Why aren’t there better lood policies? TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Time stands still on Weber Hill. That was the sentiment Emilie Hayes posted to Twitter on Tuesday as she stood on high ground looking down at her flooded Sunset Hills home. For the second time in 16 months, the house on Weber Hill Road where she and her husband, Steve, had raised their children was almost completely under water. Christmas lights from 2015 still dangle from the gutters. The family never moved back in after the last flood. They received a flood insurance settlement, but it wasn’t enough to do what needs to be done: tear the house down and rebuild in a new location. So they lived with relatives for more than a year. They tried unsuccessfully to get either the Federal Emergency Management Agency or Sunset Hills to buy them out. Now they rent a house in the county while their old property sits as a monument to the region’s broken flood-plain development policies. Hayes is angry. She’s heartbroken. She sees a wide swath of the St. Louis region — mostly in the Meramec River watershed — devastated again after a few days of rain, and she knows something has to be done.

This can’t be the new normal. Twice in two years, Pacific, Eureka and Arnold have been under water. Twice the southwestern region of St. Louis was virtually cut off from the city as water topped Interstate 44 and part of Interstate 55. Hayes is not alone in knowing that something must be done. A climate-change-infused, waterweary nation agrees. Just a month before the water rose in St. Louis, the Pew Charitable Trusts released a nationwide survey that found 75 percent of voters support policies that would mitigate flooding, including such things as better development standards, buying out flood-prone properties and protecting wetlands and flood-plain areas that give oversaturated rivers room to roam. “The results showed overwhelming support for strong mitigation policies,” said Laura Lightbody, the project director of Pew’s Flood-Prepared Communities program. For the past couple of years, Lightbody and her colleagues at Pew have been trying to raise awareness over the direct connection between poor public policy and constant taxpayer bailouts every time a massive flood hits, whether it’s in Missouri or Texas or North Carolina. Part of the problem is a local one. Cities chasing development dollars allow building in flood plains, sometimes even encouraging it with tax incentives. They build up levees — like in Valley Park,

Chesterfield and Maryland Heights — and then when the water gets pushed somewhere else, faster and higher, well, that’s somebody else’s problem. Meanwhile, the National Flood Insurance Program is literally under water. It’s $24.8 billion in debt and set to expire by the end of September if Congress doesn’t do anything about it. This week, as much of Missouri builds towers of sandbags, Lightbody is in Kansas City along with dozens of other floodplain planners for the annual conference of the Association of Flood Plain Managers. The conferees would have done well to cancel their panel discussions and drive to St. Louis, where they could see a fragmented region offering a case study of how to mismanage flood plains. The Pew poll on voters’ attitudes toward flooding points to a path forward on some solutions to the flood problems that plague not just the St. Louis region, but plenty of other places in the country, too. Among the findings: • 64 percent of voters support the idea of local governments taking action to protect repeatedly flooded properties, including creating more wetlands in floodway areas to reduce flood risk. • 75 percent of voters approve of buyouts of repeatedly flooded properties. This isn’t an inexpensive proposition. It’s why government oicials told people like the Hayeses “no” after the last flood. But in 2016 alone, there were 2,918 “re-

petitive-loss properties” in Missouri, according to Pew’s research. These are homes or businesses that have received flood aid at least four times, and in which the total amount of that aid is more than the property is worth. That aid adds up over time. It’s why floods have become the most expensive natural disasters in the U.S. Over time, however, those mitigation investments pay of. A FEMA study that tracked buyouts in Missouri after the 1993 Missouri River flood found more than $100 million in savings by 2008 by avoiding disaster, a more than 200 percent return on investment. What does that mean today? It means a levee (Valley Park, perhaps?) might need to be lowered. It means houses behind that levee will need to be bought out. It means new development in flood plains is avoided at all costs. It means spending money now to save it later. It means (gasp) regional planning rather than all 90 municipalities in St. Louis County making decisions in a vacuum. Or, as the flood recedes, St. Louis can do what it has done so many times in the past. We can throw our hands in the air, express exasperation that there is nothing we can do, and wait for the water to rise again.

WEST FRANKFORT, ILL. • After just

more than two months on the job, former congressman and Southern Illinois University president Glenn Poshard has resigned as president of Morthland College here. Poshard said he tendered his resignation April 26 through a letter to college founder Tim Morthland, effective immediately. As for his reasons for leaving his post, Poshard read the following statement: “I believe strongly in the vision and the mission of Morthland College and the opportunity it provides in ofering students a faith-based, Christian education, however there are serious issues — both personnel and financial — of which I was not notified when I began as president, and which, I concluded, could only be resolved by an authority other than myself.” However, Leigh Caldwell, public relations and marketing director for Morthland College, said college officials were given other reasons for Poshard stepping down. “He resigned for health reasons, that is what he told us,” Caldwell said. Caldwell confirmed that an emergency meeting was called after Poshard presented the letter, during which the board asked Morthland to return as president. He accepted.

Caldwell was unsure how long Morthland would be in the position. “I am certain at some point there will be a leadership change,” she said. “I don’t know how quickly that will come.” She said the decision was quick because they needed someone to fill the leadership role. This is the last week of regular classes at Morthland with finals next week. Commencement will be May 13. “We are finishing out the semester and things are fine,” Caldwell said.

A radio reporter based in Israel, Golloher said in a lawsuit that she had complained that her New York bosses treated her poorly in comparison to male counterparts. Golloher said she was fired within 24 hours after contacting a company hotline for employee complaints. Two Fox News executives and anchor Bill O’Reilly have been ousted in recent months after accusations of harassment and discrimination at the network. Fox contends that Golloher’s contract wasn’t renewed due to budget cuts.

ST. LOUIS > Archdiocese to close two more schools •Two more Catholic schools will close in the St. Louis area, bringing the total of Catholic school closures announced this school year to five. St. Louis the King School at the Cathedral and St. Angela Merici School in Florissant will close, the Archdiocese of St. Louis announced Thursday. The schools are the latest casualties in a chronic Catholic school enrollment decline that is felt both nationwide and locally. The archdiocese said it is closing these two because they did not re-enroll many students for the upcoming school year, on top of having already low enrollment. St. Angela Merici had about 230 students this school year, according to archdiocese data. It was expected to drop to about 188 students. The closures are part of a larger re-evaluation by the archdiocese of its schools, in which the archdiocese’s Catholic education oice is seeking to assume greater and more centralized control over struggling schools and close those that lack sustainable revenue to meet expenses. St. Louis the King will cease operations at its Central West End site and will “combine” with St. Cecilia School, Most Holy Trinity School and St. Louis Catholic Academy. The four city schools make up ACCESS Academies, which follows the rigorous NativityMiguel model, which specifically serves underprivileged youth and includes a longer school day and financial and academic support from elementary school through high school. Thursday’s announcement comes on top of closures already announced since September for John F. Kennedy Catholic High School in Manchester, Our Lady of Sorrows School in south St. Louis and St. Peter School in St. Charles. (Kristen Taketa)

WEST FRANKFORT, Ill. > Poshard leaves post with private college • After just more than two months on the job, former congressman and Southern Illinois University president Glenn Poshard has resigned as president of Morthland College here. Poshard said he tendered his resignation April 26 through a letter to college founder Tim Morthland, efective immediately. As for his reasons for leaving his post, Poshard read the following statement: “I believe strongly in the vision and the mission of Morthland College Poshard and the opportunity it provides in ofering students a faithbased, Christian education, however there are serious issues — both personnel and financial — of which I was not notified when I began as president, and which, I concluded, could only be resolved by an authority other than myself.” However, Leigh Caldwell, public relations and marketing director for Morthland College, said college oicials were given other reasons for Poshard stepping down. “He resigned for health reasons, that is what he told us,” Caldwell said. Caldwell confirmed that an emergency meeting was called after Poshard presented the letter, during which the board asked Morthland to return as president. He accepted. Caldwell was unsure how long Morthland would be in the position. She said the decision was quick because they needed someone to fill the leadership role. This is the last week of regular classes at Morthland with finals next week. Commencement will be May 13. “We are finishing out the semester and things are fine,” Caldwell said.

Fox News faces new lawsuit • A former Fox News radio reporter has sued the network and its parent company, saying she was fired last month in “a blatant act of retaliation” for complaining about gender discrimination. 21st Century Fox said Thursday that Jessica Golloher’s complaints are baseless. A radio reporter based in Israel, Golloher said in a lawsuit that she had complained that her New York bosses treated her poorly in comparison to male counterparts. Golloher said she was fired within 24 hours after contacting a company hotline for employee complaints. Two Fox News executives and anchor Bill O’Reilly have been ousted in recent months after accusations of harassment and discrimination at the network. Fox contends that Golloher’s contract wasn’t renewed due to budget cuts.

Hurdles cleared, new city minimum wage takes efect Friday Opponents say it’ll drive businesses out BY KEVIN MCDERMOTT St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • The city’s new minimum

wage of $10 per hour for most jobs will take efect Friday, Mayor Lyda Krewson’s oice announced. The ordinance for the new wage — which is well above the minimum of $7.70 in the rest of Missouri and $8.25 in neighboring downstate Illinois — passed in 2015 but was held up in court until now. Under the ordinance, the wage will rise again on Jan. 1, 2018, to $11 an hour. “The City of St. Louis is mailing notices to employers and expects employers will voluntarily comply with the law,” said the statement from Krewson’s office. “Noncompliance … is subject to prosecution in Municipal Court, and also may be subject to revocation of business licenses and occupancy permit.” Information and resources, including frequently asked questions and instructions on filing a noncompliance complaint, are available at: stlouis-mo.gov/ minimum-wage. Questions also can be emailed to: minimumwage@stlouis-mo.gov. Further information is available by calling 314-589-6735. The new minimum won’t apply to businesses that gross under $500,000 a year or employ fewer than 15 workers. It doesn’t apply to employees who work less than 20 hours per calendar year. The change will put St. Louis’ minimum wage well above that of most states, and on par with many larger cities that have set their own rates. Chicago’s current rate is $10.50 an hour and is set to rise to $11 on July 1. St. Louis passed its minimum wage increase in 2015, but business groups sued, saying St. Louis shouldn’t be allowed to set a higher rate than the state rate because it would cause regulatory confusion. A St. Louis Circuit Court agreed, and approved an injunction preventing the new rate from going into efect. On appeal, the Missouri Supreme Court recently ruled in the city’s favor. With that, all that was needed to put the new minimum into effect was for the circuit court to lift its injunction, something the court announced Thursday

morning. Supporters of St. Louis’ increase say it will provide a living wage to the lowestpaid workers. “Today 35,000 St. Louis workers received a long overdue raise,” National Employment Law Project General Counsel Paul Sonn said in a statement, noting that some 40 other U.S. cities and counties have adopted local minimum wages. “The extra $1,800 a year the average St. Louis worker will earn will help tens of thousands of struggling families — and help the economy as workers spend their paychecks at local businesses.” Opponents say it will drive businesses and jobs out of the city, hurting the very workers it’s intended to help. “This move will raise labor costs up to 25 percent for some St. Louis City employers,” Missouri Chamber president and CEO Dan Mehan said in a statement. “In the short run, it will require businesses to scramble to comply with the new law. In the long run, it will cost jobs and set an already struggling St. Louis City economy even further behind.” Earlier this year, lawmakers in the Missouri House acted quickly on a proposal to nullify the minimum wage increase before the circuit court could lift the injunction. But the bill, which would require all Missouri cities to stick to the statewide standard, has stalled in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City, said he had expected the Senate to take up the measure this week, echoing concerns that a patchwork on minimum wages throughout the state would hurt local businesses. “It would be a nightmare,” Kehoe said. But the Senate hasn’t acted on any bills beyond the state budget, after a group of senators vowed on Monday to block Senate business until ethics reform is addressed. Should they take up the minimum wage bill before session ends on May 12, it’s likely to be a nonstarter with Senate Democrats, who argue cities have the right to set a living wage for their residents.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > U.S. marshal impersonator gets 3-year term • A man from Union was sentenced Thursday to three years in prison for pretending to be a deputy U.S. marshal and was ordered to repay victims of the ruse $91,000. In the brief sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in St. Louis on Thursday, Timothy Rossell Rossell, 29, said, “I would like to apologize to everyone involved in this case.” Rossell pleaded guilty in January to a felony charge of impersonating a federal agent and admitted duping two women into believing his story and supporting him inancially. One woman told investigators that Rossell persuaded her to buy a 2015 Lamborghini Gallardo and a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z6, court records show. Rossell’s ruse unraveled after the other woman found “suspicious paperwork” and counterfeit equipment, identiication, badges and apparel from the U.S. Marshals Service in October and called Union police, according to his plea and a police report. Police and real U.S. Marshals quickly learned that he was a fake. Rossell left in the Lamborghini but was caught after the car got a lat tire near Eingham, Ill. U.S. District Judge Rodney Sippel ordered Rossell’s sentence to run consecutively to a series of other charges in Missouri and Pennsylvania.

JEFFERSON CITY > Woman admits role in drug conspiracy • A California woman has admitted to participating in a conspiracy to distribute more than $6.6 million in synthetic drugs known as K2 in Missouri. Federal prosecutors say Sheila Marie Nawaz, of Roseville, Calif., pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit mail fraud from December 2012 to July 2015. Nawaz, 40, was the president of eComm Organix, Inc., a California distributor of “novelty products.” eComm Organix bought K2 from other businesses then distributed it to retail customers throughout the U.S. through the postal system. Nawaz admitted she made more than $806,000 during the scheme. eComm Organiz mailed 2,359 packages of K2 to customers in Missouri. The packages were labeled as incense, aroma therapy or potpourri. Nawaz is one of eight co-defendants who have

Woman wins talcum powder verdict St. Louis jury awards cancer patient $110.5 million in lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis Circuit

Court jury returned a $110.5 million verdict Thursday for a Virginia woman in a lawsuit claiming Johnson & Johnson’s products caused her ovarian cancer. Lois Slemp, 62, of Wise, Va., claimed her use of the company’s Shower-to-Shower and Baby Powder products over four decades as well as asbestos particles found inside her caused her cancer. Slemp, a mother of two grown

sons, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. The cancer has since spread to her liver. The verdict included $5.4 million in actual damages, and $105 million in punitive damages, said Jim Onder, an attorney for the plaintif. In a statement after the verdict, Johnson & Johnson said: “We deeply sympathize with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer. We will begin the appeals process following today’s verdict and believe a jury decision in our favor in St. Louis in March and the dismissal of two

cases in New Jersey in September 2016 by a state court judge who ruled that plaintifs’ scientific experts could not adequately support their theories that talcum powder causes ovarian cancer, further highlight the lack of credible scientific evidence behind plaintifs’ allegations. “We are preparing for additional trials this year and we will continue to defend the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder.” St. Louis jury verdicts in three cases totaled $197 million against the company last year. Last month, a St. Louis jury

found in favor of the company. About 2,000 state and federal lawsuits are pending. The trial began the first week of April; jury deliberations began Wednesday afternoon. St. Louis juries in the earlier cases found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn the public of studies linking its talccontaining products such as Shower-to-Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder to ovarian cancer. Talcum powder products contain the mineral talc that can absorb moisture and prevent chaf-

ing and rash. It is used in eye shadow, blush and some chewing gums as well as baby powder. Some talc naturally contains asbestos, which is known to cause lung cancer. Asbestos has been removed from household talcum products since the 1970s. Defendants in the suit included Johnson & Johnson, its subsidiary J&J Consumer Companies and Imerys Talc America.

Core funding for state universities cut 6.5 percent BUDGET • FROM A1

The last-ditch plan, which was approved on a bipartisan 28-5 vote, would raid a number of special state funds for enough cash to fill the gap. Supporters said the plan could generate $35 million in excessive funds that have been paid into programs that regulate, for example, doctors, engineers and veterinarians. “This is a one-time thing. It would not happen every year,” said Shalonn “Kiki” Curls, DKansas City. The proposal must be taken up by the House when it returns to action next week. The wheeling and dealing signaled that the final five days of the session next week could be turbulent. Under a budget plan proposed by Greitens in February, an estimated 20,000 elderly and disabled people would have lost medical coverage through a proposed change in eligibility guidelines. Under an alternative approved by the House, nearly 100,000 elderly renters would have lost a tax credit worth an average of $500. A compromise approved by both chambers would have left 8,000 nursing home residents and in-home care recipients in the cross-hairs. Democrats said without the fund sweep alternative, the budget plan would have hurt not only the elderly, but could result in job losses if nursing homes close. In addition, the 8,000 people afected by the change could be forced to seek health care at hospitals, where it is more expensive. In the meantime, the $3.4 billion funding plan for education was less contentious after the Legislature fully funded the school aid formula. The budget also fully funds state aid for school transportation programs at $105 million. The state’s public universities will see a 6.5 percent cut in core state funding. But, the to-

Thursday’s wheeling and dealing at the Missouri Capitol signaled that the inal ive days of the session next week could be turbulent.

tal amount spent remains higher than what Greitens had sought by about $50 million. University of Missouri System President Mun Choi said the university appreciated efforts to reduce cuts to the four-campus system. “We are always working to be efficient and effective with our resources and we will continue those efforts to ensure we are providing an accessible and affordable education for our students while serving the citizens of Missouri,” Choi said. Graduate programs at HarrisStowe State University had been set to lose a $1 million earmark, but negotiations by Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, resulted in $250,000 being restored. The budget plan includes no tax increases and no general wage increases for most state workers, who are the lowest paid

in the nation. “I think it’s unconscionable that we don’t allow raises for our state employees,” said Rep. Bob Burns, D-south St. Louis County. “Our state employees need a pay raise.” The plan gives Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft $1.5 million to educate voters about a new voter photo identification law. “We look forward to working with legislators in their districts to ensure every Missourian understands the new photo ID law and knows that if you are registered to vote, you can vote,” Ashcroft said. The budget also calls for the removal of new security checkpoints at the Capitol. Critics said the metal detectors were pointless because concealed weapons are allowed in the Capitol. Rather than force visitors

and workers to queue up for the checkpoints, the budget calls for five additional Capitol police officers to provide security in the building. The budget includes no significant increase in money for road and bridge upgrades, but it does ban spending on the development of toll highways. It also eliminates grants for drunk driving checkpoints, which are used by police to crack down on DWI. The budget blueprint also cuts eight administrative law judges who oversee worker compensation cases at the Department of Labor. And it reduces inspectors for prevailing wage laws. Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, temporarily held up passage of the budget because negotiators slashed the amount of money to be set aside

for a home buyout program she is championing. Chappelle-Nadal had sought $12 million to begin buying houses near the contaminated West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton. That earmark was reduced to $1 million in the final budget agreement. She said the lower amount might help only nine homeowners out of more than 100. “We’re picking and choosing who lives and who dies. That’s as simple as it is to me,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “I’m watching closely. And I’m going to keep watching closely, as if they were my own babies.” Celeste Bott of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

Riles, regionalism, reorganizing are on the table CHIEF • FROM A1

owned rifles on duty. O’Toole believes officers can carry rifles and be held accountable without jeopardizing relationships with residents. “We are outgunned by so many criminals, this will put us on a much more level playing field,” O’Toole said. “We hope to never use them, but we’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.” Mayor Lyda Krewson appointed O’Toole as interim chief moments after Dotson abruptly retired on April 19, the mayor’s first full day in oice. O’Toole has been with the department since 1984, and was most recently Dotson’s second in command. He said he hopes to become the department’s top cop long term. Krewson has opened the job to outside candidates for the first time in the department’s more than 150-year history, but also will consider internal applicants with the appropriate rank, such as O’Toole, said the mayor’s spokesman, Koran Addo. Until the city took control of the department from the state in 2013, state law required the chief to be promoted from within. Still, O’Toole isn’t planning to just keep the seat warm until Krewson appoints a new chief.

TACKLING VIOLENT CRIME Beyond rifles, O’Toole said his other priorities while he heads the 1,200-officer force include re-evaluating specialized units to

Lt. Col. Lawrence O’Toole

see where officers can be redeployed to fill short-staffed districts; working more closely with St. Louis County police; and lobbying city and business leaders to raise oicer salaries. “Manpower is a huge issue,” he said. “Our districts are so short I have no choice but to look at specialized units. We’re conducting a review just to see where we can pull oicers from.” The recent passage of Proposition P in St. Louis County, which county leaders say will raise officer salaries, was, “a huge punch to the gut for our guys,” O’Toole said. Other area chiefs have expressed concerns that the $80 million sales tax increase will de-

plete their forces, too. St. Louis County police spokesman Sgt. Shawn McGuire said the county received 90 applications for officer positions during the first three weeks after the April 4 vote — about 30 more than normal. Of those, 19 work for other departments in Missouri, but McGuire would not say from which ones. Usually, St. Louis County sees about five applicants from other departments in a month, he said. O’Toole said he thinks the mayor’s oice and businesses are working to find ways to raise St. Louis police salaries. He’s focused on working with St. Louis County police on crime-fighting strategies to reduce violence. O’Toole described his relationship with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar as “a good one,” and said they’ve already been in touch.

BUILDING TRUST Some of O’Toole’s priorities echo those of his predecessors, including working with the Missouri Highway Patrol to enforce laws along the highways that pass through the city, and improving community engagement. “We can’t sit here and not know we have a trust issue with some of our communities,” O’Toole said. “But it doesn’t do any good to make arrests, and, if a jury doesn’t believe me because I’m a police oicer, we’re not going to get the convictions.”

O’Toole didn’t ofer specifics on how the department can expand or improve its community engagement programs. Lt. Col. Ronnie Robinson heads a recently formed Community Engagement Unit. Programs include the Police Athletic League, an ice cream truck called Operation Polar Cops, a cellphone app that allows users to report crimes and keep up with department announcements, as well as a recently formed chess club that pairs officers with children from public schools. O’Toole doesn’t believe his rifle program will erode the department’s community outreach efforts. He envisions a “strict” policy that will outline appropriate uses of rifles, require officers to qualify to use them and restrict the number of officers who carry them based on staing levels. “We all know what happened in Ferguson … you don’t bring your rifles out for people who are protesting,” O’Toole said. A St. Ann police officer was fired for pointing a rifle at protesters in Ferguson in 2014, after the police shooting of Michael Brown. After the same protests, federal oicials criticized the St. Louis County police department for having officers perched atop armored vehicles and surveying crowds through their rifle sights. “It’s not just about your ability to shoot a gun, and know how to take it apart, it’s know-

ing how and when to deploy it,” O’Toole said.

‘BEHIND THE CURVE’ O’Toole’s belief in rifles is rooted in his experience as an incident commander at the city’s ABB Inc. plant in 2010, when a disgruntled worker shot and killed three people and wounded five others, before turning the gun on himself. He said the department’s review after the incident recommended oicers be equipped with rifles. Following those shootings, then-Chief Isom returned shotguns to patrol cars. But in 2011, an officer was caught carrying a personallyowned rifle on duty, which “put a total stop to the rifle program … and rightly so,” O’Toole said. Isom’s successor, Dotson, allowed only sergeants to carry pool rifles. O’Toole said he wants to use the proceeds from the sale of the department’s Tommy guns to pay for the new rifles and assign them to individual oicers. Some departments, including St. Louis County, allow oicers to carry their personal rifles. O’Toole opposes that idea, saying he believes the department should equip its officers appropriately for the risks they face. “We’re a large enough agency, and if we deem that you need that equipment, we should buy that equipment,” he said. “We’re behind the curve on this.” Christine Byers • 314-340-8087 @christinedbyers on Twitter cbyers@post-dispatch.com

Woman wins talcum powder verdict St. Louis jury awards cancer patient $110.5 million in lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis Circuit

Court jury returned a $110.5 million verdict Thursday for a Virginia woman in a lawsuit claiming Johnson & Johnson’s products caused her ovarian cancer. Lois Slemp, 62, of Wise, Va., claimed her use of the company’s Shower-to-Shower and Baby Powder products over four decades as well as asbestos particles found inside her caused her cancer. Slemp, a mother of two grown

sons, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. The cancer has since spread to her liver. The verdict included $5.4 million in actual damages, and $105 million in punitive damages, said Jim Onder, an attorney for the plaintif. In a statement after the verdict, Johnson & Johnson said: “We deeply sympathize with the women and families impacted by ovarian cancer. We will begin the appeals process following today’s verdict and believe a jury decision in our favor in St. Louis in March and the dismissal of two

cases in New Jersey in September 2016 by a state court judge who ruled that plaintifs’ scientific experts could not adequately support their theories that talcum powder causes ovarian cancer, further highlight the lack of credible scientific evidence behind plaintifs’ allegations. “We are preparing for additional trials this year and we will continue to defend the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder.” St. Louis jury verdicts in three cases totaled $197 million against the company last year. Last month, a St. Louis jury

found in favor of the company. About 2,000 state and federal lawsuits are pending. The trial began the first week of April; jury deliberations began Wednesday afternoon. St. Louis juries in the earlier cases found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn the public of studies linking its talccontaining products such as Shower-to-Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder to ovarian cancer. Talcum powder products contain the mineral talc that can absorb moisture and prevent chaf-

ing and rash. It is used in eye shadow, blush and some chewing gums as well as baby powder. Some talc naturally contains asbestos, which is known to cause lung cancer. Asbestos has been removed from household talcum products since the 1970s. Defendants in the suit included Johnson & Johnson, its subsidiary J&J Consumer Companies and Imerys Talc America.

Core funding for state universities cut 6.5 percent BUDGET • FROM A1

the budget across the finish line was approved on a bipartisan 28-5 vote. It would raid a number of special state funds for enough cash to fill a gap that opponents said would hurt the state’s most vulnerable populations. Supporters said the plan could generate $35 million in excessive funds that have been paid into programs that regulate, for example, doctors, engineers and veterinarians. “This is a one-time thing. It would not happen every year,” said Shalonn “Kiki” Curls, DKansas City. The proposal must be taken up by the House when it returns to action next week. Under a budget plan proposed by Greitens in February, an estimated 20,000 elderly and disabled people would have lost medical coverage through a proposed change in eligibility guidelines. Under an alternative approved by the House, nearly 100,000 elderly renters would have lost a tax credit worth an average of $500. A compromise approved by both chambers would have left 8,000 nursing home residents and in-home care recipients in the cross-hairs. Democrats said without the fund sweep alternative, the budget plan would have hurt not only the elderly, but could result in job losses if nursing homes close. In addition, the people afected by the change could be forced to seek health care at hospitals, where it is more expensive. In the meantime, the $3.4 billion funding plan for education was less contentious after the Legislature fully funded the school aid formula. The budget also fully funds state aid for school transportation programs at $105 million. The state’s public universities will see a 6.5 percent cut in core state funding. But, the total amount spent remains higher

The agreement that pushed the state budget across the inish line Thursday was approved by the Missouri Senate on a bipartisan 28-5 vote.

than what Greitens had sought by about $50 million. University of Missouri System President Mun Choi said the university appreciated efforts to reduce cuts to the four-campus system. “We are always working to be efficient and effective with our resources and we will continue those efforts to ensure we are providing an accessible and affordable education for our students while serving the citizens of Missouri,” Choi said. Graduate programs at HarrisStowe State University had been set to lose a $1 million earmark, but negotiations by Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, resulted in $250,000 being restored. The budget plan includes no tax increases and no general wage increases for most state workers, who are the lowest paid in the nation.

“I think it’s unconscionable that we don’t allow raises for our state employees,” said Rep. Bob Burns, D-south St. Louis County. “Our state employees need a pay raise.” The plan gives Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft $1.5 million to educate voters about a new voter photo identification law. “We look forward to working with legislators in their districts to ensure every Missourian understands the new photo ID law and knows that if you are registered to vote, you can vote,” Ashcroft said. The budget also calls for the removal of new security checkpoints at the Capitol. Critics said the metal detectors were pointless because concealed weapons are allowed in the Capitol. Rather than force visitors and workers to queue up for the

checkpoints, the budget calls for five additional Capitol police officers to provide security in the building. The budget includes no significant increase in money for road and bridge upgrades, but it does ban spending on the development of toll highways. It also eliminates grants for drunk driving checkpoints, which are used by police to crack down on DWI. The budget blueprint also cuts eight administrative law judges who oversee worker compensation cases at the Department of Labor. And it reduces inspectors for prevailing wage laws. Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, temporarily held up passage of the budget because negotiators slashed the amount of money to be set aside for a home buyout program she

is championing. Chappelle-Nadal had sought $12 million to begin buying houses near the contaminated West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton. That earmark was reduced to $1 million in the final budget agreement. She said the lower amount might help only nine homeowners out of more than 100. “We’re picking and choosing who lives and who dies. That’s as simple as it is to me,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “I’m watching closely. And I’m going to keep watching closely, as if they were my own babies.” Celeste Bott of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

owned rifles on duty. O’Toole believes officers can carry rifles and be held accountable without jeopardizing relationships with residents. “We are outgunned by so many criminals, this will put us on a much more level playing field,” O’Toole said. “We hope to never use them, but we’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.” Mayor Lyda Krewson appointed O’Toole as interim chief moments after Dotson abruptly retired on April 19, the mayor’s first full day in oice. O’Toole has been with the department since 1984, and was most recently Dotson’s second in command. He said he hopes to become the department’s top cop long term. Krewson has opened the job to outside candidates for the first time in the department’s more than 150-year history, but also will consider internal applicants with the appropriate rank, such as O’Toole, said the mayor’s spokesman, Koran Addo. Until the city took control of the department from the state in 2013, state law required the chief to be promoted from within. Still, O’Toole isn’t planning to just keep the seat warm until Krewson appoints a new chief.

TACKLING VIOLENT CRIME Beyond rifles, O’Toole said his other priorities while he heads the 1,200-officer force include re-evaluating specialized units to

see where officers can be redeployed to fill short-staffed districts; working more closely with St. Louis County police; and lobbying city and business leaders to raise oicer salaries. “Manpower is a huge issue,” he said. “Our districts are so short I have no choice but to look at specialized units. We’re conducting a review just to see where we can pull oicers from.” The recent passage of Proposition P in St. Louis County, which county leaders say will raise officer salaries, was, “a huge punch to the gut for our guys,” O’Toole said. Other area chiefs have expressed concerns that the $80 million sales tax increase will de-

plete their forces, too. St. Louis County police spokesman Sgt. Shawn McGuire said the county received 90 applications for officer positions during the first three weeks after the April 4 vote — about 30 more than normal. Of those, 19 work for other departments in Missouri, but McGuire would not say from which ones. Usually, St. Louis County sees about five applicants from other departments in a month, he said. O’Toole said he thinks the mayor’s oice and businesses are working to find ways to raise St. Louis police salaries. He’s focused on working with St. Louis County police on crime-fighting strategies to reduce violence. O’Toole described his relationship with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar as “a good one,” and said they’ve already been in touch.

O’Toole didn’t ofer specifics on how the department can expand or improve its community engagement programs. Lt. Col. Ronnie Robinson heads a recently formed Community Engagement Unit.

‘Slum pope,’ billionaire president to meet Both are populists, but similarities end there; Trump also to visit Saudi Arabia, Israel BY NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press

VATICAN CITY • When

Pope Francis meets with President Donald Trump at the Vatican at the end of this month, the world will be watching how the Argentine “slum pope” interacts with the brash New York billionaire-turnedpresident. On many issues and priorities, the two men couldn’t be more different. Francis wants bridges between nations, not the walls Trump is urging. Francis brought back a dozen Muslim Syrian refugees with him when he went to Greece last year, while Trump has tried to impose a travel ban on people from a half-dozen mostly Muslim nations. The pope sleeps in a two-room hotel suite. Trump lived in a skyscraper with his name on it before being elected. Francis wants to end the use of fossil fuels, while Trump has pledged to cancel payments to U.N. climate change programs and pull out of the Paris climate accord. U.S. bishops have praised the Trump administration for its antiabortion stance, but have opposed Republican health care plans because of their impact on the poor. Those issues and more are likely on the table when Trump arrives May 24 at the Apostolic Palace in Rome for the 8:30 a.m. audience that was announced Thursday. Despite their obvious differences, Trump and Francis share a populist bent. Both were elected on reform mandates and speak with a simplicity that has endeared them to their bases. And both share a common concern about the plight of Christians in the Middle East at the hands of Islamic militants. “They’re both populists, but populists of a different kind,” said Mathew Schmalz, associate professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. While agreeing they are both concerned about Islamic extremism, he said they differ in approaches and vision. “I’m not sure the Vatican at this stage wants to play along with the role envisioned by … Catholic advisers of Donald Trump, who want to resurrect the imagery of a civilizational conflict between Christianity and Islam,” he said. Yet in announcing his first foreign trip itinerary Thursday, which includes stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel, Trump said he chose Saudi Arabia as

his first stop precisely because it’s the home of two of the holiest sites in Islam. He said he wanted to “begin to construct a new foundation of cooperation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence and to embrace a more just and hopeful future for young Muslims in their countries.” The thrice-married Trump was raised as a Presbyterian and described himself as a “religious person” during his campaign, but often struggled to affirm his Christian credentials as he wooed the evangelical voters who helped elect him. Francis hasn’t commented on Trump’s presidency other than to say, on the day of his inauguration, that he’d take a wait-andsee approach. But Francis has railed against the “false forms of security” promised by populist leaders who want to wall themselves off and has called for world leaders to seek a future of greater solidarity. The two got off to a

rocky start when, during the U.S. presidential campaign, Francis said anyone who wants to build a wall to keep out foreigners is “not Christian.” Trump, who campaigned on plans to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, said it was “disgraceful” for a religious leader to question someone’s faith. More recently, Francis has urged the U.S. and North Korea to step away from the brink and use negotiations and diplomacy to defuse tension on the Korean peninsula.

Sober spin on Cinco de Mayo

”The Key To Outdoor Living”

Immigration debate dampens occasion celebrated mainly in the U.S. ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. •

For years, Yazmin Irazoqui Ruiz saw Cinco de Mayo as a reason to eat tacos and listen to Mexican music on the fifth day of May. The Mexican-born medical student, 25, left Mexico for the U.S. as a child and celebrates the day to honor a homeland she hardly remembers. But the Albuquerque, N.M., resident said she’s reluctant to take part in Cinco de Mayo festivities this year as President Don-

ald Trump steps up federal immigration enforcement and supporters back his call for the building of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “I mean, what is it about? You want to eat our food and listen to our music, but when we need you to defend us, where are you?” Irazoqui Ruiz asked about the wave of anti-immigrant sentiment in the country. She isn’t alone. Trump’s immigration policies and rhetoric are leaving some Mexican-Americans and immigrants feeling at odds

with a holiday they already thought was appropriated by liquor companies, promoters and bars. Latino activists and scholars say that ambivalence is bolstered by the hazy history of Cinco de Mayo and by stereotypes exploited by marketers. The once-obscure holiday marking a 19th-century battle between Mexico and invading French forces is a regular celebration in the U.S., where partygoers flock to bars for margaritas and tacos. Beer commercials often show mostly white actors celebrating.

“The narrative around Cinco de Mayo seems to say, ‘This day really isn’t yours,’” said Cynthia Duarte, a sociology professor at California Lutheran University. Tequila company Jose Cuervo is playing off the notion that the holiday is largely overlooked south of the border by throwing a party in the small Missouri town of Mexico. More than 90 percent of people there are white and less than 2.5 percent are of Mexican descent. The company marketed the event on its Facebook page as “Mexico’s First Cinco de Mayo.” This year, some immigrant enclaves have canceled or reduced celebrations over fears that partygoers could be exposed to possible deportation.

Westbound Interstate 44 was back in business Thursday afternoon, just in time for rush hour, and the eastbound lanes opened about 10 p.m. The Missouri Department of Transportation had said the eastbound opening was dependent on water receding and engineers finding no damage to roads and bridge structures. “If it’s a little bit of mud, we can take care of that pretty fast,” Tom Blair, assistant district engineer for MoDOT, said Thursday. “But if there’s damage, it may take a little longer.” The interstate had been closed to through traic for a 25-mile stretch from Interstate 270 to Gray Summit since Tuesday. Some local traffic had been allowed through to Bowles Avenue, but the closure had pushed most traic onto a long detour along Highway 100/Manchester Road. The exits from I-44 to Soccer Park Road and Highway 141 remained closed. Highway 141 will likely remain shut down at I-44 through the weekend. Earlier on Thursday, Interstate 55 was the good news. MoDOT had predicted that Interstate 55 would close in both directions as the river crested at Arnold, and that the bridges carrying Jeffco Boulevard/Lemay Ferry Road and Telegraph Road over the Meramec River might also have to close, cutting of the southern part of the region. In the end, only the southbound lanes of I-55 were closed, starting about noon Wednesday. Jeffco Boulevard was narrowed, but the crossing there and at Tele-

graph remained open. Closure of northbound lanes of I-55 was postponed, and in the end wasn’t necessary. Southbound lanes reopened early Thursday. Still, the closures of various other roads caused snarls and logistical problems in the area. MoDOT on Thursday thanked residents for their cooperation and patience. “Thank you to everyone in St. Louis,” Blair said at a midday press conference. “There’s so many of you that adjusted your schedules. Businesses, the hospitals, the schools, it’s been hard. We’re getting close to the end, so keep it up.” Blair said he hadn’t seen any estimate of how much extra money MoDOT had been

spending to deal with the flood, but he said it’s likely in the millions statewide. He said MoDOT hoped it could recoup some of the funds with state emergency dollars or federal aid. “We’re not focusing on the money,” Blair said. “We’re doing the job that we are expected to get done. The money will have to work its way out.”

OTHER ROUTES REOPENING Dozens of state routes remained closed Thursday in the metro area, but some were beginning to open. Highway 21 (Tesson Ferry Road) reopened late Thursday. Highway 109 north of I-44 had opened earlier. It remained closed south of I-44 Thursday because Highways W and FF

were under water. Farther south, Highway 141 at Romaine Creek in Jeferson County reopened Thursday morning. It’s unclear when other routes, such as Highway 30 (Gravois Road), will reopen. Blair said the agency hopes to have those paths open by the weekend. Meanwhile, the main way in and out of the Fenton area remains Bowles Avenue via I-44. “Most Fenton residents are still going to be stuck on Bowles,” Blair said. In St. Louis, flooding closed the Alabama Avenue bridge over the River Des Peres Thursday. Broadway remained open. U.S. Highway 67 in northeast St. Charles County continued to have “long travel times” because the road was restricted to one lane each way. Highway 94 remained closed from Augusta to Defiance in southwest St. Charles County. Highway 47 was closed Thursday in Warren County north of Washington, Mo. That exacerbated the delays on 100/Manchester Thursday morning, Blair said. He warned that similar delays could occur again during the Friday morning rush if Highway 47 doesn’t reopen by then. Blair urged people to “obey the barricades” on closed roads, even if the water has receded. If a barricade remains, the road is still considered unsafe for some reason. He said MoDOT workers are reporting that drivers are getting “a little bit more aggressive” in going around or removing barricades when they don’t see any water. He said that puts MoDOT workers and emergency responders in danger of being hit. “When the barricades are up, the road’s closed. Please obey that,” he said.

Railroad track divides the wet from the dry in Paciic

Tammy Neeley and her husband, Jonathan, moved all of their belongings from their garage into their home Thursday as they stayed through the lood in downtown Paciic. The Neeleys lifted their home 9 feet with the help of a grant in 2008 after a previous lood.

PACIFIC • The difference between wet and dry in this Franklin County town usually depends on which side of the railroad tracks you live on. Diane and Joseph McCormick, both 50, have lived on the wet side since they moved here from Florida in June. Many people have asked them why. Oddly, somebody in the grocery even laughed this week, after the Meramec River jumped its bank and flooded the old part of town once more. But Diane explained Thursday, voice cracking, right after seeing the layer of mud in her living room. “My family was here,” she said. “It was awesome. I had grandchildren 24 hours a day.” The grandchildren — a set of 3-year-old twins and a 9-year-old — and their parents lived one floor above the McCormicks in a tan, four-unit apartment building in the 200 block of West Watson Street. They were settling in nicely there. They planted flowers and were getting to know their neighbors, who also had a host of children. But when the dire forecast came last week, one family that experienced the flood in 2015 immediately packed up and moved out. Some of the others headed to a Red Cross shelter in town. The McCormicks, though, stayed behind, vowing to watch over their property. The couple went through the fallout of Hurricane Charley in 2004, when they lived in Fort Myers Beach, Fla. The flood in 2017 turned out to be more than they anticipated. “There were fish jumping,” Diane said. “The birds seemed to be lost. I was just

watching the water level get higher and higher. The water was flowing so fast.” On Tuesday, a boat from the Missouri Highway Patrol plucked them from a staircase and took them to the other side of the tracks. Their apartment building was one of about 170 homes and businesses that officials estimated were flooded, primarily in the southeast side of the town. In 2015, about 220 buildings were inundated. City engineer Dan Rahn said BNSF and Union Pacific railroad lines provide boundaries that typically shield much of the rest of town from floodwater. “They do help keep some of that back,” Rahn said. City administrator Steve Roth said the

south side is a valued part of downtown, even if it takes the brunt of the damage. “That area is part of what makes Pacific, Pacific,” Roth said. “It’s truly heartbreaking to see it happen two times, back to back.” Once again, floodwater reached chest high at the apartments on Watson Street. “It’s smelling like a bunch of dogs that went swimming in the river,” Joseph McCormick, a housepainter who sported a large gray beard, said about their firstfloor unit. They’d shuttled as much as they could to the second-story apartment, but still lost large furniture items and a 55-inch television. James Smallwood, 36, who trims trees

for a living, was less fortunate in the building next door. He’s going through a divorce and had recently acquired just about everything he needed — dishes, beds and furniture — to be comfortable. A set of Christmas stockings for his two boys had been washed out the window and hung from a tree limb. A new mattress set was soaked, as well as just about everything else but the clothing he was able to shuttle out before the flood. Relief workers recommend throwing out everything touched by floodwater, including canned goods. “These are my great-grandfather’s knives,” Smallwood said, walking through the kitchen, trying not to slip or touch the walls. “I don’t care if I get tetanus. You can’t replace these.” Right before the water came up, his landlord pulled out large appliances and all the doors. Smallwood’s coffee table floated into a neighboring apartment. The paper plate he used to eat pizza last weekend and a collection of toothpicks still sat in place, undisturbed. But a dresser from his boyhood was ruined. “I remember my mother yelling at me for drawing on it,” he told his neighbors. “Now I’ve got to throw it away.” Diane McCormick agreed on the things that matter most. “It’s the small things,” she said. The McCormicks have been sleeping in their vehicle at the shelter parking lot because they have two dogs, which aren’t allowed in overnight, but the neighbors have been sharing meals there and getting to know each other better. “We’ve come closer,” Smallwood said, “because we have a lot more in common.” Jesse Bogan • 314-340-8255 @jessebogan on Twitter jbogan@post-dispatch.com

Ways to help lood victims grow as the water recedes

ST. LOUiS POST-diSPaTCH • A9

Cleanup begins along Meramec; secondary crests are coming

BY DOUG MOORE St. Louis Post-dispatch

EUREKA • Elizabeth Arway, owner of Creative Entourage, has designed a line of T-shirts and tank tops her company is selling to raise funds for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s eforts in Eureka, Valley Park and Pacific. “I’ve been very inspired seeing the community rally together during these recent disasters and wanted to come up with a creative way to celebrate the ‘Eureka Strong’ motto, while also doing something to support flood victims,” Arway said. “We live here, we work here and we’re very proud to be part of the Eureka community.” So far, Arway said, more than $4,000 has been raised through the sale of more than 200 shirts. (The shirts, which range in price from $20 to $28, can be ordered at squareup.com/store/creative-entourage). As the water recedes, the T-shirt sale is just one example of how the efort to assist those afected by the flooding is growing. Elsewhere in Eureka, at Central Baptist Church, 601 North Central Avenue, items are being collected and distributed, including food, clothing, bedding and cleaning supplies. Those who aren’t Eureka residents are welcome. About 50 families had come to the church center as of Thursday afternoon. The center is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. but may extend hours based on need. On Thursday, ammonia was an item volunteers said was needed. To find out more, call 636-8915734.

ARNOLD On Thursday afternoon, employees of the Arnold Recreation Center, 1695 Missouri State Road, turned the outdoor pool area into a distribution center for cleaning supplies. The center will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. through Tuesday for drop-of and pickup. Lt. James Jones of the Arnold Police Department said the city is also hoping to rally volunteers to help clean up homes. The city’s Facebook page will be updated about the needs of local residents as they come in. The hardest-hit area in Arnold is along the north side of Starling Airport Road. Some houses in that area are still condemned from the lood in December 2015.

VALLEY PARK The Circle of Concern food pantry, 112 St. Louis Avenue, is seeking online donations to help those afected by looding. The pantry is in the evacuation zone of Valley Park, which the city’s mayor said will be open at 8 a.m. Friday. To ind out more about the pantry’s operating hours, call 636-861-2623.

“I am frustrated. Why did this happen twice in 15 months?” said John Winklemann, owner of Old Town Jewelers Ltd., who takes a beer break while cleaning up his business on Thursday in Eureka.

CLEANUP • FROM A1

while they clean up and recover after this flooding event.” Crews are clearing roads of debris to get them reopened, the mayor said. The river crested in Valley Park at 43.31 feet early Wednesday. It had dropped below 40 feet by Thursday morning. After a second crest on Sunday at about 32 feet, the river was forecast to drop to 12 feet there by next Thursday, illustrating how quickly the Meramec can swell and shrink.

‘BETTER THAN LAST TIME’ In downtown Eureka, several businesses had started cleaning up the water damage. But the sandbags will remain, said Don Tomnitz, assistant chief with the Eureka Fire Protection District. Scott Barthelmass of the Eureka Fire Department said the concern isn’t more flooding, but rather safety with respect to the continuing rain. Removing the sandbags can wait. The river was at 38 feet Thursday after cresting at 46.11 feet Tuesday night. The river was expected to continue dropping. Still, a second, smaller crest is expected over the weekend. That crest was forecast at about 34 feet. The levels of damage varied greatly. Chick-n-Elly’s fried chicken restaurant did not take in any water. The owners hope to open on Saturday. The office of Shelter Insurance agent Steve Parker got 41 inches of water. When the flood happened in December 2015, he was away on vacation and came back to find everything damaged. This time, employees were able to move the furniture and other items out of harm’s way, leaving the damage primarily to the carpet, which was being torn out Thursday morning. At St. Francis’ Episcopal Church, workers were cutting away drywall and rolling out carpet soaked by water that rose to 4 feet. All the items at ground level had been moved to safety prior to the flood. Across the region, schools and roads remained closed as floodwater continued making commutes near the river a challenge. However, both lanes of Interstate 55 running through Jeferson County were open. In Arnold, residents were praising city leaders and utility companies for being better prepared than when floods pummeled the area 16 months ago. Michael Doutre, of the 2300 block of Boeing Drive, said that in December 2015 water filled his basement and made its way into the main level of the house. This go-around, three pumps running in his

basement kept the water out of the rest of the house. “This is a whole lot better than last time,” Doutre said as he and neighbors cleaned up. Because authorities did a better job of predicting the flood and warning residents it was coming, Doutre said he was able to move furniture and other items into a neighbor’s house where high water was not expected. The added time allowed neighbors to build sandbag walls and get pumps in place. But flood damage twice within two years was too much for some residents. “Every 500 year flood? Shouldn’t it be like every 15 month flood?” said Keith Roeder, who lives on Electra Drive with his wife, Stacy Robinson. Three weeks ago, they had finally finished basement repairs from the December 2015 flood, which included new drywall and turning a bedroom into a home oice. This time, water and sewage rose more than 2 feet. It wiped out the inventory of Robinson’s bath salts business, and the couple are considering moving. “We can’t live with this,” Roeder said. The river crested at 45.62 inches near Interstate 55 in Arnold on Wednesday afternoon, a bit short of the 46-foot forecast. Southbound lanes of I-55 closed about noon Wednesday and reopened early Thursday. The northbound lanes never closed. The river was forecast to

remain at between 41 and 45 feet through the weekend with additional rain.

A SIGH OF RELIEF In Pacific, much of the water downtown had drained. City officials were inspecting homes and checking with Ameren to get electricity turned back on, according to City Administrator Steve Roth. City officials estimated more than 150 homes and businesses were damaged by the flood. In 2015, that number was more than 200, but some of those buildings were demolished because of damage. The river was at about 24 feet in Pacific on Thursday, after a crest of 33.05 feet on Tuesday. A second crest at about 25 feet is expected over the weekend due to additional rain. Throughout the region, relieved authorities warned that flood-prone areas were not completely out of the woods. A flash flood watch remained in effect through Friday morning for a large swath of the area including the Metro East, St. Louis city and the Missouri counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, Jeferson and Lincoln.

As Missouri and Mississippi rise, West Alton area residents again are urged to evacuate BY MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-dispatch

WEST ALTON • With the Mississippi and Missouri rivers continuing to rise, local officials Thursday afternoon urged area residents east of Highway 67 who plan to evacuate “to do so now!!” That warning was included in an update posted on the Rivers Pointe Fire Protection District’s Facebook page about 1 p.m. The city was still under a voluntary evacuation Thursday night, but neither river had risen above its levee by about 6 p.m., firefighter Tony Emgee said. “We’re keeping a close eye with emergency weather oicials and keeping an eye on the levees,” he said. “We’re still under voluntary evacuation to make sure everyone has a plan in place.” Fire district Lt. Chris Redd said in an earlier interview that the predicted crest in the area for the Mississippi has been in-

creased to 35 feet, a foot above what the levee is designed for. “Sometime later today, the water will start flowing over Riverlands Way and will start filling in the area we all refer to as the ‘point,’” the district said in the Facebook post. “If you live along the line of Highway 67 and east to the Confluence Point, water will start filling in the low lying areas.” The district also advised residents east of the highway who are planning to remain in their homes because they are raised “to make sure you have provisions needed now.” Meanwhile, the fire district urged those living west of Highway 67 to reconsider evacuation. “Both of the levee systems will have water to the very tops of the levees,” the Facebook post said. “Right now our area is at the highest risk that we can be. With the amount of water on both levee systems, the risk of possible failure increases.”

The Facebook post went on to say that “this is not a time to second guess or wait and hope that river predictions will change. This is the most important time to take action while there is plenty of time to do so.” The Missouri River crest also may exceed the height of that river’s levee system in the West Alton area, oicials said. Highway 94 between Harbor Point Road and Dwiggens Road remained closed Thursday night due to flooding. Officials on Tuesday night had issued a voluntary evacuation order in the town of about 500 people. In 2015, a levee near West Alton failed, affecting dozens of homes.

creased to 35 feet, a foot above what the levee is designed for. “Sometime later today, the water will start flowing over Riverlands Way and will start filling in the area we all refer to as the ‘point,’” the district said in the Facebook post. “If you live along the line of Highway 67 and east to the Confluence Point, water will start filling in the low lying areas.” The district also advised residents east of the highway who are planning to remain in their homes because they are raised “to make sure you have provisions needed now.” Meanwhile, the fire district urged those living west of Highway 67 to reconsider evacuation. “Both of the levee systems will have water to the very tops of the levees,” the Facebook post said. “Right now our area is at the highest risk that we can be. With the amount of water on both levee systems, the risk of possible failure increases.”

The Facebook post went on to say that “this is not a time to second guess or wait and hope that river predictions will change. This is the most important time to take action while there is plenty of time to do so.” The Missouri River crest also may exceed the height of that river’s levee system in the West Alton area, oicials said. Highway 94 between Harbor Point Road and Dwiggens Road remained closed Thursday night due to flooding. Officials on Tuesday night had issued a voluntary evacuation order in the town of about 500 people. In 2015, a levee near West Alton failed, affecting dozens of homes.

House Republicans cheer ‘Obamacare’ repeal, but Senate has its own ideas HEALTH • FROM A1

together a package that reflects our member’s priorities with the explicit goal of getting 51 votes,” Sen. Orrin Hatch, RUtah, reasoned. Now that the House has narrowly passed legislation overhauling the nation’s health care system, it is headed to the Senate, where Republican leaders will wrestle with political and procedural challenges complicating chances for final passage. Republican senators are signaling that their strategy will be rooted in crafting their own replacement for the Affordable Care Act. It remains to be seen how closely that measure will resemble the American Health Care Act, which narrowly passed the House on Thursday. The final vote was 217-213, with 20 Republicans and all Democrats opposing it. It is also unclear whether Republican senators will resolve their own diferences. A small group of GOP senators met Thursday morning in the oice of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to begin outlining health care priorities, said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, McConnell’s top deputy. “It was designed by the leader to be a smaller group of people that represent the diferent perspectives and points of view in our conference,” Cornyn said. “If that group can get to yes, then (we will) take it to the rest of the conference.” But Cornyn would not commit to a timeline for a Senate vote, simply saying: “When we get 51 senators, we’ll vote.” Republicans hold a 52 to 48 advantage over Democrats in the upper chamber, leaving GOP leaders with a narrower margin for error than in the House — where infighting among Republican lawmakers nearly derailed the push on multiple occasions. In a sign of the frustration that some Republican senators have with the House bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., posted a skeptical note on Twitter Thursday: “A bill — finalized yesterday, has not been scored, amendments not allowed, and 3 hours final debate — should be viewed with caution.” Senate Republicans have opted to use a maneuver known as reconciliation to try to pass the bill with a simple major-

ity, instead of having to clear the 60-vote threshold that is required for most legislation. In the current balance of power, that would require Democratic votes. But even getting to a simple majority will be no small task. GOP senators from states that have expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, such as Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, have voiced concerns about rollbacks to that program in the House bill. Meanwhile, a trio of conservative senators — Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Mike Lee, RUtah, and Rand Paul, R-Ky. — are also wild cards. They have been willing to buck party leadership. “I think that the House Freedom Caucus was able to make the bill a lot less bad,” Paul said. “I think there’s still some fundamental problems that I have with it.” Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, have already introduced an alternative plan. Then there are the procedural hoops that Senate Republicans will need to clear, which could steer them to strip away some of the House bill’s signature provisions. The measure’s original version, introduced in March by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., already contained elements at risk of being struck out in the Senate under budget reconciliation rules that allow tax and spending changes but not broader policy changes. That proposal initially left many of the ACA’s insurance regulations alone — with the goal of ensuring it would pass muster with the Senate parliamentarian, a nonpartisan oicer of the Senate who decides on what may go in a reconciliation bill — but not all of them. The version of the bill the House passed Thursday undercuts the ACA’s insurance regulations even more, by giving states a path to opt out of federal requirements for insurers to cover certain “essential” health benefits and to charge sick people the same premiums as healthy people. The GOP bill would allow insurers to charge older Americans five times what they charge younger people, as opposed to three times as much under current law. And it would enable insurers to hike premiums by 30 percent for people who don’t remain continuously covered. Health policy experts, including conser-

vative ones, have noted that the parliamentarian may decide those provisions need to be stripped out. Additionally, members of the House voted on their bill before they received a score from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which measures how much the legislation would cost and how many people stand to lose coverage. Senate budget rules require a CBO score that proves the legislation will not increase the deficit after 10 years. The Senate parliamentarian can’t start reviewing the AHCA without a score from the CBO, which is expected to take several weeks. “I sincerely hope the Senate won’t mimic the House and try to rush it through without hearings or debate or analysis,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. The CBO projected in late March that an earlier version of the GOP health care plan would result in 14 million more people being uninsured in 2018 than under current law. Even if Senate Republicans manage to pass their own version of a health care overhaul, it would then have to be reconciled with the House version. The St. Louis-area delegation in the House voted along party lines. None of the Republican defectors was from the region. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, said Republicans had to act because the Afordable Care Act had become “completely unafordable and unworkable.” But Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, said the bill threatened lives by pushing some of health coverage. He said Republicans will pay a political price in the next election. “Everybody who voted for it today will own this shameful betrayal of the American people forever,” he said. Rep. Billy Long, R-Springfield, had been one of the bill’s doubters until he and three other House members met Wednesday with President Donald Trump, and came away with what they said was an agreement to provide additional funds to help people with pre-existing conditions. The health legislation passed the House on a banner day for Republicans on Capitol Hill, as the Senate gave final congressional approval to a bipartisan $1.1 trillion spending bill, and a House committee approved legislation that would gut the Democratic-authored Dodd-Frank law that regulated Wall Street after the 2008 financial crisis. Chuck Raasch of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

KEY ELEMENTS OF BILL Ends tax penalties that Barack Obama’s law imposes on individuals who don’t purchase health insurance and on larger employers who don’t ofer coverage to workers. Halts extra payments Washington sends to states to expand Medicaid to additional poorer Americans, and forbids states that haven’t already expanded Medicaid to do so. Changes Medicaid from an open-ended program that covers beneiciaries’ costs to one that gives states ixed amounts of money annually. Erases Obama’s subsidies for people buying individual policies based mostly on consumers’ incomes and premium costs. Replaces them with tax credits that grow with age that must be used to defray premiums. The credits are refundable, which means they can go to people with little or no tax liability. Credits may not be used to buy policies that provide abortion coverage. Repeals Obama’s taxes on people with higher incomes and on insurance companies, prescription drugmakers, some medical devices, expensive employerprovided insurance plans and tanning salons. Obama’s law has used the revenue to help pay for expanded coverage. Requires insurers to apply 30 percent surcharges to customers who have let coverage lapse for more than 63 days in the past year. This would include people with pre-existing medical conditions. Lets states get federal waivers allowing insurers to charge older customers higher premiums than younger ones by as much as they’d like. Obama’s law limits the diference to a 3-1 ratio. States can get waivers exempting insurers from providing consumers with required coverage of speciied health services, including hospital and outpatient care, pregnancy and mental health care. States can get waivers from Obama’s prohibition against insurers charging higher premiums to people with preexisting health problems, but only if the person has had a gap in insurance coverage. States could get those waivers if they have mechanisms like high-risk pools that are supposed to help cover people with serious, expensive-to-treat diseases. Critics say these pools are often underfunded and inefective. Provides $8 billion over ive years to help states inance their high-risk pools. This late addition, aimed at winning over votes, is on top of $130 billion over a decade in the bill for states to help people aford coverage. Retains Obama’s requirement that family policies cover grown children to age 26, and its prohibition against varying premiums because of a customer’s gender. Associated Press

GOP, Democrats cite victory and loss in budget bill $1.1 trillion plan in Trump’s hands

Trump removes ‘inancial threat’ on religious groups IRS rule limited political activity by houses of worship BY CATHERINE LUCEY AND RACHEL ZOLL associated Press

BY ANDREW TAYLOR associated Press

WASHINGTON • The Senate has delivered to President

Donald Trump the first significant legislation of his presidency, a bipartisan $1.1 trillion spending bill that would keep the government running through September — putting of, for now, battles over Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall and his promised military buildup. The lopsided, 79-18 Senate vote sends the huge bill to the White House in plenty of time to avert a midnight Friday shutdown deadline. Negotiators on the bill dropped Trump’s demands for a down payment on his oft-promised wall along the U.S.Mexico border, but his signature would buy five months of funding stability while lawmakers argue over the wall and over Trump’s demands for a huge military buildup matched by cuts to popular domestic programs and foreign aid accounts. The House passed the measure Wednesday on a big bipartisan vote, though 103 of the chamber’s conservative Republicans opposed the bill. The White House and its GOP allies praised $15 billion in additional Pentagon spending obtained by Trump and $1.5 billion in emergency border security funds but was denied funding to begin construction work on the wall. “After years of an administration that failed to get serious on border security, this bill provides the largest border-security funding increase in a decade,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a key negotiator. Democrats and the Republicans who negotiated the bill successfully defended other accounts targeted by Trump, such as foreign aid, the Environmental Protection Agency, support for the arts and economic development grants. The sweeping, 1,665-page bill also increases spending for NASA, medical research and the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies. Democrats also praised the measure as an example of bipartisan cooperation in the handling of the 12 annual appropriations bills that fund the federal government. It reflects bipartisan culture among congressional appropriators, who long ago sorted out many of the spending fights Trump wants to renew this summer — over foreign aid, funding for the arts, Amtrak subsidies, grants to state and local governments, and development agencies like the Appalachian Regional Commission. “On a bipartisan basis, we rejected President Trump’s ill-considered proposal to slash domestic programs by $15 billion, including deep cuts for NIH and low-income energy assistance. Instead, this bill includes a $2 billion increase for the National Institutes of Health,” said a top Democratic negotiator, Sen. Pat Leahy of Vermont, who called the bill “a good deal for the American people.” Trump took to Twitter this week to complain about the bipartisan process that produced the measure but later crowed about extra spending for the military and border security. The White House has said he’ll sign the bill. One of Trump’s tweets advocated for a “good shutdown” this fall to fix the “mess” that produced the bill, though he boasted hours later that it was a win for him. Congressional Republicans — motivated by fear of a politically damaging shutdown — worked closely with minority party Democrats to produce the measure, which made only small changes to most accounts. But many rank-and-file Republicans saw the bill as a lost opportunity. “It is a win for Democrats and a loss for conservatives,” said Tea Party Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va. Meanwhile, retired union coal miners won a $1.3 billion provision to preserve health benefits for more than 22,000 retirees. House Democrats won funding to give the cash-strapped government of Puerto Rico $295 million to ease its Medicaid burden.

WASHINGTON • Declaring he was giving churches their “voices back,” President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday aimed at easing an IRS rule limiting political activity for religious organizations — a move that fell far short of a more sweeping order some supporters had expected. As he marked the National Day of Prayer at the White House on Thursday, Trump signed the order on religious freedom, which directs the Treasury Department to not take “adverse action” over churches or religious organizations for political speech. The rule has rarely been enforced. Still, opponents said the restrictions have a chilling efect on free speech. “This financial threat against the faith community is over,” Trump said. He has long promised the conservative Christian supporters who helped him win the White House that he would block the regulation, known as the Johnson Amendment, though any repeal would have to be done by Congress. The amendment, named for then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, was put into force in 1954. The policy allows a wide range of advocacy on political issues, but in the case of houses of worship, it bars electioneering and outright political endorsements from the pulpit. The IRS does not make public its investigations of such cases, but only one church is known to have lost its tax-exempt status as a result of the prohibition. Trump’s order also asks federal agencies to consider issuing new regulations that the White House says could help religious groups that object to paying for contraception under the Afordable Care Act health law. And it asks the attorney general to issue guidance on federal religious liberty protections. The order did not match a broader, much more detailed draft leaked earlier this year that included provisions on conscience protection for faith-based ministries, schools

and federal workers across an array of agencies. Robin Fretwell Wilson, a legal scholar who advises legislators on balancing LGBT rights and religious liberty, said the language in the document was so vague, it was unclear what impact it would have. “I’m not seeing a lot more shield around people of faith from this,” said Wilson, a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Leaders of some faith groups condemned the order, saying it would damage congregations by politicizing them. But the American Civil Liberties Union announced late Thursday it had dropped its initial plan to file a lawsuit to prevent the order from taking efect, saying “today’s executive order signing was an elaborate photo-op with no discernible policy outcome.” Trump spoke to religious leaders in the Rose Garden, where he also announced he’ll visit Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Vatican — including a meeting with Pope Francis — on his first foreign trip. In the audience were members of the Little Sisters of the Poor, who run more than two dozen nursing homes for impov-

erished seniors, and object to having to pay for birth control in their health plans. Several religious leaders who supported Trump praised the order as a first step in what would be a lengthy, diicult process of reworking a web of regulations that many religious conservatives consider unfair. Tony Perkins, head of the conservative Family Research Council, which has advocated for a repeal of the IRS restrictions on political speech, said Trump has started “a multiphase process” on religious liberty that will “keep the promises the administration has made to people of faith.” But Michael Farris, chief executive of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian legal group that advocates for broad religious liberty protections, said “we strongly encourage” the president to go further. “Though we appreciate the spirit of today’s gesture, vague instructions to federal agencies simply leaves them wiggle room to ignore that gesture, regardless of the spirit in which it was intended,” Farris said in a statement.

Badge of authority With MetroLink security in question, policing solution takes on new urgency.

W

hen St. Louis County stripped authority from MetroLink security officers to issue tickets and perform policing duties more than a year ago, it created a potential legal nightmare subjecting thousands of citations to challenge and reversal. At the same time, there remains an urgent need to establish security on the system since the FBI shows no inclination to grant the recognition required to give MetroLink independent policing authority. The onus is on St. Louis city and county and St. Clair County officials to curtail the current free-for-all environment on the transportation system and step up plans for a police force composed of licensed officers from their respective jurisdictions answering to a single commander. MetroLink’s recent crime wave can be attributed to the system’s unarmed and ineffectual private security-monitoring force. The security plan in place during MetroLink’s 24-year history has been murky and disjointed. Bi-State Development, the agency that oversees MetroLink, says officers have issued tickets since 1993 using a federal identifying number assigned to St. Louis County. No one seems to know who authorized the practice. The FBI uses the number to compile statistics and measure accountability of law enforcement agencies. In October 2015, St. Louis city and county police chiefs told Bi-State it could no longer use the number and must apply for its own. The FBI turned down Bi-State’s application, leaving MetroLink without a fully empowered security force. St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert

McCulloch says his office stopped filing charges on MetroLink citations more than a year ago because he doubted their legitimacy. Previously, the office had prosecuted the violations in circuit court under state statute. Typical proceeds of $25 from tickets MetroLink issued over the years went to the jurisdictions where the cases were prosecuted. McCulloch told Post-Dispatch reporters Stephen Deere, Christine Byers and Walker Moskop different things about the tickets. After saying MetroLink security personnel could not legally issue tickets for fare violations, he then said that argument “could go either way.” He later said state law allowed Bi-State to appoint personnel to legally enforce rules and issue citations and that his office wouldn’t file fare violation charges unless MetroLink installs turnstiles. Instead of trying to determine how MetroLink got to this point, officials must figure out how to pay for the police patrols and centralized command that top county and city officials say they’ve agreed upon. Legal oversight must also be restored. St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger used money from a special sales tax to double the number of officers patrolling MetroLink, leaving it with 38 county and eight city officers. Bi-State has allocated $20 million of MetroLink’s $361 million budget for enhanced security, and St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern has authorized an additional $300,000. Those are good steps toward a solution that must not be delayed, or the region will suffer irreparable harm to its reputation.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Editorial on Meramec looding, Valley Park levee is uninformed Once again the Post-Dispatch has an uninformed opinion and was outdone by local TV media. The editorial “Inundation, inspiration, recrimination” (May 3), again blaming the Valley Park levee for the woes of those folks along the Meramec River, is misplaced. The Meramec River basin has always been a volatile flood environment due in large part to the topography throughout the Meramec Basin. KMOV’s coverage Tuesday night hit the nail on the head. In the 1930s, the Army Corps of Engineers began studying the conditions and proposed what ultimately would have been two reservoirs that were specifically intended to control the problem that exists today. Construction was set to begin on the Meramec Park Lake in the 1970s, and the environmental lobby successfully fought it. For all the Post-Dispatch’s bashing of the corps, they had the right idea and knew what they were doing. The reservoirs that control the other river systems are why flooding is less of an issue for these kind of rain events. KMOV bothered to ask some questions, do some research, and talk to some people. The Post-Dispatch just keeps bashing the corps and the Valley Park levee. If the paper wants to understand this situation rather than just writing “bash” pieces, it actually needs to do more work and quit spouting what the environmental groups have now made a cause.

Doubling down on deceit White House uses smoke-and-mirror tactics in border wall ploy.

M

ick Mulvaney, director of the Oice of Management and Budget, went a little crazy Tuesday at the White House. He showed of a photo display of steel-barrier construction and launched into a frenzied attempt to describe how President Donald Trump is already making good on his promise to build a border wall. His flailing presentation was a clear effort to drown out the sounds of silence from Capitol Hill, where Republicans and Democrats have agreed to zero dollars for Trump’s border wall in the current funding deal. Rather than admit defeat, the administration is doubling down on deceit. “The president delivered on his promises and got his priorities funded, and that’s what the Democrats don’t want you to know. They want you to think they won, but they don’t want you to know the American people won here because the president simply out-negotiated them,” Mulvaney said. Voice rising, he jabbed his index finger at a succession of photos. “And we’re going to build this. There are several hundreds of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall. … We are building this now. There is money in this deal to build several hundreds of millions of dollars of this to replace this. That’s what we got in this deal and that’s what the Democrats don’t want you to know. This stuff is going up now. Why? Because the president wants to make the country more safe,” he added.

Asked where the photos were taken, Mulvaney was clueless. CNN reporter Gary Tuchman checked it out and identified the exact location: Sunland Park, N.M., near the border cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Mulvaney’s remarks were more than disingenuous. He pointed to the chain-link cyclone fence and said,“This doesn’t stop drugs and doesn’t stop criminals from crossing the border. In fact, it doesn’t stop hardly anything from crossing the border.” It wasn’t meant to. The cyclone fence was erected for workplace security by a construction company hired under the Obama administration to perform repair and upgrade work on a segment of existing fencing. Obama authorized the work under the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which then-President George W. Bush signed into law to provide funding for fence upgrades, primarily near heavily populated areas. The photos were taken from the Mexican side of the border, CNN reported, and the construction work took place long ago with no Trump administration input. Trump does have access to funds limited to the same repair and upgrade work done previously. Mulvaney’s antics do nothing to advance the administration’s agenda. If the president wants full funding for a border wall, he must lay out a clear case and present a winning argument, not use smoke-and-mirror gimmicks to suggest progress where none exists.

I have some property on the Meramec River near Sullivan. The flood that peaked there Monday broke the previous record crest by more than 3 feet. Interestingly seven of the 10 previous record crests were after 1981. This coincides with the steady increase in world, U.S. and Missouri average temperatures since 1980, and the 5 percent increase in average atmospheric water vapor. Some might feel this is a coincidence. For those who do, I suggest googling the “National Climate Assessment.” The 2014 report covers extreme weather across the U.S. Then find the chart showing observed trends in heavy precipitation since 1900, and you will see that this is no coincidence.“The heaviest rainfall events have become heavier and more frequent, and the amount of rain falling on the heaviest rain days has also increased. Since 1991, the amount of rain falling in very heavy precipitation events has been significantly above (the 1901-1960) average.” Get ready for more and worse flooding — eventually on an annual basis. Let’s all join together to fight global warming and its consequence: climate change. Tony Loman • Kirkwood

American democracy at risk when we silence our citizens The right to protest is essential to America’s survival. Tod Robberson suggests in his column (April 27),“There’s no constitutional right to commit mayhem,” that acts of protest and civil disobedience disrupt the order of the law. The question we should ask is why our fellow Americans — who are guaranteed equal rights under the Constitution — are willing to risk their lives to hold our system of law and order accountable to the citizens it should protect and serve. Robberson says whether the rule of law is applied uniformly is “debatable.” It’s not.Ferguson. Balch Springs.Baton Rouge. Baltimore.

Protests and civil disobedience have never been popular. Martin Luther King Jr.? Jailed 30 times. Rosa Parks? Jailed twice in the Montgomery bus boycott. John Lewis? Arrested 45 times. Instead of being outraged at protesters, we should be outraged that police are twice as likely to kill blacks as whites. We should be outraged that black teens are 21 times more likely than white teens to be shot and killed by police. After Michael Brown was killed in August 2014, oicers arrested protesters, reporters and legal observers. They deployed chemical weapons without warning. Robberson asks where we draw the line with the right to protest. He should ask a diferent question: What’s at risk when we silence our citizens? The ACLU believes that everyone has a right to express themselves. We’ve defended the rights of both Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos. The Constitution protects protests even when they anger and disrupt the status quo. America’s free speech tradition allows us all to make change by making our voices heard. That is essential to the survival of our American democracy. Jefrey A. Mittman • St. Louis Executive director, ACLU of Missouri

Trump wanted to ‘drain the swamp,’ doesn’t want to live in it There are two things I miss most from our nation’s capital, specifically the White House. First, having a president actually reside at the White House. President Donald Trump wanted to “drain the swamp” but apparently does not want to live in the swamp on a consistent basis. I guess Mara-Lago has better accommodations even though the food may be questionable. Secondly, I miss the normal precursor to White House reaction to national and international events: specifically, the notice that “the White House is preparing a response.” The meaning of this is that the president and his advisers are preparing a carefully measured response — something not associated with a knee-jerk, 140-character blurb.

St. Louis housing market is behaving more rationally In response to the article “Most homes in St. Louis — and the rest of the U.S. — are still worth less than before the crash” (online May 3), I would like to say — Good! That’s a sign that the housing market is behaving more rationally. The values of homes became grossly exaggerated in the years before the recession. The major driving force for this was the availability of financing options under loose underwriting regulations. People up and down the economic ladder were getting loans that were very risky. What we have seen since the recession is that financing is harder to come by and people are now aware of the consequences of getting a loan they can’t realistically pay back. As a Realtor, I would rather see the market react to what people need or have reasonably planned for rather than being driven by easy financing. The Midwest in general, and St. Louis in particular, continue to provide great deals on homes and other properties because the values are not up to pre-recession levels. We are in a market that is nowhere near its potential cap for market values. Whether you are buying for ownership or investment, we are on pretty solid ground.

HOBBLING THE WAR PLUNDERERS • We have seen a war on a distant continent seized on as an agency of plunder at home. We have seen conditions justifying moderate increase in prices made an excuse for outrageous three- or four-fold increases.

Jimmy Kimmel’s philosophy lesson His sentiment is that regardless of party, we all think everyone is entitled to equal medical treatment. E.J. DIONNE Washington Post

Those of us in the world of column-writing and policy wonkery ought to be humbled: It often takes a celebrity, preferably a comedian, to break through with an argument that transforms public understanding. In particularly successful cases, the celebrity demolishes conventions and blurts out a deep truth that only occasionally makes it into the day-to-day arguments and journalistic accounts. So here’s hoping that Jimmy Kimmel wins some humanitarian awards for his 13-minute monologue about the recent birth of his son, Billy. He described how emergency heart surgery days after Billy was born saved his child’s very new life. Kimmel used his personal experience to ask the philosophical questions that need to animate every debate over whether health care is a right that ought to be underwritten by government: Why should being born with any sort of defect raise your insurance

costs all your life? Why should the babies of well-off people, including comedians, have a better shot at surviving than newborns whose parents lack the money to buy health insurance? More generally, why should anyone be denied coverage? Here is the policy core of Kimmel’s monologue that those who advocate health care for all might consider memorizing like a catechism answer, a Torah portion or a favorite verse of scripture or poetry: “Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you would never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. You were born with a pre-existing condition, and if your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not live long enough to even get denied because of a preexisting condition. “If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make. I think that’s something now, whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, or something else, we all agree on that, right? I mean, we do. Whatever your party, whatever you believe, whoever

you support, we need to make sure that the people who are supposed to represent us — people who are meeting about this right now in Washington — understand that very clearly.” What makes this especially powerful is what appears to be the political naivete that underlies Kimmel’s sentiment: that regardless of party, we all think everyone is entitled to equal medical treatment. If Kimmel were describing

politics in just about any other economically advanced democracy, he would be absolutely right. Conservative parties elsewhere routinely support a very large role for government in guaranteeing health care. Britain’s Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May, who faces an election next month, brags about funding the National Health Service at record levels. Her opponents challenge her on what this means in practice, but that’s not the point: She wants voters to know she supports Britain’s essentially socialized system. But Kimmel’s assertion is not accepted by right-leaning politicians in the United States. It is not, alas, something “we all agree on.” This is why Republicans are trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. A few honest ideologues are willing to admit this.“I do not believe health care is a basic human right,” Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told a town hall meeting this year. The crowd reacted angrily, suggesting they’re with Kimmel. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., likes the idea of requiring those “who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool,” which would have the effect of “reducing the cost to those

people who lead good lives, they’re healthy.” Let’s count the problems here. What, exactly, did Billy Kimmel do wrong to have a heart problem on his first day of life? What should we do about all those Americans who lead “good lives” by Brooks’ exacting definition but don’t earn enough to afford good insurance? Why should rich people who live “bad lives” have a huge health care edge over lower-income people who jog every day? Republicans are having trouble with their repeal bill because the gut response of most Americans is that Kimmel is right and rightwing ideologues are wrong. Any parent who has had a child get very sick knows this. That is why President Trump and GOP leaders try to pretend that a cruel bill threatening the health coverage of millions is far less damaging than it is. After Kimmel’s intervention, we have to face the fact that either we pay the public cost of covering everyone, or kids like his son will die when they could have lived. E.J.

Demons of distraction

A MS-13 gang member in an El Salvador prison in 2012.

Trump now invokes MS 13 gangsters as a way to justify his border wall. TOD ROBBERSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

President Donald Trump’s justification for the border wall is morphing before our very eyes. Back when he was a candidate, he promised a border wall to keep Mexican immigrants out, which is strange since Mexicans reportedly no longer comprise the majority of undocumented immigrants in the country. But Trump needed an enemy for his base to blame for its woes. Mexicans got the nod. Those immigrants were stealing American jobs, he told supporters. The wall would keep them out. And Mexico would pay for it. Some Mexicans are OK people, Trump conceded in the June 2015 speech announcing his candidacy, but “when Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. ... They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” Demonization and scare tactics became his campaign trademark. To get Americans fired up, he had to give them someone to hate. The Republican Party fought back, warning the candidate that he risked hopelessly driving away millions of Latino voters. Trump eased off the caustic labels, but he continued to pound hard on the pledge to build the wall and make Mexico pay for it. Congress is poised to approve a budget deal that denies him funding for the wall. President Enrique Pena Nieto’s government has stated repeatedly that there’s no way in hell Mexico will pay for it. Suddenly, Trump is reviving the scare tactics, now invoking the street gang MS 13 as the villain.“The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!” he tweeted on April 18. “The Democrats don’t want money from budget going to

border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members,” he posted on April 23. MS 13 allows him to invoke all the frightening imagery he wants without angering a powerful voting bloc. The problem is, MS 13 is an American homegrown product, which we’ve exported to Central America like so many cars and washing machines. This gang formed in East Los Angeles mainly by youths whose parents migrated as refugees during the U.S.-militarized Salvadoran and Honduran civil

The American problems we export southward only come back to haunt us a thousand-fold in the future.

wars of the 1980s. The gangs formed as these children entered their teens and California conservatives began a campaign to get the migrants out, even if it meant denying them schooling. The youths had nowhere else to go but the streets. The initials MS stand for “mara salvatrucha,” Salvadoran slang that roughly translates into “street-smart ants,” as in swarming marauders. During all the time I covered Central America in the 1980s and ’90s, the only time I encountered MS 13 was in 1998 in Tecun Uman, on Guatemala’s northern border with Mexico. This is where migrants from around the world congregate before running the Mexican gauntlet in hopes of eventually reaching the U.S. border. Second-hand stores have big piles of second-hand American T-shirts, tennis shoes and blue jeans because the well-propagated myth is that it’s easier to blend in on American streets if migrants have a T-shirt that says “I’m with stupid” or “Make America Great Again.”

The migrants are sitting ducks. MS 13 gang members, distinctive for tattoos around their necks that declare in Spanish,“Forgive me, mother, for my crazy life,” also congregate at the border to get back to their homes in East L.A. How did they get there? In 1994, California leaned heavily Republican and hostile to immigrants. Voters approved Proposition 187, one of the harshest state measures ever passed in America to deny schooling and social services to undocumented immigrants. Other get-tough measures included a program of stepped-up deportations for anyone emerging from California prisons without legal status. Thousands of MS 13 gang members, many who spoke minimal Spanish and knew nothing of their parents’ homelands, were dumped on El Salvador and Honduras. They reformed their gangs, hooked up with drug cartels and expanded into a Central American criminal industry. Today, as they rampage through the streets of San Salvador and the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, their reign of terror is prompting tens of thousands of frightened families to flee northward. This is why U.S. border states like Texas experienced a surge in 2014-2015 of tens of thousands of Central American women and unaccompanied youths. In this country, we fool ourselves into thinking our problems will be solved by ostracizing immigrants, shunning their youths and dumping the “bad hombres” on other countries. But the American problems we export southward only come back to haunt us a thousandfold in the future. Trump’s border wall would be no match for MS 13 and the mayhem it sows. But in Trump’s thinking, as long as we have someone to hate, it’ll distract America from the much bigger problem that he can’t so easily address: the violent drug gang criminality that currently plagues American streets. trobberson@post-dispatch.com Twitter: @trobberson 314-340-8382

I was born and raised in north St. Louis in the midst of crime, poverty and violence, and I attended failing schools all throughout my life. Of all the wrong paths I could have taken and saw my childhood friends take, the encouragement of my family and a few fervent teachers kept me on the right track to constantly strive for success. Today, I am a first generation college graduate who was able to make my best decision yet: joining an AmeriCorps program that allowed me to give back to my community like my most impactful teachers had done for me. However, federal funding for AmeriCorps is under threat of elimination. The kids and families of St. Louis need our congressional delegation to stand up for this critical community resource. I joined Teach For America in 2014, after working as a legislative affairs staffer in the Missouri Legislature. That fall, I was hired as a high school social studies teacher at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School, part of St. Louis Public Schools. Today, I am honored to be both a graduate and employee of the district. By entering this role through AmeriCorps, not only do I serve as part of the 2 percent of teachers nationwide who identify as black men, but I also join a network of thousands of other passionate Teach For America corps members and alumni on a mission to address the gaps in educational opportunity and outcomes that disproportionately fall along lines of race and class. Corps members start by teaching for two years in some of our country’s highest-need schools and continue to work from within schools and all the fields that impact them with an enduring commitment to expanding opportunity for every child. Collectively, this year over 80,000 AmeriCorps members have dedicated their lives to serving our most vulnerable citizens and communities. Not only has my journey with Teach For America and AmeriCorps made me a strong leader, it has also impacted the lives of our most precious asset: our children. Society labels my students as “at-risk” because of their racial and economic backgrounds. However, I refer to them as young kings and queens who are “at-promise.” In my classroom, the only thing they are at risk of doing is succeeding. Each day, I create lessons and experiences that cultivate the social, political and cultural consciousness of my students. Last year, I founded Kings of Distinction, a male leadership

organization for ninth-grade students that focuses on leadership development, academic achievement and character building. As I look back and consider the experiences that allowed me to stay on the right path as a child, it was being involved with programs similar to Kings of Distinction and having dedicated teachers and counselors who were members of various AmeriCorps programs, such as Teach For America and the Missouri College Advising Corps. Today, our country needs the dedication, passion and commitment national service members bring to our communities. The last thing Congress should consider is a reduction to funding for AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps funds helped me to transition into the field of education by allowing me to defer payment of my student loans during my twoyear commitment. Additionally, the education award helped to cover the cost for me to pursue a master’s degree in education that allows me to bring innovative and relevant practices into the classroom. National service funding has been to me, like it has for so many others, the supplement that fills the gap between financial constraints and doing what we love to help struggling communities. When many communities are having a hard time meeting their needs, AmeriCorps offers a lowcost, high-return solution that provides services, expands opportunity, develops our workforce and unites the community toward a more prosperous future. Demand from schools and school districts for community partners like Teach For America continues to increase. Were it not for AmeriCorps funding, the organization wouldn’t be able to cultivate its diverse, innovative and committed leaders who work handin-hand with colleagues, families and communities to build excellent schools here in Missouri and across the country. I am thankful for the funding, support and motivation that allow me to give back to the school district and community that has helped me to become the servant leader that I am today. My journey embodies the value of AmeriCorps. I urge Congress to continue to fully fund AmeriCorps, and in doing so, support the growth and opportunities of all Americans.

Site of nightclub massacre to be museum, memorial BY MIKE SCHNEIDER associated Press

ORLANDO, FLA. • The Florida gay nightclub that was the site of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history will become a memorial and museum to comfort the bereaved now and educate future generations about the importance of tolerance, the club’s owner said Thursday. “What began as a place for fun and joy is now sacred ground,” Pulse owner Barbara Poma said at a news conference outside the Orlando nightclub before dozens of oicials, first responders and a handful of victims’ relatives. “What was once our little corner ... is now shared with the world.” Poma ofered few concrete details about what the memorial will look like, how much it will cost and what the timeline will be for building it. But she said the design and content of the memorial will be decided by survivors of the massacre, family members of those killed, first responders, and the doctors and nurses who treated the victims, as well as the greater Orlando community. Forty-nine people were killed in the attack. A survey of questions about how the memorial should be designed and its content already is being formulated, and no deci-

sion has been made on whether the building will be part of the memorial or whether it will be torn down, Poma said. Raising money, arriving at a design and ultimately the construction of the memorial and museum will be the responsibility of the onePULSE Foundation, which Poma founded after the massacre last June 12. On the foundation’s board are members of the LGBT community, including singer Lance Bass and former NBA player Jason Collins. A Hollywood fundraiser was

held last year in California for the foundation, but the board’s chairman wouldn’t say how much was raised. G u n m a n O m a r M a te e n pledged allegiance to Islamic State during the attack at the gay nightclub last June. Mateen was eventually killed by police during a shootout after a three-hour standof. His wife, Noor Salman, is facing charges of aiding and abetting and obstruction in federal court, and she has pleaded not guilty to helping her husband.

Many restaurants, grocers are posting calorie counts despite federal reprieve BY CANDICE CHOI associated Press

NEW YORK • Calorie counts are

popping up on some restaurant menus and for prepared foods at supermarkets, whether you want to see them or not. A federal regulation requiring food sellers to post the nutrition numbers by Friday was postponed again this week until 2018, after years of delays amid opposition from pizza chains, convenience stores and grocers. But many chains had been scrambling to comply, and say they don’t plan to alter course now. “We were running hard toward the Friday deadline,” said Keith Dailey, a spokesman for Kroger, in an email. Kroger Co., which operates chains including Ralph’s and Fry’s, said it plans to be “mostly” compliant by this week. Albertsons, which owns Safeway and Vons, also said shoppers will find

calorie counts for prepared foods such as cut fruit, salads and muffins. The company’s Jewel-Osco chain is also sticking with plans to do so, the Chicago Tribune reported earlier this week. At Whole Foods in New York this week, calorie counts were posted on most hot food and salad bar items, and the chain said it’s still committed to this week’s deadline. While New York City and some other places already require restaurant chains to post calorie counts, the federal rule would make the numbers more widely available and require places like supermarkets and convenience stores to do so as well. It applies to chains with 20 or more locations, and was initially passed in 2010 as part of former President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The National Restaurant Association supports the standard because it wants to avoid a patch-

work of local laws, and because the federal rule includes other establishments that serve food. “The convenience and grocery chains see it as a competitive advantage if we have (calorie information up) and they don’t,” said Dunkin’ Brands CEO Nigel Travis. The company’s chains, Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins, began posting calories nationally last year. Subway also began posting calorie counts last year, saying people were confused by the repeated delays. McDonald’s and Panera had already been doing so, and others have followed suit. But supermarkets and convenience stores say their oferings are far more complicated than traditional restaurants. Pizza chain Domino’s has also been a vocal opponent, and says it should be able to disclose the information online since most orders are not placed in stores.

DIGEST Trump heads home for irst time since Jan. 19 Donald Trump turned his irst trip home as president into a victory lap on Thursday, returning to the city that has largely opposed him while celebrating House passage of legislation undoing much of his predecessor’s health law. Trump only received 18 percent of the vote in New York in November’s presidential election. Multiple modest protests were held across the city during his visit, some visible from the presidential motorcade as it roared past Wall Street. His visit was shorter than expected so that he could commemorate the House vote, the White House eager for a victory after an uneven irst 100 days in oice. Slated to be in Manhattan for a few hours, Trump was not expected to visit Trump Tower and pushed back a meeting with Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull by several hours. He hasn’t set foot in the city since leaving on Jan. 19 for Washington to be inaugurated into oice the following day. Concealed carry approved for Georgia campuses • Gov. Nathan Deal signed legislation Thursday allowing people with permits to carry concealed handguns on Georgia’s public college campuses, despite the objections of state university leaders and his own veto of a campus-carry measure last year. Deal shocked fellow Republicans with the tone of last year’s veto message, which referenced opposition to guns on the University of Virginia campus by Thomas Jeferson and James Madison, and an opinion by the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that described schools as “sensitive places.” The governor signed this year’s version without a public ceremony, explaining Thursday that he was swayed by the addition of sites where concealed handguns won’t be allowed. These include on-campus preschools, faculty oices, disciplinary hearings and areas attended by high school students. Oicer accused of punching teen girl is acquitted • A Minnesota police oicer accused of punching a handcufed 14-year-old girl in the face has been acquitted of assault. A jury in St. Paul took less than 90 minutes Thursday to decide to acquit Michael Soucheray, an eight-year veteran. He remains on leave and still faces an internal afairs investigation. Soucheray was charged with ifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. He and other oicers were called to a shelter for teens Dec. 1 to take a resident to a hospital. Soucheray was

Talks begin to keep U.S. troops in Iraq

ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.S. soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division ire artillery April 17 from their base east of Mosul in support of Iraqi forces ighting Islamic State militants.

Limited presence may help to ward of insurgencies BY QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA AND BRADLEY KLAPPER Associated Press

BAGHDAD • Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is in talks with the Trump administration to keep American troops in Iraq after the fight against Islamic State in the country is concluded, according to U.S. and Iraqi oicials. Both officials underlined that the discussions are ongoing and that nothing is finalized. But the talks point to a consensus by both governments that, in contrast to the U.S. withdrawal in 2011, a longer-term presence of American troops in Iraq is needed to ensure that an insurgency does not bubble up once the militants are driven out. “There is a general understanding on both sides that it would be in the long-term interests of each to have that continued presence. So as for agreement, yes, we both understand it would be mutually beneficial. That we agree on,” the U.S. official said. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

EVOLVING IDEAS The talks involve U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Iraqi officials over “what the long-term U.S. presence would look like,” the American official said, adding that discussions were in early stages. U.S. forces in Iraq would be stationed inside existing Iraqi bases in at least five locations in the Mosul area and along Iraq’s border with Syria, the Iraqi government official said. They would continue to be designated as advisers to dodge the need for parliamentary approval for their presence, he said. He said al-Abadi is looking to install a “modest” Iraqi military pres-

ence in Mosul after the fight against Islamic State is concluded along with a small number of U.S. forces. The forces would help control security in the city and oversee the transition to a political administration of Mosul, he said. The U.S. official emphasized that there were no discussions of creating independent American bases in Iraq, as such a move would require thousands more personnel. He said troop levels would be “several thousand … similar to what we have now, maybe a little more.” Currently, the Pentagon has close to 7,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, many not publicly acknowledged because they are on temporary duty or under specific personnel rules. The forces include troops training Iraqi forces, coordinating airstrikes and ground operations, and special forces operating on the front lines.

MOSUL STRUGGLE The news comes as Iraqi forces are struggling to push extremist fighters out of a cluster of neighborhoods in Mosul that mark the last patch of significant urban terrain the group holds in Iraq, nearly three years after the militants overran nearly a third of the country. Such an agreement would underscore how the fight against the group has drawn the U.S. into a deepening role in Iraq. At the height of the surge of U.S. forces in 2007 to combat sectarian violence that nearly tore Iraq apart, there were about 170,000 American troops in the country. The numbers were wound down eventually to 40,000 before the complete withdrawal in 2011. The U.S. intervention against Islamic State, launched in 2014, was originally cast as an operation that would largely

be fought from the skies with a minimal footprint on Iraqi soil. Nevertheless, that footprint has since grown given Iraqi forces’ need for support. During a visit to Iraq in February, Mattis and Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, described an enduring partnership between the U.S. and Iraq. “I imagine we’ll be in this fight for a while and we’ll stand by each other,” Mattis said. Townsend declined to say how long the U.S. will stay in Iraq. But, he said, “I don’t anticipate that we’ll be asked to leave by the government of Iraq immediately after Mosul.” He added, “I think that the government of Iraq realizes their very complex fight, and they’re going to need the assistance of the coalition even beyond Mosul.”

IRAN’S CONCERNS The talks over a longerterm U.S. presence have greatly concerned Iran, which in turn is increasing support to some of Iraq’s Shiite militia forces, said Jafar al-Husseini, a representative from Kataib Hezbollah, an Iraqi Shiite militia group with close ties to Iran. “Iraq’s security forces and the Popular Mobilization Forces (mostly Shiite militia groups) have the ability to protect internal roads and borders, so why is al-Abadi using American security partners?” al-Hussein asked. Al-Abadi has struggled to balance Iraq’s dependence on the U.S. and Iran. Both are key security and economic partners, yet are often at odds. Over the nearly threeyear fight against the militants, Iraqi forces backed by the U.S.-led coalition have retaken some 65 percent of the territory the extremists once held in the country, according to the U.S.-led coalition.

DIGEST 8 sentenced to jail in Olympic attack plot A judge in Brazil on Thursday sentenced eight men for planning an attack leading up to the 2016 Summer Olympics, marking the irst time that a much debated anti-terrorism law formed the basis of a case in Latin America’s largest nation. Federal Judge Marcos Josegrei da Silva sentenced the men to between six and 15 years in prison. The harshest penalty went to Leonid El Kadre, 33, who authorities said was the group’s leader. He got 15 years and 10 months. Zaine el Kadri, El Kadre’s mother and lawyer, said the ruling didn’t prove that her son committed a crime. The case against them is the irst to test a 2016 law that widened the scope of what could be considered terrorism in Latin America’s largest nation. Musician’s death prompts rebuke in Venezuela • Classical music maestro Gustavo Dudamel has spoken out against the Venezuelan government he has long performed for, calling on President Nicolas Maduro to heed protesters who have taken to streets by the millions against his socialist government. In an online essay titled “I Raise My Voice,” Dudamel urged Maduro to reduce political tension that has left 37 people dead amid daily, sometimes-violent demonstrations. Dudamel’s rebuke followed the death of musician Armando Canizales, 17, during a demonstration Wednesday. Venezuelans and classical music performers have blasted Dudamel in the past for being cozy with Maduro, who protesters blame for an economic collapse.

that left four soldiers and six attackers dead, the military said Thursday. The confrontations late Wednesday in the central state of Puebla marked an escalation of conlicts in which fuel thieves have taken control of towns in the so-called “Red Triangle” area east of Mexico City. The army called for reinforcements and about 1,000 troops and police were sent in. Arrests made in accidental killing of Somali leader • Three soldiers have been arrested in the killing of a Somalia government minister near the presidential palace, police said Thursday. Police spokesman Qaasim Ahmed conirmed the arrests as an inquiry continued into circumstances around the shooting, which appeared to be accidental. Police have said bodyguards for Somalia’s auditor general Nur Farah shot dead the public works and reconstruction minister, Abbas Abdullahi, on Wednesday. The car carrying the minister had been trailing the car carrying the auditor general, prompting his bodyguards to open ire. Somalia’s prime minister on Thursday ired the auditor general over the incident. ‘De-escalation zones’ created for Syria • Russia, Iran and Turkey agreed to establish “de-escalation zones” in Syria, signing on to a Russian plan under which President Bashar Assad’s air force would halt lights over designated areas across the war-torn country. The agreement, which a Russian delegate said would go into efect on Saturday, is the latest attempt to reduce violence in the Arab country.

Fake news, hacking arrest hike France’s election fears Investigation begun ahead of Sunday’s vote; allegation based on apparent forgery cited in 2 candidates’ debate ASSOCIATED PRESS

A L B I , F R A N C E • Allegations of fake news and hacking attempts dominated France’s tense presidential campaign on Thursday, with just two days left for independent Emmanuel Macron and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen to win over voters before this weekend’s highstakes runof. Pa r i s p rose c u to rs launched a preliminary investigation into whether fake news is being used to influence Sunday’s vote, as front-runner Macron and populist Le Pen rallied thousands at their last big campaign events — in opposite parts of the divided country. There has been intense anxiety in France over the

possibility that viral misinformation or hackers could attempt to influence the presidential vote, as in the U.S. election last year. Those fears have largely failed to materialize. Then on Thursday, Macron’s campaign filed suit against an unknown source “X” after Le Pen suggested during their only one-onone debate that the former banker could have an offshore account. “I hope we won’t find out you have an offshore account in the Bahamas,” Le Pen said during the tense prime-time showdown Wednesday night. She appeared to be referring to two sets of apparent forgeries, published just hours earlier, that purported to show Macron was somehow involved

with a Caribbean bank and a firm based on the island of Nevis. Macron’s camp said the former investment banker was the victim of a “cyber-misinformation cam-

paign.” Speaking on France Inter radio, Macron blamed Le Pen for spreading “fake news” and said he never held a bank account “in any tax haven whatsoever.” “All this is factually in-

Thursday, the campaign gave few details about the seriousness of the interference. Police referred questions to prosecutors, who wouldn’t comment.

Starting this summer, if a Missourian with Anthem insurance shows up at an emergency room with a minor ailment such as a common cold that could have been treated at an urgent care center, the patient will be on the hook for the entire bill. Anthem, the nation’s second-largest insurer and one of two companies still providing coverage on the state’s Obamacare exchange, has cited increasing costs related to inappropriate ER use as a need for tough stance on payment.

Many homeowners think it makes intuitive sense to lock in today’s low interest rates for as long as they can. A few corporations also have obtained very-long-term financing, with Norfolk Southern issuing a 100-year bond in 2010. Why shouldn’t Uncle Sam do the same? You’d think the world’s most voracious borrower might want to lock in money for 50 or 100 Mnuchin years, especially since there’s little chance we’ll be paying down the national debt anytime soon. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is keen on the idea. He mentioned it in November, and said this week that ultra-long borrowing “absolutely makes sense.” Mnuchin’s buddies on Wall Street aren’t so enthusiastic. A Treasury advisory committee, composed of 16 senior executives of investment firms, issued a letter describing “little evidence of strong or sustainable demand for See NICKLAUS • Page B4

As the United States adapts to the presidency of Donald Trump and faces rising tension abroad, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. shareholders will descend on Omaha, Neb., this weekend seeking reassurance from Warren Bufett. The weekend known as “Woodstock for Capitalists” is unique in corporate America, a celebration of the billionaire’s image and suc-

Bufett, 86, and vice chairman Charlie Munger, 93, will answer five hours of questions at Saturday’s annual meeting.

Developer demolishing eyesore hotel near airport BY JACOB BARKER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

BRIDGETON • A vacant hotel near St. Louis Lambert International Airport that residents have complained about for years is finally coming down.

Demolition is underway on the former STL Hotel at Lindbergh Boulevard and Natural Bridge Road, removing an eyesore that the city considered tearing down only a few years earlier. The building was also once a Ramada Inn. The Texas developer behind

the project initially plans airport parking and possibly a new hotel and retail in future phases. “We’re hopeful eventually it will turn into something where it’s generating some revenue for the city,” Bridgeton Mayor Terry Briggs said.

Developer Tracy Suttles of the Houston area is behind the project. He said demolition should be complete this summer and work should start on a parking lot after that. He has an option for the site that he See HOTEL • Page B4

New club could hike services, revenue at airport BY MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A limited-access club not tied to a particular airline could open in St. Louis Lambert International Airport’s east terminal as soon as November. The city Airport Commission voted Wednesday to endorse Airport Terminal Services’ bid to operate the so-called “common-use club.” The deal guarantees that Lambert would get at least $3.45 million in revenue over 10 years. That was the highest of three bids submitted. Airport Director Rhonda HammNiebruegge said the facility, to be called

Wingtips, would fill a long-standing void in the east terminal, which Lambert now calls terminal 2. The club, which still needs approval by city aldermen and the city Board of Estimate and Apportionment, would provide passengers a quiet place to work, socialize, eat and drink. American Airlines operates a similar facility, the Admirals Club, in Lambert’s main terminal 1. Hamm-Niebruegge said operating such clubs is not part of the business model for Southwest Airlines, the only carrier currently using the east terminal. Airport Terminal Services currently op-

erates “common-use” clubs at airports in New York and Detroit. The company’s president, Sally Leible, said many people using the clubs do so through corporate memberships sold on an annual basis. She added holders of certain “high-end credit cards” would have access to the club here, which would be part of a network of similar airport lounges around the world. She also said people could pay admission to get in. She said the going rate at such facilities “is in the $50 range.” The company, based in Maryland Heights, already has contracts to provide other services at Lambert and other airports across the country.

A proposal to build over 60 town homes on a vacant industrial site in Lafayette Square is dead after Pulte Group announced it would leave the St. Louis market. The Atlanta-based homebuilder said it will finish building out its remaining projects. But a spokeswoman said in an email that it does not “plan to invest in any future land acquisition activities, including the Lafayette development.” “Following a detailed review of our competitive position, we have determined that the market dynamics are not conducive to running a return focused business, which is a top priority for the company,” according to an a statement from Pulte. “We will continue to sell and build houses to finish out all of our nine actively selling communities — with half of those already nearing closeout — which we expect to be through December 2018.” Pulte Group, with local oices in Chesterfield, is one of the larger homebuilders in the region. It has 23 local employees, and it said a majority will continue to be employed through 2018. Employees will receive severance packages and a “customer care” team will stay in the market to address warranty and other issues from customers who bought homes from the company. A recent plan from the company had envisioned 62 town homes on a four-acre site on Chouteau Avenue where a factory exploded in 2005. The site is still owned by Praxair Distribution Inc., the industrial gas company whose building was destroyed by explosions that rocked the historic neighborhood. Some neighbors and Alderman Christine Ingrassia supported the development, but many residents of the area opposed the plan, leading to multiple hearings at the city’s Historic Preservation Commission. The project finally won preliminary approval from the commission last week after hours of discussion. Now, it looks as if it will be only the latest plan for the site to fall apart.

Productivity declined at an annual rate of 0.6 percent in the JanuaryMarch quarter after rising at a 1.8 percent rate in the fourth quarter, the Labor Department reported Thursday. It was the biggest decline since a 0.7 percent rate of decline in the irst quarter of last year. Labor costs rose at a 3 percent rate, up from a 1.3 percent rate of increase in the fourth quarter.

Jobless claims fell by 19,000 • New applications for U.S. jobless beneits fell sharply last week, pointing to a tightening labor market that could allow the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates next month. Initial claims for state unemployment beneits dropped 19,000 to a seasonally adjusted 238,000 for the week ended April 29, the Labor Department said Thursday. The decline unwound most of the prior two weeks’ increases, which economists had blamed on volatility arising from the diferent timings of the Easter holidays and spring breaks. Jobless claims have now been below 300,000, a threshold associated with a healthy labor market, for 113 straight weeks. That is the longest such stretch since 1970, when the labor market was smaller. Overall, 1.96 million Americans are collecting unemployment beneits, down 8.1 percent from a year ago. U.S. trade deicit narrows in March • The U.S. trade deicit narrowed in March to the lowest level since October as both exports and imports fell. But the politically sensitive trade gap with China rose. The Commerce Department said Thursday that the gap in goods and services slipped to $43.7 billion, down from $43.8 billion in February. Exports dropped 0.9 percent to $191 billion, pulled down by falling auto exports. Imports fell 0.7 percent $234.7 billion as imports of crude oil and other petroleum products slid. The trade deicit in goods with China rose 7 percent to $24.6 billion in March from $23 billion in February on rising imports of Chinese cellphones and telecommunications equipment.

Markets end day mixed as energy stocks tumble REUTERS

NEW YORK • Wall Street

ended flat on Thursday as a steep fall for the energy sector countered some solid earnings reports, with major stock indexes closing little changed after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a health care overhaul. The House on Thursday afternoon narrowly voted to repeal major portions of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, and replace it with a Republican health care plan, sending it to the Senate for consideration. The bill’s passage comes after House Republicans pulled health care legislation earlier this year in a setback, raising questions among investors about President Donald Trump’s ability to enact his agenda. The benchmark S&P 500 has gained 11.7 percent since Trump’s election, fueled by his plans for tax cuts, infrastructure spending and deregulation. “The real risk in the near term to the so-called Trump rally was a failure to pass it,” said Rick Meckler, president of LibertyView Capital Management in Jersey City, N.J. “I don’t know if this market is really that focused on health care as the big issue,” Meckler said. “I think they’re really focused on the tax plan. If they couldn’t pass the health care [plan], it would bode very poorly for

the tax plan.” The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.43 points, or 0.03 percent, to 20,951.47, the S&P 500 gained 1.39 points, or 0.06 percent, to 2,389.52 and the Nasdaq Composite added 2.79 points, or 0.05 percent, to 6,075.34. The energy sector dropped 1.9 percent, easily the worst performing group. Exxon Mobil’s 1.3 percent decline and Chevron’s 1.8 percent drop weighed on the S&P. Oil prices tumbled about 5 percent on signs that OPEC and other producing countries would not take more drastic steps to reduce the world’s stubbornly persistent glut of crude. Investors also were digesting the Federal Reserve’s statement on Wednesday. The central bank left rates unchanged but played down weak first-quarter economic growth while emphasizing the strong labor market, in a sign it was still on track for two more rate rises this year. Focus was turning to Friday’s U.S. employment report as the next gauge of the economy and labor market. “It’s going to be particularly important to see if we get the expected rebound in job gains,” given that the Fed discounted the first quarter growth weakness because of a projected recovery, said Alan Gayle, director of asset allocation at RidgeWorth Investments in Atlanta.

Europe beer sales rising for A-B InBev, others Emphasis on pricier brews paying of for industry leaders BLOOMBERG

A rebounding European beer market is buoying Anheuser-Busch InBev and Carlsberg, lifting demand for mainstream brands such as Stella Artois and Tuborg. The U.K. return of A-B InBev’s Bud Light, the pale lager that’s losing market share in the U.S., is fueling sales in western Europe, while Carlsberg’s low-alcohol beer brand Nordic is driving sales in Scandinavia, the companies said separately on Thursday. “Europe is definitely picking up for all the beverage alcohol companies as consumer spending is starting to rise in most of the region,” said Trevor Stirling, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein. A surge in euro-area economic confidence to the highest in almost a decade stokes beer sales and offers brewers more pricing power, Stirling said. A-B InBev, the world’s largest brewer, and Danish rival Carlsberg joined Heineken NV in surprising the market with first-quarter results that beat estimates after headwinds in Latin America

and Eastern Europe hurt performance through most of last year. Carlsberg’s focus on more expensive beers such as Grimbergen paid off in France and Italy. Sales volume of the Belgian brew rose 25 percent in the quarter. “We’re really stepping up the distribution in France, Switzerland, Denmark and Italy,” Carlsberg Chief Executive Officer Cees ‘t Hart said by phone, caution-

plans to exercise soon, he said, and he hopes to start construction on two hotels at the site in the first quarter of 2018. Negotiations with hotel operators are ongoing, he said. “We think a newer hotel in that location would do very well,” Suttles said, adding that many of those around the airport are “aged and dated.” In future phases, he hopes to build space for eating establishments. “We think there’s a huge need for restaurants in that location.” The site has been closed for at least five years. Business dried up after Lambert expanded and access to the property from Lindbergh was cut of. Since then, the vacant property has attracted vagrants and was stripped of valuables by looters. Suttles brushed off the lack of access to Lindbergh. With good signage and GPS, today’s travelers shouldn’t have trouble finding the property entrance, he said. St. Louis County is ofering to chip in to help with the demolition, which was complicated due to asbestos in some of the buildings. The county’s Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority last week authorized a $293,000 loan from its Brownfield Cleanup Revolving Loan Fund, which received $1 million in grant money from the Environmental Protection Agency to operate the loan fund. Staf from the St. Louis Economic Development partnership, which operates the county LCRA, said the total cost to re-

mediate the site is expected to be about $1 million. Some board members were concerned about making the five-year loan, though. “It just looks a little tight to me,” said St. Louis County LCRA board member Jack Kirkland. St. Louis Partnership general counsel Dustin Allison acknowledged Suttles had a “ding” on his credit. Suttles filed for bankruptcy in February 2013 and was discharged in June of that year, according to court documents. Suttles said the bankruptcy filing “was a long time ago.” Allison said the loan was put through a “totally objective underwriting process.” Suttles will have to personally guarantee the loan and the LCRA will take a second lien on the property. The LCRA will charge 5.95 percent interest. “This interest rate is several hundred basis points higher than we have applied in other loans, and that is a reflection of the credit risk,” Allison added. There are no other applicants right now that the Partnership knows about that would qualify for the Brownfield loans, Allison said, and regardless of what happens, “there is a dirty building that no one else is doing anything with that will get remediated.” Briggs echoed that sentiment. Whatever happens with the developer’s “ambitious” plans, he said, “at least we’re getting the buildings knocked down.” Jacob Barker • 314-340-8291 @jacobbarker on Twitter jbarker@post-dispatch.com

Longer term, higher interest NICKLAUS • FROM B1

ultra-longs in the U.S. markets.” Pension funds and insurance companies, the committee said, have little appetite for anything beyond 30 years, the longest bond the Treasury now issues. Brian Rehling, co-head of fixed-income strategy at Wells Fargo Investment Institute, figures any move to issue 50-year bonds will be more symbolic than substantial. “There is some demand out there, but I don’t know that there is a tremendous amount of demand,” Rehling said. “They could get some nice headlines out of it, but they can’t do it in a size that would be likely to move the needle.” Budget considerations are paramount in Washington, and a move to issue 50-year debt would cost more in the short run. That’s because of the term premium: The longer the bond, the higher the interest rate. The 30-year bond yields 3 percent today; replacing some of them with 50-year bonds might cost somewhere between 3.1 percent and 3.5 percent. “In the near term, those extra costs make your budget numbers look not quite as good,” Rehling said. “That’s why the government issues largely short-term debt, because it’s the cheapest.” In fact, roughly half of all marketable Treasury securities mature in three years or less. By contrast, countries including Canada, Britain and France

have issued 50-year bonds. Ireland and Belgium sold 100-year bonds last year. The only way those nations will look foolish is if rates fall further and stay low for decades. If you buy the secular stagnation theory that is being touted by some economists, including former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, that’s a real possibility. The homeowner with an adjustable-rate mortgage, in fact, has made a good bet over the last few years. Thirty-year borrowers bought peace of mind, but at the cost of higher monthly payments. Advocates of ultra-long Treasury bonds essentially are saying that taxpayers could use some peace of mind, too. “They should be locking in rates before they rise,” says Richard Ryffel, senior lecturer in finance at Washington University’s Olin Business School. “It makes infinite sense.” Ryffel, who has advised state and local governments on bond issues, says he would be telling such borrowers now to “go as long as possible, because interest rates are low and you want to limit your risk.” That seems to be Mnuchin’s message too. After getting a cool reception from Wall Street, though, the Treasury secretary may be limited to issuing a small, symbolic amount of 50-year bonds and hoping for the best.

ing that “growth at these high levels is of course diicult to continue.” Beyond its Stella Artois and Corona, which posted sales growth of 21 percent and 18 percent respectively, A-B InBev is also seeking to ramp up sales of more expensive beers in developed markets. On Wednesday, the Leuven, Belgium-based company announced it’s acquiring North Carolina’s Wicked Weed Brewing, which

will join a stable of so-called craft brands that includes Karbach Brewing in Texas, Devils Backbone in Virginia and Breckenridge Brewery in Colorado. The U.S. beer industry is “progressing towards a better place” after years of stagnation, Chief Financial Oicer Felipe Dutra told reporters, and Brazil should pick up this year. Carlsberg expects revenue to grow faster than volume this year, helped by pricing power, ‘t Hart said. The beermakers reported first-quarter revenue growth of 3.7 percent for A-B InBev and 4 percent for Carlsberg, exceeding the 2.8 percent revenue growth analysts were expecting for each company. Sales declines in previous years had spurred intense consolidation, which culminated in A-B InBev’s $103 billion takeover of rival SABMiller in the industry’s largest-ever deal. The maker of Budweiser is cutting more than 5,500 jobs as it aims to capture $2 billion in cost savings from its acquisition of SABMiller in the next three to four years. The company reiterated its forecast that total revenue growth will accelerate in 2017. Sales rose 2.4 percent last year, held back by the recession in Brazil. A-B InBev’s adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization rose 5.8 percent to $4.81 billion in the first quarter. Analysts expected 3.8 percent growth. Earnings climbed 12 percent excluding Brazil.

Area could gain 190 assisted living beds Developers plan three projects BY SAMANTHA LISS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Developers are seeking approval to build separate assisted living facilities in the St. Louis area, representing a total investment of $25.2 million, according to three applications submitted this week to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The developers are seeking approval from state health regulators to expand existing facilities or build new facilities

to make way for more beds to house seniors requiring more care. The proposed projects are: • 206 North Main Street in O’Fallon, Mo. Mount Carmel Senior Living plans to build a $6.4 million, 32-bed assisted living facility on its campus that already has independent living and skilled nursing facilities. With approval, the new facility would be open in October 2018 and would encompass 25,000 square feet. • Clarendale of St. Peters. Developers based in Naperville, Ill., are seeking to build a 110bed, $12.5 million assisted living facility at the southeast

corner of Mexico Road and Dubray Drive in St. Peters. The project will be part of a larger complex for seniors that will be on an 11.4-acre site that’s part of the Bellemeade subdivision. The project is expected to be complete in the spring of 2019. • The Woodlands of Arnold is seeking to expand on its 25-acre campus. The complex wants to build a 48-bed, 27,000-square-foot assisted living facility consisting of all private suites. The Woodlands of Arnold campus is near Interstate 55 and Highway 141. If approved, the $6.3 million project is expected to be complete in 2018.

Some ER trips may not be covered ANTHEM • FROM B1

The company, which last week reported a big jump in quarterly profits, has begun notifying its Missouri members and hospitals throughout the state about the change. “Should members choose to receive non-emergency care in the ED [emergency department], they will be responsible for the charges incurred,” the letter states, according to a copy that was shared with the PostDispatch by the Missouri Hospital Association. The letter says minor conditions include sore throat, rash, mild fever, eye or ear pain and that can be “safely treated in less acute facilities.” Hospital officials are concerned over a decision they say may put patients at risk. “It seems like a dangerous thing to do,” Dave Dillon, spokesman for the Missouri Hospital Association, told the Post-Dispatch Wednesday. “Every Missourian benefits from appropriate ED use. Inappropriate use drives up cost for all and leads to overcrowding. However, not every venue of care is available 24/7, and not every Missourian is in a position to judge whether they are having a heart attack or acid reflux, which can mimic a heart attack,” Dillon said. But Anthem said their approach is more nuanced than

that and there are exceptions to the new rule. • ER services for children under the age of 14 will always be covered regardless of the reason for the visit. • If there isn’t an urgent care within 15 miles of the patient, ER payments will be covered by Anthem. • If a patient was directed to the emergency room by another physician, it will be covered. • Any visit that occurs on a Sunday or major holiday will be covered. Anthem said it had to act to change members’ behavior when it comes to accessing the emergency room. “We’ve had an increase over time in emergency room utilization rates and we have been working on trying to reverse that trend,” Dr. Jay Moore, chief medical officer for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in Missouri, told the Post-Dispatch Wednesday. Moore said they’ve increasingly seen members go to the emergency room for colds and urinary tract infections. As employers have seen their health care costs increase, Anthem has faced pressure to curb those expenditures and this is an area in need of change, he said. Missouri is the third state in which Anthem has started enforcing this policy. Moore said the policy is already part of

members’ coverage contracts, but it was never enforced. ER usage rates have decreased for Anthem in Kentucky and Virginia where the practice was already rolled out. Moore said Anthem is trying to be as transparent as possible with its Missouri members. It says it has talked to the Missouri Department of Insurance about the policy, and it has started notifying employers. The company has also sent letters to Anthem’s Missouri members and health care providers. Federal law requires hospitals with emergency departments to screen and stabilize patients regardless of their ability to pay. But Moore, a former hospital administrator, says the ER is not legally required to treat a patient who isn’t experiencing an emergency and can instead encourage the patient to go elsewhere. Aetna, which does business as Coventry in Missouri, said it covers services provided in an ER if the member is experiencing an emergency. If a Coventry member is not experiencing an emergency, coverage of services will be denied, a spokesman for the company said. UnitedHealthcare did not respond to a request for comment.

Investments, succession will likely be discussed BUFFETT • FROM B1

“Watching someone like (Bufett) with strong command on details of the economy and Berkshire’s operations is very impressive,” said Meyer Shields, a Keefe, Bruyette & Woods analyst who rates Berkshire “market perform.” “But you’re not going to learn a lot about Berkshire Hathaway, the company.” Last year’s attendance fell to about 37,000 from more than 40,000 a year earlier. But there were also 1.1 million real-time sign-ons to Yahoo Finance, which webcast the meeting for the first time. It will do so again, in English and Mandarin.

‘LARGE, LARGE ORGANIZATION’ Much of Berkshire’s relative outperformance came decades ago when it was much smaller, and even Bufett has called the company’s huge size an “anchor on investment performance.” Bufett has said Berkshire owns 10 businesses big enough to make the Fortune 500 list of large U.S. companies on their own. But details can be thin. For example, aircraft parts maker Precision Castparts, acquired last year for $32.1 billion, merited about a page in Berkshire’s annual report. Precision’s final annual report, in 2015, ran 87 pages. “It’s a large, large organization,” said Jefrey Stacey, founder of Stacey Muirhead Capital Management in Waterloo, Ontario, who is attending his 26th straight meeting. “I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt because the track record has been so good for so long.” Buffett said in February that boosting disclosure could put many Berkshire businesses at a disadvantage, and that “it’s the growth of the Berkshire forest that counts.”

Ian Bless of Omaha, Neb., waxes a statue, part of an installation titled “Illumina” by sculptor Matthew Placzek, on Thursday in front of the CenturyLink Center in Omaha. The annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting will take place there over the weekend.

He also knows the perils of conglomerates, saying in 2015 that dubious accounting, self-promotion and mediocre businesses make them “richly deserve” their “terrible” reputation. Buffett says Berkshire is different, in part because he took Munger’s advice to buy wonderful businesses at fair prices. Shareholders enjoy that focus less than they once did. Berkshire’s share price has slightly lagged behind the Standard & Poor’s 500, including dividends during the eight-year bull market, but has outperformed it since

the global financial crisis mushroomed in September 2008. Shields, who is not attending Saturday’s meeting, wants Buffett to reveal more, even if shareholders can “safely assume” his eventual successor as chief executive is top-flight.

ISSUES APLENTY While Bufett and Munger do not know in advance the questions they will get from shareholders, journalists and analysts at Saturday’s meeting, they can anticipate many.

Coal output, employment rising in West Virginia Signing bonuses, raises are back for busy miners BY TIM LOH Bloomberg

Before dawn, coal miner Cameron Justice stopped at a gas station in Mingo County, W.Va., grabbing two cans of Monster Energy drink before heading into the pits. He could use the jolt. The barrelchested 37-year-old works six shifts a week at the Ruby Energy mine in the heart of U.S. coal country. Last year, he was lucky to get four. “We’re booming,” Justice said. “This is the biggest upswing I’ve seen in five years. Everyone’s excited.” Like a mountain stream reviving after a drought, money is trickling into Appalachia again — at least, for now. It begins with a trio of global forces: Chinese production curbs, President Donald Trump’s anti-regulatory policies and investor bets that have, over the last year, doubled the market value of publicly traded U.S. coal companies to $15 billion. It ends in cities such as Logan, population 1,800, where streets that once bustled with small businesses are now blighted with shuttered stores, boarded-up windows and sidewalks laced with cracks. The gossip here is no longer about mine closures and mass layoffs. Miners are snagging $1,000 signing bonuses, fully paid health insurance and raises again. (Justice just earned a 50-cent-an-hour bump.) At the gas station where Justice stopped for breakfast, business was up 15 percent in the last couple of months alone. Owner Isom Ooten has extended store hours after cutting back just last year. “Coal in our counties is number one, I don’t care what they say,” Ooten said. “I want the economy to come back.” Southern West Virginia has much ground to make up. Large, out-of-state companies built camps for workers generations ago that grew into thriving towns now near collapse. About 34,000 people live in Logan County, less than half the number in 1950. Along with its neighboring counties, it

leads the nation in fatal prescription painkiller overdoses. From 2008 to 2016, production from West Virginia’s southern coalfields fell from 117 million tons to 36.6 million, according to the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration. Cheap natural gas, which became America’s dominant power-plant fuel, spurred the collapse. The industry rout drove some of the country’s biggest miners, including Alpha Natural Resources Inc., which runs the Ruby Energy facility, and Arch Coal Inc., into bankruptcy. Now, the trend is reversing. Through mid-April, coal output rose 9 percent in southern West Virginia compared to a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That’s because prices tripled over the last year for metallurgical coal, which is used in steel-making and is hard to find elsewhere in North America. China touched off the rally in 2016 when it curbed production. In late March, a cyclone hammered Australia’s coast, disrupting global supplies and making U.S. coal even more valuable. Wall Street took notice. Randall Atkins, chairman of coal company Ramaco Resources Inc., recalled bankers coming to him last fall “on bended knee,” begging him to take his company public. In February, Ramaco, backed by private equity funds Energy Capital Partners and Yorktown Partners, held the U.S. coal industry’s first IPO in two years. Warrior Met Coal Inc., whose largest investor is Apollo Global Management, followed suit in April. The two companies raised half a billion dollars. Coronado Coal, part of Energy & Minerals Group’s portfolio, may be next. “Mainstream investors are now looking at coal again,” said Jeremy Sussman, a New York-based mining analyst with Clarksons Platou Securities Inc. “Six months ago, that wasn’t the case.” Elk Creek, a new Ramaco mine in Logan County, will reach full production this summer. When the company held a job fair there in March to fill about 40 spots, more than 850 people showed up. Boom and bust are familiar features of the coal business, and locals are still cau-

tious. Scott Skeen has seen orders rise 40 percent this year at his company, Logan Hydraulics. His staf of two probably won’t be able to handle all the work, but he wasn’t expanding yet. “Since Trump got in, things are trying to rebound,” he said. “Hopefully, I’ll hire more people real soon.” Not everyone is so bullish. In downtown Logan, Michael Cline hasn’t seen an uptick in traic at Hot Cup, his cofee shop. The son of a coal miner, Cline recalled a childhood standing with his dad in tense picket lines. Today, the pony-tailed Bernie Sanders supporter is convinced that Logan must diversify its economy or turn into a ghost town in the next downturn. He’s wary of out-of-state corporations. “They’re just finding investors who buy into Donald Trump’s empty promises,” he said. “It’s just Monopoly money. It’s going to go bust, and we’ll be even worse of.” Paul Lang, president of Creve Coeurbased Arch Coal — the second-biggest U.S. producer by tonnage — recently offered a presentation on the industry’s future. He addressed a dinner for the Tug Valley Mining Institute, the oldest such industry organization in the state. Lang outlined how Trump can help the industry by easing regulations and promoting infrastructure spending. But he’s no Pollyanna. China, more than Trump, spurred this revival, he said, and natural gas will continue to be the fuel of choice for more U.S. power plants. “Why did Logan County get hit so hard? The answer’s right there,” Lang said, showing a chart depicting gas’s rise and coal’s collapse. “It’s going to be hard to bring that back.”

Bufett may need to review Berkshire’s support of Wells Fargo & Co., in which it holds a roughly 10 percent stake, despite a sales scandal over bogus customer accounts.

Radio giant IHeartMedia is mired in debt REUTERS

IHeartMedia Inc., the largest owner of U.S. radio stations, said Thursday it may not be able to continue as a going concern. IHeartMedia, which said it has more than a quarter of a billion monthly radio listeners in the United States, is struggling to find a solution that would significantly slash its debt pile outside of bankruptcy court.

IHeartMedia indicated in a regulatory filing on April 20 that it would issue a going concern warning. IHeart, formerly known as Clear Channel Communications Inc., was taken over by private equity firms BainCapital LLC and Thomas H.

Huge crops, proit pressure signal woes for grain irms BY KARL PLUME reuters

CHICAGO • In the face of a global grain

glut that is crushing profits and raising questions about long-term prospects for the world’s big grain merchants, the companies maintain they need only a drought or other supply shock to return to the riches of the past. But a two-day rout on Wall Street earlier this week for two of the industry’s biggest firms — Archer Daniels Midland Co. and Bunge Ltd. — underscores concerns that poor recent profits may be more than just a leg of a cyclical downturn and instead point to fundamental change. ADM on Tuesday warned investors it was downgrading its expected return on invested capital — a key performance metric — by a full percentage point, to a projected 9 percent annual rate of return. On Wednesday, Bunge reported an 82 percent drop in first-quarter earnings and lowered its profit outlook for its unit that trades grain and oilseeds. It also reduced its budget for 2017 capital expenditures by $50 million, roughly a 7 percent cut, prompting concerns about a possible decline in cash flow. Spooked investors sent shares of White Plains, N.Y.-based Bunge down more than 11 percent on the news on Wednesday, the steepest drop in 15 months. The prior day, ADM shares posted their biggest drop in eight years, down 8.9 percent to $41.67, with further losses on Wednesday. Bunge and ADM shares closed up 4.1 percent and 2.6 percent, respectively, on Thursday. Soren Schroder, Bunge’s chief executive, told Reuters the dour outlook is as impermanent as weather. “All we really need for this to change is three weeks of hot and dry weather in the Midwest in July and the same in August and you’re back to markets that don’t have enough. It can change quickly,” Schroder said. But investors are beginning to fear the good times may not return for the global grain giants known as the ABCDs, a group that in addition to ADM and Bunge also includes privately held Cargill Inc. and Netherlands-based Louis Dreyfus Corp. All of the ABCDs — which move corn, soybeans and other crops from regions of surplus to areas of tight supply — have struggled to profit from their core grain

trading businesses lately. With grain busting out of storage bins all around the world, the big grain merchants have fewer opportunities to capitalize on “dislocation” of supplies, the companies say. “Everybody is wondering if there’s some fundamental issue across the board for these grain processors,” said Brett Wong, senior research analyst with Piper Jafray & Co.

FARMERS HOLDING TIGHT Grain markets are notoriously cyclical, but some industry participants and observers say some of the changes are more permanent, making the industry ripe for consolidation. “There’s plenty of room to consolidate. And we’re happy to participate and ... can lead it,” Bunge’s Schroder told analysts in a conference call on Tuesday. Farmers have invested heavily in new storage, making them less reliant on the grain elevators operated by the trading houses, and the Internet has empowered farmers with information that makes them much smarter about marketing their grain. Mike Boland, an agricultural economics professor at the University of Minnesota, said farmers increasingly are cutting out the grain handlers altogether, selling directly to ethanol plants and other end users. “The grain trading companies may never get their hands on those bushels to move it along,” Boland said. ADM, Bunge and others are caught between farmers who do not want to sell crops at low prices and end users, such as food companies, hunting for bargains amidst global oversupply, said Gary Blumenthal, chief executive for World Perspectives, a Washington-based agricultural consultancy. “The ABCDs are caught in the middle,” Blumenthal said. ADM’s agricultural services division, which has seen turnover in the executive ranks, this quarter reported its third quarterly loss in international grain merchandising in five quarters. “We cannot help but wonder if ag services faces a structural challenge with the balance of power shifting to farmers and ADM’s more limited approach to capitalize on intellectual capital in the ag markets,” BMO Capital Markets analyst Kenneth Zaslow said in a note to clients.

Peacock moves up from board SCHNUCKS • FROM B1

2012, after joining the brewing company in 1992. He had served on Schnucks’ Advisory Board since July 2013, but the company said he will leave that role because of his new position. The announcement follows two years for Peacock in which he was better known for his role in trying to improve St. Louis’ image as a sports town. Former Gov. Jay Nixon made Peacock co-chairman of the task force to keep the Rams of the National Football League from leaving, an effort that eventually failed in January 2016 when other team owners voted to let the Rams leave for Los Angeles. The day after that vote, Peacock was in Boston attending a basketball game with Celtics minority owner Paul Edgerley, who eventually became the lead investor in a local ownership group to attract a Major League Soccer team. Peacock would also be an investor and one of the public faces behind that efort. But in April of this year city voters rejected $60 million in public financing for a new soccer stadium, scuttling the investor group’s plans. No secondary

option for funding the $150 million to $200 million stadium has emerged, and investors have repeatedly said they’re moving on with other business ventures. Peacock remains chairman of the St. Louis Sports Commission. Peacock’s Vitaligent LLC owns 78 Jamba Juice stores in Northern California and Missouri. Vitaligent has reported $61 million in sales and is Jamba Juice’s largest franchisee. Peacock is also an investor in Crushed Red, a fast-casual restaurant with locations in St. Louis, Denver, Columbia and Kansas City. The position Peacock fills had been vacant since 2015, when Schnucks’ thenpresident Anthony Hucker was fired. Hucker later sued the grocery chain alleging he was terminated without cause after he was ofered the CEO job at SaveA-Lot. “Dave’s entrepreneurial spirit, vision and drive, along with his extensive business background will help us set a strong course for the future,” Todd Schnuck, chairman and chief executive of Schnucks, said in a statement.

Blues goaltender Jake Allen stops a shot as Predators center Mike Fisher tries to screen him on Tuesday.

Costly defeat for Cards

On the eve of the Blues’ playof elimination game against Nashville, there were no motivational quotes posted in the locker room, only drills drawn up on the dryerase board hanging on the glass at practice. The focus was on hockey, not psyche. “It’s business as usual,” Blues forward Ryan Reaves said. Yes, Mike Yeo’s team is down 3-1 to the Predators going into Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal series at 7 p.m. Friday and only 10.3 percent of clubs have come back to win a best-of-seven series in this scenario. But Thursday was for preparing the game plan, not a premeditated speech. “There’s no need for it,” Yeo said. “If I have to try to motivate the players now … you might need to do it in January or February, but right now, that’s not the case. Right now, we know what’s at stake. We want to keep playing and so we know we have to be at our best against a good team. We want to keep playing and we’re excited about the challenge.” It was a notably upbeat atmosphere at the Blues’ practice facility Thursday for a group that could be packing its lockers over the weekend. That’s because while Nashville holds a commanding lead in the series, the separation in the games has been minimal. Three of the four games have been decided by one See BLUES • Page C6

The Cardinals had prided themselves on having perhaps the best defensive outfield in the National League. And then, in the space of two innings Thursday night, they lost two-thirds of it to injuries, which likely will cause both right fielder Stephen Piscotty

(strained right hamstring) and center fielder Dexter Fowler (strained right shoulder) to go on the 10-day disabled list and not just for 10 days. Piscotty was hurt running out a ground ball in the second inning. And Fowler was hurt diving for a two-base hit in the third inning at chilly Busch See CARDINALS • Page C5

LOUISVILLE, KY. • If it’s May, Todd

Pletcher must be at Churchill Downs preparing a horse — or several — for the Kentucky Derby. Just once since he first took a crack at America’s greatest race in 2000 has the trainer missed the Derby. Pletcher saddles three starters in Saturday’s race: Always Dreaming, Tapwrit and Patch. That will tie him with mentor D. Wayne Lukas for most starters in Derby history at 48. Pletcher is one for 45, his lone victory coming in 2010 with Super Saver. Lukas is a four-time Derby winner, but doesn’t have a horse this year. “The Derby is the goal for many of our young horses. It will continue to be the goal,” Pletcher said on a rainy Thursday at Churchill Downs. “It’s like a shooter in

basketball: Just because they’re not going in all the time, you don’t stop shooting. The only way you’re going to make a basket is to shoot. Forget what your percentage is, keep shooting.” Lukas often tossed numbers at the Derby. The Hall of Fame trainer and former high school basketball coach had five starters in 1996, when he won with Grindstone, and three on five different occasions, including 1995 when he won with Thunder Gulch. Pletcher has followed in Lukas’ footsteps. The 49-year-old trainer had five starters in 2007 and 2013. Three times he’s had four starters, twice he’s had three and six times he’s had two. It’s not that Pletcher believes every horse he enters has a chance to win. With See DERBY • Page C7

DIGEST Hart will go into Arizona Cardinals’ Ring of Honor Quarterback Jim Hart, who played 18 seasons with the Cardinals in St. Louis, will be inducted into the Arizona Cardinals’ Ring of Honor, the team announced Thursday. He will be honored at halftime of a home game this coming season, with the game to be determined later. “The Ring of Honor is reserved for those who have made the most extraordinary contributions to the Cardinals organization, and Jim Hart is absolutely in that category,” team president Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “When you look back at his career, two things really jump out: excellence and longevity.” Hart, now 73 and living in Naples, Fla., played for the Cardinals from 1966-1983, and then finished his career with Washington in 1984. The undrafted rookie out of Southern Illinois Carbondale still ranks as the Cardinals’ career leader in most passing categories, including yards and touchdown passes, and was a four-time Pro Bowler. Hart is the 17th member of the team’s Ring of Honor, joining former St. Louis Ram Kurt Warner as the only quarterbacks in the group.

Bob Costas, who on Saturday again co-hosts NBC’s Kentucky Derby coverage, is winding down his role at the network.

DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Bob Costas is nearing the finish line of the central stage of his unparalleled broadcasting career. Appropriately enough, the final chapter begins to unfold Saturday on NBC at horse racing’s most famous track and with the mostfamed race. Costas announced last winter that he is giving up his two mostprominent roles at the network — host of its prime-time Olympics and Sunday night NFL coverage. He also is reducing his horse-racing duties. Beginning next year he will host the Kentucky Derby telecast, as usual, but will not do so for the Preakness Stakes. And he will be on hand for the Belmont only if a Triple Crown winner is possible. So this season is his final fling with all three races, then next fall his “semi-retirement” begins as his contributions to NBC’s NFL coverage will be limited to occasional appearances. It will be a monumental change for Costas, 65, who has been a fixture at NBC for 3½ decades and has hosted more Olympics telecasts than anyone in history. And he has had many key roles in basketball, baseball and other coverage for the network — including hosting a talk show. “Some people say to me, ‘How can you give up the Olympics and Sunday night football, those are the two biggest audiences in all of sports?’ And they are,” he said this week. “But I’ve had those big audiences for so many years of my career. Now I want to do the things that bring me the greatest personal satisfaction.” He began his career in St. Louis in 1974 by broadcasting games of the American Basketball Association’s Spirits on KMOX (1120 AM). He was hired out of Syracuse University by Robert Hyland, the patriarch of the station who had a keen knack for uncovering talent. And in an interesting twist his grandson, Rob Hyland, again is producing NBC’s Derby telecast. Costas remained a fixture around town for decades after ascending to national acclaim, especially with charitable endeavors, before eventually moving back east. Legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck doubled as KMOX’s sports director at the time Costas came aboard and was overwhelmingly impressed after Costas completed his first Olympics lead hosting assignment, in 1992. “I am convinced ... that he is the best piece of talent ever to be involved in television sports in the history of television,” Buck said then. Contemporary colleague Al Michaels recently called Costas the best broadcast journalist ever. Costas is the only person to have won Emmy Awards in sports, news and entertainment, so beginning to wind down his career is a significant development in TV history. But he says his approach to the Triple Crown horse racing series is “pretty much business as usual. “This is really, in terms of spring time, the same it always has been,” he said. “There was very little stuf on my calendar anyway. The only diference is I have been able to do more games than usual for MLB Network,” for which he works in addition to NBC. It was three months ago when Costas and NBC made the announcement that he will be significantly cutting his schedule. And he now humorously puts the kibosh on any notion that he is having second thoughts about that decision. “I am so comfortable I may just drop of into a deep sleep,” he said, chuckling. “Nothing about it was abrupt. I knew what I was going to do two years ago, but I didn’t want to make any of those announcements — in the present world with social media and all the specula-

tion about the broadcasters almost as much of the athletes — I didn’t want any of that to get in the way” of the job. “So I didn’t want to say anything ... until after our football coverage was over.” To keep that quiet for such a long time in this age was quite an accomplishment. “Not only did I know, but everyone at NBC in the executive suite knew — and they knew as far back as 2012 or 2013 that that was my intention,” Costas said. “But what they always said was, ‘If you change your mind, if you want to keep going, keep going as long as you can. If that means one more Olympics, two more Olympics, one more football season, that’s totally up to you.’ And that only made me appreciate them more. But I told them I thought 2016 would be the end, and I stuck to that. There are no second thoughts except for the fact I’ll miss a lot of the people I worked with.”

NEXT STEP Costas is being replaced in his Olympics and NFL jobs by Mike Tirico, with whom he will co-host the Derby telecast as Tirco makes his Triple Crown series debut. Coverage on NBC (KSDK, Channel 5) beings at 1:30 p.m., with the post time at 5:46 p.m. Included in the presentation is an interview Costas has with the four most-recent men to have called the Derby on television, including former St. Louis-area horse racing announcers Dave Johnson and Tom Durkin. But Costas won’t be totally gone from prominence after the Triple Crown series — far from it. The 2018 Winter Olympics are in South Korea and start a few days after this coming season’s Super Bowl is played. Because Tirico already will be on site, Costas will host NBC’s Super Bowl coverage. And he can be expected to be seen on Sunday nights in limited form. “It comes down to a case-bycase basis,” he said. “If there’s a comprehension interview with (NFL commissioner Roger) Goodell, if some day where he wants to acknowledge it or not, Tom Brady retires ... or some significant figure in the NFL passes away,” Costas could be called on to do the piece. Same for the Olympics, albeit not in 2018. Costas cited the hypothetical example that if Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps agreed to do a joint interview before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, he could be the man for the job. Costas will assume a role similar to semi-retired NBC newscaster Tom Brokaw, who is brought in by the network for perspective during big events. “When there’s something that says, ‘Hey, that’s a Costas thing,’ they’ll call on me,” he said. “What I’ll get away from — and in truth this is OK — is being on the road every single week. Al (Michaels, the 72-year-old Sunday night NFL play-by-play man) is on the road every single week during football. But football’s all that he does now. I’m on the road (for football), then I transition to baseball and a little bit of golf and a little bit of the horse racing. Boy!”

BASEBALL BIZ Costas’ first sports love was baseball, and with his cutbacks at NBC he will be able to call more games than before for MLB Network, which is in its ninth season. He was a high-profile baseball voice for years, and at one time his career path was pointed toward focusing on that. But NBC lost the baseball contract and his career blossomed in other directions. So now he’s glad to be back in a larger role, as his previous comment that “now I want to do the things that bring me the greatest personal satisfaction” attests. “What I’ve really been pleased by is after doing (five) games already this year it’s beginning to feel a little more like getting on a bike,” said Costas, whose next

Blues lead Nashville — in television ratings The Blues head into Game 5 of their second-round NHL playof series against Nashville trailing significantly on the ice, but winning in the television ratings game. The Predators have won three of the four games and are on the verge of eliminating the Blues, and could do so Friday night at Scottrade Center. But St. Louisans have been watching the telecasts of the series at a higher rate than viewers in Nashville. According to Nielsen, 9.9 percent of homes in the St. Louis market have tuned in to the four games thus far (three on NBCSN, one on NBC.) The rating in Nashville is 7.3, a diference of 26 percent. That comes after St. Louis pounded Dallas 14.8-3.3 in the ratings for a secondround matchup last year, which the Blues won in seven games. Friday’s game is on NBCSN, with Kenny Albert (play-by-play) and Pierre McGuire (analysis and reporter) on the broadcast. The puck is set to drop shortly after 7 p.m. On radio, the game is to air on KYKY (98.1 FM) because regular Blues outlet KMOX has the Cardinals’ game (in Atlanta) at the same time. Focus on Fowler • Cardinals center fielder Dexter Fowler is featured on the next episode of MLB Network’s “Play Ball” show, a children’s weekly program that is to be on at 9 a.m. Saturday. Former Cardinal Mark DeRosa, now an MLB Network analyst, is the host. “Play Ball” is touted as featuring “MLB stars reminiscing about reaching the majors, providing advice to kids trying to get better at the game, and sharing tips in oneon-one demonstrations with MLB Network analysts.” Dan Caesar

MLB Network game is set for Thursday (Astros-Yankees, at 6 p.m.). “I wouldn’t say 100 percent, but I’d say 90 percent.” Despite limited appearances last season, Costas is a nominee for the Sports Emmy play-byplay award for his baseball broadcasting then. But he hasn’t been satisfied. He said in the offseason he went to YouTube to watch some games he did in the 1990s. “They were pretty good,” he said, but “it never felt exactly the same to me as it felt with (Tony) Kubek in the ’80s or with (Bob) Uecker and (Joe) Morgan in the ’90s. The reason was that I wasn’t as immersed in it as much. I loved it as much, but I was parachuting in. Now, since the start of this baseball season until this Kentucky Derby, the only thing I’ve ever had to concentrate on professionally is baseball. I fell like it’s coming back pretty quickly. There are the occasional bumps in the road, and every broadcaster will tell you they still are in search of the perfect broadcast. But it feels more like ‘me’ to me. And that’s what matters.”

YOU BETCHA! Jay Randolph and Doug Nachman are back for another season of looking at the Triple Crown horse races from a wagering standpoint, and come out of the gate at 6:30 p.m. Friday on KTRS (550 AM) with their analysis of the Derby. “I think this is as wide-open a Derby as we’ve had in many years,” said Randolph, the mostly-retired St. Louis sportscaster who serves as the in-house handicapper on Tuesday afternoons for Fairmount Park’s races. “And because (a wet track is possible), that really makes it interesting.” Randolph and Nachman, a noted local racing handicapper, are set to return to KTRS at 6:30 p.m. on the Fridays before the Preakness and Belmont races.

SLU adds Butler to schedule Bills play at Butler next season; Bulldogs at Chaifetz in 2018-19 BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The rebuilding process at St. Louis University has led to a massive roster turnover under coach Travis Ford. However, the new look next season also will include a revamped schedule. SLU announced Thursday that it will play a home-and-home series against Butler starting next season in Indianapolis on Dec. 2, a Saturday. Butler will play at Chaifetz Arena the following season. Those games will help fill the void created by the conclusion of a four-year series against Wichita State. With three other series having ended last season, the schedule will undergo further shifts. Contracts with Kansas State, Southern Illinois Carbondale and Southern Illinois Edwardsville have ended, leaving plenty of mystery surrounding the 2017-18 season. Ford said after the season that he was torn between building a schedule with significant challenges or something less daunting. The only games set thus far are Butler and SLU’s games in the 2K Classic, which will be played at home sites before moving to New York. The Billikens will play two undetermined opponents at Madison Square Garden from a field that includes Providence, Virginia Tech and Washington. They also will play two home games against a group that includes Belmont, Detroit Mercy, Houston Baptist and Seattle. Those schools are part of the 2K Classic but will play in a separate pool in Nashville, Tenn. It is also expected that the Billikens will continue to play SIUC. The games against Butler will renew a series that was played during the brief time the Bulldogs were a member of the Atlantic 10. SLU leads the all-time series 19-11. The Billikens won both regular-season meetings during the 2012-13 season. Butler was ranked No. 9 nationally when the teams played at Chaifetz Arena and No. 15 for their meeting at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. SLU also beat Butler in the A-10 tournament semifinals that season. “This is a win-win from a scheduling standpoint because these will be great games for our team as well as our fans,” Ford said in a statement. “I have a lot of respect for Butler’s program and there is no doubt this will be a major test for our basketball team. We are thrilled to get a regional road game of this caliber on a weekend to make it easier for our fans to travel.” Butler was 25-9 last season and advanced to the Sweet 16, losing to eventual

Fan struck in head with flying bat at Petco Park A woman sitting two rows behind the Colorado Rockies’ dugout was struck in the head by a bat that flew out of the hands of Hector Sanchez of the San Diego Padres on Thursday, delaying the game for 13 minutes. The woman and her husband, who was also hit by the bat, were taken to a hospital and their injuries do not appear to be serious, the Padres said in a statement. The woman took the brunt of the impact. She was tended to by medical personnel and was able to walk up the steps to the concourse with an EMT before being taken out in a wheelchair. Her head was bandaged. The Padres said they could not provide any further information. “We never want to see anybody injured while enjoying a game at Petco Park,” the Padres statement said. “Last season, we extended our backstop netting in accordance with Major League Baseball’s recommendations. Any injury at the ballpark warrants evaluation and discussion of current practices.” The bat flew out of Sanchez’s hands as he swung at a pitch from Jake McGee with one out in the ninth. When he saw what happened, Sanchez removed his helmet and took a moment to compose himself. “It’s pretty bad,” Sanchez said after the game. “I feel really, really bad about it, especially when you see the lady, it’s really sad. I just feel sorry for her.

champion North Carolina in the South Regional. The Bulldogs are ranked as high as No. 16 in a sampling of early projections by national publications. SLU will have at least six new players next season — four transfers who had to sit out last season and two incoming freshmen. Already dramatic, the roster changes became more prominent when Zeke Moore and Matt Neufeld announced that they would transfer and Austin Gillmann left the program to focus on academics. That leaves the Billikens with four returning players in Davell Roby, Elliott Welmer, Jalen Johnson and Jermaine Bishop. It is also possible that walk-on

Aaron Hines could return. SLU has received a commitment from Luis Santos, a 6-foot-9 forward who is transferring from South Florida. He will have to sit out one season. That leaves Ford with two scholarships to use for the 201718 season if he chooses. “I like where our team is at,” he said when the scholarships became available. “We’re in a good spot. The good thing is we’re pretty set on guys we think we can compete with. We have no gaping holes to fill necessarily.” Stu Durando @studurando on Twitter sdurando@post-dispatch.com

It’s a rare down year for Mizzou softball Tigers still feeling after-efects of last year’s internal investigation of program BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • Missouri softball

coach Ehren Earleywine hasn’t been through a season like this in his 11 years in Columbia, but he doesn’t need a thorough examination to diagnose the Tigers’ problems. Down to their final regular-season series, the Tigers are 28-23. That’s five more losses than the team’s ever had on Earleywine’s watch. The numbers say Mizzou has the Southeastern Conference’s worst pitching. No inning unfolds easily when the Tigers are on the field. Mizzou could still make the NCAA tournament but can probably count out hosting a four-team regional at its sparkling new stadium. But you won’t catch Earleywine calling this a rebuilding year. The future is brighter than ever, he believes. Championships are still on their way. But Earleywine believes last year’s lengthy investigation by Mizzou’s administration was the fault line that fractured the team beyond repair, to the point where MU’s two best pitchers transferred after the season. “Had we not had the ordeal we had (last) spring, and had the prior administration handled it properly, I think everyone comes back and we sort those problems out early on instead of pitting sides against one another and creating this divide,” Earleywine said this week, sitting in the stands of Mizzou Softball Stadium. “Had it been handled up front, both parties in the same room talking things through in the beginning, we wouldn’t have to rebuild.” It was a year ago Sunday that a core of Mizzou players announced they were playing in protest of athletics director Mack Rhoades, who had launched an internal review of Earleywine after receiving complaints about the way he treated players. The investigation stretched into the summer, well after the Tigers lost to Michigan in the NCAA super regionals. By then, the university’s Title IX Office got involved and reviewed the allegations. By July, Rhoades left Mizzou for Baylor and Earleywine was left unsure about his future. He was cleared of any violations of the federal discrimination law, and by the time new AD Jim Sterk was hired, Earleywine was cleared to return for an 11th season. After a 42-win season, Earleywine had to replace three senior stalwarts in the lineup, plus pitchers Tori Finucane and Paige Lowary, who transferred to Minnesota and Oklahoma, respectively. Freshman pitcher Parker Conrad hasn’t developed into the workhorse role Earleywine

Mizzou coach Ehren Earleywine says he’s still not sure why former AD Mack Rhoades “had to pick on us” with last year’s lengthy investigation into his treatment of players.

optimistically expected, though senior Cheyenne Baxter has been a pleasant surprise as his top starter for his makeshift rotation. Earleywine believes last year’s investigation forced some players, including both departed pitchers, to align against the team’s core that supported the head coach. “Honestly, had we wanted those kids to stay they would still be there, but sides were pitted,” he said. “At that point, it became us giving the thumbs up to everybody who wanted out of here because we knew they were the opposition.” A year later, the Tigers are still in recovery. The lineup lost its most established slugger early in the spring when third basemen Amanda Sanchez was lost for the season with an elbow injury. Freshman shortstop Braxton Burnside is already a star at the plate. But an offense that leads the SEC in total bases and ranks second with 51 home runs hasn’t overcome the SEC’s highest team ERA (3.14) and a pitching staf that puts too many balls in play for a defense Earleywine called below average. Earleywine finds solace in an 11-player recruiting class that’s loaded with reinforcements, including Lutheran South High outfielder Abby George.

He also enjoys his relationship with Sterk, who instantly found common ground with Earleywine: Both played fastpitch softball in their youth. Earleywine appreciates that Sterk hasn’t tried to micromanage. “We’ve had it covered for 10 years,” said Earleywine, a Jeferson City native. “I’m not sure why Mack Rhoades didn’t understand that. But he didn’t. He felt like he had to pick on us and make us better. There’s a lot of other problems in the athletic department they could have fixed before the softball program. But Jim is mature enough to say, ‘Hey, super successful program. Local guy coaching the team. Let’s let them do what they do.’” The Tigers (6-14 SEC) host No. 21 Mississippi (34-17, 18-13) for a weekend series starting Friday then head to Tennessee for next week’s SEC tournament. For now, the Tigers’ RPI is high enough at No. 31 to assume they’ll be slotted in 64-team NCAA field as a No. 2 or 3 seed. Earleywine has saved some pregame speech material for a team still paying for last year’s drama but isn’t done playing this spring. “We can beat anybody on any given day,” he said.

Bryce Harper

Nats’ Harper leaves game • Nationals slugger Bryce Harper left Thursday’s 4-2 win over Arizona after hurting his left groin and is day to day, according to Washington manager Dusty Baker. Harper said he felt the injury while diving to make a catch during the third inning. He batted three more times and was replaced in right field by Chris Heisey to start the seventh. Harper went 0 for three with a walk and a run. He is batting .376 with nine homers and 27 RBIs. Red Sox’s Wright to have seasonending surgery • The Boston Red Sox say knuckleballer Steven Wright needs knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season. The team said before Thursday night’s game against Baltimore that the righthander will have an operation to repair the cartilage in his left knee next week. Red Sox manager John Farrell said there wasn’t one thing that caused the injury. Wright pitched on Saturday and came out without any complaints, according to Dave Dombrowski, the team’s president of baseball operations. In all, the 2016 All-Star was 1-4 with an 8.25 ERA in five starts this season. Dombrowski said he thought the team didn’t need to make a move to bolster the rotation. David Price threw three simulated innings on Thursday and hit 95 mph with his last pitch. Twins’ Buxton pulled • Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton was pulled from the game on Thursday against Oakland after running into the wall while tracking down a flyball in the fifth inning. The Twins say he was pulled for precautionary reasons and passed all the initial concussion tests. He will be evaluated again on Friday before the Twins start a series against Boston. With two outs in the fifth, Matt Joyce sent a drive to deep left-center field. Buxton raced to make the catch, but slammed into the wall so hard that his hat fell of. He bent over for a few moments before trotting back to the dugout, and did not return to the game. White Sox put reliever Jones on 10-day disabled list • The Chicago White Sox placed reliever Nate Jones on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation and purchased the contract of lefthander David Holmberg from Triple-A Charlotte before their series finale against the Kansas City Royals on Thursday. The White Sox also scratched third baseman Todd Frazier shortly before the first pitch. He was dealing with back stifness and a team spokesman said he was day to day. Matt Davidson took his place in the starting lineup. White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Jones’ elbow issue is “relatively minor” and he should be back in a couple of weeks. The 31-year-old pitcher, who had Tommy John surgery in May 2014, was 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA over 11 relief appearances this season. Holmberg was 3-0 with a 1.76 ERA over six appearances with Charlotte. To clear roster space for him, the White Sox transferred left-hander Carlos Rodon to the 60-day disabled list. Rodon has been out since March 30 with left biceps bursitis. He was not expected back until the 60-day mark, and his transfer does not mean that he’s experienced any setbacks. Associated Press

ROUNDUP

Albert Almora Jr. doubled leading of the 13th inning and scored on a throwing error by shortstop Freddy Galvis, giving the host Chicago Cubs a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Kris Bryant had four hits, Miguel Montero homered and drove in two runs, and Matt Szczur and Addison Russell hit run-scoring doubles as the Cubs extended their winning streak to three. Almora doubled of Joely Rodriguez (1-1) to begin the 13th and held as Javier Baez hit a comebacker. Ben Zobrist was intentionally walked, and Szczur grounded sharply to second baseman Cesar Hernandez, who threw to Galvis for the forceout. Trying to complete an inning-ending double play, Galvis bounced his throw to irst, which went to the outside side of the based and skipped into foul territory.

ROUNDUP

Albert Almora Jr. doubled leading of the 13th inning and scored on a throwing error by shortstop Freddy Galvis, giving the host Chicago Cubs a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Kris Bryant had four hits, Miguel Montero homered and drove in two runs, and Matt Szczur and Addison Russell hit run-scoring doubles as the Cubs extended their winning streak to three. Almora doubled of Joely Rodriguez (1-1) to begin the 13th and held as Javier Baez hit a comebacker. Ben Zobrist was intentionally walked, and Szczur grounded sharply to second baseman Cesar Hernandez, who threw to Galvis for the forceout. Trying to complete an inning-ending double play, Galvis bounced his throw to irst, which went to the outside side of the based and skipped into foul territory.

SERIES PREVIEW: CARDINALS AT BRAVES SCOUTING REPORT • The Cardinals will head southeast for a road trip to Atlanta and Miami, which begins with three games against the Braves. The Cardinals continue to hover around .500 after their series with the Milwaukee Brewers and after rebounding from their 3-9 start. Though the pitching has been good, the ofense has seen some struggles. Shortstop Aledmys Diaz, hovering around a .200 batting average, was dropped from second to sixth in the batting order in Thursday’s inale with the Brewers. Entering Thursday, Diaz has just four hits in his last 30 at-bats (.133 average) and 10 hits in his last 63 (.159). The Braves are playing some of their irst games in their newly opened

stadium, SunTrust Park. The new ballpark has a shortened wall in the right-ield gap, as much as 20 feet shorter than Turner Field. Another change is instead of an 8-foot, 4-inch wall all the way around, the wall’s height now varies from six feet in left ield to 16 feet in right ield. Braves pitchers have allowed the fourth-most runs in the NL. Not much can be contributed to the new ballpark’s dimensions though, as the Braves have played the fewest games at home so far this season. Max Gelman

AVERAGES

BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-dispatch

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny made some lineup switches before Thursday’s Cardinals-Milwaukee Brewers game at scarcely populated Busch Stadium. But those paled to the changes he had to make in-game. Right fielder Stephen Piscotty suffered a right hamstring strain when he futilely tried to beat out a second-inning groundout. An inning later, center fielder Dexter Fowler had to leave the game with a strained right shoulder sufered when he missed on a diving catch of Hernan Perez’s drive which went for a double between Fowler and left fielder Randal Grichuk. Both players likely are headed to the 10-day disabled list, pending further examinations Friday. Memphis outfielder Tommy Pham, who surely will be coming up, was pulled from the Memphis game at Omaha Thursday. Piscotty, who had been hitting fourth, fifth or sixth, had the second-best on-base percentage (.385) among the Cardinals’ regulars but was seventh in extra-base hits with his slugging average (.390) about the same as his on-base mark. Aledmys Diaz, who had hit second for all of his 22 starts, had the lowest on-base percentage of any regular at .233 but was second in homers at five. So, Matheny, seeking to optimize both, reversed their lineup fortunes. Piscotty, a .247 batsman this year who hit second in 49 games last year and batted .310, replaced Diaz in the No. 2 spot and Diaz was dropped to a run-production spot at No. 6. Diaz, whose .218 average tied Fowler for the club low among regulars, said the change in batting order shouldn’t afect his preparation for any at-bat. “I’m going to have the same approach there,” said Diaz, who doubled in his first atbat Thursday, sparking a three-run inning and then moved to left field for the first time amid the various injuries.

Matheny explained his batting order move by saying “Stephen’s been taking good atbats — and getting on base. We’ve made it pretty clear that’s a (top-of-the-lineup) model we can put together with guys like Carp (Matt Carpenter) and Fowler. When Diaz is seeing the ball and working the count, that can be a full fit. When (he’s) not we have to give the guys who are an opportunity. Stephen could be a good fit there, for the time being.” The time being, unfortunately, was two innings. Piscotty had opened the night hitting .247, his highest since April 17.

PERALTA GOES OUT ON OPTION Infielder Jhonny Peralta will join the Cardinals’ Class A team at Palm Beach for a weekend series on a medical rehabilitation option.

Matheny said Peralta, who has been on the 10-day disabled list after a bad medicinal reaction for an upper respiratory infection, would play third base and shortstop besides getting his at-bats in. Peralta also could take part in extended spring training action in Jupiter, Fla., Matheny thought. “Hopefully, he can start getting that game speed movement and actions,” said Matheny. Peralta, hitting .120 with no homers or runs batted in, has been out since the middle of April.

‘THEME NIGHT’ When the original schedule had the Cardinals playing an afternoon game, the players, upon the brainstorm of righthander Lance Lynn, were going to wear colorful Kentucky Derby outfits for their trip to Atlanta, in commemoration of the country’s most famous horse race this weekend. Then the players would wear Miami Vice livery for their trip to Florida Sunday evening. The weather pushed the Cardinals’ plane trip back to a post-midnight arrival in Atlanta but the plan stayed the same, except for its perpetrator. Lynn, Friday’s pitcher, was sent ahead to Georgia on Thursday morning. “It should be fun,” said Matt Adams, who was to don a blue suit jacket with a pink button-down shirt and baby blue bow tie with horses on it, khakis and white dress shoes. Several players were going to sport jaunty hats. Korean-born Seung Hwan Oh did some research along with his translator, Eugene Koo, and decided to wear suspenders as part of his outfit.

TICKET VOUCHERS The Cardinals announced that anybody who had bought a ticket to Thursday’s game, which was rescheduled as a night game because of the weather, will receive a voucher for two tickets to a future game, whether the fan(s) attended Thursday’s game or not.

Stadium, where only 12,893 out of 36,250 paid customers actually showed up for a game whose starting time was moved back 5½ hours because of weather concerns. Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright put a strain on the bullpen by lasting just five innings, marking the fifth time in six starts he hadn’t made it past five. Wainwright gave up 10 hits, giving him 49 allowed during the season, most in the league. The game was tied 4-4 when he left. Matt Bowman stranded the bases loaded in the sixth but surrendered Jesus Aguilar’s first major league home run, a pinch homer with two out in the seventh, that broke the tie and gave the Brewers a 5-4 victory. The Cardinals completed what was to have been a 10-game home stand with a 4-4 record and three rainouts, two of which were not made up. The two teams managed to leave 23 runners on base between them, 13 by the Brewers. Aledmys Diaz, dropped to No. 6 in the order for the first time because he hadn’t been getting on at No. 2, doubled to left center

for one of his three hits to set up a three-run second inning for the Cardinals. He would finish the game in left field after starting at shortstop. After Yadier Molina singled to left center, Diaz stroked a double to left center, where Brewers center fielder Keon Broxton slipped on the wet grass as he tried to hold the play to a single. Molina was held at third and Randal Grichuk, who leads the team in strikeouts with 31, fanned. But Kolten Wong, who had three hits to extend his hitting streak to a career-high-tying nine, rolled an infield single toward short. Molina got a big jump of third and scored easily and Grichuk got to third ahead of shortstop Orlando Arcia’s underhand throw. Wainwright struck out but Fowler, nothing for his last 10, rocketed a two-run triple to right center and it was 3-0. But the inning ended on a sour note as Piscotty suffered his hamstring injury as he stepped on first, striving to beat out a slow roller, which was the final out. He was replaced in right field by Jose Martinez. Milwaukee quickly tied the

game with three runs in the third as the Brewers batted around. Left fielder Grichuk (he went to center later) helped Wainwright by making a catch before banging into the wall to snatch a double from Jonathan Villar. But Eric Thames singled to left and Hernan Perez doubled out of the reach of diving center fielder Fowler in left center. With runners at second and third, Travis Shaw doubled down the third-base line to score two runs. Broxton’s two-out double down the same third-base line

chased home Shaw with the tying run. Again, the Cardinals went ahead, scoring once in the home third but it should have been a much bigger inning. Matt Carpenter walked for the second time and Jedd Gyorko singled to right, sending him to third. Molina, who has delivered eight of nine runners from third base with under two out, singled to left to score Carpenter. But Diaz then flied deep to right and Grichuk bounced into a double play, ending the inning.

The news got worse after the inning when it was announced that Fowler had to leave the game with his right shoulder strain injured on his unsuccessful dive. Diaz went to left field for the first time in his career in the fourth inning, with Grichuk moving to center and Greg Garcia taking over at shortstop. Garcia and Martinez both struck out in the fourth, stranding Wong, who had doubled and moved up on Wainwright’s sacrifice. Broxton then clouted a 404foot homer for the Brewers’ 10th hit off Wainwright to tie the game at 4-4 in the fifth. Lefthander Brett Cecil relieved in the sixth and got two outs but also put two runners on. Righthander Bowman entered to walk the first hitter he faced to load the bases but left them filled when he struck out Jett Bandy. The Cardinals failed in their sixth when Carpenter struck out with runners at second and third in an inning begun by Wong’s bunt single, shoving him above the .300 mark.

AVERAGES

BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-dispatch

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny made some lineup switches before Thursday’s Cardinals-Milwaukee Brewers game at scarcely populated Busch Stadium. But those paled to the changes he had to make in-game. Right fielder Stephen Piscotty suffered a right hamstring strain when he futilely tried to beat out a second-inning groundout. An inning later, center fielder Dexter Fowler had to leave the game with a strained right shoulder sufered when he missed on a diving catch of Hernan Perez’s drive which went for a double between Fowler and left fielder Randal Grichuk. Both players likely are headed to the 10-day disabled list, pending further examinations Friday. Memphis outfielder Tommy Pham, who surely will be coming up, was pulled from the Memphis game at Omaha Thursday. Piscotty, who had been hitting fourth, fifth or sixth, had the second-best on-base percentage (.385) among the Cardinals’ regulars but was seventh in extra-base hits with his slugging average (.390) about the same as his on-base mark. Aledmys Diaz, who had hit second for all of his 22 starts, had the lowest on-base percentage of any regular at .233 but was second in homers at five. So, Matheny, seeking to optimize both, reversed their lineup fortunes. Piscotty, a .247 batsman this year who hit second in 49 games last year and batted .310, replaced Diaz in the No. 2 spot and Diaz was dropped to a run-production spot at No. 6. Diaz, whose .218 average tied Fowler for the club low among regulars, said the change in batting order shouldn’t afect his preparation for any at-bat. “I’m going to have the same approach there,” said Diaz, who doubled in his first atbat Thursday, sparking a three-run inning and then moved to left field for the first time amid the various injuries.

Matheny explained his batting order move by saying “Stephen’s been taking good atbats — and getting on base. We’ve made it pretty clear that’s a (top-of-the-lineup) model we can put together with guys like Carp (Matt Carpenter) and Fowler. When Diaz is seeing the ball and working the count, that can be a full fit. When (he’s) not we have to give the guys who are an opportunity. Stephen could be a good fit there, for the time being.” The time being, unfortunately, was two innings. Piscotty had opened the night hitting .247, his highest since April 17.

PERALTA GOES OUT ON OPTION Infielder Jhonny Peralta will join the Cardinals’ Class A team at Palm Beach for a weekend series on a medical rehabilitation option.

Matheny said Peralta, who has been on the 10-day disabled list after a bad medicinal reaction for an upper respiratory infection, would play third base and shortstop besides getting his at-bats in. Peralta also could take part in extended spring training action in Jupiter, Fla., Matheny thought. “Hopefully, he can start getting that game speed movement and actions,” said Matheny. Peralta, hitting .120 with no homers or runs batted in, has been out since the middle of April.

‘THEME NIGHT’ When the original schedule had the Cardinals playing an afternoon game, the players, upon the brainstorm of righthander Lance Lynn, were going to wear colorful Kentucky Derby outfits for their trip to Atlanta, in commemoration of the country’s most famous horse race this weekend. Then the players would wear Miami Vice livery for their trip to Florida Sunday evening. The weather pushed the Cardinals’ plane trip back to a post-midnight arrival in Atlanta but the plan stayed the same, except for its perpetrator. Lynn, Friday’s pitcher, was sent ahead to Georgia on Thursday morning. “It should be fun,” said Matt Adams, who was to don a blue suit jacket with a pink button-down shirt and baby blue bow tie with horses on it, khakis and white dress shoes. Several players were going to sport jaunty hats. Korean-born Seung Hwan Oh did some research along with his translator, Eugene Koo, and decided to wear suspenders as part of his outfit.

TICKET VOUCHERS The Cardinals announced that anybody who had bought a ticket to Thursday’s game, which was rescheduled as a night game because of the weather, will receive a voucher for two tickets to a future game, whether the fan(s) attended Thursday’s game or not.

inning at chilly Busch Stadium, where only 12,893 out of 36,250 paid customers actually showed up for a game whose starting time was moved back 5½ hours because of weather concerns. Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright put a strain on the bullpen by lasting just five innings, marking the fifth time in six starts he hadn’t made it past five. Wainwright gave up 10 hits, giving him 49 allowed during the season, most in the league. But the game was only tied 4-4 when he left. Matt Bowman stranded the bases loaded in the sixth but surrendered Jesus Aguilar’s first major league home run, a pinch homer with two out in the seventh, to give the Brewers a 5-4 victory. The Cardinals completed what was to have been a 10-game home stand with a 4-4 record and three rainouts, two of which were not made up. In essence, it was a tripleheader loss. One game and perhaps two players. “Not ideal,” said first baseman Matt Carpenter.“Not ideal.” Manager Mike Matheny and general manager John Mozeliak both said no determination had been made on the disabled list or speculation on how long either

Piscotty or Fowler would be out. Both will be re-examined here Friday. “I’ll wait until the doctor weighs in,” said Mozeliak. But Tommy Pham, who was pulled from a Memphis game in Omaha, will turn up in Atlanta Friday for the start of a series. “We have one player on the move already,” confirmed Matheny. Piscotty was walking without a limp late Thursday and said he thought the injury was more a “muscle spasm” than a strain. He didn’t think he would have to go on the disabled list but that decision, of course, will not be his. After having an MRI exam, Piscotty said, “It’s a very, very mild muscle spasm. It’s extremely good news. Everything is very encouraging, after the fact.” He admitted he hadn’t felt anything like it for a while and he said, “It shocked me a little bit. There’s some tightening in it, but no damage in it. “It’s a little sore. It’s going to be a pain tolerance-type thing. Whatever I can manage, I’ll try to play through.” Matheny said he was always concerned about players injuring themselves in cold, wet conditions. “Our field is in great shape. The

(grounds crew) guys did an incredible job getting it to the point where it is,” said Matheny.“But it’s still cold. It’s still damp. Yeah, we are always concerned. That’s kind of our worst nightmare. Dexter was more of the efort toward the ball in the air than it was the conditions. Probably the cold weather more than anything else you can point to as far as Stephen goes.” Piscotty said the virtual everyother-day rainout of the last week had afected his routine. “I’ve got to try to do a better job when that happens and make sure I’m extra loose,” he said. “I was really putting ‘max’ effort into the last step and might have lunged a little too far.” Kolten Wong, extending his hitting streak to a career-high-tying nine games, had his first threehit game of the season, including a bunt single. Aledmys Diaz, dropped to No. 6 in the order for the first time because he hadn’t been getting on at No. 2, doubled for one of his three hits to set up a three-run second inning. “I just saw the ball better today,” he said. And Diaz would finish the game in left field after starting at shortstop. “It’s a different view for me,” said Diaz, who had one fly ball chance. “The first inning, it was a

little weird.” Matheny said he didn’t have much choice but to make that switch. “We believe he moves well enough to be able to cover,” said Matheny. “Just one of those situations where we have to put somebody out there. (Greg) Garcia is good to come in defensively (at shortstop), and we trust Diaz can get the job done, and fortunately he didn’t get a lot of work. “There were not a lot of other options,” said Matheny, who confirmed that the Matt Adams experiment in left has been shelved. “All this is kind of happening too fast,” said Matheny. “We kind of backed off that (Adams) idea. But you never write anything completely of.” Wainwright, who has a 6.30 earned-run average now, didn’t lose the game, oicially, but talked as if he did, considering he lost 3-0 and 4-3 leads. “It’s a tough loss,” he said. “It’s another disappointing outing from my standpoint. But the offense did a great job getting a lead, and that third inning was ... look at the way they scored the three runs. The two (doubles) that hit the (third-base) line scored all the runs. But that’s the way baseball goes sometimes. The defense played great behind me. (The)

guys swung the bats tonight. I just didn’t do my job.” While Wainwright had been happy with his “stuff” on other occasions this season, he wasn’t quite as enamored on Thursday. “My cutter was terrible,” he said. “It’s got to get better. It’s got to go somewhere else. “I’ll be working on some variations of it, for sure. It just stinks.” Matheny said, “Without question, he’s frustrated, especially when we give him a three-run lead.” Fowler had tripled in the final two runs of the three-run second but the third would be his final inning. He came into the dugout and reported his discomfort, which left fielder Randal Grichuk hadn’t seen initially. Grichuk, who had closed on the ball, too, said, “Of the bat, I thought I might have a chance. It was probably one of those where both of us could have laid out for it. But, when I looked right before ‘layout time,’ I saw that he was kind of on the move for it. It was one of those in-betweeners.” And, for now, Grichuk is back as the Cardinals’ regular center fielder. For how long, nobody knows. Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

BLUES NOTEBOOK

Edmundson likely to join power play Blues defenseman has been team’s most productive player during the postseason BY TOM TIMMERMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Defenseman Joel Edmundson is an unlikely candidate to end up on the Blues’ power play, but he’s also an unlikely guy to be tied for the team’s postseason lead in goals, so maybe there’s something there. Edmundson, who played all of 2 minutes, 28 seconds on the power play in the entire regular season, was working with the unit in practice on Thursday, generally a precursor to being used for that in a game very soon. “We’ll see,” Edmundson said. “They threw me out there to see how it is. I’m not sure what they’re up to though. If the opportunity comes, I’ll be excited.” “It’s worth a look,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. “It’s worth checking it out in practice and see how it looks.” It can’t hurt, since the Blues’ power play has scored just twice in 24 tries this postseason. A good chunk of what counts as power-play time for Edmundson came when there was a stoppage with a few seconds left and the team put him out there as they were preparing to go back to even strength. He had only four

power-play shifts that were longer than 15 seconds all season. Edmundson has three goals this postseason — putting him even with Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko — on just eight shots, making him the most productive player on the team. “I think we’re getting bodies to the front of the net and I’m shooting the puck at the right time, and luckily it’s finding the way to the back of the net,” he said. “They might think I’m a little lucky now and try me out. Might as well.” Edmundson said he played on the power play sometimes with Chicago in the AHL and in his last season of juniors.

MOVING DAY As he promised on Wednesday, Yeo had a new set of lines on the ice on Thursday. The most noticeable change was moving Vladimir Sobotka to the top line with Paul Stastny and Tarasenko and putting Schwartz on a line with Patrik Berglund and Steen (who, again, didn’t skate). Jori Lehtera moved back to third-line center, between Scottie Upshall and Ryan Reaves. “We’ve been trying a lot of dif-

ferent things and they don’t necessarily translate to the game,” Yeo said. “It’s an opportunity to look at some things and see how it goes.” Sobotka, who has two goals and three assists, has been one of the most consistently good players for the Blues and could be a nice addition to the top line. “He’s had a really strong playoff for us,” Yeo said. “He’s been very efective and it’s not hard to figure out why. You get into playoff hockey and to have success, you want speed, you want skill, but the level of competitiveness goes up. When he plays the way that he does and he gets to the hard areas, he protects the puck, he wins battles offensively, that opens up time and space for other people and creates situations and opportunities for himself as well.” Yeo also put the team’s fourth line back together after Kyle Brodziak was a healthy scratch for Game 4. “We’ve got to get back to what makes our line successful and I think that’s playing with a responsibility but also an aggression to it,” Brodziak said. “I think that’s when we’re at our best, when we’re all playing aggressive and we’re all playing on the same

page, we find ways to get pucks in their end and that’s when we’re doing our job well.” Brodziak felt a lack of aggression was one of the things that led to him sitting out Game 4. “I don’t think I was playing aggressive enough and trusting that,” he said. “I think it’s just trusting my game. I’ve got to get back to doing that, not being out there second-guessing at all. It’s too fast of a game to be having any second-guessing in it.” For a veteran like Brodziak, being left out of the lineup wasn’t easy. “It’s tough,” he said. “This time of year especially, you want to be part of the group. It’s tough, but you’ve got to take out of it what you can and get your game back to the level it needs to be.”

EMPTY FEELING With the Blues trailing in Games 3 and 4, Yeo has not hesitated in pulling goalie Jake Allen in favor of a sixth attacker as the team battles to get even. In Game 3, with the Blues down two goals, Allen went to the bench with 4:09 to play. In Game 4, with the Blues down one goal, he left the net with 2:43 to play. Both times are far earlier than in similar

situations earlier in the season. Down two goals to Minnesota in Game 4, Allen didn’t get to the bench until 1:54 remained. “We’d like to not be in that situation or that position,” Yeo said, “but we’ve given ourselves a couple good opportunities. We had a couple good looks last game and a couple good looks the game before, so you do what you have to do.” Those closing minutes have been eventful, but ultimately unproductive. In Game 3, the Blues had 10 shot attempts in the final four minutes (four on goal, four missed and two blocked) and in Game 4, in half the time, they had nine shots (two on goal, two missed and five blocked).

GAME 6 SET If Game 6 is necessary on Sunday, it will start at 2 p.m. and be televised on NBC (KSDK Channel 5). No start time has been set for Game 7, which would be on Tuesday. The Blues and Predators share that day with a potential Game 6 in the Ottawa-New York series. Jeremy Rutherford @jprutherford on Twitter jrutherford@post-dispatch.com

goal and the other was a 3-1 win for the Predators in which they got their final goal in the third period. “If we didn’t feel like we were in the games, it’s a diferent mood,” Blues forward Paul Stastny said. “The first game in Nashville we didn’t play that well and we were still in it and played better at the end. The last game was probably our best game of the series and it was basically a coin toss of a game.” The Blues wound up falling 2-1 in Game 4, but not after putting up 33 shots on net and doling out 33 hits. They also won the faceof battle for the first time in the series. “I know we have another level, but we played a real strong game,” Yeo said. “I think that’s encouraging. Every game has been basically a one-goal game and so tweak a little here, get a little better there, we give ourselves a good chance.” “They played a good game,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “They were desperate last game, they’re going to be desperate again. We’re going to have to play a game that’s good enough to win on the road. Everybody’s trying to win every single game they play. They’re looking to make it to one, we’re looking to end it. That’s what it comes down to.” Looking to “make it one” will be the key for the Blues, accord-

ing to Yeo, who has been part of a couple of comebacks from a 3-1 series deficit as an assistant coach with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (the Pittsburgh Penguins’ American Hockey League ailiate). “If we get caught up in the game of thinking of the end result, then we won’t be ready to do the little things and be ready to execute and have the detail in our game that we need,” Yeo said. “If we look at the big picture right now, we’re in trouble. We all know what the big picture is and we’re well aware of that. “For me, that’s just the mental toughness you need and it’s not an easy thing. It’s discipline that you have to force yourself to use and prepare with. We just have to stay in the moment. We’re looking forward to getting back on home ice, in front of our crowd, and laying it on the line for them.” Stastny agreed, saying, “I think we’ll leave it all out there and feed off the crowd,” and he was one of two Blues who had a feeling that Friday won’t be the final time this season that the players put their uniforms on. A win would send the series to Game 6 in Nashville Sunday. “I don’t think there’s any mindset in here that thinks it’s going to be our last game,” he said. “We’re going in there to win and that’s all we can focus on. Whatever happens we can worry about that after the game.” Another was Reaves, who re-

minded that few people even picked the Blues to advance to the second round of the playofs. “A lot of people counted us out,” he said. “I think the only people that didn’t count us out were the guys in this locker room and this organization. It’s the exact same thing right now. Before everybody is thinking we’re done and here we are. “I think everybody is still committed for the long haul here. I don’t think it’s crossed anybody’s mind that it’s the last game. I think we’ve got a lot of hockey left. Right now I think everybody is thinking we’re done, but we’ll talk (Friday). See what happens after the game.” Earlier in the series, Yeo wondered if the Blues “hated” the Predators enough, and players didn’t disagree. But now heading into a decisive Game 5, there’s no one wondering about that anymore. “Game 1 we showed them a little too much respect and gradually we’ve gotten better,” Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson said. “Right now there’s a hate for them and I think they hate us. We have to bring that hate and that energy and excitement in the next game. We know it’s do or die, so we have to play like it. We’re not ready to pack it in. We want to push to a Game 6 so it will be a fun battle.” Jeremy Rutherford @jprutherford on Twitter jrutherford@post-dispatch.com

Oscar Lindberg scored two goals, Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves and the host New York Rangers beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 on Thursday night to tie their Eastern Conference semifinal series at two games apiece. Chris Kreider and Nick Holden also scored and Tanner Glass added two assists for the Rangers, who have won four consecutive home games this postseason. Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa, and Craig Anderson made 17 saves before being replaced by Mike Condon for the third period. Condon finished with nine stops. Senators star defenseman Erik Karlsson also left the game after the second period with an injury. Karlsson played during the first round with two microfractures in one of his feet from blocking a shot late in the regular season. Game 5 is Saturday at Ottawa. Lundqvist has stopped 48 of his past 50 shots after allowing six goals in the Senators’ double-overtime win in Game 2. Lindberg scored both of the Rangers’ second-period goals. Glass, playing his second consecutive game, blocked Ben Harpur’s shot and Michael Grabner grabbed the loose puck and broke in with Lindberg, who scored on a one-timer at 2:01. Glass also helped set up Lindberg’s next goal. He outworked Senators defenseman Cody Ceci for the puck behind the Ottawa net and sent it to the boards. J.T. Miller grabbed the loose puck and passed to Lindberg at the point for a 3-0 lead at 15:54. Lindberg also scored the Rangers’ final goal in their Game 3 win. Kreider made it 4-0 with a power-play goal at 10:45 of the third. Turris scored at 13:34, but the Senators had trouble generating sustained pressure against Lundqvist and were sloppy with the puck at times. For the second consecutive game, the Rangers controlled the first period. In Game 3, they scored the first two goals and outshot Ottawa 15-5. On Thursday, they outshot the Senators 11-7 and opened the scoring again. Holden led a breakout from the defensive zone and sent a pass to Kevin Hayes at center ice. Hayes passed back to Holden along the left wing and he broke in toward the net and beat Anderson with a wrist shot that went over his right pad at 14:04. The Rangers have scored the first goal in each game of the series.

Penguins’ Crosby skating again • Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is skating again, but coach Mike Sullivan provided no update on when his star will be ready to return from a concussion. Crosby sat out Pittsburgh’s 3-2 victory in Game 4 of its Eastern Conference semifinal against Washington on Wednesday night. He was diagnosed with his second concussion of the season after taking a cross-check in the head from Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen. The Penguins were given a day off on Thursday, but several players including Crosby gathered at the team’s practice facility for a workout. Sullivan said Crosby “is in the process of rehabbing” but declined to answer when asked if there’s a chance the two-time MVP will play in Washington on Saturday. The Penguins are 5-4 in the playofs with Crosby out of the lineup during his career. Wild’s Zucker has surgery • Minnesota Wild left winger Jason Zucker has undergone surgery to repair a muscle in his midsection, with recovery expected in time for the start of training camp. The Wild announced Thursday the surgery went as planned for a bilateral core muscle repair. Zucker had 22 goals and 25 assists in 79 games this season, all career highs. The 25-year-old had a plus-34 rating, tied with teammate Ryan Suter for the NHL lead during the regular season. The surgery was performed in Philadelphia by midsection specialist Dr. William Meyers, who has treated abdominal and groin injuries for athletes across pro sports for decades. Golden Knights sign Russian forward • The expansion Vegas Golden Knights have signed free-agent Russian forward Vadim Shipachyov to a two-year, $9 million contract. General manager George McPhee announced the deal Thursday night. The 30-year-old Shipachyov had 26 goals and 50 assists in 50 games this season for SKA St. Petersburg to finish third in the Kontinental Hockey League scoring race. He added four goals and 15 assists in 17 playof games to help St. Petersburg win its second title in three years. Shipachyov is playing for Russia in the world championship in Germany.

20-horse fields, many owners get a case of Derby fever and overestimate their horse’s ability to withstand running 1 ¼ miles in chaotic traic for the first time. “It’s hard to tell an owner who has that chance not to do it,” he said. “They may never see that opportunity again.” If the first Saturday in May hasn’t been Pletcher’s finest hour, the rest of the racing calendar is dotted with his victories in major races. He’s twice won the Belmont Stakes, the final leg of the Triple Crown. He has a knack for developing colts and fillies into Grade 1 stakes winners at an envious clip. He’s racked up a record of more than $336 million in purse earnings and won seven Eclipse Awards as the nation’s leading trainer, another record. He’s won over 4,200 races in a career that began at age 7, cooling out horses for his father. Later, Pletcher went to work as a groom for Lukas. He was promoted to foreman and then assistant trainer before going out on his own. Lukas ran a tight ship, and his influence is evident in Pletcher’s neat-as-a-pin barn and in the younger trainer’s well-groomed, well-dressed appearance. This year, Pletcher’s best Derby hope appears to be Florida Derby winner Always Dreaming, the early co-second choice at 5-1 odds. The colt has won three of five career starts, but he’s been fractious in morning gallops, the opposite of his trainer’s always cool demeanor. In an effort to harness Always Dreaming’s energy, Pletcher switched to longer reins. At first, the colt resisted, bucking and jerking when fitted with them. He calmed down his second day. “The reins basically give the rider more leverage,” the trainer said. “It allows him to control his head more; to take it down (while galloping).” Pletcher’s go-to rider, John Velazquez, will be aboard Always Dreaming, who makes his first start in five weeks Saturday. Tampa Bay Derby winner Tapwrit and one-eyed Patch don’t need special equipment. Tapwrit has worked well leading to the Derby. Patch, owned by famed Calumet Farm, lost his left eye because of infection. He has one win in three career races, all this year, and finished second to Girvin in the Louisiana Derby. Patch will try to buck tradition Saturday. No horse since Apollo in 1882 has won the Derby without racing as a 2-year-old. Pletcher brings his own history to the race, and it goes way beyond the numbers. “If you’d have told me when I started out that when I was 49 years old I’d have won a Kentucky Derby, I’d have signed on for that right on the spot,” he said.

ORTIZ • FROM C1

that’s what we have to do again tomorrow.” Some columnists and radio hosts love to take shots from afar, especially the cowards among us. The ones I respect are willing to own up to their mistakes and face the men they criticize. I was wrong after the Kevin Shattenkirk trade when I thought this Blues team was done, and I refuse to doubt them again this season. “See you for Game 7,” I told Yeo at The Mills on Thursday afternoon after he and I watched a clip of the “Miracle” scene when Herb Brooks gives his famous speech to Team USA before that historic victory over the Soviet Union. Nobody who has seen the Blues and Predators play can sincerely say that one team is significantly better than the other. If the four blind mice who were hired to referee Game 4 hadn’t decided to call one of the most ridiculous roughing penalties you’ll ever see, this best-of-seven series might actually be tied at two games apiece. Games 1, 2 and 4 were each decided by one goal. Game 3 was decided by only two goals even though some of the Blues failed to match the Predators’ intensity Sunday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena. Yeo called out his players’ lack of commitment after that 3-1 loss, and the Blues responded with their best two periods of the series in Game 4. That effort and play will surely be rewarded if they duplicate it in Game 5. More importantly, captain Alex Pietran-

gelo and his teammates have a strong belief in themselves. They have refused to let doubt creep into their dressing room. They found a way to salvage their season after their miserable play in January cost coach Ken Hitchcock his job. They stopped playing like “independent contractors.” Their defense improved, and so did goaltender Jake Allen under Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur’s steady hand. Still, their playoff hopes appeared to have taken a fatal blow when Shattenkirk, the Blues’ second-leading scorer, was traded to the Washington Capitals. “You look at when (Yeo) came in and all the talk and then ‘Shatty’ gets traded and everybody’s saying that we’re writing this season of and we’re just giving up and maybe we’re rebuilding for next year,” forward Ryan Reaves said. “But I think then you look around this locker room and that wasn’t the attitude of anyone of these players and the coaches and everybody in this organization. “I think everybody knew that teams stumble. We stumbled for a month or two, but it’s a long season. You play 82 games for a reason, and we came back strong. We had a good push. We played really good hockey, and we’re taking the exact same mindset into this game tomorrow.” Because I’m a glutton for punishment I reminded the Blues’ tough enforcer that I was the one who erroneously and infamously wrote that the Blues had raised the white flag after the Shattenkirk deal. I then asked Reaves if the Blues’ play after the Shattenkirk trade give him confidence about the team’s ability to persevere

as they try to extend the series to another must-win Game 6 and then a winnertake-all Game 7. “That’s exactly the confidence we’re bringing in,” he said. “We’ve overcome a lot this season. We’ve gone through coaching changes. We’ve gone through being out of the playof (race) to jumping back in and fighting for a playof spot and here we are in the second round. “A lot of things that have happened throughout the season we’ll be bringing into tomorrow.” If the Blues can win Game 5, you have to like their chances because the pressure will shift to Nashville. Surely, the Blues won’t go 0-5 this season at Bridgestone Arena. The Blues cannot aford to think about Game 6, though. All their energy must be on Game 5. “I think we’re filled with confidence,” defensemen Colton Parayko said. “We’ve got a character group in here. We’ve been through a lot this year with ups and downs throughout the season. I think the way the team has handled it has been exceptional. Just being at this point in the season for us is a symbol of how well we’ve approached everything. “It’s fun to be a part of because the quit never goes near here. Our team is full of fight. It’s going to be a fun one tomorrow for sure.” Don’t doubt your St. Louis Blues. I sure as heck won’t. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

Chris Kreider and Nick Holden also scored and Tanner Glass added two assists for the Rangers, who have won four consecutive home games this postseason. “I think our line has been doing a really good job, getting pucks back from the forecheck,” Lindberg said. “We had two good chances today and we were able to bear down.” Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa, and Craig Anderson made 17 saves before being replaced by Mike Condon for the third period. Condon finished with nine stops. “They are a good hockey team. They came out and played their game to a T,” Anderson said. “Had their fans and the momentum. We weren’t able to get anything going.” Senators star defenseman Erik Karlsson also left the game after the second period with an injury. Karlsson played during the first round with two microfractures in one of his feet from blocking a shot late in the regular season. Coach Guy Boucher said he expects both Anderson and Karlsson to play in Game 5 on Saturday at Ottawa. “We felt it was better for him to keep him of the ice in the (third) period,” Boucher said of Karlsson. “He could’ve come back, but we just wanted to make sure. He has a lower-body injury.” Lundqvist has stopped 48 of his past 50 shots after allowing six goals in the Senators’ double-overtime win in Game 2. Lindberg scored both of the Rangers’ second-period goals.

20-horse fields, many owners get a case of Derby fever and overestimate their horse’s ability to withstand running 1 ¼ miles in chaotic traic for the first time. “It’s hard to tell an owner who has that chance not to do it,” he said. “They may never see that opportunity again.” If the first Saturday in May hasn’t been Pletcher’s finest hour, the rest of the racing calendar is dotted with his victories in major races. He’s twice won the Belmont Stakes, the final leg of the Triple Crown. He has a knack for developing colts and fillies into Grade 1 stakes winners at an envious clip. He’s racked up a record of more than $336 million in purse earnings and won seven Eclipse Awards as the nation’s leading trainer, another record. He’s won over 4,200 races in a career that began at age 7, cooling out horses for his father. Later, Pletcher went to work as a groom for Lukas. He was promoted to foreman and then assistant trainer before going out on his own. Lukas ran a tight ship, and his influence is evident in Pletcher’s neat-as-a-pin barn and in the younger trainer’s well-groomed, well-dressed appearance. This year, Pletcher’s best Derby hope appears to be Florida Derby winner Always Dreaming, the early co-second choice at 5-1 odds. The colt has won three of five career starts, but he’s been fractious in morning gallops, the opposite of his trainer’s always cool demeanor. In an effort to harness Always Dreaming’s energy, Pletcher switched to longer reins. At first, the colt resisted, bucking and jerking when fitted with them. He calmed down his second day. “The reins basically give the rider more leverage,” the trainer said. “It allows him to control his head more; to take it down (while galloping).” Pletcher’s go-to rider, John Velazquez, will be aboard Always Dreaming, who makes his first start in five weeks Saturday. Tampa Bay Derby winner Tapwrit and one-eyed Patch don’t need special equipment. Tapwrit has worked well leading to the Derby. Patch, owned by famed Calumet Farm, lost his left eye because of infection. He has one win in three career races, all this year, and finished second to Girvin in the Louisiana Derby. Patch will try to buck tradition Saturday. No horse since Apollo in 1882 has won the Derby without racing as a 2-year-old. Pletcher brings his own history to the race, and it goes way beyond the numbers. “If you’d have told me when I started out that when I was 49 years old I’d have won a Kentucky Derby, I’d have signed on for that right on the spot,” he said.

that’s what we have to do again tomorrow.” Some columnists and radio hosts love to take shots from afar, especially the cowards among us. The ones I respect are willing to own up to their mistakes and face the men they criticize. I was wrong after the Kevin Shattenkirk trade when I thought this Blues team was done, and I refuse to doubt them again this season. “See you for Game 7,” I told Yeo at The Mills on Thursday afternoon after he and I watched a clip of the “Miracle” scene when Herb Brooks gives his famous speech to Team USA before that historic victory over the Soviet Union. Nobody who has seen the Blues and Predators play can sincerely say that one team is significantly better than the other. If the four blind mice who were hired to referee Game 4 hadn’t decided to call one of the most ridiculous roughing penalties you’ll ever see, this best-of-seven series might actually be tied at two games apiece. Games 1, 2 and 4 were each decided by one goal. Game 3 was decided by only two goals even though some of the Blues failed to match the Predators’ intensity Sunday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena. Yeo called out his players’ lack of commitment after that 3-1 loss, and the Blues responded with their best two periods of the series in Game 4. That effort and play will surely be rewarded if they duplicate it in Game 5. More importantly, captain Alex Pietran-

gelo and his teammates have a strong belief in themselves. They have refused to let doubt creep into their dressing room. They found a way to salvage their season after their miserable play in January cost coach Ken Hitchcock his job. They stopped playing like “independent contractors.” Their defense improved, and so did goaltender Jake Allen under Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur’s steady hand. Still, their playoff hopes appeared to have taken a fatal blow when Shattenkirk, the Blues’ second-leading scorer, was traded to the Washington Capitals. “You look at when (Yeo) came in and all the talk and then ‘Shatty’ gets traded and everybody’s saying that we’re writing this season of and we’re just giving up and maybe we’re rebuilding for next year,” forward Ryan Reaves said. “But I think then you look around this locker room and that wasn’t the attitude of anyone of these players and the coaches and everybody in this organization. “I think everybody knew that teams stumble. We stumbled for a month or two, but it’s a long season. You play 82 games for a reason, and we came back strong. We had a good push. We played really good hockey, and we’re taking the exact same mindset into this game tomorrow.” Because I’m a glutton for punishment I reminded the Blues’ tough enforcer that I was the one who erroneously and infamously wrote that the Blues had raised the white flag after the Shattenkirk deal. I then asked Reaves if the Blues’ play after the Shattenkirk trade give him confidence about the team’s ability to persevere

as they try to extend the series to another must-win Game 6 and then a winnertake-all Game 7. “That’s exactly the confidence we’re bringing in,” he said. “We’ve overcome a lot this season. We’ve gone through coaching changes. We’ve gone through being out of the playof (race) to jumping back in and fighting for a playof spot and here we are in the second round. “A lot of things that have happened throughout the season we’ll be bringing into tomorrow.” If the Blues can win Game 5, you have to like their chances because the pressure will shift to Nashville. Surely, the Blues won’t go 0-5 this season at Bridgestone Arena. The Blues cannot aford to think about Game 6, though. All their energy must be on Game 5. “I think we’re filled with confidence,” defensemen Colton Parayko said. “We’ve got a character group in here. We’ve been through a lot this year with ups and downs throughout the season. I think the way the team has handled it has been exceptional. Just being at this point in the season for us is a symbol of how well we’ve approached everything. “It’s fun to be a part of because the quit never goes near here. Our team is full of fight. It’s going to be a fun one tomorrow for sure.” Don’t doubt your St. Louis Blues. I sure as heck won’t. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

Little rust as Johnson returns from injury

Wizards get a win over Celtics in game with 8 technical fouls

W I L M I N GTO N , N .C . • Six

weeks away from competition didn’t keep Dustin Johnson from extending one streak Thursday, with hopes of adding to another. Johnson showed more game than rust at the Wells Fargo Championship, where he missed only two greens — but plenty of putts — for a 2-under 70 that left him four shots behind leader Francesco Molinari at blustery Eagle Point Golf Club. It was Johnson’s 13th consecutive round at par or better. Johnson wasn’t as flawless as he looked while winning three straight tournaments earlier this season, though he had few complaints under the circumstances. It was his first time playing since he slipped in his socks down the stairs at his rental house in Augusta, hurting his back and knocking him out of the Masters. “Since I hadn’t played in so long, I’m happy with the way I played,” Johnson said. “I didn’t score that great, didn’t really hole that many putts. But other than that, I played really well. I think I hit 16 greens and I hit the ball great.” No one was sure what to expect at Eagle Point, where the Wells Fargo Championship moved this year because its traditional venue, Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, is hosting the PGA Championship in August. On greens that were slightly softer, and pure as can be, Molinari ran off five birdies in a seven-hole stretch on the front nine. He closed his round with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th for a 66. That gave him a one-shot lead over Alex Noren of Sweden, J.B. Holmes, Grayson Murray, and Brian Campbell. Murray was the only player to reach 7 under until he finished with back-to-back bogeys. Campbell, playing with Murray, also was tied for the lead until he found the left bunker on the par-5 ninth and failed to get upand-down. Holmes birdied his last three holes for his 67. He played with Phil Mickelson, who shot 71 in his first time out since the Mas-

ters. Just over half the 156-man field was at par or better. Johnson started well enough to act as though nothing has happened since he last played March 26 at the Dell Technologies Match Play, his third straight victory, which strengthened his hold at No. 1 in the world. He was rarely in trouble, made only one putt longer than 10 feet and still shot 70. It was a reasonable start in resuming his quest for a fourth straight PGA Tour victory, which would be the longest streak since Tiger Woods won five in a row at the end of the 2007 season and the start of 2008. “I played a lot better than my score,” Johnson said. He didn’t miss a green until a gust knocked down his tee shot on the par-3 second hole (his 11th hole of the round), and sent it down a slope short of the green. He chipped weakly up the hill to 12 feet and settled for bogey. He closed his round by pulling a drive on the par-4 ninth hole, punching under tree limbs to short of the green, and again pitching it short. He started walking as soon as he hit his 10foot par putt, knowing it was of to the right fpr another bogey. There were no issues with the deep bruise he suffered in his lower left back, which ranks among the freakiest accidents in golf under the circumstances. Johnson was playing the best golf of his life — those three victories were against the three strongest fields of the year — when he hustled downstairs to move his car in the rain because his 2-yearold son was on his way home from day care. He slipped at the bottom of the stairs, crashing onto his back and left elbow. He couldn’t swing well enough to compete at the Masters. But whatever rust he showed this Wednesday in the pro-am was gone, at least on the back nine when he started. “All in all, I’m very pleased with the day.” he said. “I maybe played a little more conservatively. But anything under par was going to be a good score.”

John Wall scored 24 points, Isaiah Thomas was held to 13 and the host Washington Wizards jumped out to a hot start and rode it to a 116-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in a technical foul-filled Game 3 on Thursday night to cut their series deficit to 2-1. The Wizards used a 22-0 first-quarter run to take a 34-12 lead as Thomas and the Celtics kept missing shots and turning the ball over. The game was already a blowout in the second when Washington’s Kelly Oubre Jr. was ejected for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk after the Boston big man was called for an illegal screen. There were eight technical fouls and three ejections. Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic scored 19 points apiece for Washington, which improved to 4-0 at home in the playofs. Washington’s 119 firstquarter points is an NBA record for the first three games of a series. Responding to what coach Scott Brooks deemed a “bad shooting night” in Game 2, Bradley Beal (Chaminade prep) scored Washington’s first seven points and finished with 11. Defensively, the Wizards found a solution to Thomas, who was held to 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting. Thomas, who had some dental work adjusted at halftime, scored seven points at the free throw line. The teams built up quite the hatred during four regular-season meetings, and while hard fouls were part of the first two games in Boston it was nothing like Game 3. Double technicals to Ian Mahinmi and Jonas Jerebko early gave way to Oubre’s outburst as he leapt up from the floor after an illegal screen from Olynyk and bowled over the Boston big man as he was talking to an oicial. Oubre could face a suspension for his outburst. But he wasn’t alone. Pushing and shoving happened throughout, leading to a barrage of technical fouls in the fourth quarter. Celtics coach

Brad Stevens and Brooks each picked up technical fouls well after the outcome had been decided. It didn’t help that things got out of hand early. After starting 16-0 in Game 1 and 16-8 in Game 2 and coughing up big leads, the Wizards extended this one thanks in part to the Celtics shooting 35.1 percent from the floor. Washington has outscored Boston 119-70 in the first quarter. “The Wizards have been a great starting team all year,” Stevens said before the game. “They’ve been a great home team all year.” Washington is now 4-0 at home in the playoffs in large part because of Wall, who continued to find ways to carve through the Celtics’ defense after scoring 40 points and recording 13 assists in Game 2. Even though he shot 7 of 19, Wall got to the line enough to pad the Wizards’ lead and was serenaded with “M-V-P” chants each time he stepped up to take free throws. Hill sits out for Jazz • Utah Jazz starting point guard George Hill did not play against the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 late Thursday night due to left big toe soreness. The injury has lingered throughout the season and kept the ninth-year veteran from 16 regular-season games. Hill has averaged 15.6 points, 3.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds in the playofs. The Jazz have been hesitant to play backup point guards Shelvin Mack, Dante Exum and Raul Neto major minutes during the playoffs, but one of the three was likely to see a significant increase. Coach Quin Snyder could also play more of a threewing lineup including a combination of Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles. The Jazz were 18-15 during the regular season when Hill missed games. Utah trailed the Warriors 0-1 in the secondround series.

GOLF ROUNDUP Top-ranked Ko advances in match play opener Lydia Ko beat home favorite Ana Menendez, and the Jutanugarn sisters set up a second-round showdown in the Lorena Ochoa Match Play tournament in Mexico City. The top-ranked Ko edged Menendez 3 and 2 on Thursday at Club de Golf Mexico in an event that has switched from stroke to match play in format and from November to April on the calendar. Ko will face Jennifer Song, a 3-and-2 winner over Mi Hyang Li in the second round. Against Menendez, Ko took a two-hole lead with birdie wins on the par-5 second and par-4 fourth holes. Menendez took the par-3 ifth with a birdie, and Ko rebounded with birdies on the par-4 seventh and eighth to make it 3-up. Menendez got closer by winning the par-5 10th with a birdie, but Ko took the par-3 14th with a par, and then ended the match with a birdie halve on the par-3 16th. “Hopefully, that last birdie is good momentum going into (Friday),” Ko said Meanwhile, third-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn will face older sister Moriya in the second round.

“I think playing against her will be fun, because even if I don’t make a putt in that hole and she does I’ll feel happy for her,” Ariya said. Ariya beat Amy Anderson 5 and 4, while Moriya topped Alena Sharp 2 and 1. “It’s a little too early this week to see my sister, but ...(Friday) will be fun,” Moriya said. Also on Thursday, Carlota Ciganda, the November winner in stroke play at the then-Lorena Ochoa Invitational, topped Mexico’s Gaby Lopez 5 and 3. Michelle Wie routed Lizette Salas 6 and 5. “I love match play,” Wie said. “It reminds me of Solheim Cup. It brings back lot of memories. I love it. I had fun today and Lizzete was a really good opponent. I chipped down for eagle twice.” Cristie Kerr topped Brittany Altomare 2 and 1. Kerr won three weeks ago in Hawaii, and lost to Haru Nomura on Sunday on the sixth hole of a playof in Texas. Second-ranked So Yeon Ryu, the ANA Inspiration winner, is taking the week of. The event is the LPGA Tour’s irst match-play tournament since 2012. Associated Press

NBA NOTEBOOK Spurs sufer a big blow with loss of Parker One of coach Gregg Popovich’s top priorities in the inal weeks of the regular season was making sure the San Antonio Spurs got veteran point guard Tony Parker healthy and in rhythm for the playof push. More than seeding or homecourt advantage, Popovich believed the Spurs needed Parker in order to stay competitive against the other heavyweights in the Western Conference playofs. Now that Parker will miss the rest of the postseason with a left leg injury, the Spurs will be tested like they rarely have been before. The Spurs announced on Thursday that Parker will miss the rest of the postseason with a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his left leg. The injury will likely require surgery to repair, meaning the Spurs will have to go through the rest of the postseason without their loor leader. “If we don’t have him, it’s going to be a lot tougher to hang with teams like Houston and Golden State, the Clippers, that kind of thing,” Popovich told The Associated Press before the season ended. While the 34-year-old Parker

is not the dynamic playmaker he was in his younger days, he has still been hugely important to what the team does. After the Spurs were blown out in Game 1, Parker responded with 18 points in 25 minutes before getting injured to help San Antonio rebound to even the series. He appeared to land awkwardly while taking a shot with 8:34 to play Wednesday night and crumpled to the court. Popovich said after the game that it didn’t look good, and the Spurs’ fears were conirmed after an MRI on Thursday. The team said there is no timetable yet for his recovery. Lowry misses practice • All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors missed practice Thursday because of his sprained left ankle, and the team says more tests are scheduled to determine the severity of the injury. Toronto coach Dwane Casey said Lowry is being listed as questionable to play in Friday’s Game 3 of the Raptors’ Eastern Conference semiinal series against Cleveland. Associated Press

W I L M I N GTO N , N .C . • Six

weeks away from competition didn’t keep Dustin Johnson from extending one streak Thursday, with hopes of adding to another. Johnson showed more game than rust at the Wells Fargo Championship, where he missed only two greens — but plenty of putts — for a 2-under 70 that left him four shots behind leader Francesco Molinari at blustery Eagle Point Golf Club. It was Johnson’s 13th consecutive round at par or better. Johnson wasn’t as flawless as he looked while winning three straight tournaments earlier this season, though he had few complaints under the circumstances. It was his first time playing since he slipped in his socks down the stairs at his rental house in Augusta, hurting his back and knocking him out of the Masters. “Since I hadn’t played in so long, I’m happy with the way I played,” Johnson said. “I didn’t score that great, didn’t really hole that many putts. But other than that, I played really well. I think I hit 16 greens and I hit the ball great.” No one was sure what to expect at Eagle Point, where the Wells Fargo Championship moved this year because its traditional venue, Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, is hosting the PGA Championship in August. On greens that were slightly softer, and pure as can be, Molinari ran off five birdies in a seven-hole stretch on the front nine. He closed his round with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th for a 66. That gave him a one-shot lead over Alex Noren of Sweden, J.B. Holmes, Grayson Murray, and Brian Campbell. Murray was the only player to reach 7 under until he finished with back-to-back bogeys. Campbell, playing with Murray, also was tied for the lead until he found the left bunker on the par-5 ninth and failed to get upand-down. Holmes birdied his last three holes for his 67. He played with Phil Mickelson, who shot 71 in his first time out since the Mas-

ters. Just over half the 156-man field was at par or better. Johnson started well enough to act as though nothing has happened since he last played March 26 at the Dell Technologies Match Play, his third straight victory, which strengthened his hold at No. 1 in the world. He was rarely in trouble, made only one putt longer than 10 feet and still shot 70. It was a reasonable start in resuming his quest for a fourth straight PGA Tour victory, which would be the longest streak since Tiger Woods won five in a row at the end of the 2007 season and the start of 2008. “I played a lot better than my score,” Johnson said. He didn’t miss a green until a gust knocked down his tee shot on the par-3 second hole (his 11th hole of the round), and sent it down a slope short of the green. He chipped weakly up the hill to 12 feet and settled for bogey. He closed his round by pulling a drive on the par-4 ninth hole, punching under tree limbs to short of the green, and again pitching it short. He started walking as soon as he hit his 10foot par putt, knowing it was of to the right fpr another bogey. There were no issues with the deep bruise he suffered in his lower left back, which ranks among the freakiest accidents in golf under the circumstances. Johnson was playing the best golf of his life — those three victories were against the three strongest fields of the year — when he hustled downstairs to move his car in the rain because his 2-yearold son was on his way home from day care. He slipped at the bottom of the stairs, crashing onto his back and left elbow. He couldn’t swing well enough to compete at the Masters. But whatever rust he showed this Wednesday in the pro-am was gone, at least on the back nine when he started. “All in all, I’m very pleased with the day.” he said. “I maybe played a little more conservatively. But anything under par was going to be a good score.”

John Wall scored 24 points, Isaiah Thomas was held to 13 and the host Washington Wizards jumped out to a hot start and rode it to a 116-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in a technical foul-filled Game 3 on Thursday night to cut their series deficit to 2-1. The Wizards used a 22-0 first-quarter run to take a 34-12 lead as Thomas and the Celtics kept missing shots and turning the ball over. The game was already a blowout in the second when Washington’s Kelly Oubre Jr. was ejected for charging and knocking over Kelly Olynyk after the Boston big man was called for an illegal screen. There were eight technical fouls and three ejections. Otto Porter and Bojan Bogdanovic scored 19 points apiece for Washington, which improved to 4-0 at home in the playofs. Washington’s 119 firstquarter points is an NBA record for the first three games of a series. Responding to what coach Scott Brooks deemed a “bad shooting night” in Game 2, Bradley Beal (Chaminade prep) scored Washington’s first seven points and finished with 11. Defensively, the Wizards found a solution to Thomas, who was held to 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting. Thomas, who had some dental work adjusted at halftime, scored seven points at the free throw line. The teams built up quite the hatred during four regular-season meetings, and while hard fouls were part of the first two games in Boston it was nothing like Game 3. Double technicals to Ian Mahinmi and Jonas Jerebko early gave way to Oubre’s outburst as he leapt up from the floor after an illegal screen from Olynyk and bowled over the Boston big man as he was talking to an oicial. Oubre could face a suspension for his outburst. But he wasn’t alone. Pushing and shoving happened throughout, leading to a barrage of technical fouls in the fourth quarter. Celtics coach

Brad Stevens and Brooks each picked up technical fouls well after the outcome had been decided. It didn’t help that things got out of hand early. After starting 16-0 in Game 1 and 16-8 in Game 2 and coughing up big leads, the Wizards extended this one thanks in part to the Celtics shooting 35.1 percent from the floor. Washington has outscored Boston 119-70 in the first quarter. “The Wizards have been a great starting team all year,” Stevens said before the game. “They’ve been a great home team all year.” Washington is now 4-0 at home in the playoffs in large part because of Wall, who continued to find ways to carve through the Celtics’ defense after scoring 40 points and recording 13 assists in Game 2. Even though he shot 7 of 19, Wall got to the line enough to pad the Wizards’ lead and was serenaded with “M-V-P” chants each time he stepped up to take free throws. Hill sits out for Jazz • Utah Jazz starting point guard George Hill did not play against the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 late Thursday night due to left big toe soreness. The injury has lingered throughout the season and kept the ninth-year veteran from 16 regular-season games. Hill has averaged 15.6 points, 3.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds in the playofs. The Jazz have been hesitant to play backup point guards Shelvin Mack, Dante Exum and Raul Neto major minutes during the playoffs, but one of the three was likely to see a significant increase. Coach Quin Snyder could also play more of a threewing lineup including a combination of Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles. The Jazz were 18-15 during the regular season when Hill missed games. Utah trailed the Warriors 0-1 in the secondround series.

Lydia Ko beat home favorite Ana Menendez, and the Jutanugarn sisters set up a second-round showdown in the Lorena Ochoa Match Play tournament in Mexico City. The top-ranked Ko edged Menendez 3 and 2 on Thursday at Club de Golf Mexico in an event that has switched from stroke to match play in format and from November to April on the calendar. Ko will face Jennifer Song, a 3-and-2 winner over Mi Hyang Li in the second round. Against Menendez, Ko took a two-hole lead with birdie wins on the par-5 second and par-4 fourth holes. Menendez took the par-3 ifth with a birdie, and Ko rebounded with birdies on the par-4 seventh and eighth to make it 3-up. Menendez got closer by winning the par-5 10th with a birdie, but Ko took the par-3 14th with a par, and then ended the match with a birdie halve on the par-3 16th. “Hopefully, that last birdie is good momentum going into (Friday),” Ko said Meanwhile, third-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn will face older sister Moriya in the second round.

“I think playing against her will be fun, because even if I don’t make a putt in that hole and she does I’ll feel happy for her,” Ariya said. Ariya beat Amy Anderson 5 and 4, while Moriya topped Alena Sharp 2 and 1. “It’s a little too early this week to see my sister, but ...(Friday) will be fun,” Moriya said. Also on Thursday, Carlota Ciganda, the November winner in stroke play at the then-Lorena Ochoa Invitational, topped Mexico’s Gaby Lopez 5 and 3. Michelle Wie routed Lizette Salas 6 and 5. “I love match play,” Wie said. “It reminds me of Solheim Cup. It brings back lot of memories. I love it. I had fun today and Lizzete was a really good opponent. I chipped down for eagle twice.” Cristie Kerr topped Brittany Altomare 2 and 1. Kerr won three weeks ago in Hawaii, and lost to Haru Nomura on Sunday on the sixth hole of a playof in Texas. Second-ranked So Yeon Ryu, the ANA Inspiration winner, is taking the week of. The event is the LPGA Tour’s irst match-play tournament since 2012. Associated Press

NBA NOTEBOOK Spurs sufer a big blow with loss of Parker One of coach Gregg Popovich’s top priorities in the inal weeks of the regular season was making sure the San Antonio Spurs got veteran point guard Tony Parker healthy and in rhythm for the playof push. More than seeding or homecourt advantage, Popovich believed the Spurs needed Parker in order to stay competitive against the other heavyweights in the Western Conference playofs. Now that Parker will miss the rest of the postseason with a left leg injury, the Spurs will be tested like they rarely have been before. The Spurs announced on Thursday that Parker will miss the rest of the postseason with a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his left leg. The injury will likely require surgery to repair, meaning the Spurs will have to go through the rest of the postseason without their loor leader. “If we don’t have him, it’s going to be a lot tougher to hang with teams like Houston and Golden State, the Clippers, that kind of thing,” Popovich told The Associated Press before the season ended. While the 34-year-old Parker

is not the dynamic playmaker he was in his younger days, he has still been hugely important to what the team does. After the Spurs were blown out in Game 1, Parker responded with 18 points in 25 minutes before getting injured to help San Antonio rebound to even the series. He appeared to land awkwardly while taking a shot with 8:34 to play Wednesday night and crumpled to the court. Popovich said after the game that it didn’t look good, and the Spurs’ fears were conirmed after an MRI on Thursday. The team said there is no timetable yet for his recovery. Lowry misses practice • All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors missed practice Thursday because of his sprained left ankle, and the team says more tests are scheduled to determine the severity of the injury. Toronto coach Dwane Casey said Lowry is being listed as questionable to play in Friday’s Game 3 of the Raptors’ Eastern Conference semiinal series against Cleveland. Associated Press

Gonthier talk about it, you would think it was a game of regular polo rather than the aquatic kind. “The guys decided in that second quarter to kind of put the stirrups on and get serious about riding the horse,” the Fort Zumwalt West water polo coach said. Down by four goals entering the second quarter, the Jaguars scored five straight to turn the game into a seesaw battle they eventually won in sudden death overtime 10-9 over John Burroughs in a Missouri Water Polo district tournament play-in game Thursday at Burroughs. “We blended the team this time where we incorporated some of our JV players into the mix, so that’s why I think the game was a little bit closer than what we would have liked.” Gonthier said. Fort Zumwalt West (8-9-1), the No. 16 seed, advances to take on topseeded powerhouse St. Louis University High (194) in a first-round matchup at 12:15 p.m. Saturday at Lindbergh High. “Both teams were like, ‘I don’t know if I want to play them,’ but at the end of the day, it’s still competing and somebody wants to win,” Gonthier said. The game-winner Thursday came out of the hands of junior Jackson Spencer with 1 minute 25 seconds to go in the first sudden-death overtime period. “I was really happy, especially because it was a good shot — high corner, right where I was aiming,” Spencer said. “It just felt really good.” Burroughs (6-14), the No. 17 seed, jumped all over Zumwalt West with the four-spot in the first

quarter on goals by Eddie Ko, Ethan Orchard, Matthew Lorberg and Sam Holmes, but Bombers coach Chris Lubniewski knew it wouldn’t be that easy the rest of the way. “We played them to a buzzer-beater last game (a 6-5 Zumwalt West win on April 20), so we knew it was going to be as close of a game this time,” Lubniewski said. “Really, we were just out there to have fun, not get discouraged by the score and keep it as close as we could.” The Jaguars answered with second quarter goals from Devin Gonthier, Sam Leung, Kevin McElfresh, Kevin Drake and Jon Zuccarello in a span of 4:01 to take a 5-4 lead before the Bombers’ Jan Kasal tied it 51 seconds before halftime. Kasal, a sophomore, then scored the only two goals of the third quarter to complete a natural hat trick and give Burroughs a 7-5 lead. He then answered a goal by the Jaguars’ McKay Rodabough with his fourth goal of the contest to push the lead to 8-6

with 2:55 left in the game. “He’s definitely one of our younger players, but it was really nice to see him score,” Lubniewski said of Kasal. “We’re a team comprised of a lot of new players. We only have two or three veterans, so we’re not losing a lot of players next year. I’m excited for next year to see how well we do.” But, Drake scored two more goals — one just four seconds after Kasal’s goal and another 48 seconds later — to tie the game 8-8. Overtime consists of a pair of three-minute periods with each team getting an equal chance to shoot at the more desirable deep end. Neither team scored in the first three-minute extra session, but Spencer and the Bombers’ James Steinkamp traded goals in a 16-second span at the start of the second extra session to make it 9-9. The Jaguars then won the coin toss for the first sudden death period and elected to shoot at the deep end. The teams would have traded ends after that three-minute period, but

Spencer made sure that wouldn’t be an issue after taking a pass from Max Frank, who had stolen the ball on defense. “Normally, you want to drive all the way, but I saw a guy on the other team and I thought he was going to come up,” Spencer said. “He ended up doing that, but I was far enough away from him to take the shot without him interfering with me.” And with that tally, the Jaguars move on to face the monumental task of trying to slay the Junior Billikens, who have won 18 championships, including the last two and eight of the previous 11. “I always tell my team when we’re going to play SLUH or one of those top 10 teams, ‘what are we going to take from the game?’” Gerard Gonthier said. “At the end of the day, I want my players to come out of that game better than they went in. It’d be pretty awesome to pull of an upset, right? I think that opportunity always exists, but you got to have a couple things fall into place.”

BASEBALL NOTEBOOK

There was no screaming or shouting from the coaches. There wasn’t even a team meeting. It was just a normal group conversation after the Belleville West baseball team dropped a Saturday doubleheader to Triad and Salem in early April. “We challenged the guys because we set goals at the beginning of the season and we kind of said that we weren’t playing at the level to achieve them,” Belleville West coach Todd Baltz said. “I think they just looked at themselves in the mirror and said, ‘we’re not getting it done’ and they found another gear and whatever it was, they took of and here we are.” The Maroons have won 11 in a row after a 5-6 start. West, No. 6 in the STLhighschoolsports.com rankings of large schools, is 16-6 overall and 10-0 in the rugged Southwestern Conference. “We started out a little bit slow, we were right about the .500 mark and started getting some good pitching from Chad (Sauls), Jack (Lanxon) and Luke (Vallandingham),” Baltz said. “We’ve kind of rode those three guys through this mini-streak we’re on. We’re getting good pitching, enough ofense and solid defense.” Lanxon leads the team in innings pitched (42), strikeouts (49) and wins (6). Sauls is second in each category with Vallandingham third. Belleville West was without Vallandingham before the streak. His return to the rotation served as a much-needed boost for the entire team.

SOFTBALL Jerseyville at Granite City, 4:15 p.m. Staunton at Civic Memorial, 4:15 p.m. Althof at Highland, 4:15 p.m. O’Fallon vs. Chatham Glenwood, at Highland, 4:15 p.m. Belleville West at Triad, 4:15 p.m. Dupo vs. Columbia, at Triad, 4:15 p.m. Roxana at Carlinville, 4:30 p.m. Piasa Southwestern at Gillespie, 4:30 p.m. Wood River at Alton, 4:30 p.m. Teutopolis at Edwardsville, 6:30 p.m.

“I think Luke was such a big part last year that when he got back it was a shot in the arm to rejuvenate the team as a whole,” Baltz said. “We’ve got two guys now who we’ve got a chance to win every day and Chad is right there with them. The guys see that and raise the level of their game a little bit and chip in on ofense and defense.” Vallandingham sufered an arm injury just before the season and made his first start on April 6 against Edwardsville. Belleville West still has four conference games left including a rematch with O’Fallon on May 16.

LINDBERGH DUO HAS NO FEAR Lindbergh senior Danny Dobbs (.563) and junior Ryan Waller (.505) lead the Flyers in on-base percentage. Both have taken numerous walks throughout the year, but they’ve also reached base the painful way. Dobbs and Waller are tied for the area lead in hit by pitches with 13. “The thing I say about them is that they’re fearless when it comes to stepping into the plate,” Lindbergh coach Darin Scott said. “They crowd the plate and are looking for something they can handle and that’s the position they need to take to get to that pitch they like. Guys have tended to come in on them and they don’t get out of the way. They’re not going to shy away from an inside pitch.” Dobbs and Waller take pride in their ability to get on base. And they have turned the HBP race into a rivalry of sorts. “It’s kind of become a comical thing now because the two of them are just kind of competing against

each other and the other guys get into it as well,” Scott said. “When one gets hit, the other one says you’ve got to catch up.” Lindbergh (16-12, 4-3 Suburban West) will host Mehlville on May 12 in the regular-season finale.

EUREKA DEALS WITH FLOOD Eureka coach James Dafron has seen his baseball field flood numerous times since he took over the program in 2005. “Seven or eight,” Daffron counts. “But this one and the 2015 one are the (worst) I’ve ever seen. Sometimes it floods in the outfield and it comes up and then goes right back down and we’d play the next day. This is probably going to push us out the rest of the year unless we go deep into the playofs.” Due to the weather, Eureka’s games have temporarily been put on hold as the team and family members shore up the school and the downtown area from the flood waters. “Most of them helped in the high school and downtown Eureka with sandbags,” Daffron said. “That was the No. 1 priority to protect the school and protect the town and I know most of all the baseball players and parents were doing that.” Eureka hasn’t played a game since April 27 when it lost to Oakville 3-1, in what might have been the final home game of the season. The Wildcats have attempted to reschedule certain games and could have a doubleheader against Parkway Central and Rockwood Summit on Saturday at Parkway Central, again weather permitting.

When in doubt, the answer to this question is: divide and conquer.

Create individual conversation areas within a large space to make the room feel cozy and inviting. Create unique spaces within the room for all the functions it must serve. Using furniture

such as a sofa to help divide the space will also help. Dau Furniture ofers a unique piece called the Gathering Island that really adds visual division and additional seating. The Gathering Island by Stickley Furniture is made of solid wood and sits behind a sofa, serving as a sofa table and a counter height pub table. The Gathering Island is wired to plug in lamps and other electronics. Pull up a counter stool and watch a movie with the family while getting some

work done on a laptop or eat a meal in the living room without the stress of dropping food on the sofa. The designers at Dau Furniture would love to help design and arrange your space with many of the great products that Dau ofers.

P3 Homebuyers Have Work to Do

John Gormley is CEO of the St. Louis Realtors®, an 8,000-member professional organization representing all aspects of real estate in the Greater St. Louis region.

The St. Louis REALTORS® Housing Report for March showed rising prices and declining inventory. Months of inventory, which means the amount of time it would take to sell all houses on the market if no others were added, is down to four months. Economists say 6.5 months is the ideal balance between supply and demand. Days on the market is down to 92 days from 150 last March.

every year – especially before applying for a mortgage. Review the report for any issues or instances of identity theft. If you aren’t sure what to do to improve your credit, ask your St. Louis REALTOR® for advice or resources to help get started. Learn the diFFerence between prequaLiFication and pre-approvaL Pre-qualiication is an initial check of credit based on basic information shared with a lender. Preapproval is an in-depth look at a buyer’s inances that includes verifying income, expenses and credit history. The result is a pre-approval letter stating how much the lender is willing to let the buyer borrow. This tells sellers that a buyer is serious and has already taken the irst steps toward seeking funding. Pre-approval puts the buyer in a much stronger position to compete with other buyers.

Meanwhile, the median sales price for all homes in St. Louis city and country combined is up 7 percent year-over-year, to a still very affordable $159,900. The problem is, even if you can afford it, where are you going to ind a home to buy in St. Louis? Any homes that come on the market are likely to receive multiple offers overnight. The competition among buyers will be especially ierce as we head deeper into the busy spring and summer real estate season.

Factor in your LiFeStyLe A mortgage lender may approve a buyer for a higher loan, but that doesn’t mean a buyer should borrow it all. Examine the inancial situation and future plans before proceeding. A buyer should know their inancial situation and future plans better than the lender.

FirSt thingS FirSt If you’re looking to buy a home in St. Louis, ind a St. Louis REALTOR® to represent your interests. A REALTOR® will help put you in the best position to ind – and buy – your next dream home. There’s no downside, and it’s foolish to try and go it alone.

don’t overLook aSSiStance programS Many homebuyer-assistance programs exist and the qualifying criteria vary. Some programs also have different criteria based on the city or county in which the buyer has an interest to live. Ask your St. Louis REALTOR® about Down Payment Resource, a tool to determine which assistance programs, if any, could

A buyer doesn’t have to set low expectations about their home purchase. But in this strong seller’s market, a buyer can’t be too picky either. don’t get hung up on SmaLL StuFF Negotiations between buyers and sellers can get emotional, but you don’t have to let that happen to you.

They’re not. Only agents who belong to the National Association of REALTORS® and pledge to adhere to a strict code of ethics may call themselves REALTORS®.

On Saturday, the 15th annual “Bufalo Soldiers & Bicycles” commemorates the journey with reenactments, games, scavenger hunts, a choir competition, a barn dance and more. Before the oicial event begins, there will be a historical bike ride throughout St. Louis that begins at 10 a.m. at the Biddle Street Trailhead. (If loodwater hasn’t subsided, the backup date is June 17.)

Daryl Hall (left) and John Oates

Musical brotherhood Daryl Hall and John Oates are still together and drawing crowds 45 years later BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ / SPECIAL TO GO! MAGAZINE

ven with all the success achieved over the years by the duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates — the awards, the accolades, the parade of nearly three dozen Top 40 hits, sales of approximately 40 million records and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 — there are two distinct eras of the partnership that Hall cites as being the most enjoyable and artistically satisfying for him. “The first is when I just started out; traveling around with John and moving beyond our home base of Philadelphia, playing shows all over the world,” Hall says by phone from his home in

E 6

Charleston, S.C. “Both of us were seeing things for the first time. “Other than that, right now is my favorite time. Everything has come together in the way that I was hoping that it would. It just feels really good right now.” For Hall and Oates, “right now” marks 50 years since the two musicians first met, playing in rival outfits at a band competition, and 45 years since the release of their first album, 1972’s “Whole Oates.” “It astounds me that I’ve known John for half a century, and yet it doesn’t,” Hall says. “The world has changed so much since we were kids.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.05.17-05.11.17

MOST-SHAZAMED SONGS FOR MAY 2 1 “I’m the One” (DJ Khaled feat. Justin Bieber & Quavo & Chance the Rapper & Lil Wayne) 2 “That’s What I Like” (Bruno Mars) 3 “Humble” (Kendrick Lamar) 4 “First Day Out” (Tee Grizzley) 5 “Wish I Knew You” (The Revivalists) 6 “Nozebleedz” (Ray Jr. feat. Ripp Flamez) 7 “Say You Won’t Let Go” (James Arthur) 8 “Prblms” (6LACK) 9 “Believer” (Imagine Dragons) 10 “Something Just Like This” (The Chainsmokers & Coldplay)

But I don’t really think about that at all. I’m not a person who looks much into the past.” The secret of keeping that longterm relationship and partnership going, he adds, is keeping both of those elements in perspective. “First, we were friends before we were partners,” he says. “It’s more like a brotherhood, actually. I just feel like John is family. We don’t spend a lot of time together. When we’re of the road, we don’t see each other at all. We live in diferent parts of the country. We have solo worlds and individual lives that are very active. “But when we get together to play our songs, it feels good. We don’t have any problems.” Their career as a duo had its fallow periods, and both have released solo albums. But somehow over the years, Hall and Oates never broke up. “People were anxious, for whatever reasons, to split us up every time I would do a solo record,” Hall says. “‘Oh, Hall and Oates broke up.’ But that wasn’t the case at all. We had time apart, especially in the late ’80s and early ’90s. But we were still working together, still playing shows.” These days, they’re still a major draw, evidenced by an arena tour that brings them to Scottrade Center on Saturday. At this late date, what makes touring at that level still possible? “I think that the sea change in music was good for me,” Hall says: “People forming their own opinions about music; not being told what’s good, what’s bad, what’s hot, what’s not, what’s new, what’s old. Those kinds of things went away. And that allows people like me to have a more timeless quality.” Also, he says, his musical series “Live From Daryl’s House” has given the public a wider understanding of his artistry. The show, which has run since 2007, at first online and later in syndication on TV, finds Hall and his

band jamming and hanging out with guests — some of them musically likeminded, others not so much. “It showed the world what I do for real, what I’m really about,” Hall says. “(The show) is full of surprises. You never know what’s going to happen. I never know what’s going to happen, and if I don’t, the audience certainly won’t. It keeps us on our toes.” The show wrapped its most recent season in December. Negotiations for its next season are ongoing. Hall is also working on a new solo album, which he hopes to finish in the late summer and release early next year. Without wanting to reveal too many details, he says: “It’s very band-oriented. It’s raw and funky and soulful and gospel-y, and it’s got very intense lyrics.” As for his partner, Oates recently wrote a book about his career, “Change of Seasons,” and naturally, Hall is a big part of it. Hall says he’s fine with the book and that Oates sent him chapters to read and make comments along the way. But Hall won’t be doing his own book anytime soon. “My lyrics are my version of that,” he says. The concert, Hall says, is not merely a cavalcade of hits, although Hall and Oates would be more than capable of doing just that. “We have so many songs to play,” he says. “We have more than we have time to play. Even hits. “But I think within that, we’re changing the texture of the show. There’s more depth to it. It’s not just one song after the other. There’s more arrangement changes. We’re playing with the songs in slightly diferent ways. I think you’re gonna find it very interesting.” WHAT Daryl Hall and John Oates, Tears for Fears • WHEN 7 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue • HOW MUCH $35-$129.50 • MORE INFO ticketmaster.com

Michelle Wolf reaches her goal: HBO comedy special BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

Comedian Michelle Wolf, a writer for “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” is about to make her biggest splash yet: with her own one-hour stand-up special on HBO. She also has several nights booked at Helium Comedy Club as part of her national tour.

• What’s your live standup show like? I do a lot less political stuf than what you see on “The Daily Show.” I do that all day; I don’t want to have to do it at night, too. And politics can be a little tiring right now. I like talking about big social issues but from a woman’s perspective, and I eventually get into more personal stuf. • What issues do you touch on? Transgender bathrooms, immigration, terrorism, body image. • Who are your comedic

influences? Louis C.K. Colin Quinn. Chris Rock. • What’s it like working with Trevor Noah? It’s been great. He’s very fun to work with, supereasygoing and relaxed. It’s a nice work environment. It’s interesting to see his perspective as someone who’s not from here but dealt with a ton of upheaval — a black guy from South Africa. • How is it diferent from working with Seth Meyers on “Late Night,” where you were a writer from 2014-2016? They’re such diferent types of comedians. Trevor is more of a storyteller. Seth is a set-up and punchline guy. It’s completely diferent perspectives. • Was it a diicult transition? It wasn’t tough. But “The Daily Show” is 100 percent

• What happened to your Grown-Up Annie character from “Late Night”? Will we see her again? I’m secretly hoping at one point in the future she makes a reappearance. It was superfun. But things can only get worse for her. • What can you say about your HBO special? It’s very exciting. It’s going to be in August, and we’re taping in New York. I’ve been on tour since the end of December preparing for it. It’s going to be some version of the show I’m doing in St. Louis. I’m tweaking it, adding and tightening jokes. I’m glad to finally be able to talk about it. • Most of the hot comedians are going to Netflix these days. What made you go with HBO? I had it as a goal. I wanted HBO. It’s the iconic one. And I also thought, since everyone was going to Netflix. And I really wanted people to see the special. There’s so many specials out right now. I thought this was the best opportunity for people to see it. WHAT Michelle Wolf • WHEN 7:30

Not limited to country, the Mavericks push the genre’s boundaries BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ / SPECIAL TO GO! MAGAZINE

he Mavericks have never had a problem living up to their name.

T

8

For the most part, that tendency to go against the grain has been musical. Though nominally a

country band, the veteran quartet — vocalist-guitarist Raul Malo, guitarist Eddie Perez, drummer Paul Deakin and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden — has always colored outside the lines of the genre’s tightly drawn boundaries, or more correctly, those of its commercial radio format.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.05.17-05.11.17

But what might once have been a hindrance in terms of selling the band to the public has over the years become its greatest strength, as the Mavericks move deftly between musical genres ranging from polka to lush ’60s pop to Latin sounds on its 11th album, “Brand New Day.” It’s an apt title, not merely in terms of the music but also because of the way in which the band has decided to buck the system business-wise. “Brand New Day” is the first studio album for the band’s own label, Mono Mundo (a live efort, “All Night Live: Volume 1,” preceded it in 2016). And the band recently started managing itself. “It’s a bit of a fourheaded monster,” Malo says by phone from his home in Nashville, Tenn. “We’ve been doing this a while now, and we know what needs to happen to take care of the business side, to keep the lights on.” With the realities of the music business as it stands today, the Mavericks decided to allocate resources where they were most necessary. “It just came to a point where we needed a saxophone player more than we needed a manager,” Malo says. As for starting a custom label, it had nothing to do with dissatisfaction between the Mavericks and their previous label, Big Machine. Instead, it was more about making and putting out records on their own schedule and, once again, resource allocation. “It just came down to the fact that we really needed to take

control of all aspects of our business,” Malo says. “Everything about this band is made to order and customized. We don’t fit in a neat category anywhere; we don’t fit in a neat genre. We’ve just always had a diferent path, and so why not have the business side reflect that as well?” “Brand New Day” kicks of with a brash, rollicking polka called “Rolling Along,” which is about … well, smoking weed. “It’s pretty selfexplanatory,” Malo says with a hearty laugh. Notably, the arrangement features the first banjo to ever appear on a Mavericks song. “We don’t call it bluegrass; we call it goodgrass,” Malo says. In the case of “Easy as It Seems,” it’s the lyrics that take on added intrigue. Perhaps it’s a song about a personal conflict that involves cruelty and ignorance. Or maybe it’s something more, something political. Lyrics such as “Take a look around you, it’s easy not to see/Building walls between us doesn’t fix a thing,” certainly suggests the latter. “It certainly seems pointed in that direction,” Malo says. “But really, it’s not about one particular person. It was inspired by the process of the presidential election. Not the results, because it was written long before that. But the process, and how vitriolic and how hateful and explosive and divisive the rhetoric got.” Malo has gone outside his art and taken a more direct and outspoken

“WE DON’T CALL IT BLUEGRASS; WE CALL IT GOODGRASS” RAUL MALO

route, railing on Twitter against the president’s proposed immigration ban. Putting his feelings in the public record has earned Malo more than a few calls to “shut up and sing.” “You’ve gotta take that with a grain of salt,” he says. “The only reason they say that is because they disagree with me. If they agreed with me, they’d be buying tickets to the show.” He is prepared for more blowback when a documentary he’s hosting, “Havana Time Machine,” airs this fall on PBS. Malo, who is of Cuban descent and hails from Miami, recently traveled to Cuba to meet with musicians and artists there. Malo feels passionately about the continuing Cuban embargo and says it’s “no longer a political issue — it’s a humanitarian issue. It’s archaic, it’s cruel and it’s hypocritical. It’s bad for business and makes no sense on any level, other than the personal revenge of a few select Cubans in exile.” The trip itself and the filming of the documentary “wasn’t politically heavy at all,” he says. Still, “any sort of reaching out or any sort of communication with Cuba is seen by some as a treasonous act. So who knows what I’ll be labeled after that?” WHAT The Mavericks • WHEN 8 p.m. Saturday • WHERE

Cultural celebration Cherokee Street’s Cinco de Mayo festival is fun, but it also helps bring neighborhood change BY VALERIE SCHREMP HAHN / VHAHN@POST-DISPATCH.COM

L

ucha Libre Wrestling, street tacos, bounce houses, a mechanical bull and margaritas as big as your head are just a few of the good things happening Saturday on Cherokee Street. The Cherokee Street Development League, which organizes “Cinco de Mayo: A Cherokee Street Festival,” also puts together other functions. The nonprofit started in 2014 to bring arts, culture and fun to the neighborhood. The group is behind renovations to a basketball court at Love Bank Park at Cherokee Street and Nebraska Avenue. It also secured a grant for a playground in Gravois Park, which will be installed June 1. “The playground is 20 years old, has a lot of holes, is just not clean and (is) unsafe

for the kids,” says Anne McCulloch, the Cherokee Street liaison and the director of the nonprofit. “This was an opportunity to connect Cherokee Street to the surrounding neighborhood — and to do something great for the kids in the neighborhood.” As for the basketball court, McCulloch lives nearby and hears kids and teenagers playing there every day. The hoop was installed in late 2015. A Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District grant has helped landscape the property; if the Cherokee group raises the other half of the money, the park will have the only permeable basketball court in the state, McCulloch says. Proceeds from the annual Cinco de Mayo festival have helped the development league get on its feet, and it hopes to raise more for community projects.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.05.17-05.11.17

Cinco de Mayo on Cherokee Street started 15 years ago, and McCulloch was happy to read recently that Travel Pulse noted it as one of the five best places to celebrate the day in America and Mexico. Cinco de Mayo isn’t widely observed in Mexico, and organizers here try to respect that. The day commemorates the anniversary of a Mexican victory over French forces at Puebla in 1862. “It’s truly grown into a celebration of other cultures on Cherokee Street,” McCulloch says. One of three stages showcases hip-hop, soul and funk. Another stage features rock ’n’ roll, punk and alternative music. The main stage has traditional and not-sotraditional Mexican and Latin music. A highlight is the People’s Joy Parade at the traditional time of 1:11 p.m. Anyone can march among the art cars, crepe-paper-decorated floats, drag queens, bike brigades and Gigante puppeteers. More than 100 vendors will set up shop along the street, and children can do crafts and play games in the St. Louis Public Schools Kids Zone. Dynamo Pro Wrestling will present Lucha Libre Wrestling at 3 and 5 p.m. at Cherokee Street and Iowa Avenue. McCulloch says this is one of the most diverse festivals around. “To me, that’s one of the greatest things about this festival,” she says. “You can see a cumbia band and then one of St. Louis’ best hip-hop acts and then Jack Grelle, who is touring the country right now. And to see people dancing in the streets and the best street food you’d find in Mexico you’ll find on Cherokee Street. You can sample everything, and you get to drink out of a pineapple.” WHAT “Cinco de Mayo: A Cherokee Street Festival” • WHEN 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Cherokee Street, between Nebraska and Jeferson avenues • HOW MUCH Free • MORE INFO cincodemayostl.com

S

t. Louis’ summer concert outlook is sunny anytime there’s a show booked at Busch Stadium or the Dome at America’s Center, the two biggest concert venues in town. This summer looks to be extra bright: Busch Stadium welcomes metal gods Metallica and “Piano Man” Billy Joel (a late-summer show Sept. 21), and the Dome gets the long-overdue return of Guns N’ Roses. We’ll also see the return of Chris Stapleton, this time at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, following his 2016 gigs at LouFest and the Fox Theatre; some must-see shows by Green Day, John Legend, Muse, Roger Waters, Ryan Adams, the Chainsmokers, Jimmy Bufett, Trey Songz, Sam Hunt, Sigur Ros, Eric Church and Kehlani; a surprise club concert by actor Kiefer Sutherland; and a strong showing of hip-hop with Chance the Rapper, Future, Migos, J. Cole, Rick Ross, T.I., Travis Scott, DJ Premier and Smino. Here’s your guide to the season. ➼

Intergalactic romp ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ reacquaints viewers with some of the big screen’s most lovable characters ★★★½ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

eter Quill (Chris Pratt), aka Star-Lord, may not always get along with the band of scalawags whose company he keeps, but together they’re virtually unbeatable. It doesn’t hurt that he has a thing for the green-hued Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who claims not to reciprocate his feelings but may be bluing. Along with humorless hunk Drax

(Dave Bautista) and anthropomorphic raccoon Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Quill and Gamora have built a reputation throughout the universe as heroes for hire. But old habits die hard, as they discover when one of the team commits an irresponsible act that incurs the wrath of goldenskinned priestess Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki). As if being targets of Ayesha’s attack pods wasn’t enough, the Guardians

must cope with another distraction: Ego (Kurt Russell), a flashy extraterrestrial who claims to be Quill’s father. Ego is eager to get to know more about Quill, who’s understandably mifed: Why has it taken his dad so long to make contact? But all may not be as it seems. Meanwhile, Quill’s old associate Yondu (Michael Rooker) is having troubles of his own, and the precocious Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) is struggling to make sense of his place in the cosmic scheme of things. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is a fun movie that reacquaints viewers with some of the most lovable characters ever to conquer the big screen.

But this sequel lacks some of the vivacity that made the previous installment such an exhilarating surprise. Although writer-director and St. Louis native James Gunn deserves credit for refusing to simply deliver more of the same, “Vol. 2” might have been a bit more focused. Still, it’s an imaginative romp that once again reflects Gunn’s unique and irreverent sensibility. Pratt is engagingly rascally as Quill, and Saldana brings a sassy charisma to the no-nonsense Gamora. But as might be expected, Baby Groot steals the film.

Strictly business ‘Norman,’ starring Richard Gere, is a cautionary tale about ambition gone awry ★★★ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@ POST-DISPATCH.COM

orman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) describes himself as a businessman and is always prepared to hand you his card. But he doesn’t seem to transact business in an oice, and if he has any employees they must all be on vacation. Walking the streets of New York, and contemplating yet another encounter with power brokers who are

barely aware that he exists, Norman appears to be at once purposefully engaged and serenely detached. But he’s forever on the lookout for the right opportunity. That comes along in the form of Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), a prominent Israeli politician who’s clearly in need of a friend — and mightily impressed when Norman insists on buying him an outrageously expensive pair of shoes. Their bond

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.05.17-05.11.17

promises to finally validate Norman’s claims to be a man of influence. But politics can be as tricky as friendships are ephemeral — and loyalties can be even trickier. Norman’s connection with Eshel brings him under the scrutiny of people who may not have the best interests of either at heart. Among them is the sharp-eared Alex (Charlotte Gainsbourg), whom Norman may live to regret engaging in conversation. Norman has always known just whom to flatter. But does he know whom to trust? “Norman” is a cautionary tale about ambition gone awry. Working from his own screenplay, director

Joseph Cedar (“Footnote”) captures the frenetic allure of New York, which emerges as very much a character in its own right. The film is smart about the role of pressing the flesh in a city in which who you know is at least as important as what you know. And Gere, who gets to the essence of Norman’s desire to belong to the upper echelons of society, proves to be inspired casting. It’s a late-career triumph for an actor whose gifts haven’t always been appreciated. Norman may be a mere wannabe, but “Norman” is a small gem.

No easy answers Uncomfortable ‘Dinner’ to discuss a family emergency is illed with incredible performances ★★½ BY KATIE WALSH / TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

O

ren Moverman is a challenging filmmaker, one who doesn’t want to make things easy and palatable for audiences, but complicated, nuanced, sensorially heightened. The result: films that sometimes are uncomfortable to watch. In the case of “The Dinner,” that discomfort fits perfectly with the subject matter. Based on the bestselling book by Dutch author Herman Koch, “The Dinner” is a gripping family drama that deals with mental illness, past traumas, and conflicting moralities against the backdrop of a lavish and extravagant dinner. There are no easy answers to

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

be found in this tale, and Moverman’s formal experimentation makes that experience manifest for the audience. While the plot takes place over several hours during a prolonged dinner, the story itself contains years of history. Congressman Stan Lohman (Richard Gere) invites his brother, Paul (Steve Coogan), and sister-inlaw, Claire (Laura Linney), to dinner with his wife, Katelyn (Rebecca Hall), in order to discuss an urgent family dilemma — a heinous crime involving their children. They converge upon an exquisitely appointed establishment, replete with every fussy foodie trend, and proceed to wreak emotional havoc on one another, the host, the sommelier, the waitstaf — anyone who

gets close enough to the blast range. Paul, a writer and former high school teacher, brings to the table decades of resentment for his suave politician brother, repressed trauma over his wife’s past illnesses and an unmedicated mood disorder. His erratic, unfiltered patter is at first endearing — his horror at the fastidious food rituals is a necessary tonic for the stufy, pretentious preening of the restaurant. But as the night progresses, he escalates from provocative to downright rude and confrontational. What’s initially funny becomes aggressive, and Coogan masterfully balances Paul’s evolution, over the course of the evening and in flashbacks, in a virtuosic and riveting dramatic performance. Through the script, which he adapted, Moverman carefully shifts our allegiances to the characters. While we’re initially aligned with Paul and Claire, we slowly come around to Stan, who represents the moral compass within this hurricane of emotion and

manipulation. The flashbacks ofer the context for Stan’s mistrust of Paul’s judgment, their past conflicts and grievances with each other. Despite the outbursts, cajoling and wheedling, Stan somehow remains steadfast in his convictions, offering a North Star of righteousness. In “The Dinner” and his last directorial efort, “Time Out of Mind,” Moverman seems enamored of experimenting with sound design as a way to bring the audience into a sensory cinematic world. In “The Dinner,” multiple layers of sound create the atmosphere of the restaurant, as well as mimic the aural overload of this experience for someone in the room. Background conversation is turned up, interfering with the main conversation; characters talk over one another, rendering their statements unintelligible. During a particularly tense climatic scene, the ding of emails piling into the inbox of an open laptop serves as a distracting, near infuriating metronome. “The Dinner” is at its most compelling when wrestling with the central conflict concerning the children — it’s horrifying but fascinating. While Moverman’s cinematic style can be physically uncomfortable to experience, it’s impossible to turn away from the quartet of incredible performances. The story is wrapped up messily but beautifully, and by the end it feels like everyone has shared a cathartic transformative experience.

‘Beauty and the Beast ★★★½ PG • 2:09 • Emma Watson and Dan Stevens star in this entertaining remake of the 1991 animated musical. Not quite as good as the original but well worth seeing. Directed by Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls”).

‘The Boss Baby’ ★★½ PG • 1:37 • Alec Baldwin voices a bossy infant who’s strikingly similar to his “30 Rock” alter ego. The plot is convoluted, but young viewers will be amused by the slapstick humor. JODY MITORI

Time.” It’s not unreasonable to assume that “Mulan’s” Niki Caro and “Captain Marvel” co-director Anna Boden will get that, too. But it’s a void that’s especially notable during the summer, when there are a seemingly endless string of male-directed films with $200 millionplus budgets in theaters each week. It’s not that women don’t direct summer blockbusters. In the past 10 years of top studio summer releases there’s been Elizabeth Banks’ “Pitch Perfect 2,” Phyllida Lloyd’s “Mamma Mia!” and Anne Fletcher’s “The Proposal,” all of which grossed from $287.5 million to $609.8 million on budgets under $52 million. Experience is a Catch-22 for women. Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy got into hot water last year when she said that while finding a female director for a “Star Wars” film is a priority, they want to make sure that they’re set up for success. “You can’t come into them with essentially no experience,” Kennedy told Hollywood trade Variety. Jenkins is “as stunned as anybody” that there have been so few — especially because she and many of her female peers regularly handle comparable budgets working in television. “A pilot that you shoot in nine days for $10 million ends up being a very big parallel to this. It’s the same dollar per day,” Jenkins said. “So many men have crossed over. ... it’s the same job, just on a larger scale.” “Wonder Woman,” Jenkins said, is even on the higher end of superhero pic budgets — not, as many have reported, in the $100 million to $120 million range. Even though “Wonder Woman” is only her second feature, Jenkins’ work has always been steady. Hollywood has never stopped trying to get her to make films. There’s already talk of a “Wonder Woman” sequel. Dwayne Johnson has her on his shortlist to direct the Disney pic “Jungle Cruise,” too, although he’s not sure she knows that yet. “Patty has that really cool edge. ... I felt like she could be a really cool choice for a movie like ‘Jungle Cruise’,” Johnson said. “Plus, you know what? I’m just a big fan.”

Casino, and Kelly English Steakhouse closed after two years. For its 2010 debut, River City Casino imported Cincinnati restaurateur Jef Ruby to open his signature steakhouse (called Jef Ruby’s Steakhouse). The steaks I ate there remain, to this day, the best I’ve eaten in St. Louis. The restaurant combusted in less than a year. This decade, the area’s casinos have stuck to the tried-and-true: generic sports bars and steakhouses, panAsian restaurants and, of course, the bufet. Which was why I was intrigued last fall when River City replaced Lewy Nine’s Cafe with Cibare Italian Kitchen.

OUR FOOD RATINGS ★ Fair ★★ Good ★★★ Excellent ★★★★ Extraordinary

I know. An Italian restaurant in St. Louis. How rare. But the marketing push behind Cibare emphasized the bona fides of chef de cuisine Pierpaolo Pittia, who hails from Udine, Italy. And the menu trumpets an 800-degree wood- and gas-fired oven and housemade pasta. Cibare is located on the southern end of River City, along the corridor between the casino proper and the hotel lobby. It shares this corridor with two other restaurants, Burger Brothers and the Beerhouse, and sitting in its dining room, looking out on the corridor and the casino floor beyond it, made me feel like I was in the half-finished food court of an upscale shopping mall. I didn’t notice much noise from the casino, which is good. I did notice the cigarette smoke, which is bad. River City is 7 years old. Ventilation systems and air fresheners can mitigate the stale stink, but they can’t eradicate it. There’s no good transition from the phrase stale stink, so: The best dishes at Cibare are the housemade pastas. The menu marks Nonna’s Spaghetti & Meatballs (half-order $10, full $16) as a house specialty, and the dish satisfies with its springy noodles in a marinara sauce with the natural sweetness and perfectly calibrated acidity of a ripe tomato. The meatballs are tender, though the flavor is muted, without any Maillard-reaction oomph. Strozzapreti (half $10, full $17) are cavatelli-like noodles tossed with braised beef, olives, caramelized onion and pancetta and then topped with a gremolata and smoked-paprika

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU Grapeseed, chef Ben Anderson’s acclaimed restaurant in the Southampton neighborhood, has closed unexpectedly. The inal service was Sunday night. A statement announcing the closure was posted on Grapeseed’s website: “After a gratifying three-year run, we have closed Grapeseed to be able to take advantage of other opportunities. We have enjoyed our wonderful location in SOHA. We will miss both our customers and this great area of the city. Thanks to all our customers and friends that helped make the past three years a fun and successful time in our lives.” Grapeseed opened in September 2014 at 5400 Nottingham Avenue.

“crunch.” The crunch didn’t land much of a smokedpaprika wallop, but the gremolata, along with the olive and onion, were sensible accents for the beef. I use the past tense for the strozzapreti, because Cibare changed its menu the day after my final visit (and when it was too late for yet another), and the strozzapreti was an unfortunate victim. Also removed, with less regret on my part, was beef alla vaccinara ($24), underseasoned braised beef served over mascarpone-whipped polenta in a flat sauce. The dish was halfhearted all around, with “charred” carrots that looked as if they’d been waved over the grill. The house-specialty entree is Chicken Scallopine Sofia ($23): two pieces of sauteed chicken with spinach, capers and tomato in a buttery, lemony sauce over spaghetti. It’s pleasant — I like the idea of the spinach and tomato in the sauce over the spaghetti as a light pasta course — but as a signature dish it lacks pizzazz. The wood-fired oven bakes Neapolitan-style pizzas — or, as the menu styled them until the recent change, “Neopolitan” pizzas. Like the Chicken Scallopine Sofia, these are pleasant enough, but they lack the memorable crust to compete

with the area’s other Neapolitan purveyors. The texture is thinner, the flavor less pronounced. The topping combinations are sensible (salami, sausage, four cheeses); my favorite was the Bianca ($13), with a béchamelsauce base, garlic, spinach, and fontina and mozzarella. Among the appetizers — and yet another house specialty — is toasted ravioli ($9). Cibare fills the plump half-moons with a blend of pork and beef, but the result is the same as the usual beef-only mixture, a modestly flavored gruel. It’s Cibare in a nutshell: a safe bet if you’re already in the casino and need something to eat, but nothing you can’t find elsewhere — as good and likely better. Which makes Cibare, for all its nods to current trends, casino dining in a nutshell, too.

Is it just me, or does “Last Man on Earth” seem to have gotten too serious and unfunny? Its weird scheduling and Sunday time slot mean I haven’t seen one episode this season. It seemed as though “Homeland” did well this season. Now that the finale has aired, what did you think? I just can’t with “Homeland.” I know people still love it, but I quit about the time Brody exited. Since then, I’ve only seen a few episodes here and there. I have heard some complaints about the season finale, though.

PHOTO: FX

I loved the original “Prison Break,” and the new one is not disappointing! It helps that Michael and Lincoln are still easy to look at. I’m still engaged by those characters. It felt as if the bad reviews came from people who didn’t like the original series and vice versa.

Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis in “Feud: Bette & Joan”

Who do you think did the better acting job in “Feud”: Susan Sarandon or Jessica Lange? I’d say Sarandon, although both are really good. As with the movie, it helps to play the showier character rather than someone as closed-of as Joan Crawford. I like “24: Legacy,” but it’s all really familiar: rogue CTU employees doing what’s right instead of following orders; corrupt government oicials; bad,

@gailpennington

threatening managers coming to take over CTU. Fun but nothing new. I’m sure they tried to make it as classic “24” as possible to make up for the absence of Jack Bauer. Remember, though, that after Season 5, the original “24” got very redundant, too. I didn’t mean to stop watching “Legacy,” but I have. Is there some kind of law/regulation that requires people in commercials to be labeled (usually in tiny print)? For example, when a @tubetalkpd

Find weekly TV picks, live chats and celeb news ➙ stltoday.com/tv

doctor is speaking to us in an ad, the label says “actor.” Then another satisfied customer is labeled as a “paid appearance.” There’s an insurance ad with vets where all appearing are labeled as veterans except for two who are identified as actors. Why? Who cares? What diference does it make? I don’t know, but I’m guessing they don’t want to deceive, or to be accused of that, especially with professions, like medicine, that have ethical considerations.

They disclose that a person isn’t a doctor and a patient is a paid spokesperson. But they don’t have to disclose that someone is an actor playing a real estate agent. I am behind on almost all my dramas. I get caught up on sitcoms — I guess because they just require 23 minutes. What should I do to get caught up? Does this call for a vacation day of just sitting on the couch watching television? I’ve started doing drama catch-up via the Roku at bedtime. I finished “Legion,” “Big Little Lies” and

“The Missing” that way, and I caught up on “Feud.” (FX stuf streams on Hulu.) I plan to finish “Designated Survivor,” too. I’m still watching “The Fosters.” Am I the only one? I can’t stop. Callie in peril at the end of each season is not getting old for me. Why, oh why? It must be that hypnotic signal they transmit through the screen. But this is actually a show I know a lot of people love, so it’s not just you. I saw that Reese Witherspoon and

Nicole Kidman are saying “Big Little Lies” may have a second season. Any truth to this? Liane Moriarty, who wrote the book, said producers (who would include Witherspoon and Kidman) had asked her to think about a new story. She said it wouldn’t be a novel but maybe something that could be a script. I’m opposed.

I really liked “Big Little Lies,” but I had a problem in that we didn’t know what really motivated Zoe Kravitz’s character to do what she did. It almost seemed like it came out of nowhere. I guess I’ll have to go back and read the book. She was abused as a child. You’re welcome. Now you don’t have to read the book. So Spectrum and FX are going to muscle me into getting Hulu? Be sure to get the commercial-free option. It’s $11.99 but worth every penny. That is great to know about FX streaming on Hulu. Hulu has a lot of other network and cable series streaming, too, and if one you watch is there, you can stream without commercials and forget using the DVR.

ALLEGRO RED DIESEL MOTORHOME

An Entry Point to Tifin Luxury

Sponsored content by Byerly RV

Since 1972 the Tifin name has inspired the image of quality in the minds of RV customers. Bob Tifin started Tifin Motorhomes from humble beginnings in Red Bay, Alabama. Since then the privatelyowned family company has become the deinition of quality and customer satisfaction in the RV industry. Tifin has produced the top three selling diesel brands in America for all of recent history. The Phaeton, Allegro Bus and Allegro Red have been dominating the diesel motorhome marketplace since the recession. Combining all of Tifin’s diesel motorhomes, the company outsold their competition by 47 percent in 2016. The Allegro Red is Tifin’s entry point for their reliable diesel coaches. It is built on a Freightliner chassis and offers a 360 horsepower, 6.7-liter electronic diesel turbocharged aftercooled Cummins engine, combined with an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission. With a smooth ride and conident power, the Allegro Red can offer interior features to match any luxury diesel in production. The

All Tifin motorhomes are built with handmade cabinetry from their in-house woodworking shop. The hand-laid tile loor adds a layer of elegance and durability that is unmatched at the Allegro Red’s price point.

Allegro Red, just like all Tifin motorhomes, stands apart from the pack in quality, elegance, and value. Bob Tifin’s values are embedded throughout the company and because of their culture of family and customer service, Tifin builds every motorhome with the thought of the buyer in mind.

SHOULD YOU GO WITH A HYBRID OR A STANDARD GASOLINE ENGINE? CAR TALK Dear Car Talk: “I own a 2006 Highlander Hybrid, and I think it is the best vehicle I have ever owned in my 64 years. I trade vehicles every 10 years, and I want to buy a new Toyota Highlander. Should I get the hybrid, or the standard gasoline engine? I know there are social advantages to the green Highlander, but I don’t think the extra cost justiies the gas savings these days. Are there other automotive beneits to the hybrid engine better acceleration, etc.? What is your present opinion of the state of the art of the hybrid engine today, and the pros and cons? Thanks!” — Ken Well, you’re right, Ken: There are social advantages to hybrids. Especially if you’re looking to attract dates who care about the environment. There are environmental advantages to hybrids, too, and some people buy them purely for that reason. And there are mechanical advantages. For instance, in all the years we’ve now been servicing Toyota Priuses, we’ve probably done two brake jobs. Because hybrids use regenerative braking to recapture the vehicle’s motion, the traditional brakes get used very lightly. In a standard Highlander, you’d probably replace the brakes once, or maybe twice, in 100,000 miles.

Exhaust systems on hybrids last a lot longer, too, because when you’re running under battery power, you’re not creating exhaust. And, more importantly, you’re not creating exhaust in stop-and-go driving, where the greatest amount of rustinducing moisture is produced.

(10 years and 150,000 miles in California). But if you go past the warranty period and need a battery, you could be looking at close to $5,000 in a Highlander. Maybe they’ll get cheaper in the years between now and when you need one, but who knows?

While you’d expect any Highlander’s engine to last at least the 10 years, hybrid engines typically last longer, because they’re used less of the time. When you’re doing stop-andgo driving, the engine is just sitting there, enjoying the free ride.

And if you drive 20,000 miles a year for 10 years and put 200,000 miles on a car before you trade it in, you could conceivably need a battery toward the end. If you’re truly unlucky, you also could need an inverter someday, which is even more expensive. But that’s more rare.

So those are the beneits. The primary downside is the hybrid battery system. While Toyota says it expects the battery to last the life of the car, there’s no guarantee you won’t need one at some point. Just like a transmissionis supposed to last the life of a car,not all of them do. That’s how Aamco has stayed in business all these years.

So with all that in mind, now let’s do the math on the fuel savings. Let’s say the difference in cost between the standard Highlander and the Highlander Hybrid is about $5,000. And let’s say you drive 20,000 miles a year for 10 years. The EPA says the regular all-wheel-drive

The hybrid battery is warranted for eight years and 80,000 miles

By Ray Magliozzi - Automotive Writer Highlander gets an average of 20 mpg and the hybrid gets 28 overall. So, if we assume a gasoline price of $3.50 a gallon for the next 10 years, the Highlander would cost you $35,000 in gas. The hybrid would cost you $25,000. So you’d save enough to cover the cost of the hybrid power train and a battery if you need one. And you’d get more dates. You’d also get an additional 100 miles in range on each tank before having to stop for gas, if that makes a difference. So, it’s up to you, Ken. A lot of people don’t drive enough — or keep a car long enough — to recoup the money spent on a hybrid. You can plug in your own annual mileage and your guess about gas prices and see what the math says. But it looks like the hybrid might make good sense for you. Auto repairs can be costly!

This deal is from a Junior competition in Europe some years ago. We imagine that East thought he was the only player at the table who hadn’t doubled yet and he wanted to join the party. The opening trump lead went to the seven, nine, and king. South cashed the ace of diamonds and followed with a low diamond to West as East shed a club. Declarer won the club shift with dummy’s ace

and crossed to his hand with the king of spades. A diamond was ruffed with dummy’s 10 and over-rufed with the jack, leaving this position: NORTH ♠A 9 ♥3 2 ♦Void ♣J 4 3 WEST EAST ♠Q 7 6 4 ♠J 10 ♥Void ♥A 5 ♦K ♦Void ♣10 8 ♣K Q 9 SOUTH ♠8 ♥Q 8 4 ♦10 8 7 ♣Void East led a club in an efort to weaken declarer’s trumps, but South was in control. Declarer ruffed in his hand and ruffed another diamond in dummy. Should East choose to overruf, South would have established his diamonds and still hold one more trump than East. Should East discard instead, South would ruf a club, cross back to dummy with the ace of spades, and lead a black card to score his queen of trumps “en passant.” East is of somewhere asking himself why he doubled.

DEAR ABBY

Mom wants to rewrite her will

Dear Worthless • Could it be possible that your daughter and her family are actually busy? Not knowing how you raised your children, it’s hard to render an opinion, but from your reaction, you appear to have a troubled relationship with this daughter. Rather than disinherit her, try to find out what motivated her to

text what she did so fences can be mended. If that’s not possible, then you have every right to reallocate your assets as you wish. Dear Abby • I have a huge problem with low self-esteem. For most of my life I was ridiculed, teased and bullied, not only by my classmates and co-workers, but also by my own family. It started when I was very young. Because of this, I find it incredibly diicult to date anyone. I always seem to find it easier to talk down about myself than to make myself happy. — SELFESTEEM ISSUES IN OHIO Dear Issues • The seeds of low self-esteem were planted when you were so young you didn’t understand what was being done was a form of abuse. Because it continued for so long, you should seek professional help to overcome it. It is important that you get it from a licensed therapist. Your physician or your insurance company can refer you to qualified people.

Dear Abby • Prior to meeting me, my husband was in a longterm relationship with a woman, “Karen,” who was also a close friend of his sisters. Their relationship and the friendships ended due to Karen’s behavior. Now, 10 years later, the sisters have befriended Karen again. She is invited to all family parties and weddings. It is very uncomfortable for my husband and me, as we feel we don’t have the option to skip these events. — UNCOMFORTABLE IN ILLINOIS Dear Uncomfortable • If you and your husband prefer not to socialize regularly with Karen, you certainly don’t have to. However, your discomfort with her does not entitle you to insist your sistersin-law exclude her from all of their parties. Attend the ones you must, make the best of them and send your regrets for the rest. 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.

Dear Abby • I divorced my narcissistic husband after our children were raised. Over the years, I have tried to have a relationship with all of my children and their families. When I asked one of them for a three-day weekend with her children, she texted me saying they all had a lot going on. Then she added, “Maybe next year.” I may not BE here next year! I know she may never read this, but it doesn’t matter to me if it will help someone who does read it. I have decided to change my will. If I’m not worth my children’s time, they don’t deserve my money. Your thoughts? — WORTHLESS UP NORTH

TV FRIDAY

Full bar? No bar? It’s up to the hosts

Dear Miss Manners • When you have dinner guests, must you offer a full bar or no bar at all? We don’t typically have anything on hand but martini fixings and scotch, but we do stock beer and wine for guests. Gentle Reader • Etiquette, being more interested in the “how” than the “what,” concentrates on serving the drinks rather than mixing them. What you serve — if you serve any alcohol at all — is up to you. Miss Manners does require that if you hide the good wine from undiscriminating palates, then the discriminating palates (including the host’s) will have to settle as well. And requests for nonalcoholic beverages should be honored without argument or inquiry. Dear Miss Manners • I enjoy giving my friends and family tickets for concerts, plays or sporting

events, and everyone seems to enjoy them. However, it seems that there is an unspoken rule that gifts of tickets must be given in multiples. Many people have an issue attending an event by themselves, and if you give them a single ticket, you may be setting them up for an uncomfortable experience. Therefore I always give tickets in pairs. However, the last time I did this, the recipient thought that I was implying that he had to invite me as his guest. I didn’t mean anything like that! On yet another occasion, my brother gave me six tickets to a play for my birthday. While I appreciated his generosity, I had a hard time finding five people who were available to come, and it caused a lot of stress. My brother himself was unavailable to attend, which made the situation worse. How many tickets are appropriate?

Gentle Reader • In the absence of specific knowledge, tickets should be given in pairs, and acknowledged, like all gifts, with a thankyou letter. There is no obligation for the recipient to reciprocate immediately or in kind — in other words, to give the second ticket back to the giver. One of etiquette’s virtues is that by establishing rules — sometimes arbitrary ones — it manages expectations. A pair of tickets is the most likely to be useful without being inconvenient — surely reasonable goals for a present. But such rules are intended to be modified by “local knowledge”: There is no ban on providing enough tickets for the family to attend a family show.

Massage technique can drain lymph luid FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • My 90-year-old mother has been a warrior over the years with her health. She had lung cancer and had her lung removed; had breast cancer and had her left breast removed; and had colon cancer and had a little of her colon removed. She’s been cancer-free for almost 10 years. About a year ago, she had carpal tunnel surgery on her left wrist because she was in so much pain with it. It took months for her to recover from it, but finally she did feel better. She had bloodwork about a month and a half ago, and her left hand and arm swelled up beyond belief. The only medication she has been on is furosemide. My mother prefers home remedies like vinegar for arthritis. She is still out and about to lunch and dinner, and shopping and just recently gave up driving. She’s very active, but is about 70 pounds overweight. She started seeing a new doctor because hers retired, and he took her of the water pill and suggested massage therapy, which she starts next week. Is there anything else my mom can do to relieve the pressure and pain of her enormous arm and hand? — M.M.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

CORNERED • By Mike Baldwin NON SEQUITUR • By Wiley Miller

Answer • The most likely cause for the swelling in her hand and arm is lymphedema. People (almost always women) with breast cancer are at high risk for lymphedema due to the damage done by the cancer, surgery, radiation or some combination. Women who are very overweight are at particularly high risk. I am concerned that the reason it came on years after the breast cancer treatment was the surgery on the carpal tunnel. (However, even a blood draw from the arm on the side of the cancer can cause it. People with breast cancer should get blood draws and blood pressures drawn from the other side.) Furosemide (Lasix) is not an efective treatment for lymphedema, but I regret to say I see it used frequently. It sounds like her new doctor is more up-todate, as current treatment usually involves manual lymphatic drainage, which massages the fluid from the fingers, hands, forearm and arm toward the chest, literally squeezing the fluid out of the loose tissues and back into the lymphatics, where it can be returned to the circulation. Trained therapists perform this, and can train the patient (or sometimes a family member) to do the massage themselves. Compression garments often are worn during the day.
