PAY-TO-PLAY EXPANDS SWEENEY TO PLEAD GUILTY; RALLO TO BE ARRAIGNED BY JEREMY KOHLER

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

SID HASTINGS

Sheila Sweeney, the former CEO of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges on Friday.

CLAYTON — Federal authorities on Thursday revealed they had brought criminal charges against two key figures in the federal pay-to-play case that brought down former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger. Sheila Sweeney, the former CEO of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, is scheduled to plead guilty to criminal charges in U.S. District Court in St. Louis on Friday. And businessman John Rallo, one of Stenger’s earliest campaign do-

nors, is scheduled to be arraigned on federal charges on Friday. Stenger last week admitted to directing Sweeney to award a $130,000 marketing contract to Rallo through the St. Louis County Port Authority. Sweeney’s lawyer, Justin Gelfand, said: “I can confirm Miss Sweeney is scheduled to plead guilty tomorrow to an information” — a formal criminal charge that does not require a grand jury vote — “and in doing so she is taking full responsibility for her conduct.” Rallo’s lawyer, John Rogers,

could not be reached on Thursday. The existence of the criminal cases was revealed Thursday in an advisory emailed to area news reporters from the U.S. attorney’s office with the schedule for court appearances by Sweeney and Rallo. Details about the cases, including the specific charges faced by Sweeney and Rallo, were not revealed. The Partnership ousted Sweeney from her $500,000-peryear post in January after a

John Rallo, one of Stenger’s earliest campaign donors, is scheduled to be arraigned on federal charges on Friday.

Erby resigning from council to join Page’s administration

GETTING READY FOR THE SHARK TANK

BY JEREMY KOHLER

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

CLAYTON — Hazel Erby, the vice chair and longest-standing member of the St. Louis County Council, said Thursday she is resigning to join County Executive Sam Page’s administration. Her resignation leaves two vacancies on the seven-member council after Page’s appointment to replace Steve Stenger, who resigned last week. As both vacant seats were controlled by Democrats, the GOP now controls the council 3-2. Republicans last controlled the council in 2006. Because the council lost its chairman and vice chair, under the county charter, the council would now have to select one of its members to serve as “presiding officer” and carry out the chairman’s duties for the remainder of the year. The charter does not clarify how the presiding officer is to be selected.

Pope requires all sexual abuse to be reported BY NICOLE WINFIELD

Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis issued a groundbreaking new church law Thursday requiring all Catholic priests and nuns around the world to report clergy sexual abuse and cover-ups by their superiors to church authorities, in a new effort to hold the Catholic hierarchy accountable for failing to protect their flocks. The law provides whistleblower protections for anyone making a report and requires all dioceses to have a system in place to receive the claims confidentially. And it outlines internal procedures for conducting preliminary investigations when the accused is a bishop, cardinal or religious superior. Abuse victims and their advocates said the law was a step forward, but not enough since it doesn’t require the crimes to be reported to police and essentially tasks discredited bishops who have mishandled abuse for decades with policing their own. It’s the latest effort by Francis to respond to the global sex abuse and Please see POPE, Page A7

Mo. House backs off in-state tuition for some immigrants

GOP subpoena for Trump’s son spurs party fight

• State public defenders secure additional $500,000 • Two public defender juvenile units get $913,786 • $301 million in bonds approved to repair bridges BY JACK SUNTRUP

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri House on Thursday doused a move that would allow public money to go toward in-state tuition for students without lawful immigration status who are living here. The vote came as House and Senate members were parsing the latest draft of the state higher education budget. On Tuesday, a House-Senate conference committee stripped four-year-old budget language that forbids statefunded schools from using state money to offer in-state tuition to the students in question. But House GOP leadership criticized that plan, and on the House floor Thursday, members voted against the new wording, an unusual move that triggered behind-the-scenes negotiations throughout the day. The Legislature is constitutionally re-

quired to send all budget bills to Gov. Mike Parson by 6 p.m. Friday. The Senate agreed shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday to renegotiate the higher education bill, clearing the way for the two chambers to approve a dozen less controversial budget bills that fund everything from K-12 education to transportation to Medicaid. The ill-fated proposal on in-state tuition came from Sen. Jason Holsman, DKansas City. In the conference committee Tuesday, he had offered what he called a compromise — allowing state money for in-state tuition but still banning state scholarships for the students — as the panel was debating funding for higher education. That language was ultimately embedded in the budget after two Senate Republicans sided with the committee’s four Democrats.

WASHINGTON — Just days after the Senate’s top Republican declared “case closed” on the Trump campaign’s involvement with Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a GOP-led Senate committee investigating the issue subpoenaed the president’s son, sparking anger from Republicans aimed at Sen. Richard Burr. Burr, a North Carolina Republican in his third term in the Senate, has largely been able to shield the Senate Intelligence Committee from partisan bickering. But Republicans teed off on Burr for the decision to subpoena Donald Trump Jr. — after the release of a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s declaration on the Senate floor. “Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn’t get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed,” Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, tweeted, linking to the Axios story that broke the news of the subpoena.

ST. LOUIS — Four men have been charged with assault in a wild crime from March in which gunmen fired shots from the sunroof of a speeding car as they chased another motorist near City Hall. Charged this week in the March 21 shooting are Chrisean M. Gray, 23; Kardaye Moore, 19; Jermie Edwards, 26; and Daevon Evers, 19. They were indicted Tuesday but were not in custody. The four men were in a black Chrysler 300, racing south on Tucker Boulevard in pursuit of a Toyota Corolla driven by a 16-year-old boy, police say. The shooting was at 5:48 p.m. that day — a weekday — near South Tucker and Spruce Street. The teenager they were chasing was critically injured after being shot three times, then crashed his car. The attack left the streets strewn with dozens of bullet casings. Police were quick that night to say that the shooting was unrelated to a Blues game, which was starting about 7 p.m. at nearby Enterprise Center. No one else was injured, though two vehicles not involved in the chase were hit by gunfire, as was the nearby Robert A. Young Federal Building, police said at the time. A day care operates in a portion of the building. Gray lives in the 800 block of North Leonard Avenue in St. Louis. Moore lives in the 700 block of Barber Street in East St. Louis. Edwards lives in the 5800 block of Devonshire Avenue in St. Louis. Evers lives in the 3900 block of St. Ferdinand Avenue in St. Louis. Each faces four charges: first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and two

According to a probable cause statement by St. Louis Police Detective Brent Fincher, footage from surveillance cameras downtown was key in their investigation. Video showed that the teen in the Corolla was trying to get away from the Chrysler. Fincher said Edwards was driving the Chrysler, Moore was a front-seat passenger and Gray and Evers were in the back. “The surveillance footage

showed at various times that gunfire was emanating from multiple people in various locations in the vehicle, including two individuals shooting from the sunroof at the same time,” Fincher said. Police recovered four guns and say ballistics tests confirm that all four guns had been used in the attack. As he tried to drive away from his attackers, the fleeing teen was shot three times and crashed into a retaining wall near Chouteau Avenue and South Tucker Boulevard,

Fincher said. Police found the teen in the street, suffering from bullet wounds. Edwards, still driving the Chrysler, led police on a chase, which ended at Olive Street and Compton Avenue when the Chrysler crashed. Police arrested all but Edwards there. He ran off and was arrested later. The scene of the shooting was south of City Hall, near public parking and the former police department headquarters. It also is about a block east of the Enterprise Center, where the St. Louis Blues faced the visiting Detroit Red Wings that night. A police commander who briefed reporters that night called it an isolated incident and said it was safe for fans to come to the Blues game.

Former lawyer repeatedly lands in jail, rejects bail bond is $250. While there is a movement to eliminate cash bail to even the playing field for rich and poor defendants, Greathouse represents the individual who may not want to get out of jail. Or thinks he doesn’t want to. The Bail Project, a national nonprofit, confirmed that it tried to help Greathouse but did not post bail, in keeping with his request. Greathouse showed up on the Post-Dispatch radar from a records request for all the people held in the city and St. Louis County jail systems whose highest offense was a misdemeanor or ordinance violation. On April 1, he was one of 37 people who fit the criteria. This week, he was one of the few people on that list still behind bars. While Greathouse said in the interview that the Workhouse was a “pleasant” place to stay, he also said it would be “insane” to try to be held there. He said he wasn’t being informed about his case. As a former lawyer, he said, he knows his rights. He said he graduated at the top of his class at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Law School. The school confirmed that Greathouse graduated in 1987, but not at the top. He practiced at a Clayton law firm and also had an office in Chicago. Missouri court officials said he voluntarily surrendered his law license in

1996 after pleading guilty to felony stalking. He was disbarred that year in Illinois. Greathouse said he’s been homeless since 2004. In recent years, he’s been arrested for trespassing in Red Bud, Ill., Columbia, Mo., and other places. “It’s the same offense,” he said. “I don’t go hanging out at laundromats for no reason. I don’t go into parking garages for no reason.” He said he went to those places to stay warm in winter. The resulting charges often led to months of jail time until he was released for time served. In the Red Bud case, he said, he got caught staying in the park in 2015. He said he stayed in jail about three months, then another three months at the Chester Mental Health Center in Southern Illinois. He said he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and other mental illnesses there but quickly stopped taking medications. After being released for time served in March, 2016, he said, the center dropped him off in front of New Life Evangelistic Center, the former downtown homeless shelter on Locust Street. He said he didn’t go inside. Instead, he walked toward Forest Park to camp. By late 2018, it was getting cold outside and he raised alarms at St. Louis University. He was again charged with

misdemeanor trespassing, the case for which he’s currently being held at the Workhouse in lieu of $250 bail. His case is assigned to Associate Circuit Judge Madeline O. Connolly. On Thursday morning, the last entry on his docket sheet was a hearing on March 26. It was noted that another hearing was supposed to happen April 9, but clerks said the record didn’t indicate that it had. Later on Thursday, a hearing was scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday. A clerk said that would have happened regardless of any inquiry, because a report is generated every month for open cases such as this one without outcomes. Greathouse hasn’t been a squeaky wheel. He said he doesn’t even yell like a lot of the other people in jail. “I haven’t been in a big hurry to process this until it warms up,” he said. But perhaps he could now plead guilty for time served, since it’s not cold anymore. He said he grew up in the Fenton area and has a place in Valley Park he’d like to go. “There’s a bridge on one of my father’s properties that I can live under,” he said. “I have camping gear and all that.” Greathouse said God, his father, saves him from harm.

ST. LOUIS — As a veteran of the streets, Mark A. Greathouse drifts from place to place, often on the hunt for good spots to hang out and sleep. In November, he apparently was no longer welcome on the St. Louis University campus. The homeless man said he’d agreed to stay away from the baseball and soccer fields there. In his mind, though, that didn’t forbid him from ducking into the business school to ask about the curriculum. “I was trying to find out the courses I could take to complete my MBA,” said Greathouse, 59. He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing. But as he spoke during a lengthy interview Wednesday at the city’s Medium Security Institution, commonly called the Workhouse, he said he didn’t know on which prior offense he was being held. Nor his bond amount. “Father knows about all this. Don’t worry,” he said. According to court records, Greathouse was accused of walking the halls and harassing teachers at the university after signing earlier agreements not to return. After failing to appear in court, he was picked up on a warrant for his arrest and booked into the city jail system March 25. His

College leader investigated for social media posts BY BLYTHE BERNHARD

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

GODFREY — Lewis and Clark Community College is investigating “concerning” social media posts attributed to the chairman of the college’s board of trustees. Facebook posts from the profile of David Heyen of Dorchester, Ill., prompted the Missouri chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations to call on Heyen to resign. “Anyone who shares such anti-

Muslim, racist and anti-immigrant views has no business serving in a leadership position for any educational institution. Chairman Heyen should resign from his post,” said Faizan Syed, the council’s executive director, in a statement. “We urge Lewis and Clark Community College to thoroughly investigate this matter and ensure that the college remains a welcoming place for all of its students.” Heyen did not respond to a PostDispatch request for comment.

The college posted a statement Thursday, saying the Facebook posts were brought to the school’s attention May 1. “The college is looking into this issue just as we would review any alleged conduct of a student, employee, board member, visitor or contractor,” according to a statement. “The college has a long history of its commitment to providing an inclusive environment for all stakeholders of the college, including students, employees and

visitors. Lewis and Clark remains committed to modeling our core values of service, respect, responsibility, compassion and integrity. These comments and posts do not represent the culture of Lewis and Clark.” Heyen joined the college’s board of trustees in 2017 and was installed as chairman last month. According to his biography on the Lewis and Clark website, Heyen is from Dorchester and is a small business owner and live-

stock farmer. Heyen graduated from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville and has served in the U.S. Air Force. He also has a background in ministry and served as a volunteer chaplain for Alton Memorial Hospital. The board of trustees meets monthly, with its next meeting scheduled for Tuesday.

CONCERT REVIEW

NKOTB brings right stuff for mixtape-style Enterprise show BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Who’d have thought, in 2019, that New Kids on the Block could deliver a twist to the way we typically enjoy concerts? On the pop group’s current “Mixtape Tour” — which stopped Wednesday night at Enterprise Center with Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson — gone was the setup of the support acts performing as a buildup to the main attraction. Instead, New Kids on the Block took the stage first, with support acts dropping in all night to perform their hits. The format worked — like a mixtape. The anchor, New Kids on the Block, spent the longest chunks of time onstage, while the other acts filled in the blanks during costume change breaks. Salt-N-Pepa et al. weren’t able to give their most cohesive sets, but at least those sets were free of filler during the fast-moving show. To get things going, Donnie Wahlberg, Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood — decked out in white — were lowered from a platform onto the main stage, with a glowing floor resembling a cassette tape, for “The Way You Should Be Loved.” It was a win from the top with the catchy new song, better than a New Kids song has any business being in 2019, and a surprising choice to lead with. (It’s one of the new songs tacked onto the expanded reissue of the group’s 30th anniversary

They powered through classic and latter-day songs with decent vocals and even better moves, presumably performed to prerecorded music tracks; there was no sign of a band. New Kids on the Block dis-

persed into the crowd, each singer holding court in a different part of the floor, for “Block Party,” and made their way to the round B-stage at the other end of the arena, decorated like a record album, for “Games.” And then they were gone, as Tiffany popped up on the main stage to serviceably deliver her winning cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now.” Gibson followed, starting her medley of “Out of the Blue,”

“Shake Your Love” and “Electric Youth” on the arena floor. She was the weak link; there seemed to be a disconnect between her and the night’s fun. Back on the main stage, New Kids returned for a medley of ballads, including the band’s cover of “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time),” with “Valentine Girl” and “If You Go Away,” leading to full treatment of “Please Don’t Go Girl,” a highlight for McIntyre. Salt-N-Pepa, accompanied

naturally by male dancers, teased its “My Mic Sounds Nice” before performing “None of Your Business,” “Expression” and “Whatta Man.” The group remains a fun party act, even in smaller doses like what was served here. New Kids continued their affinity for mingling in the crowd while performing “Tonight.” St. Louis University’s dance/cheer team, pompoms in hand, lent its services for new song “Boys in the Band (Boy Band Anthem).” Rap group Naughty By Nature came through with “O.P.P.,” “Hip Hop Hooray” and “Feel My Flow” before Gibson returned, and found some redemption, with “Lost in Your Eyes,” performed with McIntyre. Salt-N-Pepa shook it up with “Shoop,” while Tiffany knocked out a pair of ballads in “Could’ve Been” and “All This Time.” The home stretch included New Kids on the Block’s “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)” with onhis-knees theatrics from Jordan Knight and “Step By Step,” transitioning into Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It” as the rap group re-emerged. A rendition of New Kids’ “Hangin’ Tough” incorporated “We Will Rock You.” The night of hits ended with the fitting “‘80s Baby,” a collaborative effort New Kids on the Block recorded with its support acts onstage together. There was no encore, but none was needed after this full ride. Kevin C. Johnson • 314-340-8191 Pop music critic @kevincjohnson on Twitter kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

Budget From A1

House Budget Chairman Cody Smith, R-Carthage, opposed the new language. He said colleges are only able to charge in-state tuition because of the state’s financial support. Because of this, he suggested taxpayers would in effect be condoning illegal behavior if the students in question were given in-state tuition. He said nothing would stop state schools from raising private money to help the students attend school. The affected students “live here,” Holsman said Tuesday. “And they’ve grown up here.” He said the students are leaving the state and are taking their tuition dollars with them. Holsman said colleges would be free to choose whether they charge undocumented students living here in-state tuition, similar to policies in place before 2015. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, as of January 2019, six states had policies restricting in-state tuition from students with unlawful status: Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Missouri and South Carolina. Missouri is currently seeking to lure a $1 billion investment from General Motors at its Wentzville plant. During heated debate on the House floor Tuesday, Democrats referenced a report by GM stating the company “stands with the Dreamers we employ.” So-called Dreamers — immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children — won protections from the Obama administration through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, but some Republicans have long sought to undo those protections. There were 3,524 DACA recipients living in Missouri as of 2017, according to an analysis of federal government data by Governing. Democrats wondered why GM would want to invest in a state that doesn’t accommodate so-called Dreamers. GM did not respond to an inquiry asking whether the company factors in a state’s immigration policies when deciding whether to invest in a state. The drama over immigrants overshadowed other budget actions, including the House’s support for another bill that funds K-12 education. That bill fully satisfies the state’s funding formula, boosting spending by more than $60 million over this year’s levels. The new fiscal year starts July 1. School transportation costs will also see a $5 million increase in state support. “Overall, with the money we have … HB 2 is a good bill,” said Rep. Kip Kendrick, D-Columbia.

Missouri budget highlights • $500,000 for the state public defenders office to address the agency’s case backlog. • $913,786 for two public defender juvenile units in St. Louis and Kansas City. • $1 million to re-dig a channel on the Missouri River between Bangert Island and mainland St. Charles. • $301 million in bonds to repair bridges. The budget also earmarks $50 million in general revenue for bridge repairs, and another $50 million for a costshare program between the state and localities for infrastructure projects. • $3.54 billion in general revenue for higher education, $60 million more than last year. The K-12 budget satisfies the state’s foundation funding formula. • $11 billion in Medicaid spending, approximately one-third of the state’s budget.

LAURIE SKRIVAN, LSKRIVAN@POST-DISPATCH.COM

Chairman of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership Karlos Ramirez and former CEO Sheila Sweeney attend a special meeting for the Partnership board in January at the Pierre Laclede Center in Clayton.

Plea From A1

Post-Dispatch investigation into low staff morale and high turnover, the agency’s procurement practices and the awarding of contracts to Stenger’s campaign donors.Several former employees told the newspaper then that Stenger essentially ran the office through Sweeney,and that Sweeney said Rallo was going to get contracts because he was a friend of Stenger’s campaign. That became clear in the federal government’s 44-page indictment of Stenger that was unsealed on April 29. Assistant U.S. Attorney Hal Goldsmith, who led the investigation, said in court that investigators had hours of recorded meetings in Stenger’s home and office, hours of recorded phone calls, and firsthand accounts of numerous

people in and out of county government about his pay-to-play schemes. In pleading guilty to the charges, Stenger admitted involvement in five “schemes” as part of his plea, four of which involved Rallo. The indictment of Stenger said the schemes went back to October 2014 when John Rallo was introduced to Stenger by friend Sorkis J. Webbe Jr., a former St. Louis alderman who was sentenced in 1986 for vote fraud, attempted extortion and harboring a fugitive.Rallo made his first $5,000 campaign donation to Stenger with the understanding that Stenger would help him get insurance contracts if he won the general election for county executive. When Stenger ran into opposition within his administration to securing an insurance contract for Rallo, he used the St. Louis County Port Authority, an economic de-

velopment agency funded by rent payments of about $5 million a year from the River City Casino in Lemay. On Feb. 5, 2018, the Post-Dispatch published its investigation of a Port Authority contract awarded to Rallo‘s Cardinal Creative Consulting firm. The $100,000 Port Authority contract was supposed to be about marketing the region in the aftermath of Ferguson unrest. But all the Partnership could point to was an op-ed from TV personality Montel Williams on an NBC website that mentioned Ferguson in the seventh paragraph and misspelled Stenger’s name. The Port Authority board then did not want to talk about how $30,000 got tacked onto Rallo’s contract, even though he had only bid $100,000. The FBI opened its investigation into that same contract on March

8, 2018, according to a search warrant in the Stenger case that was unsealed on Tuesday. According to the indictment handed up last week, the $30,000 was added to the 2016 contract awarded to John Rallo’s Cardinal Creative Consulting as a way to repay a local political operative who was “a close associate” of an area public official. Neither the operative nor the public official is named in the indictment, but sources active in Democratic politics have told the Post-Dispatch that the political operative, identified as “JC” in the indictment, is John Cross of Olivette, and the public official he is described as close to is U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-University City. Jeremy Kohler • 314-340-8337 @jeremykohler on Twitter jkohler@post-dispatch.com

Erby From A1

Partisanship has taken a backseat in county government as council members on both sides had been aligned against Stenger, and all three Republicans supported Page to take the county executive seat after Stenger’s resignation. Passage of every bill for the next three months will have to be bipartisan, because the council needs four votes to pass a bill. Erby, 73, of University City, was first elected to the council in 2004. She is taking a new position: director of diversity, equity and inclusion. Her salary will more than quintuple from her $20,000 council salary. She starts on Monday. The raise would significantly boost her pension, especially if she stays in the job for three years. “My new job will empower me to focus on issues that are vital to St. Louis County,” Erby said in a statement. “The fact that (Page) and I worked so well together on the Council during one of the County’s most challenging periods is bound to make this effort more effective.” Page said in a tweet: “Addressing racial disparities will be a priority for us, and (Erby) will continue to be a powerful teammate in that work.” The council on Tuesday said it was trying to hold a special election in August to fill Page’s 2nd District seat. A council source said the county would try to have Erby’s seat on the same ballot, but it was running into a May 25 deadline with the Board of Elections. Erby’s new job description was still being shaped, but in general it will be to make sure that all county residents have access to the same services and opportunities. Page offered her the position late last week. The two longtime council allies had been briefly at odds after Page outmaneuvered Erby to line up support on the council to elect him to replace Stenger.

ROBERT COHEN, RCOHEN@POST-DISPATCH.COM

St. Louis County Executive Sam Page talks with Hazel Erby as she takes the gavel to run the County Council meeting on April 30. The meeting marked Page’s first after being named county executive. Erby said Thursday she is resigning from the council to join Page’s administration. Erby said in the statement that she had buried the hatchet. “My husband reminded me that Hillary Clinton put aside her disagreements to serve successfully with President Barack Obama. I intend to do the same for County Executive Page.” Erby is stepping into an area of expertise: She was the force behind a landmark minority inclusion bill approved by the council in April 2018. The council voted 7-0 then to adopt legislation establishing standards for minority participation in St. Louis County’s contracts. Under the legislation,the county will require 24 percent minorityowned businesses and 9.5 percent women-owned businesses for construction, and 16 percent minority-owned businesses and 15 percent women-owned busi-

nesses for architecture and engineering projects. The legislation also applies a 5 percent discount to bids from eligible minority- or women-owned businesses. And it establishes management positions within the county to develop programs for growth of minority- and womenowned businesses, and a staff to oversee contract compliance. Erby spent years behind the scenes building consensus on the bill from contractors and activists and among council members. Erby’s new position pays $121,000. She was critical in January when Pat Dolan, Stenger’s only council ally who lost his August primary, was hired as a special projects coordinator in the parks department making $87,000. “Wow!” she tweeted. “A $67K per year pay increase! And … in the midst

of a hiring/pay freeze and county departments forced to lay off employees. It pays to have friends in high places.” But Councilman Ernie Trakas, R-6th District, said Thursday he didn’t think the situations were similar. “You are talking about a councilman who lost his bid for reelection, and got a cush job,” he said. “This is a different situation. She’s chosen to take an offer that she feels is important, and indeed it is.” “I don’t want Hazel to leave the council, but that’s for selfish reasons,” Trakas said. “We see eye to eye more often than not. We had chemistry that evolved over the 18 months on council, which made it uber-effective.”

don’t speak English, Hazelwood School District administrators say they need to hire five full-time teachers for the coming school year. Sixteen teachers currently provide English language instruction to 491 students who speak a combined 44 languages. That ratio falls short of state standards. The School Board took no vote on the teachers Tuesday night, but President Mark Behlmann asked how the number of languages affects teaching. Juan Cordova, assistant superintendent for elementary schools, HAZELWOOD — School district said some languages share certain seeks to hire five teachers: With a elements. “We can use the same growing number of students who strategies for all students if they

are all at Level 1,” a base level of learning. But as children progress, he said,“it becomes more difficult to do that.” Administrators also recommended expanding Hazelwood’s gifted program. Most of the changes would occur at the elementary level, including adding three gifted-certified teachers. They want to reinstate a program for students in first through third grade who don’t quite meet gifted standards but could become eligible with increased support and preparation for screenings. At the middle schools, a creative and critical thinking program would be offered to a wider range

of students to help prepare them for rigorous coursework and for college and career-readiness. One additional gifted teacher would be hired for the next school year, and a second teacher the following year. Hazelwood’s three high schools share one gifted education teacher for the 304 students. The district proposes adding two full-time teachers so that each school has a specialist. The district also wants to train general education teachers to meet the needs of gifted and highachieving students. The committee working on the gifted program plans to present its recommendations for board approval soon.

DIGEST FESTUS — Interim wastewater treatment plant to close: Relief from foul odors should be on the way with the long-awaited closing of the interim West Wastewater Treatment Facility near West City Park. The culprit, especially in warm weather, is the sewer lagoon at 2300 Sunshine Drive. In 2015 the state issued a warning that the lagoon needed improvements to bring it up to new federal standards. The permit issued to the city in 2014 would have to be renewed this year. Instead, the city plans to close the treatment facility and construct a lift station with a force main to transfer sewage to the treatment

plant shared with Crystal City. The only bid received for the project was from Above and Below Contracting of Festus for $3,594,850. However, the firm did identify at least $200,000 in project savings that would bring the cost closer to the initial estimate of $3.1 million, said Greg Camp, city administrator. The work is expected to be completed in about a year. The City Council approved the contract with Above and Below Contracting.

Documents detail charges against Great Circle CEO Man’s attorney says allegations are false BY NASSIM BENCHAABANE

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WEBSTER GROVES — One youth’s back was broken when the youth jumped out a second-story window; another was stabbed in the liver; a fight left a third youth with a broken nose, concussion and multiple contusions. They are among several students seriously hurt at a child welfare facility and alternative school in Webster Groves who “failed to receive timely medical attention” because of a policy put in place by the CEO, according to court documents obtained Thursday. Vincent Damian Hillyer, CEO of

Great Circle, was charged Tuesday with six counts of endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, all felonies, in connection with the incidents. He was also charged with assault and attempting to endanger the welfare of a child after investigators obtained a video allegedly showing him “choking a child seated on a couch.” Hillyer was also accused of directing staff to falsify reports about the child. Joel Schwartz, an attorney representing Hillyer in both cases, denied each allegation against Hillyer. “He’s done nothing wrong and we will fight these allegations vigorously,” Schwartz said. Court documents allege six incidents in which students were

seriously hurt and “failed to receive timely emergency medical attention due to Hillyer’s actions.” I n ve s t i ga to rs Hillyer uncovered the incidents after a fight between students at the Webster Groves facility left a student with a broken nose, concussion and multiple contusions, court documents say. The Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division suspended a contract with Great Circle after the fight. Court documents do not identify the student but identify five others hurt in other incidents, including a student with multiple lacerations after an apparent

suicide attempt, a student with a broken clavicle and a student displaying symptoms of an acute anxiety attack. Each student “failed to receive timely emergency medical attention” because of Hillyer’s “oral and written policy” to “not call emergency medical services for student related incidents and further discouraged contacting 911 through employee disciplinary actions,” Webster Groves police Officer Jillian McCoy wrote in a probable cause statement. “We have trained nurses on staff, and staff are trained to call 911 whenever they believe a client is in need of emergency medical attention,” Great Circle said. “All staff members are expected to comply with policies and procedures in all

of their interactions with clients.” Schwartz said investigators misinterpreted Hillyer’s policy and that the CEO was not present when the students were hurt. “To then turn around and blame the CEO is unwarranted,” Schwartz said. Schwartz also pushed back against a video aired Tuesday on KMOV (Channel 4) that appeared to show the April 17 incident in which Hillyer was accused of choking a child. “The child was getting out of control, and the child was restrained appropriately and not choked,” Schwartz said.

LAW AND ORDER ST. LOUIS — Police want ATVs off the streets: Officers in St. Louis plan to begin a crackdown on ATV riders on city streets. The department said it plans to begin immediately enforcing a state law that prohibits all-terrain vehicles on “highways,” saying it interprets that as applying to “the entire width between property lines of every way ... when any part thereof is open to the use of the public, as a matter of right, for purposes of vehicular traffic.” The crackdown comes after news reports of packs of ATV riders on St. Louis streets endangering people and violating other traffic laws. “The police department has been made aware of large groups of ATV riders creating disturbances throughout the city,” St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden said in a statement. “We are going to enforce the mentioned state statute, which prohibits the operation of ATVs in places open to the public for the purposes of vehicular traf-

fic within the State. This includes our City streets.” Hayden said a violation would be a Class C misdemeanor, and violators would be subject to arrest and towing of their ATVs. ST. LOUIS COUNTY — Credit union offers reward after robbery: A credit union is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who robbed a South County branch last week. The man robbed the Electro Savings Credit Union on Tesson Ferry Road near Interstate 270 about 6 p.m. on May 2. He entered the credit union and threatened employees with a handgun, demanding money. He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and then fled. The man is described as white, possibly in his late 40s, and 6 feet tall with a thin build and a mustache. Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous. Police said the man may not be from the St. Louis area.

Authorities asked anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers online or at 1-866-371-8477.

officer played a key role in finding the weapon, Schmidt said. She alerted administrators about 7 a.m. after she got reports that a student might be bringing a weapon to school. School starts at 7:30 a.m. Mary LaPak, a spokeswoman with the Wentzville School District, said administrators and law enforcement officers found the student before he entered the school building, at 405 Campus Drive. They confiscated the unloaded weapon and turned it and the boy over to police. A statement released by the district read, in part: “There was no interruption to the instructional day, and we want to stress that we do NOT believe there was any intent to harm anyone at the school.” The district wouldn’t identify the student or release the child’s age. The district also refused to say how the child was being disciplined, citing student privacy laws.

WENTZVILLE — Student brings unloaded gun to school: A male student at Wentzville Middle School brought an unloaded gun onto school property Thursday morning but was stopped by a school resource officer before he got inside. Authorities seized the weapon and no one was hurt. Wentzville officer Jacob Schmidt said the student was taken into the custody of St. Charles County juvenile authorities. It wasn’t immediately clear to police why the boy brought the gun to school. “There was no magazine and there was no ammo and it was unloaded,” Schmidt said. “Through our investigation at this point, (police believe) there was no intent or plan to cause harm by the student.” “We’re still digging,” Schmidt added. The school’s resource FRANKLIN COUNTY — Drowning victim is a teenager: A teenager who had been riding a personal watercraft in a waterfilled quarry pit drowned Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the victim as Scotty E. Copeland, 18, of Catawissa. Copeland was riding a personal watercraft in a quarry pit in the Catawissa

Conservation Area near the Meramec River about 5 p.m. Wednesday. He was thrown from the watercraft, became fatigued and went under, the patrol said. Divers recovered his body before 7 p.m. ST. LOUIS — Man shot Wednesday dies: A man shot in the torso Wednesday night has died, police say. The unidentified man was shot about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 3900 block of Lexington Avenue, just south of Fairground Park. Police found him on the ground. He had been shot multiple times. Police don’t have an age or name for the dead man. That shooting was among several in a 14-hour period Wednesday and Thursday. ST. LOUIS COUNTY — Affton resident charged with assault on former girlfriend: An Affton man was charged Wednesday with hog-tying and raping an ex-girlfriend, authorities say. Rickey T. Williams, 61, of the 9000 block of Lemona Drive in unincorporated St. Louis County, was charged in St. Louis County Circuit Court with first-degree rape or attempted rape, two counts of sodomy or attempted sodomy, domestic assault and kidnapping. Charges say that on Tuesday and Wednesday, Williams attacked an exgirlfriend of his, beat her face and body, dragged her by her hair, hog-tied her

wrists and ankles with duct tape and raped her. Williams was jailed in lieu of a $500,000 bail. ST. LOUIS — Man sentenced in fentanyl case: A St. Louis man who was storing 740 grams of fentanyl in a south St. Louis residence has been sentenced to 12 years and six months in prison by Judge Ronnie L. White in U.S. District Court. Larry Weeden Jr., 39, of St. Louis pleaded guilty in February to possessing several firearms as a convicted felon and possession with intent to distribute more than 400 grams of fentanyl. A state-level search warrant was executed in July 2018 on a residence in the 3700 block of Wisconsin Avenue. Investigators found six loaded semi-automatic pistols, including a Glock 23 .40-caliber handgun with an extended magazine and a .45-caliber handgun that investigators determined had been stolen. Law enforcement also seized about 740 grams of fentanyl in total, a drug 50 times as potent as morphine. The drug was stored in a large compressed brick and several baggies, as well as about 130 grams of methamphetamine in powder and pill form. Investigators also found drug paraphernalia and about $46,000. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation handled the case.

Three injured in shooting rampage at St. Louis home BY CHRISTINE BYERS

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS — A man upset after his cousin accused him of stealing $600 threatened to kill her Wednesday night, so she called police. He waited until they left to make his move, Roberson police say. Rodney Roberson, 23, returned to his cousin’s home in the 4800 block of Kossuth Avenue just before 9:30 p.m. and put a rifle to a man’s head, threatening to kill him, police said. He then forced his way into his cousin’s apartment, according to court documents. She hid in her mother’s bedroom, along with her mother’s boyfriend. Roberson kicked in the door and shot her mother’s boyfriend multiple times, according to the documents. He was in critical and unstable condition Thursday at a hospital. Roberson then fired into another bedroom, missing a 16-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, according to court documents Roberson went outside and fired into another apartment in the building, charges say.

White supremacist gang member pleads guilty to brutal tattoo-burning assault BY ERIN HEFFERNAN

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON COUNTY — A Wentzville man pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday, admitting that as a member of a white supremacist gang he helped brutally assault a man in 2013 by using a burning log to remove a gang tattoo. Daniel B. Jerome, 31, pleaded guilty to as- Jerome sault resulting in serious bodily injury in the aid of racketeering Thursday as part of a plea agreement laying out a sentence of five years in prison. He is set to be officially sentenced Aug. 7. In the agreement, Jerome said he assaulted a fellow member of a white supremacist gang, the Aryan Circle, at a park in Fenton on Nov. 9, 2013. Jerome said he met up with a group of other Aryan Circle members that day at George Winter Park and they set up a bonfire near the Meramec River, according to the plea. The group drank beer around the fire for about an hour and a half before one of the members directed Jerome and another man to pick up one of the gang’s members who he believed had switched

to another faction within Aryan Circle. According to Jerome’s plea agreement: The gang member and his girlfriend arrived thinking they would hang out, drink and enjoy a picnic, but after about 20 minutes, four gang members including Jerome confronted him. One of them struck the man in the back of the head with a big log. The men then dragged him to the river’s edge and beat him with rocks and sticks along with their feet. One of the men then grabbed a burning log from the fire and applied it to the man’s rib cage in an effort to burn off his gang tattoos. The gang members then tossed the victim into the river and held him under water. He was eventually released and left on the riverbank where he fell unconscious. The beaten man had to undergo facial reconstruction surgery as well as other medical procedures, and has scars and disfigurement that are likely to be permanent, according to the plea. Jerome was one of four men indicted last October in connection to the attack. Thomas B. Wilson, of Villa Ridge; Thomas Tisher, of St. Louis; and Dustin M. Haney, of Hermann, were also indicted on one felony

count of aggravated assault in aid of racketeering and a gun charge. Charges are still pending for the three others named in the indictment. Three of the men, including Jerome, have prior felony convictions. After receiving drug treatment, Jerome was sentenced to five years of probation for a 2015 methamphetamine possession charge in St. Charles County Circuit Court. In 2015, Wilson was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 6½ years in prison on a carjacking charge. The sentence was to run at the same time as a seven-year sentence in Madison County Circuit Court for home invasion with a firearm and for violating his federal supervised release on a 2009 case involving a methamphetamine manufacturing conspiracy. Illinois prison records show Wilson has a tattoo of a skull and the word “white” on his left arm and a skull and “pride” on his right arm. Tisher was sentenced to five years in prison in 2015 after being convicted by a St. Louis jury of trafficking in meth. Court records show Wilson was in the car when Tisher and others were stopped by police. Jerome’s plea agreement lays out the history

and practices of the Aryan Circle. The gang was born in the Texas prison system in the mid-1980s and has now spread in and out of state and federal prisons with concentrations in Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, the agreement says. The gang enforces its rules against cooperating with law enforcement and promotes discipline through murder, assault, robbery and threats, officials said. The case continues to be investigated by federal and local law enforcement in Missouri and Texas, authorities said.

iber rifle rounds pierced the walls and struck two people who were hiding in a closet after hearing the earlier shots. One was hit in the left shoulder and the other was grazed in the elbow, according to the documents. Roberson left and drove to Illinois, where he “committed other violent crimes,” before he was “pursued back to Missouri,” according to the documents. Authorities did not provide other details, but Roberson apparently escaped. Sometime early Thursday, a St. Louis police officer spotted Roberson walking along a street and ordered him to stop. He ran, but the officer arrested him. Roberson, of the 4500 block of Alice Avenue, was charged with 11 counts including assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, burglary, endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest. Judge Thomas McCarthy ordered Roberson held without bail. Joel Currier of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report. Rachel Rice • 314-340-8344 @RachelDRice on Twitter rrice@post-dispatch.com

Pope From A1

cover-up scandal that has devastated the credibility of the Catholic hierarchy and his own papacy. And it provides a new legal framework for U.S. bishops as they prepare to adopt accountability measures next month to respond to the scandal there. “People must know that bishops are at the service of the people,” said Archbishop Charles Scicluna, the Vatican’s longtime sex crimes prosecutor. “They are not above the law, and if they do wrong, they must be reported.” The decree requires the world’s 415,000 Catholic priests and 660,000 nuns to tell church authorities when they learn or have “well-founded motives to believe” a cleric or sister has engaged in sexual abuse of a minor, sexual misconduct with an adult, possession of child pornography — or that a superior has covered up any of those crimes. It doesn’t require them to report to police, however. The Vatican has long argued that different legal systems make a universal reporting law impossible, and that imposing one could endanger the church in places where Catholics are a persecuted minority. But the procedures do for the first time put into universal law that victims cannot be silenced, that clergy must obey civil reporting requirements where they live, and that their obligation to report to the church in no way interferes with that. The global victims group Ending Clergy Abuse, or ECA, said the Vatican shouldn’t hide behind the argument that mandatory reporting to police is a problem in some countries. “The church should establish the law for reporting and justify the exception,” said ECA’s Peter Iseley. “Instead, they are using the exception as a pretext for not reporting sexual abuse to civil authorities and to keep abuse secret.” If implemented fully,though,the Vatican could well see an avalanche of abuse and cover-up reports. The

Pope Francis speaks during a meeting church leaders at the Vatican Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome on Thursday. The pope on Thursday mandated the reporting of sex abuse to church hierarchy. decree can be applied retroactively, meaning priests and nuns are now required to report even old cases of sexual wrongdoing and cover-ups — and enjoy whistleblower protections for doing so. Previously such reporting was left to the conscience of individual priests and nuns. Canon lawyer Kurt Martens called the new law “revolutionary” by making sex abuse of minors and adults, as well as official cover-ups, subject to mandatory reporting. “We owe gratitude to Pope Francis for this universal law of the Church, ensuring that a victim who wishes to tell his or her story cannot be silenced,” Martens tweeted. Anne Barrett Doyle of BishopAccountability praised some of the provisions but said they weren’t enough, primarily because there were no sanctions envisaged for violations, and because the process remained entirely internal. “Bishops watching bishops does not work,” she said. While there are no punitive

measures foreseen for noncompliance, bishops and religious superiors could be accused of cover-up or negligence if they fail to implement the provisions or retaliate against priests and nuns who make reports against them. The law defines the crimes that must be reported as: performing sexual acts with a minor or vulnerable person; forcing an adult “by violence or threat or through abuse of authority, to perform or submit to sexual acts”; and the production, possession or distribution of child pornography. Cover-up is defined as “actions or omissions intended to interfere with or avoid” civil or canonical investigations. Cardinal Marc Ouellet, head of the Vatican’s bishops’ office, said the inclusion of sex crimes involving adults was a clear reference to cases of sexual abuse of nuns and seminarians by their superiors — a scandal that has exploded recently following reports, including by The Associated Press and the Vatican’s own women’s magazine, of sisters being sexually assaulted by priests.

The pope mandated that victims reporting abuse must be welcomed, listened to and supported by the hierarchy, as well as offered spiritual, medical and psychological assistance. The law says victims can’t be forced to keep quiet, even though the investigation itself is still conducted under pontifical secret. And in a novelty, the law requires that if victims request it, they must be told of the outcome of the investigation — again a response to complaints that victims are kept in the dark about how their claims were handled. Victims and their advocates have long complained that bishops and religious superiors have escaped justice for having engaged in sexual misconduct themselves, or failed to protect their flocks from predator priests. Bishops and religious superiors are accountable only to the pope, and only a handful have ever been sanctioned or removed for sex abuse or coverup, and usually only after particularly egregious misbehavior became public.

the 2016 election. He called for an end to “this ‘Groundhog Day’ spectacle, stop endlessly re-litigating a 2 ½-year-old election result, and move forward for the American people.” McConnell said of Burr’s investigation only that the “upcoming report from the Select Committee on Intelligence” would help the Senate determine what it needs to do for election security. The Associated Press reported that the intelligence committee is interested in discussing Trump Jr.’s 2017 testimony before the committee, which has been called into question by testimony by Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer. The questions could be about Trump Jr.’s involvement in the Trump Tower project in Moscow, as well as a June 2016 meeting with Russians at Trump Tower. Rep. Mark Meadows, RN.C., called the subpoena “beyond inappropriate.” Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., did not mention his colleague by name, but expressed his displeasure with extending the investigation Thursday in a tweet. He noted Trump Jr. testified for 27 hours before Congress and said the Mueller report cleared him.

Last summer, the scandal over ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick epitomized the trend: McCarrick rose to the heights of the Catholic hierarchy even though he had credible allegations of sexual misconduct with adults against him that the Vatican had received. Francis defrocked McCarrick this year after a U.S. church investigation determined he sexually abused minors as well as adult seminarians. The new procedures call for any claim of sexual misconduct or cover-up against a bishop, religious superior or Eastern Rite patriarch to be reported to the Holy See and the metropolitan bishop, who is a regular diocesan bishop also responsible for a broader geographic area than his dioceses alone. Unless the metropolitan bishop finds the claim “manifestly unfounded,” he must immediately ask permission from the Vatican to open a preliminary investigation and must hear back from Rome within 30 days — a remarkably fast turnaround for the lethargic Holy See. The metropolitan bishop then has an initial 90 days to conduct the investigation, though extensions are possible. The law makes clear he can use lay experts to help, a key provision that is already used in many dioceses. And it recommends that a special fund be set up to pay for the investigations, particularly in poorer parts of the world. Once the investigation is over, the metropolitan sends the results to the Vatican for a decision on how to proceed. The procedures published Thursday are likely to form a key legal framework for U.S. bishops when they meet in Baltimore June 11-13 to adopt new accountability procedures, though it will certainly force them to scrap their existing proposals and make them conform to the new law. The law takes effect June 1 for an initial three years. Dioceses must establish the reporting system and confirm it is in place to the local Vatican embassy by June 1, 2020.

“Case closed! … Let’s move on and get to work on the real issues facing America,” said Tillis, who is facing a Republican challenger in his 2020 reelection bid. Burr, 63, said during his 2016 reelection campaign that he is not running again in 2022. He has worked to keep his committee’s investigation free from the drama that surrounded the House’s investigation and even outside of the partisan fight that emerged around the Mueller report. And that approach has largely worked. In an interview with CBS in February, one of the few times he’s spoken at length about the investigation, Burr said the committee had not turned up evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. “We’ll be judged at the end of this on the product that we produce,” Burr told CBS. “We’ll also be judged on the process that we chose. … None of us ever anticipated that this would be two years.” Sen. Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican and a member of the intelligence committee, backed Burr. He said Trump Jr. should comply with the subpoena and appear before the committee. “Just trying to be sure everybody is asked all the

questions they need to be asked before we do a final report,” Blunt said, adding that he expects the committee to issue most of its report before July 4 and the final “most interesting” part before the end of August. Blunt, a member of McConnell’s leadership team, said he does not expect the committee to reach different conclusions than Mueller did, but he said the committee has “more specifics about the kinds of things the Russians were doing and continue to do.” He said Burr’s job as chairman is “a challenging assignment every day. It just happens that today the challenge is a little more public.” The drama among Senate Republicans is playing out amid the House’s fight with the Justice Department in pursuit of an unredacted version of Mueller’s report. The standoff extends to Trump’s unwillingness to engage with dozens of Capitol Hill probes of his tax returns, potential business conflicts and the running of the administration — from security clearances for his family to actions he’s taken on his own on immigration. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, has called the fight with Trump a “constitutional crisis.”

Anglo-Saxon burial site likened to King Tut’s tomb BY JAMES BROOKS

Associated Press

SOUTHEND-ON-SEA, England — An underground chamber discovered accidentally by road workers appears to be the site of the earliest Christian royal burial ever found in Britain, archaeologists say, calling it the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The chamber, uncovered between a road and a railway line in the southeastern English village of Prittlewell in 2003, turned out to be a 1,400-year-old tomb. New details were published Thursday about the finding, which archaeologists say is the most important Anglo-Saxon burial discovery in more than 70

years. Treasures unearthed at the site include a golden belt buckle, the remnants of a harp-like instrument known as a lyre, gleaming glassware and an elaborate water vessel from the eastern Mediterranean, perhaps Syria. Researchers say the luxury items indicate the chamber’s occupant was a man of high standing, possibly a prince. Two small gold-foil crosses found at the head of the coffin suggest a Christian burial. “There are luxury imports that have come from as far away as Syria. Some of the raw materials might have even come as far away as Sri Lanka and the Indian subcontinent,” said Liz Bar-

ham, a senior conservator at Museum of London Archaeology who worked on the dig. “This is a really rich burial. It’s a statement, it’s a theatrical statement being made about the family, about this person.” Sophie Jackson, director of research and engagement at Museum of London Archaeology, said the discovery is “our equivalent

of Tutankhamun’s tomb.” While the identity of its occupant is unknown, locals have nicknamed him the “Prittlewell Prince.” Fragments of tooth enamel — the only human remains uncovered — revealed he was over 6 years old, and the size of the coffin suggests he was about 5 foot 8 inches tall. Jackson said the “best guess” is that it was Seaxa,

brother of King Saebert, the first Anglo-Saxon king to convert to Christianity. She said the burial came at a time when Christianity was vying in Britain with older pagan beliefs. “They would have been just on the transition between having pagan burials with all your gear, but also having these crosses,” she said.

descendants of Germanic tribes who gradually invaded England by sea starting in the fifth century, after the collapse of the Roman Empire. They came to rule the country until the Norman conquest in 1066. Dozens of artifacts will go on display Saturday at Southend Central Museum, near the burial site and about 40 miles east of London.

Pay-to-play pot? Missouri’s new marijuana industry is already seeding state politics with cash.

M

issouri’s nascent medical marijuana industry is getting right down to business, and we don’t mean growing plants. Industry players have already donated more than $15,000 to a political action committee controlled by Gov. Mike Parson, whose administration will decide who gets growing licenses and what regulations they’ll face. There’s no law against giving money to politicians as they’re making decisions that directly affect the donor’s business — but, as the Steve Stenger saga in St. Louis County has so freshly reminded us, there should be. The Parson donations also drive home how problematic it is that the state is trying to hide the identities of marijuana license applicants. Missourians in November voted to legalize medical marijuana. With sales expected to top $100 million by 2025, competition is fierce to get licensed by the state for a piece of that action. It was within that context that the owner of the newly formed medical marijuana company Artemis Therapeutics, and a Perryville greenhouse that Artemis plans to work with, gave $15,000 Parson’s Uniting Missouri PAC. As the Post-Dispatch’s Kurt Erickson reported this week, it came in the form of three $5,000 donations, all on March 4. There’s no proof the donors or Parson have done anything wrong. Of course, the same could have been said, for years, of Stenger, the former St. Louis County executive whose donors were continually getting official favors while giving him money. It took federal investigators to prove those circumstances weren’t just suspicious, but criminal. Even absent a crime, the act of giving money to politicians who can influence who gets those marijuana licenses and what regulations will apply to them creates an appearance of such impropriety that it diminishes public trust in government. One solution would be a ban on any political donations from people seeking or receiving marijuana licensing. Or, Parson and other officials could simply declare publicly that they won’t accept such donations. After all, Parson pledged in November that

An employee holds a mason jar of marijuana at the Far West Holistic Center dispensary in Detroit. he would uphold the “highest ethical standards.” Instead, they’re just making those donations difficult to identify. The Post-Dispatch is suing the state to force release of the identities of marijuana license applicants, because the state has taken the bizarre stance that protecting those applicants’ proprietary information means even their identities can be hidden from the public. The fact that Parson’s PAC is taking money from prospective marijuana licensees wouldn’t have come to light at all if not for Erickson’s investigative reporting, which began with a tip. Who knows how many other potential licensees are loading up Missouri’s leaders with cash, hoping to steer state policy to their benefit instead of the public’s? By accepting such conflicted donations — and then trying to prevent the public from even knowing about them — Parson’s administration is casting a shadow of suspicion over this already-controversial new industry. There’s still time to set a better course.

Where there’s smoke ... A tobacco industry bill to raise the legal smoking age smells suspicious.

A

t first whiff, a proposal to raise the legal smoking age to 21 nationally sounds like a good one for getting young people out of the tobacco market. So why are the tobacco industry and its most powerful friend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, so enthusiastically behind it? Health advocates fear it’s because the idea is being used to short-circuit better proposals to stem underage smoking and vaping, like sales-tax increases and flavored-vapor bans. Based on experiences with similar legislation at the state level, some health advocates are labeling the bill a Trojan horse that could ultimately serve the tobacco and vaping industries’ agendas without having any real impact on underage smoking. Those who genuinely seek to address the real problem of teen smoking and vaping should hold out for a broader package that includes detailed enforcement mechanisms for the legal age increase, among other elements. One good idea shouldn’t be allowed to block better ones. McConnell, representing the tobacco state of Kentucky, announced plans in April to introduce major legislation raising the national minimum age for all tobacco products from 18 to 21 to address what he called “an epidemic of nicotine consumption either through cigarettes or through vaping” among young people. He called the measure a “top priority.” The tobacco industry is strongly on board. But it isn’t overly cynical or paranoid to suggest, as health advocates are now doing, that this

isn’t the sea change it might appear for a nicotine-addiction industry that historically has targeted underage consumers. A clear pattern is evident in states that have already passed laws raising the minimum tobacco purchasing age to 21: The industry gets behind the measure, making sure it gets passed with minimal enforcement mechanisms for that higher age. The result is that it has no real impact on kids buying tobacco. Then the industry stands firm against more effective measures — like tax hikes and flavored-vapor bans — on the argument that they’ve already addressed the issue. Is it unfair to suggest that McConnell, who has long demonstrated his dedication to both the tobacco industry and Machiavellian politics, is capable of such disingenuous maneuvering? Politico tried to find out by asking his office, after the new legislation was widely announced, whether McConnell would also be open to a flavored-vapor ban. Suddenly, his office wasn’t answering questions. Rules against underage purchases — particularly rules that, as in some states, aren’t strongly enforced — won’t cut youth tobacco use nearly as effectively as pricing products out of range of young pockets, and cutting off the wide array of flavors that has made vaping so popular among kids. If McConnell and his tobacco-industry patrons are serious about addressing the problem, they should make those ideas part of the mix. Otherwise, this hollow legislation should be seen for what it is.

Regarding “Better Together pulls St. Louis city-county merger proposal” (May 7): Better Together, a self-appointed, Rex Sinquefield-funded, private organization, apparently still believes it has the political authority and legitimacy to decide what’s best for St. Louis City and County. They’re not stopping — just taking a step back. I would agree, as Lyda Krewson said in the article, that withdrawing the petition does not need to be the end. If Better Together is truly concerned for the future of St. Louis, they will back off and let the Board of Freeholders process do its work. The Freeholders process is clearly outlined in the Missouri Constitution. We do not need a new process run by Better Together. The lack of a local vote is far from the only problem in the Better Together proposal. It’s inherently unethical, as PostDispatch columnist Tony Messenger has clearly documented. The form of governance is overly centralized and severely dilutes African American input. The tax structure is yet another Sinquefield initiative, like his support for former Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback. Even the data they say they spent years collecting is questionable. These issues, and many more, have created a legitimate lack of trust that negates any future coordinating role for Better Together. Democracy is winning on this one. The people of St. Louis have clearly refused to be bought or manipulated. Opposition to Better Together has brought people together from all parts of the city and county and from all parts of the political spectrum. People all over Missouri would seem to agree, given the progress of HJR 54 in the state legislature. It’s up to us to decide — not them. The Board of Freeholders process is the path to a brighter future. Mary Neal • University City

Merger solution: readmit the City into the County It appears that the proposed St. Louis city-county merger is not the approach desired by a lot of entities. Maybe we should make one change that would put all municipalities on the same level. That could be done by readmitting St. Louis City to the county as a municipality within the county, just like all the others. Then proceed with any proposed government change affecting all municipalities equally. Steven Siegerist • St. Louis

Shooting belittles respect for human life and dignity Regarding “8th grade football phenom recently featured in Sports Illustrated is shot to death in Venice” (May 7): The shooting death of a 14-year-old star athlete, Jaylon McKenzie, in the Metro East last week should be a clarion call to the area’s black community: St. Louis, we have a problem. Eighth grade graduation should be a time of joy and celebration as young people reach adolescence and prepare for new challenges. It is inconceivable that a child would lose his life to gun violence at such a young age. Is this what the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. died for? Was he jailed in Birmingham and stoned, stabbed and shot to death so that young people could bring deadly weapons to celebrations? So much has changed since my youth. We appreciated accomplishments. We celebrated success. We put our trifling differences aside and aimed high. We were young and loved life. Jaylon wanted some day to play in the National Football League and, by most accounts, would

have made it. He was already on the radar of major colleges. Instead, he was cut down at another school’s post-prom party. It’s so sad. Yes, it might take a village to raise our young people but in the end, self-dignity and respect for human life should be paramount to us all. Kevin Boone • St. Louis

Charlie Dooley (left) and Steve Stenger talk before the beginning of a League of Women Voters candidate forum in 2014.

Paper wrong criticizing Dooley, endorsing Stenger Although it was a sad day for St. Louis County when former County Executive Steve Stenger pleaded guilty to corruption in office, it is heartening to see how capably our new County Executive Sam Page has taken the reins. His collaborative messaging about moving forward after a difficult time bodes well for his efforts to helm a more productive government. On a personal note, I was pleased to see Page state publicly that former county executive Charlie Dooley had been “unfairly maligned,” and that we have now seen “the difference between accusations and reality.” I was also pleased to see that Stenger’s persistent efforts to award an insurance contract to his campaign donor were thwarted by the refusal of Director of Administration Pamela Reitz to play along with his plan. Although the Post-Dispatch failed to acknowledge it, the fact is that Reitz was a “holdover” director who was originally appointed to her position by Dooley. Her display of integrity came as no surprise to me but would undoubtedly have been educational for Post-Dispatch readers who were bombarded for years with unfair criticism and innuendo concerning Dooley’s administration. It would be nice to see an acknowledgement to Dooley from the PostDispatch that it erred in its assessment of him, but that seems unlikely from a newspaper which recently justified, rather than apologize, for its 2018 endorsement of Steve Stenger. Admitting its mistakes does not seem to be the Post-Dispatch’s forte. Patricia Redington • Clayton Former St. Louis County Counselor

It would seem hockey has a lot in common with life I was fortunate enough to see the Blues win May 7 at the Enterprise Center with my wife. I am so happy to have the ticket stubs to keep as a memento I can pass down ... oops, I can’t, because the ticket is on my smartphone. Anyway, the reason I love ice hockey is that it’s so much like life. You better pay attention, because in the blink of an eye something can happen, good or bad. Sometimes it seems your are dominating the game, but the score does not show it. Some will be satisfied with their effort and have no issue with the outcome; after all, they gave a good effort. Others will not accept the way the game is going and keep digging and find a gear they never had to use before. Congratulations, St. Louis Blues, you are halfway there. Chuck Gregory • O’Fallon, Mo.

Share your story so others will have a choice Proposed legislation in Missouri would ban abortion after six weeks. BY JENNIFER BOX

My name is Jennifer Box. My husband and I have been married for 6½ years, and we have two sons, ages 2 and 4. I want to tell you about our daughter, Libby Rose Box. This little girl broke our hearts wide open. Just over a year ago, I was 13 weeks pregnant with Libby when I got the call with our early genetic testing results. The news was not good: She was high risk for Trisomy 18. This began the process of multiple tests, ultrasounds with the high-risk OB/GYN department and meetings with genetic counselors. I spent hours each night wide awake in a panic going through different scenarios. If Libby was not stillborn, she would likely die within minutes or hours of birth. How would I explain that to our sons who would be only 3 and 1 years old? In the unlikely event that she did live past her first day, she would be born into a life of endless medical and surgical intervention — feeding tubes,

ventilators and open-heart surgery. Her short life would have always been one of agony. As a parent, you have to make hard choices on behalf of your children. As their parent, you know what is best for them. This is what my greatest act of love as her mother could be: to end the pregnancy, grant her peace and spare her tiny, broken body a life of pain. To suffer myself, instead. I’m thrilled to be pregnant again. Recently, my husband and I went for our 20-week anatomy scan. At the end of the scan we were told everything looks good, but they weren’t able to get two views of the heart, so I would follow up with another ultrasound at 24 weeks. When we got to the car I sobbed, “At 24 weeks it will be illegal in Missouri to have an abortion. I don’t want to fly to Colorado to end this pregnancy if something goes wrong.” I only know this because last year I learned firsthand how difficult Missouri

politicians have made it for a person to get a safe, legal abortion. I tell you these personal details because politicians are now trying to make it virtually impossible to access abortion in Missouri. Currently there are two bills in the Missouri Senate that would ban abortion at six weeks. These bills are sponsored by legislators from Kirkwood, O’Fallon and Lake Saint Louis. At six weeks, many women do not even know they are pregnant. And most OB/GYNs will not even schedule the first prenatal visit until eight weeks. Our state would deny a woman the most basic tenant of health care: to meet with her doctor, a person she trusts, to discuss a major medical event — a pregnancy. What’s more, neither of the bills have exceptions for fetal anomalies. Horrifically, neither bill has an exception in the case of rape or incest. That means victims of violent crime — a crime against their body and their consent — would have no recourse in Missouri to end a pregnancy resulting from rape. They would be forced to carry to

term against their will — as if their womb was more important than their wellbeing. The debate around abortion is charged. Trust me, I have learned that while sharing our most painful and heartbreaking family story with strangers in Jefferson City. But Missourians who have had an abortion, for any reason, should start telling their stories now. One in four women will have an abortion in her lifetime. That means we all have a friend, loved one, or coworker who has decided that ending a pregnancy was the best choice for her. These bans would effectively make every patient seeking abortion care have the same horrible moment I had in the car with my husband: realizing there is no time left to make your decision in your home state. In the middle of your crisis — be it an unintended pregnancy, a fetal anomaly, or as a victim of a violent crime — you must flee your home state and the health care providers you know and trust. Jennifer Box is the vice president of a startup based in Webster Groves; she and her husband have two living children.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., speaks to members of the media April 2 on Capitol Hill.

Speaking up Below are the names of some of your friends, loved ones and neighbors who have had an abortion. We are brave enough to stand up for those of us who will need an abortion in the future, and we refuse to let politicians in Jefferson City take that right away from all of us.

McConnell, in his nothing-tosee-here speech, acknowledged that “the threats and challenges are real” but cited “progress” on election security. Among the progress: “According to press reports, the Department of Defense has expanded its capabilities.” He is so concerned about the threat that he gets his information from the media? The majority leader portrayed the whole issue as a partisan squabble. He hailed what he viewed as Trump’s strong stand against Russia, citing the arming of Ukraine (Trump’s campaign opposed this), the strengthening of NATO (Trump disparaged the alliance) and new sanctions (McConnell recently backed a Trump bid to end sanctions against a Putin crony). With hand on heart, McConnell said that Democrats “are grieving” because special counsel Robert S. Mueller III did not find a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. Schumer, in his rebuttal, said that if McConnell is sincere in his talk about the Russian threat, he should “put election security on the floor.” That’s unlikely. Trump fears attention to Russia’s interference makes him look illegitimate. And McConnell doesn’t want to upset Trump. McConnell was right about one thing on Tuesday. He said that “unhinged partisanship” means “Putin and his agents need only stand on the sidelines and watch us as their job is actually done for them.” That’s true in greatest part because of McConnell. The majority leader can reasonably claim Democrats are partisan in their wish to investigate Trump further. But Russia’s election interference is different. This is an ongoing attack against the United States — and McConnell weakens our defenses. Dana Milbank Twitter: @Milbank Copyright The Washington Post

If impeachment comes, it’s on Trump and the GOP Party’s reckless partisanship is leaving Democrats with few options. E.J. DIONNE Washington Post

PATRICK SEMANSKY, ASSOCIATED PRESS

No, Mitch McConnell, it isn’t ‘case closed’

(abortions at 12 and 15 weeks) ! Stephanie Coalson, St. Louis

Our nation does not have to face a constitutional crisis, but we are barreling toward one at breakneck speed. The House should not have to move quickly toward impeachment, but it may now have little choice. And let’s be clear: The prime mover in all this, who is perfectly happy to wreck our institutions to serve his own selfish interests, is President Donald Trump. But we would not be courting chaos if Republicans in the House and Senate had not abandoned their commitments to fact and accountability in their zeal to help the president escape the consequences of his actions. The week’s most important event was thus not Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s craven, reckless partisanship in declaring “case closed” on Trump. He said this despite special counsel Robert Mueller’s report describing so many instances of obstruction of justice that more than 700 former federal prosecutors signed a letter declaring that were Trump not president, the findings would lead to “multiple felony charges.” Case closed? The report also detailed at least 140 contacts with Russian nationals and WikiLeaks, or their intermediaries, by Trump and 18 of his associates, as The New York Times reported. We are not supposed to care about this? Case closed? And in his acidic soliloquy on Tuesday, McConnell had the shameless audacity to blame President Barack Obama for Russia’s interference when it was McConnell himself who resisted the intelligence community’s findings about Russian meddling before the 2016 election. McConnell also led GOP efforts to block a bipartisan statement Obama sought that would’ve given the country some warning about what Vladimir Putin’s agents were doing. McConnell’s only consistency is his party-beforecountry commitment to protecting Trump. There are Republicans who purport to care about more than Trump’s well-being and comfort. With McConnell clearly all-in on the president’s twisting of the law and flouting of Congress’ legitimate authority, Republican senators who claim to care about the Constitution need to speak up. And they should do so now, not after they have had weeks or months to put their fingers to the wind. Where are Sens. Cory Gardner, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Martha

McSally, Joni Ernst and Thom Tillis? Any four of them could join with Senate Democrats to begin building a Coalition for Accountability. And during the House Judiciary debate over the contempt citation for Barr, Republican members spoke in favor of the only infrastructure program they’re likely to embrace this year: the construction of an impenetrable stone wall keeping Congress from getting any information out of this administration. It should be astounding that Republicans want to investigate FBI officials — a goal pressed during the Judiciary Committee debate by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio — for daring to do their jobs investigating the Trump campaign’s potential Russian ties. But what’s more astonishing is that we are no longer surprised that members of Trump’s party would undercut work aimed at protecting our democracy from intrusion by a hostile foreign power in order to aggrandize a scam artist. His latest boast, by the way, is that he avoided taxes for “sport.” With Republicans cheering on Trump’s campaign to block Congress’ access to witnesses and documents, House Democrats have fewer and fewer options short of impeachment to establish that the rule of law still exists. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hoping for a more decorous process. Ideally, the House would hold hearings and increase public awareness about the charges against Trump without having to rush the issue of whether the president should be removed. On Wednesday, she voiced her frustration over seeing this option strangled by Trump’s witness gag-order. She even introduced a new phrase into the political lexicon during a Washington Post interview, saying the president was “becoming self-impeachable.” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., later elucidated Pelosi’s linguistic innovation on MSNBC. In its across-the-board resistance, “the administration is not helping their own cause here, unless impeachment is exactly what the president wants.” Schiff, who shares Pelosi’s caution, acknowledged that “the degree to which the administration is now obstructing Congress ... adds weight to the argument of those who are urging impeachment.” We don’t know if Trump longs for impeachment to rally his supporters. What we do know is that he and his party are unwilling to make the substantive accommodations to transparency that would avert an all-out political war. If it comes to an impeachment battle, the president and the GOP will have fired the first shots. E.J. Dionne Twitter: @EJDionne Copyright The Washington Post

Guard who detained school shooting suspect opened fire BY P. SOLOMON BANDA AND KATHLEEN FOODY

Associated Press

DENVER — A security guard credited with capturing one of the two suspects in this week’s suburban Denver school shooting fired his weapon inside the school, a law enforcement official with knowledge of the case told The Associated Press on Thursday. The security guard has not been identified but is a former Marine who has stayed out of the public eye since Tuesday, when two suspects opened fire at the STEM School Highlands Ranch, killing one student and injuring eight. Two news organizations citing anonymous sources reported that authorities are investigating whether the guard mistakenly fired at a responding sheriff’s deputy and may have wounded a student. The law enforcement official spoke to The Associated Press on anonymity because the official was not authorized to make information public. The official did not address whether anyone was hit by the security guard’s firing. An attorney for the guard declined to directly answer questions Thursday about the media reports. But the attorney, Robert Burk, said his client acted in the best interests of protecting the children at the school and helped resolve the situation without further bloodshed. “He ran there as quick as he could and took what I think is decisive action that helped save lives,” Burk said. Three students have been hailed as heroes for disarming one of the suspects during Tuesday’s shooting. One of them, Kendrick Castillo, was shot and killed during the struggle and a second, Joshua Jones, is recovering at home after being shot twice. The security guard con-

fronted and apprehended a suspect in a hallway, his employer, Grant Whitus of Boss High Level Protection, has said. Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock previously said one of the shooters was being restrained by a private security guard when deputies arrived. Burk said the security guard heard reports of gunfire over his radio and ran to the area as fast as he could. Burk would not describe what his client saw or did once he arrived, saying he did not want to interfere with the ongoing investigation. But he said the guard, a Marine Corps veteran who was deployed to Afghanistan and previously worked for the Jefferson County sheriff’s office, was a hero. “I know that he took action to protect the children and help resolve the situation without further bloodshed or violence and I don’t know of any facts to support anything that my client did that was legally wrong or wasn’t in the best interests of protecting the children,” Burk said. Officials have identified the suspects as 18-yearold Devon Erickson and 16-year-old Maya McKinney, whose attorney said uses male pronouns and the name Alec. The two allegedly walked into the school through an entrance without metal detectors and opened fire in two classrooms just miles away from Columbine High School and just weeks after the 20th anniversary of a massacre there. Investigators have not offered a motive for the shooting. Erickson and McKinney are scheduled to appear in court Friday to hear the charges filed against them. Castillo was remembered Wednesday night at a vigil that was hit by disruptions, with many students staging a walk-

Hundreds packed a high school gym for the event organized by the student arm of the Brady gun con-

trol group that included pro-gun control speeches by presidential hopeful Sen. Michael Bennet and U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, both Democrats. At one point, someone shouted that students

should be allowed to speak, and organizers talked with students in a hallway about how to include them. Some students chanted and others railed against the media and called for remembering Castillo.

Students eventually were invited to speak. Teacher Emily Muellenberg told Colorado Public Radio that organizers had reached out to students before the event but didn’t hear back.

2 men indicted in Anthem hack

US seizes N. Korean ship

INDIANAPOLIS — A federal grand jury has indicted two Chinese men for hacking into the computers of health insurer Anthem Inc. and three other unnamed companies, the Justice Department said Thursday. The indictment alleges Fujie Wang, 32, and a man identified only as John Doe stole the personal information of nearly 79 million people — including names, birthdates, Social Security numbers and medical IDs — from Anthem in 2015 in the biggest known health care hack in U.S. history. Indianapolis-based Anthem, the nation’s second-largest health insurer, agreed last October to pay the government a record $16 million to settle potential privacy violations. Anthem issued a statement saying it was “pleased” with the indictment.

Higher Trump deficits projected

Asian nation launched suspected short-range missiles hours earlier BY ERIC TUCKER

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The U.S. said Thursday that it has seized a North Korean cargo ship that was used to violate international sanctions, a first-of-its kind enforcement action that comes amid a tense moment in relations between the two countries. The “Wise Honest,” North Korea’s second largest cargo ship, was detained in April 2018 as it traveled toward Indonesia. It’s now in the process of being moved to American Samoa, Justice Department officials said. Officials made the announcement hours after North Korea fired two suspected short-range

missiles toward the sea, the second weapons launch in five days and a possible signal that stalled talks over its nuclear weapons program are in trouble. The public disclosure that the vessel is in U.S. custody could further inflame tensions, though U.S. officials said the timing of their complaint was not a response to the missile launch. Justice Department lawyers laid out the case for confiscating the ship in a complaint filed in New York, arguing that payments for maintenance and operation of the vessel were channeled through unwitting U.S. financial institutions in violation of American law. The coal trade itself is also believed to fund the isolated country’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. “This sanctions-busting ship is now out of service,” said Assistant Attorney General John Demers, the Justice Department’s

top national security official. He later added: “The U.S. sanctions against North Korea reflect the threat these programs pose to U.S. national security.” The 581-foot Wise Honest was used for coal transports to ports in China, Russia and other countries, according to the complaint, generating badly needed revenue to a country that is under U.N. sanctions because of its nuclear weapons program. The ship also delivered heavy machinery back to North Korea. The vessel was owned by a subsidiary of a North Korean shipping company that is controlled by the country’s military and is on a Treasury Department sanctions list, officials said. North Korea sought to disguise the nationality of the ship and the origin of its cargo, according to the complaint. The ship, in what U.S. officials say was a clear act of con-

Shanahan tabbed as defense secretary

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s budget plan would produce significantly larger budget deficits than promised when it was released in March, mostly because its estimates of economic growth are too rosy, according to a new nonpartisan analysis Thursday. The Congressional Budget Office estimate said Trump’s budget, if enacted in its entirety, would produce deficits that would be $2.7 trillion greater over the coming decade than promised by the White House budget office. CBO predicted deficits under Trump’s plan, which was criticized by both Democrats and Republicans, would total almost $10 trillion over 2020 through 2029. The administration promised deficits totaling $7.3 trillion.

BRIEFLY SYNAGOGUE SHOOTINGS: A gunman who killed a woman and wounded three during services at a Southern California synagogue later told a 911 dispatcher he had done it because “the Jewish people are destroying the white race,” prosecutors said Thursday in announcing 109 hate crime and other charges against the suspect, John T. Earnest. TREATMENT ORDERED: A judge has ruled that a 3-yearold Florida boy must resume his cancer treatment, despite his parents’ wishes. A Hillsborough County circuit judge ruled Wednesday that Noah McAdams must resume chemotherapy to treat his leukemia. Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland-Ball want to treat their son with natural remedies. ROSENSTEIN: Hundreds of Justice Department employees gathered Thursday to send off Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, capping a tenure marked by a tumultuous relationship with President Donald Trump. Rosenstein’s tenure as the department’s No. 2 coincided with the firing of ex-FBI director James Comey and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. SOUTH AFRICA: The ruling African National Congress held a comfortable lead in South Africa’s presidential and parliamentary election with more than two-thirds of the vote counted Thursday, but the incomplete count showed the party received less support than in the last balloting five years ago. HOUSE RACE: Former CIA operative Valerie Plame said Thursday she will run for the Democratic nomination to an open congressional seat in New Mexico. Plame became a national figure after her identity as a CIA operative was leaked by President George W. Bush’s administration in an effort to discredit her then-husband, diplomat Joe Wilson. BAGS BANNED: Mexico City lawmakers have passed a ban on plastic bags, utensils and other disposable plastic items to take effect at the end of 2020. The city of more than 9 million residents is known for a vibrant street food and carry-out culture. The ban would include straws, utensils, balloons and other single-use items in 2021. — Associated Press

cealment, also turned off an automatic signal system intended to alert other ships of its course and location. Indonesian authorities intercepted and seized the Wise Honest in the East China Sea a month after it was photographed at the port of Nampo, North Korea, where it took on a load of coal. The captain of the ship was charged in Indonesia with violating that country’s maritime laws and convicted, the complaint says. It was not immediately clear what happened to the rest of the crew, which at least at one time totaled two dozen members. The U.S. has prosecuted people and businesses for violating sanctions but has never before seized a North Korean ship. The country will have an opportunity to contest the seizure in court. If the U.S. prevails, it will be able to sell the vessel.

Trump faces mounting foreign policy challenges BY CATHERINE LUCEY AND ROBERT BURNS

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — New North Korea missile tests. A trade standoff with China. Fresh nuclear tensions with Iran. President Donald Trump’s foreign policy challenges are mounting around the world, showing the limits of his selftouted ability to make a deal and perhaps the difficulty of focusing primarily on domestic concerns for his “America first” administration. They’re also forcing him into some contorted positions, for example, backing regime change in Venezuela without any displays of force and saying he’s open to talks with Iran while dispatching an aircraft carrier and bombers to the Middle East. Since taking office, Trump has specialized in publicly hectoring friendly partners, embracing foes and resisting too much advice. Critics labeled him an unreliable

force, while allies say he followed through on a promise to disrupt foreign policy norms. Trump inherited some of his foreign policy problems, such as North Korea, Syria and Afghanistan, but has yet to solve them. His hands-on approach to North Korea, holding the first meetings between a U.S. president and that country’s leader, has not yielded a deal to curtail North Korea’s nuclear missile program. On other fronts, Trump turned up the heat. His trade clash with China remains unresolved as he brandishes additional tariff hikes. With Iran, Trump pulled the U.S. out of the nuclear deal that the Obama administration negotiated along with five other world powers, and he recently increased the pressure, designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization and deploying military forces to the Persian Gulf. He said Thursday that he would like to get a call from Iran’s

leaders to negotiate. Cliff Kupchan, chairman of Eurasia Group, described China and Iran as the two most pressing issues for the U.S. But he noted that Trump’s moves are not unexpected. “With China and Iran we’re seeing a strategically very predictable president play out his hand,” he said. Still, he said that handling the range of challenges proves that the administration can manage to “walk and chew gum at the same time.” Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Trump rattled through some of the top concerns. He said the U.S. was looking “very seriously right now” at North Korea’s recent military tests. On trade talks with China, he said the U.S. would be fine either way, but said Chinese President Xi Jinping wrote him a “beautiful” letter. And amid a rising clash with Iran, he declared, “we have information that you don’t want to know about.”

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Thursday said he will nominate Patrick Shanahan to be his second secretary of defense, putting an end to months of speculation about the former Boeing executive’s standing in the administration. Shanahan has been leading the Pentagon as acting secretary since Jan. 1, a highly unusual arrangement for arguably the most sensitive Cabinet position. He took over after Jim Mattis resigned. “Acting Secretary Shanahan has proven over the last several months that he is beyond qualified to lead the Department of Defense, and he will continue to do an excellent job,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. Moments later, Shanahan spoke to reporters outside the Pentagon, saying he was very excited about the nomination and looking forward to a job he said requires him to “spin a lot of plates.” “The biggest challenge is balancing it all. For me it’s about practicing selectful neglect, so that we can stay focused on the future,” Shanahan said. Indeed, in Shanahan’s tenure at the department he’s had to deal with a wide array of international hotspots, ranging from missile launches by North Korea to the sudden shift of military ships and aircraft to the Middle East to deal with potential threats from Iran. The announcement comes close on the heels of an investigation by the Defense Department’s inspector general over accusations that Shanahan had shown favoritism toward Boeing during his time as deputy defense secretary, while disparaging Boeing competitors. The probe appeared to stall his nomination, but the IG wrapped up the investigation rapidly and cleared Shanahan of any wrongdoing.

Some House members consider taking pay raise BY ANDREW TAYLOR

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Some senior House lawmakers, frustrated by a decade of frozen congressional salaries, are quietly exploring whether to accept an annual pay raise that they’ve shunned since Barack Obama was first president. It’s a long shot at best, requiring comity that’s in short supply in a Capitol riven with partisanship. More than two-thirds of House members have never gotten a pay raise as Congress has voted each year since 2009 to reject an annual cost-of-living adjustment that’s due them under a 30-year-old reform measure. The optics for Democrats of restoring the COLA after Republican leaders killed it

each year for eight years running are bad politically. And President Donald Trump, feuding with Democratic lawmakers, could crush any effort to revive the pay raise by attacking Congress with a single tweet. Still, housing costs in the Washington area are skyrocketing — most lawmakers maintain two homes — and the annual salary of $174,000 doesn’t go so far in the face of 10 years of inflation, not to speak of soaring college tuition and other costs. Concern is rising that some members are struggling to keep up. Had members taken the pay raises over the past decade, salaries would be in the range of $208,000 or so. “It’s been more than a decade,”

said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “I’ve got members who are leaving over this.” McCarthy says he’s open to the idea but hasn’t given it much attention. But many rank-and-file lawmakers recoil when asked about taking their pay hike. The most recent foregone raise would have been $4,000, and the estimated raise for next year would be in that ballpark. “A salary increase for us? It’s not very high on my radar and it’d be as popular as the plague,” said Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Calif. “It’d show kind of a disconnect with the people.” The pay raise has come to light

now because the annual appropriations process, which is usually the means of killing the COLA, is underway. The pay raise is delivered annually, based on inflation, unless lawmakers vote to overturn it. Democrats opted not to try to kill the pay raise in drafting the legislative branch spending bill, the vehicle addressing the topic in recent years, but aides say the pay raise could be nixed later on or in a different bill. Leaving the issue out of the pending legislative funding bill “leaves the option open for a little bit longer to let discussions with members continue in case it materializes,” said a senior House aide, who requested anonymity because the topic is so sensitive.

US pushes for way to enforce China trade deal BY PAUL WISEMAN AND JOE MCDONALD

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In trying to hammer out a trade agreement with China, the Trump administration may be drawing inspiration from classic rock, specifically The Who’s anthem “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” Fed up with China for breaking past promises, the administration is insisting on provisions designed to force the Chinese to live up to any commitments they make in trade talks that entered an 11th round on Thursday. In fact, top U.S. trade negotiator Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin this week accused the Chinese of

already reneging on concessions they’d made earlier in the negotiations. In retaliation for that alleged backsliding, the United States was poised to dramatically escalate the trade war between the world’s two biggest economies at late Thursday night — by raising import taxes on $200 billion in Chinese goods from 10% to 25%. And President Donald Trump said he’s preparing to slap 25% tariffs on another $325 billion in Chinese imports, covering everything China ships to the United States. The two countries have been battling over U.S. allegations that China steals technology and pressures American companies into

handing over trade secrets, part of an aggressive campaign to turn Chinese companies into world leaders in robotics, electric cars and other advanced industries. The U.S. currently is levying 10% tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports and 25% on another $50 billion. The Chinese have retaliated by targeting $110 billion in U.S. products and are threatening more sanctions if Washington goes ahead with its plan to raise tariffs. When the talks began last year, it appeared that the Chinese might try to appease Trump by agreeing to buy lots of American products — especially soybeans and liquefied natural gas — and put a dent in America’s massive trade deficit

with China, a whopping $379 billion last year. But as the talks dragged on, it became increasingly apparent that “a heap of soybeans isn’t going to get the job done,” said Amanda DeBusk, chair of the international trade practice at the law firm Dechert LLP and a former U.S. Commerce Department official. Business groups, disappointed that China didn’t fully open up to foreign competition after joining the World Trade Organization in 2001, are pressuring the administration to hold out for a deal that requires China to abandon predatory trade practices, stop subsidizing homegrown companies and treat foreign firms more fairly.

“It was way past time to confront China on many of these problems,” said Michael Wessel, a member of the congressionally created U.S.-China Economic Security Review Commission and president of The Wessel Group consulting firm. “They’ve been allowed to skate for far too many years.” Reaching a deal with China to end the tariff war would be only the first hurdle for the Trump administration. Next would come the hard part: enforcing the agreement. The Trump administration wants Beijing to accept an enforcement mechanism with penalties to make sure it carries out its commitments.

The coffin of late Jewish French-American World War II veteran Bernard Dargols is carried during a funeral ceremony at Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris on Thursday. Dargols waded onto Omaha Beach in June 1944 as an American soldier to help liberate France from Nazis who persecuted his Jewish family. At 98, Dargols died last week.

D-Day memories fade as war’s witnesses die BY ANGELA CHARLTON

Associated Press

PARIS — One more funeral, one less witness to the world’s worst war. Bernard Dargols lived almost long enough to join the celebrations next month marking 75 years since the D-Day, 75 years since he waded onto Omaha Beach as an American soldier to help liberate France from the Nazis who persecuted his Jewish family. Just shy of his 99th birthday, Dargols died last week. To the strains of his beloved American jazz, he was laid to rest Thursday at France’s most famous cemetery, Pere Lachaise. An ever-smaller number of veterans will stand on Normandy’s shores on June 6 for D-Day’s 75th anniversary. Many will salute fallen comrades from their wheelchairs. As each year passes, more firsthand witnesses to history are gone. Four weeks from now, U.S. President Donald Trump and other world leaders will pay homage to the more than 2 million American, British, Canadian and other Allied forces involved in the D-Day operation on June 6, 1944, and the ensuing battle for Normandy that helped pave the way for Hitler’s defeat. Dargols outlived most of them, and knew the importance of sustaining their memory. “I’m convinced that we have to talk about the war to children, so

that they understand how much they need to preserve the peace,” he wrote in a 2012 memoir. Until the end, Dargols battled complacency, intolerance and Holocaust deniers who claim that D-Day was “just a movie.” In recent years, “seeing any type of violence, of anti-Semitism and racism, either in France in Europe or in the U.S.” really upset him, granddaughter Caroline Jolivet said. Normandy schoolteachers, veterans’ families and military memorials are laboring against time to record survivors’ stories for posterity. In history’s biggest amphibious invasion, on that fateful June 6, some 160,000 Allied forces came ashore to launch Operation Overlord to wrest Normandy from Nazi control. More than 4,000 Allied forces were killed on that day alone. Nearly half a million people were killed on both sides by the time the Allies liberated Paris in August 1944. It’s unclear exactly how many D-Day veterans are alive today. The survivors are now in their 90s or 100s. Of the 73,000 Americans who took part, just 30 are currently scheduled to come to France for this year’s anniversary. The U.S. Veterans Administration estimates that about 348 American World War II veterans die every day. All but three of the 177 French forces involved in D-Day are gone.

Every day, the names of the departed accumulate, tweeted by veterans groups, published in local newspapers. Dargols wanted to be in Normandy this year, it meant a lot to him. His story is both unusual and emblematic: Born in France, he left Paris in 1938 for New York to learn his father’s sewing machine trade. He watched from afar, sickened, as the Nazis occupied his homeland. His Jewish relatives were sent to camps, or fled in fear. Determined to fight back but skeptical of French General Charles de Gaulle’s resistance force, he joined the U.S. Army instead. With the 2nd Infantry Division, Dargols sailed from Britain on June 5 and only made it to Normandy on June 8, after three interminable days on choppy seas. The road he took inland from Omaha Beach now carries his name. The battle to wrest Normandy from the Nazis took longer than the Allies thought, but for Dargols the prize at the end was invaluable. When he made it to Paris, he went to his childhood apartment and found his mother — unexpectedly alive. For four decades, he didn’t talk much about the war. But as more and more survivors died, and at his granddaughter’s urging, he realized the importance of speaking out and sharing his stories with schools and journalists.

Friends and family remembered him Thursday as shy but courageous, a lover of oysters and pastrami sandwiches, known for his mischievous smile. Jolivet, his granddaughter, told the AP of his yearning for leaders who “bring people together, instead of divide them.” Dargols would have had a clear message for the D-Day anniversary, she said: “Never take democracy for granted. Dictatorship is always a bad solution. Violence is always a bad solution. Keep democracy alive. Fight for democracy, for freedom, for peace.” The cultural director at Normandy’s World War II memorial in Caen, Isabelle Bournier, frets about this fading message, as she watches schoolchildren cycle through her museum every day. “The parents and grandparents of 13-year-olds today didn’t experience the war, so the family stories, the family history — where helmets are brought out, where we spoke about what it was like — has been lost,” she said. “They don’t know the names of the landing beaches,” she says. “Pupils spend less time studying World War II than they did 30 years ago, and so the role of D-Day has been reduced.” Dargols himself worried about the day when all the veterans will be gone. “It could start again,” he wrote in his memoir. “We must be vigilant, at all times.”

A growing number of states call porn a health crisis BY LINDSAY WHITEHURST AND JONATHAN J. COOPER

Associated Press

PHOENIX — More than a dozen states have moved to declare pornography a public health crisis, raising concerns among some experts who say the label goes too far and carries its own risks. The Arizona Senate approved a resolution this week calling for a systemic effort to prevent exposure to porn that’s increasingly accessible to younger kids online. At least one legislative chamber has adopted a similar resolution in 15 other states. “It is an epidemic in our society, and this makes a statement that we

have a problem,” said Arizona Sen. Sylvia Allen, a Republican who blamed pornography for contributing to violence against women, sexual activity among teens and unintended pregnancies. The resolution that passed Monday doesn’t ban pornography or create any other legal changes, but it could signal future action. Similar declarations have been passed in GOP-controlled states ranging from Tennessee to Montana and been adopted in the Republican Party’s national platform. Many of the resolutions are based on a model written by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, an anti-porn group

that cites research linking it to a range of problems and argues that it’s become too ubiquitous for individuals to combat alone. But others say the public-crisis label is a misguided approach. Research has raised questions about the effect of explicit material on young kids, but links to other often-cited issues like human trafficking are much more tenuous, said Emily Rothman, a community health sciences professor at Boston University. The resolutions risk creating a stigma for marginalized groups like LGBTQ people and miss a key piece of the puzzle by leaving out calls for more robust sex education

for teenagers, she said. And porn isn’t like a deadly virus, she said. “If you stub your toe, that might be something you can’t solve yourself, but that doesn’t make it a public health issue,” Rothman said. Several Arizona Democrats said the state has more important health threats to confront, such as measles, opioids, homelessness and suicide. Plus, pornography can be part of a healthy sex life for adults, said Albuquerque-based sex therapist David Ley, who sees the resolutions as a backlash against changing attitudes about sexuality.

WASHINGTON — The animated video begins with a photo of the black flags of jihad. Seconds later, it flashes highlights of a year of social media posts: plaques of anti-Semitic verses, talk of retribution and a photo of two men carrying more jihadi flags while they burn the stars and stripes. It wasn’t produced by extremists; it was created by Facebook. In a clever bit of self-promotion, the social media giant takes a year of a user’s content and auto-generates a celebratory video. In this case, the user called himself “AbdelRahim Moussa, the Caliphate.” “Thanks for being here, from Facebook” the video concludes in a cartoon bubble before flashing the company’s famous “thumb’s up.” Facebook likes to give the impression that it’s staying ahead of extremists by taking down their posts, often before users ever even see them. But a confidential whistleblower’s complaint to the Securities and Exchange Commission obtained by The Associated Press alleges the social media company has exaggerated its success. Even worse, it shows that the company is inadvertently making use of propaganda by militant groups to auto-generate videos and pages that could be used for networking by extremists. According to the complaint, over a five-month period last year, researchers monitored pages by users who affiliated themselves with groups the U.S. State Department has designated as terrorist organizations. In that period, 38% of the posts with prominent symbols of extremist groups were removed. In its own review, the AP found that as of this month, much of the banned content cited in the study — an execution video, images of severed heads, propaganda honoring martyred militants — slipped through the algorithmic web and remained easy to find on Facebook. The complaint is landing as Facebook tries to stay ahead of a growing array of criticism over its privacy practices and its ability to keep hate speech, live-streamed murders and suicides off its service. In the face of criticism, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has spoken of his pride in the company’s ability to weed out violent posts automatically through artificial intelligence. “In areas like terrorism, for alQaida and ISIS-related content, now 99% of the content that we take down in the category our systems flag proactively before anyone sees it,” Zuckerberg said in an earnings call last month. Then he added: “That’s what really good looks like.” Zuckerberg did not offer an estimate of how much of total prohibited content is being removed. The research behind the SEC complaint — though based on a limited sample size — suggests it is not as much as Facebook has implied.The complaint is aimed at spotlighting the shortfall. Last year, researchers began monitoring users who explicitly identified themselves as members of extremist groups. This wasn’t hard to document. Some of these people even list the extremist groups as their employers. As a stark indication of how easily users can evade Facebook, one page from a user called “Nawan al-Farancsa” has a header whose white lettering against a black background says in English “The Islamic State.” The banner is punctuated with a photo of an explosive mushroom cloud rising from a city. The page, still up in recent days, apparently escaped Facebook’s systems, because the letters were not searchable text but embedded in a graphic block.

Descendants reflect on Chinese rail workers BY TERRY TANG

Associated Press

Michael Kwan can’t help but think about what life was like on a daily basis for his great-great-grandfather in the 1860s, working 12hour days in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range on the Transcontinental Railroad that would reshape the American landscape. Kwan “ Yo u ’ r e not talking about 12 hours sitting at a desk or sitting on a bench. You’re talking about 12 hours of lifting and hammering and blowing things up,” said Kwan, a judge in Salt Lake City. “And I complain when my trainer says we’re going to add 10 pounds.” Kwan and other Chinese Americans are pushing for these workers — some of whom lost their lives building the Western portion of the railroad — to get more than a token mention in history books. This week marks 150 years since the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, and several days’ worth of events are planned. Kwan, who is president of the Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association, and his group are participating as part of a drive to be more involved in railroad celebrations and long-term projects. The group will be in Promontory Summit, Utah, Friday for a photo reenactment of the hammering of the final golden spike of the Transcontinental Railroad on May 10, 1869. And Margaret Yee, whose ancestors helped build the railroad, tapped a ceremonial spike alongside Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and a descendant of Union Pacific’s chief engineer on the project at an event Thursday in Ogden, Utah. “We haven’t really pushed the envelope and insisted that these contributions be recognized until fairly recently,” Kwan said. The descendants group is raising money for a statue of a Chinese railroad worker at Golden Spike National Historic Park. Like previous years, they are sponsoring this week’s Golden Spike Conference, which includes theatrical productions and panels, including one with Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Michael Solorio feels fortunate that his family

Margaret Yee, whose ancestors helped build the railroad, stands in front of the Big Boy No. 4014 during the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad completion Thursday at Union Station in Ogden, Utah. Yee helped tap a ceremonial spike alongside Utah Gov. Gary Herbert at the event. was able to determine that his maternal great-greatgreat-grandfather, Lim Lip Hong, worked as a foreman on the Central Pacific Railroad while thousands of other workers remain nameless. A junior at Stanford University, it’s not lost on him that he is attending a school founded by Central Pacific Railroad president Leland Stanford, who profited from Chinese labor. “It feels kind of weird to know that this school stands because of the labor of my great-grandfather and many others like him put in,” Solorio said. “Even after all this work was put in to make the railroad, there continued to be real intense racism against the Chinese.” The 20,000 Chinese immigrants who worked on the Central Pacific portion, from California to Utah, between 1864 and 1869 accounted for about 90% of that railroad’s workforce, said Stanford University professor Gordon Chang. Other groups including the Irish, members of The Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and former slaves navigating Reconstruction also helped work on the entire railroad. Chinese laborers were often the most exploited. They contended with racism, pay disparity and dangerous tasks in grueling terrain. At an elevation as high as 7,000 feet on the Sierra Nevada range, they were ordered to blast through solid granite using nitroglycerine. Some suffered brutal deaths in explosions. Avalanches also took lives. “Their bodies weren’t

recovered till next spring. Sometimes they would be uncovered as the snow melted with their work tools still in their hands,” Chang said.

There is no definitive data on the death toll among Chinese workers. While some reports back then suggest about 150 died, Chang believes deaths numbered

in the hundreds. In his book, “Ghosts of Gold Mountain,” he points to newspaper articles that mention the shipping of remains or “bone boxes” to China and Chinese

groups in America keeping their own census records. Clamoring for recognition for them has gotten louder in recent years. In 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor inducted the Chinese railroad workers into their Hall of Honor. New York Rep. Grace Meng, a Democrat, introduced a resolution in March that would honor them and renewed a call for an honorary postage stamp. Chang has gone further in ensuring Chinese laborers and their sacrifices are embedded in the historical narrative as director of the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project. The project has amassed a treasure trove of oral histories, letters, periodicals and other materials since 2012. Chang said he was surprised when hundreds of people attended a project showcase at Stanford. “I think it indicates there’s a tremendous interest and curiosity and hunger for this,” Chang said.

Trade dispute between the U.S. and China is likely to roil stock market until deal reached BY STAN CHOE AND ALEX VEIGA

Associated Press

Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street on Thursday, extending the market’s slide into a fourth straight day, as investors braced for a possible escalation in the trade war between the U.S. and China. Tension between the world’s two largest economies dragged stocks lower ahead of a Friday deadline when the United States said it would impose more tariffs on Chinese goods. The worries about trade this week have halted what has been the hottest start to

a year for U.S. stocks in decades, and the S&P 500 index is on pace for its worst week of 2019. Thursday’s sell-off began steep and widespread, but lost momentum by afternoon, allowing the market to stem some of its losses. Still, analysts said the market was likely in for more pain until the uncertainty over the costly trade dispute is resolved. “China and trade remain the biggest drag and the biggest overhang for the market,” said Ben Phillips, chief investment officer at EventShares. “If there’s not a deal within the next four to

six weeks, the market is going to continue to be under pressure and sell off.” The S&P 500 fell 8.70 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,870.72. The benchmark index has essentially given back all its April gains, though it’s still up 14.5 percent for the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 138.97 points, or 0.5 percent, to 25,828.36. It was down nearly 450 points in morning trading before regaining much of the ground it lost. The Nasdaq composite slid 32.73 points, or 0.4 percent, to 7,910.59. The Russell 2000 index of small company stocks gave up 4.92 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,570.06.

Major indexes in Europe and Asia also finished lower. Bond prices didn’t move much. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note held steady at 2.45 percent. The U.S. government has filed plans to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10% to 25 percent. The Trump administration has also threatened to extend 25 percent tariffs to another $325 billion in Chinese imports, covering everything China ships to the United States. If the increases take effect as planned, Beijing will impose “necessary countermeasures,” the Commerce Ministry said. It gave no details, but a ministry spokesman said Beijing has made

Clayton tower design revealed HBE condo project scheduled for a public hearing this month BY JACOB BARKER

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Fred Kummer’s plan for a condominium tower across the street from Clayton City Hall will have its first public hearing in front of the city’s architectural review board later this month. Plans filed with Clayton also offered the first details on the design and specifications of HBE Corp.’s proposed development at the corner of Bemiston and Maryland avenues. The $175 million building would rise 21 stories and add 110 residential units to the booming seat of St. Louis County. Plans call for 250 parking spaces in four levels of interior garage space, three of which would be below ground. There are no plans for street-level commercial space, though there would be green space added to the west side of the building. Last week, HBE’s president, Kummer, 90, dropped plans for a hotel just to the west of the planned condo tower and will instead use it as a construction staging area while he and his team finalize plans for a future development phase, likely retail and restaurant-oriented. Working with Kummer on the project are Steve Smith, CEO of the Lawrence Group; F. Stafford Manion, president of Gladys Manion Inc.; and Clayton-based Castle Design. HBE closed in February on the purchase of the northern half of the block bounded by Maryland, Bemiston and Central avenues, mostly owned by the Gershman family. Construction is planned to start after tenant leases on the site are up in February. The de-

“all necessary preparations,” suggesting it might be bracing for a worsening conflict. Such moves would mark a sharp escalation in the trade dispute that has raised prices on goods for consumers and companies. Technology stocks were among the big decliners, as many companies in the sector get much of their revenue from China. The sector slid 0.7%. Raw material producers also took heavy losses. Real estate stocks, which investors see as a safe-play sector, eked out a slight gain. Occidental Petroleum tumbled 6.4 percent after Chevron pulled Please see DOW, Page B5

Missouri’s long economic losing streak shows no signs of ending soon. Recent government figures show the state trailing the nation in economic growth for the ninth straight year. In fact, the recession years of 2008 and 2009 were the only times since 1997 that Missouri wasn’t a laggard. If the state’s gross domestic product had grown at a national-average rate for those 21 years, it would be 30 percent bigger today. That $85 billion of missing economic activity could solve a lot of problems. A 0.3 percent tax on $85 billion, for example, would produce more than enough money over 20 years to fix all 4,800 of the state’s substandard bridges. A mere 0.5 percent could boost the higher education budget by one-third. You can’t tax what doesn’t exist, though, so we continue to underfund things like roads and education. Because infrastructure and workforce factor into corporate expansion decisions, Missouri is caught in a vicious cycle. In 1997, Missouri’s per-capita GDP was 99 percent of the national average. By last year, it was 81 percent. Please see NICKLAUS, Page B4

Edgewell buys Harry’s to form new shaving war alliance Schick owner hopes for even deeper cut of skin care business BY ALEXANDRA OLSON

Associated Press

If you can’t beat them, join them. The owner of Schick razors is acquiring upstart shaving company Harry’s for $1.37 billion, continuing a trend of consolidation in the shaving industry, where established brands have struggled with the rise of digitalsavvy newcomers. About 79 percent of the deal is cash, and the remainder stock. Harry’s has bedeviled Schick and Gillette for years using innovative subscription plans and sleek packaging and competitive pricing. Under the agreement announced Thursday, investors in Harry’s Inc. will take a stake of about 11 percent of Edgewell Personal Care Co., which man-

ages Schick and other brands. Edgewell gets the Harry’s brand and access to the company’s prized direct-to-consumer marketing base. Edgewell was headquartered in Chesterfield following a 2015 split from battery maker Energizer Holdings. In recent months, Edgewell shifted its headquarters to Shelton, Conn., but maintains a large employee base in St. Louis County. Harry’s founders, Andy KatzMayfield and Jeff Raider, will become co-presidents of Edgewell’s U.S. operations when the deal closes, expected in early 2020. “This is not a situation where we’re going to get lost inside of some larger company,” KatzMayfield said in a conference call with analysts. “What was really compelling about the combination was our ability to take on bigger roles and have more impact.” Harry’s becomes the latest shaving startup to combine forces with a major consumer

brand company. Unilever bought Dollar Shave Club for $1 billion in 2016. Last year, Gillette’s parent company, Procter & Gamble, bought Walker & Co., marketer of the Bevel, a shaving brand aimed at black consumers. The Harry’s brand steps on to a much larger stage, a global one, and will be marketed through Edgewell’s enormous distribution channels. The company has a footprint in 50 markets. Outside of the U.S., Edgewell has operations in Canada, Mexico, Germany, Japan and Australia. Edgewell also owns the brands Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic and Wet Ones wipes. Since its founding in 2013, Harry’s, based in New York, has captured about 2.6 percent of the $2.8 billion men’s shaving industry, according to Euromonitor market research firm. Gillette, the brand that defined men’s shaving for a century, saw its U.S. market share fall from about 70 percent a decade ago to less than 50 percent. Schick, the

Trade tension nudges mortgage rates down BY KATHY ORTON

Washington Post

Concerns about the U.S.-China trade feud pushed mortgage rates lower this week. According to data released Thursday by Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate average slipped to 4.1 percent with an average 0.5 point. (Points are fees paid to a lender equal to 1 percent of the loan amount and are in addition to the interest rate.) It was 4.14 percent a week ago and 4.55 percent a year ago. The 15-year fixed-rate average slid to 3.57 percent with an average 0.4 point. It was 3.60 percent a week ago and 4.01 percent a year ago. The five-year adjustable-rate average ticked down to 3.63 percent with an average 0.4 point. It was 3.68 percent a week ago and 3.77 percent a year ago. With investors’ anxiety increasing after President Donald Trump threatened to further raise tariffs on Chinese goods, the yield on the 10-year Treasury sank to its lowest level in a month Tuesday, dropping to 2.45 percent. It recovered slightly on Wednesday, rising to 2.49 percent but was still below where it was at the beginning of May. “The president’s message fanned the flames of a trade dispute that had previously appeared to be nearing its conclusion,” said Matthew Speakman, an economic analyst at Zillow. “Investors subsequently fled to a safe haven in the form of bonds, which pushed mortgage rates downward.” Mortgage rates tend to follow the same path as long-term bonds. When bond yields fall, home-loan rates usually move lower as well.

“The spring buying season continues to show strength, with purchase activity rising 5 percent both weekly and annually. Healthy economic growth, an outstanding labor market and low mortgage rates are fueling home buyer interest in most of the country. Purchase applications have now risen year over year for three consecutive months.” Bob Broeksmit, president and chief executive of MBA Because of the uncertainty surrounding the trade talks, it is difficult to predict where rates are headed. However, Bankrate. com, which puts out a weekly mortgage rate trend index, found that more than threequarters of the experts it surveyed expect rates to go down in the coming week. “If this trade deal breaks off and tariffs rise, we can see more weakness in future global trade data and stocks can sell off since we are near all-time highs,” said Logan Mohtashami, senior loan officer at AMC Lending Group in Irvine, California. “If a deal is made or an extension happens

on Friday, look for the 10-year yield to be in a range of 2.44 to 2.58 percent for some time. Even with the solid jobs data and the 3.2 percent (first quarter) GDP, we are all waiting for this Friday to see where this trade spat takes us on yields.” Meanwhile, two consecutive weeks of rate declines caused mortgage applications to pick up for the first time in weeks. According to the latest data from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), the market composite index — a measure of total loan application volume — increased 2.7 percent from a week earlier.

Brick River Cider Co. in St. Louis has won a Preserve Missouri award.

index ticked up 1 percent from the previous week, while the purchase index rose 4 percent. The refinance share of mortgage activity accounted for 37.9 percent of all applications. “The spring buying season continues to show strength, with purchase activity rising 5 percent both weekly and annually,” said Bob Broeksmit, president and chief executive of MBA. “Healthy economic growth, an outstanding labor market and low mortgage rates are fueling home buyer interest in most of the country. Purchase applications have now risen year over year for three consecutive months.” The MBA also released its mortgage credit availability index (MCAI) this week that showed credit availability increased in April. The MCAI rose 2.1 percent, to 186 last month. An increase in the MCAI indicates that lending standards are loosening, while a decrease signals that they are tightening. “Credit supply increased 2 percent in April and was driven by a 7 percent gain in the jumbo index, which reached its highest level since the beginning of the MCAI in 2011,” Joel Kan, an MBA economist, said in a statement. “Additionally, investors continued a trend from March of further increasing their willingness to purchase more (non-qualified mortgage) and nonagency jumbo loans. The high-end of the purchase market had shown weakness earlier this year, before the recent decline in mortgage rates, and it appears investors are trying to remain competitive in that segment of the market.”

BUSINESS DIGEST Baue funeral business sold to Canadian firm: Park Lawn Corp. is expanding in the St. Louis area by acquiring The Baue Funeral Home Co. from Lisa Baue. Baue Funeral Home operates four funeral homes in St. Charles County. Park Lawn said it’s paying $101.5 million to acquire both Horan & McConaty Funeral Services Inc. in Denver and Baue. The Colorado funeral business is owned by John Horan. “Horan and Baue are preeminent funeral home and cemetery businesses in two large metropolitan markets in the U.S., serving their respective communities for generations,” Andrew Clark, chairman and CEO of Park Lawn, said in a statement. “I am delighted that both families will remain involved in the businesses into the future.” Earlier this month, Toronto-based Park Lawn acquired St. Louis-based John L. Ziegenhein & Sons Funeral Homes for $4.2 million. U.S. trade deficit edges up to $50 billion in March: The U.S. trade deficit increased slightly in March, even though the deficit with China fell to the lowest point in five years. The deficit in goods and services edged up 1.5 percent to $50 billion in March after falling 3.6 percent in February,the Commerce Department reported Thursday. The deficit is the difference between what America sells to the rest of the world and what it imports. Exports rose 1 percent to $212 billion in March while imports rose a slightly faster 1.1 percent to $262 billion. The deficit in goods with China dropped 16.2 percent to $20.7 billion, the lowest level since March 2014. The deficit with Mexico jumped to $9.5 billion in March, the highest on record, while the deficit with Canada was unchanged at $1.4 billion. Ameren’s first quarter profit rises: Ameren reported stronger first quarter earnings Thursday compared to the same time a year ago, citing benefits from infrastructure investments and lower income tax rates. For the three months that ended March 31, the St. Louis-based energy utility reported net income of $193 million, compared to $153 million during the first quarter of 2018 — a more than 26 percent increase. Quarterly income taxes, alone, dropped by $15 million,from $42 million last year to $27 million this year.

Uber shifts into lower gear, prices IPO at $45 per share: Uber is about to embark on a wild ride on Wall Street with the biggest and most hotly debated IPO in years. The world’s leading ride-hailing service set the stage for its longawaited arrival on the stock market by pricing its initial public offering at $45 per share Thursday. The price is at the lower end of its targeted range of $44 to $50 per share. The pricing may have been driven by the escalating doubts about Uber’s ability to make money since its main rival, Lyft, went public six weeks ago and continues to see its stock drop. Even at the tamped-down price, Uber now has a market value of $82 billion — significantly more than century-old automakers General Motors and Ford Motor. Stamps.com craters after 2019 profit outlook is slashed: Stamps.com Inc. plunged nearly 56 percent Thursday, dropping to its lowest in more than four years, after the company slashed its profit outlook for the full year, fueling investor concerns about its ability to protect margins in the absence of a key partnership with the U.S. Postal Service. The company, which makes software that lets customers print postage for U.S. mail, had set its earnings forecast for the year in February, when it reported fourth-quarter results and also said it had ended the USPS partnership. While it expected the discontinuation to result in some “short term pain,” the latest outlook suggested that pain may be more severe than anticipated. The more than 50 percent slide in Stamps’ shares after two consecutive quarterly results is rare, and according to George Pearkes, a macro strategist at Bespoke Investment Group, there are “zero instances” of a U.S. stock dropping 50 percent on earnings twice in a row, since 2001, when Bespoke’s data begins. The company said it now expected a profit of $3.35 to $4.85 a share for the full year, down from its prior view of $5.15 to $6.15 per share. Stamps.com shares, which sank nearly 60 percent after the February announcement alone, have now lost 76 percent of their value so far this year. The company’s shares closed at $36.90 Thursday, down nearly 56 percent from Wednesday’s closing price. From staff and wire reports

Trump pushes remedy for ‘surprise’ billing Bipartisan fix urged for unexpected health bills from hospitals BY AMY GOLDSTEIN

Washington Post

President Donald Trump on Thursday called on Congress to pass legislation that would help protect American patients from unexpectedly large medical bills after they go to the hospital. The president said that Democrats and Republicans alike should work quickly to stop practices in the health care industry that he said are bankrupting patients by charging them for “unexpected health care costs that are absolutely out of control. No family should be blindsided by outrageous medical bills.” In remarks in the White House Roosevelt Room, Trump said that patients brought to an emergency room should not be charged extra if the hospital or ER doctors are outside their insurance network. He said that patients similarly should not be sent unexpectedly large bills if the hospital and main physician they choose for elective surgery are covered by their insurer, but an extra doctor — such as an anesthesiologist or radiologist — is not. Senior administration officials, briefing reporters just before the president spoke, said the White House also is urging Congress to require hospitals to tell elective surgery patients in advance if any of their care is to be given by staff outside their insurance network and — if so — to require the patients to be given written price estimates and the opportunity to consent or not. For a president who has been warring with House Democrats on investigations and a variety of policies, his tone was uncommonly collaborative and bipartisan.

EVAN VUCCI, AP

President Donald Trump speaks during a event on medical billing in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on Thursday in Washington. Trump is trying to position himself on the side of aggrieved health care consumers as surveys show broad concern about unexpected bills — and a belief that the government should do something about them. A poll last month by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 50 percent of the respondents said that protecting people from surprise medical bills should be a top priority for Congress, and another 36 percent said it should be an important, though not top, priority. That meant that surprise bills ranked just slightly behind lowering prescription drug costs and preserving insurance protections for people with preexisting medical conditions among health care issues that respondents wanted Congress to deal with. Trump broached the issue of what he termed “price transparency” in his State of the Union address in early February. “I am asking Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients, finally.” At the time, the White House said the president wanted to work with Congress, and the

goal was to “prevent surprise billing and empower consumers.” On Thursday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said that every patent has “the right to know what a prescription drug or health care service costs before you receive it.” Trump’s remarks came shortly before a bipartisan group of senators plans to introduce a bill later this month to limit surprise bills, culminating nearly a year of work on the issue. Two leaders of the group that has been working on the legislation, Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., attended the White House event. Thursday’s remarks were the first time the White House fleshed out any specifics of how the president wants Congress to alleviate the problem. Hassan last fall introduced a separate bill on the issue that would have created a system of binding arbitration over surprise bills between the facility or physician who provided the care and the insurer, to determine what the proper payment should be. On the call with reporters, senior administration officials said that White House does not favor that approach.

Rik Hafer and William Rogers, professors of economics at Lindenwood University, figure Missouri has been a laggard for at least half a century. They looked at population, jobs and income data since 1969 and wrote a paper titled “The Missing Million” for the Show-Me Institute. They calculated that Missouri would have 1.2 million more residents today if its population just grew at the national average. If incomes had kept pace, the average Missouri worker would earn an extra $3,387. Explaining that long slump isn’t easy. Hafer and Rogers looked at other studies that tried to relate economic growth to education, taxes, government spending and the state’s industrial mix. Such factors seem important but, they write, “it has been very difficult to pin down a dominant factor that explains Missouri’s anemic economic performance.” Hafer was surprised to learn how long ago the slump began. “I thought maybe we would find an inflection point in the late 1990s when things started getting worse,” he said. “When we looked at data back 50 years, it was obvious that things have been bad for a long time.” He and Rogers were particularly interested in data for the St. Louis and Kansas City areas, which together make up twothirds of Missouri’s economy. Big metro areas are the engines of growth in many states, but not here. The Missouri portion of the St. Louis area is right at the state average for job gains since 1969, below average in population growth and above average in income growth — but, remember, the state set a low bar for performance. The Missouri side of the Kansas City area looks even worse. Missouri’s big metros aren’t its worst economic performers — that distinction goes to the rural counties of northern Missouri and the Bootheel — but neither have they been the hot spots the state needs. To a large extent, Missouri suffers from Rust Belt syndrome. Much of the industrial base it had 50 years ago moved to the South or overseas. “It’s a real long process” to recover from that blow, Hafer says. “I don’t think people appreciate how long it takes to overcome these trends.” What the state needs to focus on now are ways to end the losing streak. If we can put aside rural-versus-urban sectionalism and focus resources on the things that matter, such as education and infrastructure, we have a chance to make the next 50 years better than the last 50.

Nike takes steps toward better fit for customers

WILFREDO LEE, ASSOCIATED PRESS

Shoppers look at shoes at the Nike Miami store in Miami Beach, Florida, in September. The sneaker seller will launch a foot-scanning tool on its app this summer that will measure and remember the length, width and other dimensions of customers’ feet. BY JOSEPH PISANI

Associated Press

Nike wants to meet your feet. The sneaker seller will launch a foot-scanning tool on its app this summer that will measure and remember the length, width and other dimensions of customers’ feet after they point a smartphone camera to their toes. The app will then tell shoppers what size to buy each of its shoes in, which Nike hopes will cut down on costly online returns as it seeks to sell more of its goods through its websites and apps. But Nike will also get something it has never had before: a flood of data on the feet of regular people, a potential goldmine for the shoe-

maker, which says it will use the information to improve the design of its shoes. Nike mainly relies on the feet of star athletes to build its kicks. “Nikes will become better and better fitting shoes for you and everyone else,” says Michael Martin, who oversees Nike’s websites and apps. Nike won’t sell or share the data to other companies, Martin says. And he says shoppers don’t have to save the foot scans to their Nike accounts. But if they do, they’ll only have to scan their feet once and Nike’s apps, websites and stores will know their dimensions every time they need to buy sneakers. Workers at Nike stores

will also be equipped with iPods to do the scanning, replacing those metal sizing contraptions. The challenging part for Nike is convincing people they need to measure their feet in the first place. Most think they already know what their shoe size is, says Brad Eckhart, who was an executive at shoe store chain Finish Line and is now a principal at retail consultancy Columbus Consulting, But Nike says it gets half a million complaints a year from customers related to fit and sizing. And it admits what many shoppers have already suspected: Each of its shoe styles fit differently, even if they are in the same size.

A leather sneaker may be tighter and require a bigger size. Knit ones may be more forgiving. And shoelaces can throw everything off. Shoe size is “effectively a lie,” says Martin. “And it’s a lie that we’ve perpetuated.” Matt Powell, a sports industry analyst at NPD Group Inc., says the tool might be most valuable for people who want to run or play basketball in their sneakers, since the wrong fit can cause injury. But Powell says most people buy sneakers just to walk around in. Still, finding the right size is a problem for shoppers: “There really is no industry standard for what is a size 10,” Powell says.

Lagging income must be addressed, Powell says BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Thursday the United States needs to find ways to address a decadeslong slowdown in income growth and upward economic mobility. In a speech at a Fed research conference, Powell said that incomes have grown more slowly for middle-class families since the 1970s than for higher-income households. In the 1950s, more than 80 percent of children born into middle-class households grew up to out-earn their parents.

Both moves have helped Harry’s become the “fastest growing men’s shaving brand in the U.S., with sales more than doubling in 2018,” according to Andrew Stablein, a research analyst at Euromonitor International. Harry’s has declined to release revenue figures. Harry’s and Dollar Shave Club capitalized on simmering consumer frustration with increasingly pricey razors. Their direct-to-consumer models allowed both brands to build a sense of intimacy with customers that traditional brands struggled to replicate, taking years to develop their own direct-to-consumer sites.

Edgewell reported a 15 percent drop in sales from its global shave business in its second quarter earnings report Thursday, and shares of the company fell nearly 16 percent, closing at $33.55. Last year, Edgewell launched a revamped version of its direct-to-consumer site, Schick.com, experimenting with products developed just for the site. It also has acquired two trendy men’s skin care brands, Texas-based Jack Black and the U.K. company Bulldog. “We were already working to be more like Harry’s, more agile and more entrepreneurial,” Edgewell CEO Rod Little said in a brief interview with The Associated Press. “It was almost a perfect combination of assets and capabilities.” Raider said Harry’s tech-

nology can be used to build direct-to-consumer sites for Edgewell’s other brands. He said they would likely be separate sites, and Harry’s.com will remain the platform for that brand’s direct-to-consumer sales. Meanwhile, Harry’s will benefit from Schick’s blade manufacturing capabilities, developed over a century. Harry’s produces its blades at a German factory that Raider and Katz-Mayfield bought for $100 million. Raider said the factory would remain the focal point for Harry’s, but the two brands are expected to transfer technology as they develop their products. “Schick has unbelievable blade technology that we have been envious of for a long time and now we can leverage that technology,” Raider told AP.

steadily diminished,” Powell said. Powell pointed to two factors contributing to the problem: an increase in income inequality and slower growth in worker productivity. Productivity, a key factor to boost living standards, has been weak over the past 10 years of this economic expansion. Powell also noted a widening gap in economic prospects between those with a college degree and those without one. Well over 90 percent of working-age men in the 1960s held a job, with little difference in employment between those with or without a college degree. While the share of collegeeducated working-age men with a job has slipped slightly from more than 95 percent in 1967

to around 90 percent today, it has plunged for other groups, Powell said. In 1967, 90 percent of male high school graduates were working, but that figure has fallen to only about 80 percent today. In addition to educational discrepancies, Powell said economic resources differ markedly by race, education, occupation and geography. He said it was “crucial” to address these concerns. “Sound public policies can support families and businesses and help more Americans reach and remain in the middle class,” he said. Powell did not offer solutions to the problems he raised but said the Fed’s two-day research conference would examine these issues through various research papers.

When you inherit an IRA Few people leave instructions for their named beneficiaries BY TERRY SAVAGE

Tribune Content Agency

As America ages, it’s likely that more people will inherit substantial individual retirement accounts. If you inherit one, what you do next will make a big difference in your own financial future. Yet few people leave instructions for their named beneficiaries about the best course of action. Fortunately, there are financial planners who are trained IRA experts, taught by the IRA guru Ed Slott. At Slott’s website, IRAHelp.com, you can search for one of Slott’s “elite IRA advisers,” like certified financial planner Tony Pondel (TPondel.com) in Skokie, Illinois. He recently helped one of my readers avoid a substantial penalty by informing him of the need to take a required minimum distribution from an inherited IRA. There is such complexity around the rules for inherited IRAs., depending on whether the beneficiary is a spouse or another person, and depending on whether the decedent’s IRA was

a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. So, here’s a look at your options when you become a beneficiary. Before any action is taken, the custodian of the IRA must be presented with the appropriate proof of death of the owner. That allows the custodian to re-title the account as an “inherited IRA” with the name of the decedent and date of death in the title, as well as the name of the beneficiary. If you are an IRA beneficiary, the first rule is: Don’t act too quickly. There are some options that can stretch out tax-deferred growth of your IRA for many years. The second rule is: When you take over an inherited IRA, make sure that you name a beneficiary for it, then carefully consider the impact of your choices. Unless you absolutely need the money right now, the best choice is always to keep the money in an IRA growing tax-deferred (or tax free if a Roth) as long as possible — subject to the rules that require eventual withdrawals (even from an inherited Roth IRA). If you withdraw immediately, taxes are due in that year, except in the case of a Roth. Also, important: There is no 60-day rollover allowed for non-spouses inheriting an IRA. So if you want to move to a new

spouse can withdraw money before age 59½ without penalty.

Non-spousal beneficiaries

TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Choosing a younger beneficiary to inherit your IRA is a way to maximize its tax-deferred growth. custodian or are a spouse who is allowed to roll the inherited IRA into your own, don’t take a check. Instead, ask for a direct custodian-to-custodian rollover.

Spousal beneficiaries If a spousal beneficiary wants to keep the money growing in the inherited IRA, she must start taking RMDs the year after the original owner’s death, based on her life expectancy. However, if the decedent had already started taking RMDs, the surviving spousal beneficiary must continue taking

RMDs but based on her life expectancy. Make sure your custodian uses the appropriate tables. If she rolls the inherited IRA into her own IRA, she can wait until she reaches age 70½ to start taking RMDs over her own life expectancy. With a spousal IRA, the distributions from a traditional inherited IRA are taxable to the beneficiary as ordinary income. If the original IRA was a Roth, held at least five years, the withdrawals are tax free. One benefit of keeping an inherited IRA: A young surviving

If the beneficiary is not the spouse, the IRA must remain an inherited IRA. The non-spousal beneficiary must start taking RMDs by December 31 of the first year after the account owner’s death, based on the beneficiary’s life expectancy. The exception: If the decedent has already started RMDs, they must continue at the same pace. Note: An inherited Roth also has RMDs, even though there was no RMD required by the original owner. If the IRA was a traditional IRA, the distributions are taxable to the beneficiary as ordinary income. If it was a Roth, the distributions will be tax free — if the decedent had owned the account for five years. Bottom line: Keeping an inherited IRA growing could benefit you far more in the long run than taking the money out now. And that’s The Savage Truth.

out of a potential bidding war with the company to buy Anadarko. Energy companies also fell with the price of oil, as benchmark U.S. crude dropped 0.7 percent to settle at $61.70 per barrel. Brent crude, the international standard, closed essentially flat at $70.39 per barrel. CenturyLink skidded 5 percent after the communications provider reported weaker revenue for the latest quarter than analysts expected. Investors bid up shares in Tapestry after the maker of Kate Spade and Coach handbags beat first quarter profit forecasts and announced a $1 billion stock buyback plan. The stock vaulted 8.5 percent, the biggest gainer in the S&P 500. The trade war between Washington and Beijing is nothing new. The U.S. and China have already raised

tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of each other’s goods in their dispute over U.S. complaints about Beijing’s industrial and technology policies and a perennial U.S. deficit in trade with China. But earlier this year, investors were growing increasingly confident that the two sides would eventually find a deal on trade. That helped to calm markets following a tumultuous end to 2018, and the S&P 500 rallied back to a record despite the trade dispute. A more patient Federal Reserve, which said it may not raise interest rates at all this year, also helped to clear worries about a possible recession, and the S&P 500 vaulted 17.5 percent higher in the first four months of the year. But the calm shattered earlier this week after the United States set the Friday deadline for adding more tariffs. “We need to be prepared for continuing uncertainty in the trade war,” said Kris-

tina Hooper, chief global market strategist at Invesco. Investors prematurely priced a resolution into the markets, she said, and now it’s likely the additional tariffs will be applied. She said investors still want to believe that a positive resolution is possible and any progress in the negotiations now could “create something of a rally or certainly help stabilize stocks.” In other commodities trading Thursday, wholesale gasoline ended little changed at $1.98 per gallon.

If you wait until your 50s to plan your retirement, chances are you won’t be able to maintain your current lifestyle.

Is retirement sneaking up? Most in U.S. aren’t prepared Many Americans have no safety net, won’t be able to maintain standard of living; some mistakes avoidable BY ELLIOT RAPHAELSON

Tribune Content Agency

Research shows that a significant percentage of future retirees will not have sufficient income in retirement to maintain their current standard of living. According to a Fidelity study, 82 percent of Americans don’t have a retirement plan in place. According to Bloomberg, half of older Americans have no money saved in retirement accounts. The majority of workers in corporate America no longer have a definedbenefit pension plan. Employers for years have been phasing out these pensions in favor 401(k) plans, which put the burden primarily on employees to contribute to these plans. Unfortunately, many employees either choose not to contribute to a 401(k) or they contribute too little in order to receive the maximum corporate match. There are other reasons why future retirees will find it difficult to maintain their standard of living in retirement. The Social Security trust fund will face shortfalls by 2035, according to current government estimates. There will be fewer workers paying into Social Security and more people retiring and claiming benefits. Congress will be forced either to reduce benefits or to raise taxes; either alternative will make it difficult for future retirees. Although the unemployment rate is low, many of the employed are working part time and accordingly are not earning maximum credits for retirement. In addition, wages for many workers have not kept pace with inflation, making it

difficult to contribute toward their retirement. A common mistake among those who are contributing to their retirement plans is that they are being too conservative in their selection of investment alternatives. Because the stock market has been volatile recently, many retirement savers have reduced their allocation of common stock investments. From a long-term perspective, this is a mistake. The average annual stock market return over the long term has been 10 percent, 7 percent after adjusting for inflation. Returns for other forms of investment have been much lower. Accordingly, those who are concerned about growth in their portfolios, especially those who are 10 years or more away from retirement, should have a significant portion of their assets invested in common stocks. I believe most investors should be using diversified index funds with low annual fees. Another mistake is not making regular contributions to retirement accounts. Investors with IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement accounts have the benefit of tax-deferred growth. From a long-term perspective, steady, regular investment in retirement accounts is much more beneficial than nonrecurring investments in non-retirement accounts. Too many people also fail to take advantage of health savings accounts. To be eligible for an HSA, you must be covered by high-deductible health insurance, and more and more Americans are. HSAs have many tax advantages. Contributions

are tax-deductible, and earnings are tax-deferred. In addition, you are not required to withdraw funds in your HSA each year. You can roll the funds over from year to year, continuing your tax deferral. Even in retirement, you can maintain your tax deferral without penalty as long as you use the funds for medical expenses. There are other opportunities to retirement savers that are not used enough. For example, contributions can be made to retirement accounts for non-working spouses. Employees over 50 can make additional contributions to their IRAs, 401(k) s and other retirement accounts. Most individuals who wait until their 50s or later to establish a retirement plan will find that they don’t have sufficient time to save enough to ensure a retirement consistent with their current standard of living. Many employers don’t want to retain their employees until age 65, even if the employees wish to continue working until retirement. Employees should recognize that they might be forced to take early retirement even if they don’t want to. Employees who are forced to take early retirement and want to continue to work will find that the employment opportunities available will require salary reductions and lower benefits. The bottom line is that employees who haven’t established a retirement plan — and who are not making regular contributions to retirement plans — shouldn’t wait too long to establish a plan and make regular contributions to their retirement accounts.

Co-founder wants Facebook broken up Lawmakers urge action; Zuckerberg instead suggests internet regulation BY TAYLOR TELFORD

Washington Post

Chris Hughes, a cofounder of Facebook, is calling for the breakup of the social media juggernaut, citing the threat of the platform’s unchecked power and that of founder Mark Zuckerberg. In an op-ed published Thursday in The New York Times, Hughes, who helped form Facebook in a Harvard dorm, joined the growing chorus of lawmakers and advocates demanding the U.S. government rein in Facebook. Despite its myriad scandals — Russian propagandists exploiting the platform to spread misinformation and sway U.S. elections, the sharing of millions of users’ personal data with the political data firm Cambridge Analytica and companies like Amazon, Microsoft and Netflix — Facebook’s reach continues to grow. “For too long, lawmakers have marveled at Facebook’s explosive growth and overlooked their responsibility to ensure Americans are protected and markets are competitive,” Hughes wrote. “It is time to break up Facebook.” Facebook rejected this argument in a statement Thursday afternoon, suggesting that regulation of the internet — as Zuckerberg called for in a March op-ed published in The Washington Post — was the only thing that would bring real accountability. “Facebook accepts that with success comes accountability. But you don’t enforce accountability by calling for the breakup of a successful American company,” Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs and communications, said in a statement. “Accountability of tech companies can only be achieved through the painstaking introduction of new rules for the Internet.” Hughes’ calls come as

Facebook faces yet another controversy after an Associated Press investigation revealed that the platform automatically generates videos and pages that elevate extremist groups. The op-ed painted a stark portrait of Facebook’s dominance: The company is worth half a trillion dollars and its products are regularly used by billions of people. By Hughes’ estimates, Facebook commands “more than 80 percent of the world’s social networking revenue.” Another major social networking platform hasn’t been founded since 2011,and despite the movements like #deleteFacebook, it’s almost impossible to avoid, with many people eschewing the core platform in favor of Instagram or WhatsApp, not realizing they are Facebook subsidiaries. The apparent avalanche of disasters hasn’t dented Facebook’s finances; its earnings per share increased 40% last year, despite a torrent of public failures. “Because Facebook so dominates social networking, it faces no market-based accountability,” Hughes wrote. “This means that every time Facebook messes up, we repeat an exhausting pattern: first outrage, then disappointment, and finally, resignation.” No aspect of Facebook is more troubling than Zuckerberg’s total authority, Hughes wrote, calling it “unprecedented and unAmerican.” Zuckerberg controls 60 percent of the company’s voting shares and has ultimate oversight over Facebook’s algorithms, its privacy settings and community guidelines. He has the money and power to copy, buy or squash his competitors. While Hughes defended Zuckerberg as a “good, kind person,” he cast him as a man hellbent on domina-

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies in April 2018 before a House Energy and Commerce hearing in Washington. Facebook’s co-founder, Chris Hughes, has suggested the tech giant has grown too large and should be broken up. tion, even when it imperils the American public and democracy. “I’m angry that his focus on growth led him to sacrifice security and civility for clicks,” Hughes wrote. Facebook’s monopoly is stifling innovation and economic growth, Hughes argued, citing the 20thcentury breakups of Standard Oil and AT&T by the

Department of Justice as examples of effective government intervention in the past. The shift toward business-friendly policy over the decades has eroded antitrust enforcement, Hughes wrote, at the expense of entrepreneurship, productivity and consumer health. Hughes wants the government to correct the

FTC’s “biggest mistake” by forcing Instagram and WhatsApp to split from Facebook and become competitors once again. Hughes also wants the government to create an agency to monitor tech companies to ensure healthy regulation. Zuckerberg himself has called for regulation. “Lawmakers often tell me we have too much power

over speech, and frankly I agree,” Zuckerberg wrote in a March op-ed, also citing privacy, data protection and election integrity as other areas in need of government oversight. Hughes argues Zuckerberg is only interested in regulation that is “friendly” to Facebook’s interests. Legislators on both sides of the aisle have made a case for federal intervention with Facebook. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has made the breakup of American tech giants a pillar of her presidential campaign.This week, two senators urged the FTC to go beyond its expected $5 billion fine against Facebook for its privacy practices, calling for tough punishments and accountability measures. “The public is rightly asking whether Facebook is too big to be held accountable,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., wrote in a letter to FTC Chairman Joseph Simmons. “The FTC must set a resounding precedent that is heard by Facebook and any other tech company that disregards the law in a rapacious quest for growth.”

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

On one of their rare off nights at home when they didn’t have to be together on the field, a handful of the Cardinals got together anyway Wednesday night at a nearby joint to entertain each other in a karaoke room. Dexter Fowler and his wife shared video on social media of Fowler and Adam Wainwright singing a duet, Kolten Wong rapping, and Yadier Molina two-stepping. The team that sings together strings swings together, evidently. A day after their open-mic night, the hits just kept on coming. The Cardinals rattled Pittsburgh for 11 runs on eight hits before the end of the fourth inning and went on to end their recent meandering with a 17-4 victory Thursday at Busch Stadium. The

When Molina came a few yards shy of a grand slam he did so with his third hit of the game. It was the fourth inning. Fowler, the apparent karaoke organizerin-chief, doubled home two runs in the second and had three RBIs by the end of the third. Every spot in the order had reached base safely by the end of the fourth inning except for the pitcher’s.

You remember them. They are a little longer in the tooth now. They sport a few more battle wounds. But the bite of San Jose’s hockey team is still as fierce as that scar from 2016 is fresh, and the Sharks’ hunger is at an all-time high. If the Blues are going to reach a Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1970, they will need to beat the team that turned them into chum the last time they swam in waters this deep.

Unable to bring the team to their living room, the Fowlers found a way to bring their living room to the team by hosting a karaoke party Wednesday to see how many Cardinals can carry a tune. On one of their rare off nights at home when they didn’t have to work together, a group of Cardinals got together at a St. Louis-area joint to see a Dexter Fowler and Adam Wainwright duet, Marcell Ozuna’s take on Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Yadier Molina’s two-step. Evidently, a team that sings together strings swings together. The day after their open-mic night, the hits just kept on coming.

A chorus of 16 hits, six doubles, and eight walks gave the Cardinals their most runs scored of the season and the most scored without a single home run in more than a decade. To blast a weeklong dirge littered with errors and shutouts, the Cardinals didn’t need pop stars, just the classics. They sent nine batters to plate in the second inning against Bucs starter Joe Musgrove, 10 more in the fourth, and nine again in the sixth. Ozuna joined the jam session and had three at-bats with the bases Please see CARDINALS, Page C5

DIGEST Arizona signs deal with top NFL pick Murray The Arizona Cardinals have signed Kyler Murray in time for their rookie minicamp. Arizona signed the No. 1 overall draft pick to a four-year contract Thursday worth about $35 million with a team option for a fifth. It includes a signing bonus of more than $23 million. Murray will take the field for the first time Friday, when the Cardinals open their rookie minicamp. Howard gets big deal with Dolphins: Cornerback Xavien Howard agreed to terms on a $76.5 million, five-year extension with the Miami Dolphins, the most lucrative deal ever for an NFL cornerback. The contract includes $46 million guaranteed, and ensures Howard will be a cornerstone in the team’s rebuilding effort under new coach Brian Flores. Jaguars’ Smith leaving team: Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith, the team’s leading tackler the past two seasons and a Pro Bowl selection in 2017, is stepping away from football to “give this time back to myself, my family & my health.” Other NFL news: Washington signed first-round pick quarterback Dwyane Haskins and seven other members of its rookie class. ... Tennessee agreed to terms with outside linebacker D’Andre Walker and linebacker David Long, the first of its six draft picks to get contracts. ... Buffalo signed seven of its eight draft picks, including first-round selection defensive tackle Ed Oliver. ... Veteran offensive lineman Jordan Mills signed a $3 million, one-year contract with Miami. Federer advances in Madrid: Roger Federer in the match. An aggressive forehand two points later allowed him to save a second match point, and he went on to beat Gael Monfils 6-0, 4-6, 7-6 (3) in the third round of the Madrid Open on Thursday. Top-ranked Novak Djokovic, second-seeded Rafael Nadal and defending champion Alexander Zverev also advanced to the last eight on Thursday. In the women’s quarterfinals, top-ranked Naomi Osaka lost 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 to Belinda Bencic, falling to the Swiss for the second time this season. Bencic will now face two-time Madrid champion Simona Halep, the former No. 1 who defeated Ashleigh Barty 7-5, 7-5. American Sloane Stephens got past Petra Martic in two sets and will face Kiki Bertens, who upset defending champion Petra Kvitova 6-2, 6-3 in a rematch of last year’s final. Wire services

H

ockey’s travelin’ man finally is staying put for a few days after an epic, grueling trek of NHL playoff broadcasting assignments. Pierre McGuire, NBC Sports Group’s “Inside the Glass” commentator, will be reporting from ice level for the Blues-Sharks Western Conference finals series that starts Saturday in San Jose, Calif. (7 p.m., KSDK, Channel 5). That comes after he just completed a stretch of broadcasting games on 26 of 30 days, a span that began April 10 and ended Wednesday. It included working on all seven telecasts of both the Blues’ and Stars’ second-round series. McGuire logged an estimated 25,471 air miles during the marathon in which he had one stretch of working 15 consecutive days, in which he never had consecutive games in the same city. His schedule eases a bit as the playoffs wind down, now focusing on the Blues-Sharks series in which Kenny Albert has the play-by-play and Mike Milbury is the booth commentator. McGuire was in San Jose for Game 7 of the Sharks-Colorado series Wednesday and can stay there until Tuesday, a travel day after the first two games of the Western Conference finals are played there. He has a game plan to make it through the grinding stretch, an approach he has honed after having similar schedules previously. “Its not easy but the most important thing is you’ve got to hydrate, drink a lot of water, you’ve got to eat properly — lots of green vegetables,” he said Thursday. “For me, the last (few) weeks I’ve basically been working on 3½ or 4 hours of sleep a night. If you can’t sleep on a plane, it’s a problem. I’m fortunate, I can sleep on a plane. But the biggest thing is trying to get to the gym as much as possible when you get to the next city and sweat the plane ride out of you.” He said he then usually goes to to arena 3½-4 hours before the game starts. “You get a chance to get into the environment and get focused,” he said. “That really helps a lot.” Fox’s Joe Buck can relate to McGuire’s ironman schedule. Buck had what is believed to be an unmatched stretch for a network play-by-play announcer last October when he called 15 games in 18 days from six cities , bouncing between MLB postseason contests and NFL regular-

NBC SPORTS

NBC-TV hockey analyst Pierre McGuire brings an up-close perspective to broadcasts by working between the teams’ benches. In this April 14, 2019, photo, he broadcasts an NHL game between the Islanders and the Penguins. season games five times. “His schedule blows mine away,” said Buck, a huge Blues fan who said he was screaming wildly at Game 7 of the just-completed Dallas series. “There’s end-toend action and he’s right there in the middle of it. He has no space to work — I’m up in a booth and can spread out. “I really enjoy listening to him. I’m just blown away, how he can keep all those players straight. Everything is so fast, and he’s down there at ice level.” But McGuire, 57, wasn’t there Thursday, the first day he didn’t have a game or travel in 16 days. “Today was a really good feeling in terms of not having to go to the airport,” he said. But there was a caveat. He said he got up at 5 a.m. local time to do radio shows on East Coast, went back to bed for an hour before he took a walk and did another radio show before going to a gym. Later he was planning to watch the telecast of the opener of the Eastern Conference finals then hoped for a rare good night’s sleep. “Tonight will be one of the better nights for sure,” he said. “If my pillow tries to fight me, I’m going to win.”

PUCK POSITION Being stationed between the teams’ benches allows McGuire immediate access to what the reactions and transpirings are as they happen, as does Darren Pang for Blues telecasts on Fox Sports Midwest. But the positioning also can be dangerous, as many viewers saw in now-famous clip from a game in February in which a puck whizzed by McGuire’s face — seemingly missing by less than an inch. But he said he hasn’t considered wearing a helmet because of the close call. “Part of what makes that position so special, which was the vi-

sion of (executive producer) Sam Flood, is the ability to hear as much as you can on both benches, to hear as much as you can of what goes on on the ice and then try to relay the energy of what happens at ice level to people watching back home,” McGuire said. “I think it has helped stimulate the broadcast, and people I think have appreciated it as the position has evolved. “If you were to put a helmet on, especially with a mask, you wouldn’t be nearly as able to hear a lot of what you hear now and that would take away from the value of the position.”

LOOKING AHEAD McGuire has solid insight into the Blues-Sharks series, having seen in person all of both team’s games in the previous round. He predicts the matchup is “probably going to be long, it’s going to be grinding. “I think it’s going to be really hard hitting, extremely quick and there’s going to be a lot of board play,” he said. “If you don’t win battles along the boards, you don’t win battles in the slot, you’re probably not going to win the series.” He said the matchup should be good for TV because of not only what happens on the ice but in the stands, where fans of both teams will be hoping for their first Stanley Cup winner. “The thing that’s really impressive is both fan bases,” McGuire said. “Both buildings are electrified because both fan bases see light at the end of the tunnel. They think they have a legitimate chance to win. I think that’s going to lead to some amazing moments. “We like good fan bases, lots of noise and really good hockey. I think we’ll get that with both teams.” Dan Caesar • 314-340-8175 @caesardan on Twitter dcaesar@post-dispatch.com

Peek into Blues’ radio booth for classic call BY DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

There is an excellent clip on the Blues’ website that takes fans behind the curtain in the team’s radio broadcast booth for the moments leading up to, including and immediately after Pat Maroon’s goal won Game 7 of the Dallas playoff series on Tuesday night First there is play-by-play broadcaster Chris Kerber’s scintillating call: “Thomas off the wall, shoots and it’s in! They score! It’s the St. Louisan, Pat Maroon! Bring out the Zamboni! Pat Maroon just put the city on his shoulders and he sends them to the conference finals! A 2-1 win in double overtime over the Dallas Stars!” The video next shows what happened in the booth, as Kerber highfives analyst Joey Vitale and others there, then gives hand signs to Vitale to stay silent while the crowd’s loud cheers fill the airwaves. After about 15 seconds he points to Vitale with the “go” signal. “Pat Maroon. On May 7, Game 7, he’s No. 7 and is the Towel Man,” Vitale says. “Pat Maroon, the hero. He grew up in Oakville and this is what he’s dreamt about ever since playing floor hockey in his garage.”

STL ROUTS DALLAS It was a thrilling, nail-biting second-round Stanley Cup playoff series between the Blues and Stars, going down to the second overtime of the winner-take-all seventh game Tuesday night. The Blues eked out the victory, 2-1, on a goal by Maroon. But there was nothing close about the television ratings for the game, or the series.

According to Nielsen, which tracks viewership, 16 percent of homes with a TV in the Gateway City tuned into the final game, while the rating in “Big D” was 5.2. For the series, St. Louis averaged a 12.0 rating. Dallas was at 3.8. Viewership in St. Louis for the decisive contest peaked during the first overtime, when the rating was 21.3 from 10:15-10:30 p.m. There were an estimated 377,000 viewers then. Evidently a significant number of fans went to bed after that, because the rating was 18.7 from 10:45-11 p.m. — when the game ended. The estimated number of viewers in that span was 337,000. Interestingly, the contest (on NBCSN) walloped the CardinalsPhillies telecast (on Fox Sports Midwest) when they overlapped for much of the night. The baseball game drew a 4.2 rating, the Cards’ worst for a prime-time game so far this season. It was hurt by the fact the Cards fell be-

hind 6-0 in the second inning en route to an 11-1 blowout loss. The St. Louis rating for the Blues-Stars series, 12.0, was better than the number generated in the market the last time the Blues were in the second round. The figure for the matchup with Nashville in 2017 was 9.2.

McCarthy shoots 63 for 1st-round lead

ROUNDUP Day takes lead in delayed Champions major Glen Day was 7 under through 16 holes to top the Regions Tradition leaderboard Thursday when bad weather halted the opening round of the first PGA Tour Champions major of the year. After a two-tee start to try to beat the weather, lightning stopped play just after noon when Day was aiming for his second straight long birdie putt on Greystone’s Founders Course in Birmingham, Ala. Tour officials announced more than four hours later that the first round would resume early Friday. Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez and David Toms were two strokes back. Jimenez played 17 holes, and Toms finished 13. Day made a third straight birdie on No. 16 and was lining up for a shot at another one when play was suspended. Day predicted that “the scores will go way low” before the tournament is over—weatherpermitting. “Now, if we want to call the tournament right now, I’m all for it,” he said, laughing. “I mean, we can call it now. But if we get in four rounds, there will be a lot of birdies made. Billy Andrade finished with a 4-under 68 after posting six birdies and a pair of bogeys. Twotime champion Bernhard Langer, winner of a record 10 senior major championships,was 3 under with one hole to play. Jordan leads British Masters: Matthew Jordan made the most of his late invitation to the British Masters by shooting 9-under 63 Thursday to take a two-stroke lead after the first round in Southport, England. Playing just his 12th event as a professional, the 23-year-old Jordan defied wet and chilly conditions at Hillside in northwest England to make nine birdies in a bogey-free round. Fellow Englishman Matt Wallace and Marcus Kinhult of Sweden were tied for second place. Jordan turned professional in September 2018 after a stellar amateur career which saw him reach fifth in the world rankings. He is from nearby Hoylake, a seaside town which is one of the British Open hosts. “I’ve known him for a long time, we all know what he’s capable of,” said Tommy Fleetwood after an opening 68.

DALLAS — Denny McCarthy has some loose connections to Jordan Spieth and Tony Romo, the Trinity Forest members in the local spotlight. The former University of Virginia player is on top of the leaderboard after one round at the Byron Nelson. McCarthy shot a careerlow 8-under 63 on Thursday, with 10 birdies over a 12-hole stretch after an early double bogey to take a onestroke lead over Tyler Duncan and Tom Hoge. Threetime major champion Brooks Koepka, the No. 3-ranked player in the world, was among nine players at 65. “Gives me the confidence that I know that I can shoot rounds like this,” McCarthy said. “I’ve kind of been looking for a round like this just to kind of get me going. I know I can be out here playing with the best and today kind of showed that.” McCarthy was part of the high school Class of 2011 that included three-time major champion Spieth and 2017 PGA Tour player of the year Justin Thomas. That impressive group also produced three consecutive

PGA rookies of the year: Daniel Berger (2015), Emiliano Grillo (2016) and Xander Schauffele (2017). All of those now mid-20 somethings have wins, except McCarthy, who is fully exempt on the PGA Tour this season for the first time after winning the Web.com Tour Championship last September. His best PGA Tour finish in his first 42 tournaments

was fourth last year in the Dominican Republic at an event opposite the WGCDell Technologies Match Play. McCarthy played his first two rounds at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club then with Romo, the CBS NFL analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback who missed the cut there in his only two previous PGA Tour starts. Romo, playing on a spon-

sor exemption as an amateur at home, had a 76 that included an opening birdie and a chip-in eagle from 66 feet at the 544-yard seventh hole. Those were his only subpar holes in a round with two double bogeys and four bogeys. “Couple of the tee shots really cost me just because they’re penal in those areas. You can’t miss them there,” Romo said. “Like I said, the separation between these guys is the ability to do it for long stretches, consistency.” Spieth had a 68 in the afternoon, when the wind picked up after mostly calm conditions for McCarthy and the rest of the morning starters at the links-style course inundated by heavy rain earlier in the week. “Given the tougher conditions this afternoon and then tomorrow morning, it’s just kind of about hanging around and trying to make something happen on the weekend,” Spieth said. McCarthy began his early round with three consecutive pars before a double bogey at the 437-yard fourth, when he had to take a penalty stroke after a wayward tee shot and eventually twoputted from 11 feet. He was still 2 over after another par at No. 5.

“(The double bogey) just kind of made me more calm after that,” McCarthy said. “I came out with the mindset I wanted to be aggressive and I wasn’t, and then after that double I kind of told myself, you know, just play really, really carefree and have fun with it.” A 9-foot birdie at the 415yard sixth was the first of five consecutive one-putt birdies, three of those under 6 feet. McCarthy needed only 22 putts, 10 on the back nine. His 10 birdies were three more than he had ever had in a tour round. “I put in some really nice sessions on the range the last couple of weeks and I didn’t come out hitting it like I wanted to,” he said.“It’s easy just to not make a committed swing, and it cost me a couple shots there. But once I was aware that I wasn’t in that aggressive mindset, kind of put me right back in and was able to get the round going.” All three of Koepka’s major wins have come since his last Nelson in 2017, when the tournament was still at the Four Seasons resort before moving south of downtown Dallas last year. He had never been on the front nine before Thursday, having practiced only on the back nine Tuesday before Wednesday’s pro-am was washed out. After four consecutive birdies in the middle of his round (at Nos. 17, 18, 1 and 2), Koepka finished with three birdies and two bogeys on the last five holes. His approach at No. 6 went over the green into a bunker for a bogey, and his missed the green with his approach at No. 9, his finishing hole. “Other than that, I struck the ball beautifully,” said Koepka, the two-time U.S. Open winner who next week will defend his PGA Championship title. “Hitting it good and putting it good, it doesn’t matter. Played a lot of golf courses where I really haven’t seen the golf course and gone to play. You’ve got a yardage book.”

AROUND THE MAJORS

Red Sox visit White House WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump honored the World Series champion Boston Red Sox — well, some of them — at the White House on Thursday, but made no mention of the controversy that shadowed the visit. The team’s manager,Alex Cora,did not attend the ceremony after citing his frustration with the administration’s response to a devastating hurricane in his native Puerto Rico. Nearly a dozen members of the team, all players of color, skipped the ceremony. The Red Sox repeatedly denied that there was any sort of racial divide caused by the White House visit, and there was no sign of discord during the rained-upon ceremony on the South Lawn.

Sticky situation for Mariners After looking into what appeared to be a substance under the bill of Mariners pitcher Yusei Kikuchi’s cap during Seattle’s 10-1 win over New York on Wednesday night,Yankees manager Aaron Boone is staying cool. Social media users spotted a greasy, brown spot on the Japanese rookie’s hat during the broadcast. Boone said his team looked at the tape and though he “had thoughts about it,” he wouldn’t make them public. BRIEFLY GIANTS: San Francisco has placed catcher Buster Posey on the seven-day concussion list after a foul ball hit his helmet on Sunday. Posey said he was hit in the fourth inning of the game against the Reds. He played in Tuesday’s game against Colorado. Posey also missed seven games because of a concussion in 2017. The Giants also announced that pitcher Drew Pomeranz went on the 10day injured list (shoulder). — Wire reports

STAT OF THE DAY

Cubs power past Marlins ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO — The Cubs stretched their winning streak to three games on Thursday, overpowering the Florida Marlins 4-1 with home runs by Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. The homers overshadowed another uneven performance by Yu Darvish, who allowed one hit and struck out seven but lasted only four innings because of six walks in a 97-pitch performance. The only hit allowed by Darvish was a single by Rosell Herrera in the fourth that scored Peter O’Brien. The Marlins stole four bases with Darvish on the mound. Left-hander Mike Montgomery, making his first appearance since coming off the injured list Wednesday, pitched five scoreless innings to earn the win. ANGELS 13, TIGERS 0: Albert Pujols highlighted a route of the host Tigers with his third-inning home run and 2,000th RBI. “To win games, you have to drive runs in,” Pujols said. “I know right now there’s a lot of geniuses that don’t want to give credit to RBIs.” The ball ended up in the hands of a fan, who would not give up the ball and the superstar didn’t have a problem with the decision. “We play this game for the fans, too, and if they want to keep it, I think they have the right,” Pujols insisted. “I just hope he can enjoy.” Luke Bard started for the Angels after a 53-minute rain delay and pitched one inning, allowing two hits. Felix Pena followed and threw seven scoreless innings, giving up just three hits. Tommy La Stella and Kole Calhoun also went deep for the Angels. REDS 3, A’S 0: Derek Dietrich continued his power surge with another home run, his fifth in six games, and visiting Cincinnati blanked Oakland to snap a 10-game interleague losing

streak. Tanner Roark and three relievers combined on a six-hitter. Eugenio Suárez also went deep and doubled twice for the Reds. ROCKIES 12, GIANTS 11: Nolan Arenado homered among his three hits and Chris Iannetta hit a goahead two-run double in the sixth inning to lead host Colorado over San Francisco. Arenado reached base five times, starting with his 10th home run. Ian Desmond and Mark Reynolds also homered on a cold day at Coors Field.

INDIANS 5, WHITE SOX 0: Carlos Carrasco held visiting Chicago to two hits, Jordan Luplow hit his first two home runs of the season,and Cleveland defeated Chicago in a game that was called after five innings following a rain delay of 2 hours, 34 minutes. Chicago right fielder Charlie Tilson slipped and fell on the wet grass in the fifth as he camped under a fly ball hit by Francisco Lindor that landed for an RBI double. The play capped a three-run inning and the game was stopped a few minutes later.

YANKEES 3, MARINERS 1: J.A. Happ and four relievers combined on a two-hitter, Cameron Maybin contributed with his bat and glove to help New York beat visiting Seattle. Maybin flared a two-out RBI double in the second and made a sliding catch on Ryon Healy’s fly to right to begin the seventh. Domingo Santana homered with two outs in the ninth inning for Seattle, which also lost second baseman Dee Gordon after being hit around the right wrist by a pitch from Happ.

AROUND THE MAJORS

Red Sox visit White House WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump honored the World Series champion Boston Red Sox — well, some of them — at the White House on Thursday, but made no mention of the controversy that shadowed the visit. The team’s manager,Alex Cora,did not attend the ceremony after citing his frustration with the administration’s response to a devastating hurricane in his native Puerto Rico. Nearly a dozen members of the team, all players of color, skipped the ceremony. The Red Sox repeatedly denied that there was any sort of racial divide caused by the White House visit, and there was no sign of discord during the rained-upon ceremony on the South Lawn.

Sticky situation for Mariners After looking into what appeared to be a substance under the bill of Mariners pitcher Yusei Kikuchi’s cap during Seattle’s 10-1 win over New York on Wednesday night,Yankees manager Aaron Boone is staying cool. Social media users spotted a greasy, brown spot on the Japanese rookie’s hat during the broadcast. Boone said his team looked at the tape and though he “had thoughts about it,” he wouldn’t make them public. BRIEFLY GIANTS: San Francisco has placed catcher Buster Posey on the seven-day concussion list after a foul ball hit his helmet on Sunday. Posey said he was hit in the fourth inning of the game against the Reds. He played in Tuesday’s game against Colorado. Posey also missed seven games because of a concussion in 2017. The Giants also announced that pitcher Drew Pomeranz went on the 10day injured list (shoulder). — Wire reports

Cubs power past Marlins ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO — Kris Bryant understands it’s only May, with 127 games left in the regular season. Still, compared with the last time the Cubs faced the National League Central rival Brewers nearly five weeks ago, Bryant feels a lot better about his team’s prospects. “It’s still way early in the season, but we’re playing our best baseball of the whole year,” Bryant said Thursday after the Cubs won for the 10th time in 11 games, a 4-1 victory over the Marlins that extended their winning streak to three. “That’s always good when you’re going into a series against a team that’s going to give us tough games from here on out.” Since losing two of three to the Brewers on April 5-7 to fall to 2-7, the Cubs have improved in virtually all facets while winning 20 of 26. That includes the production of Bryant — who hit his fourth home run in five games in the first inning — and Anthony Rizzo, who provided insurance with a two-run homer in the fifth. Rizzo’s blast gave lefthander Mike Montgomery a cushion after Yu Darvish walked six and was pulled after four innings and 97 pitches. Rizzo became the ninth player to hit 200 home runs for the Cubs, and his six homers in his last 11 games have paralleled the team’s recent success. “To have them play as good as they are is why we’re winning,” Montgomery said of Rizzo and Bryant. Montgomery earned the victory with five scoreless innings in his first appearance after spending nearly five weeks on the injured list because of a left lat strain. His effectiveness allowed manager Joe Maddon to rest a bullpen that should be at full strength for the Brewers series Friday through Sunday at Wrigley Field. ANGELS 13, TIGERS 0: Albert Pujols highlighted a route of the host Tigers with his third-inning home run and 2,000th RBI.

2,000

Angels slugger Albert Pujols became the third player to reach 2,000 career RBIs on Thursday. The three-time MVP joined Hank Aaron (2,297) and Alex Rodriguez (2,086) as the only players to reach the milestone since 1920. — Associated Press

“To win games, you have to drive runs in,” Pujols said. “I know right now there’s a lot of geniuses that don’t want to give credit to RBIs.” The ball ended up in the hands of a fan, who would not give up the ball and the superstar didn’t have a problem with the decision. “We play this game for the fans, too, and if they want to keep it, I think they have the right,” Pujols insisted. “I just hope he can enjoy.” ROCKIES 12, GIANTS 11: Nolan Arenado homered among his three hits and Chris Iannetta hit a goahead two-run double in the sixth inning to lead host Colorado over San Francisco. Arenado reached base five times, starting with his 10th home run. Ian Desmond and Mark Reynolds also homered on a cold day at Coors Field.

REDS 3, A’S 0: Derek Dietrich continued his power surge with another home run, his fifth in six games, and visiting Cincinnati blanked Oakland to snap a 10-game interleague losing streak. Tanner Roark and three relievers combined on a six-hitter.

homered with two outs in the ninth inning for Seattle, which also lost second baseman Dee Gordon after being hit around the right wrist by a pitch from Happ. ASTROS 4, RANGERS 2: Josh Reddick hit the tiebreaking RBI single and preserved host Houston’s lead with a leaping grab over the wall in right field, and Wade Miley struck out seven in six solid innings against Texas. Reddick’s single with two outs in the sixth scored Yuli Gurriel and gave the Astros a 3-2 lead.

INDIANS 5, WHITE SOX 0: Carlos Carrasco held visiting Chicago to two hits, Jordan Luplow hit his first two home runs of the season, and Cleveland defeated Chicago in a game that was called after five innings following a rain delay of 2 hours, 34 minutes.

Martinez may be multi-inning man Pitcher is expected back in the majors in 10 to 14 days BY DERRICK GOOLD

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The decision and debut could come within two weeks, and already the Cardinals have an idea in mind for how Carlos Martinez, recast as a reliever, could utilize a starter’s repertoire in an aggressive, hybrid role the team has wanted to have in the bullpen on speeddial. The 100-inning reliever has faded from the game, but in an era of shrinking starts and overpopulated bullpens there has become a place for multi-inning and elastic relievers. This past season, two full-time relievers pitched at least 90 innings, three others, including Milwaukee’s lefty Josh Hader, threw 80 innings. The Cardinals haven’t had a reliever log that many innings since 2014. While Martinez will be limited by the calendar, the Cardinals don’t expect him to be by traditional bullpen jobs. “I could envision that,” Shildt said when asked about the 100-inning-type reliever. “He could be on (pace) for a regular season of 100 innings out of the bullpen – would not surprise me. If you get multiple effective and efficient innings out of your bullpen and consistently out of guys – that has a ton of value. It can impact your starts. It can impact the rest of the bullpen. It can allow you to potentially carry maybe seven vs. eight (relievers), which puts you on an extra position player. “It has a lot of value to it.” Martinez could be ready to return the majors within 10 to 14 days, Shildt said. He’s scheduled to throw again Friday for Class AAA Memphis, and his schedule from there remains “fluid,” Shildt explained. Working exclusively as a reliever, the Cardinals would like to see Martinez appear in back-to-back games, but it’s not a requirement, the manager added. They will like him to expand to multipleinning appearances. Martinez completed his second rehab inning Wednesday afternoon with a scoreless inning for the Redbirds. He walked two, struck out one, and completed the inning on 23 pitches. Shildt smiled as he said “for you velocity fiends” out there, Martinez threw 95 mph to 98 mph, and his “out pitch” was his slider. The velocity shows a jump from his first minor-league appearance since returning from shoulder trouble.

SHILDT: ‘COULD HAVE BEEN PATIENT’ WITH REYES That push that Reyes felt to win a spot on the opening day roster the Cardinals shared, and Shildt suggested Thursday maybe that was a mistake. The manager exchanged text messages with the rookie righthander Thursday about his work in Jupiter, Fla., while recovering from a fracture in his left hand. From behind a protective L-screen – Reyes is not cleared to catch a ball – the prospect has been throwing lengthy simulated games, growing his pitch count past 60 pitches toward 80 pitches. The setting has become something of an unplanned laboratory and it’s allowed Reyes, Shildt said, to tinker with his off-speed pitches. Reyes has returned to his original grip on his changeup, and with-

out the burden of a scoreboard he’s able to throw it and test it often. Shildt explained that after missing two years of baseball to recover from elbow and shoulder surgeries, Reyes probably needed more work like this, rather than a race to the majors. “He didn’t need this kind of break for it to happen, but he needed – as it turns out – a longer period of time. I’ll take responsibility for that,” Shildt said. “To get his feel back and get his legs back under him and feel comfortable – that’s a reasonable thing for missing two years. It’s hard to ignore that kind of special arm and that kind of talent and all the intangibles that Alex has that comes along with it. He had a representative enough spring training. But clearly we could have been more patient. I could have been more patient with him.”

KEYSTONE COMMUNICATION With more and more frequent defensive shifts this season, there has been an increased onus has been on what Shildt called “pre-pitch communication” and that requires some quarterbacking from shortstop Paul DeJong. The Cardinals’ third-year starter at the position – who has learned the position essentially in the majors – pointed to recent ragged defensive play and how communication would have solved at least one misplay. DeJong and second baseman Kolten Wong converged on a groundball only to sense each other’s approach, stop, and then stare together as the ball slipped by. “It’s a challenge for me to be a little more vocal – before it happens,” DeJong said. “Which means I have to anticipate a little better. I’m trying to be more aggressive going after balls I think I can catch. A little adjustment period for us. We’ll work the kinks out.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

Busch bests

From C1

The Cardinals had one of their best-ever offensive showings at their current home:

least three times by the end of the sixth. On their way to a season-high jam session, the Cardinals had an outpouring of offense unlike any they had since those heady days of April. It cracked a dry spell that that had produced one run in the previous 21 innings – emphatically. And all 17 runs scored without a home run. Six doubles and eight walks were potent enough. That gave Michael Wacha (3-0) ample padding for the four runs he allowed in 5 2/3 innings. The Pirates pecked away at Wacha and Gregory Polanco laced him for three extrabase hits, but when the Cardinals opened up a 5-2 lead for him, he pitched his only perfect inning. The Cardinals had been shut out twice in the previous six games and lost six of seven as Pittsburgh arrived for a four-game set this weekend. How they lost was as unsteadying as the losses. Manager Mike Shildt, borrowing a refrain from spring training, said one night the Cardinals “beat ourselves.” The offense’s volume turned down, and the mistakes in the field hit a crescendo. All four spots in the infield committed at least one error in the first three games of this home stand. They had lost the rhythm that had, only a week earlier, given them the best record in the Na-

tional League. “Now we have a chance to make a statement in the division,” shortstop Paul DeJong said, before pivoting to address that first they had to reclaim momentum. “Winning two early is going to help us win the next two.” DeJong, true to his position, was in the middle of the turnaround. He walked and scored twice. In the fifth inning he dove to his left to steal a base hit from Josh Bell, and in the sixth inning, he ranged into left field and then foul territory to get one of Wacha’s final outs. In the sixth, as the Cardinals piled on, DeJong scored from first base on Marcell Ozuna’s bases-clearing double. DeJong’s multi-faceted game – at the plate, in the field, and on the bases – personified how the Cardinals had pieced

their game back together after a fractured week. They were back, harmonizing. So many of Thursday’s singers were part of the chorus. According to video shared on Dexter and Aliya Fowler’s Instagram pages, Molina, who runs a record label and has a home studio for recording artists, sang Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried.” The song, partially about “a pair of jeans that fit just right,” works its way through a list of comforts, just as Molina has continued working his way up the list of Cardinals. His double to start the Cardinals’ scoring was the 366th of his career, moving him head of Enos Slaughter and into sixth alltime for the franchise. Molina followed that with a single and a run in the third inning, and in the fourth in he tagged a ball off the right-center wall. The bases were loaded with one out so the pause on the fly ball is all that kept Molina from three RBIs. With their spouses watching, Fowler and pitcher Adam Wainwright, a noted karaoke enthusiast, sang a duet of “Shallows” from “A Star in Born.” Fowler followed Molina’s second-inning double with a double down the right-field line that scored two and put the Cardinals’ ahead 3-0. When Molina found himself at first with a 380-foot RBI single, Fowler chopped a grounder that threaded past Bell for an error and allowed two runs to score. The game was mostly encores from there.

Ozuna, who took a turn on the mic Wednesday night, walked and scored in his first two at-bats. He got a crack with the bases loaded in the fourth and struck out. Given a second chance with the bases loaded in the sixth, he cleared them with a double to right-center. Ozuna added a fourth RBI with a bases-loaded groundout in the eighth. Wong, who sang a little “beep beep” and “toot toot” at karaoke night, had two doubles to slip loose from a slump that had gripped him as the team also scuffled. Two other Cardinals looking to shake the chill of their averages, Paul Goldschmidt and Matt Carpenter, joined the band as well. Carpenter reached base four times and singled in his each of his final two atbats. Goldschmidt had an RBI single in the second inning and finished the game with three hits, including a double, and four times on base. Not one Cardinal who started the game Thursday left it without getting a hit and scoring a run. Everyone got a turn. Shildt did not attend karaoke, but he did smile about it. “This is a team that is close,” he said. “Likes to play together. Likes to be together.” Especially when they all remember the tune.

loaded and four RBIs. The first six batters in the Cardinals’ order all reached base safely at least three times each. Paul Goldschmidt ended a two-week stretch without an RBI, strumming three hits – one to each part of the outfield. Then he delivered the hook. “If we want to accomplish our goals that we want to accomplish and get into the postseason, you’re going to have to do it consistently every night,” Goldschmidt said. “For the most part we’ve done that. It’s one win. We could win 1-0 or score big. Our mindset is to try and do it every day. The team that is the most consistent throughout the year is probably going to win the most games.” The Cardinals had been blanked twice in the previous six games and lost six of their previous seven as Pittsburgh arrived for a four-game set. How they lost was as unsteadying as the losses. Manager Mike Shildt, playing off a refrain from spring training train, said one night the Cardinals “beat ourselves.” The offense’s volume turned down, the mistakes in the field reached a crescendo. All four positions in the infield committed at least an error in the first three games of the home stand. One to trip to Chicago, and the Cardinals came back without any of the rhythm that had won them the best record in the National League. They lacked timely hits, baserunners, routine plays, and all that jazz. Still, shortstop Paul DeJong stood at his locker early Thursday and said with the Pirates in town, “Now we have a chance to make a statement in the division. Winning

two early is going to help us win the next two.” But first, some music to set the mood. Fowler, the karaoke organizer-in-chief, and his wife Aliya have a karaoke machine at their Las Vegas home and will share on social media their sing-a-longs. They had wanted to host a team party before and Aliya organized the wives to make it happen Wednesday night. Many Cardinals and their significant others attended. Many even sang. Ozuna did his go-to, “Simple Man” by Skynyrd, with backup vocals from Wainwright. Kolten Wong got his “beep beep” and “toot toot” going. Cagey karaoke vet Luke Gregerson drew raves for his Joe Cocker takes. Molina likes his “chicken fried” and “a pair of jean that fits just right” with his karaoke standard by the Zac Brown Band. So much of this was captured and shared on social media, including Fowler and Wainwright, with their spouses watching, belting out “Shallows,” the torch song from “A Star is Born.” “You saw that?” said Wainwright, a karaoke aficionado who hosts a sing-off for charity every winter. “Any time you can get together with the team and have a moment like that, just let loose a little bit, it’s going to help put the stress of work behind you. That’s why they have karaoke bars, right?” So many of Wednesday’s crooners were Thursday’s contributors. Molina doubled home the Cardinals’ first run and moved ahead of Enos Slaughter for seventh alltime with 366 doubles for the Cardinals. In the fourth, Molina nearly had the showstopper when his 380-foot RBI single came yards shy of a grand slam. Fowler put the Cardinals ahead with a two-run double in the second, had three RBIs by the end of the third, and squeaked a grounder by Josh

Bell that allowed two more runs to score. The musical numbers continued. Kolten Wong rapped two doubles. Ozuna walked twice and scored twice before getting four RBIs in his final two swings. Matt Carpenter reached base four times, and he and Goldschmidt combined to go five-fornine with five runs. All of it carried Michael Wacha (3-0) to an early lead that he held with a perfect fourth and 5 2/3 innings. Of the Cardinals’ 41 at-bats, 25 came with a runner in scoring position. They hadn’t had that many since the heat was on in 1985. True to his position, DeJong was in the middle of everything with a diving play to his left, a ranging play to his right, two walks, and he scored from first on Ozuna’s bases-clearing double in the sixth. For the first time in at least a week, the Cardinals’ play had harmony. “We talk about homers – they’re nice, we’ll take them,” Shildt said. “When we’re at our best, we’re doing damage in a lot of different ways and using all of our skills and playing the game based on situations.” And wearing out third-base coach Ron “Pop” Warner. “Pop is ready to rock,” Shildt assured. Not Shildt, not yet. The manager admitted after Wednesday’s game that he has never been out for karaoke, doesn’t have a go-to song, wouldn’t even know where to start. Fowler, karaoke devotee, said he’s ready to help. Because if it’s going to strike up the band for 17 runs, 16 hits … What else do they do for an encore? “We’re going to have to do it again,” Fowler said. “Round 2.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

Blues From C1

only a handful of their players have ever been before — hockey’s Final Four. Ryan O’Reilly and Tyler Bozak had never even made it to the second round before this season. Schenn had made it to Round 2, but never Round 3. Vince Dunn had never been in the NHL playoffs. Last year at this time, Robert Thomas was leading the Hamilton Bulldogs to the Memorial Cup, the pinnacle of junior hockey. Jordan Binnington was wondering if he had a future in the Blues’ organization. And on and on. But here they are, in the Western Conference finals, in a city where it’s nearly impossible to escape the “Gloria” song. A city where strangers talk hockey on the streets, at the gas station, in the bars. Where there’s a growing feeling that maybe, just maybe, this is the year. “I try not to over-awe myself too much,” Dunn said. “I just gotta roll with my excitement. The confidence we’ve built in this room, I think everyone’s really feeling good about each other. “We know that we’ve come a long way since the start of the season. But we just kinda need to embrace this right now.” For the Blues it might seem like a couple of lifetimes ago, or maybe 10 minutes ago, that they were scuffling at the bottom of the NHL standings and hearing boos on a pretty regular basis at Enterprise Center. “At the end of the day, this is what you play hockey for,” Schenn said. “This is fun. You bring a city together. They’re all cheering for us now.” Only four of the 31 NHL teams are still playing hockey. But as O’Reilly put it Thursday, the Blues are only halfway home. Two series down, two to go in terms of the ultimate goal — the Stanley Cup. Maroon spent a parade-free Wednesday. It was a quiet day hanging out with his son Anthony. “I know it’s a big goal, but it’s

Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington bounces the puck around during warm-ups Thursday at the IceZone in Hazelwood. time to move on and focus on Round 3,” Maroon said. “Our one goal in here is to try to go all the way and win this thing. So the focus now is San Jose, take one game at a time, one period at a time.” Schenn said: “I think yesterday still, the emotions are running through you and stuff like that. Especially when you’re watching that game last night to find out who you play. “But at the end of the day, you turn it off now. You worry about the next series. Today, coming to the rink we realize you just gotta put it behind you and get ready for the next one.” The San Jose Sharks are waiting, a formidable team with star

power, lots of offensive firepower, and all kinds of experience. They had four players with 30 or more goals in the regular season, more than any other team: Joe Pavelski (38), Thomas Hertl (35), Evander Kane (30) and Timo Meier (30). They have not one, but two past Norris Trophy winners as the NHL’s top defenseman in Brett Burns and Erik Karlsson. They can grind, they can beat you on the rush, they can muck it up in front of the net. “A deep team for sure,” Berube said. “Veteran team. You’ve got a lot of guys that have been there for a long time in that organization. They’re very successful.” It’s a more balanced lineup than

CONGRATULATIONS

the Blues saw against Dallas, with scoring threats up and down the forward lines as well as on defense. “They’ve got four strong lines,” Maroon said. “Their goalie’s good. Their defense is good. So I think with us, we gotta limit time and space. We gotta find ways to limit their time off the rush. “But they’re a good team below the top of the circles, like us. They know how to play offense. They know how to get the puck highto-low. They have really good tips; they have guys that know how to redirect the puck. Their D gets the puck through, so we gotta find ways to limit that.” That’s a lot to digest. But then there’s goalie Mar-

tin Jones. Is he the weak link? He did not have a great regular season with a 2.94 goals-against average and a save percentage of .896 — both career-worst totals for the six-year NHL vet. After some rocky moments in Round 1 against Vegas, he has settled down in a big way, allowing no more than two goals in eight of his past 11 playoff starts. “He’s been around and he’s had very good success in the playoffs before,” Berube said. So the Sharks don’t figure to be an easy out. Few teams are this deep into the playoffs. The Blues have work to do. Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

BLUES NOTEBOOK

Gunnarsson’s status uncertain for opener BY JIM THOMAS

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

After playing in the last two games of the Winnipeg series, and then all seven contests in Round 2 against Dallas, there’s some uncertainty regarding Carl Gunnarsson’s status for the Western Conference finals against San Jose. The last of Gunnarsson’s 26 shifts in Tuesday’s Game 7 victory over Dallas came with 3 minutes 2 seconds remaining in the first overtime. The veteran defenseman was on the bench but not on the ice at all in the second overtime, which ended when Pat Maroon’s goal gave St. Louis at 2-1 victory at the 5:50 mark. Gunnarsson did not participate in an optional skate Thursday at the IceZone in Hazelwood. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow,” interim coach Craig Berube said. Berube said it was a lower-body issue for Gunnarsson, who played in only 25 regularseason games due to a variety of issues. He did not play his first regular-season game until Nov. 1 as he completed rehab

and recovery from hip and knee surgeries last spring. He then missed the final month and a half of the 2018 calendar year and then most of February and March with a nagging wrist injury. When Gunnarsson has been on the ice, he’s been solid as usual, a calming influence on the defense who’s positionally sound, and good at maneuvering in tight areas. In nine games this postseason, Gunnarsson doesn’t have a goal or assist. He’s plus-1 and has averaged 15:44 of ice time. If he’s unable to play in Saturday’s Round 3 opener at San Jose, Robert Bortuzzo would replace him. Bortuzzo has played in six posteason games, but was a healthy scratch the last three games of the Dallas series.

BACK TO WORK After a day off Wednesday, the Blues had a heavily-attended optional practice Thursday. All told, 23 players participated, including several Black Aces (playoff callups from San Antonio). Besides Gunnarsson, the only players

sive corps is back in business. They contributed four goals over the final six games of Round 2 against the Stars, with three of the goals coming in Blues’ victories. One of those was Vince Dunn’s goal to open the scoring in Tuesday’s seriesclinching victory. At first it looked like Maroon might have tipped it in front of the net, based partly on his reaction. But Dunn knew it was his goal all along. “Patty’s just an exciting guy, and he’s a really emotional guy out there,” Dunn said. “He’s just as happy about it, knowing it’s a big game, knowing it was a good start for us to get that first one.” As for the now-ended goal drought by the D-corps, Dunn said. “I think it’s hard for everyone to score goals right now the way teams know each other. It’s a really tight game. There’s not a whole lot of plays to be made. It’s just kind of taking advanDUNN & CO.

from the regular roster who did not participate Thursday were Alex Pietrangelo, Jay Bouwmeester, Colton Parayko, Tyler Bozak and Robert Thomas. “I think they like to go out in those optionals,” Berube said. “It’s not structured so much. They can kind of do their own thing a little bit and just get moving around. We don’t want guys doing nothing today. It’s important to do something. “So we make it optional and they decide if they want to go out or if they want to do something in the gym.” The Blues flew out Thursday afternoon for San Jose, a day earlier than they would under normal circumstances. “West Coast,” Berube said. “Just get out there a little early, get settled in. And I think it’s good we can have a practice there tomorrow.”

the second round. They missed the next postseason altogether. They pumped in new blood, preached promise, absolutely face-planted to start this season, changed coaches again, stood up, climbed like crazy and now wind up here — facing an opponent that looks similar to the one that pushed the Blues into a spin cycle three years ago. Like, eerily similar. Pete DeBoer remains the Sharks’ coach. Martin Jones remains the goalie. The four well-known forwards — Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl and Joe Pavelski — are still big names and big threats. High-scoring defenseman Brent Burns and his Game of Thrones grooming regimen remain. The Sharks, for the most part, stuck together. They didn’t win the Stanley Cup after beating the Blues in 2016. They didn’t make it out of the first round the following season, and got clipped in the second round the next. This is their first trip back to this milestone since they beat the Blues, beginning the end of that Blues era. Now it’s the San Jose core that can feel its clock ticking. No player symbolizes it like the 39-year-old Thornton, who becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1. What comes next for Thornton, who knows. But you better believe that uncertainty is a motivating factor for teammates who desperately want to send him out on top. The Blues once felt a similar way about Backes, until the Sharks cut the feel-good scene short. It will take more than those bad memories for the Blues to send San Jose home with some of their own. “As a group of players that have been there for a long time, they really have a lot of chemistry together,” Berube said about the Sharks on Thursday. “They are a hounding team. They get after you on the forecheck. They are a deep team. They are balanced up and down their lineup, starting from the goaltender out.”

Nothing worthwhile was achieved by thinking small. Engineered on the Audi principles of innovation, performance and design sophistication, the Q7 offers the full-size utility of three-row seating and cargo flexibility. With seating for seven, driver and passengers are treated to leather seating surfaces, intuitive ergonomics and advanced infotainment. Powerful engines and renowned quattro® all-wheel drive traction give you the motivation to make progress on a grand scale.

Couture and Hertl’s nine goals each are tied for the NHL lead this postseason. Burns (five goals, nine assists) joins his two teammates in a three-way tie for first place in postseason points. After Jones was pulled twice in the first four postseason games, the goalie locked in against the Avalanche, allowing more than three goals just twice in seven games. This postseason the Sharks have averaged more goals per game (3.07), more even-strength goals per game (2.3) and a higher power play percentage (18.5) than the Blues. Still stalking their first Stanley Cup, San Jose overcame a 3-1 series deficit in the first round to outlast Las Vegas in seven games. Then they weathered another seven-game series to dispatch Colorado. Critics might say the Sharks would not be here without two close calls, but before you hold that against them, don’t forget they played six games in the conference semifinals without team captain Pavelski, who returned from a concussion to score a goal and assist on another in Game 7. Tough guy. Tough team. “Physical,” Ryan O’Reilly said. “They play big. They’ve got guys who finish checks, who are hard to play against. They have good puck-movers. They have a lot of different tools that they use, and they work very well together.” It’s that San Jose chemistry that kept coming up Thursday as the Blues prepared to catch a plane. Play together long enough, and that connection builds. A previous Blues regime lost that chance because of these Sharks. You have to think Tarasenko, Pietrangelo and the other holdovers have thought once or twice about wanting a do-over for what happened three years ago. This is as close as it gets.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOSTON — Marcus Johansson and Patrice Bergeron scored power-play goals 28 seconds apart, and Boston scored four times in the third period to rally from a one-goal deficit and beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-2 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Tuukka Rask stopped 29 shots for Boston, which trailed 2-1 before capitalizing on back-to-back power plays. Brandon Carlo deflected a slow-rolling puck into the empty net to make it 4-2 with about three minutes left, and Chris Wagner skated in on Petr Mrazek to clinch it 11 seconds later. Steven Kampfer, who started for suspended defenseman Charlie McAvoy, also scored for Boston — his first career postseason goal — with about three minutes gone in the game. Mrazek, back in net for the first time since Game 2 of the second-round series against the Islanders, made 23 saves for the Hurricanes. Curtis McElhinney finished off New York, but coach Rod Brind’Amour went back to Mrazek when he was cleared by doctors after the five-day break between series. Sebastian Aho and Greg McKegg scored for Carolina. It was still 2-1 when Jordan Staal was sent off for roughing in the opening minute of the third period. Johansson slammed home a rebound of Brad Marchand’s shot to tie it, and the Bruins were back

Boston set up in the Hurricanes’ zone, Jake DeBrusk sent the puck across the ice to Marchand, who tipped it back into the slot for Bergeron, and he slid it through Mrazek’s pads to make it 3-1. Brind’Amour called his timeout

to settle down things, but Hamilton picked up another penalty less than three minutes later. The Bruins failed to score. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara took a wrist shot from Aho off the right foot late in the first period and left for the locker room, but he was back in the second. The shot hit Chara on the outside of his right foot and the 6-foot-9

defenseman buckled over and went to the ice. He struggled to make it to the bench, and once he got there he was in obvious pain. Boston was already without Chara’s defense partner, McAvoy, who was suspended one game for a shoulder to the head of Columbus forward Josh Anderson. McAvoy was averaging a team-high 24:26 ice time, and Chara was third.

AROUND THE LEAGUE

Healthy Pavelski inspires Sharks SAN JOSE, Calif. — Ever since Joe Pavelski went down with a gruesome head injury in the first round of the playoffs, the mantra for the San Jose Sharks has been to stay alive in the postseason long enough for their captain to come

back to the ice. What a return Pavelski made to send the Sharks into the Western Conference final. Pavelski scored one goal and assisted on another in the first period Wednesday night to lead San Jose to a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche and a date in the conference final against St. Louis. “You know, you’re almost

speechless,” coach Peter DeBoer blue line on what would’ve been a said. “What an impact. What do game-tying goal in Game 7 before being overturned. you say? He’s a special player.” To the Colorado captain and his teammates, this was not debatable: Their prospects moving forward. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it DENVER — To Gabriel again, it’s a real bright future for Landeskog and the Colorado Av- this organization and this hockey alanche, this was up for debate: team,” Landeskog said. Landeskog took accountability Whether his skate brushed the

Youthful Avalanche take big step forward

for a pivotal moment in Wednesday’s season-ending loss. The Avalanche appeared to tie the game midway through the second, but Sharks coach Peter DeBoer challenged the play for offside. The call was overturned because Landeskog was still in the zone as he went off the ice on a line change. — Wire reports

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Butler lived up to his Jimmy Buckets nickname to help Philadelphia force a seventh game against Toronto in the Eastern Conference semifinals, hitting them in bunches and scoring 25 points in the 76ers’ 112-101 victory over the Raptors on Thursday night. Game 7 is Sunday night in Toronto. Kwahi Leonard, who had scored 30-plus points in five games vs. Philly, was finally tied up early by the Sixers and hit 29 points well after the game was out of hand. Leonard and the Raptors had no answers for Butler and All-Star guard Ben Simmons. Simmons broke through and scored 21 points — more than his combined total of Games 4 and 5 — and helped prove the Sixers still had some fight after a brutal Game 5 loss. Joel Embiid had played through a bad left knee and a stomach bug for

most of the playoffs, and the entire team had reason to be ill after the Raptors crushed the Sixers by 36 in Game 5. Embiid had a burst of energy late in the third when he blocked a driving Leonard, and Simmons capitalized with a basket for an 18-point cushion. Embiid had 17 points and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes. Embiid didn’t do much early in Game 6, but Butler and Simmons built some needed separation. Butler just about did it all, showing in the first half why the free agent will command a max contract in the offseason. Butler, disgruntled in Minnesota before he was traded to Philadelphia in November, scored 19 points in the half and all of them seemed worthy of the highlight reel. He took a bit of a trick shot when he rebounded his own missed jumper and was fouled by Kyle Lowry on an off-balance attempt. The basket was good, and so was the free throw. Butler stole the ball from Leonard and capped

the half with a fast-break dunk for a 58-43 lead. Butler made 9 of 15 shots in the first and gave the Sixers the confidence they needed to know another game wasn’t going to turn into a rout. Simmons was called out by Butler about the need to attack the basket and play more off screens to become the triple-double threat he was in the regular season and not the non-factor he was against the Raptors. Simmons did it all early (eight points, five assists in the first quarter), and the Sixers got the outside shots to fall — an early domination that happened even as Embiid was held scoreless until he sank a 3 early in the second quarter. Embiid missed the entirety of Toronto’s 12-0 run that cut a 19-point lead to seven and had fans booing as the All-Star big man took a breather. Embiid couldn’t afford to rest. Backup Boban Marjanovic checked in at minus-15 in just 4 1/2 minutes of playing time in the half.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Durant was reportedly diagnosed with a mild sprain of his right calf Thursday, confirming he’ll miss the rest of the Golden State Warriors’ Western Conference semifinals series against Houston, beginning with Game 6 in Houston tonight. Durant will be out again if a Game 7 on Sunday is needed to decide the Warriors-Rockets series. The Warriors said Durant will be re-evaluated next week. Durant underwent an MRI after suffering the injury and leaving with 2:05 left in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 104-99 win over the Rockets in Game 5 Wednesday night. While no exact timetable for Durant’s return was given, medical experts say a Grade 1 calf strain is usually a 7-10 day recovery period and a Grade 2 strain takes 4-6 weeks to recover. “It’s a tough injury,” teammate Klay Thompson said.“We’ll have to collectively make up for what he does. We’ve done it before.”

NBA chief: More women in league WASHINGTON — In an appearance Thursday for The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., NBA Comissioner Adam Silver said he wants to see half of all new referees joining the league be women — and he would like to see more coaches who are women. “There’snoreasonwhywomen shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball,” he said. There has never been a female head coach in the NBA. Two of the past five refs added from the developmental G-League were women, bringing the total of women officials to three. BRIEFLY LAKERS: Los Angeles is moving fast to try to fill its head-coaching vacancy by setting up an interview with former Orlando and Indiana coach Frank Vogel on Thursday, according to people not authorized to speak publicly. — Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Butler lived up to his Jimmy Buckets nickname to help Philadelphia force a seventh game against Toronto in the Eastern Conference semifinals, hitting them in bunches and scoring 25 points in the 76ers’ 112-101 victory over the Raptors on Thursday night. Game 7 is Sunday night in Toronto. Kwahi Leonard, who had scored 30-plus points in five games vs. Philly, was finally tied up early by the Sixers and hit 29 points well after the game was out of hand. Leonard and the Raptors had no answers for Butler and All-Star guard Ben Simmons. Simmons broke through and scored 21 points — more than his combined total of Games 4 and 5 — and helped prove the Sixers still had some fight after a brutal Game 5 loss. Joel Embiid had played through a bad left knee and a stomach bug for most of the playoffs, and the entire team had reason to be ill after the Raptors crushed the Sixers by 36 in Game 5.

Embiid had a burst of energy late in the third when he blocked a driving Leonard, and Simmons capitalized with a basket for an 18-point cushion. Embiid had 17 points and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes. Embiid didn’t do much early in Game 6, but Butler and Simmons built some needed separation. Butler just about did it all, showing in the first half why the free agent will command a max contract in the offseason. Butler, disgruntled in Minnesota before he was traded to Philadelphia in November, scored 19 points in the half and all of them seemed worthy of the highlight reel. He took a bit of a trick shot when he rebounded his own missed jumper and was fouled by Kyle Lowry on an off-balance attempt. The basket was good, and so was the free throw. Butler stole the ball from Leonard and capped the half with a fast-break dunk for a 58-43 lead. Butler made 9 of 15 shots in the first and gave the Sixers the confidence they needed to know another game wasn’t going to turn into a rout. Simmons was called out by But-

ler about the need to attack the basket and play more off screens to become the triple-double threat he was in the regular season and not the non-factor he was against the Raptors. Simmons did it all early (eight points, five assists in the first quarter), and the Sixers got the outside shots to fall — an early domination that happened even as Embiid was held scoreless until he sank a 3 early in the second quarter. Embiid missed the entirety of Toronto’s 12-0 run that cut a 19-point lead to seven and had fans booing as the All-Star big man took a breather. Embiid couldn’t afford to rest. Backup Boban Marjanovic checked in at minus-15 in just 4 1/2 minutes of playing time in the half. Trail Blazers 119, Nuggets 108: Portland recovered from a slow start to win at home and force Game 7 on Sunday back in Denver. Damian Lillard led the Blazers with 32 points, and CJ McCollum added 30. Nikola Jokic paced the Nuggets with 29 points and 12 rebounds.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Kevin Durant was reportedly diagnosed with a mild sprain of his right calf Thursday, confirming he’ll miss the rest of the Golden State Warriors’ Western Conference semifinals series against Houston, beginning with Game 6 in Houston tonight. Durant will be out again if a Game 7 on Sunday is needed to decide the Warriors-Rockets series. The Warriors said Durant will be re-evaluated next week. Durant underwent an MRI after suffering the injury and leaving with 2:05 left in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 104-99 win over the Rockets in Game 5 Wednesday night. While no exact timetable for Durant’s return was given, medical experts say a Grade 1 calf strain is usually a 7-10 day recovery period and a Grade 2 strain takes 4-6 weeks to recover. “It’s a tough injury,” teammate Klay Thompson said.“We’ll have to collectively make up for what he does. We’ve done it before.”

NBA chief: More women in league WASHINGTON — In an appearance Thursday for The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., NBA Comissioner Adam Silver said he wants to see half of all new referees joining the league be women — and he would like to see more coaches who are women. “There’snoreasonwhywomen shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball,” he said. There has never been a female head coach in the NBA. Two of the past five refs added from the developmental G-League were women, bringing the total of women officials to three. BRIEFLY LAKERS: Los Angeles is moving fast to try to fill its head-coaching vacancy by setting up an interview with former Orlando and Indiana coach Frank Vogel on Thursday, according to people not authorized to speak publicly. — Associated Press

THURSDAY’S RESULTS

GENETIC CODE Multi-talented Deist hopes to follow in parents’ footsteps BY JOE HARRIS

Special to STLhighschoolsports.com

Emma Deist was born to be a scientist. Her parents are both science teachers and her grandparents were teachers. So it’s no surprise that Deist, a senior at Father McGivney Catholic High School, is going to major in biology at Truman State next year. “There’s so much about it,” Deist said. “How connected all people and all creatures are, I find it incredible. I also think it’s amazing just learning about everything behind the processes that make life work for us every day. How we work. How we get energy. How plants get energy. How we breathe, all those amazing processes. There’s something really beautiful about the way life works and biology helps understand that and I love learning more about it.” Deist plans to go into pre-veterinary studies. She’s planning to double major with agricultural sciences before graduate and veterinary school. “I’m interested in zoological and veterinary medicine, particularly in regards to conservation and keeping the planet a better, cleaner place to live and caring especially for endangered creatures and trying to preserve their legacy on the planet,” Deist said. Deist’s mother, Lynne, said she leads by example at home. “She’s a big fan of Jane Goodall,” Lynne Deist said of the well-known primatologist. “She’s said she wants to be Jane Goodall when she grows up. She’s well-read and she comes across some ideas that have sparked her interest. She’s a vegetarian and she’s stayed on us about recycling.” Science is in her DNA. Both of her parents are trained chemists. Lynne Deist studied medicinal organic chemistry and did breast cancer research in graduate school and she currently teaches organic chemistry at SIU Edwardsville. Emma’s fa-

Father McGivney senior Emma Deist plans to follow in her parents’ footsteps with a career in the science field. Deist is Father McGivney’s 2019 Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete. ther, Phil, teaches chemistry, physics and aerospace at Kirkwood High School and Phil’s father was an anatomy teacher in high school. “She’s always been surrounded by people who are interested in the world and who were interested in science in particular, so that’s probably rubbed off on her for sure,” Lynne Deist said. “We joke all the time in our household that we’re ‘Dorks R Us.’ ” But Emma also has athletics in her DNA. Phil Deist is a long-time football and track and field coach. Emma’s grandfather also was a football and track coach. That love for sports translated to the volleyball court, where Emma led Father McGivney with 1.80 kills per set. The Griffins posted a 23-13 record and won regional and sectional championships for the first time in program history. Deist was selected as Father McGivney’s 2019 Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete. She was one of 161 area athletes honored Thursday night at Busch Stadium as part of the 53rd annual program. “She was with the program from when she started at McGivney,” Griffins volleyball coach Amanda Dreyer said. “So over the course of her four years at the school going from the junior varsity start of the program to our varsity launch and in three years getting to where we’re at, she contributed in so many ways whether it was her attitude, work ethic,

commitment, all of it was essential to the success we had.” Deist was a first team allconference selection this year and helped lead the Griffins to the Prairie State Conference championship. “I think the girls just wanted to make regionals,” Lynne Deist said. “When they got to regionals, they won regionals and then they got to sectionals and won sectionals. It was a dream come true. We could not possibly have scripted a more enjoyable, more exciting senior year for her and the school and the folks there have been a blessing to everybody.” Sports aren’t the only extracurricular activity for Deist, whose wide array of interests are shown through her service. Deist is a Student Ambassador, a member of the Math Team, she’s the president and founder of Father McGivney’s Model United Nations, and she’s also participated in Botball (a robotics competition) and in Scholar Bowl. Outside of school, she is active in the Metro East Humane Society and the Watershed Nature Center, just to name a few of the organizations she helps. Emma Deist said serving is a way of life at Father McGivney. “All the teachers are really open and encouraging to all students to be involved,” Emma said. “It really makes it an enriching high school experience. The last four years have been so much fun and have been an absolute joy to

participate in.” Dreyer said Emma Deist is a shining example of the school’s mission. “Service is at the heart of everything,” Dreyer said. “The responsibility we have to reach out to our community is something that we want all of our students to embody in their thinking and their way of life. That’s part of our rhythm here at our school and in good instances and examples like Emma, it shows in individual service to the community.” Emma’s biggest role models are her parents, Lynne and Phil. That passion to serve comes from them. “They always do whatever they can to help other people even when it’s not necessarily convenient,” Emma said. “So growing up watching that and seeing them be so generous and thoughtful towards other people, I’ve always wanted to be like them and so that kindness and dedication to things they are passionate about are things I’ve always tried to emulate.” Lynne Deist said her daughter has always had a Type-A personality. She’s excited to see what the future holds for her. “People ask us all the time, ‘Do you have to push her or is it a result of being a teacher’s kid?,’ ” Lynne Deist said. “We’re like, ‘No, that’s how she’s wired.’ She’s interested in a lot of different things, she likes to learn and she’s always loved school so we’ve never had to push her. We’re lucky that way.”

There is no challenge too great for Jerseyville senior Brooke Tuttle. Moving two hours away from everything she knows and starting fresh? Piece of cake. Being the only girl on the boys golf team? Easy. Surpassing a 4.0 grade point average, while excelling at multiple extracurricular activities? Child’s play. Now, Tuttle is going to take on the ultimate challenge — in a few months she will be headed to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Simply put, Tuttle lives for challenges. “That competitiveness has always been in me,” Tuttle said. So when she started thinking of a future profession, Tuttle looked toward examples set by her mother and aunt. “My mom is an attorney and my aunt used to be a secret service member,” Tuttle said. “Both of those professions are male-dominated and seeing them be very successful and not backing down from any challenge set me up to be that type of person.” Tuttle’s history teacher, Ben Gracey, saw that unquenchable desire from Day 1 when Tuttle moved to Jerseyville from Sullivan, Ill.,

Brooke Tuttle is the Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete for Jerseyville. A multi-sport athlete, Tuttle is headed to the United States Military Academy at West Point. before her junior year. “Brooke fit right into what I like to do and provide a challenging study,” Gracey said. “I kind of have that reputation and I enjoy that. Brooke embraces that and really appreciates that. It was a match made in heaven in terms of a student and teacher because she likes that challenge and I like to challenge students.” Tuttle was Jerseyville High’s selection as the school’s Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete. The 53rd annual program honored 161 area athletes Thursday at Busch Stadium before the Cardinals’ game against Pittsburgh. Tuttle was motivated by

her aunt, Patty Kelsch, and her secret service duty. “I think her career has really interested me and sparked my interest in that career field,” Tuttle said. “It’s always been a dream of mine to be a CIA agent, super cool stuff like that.” Tuttle took the first step when she committed to West Point to continue her softball career. “I’m always thankful to hear that someone like that wants to do that,” Gracey said. “She’s the kind of person they need. If she decides to keep pursuing that, she’ll fit right in and be great.” Tuttle was a cheerleader in addition to playing on the

golf, basketball and softball teams. She said she never felt overwhelmed despite the long list of activities. “In between golf and basketball season, I have three weeks that I don’t have practice and as much as that first week is nice because I don’t have anywhere else to be, I just don’t know what to do with my time,” Tuttle said. “When it comes down to it, I can’t imagine my life without sports, or school or without something to do.” Gracey said Tuttle’s mindset sets her apart from other students. “She’s not about getting that grade, it’s about really improving and learning and preparing for later down the line,” Gracey said. “It’s hard to get young people to focus on that. They’re focused on the here and now and that grade. To get someone farsighted enough to see the big picture and what it’s about is being ready down the road when they get their chances is the dream.” After reading the novel “American Assassin,” Tuttle decided she wanted to help others like the lead character in the story. “That’s part of the reason why I like it because he’s making a difference,” Tuttle said. “You may not see it, because to the world he doesn’t exist, but his actions are helping thousands.”

Hard rock band Bring Me the Horizon is on the road with “Amo,” the follow-up to its 2015 album, “That’s the Spirit.” The band’s Oli Sykes told NME the new album is reflective of the band’s ever-changing sound. “After 15 years, it’s still an issue that we don’t have blastbeats in our music anymore or that we’re not heavy — even though we’ve broken all these barriers and achieved things musically that I never thought we would.” The album includes “Mantra,” “Mother Tongue” and “Wonderful Life.” BY KEVIN C.

Pete Yorn reconnects with his music by scaling back

“I LOVED PLAYING WITH THE BAND, AND I’LL DO IT AGAIN. BUT THINGS STARTED TO FEEL A LITTLE BLOATED ... AND I WANTED TO SEE IF I COULD SCALE EVERYTHING BACK AND PULL IT OFF.” PETE YORN

After years of playing with a band, the singer-songwriter strips away all but the ‘purest, simplest elements’ BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON | POST-DISPATCH POP MUSIC CRITIC

S

inger-songwriter Pete Yorn kicks off the latest run of his ongoing “You and Me Solo Acoustic Tour” with a show Wednesday night at the Pageant. He takes that tour title literally. “It’s about stripping things back to their purest, simplest elements of me and a couple guitars,” Yorn says. kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

6

For Yorn, the evening is all about reconnecting with his music in a different way and delivering a compelling performance with less. “I like the freedom to be able to go where I want in the moment,” he says. “When you strip layers, there’s an emotional vulnerability that shines through.” After looking back at all the shows he’d done with his band over the years, he decided it was time to change it up. He’s been

touring in this format for four years. “I loved playing with the band, and I’ll do it again,” he says. “But things started to feel a little bloated — more lights, more screens behind me — and I wanted to see if I could scale everything back and pull it off. “A part of me was scared about getting out there by myself without a safety net, but I wanted to challenge myself that way.” Many of Yorn’s tunes actually originated with just him and his guitar. That made things a bit less challenging. “At first it was like, ‘How am I going to pull this off?’ But I have so many songs in my repertoire, I can go anywhere. And afterward, I can’t believe it all came together,”

he says. “I like the magic of that. These shows remind me why I love music. I think I had hit a point where I’d been doing this professionally since ’96 and asked, ‘Why am I doing this?’ I came back with ‘this is what I loved about music initially.’” On this tour, Yorn says, there’s one rule: no set list. “It has to be created in the moment every night. I like to feel out where everybody wants to go.” Having no set list is in some ways a double-edged sword for the singer. He loves coming to the table prepared; he also likes to be spontaneous. Yorn welcomes requests at his shows, which fans communicate by yelling or by holding up signs. The requests are all over the place, and most are super rare or maybe something he put on Napster early in his career. But if it feels right in the moment, he’ll go for it. Choice covers also are part of the show. Yorn has recorded many over the years, including some as bonus tracks, and he’ll pull out whichever ones feel appropriate — “the ones that speak to me in such a way,” he says. Fans typically expect Yorn to play some Bruce Springsteen, one of the acts that influenced him growing up. But he also says he’s not shy about covering a song by the Smiths, another influential act. “One of my biggest inspirations is other music,” says Yorn, whose favorite cover of late has been “Your Own Worst Enemy” by Springsteen. Storytelling is also a big part of the show. He says music prompts memories that he may have forgotten, and he shares those stories with fans. “In the middle of a song,” he says, “I’ll slow it back and talk about it.” Yorn’s latest release is the EP “Apart,” his musical reunion with his friend Scarlett Johansson. The two recorded together for the 2009 release “Break Up.” “We hadn’t done anything else since then, and we were hanging out a couple years ago,” Yorn says. “I had song ideas I wanted to share with her, and she wanted to sing.” At first, he didn’t know the actress could sing, but he loved her personality. “I love singing with Scarlett,” Yorn says. “She’s super talented, and I like what she brings to counterbalance what I do.” WHAT “An Evening With: You and Me Solo Acoustic Tour With Pete Yorn” • WHEN 8 p.m. Wednesday • WHERE The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard • HOW MUCH $32.50 • MORE INFO ticketmaster.com

DAVID CROSBY

Bad decisions behind him, Crosby has a musical rebirth Famed rocker, who battled addiction and other crises, has released four albums in the last five years BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ | SPECIAL TO THE POST-DISPATCH

t age 77, David Crosby is making some of the best music of his life. Given that he is the singersongwriter and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee who gave us classics such as “Wooden Ships,” “Almost Cut My Hair,” “Guinnevere” and “Déjà Vu,” how can that possibly be? For years, the famed rocker, who let his freak flag fly as a member of the Byrds and then Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes

A

8

Young), was emblematic of the excesses of the 1960s and ’70s. He was addicted to drugs and alcohol, imprisoned on drug and weapons charges, and beset by health and financial crises brought on by the bad choices he’d made. But he pulled himself together personally, and musically experienced a rebirth. In the last five years, Crosby has released four albums, some of which benefited from material he held back during the dying days of his most famous musical partnership. “For the last 10 years of CSN, we weren’t friends, you know?” Crosby says by phone

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.10.19-05.16.19

from his home in Santa Ynez, Calif. “We weren’t having any good times, so I didn’t feel comfortable taking any songs there. So I had some stashed, right?” At the same time, he was writing new material with younger musicians who had come into his life, including his son James Raymond — who as a child was given up for adoption but reunited with Crosby as an adult — and Michael League of the fusion/ jam band Snarky Puppy. “These people are immensely talented,” Crosby says. “My son James is one of the best writers I’ve ever run into, and he’s a much better musician than I am. And he and I have been cranking them out. We’ve written, like, four things in the last month.” Crosby’s most recent album, 2018’s “Here If You Listen,” is a collaboration — and is billed as such — with multi-instrumentalist/ producer League, guitarist/vocalist Becca Stevens and keyboardist/vocalist Michelle Willis. “I went to them and said, ‘Listen, I want to do another record, only this time I don’t want to do a solo record. I want the four of us to write it together and sing it together.’ They said, ‘Are you sure?’ And I said, ‘Yes, I’m absolutely sure.’ There’s a chemistry there, and I’m pretty good at spotting chemistry.” Some stars of a similar age and stature might let ego prevent them from partnering with younger musicians, but Crosby says he finds the collaboration stimulating. “I have to paddle faster just to keep up, and that’s really good. That’s really healthy.” Crosby performs Wednesday at the Sheldon with his “Sky Trails” Band — James Raymond (keys), Mai Leisz (bass), Steve DiStanislao (drums), Jeff Pevar (guitar) and Willis. Though Crosby continues to move forward musically, he hasn’t hesitated to cast a cold eye on his sometimes checkered past. He’s issued two frank memoirs — “Long Time Gone” and a follow-up, “Since Then” — and is the subject of a new documentary, “Remember My Name,” directed by A.J. Eaton and produced by Cameron Crowe (“Almost Famous”). “Normally, when they do documentaries on musicians, they’re self-congratulatory bull(crap),” Crosby says. “They’re like, ‘Oh, I discovered California, and then I invented electricity, and aren’t I cute?’ And you don’t learn anything about the person. If I see a documentary about someone, I don’t want to know how cool they were, I want to know what they were thinking, what matters to them, what’s inside them. And that’s what

Cameron got out of me. “He asked me the hardest questions I’ve ever been asked. It was not easy at all. But it’s an extremely honest piece of work, and we are all quite proud of it.” Crosby is not as proud that his relationship with Graham Nash, Stephen Stills and Neil Young has been sundered, but there seems little to be said or done about it at this point. “If anything, it’s gotten worse,” he says. “Neil and Graham in particular — they hate my guts! And I can’t fix that. I gotta move on and make music. It’s the only thing I can do.” As for whether the situation will ever change, he says, “I never say never. Because you just don’t know.” These days, Crosby remains politically active and, as you’d expect, is not a fan of the current administration. But as in his musical endeavors, Crosby looks to younger people to bring about change. “The kids are encouraging. Have you seen this kid, this Swedish kid, (15-year-old climate activist) Greta Thunberg? Wow, man. This kid is glorious. I love her. I would do anything for that kid.” In a more lighthearted direction, Crosby is embarking on a pair of new ventures, one of which finds him being named Rolling Stone magazine’s new advice columnist. “I think it’s the funniest thing they’ve done all year,” Crosby says with a hearty laugh. “It cracked me up so much when they called me up and asked me to do it. I think nobody in their right mind would ask me for advice about anything. I plan on giving some very silly advice.” At the same time, Crosby, a man who was always said to possess the best pot, is developing his own brand of weed — Mighty Croz, it’s called — in anticipation of marijuana’s eventual legalization across the country. “It’s going to happen soon — much sooner than most people expect,” he says. But for now, Crosby is continuing to make music and trying to keep himself healthy. “Yeah, I’m old, and the road kind of beats the crap out of me. But music is a lifting force. The same way war brings out the worst in human beings, just so does music lift the human race and bring out the very best. It’s the only way I can contribute.

An Under Cover Weekend pauses the music this year Organizer is hopeful that the concert series, with local bands paying tribute to famous acts, will return in 2020

BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON | POST-DISPATCH POP MUSIC CRITIC

One of St. Louis’ best conceptual concert series, An Under Cover Weekend, is going undercover itself this year. The event, which allows local artists to take on the persona and music of a famous act for a night, is taking kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

stltoday.com/go

2019 off, organizer Michael Tomko says. Last year’s An Under Cover Weekend took place over three nights in August at Delmar Hall. Tomko had turned his attention to other things, and the timing didn’t work out this year. “It’s essentially a one-man show,and this show takes a whole lot of work to put together each year,” he says.“This year I have a lot of stuff going on in my life family-wise and job-wise.”

stltoday.com/blender

@kevincjohnson

Tomko, who has a wife and young daughter, works as a VP of product development for a social analytics company. “I’ve been in this situation in the past and didn’t cancel it because I feel a lot of responsibility to put this on,” he says. “But I’ve had some people who’ve helped me move away, had multiple deaths in my family and a lot of stuff that required my attention. “This year is just gonna be a slog to fight through, and I didn’t want to do a half-assed show or be distracted. The best thing to do was to take a break and hopefully bring it back rejuvenated.” Tomko typically found himself juggling An Under Cover Weekend with other things. One year the show was the weekend before his wedding. Another year he remembers holding his 1-year-old daughter at a photo shoot for An Under Cover Weekend. “I always tried to blitz through it,” he says. This would have been the 13th year for An Under Cover Weekend, which showcases a

diverse array of St. Louis talent. Last year’s edition included Backwash as the Strokes, Mathias and the Pirates as De La Soul, Theresa Payne as Whitney Houston, Lyrique as Bobby Brown, Tre G as Usher, School of Rock as Blondie, Thames as Arctic Monkeys, Sister Wizzard, Pono AM, Polyshades and Mother Stutter as the B-52’s, Tiffany Elle as Brandy, Katarra as Maroon 5 and more. The event moved from the Firebird to Delmar Hall in 2017. “There are a lot of people who want to do it,” Tomko says. “That lights a fire under me. It’s really tough to extinguish this with real life.” Tomko says the decision to take the year off was difficult — artists started approaching him as soon as last year’s shows ended. “I hadn’t even been able to put it down from my consciousness — it’s always there that I gotta get it moving,” he says. “I could have made the call official months ago, but I kept thinking if I get through this and that, I’ll have enough space to do it. It was a tough decision to finally pull the cord.” He’s hopeful that the event can return in 2020 — if everything falls into place. “There’s a lot of things that have to be there for it to come back: The venue support’s gotta be there, the community support’s gotta be there,” Tomko says. “It’s hard to put a guarantee on it. I love this show and spent a third of my life on it, and I’ve seen so many artists grow from it. It’s 100 percent my intention to bring it back — it’s just my intention to make sure any time I put anything on, it has my heart in it in full.” An Under Cover Weekend has a successful formula. But in the meantime, Tomko ponders whether he should tinker with it. “The idea of changing something like that is potentially a trap — the trap of, in order to bring it back, it has to be bigger and better,” he says. “But maybe we can bend the rules from time to time — simplify a few things. But I don’t see a scenario with big, sweeping changes in a stunt to bring it back. “If anything, I’d want to bring it back to the roots of when we started this. Stepping away means maybe there’s different ways to enhance that spirit.”

‘Nina Simone: Four Women’ focuses on singer, her songs ina Simone was a singersongwriter, pianist and civil rights activist whose career has sparked renewed interest in recent years. Her song “Four Women” is the inspiration for a play with music that closes the 2018-19 Black Rep season.

To find four women who could fit those roles, but who could also act and sing those roles, was a challenge.” Thimes says she was introduced to Simone’s music “probably at the age of 11. So I was quite familiar with the song ‘Four Women,’ and it’s always been one of my favorites.” Simone was the subject of the 2015 documentary “What Happened, Miss Simone?,” which the New York Times called “bracingly urgent.” And Zoe Saldana (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) controversially appeared with darkened skin to portray Simone in the biopic “Nina” (2016). “Nina Simone: Four Women” continues to maintain a spotlight on an artist who deserves wider recognition. “Her music is still saying things that are relevant to what we’re facing right now,” Ham says. “She’s being rediscovered in a way that I think is exciting and in a way that she probably hadn’t experienced when she was alive.” WHAT “Nina Simone: Four Women” • WHEN Wednesday through June 2; performance times vary • WHERE Washington University’s Edison Theater, 6465 Forsyth Boulevard • HOW MUCH $15-$45 • MORE INFO theblackrep.org

Hathaway, who some called the highlight of the ensemble caper comedy “Ocean’s 8,” partners with another reliable scene-stealer (Wilson of “Pitch Perfect”) in this gender-flipped remake of the 1988 comedy “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (itself a remake of 1964’s “Bedtime Story”). Here, Hathaway and Wilson play odd-couple scammers: the first a cultured con artist, the other a crass grifter, in a battle to swindle a young tech billionaire (Sharp). Chris Addison, a twice Emmy-nominated director of “Veep,” makes his feature directorial debut.

‘JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 — PARABELLUM’ OPENS May 17 • RATING R • STARRING Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Anjelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Jason Mantzoukas “All of this for what? Because of a puppy?” That’s the question Huston’s mysterious character puts to the bloodied and beleaguered antihero of this hyperviolent, heavily stylized action sequel about an elite assassin (Reeves) named John Wick. In the first film, John is set on a path of vengeance after his dog is killed and his beloved ’69 Mustang stolen. But those inciting incidents took place two movies ago, and we don’t yet know who Huston plays here, in what has been described as an origin story. Fans of the hit films (soon to get a spinoff series on Starz) will remember that the last chapter ended with a cliffhanger, with Wick on

the run from every hit man in the world and with a $14 million bounty on his head. Expect a storyline that leads him to confront not just his future but his past.

Octavia Spencer in “Ma”

will get his own name on a project about a different gay 1970s rock icon: Elton John. Produced by John and his husband, David Furnish, the drama “Rocketman” has been described by Egerton as a fantasy musical — less episodic than impressionistic.

‘ALADDIN’ OPENS May 24 • RATING PG • STARRING Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Will Smith, Marwan Kenzari There was a bit of backlash when the first trailer dropped for Disney’s live-action remake of its 1992 animated hit. Some internet wags compared Smith’s Genie — described as a hip-hop take on the motor-mouthed character originally voiced by the late Robin Williams — to Tobias Fünke from “Arrested Development.” But if the Mouse House’s boldly revisionist “Dumbo” — the first of three live-action remakes of Disney classics this year — is any indication, such fresh thinking might not be a bad thing. That’s a sword that cuts both ways. This story of a ragamuffin (Massoud) in love with a sultan’s daughter (Scott) is directed by Guy Ritchie, a filmmaker who has already proved, in adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes canon and Arthurian legend, that he has a sometimes unhealthy disregard for source material.

‘BOOKSMART’ OPENS May 24 • RATING R • STARRING Beanie Feldstein, Kaitlyn Dever Feldstein, whose breakout supporting performance in “Lady Bird” dazzled critics, joins Dever of “Last Man Standing” in a buddy comedy about a pair of overachieving high

“Rocketman” won’t be Egerton’s first go at performing John’s tunes: In the animated film “Sing,” the actor, voicing a gorilla named Johnny who dreams of becoming a pop star, delivered a nice rendition of “I’m Still Standing.”

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”

‘DARK PHOENIX’ OPENS June 7 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Sophie Turner, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Alexandra Shipp

school seniors named Molly and Amy. Trying to make up for lost time, these studious nerds vow to cram as much partying as they can into the last few days of the year. The movie — which has been compared to a female version of “Superbad” — is the directorial debut of actress Olivia Wilde, working from a screenplay that first garnered buzz on the 2009 Black List, an annual compendium of the best unproduced scripts.

‘GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS’ OPENS May 31 • RATING PG-13 • STARRING Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga Everything old is new

again. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, the studios behind Gareth Edwards’ 2014 resuscitation of the seemingly undying Japanese creature feature, have teamed up for a sequel. In “King of the Monsters,” the titular kaiju (literally, strange creature) faces off against monsters Mothra, Rodan and the three-headed King Ghidorah. The big lizard, who first appeared on screen in 1954 — and whose movies have always had themes of man’s meddling in the natural world — will next go toe-to-toe with a big ape born in 1933 and last seen in 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island.” “Godzilla vs. Kong” is due out next year.

‘MA’ OPENS May 31 • RATING R • STARRING Octavia Spencer, Diana Silvers, Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, Missi Pyle “There’s something off about Ma,” says one of the teens who has been invited to party in the basement of this film’s title character. Perhaps so, but there’s something that feels perversely right about this unexpected change of direction for Spencer, who, in her first horror film, plays Sue Ann (aka Ma), a creepy loner who evolves from enabler to evildoer after a group of underage high-schoolers recruit her to buy booze for them. According to filmmaker Tate Taylor, who previously directed Spencer in “The Help” and other

films, the Oscar-winner was ready for a change of pace after a career marked by sober-minded fare. As Tate told Total Film, “Octavia — who’s just one of my best friends — had called me up and said, ‘I am so sick of having to put on period wigs and costumes.’”

‘ROCKETMAN’ OPENS May 31 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Richard Madden Bryan Singer received credit for directing “Bohemian Rhapsody,” even though he was fired for erratic behavior. But now Dexter Fletcher, the filmmaker who stepped in — anonymously — to finish the Oscar-winning Freddie Mercury biopic,

The latest episode in the X-Men franchise — said to be the last entry in the long-running saga — takes place in 1992. Is that date important? Maybe; maybe not. The series never followed an easy chronology, in recent years jumping around from the Cuban missile crisis to World War II to the year 2029. Making matters more confusing, “Phoenix” focuses on Jean Grey (Turner), a character who died in the 2006 film “The Last Stand.” Huh? It might help to imagine a giant reset button: The 2014 film “Days of Future Past,” which involved time travel, erased the events of the 2006 film. Here, Jean returns from a space mission with strange and dangerous new abilities, courtesy of something called the Phoenix Force. This puts

her at odds with her mutant pals — Lawrence as the shapeshifting Mystique, Peters as the super-fast Quicksilver, etc. — as well introducing us to Chastain’s new, otherworldly villain.

Jarmusch regulars — Tom Waits (“Down by Law”), Wu Tang Clan’s RZA (“Coffee and Cigarettes”) and Iggy Pop (the subject of Jarmusch’s 2016 documentary “Gimme Danger”). There’s a fresh face (Selena Gomez, making her Cannes debut) as well as an old friend: Eszter Balint, whose breakout role came 35 years ago, in Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise.”

‘LATE NIGHT’ OPENS June 7 • RATING R • STARRING Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow Kaling, an Emmy-nominated TV producer and writer making her feature-film debut as a screenwriter, also happens to play a writer in this comedy, set in the backstage world of latenight talk TV. She also plays foil to Thompson, a sharptongued chat host who, after 28 years in the biz, is about to get canned. (Kaling plays the new blood on the show’s all-white, all-male writing staff.) Well reviewed at its Sundance premiere — where Indiewire called the film “funny as hell, and with something to say” — “Late Night” ought to be able to capitalize on such of-themoment topics as inclusion and gender equality.

‘MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL’ OPENS June 14 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson The fourth film in the franchise about alien-hunting secret agents will be lucky if it can replicate the witty repartee between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith — the partnership that carried the first three films. Here, the jaded veteran is played by Hemsworth, and the fresh face is Thompson, a trainee with a hidden history with the Men in Black Agency.

‘THE DEAD DON’T DIE’ OPENS June 14 • RATING R • STARRING Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Chloë Sevigny A zombie flick may seem an odd choice to open the Cannes Film Festival, but this one has serious art house pedigree. Directed by the ever-unpredictable auteur Jim Jarmusch (“Paterson”), this is a horrorcomedy about small-town cops battling the undead stars, in addition to the above A-list actors: Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Carol Kane and Rosie Perez. Keep an eye out for musicians — and

PHOTOS: COURTESY OF THE STUDIOS

‘THE HUSTLE’ OPENS May 10 • RATING PG-13 • STARRING Ann Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Alex Sharp

“International” centers on an investigation into the assassination of an emissary from an alien government — a global hunt that is compromised by a mole in the agency. In a series that has always grappled with the themes of immigration and otherness, look for performances by Kumail Nanjiani, as an alien disguised as a chess pawn, and Rebecca Ferguson, as an extraterrestrial with three arms.

‘SHAFT’ OPENS June 14 • RATING R • STARRING Samuel L. Jackson, Jesse T. Usher, Richard Roundtree The tagline for the new “Shaft” movie — “More Shaft Than You Can Handle” — is more than a naughty

double-entendre. It’s also a plot description of sorts. “Shaft” is a sequel to the 2000 film of the same name, in which Jackson played detective John Shaft II, the nephew of Roundtree’s John Shaft (a cool-cop character originated by the actor in the 1971 blaxploitation classic). In this new chapter, there aren’t just two generations of Shaft, but three — with the addition of Shaft II’s grown son, John Jr. (Usher), an MIT-educated FBI agent with a specialty in cybersecurity who recruits his father in the investigation into a friend’s death. The tagline also sends a message: Directed by Tim Story (“Barbershop”), this “Shaft” promises to take itself a lot less seriously than either of the earlier films.

‘TOY STORY 4’ OPENS June 21 • RATING G • STARRING Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Patricia Arquette, Joan Cusack, Keanu Reeves, KeeganMichael Key, Jordan Peele Cowboy Woody (voice of Hanks) and his toy-box pals take a road trip with Bonnie, the little girl who inherited a carton of secondhand playthings from the nowcollege-age Andy at the end of Pixar’s “Toy Story 3.” But while traveling with her family, Bonnie’s new favorite “toy” — a reluctant craft project named Forky (Hale), fashioned from a disposable plastic spork — runs away. This leads Woody, ever the champion of children and their tchotchkes, to go after him. In the trailer, a surprisingly dark and ambiguous tease that features creepy ventriloquist dummies, Woody reunites with Bo Peep, a porcelain doll (and old flame) who disappeared

between the second and third film. Bo’s return raises issues that call into question our hero’s values.

‘YESTERDAY’ Opens June 28 • Rating PG-13 • Starring Himesh Patel, Lily James, Ed Sheeran, Kate McKinnon The new rom-com from Danny Boyle (“T2 Trainspotting”) looks — and sounds — like nothing else you’ll see this summer: A struggling singer-songwriter and Beatles fan named Jack (Patel) wakes up after a global blackout to discover that he’s living in a world in which no one has ever heard of the Fab Four, except him. This puts Jack in demand as a creative genius, while driving a wedge between him and his childhood friend (James), the only person who has always believed in him. With a screenplay by the writer-director of “Love Actually,” “Yesterday” could be the charmer that fans of old-fashioned love stories have been waiting for.

‘SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME’

14

Wait — Spider-Man is back? He wasn’t looking so hot at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War,” as you may recall. That mystery is addressed by “Avengers: Endgame.” But there are others, such as: Is Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio the bad guy or the good guy? A villain in the comics, the character — an expert in illusion and special effects — is said to join forces with Spidey in the fight against several “elemental” entities representing Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

“The Lion King”

of a psychopath, may have been cleaned up a bit too much, in an effort to make him — gasp — more likable.

OPENS July 3 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter Filmmaker Ari Aster (“Hereditary”) has been tight-lipped about his follow-up to his 2018 debut, a psychological horror film as deeply unsettling as it was artful. “Midsommar” is a “breakup movie,” Aster told Vulture, “in the same way that ‘Hereditary’ is a family tragedy.” (Thanks. He also called it, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, “a ‘Wizard of Oz’ for perverts.”)

‘WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE’ OPENS Aug. 9 • RATING PG-13 • STARRING Cate Blanchett, Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig Former TV writer Maria Semple’s 2012 bestseller is a comic pastiche of emails, letters, FBI files, medical bills and other ephemera that tell the story of an agoraphobic architect (Blanchett) who disappears on the eve of her family’s trip to Antarctica. Richard Linklater (“Everybody Wants Some!”) has been kicking around the idea of a film adaptation since 2015. And now it’s here.

Set in a rural community outside Stockholm, Aster’s sophomore effort centers on an American couple (Pugh and Reynor) who join in on a traditional Scandinavian folk festival whose cultlike rituals gradually turn dark and menacing. As scary as it looks, perhaps it’s a good thing that Aster says it will be his last horror film for a while.

The quirky premise, along with Linklater’s reputation for intimate, closely observed drama, suggests this could be a nice counterpoint to the noisier films that normally crowd theaters in August.

‘IT: CHAPTER TWO’

There are no human beings in this remake of Disney’s 1994 animated classic — just a bunch of CGI animals, including a talking, singing meerkat and warthog (voiced by Eichner and Rogen, respectively). So it’s a bit strange that people, even Disney executives, are referring to the CGI film as “live action.” (“The Lion King” was produced by Walt Disney Pictures, its live-action branch, not Walt Disney Animation.) Call it what you like. It will almost certainly look as gorgeous as the studio’s CGI “The Jungle Book.” A better question is whether the story will live up to the charm of the first film, the highest-grossing hand-drawn animation film of all time, which spawned TV spinoffs, video games and a long-running Broadway musical.

16

OPENS Sept. 6 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader, James Ransone, Jay Ryan, Andy Bean

film, this story, set in 1969 LA, focuses on two characters inspired by the late Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham: a cowboy actor who aspires to move from TV to movies (DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Pitt). Like “Pulp Fiction,” the film weaves together multiple threads, including the Tate-LaBianca murders by Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) and subplots involving movie stars Bruce Lee (Mike Moh) and Steve McQueen (Damian Lewis).

‘FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW’ OPENS Aug. 2 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby The enduring “Fast & Furious” action franchise jumped — like a nitrousoxide-burning car — from stories about illegal street racers to the tales of international espionage around the fifth film. This ninth installment is not a sequel per se, but a spinoff, built on the sturdy backs of two of the series’ recurring characters: Johnson’s lawman Luke Hobbs and Statham’s outlaw Deckard Shaw. (If you’re coming late to this party,

the two antagonists have been bickering with — and battering — each other since movie No. 7.) Here, Hobbs and Shaw are forced to become unlikely allies, partnering with an MI6 agent (Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister, when a genetically enhanced anarchist (Elba) obtains a biological weapon that — wait for it — threatens the fate of the world. The globe-trotting action includes a sojourn in Hobbs’ native Samoa. On top of the familiar premise, fans of F&F can expect gleefully physics-defying mayhem and unabashedly cliched dialogue: “Let’s do this,” Hobbs says in the trailer, as well as, even more predictably, “We’re going to need cars — and guns.”

‘THE NIGHTINGALE’ OPENS Aug. 2 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Baykali Ganambarr Set in 1825 Tasmania, Jennifer Kent’s second film is a stark departure from her 2014 debut, “The Babadook.” Unlike that contemporary psychological thriller about a monster terrorizing a disturbed child and his mother — or is it a disturbed mother and her child? — “The Nightingale” is a more clear-cut revenge drama, described by Variety as a “good-versus-evil Western.” There are three central characters: an Irish convict

(Franciosi); the army officer who raped her and murdered her family (Claflin); and an Aboriginal tracker (Ganambarr). Kent’s switch from supernatural horror to the real-world kind makes for what Variety calls “a pretty magnificent mass of movie.”

‘ARTEMIS FOWL’ OPENS Aug. 9 • RATING Not yet rated • STARRING Ferdia Shaw, Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Nonso Anozie, Lara McDonnell Fans of beloved books are the toughest audience when their sacred texts are made into movies — especially ones that deviate even

slightly from the source material. (Remember “A Wrinkle in Time”?) Does that bode ill for this Disney adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s wildly popular Y.A. fantasy novel, the first of several books about a 12-year-old criminal genius (Shaw)? One male character, who in the book acts as a father figure to a supporting character, will be played by a woman (Dench). That may be well and good, but some fans on Twitter have expressed concern about the film maintaining the integrity of the book. There are rumors that the title character, who in the books is characterized as something

Stephen King’s nearly 1,200-page novel “It” was the inspiration for the 2017 horror movie that followed a group of children — known as the “Losers Club” — as they were terrorized by an evil clown called Pennywise in 1989. Set 27 years later, “Chapter 2” picks up the same seven characters, who as children had promised to reunite if their nemesis ever resurfaced. Well, guess who’s back? The first film deviated notably — and probably wisely — from the book, by leaving out a scene in which all the boys in the Losers Club have sex with the one girl (played by Sophia Lillis). But screenwriter Gary Dauberman told Cinema Blend that the sequel will not be able to so easily avoid some version of the bizarre tongue-biting ritual, known as Chüd, that is the climax of the novel. Scared yet?

Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins in “Tolkien”

New ‘Tolkien’ movie isn’t as fun as lords and rings Biopic about young J.R.R. Tolkien is capable and attractive enough, if also less than riveting cinema ★★

PHOTO: FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES

BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN | WASHINGTON POST

y virtue of its marketing campaign (and, um, its name), the film “Tolkien” suggests that it is a portrait of the formative years of J.R.R. Tolkien, the English author of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings.” And while it certainly is a literary coming-of-age story — Nicholas Hoult plays the young J.R.R., or Ronald, as a young man, with Harry Gilby covering his teenage years — it is also very much a movie about three other young men, or at least Tolkien’s relationship to them. Those men are Geoffrey Bache Smith,

Robert Quilter Gilson and Christopher Wiseman, who with Tolkien called themselves the Tea Club and Barrovian Society (or T.C.B.S.) when the four met as teenage friends at King Edward’s School in Birmingham. “Tolkien” is a tale structured, like its subject’s books, around the theme of fellowship. Just don’t expect action and adventure along the lines of the Battle of Helm’s Deep. The movie is a capable and attractive enough biopic, if also less than riveting cinema. That’s not for lack of trying. Directed by Dome Karukoski (“Tom of Finland”) from a serviceable screenplay by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, the

film jumps back and forth between World War I France, where Tolkien served as an officer — before being diagnosed with trench fever and sent home — and the aspiring author’s school days at King Edward’s and Oxford. Between all the intercutting, “Tolkien” leans heavily on a single point: Imagination served as an escape from what Tolkien’s sickly mother calls the “impecunious circumstances” of his youth; his adolescence as an orphan, under the care of a priest (Colm Meaney); and, later, the horrors of war. Some of the battle scenes are staged as if Karukoski were channeling Peter Jackson: Smoke, fire and enemy combatants resemble hallucinatory dragons and ringwraiths, in Tolkien’s imagination. These war scenes make for a sturdy framing device for the narrative, but it’s the Oxford scenes that serve as the meat of the movie. It’s during those passages that “Tolkien” explores the hero’s courtship with his future wife (Lily Collins) and his deepening friendship with the other members of the T.C.B.S., whose meetings are spent in youthful yammering about art, music and

poetry, in that plummy British way that will be familiar from similar schoolboy tales. Although “Tolkien” presents the bond among the T.C.B.S. as brotherly, one relationship, it suggests, was particularly special: that between Tolkien and Anthony Boyle’s doomed poet Geoffrey, whose longing looks in Tolkien’s direction hint at an unrequited romantic attraction. In the war scenes, Tolkien is shown risking his life in an attempt to find Geoffrey on the front line. That implication may or may not be a bit of poetic license. Before the film’s release, the late author’s estate released a statement saying that Tolkien’s family members “do not endorse it or its content in any way.” Their reasons are left unstated, and it should be noted that the family had yet to even see the film. Still, “Tolkien” is anodyne enough that no one should be terribly upset by it, let alone deeply moved in any other way.

New movie starring Pikachu is just a hokey Pokémon ★½ BY MARK KENNEDY | ASSOCIATED PRESS

t’s got an adorable hero from an iconic media brand who is voiced by a proven box office master at snark. But, somehow, “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” never really gets arresting. A neutered Ryan Reynolds tries hard but can’t make this live action-meets-animated movie gel. It’s plodding and listless and really not funny or smart enough. Turns out, you can’t copy “Deadpool” tricks for the PG set. “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” borrows lightly from film noir crime dramas to create a mystery in a world where humans and Pokémon coexist. A young man called Tim Goodman (the terrific Justice Smith) joins with Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds) to search for what happened to the man’s

father, a missing detective. The movie’s best moments are those between the scenes, where the Japan-born creatures thrillingly share the same urban space as humans. Smith is very appealing as a son coming to grips with the loss of his estranged father, but Reynolds, as a cute coffeeguzzling detective with a Sherlock Holmes’ deerstalker cap, ping-pongs from heartfelt to caustic uneasily and tries to mimic his best-known, fourthwall breaking “Deadpool” movie character (“That’s a twist. Very twisty,” he says of one plot point.) It’s the most mismatched buddy flick since Will Smith teamed up with an Orc for “Bright.” The film starts slowly, builds to a sort of plateau and then ends with the final third consisting of nonstop action sequences and an underwhelming conclusion. Ken Watanabe is underused as a police chief. Equally inexplicably, Suki Waterhouse gets credit for a role in which she never speaks and spends about 15 seconds onscreen. Speaking of speaking, you’re probably wondering why there’s any dialogue between the adorable pocket monsters and humans since

Pokémon traditionally only just say their own names. Enter five screenwriters — Rob Letterman, Dan Hernandez, Benji Samit, Derek Connolly and Nicole Perlman. Their solution is a weird gas that makes everyone crazy but somehow allows Tim to communicate with Pikachu. Sure, gas. The pair are joined by a junior reporter — really an unpaid intern tasked with writing listicles, played by a winning Kathryn Newton — who helps them get to the bottom of the mystery using shoe leather and guile. (This is a film that celebrates the media in a big way — there are newspaper clippings, honorable TV reporting and a respected giant cable network. “It’s not news if it can’t be verified,” says one character. Take that, fake news people.) But it’s all a bit of a muddle. We meet some cool Pokémon — Charizard, Psyduck, Snubbull, Ditto, Magikarp, Cubone and Mewtwo — mixed in with a climate change joke and an attempt to burn a miming Pokémon with mimed gasoline. It’s a film that explores daddy issues and also riffs on “Silence of the Lambs” (“Are you gonna make me into a lampshade?” Pikachu asks his human minder). Some of it is very scary for younger kids; most of it is incomprehensible to adults. Then there’s Rita Ora playing a research scientist. We’re not sure why that is, but she also teams up with Kygo to supply the film’s signature song “Carry On” — a bland, lazy, derivative club banger. It’s perfect for this flat film. Live-action feature film adaptations of video games have proved a dicey proposition in the past. For every “Mortal Kombat” there’s a “Prince of Persia.” This one just feels like a venal money grab from a mega corporation. You’ve played Pokémon Go, right? Call this one Pokémon Don’t Go.

‘Poms’ has some spirit but doesn’t bring on much magic ★★ BY KATIE WALSH | TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

he elevator pitch for “Poms” had to have been: “It’s ‘Bring It On’ in an old folks home!” because that’s exactly what it is. That brilliant 2000 cheerleading comedy is the gift that keeps on giving (to the tune of, count ’em, five sequels), so it makes sense to try and re-create that magic by mapping the formula onto something like a Diane Keaton vehicle. But while “Poms” ekes out a few authentically moving moments, it lacks the acidic wittiness of Jessica Bendinger’s script, which was the essential quality that made “Bring It On” such a winner. Shane Atkinson makes his feature screenwriting debut on “Poms,” and director Zara Hayes takes a “story by” credit as well. It’s a formulaic piece, relying heavily on the fish-out-of-water tale of “Bring It On,” as well as Diane Keaton’s erudite and frazzled star persona. Keaton stars as Martha, a single, childless woman in her 70s who moves from New York City to a Georgia senior living community. She has a dire cancer diagnosis

T

she’s decided to ignore, as well as a repressed dream of cheerleading, symbolized by the high school uniform she’s held onto for all these years. The cranky, isolationist Martha meets her match in her bubbly and outgoing neighbor, Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), who is so persistent in her companionship that Martha simply succumbs. Peer-pressured to join a club by septuagenarian mean girl Vicki (Celia Weston — the only performer to nail the necessary wackiness yet with wit), Martha convinces Sheryl and a few other women to join her in a cheerleading club. Training montages, interpersonal feuds and viral videos ensue as they chase their dream of competing in a prestigious cheer competition. The story and plot are thin and merely serviceable at best, and it often seems the film has barely been written. We know almost nothing about Martha aside from her prickly personality and secret illness. So it’s hard to follow her emotional transitions, which turn on a dime and feel unearned. Much like a cheerleading routine, the story hits every expected

beat, but it rings hollow. Atkinson and Hayes do manage to achieve a few touching moments and even some inspiring displays of independence. The friendship between Martha and Sheryl becomes the emotional touchstone of the film, and Weaver helps carry the heart of the relationship. There’s even an undercurrent of rebellion in their cheers, bucking the prescribed behavior of what older women “should” do and what the prissy Vicki deems an acceptable pastime. The group refuses to be shamed and even stands up to the controlling men in their lives. One area where “Poms” surprises is in its forthright and funny treatment of death. “I’m just here to die,” Martha informs Vicki flippantly, who reminds her to aim higher than that. In a place where death is palpable and frequent, there’s a certain amount of gallows humor among the inhabitants of the community. While the fear of death remains, it’s not something that will ever stop these gals from doing what they want. Why worry about dying when you can spend your time dancing?

Dench is an idealistic spy in provocative ‘Red Joan’ ★★½ BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN | WASHINGTON POST

udi Dench is the one marquee name associated with the movie “Red Joan.” But really, with her on board, who needs more than one? Yet as good as she is, the actress is little more than the framing device for this polished and morally provocative — yet hardly pulse-pounding — tale, loosely based on the life of English spy Melita Norwood. (In her 80s, Norwood, hardly a household name, was exposed for handing atomic secrets to the Russians, dating back to World War II.) Opening with the 2000 arrest of Dench’s fictionalized Joan Stanley, and structured as a series of police interrogations, the story is largely told in flashbacks, beginning in 1938, as a young Joan (Sophie Cookson) is gradually radicalized by her Communist lover, Leo (Tom Hughes), and recruited by the KGB.

“My little comrade,” Leo calls her, over and over. Cookson and Hughes both deliver fine performances, under the irreproachable staging of theater director Trevor Nunn, working from Lindsay Shapero’s adaptation of Jennie Rooney’s 2013 novel. But the action (if that’s the right word) moves pretty darn slowly, with Joan, who takes a job working with British nuclear scientists on the code-named “tube alloys” project, hesitating to even dip her toe into espionage until after the United States has already developed — and dropped — its bomb on Japan. The film argues, persuasively, if somewhat one-sidedly, that Joan wanted to even the playing field, assisting Russia in the development of its own nuclear weapons as a way to deter any single nation from using them. Such ethical nuance will not necessarily convince everyone. Joan’s grown son (Ben Miles), a lawyer, represents

the skeptical side of things, denouncing his mother as a traitor, after he gets over his shock and disbelief. But even he eventually comes around. “Red Joan” is ostensibly a spy drama — “thriller” may be overstating it — but at its heart is more of an antiwar film. Much of the story concerns Joan’s romantic relationships: first with Leo and later with her boss (Stephen Campbell Moore). But Joan’s true passion — and the film’s, which it proudly wears on its sleeve — is for peace, even at the cost of patriotism. Or at least as that word is traditionally defined. “I love my country,” the elder Joan says, with a fervor approaching defensiveness. As delivered by Dench, those words don’t land like the rationalization of a turncoat.

It constitutes the second act and the emotional centerpiece of this moody, mind-bending romantic noir, and it ranks among the great poetic and technical achievements in recent cinema. | The first half consists of shorter shots and sequences, but its progression is still dizzying, slipping freely and without warning among flashbacks, reveries and present-tense reality.

T

step draws him into the past. This “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” has little to do with Eugene O’Neill. A more literal translation of the Chinese title would be “Last Evenings on Earth.” At once a cultural magpie and an unabashed show-off, Bi has structured his movie as a labyrinth of allusions. Memories of Luo’s past acquaintances keep resurfacing, including a childhood friend who died years ago at the hands of a gangster (Chen Yongzhong), and a beautiful former lover, Wan Qiwen (Tang Wei), who has long since disappeared. It is Wan whom Luo cannot let go of; whenever she appears, we are lost in the mists of memory. A sense of disorientation is a wholly appropriate response to a movie in which the past is both irretrievable and unshakable. But even at its most openly baffling, “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”

never loses its seductive pull. And then, just when it seems to have reached its formal limits, the picture slips its own representational bonds. Halfway through, Luo enters a theater and dons a pair of 3D glasses, your cue to do the same. Immediately, you are transported alongside him into a gorgeous nocturnal landscape, gently borne aloft by the steady, graceful movement of the camera. (Yao Hung-i, Dong Jingsong and David Chizallet are credited as directors of photography.) Without looking away, that camera floats after Luo as he emerges from a dark cavern, rides a motorbike along a road and then zip lines down into a mountain village with a billiard parlor, where still more beguiling encounters await. This sequence was choreographed and executed, with no small difficulty, in real time. The effect is one of sustained tension and wonderment, a state that compels both heightened attention and woozy surrender. For close to an hour, you watch as this succession of formal delights and narrative surprises are harmonized into a single, flowing movement both utterly convincing and thrillingly irrational. “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” occupies a space where reality and dream have inextricably merged. Details from the first half turn up mysteriously in the second. Are we being told the same story twice, in two equally hypnotic registers of dream logic? Is the second half a dreamlike emanation from the first, or vice versa? “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” doesn’t just refuse to answer those questions definitively; it asserts that multiple answers — multiple realities — can coexist. Bi wants the movie to go on forever. He isn’t alone. WHAT “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” • No star rating provided • RUN TIME 2:20 • RATING Not rated • LANGUAGE In Mandarin, with English subtitles

Kiefer Sutherland in “Designated Survivor”

Q • Is “Designated Survivor” ever coming back? A • Yes, but not where it has been before. The drama aired for two seasons on ABC, which then dropped the show. But Netflix picked it up for a third go-round, which will be available on the streaming service June 7. The two previous seasons are on Netflix now.

Contest begins Monday, May 13. Go to STLtoday.com/contests for complete details!

Q • On “Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda,” who is the actor playing Joe Kenda? Has he acted in other TV shows or movies? A • Carl Marino plays the younger version of the real-life Colorado detective in the Investigation Discovery dramatizations of Kenda’s cases. Marino has been a deputy sheriff in New York, a model and an actor in the TV show “Trauma,” “I Faked My Own Death” and other productions. An even bigger role was a real-life one in 2012, when he helped expose a private detective for whom he worked and the private

eye’s police-officer friend for their roles in a major scandal. It had what one television station called “narcotics possession and conspiracy to distribute marijuana and methamphetamine” and, according to another news organization, “the theft and sale of seized drug evidence, drunken-driving stings known as ‘dirty DUIs,’ illegal wiretapping of the cars of husbands in divorce cases, robbery and extortion.” You can find online the “48 Hours Mystery” account of the case, including an interview with Marino.

in late, “Evening Shade” aired on CBS from 1990 to 1994 and starred Burt Reynolds as a high-school football coach in Evening Shade, Ark. The cast also included Marilu Henner, Hal Holbrook, Ossie Davis, Charles Durning, Elizabeth Ashley and Michael Jeter — an enviable ensemble, to put it mildly. Both Reynolds and Jeter won Emmys for their work on the show. As for finding it on DVD, the company Visual Entertainment released a “complete collection” of the series in April. You can find it on Amazon and visualentertainment.tv.

Q • What happened to the show “Vikings”? Is there going to be an ending? Did I miss it?

Q • I was wondering why Stephen Nichols was taken off “Days of Our Lives,” where he played Steve “Patch” Johnson. Is he going to return?

A • Five seasons of the History channel series have aired. A sixth season is due later this year. It is to be the show’s last, but there have been reports of work on a spinoff. Q • The show “Evening Shade” is not on DVD. Will it be? I enjoyed the show and would love to see it again. A • For those of you tuning

A • Nichols departed “Days” last year, reportedly after a contract dispute. The fan reaction was enormous, filling Twitter with tributes to the actor and his character — and that apparently made a difference. Soap Opera Digest reported April 30 that Nichols is back at work on the soap and that there are big plans

for him in the future. Q • I was watching a “Bull” rerun when they had the character Cable’s funeral. Do you know why they removed the girl who played this role from the show? A • Annabelle Attanasio, who played Cable, asked out of her contract. “I have been given the opportunity to direct my first feature film, a story I’ve been shepherding for four years,” she told TVLine.com. “Sadly, the film conflicts with my role as Cable. … CBS and the show’s producers have graciously allowed me to leave the series.” The movie, “Mickey and the Bear,” premiered at the SXSW festival in March. Variety called it an “assured feature debut” for the writer-director, and she’s reportedly working on the script for her next film.

ABC tops report on Asian American representation on TV BY TERRY TANG ASSOCIATED PRESS

ajor television networks are hitting far more lows than highs in tapping into Asian American talent, according to a study released last week by the Asian Pacific American Media Coalition. The advocacy group’s annual report on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox came on the first day of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. ABC earned the top grades with Asian Americans depicting 11 percent of regular characters on its prime-time programs, while Fox flunked because it did not submit data,

M

the coalition said. “The report cards revealed some positives but also many areas in which the networks need to improve for Asian Americans to be able to enjoy equal opportunities and to be fully included in the entertainment industry,” the group said. The assessments of prime-time programs, including reality TV, were based on the 2017-18 season. The study examined both long-term and recurring roles for people of Asian or Pacific Islander descent and key roles behind the camera. It also looked at the impact of “pipeline programs,”

initiatives targeted at increasing diversity through recruitment and training. Of all the networks, ABC was tops with an overall B grade. In the category of on-screen talent in its comedies and dramas, ABC got an A- grade for having 24 regular characters on shows like “Fresh Off the Boat” and “The Good Doctor.” The report tallied 27 API actors in recurring parts on ABC. CBS earned a Bafter increasing API characters from 16 to 21, although most got little air time, the report said. CBS got a B+ for hiring more API directors, from eight to 18, and boosted TV writers and producers from 15 to 17. “We are pleased with the progress reflected in the report issued today, while recognizing that more still needs to be done,” CBS said in a statement.

NBC had a grade of C average with 11 API regular roles, but the report found only 12 recurring parts, down from 26. Fox has not shared its information since 2013, the report said. In the category of reality TV and talent competitions, no network got better than a C grade. The coalition, which has been doing the report for 17 years, also found missed opportunities for Asian Americans on shows that take place in locations with high Asian populations. CBS’ “Magnum P.I.” reboot is set in Hawaii, yet none of the main cast members are Asian-American or a Pacific Islander. NBC’s “New Amsterdam” depicts the drama at a New York City hospital that only has one Asian doctor. The success of “Crazy Rich Asians”

at movie theaters, the popularity of “Killing Eve” on BBC America and the Netflix film “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” may be influencing next season’s landscape. Networks have ordered nearly half a dozen pilots with Asian Americans in the lead including Ken Jeong, who appeared in “Crazy Rich Asians,” Lucy Liu and Kal Penn. Liu, who will be coming off a sevenseason run on the CBS drama “Elementary,” was honored last

week with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her star is next to Anna May Wong, who is considered the first Chinese American actress to achieve Hollywood stardom in the 1920s and ‘30s. “One need only observe the success of API-led shows on other platforms to realize that the public, Asian and non-Asian alike, is eager to consume new stories and enjoy new talent featuring Asian Americans,” coalition chair Daniel Mayeda said.

New Pastaria executive chef Jai Kendall

OFF THE MENU ▼

New Pastaria chef takes indirect path to the kitchen Jai Kendall, who began as a pastry chef and worked in Miami and Costa Rica, succeeds Ashley Shelton BY IAN FROEB | POST-DISPATCH RESTAURANT CRITIC

J

ai Kendall is the new executive chef of Pastaria, Gerard Craft’s Niche Food Group announced last week. She succeeds Ashley Shelton, who left the Clayton restaurant in March to become the chef de cuisine at Annie Gunn’s. Kendall most recently was the executive sous chef of the Clayton location of Peel Wood Fired Pizza, but her long-term path to the Pastaria kitchen has not been so direct. The Chesterfield native began her career as a pastry chef, and she describes baking as her passion. Eventually, she says, “I fell in love ifroeb@post-dispatch.com

with the art of cooking as well.” Kendall made her culinary bones in Miami working for the Rosa Mexicano restaurant chain, where she would rise from assistant to the assistant pastry chef to corporate pastry chef to executive chef of the restaurant group. Kendall then worked as a private chef, which took her to Costa Rica, where she lived for five years. She says her time there shaped her, “because Costa Rica is such a biodiverse place, and it’s really all about nature.” Kendall says she took a back-to-basics approach in Costa Rica, learning about growing and nurturing an ingredient “from a seed all the way until it grows, and picking it, and

taking that and making it into a beautiful dish.” Kendall’s first day at Pastaria was May 1. She says she is still getting acclimated to the restaurant, which since opening in 2012 has won acclaim for its pastas and wood-fired pizzas. A five-time STL 100 honoree, Pastaria ranks No. 10 in this year’s edition. “I feel like it’s such a family already,” Kendall says. “It’s truly an honor to be a part of that.” ACCLAIMED CHEF RAMON CUFFIE JOINS HERBIE’S

The Clayton restaurant Herbie’s has named Ramon Cuffie its executive chef. Cuffie succeeds Jeramie Mitchell, who has taken a job outside the restaurant industry. Cuffie’s career in St. Louis kitchens includes Bar Italia and the late Jaboni’s and La Dolce Via. Most recently, he was the executive chef of Ben Poremba’s Italian restaurant Parigi, from its opening in early 2016 until its closure in October. (Though Parigi didn’t make as big a splash as Poremba’s other restaurants, this restaurant critic was a fan of Cuffie’s cooking there.)

Parigi’s Clayton address is now the second location of Kingside Diner, the casual restaurant from Herbie’s owner Aaron Teitelbaum. Teitelbaum says he got to know Cuffie during the changeover from Parigi to Kingside. “He lent a helping hand,” Teitelbaum says. “He just did it out of the goodness of his heart.” When Teitelbaum began his search for a new chef, Cuffie was the first person he contacted. “I really don’t like ego,” Teitelbaum says. “I really don’t like people that cook for themselves. He just cooks for the people, and he has no ego. He’s just wonderful.” Cuffie is Herbie’s fifth executive chef since the restaurant relocated in 2016, from its original Central West End location to Clayton. Teitelbaum credits Cuffie’s predecessor, Mitchell, who led the kitchen since fall 2017, with getting Herbie’s to a “good place.” Cuffie, he says, doesn’t need to fix the kitchen. He can hone it. Teitelbaum says Cuffie is already refining some kitchen processes, putting his spin on existing dishes and introducing his own specials. Additional changes to the menu will be gradual. “He has lots and lots of plans,” Teitelbaum says. stltoday.com/go ★ Fair ★ ★ Good ★ ★ ★ Excellent ★ ★ ★ ★ Extraordinary

DEAR ABBY

WHAT’S THE DIFF?

Racist mother spoils family gatherings Dear Abby • My mother is 86 and drives everyone in the family crazy when we have to spend time with her. She says things that make people cringe. She’s racist, homophobic, judgmental and critical of everybody and everything. When we try to point out that what she says hurts people, she starts going into how much she is hurt — daily — by all of us, how “mean” we are to her, and how we are her family and need to be more loving. We all feel sorry for her and hate how lonely she is. We include her in all major holidays and family celebrations, but she is usually the cause of a major blowup or an overall downer for the gathering. She has no friends. She goes to radical political meetings and constantly tries to push her health products on us. Do you have any suggestions for how to respond to someone who is so

difficult for the whole family? — Reached the End of My Rope Dear Reached • Your mother isn’t friendless. Her friends are the kindred spirits she sees at the radical political meetings. Because she disrupts family gatherings, you and your siblings need to work out a schedule so each of you sees Mom and takes her out individually. Ignore her comments as much as possible. Will it be fun? Probably not. But more of her time will be filled, and you all will be able to enjoy the celebrations with her absent. Dear Abby • I’m a receptionist. There’s a growing trend that people don’t bother to listen to their voicemail. Instead they’ll call our firm and say, “Someone from your office called me. I want to speak with them.” They get angry with me when I tell them I have no way of knowing who called them. Our firm is a

large one. I don’t know why people are so lazy and inconsiderate that they don’t listen to their messages. In a couple of instances important information was left on their voicemail, and the person missed critical deadlines that cost us money. — Frustrated Receptionist Dear Frustrated • If someone calls the main number, it may be that it’s the one that showed up on the person’s phone. Tell the caller that he or she has reached the MAIN number, and you need the name of the person before you can make the connection. It’s the truth. It might also be helpful to suggest to your boss that sending clients an email or text might be more efficient. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

MISS MANNERS

Beware of bullying mother-in-law Dear Miss Manners • I intend to ask two of my childhood friends to be my bridesmaids. However, my mother-in-law has told me that it is “an unforgivable breach of wedding etiquette” not to ask her daughter, my soon-to-be sister-in-law, to be a bridesmaid. She added ominously, “If you don’t, don’t be surprised if (sister-in-law) makes a scene at your wedding. After all, being your bridesmaid is her right.” I’ve never heard of this rule of etiquette, nor of any other rules governing the choice of wedding attendants. After all, I was never a bridesmaid at my brothers’ weddings, and I didn’t think anything of it. Maybe I should have? I would hate for a grand snub to go unnoticed. Are there truly such rules? Gentle Reader • Custom does often include the siblings of the bride and bridegroom in the wedding party, but doing so is not mandatory and neglecting

to do so is not a snub. Miss Manners fears this is the least of your worries, however. She would be much more concerned about a motheror sister-in-law-to-be who wrongly imbues a bullying tactic with the full force of etiquette, and then offers to punish any lapses with truly unforgivable retribution. Is it too late to elope? Dear Miss Manners • My roommates like to host parties, which sometimes involves purchasing large quantities of food and decorations. These parties are not excessively loud or destructive, so I do not object. They typically invite people from their school program and, depending on the occasion, sometimes say I can invite my own friends. I am at these parties by default because I have nowhere else to be at night, but I am not interested in them. Usually I attempt to socialize, but sometimes retreat to my room for a

TV FRIDAY

while. Should I be contributing to these parties when my friends do not come? Can I say “not my party” and not get involved, or is it my party by default because it’s in my apartment? Gentle Reader • There is a way to avoid host duties in connection with such a party, but it requires you to vote with your feet: Find somewhere else to be on the night in question. If you do attend, you will have to assume at least the basic hostly duties of looking out for guests’ comfort and pointing them to the bathroom. Miss Manners sees no obligation to making more material contributions under the circumstances.

DR. KEITH ROACH

Commercial tests versus genetic counseling Dear DR. ROACH • I have a daughter (almost 31 years) who is concerned about Charcot-MarieTooth syndrome. Her maternal grandmother has been diagnosed with that condition. She is interested in seeking out a genetic test to learn if she is susceptible. She was referred to a commercial, direct-to-consumer laboratory for the test. How likely is it that a lab test for this specific condition would be accurate? — R.C. Answer • CharcotMarie-Tooth disease is the eponym given to a family of hereditary motor sensory neuropathies: diseases that affect the nerves that carry the impulses necessary for movement and sensation. The initial symptoms are most commonly weakness in the feet, followed by similar problems in the hands. The diagnosis may be made by electromyography, a needle study of the electrical activity of the muscles, but genetic testing is another method. Commercial genetic testing is available, and probably accurate. However, I would recommend a visit to a genetic counselor. This may require a referral from her primary care doctor. It is likely that your daughter will have questions after the test results, and the benefit of having an experienced clinician to answer them would be invaluable. Dear Dr. Roach • For many years I regularly donated platelets, once even a dedicated donation for a match on bone marrow website. However, since having several malignant melanoma cancers removed, I have been advised to stop donations, and also no longer be an organ donor. — D.M.R. Answer • There is not an absolute answer to this question. On rare occasions, organs transplanted from a person with a history of malignant melanoma have transmitted cancer to people via the donated organs as long as 32 years after the disease was thought to have been cured. However, in some cases, the transplant team has accepted organs from people with a distant history of melanoma, especially in someone whose need for an organ is so acute that they would likely die within days without it. A stable person awaiting kidney transplant, for example, would not be offered an organ from a person with a history of melanoma. Most blood banks accept blood and platelets from a person with a history of a solid cancer (such as melanoma, lung or breast) if they have been cancer-free for a period of time. People with a history of liquid cancer (leukemia or lymphoma) generally cannot donate again.
