Something fishy

Nonprofit offers a fresh start for homeless veterans

Huge aquariums at St. Louis Children’s Hospital are a welcome distraction for its young patients

By MaUREEn STROdE • St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. JOHn • Judith Van Aman comes from a military family. One of her sisters was in the Navy, another in the Air Force. Her father was in the Air National Guard. For Van Aman, joining the Air Force was in the cards. “You put on a uniform, and it’s kind of meant to be,” Van Aman said. But Van Aman, 61, has been homeless on and off since she returned to the United States from service in Japan and England in the 1980s. Since 2015, she has lived in an apartment complex owned by Missouri Veterans Endeavor — a nonprofit organization that provides long-term housing to veterans and their families at an affordable price.

President Donald Trump said Sunday that a U.S. team was in North Korea to plan a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, raising expectations that the on-off-on meeting would indeed take place. The State Department said earlier that a team was in Panmunjom, which straddles the border inside the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, separating North and South Korea. One can cross the border simply by stepping across a painted line, but moving beyond several footsteps into the North at Panmunjom would be rare for U.S. officials.

JEFFERSOn CITy • Gov. Eric Greitens’ bid

to shrink government fell far short of the goals set by a panel he appointed last year. Under legislation heading toward the Republican’s desk, state lawmakers approved a plan to eliminate or merge 25 boards and commissions, resulting in 138 fewer appointments that Greitens would be responsible for filling. A special task force appointed by the governor, which spent six months last year studying the issue, had called for the reduction of 450 gubernatorial appointments.

Hanaway once had different view of talking with FBI TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Jefferson City office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in a nondescript three-story building just a couple of blocks from the state Capitol. There’s no big flashing sign outside, unlike the bright yellow ‘FBI’ lettering on the back of an agent’s windbreaker in a made-for-TV movie as the federal law enforcement officer announces his presence to the world. But most veterans of the Capitol political scene know where it is. That’s the way the FBI agents who operate there like it. Sometimes they wander the halls of the Capitol just so lawmakers and lobbyists see them around. They sit in hearings and have quiet chats in the stairwell, or at coffee shops on High Street. They get to know the various general counsels in governor’s offices, in the House and Senate and other statewide offices. It’s their job to know things. Sometimes they’re investigating. Other times, they’re just getting the lay of the land. That’s what makes Catherine Hanaway’s statement last week criticizing state Rep. Jay Barnes for daring to speak to the FBI so incomprehensible. Barnes is the Jefferson City Republican leading the House committee that is investigating the conduct and potential crimes of Gov. Eric Greitens. The hearings that Barnes, an attorney, is leading seem destined to lead to the first impeachment of a Missouri governor. Hanaway, who ran against Greitens in the 2016 primary, is now representing his campaign as well as his dark-money group, A New Missouri. Barnes has sued those groups in Cole County Circuit Court for failing to respond to his subpoenas seeking documents in testimony. In response, Hanaway went on offense last week, saying this: “Chairman Barnes revealed that he’s been speaking with the FBI about what he believes are the facts of this case well before his ‘fact-finding’ committee reached its conclusion,” Hanaway wrote in a statement. “And yet, Chairman Barnes — entrusted with the sacred responsibility of finding facts, not prosecuting a case — shared information with law enforcement before a full review of the matter.” Think for a moment about what that

recommendation, a spokeswoman for the chairman of that panel, Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, said he was pleased with the legislation. “He does, however, still believe more consolidation can be done with boards and commissions and duties combined,” said Kelli Jones. Greitens’ spokesman, Parker Briden, said the office would not comment on the specifics of the legislation until it is given a full review. But, he added, “We’re glad that the Legislature made progress on this important issue this year.” There are more than 200 boards and commissions in Missouri. Some ensure public safety and health. Others promote Missouri products or administer profes-

PEOPLE Living eulogies for McCain

The world of media and entertainment has rushed to find ways to celebrate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., whose brain cancer diagnosis came just 11 months ago. A memoir of McCain, “The Restless Wave,” hit stores several days ago; and a documentary, “John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls,” makes its debut Monday on HBO. Mark Salter, McCain’s longtime speechwriter and ghostwriter, wrote the memoir. “Bell” was produced and directed by six-time Emmy winner Peter Kunhardt along with Emmy winners George Kunhardt and Teddy Kunhardt. McCain was shown the documentary a few weeks ago as he was in Phoenix’s Mayo Clinic recovering from a procedure. “We wanted John to see this while he still could,” Peter Kunhardt said. Sting nabs degree from Brown • English musician Sting sang “My One and Only Love” at Brown University after he and his wife, Trudie Styler, accepted honorary degrees from the school on Sunday at its 250th commencement. Sting, born Gordon Sumner, founded the pioneering British rock band The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers in 1977. Sting also co-founded the Rainforest Fund. Nobel Prize-winning physicist J. Michael Kosterlitz was among other honorees.

THE JEFFERSON CITY NEWS-TRIBUNE VIA AP

Catherine Hanaway, an attorney for A New Missouri and Greitens for Missouri, presents information to Judge Jon Beetem during a hearing Wednesday in Cole County Circuit Court in Jefferson City.

means. Hanaway, a former speaker of the Missouri House and a former U.S. attorney — one who was previously involved in the conviction of a Missouri state senator — doesn’t want state representatives, or attorneys, to go to the FBI if they happen upon information that might be a crime. Barnes went to the FBI, he said in a hearing, because of former Greitens’ staffer Michael Hafner’s testimony that he believed the Greitens campaign might have been soliciting donations from foreign nationals, a potential federal crime. Hanaway calls such behavior outrageous. The FBI agents I know would beg to differ. On the very day Team Greitens was making Barnes their latest punching bag, I got a call from a lobbyist who spent part of the morning in the FBI offices in Jefferson City. This lobbyist was worried about some issues surrounding a piece of legislation. It had nothing to do with the entire Greitens saga. Well, it probably didn’t. But this lobbyist asked a lawyer what to do. The lawyer suggested the lobbyist call the FBI. That’s what happened. And something similar happens in Jefferson City and capital cities across the country every single day.

Occasionally the FBI agents make a big show of asking lawmakers questions about such issues, as they did last year when state employees were accused of spending taxpayer funds to support a company they were supposed to be regulating. Sometimes those questions lead to a grand jury, as they did eight years ago when there were accusations about legislative pay-to-play shenanigans. And other times, the agents just gather information and tuck it away for a rainy day. Hanaway, of course, knows this. When she was U.S. attorney, she met with Republicans in the Legislature and offered advice on what lawmakers should do if they thought they heard or saw something related to a potential crime. Sen. Ryan Silvey, R-Kansas City, remembers that meeting well. “She had everybody scared to death by the time she was done,” Silvey says. After Hanaway issued her blistering statement attacking Barnes last week, Silvey took to Twitter to chide the former U.S. attorney. “She told us if approached by (the) feds to share everything you know (because) obstruction was deadly serious,” Silvey wrote. “My how times have changed.” Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

sional certifications. As governor, Greitens has the responsibility of appointing people to boards that create regulations for clean water, interior designers, real estate agents and a host of other industries and professions. Greitens’ call for streamlining followed former Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision to cut more than 70 boards and commissions — and his reduction of the state’s workforce by more than 5,100 employees — during his eight-year tenure. An estimated 1,200 of the positions on the state’s boards are vacant because they were not filled by Nixon, a Democrat, or his predecessor, Republican Matt Blunt. According to the task force report, 5 percent of state panels don’t have a quorum, vacancies are common and more than 75 percent of the panels have members serving expired terms, which is al-

lowed under state law. Among the boards targeted for elimination or merger are the Unmarked Human Burial Consultation Committee, the Advisory Commission for Dental Hygienists and the Task Force on the Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Children. The duties of the boards will be shifted to other oversight commissions or be monitored by state agencies. Among the boards that were targeted by the panel that survived the legislative process were the Holocaust Education and Awareness Commission, the State Milk Board and the Hispanic Business, Trade and Culture Commission. The legislation is Senate Bill 843. Kurt Erickson • 573-556-6181 @KurtEricksonPD on Twitter kerickson@post-dispatch.com

LETTER FROM WASHINGTON

The ‘great re-awakenings’ that shape 2018 politics CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WA S H I N G T O N • Ad-

dressing Naval Academy graduates Friday, President Donald Trump declared that America this Memorial Day weekend is in a “great re-awakening of the American spirit.” “We’re respected again, I can tell you that,” Trump told a sea of white-uniformed grads, adding that “America is the greatest fighting force for peace, justice and freedom in the history of the world.” He decried “cynics and critics who try to tear down America,” and said they’ve been proven wrong by a revitalized economy and a freshly feared military. He pointed to military budgets that have broken the $700 billion ceiling, omitting the fact that this spending corresponds with historically high deficits. “We have rediscovered our dignity, regained our stride and we are proud again,” the president said. Before embarking on a helicopter trip to the academy, Trump had expressed optimism that a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which Trump abruptly canceled Thursday night, could be back on after the North Koreans issued a conciliatory statement expressing a willingness to talk. His son, Donald Jr., depicted this back-and-forth as his father at his best negotiating tendencies, tweeting “The Art of the Deal, Baby!” Simultaneously, a few hours’ drive up holidayweekend clogged I-95, the theater of a different re-awakening was playing out. Once seemingly untouchable, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was hauled into court to face rape charges. The first face on the wanted posters of the #metoo movement was finally facing his day in court. His lawyer, asserting that Weinstein did not invent the “Hollywood casting couch,” said he’d fight the charges and depicted them criminalizing consensual sex. For all those who decry the “liberal mainstream media” and “liberal Hollywood elite,” this moment was a reminder that reporting of the New York Times and other long-established media forced the sordid and allegedly criminal actions of Weinstein and other alleged serial harassers and assaulters into the sunlight. But that is an aside to another, greater point: That another “great awakening” in politics has been surely and steadily playing out in the ballot box this year, and that it may be bad news for Trump’s Republican Party. This trend also leaves Missourians with a big “what if” — as in, what if Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, had not foregone an expected challenge of Sen. C.laire McCaskill, D-Mo., leaving McCaskill to face any one of several male Republicans in the fall. As the Cook Political Report’s congressional politics analyst Dave Wasserman put it this week: “The drive to elect women is defining 2018’s Democratic primaries.” Bottom line: Women, many of them driven to run in reaction to Trump’s actions toward women and energized the women’s march days after Trump’s 2017 inauguration, are running — and winning — in unprecedented numbers so far this year. As Wasserman points out: “There have been 65 contests featuring at least one man, one woman and no incumbent on a Democratic primary ballot. Women have defeated men in 45 of those 65 races, and women were the top votegetters in an additional two Georgia races headed to runoffs. Men defeated women in just 18 cases.” He pointed out that in Illinois’ 14th congressional district, former nurse Lauren Underwood got 57 per-

cratic primary is one thing, winning a general election another. A woman won an upset in Nebraska’s second congressional district by defeating a former male Democratic congressman. But in doing so, she may have come through that process as weaker in a general election. But the overall trend is undeniable. And after many previous elections that were determined to be the “year of the woman,” when female U.S. senators broke from a handful into

cent of the vote in a Democratic primary against six Republican men. 2018, Wasserman said, is shaping up as the “year of the angry, college-educated female.” A poll last month by NBC and the Wall Street Journal found Trump’s approval among this sector of the electorate at just 27 percent, far below his overall ratings, which have hovered in the mid-40s. Not all of this means that women will be elected to Congress in droves in November. Winning a Demo-

double digits and to the current 21, 2018 is shaping up as a year that will further push that trend. Will it make a difference that McCaskill, a wellknown and seasoned Missouri politician, is running against a man? Will the #metoo movement drive voters to her side, or will it have no effect? How different the ShowMe state would have been if it were two powerful women — McCaskill and Wagner — running in one of the most pivotal Senate races in the country.

ASK THE ROAD CREW

ALONG FOR THE RIDE

Chat with Andrew Gates of the Missouri Department of Transportation, Jamie Wilson of the St. Louis Streets Department and David Wrone of the St. Louis County Department of Transportation Wednesdays at 1 p.m. at stltoday.com/chat. Here is an edited excerpt from recent chats: Carol: When will they fix the exit from southbound Interstate 270 onto westbound Interstate 70? It is so rough, you about lose your wheels. Also, when will they clean up the side of the road from eastbound I-70 onto northbound I-270? This looks like a dump. Gates: We have a project to replace that ramp next year; in the meantime, I have asked our maintenance team to go out and patch any potholes that may be out there. As far as roadway cleanup, our maintenance team is out cleaning roadways almost every day — with more than 6,000 miles of shoulder in the greater St. Louis area, they hit every interstate about once a month — I have passed your concerns along for them to check out. love2drive: As part of the Great Streets initiative, decorative lights were installed along Manchester. Several months ago, they were removed and replaced with orange cones. Will they ever come back? Gates: The municipalities are responsible for maintaining the lights, and they removed them after several were blown down in high winds. The municipalities are working with the lighting manufacturer to get new lights, but we don’t have any information on when those new lights will be installed. City Resident: At the corner of Nottingham and Donovan avenues, in the pedestrian crosswalk, there is a large dip for a water line repair some time ago. It qualifies as a pothole now. Can this be filled in with rock and then paved over? Wilson: It is on our patch list.

MODriver: What are the plans to resurface Big Bend Boulevard between Manchester Avenue and I-64? The road surface is terrible along the whole stretch and getting worse by the week. Wrone: We have an improvement project scheduled for Big Bend, from Manchester north to Delmar Boulevard. Work is expected to begin this fall, and will be complete in the fall of 2019. Once the job is finished, Manchester will have new pavement between Manchester and Delmar, new sidewalks (where needed) and many dozens of new wheelchair accessible ramps. olive street bumps: I know that this is Missouri American Water’s problem, and not MoDOT’s, but can anything be done about the pavement mess on eastbound Olive Boulevard at Warson Road? There was a massive water main break here in January, and the patches put down are sinking badly. Cars in the left-hand through lane of eastbound Olive now slow down before the intersection to go gently over the sunken patches. Can these be filled temporarily like potholes? Can the water company be forced to fix the huge mess they made all along Olive between 270 and 170? Gates: I have passed your question along to our team that works with the utilities to see if the utilities have any plans to make any permanent repairs. Typically, it takes the utility companies a bit of time to award the contract for the permanent repairs (after they ensure that the fix they made is working). In addition, we did have a rather chilly April (which is not terribly conducive to placing concrete). If I hear anything back from the team, I will share it here.

Tower Grove Park bicycle, pedestrian access tweaked MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Improving pedestrian and bicycle access to Tower Grove Park, St. Louis’ second-largest, is the focus of a $1.2 million project expected to get underway about a year from now. The work aims at making it more safe to cross the four major thoroughfares bordering the South Side mainstay: Kingshighway, Arsenal Street, South Grand Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue. A preliminary design from the H.R. Green consulting firm proposes improvements to 19 of 26 intersections around the park, each leading to sidewalks and paths. Among other things, the design calls for creating bumpouts, which shorten crossing distances by extending sidewalks past the curb at crosswalks. Bus stops will be revamped and relocated. And more crosswalks are to be painted with wide stripes to increase visibility, such as the connections across Arsenal and Magnolia to the park’s main north-south road, Center Cross Drive. There also will be new and reconstructed wheelchair ramps and better walk-light signals which display the number of seconds remaining for pedestrians and bicyclists to get across a street. “We get 2.5 million visitors a year; they’re coming in a multiple of ways besides just cars,” said Bill Reininger, the park’s executive director. Many park users come from

nearby residential neighborhoods, he added. Before the work begins next spring, the plan will be tweaked to reflect feedback gathered at an “open house” public session and online. The work is being funded by a $944,000 federal grant and $240,000 in city money.

NEW SNAGS SOON ON I-270, I-70

Drivers on already busy Interstate 270 in northwest St. Louis County should get ready for some extra traffic snags between I-70 and Dorsett Road. From June 9 through late July, there will be a series of lane closures, lane switches and a ramp shutdown to accommodate the ongoing construction on a new 270 bridge over Fee Fee Creek and nearby railroad tracks. The Missouri Department of Transportation warns that the work could result in traffic delays of up to 30 minutes, especially during rush-hour periods. The snags will begin with the reduction of southbound 270 from five lanes to three lanes. At other times during the work period, there will be a similar shrinkage of northbound lanes. And at one point there will be a two-week shutdown of the ramp from northbound 270 to Dorsett. Meanwhile, on June 11, another construction-related snag will develop at 70 and Lucas and Hunt Road. MoDOT said work crews on that day will close the exit ramp from westbound 70 to Lucas and Hunt for seven weeks. Closing permanently will be the right-lane exit ramp from northbound Lucas and Hunt to westbound 70. Instead the exit will be made from the left lane.

MCKINLEY BRIDGE CLOSURE

The lone eastbound lane of the McKinley Bridge will be closed Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The closure on the bridge, connecting St. Louis to Venice over the Mississippi River, is needed to complete electrical repairs and guardrail work, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.

OPEN STREETS EVENT RETURNS SATURDAY

St. Louis’ Open Streets event returns Saturday, as an eight-block stretch of Compton Avenue on the city’s South Side is closed off to cars to create a public plaza of sorts for a few hours with various activities. Among them: exercise stations of various types, arts and crafts, a bike tour, dancing, sports and food. The event, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. between Cherokee and Meramec streets in the Dutchtown area, also will offer free blood pressure and dental screening and other health tests. Pedestrian safety also will be promoted. Alderman Cara Spencer, in whose 20th Ward the event is situated, said the event is being held in conjunction with the seasonal opening of the Marquette Park swimming pool. The idea, she said, is “to reenvision the street as something for other than just vehicular traffic.” Previous Open Streets events in the city were held several years ago in other neighborhoods.

OPERA REVIEW

‘Regina’ at Opera Theatre of St. Louis is gripping theater BY SARAH BRYAN MILLER • St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Greg Schneiderhahn, from Aqua-World, cleans the largest aquarium at St. Louis Children’s Hospital on May 17. The 1,047-gallon tank is in the cafeteria. The hospital has 10 tanks dotted throughout its many floors.

Fish tanks need a lot of work, are popular attractions AQUARIUMS • FROM A1

like a simple distraction. Caring for the hospital’s fish tanks requires about 20 man-hours and some 160 new gallons of water every week. In total, the aquariums at the hospital have about 200 fish in some 4,499 gallons of water. They go through about 1.5 tons of salt in a year. But hospital staff say the impact of the aquariums is worth the expense. Though it’s not been studied extensively, some research shows aquariums reduce stress among patients. And it’s clear by little handprints — and sometimes face marks — imprinted on the glass, many kids at Children’s appreciate the tanks. “When kids come into a hospital, you need a distraction,” said John Burns, head of hospital facilities. “Some of them are facing some very serious, scary stuff. So if we can take their mind off that for a few minutes, we’re going to do it.”

THE FISH BROTHERS

So who takes care of all these children-friendly fish? Meet the Schneiderhahn brothers. Michael and Greg Schneiderhahn run Aqua-World, an aquarium maintenance and retail business started by their father, John Schneiderhahn, 47 years ago. The company has more than 100 contracts to maintain tanks in greater St. Louis, but St. Louis Chil-

dren’s Hospital is by far its largest account. In order to avoid crowded times at the hospital the Schneiderhahn brothers and others on their team wake up at 3:30 a.m. to get to the hospital when it’s slower. They come about twice a week. They bring large containers filled with 160 gallons of both saltwater and freshwater to replace water that evaporates from the tanks. They also need to scrape algae, feed the fish with frozen brine shrimp, refill automatic feeders and add chemicals to help balance the ecosystem in the tanks. They also wash the glass using magnets— they throw one magnetic brush in the water and wipe the outside of the glass with a cloth with the opposite charge. The simple trick allows them to wash both sides of the tanks at once. They sometimes, of course, also need to add fish to keep the tanks running. They get the fish from vendors around the world, including in the Philippines and Indonesia. On a recent afternoon, Michael Schneiderhahn added a few frontosa cichlids to the tank, first letting them float in the water inside bags for about 40 minutes to allow them to slowly adjust to the temperature. “If you just put them right in there, it would be like teleporting to Antarctica for them,” said Michael Schneiderhahn. “You need to ease them in.” By far the hardest challenge of the tanks, the brothers say, is finding

the balance of the right chemicals, feed and fish to put together so that they stay healthy and beautiful for patients to watch. The fish he added to the tank looked small with gray-and-black stripes, but over about three years will turn bright blue, grow to the size of dinner plates and get bumps above their faces. “It’s like a garden,” said Schneiderhahn. “You create a habitat and watch it grow.” The first fish tank at St. Louis Children’s was added near the cafeteria in the hospital in the late 1980s, according to Burns, with the facilities team. “It was so popular they just kept adding them,” he said. Today they are on most floors of the hospital, including four freshwater and six saltwater tanks. Hospital employee Laurie Doyle helps admit patients in the waiting room of the neurosurgery department, which has a tank filled with bright, colorful fish. Doyle even named one of the goby fish “Grandpa,” because she thinks the animal looks like an old man. “I love the fish,” she said. “We make it a point to come in from the hall all the time to see them. They all want to find Nemo.” Erin Heffernan • 314-340-8145 @erinheff on Twitter eheffernan@post-dispatch.com

Is Marc Blitzstein’s “Regina,” which opened Saturday night at Opera Theatre of St. Louis, an opera or musical theater? It has elements of both, with dialogue that’s frequently spoken over music and arias that demand serious voices and real singing. Whichever it is, it’s a gripping music drama in the hands of a superb cast and production team. Set in small-town Alabama in 1900, it’s based on Lillian Hellman’s 1939 play “The Little Foxes.” There is nothing remotely amiable about Regina Giddens: She’s cold, calculating and capable of doing whatever it takes to get whatever she wants — and her wants are boundless. Her brothers, Ben and Oscar Hubbard, whose specialties are sharp dealing and prevarication, commit the signal error of underestimating her. In the title role, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham (who usually portrays amiable characters) is an imperious force of nature. It’s a demanding role, with an unusually wide vocal range to go with its daunting dramatic requirements; she nailed it in every respect, singing powerfully with acting to match. The rest of the cast, headed by three other distinguished artists, was equally remarkable. Soprano Susanna Phillips was touching as Birdie, the musicloving daughter of Southern aristocracy whom Oscar married so that Ben could get her family plantation, Lionnet; her third-act aria was heartbreaking. Bass-baritone James Morris, making his OTSL debut, gave a subtle performance as Ben, who maintains an ironic sense of humor and spins ways to put the blame on others. As the less-subtle Oscar, baritone Ron Raines was a well-matched third sibling. Soprano Monica Dewey easily held her own in this distinguished company as Alexandra, “Zan,” Regina’s daughter, singing beautifully and maturing as we watched. As her father, the ailing Horace Giddens, bass-baritone Kristopher Imiter brought a weary dignity to his role. Addie, the Giddens family housekeeper and a beacon of decency, was sympathetically portrayed by mezzo-soprano Melody Wilson; tenor Michael Day was appropriately slimy as the young and amoral Leo Hubbard. Chaz-men Williams-Ali shone in the (mostly off-stage) role of Jazz; Robert Stahley created a solid character as William Marshall, the businessman from Chicago. There were no weak links in the large cast; Cary John Franklin’s chorus sang (and danced Sean Curran’s choreography) well. In the pit, music director emeritus Stephen Lord made an excellent case for the score, with the help of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Artistic director James Robinson brought out the family’s fraught dynamics effectively in ways both large and subtle; having Addie depart with Alexandra at the end was a nice touch. Allen Moyer’s set, dominated by a giant painting of Lionnet and a long staircase, was marred by walls of mottled gray, like the inside of a bunker. James Schuette’s handsome costumes were true to the period. Although the singing is unamplified, having music under much of the dialogue necessitated miking it. There was a problem with the sound system on Saturday night, which resulted in a lack of balance at times.

Storm forces early end to Schlafly’s art festival

Sunday’s show in Maplewood was canceled after storm tore through the area

LAURIE SKRIVAN • lskrivan@post-dispatch.com

“This was the first time I was accepted to this show so I was excited. I just hope some of my pieces can be saved,” said artisan Lori Whitecraft of Flair City Supply Co., who cleans up the aftermath of her art and tent at the Art Outside festival on Sunday in Maplewood. Early morning storms damaged tents and artworks canceling the festival. BY DENISE HOLLINSHED St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Artist tents were no match for the early morning storms that rolled through St. Louis, doing enough damage in Maplewood that the third and final day of Schlafly’s Art Outside Festival had to be called off. The storm hit between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. and mangled tents, damaged artwork and led James Pendegraft, CEO at Schlafly’s, to

cancel Sunday’s show at the Bottleworks in Maplewood. “It was a very intense storm that rolled through ... destroying artists’ tents along with their works of art,” he said. Organizers canceled the festival that has been around since 2004 and hosted by Schlafly Bottleworks at 7260 Southwest Avenue. The festival draws artists from a 100-mile radius. Pendegraft said at least 80 percent of the

tents were damaged and about half had significant damage. Artists lost thousands of dollars in revenue from artwork and sales. “A number of tents were completely wiped out,” said Pendegraft. A gofundme campaign has been established to help the artists cover their losses. By late Sunday afternoon, Ameren Missouri was reporting about 1,700 people without power in St. Louis County and

another 83 in St. Louis city. Sunday evening is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 94. The heat index was as high as 101 with light west winds.There’s a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 8 p.m. Sunday night will be mostly clear with a low around 72. Memorial Day is expected to be dry with temperatures in the low 90s, a tad bit cooler than Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. The high Mon-

day is expected to be near 94 degrees. The evening is expected to be clear with a low around 71 with east wind between 5 to 7 mph. There is a 30 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms after 1 a.m. Tuesday. The day is expected to be partly sunny, with a high near 89.

Nonprofit group’s goal is to help veterans become as independent as possible their time serving in the military, Wallace said. From there, staff members create action plans that are designed to help each veteran become as independent as possible. About 70 percent of the veterans housed by Missouri Veterans Endeavor have issues with substance abuse, Wallace said. “We need to help them maintain their sobriety and do whatever is needed,” Wallace said. This includes weekly sobriety support meetings and taking veterans to outside meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

VETERANS • FROM A1

Since its inception in 2011, Missouri Veterans Endeavor — previously known as U.S. Vets St. Louis — has supported more than 520 veterans, according to its website. In 2017, there were 169 homeless veterans in St. Louis city, according to St. Louis Continuum of Care’s Point-in-Time count. That’s about 13 percent of the 1,336 homeless people counted in 2017. Yet Bill Wallace, president and executive director of Missouri Veterans Endeavor, thinks the number of homeless veterans in the St. Louis area may be as high as 400. Missouri Veterans Endeavor is there to help some of them, like Van Aman. At the Missouri Veterans Endeavor apartment complex in St. John, veterans have a roof over their heads, a community of others who have lived similar experiences, and constant support from a seven-person staff.

‘A VETERAN COMMUNITY’

The staff at Missouri Veterans Endeavor runs the largest longterm supportive housing complex for homeless veterans in the St. Louis area, according to Wallace. The complex, near Natural Bridge Road, can house a combination of 57 veterans and their family members in its 19 apartments. Currently, Missouri Veterans Endeavor is housing about 32 veterans and 14 of their family members, Wallace said, all of whom live in walking distance to one another. “What I think really makes us very unique is the fact that we truly are a veteran community,” Wallace said. “They have the peer support.” But this organization doesn’t just provide housing. Veterans also receive services including individual, group, couples and family therapy; case management; transportation for veterans and their families; emergency financial assistance; and financial assistance for the cost of child care, according to the organization.

Christine Cronin, vice president and clinical director of Missouri Veterans Endeavor, talks with Bob Wunderlick, a resident of the organization’s apartments on Engler Park Court in St. John on Friday. Vets who are housed there also have access to a host of services and mentoring aimed at restoring their independence. Judy Van Aman, 61, an Air Force veteran, sits at a picnic table at the Missouri Veterans Endeavor apartments on Engler Park Court in St. John on Friday. Missouri Veterans Endeavor provides housing and other services. Van Aman says the organization has given her stability.

souri Veterans Endeavor is mentored by a staff member, said Christine Cronin, vice president and clinical director for Missouri Veterans Endeavor. “We do an initial assessment where we figure out what caused

them to become homeless and what they can work on while they’re here to become independent,” Cronin said. “A lot of the time, it’s financial management, credit scores, legal issues, family support, support in the com-

munity. And for some, it’s mental health.” Veterans are assessed based on seven different areas: their housing, finances, patterns of substance abuse, employment, legal issues, their support systems and

At one point, Van Aman was living at a VA facility for homeless veterans. She was there for five months. After that, she was living in a hotel. “My money was running out,” Van Aman said. She was struggling with alcohol abuse and suicidal thoughts; she used to say she would take her own life when she turned 40. But her two children, she said, are the reason she is still here today. “I never got help for (my mental illness) until my daughter demanded it,” she said. That was in 2007. For a time, she worked for the VA helping homeless vets, and later went to Texas for a program to treat posttraumatic stress disorder. She returned and became homeless again. In 2015, she ended up at Missouri Veterans Endeavor, where she has received numerous services and a support system that has allowed her to heal from past trauma. “It’s been difficult, because sometimes, you get too depressed,” Van Aman said. “But you can’t give up.” Yet she won’t be at Missouri Veterans Endeavor for much longer; she and her roommate are planning on moving out together, she said. But she can’t help but feel grateful for the time she has spent there. “This place has been a godsend.”

U.S., France, Germany honor doughboys

High-ranking military officials from the U.S., France and Germany took part Sunday in Memorial Day ceremonies at an American cemetery in northern France to mark the centennial of the battle of Belleau Wood, a turning point in World War I and a key moment in Marine Corps history. The ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in the village of Belleau included speeches by military officials, including Gen. Robert Neller, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps; prayers; wreath laying; reading of poems; and the national anthems of the three countries. More than 5,000 attended the event celebrating the battle considered the first major engagement of U.S. troops in the war.

Then-fighter pilot Borling was shot down during the Vietnam War and spent several years as a POW. Logan was a Civil War general in the Union Army and founder of Decoration Day, which later became known as Memorial Day.

BY MICHELE MUNZ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

About 5,000 Boy Scouts solemnly marched through Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery on Sunday and filled a large grassy circle around a towering flagpole near the center of the 331 acres of graves. Temperatures soared into the 90s as they stood quietly under the glaring sun listening to the bagpipes, flag ceremonies and speeches. They waited patiently before their instructions to disperse and place flags at more than 150,000 graves. The sight made him proud, said an older Scout, Sam Purvines, who has taken part in the annual ceremony for 10 years. “This is what Scouting represents,” he said before leading the crowd in prayer under the flagpole. The Boy Scouts of America is in its 69th year of organizing the annual Memorial Day Good Turn ceremony, one of the longest-running Memorial Day events for the Scouts. Among the speakers was Jim Turley, the retired Ernst & Young CEO who just last week became national chairman of the Boy Scouts of America after serving as the presi-

dent of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. “The country needs us today more than she has ever needed us before,” Turley said, to continue to build great leaders with strong character and values. The ceremony made him think of the Boy Scout oath to do his duty to God and country. “I can’t think of a better service project that is a better reflection of that than this event today,” Turley said. Maj. Thomas Bergman told the crowd that an average of 12 burials with full military honors take place daily at the cemetery, the fifth-biggest national cemetery where veterans, spouses and eligible dependents are buried. The first burial dates to 1827. Bergman helps coordinate the uniformed honor services as part of the Missouri Military Funeral Honors Program. He also served in the National Guard and Army Reserve and was deployed to Panama, Iraq and Bosnia. “It’s kind of an emotional day,” Bergman said before pausing and choking back tears. “There’s a commander killed in Iraq buried here, up there over my left shoulder.”

His name was Col. Stephen K. Scott, and Bergman requested that whoever places a flag on his tombstone reflect about his friend. The Scouts were instructed to continue their reverence as they were given bundles of flags to decorate graves. Owen Mueller, 9, and his brother Eli, 7, were careful to place each flag 12 inches from the face of each headstone among the rows. “I wanted them to experience this,” said their mom, Cynthia Mueller, 38, of south St. Louis County. Their family has a cousin in the military and relatives buried at Jefferson Barracks, she said. “We talk about service and sacrifice a lot. I thought it would be good for them to have a visual of what it means and what their family members have done.” Logan Higgins, 10, from Pack 825 in Arnold, wiped sweat from his forehead. “I like this because I can pay my respect for all the people who died for our country. I just want to honor them for what they did.” Michele Munz • 314-340-8263 @michelemunz on Twitter mmunz@post-dispatch.com

‘Forgotten battle’ keeps grip on memories • The Battle of Attu, fought 75 years ago this month on Attu Island in Alaska’s Aleutian chain, was the only WWII battle fought on North American soil. The 19-day campaign is known as World War II’s forgotten battle, but survivors are unable to forget. Allan Seroll, 102, of Massachusetts, who worked in communications including Morse code for the Army Signal Corps, still carries the burden of the Battle of Attu. “I wake up in the middle of the night, and I can’t go back to sleep,” Seroll said. “That’s what this has done to me. That’s how much it affected me and still does.” The battle was one of the deadliest in the Pacific in terms of the percentage of troops killed. Flag gardens honor service members who died in action • Displays of massed flags honoring service members who have died defending the nation have sprung up across the country this weekend. The flag gardens, as they are known, can be seen in Texas, Louisiana, Ohio and New York, all started by area residents inspired by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund tribute established in 2010. The tribute involving tens of thousands of U.S. flags first appeared on Boston Common for Memorial Day a decade ago. The concept has even spread to Canada, where thousands of Canadian flags are planted in Toronto on Remembrance Day in November, when Canada honors its military members who have died in the line of duty. Book focuses on Tomb of Unknown Soldier • A new book tells the story of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier through the experiences of the eight World War I heroes chosen to bring him home. Military historian Patrick K. O’Donnell’s “The Unknowns” details those eight Americans’ experiences as they fought in France. Two years after the war ended in November 1918, Britain and France established unknown soldier tombs. The U.S. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was dedicated at Arlington National cemetery on Nov. 11, 1921. From news services

‘Getting away with murder’ Trump became an accessory by caving to drug industry on price controls.

W

ith the usual ballyhoo, the White House said on May 11 that President Donald Trump would announce his long-delayed plans to reduce the costs of prescription drugs. When Trump began speaking at 2:08 p.m., stock prices on Standard & Poor’s pharmaceutical sector dropped. By the time he finished speaking, the sector was soaring. Big Pharma was very happy with Trump’s speech. It contained nothing that will threaten its enormous profits nor anything that will slow down relentless price increases. As president-elect, Trump accused drug companies of “getting away with murder.” As president, Trump has become an accessory to that murder. It was yet another broken populist campaign promise, joining “great health care,” putting coal miners back to work, a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan and more. Trump has kept his promise to crack down on immigrants and move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, but his economic populism has proved to be a mirage. Of course that doesn’t mean he won’t try to fool people into thinking otherwise: “Everyone involved in the broken system — the drugmakers, insurance companies, distributors, pharmacy benefit managers and many others — contribute to the problem,” Trump said.“Government has also been part of the problem because previous leaders turned a blind eye to this incredible abuse.” All of that is true, but the one key to dealing with the problem is to recognize that everything stems from the upfront price that drugmakers charge and that there’s no way to rein them in. Medicare accounts for more than a third of the $360 billion spent on prescription drugs each year. But when Congress passed the Part D drug benefit in 2003, Big Pharma lobbyists wanted Medicare treated like any other customer. Congress caved. The Department of

ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Donald Trump speaks last week about prescription drug prices at the White House.

Veterans Affairs was allowed to negotiate prices, but not Medicare. As a result, the VA spends 80 percent less for the same drugs. Trump knows that.“We’re the largest buyer of drugs in the world, and yet we don’t bid properly,” he said shortly before his inauguration. Since then he’s been captured by the same lobbyists that he previously scorned. Nor will he allow U.S. citizens to buy drugs from Canada, where they are often 75 percent cheaper. Trump said he’d negotiate with other countries to make them pay more to take some of the burden off the U.S., thereby getting the solution 180 degrees wrong. Trump chose to blame the “middlemen,” including pharmacy benefits managers like Express Scripts of St. Louis. How worried are investors that Trump will take serious action? Express Scripts stock has been on a steady, even steep rise since Trump’s announcement. There’s only one way to fix this problem: Use the government’s buying clout to bring down prices. Eventually economics will force Congress and the president to do this. It just won’t be this president and this Congress.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Every job, including the NFL, has guidelines for employees I’m not sure what NFL players are so upset about (“Stand or stay inside: NFL takes on anthem protesters,” May 24). If anybody, anywhere in the real world obtains a job with any company, he or she is given access to an employee handbook. It has the guidelines and policies of the company — as to being on time, when to leave, how to dress and appropriate behavior in and out of the workplace. And in that handbook is also a type of clause that if employees violate, do not comply or refuse to comply with those regulations, that could be grounds for dismissal. Employees are considered a representative of that company, and it could reflect badly on that organization. Agreeing to keep within those guidelines and policies is usually the tradeoff for a nice salary and benefit package. So, if those players don’t wish to comply (at least they’ve been given a choice of behavior), then they are free to leave and try to get some other job where they think nobody will tell them how to act. Diana Renstrom • Martinsburg, Mo.

Brave men and women gave all for our country President John F. Kennedy once said: “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” The brave and good men and women who paid the ultimate price for America did indeed honor that great patriotic statement. Great presidents such as Kennedy always put America’s interests before their own interests. I am 78 years old. I have seen both great and bad presidents in my lifetime. The common thread to greatness was always putting America’s interests above their own private interests. “Ask what you can do for your country”: The brave men and women who died for America asked and did it. Dick Reeves • Kirkwood

Don’t give positive or even neutral descriptions of shooters Regarding “Call Texas school shooter a ‘victim,’ father says” (May 23): A quote in this headline calling him a victim defames the real victims: the children who were murdered by him. News organizations want to know how these situations can be stopped. One thing that could be done would be for news reports to quit giving positive or even neutral descriptions of these murderers. Headlines and articles should describe them as cowards and murderers who kill innocent, unarmed, helpless children. For example: “Coward kills innocent children.” “Murderer kills helpless, cornered concert-goers in Las Vegas.” “Insane man murders 6-year-old children in their first-grade classroom.” They are not shooters any more than a person who kills a penned-up animal is a big game hunter. When the name has to be used in the small print of the article, it should read coward John Doe or murderer John Doe. Emphasize the disgrace they have brought on their names and their families. William J. Hunt • St. Louis County

Guns do not belong in the schools Another horrible school shooting with more deaths — both teachers and stu-

dents. A terrible loss, we say, and we shake our heads in sorrow and distress. Yet, no action is taken because we sincerely believe the issues are too big — our right to bear guns or limitations on that gun ownership. Set aside, for a minute, the bigger issues: Is it a mental health issue, is it a gun rights issue, is it a matter of arming adults in schools? Those are questions we can spend years debating, while we do nothing. The thing we have control of is that guns do not belong in schools. Students do not have the right to bring a gun into a school and kill people. Some 17-year-olds make bad decisions. We as the adults have to be sure life is not lost because of those bad decisions. Demand your school district has a plan in place to keep the guns out of schools. No excuses about there not being enough money for security, or the school being too big, or a shooting won’t happen in our community. We should be standing guard to go through each jacket, backpack, lunch box. Drastic action yes, but consider what is a stake: the lives and mental well-being of our youth. We are on borrowed time. Don’t wait for the next headline of a school shooting in our backyard to take action. Protect the lives and mental well-being of our students. We are caring, innovative, responsible people. Yet, we become overwhelmed into non-action. Address one issue at a time — the one we can address now: Keep guns out of schools. Joyce DeNeal • St. Louis

Concordance should have done more to discipline ex-convict In the article “Volunteer’s death rocks program for ex-cons” (May 20), it’s interesting to me that the Concordance Academy of Leadership states that it “would have prohibited her (Christine Floss’) participation on a support team had we known of her relapse,” but it didn’t discipline Dearborn D. Hynes for serious and multiple parole violations. Concordance Academy allowed him to stay in the program and be honored at a recognition ceremony in February. All he did was stay out of prison without being rehabilitated. Joseph E. Corrigan • University City

SLU is courageous to cancel circus St. Louis University and President Fred Pestello deserve great admiration for their courageous decision to cancel the Garden Brothers Circus scheduled for next month at Chaifetz Arena. After SLU learned of this circus having a history of working with abusive animal exhibitors, it decided to cancel the event. If Garden Brothers wants to keep attracting audiences, it should stop dragging intelligent, sensitive creatures such as elephants from city to city in cages or trailers, forcing them to do confusing or painful tricks under the threat of punishment. These unnatural behaviors are foreign to these wild creatures, and they live a life tantamount to a prison sentence. It would have been easy for St. Louis University to look the other way. Instead, it is providing exemplary leadership in taking a stance to end these types of traveling animal circus events. Steve Disch • Des Peres Read more letters online at STLtoday.com/letters

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Education is key to a successful society “I want to educate people while they are young so that they can grow up to be more reasonable persons.” This was Jack Macleod’s answer when asked what he was doing to move forward following the deadly shooting at his Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Feb. 14. Macleod’s words pointed out to me one of the essentials necessary to follow if we seriously want to reduce school shootings. He was being interviewed last week on NPR’s “1A” hosted by Joshua Johnson. To me, Macleod’s words resonate because he pointed out the absolute necessity of properly educating our youth — all of them — so that they can use their minds and learned truths to mature into reasonable adults. Macleod says in a mere 20 words what has been said in tomes of educational literature that we will never read: Education for all the people is the basic element required for good communication of ideas, and the essential bonding of a successful society. Our America today is split, divided, selfish, impatient, greedy, bigoted and violent besides being ignorant. I believe this is because we as a society have lost our ability to think for ourselves, to recognize the difference between what is true and what is propaganda, and our adolescent adoration of wealth as the ultimate sign of success. If we started today to properly educate all of our young ones, it would still take at least a generation to show positive lasting results in America. Should we even bother to try? Jim Mittino • St. Louis

Hold gun owners responsible when they don’t take care Concerning the school shooting in Texas (editorial “Answers without solutions,” May 22), if it is true that the 17-year-old who did the shooting was using his father’s guns, why doesn’t his father bear some responsibility for not keeping his guns out of his son’s hands? And the article “Belleville high Sanat Fe, Texas shooter schools close Dimitrios Pagurtzis after perceived gun threat” (May 24) says: “Police say the man was suicidal and had taken his mother’s handgun. The mother told police that her son had left home in the 3300 block of West A Street ‘due to relationship problems with his girlfriend.’ After he left, the mother discovered her handgun was missing.” Perhaps if the owners of guns are held responsible for not keeping their guns out of the hands of someone who wants to use the guns to harm others, we will begin to see these shootings stop. Linda Caravelli • Florissant

Rampell is wrong: Welfare program needs to be fixed Regarding Catherine Rampell’s column “Congress takes food from 2 million poor people — and doesn’t even save money” (May 22):

I grew up in a rural area of Missouri where everyone was “poor.” There were a lot of people in that area who were reaping the rewards of the government’s handouts. This column is unjustifiable, and there are zero facts backing up what she is trying to say to readers. Using the phrase “deadbeat dads” is nothing but ignorant, considering the number of fathers who are raising their children in this country because the mother has succumbed to heroin or alcoholism. Men are doing their part and not getting recognized for it. That cliché is played out, and this writer obviously has limited experience about how that part of life actually works. Food stamps are taken advantage of, and somebody should have tried to reform it a long time ago. I have seen first-hand the lines at county buildings of women and men in their 20s and 30s, hauling their five or six children with them, waiting for their handouts instead of working or keeping their kids in school. Their salon-grade nails are gleaming and hair is perfect while they talk on their cell phones. Until a person has lived this life, or lives among the freeloaders, nothing should be suggested or implied that poor people are having food taken away from them or that they will starve. I might not be a President Donald Trump supporter, but there are some things that he is attempting to fix that truly do need to be fixed. The welfare program is one of them. Melanie McMahill • Clayton

Legislature should address full problem of surprise billing The passing of SB 982 on the last day of the Missouri legislative session is one small step for patients, but one giant leap for the Legislature. Protecting people from surprise medical bills is a bipartisan, common-sense issue that should have an easy time passing, yet anything is difficult when the interests of patients, providers and insurance companies all are taken into consideration. On May 18, the patients were put first. While I remain thankful to Sen. Paul Wieland, R-Imperial, and all the legislators who worked to get this legislation passed, I am left remembering all the stories of Missourians who have received unfair surprise bills from their doctors’ offices, pharmacies and labs. SB 982 only addresses surprise bills that come from the emergency room. This may be a giant leap for the Legislature as the climate this session was distracting to say the least. But what about all the Missourians who have surprise bills from other places? Let’s celebrate this victory while also holding the Legislature accountable for addressing the full problem of surprise billing. We can’t wash our hands of this issue yet. Jackie Schmitz • Maplewood

Investigation is better than riots and looting The May 23 editorial cartoon suggests that President Donald Trump will want to investigate the investigation if he does not like the findings in the Russia inquiry.

Thousands of lightning strikes hit the U.K. during a powerful overnight thunderstorm, and a London-area airport reported flight disruptions Sunday after an aircraft refueling system was damaged. London Stansted Airport said that a lightning strike disabled the fueling system “for a period this morning.” More than 200 flights were delayed at Stansted. An additional 31 departures and 18 arrivals were canceled. Meteorologist Charlie Powell said there were “somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 strikes across the U.K. during the overnight period.”

Colombian candidates head for runoff • A right-wing lawyer and a leftist ex-mayor claimed first and second places in Colombia’s first-round presidential elections Sunday. A June 17 runoff will determine the next president to guide Latin America’s third-most-populous nation. With 98 percent of the votes counted, conservative Iván Duque, 41, nailed down 39 percent of the vote, according to Colombia’s national electoral agency. He was followed by the progressive economist and ex-mayor of Bogota, Gustavo Petro, 58, with 25 percent. Far-right Germans rally • Several thousand demonstrators from across Germany gathered in the capital Sunday for a rally organized by the far-right Alternative for Germany party, with anti-AfD protesters lining the route in central Berlin. Started as a euroskeptic party, the AfD got a boost in 2015 after Chancellor Angela Merkel announced an opendoor policy to refugees fleeing places such as Syria and Afghanistan. The surge in foreigners stoked public concern that helped the AfD enter the national parliament last year as the main opposition party.

Italian president rejects economy minister nominee • Italy’s president vetoed on Sunday a euroskeptic choice for economy minister, foiling a bid by populists to form Italy’s next government and increasing the prospects of a quick return to the polls, 12 weeks after national elections produced a political impasse. The pair of rival populists who had agreed to forge a governing coalition together exploded in anger after President Sergio Mattarella announced that he was refusing to appoint a minister whose views could rattle already nervous markets and drive up Italy’s staggeringly high debt.

DEATHS ELSEWHERE Alan Bean • The former Apollo 12 astronaut, who was the fourth man to walk on the moon and later turned to painting to chronicle the moon landings on canvas, has died. He was 86. Mr. Bean died Saturday (May 26, 2018) in Houston after a short illness. Mr. Bean Bean was the lunar module pilot for the second moon landing mission in November 1969. He spent 31 hours on the moon during two moonwalks, deploying surface experiments with commander Charles Conrad and collecting 75 pounds of rocks and lunar soil for study on Earth, according to a statement from NASA and Bean’s family. Glenn Snoddy • The recording engineer whose invention of a pedal that allowed guitarists to create a fuzzy, distorted sound most famously used by Keith Richards in the Rolling Stones’ hit “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” died.May 21, 2018, of congestive heart failure at his home in Murfreesboro, Tenn. He was 96. Mr. Snoddy was helping record country artist Marty Robbins’ song “Don’t Worry” in 1961 when a malfunction caused the distortion in a guitar solo. When other musicians sought the same effect, Snoddy couldn’t recreate it in the studio but invented a pedal where a guitarist could switch into the sound with a tap of the foot. Richard N. Goodwin • The aide, speechwriter and liberal force for the Kennedys and Lyndon Johnson,

long illness. He was 78. Mr. Bloch died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said longtime friend and fellow publicist Stan Rosenfield. Over 58 years, Mr. Bloch deftly handled crisis management for A-listers, including Murphy after his traffic stop for picking up a prostitute and Cruise after his couch-jumping incident on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Stars Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Costner and Michael Keaton were among Mr. Bloch’s other clients, along with filmmakers Robert Zemeckis, Brian Grazer and Jerry Weintraub.

debut album, died May 19, 2018, in New York City from complications with his heart. He was 65. After playing with Davis in the ’70s, Mr. Lucas began a musical partnership with percussionist James Mtume. Together they wrote hits such as Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway’s “The Closer I Get to You” and Stephanie Mills’ “Never Knew Love Like This Before,” which won the duo the Grammy for best R&B song. Mr. Lucas went on to produce the majority of Madonna’s 1983 self-titled debut album, which sold more than 5 million units and included the hits “Borderline” and “Lucky Star.”

Ms. Morison, who acted in films alongside Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, originated the role of an overemotional diva in the Broadway musical “Kiss Me, Kate” and starred on stage opposite Yul Brynner in “The King and I.” She was Morison often cast as the femme fatale or villain, including the mastermind in 1946’s “Dressed to Kill” who sparred with Sherlock Holmes, played by Basil Rathbone.

Brocton Lockwood • The Southern Illinois judge who went to Chicago for a temporary assignment and ended up helping convict dozens of judges, attorneys and police officers in one of city’s most famous corruption cases has died. Mr. Lockwood died May 21, 2018, in Marion, Ill., of Parkinson’s disease. He was 74. Mr. Lockwood filled in on the bench in Chicago in the early 1980s, something downstate judges did to help reduce a backlog of cases in Cook County. But in 1981, he alerted federal authorities to widespread corruption. He wore a wire and taped conversations for three years with corrupt judges, lawyers, court employees and police officers. The investigation, known as “Operation Greylord,” led to the conviction of nearly 100 people.

He was 90. Mr. Posada, who had been diagnosed with throat cancer about five years ago, died Wednesday (May 23, 2018) in Miami. Mr. Posada had been acquitted in 2011 by a federal jury in El Paso, Texas, of lying to U.S. officials about his role in the Havana bombings to win political asylum. He was among a core group of Cuban exiles the CIA trained in the early 1960s in a failed effort to overthrow Fidel Castro’s fledgling communist government. Unlike many others, he never renounced violence as a way to bring about change on the island.

Roger Clark • The drummer, who contributed to the legendary Muscle Shoals sound, has died. The Times Daily reported that guitarist Travis Wammack says Mr. Clark died of a heart attack Thursday (May 24, 2018) at home, at the age of 67. Mr. Clark worked at FAME Recording Studios and Wishbone Recording Studio in the 1970s and ’80s, playing on albums by Lou Rawls, Paul Anka, Tom Jones and others. He played drums on “Family Tradition,” the breakthrough 1979 album of Hank Williams Jr. The Alabama Music Hall of Fame says he drummed on more than 30 gold and platinum albums touring with the Steve Miller Band, Journey and Pointer Sisters, among others.

who helped craft such historic addresses as Robert Kennedy’s “ripples of hope” and LBJ’s speeches on civil rights, died May 20, 2018. He was 86. Mr. Goodwin, the husband of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, died at his home in Concord, Mass., of cancer. Mr. Goodwin was among the youngest members of President John F. Kennedy’s inner circle and among the last survivors. He rose from a working-class background to the Kennedy White House before he had turned 30. He was a Boston native and Harvard Law graduate who specialized in broad, inspirational rhetoric that “would move men to action or alliance.”

Richard Peck • The prize-winning children’s author, who drew upon his Illinois roots for such favorites as “A Long Way from Chicago” and “A Year Down Yonder,” has died. Mr. Peck died of cancer on Wednesday (May 23, 2018) at his home in New York City at age 84. A native of Decatur, Ill., and graduate of Indiana’s DePauw University, he was a prolific author who wrote dozens of books, but didn’t start until his mid-30s when he decided to quit teaching. Willing from the start to address social issues, his debut novel, “Don’t Look and It Won’t Hurt,” was a story of teen pregnancy later adapted into the acclaimed independent movie “Gas Food Lodging.” He received his highest praise for “A Year Down Yonder,” set in rural Illinois during the Great Depression and winner of the John Newbery Medal in 2001 for the year’s best children’s book. A year later, Mr. Peck became the first children’s writer to be given a National Humanities Medal. From news services

Flash flooding hits Maryland town slammed by similar disaster in 2016 Governor declares state of emergency in Ellicott City; water rescue units are called in

ELLICOTT CITY, MD. • Roar-

ing flash floods struck on Sunday a Maryland city that had been wracked by similar devastation two years ago, its main street turned into a raging river that reached the first floor of some buildings and swept away parked cars. News outlets showed photos and video of sudden and violent floodwater surging down Main Street in Ellicott City, some 13 miles west of Baltimore. The town, set along the west bank of Maryland’s Patapsco River, was also stricken by deadly flash

flooding in July 2016. Emergency officials had no immediate reports of fatalities or injuries. But first responders and rescue officials were still going through the muddied, damaged downtown, conducting safety checks and ensuring that people were evacuated. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency for the town and traveled there late Sunday for a firsthand look. Some residents of Ellicott City told The Baltimore Sun the flooding appeared to be worse than the 2016 flooding that killed two people and destroyed some local businesses.

One sight during the flood: a handmade, white flag hung from an upper story of a Main Street building bearing the letters SOS. “If you are trapped, we are coming,” the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services tweeted at one point. It added that multiple rescues were carried out, and rescue swimmers were called in to help. The department also said swiftwater units from as far away as Northern Virginia were summoned. Meanwhile, some roads were also flooded in neighboring Baltimore County. A spokeswoman in Baltimore County said the fire

department had received dozens of calls about flooded basements and cars stuck in high water. Ellicott City has been rebuilding since the 2016 flooding. Local officials recently said that 96 percent of the businesses were back in operation and more than 20 new businesses had again opened in the Main Street area. Just two weeks ago, Hogan announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had awarded the state and county more than $1 million to pay for projects aimed at reducing the flood risk in areas around Main Street.

Gulf Coast braces for impact of Alberto Florida beaches normally packed with vacationers are largely empty as storm nears BY TAMARA LUSH AND REBECCA SANTANA associated Press

ST. PETER SBURG, FLA . •

Beaches in Florida were largely empty ahead of Memorial Day as the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Subtropical Storm Alberto, approached the northern Gulf Coast carrying brisk wind and heavy rain. The storm disrupted holiday weekend plans from Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle to Miami Beach on Florida’s southeastern edge. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and dangerous conditions. It also triggered mandatory evacuations of some small, sparsely populated Gulf Coast barrier islands. The Florida Division of Emergency Management said Sunday that a mandatory evacuation had been issued in Franklin County for all barrier islands there and those in the county living directly on the coast in mobile homes or in recreational vehicle parks.

Alberto got an early jump on the 2018 hurricane season, which starts June 1. The storm prompted Florida, Alabama and Mississippi to launch emergency preparations over the weekend amid expectations that Alberto would reach land sometime Monday. Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday. Gusty showers began lashing parts of Florida on Sunday, and authorities were warning of the possibility of flash flooding. Forecasters said Alberto had most recently taken a northnorthwest track that would bring it over the northern Gulf of Mexico during the night and make landfall on or near the Florida Panhandle on Monday. A subtropical storm such as Alberto has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes. Heavy rain and tropical storm conditions could reach the northern Gulf Coast well ahead of when the center of Al-

berto makes landfall. Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center in Miami discontinued all storm surge warnings for most of the state’s peninsula. Mark Bowen, the Bay County Emergency management director, said Sunday that a storm surge wasn’t likely due to the timing of landfall and the tides. He said Alberto’s biggest threat would be its heavy rain, from 4 to 12 inches in some areas. In Taylor County, there were voluntary evacuations for those in coastal zones and beach communities, mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas. In Gulf County, T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park began evacuations Sunday morning. In Miami, organizers called off the sea portion of the Miami Beach Air & Sea Show on Sunday because of heavy rain and rough water. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners worried about floods. Live video from webcams posted in Clearwater and Destin showed half-empty beaches, and whitecaps roiled

the normally placid Gulf waters. The hurricane center said Sunday that a tropical storm warning was in effect from Bonita Beach, Fla., to the Mississippi-Alabama border. In Gulf Shores, Ala., webcams showed beaches starting to fill up as the storm’s track shifted slightly east away from the region, but red flags on the beach warned beachgoers to stay out of the rough water. Grant Brown, the city’s public information officer, said they had finished preparations such as clearing culverts to prepare for big rain. With conditions expected to worsen overnight, officials are encouraging people planning to check out Monday to give themselves extra time. Jeffrey Medlin, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service’s Mobile office, warned that even after the storm moves north there will still be swells that could cause dangerous rip currents. Just because it’s “nice and sunny” after the storm passes, Medlin said, there’s still a risk for swimmers. “People have drowned by going out to the water too soon,” he said.

Fort Peck Tribal Chairman Floyd Azure told Zinke that law enforcement for the county and the tribe could not keep up with the issues meth addiction has caused. For example, he blamed meth addiction in families for most of the children entering foster care.

The recall covers 12-ounce metal cans containing “SPAM Classic” with a “Best By” date of February 2021. From news services

RALEIGH, N.C. • Attorneys for the world’s largest pork producer don’t want jurors to hear about the finances of a company whose industrial-scale hog operations caused a stench so bad it made life miserable for its rural neighbors. Jury selection is scheduled to start Tuesday in a Raleigh federal courthouse for the second trial over claims the method in which Hong Kong-owned, Va.-based Smithfield Foods raises hogs caused a number of problems for neighbors after the operations moved in. “Plaintiffs have suffered episodes of noxious and sickening odor, onslaughts of flies and pests, nausea, burning and watery eyes, stress, anger, worry, loss of use and enjoyment of their property” among other harms, attorney Mona Lisa Wallace wrote in a court filing. Angry neighbors say that for years they’ve put up with livestock sewage that was supposed to be sprayed over crops instead drifting to coat their homes and cars. They say they endure clouds of flies drawn to open waste cesspools. And they say buzzards are drawn to feast on the flesh of dead hogs stacked near their homes. As many as 10 of the two dozen lawsuits by more than 500 neighbors could go to trials this year. The first case in the series ended last month with jurors awarding the 10 neighbors of a 15,000-head swine operation a total of $750,000 in compensation, plus $50 million in damages designed to punish Smithfield. But the judge slashed the punitive damages to a total of $2.5 million, citing a state law that limits the punishment for corporate misdeeds. Still, the verdict rocked the industry in the country’s No. 2 pork-producing state, where local and state politicians have either supported the pork industry or backed down in the face of its clout. The results of the coming trial and others to follow could protect or tarnish Smithfield’s reputation, and that could have spillover effects on its business, said Michelle Nowlin, the supervising attorney of Duke University’s Environmental Law and Policy Clinic. But North Carolina’s liability limits mean even if juries think the company is a bad actor, Smithfield won’t take a bath financially, she said. “This was a cap that was designed to protect corporations, and it is working as it was intended, putting corporate interests ahead of community interests and ahead of those who have been injured by corporate malfeasance. That’s the unfair system that we have,” Nowlin said. Smithfield has not changed the locally dominant method of hog waste disposal since intensive hog operations multiplied in North Carolina in the 1980s and ’90s. The practice involves housing thousands of hogs together, flushing their waste into holding pits, allowing bacteria to break down the material, then spraying it onto fields with agricultural spray guns. The upcoming trial involves a Duplin County operation of as many as 4,700 animals owned by Joey Carter, former police chief of the nearby town of Beulaville. As with the hog farm owner in the first trial, Carter is not being sued because Smithfield’s hograising division uses strict contracts to dictate how farm operators raise livestock Smithfield owns, attorneys for the neighbors said. Evidence presented at the first trial “was inflammatory, resulting in punitive awards for each plaintiff over twenty times larger than permitted by North Carolina law,” said Mark Anderson, an attorney representing Smithfield’s Murphy-Brown division. To prevent that from happening again, U.S. District Judge W. Earl Britt “should exclude all evidence of either Murphy-Brown or its parent companies’ financial condition.” WH Group, which bought Smithfield Foods in 2013, generated $22 billion in revenue last year, the company reported in March. The vast majority of the 20 million hogs it produced last year are in the U.S. and Europe, the company said. Murphy-Brown has operations in 12 states, including Missouri; it has 1,400 sites in North Carolina.

7 victory at stake, LeBron James would not miss. He would not sit out. And he would not be denied an eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals. The four-time league MVP scored 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists Sunday night, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 87-79 win over the Celtics and eliminating Boston from the Eastern Conference finals in the decisive seventh game. In the first close game of the series — and the lowest-scoring — James played all 48 minutes and had 12 of his points in the fourth quarter for his sixth straight Game 7 win. The NBA Finals begin Thursday at either Houston or Golden State. The Rockets host the seventh game of the West finals on Monday night. Jayson Tatum scored 24, Al Horford scored 17 and Marcus Morris added 14 points with 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who were looking to go to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

DIGEST Ricciardo holds off Vettel in Monaco Grand Prix

Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo steadied his nerve when victory threatened to escape him again as he overcame a significant midrace power loss to win the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday. After guzzling champagne from his sweaty shoe — as he likes to do — it was time to cool off. The popular Australian swan-dived into the swimming pool located on the roof of Red Bull’s motorhome in Monaco’s glitzy harbor. Better known for his attacking prowess and razor-sharp overtaking, Ricciardo had earlier shown outstanding defensive driving to fend off Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari despite losing an estimated 25 percent of his engine power. Vettel closed to within one second of Ricciardo with more than half of the 78-lap race left. It seemed certain the German would pass him at some point, but Ricciardo held firm for the seventh win of his career. Even though the 3.34-kilometer (2.1-mile) street circuit is narrow and notoriously difficult to overtake on, it was still a remarkable drive by Ricciardo, given his damaging power deficit. “So much went on for me in that race, trying to figure out what was going on,” said Ricciardo, who was fastest in all three practice sessions as well as qualifying. “This was probably the best weekend of my career.” Vettel shaved a few points off championship leader Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, who finished third. “I think we had the pace,” Vettel said after missing out on a 50th career win. “But Daniel had the answers all the time.” Hamilton made an audacious move by pitting for new tires several laps before his rivals, but was worried they would wear out by the end. “It would have been nice to have come second but I did all I could,” Hamilton said. Hosts named for NCAA baseball • Florida State will host a regional in the NCAA baseball tournament for the 35th time, while Stetson was named a first-time host. The NCAA announced the 16 regional sites Sunday night, and the rest of the 64-team field, which will include St. Louis U., will be unveiled Monday. Each regional will be made up of four teams playing in a doubleelimination format. All are scheduled from Friday through Monday. Regional winners advance to best-of-three super regionals, and those eight winners go on to the College World Series. Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, Oregon State, Stanford and Texas Tech all hosted regionals in 2017. Other regional sites are Georgia, Texas, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Minnesota, Mississippi and North Carolina State. Blues’ pick shines • Blues prospect Evan Fitzpatrick made 28 saves to lead Acadie-Bathurst to its first Memorial Cup title, 3-0 over the host Regina Pats in the Canadian major junior championship. Salah expects to be ready for World Cup • Egypt forward Mohamed Salah says he is confident of being fit for the World Cup after hurting his shoulder playing for Liverpool in the Champions League final. Salah left the field in tears in the first half after landing heavily following a tussle with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. It was 0-0 at the time, and Madrid went on to win 3-1 on Saturday. Egypt is playing in the World Cup for the first time since 1990. Its first group game is against Uruguay on June 15. Dorn staying at N.C. State • Torin Dorn says he’s coming back to North Carolina State for his senior year. Dorn began the draft evaluation process in April but did not hire an agent. Dorn averaged 13.9 points and 6.3 rebounds. Associated Press

PARIS • A year after stunning the tennis world by winning the French Open for her initial tourlevel title, Jelena Ostapenko is again in rare company: a firstround loser as the defending champion at a Grand Slam tournament. Something even more unusual happened at Roland Garros, too: Venus Williams was beaten in her opening match at a second consecutive major, the only time in her lengthy, distinguished career she’s had such early back-to-back exits. All in all, it was quite a Day 1 at the only Grand Slam site that gets things started on a Sunday. There already is certain to be at least one first-time French Open finalist, because 2010 champion Francesca Schiavone and 2012 runnerup Sara Errani joined 2017 champ Ostapenko and 2002 runner-up Williams on the way out of the bottom half of the draw. Ostapenko’s high-risk game produced far fewer rewards than problems, with 48 unforced errors to only 22 winners as she bowed out to 67th-ranked Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine 7-5, 6-3 at Court Philippe Chatrier. Over at Court Suzanne Lenglen, things went similarly for Williams, a seven-time major champion, who had 21 more unforced errors than her opponent in a 6-4, 7-5 loss to 85th-ranked

Venus Williams reacts after losing to China’s Wang Qiang during their first-round match.

Wang Qiang of China. “Terrible day at the office today for me. I mean, in general, I played maybe, like, 20 percent of what I can play. Made like 50 unforced errors and so many double-faults. Like, couldn’t serve today,” Ostapenko said. “I had this unbelievable pressure. I felt that I’m not myself.” She is only the second reigning women’s French Open champion to exit in the first round a year later — it happened to 2005 winner Anastasia Myskina, too — and only the sixth at any major tournament in the professional era. Errani lost to 32nd-seeded Alize Cornet of France 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, while Schiavone was beaten by Viktoria Kuzmova 7-6 (2), 7-6 (2). Also out of that half of the draw: No. 22 Johanna Konta of Britain, a 6-4, 6-3 loser against Yulia Putintseva. All seeded men in action won, including No. 2 Alexander Zverev

and No. 4 Grigor Dimitrov. In 2017, ranked only 47th and 20 years old, Ostapenko became the first woman since 1979 to win her initial tour-level trophy at a Grand Slam tournament. But the fifth-seeded Latvian has had a rough road this season: Her record is just 12-12. Kozlova, meanwhile, is 24 and arrived at Roland Garros with an even worse mark for 2018 — 4-6. She wasn’t even sure a couple of months ago whether she could participate, because she damaged knee cartilage and resumed practicing for about 15 minutes at a time in April. “I didn’t expect anything from this match,” said Kozlova, who never had beaten someone ranked in the top 30 and was 1-6 in Grand Slam play before Sunday. She is now 3-0 against Ostapenko, however. Ostapenko was largely her own undoing. She allowed her opponent to convert seven of 16 break points. Williams appeared to be getting back into her match when she grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second set. But she immediately gave away that edge and kept missing shots this way and that. “I like to think,” she said, “that I win all my matches if I’m playing well.” On this day, she was not. Nor was Ostapenko. And both already are gone from the French Open, just as things were getting started.

An unlikely Stanley Cup series begins ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS • The Washington

Capitals have waited nearly 44 years to raise the Stanley Cup for the first time. Their only remaining obstacles are some desert-dwelling misfits who refuse to wait for anything. The expansion Vegas Golden Knights are just four wins away from an astounding championship when they host Alex Ovechkin’s long-striving Caps on Monday night to open a thoroughly improbable Stanley Cup Finals. Even the players from the NHL’s last two teams standing seemed a bit surprised by their achievements when they gathered Sunday in balmy 84-degree Nevada weather. “Who would have thunk it?” asked Vegas defenseman Nate Schmidt, who played the previous four seasons for the Capitals. “The Stanley Cup Final that was never meant to be, right?” Indeed, a first-time NHL champ will be crowned next month after a series between two teams that arrived at hockey’s ultimate destination from very different directions. While the Caps finally climbed over the hump in the Eastern Conference, the Golden Knights have been bulldozing every logical obstacle in their path since October. “We’ve been able to do some things in the playoffs, but we never got to that last stage until now,” Caps forward T.J. Oshie said. “And everybody knows what Vegas did in the first year is very special. We’re both hungry. This is going to be a beast of a series.” The Golden Knights have ex-

ceeded every expectation by utilizing a rich expansion draft and multiple clever coaching moves to create a team that dominated the Pacific Division and then rampaged through the Western playoffs. Their story still carries a ring of impossibility, but they’re close to adding a real ring to every hand in the dressing room full of selfdescribed “Golden Misfits,” as their T-shirts say.

The Capitals have repeatedly fallen short of their postseason goals during Ovechkin’s career, including a heartbreaking shutout loss to Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 7 of the second round against Pittsburgh last spring. After falling to Fleury’s champion Penguins in the past two postseasons, the Caps revamped their roster with youth and finally overcame years of playoff disappointment to reach their first Finals in two decades. Of course, Fleury is in the way again — in goal for the Knights. Both can cement their legacies. Ovechkin is a formidable scorer and competitor, but he has never won an Olympic medal with Russia or a Stanley Cup ring with the Caps. He’s keeping a sense of humor about this momentous trip: With a straight face Sunday, Ovechkin said Russian President Vladimir Putin had called him to wish him luck, before adding: “I’m just joking.” “We want to be here,” Ovechkin said. “We work so hard all year. I don’t think nobody believes in us, and nobody believes in Vegas, and we’re right now in the Stanley Cup Finals, and we fight for a Cup. Come enjoy this moment.” Fleury already has three Stanley Cup rings, but he has added another incredible act to his career with tenacious play for the Golden Knights. “Obviously, I’m not surprised (Fleury) is here,” said Brooks Orpik, the only Washington player with a ring. “Without him, they weren’t beating us last year. He singlehandedly won a couple of games for (Pittsburgh) when we totally outplayed them.”

Power wins his first Indianapolis 500

NOTEBOOK Sad day, happy day for Ed Carpenter Ed Carpenter spends the entire year thinking about the Indianapolis 500, even though he runs a full-time IndyCar effort with other drivers in the seat the rest of the year. He is the stepson of Tony George, whose family has owned Indianapolis Motor Speedway for decades and who founded the Indy Racing League in the 1990s. That explains why Carpenter had such a hard time processing things Sunday. On the one hand, he was overjoyed about leading a career-best 65 laps and dominating long stretches of the race at his beloved speedway, which stands within sight of the home where he grew up. On the other, he was devastated that he couldn’t track down Will Power in the closing laps, leaving him with a second-place finish at the one place he wants to win most. “I’ll feel pretty good about this in a couple days,” Carpenter said with a shrug. “Hopefully this will kind of be a springboard for the team to have some strong finishes.”

INDY • FROM B1

It eventually comes to you. (Indy) was the last box to tick, to be considered as a very successful driver.” The different approach landed Power in the most storied winner’s circle in history Sunday when he gave Penske a 17th victory in “The Great American Race.” Power actually swept the month of May at Indy after winning on the road course two weeks ago and his 34 wins tied him with Al Unser Jr. for eighth on IndyCar’s all-time list. Power is also the winningest IndyCar driver in Penske history (31). He is the first Australian victor in the 102 runnings of the race, and joined countryman Daniel Ricciardo as winners on the biggest day of the year in motorsports. Ricciardo won Formula One’s Monaco Grand Prix earlier Sunday. Power celebrated the checkered flag by screaming into his radio: “Show me respect, (expletive)!” When he got to the winner’s circle, he screamed some more. Some two hours after the race, he was exhausted. “I just screamed like I’ve never screamed before. It was just amazing. The last two laps, the last lap, seeing the white flag, the checkered, I mean, you can’t explain it,” Power said. “It’s what I needed so badly, what I wanted so badly, and it came true. Anyone here knows how that would feel.” Penske arrived in Indy with four fast Chevrolets, and the engine builder was determined to snap Honda’s two-race Indy 500 winning streak. The Chevys were the fastest cars in the field and Team Penske had four equal chances to win. As Power held off pole winner Ed Carpenter to win his first Indy 500, the 81-year-old Penske pumped his fist in the air and clapped. “To be able to race on Memorial Day in the biggest sporting event in the world, have America the way it is, that’s what I’m going to take away from this race,” Penske said. “I’m just so thrilled, 17 wins. Now I have to worry about 18. I’m not going to look back, I’ll look forward. We have to be back next year.” Penske also credited

Crashing out • It was a tough day for some of the biggest names at the Indianapolis 500. Four-time series champion Sebastien Bourdais saw his championship hopes damaged when he hit the fourth-turn wall on Lap 139. Race winners Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan both crashed late in Sunday’s race, and Danica Patrick’s retirement party came crashing down when she hit the wall on Lap 68. And all four went out the same way — spinning into walls on a hot, humid day that tested IndyCar’s new aero kits as well as the driving skills of four of the world’s top drivers. Heat wave • Unusually warm weather took a toll on everyone at the Indy 500. More than 150 fans sought treatment at the infield medical center for heatrelated problems. Drivers and teams had to rethink race strategy based on tire wear. Roger Penske even brought a special fan to help keep his pit crews cool on one of the hottest days in race history. “I’m pretty sure I’m burnt to a crisp,” said Bryan Alexander, a 40-year-old race fan from New Paris, Ohio. “It was a pretty warm day today. You kind of got used to it after a while. Just keep sunscreen on and keep yourself hydrated. That’s about the best you can do.” The temperature hit 91 degrees, matching the 2012 race for the secondhottest race ever. The top spot still belongs to 1937, when it was 92 degrees. Fans scrambled for shade wherever they could find it. On the track, there was little refuge as asphalt surface temperatures topped 120 degrees.

Will Power of Australia leads the field on a restart late in the Indianapolis 500 on his way to winning the race.

his strong lineup of 2014 series champion Power, 2016 champion Simon Pagenaud, reigning champion Josef Newgarden and three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves. “We had four great cars. That’s what you have to have here. You have to have four bullets, whatever it takes,” Penske said. In the winner’s circle, Power could not contain his glee. He screamed to his wife, Liz, took a sip of the traditional milk, then dumped the rest over his head and around his crew. Liz Power reached for the empty milk bottle, then pointed out to her husband that he’d sprayed milk all over one of the Indy 500 princesses. He apologized, then started screaming again. Splashing the princess was the only wrong move Power made all day during an event that saw many top drivers make costly mistakes. Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Sebastien Bourdais and Danica Patrick were among those who crashed in singlecar spins. Defending race winner Takuma Sato was also knocked out when he ran into the back of a slower car. Power led 59 laps, but his final pit stop dropped him to fourth, behind three cars that were trying to win on fuel mileage. Kanaan’s crash with 12 laps remaining set up a final restart with Oriol Servia out front. He didn’t get a great restart and was passed by Stefan Wilson and Jack Harvey. But all three

needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down. Wilson and Harvey both ducked onto pit lane for gas, giving Power the lead with four laps remaining. He knew he had it won when he took the white flag all alone, and spent the final lap yelling to himself in joy as he drove away from the field. “I was wondering if I would ever win it and thoughts went through my mind during the month, my career,” he said. “I’ve had so many wins, so many poles. Everyone talks about the 500 and I just couldn’t imagine winning a race in front of a crowd like this, this many people. It’s just amazing.” Carpenter was second in a Chevy and noted just how much Power used to hate the speedway. “He hated ovals and now he loves them,” he said. “He and I love racing together. Maybe someday he’ll race for me. I don’t know if we have a tampering rule in IndyCar, but congrats, Will.” Scott Dixon stretched his fuel to finish third and was followed by Alexander Rossi, who drove from 32nd to fourth and made some of the most spectacular moves in the race. Rossi had no choice: It was difficult to pass in the 2018 car on a day that was one of the hottest in 500 history. The conditions created a slick, 2½-mile track, and new cars with less downforce proved to be a handful for even the most experienced drivers.

that had eluded him. Busch started on the pole, won every stage in the circuit’s longest race and left everyone else in the field fighting for second on the way to his fourth victory of the season. The victory gave Busch a points-race win at every NASCAR track on the schedule. “I don’t know if it has ever been done before but the first one ever to check off all of the tracks and get it all done,” Busch said. “I don’t want to go to any new ones so now we just have to start the whole process over.” Martin Truex Jr. was second, some four seconds behind. It was two years ago Truex had his own mind-boggling performance, leading 392 of 400 laps for a NASCAR record 588 of 600 miles to win at Charlotte. Kevin Harvick’s try for a third straight points win this month ended with an early accident. Busch’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Denny

Hamlin, was third, followed by Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson. Busch’s victory ended a day of dominance on racing’s single biggest day. Things began with Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo taking the pole and leading every lap at the Monaco Grand Prix. It continued at the Indianapolis 500 with Will Power giving owner Roger Penske his 17th win at the Brickyard. Once Busch took the track, he quickly proved he would not be kept out of Charlotte’s Victory Lane again.

This race figured to be a match race between NASCAR’s two hottest drivers in Busch and Harvick. Harvick had won five times, including the past two points events and the All-Star race last week. Instead, Harvick’s race ended early after an accident on lap 83. Harvick hit the wall, cut a front tire and trailed sparks on the track toward the garage. Harvick showed off one of the best cars, rallying from starting 39th because of inspection problems this week to get to fourth before his problems began. “Happy” Harvick didn’t sound too broken up about his quick night. “I can’t complain about anything that’s happened this year,” said Harvick, who finished last. “We have to take the good with the bad.” Harvick last left the track early in the seasonopening Daytona 500,

then followed that with three straight victories.

WHO’S HOT

Things may be turning around for seven-time NASCAR series champion Johnson, who had his fifth top-10 finish this season and fourth in the past six races. Johnson rallied from a mid-race spin to get himself into the top five.

WHO’S NOT

Harvick wasn’t the only contender to leave the track early. Defending champion Austin Dillon also hit the wall after blowing a tire. Smoke enveloped his pit area as Dillon’s team tried to repair the damage and the car headed to the garage for extensive fixes before coming back to the track 52 laps down.

UP NEXT

The series heads to Pocono Raceway next Sunday to start the second half of the 26 regular-season races.

THIS DATE IN BASEBALL May 28 1918 • Boston’s Joe Bush pitched a 1-0 one-hitter against the Chicago White Sox and drove in the lone run. The only Chicago hit was by Happy Felsch. It occurred when he threw his bat at the ball on a hit and run. 1939 • Philadelphia pitcher Robert Joyce was victimized two straight days by New York’s George Selkirk. Joyce gave up two homers to Selkirk a day earlier. Joyce came on in relief on this day and gave up two more homers to Selkirk. Selkirk ended with four homers in four at-bats against the same pitcher over two successive games. The Yankees won 9-5. 1946 • The Washington Senators beat New York 2-1 in the first night game at Yankee Stadium. The first ball was thrown out by General Electric president Charles E. Wilson. 1951 • After going 0-for-12 in his first three major league games, Willie Mays of the New York Giants hit a home run off Warren Spahn in a 4-1 loss to the Boston Braves. 1956 • Dale Long of the Pittsburgh Pirates hit a home run in his eighth consecutive game, a major league record. Long connected off Brooklyn’s Carl Erskine at Forbes Field. 1968 • The American League announced the league will be split into two divisions. The East division will consist of Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, New York and Washington. California, Chicago, Kansas City, Minnesota, Oakland and Seattle will make up the West. 1979 • George Brett of the Kansas City Royals hit for the cycle and added another home run to beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 in 16 innings. 1986 • Joe Cowley of the Chicago White Sox set a major league record by striking out the first seven batters he faced. He lasted 4 2-3 innings in a 6-3 loss to the Texas Rangers. 1995 • The White Sox and Tigers set a major league record with 12 homers, and combined for an American League-record 21 extra-base hits in Chicago’s 14-12 victory in Detroit. 1998 • Arizona manager Buck Showalter intentionally walked Barry Bonds with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and the Diamondbacks held on to beat San Francisco 8-7. 2003 • Atlanta became the second team in major league history to start a game with three straight homers in its 15-3 win over the Reds. Rafael Furcal, Mark DeRosa and Gary Sheffield hit consecutive home runs off Jeff Austin in the bottom of the first. The Padres did it against the Giants on April 13, 1987. 2006 • Barry Bonds hit his 715th home run during the San Francisco Giants’ 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies to slip past Babe Ruth and pull in right behind Hank Aaron, whose long-standing record of 755. 2007 • Adrian Beltre tied a franchise record with four extra-base hits, including two homers, as Seattle pounded the Los Angeles Angels 12-5.

Harper homers as Nats sweep Marlins

NATIONAL LEAGUE Dodgers 6, Padres 1

Bryce Harper hit his NL-leading 16th home run Sunday and the Washington Nationals completed a threegame sweep by beating the host Miami Marlins for the 11th time in a row, 5-2. The Nationals matched the longest winning streak in franchise history against one team. It’s the Marlins’ longest losing streak against an opponent since 1999. Cubs 8, Giants 3 • San Francisco scored three runs in the top of the first and then was shut out the rest of the way as the Cubs rolled to a win. Rockies 8, Reds 2 • Carlos Gonzalez had a season-high four hits, including a thirddeck homer off Matt Harvey, and Colorado beat visiting Cincinnati. Brewers 8, Mets 7 • Domingo Santana’s tworun double highlighted a four-run seventh inning for Milwaukee, which shelled visiting New York’s battered bullpen again and then held on for a win. Dodgers 6, Padres 1 • Rookie Walker Buehler tied a career high with eight strikeouts, Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger homered and Los Angeles beat visiting San Diego for its eighth victory in 10 games.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Indians 10, Astros 9 • Rookie Greg Allen homered on Brad Peacock’s first pitch in the 14th inning, and Cleveland stunned visiting Houston. Yankees 3, Angels 1 • Masahiro Tanaka scattered three hits over six strong innings and struck out fellow Japanese countryman Shohei Ohtani twice as host New York defeated Los Angeles. Tigers 3, White Sox 2 • Blaine Hardy pitched seven strong innings to help host Detroit beat Chicago. Mariners 3, Twins 1 • Ryon Healy doubled home two runs in the eighth inning and Alex Colome earned a save in his first outing for host Seattle, which has won eight of its past nine. Royals 5, Rangers 3 • Jason Hammel struck out 10, Drew Butera and Salvador Perez homered, and visiting Kansas City held on to beat Texas. Rays 8, Orioles 3 • Relievers Vidal Nuno and Austin Pruitt combined to throw 8 2/3 scoreless innings, Brad Miller had three RBIs and Tampa Bay beat visiting Baltimore.

INTERLEAGUE

Braves 7, Red Sox 1 • Prized Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. took a high-flying tumble while beating out an infield hit, exiting with knee and lower back pain as the Braves beat host Boston. Blue Jays 5, Phillies 3 • Devon Travis and Dwight Smith Jr. each hit two-run doubles, J.A. Happ pitched neatly into the seventh inning and Toronto won on the road. Athletics 2, Diamondbacks 1 • Matt Chapman hit a tiebreaking RBI single off Zack Greinke with two out in the sixth inning, and Oakland won at home. Associated Press

NOTEBOOK

Fowler expects to be back soon BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-dispatch

PITTSBURGH • Right fielder Dexter

Fowler, hit on the right knee by a pitch Saturday, was not in Sunday’s Cardinals lineup and the club made no move to replace him. “Day to day,” said John Mozeliak, president of baseball operations. Fowler suggested that day might come in Milwaukee, where the club headed for a three-game series after Sunday’s game. “I feel great. Thanks for asking,” said Fowler, before the question even was profferred after the game. “Yes, I am improved. See you soon. I don’t Fowler know how soon.” But, he said, “I’ve had some good antiinflammatories.” Manager Mike Matheny said he had heard that Fowler was “improved. I don’t know what that means. We’ll find out tomorrow.” While Fowler was continuing to recover, bench coach Mike Shildt narrowly avoided serious injury when Starling Marte’s first-inning foul ball zinged into the close-by Cardinals dugout along the first base line and Shildt, wearing his hat, was hit flush in the head by the liner. “I didn’t go down,” said Shildt, proudly. Nor did he bleed, but he had tests during the game and was told to stay overnight in Pittsburgh as he was to have a CT scan Sunday night. “That was scary,” said Matheny. “We’re close here, real close. “If it was just over a couple of feet, it would have got me, but unfortunately it got Mike. It was loud. “He was adamant that he was fine. Fortunately the doctors agreed.” But when Shildt returned to the dugout, “I made him sit below the net (which is in front of the dugout) the rest of the day,” said Matheny. “I knew if I stood on top, he would have stood there with me, so I stood down low. I hid behind the net.”

Shortly thereafter, Carson Kelly shot a similar liner into the dugout, but this one hit only the back wall. “I reacted after the ball was hit,” said Matheny, “and I’m paying close attention. It’s just scary. You could see the mark on the wall.” Before he underwent his next test, Shildt, who is slated to join the team in Milwaukee on Monday, said, “I’m fine. I’m good” Pointing to his head, he said, “It’s hard as a rock. The good thing is that we won the game.”

rest of the league is going to be wary of throwing them strikes, so make them pay. Make them pay by taking free bases. Don’t get so locked in that you have to do something every time you walk up to the plate because a walk is something. “If they’re going to continue to throw out of the zone, bring them to you. We know that he can do it. But he’s not immune to the fact that the league will try to find those holes and you’ve to patch those holes up.”

WALK HURTS MIKOLAS

OPPONENTS’ LARCENY IS LIMITED, BUT PERFECT

Cardinals righthander Miles Mikolas, the top control artist in the National League, had issued only one of his six walks in 60 1/3 innings to a leadoff batter in an inning. That one didn’t score, but the one walk he permitted Sunday — to Pittsburgh’s Elias Diaz to open the fifth inning — came around to score. The big hit in the inning was a tworun triple over the head of center fielder Tommy Pham, who was certain he should have caught the ball. “I misread it,” Pham said. “It’s a good thing we won because I would have felt bad if we’d lost. I felt like I cost the team three runs and I cost Miles a chance to win the game. I felt like I should have caught it. “I’ve got to get better.” Mikolas, who shut out Kansas City in his previous start, remained unbeaten at 6-0 as the Cardinals rallied.

O’NEILL LOSES CONTACT

Tyler O’Neill, who hit safely in his first six games after his recall and bashed three homers, has struck out in seven of his last nine at-bats, all hitless. He had four whiffs in five at-bats Sunday as Fowler’s replacement. “It’s not easy for anybody,” said Matheny. “He came out with a bang but he’s not going to be in there every single day and it’s going to be hard to adjust to. “They’re testing him outside the (strike) zone and he’s got to have strike zone awareness. We’ve had some other hitters (read: Randal Grichuk) with a lot of potential and a lot of power and the

Despite the low steal total against them, the Cardinals long since have set the record for most games from the start of a season without throwing anybody out stealing, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Since 1951, when caught stealings first were tracked, the Cardinals’ mark of 50 games as of Sunday was well ahead of Boston, which had 24 games this year and Cleveland, which had 24 in 2011. The Cardinals gave up their 16th steal in 16 attempts Sunday. That is the lowest stolen base total allowed in the majors, a tribute to the career excellence of injured Yadier Molina. Tampa Bay has the next worst percentage at throwing out runners at 10.34 on three for 26. But the Cardinals also have been caught the most times stealing at 17.

BREWERS ARE NEXT

The Brewers, who have the best record in the league at 34-20, provide many challenges for the Cardinals. “They’re the hottest team in baseball right now,” said Pham. “The back of their bullpen is really good.” Matt Carpenter said, “It would be nice for us to switch with them and start playing as well as they are.” And Matheny said, “I’m looking forward to it. I like our guys hitting there.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

Cards reverse trend, win series in Pittsburgh CARDINALS • FROM B1

stingy bullpen, scoring three runs to erase a 4-3 Pittsburgh lead. The runs batted in came on a bloop single, a bases loaded walk and a forceout grounder. Almost as hard to believe as the Cardinals’ walk total in the series was their .129 pinch hitting average (eight for 62) entering Sunday’s game with only three runs batted in. This by far was the worst in the league and stunningly in contrast to their .300 pinch hit average of 2017, or the .333 mark in 2016 which included a record 17 pinch homers. “It’s a tough job,” said hitting coach John Mabry, a premier pinch hitter when he played. But the Cardinals were two for two off the bench, plus a walk, on Sunday. Jedd Gyorko’s two-out pinch single in the seventh had got the Cardinals back into the game at 4-3 when they had entered the inning with only two hits to the outfield, both doubles by Matt Carpenter, and the one unintentional walk of the series, again by Carpenter in the sixth. In the seventh, manager Mike Matheny had lefthanded-batting Greg Garcia in the on-deck circle against Pittsburgh righthander Edgar Santana but pulled him back in favor of righthandedbatting Gyorko, who had been hitless in five pinch at-bats. Garcia had been two for 16. Matheny said he had been convinced by his coaches to change. “That was a little unconventional to bring in the righthander when we would typically would have Greg Garcia in there, but (the coaches) liked what they saw and it absolutely was the right call,” said Matheny. “He just had a feeling,” said Gyorko. “He liked the matchup. After the at-bats, I came over to him and gave him some love and said, ‘Thanks for believing in me and putting me in that spot.’” In the eighth, Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle, perhaps figuring the Cardinals were low on extra players, especially with Dexter Fowler (bruised knee) out, sought to run lefthanded-hitting Kolten Wong out of the game by bringing in lefthander Felipe Vazquez. Last year, this same pitcher was named Felipe Rivero, and he had three saves and two wins against the Cardinals. As Vazquez, he was not the same. Matheny had no hesitation to bring in righthanded-hitting Harrison Bader, even though the latter was one for 11 as a pinch hitter this season. Bader blooped a single to right to tie the score. Yairo Munoz, who has proven very difficult to walk in his brief career, drew one of the four walks to force home Tommy Pham, who had walked. And Carson Kelly

beat out the relay on a doubleplay grounder to score the third run. “That’s about as fast as I can go,” said Kelly. Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas still is unbeaten at 6-0, though he allowed four runs in six innings. Sam Tuivailala gained the triumph with a perfect inning in the seventh, which was matched by rookie Jordan Hicks in the eighth and in the ninth by Bud Norris, who is 11 for 11 in saves as he saved games on consecutive days for the first time as a Cardinal. Over the last two seasons, the Pirates had beaten the Cardinals six times in their last seven meetings in Pittsburgh before the Cardinals won Saturday and Sunday. Jose Martinez had the only hard-hit ball of the eighth inning, a leadoff single. Pham walked. This brought to the plate fourthplace hitter Marcell Ozuna, who cleaned up nothing in his previous at-bat when he grounded into a double play with runners at first and third in the sixth. He walked in the eighth to fill the bases. “The game tells you what you have to do,” Ozuna said. “The at-bat before, I hit a ground-ball double play and they were going to try to do the same thing. They were going to try to drive me crazy and make me swing at everything. But I said, ‘I’m not going to swing if it’s not a good

pitch’. “Before, I swung at a pitch in the dirt and I rushed my at-bat.” “When he has those RBI situations, he knows, ‘This is my situation. I come through,” said Matheny. “He’s frustrated. When you go through (those), it’s like a BB being shot past you. He’s fighting right now.” Ozuna, for instance, is only three for 10 in driving in runners from third base with under two outs. “Then, you get another chance and you usually try to do more than what you need to,” said Matheny. “For him to pass the baton on to the next guy was a great job.” Bader was that next guy. Matheny had talked before the game how difficult it is for a young player who has been a regular all his life to be an extra man now and Bader, who will turn 24 later this week, said, “I’d be lying to you if I said it wasn’t hard. “But this game is about constantly making adjustments. And you have to make adjustments or the game is just going to pass you by.” Facing Vazquez, he perceived he would see a fastball and Bader said, “I got enough on (the swing) to try to muscle it out there. That was a good one. That was a good team effort.” Bader had been nothing for nine with men in scoring posi-

tion, several of those in pinch hit at-bats. Munoz, inheriting the baton, was next and certainly eager to do some damage with the bases loaded. But he merely took his base, forcing his team into the lead. Speaking through the Cardinals’ interpreter, he said, “It wasn’t easy, but I was looking for a specific pitch and (Rivero) didn’t throw it to me.” Carpenter was dumbfounded by the Cardinals not having an unintentional walk until his in the sixth. “It’s unbelievable,” he said. “They didn’t walk a single guy until they walked me? And then they walked four in one inning that cost them. That’s incredible. “Baseball has a funny way of evening out, doesn’t it? What’s the average in a three-game series? You’re probably going to walk nine. And they didn’t have any. But they made up for it in the eighth.” Norris said, “I knew we were going to come back. We had a good talk on the team bus. We were as flat as anything last time we were here. “We’re a better team than that team and we proved it today. Battling back like that with a young team is a big statement for us.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

need them. And they’re here for my wife when I’m on the road, she spends time with them. And they were here to help us get acclimated, advise on places to take our daughter — ‘Oh, take her to the Zoo! And the Science Center!’ They’ve been absolutely incredible.” Randy has two brothers. Stephen Mikolas is Miles’ father and lives in Jupiter, Fla., the home of Cardinals spring training. So Miles grew up there, spending springs watching Cardinals pitchers like the one he would become. And the other brother is Craig — and he just moved to St. Louis with children. Randy has two daughters — Miles’ first cousins — and they have a combined four kids. All in St. Louis. “And then on my mom’s side,” Miles said, “I have one of my cousins here and then some of my mom’s cousins, who are some people I haven’t had a chance to meet yet, just because it’s been so busy.” So far, Miles has been, essentially, the anti-Bob Horner — the former big-leaguer who went to Japan, then signed with the Cards … and stunk. Mikolas has been perhaps the biggest surprise of the National League. Following Sunday’s start at Pittsburgh, Mikolas is 6-0 with a 2.58 ERA and only seven walks all year. And Aunt Randy has been to all of his home starts this season. And her grandchildren come to Busch Stadium to hang out with Miles, who is the Cy Young of “Uncles.” He’s just got one of those infectious personalities. Randy shared two snapshots — one of her two grandsons, ages 7 and 9, hugging Miles like he’s Fredbird. The other is “Uncle Miles” sprawled on the floor, the other kids watching while his 14-month-old daughter crawls on him like he’s a jungle gym. Earlier this season, two of the boys came early for batting practice and stayed all nine innings, even on a school night, because these are the moments the kids will tell their kids about. A former principal of Incarnate Word, Randy is a longtime Cardinals fan — “I don’t think you can live in St. Louis and not be one” — and a longtime Miles Mikolas fan, “ever since eighth grade when he came home and said to my brother — his dad — ‘I didn’t make the baseball team.’ And my brother said to him in a

very kind voice: ‘I guess you’ll have to work harder.’ And that’s always stuck with me, because Miles is really a hard worker. And sometimes things in elementary school or middle school end up impacting your life.” Randy has traveled many miles to see Miles, watching him attack strike zones in numerous time zones. She’s seen Miles on mounds from Jupiter, Fla., to Lake Elsinore, Calif., from Indianapolis to Tokyo. After his 2017 season overseas, Miles readied for a return to the majors. “I would talk to my brother during that time frame,” Randy recalled. “So Miles would have it down to six teams and then four teams and it was surreal even then.” And then came the phone calls she missed that day, while working as a reading specialist at Holy Trinity. “It’s a little bit surreal still,” she said. Randy and the family have a bunch of Cardinals outfits, but “right now, they don’t seem to be making a lot of the jerseys with his name on it. I’ve got a Padres one that says MIKOLAS and one from Japan, but I don’t know if those would be appropriate, so right now I’m just wearing regular Cardinals gear to the stadium.” Here’s thinking that there will be Mikolas jerseys at Busch soon. And here’s thinking a bunch of Mikolases will be wearing them around St. Louis, repping their favorite team, favorite player and favorite uncle. “Miles has been one of those guys who we didn’t know what we were going to get,” Cards manager Mike Matheny said. “But the way that he prepares and competes and the way he is himself, that lends him the best chance to go out and have continued success. … “He is 100 percent comfortable with who he is. He isn’t trying to be anybody else. I think everybody likes to hear about the guys who just have a lot of fun. I think he’s a nice mix. When he’s competing, you see he’s very intense, but even in between, he can be one of those guys who can come in here and be loose — but then get it back dialed in when he’s on the mound. He’s just himself.” Benjamin Hochman @hochman on Twitter bhochman@post-dispatch.com

Justin Rose tees off on the sixth hole during the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational golf tournament at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday. ASSOCIATED PRESS

FORT WORTH, TEXAS • Justin

Rose got his first PGA Tour victory at Jack Nicklaus’ tournament. His latest came after finishing 20 under at Hogan’s Alley, three strokes ahead of defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. “If you are able to win at a course that has great history, has had great champions, and if I begin to look at the courses I’ve won at, this definitely strengthens that group even more,” Rose said after his closing 6-under 64 Sunday in the Fort Worth Invitational. Along with the plaid jacket that comes with winning at Colonial, the longest-running PGA Tour event still played at its original site (since 1946), Rose added to an impressive list of traditional courses where he has won. There was Muirfield Village in the 2010 Memorial, and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion among his nine PGA Tour wins. His 11 international victories include the 2014 Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, and the 2007 Volvo Masters at Valderrama in Spain. “I’m very proud of the places I’ve been able to win,” Rose said. “I’m not saying they suit my game, but happy my game has turned up and I’ve been inspired by some of these great venues.” In the final round at Colonial, where Ben Hogan won five times, Rose stayed aggressive while playing with Koepka even after starting the day with a fourstroke lead. Koepka shot 63 on the way to his sixth runner-up finish in three years. Both of his secondplace finishes this season have been behind Rose, the 37-yearold Englishman and No. 5 player in the world who also won his 2017-18 debut in October at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. “It was very impressive the way he played all day. He never backed off,” Koepka said. “Never really gave an opportunity for anybody to get in there.” Emiliano Grillo had a 64 to finish third at 16 under, his fifth top 10 in 16 starts this season. While Rose missed matching Zach Johnson’s 2010 tournament scoring record of 259 because of a bogey on the 72nd hole, firstround leader Kevin Na matched the course record with a closing 61 and finished fourth at 14 under. Fourth-ranked Jon Rahm shot 68 and was tied for fifth at

10 under with Louis Oosthuizen (68) and Kevin Tway (67). After birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 for the third day in a row, Rose gave up a stroke at the difficult 459yard third when his drive went into a fairway bunker and he hit from there into the rough. Rose got that stroke back with a 23-foot birdie putt at the 474yard fifth hole, the toughest at Colonial, to restore his lead to four over Koepka. Koepka’s highlight shot of the day was a birdie blast out of a greenside bunker at the sixth hole to get to 13 under. But Rose immediately responded by making his 12-foot birdie putt. Rose had a five-stroke lead, his biggest, after a 10-foot birdie at the ninth hole got him to 19 under. “For Brooks to shoot 63 and not win in the final pairing took some doing from me. It was a really fun day to be part of,” Rose said. “Glad that my A-game turned up when I needed it, and I’m glad that I got my mindset right at the start of the day.” Na tapped in for a birdie at the 435-yard 18th hole to match his career-best score and become the seventh PGA Tour golfer with a 9-under round at Colonial — the first since Chad Campbell in the third round in 2004. Na also shot a 61 in the third round of the 2010 Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. After an opening 62 that ended with a 92 foot chip-in from the rough when he ended his first round at No. 9, Na fell back with a 73 in the second round and then shot even par Saturday. “First round I was one out of it. I was thinking one of these days I’m going to get a chance to shoot the course record,” Na said. “I didn’t think it would come on Sunday.” Jordan Spieth made a short birdie at No. 18 on Sunday for a closing 68 to finish 5 under and tied for 32nd at Colonial, where he had a win and two runner-up finishes the past three years. The third-ranked player has played in 20 PGA Tour events since his last win, at the British Open last summer, but feels a good run is coming for him. “Each week is getting a little better,” Spieth said. “I’m getting into where I’m not making bogeys, and then soon — the not making bogeys is great — and soon I’ll get back to the five, six birdies a round and shoot some low rounds. So I know it’s right around the corner.”

GOLF ROUNDUP

BASEBALL NOTEBOOK Hughes traded to Padres as he looks for fresh start

ERA in parts of five seasons with Minnesota.

Broadhurst is winner of Senior PGA with 63

The San Diego Padres acquired pitcher Phil Hughes and $14.5 million from the Minnesota Twins on Sunday for minor-league catcher Janigson Villalobos, hoping the former All-Star can find his form in a new spot. The last-place Padres also got the 74th pick in next month’s draft from Minnesota in the deal. Hughes was designated for assignment last Monday. He was 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA in 12 innings over seven games, two of them starts. Minnesota reached the AL wild-card game last season but has been below .500 for more than a month. “For the Twins to be able to consummate that deal and give Phil an opportunity to get back to pitch, that’s a good thing,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Hughes, who has been slowed by operations in recent years, is making $13.2 million this season and is due to make $13.2 million next year. The Twins sent $14.5 million to the Padres to cover most of the money owed to Hughes. Hughes was 32-29 with a 4.43

Kershaw will return Thursday • Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to return to the rotation Thursday at home against the Phillies. The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner has been on the disabled list nearly a month with left biceps tendinitis. He is 1-4 with a 2.86 ERA this season. Kershaw pitched a four-inning simulated game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday and will take his place in the rotation without making a minor-league rehab start.

Paul Broadhurst shot an 8-under 63 on Sunday to win the Senior PGA Championship by four strokes and match the best 72-hole score in tournament history. The 52-year-old Englishman finished at 19-under 265 at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich., for his second senior major victory. The 63 was the best fourth-round score by a winner. Rocco Mediate also shot 19 under at Harbor Shores in 2016. Also the 2016 British Senior Open winner, Broadhurst led the field with 26 birdies and passed third-round leaders Tim Petrovic and Mark McCarron with a 4-under 31 on the back nine.

Mets’ Ramos gets shoulder checked • Right shoulder tightness might be a reason behind Mets reliever AJ Ramos’ recent struggles. Ramos traveled back to New York on Sunday to be seen by a doctor. The righthander told the club about the tightness after allowing three runs and three hits while getting just two outs in a 17-6 loss Saturday to the Milwaukee Brewers, assistant general manager John Ricco said. Associated Press

Molinari goes bogey-free for BMW win • Francesco Molinari completed a bogey-free weekend at Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, England, and closed with a 4-under 68 to win the BMW PGA Championship by two shots over Rory McIlroy in a duel that never developed. McIlroy, who led by three strokes after 36 holes, entered the final round tied for the lead with

Molinari. He didn’t make his first birdie until the eighth hole, and by then Molinari already was two shots ahead. McIlroy fell four shots behind through 10 holes, and only a birdiebirdie finish for a 70 made it look closer than it was. Molinari won for the fifth time in his career and celebrated his biggest title since beating Lee Westwood in a World Golf Championship in Shanghai in 2010. The victory moved Molinari into one of the automatic qualifying spots for the Ryder Cup. Lee wins LPGA Volvik on her birthday • Minjee Lee of Australia birdied the 18th hole to close with a 4-under 68 and win the LPGA Volvik Championship in Ann Arbor, Mich., by one shot over I.K. Kim. It was Lee’s fourth career victory, and her first since 2016. She turned 22 on Sunday. Kim shot a 32 on the back nine and birdied No. 18, but it wasn’t enough to force a playoff. Lee lost this event by one stroke last year. Shanshan Feng, the 2017 winner, finished tied for 21st this time. Associated Press

need them. And they’re here for my wife when I’m on the road, she spends time with them. And they were here to help us get acclimated, advise on places to take our daughter — ‘Oh, take her to the Zoo! And the Science Center!’ They’ve been absolutely incredible.” Randy has two brothers. Stephen Mikolas is Miles’ father and lives in Jupiter, Fla., the home of Cardinals spring training. So Miles grew up there, spending springs watching Cardinals pitchers like the one he would become. And the other brother is Craig — and he just moved to St. Louis with children. Randy has two daughters — Miles’ first cousins — and they have a combined four kids. All in St. Louis. “And then on my mom’s side,” Miles said, “I have one of my cousins here and then some of my mom’s cousins, who are some people I haven’t had a chance to meet yet, just because it’s been so busy.” So far, Miles has been, essentially, the anti-Bob Horner — the former big-leaguer who went to Japan, then signed with the Cards … and stunk. Mikolas has been perhaps the biggest surprise of the National League. Following Sunday’s start at Pittsburgh, Mikolas is 6-0 with a 2.58 ERA and only seven walks all year. And Aunt Randy has been to all of his home starts this season. And her grandchildren come to Busch Stadium to hang out with Miles, who is the Cy Young of “Uncles.” He’s just got one of those infectious personalities. Randy shared two snapshots — one of her two grandsons, ages 7 and 9, hugging Miles like he’s Fredbird. The other is “Uncle Miles” sprawled on the floor, the other kids watching while his 14-month-old daughter crawls on him like he’s a jungle gym. Earlier this season, two of the boys came early for batting practice and stayed all nine innings, even on a school night, because these are the moments the kids will tell their kids about. A former principal of Incarnate Word, Randy is a longtime Cardinals fan — “I don’t think you can live in St. Louis and not be one” — and a longtime Miles Mikolas fan, “ever since eighth grade when he came home and said to my brother — his dad — ‘I didn’t make the baseball team.’ And my brother said to him in a

very kind voice: ‘I guess you’ll have to work harder.’ And that’s always stuck with me, because Miles is really a hard worker. And sometimes things in elementary school or middle school end up impacting your life.” Randy has traveled many miles to see Miles, watching him attack strike zones in numerous time zones. She’s seen Miles on mounds from Jupiter, Fla., to Lake Elsinore, Calif., from Indianapolis to Tokyo. After his 2017 season overseas, Miles readied for a return to the majors. “I would talk to my brother during that time frame,” Randy recalled. “So Miles would have it down to six teams and then four teams and it was surreal even then.” And then came the phone calls she missed that day, while working as a reading specialist at Holy Trinity. “It’s a little bit surreal still,” she said. Randy and the family have a bunch of Cardinals outfits, but “right now, they don’t seem to be making a lot of the jerseys with his name on it. I’ve got a Padres one that says MIKOLAS and one from Japan, but I don’t know if those would be appropriate, so right now I’m just wearing regular Cardinals gear to the stadium.” Here’s thinking that there will be Mikolas jerseys at Busch soon. And here’s thinking a bunch of Mikolases will be wearing them around St. Louis, repping their favorite team, favorite player and favorite uncle. “Miles has been one of those guys who we didn’t know what we were going to get,” Cards manager Mike Matheny said. “But the way that he prepares and competes and the way he is himself, that lends him the best chance to go out and have continued success. … “He is 100 percent comfortable with who he is. He isn’t trying to be anybody else. I think everybody likes to hear about the guys who just have a lot of fun. I think he’s a nice mix. When he’s competing, you see he’s very intense, but even in between, he can be one of those guys who can come in here and be loose — but then get it back dialed in when he’s on the mound. He’s just himself.” Benjamin Hochman @hochman on Twitter bhochman@post-dispatch.com

FORT WORTH, TEXAS • Justin

Rose got his first PGA Tour victory at Jack Nicklaus’ tournament. His latest came after finishing 20 under at Hogan’s Alley, three strokes ahead of defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. “If you are able to win at a course that has great history, has had great champions, and if I begin to look at the courses I’ve won at, this definitely strengthens that group even more,” Rose said after his closing 6-under 64 Sunday in the Fort Worth Invitational. Along with the plaid jacket that comes with winning at Colonial, the longest-running PGA Tour event still played at its original site (since 1946), Rose added to an impressive list of traditional courses where he has won. There was Muirfield Village in the 2010 Memorial, and the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion among his nine PGA Tour wins. His 11 international victories include the 2014 Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, and the 2007 Volvo Masters at Valderrama in Spain. “I’m very proud of the places I’ve been able to win,” Rose said. “I’m not saying they suit my game, but happy my game has turned up and I’ve been inspired by some of these great venues.” In the final round at Colonial, where Ben Hogan won five times, Rose stayed aggressive while playing with Koepka even after starting the day with a fourstroke lead. Koepka shot 63 on the way to his sixth runner-up finish in three years. Both of his secondplace finishes this season have been behind Rose, the 37-yearold Englishman and No. 5 player in the world who also won his 2017-18 debut in October at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. “It was very impressive the way he played all day. He never backed off,” Koepka said. “Never really gave an opportunity for anybody to get in there.” Emiliano Grillo had a 64 to finish third at 16 under, his fifth top 10 in 16 starts this season. While Rose missed matching Zach Johnson’s 2010 tournament scoring record of 259 because of a bogey on the 72nd hole, firstround leader Kevin Na matched the course record with a closing 61 and finished fourth at 14 under. Fourth-ranked Jon Rahm shot 68 and was tied for fifth at

10 under with Louis Oosthuizen (68) and Kevin Tway (67). After birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 for the third day in a row, Rose gave up a stroke at the difficult 459yard third when his drive went into a fairway bunker and he hit from there into the rough. Rose got that stroke back with a 23-foot birdie putt at the 474yard fifth hole, the toughest at Colonial, to restore his lead to four over Koepka. Koepka’s highlight shot of the day was a birdie blast out of a greenside bunker at the sixth hole to get to 13 under. But Rose immediately responded by making his 12-foot birdie putt. Rose had a five-stroke lead, his biggest, after a 10-foot birdie at the ninth hole got him to 19 under. “For Brooks to shoot 63 and not win in the final pairing took some doing from me. It was a really fun day to be part of,” Rose said. “Glad that my A-game turned up when I needed it, and I’m glad that I got my mindset right at the start of the day.” Na tapped in for a birdie at the 435-yard 18th hole to match his career-best score and become the seventh PGA Tour golfer with a 9-under round at Colonial — the first since Chad Campbell in the third round in 2004. Na also shot a 61 in the third round of the 2010 Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C. After an opening 62 that ended with a 92 foot chip-in from the rough when he ended his first round at No. 9, Na fell back with a 73 in the second round and then shot even par Saturday. “First round I was one out of it. I was thinking one of these days I’m going to get a chance to shoot the course record,” Na said. “I didn’t think it would come on Sunday.” Jordan Spieth made a short birdie at No. 18 on Sunday for a closing 68 to finish 5 under and tied for 32nd at Colonial, where he had a win and two runner-up finishes the past three years. The third-ranked player has played in 20 PGA Tour events since his last win, at the British Open last summer, but feels a good run is coming for him. “Each week is getting a little better,” Spieth said. “I’m getting into where I’m not making bogeys, and then soon — the not making bogeys is great — and soon I’ll get back to the five, six birdies a round and shoot some low rounds. So I know it’s right around the corner.”

GOLF ROUNDUP

BASEBALL NOTEBOOK Hughes traded to Padres as he looks for fresh start

ERA in parts of five seasons with Minnesota.

Broadhurst is winner of Senior PGA with 63

The San Diego Padres acquired pitcher Phil Hughes and $14.5 million from the Minnesota Twins on Sunday for minor-league catcher Janigson Villalobos, hoping the former All-Star can find his form in a new spot. The last-place Padres also got the 74th pick in next month’s draft from Minnesota in the deal. Hughes was designated for assignment last Monday. He was 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA in 12 innings over seven games, two of them starts. Minnesota reached the AL wild-card game last season but has been below .500 for more than a month. “For the Twins to be able to consummate that deal and give Phil an opportunity to get back to pitch, that’s a good thing,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. Hughes, who has been slowed by operations in recent years, is making $13.2 million this season and is due to make $13.2 million next year. The Twins sent $14.5 million to the Padres to cover most of the money owed to Hughes. Hughes was 32-29 with a 4.43

Kershaw will return Thursday • Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to return to the rotation Thursday at home against the Phillies. The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner has been on the disabled list nearly a month with left biceps tendinitis. He is 1-4 with a 2.86 ERA this season. Kershaw pitched a four-inning simulated game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday and will take his place in the rotation without making a minor-league rehab start.

Paul Broadhurst shot an 8-under 63 on Sunday to win the Senior PGA Championship by four strokes and match the best 72-hole score in tournament history. The 52-year-old Englishman finished at 19-under 265 at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich., for his second senior major victory. The 63 was the best fourth-round score by a winner. Rocco Mediate also shot 19 under at Harbor Shores in 2016. Also the 2016 British Senior Open winner, Broadhurst led the field with 26 birdies and passed third-round leaders Tim Petrovic and Mark McCarron with a 4-under 31 on the back nine.

Mets’ Ramos gets shoulder checked • Right shoulder tightness might be a reason behind Mets reliever AJ Ramos’ recent struggles. Ramos traveled back to New York on Sunday to be seen by a doctor. The righthander told the club about the tightness after allowing three runs and three hits while getting just two outs in a 17-6 loss Saturday to the Milwaukee Brewers, assistant general manager John Ricco said. Associated Press

Molinari goes bogey-free for BMW win • Francesco Molinari completed a bogey-free weekend at Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, England, and closed with a 4-under 68 to win the BMW PGA Championship by two shots over Rory McIlroy in a duel that never developed. McIlroy, who led by three strokes after 36 holes, entered the final round tied for the lead with

Molinari. He didn’t make his first birdie until the eighth hole, and by then Molinari already was two shots ahead. McIlroy fell four shots behind through 10 holes, and only a birdiebirdie finish for a 70 made it look closer than it was. Molinari won for the fifth time in his career and celebrated his biggest title since beating Lee Westwood in a World Golf Championship in Shanghai in 2010. The victory moved Molinari into one of the automatic qualifying spots for the Ryder Cup. Lee wins LPGA Volvik on her birthday • Minjee Lee of Australia birdied the 18th hole to close with a 4-under 68 and win the LPGA Volvik Championship in Ann Arbor, Mich., by one shot over I.K. Kim. It was Lee’s fourth career victory, and her first since 2016. She turned 22 on Sunday. Kim shot a 32 on the back nine and birdied No. 18, but it wasn’t enough to force a playoff. Lee lost this event by one stroke last year. Shanshan Feng, the 2017 winner, finished tied for 21st this time. Associated Press

with 6:41 left — and stared down the Cavaliers star and bumped him with his chest — and then followed it with a 3-pointer that gave the Celtics a 72-71 lead. But that would be Boston’s last basket for more than five minutes while Cleveland went on a 15-2 run to put the game away. James and Horford embraced after the buzzer, then the Cavaliers donned NBA Finals hats and Eastern conference championship shirts before shuffling off the court to receive their trophy. It’s not the one they want. James has been in the finals every year since 2011 — four with Miami, and now four straight with Cleveland. This might be his weakest supporting cast. He had to do it without Kevin Love — Cleveland’s only other All-Star — who sustained a concussion in Game 6 and was replaced in the lineup by Jeff Green. Making his first start since the first-round opener against Indiana, Green scored 19 points and added eight rebounds — the star of James’ starless supporting cast. The Celtics have had more time to get used to their injuries: Gordon Hayward has been out since the first game of the season, and Kyrie Irving has been sidelined since March. With the rookie Tatum and second-year Jaylen Brown, Boston established itself as the team of the future in the East. But the present still belongs to James. And, for now, that means Cleveland, too.

points in the first half, and they had a 51-47 lead midway through the third quarter when James hit a long 3-pointer and then Green made a 3 of his own. James hit Tristan Thompson for an alleyoop to give Cleveland a 55-51 lead, but then James threw the ball away and sent Terry Rozier off on a fast break. James tracked the Celtics guard from the far sideline, timing his attack. When Rozier went up for the lay-in, James blocked it off the backboard and right to Green. James did not run back down the court, resting up while Green drew a foul at the other end and made one free throw to give the Cavaliers their biggest lead of the game.

was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible and try to be as good as we can on everybody else,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “For the most part, I thought we were pretty good at that ... but he still scored 35. It’s a joke.” For the would-be free agent, the victory postponed a decision about his future until next month. Now, the only question is who the Cavaliers will play for a chance at their second title in three years: The Rockets host Game 7 of the Western Conference finals against Golden State on Monday night, and the winner will host the opener of the NBA Finals on Thursday. Jayson Tatum scored 24 points, Al Horford had 17 and Marcus Morris added 14 points with 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who were looking to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010. They had been a perfect 10-0 at home this postseason. Tatum had a dunk over James with 6:41 left — staring down the Cavaliers star and bumping him with his chest — then followed it with a 3-pointer that gave the Celtics a 72-71 lead. But that would be Boston’s last basket for more than five minutes while Cleveland went on a 15-2 run to put the game away. James embraced Horford and Tatum after the buzzer, then the Cavaliers donned celebratory hats and T-shirts before receiving the Eastern Conference championship trophy. It’s not the one they want. James has been in the finals every year since 2011 — four with Miami, and now four straight with Cleveland. This might be his weakest supporting cast. He

had to do it without Kevin Love — Cleveland’s only other all-star — who sustained a concussion in Game 6 and was replaced in the lineup by Jeff Green. Making his first start since the first-round opener against Indiana, Green scored 19 points and added eight rebounds — the star of James’ starless supporting cast. “We said we want to do this for Kevin,” Lue said. “Kevin wanted to play, to be in a Game 7 situation like this in the Eastern Conference Finals, being an All-Star, being our second-best player, and he just wasn’t able to go. The guys picked him up, so now he has another chance when we get to the finals to be ready.” The Celtics have had more time to get used to their injuries: Gordon Hayward has been out since the first game of the season, and Kyrie Irving has been sidelined since March.

Say Goodbye to Erectile Dysfunction Erectile Dysfunction is a result of poor blood flow to the penis. Due to the narrowing of blood vessels, some men find it difficult to get and/or keep an erection. Temporary solutions like pills and needles may not be fully effective for some men. At STL Medical Solutions, we offer a breakthrough, evidence-based approach that treats the root cause of ED – called Acoustic Wave Therapy. It’s FDA cleared and uses low intensity sound waves to help open new blood vessels and stimulate nerve endings in the penis.* The Therapeutic Advances in Urology Journal concluded that “Acoustic Wave Therapy is a revolutionary treatment of ED and can rehabilitate erectile tissue.” “At age 84 it had been 10 years since I had an erection and no medications worked for me. With SwissWave, my spontaneous erections have returned.” ~ Joe R.

How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works:

Before: As men age, the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis begin to breakdown or collapse. Natural or drug induced blood flow cannot enter into the penis, thus creating ED. After: Acoustic Wave Therapy opens exisiting blood vessels and stimulates growth of new blood vessels. As a result, patients experience much stronger, firmer and more sustainable erections.

DEAR ABBY

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

Old friend vents about her husband Dear Moving • I don’t think you should “confront” Grace either, but avoiding her isn’t the answer. Have an honest, non-confrontational talk with her. Tell her you are concerned that she is so unhappy. Explain that the amount of venting she’s doing is creating a wedge between you, and she needs to make some important decisions about her life and her marriage. I don’t know how economically dependent Grace is on her husband, but it might help her selfesteem to find a job. If she’s unable or unwilling to do that, she’ll have to decide if this is how she wants to spend the rest of her life or discuss her options with an attorney. Dear Abby • I have Tourette’s syndrome, the type that causes coughing, among other things. There are different triggers that cause the coughing to start, and one of them is the smell of mowed grass. This means that I cannot mow the grass where I live. A lot of my family members think that

I should do it anyway. They probably think I’m lazy, as I still live with my mother and can’t afford to move out right now. I’m tired of constantly repeating that I can’t mow the grass. They know of my problem, but seem oblivious. I do plenty of work around the house. What am I supposed to say or do when this comes up again? I’m considering just walking away from them. I’m tired of all these people who refuse to understand that I have a real problem. — COUGH, COUGH IN ILLINOIS Dear Cough • Ask your doctor to write you a letter explaining your medical problem, so you can share it with the relatives who seem unable to believe you have one. I can’t guarantee it will completely solve your problem, but it may silence most of them. As to the rest, tune them out.

TV MONDAY

CAROLYN HAX

Once a cheater, always a cheater? Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn • Is it really true that “once a cheater always a cheater,” even when the cheater didn’t cheat on you? A few years ago, I left my husband after I found out he was a serial cheater. We are now divorced. I have been seeing someone new, and he seems like a great guy. However, he is also divorced, and it’s because he cheated on his ex-wife. He was very honest with me about this. He did not attempt to lie about or hide it. Instead of making up an excuse for what he did, like, “She didn’t do the dishes when I asked, and if she really loved me she would have, so she deserved it” (which was literally one of the reasons my ex-husband gave for why he cheated), he told me he had “made a mistake” and that he re-

gretted it. Our relationship is otherwise fantastic and I don’t want to miss out on what could be something great just because of my own hang-ups. But in the back of my mind I can’t help but think, “He did it to her, what’s to stop him from doing it to me?” — Dating an Ex-Cheater Answer • Having paid a heavy emotional price for cheating could deter him (or anyone) from ever cheating again. But that’s just speculation about what he could be thinking, and therefore it’s somewhat remote. It’ll be more persuasive if you can come to an understanding based on your own emotional experience. As an adult human being, you’ve probably done at least one terrible thing in your life. Right? OK. Have you done this terrible thing more than once? Have you

Differences: 1. Arm is lower. 2. Woman is moved. 3. Cap is larger. 4. Putter is missing. 5. Window is different. 6. Nose is smaller.

Dear Abby • I lost my husband of 45 years three years ago. My longtime friend, “Grace,” was very supportive and included me in family dinners and outings so I wouldn’t be alone. A year ago, I moved away to start a new life for myself. Grace still lives in the same town and is still married to a verbally abusive, depressed husband. She told me once that she envied my freedom, but not how I got it. I have met a wonderful man. We are in love and will see where it goes. When I talk to or see Grace, she never asks about my life or what I am doing. She vents at length about her husband, her marriage and other things in her life. I think she liked it when I was miserable, too. Now that I’m happy, I don’t really want to see Grace anymore. She’s using me as someone she can unload on, and in my opinion, that’s not friendly. What should I do? Keep avoiding her? I don’t want to confront her, but if I need to, I would like to do it in the best way. — MOVING ON

done it more than once because the mere fact of your being capable of it once means you’ll never stop yourself from doing it again? For some reason, the question I get asked over and over again is whether a onetime cheater is always a cheater; I’m not asked to parse “Once a backstabber always a backstabber,” “Once a curfewbreaker always a curfew-breaker,” “Once an opportunist always an opportunist,” “Once a person who cuts out early on Friday always a person who cuts out early on Friday.” Might be interesting, but never happens. People grow and change and learn — or, they don’t. Whether this guy you’re interested in is from Group A or Group B is something you need to figure out for yourself, using his words and deeds and using your judgment. tellme@washpost.com

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Parkinson’s can cause unusual breathing issue Dear Dr. Roach • My husband has Parkinson’s disease. He also has a stent in his heart. We have been to many doctors to address a breathing problem: fast breathing. He experiences this daily, and we are told that it is anxiety. It is difficult to watch him go through this. It sometimes happens before he is due for his Sinemet, but other times right after taking it. He has been prescribed Xanax, clonidine, cannabidiol-infused gummies and a few others. One doctor says it is from Parkinson’s, but the rest say it is anxiety. — E.W.

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

Answer • Shortness of breath can have many causes, but someone with Parkinson’s disease has an unusual possibility, called “respiratory dyskinesia.” This is an involuntary rapid breathing that causes distress, and it usually happens an hour after taking a medication like Sinemet. Changing the dose can help with diagnosis, and working with a neurologist to adjust the dose of the Sinemet can solve the problem. I would start with an expert on Parkinson’s. Keeping a diary of when he takes his medication and when the breathing trouble starts and stops will be helpful, as would a video of what it looks like when happening. Having Parkinson’s doesn’t make someone less likely to have other causes of shortness of breath, and anyone with a stent in the heart (meaning a history of blockages of at least one heart artery) is at risk of developing further blockages. Poor blood flow to the heart is another potential cause. Get the Parkinson’s evaluation first. I would not recommend taking anti-anxiety medications unless there is clear evidence of benefit.

INTELLIGENT LIFE • By David Reddick

Dear Dr. Roach • As a winemaker, I get my daily (small) dose of resveratrol through red wine. I drink about a half bottle daily. But I also take resveratrol supplements. What is the latest evidence as to the health benefits of this natural polyphenol? Am I ingesting too much? — G.G.

DRABBLE • By Kevin Fagan

Answer • Resveratrol is a substance found in red wine, coming from grape skins. One study in rats showed that it improved lifespan, and many people were interested in it. However, the dose of red wine needed to duplicate the study would be about 1,000 liters daily for a human; worse, a trial of resveratrol (in people with multiple myeloma) showed no benefit, and five of the 24 subjects developed kidney failure. It’s not the resveratrol I’m worried about your getting too much of; it’s alcohol. A half a bottle of wine for an average-size man is two and a half glasses, which contains alcohol that is over the level of most recommendations.
