HANNA WOODS ELEMENTARY HONORS HEROES

BY KRISTEN TAKETA AND ASHLEY LISENBY St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Hazelwood school district reversed on Thursday evening its controversial mass suspensions of student protesters after three days of bitter acrimony that pitted parents and students against the administration. The announcement was made on the school district’s website, ending days of near-complete silence on the part of the school district about the controversy. The reversal came on the heels of a daylong efort in which a group of students and parents staked out the administrative oices demanding action. See HAZELWOOD • Page A6

WA S H I N GTO N • President Donald Trump denounced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign’s ties with Russia Thursday, repeatedly calling it an unprecedented “witch hunt” that “hurts our country terribly.” Even as he erupted anew, fellow Republicans expressed hope that the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos. A day after appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the independent inquiry, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appeared behind closed doors before the full Senate. Lawmakers of both parties sought to question him about Trump’s firing last week of FBI Director James Comey, which was followed by news that Trump had shared secrets with the Russians and tried to stop Comey from investigating former presidential adviser Michael Flynn.

EPA says tests show no radioactive waste in Bridgeton homes

Woman in nursing home catches ire while smoking, dies

Greitens calls for special session for Ameren legislation

The Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday that test results showed no evidence of radioactive contamination in Bridgeton homes near West Lake Landfill, where Manhattan Project-era waste was dumped decades ago. The results stand in contrast to a lawsuit filed in November by an area couple, Michael and Robbin Dailey, alleging that elevated levels of contamination found in and around their home matched the signature of the landfill’s radioactive waste. Two other residences in Bridgeton’s Spanish Village neighborhood were tested by the EPA in December, out of what the agency described as “an abundance of caution.” “EPA acted quickly in conjunction with the State of Missouri, the Corps of Engineers, and the (Centers

ST. CHARLES • Relatives of a nursing home patient who suffered fatal burns while smoking a cigarette are questioning how long she was left unattended and whether proper procedures were followed before and after she caught fire. Donna Chapman, 83, died Monday after sufering third-degree burns Saturday evening as she smoked in her wheelchair at NHC HealthCare. Partly paralyzed from a stroke years ago, Chapman had been wheeled onto the nursing home’s patio and left there Chapman alone to smoke a cigarette before dinner Saturday, according to her daughter-in-law, Mary Portscheller of Wildwood. Chapman ignited her clothing and was found ablaze by an attendant.

JEFFERSON CITY • Less than a week after Missouri lawmakers left town after a tumultuous finish to their annual legislative session, Gov. Eric Greitens is ordering them back to take care of unfinished business. Using his power to call a special session, the Republican newcomer wants the House and the Senate to act on legislation supporters believe could generate 500 jobs in Missouri’s Bootheel region. “We are fighting to bring more jobs to the people of Missouri,” Greitens said in a statement Thursday. “Some career politicians failed to do their jobs and then went home. That’s wrong. We’re canceling their summer vacations and calling a special session to get this done.” The special session begins at 4 p.m. Monday. The measure, backed by Rep. Don Rone,

Mental health care too late for coal miner TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Linnie Moyers was a coal miner. And not just any kind of coal miner. He was a one-legged coal miner. Shawna Williams relays the story of how her father lost his leg in a hunting accident. It’s the sort of tale that has been told for decades, sometimes with embellishments, perhaps. She figures it’s more true than legend. One thing is clear. At age 11, Linnie Moyers lost his leg. He and a friend were walking home in Southern Illinois after a day of hunting. Moyers grew up in Valier, a tiny town of less than 700 people. It’s coal-mining country, and, indeed, Moyers would end up spending his entire adult life in that trade. Moyers’ friend was carrying his shotgun by his side, but his finger was on the trigger. There was a loud noise that startled the boys. Moyers’ friend turned and accidentally shot. Moyers’ leg was shattered. The story is important to remember, Williams says, because despite living most of his life with a wooden leg, Moyers wasn’t the sort of man who would complain much. “It never really stopped him,” Williams

said. “He was a pretty balanced guy.” That balance took a tip for the worse late last year. The downhill trend has its genesis in the summer of 2015. That’s when Moyers retired after 48 years in the coal industry. He spent part of that time in underground mines, and some of it up top as a welder. The industry was good to him. He supported his family in tiny Valier, raised two daughters, lived a simple life hunting and fishing and going to church on Sunday. In retirement, he started to fret. One of his main concerns was one shared by his fellow members of the United Mine Workers of America. Bankruptcies in the coal industry, particularly of St. Louis-based coal giants Arch Coal and Peabody Energy, and its spin-of Patriot Coal, had put the promised health care benefits for coal workers in jeopardy. Moyers wasn’t one to complain. “He wasn’t very outspoken,” Shawna says. But he started talking frequently about what would happen if he lost his health insurance. In September last year, he did something that seemed out of character for him. He hopped on a bus with dozens of other Southern Illinois coal miners and headed to Washington to urge passage of the Coal Miners Protection Act, a piece of legislation meant to put the weight of the federal government behind the decadesold promise to coal miners to be taken care of in retirement. In December, the coal miners won a

short-term victory. Congress passed a continuing resolution that would guarantee the benefits through April 28. Moyers wouldn’t last that long. “Around Christmas, it was really evident that something was wrong,” said Craig Williams, Shawna’s husband. The couple would travel to Valier most weekends from their home in University City to see “Paw Paw.” That’s what their 20-month-old son calls his grandfather still today, as he sits at the dining room table thumbing through a photo album. Craig and Shawna urged their father to seek medical help for depression, and in April, he did. On April 12, Moyers called Centerstone, a mental health provider about 20 minutes away, in West Frankfurt. He set an appointment for April 21. On that day, he went to his appointment, but somewhere, there was a mistake in his insurance paperwork. Craig and Shawna Williams believe somebody typed in a wrong birth date. But Moyers was told he couldn’t be seen, so, not one to complain, he just went home. Shawna still has the text from her father that day. “Went to Centerstone,” it said. “Insurance foul up.” Two days later, he was dead. Moyers’ wife of 49 years, Suzanne, was in the other room calling for help, as Linnie put a gun to his chest and shot himself. Like many families who deal with suicide, the Williams have more questions

Fall TV: CW will reboot prime-time soap ‘Dynasty’ CW NETWORK’S FALL SCHEDULE

BY GAIL PENNINGTON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The CW will add two dramas next fall, including a female-centric reboot of the 1980s prime-time soap “Dynasty,” with two more for midseason. The new “Dynasty” stars Elizabeth Gillies as Fallon Carrington, who is “poised to become the new COO of her father’s global energy empire — or so she thinks,” until father Blake Carrington (Grant Show) introduces his new fiancée, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley). Other characters or character names will be familiar to former “Dynasty” viewers. For example, Sammy Jo, once played by Heather Locklear, is now a young man (Rafael de la Fuente). Also for fall is the military drama “Valor,” following the only two known survivors of “an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots called the Shadow Raiders” whose secret mission to Somalia “goes terribly awry.” Christina Ochoa and Matt Barr star. At midseason, the CW has the onehour comedy “Life Sentence,” with Lucy Hale as a cancer survivor; and a DC Comics adaptation, “Black Lightning,” starring Cress Williams. The network aims to appeal “to both women and men, across a wide range of demographics,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said ahead of the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers Thursday in New York. The CW is the last of the five broadcast networks to announce its fall schedule.

MONDAY • “Supergirl,” “Valor”

TUESDAY • “The Flash,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”

WEDNESDAY • “Riverdale,” “Dynasty”

THURSDAY • “Supernatural,” “Arrow”

FRIDAY • “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Jane the Virgin”

“Dynasty,” from executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (“The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl”) and Sallie Patrick (“Revenge”), is paired with the returning “Riverdale” on Wednesdays. “Arrow” moves to Thursdays to pair with “Supernatural.” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Jane the Virgin” pair on Fridays. The CW programs two hours nightly Monday through Friday. Gail Pennington • 314-340-8136 TV critic @gailpennington on Twitter gpennington@post-dispatch.com

than answers. Why didn’t the mental health facility make sure someone saw Moyers that day, knowing he was depressed? Did his physician prescribe medicines that contributed to the depression or the suicidal thoughts? Why didn’t they just put him in their car when they visited on April 9, and his hugs goodbye seemed extra long? “This wasn’t an act that this guy would have contemplated on any normal day,” Craig says. For men who toil underground and then have to fight for the promise that was made to them, perhaps there is no normal. The National Institutes of Health reports that coal miners are the second-highest occupation at risk for suicide, and the rates rose significantly in the past two decades. Add to that the paucity of mental health care options in rural America, and it’s a recipe for something that is less than normal. The Williamses tell the story of a man they call their hero because they want others to be prepared if they have a loved one in a similar situation. “He didn’t come to Centerstone by accident,” Craig says. “People who walk through those doors may be hanging by a thread. Mental health needs to be taken seriously.” On May 4, the U.S. Senate passed the Coal Miners Protection Act. It was too late for Paw Paw.

Manhunt on for burglary suspect who drove of in deputy’s vehicle

MANCHESTER • Twelve students ages

6-11 huddled together in front of about 400 of their peers Thursday at Hanna Woods Elementary to honor the people they now consider heroes. School oicials gathered about 20 people, including police oicers, firefighters, hospital workers, paramedics and good Samaritans whose actions helped the students survive a school bus crash the week before along Interstate 44 in Kirkwood. But there was one hero they were hoping to see the most — their bus driver, Lavitta Conrod-Wooldridge. She was behind the wheel May 11 when a car spun out in front of her. She swerved, and the bus went over the guardrail and down an embankment. “Everyone is commenting about the courage and the skill it took to keep that bus upright, and as far as we know, she got out of the hospital last night, and we’re told she should be here soon,” announced Principal Patrick Shelton, prompting gasps and wide eyes from some of the still-battered and bruised students. After a few remarks by Shelton and other school leaders, the children dutifully passed out T-shirts with hearts on them and the words “Parkway cares” on them to their new friends, including Michael Nelson, 20, who ran from his house in Meacham Park and helped get the last child of of the bus. “It was really comforting just knowing everyone was really OK,” Nelson said of seeing the children in a more normal situation. The student he helped get off the bus could not attend the assembly. The 11-year-old sufered a broken toe — the only broken bone anyone inside the bus sustained — and a laceration to his ear. His mother has said he still is in pain and was too tired to come to school Thursday, Shelton said. Hamid Socoro, 9, remembers being ejected from the school bus through an emergency door. “It felt a lot like I was jumping on a trampoline, but I landed really hard on the interstate,” Hamid said, recalling that a man in an SUV scooped him up from the pavement, brought him into his vehicle and tried to stop his bleeding with a shirt. “I don’t know who he was, but I want to say, ‘Thank you,’” said Hamid, who sufered cuts and scrapes to his head, arm and back. His classmate, Emiyah Nash, 9, had her

DIGEST CLAYTON > County presents agreement for MetroLink police task force • As the St. Louis County Council sat down to conduct a public hearing on safety issues on MetroLink, they were given a six-page document signed by County Executive Steve Stenger, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson and St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern. The proposed memorandum of understanding between the three jurisdictions and Bi-State Development, the agency that oversees MetroLink, provides the framework for establishing a joint task force to police the light rail system. It is nonbinding agreement, often described as a goal. It contains no speciic information about the cost of the task force or the number of oicers who would be a part of it. “This is not an agreement,” Councilman Ernie Trakas said. “It is a wish list.” But it leaves little doubt about who would make most of those decisions: the leaders of the three jurisdictions — not Bi-State. The agreement also prohibits metro decreasing “its level of publicly funded security services, Rail-Related Public Safety personnel, or Contract Security personnel without the urging of the task force.” Bi-State President and CEO John Nations

arm in a sling after sufering a shoulder sprain. Her father, Edmund Nash, and mother, Likisha Wellington, and 6-weekold sister, Emori Nash, also attended Thursday. The students were then ushered of to classes, still looking at the door and wondering whether their driver, Ms. Lavitta as they know her, would show. Then, Shelton and several other teachers led them into a separate room where Ms. Lavitta, dressed in all white, was seated on a chair — her walker not far from reach. They swarmed her and she spoke to each of them, barely above a whisper and wincing as she tried to move and hug them, appearing to be in pain with each breath. “How’s your baby sister?” she asked Emiyah. They sat in seats arranged in front of

her. “I’m so glad to see you all. How have you all been doing?” she said evoking a collective, “Fine,” from many in the room. “Are you ready to do your homework?” she said, prompting a mixed reaction of yeses and noes. Fartun Abdi, 6, began to cry about Ms. Lavitta’s obvious pain. A teacher comforted her, and Ms. Lavitta motioned for Fartun to approach. Ms. Lavitta hugged her and held her hand. Her tears stopped. And she knew her hero was OK.

said at the hearing that he was not a part of the discussions that produced the memorandum. He said that Bi-State had received it but that he had not had time to fully review it. The memorandum included a blank space for Nation’s signature. (Stephen Deere)

The appointment is efective May 22. Lewis, 49 and a resident of O’Fallon, Mo., replaces Chief Tom Felgate, who retired March 1 after serving as chief since 2004. Lewis has worked for the Chesterield Police Department for the last 24 years. Before that, he was with the St. Louis Police Department for ive years. In Ellisville, he’ll oversee a department with 22 full-time oicers, one part-time oicer and one reserve oicer. “Thanks for putting your faith in me — I pledge to provide the top level of service, and I hope to do the best job I can to continue the legacy of an excellent police department,” Lewis told the council and Mayor Adam Paul. In other business Wednesday, the council gave inal approval to changes to regulations on the parking of motor vehicles, recreational vehicles and trailers in residential areas. The changes include that no vehicles 30 feet or longer can be parked outside of a fully enclosed building, except that for up to 72 hours at a time and up to twice a month, they can be parked on a driveway for loading or unloading and, for up to 24 hours twice a month, they can be parked on the street next to the home.

suspect freed himself from a seat belt in the back of an unmarked police car, got behind the wheel and tried to hit a deputy as he drove away Thursday, authorities said. The deputy fired shots at the man, identified as Jason Wilson, 32, but authorities don’t have evidence he was hit. A manhunt was underway Thursday afternoon and evening Wilson after authorities found the abandoned department car about a quarter mile away in a wooded area near Highway B and Route 21, Sherif David Marshak said. Hillsboro schools also were put on lockdown, according to the district’s website. Police helicopters and officers on the ground with canines were searching for Wilson, Marshak said. Deputies had arrested Wilson at a gas station in the Hillsboro area about 1 p.m. on suspicion of multiple residential burglaries, Marshak said. He was wearing a white T-shirt and plaid shorts and is not believed to be armed, Marshak said. Once Wilson had been arrested and put in a seat belt inside the unmarked patrol car, detectives could see stolen property inside his vehicle and were waiting on a warrant to search Wilson’s car when he made his escape, Marshak said. “At some point, the suspect was very quickly able to unfasten his seat belt while handcufed, jump into the front seat of a patrol car and take of in the car,” Marshak said. The deputy who fired at Wilson told investigators he believed the suspect may have dragged another investigator and turned the car toward him before he fired at him, Marshak said. The deputy fired several shots. No oicers were injured, Marshak said. “It’s my understanding that he turned his back for very short few seconds to ask the other investigator a question and that investigator noticed the brake lights went on,” Marshak said. Marshak described Wilson as a serial burglar who had hit multiple homes in the Hillsboro area to steal primarily jewelry and is on parole.

LAW & ORDER SPRINGFIELD, MO. > Mercy Hospital and clinics to pay $34 million settlement • Mercy Hospital Springield and its ailiated clinics have agreed to pay $34 million to settle claims of improper Medicare billings. The U.S. Department of Justice released a settlement document Thursday detailing the agreement with the hospital and medical clinics. U.S. attorneys contend that Mercy Clinic Springield Communities violated federal law by compensating physicians based partly on the value of their patient referrals to Mercy Hospital’s chemotherapy treatment center. The Justice Department alleges that resulted in improper Medicare claims. The settlement includes no admission of wrongdoing by Mercy Hospital and its ailiated clinics. About $5.4 million of the $34 million settlement payment is to go to physician Viran Roger Holden, who iled the original whistleblower lawsuit raising the claims. Mercy Hospital Springield is part of Chesterield-based Mercy, which operates more than 40 hospitals in a four-state region.

Family questions how long woman was left alone while smoking PATIENT • FROM A1

“She caught fire and burned,” Portscheller says. “The doctor said several times that she had very deep burns on her breast, her back and the back of her head.” Her family was shocked when they saw her in the trauma center. Blackened parts of her skin were coming off. Her badly burned clothes were reduced to scraps. Her bra disintegrated. Her white hair was charred black. She lingered in the hospital on Mother’s Day, then died at 12:01 a.m. Monday. Irate over Chapman’s death, Portscheller said the nursing home’s account to her that Chapman was unattended for 10 minutes didn’t add up. Portscheller and her husband, Dean Chapman, question: • How did she get burned so badly, over 20 percent of her body, if left alone for only 10 minutes? • Why wasn’t Chapman wearing a special fire-resistant smoking apron, which was assigned to her months ago? • Was the attendant who saw her on fire trained to use a specially made fire blanket to smother the flames? The nursing home’s executive told Chapman’s family that Chapman had wanted to smoke before dinner, so an attendant put her on a patio, or courtyard, of the hallways for 10 minutes. The attendant returned to find Chapman on fire, then ran to get help instead of using the fire blanket that was stored on the patio, Portscheller said. A St. Charles Fire Department report puts the fire at about 5:15 p.m. Smoke alarms were going of when they arrived, but the fire had been put out. The report said it appeared Chapman’s clothing or the foam padding surrounding her had ignited. NHC HealthCare’s administrator, Seth Peimann, told the Post-Dispatch that Chapman’s death was “a bad accident.” Peimann said he already had talked with investigators with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. No one from that agency was available for comment. “This is a very diicult time here at the center,” Peimann said. “A lot of people were really attached to her. She was part of our family. We miss her.” Peimann declined to say if the attendant knew how to use the fire blanket or if the nursing home allowed people in wheelchairs to smoke without smoking aprons and without supervision. In general, Peimann said, “certainly we’re always looking to improve, always evaluating.” Portscheller said the nursing home wasn’t being forthcoming. “It doesn’t make sense what they’re say-

ing,” she said. “They left her just 10 minutes? I think she was left out there a lot longer, as deep as the burns were. I don’t think they’re telling us the whole story.” Peimann, the nursing home administrator, declined to talk with a Post-Dispatch reporter about what happened the day Chapman died or answer questions about the nursing home’s policies and practices. “I don’t know if I want to go into specifics,” said Peimann, who has worked at the nursing home 10 years. “Our concern is for our employees and the family. There are a lot of people who care here, and no one wants to see this occur.”

STROKE LEADS TO NURSING HOME Chapman worked most of her life, as a clerk for auto sales, insurance and home building companies. Her career highlight, her family says, was becoming the first woman underwriter at an insurance company in Orlando, Fla. Chapman sufered a stroke at the age of 75 and moved into the nursing home on Sugar Maple Lane in St. Charles seven or eight years ago. She was partly paralyzed from the stroke and had the use of only her right arm. With the good arm, she could operate her own motorized wheelchair. When she wanted to smoke, she would drive her wheelchair to the patio and put the cigarette in her mouth and light it. A bag on the side of her wheelchair held her cigarettes and lighter. Three months ago, the nursing home assigned her a smoking apron, a siliconecoated fiberglass fabric that covers someone from their shoulders to below their knees. It protects wheelchair users from accidental cigarette burns. Chapman needed one, Portscheller said, because she had started to get burn holes in her clothing and on her wheelchair. The family was in favor of the apron, hoping any stray ashes would slide of the apron. Portscheller said the family had tried to get Chapman to give up smoking. “She was down to about a half pack a day, and we had tried to get her to quit,” Portscheller said. “She said, ‘That’s my one thing, please don’t take that away from me. That’s the one thing I can enjoy.’ ” Three days before the fire, the staf at the nursing home took away Chapman’s electric wheelchair. Her right arm was getting weaker, and she had been having trouble controlling the chair. She would bump into things. In addition, the staf was concerned that she was found outside in the chair and seemed confused on at least one occasion. She was put in a manual wheelchair, meaning she was dependent on staf to move her from place to place. On the day she was burned, Portscheller

and her husband were at home in Wildwood. They planned to visit Chapman that evening. Portscheller was wrapping a Mother’s Day gift for Chapman when she got a call from the hospital saying that Chapman had fallen asleep while smoking and got burned. “I was thinking maybe her foot got burned, because I thought, ‘How would she get burned with a smoking apron?’” Portscheller said. “I’m thinking the apron covered her, maybe the cigarette fell past the apron and got her foot.” At the burn unit at Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur, a doctor explained to Chapman’s family that the burns were so bad she would need eight skin grafts, painful procedures that might be too much for her. “He said it would be tough on her to do all these painful skin grafts,” Portscheller said. “So we knew we were going to lose her.” The St. Charles County medical examiner’s office is awaiting a report from paramedics. Once those records and other medical records are gathered, the medical examiner will review the records and determine a cause of death.

BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A federal judge here ap-

proved on Thursday a $9.2 million settlement of legal claims that arose after a towboat hit scaffolding on the Eads Bridge in 2015, sending a worker to his death. The bulk of the insurance money paid out on behalf of Central Contracting & Marine of Festus will go to relatives of James “Jimmy” Pigue, 24, of Dittmer, lawyers said in court. Pigue’s wife and now 6-yearold daughter will receive $6.2 million before attorneys’ fees, costs and other items, and Pigue’s parents will receive $1.1 million. Thomas Industrial Coatings of Peveley, Pigue’s employer, will receive $550,000 for its damages and the general contractor, St. Louis Bridge Construction Company of Arnold, will receive $540,000. Bi-State, or Metro, will receive $15,000 and two crew members on the boat will receive $300,000 and $450,000, respectively, for their injuries. The settlement is confidential. Douglas E. Gossow, an attorney for Central Contracting, asked U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey to seal the transcripts of Wednesday’s hearings. A Post-Dispatch reporter was in the courtroom, however. Pigue was sandblasting the bridge on July 16, 2015, when antennas and equipment on the top of the pilothouse of the Danny Bradford, which was heading south with two barges of coke in tow, hit the scafolding. After the accident, the Coast Guard said the Bradford’s pilot knew the boat was of course. Since then, all sides have traded accusations over fault. Central Contracting’s court filings say that it was at least the fourth time commercial river traffic made contact with low-hanging scaffolding on the bridge, and that the general contractor failed to raise the scafolding or have a plan in place to protect the bridge and workers. Thomas Industrial’s filings said that the accident was due to negligence or the unseaworthiness of the boat. Michael Shelton, one of the attorneys for Pigue’s wife, said in court that there was an allegation that the tow boat’s rudders were in disrepair, afecting its steering.

‘WE’VE ALREADY LOST HER’ At the hospital, the nursing home administrator talked to the family, according to Portscheller. She said he apologized and admitted Chapman hadn’t had a smoking apron on. He said, “Well, you know how people don’t like those,” Portscheller said. She asked the administrator how they put the fire out, and he said the staf was “supposed” to know how to use the burn blanket. “I thought ‘supposed’ was an interesting word,” she said. Portscheller said the patio had no video monitors. Portscheller said she and her husband believe the nursing home was negligent and shouldn’t have such lax standards that allow certain patients to smoke. “We’ve already lost her,” Portscheller said through tears Thursday. “Our goal is to raise awareness of this. Something needs to be done.” She said she thought the state needed “to look into these liberal smoking policies. If someone is in a nursing home, they’re there because of a cognitive or physical issue. They shouldn’t even be smoking at all, unless supervised by someone sitting with them,” she said. “No one who can’t get up and walk away should be allowed to smoke unsupervised.” Kim Bell • 314-340-8115 @kbellpd on Twitter kbell@post-dispatch.com

Stenger seeks audit of road contracts He wants state auditor to determine if politics plays role in awarding of contracts BY STEPHEN DEERE St. Louis Post-dispatch

St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger called Thursday on Missouri state Auditor Nicole Galloway to conduct a comprehensive audit of the county’s process for procuring road and bridge contracts. The request comes four days after a story in the Post-Dispatch described Stenger’s push for a bridge near Eureka that went to property owned by one businessman, who happened to be one of Stenger’s campaign donors. The County Council voted down the project about a month ago, but it is expected to take up the matter at its meeting Tuesday. Stenger has accused the council members who voted against the bridge, which crosses the Union Pacific Railroad, of putting politics ahead of public safety. “I ask that the audit be conducted in as timely manner as possible because I am concerned that the role politics plays in the process may be putting public safety at risk,” Stenger said in a statement released Thursday. Galloway’s spokeswoman, Gena Terlizzi, said the auditor was reviewing Stenger’s request. “This is not the standard process and is certainly an unconventional way for the State Auditor to receive a request for an audit,” the statement reads. “It is not typical for us to hear of a request through social media prior receiving an oicial request letter.” “Typically, the request would come from the entity’s governing body, not the chief executive. In this case, that would be the county council,” the statement continued, noting that no such council request had been received. Stenger’s call for a state audit carries no legal weight. The state auditor must audit some state government bodies on a regular basis under state law and is required to launch audits after receiving a formal request from the governor or a citizen petition with a certain number of signatures. Sam Page, County Council chairman, said in an interview: “I would welcome the state auditor’s involvement.” Referring to the headline on the Post-Dispatch story on the Lewis Road bridge, he added: “Hopefully, an audit will help to prevent another ‘Bridge for one.’” Stenger’s move also comes amid accusations that he and other council members have stymied the county’s own auditor by supporting an investigation into the auditor’s

the county charter requires for the position. Stenger sided with them. Harder and Wasinger called for an investigation, and Stenger’s administration referred the matter to St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch, who has yet to reveal his findings. Last week in a statement about the Lewis Road Bridge, Page said: “We need a strong, independent

Our new auditor has the experience and independence to do the job, but some seem to be scared about what an auditor will find.” A statement issued by Stenger’s office said the investigation into Tucker’s qualifications was part of the reason why Stenger was calling for the state audit. When Tucker submit-

ted his résumé for the position, he included a letter of recommendation from Douglas E. Nelson, Missouri’s former Commissioner of Administration, the managerial arm of state government. From 2015 to 2017, Tucker worked as a liaison between the Office of Administration and state lawmakers, the letter notes. “Mark was our representative for all the leg-

islation, was our point of contact with the senators and representatives and handled all our fiscal note responses,” Nelson wrote. “He was a valuable member of our team and contributed beyond his responsibilities.” Nelson is now a senior advisor in Galloway’s office.

Hazelwood reverses controversial suspensions HAZELWOOD • FROM A1

The district’s statement said that new information gathered Thursday led to the change, namely that “employees of the District encouraged and may have manipulated students into the walkout, which resulted in disruption and created safety concerns.” Diane Livingston, the teachers union president, was vexed by the accusation that teachers had a hand in the walkout. “There was no manipulation,” Livingston said. “And I will stand by that.” She said she believed the district was trying to blame teachers for a mistake it made. The district’s announcement states that Hazelwood West Principal Dennis Newell made the decision to rescind the consequences for students. “Therefore, underclassmen will be allowed to return to school tomorrow and resume regular activities,” the statement reads. “In addition, the 12 Hazelwood West seniors who were suspended earlier this week may return on Friday for rehearsal in preparation for their graduation. All students missing exams during their suspension will be permitted to make up the exams.” Tammy Rooney began to cry when she heard the news read aloud from the district’s Facebook page at a meeting at AME Ward Chapel Church called in the wake of the suspensions. “It’s been a tough two days,” Rooney said. Rooney is the mother of a senior who was temporarily barred from participating in graduation on Saturday. Her son’s suit and her dress had already been purchased for the occasion. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing and they almost took it away from me,” she said of the opportunity to see her only child graduate from high school. But the celebration at the meeting did not last long before the discussion turned to next steps to address long-standing grievances with the district over transparency and school policies on discipline. The ACLU of Missouri, which took part in the meeting, lauded the district’s change of heart but condemned the penalties that were reversed. “We are disturbed at the retaliatory and excessive punishment of students who were peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights,” the group said in a

statement. “In the future, we hope that the school district encourages students to be engaged citizens in our democracy and fosters trust that educational institutions fully support free speech and wellthought-out civil disobedience.” The group had said earlier in the day that it planned to file suit against the district on Friday if the decision to repeal the suspension was not made. Advocates said they believed that added pressure to the district to reverse course. Sophomore Ishmaiah Moore, who participated in the demonstrations, said the district’s move didn’t address all the issues that had been raised. “I can’t help to say the fight is not over,” Ishmaiah said. She said students were concerned about the repercussions teachers might face as result of the protests. Throughout the day Thursday it had appeared that the district would not budge on the matter. About 50 people arrived early at the district’s administrative building Thursday morning demanding a meeting with Superintendent Nettie Collins-Hart. They were denied but did manage a sitdown with administrators in which parents said the district continued to stand by

the suspensions. Three parents, including Kayrisa Ezeufo who has two daughters who attend West, had an hourlong meeting at noon with Newell and Bruce Green, the assistant superintendent for high school education. The parents said Green and Newell said the students were cursing and running during a student walkout at the school Monday in support of union teachers. That poor behavior was the district’s reason for the suspensions, Ezeufo said. “We looked at them, we can’t even believe they were saying this,” Ezeufo said. She said she felt that the administrators listened to the parents but stood by the suspensions. The district’s statement Thursday repeated the assertion that the student protests Monday, which were in support of the district’s union teachers, were not peaceful. “Students in the hallways and outside of the school walked, ran, and shouted chants using vulgarities and profanities. Approximately 200 students left their classrooms without permission.” District officials had previously been unavailable to comment on the matter, fueling a growing anger among many community members seeking answers. Earlier in the week, a school board meeting was

cut short before dozens of community members could comment on the issue. The group that gathered through much of the day Thursday also included students and civil rights activists. Some of the students who were suspended Tuesday were holding signs for honks on the sidewalk, because they’re not allowed on district property. Hazelwood West teachers collected more than $200 to provide pizza, bottled water, chips and other food for the dozens of students who gathered. Some teachers also wore black ribbon pins in solidarity with the students. The suspensions, if they had been enforced, would have prevented seniors from participating in graduating ceremonies. Some feared the penalties would also threaten the scholarships of those who plan to use an A+ Scholarship to receive two free years of community college. That concern was brought up by at least one Hazelwood West senior this week. Among the eligibility requirements for the scholarship is maintaining a record of “good citizenship,” in addition to volunteer hours and grade requirements. A spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Higher Education said it’s “up to the high school to determine whether a suspension violates that record of good citizenship.” But the district stated Thursday: “Even as these consequences were being considered, at no time were students’ college or athletic scholarships in jeopardy, such as A+ Scholarships.” The statement also said “the Hazelwood School District respects students’ voices and the exercise of their First Amendment rights, but we do not condone disruptive behavior or the violation of District policies.” Specifically, the statement seeks to draw a distinction between prior student protests at Hazelwood — which did not result in discipline – and the one Monday. “Comparisons to this walkout have been made to other walkouts in previous years and under diferent circumstances. Those walkouts were in fact, organized, authorized, and supervised by the District.” In this case, the statement said, “students were not properly supervised while outside of the building, causing a liability to both the students and the District.”

for Disease Control and Prevention), once we learned of the allegation of potential contamination inside a residence in Spanish Village,” EPA Acting Region 7 Administrator Edward Chu said in a statement. “We collected and analyzed over 140 samples, and our evaluation of the data shows no Manhattan Project waste was found in the homes sampled in Spanish Village.” The agency said that the results signaled that “no further action is needed” at the homes sampled. The EPA reported that soil samples all showed levels of radioactivity “within normal background ranges” expected to occur naturally. Samples from the interior of homes, meanwhile, were all below the agency’s residential screening thresholds. Critics, though, say that the EPA’s conclusion lacks credibility for its controversial involvement of Tetra Tech Inc., the consulting and engineering contractor that partnered with the agency to help gather samples. Tetra Tech counts Republic Services, the waste hauling company that owns West Lake and Bridgeton landfills, among its clients. That represents a conflict of interest, critics say, because Republic is one of the parties ultimately responsible for covering cleanup costs associated with the site. Tetra Tech was also found to have falsified similar testing conducted in California. “It’s not surprising that Republic’s consultants would come up with this result,” said Winston Calvert, a spokesman for Hausfeld, the Washington law firm representing the Daileys. The firm has conducted testing of other homes in the area, and says that at least four additional residences also show elevated levels of radioactive contamination. Dawn Chapman, co-founder of Just Moms STL, a group focused on landfill issues, characterized the reaction of area activists as “one big eye roll heard across St. Louis.” “I don’t think places expected anything different,” Chapman said of the EPA’s announcement. The EPA, however, said both the sampling plan and analysis followed legitimate standards developed alongside several other agencies, including the Army Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The agency noted that Tetra Tech never worked independently from EPA staf and was not involved with laboratory analysis of the samples. Republic welcomed the results announced by the EPA. “This will give the community a chance to choose between the findings of trial attorneys and scientists,” said Russ Knocke, the company’s vice president of communications and public afairs, in a statement. For years, the landfill has been at the center of vocal political fights, including pushes for the government to buy out nearby homes and for management of the site’s cleanup to be transferred to the Corps of Engineers. The EPA, however, wants to retain oversight. In a recent interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, new EPA director Scott Pruitt mentioned West Lake as a prominent example of Superfund remediation the agency should prioritize as part of his “Back to Basics” agenda for the agency. That plan would reduce emphasis on regulation of pollutants such as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. “It’s unacceptable for the West Lake facility in St. Louis, Mo., to languish on a national priority list for 20plus years,” Pruitt said.

Tetra Tech counts Republic Services, the waste hauling company that owns West Lake and Bridgeton landfills, among its clients. That represents a conflict of interest, critics say, because Republic is one of the parties ultimately responsible for covering cleanup costs associated with the site. Tetra Tech was also found to have falsified similar testing conducted in California. “It’s not surprising that Republic’s consultants would come up with this result,” said Winston Calvert, a spokesman for Hausfeld, the Washington law firm representing the Daileys. The firm has conducted testing of other homes in the area, and says that at least four additional residences also show elevated levels of radioactive contamination. Dawn Chapman, co-founder of Just Moms STL, a group focused on landfill issues, characterized the reaction of area activists as “one big eye roll heard across St. Louis.” “I don’t think places expected anything different,” Chapman said of the EPA’s announcement. The EPA, however, said both the sampling plan and analysis followed legitimate standards developed alongside several other agencies, including the Army Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The agency noted that Tetra Tech never worked independently from EPA staf and was not involved with laboratory analysis of the samples. Republic welcomed the results announced by the EPA. “This will give the community a chance to choose between the findings of trial attorneys and scientists,” said Russ Knocke, the company’s vice president of communications and public afairs, in a statement. For years, the landfill has been at the center of vocal political fights, including pushes for the government to buy out nearby homes and for management of the site’s cleanup to be transferred to the Corps of Engineers. The EPA, however, wants to retain oversight. In a recent interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, new EPA director Scott Pruitt mentioned West Lake as a prominent example of Superfund remediation the agency should prioritize as part of his “Back to Basics” agenda for the agency. That plan would reduce emphasis on regulation of pollutants such as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. “It’s unacceptable for the West Lake facility in St. Louis, Mo., to languish on a national priority list for 20plus years,” Pruitt said.

Governor calls lawmakers back for special session GREITENS • FROM A1

R-Portageville, and approved in the House over the course of the fourmonth regular session, would allow Ameren to charge lower electric rates to large industrial users in the area. Rone told the Post-Dispatch Thursday morning that he was hopeful the special session would focus on job creation. “The people of southeast Missouri are counting on (Gov. Greitens),” Rone said. Specifically, the plan is an attempt to lure a company to the former Noranda aluminum smelter, which could help bring employment to an impoverished area of the state. The measure fizzled in the Senate in the closing days of the session after Sens. Doug Libla of Poplar Bluff and Gary Romine of Farmington, both Republicans, blocked the proposal on the grounds it could result in higher electric rates for residential and business customers. In a release, Libla said he still had reservations about

McCaskill: Too early to talk impeachment BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • Sen. Claire McCaskill

disagrees with fellow Democrats who have called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, saying that it’s too early to even consider it. “The prosecutor in me says absolutely not,” McCaskill, D-Mo., said Thursday, another chaotic day of rolling press scrums after secret meetings, presidential tweets and a testy Trump press conference It was a day after former FBI Director Robert Mueller was named a special counsel to look into Trump and Russian influence on the 2016 elections. McCaskill, and Sen. Dick Durbin, DIll., later added to the intrigue when they disclosed that, in a private meeting with senators, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, told them Trump was determined to fire FBI director James Comey before Rosenstein wrote a memo critical of Comey. “He knew that Comey was going to be removed prior to him writing his memo,” McCaskill told a crush of reporters out-

side the closed meeting where Rosenstein briefed senators. The McCaskill-Durbin claims are significant because White House communications oicials had originally said Trump fired Comey on the basis of Rosenstein’s memo. The president again raised that memo in a news conference just minutes after Durbin and McCaskill made their revelations. Rosenstein’s memo was written after a May 8 meeting between Trump and Rosenstein at the White House. Trump fired Comey the next day. Two days later, in a May 11 interview with NBC, Trump contradicted his own spokesmen and said he’d decided to fire Comey “regardless of the recommendation” of Rosenstein. On Thursday, less than an hour after McCaskill and Durbin divulged what they heard from Rosenstein, Trump again raised Rostenstein’s memo critical of Comey. Referencing a “poor, poor performance” that he said Comey had had before a House committee the week before his firing, Trump said at a joint news conference

with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos: “That is why the deputy attorney general went out and wrote his very strong letter.” Some Democrats are calling for Trump’s impeachment. Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, declared on the House floor Wednesday: “I will not be moved. The president must be impeached.” Other left-leaning cable talking heads have added to the chorus. McCaskill, a former local prosecutor in Kansas City, disagreed. “Until we have seen the documents, until we have seen some more testimony, I think it is inappropriate to talk about any more conclusions,” McCaskill said. She praised the appointment of Mueller, calling him “a professional” with “a boatload of integrity.” But Mueller’s investigation joins ongoing probes of Russian influence by House and Senate committees, including the Senate Intelligence Committee, on which Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., serves. Blunt has long said that committee was making progress in getting to the bottom of the Russian involvement in the election. The congressional investigations will

continue, but Mueller’s appointment complicates them. For instance, McCaskill said that Senate and House investigators may not be able to ofer immunity to some witnesses because it may interfere with Mueller’s investigation. “We want to be careful we don’t interfere with any criminal investigations,” McCaskill said. Trump tweeted Thursday that the special prosecutor appointment was a “witch hunt” that would divide and hurt the country. Durbin called that an “outrageous statement,” and “totally unfair” to Mueller. On Thursday, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., joined liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in asking the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions was improperly involved in Comey’s firing after Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation.

Trump says he is close to picking new Trump FBI director; Lieberman interviewed pulls trigger

on NAFTA negotiations

BY JILL COLVIN Associated Press

WASHINGTON • Making good on a cam-

ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Donald Trump listens to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos speak at a news conference Thursday at the White House.

TRUMP • FROM A1

“We’ll get rid of the smoke and see where the actual issues lie,” said Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. “I do think that the special prosecutor provides a sense of calm and confidence perhaps for the American people, which is incredibly important.” Trump strongly disagreed. The appointment, he said in a briefing with news anchors, “hurts our country terribly.” He said it “shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not unified country” and is “a very, very negative thing.” He leapt to make the point again at a joint news conference with President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, describing the development as a distraction. “Well I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt,” he said, insisting there had been “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia. “I’m fine with whatever people want to do,” he added. “But we have to go back to running this country really, really well.” The Justice Department announced Wednesday that former FBI director Robert Mueller had been given sweeping power to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, including potential links between Moscow and Trump campaign associates. Despite initially opposing appointment of an independent counsel, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Thursday that the development “helps assure people and the Justice Department that they’re going to go do their jobs independently and thoroughly, which is what we’ve called for all along.” But Trump, after issuing a measured statement when the news first broke Wednesday evening, allowed his resentment to burst forth Thursday in angry morning tweets. “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

Trump wrote, ignoring impeachment efforts and blistering verbal attacks on previous presidents and other political leaders. “With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!” he added later, without providing examples.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS During a White House press conference, Trump congratulated Santos on his hardwon peace deal with leftist rebels who terrorized the South American nation for much of the last half century. But the president did not explicitly endorse the plan that has divided Colombia’s people and left gaping questions about future U.S. financial support for the deal. “It’s been a great thing to watch in the sense that the president did a fantastic job,” Trump said at a news conference with Santos. “That’s not easy after so many years of war. So I’m very, very proud to get to know you, and I really congratulate you.” During a joint appearance in the East Room, Trump did pledge to continue to work with the Colombian government to target drug traicking networks and reduce coca cultivation and cocaine production. He said he was “highly alarmed” by record levels of coca cultivation and urged the Colombian government to remedy the problem.

FAMILIAR NAME ON FBI LIST Trump said Thursday that he was “very close” to naming a new FBI director to replace the one he fired more than a week ago and that former Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., was among his top choices for the job. Lieberman was among four candidates Trump interviewed at the White House

on Wednesday. “We’re very close to an FBI director,” Trump said when asked about the search during the Oval Oice appearance with Santos. Trump said “soon” when asked how close he was to making an announcement. Trump leaves Friday afternoon on his first overseas trip as president, a fourcountry, five-stop tour that will keep him out of Washington for more than a week. He has said he could name a director before he departs. Lieberman gave reporters a thumbs-up as he left the White House on Wednesday and said he and Trump had a “good meeting.” Trump interviewed three other potential FBI director candidates the same day: former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, former top FBI oicial Richard McFeely and Andrew McCabe. McCabe was tapped to become acting director after Trump dismissed Comey on May 9.

HEADING OUT ON MIDEAST TRIP Trump is leaving Friday for his first foreign trip, to the Mideast and beyond, which aides hope can have the efect of refocusing a White House in disarray. The president’s tweets and comments to the TV anchors drew little reaction from fellow Republicans, who instead joined Democrats in heaping praise on Mueller, a longtime respected lawman who served under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, preceding Comey as head of the FBI. Now Mueller will have nearly unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges. His appointment raises the stakes dramatically in the long-simmering allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 election and had connections with members of the Trump campaign.

paign promise, the administration of President Donald Trump formally told Congress Thursday that it intends to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico. U.S. Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer sent a letter to congressional leaders Thursday, starting 90 days of consultations with lawmakers over how to revamp the pact. Talks with Canada and Mexico can begin after that. The two-page letter ofered few details about what changes the administration would seek in the 23-year-old pact that Trump has called “a disaster.” Lighthizer told reporters that any new deal should do a better job of protecting U.S. factory workers and should be updated to reflect new technologies. Last month, White House aides spread word that Trump was ready to pull out of NAFTA. Within hours, the president reversed course and said that he’d seek a better deal first. “We are going to give renegotiation a good strong shot,” Lighthizer said. He refused to say whether leaving NAFTA remained an option. The trade agreement has been a lightning rod for criticism since it was being negotiated in the early 1990s. During the 1992 presidential campaign, independent candidate Ross Perot famously predicted a “giant sucking sound” as NAFTA pulled U.S. factory jobs south of the border into Mexico. Campaigning last year, Trump vowed to renegotiate NAFTA and pull out of it he couldn’t get a better deal. NAFTA took effect in 1994 and triggered a big increase in trade among the three countries. American farmers have mostly benefited from the reduction in trade barriers. But the pact did encourage American manufacturers to relocate some operations to Mexico to take advantage of cheaper labor there; so critics blame NAFTA for wiping out U.S. factory jobs. “Since the signing of NAFTA, we have seen our manufacturing industry decimated, factories shuttered, and countless workers left jobless,” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement. “President Trump is going to change that.” Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said, “We look forward to working with the administration to strengthen the agreement in a seamless way and ensure that we retain the current benefits for American workers, farmers and businesses.”

TRADE PARTNERS RESPOND Mexico and Canada signaled that they welcomed the opportunity to modernize the agreement. The Mexican government said it “welcomes” the opportunity to renegotiate NAFTA. In a statement, it said: “We reairm our willingness to update the agreement in order to successfully address the challenges of the 21st century. Our countries deserve a modern instrument to regulate our trading and economic relationship.” The Mexican government also said that NAFTA “has been of immense benefit to all parties. We look forward to a constructive process to increase our economic cooperation.” Canada appointed last week a chief negotiator for the trade talks. Gary Hufbauer, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute, said the United States could seek modest “technocratic” changes, including provisions to update NAFTA to reflect technologies that have emerged since the original agreement was negotiated. Or it could take a more aggressive approach, putting pressure on Mexico to reduce the trade gap, perhaps by dropping a value-added tax Mexico slaps on goods coming across the border.

Lawsuit over 911 dispatcher’s deadly mistake can proceed, St. Louis judge rules

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Boy, 13, turns self in after another boy is shot • A 13-year-old boy turned himself in to police after the shooting of another boy Wednesday in St. Louis’ Walnut Park West neighborhood, police said. The injured boy, also 13, was hospitalized in critical condition but was stable, Lt. Daniel Zarrick said at the scene. He was shot in the chest just before 5 p.m. inside a home in the 5900 block of Lalite Avenue, near Riverview Boulevard, police said. Police initially said the shooting appeared to be accidental but later said they were conducting a criminal investigation to pursue all leads. ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Road worker is struck; driver lees • A driver struck a man who was helping with paving work in south St. Louis County early Thursday, then led the scene, St. Louis County police say. The victim, a man, 55, was in critical condition at a hospital. He was part of a crew working to repave the eastbound lanes of Heege Road near New Hampshire Avenue overnight, according to police. He was struck about 12:45 a.m. by a pickup. The truck, which was white with an extended cab, immediately led, according to police. The truck has frontend damage and may be missing the driver’s side headlight. Police did not have a description of the driver. ST. CLAIR COUNTY > Driver killed in crash is identiied • The driver who was killed when his car struck the back of a semi-tractor trailer and then a second vehicle on Interstate 64 near Mascoutah on Wednesday has been identiied as Danny W. Hillis, 72, of the Granite City area. Hillis was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash happened about 8:19 a.m., according to Calvin Dye Jr., spokesman for the Illinois State Police. Hillis was driving at a high rate of speed westbound on Interstate 64 in a 2011 Crown Victoria before the crash, Dye said. A semi-tractor trailer driver saw the speeding vehicle coming up fast behind him and thought the motorist was going to get over into the other lane, but instead it crashed into the rear of his vehicle. The motorist continued speeding down the highway, then struck a second vehicle before losing control of his vehicle and going of the road. ST.

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS > Boy who drowned in pool was visiting from Florida • A boy who drowned in a Fairview Heights hotel pool this week was in town with family for a graduation. St. Clair County Coroner Calvin Dye Sr. identiied the boy as Renard S. Lewis, 12, of Jacksonville, Fla. Renard’s death was ruled a drowning. The boy was swimming with a sister and a brother in a pool at the Drury Inn, 12 Ludwig Drive, on Tuesday morning when he decided to see how long he could hold his breath underwater. When he didn’t come up, relatives pulled him out and tried to revive him. ST. LOUIS > Second woman sues alleging sex crime by masseur • A second woman sued the Four Seasons Spa & Salon, a masseur and others Wednesday, alleging she was sodomized during a massage in August. The woman’s lawsuit says that Kamren M. Holbert groped and sodomized her during a massage at the Lumiére Place Casino and Hotel, at 999 North Second Street on Laclede’s Landing, on Aug. 27. Her attorney, John P. Kujawski, of O’Fallon, Ill., said that she was the same woman whose complaint sparked criminal charges against Holbert. Holbert has pleaded not guilty to the felony charge of second-degree

OPEN TO T

sodomy in that case. His attorney, Scott Rosenblum, said this month that the irst civil suit would not hurt the criminal case and that he was conident in his defense. A civil lawsuit iled this month by a St. Louis woman made a similar claim against Holbert and the hotel, saying that both violated Missouri law and the standards of practice for therapeutic massage. Both suits say that the hotel failed to ensure that staf were properly trained and failed to ensure the women’s safety. The Post-Dispatch generally does not name victims alleging sexual assault. CLAYTON > 2 nabbed after armed robbery • Two suspects were arrested and a loaded handgun was recovered after an armed robbery at the Clayton MetroLink station Thursday, St. Louis County Police say. Oicers responded to a robbery at the station at 275 South Central Avenue at 1:08 p.m., police said. A man told police that he was confronted on the platform by two men. One displayed a handgun and took money from the man. The victim, who was uninjured, then ran for safety and called 911. St. Louis County Police oicers from the MetroLink Unit were riding a train to the Clayton station as the call for service came out. They arrived on scene moments after the incident. By then, the suspects had run of. Clayton Police oicers were in the immediate area and helped apprehend the pair. One of the suspects discarded a loaded handgun, which was recovered by police.

ST. LOUIS • A city police dispatcher who sent oicers to the wrong address during a domestic dispute before an attacker returned and murdered two people may be held liable in civil court for the death of only one of the victims, a St. Louis judge has ruled. Circuit Judge Robert H. Dierker dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit’s claims that Tony Jordan’s murder July 9, 2014, in the 5800 block of Cabanne Avenue could have been prevented if the veteran dispatcher had not misheard the 911 caller’s address and sent police to a home about a block away. Dierker ruled, however, that the lawsuit’s claims that the dispatcher’s error led to the death of the 911 caller herself must go to trial. The killer, Adrian Houston, 39, of University City, was sentenced in January to 20 years in prison after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. Jessica Thompson, 25, was inside her apartment with a male friend when Houston, her boyfriend, showed up. He banged on the doors and windows, entered and choked her. Tony Jordan, 32, the groundskeeper who lived at the apartment complex, went to Thompson’s apartment after hearing screams and told Houston to leave. Thompson called 911 for help. Jordan went outside. The dispatcher, Patricia Sticken, then a 26year veteran of the department, heard Thompson’s address as the 5900 block of Cabanne and

sent oicers there. Police didn’t arrive at Thompson’s apartment until after Jordan and Thompson were shot at her apartment building. A few months after the killings, Jordan and Thompson’s relatives sued the dispatcher, the police department, the city, the former Police Board commissioners and former Mayor Francis Slay, blaming the deaths on the error. Sticken was suspended and later retired. Dierker’s order says the defendants had no duty to protect Jordan and could not have foreseen he was in danger because of Sticken’s error because they couldn’t have known Jordan was outside the apartment some 40 minutes after Thompson called 911 for help. “If defendants are liable to the Jordan plaintifs, they would be liable to anyone who is injured because of a 911 operator’s dispatching error in response to a call,” Dierker wrote. That burden of preventing injury to anyone in the vicinity of crimes being reported via 911 is “incalculable,” he said. Dierker said claims over Thompson’s death must go to trial. “The duty of a 911 operator is limited to those persons who participate in a 911 call and are reporting a danger to themselves,” Dierker wrote. “Otherwise, the duty of 911 system operators to accurately process calls would be universal.” Joel Currier • 314-621-5804 @joelcurrier on Twitter jcurrier@post-dispatch.com

DIGEST New U.S. bank regulator selected President Donald Trump has made his selection for the next full-time head of the Oice of the Comptroller of the Currency, according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Testifying before lawmakers on Thursday, Mnuchin did not name the person tapped for the job but said the decision had been made and the individual is going through background checks before a formal announcement. The comptroller position is being illed by Keith Noreika, an attorney whom Mnuchin named as interim head earlier in May. Noreika replaced Thomas Curry, who had served as comptroller under President Barack Obama. Joseph Otting, who formerly worked as a banking executive at OneWest bank, which Mnuchin once headed, is believed to be the favorite for the position. Mnuchin said that an OCC pick had been made in response to criticism from Democrats, who objected to Trump’s installing a new bank regulator on an interim basis who was not conirmed by the Senate. The Comptroller’s oice writes money-laundering rules, bank charters and closely monitors banks’ lending activities. Former CIA director will testify before House • Former CIA Director John Brennan will appear before the House intelligence committee next week to answer questions about allegations of Russia’s meddling in the presidential election. The committee announced Thursday that Brennan would appear Tuesday at an open session. The House and Senate intelligence committees are looking into Russian interference in last year’s election as well as any coordination that Trump oicials may have had with Russian oicials. Chafetz plans to leave congressional seat • Rep. Jason Chafetz, R-Utah, announced Thursday that he would resign from Congress next month, a move that calls into question the future of the House Oversight Committee’s investigation he promised to lead about President Donald Trump’s iring of the FBI director and his presidential campaign’s ties with Russia. Chafetz made the announcement a day after tweeting that he had invited ex-FBI Director James

Comey to testify next week at a hearing of the oversight committee he chairs. Chafetz, who has just started his ifth term in Congress, used his post as chairman of the oversight committee to doggedly investigate Hillary Clinton before the 2016 presidential election and raise his political proile. But he mainly declined to go after Trump until this week. He has not ruled out running for another oice. He has created a website, jasonchafetz2020, possibly for a run for governor of Utah. Basquiat painting fetches record $110.5 million • An artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat sold for a record $110.5 million at auction in New York. Sotheby’s said the sale of “Untitled” Thursday night in Manhattan was an auction record for the artist. It also set a record price for an American artist at auction. The 1982 painting depicts a face in the shape of a skull. The piece was purchased by noted Japanese collector and entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa after a 10-minute bidding war. He said he planned to eventually display the painting in his museum in Chiba, Japan. Basquiat, the subject of a recent biopic, died of a drug overdose in 1988 at age 27. Man drives drunk in New York State Police Academy parking lot • Authorities say a man has been charged with driving drunk in the parking lot of the New York State Police Academy. State police say an of-duty trooper reported a suspicious person Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot at the academy situated at state police headquarters in Albany. The driver failed a ield sobriety test, registering 0.28 percent; the legal limit for DWI is 0.08. Woman, 105, gets honorary high school diploma • A Pennsylvania woman who said her only regret in life was not inishing high school has received an honorary diploma — at age 105. Theresia Brandl donned a cap and gown Wednesday at her Oakdale nursing home to celebrate, surrounded by four grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and ive great-great-grandchildren. Brandl attended Stowe High School until she had to drop out to care for her ailing mother. The school was later merged with a nearby school, forming Sto-Rox High School, which awarded her the honorary diploma.

Driver in Times Square steers car into pedestrians Navy veteran hearing voices strikes 23; woman, 18, dies BY COLLEEN LONG AND TOM HAYS associated Press

NE W YORK • A man

steered his car onto a sidewalk running through the heart of Times Square and mowed down pedestrians for three blocks Thursday, killing a teenager, and then emerged from his wrecked vehicle wildeyed and waving his arms before he was subdued by police and bystanders. The driver, a Navy veteran, 26, told officers he was hearing voices and expected to die, two law enforcement oicials said. Helpless pedestrians had little time to react as the car barreled down the sidewalk and through intersections before smashing into a row of steel security barriers installed in recent years to prevent vehicle attacks on the square where massive crowds gather every New Year’s Eve. The car came to rest with its two right wheels in the air. “He didn’t stop,” said Asa Lowe, of Brooklyn, who was standing outside a store when he heard screaming as people scattered. “He just kept going.” Police said 23 people were struck by the car, including an 18-year-old tourist from Michigan who died. The woman’s sister, 13, was among the injured. A fire department chief, Mark Foris, was at an unrelated elevator rescue when he saw the car whiz by and called in emergency crews. “This is more than just a car accident,” he recalled thinking as he walked among bleeding pedestrians, doing triage on the spot. “This is a mass casualty incident.” The carnage raised immediate fear of a terrorist attack, but investigators quickly turned their focus to the sobriety and mental health of the driver, identified as Bronx resident Richard Rojas. “There is no indication that this was an act of terrorism,” Mayor Bill de Bla-

sio said. Photographers snapped pictures of Rojas after he climbed from the wrecked car and ran through the street before he was tackled by a group that included a ticket seller and a muscular door supervisor at a nearby Planet Hollywood restaurant. Rojas initially tested negative for alcohol, but more detailed testing was being done to determine if he was high, according to two law enforcement oicials who were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity. The officials said Rojas had told officers he had been hearing voices. A week ago, Rojas was arrested and charged with pointing a knife at a notary, whom he accused of stealing his identity. He pleaded guilty to a harassment violation and was given a conditional discharge. He was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated in 2008 and 2015, police Commissioner James O’Neill

said. He pleaded guilty to an infraction in 2015 and was ordered to complete a drunken-driving program and lost his license for 90 days. In previous arrests, he told authorities he believed he was being harassed and followed, one of the law enforcement oicials said. Police identified the woman killed by the car as Alyssa Elsman, of Portage, Mich. Elsman graduated last year from Portage Northern High School. In the Bronx, neighborhood acquaintances said Rojas was a friendly man who had been having problems. Harrison Ramos said Rojas wasn’t the same when he came back from active duty in 2014. “ He ’s b e e n go i n g through a real tough time,” he said. Thursday’s mayhem began at noon on a hot, clear day that brought large crowds of people into the streets to enjoy the good weather. Police said Rojas had been driving south on Seventh Avenue when

he made a quick U-turn at 42nd Street and drove up the sidewalk for three blocks, passing tourist draws such as the Hard Rock Cafe and the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant. Bruno Carvalho, a student at SUNY Albany, said the car approached quickly and passed him on the sidewalk. “ P e o p l e j u s t go t stunned,” he said. “I don’t think there was actually time for screaming.” Victims had no time to react and scramble for safety in crowded Times Square, said Alpha Balde, a sightseeing-ticket seller. “This place?” Balde said. “Anything happens here. There’s no time for people to get out.” As Rojas ran from his wrecked vehicle, Ken Bradix, a door host supervisor at Planet Hollywood, struck him to get him to stop, Balde said. He and Bradix jumped on top of Rojas, lifted his shirt to make sure he had no weapons and held him until police arrived moments later, Balde said.

Ferreting out vote fraud Chris Kobach will ind it, even if it doesn’t exist.

A

mid a firestorm of controversy last week over President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, the administration announced formation of a new commission on “election integrity.” It seemed an amateurish attempt to deflect national attention from the president’s growing credibility problems regarding Russian influence on his presidential campaign and his reasons for firing the person in charge of investigating it. Doubly absurd was his naming of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to serve as the deputy head of the commission under Vice President Mike Pence. Republican Kobach’s record of attempting to suppress votes of minorities and young people in Kansas is legendary. Putting Kobach in charge of election integrity is like putting Russian President Vladimir Putin in charge of U.S. internet security. The White House’s goal with the new commission apparently is to come up with any examples they can of voter fraud in the Nov. 8 elections. Trump has tweeted his frustration about losing the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton, alleging without proof that, if not for “millions” of fraudulent ballots cast for Clinton, the popular vote would have swung to him. The commission’s mandate, it appears, is to dig up some proof. Good luck with that. Since taking office six years ago, Kobach has successfully prosecuted nine cases of voter fraud, even though he alleged in his 2010 campaign that

“the illegal registration of alien voters has become pervasive.” Most of his nine convictions involved people who voted in two states. Against a backdrop of 1.8 million registered voters in Kansas, that’s hardly pervasive. This is exactly the kind of exaggerated, party-slanted, predetermined outcome that undermines the commission’s credibility before its work even begins. How could it be that election fraud occurred to the extent Trump and Kobach allege without being detected and reported by election authorities — including Republicans? At most, the commission will uncover minimal evidence of widespread voter fraud. American taxpayers will have every right to ask why the president is wasting their money on such a sham investigation. The clear goal here is to come up with legal justification to stiffen ID requirements at polling stations as a way of excluding sectors of the public most likely to vote Democratic but least likely to have a driver’s license, including the poor, minorities and college-age voters. The Supreme Court decided Monday that it would let stand a lower court’s ruling on a North Carolina voter ID law deemed unconstitutional because it was designed to “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision.” A federal court ruled in April that a similar law in Texas was unconstitutional. There could be no clearer warning to Republicans that these tactics won’t work. But with Kobach on the case, why let pesky court rulings get in the way?

Trump’s runaway mouth Ill-considered words about Muslim ban come back to haunt him.

W

ith each passing day, it becomes more apparent that President Donald Trump’s worst enemy is President Donald Trump. The filtration system that normally stops self-destructive thoughts from escaping the brain and exiting via the mouth seems to have broken down with Trump. He talks or tweets first and thinks about the repercussions later. This week’s fiasco regarding the highly classified intelligence that Trump passed to top Russian officials is only the latest example of how the president undermines his goals, and national security, with his own words. He has no one to blame but himself. Amid that controversy, much public attention was diverted from an important case playing out in a three-judge federal appeals court in Seattle on Monday, where the president’s revised effort to ban immigrants from six Muslim-dominated countries was under scrutiny. Once again, Trump’s mouth got in the way of the government solicitor’s best efforts to defend him. During the presidential campaign, Trump was explicit about his plans for controlling immigration if he won the Nov. 8 election. He stated that his intention wasn’t just to improve vetting to keep terrorists out. He planned to ban Muslims. Trump felt strongly enough about it that he placed it on his campaign website, where it remained under the headline, “Donald J. Trump statement on preventing Muslim immigration.” “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims

entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” the statement said. A reporter last week asked White House spokesman Sean Spicer why the statement was still on the campaign website. Shortly afterward it was removed. During Monday’s court session, Judge Michael Daly Hawkins asked Jeffrey Wall, the U.S. solicitor general, whether Trump had ever disavowed those campaign remarks. Wall said the president had “clarified” that he wanted to ban terrorist groups, not Muslims in general. That was a reach. The ban itself doesn’t mention Muslims. But since the president had already declared his intentions, the Seattle judges asked, how can those statements be ignored? There is nothing vague about “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” If the words weren’t damning, then why were they scrubbed as soon as they came to the administration’s attention? The words go to the heart of Trump’s unfiltered thinking process — the same process that got him into trouble with his abusive talk about women, his intelligence revelations to the Russians and his goofy handling of the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Trump’s inflated ego simply will not allow him to accept that he needs advisers, lawyers, political strategists and professional spokespeople to save him from himself. Less than 150 days into his presidency, Trump still insists on learning the hard way. Except that there’s little apparent learning involved.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS We need more monuments to teach youth about history What is to be accomplished by removing Forest Park’s Confederate Memorial? More to the point, what is to be learned? If our monuments meet only the standard of flavor-of-the-day, how much thinking can we expect to occur in the minds of those who happen upon them as they enjoy our grandest urban park? What we need is more monuments, not fewer, and definitely not the removal of those that allow our youth to see how far we’ve come from the bad old days. Why not an explanatory plaque next to the existing, supposedly ofensive, Confederate Memorial, briefly explaining Missouri’s border-state, slave-state history? And that as diicult as it is today to understand, that millions in Missouri and the South believed back then that the Civil War was a second War of Independence, from a government in Washington grown too powerful? This might remind some of present-day arguments. Given the little history that our youth today appear to learn in school, why deny them this opportunity? The plaque by the Confederate Memorial should then direct viewers to walk a couple hundred yards south and east, to the equestrian statue of Gen. Franz Sigel, who led so many German-Americans of Missouri in bloody battles to save the Union and free the slaves. And then east, near the Chase, to the statue of Frank Preston Blair Jr., who raised Missouri’s first infantry regiment to fight against secessionists. Edward Bates, who served in President Abraham Lincoln’s Cabinet, stands elsewhere in the park. Imagine a creative teacher, walking kids between monuments and telling them of the past, not just what we like in the present. And, sometime soon, to a new monument dedicated to the almost 200,000 black soldiers who served gallantly in that same terrible war. Dennis Coello • Des Peres

Mayor should rethink priorities, focus on city’s crime Mayor Lyda Krewson needs to stop and rethink her priorities (“Confederate Memorial must go, Krewson says,” May 17). The Confederate Memorial represents part of our country’s history. Will tearing down this monument make the historical events that took place be different? Is she also planning to go to all the schools in St. Louis and tear out all the pages from the history books that make reference to Confederacy or to the Civil War? You should not try to rewrite or to obscure history or historical events; you should make an efort to learn from them. Mayor Krewson should read each of the Post-Dispatch newspapers from this past week, and this should be her guide to set her priorities. She should count the number of shootings, murders, robberies, carjackings and all of the other criminal activity that has been reported, and she will have her priorities in focus. Many people living in the area will no longer attend events in the city because of crime. The mayor doesn’t need to be concerned if these people see the Confederate Memorial, since they don’t want to risk their lives by going to the city. Len Poli • Cedar Hill

Union is still divided after all these years Mayor Lyda Krewson would do well to focus her sights on improving the safety and prosperity of our city. Instead, she is adding fuel to divisiveness by leading those who would remove the Confederate Memorial, which has stood in Forest Park for over 100 years (“Confederate Memorial must go, Krewson says,” May 17).

It was erected by Confederate women to honor those who fought in the Civil War: their fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. Not far away is a statue of Gen. Franz Sigel on horseback, a monument honoring the men who wore blue who died in the same war. Can we not remember the human toll of this terrible war on all Americans and resolve to do better? Abraham Lincoln would cry if he knew the state of our union today ... and how divided we still are. Joyce Maret Fletcher • Clayton

Paper shows bias in reporting on Confederate monuments I noted that in the article about Mayor Lyda Krewson wanting to remove the Confederate Memorial that opponents of similar actions in other cities were listed as “white supremacists, alt-right activists and some Republican politicians” (“Confederate Memorial must go, Krewson says,” May 17). Would it not be equally accurate to say supporters of such actions are black supremacists, Black Lives Matter members and some Democratic politicians? The paper needs to recognize its bias. Charles Freeman • Festus

What’s next when it comes to destroying history? “Confederate Memorial must go, Krewson says” reads the front-page headline in Wednesday’s edition of the PostDispatch. Critics of Confederate statues say they shouldn’t be displayed in places of honor because of their connection to slavery and white supremacy. And I agree. So to do my part, I’m soliciting volunteers who feel the same way to pick up a hammer and chisel and join me in a trek to Mount Rushmore to remove the faces of two prominent slave owners from that place of honor: George Washington and Thomas Jeferson. Once we finish there, we’ll travel back to St. Louis and take a bulldozer to Washington University, the Arch (which is part of the Jeferson National Expansion Memorial) and any other structure named after these demons of history. With luck, others will rise up and destroy every monument to slaveholders. And when that crusade is finished, we’ll go to work on those who perpetrated the genocide of Native Americans. Let’s all get behind the destruction of history. Steve Fehr • Wildwood

Rededicate monument with new text Rather than remove the Confederate Memorial from Forest Park, why don’t we mill or grind off all its text? I believe that the figures and ornaments on the monument are rather generic and allegorical and could remain, or be modified with some minimal metalworking. These expunged surfaces could be reengraved or overlaid with bronze plates with new text that commemorates all the victims of our tragic Civil War and airms the enduring freedoms that resulted and that we are still working for today. Simply removing a monument is a feeble start to healing the racial inequalities and problems of St. Louis. The resources to do this could be applied more effectively to other efforts, and thus avoid an ignorant gesture of denying history and the Confederacy. However, a rededication of this monument might provide a focal point to re-energize our continuing efforts to improve the lives of our citizens.

Rod Rosenstein saves the Republican Party from itself Deputy attorney general does the right thing in appointing an independent special counsel. DANA MILBANK Washington Post

With the stroke of a pen, Rod Rosenstein redeemed his reputation, preserved the justice system, pulled American politics back from the brink — and, just possibly, saved the Republican Party and President Trump from themselves. The deputy attorney general’s memo Wednesday night announcing that he had appointed Robert Mueller as special prosecutor to investigate the Trump administration’s ties to Russia was pitch perfect in its simple justification: While he has not determined that any crime has been committed, he wrote that “based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.” This is precisely what Rosenstein needed to do for all parties, but particularly for his own honor. Rosenstein, just two weeks into the job, had trashed the reputation

he had built over the years as a fair-minded and above-the-fray prosecutor by allowing Trump to use him as cover for Trump’s own decision to sack FBI Director James Comey. Many who admired Rosenstein were stunned that he would let himself be used this way; I argued last week that “if he cares at all about rehabilitating the reputation he built, Rosenstein has one option: He can appoint a serious, independent and above-reproach special counsel — the sort of person Rosenstein was seen as, until this week — to continue the Russia probe.” In tapping Mueller — a solid figure who served ably as FBI director under two presidents — that’s what Rosenstein did. Rosenstein also restores some confidence in a justice system that has been much abused by Trump’s assaults on “so-called” judges. That system was gravely wounded by Comey’s firing, ordered by Trump and overseen by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was supposed to have recused himself from the Russia probe but decided it was just fine to recommend the firing of the man overseeing that investigation and choose his replacement. The deputy attorney general’s decision also reduces partisan

pressures that were very clearly harming the national interest. Republicans had gone into a crouch to protect against any suggestion that Trump and his advisers colluded with the Russians. Democrats were often leaping to conclude that there was high-level collusion. And nearly everybody had lost track of the most important issue: Russia, arguably our leading global adversary, had successfully meddled in a U.S. presidential election — undermining confidence in our system of government — and was ready to do it again. In this sense, Rosenstein also did a favor for congressional Republicans. A minority of GOP lawmakers had begun to see the urgency of putting country before party. But, shamefully, GOP leaders had been in denial. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was steadfast

against an independent prosecutor or commission, and House Speaker Paul Ryan continued to tether himself and his party to Trump. At a news conference Wednesday morning, Ryan, reading from a typewritten statement, gave what amounted to a generous Trump defense. It was a huge gamble by the top Republican in Congress. Ryan’s defense of Trump is a calculation that Trump will ride out the troubles. He is betting his political fortunes — and perhaps his party’s hold on the House — on a man who has provided very little justification for trust. Rosenstein’s action rescues Ryan, McConnell and other GOP leaders from their own cowardice in refusing to demand more accountability from Trump. If past is prologue, Mueller’s investigation will be a huge distraction for the White House as everybody “lawyers up” and attention shifts from what remains of Trump’s agenda to the latest twists and turns that can be discerned. But Trump’s agenda was already moribund. Just a few months into his presidency, Trump has already amassed a collection of scandals and failures that most presidents

take years to acquire. The Mueller appointment, at least, gives the Trump White House a chance to compartmentalize the scandals. And, crucially, it provides one more watchdog keeping Trump’s autocratic instincts from getting the better of him — and the rest of us. These first months of the Trump administration have tested the strength of America’s democratic institutions. The good news is it appears those institutions are holding. The press has been at its best, uncovering the alarming truths about Trump’s Russia ties. Some brave patriots in intelligence and law enforcement and elsewhere in the federal government have taken risks to get the facts out. A few courageous lawmakers defied their party leaders and president. And now, finally, we see that one of Trump’s high-level appointees had the courage to defy him. It’s often said that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. On Wednesday night, Rod Rosenstein did something.

President Donald Trump poses with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Oice on May 10.

he Kislyak connection My meeting with Russia’s ambassador ofered a glimpse of things to come. TOD ROBBERSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It’s time to come clean about my Russia connection. I have, in fact, met privately with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. We discussed intelligence matters, questions of Russian meddling and efforts to deceive the American people. During our hourlong interview in June 2014, Kislyak was charming but also crafty, manipulative and evasive. Yet his words offered an ominous glimpse of things to come in U.S.-Russian relations. I knew to be on my guard at all times because Kislyak’s experience dated back deep into the Cold War, when diplomats were spies and spies were diplomats. I emerged from the meeting wondering why anyone, anywhere, would ever trust someone like him. At the time, Kislyak was being shunned all around Washington, which is probably why he would agree to meet with someone as lowly as I. Kislyak’s shunning ended last week when President Donald Trump not only invited him into the Oval Office along with Russia’s foreign minister but also presented a beaming smile as he shook Kislyak’s hand while a Russian government photographer snapped a photo. Only three months before our Dallas meeting, Russia had launched a secret invasion of Ukraine to seize the Crimean Peninsula and annex it. Russia had amassed thousands of troops on the border with eastern Ukraine and was actively arming and assisting separatist rebels there. A month after our meeting, a surface-to-air rocket, manufactured and trucked in from Russia and fired from rebel-held territory, would shoot down a Malaysian passenger jumbo jet, killing all 283 aboard. Russia would do

everything in its power to obstruct investigations into that atrocity. Also at that time, Syrian dictator Bashar Assad was escalating efforts to put down an armed rebellion, including the use of chemical weapons. Russia stood alongside Hezbollah and Iran in Assad’s defense. Pick just about anything bad going on in the world, and Moscow seemed more likely than not to be on the side of bad. I couldn’t wait to dig in on these controversies when Kislyak sat down opposite me at a Dallas Morning News boardroom table in an interview arranged by the World Affairs Council of DallasFort Worth. Kislyak started by trying to justify Russian armed intervention in Ukraine, saying the “legitimate” (that is, pro-Moscow) government in Kiev had been overthrown. He sidestepped whether Russia’s military and intelligence had created and armed the separatist movement, a blatant violation of Ukrainian sovereignty. As for Crimea, Kislyak was matter-of-fact.“Some people had to organize themselves into a resistance” in Crimea because of the Kiev government’s oppression, he said.“We also had armed forces there, and those armed forces were there under agreement with the Ukrainians for years and years. We had to think about protecting ourselves there because the situation was developing in a very, very chaotic way. The presence of Russian forces certainly made sure a lot of things happened in a very peaceful way because all these threats to attack these people were neutralized with not a single shot fired — just because we were there.” In fact, I noted, Crimea was not the scene of chaos. There was no legal justification for Russian troops to leave their naval base and take positions on the streets for a military takeover. He countered: “We didn’t know whether our forces would be threatened. So they repositioned themselves. They didn’t

participate, as you call it, in military operations. What they were doing was just being there, protecting our people and protecting the local people against provocations.” Regarding international outrage and imposition of sanctions, Kislyak said,“Some people call it an illegal annexation. First of all, it’s not annexation, and you cannot deal with this issue like a piece of real estate. … It’s about people who have the right of selfdetermination, and it’s enshrined in the U.N. charter.” I asked Kislyak about Russian meddling in the affairs of other nations. His response: “It depends on how you define meddling.” He said that certain stereotypes had developed as a result of growing tension between Washington and Moscow. Such as? “No matter what Russia does, it is a threat to the United States. That Russia is working against the American interests,” he said. Imposing sanctions was “something that doesn’t have any practical consequences except for poisoning the atmosphere in our relations. It certainly creates a significant reaction in Russia.” He added ominously: “That’s something I hope is going to be fixed in the future. How long it will take, I don’t know.” We now know how long it took. Russia meddled mightily in the Nov. 8 presidential elections, probably with Kislyak’s support. Moscow got its man elected to the presidency. And even as that man was firing the FBI director and fending off an investigation into Russian election meddling, Trump found the time to invite Kislyak in for an Oval Office visit. The chaos engulfing Washington has Kislyak’s ample thumbprint all over it. I’m sure Vladimir Putin couldn’t be happier.

There is really only one issue in American politics at this moment: Will we accelerate our way to the end of the Trump story, or will our government remain mired in scandal, misdirection and paralysis for many more months — or even years? There is a large irony in the politics behind this question. The Democrats’ narrow interest lies in having President Trump hang around as close to the 2018 midterm elections as possible. Yet they are urging steps that could get this resolved sooner rather than later. Republicans would likely be better off if Trump were pushed off the stage. Yet up to now, they have been dragging their feet. The reports that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn may finally be concentrating Republican minds. They certainly focused the decision-making of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who announced late Wednesday afternoon that he was naming former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to investigate possible coordination between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian interference in the election. Speaker Paul Ryan signaled the changed mood earlier in the day not by what he said but by what he didn’t. Ryan has been embarrassingly eager to defend Trump, but he did not rush to his support this time. Instead, Ryan called for a “sober” and “dispassionate” response, warned against “rushing to judgment,” and insisted that “our job is to get the facts.” When word got out (probably from Comey or his sympathizers) of what Trump had said to the FBI director about Flynn, Republicans (like Rosenstein) were left with no choice but to pursue the matter further. The speaker only expressed faith in Trump when prompted by a shouted question at the end of his news conference. After some thought, he replied with a soft “I do” when asked if he had “full confidence” in the president. Nothing could be worse than slow-walking the Trump inquiries. The evidence is already overwhelming that he is temperamentally and intellectually incapable of doing the job he holds. He is indifferent to acquiring the knowledge the presidency demands and apparently of the belief that he can improvise hour to hour. He will violate norms whenever it suits him and cross ethical lines whenever he feels

like it. He also lies a lot, and has been perfectly happy to burn the credibility of anyone who works for him. White House statements are about as believable as those issued regularly by the Kremlin. And Trump’s friend Vladimir Putin could not resist interfering yet again in our politics. Putin offered to provide Congress with a record of our president’s meeting with top Russian diplomats to shed light on exactly what highly classified intelligence information Trump shared with them. Adding to the insult, the Russian leader spoke of a “political schizophrenia” taking hold in the United States that was “eliciting concern” in his country. Perhaps Putin’s taunt will elicit increasing concern among Republicans that our nation cannot endure much more of this. The surest sign that the bottom is falling out from under Trump was a Wall Street Journal editorial that declared flatly: “Presidencies can withstand only so much turbulence before they come apart.” The Journal warned that Trump was on the verge of betraying his supporters,“as his presidency sinks before his eyes.” Any GOP leader losing the support of the semi-official organ of Republican conservatism should know that his partisans are headed to the exit ramps. But how can we speed our nation’s escape from the catastrophe Trump has created? The Senate Intelligence Committee took an important step by announcing a bipartisan invitation to Comey to testify. The sooner he tells his story, the better. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., proposed that both parties demand that Congress get any memos, tapes and transcripts shedding light on Trump’s meetings with the Russian diplomats and with Comey. The naming of an independent counsel cannot become an excuse to pull back on congressional fact-finding. The country needs to know if there was collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia whether or not a crime was committed. And Democrats should ask Republicans to join them in pledging opposition to any appointee to head the FBI who is not universally seen as immune to Trump’s influence. It shows how far along we are that fears are already being voiced of a political backlash from his supporters if Trump is railroaded out of office. But delaying the process of getting to the truth will harm our country far more. And Republicans who throw up roadblocks will be hurt most of all.

ROGER AILES

Fox News founder changed TV news He created cable news outlet after challenge from media titan Rupert Murdoch BY FRAZIER MOORE associated Press

NEW YORK • Roger Ailes, the

communications maestro who transformed television news and America’s political conversation by creating and ruling Fox News Channel for two decades before being ousted last year for alleged sexual harassment, died Thursday (May 18, 2017), according to his wife, Elizabeth Ailes. He was 77. Mr. Ailes died after a fall at his Palm Beach, Fla., home on May 10 caused bleeding on the brain, the Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Oice said. Mr. Ailes fell in his bathroom, hit his head and was bleeding profusely. He was taken to a hospital by attending paramedics, the Palm Beach Police Department said. A former GOP operative to candidates including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and a onetime adviser to President Donald Trump, Mr. Ailes displayed a mastery of modern messaging early in his career. Then he changed the face of 24-hour news when, in 1996, he accepted a challenge from media titan Rupert Murdoch to build a news network from scratch to compete with CNN and other TV outlets they deemed left-leaning. That October, Mr. Ailes flipped the switch on Fox News Channel, which within a few years became the audience leader in cable news. Mr. Ailes branded the network “Fair and Balanced” and declared he had left the political world behind, but conservative viewers found a home and lifted prime-time commentators Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity to the top of the news ratings. “He has dramatically and forever changed the political and the media landscape single-

Roger Ailes (left) speaks at a news conference in 1996 as Rupert Murdoch looks on after it was announced that Ailes would be chairman and CEO of Fox News. Ailes ran Fox News until being ousted last year amid allegations of sexual harassment. He died Thursday at the age of 77.

handedly for the better,” Hannity tweeted on Thursday. Fox News and 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch called Mr. Ailes “a brilliant broadcaster (who) played a huge role in shaping America’s media over the last thirty years” in a statement. “He will be remembered by the many people on both sides of the camera that he discovered, nurtured and promoted,” Murdoch said. “Roger and I shared a big idea which he executed in a way no one else could have. In addition, Roger was a great patriot who never ceased fighting for his beliefs.” Many laid the nation’s political dysfunction and inability to find

common ground at his feet, creating the atmosphere for Trump to succeed. “It’s a very complicated story,” said Gabriel Sherman, author of the Ailes biography, “The Loudest Voice in the Room.” “He is in some ways a genius and in some ways tragic. His quest for power consumed him.” By mid-2016 Mr. Ailes still ruled supreme as he prepared to celebrate Fox News’ 20th anniversary. But in little more than two weeks, both his legacy and job unraveled after allegations by a former anchor that he had forced her out of Fox News after she spurned his sexual advances. The lawsuit filed on July 6 by

Gretchen Carlson quickly triggered accounts from more than 20 women with similar stories of alleged harassment by Mr. Ailes either against themselves or someone they knew. Reportedly, a key witness was Megyn Kelly, the network’s superstar personality, whose voice was conspicuously missing in the chorus of women and men at Fox News who spoke up on behalf of Mr. Ailes. Their defense did little to staunch the widening scandal. Despite Mr. Ailes’ staunch denials, 21st Century Fox corporate head Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, determined that Mr. Ailes had to go. The announcement was made on July 21.

The allegations went beyond just Mr. Ailes: In April, reports that the network had settled lawsuits with five women who alleged sexual harassment against network star O’Reilly led to his firing. Three other executives also lost their jobs. Before Carlson’s bombshell legal action, Fox’s roaring success and enormous earnings (with some estimates that it accounted for nearly a quarter of the parent company’s profits) insulated Mr. Ailes from any suspicion as well as from his past scrapes with the Murdoch sons over whom he would report to. His dismissal was a headspinning downfall and a breathtaking defeat for Mr. Ailes, a man who all his life seemed to be spoiling for a fight and was used to winning them. Mr. Ailes was a brawler. And even when he was on the winning side of a battle, he positioned himself as the defiant outsider going toe-to-toe with his bullying nemeses. Brash, heavyset and bombastic, he was renowned for never giving in, for being ever confrontational with a chip on his shoulder and a blistering outburst at the ready. When he founded Fox News Network, Mr. Ailes’ stated mission was to correct for the sins of a media universe that was overwhelmingly liberal. Pledging fairness from his employees shortly before the network launched, he was typically tough talking: “Will they hit it every time? Hell, no. Will they try? Hell, yes. Will we be criticized? Hell, yes. Do I care? Hell, no.” As usual, he had defined the enemy (in this case, his media critics and other presumed foes) before they could define themselves. It was his crowning principle.

CHRIS CORNELL

Lauded rocker found dead after Detroit performance Lead singer for Soundgarden, Audioslave reportedly hanged himself in hotel room POINTFEST CANCELED

BY MESFIN FEKADU AND COREY WILLIAMS associated Press

DETROIT • “In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn; All I want for you to do is take my body home …” CNN reports those were the opening lines to the last song Chris Cornell ever sang on stage. It was a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dying.” Mr. Cornell and his band Soundgarden have covered the song before and they performed it again to close out the show at Detroit’s Fox Theater on Wednesday. Hours later, Mr. Cornell was found dead. He was 52. Mr. Cornell, one of the most lauded and respected contemporary lead singers in rock music with his bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, appears to have hanged himself Wednesday (May 17, 2017) in a Detroit hotel room, according to the city’s medical examiner. The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office said Thursday that a preliminary autopsy ruled the death as possible suicide. But a more complete autopsy had not been completed. A police spokesman told two Detroit newspapers that the singer was found with a band around his neck.

FANS, FAMILY SHOCKED Mr. Cornell’s death stunned his family and his die-hard fans. Soundgarden’s current tour kicked off in late April and was planned to run through May 27. He was found dead at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel by a family friend who went to his room after Mr. Cornell’s wife asked him to check on the singer, police said. Mr. Cornell was a leader of the grunge movement with Seattle-based Soundgarden — with whom he gained critical and commercial acclaim — but also found success outside the band with other projects, including

His voice was powerful and memorable, and he was a skilled songwriter, even collaborating on a number of movie soundtracks, including the James Bond theme song for 2006’s “Casino Royale” and “The Keeper” from the movie “Machine Gun Preacher,” which earned Mr. Cornell a Golden Globe nomination. Still, throughout his career, he was haunted by drugs. Mr. Cornell, who grew up in Seattle, said he started using drugs at age 13 and was kicked out of school at 15. “I went from being a daily drug user at 13 to having bad drug experiences and quitting drugs by

the time I was 14 and then not having any friends until the time I was 16,” he told Rolling Stone in 1994. “There was about two years where I was more or less agoraphobic and didn’t deal with anybody, didn’t talk to anybody, didn’t have any friends at all. All the friends that I had were still (messed) up with drugs and were people that I didn’t really have anything in common with.” But at 16 he grew serious about music, learning to play the drums while also working as a busboy and dishwasher. “That was the toughest time in my life,” he told Rolling Stone. He eventually became a Grammy winner with Soundgarden, formed in 1984 and coming out of the rapidly growing Seattle music scene, which included Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

“There’s something about Seattle, it’s always been a hard rock town, too. I didn’t realize growing up as kid that Seattle had much more of a hard rock focus and a guitar rock focus than other cities did,” Mr. Cornell told the AP in 2011. The band marked a mainstream breakthrough with “Superunknown,” its 1994 album that won two Grammys, sold more than five million albums in the U.S., and launched five hits, including “Black Hole Sun,” one of the most popular alternative rock songs from the 1990s. The group, formed with guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Hiro Yamamoto, broke up in 1997. In 2001, Mr. Cornell joined Audioslave, a supergroup that included former Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello,

Hunter, who also took an early stance against pesticide exposure, sharing information with “Silent Spring” author Rachel Carson, died Wednesday (May 17, 2017) in hospice care in Hillsborough, N.H. A New York City native, she and

her husband turned their home in Deering, N.H.,into an inn in the summer, exposing city dwellers to organic and natural foods. When “The Natural Foods Cookbook” came out, Ms. Trum Hunter said she attracted some

criticism because she wasn’t using processed foods. She said others thought of her as a “crank.” Through the years, though, the book has become a classic. In all, Ms. Trum Hunter wrote 38 books, including “Gardening

Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford. The band released three albums in six years and also performed at a concert billed as Cuba’s first outdoor rock concert by an American band, though some Cuban artists have disputed that claim. Audioslave disbanded in 2007, but Mr. Cornell and Soundgarden reunited in 2010 and released the band’s sixth studio album, “King Animal” in 2012. Mr. Cornell collaborated with members of what would become Pearl Jam to form Temple of the Dog, which produced a self-titled album in 1991 in tribute to friend Andrew Wood, former frontman of Mother Love Bone. In 2011, Mr. Cornell was ranked ninth on Rolling Stone list of the best lead singers of all-time, selected by its readers. He also released solo albums, and Nielsen Music said that as a band member and solo act, the singer sold almost 15 million albums and 8.8 million digital songs in the U.S. His first solo album, 1999’s “Euphoria Morning,” was a dark album that was initially supposed to be titled “Euphoria Mourning.” “It was a pretty dark album lyrically and pretty depressing, and I was going through a really difficult time in my life — my band wasn’t together anymore, my marriage was falling apart and I was dealing with it by drinking way too much, and that has its own problems, particularly with depression,” he told Rolling Stone in 2015.

U.S. strikes advancing pro-Syrian forces Attack came in ‘de-conliction zone’ near where U.S., British, Norwegian troops are stationed BY NABIH BULOS AND W.J. HENNIGAN Tribune Washington Bureau

BEIRUT • Acting to pro-

tect American forces based in the region, U.S. warplanes struck on Thursday forces believed to be loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad, officials said, in what was viewed as another sign of escalating U.S. engagement in the civil war ravaging Syria. The airstrikes mark the first time the U.S. military has deliberately hit pro-government forces in response to a perceived threat against American troops. The number of U.S. forces in Syria has steadily increased in recent months. The U.S.-led coalition in Syria said in a statement Thursday evening that it had struck “pro-regime forces that were advancing well inside an established de-confliction zone” near the city of Tanf on the Iraq-Syria border. The border crossing in Tanf is home to a garrison where U.S., British and Norwegian troops have been working for months with a Syrian rebel faction, named the Army of the Revolution’s Commandos. It is intended to serve as a

our role in the Syrian civil war, but we will defend our troops,” Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday at the Pentagon. “And that is a coalition element made up of more than just U.S. troops, and so we will defend ourselves (if) people take aggressive steps against us.” U.S. commanders be-

the matter publicly. The Syrian troops had also ignored a “show of force” and “warning shots” fired by coalition aircraft. “The agreed-upon deconfliction zone agreement remains in effect,” the coalition statement said. The U.S. military does

not speak with the Syrian government, so U.S. military commanders at an air command center in Qatar called their Russian counterparts on a special hotline set up to ensure the two countries’ pilots will not mistakenly run into one another. After warning the Russians, the U.S. planes flew near the Syrian ground forces and fired a warning shot, the oicials said. After the ground forces continued their activity, the planes carried out the airstrike, they said. It was unclear whether the advancing forces were Syrian army troops or other pro-government allies, but they were flying Syrian flags and began constructing berms and fighting positions, oicials said. There was no confirmation of the attack by Syrian government media. Moza h e m Sa l l o u m , spokesman for the Army of the Revolution’s Commandos, said in a Facebook post that 17 vehicles were destroyed, including four tanks. Other activists said eight people had been killed and two were wounded.

China will ban dog meat sales at notorious festival Activists win 1-week reprieve for canines BY JONATHAN KAIMAN Los Angeles Times

BEIJING • Chinese authorities have banned dog meat sales at the country’s notorious Yulin dog-eating

festival, two U.S. nonprofit organizations reported Wednesday. The annual festival in Yulin, in southwestern China’s Guangxi province, has in recent years emerged as a lightning rod for animal rights activism, granting the sleepy city a degree of global infamy. Activists say thousands of dogs — some of them ab-

ducted pets — are slaughtered at the festival each year; they’re served alongside lychees and grain alcohol to mark the summer solstice. The Yulin government has banned the city’s dog meat vendors from selling the meat for one week starting June 15, the U.S.based Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project and Hu-

Welfare Project, said in the statement. The organizations attributed the change to Yulin’s new Communist Party secretary, Mo Gongming, who reportedly wants to improve Yulin’s national and international image. Penalties, they said, include a fine of up to $14,500 and jail time. The report could not be

mane Society International said in a joint statement, citing unidentified local contacts. The 10-day festival is slated to begin on June 21. “Even if this is a temporary ban, we hope this will have a domino efect, leading to the collapse of the dog meat trade,” Andrea Gung, executive director of the Duo Duo Animal

independently verified. A man who answered the phone at the Yulin municipal government, which has never openly supported the festival, denied that it even existed. “There’s never been a dog meat festival in Yulin,” said the man, who only gave his surname, Luo. The festival’s existence is well-documented.

Prince William pays tribute to Diana Prince William has paid tribute to his mother, the late Princess Diana, while presenting awards honoring her faith in the power of young people. William said his mother “touched the lives of millions” during her life and still inspires “countless acts of compassion and bravery” two decades after her death in a car crash. William and his brother, Prince Harry, presented the Legacy Award to 20 teenagers from around the world in London on Thursday. Referring to Diana’s age when she died in 1997 — “only 36, just slightly older than I am today” — he said that while he would never know what else she might have accomplished, “Harry and I feel that our mother lives on in the countless acts of compassion and bravery that she inspires in others.” Brazilian leader refuses to resign in face of scandal • Brazilian President Michel Temer rejected on Thursday calls for his resignation, saying he will ight allegations that he endorsed the paying of hush money to a former lawmaker jailed for corruption. Even in this country weary from the constant drip of revelations of a wide-ranging corruption investigation, the incendiary accusation set of a irestorm and Brazil’s highest court opened an investigation. Israeli, U.S. spies upset by Trump intel-sharing with Russia • The United States and Israel are trying to move past President Donald Trump’s apparent sharing of Israeli intelligence with Russia. But American and Israeli spy professionals say they’re frustrated and fearful about the repercussions to the U.S.-Israeli intelligence partnership. During a recent meeting with two Russian oicials, Trump shared information about an Islamic State threat involving laptops on

airplanes. The U.S.-Israeli partnership is critical because Israel has spies in parts of the Mideast where the U.S. doesn’t. Israel also has robust cyber capabilities in the region. Former intelligence oicials worry Israel will be more reluctant to share highly classiied information with the Trump administration, especially if it could endanger spies. U.W. sanctions Venezuelan high court • The U.S. has slapped new sanctions on eight members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court, accusing them of abusing power and damaging their nation’s democratic fabric as the Trump administration raises concerns that socialist President Nicolas Maduro is moving toward one-party, authoritarian rule. Those blacklisted by the Treasury Department

include Maikel Moreno, the president of Supreme Court, as well as all seven justices. “The Venezuelan people are sufering from a collapsing economy brought about by their government’s mismanagement and corruption. Members of the country’s Supreme Court of Justice have exacerbated the situation by consistently interfering with the legislative branch’s authority,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. Mexican diplomat vows to defend immigrants • Luis Videgaray, Mexico’s foreign relations minister, has pledged to legally defend immigrants against Texas’ tough new “sanctuary cities” law. Mexican immigrants are living in “unprecedented times” with spreading fear and anxiety, Videgaray said. From news services

U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price walks through a densely populated slum in Monrovia, Liberia, on Thursday. The area was quarantined in 2014 when Ebola killed dozens there.

BY JONATHAN PAYE-LAYLEH associated Press

MONROVIA, LIBERIA • U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price made his first trip overseas on Thursday, to Liberia, the West African country where Ebola killed more than 4,800 people. Price praised Liberia for its “remarkable cooperation” on health care issues. The U.S. sent troops into the country to intervene to help stop the outbreak, which killed more than 11,300 people, most of them in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. The World Health Organization declared an end to the world’s deadliest outbreak of the virus last June. Now a new outbreak, the first since the one in West Africa, has been blamed for three deaths in a remote area of Congo. Price, who did not address the latest outbreak, toured the West Point neighborhood, which was hit hard by the hemorrhagic fever in 2014. Dr. Mosoka Fallah, a Liberian health ministry official, told Price there had been resistance

from people there to report for testing. “People said the Ebola situation was one-way traic ... people go to the (Ebola Treatment Units) but don’t come back alive,” Fallah said. Ebola survivor Mohammed Kromah told Price how he spent almost two months at a treatment center. He showed the U.S. official his Ebola-free certificate, which was greeted with wide applause. Price also met with health workers at Redemption Hospital, where Liberia’s first Ebola death was recorded in 2014. “I was so moved when we were at West Point, with Dr. Fallah sharing his story and the emotion of the same setting, where the remarkable challenge of Ebola, the Ebola crisis, played out right in their community,” Price said. He praised survivors, saying, “We celebrate their victory over Ebola.” Price promised to highlight the U.S.Liberia partnership that helped defeat Ebola when he attends the upcoming G-20 health summit in Berlin.

national Court of Justice ordered Pakistan on Thursday not to execute an Indian naval officer convicted of espionage and terrorism, a case that has further strained ties between the Asian neighbors. The oicer, Kulbhushan Jadhav, was convicted in Pakistan and sentenced to death on April 10. The U.N. court ruled unanimously that Pakistan shouldn’t put Jadhav to death until India’s allegation that Pakistan breached his right to consular assistance is legally resolved. “Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Mr. Jadhav is not executed,” court President Ronny Abraham said at a hearing in the ornate Great Hall of Justice in The Hague. India welcomed the ruling. “I personally was very relieved and I’m sure every Indian is relieved to hear this order,” Indian Ministry of External Afairs spokesman Gopal Baglay said. Pakistan and India have a history of bitter relations, and Jadhav’s death sentence has further strained ties. Pakistan sought to play down the significance of the order, saying in a written statement that “the court’s decision today has not changed the status of Commander Jadhav’s case in any manner.” The foreign ministry statement said Jadhav “still has ample time to petition for clemency.” In court on Monday, India called Jadhav’s trial a “serious miscarriage of justice” because he wasn’t allowed to see Indian dip-

lomats or choose his own defense attorney. Indian lawyers argued that the restrictions amounted to a breach of the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. Pakistan argued that Jadhav’s rights weren’t breached and that the court didn’t need to issue an urgent order to stay his execution because it wasn’t imminent. An attorney for Pakistan added that a bilateral agreement allowed either country to decide on consular access in cases involving “political or secu-

rity” issues. Pakistani representative Mohammad Faisal showed judges on Monday a copy of an Indian passport he said Jadhav was carrying at the time of his detention. It bore the name Hussein Mubarak Patel, which was an “obvious indication of covert and illegal activity,” Faisal said. The case will take months or years to settle at the United Nations’ highest judicial organ, so judges issued Thursday’s order to ensure that Jadhav isn’t executed before the case ends.

Trump loyalists ‘tune out’ Washington furor President faces many critics, doubters — but not in conservative strongholds BY STEVE PEOPLES, BILL BARROW AND THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press

NEW YORK • President

Donald Trump’s loyal backers say they don’t know, don’t believe or don’t care about the explosive revelations that forced the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate potential collusion between Russia and the Republican’s campaign. From the quiet streets of New York’s working-class Staten Island to smalltown Denison, Iowa, and even smaller Rutledge, Ga., Trump may be as popular today as when he was elected. Voters are standing with a president who tweeted on Thursday that he is the target of “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!” The tumult that began last week with the firing of FBI Director James Comey has consumed Washington, roiling the White House and putting congressional Republicans on the defensive. Not so in Trump strongholds. “I tuned it out,” said Michele Velardi, 44, a mother of three sons, during a break from her job at a Staten Island hair salon. “I didn’t want to be depressed. I don’t want to feel that he’s not doing what he said, so I just choose to not listen.” Trump supporter Joseph Amodeo, 19, incorrectly praised the president for raising New York’s minimum wage, something enacted by Democrats in the Legislature. The college student had little understanding of the Trump administration’s deepening political struggles, but he ofered a stern message to Trump’s critics. “If you’re wishing for him to fail, you’re basically wishing for the pilot of the plane to crash,” Amodeo said. Such support isn’t necessarily representative of voters nationwide. A Quinnipiac University poll showed that 61 percent of those in the United States believe Trump is dishonest. Wall Street soured on the new administration — for a day at least — as the stock market on Wednesday had its worst day of the Trump presidency. And in Washington, some Democrats raised the prospect of impeachment amid reports that Trump asked Comey to end the investigation of Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Yet there was little evidence of significant cracks among Trump’s most passionate supporters. In Denison, Mark Feller, 60, said he would support Trump’s 2020 re-election without question, despite concern over what Feller described as chaos in the Oval Oice. Feller, a furniture dealer, doesn’t believe reports that the president asked Comey to back off his investigation before firing him. “If it were true, it would bother me. But I don’t think it’s true,” Feller said. In a rural area outside Des Moines, Iowa, John Strathman, 65, said he

little to do with the Russia scandal riling Washington. He wants to see Trump follow through on his conservative policy promises. “If he doesn’t govern like a conservative and looks more like a Democrat, then I’ll have to re-evaluate,” Strathman said. In Rutledge, a town

would give Trump a passing, albeit unimpressive, grade at the four-month mark in his presidency. He would like to see Trump become “more polished at the art of politics.” But the retired Defense Department employee’s decision on whether to continue supporting Trump has

of about 800 people in a county that gave Trump nearly 70 percent of the vote, Doug Foy suggested Trump shouldn’t presume the support is unshakable, even if Foy isn’t turning his back on the president yet. In particular, Foy, 53, who runs a tree removal service, would be concerned

if Trump had pressured Comey to drop the investigation. “I’m not a politician, so I don’t know just what they should do,” he said. “I don’t know if they should pursue impeachment or anything like that.” But his son, Robbie Foy, 27, said he hadn’t paid close attention to the news in recent days. He’s not backing of his initial reasons for supporting the president. Chief among them: his sustained disdain for Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton. “Trump’s not in it for the money. He’s got plenty of money,” the younger Foy said. Clinton, he added, “was in it for herself.” For many of the Trump faithful, even six months from the 2016 election, their opposition to Clinton remains fresh. Trump isn’t perfect, they say, but he’s better than the alternative would have been. The attitude was prevalent on the streets of Staten Island, where Trump beat Clinton last fall by nearly 17

percentage points. That’s even as Clinton defeated Trump in the state of New York by 22 points. State Assemblyman Ron Castorina, who represents Staten Island, refers to his community as “Trump Country.” He blamed Trump’s problems on what he calls irresponsible media coverage that’s “damaging the country as a whole.” Trump supporters, he says, aren’t giving up on their president. “Not only have I not heard of anyone turning their backs, I’ve seen people become more in solidarity with the president because they feel he’s getting a raw deal,” Castorina said. Indeed, inside Staten Island’s Cabinet Plant, store co-owner Paul Lopa, 41, said there was “nothing right now big enough” that could shake his support in Trump. “I think he’s going more and more into the right direction,” Lopa said.

FCC VOTES TO LOOK AT NET NEUTRALITY RULES Internet providers could get OK to speed up some content, slow others By TOdd SHiELdS Bloomberg

Regulators began dismantling net neutrality rules enacted under then-President Barack Obama with a vote on Thursday, opening the way to fewer restrictions on broadband providers and raising web companies’ fears they’ll face barriers to reaching customers. The Federal Communications Commission, in a 2-1 Republican-led vote, gave preliminary approval to Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to replace rules passed in 2015 by Democrats. Pai wants to remove strong legal authority that critics say over-regulates telephone and cable providers and that defenders say is needed to enforce fair treatment of web traic. The action begins months of consideration leading to a second, conclusive vote.

“Today, we propose to repeal utilitystyle regulation of the internet.” Federal Communication Commission Commissioner Ajit Pai

“Today, we propose to repeal utility-style regulation of the internet,” said Pai, a Republican appointed by President Donald Trump. Mignon Clyburn, the agency’s sole Democrat, ofered what she called a vociferous dissent, calling the proposal “a political

rush job.” The action “jeopardizes the ability of the open internet to function,” Clyburn said. “Will any of the open internet rules survive this rulemaking? I am doubtful,” Clyburn said. The embattled current net neutrality rules bar internet service providers such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon Communications from blocking or slowing some web traic in favor of other content — their own or a paying customer’s. The prospect of changing the rules produced a public outpouring, with the FCC registering more than 1.6 million emailed comments — many after TV comedian John Oliver urged viewers to act. Republicans say the Obama-era regulation discourages investment and See FCC • Page B5

MiTek plans new facility in Hazelwood Old Printpack site may be the location By JaCOB BarKEr St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Chesterfield-based MiTek Industries is planning an expansion in Hazelwood that city officials say could add 200 jobs over several years. MiTek, a supplier of engineered products, software and services for the construction industry, is eyeing the 30-acre site left vacant when packaging manufacturer Printpack shuttered its facility last year and laid of 115 employees. “What MiTek is proposing is to come in, demolish the building, put up a modern manufacturing building and move their expanded production in,” said David Cox, Hazelwood’s economic development director. The Hazelwood City Council took an initial vote Wednesday to approve Chapter 100 bond financing for the new MiTek facility. The incentive package would provide MiTek with 15 years of property tax abatement, Cox said. “It’s a brand new building,” he said. “They’re also going to have to do a lot of work on environmental remediation.” See MiTEK • Page B4

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. gained momentum in its fight against Amazon.com Inc., with its online sales growing at their fastest clip in at least five years. The e-commerce business saw gross merchandise volume — a measure of all the goods it sells online — soar 69 percent in the first quarter, Wal-Mart said Thursday. Total revenue climbed 1.4 percent to $117.5 billion. The results signal that Wal-Mart is getting a payof from an ambitious online expansion, which included last year’s $3.3 billion acquisition of Jet.com.

St. Peters reconsiders a proposed Holiday Inn Express By MarK SCHLiNKMaNN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. PETErS • Three months after aldermen narrowly rejected a four-story hotel opposed by many nearby residents, developers are trying again to win approval of the plan. The resubmitted proposal for an 81-room Holiday Inn Express and Suites along Interstate 70 is expected to be back before the

Board of Aldermen on Thursday. The vacant 3.5-acre site is on the southwest corner of Veterans Memorial Parkway and Richmond Center Boulevard in the city’s western end. Opponents continue to complain that the hotel would spur increased area traic although the city planning staf said a study indicated that current roads could easily accommodate hotel traic. Critics also worry that some hotel cus-

tomers could be involved in crimes jeopardizing children in the neighborhood and at a Fort Zumwalt School District early childhood center opening nearby next fall. “Hotels ... do tend to have crimes of opportunity,” Jason Foshe, one opposing resident, said at a planning and zoning commission hearing earlier this month. Opponents referred to a case related to a See HOTEL • Page B5

OSF St. Anthony’s Health Center in Alton wants to discontinue certain services at its St. Clare campus. St. Anthony’s is seeking to discontinue its 30-bed long-term care unit and 28-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit at its St. Clare campus, which is about a mile from its main campus in Alton. In an application with state health regulators, St. Anthony’s said use of those particular services had declined over the last few years. That leaves St. Clare with outpatient services and “stand-by emergency services,” according to an application with Illinois state health regulators. St. Anthony’s said it had not yet determined what it would do with the vacant space. The hospital plans to discontinue its five pediatric beds at the main campus. It said children who come to the hospital can be treated in standard hospital beds. The hospital said that by ending the services the hospital “will be better able to focus its resources” on its core functions. Keith Page, CEO of Anderson Hospital in nearby Maryville, said his hospital and others would be able to absorb more rehab patients. Anderson does not have pediatric or long-term care beds. In 2015, the hospital reported 291 admissions in the long-term care unit,243 admissions in the rehabilitation unit and 279 pediatric admissions. St. Anthony’s is owned by Peoria, Ill.-based OSF HealthCare. Samantha Liss • 314-340-8017 @samanthann on Twitter sliss@post-dispatch.com

Tarlton managing renovation project at Botanical Garden

M 1 • FrIDAy • 05.19.2017

Retail, oices planned for former Shriners site Development would be linked to Plaza Frontenac SPECIAL TO THE POST-DISPATCH

HANDOUT

Tarlton Corp. is serving as construction manager on the renovation and addition to the Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The museum, which opened in 1859, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The renovation project includes restoring the interior to align with the era of Henry Shaw, the Garden’s founder. An addition will house public restrooms, fire stairs and an elevator to improve accessibility. The main level of the original 7,000-square-foot building will be used for exhibits, while a portion of the renovated basement will be used as gallery space and other displays. Work includes the restoration of the building’s original tile floor and energy-eicient upgrades. The project is slated for completion in December.

FRONTENAC • A three-story retail and oice center, two restaurants and a fitness center are included in The Desco Group’s redevelopment proposal for the site of the former Shriners Hospital for Children. The planned development has one more review scheduled this month with the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission before going before the Board of Aldermen for final consideration. Tentatively called Frontenac Commons, the 9-acre development at 2001 South Lindbergh Boulevard would be linked to Plaza Frontenac to the north through shared access roads. A new one-way entrance from Lindbergh may be added, because of the proximity of St. Joseph Acad-

BUSINESS DIGEST Southwest to add weekly light to Cancun in November • Southwest Airlines will begin weekly round-trip lights from St. Louis to Cancun, Mexico, on Nov. 11. St. Louis Lambert International Airport oicials, in announcing the new service, said Lambert will be among only 15 airports Southwest will be using for international lights. “With the airline’s great connectivity now to 44 domestic markets, we’re optimistic this new light will do well for both local and connecting travelers,” airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said. Frontier Airlines already ofers daily lights from Lambert to Cancun. Southwest in November also will double its daily lights to Milwaukee and Fort Lauderdale — to two from one. Data point to tightening labor market • New applications for U.S. jobless beneits unexpectedly fell last week and the number of Americans on unemployment rolls tumbled to a 28½-year low, pointing to rapidly shrinking labor market slack. Initial claims for state unemployment beneits decreased 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 232,000 for the week ended May 13, declining for three consecutive weeks, the Labor Department said. That pushed claims close to levels last seen in 1973. Economists had forecast claims rising to 240,000 last week. Claims have now been below 300,000, a threshold associated with a healthy labor market, for 115 straight weeks. That is the longest such stretch since 1970, when the labor market was smaller. The labor market is close to full employment, with the unemployment rate at a 10-year low of 4.4 percent. The number of people still receiving

beneits after an initial week of aid dropped 22,000 to 1.90 million in the week ended May 6, the lowest level since November 1988. Mortgage rates slide again • Longterm U.S. mortgage rates inched lower this week. It was the ifth straight week that the benchmark 30-year rate hovered around the key threshold of 4 percent. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the average rate on 30-year ixed-rate home loans slipped to 4.02 percent from 4.05 percent last week. The rate stood at 3.58 percent a year ago and averaged 3.65 percent in 2016, the lowest level in records dating to 1971. The rate on 15-year mortgages eased to 3.27 percent from 3.29 percent last week. Chevrolet to exit India, South Africa, East Africa • General Motors Co. is pulling its Chevrolet brand out of India, South Africa and East Africa by the end of this year. The company will retain its assembly plant in India but will make vehicles only for export. It is selling a plant in South Africa to Isuzu Motors. GM says the changes will save the company $100 million per year. It will take a charge of $500 million in the second quarter to complete the actions. Earlier this spring GM left the European market, selling its Opel and Vauxhall brands to PSA Group. Express Scripts acquires Florida irm • Express Scripts Holding Co. said it had acquired a Florida irm focused on providing pharmacy beneits to those in workers’ compensation programs. The north St. Louis County-based company declined to provide terms of the deal. Express Scripts provides millions of

Americans with prescription drugs. Express Scripts said acquiring Tampa, Fla.-based myMatrixx was the way to create a “best in class” pharmacy service for workers’ compensation programs. Artemis Emslie, currently CEO of myMatrixx, will lead the combined workers’ compensation division. Gap reports jump in sales • Gap Inc. reported a surprise rise in quarterly same-store sales on Thursday, the latest indication that the apparel retailer is gaining from its turnaround plan. Gap’s sales have been buoyed by robust performance of Old Navy, with the pocket-friendly brand’s comparable sales rising 8 percent and handily beating Consensus Metrix’s estimate of a 2.2 percent rise. The company’s results are a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy apparel retail industry, which has been hit hard by the growing popularity of online shopping. Lowe’s to buy maintenance supplies retailer • Home improvement retailer Lowe’s Cos. Inc. said Thursday that it would buy Maintenance Supply Headquarters, a wholesale retailer of maintenance supplies, for $512 million, as it seeks to sell more to construction contractors. Houston-based Maintenance Supply Headquarters operates 13 distribution centers, most of them in the western, southeastern and south-central United States. Lowe’s is trying to better serve professional customers such as construction contractors amid ierce competition from larger rival Home Depot Inc. From staf and wire reports

Phone and retail lead U.S. stocks to rebound a day after big slump Quarterly reports spark the rally ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK • Solid gains

among phone companies and some retailers helped nudge U.S. stocks higher on Thursday, a day after the stock market had its biggest drop in eight months. Banks also recouped some of their losses. Energy and materials stocks fell. The rally came a day after the market’s worst drop since September as political tumult deepened in Washington, stoking worries among investors that President Donald Trump may have trouble enacting tax cuts and other business-friendly policies. “People may be wanting to put money to work in stocks, but the bonds they bought yesterday, they’re still going to keep those as a little bit of a hedge, just in case,” said JJ Kinahan, chief market strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 8.69 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,365.72. The Dow Jones industrial average added 56.09 points, or 0.3 percent, to 20,663.02. The Nasdaq composite index gained

43.89 points, or 0.7 percent, to 6,055.13. The Russell 2000 index of smaller stocks picked up 5.19 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,361.08. Bond prices slipped. The 10-year Treasury yield rose to 2.23 percent from 2.22 percent. Despite the day’s gains, the major stock indexes were still on course to end the week in the red. Stocks appeared headed for another down day early Thursday following selloffs in Asia and Europe. But better-than-expected quarterly results from WalMart Stores and retailers such as L Brands helped lift the market. Wal-Mart gained $2.42, or 3.2 percent, to $77.54, while L Brands rose $1.29, or 2.7 percent, to $49.69. Traders also welcomed data from the Labor Department showing that applications for unemployment benefits fell last week to the lowest level in nearly three months. Among other big movers: Incyte surged 6.9 percent on growing optimism over the biopharmaceutical company’s work developing cancer treatments.

Faulty airbag class-action settlement: $553 million

M 1 • FrIDAy • 05.19.2017

Despite rain, St. Peters mall is on schedule for the holidays

Four automakers agree to pay for deadly defects REUTERS

WASHINGTON • Four automakers agreed to a

$553 million settlement to address class-action economic loss claims covering owners of nearly 16 million recalled vehicles with potentially defective Takata airbag inflators, according to court documents filed on Thursday. Toyota Motor Corp.’s share of the settlement costs is $278.5 million, followed by BMW AG at $131 million, Mazda at $76 million and Subaru Corp. at $68 million. Lawsuits against Honda Motor Co., Ford Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. have not been settled, lawyers said. Takata Corp inflators, which can explode with excessive force and unleash metal shrapnel inside cars and trucks, are blamed for at least 16 deaths and more than 180 injuries worldwide. The safety defect has prompted recalls worldwide of about 100 million inflators by 19 major automakers, the largest automotive recall ever for a single safety issue. The four automakers said in a joint statement that they had agreed to settle “given the size, scope and severity of the Takata recall,” but did not admit fault or liability. The automakers said the settlements, if approved by a Florida judge, would be overseen by a court-appointed administrator. The settlement includes a new independent outreach program that seeks to dramatically increase recall remedy completion rates and will regularly contact owners. The settlements also provide compensation for economic losses resulting from the recall including paying reasonable out-of-pocket expenses; a potential residual distribution payment of up to $500; rental cars to the most atrisk owners while they wait for recall remedies; and a customer support program for repairs and adjustments, including an extended warranty. In January, Takata agreed to plead guilty to criminal wrongdoing and to pay $1 billion to resolve a federal investigation into its inflators. As part of the settlement, Takata agreed to establish two independently administered restitution funds: one for $850 million to compensate automakers for recalls, and a $125 million fund for individuals injured by its airbags who have not already reached a settlement. With the criminal settlement and penalties set in the United States, where most of the air bag-related fatalities and injuries have occurred, Takata is continuing its search for a buyer or financial backer, a process that has dragged on for a year. Automakers have recalled 46 million Takata air bag inflators in 29 million U.S. vehicles. By 2019, automakers will recall 64 million to 69 million U.S. inflators in 42 million vehicles, regulators said in December. The majority of inflators have not been fixed.

Fiat Chrysler shares drop on U.S. diesel emissions probe REUTERS

WASHINGTON • Shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles fell 1 percent in U.S. trading on Thursday on reports the Justice Department is preparing to file a civil suit against the automaker for selling 104,000 vehicles that emit excess diesel emissions. Reuters reported on Wednesday the Justice Department may file a suit under the Clean Air Act as early as this week if no agreement is reached with the Italian-American automaker. The Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board FCA in January accused of illegally using undisclosed software to allow excess diesel emissions in 104,000 U.S. 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks. That was the result of a probe that stemmed from regulators’ investigation of rival Volkswagen excess emissions. Shares of the company fell as much as 4 percent on the New York Stock Exchange before closing at $10.48, down 1 percent. The vehicles’ engines were manufactured by VM Motori SpA, a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler, and some component parts for the engines were supplied by Robert Bosch GmbH. Bosch faces about two dozen lawsuits from owners in connection with the Fiat Chrysler diesel vehicles. The Justice Department and the EPA have obtained internal emails and other documents written in Italian that look at engine development and emissions issues that raise significant questions, people briefed on the investigation told Reuters. The investigation has scrutinized VM Motori actions. FCA acquired a 50 percent stake in VM Motori in 2010 and the remainder in October 2013. A federal judge in California set a May 24 hearing on a series of lawsuits filed by owners of vehicles and some dealers against Fiat Chrylser and the Justice Department is expected to file its action by then if no agreement is reached. The company said Wednesday that it believed any litigation would be “counterproductive” to ongoing discussions with the EPA and California. It said it “will defend itself vigorously, particularly against any claims that the company deliberately installed defeat devices to cheat U.S. emissions tests.” The automaker said in a court filing late Wednesday that it was working closely with the EPA and California in a bid to win approval to sell 2017 diesels. The company said it hoped to install emissions software to address regulators’ concerns.

Shoppes at Mid Rivers site plan

BY DEBRA D. BASS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The largest shopping center to be built in St. Charles County since 2008 is entering its final stages of construction. The exterior of the $54 million project, The Shoppes at Mid Rivers in St. Peters, is nearly complete and interior build-out is scheduled to begin in early June. Knoebel Construction Inc. of Chesterfield is the general contractor on The

Shoppes at Mid Rivers. Construction began in February, and despite the heavy rain of March and April the project is said to be on schedule. Interior construction will include the build-out of all tenant stores, including confirmed tenants Academy Sports + Outdoor, Burlington, Ross Dress for Less, Marshalls, Home Goods, Ulta Beauty, Five Below and Famous Footwear. Aspen Dental will be situated on one of four outparcels on the site. The project employs an average of 75 construction workers a day at the St.

Peters site and Knoebel Construction is tasked with completing the mall by this fall, in time for the holiday shopping season. The 270,000-square-foot shopping center, developed by GBT Realty Corp. of Brentwood, Tenn., includes 14 buildings on 28 acres just north of Interstate 70 from Mid Rivers Mall, the only regional mall in St. Charles County.

Express Scripts, Mallinckrodt assailed Price hikes draw Chanos’ ire; beneits manager calls his claims ‘wildly inaccurate’ REUTERS

LAS VEGAS • Noted short-seller Jim

Chanos criticized on Thursday the alliance between two leading St. Louis County-based companies — drugmaker Mallinckrodt, which makes the drug Acthar, and Express Scripts, which serves as the drug’s exclusive distributor. Chanos, speaking at SkyBridge Capital’s SALT conference in Las Vegas, called the companies’ use of third parties “a really questionable practice” and dubbed the partnership a “murky alliance” as it makes drug prices excessively high. Mallinckrodt shares hit a session low of $39.60 after the comments, but closed at $40.87, down 3.5 percent. Express Scripts closed at $59.26, down 47 cents. The Kynikos Associates LP hedge fund manager also cited current regulatory pressure on Express Scripts’ pharmacy benefit manager practices and called for Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., to investigate. Brian Henry, spokesman for Express Scripts, said the firm found Chanos’ presentation “wildly inaccurate.” The Justice Department has been investigating Mallinckrodt along with

other drug companies such as Gilead, Valeant and Celgene for drug pricing practices. Earlier this year, Mallinckrodt agreed to pay $100 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that a company it acquired in 2014 engaged in anti-competitive behavior to preserve its monopoly on a $34,000-a-vial infantile spasm medicine. The allegations, brought by the Federal Trade Commission and attorneys general from five states, centered on Acthar, which once sold for $40 a vial but is now priced at $34,000 a vial, often paid for by the Medicare program. The drug brought in more than $1 billion in U.S. revenue in 2015 for Mallinckrodt, according to the legal complaint. Express Script’s Henry said his company’s patient assistance program for Mallinckrodt’s Acthar Gel “has no payer impact.” He said in a statement that the Acthar Gel patient assistance program managed by United BioSource Corp. means that underinsured or uninsured patients who meet clinical requirements for Acthar Gel receive the drug free of charge. “There is no payer impact because the cost of the drug is paid fully by the manufacturer,” he said. “This program is not like a manufacturer co-pay card

program. UBC does not bill payers. We do not circumvent payer prior authorization rules or reimbursement.” Henry also said the Acthar Gel PAP (patient assistance program) was a free goods program. A Mallinckrodt spokeswoman also said the investor’s comments were misleading. “Though Acthar is a significant contributor to Mallinckrodt’s overall profitability, it is substantially less than the asserted estimates,” Rhonda Sciarra, spokeswoman for Mallinckrodt, said in a statement. As for McCaskill launching an investigation based on Chanos’ allegations, Drew Pusateri, communications director for McCaskill, said in a statement: “Claire’s investigations have always been dictated by improving public policy, not by individuals trying to make money of the stock market. Her investigations will continue to focus on what can be done to bring down prescription drug prices and going after the crisis of opioid addiction in this country.” Mallinckrodt is based in Hazelwood; Express Scripts is headquartered in north St. Louis County.

Political lap threatens Super Hornets FROM WIRE AND STAFF REPORTS

ASSOCIATED PRESS

TORONTO • Canada’s government is

warning it could cancel a planned purchase of 18 St. Louis-made Super Hornet fighter jets from Boeing Co. because of U.S. Department of Commerce antidumping investigations against Canadian plane maker Bombardier. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the government was “reviewing current military procurement that relates to Boeing.” Boeing argued at a hearing in Washington on Thursday that duties should be imposed on Bombardier’s new larger CSeries passenger aircraft, insisting it receives Canadian government subsidies that help it internationally. Freeland said Boeing’s petition was “clearly aimed at blocking Bombardier’s new aircraft, the CSeries aircraft, from entering the U.S. market.” She said the government disagreedwith the Commerce Department’s decision to initiate anti-dumping and coun-

Boeing over rival Lockheed Martin. The Super Hornets are made at Boeing’s factories in north St. Louis County. The Associated Press, Reuters and the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

Once-dormant Hazelwood area is seeing new activity MITEK • FROM B1

MiTek, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, declined to comment on the project. In the metro area, MiTek recently built a new headquarters in Chesterfield and also operates a facility in St. Charles. The former Printpack factory at 310 James S. McDonnell Boulevard was purchased last year by a New York joint venture. The building is just north of the Hazelwood Logistics Center, which has

seen a flurry of construction after Kansas City-based NorthPoint Development acquired the site from developer Paul McKee. After several years with no activity, NorthPoint built two warehouses in the center and is building two more. Local real estate sources say that online retail giant Amazon is watching the warehouses going up in Hazelwood Logistics and could announce distribution facilities there soon. Amazon currently has no physical presence in Missouri, but it began collecting sales taxes from

Missouri customers this year, something it is required to do only when it has a physical presence in a state. In the logistics park, Hazelwood has also ofered a generous incentive package: 10 years of full property tax abatement and seven years of 50 percent property tax abatement.

The stock had been up 8.7 percent this year through Wednesday’s close. Growth at Wal-Mart’s brick-and-mortar stores was more measured, though it still outpaced estimates. U.S. same-store sales rose 1.4 percent, narrowly beating analysts’ expectations, fueled by a 1.5 percent increase in customer traic. That marked the 11th-consecutive period of positive sales in the company’s home market. The numbers ofer a stark contrast with those of rival Target Corp., which reported results Wednesday and has sufered negative same-store sales for four straight quarters. Wal-Mart earnings amounted to $1 a share in the period. Analysts had estimated 96 cents.

A sign at a Wal-Mart store in Bentonville, Ark., in 2015 advertises the company’s online grocery ordering and outside pickup services.

‘FEEL GOOD’ The company expects profit of $1 to $1.08 in the second quarter, compared with a projection of $1.07. U.S. same-store sales will grow 1.5 percent to 2 percent, WalMart said, higher than the 1.2 percent analysts had expected prior to the results. “We feel good about the momentum across the business,” Chief Financial Officer Brett Biggs said on a call with reporters. Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon has used the Jet acquisition as a catalyst for online growth. After buying that business in September, he put co-founder Marc Lore in charge of U.S. e-commerce. Wal-Mart followed up with some smaller deals, snapping up outdoor retailer Moosejaw and women’s apparel seller ModCloth earlier this year. “Customers are placing more repeat orders and spending more,” Lore said on the call. “The companies we have bought have helped to build our assortment and give us expertise in categories that are hard to crack.”

Lore said the company was seeing “nice growth” from its latest ofer of discounts on some web orders that are picked up in store. It now ofers curbside pickup of online-ordered groceries in 670 locations.

NEW CUSTOMERS Wal-Mart has found that ofering grocery ordering online brings in new customers, and those shoppers are typically young families “who don’t want to drag their kids around a Wal-Mart,” according to Jennifer Bartashus, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. About 42 percent of Wal-Mart’s regular monthly shoppers are members of Amazon’s Prime program, according to research firm InfoScout. Wal-Mart also has held talks to buy men’s clothing startup Bonobos Inc. for about $300 million, a person familiar with the matter said last month. Lore declined to comment on the deal Thursday. The acquisitions have helped burnish Wal-Mart’s online image, though the majority of e-commerce growth came from

He added that Holiday Inn was a family-oriented hotel brand and that the proposed facility would have security cameras and be run by an experienced operator. In February, four aldermen voted in fa-

hamstrings broadband companies. The rules were passed at Obama’s urging, and Democrats say they’re needed to prevent unfair treatment of web traffic by companies that control access to homes and smartphones. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., applauded the action. “We finally have an FCC chairman who recognizes that we live in a new era — an era of smartphones and laptops and other mobile devices — a chairman who believes that innovation, ingenuity, growth, and job creation aren’t dirty words to be stifled with unnecessary red tape,” McConnell said in an emailed statement. Democrats objected. “Today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai began the wrecking process to overturn net neutrality, demonstrating that he is on the wrong side of history, consumers and the public interest,” said Rep. Anna Eshoo, DCalif., a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee that oversees the FCC. “The FCC begins the process to remove rules that advance competition, innova-

tion, small businesses and entrepreneurs.” NCTA — the Internet and Television Association, a trade group with Comcast among its members — said in a statement that the vote “appropriately begins the agency’s eforts to restore a modern regulatory framework that will promote internet freedom.” USTelecom, a trade group for broadband providers including AT&T and Verizon, said in a news release that the vote moved FCC policy toward “a modern, constructive policy framework.” “This rulemaking wisely focuses this debate and puts a pro-consumer, pro-innovation and pro-investment policy trifecta within our reach,” Jonathan Spalter, USTelecom’s chief executive oicer, said in an emailed statement. Some consumer advocates objected. “This proposal should be chilling to everyone who values the internet as a platform for free speech, commerce, entrepreneurship and citizen engagement,” said Jonathan Schwantes, senior policy counsel for Consumers Union. The Internet Association, with members including Alphabet Inc.’s Google,

its longstanding Walmart.com site last quarter. Its digital growth rate was nearly triple that of Target. Amazon’s sales of socalled retail products climbed 16 percent last quarter. Wal-Mart’s online expansion hasn’t come cheap, though. Its expenses grew faster than sales in the first quarter, Biggs said in an interview. Wal-Mart has pledged to reverse that trend over the course of the year. Gross margins in the U.S. business were unchanged, missing the estimate of some analysts who had expected a slight uptick. “We’re still not where we want to be,” Biggs said.

FRESH FOOD Beyond the web, Wal-Mart is striving to improve its brick-and-mortar experience. Cleaner aisles, faster checkouts and fewer missing items have been the focus for Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores chief Greg Foran. The New Zealander also is beefing up the retailer’s fresh food, store-brand

and services businesses to provide a buffer against both Amazon and German discounter Aldi. Comparable-store sales of food were the highest in more than three years, WalMart said, as deflationary pressure subsided. Grocery retailers such as Wal-Mart and Kroger Co. have been grappling with a historic bout of food deflation, prompting price wars in categories such as meat and dairy. And next month they’ll have to cope with more competition as Germany’s Lidl expands to the East Coast. Foran, who joined Wal-Mart in 2014, has also replaced the clunky handheld bar-code scanners used by employees since 1984, opened training facilities for 200,000 workers, and freed store managers from the backroom to spend more time on the sales floor. “With all the hullabaloo online, it’s easy to forget that in-store execution still means the world to them,” Bartashus said. Wal-Mart is the No. 2 employer in the St. Louis area, behind BJC HealthCare.

vor of a special use permit needed for the hotel and two against. But the measure failed because it needed five “yes” votes for passage by the eight-member board. Two aldermen were absent when the vote was taken. As it did before the February vote, the city’s planning and zoning commission recommended earlier this month that aldermen approve the hotel. Last year, the same company withdrew an earlier plan for two hotels and a restau-

rant on the site after the planning commission opposed it. The scaled-back version reoriented the remaining hotel so room windows would not face nearby homes. The current plan also would keep drivers leaving the hotel lot from turning right onto a street leading into the nearby subdivision. Berms and landscaping were added to the plan since the February vote, a city oicial said.

Amazon.com, Facebook and Netflix, said it opposed Pai’s changes. Broadband providers “should not be able to use their position as gatekeepers to prioritize their own content over others,” Michael Beckerman, president of the group, said in an emailed statement. Pai said in his proposal last month that he was moving toward light regulation and away from a “massive and unprecedented shift in favor of government control of the internet.” Under Pai’s proposal the agency will consider lifting bans on blocking web traffic, and rules against building “fast lanes” that favor those willing to pay more for faster service. The agency also will consider whether to keep a ban against im-

pairing or degrading web traic, known as throttling. The rule changes are likely to pass the FCC, where Pai leads a 2-1 Republican majority. It probably will be challenged in federal court, just as the 2015 rules were. They were upheld last year by a threejudge panel. NCTA, with members including largest U.S. cable provider Comcast and No. 2 Charter Communications Inc., said in a blog post before the vote that “no matter what happens with this new FCC proceeding or whatever regulatory model comes next, we will continue to provide an open internet experience for our customers.”

U.S. oil production soars in glut OPEC wants less output, but American irms increase their drilling for black gold BY ERNEST SCHEYDER reuters

LEA COUNTY, N.M. • As oil-

field workers for Lilis Energy Inc. threaded together drill pipes one recent morning in the Permian Basin, a bulldozer cleared sagebrush to make way for the company’s fifth well since January. Lilis aims to expand production sevenfold this year in the United States’ most active oilfield. The whir of activity is all the more impressive after the small firm nearly collapsed in late 2015 — amid unrestrained production from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. As per-barrel prices plummeted, Lilis piled on debt and struggled to pay workers. Now — with prices higher after a November OPEC decision to cut output — Lilis can’t grow fast enough. Such resurrections are common these days in the Permian, which stretches across western Texas and eastern New Mexico. They tell the story of the U.S. shale resurgence and the quandary it poses for OPEC as it struggles to tame a global glut. Surging U.S. production has stalled OPEC’s efort to cut supply. Inventories in industrialized nations totaled 3.05 billion barrels in February — about 330 million barrels above the five-year average, according to the International Energy Agency. The Permian boom will be high on the agenda as OPEC oil ministers begin gathering in Vienna ahead of a May 25 policy meeting to decide whether to extend output cuts. In the long term, too much U.S. output could spur OPEC to open the spigots again — setting off another price war — but for now its member nations’ need for revenue makes that unlikely. On Monday, the world’s top two oil producers — OPEC heavyweight Saudi Arabia and Russia, a non-OPEC nation — said they had agreed in principle on the need to continue output cuts for an additional nine months, through March 2018. That would extend the initial agreement, which took efect in January and reduced production by 1.2 barrels per day (bpd) from OPEC nations and another 600,000 bpd from non-OPEC producers, including Russia. The pledge to extend cuts marked an evolution in the thinking of Saudi Arabia Oil Minister Khalid Al-Falih — in response to surging U.S. output. After OPEC’s decision in November, Al-Falih expressed confidence that no further supply curbs would be needed because of rising demand. Then in March, Al-Falih told a Houston energy conference that the “green shoots” in U.S. shale might be “growing too fast” — and warned there would be no “free rides” for U.S. producers benefiting from OPEC production cuts. But by last week, Al-Falih vowed OPEC would do “whatever it takes” to control oversupply. Unlike OPEC nations, U.S. firms are barred by antitrust laws from colluding to control output or prices, leaving market demand as the only check on production. “I’m really proud American production is offsetting those

now and the end of the decade will come from the Permian,” Papa said in an interview.

FREE RIDE ON OPEC CUTS Now it appears the free ride for U.S. shale producers will continue at least into next year. U.S. oil output has jumped to 9.31 million bpd this year, up 440,000 bpd from 2016, according to U.S. Energy Information Agency estimates. About a quarter of that production comes from the Permian, where broad-based growth comes from such small firms as Lilis, global majors including Exxon Mobil Corp. and large independents such as Parsley Energy Inc. OPEC’s two-year price war sank hundreds of companies and forced majors including Exxon and Chevron to retrench — but it also stirred their interest in shale. Exxon paid nearly $7 billion in February to double its acreage in the Permian. Earlier this month, about 20 miles south of Midland, Texas —

the center of the basin’s industry — a crew from ProPetro Holding Corp. was hydraulically fracturing, or fracking, an Exxon well. Silver silos held 18 million pounds of sand, which would be mixed with 22 million gallons of water and forced into the well, unlocking oil trapped in rock. “We’re really approaching the Permian as a major project,” Sara Ortwein, president of Exxon’s shale-focused subsidiary, XTO Energy, said in an interview. Across the Permian, the number of rigs this year has risen 30 percent and the number of fracking crews has jumped 40 percent, according to Primary Vision, which tracks oilfield service equipment usage. That won’t change soon, said Mark Papa, CEO of Centennial Resource Development Inc., which added to its Permian land holdings this month with a $350 million deal. “A disproportionate amount of U.S. production growth between

‘WE’RE OUT OF RIGS’ In a reversal from the thousands of layofs here in 2015, oil companies are hiring briskly. Fracking service provider Keane Group Inc., for instance, has plans to hire at least 240 workers this year. For the growth to continue, however, prices will have to rise for rigs and other services, executives and analysts have said. Paul Mosvold, president of drilling contractor Scandrill Inc., has more business than he can handle. “We’re out of rigs,” he said. “We have been since January.” But he won’t add more rigs unless producers pay more — maybe $25,000 per day, instead of the current $15,000 to $19,000. That may depend on per-barrel prices going up, an unlikely prospect amid expand-

ing supply. Oil drillers, meanwhile, continue to hunt for new cost-cutting technologies — after already halving the cost of extracting a barrel since 2014. Parsley is cutting labor costs with sensors on wells that transmit production data to its headquarters in Austin, Texas. “We’re constantly getting more eicient,” Mark Timmons, Parsley’s vice president of field operations. The Lilis revival started last year with debt-for-equity swaps and a merger with another troubled oil producer, giving Lilis access to Permian acreage. The company’s market value has risen to $210 million from about $3 million two years ago. At the company’s newest well site, Lilis CEO Mirman checked drilling progress on his iPhone and shrugged off any worries about OPEC’s next move. “We’re using every tool at our disposal to grow,” he said.

Aledmys Diaz’s ranking in UZR/150, the number of runs above or below average a fielder is, per 150 games.

For nearly two decades, it was impossible to think about pro football in St. Louis with thinking of Jim Hart. From 1966 through 1983, he played quarterback for the Cardinals — a staggering 199 games total. In the 97-year history of the Cardinals in the NFL, only placekicker Jim Bakken (234) and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (202) have played more games for the team. Hart was a four-time Pro Bowler, the NFC player of the year in 1974, and still holds virtually every passing record in franchise history. Retiring from the game following the 1984 season, he stayed in the St. Louis sports consciousness through his partnership with longtime teammate Dan Dierdorf in the Dierdorf & Hart’s restaurants and with his tenure as athletics director at his alma mater, Southern Illinois Carbondale. But he eventually sold his interest in the restaurant, left SIUC in 2000, and about 15 years ago he and wife Mary moved to Naples, Fla. Hart faded out of public

Wacha looks to regain ’15 form Nagging shoulder issue still a concern for Cardinals starter

Michael Wacha’s talent has never been a concern for the Cardinals. His work ethic and professionalism haven’t been in doubt either. His right shoulder scapula, however, is the biggest reason the Cardinals had to wonder how he would hold up this season. As Wacha returns to the mound Friday night for the first time since May 7, it’s important to appreciate just how crucial his health has been early in the season for a team that couldn’t afford to lose one of the starters in April. Although Lance Lynn was returning from Tommy John surgery, one could argue that Wacha entered camp with the most to

Softball team played last 8 years at home BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • There’s been nothing ordinary about Ehren Earleywine’s 11th season as Missouri’s softball coach. A program accustomed to piling up victories and cruising into postseason play on its home field has lost eight of 10 games heading into this weekend’s NCAA regional. And for the first time in nine years, the Tigers have to pack suitcases for the postseason. Every year from 2009-16, the Tigers hosted a four-team, double-elimination regional, and seven of those eight years survived to reach the super regional round. To do the same this year, Mizzou must not only capture a regional on the road in Eugene, Ore., but somehow outlast No. 3 overall seed Oregon on the Ducks’ home field. It’s a challenge Earleywine welcomes. “All these experiences make you a better coach and better player,” said Earleywine, whose Tigers (29-26) open regional play at 8 p.m. St. Louis time Friday against Wisconsin at Oregon’s Jane Sanders Stadium on ESPN. “We’ve hosted so many times and been the team with the target on your back.

Corey Perry’s shot deflected in off Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban’s stick 10:25 into overtime, and the Ducks snapped the Predators’ 10-game home playof winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night that evened the Western Conference finals at 2-2. John Gibson made 32 saves for Anaheim, which was the last team to beat the Predators in Nashville in the playofs last spring in Game 4 of their first-round series. Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie staked the Ducks to a 2-0 lead. But Subban scored with 6:27 left, and Filip Forsberg tied it with 34.5 seconds remaining in regulation with his fourth goal in four games. The Predators had matched the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings with their 10-game winning streak but missed matching Colorado’s 11-0 playof run in 1996-97. Perry ended the second overtime in this series with a goal originally credited to Thompson. Game 5 is Saturday night in Anaheim.

NOTEBOOK Penguins mum on goalie • Mike Sullivan isn’t any hurry to announce who will start in goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins in Friday’s critical Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against Ottawa. The defending Stanley Cup champions have relied heavily on Marc-Andre Fleury during their run to the NHL’s final four, but he faltered in Game 3, allowing four goals in just over 13 minutes before being pulled for Matt Murray in a 5-1 loss that gave the Senators a 2-1 lead in the series.

Mikko Rantanen and Joonas Kemppainen scored as Finland booked its place in Saturday’s semiinals. “It goes without saying we’re bitterly disappointed,” said Blashill, whose team looked to be improving with each game following its surprise 2-1 defeat to co-host Germany in the opener. “We believed that this team had the ability to win the tournament. They are a great group who cared, were selless and played some great hockey. Unfortunately, Finland was better than we were today and I congratulate them.” Canada edged Germany 2-1 to set up a semiinal showdown with Russia, which defeated the Czech Republic 3-0.

two great goalies,” Sullivan said Thursday. “These guys have both helped us win games. They’re terrific goalies, and we’re fortunate that we have these guys as part of our team.” Islanders hire Richardson • The New York Islanders have hired Luke Richardson as an assistant coach on Doug Weight’s staf. The team announced the hire Thursday and confirmed assistant Bob Corkum won’t be back. The 48-year-old Richardson returns to the NHL after being head coach of the AHL’s Binghamton Senators for four seasons and leading Canada to a Spengler Cup championship last year. The former defenseman was an assistant for the Ottawa Senators from 2009-2012. Weight and Richardson played together for parts of five seasons in Edmonton in the 1990s. Weight says Richardson brings a tireless work ethic and will have his hands on every aspect of the team, including systems, skill development and team culture. One-goal crazy • The NHL could be headed for a record-breaking number of one-goal games this postseason. After Thursday’s game, there have been 47 this year, including 26 settled in overtime. Five more and the 2007 record of 51 onegoal games will fall. “I think just throughout the league it’s so tight now,” Senators winger Clarke MacArthur told The Canadian Press. “Even the best team. You look at Pittsburgh — they’ve got All-Stars, but all the games are just (close).” Eleven of the Senators’ 15 playof games have been decided by a goal with eight resulting in wins (8-3-0).

Celtics facing must-win Game 2 NBA PLAYOFF SCHEDULE

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LeBron James did pretty much whatever he wanted to against the Celtics in the Cavaliers’ dominating 117-104 win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. He was eicient, scoring from the outside, rolling downhill and getting to the rim at will, passing to teammates and locking down Boston’s scorers when called upon. With home-court advantage gone, the Celtics face a virtual must-win Game 2 on Friday night. Boston must find a way to slow down James while not getting eaten up by a supporting cast, which other than Kevin Love’s big game didn’t produce at its usual high rate. Oh, and there’s extra motivation for Cleveland — now 9-0 in these playoffs — which could earn another long rest if it makes quick work of the Celtics. But here’s the rub for top-seeded Boston on Friday night: James said he wasn’t even playing at peak condition after Cleveland’s 10-day layof between rounds. “I felt OK last night,” James said Thursday. “I knew I wouldn’t feel that great after the game, and I don’t feel that great right now. ... But I should be much better (Friday).” Better than 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists? Good luck with that Boston. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said his optimism remains high, and that he was “really encouraged” by his team’s performance over the final 18 minutes of the game. It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play. Harden, James on All-NBA first team • Cleveland’s LeBron James has been named to the All-NBA first team for a recordtying 11th time, and Houston’s James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season.

Corey Perry just keeps finding the net in overtime this postseason, and his third goal in extra time helped the Ducks tie the Western Conference finals at 2-2. Perry’s shot deflected in off Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban’s stick 10:25 into overtime, and the Ducks snapped the Predators’ 10-game home playoff winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night. “I was just trying to create traffic or create a balance and create havoc in front,” Perry said. “And that’s what they say in overtime: You throw it on net, never know what’s going to happen.” John Gibson made 32 saves for Anaheim, which was the last team to beat the Predators in Nashville in the playofs last spring in Game 4 of their first-round series. The Predators had matched the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings with their 10-game winning streak but missed matching Colorado’s 11-0 playof run in 1996-97. Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie staked the Ducks to a 2-0 lead. But Subban scored with 6:27 left, and Filip Forsberg tied it with 34.5 seconds remaining in regulation with his fourth goal in four games. Perry ended the second overtime in the series with a goal originally credited to Nate Thompson. Perry stopped the puck as the Predators tried to clear and shot from the right boards at a severe angle. Subban stuck out his stick trying to poke-check the puck away only to re-direct it past goalie Pekka Rinne. “They caught a lucky bounce tonight on the redirect that ended up being a difference maker,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. The goal finally was credited to

Oh, and there’s extra motivation for Cleveland — now 9-0 in these playoffs — which could earn another long rest if it makes quick work of the Celtics. But here’s the rub for top-seeded Boston on Friday night: James said he wasn’t even playing at peak condition after Cleveland’s 10-day layof between rounds. “I felt OK last night,” James said Thursday. “I knew I wouldn’t feel that great after the game, and I don’t feel that great right now. ... But I should be much better (Friday).” Better than 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists? Good luck with that Boston. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said his optimism remains high, and that he was “really encouraged” by his team’s performance over the final 18 minutes of the game. It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play. Harden, James on All-NBA first team • Cleveland’s LeBron James has been named to the All-NBA first team for a recordtying 11th time, and Houston’s James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season.

Pletcher has the favorite Hahn, Barnes share lead but no Preakness success in Byron Nelson tourney

BALTIMORE • The Preakness has never

been Todd Pletcher’s race. Sure, it’s the middle jewel of the Triple Crown. But Pletcher has made a habit of skipping Baltimore in order to beat the pack to his home base of New York after the Kentucky Derby and await the Belmont. The Preakness’ position two weeks after the Derby is too soon for Pletcher. He prefers giving his horses more rest between starts. He’s 0 for 8 in the race, with his best finish being third with Impeachment in 2000. Of course, it’s become incumbent for the trainer of the Derby winner to bring the champ to Pimlico for a shot at making a Triple Crown bid. So Pletcher is here with Always Dreaming and he’s enjoying himself in his customarily restrained way. He’s wolfing down crab cakes at every opportunity and offering up local restaurant tips to anyone who asks. “He never was a real charismatic, funny person,” mentor and Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas said, “but he always handled himself well.” And his horses even better. Pletcher has won Eclipse Awards seven times as the nation’s leading trainer, including four in a row. He has won nine Breeders’ Cup races and four Triple Crown races, while finishing second or third 13 other times. “He was going to be good if he never met me,” said Lukas, the career leader with 14 Triple Crown victories, who employed Pletcher as an assistant for seven years until he went out on his own in 1995. Always Dreaming has surprised Pletcher in how quickly the dark bay colt bounced back from his 2¾-length victory in the Derby on May 6. He galloped 1½ miles on a warm, muggy Thursday and will jog on Friday because “that’s what we did the day before the Derby,” Pletcher said. “The tank seems full and he seems ea-

ger to go,” he said. Always Dreaming is the first Derby horse Pletcher has run in the Preakness since Super Saver in 2010. That colt earned Pletcher his first Derby victory before finishing eighth in the Preakness. Never one to ignore lessons learned, Pletcher is using his experience with Super Saver to guide Always Dreaming’s preparation. He gave Super Saver a breeze — or timed workout — between the first two Triple Crown races. He didn’t with Always Dreaming. “The two weeks is a quick turnaround, and sometimes you don’t know until they get in the stretch and you see what you have in reserve,” he said. “We’re just trying to keep it as simple as possible. We’re not overthinking it. We’re just letting the horse gallop and be happy.” Pletcher sent Always Dreaming to Pimlico three days after the Derby, wanting to give the colt known for some aggressive behavior in the mornings a chance to get used to his new surroundings well before race day. It was quiet around Pimlico last week, when Always Dreaming practiced standing in the starting gate and visiting the paddock area where he will be saddled indoors on Saturday. “I like the way he’s behaving around the barn,” Pletcher said. “He’s quiet in the stall. When he gets on the track, he’s strong but in a good way. We don’t want to see him get too excited and step on himself.” Always Dreaming will have nine rivals in the race, including four that ran in the Derby. If the colt is showing an eagerness to compete again, so is Pletcher. “I just want the race to get here,” he said. “He’s doing so good.” Despite overseeing a stable that runs in races nationwide, Pletcher is singleminded in his approach with each horse in his barn. So don’t even get him started on talk of winning the Triple Crown. “Let’s hope that Sunday morning we wake up and have to think about that,” he said.

Brooks Koepka (top center) watches as spectators and oicials help look for his ball in the rough on the ninth hole during the irst round of the Byron Nelson tournament. ASSOCIATED PRESS

IRVING, TEXAS • Brooks Koepka leaned in for a closer look at his ball buried in deep rough when a critter he couldn’t identify caused him to jump back with a bit of a startled look. His best guesses were a frog or rat, though he was too disoriented to be sure. It definitely wasn’t a birdie, because Koepka was on his way to finishing with two straight bogeys after sharing the lead late in his opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson on Thursday. A year after losing to Sergio Garcia in a playof at the TPC Four Seasons, Koepka settled for a 3-under 67 and trailed coleaders James Hahn and Ricky Barnes by three shots. “It jumped out and I didn’t know what was going on, freaked me out,” said Koepka, who needed help from a bevy of tournament volunteers and fans to find his ball while hitting two shots out of the thick grass and just missing a chip that would have saved par on the ninth hole, his last. “I was so in amazement of what just happened, whether it jumped out, scared me. I couldn’t see it because it ran underneath the grass again.” Matt Kuchar, Jhonattan Vegas, Jason Kokrak and Cameron Tringale shot 66, and top-ranked Dustin Johnson topped the group at 67, a stroke ahead of fourthranked Jason Day and Jordan Spieth, the No. 6 player competing in his hometown event. Masters and defending Nelson champion Garcia, ranked fifth, had three bogeys on the front nine and just one birdie in a 73 that left him tied for 93rd. The event is the last at TPC Four Seasons, ending the tournament’s 35-year run in Irving. The tournament will move to the new links-style Trinity Forest Golf Club south of downtown Dallas next year. Tringale was the only player with a lower score than Johnson in a blustery afternoon round, while Hahn and Barnes played in slightly calmer conditions in the morning. “It was blowing hard and it was gusty,” said Johnson, who has four top-10 finishes in seven previous Nelsons. “I thought it was very difficult to judge the wind and control the ball. Felt like there were a lot of times I hit really good shots that didn’t end up in good spots.” Using a mallet putter instead of his traditional blade, Spieth made a 10-footer

for his second straight birdie on his 17th hole, the par-4 eighth. Normally one of the best putters on tour, the Dallas native was frustrated with that part of his game after missing the cut at the Players Championship last week. “It’s nothing crazy new,” said Spieth, whose best Nelson finish remains his tie for 16th as a 16-year-old amateur in 2010. “It helps me line up a bit better and that’s kind of been my struggle is lining the putter up where I want to. I just haven’t quite dialed in the speed yet.” Day birdied the par-4 11th when he chipped to 12 feet off a cart path behind the green after a 326-yard drive on the 309-yard hole. On the next hole, he had to bend his second shot around tree from the rough and saved par. Day eagled the par-5 seventh and curled in a 28-footer for birdie on 18. “In this wind, I think everyone’s kind of scrambling,” said Day, whose first PGA Tour win came at the 2010 Nelson. “I was not going to drop it all the way back onto the other side of the road. It was just in long grass and I wouldn’t be able to flop it over. It was quite a simple shot. You just had to contact it correctly.” Hahn finished a bogey-free round with a 22-foot birdie putt on 18 to match his lowest round of the season. The two-time tour winner saved par with a 24-footer on 14. Hahn’s first four birdies were inside 10 feet. Barnes, who has made four straight cuts after missing 10 of his previous 13, started a run of three straight birdies with a chipin on his 15th hole, the par-4 sixth. He had two bogeys. “I’m having signs of brilliancy,” said Barnes, still looking for his first win in his 255th PGA Tour start. “I just need to put it all together.” Koepka birdied his first two holes and was 5 under through 13 holes before stumbling late. On No. 8, his 17th hole, Koepka had to lift a folding lawn chair to uncover his ball behind the green. He missed the par putt. After missing on a birdie chance for the win in 2016, Koepka went in the water on 18, the first playof hole, to open the door for Garcia to become the only two-time winner since Lord Byron’s event moved to the Four Seasons. “I didn’t play very good today,” Koepka said. “Even last year, I didn’t play very good around this place and just managed to get a decent score. Three under isn’t very good around here. I’ll take it for how I played.”

GOLF ROUNDUP Tie for lead in Champions major Scott McCarron eagled the par-5 18th hole for a 7-under 65 and a share of the irst-round lead Thursday in the Regions Tradition, the irst of the PGA Tour Champions’ ive majors. Lee Janzen, Jef Sluman and Miguel Angel Jimenez joined McCarron atop the leaderboard at Greystone in Birmingham, Ala. Sluman and Jimenez closed with birdies, and Janzen had a run of six birdies and a bogey from holes 10-17. McCarron was left with a short eagle putt after his approach bounced of the grandstand on No. 18. Kenny Perry, the 2014 winner, was a stroke back along with David Frost, Fred Funk, Scott Parel, Marco Dawson and Tommy Armour III. Defending champion Bernhard Langer

opened with a 69. John Daly, coming of a victory in the Insperity Invitational, shot a 71. Thompson leads LPGA event • Lexi Thompson had six birdies in a seven-hole stretch and inished with a 6-under 65 to take the irst-round lead in the Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Va. Thompson had a one-stroke lead over U.S. Solheim Cup teammates Gerina Piller and Brittany Lincicome and young American Angel Yin. Top-ranked Lydia Ko was two strokes back at 67 along with Sarah Jane Smith and Giulia Molinaro. Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 72. Associated Press

SERIES PREVIEW: CARDINALS VS. GIANTS SCOUTING REPORT • The Cardinals welcome in the San Francisco Giants this weekend for a three-game series. Coming of a two-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox, the Cardinals have fallen out of irst place and trail the Milwaukee Brewers by one game. Through the team’s irst six weeks, irst baseman Matt Carpenter had made the adjustment to be much more patient at the plate. Entering Friday, Carpenter’s walk rate sits at 20.1 percent — he essentially draws a walk once every ive plate appearances. That mark also ranks irst in the major leagues, even ahead of sluggers Bryce Harper, Miguel Sano and Freddie Freeman. Being patient comes with one drawback though: Carpenter’s strikeout rate of 23.4 percent is at a career high.

PROBABLE PITCHERS: Friday, 7:15 p.m. RH Michael Wacha (2-1, 3.19 ERA) vs. LH Matt Moore (2-4, 5.67) Saturday, 6:15 p.m. RH Carlos Martinez (3-3, 3.88) vs. RH Jef Samardzija (1-5, 5.26) Sunday, 1:15 p.m. RH Adam Wainwright (3-3, 5.31) vs. RH Matt Cain (3-1, 4.04)

With ace Madison Bumgarner on the disabled list after a dirt bike accident, the Giants were in a free fall to start the season, but have rebounded over the past week. The Giants had a ive-game winning streak halted against the Dodgers on Wednesday and have won six of their last eight. Buster Posey hasn’t struggled though, and the catcher is on pace to set marks better than what he posted in his 2012 MVP campaign. Posey is currently slashing .378/.452/.588, all of which would be the best marks of his seven-plus year career. He’s also second on the team in home runs and runs scored with seven and 19, respectively. Brandon Belt leads the Giants in both categories. Max Gelman

Wacha learning the value of rest Cardinals starter taking an extra day of between starts

AVERAGES Batting Sierra Gyorko Pham Adams Wong Molina Diaz Garcia Carpenter Grichuk Fowler Fryer Team

BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

Outside of the Cardinals’ recent rearrangement of the rotation to buy him more than a week of between starts, Michael Wacha has made a subtle shift to his schedule from years past that he believes has helped him throw better and stronger so far. It involves the addition of not throwing at all. Wacha, who is set to start Friday against San Francisco, has shifted the traditional bullpen session back a day and now “I’m just not picking up a ball the second day at all,” he said. “I might play light catch,” he added. Most pitchers will have their start, take a day of, and then throw a bullpen session on the second day afterward. That allows for two days of rest before the next start on the five-day schedule. Teammate Mike Leake also throws his bullpen on the third day, and there will be times during the regular season that he’ll skip or reduce the bullpen sessions. Wacha has had two of the past three seasons interrupted by shoulder trouble, and his second-half performance has wilted each year either because of an injury or fatigue or both. When auditing what changes he could make between his starts — weightlifting, conditioning, treatment, nutrition, the gamut — he also mentioned that he was sore during bullpens. “I would grind through the bullpen,” Wacha said. “I figured out that I could get that one more day of rest, throw a bullpen on day three and let my arm try to get a whole day of not even throwing the ball at all, really. I just think now I’m getting more out of the bullpens and still giving my arm that extra day.” Wacha said he has not had to alter the workout room and weight training he does during the season, though he and the team are constantly monitoring and fine-tuning his schedule. That was the idea behind buying him a 12-day breather. He’s thrown at least six innings in all six of his starts and posted a 3.19 ERA. Since his start on May 7, he’s thrown two bullpens.

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES An emphasis the Cardinals have brought out of spring training and into their regular-season routine has been an improved defense of opponents’ running games. Last year, the Cardinals took a nosedive when it came to restricting free access to bases, and catcher Yadier Molina had a career-worst 21 percent rate of throwing out runners. The Cardinals traced those troubles back to the pitchers, and their slow deliveries. This year, the Cardinals have periodically taken the field to work on varying the pace of deliveries and throwing over. Manager Mike Matheny said he’ll even track how often a pitcher has thrown over in games — and may call for one just so word gets out that the pitcher can.

Cardinals center ielder Dexter Fowler is unable to catch a triple by the Red Sox’s Xander Bogaerts in the irst inning on Wednesday at Busch Stadium.

“I can sit there and watch and know, hey, he hasn’t thrown in a little while,” Matheny said. “You see a lot of guys on the first pitch there. Last year, we were throwing things into the stands and part of that is not having them consistently throwing over. A lot of times, doing that they might be more comfortable being able to make that throw and make it accurately so that when the heat gets turned on they feel like they have a better chance of success.” So far, so good. Molina has thrown out 32 percent of would-be thieves, and several of the starters, according to MLB.com, are shortening the leads opponents get. StatCast data shows that runners are five inches closer to first against Wainwright this season than last, a half of foot closer to first against Carlos Martinez, and almost a foot closer to first against Leake. “I think it’s the improved moves,” Matheny said.

TUIVAILALA’S LEARNING CURVE Although dinged with the extra-innings loss late Wednesday night, Sam Tuivailala strengthened his case to remain a factor for the Cardinals in the bullpen this season. He’s done it by taking a little of. After several years of tinkering with a cutter at the urging of Matheny, Tuivailala has gone back to a hard, biting curveball — and back and back again. Already this season, Tuivailala has thrown the curve three times as often as either of his previous two seasons. Almost a third of his pitches this season have been a curve that averages 80.0

mph, according to Pitch F/x data. “The curveball got me back into counts,” Tuivailala said. “It’s helping out my fastball late in counts as well.” Tuivailala, 24, has already shuttled back and forth between Class AAA this season, and another move could be possible in the coming days. The Cardinals are considering a drop to 12 pitchers with the planned return of position players Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) and Jhonny Peralta (upper respiratory infection) in the coming days. Tuivailala, one of the few relievers who still has options remaining, could be demoted without any transactional fuss. With the addition of two strong innings Wednesday, Tuivailala has shown reasons to stay or be the first back. He’s struck out five, walked five, and collected a 2.89 ERA in 91/3 innings. The curve he’s leaned on he also left up for the decisive hit in the Cardinals’ 5-4 loss to Boston in the 13th inning. The prelude to that loss has made his case for the majors. “I think so,” Matheny said. “He’s been more consistent. We’ve seen him multiple innings now a couple of times and both times he’s done a great job, pounding the zone, trying to work ahead. Still things he can improve. His curveball is much improved.”

COMMISH PICKS MATHENY Within the first few years of his tenure as manager, Mike Matheny found himself standing before the commissioner and other executives as an advocate for rule change. Now, he’ll be on the other side of

the table. Commissioner Rob Manfred Jr. announced Wednesday the reorganization of his competition committee, and Matheny is one of four active managers to serve on the 16-man panel. The other three are his good friend Joe Girardi (New York Yankees), Dave Roberts (Los Angeles Dodgers), and the elder statesman of the group, Baltimore’s Buck Showalter. The committee will be assigned with “studying all aspects of the game and advising the Commissioner and (owners) on on-field matters,” according to Major League Baseball. This group will be essential to the commissioner’s stated goal of improving pace of play, though almost any issue in baseball could come before the group. For the first time the committee has been expanded to include former players and even a broadcaster, such as Hall of Famers Roberto Alomar and John Smoltz, the latter of whom also works for MLB Network.

PISCOTTY PRECAUTION After starting the game and getting an at-bat, Piscotty (hamstring) left Thursday night’s Class AA game earlier than scheduled as a precaution. He’s expected to continue his rehab assignment Friday with the Springfield Cardinals.

FOWLER TIDBITS The Cardinals acknowledged that center fielder Dexter Fowler (shoulder) is limited on his throws, and that there are times that they’d prefer Randal Grichuk or another outfielder take the throw if possible as their center fielder regains strength. In the first inning Wednesday, rookie Magneuris Sierra handled the throw in on a triple to the wall as Fowler peeled of. Later in the game, Fowler attempted a throw on a similar play. … In Tuesday’s game, Mookie Betts hit the 10th leadof home run of his young career to already tie for Boston’s career record. On Wednesday, Fowler hit the 22nd of his career. That is the eighth-most for an active player. … The Cardinals’ next interleague game is June 16 in Baltimore.

Diaz is making big improvements at shortstop CARDINALS • FROM C1

coach and now a special instructor in the minors, Oliver Marmol has worked with infielders and continued to push Diaz, sometimes to his left and always closer to right. Oquendo saw Diaz in person for the first time since spring in Miami and was treated to what arguably was the infielder’s finest series since coming to the majors. Strides are happening. “I think the one thing that we are seeing is that he’s playing with a lot more confidence,” said Marmol, a former infielder who is in his first season in the majors after serving as a manager in the minors for the Cardinals. “That speaks volumes to go out there and feel like you’re going to make every play. That’s what we want. That helps a ton. That’s what we’re seeing from him.” Defense remains a point of consternation for the Cardinals. Three errors Tuesday led to a loss, and only Oakland has committed more errors this season than the Cardinals’ 34. Questions about the defense have become so prevalent that second baseman Kolten Wong recently insisted that, “People need to drop that (baloney). Honestly, man.” Diaz suggested he’ll know he’s “doing a good job” the mo-

ment he stops fielding questions about his defense. There is one caveat: recent improvement may make Diaz’s defense less questionable — and more worthy of being talked about. At the same point last year, his rookie season, Diaz had already committed his 10th error of 16 total. This year, he has roughly the same amount of total chances, 131 to last year’s 128, and has committed four errors. Nine shortstops in the majors have more innings played and fewer errors than the Cardinals’ starter. Seven of them have three. Advanced metrics are also warming to Diaz, who has been a plus-2 Defense Runs Saved fielder in May, according to Baseball Info Solutions. His batting average sculing and his on-base percentage submerged below .300, Diaz recently confided in a coach how maybe, just maybe this slump is a good thing for him. “It made me worry and focus about the other things, like playing better defense, like running the bases better,” Diaz said. “It just made me a better player. For sure, you have to do something for the team. When you’re not hitting, you’ve got to do something else. You have to play better defense. You have to run the bases. You have to be that complete player.” The uptick in metrics for Diaz’s defense corresponds to his

adoption of a daily routine geared toward reaction, recognition, and first step. For the past three weeks, Diaz has spent about 15 to 20 minutes every game day with Marmol and a routine Marmol has crafted. They begin with some drills inside and then spend about the same amount of time, 7 to 10 minutes, on the field. The indoor work includes catching caroms off the wall and something new — stroboscopic eyewear. NBA stars like Steph Curry and Kawhi Leonard use similar strobe glasses to help them improve their reactions and sharpen perception. A Duke University study in 2013 found strobe glasses, which flip from transparent to dark,improved hockey players’ anticipation of a moving object, like a puck. Or, say, a grounder. Marmol preferred to describe some of the drills as only “of the wall and not traditional at all.” They could be heightening very traditional skills that Oquendo, Ozzie Smith, and others stressed with Diaz all through spring training. “Quickness,” the shortstop said. “Be more quick, more quick with that first step, and that allows you to get to the ball quicker and to be in position quicker. It’s all the first step.” The evidence is just starting

to accumulate. In the past three weeks, he’s improved from a minus-7 Defensive Runs Saved to minus-5, and by another advanced metric he rates along with Colorado’s Trevor Story and just ahead of Houston’s Carlos Correa when it comes to range. He is firmly in the average. A year ago, Diaz had a minus-11.4 Ultimate Zone Rating over 150 games (UZR/150), and this season he’s more than halved that to minus-4.0. Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts is a minus-1.2, Cubs shortstop Addison Russell a plus-3.6. His coaches have told him about other peers, like Alcides Escobar and Brandon Crawford, each whom had multiple seasons of at least 18 errors before winning Gold Gloves. Edgar Renteria averaged 24 errors in the four seasons before he won his first Gold Glove with the Cardinals in 2002. Their point is not that gold awaits Diaz at the end of his routine, but that improvement does, from work. Draw confidence from that. “A routine that gives you confidence and then allows you to execute in the game, that’s what you want to see,” Marmol said. “Whenever you see those plays they do build on themselves, not only for him as an individual but as a team, too, right? Kolten can see a play (Diaz) made and that gives him confidence: ‘All right, I want

to do that.’ It’s building. We’re headed in the right direction.” Said manager Mike Matheny, “Aggressiveness comes from having some success. It’s probably about the right timing for it to happen.” For much of spring, Diaz worked on getting comfortable being a step or few closer to second. Oquendo, Marmol, and he reasoned that he was deft going to his right (backhand), but needed to extend his range closer to the base. It took time for him to get used to that new angle, and it took time for him to trust it. In Miami, Oquendo had a great seat to see it happen. Diaz did move to his left, as suggested. And he twice went to his backhand to steal an infield hit. Each time he fielded the ball behind third baseman Jedd Gyorko, and when he threw out Adeiny Hechevarria he did so by racing over from closer to second base. Every step he makes in a successful play, coaches say, puts him closer to the next one. Asked about that, Diaz didn’t just describe hearing what Oquendo had to say, he sounded like what Oquendo would say. “You can’t be afraid to make a play,” Diaz said. “You have to look to make a play.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

NOTEBOOK Pillar receives two-game suspension for using slur Toronto Blue Jays center ielder Kevin Pillar was suspended two games Thursday for yelling an antigay slur at a Braves pitcher. The Blue Jays suspended Pillar without pay shortly after he apologized in a statement, saying he was “completely and utterly embarrassed” by the word he directed at Jason Motte. Pillar was angry at Motte for allegedly quick-pitching him to get a strikeout that ended the seventh inning in Atlanta’s 8-4 victory Wednesday night. Games in Europe by 2019 • Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred remains hopeful the sport can play regular-season games in Europe for the irst time in 2019. Major League Baseball had hoped to have European games in 2018, possibly between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox at London’s Olympic Stadium, but decided there was not enough time to get plans in place. “It’s something we’d really like to do in 2019,” Manfred said Thursday following a quarterly owners’ meeting. “I can’t tell you we are going to do it. I can’t give you a percentage, but we do think it’s time, whether it’s 2019 or shortly thereafter, that we play in Europe.” MLB re-working Japan deal • Major League Baseball would like to make changes in the player acquisition agreement with its Japanese counterparts. MLB and Nippon Professional Baseball agreed to the posting system in December 1998 in which Japanese clubs can make available players over which they have control. MLB teams bid, and the player’s Japanese club receives the posting fee only if he reaches agreement with an MLB club. “We certainly have begun conversations about changes to the posting system,” Manfred said. Manfred said the hoped-for revisions have been sparked by changes to MLB’s collective bargaining agreement and a desire to have “more of a uniform system that applies to professional players in particular that are moving to Major League Baseball.” Games coming to Facebook • Baseball fans can like their team’s games with a click starting Friday. Major League Baseball announced Facebook will carry a live game nationally each Friday starting with Colorado at Cincinnati this week. The Facebook package of 20 games will use the broadcast feed of one of the involved teams. Manfred calls it “really important for us in terms of experimenting with a new partner in this area.” The Twitter feed of a game each Friday, which started April 7, will be moved to Tuesdays. Koehler goes on DL • Miami Marlins righthander Tom Koehler’s demotion to the minors has been voided, and he has instead been placed on the 10-day disabled list with bursitis in his right shoulder. The move was made Thursday before the Marlins began a fourgame series against the Dodgers, and was retroactive to Wednesday. Koehler was optioned Tuesday to Triple-A New Orleans after he gave up eight runs in three innings in a loss to Houston. He won 30 games for Miami in 2014-16 but is 1-2 this year with an ERA of 7.04, highest among all NL starters. Bids for Marlins are even • The two groups bidding to buy the Miami Marlins from Jefrey Loria are relatively even in their price ofers, according Manfred. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush leads one group, which includes former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, who would head the team’s baseball operations. The other group is led by businessman Tagg Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and includes Hall of Famer Tom Glavine. “There are two bidders, at least, for the franchise. The bidders are in relatively the same place in terms of price, maybe minuscule diferences, and they are in fact in the price range that Mr. Loria was looking for,” Manfred said. Cubs honor Robinson • The Chicago Cubs have raised a new lag in honor of Jackie Robinson on the 70th anniversary of his irst game at Wrigley Field. His granddaughter Meta Robinson helped raise a white lag with “Robinson 42” in blue letters on the right-ield foul pole hours before Thursday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. Robinson’s irst appearance at Wrigley Field came on May 18, 1947, about a month after he broke the majors’ color barrier. He went 0 for 4 with a walk and two strikeouts for the Brooklyn Dodgers before 46,572, the largest paid regular-season crowd ever at the ballpark. Associated Press

Braves lose hot-hitting Freeman hey’re in search of irst baseman after HR leader breaks wrist ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA • The Braves are

looking for help at first base after losing Freddie Freeman for about 10 weeks due to a broken left wrist. President of baseball operations John Hart says he knows no player can replace the production lost by the injury to Freeman, who shared the major league lead with 14 homers and was hitting .341. Freeman was hurt when hit by a pitch from Toronto’s Aaron Loup during the fifth inning of an 8-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Hart said losing Freeman is “devastating news for the ballclub.” Braves general manager John Coppolella said the team doesn’t have a first baseman in the minor leagues ready to be called up. The team was considering free agents, including James Loney, who hit .265 with nine homers in 100 games for the Mets last year and was released from a minor league contract with Detroit this month. Coppolella said re-signing Ryan Howard, who was released from the Braves’ Triple-A Gwinnett team on May 8, is not an option. Jace Peterson, a utility player who has spent most of his time at the middle infield spots, started at first base in Thursday night’s game against the Blue Jays. “We couldn’t find anybody that could do what Freddie does,” Coppolella said. “He was arguably the best player in the whole league.” Hart said Freeman’s injury was especially tough “with the historic year he was putting together.” Freeman ranks among the NL’s top three in homers, runs, extra-base hits, slugging percentage and on-base percentage. “The more disappointing fact is we had started playing good baseball as a team,” Freeman said. “I never play this game for myself. I just come in every day to try to help this team win and get back to the playofs because it has been four years. ... I could care less about personal statistics at this point.” Freeman, wearing a green cast, said he knows Loup did not intend to hit him with the pitch.

Atlanta’s Freddie Freeman reacts after being hit by a pitch that resulted in a broken left wrist.

“He was just trying to get me out,” Freeman said. “The best possible way to get me out is to throw inside. I’d be the first one to tell you that. He was just trying to do his job, and one got away.” Freeman said he feared a break when first examined by assistant athletic trainer Jim Lovell on the field. Lovell “told me to squeeze his hand and obviously I couldn’t do it,” Freeman said. Surgery will be necessary.

With Peterson at first, Rio Ruiz was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to start at third base against the Blue Jays on Thursday night. “I’m not going out there to do what Freddie Freeman does,” Peterson said. “I don’t think that’s possible.” Ruiz played in five games with Atlanta last season. The 22-year-old was hitting .262 with four homers and 16 RBIs in 37 games with Gwinnett.

Atlanta placed third baseman Adonis Garcia on the disabled list with Achilles tendinitis before Wednesday’s game. The Braves had hoped the ofseason addition of Sean Rodriguez would have been the fill-in for Freeman this season. However, Rodriguez may miss the entire season with a shoulder injury sustained when a vehicle he was driving was rammed by a stolen police car in Miami on Jan. 28.

Cardinals hope extra rest will help Wacha ORTIZ • FROM C1

prove among the candidates for spots in the starting rotation. Wacha was not guaranteed a spot in the rotation heading into camp because the No. 1 pitching prospect in baseball, Alex Reyes, was expected to compete for a spot after proving he could dominate major league batters with his impressive 100-mph fastball late last season. Reyes never threw a pitch in spring training, however. He arrived in camp with an ulnar collateral ligament tear that ultimately required Tommy John surgery to repair, chipping away critical major-league quality starting pitching depth at Class AAA at a time when the studs headed for Class AA Springfield still needed several more months of development. With Reyes done for the year, Wacha’s spot in the rotation was essentially assured as long as he remained healthy in camp. He showed no ill will after the Cardinals beat him in arbitration in mid February, when a panel set his salary this season at $2.8 million instead of the $3.2 million his agents filed for him. If not for the stress reaction that has plagued Wacha’s right scapula at the end of the last two seasons, there’s no telling if the Cardinals would have even bothered taking him to arbitration. Most fans would gladly “settle” for his $2.8 million, oneyear contract, but it’s important to consider that the Cardinals had just given young ace Carlos Martinez a five-year, $51 million extension in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Wacha and Martinez are the same age. The two 25-year-old righthanders were born less than three months apart in 1991, Wacha on July 1 and Martinez on Sept. 21. They made their major-league debuts the same month in 2013 — Martinez on May 3 and Wacha on May 30 — and helped propel the Cardinals to the National League pennant that year. While Martinez pitched mainly in relief as a rookie, Wa-

cha made most of his appearances in 2013 out of the rotation with nine starts and six relief appearances before truly making his mark in the rotation as the 2013 National League Championship Series MVP. They both even earned their first and only All-Star berths in 2015. After starting 2015 with a 10-3 record and 2.93 ERA, though, Wacha was 7-4 with a 4.01 ERA after the All-Star break. Wacha is 16-12 since the 2015 All-Star break. He was 7-7 with a career-worst 5.09 ERA last year, going 5-7 with a 4.36 ERA

in 18 starts before the All-Star break and 2-0 with a 7.44 ERA after the break. Martinez also was 10-3 before the 2015 All-Star break with a 2.52 ERA before going 4-4 with a 3.73 ERA after that break. Martinez is 23-16 since the 2015 All-Star break, leading the team in victories and ERA last season while going 16-9 with a 3.04 ERA to earn his big payday this February. Martinez, who earned his first Opening Day nod this season, is adamant that a healthy Wacha can lead this rotation.

“He’s one of the leaders here,” Martinez said of Wacha. “If you give him a chance, he’ll step up and help lead this rotation to the playofs again.” As was mentioned often this spring, Wacha spent most of the ofseason strengthening his right shoulder. Wacha is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA over six starts, going at least six innings in each start while limiting opponents to three earned runs or fewer in all but one of his starts this season. The Cardinals took advantage of their scheduled days off on Monday and Thursday to skip Wacha for a turn in the rotation and give him 12 days between starts. “Obviously skipping (Wacha) here is a proactive approach to keep him healthy and strong and on the field,” manager Mike Matheny said. “If we can keep him healthy and take opportunities like this with the of days to give him that rest, he can be that impact style pitcher. “We’ve seen what that looks like. Look at ‘13 and what he did in the postseason. He’s a topof-the-rotation talent. It’s just a matter of if we can keep him in that spot.” Wacha and the starters held up physically at a time when the Cardinals may not have been able to absorb a loss in the rotation because the starters most likely to be ready for a promotion were dealing with injuries. “When you think about our starting depth between April 1 and today, it was pretty thin,” general manager John Mozeliak said. “But now with (Luke) Weaver throwing, Marco Gonzalez throwing. Getting (John) Gant back all of a sudden I think you feel more confident in innings eaters from our Triple A team.” The Cardinals hope this 12day break helps to keep Wacha strong and ready to regain the form he showcased in the 2013 NLCS and in the first half of his All-Star 2015 season.

GIRLS SOCCER • CLASS 3 DISTRICT 3 CHAMPIONSHIP

BOOT IT LIKE MEGAN McClure’s 51-yard rocket leads Webster Groves past Summit in district showdown BY STEVE OVERBEY STLhighschoolsports.com

FENTON • Webster Groves soccer coach Thom Champion finally gave in. All season long, Statesmen senior goalkeeper Megan McClure had been lobbying to take free kicks, especially inside her own zone or near the midfield area. So Champion decided it was time to give his strong-footed a netminder a chance. During a training session on Tuesday, he allowed McClure to test her long-range skills. McClure’s bombs grew rave reviews in practice and he promised her a chance in an actual match — under the right circumstances. “She was so excited, so happy, it was all she talked about,” Webster Groves sophomore forward Emma Atherton said. McClure, given a rare chance to be an ofensive weapon, came through with flying colors on Thursday, drilling in a shot from 51 yards out of a free kick to give the Statesmen a 1-0 win over Summit in a power-packed Class 3 District 3 final at Summit High. Webster Groves, thanks to McClure’s blast in the 56th minute, will host Visitation in a sectional contest on Tuesday. The Statesmen (20-1) carry a nine-match winning streak into the contest against the Vivettes, whom they beat 1-0 on May 6. McClure’s game-deciding tally was eye-popping, to say the least. She calmly ripped a high, looping shot that found its way into the upper left-hand corner of the net, just over the outstretched fingertips of Summit junior keeper Hanna Metzler. The shot seemed to stun the large crowd as fans on both sides exchanged looks of “Did that really happen?” as the Statesmen celebrated. “It was the McClure show today,” Summit coach Chris Kappler said. “Sometimes you get a player like that and she can stand on her head and make the difer-

ence. “And she certainly did.” When the foul was initially called, McClure looked over to the bench. Champion gave the go-ahead. “This is probably the best moment of my life,” McClure said. “We had one practice where we incorporated it. It’s not too different from a goal kick.” Time seemed to stand still as the ball remained in the air for a couple seconds. Metzler, who is friends with McClure from club play, was aware of her foot strength. “I had it for a while,” Metzler

said. “But, I just lost it at the last second.” As if her highlight-reel goal was not enough, McClure kicked her goalkeeping skills into overdrive after the tally. She recorded clutch stops on Mackenzie Litzsinger, Lily Schnieders, Colleen Malone and Julia Martens to preserve the one-goal lead. McClure’s best stop came when she dove to her left to deflect a shot by Malone that was headed for the lower right corner with just more than nine minutes left. “Megan is amazing, she won

the game for us,” Artherton said. Summit, which finished second in the state each of the last two years, held a territorial advantage throughout most of the contest. But McClure stonewalled the Falcons right from the outset. “Anybody that watched the game knows it was practically 70 to 30 (percent in Summit’s favor) with possession,” Kappler said. “They got that goal and they were able to fall into that shell and that made it hard for us to score.” Gretchen Skoglund and Atherton, who have 20 and 15 goals re-

spectively, created some chances of their own, especially in the first half. “It was a great game,” Champion said. “All the kids played well. They did a great job, they’ve done everything we asked.” Webster Groves and McClure are on a big-time roll. The Statemen have outscored their opponents 25-4 during the nine-game streak, which includes eight shutouts. ‘”If we keep playing like we’re playing, and Megan keeps doing things like this, we’re going to be tough to beat,” Skoglund said.

GIRLS SOCCER • CLASS 3 DISTRICT 3 CHAMPIONSHIP

BOOT IT LIKE MEGAN McClure’s 51-yard rocket leads Webster Groves past Summit in district showdown BY STEVE OVERBEY STLhighschoolsports.com

FENTON • Webster Groves soccer coach Thom Champion finally gave in. All season long, Statesmen senior goalkeeper Megan McClure had been lobbying to take free kicks, especially inside her own zone or near the midfield area. So Champion decided it was time to give his strong-footed a netminder a chance. During a training session on Tuesday, he allowed McClure to test her long-range skills. McClure’s bombs grew rave reviews in practice and he promised her a chance in an actual match — under the right circumstances. “She was so excited, so happy, it was all she talked about,” Webster Groves sophomore forward Emma Atherton said. McClure, given a rare chance to be an ofensive weapon, came through with flying colors on Thursday, drilling in a shot from 51 yards out of a free kick to give the Statesmen a 1-0 win over Summit in a power-packed Class 3 District 3 final at Summit High. Webster Groves, thanks to McClure’s blast in the 56th minute, will host Visitation in a sectional contest on Tuesday. The Statesmen (20-1) carry a nine-match winning streak into the contest against the Vivettes, whom they beat 1-0 on May 6. McClure’s game-deciding tally was eye-popping, to say the least. She calmly ripped a high, looping shot that found its way into the upper left-hand corner of the net, just over the outstretched fingertips of Summit junior keeper Hanna Metzler. The shot seemed to stun the large crowd as fans on both sides exchanged looks of “Did that really happen?” as the Statesmen celebrated. “It was the McClure show today,” Summit coach Chris Kappler said. “Sometimes you get a player like that and she can stand on her head and make the difer-

ence. “And she certainly did.” When the foul was initially called, McClure looked over to the bench. Champion gave the go-ahead. “This is probably the best moment of my life,” McClure said. “We had one practice where we incorporated it. It’s not too different from a goal kick.” Time seemed to stand still as the ball remained in the air for a couple seconds. Metzler, who is friends with McClure from club play, was aware of her foot strength. “I had it for a while,” Metzler

said. “But, I just lost it at the last second.” As if her highlight-reel goal was not enough, McClure kicked her goalkeeping skills into overdrive after the tally. She recorded clutch stops on Mackenzie Litzsinger, Lily Schnieders, Colleen Malone and Julia Martens to preserve the one-goal lead. McClure’s best stop came when she dove to her left to deflect a shot by Malone that was headed for the lower right corner with just more than nine minutes left. “Megan is amazing, she won

the game for us,” Atherton said. Summit, which finished second in the state each of the last two years, held a territorial advantage throughout most of the contest. But McClure stonewalled the Falcons right from the outset. “Anybody that watched the game knows it was practically 70 to 30 (percent in Summit’s favor) with possession,” Kappler said. “They got that goal and they were able to fall into that shell and that made it hard for us to score.” Gretchen Skoglund and Atherton, who have 20 and 15 goals re-

spectively, created some chances of their own, especially in the first half. “It was a great game,” Champion said. “All the kids played well. They did a great job, they’ve done everything we asked.” Webster Groves and McClure are on a big-time roll. The Statesmen have outscored their opponents 25-4 during the nine-game streak, which includes eight shutouts. ‘”If we keep playing like we’re playing, and Megan keeps doing things like this, we’re going to be tough to beat,” Skoglund said.

BOYS TRACK AND FIELD • CLASS 2A MASCOUTAH SECTIONAL

TIME TO SHINE Cahokia rolls to sectional team title, eyes seventh consecutive state crown BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

MASCOUTAH • Flat on his back,

wet towel on his head, Drew Wilkerson was dead to the world. A senior runner for the Freeburg boys track and field team, Wilkerson had just qualified for the state meet in the 800-meter race with a runner-up finish behind Cahokia’s Chris Stanley at the Class 2A sectional meet Thursday at Mascoutah High. Wilkerson crossed the line at 1 minute and 55 seconds to break his own school record. But the race nearly broke him. Nearly. Wilkerson rallied to run the first leg of the 1,600-meter relay with Noah Williams, Ian Alberts and Craig Collier to help the Midgets finish in third place in a school-record time of 3:25 to qualify for the state meet next week in Charleston. “It was a whole lot of heart. I definitely wasn’t running on my own strength there. That was all heart,” Wilkerson said. “We wanted to go to state and we wanted a school record today and I wasn’t going to give it up for my teammates. So I was going to go out and run as hard as I could.” Cahokia won the sectional championship with 122.5 points, followed by Marion (80), Mascoutah (71.5) and Freeburg (64). Cahokia coach Leroy Millsap can’t recall how many consecutive sectional titles the Comanches have won. His best guess was a dozen. “I don’t even know,” he said. Millsap’s focus has and remains on next week’s state meet. The six-time defending champion, Cahokia advanced more athletes to state than Millsap anticipated. With five seniors, one junior and a roster overloaded with freshmen and sophomores, Millsap expected good things to happen Thursday, but his team

actually surpassed his calculated predictions. “This group here is special. We even got a couple extra kids who made it we didn’t think would make it,” Millsap said. “I’m impressed with today. It’s a step in the right direction. I hope we continue to peak at the right time.” Stanley was a major player in the sectional championship and should be a force at state. The 5-foot-7 and 140-pound Stanley rocked the first leg of the 3,200 relay, which finished as the runner-up in 8 minutes and 5.76 seconds. Mascoutah got a great kick out of anchor leg Chris Ferguson-Scott to win the race in a season best 8:05.49. Stanley held of a late push by Wilkerson to take the 800 in 1:54. He then split just more than 48 seconds in the third leg of the 1,600 relay, which won in 3:20. Waterloo was the runner up in 3:22. “It never gets old,” Stanley said. “We work hard every day just to come up here and qualify for state. This is the new beginning to the end.” Millsap didn’t know if he’d have Stanley at the end of the season. The Missouri Westernbound runner suffered a hamstring injury at the Granite City Invitational on April 14. He returned to the track at the Collinsville Invitational on May 6. Thursday’s performance confirmed what Millsap hoped. “He’s back,” Millsap said. Cahokia’s performance as a unit was, as usual, dominating. Senior Marquis Murray won the 200 (22.82), with sophomore teammate Darreon West as the runner up in 22.89. Senior Brandon Roberson won the 400 (49.71) and ran legs on the sectional champion 400 relay (42.55) and the 1,600 relay. Senior Keondre Wells grabbed the sectional title in the 110 hur-

dles (14.87) and ran a leg on the victorious 800 relay (1:30). The Comanches continued their dominance in the jumps as Murray took top honors in the long jump (23 feet, 1.5 inches) and sophomore Andra Ward won the triple jump (45-7.75). Senior Shunn Grace was the triple jump runner-up at 44-8. The only sprint the Comanches didn’t win was the 100. Triad sophomore Johnnie Caswell overcame a moment of confusion to be the fastest man at the meet. He finished the 100 in 11.18 to edge Massac County’s Clayton Obermark, who finished in 11.19. Caswell’s form cratered near the finish line but still got his chest across first. “Sometimes I get confused where the finish line is so I lean early,” Caswell said. “I lost my balance, but I still kept it together. I just knew I had to finish it.” Caswell will make his state debut next week and hopes he will be healthy. He tweaked his left quadricep in the 200 and needed some help walking of the track. “I just tweaked my leg. I can come back for state,” Caswell said. “It feels good after all the hard work this season paid off. I have to thank my coach and my parents. They helped me get where I am now.” Freeburg senior Charlie Parrish won the 3,200 (9:47). Carterville’s Austin Knight won the 1,600 in 4:25. Carbondale monster Sam Sikon doubled up in the throws as he won the discus (170-9) and shot put (64-6). Niko Neal from Harrisburg won the 300 hurdles (39.59). Mount Vernon’s Eli Badger and Triad’s Jadon Elliott both cleared 14 feet, 7 inches in the pole vault but Badger did it in fewer attempts and was named the sectional champion. Massac County’s Isaiah Thompson won the high jump (6-3).

BOYS TENNIS • CLASS 2 STATE QUARTERFINALS

ON TO SPRINGFIELD Key doubles victory pushes Lindbergh past Marquette to state semiinals BY BILL HESTER Special to STLhighschoolsports.com

CLARKSON VALLEY •

Brett Kim is ranked No. 1 in the senior class at Lindbergh High School. Kim now hopes to be No. 1 in a pair of state tennis tournaments next week in Springfield. The lone senior in the starting six for the Flyers won the fifth and clinching match Thursday in a 5-1 victory over Marquette in a Class 2 boys team tennis state quarterfinal match at Marquette. “It was super exciting to win the final match today,” said Kim. “I was able to play my match today, keeping the ball deep, staying consistent and making my opponent mad. “ Kim qualified earlier in the week for the individual portion of the state tournament in doubles with Jack Faris. That tournament will be played May 26-27 at Cooper Tennis Complex. Lindbergh, which finished third at state as a team last year, will play Parkway Central in the

Class 2 team semifinals at 9 a.m. May 25 in Springfield. Despite the final score against Marquette, the match featured plenty of dramatics. The teams, which had played to 5-4 scores in regular-season matches the last two seasons with Lindbergh winning both times, split the Nos. 1 and 2 doubles matches in quick fashion. M a rq u e t te ’s S i m o n Kauppila and Trenton Wherry won at No. 1 doubles over Kim and Calvin Faris, 8-2. Lindbergh’s Ben Murray and Layton Wille won at No. 2 doubles over Jack Shi and Ethan Hinni, 8-3. The No. 3 doubles match changed the momentum. Lindbergh’s Jack Faris and Lukas Bell seemed in control with a 5-2 lead. But Marquette’s Michael Yin and Troy Siebert came back to win the next four games. The final three games were won by Faris and Bell, with several deuces in each game, for an 8-6 victory that put Lindbergh ahead 2-1. “That three doubles match was huge,” Lind-

bergh coach Brandon Murray said. “It had to happen. Doubles is so key in high school tennis. When you have the advantage, you can play more freely in singles.” Marquette also lost Siebert late in the doubles match as he suffered a probable broken wrist when diving for a ball in the final game. “That point shows what a competitor Troy is and how hard we play as a team,” Marquette coach Alex Nelle said. “That was a huge match because Lindbergh is very tough in singles. Last time we played them they beat us at four of six singles spots.” The emotional edge for Lindbergh was evident in singles as the Flyers took the first set at all six courts, coming from 2-5 deficits in a couple of them. Bell was first off the court as he defeated Jerry Li 6-2, 6-2 at No. 6 singles. Li was a late substitute for the injured Siebert. Ben Murray defeated Jack Shi 6-3, 6-4 at No. 3 singles and Kim closed it out with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Wherry at No. 2 sin-

gles. “I feel that under the circumstances the guys played to their abilities today,” Murray said. “I’m amazed, I’m happy, but most of all I am proud. They went out and took care of business. I am looking forward to next week. I will take these six guys against everybody

we play, especially after the way they played today. I trust them in any situation.” Parkway Central took advantage of a smoother road to the semifinals, d e fea t i n g H a ze lwo o d West 5-0 and Fort Zumwalt South 5-0 in sectional and quarterfinal dual matches.

Defending champion and favorite Rock Bridge and Rockhurst are on the other side of the Class 2 draw. “We need to take care of Parkway Central and then it will be one of the Rocks,” Kim said. “To be honest, I feel we are ready to play anybody. I think we are in sync now.”

Stadium opening for Rams, Chargers is delayed to 2020 BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

NFL fans in Los Angeles will have to wait another year to see Stan Kroenke’s palace in Inglewood, Calif. The Rams informed season-ticket holders Thursday that the scheduled opening of the estimated $2.6 billion stadium will be delayed a year — until the summer of 2020. That means the Rams, who moved back to Los Angeles from St. Louis this past season, will play a fourth season in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. “Obviously it’s a disappointment when you’ve been working on something every day,” Rams executive Kevin Demoff said via conference call Thursday evening. “But our organization has always taken the long-term approach on the Los Angeles project. This is important to get right. “Los Angeles has waited a long time for the NFL to return. They’ve waited a long time for a worldclass stadium. A long time for a sports and entertainment district. And we have talked from the beginning of this process about what Stan’s vision for these 300 acres at Inglewood was. “That it would be world class, it would be of the highest-quality, and it would be a game-changer in terms of the way stadiums and sports districts interact. What would be a bigger disappointment than pushing it back a year, is failing to deliver on that vision.” In an email to ticket holders, the Rams said record-setting rainfall in Southern California over the winter necessitated the delay: “Despite bringing drought relief to the region, the rain fell during the mass excavation period of construction when no other work could proceed in wet conditions. As a result, we experienced significant delays and lost the better part of two months from early January into the beginning of March.” Dale Koger of Legends Project Development, which is providing project management services for the stadium, said the initial construction plan anticipated about 30 rain days over the entire 36-month project. “We counted almost double that in two months, which came at the most critical time,” Koger said on the call. To meet FAA height requirements due to the structure’s proximity to Los Angeles International Airport, the stadium had to be built 90 feet under the ground. There were times during the extensive rainfall when there were 12 to 15 feet of water in the excavation, Koger said, bring work to a halt. The decision also afects the now-Los Angeles Chargers, who announced their decision to move north from San Diego at the end of the 2016 season, and will share the Inglewood stadium. For now, the Chargers are playing in the cozy StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., which will seat only 30,000 for football. Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Longtime Cards QB Hart enters Ring of Honor HART • FROM C1

view. In recent years, when former Cardinals were asked how Hart was doing, the reply was almost always: Not very good. With few details provided. So it was surprising to see Hart walk onto the outdoor stage with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell three weeks ago in Philadelphia to announce the Cardinals’ second-round draft pick on television. “The booing was pretty loud,” Hart said. “But it was every time (Goodell) walked out there. I don’t know what they don’t like about him.” (That of course, is another story.) “Anyway, as we’re walking out it was pretty strong,” Hart said. “I told Roger, ‘You know, I think some of that’s for me. They used to boo me when I came to town with the Big Red.’ “And he said, ‘Oh, I don’t know about that. They’ve been pretty hard on me.’” But just in case any Eagles fans in the crowd remembered when Hart and the Big Red were NFC East rivals, Hart walked up to the podium and deadpanned: “Thanks for remembering.” Hart always had a dry sense of humor. He was gray on top and a little heavier than his playing days when he announced the Cardinals’ pick, safety Budda Baker of the Washington Huskies. He also was walking with the aid of a cane. None of which should seem surprising for a 73-year-old who played games and practiced daily on the paper-thin early generation AstroTurf surface at Busch Stadium. “Practicing on it was really bad. It certainly did a number on all of us I’m pretty sure,” Hart said, speaking also of his former Big Red teammates. “Nothing seemed to manifest itself until I got into my 60s, like 64, 65. And then what did I have?” Hart then proceeded to go through the inventory of the medical hell he’s been through over the past decade. Three hip replacement surgeries — one left, two right. Three back surgeries, the third one last February. A quadruple bypass in 2014. He feels like he’ll need a left knee replacement at some point. “What am I leaving out?” Hart said. “Oh, I had cancer. Esophogeal cancer.” That was four years ago. Hart is cancer-free these days. And the cane he used draft weekend had nothing to do with past hip or back issues. On the night before the draft, Hart was on a bus in Philly with several other NFL “Legends,” heading out to dinner. Hart stepped of the bus ahead of his wife, to make sure she didn’t fall.

In the process, he lost his footing on the curb and fell right on his hip. “I’m tired of operations,” Hart thought to himself. He spent about three hours at a local hospital that night. It was painful fall, but nothing was broken. No operations needed. It turned out to be just a bruise. Two days later, cane in hand, Hart announced the Cardinals’ pick. About a week later, the team announced he would be inducted into its Ring of Honor this coming season at a game to be determined later. “That’s out of this world,” Hart said. “I’m just happy to be a part of it all.” Like many of the football Cardinals of his era, Hart didn’t have the best relationship with owner Bill Bidwill. “Bill Bidwill and I weren’t real close, but he wasn’t close to anybody really,” Hart said. “It’s hard for me to say anything bad about the man. He paid me for 18 years.” Then he added with a chuckle: “Albeit not very much.” Only five players in NFL history have played for the same team longer than Hart’s 18-year run with the Cardinals: • Kicker Jason Hanson spent 21 seasons with the Detroit Lions. • Offensive tackle Jackie Slater played 20 seasons for the Los Angeles and St. Louis Rams. • Cornerback Darrell Green played 20 seasons for Washington. (He and Hart actually were Redskins teammates in 1984, Hart’s last season in the NFL.) • Defensive lineman Jim Marshall played 19 years for Minnesota • Ofensive lineman Bruce Matthews played 19 seasons with Houston/Tennessee. “I’m surprised that it lasted that long, but it just kept going and going and going,” Hart said of his St. Louis tenure. “They tried to bring in other quarterbacks, but they just never measured up.” Yes, Hart threw more career interceptions (247) than touchdown passes (209), to the occasional chagrin of Cardinals fans. And his completion percentage was only 51.1 percent. But it was a diferent age. Except for the occasional screen pass to Terry Metcalf, there were no dinks and dunks. It was an age of the deep ball, which meant taking more chances, fewer completions, and more INTs. The Big Red teams of coach Don Coryell in the mid 1970s threw more than most teams of that age, but it pales in comparison to today’s pass-happy league. For example, Hart had only two seasons in which he threw more than 400 passes. Conversely, current New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees

has had only three seasons in which he’s thrown fewer than 500 or 600 passes. Hart was No. 3 in NFL career passing yards (34,665) when he retired, trailing only Fran Tarkenton and Johnny Unitas. Even now, he ranks 27th. “I know if Don Coryell had his way we would’ve thrown it every down but Jim Hanifan had a saner head on his shoulder, and we had a great ofensive line most of the time,” Hart said. Hanifan was the ofensive line coach at that time, during what was known as the “Cardiac Cards” era for the team’s penchant for close, nail-biting finishes. “I would come to the sideline for a timeout or a measurement or whatever, and Don is standing there with Jim Hanifan,” Hart recalled. “Don was saying, ‘Throw it! Throw it!’ And it’s like third-and-1. “And Hanifan would look at me and just roll his eyes. So I would look at Hanifan and say, ‘Should I?’ And he’d say, ‘You know what to do.’ And that was to give it to (Jim) Otis or Metcalf and run behind Dierdorf and (Conrad) Dobler.” However estranged relations may have been over the years between Bill Bidwill and Cardinals players, that has changed since son Michael Bidwill took over day-to-day operations of the club. “I mean all of us have stories about Bill and our times with him,” Hart said. “But Michael is not like his father. Michael is so — he just is aware of public relations. And being cordial to people. And obviously, he’s done a pretty outstanding job out there in Phoenix. Hart was three seasons removed from his playing career when the Cardinals left St. Louis for Phoenix in 1988, and felt bad for the city. The same held true when the Rams departed following the 2015 season. “It made me sick,” Hart said. “The real thing is they should’ve never let the Cardinals go. Then we wouldn’t have to be worried about this. It was a bad situation. It’s just sad because it just should’ve never have happened that way.” But that doesn’t diminish Hart’s excitement over his Ring of Honor induction. As he told the crowd in Philly, it’s always nice to be remembered. And he’s thankful that Michael Bidwill did. “He’s just a super-nice guy,” Hart said. “So I would go out of my way to do anything for Michael.” Even if it means walking out with a cane to a chorus of boos in Philadelphia.

Late-bloomer key for MU softball team MU • FROM C1

looking forward to it.” The Tigers head west with the fourth-most losses among the 64 teams in this year’s NCAA field. But thanks to playing in the nation’s strongest conference — the Southeastern Conference landed all 13 teams in the field — the Tigers secured a No. 2 seed in the Eugene Regional, drawing a first-round game against No. 3 seed Wisconsin (3820), the sixth-place team from the Big Ten. Oregon plays the later game Friday against No. 4 seed IllinoisChicago (38-20). As Mizzou continues to recover from the ofseason transfers of pitchers Paige Lowary and Tori Finucane, plus the season-ending elbow injury to third baseman Amanda Sanchez, Earleywine can’t imagine where the Tigers would be without Cheyenne Baxter, the Tigers’ savior in the circle. “Probably in big trouble,” he said of the senior righthander. “It’s always fun seeing who emerges and has that big year nobody expected. Thank God it was somebody on our pitching staff because we needed that more than anything.” With Lowary gone to Oklahoma, where she’s 13-2 for the Big 12 champion, and Finucane (5-1) pitching for Big Ten champion Minnesota, Earleywine expected to piecemeal together his rotation, hoping an ace would emerge from the mix of Baxter, a reliever her first two years at MU, sophomore Danielle Baumgartner, freshman Parker Conrad and Louisville transfer Madi Norman. Gradually, as the Tigers emerged from a bumpy stretch against nonconference opponents, Earleywine

COURTESY MU

Missouri pitcher Cheyenne Baxter accounted for team’s seven SEC wins.

settled on Baxter as Mizzou’s best arm for its biggest games, especially once she recaptured control of her riseball, a pitch she struggled to tame when the season began. An afterthought on the staff her first two years, when she was 6-2 with six starts in just 85 innings, Baxter has been MU’s most consistent pitcher since SEC play began. Baxter, 16-9 overall with a 2.30 ERA, earned all seven of MU’s wins in SEC play and dropped her ERA to 1.84 against league competition. MU’s other pitchers are a combined 13-17 with an ERA of 3.99. “I like taking on the role,” Baxter said. “I like being the one who’s in control, knowing that I have that efect on the game. It’s rough when

you’re sitting on the bench thinking, I wish I could be out there, I wish I could be in that situation.” “I’m sure it’s life-changing for her in many ways,” Earleywine said. “She’s a kid we didn’t know if she could throw a strike before she could throw four balls. We had a real short leash. She got real limited innings when we were up or down six or seven. Now here she is thrust into being our Friday night starter.” Baxter has always been a late bloomer. Back home in Norbonne, Mo., she was mostly a first baseman in high school before earning more trips to the circle as a senior. She didn’t pitch the one time Earleywine sent an assistant coach to her small town in Carroll County to watch her team play. She landed a scholarship at the University of Nebraska Omaha then transferred to Mizzou in 2014 after her freshman season, joining the Tigers as Earleywine’s third pitcher behind Finucane and Lowary. When both pitchers left the team last summer as the university wrapped up its investigation into allegations that Earleywine mistreated players — he was cleared of violating any federal laws by MU’s Title IX Oice — Baxter challenged herself to earn their innings. Not once this spring has Earleywine formally declared Baxter his ace, but she earned the title with her command and poise. “I just kept seeing my name more and more (in the lineup),” she said. “That’s when I was like, OK, he’s relying on me more. Then I started to expect it.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

SPLURGE OR SAVE Continued from Page 1 aford. Your health is everything. If you aren’t sleeping well, your mattress shouldn’t be the culprit. Sofa: Your sofa is not something you want to buy second-hand if you can help it. It will be one of the most-used pieces of furniture in your home, and your backside will thank you for not skimping in this department. Rugs: A good rug will completely

transform a room and generally is a key element to achieving the cozy feeling of a home. One with all natural ibers (think wool and cotton) will last longer than blends because they handle daily wear and tear like a champ. While size and material also afect price, a large natural iber rug is an investment piece that will bring you years of comfort. SAVE HERE Accent furniture: Headboards, nightstands, side tables and additional

seating in the living room (outside of your sofa). There is no need to spend a lot of money on these items. Statement head boards can be DIY’d, and nightstands and side tables can be found second-hand, or at inexpensive retailers for a fraction of the price. Remember, you will only be setting small items, such as a drink or a magazine, on them, so sturdy construction is not a priority. Accessories: These are the pieces that update a room through the seasons

and are normally fairly trendy. Don’t spend a lot on these items because you will likely trade them out often. Art: This is one place where you could splurge, but it depends more on your taste. Is art your thing? While you might decide to splurge on one piece, not all art needs to cost a fortune. Many great prints are mass produced and can be digitally downloaded. The most important question: “Do you enjoy it?” If you don’t enjoy it, it’s not worth a dime.

e all have favorite restaurants we like to go to with friends and family. The food is always good and has a relaxing atmosphere but it comes with a cost. Restaurants offer something everyone loves but it’s something you already have. A backyard, patio, balcony, good friends and family and great food. Consider what you can do with a natural gas grill and the money that can be saved while not compromising on the quality of the food. Cooking food on a natural gas grill is a two-step process. First, the natural gas is burned in order to heat the coal or porcelain briquettes. The heat is then transferred to the cooking surface of the grill. As an added bonus, a natural gas grill’s utility extends beyond that of a traditional grill. Some natural gas grill models even offer features that let you roast, braise, bake or fry. Think of a favorite cuisine or restaurant and put the natural gas grill to work.

T

wice a year the home furnishings world treks to High Point, North Carolina to the international furniture market. This is the largest furniture market in the world; it is the home furnishings industry’s equivalent of Fashion week. This year a team from Dau Furniture made the trip to High Point to ind the latest and greatest quality products to bring back to the St. Louis community. Dau saw beautiful new products, colors and trends. The Dau team is tasked with sifting through all the beautiful things they see and determining what is just a fad and what are solid trends that will translate to the St. Louis market. A few things that stuck out this year were the comeback of cerused wood, the introduction of many mixed media furniture pieces and the use of blue in a sea of neutral color pallets.

Sponsored Content and photos by Dau Furniture

MIXED MEDIA FURNITURE Furniture made from multiple materials was all the rage. There were cocktail tables made of a marble top with a metal base. There were beds made of metal, wood and fabric. There were sofas with metal legs. The list goes on and on. Often people think of these mixed medium pieces as purely a modern or contemporary style but the style range of these mixed medium pieces was all over the board. There were many traditional forms in metal with a wood accent. This mixed media furniture relates to the more casual living experience. Dau Furniture is bringing some of these new looks to their showroom loor by mid-summer.

COLOR TRENDS CERUSED WOOD Cerused wood is not a new idea and actually dates back to the 1500s. Essentially it is the idea of illing wood grain with a contrasting color to make the natural design of the wood pop in appearance. The high sheen wood inish has not gone away but the rise of the dry, more practical wood inish has become popular again lending itself to this beautiful cerused wood effect. Many different showrooms were showing pieces with this look, even the high-end designer lines like Century Furniture and Stickley Furniture. Stickley Furniture introduced many new pieces in a lat saw ash with four new dry modern inishes that really bring out the wood structure and celebrate the natural wood. Stickley showed many of these dryer inishes on their beloved quarter sawn oak mission pieces which completely updates this classic American style with a new modern look. These modern inishes are a light grey, deep almost black grey, light sand color and a dry medium brown inish. The trend of a more practical less fancy living space has become more and more popular and these dry inishes allow for living with and using the furniture without fear of damaging a high sheen inish.

Over the past few years the trend has been much more neutral color schemes with little pops of color here and there. At the market there were many neutral colors schemes but the pops of color were bigger and bolder. Instead of a little pop of color on a pillow, there were pops of color on the body fabric of a sofa or sectional. There were beautiful blue accents; blue was everywhere. Blue leather sofas, blue area rugs, blue china cabinets and tons of blue artwork. Green was another hot color. There were many different shades of green but the most prevalent were the deeper green tones. These deep, rich greens gave new depth to the color palette that hasn’t been seen in a few years. There were also pops of the light red, orange and peach tones. The Designers at Dau Furniture suspect the peach, orange and red tones will be making a strong comeback in the near future. Dau Furniture is always on trend. Stop by their 11,000 square foot showroom for the latest trends in quality home furnishings.

Maybe it’s an Illinois thing!” ➙ JERRY SCHILLIGO: “Having spent 57 years of my life in St. Louis and growing up in North County, I went to a Catholic grade school where chili was also served up with tubs of peanut butter, white bread and cheddar cheese sticks. To this day, I cannot eat a bowl of chili without peanut butter present.” ➙ BARRY HOEHN: “I haven’t eaten at Cork & Barrel, but I find the problem with most restuarants, especially the chains, is OVERseasoning.” ➙ MIKE POMATTO: “Provel is a deal breaker.”

Kiefer Sutherland is a ixture on the big and small screen, most recently as the president of the United States on “Designated Survivor.” But he’s also a charting musician.

This is what I’ve been doing for the past 30 years, and I’ve been really fortunate to have real success with that. That’s what I do, so, of course, it’s going to overshadow (the music).

Deeply felt, thoughtfully constructed and hugely entertaining, it’s one of the best shows the Black Rep has ever mounted.” Himes, the troupe’s founder and producing director, and Creath also head this production.

Pokey LaFarge

‘More questions’ New album by St. Louis’ Pokey LaFarge attempts to make sense of Michael Brown’s death BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / POP MUSIC CRITIC / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

S

t. Louis singersongwriter Pokey LaFarge knew he would say something musically to attempt to make sense of the 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson. “I didn’t feel pressure to write something of a socio-political nature. But at the same time, not doing it, you have to be accountable for that,” the 33-yearold rootsy-rock singer says. LaFarge knew he was coming from the perspective of “growing up a middle-class white guy from a small town in Illinois. What the (expletive) do I know about being a person of color? I felt hesitant to try to speak for anyone other than myself. I don’t pretend

6

to have the answers. There are more questions than answers.” What LaFarge came up with was “Riot in the Streets,” a song from “Manic Revelations,” his seventh release and fifth with the South City Three, his band. Lyrics to the song include: “Right or wrong, battle lines are drawn / like the diference ’tween dusk and dawn / black and white in the light of day / but at night there’s only shades-of-gray / preacher speakin’, fist raised singin’ / Barely missin’, tear gas whistlin’ / Walking down West Florissant Road / It feels like this city is gonna explode.” On “Riot in the Streets,” a song he says is open to interpretation, “I was trying to make sense of this city I live

MOST-SHAZAMED SONGS FOR MAY 16 1 “I’m the One” (DJ Khaled feat. Justin Bieber & Quavo & Chance the Rapper & Lil Wayne) 2 “First Day Out” (Tee Grizzley) 3 “That’s What I Like” (Bruno Mars) 4 “Redbone” (Childish Gambino) 5 “Something Just Like This” (The Chainsmokers & Coldplay) 6 “HUMBLE.” (Kendrick Lamar) 7 “Say You Won’t Let Go” (James Arthur) 8 “Wish I Knew You” (The Revivalists) 9 “Believer” (Imagine Dragons) 10 “Xo Tour Llif3” (Lil Uzi Vert)

in, why it happened and why it happens almost every day across the country to people who have been marginalized for generations. Why are there so many deaths by police oicers?” At the time of the unrest in Ferguson, LaFarge was living in the Tower Grove neighborhood, where demonstrations also took place. “Stuf was happening right in my own backyard. I saw the peaceful protesters on Grand. I was standing with the people there as a peaceful protester,” he says, adding that the song just came to him. “That’s how songwriting comes about. I needed to write this song as much as I needed to write any song.” In writing it, the lyrics changed every day as events unfolded. It’s a rare instance of LaFarge writing in response to an event. “Everyone wants you to pick a side,” says LaFarge, who says he supports police oicers and the work they do. “I don’t feel like you have to pick a side. I’m with the people. But at the same time I’m not a protest singer. I’m not trying to add more anger into music or into the world.” He knew the song would get some blowback, acknowledging that his fan base is predominantly white. “I don’t keep my ear to the ground for positive or negative feedback. There’s not a whole lot of benefit to my life to hear what people are saying about me.” Another song gaining traction from “Manic Revelations” is “Better Man Than Me,” which takes a bit of its inspiration from Queen’s “Crazy Little

Thing Called Love.” Also on the album is “Must Be a Reason,” which is the next single. LaFarge says the new album is different from his previous works. There’s not much swing on it, and there’s heavier drum, bass, electric guitar, effects and a horn section, reflecting that “things were exploding around the world and in my head. There’s so much noise everywhere. I just knew for today my music needed to be bigger and louder.” In approaching “Manic Revelations,” LaFarge didn’t have any particular goals in mind. He says he never does. “What I’m trying to say with my music as an art form is one thing,” he says. “What I’m trying to say as a person is one thing. Everything you are as a person will come out through your music. ... “I can’t ignore all the things I’m seeing and feeling, and I’m writing from this manic state of mind. You’re digging deeper within yourself, seeing something you don’t quite know where it comes from.” LaFarge brings the album to fans with a release concert Saturday night at the Pageant. “I’m superexcited to bring this record to the people of St. Louis and to show of my hot band,” he says. “We’re getting supertight, and people are really giving us a warm response.” LaFarge recently completed a promo tour that hit England, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. It will be followed by a national tour that begins with the hometown show. “They loved the new songs as much as we love performing them. At the same time, we’re throwing in some old stuf and some surprises, some rearrangements and maybe an old cover.” WHAT Pokey LaFarge’s “Manic Revelations” Album Release Show • WHEN 8 p.m. Saturday • WHERE The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard • HOW MUCH $30-$40 • MORE INFO ticketmaster.com

do people diferentiate that they are in Belleville, besides our beautiful Veterans Memorial Fountain? How do we bring art into people’s lives? How do we make our city different than other cities?” Since then, the city has acquired several sculptures each year. A few are donated by patrons or artists, some are bought with fair proceeds, and others are purchased with money from corporations, organizations and other groups. The city maintains and installs the sculptures. Some of the pieces are created by sculptors who work with area students, such as the “Blooming in Belleville” sculpture near a retaining wall along West Main Street at Granvue Drive. Milwaukee artist Marina Lee led a workshop with two Belleville elementary schools to create the five relief pieces that look like a cross between flowers and undersea creatures. “The pieces are so much fun because they all have stories,” Gregory says. Reception has been positive, except for a social media campaign in 2012 rallying against the big, red shoe. Some wanted to replace it with a monument to actor Buddy Ebsen, a Belleville native known for playing TV’s Jed Clampett and Barnaby Jones. You can’t please everyone, Gregory says with a shrug.

Artistic landscape Art on the Square fair supports Belleville’s growing public sculpture program BY VALERIE SCHREMP HAHN / VHAHN@POST-DISPATCH.COM

S

lowly, for about a decade now, the landscape of Belleville has changed. Brides and little birthday girls in tiaras pose for pictures next to the giant, red highheel shoe at West Main Street and Washington Avenue. Kids climb on the colorful mushrooms in Bellevue Park and straddle the big, metal dog in Ever and Anon Park. Passers-by pause in front of sculptures dedicated to lost loved ones, such as the trio of metal pieces in Belleville’s public square. And students smile next to the sculptures they helped create,

such as the colorful bench outside Governor French Academy or the blueand-green metal piece outside Belleville West High School. More than 50 sculptures dot Belleville’s landscape, many in parks and public buildings and at schools and libraries, thanks to Art on the Square. The fair’s 16th installment is Friday through Sunday. Patty Gregory, the fair’s executive director, says she was inspired to launch the Sculpture in the City program about 10 years ago. “I had been thinking, when you travel on a highway, every city starts looking the same. How

committee that oversees the program, leads twice-yearly tours of the sculptures that draw eager crowds, she says. One metal sculptor, Dale Rogers of Massachusetts, who has created several of Belleville’s pieces, including one called “Hand” outside Belleville East High School and the dog in Ever and Anon Park, loved the Sculpture in the City program so much that he got similar programs going in other cities. The sculptures are something residents and visitors can enjoy yearround, beyond Art on the Square, which has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for several years by the Art Fair SourceBook website. That ranking is based on sales from the more than 100 artists who attend. Last year, the fair pulled in $1.4 million in sales. This year, visitors can buy (or just browse) pieces from artists all over the United States and overseas. There’s also food and drink from area restaurants, a children’s art area and sessions by HGTV designer Jennifer Bertrand, who will talk and arrange furniture and art from the fair on a stage resembling a room in a house. The Illinois American High School Art Exhibit in the Bank of America lobby is the latest of its kind in the area, featuring work from students in more than 40 high schools. People come from all over the country to enjoy the fair, says Gregory, now realizing her dream of setting Belleville apart. One year during a patron survey, the group met a man from the posh 90210 ZIP code in Beverly Hills. He said he tried to travel to the top five art shows of the year and that he planned to return next year. The surveyor asked why. “This is going to be No. 1 next year,” the man said. “And we were,” Gregory says. WHAT Art on the Square • WHEN 5-10 p.m. Friday,

Collins is a relative newcomer to the area, he says. He’s lived here only 22 years. But he probably knows more about long-gone institutions — from fried chicken loaf to roller rinks — than many natives. “Lots of people miss cafeterias,” he says.

And drive-ins. Even radio stations. In fact, St. Louisans retain a deep well of nostalgia, Collins says. “There is an immense amount of pride.” The Elmira, N.Y., native is director of strategic development for Photos Unlimited in the Bee Hat building downtown. But his passion is history. Collins, 46,

has an admired blog, Distilled History (distilledhistory.com), and has volunteered for five years at the Campbell House Museum on Locust Street. The glamorous historic home gave him a great start for his research,connecting him to many people with similar interests (he cherishes talking to two of the home’s gift shop workers who are in their 80s).

Collins even dedicates his book to “Rob and Ginny,” an allusion to the house’s owners: Robert Campbell, a former fur trapper and hotel owner, died in 1879; Virginia Campbell, society hostess to the likes of President Ulysses S. Grant, died in 1882. The author spent about two years researching “Lost Treasures,” with some

Most focus on the city and county, but a few are farther afield (like Cahokia Downs and Noah’s Ark restaurant in St. Charles). Along with working at the Campbell House, Collins learned about St. Louis just by driving around with his mother.

Still, he writes: “A beer in an unknown corner tavern can be just as important to someone as a spectacular night in Gaslight Square is to someone else. Each creates its own kind of lasting memory for the person or people who hold it dear.” So a few taverns show up, like George Edick’s Roaring 20s and Eisele’s Bavar-

ian Inn, which Collins wishes he could have visited. He also missed, of course, St. Louis’ experiment with licensed prostitution.

but to cheat on a lover is relatively uncharted territory. As Mary and Michael sort out their feelings, they must deal with an untimely visit from their judgmental son, Joel (Tyler Ross), and his peppy girlfriend, Erin (Jessica Sula). “The Lovers” is the rare film that acknowledges that romance isn’t limited to people in their 20s and 30s. It’s also a smart, quirky comedy that moviegoers of any age should find eminently appealing. Working from his own screenplay, director Azazel Jacobs (“Terri”) has a sure feel for the ways in which the need for comfort can be compromised by the impulse to break free. Winger, who has appeared onscreen only sporadically in recent years, is terrific as So far, the afairs have been kept a woman struggling to secret — to the frustration of cope with conflicting Robert and Lucy, who can’t COMING SUNDAY desires.

Q&A

Actress Debra Winger on the ‘mystery’ of love stories BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

ebra Winger was one of the biggest movie stars of the 1980s and ’90s, delivering a breakout performance in “Urban Cowboy” (1980) and receiving Oscar nominations for “An Oicer and a Gentleman” (1982), “Terms of Endearment” (1983) and “Shadowlands” (1993). Since then, her roles have been less frequent. She turned in a wellregarded supporting performance in the ilm “Rachel Getting Married” (2008) and is part of the cast of the Netlix series “The Ranch.” But Winger has a lead role in the new big-screen romantic comedy “The Lovers” — and is earning raves. Recently, she spoke with Go! Magazine about the ilm, which was written and directed

by Azazel Jacobs. The interview has been edited for length and clarity. • “The Lovers” has a unique tone. What went into making that work? I call it a mystery. But that’s because most love stories, if they’re told right, really are. The best examinations of love are ones that remind us that we have no clue. We can try to make it stay, we can think we can control it, but it’s one of the most sustainable magic acts. When you say “the tone,” that’s a living, breathing organism. I often don’t know when something is comedic — because, as in life, we don’t often know when we’re funny. We’re doing something, and suddenly our partner’s laughing at us and we’re going, “What?”

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

• What made you want to do the ilm? I was in New York, at an independent theater, and I saw (Jacobs’ 2011 ilm) “Terri.” I identiied something in his work that (brought to mind) my earlier days of working and the freedom that (“Urban Cowboy” director) James Bridges — who really was my mentor — gave to me as an actor.

• Is it true that early in your career you were interested in being a stand-up comedian? Yeah, I started out doing that. I was very, very young, and I was writing humor that was not really appropriate for me. Or I guess it was appropriate for the way I thought inside, but it wasn’t appropriate for the way I looked on the outside. • You worked with the late director Jonathan Demme — who won an Oscar for “The Silence of the Lambs” — on “Rachel Getting Married.” What was that experience like for you? I’ve been thinking about those days a lot lately and all the years leading up to that. The shock of the loss of Jonathan (April 26) was because he was so fully invested in life until the moment he was gone. And he also had a childlike spirit that was absolutely undeniable.

It’s not the kind of news that Christopher Oram (Billy Crudup) had hoped to wake to — but then, he hadn’t expected to ascend from second-in-command to leader. Oram also has trouble dealing with terraforming expert Daniels (Katherine Waterston), who quickly emerges as his rival for control of the Covenant. Daniels and Oram clash over whether to proceed to Origae-6, the

planet earmarked for colonization, or detour to a closer destination that appears to have an Earthlike atmosphere. Oram pulls rank and opts for the latter. Upon landing, the crew finds out — the hard way — that things aren’t as they appear to be. Yes, they seem to be in paradise, but there’s something dangerous in the air — something that has the element of surprise on its side. And Walter comes face to face with a lookalike named David (also Fassbender) whose welcoming manner belies a hidden agenda. Fans of the “Alien” franchise who found the prequel “Prometheus” (2012) to be insuiciently hair-raising will be in heaven this time around. “Alien:

Covenant” is one of the most terrifying films ever made. It’ll have moviegoers gripping their armrests and fighting the impulse to shield their eyes. Working from a screenplay by John Logan (“Skyfall”) and Dante Harper, director Ridley Scott — who helmed the original “Alien” (1979) — has come up with a stylish, nonstop crowdpleaser that delivers big-time. And in Waterston, he has an actor who proves to be an inspired successor to Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Reportedly, at least two more “Alien” prequels are planned.

An icky ride For ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: he Long Haul,’ series ratchets up the gross factor ★★ BY JODY MITORI / SPECIAL TO GO! MAGAZINE

he best indicator of whether you’ll like the film version of “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” is whether you think flying vomit is funny. That scenario doesn’t happen in the book, part of author Jef Kinney’s wildly successful series for kids. The movie version of “The Long Haul” still features a disastrous family vacation but

stone and bland Tom Everett Scott play beleaguered parents Susan and Frank. Susan decides that her family needs quality time together in the form of a road trip to their Meemaw’s 90th birthday party. As they start the drive, Susan tries to make it educational by outlawing screens and making the kids listen to Spanish language tapes in the car. But that’s just the beginning of Greg’s misery. Along the way, the family stays in a roach-infested motel, visits a country fair and gets attacked by birds — with each scene involving some kind of disgusting encounter. By the time a large, hairy man sits on a toilet, you may just want to close your eyes and ears.

Director David Bowers, who also helmed the second and third Wimpy Kid films, still incorporates Kinney’s signature illustrations. But “The Long Haul” difers from the other Wimpy Kid movies because it focuses solely on Greg’s family, not his school friends. Watching kids avoid rotting cheese was funny in the first film. Seeing Silverstone deal with a boy’s bottled urine is just embarrassing. Most likely, Wimpy Kid fans will embrace the gross jokes. The rest of us can hope the inevitable next film is better. As if.

Split decision In ‘Chuck,’ the drama outside the ring is less potent than the drama inside ★★½ BY PAT PADUA / WASHINGTON POST

boxer named Rocky sounds like a hero: likable, steadfast, iconic. A boxer named Chuck, on the other hand, sounds like an ordinary guy — albeit one who “can take a punch,” to quote the title character of the boxing movie “Chuck.” Based on the true story of Chuck Wepner — the new Jersey heavyweight whose moment in the spotlight inspired Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky,” the drama proves that real life isn’t quite like the movies. And “Chuck” isn’t exactly “Rocky.”

P H O T O : S A R A H S H AT Z

A

stltoday.com/go

Early in the film we see Chuck (Liev Schreiber) fighting an unusual opponent: a bear. The cheap spectacle suggests a man less hungry for victory than one desperate for attention. The real-life Wepner — nicknamed the “Bayonne Bleeder” for his tendency to get cut during fights — had a day job selling liquor. A subject of both local admiration and ridicule, Wepner was a screw-up: By his own admission, his best trait in the ring was the ability to simply keep standing. As the film notes, outside the ring, he also struggled, with his

wandering eye putting a strain on his marriage to Phyllis (Elisabeth Moss), who finally leaves him after one afair too many, taking their daughter with her. As “Chuck” gets underway, the 35-year-old boxer sees himself as a has-been who never was, much like the character of Louis “Mountain” Rivera in the 1962 film “Requiem for a Heavyweight,” from which Chuck likes to quote. But Chuck’s career gets an unexpected boost in 1975 when he’s invited by promoter Don King to fight the heavyweight champion of the world, Muhammad Ali. Their matchup is the film’s only major fight, and it comes at the end of the movie’s first act. The real struggle for Chuck is yet to come and concerns what he does with the ensuing fame. Boxing movies, from 1949’s “The

Set-Up” to 2015’s “Creed,” are usually emotionally pummeling afairs, with their broken protagonists often undergoing bodily punishment that parallels — and reveals — a less physical vulnerability. Although the central match in “Chuck” is efective and hits all the right beats, unlike the best of the “Rocky” movies, the drama outside the ring is less potent than drama inside. This, despite strong performances by Schreiber and — especially — Moss, a grounding presence who summons a toughness not usually seen in her work. Arguably, the story of a habitual loser should resonate as much as — if not more than — that of a winner. But the film keep us at arm’s length emotionally, filtering its antihero’s troubles through a layer of 1970s nostalgia. The screenplay (by Jef Feuerzeig, Jerry Stahl, Michael Cristofer and Schreiber) charts a familiar arc of failure and redemption, but director Philippe Falardeau (“Monsieur Lazhar”) doesn’t have Stallone’s eye for delineating the contours — both the highs and the lows — of the American Dream. “Chuck” is, finally, the story of an unhappy man chasing fame, while failing to notice that the people in his life already love him for who he is. Chuck isn’t larger than life, and neither is “Chuck.” Its charms are, like its hero, imperfect. WHAT “Chuck” • RUN TIME 1:38 • RATING R • CONTENT Coarse language throughout, drug use, sexuality, brief nudity and some bloody fight scenes

Director Matt Tyrnauer makes the subject lively. WASHINGTON POST ‘Get Out’ ★★★ R • 1:43 • Writer-Director Jordan Peele (“Key & Peele”) largely leaves comedy behind for a violent horror tale about a black man (Daniel Kaluuya) who meets his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) creepy parents.

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU The Humble Pie is now open at 9783 Clayton Road in Ladue, in the former Red-L Pizza space. Its owners are Jessica and Mark Lucas, the married team behind Fozzie’s Sandwich Emporium in Richmond Heights and Des Peres. There’s no indoor seating, but there is a patio. Humble Pie ofers both a thin and a thick, Sicilian-style crust. There are 19 “signature” pies, and while this list begins with a classic margherita and ends with the Humble Supremo (pepperoni, sausage and bacon with mushroom, olive and green peppers), it tends toward the creative. Pizza is available for carryout or delivery, and slices are available at lunch. The menu also ofers soups, salads and, for dessert, hand pies and pie pops. Humble Pie is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

red the only splash of bright color. The menu includes pasta con broccoli and Bosco stufed breadsticks. The most exotic pizzatopping combination is beef brisket, bacon and Provel. (No, I didn’t try it.) Owner Derick Wellman has managed pizzerias in the past. He’s also worked as a real estate appraiser. Currently, he’s the sensei of a judo club in Overland. If this alone doesn’t pique your curiosity, I don’t know what else to tell you. Fine: The handtossed pies at Amore Pizza probably won’t change your life, but they will make you happy. The crust is a pleasing balance of airy and chewy, the sauce isn’t too sweet, and the mozzarella is thickly applied and beautifully blistered. This is pizza to eat when what you want to eat is pizza, not a historical-anthropological-cultural debate about pizza. (Pizzas cost $7.99 and up depending on size and toppings. You can also order thin-crust St. Louis-style pizza.) Besides pizza, I recommend the salsiccia sandwich with cheese ($7.99). It’s a mess of marinara, red onion and green peppers, but worth it for the mildly spicy sausage, which the kitchen has formed into a long, thick patty rather than a snappy link. Tucked into the upper-right corner of the menu is fried chicken. This isn’t an afterthought. The half-chicken meal ($11.99) brings four pieces of

MAK’S PUB & GRUB

A couple of weeks before Michael Makhamreh opened his mac-andcheese restaurant Mak’s Pub & Grub in Princeton Heights, he still hadn’t decided it would be a mac-and-cheese restaurant. The 23-year-old Makhamreh, a graduate of Hickey College’s Culinary Institute of St. Louis, knew he wanted to cook bar food. “I’ve always been into the bar-food style,” he tells me on the phone. “I’ve always thought I could cook it better than other people.” But Makhamreh also knew this stretch of Gravois Avenue was already home to bar food (Pepper’s Grill & Bar) and gastropub fare (Quincy Street Bistro) that he respected. His answer was right there in the name Mak’s, of course, and a menu of six diferent versions of mac and cheese alongside a few staples (a burger, wings, fried chicken tenders) quickly followed. “The only real way to succeed in this business nowadays is to do something diferent,” Makhamreh says. Makhamreh acknowledges his isn’t St. Louis’ first mac-and-cheese joint. There was Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese, which closed in 2015 after a nearly five-year run. Cheese-ology wasn’t a fast-casual chain, but it looked and operated like one. Mak’s looks and operates like a neighborhood bar. It’s family-friendly, though. The

“classic” mac and cheese ($8) received my 3-year-old’s stamp of approval. Mine, too. Makhamreh tosses cavatappi with a thick, sharp four-cheese blend. (He doesn’t divulge the entire recipe, but beer cheese is a prominent component.) A sauce of applewood-smoked blue cheese is the smoky, funky base of the Fried Chicken MAK ($9.50).

President Trump’s tweets, on “The Late Show”

explains that “my greatest failure, or maybe my greatest weakness, is that I always wanted to please people.” “The Wizard of Lies” jumps around in time and place, from a party at the Madofs’ palatial beach home in Montauk, Long Island, to the courtroom where Madof is being sentenced, to the dreadful aftermath for his family. The most successful scenes showcase the victims, who deserve a movie of their own. Because Madof’s story has so little action and such an amorphous lead character, Levinson tends to overdirect at times, as in a scene in which a would-be investor confronts Madof at a party. Madof’s strategy for making the man desperate to give him more and more money is purposely drowned out by a jazz drummer, the music rising to ear-splitting levels. With no way out, Madof tells his interviewer, his modest hope was that “the world would come to an end,” maybe, after 9/11, when “I’d be dead and everyone would be gone.” As the movie ends, he turns the tables, asking Henriques directly: “Do you think I’m a sociopath?” De Niro was asked that same question when HBO introduced “The Wizard of Lies” to TV critics in Los Angeles. “What he did is beyond my comprehension,” he said. “There’s a disconnect somehow in him, and I still would like to understand.” Asked the same question, Henriques had a shorter answer: “Yes.” WHAT “The Wizard of Lies” • WHEN 7 p.m. Saturday • WHERE HBO • MORE INFO hbo. com/movies/the-wizard-of-lies

2017 FORD ESCAPE It just wants to do things right As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. I was trying to be gentle with the 2017 Ford Escape when what it really wanted was a swift kick in the rump. It was the hands-free function on the power-liftgate that had me puzzling. That tailgate is designed to open automatically -- no hands required -- when a toe is lashed under the rear bumper, making life easy for someone with an armload of stuff. I’d wiggle my foot under the rear bumper, awkwardly balancing on one foot like a drunken lamingo, and the gate sometimes would open, sometimes wouldn’t. So I surrendered and checked the owner’s manual. Don’t wiggle your foot, it said, use a swift forward-back kicking motion. I did, eliminating the need for lengthy one-foot balancing, and the hands-free tailgate opened and closed lawlessly every time. Lesson learned. I guess Escape just wanted me to do things right . . . like it does. Mostly. For its 2017 mid-cycle update, Escape, offered in S, SE and Titanium trim, gets a host of improvements, including two new engines. The base motor remains a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which can be had only with front-wheel drive, but above that are a 1.5-liter, 179-hp turbo four and a 2.0-liter, 245-hp turbo four, each available with front- or all-wheel drive

DRIVING WITH DAN By Dan Wiese - Automotive Writer

2017 Ford Escape

Ford’s best-selling nameplate after F-Series is Escape, which in 2017 has been given a facelift and, more importantly, a pair of new turbocharged engine choices.

and each managed by a six-speed automatic transmission.

Active Park Assist, which we found easy to use and fully functional.

We sampled a front-wheel drive 1.5L in tony Titanium togs -- lesser Escape trims include S and SE -- and found it quiet at-speed, smooth on the road, athletic in its handling and determined in its braking. All good.

New among infotainment goodies is a SYNC Connect smartphone app that enables remote starting and locking, enhancing a SYNC 3 system that already supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Acceleration, however, was leisurely. The 1.5L Escape’s zero-to-60 run is within shouting distance of 10 seconds, so bring lunch. And, alas, while the EPA thought we’d get 26 mpg in a mix of city/hwy driving, our 130-mile experience registered just 22 mpg.

Style-wise, Escape jettisons the old thin-lipped countenance in favor of a more-elegant hexagonal maw.

The good news is this diminutive engine, with its 177 lb.-ft. of torque all on deck at an accessible 2,500 rpm, feels good around town.

It all adds up to a mid-cycle update that could help Escape, which was a top-ive seller among SUVs in 2016, to give more competitors a swift kick in the rump. Dan Wiese is a freelance automotive writer. You can e-mail him at: drivingwithdan@gmail.com

Among Escape’s new driver-assist tecnologies are lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise with collision warning and brake support and Enhanced

WHEN ENGINE IS SHOT, DO YOU GO WITH REMANUFACTURED OR REBUILT? CAR TALK Dear Car Talk: “I recently inherited the car I spent my childhood washing. It’s a ‘94 Ford Explorer with the tow package. I know you’re going to say that Explorers have problems, but I really love this car ... even though it has no air bags. It won’t be my commuter car; it will get used when I climb the 14,000-foot peaks out here in Colorado. The head gasket is blown, even though the engine has only 65,000 miles on it. I was leaning toward having a Jasper remanufactured engine put in. My line of thought was that due to the engine’s age and the overheating that caused the blown gasket, other things might be ready to go, and a new engine would cut down on future repairs. However, on your radio show, I recently heard you recommend that a caller have her engine rebuilt instead. Which is the best option for me?” — Brandon

machinery and expertise to do it very well. That means the tolerances (the spaces between the things that really matter) are likely to be more accurate, which produces better results and fewer problems later on. If you have a car that’s so old, or so rare, a remanufactured engine is not an option, then you need to decide between having a local shop rebuild it for you and buying a new one (if you can even get it). But your Explorer was common enough Jasper and other companies can make a good business out of remanufacturing those engines and selling them.

So, that’s exactly what I’d get. In fact, we’ve bought dozens of remanufactured engines from Jasper over the years and I remember only one of them that caused us any trouble. And we called them up and they said, “Oops, sorry, we’ll send you another engine.” Plus, I think they come with a three-year, 100,000-mile warranty that includes labor. So, unless you have a strong desire to support your local economy and want to have a local shop rebuild the engine for you, I’d get the Jasper engine. Then you won’t have to worry about

the engine again and you can concentrate on worrying about the rest of the Explorer. Keep your car on the road and out of the repair shop by ordering Click and Clack’s pamphlet “Ten Ways You May Be Ruining Your Car Without Even Knowing It!” Send $4.75 (check or money order) to Car Talk/Ruin, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803.

Yeah, I wouldn’t worry about the lack of air bags. When you careen off one of those 14,000-foot mountains, they won’t help you anyway.

© 2017 by Ray Magliozzi and Doug Berman. Distributed by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

If you’re planning to keep the car for a long time, then I think a remanufactured engine always is the best option, if you can get one. There are factories that do nothing but remanufacture engines and they have the

SHARING THE ROAD Sponsored Content by Doc’s Harley-Davidson According to the National Highway Trafic Safety Administration, nearly half of all motorcycle crashes involve another motor vehicle. Almost 40 percent of those incidents were due to the other vehicle turning left in front of a motorcyclist. It is important for passenger vehicles and motorcycles to share the road and create a safe traveling experience for everyone. Motorcycles are vehicles that are given the same rights as any other vehicle on American highways. However, there are extra safety measures that should be taken by motorcyclists and the passenger vehicle driving among them. PASSENGER VEHICLE RESPONSIBILITIES Motorcycles feature a much smaller proile than other vehicles on the road. This may make it more dificult to see them in blind spots, or judge the distance and speed when they are approaching. This means taking extra care when a motorcycle is approaching. As a passenger vehicle driver, you cannot always trust a motorcycle’s turn signal. These typically don’t self-cancel like a car, and the cyclist may have forgotten to manually stop the signal. Always analyze the motorcycle’s actions before proceeding.

Small potholes can be incredibly dangerous to a motorcycle. Give them plenty of room to adjust to road hazards or emergency stops. A motorcycle can usually brake much faster than cars, which can result in a fatal rear-end accident if following too closely. MOTORCYCLIST RESPONSIBILITIES As a motorcyclist, it is your job to ensure that you are visible to other drivers on the road. This means keeping your headlights on at all times and using relective strips so you’re easily seen at night.

A bike also requires a greater following distance than a passenger vehicle.

12

RIDES MAGAZINE

It is also important to stay in your lane like other vehicle types are required to do. Never weave in and out of lanes. This can create great levels of damage to yourself and other drivers. Always keep an eye out for turning vehicles. You should give other vehicles a three- or four-second lead time to give you suficient time to react to emergency situations. Groups of motorcyclists should ride in a staggered position. This increases visibility to other motorists and sets the pace for safe following distance.

The bidding could use some explaining. Today’s deal was actually played some years ago, and all of the players at the table were pretty good players, if not experts. The stakes were moderately high. South decided to show off his impressive imagination by opening one no trump. This promised 15-17 points, but this was close enough

for South. East’s double was “protective,” he said, whatever that means. West was pleased to leave it in for penalties, and North made what he thought was an “SOS” redouble, asking partner to run out to a suit. South, still admiring his opening bid, thought that the redouble was for business and he passed. East-West can take the first 11 tricks, which would be a penalty of 2800 points — enough to keep them in steak and lobster for at least two weeks. Something terrible happened on the way to the restaurant. West led the five of clubs, “fourth from his longest and strongest”. South was too excited to speak when his queen of clubs took the first trick. He just showed the opponents his six diamond tricks and claimed his redoubled contract. Instead of losing 2800 points, he won 760 points and the rubber. “Waiter,” shouted South. “Can I order something to eat, please?” East and West had lost their appetites. (05/19/17)

DEAR ABBY

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

Grandparents veto couple’s family plan

Dear Stressed • I know you want to be a good daughter, but you are allowing your parents (and in-laws) to weigh in on a decision

that should be yours and your husband’s alone. Your reason for not wanting to postpone motherhood makes sense. Understand that not everyone wants to be a grandparent and be glad you’re finding out upfront that the parents will not be baby-sitting. Many disappointed readers have written me after the fact to express their dismay when they realized it. Take from this the lesson that you must live your own life. And, by the way, so should your sister. If there are consequences from her elopement, she should experience them. But under no circumstances should you allow yourself to be dragged into her drama. Dear Abby • I have a wonderful husband I love deeply and can’t imagine my life without. We have a beautiful marriage. We never fight or really even argue. We have been together for 11 years and only during the last couple of years has he started doing something that troubles me.

In the afternoon or evening, if I need to go to the store — or anywhere for that matter — he gets upset and gives me the silent treatment and doesn’t want me to go. I trust him and let him do whatever he wants. I have never given him a reason to not trust me, so why does it make him so angry if I need to run to the store? — FEELING MISTRUSTED IN THE SOUTH Dear Feeling Mistrusted • What you are describing is a red flag that if ignored could ruin your beautiful marriage. Your husband’s insecurity and need to control you may stem from the fact that he has been hiding something from you. Tell him that you love him, but for the sake of your marriage, the two of you should go to couples counseling. 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. Apron is diferent. 2. Leg is moved. 3. Picture is moved. 4. Oven handle is added. 5. Tie is diferent. 6. Stove knob is moved.

Dear Abby • I have been married for almost five years, and my husband and I recently decided to try to have a baby. I am really excited about the possibility of being a mom. My problem is, my parents and his parents don’t want to be grandparents. I will be 30 this year, and they keep telling me I should wait until I’m 40 to have kids. I have endometriosis, and I know if I wait too long it will be even harder to get pregnant. On top of all the pressure our families are putting me under, I just found out my sister has been married almost a year and hasn’t told anyone. I don’t want to disappoint our families or force something on them they are not ready for. I’m not sure what to do now. I want my husband and me to be happy. Any advice would be appreciated. — STRESSED OUT IN OHIO

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Be nice when digging into chocolates

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

Dear Miss Manners • We are having a debate at work: Is it rude to eat from the second layer of chocolates before the first is all gone? Gentle Reader • This is an archaeological question, the answer to which will depend on the delicacy of the upper strata, the amount of efort required to excavate, and the urgency with which you need to decamp before local inhabitants or law enforcement — or the people behind you in line — become threatening. Miss Manners urges you to resist the temptation to dig if access to the second layer will require more than cursory adjusting of food destined for other people, and certainly if it may damage such food. Deftly and discreetly lifting out a plastic tray to make a selection may be acceptable; hovering over the chocolates, or turning them over for inspection, is not.

Dear Miss Manners • The venue for our son’s wedding will not hold all the guests that he, his fiance, and his parents want to invite. We believe the nuptial pair should have priority and choose the invitees. How should we parents communicate with friends and relatives we cannot invite: phone or write them to explain/apologize prior to the nuptials, inform them afterwards, or stay mum? Gentle Reader • Was the choice of venue beyond the control of yourself, your son, his fiance and the fiance’s parents? Miss Manners asks because, assuming someone in that group chose the location, the only possible explanation is that the venue was more important than the guests. This is not comforting to the person who was not invited. An apology would have the same problem, with the added benefit

that you might also find yourself blaming a current or future family member for the hurtful choice. Your newly expanded family may face thornier problems in the future, but solving this problem jointly is a good place to begin to act in concert. Invite the people whom the couple and immediate family jointly consider indispensable, ideally because they are your most intimate friends and family. You can then apologize to everyone else, using the excuse that the couple opted for a small, intimate ceremony. The reason, stated or implied, should be that the couple was being understandably romantic, not that they were counting the silverware.

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Addressing the pain of peripheral neuropathy Dear Dr. Roach • My feet hurt me so much that I no longer want to live. I am a 63-year-old white female. I have Type 2 diabetes, since 2014. My podiatrist says that I have plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis and foot neuropathy. I have all the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy and then some. My feet feel like I am walking on hot coals almost all the time. I would say there are only two days a month when my feet feel tolerable, and I can’t figure out why. My podiatrist can’t either. I have been taking Metanx four times a day and 400mg gabapentin three times a day. I cannot get any relief. Please help me! I am at my wits’ end, and the pain has driven me into a deep depression. Foot pain 24/7 has left me with no life. — K.J.

Answer • Any of the conditions you have can cause significant pain, and I can understand how having all of them can make life miserable. It can be diicult to separate out which of your conditions might be most responsible for the pain. As such, you may benefit from a pain-management specialist. For example, you might not be on enough gabapentin: 900 to 1,200 mg, three times daily, often is necessary. Other medications are used in combination, but require individual evaluation. Finally, depression with chronic pain is common, and treating your depression likely will help your overall view of life, and maybe your pain as well. Don’t despair; there is help available.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I’m a 35-year-old man, and I take 6-MP for Crohn’s disease. My dog had a skin infection with MRSA. Do I need to be worried or do something diferent? — P.G.

TINA’S GROOVE • By Rina Piccolo

Answer • Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterial species that is resistant to many common antibiotics. It used to be found mostly in hospitals, but has increasingly been prevalent in communities. It is not a surprise to me that it is found in house pets. MRSA is more difficult to treat than other bacterial infections; however, it is not necessarily more virulent than regular methicillinsensitive Staph (meaning, just because it is resistant to the antibiotic, it isn’t more likely to infect you or to cause severe disease). You don’t need to take any more precautions than are rational for any skin infection: Wash your hands thoroughly after touching an open wound, and clean and disinfect surfaces that have been exposed. 6-MP is a medicine that suppresses the immune system somewhat, so it is important for you to take precautions about any kind of infection, including MRSA.
