Notre Dame Cathedral for more than 12 hours destroyed its spire and its roof but spared its twin medieval bell towers, and a frantic rescue effort saved the monument’s “most precious treasures,” including the relic revered as Jesus’ Crown of Thorns, officials said Tuesday. French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to rebuild the beloved Roman Catholic architectural landmark, and wanted to see it completed within five years. “We have so much to rebuild,” Macron said in a televised address to the nation. “We will rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral even more beautifully.

When it comes to the city’s medium security prison, known as the City Workhouse, Mayor Lyda Krewson wants to have it both ways. On one hand, she’s proud of the fact that the jail population at the facility that has been subject to multiple lawsuits over “hellish and inhumane conditions” has been significantly decreased. In 2016, the city averaged 1,400 prisoners in its two city jails. On April 10, that number was 1,046, with 226 of those being federal defendants held on contract. The City Workhouse, with a capacity of 1,138, held only 343 defendants that day. Krewson, her chief of staff Steve Conway, and her director of public safety, Judge Jimmie Edwards, all say the mayor’s office deserves credit for the jail population reduction. “We’ve done that through focusing on it,” Krewson said last week in a meeting with Post-Dispatch editors and reporters. On the other hand, Krewson also said this in the same meeting: “The mayor’s office doesn’t have anything to do with how many people are in jail,” she said. That’s up to Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner, and public defender Mary Fox, to judges and the bail they set. It’s about the overall level of crime, and the city’s decision to ask the U.S. attorney’s office to prosecute certain gun crimes in the city. Krewson called the meeting with the Post-Dispatch in response to a letter from Comptroller Darlene Green last week that added her voice to the growing chorus that is singing the phrase: Close the workhouse. There’s city Treasurer Tishaura Jones, state Sen. Jamiliah Nasheed, Alderman Megan Green, Fox and,

of course, the most compelling voice of all: Inez Bordeaux. I first wrote about Bordeaux a year ago. The single, black mother of four, is a nurse. Between March and April 2016, she was in the workhouse. Held on a warrant on a felony theft charge — she had accepted unemployment benefits longer than state law allows — Bordeaux suffered what she says were unspeakable conditions in the workhouse. Her stay there contributed to later homelessness. She lost her nursing license. It turns out, her charge was later determined unconstitutional. With the help of the state public defender office and nonprofit civil rights law firm ArchCity Defenders, she rebuilt her life, got a job, got her nursing license back, cleared her record and became one of the leading advocates for the Close the Workhouse movement. So pardon her if she gets a little offended — OK, a lot offended — when Krewson and Edwards say the conditions at the workhouse have significantly improved. “There are people we are still bailing out who are seeing all the same things I saw three years ago,” Bordeaux says. Those “same things” are laid out in a federal class action lawsuit filed by the ArchCity Defenders in late 2017. That lawsuit — which is currently in mediation — alleges many of the same decrepit conditions outlined in other federal lawsuits decades ago. “On any given day, detainees in the jail must endure infestations of rats, snakes, cockroaches, and other insects,” the complaint alleges, “extreme temperatures ranging from stifling heat in the summers to frigid cold in the winters, inconsistent and inadequate provision of medical care and mental health treatment, poor air quality and proliferation of mold caused by the jail’s lack of ventilation and inadequate sanitation, overcrowding … These conditions not only violate the United States Constitution, but also run afoul of the most basic stan-

dards of human decency.” Edwards calls references to past conditions at the workhouse — apparently even those from a couple of years ago — a “false narrative.” “It’s not an inhumane facility,” he says. He told the producers and reporters with Black Entertainment Television’s docuseries “Finding Justice” something similar. But when they asked for a tour of the facility, Edwards declined: “I will not permit you guys to take cameras into our facility,” he said. “That won’t happen.” Edwards offered me a tour. I plan to take him up on it, but first, I have another suggestion: How about the first female mayor in the city’s history finds a way to gather all the other women who are advocating for change at the workhouse, and tour the facility together? How about a meeting of the minds among Krewson, Jones, Nasheed, Gardner, Fox, Bordeaux and the two Greens? Because beyond Edwards’ bombast, is the simple truth that Krewson’s position might not be that far from theirs. “We don’t want to run two jails,” the mayor said last week, in the same meeting at which Edwards said the opposite. “We want to not need to.” That sounds like a political opening not far removed from the one suggested by Darlene Green in the letter that spurred Krewson to action: “A roadmap to closing MSI is achievable,” Green wrote. “This effort will take leadership and collaboration — across multiple departments and jurisdictions.” The time for collaboration has come. Credit whomever fits your political fancy, but Bordeaux knows the movement she helped spark has lit a fire. “The public support for closing the workhouse is at an all-time high,” she says. “They’re feeling the heat.” Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

Heavy-handed ‘Breakthrough’ recounts remarkable local story BY DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The remarkable true story of St. Charles’ John Smith is a miraculous tale that could make a wonderful and inspirational 30-minute film. “Breakthrough,” which tells the story, is one hour and 50 minutes long. When it is good, which is to say for about a half-hour, it is moving and quite effective. But when it is bad, which it is for great, long, tedious stretches at a time, it feels like a madefor-TV movie. On Lifetime. A bad one. You may remember what happened. In January 2015, 14-year-old John Smith was playing on frozen-over Lake Sainte Louise with two friends (in the film they are playing tag, because that’s what 14-year-olds do). They broke through the ice. The friends were quickly rescued, but John was underwater for 15 minutes. When he was brought to the surface, he had no pulse. He continued to show no signs of life for a full 45 minutes until his mother, Joyce Smith, arrived at the hospital and prayed for him. That’s when a pulse was detected. Although doctors assumed he would soon die or suffer catastrophic brain damage, after more prayer, he made a complete recovery. It was a miracle. But it was also a miracle with little narrative complexity. There isn’t much more to the story than you can say in a handful of sentences. And that is not a formula for a captivating motion picture. Chrissy Metz (“This Is Us”) stars as the faith-filled, ever-optimistic Joyce, who more than once tells people to take their negativity away from her comatose son. Topher Grace (“BlacKkKlansman,” “That ’70s Show”) plays her cringingly hip pastor, Jason Noble, whose passion overcomes Joyce’s distaste for him. The stricken John is played by Marcel Ruiz (“One Day at a Time”), though he is in a coma much of the time. Dr. Jeremy Garrett of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital is played by Dennis Haysbert (“Reverie”), who does not closely resemble the real Gar-

‘BREAKTHROUGH’ ★★½ out of four Run time • 1:50 Rating • PG Content • Thematic content, including peril • John and Joyce Smith will appear at a VIP premiere of “Breakthrough,” hosted by Cardinals president Bill DeWitt, at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday at Chase Park Plaza Cinema. • Meet the Smiths at each “Breakthrough” screening from 3 to 10 p.m. April 23 at Marcus Mid Rivers Cinema at Mid Rivers Mall in St. Peters.

rett. But at least you’re in good hands with Haysbert. It is perhaps inevitable that a story about a miracle would be told with a heavy hand (“The Song of Bernadette” being a notable exception), but TV director Roxann Dawson spins her tale with the delicate touch of a longshoreman. The obviousness and lack of subtlety actually serve her well on occasion, in the most emotionally successful moments of the film. These tend to be the times you would think they would be, though perhaps the best scenes of all involve Mike Colter as a fireman who begins to understand the source of his help in finding John underwater. But most of the film is just awkward, especially the pre-accident first act. Writer Grant Nieporte has no evident feel for how real human beings talk. And he absolutely has no idea when his story should end. Though set locally, the movie was filmed in Manitoba, Canada. St. Louis audiences may enjoy one shot of the Arch (and two others that look to have been created digitally), but they will giggle at such anachronisms as a medevac helicopter taking off amid the skyscrapers of Wentzville. “Breakthrough” has its truly uplifting moments, but it also reminds us that movies about miracles are not always miraculous.

PEOPLE Carly Simon writing memoir Carly Simon, the 1970s pop star best known for her hit “You’re So Vain,” is writing a memoir about a surprising friendship she had with another very famous woman: former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The “intimate, vulnerable” memoir was announced Monday by publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Simon will detail “the bond that grew between two iconic and starkly different American women,” according to the book’s publisher. The singer and Jackie O. met at a summer party on Martha’s Vineyard, an encounter that led to an “improbable, but lasting friendship.” Simon, 73, described Onassis, who died in 1994 at age 64, as both a “protective mother figure” and “mischievous pal.” The memoir, named “Touched by the Sun” after a Simon song, is scheduled to hit shelves on Oct. 22.

County OKs financing for America’s Center expansion BY JEREMY KOHLER st. Louis Post-dispatch

CLAYTON • The St. Louis County Council voted 4-3 along party lines Tuesday to help finance a $175 million plan to expand and upgrade America’s Center in downtown St. Louis. Under the plan, first announced in October, the fund used to service the debt issued in 1991 to finance the Dome at America’s Center — built for the Rams, who left in 2016 — would be used to pay off new, 40-year bonds issued for the expansion after the Dome’s debt is retired in 2021. The $6 million per year pay-

ment comes from revenue raised by the county’s hotel-motel tax. The measure’s supporters have said the project is needed to draw more conventions, allowing St. Louis to better compete with other metro areas that have invested to upgrade tourism infrastructure. The St. Louis Board of Aldermen voted 21-3 in December to approve the city’s contribution. The council’s action also funds what could be a significant recreation complex for bill sponsor Hazel Erby’s district in the center of north St. Louis County. Exactly what and where that project would be has

not been determined, but under revenue projections it would get a sizable portion of the hotel-motel taxes generated in the county — a portion that is projected to grow. Democrats Sam Page, Lisa Clancy and Rochelle Walton Gray joined Erby in voting yes. Republicans Ernie Trakas, Mark Harder and Tim Fitch voted no. The Republicans said there was plenty of time to talk about how to spend proceeds from the county’s 3.5 percent hotel-motel tax. Fitch suggested the county might even consider ending the tax rather than finding new ways to spend it.

Gray, apparently the swing vote, said she initially had reservations but felt Erby’s plan was a “great compromise.” The vote featured an uncommonly harsh exchange between Trakas and Erby, who have been allies for two years. Erby had said on Monday she was not sure she would move the bill forward, but apparently decided before the meeting that she would. At one point, Trakas stormed over to her chair and slammed a note in front of her. When it came time for a vote, Trakas called the project an abomination and said, “Shame on my Democratic

colleagues if they plan to move this forward tonight.” Erby replied: “When you came down and slammed this note in front of me, I felt that it was bullying.” “Really?” Trakas said. “That’s how I felt when you came over before this meeting started and told me you were going to move the bill after you told me you were going to hold it.” Harder noted that the council had several meetings on its plan to commit $6 million to the proposed POWERPlex sports megadevelopment at the St. Louis Outlet Mall in Hazelwood, to which Erby asked him if he had a financial in-

terest in that project. “I have no interest in the POWERPlex,” he responded. Kitty Ratcliffe, St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission president, lauded the project. “I don’t mean to offend anyone when I say this, because Peoria is a very nice place, but I don’t think St. Louis wants to be Peoria,” she said. She said she supported the North County project because “there are problems in this county that the tourism industry can fix, and we think we can work together with all of you to create a complex that does both tourism and recreation.”

Jail hearing doesn’t dig deep, but gives family a voice County Council hears calls for transparency amid ongoing inquiry

March 1, repeatedly criticized the county for refusing to provide any information to her about the case. She said she hired a lawyer not for financial gain but to help her get answers. Her lawyer, Mark Pedroli, filed a lawsuit last week accusing jail director Julia Childrey of violating the state’s open public records law by refusing to turn over public records concerning jail operations. Troupe returned for the council’s regular meeting Tuesday night, directing her anguish at County Executive Steve Stenger, telling him that his subordinates had ignored her and treated her coldly and asking him what he planned to do about it. Stenger told Troupe he was a father, too, and said he had great sympathy for her loss. But he said the county’s investigation into her son’s death took time and that he also wanted to see justice. He said: “I agree with transparency, but the issue is there is an ongoing investigation, and in the name of transparency we want to know what happened.”

Council inquiry into problems plaguing the county jail got off to a slow start Tuesday when, at the request of the county’s lawyers, the jail did not send a representative to the hearing. But council member Ernie Trakas, R-6th District, an attorney, said he could understand why the St. Louis County Justice Center staff had to refrain from public comments after three inmates have died in custody this year, a sequence that has led to external and internal investigations. “There are legal claims pending and they may well be justified,” Trakas said. “Because of the very real possibility of a lawsuit is going to proceed, if I were the county counselor, I would have made the same recommendation.” Instead of answers, the hear-

Woman won restraining order hours before she was beaten BY CHRISTINE BYERS st. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis

man has been charged with fatally beating his wife just hours after a nonprofit posted his bail. Samuel Lee Scott, 54, was also served the same day — April 9 — with a restraining Scott order telling him to stay away from Marcia Johnson, according to court records. Instead, Scott brutally beat her that night at their home in St. Louis, according to a murder charge filed Tuesday. Johnson, also 54, died Sunday. Scott had hit his wife in January and threatened to kill her when she tried to leave their house, court records say. Scott told her he “might as well finish what (he) started since (she) was going to contact the police,” according to the documents. St. Louis police entered Scott into a database as “wanted” for questioning about a misdemeanor assault charge, and arrested him April 4. Prosecutors charged him with misdemeanor assault the next day. Judge Calea StovallReid set his bail at $5,000. Three days later, Johnson obtained the order of protection. Scott was served on April 9 with the order forbidding him from entering his wife’s home and being within 300 feet of her. That same day, the St. Louis Bail Project posted his bail, and Scott went home around 7:45 p.m., according to court documents. About 11 p.m., a friend found Johnson bleeding at the home, in the 3800 block of Wisconsin Avenue. She was unconscious, had a broken eye socket and several broken ribs, and “was bruised from head to toe,” according to court documents. Police

said she was found nearly dead with severe head trauma. Due to the severity of her injuries, she was unable to tell police what had happened, according to court documents. She died Sunday. Preliminary findings show Johnson died from blunt force trauma, according to court documents. Scott admitted that he struck Johnson, according to the documents. On Thursday, prosecutors filed a motion to revoke Scott’s bail in the earlier domestic assault case, which Judge Elizabeth Hogan granted. He was arrested Monday and charged Tuesday with murder. The St. Louis Bail Project is part of a national nonprofit that bails out people before they have been convicted of a crime, if they cannot afford to post bail. The group has been operating in St. Louis since January 2018. Its website says it hires “Bail Disruptors” in cities where it operates to find people to bail out. “We also look for ties in a community that can lend support,” according to the website. “If they have previous involvement with the criminal legal system, we look at their history of court appearances. The Bail Project does not discriminate by charge.” Scott had been sentenced to probation on a drug charge in 2003. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail for assault in 1998, and 236 days for drug possession in 1997. Mike Milton, site manager of the St. Louis Bail Project, said in a statement Monday: “Nobody wants to see something like this happen, but it is crucial to remember that bail didn’t cause this tragedy — Mr. Scott, a 54-year-old father, was charged with a misdemeanor, and if he’d just been wealthy enough to afford his bail he would have been free in either case.

Kroenke, NFL can’t push suit into arbitration BY KURT ERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • A Missouri appeals

court Tuesday blocked another bid by Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke and the National Football League to force an ongoing lawsuit over the 2016 relocation of the team into arbitration. In a 17-page decision, a three judge panel of the Missouri Appeals Court, Eastern District, found that the Rams can’t force a lawsuit to be hammered out behind closed doors based on the language

of the team’s 1995 lease agreement. The court said rules governing the arbitration issue weren’t in place until eight years after the 1995 contract was put in place. “Simply stated, the change in the … rules in 2003 cannot and does not alter the parties’ contractual intent in 1995. The … rules are not a time machine,” the court noted. The case, filed 15 months after the January 2016 relocation vote by NFL owners, pits the city of St. Louis, St. Louis County and the Regional Convention and Sports

Complex Authority against the Rams, the NFL and the 31 other NFL teams and their owners. The case alleges breach of contract, fraud, illegal enrichment and interference in business by the Rams and the NFL, causing significant public financial loss. A successful outcome for St. Louis won’t bring the Rams back from California, but it could cost the Rams, the NFL and NFL teams millions of dollars — maybe hundreds of millions. The latest ruling is among a handful of

pretrial decisions that have largely gone against Kroenke and the NFL. If the case reaches trial, Kroenke, team executive Kevin Demoff and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell could be put on the witness stand. The relocation vote by the NFL owners came after a public task force to keep the Rams in St. Louis with a new riverfront stadium spent more than $16 million on the failed effort.

Aldermen stall on rule barring lobbyists from floor BY MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • The Board of Aldermen opened its new session Tuesday but delayed a decision to bar lobbyists from the floor and require them and members of the general public to get tickets to watch from an overhead gallery. The rules change, which was informally endorsed Friday at a Democratic caucus meeting, now is set for discussion and possible adoption at the board’s next meeting April 26. “This gives us some time,” Alderman Heather Navarro, 28th Ward, said in an interview. “We’re still talking about how to handle the tickets and the gallery.” Navarro, who backs the move to kick lobbyists off the floor, is among some members concerned that some city residents who show up on the day of a meeting might be kept out of the gallery if all the tickets are claimed by then. Alderman Sharon Tyus, 1st Ward, said she plans to introduce an amendment that would continue the current practice of letting anyone into the gallery without having to secure a ticket. “This is the people’s house,” Tyus said. “The gallery should be open to

portunity to attend meetings,” he said in an interview. “We have to have some order. People (on the board) wanted some additional order.” He predicted that at most meetings, anyone appearing from the public

likely would still be able to get a seat because the gallery is rarely filled. On such unusual occasions, he said, anyone who fails to get a ticket would be sent to a nearby meeting room to watch via a TV feed. “No matter who

shows up here, they will be accommodated,” Reed said. Alderman Joe Roddy, 17th Ward, said he’d like some way to keep people who disrupt a meeting by shouting from the gallery from returning to another meeting. He said one way to do that might be to require people in gallery seats to sign in. He pointed out that while disruptions don’t happen often, they have occurred on occasion. Reed said debate on the rules was put off because aldermanic staffers didn’t have time to highlight the changed wording in printed copies as requested by some members. At the meeting Tuesday, Reed and 14 ward aldermen elected April 2 were sworn into office. The contingent includes three newcomers — Bret Narayan, 24th Ward; Jesse Todd, 18th; and Shameem Clark Hubbard, 26th. Hubbard is the granddaughter of the late Alderman Joseph W.B. Clark and the wife of former state Rep. Rodney Hubbard. Her sister-in-law is 5th Ward Alderman Tammika Hubbard.

Local GOP lawmakers raising funds at fast clip BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • Anticipating tough challenges again in 2020, some St. Louis area Republicans in Congress raised large amounts of campaign money the first three months of 2019. Two Republican congressmen from Metro East — Mike Bost and Rodney Davis — went into April with hefty campaign accounts. Davis, R-Taylorville, Ill., raised $542,000 from January through March and, after expenses, had about $394,000 on hand. Bost, R-Murphysboro, Ill., raised $296,000 and had about $258,000 in his campaign

account. Democrat Betsy Dirksen Londrigan, who lost one of the closest elections in the nation, announced last week she would challenge Davis again in 2020. Londrigan did little fundraising in the first three months and had just under $1,800 left in her campaign coffers. As previously reported, Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, raised more than $500,000 — a pace of more than $5,500 a day. According to the latest FEC reporting, she had roughly $1.4 million in her campaign account, in anticipation of a potential rematch with Democrat Cort Van Ostran, who has not announced whether he will run

again. All three Republicans narrowly won in 2018 and are expected to face strong Democratic challenges again in 2020. Wagner and Davis, especially, are on early watch lists as potentially vulnerable incumbents next year. A regional Republican who cruised to re-election last year also kept up a heavy fundraising pace. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-St. Elizabeth, Mo., took in more than $326,000 in the first three months of 2019 and had more than $2.3 million in the bank. Of that, $1 million is a personal loan that Luetkemeyer, a former banker, made to his

campaign several campaigns ago and carries over from election to election. Luetkemeyer’s 2018 Democratic opponent, Katy Geppert, reported raising $4,188 over the same period and having $3,286 in her campaign account as of April 1. Luetkemeyer won their 2018 race by a 2-1 margin. Cori Bush, who has filed for a Democratic primary rematch against Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-University City, had not had her first-quarter fundraising results posted on the Federal Election Commission website as of Tuesday. Clay had earlier reported raising about $145,000 and he had

about $283,000 in his campaign account as of April 1. Missouri has no U.S. Senate race in 2020, but Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin is gearing up for re-election. Durbin raised more than $3.7 million from January through March, and showed about $2.4 million in his campaign account. The only Republican filing campaign reports so far, Peggy Hubbard, reported raising just over $50,000 and having $1,662 in the bank. Durbin was raising money at the rate of $41,400 a day, or $1,725 an hour. Chuck Raasch • 202-298-6880 @craasch on Twitter craasch@post-dispatch.com

Education commissioner said special board met its goals SCHOOLS • FROM A1

handover in a presentation at the state board meeting Tuesday at the Westin St. Louis downtown. The state board voted unanimously to approve the transition. Vandeven said the special administrative board had achieved its goals of regaining state accreditation, improving the district’s finances and maintaining stable leadership under Superintendent Kelvin Adams, who was hired in 2008 after nearly annual turnover in that top job. The appointed board will be disbanded as of July 1 and the seven-member elected school board will take over.

UNDER STATE CONTROL The long-awaited vote Tuesday was expected to return the district to local control. The appointed board voted last year to do so after a transition task force made the same recommendation. Since the appointed board took control in 2007, the district has improved in several areas of student performance. The high school graduation rate has risen to 78 percent from 56 percent. Out-of-school suspensions have dropped to 473 from 1,720. Preschool attendance has nearly doubled to 2,100 students. But during the same period, overall enrollment in the district fell from 33,000 students to fewer than 21,000. Average test scores in the district remain below state average. Fewer than 20 percent of thirdgraders are proficient in English, compared with the Missouri average of 49 percent, and 12 percent of seventh-graders are proficient in math, compared with 38 percent statewide. “They have not improved the scores for the kids, which should have been job No. 1,” said David Jackson, who served on the powerless elected board from 2007 to 2015. The current special administrative board members are Richard Gaines, appointed by Aldermanic President Lewis Reed; Rick Sullivan, appointed by

then-Gov. Matt Blunt; and Darnetta Clinkscale, who was appointed by then-Mayor Francis Slay.

‘TAKE ON THIS CHALLENGE’ Michael Jones, of St. Louis, said Tuesday the state appointees who took over the district in 2007 had taken on “a challenging burden that when they picked it up was in its worst possible condition.” Jones and other board members thanked the state appointees for their work and advised the elected board to ignore the politics of their position. Jones advised them to “be mindful” of public input but not to take orders from voters. “The most important relationship you have from an educational point here on is not with the community,” he said.

“It’s with those six other people.” The elected board has continued to meet during the years of state oversight. All but two members, Tracee Miller and Adam Layne, of the sevenmember board were present for the vote Tuesday. Miller and Layne, the newest members, were elected April 2. Jones is the only remaining member from the 2007 board. “I think the cream has risen to the top and we’re going to see some good things out of this school district,” Jones said. “We’re going to work well together. I’m not concerned with what’s happened in the past, because we’re going to move forward.” Since fall, elected board members have received leadership training over eight weekends, and the newly elected

for two years, about what should we be doing to help reduce student debt, and encourage students who might not traditionally think about coming to our school to come to our school,” said Dr. Eva Aagaard, senior associate dean for education. Last year, the median debt among graduating medical school students nationwide was $200,000, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. At Washington U., the average debt among recent graduates is closer to $100,000, officials said. Free tuition for inaugural classes is a recent trend among newly opened medical schools, including the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2017. Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine in California plans to offer free tuition for its first five classes when it opens in 2020. Last year, New York University announced that medical school tuition would be free for all students thanks to private gifts and a $600 million endowment. A smaller school, Case Western Reserve University, has offered free medical school tuition through the Cleveland Clinic since 2008. Other schools such as UCLA and Columbia University have scholarship programs that cover full tuition for about 20 percent of the medical students. Officials at NYU said applications jumped by 47 percent in the first year after the free tuition announcement, and the number of

African American applicants nearly tripled. At Washington U., about 45 medical students currently qualify for full tuition scholarships based on merit or financial need. The additional funds — about $7.5 million per year — will provide the equivalent of about 21 full scholarships, Aagaard said. The scholarship budget is funded by the medical school and its training hospitals, Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s. “The majority of our students will have some amount of financial aid,” she said. Washington U.’s medical school classes are typically more than 80 percent white or Asian American, officials said. The school hopes to attract students from more diverse backgrounds by reducing some of the financial worries, Aagaard said. The medical school will also change its curriculum in 2020 to bring more clinical experience as early as the first year, as well as an increased focus on social and economic influences on health care, she said. “This investment really allows us to create doctors who are not only invested in being outstanding physicians, but invested in training the next generation and doing research to move medicine forward and lastly being engaged in the community to improve health,” Aagaard said.

members also will get intensive training before the next school year through the Missouri School Boards’ Association. “I have never seen a process where I thought a board was better prepared to take on this challenge than you folks,” said state board vice president Charles Shield to members of the elected board present for the vote. State board member Peter Herschend advised the elected board to retain Adams as superintendent. Adams, who is credited with helping restore community support for city schools, has agreed to extend his contract to 2022. “The most important single job you have is the selection and maintenance and evaluation of leadership,” Herschend said. “If you do that job well, then the district will succeed. You fail

in that job and it is a guarantee that St. Louis as a school district will revert back to exactly what it was.” Dorothy Rohde-Collins, president of the elected school board, said the board had voted unanimously to extend Adams’ contract and planned to retain him as superintendent. The board has been meeting with him since fall to prepare for the transition to local control and will hold a two-week retreat July 13 to prepare for the school year. “We’ll be starting out on the right foot,” she said. The board faces a challenge in regaining the community’s confidence, but the ongoing meetings with Adams and training board members have undergone have put the board in a “good position to lead,” Collins said. “We’ve got a lot of opportunity to show everyone what we’ve learned,” she said. Adams said he expected a short turnaround for the elected board members to get used to their new powers. “I have no doubt in my mind that they’ll be ready,” he said. The elected board will need to reestablish its leadership role, said Michael Casserly, executive director of the Washingtonbased Council of the Great City Schools, a coalition of urban school districts including St. Louis Public Schools. “Boards have some critical responsibilities. One is in hiring and retaining a superintendent, and they’ve got a good superintendent,” Casserly said. Casserly said the board’s other roles will include defining an overall direction and culture for the school system, monitoring progress and exercising financial responsibility. “There are lots of good ways to do those things and lots of dysfunctional ways to do those things,” Casserly said. “We’ll see how they do.” Blythe Bernhard • 314-340-8129 @blythebernhard on Twitter bbernhard@post-dispatch.com

Lawsuit from McKee’s bank came after city ended its development agreement MCKEE • FROM A1

its $1.7 billion western headquarters. The judge also dismissed Bank of Washington’s accusations of fraud, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment against the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority. However, the ruling did not dismiss the bank’s claims of fraud and negligent misrepresentation against an affiliated entity, the LCRA Holding Corporation, which the city’s economic development arm used to assemble land for the NGA. Even so, Gerard “Jerry” Carmody, an attorney at Carmody MacDonald representing the city agencies, said in a statement his clients were “pleased with the decision” and called it “another positive step in the redevelopment of north St. Louis.” Bank of Washington attorney Paul Puricelli, whose firm Stone, Leyton & Gershman has also represented McKee for years, said his client intends to proceed with the claims in the lawsuit the judge allowed. Though the city still faces the risk that McKee’s bank could win damages in court, Tuesday’s ruling bars its attempt to reinstate a claim on land where the federal gov-

ernment has already awarded a $700 million-plus construction contract and hopes to begin work soon on a massive intelligence campus. Bank of Washington’s lawsuit, filed in July, came a month after the city ended its 2009 development agreement with McKee, who bought up hundreds of acres of north St. Louis property over the last 15 years and promised major redevelopments in the area. While little has been redeveloped, McKee helped first draw the attention of the NGA to the North Side neighborhood. The city assembled the remainder of the site. The bank’s lawsuit claims the LCRA misled it into releasing its liens on McKee’s land in a January 2016 agreement following tense negotiations between McKee, his bank and the economic development agency. That agreement said the city would try to renegotiate his development agreement in exchange for McKee selling his land to the city, including some he had purchased from its land bank just years earlier. But the Board of Aldermen never passed a new agreement that extended McKee’s development deadlines, and after the Missouri Attorney General sued McKee for state tax

credit fraud in June, the city broke off its long-term relationship with the developer. McKee and the bank argued he had met his development obligations under the LCRA agreement, pointing to the now-open GreenLeaf Market and Zoom gas station, across Tucker Boulevard from each other. They accused the city of not intending to follow through with the promises made in the LCRA agreement, which Missouri law says “is a misrepresentation sufficient to demonstrate fraud.” “The bank has clearly made sufficient allegations to support its fraud and negligent misrepresentation claims against LCRAH,” the judge ruled. The bank’s claims against LCRA were dismissed based on a government’s legal immunity. However, the court said it wasn’t yet clear if the LCRA Holding Corporation met the same standard for being a public entity that would entitle it to similar legal immunity. Two other legal actions related to the city’s dispute with McKee and the bank are currently in state appeals court after the city parties won lower court victories.

accident, possibly as a result of restoration work at the global architectural treasure that survived almost 900 years of tumultuous French history but was devastated in the blaze on the second day of Holy Week. Investigators have already questioned nearly 30 people, said a Paris judicial police official, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to comment on an ongoing probe. News that the fire was probably accidental has done nothing to ease the national mourning for the symbol of French pride. A plan to safeguard the masterpieces and relics was quickly put into action after the fire broke out. The Crown of Thorns, regarded as Notre Dame’s most sacred relic, was among the treasures quickly transported after the fire broke out, said Deputy Mayor Emmanuel Gregoire. Brought to Paris by King Louis IX in the 13th century, it is purported to have been pressed onto Christ’s head during the crucifixion. Also saved was the tunic of St. Louis, a long, shirtlike garment from the 13th century, said Culture Minister Franck Riester. The cathedral’s famous 18th-century organ that boasts more than 8,000 pipes also survived. “The works of art, the most precious treasures were secured last night,” Riester told reporters, thanking teams from City Hall, the culture ministry, firefighters and the bishopric who worked to save the items. Some of the works were being transferred from City Hall to the Louvre, where they will be dehumidified, protected and eventually restored. The minister said the cathedral’s greatest paintings would be removed start-

It’s Barr’s first immigration-related decision since taking office. Typically, an asylum seeker who crosses between ports of entry would have the right to ask a judge to grant them bond for release. Under the new ruling, they will have to wait in detention until their case is adjudicated. “There will be many, many people who are not going to even have the opportunity to apply for release now,” said Gregory Chen, director of government relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Chen said that about 90 percent of asylum seekers pass their credible fear interview, the first step in seeking asylum. The decision doesn’t affect asylum-seeking families because they generally can’t be held for longer than 20 days. It also doesn’t apply to unaccompanied minors. Barr’s ruling takes effect in 90 days and comes amid a frustrating time for the administration as the number of border crossers has skyrocketed. Most of them are families from Central America who are fleeing violence and poverty. Many seek asylum. There were 161,000 asylum applications filed in the last fiscal year and 46,000 in the first quarter of 2019, according to the Executive Office for Immigration Review. Sarah Pierce, policy analyst for the Migration Policy Institute, said the number of decisions by immigration judges that the administration of President Donald Trump has referred to itself for review is unprecedented. The administration — under both Barr and former

Experts prepare to lift a statue Tuesday from the damaged Notre Dame Cathedral after a fire the day before. Other statues had been removed before the blaze.

ing Friday. “We assume they have not been damaged by the fire, but there will eventually be damage from the smoke,” he added. The 3-meter-tall copper statues that looked over Paris from Notre Dame’s 96-meter peak already had been removed from the roof days ago and were sent to southwestern France as part of a 6 million-euro renovation on the spire and its 250 tons of lead. Much was saved in the interior, too. The only major work damaged inside was the cathedral’s high altar, installed in 1989 under Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger. It was hit when the spire collapsed, said Laurent Prades, heritage director for Notre Dame. “We have been able to salvage all the rest,” said Prades, who watched the recovery overnight. “All

the 18th-century steles, the pietas, frescoes, chapels and the big organ are fine.” The three large stainedglass rose windows, among the most famous parts of the cathedral, were not destroyed but might have been damaged by the heat and will be assessed by an expert, he added. Repairing the cathedral, including the 800-yearold wooden beams that made up its roof, presents challenges. The roof cannot be rebuilt exactly as it was because “we don’t, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century,” said Bertrand de Feydeau, vice president of preservation group Fondation du Patrimoine, adding the roof restoration work would have to use new technology.

Federal advisory group recommends changes to migrant processing ASYLUM • FROM A1

ADVERTISEMENT

Attorney General Jeff Sessions — has reviewed a total of 10 immigration rulings. That’s compared to four under all of President Barack Obama’s tenure and nine during George W. Bush’s. “This has been a really unprecedented use of power to influence the immigration system,” Pierce said.

GROUP SEEKS CHANGES A federal advisory group is calling for significant changes to how the federal government deals with the surge of migrant families that officials say is overwhelming the southern border. In a draft report unveiled Tuesday, a committee of the Homeland Security Advisory Council called on the administration to immediately establish three to four regional migrant processing centers along the southwest border with Mexico. The bipartisan group also endorsed changes to an agreement that generally bars the government from keeping children in immigration detention for more than 20 days. “There is a real crisis at our border,” say the authors, who include immigration experts, lawyers, former federal officials and a medical doctor. “An unprecedented surge in family unit migration from Central America is overwhelming our border agencies and our immigration system. This crisis is endangering children.” The report calls for the establishment of centers where migrant families would be processed by immigration officials, receive medical care and have their asylum cases heard by immigration judges. And they want to see a

similar processing center established in Guatemala, near that country’s border with Mexico, so migrants can make asylum claims without having to make the dangerous trek to the U.S. Katharina Obser of the Women’s Refugee Commission said many of the ideas in the report would only exacerbate the problem. “It is long overdue for the government to invest its existing funds in a comprehensive, legal and humane approach to protection at our borders,” she said, but many of the report’s recommendations “would do little to better care for vulnerable families and children seeking protection in the United States.”

MORE TENT FACILITIES The Trump administration wants to open two new tent facilities to temporarily detain up to 1,000 parents and children near the southern border, as advocates sharply criticize the conditions inside the tents already used to hold migrants. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a notice to potential contractors that it wants to house 500 people in each camp in El Paso, Texas, and in the South Texas city of Donna, which has a border crossing with Mexico. Each facility would consist of one large tent that could be divided into sections by gender and between families and children traveling alone, according to the notice. The notice says the facilities could open in the next two weeks and operate through year end, with a cost that could reach $37 million.

Health News Syndicate HNS—A popular needle injection for people with joint pain is now available in an inexpensive nonprescription pill. The breakthrough came when researchers discovered a way to deliver the injected “relief molecule” through the digestive system. Top US clinics have used these needle injections for years because they deliver powerful relief. Unfortunately, the shots are painful and expensive. They also only work on the joint being treated. The new pill, called Synovia, delivers the same “relief molecule” as the injections. However, it has some impressive advantages. First, it’s inexpensive and nonprescription. Also, relief is delivered to every joint in the body because it enters the bloodstream through the digestive system. This gives it the ability to reduce a much wider variety of pain. Users report greater �lexibility and less stiffness in their knees. Hands and shoulders move painfree for the �irst time in years. Even neck and lower back pain improve dramatically. All this without spending over $600 on needle injections and taking trips to the doctor every week. Themedicalcommunity is very excited about this new breakthrough. Dr. Jacob Moss says, “Synovia is a great option for those suffering from joint pain. Injections are usually a last resort because of the pain and expense. However, Synovia should be taken at the �irst sign of discomfort.”

New Discovery The needle injection procedure has been given to hundreds of thousands of patients over the last several years. Doctors use the shots to boost a critical element of the joint called synovial �luid. This lubricating �luid is found between the cartilage and bones of every joint. According to the �irm’s headofR&D,MikeMcNeill, “Researchers have been working for years to �ind a way to boost this �luid noninvasively. The problem was the molecule used in the injections was too large to absorb into the bloodstream.” Top scientists conquered this obstacle by �inding a smaller form of the same molecule. This new glucose form is easily absorbed by your stomach and intestines! Now those who suffer from joint pain can get relief without painful injections. At less than $2 per day, early users like Steve Young are impressed. He says, “I’ve tried more pills than I can count, without any luck. Synovia is different. My knees and hands haven’t felt this good in years!”

NO MORE NEEDLES: A popular needle injection pain-killer for joint pain is being replaced. The key molecule in these injections can now be delivered by taking a new low-cost pill called Synovia.

Impressive Clinical Results

Approved By Leading Doctors

Leading clinics use injection therapy because it works. Recent clinical trials show the pill form also delivers major relief. One example is a landmark study out of Europe. In the study the active ingredient in Synovia was compared to a popular NSAID pain reliever. The goal was to see if it could reduce pain and swelling around the knee. The results were incredible! After just 30 days, more than 8 out of 10 people who took Synovia’s active ingredient had NO swelling. However, only 2 out of 10 people who took the NSAID experienced reduced swelling. The study also looked at cases of severe swelling. Amazingly, zero cases of severe swelling were detected in the group taking the active ingredient found in Synovia. This means it was 100% effective for the cases of severe swelling! In contrast, 9 out of 10 people taking the NSAID still had severe swelling. McNeill points out, “The impressive thing about this study is the active ingredient wasn’t tested against a fake pill. It was up against one of the most popular NSAIDs people use every day. It’s easy to see why people in pain are excited to get relief without an injection.”

The new delivery system for this molecule has caught the attention of leading medical doctors. “Needle injections for joint pain have been around for years because they work. Being able to get the same relief molecule through a pill is amazing. Injections may be a last resort, but I’d recommend Synovia at the �irst sign of pain,” said Dr. Marie Laguna. Dr. Moss adds, “The research behind the active ingredient in Synovia is very exciting. This product is a great choice for those who haven’t had success with other joint pain treatments.”

The New Way It Delivers Relief Getting relief without injections has big advantages. The most obvious is avoiding being stuck by a large needle every week for 5 weeks. Another downside of injections is the doctor can “miss”. The needle needs to be inserted into a precise spot in the joint to work. Otherwise, you risk the treatment being ineffective. However, boosting your lubricating joint �luid by taking a pill delivers relief to all your joints, not just one. There’s an additional reason the active ingredient in Synovia works so well – it nourishes the cartilage. McNeill says, “This is vital because cartilage does not have blood vessels. The �luid in the joint serves two very important pain-relief roles: lubrication and giving the cartilage the nutrients it needs.”

110% Money Back Guarantee Amazing feedback from users of Synovia has generated a wave of con�idence at the company. So much so that they now offer Synovia with a 110% money back guarantee. The company’s president, Michael Kenneth says, “We’ve seen how well it works. Now we want to remove any risk for those who might think Synovia sounds too good to be true.” Simply take the pill exactly as directed. You must enjoy fast acting relief. Otherwise, return the product as directed and you’ll receive 100% of your money back plus an extra 10%.

How To Get Synovia Today marks the of�icial release of Synovia in Missouri. As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to everyone who calls within the next 48 hours. A Regional Order Hotline has been set up for local readers to call. This is the only way to try Synovia with their “110% money back” guarantee.

unnecessary vote on a 100plus page board bill without proper review,” he said. Krewson said she had various questions about the plan but that “I personally am not trying to stop this.” Reed noted that the Board of Aldermen also has to sign off and that it will take at least a few weeks to go through the legislative process after it’s introduced there April 26. So holding off estimate board approval doesn’t delay anything, he asserted. Koran Addo, an aide to Krewson, made the same point. However, Green said that getting support upfront from the estimate board, the city’s top fiscal body, would have signaled to financial markets that the refunding is likely to happen. “We have been stalled, that’s the bottom line,” she said. “You have to tease the waters.” St. Louis officials have been exploring the potential of leasing the cityowned airport to a private operator. Krewson and Reed said they haven’t taken a position on that but Green is opposed. Also Tuesday, a proposed $1.15 billion city operating budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 was submitted to the board. Budget director Paul Payne said that amounts to a 2.9 percent increase. About $182.8 million would go for police operations, an increase of about 3 percent. The budget proposal also includes $925,000 more for building demolition and about $866,000 more for affordable housing programs.

ST. LOUIS • Comptroller

Darlene Green on Tuesday accused Mayor Lyda Krewson and Aldermanic President Lewis Reed of trying to help the cause of privatizing St. Louis Lambert International Airport by delaying an airport bond refinancing plan. “They are attempting to make the operations of the airport look less than professional, less than capable, so a privatization in their eyes would make more sense,” Green said in an interview. “It is unconscionable.” Spokesmen for Krewson and Reed denied Green’s charge. Green, who says the bond refunding would save the city-owned airport more than $20 million in interest payments, spoke just after a contentious meeting of the city’s Board of Estimate and Apportionment. Green, who serves on the board with Krewson and Reed, had asked that the panel approve the refunding on Tuesday. Instead, they voted 2-1 to wait until the board’s next meeting April 29 to consider it. Green’s proposal also calls for assigning the interest savings to pay off a new set of airport bonds of around $24 million to be sold this year to finance other improvements at Lambert. Reed said that while the refunding sounds like a good idea that will save the city a lot of money, he hasn’t had time yet to review the lengthy proposal submitted Thursday. “It would be insulting to our citizens to force an

LeComb said in an email that he was not making any public statements beyond his letter. Prior to joining Stenger’s cabinet, LeComb had worked for 15 years as the public information manager for Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.

Apartment owner under pressure for violations BY JESSE BOGAN st. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • After numerous drug overdoses, police calls and complaints from the Clifton Heights neighborhood, city officials are pressuring the owner of Hampton Courtyard Apartments to close and clean up the problem property. “I need it to be empty, completely empty, and started again,” Assistant City Counselor Richard Sykora told the owner, Cuong Tran, during a meeting Monday that included police and neighbors. “The problem is,” Sykora added, “your building is a haven for criminal activity.” In addition to better tenant screening, Sykora said the 37-unit complex in the 2500 block of Hampton Avenue needs numerous repairs to address building code violations. He told Tran that he faced the possibility of having a hearing in 20 days to close the

meeting, which police said was not open to the public. On Tuesday, Tran, of south St. Louis County, didn’t return a call for comment. Sykora said in a prepared statement: “We are in discussions with Mr. Tran and his attorney, and exploring all remedies under the city’s Public Nuisance ordinance, building code and Trash Task Force enforcement.” In October 2018, the director of public safety determined that Hampton Courtyard Apartments was a nuisance for incidents that included: flourishing of weapons, domestic disturbances, shots fired, drug use and sales, assaults and other unruly behavior. According to a copy of the notice obtained through a public records request, a meeting was to be held in November with Tran, who was also supposed to “immediately initiate reasonable abatement measures.” Given the tone of Monday’s meeting, those measures apparently haven’t

been met. George Bell, 64, who attended the Monday meeting and owns property nearby, said he didn’t see any other option than closing the complex until the buildings were cleaned out and improved. “I don’t think Mr. Tran is in a position to do it unless he’s forced to do it,” he said. Tran also faces public nuisance notices for apartment complexes at 4200 Meramec Street, 4515 Gravois Avenue and 3923 Chippewa Street, officials said. On Tuesday afternoon, Jeffrey Garrison, 27, sat in a littered stairwell, smoking cigarettes. He said he and his fiancée were temporarily staying there until their tax refund arrived. As he scratched his arms, he said there are bedbugs. “It keeps us up all night,” he said. Tina Wampler, 52, a cashier and home health care provider, said she pays $500 a month for a onebedroom apartment there. She wasn’t aware that the complex faced being shut down, but she agreed it was time. “It’s gotten beyond ridiculous,” she said. She said she’s tried to get officials to help for a long time and recently reached out to state officials. Since she moved there in 2014, she said, about 10 people have died. According to city data, three died from opioid overdoses in 2016 alone. In 2018, Christine Floss, a professor at Washington University, also died there from an overdose. Wampler said Tran gets a lot of tenants from re-entry and drug rehab programs, which may explain why the phone number on the sign in front of the complex has been covered up. “He’ll go to these rehab places and get people because it’s guaranteed money,” she said.

Concerns over eminent domain UnitedHealth blasts jeopardize wind energy line Democrats’ plans By JaCK sUnTRUP and BRyCE GRay St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERsOn CITy • A plan to transmit wind energy into and through the state could be in jeopardy after the Missouri House gave initial approval on Tuesday to a measure that would forbid the project’s developer from using eminent domain to construct the line. The move comes a month after the Missouri Public Service Commission, which regulates utilities, deemed the Grain Belt Express transmission line in the public interest and granted the project “a certificate of convenience and necessity,” allowing the developer to use eminent domain in order to acquire easements for the project. The long-stalled line seeks to transmit Kansas wind energy through eight northern Missouri counties, through Illinois and Indiana, and to eastern states for consumption. The line would also deliver power to at least 350,000 Missourians and unlock energy savings of $12.8 million per year, based on contracts already reached with municipal utilities around the state.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

This 2008 photo shows wind turbines at the Harvest Wind Farm in Oliver Township, Mich.

After the PSC’s five commissioners appointed by multiple governors granted unanimous approval to the line, House Speaker Elijah Haahr, RSpringfield, said last month he would make the passage of a bill forbidding eminent domain for the project a priority. The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Jim Hansen, R-Frankford, bans eminent domain “for the purposes of constructing above-ground merchant lines.” “This is just another attempt by a private company and a government commission to eliminate our personal liberties,” Hansen said of the proj-

of ‘Medicare for All’

ect. “I am not opposed to green energy,” Hansen said. “I’m so opposed to a private company saying, ‘I’m going to do this and you’re going to like it — or else.’” Clean Line Energy Partners announced in November that it would sell rights to the transmission line to Chicago-based Invenergy. The PSC has yet to approve that sale. “We’re certainly opposed to anything that would slow, or work to slow, the benefits that the Grain Belt Express can bring to Missouri,” said Beth Conley, a spokesperson for Invenergy, who added that building the project would bring $500 million of direct investment and 1,500 jobs to the state, in addition to customer savings. “This project has been thoroughly vetted for more than five years by the Missouri PSC,” she said. “We feel good about that decision and their ability to adjudicate the case.” The proposal still must win final approval in the House before moving to the Senate for consideration. Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, has not taken a position on the measure.

BLOOMBERG

The biggest health insurer in the United States on Tuesday sharply criticized the “Medicare for All” proposals being debated by Democrats, wading into a heated Washington political debate that’s likely to dominate the 2020 presidential race and the conversation about the future of private health plans in America. For months, health insurers have kept mostly quiet about the proposal, the most-ambitious versions of which would replace privately financed health coverage with Medicare, the government program that covers about 60 million Americans, most elderly. On Tuesday, UnitedHealth Group’s chief executive officer said such proposals would amount to a “wholesale disruption of American health care.” As a source of coverage, UnitedHealth is almost as large as Medicare itself. It provides health insurance services to 49.7 million people, and last year recorded revenue of $226.2 billion. Along with insurance, it operates physician practices, sells consulting and data services, and administers drug benefits. It also covers millions of people in the privatesector versions of Medicare and Medicaid. Despite its immense size, the company has kept a relatively low profile with the wider public. Its quarterly earnings are typically buttoned-up events, treated as a financial indicator for other insurers who report later in the earnings season. Engaging in a political fight could turn it into a political target as Democrats look for winning issues. On Tuesday, UnitedHealth shares reversed their gains in pre-market trading after the company reported positive earnings. The shares fell 4 percent to close at $220.96. Other health

The legislation is House Bill 1062.

Vetting still open for possible Fed candidates REUTERs

WasHInGTOn • The White House is considering other possible candidates for the board of the Federal Reserve although President Donald Trump still backs his two potential nominees, Herman Cain and Stephen Moore, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday. Kudlow, speaking to reporters at the White House, added that Trump’s picks are still going through the nominating process for the seats on the U.S. central

bank’s board of governors. “We are talking to a number of candidates. We always do,” he said when asked if the White House was vetting alternates for Cain and Moore, whose controversial potential nominations have raised concerns among economists as well as some of Trump’s fellow Republicans. “We support (Stephen Moore). We support Herman Cain. We’ll just let things play out in the vetting,” he said. Despite the assurances, Kudlow’s comments could signal

the administration is increasingly open to other Fed nominees, amid a rising chorus of opposition to their nominations. The U.S. Senate must confirm any nominees, and Republicans control the chamber with 53 seats. But four of them have said they oppose Cain, a former pizza company chief executive, effectively sinking his nomination. Neither candidate’s name has been formally sent to the Senate, but Trump has pledged to do so.

care companies declined as well. Health insurance stocks have been rattled in the first few months of 2019 as Democratic presidential contenders have emerged to back variations of Medicare for All. The sell-off has sent the S&P 500 Managed Care Index to its lowest level in nearly a year, and managed-care stocks are now trading at a 15 percent discount to the broader market, based on price-to-earnings ratios. “The options are clear between a government-sponsored or government-run system and the one we have to offer,” UnitedHealth CEO Dave Wichmann said on a conference call with investors Tuesday. Wichmann said the costs of Medicare for All would “surely have a severe impact on the economy and jobs — all without fundamentally increasing access to care.” Contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, including Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, have called for government-run health care as a way of covering more people, calling it a “human right, not a privilege.” While there are many variations of the Medicare for All idea, in general it involves expanding the program from older Americans to the rest of the population. Some proposals would have Medicare as an option for people to buy into and compete with private insurers, while others would replace the entire private health insurance system with Medicare. “The path forward is to achieve universal coverage and it can be substantially reached through existing public and private platforms,” Wichmann said on the call, saying there should be a health system that “offers the access, choice and coverage protections people seek at a fair cost to the individual and society as a whole.”

Housing market gaining strength • Sentiment among U.S. homebuilders climbed to a six-month high in April, another indication that the housing market is gathering momentum. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index rose 1 point to 63 on improvements in present sales and buyer traffic, data released Tuesday showed. Readings over 50 indicate more builders view conditions as good than poor. Homebuyers are being aided by cooling mortgage rates, sustained wage gains, and a slower pace of home price appreciation. CVS fined for filling forged prescriptions • CVS Health agreed to pay $535,000 to resolve federal allegations that it filled dozens of Percocet prescriptions its pharmacists should have known were forged. The U.S. attorney for Rhode Island and the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New England office announced the penalty Tuesday. Federal officials say the forged prescriptions were filled at several Rhode Island locations between September 2015 and June 2017, in violation of the federal Controlled Substances Act. Walmart partners with Kidbox • Walmart launched a partnership Tuesday with Kidbox, an online styling service for children. The service offers an exclusive, curated style box that includes about five fashion items for $48, about 50 percent off the suggested retail price of the bundled items. Walmart customers complete a short style quiz for their

child on Walmart.com. Kidbox stylists tailor the selections based on style preferences, season and location. J&J profit slips but beats expectations • Lower sales overseas and higher costs for research and litigation pushed Johnson & Johnson’s first-quarter profit down 14 percent, but the health care giant beat profit and revenue expectations. Net income was $3.75 billion, or $1.39 per share, down from $4.37 billion, or $1.60 per share, a year earlier. Adjusted for research and development expenses and costs from ongoing litigation over its baby powder products, earnings were $2.10 per share, 7 cents better than Wall Street expected, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research. Revenue was $20.02 billion, with $10.24 billion of that coming from prescription drugs. Foxconn’s Gou stepping aside • The head of Foxconn Technology Group is planning to step away from day-to-day operations at the world’s largest electronics provider and said Tuesday that he is mulling a run for president of Taiwan. Terry Gou, 69, said if he decided to run, he would take part in the opposition Nationalist Party primary rather than mount an independent bid. The Nationalists favor closer ties with Beijing. Foxconn counts Apple, Google and Amazon as customers and has said it will build a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin. GM sued over Cadillac headlight defect • General Motors failed to warn U.S. drivers of a Cadillac sportutility vehicle about a defect that causes headlights to malfunction because moisture gets inside the glass, creating a safety hazard for more than 300,000 of the cars, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Detroit. Three plaintiffs in the federal suit are seeking class-action status, which would allow them to pursue claims on behalf of anyone who bought or leased Cadillac SRXs for model years 2010 to 2015. Exterior seals on the headlights erode prematurely, allowing moisture in and causing light beams to dim or fail, they said in the court filing. GM was aware of the faulty design, but its remedies were inadequate, the lawsuit alleges. From news services

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.59% on Tuesday. Yields affect rates on mortgages and other consumer loans.

Justice Department said to oppose wireless merger • The U.S. Justice Department has told T-Mobile US Inc. and Sprint Corp. that it opposes their planned $26 billion merger in its current form, Reuters reported Tuesday, citing a source familiar with the matter. It was unclear whether the government wants to kill the deal or is seeking specific concessions. Shares of both companies fell after the bell as investors bet the deal would be not be completed. The proposed merger had been criticized by consumer advocates and some lawmakers because it would reduce the number of national wireless carriers available to consumers from four to three.

Two beer brewers lock horns in court over keg technology BLOOMBERG

The world’s two biggest brewers are locked in a legal battle over the quest to serve a freshtapped taste in every mug. Anheuser-Busch InBev and Heineken are fighting over who invented key parts of a new way to deliver draft beer that allows for smaller batches and eliminates the need for traditional steel kegs, which use compressed air and can degrade flavor over time. The companies started the first of two patent-infringement trials on Tuesday over the technology at the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington. A-B InBev says it developed the beer canisters, while Heineken — whose case goes first — says it invented the dispenser equipment. Each is trying to keep the other out of the U.S. market to pro-

vide draft beer to smaller pubs and homes. “The bars used to put in big kegs of Bud Light and Coors Light, and they would sell so much of it that freshness was not an issue,” Sanford Bernstein analyst Trevor Stirling said. “Each individual brand is selling less. Now you need technology to protect the freshness longer even as you’re selling less.” Analysts say the $120 billion beer industry is getting more fragmented. Americans are drinking less beer but are willing to pay for better quality. The big brewers are struggling to maintain their market share as even craft brews are losing ground to wine and other spirits. The overall volume of beer sales has been declining over the past decade, though dollar sales have increased, according to market

researcher Euromonitor International. “Consumer interest is in the higher end of the product,” said Lester Jones, chief economist for the National Beer Wholesalers Association. “The way to package beer is to make it appear higher end.” Heineken’s case against A-B InBev is being heard first, with a trial expected to last through April 23. A-B InBev’s complaint is scheduled to be heard before a different judge, starting May 6. The judges are scheduled to issue their findings in September, with final decisions from the commission in January. “These two brewing companies are going to knock heads and get in each other’s way,“ said Jones. “New packages have become very important, and it gets people’s competitive juices forming.”

Big banks fight slump with consumer loans BLOOMBERG

The biggest U.S. banks have leaned on retail banking businesses to offset a prolonged slump in trading and drive record profits. Now comes the question of whether they can keep it up. The lenders, led by JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America, are delivering on the promise that the stockpiles of deposits they spent years attracting would pay off once the Federal Reserve started hiking rates. Analysts see two threats to the current run: a gentle plateauing of revenue growth as the Fed pauses, and a sharper spike in loan losses if the credit cycle turns. There were signs of each possibility in the first quarter’s stellar results. Bank of America said net interest income

growth will slow over the rest of this year; Wells Fargo predicted a decline. And three of the four largest lenders increased provisions to cover consumer loan losses, with Wells Fargo more than tripling the amount it set aside. The Fed’s four interest-rate increases last year and a relatively buoyant U.S. economy have boosted what banks can charge for loans, with the average rate the firms earned rising almost 0.5 percentage points in the past year. They’ve also so far been able to limit how much of the hikes they’ve passed on to depositors. JPMorgan has been the big winner, topping $5 billion in pretax profit from its consumer unit in the past three quarters after not once hitting that level in the previous five years. At Bank of America, the

consumer unit’s net interest income climbed 10 percent, helping propel the bank to record quarterly earnings. Those results came in spite of loan losses inching up. In Bank of America’s consumer unit, charge-offs climbed to $925 million. Credit losses at Citigroup’s giant credit card business jumped 9 percent from a year earlier. Banks largely expressed confidence that the increases meant losses were returning to a more normal level, rather than a sign that the economy is souring. “Just for the record, I want to be very clear — we don’t see any evidence of a recession,” Bank of America CFO Paul Donofrio said Tuesday. “In any event, if a recession were to come, we are very well prepared.”

The stench of hypocrisy Missouri GOP defends local control — unless a hog farm wants to move in.

T

he Missouri Legislature is considering two Republican measures that, together, would effectively yank away local authority on an array of agricultural issues, from regulation of big hog-farm odor to inspections of puppy mills. Regardless of the nuisance such operations pose, localities would have little or no say on their presence. No longer would the smell, pollution and unsightliness of inappropriately sited or poorly run operations be within local governments’ authority to control. No amount of complaining by residents would affect the ability of such operations to open up nearby. At what point will GOP legislators grasp the hypocrisy of condemning “big government” when it’s Washington telling states what to do, while they embrace big government’s powers in Jefferson City to whittle away local control? As the Post-Dispatch’s Jack Suntrup reported, the two pending bills are in response to local ordinances put in place because of what critics say is lax state regulation. One bill, Senate Bill 391, would prevent county governments from imposing rules on operations like hog farms that are “inconsistent with or more stringent” than state regulations. It would tie the hands of 20 Missouri counties that have enacted local ordinances against odors and downstream pollution from such operations. Opponents say the state regulations are inadequate; for example, they place no odor restrictions on any but the largest classification of hog farms. Those

farms are often owned by companies that have no ties to the local region, giving residents no leverage with them if authorities can’t enforce local ordinances. The other bill, House Bill 951, would remove authority of local officials to inspect dog breeding facilities and businesses that produce eggs, dairy or livestock, putting those inspections entirely under the purview of state and federal agriculture departments. Missouri has a sorry history of puppymill controversies. This bill would effectively prevent local officials from having any power over that issue, even though, critics say, the state still isn’t adequately addressing the problem. More broadly, it would effectively nullify local zoning powers when a poultry or livestock facility wants to move in. Together, the two bills would render local elected officials utter bystanders to what happens to the land, air and water in their own jurisdictions. “One (bill) is saying you can’t do a health ordinance,” noted Brian Smith of the Missouri Rural Crisis Center, “and the other is saying you can’t enforce a health ordinance.” Republicans tout a mantra of “local control” when it comes to education, health care, taxes and most other issues. One Missouri Republican has even pushed legislation to nullify federal gun laws within the state’s borders. Yet when it comes to favored Republican special interests like agriculture, locals are supposed to shut up and let Jefferson City dictate what they have to look at, smell and live with. That’s called hypocrisy — and it stinks.

Regarding “Voters sent MSD’s plan for flooding, erosion down the drain, so problems won’t end” (April 5): The recent Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District election result is not surprising. The publicity surrounding it was minimal. Also, year after, decade after decade, municipalities allow new construction that results in more and more rain absorption into land and trees being compromised. Recently, a new subdivision was created on Clayton Road just west of Highway 141. All the trees were cut down in order to maximize building sites, meaning profits, and the result was less natural ground and trees to absorb water runoff. This happens continually and in spite of local ordinances to the contrary, the problem continues unabated. Tom Harig • University City

Proposed abortion law is unrealistic for most women Here is the reality of the six-week abortion ban that is before the Missouri Legislature: Abortion would be illegal six weeks from the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period. That’s right, before many women know they are pregnant. Physicians started using the last menstrual period to measure length of pregnancy before ultrasound was available. Let’s say I usually have a 28-day cycle, which the majority of young women do not. Let’s also say I had a period that started on Jan. 1, and that I conceived around Jan. 14 (two weeks later by the last menstrual period) when I was most likely to be fertile. Perhaps my partner’s condom broke, I missed a pill or was on medication that weakened the birth control pills. Jan. 29 (four weeks by last menstrual period) comes and my period does not start. I chalk it up to stress. Or perhaps I am on a long-acting contraceptive and my periods are irregular. On Feb. 5 (five weeks by last menstrual period) I become concerned and purchase a pregnancy test, for which the directions say wait until I am two weeks late (that’s Feb. 12 — six weeks from last menstrual period — when abortion is banned). None of this takes into account my need to request time off work, find child care, travel to St. Louis to the only abortion care provider left in the state, and do it again three days later to satisfy Missouri’s waiting period — the longest in the country. The cost for abortion-related care is about $550. Medicaid does not cover it and many cannot afford it. I am proud to volunteer for the Gateway Women’s Access Fund that helps women cover the cost.

The April 4 editorial “Elections can’t fix pressing problems unless voters go to the polls” said less than 14,000 people voted in the Ferguson-Florissant School Board Election. This statement is correct but not accurate. According to the election results in the Post-Dispatch, 13,001 people voted for the three candidates. Since each voter was allowed two votes in the cumulative system I think the turnout is even more dismal than you stated. Assuming most voters used both their votes, the number of voters is probably closer to 7,000. Winning candidate Sheila PowellWalker is correct that “cumulative voting is not going to fix people not coming out to the polls.” Nick Hall • Florissant

Blunt’s investment in children is smart move for our country Children don’t vote, and they don’t donate to political candidates. In other words, they often don’t have a voice with elected officials. Fortunately, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt understands the need to advocate on behalf of children. He spoke at Save the Children’s recent advocacy summit in Washington, D.C., urging hundreds of advocates from Missouri and across the country to tell their elected officials why we must invest in kids. The advocates were on Capitol Hill to ask members of Congress to support legislation to address what are called “child care deserts,” communities where child care options are few and far between. In Missouri, 54 percent of all residents live in a child care desert. The Child Care Workforce and Facilities Act would provide grants to states to enable them to create their own, state-specific plan to address these child care deserts. I am grateful to be able to work in close partnership with Sen. Blunt. He knows that children may only be 20 percent of our population, but they are 100 percent of our future. Investments in our kids are the best ones we as a country can make. Mark K. Shriver • Bethesda, Md. Save the Children senior vice president, U.S. Programs & Advocacy

Gun rights must be balanced against current gun violence I was born and reared in St. Louis and lived in Detroit for over 11 years as an adult, so I know crime and gun violence. The Second Amendment, our right to bear arms, is one of the bedrocks of our country. And our right to bear arms is killing us. We cannot ignore the rates of gun violence in this country compared to other developed nations. We are at the very top. By the proponents of owning any and all sorts of weapons, it is most generally touted that owning these weapons allows them to defend their property. Do these people sleep with their weapon? Because if a robber broke into their house in the middle of the night and he was armed, the gun owner would not have time to retrieve a weapon locked in a case.

Tragedy is like the burning of a great stone book Despite devastation at Notre Dame, much endures and will be rebuilt. BY ALEXANDRA PETRI

A great book is burning, one of the greatest ever written. That an edifice like Notre Dame Cathedral could survive so much and then, in an instant, by accident, be engulfed in flames and devastated in a matter of hours causes, in 2019, a sensation Petri that is at once harrowing and dully familiar. We assume that things are durable because they have lasted. But in the words of G.K. Chesterton, “to be breakable is not the same thing as to be perishable. Strike a glass and it will not endure an instant; simply do not strike it, and it will endure a thousand years.”

“A vast symphony in stone,” wrote Victor Hugo of Notre Dame in his novel of the same name. “The colossal work of a man and of a nation,” he continued, “combining unity with complexity ... a sort of human Creation, in short, mighty and prolific as the Divine Creation, of which it seems to have caught the double character, variety and eternity.” Yet, strangely, Hugo’s contention was that the book had killed the cathedral. The cathedral had been the form for the preservation of human thought for centuries. “In those ages, whoever was born a poet,” Hugo wrote, “became an architect.”

To Hugo, the cathedral, with its heavy towers and its soaring spire leaping weightlessly heavenwards, was a book in which, over the course of two centuries of construction, builders and masons and architects and worshippers had inscribed their thoughts. Passersby and worshippers could read their hopes and see the spots that marked their transit from birth to oblivion. Their labor wrote sentences in the stone, paragraphs; it built a cathedral. It was not merely a sermon in stone; it was a symphony, made up of innumerable voices. Time is a distance that can be traversed by places that remain powerfully still. Like the moon visible from two distant points at once, Notre Dame is a rare edifice that is fixed, on which our eyes can meet across the expanse of time, that we can discuss with those

long dead. Mark Twain marveled at the carvings on its facade, writing in 1869’s “The Innocents Abroad” that “These battered and broken-nosed old fellows saw many and many a cavalcade of mail-clad knights come marching home from Holy Land; they heard the bells above them toll the signal for the St. Bartholomew’s Massacre, and they saw the slaughter that followed; later they saw the Reign of Terror, the carnage of the Revolution, the overthrow of a king, the coronation of two Napoleons ... and they may possibly continue to stand there until they see the Napoleon dynasty swept away and the banners of a great republic floating above its ruins.” Things last because they acquire new meaning and they continue to acquire new meaning because they last. This is a source

of optimism. We can only travel so far across time, these artifacts inform us, but it is possible to send words into the void, written in ink or in pixels or in stone. To build is always an act of hope, of faith that the unexpected good will continue to happen. Yet so much does endure. We begin to forget what a miracle it is that anything is here — a church, a forest, a system of government. Perhaps the fragility of the durable should be more readily apparent. Nothing is so instantly and painfully scarce as that which used to seem ubiquitous and permanent. The cathedral looms permanently over the city; it is almost too obvious. You need not capture something so present. Then in an instant the permanent vanishes, and the ephemera is what endures. This is why Hugo thought the book would destroy

the cathedral.“Now, what immortality is more precarious than that of a manuscript? But a building is quite another book, a substantial and durable one.” Yet the book has not destroyed the cathedral. It has helped save it, has helped make it worth preserving.“In printed form thought is more imperishable than ever: it is volatile, intangible, indestructible; it is in the air we breathe. In the days of architecture, thought became a mountain, and boldly possessed itself of an age or a place. Now it becomes a flock of birds that scatter themselves unto the four winds of heaven, and occupy at once every point of air and space.” And in it, once more, we find the cathedral, preserved in ink, ready to be rebuilt.

First responders need consolidated pensions Reforms are essential to better serve police and firefighters in Illinois. BY BRAD COLE AND ED HAGNAUER

Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee (from left), D-Texas, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attend a rally March 8 outside the Capitol ahead of passage of the For the People Act, a bill that aims to expand voting rights and strengthen ethics rules.

Trump is a threat to religious freedom The president’s attacks on followers of certain faiths should be seen as dangerous to all faiths. MICHAEL GERSON Washington Post

So another norm of public decency falls, like a historical building demolished to make way for one of Donald Trump’s tasteless towers. When the president of the United States goes after an American Muslim — in this case Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who came to the U.S. as a Somali refugee — using images of the 9/11 attacks, it is cruel, frightening and dangerous in new ways. It is cruel because Trump essentially delivered his political rant while standing on desecrated graves. The images he employed not only included burning buildings but burning human beings, drafted into a sad and sordid political ploy. Is nothing sacred to Trump? When said aloud, the question sounds like an absurdity. Trump has never given the slightest indication of propriety, respect or reverence. His narcissism leaves no room to honor other people or to honor other gods. Both the living and the dead matter only as servants to the cause of Trump himself. This cruelty extends to those who have fled war in Syria. Barack Obama did little to serve their interests. Now, the victims of violence are treated as villains in Trump’s fictional version of global threats. Syrian refugees, according to Trump, are “trying to take over our children and convince them how wonderful ISIS is, and how wonderful Islam is.” On the strength of such calumnies, Trump has essentially destroyed America’s asylum system. This has led to a frightening

state of affairs. By all the evidence, Trump is an anti-Muslim bigot. At one campaign event in 2015, a member of the audience stated, “We have a problem in this country; it’s called Muslims.” And he went on to ask, “When can we get rid of them?” Trump responded: “We’re going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.” Imagine a normal politician on the left or right being asked about the possibility of getting rid of all the Christians, or getting rid of all the Jews. They would likely use such a moment to clarify that they aren’t, in fact, insanely prejudiced monsters. Trump used such a moment to affirm the instinct of mass deportation and to promise a range of other anti-Muslim actions. Could this have been a slip of the tongue? No, it wasn’t. Trump has a long history of animus — raw animus — against one of the Abrahamic faiths. He has said, “We’re having problems with the Muslims.” And: “There is a Muslim problem in the world.” And: “The United Kingdom is trying hard to disguise their massive Muslim problem.” And: “Islam hates us.” The Koran, in Trump’s scholarly opinion, “teaches some very negative vibe.” He has claimed: “You have people coming out of mosques with hatred and death in their eyes.” He once called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” He has variously and publicly considered the closing of mosques, warrantless searches, and the creation of a national database to track Muslims. In Trump’s view, “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before.” The president claims to have seen “thousands and thousands”

of American Muslims cheering on 9/11 when the towers fell — a lie and a libel. He attacked a Muslim Gold Star mother, claiming that she “wasn’t allowed” to speak at the Democratic convention because of her faith — a lie and a libel. He has praised Gen. John Pershing for executing Muslim insurgents in the Philippines with bullets dipped in pig’s blood — a historical myth, but a revealing fantasy of anti-Muslim war crimes. By all the evidence, Trump believes that Islam is incompatible with American ideals and that Muslims are, as a group, threatening to American security. This is not only rank religious bigotry; it is the attitude most likely to alienate some Muslims from American ideals and turn a dangerous few toward radicalism and violence. None of this requires us to believe that Omar is a wise or thoughtful public figure. She isn’t. She traffics in the worst anti-Semitic tropes. But Trump’s perception of religious liberty as freedom only for the faiths he prefers is a potential threat to every religious group. What if some future leader views Mormonism as incompatible with American democracy, or evangelical Protestantism? By what principle would Trump supporters be able to criticize discrimination against such groups? Religious freedom is either rigorously equal, or it becomes an instrument of those in power to favor or disfavor religions of their choice. And those believers who are currently in favor may someday discover what disfavor is like. Michael Gerson michaelgerson@washpost.com Copyright The Washington Post

The state of Illinois is failing its police and firefighters. With pension costs rising and municipalities struggling to keep up, lawmakers must consider a solution that will benefit public servants and taxpayers: consolidating the state’s downstate public safety pension funds into one fund. Illinois currently has more than 650 individual police and firefighter pension funds. Each fund is governed by a five-member board, meaning there are nearly 3,300 pension fund trustees across the state. Each board has its own accountants, financial consultants, actuaries, investment managers and attorneys, all of which divert funds away from the primary purpose: paying pension benefits. With all these bureaucratic redundancies we must ask: Who wins under this current system? It certainly isn’t police and firefighters, who are seeing lower returns on their retirement investments. Smaller funds are unable to generate the same sort of returns that larger funds with more diverse portfolios yield. Additionally, since these funds are each governed by individual boards, more money is being spent on managerial costs. To put it simply, these smaller funds are spending more money on administrative costs, all while generating lower returns. This system isn’t benefiting taxpayers, who continue to pick up the slack for underfunded pension funds. Illinoisans already face high property taxes, but they continue to watch their property taxes and sales taxes rise in an effort to shore up these funds. And it isn’t helping local communities, which have already felt the weight of cuts to municipal revenue and added costs of unfunded mandates passed down by the state. In many municipalities across the state, important programs have been cut, services have been eliminated and layoffs have occurred. This leaves our communities paying more for fewer services. The Illinois Municipal League has joined with mayors to propose several options that provide varying degrees of consolidation. The best plan calls for the state to reform and consolidate these funds into a single downstate fund, which will be modeled after the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF). This fund is considered the gold standard in Illinois because

it is the second-largest and best-funded pension fund in the state, providing pensions for non-uniformed public employees. The Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund is comprised of a single board of eight elected members and employs a professional staff to provide the most comprehensive benefits, disability determinations and investment expertise while cutting down on redundant costs. This fund is set up to deliver on promised benefits, which should be the goal for all pension funds. There is no reason why the same cannot be achieved for police and firefighter pensions. Consolidating those funds into a single, downstate fund similar to IMRF would cut out unnecessary middlemen, create greater efficiencies and generate better returns. This reform is needed in order to provide for the men and women who protect us every day. As a state, we cannot allow these pension funds to carry on in a way that has left public safety employees receiving less for their retirement. Despite the numerous advantages that would come with consolidated pension funds, opponents claim a larger statewide fund would take local control away from communities. But often times local pension fund trustees do not possess the medical and financial expertise needed to make disability determinations, pension benefit and investment decisions. A statewide board would be able to deliver fair and equal treatment to every participant while simultaneously delivering efficient investment management to every taxpayer in Illinois. There is no doubt that action needs to be taken at the statehouse. That is why Gov. J.B. Pritzker recently created the Pension Consolidation Feasibility Taskforce. This serves as an important first step to addressing the most important issue facing municipalities across the state, and we applaud him for his leadership on the issue. But action cannot stop there. We encourage lawmakers to proceed with needed reform of our state’s pensions and to recognize the numerous advantages that consolidation brings. For any readers who are still unsure, we will ask again: How do retirees, taxpayers and communities benefit from more than 650 redundant pension systems? They don’t. Brad Cole is executive director of the Illinois Municipal League, and Ed Hagnauer is the mayor of Granite City.

Ty’Andra Williams, 30, was charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child along with third-degree assault and trespassing on a school bus. Tiffany Pruitt, 32, who police say aided in the attack, was charged with third-degree assault. Police say the school bus driver was transporting students from KIPP Victory Academy elementary school Thursday afternoon when two students got into a fight, and the driver transferred one of the children to a different bus. When the driver later arrived at a stop in the 900 block of O’Fallon Street, the transferred child’s mother, Williams, got angry and boarded the bus, court documents say. Williams then repeatedly beat the driver, at one point grabbing a squeegee that was on the bus and hitting the driver with it, according to the documents. Pruitt allegedly helped the attack by holding the bus door open and helping Williams drag the driver off the bus, charges allege. The charges say Williams threw the driver to the ground and continued to beat her, causing injuries. The driver was employed by bus company First Student, charges say. The attack was captured on video and quickly spread on social media. Williams’ bail was set at $20,000, cash only, by Judge Thomas McCarthy. Pruitt had not yet been taken into custody, according to St. Louis police. “We can’t stand by and allow the good people who serve our children to be treated with such violence and contempt for doing their jobs,” said a statement from St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Kimberly M. Gardner’s office. The office asked anyone with more information on the attack to contact prosecutors or St. Louis police.

she was on her way to check on another officer, police said. The officer’s vehicle had lights and sirens on and was crossing through the intersection of St. Charles Rock Road and Ashby Road about 9 a.m. when a car struck the patrol car in a T-bone crash, said St. Ann Police Chief Aaron Jimenez. The officer was alert and appeared to be stable but had serious injuries, Jimenez said. The other driver was also transported to a hospital with injuries.

Johnson, a stranger to the girl, put his hands on the girl’s waist, grabbed her arm and told her “‘Come with me, follow me home’ while attempting to remove victim from the property,” police said in a probable cause statement. Bail for Johnson was set at $150,000 cash. CLAYTON > Commerce Bank held up • A man walked into a Commerce Bank branch at the intersection of Clayton Road and DeMun Avenue about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday and presented a semi-automatic handgun, demanding cash from a teller, police said.

CAHOKIA > Argument leads to shooting death • A man was gunned down in a dispute outside a home in Cahokia on Tuesday morning. Police Chief David Landmann said officers quickly took a suspect into custody. The dead man is 24, Landmann said. Neither the victim nor the suspect’s name had been released. Landmann said the shooting was at 6:40 a.m. Tuesday in the 700 block of St. Nicholas Drive, near Camp Jackson Road. “There was a dispute between two males and some gunfire,” the chief said. Landmann didn’t say if both men fired shots. He also didn’t say what they fought over except to say it was a “personal dispute” and not a random attack.

Pepper-sprayed inmate partly dug out his eye, suit says BY ROBERT PATRICK st. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. CHARLES • A jail inmate with medical and mental conditions partly clawed out his own eye in 2017 after being peppersprayed by staff, a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday says. The suit says that Wentzville and St. Charles County police were either aware or should have been aware of Jamie Leonard’s medical condition, Reit-

er’s syndrome, which had caused painful eye inflammation called uveitis, the suit says. Both also knew that Leonard needed to be monitored and restrained due to an unspecified mental health condition, the suit says. A county spokeswoman declined to comment on the suit, saying the county had not been served. Leonard had been in Wentzville police custody

Parks boosters want to pump up planned bike trail with private funds BY JACK SUNTRUP st. Louis Post-dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • The

Missouri House on Tuesday endorsed the creation of a private endowment that would help fund a proposed 144-mile bike trail across the state. Ameren and the Department of Natural Resources are negotiating the donation of a former rail line that an Ameren subsidiary owns, but the DNR has raised concerns about the cost of running what would be known as the Rock Island Trail. The former rail line, stretching from Beaufort in Franklin County to Windsor in western Missouri, would resemble the Katy Trail, another former rail line popular with hikers and cyclists. The two trails would meet at Windsor. A voter-approved sales tax funds state parks, and those resources are already spread thin, said Rep. David Wood, R-Versailles, whose district would include the trail. He said the private money would help offset costs to the state. “We don’t want to put any further strain on the sales tax that goes to state parks,” he said. “We want to maintain the ones (parks) that we have. This provides us a little bit of control with that.” Wood said communities in his area are hoping to scoop up tourism revenue that would likely come with the addition of a new state park. Rep. Kip Kendrick, DColumbia, said the benefits would be similar to those that accompanied the Katy Trail’s construction in the 1980s and 1990s.

on July 19, 2017, after experiencing a psychotic hallucination, the suit says. Leonard’s mother told police and jail staff that he needed medical treatment and a psychological evaluation, but was ignored, the suit says. On July 22, guards tried to search his cell and pepper-sprayed Leonard when he didn’t comply with their orders, the suit says. Leonard was not medically treated for 40 min-

utes, and began banging his head and clawing at his eye before partly digging it out due to the “great pain and his worsening mental state,” the suit says. Leonard has since lost the eye. A lieutenant told Leonard’s mother that they were unaware of his medical problems, the suit says. The suit names St. Charles County police, county jail staff, including medical staff, and the Department of Corrections.

The suit says it is not clear whether some of those mentioned in the lawsuit worked for police or the jail. It seeks unspecified compensation for excessive use of force and other alleged constitutional violations. Court records show that Leonard, now 34, of the 1000 block of Silo Bend Drive, was arrested for trespassing in a woman’s Wentzville home in the 3100 block of Bear View Court on July 19, 2017.

party respects the Supreme Court’s decision, “which clears up a gray area.”

JEFFERSON CITY > Missouri Supreme Court says lieutenant governor can remain in office • The court rejected a Democratic-led effort to nullify Gov. Mike Parson’s appointment of Mike Kehoe as lieutenant governor. Parson had held the $83,000-per-year post until he became governor when Eric Greitens resigned last year. In the lawsuit, the Missouri Democratic Party sought to require that the lieutenant governor position be filled only by election. Legal experts and lawmakers had disagreed on whether a Missouri governor has the power to fill the vacancy. The court said a governor’s authority to appoint a lieutenant governor is based on the state constitution, which says, “The governor shall fill all vacancies in public offices unless otherwise provided by law.” No law addressed this situation. Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director Lauren Gepford said the

JEFFERSON CITY > Governor has more than $3 million in campaign fund • More than half a million dollars poured into Gov. Mike Parson’s campaign fund during the first three months of 2019, signaling that the Republican is gearing up to run for a full term in 2020. Reports filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission show Parson raised $198,931 in his personal campaign account. Uniting Missouri, a separate political action committee not controlled by Parson, raised $354,156. That left the governor and his allies with $3.4 million in cash, with nearly one-third of that coming from retired St. Louis financier Rex Sinquefield. Although Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft has been mentioned as a potential primary rival, fundraising numbers submitted by the Republican show he had $206,000 in his campaign account on April 1 after raising $95,700.

to be a drug overdose, the sheriff added. He was taken by paramedics to a hospital, where he was deemed fit for confinement, Pelton said. “Investigators are still determining the facts to this incident,” the sheriff’s release said. “However, there is nothing indicating that authorities should be searching for anybody else.”

JEFFERSON CITY > Term limits measure advances • All of Missouri’s statewide elected officials would be subject to term limits under legislation advancing in the Missouri Legislature. By a 31-3 vote Tuesday, the Senate approved calling for a constitutional amendment limiting top officials to two four-year terms in office. Those limits are already in place for the governor and treasurer, but not for the lieutenant governor, secretary of state, auditor and attorney general. The proposal was sponsored by Sen. Tony Luetkemeyer, R-Parkville, who received significant campaign funds in his 2018 election bid from a national group that pushes for term limits. Washington-based U.S. Term Limits Inc. gave $450,000 to the Missouri Senate Conservatives Fund, which then passed the money along to Luetkemeyer’s campaign. Under federal tax rules, U.S. Term Limits does not have to reveal its donors. If approved by the House, the proposal would be placed on the ballot for

“I imagine a lot of communities, especially in rural Missouri, would be interested in seeing some of the economic development that could happen,” Kendrick said. Lawmakers attached language authorizing the endowment onto another piece of legislation dealing with state parks concessionaires. The underlying bill must still win final approval in the House before moving to the Senate for consideration. If the trail is not constructed, donations to the fund would be returned to their donor, according to Wood’s amendment. In January, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the Missouri Central Railroad, an Ameren subsidiary, asked the U.S. Surface Transportation Board for a 180-day negotiation extension in talks over the donation. Though the two sides said they had made “substantial progress” in negotiating a trail use agreement, the state and the railroad noted the “extreme complexity” of converting the line in their request. The proposed trail crosses 10 counties. “It’s going to take a long time to complete this project,” Wood said Tuesday. “I don’t know that I’ll be able to ride a bicycle by the time it’s done, but it will make one of the longest, contiguous bike trails in the world because it does connect to the Katy.”

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Motorcyclist badly injured • A motorcyclist was critically injured Monday when he crashed on Interstate 70 in St. Louis. Police said Tuesday they don’t know who the man is. He was hospitalized in critical condition and was unstable. The crash was at 7:16 p.m. Monday on I-70 near Carrie Avenue. The motorcyclist was heading west, approaching Carrie, when he started to lose control, police say. His 2006 Honda motorcycle went onto the shoulder, hit a curb several times and rolled onto the

FRANKLIN COUNTY > Woman is shot dead; man is arrested • A woman was shot dead in a home Monday night near Villa Ridge, and police say a man apparently overdosing on drugs was arrested in connection with her death. Brian S. Hensley, 51, of Villa Ridge, was charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action. Bail was set at $500,000, cash only. The name and age of the victim hadn’t been released. Police say she was shot once. Deputies were called to the home in the 100 block of Ajax Avenue, east of Villa Ridge, about 11 p.m. Monday after getting a report someone had died there. They found her body. Police then backed away from the home because they thought someone else might be inside. For the next several hours, police say, negotiators tried unsuccessfully to contact anyone inside. A deputy later saw Hensley lying down inside the home. Hensley “didn’t move at all for several minutes and only then slowly,” Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton said in a news release. The deputy thought Hensley might be another victim, so police went inside and found him suffering from what they believed

GASCONADE COUNTY, MO. > Barrel found to contain human remains • Human remains were found inside a plastic barrel pulled from the Gasconade River west of the St. Louis area, officials say. Members of the Gasconade County sheriff’s office removed the barrel from the river Friday with the help of the Missouri Highway Patrol’s marine division. It was determined to be “suspicious,” authorities said. The remains were discovered in the barrel Monday. The sheriff’s office said the barrel had been lodged on the side of a boat ramp at the river access in Gasconade. The city of about 200 is near Hermann, about 75 miles west of St. Louis. The barrel was taken to the Boone County medical examiner’s office, where the human remains were discovered Monday. Authorities continue to investigate the identity of the remains and the cause of death. In an interview with the Post-Dispatch, Gasconade County Sheriff John

CLAYTON > Hazelwood mayor quits charter commission • Hazelwood Mayor Matthew G. Robinson resigned April 11 from the St. Louis County Charter Commission, saying he would have to take too much time off work to serve effectively. Robinson is the second of two appointees by St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger to resign from the commission, which was created to review and recommend changes to county government. Robinson could not be reached to comment Tuesday at Hazelwood City Hall. Another Stenger appointee, Ron Watermon, resigned in February after other commissioners said they were upset that he failed to disclose in the commission’s first meeting that he was working for the St. Louis city-county merger advocacy group Better Together.

Romanus declined to say if the remains were those of a child or adult. He also wouldn’t say how police were led to the barrel. He said he has several investigators on the case. “We’re working on it diligently to try to get the answers that we’re all wondering,” he said. He said investigators are “looking at several missing person cases.” Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 573-486-2424 or the dispatch center 573-4377770. ST. LOUIS > Men sentenced in kickback scheme • Two men who defrauded an East St. Louis company were sentenced Monday to 366 days in prison and ordered to repay $746,923, the U.S. attorney’s office said. Bobby J. Woods, 56, of Stillwater, Minn., and Alan Johnson, 64, of Collinsville, each pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and admitted their role in a longterm kickback scheme. Prosecutors have said the scheme ran from 2008 to 2014, when Johnson retired as plant manager of BMI, an industrial manufacturing company. Woods sold BMI equipment at inflated prices and paid over $167,000 in kickbacks to Johnson, prosecutors said. Woods owned a company called Controls Plus.

Aid from Red Cross arrives in Venezuela ASSOCIATED PRESS

CARACAS, VENEZUELA • The

first shipment of humanitarian aid from the Red Cross arrived in Venezuela on Tuesday, delivering medicine and supplies for needy patients in a country whose president has long denied the existence of a humanitarian crisis. Workers in blue vests helped load boxes with the Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies emblem onto trucks while leaders with the organization pleaded for officials to keep the aid out of the nation’s political dispute. “It will be distributed in conformance with the fundamental principles of our movement, especially neutrality, impartiality and independence,” said Mario Villarroel, president of the Venezuelan Red Cross. “Don’t allow the politicization of this great achievement.” The delivery of international humanitarian aid has become a focal point in Venezuela’s power struggle, now in its third month after opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself interim president. Both the opposition and the government have been accused of politicizing the nation’s crisis, which rights groups

People wait Tuesday to be given water containers and purification tablets during aid disbursement from the Red Cross in Caracas, Venezuela. A political crisis has led to shortages of food and medicine.

say continues to cost lives as hospitals struggle to provide even basic care. Guaidó has rallied the international community and collected several hundred tons of aid, primarily from the United States, at the border in Colombia. But President Nicolás Maduro has previously refused to allow it in. In February, state security forces blocked border bridges and repressed opposition leaders trying

to deliver the shipments. “We aren’t beggars,” Maduro said in justifying his denial. But as hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets protesting his rule this year, Maduro has been pressed to address the nation’s shortages of essential goods like food and medicine. He’s selectively chosen to accept aid from allies like China, framing it as a necessary measure to confront U.S. eco-

Poland, U.S. discuss building base as deterrent to Russian aggression BY JENNIFER JACOBS, JUSTIN SINK, NICK WADHAMS AND MAREK STRZELECKI Bloomberg

Poland is nearing a deal with the U.S. to establish an American military base in the former Communist bloc country, according to people familiar with the matter — an outpost the Poles see as a deterrent to Russian aggression and that the Kremlin would likely consider a provocation. If a deal is reached, President Donald Trump is considering traveling to Poland in the fall, in part to commemorate the agreement. But it’s unclear whether he fully supports the idea, even after he said during a September meeting with Polish President Andrzsej Duda that the U.S. was looking “very seriously” at establishing a base. Duda remains committed to contribute $2 billion for its construction. Trump has often criticized NATO allies for not spending enough toward their own defense, and he’s considered demanding that countries hosting U.S. forces pay the full cost of the bases, plus as much as a 50 percent premium for the privilege, according to people familiar with the matter. But the American president has an affinity for Poland, a NATO member whose government has repeatedly clashed with European Union leaders in Brussels over rule-of-law issues. Duda has employed Trump-style, anti-migrant and nationalist rhetoric. Trump stopped in Warsaw in July 2017 to deliver a speech before attending a Group of 20 summit in Hamburg. The U.S. now rotates about 4,000 troops in and out of Poland. Rather than immediately begin building a base, that arrangement could be bolstered, according to a

person familiar with the White House’s thinking. The plan is being considered in what’s known as an inter-agency process led by the Defense Department with input from Bolton, the national security adviser, the people said. “The United States and Poland are engaged in ongoing discussions on the status of forces, and we have nothing to announce at this time,” Garrett Marquis, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said in an email. A spokesman for Duda said that talks are progressing but declined to comment further. One person familiar with the matter described the outstanding issues as largely technical matters, such as how many more U.S. troops would be sent to Poland, where precisely they’d be located and what equipment they’d bring with them. Polish leaders have been eager to increase the U.S. presence in their country and have asked American officials for the permanent stationing of a full Army brigade. Like many eastern European states, the Poles grew more wary of Russian territorial aspirations after the Kremlin annexed Crimea from neighboring Ukraine in 2014. After the Crimea episode, the U.S. and allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization established a constant, but fluctuating, rotation of troops in Poland. The Poles have argued for a permanent, costlier plan, including a headquarters. The idea of permanently stationing U.S. troops in Poland could prompt opposition from European allies chagrined by the country’s turn toward autocracy, including a revamping of the judiciary that critics say would subordinate courts to politicians.

nomic sanctions. The delivery of any aid is tacit recognition that his country is indeed in the throes of a humanitarian crisis, a notion he has long dismissed as opposition propaganda. In recent years, an estimated 3.7 million people have fled the South American nation for neighboring countries like Colombia, many seeking health care for everything from minor infections to cancer treatment they can no longer obtain. Hospitals in Venezuela often operate without essential supplies, asking patients to bring in surgical gear and medicine. A recent report by Human Rights Watch in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health concluded Venezuela’s health system is in “utter collapse.” It cited increased levels of maternal and infant mortality, the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases and high levels of child malnutrition. “The combination of medicine shortages and food shortages, together with the spread of diseases across Venezuela’s borders, amounts to a complex humanitarian emergency,” the report states.

Trump to allow suits over U.S. properties seized in Cuba BY DEB RIECHMANN AND MICHAEL WEISSENSTEIN associated Press

WASHINGTON • Stepping up pressure on Cuba, the administration of President Donald Trump will allow lawsuits against foreign companies doing business in properties seized from Americans after the island’s 1959 revolution, a senior administration official said Tuesday. The move marks a change in more than two decades of U.S. policy on Cuba. The new policy against Havana could deal a severe blow to Cuba’s efforts to draw foreign investment, and spawn international trade disputes between the U.S. and Europe. The 1996 Helms-Burton Act gave Americans the right to sue the mostly European companies that operate out of hotels, tobacco factories, distilleries and other properties that Cuba nationalized after Fidel Castro took power. The act even allows lawsuits by Cubans who became U.S. citizens years after their properties were taken. Canada, France, Spain, Great Britain and other countries with large investments in Cuba have ferociously protested the law and threatened to sue in the World Trade Organization if Washington tries to interfere with the business ties between Cuba and another sovereign nations. Every U.S. president since Bill Clinton has suspended the key clause to avoid those trade clashes. The announcement comes at a moment of severe economic weakness for Cuba, which is struggling to find enough cash to import basic food and other supplies following a drop in aid from Venezuela, and a string of bad years in other key economic sectors.

Kim Jong Un getting ready for first summit with Putin BY JIHYE LEE Bloomberg

Russia is preparing for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s first summit with President Vladimir Putin, setting the stage for consultations between the longtime allies after Kim’s nuclear talks with the U.S. broke down. Russian officials told a South Korean diplomatic delegation visiting Moscow this week

that plans were being made for a summit but offered no details on a time or place, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said Tuesday. South Korea’s Maeil Business Newspaper reported Tuesday that Putin and Kim’s summit will likely take place April 24 in Vladivostok, before Putin’s April 2627 visit to Beijing to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping. South Korea’s Vice Foreign Minister Cho Hyun met with

Russian First Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Vladimir Titov. Cho told reporters both men thought the collapsed February summit between Kim and President Donald Trump in Hanoi “was not a failure” and that denuclearization talks should be pursued, South Korea’s Yonhap News reported. Russia, which wields veto power on the United Nations Security Council, has expressed repeated support for the reduction

of sanctions that have crippled North Korea’s economy. It would be Kim’s first visit to Russia since taking power in 2011, as he calls for an end to the sanctions intended to punish North Korea for its nuclear arms program. The severity of those penalties was a major factor in the collapse of his summit with Trump, who wants Kim to make greater disarmament commitments before receiving economic rewards.

DIGEST Israel expels Human Rights Watch director An Israeli court has ordered the deportation of Human Rights Watch’s local director and ordered him to leave the country within two weeks. The Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday cited his ongoing support of boycotts of Israel during his time in the country. Israel’s interior minister ordered Shakir’s deportation last year, calling him a “boycott activist,” a claim Human Rights Watch and Shakir denied. Israel enacted a law in 2017 barring entry to any foreigner who “knowingly issues a public call for boycotting Israel.” Mexico trying to block migrant caravan • Authorities in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas have tried to block a caravan of about 2,000 Central American migrants from entering the town of Huixtla. The Huixtla government declared an emergency Monday night and told stores to close. The migrants streamed in anyway. Members of the caravan pushed past police and headed for the town center. Officials told residents to stay indoors. The town’s cold reception contrasts with the warm welcome it gave to caravans just last year. Iran names U.S. forces terrorists • Iran’s lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a bill labeling U.S. forces in the Middle East as terrorists, a day after the U.S. terrorism designation for Iran’s Revolutionary Guard formally took effect, state TV reported. Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami introduced the bill authorizing the government to act firmly in response to “terrorist actions” by U.S. forces. It demands authorities use “legal, political and diplomatic” measures to neutralize the American move, without elaborating. Bahrain sentences 69 to life on terrorism charges • A Bahraini court sentenced 69 people to life in prison and revoked the citizenship of 138 defendants on terrorism-related charges, the public prosecutor said Tuesday, in one of the largest mass trials ever held in the country. It also marked the single largest revocation of citizenship in Bahrain, a small islandnation off the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula that hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. Critics say authorities in Bahrain have increasingly used a law allowing the government to withdraw Bahraini citizenship from people charged with terrorism-related activities to also target political activists and human rights advocates. 960 measles case registered in North Macedonia • North Macedonia’s health authorities have declared a nationwide measles epidemic in the small Balkan country after more than 960 cases were registered since the beginning of this year. In response, officials said unvaccinated children will not be admitted to day care centers, and additional resources would be made available for vaccination programs. Health authorities had earlier warned the public of the risks of popular antivaccination campaigns in North Macedonia. According to the Public Health Institute, more than 11,000 preschool children have not been vaccinated and three babies have died due to complications from the disease. From news services

FDA halts sales of pelvic mesh The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday ordered manufacturers of surgical mesh used for certain pelvic procedures to immediately halt sales of the products. The agency said the companies, Boston Scientific and Coloplast, had not demonstrated “a reasonable assurance” of safety and effectiveness for the devices. The mesh is used for the transvaginal repair of a condition called pelvic organ prolapse, which occurs when the muscles and tissues supporting the uterus, bladder or rectum become weak or loose. NY county bars unvaccinated from public places • Officials trying to contain a measles outbreak on Tuesday ordered all unvaccinated people exposed to the disease barred from public gathering places for up to three weeks. The order, issued by Rockland County, N.Y., comes a day after New York City closed a preschool over noncompliance with measles vaccine requirements. Rockland announced the new tactics after an earlier order banning all unvaccinated children from indoor public places was halted by a judge. The county is appealing that ruling. Zinke working for mining firm seeking approvals • Former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has a new job: a more than $100,000-a-year post with a gold-mining firm that’s pursuing project approvals involving the federal agency that Zinke left fewer than four months ago. Zinke said Tuesday that his work for Nevada-based U.S. Gold Corp., which focuses on mining exploration and development, would not constitute lobbying. But that company’s CEO cited Zinke’s “excellent relationship”

with the Bureau of Land Management and the Interior Department in explaining his hiring. One of the firm’s mining projects is on land controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, which is under the Interior Department. A 2017 order by President Donald Trump says executive branch appointees cannot lobby their former agency for at least five years after leaving their government post. Separately, criminal statutes impose one and twoyear bans on various kinds of communications between senior federal officials and their former agency. Trump vetoes Yemen resolution • President Donald Trump on Tuesday vetoed a resolution that would have ended U.S. support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen. “This resolution is an unnecessary, dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities, endangering the lives of American citizens and brave service members, both today and in the future,” Trump said in a statement. The measure had passed the House on a 247-to-175 vote this month and was approved by the Senate last month. Colorado revamps oil, gas rules • Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on Tuesday signed into law a major overhaul of state oil and gas rules, turning the focus away from encouraging production and directing regulators to make public safety and the environment their top priority. The law also gives local government significant new authority to restrict the location of wells. Cole proceedings at Guantanamo Bay tossed • A panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit threw out Tuesday more than three years of proceedings by a military court in Guantanamo

Bay in the case against the alleged mastermind of the 2000 bombing of the guided missile destroyer Cole.

In a unanimous decision, the panel ruled that former military judge Vance Spath “created a disqualifying

appearance of partiality” by pursuing a position as an immigration judge while overseeing the case.

In a season with plenty of ups and downs — mostly downs — Robby Fabbri found himself back in the lineup for the Blues Tuesday night. Fabbri moved into a spot on the fourth line for Game 4 of the Blues-Jets series, replacing Zach Sanford, who had seen minimal ice time in two of the first three games. Sanford played 6:30 in Game 1 and 5:09 in Game 3, getting only one shift in the third period.

Ex-teammates drop in on Mizzou spring game

BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

MILWAUKEE • The Cardinals thought they had taken care of that Christian Yelich thing. They retired him not once, but twice in the third inning Tuesday night at Miller Park. Now, if you’re doing the math, that means Milwaukee had at least 10 hitters come to the plate in that inning. The Brewers, in fact, had 11 batsmen. Three of them were left on base when Yelich struck out to end the inning. Five others scored as the Brewers kick-started their way to an 8-4 rout of the Cardinals, See CARDINALS • Page B5

Blues fall at home to Jets once again

Jets continue to carry the play in series

JEFF GORDON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Playing for Owen Sound in the Ontario Hockey League, Jordan Binnington lost his first game in junior hockey 9-3. It was not a career-defining moment and he recovered from that. On Sunday night at Enterprise Center, Binnington was shelled for six goals in the Stanley Cup playoffs by the explosive Winnipeg Jets. The Jets had gone from scoring one goal in Game 1, to three in Game 2, and then the six-pack in Game 3. Had they figured him out? See BLUES • Page B7

The Blues are struggling with an identity crisis. The trouble started with their messy 6-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets that turned the series against them. “That wasn’t us, from the start,” Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said afterward. “That’s not our game tonight,” concurred coach Craig Berube after his team remained oddly The Blues’ Pat Maroon tries to knock the puck past Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck, but is stopped with the help of the Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien during the third period Tuesday night.

BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

MILWAUKEE • The Cardinals thought they had taken care of that Christian Yelich thing. They retired him not once, but twice in the third inning Tuesday night at Miller Park. Now, if you’re doing the math, that means Milwaukee had at least 10 hitters come to the plate in that inning. The Brewers, in fact, had 11 batsmen. Three of them were left on base when Yelich struck out to end the inning. Five others scored as the Brewers kick-started their way to an 8-4 rout of the Cardinals, See CARDINALS • Page B5

DIGEST

With one 15-second video clip sent on social media shortly after midnight and five simple words, Russell Wilson put to rest any questions about his long-term future. No more speculation about Wilson wanting to play elsewhere. No more rumblings of a bigger market for Wilson to call home. “Seattle, we have a deal,” Wilson said in the video early Tuesday morning. They were words Seahawks fans had waited to hear since Seattle’s playoff loss to Dallas in January, though it had seemed increasingly unlikely as the days ticked away toward Wilson’s deadline to have a deal done by the end of the first day of offseason workouts. But they did strike a deal, one that makes Wilson the highestpaid player in the NFL and gives Seattle the chance to build a competitive roster around its star quarterback. “Russell’s goal and his hope was that he would continue his career with the Seahawks and continue to bring championships to this town,” Wilson’s agent, Mark Rodgers, said. “He believes there is still unfinished business, and he is looking forward to pursuing that without having to worry about contracts and his future.” Wilson’s $140 million, fouryear extension puts him at the top of the NFL salary food chain for now. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per season. He has the highest signing bonus ($65 million) and guaranteed money ($107 million) in league history. And for good measure, Wilson also got Seattle to agree to a notrade clause.

With a $140 million extension, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson will make $35 million per season, the most of any NFL player.

Wilson, 30, had set a midnight Monday deadline for a new deal with Seattle. He wanted certainty about his contract before the team got into its offseason workout program, which began Monday. Wilson showed up for the first day and by the end of the night was sending social media into a frenzy after posting the video of him and his wife, Ciara, announcing the agreement. Wilson’s per year average tops Aaron Rodgers’ average annual salary of $33.5 million as part of the $134 million extension he signed last year with the Green Bay Packers. Wilson’s previous $87.6 million, four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season. Patriots sign Demaryius Thomas • New England has signed veteran receiver Demaryius Thomas, who the team hopes can replace the output of Chris Hogan after he signed with the Carolina Panthers. Thomas, 31, played eight full seasons in Denver, winning a Super Bowl ring with the Broncos in

the 2015 season. He was traded to Houston last October and released in February. Bears’ Zach Miller retires • Chicago tight end Zach Miller is retiring at age 34 after nearly losing his left leg on a gruesome play two years ago. Miller had nine surgeries to address his injuries after he dislocated his knee and tore an artery in New Orleans in 2017. He had left open the possibility of playing again up until announcing his retirement Tuesday. Miller finishes his career with 146 receptions for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns in 66 games. No punishment for Fournette • Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has no plans to punish running back Leonard Fournette following his arrest last week for driving with a suspended license. Marrone made it clear Tuesday that Fournette made a mistake, saying “a law was broken,” but added that the team would have no further discipline for the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Virginia’s Guy to enter draft but could return Virginia scoring leader Kyle Guy says he is entering the NBA draft. The junior guard announced his plans on Instagram Tuesday, adding he is leaving open the option of returning to school. Guy was named the most outstanding player in this year’s Final Four and is the third member of the national championship team to enter the draft. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard led the Cavaliers in scoring, averaging 15.4 points per game and in 3-pointers with 120. Guy will sign with an agent, but has until May 29 to decide whether to leave school or return. Herro to remain in draft • Kentucky guard Tyler Herro says he plans to remain in the NBA draft after initially leaving open the possibility of returning to school. The 6-foot-5 freshman announced his decision in a news release Tuesday. Herro was the Wildcats’ No. 2 scorer, averaging 14 points per game. He joins teammate PJ Washington in leaving school early for the draft. Barcelona, Ajax advance • Lionel Messi scored two early goals to send host Barcelona into the Champions League semifinals for the first time in four seasons with a comfortable 3-0 win over Manchester United on Tuesday. After Barcelona withstood some early pressure from United, Messi ended any hopes of a comeback for the Premier League side as the hosts advanced 4-0 on aggregate. In Milan, Ajax eliminated another one of the favorites as it won 2-1 at Juventus on Tuesday to reach the semifinals for the first time since 1997 and end Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of a fourth straight title. Having already seen off Real Madrid in the previous round, Ajax showed no fear against Ronaldo and the Italian giant either, advancing 3-2 on aggregate after dominating much of the game. Horse deaths to be investigated • Los Angeles County’s top prosecutor says she’s formed a task force to investigate 23 horse deaths at Santa Anita Park between December and March. District Attorney Jackie Lacey said the task force of prosecutors and peace officers will “determine whether unlawful conduct or conditions affected the welfare and safety” of the horses. Lacey’s office had said its investigators would work with the California Horse Racing Board as that body looks into the deaths. Santa Anita says it’s cooperating and “is fully committed to modernizing our sport in a way that prioritizes the welfare and safety of horses above all.” Big ratings for Masters finale • An average of 10.8 million people watched the CBS coverage of the final round of the Masters as Tiger Woods got his first victory in a major in 11 years. CBS said in a release that it was the most-watched morning golf broadcast since 1987, which is the earliest data the network has. The final round was moved up five hours to 9 a.m. EDT Sunday because of the threat of inclement weather. The afternoon encore presentation averaged 4.5 million. The previous high for a morning golf broadcast, according to Nielsen, was 8.56 million for ABC’s telecast of the 2000 British Open, which was won by Woods at St. Andrews Djokovic advances • Two-time champion Novak Djokovic struggled with his serve at times but reached the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters with a scrappy 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win over Philipp Kohlschreiber on Tuesday in Monaco. Also Tuesday, three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka faltered in his second-round match against last year’s French Open semifinalist Marco Cecchinato after leading by a set and a break, losing 0-6, 7-5, 6-3 to the Italian.

quarterback had a worthy alibi. Five special guests, also Tigers but a different breed, had traveled 800 miles to visit with their former teammate. Clemson football receivers Tee Higgins, Diondre Overton and Cornell Powell, linebacker Isaiah Simmons and defensive lineman Jordan Williams made the long journey to Columbia to catch Bryant’s first Mizzou dress rehearsal and support the player who guided them to a conference championship and College Football Playoff appearance

two years ago. Their presence said as much about Bryant’s impact at Clemson as anything he did on the field. “Clemson brought all of us together,” Powell later told the Post-Dispatch, “but friendship, brotherhood and loyalty keeps us there.” Among the estimated crowd of 18,000, the former teammates watched Bryant’s abbreviated debut produce middling results speckled with glimpses of promise for the 2019 Mizzou offense. After 15 spring practices, did the Tigers answer every ques-

1. KELLY IN COMMAND It didn’t take long for Bryant to win over his new teammates, almost as quickly as he secured the starting quarterback job. Offensive coordinator Derek Dooley hasn’t completely overhauled his offensive system but has added wrinkles to suit Bryant’s strengths, especially as a runner. Bryant ran the ball only three times in Saturday’s scrimmage while completing 12 of 17 passes for 150 yards, including his first eight attempts. He displayed patience in the pocket on drop-backs and comfort on the run on sprint-outs and Kelly Bryant scrambles. He distributed the ball evenly from sideline to sideline, completing throws to six different targets on just four possessions. “He’s a better passer than I thought he was,” receiver Jalen Knox said. 2. DEFENSIVE TWEAKS Former Texas Tech coordinator David Gibbs settled in as Odom’s cornerbacks coach, freeing up coordinator Ryan Walters to handle the safeties instead of the entire secondary. As for position battles, the tightest competition looks to be at strong safety, where seniors Ronnell Perkins and Khalil Oliver rotated during the spring game. The place where Mizzou needs more production is defensive end. Akial Byers was the most productive edge linemen late last season, but he spent more time at defensive tackle during the spring. He’s versatile enough to play all four positions across the front, but the more time he spends inside the more Mizzou can play sophomore ends Trajan Jeffcoat and Jatorian Hansford. 3. SPECIAL TEAMS UNDER REVIEW In the department of “some things never change,” two kickers each missed a 27-yard field goal to spoil promising drives in the red zone Saturday. After watching so many special teams gaffes last fall, Odom put an extra emphasis on the kicking game this spring, delegating more roles for assistant coaches to work alongside special teams coordinator Andy Hill. “Through the course of the spring our (special) teams were better,” Odom said Saturday. “Our coverage teams were better. In our return units in punt return and kickoff we made fundamental changes there that helped us. We’ve got to get better. Over the course from start to finish we got better, but we didn’t look good today.”

tion hovering over Barry Odom’s fourth season in charge? Not exactly, especially not the great unknown: Will the NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee overturn Mizzou’s postseason ban? That answer won’t unfold for months, perhaps not until after the season’s first kickoff Aug. 31 at Wyoming. Spring practices are complete, but preparation for the season will continue behind the scenes for the next four months. Until then, let’s revisit the five storylines that greeted the start of spring practices.

4. PLENTY OF PLAYMAKERS Bryant didn’t have his full reservoir of playmakers in Saturday’s game as slot receiver Johnathon Johnson was nursing a sore hamstring and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam spent the spring easing back from last season’s shoulder injury. Both are preseason All-SEC candidates, with Okwuegbunam likely to show up on All-America lists. In their absence, Knox and graduate transfer Jonathan Nance asserted themselves as MU’s top outside receivers. The player who stood out was former walk-on Barrett Banister, who was Bryant’s top target in the spring game and showed why the staff put him on scholarship this offseason. 5. SANCTIONS LOOMING As part of the team’s NCAA sanctions, Odom’s seniors are free to transfer schools up until the start of the fall semester without having to sit out the 2019 season. But ask any of the seniors if they’ll entertain that option and you’ll get looks ranging from dubious to annoyed to ornery. Some seemed downright insulted when asked if they’d consider leaving Mizzou. Those who decided to stay — so far, no seniors have announced plans to transfer — followed the lead of Bryant, the newcomer who’s spent the last few months finding the balance between fitting in and standing out. “He made sure we know he’s 100 percent here for us, especially after (the sanctions) came out,” starting center Trystan Colon-Castillo said. “Schools were hitting him up and wanting him to leave, but the first thing he told us right after that happened was, ‘I’m not leaving.’ That’s big time for a guy like that to step up and tell the whole team that, especially when he just got here.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

After 15 spring practices, did the Tigers answer every ques-

1. KELLY IN COMMAND It didn’t take long for Bryant to win over his new teammates, almost as quickly as he secured the starting quarterback job. Offensive coordinator Derek Dooley hasn’t completely overhauled his offensive system but has added wrinkles to suit Bryant’s strengths, especially as a runner. Bryant ran the ball only three times in Saturday’s scrimmage while completing 12 of 17 passes for 150 yards, including his first eight attempts. He displayed patience in the pocket on drop-backs and comfort on the run on sprint-outs and Kelly Bryant scrambles. He distributed the ball evenly from sideline to sideline, completing throws to six different targets on just four possessions. “He’s a better passer than I thought he was,” receiver Jalen Knox said. 2. DEFENSIVE TWEAKS Former Texas Tech coordinator David Gibbs settled in as Odom’s cornerbacks coach, freeing up coordinator Ryan Walters to handle the safeties instead of the entire secondary. As for position battles, the tightest competition looks to be at strong safety, where seniors Ronnell Perkins and Khalil Oliver rotated during the spring game. The place where Mizzou needs more production is defensive end. Akial Byers was the most productive edge linemen late last season, but he spent more time at defensive tackle during the spring. He’s versatile enough to play all four positions across the front, but the more time he spends inside the more Mizzou can play sophomore ends Trajan Jeffcoat and Jatorian Hansford. 3. SPECIAL TEAMS UNDER REVIEW In the department of “some things never change,” two kickers each missed a 27-yard field goal to spoil promising drives in the red zone Saturday. After watching so many special teams gaffes last fall, Odom put an extra emphasis on the kicking game this spring, delegating more roles for assistant coaches to work alongside special teams coordinator Andy Hill. “Through the course of the spring our (special) teams were better,” Odom said Saturday. “Our coverage teams were better. In our return units in punt return and kickoff we made fundamental changes there that helped us. We’ve got to get better. Over the course from start to finish we got better, but we didn’t look good today.”

tion hovering over Barry Odom’s fourth season in charge? Not exactly, especially not the great unknown: Will the NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee overturn Mizzou’s postseason ban? That answer won’t unfold for months, perhaps not until after the season’s first kickoff Aug. 31 at Wyoming. Spring practices are complete, but preparation for the season will continue behind the scenes for the next four months. Until then, let’s revisit the five storylines that greeted the start of spring practices.

4. PLENTY OF PLAYMAKERS Bryant didn’t have his full reservoir of playmakers in Saturday’s game as slot receiver Johnathon Johnson was nursing a sore hamstring and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam spent the spring easing back from last season’s shoulder injury. Both are preseason All-SEC candidates, with Okwuegbunam likely to show up on All-America lists. In their absence, Knox and graduate transfer Jonathan Nance asserted themselves as MU’s top outside receivers. The player who stood out was former walk-on Barrett Banister, who was Bryant’s top target in the spring game and showed why the staff put him on scholarship this offseason. 5. SANCTIONS LOOMING As part of the team’s NCAA sanctions, Odom’s seniors are free to transfer schools up until the start of the fall semester without having to sit out the 2019 season. But ask any of the seniors if they’ll entertain that option and you’ll get looks ranging from dubious to annoyed to ornery. Some seemed downright insulted when asked if they’d consider leaving Mizzou. Those who decided to stay — so far, no seniors have announced plans to transfer — followed the lead of Bryant, the newcomer who’s spent the last few months finding the balance between fitting in and standing out. “He made sure we know he’s 100 percent here for us, especially after (the sanctions) came out,” starting center Trystan Colon-Castillo said. “Schools were hitting him up and wanting him to leave, but the first thing he told us right after that happened was, ‘I’m not leaving.’ That’s big time for a guy like that to step up and tell the whole team that, especially when he just got here.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

MLB is investigating racist messages to Cubs’ Edwards

Major League Baseball is investigating racist messages sent to Chicago Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr. on Instagram this month. Edwards was optioned to Triple-A Iowa after he got off to a tough start this season. Lee Long, Edwards’ agent, said the messages came from a couple different people. “I’ve known CJ for a long time and while he has mentioned being upset at social media attacks in the past, the recent incidents are completely beyond normal fan frustration,” Long said Tuesday. “No player should be expected to bear such personal attacks especially based on the color of their skin.” Theo Epstein, the president of baseball operations for the Cubs, condemned the content of the messages and said the club supports MLB’s investigation, which was first reported by The Athletic. “In a sport that celebrates diversity and unites people from all backgrounds, we are appalled anyone claiming to be a fan would send divisive and bigoted insults to a player,” Epstein said in a statement. The 27-year-old Edwards, who is black, declined comment through a spokeswoman for the Iowa Cubs. “It doesn’t surprise me, but then on top of that you have to really understand that whomever this came from, I really believe it’s a vocal minority,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said before their game in Miami. Edwards was selected by Texas in the 48th round of the 2011 draft. The wiry righty was traded to Chicago in July 2013. Edwards helped the Cubs win the World Series in 2016. He went 3-2 with a careerlow 2.60 ERA in 58 games last year.

Red Sox swap catchers • The Boston Red Sox are hoping to recharge their pitching staff by changing the battery. Catcher Blake Swihart, once a top prospect and promising piece for Boston’s future, was designated for assignment, and veteran Sandy León was called up. The World Series champs are just 6-11 coming into a two-game series at Yankee Stadium, mostly because of pitching. The club’s starters entered Tuesday with a 7.18 ERA, worst in the majors. The entire staff has a 5.93 ERA, ranking 28th out of 30 major league teams. Yankees’ Bird back on shelf • The latest addition to the Yankees’ injured list is all too familiar with life on the shelf. First baseman Greg Bird went on the 10-day injured list with a left plantar fascia tear, giving New York a dozen players on the IL less than three weeks into the season. Bird will be in a boot for 10 to 14 days before being re-evaluated, and manager Aaron Boone expects the lefthanded hitter will miss at least a month. Breakout slugger Luke Voit (Lafayette High) will get most of the reps at first base in the meantime.

Kawhi Leonard scored 37 points, Kyle Lowry bounced back from a scoreless playoff opener with 22 and the host Toronto Raptors routed the Orlando Magic 111-82 on Tuesday night, evening their Eastern Conference first-round series at one win apiece. Pascal Siakam had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors, who never trailed and led by as many as 34. Game 3 is Friday night in Orlando. Despite playing in foul trouble for much of the night, Leonard finished with a career playoff-high 15 field goals. He made his first nine attempts from inside the arc before missing a layup. He shot 15 for 22 before leaving to a standing ovation with 4:46 remaining and Toronto ahead 104-73. Leonard’s career playoff high is 43, set with San Antonio against Memphis on April 22, 2017. He made 14 baskets in that game. Lowry, who missed all seven attempts in Game 1, shot 8 for 13 and added seven assists. Aaron Gordon scored 20 points, Terrence Ross had 15 and Evan Fournier 10 for the Magic, who won Saturday’s Game 1 104-101 on a tiebreaking 3 by D.J. Augustin with 4.2 seconds to go. Nikola Vucevic, who shot 3 for 14 in Game 1, struggled again in Game 2, going 3 of 7 and scoring six points. Augustin, who had 25 points Saturday, shot 1 for 6. Seven of his nine points came at the free throw line. Orlando didn’t score for almost five minutes to start the game, missing its first six shot attempts and four straight free throws. The drought ended when Gordon rebounded and scored on Vucevic’s miss from the line at 7:14 of the first, answering an 11-0 Toronto run. Leonard scored 12 points in the opening quarter as the Raptors led 26-18 after one.

Lowry scored 11 points in the second and Siakam added six, putting Toronto up 51-39 at halftime. Orlando shot 13 for 40 in the opening two quarters. Leonard connected of seven of nine attempts in the third, scoring 17 points. The Raptors took a 90-66 lead into the fourth.

NOTEBOOK Cousins has torn quad • DeMarcus Cousins has a torn left quadriceps muscle that will sideline the Golden State center indefinitely, a devastating injury that the Warriors feared was serious when he went down in the first quarter Monday in their first-round playoff loss to the Clippers. An MRI exam Tuesday morning on Cousins’ left leg revealed the tear. The two-time defending NBA champion Warriors said Cousins will begin rehabilitation immediately and updates will be “provided as appropriate.”

NBA PLAYOFF SCHEDULE Rays’ Snell breaks toe • The Tampa Bay Rays have placed ace lefthander Blake Snell on the 10-day injured list after he broke a toe on his right foot while he was at home Sunday night. The 26-year-old Snell got hurt when he got out of the shower and then attempted to move a large granite item. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner says it was a “really dumb” move. Snell is 2-1 with a 2.16 ERA in four starts this season.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects more than 30 million men in the U.S. It is especially common in men with prostate surgery, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. However, it is now possible to treat almost all men with ED! ED undermines a man’s sexual confidence - but successful treatment can help restore it! Many ED treatments are covered by insurance and prescription plans.

ROUNDUP

Wednesday’s pitching matchups

Quintana goes seven as Cubs beat Marlins Jose Quintana gave up six hits in seven innings to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 4-0 victory over the host Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Quintana (2-1) struck out seven and extended his scoreless innings streak to 14. The lefthander didn’t allow a runner to reach second until Austin Dean’s two-out double in the seventh. Javier Baez went 3 for 4 and hit his fifth homer, a solo shot to the opposite field off Adam Conley in the eighth. Baez has three hits in each of his last three games. The Cubs took a 1-0 lead on Daniel Descalso’s single in the third and pushed across another run in the fourth on David Bote’s RBI groundout. Miami starter Pablo Lopez (1-3) allowed two runs, five hits, struck out six and walked one in five innings. Phillies 14, Mets 3 • Scott Kingery and J.T. Realmuto each had three hits and five RBIs as Philadelphia won in New York. Kingery and Maikel Franco hit three-run homers and Realmuto had a pair of tworun doubles in a 10-run first inning. Realmuto also went deep for the Phillies in the fourth. Giants 7, Nationals 3 • Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt and Steven Duggar homered off fastballs from Stephen Strasburg and light-hitting San Francisco powered past host Washington. The Giants entered the game with 10 homers through their first 17 games. They won for the fourth time in five games. D’backs 9, Braves 6 • Christian Walker homered leading off the ninth inning and visiting Arizona rallied against the shaky Atlanta bullpen.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Yankees 8, Red Sox 0 • James Paxton struck out 12 in his first stab at baseball’s biggest rivalry, Red Sox ace Chris Sale found his fastball but not better results, and New York beat Boston 8-0 on Tuesday night in the first game this season between the struggling AL East foes. Rays 4, Orioles 2 • Tyler Glasnow allowed two runs over seven innings in winning his fourth consecutive start to begin the season and Avisail Garcia drove in three runs as host Tampa Bay beat Baltimore. Rangers 5, Angels 0 • Mike Minor threw a threehitter for his first career shutout while Joey Gallo and Asdrubal Cabrera hit tworun homers as Texas beat visiting Los Angeles. Blue Jays 6, Twins 5 • Teoscar Hernandez hit a two-out single in the seventh inning, delivering the go-ahead hit for the second straight game, as Toronto won in Minnesota. White Sox 5, Royals 1 • Yoan Moncada hit a pair of solo shots for his first multihomer game and Leury Garcia added a two-run drive to power Chicago past visiting Kansas City.

INTERLEAGUE Pirates 5, Tigers 3 • Starling Marte hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to lift Pittsburgh to a victory in Detroit. Associated Press

Jose Quintana gave up six hits in seven innings to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 4-0 victory over the host Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Quintana (2-1) struck out seven and extended his scoreless innings streak to 14. The lefthander didn’t allow a runner to reach second until Austin Dean’s two-out double in the seventh. Javier Baez went 3 for 4 and hit his fifth homer, a solo shot to the opposite field off Adam Conley in the eighth. Baez has three hits in each of his last three games. The Cubs took a 1-0 lead on Daniel Descalso’s single in the third and pushed across another run in the fourth on David Bote’s RBI groundout. Miami starter Pablo Lopez (1-3) allowed two runs, five hits, struck out six and walked one in five innings.

Munoz, Gallegos are back; Robinson makes quick exit BY RICK HUMMEL st. Louis Post-dispatch

MILWAUKEE • Mike Mayers’ right shoulder injury is about what was expected. But Cardinals outfielder Tyler O’Neill’s right elbow ailment appears at least a bit more serious than what was assumed Monday night, although O’Neill said he wasn’t concerned. Both Mayers and O’Neill were placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday as the Cardinals made a flurry of moves, which also included optioning utilityman Drew Robinson back to Memphis, from where he had come just the day before. Robinson struck out twice in three at-bats after replacing O’Neill on Monday night, so the new center fielder for Tuesday night’s game was the old center fielder, Dexter Fowler, who hadn’t started in center since 2017 for the Cardinals. Utilityman Yairo Munoz, who was on a regular option, was eligible to come up earlier because of O’Neill’s injury. Righthander Giovanny Gallegos, who had been optioned to Memphis after the Mexico trip but who still was with the team, is back on the roster.

HELSLEY MAKES DEBUT The new face is that of righthander Ryan Helsley, who made his major league debut Tuesday night in relief. Helsley, a fifth-round draft pick in 2015 from Northeastern (Okla.) State, had started twice for Memphis, allowing three runs in seven innings. Capable of throwing as high as 100 mph with movement, Helsley hadn’t pitched since Friday, so he was available immediately for relief roles. Helsley had his own injury problems last year when he was limited to 13 minor league games because of shoulder tendinitis. Were it not for that, Helsley probably would have been in the majors sooner. “That was definitely frustrating,” Helsley said. “But it was part of God’s plan.” For now, Helsley will be in the bullpen. General manager Michael Girsch suggested he might stay there. “He throws hard,” Girsch said, “and when he’s in the bullpen, he’s going to throw even harder.” MAYERS WILL BE OUT ‘WEEKS’ Mayers, who felt a cramping in his shoul-

der Monday while pitching to Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich, who subsequently hit one of his three homers, was diagnosed with a lat strain, which would seem to put him out for several weeks, at least. “Significant,” Girsch said of the injury, although he added it didn’t seem to be as serious as that which put Alex Reyes out for the season after May 30 last year. “But we’re not talking 10 days. We’re talking weeks,” Girsch said. “Now is that a few? Or a bunch? I don’t know yet.” O’Neill, who uncorked a terribly wild throw to the plate in the second inning Monday, was found to have an elbow ulnar nerve subluxation, which involves misalignment of vertebrae. O’Neill considered it the “day to day” category and said he felt better Tuesday. On Monday, he said he had lost some feeling in his forearm. “I knew something wasn’t right,” he said. “But I’m not really worried about it.”

ADVICE ON YELICH Manager Mike Shildt, asked if he had found any “magic solution” not only for getting Yelich out but for keeping him in the park, said, “I’ve had one or a hundred suggestions. You wake up and the great aunt you never knew existed had a comment.” What that was, Shildt said, he would keep to himself. “It’s family,” he said. “Or somewhat family.” Shildt said he and his staff had considered the possibility that Dakota Hudson, who was tagged for a second time by the Brewers on Monday, might be tipping his pitches. “We always look at that,” Shildt said. “Look, I don’t want to take anything away from Christian Yelich, at all. I don’t know if it’s happening or not. But we are looking at it. There’s no question about it, we’re looking at it. But I’m not in any way, at this moment, accusing anybody of doing it.” Yelich had seven homers in the first five games the teams have played this season — all of them here — and has knocked in 21 runs in the last seven games the teams have played over the past two seasons. GREGERSON ON MOVE AGAIN Veteran reliever Luke Gregerson, recovering from a shoulder problem, finished up the second leg of his injury rehabilitation assignment at Class AA Springfield on Tuesday. “He’s been effective, so far,” Girsch said. Gregerson has yielded just one hit and hasn’t walked anybody while striking out six.

The Cardinals’ Jack Flaherty rubs up a new ball after giving up a two-run home run to the Brewers’ Yasmani Grandal during the third inning.

Flaherty falters, but Gallegos shines in relief for Cardinals CARDINALS • FROM B1

taking their fifth win in six games against their National League Central Division rivals. But you really didn’t think Yelich, the 2018 league Most Valuable Player, had nothing at all to do with this. How do you think the Brewers’ other three runs were produced? Yelich, greeting rookie Ryan Helsley, making his major league debut, launched his eighth homer in six games here against the Cardinals this season. That gave him 18 runs batted in against the Cardinals — three per game — and 24 in eight games dating back to two games in St. Louis in September last year. He has homered in his last seven games against the Cardinals in which he has had an official at-bat. Jack Flaherty, having perhaps the worst start of his young career, allowed nine hits in 2 2/3 innings, including a solo homer by Lorenzo Cain and a two-run shot by Yasmani Grandal in the third inning. Giovanny Gallegos, back in the majors after a paper trail had him on the Memphis roster for a day, was brilliant in relief, fanning Yelich and four others in two in-

nings. After Gallegos allowed his second hit in the fifth, he was lifted for Helsley, who was called in to face ... the dreaded Yelich. But, after that encounter, Helsley found his footing and, throwing pitches as fast as 100 and 101 mph, set down the Brewers in order in the sixth and seventh, striking out four. And then, batting for the first time, he showed speed on the bases, too, by legging out an infield hit in the seventh. Helsley was rubbed out in an historic play. Matt Carpenter grounded into a double play, something he hadn’t done since Sept. 4, 2017 at San Diego. Carpenter went 691 at-bats and 825 plate appearances between double plays. Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong both knocked in runs in the eighth but the Cardinals stranded two runners when pinch hitter Jedd Gyorko was called out on strikes. Flaherty, at least, kept Yelich in the park in the first inning, albeit allowing a single to right on a full-count knuckle curve. Flaherty threw every pitch in his bag during the at-bat — four-seam fastball, slider, knuckle curve and changeup.

The Brewers’ Brandon Woodruff slides into second base safely past the tag of the Cardinals’ Paul DeJong after hitting a two-run double.

Yelich finished the inning at first base as Flaherty struck out Ryan Braun and fielded Mike Moustaskas’ popup himself. Flaherty pitched around two singles in the Brewers’ second but Cain hopped on a Flaherty slider and drove it over the leftfield wall for his second homer of the season to open the scoring in the third. The Brewers weren’t done.

With one out, Ryan Braun dribbled a grounder off the glove of charging third baseman Matt Carpenter and the ball rolled into left field for a double. With two out, Flaherty misplaced another slider and Grandal sent it high and far over the left field for a homer to make it 3-0. Still the Brewers weren’t done. Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar singled with two out and Orlando

Arcia walked to fill the bases for Brandon Woodruff, an outstanding hitting pitcher. Another bad slider ensued and Woodruff, who was five for five at that point, doubled home two runs to swell the lead to 5-0 and finish Flaherty for Gallegos. Flaherty’s short start marked the 11th time in 17 games a Cardinals starter had failed to go more than five innings. Flaherty has contributed three of those starts, Miles Mikolas three, Dakota Hudson three and veterans Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright one apiece. The two homers allowed by Flaherty (1-1) marked only the second time in 21 road starts he had allowed more than one. In six games here this season, the Brewers have hit 16 homers against the Cardinals, with the roof closed on every occasion when the ball travels farther, much farther in many instances. Rain and cold are forecast for Wednesday afternoon, meaning the roof will be closed again. But the Cardinals’ offense hasn’t done badly here either, banging 12 homers in six games.

That three-run drive gave him 18 runs batted in against the Cardinals and 24 in eight games dating back to two games in St. Louis in September last year. He has homered in the last seven games against the Cardinals in which he has had an official at-bat. Jack Flaherty, having perhaps the worst start of his young career, allowed nine hits in 2 2/3 innings, including a solo homer by Lorenzo Cain and a two-run shot by Yasmani Grandal in the third inning. Giovanny Gallegos, back in the majors after a paper trail had him on the Memphis roster for a day, was brilliant in relief, fanning Yelich and four others in two innings. After Gallegos allowed his

second hit in the fifth, he was lifted for Cherokee Nation product Helsley, who was called in to face ... the dreaded Yelich. “We put Helsley right in the fire,” said manager Mike Shildt. “People will say you could have walked him to get to (Ryan) Braun. But what are you really going to tell a guy that comes to the big leagues — that (he) is not good enough to pitch to a good hitter? I’m not going to send a message to a guy making his major-league debut like that. “He went right at him. It was a tough situation. But it’s all downhill from here, right?” After that encounter, when Yelich ripped into a Helsley cutter, the rookie found his footing and, throwing pitches as fast as 100 and 101 mph, set down the Brewers in order in the sixth and seventh, striking out four. “He was fantastic,” said Shildt. Helsley said he had been nervous in the bullpen but not on the mound. “It was a lot of fun,” he said. “It means the world to have everyone back at home reaching out and supporting me. It’s not just for me. It’s for everybody back at home watching.” But, looking ahead to Wednesday’s finale of the series and next week’s three games with the Brewers in St. Louis, Shildt ad-

mitted he may go all Barry Bonds on Yelich, where he would walk the Brewers slugger every time he could. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again,” Shildt said. “It’s a fine line in giving him the Bonds treatment and at some point feeling like it’s going to end.” Batting for the first time, Helsley showed speed on the bases, too, by legging out an infield hit in the seventh. He said he had run some track in high school. “I went to a really small school (in Sequoyah, Okla.). I had to do quite few sports,” he said. Helsley was rubbed out in an historic play. Matt Carpenter grounded into a double play, something he hadn’t done since Sept. 4, 2017 at San Diego. Carpenter went 691 at-bats and 825 plate appearances between double plays. “I had no idea,” said Carpenter. Cain hopped on a Flaherty slider and drove it over the leftfield wall for his second homer of the season to open the scoring in the third. “He hit a mistake,” said Flaherty. “More power to him.” With one out, Ryan Braun dribbled a broken-bat grounder under the glove of charging third

baseman Carpenter and the ball rolled into left field for a double. With two out, Grandal sent a slider high and far over the left field wall. “Grandal hit a slider that was on the inner half. It wasn’t over the middle of the plate,” said Flaherty. Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar singled and Orlando Arcia walked to fill the bases for Brandon Woodruff, an outstanding hitting pitcher. A better slider ensued and Woodruff, who was five for five at that point, doubled home two runs to swell the lead to 5-0 and finish Flaherty for Gallegos. Flaherty’s short start marked the 11th time in 17 games a Cardinals starter had failed to go more than five innings. Flaherty has contributed three of those starts, Miles Mikolas three, Dakota Hudson three and veterans Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright one apiece. “The truth hurts,” said Shildt. “You can’t run from it. You’ve got to figure out a way to be better.” The Brewers have bashed the Cardinals in virtually every game here but Shildt offered, “I would be more inclined (to say) we have a Christian Yelich problem — and one that we’ve got to solve. I

don’t want to disrespect the rest of their lineup but ... you look at it in a holistic manner and you remove Yelich, the numbers are a lot more favorable. The reality is that we can’t do that.” “I couldn’t get out of (the third inning),” said Flaherty. “They hit everything I threw. I made a bunch of good pitches and they hit every single one of them, including the pitcher. “(Woodruff) hit a 2-2 slider in a spot where I put it where I wanted to. What the hell are you going to do? It was a pretty good freakin’ slider. Somehow he hit it “With the stuff that I had today and the mentality I went in with, that’s not what I expected at all. It wasn’t like I was throwing stuff right down the middle,” said Flaherty, who already had watched the game once on video and planned to again. “You don’t want an outing like this ... it was a crazy one,” said Flaherty. He’s no Yelich now, but former Miami teammate Marcell Ozuna cracked his fourth homer in three games for two of the Cardinals’ four runs. But he is not “locked in,” he said. “Not yet,” he said. “Day by day.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

Blues Jackets win to eliminate Lightning

games at Winnipeg, then the Jets flew to St. Louis and pounded the Blues 6-3 in Game 3. Game 4 was at Enterprise Center Tuesday night. The Tampa Bay Lightning looked to be the one sure thing entering these playoffs, since they earned 128 points in the regular season and won the Presidents’ Trophy. “I quite honestly remove Tampa from that parity this year,” Armstrong said. “They were head and shoulders above everybody else.” Or at least they were. The Columbus Blue Jackets swept them out of the postseason, capped by their 7-3 victory Tuesday night. After winning 62 games in the regular season, the Lightning won zero games in the postseason. That’s the NHL for you. “You have a historic regular season doing what we did and have basically a historic playoff in defeat,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said in his postgame news conference. “Six days in April, Columbus played better.” The upstart New York Islanders swept the Pittsburgh Penguins, the perennial Stanley Cup contenders led by Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. “They deserve it,” Malkin said after the Islanders closed out the Penguins with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night. “They have a great team.” Elsewhere, the Dallas Stars won a game at Nashville and the Predators returned the favor by winning Game 3 in the Big D. The Colorado Avalanche won once at Calgary while taking a 2-1 series lead over the Flames, the Western Conference’s top seed. Similarly, the Vegas Golden Knights won once at San Jose while racing to a 2-1 series lead over the Sharks. The Toronto Maple Leafs won their opener at Boston and went on to build a 2-1 series lead over the higher-seeded Bruins. “When they say the playoffs are a new season, In hockey, you have to respect that,” more so than venerable in basketball, Bruins captain concerted Zdeno Chara told reporters. effort by one “Everything team can that you’ve negate the skill accomplished during the advantage of regular seaanother. Hence son has been the potential wiped off the table. Everyfor upsets. body starts with a zero. All the stats start with zero. I think that’s one thing people like to talk about, having always one team being the favorite, the other team being the underdog, but there is no such a thing. “You can be talking about teams that have this skill, that type of player, but if you do that you only bring motivation for the other team to do their best and bring their best and they usually do.” In hockey, more so than in basketball, concerted effort by one team can negate the skill advantage of another. Hence the potential for upsets. “In the series, there are matchups,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “You’re going to play the majority of your shifts against a certain matchup, a certain set of D. You’ve got to out-will them. That’s just it. Skill is a wonderful thing; will is more important at this time of year and determination.” These playoff teams all have the potential to take a team run. But only some of them figure out how to realize that potential. Once they do, they have a chance to become special. “Once you’ve had success at playoff time, and you’ve disarmed the bomb or found the key to the safe and you figure out what happened, you just think you know how to make it happen,” Babcock said. “Until you find that, though, you’re in the same process as everybody else.” The old-time NHL had dynasties, most notably the Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens during the “Original Six” days. The Islanders, then the Edmonton Oilers ruled the 1980s. Hockey’s wealth has been more evenly distributed the last three decades, particularly in the modern salary cap era. Over the last 19 seasons, 12 franchises have won the Cup and 10 other franchises have played for it. The Penguins are the only team to repeat as champions during that 20-year stretch, although the Chicago Blackhawks (three Cups in five years) and Los Angeles Kings (two in three years) enjoyed mini-dynasties. On the other hand, the Carolina Hurricanes won a Cup. So did the Lightning, long before it built this offensive juggernaut. The Sharks, Predators and Golden Knights played for the Cup the previous three seasons. Neither the Blues nor Jets (nor their predecessors, the Atlanta Thrashers) have played for the Cup during that span. But Winnipeg reached the Western Conference Finals last season and the Blues got to the Final Four in 2016. Any franchise can rise up and have success. Earn a berth in the playoffs and anything goes. Which team is favored to claim the sacred chalice this season? Based on what we’ve seen across the first-round series, that is anybody’s guess.

The Tampa Bay Lightning ended up on the wrong side of NHL history, getting swept in the first round of the playoffs after one of the best regular seasons ever. The host Columbus Blue Jackets capped a stunning sweep of the Presidents Trophy winners with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night. Tampa Bay became the first team in the expansion era, which began in 1967-68, to go winless in the first round of the playoffs after leading the league in points during the regular season. The Blue Jackets outplayed the Lightning with a smothering forecheck and stellar goaltending by Sergei Bobrovsky, who had 30 saves Tuesday. The Blue Jackets’ final three goals came late in the third period after the Lightning had pulled goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy for an extra skater. Rookie Alexandre Texier, who was brought over after his season ended in the Finnish league, scored his first NHL goal and later added one of the emptynetters. Pierre Luc-Dubois had a goal and a pair of assists. Steven Stamkos, Cedric Paquette and Brayden Point scored for Tampa Bay, which never led in this elimination game.

TRANSACTIONS

Islanders 3, Penguins 1 • Jordan Eberle scored for the fourth straight game, Robin Lehner stopped 32 shots and New York finished off Sidney Crosby and host Pittsburgh to pull off a stunning sweep. Josh Bailey set up Brock Nelson’s go-ahead goal late in the first period and added an empty-net score with 38 seconds remaining as the Islanders won just their second playoff series in 26 years. The Islanders trailed for less than five minutes across four games against the Penguins, whose 13th straight postseason appearance ended quietly. Pittsburgh managed just six goals in the series, including Jake Guentzel’s first of the postseason 35 seconds into the game.

NOTEBOOK Kings hire McLellan • Todd McLellan was hired as coach of the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, taking over a two-time Stanley Cup-winning franchise that slumped to the NHL’s second-worst record this season. Hurricanes’ Svechnikov out • Carolina rookie Andrei Svechnikov is in the concussion protocol after Washington star Alex Ovechkin punched him, sending his head crashing onto the ice Monday.

Blue Jackets win to eliminate Lightning

disengaged during most of that Game 3 defeat. Some of that trouble lingered Tuesday night at Enterprise Center. The Blues found themselves for stretches, especially early on, but they failed to sustain their game. The Jets got better as the game went on and finally prevailed 2-1 in overtime. Now the teams are back to square one with the best-of-seven series tied at 2-2. Let’s be real here: The Jets have carried more of the play through the four games. But for goaltender Jordan Binnington’s brilliance in three of the games, the Blues would be in a hole. “He’s the least of our problems,” Pietrangelo confirmed after Tuesday night’s loss. Early on Tuesday, it appeared the Blues would reestablish the grinding game that carried them to two victories in Winnipeg to open the series. The bounced back from their listless performance in Game 3 by focusing on a fast start. “We’re going to be pushing pace from the start, try to get to our game as quick as we can,” winger Alexander Steen said beforehand. “First five to 10 minutes has to be our best hockey, plain and simple,” winger Pat Maroon said. “It’s important that we get back to Game 1 and Game 2 where we were aggressive right away in the first period and dictate the pace of the game,” Berube said. The Blues didn’t meet those objectives immediately — their early shifts produced two icing calls and lots of defensive zone The Blues left time — too much up but they quickly to Binnington, settled who made one into their acrobatic save game. T h e after another grindwhile bouncing ing line back from his of Tyler Bozak difficult Game 3.

But early in the second period the Jets began pushing the tempo, forcing the game to open up. At one end of the ice, Maroon redirected Bozak’s shot off the left post. At the other end, Jets forward Chris Tanev backhanded his breakaway shot over Binnington ... and just off the crossbar. So it went, back and forth, back and forth, through the scoreless first period and then the scoreless second period. It was entertaining stuff for the fans, but nerve-wracking for the Blues staff that sought a slower tempo. Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko raised hopes by scoring a power-play goal 35 seconds into the third period, converting a man-advantage earned with offensive zone pressure late in the second. But that did not turn the game. The Jets kept coming and countered with a nice five-on-five rush to tie the game 1-1 — with big center Mark Scheifele driving to the net to convert Kyle Connor’s nifty feed off the left wing. Frankly, the Blues were lucky to get into overtime. They squandered a late power-play opportunity, getting little done aside from Maroon’s jam attempt at the post. Then the monstrous Scheifele came perilously close to winning the game with another of his mad dashes toward the net. The Blues left too much up to Binnington, who made one acrobatic save after another while bouncing back from his difficult Game 3. At one point in the third period, they Blues refused to ice the puck after Binnington lost his stick all the way to the corner. They played on, blissfully unaware of the crisis at hand. Or maybe they just figured Binnington didn’t really need his stick — since could just go to the backhand with his trapper if need be. The break before overtime gave the Blues a chance to reset, but they didn’t. Winnipeg took control and kept it, finally putting the Blues away with Connor converting a goal-mouth scramble. So now the Blues have more work to do. They took a step in the right direction in Game 4, but not enough to win the game and regain control of the series. They raised their “compete level,” as the coaches say, but failed to impose their will. Now the Jets, who reached the Final Four a season ago, return home with much momentum. Their frenzied fans will fuel them. Can the Blues relocate the identity that carried them into postseason and won them too games in Winnipeg? They have two days to make that discovery.

The Tampa Bay Lightning ended up on the wrong side of NHL history, getting swept in the first round of the playoffs after one of the best regular seasons ever. The host Columbus Blue Jackets capped a stunning sweep of the Presidents Trophy winners with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night. Tampa Bay became the first team in the expansion era, which began in 1967-68, to go winless in the first round of the playoffs after leading the league in points during the regular season. The Blue Jackets outplayed the Lightning with a smothering forecheck and stellar goaltending by Sergei Bobrovsky, who had 30 saves Tuesday. The Blue Jackets’ final three goals came late in the third period after the Lightning had pulled goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy for an extra skater. Rookie Alexandre Texier, who was brought over after his season ended in the Finnish league, scored his first NHL goal and later added one of the emptynetters. Pierre Luc-Dubois had a goal and a pair of assists. Steven Stamkos, Cedric Paquette and Brayden Point scored for Tampa Bay, which never led in this elimination game.

Islanders 3, Penguins 1 • Jordan Eberle scored for the fourth straight game, Robin Lehner stopped 32 shots and New York finished off Sidney Crosby and host Pittsburgh to pull off a stunning sweep. Josh Bailey set up Brock Nelson’s go-ahead goal late in the first period and added an empty-net score with 38 seconds remaining as the Islanders won just their second playoff series in 26 years. The Islanders trailed for less than five minutes across four games against the Penguins, whose 13th straight postseason appearance ended quietly. Pittsburgh managed just six goals in the series, including Jake Guentzel’s first of the postseason 35 seconds into the game.

NOTEBOOK Kings hire McLellan • Todd McLellan was hired as coach of the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, taking over a two-time Stanley Cup-winning franchise that slumped to the NHL’s second-worst record this season. Hurricanes’ Svechnikov out • Carolina rookie Andrei Svechnikov is in the concussion protocol after Washington star Alex Ovechkin punched him, sending his head crashing onto the ice Monday.

Blues plug Fabbri in on fourth line in pivotal game BLUES • FROM B1

Fabbri had been a healthy scratch for 10 straight games in the closing weeks of the season before getting into the final two games. He had an assist in the Philadelphia game — his first point since Jan. 10 — and was a plus-2. After the Blues were outmuscled and outhustled in Game 3 by Winnipeg, putting in Fabbri was seen as a way of bringing some life to the team for a pivotal game. “He’s a tenacious player,” coach Craig Berube said earlier Tuesday. “Aggressive. Get on the forecheck. He has got the ability to score. He has the ability to find soft areas in the ice where he can get good chances. He’ll have a lot of energy out there and we’ll need that.” Fabbri played only 32 games in the regular season — he was a healthy scratch 30 times — as he came back from two knee operations that cost him most of the previous two seasons. He missed the start of the season with aches and pains brought on by his overcompensating for his knee and then had a shoulder injury that knocked him out again in December. When he came back from the shoulder injury, he seemed to lack a little pop in his game and was a healthy scratch most of the time after Jan. 17, appearing in only nine games of the final 36. “It’s been a tough go,” Fabbri said. “I’m not going to sugarcoat it and say it’s been easy, but I’ve put in the work and I know what I want to prove, not only to people watching but to myself.” One thing Fabbri brought is postseason experience. He appeared in 20 playoff games in his rookie season of 2015-16, with four goals and 11 assists. His 15 points are the second most by a Blues rookie in a single postseason, behind Joe Mullen’s 18 in 1982. “Going through it my first year and going to the conference fi-

COREAU JOINS TEAM Jared Coreau, who played goalie at San Antonio after Jordan Binnington was called up and Ville Husso got hurt, has joined the Blues as their third goalie for the playoffs. The Blues acquired Coreau in a trade with Anaheim for future considerations on Jan. 3. The 27-year-old has played in 21 NHL games, all with Detroit, most re-

cently in 2017-18, and has never appeared in the playoffs. He was 12-18-1 with a 3.15 GAA and an .886 save percentage for San Antonio this season. Though Husso, who was limited to 27 games because of an ankle injury, has been with the Blues for a few weeks now and has been coming onto the ice at the end of practice, Berube said he’s not ready to play. “It’s just precautionary with Husso,” Berube said. “We’re still working on his recovery.” Berube said there would likely be other callups from San Antonio, whose season ended Satur-

day.

BLUES NOTEBOOK

Blues turn to Fabbri for a boost Berube hoped winger would provide energy BY TOM TIMMERMANN st. Louis Post-dispatch

In a season with plenty of ups and downs — mostly downs — Robby Fabbri found himself back in the lineup for the Blues Tuesday night. Fabbri moved into a spot on the fourth line for Game 4 of the Blues-Jets series, replacing Zach Sanford, who had seen minimal ice time in two of the first three games. Sanford played 6:30 in Game 1 and 5:09 in Game 3, getting only one shift in the third period. Fabbri had been a healthy scratch for 10 straight games in the closing weeks of the season before getting into the final two games. He had an assist in the Philadelphia game — his first

point since Jan. 10 — and was a plus-2. After the Blues were outmuscled and outhustled in Game 3 by Winnipeg, putting in Fabbri was seen as a way of bringing some life to the team for a pivotal game. “He’s a tenacious player,” coach Craig Berube said earlier Tuesday. “Aggressive.

Tarasenko scores for Blues but Jets even up series Winnipeg Blues

BLUES • FROM B1

Had they solved the 25-year-old rookie? Turns out this too was not a career defining moment. In Game 4, Binnington did more than stand on his head against Winnipeg. He played about 30 seconds without a stick. He appeared to stop one Winnipeg rush by spitting out the puck fired by Mark Scheifele. Actually, it looked to be caught up in his facemask. During the ensuing stoppage of play, the fans at Enterprise began chanting: “Binnington! Binnington! Binnington!” Pure emotion. No video board prompting was needed for these cheers. Despite Binnington’s heroics, the series is headed back to Winnipeg tied 2-2. The Jets have regained home ice advantage with two of the final three games at Bell MTS Place, beginning with Thursday’s 7:30 p.m. contest. Kyle Connor’s goal at 6 minutes 2 seconds of overtime Tuesday night gave the Jets a 2-1 victory. For the first time in his amazing rookie season, Binnington has lost back-to-back contests. He had been 6-0 following his six losses (five in regulation, one in overtime) entering Tuesday’s game. So the home team has lost all four games in the series, which shouldn’t seem strange considering the Jets were 2-0 at Enterprise and the Blues 1-0-1 at Bell MTS in the regular season. Shortly after Binnington was serenaded by Blues fans, Scheifele proceeded to tie the game at 1-1, plowing into Binnington in the process and knocking the goalie’s stick away again at the 7:33 mark of the third period. It was that kind of game. Intense and highly entertaining. Just 35 seconds into the third period, Vladimir Tarasenko took a pass from Alex Pietrangelo on the power play and at the left faceoff circle — one of his favorite spots on the ice — zipped one past Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck to break a scoreless tie. It was Tarasenko’s second power-play goal in as many games, and as might be expected, the crowd went crazy at Enterprise Center. The game opened up in the second and third periods, producing a roller-coaster ride of end-to-end rushes and high-quality chances for both teams. Just 18 seconds into the period, Pat Maroon hit the post on a great setup by Tyler Bozak. But then, Binnington got caught fiddling with the puck behind the net. Winnipeg came up with it and Blake Wheeler had a clean backhand attempt into a vacant net. But Robert Bortuzzo got a stick down to swipe the puck out of harm’s way. Next, Winnipeg had a 2-on-1 rush with Binnington stopping both Brandon Tanev and Jacob Trouba. The Blues stormed back with good chances by Ivan Barbashev and Maroon. It was exciting. It was exhilarating. It was still scoreless. But wait. There was more. Tanev got a clean breakaway on Binnington, appeared to send a backhand over the goalie’s pads. Tanev thought he had a goal, and threw up his arms in celebration. The puck went over the net — perhaps grazing the crossbar on its way out of harms way. When Tanev saw what happened, he

slammed his stick on the ice in frustration. The Blues had their best stretch in the final two minutes, getting six shots on goal including Grade A chances by Jaden Schwartz and Robert Thomas. The pressure helped force a penalty on Mathieu Perreault for cross-checking Pietrangelo with 31.3 seconds left in the second period. After the teams combined for 14 penalties on Sunday, it was only the second penalty of the game and the first against Winnipeg. One thing the Blues stressed more than anything else entering Game 4 was the importance of getting off to a quick start Tuesday. They got just that. The Blues produced the opening period’s first eight shots, generating the kind of offensive zone time that was missing in a big way Sunday. It’s basically impossible to score if you don’t get a shot on goal, and that strategy worked for the Blues for more than half the period. Winnipeg didn’t get its first shot on goal until just 9:02 remained in the first. The best chances for the Blues to that point were a shot by Ryan O’Reilly from close in on left wing and a blast from the blue line by Pietrangelo. But then David Perron, who didn’t take part in the morning skate for what interim coach Craig Berube called maintenance reasons, got whistled for tripping Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine with 7:48 left in the period. Even though the Jets didn’t score on that power-play opportunity, their momentum picked up and they had five of the period’s final seven shots. Just before play was stopped on the delayed penalty, Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot had an open shot from the slot that Binnington handled. And just 30 seconds into the power play Connor had a pair of dangerous shots from in close. Despite the Blues’ dominance in the early going, those shots for Chiarot and Connor represented the best chances for either team in the period. There wasn’t much space to operate and there was a ton of hitting _ a combined 23 hits by both squads. More often than not, Winnipeg made the Blues work just to clear the puck out of their own zone.

BOYS VOLLEYBALL • SPOTLIGHT

‘CHARLIE STRONG’ Morgan gets strength in cancer battle from Vianney classmates, community BY JOE HARRIS Special to STLhighschoolsports.com

Vianney junior Charlie Morgan has faced some tough challenges on the volleyball court, but nothing like his current fight. In late January, the 17-year-old Morgan was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer that mostly affects people under the age of 25. Instead of preparing to try out for the Griffins boys volleyball team, Morgan suddenly found himself in a fight for his life. “Sports have always been like a fun thing for me to do,” Morgan said. “I’m a pretty competitive person, but I never had any huge moments that I’ve had to face, and this is way bigger than I can imagine.” Morgan has met the tumor on his left knee head on, but he hasn’t done it alone. The entire Vianney community has thrown its support behind Morgan. The Griffins have dedicated their season to him. Family, friends and complete strangers have offered thoughts and prayers. “I never expected so many people to support me, it’s crazy,” Morgan said. “I see people on social media and everyone at school has been so supportive. It amazes me at how many people have my back and how many people are praying for me. It’s a lot more support than I could ever imagine.”

GETTING THE NEWS Morgan first felt the pain in November. He thought he tweaked something in his knee, and an initial doctor’s visit didn’t reveal anything. But during a CYC basketball game in January, Morgan came down awkwardly on his left leg. His knee swelled up, leading to an X-ray and an MRI. Both revealed the cancerous tumor on his left knee. “When my parents told me what the doctors told them, I was mostly just scared because I didn’t know how serious it was,” Morgan said. “We didn’t really know a whole lot about it at the time, so that was scary.” Chemotherapy started immediately and took its toll. Morgan still deals with severe nausea, though it has gotten better. He also had throat sores and lost his hair, along with aches and pains. Morgan can’t put any pressure on his left leg because the bone strength is compromised and a break would cause complications.

NATE LATSCH • St. John Vianney High School

Vianney junior Charlie Morgan throws out the first pitch prior to a baseball game alongside Vianney’s (left to right) C.J. Cepicky, Nico Hagen and Ryan Weis last Thursday at Vianney.

Through it all, Charlie has kept a positive and even lighthearted attitude. He even named the tumor “Brian.” The treatment side effects have made regular school attendance impossible. Morgan is doing his best to keep up but is pretty far behind. “My teachers are super good about it,” Charlie said. “They give me work and tell me to work at my own pace and try to catch up as much as I can. The teachers are more concerned about my health than they are about the academics.”

A CALL TO ACTION Morgan’s classmates learned of his diagnosis during the school’s morning announcements in early February. Lucas Sturma, a senior standout hitter on the volleyball team, also knows Morgan from leadership programs. Sturma researched osteosarcoma and found out that its ribbon color was yellow, which fit in naturally with Vianney’s school colors of black and yellow. Sturma designed three different team warmup shirts and the team chose one, which they wear before every match. The winning design states “Charlie Strong” on the front with “Morgan” and his No. 10 on the back.

“He wanted to be on the team and he has a spot in our hearts and we needed to honor him in some way since he wasn’t able to get the opportunity to try out,” Sturma said. Morgan felt good enough to take in the volleyball team’s sweep of Eureka last Thursday. “I’ve made some good friends on those teams and they’re really supportive and they’ve been reaching out to me, and even the seniors who I haven’t really played with but they know me, they’ve been super supportive, too,” Morgan said. “It was good to be back.” His presence provided a boost to the volleyball team, as well. Sturma said the Griffins players think about Morgan every day. “Every time I put on that jersey it feels a lot different for me,” he said. “In the past years we’ve had normal warmup jerseys and this year is different. We’re playing for something different. We’re all playing for Charlie. It’s more than just playing volleyball this year.” Like Sturma, other Vianney students stirred into action when they heard about Morgan’s cancer diagnosis. Some of Morgan’s friends at Vianney also designed T-shirts to honor him,

which raised money to go toward the family’s medical bills. Last Thursday, the Griffins baseball team honored Morgan by having him throw out the first pitch before their Metro Catholic Conference game against CBC. Charlie’s grade school, St. Peter in Kirkwood, hosted a mass in his honor. Almost every student in Morgan’s graduating class attended. Morgan’s three siblings have either cut or shaved their hair in support, while family and friends started a GoFundMe page to help the family with expenses: www. gofundme.com/dem47-charlie-strong. The outpouring has been overwhelming — but strengthening. “He has his moments,” said Kate Morgan, Charlie’s mother. “His misses being a normal 17-year-old teenager, that’s for sure. But his school community has been a tremendous support for him and I think that helps knowing so many people care for you. They lift him up. They don’t treat him any differently.”

WHAT’S NEXT Charlie went through his final round of chemotherapy Monday. On April 23, he will go in for scans of the tumor. Three days later, he and his parents will meet with the surgeon to determine if his leg can be saved. Surgery to remove the tumor is scheduled for April 30. The tumor will either be removed without anything else done to the leg — an artificial femur and knee could be an option — or the entire leg will need to be removed. It all depends on what the scans show. “He’s never questioned,” Kate Morgan said. “He’s never said, ‘Why me?’ He’s never said, ‘Why did God do this?’ He’s never questioned his faith. He did say one time he wished he could eat or go to school. You appreciate those things when you can’t have them, but he’s never lingered.” Part of keeping Charlie grounded is seeing the other children in the David C. Pratt Cancer Center on the Mercy Hospital campus. Most of those children are a lot younger and are dealing with leukemia. Charlie is would love to be able to give back. “It really does mean a lot that they are supporting me and praying for me,” he said. “I definitely noticed the amount of support. Just keep praying for me and hopefully it will work out in the end.”

ST. LOUIS COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING FINAL NOTICE AND EXPLANATION TO THE PUBLIC OF PROPOSED ACTIVITIES IN THE FLOODPLAIN

PRE-BID CONFERENCE: A prebid conference is scheduled for 10:00 am, Monday, April 22, 2019, beginning at the offices of the College Project Manager, Operations Center, Ozarks Technical Community College, 933 E. Central Ave., Springfield, Missouri 65802.

To all interested agencies, groups and persons:

PREVAILING WAGES: Prevailing wages shall be paid in accordance with the Missouri Division of Labor Standards, Annual Wage Order in effect at the time of construction.

Public notice is hereby given that St. Louis County, in accordance with Executive Order 11988 and 24 CFR Section 58.30, is proposing to include the activities listed below in its St. Louis HOME Consortium Consolidated Plan for fiscal year 2019 for the Community Development Block Grant program. Funding for this program is being provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The followin g p r o p o s e d activities w ould upgrade or improve existing facilities located in the floodplain as show n on Federal Emergency Management Agency Flood Rate maps:

SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION: All Work for this project shall be substantially complete by August 1, 2019.

• The City of Ferguson is proposing street improvements to the 15001600 blocks of Northwinds Estates Drive. • T h e C i t y o f M a p l e w o o d is proposing sidewalk improvements to the following locations: 23002400 blocks of Laclede Station Rd. • The City of University City is proposing street improvements to the following locations: 8300-8500 blocks of Elmore Ave. and 1300 block of Mendell Dr.

R E Q U E S T F O R QUALIFICATIONS for PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING SERVI CES FOR LINDBERGH TUNNEL INSPECTION A ND DOCUMENTATION FOR YEAR 2019, ST. LOUIS LAMBERT INTERNA TIONA L AIRPORT. Statements of Qualifications due by 5:00 P.M. CT, APRIL 29, 2019 at Board of Public Service, 1200 Market, Room 301 City Hall, St. Louis, MO 63103. RFQ may be obtained from BPS website w w w.stl-bps.org, under On Line Plan Room-Plan Room, or call Board of Public Service at 314622-3535. 25% M B E and 5% WB E participation goals.

Alternative Sites, Actions and Determinations The proposed street and sidewalk improvements cannot be relocated as the infrastructure is existing in w e ll- e s t a b lis h ed residential areas. The alternative of not undertaking these activities was considered and rejected due to the overwhelming public benefit of this improvement. If streets and sidewalks are not improved, deterioration would be unsafe. These activities will have no significant impact on the environment for the following reasons: The possible effects of not undertaking these activities were examined and it was determined there was an overriding public need for the activities and improvements which clearly outweigh the order's requirements to avoid the floodplain. Non-floodplain activities do not appear to be practicable. Any proposed improvement of existing infrastructure will incorporate measures designed to mitigate potential side effects of possible flooding and the few adverse effects caused by construction will be temporary. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988 are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Any comments relative to these proposed expenditures of federal funds in an area identified as a flood hazard area should be submitted in writing and must be received on or before April 25th, 2019. Comments should be addressed to the attention of Mr. Jim Holtzman, address below. Comments may also be submitted v i a e m a i l a t JHoltzman2@stlouisco.com.

Dessicated crickets, incidentally, are out of fashion again after brief but persistent efforts to get Americans interested in eating them as a vital and nearly inexhaustible supply of protein, which unfortunately leaves tiny little insect legs stuck in your teeth.

Springtime red wine for Easter

Fudge Covered Nutter Butter Cookies

BY GAIL APPLESON Special to the Post-Dispatch

Every once in a while, someone comes up with an idea so obvious you can’t believe no one ever thought of it before. The folks at Nabisco just took the already delightful Nutter Butter peanut butter sandwich cookie and dunked it in chocolate. And just like that, the world became a better place. Size • 7.9 ounce Price • $4.19 Available • Grocery stores everywhere

If you’re hunting for a special, springtime red to serve with an Easter dinner, a great choice is Les Blondins from Côte Roannaise, an appellation in France’s Loire region. In addition to being delicious, this wine is a celebration of long family friendships. It’s the result of a collaboration between the celebrated chef Michel Troisgros and Stéphane Sérol, owner of the highly regarded Domaine Robert Sérol. Les Blondins comes from grapes planted by their fathers many years ago. The wine is served at La Maison Troisgros, the world-famous restaurant that has received three Michelin stars every year since 1968. In addition, the wine was exported by the wellrespected Becky Wasserman & Co., famous for its portfolio of fine wines from small estates in Burgundy and other areas of France. Les Blondins is made from gamay St. Romain grapes that are mostly found in Côte Roannaise. It’s a local clone of the gamay grape best known for its role in reds from neighboring Beaujolais, where it is used to produce fresh, fruity, easy-to-drink wines that are light to medium in body and low in tannins.

Les Blondins 2017 Côte Roannaise, France Bought • Starrs, 1135 South Big Bend Boulevard, in March for $22.99 Description • This delicious wine has an inviting floral nose and a vibrancy that just says spring. A medium-bodied red, it’s more muscular than most Beaujolais wines and has lots of richness and character. Fresh, fruity and quite refreshing, it tastes of raspberries with a touch of earthiness. Best consumed young and a little chilled, this smooth and easy-to-drink red would go well with ham, lamb and duck. Follow Gail on Twitter @GailAppleson.

Tired of gefilte fish? Grill a whole fish for Passover BY PEGGY WOLFF Chicago Tribune (TnS)

Passover can be a holiday of enormous angst when so much gravitas has been lavished upon gathering recipes, scouring pots, dragging chairs upstairs and, for many, extensive cleaning. Think operation zero chametz, a full-out search-anddestroy mission for anything containing the five forbidden grains. Must we pile on any more tasks? A busy cook might be well-served to meditate for a moment on the barbecue. With Passover’s late arrival this year (it begins sundown on Friday), spring’s warm temperatures invite us to fire up the grill. Expect someone to bring up a fifth question at the Seder: Is it kosher? Yes! This year, indulge your guests with a whole grilled fish to sub for that oftmaligned gefilte fish and its innate deficiencies. Or offer both for the appetizer at the Seder; or grilled fish for the main course or for any of the following nights. Thinking outside the oven makes a lot of sense, says kosher chef Laura Frankel, who will be grilling a fish for the main dish on the seventh night. “Grilling on a cedar plank takes the stress out of the task. You won’t be scraping fish off the grill,” she explains. While your oven

CRISTINA M. FLETES • cfletes@post-dispatch.com

WHOLE GRILLED FISH Yield: 4 servings as an entree or 8 as a first course

is overstuffed keeping other courses warm, “(the fish) is taking care of itself out on the grill.” The strongest case for grilling fish? Frankel is convinced of its “smoky, wonderful, delicious flavor.” There is no written law commanding Jews to eat gefilte fish on the holiday. It’s a custom rooted in the Ashkenazic regions of Eastern Europe, and for many Diaspora Jews, the gefilte fish (meaning stuffed) recalls the rich culture of the shtetls, or small towns. Jewish law only requires that the fish has fins and scales. Frankel suggests several cold ocean fish: red snapper, branzino, black bass, striped bass or a small grouper. These will have a hardier flavor than a freshwater fish like trout. Grilling offers many advantages: no odors from poaching ground fish, no pulling fish torpedoes out of a jar with a gelatinous goo derived from simmering fish bones and no need to mask its blandness with zesty, creamy horseradish. Simply slide the grilled fish onto a platter garnished with spring herbs and a dollop of gremolata, which adds a pleasantly sharp citrusy kick. Then place it center stage on your table. When it’s time to eat, remove it to the kitchen for deboning and slicing into easy-to-eat portions. Be prepared: Afishionados will surely ask for seconds.

For the paste 2 lemons, thinly sliced 1 stalk fresh lemon grass, bottom 5 inches smashed and sliced into small pieces 4 cloves garlic, smashed, peeled 2 shallots, coarsely chopped 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper For the gremolata 3 cloves garlic, grated Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Zest and 2 teaspoons of juice from 1 small orange ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley 3 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds or almonds, toasted 2 tablespoons olive oil Pinch of sea salt Freshly cracked black pepper For the grilled fish 1 whole snapper, black bass, branzino (or favorite cold water catch), 2½ to 3 pounds, cleaned, scaled 1 tablespoon olive oil

1. For the paste, pulse the lemon slices, lemon grass, garlic, shallots, olive oil, salt and pepper in a food processor until a thick paste forms. 2. For the gremolata, whisk the garlic, lemon juice and zest, orange juice and zest, parsley, nuts, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste until a paste is formed. (Store leftover gremolata, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.) 3. For the fish, soak a cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, rinse fish and pat dry. Heat grill to medium-high, 350 to 375 degrees. 4. Score both sides of the outside of the fish in half-inch deep cuts, about 1½ inches apart. This will help the fish cook faster. Rub the paste on the outside and inside of the fish, coating it as well as possible. 5. Rub the plank with olive oil; gently place the fish on the plank. Slide the plank onto the heated grill; close the top. 6. Roast until the fish feels firm when gently pressed, or reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from grill; allow fish to rest 5 minutes. Slide onto a serving platter; top with the gremolata, and pass the remainder at the table.

DINNER IN MINUTES

PORTUGUESE-STYLE FISH

Flaky white fish pairs nicely with spicy red sauce

Yield: 2 to 3 servings

STACY ZARIN GOLDBERG • Washington Post

BY BONNIE S. BENWICK The Washington Post

White fish plus red sauce: Mediterranean-inspired cookbooks are filled with recipes that build on the classic combo, and for good reason. The sauce is typically light, and some of the best and easiest pairings start with canned tomatoes. Often tinned with citric acid, those tomatoes may work the same flavor-affinity magic as when mild, flaky fish is matched with a sancerre or vinho verde.

This dish is said to be in the style of the whole fish baked in a spicy red sauce and served at seaside restaurants in Portugal, except here we’re using skinned fillets to speed up the process. This is ready in 20 minutes. Jalapeño is responsible for the kick, and, as home cooks have learned, that type of pepper is mighty fickle about how much heat it will impart. A recent exchange with a faithful reader on that very subject led me to an online guide that seems to have merit. If it’s true that jalapeños get hotter as

they get older (if only that were true for the rest of us!), and that smooth skin is the sign of a young jalapeño, then look for the ones that are slightly darker green and look a little worse for wear — with tiny “stretch” or stress lines that run vertically from the tip end of the pepper. I tested this recipe with peppers new and aged, and found the telltale signs of older jalapeños to be true. Then again, if a possible 8,000 Scoville units don’t scare you, taste before you toss the green bits in.

12 ounces skinned cod fillets (may substitute other white-fleshed fish fillets, such as sea bass or flounder) About 6 red pearl onions 1 medium jalapeño pepper 2 medium cloves garlic 1 (14-ounce) can no-salt-added whole tomatoes 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1/3 cup dry red wine (optional; may substitute juices from the tomatoes OR 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar) A few stems fresh thyme, plus more fresh leaves for garnish (may substitute 1 teaspoon dried oregano) Sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Flaky salt, for garnish 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Defrost the fish and pat dry, as needed. 2. Trim and peel the onions; cut each one into thin slices. Stem and seed the jalapeño, then mince. Mince the garlic; combining the vegetables on the cutting board as you cut them is okay. Cut each of the tomatoes into 6 chunks. 3. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in an ovenproof nonstick skillet until shimmering over medium heat. Stir in the onions; cook for about 8 minutes, until mostly translucent. Stir in the garlic and jalapeño; cook for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes and their juices, the wine and thyme. Cover and reduce the heat to medium-low; cook for 10 minutes, stirring a few times, then uncover and cook for 5 minutes more. Taste, and season with salt and pepper, as needed. 4. Pat dry the fish fillets, if you haven’t already. Coat them on both sides with the remaining teaspoon of oil, then season generously with salt and pepper. Place them, skinned sides down, on top of the sauce in the pan, then transfer to the oven. Roast (middle rack) for 10 minutes, or just until the fish is slightly firmer and more opaque (a brighter shade of white, which is why it’s better to place them in the pan skinned sides down; so you can better tell how done they are). 5. Discard the thyme stems. Drizzle with oil, scatter fresh thyme leaves on top and serve hot.

SPECIAL REQUEST

London Tea Room soup is a customer favorite

HILLARY LEVIN • hlevin@post-dispatch.com

Ground tomatoes are key to this creamy concoction BY PAT EBY special to the Post-dispatch

Q • My daughter and I go to the London Tea Room at least once a month when they open and order tea and the Creamy Tomato

Soup. Because it is early, we must wait a bit for the soup to be heated through. The soup is well worth the wait, as it is the best tomato soup we have ever tasted. We will always go there to get it, but it would

be great to have the recipe to make at home. — Len Harriss, St. Louis A • The London Tea Room began serving its tomato soup just eight months after it opened in 2008. It’s been a customer favorite ever since. “We made up the recipe,” manager Jackie James says. “At first, we would fry up the onions and celery, run the

tomatoes through a sieve, then add the ingredients to taste. It was originally a seasonal soup. We didn’t have it in the summer. Now we serve it year-round.” The soup tastes equally good hot or cold. Today, cooks at the Tea Room follow the recipe that was developed to deliver great taste consistently. The beauty of this soup lies in its simplicity and in the use of high-quality ingredients, including the Stanislaus 711 ground tomatoes that impart both a pleasing flavor and a winning texture to the soup. We found them locally at DiGregorio’s Italian Market on the Hill. “The soup simply wouldn’t be the same without these tomatoes,” James says. The tea room has long been a family affair. James’ parents, Alan and Pat Richardson, owned English Living, a 17,000-squarefoot fine furniture store on Washington Avenue downtown. “In London, all the big stores have a tea room, so when we opened next door, it was a natural growth.” James and her sister, Anna Myers, ran the tea room. When the Richardsons retired, they closed the English Living furniture store. At the same time, the London Tea Room moved to its current location on Morganford. Today, this proper tea room maintains a small retail presence as well as serving tea and pastries, breakfast and lunch every day. James manages the tea room, which includes counters where customers may purchase loose tea and baked goods, such as the Lemon Blueberry Cake we featured in Special Request in 2016. Pat Richardson still orders the gifts, tea tins, décor items and fine china cleverly displayed throughout the store. Alan Richardson handles the financial affairs, while Myers organizes the regular and holiday English high teas. These hugely popular gatherings are reservation-only events that nearly always sell out. The tea room also offers

THE LONDON TEA ROOM CREAMY TOMATO SOUP Yield: 8 large servings (approximately 2 cups each) 1 large yellow onion, about 4 inches in diameter (not sweet) 4 stalks celery 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 (6-pound) No. 10 can of Stanislaus 711 ground tomatoes 1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 heaping teaspoon smoked paprika 1 heaping teaspoon dried basil 1 heaping teaspoon dried oregano Salt to taste 1 cup heavy cream (use more or less to taste)

Notes • The Stanislaus 711 ground tomatoes are one of the “secret ingedients” in the tomato soup at the London Tea Room. These ground tomatoes are a blend of unpeeled tomatoes and tomato purée. The combination results in a product with more tomato pectin, which gives more of a homemade texture to dishes. They are available at DiGregorio’s Market on the Hill. • The other “secret” is to use flavorful smoked paprika. It differs widely from regular paprika. It adds a slightly smoky complex flavor to foods. Most better grocers carry this spice. • Taste the soup after it warms in the pan, then add salt if needed. For this recipe, avoid black pepper as it lessens the sweet taste of the tomatoes. 1. Peel and cut the onion in a ¼-inch dice. Trim celery top and bottom, then pull any heavy strings from the top to the bottom of the stalk if needed. Cut celery in a ¼-inch dice. 2. Swirl the olive oil into a 5-quart pot, then heat over medium low until it just shimmers. Add the diced onions and celery and stir together to coat.

Cover and cook on low for 10 minutes. 4. Taste, and add salt if needed. 5. Continue cooking over low heat until the soup is very hot. 6. If the cream is very cold, temper it by adding a few tablespoons of hot soup and stirring it in to warm the cream. This prevents curdling. 7. Remove the pan from heat and slowly whisk in the cream.

The intimate space has seen birthdays, graduations, retirements, bridal showers and baby showers. The website and Facebook page keep people current on the many events. This winter’s spate of snow days brought a new

kind of party into the tea room. “We had a baby shower scheduled, but the snow and cold canceled the event. We rescheduled,” James says. A few weeks later, the stellar team at the tea room hosted the same people for a very special party, no longer a shower. “We had our first Meet & Greet for the new baby,” James says.

Try savory or sweet palacsinta fillings

PALACSINTA Yield: 3 to 4 servings (3 pancakes per serving) 3 eggs 1 teaspoon superfine sugar, see note Pinch of salt 1 cup milk Generous 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup carbonated water Butter, for the pan

Sweet cheese filling is a delicious match for palacsinta.

Note: To make superfine sugar, blend granulated sugar on high in a blender for several seconds until powdery. 1. Combine the eggs, sugar, salt and milk. Stir in the flour to form a smooth batter. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. 2. Just before cooking, stir in carbonated water. Put a skillet over medium heat and add just enough butter to coat it when it melts. Swirl the butter to coat. When hot, pour ½ ladle of batter into the skillet. Tilt the pan so the batter coats the surface of the pan evenly. When golden, flip the pancake to cook the other side. 3. Fill with sweetened cheese filling, below, jam (or jam with sweetened cheese filling), chocolate sauce, berries, strawberries marinated 1 to 2 hours in balsamic vinegar, or just sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Palacsintas are like crepes, only thinner.

PALACSINTA • FROM L1

also in neighboring Romania, where they are called palatschinke. Actually, palacsinta (and also paltschinke) are different from crepes in one key respect: They are a bit thinner. Making palacsinta thinner than crepes is easy. You make a batter that is similar to a crepe batter, and just before cooking it you add some soda water. I saw one reference saying that in Hungary they use any fizzy drink, including lemon-lime soft drinks, but I just used plain soda water, because yuck. Does the soda water make a difference? I think it does. The palacsinta were lighter than other crepes I’ve made, and I could definitely notice the bubbles when I sampled some of the batter before cooking it. I’m not convinced that same sensation lasted after they were cooked, however. Because I wanted to explore the entire palacsinta experience, I decided to try a good half-dozen fillings. You can put anything you want in palacsinta, from ice cream to strawberries that have marinated for an hour or two in balsamic vinegar (the result is mostly sweet, not tart). One colleague whose grandmother was Hungarian said her family used to just sprinkle granulated sugar on them before rolling them up. I decided to make a traditional sweet cheese filling. If there is a name for it, I do not know it and haven’t been able to find it. You begin with ricotta cheese, though some people use dry cottage cheese, and mix in an egg yolk, some sugar, a couple of drops of vanilla and some lemon zest. This concoction, whatever it may be called, is simply astounding. It is better than it sounds. It is better than I thought it would be. It is so good, I

disappeared as a celebrity chef sometime around 2004, when a reality show called “The Restaurant” revealed him to be an insufferable jerk and the cook of food that, when he bothered to be in the kitchen at all, didn’t appear to be particularly interesting. Sorry, I got carried away again. Her point was really that he had disappeared as a celebrity chef and that the menu of his new

restaurant shows he has been “playing catch-up on some of the trends he missed.” So the restaurant offers short ribs that are cooked sous vide and finished with cold applewood smoke. That’s three separate fads from bygone days right there, the writer notes with a sneer, though she also acknowledges that DiSpirito himself helped popularize both sous vide cooking (using precisely controlled hot water to slowly cook food) and

short ribs as an entrée. In the world of highfalutin’ restaurant reviewing, the latest trend is always to be craved. Better still is a restaurant that jumps on the next fad before it appears. The fads of yesteryear — or, like, three months ago — are comically antediluvian and antiquated. Our own critic Ian Froeb, I am happy to say, keeps abreast of the latest fads but does not worship them. And that is how I think it should be. If a fad was genuinely

delicious in 2015, why shouldn’t it be delicious now? Avocado toast may be considered as stale as last month’s bread, but it is still good to eat. Short ribs, which once were served only in soup, make a hearty and satisfying entrée. This is not to say that every fad is worth keeping. Remember the way high-end restaurants tried to stack an entire dinner into an impenetrable tower in the ’90s? That’s a fad that needed to go away. Gelatin molds of the ’50s were never any good for anything. And some of the early excesses of the

walnuts, a bit of vanilla and more sugar than I thought I was going to need. It was a little tangy, a little sweet and entirely delicious with palacsinta. But it still wasn’t as good as that sweet cheese filling.

molecular gastronomy craze seem to be, gratifyingly, dwindling away. I tend to stick with the tried and true and maybe occasionally try something new. But we should always remember that what we love now was once a fad. At some point in history, somebody covered pasta with a tomato sauce, and it became all the rage. Somebody else, presumably, thought that french fries might make a good accompaniment to a hamburger, and before you knew it everybody was doing it. The New Yorker review writes admiringly about

It is “a bowl of Hakurei turnips … Some were al dente, some softened until silky, all bathed in a luscious green sauce and topped with crunchy chorizo-fat bread crumbs and tart coins of rhubarb.” No thanks.I think I’ll stick to something less au courant,like maybe green beans with butter and almonds.

TRIPLE CHERRY BOURBON CHUTNEY Yield: 2 generous cups

ABEL URIBE • Chicago Tribune/Tns

Instead of using a sweet glaze on the Easter ham, this recipe calls for a homemade cherry chutney.

Be sure to keep it moist, and let the delicious, natural flavor shine through BY JEANMARIE BROWNSON Chicago Tribune (Tns)

I cherish my friends — they happily venture to new restaurants with me, try my recipe creations and gift my family with food. Our Dallas friends took us to their favorite spot for hearty barbecue and incredibly delicate biscuits. Recently, they sent us a hickory smoked ham from New Braunfels Smokehouse outside San Antonio, Texas. Their gift makes a great meal for a crowd, with plenty of leftovers. I generally prefer all the dishes I can make from bits and pieces of ham, but first, let’s start with serving a beautiful roast ham for Easter dinner. To accompany the ham, a cherry chutney, spiked with a glug of bourbon, will please my cocktailloving crowd. A ham comes from the upper hip portion and rear legs of a pig. A whole ham means it’s both the shank end, which narrows near the foot, and the wide butt end. A fresh ham is just that — pork with no cure, no smoke. Season a fresh ham as you would a pork roast and cook it to an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Southern-style country hams, dry-cured from the outside, smoked (or not) and aged, tend to be denser in texture with a saltier flavor. Uncooked country hams require soaking to temper the saltiness before cooking. I enjoy cooked country ham as I do prosciutto — in super-thin slices and as a flavoring nugget in many dishes. (Edwards Virginia Smokehouse sells delicious uncooked country hams totally worth the shipping fees; they also sell a sweet ham that is popular for Easter.) Our pink and juicy Texas gift ham, and indeed most hams sold in supermarkets and butcher shops across the United States, falls into the category of city ham. These are hams that are injected with a wet cure before hot-smoking, which fully cooks them. They typically weigh up to 20 pounds. These fully cooked hams take center stage at many holiday meals because they are lean, moist and relatively inexpensive per serving. Most supermarkets sell butt end (tender, but more tricky to carve) and shank end (easier to carve, but often drier) portions of fully cooked ham weighing about 8 pounds — plenty for a gathering of 10 to 12 guests. Serving a whole, or portion of, a city ham proves simple — you only need to gently warm the lean meat. Most fully cooked hams simply require a low oven with something added to the pan to provide a moist environment. Just be sure you don’t overheat the lean meat — this is not the

for heating a ham, be sure to set it in a foil-covered pan with liquid; arrange the coals or adjust the gas burners so they are not directly under the ham. I’m not a big fan of sweet glazes and pineapple slices covering up the delicious flavor of the smoked meat. Instead, I offer tangy, bold mustards, pickles, relishes

place for a slow-cooker or pressure cooker. Calculate 12 to 15 minutes per pound in a 325-degree oven to sufficiently heat a fully cooked ham. I like to wrap the ham in heavy-duty foil and add 1 cup of water (or half water and half beer) to the pan to keep things moist when heating. If you choose to use the grill

and chutneys on the side to complement the meat. This triple cherry chutney boasts a bit of bourbon and mustard to counter the fruits’ sweet nature. It tastes great with a smoky ham as well as roast duck, grilled chicken and pork chops.

1 package (12 ounces) frozen, pitted, dark sweet cherries, about 3 cups 1 package (5 ounces) dried tart red cherries, about 1 cup ½ cup (about 5 ounces) cherry preserves or cherry jam 2 tablespoons bourbon

2 tablespoons fresh orange juice ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper ½ teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons cold water 1 ½ to 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, optional

1. In a small saucepan, stir together cherries, preserves, bourbon, orange juice, mustard, pepper and salt. Add ½ cup water; heat to a boil. Reduce heat to very low. Simmer uncovered, stirring often, until thickened and cherries have collapsed and liquid has thickened a bit, about 15 minutes. 2. Stir in dissolved cornstarch. Heat to a boil until mixture thickens. Cool. Stir in vinegar to taste, if using. Serve at room temperature.

DEAR ABBY

Find six differences between the panels.

Wife discovers digital trail DEAR ABBY: My husband went to his 45th class reunion a state away and hooked up with a classmate. Over the next few months it went from talking and texting to her sending him nude pictures of herself. I found her emails professing her love to him. When I asked him, he swore nothing happened between them during the two weeks he was there other than a lunch date. After further investigation, I have discovered they had more than 30 hours of phone conversations, exchanged 4,000-plus texts and who knows the number of emails. Not only that, he bought another phone so I could no longer see the interactions on our shared cell account. He finally admitted they did have a sexual encounter. He has now agreed to end all contact with her and work on our marriage. He has apologized, but I’m struggling to believe him. Is it time to cut my losses, or should I wait to see if he does this again? Why do people think having affairs is a good thing? —

CONFUSED IN MONTANA DEAR CONFUSED: People who think an affair is a good thing for a marriage are deluding themselves. An affair only adds to the problems the couple was trying to ignore. It’s time for you and your husband to make an appointment with a licensed marriage and family therapist. Marriages can survive infidelity, but it takes time, full disclosure and hard work to rebuild trust. It will happen more quickly with professional help. If it doesn’t work, THEN may be the time to “cut your losses.” Only you can decide whether your marriage has been irretrievably broken. DEAR ABBY: I was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. I had surgery and radiation treatment, and although my recovery was slow, I am doing well now. About a year ago, a co-worker was diagnosed with breast cancer. Our other co-workers raised a large sum of money for her to be used at a spa. They have also offered her emotional support via phone calls, texts,

visits and cards. While I don’t begrudge her the gifts and support, I’m very hurt that all I received was a handful of cards, an occasional phone call or text and one visit from one person. Only one of my co-workers stuck by me through everything. I see these people all the time, and I’m having a hard time with my hurt feelings. Any thoughts on how I can move on? As a sidebar, these people are always the first ones to ask me for help and support at work. — HURT IN THE EAST DEAR HURT: There is nothing to be gained by nursing this disappointment. If you intend to continue working at the place you now do, recognize that it is time to put this behind you and move forward.

TV WEDNESDAY CAROLYN HAX

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

Helping a child with her sense of self DEAR CAROLYN • We have a bunch of little girls in our neighborhood who play with ours. One of them sometimes comes up to me, and asks, “Don’t I look pretty?” What do you think is the best thing to say? I usually say something like, “What a fancy dress,” but it feels fake. — I Want My Kids to Be Nerds Answer • Funny, I was just talking about this last night with someone. A few points: • A world where you can’t tell kids they look pretty every once in a while sounds like a real pain in the butt to live in. • It’s naive, however, to ignore the collective effect of comments about looks. So, you’re right to think about your answer before you get asked. It’s also right to notice it’s one girl who tends to ask you this. Any

thoughts on why? • When someone asks, “Am I pretty?” and you respond with, “What a fancy dress,” the message some people hear is, “You’re so ugly the only nice thing I can do is compliment what you’re wearing.” So provide alternate answers with caution. • And it’s a basic human pleasure to behold and appreciate beauty — in a vista, in a flower, in a child’s face. It’s not a failing. • So please don’t be afraid to respond, “You sure do look pretty.” Every once in a while. But also look for what people do vs. just are. Dear Carolyn • My aunt recently died. She was a wealthy woman with no children, and always told my sister and me, “I’m taking care of you in my will.” We both assumed that meant

enough money to buy a house; she left us enough to buy a used car, and the rest to charity. My sister is absolutely furious with our aunt and just won’t let it go. My attitude is, it was my aunt’s money to do with as she chose. Is there a nice way I can tell my sister she’s being an entitled brat? — Anonymous Answer • She’ll change her thinking when she’s good and ready. You, however, don’t need to listen to her get there. Speak only of and for yourself: “I thought there would be more, too. I just don’t share your rage — it was Auntie’s prerogative. I am also through talking about it, because it won’t change anything.” Empathy, honesty, logic, out. Decline to discuss it again.

DR. KEITH ROACH

Arousal disorder is painful, disruptive to afflicted

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

DEAR DR. ROACH •

I have persistent genital arousal disorder. I find it incredibly difficult to talk about it with my doctors, and I’ve been openly mocked for it. I find there is a distinct lack of sensitivity in the medical community about this. People like me genuinely suffer in a variety of ways, whether it is from the physical side effects of being constantly aroused and unable to find relief, or from the psychological trauma and stress of being aroused in inappropriate situations, such as funerals and job interviews. Something so simple as a conversation with my own grandmother can be a horrible experience if I am having a symptom flare. I’ve had humiliating experiences over the years with doctors and nurses who have made inappropriate comments like, “How is this a bad thing?” or from accusations of being some kind of sexual deviant during annual pelvic exams. People with PGAD are not sexual deviants. We do not enjoy our condition. It’s physically painful, disruptive to our everyday lives and embarrassing. We are not people who have some kind of moral failing, and we’re not mentally ill. It would be sincerely appreciated if you could spread some awareness about PGAD so that sufferers like myself can have a more trusting relationship with our providers. — Anon.

DUPLEX • By Glenn McCoy

MARMADUKE • By Brad Anderson

Answer • I appreciate your writing, as I think most people — and even some providers — are not familiar with this condition. PGAD is a state of sexual arousal that is unwelcome, unrelated to desire and unrelieved by sexual intercourse. It is triggered by physical stimuli, such as traveling in a car, or by psychological stimuli, especially anxiety. It is almost exclusively described in women. Many describe the symptoms as painful. Some experts note similarities of PGAD and other pain syndromes, including chronic pelvic pain from neuropathy. There also seems to be a connection with restless leg syndrome, for unclear reasons. Many women report a history of sexual abuse. While antidepressants often are used to treat this condition, there also is some evidence that withdrawal from antidepressants can cause or worsen symptoms. There is no single treatment that is effective for everyone with PGAD. Counseling and medication are used. Cold packs or cold baths have been helpful for some. If there is a take-home message, it’s that people with this condition shouldn’t feel bad about it.
