their toughest rival on senior night. The Cahokia athletics director, McDowell rescheduled the Cahokia boys basketball team’s senior night for Friday night when South Seven rival and reigning Class 3A state champion Althoff comes calling. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. “It should be a sellout. It’s a big game for us,” Cahokia senior forward Thomas “Taco” Bell said. “People love to watch Cahokia and Althof play.” The No. 2 small school in the STLhighschoolsports. com rankings, Althof (14-5 overall, 6-0 league) has won its last three meetings with Cahokia (15-7, 5-1). The Comanches escaped with a pair of wins in 2014. Cahokia has been waiting for an opportunity to exact a small measure of revenge. Althof triggered the Illinois High School Association private school “success multiplier” by making consecutive Class 3A title games and was pushed into Perryville 2 3 7 7 19 Festus 13 23 10 9 55 P (4-14): Stortz 11.

Class 4A this year. This is the Comanches’ only shot, and it comes when Althoff appears wounded. The Crusaders are playing without St. Louis U. signee and star guard Jordan Goodwin, who elected to have seasonending shoulder surgery last week. Even without “Goody,” the Crusaders are more than capable of making their opponents miserable. Cahokia is well-aware. “We’re not going to take them lightly at all,” Bell said. As Althoff wades into a world without its best player, Cahokia has found its stride. The Comanches have won seven in a row and 10 of its last 11. Cahokia took its share of lumps early in the season. But those games gave the team a clearer picture of what it needed to do in order to be successful.

“We’re jelling at the right time,” Cahokia coach Darian Nash said. “We’re playing pretty good defense and doing the little things.” Bell has been the catalyst this season. He’s averaging 18 points and eight rebounds per game. The only other player putting up double-digit points is senior guard Jakorey Davis, who has been good for just more than 11 a night. Among the players who have been critical in this run have been Damond Harrison, Elijah Rice, Wayne Grant. Those players will have to be strong if the Comanches are going to find their way past Althof. You can’t find a Comanche who thinks the Crusaders will just roll over. “The guys over there they still have are good players,” Nash said. “It’s a rivalry.”

CORNICES

Continued from Page 1

PLANTATION SHUTTERS

Windo Van Go makes its own upholstered cornices. They are just the right amount of tailored elegance to inish your window, providing a custom, yet simple and timeless look.

Shutters are one of Windo Van Go’s most popular products. They provide so many aspects to your window--great decor, superb insulation, lexibility of light control from room darkening to light and open. Composite/vinyl shutters come in white and off-white and are easy to clean and care for, and are more cost eficient. Wood shutters come in a variety of paints and warm stains. All of their shutters come with a variety of frame styles that work with your window.

Windo Van Go Current Promotions: free sales tax (8% value) on all plantation shutters and free cordless lift and lock on all honeycomb shades. All promotions good until the end of February. Windo Van Go is in its 27th year of covering windows in St. Louis and prides itself in offering quality, long lasting products at affordable prices.

BLINDS Like shutters, blinds give you the lexibility to control your light with just the tilt of the louvers. Still popular and maintenance free, they come standard with a decorative valance to inish off your window and are cost friendly.

HONEYCOMB SHADES Honeycomb shades (pictured, front cover) offer a soft, light look to your window and give you excellent insulation and privacy at the same time. There are many conigurations to honeycomb shades: standard raised from the bottom or a top down/bottom up gives the choice of stacking the shade at the bottom or the top or anywhere in between. These are great for bathrooms and bedrooms where many would like privacy at the bottom and openness at the top. Cordless shades are a great option to keep the cords away from the children, and motorized are great for the hard to reach windows.

require special cleaning methods.

CURTAINS Continued from Page 1 Formal areas beneit from heavy silk or velvet curtains. Most curtains from this family are strictly dry-clean only. Decide if you are willing to drag your curtains to a dry cleaner each time they need cleanup. For a digniied curtain that is less restrictive on its washing methods, consider silk rayon blends or cotton sateen. For a casual living room, billowy linen or cotton blends will do the trick. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s washing instructions. Even some casual curtains

Choosing a Color If you are retaining your existing living room layout, you will need to choose curtains that will complement its current design. When choosing a color, decide if you want your new curtains to blend in with the room or make a statement. To blend, choose a color a few shades darker than your wall color or existing furniture. If you are aiming to make your curtains pop, choose a bold color that is diferent from your current color palette.

636-394-3411 WindoVanGoSTL.com

Length The latest trend in interior design is loor-reaching curtains. The amount of curtain that is touching the loor is, of course, a preference. Curtains that extend onto the loor by about 3 inches provide a relaxed and romantic appearance. These longer curtains do require more maintenance and may get in the way during regular housework, such as vacuuming. You may prefer curtains that rise above the loor by a few inches. These are more practical and easier to manage.

Shedding a Little Light on

LED Sponsored Content by Wilson Lighting

W

hen LED lights irst hit the market, they were a more specialized light source, used in small applications like indicator lights or remote controls. But just as every other aspect of technology, this industry has grown rapidly. LED lights are no longer ixed brightness, one option, cold looking bulbs, but rather versatile, innovative, eficient sources of light that people want in their homes. As fast as this

industry is moving, you might ind yourself struggling to keep up. After all, you have many other materials, styles and technologies to worry about that all make up a beautiful, functional design. When shopping for LED lights and terms like watts and lumens and CRI come up, it can be overwhelming. The experts at Wilson Lighting have created a comprehensive guide to help you navigate the world of LED and become an expert in a single afternoon.

A standard 60-watt bulb gives you 800 lumens of light, the same as a 10-watt LED. This not only helps extend the life of the bulb, but also saves you money on your energy bill.

THE BASICS Let’s start with the basics. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. You don’t need to know too much about the science of it all, but you should be interested in the beneits. Different from your traditional incandescent lights, LED bulbs produce no heat, meaning it can be a safer option for something like under cabinet lighting, especially around children or your stash of chocolate chips. Some LED’s also last about 50 times longer than a traditional bulb, meaning a traditional bulb might last 1,000 hours, and some LED’s can last up to 50,000. That’s about a 15-year life span in one bulb. This reduces how often you need to buy replacement bulbs, saving you money over time, especially when lighting an entire home. But what really has people excited about these lights is the energy eficiency. A common misconception when buying bulbs is that the wattage tells you how much light you’re getting, but it’s actually the power usage. When looking for bulb brightness, you want to look for the word lumens, a measurement of light output. The interesting thing about LED lights is that they use around 1/6th of the power or “wattage” for the same amount of light or “lumens.” So when you’re shopping for an equivalent LED bulb to replace your current incandescent, halogen or CFL, make sure you do your conversions (see chart).

THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE The next important factor of LED lights is color temperature. This refers to the look of the light and its inherent warmth or coolness of color. Imagine the difference between your bedside reading lamp and the light you experience in a hospital—totally different, right? This is partially because of brightness but also because of the color the light gives off, which has a huge impact on the ambiance of the room.

Color temperature for bulbs is expressed in Kelvin. With Kelvin, you have to change how you normally think about temperature. For example, you would expect 7,000 Kelvin to be hot and 2700 Kelvin to be cooler, but the opposite is true. A 7,000 Kelvin temperature is cool, while 2,700 Kelvin is a very warm color temperature (see chart).

PICK YOUR COLOR Another important aspect of color with LED bulbs is the Color Rendering Index, or CRI. The Color Rendering Index refers to how much a bulb renders the true colors of what it’s lighting. How saturated are the reds? How true is the white? Or how pure are the blues? This can be the difference between your art, your furniture and your decor looking drab or looking impactful. A standard CRI is about 80, and the highest value is 100. The higher the CRI of the bulb, the truer your colors will look.

NEW FEATURES There are a few more features about newer LED bulbs that are creating a buzz. Many of these features have been available on other bulbs, but are just being introduced to the world of LED’s. This includes the dimming capabilities, more color consistency, more color temperature options and adjustable beam spreads. These features make LED lights more customizable than ever, allowing as much or as little light as you want, creating the ability to ind the perfect temperature and make adjustments. Since they were irst produced, LED lights have created a lot of excitement over their energy eficiency and how it could impact our power usage. But, without the right features and with expensive cost, it just wasn’t realistic for homeowners to invest in. Fast forward to today, and LED bulbs have everything you’re looking for and more, at a much more reasonable price.

This is an exciting step towards accessible green design, and now you can conidently navigate this ever-changing industry. Wilson Lighting is a family-owned company celebrating 42 years.Their goal is to provide the most unique collections of lighting and home décor available, many of which are sourced from all over the world and are exclusive to Wilson Lighting.

S

t. Louis band thePour will douse fans with new music at a headlining show this weekend at Blueberry Hill’s Duck Room and with a new single, “Animal.” “The word on us has been extraordinary,” says lead singer Jef Lee. “They’re referring to us as a supergroup.’” The group includes current and past members of St. Louis bands Cavo, Brookroyal and Discrepancies. There’s Chad LaRoy (drums; formerly of Cavo),

Jack Wiese (guitars; formerly of Brookroyal), Addison Bracher (guitars; of Discrepancies) and Brian Smith (bass; of Cavo). Lee is the only band member not associated with another popular St. Louis band. Lee describes thePour as what would sprout if “the Killers and Prince had a baby. You get those flavors.” Lee, a hardcore Prince fan, says that shows in the group’s music in the sense that “we don’t care what people think. I think that’s the point. We do what feels good.”

Lil Uzi Vert) 8 “Party” (Chris Brown feat. Gucci Mane & Usher) 9 “Good Drank” (2 Chainz feat. Quavo & Gucci Mane) 10 “Bounce Back” (Big Sean)

ThePour traces its roots to 2012, when LaRoy called Lee, a friend of 20 years, and said he was leaving Cavo to “try to get my fingers in some other stuf.” LaRoy said his dream project was to have a band with Lee singing, and they’d build the rest of the band around that. The first guitarist didn’t pan out. “It just wasn’t the sound we were looking for,” Lee says. Smith was brought in next. “He’s just a great human being, and Brian and Chad and I really rounded it out,” Lee says. But it still took time to complete the lineup. Producer and guitarist John Denaski was brought on, and they recorded some music together. But scheduling conflicts meant the band had to proceed without him. Enter Wiese. “He walks in, and he’s an absolute badass,” Lee says. “He’s typically a frontman, but he said he wanted to play guitar in this lineup because he loved the sound so much.” Bracher cemented the lineup, though it wasn’t over yet. The band still needed a producer. They flew to Austin, Texas, and met with Matt Novesey of Blue October but ultimately went with Matt Amelung of Encapsulated Studios in Maplewood.

“This dude is amazing,” Lee says. “He has a proven record, and he’s close to home. We wanted this album to come straight from our hometown.” ThePour began writing and collaborating relentlessly. “We’re five songwriters sitting there making sure we come up with the best material,” he says. The band’s first show was an October benefit concert at Delmar Hall, opening for Danny Liston and members of Mama’s Pride. “I think we did great, considering the five of us hadn’t walked onstage together before,” Lee says. “But we’re perfectionists, and we thought there was room for improvement. We got really good reviews.” That was followed by a November show in Springfield, Mo., with Devour the Day, then a show at Cicero’s. These three early shows allowed the band to “learn how each other moves onstage. In order to grow, you have to learn your strengths and weaknesses. We have improved tenfold.” The new single by thePour, “Animal,” follows 2014’s “The Vow.” “Animal” is about how karma bit Lee in the behind, relating to his marriage. “I thought I could do whatever I wanted to do,” says Lee, who has been married 16 years. “But when it was done to me, it kind of stunned me. It threw me of balance. The term animal refers to our relationship — it lives and breathes.” ThePour is recording its debut album in hopes of releasing it in spring. Lee says they’re working on 11 songs, covering sobriety (his own), tragedy, confusion, love, passion and more. “We’re planning on going all the way with this,” he says. “We have some really big things we want to accomplish.” WHAT ThePour • WHEN 9 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Blueberry Hill’s Duck Room, 6504 Delmar Boulevard • HOW MUCH Sold out • MORE INFO ticketmaster.com

St. Louis’ John Henry debuts video at Of Broadway BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

PHOTO: HANDOUT

St. Louis musician John Henry’s “Dark City, Dark Country” album gets a video release concert this weekend for the song “Fade to Black.” He released the album in September on the same weekend he performed at LouFest. The event is Saturday at Of Broadway. • Why did you decide to do a video release event for the song? At LouFest, I had the release of the album and I wanted to release a music video with the show then, but we weren’t able to get it done in time. I really wanted to put something out that would bring attention to the single. I ilmed it right after Christmas with

ilmmaker Tim Maupin. We’re going to be premiering the video for the irst time on a screen at the venue before our set. • What’s the song about? It deals with the selfdestruction of not being able to deal with daily life. The character in the song is dealing with that. He’s not able to handle the complexities of life. • How would you describe the video? With the video, we wanted to create something that captures the tension of the song and where the tension wasn’t eased at all. The storyline was developed by Tim. It’s about someone leaving their current life and creating a false identity as someone else. It deals with the grass seeming

greener on the other side, when it really isn’t. • How would you describe the “Dark City, Dark Country” album? The record deals with how certain issues are viewed from the city and from the country, how things can happen in life that can be viewed through very diferent perspectives depending on where you’re from. There’s a commonality running through most people, but sometimes views on issues are more divisive than they have to be. One of the main things I was interested in with this record and this song was combining the elements of a darker lyrical content with melodies and sounds that are hopefully more catchy.

FemFest provides a fresh platform for female rappers BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

t. Louis’ female rappers take the spotlight at FemFest Saturday night at 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center. Now in its third year, and in a bigger venue, the event will feature Bates as its headliner along with Shana B, Cedes, ICE, Draya, Teacup Dragun, Phenom Ionos, Raye Cole, Androbeat, Shai Lynn, Mz Law, Lala, G.A. Barz, Ph3nix, Honey Camille and more. FemFest had previously been held at Blank Space. “We treat it like it’s our day, not just another show,” says Bates (aka Tamara Dodd), who created FemFest with event coordinator Rob “Boo” Ford of S.L.U.M. Fest. In January, Bates won album and female artist of the year at the S.L.U.M. Fest Awards. She says FemFest is necessary because female rappers “don’t have these platforms. Usually when you see women at shows, we’re in bad spots. Women aren’t getting the exposure they deserve.” Though Bates is a perennial S.L.U.M. Fest

favorite, she doesn’t think female rappers are yet to a point where they are respected. “I had to prove myself way more than a man would have to,” she says. “FemFest provides a platform to help us gain respect. We shouldn’t still be fighting for respect. We should be taking respect.” Rapper Cedes (formerly TRUTHdoit), who performed last year at FemFest, says the event is needed because of doubt surrounding female rappers. “People think it’s a male situation,” she says. “They think we’re weakminded and sensitive. But I disagree. I think there are more female rappers doing way better than male rappers.” Cedes, whose new single is “Act a Fool,” also has a new mixtape, “Femcee.” “This event opens a lot of doors for female rappers,” she says. Bates, currently working on her upcoming album “Strange Woman,” featuring the single “Whole Thing,” doesn’t think she has opened any doors for other female rappers. “The doors are already open.

Bates performs at S.L.U.M. Fest at Delmar Hall

You just have to figure out how to walk through them. I’m just one pathway to walk through that door.” FemFest grew out of a Femcee Nation event at the Gramophone in 2014. Femcee Nation enlisted the help of S.L.U.M. Fest’s Rob “Boo” Ford and Finsta, who provided a venue and promotional help. S.L.U.M. Fest provided a model for FemFest, oicially birthed the following year. FemFest has seen growth year to year; its audience doubled from 2015 to 2016. “We were able to do that because the first year was lit. People were talking about it and talking about it and talking about it,” Bates says. Bringing the event to 2720 Cherokee allows for even more growth. The number of performers has increased from 15 in 2016 to 25 for this weekend’s event. “There will be more space, more lighting and everybody has more time to do their thing,” Bates says. She follows FemFest by opening for female rapper Young MA Feb. 16 at the Pageant. “She’s another woman who presents the same imagery that I present,” she says. “She’s coming to my city and I’m not there? That’s not gonna happen.”

Old Salt Union

Lightening the load The Blender Belleville’s Old Salt Union inks new deal with Compass Records

PHOTO: HANDOUT

BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / POP MUSIC CRITIC / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

Old Salt Union has entered a new chapter. The Bellevillebased bluegrass band has signed with Nashville, Tenn.-based Compass Records, the label founded by musicians Alison Brown and Garry West that specializes in bluegrass, folk and Americana sounds. Old Salt Union’s Jesse Farrar (upright bass, co-lead vocals) says the label contract was a long time coming. The band will celebrate with a signing party Feb. 17 at Old Rock House. “There have been a lot of ups and downs,” Farrar says. “And we still have a long way to go.” He says Old Salt Union from day one — and well before then, with fiddle player John Brighton — has done everything itself on a grassroots level with no real support or backers. “We all just put the pedal to the floor and went for it,” Farrar says. “It has been a long journey doing it by ourselves, but now we’ve got some support.” The band had been doing its own marketing, public relations, distribution, publishing and more, as do many bands on its level, Farrar says. Oh, and they also had to make music. “We had to find time to get to the gigs and to be creative, which can be a burstltoday.com/blender

den with all the business to take care of,” Farrar says.“What Compass does is take care of all of those burdens.” He stresses that Old Salt Union will remain hands-on with its own career, but having support from Compass makes everything easier, allowing the band to focus on the music and shows. Old Salt Union had negotiated with other labels for representation in the past, but nothing panned out. The band and Compass went back and forth for three months before everything was ironed out. “We were all on the same page,” Farrar says.“And not only are they great people but they have great connections, and they’re a great team. It felt right. “We sat down (as a group) and said, ‘Man, are you gonna do this?’ The other labels weren’t giving us what we needed.” Compass was able to ofer Brown, a renowned banjo player, to the mix. “She’s a phenomenal musician, and she has a good head musically.” The artist lineup was another draw. On the Compass roster are names like Victor Wooten, the Proclaimers, Ron Sexsmith, the HillBenders, the Infamous Stringdusters and many others. “The roster is littered with artists we respect. In our heads, if it’s good for the greats, then it’s good for us.” Old Salt Union hopes to collaborate with other Compass acts. “We’re en@blenderpd

tering into a family, and that’s the goal,” Farrar says. “The record label wants to see us succeed, so they’re going to put us in front of as many people as possible.” Old Salt Union — its most recent release is the 2016 EP “Cut & Run” — wants to get something out as soon as possible, likely re-recording the best songs from previous releases. “We want to redo them and do them right,” Farrar says. “The idea is to start as close to zero dollars as possible. We don’t want to start with a big debt. That’s the first move.” The songs the band is resurrecting have been played many times the last few years. Since originally recording the songs, Farrar says, the band has changed and perfected them. “They will sound diferent. They’ve matured and grown into new arrangements.” Recording at Compass’ studios in Nashville should bring a new finesse to the recordings. Old Salt Union already knows its way around the studios. Last year, long before the band was in talks with the label, it won Compass studio time as part of a music festival competition. The band recorded “On My Way” there. “We got to work with Alison (Brown) hand-in-hand,” Farrar says. New to Old Salt Union is guitarist Rob Kindle. “He’s a fantastic guitar player — a young cat, 24,” Farrar says. “He took my place as the youngest in the band, which I am a little sour about. He brings a whole new level of instrumentation to the group that we’ve never had before.”

hat is this thing called art? The question has been posed countless times, only to elicit answers that inevitably come down to individual taste.

The Lawson and Tyson exhibitions are on display in the Main Gallery; Bernhardt’s mural is on the museum’s 60-foot-long Project Wall; Cameron’s photographs are featured in the Front Room.

American subjects — or at the very least, a version of that essence that comes across as uncannily right. “Cortez” depicts a young tattooed man straddling the roof of an automobile. “Jouvert, Flatbush, Brooklyn,” a portrait of a party scene, is reminiscent of painter Ernie Barnes’ “Sugar Shack” — which was adapted for the cover of Marvin Gaye’s 1976 album “I Want You.” The New Yorkbased Tyson, who was born in London, takes a playful approach in her paintings and drawings. The self-explanatory and vividly surreal “Figure With Pigeon” sidesteps the horrific to arrive at the comical — both the person and the bird would likely test the limits of facial recognition technology. St. Louis native Bernhardt is represented by “XXL SUPERFLAT PANCAKE.” The piece, which incorporates images ranging from a toucan to a brand-name battery, reflects the influence of graiti artists such as Keith Haring. “Actually, when I was making (the mural), I was thinking of him a lot,” Bernhardt says. “He painted everywhere and on anything. His painting was fast, and I’m kind of like that, too.” Cameron employed up-to-theminute technology — a cellphone — in coming up with the photographic images in his intriguingly ethereal “Clouds” series.

Add her throwing herself into a meat grinder, and you’ve got a show.” What could Lady Gaga possibly do with a football? Will a new meme emerge, a la Left Shark of the 2015 Super Bowl? Or could a new controversy erupt, a la Janet Jackson’s 2005 wardrobe malfunction? All eyes will be on Gaga to find out.

Lady Gaga sings the national anthem before Super Bowl 50 last year in Santa Clara, Calif.

ENJOY LADY GAGA’S CONCERT

Lady Gaga, who headlines the halftime show at NRG Stadium in Houston, sang the national anthem at last year’s Broncos-Panthers Super Bowl. (We had to look up those teams.) If you haven’t heard, the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots are playing this year’s game. Country superstar Luke Bryan handles “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The Schuyler sisters from the original Broadway cast

of “Hamilton” will sing “America the Beautiful” during the pregame show. Gaga’s first St. Louis appearance was in 2008, as an opener for New Kids On the Block at Scottrade Center. “Unannounced support act Lady Gaga, who is featured on the New Kids on the Block CD, kicked of the evening with a miniset that stressed presentation and presence,” pop music critic Kevin Johnson wrote in his review for the Post-Dispatch.

Two years later, Gaga and her sparks-shooting bra returned to St. Louis. Johnson rated her January 2010 concert at the Fox Theatre among the best of the year; she also played in July 2010 at Scottrade Center. Gaga returned in 2013 with quite a bang. Johnson wrote: “You want Lady Gaga birthing herself after unzipping an oversize, inflatable nude torso? Here it is. You fancy her cavorting on a modified motorcycle with another woman,

There’s one more reason to pay attention to the TV during Sunday’s super game: the commercials. With 30-second spots going for around $5 million, advertisers are working hard to stand out for the more than 110 million viewers who are expected to tune in for the game. Many of the advertisements are already available to watch online; you can see some of them at stltoday.com/ go. Some ads will air live, and one will even be shot during the game, the Associated Press reports. Hometown favorite Anheuser-Busch bought three minutes of ad time for four commercials promoting Bud

Light, Budweiser, Michelob Ultra and Busch. Our beloved Clydesdales will be back in the Budweiser ad, which pays homage to co-founder Adolphus Busch and his travels to the United States from Germany. We know a Clydesdale won’t kick a football or an adorable donkey won’t try out for the team, but if you’re into that kind of thing, there’s always YouTube. MEET THE MASCOTS

If you have no interest in the sports players running around on the sports field, why not focus on the mascots? There are three who matter at this game: • TD, the mascot for the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee. • Freddie Falcon, the mascot for the Atlanta Falcons. • Pat Patriot, the New England Patriots’ mascot. TD, whose main job is to make appearances in and around Houston to promote Super Bowl LI, looks like a football player with a giant football head, wearing a snug, pointy helmet. (Don’t worry; he’s smiling about it all.) His bio lists his dream job as “Astronaut Quarterback,” so he has ambitions beyond big sports-game

Our brains may not be able to process this at all come Super Bowl 88, or LXXXVIII. But that will be the year 2054, so it’s likely that we all — including the players and graphic designers — will be replaced by robots.

day. (Fun fact: This is the third Houston Super Bowl. It was also played there in 1974 and 2004.) Freddie, who looks a bit like a distant, toupee-wearing cousin of Fredbird, has traveled all around the world, including Cuba and Egypt, and even celebrated the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong. In his online bio, Pat Patriot lists his weight as “100 percent muscle” and his birthdate as July 4, 1776. He wears a tri-corner hat and a toothy permagrin above his beefy chin. Both mascots have active Twitter accounts, though Freddie was slapped on the wing in 2013 for an insensitive tweet after he participated in a suicide prevention walk.

SUIT UP, BUT DON’T COMMIT TO A TEAM

You could wear Patriots or Falcons fangear, but if you’re not actually paying attention the game, why bother? We found some versatile gear that can be worn all year for other types of sports games and even reused for next year’s big sports bowl. This touchdown T-shirt shows a sports player wearing a helmet. He’s carrying a stick and hitting a ball with it. (Isn’t that how the game is played?) (amazon.com, $14.99) Win over the locals when you wear this “Go Local Sports Team” shirt, which can be worn any time. In any city, really. It’s great for showing your sports spirit when you’re traveling. (amazon.com, $14.99) These foam minifingers are available in many colors so you can display just enough generic enthusiasm without showing any particular alliance. They’re sized so the wearer won’t block the TV screen for anyone else. (amazon.com, $6.99 for set of 12)

DO A LITTLE MATH

Last year, for the 50th Super Bowl, graphic designers finally had an excuse to use standard Arabic numerals instead of confusing Roman numerals. “When we developed the Super Bowl XL logo, that was the first time we looked at the letter L,” Jaime Weston, NFL’s vice president of brand and creative, told ESPN. “Up until that point, we had only worked with X’s, V’s and I’s. And, at that moment, that’s when we started to wonder: What will happen when we get to 50?” This year, it’s back to Roman numerals, which means when you look at the number 51, written as LI, it looks like you might pronounce it “lee.” And so will Super Bowl 52 (LII) and 53 (LIII).

Powerful voice James Baldwin’s writings ring true as ever in Oscar-nominated ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ ★★★★ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

J

ames Baldwin was an African-American writer who, in his time, would have been called a Negro by white people who considered themselves racially enlightened, but far worse by those

for whom Negroes were a problem. Revered for his short stories and novels, Baldwin is perhaps best remembered as an essayist and social critic who took as his subject the black experience and its complexities. In the 1950s and ’60s, his

prominent voice was as eloquent as it was uncompromising. But his death in 1987 prevented him from completing one of his most ambitious projects: a book about civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. The three men had at least two things in common: They were friends of the author, and they were assassinated. Through their stories, Baldwin hoped to create a larger narrative about what it meant to be black in America. Just as we can never know what

OUR MOVIE RATINGS ★ Skip it ★★ So-so ★★★ Good ★★★★ Excellent

Evers, King and Malcolm X might have achieved had they lived, we will forever be deprived of the book that Baldwin might have fashioned from their experiences. But a fascinating new documentary picks up where he left of. The Oscar-nominated “I Am Not Your Negro” is at once political and poetic — and rare in its ability to address the injustice of racism not only through intellect but also through emotion. Working with Baldwin’s own words, including his unfinished book “Remember This House,” director Raoul Peck delivers an audiovisual essay that presents America’s racial malaise as a problem that has yet to be solved. Brilliantly blending archival material, including clips of Baldwin on television and in public appearances, with narration by Samuel L. Jackson, Peck makes intriguing connections between the 20th century civil rights movement and the contemporary activism of Black Lives Matter. Despite considerable progress, the film suggests, much work remains to be done — and Baldwin’s voice remains as relevant as ever.

Q&A

Director Raoul Peck was determined to ‘bring Baldwin back’

PHOTO: CHRIS PIZZELLO (PECK); SONY PICTURES CLASSICS (COMEDIAN)

BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

“I Am Not Your Negro” has been praised for bringing AfricanAmerican social critic James Baldwin — one of the key voices of the 1960s — back into the public sphere. Directed by Haitianborn ilmmaker Raoul Peck, the 2016 documentary is nominated for an Academy Award. His drama “Lumumba,” about the Congolese politician, was released in 2000. His next dramatic feature traces the early years of Karl Marx. Recently, Peck spoke with Go! Magazine about “I Am Not Your Negro.” The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

• “I Am Not Your Negro” has a poetic quality that’s unusual for a documentary. Why did you decide to take that approach? I wanted it to be very cinematic. I wanted to do a real ilm with images, which is telling a story as well. Not just a political pamphlet. • What went into researching Baldwin’s work, which included the notes for the uninished book, “Remember This House”? Once I had decided to bring Baldwin back somehow, I approached his estate. I wrote to them, and they responded, “Come and see us” — which was already extraordinary, because they had a reputation for not even responding to

★ Skip it ★ ★ So-so ★ ★ ★ Good ★ ★ ★ ★ Excellent stltoday.com/go

• Samuel L. Jackson provides narration for the ilm. How did he become involved? I had used the voice of a friend of mine so that we could edit the ilm. But I knew that it needed a wellknown voice, and a great actor, to get it to where I wanted it to be. Very early on, Samuel L. Jackson was at the top of my list. I wanted somebody who would take the words and make them his own, so that you would not have any distance between those words and the voice. • The ilm addresses not only Baldwin’s times but also more recent developments in American race relations. What role do you think his ideas can play in helping us make sense of the world? The real problem of this country is not just race — it’s also class. And it’s injustice and poverty, and the wealth that some people have, when the majority of people don’t have that wealth. This is the real story. So by the time we had Obama, and then we had Ferguson, I was not discovering anything. I already knew that. And Baldwin already knew that.

Leslie Mann and Robert De Niro in “The Comedian”

‘The Comedian’ is a disappointing would-be comedy ★½ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

J

ackie Burke (Robert De Niro) is a comedian who owes much of his fame to an apparently innocuous sitcom in which he starred. That was years ago, but Jackie still resents being reminded of the show and the character he portrayed. Why can’t audiences be as enthusiastic about his standup routine? It would probably help if he were funnier and less abrasive. Jackie seems to be out to kill his listeners — literally. That goes a long way toward explaining why, during a nightclub performance, he winds up punching a heckler. While fulilling community service at a soup kitchen, Jackie meets

Harmony (Leslie Mann), an insecure divorcee who’s certain he wants to get her into bed. She may not be wrong, but Jackie succeeds in persuading her to spend time with him. The dyspeptic comic also occasionally drops in on his more levelheaded brother (Danny DeVito). But Jackie is not the kind of guy who listens to anybody — not even Harmony’s dad Mac (Harvey Keitel), an oldschool mobster who warns him to stay away from his daughter. “The Comedian” is a disappointing would-be comedy that makes you wonder why the legendary De Niro bothered to participate. Maybe he just happened to have

some time to kill? But it’s been a long time since he starred in such classics as “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull” and “Heat.” Working from a lackluster screenplay by a squad of writers, director Taylor Hackford (“Ray”) delivers a ilm so low in energy that it’s almost as if it was made to assist airline passengers in falling asleep. Unsurprisingly, Hackford elicits performances that seem perfunctory at best. And it’s sad to see De Niro and Keitel — who rose to fame in director Martin Scorsese’s “Mean Streets” — reunited in such a poor ilm. Reportedly, De Niro is working with Scorsese on a crime drama to be released next year. Let’s hope the actor’s glory days aren’t over.

Misguided mission ‘he Space Between Us,’ a futuristic love story, squanders an intriguing premise ★½ BY CARY DARLING / FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM

C

all it “The Unspectacular Now.” “The Space Between Us” aims to be an epic story of young love on the level of “The Spectacular Now” or “The Fault in Our Stars.” The cinematography often is gorgeous and the score is full of teary uplift. But none of that matters when little about the film feels authentic. Set in a near future where a group of astronauts — thanks to visionary Richard Branson/Elon Musk-like scientist/ entrepreneur Nathaniel Shepard (Gary Oldman) — is on its way to Mars for

20

a long-term stay, the film does raise questions worth pondering. What if one of the crew (Janet Montgomery) were secretly pregnant as she boarded the ship? Once the word is out, do you bring them back or let them go? Assuming the latter, how would a human not born on Earth be diferent from all those who came before? How disorienting would it be for the child to be from Earth but not of Earth? In “The Space Between Us,” the baby boy, Gardner, grows into a bright, inquisitive and relatively happy young man (Asa Butterfield) among the scientists in the antiseptic, artificial world

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 02.03.17-02.09.17

of the Martian outpost. But he may never experience his true “home” as his body is slightly diferent from that of other humans; he isn’t suited for Earth’s atmosphere or pressure. But he has developed an online friendship with another lonely teenager, an Earth girl named Tulsa (Britt Robertson), and that neatly dovetails with the desire of Shepard’s company to find a way to reintegrate him into the larger human society. So Gardner becomes the boy who fell to Earth … and that’s when the movie falls apart. Quickly breaking away from his minders, Gardner goes on a mission to find both Tulsa and his father. Outside of having trouble at first walking and running (because he feels so “heavy” on Earth), Gardner shows little sense of the extreme dislocation someone in his position would feel.

A bigger problem, though, rests with the Tulsa character. Perhaps in an effort to make her more “Force Awakens” cool, director Peter Chelsom (“Hannah Montana: The Movie”) and writers Allan Loeb, Stewart Schill and Richard Barton Lewis have turned her into a veritable superhero — she flies planes! she expertly breaks into and steals cars! she has wisdom beyond her years! — thus undermining any emotional credibility the film had been trying to build. If they wanted to show how strong and independent she is, they could have done it without making her a cartoon. We’re supposed to applaud as these crazy kids flout authority and escape across the country, but since the movie has so easily squandered its intriguing premise, there’s little reason to cheer.

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU Robust Wine Bar owners Stanley and Arlene Browne will open Snax Gastrobar at 3500 Watson Road in Lindenwood Park, which the restaurant J McArthur’s vacated Dec. 31 after an 18-month run. This new concept will feature a menu of “upscale humble food” overseen by Robust executive chef Joseph Hemp V. “When we were thinking about a new concept, (Snax) felt like it was perfect for (Hemp) because this is what he loves to do,” Arlene Browne says. The beverage program will emphasize beer and also feature classic cocktails and a wine list that Browne describes as good, though modest compared to Robust’s. The space is undergoing mainly cosmetic renovations. The Brownes plan to open by the first week of March. BY IAN FROEB

patty. I’ve enjoyed several of those variations, but I keep returning to the Basic burger, mediumrare, topped with nothing more than cheese.

BRASSERIE BY NICHE WHERE 4580 Laclede Avenue • MORE INFO 314-454-0600; brasseriebyniche.com

The Brasserie Burger at Gerard Craft’s French restaurant is a sort of haute Big Mac, with American cheese, dijonnaise, pickles and onions. If you want to haute it up even further, you can add foie gras for $10, but as is, it appeals to both nostalgia and carnivorous desire.

THE DAM WHERE 3173 Morganford Road • MORE INFO 314-771-3173; thedamstl.com

This small Tower Grove South restaurant calls its skinny burgers “slow food fast,” with fresh, sustainable, and hormone- and antibotic-free meat. Whether such things matter to you or not, you can’t deny the power of the Animal, a triplepatty monster with cheese, bacon, onion, barbecue sauce and — the killer final touch — jalapeños.

FIVE BISTRO The first of this crop of “new” classic burgers might have been the one that Anthony Devoti served at his Grove restaurant Newstead Tower Public House. Though Newstead closed a few years ago, Devoti ofers a fantastic burger, made with Piedmontese beef, on the Saturday-only lunch menu at Five Bistro.

appearing so rapidly it’s been diicult to keep up. So here are my choices for 11 essential “new” (that is, not already classics like those mentioned above) St. Louis burgers.

Steve Gontram’s burger restaurant, now with three locations, serves what is, hands down, my favorite burger in St. Louis. Dad’s Green Chile Cheeseburger is a great patty — always cooked to my desired medium-rare — with a triple onslaught of pepper jack cheese, green Hatch chiles and green-chile mayonnaise.

GRAPESEED

BUY 1 GET 1

WHERE 5400 Nottingham Avenue • MORE INFO 314-925-8525; grapeseedstl.com

As at Brasserie, the burger at Grapeseed is a tribute to the Big Mac, with American cheese and “special” sauce as well as pickle and onion. And, as at Brasserie, it’s delicious if you get the joke or not, thanks to quality beef and the same care that chef Ben Anderson brings to all the food at his Southampton bistro.

50% OFF

The burger at Retreat is the Platonic ideal of the smashed bistro burger currently en vogue. The patty’s flavor is still beefy in spite of its thinness, and its toppings of candied bacon, a fried egg and cheese sauce take it that next step from good burger to messy, memorable indulgence.

A burger isn’t the first reason you should visit Ben Poremba’s Parigi; executive chef Ramon Cuie’s take on pasta and other classic Italian fare is. That said, his svizzera is a terrific bacon cheeseburger, with fontina cheese, grilled onions and slabs of pork belly. This tower holds together just long enough for you to devour it.

If any burger has come close to joining Five Star at the top of my list, it’s the cheeseburger at Matthew Daughaday’s Maplewood restaurant. An excellent patty is enriched with an outrageous tallow aioli as well as white cheddar, while pickled green tomato provides a necessary tart accent.

Yes, Sugarfire is a barbecue joint first and foremost, and, yes, not ordering the brisket or ribs is a challenge. But Sugarfire serves an excellent version of the skinny griddled burger. The patty is a blend of chuck, brisket and short rib, simply seasoned and tasty even if you top it with nothing. (See sugarfiresmokehouse. com for complete list of locations.)

Head games Tube Talk Noah Hawley explores mental illness

and superpowers in Marvel-spawned ‘Legion’ ★★★

BY GAIL PENNINGTON / TV CRITIC / GPENNINGTON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

Fans of “Fargo” just wanted Noah Hawley, who so brilliantly channeled the Coen brothers in adapting (but not exactly adapting) their quirky dark drama for television, to get back to work on Season 3. First, though, Hawley tackled another adaptation, this one inspired by a Marvel Comics character with ties to the “X-Men” franchise. Don’t worry if you don’t know much about that. “Legion” stands solidly as its own thing, although what that thing is doesn’t immediately take shape. Dan Stevens, almost unrecognizable as Matthew Crawley from “Downton stltoday.com/tubetalk

Abbey,” stars as David Haller, whom we meet in a trippy opening montage as a cheerful child who grows into a disturbed and disturbing young man. After a suicide attempt, David is committed to a mental hospital, where he is analyzed and medicated. He’s befriended by a fellow patient, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza of “Parks and Recreation”), and falls for a newcomer, Sydney (Rachel Keller), who believes that insanity may actually be genius and that there’s a chance that David’s “problems aren’t in your head.” “Legion” is nowhere nearly this straight-line in its telling, and the setup as described is a tiny fraction of the story, which also jumps around in time en route to the pivotal twist that @tubetalkpd

will set up the real plot. Even if you barely understand a thing that’s going on (and be patient; chances are you will), “Legion” is a joy to watch, surreal and beautiful, with as many funny asides as frightening moments. Especially, if you’re not an aficionado of comic-inspired entertainment, don’t worry that “Legion” was born as a Marvel character with ties to the “X-Men” franchise. That doesn’t matter at the outset, and if it does later (three episodes were made available for preview), you’ll have plenty of warmup time. Hawley himself was attracted to “Legion” not because it was part of the comic genre but almost in spite of that, he told TV critics last month in Los Angeles. “The first thought I had was, well, if we remove the genre, is there a compelling show that you would want to watch there? Because I think that the underlying show, whatever the genre is, has to be a compelling character or story.” He seized on the character of David, he said, “and then introducing (Sydney) and the idea of this epic love story.” Diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic, hearing voices, David (and by extension viewers) is “not sure what’s real and what’s not real,” Hawley said. That makes the whole tone and shape of “Legion” subjective, as opposed to “Fargo,” which is objective, Hawley said. “Even the way we shoot (‘Fargo’) it is meant to sort of say, this is a true story,” he said. With “Legion,” the idea “is to try to create something subjective where at every moment you are experiencing what he’s experiencing.” To that end, “Legion” isn’t set in the present; music and colors suggest the initial action takes place in the 1970s.

“This is our fi first rst show of the Trump administration. of,, they said. Take the week of America will still be here when you get back, they said.” ST STEPHEN CO COLBERT on “The Late Show”

“His perception of reality is that some of it feels retro, and some of it feels futuristic,” Hawley said. “I thought it’s important to make something unique.” Unique “Legion” is. At one point in the unsettling, mesmerizing pilot, which Hawley took 21 days (nearly three times as long as a regular episode) to direct, the story turns upside-down, setting David of in a whole new direction. Viewers should prepare to hang on for the ride. Marvel, which began publishing comics in 1939 and has become an entertainment powerhouse, “doesn’t ever start out from a place which is, OK, this is a person who is defined by their powers,” Jeph Loeb of Marvel Television said on the panel with Hawley. “We start out from a place of, this is a story about what is happening to David and in that world.” Hawley got Marvel quickly on board when he “came in and started talking about the nature of mental health and the nature of perception of people,” Loeb said. “The best Marvel stories are the ones that take issues that are out there in the real world and put them through a prism, and then they come out through someone who is a storyteller, that’s what’s exciting to us.” Loeb doesn’t think the genre and “XMen” tie will necessarily draw viewers to “Legion.” “We think people are going to come to the show because Noah Hawley and this incredible cast and the incredible writing and FX have merged together to tell a kind of show that Marvel has never made before.” WHAT “Legion” • WHEN 9 p.m. Wednesday • WHERE FX • MORE INFO fxnetworks.com/legion

CHARGE UP BATTERY TO AVOID OTHER CHARGES

CAR TALK

By Ray Magliozzi - Automotive Writer usually a warning sticker that cautions us not to use the alternator to charge up the battery; they want us to plug the battery into a charger, and avoid quickly turning the new alternator into an old alternator.

Dear Car Talk: “Back in the old days (i.e. 1964), we used to think that if you had a low or dead battery, it would charge faster if the engine was running faster. So we would drive it in a lower gear at high rpm’s, thinking we were helping the battery charge faster. Was that true then? Is it true now? Was it ever true?” - Chris

Plus, if you have a dead battery and the cause isn’t obvious (like, you know you left your lights on or your in-car espresso machine was running all night), you won’t know what the real problem is.

Yes, it was true then, and it’s true now. The battery will charge faster if you rev the engine faster.

Let’s say the problem is your battery is faulty and won’t hold a charge. If you just drive around to charge it up, you’ll wear out your alternator, and then you’ll need a new alternator AND a new battery.

Why? Because the faster the crankshaft turns, the faster it turns the belt that runs the alternator. And the faster the alternator turns, the more electricity it produces to run all the electrical stuff in the car — and recharge the battery.

Or what if the reason your battery is discharged is the alternator is on its last legs? Then you go on that 50-mile drive to charge up the battery, and the alternator dies when you’re 25 miles from home, leaving you with a nice, fat towing bill.

But we don’t recommend you use it that way for a weak or dead battery. The alternator is ine for replenishing the battery after you start the car, and for keeping it topped up. But it’s an expensive and ineficient substitute for a non-automotive, plug-in battery charger.

So my advice is: If your battery fails or falters, have the battery and the charging system checked out. And while it’s being checked out, any reputable shop will know enough to put your battery on the charger for you, and give it back to you all ready to go.

Think about the economics. If you want to charge your battery from a dead or low state, you’re going to spend $8 on gasoline driving 50 miles to nowhere (actually, you’ll spend more if you’re driving in low gear at high rpm!), and, at the same time, you’ll be wearing out your alternator, which costs hundreds of bucks to replace.

Do you really need that truck if you only make one trip to the lumberyard per year? Find out what kind of car NOT to get in Click and Clack’s pamphlet ‘’Should I Buy, Lease, or Steal My Next Car?’’ Send $4.75 (check or money order) to Car Talk/Next Car, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803.

Whereas if you bought a $29.95 battery charger and plugged it into the wall, the battery would charge fully overnight, and it’d cost you 31 cents.

Most pairs reached this quality slam, with good chances for success. Hard Luck Louie counted 11 tricks, including one diamond trick, and a 12th would come if West held either one of the two missing queens. Louie found out about the queen of hearts right away when he covered the 10 of hearts lead with dummy’s jack. No luck there as East produced the queen. Louie drew two rounds of trump, ending in dummy, and led dummy’s singleton diamond. Had East risen with

the ace, Louie would have had 12 tricks, but East had an easy duck. Louie needed both the king and queen of diamonds for his opening bid. Louie won with his king, then cashed the king of clubs and led a club to the jack, ending up down one. “Don’t the cards ever lie right for me,” cried Louie? When Lucky Larry played this slam, with the same lead, he took a diferent view of his chances. He saw that his contract was cold as long as East held the ace of diamonds, regardless of where the queens were located. He played low from dummy at trick one, winning in his hand with the king. Larry drew trumps in two rounds, ending in dummy, and led dummy’s diamond. East again played low, so Larry won with the king and then ruffed his low diamond in dummy. He crossed back to his hand with a trump and led the queen of diamonds. Rather than ruffing, Larry simply discarded a low club from dummy. East won his ace, but had to lead into one of dummy’s ace-jack combinations or yield a ruff-sluff. Six spades, bid and made! (02/03/17)

DEAR ABBY

WHAT’S THE DIFF? Find six diferences between the panels.

Boy’s beliefs don’t match mom’s

Dear Teen • I can try. What you should NOT do is allow your mother’s devout faith and your lack of it to become a contest of wills or a basis for argument. At 15, you are entering adulthood, and these are important years in your life. Thank your mother for the great foundation she has given you. Tell her

you love her, and you hope she will continue to love you as you explore what your beliefs are on your spiritual journey — because it IS a journey. A wise clergyman once told me something I will share with you: The opposite of faith is not doubt; it is certainty. Dear Abby • I have had one major and one minor bout with cancer. Everyone I know treated me the same and were helpful except for one longtime friend I’ll call Brandy. You see, I changed and grew as a result of having cancer. The others seemed to accept this, but not Brandy. She still expects me to ‘‘snap back” and do everything I liked to do before. She can’t accept that I want to try new things and have let go of others, sends me ‘‘gloom and doom” articles about cancer, and even tried to fix me up with someone even though I am happily married. Brandy treated me like an invalid, even after I recovered. She does not like change and became angry when I suggested

that both of us had changed — perhaps too much to sustain the friendship. I tried explaining it to her, but she didn’t understand. A therapist advised ending the friendship as gently as possible, so I did. Do you think I did the right thing? We used to have so much in common. — NOTHING’S THE SAME IN NEW YORK Dear Nothing’s • Although you used to have a lot in common with Brandy, your cancer changed you. Someone who sends ‘‘gloom and doom” articles about the disease and tries to destroy your marriage by fixing you up is not a friend but a saboteur. You absolutely did the right thing by following your therapist’s suggestion. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Diferences: 1. Arm is moved. 2. Window is smaller. 3. Arm is not showing. 4. Sweater collar is smaller. 5. Mouth is diferent. 6. Pocket is added.

Dear Abby • I’m a 15-year-old boy. I’m happy with my life, except for one thing. My mom believes in God, and Dad doesn’t. I believe in God, but I don’t support my mom’s religion. My friends and neighbors think I’m in that religion, but I don’t believe in their beliefs. It’s really uncomfortable when people ask why I haven’t been in church. Mom signs me up for church activities, and I don’t like going. I feel awkward when I try to talk to my parents about it. I’m not close to them, and I don’t know what to do. I have been feeling stressed out lately. I don’t want to hurt my mother’s feelings. Can you help me? — TEEN IN OGDEN, UTAH

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Avoid co-worker’s bad manners

For complete channels and 24-hour program information, customize your own TV listings at STLtoday.com/tv.

Dear Miss Manners • I work in a small department in a mediumsized hospital. My problem and that of the other workers in our department concerns a fellow employee whose table manners are deplorable, not to mention unhealthy in the hospital environment in which we work. When we eat lunch together, he will pick his teeth with a plastic fork, use his napkin as a handkerchief or loudly clear his throat, all without excusing himself from the table where we are all eating. Today, he helped himself to my lunch using his fingers to tear of a piece of meat without asking permission. We were all horrified. Please, tell us how to politely inform him of his terrible manners without hurting his feelings. Besides showing a lack of etiquette, his table manners are unsanitary, especially in a hospital setting.

Gentle Reader • His manners are unsanitary in a non-hospital setting as well, which leads Miss Manners to wonder why you choose to continue to eat lunch with him. Ending joint lunches may be a sacrifice, but it avoids the rudeness of correcting someone else’s manners. If your co-worker notices the change and asks, it may then be possible to explain that you have a prejudice from childhood of not sharing your lunch, but you did not want to give offense. Dear Miss Manners • Our son and his fiancee are planning a wedding in her hometown. It will be an out-of-town wedding for all of our side of the family and friends, and many of the bride’s friends. With hopes of getting a sense in advance (for accommodations and other planning purposes) of how many guests will make the

long trip, would it be acceptable to include on the save-the-date notices a line of “Advance RSVPs Welcomed and Appreciated” along with the wedding website address? I feel that without the RSVP prompt, most guests will just wait for the formal invitation, which will come far too late to reserve rooms and make other important arrangements. Gentle Reader • While there is a logic to getting answers sooner, Miss Manners fears that it breaks down when asking someone to respond to an invitation that has not actually been extended. She has no objection, however, to simply sending the invitation earlier. Send questions to Miss Manners, aka Judith Martin, on her website, missmanners.com; to her email, dearmissmanners@gmail.com; or through postal mail to Miss Manners, Universal Uclick, 1130 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Mo. 64106.

Calcium level can signal a hormone excess FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • I’m a healthy female in my mid70s. I’ve taken the recommended calcium citrate with vitamin D for years, until about three months ago, when test results showed I have slightly higher than normal calcium levels. I stopped the calcium, but testing results were the same three months later. Since women have been advised to take calcium, especially as we age, this is quite a surprise. — M.T.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

Answer • Most of the calcium in the body is locked away in the bones. The body has several systems to carefully regulate the calcium level in the blood. The two most powerful of these are vitamin D and parathyroid hormone. Abnormalities in either of these can cause problems in blood calcium levels, which is very dangerous, because it can affect the muscles. A very low blood calcium level causes tetany, severe cramping and inability to move muscles normally (tetanus is an infectious disease that causes muscle cramps via an entirely diferent pathway). With low calcium intake, blood calcium remains normal or near normal, but the calcium in the bones is depleted. That’s why adequate calcium intake is important in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Calcium through the diet is preferred to calcium via supplements, because supplements increase the risk of kidney stones and may increase the risk of heart disease. High levels of blood calcium are more likely to be due to excess parathyroid hormone than high vitamin D (which is very uncommon). With the body systems working normally, excess dietary calcium is simply excreted by the kidneys. Since the most likely cause for high calcium is an excess of parathyroid hormone, often made by a benign tumor of the parathyroid gland, your doctor should test your parathyroid hormone level. The osteoporosis pamphlet furnishes details on calcium intake and how it afects bones.
