Apparent breach of conidentiality agreement could expose Greitens to more troubles BY JACK SUNTRUP St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Gov. Eric Greitens faces an avalanche of legal troubles, but his apparent violation of a 2012 nondisclosure agreement could expose the embattled governor to a new courtroom battle. The revelation that Greitens, a Republican, signed the agreement with the charity he founded, The Mission Continues, is contained in a 23-page report released Wednesday by a special Missouri House committee investigating Greitens. His then-assistant, Krystal Proctor, also signed the same agreement. The four-page agreement states, in part, that Greitens would keep in confidence the charity’s “plans, lists, databases ... trade or business secrets.” But the House report concludes that Greitens took a charity donor list without The Mission Continues’ authorization and used it to raise

‘his is what we need to do,’ House minority leader says; ouster would be a Missouri irst BY KURT ERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Legisla-

tive leaders announced Thursday night that they will convene a special session on May 18 that could lead to the impeachment of Gov. Eric Greitens. The announcement was made at a news conference called by Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard and House Speaker Todd Richardson. The decision was made after 138 House members and 29 Senators signed a petition calling for the session on the controversies surrounding the governor. The session will begin an estimated 30 minutes after the regular session is set to end, Richard told reporters. Richard was not sure when senators would actually convene because the upper chamber’s duties are dependent on what the House does. “Keep in mind, it’s new terriSee HOUSE • Page A4

City’s credit rating again downgraded by Moody’s BY CELESTE BOTT St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Moody’s Investors

Service has once again downgraded St. Louis’ credit rating. St. Louis’ general-obligation rating fell from A3 to Baa1 on Wednesday, and ratings on revenue bonds also were downgraded. Obligations rated Baa are subject to moderate credit risk, which could mean higher borrowing costs for the city. It’s the latest in a troubling trend: Moody’s has cut the city’s rating four times in less than three years, with other drops in August 2015, October 2016 and March 2017. See RATING • Page A7

Joletta Hellems hugs a former neighbor as her friend Lashonda Daugherty watches on the porch of her Euclid Avenue home on Thursday, the day after Hellems’ son Oscar “OJ” Johnson III, 14, was shot to death in his bedroom. A 13-year-old is in custody.

Boy, 14, is fatally shot in his bedroom by 13-year-old, police say BY DENISE HOLLINSHED St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Cornice Brandon heard the gunshot that killed her 14-year-old brother Wednesday afternoon. The 19-year-old was in her bedroom doing a class assignment on her computer when she heard arguing from her brother’s room, where he and two other boys were hanging out. Then: “POW!” Her brother, Oscar “OJ” Johnson III, staggered from the room and fell on the hallway floor near the top of a steep set of stairs, blood gushing from a bullet wound to his chest. “OJ, get up,” one of the boys kept saying,

according to Brandon. “OJ, get up. Please don’t do this.” The third boy who’d been in the room ran from the house. OJ was rushed to a hospital after the shooting about 5 p.m. at his home in the 1200 block of North Euclid Avenue, near

Fountain Park. Doctors at St. Louis Children’s Hospital tried to save him, but he was pronounced dead later that night. “They had about 25 people working on him,” OJ’s mother, Joletta Hellems, said. “They worked on him for about an hour, then they told me that there wasn’t anything else they could do for him. He had died. My baby, my only son.” What exactly happened in that room isn’t clear, but police called OJ’s death a homicide and said they had arrested the suspected shooter, the 13-year-old boy who ran from the house. He was turned over to juvenile authorities. Brandon said her brother and the suspect were friends, but “disturbing” things had recently been posted on OJ’s Facebook page under the other boy’s name. She said she confronted him about the posts before the shooting Wednesday and the boy claimed they had been posted by someone else.

Donald Trump insisted Thursday that his reimbursement of a 2016 hush payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels had nothing to do with his election campaign. But the surprise revelation of the president’s payment clashed with his past statements, created new legal headaches and stunned many in the West Wing.

PEOPLE

Honoring irst responders is a tradition, not a political wedge At first, I was annoyed. My Wednesday commute on Highway 40 was slow. There was a Department of Transportation truck ahead with the flashing arrow limiting traic to one lane. I could see red and blue lights ahead and to my right, on the frontage road in west St. Louis County. Big accident, I assumed. I checked my watch. Gonna be late. The stress level rose. Then I saw the firetruck. On the overpass at Maryville Centre Drive, its ladder was raised, hoisting a massive American flag. Other emergency vehicles from around the St. Louis region were entering the highway. There was another flag on a truck at the Mason Road overpass. Uniformed first responders stood and saluted. This was not an accident, it was a procession to honor a fallen firefighter. Former Metro West Fire Chief Jim Silvernail was laid to rest Wednesday at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica. The retired fire chief worked previously in the Ballwin and Mehlville districts. He was 74. He didn’t die in the line of duty, but his highway procession reminded me of similar scenes I’ve seen over the years. No longer stressed by the slowed commute, I turned my thoughts to them. There was Timothy Mossbrucker, the Jeferson County sherif’s deputy shot in 1995 in an ambush at a grocery store in my hometown of Littleton, Colo. He left behind a wife and six children. There was Molly Bowden, the 26-year-old Columbia, Mo., police oicer killed in a traic stop just minutes from where I lived in 2005. I thought of my daughter, just promoted to sergeant in her suburban Denver police department, and said a little prayer that if there is ever such a procession for her it is, like Silvernail, in her retirement. I thought of my son and sonin-law, both on the fire team at the oil refinery where they work, trained to rush into disaster to protect their co-workers and neighbors.

DIGEST ST. LOUIS > Kingshighway closing at I-44 for weekend • Drivers who normally use South Kingshighway near Interstate 44 must find another route this weekend because the street will be closed in that area. The Missouri Department of Transportation plans to close Kingshighway under the highway at 9 p.m. Friday to allow for the demolition of the eastbound I-44 bridge over the street. The shutdown will be between Shaw Avenue and the ramp to westbound I-44. That ramp and others at the interchange will remain open, as will I-44. The afected stretch of Kingshighway will reopen to traic by 6 a.m. Monday, although one lane in each direction will be closed until mid-August. The bridge replacement work is part of an ongoing efort to rebuild or renovate six I-44 bridges in the city. SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Clif Cave County Park improvements complete • Improvements to Clif Cave County Park, including a 2-mile trail extension and a new Mississippi River scenic overlook, will open to the public after a ribbon-cutting event at 10:15 a.m. Friday. Completion of the $4.3 million project also will be marked by a community celebration on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. on the park’s lower parking lot. The celebration will include music, games, free snow cones and wales for the first 250 visitors, yoga

Sitting in traic on a backed-up highway, I turned to my fellow commuters, as we all paid our respects to a fellow American who had dedicated his life to keeping us safe. The moment reminded me of Sept. 11, 2001, when I was on one of the final airplanes to be allowed to land in Kansas City that morning, after a weekend watching football with my son in Denver. Driving home on Interstate 70 that day, drivers made eye contact and with a nod recognized that we knew something dramatically important in our country’s history was happening that day, but we didn’t quite comprehend what it was. We were all Americans, grateful for the first responders who rushed to danger as others fled. There was a unity in tragedy. And that brought me to Joe Buck. Last week, Buck was the emcee of a solemn event, an annual memorial hosted by the St. Louis Police Chiefs Association that honors fallen oicers. The event got more press coverage than normal because Gov. Eric Greitens, facing two felonies in the city and under a barrage of political and legal attacks, was the keynote speaker. Buck, the sportscaster, used the moment to be divisive. “Frankly, I’m glad the press is here,” he said, adding, “I would say to anyone with a camera or a microphone, where have you been?” Where have we been? It’s the question asked by somebody who seeks to use first responders as political props. You’re with us or you’re against us. It’s a game Greitens knows well, taking politically motivated pictures with young cops working

and hiking classes and a 30-minute nature walk. Bicycles and helmets will be available for rental. The project, funded by the Great Rivers Greenway district, extends an existing 5-mile paved trail up a bluf to the new river overlook. The project also included additional parking and restrooms, a 210foot pedestrian bridge over Clif Cave Road to connect visitors to the overlook and a 70-foot bridge over a creek. Also included are new native trees, shrubs and flowers. The project also includes a new crosswalk across Telegraph Road to the park at Erb Road. BRIDGETON > Utility tax hike to take efect June 1 • An increase in Bridgeton’s utility tax on nonresidential customers goes into efect on June 1, by action Wednesday night of the City Council. Voters authorized the increase — the first since 1967 — by a 68 percent majority last month. The increase is designed to meet general fund cost increases in an era of stagnant revenue, producing $1 million in new money annually. The rate on water, gas, electric and local phone service for nonresidential customers goes to 7.5 percent from 5 percent; residential customers are not afected. The city now gets $2.8 million annually from the tax, with about 80 percent paid by nonresidential customers. After the changes, nonresidential customers will pay about 85 percent.

out at a police academy, or donning fire gear to train with firefighters rushing into a burning building. My colleague, Robert Cohen, answered Buck’s question. He posted several photos, of police oicers rehabbing after being shot and at memorials similar to the one held Wednesday for Silvernail, in which the press was there recording every word, every moment, every tear. When first responders die, we unite because of the simple math in the human equation. Police and firefighters put their lives on the line for us, thus, sometimes, keeping us alive, while they perish. Nearly all Americans — Republicans and Democrats, black, white and brown — respect that commitment. We sit in traic as the funeral procession passes and in a small way, pay our respects as much to honor those who have died as those who stand on the overpass saluting the flag. Honoring those who choose to serve isn’t a contest to be played by politicians, or celebrities, or police union spokespeople who turn any criticism into an attack on the profession. Too often, in a political world that seems ever more divided, that’s how it plays out, though. A solemn procession of flashing lights during a morning commute this week served as a reminder that it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes, we’re all just Americans, meandering down the same highway in different lanes, pursuing dreams that for some end too early.

ELLISVILLE > Council approves updated 911 contract • The City Council approved on Wednesday night an updated agreement with St. Louis County for emergency communication system services. City Manager Bill Schwer said the new agreement includes technology not in the original 1979 cooperative agreement that Ellisville — and other cities — had approved with the county. The Next Generation 911 services were created after St. Louis County voters, in November 2009, approved a one-tenth of 1 percent special emergency communications system sales tax. The tax was meant to fund creation of a countywide wireless radio communication network providing links that permit participating cities and other governmental entities to communicate on one system within the boundaries of the county. “The new technology, in the updated agreement, allows dispatchers to be able to handle additional data from those calling in for emergencies, such as video, text messaging, and enhanced locational routing of calls,” Schwer said.

Say goodbye to Hollywood, Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski. The Academy announced Thursday that the disgraced comedian and the scandalplagued director had been expelled from the prestigious organization. “The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors met on Tuesday night and has voted to expel actor Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from its membership in accordance with the organization’s Standards of Conduct,” the organization said in a statement. The decision comes one week after Cosby, 80, was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Polanski, a five-time Oscar nominee, was arrested in Switzerland in 2009 on a threedecade-old warrant stemming from the rape in 1977 of a 13-year-old girl. Polanski, 84, fled the United States in 1978 while awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to the rape. Released rapper urges justice reforms • Philadelphia-born rapper Meek Mill is calling on Pennsylvania lawmakers to reform the state’s parole and probation systems. Mill appeared alongside Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and a half-dozen state lawmakers Thursday at the Constitution Center to advocate for criminal justice reforms. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered Mill’s release last week from prison where he was serving a two- to four-year sentence on a probation violation related to a decadeold gun and drug conviction. Mill has since spoken out about the need for reform.

Video recordings of Greitens’ trial denied Judge cites security risks, discussions with ‘parties in the case’ BY JOEL CURRIER AND ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Circuit Judge Rex Burlison on Thursday ruled against a request from news media for video recording equipment at the invasion of privacy trial for Gov. Eric Greitens set to start May 14. Jury selection begins Thursday. In making his decision, Burlison said he weighed security risks of having a sitting Missouri governor in the courthouse as well as discussions with “the parties in the case.” “The real separation of this case from other cases is that it’s a criminal case,”

said Burlison, who has allowed video in his courtroom in the past, notably several talcum powder civil trials over the past two years. The judge said he would consider a request for audio equipment and still photography after an attorney for the media asked him to reconsider. Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers stated their position publicly in court. Spokeswoman Susan Ryan said Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner was not opposed to cameras in the courtroom. However, in March, Ryan said “cameras in the courtroom could potentially compromise the ability for both the victim and the defendant to receive justice.” In his motion seeking permission for video cameras, media lawyer Mark Sableman said that prosecutors and Greitens’ lawyers did not respond to his request for a position on the issue. Sableman wrote that neither side appeared “willing to take a position without knowing its adversary’s position.” Sableman said that Greitens’ accuser was against cameras. He said audio trans-

mission of her testimony would be the least intrusive of all the options. On Thursday, Sableman filed a revised motion requesting still cameras and audio recording equipment be allowed at the trial. An attorney for the woman has previously said they would oppose cameras in the courtroom. Outside the courthouse, Sableman speculated that prosecutors’ earlier objection was based on the woman’s opposition. He said cameras would focus only on the participants, not the jury or the audience. Sableman also said the public would get a better picture of the proceedings with video or audio coverage, saying it was an “antidote to spin” as well as misleading quotes or errors. The renewed motion for cameras in the courtroom was among several filed or renewed this week. Greitens’ attorneys filed a wide-ranging series of motions seeking to exclude witnesses and evidence from the trial including the testimony of the woman who accuses him of taking a nude picture without

her permission in March 2015. Prosecutors filed their own motion seeking to shield any discussion of the woman’s sexual, counseling or psychiatric history, based on extensive questioning on those topics during her deposition. They say she should be treated the same way as a witness protected under the state’s “rape shield” law. The defense team reiterated its desire to see the case dismissed, saying there is no photograph or evidence that the woman saw Greitens with a smartphone when she heard the sound of a camera shutter. Greitens was indicted in February on a felony charge of invasion of privacy. In a tape recording of a conversation between the woman’s ex-husband and the woman, she says Greitens threatened to release the photo if she told anyone about their encounter. Greitens has denied blackmailing the woman and has called the investigation a “political witch hunt.” Joel Currier • 314-621-5804 @joelcurrier on Twitter jcurrier@post-dispatch.com

might be issued and to whom were not available Thursday, but former Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Edward “Chip” Robertson Jr., an attorney for the legislative committee, said it would happen. Robertson’s pledge came in response to Greitens’ campaign attorney Catherine Hanaway, who complained that the committee didn’t give the campaign a chance to be heard before it released the blistering report. Only one Greitens aide who was involved in the campaign during its early stages remains on the governor’s staf. Jennae Neustadt, who is the governor’s legislative director, is listed in the committee’s report as being at some of the planning meetings Greitens was having as he plotted his bid for statewide oice. Other aides came to the campaign after his original team had departed and left the campaign payroll before the ethics commission settlement. Greitens’ spokesman Parker Briden, who also was on the campaign payroll, said no taxpayer dollars would be used if stafers were subpoenaed. “Counsel for the Oice of the Governor would not represent any staf member in connection with testimony regarding campaign matters,” Briden said Thursday. Among those who continue to be paid by the campaign and could face questioning before the committee are campaign manager Austin Chambers, finance director Meredith Gibbons and Scott Turk, who returned to the campaign after working in the governor’s oice last year. Greitens’ problems also won’t end with the committee.

The agreement states that the charity is “entitled” to pursue “remedies,” which include asking for a court order to stop use of the donor list, and which allow the charity to recoup attorneys fees related to legal action it takes. The document also says a breach of the document would cause “irreparable harm” to the organization, which Greitens founded in 2007. Spencer Kympton, president of The Mission Continues, which helps veterans adjust to life after returning home, said in a March 5 letter to donors that it did not authorize the use of the donor list. “Perhaps the most disappointing aspect of the Greitens campaign’s action is the disruption it has created,” Kympton said. Laura L’Esperance, spokeswoman for The Mission Continues, said Thursday that the organization would have no comment on what civil action it might take against Greitens. “I can’t comment on what future litigation we may pursue or not,” she told the Post-Dispatch. According to the House report, Kympton told the bipartisan committee that “the [The Mission Continues nondisclosure agreement] applied to the TMC donor list. When asked if there was an exception to the NDA for political activity, Kympton responded, ‘There are no exceptions.’” Catherine Hanaway and James Bennett, two attorneys representing Greitens, did not respond to a request for comment on Thursday. While Greitens’ signature on a nondisclosure agreement was news, Greitens has a history of asking his subordinates to sign such documents. The House report notes that 17 days after Greitens obtained the charity donor list in question, he asked his then-campaign adviser Daniel Laub to sign an agreement barring him from sharing “donor lists” with third parties. The Post-Dispatch reported in December 2016 that Greitens asked members of his transition team to sign confidentiality agreements. After news of Greitens’ extramarital affair broke in January, the Post-Dispatch and Columbia Missourian attempted to contact 60 former Greitens campaign workers who may have been asked to sign such agreements. Though use of the agreements is common in modern politics, one former Greitens staffer who did sign an agreement worried they were having a “chilling effect” on those who wished to share information publicly that could damage the governor. Former staffers “almost feel like this could be a muzzle preventing them from talking about their experience working for Eric,” said the former staffer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In Greitens’ case, the House report states that the future governor asked for a copy of the donor list as he was transitioning out of the charity’s CEO role in May 2014. He was supposed to use the donor list to assure donors of a smooth transition. After Greitens left, he began preparing for his run for governor. Proctor testified to the House committee that Greitens had mentioned multiple times “the importance of the TMC donor list to support future political fundraising eforts.” On Jan. 6, 2015, Proctor emailed the list to Laub and another stafer, Michael Hafner. Hafner and Proctor both testified that Greitens had directed that the list be transmitted. On April 25, 2015, Proctor emailed the list to Meredith Gibbons, the finance director for Greitens for Missouri. Proctor told the House committee that she had acted at Greitens’ direction.

Video recordings of Greitens’ trial denied Judge cites security risks, discussions with ‘parties in the case’ BY JOEL CURRIER AND ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Circuit Judge Rex Burlison on Thursday ruled against a request from news media for video recording equipment at the invasion of privacy trial for Gov. Eric Greitens set to start May 14. Jury selection begins Thursday. In making his decision, Burlison said he weighed security risks of having a sitting Missouri governor in the courthouse as well as discussions with “the parties in the case.” “The real separation of this case from other cases is that it’s a criminal case,”

said Burlison, who has allowed video in his courtroom in the past, notably several talcum powder civil trials over the past two years. The judge said he would consider a request for audio equipment and still photography after an attorney for the media asked him to reconsider. Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers stated their position publicly in court. Spokeswoman Susan Ryan said Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner was not opposed to cameras in the courtroom. However, in March, Ryan said “cameras in the courtroom could potentially compromise the ability for both the victim and the defendant to receive justice.” In his motion seeking permission for video cameras, media lawyer Mark Sableman said that prosecutors and Greitens’ lawyers did not respond to his request for a position on the issue. Sableman wrote that neither side appeared “willing to take a position without knowing its adversary’s position.” Sableman said that Greitens’ accuser was against cameras. He said audio trans-

mission of her testimony would be the least intrusive of all the options. On Thursday, Sableman filed a revised motion requesting still cameras and audio recording equipment be allowed at the trial. An attorney for the woman has previously said they would oppose cameras in the courtroom. Outside the courthouse, Sableman speculated that prosecutors’ earlier objection was based on the woman’s opposition. He said cameras would focus only on the participants, not the jury or the audience. Sableman also said the public would get a better picture of the proceedings with video or audio coverage, saying it was an “antidote to spin” as well as misleading quotes or errors. The renewed motion for cameras in the courtroom was among several filed or renewed this week. Greitens’ attorneys filed a wide-ranging series of motions seeking to exclude witnesses and evidence from the trial including the testimony of the woman who accuses him of taking a nude picture without

Lyle Rowland, R-Cedarcreek, also has signed the petition but has not publicly called for impeachment. He said he wanted the special session because it would allow the body to focus on legislation in the final days of the regular session. The committee, meanwhile, continues to investigate the governor and is planning to subpoena top Greitens aides to discuss the governor’s fundraising practices. A date for when those subpoenas might be issued and to whom were not available Thursday, but former Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Edward “Chip” Robertson Jr., an attorney for the legislative committee, said it would happen. Robertson’s pledge came in response to Greitens’ campaign attorney Catherine Hanaway, who complained that the committee didn’t give the campaign a chance to be heard before it released the blistering report. Only one Greitens aide who was involved in the campaign during its early stages remains on the governor’s staf. Jennae Neustadt, who is the governor’s legislative director, is listed in the com-

mittee’s report as being at some of the planning meetings Greitens was having as he plotted his bid for statewide oice. Other aides came to the campaign after his original team had departed and left the campaign payroll before the ethics commission settlement. Greitens’ spokesman Parker Briden, who also was on the campaign payroll, said no taxpayer dollars would be used if stafers were subpoenaed. “Counsel for the Oice of the Governor would not represent any staf member in connection with testimony regarding campaign matters,” Briden said Thursday. Among those who continue to be paid by the campaign and could face questioning before the committee are campaign manager Austin Chambers, finance director Meredith Gibbons and Scott Turk, who returned to the campaign after working in the governor’s oice last year. Greitens’ problems also won’t end with the committee. In addition to facing the May 14 trial on felony invasion of privacy charges related to his afair, Attorney General Josh Hawley’s oice also continues to investigate the governor. “Our investigation is ongoing,” Hawley spokeswoman Mary Compton said.

her permission in March 2015. Prosecutors filed their own motion seeking to shield any discussion of the woman’s sexual, counseling or psychiatric history, based on extensive questioning on those topics during her deposition. They say she should be treated the same way as a witness protected under the state’s “rape shield” law. The defense team reiterated its desire to see the case dismissed, saying there is no photograph or evidence that the woman saw Greitens with a smartphone when she heard the sound of a camera shutter. Greitens was indicted in February on a felony charge of invasion of privacy. In a tape recording of a conversation between the woman’s ex-husband and the woman, she says Greitens threatened to release the photo if she told anyone about their encounter. Greitens has denied blackmailing the woman and has called the investigation a “political witch hunt.”

the intersection of Interstate 70 and South Fifth Street on Thursday evening left a man with what police said were non-lifethreatening injuries.

A 26-year-old man was struck in the arm, police said. All three men ran toward Bufalo Wild Wings. The van then sped of toward South Fifth

One of the men running from the scene put a backpack with a gun in it underneath a vehicle, Lt. Thomas Wilkison said.

Water rates could increase in measure sent to governor BY SKY CHADDE St. Louis Post-dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • The Legislature sent a measure that could increase water rates to the governor on Thursday. The proposal allows water companies to request rate increases outside of the state’s normal rate-making process, which can take up to a year as the state negotiates rates that are “just and reasonable.” A state analysis of the bill says the Oice of Administration assumes the measure would lead to increased water rates, but that the amounts of such increases are unknown. During the rate-making process, the state and utilities set a certain amount of money the companies can make of rate increases. However, sometimes utilities don’t reach the authorized amount because, for instance, customers didn’t use as much water as anticipated. The proposal would allow companies to make up the diference. “That’s part of the beauty of this bill,” Rep. Jack Bondon, R-Belton, said Thursday. “It makes sure the utility does not overcollect as much as it makes sure they do not undercollect.” Bondon emphasized that the Public Service Commission, which regulates monopoly utilities, would retain the final say over rates for water companies. Utilities have long argued that the rate-making process creates what they call “regulatory lag,” meaning the time it takes to set rates that are fair to consumers prevents them from investing in infrastructure. Rep. Tracy McCreery, D-St. Louis, wanted to change the measure to explicitly outlaw raising rates if the utility didn’t meet its revenue expectations through its own actions. McCreery — a member of the Consumers Council of Missouri, which has opposed most utility legislation — pointed to a case involving Missouri

American Water. Some customers’ meters stopped recording water usage, so the utility used the previous year’s usage for billing. The utility never disclosed the problem while it negotiated new rates, she said. “If we’re going to pass something that benefits a monopoly water company, at the very least we should have a consumer protection built in,” she said, “so if they have faulty meters, our consumers are not paying for the diference.” The House voted down her amendment on Thursday. During the rate negotiations involving the faulty meters, Missouri American Water proposed a similar policy to the legislation approved Thursday: If it didn’t collect the amount authorized by the state, it could raise rates. At the time, water use around the country was dropping. A representative for Missouri American Water testified in favor of the bill this year, according to Senate records. A similar provision was part of a proposal enacted last year. When an ice storm knocked Ameren’s largest customer, aluminum producer Noranda, offline for months, the utility didn’t make as much money as the state authorized. Ameren asked the state permission to make up the diference by raising electric rates. But regulators called the request “inappropriate” and “unlawful,” arguing that it was up to the customer how much electricity was used, not the utility, according to the Columbia Missourian. “We see this as: We give away the upside (and) aren’t exposed to the downside,” Ameren’s vice president of communications, Warren Wood, told the paper last year. The legislation is Senate Bill 705. Kurt Erickson of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

Majority of Missourians want new senator, according to poll BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-dispatch

WASHINGTON • More than half of Missourians say they want to elect a new U.S. senator, according to a new Morning Consult poll that also shows Sen. Claire McCaskill with the worst job-approval ratings of any incumbent Democrat running in states won by President Donald Trump. The poll showed McCaskill with a 38 percent approval rating and 45 percent disapproval, with 53 percent saying it was “time for a new person” in the seat. The poll, taken between February and April, also showed that 29 percent believe McCaskill deserves re-election. By contrast, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., another Democrat up for re-election in a state won by Trump, had a 54-34 positive to negative rating in the poll, with 43 percent saying he deserved re-election. Trump-aligned political committees have been attacking Tester on television in Montana for Tester’s role in the demise of the nomination of Trump’s Veterans Afairs choice, Dr. Ronny Jackson. The Morning Consult poll also showed Missourians countering national trends and giving Republicans a 5-percentagepoint advantage when asked if they’d rather see Democrats or Republicans control Congress. Nationally, Democrats hold a 40-35 percent advantage on that question. McCaskill has consistently said she’s an underdog in the race, but turmoil among Republicans over the scandal involving Gov. Eric Greitens and the decision by Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, not to challenge McCaskill have given Democrats greater confidence that she can win re-election. Democratic internal polling has shown McCaskill holding slight leads over her leading Republican opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley. He has called on Greitens to resign, but

g ! n i r E Sp L SAA LL

by virtue of his position and his challenge of McCaskill, Hawley has been pulled into the politics surrounding the governor’s indictment and upcoming May 14 trial. In the Morning Consult poll, McCaskill comes in slightly below Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who had a 41-46 approval-disapproval ratio, and is running in a state where 53 percent of respondents also said it is time for “someone else” to be in the seat. Trump’s approval nationally was 42 percent, with 54 percent disapproval, a 12-point negative gap. But he was a positive 3 in Missouri, at 49-46, the Morning Consult poll said, although he’s become a very divisive figure in the state. Trump had a 73-point net positive among Republicans, a 74-point net negative among Democrats, and a 7-point net negative among independents, according to the poll. On issues, Missourians mirrored national trends, putting the economy as a top concern (28 percent) followed by security at 19 percent and health care at 16. McCaskill will hold a health care meeting at CareSTL Health, at 5471 Martin Luther King Drive in St. Louis, on Friday. It’s one of dozens of public meetings she has held in the state leading into the Nov. 6 election. She has also built a huge lead in campaign fundraising over Hawley and is poised to pad that lead Saturday with a fundraising event in Beverly Hills, Calif., co-hosted by movie director Steven Spielberg. Morning Consult, which often twins with Politico in polling, said it based its new analysis on interviews between Feb. 1 and April 30 with 275,000 registered voters. That sample over a three-month period has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. The Missouri sample was 6,760, with a margin of error of plus or minus 1 percentage point, a spokesman for Morning Consult said.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Suspect charged in fatal shooting • Noah Conner’s friend tried to save his life Wednesday by driving him to the hospital after he was shot, but it was too late, police say. Police say Conner, 22, died after being shot multiple times in the 3700 block of South Compton Avenue. On Thursday, Tamieko Nicole Dixon, 45, of the 3900 block of Nebraska Avenue, was charged with irst-degree murder, armed criminal action and child endangerment. Bail information was not available. Charging documents say witnesses told police that after riding in the back seat of a vehicle and arguing with Conner, Dixon shot him several times. Police said a 1-year-old child was in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, which is why Dixon was charged with child endangerment. Originally, the city’s ShotSpotter system alerted police to gunshots about 3 p.m. in the area of South Compton Avenue and Chippewa Street on the border of the Dutchtown and Gravois Park neighborhoods. While there, oicers were notiied that Conner had been taken to a hospital by a friend. Conner lived in the 3400 block of Connecticut Street. IMPERIAL > Man charged with arson, kidnapping • A man from Jeferson County tried to set his house on ire, went to a neighboring home to use the phone and then took the neighbors hostage at knifepoint Wednesday, police say. Authorities were able to get the hostages away from the man, and he was arrested. No one was injured. The man, Kylie Kunzie, 45, of the 1100 block of Wolf Hollow Road, was Kunzie charged with arson, armed criminal action and kidnapping. His bail was set at $100,000.

Police say Kunzie called 911 to report a ire in his home just before 7 a.m. Wednesday. Five minutes later, he called again saying he was at a nearby home in the 6000 block of Hulda Drive and holding a man and a woman hostage. It wasn’t clear why. The irst deputy to arrive saw Kunzie through a screen window holding a knife to a man. The deputy was able to negotiate the woman’s release, according to a news release from the sherif’s department. Kunzie then walked onto the front porch, still holding a knife to the male neighbor within feet of the deputy. The deputy was able to grab the victim by his wrist and pull him away from Kunzie, police said. Kunzie went back into the home, and negotiations with him to surrender continued. Deputies saw him armed with a rile, but after several minutes, he came out and surrendered peacefully to deputies. JEFFERSON CITY > Ex-aide to lawmaker faces child porn charges • Carter Ballmann, a political consultant and former legislative aide to a Maryland Heights state representative, was indicted by a grand jury Thursday on federal child pornography charges. Ballmann faces two felony charges: attempted production and attempted receipt of child porn. Ballmann, 24, of Jeferson City, was arrested last month and accused by the Boone County sherif’s oice of trying to entice an undercover oicer posing as a 14-year-old girl into to sending him nude pictures and sneaking out of the house. Charging documents claimed he sent texts containing the speciic sex acts he wanted to engage in. The state charge has been dismissed. The federal indictment claims the activity occurred between April 9 and April 11. He was arrested April 17 at the state Capitol after police searched his home. Ballmann has been

ordered detained in jail until trial. His attorney declined to comment Thursday. Ballmann was working for Rep. Mark Matthiesen, R-Maryland Heights, at the time of his arrest. ST. CLAIR COUNTY > Postal contractor admits stealing mail • A postal service contractor pleaded guilty to a federal mail theft charge Thursday and admitted stealing cash and gift cards from the mail and dumping the rest. Paul S. Miller was a highway contract route driver, delivering mail between post oices. In a plea agreement iled Thursday, Miller admitted taking objects from the mail between Oct. 6 and Dec. 1 in St. Clair County and elsewhere. A postmaster had already received complaints about missing cash and gift cards when another postmaster spotted undelivered mail in a recycling bin behind a post oice on Nov. 22, prompting an investigation that made similar discoveries elsewhere, Miller’s plea says. Investigators watched as Miller dumped mail several times, and caught him removing mail from the back of his truck on Dec. 1, the plea says. They found a $20 bill that they’d planted in the mail in his pocket and had

video of him using a stolen gift card at a Walmart, the plea says. Miller admitted discarding mail at post oices and a gas station. Miller is scheduled to be sentenced in August for the crime. OVERLAND > Suspect charged in attack on ofduty deputy • A St. Louis County man was charged Thursday with assaulting an of-duty sherif’s deputy who was riding a Metro bus to work a day earlier. William E. Wright, 26, of the 1400 block of Wishart Place in unincorporated St. Louis County near Overland, was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault. Wright is accused of punching St. Louis sherif’s Deputy Corian Byrd, 25, of St. Louis, on a Metro bus about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in Overland. Byrd said in an interview Wednesday that he suspects he was targeted because he was wearing his uniform. Byrd said the man sat down next to him on a nearly empty bus, looked at him and when Byrd asked if he was OK, the man began punching him in the face. Byrd said he was armed only with pepper spray, which he said he could not quickly reach before the man began punching him in the face without provocation.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Motorcyclist killed in crash • A motorcyclist was fatally injured Wednesday night after colliding with a pickup that pulled into its path on Midland Boulevard, police say. Police identiied the motorcyclist as Shawn Ricks, 21, of the 600 block of Foxtail Drive in the Old Jamestown area of North County. The driver of the pickup was a 71-year-old man. He was uninjured. Police say the crash was just after 11 p.m. Wednesday at Midland and Ashby Road. Ricks’ Suzuki motorcycle had been heading west on Midland. The pickup was at a business in the 10800 block of Midland Boulevard and was trying to turn onto Midland, heading east. The motorcycle struck the side of the pickup when it turned in its path. Ricks was taken to a hospital, where he died. DE SOTO > Shooting victim dies • A 41-year-old man shot about midnight

Wednesday died despite eforts by police and paramedics to save him, oicials said. The man was shot inside a residence on the corner of Boyd and Sixth streets, police said. De Soto police are investigating the incident along with Jeferson County law enforcement, but so far they have no suspects, oicials said. Police urge anyone with information to call De Soto police at 636-586-8891. ST. LOUIS > Teacher accused of striking student • A teacher accused of striking a student on Wednesday at Herzog Elementary School was in custody Thursday, police oicials said.

Chesterield teen, recent Parkway Struggling Central grad, dies in bike accident St. Louis schools will be given new alternatives

BY ERIN HEFFERNAN St. Louis Post-dispatch

CHESTERFIELD • A 19-year-old col-

lege student from Chesterfield died Wednesday after he was struck by a pickup while riding a bicycle near his university in Indiana. Lucas Shanker, a sophomore at Purdue University, was struck Tuesday afternoon on a road about 3 miles from his campus in West Lafayette, Ind., according to the Tippecanoe County sherif’s oice. He was pronounced dead at a hospital the next day. Shanker had many credits at a young age: he played the cello, learned to arrange music, helped develop an app for his campus and studied computer science. “He was a beautiful soul,” said Shanker’s mother, Karen Shanker. “He was kind, so smart and a true, true friend.” Lucas Shanker was a graduate of Parkway Central High School, where he participated in the orchestra and the environmental group Operation 350.

This photo, submitted by the Shanker family, shows Lucas Shanker, 19, of Chesterield, who died May 2 after he was hit while riding a bike in Indiana.

He was a gifted musician who traveled to play with the National Orchestra and composed his own version of songs from his favorite video games that he posted on YouTube. He developed an interest in technology and majored in computer science and mathematics at Purdue. During his time at the school, he developed an app that helped students locate their favorite food around campus. But Shanker also loved to be active and in the outdoors, his parents said. He was a member of the Purdue running club and enjoyed hiking and biking. “He really touched a lot of people,” said his father, Michael Shanker. “It’s not uncommon for people to come up to us to say how much they loved educating our son or how much they enjoyed being around him. It happens all the time.” The funeral for Lucas Shanker will be at United Hebrew Congregation at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Brandon said she tried to perform CPR on her brother after he was shot. She screamed for help. Police arrived and carried him down the steep stairs. Hellems, 50, arrived as they were bringing her son out. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. A neighbor drove Hellems. She saw her son before he went into surgery. She held his hand. Friends stopped by Thursday to express their condolences. One friend said when someone dies and it rains, it’s a sign that they went to heaven. “He got his wings,” his mother said as she looked up into the sky. “He was a good boy. He didn’t hang out (on the street). He played games, watched movies and played with his dog, Cocoa.” OJ attended Yeatman-Liddell Preparatory Middle School and was in the eighth grade. He had four sisters, in-

“He was real playful, but he was never disrespectful,” Watson said. “He was a beautiful young man — he would never sag, he always went to school, and played basketball.” The boy was “always smiling,” Watson remembered Wednesday night, commiserating on her porch with her daughter and a neighbor as they watched police investigate the home next door. “You need to let people know, he was not a thug,” Watson said. Neighbor Tifany Fitzgerald said the violence in the city has gone too far. Crime is up in the Fountain Park neighborhood, one of the 10 neighborhoods in the city with the highest crime rates. “My family is moving out of town next year, when our lease is up,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve got to get out of St. Louis, Missouri.” Nassim Benchaabane and Rachel Rice of the PostDispatch contributed to this report.

St. Louis’ credit downgrade cited as a ‘wake-up call’ RATING • FROM A1

The agency attributed the city’s latest downgrade in part to its “weakened reserve position, which will remain challenged over the near term despite recent revenue enhancements and policy changes that seek to rebuild narrow reserves.” The city sets aside a certain amount of money in case it needs to weather an economic downturn. The reserve target is at minimum 5 percent of the St. Louis budget, currently $25.8 million, but the existing reserves haven’t recovered from the 2008 recession, leaving only a balance of roughly $16.5 million. Other factors Moody’s considered include a reliance on “economically sensitive revenue streams,” elevated debt and mounting pension costs. Moody’s did revise the city’s financial outlook to “stable,” citing a recent vote by top city oicials to dedicate 1.5 percent of annual payroll expenditures to bolstering the city’s savings. That will put an additional $3.5 million into reserves. “I hope (the budget) goes through the Board of Aldermen with that intact. Because it’s important. And this Moody’s downgrade is just a good ex-

ample of how important it is,” Mayor Lyda Krewson told the Post-Dispatch. “If we do that for a little while, for a few years, which I intend to do, these ratings will come back up.” Comptroller Darlene Green said the downgrade should serve as a “wakeup call” to city leaders as they consider tax incentives for developers going forward. “This downgrade should be unacceptable to all St. Louisans. And what is most disappointing is that it did not have to happen,” Green said in a statement. “Moody’s warned us in March 2017 that we cannot continue increasing the city’s general fund debt for nonessentials. Then, I immediately warned city leaders that we could not fund nonessential projects like the renovation of Scottrade Center without a negative consequence. Yet other city leaders did not collaborate on an alternate financing structure.” Green had initially refused to sign a financial agreement that funded the city’s commitment to renovations of Scottrade Center, home of the St. Louis Blues, because she said it would hurt the city’s credit rating. Kiel Center Partners, the group that owns the Blues, filed a lawsuit that was eventu-

ST. LOUIS • While the city’s school district as

ally settled in January. Krewson said she voted against the Scottrade deal when she was an alderman but felt that once she became mayor, she had to “uphold the word of the city.” “You can single out one item if you want. And I understand that (Green) is doing that. But it’s a whole lot of different things. And fundamentally, it’s that our tax base is not strong enough to provide the revenue stream for the services that we need to provide,” she said. “That’s it in a nutshell.” The new rating comes as the St. Louis Board of Aldermen begins the process of reviewing the fiscal 2019 budget, which contains cuts to make up for an estimated $10 million shortfall. Additionally, a bond issue will go before St. Louis voters in August, when they’ll decide if the city should borrow about $50 million for new equipment for the fire department, bridge repairs, and renovations to city-owned buildings such as City Hall, courthouses and correctional facilities. That includes the installation of permanent air conditioning for the City Workhouse.

BY KRISTEN TAKETA St. Louis Post-dispatch

a whole won back full state accreditation last year, state scores show that about half of the district’s more than 70 schools are not performing well. Only about half of the district’s schools scored in the fully accredited range in 2016, the last year for which state school accountability data were complete. About a dozen schools scored in the bottom, the unaccredited range. Some of these poorly performing schools have done so for years, despite previous reform eforts by district leaders, which included rebranding struggling schools as themed “pilot” schools and putting schools under direct superintendent supervision in so-called “superintendent zones.” “A fundamentally new approach is needed to address those schools,” Superintendent Kelvin Adams said Thursday at a Special Administrative Board meeting. “Unless we’re able to move our neediest students in our most challenging schools, then we have not been successful.” So Adams is trying one more strategy before the district transitions into different School Board leadership: having those schools run more like charter schools. The Special Administrative Board on Thursday unanimously approved a plan written by Adams to turn the district’s lowest-performing schools into “consortium schools.” These schools will be freed from district rules and structures related to academics and operations, which means they will have autonomy in decisions such as setting their own curriculum and school day length, paying staf and spending money. The idea is that a consortium approach can combine the kind of autonomy that charter schools enjoy with district institutional knowledge and local control to make it easier to be innovative. Charter schools are independently run public schools. By embracing school autonomy, Adams is taking an opposite direction from the “superintendent zone” approach he tried four years ago. Instead of being run by the school district, the consortium schools will run themselves. But the schools could choose to contract with the district for services in areas such as food service, human resources, legal counsel and facilities. The consortium network is similar to “innovation schools” or “portfolio schools” that have become increasingly popular in cities across the country, including Denver, Indianapolis and New Orleans. St. Louis’ consortium network will be modeled after the Springfield Empowerment Zone Partnership in Springfield, Mass. The school district there is similar in size and structure to the St. Louis district, Adams said. He and St. Louis teachers union President Sally Topping will meet with Empowerment Zone oicials in Springfield next month. Under Adams’ plan, a new, five-member consortium board that includes the superintendent and one Special Administrative Board member would oversee the consortium schools. The Special Administrative Board will appoint the consortium board members. The consortium board, which will report to the Special Administrative Board, will not dictate decisions for the consortium schools but instead ensure that the schools are following the plans that they wrote for themselves. As soon as next week, Adams will hire a consortium superintendent who will be responsible for leading the construction of the consortium. That superintendent will stay at least a year and may be kept on by the consortium board in some leadership capacity, Adams said. Oicials may also decide to hire an outside organization to help set up the consortium, Adams added. The consortium startup costs will be funded by an anonymous $400,000 donation the district received, Adams said. Teams of lead teachers and principals, rather than just principals or district administrators, will make decisions at each school. This local control of schools will help reduce the bureaucratic red tape that often burdens schools and slows innovative improvements, Adams said. “The belief is that we can make quicker decisions, faster decisions to turn around schools,” Adams said. Teachers at consortium schools will still be part of the district union, but it will require a special agreement with the union. No teachers or principals will be fired when their schools are assimilated into the consortium, Adams said, but they will have a choice to stay or leave. Adams said he expects the consortium board will be formed by the end of June with the goal of having its first meeting in July. District officials will spend the next school year setting the groundwork for the consortium, including identifying schools and writing school plans. The consortium schools will open in August 2019. The plan is for the consortium school network to last for at least three years, Adams said.

‘Who wouldn’t cry for their children?’ hree years into a civil war, Yemen is starving; widespread death from famine feared

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Umm Mizrah, 25, holds her son Mizrah on a scale in Al-Sadaqa Hospital in the southern Yemen city of Aden on Feb. 13. Mizrah, who was 17 months old, weighed 12.8 pounds, around half the normal weight for his age. War has raged for three years in Yemen, and much of the population is starving.

BY MAGGIE MICHAEL Associated Press

MOCHA, YEMEN • The baby twitches his legs in pain in the video. He’s crying but is so dehydrated that his eyes can’t produce tears. His inflated belly is as taut as a balloon. It is easy to count the 12 rows of protruding ribs on his rapidly palpitating chest. The video, filmed by a doctor, shows 8-monthold Fadl sufering not from disease, but from starvation. Three years into a civil war, Yemen’s population is starving and could soon start to see widespread death from famine. Houthi rebels hold the country’s north, and a Saudi-led coalition, backed by the United States, has sought to bomb the rebels into submission with a relentless air campaign in support of the Yemeni government. Some 400,000 children are fighting for their lives in a dire state of hunger, severe acute malnutrition — the stage of swollen bellies and twiglike arms that are signs the body is eating away at itself for lack of nutrients and protein. In Yemen, around 2.9 million women and children are acutely malnourished, a stage of starvation just short of severe.

WAR ARRIVES Fadl’s mother, Fatma Halabi, recalled the life before the war in the western district of Mowza, near Yemen’s Red Sea coast. In those days, the family had fish and vegetables often. Her husband, a woodcutter, could make the equivalent of $4 a day. Mowza was in the hands of Houthi rebels for most of the war. Last year, government forces descended on the area to drive the rebels out. The fighting and airstrikes sent people fleeing, some of them scattering across the Great Valley. Separated from her husband, Halabi led her four children and two goats across the Great Valley, the arid plain spilling down from the mountains toward the city of Mocha on the Red Sea. These desolate stretches are historically a site of death. More than 400 years ago, a Muslim ruler forcibly sent almost the entire Jewish population of Yemen here for refusing to convert. Chroniclers say two-thirds of them died in the heat and deprivation. Halabi and the children hid in thorn bushes to avoid artillery and airstrikes along the shifting front line. One day in April last year, she went into labor and, alone, gave birth to Fadl under a tree. Eventually, she and her husband reunited and settled in an abandoned hut in the valley. Speaking from inside her

makeshift home in February, Halabi sat with a rope cinched around her emaciated waist, even as her blue robe kept sliding off her bony shoulder. She spoke in short, exhausted sentences. When asked what she had eaten that day, she said, “Bor,” the local Arabic word for flour. “We stay patient,” she said. “We have to feed the children.” When she gets hungry, she lies down and tries to sleep. Often she and her husband eat one meal in the morning, and nothing again until the next day. Unable to breastfeed Fadl, she gave him goat or camel milk, which lack the

nutrients of breast milk or formula. The newborn kept getting fever and diarrhea, so she borrowed money to take him to the hospital in Mocha.

AID IS LIMITED The hospital has seen 600 malnutrition cases within 10 months, but is so short on supplies it doesn’t even have pain relievers for headaches, said one doctor, Abdel-Rehim Ahmed. It has no therapeutic feeding center. None of its doctors have been trained in treating malnutrition. And Mocha is swelling with 40,000 displaced people. Left untreated, pro-

Giuliani defends Trump payment as ‘perfectly legal’ GIULIANI • FROM A1

January 2005 • Trump marries his current wife, Melania. March 2006 • The couple’s son, Barron, is born. July 2006 • According to Daniels, she and Trump began an “intimate relationship” and it continued “well into the year 2007.” 2011 • Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Cliford, says a man warned her to keep quiet about any encounters with Trump. Daniels said she and her daughter were approached in a Las Vegas parking lot by a man who said something along the lines of: “Oh, it’s a beautiful little girl, would be a shame if something happened to her mom. Forget about this story, leave Mr. Trump alone.” Days before the November 2016 election • Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, pays Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence. Separately, the Wall Street Journal publishes a story stating that the National Enquirer, run by David Pecker, a Trump supporter, had paid $150,000 to silence former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal about a sexual relationship she allegedly had with Trump a decade ago. The story also mentions Daniels and says she had been in talks with ABC News to tell her story but cut of negotiations with the network. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks says it is “absolutely, unequivocally” untrue that Daniels and Trump had a relationship. June 16, 2017 • Trump’s personal financial disclosure form is certified, with no listed debt to Cohen. Jan. 12 • The Wall Street Journal reports that Cohen had arranged the payment to Cliford in October 2016 to keep her from publicly discussing the alleged sexual encounter. The White House issues a statement calling the Journal’s story “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.” Cohen says the Journal has perpetuated “a false narrative for over a year.” Feb. 13 • Cohen acknowledges he paid $130,000 out of his own pocket to Daniels, saying he was not reimbursed by the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign. He notably does not say whether the president personally reimbursed him. “The payment to Ms. Cliford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone,” he says in a statement. March 7 • Daniels files a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court seeking to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump has “made very well clear that none of these allegations are true.” March 25 • In a highly anticipated interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Daniels says she was threatened to keep silent. White House spokesman Raj Shah declines to say whether the president watched the interview but says Trump does not believe any of the claims she made. “The president strongly, clearly and has consistently denied these underlying claims, and the only person who’s been inconsistent is the one making the claims,” Shah says. April 5 • In his first public comments about Daniels, Trump denies to reporters aboard Air Force One that he had knowledge of Cohen’s payment. Asked whether he knew about it, Trump says flatly: “No.” Asked why Cohen made the payment, he says, “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen.” When asked where Cohen got the money, Trump says, “I don’t know.” April 9 • Federal agents in New York raid Cohen’s oice and a hotel room, seizing records on topics including the payment made to Daniels. Cohen is now facing a criminal investigation in New York. April 18 • Trump responds to Daniels releasing an artist’s sketch of a man she says threatened her. “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump tweets. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” April 26 • In a phone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump muddies his earlier comments that he didn’t know about the Cohen payments, saying Cohen represented him in the “crazy Stormy Daniels deal.” “From what I see he did absolutely nothing wrong,” Trump said. “There were no campaign funds going into this which would have been a problem.” May 2 • Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now representing Trump as one of his lawyers, tells Fox News host Sean Hannity that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 paid to Daniels. Giuliani says the money to repay Cohen had been “funneled ... through the law firm and the president repaid it.” Giuliani said the payment “is going to turn out to be perfectly legal. That money was not campaign money.” Asked if Trump knew about the arrangement, Giuliani said: “He didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know. But he did know about the general arrangement, that Michael would take care of things like this.” May 3 • On Twitter, Trump acknowledges he repaid Cohen after claiming previously he didn’t know about the payments. He said the money “had nothing to do with the campaign.” Trump said Cohen received a monthly retainer, which he used to pay Daniels to sign an agreement not to talk about her allegations and “stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an afair.” Sanders later told reporters that she had tried to give them “the very best information we had at the time.” She said she first learned that Trump had repaid Cohen while watching Giuliani’s interview.

Cohen for $130,000 that was given to Daniels to keep her quiet before the 2016 election about her allegations of an afair with Trump. Giuliani’s revelation, which seemed to contradict Trump’s past statements, came as the president’s newly configured outside legal team pursued his defense. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she first learned that Trump had repaid the hush money from Giuliani’s interview on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity.” Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, who had pre-taped an interview with Fox News earlier Wednesday, was summoned to return for a live interview. While Giuliani said the payment to Daniels was “going to turn out to be perfectly legal,” legal experts said the new information raised a number of questions, including whether the money represented repayment of an undisclosed loan or could be seen as reimbursement for a campaign expenditure. Either could be legally problematic. Giuliani insisted Trump didn’t know the specifics of Cohen’s arrangement with Daniels until recently, telling “Fox & Friends” on Thursday that the president didn’t know all the details until “maybe 10 days ago.” Giuliani told The New York Times that Trump had repaid Cohen $35,000 a month “out of his personal family account” after the campaign was over. He said Cohen received $460,000 or $470,000 in all for expenses related to Trump. But no debt to Cohen was listed on Trump’s personal financial disclosure form, which was certified on June 16. Asked if Trump had filed a fraudulent form, Sanders said: “I don’t know.” Giuliani said the payment was not a campaign finance violation, but also admitted that Daniels’ allegations could have afected the campaign, saying: “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton.” Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is seeking to be released from a

nondisclosure deal she signed in the days before the 2016 election to keep her from talking about a 2006 sexual encounter she said she had with Trump, who denies the affair. She has also filed defamation suits against Cohen and Trump. Speaking to reporters on Air Force One several weeks ago, Trump said he did not know about the payment or where it came from. In a phone interview with “Fox and Friends” last week, he appeared to muddy the waters, saying that Cohen represented him in the “crazy Stormy Daniels deal.” Sanders said Thursday that Trump “eventually learned” about the payment, but she did not ofer details. For all the controversy Giuliani stirred up, some Trump supporters said it was wise to get the payment out in the open. Said former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: “You know, there’s an old saying in the law, ‘Hang a lantern on your problems.’ … So the fact is that Rudy has to go out there now and clean it up. That’s what lawyers get hired to do.” Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, slammed Trump and Giuliani. “The admissions by Mr. Giuliani as to Mr. Trump’s conduct and the acts of Mr. Cohen are directly contrary to the lies previously told to the American people,” he said. “There will ultimately be severe consequences.” Trump is facing mounting legal threats from the Cohen-Daniels situation and the special counsel’s investigation of Russian meddling in the election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign. Cohen faces a criminal investigation in New York, and FBI agents raided his home and oice several weeks ago seeking records about the nondisclosure agreement. Giuliani, a former New York City mayor and U.S. attorney, joined Trump’s legal team last month. He told CNN on Thursday that the announcement of Trump’s repayment was a planned strategy. He was quickly backed up by Trump, who said on Twitter that he had repaid Cohen.

House chaplain will be Trump signs order expanding faith-based partnerships, grants able to remain in post Announcement comes at White House on National Day of Prayer

Reverend rescinds resignation, alleging anti-Catholic bias by aide to Paul Ryan

WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • President

Donald Trump announced Thursday in a Rose Garden ceremony an executive order he said would expand government grants to and partnerships with faith-based groups. A top faith adviser to Trump said the aim was reducing conversations about church-state barriers “without all of these arbitrary concerns as to what is appropriate.” Trump has expanded access to the White House by conservative Christians, evangelicals in particular, and also Catholics who feel alarmed by the growing legal tension between gay rights and conservative religious rights. It wasn’t clear if there were concrete changes that would come with the executive order, though Johnnie Moore, spokesman for the president’s evangelical advisory group — his only faith advisory group with regular access to him — said the initiative included an order to every department “to work on faith-based partnerships.” That, Moore said, “represents a widespread expansion of a program that has historically done very effective work and now can do even greater work.” Moore mentioned an emphasis on faith-based partnerships focusing on prison reform, education, mental health and “strengthening families.” Faithbased groups have always been in such partnerships, but federal law requires that the government not show preference for one faith nor put recipients in the position where they are proselytized to in order to receive care. The ceremony was held for the National Day of Prayer and featured prayers from various faith leaders, including Cissie Graham Lynch, the granddaughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham; Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Catholic archbishop of Washington; and Levi Shemtov, the longtime Washington leader for the Chabad Lubavitch

President Donald Trump, seen Thursday at the White House, has expanded access for conservative Christians, especially evangelicals.

WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • House Speaker

movement and also the rabbi where Jared and Ivanka Trump attend services in town. At the ceremony, the president said he was responsible for people saying “Merry Christmas” more and talking more openly about prayer. “Don’t you notice a big diference between two or three years ago and now? Now it’s straight up.” Melissa Rogers, who served as executive director of the White House Oice of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships under President Barack Obama, said in a statement that protecting religious freedom should be a key aim of the government. “At the event today, President Trump should retract and apologize for his call for ‘a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,’ ” she wrote in an email. Rabbi Jonah Pesner, who runs the policy outreach arm for the Reform Movement, the largest segment of American Judaism, said in an email that he had “grave concerns” about the new executive order and its ability to let faith groups play a key role in government programs while also protecting “the rights of all people, regardless of their faith. We have already seen eforts by this administration to undermine essential rules … thereby

threatening religious liberty.” Faith-based oices were considered major announcements under the past three presidents. However, Trump’s announcement came as a surprise to many. It was absent from the White House daily schedule, and some attendees said they were told only of the National Day of Prayer blessing. A similar version of the office was first created by President George W. Bush in 2001 with a mandate to partner with and serve as a resource to faith groups. The idea of the office was intended to put religious groups on equal footing with other nonprofit organizations when competing for federal funding, setting off a wave of criticism and questions about whether funding could breach a separation of church and state. Weeks into his presidency, Obama announced his version of the office at the National Prayer Breakfast, which kept Bush’s rules allowing faithbased groups to compete for grants and served as a liaison between religious leaders and the White House. Since Trump took oice, the director role of the faith-based oice has been vacant, although some agencies have named faith-based-oice appointees.

Paul Ryan, R-Wis., reversed course Thursday and agreed to keep the Rev. Patrick Conroy on as House chaplain after a showdown that included the priest alleging anti-Catholic bias by Ryan’s chief of staf. Conroy, who was forced to step down by Ryan last month, sent the speaker a letter rescinding his resignation and vowing to remain until the end of the year. Within hours Ryan had backed down, ending the possibility of what the speaker feared would be a “protracted fight” over what is supposed to be a unifying position in the partisan chamber. Ryan defended his original decision and continued to question whether Conroy was delivering sufficient “pastoral services” to the entire House. “I intend to sit down with Father Conroy early next week so that we can move forward for the good of the whole House,” Ryan said. The decision capped a highly unusual dispute between the Catholic speaker, who announced last month that he would retire, and a Jesuit priest who has spent seven years as spiritual adviser to 435 lawmakers and thousands of stafers. Just a week ago, Conroy’s ouster had threatened to spark a political and theological firestorm. Most lawmakers thought

Conroy’s resignation, announced in mid-April, was voluntary, but Ryan faced a bipartisan backlash, particularly among the more than 140 Catholics in the House, when word spread that he had forced the priest into retirement. Congress is away on a oneweek break, and some GOP advisers hoped the issue would die down. But then Conroy issued a two-page letter Thursday accusing Ryan’s chief of staf, Jonathan Burks, of anti-Catholic bias. Conroy spelled out his April 13 confrontation with Burks that set the stage for his resignation. The priest asked why he was being forced out. “Maybe it’s time that we had a chaplain that wasn’t a Catholic,” Burks said, according to Conroy’s account. Conroy says Burks also brought up a prayer the priest delivered in November. During the tax-cut debate, Conroy delivered a prayer that some took as siding with Democrats. “May their efforts these days guarantee that there are not winners and losers under new tax laws, but benefits balanced and shared by all,” Conroy said. In a statement Thursday, Burks took issue with Conroy’s version of events. “I strongly disagree with Father Conroy’s recollection of our conversation. I am disappointed by the misunderstanding, but wish him the best as he continues to serve the House,” Burks said.

The Army is seeking public input on a Proposed Plan to address contamination at the St. Louis Ordnance Plant, former Hanley Area in St. Louis, Missouri. The site lies approx imately three miles west of the Mississippi River and 0.25 mile south of the intersection of I -70 and Goodfellow Boulevard. Between 1941 and 1979, historic waste handling, generation, and disposal practices resulted in soil and groundwater contamination consisting of primarily metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In 2012, the Army completed site cleanup activities to eliminate unacceptable human health risks from construction worker exposure to contaminated soil and groundwater. A potential future unacceptable risk to human health from vapor intrusion (VI) of residual VOCs in soil and groundwater remains and is the basis of the Proposed Plan. The former Hanley Area is a Department of Defense property and the Army manages environmental cleanup activities at the site.

Iran’s foreign minister says no renegotiating nuclear deal

EU ofers youth a ticket to ride to boost travel around Europe

His message comes ahead of deadline set by Trump to decide on U.S. withdrawal from accord

Taxpayers will foot the bill for up to 30,000 18-year-olds to explore countries by train

BY NASSER KARIMI AND JON GAMBRELL associated Press

TEHRAN, IRAN • Iran’s foreign min-

ister took to YouTube on Thursday to criticize President Donald Trump’s threat to withdraw from the nuclear deal, saying Iran would not “renegotiate or add onto” the atomic accord. Mohammad Javad Zarif’s video, which was also posted to Twitter, appeared to be taking his message to the masses after earlier speaking to news outlets across the United States to defend the deal. It comes as Trump has signaled he will withdraw from the agreement by May 12 if it is not renegotiated and changed. Those changes have included proposals to limit Iran’s ballistic missile program, which Tehran says it has as a defensive deterrent. The five-minute video shows Zarif behind his desk, delivering his message on the deal. He ofers background first about the deal before laying into Trump and criticizing Europe for ofering “the United States more concessions from our pocket.” “On 11 occasions since, the U.N. nuclear watchdog has confirmed that Iran has implemented all of its obligations,” Zarif, who studied in the U.S., says in American-accented English. “In contrast, the U.S. has consistently violated the agreement, especially by bullying others from doing business with Iran.” Zarif adds: “Let me make it absolutely clear once and for all: We will neither outsource our security nor will we renegotiate or add onto a deal we have already implemented in good faith.” There was no immediate response from Washington. The 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers saw Tehran limit its enrichment of uranium and number of spinning centrifuges, as well as hand over its stockpile of uranium and reconfigure a heavy-water reactor so it couldn’t produce plutonium. In exchange, Iran regained access to the global banking system and could sell its oil again on the world market.

BRUSSELS • The European Union is convinced

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, shown April 24 in New York, said on a YouTube video posted Thursday that Iran would not renegotiate the nuclear deal reached in 2015. President Donald Trump has threatened to withdraw from the pact.

Airplane manufacturers, carmakers and others have rushed into Iran after the accord. However, some Western firms have grown increasingly reluctant to enter the market, in part over Trump’s constant criticism on the campaign trail and from the White House on the deal. While directly criticizing the U.S. and Europe, Zarif did appear to leave some wiggle room for possible negotiations, however. “It is Iran, and not the West, that has serious grievances and much to demand,” Zarif says. That comes as Iran’s hard-line Revolutionary Guard continues to detain a number of dual nationals, Western citizens and others. Analysts and family members of dual nationals and others detained in Iran say hard-liners in the Islamic Republic’s security agencies use the prisoners as bargaining chips in negotiations with the West. A U.N. panel in September described “an emerging pattern involving the arbitrary deprivation of liberty of dual nationals” in Iran, which Tehran denied.

The video comes amid intense lobbying on Trump from all sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week gave an English-language presentation on what he called a “half ton” of Iranian nuclear documents illicitly seized by Israeli intelligence. Netanyahu said the documents provided evidence that Iran attempted to develop a nuclear bomb in the 2000s. The United Nations’ atomic watchdog previously reported such efforts and said it had “no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009.” Zarif himself dismissed Netanyahu’s presentation as “a rehash of old allegations” and called the prime minister “the boy who can’t stop crying wolf.” In the video, Zarif also appears to troll Trump by making a real-estate analogy to the former developer. “When you buy a house and move your family in it or demolish it to build a skyscraper, you cannot come back two years later and renegotiate the price,” he says.

it has found a new way for young people to fall in love with neighboring countries — free train rides. The EU kicked off the DiscoverEU project Thursday to send up to 30,000 18-year-olds chugging across the continent this year, giving them free rail tickets to broaden their horizons. All for a taxpayers’ cost of 12 million euros ($14 million). If all goes well, and the next seven-year EU budget plans are approved, that could turn into a budget of 100 million euros ($120 million) a year, giving some 200,000 teenagers the right to Europe-wide Interrail travel. “It starts this year, and this is just the beginning,” EU lawmaker Manfred Weber said. “It will show the European people that the European Union is much more than a law-making machine.” For the past half-century, cut-rate Interrail tickets have been a coming-of-age ritual for many European youngsters. Cross the continent, sleep on a beach, see the great sights, taste the good life and make new friends. Weber said it would help young Europeans “discover all the richness of their diferences.” This year, 18-year-olds will be able to apply for a free ticket to travel in up to four EU countries for a month. There will be a quota system and a quiz on EU heritage, culture and current afairs to pick the first 15,000 ticket recipients in June. A second selection is due this fall. Beyond travel, those selected will have to pay everything themselves. The prospect of seeing the program expanded in the EU’s next budget cycle, starting in 2020, is being warmly welcomed by some who have campaigned for the idea. Vincent-Immanuel Herr and Martin Speer, who launched the #FreeInterrail campaign, said the proposals of the EU executive were “brave and forward-looking.” “An idea that began over the dinner table in 2014 is now going to become a tangible EU program that will influence the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people in a positive way,” they said in an email to the AP.

Too many painkillers Report is a good irst step toward preventing opioid abuse and addiction.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS ASSOCIATED PRESS

An arrangement of opioid oxycodone-acetaminophen pills, known as Percocet.

Circuit attorney seems too busy going after governor

S

I had to read the Law & Order article twice and still was confused (“Officers injured trying to break up fight,” May 1). What in the world is the St. Louis circuit attorney’s office doing with our tax money? Based on the article and assuming it to be factual, I figured that it would state that all suspects were incarcerated, being held on $25,000 bond. Let me get the story straight. Three officers injured, suspects resist arrest, another suspect flourished a gun and a pit bull was released to attack the officers, and no warrants were issued. I guess the folks in that office are too busy spending their time and taxpayers’ money trying to convict a Republican governor. Maybe, if they would utilize professional investigators, such as the St. Louis Police Department, instead of hiring out-of-town rent-a-cops, much more could be accomplished and we would all feel much safer. I can’t believe anything that comes from St. Louis officials. Jim Kohnen • Mehlville

t. Louis County’s prescription drug monitoring program marked its one-year anniversary with data showing that opioids are still vastly overprescribed and that opioid overdose deaths in the region reached a record high last year. The report said that enough painkillers are prescribed in the county for every adult and child to get three pills a month. Although the statistics are grim, there is at least a record of what is prescribed, how often, by whom and for whom. Before the program, there was an information void that prevented policymakers from identifying a major source of the addiction epidemic. The program also issued alerts for nearly 14,000 instances involving someone filling three different prescriptions at three different pharmacies over six months, indicating possible doctor-shopping or drug abuse. Pharmacists say that without such alerts, patients with chronic pain conditions may not realize they are at risk for overdose or on a track to becoming addicted. Doctors and pharmacists are also able to check the database to look up a patient’s prescription history, and doctors can see whether fraudulent prescriptions have been issued in their names. Still, the St. Louis area racked up between 700 and 800 opioid overdose deaths last year. Authorities noted that most were from illegal substances such as heroin laced with highly lethal fentanyl, not from prescription painkillers. The results show that keeping a tight check on prescription painkillers doesn’t cure drug addiction, but it does help track and document opioid prescription abuse.

Nationwide, opioid painkiller prescriptions fell about 9 percent between 2016 and 2017, the largest decrease in decades. But doctors and patients have opposed sweeping legal or regulatory changes that would require limiting dosages and durations of painkillers for acute cases. Absent federal action, governors and state legislatures are imposing changes. At least 23 states have enacted laws restricting prescriptions to a supply ranging from three to 14 days. The St. Louis County report showed that opioids are prescribed regionally for an average of 16 days. After years of legislative inaction on a statewide monitoring program, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens last July signed an executive order forming one. State officials said they began receiving data in December on dispensing records of controlled substances by doctors and pharmacists. The data led authorities to open investigations. The program, based on prescribing information from Express Scripts, has not yet released findings. No Missouri doctors were disciplined last year for overprescribing opioids, the Post-Dispatch’s Blythe Bernhard reported. Missouri should follow the example of Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who signed a law in March limiting most painkiller prescriptions to three days. Missouri lawmakers have been slow to stop the scourge of painkiller abuse that leads to drug addiction. Nearly 60 Missouri cities and counties have joined St. Louis County’s program, but they need state support to impose corrective action.

Liar’s poker ‘helma and Louise’ are at it again. A political clif awaits Trump and Greitens.

W

ithin hours Wednesday, Gov. Eric Greitens and President Donald Trump were exposed for having lied about important legal issues that could well determine their fates in office. There’s a startling similarity between these two politicians, both of whom won election by promising to shake up a corrupt political system, only to find themselves immersed in serious legal problems of their own making. The “Thelma and Louise” analogy we invoked on Jan. 14 seems more fitting than ever because these two, like the characters in the 1991 movie, have engaged in patterns of appalling recklessness and seem deliberately to be gunning toward a political cliff. For Greitens, impeachment proceedings by the state House are almost inevitable now that the Legislature has voted to meet in special session. The president is likely to face a similar fate if an expected anti-Trump backlash puts Democrats in control of Congress after November elections. In both cases, smart politicians undermined themselves with bone-headed decisions rooted in disregard for campaign laws coupled with a ruinous extramarital lust for women. Both insist Democrats are behind their current legal problems, which both have labeled as “witch hunts.” In Jefferson City, a report Wednesday by the GOP-dominated House Special Investigation Committee on Oversight included a detailed timeline linking Greitens to a donors list taken without permission from a charity Greitens founded. The list was used by Greitens’

gubernatorial campaign to solicit major financial support. The Missouri Ethics Commission investigated and obtained a written acknowledgment from Greitens that his campaign had violated campaign finance law. But the timeline makes clear that Greitens lied by underplaying what and when he knew about the donor-list transfer. It was not the act of a low-level campaign staffer, as Greitens previously asserted; it was Greitens himself who made it happen. In Washington, Rudolph Giuliani, the former New York mayor and new member of Trump’s legal team, told Fox News on Wednesday that Trump did, in fact, reimburse the funds for a hush-money payment to a former porn star days before the 2016 presidential election. Trump had previously denied any connection to the $130,000 payment made by his then-attorney, Michael Cohen, to porn star Stormy Daniels to stop her from talking about an affair they had in 2006. On Thursday, Trump acknowledged the payment, effectively admitting that he had previously lied. The legal strategy is to link the payment to Trump’s personal finances and thereby separate it from his campaign’s finances, where an undeclared donation could constitute a felony violation of federal campaign law. How can elected leaders be trusted to uphold the Constitution if they lie and skirt the law for personal advancement? As much as GOP loyalists might want to stand behind Trump and Greitens, it’s time to put American democracy first instead of allowing these two to continue making a mockery of it.

Might be better uses for extra tax money than the zoo The proposed one-eighth of 1 percent sales tax to fund the St. Louis Zoo doesn’t seem like a lot of money (“Voters to decide on sales tax to support zoo,” May 2). Even the less- well-off probably would not be severely affected should this tax be adopted. The bigger question is one of priorities. While the zoo is a wonderful asset to the community, there may be more worthy candidates for the $25 million that this tax would raise; rising crime, inadequate schools and crumbling infrastructure are just a few. Given the fact that at the end of fiscal year 2017 the zoo had almost $115 million in net capital assets, one may wonder why it needs to double the amount of money it already receives from the taxpayer.

or speeding, whether on highways or streets within the cities. Way too many people no longer worry about doing these things since the cameras are turned off, or, if they are on, they can no longer be used to ticket drivers. What is hard to understand about this? If you don’t want police to arrest you or cities to make money off you for breaking the law — whether it’s speeding or other crimes and the fines, court costs, etc. that go with them — don’t break the law in their jurisdiction. It’s not rocket science. As I’ve said many times, everyone needs to grow up and accept responsibility when they do something wrong and learn from it. Don’t continue to make the same mistakes and blame the cities and police for doing their job and ticketing or arresting you for breaking the law in their jurisdiction. Do cities make money off these things? Yes, they do, because people apparently can’t understand how to stop the cities from getting their money. Stop breaking the law in their jurisdiction. Could there be a badly run police department out there that encourages their officers to break the law to bring in the money? Yes, there could be, and I would be the first to want everyone involved sent to the same jail other criminals are sent to, but most police officers are good men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our cities, residents and visitors, not to make money. The cities make money because people continue to speed and break other laws. Diane Jennings • St. Ann

Remembering brave soldiers in Vietnam War As we enter May, I reflect on what I consider the hardest time of my life. It is also a time in which I was one of the luckiest people on earth. The list I am providing is of those from Alpha Company 1st Battalion, 46th Infantry who didn’t survive this period in the Vietnam War: May 12, 1969: William Lutz, James Sowers, Michael Tucker. May 13, 1969: Michael Blea, James Dye, Ronald Marrs. May 14, 1969: Tyree Cardwell, William Hale, Robert Laubacher, Donald Priest Jr., Daniel Rosen. I was in a platoon with the May 14 group as a radiotelephone operator. I also have to mention the person who I believe saved the lives of those who made it: Capt. Kern Dunagan, who received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his action during this time. I am writing this because these men deserve not to be forgotten. I know that is said a lot, but I feel that I owe this to them. James Sargent • Lake Sherwood

Don’t blame cities, police for doing their job Regarding the editorial “Corral the cash cows” (April 30): Every time I’m out running errands, I wish the law would go back to cities and police officers not being blamed for costing people money they can’t afford by writing tickets, or arresting people for breaking the law in their jurisdiction. I often see people running red lights

Migrants throw a surprise “thank you” party Wednesday for Leo Olsen (center), a volunteer activist who has helped to organize the caravan to Tijuana, Mexico.

Immigrants in caravan are leeing for their lives The Central Intelligence Agency used paramilitary forces to prop up rightwing dictatorships in the Central American “banana republics” during the Reagan administration. Our taxpayers financed this travesty. In our name, horrific things were done to the citizens who opposed the regimes there. The societies never recovered. Drug gangs, corrupt politicians and crooked cops are now in charge, and the citizens, especially children, are fleeing for their lives. Nothing has been able to challenge the current broken power structure. The people who have walked from there and then onward through Mexico are now stranded at our southern border. The Trump administration has demonized them. The vast majority can easily be vetted and should be allowed to enter our “home of the brave,” just like the vast majority of our ancestors.

he beneits of merit-based immigration Evaluate applicants on education, job skills, language ability and other factors. BY ANDREW G. KADAR

Vastly more people want to immigrate to the United States than we can possibly absorb. A recent worldwide Gallup poll found 147 million adults with that desire. If they all moved here, our nation’s population would instantly grow by nearly 50 percent, with most of the new arrivals having little familiarity with American culture and speaking minimal to no English. Many would be poorly educated and unprepared for jobs in an advanced economy. If each of these adults brought along just one child, we would nearly double our population overnight — and that’s before we consider all their brothers, sisters, parents, in-laws and other relatives who might want to follow. Who among the massive multitude ready to immigrate here

should get that privilege? What criteria should determine whom to admit? And significantly, should we continue to reward illegal entrants, those here now and ones yet to arrive? Do people who manage to cross into this country and break our laws get preference over those who apply at our embassies or consulates and wait their turn according to our laws? Immigration serves two legitimate and worthy goals: helping the immigrant and helping our country. Faced with overwhelming numbers, it makes sense to ask not just what our country can do for the immigrant but what the immigrant can do for our country. That’s exactly what a meritbased immigration policy is designed to accomplish. It’s the policy in Canada and just about every other nation. Applicants are evaluated on their education, job skills, language ability and

other factors that can predict their potential contribution to the nation. By doing the same, the United States can help just as many people humanely, while also helping our own country. The very first criteria for admission should be a desire to become American — to integrate into American society by learning our culture and language. That should also apply to those already here, including the “Dreamers.” Their supporters claim that they’re already American in everything but legal status. Why not ask them to prove it by passing a test on English language proficiency and one on U.S. history and government similar to the exam taken by applicants for citizenship? Americanized “Dreamers” should have no problem with that. Indeed, they should welcome the opportunity to demonstrate that they belong. To qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, immigrants had to have entered the U.S. before their 16th

birthday. The executive order makes no requirement that they be fluent in the English language or know anything about American history and culture. The application form even has a space for the name of the translator used to fill it out. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, unlike the poster children who became honor students, “perhaps 24 percent of the DACA-eligible population fall into the functionally illiterate category and another 46 percent have only ‘basic’ English ability.” Anyone who came here as a child and still needs a translator more than 10 years later cannot be trying very hard to become Americanized. He or she is also less prepared to hold a good job and more likely to become an economic burden on society. Does someone like that deserve to be put ahead of immigrants who wait their turn to enter legally? DACA may have been initiated with good intentions, but it has the deleterious consequence of telling legal immigrants, who

frequently wait years for permission to enter our country, that they are foolish to do so. It also tells them that the U.S. has a repeating history of retroactively rewarding those who cut in line. The very least we can expect of “Dreamers” receiving the gift of the legal right to live in the United States without ever having waited for admission is a demonstration of loyalty by learning our language, history and culture. That should have been an integral requirement in the DACA executive order from the start. It should be part of any new policy going forward. A merit-based immigration program that rewards those most prepared to blend into American society, whether they’re already here or not, will produce the greatest overall benefit to both immigrants and the United States.

PAWLEY’S ISLAND, S.C. • When

I moved to Washington several years ago, a D.C. veteran whispered a warning that she had learned from her father: New York is tough, but Washington is mean. Truer words, my friend, truer words. Yet, apparently, even Washington can be offended by too much meanness. By now you’ve heard about the disastrous White House Correspondents’ Association dinner last Saturday, where comedian Michelle Wolf tortured her audience with lousy jokes in a tin-tongued voice that made one yearn for the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard. (Not to be mean or anything, but it’s permissible to critique a public performer’s voice just as one would a musician’s violin.) What offended many who’ve spoken up the past few days was Wolf’s mean-spiritedness. Oh, for goodness sake, girls, what were you expecting? As Wolf herself told the audience, “You should have done more research.” But Wolf’s sin wasn’t being mean; it was being not-funny. Specifically, the girls’ club was upset that Wolf referred to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ makeup, which, they said, was crossing a line. What line? The eyeliner line? The only line she crossed is the one between good comedy and bad. But you be the judge. Herewith, the “joke” in question:

“I actually really like Sarah,” Wolf said. “I think she’s very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.” I’m sorry, what? Did she misread her notes? “Smoky eye” presumably refers to Sanders’ eye shadow, but the comment doesn’t even make sense. What is lies? Where is funny? Wolf went on as all eyes shifted to Sanders, who, in addition to looking stunning in a royal blue dress and upswept hair, was a portrait of calm and dignity. (Yes! You can comment on a woman’s appearance when she has spent hours and a few paychecks to look as gorgeous as possible for a social occasion. We women don’t do that hoping to be ignored.) Kellyanne Conway, too, was a portrait of serenity and class when Wolf turned her attention to the presidential adviser. Resplendent in white, Conway was Queen of the Elves as Wolf told the audience she hoped a tree would fall on Conway — not to harm her, she quickly corrected the implication, but just to get her “stuck.” Whoa, now, there’s a kneeslapper. Again, did she misread the joke? Some years are fun, some not so much. Chalk up the most recent to the latter category. When the late author Christopher Hitchens once (erroneously) wrote that women aren’t funny, he must have had Wolf in mind. Maybe she can be funny; she just wasn’t. She was tedious and boring. No, I wasn’t there. Nor did I watch it on television. When a

full moon is rising pinkly over the Atlantic, it’s possible to forget why one would ever subject herself to the annual contest of relevance. But having read about it and watched the clips, I’m more convinced than ever that the dinner has jumped itself. (Forget the shark — he’s doing stand-up in a comedy club at Myrtle Beach.) The correspondents’ dinner comedy act, which is customarily followed by the president, is supposed to be a roast of the current administration, not a human sacrifice. Rather than earn laughter with her keen wit and clever take, Wolf managed to make Sanders and Conway, the Trump administration’s top purveyors of “alternative facts,” into the most likable people in the room. Meanwhile, Trump was in Washington, Mich., basking in the cheers of his supporters rather than submitting to the jeers of his harshest critics. The fact is, the correspondents’ dinner, which is supposed to be about recognizing journalists for achievement and rewarding worthy students with scholarships, has become too much of something else. We all like to dress up and put our roles to rest for a few hours and be entertained. But at a time when the Fourth Estate suffers a deficit of public trust and respect, we would do well to demonstrate the behavior we insist upon from others. Washington insiders say that the only thing worse than going to the correspondents’ dinner is not going. I’m not so sure about that.

How can we reduce the number of abortions in the United States? One way is to make sure that women are confident they’ll have medical coverage throughout their pregnancies and after. And how can we encourage people to work? By making work pay, which is why Republicans and Democrats have supported the Earned Income Tax Credit, known as the EITC, which tops off the pay of low-income employees. Similarly, food stamps help low-income working families give their children the nutrition they need. These policies, in other words, are pro-life, pro-work and pro-family. But the Trump administration is pondering a regulation that people in all these camps should find appalling. Naturally, given President Donald Trump’s intense hostility toward the foreign-born, this bureaucratic maneuver is directed against immigrants — and not, mind you, those who came to the U.S. illegally. It hits immigrants who are in full compliance with our statutes. What the Trumpians have in mind is a radical change in the interpretation of who is defined as a “public charge” in our immigration law. An 1882 act excluded any immigrant “unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge.” In 1891, Congress called for deporting “any alien who becomes a public charge within one year after his arrival in the United States from causes existing prior to his landing therein.” Until now, administrations of both parties read the language in ways that ought to seem reasonable to all sides of the immigration debate. Robert Greenstein, president of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, explained in a paper released on Tuesday that the factors used in determining whether an immigrant is a “public charge” include “whether the individual is dependent for over half of his or her income on cash assistance (i.e., on aid under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, the Supplemental Security Income program for the aged and disabled poor, or state or local General Assistance) or is receiving longterm care through Medicaid.” The emphasis is Greenstein’s. But as his paper explained, the proposal under consideration would “jeopardize the immigration status of substantial numbers of legal immigrants” by vastly expanding the list of benefits that could make them “public charges.” It would

now include the EITC, the low-income component of the Child Tax Credit, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, health insurance subsidies, the Women, Infants and Children program, or food stamps. Note that, according to the Urban Institute, 91 percent of the children of immigrants are U.S. citizens. But immigrant parents might be reluctant to access benefits they’re entitled to because doing so could put their own status here in danger. In fact, the mere leaking of these potential revisions has already had this chilling effect. As Emily Baumgaertner reported in The New York Times in March: “Immigrants hoping for permanent residence are dropping out of public nutrition programs even before prominent elements of the Trump administration’s proposed policy changes are enacted, fearful that participating could threaten their citizenship eligibility or put them at risk for deportation.” Oh, and by the way, the only tax breaks the rule targets are those that send checks to our poorest immigrant families. “It’s about so much more than immigration,” said Ashley Feasley, director of migration policy for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.“What this could do to families affects their health and well-being and it really should be seen as a life issue.” Here is my plea to pro-life Republicans: Politics aside, you oppose abortion because you are inspired by your moral commitments. Can you please call your White House friends — do it quietly if that’s easier — and tell them that going down this path would be an embarrassment to the cause you uphold? Withdrawing support for mothers could create new incentives for abortion. And to the many of you who are vocal Christians, do you want to tell the citizenchildren of immigrants that political posturing to appease nativist sentiments in your party is more important than their getting decent meals or health care? There is nothing in scripture that tells us: Blessed are the meanspirited. One could extend this conversation to other groups and issues. But the draft of this particular rule is so outlandishly and unjustly punitive toward newcomers trying to do right — by their families and our laws — that it ought to draw us away, at least momentarily, from our usual political battle stations. Unless, of course, political posturing is the only thing that matters now. In which case: God have mercy on us. E.J. Dionne ejdionne@washpost.com Copyright The Washington Post

NRA agenda stalls amid gun-control momentum ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS • A year ago, the nation’s most

powerful gun lobby was riding high: The millions the National Rifle Association had spent to help elect Donald Trump, one of the nation’s most gun-friendly presidents, had paid off, and members were hopeful that more firearms restrictions would soon be eased. But in the last 12 months, Americans have witnessed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, a gut-wrenching attack at a Florida high school and bitterly divided politics in Washington. Those factors gave momentum to guncontrol advocates and stalled the NRA’s agenda, despite firm GOP control of Congress and the White House. Then corporate America began turning its back on the group, dropping discount programs or refusing to sell gun industry products. When the NRA holds its annual meeting this weekend in Dallas, the gathering will provide a window into the organization’s message and strategy ahead of this year’s midterm elections. The convention will also have a return guest: Trump, making his fourth consecutive visit to the meeting. For the NRA, the meeting is a chance to unite around the idea that members must

Group to host its annual meeting, seeking to mount a campaign against restrictions push back against a liberal agenda that seeks to trample their Second Amendment rights. Thousands in attendance will listen to political speeches, check out the latest firearms, attend gun-training courses and socialize. The audience consists mostly of hardcore gun-rights supporters. “They’re taking a very hard line in the sand of our Constitution” that has to be protected “at all costs,” said Julianna Crowder, a firearms instructor and founder of A Girl and Gun Women’s Shooting League in Austin, Texas. Gun-control groups have been spurred on by a younger generation impatient with inaction. Teenagers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida began pushing for gun restrictions almost immediately after a former student killed 17 people at the school in February. The survivors have led a series of rallies and marches, most notably an event in Washington in March that was the anchor for a national day of protest. The students have pressed to raise the

legal age to purchase a rifle, curb access to AR-style firearms and adopt other gun restrictions. Though there’s been no movement at the federal level, several states have enacted tougher gun laws. The NRA’s top priorities — allowing gun owners with a state-issued concealedcarry permit to carry a handgun in any state and easing restrictions on the sales of suppressors — remain unfulfilled. But at the same time, the group has not lost any ground in Congress. Lawmakers have struggled to make even minor adjustments to background check systems. Still, the leading manufacturer of bump stocks, which allow a semi-automatic long gun to mimic the firepower of a fully automatic weapon, is going out of business. Several states — including two historically gun-friendly states, Florida and Vermont — have enacted “red flag” laws that make it easier to confiscate firearms from someone considered to be a danger to themselves or others. Gun-control measures typically take

years to become law. The Gun Control Act of 1968 was proposed after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963 but wasn’t enacted until five years later, just months after Sen. Robert Kennedy and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were gunned down. The Brady Act, which created the national background check system and imposed a five-day waiting period, was enacted in 1993, more than a decade after White House press secretary Jim Brady was shot during an assassination attempt on then-President Ronald Reagan. Gun-control advocates consider the midterm elections the first big test for their reinvigorated movement. “I think you’re going to see gun safety played out very prominently in many, many races, particularly in suburban swing districts,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “That will give you a very, very good sign of how much staying power and how much traction there is.” But don’t count out the NRA and its estimated 5 million members. Just this past March, the group posted its highest fundraising totals in more than a decade, and gun-rights supporters still have a hold on Congress and the White House.

Arizona teachers win 20 percent raise, end walkout BY ANITA SNOW AND TERRY TANG associated Press

PHOENIX • The Arizona governor signed a plan Thursday to give striking teachers a 20 percent pay raise, ending their sixday walkout after a dramatic all-night legislative session and sending more than a million public school students back to the classroom. Gov. Doug Ducey’s signature awarded teachers a 9 percent raise in the fall and 5 percent in each of the next two years. Those increases are in addition to a 1 percent raise granted last year. Teachers did not get everything they wanted, but they won substantial gains from reluctant lawmakers. “The educators have solved the education crisis! They’ve changed the course of Arizona,” Noah Karvelis of Arizona Educators United shouted to several thousand cheering teachers. “The change happens with us!” Hours after Ducey acted, strike organizers called for an end to the walkout. Most schools stayed closed Thursday, except for a handful that managed to reopen shortly after the pay raises passed. Some districts planned to reopen Friday, with others likely to resume classes next week. The Senate approved the raises just before dawn as hundreds of red-shirted teachers followed the proceedings from the lobby, many sitting on the cold stone floor. The night before, the teachers, who are

Teachers protest at the Arizona Capitol on Thursday in Phoenix as part of a walkout over pay and education funding. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill raising their pay.

among the lowest paid in the country, held a candlelight vigil in a courtyard outside the Capitol building. Wrapped in blankets or sleeping bags, they napped on the ground or in folding metal chairs, occasionally using cellphones to monitor an online video stream of the legislative debate in the chambers. Ducey said the teachers had earned a raise and praised the legislation as “a real win” for both teachers and students. The pay increases will cost about $300 million

for the coming year alone. Some teachers returned to the Capitol on Thursday as lawmakers debated the rest of the state’s $10.4 billion budget plan. Among them was Wes Oswald, a third-grade teacher from Tucson who made the two-hour drive for a sixth day. Oswald said the budget still does not address serious issues such as the need for higher per-pupil spending, raises for support staff and a smaller-student-tocounselor ratio.

Teachers must still fight for those problems to be addressed, Oswald said, adding that “the worst thing would be for this movement to dissolve.” Arizona Education Association President Joe Thomas said Thursday that educators now should focus on a campaign for a November ballot measure that would seek more education funding from an income tax increase on the wealthiest taxpayers. The state’s largest district in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, as well as districts in the suburbs of Scottsdale and Glendale, planned to reopen Friday. Officials from Tucson’s biggest school district said they will not be ready and were working to reopen 86 school sites on Monday. Education cuts over the past decade have sliced deeply into Arizona’s public schools. Teachers wanted a return to prerecession funding levels, regular raises, competitive pay for support staff and a pledge not to adopt tax cuts until per-pupil funding reaches the national average. Phoenix-area teacher Rebecca Wilson was among those who camped out in the Capitol overnight. “I’m glad it passed and we’ll get something because I’m a single mom of three kids, but it’s not enough,” she told Phoenix-area radio station KTAR. The package provides the state’s schools will a partial restoration of nearly $400 million in recession-era cuts, with a promise to restore the rest in five years. Other cuts remain in place.

Rail workers in France resume strike over beneits changes

A 22-year-old man ended a ight with another by fatally shooting him inside a Tennessee mall on Thursday, and then gave up his weapon and surrendered, saying he didn’t want any more trouble, police said. Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said the shooter put the gun on the counter of a ticket booth at the Opry Mills Mall, and then was ordered to the ground by a retired California police oicer who lives in Tennessee. The gunire prompted an outsized response. The mall was evacuated, police oicers responded in force, at least a half a dozen ambulances converged on the scene and authorities said the adjacent Grand Ole Opry House and convention center were put on lockdown for a time.

Investigators seek clues to cargo plane crash • Military investigators began the arduous task Thursday of answering why a C-130 Hercules cargo plane being lown into retirement by an experienced crew plunged onto a Georgia highway. Families and friends of the nine airmen, meanwhile, grieved and took note of the fact that Puerto Rico’s planes are the oldest in the National Guard inventory. There were no survivors when the huge plane dropped from the sky moments after taking of from Savannah, Ga., narrowly missing motorists and buildings as iery wreckage exploded over a wide area. A military oicer told reporters Thursday that investigators were on the scene, but he ofered no preliminary indings.

Sentence stands for outlaw Amish leader • The leader of a breakaway Amish group in Ohio convicted in hair- and beard-cutting attacks has lost an attempt to appeal his sentence in federal court. An attorney for Samuel Mullet Sr., 72, argued that Mullet’s previous lawyer made mistakes. U.S. District Judge Dan Polster disagreed Wednesday, concluding that those alleged errors weren’t prejudicial and that Mullet wasn’t denied a fair trial. Mullet is serving a sentence of about 11 years. Defense attorneys say the 2011 attacks stemmed from family disputes. Prosecutors say the motive was religious, as hair and beards have signiicance in the Amish faith.

Oklahoma governor considers bill allowing gun carry without a permit • Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is not saying whether she will sign legislation that would allow adults to carry handguns without a permit in spite of concern expressed by the deputy director of one of the state’s top law enforcement agencies Thursday that it could erode public safety. “The law really removes many of the protections that we’ve had,” Rick Adams, deputy director of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, said. The bill, similar to “constitutional carry” legislation adopted in other states, authorizes people 21 and older and military personnel who are at least 18 to legally carry a handgun, either openly or concealed, without a state-issued license or permit.

Rail workers set up street protests across France on Thursday as they resumed their rolling strike against President Emmanuel Macron’s plans to revamp the national railway company SNCF. Rail unions held a rally in Paris’ city center to “put pressure on the government” before a key meeting with Prime Minister Edouard Philippe next week. A group of writers, academics and artists who had launched a call to inancially support the strikers through an online crowdfunding platform handed over a check for 1 million euros ($1.2 million) to the railway unions during the Paris protest. The French government plans to revoke a special status that allows rail drivers to retain jobs and other beneits for life. It says the changes are needed to open the train network to competition in the coming years. Air France crews and ground staf, meanwhile, were on their 12th day of striking over pay.

N.C. students in custody over ‘hit lists’ • Authorities in North Carolina say two students are in custody after school administrators found multiple “hit lists” with names of students, a principal and community members, and deputies found a cache of weapons at one student’s home. The Macon County sherif’s oice told local news outlets the lists were created by two sophomores at Franklin High School and discovered Tuesday. Guns seized from a bedroom of one of the students included shotguns, revolvers, pistols and Airsoft pellet guns, the sherif’s oice said.

Most of Mexican town’s police force aren’t real police • Prosecutors and soldiers raided the headquarters of a local police force in central Mexico and found a strange thing: 113 of the 185 oicers weren’t police at all. The Public Safety Department in Puebla state said late Wednesday that the 113 were facing charges equivalent to impersonating an oicer and that the state government would take over policing duties in the town of San Martin Texmelucan. Puebla’s interior secretary Diodoro Carrasco said the town government had lost control and could no longer guarantee the safety of residents.

Superintendent charged with defecating on school ield • It was a disturbing discovery for students and faculty at Holmdel High School in New Jersey: human feces on or near the track and football ield, found on a regular basis before the school day began. The school’s administrators turned to law enforcement to launch an investigation. Thursday, they got an answer: the school district superintendent. Thomas Tramaglini, 42, has led the Kenilworth School District since August 2015. He was arrested at 5:50 a.m. Monday after he was seen defecating on the football ield. Tramaglini was charged with public urination or defecation, discarding and dumping of litter, and lewdness, according to a Holmdel police spokesman. He has been placed on leave and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. S.C. lawmakers consider ban on nearly all abortions • The South Carolina Senate debated Thursday whether to ban nearly all abortions in the state, a surprise move suggested by a Democrat who has long fought abortion restrictions. Sen. Brad Hutto told Republicans if the bill passed he was going to give them what they wanted — the most direct way to challenge the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturned state bans on abortions. No other state would have such a broad abortion ban. If the abortion bill passes the Senate, it would head to the more conservative House, but a leader of the chamber said he doesn’t think his colleagues will support the full ban — at least until the U.S. Supreme Court takes up another state’s case. Parent, children found dead in N.D. home • Three schoolchildren and a parent were found dead in a home in North Dakota on Thursday, school oicials and police said. Administrators at Lewis and Clark Elementary School in Grand Forks asked police to check on the home. The responding oicer saw what appeared to be a body inside the home and went in. No information has been released about how the four died and police are withholding the names of the dead until relatives have been notiied. Grand Forks Public Schools said

U.S. blames China for laser injuries to pilots • The United States has delivered a diplomatic démarche to China after alleging that the Chinese military injured two U.S. airmen by directing high-grade lasers at American aircraft in Djibouti. Pentagon chief spokeswoman Dana White said at a brieing Thursday that the United States has requested China investigate multiple incidents in recent weeks in which U.S. aircraft in Djibouti have been afected by unauthorized Chinese laser activity. The United States and China both have bases in Djibouti, an east African nation on the Gulf of Aden with fewer than a million people. White said two American airmen had sufered minor injuries as a result of the incidents but didn’t provide details. The Chinese Embassy in Washington didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Basque separatists oicially disbanding • Basque separatist group ETA publicly declared its dissolution Thursday, bringing an end to a campaign against Spain that saw more than 850 people killed over more than four decades of bombings and shootings. In an open letter to the Basque people, ETA said it has “completely dismantled all of its structures” and “will no longer express political positions, promote initiatives or interact with other stakeholders.” Its announcement was dismissed as propaganda by victims’ groups, while the Spanish government said it would continue to prosecute anyone with any links to any of the violence conducted during the ETA campaign, which blighted Spain’s transition to democracy from the late 1970s onward. Dust storm blamed for at least 125 deaths in India • Strong wind and rapid-ire lightning strikes from a violent dust storm demolished homes and toppled trees across India on Wednesday, killing at least 125 people and injuring more than 200 others — with more potentially deadly weather still to come, oicials said. At least 111 people were killed in the northern states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab, with many of them in Agra, the city that houses the Taj Mahal, according to BBC News and Agence France-Presse. About 14 people were killed in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, “which was hammered by more than 41,000 lightning strikes on Wednesday.” 2 killed in Russian ighter jet crash near Syria • A Russian ighter jet crashed Thursday of the coast of Syria, killing both pilots, according to Russia’s Defense Ministry, which said the plane did not come under ire and that the crash may have been caused by a bird getting sucked into one of the engines. State news agency Tass cited the ministry as saying the Su-30 crashed shortly after takeof from the Russian air base at Hemeimeem in Syria. Russia has been waging an air campaign in support of President Bashar Assad’s forces since 2015.

6 black rhinos coming to Chad • Six critically endangered black rhinos are being transported from South Africa to Chad, restoring the species to the country in Africa nearly half a century after it was wiped out there. African Parks, a Johannesburg-based conservation group, said Thursday that the rhinos would travel by air to Zakouma National Park, a reserve in Chad that it manages with the government. The group says the goal is to help the longterm survival of black rhinos and to restore biodiversity in Chad. It says there are fewer than 25,000 rhinos in the African wild. Sick gold miners in South Africa to receive millions • Attorneys for gold miners in South Africa who got lung diseases while working underground over many decades have reached a compensation agreement in their class-action lawsuit against mining companies. The Legal Resources Centre, a South African group, said Thursday that the deal provided for “meaningful” compensation from the companies, which have estimated the total settlement cost at $395 million. Thousands could receive compensation. Many people who are now sick worked in gold mines during white minority rule, when black miners received inadequate care and were vulnerable to silicosis and tuberculosis.

Can you hear it now? Proposed merger of T-Mobile and Sprint could boost technology, or just raise prices at Verizon and AT&T when it introduced unlimited data plans. The fear is that if the two mavericks merged, the combined firm would no longer be an “uncarrier,” as T-Mobile labels itself. “The new corporation is going to look more like Verizon and AT&T,” says Michael Kades, who directs markets and competition policy at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. “Prices will be higher and you’re not going to see as much competition on prices or terms of service.” The companies argue that a narrow focus on market share misses the point. They say the merger is all about the race to build a fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless network with faster speeds and better coverage than the

DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

T-Mobile and Sprint want you to believe their proposed merger is all about 5G mobile technology. Skeptics believe it’s about charging higher prices. Under traditional antitrust analysis, the deal looks like a prime candidate to be rejected. Ninety-eight percent of the mobile market belongs to four big companies, and the merger would reduce that to three. Regulators also don’t like to see maverick competitors go away, and both T-Mobile and Sprint have filled that role. T-Mobile, in particular, put a dent in profits

Landlords across the region are beginning to find new tenants to fill the hulking retail spaces vacated by Sports Authority nearly two years after the retailer liquidated and turned of the lights at all of its 450 stores across the country. When Sports Authority closed, it left behind approximately 350,000 square feet of empty store space in the St. Louis area – storefronts that remained dark for more than a year. That’s starting to change. Of the nine Sports Authority locations that were in the metro area, three have found new tenants — Dick’s Sporting Goods in Fairview Heights, Overstock Furniture and Mattress in Lake Saint Louis and Williams-Sonoma in Fenton. Four additional stores are close to being reclaimed by an Aldi in St. Peters, an AutoZone in Kirkwood, a Bed Bath & Beyond in Brentwood and an undisclosed tenant or tenants in Bridgeton.

Mallinckrodt continues to face scrutiny over its blockbuster drug Acthar, tightening the squeeze on the firm’s share price. On April 23, Mallinckrodt’s stock hit a 52-week low, $13.05 per share, following an analyst report that forecasted a “faster erosion” of Acthar sales amid resistance from payers and potential competition. Nearly a week later, the shares hit another 52week low, at $12.75 per share. Acthar is the company’s biggest revenue-generating drug, bringing in $1.2 billion in 2017. It’s an injectable drug that is used to treat a number of conditions, including multiple sclerosis and infantile spasms. Mallinckrodt’s U.S. headquarters is in Hazelwood. Acthar has been under scrutiny for its high price and was one of the most costly drugs in the Medicare program, according to a JAMA Internal Medicine study published in September. The study also raised questions about the eicacy of the drug. Leerink analysts said they expect revenue to drop by $193 million in 2020 based on answers from a survey of Acthar prescribers.

MEDICAL RESEARCH ROUNDUP Following are some of the medical research grants awarded to area scientists.

WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE The scientist • Dr. Richard Hotchkiss, professor of anesthesiology, developmental biology, medicine and surgery The grant • $2.3 million from the National Institutes of Health The project • Investigating new therapies to combat sepsis, a severe bloodstream borne infection, by enhancing patient immunity. Two clinical trials of immunotherapeutic drugs have been conducted in patients with sepsis and further trials are part of this project. The scientist • Dr. Kian Lim, assistant professor of medicine The grant • $1.7 million from the NIH The project • Members in the Lim Lab recently determined that pancreatic cancer cells defend themselves by hijacking the innate immune mechanism that normal cells commonly use to ight invading germs. Now they will develop novel strategies to deactivate this mechanism, with the goal of improving the therapeutic efect of chemotherapy and immunotherapy in pancreatic cancer. The scientist • Yu-Qing Cao, associate professor of anesthesiology The grant • $1.7 million from the NIH The project • Genetic studies have linked migraines to a protein involved in helping potassium low out of neurons. Researchers are now studying whether temporarily blocking this protein in mice causes the animals to show signs of having a headache. The scientist • Dr. Jefrey Milbrandt, the James S. McDonnell Professor of Genetics, head of the Department of Genetics, professor of medicine, neurology, pathology and immunology The grant • $1.6 million from the NIH The project • When neurons are injured, Schwann cells help repair them. Abnormal metabolism hinders Schwann cells and limits how well neurons regrow after injury. This work may potentially lead to the identiication of drugs to treat nerves injured by trauma or diabetes by enhancing the ability of Schwann cells to repair them. The scientist • Zhongsheng You, associate professor of cell biology and physiology, and medicine The grant • $1.3 million from the NIH The project • Cancer is caused by genetic mutations in DNA, and most cancerassociated mutations result from errors in DNA replication. Researchers want to understand how human cells normally protect DNA during replication to avoid mutations, and to understand how this DNA protection system can be exploited to improve current cancer therapies. The scientist • Jason Weber, professor of medicine, and cell biology and physiology The grant • $706,782 from the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity The project • Triple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive breast cancer subtype that disproportionately afects African-American women. Researchers have uncovered a novel pathway that produces tumors in the subtype, and now seek to test the eicacy of targeting components of this pathway in breast cancer cells and animal models with the hope of inding new ways to treat this type of cancer. The scientist • Michael D. Harris, assistant professor of physical therapy The grant • $554,225 grant from the NIH The project • Developmental dysplasia of the hip greatly increases risk for early hip osteoarthritis in adolescents and young adults. Researchers will investigate the relationships among bone, muscle and movement patterns in patients and how those relationships might contribute to pain and joint damage to develop treatments. The scientist • Samuel Achilefu, the Michel M. Ter-Pogossian professor of radiology, professor of biochemistry, molecular biophysics and medicine The grant • $544,282 grant from the NIH The project • The multispectral optoacoustic imaging system, which converts light into sound, may detect disease in deep tissue where conventional light imaging methods are not capable of furnishing diagnostic information. The information will provide insight into the physiological and molecular basis of human disease, allow drug optimization and monitor response to treatment. From staf reports

Late tech buying lessens day’s early losses for stocks Dow ends up slightly after being down by 393 points in morning BY MARLEY JAY associated Press

Losses for health care companies and banks left U.S. stocks lower Thursday, although a late push for technology and industrial companies helped the market avoid a steeper decline. After a weak finish the day before, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped as much as 393 points Thursday morning. Thanks to another gain in Boeing, it ended slightly higher. Companies, including insurer AIG, prescription drug distributor Cardinal Health, and music streaming service Spotify sufered big losses. Banks declined along with interest rates. Microsoft and Cisco Systems helped technology companies to some modest gains. But investors haven’t found much to get excited about the last couple of days as they worry about trade tension and the possibility that growth in company profits has peaked. “Investors went from being very optimistic to being more concerned about what could happen next,” said Kate Warne, investment strategist for Edward Jones. “People are getting far ahead of themselves.” The S&P 500 index slid 5.94 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,629.73. The Dow rose 5.17 points to 23,390.15. The Nasdaq composite lost 12.75 points, or 0.2 percent, to 7,088.15. The Russell 2000 index of smallercompany stocks fell 8.36 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,546.56. About three-fourths of S&P 500 companies had reported results as of Wednesday, according to CFRA Research, and their profits and revenues have consistently blown past Wall Street’s expectations. But the market isn’t acting like it: Since April 12, the day before big banks started reporting their results, the S&P 500 is down 1.3 percent. “Investors looked for any and all reasons to sell the results,” wrote Lindsey Bell, investment strategist for CFRA Research. In a note to clients, Bell said that Caterpillar “crushed all hopes” that stocks would rise following earnings. The construction equipment maker said it doesn’t expect to top its first-quarter profit for the rest of the year. Warne, of Edward Jones, said she still expects stocks to rise this year because of continued economic and profit growth. But she said it might take weeks or even months before that happens. Banks fell in tandem with interest rates as bond prices climbed. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.95 percent from 2.97 percent. Lower bond yields mean banks can’t make as much money from lending.

Some retail vacancies are too big or too small RETAIL • FROM B1

Joe Ciapciak, is a positive sign for St. Louis’ retail sector, which like everywhere else across the United States is struggling to keep up with changing consumer shopping habits. “Generally, all of those old Sports Authority stores were well located,” he said. “So this just reinforces the idea that there is still demand for good, physical real estate.” About 7.8 million square feet of retail space is empty in the St. Louis area today — or about the size of 200 Sports Authority stores — giving the region a vacancy rate of 5.1 percent, up from 4.8 percent at the end of 2017, according to market research from CoStar. Nevertheless, that level of occupancy is still the best St. Louis has seen in more than a decade. And the average rental rate landlords have been able to charge has increased for five straight quarters, signaling a turnaround from the renter’s market that has been in place since about 2012. Matt Kopsky, a real estate investment trust analyst for Edward Jones, said he’s starting to see Sports Authority locations fill up elsewhere in the country. “It’s diicult to fill these boxes so it can take some time with having to clean up or

build out the new space,” he said. Retail bankruptcies similar to Sports Authority have hurt many real estate owners. More hits are on the horizon with Toys R Us and Babies R Us set to close nearly 800 stores later this year, including seven in the St. Louis market.

The Babies R Us closing could be especially detrimental in South County, where a Babies R Us sits next door to a vacant Sports Authority in Southpoint Plaza, near the intersection of Lemay Ferry Road and Interstate 270. Babies R Us is expected to close this

summer, which would leave the two anchor stores vacant in that shopping plaza. And given its location, where dozens of big name retailers already do business, there are few retailers of that size that can fill that type of space. “There’s not a lot of tenants that fit into those types of boxes,” Ciapciak said. “There are tenants above the 50,000-square-foot range and under the 25,000-square-foot range, but not many in that 35,000- to 40,000-square-foot range. Those boxes are either too big or too small.” An option for landlords could be to carve them up — basically build walls within the locations that don’t lease and create two smaller stores that would be more in line with market needs. But that takes time and money, Kopsky said. “It would be a hit for (landlord’s) earnings in the near term because they’re not collecting rent in many of those cases,” he said. “But in the long term, when you split boxes into multiple tenants, you’d be collectively earning higher rent. The concern is that there could be too much supply on the market at once, which would put the pricing power back in the tenants’ favor.” Brian Feldt • 314-340-8528 @bfeldt on Twitter bfeldt@post-dispatch.com

current 4G. Sprint owns an abundance of spectrum that’s especially useful for 5G, but Sprint has been struggling financially. T-Mobile, meanwhile, can tap the deep pockets of its German parent, Deutsche Telekom. “Together, we will have the right mix of available spectrum, but more importantly, we will have the enhanced financial position backed by a team of rock stars that knows how to roll out an advancement of this scale quickly,” T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere said Monday in a conference call. Sprint Chairman Marcelo Claure noted that the U.S. has fallen behind China and South Korea in 5G readiness. “And I’m sure you will all agree that is unacceptable,” he added. Such an argument will be hard for the Trump administration to dismiss,

given the emphasis it places on competing with China. The companies also pledge to create jobs, another talking point crafted to win political backing. Daniel Lyons, a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, thinks the companies make a strong technological case for the deal. “There is something to it,” he said. “Sprint has the spectrum licenses but not the capital to build out a network. T-Mobile has the capital but they don’t have the spectrum they would need.” Kades, however, says technological arguments rarely carry much weight when a market is already concentrated. “I don’t think a court has approved a four-to-three merger based on eiciency claims,” he says. Looking only at the big four carriers does miss some subtleties of the mobile market. Cable companies, led by Charter and Comcast, are look-

ing to ofer wireless service, as is Dish Network. So the regulators could hope that, even after a merger, those companies might provide vigorous competition. They also could view them as alternative sources of capital for Sprint. “If the Justice Department nixes this merger, that’s probably where Sprint is likely to go, to one of the cable companies or somebody like (Dish CEO) Charlie Ergen,” Lyons said. Ultimately, regulators’ decision on the merger comes down to a judgment on Sprint’s long-term viability. T-Mobile’s $26.5 billion bid is clearly the best outcome for Sprint shareholders, but antitrust law is supposed to be about what’s best for consumers.

hurdles when trying to prescribe Acthar, and a majority of those surveyed say they are therefore less likely to prescribe the drug now than they were a year ago. Almost half said they would be willing to prescribe a competing product when it enters the market if the price discounts are steep enough. “Acthar has always been and continues to be front and center as the key focus of debate,” Leerink said. Prior to the analyst’s report, a whistleblower lawsuit was filed on April 10 by a former employee, Rasvinder Dhaliwal, who alleges she was fired for raising concerns about Acthar. Dhaliwal, a New York resident, began working for the company after her employer, Questcor, was acquired by Mallinckrodt in 2014. In her role, she helped develop and maintain relationships with insurance companies. At one point, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Acthar is the biggest revenueIsland asked her creating drug at Mallinckrodt. to provide the clinical data for Acthar that was provided to the Food and Drug Administration so they could evaluate the eicacy of the drug for the other uses the company encouraged. She did not know how to respond, and began to ask questions. She alleges she was told that they did not have that clinical data and that it likely did not exist. “In short, Ms. Dhaliwal’s supervisors were instructing her to misrepresent the actual clinical data concerning Acthar in order to alleviate the reimbursement hurdle by government payors to improperly increase Acthar sales, essentially causing the submission of false or fraudulent claims for payment or approval,” according to the lawsuit. Dhaliwal alleges that Mallinckrodt is unaware of the actual formula of Acthar, according to the federal lawsuit filed in the southern district of New York. According to the lawsuit, Dhaliwal was told during a company meeting that “if the FDA knew that no one at the Company had information pertaining to the actual ingredients for the drug, the agency could open up the label for review and request that information, indicating that if that were to happen Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals would be shut down.” Mallinckrodt was allegedly given the exact recipe for the drug in a file they cannot open, according to the suit. And at one point, she was told, “For your own knowledge, there’s other (stuf) in the vial.” “When Ms. Dhaliwal made the allegations outlined in her lawsuit known to Mallinckrodt, the company promptly engaged the services of an outside legal counsel, Skadden Arps, who conducted a thorough review of her concerns. We believe the company has acted responsibly at all times, strongly disagree with these allegations and intend to vigorously defend this matter,” Mallinckrodt said in a statement.

How small businesses can navigate the trade wars BY CHRISTOPHER RUGABER aP Economics Writer

The administration of President Donald Trump has so far avoided a trade fight with Europe by temporarily exempting it from hefty steel and aluminum tariffs. Yet the move also extends the uncertainty weighing on small businesses that use those materials, a much broader group than you might think. For example, Gary Cammack, the owner of Cammack Ranch Supply in Union Center, S.D., is worried that he will have to raise prices on steel barbed wire that he sells to ranchers, from $60.95 a roll to as high as $67. And Erin Calvo-Bacci, coowner of chocolate maker CB Stufers, based in Swampscott, Mass., is concerned that the duties will ultimately lead to higher prices for the steel tables, rolling racks and molds she buys. Trump slapped 25 percent duties on steel and 10 percent on aluminum in March, citing excess imports that have hurt U.S. metals manufacturers and national security concerns. Yet he excluded the European Union and six other countries, easing the blow and leaving the tarifs imposed on just 30 percent of steel imports. On Monday he extended the EU’s exemption for another month. The extension comes just as U.S. officials traveled to China on Thursday and Friday for talks on a separate trade dispute. Here are strategies small businesses can follow to ease the blow of trade fights:

BE INFORMED Many small businesses are simply unprepared for the disruption that could stem from a trade war with China, said Stephan Galarneau, vice president for small business at Livingston International, a con-

sulting firm. That’s also true for other trade disputes, such as Trump’s threats to withdraw from NAFTA. “They’re not ready for a worst case scenario,” Galarneau said. “You want to avoid being passive about this.” Many small companies may be more likely to get caught up in trade fights than they realize. Perhaps your firm doesn’t import raw materials or machinery from China, but what about your suppliers? The U.S. has published a list of roughly 1,300 products that it has threatened to hit with tarifs as part of a trade dispute. The Trump administration argues that China forces U.S. companies to turn over technology to access China’s market and has proposed slapping duties on $150 billion worth of Chinese imports. China has responded by threatening to levy duties on $50 billion worth of U.S. goods.

LOOK FOR ALTERNATIVES Smaller companies may not have the staf to maintain global supplier networks, but they can still explore alternatives, Galarneau said. In many Asian markets, business relationships take time to cultivate. “Do you know how long it takes to find a new, secure provider in Vietnam?” he asked. “You don’t just go on the web.” Soap company Dr. Bronner’s works with a consultant to maintain at least two sources for every item it imports, said Benny Andrade, senior logistics manager at the company. WORK WITH PARTNERS For small companies that are part of larger supply chains, getting multinational companies to purchase the necessary raw materials can help weather trade disruptions. That’s what many auto makers did for their parts suppli-

ers after President George W. Bush’s administration imposed tarifs on steel imports in 2002. The auto companies now use their purchasing power to negotiate longer-term steel prices that they then pass on to their suppliers. David Arndt, President of Springfield, Ohio-based manufacturer Pentaflex, says he gets about 85 percent of his steel under contracts with auto and truck makers. They typically reset prices only once a quarter, so that gives him some predictability and protection. He still has to buy about 15 percent of his steel on the open market, where prices have risen by as much as 26 percent, Arndt said.

POLISH YOUR BRAND When executives at Dr. Bronner’s heard from its Mexican distributors that anti-American sentiment might hurt sales of its products, they took an original approach. The company made a series of short videos emphasizing the Mexican roots of the majority of its U.S. employees, Andrade said. “You have to embrace your diversity, then you are more connected,” he said. LOOK FOR LOOPHOLES If a small business really needs a type of steel and can’t find it anywhere in the United States, it can petition for an exemption from tariffs. The White House has set up a process to request exclusions from the steel and aluminum tarifs. Still, Paul Nathanson, a lobbyist for the Precision Metalforming Association, says it can be daunting. There are already nearly 5,000 such requests. Nathanson recommends hiring a lawyer if possible to help navigate the process. And “be realistic about your chances of success.”

Anheuser-Busch orders up to 800 of Nikola’s hydrogen-fueled big rigs

A rendering of a Nikola semi-truck for brewer Anheuser-Busch. BY ERIC M. JOHNSON reuters

Budweiser beer maker Anheuser-Busch said Thursday that it had reserved as many as 800 hydrogen-fueled semitrucks from Nikola Motor Co. as part of plans to convert the brewer’s dedicated long-haul fleet to renewable powered trucks by 2025. The order would be large when compared with pre-orders so far for Tesla Inc.’s all-electric Semi and is further evidence that fleets needing to move cargo hundreds of miles are willing to give costlier new technologies a try. Truck makers such as Daimler AG, Navistar International Corp and its partner Volkswagen AG are also investing in electric models in a bet that the market will shift over the next decade. Anheuser-Busch InBev, which has its U.S. headquarters in St. Louis, expects to integrate the trucks into its fleet beginning in 2020, it said, but both companies declined to say how much if anything Anheuser-Busch plunked down to reserve the trucks or how many would ultimately be added to the beer maker’s network. Salt Lake City-based Nikola said its trucks would have a range of 500-1,200 miles and take about 20 minutes to refuel, shaving minutes of the average time it takes to fuel up a diesel rig. Time-tested diesel trucks are

capable of traveling up to 1,000 miles on a single tank of fuel and cost about $150,000 on average. Nikola said it planned to charge $400,000 on average for its trucks, but tractors can be leased as well. Truck leasing firm Ryder System Inc. will be providing the dealer network for sales and service, Nikola said. Ryder did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Nikola Chief Executive Officer Trevor Milton said that the company would build more than 700 hydrogen stations across the United States and Canada by 2028 and that the company has nearly $9 billion worth of preorders, though its trucks are still in the prototype phase. “We are building to order, not speculation, and are very excited for what’s to come,” Milton said, in a not-so-veiled dig at Tesla, which launched its all-electric Semi in November. Tesla promises its Semi will be delivered next year with a range of up to 500 miles on a single charge. It has more than 450 reservations so far — including 40 from Anheuser-Busch — but faces skepticism over range, payload and cost. The fight between Nikola and Tesla — companies named after the Serbian inventor Nikola Tesla — spilled from the highway to the courtroom this week when Nikola sued Tesla alleging design patent infringements.

With pot gaining acceptance, more users get hired MARIJUANA • FROM B1

could become the 10th state to do so in November. Missouri appears on track to become the 30th state to allow medical pot use. And medical marijuana users in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island have won lawsuits in the past year against companies that rescinded job offers or fired workers because of positive tests for cannabis. Before last year, courts had always ruled in favor of employers. President Donald Trump’s administration also may be softening its resistance to legal marijuana. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta suggested at a congressional hearing last month that employers should take a “step back” on drug testing. “We have all these Americans that are looking to work,” Acosta said. “Are we aligning our ... drug testing policies with what’s right for the workforce?” There are no definitive data on how many companies conduct drug tests, though the Society for Human Resource Management found in a survey that 57 percent did so. Nor are there any recent data on how many have dropped marijuana from mandatory drug testing. But interviews with hiring executives, employment lawyers and agencies that help employers fill jobs indicate that dropping marijuana testing is among the steps more companies are taking to expand their pool of applicants to fill a near-record level of openings. Businesses are hiring more people without high school diplomas, for example, to the point where the unemployment rate for non-high school graduates has sunk more than a full percentage point in the past year to 5.5 percent. That’s the steepest such drop for any educational group over that time. On Friday, the government is expected to report another robust jobs report for April. Excluding marijuana from testing marks the first major shift in workplace drug policies since employers began regularly screening applicants in the late 1980s. They did so after a federal law required that government contractors maintain drug-free workplaces. Many private businesses adopted their own mandatory drug testing of applicants. Most businesses that have dropped marijuana tests continue to screen for cocaine, opiates, heroin and other drugs.

Shoppers leave the Essence cannabis dispensary in Las Vegas in 2018. As pot use becomes more accepted, some companies are dropping it from their drug tests for job applicants.

But James Reidy, an employment lawyer in New Hampshire, said companies were thinking harder about the types of jobs that should realistically require marijuana tests. If a manufacturing worker, for instance, isn’t driving a forklift or operating industrial machinery, employers may deem a marijuana test unnecessary. “Employers are saying, ‘We have a thin labor pool,’” Reidy said. “‘So are we going to test and exclude a whole group of people? Or can we assume some risks, as long as they’re not impaired at work?’” Yet many companies are reluctant to acknowledge publicly that they’ve dropped marijuana testing. “This is going to become the new ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’” Reidy said. In most states that have legalized marijuana, such as Colorado, businesses can still, if they wish, fire workers who test positive. On the other hand, Maine, which also legalized the drug, became the first state to bar companies from firing or refusing to hire someone for using marijuana outside work. Companies in labor-intensive industries — hoteliers and home health care providers and employers with many warehouse and assembly jobs — are most likely to drop marijuana testing. By contrast, businesses that contract with the government or that are in regulated industries, such as air travel, or that have

safety concerns involving machinery, are continuing marijuana tests, employment lawyers say. Federal regulations require the testing of pilots, train operators and other key transportation workers. After the Drug-Free Workplace Act was enacted in 1988, amid concerns about cocaine use, drug testing spread to most large companies. All Fortune 500 companies now engage in some form of drug testing, according to Barry Sample, a senior director at Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest testing firms. Dropping marijuana testing is more common among employers in the nine states, along with the District of Columbia, that have legalized pot for recreational use. In Denver, in a state with just 3 percent unemployment, 10 percent of employers that screen for drugs had dropped marijuana as of 2016, according to a survey by the Employers Council, which provides corporate legal and human resources services. “It’s because unemployment is virtually nonexistent” in Colorado, said Curtis Graves, a lawyer at the council. “People cannot aford to take a hard line against of-duty marijuana usage if they want to hire.” That’s particularly true in Colorado’s resort areas, where hotels and ski lifts are heavily staffed with young workers, Graves said: “They can lose their jobs and walk across the street and get another one.” FPI, a property-management firm in San Francisco that employs 2,900 around the country, from leasing managers to groundskeepers, has dozens of jobs listed on online boards. Its ads say applicants must pass a “full background check and drug screening.” But it adds, “As it relates to marijuana use, FPI will consider any applicable state law when dispositioning test results.” FPI didn’t respond to requests for

comment, which isn’t unusual given that companies that have dropped marijuana tests aren’t exactly billboarding their decisions. Most still seek to maintain drugfree workplaces and continue to test for harder drugs. “They’re pretty hush-hush about it,” Graves said. AutoNation, which operates dealerships in 17 states, is one of the few companies that have gone public. The firm stopped testing for marijuana about a year ago. Marc Cannon, a company spokesman, said it did so mostly in response to evolving public attitudes. But it also feared losing prospective employees. “The labor market has tightened up,” Cannon said. AutoNation heard from other business leaders, Cannon said. They said things such as, “ ‘We’re doing the same thing; we just didn’t want to share it publicly.’” Relaxed attitudes among employers are spreading from states where recreational marijuana is legal to those where it’s lawful only for medical use, such as Michigan and New Hampshire. Janis Petrini, who owns an Express Employment staffing agency in Grand Rapids, Mich., said that with the area’s unemployment rate below 3 percent, employers were growing desperate. Some are willing to ignore the results of drug tests performed by Express, which still screens for marijuana and won’t place workers who test positive. “We have had companies say to us, ‘We don’t worry about that as much as we used to,’” Petrini said. “We say, ‘OK, well, we are still following our standards.’” One of Reidy’s clients, a manufacturer in New Hampshire, has dropped marijuana testing because the company draws some workers from neighboring Massachusetts and Maine, which have legalized pot for recreational use. Another client, which runs assisted-living facilities from Florida to Maine, has stopped testing its housekeeping and food service workers for marijuana. The stigma surrounding marijuana use is eroding, compounding pressure on employers to stop testing. Sixty-four percent of Americans support legalizing pot, a Gallup poll found, the highest percentage in a half-century of surveys. In Las Vegas, where recreational use is legal, marijuana dispensaries “look almost like Apple stores,” said Thoran Towler, CEO of the Nevada Association of Employers. Many high-tech companies have been moving from California to Nevada to escape California’s high costs, and they’re seeking workers. Towler said the most common question from his 400 member executives was, “Where do I find employees?” He estimated that roughly one-tenth of his group’s members had stopped testing for marijuana out of frustration. “They say, ‘I have to get people on the casino floor or make the beds, and I can’t worry about what they’re doing in their spare time,’” Towler said.

The Cardinals and Chicago Cubs will meet in St. Louis for the 1,185th time Friday night at Busch Stadium, with the Cardinals having won almost 100 more than the Cubs with an overall record of 641543. When all games played between the teams in St. Louis at four venues are included, the Cubs lead overall by nearly 50 victories, having held a huge edge at Robison Field at 149-101. The Cardinals had a succession of horrid teams that played there, running off 24 losing seasons out of the 27 they were at Robison through 1920, tapping out in 1897 and ‘98 when they posted records of 29-102 and 39-111. The Cubs, meanwhile, were in three World Series from 1907-10 and beat the Cardinals 19 times alone in 1908. In all the Busch stadia, including Sportsman’s Park/Busch I, the Cardinals have a whopping edge at 540-394, including 60-48 at Busch III. But the Cubs are the National League Central Division kingpins now, having won the last two division titles, participated in three straight

Jose Martinez felt the goosebumps immediately after he heard that his late father was the last Carlos Martinez to homer in the majors before his good friend accomplished the feat Tuesday. Then the Cardinals’ first baseman dabbed at his eyes to ward of the tears, smiled softly and extended his arm. “Look,” he said while showing his goosebumps. A few seconds later, Martinez leaned back in the chair in front of his locker with a huge smile and called out to Yadier Molina. “Yadi, did you hear?” he said in Spanish. “My dad was the last Carlos Martinez to hit a home run in the majors.” Considering the heartwarming bit of trivia, it was fitting that Jose Martinez gave the biggest hug the Cardinals’ ace received outside the dugout steps after drilling his first career home run Tuesday against the White Sox. Tommy Pham, who was due up next, and Matt Carpenter, who was headed to the on-deck circle, both gave Carlos Martinez a congratulatory tap before Jose Martinez greeted his friend with a strong embrace that showed See ORTIZ • Page C6

There is a couch in the St. Louis University baseball locker room where Miller Hogan often can be found, and it is from this seeming resting spot that the junior has done much of the work that has formed his identity as a pitcher. Hogan will gently toss a baseball at a wall about 20 feet away. He has been known to do this for an hour at a time. He toys with diferent grips, watches the ball leave his hand and then how it reacts. “That’s how I figured out most of my pitches,” he said. “It’s how I learned to throw a sinker and

The Hurricanes extended Richt’s deal through 2023, putting him under contract for six years again. He originally signed a sixyear agreement in December 2015. Financial terms were not disclosed. Richt has been making about $4 million annually. Miami is a private university and does not have to disclose exact contract figures.

Interview with Pujols is one of many pluses The traveling road show known as “Sunday Night Baseball” rolls its new act into St. Louis this weekend for the first time, with longtime lightning rod Alex Rodriguez at the center of the revamped lineup. Rodriguez is one of the best players in the history of the sport but has made as many — often more — headlines for his involvement with performance enhancing drugs and lying about using them. He once was suspended for 211 games by Major League Baseball, a punishment that was reduced by an arbitrator to one full season — 2014. He returned the following year before his playing days ended in 2016. He has come clean and now has found a home in broadcasting, first as a studio analyst for Fox and this year adding the Sunday night analyst role to the mix. He has been refreshingly candid, displays a deep knowledge of the game including its participants and history, and is articulate. He works in the booth with Matt Vasgersian, who has the playby-play role that Dan Shulman relinquished after seven seasons; and fellow analyst Jessica Mendoza, who is in her third season on the show. Buster Olney is the reporter. Rodriguez brings many things to “Sunday Night Baseball,” including interesting interviews with star players that are interspersed in the telecasts. His subject for this weekend’s Cardianals-Cubs game has not been announced. But last Sunday he had a revealing conversation with the Angels’ Albert Pujols, who was on the verge of joining Rodriguez, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays as the only players with

3,000 hits and 600 home runs. Rodriguez asked Pujols, who spent his first 11 seasons with the Cardinals, which of those milestones means the most. “If I had to choose I’d say 3,000 hits,” he said. “That’s a lot of hits, bro. ... That means you’ve had a lot of at-bats.” Pujols related a story about a conversation he had during his rookie season, 2001, with Cardinals manager Tony La Russa. “He was like, ‘What do you prefer — to hit .300 or hit 30 home runs?’ As a rookie I told him I want to hit 30 home runs. He was like ‘AANK! Rookie mistake. If you hit .300, you’re going to drive (in) 100 runs, you’re gonna maybe get your 30 home runs and you’re going to score a lot.’ I put that in mind, man that makes a lot of sense.” He responded with one of the best initial seasons in baseball history, batting. 329 with 37 home runs and driving in 130 runs and scoring 112. He was named the National League rookie of the year. That was just the start of a monster 11 years with the Cards that included three MVP awards. Rodriguez and the rest of the “Sunday Night Baseball” crew will be at Busch Stadium to cover the contest that starts at 7:05 p.m.

Before that Karl Ravech, who is celebrating his 25th anniversary with the company this weekend, hosts the pregame show. It airs after the Dodgers-Padres game that ESPN shows starting at 3:10 p.m.

FOOTBALL FOCUS ESPN has added Jason Witten to its “Monday Night Football” booth. He announced his retirement Wednesday from the Dallas Cowboys after 15 seasons, in which he became one of the top tight ends in NFL history. He replaces Jon Gruden, who left to become the Raiders’ coach. Witten will work with play-by-play announcer Joe Tessitore, who in essence has swapped roles with Sean McDonough. Tessitore goes from calling college games to the pros, with McDonough doing the opposite. • CBS hired former Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians to work as co-analyst with native St. Louisan Trent Green on its team that has Greg Gumbel on play-by-play. • Peter King, a fixture at Sports Illustrated for more than three decades who is noted for his NFL coverage, is leaving to join NBC Sports full time.

Costas gallops back to NBC for the Derby BY DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It has been nearly 11 months since Bob Costas, the longtime face of NBC Sports — and arguably the whole network — made his last regularly scheduled appearance on its airwaves. It was in June, when he served as host of the telecast of the Belmont Stakes. Thereafter, he moved into semi-retirement at the network after hosting more Olympics telecasts than anyone in history. That was in addition to key roles in NBC’s presentation of football, baseball, basketball and horse racing events in a run that spanned 3½ decades. Costas has popped up a handful of times since the Belmont, as part of his deal with NBC to appear on special occasions. In September, he was on its NFL telecast on the Thursday night to kick off the season, but that was it for him with football. He was on its Breeders’ Cup coverage in November because host Mike Tirico had a scheduling conflict. Then he provided a retrospective on the life of legendary sportscaster Dick Enberg after he died in December. But he has no need to look back at what once was a busy schedule. “It’s been an easy transition,” Costas, 66, said this week. “I’m very comfortable.” That transition actually has involved an increased role with MLB Network, as he generally is calling a game each week. Baseball always has been important to him and he broadcast a lot of it when NBC was a major telecaster of the sport during his early years with the network. But he’s back with NBC on Saturday when he co-hosts its Kentucky Derby coverage with Tirico, the man who succeeded him in the lead Olympics role. The Derby is part of his reduced schedule. It’s something he has done for many years, dating to the time he lived in St. Louis and sometimes would make the drive to Louisville. “I enjoy doing the Derby, not because I’m a horse-racing expert but because its a great slice of Americana,” he said. “It’s not just the two minutes of racing that NBC has made into a four-hour show

(in addition to earlier coverage on NBCSN). It’s the whole feel of it. You don’t have to know how to read a Racing Form” to enjoy the Derby.“It should be on everybody’s bucket list to attend.” Post time for this year’s race is 5:46 p.m. and KSDK (Channel 5) has the telecast locally. Costas’ arrangement with NBC also calls for him to be on its Belmont Stakes coverage if that race has the possibility of producing a Triple Crown winner. The Preakness Stakes, at Pimlico in Baltimore, is the middle leg of the Triple Crown series and not part of his deal. But he plans to be there this year, on May 19, because he’ll be in nearby Washington, D.C., the night before to broadcast a Dodgers-Nationals ballgame for MLB Network. So his most prominent NBC appearances now come with horse racing. He in part sets the scene, does interviews and features. “NBC uses me wisely,” he said. “They don’t want me to be a handicapper.” Horse racing handicapping takes a lot of thought and research to do properly, and Costas has taken that approach throughout his career while preparing to cover events. He has been rewarded by being named this year’s recipient of

the Ford C. Frick Award, which the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum presents for superiority in broadcasting the sport. Costas has called it the highest honor of his career, and is in the planning stages of preparing his acceptance speech. “I’ve been thinking about the composure of it, and will write it early June,” he said. That will give him plenty of time to digest, and possibly tweak, it before he receives the honor on July 28 as part of the Hall of Fame weekend festivities in Cooperstown, N.Y. About a month before that, on June 25, the Cardinals plan to honor Costas before a game against the Indians. Although he never was a regular Cardinals broadcaster, his deep St. Louis roots at the start of his career and the fact he lived in the area for many more years and was involved in many charitable endeavours cements him to the city. (He was hired out of college by Bob Hyland, legendary boss of KMOX, 1120 AM, to broadcast games of the American Basketball Association’s Spirits of St. Louis.) “It came as a complete surprise,” he said of the recognition from the Cardinals. “It’s very nice, very touching.” Fans who buy a special ticket for the night will get a Bob Costas bobblehead doll. “Everyone will treasurer their Bob Costas bobblehead,” he said, tongue in cheek.

YOU BETCHA Local horse-racing handicapper Doug Nachman and mostly-retired sportscaster Jay Randolph are back for radio shows previewing the Triple Crown races from a wagering standpoint. The gates open at 6:30 p.m. Friday, when they discuss the Kentucky Derby in a half-hour program on KTRS (550 AM). They duo is set to be back on the same station and time slot on the Friday before the Preakness and Belmont races.

John Peterson smiles after the irst round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

GOLF ROUNDUP

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. • John Peterson started his rookie season on the PGA Tour about the time Tiger Woods started to experience back problems. One of them is closer to walking away than the other. Peterson, the 29-year-old free spirit who has pledged to retire from golf’s vagabond lifestyle if he doesn’t earn enough money to keep his card in three events, made back-to-back eagles late in the opening round Thursday for a 6-under 65 that gave him a two-shot lead in the Wells Fargo Championship. Woods had an unspectacular round of 71 in his return to Quail Hollow after a six-year absence — mostly due to his balky back — and figured it would keep him and everyone else fairly close to the lead on a course that made it tough for anyone to get separation. That was before Peterson came to life. He holed a bunker shot from just under 60 feet away on the par-5 seventh hole. Then he holed a 56-degree wedge from 107 yards in the fairway for eagle on the next hole. It almost got even better. From the trees left of the ninth fairway, his approach cleared the bunker and was headed for the flag as the crowd — “seven or eight people and a Golden Retriever in the grandstands back there,” he said — began to cheer in anticipation. It missed. He missed from 8 feet. All was well. Peterson had never led after any round in 89 starts on the PGA Tour, and he didn’t seem all that worked up over it. “I’m kind of free-wheeling it at this point,” he said. “I know a little bit has been said about me retiring if I don’t

If I don’t make it, I’m not playing golf anymore.” He made clear on more than one occasion he wants to win the Wells Fargo Championship, or the two tournaments he has left. Because of surgery on his left hand two years ago, Peterson started the year needing to make $375,165 in eight tournaments to keep his card. Five events later, he still needs $318,096 and has this week, and then the FedEx St. Jude Classic and Travelers Championship.

Kentucky Derby entrant Mendelssohn was on the track for the irst time Thursday at Churchill Downs after being quarantined for two days after arriving from Ireland.

a robust personality. Stepping onto the Churchill Downs dirt for the first time on Thursday morning, Mendelssohn let out a holler to announce his arrival. There’s nothing shy about this boy. It was Mendelssohn’s public debut after two days in quarantine to ensure that he and three stablemates trained by Aidan O’Brien showed no signs of illness following their overseas flight. “He just did a very gentle exercise around the track,” said Pat Keating, O’Brien’s traveling assistant. “We couldn’t be happier with him. We just wanted to get him out and stretch his legs. No problems. All good.” And that could be bad news for the competition. Mendelssohn has already shown the ability to handle challenges around the globe. After posting a modest 1-for-4 record to start his career in Europe, Mendelssohn headed to California in November to capture the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar. Then it was back to Europe with the long-range goal of preparing for the Derby and the shift from turf to dirt. His first race this year was a victory over a synthetic surface in Ireland. And then came a resounding triumph in the UAE Derby in Dubai in March where Mendelssohn romped by 18 ½ lengths to earn a trip to Kentucky, where he was bred. Returning from the desert, Mendelssohn completed his Derby preparations at the famed Ballydoyle training center in County Tipperary. Now he’s back in the U.S. sporting an impressive record supported by a powerful pedigree. His sire was the late Scat Daddy, who has four sons in this year’s Derby. He is a half brother to the retired mare Beholder, a four-time Eclipse Award winner. The combination of good looks and golden bloodlines are the reason Mendelssohn brought a sales-topping $3 million

at the 2016 Keeneland Yearling Sales from the trio of Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor. “They looked so much alike, Mendelssohn and Beholder,” said Fred Mitchell, who bred both at his Clarkland Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. “They weren’t big foals and they didn’t start maturing until we started prepping them for the sales. He had such a gorgeous eye on him, he was unbelievable. He looked like a classy horse.” And perhaps a bargain, if Mendelssohn notches another win Saturday in his latest travelogue.

KENTUCKY OAKS Kentucky Oaks favorite Monomoy Girl has been impressive, winning five of six starts by a combined 20 ½ lengths. Trainer Brad Cox believes the filly can run even better. Monomoy Girl isn’t the only horse in the field Cox will have an eye on. He is just as excited about Sassy Sienna, who boasts a solid résumé even with fewer victories. Sassy Sienna and Monomoy Girl will be bookend competitors with diferent prospects in Friday’s $1 million race for 3-year-old fillies at Churchill Downs. Monomoy Girl is the 2-1 favorite in the 1 1/8 mile race and will start from the outside post. Sassy Sienna will begin on the rail at 15-1 but could set the early pace in the 14-horse field that includes 5-2 second choice Midnight Bisou, winner of three in a row. Cox is anxious to see how his insideoutside combination performs in a race that will go a long way toward determining the year’s top filly. “Sassy will be close,” said Cox, who also has a third entrant in 30-1 longshot Kelly’s Humor. “Her and Monomoy have similar styles as far as where we would like for them to be placed in the race. “Obviously, there’s going to be concern with one being caught wide in the first turn and the other one hopefully getting a clean run.”

NOTEBOOK Ichiro is moving to Mariners’ front oice Ichiro Suzuki is leaving the playing ield and transitioning into a front oice role with the Seattle Mariners, although he is not completely shutting the door on playing again. The Mariners announced Thursday that Suzuki was becoming a special assistant to the chairman efective immediately. The team says Suzuki will have an active presence with the team and assist with outield play, base running and hitting. But nowhere in the announcement do they say the 44-year-old is retiring. Suzuki is in his 18th season and had appeared in 15 games this year for the Mariners. DeGrom expected to make next start • Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is on track to take his next turn in the rotation Monday at Cincinnati after a scan and examination determined no major injury occurred when the righthander hyperextended his pitching elbow batting. DeGrom left Wednesday night’s game against Atlanta after four innings, one inning after he felt pain while striking out. He had an MRI, then was checked Thursday by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. “A couple times when I’ve swung and missed this year, I’ll feel a little something in the back of my elbow, but it never has bothered me throwing,” deGrom said. “And then when I went back out there, it was kind of more in my biceps, like I felt a little something. So I think I erred on the side of precaution.” A 29-year-old who was the Mets’ only top starting pitcher not to get hurt last year, deGrom said he felt pain free. He intends to throw a bullpen session Saturday. DeGrom is 3-0 and has thrown 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 1.87. Dodgers’ Ryu out awhile • Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said lefthander Hyun-Jin Ryu will be sidelined until after the All-Star break with a severe left groin strain. The injury occurred when Ryu, 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA this season, threw a pitch with one out in the second inning of Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Roberts said the groin muscle had torn from the bone. Cabrera returns, is injured again • Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera left Thursday’s game at Kansas City after straining his right hamstring while taking second base in the sixth inning at Kaufman Stadium. Cabrera was back in the lineup Thursday at designated hitter after missing the last three games with biceps spasms. Yankees, Red Sox to play in London • Major League Baseball intends to announce next week the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will play two games at London’s Olympic Stadium on June 29-30 next year, a person familiar with the planning told The Associated Press. Boston will be the home team for both of MLB’s irst regular-season games in Europe. Other news • Toronto third baseman Josh Donaldson returned after nearly one month on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury.... Arizona activated right ielder Steven Souza Jr., who has been sidelined since spring training due to a strained pectoral muscle.

NOTEBOOK Ichiro is moving to Mariners’ front oice Ichiro Suzuki is leaving the playing ield and transitioning into a front oice role with the Seattle Mariners, although he is not completely shutting the door on playing again. The Mariners announced Thursday that Suzuki was becoming a special assistant to the chairman efective immediately. The team says Suzuki will have an active presence with the team and assist with outield play, base running and hitting. But nowhere in the announcement do they say the 44-year-old is retiring. Suzuki is in his 18th season and had appeared in 15 games this year for the Mariners. DeGrom expected to make next start • Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom is on track to take his next turn in the rotation Monday at Cincinnati after a scan and examination determined no major injury occurred when the righthander hyperextended his pitching elbow batting. DeGrom left Wednesday night’s game against Atlanta after four innings, one inning after he felt pain while striking out. He had an MRI, then was checked Thursday by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. “A couple times when I’ve swung and missed this year, I’ll feel a little something in the back of my elbow, but it never has bothered me throwing,” deGrom said. “And then when I went back out there, it was kind of more in my biceps, like I felt a little something. So I think I erred on the side of precaution.” A 29-year-old who was the Mets’ only top starting pitcher not to get hurt last year, deGrom said he felt pain free. He intends to throw a bullpen session Saturday. DeGrom is 3-0 and has thrown 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 1.87. Dodgers’ Ryu out awhile • Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said lefthander Hyun-Jin Ryu will be sidelined until after the All-Star break with a severe left groin strain. The injury occurred when Ryu, 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA this season, threw a pitch with one out in the second inning of Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Roberts said the groin muscle had torn from the bone. Cabrera returns, is injured again • Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera left Thursday’s game at Kansas City after straining his right hamstring while taking second base in the sixth inning at Kaufman Stadium. Cabrera was back in the lineup Thursday at designated hitter after missing the last three games with biceps spasms. Yankees, Red Sox to play in London • Major League Baseball intends to announce next week the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will play two games at London’s Olympic Stadium on June 29-30 next year, a person familiar with the planning told The Associated Press. Boston will be the home team for both of MLB’s irst regular-season games in Europe. Other news • Toronto third baseman Josh Donaldson returned after nearly one month on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury.... Arizona activated right ielder Steven Souza Jr., who has been sidelined since spring training due to a strained pectoral muscle. Associated Press

SERIES PREVIEW: CARDINALS VS. CUBS

NOTEBOOK

SCOUTING REPORT • The Chicago Cubs have scored just 15 runs in their last eight games, yet won ive of them, because of the uptick in their starting pitching. They scored three or fewer in all eight games. Manager Joe Maddon moved slumping Anthony Rizzo (.149 through April) to the leadof spot on Tuesday and he homered. Maddon hit Rizzo fourth Wednesday and he also homered. But the Cubs scored only one other run, total, in consecutive losses to Colorado. This weekend series will be the irst of three the Cubs play here this year. The next will be June 15-17 and the last on July 27-29. The Cardinals will have only one summer series in Chicago, a ive-gamer from July 19-22, before inishing the season there with three games on Sept. 28-30. Chicago is pondering what to do with promising switch hitter Ian Happ, who has fanned 36 times in 73 at-bats. Second baseman Javy Baez, who has had his own strikeout issues, has been the Cubs’ best player this season, hitting .279 with seven homers and 26 RBIs. Former Cardinal Jason Heyward is one for 18 and down to .229, fanning three times in a row on Wednesday. PITCHING MATCHUPS Friday, 7:15 p.m. RH Miles Mikolas (3-0, 3.27 ERA) vs. LH Jose Quintana (3-1, 5.74). Saturday, 1:15 p.m. RH Luke Weaver (2-2, 5.17) vs. RH Tyler Chatwood, 2-3, 2.83). Sunday, 7:05 p.m. RH Michael Wacha (4-1, 3.62) vs. LH Jon Lester (2-1, 2.73).

Carpenter says shoulder is ine

Rick Hummel

Veteran isn’t concerned that his slow start will continue BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-dispatch

Even if Matt Carpenter hadn’t doubled and homered on Tuesday or made several good defensive plays, including strong, accurate throws on the run on both days, he would like to assure Cardinal Nation that his shoulder is fine. And that his back, which bothered him this spring, is all right, too. Carpenter, who labored under .200 for most of the first month of the season, is aware that the fan base has been anxious about a recurrence of right shoulder problems after he bounced a throw or two recently. “I bounced one the other day and now the narrative is, ‘Oh, his arm’s hurt,’” said Carpenter. “I get balls bounced to me all the time when I’m playing first base and I don’t immediately assume that something’s wrong. Outside of a couple throws that didn’t go the way I wanted, I feel I’ve played good defense.” Carpenter almost wishes that he hadn’t been so forthcoming last year when he acknowledged that his right shoulder was giving him problems, perhaps mostly at bat. Despite a .384 on-base percentage, he batted .241 and wondered aloud if switching infield positions among first base, second base and third base, had made his arm sore. “Any time you give anybody something, like last year when I said I had a little shoulder thing, it’s going to follow me forever,” said Carpenter. “That’s just the way it is. I mean, I get it. But I don’t know how many times I can say my shoulder is fine. It’s just like the leadof thing. I can tell people I don’t care where I hit. They just don’t believe it. “The shoulder’s fine. They don’t believe it. “They’re going to always blame it on something. Sometimes, the biggest problem with

people, in general, is they want an answer for everything. There’s not an answer for it. I’m of to a slow start.” Even with a recent upturn, his average is .167. But Carpenter said, “I’ve hit below .200 before (.190 in June, 2015) in a month. It happens. It’s really more magnified that it was the first month to start the season. If I hit .350 in April and .150 in May, nobody’s saying, ‘Oh, he’s of to a horrible start. He’s just having a bad month.’ “I’m not concerned. I’ve had months where I haven’t been very good. It’s just part of the game. The months when I hit sub. .200 in my career, I felt way worse than I feel now, so that’s encouraging. “Plenty of games left. A lot of opportunity left. A lot of time to make adjustments. I’m not panicking.” Carpenter is hitting second now and man-

ager Mike Matheny said that could give new leadoff man Tommy Pham the ability to be freer to steal bases with nobody in front of him. Carpenter takes a lot of pitches anyway, so that also could help Pham, who leads the team with six steals. Carpenter also has hit first and third and knows why he has been moved around. “I’m struggling and so he bats me anywhere, so it doesn’t matter,” Carpenter said. “When you’re hot, you’re hot and when you’re cold, you’re cold. Second’s a good spot. I’ll do what I need to do in that role and see what happens. “But I’m healthy. I’m not going to sit here and say anything other than that.”

DOWN ON THE FARM Class AAA Memphis, which won 91 games last year in the regular season, got off to a 19-8 start this year. Outfielder Oscar Mercado, who never had played in Triple-A before, was pacing the team with a .326 average, 19 runs scored and nine stolen bases. Tyler O’Neill, who had a brief fling with the big club this year, led with six homers and Patrick Wisdom led with 19 RBIs. John Gant, who gained a win in relief with the Cardinals, led the staff with four wins and a 2.40 ERA and Preston Guilmet had five saves. Lefthander Austin Gomber, promoted to the Cardinals after striking out 16 hitters in a game for Memphis, was named the organization’s pitcher for the month after going 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA. And 20-year-old infielder Juan Yepez was named player of the month after hitting .438 with 18 RBIs at Class A Peoria. Yepez was acquired from Atlanta in the Matt Adams trade last year.

A smattering of Cubs fans cheer as Kolten Wong dives for a wild throw by Jaime Garcia during the 2015 National League division series at Busch Stadium.

Cards, Cubs resume head-to-head battle in NL Central CARDINALS • FROM C1

league championship series and won the 2016 World Series. Rarely were the teams contenders in the same era, but they have captured the last five division titles. Since 2000, either the Cardinals or Cubs have won 14 of the 18 division championships, with the Cardinals tying for another. Though there seems to have been more tension in head-to-head meetings in the last two decades, whether it was Tony La Russa teams against those of Dusty Baker or Lou Piniella or Mike Matheny against Joe Maddon, the rivalry still seems reasonably tame among the historic rivalries such as the Red Sox-Yankees or DodgersGiants. Cardinals coach Willie McGee, who has played with the Cardinals, Boston and San Francisco, said from his playing perspective, “I like the Cubs-Cardinals rivalry because it was, you might say, fan-friendly. It’s a natural, classic, good-natured thing. It wasn’t like hatred. “It was fun. You’d go into Chicago and they’d get on you if you did something bad but if you did something good, they’d acknowledge it. It was like baseball was supposed to be. “But then you’ve got Boston-New York and that’s blood and guts there. “The Giants and Dodgers were kind of in between. The Giants draw well now but back then (McGee played with the Giants from 1991-94), if you were winning, the stands were going to be full but if you were losing, they’d be empty. Now, it’s diferent.” Cardinals assistant hitting coach Bill Mueller played for four of the six teams in

those rivalries. He missed only the Yankees and the Cardinals, for whom he has coached and for whom he rooted growing up here. He also coached with the Cubs. “Each rivalry creates its own atmosphere,” said Mueller. “They’re all intense. The fans get into it and normally both teams are going to be competitive and that’s what creates even more of the emotion. The will of wanting your team to win is strong in all the areas but it’s heightened when both teams are real close in the standings.” From his playing experience, Mueller said, “It’s fun to be a part of something that creates more emotion than playing a last-place team. But they’re all good. I couldn’t rank them because they’re so special in their own regard. I loved being a part of all of it.” The most special for Mueller, probably, was in 2004 when he singled home the tying run in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the American League championship series as the Red Sox rallied to win that game from the Yankees and then the next three. Moving on, the Red Sox then swept the Cardinals to win the World Series. The one he liked least being part of probably was the game of May 14, 2001, at Busch II when Cubs third baseman Mueller, chasing a pop foul, slid underneath the railing of the third-base stands, slammed into a bolt on an advertising sign and suffered a shattered left kneecap. His mother drove him to the hospital and Dr. George Paletta operated on his knee in a lengthy procedure. “It was Mother’s Day,” recalled Mueller. “Nice Mother’s Day gift.” Amid rivalries, there have been very few trades, with the huge exception of Brock

for Broglio in 1964. Perhaps that’s why the Cubs didn’t seem as interested anymore. The last trade the two sides consummated was on Aug. 25, 2002, but it was hardly significant as the Cardinals acquired lefthanded reliever Jef Fassero for minor league pitchers Jared Blasdell and Jason Karnuth. McGee called all three aforementioned rivalries “playof-like atmospheres. They were intense, but in a diferent heat. The heat in Boston and New York was like ultra-hot. On the East Coast, you look in the stands in New York and Philadelphia, and the fans were, like, fighting the police. “Here’s it’s just good, old-fashioned love of the game and the players. The fans are going to be there regardless, as long as you give an efort.” After Cubs-Cardinals games, one often can see fans from the two sides socializing over a cold one or two. Not so much with Red Sox and Yankees fans. “I don’t know if I’d want to be in that bar in New York,” joked McGee, “or you’d have a Yankees jersey on in Boston. “Here, it’s left at the park.” From an active player’s standpoint, Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter said the current Cubs-Cardinals matchups provide the most emotion of any he experiences now. “I’d had rivalries at every level,” he said. “When I was at TCU, Baylor was the big rival and you don’t want to lose to those guys. In high school, it was Bellaire in Houston. And, now, obviously it’s CubsCardinals and the magnitude is nowhere close. “But it’s only been big in my career the last three or four years. The first few years of my career the Giants and Dodgers were

way bigger rivals for us. We played way more meaningful games against them than they we did against the Cubs. But’s that changed since 2015.” The game wasn’t played here but McGee was the opening act for Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg in perhaps the most captivating game of the nearly 2,400 in the series. It was played on June, 23, 1984, at Wrigley Field. The Cubs won, 12-11, in 12 innings as Sandberg tied the game with ninth-inning and 10th-inning homers of future Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter. Relatively unnoticed in the hubbub as the Cardinals squandered a 9-3 lead was that McGee had hit for the cycle and had driven in six runs, one fewer than Sandberg, who had five hits and seven RBIs. “It was crazy,” said McGee. “So many guys had outstanding days. That was one of the most fun, best-played games that I ever played in. “What Sandberg did against the greatest closer I’d ever seen or played for ... I mean he hit one and you’d say, ‘I’d never seen that,’ and then he did it again. You can’t top that. You tip your hat. It was tough enough just getting a hit off Sutter. There were days when I felt like I just could sit down in center field with Bruce pitching. “That was center stage, that day.” Sandberg hit only .250 in St. Louis for his career. But he forever will be part of the Cubs-Cardinals drama, which will come center stage again Friday night at Busch. Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

Mizzou softball tries to Hogan was drafted by Brewers salvage bumpy season SLU • FROM C1

BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • For a decade the Missouri softball program was the school’s model of consistency, always winning 30 to 40 games and always reaching the NCAA postseason, with three appearances in the Women’s College World Series. But the program was thrown a curveball nobody expected in January when athletics director Jim Sterk fired longtime coach Ehren Earleywine two weeks before the start of what would have been his 12th season with the Tigers. Under the leadership of interim coach Gina Fogue, a former player and assistant for Earleywine, the Tigers had to first absorb the shock of losing their head coach, then face a brutal schedule that’s proved to be one of the nation’s most diicult. “We rallied around the fact that we’re good enough and talented enough that if we do what we’ve been doing we’ll perform on the field,” junior third baseman Amanda Sanchez said. “Obviously we haven’t gotten as many wins as we’d like, but I still think people underestimate us.” Maybe so, but there’s nothing easy about the rest of Mizzou’s schedule. With one regular-season series left this weekend against No. 4 Florida, the Tigers (2824, 6-14 SEC) are in position to make a 12th consecutive NCAA regional but might miss next week’s SEC tournament on their home field. Mizzou had won four of six SEC games before being swept at South Carolina in its last SEC series. “We’re not a bad team,” junior outfield Kolby Romaine said. “The numbers might not always show that, but we’re definitely out there competing.” Along the way, it’s been a turbulent season marked by youth and injuries. Fogue’s lineup is among the most robust in the powerful SEC but hasn’t been potent enough to ofset troublesome pitching and defense. The Tigers come into this weekend’s series in 11th place in the 13-team SEC, just percentage points ahead of Mississippi State (6-15) and Ole Miss (5-16). Just like last season, the league’s last-place team could make the 64-team NCAA field but won’t be part of next week’s league tournament, set for May 9-12 at Mizzou Softball Stadium. “That would be embarrassing, hosting but not being able to go to your own tournament, just sitting in the stands when everyone knows who you are,” Sanchez said. “But you can’t press too much.” Most of Mizzou’s struggles have started in the pitcher’s circle, where freshman Lauren Rice (11-13) and junior Madi Norman (9-6) have been durable but erratic. The team’s staf ERA of 3.52 is last in the SEC, half a run more than the next-worse average. Mizzou’s pitching problems can be traced back to several crucial departures during Earleywine’s years, none

bigger than Paige Lowary’s defection to Oklahoma. She pitched the Sooners to last year’s College World Series championship and last month was the first overall selection in the National Pro Fastpitch League. Meanwhile, the Tigers have tried to rally around Fogue, whom players praised for her demeanor during a diicult transition. “She’s been levelheaded the whole time,” Sanchez said. “She’s not very loud and confrontational, but she’s stepped up into that role. She’s a great leader for us. I wouldn’t want anyone else being our interim right now.” Fogue, whose status for next season is uncertain, hasn’t talked to her players much about this weekend’s stakes and the race to avoid last place in the SEC. Mississippi State hosts Tennessee while Ole Miss hosts Georgia. Fogue said she’ll make sure MU’s scoreboard operators don’t flash updates of those games during the Tigers’ games this weekend. “We can’t worry about what Ole Miss and Mississippi State are doing,” she said. “That’s my job to make sure they’re in the moment.” That includes wondering about next season. Sanchez earns her undergraduate degree next week but has another year of eligibility. Without knowing who will coach next year’s team, the slugger isn’t sure where she’ll play next season. “Everyone is saying, ‘Don’t focus on (next year),’ and when we’re here on the field we focus on playing,” she said. “But when we leave, you can’t help but think about the unknown.” “It’s definitely in the back of our minds,” Romaine added. “We go out and play and try not to talk about it because it’s out of our control at this point. But it’s definitely there.” As for the postseason beyond the SEC bracket, teams must have a .500 record or better to qualify for an NCAA regional. Mizzou’s quest for .500 was helped last week when Fogue cancelled a nonconference doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday at Wichita State and paid the American Athletic Conference school $5,000 to buy out of the contract. The Tigers replaced the Shockers (No. 31 RPI) with last Saturday’s home doubleheader against Arkansas-Pine Bluff (No. 263) and promptly swept those games 10-0 and 2-0. Fogue insisted the decision was based on the weather forecast, not MU’s NCAA credentials. “I needed to get games in,” she said. “The weather wasn’t looking good (for Wichita) and we had to make a decision. The way the weather was progressing as I kept watching (the radar), it wasn’t looking good.” The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for Wichita on Wednesday, a rare storm the Tigers managed to avoid.

slider, which are two of my best pitches.” Hogan has thrown many types of pitches through the years to the point that teammates joke that it would be easier to list the ones he doesn’t throw than those that he does. The collection he has settled upon for the 2018 season has worked well. After opting not to sign upon being selected in the 32nd round of last year’s major league draft, Hogan is 7-2 and leads the Atlantic 10 with a 1.90 ERA and 92 strikeouts entering Friday night’s start of a three-game home series against Davidson. He is coming of his first shutout of the season and an A-10 pitcher of the week honor, having limited La Salle to three hits while striking out nine to help the Billikens pad their lead atop the conference. Hogan’s immediate pursuit is to get first-place SLU into the NCAA Tournament before he again goes through the suspense of waiting for a phone call in June in hope of a higher draft position and his first professional contract, which he passed on in 2017. “When I got the call, it was a cool moment,” he said of being picked by Milwaukee. “If it didn’t work out the way I wanted, I knew with everyone coming back we had a bright future (at SLU). And hopefully I’ll get a chance to relive that in a month.” The righthander has been tinkering with pitches for years. While working with a limited repertoire in high school in Overland Park, Kan., he finished his senior season without allowing an earned run. In the 2014 Kansas state tournament he pitched a perfect game. This season he is throwing up to five pitches, including a four-seam fastball that he throws in the 91 mph to 93 mph range, a sinker, slider, splitter and curve, which has become his fifth pitch. He has been able to maintain velocity throughout games and was still throwing 93 mph in the ninth inning last week at La Salle. However, the pecking order of his pitches has changed from year to year. In high school he had a fastball and curve until adding a slider as a senior. When he arrived at SLU, the slider was a

strong pitch “but I forgot how to throw a curve.” He experienced the same dilemma as a sophomore with his slider, dropping it to his third choice. Associate coach Will Bradley said what makes Hogan so effective is that he has command of all of his pitches at this point. “I don’t know if we’ve ever had someone who can manipulate the baseball the way he does,” Bradley said. “He constantly keeps guys of balance. He’s a real baseball guy. He’s constantly toying with grips and trying to make himself better.” When Hogan went home last summer, he played with a sinker. He took that to the Cape Cod League and after two shaky appearances he made a breakthrough. Hogan finished his summer with four scoreless starts, which covered 22 innings. Now when he talks about his experiments with a baseball, he talks about spin rate and spin axis. He has used the pitching monitor Rapsodo and follows the work done at the Texas Baseball Ranch, a high tech training facility. He loves the analytics of pitching. “I get made fun of a lot because I’m constantly messing with pitches,” he said. “That’s the most fun — seeing what you can do. I like to see how good I can make a pitch and then think about what I’m doing that makes it so good and then change it slightly to where it might be a little better.” Things have worked well this season. Opponents are hitting .182 against Hogan. He has continued to improve his ability to generate swings and misses and avoid walks. His 92 strikeouts and 10 walks give him the ninth best ratio in the country. For his career at SLU, Hogan is 18-13 with a 2.62 ERA and a better than 4-to-1 ratio of strikeouts to walks. On Friday night, he’ll see what he can do in the follow-up to his best outing of the season. “He’s taken himself to another level,” Bradley said. “We don’t have anyone who works harder or prepares better. His preparation week is as good as anyone we’ve ever had.”

Martinez’s homer reveals depth of a baseball friendship ORTIZ • FROM C1

the deep bond they’ve built over the last two years. Jose Martinez is from Venezuela and the son of a former major leaguer. His teammate Carlos, a native of the Dominican Republic, grew up without a father. The hard-throwing righthander was raised by his maternal grandmother after his mother died when he was a baby. There isn’t a day that goes by when Jose Martinez doesn’t think of his late father, who died of stomach cancer in 2006. And not a day goes by that Carlos Martinez isn’t inspired by the deep hole he climbed out of without a father. Together, they’ve formed one of the deepest friendships on the Cardinals’ roster. They don’t just refer to themselves as brothers. They call each other “hermanitos,” little brothers. “I see Carlos as though he’s like family to me,” Jose Martinez said. “Since I got here, he’s shown me his friendship and he’s shown me that he’s a real person with only one face, as we say in Venezuela.” “Una cara,” is one of the best compliments a Venezuelan can pay you. One face, as you might realize, implies that you’re authentic. The same can be said for Jose Martinez, who has become a respected and wellliked figure in the Cardinals’ clubhouse. Molina, the beloved face of the organization, thought enough of Jose Martinez to visit him this ofseason in Venezuela. To appreciate what that trip to Venezuela meant, it’s important for fans to realize that even some of the closest friends in baseball can go an entire ofseason without speaking to each other until they reunite in spring training. Carlos Martinez’s home run Tuesday afternoon at Busch Stadium helped give fans a glimpse of the tight bond this Cardinals’ team has built already this season. Dexter Fowler sprinted out to the dugout just to splash Carlos Martinez in the face with water from a cup to maintain the tradition Carlos has kept up over the last few seasons. There is also something heartwarming about watching the Cardinals celebrate each home run this season with a conga line, which usually has Carlos Martinez at the front of the line. It’s good for fans to see these young men celebrate like a bunch of kids because it still is just a game, after all. It’s also important for fans to remember that these are also men with family lives away from the park.

All the riches in the world cannot make ballplayers immune from the realities of life. They miss their fathers or mothers just as much as anybody else who has lost a parent. They treasure the memories of their loved ones just as much as any other Cardinals fan. Even though they may come from drastically diferent backgrounds, deep bonds are formed over the years with teammates because ballplayers actually spend more time with each other than their relatives from the time they report to spring training until the final game of the season. That’s why a future Hall of Famer from Puerto Rico such as Molina can become connected for life with fellow team leader Adam Wainwright, a kid from Brunswick, Ga. They all remember the first guys who welcomed them into the majors, whether they were teammates for a few years or a

decade. If you go to the Astros’ clubhouse and ask reigning American League Most Valuable Player Jose Altuve who helped him settle into the majors the most as a rookie in 2011, he’d credit current Cardinals closer Bud Norris in the same way Jose Martinez credits Carlos Martinez. “I love him like a brother,” Carlos said of Jose Martinez. “We get along. He’s here with the team and we truly get along real well. He helps me and I help him.” They are more than teammates, which is why Jose was so moved to know that his teammate became the first Carlos Martinez to homer since his father hit his last home run on June 6, 1995, for the California Angels against the Boston Red Sox’s Derek Lilliquist. “The guy who coached here?” Jose Martinez asked when he found out the home run pitch was delivered by the for-

mer Cardinals pitching coach. “It’s a special day because, look,” Jose Martinez said before pausing to look at the goosebumps forming on his arms. “I feel my dad’s presence daily. I’d say if it was my father who helped (Carlos) hit the home run I hope he’d help us every day. We’ll try to do our best.” Sometimes a solo home run indeed is much more than just a home run. For Jose and Carlos Martinez, the ace’s blast to left-center field reminded them of the roads that brought them together. These men are more than just numbers on the back of a Cardinals jersey. They are somebody’s son, brother, father or dear friend. They miss their loved ones just as much as anybody else. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

Blues have big presence at world championships BY TOM TIMMERMANN St. Louis Post-dispatch

The world hockey championships start on Friday in Denmark, and the Blues will certainly make their presence felt. Ten players who are either on the Blues or are in their development pipeline will take part, as well as Blues coach Mike Yeo, who will be on the staf of Team Canada, and assistant general manager Martin Brodeur, who is the co-GM for that team. The Blues on hand are: for Canada, forwards Brayden Schenn (who is the team’s assistant captain) and Jaden Schwartz and defensemen Colton Parayko and Joel Edmundson (Vince Dunn was named to the team but withdrew because of injury); for USA, forward Tage Thompson; for Czech Republic, forwards Dmitrij Jaskin and Adam Musil; for Finland, goalie Ville Husso and defenseman Niko Mikkola;

and for Russia, forward Nikita Soshnikov. Musil and Mikkola are both Blues’ draft picks who spent all or parts of their season in Europe. Both have represented their countries in the world juniors. The United States and Canada are both in Group B and meet in the first game on Friday at 9:15 a.m. St. Louis time. (Every Team USA game will air live on NHL Network.) Finland is also in Group B; Russia and the Czech Republic are in Group A. The Blues’ 10 players puts them even with Chicago and Edmonton for the most players on hand. Teams still alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs, of course, don’t have players present, other than an occasional minor-leaguer or draft pick who is still playing in Europe.

Capitals’ Wilson suspended • The NHL suspended Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson three games on Wednesday for an illegal hit on Pittsburgh’s Zach Aston-Reese. The league announced the suspension less than 24 hours after Wilson broke Aston-Reese’s jaw with a violent collision near the Washington bench in the second period of Washington’s 4-3 Game 3 victory over the Penguins.

Rookie Jayson Tatum (Chaminade) scored 21 points and hit a pair of free throws in the closing second, and the Boston Celtics rallied from a 22-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-103 on Thursday night and take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Terry Rozier added 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Marcus Smart finished with 19 points and five rebounds as the Celtics improved to 6-0 at TD Garden this postseason. They have never blown a 2-0 lead. J.J. Redick had 23 points for the 76ers, making five 3-pointers. Robert Covington added 22 points and nine rebounds. Joel Embiid finished with 20 points, 14 rebounds and five assists. Philadelphia recovered after squandering its big lead to nudge back in front 9388 midway through the fourth quarter. But an 11-4 run put Boston back in the lead 99-95 with less than four minutes to play. It was 101-97 when a missed Philadelphia jumper led to a 2-on-1 fast break and alley-oop dunk from Rozier to Tatum with 2:23 left. A layup by Dario Saric cut it to 104-101. But Al Horford was able to drive past Embiid for a layup with 8.3 seconds left. Saric scored out of a timeout to make it 106-103. The Sixers quickly fouled Tatum, who calmly hit a pair of free throws. The Sixers looked rejuvenated early in Game 2, using a 14-2 run to begin the second quarter on their way to building a 4826 lead. It didn’t last. The Celtics responded by ending the half on a 25-8 run. It included three straight 3-pointers and a tip-dunk by Jaylen Brown, who returned after sitting out the series opener with a strained right hamstring. He played 25 minutes,with 13 points and four rebounds. The Sixers’ lead was completely erased midway through the third quarter, when Aron Baynes got a 3-pointer to bounce in and put Boston in front for the first time. The lead grew to 76-68 on a baseline dunk by Tatum that capped a 50-20 Celtics run.

Jake Guentzel scored twice to push his playof total to a league-leading 10, Matt Murray stopped 20 shots and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Washington Capitals 3-1 in Game 4 to even their tense Eastern Conference semifinal on Thursday night. Evgeni Malkin added his fourth goal of the playofs for Pittsburgh as the twotime defending Stanley Cup champions pushed back following a chaotic Game 3 that included an illegal hit by Washington forward Tom Wilson that led to a threegame suspension. T.J. Oshie scored for the Capitals, but Washington struggled to find much operating room. Alex Ovechkin failed to register a shot on goal for just the third time in 107 career playof games. Braden Holtby finished with 21 saves but couldn’t quite get a handle on Malkin’s belly-flop shot attempt late in the second period that put Pittsburgh in front to stay. The loss was Washington’s first on the road in the playofs (4-1). Game 5 is Saturday night in Washington.

swapped later-round draft picks and the Hurricanes will retain 10 percent of Kruger’s salary, or about $300,000 of the roughly $3 million Kruger is set to make in 2018-19. The 25-year-old Martinook had six goals and nine assists in 81 games during his fourth NHL season. Kruger had one goal and five assists in his only season with the Hurricanes, who acquired him last summer from Vegas in exchange for a draft pick.

He has 27 goals and 57 assists in 155 career NHL games over the past two seasons.

Brown entered the game for the first time at the 7:14 mark of first quarter. It took less than a minute to make an impact. He missed his first shot attempt before chasing down a loose ball and sprinting ahead for a one-handed dunk . Prior to Thursday, Brown had started every game he’d appeared in this season. It was his first time off the bench since Game 5 of last season’s Eastern Conference Finals. Cavaliers 128, Raptors 110 • LeBron James had 43 points and 14 assists, Kevin Love added 31 points and 11 rebounds, and Cleveland beat visiting Toronto to take a 2-0 lead in their second-round series. J.R. Smith scored 15 points, Jef Green had 14 and George Hill 13 as the Cavaliers posted their eighth consecutive postseason victory over the Raptors and halted Toronto’s four-game winning streak in Game 2s. The Raptors entered 6-1 alltime when playing Game 2 at home. James had eight rebounds, narrowly missing his second straight triple-double. He connected on 19 of 28 attempts, while Love shot 11 for 21. DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry had 21 for the Raptors. Toronto won a team-record 59 games and finished as the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference this season, but was easily shoved one step closer to a third straight postseason exit at the hands of James and the Cavs. Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and 12 rebounds and Fred VanVleet scored 14 points, but the Raptors lost back-to-back home games for the first time all season.

NOTEBOOK Knicks are said to hire Fizdale • A person with knowledge of the details says the New York Knicks have agreed to hire David Fizdale as their new coach. The former Memphis Grizzlies coach will replace Jef Hornacek, who was fired last month after two seasons.

Blues have big presence at world championships BY TOM TIMMERMANN St. Louis Post-dispatch

The world hockey championships start on Friday in Denmark, and the Blues will certainly make their presence felt. Ten players who are either on the Blues or are in their development pipeline will take part, as well as Blues coach Mike Yeo, who will be on the staf of Team Canada, and assistant general manager Martin Brodeur, who is the co-GM for that team. The Blues on hand are: for Canada, forwards Brayden Schenn (who is the team’s assistant captain) and Jaden Schwartz and defensemen Colton Parayko and Joel Edmundson (Vince Dunn was named to the team but withdrew because of injury); for USA, forward Tage Thompson; for Czech Republic, forwards Dmitrij Jaskin and Adam Musil; for Finland, goalie Ville Husso and defenseman Niko Mikkola;

and for Russia, forward Nikita Soshnikov. Musil and Mikkola are both Blues’ draft picks who spent all or parts of their season in Europe. Both have represented their countries in the world juniors. The United States and Canada are both in Group B and meet in the first game on Friday at 9:15 a.m. St. Louis time. (Every Team USA game will air live on NHL Network.) Finland is also in Group B; Russia and the Czech Republic are in Group A. The Blues’ 10 players puts them even with Chicago and Edmonton for the most players on hand. Teams still alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs, of course, don’t have players present, other than an occasional minor-leaguer or draft pick who is still playing in Europe.

Capitals’ Wilson suspended • The NHL suspended Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson three games on Wednesday for an illegal hit on Pittsburgh’s Zach Aston-Reese that broke his jaw.

Rookie Jayson Tatum (Chaminade) scored 21 points and hit a pair of free throws in the closing second, and the Boston Celtics rallied from a 22-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-103 on Thursday night and take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Terry Rozier added 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Marcus Smart finished with 19 points and five rebounds as the Celtics improved to 6-0 at TD Garden this postseason. They have never blown a 2-0 lead. J.J. Redick had 23 points for the 76ers, making five 3-pointers. Robert Covington added 22 points and nine rebounds. Joel Embiid finished with 20 points, 14 rebounds and five assists. Philadelphia recovered after squandering its big lead to nudge back in front 9388 midway through the fourth quarter. But an 11-4 run put Boston back in the lead 99-95 with less than four minutes to play. It was 101-97 when a missed Philadelphia jumper led to a 2-on-1 fast break and alley-oop dunk from Rozier to Tatum with 2:23 left. A layup by Dario Saric cut it to 104-101. But Al Horford was able to drive past Embiid for a layup with 8.3 seconds left. Saric scored out of a timeout to make it 106-103. The Sixers quickly fouled Tatum, who calmly hit a pair of free throws. The Sixers looked rejuvenated early in Game 2, using a 14-2 run to begin the second quarter on their way to building a 4826 lead. It didn’t last. The Celtics responded by ending the half on a 25-8 run. It included three straight 3-pointers and a tip-dunk by Jaylen Brown, who returned after sitting out the series opener with a strained right hamstring. He played 25 minutes,with 13 points and four rebounds. The Sixers’ lead was completely erased midway through the third quarter, when Aron Baynes got a 3-pointer to bounce in and put Boston in front for the first time. The lead grew to 76-68 on a baseline dunk by Tatum that capped a 50-20 Celtics run.

Jake Guentzel scored twice to push his playof total to a league-leading 10, Matt Murray stopped 20 shots and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Washington Capitals 3-1 in Game 4 to even their tense Eastern Conference semifinal on Thursday night. Evgeni Malkin added his fourth goal of the playofs for Pittsburgh as the twotime defending Stanley Cup champions pushed back following a chaotic Game 3. T.J. Oshie scored for the Capitals, but Washington struggled to find much operating room. Alex Ovechkin failed to register a shot on goal for just the third time in 107 career playof games. Braden Holtby finished with 21 saves but couldn’t quite get a handle on Malkin’s belly-flop shot attempt late in the second period that put Pittsburgh in front to stay. The loss was Washington’s first on the road in the playofs (4-1). Game 5 is Saturday night in Washington. Predators 2, Jets 1 • Pekka Rinne made 32 saves, P.K. Subban and Ryan Hartman scored and Nashville held of a late charge in Winnipeg to even their second-round series through four games. Patrik Laine scored of a faceof in the final minute, but Nashville’s Nick Bonino won two key faceofs after that to end it. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots, but Nashville snapped Winnipeg’s 13-

game home winning streak, which dated to March 2. Rinne allowed five goals amid a series of defensive miscues in a 7-4 Game 3 defeat. He rebounded impressively behind a team that was much sharper in its own end. The Jets found far less space in the neutral zone, but also saw a couple of golden opportunities bounce over their sticks.

NOTEBOOK Hurricanes acquire Martinook from Coyotes • The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired left wing Jordan Martinook from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for center Marcus Kruger. The teams also swapped later-round draft picks and the Hurricanes will retain 10 percent of Kruger’s salary. The 25-year-old Martinook had six goals and nine assists in 81 games during his fourth NHL season. Kruger had one goal and five assists in his only season with the Hurricanes. Blue Jackets’ Werenski has surgery • Columbus Blue Jackets defensemen Zach Werenski had surgery for a shoulder injury. He said after the playoffs that the injury from a game in October afected his slap shot the rest of the season.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING Blanchard’s early saves help Rams stay unbeaten against area foes BY STEVE OVERBEY STLhighschoolsports.com

FRONTENAC • Growing

up, MICDS senior Paige Blanchard always was bigger than most of her classmates. So it was only natural that she found a role as a lacrosse goaltender. “You know how it is when you’re little, you put the biggest girl in net,” Blanchard said. She first donned the pads in the fifth grade — and she has been stopping shots on a regular basis ever since. Blanchard turned in another solid performance Thursday in helping MICDS to a 20-7 girls lacrosse win over Villa Duchesne in a Missouri Scholastic Lacrosse Association showdown at Condie Field on the Villa Duchesne campus. The Rams (12-2) continued their dominance of area schools by turning a battle between two of the top teams into a runningclock rout. MICDS improved to 10-0 against Missouri teams and has outscored its Show-Me opponents 181-53 along the way. Blanchard has quietly developed into a gamechanger on the back line. She has allowed just 103 goals in 700 minutes. “Nobody notices her that much,” MICDS coach Kate Haffenreffer said. “But we certainly wouldn’t be where we are right now without her.” Blanchard has spent most of her three seasons as the varsity goalie in the shadows. The Rams’ highpowered offense, which is averaging 16 goals per game, gets most of the glory. But Blanchard came up big with a couple of huge saves early Thursday while her team was clinging to a 1-0 lead.

MICDS goalie Paige Blanchard defends the net during a girls lacrosse game against Villa Duchesne on Thursday at Villa Duchesne Oak Hill School in Frontenac.

“She’s saved our butts many times,” MICDS attacker Mollie Schmid said. “We always know we can count on her back there.” Senior bruiser Jennifer Williams, a defenseman on the MICDS ice hockey team, called Blanchard “a rock.” “So many times she’s been there when we needed her,” Williams said. Such was the case against Villa Duchesne (11-2). Blanchard halted Maria Adamitis and Ellie Marshall from close range in the first three minutes to help turn the tide. “It’s definitely fun to get the shots and make the saves,” Blanchard said. “But it’s even more fun to watch my teammates make those connected passes and score so many goals.” Blanchard had a field day watching her teammates pound home one goal after

another in winning the last two games by a combined 37-13. MICDS beat Lafayette 17-6 on Wednesday. Lafayette, Villa Duchesne and Westminster are considered the top threats to the Rams’ crown. Schmid led a balanced attack with four goals and four assists Thursday. Williams added four goals and two helpers. Caroline Carr scored three times and handed out four assists. Brooke Wright and Olivia Proctor added two goals each. “We practice like we play,” Haffenreffer said. “Usually, we practice at 110 percent and that translates onto the field.” Williams got the ball rolling by scoring just 15 seconds into the match of a nice feed from Proctor. Blanchard then made a couple big saves to set the stage for a 5-1 blitz that put the visitors in control.

Proctor triggered the run with two goals. Schmid pumped the lead to 6-1 after just 11 minutes and 9 seconds. Villa Duchesne battled back to within 7-3 on a goal by Marshall. But MICDS closed the half on a 4-0 run to put the match away. “Skill-wise and commitment-wise, they’re a step above every other team,” Villa Duchesne coach Sydney Tomaso said. “We needed to experience playing against a team of this level.” The big bad Rams have been virtually unstoppable and are a solid choice to claim their fifth area title in the last six years later this month. “Nothing is certain,” Williams said. “Since everyone wants to beat us, that makes us work harder because we know we’ve got to be prepared every single time.”

MISSOURI WATER POLO DISTRICT TOURNAMENT • JOHN BURROUGHS 7, PARKWAY NORTH 5

Woodruf’s late goal lifts Bombers to opening-round win BY GREG UPTAIN STLhighschoolsports.com

WILDWOOD • The multi-

colored bruise on the left side of John Woodruff’s face won’t feel nearly as bad tomorrow as it has the last few days. Woodruff shook off the injury he received in his last game by netting three goals, including the gamewinner with just 50.5 seconds left, to lead John Burroughs to a 7-5 win over Parkway North in a Missouri Water Polo District Tournament play-in game on Thursday at Lafayette High School. “I didn’t play great this game and I had kind of a traumatic last game when someone hit me with their hand,” said Woodruff, a sophomore. “But, this was really exciting. I think this was the most exciting game I’ve played in all year.” John Burroughs coach Chris Lubniewski wasn’t quite buying Woodruff’s

humble description of his recent performances. “He said he’s not playing well, but he’s been our player of the game for the past two weeks,” Lubniewski said. “He’s just a sophomore, but he’s really come into his own and started having really good game awareness.” The 17th-seeded Bombers (7-13) move on to the next round where they will face a daunting task as No. 1 seed SLUH awaits them for an 11:15 a.m. game on Saturday at Lindbergh High School. “SLUH is the No. 1 team. I doubt that we’ll beat them, but we can still play a good game and still try to play good defense,” Lubniewski said. “It’s an experience that we haven’t had before. We haven’t played SLUH in many years, so this will be a learning experience for some of our younger kids to see what the No. 1 school plays like.” Parkway North (7-16), the No. 16 seed, couldn’t

quite pull of a second victory this season over John Burroughs. “It was a great matchup. I was happy with the seeding,” Vikings coach Bret Lundstrom said. “It was a close game. A bounce here or there and it’s a diferent game. They did about all I could ask of them.” The opening quarter

featured seven goals. The Vikings’ Colin Carter struck first just 1 minute and 6 seconds into the game before the Bombers’ Matthew Lorberg tied it just over two minutes later. Then came a flurry of four goals in a span of just 25 seconds. Ryan Garland gave Burroughs a 2-1 lead with 2:39

left in the quarter before Joseph Bockerstett tied it again just eight seconds later. Woodruf’s first goal of the game 12 seconds later restored the Bombers’ lead before Carter tied it 3-3. Carter scored a man-advantage goal with 56.3 seconds left to give Parkway North a 4-3 lead after one quarter. And then the goals just stopped. Both the second and third quarters were scoreless — a rare occurrence — as the teams combined for a scoring drought that lasted a whopping 16:22. Woodruff broke the drought with a goal at the 1:26 mark of the fourth. After Lorberg twice missed giving the Bombers a lead by hitting the crossbar and then the goal post, the Vikings regained the lead at 5-4 on a goal by Bockerstett with 3:33 to go. But, Lorberg did finally find the back of the cage in the fourth with a game-

tying goal of a restart with 2:43 remaining. “Going into the fourth quarter, we changed up our entire ofensive strategy and we were able to break through their really good defense,” Lubniewski said. “We weren’t getting anything happening in the set the whole game. So, we changed up, we started driving and we were able to get a couple goals of that.” After the teams traded possessions, the stage was set for Woodruf’s big goal on a skip shot from long range. “I actually didn’t mean to skip that shot,” he said. “That was a complete accident.” The Vikings called a time out to set up one more play and nearly had the equalizer, but William Borders’ long-range shot went off the crossbar with 26.5 seconds left. “We made a great play there at the end of the game, but we just didn’t finish,” Lundstrom said.

NFL NOTEBOOK

Falcons QB Ryan gets NFL’s richest deal WIRE SERVICES

Matt Ryan is the NFL’s first $100 million man. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback became the league’s highest-paid player Thursday by agreeing to a five-year contract extension that could be worth as much as $150 million. A person familiar with the deal, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms were not released, confirmed that Ryan is assured of receiving at least $100 million. That surpasses the total compensation of the $84 million, threeyear guaranteed deal that quarterback Kirk Cousins received from the Minnesota Vikings. If Ryan receives the full terms of the contract, he would receive an average of $30 million a year,

Committee wants to keep kickoffs • The NFL’s competition committee plans to make a proposal to team owners later this month to change the rules on kickofs in a bid to keep the play in the game rather than eliminate it over injury concerns. The committee’s proposal is expected to be completed by Monday and includes recommendations delivered by special teams coaches. The changes, if ratified by the owners when they meet later this month in Atlanta, would take efect during the upcoming 2018 season. The proposal being formulated Wednesday bans players on the kicking team from getting a running start on their way downfield. It eliminates all forms of “wedge” blocking, where multiple blockers link together, by

also more than Cousin’s $28 million yearly payout. Cousins’ stunning deal set the target for Ryan’s negotiations with the Falcons, though it might be a short stay at No. 1. The Green Bay Packers are trying to complete a new deal with their franchise quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, who will likely be looking to surpass Ryan’s big figure. That’s of no concern to the Falcons, who took care of their major ofseason priority by locking up Ryan once his current deal expires after the 2018 season. He’ll make $19.25 million in the final year of that contract. Ryan was the third overall draft pick in 2008 and has been the Falcons’ starting quarterback ever since. He has only missed two starts over the first decade of his career,

Broncos decline 2019 option on Ray • Denver declined to exercise outside linebacker Shane Ray’s $9.23 million fifth-year option for 2019, a week after selecting North Carolina State pass rusher Bradley Chubb in the NFL draft. Ray, the team’s top pick in 2015 out of Missouri, promised a big bounce-back season after the Broncos selected Chubb with the fifth overall draft pick, something he’ll need if he’s going to cash in as an unrestricted free agent next March. Ray, who turns 25 in two weeks, has started just 15 games in three NFL seasons, collecting 84 tackles, 13 sacks and two fumble recoveries. (AP)

Ready, Set, Move: Quick Move-In Homes Are An Option for Rushed Home Buyers Sponsored Content and Photo by Denise McDonald Dorman

O

ne of the struggles many homebuyers deal with is getting into their new home in a desirable timeline. Move-in dates are sometimes inlexible, and school schedules add pressure to buyers to get past the process quickly. They compromise on the options that will make their home perfect to it an immediate schedule. Consort Homes knows the dilemma and has a solution in its line of pre-built Market Homes from their “Quick MoveIn Homes” program. “About 20 percent of our home buyers fall into this category. They are the ideal candidates for our Quick Move-In Homes solution,” explained Consort Homes’ marketing coordinator, Dawn Thurman. While Consort Homes ofers homes completely built in this program, they are pioneers in ofering the option of already poured foundations for new homes for faster build outs. “The longest part of building a home is permitting to the point of backilling the foundation,” Thurman added. “We always have foundations ready, which accelerates the total build time to about 90 days for those buyers who can aford the time to await a new home from foundation to inish.” While the elevation

is already established, buyers of these pre-poured foundations can go through the design process and customize their color schemes and inishes.” Consort Market Homes buyer Scott Logan recalled, “Having Market Homes available is what brought us to Consort Homes. The build time to start a new build wasn’t meeting our timelines for moving into town. The sales oice and design team were outstanding and made purchasing a home -- what is typically a stressful process -- a fun process. Thanks to the Consort team! We are excited to be part of the new neighborhood there in The Villages at Brightleaf!” Consort Homes is ofering signiicant price reductions on some of their Market Homes in the Carlton Glen and Hawkins Ridge communities in Wentzville and South St. Louis County. Market Homes Specialist Jean Ewell works with buyers--or buyers with realtors--to streamline the process and ensure they are satisied with their Quick Move-In Homes.

Just as with all of Consort Homes’ models, the Market Homes are built with the LiveSmart™ approach for energy eiciency and proven, superior construction. Energy eicient assets include the following: Energy Star® Low-E Windows and Exterior Doors (Ready, Set, Move: Continued on Page 2)

Millennials lead all homebuyers, even as some can’t escape their parents Sponsored Content and infographic by National Association of REALTORS®

H

ome purchases by millennials increased over the past year, but inventory constraints and higher housing costs kept their overall activity subdued and prevented some from leaving the more affordable conines of their Gen X and baby boomer parents’ homes. This is according to the National Association of REALTORS® 2018 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends study, which evaluates the generational differences of recent homebuyers and sellers. The survey additionally found that millennial buyers prioritize living close to friends and family over a home’s location and proximity to schools, and an overwhelming majority used a real estate agent to buy or sell a home. Slightly more than a third of all home purchases were made by millennials over the past year (36 percent; 34 percent in 2017), which kept them as the most active generation of buyers for the ifth consecutive year. Gen X buyers ranked second (26 percent; 28 percent in 2017), followed by younger (18 percent) and older baby boomers (14 percent) and the Silent Generation, those born between 1925 and 1945 (6 percent; 8 percent in 2017). According to Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, this year’s survey indings reveal both what it takes to be a successful millennial buyer in today’s housing market, as well as why, even though sales to millennials reached an all-time survey high, stubbornly low inventory conditions pushed home prices

out of reach for many. As a result, the overall share of millennial buyers remains at an underperforming level. Revealing the greater purchasing power needed over the past year, the typical millennial buyer in the survey had a higher household income ($88,200) than a year ago ($82,000) and purchased the same-sized home (1,800 square feet) at a more expensive price ($220,000; $205,000 in 2017). Millennials also had higher student debt balances than in last year’s survey, and slightly more of them said saving for a down payment was the most dificult task in buying a home. REALTORS throughout the country have noticed both the notable upturn in buyer interest from young adults over the past year, as well as mounting frustration once they begin actively searching for a home to buy,” said Yun. “Prices keep rising for the limited number of listings on the market they can afford, which is creating stark competition, speedy price growth and the need to save more in order to buy.” Added Yun, “These challenging market conditions have caused – and will continue to cause – many aspiring millennial buyers to continue renting unless more Gen Xers decide to sell, and entry-level home construction picks up signiicantly.” This article provided through a partnership between The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and St. Louis REALTORS®.

Chef Michael Voltaggio's kitchen essentials inspire culinary innovation

W

hen award-winning chef and culinary visionary Michael Voltaggio was remodeling his West Hollywood home, he purposefully selected kitchen essentials that facilitate restaurantlevel culinary innovation in a residential setting. Chef Voltaggio’s home kitchen couples superior functionality with style, integrating handpicked ixtures and tools of the trade necessary to establish an environment that inspires an elevated culinary process.

Mindful mise en place One of the most important lessons a chef learns is the concept of mise en place - French for “everything in its place” - to streamline organization and enable eficiency. With expert forethought and understanding of the importance of countertops as a prep canvas, Michael incorporated creative cabinetry and storage solutions into his home kitchen, creating a clean, structured environment. To maximize space, he used his favored methods, such as a vacuum pack machine to clear freezer space, and stackable containers to organize ingredients and increase eficiency. Infusing versatility wherever possible is also key to a high-functioning kitchen.

Tools meet technique Seamless integration of carefully selected everyday essentials will ensure an at-home chef is set up for success

in the kitchen. Michael’s personal kitchen is no exception, being fully equipped with must-have tools such as a customized knife set made to ensure comfort and secure handling, an immersion circulator for commercial-style sous vide cooking, and a Japanese mandoline to slice consistently sized portions for a professional meal aesthetic.

Sophisticated functionality As an anchor ixture in the culinary process, the faucet serves as a key essential for function and design in Michael’s kitchen. The Solna Articulating Kitchen Faucet with SmartTouch Technology by Brizo is inspired by a sleek, Scandinavian aesthetic, bringing crisp lines and beautiful simplicity into any kitchen. Akin to the industrial feel of a commercial kitchen, the faucet’s design offers a full range of motion, a magnetic docking system and innovative touch technology that allows simple water activation ideal for fast-paced kitchen environments.

Ceaseless inspiration Maintaining a source of creative inspiration will ensure at-home cooks are constantly evolving and reining their culinary skills. A must-have essential for Michael is the ever-present stack of cookbooks, offering new and unexplored recipes of classical chefs and contemporaries alike. A dedicated place to take notes also enhances a chef’s ability to ideate while experimenting in the kitchen.

Dream roles Selecting songs for concerts gives Audra McDonald the chance ‘to play roles I haven’t played yet’ BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / POP MUSIC CRITIC / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

roadway powerhouse Audra McDonald is bringing a taste of the Great White Way to the Touhill Performing Arts Center. McDonald’s “Songs From the American Music Theater” tour visits Sunday night, showing why she’s the Tony Award record-holder with a whopping six wins. She’s the only performer to win in all four acting categories. “It’s me taking a journey throughout

the Great American Songbook, exploring songs from all parts of the genre from as far back as ‘Porgy and Bess,’” McDonald says. “We’ll go up to as recently as five or six years ago.” She says the songs are ones that have stuck with her for various reasons. “Some of the songs I’m singing are songs I was inspired to sing because of the artist who originally sang them,” she says. “There’s also songs with diferent special meanings, like where we are in life, where we are in the

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.04.18-05.10.18

country, the world.” One of those songs she felt compelled to sing because of who performed it before her was “Being Good” from Broadway’s “Hallelujah, Baby!,” which ushered Leslie Uggams to stardom. McDonald, a fan of Uggams, says the song resonates with her. “It’s about a young woman saying, ‘I can’t just be good, I have to be the best or nothing at all.’ Growing up as an African-American woman, my parents said, ‘because you are African-American, you already have a strike against you, that you have to not only be as good as, but you have to be better just to be considered equal. And that probably won’t even happen either.’” Another favorite is Ella Fitzgerald’s

Cabello

version of Benny Goodman’s “Flying Home.” Despite the vast amount of songs in the American theater, and having a ton of favorites, narrowing her list to a consumable show size wasn’t too difficult. “I just know in the first couple of seconds of hearing it that I want to sing it,” she says. When selecting songs, she tries her best to pick from shows in which she hasn’t been cast. “It gives me a chance to play roles I haven’t played yet.” McDonald has a Broadway dream role: She wants to star in a genderbending or all-female version of “Sweeney Todd.” She hosted the “Live at Lincoln Center” version of the musical that featured the New York Philharmonic in 2014. “It’s an amazing role written for a man, filled with rage, passion, love and regret, great human emotions,” McDonald says. “And the music’s incredible because it’s Sondheim. Maybe someday someone will let me do it. “I go with roles that are challenging, roles where I think I might have something to say and roles that scare me. If it scares me, it’s something I run toward, not from.” In addition to her tour, McDonald is featured on the second season of “The Good Fight,” now streaming on CBS All Access. The drama stars Christine Baranski. “I’ve been a fan of ‘The Good Wife,’” she says of the show that spawned “The Good Fight,” “as well as (cocreators) Robert and Michelle King. I love the idea of what they wanted to do and taking on heated topics. And the opportunity to work with Christine Baranski and Delroy Lindo seemed like no-brainers.” WHAT Audra McDonald • WHEN 7 p.m. Sunday • WHERE Touhill Performing Arts Center, 1 University Boulevard • HOW MUCH $39-$125 • MORE INFO touhill.org

Jazz musician Peter Martin reunites with his Inner Circle BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

t. Louis-based jazz pianist Peter Martin has played alongside some of the music’s most high-profile artists, including saxophonist Joshua Redman and singer Dianne Reeves. Still, his engagement this weekend at Ferring Jazz Bistro qualifies as something special. The gig will reunite Martin with bassist Christopher Thomas and drummer Brian Blade — and reconvene their trio from the 1990s, which took root in New Orleans. The combo is billed as Peter Martin & Inner Circle. “It’s a name that I’ve been playing around with for years,” Martin says. “I was looking for the right timing and situation to use it. They really are the

inner circle for me and have been for so long.” His connection with Thomas is homegrown: Both are University City High School graduates. And Martin, Thomas and Blade all performed on Redman’s 1996 album “Freedom in the Groove,” which also featured guitarist Peter Bernstein. One of the album’s highlights is Martin’s exhilarating solo on the lead track, “Hide and Seek.” The time spent in Redman’s band strengthened his musical camaraderie with Martin and Thomas, Blade says. “Essentially, that was the last time we were consistently playing together,” he says. “So it’s high time for us to come back

together, to see where we’re standing now.” Inner Circle’s approach to the jazz trio is significantly influenced by pianist Ahmad Jamal’s legendary unit with bassist Israel Crosby and drummer Vernell Fournier, Martin says. “All three of us had listened to a lot of the recordings, and then we listened to them a lot together,” he says. “It wasn’t the only thing that we played, and it’s not like we were exclusively an Ahmad Jamal cover band. But the conception that Ahmad, Vernell and Israel brought to the trio situation was one that we readily identified with.” At the Bistro, jazz fans can expect a wideranging program including “some of the older stuf that we used to do back in the early ’90s and some of my newer compositions that Chris and Brian actually haven’t played,” Martin says. “They’re a very closeknit and dynamic rhythm section,” he says. “I’m just very excited to see how they’re going to play this music.” It’s a good bet that the trio’s 2018 edition will be must listening. “I think that there’ll be elements that are diferent,” Martin says. “But the foundation of who we are as musicians is the same, so it’s not going to sound like a totally diferent trio.”

other main characters, she adds, are still in their 20s. Surprised? Maybe that’s because all three are such great roles in such a famous play that they’ve acquired a luster, a kind of stature. Plus, older actors have sometimes played them. But that’s not what Williams had in mind, says Houk, founder and artistic director of Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis. Neither do she and “Streetcar” director Tim Ocel. At their first meeting, they agreed to “cast young” for the production at the Grandel Theatre. With Sophia Brown as Blanche, Lana Dvorak as Stella, Nick Narcisi as Stanley and Spencer Sickmann as Mitch, they achieved that goal. Youth “adds a charge to the material,” Houk says. “And I think it adds to the pathos if Blanche is so beaten-down, so broken, so crushed at such a young age.” A newly unemployed teacher whose hard life has fallen short of her romantic, Southern-belle dreams, Blanche comes to stay with her sister and brother-in-law in New Orleans’ French Quarter, hoping for peace and perhaps a fresh start. She finds neither. This year’s festival is smaller than in past years, Houk says, with fewer events. But in another sense, it’s bigger. “‘Streetcar’ is the biggest play we have ever done, and the Grandel is the biggest venue we have ever used,” she says. “We didn’t want to dilute that.” Plunging into a French Quarter spirit, the festival gets underway at 5:30 p.m.

WISH LIST What bands will show up on the LouFest lineup this year? Our music critic has some educated guesses. Sunday in A&E

Thursday with a New Orleans-style parade, led by Harvey Lockhart and the Point of View Jazz Ensemble, that starts and ends at the theater’s steps. “Streetcar” — directed by Ocel and boasting an original score by St. Louis performer and composer Henry Palkes — opens at 7:30 p.m. For a complete list of “Steetcar” performances, visit twstl.org. “Tennessee Rising,” Jacob Storms’ one-man show about the playwright, opens at 8 p.m. May 11 at the nearby .ZACK. Two panel discussions will be presented back-to-back at the Grandel on May 12. David Kaplan, curator and co-founder of the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival, will moderate a 10 a.m. panel: “Tennessee Williams: The French Quarter Years.” Washington University professor Henry Schvey will lead a discussion on “Streetcar” at 11 a.m. The Dark Room, a club and gallery in the Grandel lobby, will ofer jazz after every evening show. If that sounds good, you might really enjoy the jazz brunch at the Dark Room at 11 a.m. May 13, before the “Streetcar” matinee. There will be no performances May 18. At 11 a.m. May 19, Thomas Mitchell, a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will introduce a staged reading of “Interior: Panic,” Williams’ little-known one-act play that developed into “Streetcar.” It will be presented on the “Streetcar” set at the Grandel. The festival concludes May 19 after the 3 p.m. matinee of “Streetcar,” when actor Ben Nordstrom hosts the festival’s annual finale, the “Stella Shouting Contest” outdoors.

Customers throw axes at targets at the Axe House in Valley Park.

“We’re going to be throwing axes today, not catching them,” Axe House co-owner Tina Flower tells a couple who have just walked in the door with their two teenagers. “That was last weekend.” They nod silently. Undaunted, Flower continues her introductory spiel with the gusto of someone without an ax to grind. Ahem. She checks the family’s waivers and reminds them to stay behind the long

wooden counter while they are waiting to throw. Flower directs them to their lane, two side-by-side wooden targets sandwiched between a boisterous birthday party and a kickball team enjoying some ofseason bonding. There are 18 lanes at the Axe House, and on a recent Sunday afternoon, axes — and occasionally knives and ninja stars — are flying through all of them. “The first month we opened, it was

crickets. Then we just kind of exploded overnight,” Flower says. She and her co-owner, Jef Lofquist, opened the Axe House of Highway 141 and Marshall Road last October after discovering the burgeoning sport during a trip to Las Vegas. According

to the World Axe Throwing League, there are more than 40 sanctioned facilities in Canada and the U.S., including the Axe House and STL Axe Throwing in St. Charles and Top Notch Axe Throwing downtown. The business was a bit of a pivot for Flower, who had been working for a software company, and Lofquist, a firefighter in Kirkwood. “We learned mostly through trial and error,” Lofquist says. “We have steadily grown every month, through a lot of word of mouth. Probably the biggest surprise for me is there isn’t a ‘typical’ visitor.” They have had enough interest to start a competitive league, which follows the guidelines of the world governing body. Adam Lang got a taste of the sport last fall when the Axe House brought a portable target to a function at his company. He and his wife, Gwendolyn, ended up joining the weekly league, even investing in their own personal set of axes. The couple used to play volleyball together until Gwendolyn Lang injured her knee. “It’s tough being stationary,” she says. “This gave me something that had a competitive edge. “It’s something that anyone can do. The hardest part is finding your swing — it’s like darts, finding your groove.”

said than done. The e tossed from a distance of ideally giving the blade ate 1½ times before strikticking in — the bullseye.

Each member of the group gets side-by-side instruction from Stine, but the axes are not having it. They thud against the board, splintering the targets. Wood chips accumulate in a mound on the floor. Kevin Jones launches the 20-ounce ax, and it momentarily sticks before dropping in defeat into the shavings. “I’m going to at least cause a lot of damage,” Jones says. The targets at the Axe House do take a beating. Planks of plywood are aixed to the wall for each 4-foot-by4-foot square. A red dot marks the

bull’s-eye, dead center of four concentric circles. It takes just an hour or two for experienced throwers to decimate the board. In an average week, the Axe House goes through about 120 targets, Stine says. The used boards are donated to a homeless shelter for firewood. Back at the Erbs-Jones lane, the group has had a taste of success. Jones has even captured his wife’s inaugural hit on video, to be shared later on social media. But Greta Erbs is struggling. “It’s the not bending the arm that’s hard,” she says. Her tosses dive before they reach the target. She’s the only one in the group yet to get an ax to stick. Kevin Jones shares his strategy: “Just get mad at it!” She does. It sticks. A bellow erupts from the group, momentarily overtaking both the background music and the clangs and thunks that echo from other lanes. And for those who really do have some anger to work through, Flower, the co-owner, says the Axe House is more than willing to add a photo to the target, a motivator that’s been done for a few “divorce parties.” She does not, however, endorse an idea from the ax-throwing kickball team, who are playfully threatening one of their teammates. “We’re going to put Joe up there with an apple on his head,” one of the players says. It’s time to bury the hatchet, team.

TIPS FOR AX-THROWING SUCCESS “It takes a little bit of time to get the mechanics down,” says Aaron Cockrell, the owner of STL Axe Throwing in St. Charles, which opened in March 2017. He calls his employees “axeperts” and says he has never had a visitor not get an ax to stick. According to Cockrell, there are three keys to executing a good throw: 1. Keep your body and the ax straight. 2. Find the proper distance from the target. 3. Maintain a strong follow-through. Like anything else, “the more you practice, the better you are,” he says.

CORNHOLE Toss a bag of corn (or beans) at a hole in a board — that’s it. Get three points for a bag in the hole, one point for a bag on the platform and play up to 21 points. The game saw a modern resurgence in Chicago and Cincinnati; it’s now so popular that championships are covered by ESPN, and custommade cornhole boards are popular wedding gifts. Jason Helferstay runs Jay’s Cornhole in Fenton. He started playing as a hobby, and when he worked as a tire salesman, he entertained clients by playing at bars. “The appeal of it is, it’s kinda like horseshoes to some extent, but it’s less

dangerous to play, and it’s more versatile. If you get hit in the head with one of these, you’re fine.” He points out that you can hold a beer in one hand and a bag in the other, and you can even play in a wheelchair. His playing tip? “It’s basically having a lot of patience and a lot of air time. A lot of folks will try to throw them straight. It really needs a lot of airtime to land on the board straight.

You don’t want the bag to skid of the boards.” WASHERS Nobody really knows when and how washers started, and variants of the game are played all over the country and around the world. In short, players take turns tossing metal washers into square boxes with a pipe or can in the middle. Like cornhole, a player gets three points for making the cup and one point for the box, and

HORSESHOES Many locals may not know that Wentzville is the home to the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association Hall of Fame and Museum, where visitors not only can try their hand at pitching horseshoes, but they also can learn all about the game’s history (it dates to the second century) and its champions. Players throw “ringers,” a horseshoe that encircles the stake, or count which horseshoe is nearest the stake. Jeanette “J-Net” Claas, 77, of St. Charles, recently resigned as the president of the Quail Ridge Horseshoe Club and doesn’t play anymore because of back

issues. Still, she spends a lot of time at the club and at tournaments because she enjoys the people. She started playing in the backyard about 27 years ago. It’s an inexpensive sport that players of any age can enjoy, she says. Players should release their shoe at eye level and keep track of their ringer percentage; Claas’ overall percentage was up around 60 percent, meaning six out of 10 throws were ringers. Competition is usually friendly, she says. “It’s like any other sport: You get involved in it; it becomes like a family. It’s just not a beer-drinking sport. In fact, the better you get, the less you drink,” she says, laughing. BOCCE Serious bocce players want to teach you one important thing first: It’s pronounced BOH-chay, not BOTCH-ee. Tony Sanna, president of the St. Louis Bocce Club in the Hill neighborhood, jokes that when people pronounce it the other

way, he figures they’re from the North, maybe the Boston area, where they drive “cahs.” He’s OK with it — bocce is a social, family-oriented sport, and players are willing to teach others. Basically, players take turns throwing larger balls and a smaller, target ball called a pallino. Players toss the larger balls and try to get it closest to the pallino. Sanna, 66, of the Afton area, has been playing since the 1970s. He says he sees players as young as 3 years old and players as old as their mid-90s. It’s not a strenuous game, he points out, and anyone can play. He says its popularity seems to be growing, with some local country clubs installing courts. The St. Louis Bocce Club will host the United States Bocce Federation championship in June. His tip? “Don’t overthrow while playing, and just concentrate. Which is true of most games.” BY VALERIE SCHREMP HAHN

Bocce is played with eight bocce balls and one pallino ball, the small, white one.

you play to 21 points. Mike Spangler and his son, Chris, of Barnhart have won the World Washers Championship in St. Louis twice. Mike Spangler, 70, has been playing about 15 years. “It’s a lot of practice, and just mainly keep your arm straight,” he said. He said tournaments often have boxes of diferent sizes or at diferent distances. “When we go to a tournament, I have to practice about 20 minutes to get the distance down,” he says. Spangler says he enjoys meeting new players, and it’s possible to win a lot of money and prizes at tournaments. “You have to be on your toes,” he says. “Any given day, you can be beat. There’s a little luck in it, but most of it is skill. You play outside, and a lot of the time, if the wind’s blowing, anybody can win,” he says, laughing. “Even the worst person can win.”

Mackenzie Davis, a star on the rise, is right at home in ‘Tully’ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

M

ackenzie Davis is perhaps best known for her roles in the television series “Halt and Catch Fire” and the Emmywinning “San Junipero” episode of Netlix’s “Black Mirror.” But she has also appeared in ilms including “Smashed,” “The Martian” and “Blade Runner 2049.” Davis, 31, has her biggest movie role yet as Tully, a night nanny who’s a godsend for frazzled mom Marlo (Charlize Theron). Recently, Davis — who was born and grew up in Vancouver — spoke with Go! Magazine about “Tully” and her career. Q • Tully turns out not to be the person we assume she is throughout most of the ilm. Was that a particular acting challenge for you? A • Diablo Cody, who wrote the script, created a

20

really whole and complete character. And I felt very comfortable in the world that she created and in the character that she created. I think the majority of the focus is just on the relationship with Charlize and being as present as possible in that world and that everything else kind of took care of itself. Q • As a rising actor, was there anything you learned from Theron, who won an Oscar for her performance as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster”? A • Most of what I learned from her was just from working alongside her and watching her on the set. I’m always so impressed and relieved to ind that the actresses that we like the most are just doing the work. Charlize is an example of somebody who, despite the amazing

career that she’s had, is so focused and so curious. I learned so much just from being in a scene with her. Q • How did you become interested in acting? A • I always was. My relationship to it has probably mutated and grown and shifted over the years, but I deinitely loved performing when I was 5 years old. Being an actor was the irst thing I ever wanted to do. Q • What was it like growing up in Vancouver? A • I had a lovely childhood. We actually shot “Tully” at a house that was right around the corner from the school that I went to for 13 years. I used to walk by that house every single day. Q • You got a lot of attention for your role as Cameron Howe in “Halt and Catch Fire,” a period drama about the emerging computer industry. Howe was a genius at technology. Are you pretty tech-savvy? A • No. I’m the opposite of that.

Natassia Gorie Furber and Hamilton Morris in “Sweet Country”

‘Sweet Country’ is an Outback Western of epic proportions ★★★★ BY ALAN ZILBERMAN / SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON POST

T

here’s a scene in “Sweet Country” in which a character is shown wandering the Australian Outback, on the brink of hopelessness. At that moment, we’re expected to share that character’s despair. That’s a big demand for any audience, but in this case, director Warwick Thornton (“Samson and Delilah”) earns that response, combining sensitive direction with strong performances and unlinching visuals to create a Western of epic proportions. Though set in 1920s Australia, the tale has a moral force beyond time and place. Events are set in motion by Harry (Ewen Leslie), an embittered, racist World War I veteran who asks his preacher neighbor, Fred (Sam Neill), if he can borrow the services of a laborer for help on his ranch. That laborer,

Sam (Hamilton Morris), is aboriginal; Fred treats him with respect, insisting they are equals, so the man of God balks at helping someone who does not share his views. Eventually, Fred agrees, sending Sam to the ranch with Sam’s wife and niece. After an alcohol-fueled act of violence by Harry, Sam shoots Harry in self-defense, then lees. “Sweet Country” is concerned with the fallout of that violence. Seen through Thornton’s lens, the Outback is a more pitiless landscape than the American West, yet he frames it elegantly, as if to show why settlers might have been drawn there. His direction also includes a technique that is startling, even bizarre: After shooting from one character’s perspective, he then jump-cuts forward in time. Although it is

not always clear whether these future events are actual or imaginary, the efect is powerful, showing us how unspoken prejudice infects this loose community of ranchers and lawmen. Bryan Brown, the veteran Australian character actor, plays one of those lawmen, in a role that recalls his appearance in the 1980 Australian classic “Breaker Morant,” which also deals with the question of real-world justice. This shrewdly observed story asks another question: Is civilization possible in a nation where discrimination has such deep roots? In “Sweet Country,” the answer arrives with a tough fatalism. If the movie’s outlook is less than hopeful, it nevertheless suggests that there is still time to learn from our mistakes.

he king is dead. Long live Shuri? One of the most shocking moments of “Avengers: Infinity War” was when Thanos snapped his fingers and half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe began to fade away. At that point, it was a guessing game as to who would remain and who would cease to exist. Perhaps the most jaw-dropping death of the multiple Marvel heroes was the newest cultural phenomenon, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). There are probably very few who

believe we’ve seen the last of T’Challa: There’s just too much money to be made in Wakanda. But the Black Panther turning into dust in this film opens the door for the idea of Shuri (Letitia Wright) becoming the next Black Panther. It all depends on how Wakanda responds to their king’s disappearance in Part 2 of “Infinity War,” which arrives in theaters next May. Can they still rule without a Black Panther reigning supreme? “Captain America: Civil War” and “Black Panther” both confirmed that the passing of the throne was immediate when T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka,

was killed in a terrorist attack (in “Civil War”). T’Challa was handed the throne in “Black Panther” after surviving his lone challenge through combat with M’Baku. Maybe “Infinity War” won’t have the time to dive into Princess Shuri’s potential new status and will instead use her, along with the other super-genius left, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), as a key player without the cat costume. Or maybe Shuri gets the throne in a unanimous, emergency vote. T’Challa’s disappearance/death is an opportunity to dive into one of the most recent additions to the Black Panther’s lore. Shuri, who was created by Reginald Hudlin and John Romita Jr., first appeared in a Marvel comic book in 2005. She’s most known in those circles for eventually becoming a female Black Panther when T’Challa — stop me if this sounds familiar — was presumed dead.

It’s worth noting whether such a big change will be made under the direction of the Russo brothers (who are handling the “Infinity War” films) or Ryan Coogler, the director and co-writer of the extremely successful “Black Panther,” who has certainly earned the right to decide what bold moves happen next with the character. If Shuri does get the new panther duds, there could possibly be two Black Panthers in the next Avengers sequel (if T’Challa returns from the grave like many assume he will). And that would make things interesting for future stand-alone “Black Panther” sequels, too. Whatever happens, Shuri will play a major role regardless as one of the few heroes left after Thanos’ snap decision. The “Wakanda forever” chant will live on — we’ll just have to wait and see who’s leading the charge.

“THE MOST DIFFICULT THING FOR ME WAS TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN IRONY AND RESPECT, RESPECT OF THE CHARACTERS AND RESPECT OF THE STORIES, BUT ALSO THE DISTANCE AND THE COMEDY I WANTED TO BRING INTO IT.” DIRECTOR MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS

But the strange thing is, it was the same all over the world.

Depicting a hero Q&A How ilmmaking, romance and the politics of 1968

collide in Michel Hazanavicius’ ‘Godard Mon Amour’

BY MARK OLSEN / LOS ANGELES TIMES

ew captured the cultural tumult and pace of change in the 1960s quite like French filmmaker JeanLuc Godard. From his epochal debut “Breathless” through films such as “Masculine Feminine,” “Contempt” and “Weekend,” he explored how the political and social climate impacted dynamics between men and women. With his new “Godard Mon Amour,” Michel Hazanavicius, an Oscar winner for “The Artist,” has adapted a memoir by Anne Wiazemsky, the actress who married Godard in 1967 after appearing in his “La Chinoise.” That film both celebrated and critiqued the student protest movements of the time, as the

F 22

couple would in real life be swept up in the protests, conflicts and quest for liberation of May 1968 in Paris. Hazanavicius depicts Godard at a moment of crisis and transition, as he takes inspiration from the politically charged times in an attempt to create a more radical and revolutionary filmmaking practice. Yet the film also seeks to humanize Godard the director by capturing the strain on his relationship with Wiazemsky. Louis Garrel as Godard and Stacy Martin as Wiazemsky embody Hazanavicius’ unpredictable mix of romantic drama, artistic turmoil and unlikely comedy. The filmmaker sat down recently in Los Angeles to discuss his movie and the ongoing import of the era.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.04.18-05.10.18

Q • Why do you think 1968 maintains such a grasp on the popular imagination? What to you is the importance of 1968? A • I think it’s like the oicial social end of the postwar era. I would say it like this, this year, maybe because of the Vietnam War or something, the youth, the first postwar babies, they were like in their 20s or 18 and they really wanted some change in the way the world was ruled at this time. In France,

for example, the president was Gen. De Gaulle. He was a hero from World War II, and he was an old man; he was a general from the army and really, really oldfashioned. He was really disconnected to the reality of the youth. People were listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and they were fans of Bridget Bardot and Jean-Luc Godard. And he was really disconnected with that population, and they literally took to the streets to express that they were existing.

Q • What was it about “One Year After,” Wiazemsky’s memoir, that struck you and made you want adapt it into a film? A • It was a combination between the characters themselves, who they were, what happened to them, the story. There’s two books actually — one is like the rise of the love story, and the other one is the fall, the ending of that love story. And I was more attracted by the crisis, the end of the love story. And also, because it was during May

’68, it was diferent layers of crisis. Jean-Luc Godard was almost 40, and I think he was in a kind of midlife crisis. This couple was in a crisis, his artistic life was in a crisis, and Paris and France was in a huge crisis as well. So for a writer it’s very exciting, all these layers and levels of crisis. Q • Was it a challenge just re-creating the period? You restage some of the May 1968 protest riots in Paris and also have the challenge of re-staging some of Godard’s own films, “La Chinoise” in particular. Was that diicult? A • There is nothing easy when you make a movie. This was particularly diicult because I had 700 extras in the actual streets where things happened for real. The most diicult thing for me was trying to find the right balance between irony and respect, respect of the characters and respect of the stories, but also the distance and the comedy I wanted to bring into it. And the attraction and aversion for the character. All the movie is

hat a diference an actor makes. Writer-director Michel Hazanavicius — who won a best director Academy Award for “The Artist” (2011), which was also named best picture — returns to the subject of the cinema with “Godard Mon Amour,” a biographical ilm about the admittedly diicult, Nouvelle Vague titan Jean-Luc Godard (“Breathless,” “Contempt,” “Alphaville”), and the result is a dud. A large part of the problem is casting. Based on the 2015 memoir by Anne Wiazemsky, Godard’s muse, wife and star of his controversial 1967 ilm “La Chinoise,” “Godard Mon Amour” stars an uncharismatic and boorish Louis Garrel (“The Dreamers”). Compounding the problem is the casting of Stacy Martin, who was previously the young Anne in Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” ilms, the granddaughter of Nobel Prize-winning author Francois Mauriac. Martin registers as a blank face and often nude body, while Godard mostly wears his signature suits and tinted eyeglasses. The ilm charts the erosion of their marriage at a time when Godard was becoming increasingly politicized, as well as mean and cruel, beginning during the Paris riots of May 1968. Hazanavicius occasionally apes Godard’s political ilming technique, inserting slogans spoken or written on the screen.

about this. It’s not a statue erected to the great Jean-Luc Godard, not at all, but it’s also not a trial, it’s not a judgment. So I had to ind that right balance between positive parts and negative parts, and that was the most challenging. The rest was more traditional diiculties. Q • Anne Wiazemsky was at the ilm’s premiere last year at Cannes but died in October of cancer. What does it mean to you that she was able

to see the movie? A • She was one of the irst people to see the movie. It was before the end of the cutting, not the irst cut but maybe I had two weeks left. If something was really wrong I could ix it. And she saw the movie and she was really moved, deeply moved by the movie. She really loved it, and she really recognized Godard. And so it was a relief for me. I knew in a way I betrayed the book, but you have to when you make a movie. A movie

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

is not a book, you don’t copy the book, you have to ind your own way to tell the same story or to ind the same level. I put in a lot of funny things, jokes in the movie, and she liked it. She didn’t ask for any kind of change or anything. And yes, it was very intense when she went to Cannes. I didn’t know it, but she knew she was sick, and she passed like a few months later. For her, because she was an actress, to come back to the Cannes festival with that movie telling her own story based on

a book she had written, it was really moving. I’m very happy having shared this with her. Q • You’ve been asked many times if you’ve had any kind of response from JeanLuc Godard himself, and it’s funny that his unresponsiveness seemed like the ultimate Godardian statement. But now maybe his statement is the fact that one year after your ilm was at Cannes in the competition, this year he has a new ilm at

Cannes in competition. A • Maybe. You can love him or hate him or whatever, or you don’t care, like many people, but he’s a free man. And that’s something you only can respect. And even in my movie, even if I make fun of him, I try to portray him as a hero as well. Because what he does is heroic, in a way. He decided to do something against everything and against everyone, and he does what he decided to do, which is what heroes do.

Billie-Jean is Robinson’s smallest restaurant yet — which, if you’ve ever squeezed yourself into Bar Les Frères, you know is saying something. The shotgun space seats 32, bar included. Dining tables line one wall, with a single cushy booth at the rear. The bar seats face not only the bar but also the tiny open kitchen. The main design element is the color black: black walls, black ceiling, black banquette, a dramatic decision both contrasted and further deepened by framed black-on-white Robert Motherwell prints and black-and-white Harry Benson (and one Helmut Newton) photographs. There is exactly one restaurateur who could pull of this look, and it’s Zoë Robinson. Unlike I Fratellini and Bar Les Frères,

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU Robust Wine Bar closed its downtown location at 635 Washington Avenue after service April 28, owners Stanley and Arlene Browne said. The original Webster Groves location of Robust and its 2017 Lindenwood Park spinof, Snax Gastrobar, remain open. (Robust closed an Edwardsville location in 2015.) The downtown Robust opened in late 2012, part of the irst wave of restaurants at the Mercantile Exchange. Arlene Browne says she and her husband had noticed a decline in large-convention traic, which led to their decision to close. When Robust irst opened, she says, “We had a lot of conventions on the books. Shortly after that, things began to decline. We really wanted to make an impact on downtown business and wanted to see its resurgence and growth. We think it will happen soon. We just don’t know when.” BY IAN FROEB


Dumpling soup at Billie-Jean

the name Billie-Jean tells you nothing about the menu. Robinson told me during a phone interview that when she and Vongsaly began planning the menu, the ideas “just started pouring out of us, like writing.” It is, she said, “a culmination of what we’ve done.” That culmination feels as fresh as any cooking in town, seamlessly fusing contemporary trends, classic continental cuisine and the Southeast-Asian pantry favored by Vongsaly, who came to the United States as a refugee from Laos. It isn’t a fusion restaurant in the sense that the term has become a cliché. Rather, the menu reads as a personal statement from a restaurateur and chef who have come to know and trust each other and want to share dishes they think are good. And they are good. Consider the crudo ($16), a dish that has become so prevalent that my eyes tend to read right past it on the menu. Here, Vongsaly sits slivers of gorgeous yellowfin tuna in a pool of lime juice and fish sauce and garnishes the fish with fresno chile and a tangle of cilantro, mint and Thai basil. The basil’s lico-

rice bite is electric on the palate, while the fish sauce gives the fish’s bright sweetness a lasting depth. A similar approach benefits the whole roasted snapper ($36), with a makrut-lime leaf, red-wine vinegar and cilantro-based salsa-verde providing bracing accents to the perfectly flaky fish. Vongsaly and his team are equally adept with an elegant roasted quail ($34) with a cornbread, golden-raisin and pine-nut stuing and a honking

The main design element in Billie-Jean is the color black.

beef short rib ($30), braised and served on the bone, the fork-tender meat amped up with a horseradish-citrus gremolata. (The gremolata is an especially deft move, providing texture, acid and heat without fussying up the primal presentation.) The kitchen can do timeless simplicity: The addictive scallion pancakes served as a complimentary starter; crisp squares of firm tofu over sesamelacquered Japanese eggplant ($12); the

crisp spring rolls fat with duck confit and cellophane noodles with a sweetchile dipping sauce ($12). A soup with plump pork-shrimp dumplings in a chicken and beef broth shot through with the summery flavors of lemon grass and makrut lime (generous serving $13, really generous $18) will become your go-to comfort dish in cold or warm weather. The kitchen can also swing with the seasons, topping a flatbread pizza ($24) on my April visits with first-of-theseason ramps and morel mushrooms as well as Parmigiano-Reggiano, Pecorino Romano and Gorgonzola and a drizzle of raw honey. This was the one dish that needed tweaking. The ramps and honey couldn’t counter all that umami and funk. A shot of chile heat might have done the trick. The menu isn’t long, but given the kitchen’s small size — on my visits, only two cooks were working in a space that maybe could have accommodated 2.25 cooks — its range and execution are impressive. The beverage program is also compact, with an emphasis on cocktails (mostly not-too-crazy rifs on classic drinks) and a tightly curated selection of wines. The dessert menu is brief enough that there isn’t a printed copy. As my eyes glaze at crudo, my ears develop tinnitus at the mention of crème brulee ($12), but Vongsaly enlivens this tired dessert by infusing the custard with the flavor of cofee and topping its surface with Chantilly cream flavored with condensed milk, a delightful tribute to Vietnamese iced cofee. It’s dessert and the accompanying cofee in one, and in another lifetime you might have been tempted to pair this and your after-dinner flush with a cigarette. Dessert proved me wrong on crème brulee. Billie-Jean proved me wrong on Robinson and Vongsaly. Not only did they have one more great restaurant in them, but they had their best restaurant yet.

SMALL BITES

Will Poke Doke your way be OK? It may BY IAN FROEB / IFROEB@POST-DISAPTCH.COM

P

oke Doke, which opened in October in the Central West End, is a diicult restaurant to review. It isn’t a poke restaurant so much as a poke-trend restaurant. You can eat here without knowing anything about the raw-fish salad’s Hawaiian origin, and what you eat here might barely resemble anything a Hawaiian would consider poke. It might barely resemble what the person sitting next you at Poke Doke is eating. Poke Doke’s main feature is customization. You work your way along the fast-casual counter, choosing a base (rice, salad, soba noodles, chips), a protein (ahi tuna, salmon, spicy tuna, shrimp, octopus,

tofu), whether you want thin slices of cucumber and onion and which level of heat you prefer (mild, medium or spicy, determined by spoonfuls of minced jalapeño). You’re not done choosing, but I should add that when you pick your protein, you also pick a size, measured by ice-cream-size scoops: small (two for $10), regular (three for $12) or large (four for $14). If you want, you can mix and match the scoops (e.g., a regular order with two scoops of ahi tuna and one of shrimp). OK. Back to choosing. Your bowl gets doused in Poke Doke’s poke sauce (a blend of soy sauce, sesame oil and “secret” ingredients), and then you can add one or all

of the many available toppings: green onion, mango, ginger, edamame, seaweed salad and crab meat, to name a few. All of these except for avocado and kimchi are included in the cost of your bowl; those two are $1 extra. Finally, you choose a “drizzle” (e.g., spicy mayo, sweet chile sauce, gochujang). The number of possible combinations are more than this English major can compute. I can only make some general observations: • The raw ahi tuna and salmon are fine. They might not knock your favorite spot for nigiri or sashimi of its perch, but each conveys a clean sweetness. • In general, the ingredients (fresh and prepared) were of good quality. • The spice level wasn’t tamped down. “Spicy” was indeed spicy, and combined with a generous “drizzle” of gochujang made for a brow-dampening bowl. • I was hungry much sooner after my lunches here than I usually am after lunch. Which I guess gives me more chances to work through Poke Doke’s seemingly endless combinations.

2019 Buick Envision

DRIVING WITH DAN By DAN WIESE Contributing Automotive Writer

More stuff, lower price highlight facelift Although Buick's compact Envision crossover has been revised for 2019 with what GM calls "customer driven" updates, the change most observers are likely to appreciate most -- and the one they can drive to the bank -- is its price. The 2019 Envision, which now boasts more equipment, is . . . wait for it . . . notably less expensive. More stuff, less dough. Cool. A base 2019 front-drive Envision boasts a sticker price of $32,990. A base 2018 model is $34,990. Cha-ching! The trend holds true throughout the ivetrim line, with prices, depending on model, down anywhere from $1,360 to $2,370. Tri-shield fans will like the sound of that. They also will like the sound of this: Envision's 2.0-liter turbo four has been retuned for more torque and, in another major drivetrain upgrade, it's now managed by a nine-speed automatic, trumping the outgoing six-speed transmission by three cogs. Slotted between the full-size, three-row Buick Enclave and the tiny Buick Encore, ive-passenger Envision crossover is offered in base, Preferred, Essence, Premium and Premium II trims. For 2019, Envision offers as its base powertrain a carried-over 2.5-liter, naturally aspirated I-4 that still makes 197 hp and 192 lb.-ft. of twist. And, as before, it continues to be managed by a six-speed automatic transmission capable of channeling power to the front wheels or, if the all-wheel-drive option is checked, all four. However, the Premium trims' turbo-four upgrade, though continuing to corral 252 horses, now generates 295 lb.-ft. of grunt -- 35 more than before. And every turbo-equipped Envision is endowed with standard all-wheel drive that's paired with the new nine-speed

a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and a limited trial of OnStar. Look for the new Envision to arrive in Buick showrooms by the end of May.

transmission. Buick igures the 2019 turbo Envision will greet 60 mph in the mid 6's -- roughly half a second quicker than before. Regarding styling changes, this crossover is all but unchanged in its exterior dimensions, with those few changes measured in tenths of an inch. Regarding cosmetic alterations, you'll have to be a real Envision-phile to spot them. They include a new winged-grille motif that's become a Buick trademark, along with altered headlights -- HIDs on naturally aspirated mod-

els, LEDs on blown Envisions -- and taillights that have been redrawn. Inside, Envision adds several nifty new features, not least of which is the ability to disable the engine's fuel-saving auto stop/start function -- a irst for Buick in North America and, though common in the industry, still rare among GM vehicles. Additional upgrades include seat heaters, a new air ionizer for the HVAC system and a double-duty cruise control system -- both standard cruise and vehicle-ahead-tracking "intelligent" cruise are now onboard for use at the driver's discretion. Finally, every Envision comes equipped with an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility,

Reader wants an SUV, wonders about turbo engines DEAR CAR TALK: Dear Car Talk: I like to drive small SUVs and want to get a new one. It seems like most of the engine offerings are turbo models (better gas mileage for the government). Are turbos reliable for the long term (120,000-plus miles)? I heard that they require special maintenance, like cool-down periods after a hard drive, but my mechanic says they resolved that issue. Have they? Are they still expensive to repair? Would you recommend them? -- Doug

bos ininitely more reliable. We’ve seen very few turbo failures lately. Thank goodness my kids have already graduated. Almost every manufacturer is using turbos now. And they’re doing exactly what they promise to do: They provide more power from a smaller engine, reducing weight and, therefore, increasing fuel economy. Will a turbo you buy today go 120,000 miles? Probably. It could go 220,000 miles. But like any mechanical part of an engine, there’s no guarantee. And any major engine component -- a cylinder head, a timing chain

or a turbo -- will be expensive to repair if it does fail. So if you’re uncomfortable with the idea, don’t get one. But I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a car or small SUV with a turbo these days, Doug. *** Bumps and potholes do more than merely annoy drivers.

DEAR DOUG: Yes, yes, yes and yes. A turbocharger is a turbine fan powered by the car’s escaping exhaust gases. When the exhaust gases blow past the turbo, it spins at a ridiculously high speed and forces fresh air into the cylinders. That increases power, but increases fuel consumption only while you’re demanding that power — rather than all the time, as a larger engine would. In the early days of turbos, they tended to last about 75,000 miles before failing in a dramatic cloud of black smoke. That was great for those of us in the repair business, and helped me put my kids through college. Turbos usually failed, because they ran so hot that oil would get dried up in the small oil passages and eventually constrict those passages and prevent the turbo from being lubricated. That’s why it was recommended that, after a hard drive, you allow the turbo to cool down before shutting off the engine. But your mechanic is right that that’s no longer recommended, nor necessary. Both turbos and oils (particularly synthetic oils) are a lot better now, making tur05

When right-hand opponent’s bid shows two specific suits, a bid of the lower ranking of those two suits shows a good hand with the lower of the two remaining suits. A bid in the higher ranking suit shows a good hand with the higher of the other two suits. Hence, North’s two heart bid showed clubs. South’s four spade cue bid en-

couraged North, a player who didn’t need much encouragement, to jump to slam. There were only 11 tricks, but the knowledge that West was at least 5-5 in the majors gave South some ideas. Declarer won the opening heart lead in hand and ruffed a heart. A club to his ace revealed the club position. South cashed dummy’s ace and king of diamonds, followed by the king of clubs and a club to his queen, drawing East’s trumps. South cashed the queen of diamonds, discarding a spade from dummy, and rufed his last diamond on the table. He had now eliminated all of the red cards from both his hand and the dummy. Declarer now led dummy’s spade and elegantly ducked when East played the nine! The defenders were helpless. Should East’s nine hold the trick, he would have to lead a heart and yield a ruf-sluf. West could overtake the nine, of course, but the only way for him to avoid giving a rufsluf would be to lead a spade back into South’s ace-queen. A pretty hand! (05/04/18)

DEAR ABBY

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

Husband’s wardrobe is too casual

Dear Likes • I wish you had mentioned how long you and your

husband have been married, because over the last 40 years styles have changed. People of both sexes dress much more casually. Your husband may have dressed more formally years ago because there was a dress code at work and it was expected with the crowd with whom you socialized or the places you went. At this point, he may feel that because he’s retired he has earned the right to dress “comfortably.” Yes, you are wrong to be embarrassed. What is important is how your husband feels about himself. How he presents himself is a reflection only on him — not you. You might suggest a shopping trip so the two of you can update those jeans and sneakers. Dear Abby • My significant other and I have five children between us. He has a son and daughter from a previous marriage, I have a daughter from a previous relationship, and we have two daughters together. I love all our children equally, but my significant other com-

plains nonstop about my daughter from the previous relationship. He nags about every little thing she does, which he never does with his own children. I have talked to him many times about the favoritism he shows toward his kids over my daughter. How can I get him to treat all of the children equally? — EQUALLY CONFUSED IN TEXAS Dear Equally Confused • Children aren’t stupid. In fact, they are very perceptive. I’m sure your daughter recognizes that the man her mother lives with doesn’t like her and treats her diferently. If you can’t get through to him that what he’s doing is unfair and damaging to your child, and that he needs to tone it down, then explain to her the reason why it’s happening. And if necessary, enlist the help of a licensed family therapist to change the dynamic. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Diferences: 1. Light is wider. 2. Phone is smaller. 3. Nose is smaller. 4. Flower is moved. 5. Chair is not as wide. 6. Hat is larger.

Dear Abby • When I met my husband, he dressed impeccably — suits, sharp sport coats, monogrammed shirts, freshly pressed dress slacks, top-of-theline leather shoes. Even when we went out with friends for a casual night or a movie, he still dressed well in current, fashionable clothing. I fell in love with a man who dressed beautifully. Now that he’s retired, his jeans always look dingy (they’re not dirty; they just look like they are), his sneakers look worn, and he just doesn’t care about his appearance like he once did. When we go out together, I’m embarrassed. I love the man who used to care about his appearance, not this retired, sloppy-looking guy. If I complain, he tells me I’m being ridiculous. I don’t expect him to look like he once did (oice attire), but he should at least look current, crisp and clean. Am I wrong to be embarrassed? — LIKES THE OLD LOOK

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Enduring rude comments for party

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

Dear Miss Manners • My son’s daughter’s mother (they never married) invited my family to my granddaughter’s second birthday dinner at her apartment. I do not want to attend, due to cruel and harsh words she has said to my son. My son has paid child support (more than asked) and has been an attentive father to his daughter. I don’t wish to be in the same environment with someone who calls my son “sperm donor” in public. Gentle Reader • That does sound unpleasant. However, the prospect of rarely seeing your granddaughter would likely be more so. Miss Manners fears that if you turn down the invitation, that may be the result. Go to the party and be pleasant. The reward will be witnessing your granddaughter’s birthday and being a full participant in her

life — and maybe even modeling good behavior in the face of bad, for her mother. Dear Miss Manners • When paying at the store, if I have a full basket and the person behind me has only one item, I usually let them check out first. I do my shopping in my downtime, so a couple more minutes is no big deal for me, and it saves them waiting for just a can of soda or a loaf of bread. So that’s fine. However, sometimes, after having given up my turn, another customer will arrive behind me with just one item, as well. I feel slightly bad if I don’t let them go ahead too, having done just that for the previous person in the exact same situation. At the same time, having already given up my turn once, I’m feeling less inclined to do so again. To be clear, I’m not talking about people trying to cut in line

without asking. Those I have no qualms dealing with! But having treated one person one way, it doesn’t seem right to treat the second one differently. Depending on my mood that day, I either step aside again, or I pretend not to notice the second comer. I know I’m totally overthinking this, but it bugs me a little whenever it happens. Gentle Reader • Your impulse is generous but not required. Surely, no reasonable person would expect you to continually step aside and give up your place in line for a whole afternoon. Miss Manners suggests that you take the route of pretending not to notice — and try to stop feeling bad about it. Send questions to Miss Manners, aka Judith Martin, on her website, missmanners.com; to her email, dearmissmanners@gmail.com; or through postal mail to Miss Manners, Universal Uclick, 1130 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Mo. 64106.

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Muscle aches, not joint pain, are statin side efect FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • I am a 69-year-old white male. I take one 20mg pravastatin per day to manage my cholesterol. One of the side effects is joint pain. Are you aware of a substitute that does not have this joint pain side efect? — H.L.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • Statins are one of the most common medicines used, and although they have relatively few side efects, so many people take them that there are many reported untoward efects. Muscle aches are common. Muscle breakdown is serious and, fortunately, rare. But joint aches are not a common side effect. In the package insert, “arthritis” is listed in less than 1 percent of people. Of all the statins, pravastatin tends to have relatively few side effects. It is metabolized differently from how the others are, so have a discussion with your doctor about taking a different statin, such as atorvastatin (Lipitor). Lipitor is much more potent than pravastatin (Pravachol), so the dose you will need is likely to be much lower.

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

CORNERED • By Mike Baldwin NON SEQUITUR • By Wiley Miller

Dear Dr. Roach • I was diagnosed with prediabetes. I have had neuropathy in both feet for several years, and a “non-healing diabetic foot ulcer” on one heel for two years. The ulcer has never completely healed, and it causes some pain on occasion. Recently, I became aware of a study by a drug company in Atlanta. It appears to be developing a new treatment that shows promise. Can you tell me about the status of this treatment, and if it is available for use by the public? — J.S.

DUPLEX • By Glenn McCoy

MARMADUKE • By Brad Anderson

INTELLIGENT LIFE • By David Reddick

Answer • I think you are referring to an investigational drug called VM202, which is a gene therapy for people with diabetes and blockages in the arteries leading to a foot ulcer. The gene (DNA) codes for a protein called “human hepatocyte growth factor,” which, when taken up by muscle cells, causes them to secrete this growth factor. This, in turn, stimulates the formation of new blood vessels. Early trials were encouraging, so the drug is now in phase 3, meaning the company is running a large trial to see whether it is effective. If so, it could be a major advantage in treating this common and difficult problem. Unfortunately, many drugs fail at this stage, either because they are not effective or they have toxicities that were unrecognized in previous smaller studies. Gene therapy is a relatively new modality, so it may take longer than usual for the Food and Drug Administration to decide whether to approve this drug for general use.
