FATTER WALLETS campaign. An analysis of the campaign’s finances shows that the bulk of the $877,000 it spent went to a company owned by one of Greitens’ political consultants, Jeff Roe, and to other Greitens allies — including a company employing Greitens’ campaign director, Austin Chambers, and at least one law firm whose partner is a key Greitens supporter. Freedom to Work ultimately raised more than $1.7 million from A New Missouri and other sources as of April 1.

JEFFERSON CITY • A New Missouri, a

dark-money group that pushes Gov. Eric Greitens’ agenda, dropped $1.15 million this year into an effort to place a pro“right-to-work” question on Missouri’s November ballot. But backers of the Freedom to Work effort failed to turn in any of the 160,000 signatures required to put the question to voters by a May 6 deadline, dooming the

It is unclear why the effort faltered. One Freedom to Work organizer, Kristen Blanchard Ansley, blamed a pro-union conspiracy and “attacks” by its allies. In a news release Sunday, she said more than 20,000 signatures were unaccounted for after two incidents. Her statement linked to a video of a brawl purported to be such an attack, but she did not return messages seeking further comment and evidence.

WASHINGTON • Envisioning “a very special moment for world peace,” President Donald Trump announced Thursday he will meet North Korea’s Kim Jong Un for highly anticipated summit talks in Singapore on June 12. He set the stage for his announcement by hosting an overnight, made-for-TV welcome home for three Americans held by Kim’s government. “We welcomed them back home the proper way,” Trump told supporters at a campaign rally in Indiana on Thursday evening.

Greitens’ pick for top cop perfecting the art of looking the other way TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Imagine it’s December 2016 and you’re Eric Greitens. You’ve just been elected governor of Missouri in a shocking upset, and you’re putting together your Cabinet. No appointment is more important than the director of the Department of Public Safety. That position oversees the Missouri Highway Patrol, which will ultimately assign bodyguards to be with you at all times. You know things your closest advisers don’t. You know that you have certain, well, proclivities. You know what happened in the basement of your family home in March 2015 with a woman who was not your wife. You know about the donor list your campaign used without permission from the nonprofit veterans organization you founded. You know about the trail of dark money that got you elected and is already piling up to support your ongoing political career. What do you need in the state’s top cop? You need somebody who knows how to look the other way. Enter Drew Juden. The police chief of rural Sikeston in southeast Missouri is the perfect foil. He’ll stand up with you as you suggest the Constitution will not be a barrier the next time black St. Louisans take to the streets demanding the protection of their civil rights. You’ll be Boss Hogg. He’ll be Sherif Rosco P. Coltrane. You know this because Juden has a track record. In August 2000, Juden was the arresting officer when David Robinson was charged with the murder of Sheila Box. Juden was the supervisor of Detective John Blakely, who gathered the evidence, paid snitches, and put together a case in which witnesses would lie to convict an innocent man. The Missouri Supreme Court ruled this month that Robinson should be released from prison. That ruling follows a damning report issued by Judge Darrell Missey, a special master in the case, who found overwhelming evidence that Robinson is innocent and that his entire case has been a “manifest injustice.” Missey was appointed after extensive reporting from the Southeast Missourian in 2016 raised serious questions about the case and found that witnesses had recanted their testimony, that Blakely had failed to fol-

low leads and that the detective had manipulated the alleged tipsters that led the Sikeston Police Department to Robinson. “We’ve reviewed all of the cases across the country of wrongful convictions and he’s the single most innocent person we’ve ever seen,” says attorney Jonathan Potts of the Bryan Cave law firm in St. Louis. “It still took 14 years to get him out of prison.” Robinson is still in state lockup in Jefferson City awaiting his ultimate release but should be free within the month. He wouldn’t be there if not for the dedication of the reporters and attorneys who challenged a police department that looked the other way and an attorney general’s office that even argued after Missey’s 91-page report that Robinson’s “actual innocence” wasn’t enough to set him free. Potts was part of the team of attorneys that fought for years to clear Robinson’s name, along with Charlie Weiss, Steve Snodgrass and Jim Wyrsch. “We certainly got the right result here,” Potts says. “But it shouldn’t have taken this long.” On Wednesday, Blakely, who had been suspended after Missey’s report came out, resigned his position. And Juden? He’s still perfecting his ability to look the other way. Twice last year, his new boss, Greitens, asked the director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety to investigate potential malfeasance in state government. Both times, Juden failed to leave a paper trail. In the spring, after I reported that the FBI was investigating the practice of Highway Patrol employees who are supposed to regulate trucking safety actually sitting on the board of HELP Inc., one of

the companies they regulate, the patrol conducted an inquiry. It said it gave the results of that inquiry to Attorney General Josh Hawley. But there was no report. I asked for it and received nothing. So did Auditor Nicole Galloway. “There was no written report,” her audit found. Galloway has now recommended criminal charges against several former state employees. Neither was there a written report last summer when advocates and family members of veterans who live at the St. Louis Veterans Home complained of massive issues with the administration that led to abuse and even death at the state-run facility. When U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt asked Greitens to investigate, he was indignant, saying that among other investigations, Juden had already conducted one and found no issues. He sarcastically told the senators to “Google” the previous investigations. In fact, Juden produced no report. Former state Rep. Rick Stream, RKirkwood, who was one of the advocates pushing for an investigation, called it a sham and a cover-up. “None of the people in our report even talked to Drew Juden or anybody from public safety,” he said. After the governor hired Juden, the same reporters who uncovered the misdeeds that led to Robinson’s improper conviction, asked Greitens if he knew about Juden’s involvement in the case before the governor hired him. “I don’t know about that case,” Greitens said. Google must have been down that day. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

Reunited Utopia lets the music speak for itself at Peabody BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ Special to the Post-Dispatch

“There’s a thing going around, and I got it,” Todd Rundgren announced a few songs into Utopia’s show Wednesday night at the Peabody Opera House. He blew his nose into a towel and, as he spoke, he did indeed sound hoarse and congested. Illness nearly felled the much-anticipated reunion — more than a quartercentury in the making — of longtime Utopia members Rundgren, Kasim Sulton and John “Willie” Wilcox before it even began. Citing health reasons, keyboardist Ralph Schuckett bowed out several weeks before rehearsals and was replaced by Gil Assayas. For more than 20 years, Utopia’s career ran alongside Rundgren’s. For the most part, the band maintained its own identity: In the ’70s, it was an exploratory

CONCERT REVIEW and sometimes excessive progressive rock outfit; in the ’80s it turned to a more concise and direct format, power pop. Wednesday’s show reflected both sides of the band’s personality and included music from nearly all of its albums. Utopia opened the show with two long pieces dominated by instrumental solos. The 15-minute “Utopia Theme” showcased Rundgren’s guitar, while Sulton’s bass led “The Ikon.” . Things tightened up on “Another Life” and a take on the Move’s “Do Ya.” Rundgren’s hoarseness marred his vocals on “Freedom Fighters” and “The Wheel,” but he sang with enough spirit and determination that the soulfulness of the latter number shone through. Sulton sang lead on “Back on the Street,” and “Monument,” both of which served as reminders that the band is a partnership,

not a mere backing band for Rundgren. The lion’s share of the second set was drawn from Utopia’s early- to mid-’80s albums, including “Adventures in Utopia,” “Swing to the Right” and “P.O.V.” Among the highlights were “The Road to Utopia,” and “Set Me Free,” the band’s highest-charting single, sung by Sulton. Wilcox sang “Princess of the Universe” while Rundgren hung tough, adding some vocal-cord-shredding screams to “Trapped” and “Hammer in My Heart.” But the real fan favorites were some of the older tunes, including “Love in Action” and especially “Love Is the Answer.” During the encore, “Just One Victory,” Rundgren sang, “Can you hear me/The sound of my voice?” and added a snarky aside: “Rough, isn’t it?” It was. Nevertheless, the show still wound up being a treat for fans who have been, as the song says, “waiting so long” — decades, in fact — for it to happen.

Bourdain rubs Newfoundlanders the wrong way • Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s TV show has angered some Newfoundlanders over the use of a diminutive nickname many find ofensive. The Twitter account for CNN’s “Parts Unknown” used the term “Newfie” in a promotional tweet for an episode on local cuisine and landscapes in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The oicial account of the food and travel show said, “Embrace the Newfies as they are.” The term has origins implying Newfoundlanders are unintelligent and lazy and is considered derogatory. One man tweeted that “a fair portion of Newfoundlanders find the term ‘Newfie’ ofensive.” Dr. Drai vs. Dr. Dre • Dr. Dre has lost his trademark fight against Dr. Drai. Dre, the rap mogul and record producer whose real name is Andre Young, opposed the trademark application of Dr. Draion M. Burch, a Pittsburgh gynecologist who calls himself “America’s OBGYN.” Burch, whose website advertises that he’s a sex expert and media personality, is known professionally as “Doctor Drai.” Dre objected, arguing that because Drai’s appearances take place in a “nonmedical setting,” they are entertainment. A trademark panel rejected that argument, saying Drai’s “entertainment and educational motivational speaking services … are a subject matter which is obviously far removed from music.”

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Jury inds man guilty in death of girlfriend’s toddler • A St. Louis jury Thursday found a man guilty of deadly child abuse in the fatal beating of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son in 2014. A jury found Hershell P. Kirkman, 30, guilty of the felony charge after a three-day trial before St. Louis Circuit Judge Annette Llewellyn. He was accused of fatally beating Dashon Haskin, his live-in girlfriend’s son. Police said Kirkman repeatedly struck Dashon, lacerating his liver. Police have said the boy’s mother, now 26, admitted hearing noises that she believed were Kirkman as he hit her child, then her son gasping, but did not call for medical help for several hours. Dashon was not breathing when police were called to the couple’s home about 7 a.m. Jan. 9, 2014, in the 5600 block of Kingsbury Avenue. He was pronounced dead a short time later at St. Louis Children’s Hospital of blunt force trauma. Kirkman was indicted in January, less than a week after prosecutors dismissed murder charges against him, and dropped a child endangerment charge against the boy’s mother, Ericka Haskin. The case was dropped and reiled previously. Sentencing for Kirkman is set for June 29. EAST ST.

Open impeachment process is sought Greitens attorneys want public to be able to observe work BY KURT ERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Attorneys hired to

assist Gov. Eric Greitens if Missouri lawmakers seek to impeach the embattled chief executive say they want to ensure the process is brought out of the shadows. With a special House committee compiling information that could be used to impeach Greitens in the coming weeks, attorney Ross Garber said he wants to work with legislative leaders to outline a process that the public can observe. “The notion of disciplining a governor is an extraordinarily significant and rare thing and any process that is used to evaluate that has to be fair, constitutional and open and transparent,” Garber told the Post-Dispatch on Thursday. Garber, a Connecticut resident who has defended three other governors facing

impeachment proceedings, is being paid $320 an hour in taxpayer funds to help navigate the legal questions that come when a legislative body investigates the executive branch. Also on board the legal team is Kansas City attorney Eddie Greim of the Graves Garrett law firm. The firm is headed by Todd Graves, chairman of the Missouri Republican Party and a Greitens ally. Except for issuing two scathing reports about Greitens, the special investigative committee probing Greitens has conducted the bulk of its work behind closed doors. House Speaker Todd Richardson, RPoplar Bluf, said the nature of the committee’s initial work necessitated the secret meetings. He suggested that will change after May 18. “As we move into the special session, those things will be conducted in a very fair and open manner,” Richardson said Thursday. “From the beginning, I’ve said we’re going to have a fair and open process.” With Greitens on trial for felony invasion of privacy in a St. Louis courtroom beginning Monday, the House and Senate have scheduled a special session of

the Legislature beginning May 18 to review the committee’s report and decide whether to start the process of removing the governor from oice. In announcing the special session, Richardson said the session will give the committee “the time it needs to conduct a fair, thorough and timely investigation” without being halted by the end of the regular session. Garber and Greim said House leaders must be aware of the precedent of launching an impeachment proceeding. “What the House is doing today will affect every future governor and will potentially afect all of the voters who cast ballots in the last election,” Garber said. Greim said the template used by the House will be viewed by other states pondering similar actions. He said he hopes the governor’s legal team can meet with Richardson to map out procedures that will be used in any possible proceedings. Before the House adjourns the regular session at 6 p.m. May 18, lawmakers could approve a procedural framework for how the impeachment process would work. Under one proposed timeline, the House would need at least five days to hold hearings, introduce legislation to impeach

Greitens and debate the measure on the floor. If Greitens is impeached, his fate would move to the Senate, which would appoint seven judges to hear the case for his formal removal from oice. But while the House and Senate have until June 17 to complete this work, the seven-judge panel would not have to operate under that time constraint. Rather, according to statutes, the judges must meet in Jeferson City within 30 days of being appointed. That could send the process into mid-July. The panel then must pick a president and a secretary and notify the governor that they will be presiding over his trial. All those steps could take the process into August. Greitens was charged in February with felony invasion of privacy in connection with a picture he allegedly took of a woman he was having an afair with in 2015. The governor also faces a charge of felony computer tampering for obtaining a fundraising list from his former charity, The Mission Continues.

before he was elected governor. She told her ex-husband, in a conversation that he tape-recorded surreptitiously, that during a sexual encounter in the basement of his Central West End home, Greitens told her, “You’re never going to mention my name, otherwise there will be pictures of (you) everywhere.” Prosecutors acknowledged in court Wednesday that they still do not have the photo the woman said Greitens took. They are expected to attempt to show that transmission of the alleged photo — a requirement for invasion of privacy to be a felony — was simultaneous to its being stored into a smartphone’s memory bank. Since the first-term governor and former Navy SEAL was indicted in February, he has declined to say whether he took a picture but has denied blackmailing the woman and has labeled the investigation a “political witch hunt.” Greitens, 44, arrived at the courthouse in the back of a dark SUV about 8:30 a.m. and pulled into a gated driveway from Chestnut Street on the north side of the Civil Courts building in downtown St. Louis. Greitens was greeted with handshake and a hug from St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts and was flanked by his own security guards as he walked into the courthouse. At least seven sheriff’s deputies and one of the governor’s security personnel were outside the seventh-floor courtroom of St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison, where the trial will be held. The governor sat at the end of a table, wearing a dark blue suit, white dress shirt and a solid, violet-colored tie with a white pocket square and black leather cowboy boots. He had a brown leather satchel at his feet. He wore a wedding band on his left ring finger, but there was no sign of his wife in or near the courthouse. Greitens sat next to lawyer Michelle Nasser and with two other defense lawyers, Scott Rosenblum and Jim Bennett. At least five other defense lawyers also have been present. St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, First Assistant Circuit Attorney Robert Steele, an intern and Ronald Sullivan, a Harvard law professor working with prosecutors, sat at the opposite table in the courtroom. Also in the courtroom were a few spectators, several sherif’s deputies, several reporters and one security guard each for Greitens and Gardner. A pool of 160 St. Louis residents was summoned for Greitens’ trial, scheduled

to start with opening statements Tuesday. Burlison called for 40 jurors Thursday morning and 40 more in the afternoon, with the same timeline for Friday. Each juror was to complete a questionnaire meant to find out each person’s knowledge of the case. The first 40 filled out questionnaires Thursday, which resulted in the dismissals of six people who cited being caregivers or having health problems or job or travel conflicts. Shirley Cunningham, who was dismissed because of a hardship, said that she didn’t want to serve — not because it was the governor’s case but because she felt would be able to focus only on the ailing relative who needs her. Cunningham said she was aware that Greitens had an extramarital afair and allegedly took a picture of the woman but said she didn’t know details. A woman who made the cut for the jury Thursday said in court that she only knew Greitens had been indicted from scrolling through news on her Facebook feed and

said she had not formed an opinion on the case. Asked if she believed a picture was taken, she said she did, but felt she could set aside her opinions and decide the case based on the evidence. “I really don’t know a lot about the case, or details,” she said. At least 14 people had been struck for cause, meaning that they had already formed opinions about the case or about Greitens. Asked by Rosenblum if she believed Greitens to be “responsible” for what he’s accused of, one woman answered, “Yes,” but later said she was only “leaning” in that direction. Another woman disliked one of Greitens’ campaign ads. “Rubbing me the wrong way is probably too strong” to say, she told Rosenblum, but added that she thought the ad was “kind of a jerky thing to do.” She insisted she could put her opinions aside, but she was struck from the jury. One woman was eliminated after she

said she had heard reports that prosecutors “maybe weren’t as thorough as they needed to be,” referring to the state’s handling of evidence and of William Don Tisaby, the ex-FBI agent hired by the circuit attorney’s oice to investigate the governor. The defense has repeatedly accused Tisaby of perjury and prosecutors of misconduct. By 3 p.m. Thursday when it was clear that lawyers had questioned fewer than 30 people, the judge had the afternoon group of 40 prospective jurors fill out questionnaires to allow lawyers to review them before they returned Friday. The judge had hoped to finish with 80 people Thursday. But by the end of the day, he said that based on the number of jurors that had already been seated, they may need to question only 80 or 90 to get enough. The trial may run through next week.

Big money for failed petition drive went to Greitens’ consultants, allies PETITION • FROM A1

Union allies say the anti-union forces were trying to point fingers following their failure to collect enough signatures from registered voters. Two men told the pro-union Labor Tribune last week that they were paid canvassers for the pro-right-to-work campaign and were mistreated and cheated out of money while working on it — leading to speculation that internal discord contributed to the campaign’s undoing. Whatever the reasons for the failure, records show that a tightknit group of Missouri political consultants, many of whom are aligned with Missouri’s embattled governor, walked away from the project with much fatter wallets. “It seems like the consultants all made a lot of money on this failure,” said Sen. Jacob Hummel, D-St. Louis, who is secretary-treasurer of the Missouri AFL-CIO.

RIGHT-TO-WORK BATTLE So called right-to-work laws forbid requirements that someone pay union dues as a condition of employment. Opponents argue such laws reduce wages and benefits because they damage collective bargaining power. Proponents argue such laws act as a magnet for employers. An analysis of campaign finance re-

cords found: • A New Missouri wrote a $750,000 check to Freedom to Work on Jan. 3 and cut a $400,000 check to Freedom to Work on Jan. 31. On Jan. 4, a group owned by Missouri political consultant Jeff Roe, Vanguard Field Strategies, received $100,000 for signature collection. Vanguard received an additional $500,000 in March for signature collection. • C5 Creative Consulting received $46,000 for strategic planning, travel and expense reimbursement from Freedom to Work. Austin Chambers, who runs A New Missouri, also worked for C5 before the shop shuttered last week. Chambers did not respond to requests for comment. Nick Ayers, a Greitens adviser and Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staf, founded C5. • The Kansas City-based Graves Garrett law firm received $25,000 from the campaign for legal services. Todd Graves, chairman of the Missouri GOP and a Greitens ally, is a partner at the firm. He did not return requests for comment. • Other Greitens- and Ayers-ailiated entities, including a firm owned by Meredith Gibbons, a Greitens fundraiser, also received payments for working on the campaign. • A New Missouri donated $350,000 to another right-to-work affiliated group

called Missourians for Worker Freedom last summer. During that time, the committee paid $281,000 to Roe’s Axiom Strategies for work described as “field support services” and “voter ID calls.” Graves’ law firm has made $186,331 from that group since last summer for work described as “legal services.”

ATTACKS? On Sunday, the day signatures needed to be turned in, Ansley, spokeswoman for Freedom to Work, blamed the initiative’s demise on pro-union canvassers who, she said, had sabotaged the efort over several weeks, namely during two incidents in St. Joseph and Columbia. She claimed that after the two incidents, “more than 20,000 signatures are unaccounted for.” Spokespeople for the Columbia and St. Joseph police departments did not immediately produce records of any purported incidents. Hummel said pro-union canvassers have not worked in the field since August. He suggested Ansley was trying to cover up internal discord among the group’s workers. “That’s not our fault that maybe they picked the wrong people to hire,” Hummel said. The Labor Tribune reported last week accounts from two canvassers who said

they were cheated out of paychecks and misled about the intent of the initiative for which they were collecting signatures. They told the Tribune that a subcontractor, Las Vegas-based Advanced Micro Targeting, had hired them to collect signatures. When contacted Wednesday, a woman who answered the phone at Las Vegasbased Advanced Micro Targeting told the Post-Dispatch “we don’t talk to the media, but thank you” and hung up.

BACK AT IT With the failed canvassing efort, proponents of right-to-work have apparently given new life to a Plan B: pushing a resolution making its way through the Legislature that would ask voters this November to embed right-to-work in the state Constitution, the same thing for which canvassers were collecting signatures. Lawmakers would need to approve the question by the Legislature’s May 18 adjournment. It would battle a competing November ballot question asking voters to strike down Missouri’s right-to-work law, which Greitens signed last year. As the legislative resolution gained new life this week, A New Missouri cut a $500,000 check to Freedom to Work. Jack Suntrup • 573-556-6184 @JackSuntrup on Twitter jsuntrup@post-dispatch.com

Political donors cannot be concealed, watchdog says BY SKY CHADDE St. Louis Post-dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Nonprofits that donate to political campaigns can’t conceal the identities of their donors, Missouri’s campaign finance watchdog said in an opinion Thursday. The opinion targets dark money groups, which take in untold millions in political donations and don’t have to disclose their donors, making the origin of the money nearly impossible to determine. Their use has trended up in recent years, and one prominent organization that has employed the tactic is A New Missouri, a nonprofit created to promote Gov. Eric Greitens’ agenda. “Both the Missouri Constitution and Missouri campaign finance disclosure law contain prohibitions on making contributions to a committee with intent to conceal the identity of the actual source of the contribution,” James Klahr, the Missouri Ethics Commission’s executive director, wrote in the opinion. The opinion is a victory for transparency and a step toward “lifting the cloud of dark money in Missouri politics,” said Richard Reuben, who teaches election law at the University of Missouri. “It basically says, ‘We’re taking disclosure seriously,’” he said, adding that knowing who is funding candidates or ballot initiatives will help voters make more informed decisions at the polls. According to the ruling, under Missouri law a nonprofit becomes a political committee once it accepts contributions of more than $500 in a year or more than $250 from a single person in an attempt to sway voters.

Once the nonprofit becomes a committee, it must register with the ethics commission and start to file reports that include names of donors and amounts, according to the opinion. “This is a pretty broad and clear statement,” Reuben said of the opinion. “I would expect most nonprofits to begin complying as soon as they can.” However, he said, he wouldn’t be surprised if a nonprofit challenged the advisory opinion in court. Klahr did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Greitens and his allies set up A New Missouri in February 2017. As a nonprofit, it can accept unlimited donations, the source of which it doesn’t have to disclose. The nonprofit can then provide the money to a super PAC, which can stump for a particular candidate or issue. Recently, A New Missouri donated $750,000 to a political action committee called Freedom to Work, which advocates for “right to work” legislation. Austin Chambers, who ran Greitens’ election campaign, said at the time of A New Missouri’s creation that transparency wasn’t an issue. But Democrats decried its formation, saying it smelled “funny.” Chambers did not return a request for comment Thursday. A lawyer for A New Missouri did not respond to a request for comment. Greitens was in court in St. Louis Thursday as jury selection started in his trial on a felony invasion of privacy charge. He’s also been charged with computer tampering in connection to his use of a donor list from his charity, The Mission Continues, to raise political funds.

GOP candidates agreed to a joint poll of Missourians, with the loser dropping out SENATE • FROM A1

to go ahead with it. Monetti blamed Petersen’s campaign manager, Jefrey Carson, for making demands and interjecting arguments that scuttled the plan. Petersen said in an interview that Monetti told him Wednesday he would not honor an agreement he had signed April 13. But Monetti subsequently told the Post-Dispatch that he wants to try to iron out diferences — mainly involving which questions to ask on the poll — in subsequent conversations, including before a debate in suburban St. Louis on Friday night. The dispute adds another layer of debate over trust in the GOP Senate primary. Hawley has been attacked by his rivals for ridiculing politicians who try to use one election to climb to another during his successful 2016 campaign for state attorney general. The winner of the primary will face incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill in November. The unusual agreement came, Petersen said, from an entreaty from Monetti in early April. “About a month ago he approached us and asked us to drop out, and we were pretty confident that we were the premier grass-roots campaign with the real chance to beat Josh Hawley and then Claire McCaskill,” Petersen said. “But we knew that if we split up the grass-roots vote that we weren’t going to be able to accomplish that, so we just proposed to Monetti (that) instead of us dropping out, why don’t we try to unite the grass roots?” Now that Monetti has backed out, he said, “absolutely, we are going to make an issue of this because one of the primary reasons why I am running against Josh Hawley is he couldn’t keep his promise to Missouri voters six months into his first year of his first term.” “I don’t trust politicians, especially those who say one thing and do another,” Petersen said. “Monetti is trying to position himself as a good guy, who is trustworthy, and that is no longer the case.” Monetti blamed Petersen. “It is clear to me they have circumvented what I was planning on doing, which was to negotiate what are the questions of the polls as a minimum,” he said. “I am ready to do this if he wants to do it.” He said he and Petersen were on a “similar understanding” and that “there is more to this story, I promise you.” “We are not going to beat the establishment and young Josh with both of us in the race, we both know that,” Monetti said. “The only way we are going to do that is unify but … everything comes down to one poll, man.” He said he was disappointed the dispute was going public. “Are you kidding me, man?” Monetti said. “This is what politics are all about. This is why people are sick and tired of these people.” The “grassroots candidate unity agreement” says that “in order to provide Missouri voters with a clear, viable, grassroots alternative to the establishment backed candidate, the leading grassroots challengers take it upon themselves to organize a penultimate primary.” “The ‘pre-primary’ is a winner-take-all contest,” the agreement continues. “The winner will move forward in the GOP Primary to face the establishment pick headon, and the runners-up will not. The runners-up will concede, endorse the winner, and remove their names from the Primary ballot.” The agreement stipulates that only those who had raised $250,000 for their

Austin Petersen (left) and Tony Monetti

campaigns could participate. That eliminates Courtland Sykes, a fourth announced primary candidate who reported raising less than $20,000 and having $163 in his campaign account as of April 1. Monetti is an Air Force veteran who piloted B-52s in the Gulf War, then flew B-2s before retiring as a lieutenant colonel, according to an online biography. He left the Air Force in 2012 and has run an Italian restaurant in Warrensburg, Mo. “Career politicians are on notice,” Monetti told “The Sentinel,” an online publication that covers western Missouri and Kansas. “The people, patriots, veterans and constitutional conservatives are taking America back.” Monetti raised $384,000 for his campaign through March, and had about $44,000 left in his campaign coffers as of April 1, according to Federal Election Commission records. Petersen, who unsuccessfully sought the Libertarian nomination for president in 2016, raised $434,000 through March and had just under $71,000 cash on hand. He says he was “born in Independence and raised in Peculiar, near a town called Liberty” — a reference to three Missouri towns. “It’s time to put Washington in its place as the protector of our most cherished liberties,” Petersen says on his internet site. “It’s time to put people in their rightful place as the governors of their own destinies.” Petersen was among the first federal candidates to accept the cryptocurrency bitcoin for campaign donations. The signed agreement does not name Hawley, only referring to him as the “GOP establishment pick.” It says that “it is estimated that the GOP establishment pick will garner approximately 50 percent of the Primary vote, plus or minus 5 percent. It is also estimated that the anti-establishment, grassroots, liberty and MAGA (Make America Great Again) contingent will garner approximately the same.” It continues: “Simply put, there is no logical mathematical way that the antiestablishment, grassroots, liberty and MAGA contingent can beat the GOP establishment pick, unless bold measures are taken.” The document shows Petersen signed it on April 11, Monetti on April 13. The poll was to have been taken between May 14 and May 18, with a news conference on May 21 to announce the winner, while “runners-up remove names from ballot.” Monetti and Petersen are expected to participate in a Senate candidate forum Friday night at Rockwood Summit High, 1780 Hawkins Road, in Fenton. Radio host Jamie Allman, formerly of KFTK, is expected to emcee, with Ed Martin, a former Republican state chairman and former CNN commentator, asking questions. Sykes has also signed up, but Hawley, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, will not attend. Hawley will be at a campaign event in Sikeston, his communications director, Kelli Ford, said. McCaskill has built a huge fundraising lead over all of her challengers, raising almost $18.5 million through March, and showing $11.7 million in the bank as of April 1.

Lawmakers OK bill on juvenile ofenders 17-year-olds wouldn’t be tried as adults in most cases under new measure BY JACK SUNTRUP St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • Missouri lawmakers on Thursday gave final approval to legislation which would allow 17-year-old defendants to be tried as juveniles in most cases. Pending a signature from Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican, Missouri would join

more than 40 other states that have raised to 18 the age for which defendants can be tried as adults. The change was among several criminal justice reforms legislators gave final approval to on Thursday as they cranked into high gear in advance of the closing week of the state’s annual legislative session. As part of the juvenile justice legislation, lawmakers also approved boosting criminal penalties for those who patronize prostitution of a minor. Minors tried for prostitution would also be able to use evidence that they were coerced into performing sex acts as a defense in court. Lawmakers also signed off on a mea-

sure that makes it a felony to intentionally publish online a photo or video of someone’s naked or partially naked body without their permission. It also outlaws threatening to do so in order to prevent someone from doing something or to gain something of value. Proponents of the “raise the age” legislation argued that offenders who are funneled into the criminal justice system rather than the juvenile justice system are more likely to commit additional crimes. They also argued that parents of 17-year-olds tried as adults lose parental rights when their children are taken into custody.

“This is going to keep our streets safer,” said Rep. Nick Schroer, R-O’Fallon, who sponsored a version of the legislation. “It’s going to keep our communities safer — preserve the parental rights — because as of right now these 17-year-olds have no right to have their parents speak up for them.” The juvenile justice changes are set to take efect in 2021 if the measure becomes law. The revenge porn bill is House Bill 1558. The juvenile justice and prostitution changes are contained in Senate Bill 793.

Air ambulance bill draws criticism from industry BY SAMANTHA LISS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Some industry groups say Sen. Claire McCaskill’s efforts to curb costly air ambulance bills would have unintended consequences for patients. McCaskill, D-Mo., introduced legislation Thursday that would give states the authority to regulate the medical costs of air ambulances. The legislation would force air ambulances to clearly separate the medical costs from the transportation costs on a patient’s bills. Her bill would partially carve out air ambulances from federal legislation, which has hindered state agencies from intervening when patients are hit with large bills. A group that’s campaigning for increased reimbursement for air medical services, says the bill would have “devastating” consequences for patients by allowing the possibility for diferent rules to exist in diferent states. “In short, this seemingly small change could have a devastating effect on patients facing life-threatening emergencies, their access to care, and ultimately, their health outcomes. And it does nothing to address the issue of patient bills,” said Carter Johnson, a spokeswoman for SOAR, an acronym for Save Our Air Medical Resources. The group is critical of insurance providers. They say insurers are not agreeing to fair and reasonable pricing agreements. “First, insurers need to do right by their patients and cover these life-saving services,” Johnson said. She also said they need to drop contract language that

“gives them power to overrule medical decisions by doctors and first-responders who deploy air ambulances.” The Post-Dispatch has found numerous cases where insurers pay only a portion of the bill. In many cases, the air ambulance is out-of-network, which means the insurer and provider have not agreed to pricing terms, leaving the patient stuck in the middle. The legislation follows a Post-Dispatch report on a family whose son was airlifted to a trauma hospital after sufering a skull fracture, leaving them with an

outstanding bill of about $32,000. That was followed by a story about at least 10 other families stuck with air ambulance bills ranging from $27,000 to $51,000. McCaskill’s office defended its measure, noting that the legislation was already passed with bipartisan support in the House reauthorization bill for the Federal Aviation Administration. The office also says the measure “would have a real and positive impact on consumers, allow greater transparency and oversight to an industry that has so far operated

with little to none in terms of exorbitant costs, while keeping important federal aviation safety standards in place.” Johnson’s group is backing a diferent piece of legislation that would increase reimbursement to air ambulance providers who say Medicare rates are too low. Without proper reimbursement, the group says some air ambulances providers have stopped operating, leaving rural communities at greater risk.

housands of Facebook ads show From home in Arizona, McCain weighs in Russian eforts to stoke division

to oppose CIA nominee

Democrats release 3,500 advertisements created by Russian agency

Former prisoner of war says Haspel’s role in 9/11 interrogations is ‘disturbing’

BY MARY CLARE JALONICK associated Press

WASHINGTON • Democrats on the House intelligence committee have released more than 3,500 Facebook ads that were created or promoted by a Russian internet agency, providing the fullest picture yet of Russia’s attempt to sow racial and political division in the United States before and after the 2016 election. Most of the ads are issuebased, pushing arguments for and against immigration, LGBT issues and gun rights, among other issues. A large number of them attempt to stoke racial divisions by mentioning police brutality or disparaging the Black Lives Matter movement. Some promote President Donald Trump or Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary. Few, if any, support Clinton. The intelligence committee Democrats released a sampling of the ads purchased by Russia’s Internet Research Agency last year, but they are now releasing the full cache of ads that Facebook oicials turned over to the panel after acknowledging in September they had discovered the Russian efforts. The release of ads from early 2015 through mid2017 does not include 80,000 posts that the agency also shared. Some of the ads are partially redacted, part of an efort by Facebook and the committee to protect unsuspecting people whose names or faces were used. An Associated Press review of the thousands of ads and their data shows how precisely — and sometimes randomly — the agency targeted them. Some ads designed to appeal to critics of immigration were targeted to users who liked specific Fox News hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the United States Constitution.

WASHINGTON • As the Senate

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rep. Adam Schif, D-Calif., who is on the House intelligence committee, said Thursday he was releasing thousands of Facebook ads aimed at sowing discord in the U.S. to prevent it from happening again.

Others were more narrowly targeted. Facebook users within 12 miles of Buffalo, N.Y., were directed to an event supporting justice for a black woman who died in a county jail. Another ad criticizing a Texas schoolteacher who lost her job after making racist remarks was aimed at adults living in Cleveland, Baltimore, St. Louis and Ferguson. Sometimes the targeting appeared to work — after a try or two. A January 2016 ad that promised news on “bad” refugees got five clicks when targeted at those interested in immigration or conservatism. But the same ad got 163 clicks when targeted at those interested in Syria, the Republican Party or politics. Others got many more clicks. A pro-patriotism ad created on June 23, 2015, featuring a stylized drawing of a bald eagle was viewed nearly 530,000 times and was clicked on 72,000 times. Facebook revealed in September that it had discovered the divisive ads, which were paid for in rubles. Ads were still running in August 2017, weeks before Facebook made the efort public. In February, special counsel

Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians of an elaborate plot to disrupt the 2016 presidential election, charging several people associated with the Internet Research Agency with running a huge but hidden social media trolling campaign aimed in part at helping Trump defeat Clinton. The indictment was part of Mueller’s investigation into Russian intervention in the election and whether Trump’s campaign was involved. There has been no evidence that Trump’s campaign was in any way associated with the social media efort. The trove of ads released Thursday appears to back the assertion that the Russians wanted to hurt Clinton. Facebook has said that more than 10 million people in the United States saw the ads, more than half of which ran after the election. Under fire from Congress, the social media giant has pledged improvements to its ad policies and enforcement. Rep. Adam Schif of California, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, said he was releasing the ads so it doesn’t happen again.

began considering Gina Haspel’s nomination to head the CIA, one voice was noticeably missing. Republican Sen. John McCain remained at home in Arizona battling brain cancer as Wednesday’s debate turned to the past use of enhanced interrogation techniques, now banned, that President Donald Trump has suggested perhaps should return. Haspel, the CIA’s acting director and a career intelligence officer, faced grilling about her role overseeing some CIA operations in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Some senators asked about her morals. Haspel told them she doesn’t believe torture works. The absence of McCain, a Navy pilot who was tortured in captivity during the Vietnam War, hung over the conversation. What he would have to say about Haspel mattered. But not until Washington had all but finished for the evening did he finally weigh in. “I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country and has devoted her professional life to its service and defense,” he said in a statement. “However, Ms. Haspel’s role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing. Her refusal to acknowledge torture’s immorality is disqualifying.” He added, “The Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination.” McCain’s opinion will certainly influence the debate,

And McCain’s close friend and longtime ally, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has said he expects Haspel will be confirmed. McCain led efforts during the George W. Bush administration to end the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques. “Like many Americans, I understand the urgency that drove the decision to resort to so-called enhanced interrogation methods after our country was attacked,” McCain said Wednesday. Haspel, he said, was ofered an opportunity to explain her involvement and “account for the mistakes the country made in torturing detainees.” McCain said he remained unsatisfied with Haspel’s responses.

housands of Facebook ads show From home in Arizona, McCain weighs in Russian eforts to stoke division

to oppose CIA nominee

Democrats release 3,500 advertisements created by Russian agency

Former prisoner of war says Haspel’s role in 9/11 interrogations is ‘disturbing’

BY MARY CLARE JALONICK associated Press

WASHINGTON • Democrats on the House intelligence committee have released more than 3,500 Facebook ads that were created or promoted by a Russian internet agency, providing the fullest picture yet of Russia’s attempt to sow racial and political division in the United States before and after the 2016 election. Most of the ads are issuebased, pushing arguments for and against immigration, LGBT issues and gun rights, among other issues. A large number of them attempt to stoke racial divisions by mentioning police brutality or disparaging the Black Lives Matter movement. Some promote President Donald Trump or Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ran against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary. Few, if any, support Clinton. The intelligence committee Democrats released a sampling of the ads purchased by Russia’s Internet Research Agency last year, but they are now releasing the full cache of ads that Facebook oicials turned over to the panel after acknowledging in September they had discovered the Russian efforts. The release of ads from early 2015 through mid2017 does not include 80,000 posts that the agency also shared. Some of the ads are partially redacted, part of an efort by Facebook and the committee to protect unsuspecting people whose names or faces were used. An Associated Press review of the thousands of ads and their data shows how precisely — and sometimes randomly — the agency targeted them. Some ads designed to appeal to critics of immigration were targeted to users who liked specific Fox News hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the United States Constitution.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rep. Adam Schif, D-Calif., who is on the House intelligence committee, said Thursday he was releasing thousands of Facebook ads aimed at sowing discord in the U.S. to prevent it from happening again.

Others were more narrowly targeted. Facebook users within 12 miles of Buffalo, N.Y., were directed to an event supporting justice for a black woman who died in a county jail. Another ad criticizing a Texas schoolteacher who lost her job after making racist remarks was aimed at adults living in Cleveland, Baltimore, St. Louis and Ferguson. Sometimes the targeting appeared to work — after a try or two. A January 2016 ad that promised news on “bad” refugees got five clicks when targeted at those interested in immigration or conservatism. But the same ad got 163 clicks when targeted at those interested in Syria, the Republican Party or politics. Others got many more clicks. A pro-patriotism ad created on June 23, 2015, featuring a stylized drawing of a bald eagle was viewed nearly 530,000 times and was clicked on 72,000 times. Facebook revealed in September that it had discovered the divisive ads, which were paid for in rubles. Ads were still running in August 2017, weeks before Facebook made the efort public. In February, special counsel

‘HE’S DYING ANYWAY’ A White House official dismissed McCain’s opinion about Haspel, saying Thursday at a staff meeting that “it doesn’t matter” because “he’s dying anyway,” two people in the room told The Associated Press. The two people described feeling shocked by aide Kelly Sadler’s remark. They spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss the closed-door communications staf meeting. The White House did not dispute the remark. In a statement, they said, “We respect Senator McCain’s service to our nation, and he and his family are in our prayers during this diicult time.” Sadler is a special assistant to the president. She did not respond to a request for comment Thursday evening. McCain’s wife, Cindy, responded with a tweet tagged to Sadler, “May I remind you my husband has a family, 7 children and 5 grandchildren.”

Senior oicials cited two lower-level oicers for poorly planning operations with Nigerien forces but did not recommend disciplinary action. Marine Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, who heads U.S. Africa Command, said the team of 11 Americans involved in the ireight was inadequately prepared even before it stepped of its base for the ill-fated mission near the village of Tongo Tongo. The four Americans killed were Staf Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, Staf Sgt. Bryan Black, Staf Sgt. Dustin Wright and Sgt. La David Johnson.

Volcano could spew refrigerator-size boulders • If Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano blows its top in the coming days or weeks, as experts fear, it could hurl ash and boulders the size of refrigerators miles into the air, shutting down airline traic and endangering lives, scientists said Thursday. “If it goes up, it will come down,” said Charles Mandeville, volcano hazards coordinator for the U.S. Geological Survey. “You don’t want to be underneath anything that weighs 10 tons when it’s coming out at 120 mph.” The volcano, which has been spitting lava for a week, has destroyed more than two dozen homes.

Exit International, the group that helped David Goodall carry out his wish, said the scientist was declared dead at 12:30 p.m. in Liestal, a town outside the city of Basel, where he had traveled to take advantage of Switzerland’s assistedsuicide laws. “My life has been rather poor for the last year or so.

shortly after. The British-born scientist said this week that he had been contemplating the idea of suicide for about 20 years, but only started thinking about it for himself after his quality of life deteriorated over the last year. He cited a lack of mobility, doctor’s restrictions and an Australian law prohibiting him from taking his own life among his complaints, but he was not ill. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, where the procedure is available for anyone who acknowledges in writing that they are taking their lives willingly — without being forced. But the practice is frowned upon by many

doctors and some others who say it should be reserved for the terminally ill. Goodall and his supporters want the practice to be more accepted as a legitimate choice for elderly people in sound mind. On Wednesday, Goodall told a crowded news conference that medically assisted suicide should be more widely available. “At my age, and even at rather less than my age, one wants to be free to choose the death and when the death is the appropriate time,” he said. Hundreds of people — some far more frail than Goodall, who used a wheelchair — travel to Switzerland every year to take their lives. The bestknown group to help foreigners end their days in the Alpine country is Dignitas, but others include Life Circle in Basel, Goodall’s choice. Goodall took his life with an intravenous drip of pentobarbital, a chemical often used as an anesthetic but which is lethal in excessive doses. A doctor put a cannula in his arm, and Goodall turned a wheel to allow the solution to flow, Exit International said. Philip Nitschke, director of Exit International, said that before activating the drip, Goodall had to answer “several questions so he knew who he was, where he was and what he was about to do.” “He answered those questions with great clarity, activated the process” while Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony played in the background, he added. His last words before losing consciousness were “this is taking an awfully long time,” Nitschke said, but “he died shortly thereafter.” Exit International said Goodall had requested that his body be donated to medicine, or his ashes sprinkled locally. “He wishes to have no funeral, no remembrance service or ceremony,” the group said in a statement. “David has no belief in the afterlife.” Basel City Councilwoman Annemarie Pfeifer, a leading critic of assisted suicide advocacy groups, fears that widening assisted suicide beyond the terminally ill could one day lead to “pressure” being exerted on the infirm elderly to end their lives. “We must be very careful with life,” she said. “It’s not good for my city if Basel has a reputation as a city of death.” The Swiss federal statistics office says the number of assisted suicides has been growing fast: Nine years ago, there were 297. By 2015, the most recent year tabulated, the figure had more than tripled to 965. Nearly 15 percent of the cases last year were people under 65 years old.

Singapore seen as a neutral host Detainees face torture, labor in N. Korea prisons

TRUMP • FROM A1

Final details in place, Trump and Kim agreed to the first face-to-face North Korea-U.S. summit since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. It’s the most consequential and perhaps riskiest foreign policy effort so far in Trump’s presidency as North Korea’s nuclear program approaches a treacherous milestone — the capacity to strike the continental U.S. with a thermonuclear warhead. Trump says the U.S. is aiming for “denuclearization” of the entire Korean peninsula, but he has yet to fill in just what steps that might include and what the timing would be. “We’re starting off on a new footing,” Trump said of himself and Kim as he welcomed the detainees in a ceremony at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington. He hailed their release as a potential breakthrough in relations between the adversary nations. He and Kim “will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” he said of the summit later on Twitter. He told his rally crowd, “I think it’s going to be a very big success.” Kim has suspended nuclear and missile tests and put his nuclear program up for negotiation, but questions remain about how serious his offer is and what disarmament steps he would be willing to take. The White House has said withdrawal of thousands of U.S. troops from South Korea is “not on the table.” Before dawn Thursday, with the former detainees by his side, Trump said it was a “great honor” to welcome them back to the U.S. but “the true honor is going to be if we have a victory in getting rid of nuclear weapons.” He had wanted to hold the summit in the demilitarized zone between the

before his meeting with North Korea’s leader. Fowle has said that he was treated well physically by his captors but sufered from not knowing what was happening with his family. Others had more grueling experiences. Aijalon Gomes was imprisoned for illegally crossing into North Korea from China in 2010 and sentenced to eight years of hard labor. The American, who was released in 2011, said he tried to commit suicide while in captivity. Last year, Gomes burned to death in a field in San Diego. The medical examiner said Gomes committed suicide. Otto Warmbier was imprisoned for trying to steal a political banner. He was flown back to the United States last year in a vegetative state and died soon afterward. What caused the coma is unknown. Journalist Laura Ling, arrested for illegally entering North Korea, said she was first held in a small cell that was enveloped in total darkness when jailers closed slats on the doors. She told CBS News that she was grateful she wasn’t sent to a labor camp. Former prisoner Kenneth Bae told CNN after his release in 2014 that he worked from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., farming in fields, carrying rocks and shoveling coal. That appears similar to the forced labor that political prisoners must perform, said Francisco Bencosme, Asia Advocacy manager of Amnesty International USA. Prisoners are also sometimes tortured, starved and executed, he said. A United Nations Commission of Inquiry estimated in 2014 that between 80,000 and 120,000 political prisoners were being detained. Amnesty International USA urged Trump to include human rights issues in his June 12 summit with Kim in Singapore.

3 newly released prisoners are to be evaluated by U.S. doctors BY ANDREW SELSKY Associated Press

Americans held in North Korean prisons have endured hard labor, some were kept at times in total darkness under conditions so bleak that one prisoner tried to kill himself, and succeeded in doing so after his release. President Donald Trump said early Thursday when he welcomed three Americans home that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un “was excellent to these three incredible people.” But some other Americans who were imprisoned in North Korea described harsh experiences, mirroring what more than 100,000 political prisoners may be enduring there each day. When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s plane carrying the three released prisoners made a refueling stop in Anchorage, one of them asked to go outside, saying he hadn’t seen daylight in a long time. After landing at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim flashed peace signs and waved their arms as they emerged from the aircraft. They were taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which said it’s giving them time to decompress. The military hospital said reuniting them with families too soon can “cause additional psychological stress.” Jeffrey Fowle, who was held in North Korea for six months in 2014 after intentionally leaving a Bible in a nightclub, said he thinks Trump’s words were “more diplomacy than anything else, trying to improve the atmosphere”

two Koreas but yielded to the concerns of officials who thought a DMZ meeting would focus attention on relations between the North and South rather than the nuclear question. Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, other oicials and first lady Melania Trump joined the president for the air base celebration. The former detainees — Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim — had been released Wednesday at the end of Pompeo’s visit to North Korea. They appeared tired but in excellent spirits, flashing peace signs and waving their arms as they emerged from the aircraft. One said through a translator, “It’s like a dream; we are very, very happy.” Pence said Pompeo had told him that at a refueling stop in Anchorage, “one of the detainees asked to go outside the plane because he hadn’t seen daylight in a very long time.” The men were taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for evaluation before being reunited with their families.

Trump thanked North Korean leader Kim for releasing the Americans and said, “I really think he wants to do something” on denuclearization. Pence said on NBC News, “In this moment the regime in North Korea has been dealing, as far as we can see, in good faith.” Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, who was among several Republican lawmakers who dined with Trump and national security adviser John Bolton on Wednesday before the detainees returned, said their release was a positive development, but he remained cautious about North Korea’s intentions. “We are in uncharted waters,” he said. “This is the highest level diplomacy that the United States has to ofer. Failure would be a significant setback to diplomatic eforts.” As for the venue, why Singapore? White House spokesman Raj Shah said the country has ties with the U.S. and North Korea, meaning both presidents’ security — and neutrality — can be assured. Located at the southern tip of Malaysia, the

prosperous city state is a regional Southeast Asia hub whose free enterprise philosophy welcomes trading partners from everywhere. It has close diplomatic and military ties with the U.S. and yet is also familiar ground for North Korea, with which it established diplomatic relations in 1975. “Since their independence, they’ve very deliberately developed a reputation as an honest broker between East and West,” said David Adelman, the former U.S. ambassador. Shortly after they touched down in Alaska, a statement was released from the freed men. They expressed their appreciation to Trump, Pompeo and the people of the United States and added: “We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return. God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world.” North Korea had accused the three of antistate activities. But their arrests were seen as politically motivated and had compounded the dire state of relations over the nation’s nuclear weapons.

Tension between Israel, Iran escalates into airstrikes ISRAEL • FROM A1

the new exchange each seemed to be sending a warning that a direct clash between them could swiftly escalate. “If we get rain, they’ll get a flood,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned. The scope of the attacks — which Israel called its largest in Syria since the 1973 Mideast war — raised the specter of a fullfledged war between Iran and Israel in Syria, a conflict that could potentially drag the militant Hezbollah and Lebanon into the mix with devastating effects, although both sides appeared to signal they wanted the confrontation to remain contained, at least for now. Israel, however, has been emboldened by President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal this week, and the latest escalation seemed to signal a potentially coordinated surge in military activity targeting Iran. The Israeli military said Thursday it hit dozens of Iran’s military installations in Syria in response to the overnight Iranian rocket barrage that targeted Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau that Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war. It was the first time Israel has directly accused Iran of firing toward Israeli territory. Iranian media described the Israeli attack as “unprecedented,” but there was no official Iranian comment on Israel’s claims. Iran has vowed to retaliate for repeated Israeli airstrikes targeting its forces in Syria. But it seemed to carefully calibrate its response by targeting the Golan Heights, which Israel annexed in 1981 in a move that is not internationally recognized, instead of striking Israel proper.

SYRIAN CENTRAL MILITARY MEDIA VIA AP

Israeli missiles soar toward military bases in Damascus, Syria, on Thursday. The Israeli military said it attacked dozens of Iranian targets in neighboring Syria in response to an earlier Iranian rocket barrage on Israeli positions in the Golan Heights.

Tehran is wary of a wider military conflagration with Israel that could jeopardize its military achievements in Syria at a time when it is trying to salvage the international nuclear deal. The recent clashes reveal the difficulty both sides face in dealing with an unprecedented situation, said Jean-Pierre Filiu, a professor of Middle East studies at Sciences Po, Paris School of International Afairs. The clashes will likely lead not to escalation, but to the “consolidation of new ‘red lines’ tacitly endorsed by Israel and Iran,” he said in an analysis written for the Carnegie Middle East Center. The damage inflicted by the Israeli airstrikes was not immediately clear. Israel said among the targets were weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy fire and that none of its warplanes were hit. The Syrian military acknowledged that the strikes destroyed a radar station and an ammuni-

tion warehouse, and damaged a number of air defense units. It said three people were killed and two were wounded. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely monitors the civil war inside Syria, said 23 fighters, including five Syrian soldiers, were killed. It was not clear if any Iranians were among the dead. T h e W h i te Ho u se swiftly condemned Iran’s “provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens” and expressed strong support for “Israel’s right to act in self-defense,” while Russia said the Israeli strikes marked a dangerous escalation and urged both Israel and Iran to avoid provoking each other. Israel has carried out over 100 airstrikes in neighboring Syria since the civil war erupted in 2011, most believed to be aimed at suspected Iranian weapons shipments bound for the Hezbollah militant group. But in the past few weeks, Israel has shifted to a more direct confrontation with Iran, striking at Iranian bases, weapons depots and rocket launchers across Syria. Israel ac-

cuses Tehran of seeking to establish a foothold on its doorstep, something it has vowed never to allow. Israel said early Thursday that Iran’s Quds Force fired 20 rockets at Israeli front-line military positions in the Golan Heights. Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said four of the rockets were intercepted, while the others fell short of their targets.

Dozens are killed as dam bursts in Kenya About 20 victims were children; seasonal rains have left more than 170 people dead BY TOM ODULA associated Press

NAIROBI, KENYA • Villagers

said it started with a loud rumble, then houses collapsed one by one under an approaching wall of water. “We took our children and rushed to higher ground,” farmer Joseph Maina told The Associated Press. Their home was submerged and their crops were washed away, but unlike dozens of others, they survived. At least 44 were dead and an additional 40 were missing Thursday after a dam swollen by weeks of seasonal rains burst in Kenya’s Rift Valley, sweeping away hundreds of homes and sending people fleeing, oicials said. At least 20 of the dead were children. “Many people are missing. It is a disaster,” said Rongai town Police Chief Joseph Kioko. The bursting of the Patel Dam in Solai, Nakuru County, on Wednesday night was the deadliest single incident yet in the seasonal rains that have killed more than 170 people in Kenya since March. The floods hit as the East African nation was recovering from a severe drought that affected half of the country. Almost an entire village was

People gather Thursday near the remains of the Patel Dam near Solai, in Kenya’s Rift Valley. At least 44 people died when the dam burst. Hundreds were forced from homes, and many were missing, oicials said Thursday.

swept away by silt and water from the burst dam, said Gideon Kibunja, the county police chief in charge of criminal investigations. Forty people have been re-

ported missing, Regional Commissioner Mwongo Chimwanga said, while about 40 others were rescued from the mud and taken to local hospitals. The area has seven dams used

by a commercial farm, said Kefa Mageni, an oicial with an advocacy group that helps to resettle displaced people. With the heavy seasonal rains the dams do not have an outlet, he said.

“There are two other dams which are leaking,” one resident, Stephen Nganga, said. He asked the government to investigate them for the residents’ safety. Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi, visiting the scene, said the government had launched investigations to determine the stability of the other dams. Nakuru County Governor Lee Kinyanjui said water from one of the other dams will be discharged to avoid a disaster and that a village near that dam will be evacuated. More than 225,000 people in Kenya have been displaced from their homes since March, according to the government. Military helicopters and personnel in the past week have been deployed to rescue people marooned by the flooding. The burst dam has again raised concerns about the state of Kenya’s infrastructure. The National Construction Authority in the past has blamed contractors of bypassing building codes to save on cost. In April 2016 a residential building in the capital, Nairobi, collapsed during rains, killing 52 people. Last May the wall of a hospital collapsed due to rains, killing six people in Kenya’s second largest city, Mombasa.

A Pentagon spokesman, Marine Maj. Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway, said the U.S. credited Iraqi security forces with the militants’ capture “on the Iraq-Syria border.” President Donald Trump tweeted about the anti-Islamic State raid Thursday, saying those arrested were the “ive most wanted” Islamic State “leaders.” A U.S. national security oicial said there were no indications the operation had captured Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State leader who has long been a top target. Last year the Pentagon said there were “some indicators” that al-Baghdadi was still alive.

As many as 12 people may have been dissolved in acid in Mexico • A drug cartel’s assassins who killed three ilm students mistaken for members of a rival gang and dissolved their bodies in acid also did the same thing to nine others, authorities said.

Navarrete did not say whether any of the DNA matched the ilm students abducted March 19 near Guadalajara. He did say that three of four suspects in the students’ abduction and killing had been arrested.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Level out cobblestone streets to improve Laclede’s Landing Regarding “City in talks to improve Laclede’s Landing access” (May 9): I would also like to make a few suggestions about what would improve Laclede’s Landing for tourists and locals alike. Taking away the stretch of Washington Avenue along with the garage may have made a lovely walking area, but it made it harder to get to the riverfront. There is no real good way to get into the Landing from downtown. One false move under Interstate 44, and you are going across the Martin Luther King bridge to Illinois. When all the barriers were put in, they were to route traffic more efficiently. Now that Washington is gone, it’s just a barrier. The city also needs to pull up, level out and reset the cobblestones. I realize that they are part of the area’s history and charm, but even at the slowest speeds you are in grave danger of bottoming out a car or truck. Every car you see going down the road is bouncing up and down. Part of the problem is with the large trucks that have to supply businesses, and if they can be made to use concrete roads, it might help. There could also be a shuttle from the downtown hotels to the Landing to make it easier to get down there and around the parking lots. If Metro went back to not charging between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., people might go to the Landing for lunch. It worked back in the day. The Landing needs more development, not more surface parking, we need to encourage building in the Landing with parking spaces for the public. It is a gem of the area, and I have many fun memories of time spent there. I think more people should get the chance. Charles Winingham • Alton

successes while being concerned with his credibility aren’t mutually exclusive. John McDonald • Ferguson

Pruitt is a toxic presence in federal government Thanks to Bryce Gray for his article about the local reaction to “top-level turmoil” happening at the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA turmoil raises concern over progress at West Lake Landfill,” May 6). It’s clear that the nuclear waste at the West Lake Landfill should have never been put there in the first place and should have been removed decades ago. Similarly, it’s clear that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is a toxic presence in the federal government who never should have been allowed to lead the EPA and should have been removed months ago. Pruitt’s policies and reluctance to enforce the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act threaten to create more dangerous Superfund sites similar to Bridgeton. The people of St. Louis and the United States all deserve an EPA administrator they can count on to clean up hazardous waste and prevent more toxic tragedies by enforcing anti-pollution laws that are on the books. Pruitt is not that honest broker. He needs to go and be replaced by someone the people can trust. Andrew Heaslet • St. Louis

We can note Trump’s successes and worry about his credibility Analysts frequently report that President Donald Trump’s supporters are ignoring his battles with porn stars and FBI investigators, focusing instead on bright spots like the economy. Conversely, his critics are so appalled that his denials in the legal matters are often contradicted that they’re unwilling to credit the president with anything. Naturally, the reality of this administration is somewhere in the middle. Most Americans applaud such policies as escalating economic growth and a possible breakthrough with North Korea. However, Trump’s need to skew any narrative in his favor — whether petty, such as false claims of inaugural crowd size, or consequential, like his changing rationales for firing FBI director James Comey — is a troubling characteristic and is evident in the investigations. This matters because credible leadership counts; it isn’t critical in normal times but is for an economic downturn, a miscalculation with North Korea, trade disputes, etc. Americans mustn’t worry about spins the president will put on the crisis to make himself look better, thus complicating a solution. Contrary to his acceptance speech, Trump isn’t the only person who can solve our problems, even among Republicans. The president has relied heavily on GOP legislators and, if he’s to remain their leader, they must expect more from him. The party’s leadership, with the evangelical ties of Vice President Mike Pence and legislative muscle of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, certainly has appeal for the Republican base. Helping carry Trump’s personal baggage isn’t necessary. Democracy demands objectivity. Acknowledgment of President Trump’s

Drunken Gummy Bears.

Putting alcohol in children’s candy is bad idea In the Wednesday Let’s Eat section, there is a recipe for Drunken Gummy Bears. Very simple: Take a bag of gummy bears, children’s candy, put in a bowl, cover with vodka and leave at room temperature for 20 hours. Voila! You have adult candy. But how will children know that they should not eat this candy? They will find it. They always find things they shouldn’t eat. And why shouldn’t they eat gummy bears? I believe this is a very bad idea. Adults should keep their hands off the kids’ candy. Dorothy Anderson • Spanish Lake

Poor leadership at Harris-Stowe is rewarded University has a low graduation rate, faces a list of expensive lawsuits. BY BRIAN ELSESSER

We live in interesting times. For many Americans, it seems clear that the standards of leadership have dropped from competence, compassion and accountability to symbolism, bullying and unaccountability. Early in 2017, President Donald Trump met with leaders of HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) for a photo-op and vague reassurances of continued funding. Harris-Stowe State University President Dwaun Warmack spent his state-funded travel allowance to be photographed at this occasion. He walked away with nothing more than a photo and a story about meeting President Trump. The taxpayers of Missouri paid for it, no questions asked. In Missouri, there is no better example of state-supported malfeasance than Harris-Stowe State University. With a graduation rate of 6 percent and an ever-growing list of expensive lawsuits, it is astounding that our state continues to support such incompetence. While it is not often said publicly, it is well-known in hiring circles that degrees from Harris-Stowe are inferior. That’s when the graduates are hireable at all.

For the past five years, HarrisStowe has been graduating students with watered-down versions of the teaching certification program, pushing through students who cannot pass the teaching certification examinations. The degrees are worthless, yet students with this degree outnumber those certified to teach. Without these students, the graduation rate would be closer to 4 percent. Student retention is a perpetual problem. Many of the best students leave within two semesters for better schools. Many others are remedial and not ready for college, yet are encouraged to enroll anyway. These students struggle, accrue debts and often drop out — worse off financially than they were before they started. In 2016, in an effort to curb the loss of quality students, President Warmack recruited out-of-state students using Missouri scholarships. The state Board of Higher Education cited the university for not awarding the scholarships to Missouri students, as called for in the university’s mission statement. A slap on the wrist, but nothing more. Equally disturbing are the number of lawsuits stemming from discrimination, retaliatory termination and lack of due process.

Dwaun Warmack carries The Mace as he walks of stage after being installed as the 19th president of Harris-Stowe State University in 2015. The Mace is a symbol of the dignity and authority of a university.

There have been over 20 cases filed against the university since Warmack became president. It is well-known that Ronald Norwood and the Board of Regents have been trying to delay and settle the cases as they come on the docket. When the university’s counsel was caught withholding evidence in 2016, the attorney general’s office was called to defend the university

in court. They lost, too. Of the cases that have been mediated or tried, 100 percent have been ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and against the university. Missouri taxpayers are on the hook for these damages; payments do not come from the university budget. Worst of all, Harris-Stowe is failing in almost all measurable academic matrices. In 2016, for the first time in the history of any public college or university in Missouri, Harris-Stowe failed to meet four out of five basic performancebased funding criteria. Even after this devastating news, university officials continued to stupidly cheerlead and cover up what has effectively become an academic shipwreck. Warmack, Norwood and their band of administrative charlatans have authorized tens of thousands of dollars for concerts, gala events and pomposity. These public relations and retention efforts have eaten up a larger portion of the university budget than salary increases for the faculty. Those woeful souls, numbering fewer than 30 tenure-track professors, are shell-shocked and demoralized. The fact that the faculty senate has not issued votes of no confidence, while shameful,

Gina Haspel is too qualiied to pass up She has experience in virtually every CIA discipline.

It was one of the Clinton administration’s biggest counterterrorism successes. Just weeks after al-Qaida terrorists trained by Iran blew up U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, Gina Haspel’s phone rang in the middle of the night. She was in her final weeks as station chief in what the CIA describes as an “exotic and tumultuous capital” in central Eurasia, and intelligence had just emerged that two senior al-Qaida associates linked to the embassy bombings were on their way to the country where she was stationed. Haspel swung into action, devising an operation to capture the terrorists. She worked around the clock, sleeping on the floor of her office, as agents tracked the terrorists to a local hotel, where the men were apprehended after a firefight. According to the CIA,“The successful operation not only led to the terrorists’ arrest and subsequent imprisonment, but to the seizure of computers that contained details of a terrorist plot.” For her efforts during the operation, which ultimately disrupted a terrorist cell, Haspel in 1999 received the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in Counterterrorism. This is as much as the CIA has revealed, but according to press accounts, several senior al-Qaida associates were captured in Baku, Azerbaijan, just weeks after the embassy bombings. They included Ihab Saqr, a top lieutenant of alQaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Essam Marzouk, who also worked for Zawahiri and had trained two of the embassy bombers. Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency, had reportedly intercepted

speaks to their fear of retaliation. Administrative bullies have crushed the intellectual culture at the university. There has never been a single graduate course taught on the campus. Now, President Warmack is asking for more money, putting Harris-Stowe on the same funding equation as the University of Missouri. He allied with the local branch of the NAACP to remonstrate on his behalf and ignore the consequences of performancebased funding. While Warmack’s junket to the White House last year did not bear fruit, he still hopes to guilttrip the Missouri Legislature for more money. That may be the one thing he is good at. Meanwhile, the Board of Regents unanimously voted to renew President Warmack’s contract for a total compensation of $324,000. Let that serve as proof that in these times, symbolism, bullying and blame-shifting are more rewarded than competence and accountability. Interesting times, indeed.

signals indicating that Saqr was headed to Baku to meet an Iranian intelligence operative. We should be thrilled that the woman behind this major counterterrorism success has been nominated to become the first female director of the CIA — and only the second person ever to rise to the agency’s top post after spending her entire career in clandestine operations. But instead of being grateful that a seasoned, experienced intelligence operative has been chosen, Senate Democrats are threatening to kill her nomination. This is insane. Gina Haspel is quite possibly the most qualified person ever nominated to lead the CIA. She has experience in virtually every agency discipline, from counterterrorism to counterintelligence and offensive intelligence operations — including personally recruiting spies and directing covert operations. “She has served in some really tough places, high-risk hardship posts, and has performed some extraordinary operations,” said former CIA official Henry “Hank” Crumpton, who was Haspel’s boss in the agency’s National Resources Division. According to a source familiar with her career, Haspel was once deployed in a conflict zone, when military officials from a hostile nation arrived without warning at an event she was attending. As she left, they fired at her vehicle, blowing out a tire. She still keeps the bullet as a reminder of the risks CIA officers take each day to protect the country. She knows their sacrifices firsthand. For her, some of the stars on the CIA’s Memorial Wall represent the names and faces of friends she has lost in the line of duty. “She’s truly a spymaster,” said one retired senior intelligence official who knows Haspel well.“She’s managed intelligence operations against the hardest targets, Russia

in particular. She has earned great respect from intelligence leaders around the world; even people like (Russian President Vladimir) Putin would have to respect her operational savvy.” Yet despite her many accomplishments, colleagues say, she is a paragon of humility with zero political ambition.“She’s never lobbied for a job,” one of her former CIA bosses told me. “The jobs searched for her.” Little wonder that so many senior Obama-era intelligence officials — including Leon Panetta, John Brennan, Michael Morell, James R. Clapper Jr. and Jeremy Bash — have urged the Senate to confirm her. To vote down someone so obviously qualified as political retribution for the CIA’s now-defunct interrogation program would be a travesty. President Barack Obama’s Justice Department concluded that no crimes had been committed. Moreover, as CIA veterans point out, Brennan was himself deeply involved in the interrogation program, and was confirmed 63-34 as Obama’s CIA director, with only two Democrats and one independent voting against him. Why the double standard for the first woman nominated to lead the agency? Democrats complain that President Trump has repeatedly attacked our intelligence community. But derailing Haspel’s nomination would be a greater attack on our intelligence professionals than anything Trump has done. Haspel is beloved by the CIA’s rank and file because she is one of them. Were the Senate to reject her, the nominee’s former colleague said,“it would send a really chilling, devastating message.” Haspel, and the men and women of the CIA, deserve better. Marc A. Thiessen Twitter: @marcthiessen Copyright The Washington Post

As I sat in the hearing room watching Gina Haspel’s confirmation hearing to be director of central intelligence, I felt an overwhelming sense of relief … that Tom Cotton wasn’t nominated to run the CIA. Cotton, a 40-year-old Republican senator from Arkansas and a Trump loyalist, had been the front-runner for the position. But President Donald Trump instead tapped a career CIA operative, and Cotton was on the dais when Haspel testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. Haspel has her flaws. Her lawyerly statements about torture and her role in destroying tapes of black-site interrogators using it did not inspire confidence that she would stand up to Trump if he pressed her to, say, poison Angela Merkel’s Pilsener. But Haspel’s flaws are nothing compared with those of Cotton, who has surpassed Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the most disliked member of the Senate. He used his five minutes of questioning time to “clear up” and to “take exception to” the “entirely false” things his colleagues said, peppering his remarks with gratuitous partisan swipes. And then, he kept going. When Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the top Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, was questioning Haspel about moral standards, Cotton heckled his senior colleague from the other side of the dais. A few minutes after that, when intelligence committee Vice Chairman Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) was giving closing remarks about former CIA director John Brennan’s views on torture, Cotton interrupted again. Warner winced and looked over at Cotton.“Excuse me,” he said. Cotton kept on heckling.“That would be the same Mr. Brennan who supports her nomination!” Chairman Richard Burr (N.C.) hammered the gavel to silence his fellow Republican. “The senator will suspend,” he ordered. Cotton ignored Burr.“We need the full record on the record!” he continued. “No,” Burr repeated.“The senator will suspend.” Cotton still refused.“John Brennan supports her nomination!” he said, before quieting. Such an outburst, and rebuke, is unusual — but Cotton is no ordinary guy. Colleagues and staff on the Hill report that he can be as nasty privately as he is publicly, as uncivil to Republicans as he is to Democrats. He imputes ill motives to those who disagree with him. He served in the military but now treats politics as war. He is, in short, an embodiment of what ails Washington: no compromise, and no disagreement without disagreeability. It was Cotton who went to the White House to dissuade Trump from backing a bipartisan immigration

compromise. When Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) observed that Cotton had become “sort of the Steve King of the Senate,” Cotton retorted that Graham “didn’t even make it off the kiddie table in the debates.” It was Cotton who in 2015 wrote a letter to “the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran” discouraging them from negotiating with the Obama administration. It was Cotton who in 2016 denounced the “cancerous leadership” and “bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings” of then-Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.). And, most revealingly, it was Cotton who blocked confirmation of Cassandra Butts to be ambassador to the Bahamas. Butts died awaiting confirmation, but before that she told Frank Bruni of The New York Times that Cotton told her that because she was a friend of President Barack

Tom Cotton AP

Obama,“blocking her was a way to inflict special pain on the president.” Bruni reported in 2016 that Cotton’s spokeswoman did not dispute Butts’ account. The Haspel nomination is a case in which reasonable people can disagree. Demonstrators portrayed her as “Bloody Gina” the “torturer.” She, by contrast, went full Carrie Mathison in her opening statement, describing brush passes, dead drops, dusty alleys and dismantled cells. In between those caricatures are fair and principled concerns: that she’s allowing declassification only of favorable information about her; that she’s reluctant to say it was wrong to do “enhanced interrogation”; that she’s naive to think Trump would never ask her to do something inappropriate. But Cotton could see only malignant motives.“If Hillary Clinton had won and nominated you to be CIA director, how many votes do you think you would have gotten?” he asked Haspel, in a statement full of partisan invective that preceded his heckling. I asked Cotton’s office if he had regrets about the hearing. Cotton replied to me in a statement: “I regret Senator Warner implied that Gina Haspel and other CIA officers belonged in jail. I regret Senator Reed compared patriotic CIA officers to terrorists. I regret Senate Democrats are shocked when they are called to account. … I regret Senate Democrats are so blinded by their hatred of Donald Trump.” And I regret that this rage-filled man can’t understand that his opponents are not his enemies.

Researchers develop lighter, cheaper robotic hand In tests, prosthetic enabled user to drive, cut with knife BY COLLEEN BARRY AND FRANCESCO SPORTELLI Associated Press

ROME • Italian researchers on Thursday unveiled a new robotic hand they say allows users to grip objects more naturally and features a design that will lower the price significantly. The Hennes robotic hand has a simpler mechanical design compared with other such myoelectric prosthetics, characterized by sensors that react to electrical signals from the brain to the muscles, said researcher Lorenzo De Michieli. He helped develop the hand in a lab backed by the Italian Institute of Technology and the INAIL state workers’ compensation prosthetic center. The Hennes has only one motor that controls all five fingers, making it lighter, cheaper and more able to adapt to the shape

Marco Zambelli demonstrates the use of his prosthetic hand in Rome on Thursday. The robotic hand, unveiled Thursday, is lighter and less expensive than most prosthetics, its designers said.

of objects. “This can be considered lowcost because we reduce to the minimum the mechanical complexity to achieve, at the same time, a very efective grasp, and a very effective behavior of the prosthesis,” De Michieli said. “We maximized the efectiveness of the prosthetics and we minimized the mechanical complex-

ity.” They plan to bring it to market in Europe next year with a target price of around 10,000 euros ($11,900), about 30 percent below current market prices.

ers to myoelectric hands, which to date have been too heavy for some. Italian researchers say the Hennes weighs about the same as a human hand. In the United States, many amputees prefer the much simpler hook prosthetic, which attaches by a shoulder harness, because it allows them to continue to operate heavy equipment, Jayaraman said. Italian retiree Marco Zambelli has been testing the Hennes hand for the last three years. He lost his hand in a work accident while still a teenager, and has used a variety of prosthetics over the years. A video presentation shows him doing a variety of tasks, including removing bills from an automated teller machine, grasping a pencil and driving a stick-shift car. “Driving, for example, is not a problem,” said Zambelli, 64, who has also learned to use a table knife. “Now I have gotten very good at it. I think anyone who’s not looking with an expert eye would find it diicult to spot that it’s an artificial hand.”

About a dozen labs worldwide are working on improvements to the myoelectric prosthetic, with some focusing on touch, others on improving how the nervous system communicates with the prosthetic. “Each group is giving baby steps to help the field move forward,” Jayaraman said. Cost remains a barrier for advanced prosthetic limbs, as well as the fact that the more complex motorized systems tend to be “heavy and fragile. They also get hard to control,” said Robert Gaunt, an assistant professor of rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh. The Hennes design “could make a diference. I think it is a clever approach and one that could see significant benefits for people with missing hands,” he said. Limitations remain the inability to control individual fingers for tasks like typing on a computer. “But the vast majority of what many of us do with our hands every day is simply grasp objects,” Gaunt said.

Senate ills judicial vacancy on party-line vote Wisconsin attorney approved despite objection of Democratic home-state senator ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON • The political battle over

President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees escalated on Thursday when the Senate took the rare step of confirming the nomination of a Wisconsin attorney to serve as a federal judge despite the objections of one of his home-state senators. The Senate voted along party lines to confirm Milwaukee attorney Michael Brennan to fill an opening on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The tally was 49-46. The seat has been open for more than eight years, the longest for the nation’s appellate courts. The Senate gives lawmakers a chance to weigh in on a judicial nominee from their home state by submitting a blue-colored form called the “blue slip.” A positive blue slip signals the Senate to move forward

Tobacco deal eyed as model for settlement in opioid lawsuits

with the nomination. A negative blue slip, or withholding it, signals a senator’s objection and almost always stalls a nomination. Until this year, it had been nearly three decades since the Senate confirmed a judge without two positive blue slips. Brennan’s confirmation marked the second time it has happened this year. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., declined to return her blue slip. The move to go ahead with a hearing for Brennan and a vote had Democrats complaining that Republicans were eroding one of the few customs in the Senate that forced consultation on judicial nominations. They noted that Republicans used the blue slip to block a nominee of President Barack Obama’s for the same judgeship. “I’d admonish my friends on the other side of the aisle, this is a very dangerous road you’re treading,” said Senate Minor-

ity Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “As everyone knows, the winds of political change blow swiftly in America. The minority one day is the majority the next.” The warning was reminiscent of the one that Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell issued when Democrats changed the rules to lower the threshold necessary to end a filibuster for district and circuit court judges. Under the change, the Senate can cut of debate with a simple majority rather than 60 votes. At the time, McConnell, R-Ky., said, “You’ll regret this, and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think.” Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Democrats’ complaints were based on an incorrect understanding of the blue slip’s history. “The blue slip courtesy is just that — a

courtesy,” Grassley said. Still, the blue slip has been in use for more than a century and only a handful of judges have won confirmation during that time without two blue slips. Grassley said that under his tenure, the blue slip will be used to ensure the president consults with home-state senators, but not as a veto for appellate court nominees. He said he was satisfied in Brennan’s case that the White House consulted with both of Wisconsin’s senators. Republicans have made it a priority to confirm the president’s nominees, particularly those for federal appeals courts. For Democrats, it was particularly galling that Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., used his blue slip to object to Obama nominee Victoria Nourse to serve on the 7th Circuit. She eventually withdrew from consideration.

Pruitt to hear economic arguments for Clean Air Act Critics fear EPA may give too much sway to business interests

CLEVELAND • The federal judge oversee-

ing more than 600 lawsuits filed by government entities collectively seeking billions of dollars to address the nation’s opioid crisis said Thursday he will continue to push for solutions to the problem while lawyers continue their settlement talks. U.S. District Judge Dan Polster held an open-court session in Cleveland on Thursday before meeting separately with attorneys for the government entities and those representing drug manufacturers, distributors and pharmacy companies blamed in lawsuits for helping create a crisis that killed 42,000 Americans in 2016. “I still am resolved to be the catalyst to take some steps this year to turn the trajectory of this epidemic down instead of up, up, up,” Polster said. The hope is that a global settlement can be reached. Comparisons have been made to the 1998 settlement involving tobacco companies that resulted in the payment of $206 billion to 46 states over a 25-year period. Polster wants to forge a deal on business practices and funding to reverse the crisis. The first trials, scheduled for March, will be for lawsuits filed by Cleveland and the northeast Ohio counties of Cuyahoga and Summit. Polster said Thursday those trials could be an “aid” to settlement talks. Francis McGovern, a Duke University law professor appointed as a special master to help oversee negotiations, said both sides have been “cooperatively addressing all the issues” during settlement talks while seeking ways “to achieve a resolution.” McGovern said a meeting has been scheduled for July to seek solutions outside the context of litigation. The settlement talks also involve lawyers for about 40 states that are conducting a joint investigation but have not sued and other state governments that have sued but in state rather than federal courts. David Domina, an attorney based in Omaha, Neb., told Polster during the open-court hearing that he came to Cleveland to speak on behalf of Native American tribes especially hard hit by the crisis. He said he would like tribes to be placed in their own “track” for negotiations. “Those people have been marginalized in every significant thing that has happened in the history of the United States, and they want to not be marginalized in these proceedings,” Domina said. Polster said there would be no resolution without the tribes. Earlier this week, Polster ordered the government to share data on opioid distribution and suspicious orders from every state, not just states hit hardest by the crisis. Several dozen people from a coalition of groups representing families and individuals afected by the crisis gathered outside the courthouse for a rally before Thursday’s hearing. Greg Williams, co-founder of Connecticut-based facingaddiction.org, said he hoped oicials will have learned a lesson from the tobacco settlement, which resulted in states “squandering” millions of dollars not related to addiction. “We know what a bad settlement looks like,” Williams said. “We could save thousands of lives if this money is directed properly.”

Rhonda Johnson knows that addiction can turn you into a diferent person. How it can change your body, life, even your name. For years, she inhabited an alter ego named Mary. It helped keep her worlds separate. Rhonda was the mother, the sister, the wife. Mary was the addict, the hustler, the woman who would sell a used pen of the street to get the cash she needed for her next high. During what Johnson calls the “Wild West days of D.C.,” she watched as crack cocaine ravaged communities and contributed to violence that led to Washington’s designation as the country’s murder capital. “I’ve had friends who died. I know people who are locked up. I know people who are hospitalized, put in insane asylums and they have not made it back,” said Johnson, 53, who lives in Washington. “But I survived. I made it out.” Johnson will lead an event Saturday on the National Mall aimed not at crack cocaine addiction, but those struggling with opioids — an epidemic ravaging communities across the country. The “Walk 4 Recovery” is built on the idea that people who have survived struggles with addiction and mental illnesses are equipped to help coach others through similar experiences. “We can’t tell them not to get high. We can’t tell them not to drink. They’re going to go through what they’re going to go through,” Johnson said. “But maybe if they see us and see the struggles we went through and what we survived, maybe they won’t want to.” Almost all of the half-dozen people on a committee for Saturday’s event lived through the D.C. crack epidemic. Several were addicts themselves. Others had addicted friends or family members. Johnson suffers from co-occurring disorders — a label given to those who suffer from mental illness and abuse drugs or alcohol. Nearly 8 million adults in the United States have co-occurring disorders, according to 2014 data from the Department of Health and Human Services. Johnson, a manic depressive with borderline personality disorder, spent decades addicted to drugs and alcohol, beginning with marijuana at age 8. It took nearly four decades to receive proper treatment. She said Saturday’s walk and “stigmafree” fair will address addiction, mental health and other conditions that tend to occur simultaneously, such as homelessness, incarceration, suicide and abuse. “If you have co-occurring disorders, it’s not the one thing, so you have an uphill journey and it’s not a one-size-fitsall recovery,” Johnson said. “When you’re addicted, you’re hiding. You’re hiding behind a mask, you’re hiding behind the drugs to mask the pain. Once I could actually figure out who I was, the real healing began.” Crack hit Washington, D.C., in the mid-1980s, bringing a deluge of cheap and powerful drugs. Smoking the small,

rocklike drug gives users an intense rush, a euphoric high, but it doesn’t last long. Crack users return again, and again, desperate for more. In 1986, the federal government enacted tougher sentencing guidelines for crack ofenders. Three years later, President George Bush announced a renewed war on drugs, with “more prisons, more courts and more prosecutors.” Today, national alarm over opioid abuse and addiction has led to President Donald Trump declaring a national health crisis and diverting more funding to research and state resources. Opioids gained traction in white suburban and rural areas where people were overdosing on prescription opiates like Percocet and OxyContin. As prescription drugs became harder to get, some turned to heroin. “The conversation around crack cocaine was about violence, murder, escalating crime, the quote-unquote ghetto lifestyle, people of color, and especially black people in urban areas, and that’s obviously a huge contrast to how the opioid epidemic has been addressed and how it’s played out. It’s pretty clearly racist,” said Kaitlyn Boecker, policy manager at the Drug Alliance Network. “When crack was in the news, there wasn’t a lot of sympathy or empathy. Now, what we’re seeing is an outpouring of sympathy and empathy for the opioid user.” Johnson routinely speaks in front of federal lawmakers on the nation’s drug policies and response to the opioid epidemic. She’s usually the only person to bring up the ravages of crack cocaine, she said. “I’m there to remind them, ‘You didn’t get the first epidemic right, so what have y’all learned?’” Johnson said. “Talk to survivors. Talk to the folks who lived through the crack cocaine epidemic. We are survivors. We have some experience and some solutions that can help.” The rate of mortality among opioid abusers far exceeds that of crack addicts, even during its peak. In 1988, nearly 2,300 people died from cocaine overdoses, according to federal data. In 2016, opioids — including prescription drugs, heroin and fentanyl — killed more than 42,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As of Thursday, about 200 people had registered to participate in the 2.7mile walk, which is meant to memorialize those who have died from substance abuse.

WASHINGTON • Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt on Thursday announced a major shift in enforcement of the Clean Air Act to include feedback from state and local governments and others on the economic impact of federal pollution limits. The initiative sets the stage for potential legal battles over how the United States enforces the 48-year-old law combating air pollution. Federal law and U.S. Supreme Court decisions require the EPA to focus on public health — not costs — in setting limits for smog, soot and other pollutants under the Clean Air Act. Pruitt said the overhaul was part of his drive to give states and local governments more say in environmental decisions. But a former chairman of EPA science advisory committees called it worrisome. “The Clean Air Act does not call for a balancing of benefits and costs” in setting federal limits for pollutants, said M. Granger Morgan, who led EPA advisory panels under Republican and Democratic administrations. “It calls for protecting the health of Americans.” Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA and its administrators are charged with regularly reviewing the allowable limits for certain pollutants. The maximum levels for smog would be the first to come up for review, by October 2020, under the new procedure, the EPA said. Under the changes announced by Pruitt, EPA will ask its advisory committees to consider and advise Pruitt on how enforcement afects the economy, health and welfare, energy and society, and will seek input from state and local government, American Indian tribes and others on pollution limits. “The principles laid out in this memorandum will reform the process for setting national air quality standards in a manner consistent with cooperative federalism and the rule of law,” Pruitt said in a statement. Thursday’s announcement underscores the EPA chief’s role in fulfilling President Donald Trump’s directives to roll back regulations. The changes, which the agency called a “back-to-basics” approach to regulating pollution from vehicles, businesses, agriculture and other sources, comes as the EPA chief weathers a series of federal investigations into spending and ethical matters. Rep. Pete Olson, D-Texas, said “having all the facts” would be helpful for regulators as they set anti-pollution standards that afect wide areas of the country. Morgan, now a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, said another rule that Pruitt adopted at EPA last fall would be key in determining how the changes laid out Thursday play out. That 2017 rule bars scientists from serving on EPA advisory boards if they receive agency grants. Pruitt said at the time the move was meant to prevent conflicts of interest. Critics have said the ban gives business-friendly interests more sway, and scientists less, in advising the EPA.

Set the Record Straight Property tax assessments should be based on accurate information.

roperty tax assessments in St. Louis County are performed by a Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) system that uses government data to determine the value of a property. The quality of this data is often inaccurate or outdated, leading to bad assessments and questionable tax bills. Unfortunately, it’s the taxpayer’s responsibility to ensure this information is correct. One of the primary strategies PAR Residential uses to ind property tax savings is to compare real information about properties to the assessor’s records and correct errors. Oftentimes, there are errors in bedroom and bathroom counts, square footage of inished attics, half-stories and vaulted great rooms, and inished basements. Additionally, construction quality and condition can often be inaccurately relected.

P

It’s also important to make sure the record on the homes the assessor is using as comparable sales to value the property are correct. Incorrect data on a few comparable sales can skew assessments in an entire neighborhood. PAR Residential encourages all St. Louis County property owners to review their real estate records to make sure they are accurate, and get them corrected if not. This will not only improve the accuracy of the assessment, but of those in the neighborhood. The records can be found at https://revenue.stlouisco.com/ias/. Owners will want to review both property information as well as the property sketch. PAR Residential is the largest commercial property tax consulting irm in the metropolitan area. Leave the review to an expert and pay a fair and correct amount for property taxes. For more information, please call (314) 454-0505 or visit parresidential.com.

should have to make such a choice! ARE THERE PLANS FOR SSM HEALTH TO GROW IN THE ST. LOUIS REGION? One of our key priorities is growth and partnerships. Although this is a relatively stable community in terms of population size, we still want to be sure we are providing the services that our patients need. One of those examples is the investment we are making in Midtown in the new Prospect Yards neighborhood – also known as the SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital campus. If you were to drive by the current hospital campus, you would see a giant hole in the ground because we are under construction with the replacement facility that will open in 2020. The current Saint Louis University Hospital has served the community beautifully for many, many decades. I worked there while in graduate school back in the mid-80s. With this new campus, we are making a major investment in St. Louis, and we will continue to be mindful of other ways we can best serve in the community as health care continues to evolve.

It’s a real eye-opener in terms of understanding some of the roots of this crisis. At SSM Health, we are reining our opioid protocols to help people manage their very real pain without opioids and minimize the opportunity for addiction.

The Federal Communications Commission said in a notice on Thursday that the landmark 2015 U.S. open-internet rules will cease on June 11, and new rules handing providers power over what content consumers can access will take efect. The FCC in December repealed the Obama-era “net neutrality” rules, allowing internet providers to block or slow websites as long as they disclose the practice. The FCC said the new rules will take efect on June 11. A group of states and others have sued to try to block the new rules from taking efect. The revised rules were a win for internet service providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. but are opposed by internet firms such as Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc. “The agency failed to listen to the American public and gave short shrift to their deeply held belief that internet openness should remain the law of the land,” FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat, said Thursday. “The FCC is on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American people.” The U.S. Senate is set to vote as early as next week on whether to reject the FCC repeal of the net neutrality rules, but that efort faces an uphill battle. Proponents currently have the backing of 47 Democrats and two independents who caucus with Democrats, as well as Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. With the prolonged absence of Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona due to illness, proponents believe they will win on a 50-49 vote. Sen. Ed Markey said it was “likely” the vote will take place in the middle of next week. On Wednesday, senators oicially filed a petition to force a net neutrality vote and 10 hours of floor debate under the Congressional Review Act. Following the FCC announcement, Markey wrote on Twitter, “the Senate must act NOW and pass my resolution to save the internet as we know it.” The FCC voted 3-2 to reverse Obama-era rules barring service providers from blocking, slowing access to or charging more for certain online content. Once they take efect, the new FCC rules would give internet service providers sweeping powers to change how consumers access the internet but include new transparency requirements that require them to disclose any changes to consumers. If the Senate approves the measure, it would not likely pass the Republicancontrolled House of Representatives. If the legislation were to pass the House, President Donald Trump would be expected to veto it. In February, a coalition of 22 state attorneys general refiled legal challenges intended to block the Trump administration’s repeal of net neutrality. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has often said he is confident the agency’s order will be upheld. Democrats have said they believe the issue would be key in November’s midterm congressional elections, especially among younger internet-savvy voters. Republicans have said the FCC repeal would eliminate heavy-handed government regulations, encourage investment and return the internet to pre-2015 rules.

BUSINESS DIGEST Biotech startup raises $5.5 million • St. Louis-based biotechnology startup Kypha has raised $5.5 million, according to a iling with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Kypha is located in the Cortex innovation district and is developing a diagnostic tool that analyzes inlammation. Kypha is seeking to have the tests used to detect lupus, stroke, traumatic brain injury, preeclampsia, infection, kidney disease and transplant rejection. The money raised was part of a larger $7.9 million equity ofering, the iling showed. Kypha executives did not respond to requests for comment. The irm is led by CEO Chad Stiening, who moved the company from Louisville, Ky., several years ago. Previous investors in the startup include the Missouri Technology Corporation, Biogenerator, and Arsenal Capital Management. Ameren’s proit rises • After posting a loss in its last iscal quarter, Ameren Corporation reported a proit of $151 million for its most recent quarter on revenue of $1.59 billion. Both proit and sales were up when compared to the prior year period, when the utility posted a $102 million proit on sales of $1.52 billion. The increase in earnings relected higher Ameren Missouri electrical service rates that went into efect April 2017 and higher Ameren Missouri electric retail sales that stemmed from a colder winter. Wells Fargo eyes expense reductions • Wells Fargo & Co. on Thursday said it expects eiciency eforts to cut expenses by $2 billion annually in 2018 and 2019, and that the aftertax impact on net income of a regulatory cap on its assets will be less than $100 million in 2018. Wells Fargo gave the igures in an investor presentation posted on the San Francisco bank’s website. It said it expects net interest income to be “relatively stable” in 2018 as projected higher interest rates will be ofset by lower earning assets and increases in deposit costs. The Wells Fargo Advisors investment unit is based in St. Louis. For 2018, the bank said it expects that total noninterest expenses will be between $53.5 billion and $54.5 billion, and between $52 billion and $53 billion for 2019. Both ranges include typical operating losses and exclude litigation and remediation items, the bank said. Investors said this week they were looking for updates on how long the

bank would stay in the regulatory doghouse, and would be looking for details about costs as questions remained about the lender’s ability to grow its balance sheet. A series of scandals over sales and lending practices at the San Franciscobased Wells Fargo has cast a dark cloud over the bank, which previously was known for its ability to consistently grow revenue and earnings in the post-crisis era. It is now under orders by the Federal Reserve to keep assets below $1.95 trillion until governance and controls improve, which has complicated matters as the bank tries to improve its closely watched eiciency ratio measuring costs per dollar of revenue. Last month, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $1 billion to settle with U.S. regulators who said it wrongly layered insurance on hundreds of thousands of drivers and hit homebuyers with excessive fees. It also has paid millions of dollars in ines after admitting it opened sham accounts for customers. Wells Fargo has revamped its leadership since the scandal erupted in 2016 and got a boost on April 24 when directors including Chief Executive Tim Sloan and Chair Elizabeth Duke handily won shareholder support. Key mortgage rate steady at 4.55 percent • The key long-term U.S. mortgage rate held steady this week, providing a lure for potential homebuyers as the spring buying season goes forward. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30-year, ixed-rate mortgages was 4.55 percent, unchanged from last week. The benchmark rate rose steadily for most of April, reaching its highest level in more than four years. By contrast, the rate averaged 4.05 percent a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, ixed-rate loans declined slightly to 4.01 percent from 4.03 percent last week. Despite higher borrowing costs and home prices, demand for home purchases has grown in the spring buying season as the economic outlook has continued to improve and bolstered consumer conidence. Homes sold at a solid annual pace of 5.6 million in March, the National Association of Realtors reported last week, even though the number of houses for sale has plunged. As a result, average home prices are rising at more than twice the pace of wages. From staf and wire reports

Business Bank of St. Louis sold to Stifel, adding to its portfolio FROM STAFF REPORTS

Stifel Financial is expanding its banking portfolio with the acquisition of Business Bancshares, the parent company of the Business Bank of St. Louis. Financial terms of the deal, expected to close in the fourth quarter, were not disclosed. Founded in 2002, the Business Bank operates from a single branch in Clayton and had about $620 million in total assets

as of March 31, $516 million of loans and $536 million of total deposits. “This acquisition represents another step in the build-out of our banking services in our Global Wealth Management business,” Stifel’s chairman and CEO Ron Kruszewski said in a statement. Stifel Bank & Trust, a unit of Stifel, has grown to over $15.2 billion in assets, led by CEO Chris Reichert. The Business Bank of St. Louis will operate as a

separate subsidiary bank to support the business banking needs of Stifel’s Global Wealth Management clients as well as clients of its Institutional Group. “Combining with Stifel will benefit our existing clients as we expand our lending capacity with additional liquidity and capital,” Larry Kirby, CEO and president of Business Bancshares and the Business Bank of St. Louis, said in the statement.

Tech and health care irms drive more gains for U.S. stock market BY ALEX VEIGA aP Business Writer

A broad rally drove U.S. stocks solidly higher Thursday for the second day in a row, extending the market’s gains for the week. Technology companies, which have led the market this year, contributed the most to the rally. Health care stocks and banks also accounted for a big slice of the market’s gains as investors sized up the latest company earnings and economic news. Crude oil prices rebounded after an early slide. The S&P 500 index rose 25.28 points, or 0.9 percent, to 2,723.07. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 196.99 points, or 0.8 percent, to 24,739.53. The gain turned the Dow back to positive for the year. The Nasdaq added 65.07 points, or 0.9 percent, to 7,404.97. Smaller-company stocks continued to post solid gains. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-com-

pany stocks picked up 7.66 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,603.71. That’s the highest close for the index since January. “They’ve had a good couple of months,” said Tom Martin, senior portfolio manager with Globalt Investments. “The dollar really strengthened here up until the last couple of days, and that is benefiting those smaller-cap companies.” The Labor Department said that U.S. consumer prices rose a modest 0.2 percent in April, a sign that broader inflation pressure remains muted. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, core prices ticked up just 0.1 percent last month and 2.1 percent from April last year. Slower growth in core prices may mean that the Federal Reserve will be less inclined to accelerate interest rate hikes. The Fed has signaled they will lift rates twice more this year, following an increase in March. Some expect that an uptick

in inflation or economic growth might spur the Fed to add a third hike. “It tells us that rates are going to continue to go higher, but maybe it starts to call into question: Are we really going to have four? Maybe three is enough,” said Bob Doll, chief equity strategist at Nuveen Asset Management. Bond investors appeared to interpret the consumer prices data as a sign that the Fed is not likely to speed up the pace of its planned rate hikes. Bond prices rose, pulling the yield on the 10year Treasury note down to 2.96 percent from 3 percent late Wednesday. Technology stocks extended their gains. The sector is up 11.1 percent this year, ahead of all others. On Thursday, Qualcomm led the sector, climbing 3.4 percent to $54.97 after the company’s board approved a $10 billion share buyback. Benchmark U.S. crude oil rose 22 cents to settle at $71.36 a barrel in New York.

Trump drug-pricing speech adds dose of uncertainty Sector expects volatility, but what he’ll say is unknown BY LEWIS KRAUSKOPF reuters

Investors are bracing for widespread volatility in health care stocks on Friday, when U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to give a highly anticipated speech about controlling prescription drug prices. The S&P 500 health care sector has declined about 1 percent in 2018, underperforming the broader S&P 500 by more than 2 percentage points. Investors say concerns about drug pricing regulations have contributed to pressure on the group. Trump’s speech, delayed

from earlier in the year, has injected added anxiety. He has addressed the issue of lowering prices in the past, saying as president-elect in January 2017, for example, that drugmakers were “getting away with murder” in what they charge the government for medicines. “Investors don’t like uncertainty and this speech has created a fair amount of uncertainty,” said Les Funtleyder, health care portfolio manager at E Squared Capital Management. “We don’t really know what is necessarily priced in, what level of detriment to all these industries is priced in.” Health care policy speeches by senior government officials in recent weeks also may have changed the thinking of investors.

“The sense is that the proposals could go a little further than what we have seen in the budget and other places,” said Ipsita Smolinski, managing director at health care research and consulting firm Capitol Street. The speech could affect a broad group of stocks in the health care sector, which makes up 13.6 percent of the S&P 500. “The president never shies away from fiery rhetoric, and we expect that in his speech he will finger manufacturers, pharmacy benefit managers, insurers, hospitals, and foreign countries as responsible for high drug costs,” Height Capital Markets analyst Andrea Harris said in a note. Harris said she expects “material headline risk” to the stocks but that the administration “will not implement

the most material policies that Trump will suggest in the speech in the next two years, if ever.” The health care sector rallied on Thursday, up 1 percent against a 0.9 percent gain by the S&P 500. Shares of companies potentially in the cross-hairs of Trump’s speech closed higher Thursday, including pharmaceutical wholesaler Cardinal Health Inc. and drug-benefit manager Express Scripts Holding Co. Some analysts said on Thursday that investors could be becoming less worried about the speech while others said it was hard to predict what Trump might say. Overall, shares of large pharmaceutical and biotech companies have struggled this year. While companies have endured

product or other disappointments, analysts have pointed to concerns about pressures on drug-pricing as a cloud over the stocks. In contrast, health care sectors seen as immune to such pricing concerns — makers of medical devices and research tools — have outperformed. Friday’s speech may provide some clarity for investors, but the prospect of health care and drug pricing being a hot topic heading into the midterm U.S. congressional elections in November may lead worries about the sector to persist. “Even if we didn’t have a speech, people would be thinking about November and what may or may not happen and wouldn’t be investing with the same gusto that they otherwise would,” Funtleyder said.

State lagged transaction, refused to issue credits MCKEE • FROM B1

for the transaction. But once the state Department of Economic Development, in early 2013, flagged the transaction and refused to issue credits for the interest payments, Osher stopped paying rent and McKee stopped paying interest. The Department of Economic Development eventually recouped the credits for the sale by reducing the amount of credits McKee would have received on other transactions. Yet for two years, despite no rent or principal payments, neither side moved to trigger default. McKee’s NorthSide Regeneration continued as the owner, and Osher continued leasing. It was only in 2015, when the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency was looking to move to a new campus and the city needed to acquire the building as part of assembling a site for the federal agency, that the deal was “unwound,” Carmody said, and the property deeded back to Osher. Since then, Osher has battled the city in court over the value of the building, which the city used eminent domain to acquire. His litigation challenging the city’s value, paid via eminent domain, for his Buster Brown building has shed new light on how a state program many saw as written for one man — McKee — may have been abused. The trial is really over the value of the Buster Brown building — which the city took in July 2016 and ultimately paid a little over $800,000 for. Osher argues its value is closer to $5.5 million and has taken the action all the way to a jury trial. Still, details of Osher’s transactions with McKee have been a key part of evidence and witness testimony. Emails, contracts and other documents obtained via discovery from McKee ailiates and attorneys and those held by Osher shed light on not just the Buster Brown transaction, but other interactions between Osher and McKee. In late 2011, Osher had a letter of intent to sell three buildings to McKee’s company — Buster Brown, another on Magazine Street and another nearby building for about $6.4 million. Two of the buildings Osher had recently bought for $65,000. Osher bought Buster Brown in the 1990s for $200,000. But then, two of the properties were left of of the transaction and only Buster Brown was included. While the original letter of intent Osher signed agreed to sell the Buster Brown building for $3.16 million, the sale price increased to $3.75 million after the two other buildings were left of the final sale. Were the other two buildings left off the final sale, Carmody asked Osher on

the stand, because “the numbers you were talking about would draw scrutiny from the Department of Economic Development?” Osher said he couldn’t recall. Carmody then pointed to an email from Russell Caplin, a longtime McKee associate who worked in finance for the developer’s former McEagle Properties, about the final sale including only Buster Brown. “Obviously it’s not as attractive to either party as the previous discussion, but I think it has a higher likelihood of a good outcome,” Caplin wrote. That good outcome is Department of Economic Development approval, right? Carmody asked. “I assume so,” Osher said. McKee lawyer Lynn Carey at Stone Leyton Gershman said in an emailed response to questions that there was nothing “nefarious” about the timing of the purchase. “In light of the diicult and time consuming negotiation with Osher, NorthSide decided to concentrate on the property most significant to its development activities (Buster Brown), rather than trying to focus on negotiating terms for multiple properties at once,” Carey wrote. An email from an Osher lawyer sent during negotiations asked to include a way to unwind the deal if the state didn’t issue tax credits for the deal “since everything is contingent on obtaining tax credits,” she wrote. McKee’s NorthSide Regeneration project has been controversial since it was discovered the developer was buying up land in beleaguered north St. Louis neighborhoods. The Distressed Area Land Assemblage tax credits to offset land purchases — created by legislation McKee lawyer Steve Stone helped write — helped him amass 1,500 acres north of downtown. McKee eventually won the blessing of the city, which designated him developer of the area and promised future development subsidies if projects started happening. Yet his relationship has soured with City Hall over the years as complaints mounted about the lack of development and deteriorating buildings he owned. One of his construction projects has recently started along Tucker Boulevard north of downtown. McKee argues the NGA wouldn’t have decided to relocate to north St. Louis had he not started assembling land and made the initial pitch to the federal government. But the city was ultimately forced to buy back land it had sold to him within the future footprint of the NGA site. Jacob Barker • 314-340-8291 @jacobbarker on Twitter jbarker@post-dispatch.com

property’s amount of impervious surfaces — meaning areas that do not absorb water — and would eventually need to be approved by a public vote. MSD says the list of unfunded stormwater issues in its service area would cost an estimated $562 million to address over a 30-year time span. If phased in, the tiered pricing system for impervious surfaces would cost an average residential customer $2.25 per month, or $27 annually. The utility’s CEO, Brian Hoelscher, said public surveys helped identify that strategy as “the fairest way to distribute the costs of this program,” and that surfacerelated charges are used broadly in other parts of the country. Proposed uses for the revenue would include buying out flood-prone properties built in hard-hit flood plains. “What we’re recommending is we buy the homes out proactively, as a service,” said Hoelscher, explaining that MSD would start with properties “that are the most critical,” including some in twoand five-year flood plains. The utility says creeks and streams would remain privately owned and responsibility for flood plain management would remain in the hands of local municipalities. Some attendees expressed skepticism or outright disapproval of the proposed charge, questioning why, for instance, the utility’s customer base should bear the costs of problematic flood plain development. Others, though, were supportive of the efort. They say something has to be done to address regional flood issues but want to ensure that money generated through the program is well spent and that it hap-

pens alongside broader changes that shift local flood policies away from repeating past mistakes. “I’m very supportive on one condition: They have to hold municipalities accountable for what they’re doing,” said Michael Carmody, an attendee who is also involved with Save Sugar Creek, a citizens group in Kirkwood that has paid attention to local flood issues. “Why hand out a free pass if they’re going to abuse it?” Carmody says current development and zoning policies in Kirkwood, for example, are guided by outdated flood plain maps that don’t reflect current levels of risk. “Stop right now, get it fixed and then start issuing permits,” he said. “Their attitude is sell and repent. ... Sell it and we’ll repent and fix it later.” Tuesday’s meeting was the first of several public hearings MSD has scheduled throughout the area in the next few weeks. Other meetings at 6 p.m. are scheduled for May 15 in Bridgeton, May 17 in Manchester, May 22 in Maryland Heights and June 6 in St. Louis. The utility will also hold a meeting streamed online at 1 p.m. on May 30. A full list of the sessions can be found online at stlmsd.com/ratecommission. After the series of meetings, MSD’s rate commission aims to make a recommendation to its board of trustees by August about whether to pursue the new stormwater charge. The matter would still need to go to a public vote for approval — a step not expected until April 2019, at the earliest. If passed, the charges would start to kick in in 2020.

founders initially making the product on three home-kitchen-size wale irons. By late 2016, with the business growing and its original home, an STL Venture Works incubator in midtown St. Louis, about to close, Matthews and Rood leased an oice-warehouse space in Ballwin and began figuring out how to scale up. A grant from Biogenerator helped them buy a custom wale-making machine and develop a couple of new products: breakfast sliders, with an egg and beef or turkey sausage between two wales, and an aerosol syrup dispenser. A food company isn’t a typical project for Biogenerator, which usually helps medical or agricultural startups, but Start Right did have a health focus, and Broderick liked the founders. “They’re aggressive and hardworking, and they are dedicated,” he said. “It was worth $25,000 to help them.” Recently, the co-founders have been working 12-hour days, along with two fulltime and two part-time employees, to fill a big order from Midwest grocery giant Hy-Vee. Matthews, who has a commercial driver’s license, and Rood plan to deliver the order themselves to Hy-Vee warehouses in Iowa and Wisconsin. Matthews enjoys hands-on tasks such as flipping wales and driving a truck, but he knows he’ll eventually have to leave them to other people. “We want to be back here,” he said this week while stuffing waffles into boxes, “but we also need to be doing other stuf. Our challenge is to take the next steps to build the business.”

Food innovation scientist Vivian Hor prepares to transfer a mixer full of protein-rich wale batter to the wale irons Tuesday at the Start Right facility in Ballwin.

That means making more sales calls and possibly raising capital to buy additional equipment, such as a machine to automate the packaging process. It also includes finalizing a licensing agreement for a national company to market the patented aerosol syrup can. The crew can make about 1,000 boxes of waffles a day, but that soon won’t be enough.

College students will pay more to borrow money from the federal government this fall as student loan interest rates are set to rise for the second year in a row. Interest rates on federal student loans will climb by more than half a percentage point as a result of the Treasury Department’s auction of 10-year notes Wednesday. The federal government resets rates on student loans every year based on the spring rate of the note, plus a fixed margin. New rates will take effect July 1. Undergraduate students can expect to pay 5.04 percent in interest on new Staford loans instead of the current 4.45 percent. Graduate students will see the interest rate on new Direct loans climb from 6 percent to 6.59 percent. And parents who take on federal debt to help their children pursue a degree can expect to pay 7.59 percent instead of 7 percent. “We are in a rising rate environment, with the Federal Reserve increasing the federal funds rate. ... So [an increase] is not unexpected,” said Mark Kantrowitz, publisher of PrivateStudentLoans.guru, a student lending website. “Possibly contributing to the increase in 10-year Treasury note rates were fears of a trade war and inflation fears due to the U.S. backing out of the Iran nuclear deal.” The new rates are good only for loans taken out to pay for the 20182019 academic year. But because many families have to borrow money every year to cover the cost of college, annual increases in interest rates could become costly in the long run. Until last year, families had benefited from historically low student loan interest rates. The Congressional Budget Oice projected two years ago that rates would start to climb by 2018, with undergraduate rates topping 6 percent, graduate loans hovering around 7.5 percent and the rates on parent loans hitting 8.5 percent. To keep rates on education loans from skyrocketing, Congress has set a ceiling. Interest rates on undergraduate loans can never go higher than 8.25 percent. Graduate loans are capped at 9.5 percent, while the limit on parent loans is 10.5 percent. Lawmakers decided several years ago to tie federal student loan rates to the market, rather than setting them.

same size, is being built for around $10 million, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Self storage has turned into a fast-growing segment of the real estate industry, both here in St. Louis and across the country. More than 11 million square feet of self storage exists on the market today. Approximately 1 million square feet of that has been added over the last three years, according to research from real estate firm Marcus and Millichap. St. Peters City Administrator Russ Batzel said the development is a way for CBL to utilize underserved areas of the mall that haven’t yet been claimed by restaurants or some other use. In a similar move, CBL sold the three-acre site where Planet Fitness now operates to Agree Realty Corporation for $4.6 million in October. CBL CEO Stephen Lebovitz said during an investor call that the company is targeting more outparcel and nonretail uses at its properties, “which allow us to limit our investment by utilizing joint ventures, ground leases or pad sales.” T h e re fo re , s i m i l a r deals could pop up at CBL’s other St. Louis area malls, which include West County Center, South County Center and St. Clair Square. As malls continue to struggle — CBL’s local portfolio reported $67 million in revenue last year, down more than 20 percent from 2013 — Lebovitz said 2018 will be another diicult year for CBL. The 2013 figure includes Chesterfield Mall, which was foreclosed on and is no longer under CBL ownership.

That said, he said he was encouraged by signs of a recovery in the general retail landscape and its portfolio. CBL officials said sales per square foot at Mid Rivers Mall, which dropped from $301 in 2016 to $294 last year, are up singledigits during the first quarter, though specific numbers weren’t provided. A new 21,000-squarefoot H&M store at the mall is under construction and is expected to open later this fall. “We have been doing a lot of H&Ms the last few years,” Lebovitz said during the investor call. And positive demand for a pop-up shop at the mall — an initiative to offer boutique retailers cheap rent for a short period of time — has led CBL to expand the concept by adding a pop-up “Marketplace” — a three-retail merchandise unit configuration is located on the lower level near Macy’s. St. Louis’ stock of regional shopping malls is under intense pressure to evolve as brick and mortar properties compete with various market factors such as e-commerce and changing consumer shopping habits. More than half of St. Louis’ traditional mall properties are in some stage of redevelopment. Many of them are destined for futures drastically different from their apparelfocused past. In the case of malls that will maintain a retail presence, having unique oferings such as restaurants or entertainment tenants to drive foot traic will be vital for developers to sustain success, analysts say.

SAN DIEGO • As he made his usual post-game rounds Tuesday at Busch Stadium, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny spoke with starter Carlos Martinez about his uneven start, and the righthander explained how he didn’t have much of a feel for his fastball. Martinez felt like the area around his shoulder was tight to start the game — and that there was some soreness in it. That was enough to prompt a battery of abbreviations. An MRI on Wednesday led to the DL on Thursday as the Cardinals’ No. 1 starter will miss at least the next 10 days to recover from a minor muscle strain near his shoulder. With two off days bookended around this series in San Diego, the Cardinals can maneuver around Martinez’s absence to only have him miss one start, if he’s ready to return next See CARDINALS • Page C5

There’s plenty of baseball to be played, so let’s concede that point right from the start. Nonetheless, it’s no longer quite so easy to ignore the stagnant offense that we’ve seen from some key Cardinals over the first 35 games of the season. The small sample size isn’t quite so small anymore. The Cardinals have already played a fifth of the season. Heck, they’ll be done with a quarter of the 162-game season by late next week. It’s clear that there’s reason to worry about the ofense.

Goodwin excited for return to SLU Gifted point guard can re-enroll May 21 BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Jordan Goodwin has been crossing off days on the calendar in his head for quite a while. Ask him any day and he’ll tell you how much longer he has to wait before moving

back onto campus at St. Louis University. “Eleven more days,” he said Thursday while waiting to start a workout with a trainer. “I’ve been counting down since I left. I’ll be moving in.” Goodwin can return to campus housing as of May 21, and he doesn’t plan to wait another day after serving a suspension for

violating university policy as determined by a SLU Title IX investigation. He left the basketball team on Feb. 13 after playing in 26 of the Billikens’ 33 games. The 6-foot-3 freshman was transitioning into a point guard for the first time and showing signs of a breakthrough when his penalty became known.

At the time, athletics director Chris May said Goodwin would be eligible to reenroll and return to basketball activities after the completion of the spring semester. The first summer classes at SLU begin May 21. See SLU • Page C3

There’s plenty of baseball to be played, so let’s concede that point right from the start. Nonetheless, it’s no longer quite so easy to ignore the stagnant offense that we’ve seen from some key Cardinals over the first 35 games of the season. The small sample size isn’t quite so small anymore. The Cardinals have already played a fifth of the season. Heck, they’ll be done with a quarter of the 162-game season by late next week. It’s clear that there’s reason to worry about the ofense. The Cardinals must start plotting a trade for three-time All-Star Manny Machado, who would fit perfectly in the lineup in front of slugger Marcell Ozuna. President of baseball operations John Mozeliak, general manager Michael Girsch and their front office staff have put

In 3 ½ seasons with the Sherbrooke Phoenix of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, goalie Evan Fitzpatrick was as consistent as could be. And not in a good way. Each year, his goals-against average was around 3.50 a game. Each year his save percentage was in the .870 to .890 range. Each year he had a losing record. But the new year brought a new team for Fitzpatrick, who was traded to the AcadieBathurst Titan in a Jan. 2 Quebec League deal. And look what happened next. Over the remainder of the regular season Fitzpatrick went 17-4 with a 2.24 goals-against and .915 save percentage. He’s been even better in the playofs. Starting all 18 postseason games for the Titan, Fitzpatrick is 14-4 with a 2.11 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

Warner tosses curveball on FSM QB talks of comeback on Cardinals telecast DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It’s not often someone watching a baseball game on television hears football news from a live interview with a former NFL star. But that’s what viewers of Fox Sports Midwest’s telecast of the Cardinals-Twins game got Monday night when play-by-play announcer Dan McLaughlin was bantering with Kurt Warner. Warner’s improbable rise from obscurity to Super Bowl MVP in his rookie season with the St. Louis Rams was the talk of sports nearly two decades ago and was the springboard to a Hall of Fame career that included two regular-season MVP awards and three Super Bowl appearances. The Cardinals honored the retired quarterback, who still has many charitable endeavors in the area, that night. Warner, now a football analyst for NFL Network who also does some game broadcasts, paid a visit to the FSM booth as part of the festivities and McLaughlin asked him if he missed playing. “Oh my gosh, come on!” Warner said. “Any time you play at this level and you step away from it, especially when you stay connected to it — I think that’s the hard part ... especially (because) I feel really, really good. So I’m like ‘I think I could still play. I think I could still throw it.’” He apparently was not kidding despite the fact he will be 47 by the time the season begins and has not played since 2009. “I was actually ready to (play), for this coming season,” he said. “I actually talked to a coach (with an unnamed team) and my wife said, ‘Go for it, I think it would be great.’ So I actually talked to a coach about possibly doing it if they needed someone. But then they went out and signed somebody. I don’t think they thought I was serious. So I think we’re completely done now” with the idea of playing again. He seemed to backtrack a bit. “I don’t know if I would ever really do it, because it’s easy to sit up here and go, ‘Oh I feel great, I can throw it in my backyard. I could still play in the NFL,’” Warner told McLaughlin. “I have too much respect for the game and those guys. But there have been moments where I was like, I feel so good and I look at the state of the quarterbacks sometimes in the league and (say), ‘I think I could do it better than them if I could get back up to form and spend some time’” preparing. “I’m just hoping that one team, at some point, gives me another seven-on-seven drill. Give me 20 plays and let me see if I can still do it. That’s probably the extent of what I’ll have the rest of my life.”

MCLAUGHLIN’S REACTION McLaughlin said he was as curious as the viewers were about Warner’s comments, because the two hadn’t talked beforehand. Warner came into the booth and “we said hello, shook hands, and he threw on the headset and away we went,” McLaughlin said. “As far as Warner coming back and potentially having the chance to play again? I was surprised but, hey, why not? I think we’ve all come to realize you shouldn’t doubt him. I never will. ... I’m not sure how serious he was and what that would be, but I think it just shows how competitive he truly is. My feeling was that he was just having fun and he loves the game and the competition.” McLaughlin said he got a kick out of the exchange. “I thought it was great,” he said. “He’s one of the greatest sports stories in the history of St. Louis and he’s such a compelling figure. He’s done amazing things both on and of the field in town and I have nothing but the greatest respect for his eforts. Also, he’s incredibly gracious when I have had the chance to visit with him in the past and he’s honest. I thought it was awesome that fans in town got the chance to see him now that he’s a part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

Warner acknowledges the crowd as he’s introduced before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before a game between the Cardinals and Twins.

Cards-Cubs marathon was tough on ratings The Cardinals-Cubs endurance race that started Sunday night and ended just before 1 a.m. Monday was rough on television ratings as well as those fans in attendance who had to get up in the morning. Nielsen reported that ESPN’s telecast of the game on “Sunday Night Baseball” was seen in 0.9 percent of U.S. homes with a TV from the time coverage began at 7 p.m. until 10 o’clock (prime time hours), then dipped to 0.7 for the final hour. In St. Louis, the rating was 10.0 in prime time and 5.1 for the last hour. In Chicago, the prime-time rating was 4.5, the last 60 minutes was at 2.2. The long night, which included two rain delays and 14 innings of baseball before ending in dramatic fashion when Dexter Fowler’s two-run homer gave the Cards a 4-3 victory, drew 1,422,000 viewers nationwide. That ranks fourth out of six Sunday night productions ESPN has had this year. Dan Caesar

McLaughlin wouldn’t mind having a return engagement from Warner — especially if he has a big announcement. “If he officially announces a comeback, I’d be happy to have him do it on our air,” McLaughlin added with a chuckle. “I should have probably let him know that. He’s always invited!”

LOCAL LINE The interview also touched on Warner’s continued popularity in St. Louis a decade and a half after he last played for the home team and how his charitable ventures have touched many. Included are a drive each fall to collect winter coats for the needy, his longtime involvement with Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital as well as his First Things First Foundation. “It’s hard to even put into words,” Warner said. “To have it extend to this day, I think that’s the crazy thing. When you’re going good and you’re winning the Super Bowl ... it’s easy to think, ‘Oh, the fans are going to be behind you.’ They supported us tremendously. We always had a special place for them. But then you leave and especially when you go to a rival team (the Arizona Cardinals) you think, ‘OK the love affair is going to stop, it was great while it lasted.’ The most incredible thing is how they continue to open up their arms and support us in all the things that we do. “More than a decade we’ve been gone and the people here, it feels the same. It feels like they love us just as much. We’ve got a special place in our heart (for the area). All the programs that we do through our foundation are bigger and better now than

they even were when we were in the midst of this community. It’s hard to speak to what these people have meant to us and what they continue to mean to us. And that to me is why I loved my time here so much, because the people were just incredible.” He recalled the early days, when as an unknown he came of the bench in 1999 after Trent Green sufered a season-ending knee injury in an exhibition game and led the previously woebegone Rams to the Super Bowl championship in a year in which the Las Vegas odds of them winning the title were as much as a 250-1 in the preseason. “I came on to the scene and things went kind of crazy,” he said in a huge understatement. “And the people were so respectable and so supportive of who I was as a person and what we tried to do as a family and what we did with our foundation. It’s really what shaped us in the NFL and gave us that incredible experience. “We love coming back, we never get to stay as long as we want, we never get to see all the people that were so instrumental” in getting things going. “... As long as people keep asking us to come back, we’re going to try to continue to do as much as we can to build this community and always be able to keep that relationship.”

MAN WITHOUT A HOME Warner also reflected on the fact that St. Louis no longer is an NFL city, after owner Stan Kroenke moved the Rams back to the lucrative Los Angles market three seasons ago. It’s tough “from the personal standpoint,” Warner told McLaughlin. “When I was here it (football) was the highlight. When I came it was a baseball town. For a few years we made this a football town. ... To see the whole entire community come together when we won the Super Bowl, man there was no place I’d rather play.” He said it is strange when he attends team functions now in Southern California. “I don’t feel like I’m connected to that organization there because my whole (Rams) career was here in St. Louis,” he said. “There will always be a special place and it’s always disappointing to come back here and know the fan base doesn’t get to show up in the Dome or wherever else and support a pro football team. That’s disappointing, but at the same time I’m going to try to continue to support the Rams the way I can.” As a footnote, Warner wrote on Twitter that things continue with a movie project about his remarkable story. Paraphrasing, he said that “for so long I wanted someone else’s story, now I wouldn’t change it for anything.” Dan Caesar • 314-340-8175 @caesardan on Twitter dcaesar@post-dispatch.com

The Winnipeg Jets are headed to the first Western Conference final in their short history after knocking of the NHL’s best team in the regular season. Tyler Myers and Paul Stastny scored 2:06 apart in the first period, and the Jets stunned the host Nashville Predators 5-1 on Thursday night in their first Game 7 — continuing an amazing run for a team swept in its previous two playoff appearances. Stastny finished with a second goal and an assist, and Mark Scheifele also had two goals. Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor each had two assists. Connor Hellebuyck made 36 saves for Winnipeg, which won three of four games in Nashville after missing the Presidents’ Trophy by three points to the Predators. The Jets now host Vegas in Game 1 on Saturday night in a conference final nobody could’ve predicted when this season started. P.K. Subban scored for Nashville, now the ninth Presidents’ Trophy winner in 10 years not to win the Stanley Cup. The best season in Predators history ended earlier than a year ago, but in the same fashion on their own ice. They lost to Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals last June. Pekka Rinne, Nashville’s Vezina Trophy finalist along with Hellebuyck, was chased for the third time in this series after giving up two goals on seven shots. He lasted just 10 minutes, 7 seconds for the quickest exit by a starting goalie in a Game 7. Nashville brought out the star power once again with Sheryl Crow singing the U.S. anthem and former NFL Titans running back Eddie George waving the towel to rev up the crowd. A

couple catfish hit the ice before the puck dropped. The Predators took five of the first six shots, then the Jets stunned the crowd. Myers squeezed a wrister between the post and Rinne’s left skate for a 1-0 lead at 8:40 of the first. Then Stastny put a backhander off Rinne and into the net 2:06 later for a 2-0 lead on just seven shots. Nashville coach Peter Laviolette didn’t hesitate and pulled Rinne for Juuse Saros, trying to snap the Predators out of a slow start while saving his timeout. Subban started a rally with his fourth power-play goal of this series with a big one-timer from Ryan Johansen over Hellebuyck’s stick at 15:54. Subban then pointed to the Nashville bench and once there yelled at his teammates.

In the second, the Jets simply dominated by keeping the puck in the offensive zone and outshot Nashville 6-2. Only Saros making save after save kept it 2-1 until Scheifele’s snap shot for his 10th goal this postseason from the left circle with 2:10 left in the period. That was the first goal Saros had allowed in four appearances this postseason. Stastny sealed the victory with his sixth goal this postseason on the Jets’ lone power play at 11:59. Scheifele added an empty-net goal with 2:33 left.

NOTEBOOK Fisher misses Game 7 • Mike Fisher did not play for the Predators in Game 7 against the Winnipeg Jets because of a lowerbody injury. The team announced Fisher’s

Blues’ prospect playing for a title year. “When I left, I was 13, 14, but it’s something you gotta do to try and make it to the NHL,” Fitzpatrick said. “Every young kid’s goal is to make it, and since I was in kindergarten I always thought I wanted to be an NHL player.” He’s closer than ever to that goal since joining AcadieBathurst. “What are they now, two wins away from going to the Memorial Cup and winning their league, which is just a great experience to play this deep into the spring,” Armstrong said. Game 5 of the Quebec League championship series is Friday. The winner advances to the Memorial Cup series, which also includes the winners of the Ontario Hockey League and the Western Hockey League — plus an at-large host team — playing for the overall championship of Canada’s junior hockey leagues.

BLUES • FROM C1

Blainville-Boisbriand in the best-of-7 championship series in the league known informally as “The Q.” It has been an eye-opening career turnaround for Fitzpatrick, one that has gotten him back on the map as a Blues prospect. “The change of scenery certainly helped him,” Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. “I think also just relying on his instincts again and just enjoying the game after the trade really helped. He was a high prospect when we drafted him and pretty well fell on some hard times there for a little bit and started to doubt himself.” The Blues selected Fitzpatrick in the second round of the 2016 draft, No. 59 overall, which made him the highest-drafted Blues goalie since Jake Allen was taken with the 34th pick in 2008. After being drafted, Fitzpatrick went 16-31 with a 3.46 goals-against for Sherbrooke in 2016-17. Prior to the January trade this season, he was 9-13 with a 3.48 goals-against. It looked much like the prospect was turning into a suspect — until the trade. “He got to an (AcadieBathurst) organization that believed in him, and he’s rewarding them for that trade,” Armstrong said. “He looks like the goaltender that was on Canada’s radar screen at different times for the U18 team and the World Juniors and things like that. The last couple of months have shown that he’s returned certainly to that prospect status.” At the moment Fitzpatrick ranks as the fifth goalie in the Blues’ system, behind Allen, Carter Hutton, Ville Husso and Jordan Binnington. But Hutton is an unrestricted free agent, so it’s uncertain if he’ll return for 2018-19. Allen didn’t become the Blues’ No. 1 goalie until 2016-17 after getting drafted in ‘08. So Fitzpatrick, 20, still has time on his side, and now looks like he may have a future with the Blues after all. “He was struggling earlier in the year, and as I said, I think this trade’s been great for him and great for his confidence,” Armstrong said. “It really has opened our eyes to the player that we drafted. We’re excited now that he’s found some solid footing. “Now, when he gets to the pro

level he has something to refer back to that’s positive. I’m a big believer in, you know, when you want to right the ship you have to look to where you’ve had positive experience. And quite honestly, his junior experiences weren’t as positive as he had hoped and we had hoped until the last couple of months.” It’s been an interesting path overall for Fitzpatrick to get even this far. He was born and grew up on the island of Newfoundland, part of Canada’s easternmost province. The entire province has a population of only about 500,000 and it has a quirky time zone — one-half hour ahead of the Atlantic time zone. (Or 2 ½ hours ahead of Central time.) “When you’re younger trying to figure out what time the TV shows come on, it’s a little tough,” Fitzpatrick joked during his brief stay in Blues camp. Worse yet for young Fitzpatrick, he was hardly living in the mainstream of Canadian hockey. Newfoundland’s relative isolation made it harder to get noticed. As a result, he and his mother moved to Nova Scotia to get seen, with his brother and father staying back that first

KYROU NAMED OHL PLAYER OF YEAR Blues prospect Jordan Kyrou has been named winner of the Red Tilson Trophy as the Ontario Hockey League’s most outstanding player for the 2017-18 season. Playing for the Sarnia Sting, Kyrou averaged nearly two points a game during the regular season, finishing with 109 points on 39 goals and 70 assists. His points per game total (1.95) led the OHL. Kyrou played in only 56 regular-season games because he was part of Team Canada’s gold medal-winning team in the World Hockey Juniors, a tournament played in late December and early January. “It just feels surreal, first of,” Kyrou said of the OHL honor on a conference call Thursday. “To be named most outstanding player is unbelievable. To have my name next to past recipients who have won this award is incredible.” As team captain, Kyrou led the Sting to the best regular season in franchise history with 46 wins and 97 points. A secondround pick by the Blues in 2016, he joins Doug Gilmour (1983) as the only Blues draft picks to win the award. Past winners in recent years include John Tavares (Oshawa, 2007), Connor McDavid (Erie, 2015), and Alex DeBrincat (Erie, 2017). Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Avs sign Alt • The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenseman Mark Alt to a two-year deal. The team claimed the 26-year-old off waivers from Philadelphia on Feb. 26. He played in seven games for Colorado during the regular season but didn’t play in the postseason. Alt was selected by Carolina in the second round of the 2010 draft before being dealt to the Flyers in 2013. His father is John Alt, who was an ofensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Goodwin ready to return SLU • FROM C1

That’s the day he plans to be getting settled with previous roommate Hasahn French, who also was a freshman last season. Goodwin talked about his layof from the university and team but did not want to discuss the situation that led to his temporary dismissal and the departures of three players, who will not return. “The main thing is I’ve been working on my craft,” he said. “I’ve spent a lot of time in the gym and with my family. I’ve been doing a lot of things with my family. I’ve been shooting the ball a lot. I’ve got a trainer, but I’ve got a lot of people in my corner helping.” G o o d w i n ’s s u s p e n s i o n stemmed from the investigation into allegations of sexual assault. However, he was cleared by the university in that regard, according to his father. SLU has not commented on the situation or the outcome. He started for the Billikens from the opening game. When Goodwin left, he led the team in rebounding with 7.5 per game, assists (4.0) and steals (2.0). He also averaged 11.5 points with a high of 28. He posted the first triple-double in school history and came close to two others. Coach Travis Ford said after the season there is no plan to move Goodwin out of the point guard spot. He averaged 33 minutes and was sometimes closer to 40. With a young backcourt, Goodwin is likely to see his minutes remain on the high side. A product of Althof Catholic in Belleville, Goodwin said he has kept a regular workout routine since leaving campus and has maintained his playing weight. At first he said he got caught up in an abundance of home cooking, “but I had to slow down a little bit. I feel I’m in good shape but not where I want to be.” He also has spent some time watching game video sent to him by SLU support services coordinator Michael Wilson, who is in charge of the program’s video operations. Goodwin will arrive around the same time as many of the team’s incoming freshmen, including guards Fred Thatch, Demarius Jacobs and Ingvi Gudmundsson, wing Mickey Pearson and forward Carte’Are Gordon. While living at home with his parents, Goodwin said he has kept in touch daily with teammates via texting or phone calls.

Jordan Goodwin was a bright spot as a freshman point guard for the 17-16 Billikens a year ago.

He also has opened lines of communication with the freshmen. Goodwin will be surrounded by them in the backcourt. Unlike last season when he was being mentored, Goodwin sees a new role for himself. “We’ve got a lot of young guys coming in,” he said. “It’s on us older guys to show them the ropes and how to play with confidence. It’s a long season and we’ll have to stick together to make it through.” The Billikens were on an upswing when Goodwin had to depart. They had won six out of eight and things were starting to click. They then split the next six games with Davell Roby and Aaron Hines at point guard before being eliminated from the Atlantic 10 tournament by Davidson. Three months have passed since that game and Goodwin will have to wait six months before he can play for the Billikens again. For now, he’ll be satisfied being reunited with his teammates. “Time is ticking,” he said. “I’m ready.” Stu Durando @studurando on Twitter sdurando@post-dispatch.com

The Winnipeg Jets are headed to the first Western Conference final in their short history after knocking of the NHL’s best team in the regular season. Tyler Myers and Paul Stastny scored 2:06 apart in the first period, and the Jets stunned the host Nashville Predators 5-1 on Thursday night in their first Game 7 — continuing an amazing run for a team swept in its previous two playoff appearances. Stastny finished with a second goal and an assist, and Mark Scheifele also had two goals. Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor each had two assists. Connor Hellebuyck made 36 saves for Winnipeg, which won three of four games in Nashville after missing the Presidents’ Trophy by three points to the Predators. “The telling stat for me in this series is we played four games in (Nashville) and never lost in regulation against the best team in the league,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. The Jets now host Vegas in Game 1 on Saturday night in a conference final nobody could’ve predicted when this season started. P.K. Subban scored for Nashville, now the ninth Presidents’ Trophy winner in 10 years not to win the Stanley Cup. The best season in Predators history ended earlier than a year ago, but in the same fashion on their own ice. They lost to Pittsburgh in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals last June. Pekka Rinne, Nashville’s Vezina Trophy finalist along with Hellebuyck, was chased for the third time in this series after giving up two goals on seven shots. He lasted just 10 minutes, 7 seconds for the quickest exit by a starting goalie in a Game 7.

Jets center Paul Stastny (left) scores a goal between Predators defenseman Roman Josi and goalie Pekka Rinne during the irst period for a 2-0 lead in a clinching 5-1 victory on Thursday night.

The Predators took five of the first six shots, then the Jets stunned the crowd. Myers squeezed a wrister between the post and Rinne’s left skate for a 1-0 lead at 8:40 of the first. Then Stastny put a backhander off Rinne and into the net 2:06 later for a 2-0 lead on just seven shots. Nashville coach Peter Laviolette didn’t hesitate and pulled Rinne for Juuse Saros, trying to snap the Predators out of a slow start while saving his timeout. Subban started a rally with his fourth power-play goal of this series with a big one-timer from Ryan Johansen over Hellebuyck’s stick at 15:54. Subban then pointed to the Nashville bench and once there yelled at his teammates. In the second, the Jets simply dominated by keeping the puck

in the offensive zone and outshot Nashville 6-2. Only Saros making save after save kept it 2-1 until Scheifele’s snap shot for his 10th goal this postseason from the left circle with 2:10 left in the period. That was the first goal Saros had allowed in four appearances this postseason. Stastny sealed the victory with his sixth goal this postseason on the Jets’ lone power play at 11:59. Scheifele added an empty-net goal with 2:33 left.

NOTEBOOK Fisher misses Game 7 • Mike Fisher did not play for the Predators in Game 7 against the Winnipeg Jets because of a lowerbody injury. The team announced Fisher’s absence Thursday about three hours before puck drop.

Blues’ prospect playing for a title year. “When I left, I was 13, 14, but it’s something you gotta do to try and make it to the NHL,” Fitzpatrick said. “Every young kid’s goal is to make it, and since I was in kindergarten I always thought I wanted to be an NHL player.” He’s closer than ever to that goal since joining AcadieBathurst. “What are they now, two wins away from going to the Memorial Cup and winning their league, which is just a great experience to play this deep into the spring,” Armstrong said. Game 5 of the Quebec League championship series is Friday. The winner advances to the Memorial Cup series, which also includes the winners of the Ontario Hockey League and the Western Hockey League — plus an at-large host team — playing for the overall championship of Canada’s junior hockey leagues.

BLUES • FROM C1

Blainville-Boisbriand in the best-of-7 championship series in the league known informally as “The Q.” It has been an eye-opening career turnaround for Fitzpatrick, one that has gotten him back on the map as a Blues prospect. “The change of scenery certainly helped him,” Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. “I think also just relying on his instincts again and just enjoying the game after the trade really helped. He was a high prospect when we drafted him and pretty well fell on some hard times there for a little bit and started to doubt himself.” The Blues selected Fitzpatrick in the second round of the 2016 draft, No. 59 overall, which made him the highest-drafted Blues goalie since Jake Allen was taken with the 34th pick in 2008. After being drafted, Fitzpatrick went 16-31 with a 3.46 goals-against for Sherbrooke in 2016-17. Prior to the January trade this season, he was 9-13 with a 3.48 goals-against. It looked much like the prospect was turning into a suspect — until the trade. “He got to an (AcadieBathurst) organization that believed in him, and he’s rewarding them for that trade,” Armstrong said. “He looks like the goaltender that was on Canada’s radar screen at different times for the U18 team and the World Juniors and things like that. The last couple of months have shown that he’s returned certainly to that prospect status.” At the moment Fitzpatrick ranks as the fifth goalie in the Blues’ system, behind Allen, Carter Hutton, Ville Husso and Jordan Binnington. But Hutton is an unrestricted free agent, so it’s uncertain if he’ll return for 2018-19. Allen didn’t become the Blues’ No. 1 goalie until 2016-17 after getting drafted in ‘08. So Fitzpatrick, 20, still has time on his side, and now looks like he may have a future with the Blues after all. “He was struggling earlier in the year, and as I said, I think this trade’s been great for him and great for his confidence,” Armstrong said. “It really has opened our eyes to the player that we drafted. We’re excited now that he’s found some solid footing. “Now, when he gets to the pro

level he has something to refer back to that’s positive. I’m a big believer in, you know, when you want to right the ship you have to look to where you’ve had positive experience. And quite honestly, his junior experiences weren’t as positive as he had hoped and we had hoped until the last couple of months.” It’s been an interesting path overall for Fitzpatrick to get even this far. He was born and grew up on the island of Newfoundland, part of Canada’s easternmost province. The entire province has a population of only about 500,000 and it has a quirky time zone — one-half hour ahead of the Atlantic time zone. (Or 2 ½ hours ahead of Central time.) “When you’re younger trying to figure out what time the TV shows come on, it’s a little tough,” Fitzpatrick joked during his brief stay in Blues camp. Worse yet for young Fitzpatrick, he was hardly living in the mainstream of Canadian hockey. Newfoundland’s relative isolation made it harder to get noticed. As a result, he and his mother moved to Nova Scotia to get seen, with his brother and father staying back that first

NOTEBOOK Giants’ Cueto transferred to 60-day DL San Francisco has moved Johnny Cueto to the 60-day disabled list, meaning it will be late June at the earliest before the ace righthander returns to the rotation. Giants manager Bruce Bochy also announced Thursday that Madison Bumgarner will throw his irst bullpen session next week as the star lefthander begins to work his way back from a broken pinkie inger sufered in spring training. The Giants announced earlier this week that Cueto, who was 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA in ive starts, would miss 6-8 weeks with a strained right elbow. Bochy said Cueto perhaps could have returned earlier, but they want to be cautious. Ankle surgery for Nats’ Eaton • Washington center ielder Adam Eaton had surgery on his troublesome left ankle Thursday with no timetable given for his return. The arthroscopic surgery was performed in Green Bay by the Packers’ orthopedist, Dr. Robert Anderson, an expert in the ield of ankle injuries. GM Mike Rizzo says no injury was apparent from MRIs, prompting Anderson to do an exploratory operation. Rizzo says Anderson found and repaired “a little tear” known as a chondral lap that was irritating the ankle. Eaton has been on the disabled list with what was listed as a bone bruises since April 9. He is expected back this season. Phillies are all right • Philadelphia demoted its only lefthanded pitcher, optioning reliever Zac Curtis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and recalling righthander Jake Thompson. The Thursday move left the Phillies with 13 righthanded pitchers on the 25-man roster. Veteran Logan returns for Brewers • Milwaukee reinstated lefty reliever Boone Logan from the 10-day disabled list and optioned righthander Jorge Lopez to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Logan has been sidelined all season with a strained left triceps. The 33-year-old signed with the Brewers in the ofseason after going 1-0 with a 4.71 ERA in 38 games last year in Cleveland. Reds’ Harvey to make Friday start • Cincinnati isn’t wasting any time showing of their new acquisition. Matt Harvey will start Friday night in the Reds’ second game of their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Interim manager Jim Riggleman says Harvey will be limited to four innings because of his lack of recent game competition. The Reds also promoted Nick Krall to general manager Thursday, giving him more responsibilities as the team tries to emerge from a major rebuild. Krall has been an assistant to Dick Williams, who will remain president of baseball operations and oversee the department. Krall has been part of the Reds organization for 16 years, starting as director of the team’s advance scouting preparation. Associated Press

Compiled By PAUL MONTELLA May 11 1904: Cy Young’s 23-inning no-hit string ended. The streak included two innings on April 25, six on April 30, a perfect game against the Philadelphia A’s on May 5, and six innings today. 1919: Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators pitched 12 scoreless innings in a duel with Jack Quinn of the New York Yankees at the Polo Grounds. The Big Train allowed only two hits and retired 28 batters in a row. Future football star George Halas, batting leadoff for the Yankees, went 0-for-5, striking out twice. 1919: Hod Eller of the Cincinnati Reds pitched a no-hitter to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-0. Eller struck out eight and walked three. 1923: Setting several Pacific Coast League records, Pete Schneider of Vernon hit five homers and a double to knock in 14 runs in a 35-11 romp over Salt Lake City. 1955: Ernie Banks’ grand slam: the first of five on the year: led the Chicago Cubs to a 10-8 victory that snapped the Brooklyn Dodgers’ 11-game winning streak. 1963: Sandy Koufax pitched the second of four career no-hitters to help Los Angeles beat San Francisco 8-0. 1971: Cleveland pitcher Steve Dunning became the last American League pitcher to hit a grand slam before the inception of the designated hitter rule in 1973. Dunning’s homer off Diego Segui of the Oakland A’s gave the Indians a 5-0 lead, but Phil Hennigan got the victory as the Indians won 7-5. 1996: Al Leiter, the wildest pitcher in the American League the previous season, pitched the first no-hitter in Florida’s brief history as the Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 11-0. 1998: Kerry Wood of the Chicago Cubs set the major league record for strikeouts in consecutive games (33) by fanning 13 Arizona Diamondbacks in a 4-2 victory. The record for strikeouts in two starts had been 32, set by Luis Tiant in 1968 and matched by Nolan Ryan (1974), Dwight Gooden (1984) and Randy Johnson (1997). 2000: The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 14-8 in the longest nine-inning game in National League history: 4 hours, 22 minutes. The teams tied the major league record set by Baltimore and the Yankees on Sept. 5, 1997. 2003: Rafael Palmeiro of Texas became the 19th player to join the 500-homer club. In a 17-10 win, Palmeiro hit a full-count fastball into the right field stands off Cleveland right-hander David Elder. 2009: In the tallest pitching matchup in baseball history, 6-foot-10 Randy Johnson beat 6-9 Daniel Cabrera. The Big Unit and the towering Cabrera measure a combined 163 inches: one more than the combined heights of Cabrera and Mark Hendrickson on Sept. 1, 2004, in the previous record-holding matchup. Johnson struck out nine for his 298th career victory as San Francisco topped Washington 11-7. Today’s birthday: Miguel Sano, 25.

NOTEBOOK Giants’ Cueto transferred to 60-day DL San Francisco has moved Johnny Cueto to the 60-day disabled list, meaning it will be late June at the earliest before the ace righthander returns to the rotation. Giants manager Bruce Bochy also announced Thursday that Madison Bumgarner will throw his irst bullpen session next week as the star lefthander begins to work his way back from a broken pinkie inger sufered in spring training. The Giants announced earlier this week that Cueto, who was 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA in ive starts, would miss 6-8 weeks with a strained right elbow. Bochy said Cueto perhaps could have returned earlier, but they want to be cautious. Ankle surgery for Nats’ Eaton • Washington center ielder Adam Eaton had surgery on his troublesome left ankle Thursday with no timetable given for his return. The arthroscopic surgery was performed in Green Bay by the Packers’ orthopedist, Dr. Robert Anderson, an expert in the ield of ankle injuries. GM Mike Rizzo says no injury was apparent from MRIs, prompting Anderson to do an exploratory operation. Rizzo says Anderson found and repaired “a little tear” known as a chondral lap that was irritating the ankle. Eaton has been on the disabled list with what was listed as a bone bruises since April 9. He is expected back this season. Phillies are all right • Philadelphia demoted its only lefthanded pitcher, optioning reliever Zac Curtis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and recalling righthander Jake Thompson. The Thursday move left the Phillies with 13 righthanded pitchers on the 25-man roster. Veteran Logan returns for Brewers • Milwaukee reinstated lefty reliever Boone Logan from the 10-day disabled list and optioned righthander Jorge Lopez to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Logan has been sidelined all season with a strained left triceps. The 33-year-old signed with the Brewers in the ofseason after going 1-0 with a 4.71 ERA in 38 games last year in Cleveland. Reds’ Harvey to make Friday start • Cincinnati isn’t wasting any time showing of their new acquisition. Matt Harvey will start Friday night in the Reds’ second game of their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Interim manager Jim Riggleman says Harvey will be limited to four innings because of his lack of recent game competition. The Reds also promoted Nick Krall to general manager Thursday, giving him more responsibilities as the team tries to emerge from a major rebuild. Krall has been an assistant to Dick Williams, who will remain president of baseball operations and oversee the department. Krall has been part of the Reds organization for 16 years, starting as director of the team’s advance scouting preparation. Associated Press

This Date in Baseball Compiled By PAUL MONTELLA May 11 1904: Cy Young’s 23-inning no-hit string ended. The streak included two innings on April 25, six on April 30, a perfect game against the Philadelphia A’s on May 5, and six innings today. 1919: Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators pitched 12 scoreless innings in a duel with Jack Quinn of the New York Yankees at the Polo Grounds. The Big Train allowed only two hits and retired 28 batters in a row. Future football star George Halas, batting leadoff for the Yankees, went 0-for-5, striking out twice. 1919: Hod Eller of the Cincinnati Reds pitched a no-hitter to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-0. Eller struck out eight and walked three. 1923: Setting several Pacific Coast League records, Pete Schneider of Vernon hit five homers and a double to knock in 14 runs in a 35-11 romp over Salt Lake City. 1955: Ernie Banks’ grand slam: the first of five on the year: led the Chicago Cubs to a 10-8 victory that snapped the Brooklyn Dodgers’ 11-game winning streak. 1963: Sandy Koufax pitched the second of four career no-hitters to help Los Angeles beat San Francisco 8-0. 1971: Cleveland pitcher Steve Dunning became the last American League pitcher to hit a grand slam before the inception of the designated hitter rule in 1973. Dunning’s homer off Diego Segui of the Oakland A’s gave the Indians a 5-0 lead, but Phil Hennigan got the victory as the Indians won 7-5. 1996: Al Leiter, the wildest pitcher in the American League the previous season, pitched the first no-hitter in Florida’s brief history as the Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 11-0.

Cardinals pitchers warm up before Thursday night’s game against the Padres in San Diego as the teams prepared to open their four-game series.

weekend. “We’ve been losing quite a few lately,” Matheny said. “Like to put an end to that for a while. You deal with it. And once again we always talk about how it just creates an opportunity for somebody else to step in.” Martinez’s next scheduled start was supposed to be Tuesday in Minnesota, and the Cardinals have myriad of choices to fill in. They just have to get past Sunday first. The team has not announced a starter for Sunday’s series finale against San Diego, though they are keeping it open for veteran Adam Wainwright’s return from the disabled list. Wainwright threw a bullpen Thursday at Petco Park, and depending on how he feels Friday as a result the Cardinals will plan for him to start Sunday. If Wainwright does not, John Gant will. The Cardinals could elect to have Wainwright make another rehab start in the minors as well, and that would free up Tuesday’s start for prospect Jack Flaherty or, on normal rest, Thursday starter Miles Mikolas. Sunday’s decision will lead to Tuesday’s. To take Martinez’s place on the active roster, the Cardinals recalled reliever Mike Mayers just days after sending him to Class AAA Memphis. The Cardinals will carry nine relievers until determining the next move with the rotation. Following his bullpen Thursday, Wainwright said he felt good and that his arm felt stronger. He was placed on the DL to avoid the bone bruise deep within his right elbow that caused him such trouble at the end of last season. This past week, at Class AA, Wainwright threw five scoreless innings and struck out two on his rehab appearance. He was encouraged by how he was able to repeat the arm slot necessary to alleviate pain in his right elbow. He feels the time on the DL was preventative. “That was the whole reason for doing it,” he said. Wainwright said he’s following a schedule that sets him up to start Sunday. “Obviously he was effective,” said general manager Michael Girsch about Wainwright’s rehab start. “I don’t think the Wainwright of a few years ago is ever coming back at this point, so he’s evolving. He’s talked about how he’s finding what works given how he feels. This isn’t a new thing. It’s just the continued evolution of Waino working with what he has.” Flaherty has already been recalled twice this season to make spot starts, and each time he has returned to Triple-A Memphis to author another reason why he’d be a fit in the rotation. On Wednesday, Flaherty struck out 13 batters in 6 2/3 innings for Memphis. He improved to 4-1 at that level with a 2.27 ERA in five starts, and the internal reports on his outing were as strong as the box score. He would be on short rest Sunday, so the more likely chance for him to start would be Tuesday, in place of Martinez. Flaherty is eligible to return to the majors as he’s already spent

the 10-day minimum since his last option to Memphis. The Cardinals can bring him back and forth as often as allowed this season and he would still be on the same option year. “Sounds like his slider was right. It looked like it had a little more juice,” Matheny said. “The ball was coming out of his hand a little bit better, by velocity. Whenever you see those strikeouts you know the slider is sharp.” Martinez allowed four runs on four hits and walked three on Tuesday against Minnesota. Despite the blip and end to his run of six consecutive quality starts, he still led the league with a 1.62 ERA. Matheny said that after the game was the “first anyone had heard” of Martinez’s trouble with his lat muscle. The scan taken of the area Wednesday revealed a minor strain, and the schedule made the decision for the Cardinals as they could remove him from the rotation without costing him more than one start. “That’s possible,” Girsch said.

REYES SPEEDS AHEAD For the remainder of the month, Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes will have his rehab centered in St. Louis at Busch Stadium, and from there he will travel every five days or so to make a start for a minor-league ailiate. He’s set to start Monday for LowA Peoria, and in the comings weeks he’ll start for Class AAA Memphis and Class AA Springfield. Each time he will return to St. Louis for his between-start work. The Cardinals want Reyes and his surgically rebuilt right elbow to get daily attention from the major-league training staff available at Busch as he nears a return to the team and, depending on need, a role in the rotation. The Cardinals remained encouraged Thursday, a day after the 23-year-old’s first rehab start. For High-A Palm Beach, Reyes pitched 3 1/3 shutout in-

He consistently threw in the upper-90s mph, touching 99 mph. “He was efective and his velocity was up and he felt good,” Girsch said. “Those are the three things you care about at this point.” Reyes threw 67 pitches (43 strikes) in his start for the PBCards. He’ll increase his pitch count in the coming weeks so that he’ll be ready to start when he’s eligible to come of the 60day disabled list, on May 28.

PHAM BACK, NORRIS TOO As advertised when the Cardinals concluded their home stand Tuesday, center fielder Tommy Pham and closer Bud Norris were both cleared for availability Thursday. Pham opened Thursday night’s game against the Padres with a leadoff single and homered in the fifth.

concern, having already afected his season three times. For Norris, his triceps pain prompted a discussion with Matheny about how to have a more open dialogue about his day-today availability. It could limit his repeated use in the coming days. Norris, who has seven saves, appeared on four consecutive days immediately before and has been asked to do five- and four-out saves. “It was the conservative approach to let it rest and we’ll adjust to it, day to day,” Norris said. “That’s part of the equation. There was one pitch, one game where it definitely grabbed on me. I’m OK with the work, I have to make sure I’m there for the final stretch, too.”

WONG CONTINUES HAWAII EFFORTS In less than 72 hours, Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong has been able to raise more than $55,000 for relief efforts in his native Hawaii. Wong started a GoFundMe.com page, and the

Cardinals have decided to aid him by ofering $15 tickets to the May 20 game against the Phillies. Of that ticket price, $10 will go to the American Red Sox or other accredited organizations helping the Big Island recover the damage caused by ongoing lava eruptions and flows. Wong’s family is about 20 miles to 25 miles away from the damage, though they are able to smell the sulfur and the entire island has been jostled by earthquakes. As he prepares for ways to help the areas recover from the damage, Wong has been in contact with Habitat for Humanity and other organizations that can guide a rebuilding plan. “It’s in the aftermath that I want to be there to help,” Wong said. “I want to help create a way to build homes back up. This is where my energy and my thoughts are going — to the rebuilding aspect for the people and their homes.”

EXTRA BASES On Thursday, two former Cardinals righthanders were released by Kansas City’s Class AAA affiliate, the Omaha Storm Chasers: Kyle Lohse and Seth Maness. Lohse used the opportunity to announce his retirement. Maness had spent the past two seasons making a comeback from an elbow injury that received a surgical alternative to Tommy John. Maness made eight appearances in the majors a year ago and had a 3.72 ERA; he was 0-1 with a 4.63 at Class AAA before his release. … During the weekend series against the Cardinals, the Padres are honoring the 1998 club that won 98 games and the National League pennant. The 20th anniversary celebration includes a reunion of players and bobbleheads for four standouts. Two of the players captured in bobbleheads, Tony Gwynn and Ken Caminiti, have died since 2004.

game rounds Tuesday at Busch Stadium, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny spoke with starter Carlos Martinez about his uneven start, and the righthander explained how he didn’t have much of a feel for his fastball. Martinez felt like the area around his shoulder was tight to start the game — and that there was some soreness in it. That was enough to prompt a battery of abbreviations. An MRI on Wednesday led to the DL on Thursday as the Cardinals’ No. 1 starter will miss at least the next 10 days to recover from a minor muscle strain near his shoulder. With two of days bookended around this series in San Diego, the Cardinals can maneuver around Martinez’s absence to only have him miss one start, if he’s ready to return next weekend. “We’ve been losing quite a few lately,” Matheny said. “Like to put an end to that for a while. You deal with it. And once again we always talk about how it just creates an opportunity for somebody else to step in.” Martinez’s next scheduled start was supposed to be Tuesday in Minnesota, and the Cardinals have myriad of choices to fill in.

Cardinals hoping pitcher will miss just one start BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

ger. He was placed on the DL to avoid the bone bruise deep within his right elbow that caused him such trouble at the end of last season. This past week, at Class AA, Wainwright threw five scoreless innings and struck out two on his rehab appearance. He was encouraged by how he was able to repeat the arm slot necessary to alleviate pain in his right elbow. He feels the time on the DL was preventative. “That was the whole reason for doing it,” he said. Wainwright said he’s following a schedule that sets him up to start Sunday. “Obviously he was efective,” said general manager Michael Girsch about Wainwright’s rehab start. “I don’t think the Wainwright of a few years ago is ever coming back at this point, so he’s evolving. He’s talked about how he’s finding what works given how he feels. This isn’t a new thing. It’s just the continued evolution of Waino working with what he has.”

REYES SPEEDS AHEAD For the remainder of the month, Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes will have his rehab centered in St. Louis at Busch Stadium, and from there he will travel every five days or so to make a start for a minor-league ailiate. He’s set to start Monday for Low-A Peoria, and in the comings weeks he’ll start for Class AAA Memphis and Class AA Springfield. Each time he will return to St. Louis for his between-start work. The Cardinals want Reyes and his surgically rebuilt right elbow to get daily attention from the major-league training staf available at Busch as he nears a return to the team and, depending on need, a role in the rotation. The Cardinals remained encouraged Thursday, a day after the 23-year-old’s first rehab start. For High-A Palm Beach, Reyes pitched 3 1/3 shutout innings and struck out six. He consistently threw in the upper-90s mph, touching 99 mph. EXTRA BASES On Thursday, two former Cardinals righthanders were released by Kansas City’s Class AAA affiliate, the Omaha Storm Chasers: Kyle Lohse and Seth Maness. Lohse used the opportunity to announce his retirement. Maness had spent the past two seasons making a comeback from an elbow injury that received a surgical alternative to Tommy John. Maness made eight appearances in the majors a year ago and had a 3.72 ERA; he was 0-1 with a 4.63 at Class AAA before his release.

Norris gets save in return as Cardinals win opener vs. Padres CARDINALS • FROM C1

his eighth save in as many opportunities. In his return to face the San Diego Padres, the team that first drafted him and first traded him, Mikolas did not allow a run until the final pitch he threw. That pitch, which landed beyond the center-field fence for a solo home run by Rafy Lopez, ended what had been 6 2/3 scoreless innings for the righthander. He struck out four and for the first time in 46 innings this season walked an opponent that wasn’t a Cincinnati Red. The quality start — Mikolas’ fifth consecutive — kept the Cardinals afloat when their ofense remained scant. In their sweep of Windy City visitors during the previous home stand, the Cardinals only once scored more than four runs, and four of their five victories came by a combined four runs, the minimum possible to still win. The gasping for offense, dismissed so easily by the chill of April, has become a chronic cough of May. From Sunday night’s walk-of win against the Chicago Cubs until the eighth inning of Thursday’s game against the Padres — a span of 27 innings — the Cardinals had scored one run that did not involve Pham.

It came on a home run by Jose Martinez. The Padres proffered a spark if the Cardinals offense could provide the kindling. San Diego’s pitching staff’s 4.35 ERA has been in the lower third this season, and the rotation carried a 5.14 ERA into Thursday’s start. To help that, the Padres borrowed from their own bullpen for Jordan Lyles. The righthander, who last started last season for the Padres and had a 9.39 ERA while doing so, had been sturdy in 13 relief appearances already this season. He made the spot start Thursday — and other than Pham kept the Caridnals quite. Marcell Ozuna got two singles, one that didn’t get past the mound, but each time he was stranded as the inning wobbled from there. He led off the fourth with a single and stole second base, but that didn’t create a rally when Lyles was able to get a double play from Kolten Wong. Lyles limited his walks to one and, like Mikolas, tested the Cardinals’ lineup with strikes. Mikolas got two of his four strikeouts in the sixth inning and that was after retiring a majority of the batters faced with groundouts. It took him nine pitches to throw a perfect first inning. In the fifth,

he retired the first two batters he faced without the ball leaving the infield, and he got Freddy Galvis to chop an 0-2 curve for a groundout. In four consecutive starts he’s had at least 10 groundouts. Pham left Sunday night’s game in the first inning because of an ongoing soreness near his hip and groin. He did not appear at all as the Cardinals’ managed one run in a two-game series against Minnesota, though he did try to convince the team he was ready to be in the lineup Tuesday. Of concern for manager Mike Matheny and the Cardinals was how Pham’s soreness in his groin and hip abductor had interrupted his season twice already, and the front oice suggested that it needed to know by this weekend that it wouldn’t be a recurring program or a trip to the disabled list might be necessary. Pham said before Thursday’s game that he was not limited. He’s never been one to acknowledge limits. The center fielder stung a leadoff single up the middle to open the game. He took second on a wild pitch. He followed that by advancing to third on a passed ball. And before Padres starter Lyles was able to find his footing in the game, the Cardinals had a

1-0 lead on a Martinez sacrifice fly to center field. Two balls had been put in play, two pitches had found their way behind the Padres’ catcher, and Pham had his 25th run of the season. No other Cardinal has as many as 20. Matt Carpenter and Dexter Fowler, both of whom have been circling .150 with their batting averages, had a combined 30 to start the series. Pham eliminated the need for any help in his third at-bat as he launched Lyles’ full-count curveball into the seats for a solo home run. The home run, Pham’s sixth of the season, traveled an estimated 391 feet. The offense offered little around Pham as Mikolas spent all of his start protecting a lead of two Pham runs or fewer. Coming into the series against the Padres, one decision facing Matheny was how to play Jedd Gyorko while still getting Carpenter the at-bats to break his cold snap and taking advantage of a strong run from Wong. There were, per usual, a lot of moving parts to the Cardinals’ infield, but Gyorko’s success against his former team was impossible to ignore. Acquired by the Cardinals from the Padres before the 2016 season, Gyorko had played his original club 10 times in the

previous two years. He had seven homers in those game. In 36 at-bats, he had 18 hits for a .500 average. And he had 16 RBIs. He didn’t start Thursday. Matheny agreed that he sided with Gyorko’s history against Lyles — one-for-six with two walks and one strikeout — and the fact that in a four-game series there would be other chances to start the righthanded-hitting infielder. The Padres have two lefties announced as starters for the series, including Friday starter Eric Lauer. “We’re going to see plenty of Jedd,” Matheny said. With Carpenter, however, it was more of the same for the first six innings. The Cardinals’ No. 2 hitter and third base struck out in his first three at-bats. In the sixth inning, he stole an out by racing down a popup from Travi Jankowski in foul territory. Carpenter got a glove on the popup, had the ball pop out, and then snared it in the tip of the webbing for the out. At that time, though, his average and slipped to .148 with the zero-for-three start to the series. He lined into an out in the eighth inning to add back luck to the strikeouts.

Machado worth look from Cards ORTIZ • FROM C1

together a team that is a legitimate NL Central contender. From this corner of the press box, the Cardinals are the team to beat in the NL Central. Mike Matheny’s bunch already won four of five from the defending division champion Cubs, who are widely considered the NL Central favorites by many so-called experts. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, their offensive depth was exposed when they managed one run while dropping a two-game set to the Twins immediately after completing a threegame sweep over the Cubs. They were impotent without the injured Tommy Pham and Yadier Molina against the Twins. Most teams would see a dropof without two of their three best hitters. The Cardinals will be tested as Molina, the unquestioned leader on the field and in the clubhouse, is out for at least four weeks. Molina’s absence will be felt far beyond what can be measured on the stat sheet because he’s such an important part of the defense while guiding the pitching staf. Outfielder Harrison Bader has done well when called upon in place of Pham, who appears headed to his second consecutive team MVP award. Perhaps Bader might help the Cardinals most this year in an Orioles uniform as the centerpiece of a deal for Machado, who could ease some of the extra weight that Ozuna has seemingly been carrying this season. According to a veteran American League scout who spoke with the PostDispatch recently, the Cardinals have the type of young, major league-ready talent that could tempt the Orioles to send Machado to St. Louis. The Orioles, arguably the worst team in baseball, actually had a scout at Busch Stadium during the last homestand doing the type of homework that’s routine at this time of year for teams that expect plenty of calls as the July 31 trade deadline nears. Although acquiring Machado won’t be cheap, the cost in terms of talent isn’t expected to be as steep as the Cardinals paid for Ozuna because Machado will be a short-term rental. Bader and Class AAA Memphis outfielders Tyler O’Neill, Adolis García, Yairo Munoz and Oscar Mercado are the types of young, major league-ready position players who could be appealing parts of a package for Machado. First baseman Jose Martinez, who might flourish as a designated hitter, is another Cardinal who might tempt the Orioles in a package because he’s young, inexpensive and proven. With catcher Andrew Knizner already knocking on the door You can all the way debate which from Class AA players should S p r i n g f i e l d , catcher Carson be given up Kelly is anfor Machado, other quality but nobody prospect who can deny that could help anchor a package this ofense for Machado. could beneit There’s more than one reasigniicantly son for the from Cardinals to Machado’s hope Kelly thrives while bat. he gets his chance as Molina is on the disabled list. Kelly must understand that Molina’s absence will give him a long audition for teams like the Orioles and other potential trade partners. Then, there’s the deep starting rotation at Class AAA Memphis with righthander Jack Flaherty, lefthander Austin Gomber, John Gant, who is currently in the majors, Dakota Hudson and Daniel Poncedeleon. Hard-throwing righthander Alex Reyes, who is expected in the majors later this month, should be an untouchable. He hit 99-mph during his first rehab start at Class A Palm Beach on Wednesday. He may very well be the Cardinals’ No. 2 starter by the end of the season. Reyes is quite simply too special to give up for a rental, but there’s more than enough quality young depth in the majors and the upper levels of the Cardinals’ system to play in the Machado sweepstakes. You can debate which players should be given up for Machado, but nobody can deny that this ofense could benefit significantly from Machado’s bat. The Cardinals succeeded during the first 35 games of the season even though Matt Carpenter, Dexter Fowler and Kolten Wong struggled badly at the plate while Ozuna sputtered along below his and the club’s expectations. The Cardinals cannot expect to thrive this season if Fowler (.151), Carpenter (.152) and Wong (.212) remain close to the batting averages they had Thursday heading into the series against the Padres. This lineup desperately needs Machado, who is hitting .350 with 10 home runs, 29 RBIs, a .439 on-base percentage, .629 slugging percentage and two stolen bases for a team that has one of the worst records in baseball. The Orioles are going nowhere. The Cardinals have already shown that they’ll contend for the NL Central, but they need Machado to become a stronger contender.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA. • Ti-

ger Woods and Phil Mickelson delivered plenty of entertainment Thursday at The Players Championship. The lead belonged to just about everyone else. Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar were among six players who shared the lead at 6-under 66 in ideal scoring conditions, creating the largest logjam ever at the TPC Sawgrass and the most players tied at the top at The Players in 40 years. “If you’re on your game, this course suits you,” Kuchar said. That’s been the story of the TPC Sawgrass over the years — a design that doesn’t favor one particular style of play. That notion was on overdrive in warm sunshine and moderate wind, conditions so ideal that 12 players were separated by one shot after the opening round, and 68 players in the 144-man field broke par. Woods wasn’t among them. He shot 72 in his first time at The Players in three years. Neither was Mickelson, who had three double bogeys on the back nine and shot 79. Rickie Fowler rounded out the threesome and shot 74. They were the feature group in the afternoon that brought out thousands of sun-soaked fans. “Toward the back nine, it started getting a little sparse,” Woods said. “I think they might have tipped back a couple and got a little sleepy.” Or maybe they were just bored. All the action was all around them. Kuchar, Chesson Hadley and Patrick Cantlay each got to 7 under until late bogeys. Johnson, Alex Noren and Webb Simpson each shot 66 in the morning when there was only a mild breeze, still enough to make even the best look foolish. Johnson played like he was determined to keep that No. 1 ranking, which he could lose if he finishes 12th or worse. And he putted like he was fed up with not seeing enough go in. He tried the “AimPoint” method that some players use to help them read the greens. He liked the results. Johnson started on No. 10 and went out in 31, and when he rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-5 second hole, he was on his way. Johnson only gave himself a few reasonable chances the rest of the way, though he was more than happy with his 66. It was his best score ever on the Stadium Course, and only his fourth time in the 60s. “I was just not making enough putts,” Johnson said. “It’s definitely helped. Because I’m a feel putter, anyway, and so the way you’re doing it really is you’re just feeling. So it definitely works. I was pretty good the first time I switched. I had done it a little bit, like messing around with it. I’m very pleased with the way I putted today.” Rookies and veterans alike were in the group at 67. The rookie was Keith Mitchell, who didn’t even know he was in the field until Paul Casey withdrew on Wednesday. Mitchell birdied his opening four holes,

made seven birdies over his first 11 holes and was slowed only by a double bogey on the par-3 third. The veteran was 51-year-old Steve Stricker, who still can’t decide whether to hang his hat in the big leagues or the senior circuit. He was irritated by a late bogey and failing to birdie the par-5 ninth, settling for a 67. That was enough to remind him he can still challenge the best. “I’m not surprised,” Stricker said. “I expect to play well.” So did Woods, even after his putting woes last week at Quail Hollow. Back on putting surfaces he knows, Woods made a number of key putts. Except for an 18-footer just off the green at No. 9 for eagle, however, most of them were for par. There was also a 10-footer to escape with bogey on the 18th hole after he put his iron of the tee into the water. Woods hit only five fairways. Mickelson said he ran out of energy, which he feared coming into the week. He was hanging around until chopping up the 14th hole for a double bogey, and then adding a pair of doubles on the 16th and 17th with balls in the water. The feature group in the morning — Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas — wasn’t much better. McIlroy was the only one to break par at 71. Thomas had a 73 and Spieth appeared headed for a fourth consecutive weekend of at The Players when he shot 75, which included an eagle when he drove the green on the par-4 12th. “It could have been better. I could have been probably a little worse, as well. It was probably a fair reflection of how I played,” McIlroy said. “It looked like it played easy out there, but our group didn’t feel like that with what we shot.” Defending champion Si Woo Kim didn’t seem to worry that no one has ever won back-to-back at the TPC Sawgrass. He was at 7 under in the morning until a pair of bogeys late in his round dropped him to a 67.

TIE FOR LEAD IN ITALY England’s Ryan Evans and Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark shared the lead with 6-under 65s after the opening round of the European Tour’s Sicilian Open on Thursday in Agrigento, Italy. England’s Marcus Armitage, Andy Sullivan and Daniel Brooks, Adilson Da Silva of Brazil and Spain’s Scott Fernandez were two strokes behind. Evans, who had an eagle and four birdies at Verdura Golf Club, wasn’t able to complete a full practice round after his flight was delayed from London. Bjerregaard missed five of his first seven cuts this season but finished sixth at the China Open last month. “I haven’t played well this year but I found something in China, and the things I’ve been working on for quite a while now seem to be coming around a little bit,” he said.

Draymond Green’s remarkable postseason has pushed beyond basketball, featuring Charles Barkley declaring he’d like to punch the emotional Golden State forward, a death threat from a frustrated fan who Green encouraged to get the help he needs, and an attempt by the All-Star to listen in on the Pelicans huddle. Oh, and it just so happens Green also became the first Warriors player to ever average a triple-double in a postseason series, with 14.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 10.0 assists against New Orleans. “He’s just incredibly engaged and locked in. This is the best I’ve seen him play all year,” coach Steve Kerr said. “Draymond has to play hard to do what he does. I think the playofs have energized him.” Green is at his best on the big stage and playing just on the edge — pushing boundaries by being just physical enough without crossing the line, dishing out just enough trash talk, though others may beg to difer. Just as Barkley did. Green flaps his mouth with the best of them in what many might consider over-the-top gamesmanship, engaging with Rajon Rondo — Green praised his opponent afterward — in what became a testy matchup during the Warriors’ five-game series win against the Pelicans. He tangled with Anthony Davis, too. Green’s enormous personality prompted TNT analyst Barkley to go of and declare, “I want to punch him in the face, I really do.” No biggie, Green just fired back. “He’s seen me a million times. If he feels that strongly about it then punch me in my face when you see me,” Green said. “If you’re not going to punch me in my face when you see me then shut up.” Barkley later apologized and called his comments inappropriate. Green is in the middle of everything for the defending champion Warriors, and that’s right where they want him as they try for a repeat title. Next up is a date with James Harden, Chris Paul and the top-seeded Houston Rockets. “I live for playof basketball,” Green said. “It’s the most fun time of the year for me, but just, you know, locking in and focusing.” Other news • The Hornets have officially named James Borrego as head coach. The 40-year-old Borrego joins the Hornets after 15 seasons as an NBA assistant coach, including the last three with the San Antonio Spurs under Gregg Popovich. ... Oklahoma City Thunder forward Nick Collison, 37, is retiring after 15 years in the NBA. The 6-foot-10 Collison played in just 15 games this past season. His best season came in 2007-08, when he averaged 9.8 points and 9.4 rebounds in the last year before the Seattle SuperSonics relocated to Oklahoma City.

WATER POLO • MISSOURI DISTRICT TOURNAMENT

East St. Louis season called of in response to ight at SWC meet League decides against resuming interrupted championship event BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

East St. Louis has terminated its boys track and field team’s season two days after a fight broke out among the spectators in the grandstand at East St. Louis High’s Clyde C. Jordan Stadium during the opening stages of the Southwestern Conference Championship meet. East St. Louis School District 189 released the following statement: “While the investigation is still ongoing, it has been confirmed that members of the Flyers track team contributed to the escalation of the altercation at the meet held on May 9, 2018. Therefore, we are ending the boys’ track season immediately. Further consequences will be given to individuals involved in the incident, in accordance with our discipline policy. Our Code of Conduct outlines expectations of student behavior; the actions that some student athletes engaged in on May 9th do not uphold our values. Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for all of our students and athletes.” The conference meet was just more than an hour old when the fighting began. The junior varsity boys 3,200-meter relay had just finished. The meet was suspended after a brief meeting with coaches, administrators and meet officials. The league announced Thursday it will not re-

sume the meet, citing a lack of available venues, time constraints and logistics. The meet already had been moved from Wednesday to Tuesday to avoid expected inclement weather. Shot put was the only varsity event completed. Edwardsville junior Amari Brooks won with a personal best of 53 feet, 10.5 inches. District 189’s statement also addressed concerns about security at the high school. “Safety remains the top priority for District 189. We constantly evaluate and adjust our methods for improving the safety for students, staf and patrons at our athletic and other public events. Additionally, the East St. Louis Police Department has committed to making a stronger presence at all future sporting events and we are reaching out to the State Police and the Sheriff’s Department to request their presence, as well.” The East St. Louis boys program ranks second all-time in Illinois with 11 team state championships, most recently in Class 3A in 2016, and second alltime in Illinois with 27 team state trophies, most recently last season as the 3A runner-up. The Flyers were expected to be among the state’s top contenders for the Class 2A boys team championship May 24-26 at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. But after Thursday’s announcement, they are done for the season.

Parkway West’s Andrew Wachter celebrates a win against Ladue in a Missouri Water Polo District Tournament semiinal at St. Peters Rec-Plex. Parkway West advanced to face three-time defending champ SLUH at 7 p.m. Saturday in the inal.

TRY, TRY, TRY, TRY AGAIN Parkway West inally beats Ladue, earns title game spot against SLUH BY GREG UPTAIN STLhighschoolsports.com

ST. PETERS • Alex Nozka doesn’t mind the underdog role bit. Nozka scored four goals, including three straight to turn a one-goal lead into a more comfortable cushion, to propel Parkway West to an 8-5 win over Ladue in a Missouri Water Polo district tournament semifinal Thursday at St. Peters Rec-Plex. “We were the No. 3 seed and they were the No. 2 seed, so they had all the pressure on them. They were the two-seed. They had to win,” said Nozka, a junior. “For us, we were the underdogs. We had nothing to lose.” The win for No. 3 seed Parkway West (28-9) came after it had lost to No. 2 seed Ladue (23-3) three times during the regular season. “Our fourth time was the charm,” Longhorns coach Charlie Cutelli said. “In two of those matchups, it was our third game of the day. We run a more drive-based ofense and they’ve got bigger, more physical guys, and we were a little tired. So, we were really excited to play them alldeep and fresh.” The win sends the Longhorns into the Missouri Water Polo district championship game against threetime defending champion St. Louis University High at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Rec-Plex. Parkway West is the last Missouri team to beat SLUH. That came in the 2014 district title game. “Obviously, they’re the favored team. But, I like to say that I think our press is second to none. And they’re a great pressing team, also,” Cutelli said. “We haven’t been to final game in quite some time, but we’re glad to make it there.” Ladue (23-3) sufered its first loss this season to a team not named SLUH. “It took too long for us to figure it out,” Rams coach Michael Clay said. “Credit has to go to their defense. They played a great game and had a great game plan for us.” Parkway West had a terrific start to the game, leading 3-0 after one quarter. Jackson Piles started the scoring 2 minutes and 12 seconds into the game. Nozka scored on a five-meter penalty shot just over a minute later. Clark Griin scored the final goal of the period with 2:02 left.

we didn’t beat them in the regular season. Same thing here. We didn’t beat Ladue in the regular season at all. But, it’s not about the past. It’s about coming out with fire and doing what we do.”

“In our (quarterfinal) game against (Parkway) South on Tuesday, we were down 4-0 or 5-0 right away,” Cutelli said of the 9-6 win. “We talked extensively yesterday and today about coming out with fire and being ready to play and we did.” It stayed that way for nearly an entire quarter until Brandon Murdock finally got the Rams on the board with 2:05 left in the first half. Murdock nearly added on, as he hit the goalpost with 1:12 left and the crossbar with three seconds left to keep it a 3-1 Longhorns lead at the halftime break. It didn’t take Ladue long to equal its entire first-half output, as Michael Raskin notched a goal just 11 seconds into the second half to cut it to 3-2. But, Nozka answered 1:36 later to give Parkway West its first goal in nearly 11 minutes and then he scored again almost three minutes later to restore the Longhorns’ original three-goal lead heading into the fourth quarter. “I thought we got it rolling and then we got out of position,” Clay said. “We kept trying to make some things happen, but we couldn’t get the calls and couldn’t get the motion we wanted.” Nozka’s third straight goal and Ryan Mendonsa’s tally 35 seconds apart increased the Parkway West lead to 7-2 just under three minutes into the fourth. “I think we’re a very momentumbased team,” Nozka said. “We have the fire and we go, we go, we go. So, keeping that fire was what kept us in the game.” Brandon Yan scored 11 seconds after Mendonsa, Murdock notched his second of the game and Yan scored again on a man advantage to bring Ladue to within two goals at 7-5 with 2:18 remaining. But, McKay Morgan scored on a six-on-five with 1:51 to go for an insurance tally that wrapped up the victory for the Longhorns and secured a date with the powerhouse Junior Billikens, which won the teams’ regular season matchup 12-5 on April 23. “I love those guys. I play with them a lot in the ofseason. They’re good. I have a lot of respect for them,” Nozka said. “But, here’s something to remember. In 2012 and 2014, when West won the championships (over SLUH),

Nick Mattingly scored seven goals to lead the three-time defending champion Junior Billikens to their eighth straight district championship game appearance and 12th in 13 years. “It felt good. The team played really well together. We had good passes and good movement,” Mattingly said. “But, honestly its the defense that gets us there. We wouldn’t win all these games if we didn’t have a such a solid defense.” Mattingly had all three first-half goals, as SLUH held a 3-1 lead at halftime. It was a stark contrast to when the teams played during the regular season, as the Jr. Bills enjoyed an 11-0 halftime lead in that one. “We were expecting a four quarter game. That’s a really good team that is playing really well. We were expecting a battle and we got it,” SLUH coach Paul Baudendistel said. “Credit to our defense for keeping us in it until our ofense could get in gear.” SLUH busted the game wide open with three goals in the first 1 minute and 4 seconds of the second half, going on to enjoy a 5-1 advantage in the third quarter and never look back in advancing to the title game against Parkway West. Mattingly had three more goals in that period. “Coming out in the second half, all three goals they scored were legit, solid goals,” De Smet coach Taylor Swyers said. “It went from 3-1 to 6-1. That’s a big diference. It just kind of zapped our momentum.” Joe Jellinek and Jacob Fields had the other goals for No. 1 seed SLUH (25-1), which notched its 16th consecutive win over De Smet, dating back to 2010. Thomas Larson had a pair of goals and Nick Miller had the other tally for No. 4 seed De Smet (20-11), which will play Ladue for third place Saturday. “We’re one of four teams that gets a chance to end their season on a win. We’re thankful and we’re lucky to get that opportunity,” Swyers said. “We lost a tough game, but we’re certainly not down and out. I think they’re ready to go for Saturday.”

WINDOW TREATMENTS At Prices You Can Aford Sponsored Content and Photos by Windo Van Go

N

ow is a great time to freshen up your decor with new window treatments that will make your room warm and inviting. There are a variety of window treatments from which to choose, each offering its own set of advantages.

PLANTATION SHUTTERS Shutters add so much style to your room and their function is unmatched by any other window treatment. Shutters are great insulators and give owners maximum lexibility on usage. A simple tilt of the louver can control light and privacy. Plantation shutters are one of the few treatments that allow the bottom to close for privacy and leave the top open for light. Shutters come in vinyl, composite and wood. Vinyl and composite are designed to look like wood but are more maintenance free than wood and come in various whites and off whites. Wood shutters come in a variety of paint colors and many rich stains. Shutters come in 2 1/2, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 louver sizes and offer various frame styles for every window. Shutters can also be made for specialty windows such as arches, angled windows, French doors and sliders.

“Plantation Shutters are a product you buy once and will love forever” says Julie Tolmais, owner of Windo Van Go.

SIMPLE SUMMER HOME MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR COMFORT AND ENERGY SAVINGS Content and photo by Brandpoint

T

hings will soon be heating up all over the country. In fact, the average U.S. household will spend 3 percent more on electricity bills this summer than in 2017, due to rising retail electricity prices and higher usage, according to the U.S. Energy Administration’s estimation. Jennifer Franz, an energy eiciency expert at Lennox, says the good news is that homeowners can spend just a few hours before the season starts to make some quick ixes and easy improvements that will help them save energy and make them more comfortable all summer long, including:

MIND THE MAINTENANCE Schedule an annual routine check-up for your heating and cooling equipment to keep the system running as eiciently as possible, and check the air ilter each month to see if it needs to be replaced.

KEEP IT COOL Add extra insulation to the attic, which will help prevent your home’s heating and cooling system from having to work harder to regulate the indoor temperature during the hottest months of the year. (Summer Home Continued on Page 2)

ROLLER SHADES

Continued from Page 1

Roller screen shades are a popular option for shielding out sun when you don’t need privacy. They are also a great exterior option for screen porches as they are able to withstand the elements.

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

Windo Van Go Current Promotions: Free sales tax (8% value) on all plantation shutters and free cordless lift and lock on all honeycomb shades. All promotions good until the end of May. Windo Van Go is in its 28th year of covering windows in St. Louis and prides itself in offering quality, long lasting products at affordable prices.

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

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

save as much as 10 percent a year on cooling bills by setting their thermostat 7 to 10 degrees higher than its normal setting for eight hours a day, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

MAKE A CLEAN SWEEP

SET IT AND FORGET IT Install a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature at certain times of the day, automatically regulating the temperature when you’re away. Homeowners can

Decrease dust and dirt in the home by cleaning with non-toxic, natural household cleaners, such as baking soda, cornstarch or white vinegar, and using a vacuum cleaner with a high-

eiciency particulate air (HEPA) ilter, which will trap small particles like dust that others re-circulate back into the air.

SEAL THE DEAL Examine the home’s pipes and connections, as well as all vents, and add caulking or sealant, if needed, to ensure they are air-tight.

CLEAR THE AIR Breathe easier this summer by installing a whole-home air purification system, such as the new

Lennox PureAir S, which is integrated with your home’s heating and cooling system. These systems are much more effective at eliminating airborne contaminants than portable room air cleaners and don’t produce ozone, which is a known lung irritant. By taking on a few quick and easy home maintenance projects, homeowners can help reduce the amount of wasted energy, save money and stay comfortable as temperatures rise.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR FINANCES FOR

HOMEOWNERSHIP Sponsored Content by National Association of REALTORS® HouseLogic

P

reparing your inances for homeownership begins the day someone decides they actually want to buy a home. After all, saving for a down payment doesn’t just happen overnight. So, how do you best prepare your inances in advance to handle the most expensive purchase of your lifetime? Below are ive areas to tackle in order to ensure home buying success, and these steps can be completed months or years in advance of a irst home purchase.

Step #1 - Prepare Your Credit Everyone knows good credit is needed in order to qualify for a mortgage, but preparing your credit also encompasses an important component of inancially preparing for homeownership — debt payoff. Paying off debt, especially student loans and high-interest credit cards, not only frees up money in the budget for down payment savings, it also raises your credit score by lowering your overall debt. Debt payoff is also important for lenders when determining your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio (total monthly debt payments divided by gross monthly income), the primary number lenders look at to determine how much home you’ll qualify for. Lenders can qualify an individual with up to 43% debt-to-income ratio, though lenders are more likely to make a loan if it’s lower. The debt-toincome number is important for irst-time buyers to know as many are struggling with ive-igure

student loan burdens, which can severely impact their DTI ratio. The best way to tackle debt is to use the debt snowball method. List all of your debts (credit cards and student loans for now) in order of highest interest rate and throw all extra money at that amount. When this amount is gone, then go to the next one.

Step #2 - Save for a Down Payment If you opt for a conventional mortgage and want to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI), which protects the lender in case you default, you’d typically need to put down 20% of the purchase price. It could take years to save up the proper funds for a home down payment. This is why many buyers opt for putting down less than 20% or prefer an FHA loan, where a down payment as low as 3.5% of the purchase price is possible depending on your credit. You’ll still need money in the bank no matter which type of loan you think you’ll go with, so it’s important to begin saving as early as possible. Paying off debt will make saving easier over time as you’ll have more money to allocate to your down payment fund.

Step #3 - Prepare Your Budget Have you thought about what your budget will look like post-closing? Expense audits will help make some room, but to see if you can truly afford a home, try building out a sample budget of what your monthly expenses will look like after you buy

a home. Mortgage calculators can help you get a rough estimate of what your monthly mortgage payment will look like.

Step #4 - Shop for a Mortgage Rate shopping for a mortgage is an important step, so don’t go with the irst rate you’re offered (unless it ends up being the most competitive, of course). Shopping for the most competitive interest rate is one of the few ways to actually save money on a home, because the lower the interest rate, the less money you’ll pay over the life of the loan. Rate shopping is now super quick and doesn’t impact your credit score, so the few minutes you spend rate shopping will pay off big time for your future self … to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars.

Step #5 - Consider Closing Costs Don’t get blindsided by closing costs — you’ll need to save for these too. Typically, you can multiply the purchase price of the home by 3% to 5% and get a rough estimate of how much you’ll need to bring to closing. Even if the seller offers to pay some (or all) of the closing costs as part of the sale, having this money in the bank - just in case will assure the lender you’re ready to take on the responsibility of a mortgage.

looring trends change through the years as homeowners acquire new tastes and technology allows for a larger variety of looring designs. Deep ebony and dritwood inishes peaked in 2017, while 2018 trends are pushing toward wider planks, gray tones and even durable porcelain tiles designed to mirror wood grains. As today's looring choices evolve, the importance of maintaining a clean loor remains constant, especially if you have kids and pets. But, clean loors don't need to translate to hour-long scrubbing sessions on your knees. Instead, it should take minimal work to get the job done and it shouldn't matter what type of loor you have. Here

BACKPAGE

are some tricks and tips on the best ways to get your loors looking new and spotless in no time:

LAMINATE FLOORS Even though your laminate loors might look like hardwood or tile, you still need to care for them a certain way. It's important that you keep water from getting under the planks, so it's recommended that you regularly dry mop or vacuum the floors. A multi-surface spray mop like the Rejuvenate Click n Clean will allow you to quickly pick up dust and food particles with its microfiber dusting pad. For a deeper clean, simply click the appropriate cleaning solution for your floor type into the mop and attach the reusable microfiber cleaning pad and swivel away for a beautiful, professional clean. You never want to polish laminate floors and, if a plank looks damaged, it is best that you just replace it with a new one.

LINOLEUM FLOORS hese type of loors are easily susceptible to water damage, so you need to clean them with caution. Vacuum them to prevent scratches and wipe up any

spills as soon as they happen. You can spray a linoleum loor in sections and then wipe with a damp cloth as you go. If sticky messes ind their way onto linoleum loors, use a sot, scrubbing pad to clean it up.

HARDWOOD FLOORS Most hardwood loors have either a wax or polyurethane finish. Waxed hardwood floors can be damaged with even small amounts of water, so keep damp mops away from this type of floor and just dust mop and vacuum it daily. Depending on the amount of traffic or abuse the floor takes, consider a floor cleaner with a safe, non-toxic neutral pHbalanced formula as it will not leave behind ilm, residue or streaks, just a clean fresh scent.

TILE AND GROUT FLOORING If you have stubborn stains or dirt embedded in grout lines, you can opt for a deep grout cleaner. Simply spray it on the loor, let it sit for a few minutes and then scrub it with the Click n Clean grout brush. Without the use of harsh, acidic chemicals, dingy grout will become brighter, lighter and stay clean long ater you are done.

Some have even said his inluential criticism helped turn black voters away from Hillary Clinton in 2016. Even if his visit it termed a “West Fest” and is pegged to Malcolm X, it’s likely current politics won’t be ignored. Building D is part of SIUE’s continuing education campus in East St. Louis.

Jason Aldean

Flashy features Jason Aldean says his new album is a ‘selling tool’ to attract fans to his live show BY AMANDA ST. AMAND / ASTAMAND@POST-DISPATCH.COM

hink of Jason Aldean’s massive summer tour as the newest iPhone — some flashy new features but at its heart still a phone. Just like Aldean’s still a singer. But his fans hold high expectations when they come to see him nearly every year. “We never want to feel like we’re doing the same thing year after year, so we’re always kind of looking at cutting-edge video things and technology to make the show diferent and cooler than it has been in the past,” Aldean says, from his home in Nashville, Tenn. “It’s kind of like the iPhone: Every year there’s new and better stuf.” It helps, too, that there are new songs to sing and play from Aldean’s eighth

T 6

studio album, “Rearview Town.” It became the first country album of the year to hit No. 1 on the charts. It sold 162,000 copies and saw about 20 million streams in its first week. Even so, Aldean says, he knows the days of having an album go gold in its first week or so are over for most everyone. “All the streaming and stuf has taken over, so I go into it knowing it’s a diferent world these days,” he says. “And it’s almost like you use the album as sort of a selling tool for people to come to your show.” The 34-city “High Noon Neon Tour” kicked of Thursday in Kansas City after Aldean took about five months of the road to spend time at home with his wife and new son, Memphis, who was

Juicy J)

born late last year. “I’m not used to being home this long, but it’s because of him we took the time of,” he says. “Now that we have him on a schedule, we’ll stick him in a bus and mess it all up.” How has Aldean adjusted to having a baby in the house again? He chuckles and acknowledges it had been a while — his two daughters from a previous marriage are in double-digits. “My girls are at the age where they’re self-suicient; they get up and eat breakfast if we want to sleep in a little bit,” he says. “Now we have him here, I realize how much you don’t get done when you have a baby at home.” Aldean’s fans know he named his son Memphis because he’s had a “thing” for Elvis Presley for years. For all that, though, he’s never visited Presley’s Memphis home, Graceland. He remembers playing in Memphis only once — he’s usually just passing through. Not so for St. Louis, where Aldean has been a summer fixture for years. Although most years, Aldean has played St. Louis in July or August on even steamier-than-usual nights. This year’s mid-May date is just good fortune. “Every time we’ve been to St. Louis, it seems like there’s been a heat advisory,” Aldean says. The “High Noon Neon Tour” is Aldean’s first since the Las Vegas massacre, when a gunman opened fire Oct. 1, 2017, at the Route 91 Harvest Festival while Aldean was onstage. The shooter killed 58 people and injured hundreds more. Aldean has said in interviews since that he refuses to be afraid to play outdoor music venues, where he’s often happiest while singing. His family

knows what it means to him. “The one thing I’ve tried to tell them is that this is something I’ve thought about for years: When you’re up there with a spotlight on you, it’s something that’s a thought for you,” he says. “It made us really step up on our security and really pay attention to everything.” More than that, though, Las Vegas took away some innocence. Aldean says he feels like he’s on high alert everywhere he goes. “I’ll be in a grocery store, and it starts getting too crowded in the aisles, I feel like I have to get to the end of the aisle. It makes you look at everything diferently,” he says. On his St. Louis stop Thursday, Aldean will be teamed with openers Luke Combs and Lauren Alaina. On his album, he collaborated with Miranda Lambert for “Drowns the Whiskey.” Aldean is picky about who he works with. He also famously cut “The Only Way I Know” with Eric Church and Luke Bryan, and he likes singing with artists who have been friends of his for years. When he wanted to record “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” he knew the voice he wanted was Kelly Clarkson’s — despite not knowing her. “I didn’t know how to make that happen, but my manager knew her manager,” and the recording was on, he says. So if there were any singer from any genre Aldean could sing with, who would it be? No hesitation: Adele. “I think she’s one of those people who can sing anything and it sounds amazing,” he says. “I know some country artist is going to grab her and do something with her at some point.” Aldean wants it to be him.

Shinedown

Shinedown turns its attention to irst concept album BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

eavy rock band Shinedown is looking to get fans’ attention by going a diferent route on its latest album. “Attention Attention” is Shinedown’s irst concept album, though guitarist Zach Myers isn’t quick to call it that. “We refer to it as a story record,” Myers says, though he understands why it’s viewed as a concept album. But he contends it’s not in the same vein as Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon.” “It’s a story all the way through from top to bottom about this one situation. It’s about one person going through this thing, coming face-to-face with life and everything you go though,” he says, adding the story is at times about all the group members while at other times about individual members. The album’s writing was a shared efort. The group, performing Saturday at Pointfest at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, also includes singer Brent Smith, bassist Eric Bass and drummer Barry Kerch. The story of the album starts with “Devil” (the

P H O T O : J I M M Y F O N TA I N E

H

stltoday.com/go

irst song and single from the album). “The person is at the worst place he can be in life, the bottom of the hole, a hole dug by himself,” Myers says. “Once in it, he’s trying to get out of it, and emotionally we go through diferent things in the person’s life. It ends on ‘Brilliant,’ a positive message with a cautionary tale that this could happen again.” The band was about halfway through the making of the album when the musicians realized there was a theme linking the songs, and they needed to follow through with it. “When something like that happens, you ind out what you need to do to make it all link together.” Shinedown realizes a concept album is a lot for fans to embrace during a music era when streaming rules and single hits dominate. “If I had my druthers, I’m gonna have people listen to it in the way it’s meant to be listened, from start to inish. An album is a picture of who an artist is at that time, and every album is meant to be listened to all the way through,” Myers says.

“For me, I just think we’re still a physical band, and we’ve sold a lot of physical copies of our records.” He says the band has been talking up the fact “Attention Attention” is a concept album in interviews, but “they’re gonna listen how they listen.” Production of the album was handled by the band’s bassist, Bass; in the past, he’d only done a few songs, but went all out for “Attention Attention.” During the early stages of the album, as the band discussed the production, all ingers pointed to Bass. “He’d already done three No. 1s for us, so we all knew who the producer was. We didn’t know if he wanted to do it. But he’d rather go crazy making it than go crazy watching someone else try to make it,” he says. Having Bass produce also worked especially well in that he knows the band members as musicians and as people. The inished product is heavier both musically and lyrically than the band’s last album, “Threat to Survival” (2015). “The subject matter is way deeper,” Myers says. “I love ‘Threat to Survival’ as a record, but I don’t view it as a complete thought. This is a complete thought from start to inish.” WHAT Pointfest with Alice in

“So it really is a very high quality of art that’s being presented,” she says. “And also at a variety of price points.” In the art-fair tradition, the event will include local food and beverage vendors. Entry to the City of Sunset Hills Music Festival on Saturday and the Edward Jones Creation Location on Saturday and Sunday (featuring activities and entertainment for kids) is free with art fair admission. While you’re at the fair, you might want to check out some of the sculptures. A standout is Tony Tasset’s “Deer,” which the park acquired and installed last year. It’s a 12-foottall, 20-foot-long fiberglassand-steel representation of a doe. Tasset is also the sculptor of “Eye,” a much bigger than life-size rendering of an eyeball. Aside from the sculptures, art exhibitions on view (through July 29) are “Farid Rasulov: 1001 Skewers” and “Farid Rasulov, Bird #1, 2018.” Last year, the sculpture park celebrated its 40th anniversary — and also developed a strategic plan to ensure the cultural institution’s future. The plan involves “engaging the community through art and nature, with an emphasis on community,” says Stephanie Riven, interim executive director of the park. “We really want to understand what people are interested in,” Riven says. “And we want to be a place that brings people together.”

Laumeier Art Fair has an undeniable edge. With 65 large-scale sculptures on site, the park in Sunset Hills is worth the trip even without special incentives. The fair is just another reason to embrace all that seasonal beauty. And what better time to stage it than Mother’s Day weekend? This year marks the 31st edition of the annual juried event.

“We like to think of it as a St. Louis tradition in honor of Mother’s Day,” says Lauren Kistner, director of marketing and communications at Laumeier Sculpture Park. “There’s a lot to do and see here for the whole family.” One hundred fifty artists have been selected to exhibit and sell their work in 10 categories: ceramics, fiber/textiles, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography/digital, printmaking/ drawing, sculpture and wood. The fair, which is produced in partnership with St. Louis County Parks, received more than 400 applications from artists across the country, Kistner says.

Molly Gordon (left) and Melissa McCarthy in “Life of the Party”

Party pooper ‘Life of the Party’ is likely to please fans of Melissa McCarthy, but it’s not much of a comedy ★★

D

eanna (Melissa McCarthy) has just dropped of her daughter, Maddie (Molly Gordon), for her senior year of college when the proud mom gets disturbing news: Her husband, Dan (Matt Walsh), wants a divorce. Distraught and eager to change her life, Deanna decides to return to college and complete her

degree in archaeology. Years ago, she had dropped out with only a year left — and Dan was at least partly to blame. It’s a good plan, except for one thing: It puts Deanna on the same campus as Maddie, who loves her mom but needs her space. Deanna is also somewhat out of place anyway. She’s the oldest person in her classes, and she’s a wine drinker in an environment in which beer is king.

But that also means Deanna attracts a lot of attention, some of it from unlikely sources. She’s a big hit with the hunky, 20-something Jack (Luke Benward), who finds her sexy in a way that the young women on campus can’t match. And she sparks admiration of a more intellectual variety from Mr. Truzack (Chris Parnell), an old classmate who has become an archaeology professor. Can things really go better the second time around? “Life of the Party” is likely to please McCarthy fans, but it’s not much of a comedy. Once Deanna becomes a college student, she’s immediately embraced by her daughter’s friends, and it doesn’t take the initially embar-

rassed Maddie long to get with the program. From that point, the film simply lurches from scene to scene without much of a story to tell. Working from a screenplay that he co-wrote with McCarthy, director Ben Falcone (who happens to be her husband) keeps things moving but without much of a spark. As with their previous collaboration, “The Boss,” this latest efort comes dangerously close to being a vanity project. McCarthy is always the life of the party, but this film is something of a drag.

Cowboy’s courage ‘he Rider,’ based on real events, demands close attention and an open mind ★★★½ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

rady Blackburn (Brady Jandreau) had his future all planned. Fame and fortune as a rodeo star seemed so close that he could almost touch it, and in his mind no other destiny would do. That dream became much more unlikely to be realized when a horse stomped on his skull and almost killed him. It’s hard for Brady to accept the fact

B 22

that a rodeo life is no longer an option, despite the stitches on his head and the judgmental attitude of his dad (Tim Jandreau), who warned him about the dangers involved in riding wild horses. Brady is all too aware of those dangers, and he understands that he’s lucky to be alive. While he can still walk and talk and more or less go about his life unimpeded, a friend who had a similar experience in a rodeo arena is

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 05.11.18-05.17.18

no longer able to function on his own. Brady visits him and attempts to provide as much comfort as he can. But he also realizes that his own situation could easily be much worse. With no marketable skills beyond working with horses, Brady must come to terms with his bleak and uncertain prospects. “The Rider” is the kind of film that’s capable of eliciting wildly diferent reactions. Art-film aficionados would be impressed with its atmospheric storytelling and emphasis on character. Devotees of mainstream cinema would likely complain that “nothing happened.” But it’s unlikely that writer-director

Chloé Zhao (“Songs My Brothers Taught Me”) had any illusions about the film being a blockbuster. “The Rider” demands close attention and an openness to a narrative that’s more about picking up on details than about spelling things out. The film has the feel of a documentary, which only makes sense: The character that Jandreau portrays is based on his real-life experiences. Cinema that’s challenging and ofbeat is always in danger of being overlooked. But “The Rider” deserves to be seen. WHAT “The Rider” • RUN TIME 1:44 • RATING R • CONTENT Language and drug use

Alessandro Nivola and Rachel McAdams in “Disobedience”

Forbidden love Weisz-McAdams’ ‘Disobedience’ isn’t nearly as titillating as its title ★★ BY COLIN COVERT / STAR TRIBUNE

s many may remember from last year’s “Call Me by Your Name,” stories of gay first love, even when set amid luxuriant Italian sand and music, are not altogether upbeat. Still, that film’s meek, tousle-haired novice and his raish Romeo had a swell, unhurried summer in the sun before their liaison reached its expiration date. In contrast, “Disobedience” feels like a heavy serving of spinach. It gives us the story of a brief encounter between former lesbian lovers in bleak fall London. More a religious melodrama than a romance, its focus is on the ebb and flow of social/spiritual power plays in the women’s pious Hasidic neighborhood, which observes a strong prohibition against homosexuality.

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

There’s nothing wrong with such a sober focus, but there’s not much in it to enjoy. That cold-shower tone is especially disappointing considering the talent involved. Rachel Weisz produced the project and shares top billing with Rachel McAdams. It’s directed by Chile’s Sebastian Lelio, who made this year’s best foreign-language Oscar winner, “A Fantastic Woman.” It is a thematically similar story of prejudice against sexual minorities, but told in a brasher, bolder Latin tone. Weisz plays Ronit, a Manhattan photographer who long ago moved from her native London. When she returns for her rabbi father’s funeral, she’s received with a sense of tension by the tight-knit community. But she’s graciously greeted by the

synagogue’s young rabbi, Dovid (Alessandro Nivola), an old friend. Dovid invites her to stay with him rather than in a hotel. Ronit can catch up with his wife, Esti (McAdams), her schoolyard best friend. What could go wrong? Ronit’s speechless reaction to learning they are married suggests that a great deal could. The doggedly linear film exposes its backstories bit by bit. We learn that Ronit moved to New York on bad terms, largely to part ways with her controlling father. A scholarly orthodox rabbi, he called the heavens for his own merciful death when he discovered Ronit in a homosexual afair. She is attending his funeral largely to give him her forgiveness. As for her youthful friendship with Esti, that was meaningful in ways Dovid can’t imagine. And it’s not over. What will that mean for Dovid, who follows his religion’s teachings, which condemn homosexual acts but not inner feelings? Or for dutiful Esti, who can’t imagine resigning her teaching post at the Jewish day school?

So, we have two women who feel they don’t really belong where life placed them and a man in crisis at the very moment he must prove that he has the strength to lead his congregation. On paper, it’s so promising. On the screen, though, it’s cautious, staid work. A forbidden love plays best when it’s infused with notes of excitement and addictive allure, a wayward sense of transgression. Disobedience, as the title puts it. Those sparks are missing here. There is fervent longing but even more reserved English composure, as if that deeply ingrained cultural dread of disgrace and embarrassment sealed a permanent lid on their emotions. The story builds to an ambiguous conclusion about what resolution each of the characters can settle for, what rules they will follow, what personal hopes they won’t ignore. Like spinach, it’s nutritious but hardly irresistible. WHAT “Disobedience” • RUN TIME 1:54 • RATING R • CONTENT Some strong sexuality

Neighbors’ deiance ‘Little Pink House’ tells the story of an eminent domain battle in Connecticut that went to the Supreme Court BY SUSAN DUNNE / HARTFORD COURANT

story that began in a modest Connecticut neighborhood in 1997 and ended in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2005 is the subject of a major motion picture. “Little Pink House” is based on the book “Little Pink House: A True Story of Defiance and Courage” by Jef Benedict. Benedict chronicled the saga of Susette Kelo and her neighbors in New London, Conn. Their homes were seized and condemned by eminent domain to make way for a big development by Pfizer Corp. Kelo fought the decision as the lead plaintif in the Supreme Court case, which was lost by a 5-4 vote. Nevertheless, her little pink house survived the aggressive acquisition campaign by New London Development Corp. Kelo made a deal with the governor to save the house in exchange for vacating. Ironically, after the neighborhood

A

was reduced to a field, Pfizer left New London and abandoned plans to use the site. Kelo’s house later was moved by the Institute for Justice, which represented her pro bono, to a diferent location in New London. Courtney Balaker’s film stars Catherine Keener as Kelo. Jeanne Tripplehorn plays the head of New London Development Corp. In real life, that was Connecticut College president Claire Gaudiani; in the film, she has been renamed Charlotte Wells, president of the fictional Walthrop College. Aaron Douglas portrays the governor, modeled after John Rowland but never spoken of by name. Benedict, of Lyme, Conn., has been in the news recently for his new book, the unauthorized biography “Tiger Woods,” which he wrote with Armen Keteyian. Benedict had already published “Without Reservation: How a Controversial Indian Tribe Rose to Power and

Built the World’s Largest Casino,” a book about Foxwoods Resort Casino, when the New London eminent domain case hit the news. At the time, he was running for Congress. “It was a hot, contested issue in the Second District. I kept getting asked about it on the campaign trail,” he says. After losing his bid for oice, Benedict focused on casinos while the eminent domain case made its way through the courts. Then the Supreme Court agreed to take the case. “As soon as (the Supreme Court) took it, I thought whether the homeowners win or lose, it would be a good book topic,” he says. “If the homeowners win, it’s a great story with a great ending. If the homeowners lose, it’s a tragic story with a tough ending.” He started his research by visiting Kelo’s house. “I knocked on the door. ... We had never met before. All I knew about her was that she was tough and confrontational,” he says. “She answered, and I said ‘I’m Jef Benedict,’ and she said ‘I know who you are. What took you so long?’” Three hours later, he was still sitting in her kitchen, and the book was born. “There was a lot about the story that I didn’t know,” he says. For the next 2½ years, he spoke to as many people as he could find on both sides of the case. “It was a big sweeping story with lots of characters,” he says. “I wanted it to be well-rounded. I was not just interested in what was happening to (the homeowners) but also to what was driving Pfizer, Connecticut and the New London Development Corp.”

Talking to displaced homeowners was easier, he says, than talking to those on the other side. “This was a triangle with three power centers — Rowland, George Milne from Pfizer and Gaudiani — with the unified goal of bringing Pfizer to New London,” he says. Rowland never participated in the book, but Milne and Gaudiani eventually did. In the film and the book, that “triangle” falls apart when the NLDC decides to employ eminent domain. “The state of Connecticut became uncomfortable when they realized that they were going to resort to this as a tool, a weapon to take the neighborhood,” Benedict says. “(Rowland) didn’t like that. The optics aren’t good.” Benedict — who now runs the Institute for Writing and Mass Media at Southern Virginia University — says he strives for objectivity in his writing. “People look at this as ‘whose side are you on?’ As a writer, I try not to be on a side.” However, the film comes down squarely on the side of the homeowners. It depicts “Charlotte Wells” as a ruthless cliché-spewer and closes with a shot of the governor in a prison cell. Kelo is the heroine. Footage of the real-life Kelo speaking about eminent domain is shown over the closing credits. Unlike many book writers, Benedict was a hands-on participant in the making of the film, which was shot primarily in Canada. “They wanted me to be involved. I wanted to be involved, not just in name but to work with the producers,” he says. Balaker, who adapted the screenplay, sent him drafts for comments. “It’s an extremely hard book to adapt, hundreds of pages with thousands of facts, to turn it into a 100-page script,” he says. “That’s not a skill set I have.” He developed new skills during the making of the film, however, including rewriting dialogue on tight deadlines. “I’m used to deadlines of two years, not two minutes,” he says. He brought the new dialogue to Keener. “She hadn’t met me. She read it and liked it. She said ‘Who’s this guy?’”

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU The Sugarfire Smoke House juggernaut continues to grow. The barbecue restaurant opened its latest outpost April 30 at 1425 Green Mount Road in O’Fallon, Ill. This is the first Sugarfire in the Metro East and the ninth overall, including the recently opened Indianapolis, Ind., location. Sugarfire locations are also in the works for Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Denver, Colo. The new location features the standard Sugarfire menu of barbecue, sandwiches and daily specials. Per the opening announcement, the O’Fallon, Ill., Sugarfire will feature one location-specific dish, the Brisket Dip: smoked brisket, caramelized onion and Swiss cheese on a hoagie with au jus. The O’Fallon Sugarfire is open from 11 a.m. until sold out daily. The phone number is 618-360-3473. BY IAN FROEB

Savory surprises Small Bites Crisp textures and bright lavors stand out at DD Mau Vietnamese Eatery BY IAN FROEB / RESTAURANT CRITIC / IFROEB@POST-DISPATCH.COM

rue surprises are rare in today’s carboncopy restaurant world. True and delightful rarer still. The shrimp spring rolls at DD Mau Vietnamese Eatery, a 3-month-old Maryland stltoday.com/ofthemenu

Heights restaurant, are both. At a glance, these look like any other shrimp spring rolls. Bite into one, though, and the diference will be immediately apparent. The shrimp is hot — just grilled, in fact — and when your mouth has been primed for the dulled flavor of chilled shrimp, the sweet, buttery, toasty pop of grilled shrimp is a welcome shock. DD Mau owner Julie Truong hadn’t eaten grilled shrimp in a spring roll either before she decided to make it her-

self. She reached the same conclusion I did, she told me in a phone interview: “This tastes really good.” Truong returned to her native St. Louis to open DD Mau after working in the retail and fashion industries, most recently for Levi Strauss & Co. in Chicago. Her parents immigrated to St. Louis from Vietnam and then owned a Chinese restaurant in the city’s Baden neighborhood. “(I’d) always dreamed of opening a restaurant,” Truong said. “I didn’t know when.” Her family encouraged her to return home, and she decided to take the risk of opening DD Mau. The restaurant, which occupies a shopping-strip storefront on Dorsett Road just east of Interstate 270, is fast-casual. Truong said she’d seen a niche for both a fastcasual and a Vietnamese restaurant in the area. The menu is compact: spring rolls, bao “sliders,” banh mi, fried rice and bowls (vermicelli, salad or rice). You pick the protein: steak, chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu (and ham for the fried rice). Most dishes range from $4 to $8. The shrimp excepted, what stood out to me at DD Mau wasn’t any one protein-dish combination but the crisp textures and bright flavors. The

searing bite of the banh mi’s jalapeño and the crackling of its bread. How the sticky-soft bao and the tender grilled pork cradled inside it yielded to the snap of cabbage and slivered pickled vegetables. The light, tangy fruitiness and the persistent, teasing heat of the piña granada sauce (Truong’s latest creation) that I selected to accompany the bao. DD Mau recently added pho to its menu. At $10, it’s a touch more expensive than DD Mau’s other oferings, but it lacks the rest of the menu’s appealing lightness. The broth is all brawn and beef, its notes of spice and sweetness muted. A small selection of snacks include crab rangoon and Vietnamese-style egg rolls. The crab rangoon, I am happy to report, doesn’t feature hot crab or any other surprises. They are still, in their own way, a delight.

IMPOSSIBLE BURGER

The quest for a meat-free “burger” that approximates the taste and texture of meat — that is, in other words, more than wet cardboard shaped into a patty — is attracting big money. Case in point: Impossible Foods, the Silicon

shighway) and Polite Society (1923 Park Avenue). The Royale serves it as a simple cheeseburger, Polite Society as a patty melt, with roasted onions and Emmentaler cheese on marbled rye. Both cost $15. With the caveat that I didn’t try the Impossible Burger in a blind comparison with a real burger, the patty didn’t strike me as meatlike. The flavor was believably beefy: savory, salty, with a mineral tang. The texture, however, wasn’t quite right. Thanks to the coconut oil, the patty was juicy, but the “meat” was soft rather than granular. It reminded me vaguely of rillettes. On its own merits, though I did enjoy the Impossible Burger. The Royale’s version was like a very good fast-food burger. Polite Society performed a smart psychological trick by framing its Impossible Burger as a patty melt. Once I got used to the patty’s texture, with the familiar combination of onion and melted cheese, I could almost convince myself it was the real thing. Impossible Foods pitches the Impossible Burger as better for the planet as it uses fewer resources than are required to process beef. Whether the “burger” is good for you is debatable. A single 3-ounce serving contains 10 grams of saturated fat, or 50 percent of your recommended daily allowance.

Valley start-up that makes the plantbased Impossible Burger, has raised nearly $400 million in venture funding in recent years, including $114 million in March. The Impossible Burger sets itself apart from other faux burgers as a burger that “bleeds.” The raw patty is the color of raw ground beef, and it cooks up something like ground beef. The outside sears, while the inside can retain a residual redness or pinkness. The patty is made from wheat protein, potato protein, coconut oil and heme. Heme? According to the Impossible Foods website, “(Heme) is responsible for the characteristic taste and aroma of meat, it catalyzes all the flavors when meat is cooked.” Impossible Foods uses a plantbased version of heme called leghemoglobin, which it derives from soy. Here’s your reminder that the Impossible Burger is the product of a Silicon Valley start-up, not some farmersmarket artisan: The full process features genetically modified yeast. Anyway, Impossible Foods believes its plant-based heme lets the Impossible Burger mimic the smell and taste of meat. You can’t buy the burger at retail locations yet, but you can now find it at restaurants nationwide, including a few in St. Louis.

2019 Nissan Altima

DRIVING WITH DAN By DAN WIESE

Latest edition boasts AWD option, new turbo-four engine, driver assist tech In a crossover-crazy world, perhaps Nis- many wheels provide grip, power will be for the autonomous vehicles of the future" -san's Altima has concluded: if you can't beat managed, as it is now, exclusively by Nissan's helping drivers stay lane-centered, navigate 'em, join 'em.

At this writing, only two direct competitors of Altima offer AWD: the Subaru Legacy and Ford Fusion. Altima will level that playing ield when its 2019 edition arrives, offering optional four-corner traction for the irst time ever. And that AWD option will be available under each of Altima's ive trims: S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum. But greasy-stuff news isn't limited to tractive talent. Also hidden under an updated wardrobe is a new engine lineup and a reworked suspension. Regarding motors, Altima, like many of its competitive set, is getting out of the V-6 business. Replacing the current 3.5-liter V-6 as Altima's upgrade engine will be an all-new 2.0-liter turbo four that makes Compared with the previous generation, the new Altima is an inch longer, 1.1 inches lower and 0.9 inches wider while riding a 248 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. wheelbase that stretches 1.9 inches farther.

CAR TALK

Who’s to blame for high bill? DEAR CAR TALK: Is my local Subaru dealer trying to help me, or get his freebies back and then some? We bought a new Outback, and the dealer said to bring it back every 5,000 miles for free service for two years. The irst four times, we brought it back without reading the ine print, and we got free oil and ilter changes ($69 with synthetic oil), tire rotation ($20), multipoint inspection and state inspection ($16/year where we live). So here’s the problem: We brought it back again before the two-year period was up, and the dealer took the car in, and never said a word. When we came back to pick it up, the bill was $545! The service manager said it was because the odometer had passed 30,000 miles and we had already gotten our “four free services.” The bill was for a 30,000-mile service, a brake lush, front and rear differential luid change, an air ilter and a cabin air ilter. Did we get taken, or is Subaru trying to get the car to go the distance without problems for us? -- Lee DEAR LEE: I think that was sneaky, Lee. You have some responsibility here, but the dealership has more. For your part, you should have been aware of the limits on the “free service” you were getting. And you could have conirmed it when you dropped off the car. You could have said, “This is all free, right?” Perhaps you didn’t ask because you were afraid the answer would be “no”? But at the same time, the dealership absolutely should have given you an estimate as part of the check-in process. If they had told you right then that the service was going to cost between $500 and $600, you

could have had a heart attack and dropped dead at the service counter, eliminating the need for that expensive 30,000-mile service. And not only did they fail to give you an estimate, they also gave you the “gold-plated” service and then charged you up the exhaust bearings for it. The consequence for you is that you’re out $545. The truth is, you could have gone to an independent mechanic for your regular service, and probably paid half as much. As long as you save the repair receipts that prove that your oil and ilter were changed and key maintenance was done at the appropriate mileage intervals, your warranty will remain in full force. The consequence for the dealer is that he’s lost a regular customer. By taking advantage of you and doing everything short of lossing the tire tread, he’s lost your trust, and your scheduled service business. You still can go to the dealer for warranty work, and for complicated problems that your independent mechanic can’t igure out. But, as you now know, you’ll need to get an estimate upfront with these guys, and request that they call you to authorize any further repairs before proceeding. If you’re interested in repairing this relationship, you can try writing a letter to the dealership’s owner, explaining why he’s losing a previously loyal customer. If he’s a decent guy, he’ll refund half of the money, apologize on behalf of his service adviser and ask you to please try them again. If he doesn’t, you’ll know that he considers all things to be fair in love and Subaru service, and you can take your business elsewhere. Good luck, Lee. *** If you buy a used car, will you just be in04

The field routinely reached the contract of three no trump, but there was no clear agreement on the best way to play it. After winning the opening heart lead with the king, declarer has seven top tricks. Four tricks from either minor will get his total up to nine, but which minor? It is essential that he keep the East hand of lead, as a heart return by East will scuttle the contract. One appealing line is to cash the ace and king of both minors,

hoping that one of the queens will drop. When neither queen appears, declarer will have to guess which minor to continue. David Stern is an Australian expert who doesn’t play much these days, but he is in great demand at tournaments around the globe for his expertise in producing daily bulletins for the attending players. He also helps in putting on vue-graph presentations, where bridge lovers who are not playing at the time can watch experts play in a theater-like setting accompanied by expert commentary. Stern suggested leading the jack of diamonds at trick two. West will surely cover if he holds the queen, and South can simply duck and allow West to win the trick. A 3-2 split in diamonds will then give him nine tricks. Should West play a low diamond, South should rise with dummy’s ace and cash the ace of clubs, cross back to his hand with the king of spades, and lead a club to dummy’s jack. That would produce 10 tricks on this deal and applause from a vue-graph audience. We like it! (05/11/18)

DEAR ABBY

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

In-laws’ make their scorn public are there regardless. I am scared my kids will see how they treat me and think it is OK to do so. I used to be a confident man who would defend myself, but because they are family, I usually take it. I am at my breaking point, and my marriage is beginning to sufer because my wife refuses to support me. — STRESSED IN THE MIDWEST Dear Stressed • I fail to see how a couple can be happy under these circumstances. That a wife would tolerate her parents’ abuse of her husband is shameful. However, that does not mean you must allow it to continue. Dig deep and resurrect the confident man you once were. Tell your wife you will no longer visit the in-laws unless you receive an apology from them and they agree to remain sober while you’re there. And because you have reason to believe you’ll be disrespected in front of your children — or it will happen behind your back — make other plans for them and for yourself while your wife visits her folks.

Dear Abby • Maybe I am wrong to feel the way I feel. My 90-yearold mother passed away a month ago. My sister emailed me to tell me the awful news. I almost fainted when I read it. I can’t believe it was acceptable to notify me that way. At the funeral, my sister also had the pastor read what she wrote about our mom, and never acknowledged me in her writing or asked if I wanted to write something to be read. What is going on here? None of this behavior seems right to me. — DEVASTATED IN THE SOUTH Dear Devastated • Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. What your sister did was not proper. I can only conclude that you and your sister are not close, and that she may harbor some anger or resentment toward you that she demonstrated at a most inappropriate time. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Diferences: 1. Arm is moved. 2. Glove is smaller. 3. Boy is moved. 4. Cap is smaller. 5. House is not as wide. 6. Ear is smaller.

Dear Abby • I have a great marriage to an amazing woman. We have beautiful kids and are really happy together. The issue, however, is my in-laws. We are complete opposites in personality and certain views. I know everyone has different opinions and I respect that. The problem is, they belittle my opinions, job, hobbies and habits. I have been with my wife since high school, and they have never liked me. Lately, the problems have gotten worse. I am educated, have a good job and take care of my family. But every chance my in-laws get, they make negative comments to me, and in front of others. My feelings are constantly hurt, and I have begun to feel negatively about myself. My wife doesn’t see a problem and says that’s just how they are. I have stood up for myself. When I did, my father-in-law proceeded to threaten me with physical violence. It is worse when they drink, which is usually when we see them, but the insults

TV FRIDAY

Bisexual teen seeks coming-out advice

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

Dear Miss Manners • I am a 13-year-old boy, and I’m bisexual. I don’t know how to tell my parents, although I think they might think that I’m gay (because of how I act and my obsession with nail polish). But I’m still very nervous to tell them. I feel like if I do come out, they would accept it, but the topic is very awkward when I’m talking about it with my siblings. I already told my friends, but how should I tell my parents, family members and my parents’ friends? Gentle Reader • Many a child has learned the efectiveness of scaring parents into thinking their impending news is going to be much more drastic than it is: “I’m pregnant! Just kidding, I failed biology.” While there might be a temptation to oversell in the name of lessening the impact, Miss Manners cautions you against such

theatrics. Tell your family members privately and simply, without apology or forecasting a negative response. Dear Miss Manners • I work as a property manager, and I speak on the phone with dozens of people every day: tenants, prospective tenants, vendors and other employees of the company I work for. It has been bothering me lately when people I am on the phone with will not hang up without a proper valediction. Before hanging up, some will just say “OK” or “thanks.” The last time this happened, someone asked me how much the apartment rates were. I assume they hung up because the rates was too pricey for them, but I would have thought the polite way to respond would have been “Oh, that’s over my budget, but thank you for the information” followed by a “goodbye.”

I’ve been getting so fed up with this behavior from multiple people lately that I’ve considered calling back the people who hang up on me to say something along the lines of, “I’m so sorry, I think something happened to the phones, as I was talking and suddenly the phone line cut of.” Gentle Reader • Miss Manners finds your solution to be a polite and likely effective one. But it is also within the parameters of your job to talk to co-workers directly about their rudeness, particularly if they represent the company. “Isn’t it awful how customers just abruptly hang up on us? We should lead by example on this, and not do the same” would give them the benefit of the doubt.

Any new treatments for essential tremor? FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • About five years ago, I came down with essential tremor. I have tried many medicines. Currently, I’m taking propranolol and primidone, but nothing seems to help. The only thing that stops the shaking is a glass of wine. I have inquired about a laser procedure, but I found out that it’s a risky procedure. An MRI was normal. I am 82 and in excellent health. I would like to know if there is anything new to help me. — J.M.

Answer • A lot of people have essential tremor — 5 percent of people worldwide. It causes a noticeable tremor, usually of the hands and arms, but also may affect the head or other body parts. The severity is variable. Some people will be annoyed by symptoms, while others have real difficulty eating or writing. An expert sometimes is needed to confirm the diagnosis, as it can appear to be similar to Parkinson’s disease or other neurological conditions. However, improvement with alcohol is suggestive of essential tremor. Unfortunately, alcohol is not a good long-term treatment, as people build tolerance. Propranolol is a beta blocker, and primidone is an anti-epilepsy drug. They are the most common pharmacologic treatments for essential tremor. You probably have tried gabapentin and topiramate, two other anti-epilepsy drugs that work for some people but may have significant side efects. My first patient to go through ultrasound treatment for essential tremor did so a few months ago. This uses many focused ultrasound beams to heat an area of the brain called the thalamus, destroying the cells responsible for the tremor. This procedure is effective for most people, but it can have side efects, including weakness, gait disturbance and numbness. It is not clear how long the relief will last. It is an option for people whose symptoms are significantly interfering with their quality of life and who have not gotten good relief from medications. It is not yet covered by most insurances.
