Businesses could learn from church baptisms and funeral Masses. I was at such a Mass Wednesday. We celebrated the life of Martin Duggan. The Mass was held on what would have been his 94th birthday. I was in the very back row of the chapel, looking at the backs of the heads of the other celebrants. There was an ancient sense to the ritual, and I pretended I was sitting with Romans. “So this is how they wore their hair,” I said to myself, as if I were time traveling. In a way, I was. The ritual is probably little changed since the days of the Roman Empire. Why should it change? It brought comfort to the family. Duggan was a devout man, and his family seems to have followed him in faith. My people came from Ulster. We were Orangemen, and as members of the Orange Order, my ancestors vowed to oppose popery in all its forms. That vow did not travel well to the New World. We became lukewarm Protestants. When my father died in Florida 30 years ago, he had no church. Still, I thought it would be nice to have a service in case anybody wanted to pay their respects. I went to a nearby Protestant church — I forget the denomination — and asked the minister to hold a short service. I gave him a $100 bill. “Is this for me or the organist?” he

BILL McCLELLAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Although my children’s religious life fell entirely within the province of my wife, I attended the confirmation of both kids. They were confirmed at St. Francis Xavier Church, which is more commonly called College Church because of its proximity to St. Louis University. Auxiliary Bishop Edward Braxton did the honors for my daughter’s class. He was a showman with an intimidating presence. He intentionally asked the children questions they had not studied. “We are in Xavier Church. Who is Xavier?” he thundered, and he called on a child who looked befuddled. “Uh, uh, uh,” said the child. It was great theater. Auxiliary Bishop Tim Dolan presided at my son’s confirmation. He was as warm as Braxton was intimidating. He stuck to the script and asked children questions for which they had studied. I was mildly disappointed, but everybody else thought Dolan did a splendid job. That has been pretty much my entire experience with the Roman Catholic church, unless CYC soccer games count. Perhaps they should. Also, weddings,

asked. So we went without an organist. The service was neither ancient nor comforting, but it was brief. Of course, there are Protestant churches that put on terrific funerals. I remember listening to the Rev. E.H. Truman of the Leonard Missionary Baptist Church on North Grand Boulevard. He talked about playing in a cemetery when he was a kid. He said he noticed that all the tombstones had two dates. In between those dates was a dash. “Do you know how to make a dash on a typewriter?” he asked, and he jabbed a finger at the congregation. “A dash is just a peck.” The organist did a little jazz rif, and the Rev. Truman watched him, nodding in approval, before turning back to the congregation. “Do you hear what I’m saying, brothers and sisters? Life is just a peck.” That was a terrific homily, but that kind of service depends upon a gifted speaker. Speakers can have of days. Ancient rituals are steady. I’ve learned to appreciate the rituals, and the Roman Catholic Church. In fact, if I were running a business school, I would make students take a course on the church. It is, after all, the longest-running business in history. It has been in operation for more than 2,000 years.

McCulloch backs disbanding of Wellston police, but has concerns BY KIM BELL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WELLSTON • St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch, the county’s top law enforcement oicer, says he was glad to see Wellston disband its police force this week, but he has concerns about whether the small department now patrolling Wellston is up to the task. “Wellston disbanding is a good thing,” McCulloch said in an interview. “They couldn’t aford efective law enforcement, not when the officers are making $14 an hour ... and have to buy their own ammunition.” Vinita Park police took over patrols in Wellston on Monday night, immediately after the Wellston City Council voted to dissolve the city’s police department. Wellston Mayor Nate Griin said the move was motivated by the need to cut spending for the cash-strapped city. Wellston abandoned its police force once before, in 1992, for financial reasons. It contracted with St. Louis County to provide policing then, but the two sides parted ways angrily three years later. St. Louis County ended up filing suit against Wellston to try to recoup more than $700,000 it said Wellston owed for county-provided police services. With that kind of history in Wellston, McCulloch said he wonders if Vinita Park knows what’s ahead. Vinita Park formed the new North County Police Cooperative through the takeover of policing in Wellston. A contract calls for Wellston to pay Vinita Park $610,000 for each of the first two years and $560,000 the third. Neither city can walk away from the deal in the first nine months of the contract. “If Wellston quits paying, then what?” McCulloch asked. “Does Vinita Park stop providing police services?” McCulloch said he had “zero contact”

with Vinita Park Police Chief Tim Swope before the takeover. And McCulloch said neither he nor County Police Chief Jon Belmar was consulted about the newly formed North County Police Cooperative, unveiled Tuesday by Swope and Vinita Park Mayor James McGee. McCulloch said the county police department and prosecutor’s oice should have been consulted first about terms of the contract. Belmar said county police had “informal conversations” recently about taking over policing Wellston but decided Wellston couldn’t aford it. Belmar said, in order to do it right, Wellston needs two patrol cars with two oicers in each car at all times. Belmar said Wellston disbanding its force was “a long time coming.” “Something needed to happen,” Belmar said. “A lot of folks realized that.” But Belmar said he doesn’t know what to make of the North County cooperative. He said it’s too early to tell whether it will provide needed stability. St. Louis County patrols unincorporated areas and 18 municipalities under contract. It provides other services — from dispatching to record keeping — to another 50 or so cities. Vinita Park oicials said they would like the new cooperative to take over policing in other cities but wouldn’t say which ones. Vinita Park will also take over policing the tiny nearby community of Vinita Terrace starting July 1. According to the three-year contract, Vinita Terrace will pay Vinita Park $87,000 per year, which also includes snow removal and street sweeping services. The contract also promises a “manned or unmanned’ traic enforcement program. Joel Currier of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

WHAT’S UP HEADS UP WINDOW SAFETY On mild spring and summer days and nights, it’s tempting to fling open the windows to bring in the fresh air. If you have small children, make sure they remain safe around open windows. Safety experts give this advice: • Window screens aren’t designed to prevent a child from possibly falling out of an open window. • Double-hung windows should be opened at the top, if possible, rather than at the bottom. • Furniture should be arranged away from windows to discourage children from climbing near windows. Pay special attention to windows near window seats where children may like to play. • Window guards or window stops can provide an extra layer of safety. They come in a range of sizes and adjustable for width, featuring bars spaced no more than 4 inches apart. To submit items, email them to headsup@post-dispatch. com or fax them to 314-340-3050.

Think of the dramatic changes in society in the last 20 centuries, and yet the church remains. It has a remarkable ability to adapt. When Mussolini joined forces with Hitler, the church did not have to go into exile. It stayed in Rome. It has gone from opposing science to coexisting with science. Priests no longer conduct services only in Latin. The faithful can now eat meat on Friday, although fish fries during Lent remain a cornerstone of community within a parish. The changes have been dramatic, but essentially cosmetic. Church leaders never tried to introduce New Coke. The ancient recipe endures. Business students could also learn a lot from the way the church picks its leader. The cardinals gather, hash things out and pick one of their own to lead the church. Corporations, on the other hand, generally hire a consulting firm to conduct a talent search. These firms generally pick outsiders who know how to ace an interview. I’ve seen the results here at the newspaper. Some of the results have been catastrophic. No wonder corporations have a shelf life of less than 2,000 years. Theology aside, the Roman Catholic Church knows how to run a business.

ST. LOUIS • An assistant circuit attorney in St. Louis has been arrested and suspended as part of an investigation of an alleged incident at a downtown bar, the Post-Dispatch has learned. Steve Roberts Jr., 27, was arrested April 24 on suspicion of seconddegree sodomy involving a student, 25, on April 16, police records show. Charges have not yet been filed. A spokeswoman for the St. Charles County prosecutor said the case was being reviewed there to avoid a conflict. The records say Roberts and the alleged victim were strangers. He started in the prosecutor’s office on Oct. 14, and has not appeared recently in court. Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce’s oice declined to provide any information about his status, except to say he earns $44,000 a year. Roberts’ lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, said prosecutors are only examining the possibility of a misdemeanor charge, “and we’re

confident that once that investigation is completed there will be no further action and no charges.” Rosenblum said Roberts has been suspended with pay but hopes to return. “He has done absolutely nothing wrong and he wants to continue with his career,” the lawyer said. Roberts is the son of developer and former St. Louis alderman Steve Roberts. Asked about an allegation that the incident involved misconduct with a St. Louis University law school student, Rosenblum replied: “He vehemently denies that ever took place.” A spokeswoman for the law school said federal law bans commenting on issues relating to students. Tim Quinn, manager of the Side Bar, at 1317 Washington Avenue, said police had contacted him about whether there were surveillance cameras there, but were vague about the allegations. He said police implied it involved some sort of allegation of “sexual harassment.” The bar does not have video cameras, and staff didn’t remember any incident, Quinn told police.

Man accused of molesting two girls dies of lung cancer

ST. LOUIS • A former hu-

man resources director for the city police, who later worked as a ranger for the St. Louis Zoo, has died with charges of child molestation and rape pending against him. Prosecutors charged Larry Brockelsby, 73, of the first block of Walton Court in O’Fallon, Mo., in May with rape, statutory sodomy, child molestation and statutory rape. His attorney, James Towey, said his client died Thursday morning of lung cancer. In an email, Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce’s spokeswoman, Lauren Trager, said, “Upon receipt of the death certificate, prosecutors will file an Abatement by Death motion, which will close the case.” The charges allege that Brockelsby attacked two underage girls in 2003 and 2006 when he lived in the 6500 block of Murdoch Avenue in St. Louis. The street is known as “Candy Cane Lane” for its extravagant Christmas decorations. Court documents say Brockelsby was a longtime

neighbor of the girls a n d f re quently invited children from the neighBrockelsby borhood to his house to play in his backyard and alley. One of the victims told police that Brockelsby raped her in the alley behind his garage. The other said that on two separate occasions, Brockelsby molested her in his basement. Brockelsby held civilian jobs with the police department from September 1985 through December 2009. For the first three years, he was director of the police academy; he worked the rest of his time as director of human resources. He was with the zoo for six years, ending in March, oicials there said. He had been in police custody, almost entirely in a hospital, since charges were filed against him, Towey said. His cash-only bail had been set at $150,000. Christine Byers • 314-340-8087 @christinedbyers on Twitter cbyers@post-dispatch.com

the rocks, it seemed the young polar bear experienced a little stage fright before his first interaction with visitors and headed back toward his cage. Without the bear visible behind the viewing glass, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Associate Director Robert Dreher continued with the news conference presenting Kali and his new home. Dreher praised the zoo’s efforts acquiring the bear and called Thursday an important moment for the zoo and wildlife conservation. Then, Kali made a big splash behind the glass. Launching himself off the rocks, Kali dove into the pool and began to swim. The crowd laughed. Dreher paused and looked behind him. “He’s a clown, isn’t he?” Dreher said. Thursday’s preview of Kali and the $16 million, 40,000-squarefoot McDonnell Polar Bear Point was for the media, along with donors and others involved with bringing the bear to St. Louis. Zoo visitors will get their first chance to see Kali on Saturday. Kali lived at the Bufalo Zoo for the last two years after being orphaned in Alaska in 2013. The St.

Located near the Penguin & Puin Coast, Kali’s new home is a state-of-the-art facility. The exhibit offers land and coast areas along with a 50,000-gallon “sea.” Kali can even interact with a machine that produces ice. Kali is the zoo’s first polar bear since 2009. Churchill the polar

bear died in May 2005 during surgery to remove foreign items in his stomach. Several weeks later, an infection from two dead fetuses killed Penny, a female bear. Finally, in March 2009, the 23-year-old Hope, was euthanized after a large liver tumor was discovered. She was the zoo’s last polar bear. The new home replaces the zoo’s nearly 90-year-old polar bear pits and includes protections around the bear, keeping the creature away from health hazards such as plastic bags. Kali’s new

nepotism law. Now back in oice after the election last November, Carpenter has requested a new city vehicle or a $700-permonth car allowance, spurring a debate over the necessity of elected officials having takehome cars during a time of budget constraints. The city is proposing to voters a $180 million bond issue on the August ballot to pay for infrastructure and equipment, including vehicle replacements. The Post-Dispatch requested all accident reports over the last five years for incidents related to vehicles assigned to elected officials. The city turned over the two incidents involving Carpenter’s car, and another involving

former Treasurer Larry Williams, who wasn’t found to be at fault for a 2012 accident in his 2009 city-issued Mercury Grand Marquis. Robert Carpenter’s accidents both involved hitting parked cars. One occurred on May 5, 2012, in the parking lot of the St. Louis Bread Co. on Chippewa Avenue. The other was reported on Sept. 28, 2012, in the parking lot of a Walgreens on Hampton Avenue. The city paid $616.56 for the first accident, according to records. A $1,300.62 payout was made for the second. Documents simply say the latter was paid by “Recorder of Deeds.” Sharon Carpenter didn’t return calls to her oice requesting comment.

The documents show she wasn’t in the vehicle but say she was notified of the incidents shortly after they occurred. Carpenter made headlines last year when she resigned from her oice because she had hired her great-nephew in violation of the state’s nepotism statute. The only penalty for violating the law is for the oiceholder to vacate the office. Still, Carpenter remained on the November ballot and soundly defeated her appointed replacement, former Alderman Jennifer Florida, in the November election. Florida gave up Carpenter’s assigned vehicle during her short term of service, and it was put back into the city’s vehicle fleet. After Carpenter returned to office, she wrote a letter to the

The hackers were believed to be based in China, said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. Collins, a member of the Senate intelligence committee, said the breach was “yet another indication of a foreign power probing successfully and focusing on what appears to be data that would identify people with security clearances.” A U.S. oicial, who declined to be named, said it could potentially afect every federal agency. One key question is whether intelligence agency employee information was stolen. Former government employees are affected as well. “This is an attack against the nation,” said Ken Ammon, chief strategy officer of Xceedium, a network security software company. He said the attack fit the pattern of those carried out by nation states for the purpose of espionage. The information stolen could be used to impersonate or blackmail federal employees with access to sensitive information, he said. The Office of Personnel Management is the human resources department for the federal gov-

ernment, and it conducts background checks for security clearances. The OPM conducts more than 90 percent of federal background investigations, according to its website. The agency said it is offering credit monitoring and identity theft insurance for 18 months to individuals potentially affected. The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents workers in 31 federal agencies, said it is encouraging members to sign up for the monitoring as soon as possible. In November, a former DHS contractor disclosed another cyberbreach that compromised the private files of more than 25,000 DHS workers and thousands of other federal employees. Cybersecurity experts also noted that the OPM was targeted a year ago in a cyberattack that was suspected of originating in China. In that case, authorities reported no personal information was stolen. One expert said it’s possible that hackers could use information from government personnel files for financial gain. In a recent case disclosed by the IRS, hackers appear to have obtained tax return information by posing as taxpay-

ers, using personal information gleaned from previous commercial breaches, said Rick Holland, an information security analyst at Forrester Research. “Given what OPM does around security clearances, and the level of detail they acquire when doing these investigations, both on the subjects of the investigations and their contacts and references, it would be a vast amount of information,” Holland added. The DHS said its intrusion detection system, known as EINSTEIN, which screens federal Internet traic to identify potential cyberthreats, identified the hack of OPM’s systems and the Interior Department’s data center, which is shared by other federal agencies. It was unclear why the EINSTEIN system didn’t detect the breach until after so many records had been copied and removed. “DHS is continuing to monitor federal networks for any suspicious activity and is working aggressively with the affected agencies to conduct investigative analysis to assess the extent of this alleged intrusion,” the statement said. Cybersecurity expert Morgan Wright of the Center for Digital

home is about twice as big as the previous zoo exhibit. Following the news conference, Kali continued to play in the water, gnawing at one his favorite toys, a plastic trash can of the kind he has enjoyed playing with since he was a small cub at the Bufalo Zoo. Pressing his face to the glass to view his visitors and then turning toward his toy, Kali held the trash can up like it was an oversized Coca-Cola glass. Steve Bircher, carnivore curator at the zoo, compared Kali to an energetic teenager, especially when it comes to food. Kali enjoys a diet of meat, fruits and vegetables, polar bear chow and several diferent types of fish. To clean his teeth, Kali chews on a beef femur bone, Bircher said. Visitors can expect to see Kali walking around the tundra area, swimming in the pool or lounging in the exhibit, Bircher said. On Thursday afternoon, Kali laid out for a nap on a rock bed near the pool, a spot he seemed to favor, Bircher said. “Any time you get a new home, it’s pretty special,” Bircher said. After watching the bear, Jack Omelak, executive director of the Alaska Nanuuq Commission, talked about climate change

affecting bear populations and subsequently the native people in Alaska. In some areas, natives depend on the polar bear for food. The Alaska Nanuuq Commission seeks to preserve the Arctic ecosystem for Arctic Alaskan natives. Polar bears are listed as a threatened species by U.S. Department of the Interior. In the next four decades, polar bear populations in the wild are expected to drop 30 percent. Omelak said people are often disconnected from the environment and unaware how they affect it. Working with the zoo, Omelak and the commission developed video journals of Alaskan native peoples to help visitors understand the relationships between natives and polar bears. “Climate change is the result of human activity,” said Omelak, a resident of Anchorage. “Hopefully this (exhibit) will start to change the idea of how we afect others.” Although the new exhibit could potentially hold five bears, Kali is currently the only occupant in his new home. But with millions of expected visitors to take a peek at him, Kali isn’t expected to be alone any time soon.

city’s budget director requesting a $700-per-month vehicle reimbursement or the purchase of a new car for her use. Paul Payne, the city’s budget director, said the city’s Capital Committee approved the purchase of a new vehicle for Carpenter, but the purchase can’t take place until aldermen approve the overall budget and it goes into efect on July 1. The car is only one perk of the office. Carpenter’s resignation and return allows her to collect a $4,238.76 monthly city pension on top of her $97,000 annual salary. The city’s Capital Committee approved the car purchase in April by a vote of 4-2. Payne and Alderman Scott Ogilvie voted against the purchase, according to minutes of the meeting. The minutes also say the committee “discussed the need to revisit the city’s vehicle policy.”

Ogilvie told the Post-Dispatch he didn’t know the specifics of the city’s vehicle policy, or what it allows elected oicials to do, but he reiterated the policy should be examined. A city ordinance allows elected oiceholders to have take-home city cars. Typically, “wellequipped, full-sized sedans or advanced technology vehicles,” according to the vehicle policy manual. Most citywide officeholders have city-provided vehicles. Mayor Francis Slay doesn’t have a take-home car, but he gets transportation in an unmarked police vehicle with a city-paid driver for work and official events. Slay’s office on Thursday did not comment on the issue.

Government, an advisory institute, said EINSTEIN “certainly appears to be a failure at this point. The government would be better of outsourcing their security to the private sector where’s there at least some accountability.” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, called the hack “shocking, because Americans may expect that federal computer networks are maintained with state-of-the-art defenses.” Ammon said federal agencies are rushing to install twofactor authentication with smart cards, a system designed to make it harder for intruders to access networks. But implementing that technology takes time. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said the government must overhaul its cybersecurity defenses. “Our response to these attacks can no longer simply be notifying people after their personal information has been stolen,” he said. “We must start to prevent these breaches in the first place.”

LAW & ORDER COLLINSVILLE > Man found dead in house that burned • A man was found dead during a ire at his Collinsville home Thursday night. Fireighters rescued at least four dogs and several snakes from the home, Fire Chief Mark Emert said. Fireighters got the call for the ire in the 500 block of Spring Avenue about 8:30 p.m. Black smoke was pluming from the home and it took about 15 minutes for ireighters to knock the ire down, Emert said. Fireighters found the man dead in the kitchen, and as they searched the home they found the dogs and snakes, some as long as 6 feet. Fireighters weren’t sure Thursday night what caused the ire but they smelled a petroleum odor in the smoke. Because the ire was fatal, it will be treated as suspicious. Fireighters did not release the man’s name Thursday night.

ST. LOUiS POST-diSPaTCH • A5

Prosecutor’s actions have drawn questions in case faria • from a1

Attorney Leah Askey was having an undisclosed romance with a police oicer who testified against Faria. Askey has denied having a relationship with the married officer, and issued subpoenas for Friday’s hearing lining up witnesses who include her ex-husband, stepbrother, a handwriting expert and two news reporters. She also had listed herself as a witness, until a defense attorney suggested that she be removed from the case for doing so. H e r a c t i o n s h a ve brought up criticism by her stepbrother, Chad Fitzgerald, including his formal ethics complaint against her, alleging that she misused information gained as his lawyer years ago to tarnish his potential testimony about an afair. It remains to be seen how much weight will be given to the affair allegation by St. Louis Circuit Judge Steven Ohmer, who is handling the Lincoln County case as an outside judge. Friday’s hearing centers around the Dec. 27, 2011, murder of Betsy Faria, who already was dying of cancer. Russell Faria is serving a sentence of life in prison without parole for firstdegree murder. Questions about his conviction were the subject of a joint investigation in 2014 by the Post-Dispatch and Fox 2 News, and garnered national attention. As his appeal was making its way through the system, a rare appeals court order was issued March 6. Noting an appellate court’s power to prevent a miscarriage of justice if newly discovered evidence arises, Chief Appellate Judge Angela Quigless wrote a two-page order focused mainly on Betsy Faria’s friend, Pamela Hupp. Defense lawyer Joel Schwartz said the judge at the trial prevented him from fully exploring Hupp as an alternate suspect. Hupp testified at the trial that she had set up trusts for Betsy Faria’s daughters using $100,000 of the $150,000 she received from the life insurance. She had become beneficiary three days before the killing. In a civil case deposition later, Hupp said she had felt pressured by police and prosecutors to set up the trust because it didn’t look good that the children were left out. Hupp later dissolved the trust and kept the money. She has made contradictory statements about what Betsy Faria had wanted done with the insurance proceeds. Hupp testified that she dropped Betsy Faria off at home outside Troy the evening of the murder. Russell Faria said he arrived later and found the wife dead of 55 stab wounds. He insisted that he was miles away, with friends, when the murder likely happened. Both have denied any role in the killing. Quigless’ order barely mentioned the allegation about a prosecutor’s affair. And some law professors have said that even if it were true, the relationship would not necessarily qualify Faria for a retrial. Responding to a PostDispatch inquiry, Askey denied the existence of an email purporting to be to her from her alleged lover. In an email to relatives years earlier, she said that

the email had been altered. Askey did not return a message seeking comment Wednesday. Her exhusband, Chris Askey, declined to comment. Schwartz, said, “My concern is righting the wrong that’s been caused by an overzealous prosecution and what we feel is a miscarriage of justice.” Since April, Askey and an assistant, George Grundy, have filed motions and other court documents listing people they may call to testify Friday, including Faria and prior trial witnesses. Also included were Chris

Askey, Fitzgerald, an assistant attorney general who received a complaint about the prosecutor and officials from Warren County and Hawk Point. Schwartz claimed in a motion that eight of them have “no discernible connection” to Faria, and asked that they be stricken from the list or a summary be provided of their purpose. Subpoenas for testimony and documents also were served on reporters Chris Hayes of Fox 2 News and Robert Patrick of the Post-Dispatch, who worked together on investigating the Faria trial and

civil litigation by Betsy Faria’s daughters against Hupp. Lawyers for both reporters filed motions, still pending, to quash the subpoenas as a violation of the First Amendment, Missouri Constitution and common law “reporter’s privilege.” The motions also say that there “is strong reason to believe” the subpoenas were issued “with the intent to stifle critics.” Michael Downey, a St. Louis lawyer who specializes in legal ethics, said subpoenas can be seen as “an element of intimida-

tion” and that receiving one “reminds you she has power over you.” Fitzgerald, in a phone interview, claimed Askey was trying to make him “look as bad as possible.” He admitted he has only circumstantial evidence about an afair, but said he is prepared to testify that she wrongly used information gained as his lawyer to try to discredit him now. She has subpoenaed information from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office. Fitzgerald said she was seeking information about misconduct allegations from when he worked

there, and provided a copy of the disciplinary complaint he said he filed against her. Warren County Sheriff Kevin Harrison confirmed that early on, Fitzgerald was “consulting” with his sister about his troubles, and later used a lawyer friend of hers. Downey said that Missouri’s rules of professional conduct specifically prohibit using information “relating to representation of a client to the disadvantage of the client.” Robert Patrick • 314-621-5154 @rxpatrick on Twitter RPatrick@post-dispatch.com

Navy’s top oicial talks STEM here By JessicA Bock St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Navy’s highest oicer stressed the importance of science, technology, engineering and math education while in St. Louis on Wednesday. Chief of Naval Operations Jonathan Greenert spoke at a lunch of about 75 people at the Missouri Athletic Club downtown with the local chapter of the Navy League, a support organization, as well as several Sea Cadets, its youth program. Greenert said many recruits know they want to be in the Navy, but they’re unsure of exactly what they want to do. “Not as many as you think want to be something technical,” he said.

“It’s incumbent upon us to then delve into that and move them toward that.” There is a need for more women with STEM skills. He said 85 percent of women enlisted in the Navy are in five different skills sets — and three are administrative. In 2011, the Navy announced it would increase the amount of grants available for STEM education from $54 million to $100 million over five years. Officials have said a large number of Naval STEM professionals will be retiring in the coming years and that fewer American students are graduating with the preparation and interest in those careers. Greenert also noted on

Wednesday that not all of that money has been obligated. More connections are needed to those interested in STEM education, he said. John Fitzgerald, one of the principals at Pattonville High School, is interested in starting a St. Louis-area robotics competition where the machines are tested underwater. He asked Greenert what areas recruits are showing deficiencies in when they come into the Navy. “Skills in mathematics and physical science, kind of basic science,” Greenert said. “It’s not really — if you will — ‘rocket science.”’ Jessica Bock • 314-340-8228 @jessicabock on Twitter jbock@post-dispatch.com

Grand juror in Ferguson case ights gag order anew By JiM sUHR Associated Press

ST. LOUIS • A member of the grand jury that declined to indict a white Ferguson police officer in 18-year-old Michael Brown’s shooting death last summer has asked a county judge to expeditiously allow her to publicly discuss those secret proceedings. The woman, identified in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in St. Louis County only as “Grand Juror Doe,” asserts that County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch mischaracterized the jury’s findings. The suit against McCulloch came more than three weeks after a judge ruled in a similar lawsuit in

federal court that the former grand juror needed to first press a state court for permission to talk freely. A McCulloch spokesman, Ed Magee, declined to comment on the matter Thursday. Brown, who was black and unarmed, was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson last August, touching off protests that at times turned violent. McCulloch announced Nov. 24 that a grand jury that investigated Wilson’s actions declined to indict him. That ruling fueled additional protests. Grand Juror Doe’s lawsuit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, alleges McCulloch wrongly implied that all 12 jurors believed there was no support for any charges. Under Missouri law, an indictment requires agreement by nine of the panel’s

dozen members, and grand jurors are sworn to secrecy under the threat of contempt or other charges. After the decision was announced, McCulloch took the unusual step of releasing thousands of pages of testimony provided to the grand jury. Grand jurors usually hear a condensed version of evidence that might be presented at trial, but the Ferguson grand jury heard more extensive testimony. Grand Juror Doe’s lawsuit says she came away with the impression that evidence was presented differently than in other cases, with a “stronger focus on the victim,” rather than Wilson, and “the insinuation that Michael Brown, not Wilson, was the wrongdoer.” Wilson, who since has resigned, also was cleared by a Justice Department investigation.

Disturbing drama takes Gaslight stage theater review

‘thE PillowmAN’

Brutal play runs long, asks a lot of its audience

When • 8 p.m. Thursday-Sunday Where • Gaslight Theatre, 358 North Boyle Avenue How much • $20 More info • brownpapertickets.com

By Judith NEwmArk St. Louis Post-dispatch

In an unnamed totalitarian state, a writer of short stories struggles to justify his work to the police officers who have hauled him in. That’s not a news item. That’s the plot of “The Pillowman,” a drama by Martin McDonagh that Theatre Lab just opened at the Gaslight Theater. Under the direction of Theatre Lab founder Ryan Foizey, this gripping drama explores an old puzzle: What is the relationship between life and art? Maybe you think you know the answer. According to an old puzzle about a burning building that holds both a Rembrandt and a cat, you try to save the cat. Life counts more than art. Doesn’t it? In “The Pillowman,” McDonagh recalibrates the problem from every perspective he can think of. Restating the question from the viewpoints of the writer Katurian (Jason E. Klefisch) his developmentally delayed brother Michal (Nick Kelly), and police officers

In Theatre Lab’s production of “The Pillowman,” the writer Katurian (Jason E. Kleisch, right) tries to satisfy police oicers Tupolski (Eric Dean White, left) and Ariel (Darian Michael Garey), as they question him about horrible crimes that echo stories he has written.

Tupolski (Eric Dean White) and Ariel (Darian Michael Garey), McDonagh raises the stakes relentlessly. Katurian’s fiction — mostly unpublished — details nauseating crimes against children. But when real children fall victim to identical crimes, the police are more than curious.

Foizey’s actors lock into each other with powerhouse performances. Kelly, as Michal, tones down the showiest role with poignant hesitation; Michal has no idea how much trouble he’s in. As the “good cop” and “bad cop” — neither as good nor as bad as he first seems — White and Garey coolly reveal little of their char-

acters, yet tell us plenty about the state they serve. Klefisch anchors the whole drama. In scenes with each of the other actors, he lets us see Katurian’s ideals crumble, traded for small, maybe pointless, advantages. With an uplifted jaw and dark, steady gaze, Klefisch’s Katurian strives for heroism, or at least

principle. But he’s the smallest man on stage. Really, what are his odds? The strong production is not enough to overcome some built-in difficulties. As a rule, a play that deals with very harsh material (such as nauseating descriptions of child torture and considerable onstage violence) disposes of it in short order. Length is the privilege of plays with a sunnier, or at least a more cerebral, outlook. But at about three hours, “The Pillowman” dwells at great length on hideous events, many depicted in dramatic projections that illustrate Katurian’s loathsome stories and ghastly childhood memories. Foizey has mounted a solid production of a thoughtful drama. But when you stage long a play about murdered children, you have to realize that you’re asking a lot of your audience. They just might not be in the mood. Judith Newmark • 314-340-8243 Theater critic @judithnewmark on Twitter jnewmark@post-dispatch.com

Nixon announces veto in Kansas City, St. Louis work • from A1

fair wages and training has lifted the living standards of families everywhere, both union and nonunion,” Nixon told a frenzied crowd of unionized sheet-metal workers and others at a St. Louis union training facility. The governor had made a similar announcement earlier Thursday in Kansas City, and crossed the state in a Missouri Highway Patrol aircraft to repeat it in St. Louis. Now legislative proponents must look toward the September veto session, which provides a chance for lawmakers to override any gubernatorial vetoes by a two-thirds majority vote in each chamber — 109 in the House and 23 in the Senate. The House passed the original measure 92-66 last month, meaning 17 additional members would need to vote “yes” in September for an override to be successful. The Senate approved the bill 21-13, meaning two senators would have to change their positions for the override. Overriding the governor’s veto “obviously is a huge challenge, but I am hopeful,” said bill sponsor Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Springfield. “I think that the more people learn the facts on the issue, the more people realize this is the right course of action for the state.” Proponents of right-to-work legislation say the measure would help the state attract businesses, therefore increasing wages. Opponents argue the measure would lower wages and lead to more dangerous work environment. The measure would prohibit requiring workers to a join a union in a workplace. Currently, workers at a union employer can opt out of paying dues for union membership, but may be required to pay fees

“House Bill 116 is a war on your paycheck. It cannot become law,” said Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, addressing a crowd of union workers on Thursday at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 training facility in St. Louis.

for the collective bargaining and other representation services provided by the union. Under the bill, employees who are not members of the union could not be forced to pay fees for such union services. Business representatives who violate the measure could be charged with a class C misdemeanor, which could result in 15 days in jail and a $300 fine. Burlison plans to spend the summer presenting the facts to the measure’s detractors in the House in hopes of attracting enough votes to override the veto. “My job is to present the facts and let lawmakers do what they believe is in the best interest of the state in their district,” he said. But even if he can secure 109 votes in the House, Senate Republicans face an uphill battle. The Senate voted to pass the bill only after they used a rare pro-

cedure known as the “previous question” to shut down an eighthour filibuster by Democrats. Furious Senate Democrats then shut down debate on everything else, efectively stalling nearly all legislative action in the upper chamber during the last week of session. Sen. Scott Sifton, D-St. Louis County, expects there to be “quite a fight” in the Senate should the bill be brought up in September. “I would hope opponents of right-to-work remain consistent in their opposition,” Sifton said. Senate Minority Leader Joe Keaveny, D-St. Louis, said the Democrats haven’t discussed what they will do if Republicans bring up right-to-work in September. He would be surprised, however, if the GOP is able to switch two “no” votes. In the Senate, all nine Demo-

police SWAT officers killed a dog without provocation while searching a home for violations of the housing code, according to a federal lawsuit filed this week by the pet’s owner. Angela Zorich seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages and reimbursement of legal fees from St. Louis County and two police oicers. The suit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis, alleges that Officer Corey Zavorka “immediately shot and fatally wounded” the dog after the SWAT team stormed into Zorich’s house along the 3000 block of Caprock Court in south St. Louis County on April 29, 2014. It claims police came in without knocking or announcing their presence, and that Kiya, a 4-year-old pit bull that Zorich

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Man enters plea in fatal shooting • Glenn Pickett, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and other charges Wednesday related to a fatal shooting last year as part of a deal that will likely result in 15 years in prison. Pickett, 32, fatally shot Flynt Clemons Jr. around midnight on Aug. 9 in an argument that began earlier between Clemons and Pickett’s Pickett girlfriend, who was an employee of the Domino’s Pizza at 1444 North Kingshighway, Assistant Circuit Attorney Martin Minnegerode wrote in a court iling. Pickett’s lawyer, Terence Niehof, said that Clemons thought he’d been cheated on change. Pickett’s girlfriend, Sasha Hunnicut, called police and then Pickett. Niehof said that the dispute between Pickett and Clemons became physical and Pickett shot the much larger Clemons when Clemons reached in his pocket. Niehof contended that Pickett thought Clemons was going for a gun. Pickett has previous convictions for tampering with a motor vehicle, attempted stealing of a motor vehicle, two gun charges and resisting arrest, and has violated probation several times. He had been facing charges including irstdegree murder. On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a irearm

had raised from a puppy,“neither acted aggressively nor had time to even bark prior to being shot.” The lawsuit alleges that the officers forced Zorich and one of her sons to kneel at gunpoint in the blood of their dying dog as it struggled to breathe and would not let them comfort the animal. It says her son Joseph had been holding his 5-month-old son three to four feet from the dog when three shots were fired. “This was an extremely traumatic experience for the family,” said attorney Kenneth Chackes, who along with Stephen Ryals is representing Zorich. “It was completely unjustified.” A county police spokesman, Sgt. Brian Schellman, said he could not comment on pending litigation. The lawsuit alleges that Officer Robert Rinck of the Problem Properties Unit obtained a search warrant that day from St. Louis County Municipal Judge Robert

as part of plea deal that has both sides recommending a 15-year prison term. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 9. Clemons’ relatives sued the operator of the Domino’s franchise in 2014. The case was settled earlier this year for $1.6 million. ST. PETERS > Man faces child abuse charge • A 31-year-old man has been arrested after police say he injured his girlfriend’s son in a dispute over a soda. James Vincent Princivalli of the irst block of Coach Drive was arrested after a relative reported seeing bruises on the child, who was 10 at the time of the incident in mid-April, police said. According to police, the boy went into the kitchen of the home about 7 p.m. and got a sip of Mountain Dew from a bottle his mother had bought him. Princivalli told the boy it was too late to be drinking cafeine and pushed the boy around the kitchen, police said. Princivalli then allegedly grabbed the boy by both ears and pulled him upstairs to his bedroom, where he pushed him down to the loor. When questioned by police, Princivalli denied harming the child, court documents say. Princivalli was charged Wednesday with felony child abuse. Bail is set at $20,000, cash-only. ST. LOUIS > Man is fatally shot • A man was fatally shot Thursday at Prairie and Greer avenues. The man was shot several times about 3:10 p.m. at the intersection in the city’s Jef-Vander-Lou neighborhood, south of Fairground Park. Police said the victim and

Adler to investigate alleged property ordinance violations. It says Zorich had spoken with Rinck the day before and planned an inspection when her husband was present. Zavorka and Rinck are separately named as defendants. The oicers’ concern, the suit says, was whether the house had natural gas and electrical service, as required by the housing code. The suit says the house did have electricity but not gas. “They were trying to work out an arrangement to allow inspectors into the house to determine what needed to be done about the gas and electricity, and, in spite of their attempts to cooperate, the police just went ahead and performed this massive invasion of the house with guns drawn, and, as soon as they saw the dog, gunfire,” Chackes said.

three other males were sitting in a small gray vehicle when they got out and two of them shot at each other. Two of the men got back into the vehicle, which had temporary tags and damage to a passenger door, and drove of. Another man ran of. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. ST. LOUIS > Public’s help is sought to identify woman found dead in river • The St. Louis Medical Examiner’s oice is seeking help from the public to identify a woman whose body was found Wednesday loating in the Mississippi River near downtown St. Louis. The woman, estimated at between 20 to 40 years old, is 5 foot 6 inches tall and weighs 144 pounds. She is white, with straight brown medium-length hair and a single piercing in each ear. Authorities say she also has a space between her front teeth and a large scorpion tattoo on her back. Anyone with any information about her identity is asked to call police or Medical Examiner’s Oice at 314-622-4971. ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Teen fatally shot • Patron Pierce, 18, was found shot and killed in the 1200 block of Reale Avenue in the Spanish Lake area on Thursday, police said. Pierce lived in the 12000 block of Western Cape Drive in Maryland Heights. He was found lying in the front yard of a home about 4 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they believe the shooting was not a random act, but they didn’t have any information on suspects.

crats voted against the measure, along with four Republicans: Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey, R-St. Charles, as well as Sens. Gary Romine, R-Farmington; Ryan Silvey, R-Kansas City, and Paul Wieland, R-Imperial. Silvey, the most outspoken opponent of right-to-work among Senate Republicans, is unlikely to change his vote. Wieland said he would re-examine the legislation and send a survey to his district, but doesn’t anticipate changing his vote. Dempsey and Romine could not be reached for comment. Because of the low vote counts in both the House and Senate, Keaveny said Republicans pushed the measure more as a political tactic than to make a policy change. “I think that’s the reason they did it, to see who was in favor of it and who wasn’t,” Keaveny said,

adding that record then could be used in the election both for and against whomever is running. But Burlison, who has carried the bill in previous years, said politics had nothing to do with his push for a vote. “For me, it’s an issue I believe in and I really don’t care what the politics of it are,” Burlison said. If lawmakers can override the governor’s veto, Missouri would become the 26th state to let workers choose whether they have to join unions, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Those states still have unions, but workers cannot be required to become members. In those states, unionization rates and wages are lower, but employment has increased, according to a 2012 Congressional Research Service report. However, the report stated that it is not possible to determine if those trends are related to the passage of right-to-work. On Thursday, Nixon vowed to spend “the next 105 days” — roughly the time between now and the end of the fall veto session — solidifying support to sustain his veto. Daniel Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce, said bill supporters have their “work cut out for us” in attempting an override. “It’s going to require a major efort. You never know,” he said. “But it’s no easy task.” Mehan disputed Nixon’s criticisms of right-to-work legislation. “It attracts investment, it attracts opportunity,” he said. “It’s more about freedom to join [a union] or not. It’s up to the individual, or it should be.” The bill is HB116. Kevin McDermott reported from St. Louis. Alex Stuckey • 573-556-6186 @alexdstuckey on Twitter astuckey@post-dispatch.com

Jeb Bush jumps into unwieldy GOP ield Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, also joins crowded pack in 2016 White House race AssociAted Press

wA S H I N GT o N • Jeb Bush stepped into the Republican race for president on Thursday, finally taking his place — after months of hints and relentless fundraising — amid an unwieldy field of GOP candidates unlike any in recent memory. The son of one president and brother of another, the former Florida governor has the rank of front-runner and the donors to match. He now has eight months before the first votes are cast in the Iowa caucuses to prove he’s worthy of both. “It’s as wide-open a race as we’ve seen in a long time,” said Republican strategist Kevin Madden, who described Bush, 62, as the “technical front-runner” in a field that stands at 11 major declared candidates. Among them: former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who returned Thursday to presidential politics four years after his 2012 presidential bid ended in disaster, vowing during his own campaign kickoff to “end an era of failed leadership.” While both men were widely expected to enter the race, which got its unofficial start when Bush said in December he was exploring whether to seek the Republican nomination, the confirmation from aides that Bush will indeed run is nonetheless a defining moment for the GOP. The son of George Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, he is a favorite of the Republican establishment, the experienced and well-connected party faithful who have showered Jeb Bush with money, stafing talent and encouragement in recent months. His decision ensures the possibility of a general election showdown between two political dynasties as Hillary Rodham Clinton seeks the Democratic nomination. Senior aides confirmed that Bush, who left the Florida governor’s mansion in 2007, will enter the race June 15 at an event at Miami Dade College. They spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to take the edge of his formal announcement. “I want to be the guy to beat,” a confident Bush said while campaigning in Florida earlier this week. The GOP contest now features candidates of different genera-

tions, races and genders, whose policy prescriptions are far from monolithic and whose personalities often clash. There are more to come: four sitting governors — Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and New Jersey’s Chris Christie among them — are likely to join the race before the GOP’s first presidential debate in August. “Everyone is bunched together in the polls, and no one candidate in particular has emerged as a clear leader in the early state contests,” Madden said. Perry opened his campaign in a fight for relevancy among the many Republicans trying to knock Bush from his front-runner position. Despite his record as Texas’ longest-serving governor, Perry may struggle to reach the polling threshold that will decide the 10 candidates who will take part in the party’s first debate on Aug. 6. He announced his candidacy in a humid airport hangar alongside a C-130 cargo plane, like one he flew for the Air Force, and wasted little time in trying to distinguish himself from the swarm of Republican contenders not named Bush. “Leadership is not a speech on the Senate floor,” he declared in an apparent swipe at the four Republican senators in the race: Marco Rubio of Florida, Rand Paul of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. “It’s not what you say. It’s what you do.” Madden, who previously worked for Mitt Romney, predicted that Bush’s entry would prompt “more obvious head-tohead engagements among the candidates” as they jockey for position.

The reports noted that the surveillance of U.S. Internet traic, which began in 2012, has been without individual warrants envisioned under the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

ligence, said it was “not surprising that the U.S. government gathers intelligence on foreign powers that attempt to penetrate U.S. networks and steal the private information of U.S. citizens and companies.” Under the PRISM program, the NSA collects intelligence about foreign threats through U.S. Internet companies. The agency also collects information by tapping Internet traic at home and abroad. In mid-2012, Justice Department lawyers wrote two secret memos authorizing NSA to collect intelligence on U.S. Internet cables for data linked to cyberattacks originating abroad — including traffic that flows to suspicious Internet addresses or contains malware, the news reports said.

Texas doctors have done the world’s first partial skull and scalp transplant to help a man who suffered a large head wound from cancer treatment. Doctors from Houston Methodist Hospital and MD Anderson Cancer Center did the operation two weeks ago. The recipient — Jim Boysen, 55, a software developer from Austin, Texas — was to leave the hospital Thursday with a new kidney and pancreas with the scalp and skull grafts. He said he was stunned at how well doctors matched him to a donor with similar skin and hair coloring. “It’s kind of shocking, really, how good they got it. I will have way more hair than when I was 21,”

Boysen joked. Last year, doctors in the Netherlands said they replaced most of a woman’s skull with a 3-D printed plastic one. The Texas operation is thought to be the first skull-scalp transplant from a human donor. Boysen had a kidneypancreas transplant in 1992 to treat diabetes and has been on drugs to prevent organ rejection. The immune suppressors raise the risk of cancer, and he developed a rare type — leiomyosarcoma. Radiation therapy for the cancer destroyed part of his head, immune suppression drugs kept his body from repairing the damage, and his transplanted organs were starting to fail — “a perfect storm that made the wound not heal,” Boysen said.

FDA panel backs female libido pill AssocIAted Press

The drug industry’s decade-spanning search for a female equivalent to Viagra took a major step forward Thursday, as government experts recommended approval for a pill to boost sexual desire in women. But the endorsement came with safety reservations because of side effects including fatigue, low blood pressure and fainting. The panel of Food and Drug Administration advisers voted 18-6 in favor of Sprout Pharmaceutical’s daily pill, flibanserin, on the condition that the company develops a plan to manage its risks. The recommendation is a major victory for a drug sometimes hailed as “female Viagra” but which has been plagued for years by concerns of lackluster efectiveness and safety issues. The FDA has rejected the drug twice since 2010. And a similar panel of FDA experts voted unanimously against the drug five years ago. Thursday’s vote was nonbinding, but the FDA often follows the advice of its experts. An official decision is expected in August. Experts acknowledged that flibanserin’s efect is not very strong but said there is a need fo r F DA- a p p rove d drugs to address female sexual problems. “These are very modest results,” said Dr. Julia Heiman of the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University. “But on the other hand, even modest results can make a lot of difference when you’re at a certain point in the clinical problem.”

After ive decades in heels, Barbie inally wears lats McclAtchy WAShington BureAu

WASHINGTON • After more than half a

century, Barbie finally has some relief for her aching feet. Mattel, the toy company that manufactures the iconic American doll, has released a line of “Fashionista” Barbies, which can wear flat-soled shoes for the first time. Ever since Mattel first introduced Barbie in 1959, she’s been forced to hobble around in high heels. Even when you took off her stilettos or platform shoes, her plastic feet remained in a rigid tiptoe stance. The 23 new “Fashionista” Barbie dolls not only have flexible ankles that can accommodate either heels or flats, but they also come in a more diverse variety: eight skin tones, 14 face shapes, 22 hairdos, 23 hair colors and 18 eye colors. “The Barbie Fashionistas line was designed to represent the world girls

see around them,” Ani Istanboulian, a spokeswoman for Mattel, explained in an email Thursday. With their “authentic street style (hence why many of them rock flats), this line represents the continued evolution of the Barbie brand,” Istanboulian wrote. The news generated much online buzz this week as grown-ups who’d long pitied Barbie’s plight reacted to the change in footwear. “Finally, Barbie has been set free of her misery,” MTV Style gushed. “There’s no word on if or when an official Mattel plus-size Barbie is in the works, but in plastic world, this is all huge news,” declared a Cosmopolitan article that got more than 10,000 shares on Facebook. “One small step for Barbie, one huge leap for womankind.” Mattel’s Barbie website already displays numerous Fashionista dolls for sale wearing flats.

U.S. weighs deploying missiles in Europe as counter to Russia AssociAted Press

President Barack Obama’s administration is weighing a range of aggressive responses to Russia’s alleged violation of a Cold War-era nuclear treaty, including deploying land-based missiles in Europe that could pre-emptively destroy the Russian weapons. This “counterforce” option is among possibilities the administration is considering as it reviews its entire policy toward Russia in light of Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine, its annexation of Crimea and other actions the U.S. deems confrontational in Europe and beyond. The options go so far as one implied — but not stated explicitly — that would improve the ability of U.S. nuclear weapons to destroy military targets on Russian territory. It all has a certain Cold War ring, even if the White House ultimately decides to continue tolerating Russia’s alleged flight-testing of a ground-launched cruise missile with a range prohibited by the treaty. Russia denies violating the treaty and has, in turn, claimed violations by the United States in erecting missile defenses. It is unclear whether Russia has actually deployed the suspect missile or whether Washington would make any military move if the Russians stopped short of deployment. For now, administration oicials say they prefer to continue trying to talk Moscow into treaty compliance. The standof speaks volumes about the depths to which U.S.-Russia relations have fallen. And that poses problems not only for the Obama administration but also for the NATO alliance, whose members in eastern Europe are especially leery of allowing Russian provocations to go unanswered. Western leaders are meeting Sunday and Monday for a G-7 summit — from which Russian President Vladimir Putin has been excluded — where Russian aggression will be a key topic. On Friday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter plans to meet in Germany with American defense and diplomatic officials to map out a counterstrategy to Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and to reassure allies worried about Moscow. The treaty issue is not a specific agenda item for Carter, but aides said regional nuclear force issues could come up.

cANAdiAN LeAder AssAiLs PutiN Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Thursday that Russia should never be allowed back in the Group of 7 as long as Vladimir Putin is president. Harper said in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press that he expects the group won’t ever let Putin back in. Harper said even long before the Ukraine crisis, Russia has eroded any basis for belonging to the group of wealthy nations. He also noted that Russia has ramped up long range bomber patrols near North American airspace. The G-7 suspended Russia last year but hasn’t ruled out welcoming him back. “I don’t think Russia under Vladimir Putin belongs in the G-7. Period,” Harper said. “Canada would very, very strongly oppose Putin ever sitting around that table again. It would require consensus to bring Russia back, and that consensus will just not happen.”

eAsterN uKrAiNe teNse Separatist and government troops in east Ukraine stood nervously poised hundreds of meters apart Thursday in the wake of bloody battle that has threatened to demolish what remains of the brittle cease-fire there. Underscoring anxieties in the Ukrai-

nian capital, President Petro Poroshenko warned of a possible large-scale ofensive by separatist forces following the violence on the western fringe of the rebel citadel, Donetsk. But the mood among rebel combatants huddled in a wooded base just beyond the Donetsk suburb of Marinka, where Wednesday’s fighting was centered, suggested only frustration at the lack of a clear battle plan. “We can’t just sit here in trenches. I think we should only go forward, forward and forward,” one separatist fighter, who identified himself by his nom de guerre, Abaza, told The Associated Press. In the dugout where Abaza stood, flies clustered over a pool of blood where a wounded militiaman was given emergency treatment the day before. Rebels in Donetsk now appear to be standing down following the clash. An AP reporter who visited Marinka briefly Thursday observed that it appeared to be under the control of Ukrainian government troops, who said they were performing mop-up operations. Even the oicial tally of fighters killed attests to the battle for Marinka being the biggest that east Ukraine has seen since February, when an internationally brokered armistice was signed.

ATHENS, GrEEcE • Desperate for time, Greece is taking an unusual step in talks over its bailout program: It will bundle four payments due this month to the International Monetary Fund into one payment on June 30. The delay is allowed under IMF rules. Yet it shows how Greece is struggling to meet its financial obligations without the rescue loans that have been withheld since last summer, as Athens and its creditors fail to agree on economic reforms. The move follows the failure of radical left Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to break the stalemate with creditors at a latenight meeting with European Commission head Jean Claude Juncker and the top oicial representing Greece’s peers in the eurozone. The talks will resume “within coming days,” oicials said. On his return to Athens from Brussels, Tsipras told government oicials that “extreme proposals will not be accepted by the Greek government. Everyone must understand that the Greek people have sufered greatly over the last five years and some people must stop playing games at their expense.” Without a deal, Greece will not get the 7.2 billion euros ($8.1 billion) remaining from its 240 billion-euro bailout fund, which it has been relying on for five years. Without the money, it will struggle to pay debts and the country could soon go bankrupt — a possible preamble to a forced exit from the euro and a return to a financial stone age with a devalued version of its old national currency. IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said Greece’s decision to bundle the payments “was intended to address the administrative difficulty of making multiple payments in a short period.” Under an IMF rule from the 1970s, countries can ask to bundle together multiple payments if they fall within a single calendar month. Not since Zambia in the mid-1980s has a country made the request, according to the IMF. Still, the request buys some time for the Greek government, which has already scraped the barrel of its finances by forcing local authorities, hospitals and universities to lend it their cash reserves. Its first IMF payment of a little more than 300 million euros ($335 million) was due on Friday, part of a total 1.6 billion euros ($1.79 billion) due to the fund this month.

FACING DOWN DISCRIMINATION Our view • Caitlyn Jenner and Jim Obergefell show us what discrimination looks like.

When a person changes gender identity — let’s say they go from being Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner, for instance — it isn’t about morality or about sex. As we are learning in what quickly became a national and maybe an international conversation, this change has more to do with what’s between a person’s ears than other parts of their anatomy. While many of us are uncomfortable seeing the image of a former male Olympic decathlon gold medalist looking very womanly in a tight satin corset on the cover of a fashion magazine, that has more to do with our social conditioning than anything else. We should not judge. The reason we’re troubled by the image is that most of us grew up believing gender was a binary set and that there were only two, boys and girls. Some were more masculine and some were more feminine. Some, although we usually didn’t know it at the time, were gay. That was it. End of the story. Occasionally there would be whispers, but, if there were secrets and intersex issues and gender identity problems, people kept it to themselves. We know now that forcing people into the closet with their secrets was wrong, but that was the way it was. They suffered and grieved and were depressed and sometimes committed suicide. The secretiveness was a holdover from our parents’ greatest-generation and depression-era

We don’t know her motivation and can only speculate about the upcoming reality show following her progression as a woman. While Bruce as an athlete was an attention hound, Caitlyn is showing those same tendencies. So be it. If public attention is part of what goes into creating an environment in which transgender discrimination is — as Vice President Joe Biden said, “the civil rights issue of our time” — then let’s cut Caitlyn some slack. There is no doubt about the civil rights implications. On Thursday, the New York Times editorial board wrote about Staff Sgt. Loeri Harrison awaiting paperwork certifying that after an exemplary eightyear Army career she is no longer fit for duty and must leave Fort Bragg. Her crime? Being transgender. The Jenner revelation sent many of us to Google to find out what pronouns to use or what it means to be transgender or transsexual or cisgender or third-gender or a cross-dresser. This is complicated stuff. Not gender-reassignment surgery complicated, but still not back to the there are boys and there are girls and that’s the end of the story stuff. Today, it is not only celebrities and publicity seekers who are transgender. It’s our neighbors and our friends and our children. While transgender discrimination is being declared the next civil rights frontier, the old battles are still being waged.

mentality, when burdens were shouldered silently and self-sacrifice was the order of the day, not self-love. With a look-at-me bluster that is typical of the boomer generation — aka the “me generation” as so-named by author Tom Wolfe — very little is done in private anymore. The search for self-fulfillment is a public one. Food and exercise and entertainment are not so much experienced as shared. Checking in, tweeting out and sharing umpteen Snapchat-FacebookTwitter-Instagram photos of dinner is de rigueur. Even introspection is a public undertaking in the narcissistic generation. The positive side of ripping off the covers is that it has forced the discussion. When recognition of third-genders was limited to small groups in Samoan or East Asian or ancient cultures — where feminized men were and are part of the cultural landscape — westerners did not have to pay much attention. When George Jorgensen Jr. underwent sexual reassignment surgery to became Christine Jorgensen in 1951 and proceeded to become a spokeswoman for transgenderism, it caused a sensation but little changed in the way of social attitudes. In 1975, when tennis great Dr. Richard Raskin became tennis great Dr. Renee Richards, the country still was not ready to talk. That’s why Caitlyn Jenner is important.

The fight for same-sex marriage equality continues, with the U.S. Supreme Court expected to hand down its decision later this month. Jim Obergefell of Ohio, who was married to his late partner, John Arthur, in Maryland in 2013 because Ohio did not recognize such unions, is a lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case. Mr. Obergefell is a real estate agent and not an activist. But he is traveling the country on behalf of marriage equality in a tour organized by the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest advocacy group for gay rights. The HRC says that while same-sex marriage recognition has progressed, discrimination against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community continues. Mr. Obergefell told the Post-Dispatch Editorial Board on Wednesday that he wants to help because “this is a human rights issue.” He is hoping for recognition of human dignity, freedom from discrimination and equal treatment, regardless of sexual orientation or gender. The Missouri Legislature has failed repeatedly to pass a law assuring LGBT people that they are safe from discrimination in the state. That is why Caitlyn Jenner and Jim Obergefell are important. They are the new faces of discrimination in a country that still has too much of it.

YOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Real issue isn’t payment, but why Nazis weren’t prosecuted

sionary work around the world? Did not Jesus himself command his apostles to go forth and spread the gospel? Are all missionaries spreading racism and intolerance? Is bringing the word of God to the uninitiated a sign of white dominance to the whole world? I cannot believe that SLU is so afraid of offending a few malcontents that they would offend all the rest of us Catholics who believe that missionary work is doing the work of the Lord. I hope SLU reconsiders removing this statue. What’s next, changing the name of De Smet Hall? Asking the local Jesuit high school to drop the name De Smet? Will Marquette University have to change its name? I will continue to pray for the continued success of St. Louis University and will now add a request that the president of the university develop a backbone. Patrick W. Maloney • St. Louis

When the feds couldn’t nail Al Capone any other way, he was nailed for income tax evasion. Oddly reminiscent is a current issue over Social Security payments to exNazis (“Watchdog: Suspected ex-Nazis got $20.2M in Social Security,” June 1). The outrage, though, shouldn’t be about the money, but how and why, once identified, those parties still living were not prosecuted. Robert Beck • St. Louis

Missouri should take Nebraska’s lead, abolish the death penalty Recently, Nebraska joined 18 other states in banning the death penalty (“Nebraska death penalty backers consider challenges to repeal,” May 29). Missouri must follow suit. Far from weakening or diverting attention from Missouri’s impressive history of pro-life legislation, repealing the death penalty would provide a credible demonstration of our state’s consistency in valuing and protecting all human life. This past March, Pope Francis stated once again the Catholic Church’s opposition to the death penalty. “Today the death penalty is inadmissible,” he said. It “contradicts God’s plan for man and society” and “does not render justice to the victims, but rather fosters vengeance.” And there are other victims in this scenario, albeit hidden ones. For every prisoner led to the death chamber, numerous correctional employees hold on to their jobs but crush their souls as they prepare the condemned person, administer the lethal dose or flip the switch. Drawn into the horror of another human’s execution,

Restoring trust begins with listening, responding to voters they must then go home, wrap their arms around their children, force a smile and say they had a good day at work. Is our quest for vengeance worth the dehumanization and ensuing guilt of those who must accompany the “dead man walking?” Jean Monahan • University City

vu all over again.” What is it with St. Louis University and statues? Shortly after kowtowing to the extortion demands of the Ferguson protesters, they cave in again and remove the statue of missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet. Imagine what the world would look like today if the early Jesuits displayed the same cowardice as the current administration at SLU. The early explorers and martyrs, such as missionaries Jacques Pere Marquette and Isaac Jogues, must be rolling in their graves to see a once-proud Catholic university removing the statue of a Jesuit missionary. Aren’t the Jesuits still involved in mis-

I read with interest Missouri Sen. Eric Schmitt’s article on Senate Bill 5, “Taxpayers are not ATMs for municipalities” (May 28). Addressing reforms of some municipal court activities is laudable. I’m struck by the senator’s desire to “restore people’s trust in local government.” As a voter in his district, I’d suggest an appropriate step toward that goal would be for Sen. Schmitt to be responsive to voter input. Communications I have sent to him go unacknowledged.

Roy B.

America’s heartland depends on clean water Environment • New EPA rule ofers better protections and ensures an abundance of our natural resources BY MARK HAGUE

Protecting the heartland’s streams and wetlands under the Clean Water Act that was passed in 1972 helps our communities and is vital to our economy, health, safety and quality of life. During the past 43 years, the EPA, states and local partners have worked tirelessly to clean up once-polluted rivers and streams. The Clean Water Act also protects the smaller streams and wetlands that flow into rivers like the Meramec, Dardenne, Cuivre and St. Francis in Missouri. Streams and wetlands are crucial for fishing, hunting, tourism agriculture, recreation, energy and businesses. The heartland thrives on clean water, a resource we must conserve and protect. Agricultural interests, public health officials, recreational small businesses

and all the rest of us rely on clean water for our lives and livelihoods. While we’ve come a long way and dealt with the biggest issues, work remained. The EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have worked together to resolve, through the new Clean Water Rule the inconsistencies that existed after two Supreme Court decisions. The new rule will help ensure clean waters are available to everyone here in the heartland. The rule more clearly protects the streams and wetlands that are scientifically shown to have the greatest impact on downstream water quality and form the foundation of the nation’s water resources. One of our most important challenges is protecting those smaller tributaries and wetlands that are part of the vast interconnected system of some of our big

rivers, like the Missouri and the Mississippi. Our small waters serve an integral role in ensuring clean water for all Americans and our environment. We also rely on these smaller wetlands to provide uptake of nutrients, to moderate flow in times of flooding, and to serve as important habitat for species that spawn or rely on bodies of water. People need clean water for their health: About 117 million Americans — one in three people — get drinking water from streams that lacked clear protection before the rule. Clean and reliable water is an economic driver, including for agriculture, manufacturing, tourism, recreation and energy production. Farms across America’s heartland depend on water for livestock, crops and irrigation. Finally, we all rely on the healthy ecosystems in these

upstream waters to provide us natural places to fish, boat, swim and enjoy the outdoors. When hunters and anglers enjoy pristine places; fishing-rod makers and boat builders enjoy more business. And, of course, when drinking water sources are cleaner, people are healthier. We all win. In developing the rule, we held more than 400 meetings with stakeholders across the country and reviewed more than a million public comments. We held numerous roundtables and meetings with the agricultural, business and environmental communities in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. The agricultural community and other stakeholders provided valuable input that shaped the final rule. This input and the latest science led us to provide more clarity regarding tributaries,

Rand Paul

which are being protected under the Clean Water Act. A tributary must show physical features of flowing water — a bed, bank and ordinary high water mark — to warrant protection. The rule clarifies the definition of ditches. Ditches that are not constructed in streams and that flow only when it rains are not covered. We listened to the public and made changes to the final rule as part of our commitment to getting it right. The Clean Water Rule will be effective 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. Visit www.epa.gov/cleanwaterrule to learn more about the final rule and the Clean Water Act. Mark Hague serves as the acting regional administrator for EPA Region 7, which consists of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and nine tribal nations. He is a resident of Kansas City, Mo.

Why doctors quit, Chapter 2 Medicine • Digital records are ine, but let technology catch up, please CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Washington Post

Holding Congress hostage to personal ambition ASSOCIATED PRESS

Politics • While the GOP hopefuls in the Senate keep playing the governing game, everyone loses DANA MILBANK Washington Post

Mike Lee of Utah is part of a vanishing breed — Republican senators who are NOT running for president — and in this role he rose on the Senate floor Tuesday morning pleading for his ambitious colleagues to stop embarrassing the party. “The American people deserve better than this,” he said, after an intra-party squabble between GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul and the Senate Republican leadership caused various counterterrorism efforts to cease. “Vital national security programs ... should not be subject to cynical, governmentby-cliff brinkmanship. If members of Congress, particularly Republican members of Congress, ever want to improve their standing among the American people, then we must abandon this habit of political gamesmanship.” Good luck with that. The game is the Republican presidential primary, and no fewer than four senators are playing. They have discovered that tying the Senate in knots is a cheap and easy way of gaining attention. But a casualty of their game is governing: turning Congress, already barely functioning, into a legislative mess. It is no small irony that Republicans are running for president by proving that their party can’t govern. The last week, Paul has been the monkey wrench in the gears, protesting NSA surveillance by delaying the (inevitable) passage of a successor to the Patriot Act and causing a suspension of wideranging efforts to thwart terrorists. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

accused Paul of “a campaign of demagoguery and disinformation” — and that’s from a guy who has endorsed his fellow Kentuckian’s White House bid. Other Republican senators called Paul a liar who puts political fundraising above the nation’s security. But McConnell has a whole set of monkey wrenches. There’s Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, whose attempt to force President Obama to change his immigration policy by threatening to shut down Homeland Security operations caused a politically damaging standoff for Republicans. Candidate Cruz also tried to block confirmation of Loretta Lynch as attorney general for the same reason. Another candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida nearly derailed a bipartisan agreement on Iran legislation when he surprised McConnell by trying to force a vote on a poison-pill amendment requiring Iran to recognize Israel as a condition of any nuclear deal. Rubio and Paul took turns wasting the Senate’s time in March, when Paul tried to make huge cuts to nondefense programs (he lost, 96-4) and Rubio proposed extra-large increases to the Pentagon budget (he lost, 68-32). Cruz, Paul and Rubio, meanwhile, have been fighting to keep the Senate from reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank, a target of conservatives, which will close at the end of the month without congressional action. On the other side of the issue is the fourth GOP presidential candidate in the Senate, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who in turn blocked consideration of trade legislation until McConnell promised to have a vote on reauthorizing the bank. At least Graham could not be blamed for anything that happened in the Senate on Tuesday: He was away, campaigning in New

Hampshire. The attention-grabbing efforts are nothing new. Paul held up Obama’s nominee to run the CIA in 2013 with a 13-hour filibuster, and he, Cruz and Rubio that year blocked the Senate from naming conferees to negotiate a budget with the House, while Graham blocked Obama nominees over the attack on Americans in Benghazi. The difference now is these presidential wannabes are disrupting the designs of their own party — and exploiting a pledge by their leader, McConnell, to make the legislative process more freewheeling. Freewheeling is exactly what McConnell got from Paul in recent days — and both men came out losers. Paul, an opponent of the Patriot Act, not only failed in his effort to block the reauthorization, but he antagonized his colleagues so much that they refused to take up his (reasonable) amendments. McConnell, a fan of the original Patriot Act, tried to outmaneuver Paul by pushing the vote to the deadline, but this miscalculation caused the Patriot Act to lapse, and McConnell failed in his bid to strengthen the new legislation. Thirty-six hours after their standoff caused the counterterrorism programs to expire, McConnell was still complaining when he opened the Senate Tuesday morning, saying Paul’s continued objections allowed “yet another day to elapse when everyone has already had a chance to say their piece ... and when the need to move forward in a thoughtful but expeditious manner seemed perfectly clear. But this is the Senate.” No, this is the Senate held hostage to presidential ambition. Dana Milbank dana.milbank@washpost.com Copyright the Washington Post

I rarely do follow-up columns. I’m averaging one every 10 years. And while my last such exercise resulted in a written apology from the White House (for accusing me of making up facts over its removal of Churchill’s bust), today’s is not a complaint. It’s merely a recognition that the huge response elicited by last week’s column, “Why Doctors Quit,” warrants both rebuttal and clarification. Physicians who responded tended to agree with my claim that doctors are being driven out of the profession by the intrusions, interferences, regulations, mandates, constraints and sundry other degradations of their vocation that are the result of the bureaucratization of medicine. Chief among them is the imposition of electronic health records (EHR). I’ve also heard from people who notice how much attention their doctor must devote to filling out EHR boxes on a computer screen rather than to engaging with them during an office visit. To the point where a heretofore unheard-of profession has been invented — the “scribe” who just enters the data so the doctor can actually do doctoring. On the other hand, my critics, vocal and many, had two major complaints. First, that I’m just a Luddite unwilling to adapt to the new digital world and looking for excuses not to. Second, that while I might have a point about the bureaucratization of medicine, could I not have made it without satisfying my anti-president tic and blaming it all on him, and my other itch and blaming it on liberalism? First, I don’t oppose going digital. Properly used, it brings many benefits. The gains, however, are not coming from massive databases attempting to cover and extend to all of medicine, but from far more narrow and tailored adaptations. In radiology, for example, one is dealing with artifacts — X-rays, CT scans, MRIs — that can be easily categorized, digitized, filed, transmitted and shared in a way impossible in the age of the shadowed X-ray film held up to backlight. The problem with the EHR, however, is that the pretense of universality leads to information collection that is largely irrelevant to the patient. And, more fundamentally, that the EHR technology, being in its infancy, is hopelessly inefficient. Hospital physicians

will tell you endless tales about the wastefulness of the data collection and how the lack of interoperability defeats the purpose of data sharing. As for my complaint about President Barack Obama and his fellow liberals: Again, I don’t oppose going electronic. What I oppose is the liberal instinct to impose doing so, giving substance to that old saw that a liberal is someone who doesn’t care what you do, as long as it’s mandatory. Why could they not leave the decision of when and how to go electronic to those who use the technology and can best judge its ripeness and usefulness? Instead, the Obama administration decided arbitrarily six years ago that EHR should be universally in use by 2015. Time being up, doctors who did not conform are now penalized through partial loss of Medicare reimbursement. In time, we will surely develop more tailored, specific and efficient datacollection systems that doctors and hospitals will adopt if only to keep up with the increasing efficiency of their digitized competitors. Why, then, the punitive mandate? I was in no way arguing that the bureaucratization of medicine began with Obama. It is the inevitable and inexorable result of the industrialization of everything from cloth making to food service, now extended to health care. My point is that, given the consequent loss of autonomy and authority of doctors, why are we compounding their demoralization by forcing an EHR mandate that robs them of both time and the satisfaction of proper patient care? Yes, in principle, vast record-collection will create mass databases that in theory could be mined to help administrators, and perhaps even to yield medical insights. But it is somewhat ironic that with incessant complaints about NSA collection of telephone metadata as an assault on privacy and civil liberties, we seem not at all disturbed by the current amassing of mountains of medical data about you and your insides, a literal and far more intrusive invasion of the self. My argument is simple. If electronic records are such a great boon — as I believe they eventually will be — they will be adopted over time as the benefits begin to exceed costs. Let the market work. Let doctors breathe. And while you’re at it, drop the Medicare penalty. Charles Krauthammer letters@charleskrauthammer.com Copyright the Washington Post

Lingren, Dr. Ronald H.

died on June 1, 2015, less than a month from his 80th birthday. He passed suddenly, but peacefully, with his children and wife by his side. Ron was born in Gowrie, Iowa June 26, 1935 - the third of four sons of a tenant farmer and a grade school teacher. He and his brothers Herb, Chuck and Ted rose from these humble beginnings to become the first in their family to graduate from college, all four achieving PhDs. He was a graduate of Iowa State University, and received his PhD from the University of Iowa, kicking off a 50-year career and leadership in the field of educational and clinical psychology. Ron's clinical psychology practice focused on counseling emotionally troubled adolescents and children. Countless patients benefited from his grounded, positive guidance and expertise. In tandem, Ron served for many years as professor of educational psychology at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, where he received the title of Professor Emeritus for his work. Ron was a founding member of the National Association of School Psychologists and served on its Executive Board. In addition, he served as president of the Wisconsin Association of School Psychologists. He was a dedicated mentor to students and future leaders in his field throughout his 50-year career. In the middle of his teaching and counseling career he served three terms as a Wisconsin State Representative (1974-80), where he served on the influential Joint Finance Committee and received multiple citations from state governors. In 1983 he was appointed by Governor Tony Earl to the Great Lakes Higher Education Board of Directors, where he served for decades. He was very proud of his 42 years serving in the US military. He served four years in the Army - including a tour in the Korean War - and was the recipient of the National Defense Service and United Nations Service medals. He served 38 years as a Major with the Air Force Reserves, and was recipient of the Armed Forces Reserve medal. In addition to being a chief weapons officer, an expert marksman, a radio operator, and a behavior scientist (code for psychologist), he served on the 1959 security detail for Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's visit to Iowa. Ron was a passionate, deeply loving, caring, and dedicated family man - a wonderful father and husband. His great sense of humor often spilled over into goofiness and shared laughter with family and friends. Yet, Ron always knew how to give great comfort to others who needed his support. He knew what to say or do when it mattered most, even a smile, a hug, or just being there. Jazz, poetry, romantic gestures, silly jokes, and sunsets - he loved them all. Ron's cats were always a big part of his life. Ron was a big sports fan as well, and was especially loyal to his Iowa Hawkeyes, Wisconsin Badgers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Green Bay Packers. Ron was privileged to travel all over the world with his wife and children, and especially enjoyed the tropical beaches of St. John USVI - but he never forgot his humble roots and was grateful for having lived such a deeply joyous life. Ron raised two children, Scott and Kristin, with his first wife Dot, with whom he always remained a friend. His marriage to Amy in 1990 brought him immense joy, and they were one month from celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary together. He also delighted in being a grandfather to Ava, the daughter of Amy's daughter Kate and her husband Paul. He is survived by his wife Amy; son Scott & his wife Theresa; daughter Kristin; Amy's daughter Kate, her husband Paul and their daughter Ava; and brothers Charles & Ted Lingren. Services: A memorial service and reception will be held this Saturday, June 6th at 1pm at the Beaches Chapel in Jacksonville Beach, Florida (1701 Beach Blvd, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250). A burial with full military honors will be scheduled for early July (date to be determined) at the Veterans National Cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida.

BLAtter stArts reForMs In another development, FIFA President Sepp Blatter has issued his first public statement since announcing his resignation two days ago, saying he has already started the process of reforming soccer’s governing body. Blatter said Tuesday he would step down amid a corruption crisis that has shaken FIFA and soccer oicials around the world. FIFA says Blatter met with audit and compliance chairman Domenico Scala on Thursday to “instigate meaningful reform of the administration and structure of FIFA.” “I had a good, constructive meeting with Mr. Scala to establish a framework for action and a timetable. I am pleased to take advice and guidance from Mr. Scala,” Blatter said. “I want a comprehensive program of reform and I am very aware that only the FIFA Congress can pass these reforms. Furthermore, the Executive Committee has a particular duty to share the responsibility of driving this process.” Meanwhile, military intelligence officers have raided the headquarters of the Venezuelan Football Federation. Venezuela’s public prosecutor’s office said agents raided the Venezuelan organization’s oices Wednesday to gather evidence for a criminal investigation.

Islamic State makes water a weapon in ight against Iraq AssociAted Press

BAGHDAD • Islamic State militants have reduced the amount of water flowing to government-held areas in Iraq’s western Anbar province, officials said Thursday, a move that highlights the use of water as a weapon of war and puts more pressure on Iraqi forces struggling to claw back ground held by the extremists in the Sunni heartland. The development is not the first time that water has been used as a weapon in Mideast conflicts and in Iraq in particular. This year, the Islamic State group reduced the flow through a lock outside the militant-held town of Fallujah, also in Anbar province. But the extremists soon reopened it after criticism from residents. Last summer, Islamic State militants took control of the Mosul Dam — the largest in Iraq — and threatened to flood Baghdad and other major cities, but Iraqi and Kurdish forces, backed by U.S. airstrikes, later recaptured the facility. The battle for the dam followed Islamic State’s blitz across much of western and northern Iraq earlier last year, an advance that captured key Anbar cities and also Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city that lies to the north of Baghdad. The Islamic State group also gained large swaths of land in neighboring Syria and proclaimed a self-styled caliphate on the territory it controls, imposing its harsh interpretation of Islamic law, or Sharia. Last month, Islamic State captured

Ramadi, the provincial capital of Anbar, marking its most significant victory since a U.S.-led coalition began an air campaign against the extremists last August. On Wednesday, Islamic State militants closed the locks on a militant-held dam on the Euphrates River near Ramadi, reducing the flow downstream and threatening irrigation systems and water treatment plants in nearby areas controlled by troops and tribes opposed to the extremist group. Anbar councilman, Taha Abdul-Ghani said the move will not only make the lives of people living in the afected areas more diicult but it could also pose a threat to the security forces fighting to recapture Ramadi. If water levels drop significantly, he said, the extremists could cross the Euphrates River on foot. “The militants might take advantage of that and attack troops deployed along the river” and the nearby Habaniya military base, AbdulGhani told The Associated Press. The base has been used as a staging ground for Iraqi troops and allied Shiite militias in the fight against the militants in Ramadi and surrounding areas. Thousands of people in governmentheld towns of Khalidiya and Habaniya are already suffering from shortages of drinking water because purification plants along the Euphrates have all but shut down because of already low water levels on account of the summer weather. The residents of the towns get only two hours a day of water through their pipes, he said.

DIGEST Boycott against Israel grows

Dierbergs Florist

Honor Visit Us At:

FIFA has admitted to writing of a $5 million loan to Ireland in compensation for missing out on the 2010 World Cup after a controversial noncall led to a French victory over Ireland. The payment, initially a loan, was not disclosed by the world soccer governing body following the 2009 playoff game, which France won 2-1 on aggregate to reach the finals in South Africa. The cash from FIFA was first disclosed in public on Thursday by Football Association of Ireland chief executive John Delaney, who didn’t say it was a loan. FIFA says it granted the loan “to put an end to any claims against FIFA,” but it would have to be reimbursed if Ireland qualified for the 2014 World Cup. After Ireland failed to qualify, FIFA says the loan was written of. Meanwhile, Qatar’s foreign minister says racism is behind the allegations that his country was wrongly awarded the 2022 World Cup, and he denounced the furor surrounding the widening FIFA scandal. Khalid Bin Mohammad Al Attiyah, visiting Tunisia, said on Thursday that his country cooperated with American investigators and was cleared of any suspicion. “Unfortunately, there are some parties that cannot swallow the fact of an Arab and Muslim country hosting this competition,” he said. “This cup will take place for the first time in the history of football and sport in an Arab country.”

The British government says England is ready to step in and host the 2022 World Cup if the tournament is stripped from Qatar amid the corruption scandal engulfing FIFA.

French telecom giant Orange SA’s declaration that it wants to cut business ties with Israel has given a boost to the burgeoning anti-Israel boycott movement while also drawing a sharp rebuke from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday. The move bodes poorly for Israel at a time of growing international anger over its West Bank settlements and could potentially put almost any Israeli company in the crosshairs of the boycott campaign. It also has illustrated just how deeply intertwined Israeli settlements are with the rest of the country. Netanyahu responded angrily on Thursday, calling on “the French government to publicly repudiate the miserable statement and miserable action by a company that is under its partial ownership.” Fatal gas station blast in Ghana • The death toll from a huge gas station explosion and looding in Ghana’s capital has more than doubled to 150 people, the president said Thursday night. Dozens of people had sought shelter at the gas station and in nearby shops in central Accra to escape the torrential rains at the time of Wednesday night’s blast. Flooding swept fuel being stored at the station into a nearby ire, triggering the explosion that also set ablaze neighboring buildings, oicials said. Jailed mayor’s hunger strike rallies Venezuelan opposition • A hunger strike by two high-proile imprisoned politicians is generating excitement among members of a Venezuelan opposition that has seemed mostly disengaged since 2014’s iery protests. Seven students have spent the past week camped out in the dusty front yard of a Caracas church drinking nothing but

water and Pedialyte in sympathy with jailed former mayors Leopoldo Lopez and Daniel Ceballos, who announced their hunger strike on May 23. China prepares to turn capsized ship • Chinese authorities on Friday morning began preliminary work on righting a cruise liner that capsized this week with 456 people aboard, saying they had given up hope of inding more survivors. Just 14 people are known to have survived the late Monday disaster on the Yangtze River, while 77 bodies have been recovered, leaving 365 people, most retirement-age tourists, unaccounted for, state media reported. Meanwhile, hundreds of relatives of the passengers gathered in a public square in the town of Jianli, about a 90-minute drive from the site of the disaster, clutching candles and lowers. Some knelt with tears in their eyes, Reuters news agency reported. Burundi elections postponed • Presidential and parliamentary elections have been postponed in Burundi, an oicial said Thursday, following weeks of unrest in the capital over President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid for a third term in oice. Regional bloc East African Community on Sunday asked the Burundian government to postpone elections for at least 45 days and to use the time to ensure that there is a conducive environment to hold the polls. More than 90,000 Burundians have led the country fearing violence. Burundi has had a long history of political upheaval that has been characterized by political assassinations and coups. Oicials are waiting for a proposal from the electoral commission on the new dates for elections, said Willy Nyamitwe, presidential adviser for media and information. From news services

suburban Chicago man who says he always wanted to know what it is like to smash through a garage door now knows the feeling. Walter Thomas, 91, of Woodstock, was able to slam an SUV through a garage door with his family’s help. The garage was slated to be torn down, so Thomas’ action was of no consequence. Thomas described what he did this way: “I hit the gas, squealed the tires and bang, we went through the door.” Thomas says he doesn’t know what he could to top that.

New equipment could end drunken driving • A technological breakthrough that could virtually eliminate the drunken driving that kills 10,000 Americans each year was announced Thursday by federal oicials, who said it could begin appearing in cars in ive years. A passive set of breath sensors or touchsensitive contact points on a starter button or gear shift would immediately register the level of alcohol in the bloodstream. Drivers who registered above the legal limit wouldn’t be able to start the car.

Clinton blasts GOP on voting rights • Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton lambasted Republicans Thursday for backing laws that she says make it more diicult for people to vote, including the young, old and minorities.

EPA says fracking doesn’t harm water • Hydraulic fracturing to drill for oil and natural gas has not caused widespread harm to drinking water in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency said Thursday in a report that also warned of potential contamination of water supplies if safeguards are not maintained. A draft study issued by the agency found speciic instances where poorly constructed drilling wells or improper wastewater management afected drinking water, but said the number of cases was small compared to the large number of wells that use hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking.

A Boston man shot to death by the terrorism investigators who were surveilling him had talked about beheading blogger Pamela Geller before deciding to target police oicers, Boston police said Thursday. Geller wasn’t surprised that she may have been a target. She’s a combative personality known for provoking Muslims. Usaama Rahim, 26, was killed Tuesday by antiterrorism investigators who tried to question him. Ronald Sullivan, a Harvard Law professor and the Rahim family lawyer, said the family considered Rahim “an energetic young man trying to make his way in this world” and saw no behavior or changes in demeanor that would lead them to suspect he would espouse violence.

Duggar interview a hit • Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly reached 3.1 million viewers for the irst part of her interview with TLC’s Duggar family about their son’s sexual misconduct, her largest audience of the year. The Nielsen company said Kelly’s show on Wednesday doubled its typical audience among younger viewers. Her nightly show averages 2.2 million viewers. The parents who star in TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” acknowledged their son Josh fondled ive girls, including four of his sisters, about a dozen years ago. Their reality show has been put on hold by TLC since reports of Josh’s behavior surfaced two weeks ago, and the network would not comment Thursday on the Duggar interview. Kelly will air the second part of her interview, with two of the sisters who were Josh’s victims, on Friday. Popular cover • Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter knew Caitlyn Jenner’s cover would be popular, but this popular? That was a surprise. “I knew it would be a thing. I had no idea how big a thing it would be. We decided to work with the Internet rather than just complain about the Internet as a monthly magazine, and it turned out to be amazing,” Carter said Thursday while seated front row at a Gucci cruisewear fashion show. By “working,” Carter meant the magazine’s choice to release the cover on social media and simultaneously ofer prospective readers the chance to buy the article on iTunes for $4.99. Soon after, Jenner herself helped break the Internet with a new Twitter account that set a record for the fastest trajectory to 1 million followers — up to 2.37 million four days later. She also amassed 1.5 million followers on Instagram.

DISCOUNT ON INSURING MINE CLEANUP COSTS MAY BE AT RISK

PEABODY FACES SCRUTINY HOW PEABODY AVOIDS INSURANCE COSTS By applying through ailiates, the world’s largest coal company has trimmed cleanup liabilities

1

U.S. coal companies are obliged to clean up exhausted mines. That liability reaches billions of dollars.

2

Peabody Energy, the world’s largest privately owned coal company, has been allowed to leave a share of its liabilities uninsured through a program called self-bonding.

6

Instead, Peabody Energy has used subsidiaries to qualify for selfbonding.

Medicaid expansion beneits touted

While securities filings indicate Peabody Energy does not qualify to self-bond, filings for the subsidiaries are kept confidential, allowing no way to verify.

After qualifying for self-bonding for years, Peabody Energy failed in late 2013. At that point, arguably, it needed more insurance. If the parent company were to fail (as some investors now expect) it could bring the ailiate down as well.

BY PATRICK RUCKER Reuters

WASHINGTON • Coal giant Peabody Energy has been among the harshest critics of federal energy policies, joining a court challenge to the Obama administration’s new clean air regulations and denouncing its promotion of renewable fuels. But Peabody has relied on one government program for years: the practice known as “self-bonding,” which gives coal companies a discount on insuring their cleanup

costs in case of bankruptcy. Now, Reuters has learned that the nation’s leading coal industry regulator is examining the program and whether companies including Peabody still qualify for the break. The reason: slumping coal prices and declining demand have put industry balance sheets under stress, raising questions about whether Peabody, the world’s largest private coal company, and other coal firms meet the financial criteria to See PEABODY • Page B4

TWO-TIER WAGE ISSUE GETS PERSONAL FOR UAW TWO CLASSES OF WORKERS

White House data build a case for Missouri, other states

Longtime employees can earn $28 an hour; second-tier workers, hired after 2007, make $16 to $19.

BY JORDAN SHAPIRO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A report released by the White House on Wednesday outlined the financial and health benefits for Missouri if the state decides to add more low-income residents to the Medicaid program. But it’s likely to have little efect, especially in the short term, on Missouri’s debate. The analysis is the latest in a series of studies that have sought to use empirical data to build a case for expanding Medicaid programs across the country. President Barack Obama’s health law gives states the option to use mostly federal dollars to add more people to Medicaid, government-funded insurance for the poor. Many conservative states, including Missouri, have resisted. They cite concerns about the long-term costs and a preference to reform the existing program before expanding eligibility. Even if the report were to change the minds of Missouri lawmakers, they have already concluded their annual session and aren’t scheduled to return until January. The Republicanled Legislature approved a budget plan this year without Medicaid expansion funding and legislative leaders have said it is a “non-starter.” The White House report mirrors other studies, including one from the University of Missouri, that lay out both economic and health benefits to enlarged Medicaid programs. Wednesday’s study found that See MEDICAID • Page B5

FAMILY DIVIDES Plant transfer restrictions can mean a long-distance arrangement for families.

DAVID EULITT • Kansas City Star

UAW workers at the General Motors Fairfax Assembly and Stamping Plant in Kansas City, Kan., listen to then-GM CEO Dan Akerson as he announces in January 2013 a $600 million investment in the plant.

BY BERNIE WOODALL Reuters

KANSAS CITY, KAN. • For United Auto Workers union members Jermaine and Akema Austin, a two-tier wage system at General Motors Co. is not just business, it’s personal. GM has two classes of UAW workers — longtime “first-tier” employees, who earn about $28 an hour, and “second-tier” workers hired after 2007, who earn about $16 to $19 an hour.

Startup index is a reality check Kaufman Foundation ranks metro area 38th of 40 cities DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

St. Louis has plenty of entrepreneurial buzz these days. It seems infectious in places like the T-Rex technology incubator downtown or the Cambridge

Innovation Center in the Central West End. Our numbers, however, don’t match the buzz. The Kauffman Foundation, which studies entrepreneurship, just updated its index of startup activity and St. Louis ranks 38th — third from last — among the nation’s 40 biggest metropolitan areas.

When Jermaine Austin, a first-tier worker at GM’s car plant in Kansas City, Kan., put in for a transfer to GM’s factory in Arlington, Texas, where the company builds large sport utility vehicles, he assumed his wife, a “second-tier” Kansas City worker would have no

The Austins are on opposite sides of the divide. Detroit automakers, which pushed for and won the twotier system in negotiations with the union, say the freedom to hire workers at lower wages has helped them recover from neardeath in the recession and add thousands of U.S. jobs in recent years. But as the Detroit companies and the UAW head into contract talks this summer, the divisions the two-tier wage system

In other words, no matter how much we tout our accelerator programs, cool co-working spaces and improved access to capital, St. Louisans still aren’t launching many new businesses. The startup rate — the proportion of adults who start a See NICKLAUS • Page B5

AT THE BIG CORNER OF I-270 & NORTH LINDBERGH BLVD. BUSINESS DIGEST World Wide buys Asynchrony • World Wide Technology has purchased St. Louis software development irm Asynchrony Inc. The Maryland Heightsbased information technologies management and integration company did not disclose a price. “The strategic acquisition will allow WWT to deliver complete end-to-end business solutions, including custom user-facing software and the systems and infrastructure that support it,” World Wide Technology CEO Jim Kavanaugh said in a statement. It acquired Asynchrony from Schafer Corp., an Arlington, Va., military contractor that acquired Asynchrony in 2010. World Wide Technology is also a large supplier to government agencies in addition to commercial clients. It employs 3,000 people, including about 1,500 to 1,700 in the St. Louis region. Asynchrony employs about 200 people, according to its website. “Our expertise in mobility and application development are an ideal complement to WWT’s vast knowledge of systems architecture,” Bob Elfanbaum, co-founder and general manager of Asynchrony, said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to working together to deliver end-to-end solutions for our growing client base.” Help for homeowners • Hope Now Alliance and Beyond Housing are bringing mortgage servicers and representatives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to St. Louis to help struggling homeowners.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac oicials, plus housing experts from Beyond Housing also will be on hand. Fiat admits recall delays • Fiat Chrysler is admitting that it missed legal deadlines to notify customers in ive safety recalls. The missed deadlines could bring a ine from the U.S. National Highway Traic Safety Administration. The agency plans to hold a public hearing July 2 on the company’s performance in 20 diferent recalls. The missed deadlines were revealed in Fiat Chrysler’s response to questions from the agency before the hearing. The response was released on Thursday. Automakers must notify customers within 60 days after telling the government about a recall. Four of the ive misses were four days or less, but one was 12 days late. Company spokesman Eric Mayne said owners in that case had already been notiied. The missed deadlines happened when the company decided to change the recall repair. Mazda recalls • Mazda Motor Corp. has expanded to 444,907 a recall of U.S. cars equipped with potentially defective Takata air

bags, the automaker said in a notice posted on Thursday with the National Highway Traic Safety Administration. Since Takata’s May 18 disclosure, eight of 10 automakers that use Takata air bags have either expanded earlier recalls or initiated a new recall, and one other has said potentially defective parts are covered by previous recalls. Mazda recalled 328,243 sedans a year ago because the inlators in the Takata air bags could rupture. The latest expansion, which adds 116,664 vehicles, covers the Mazda6 and RX-8. Productivity falls • U.S. worker productivity declined more sharply in the irst three months of the year than previously thought, while labor costs rose more quickly. Productivity fell at a 3.1 percent rate in the irst quarter, a bigger drop than the 1.9 percent decline estimated a month ago, the Labor Department reported Thursday. Labor costs rose at a 6.7 percent rate in the irst quarter, faster than 5 percent rise irst estimated. Jobless claims drop • Fewer Americans sought unemployment beneits last week, a sign that job cuts remain low as employers are conident enough in the business outlook to hold onto their stafs. The Labor Department says applications for unemployment aid dropped 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 276,000. The four-week average, a less volatile igure, ticked up 2,750 to 274,750. Applications have been below 300,000, a historically low level, for 13 weeks. The low number indicates that Americans are enjoying solid job security. From staf and wire reports

Dish said to be in talks to merge with T-Mobile Key to deal may be partners’ use of wireless spectrum REutERs

Just four months ago, T-Mobile US Inc. Chief Executive John Legere warned consumers that results of a U.S. airwaves auction “should scare the hell out of you” because winning bids by Dish Network Corp. and bigger phone companies threatened competition. Now Legere is in talks to merge T-Mobile US Inc. and Dish Network Corp., said a source familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss the confidential negotiations. A decisive factor is how the partners would use the spectrum Dish has been buying up over the years. T-Mobile, based in Bellevue, Wash., would leapfrog its biggest rivals Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. to have the second largest stash of airwaves behind the No. 3 provider Sprint Corp., which has struggled to build out networks, said Recon Analytics analyst Roger Entner, who saw irony in the merger talks. “Everybody is an opponent until you’re bedmates,” said Entner. Dish CEO Charlie Ergen “went and bought spectrum like there’s no tomorrow because there is no tomorrow without spectrum.” Englewood, Colo.-based Dish and T-Mobile have in the past entertained a potential deal, which would be the latest in a

wave of tie-ups in the telecom and pay-TV industries as companies look to ofer more services for customers. Earlier this year, Ergen said he was “impressed” by the wireless carrier and Legere said it made sense for his company to team up with Dish. The satellite provider could offer up to $40 per share in cash and stock for T-Mobile, according to an early estimate by Macquarie analyst Amy Yong. The merger talks are at an early stage and important aspects such as a price and structure have yet to be determined, the source said. Ergen has in the past walked away from other deals at the last minute. Dish in recent years has amassed spectrum, radio frequencies that carry the growing amounts of data flowing through devices, without building out infrastructure to offer its own wireless service. The company recently launched an online streaming video service, Sling TV, to ofset the loss of pay-TV subscribers. T-Mobile has recently turned around years of subscriber losses with cut-price deals, marketing and wireless plans, but customer gains have pressured the carrier’s margins. T-Mobile has also been reported as looking to buy spectrum from smaller rivals. Dish rose 4.9 percent to close at $74.25 on Nasdaq, and TMobile ended 2.6 percent higher at $39.34. T-Mobile’s majority owner Deutsche Telekom closed up 2.38 percent. Representatives at all three companies declined to comment.

Accelerator helps emerging nonproits grow Brentwood-based nonproit ofers afordable workspace and support services BY KoUIchI ShIrAYANAGI St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Small nonprofit organizations that are looking for a place to grow have a new option in Brentwood. The Nonprofit Services Center, a 20-year-old group that assists other nonprofits in the region, recently launched Strong Start, which provides afordable workspace and support services for small nonprofit organizations.

BEST OF BUILDING BLOCKS .com Highlights from our real estate and development blog: STLtoday.com/ buildingblocks. St. Charles County industrial thriving • Commercial real estate company DTZ said the St. Charles County industrial market is thriving, largely as a result of expansion by General Motors in Wentzville. Only 2.6 percent of the county’s industrial space is vacant, compared with 6.5 percent in the overall St. Louis metro market, DTZ said. St. Charles County has only one building availability of more than 100,000 contiguous square feet. DTZ said that as a result rents will rise and new construction announcements are likely in the next 12 months. (06.04) Single-family home permits up • Building permits for single-family homes in the St. Louis area are up 15 percent in 2015 compared with last year, the Home Builders Association of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri said. The higher numbers for April over the same month last year show a release of pent-up demand and evidence of a sustainable recovery, said Jef Schindler, the HBA’s president. Afordable prices and low interest rates mean the market’s upward momentum should continue, he said in a statement. HBA numbers for April show that St. Charles County had the most single-family home permits issued, totaling 190, compared with 147 last year. (06.04) Gershman forms new irm • Gershman Commercial Real Estate said it has formed Gershman Commercial Equities to acquire and manage investment property. Co-founders are Tom Stern, chairman of Gershman Commercial Real Estate, and Joe McGauley, president of Gershman Commercial Equities. The new irm’s focus is to acquire and reposition oice, industrial, retail and mixeduse properties in the St. Louis area and other cities within 250 miles. Equity will come from the Gershman family, private syndicated investors and institutional partners, the company said. (06.03)

Strong Start, housed on the second floor of the Society of the Blind Building, at 8764 Manchester Road, ofers oice space and other services to up to 23 different 501(c)(3) organizations. The $12.93 per square foot rental rate includes utilities, surface parking, housekeeping and meeting space. The space, adjacent to the NSC oices, was made available when the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, a long-term tenant, moved to its own building at 9355 Olive Boulevard in Olivette, said Amanda Cook, a NSC spokeswoman. Cook said the idea for Strong Start came from conversations

between Diane Drollinger, NSC chief executive, and David Ekin, president of the Society of the Blind & Visually Impaired. “Both of our organizations service the community and we want to make the most out of the space,” Cook said. In addition to providing oice space, NSC also offers training courses on nonprofit management, charging $60 to $90 per course. Topics covered include volunteer management, nonprofit governance, applying for grants and developing leadership skills. LoveU2Pieces, an organization that helps children on the autism spectrum, was the first tenant

to move in about two weeks ago, Cook said. Applications have been submitted for about half of the available space already. Leigh Rolnicki, a licensed professional counselor and executive director of LoveU2Pieces, said before moving into the Strong Start space, she was renting spaces in churches and moving equipment to new locations every time she had a programming session. “Consistency is good for kids with autism and the Strong Start space gives us an opportunity to provide our kids with that consistency,” Rolnicki said. “We can aford the place.” Rolnicki said that Strong Start

had her sign a three-year lease because that is the length of time organizations need to make a difference in their growth. The price of rent will not be raised over the duration of the lease. Rolnicki attended Nonprofit Services Center training seminars on marketing and honing organizational missions that she said were helpful; both seminars were attended by more than 20 people. LoveU2Pieces currently serves 16 children in three diferent age groups, and Rolnicki hopes that having her own space will help her organization expand.

A transfer made harder in the second tier UAW • from B1

trouble moving, too. But when Jermaine Austin’s transfer came through, the family learned that his wife’s status makes transferring harder for her. As a second-tier worker, she has no preferential standing in applying for a job at the Texas plant, and if she were offered a job, she would lose the seniority she has built in Kansas City, resulting in a cut to her $16.66 per hour pay. The family decided that Jermaine Austin should take the job, which is nearer to relatives, and hope that his wife and their five daughters, ages 2 to 17, would be able to follow somehow. Both husband and wife say they love making cars for GM. “The company has done our family well,” Akema Austin said. But they find living apart diicult. “I thought once we were both working at the same place, if we move again, we both go,” Akema Austin said. The Austin family’s dilemma is an emotionally charged example of why UAW President Dennis Williams is under pressure from rank-and-file union members to overhaul the two-tier wage system in contract talks this summer with the Detroit Three automakers. For decades, the UAW fought to get comparable pay for union members doing similar work. But in 2007, as the Detroit automakers were starting to bleed cash, UAW leaders agreed to create two classes of workers — in effect, protecting current members at the expense of future ones. Those hired after 2007 would be paid as much as 45 percent less and have less generous benefits as well as limited transfer rights. The Detroit manufacturers will be reluctant to make major changes to the current wage structure, which has narrowed the cost gap with non-union auto plants run by foreign automakers in the southern United States. They point out that the lower labor costs have enabled them to add jobs. GM, for example, has

hired 3,650 new UAW workers since 2011, when the current UAW contract was signed. But as the number of secondtier workers has increased — they now account for about 20 percent of the union members working for GM, 29 percent of those at Ford Motor Co. and 45 percent of those at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV — their clout has increased. Rank-and-file UAW workers are pushing for the gap to be addressed in this year’s negotiations, saying that because the automakers are profitable, the two-tier wage system should go. Williams has vowed to narrow the gap between the classes of workers but has cautioned that it may take more than one multiyear contract to accomplish that. One thing the second-tier

workers would like to see is a clear path to first-tier wages and benefits. “There is something fundamentally wrong with having two people doing the same job making grossly diferent wages,” said Mike Young, a second-tier worker at GM’s Kansas City plant. “It’s one thing to think, ‘I could work here five years and get to what she makes’ rather than ‘I could work here for 30 years and never make what she makes.’” Travis Werths, 32, who is also in the lower wage group at the GM Kansas City plant, says the union leadership needs to make significant gains in eliminating the two-tier system. “If it goes bad, I think there’s going to be a lot of people who drop out of the union,” said Werths. “I think there’s enough

people who have had enough to where they don’t feel like they’re getting a fair shake.” Williams and UAW leaders have said they want to “bridge the gap” to the point that second-tier workers are happy with the result of this year’s talks. General Motors, in a statement, said the company is prepared to “look at a range of options with our UAW partners on solutions that lead to an agreement that benefits employees and improves GM’s competitiveness.” Ford executives have made similar comments. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV chief executive Sergio Marchionne has said he wants to eliminate the two-tier system and peg more of a worker’s pay to the company’s performance.

No company taps the bonding program more than Peabody PEABoDY • from B1

self-bond. “Our team will examine all aspects of bonding and selfbonding,” said Chris Holmes, a spokesman for the Oice of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, part of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Without government backing, coal companies would have to pay market rates to insure the billions of dollars required to restore old mines and ravaged landscapes back to health. Peabody, which reported a $787 million loss in 2014, says it remains entitled to use the program, which was conceived under the 1977 Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act. Peabody had roughly $1.38 billion in cleanup liabilities insured by selfbonding at the end of March. “Peabody and its various operating subsidiaries meet their U.S. reclamation bonding obligations,” said Vic Svec, a company spokesman. Those subsidiaries, however, are also under scrutiny from regulators because Peabody is relying on their balance sheets to self-bond as its own finances worsen. “If a parent company is not fit to self-bond, how can the subsidiary qualify? That is something we’re looking at now,” said an OSMRE oicial who was not authorized to talk about the review. Regulators have become concerned about the use of selfbonding amid a precipitous decline in the coal industry’s financial health.

The shares of many major coal companies — including Peabody — have fallen by more than 90 percent in the past four years, and industry analysts warn that near-term bankruptcies are a real danger. Last week, coal regulators in Wyoming stripped Alpha Natural Resources, another leading coal company, of its right to selfbond after determining that its finances were too weak. Alpha’s right to self-bond in West Virginia was frozen after the company’s 2014 securities filings showed it did not meet crucial financial benchmarks. Alpha says the company expects to convince state officials that it has not lost the right to self bond. The stubborn downturn alarms officials concerned about future cleanups, said Greg Conrad, director of the Interstate Mining Compact Commission which speaks for coal-producing states. “This is the first time we’ve seen this: a downturn in the coal industry raising questions about self-bonds,” he said. He added that uncertainty about cleanup costs should not leave “taxpayers being saddled with the bill.”

USING AffILIATES Self-bonding was conceived in 1977 as part of legislation designed to shield taxpayers from the costs of cleaning up abandoned mines. The program was uncontroversial when coal companies boasted strong balance sheets. The country’s four largest coal companies — Peabody, Alpha,

Arch Coal Inc. and Cloud Peak Energy — together have about $2.7 billion in clean-up costs covered by self-bonding, according to securities filings and regulators. No mining company taps the self-bond program more extensively than St. Louis-based Peabody. The company self-bonds across the Midwest and Mountain States, from Indiana and Illinois to Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado. Federal regulations require a mining company of Peabody’s size to have a strong credit rating or robust balance sheet to qualify for self-bonding. Specifically, it must have a ratio of total liabilities to net worth of 2.5 times or less, and a ratio of current assets to current liabilities of 1.2 times or greater. A Reuters review of securities filings found that Peabody failed both those tests at the end of 2014. Creve Coeur-based Arch Coal, the other leading coal company to use ailiates to self-bond, failed the liabilities to net worth test. Arch Western Resources, an affiliate that Arch Coal uses to selfbond, is in compliance with state requirements, said Arch Coal spokeswoman Logan Bonacorsi. With major credit rating firms categorizing Peabody corporate bonds as “highly speculative,” or ‘junk,’ the company has found other ways to qualify for selfbonding. In many states, Peabody does so through an affiliate, Peabody Investments Corp. Financial records are not pub-

licly available for Peabody Investments Corp., and state mining oicials have denied Reuters requests to disclose them. “Peabody requests its information remain confidential and exempt from the Freedom of Information Act,” said Chris Young of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Officials in Colorado, Wyoming, Indiana and New Mexico also said the company was opposed to publicly disclosing financial data about Peabody Investments Corp. Peabody Energy says its reliance on affiliate companies is within the rules. “Where we are self-bonding, the applicant companies are in full compliance with the various state and federal requirements,” said Peabody spokesman Svec. Compliance may depend on interpretation of self-bond standards, which state that a company may qualify if financial conditions are met “by the applicant or its parent corporation guarantor.” Some lawyers say that language may have been meant to allow smaller coal companies to lean on the strength of their wellfinanced parent — but never the other way around. “It’s hard to see how anyone could say that this arrangement meets either the letter or the intent of the rules,” said Mark Squillace, the former director of the University of Colorado Environmental Law Program. Reuters reporter Dan Burns of New York contributed.

FIVE QUESTION WITH U.S. REP. JOHN SHIMKUS

Juggling the debate over energy, climate change By JacoB Barker St. Louis Post-dispatch

U.S. Rep. John Shimkus, R-Collinsville, has represented part of the Metro East and Southern Illinois since 1997. In the past two decades, he has risen to become a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where he chairs its Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy. Shimkus recently sat down with the Post-Dispatch to talk about the House’s actions in that arena. A transcribed interview is below, edited for clarity, length and context. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, has started to work on an energy package in that chamber. Has anything started to happen yet on the House side in terms of a comprehensive energy bill? (The House bill) is really more focused on the grid, kind of cybersecurity issues on the grid. It does bring into debate the importance of baseload generation and the concern some of us have about relying too much on small producers at the risk of causing dislocation and increased costs. We know air and water are getting cleaner. The question is how clean is clean, and then do you start afecting major generation like coal-fired power plants and nuclear power plants? If they start going offline, trying to replace that generation with straight renewables, which is really solar and wind, is really just not doable. We’re just not there yet. Might something eventually come together with Senate legislation, and are we due for a fresh look at our energy policy? That’s assuming the Senate moves (a bill). We can move our bills off the floor pretty easily. The question is can we move bills of the floor that have huge bipartisan support to give us more leverage in conference and that the president might actually sign. Those aren’t always the same. But you always have to start.

Rep. John Shimkus, pictured at the Post-Dispatch, predicts higher costs if environmental rules are tightened.

Age • 57 Title • U.S. representative Career • Five years active duty in the U.S. Army and 23 years in the Army Reserves. Retired at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 2008. Taught at Metro East Lutheran High School in Edwardsville until leaving to campaign in 1990 and winning election as Madison County treasurer.

Lives in Collinsville and Washington.

then ask the question what happens if they’re not there, or you start removing some of these major generators from what we call the portfolio. Illinois is a net exporter of power. We produce more power than we consume, but if we start decommissioning generation because of environmental rules and regulations, then you have constrained production, which means you’re going to have higher costs. So then what is that going to do the manufacturing base? So far, manufacturing is returning to the United States. One of the reasons is our energy prices are low. But if they don’t stay low, then do we risk losing or not growing the manufacturing base?

... No one professes to drafting the perfect bill. If they do, they’re not being realistic. ... I’m just concerned based upon the challenges that baseload has. Major coal generation and nuclear generation both are challenged. I would just challenge anyone to look at how many megawatts are produced by these facilities, and there are a lot, and

Speaking of bipartisanship, your subcommittee unanimously passed a reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act last month, and the full Energy and Commerce Committee has now unanimously endorsed it.

Beneits for thousands, report says MEDICAID • froM B1

191,000 currently uninsured Missourians could gain coverage if the state expands eligibility by 2016. Without that expansion, the report estimates Missouri would waive $1.37 billion in federal money next year. The study also took a deeper dive into the potential health benefits from expansion. It found that thousands more residents would be able to receive mammograms and cholesterol screenings next year if they had Medicaid. In addition, it found that fewer residents would sufer from depression and 25,000 more would report having good or excellent health. The report “leaves no doubt that the consequences of states’ decisions are far-reaching, with major implications for the health of their citizens and their economies,” wrote Jason Furman, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Missouri advocates agreed with the

report’s assessment but also conceded that it won’t move the needle of the state’s political debate. “I wish our legislators were more responsive to data,” said Jen Bersdale, executive director of Missouri Health Care For All. “But there is a blatant disregard for really clear data that shows this is the right thing to do.” But opponents say such studies and data miss the mark when evaluating whether states should expand Medicaid eligibility. Patrick Ishmael, a researcher at the conservative Show-Me Institute, said the current program is “deeply broken” and that adding more people to it would be irresponsible and immoral. The report “is meant to drive the conversation in a way that is beneficial to individuals who support the Afordable Care Act,” he said.

Immigrants key to a startup culture NICKLAUS • froM B1

business in an average month — is just 0.16 percent in metro St. Louis, far below the national average of 0.31 percent. We also ranked below average on the two other numbers that go into the Kauffman index: a measure of startup density and an indicator of whether firms are being founded out of opportunity or necessity. The main reasons for our dismal performance are familiar: We’re an aging Rust Belt city with relatively few immigrants. Immigrants are almost twice as likely as native-born Americans to take the risk of starting a business, and a slow-growing population means fewer opportunities to start shops and restaurants in new neighborhoods. The cities ranking below St. Louis — Milwaukee and last-place Pittsburgh — share similar demographics. Even Minneapolis, with its fast-growing medical device industry, can’t escape the Midwestern malaise. It ranks 37th, just ahead of St. Louis. With few exceptions, the nation’s startup hotbeds are in the South and West. Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota, the three top-ranked states for startups, all benefited from the oil and gas boom. (Missouri ranked 27th among the states, down from 18th a year ago. Illinois climbed to 26th from 35th.) So, is geography destiny? Are we fooling ourselves to think that new biotech and mobile-software firms can move the needle on our Rust Belt economy? Dedric Carter, Washington University’s associate vice chancellor for innova-

tion and entrepreneurship, doesn’t think so. He believes St. Louis’ pro-entrepreneurship efforts are simply too new to show up in Kaufman’s calculations. “We are planting seeds and tending them, but we still have to watch them grow,” Carter said. “It’s not surprising to me that in a one- or two-year period we are in the bottom ranks.” The dismal ranking is, however, a contrast with other favorable mentions of St. Louis. Popular Mechanics, for example, recently called us the best startup city in America. The magazine took note of things like the Arch Grants program and the area’s many co-working spaces. Carter says Popular Mechanics was looking for leading indicators that suggest future growth, while Kaufman was examining the harsh reality of here and now. “The investments that we’ve made have not yet had a chance to bear fruit in an index like this,” he said. If nothing else, the index should serve as a reality check, reminding us not to declare victory based on buzz alone. Places like T-Rex and CIC didn’t exist five years ago, nor did sources of money like Arch Grants, Capital Innovators and Cultivation Capital. They’ve created activity that wasn’t here before and changed St. Louis’ image as a big-company town where it was tough to start a business. That’s progress, but the numbers say we still have a long way to go. David Nicklaus • 314-340-8213 @dnickbiz on Twitter dnicklaus@post-dispatch.com

tisan support? The desire is for our Environmental Protection Agency to analyze new chemicals that are going to be used in the consumer market for safety, whether that’s for consumption by individuals or handling or the process of manufacturing. (The EPA does) a pretty good job with new chemicals. They do a terrible job going back and trying to figure out the 8,800 chemicals that are already in the consumer markets that they don’t have the time, efort or energy to evaluate. Everybody thinks they should do a better job of evaluating existing chemicals that are being used in society. ... I think what’s brought us together is the law that was passed in 1976 was flawed, and both sides know that we can do better. While the bills would significantly revamp U.S. chemical regulations, the House version is not as all-encompassing as the Senate version. Do you think something will be worked out between the two chambers while keeping together the coalition behind the bills? It’s safe to say (the House bill) is narrower. I’m not really worried about how far apart they are right now, I’m just worried about them getting through the chambers with good votes. It’s then a process of education. We’ve educated the subcommittee, and then we’ll educate the full committee and then the whole floor has to have buyin. Members are gonna go, ‘I’m voting on TSCA? I don’t even know what that is.’ They’ll call our committee, and I’ve met with some people outside the committee process to get them prepared for this bill. Then there’ll be a little bit of “a bipartisan bill, something this complex?” Then questions will be raised on both sides. Democrats and the environmental community will say, “well, they must have sold out to the Republicans.” Then the conservatives and anti-EPA crowd will say, “well, the Republicans must have sold out to the

Democrats.” And I think the truth is somewhere in between. I think we struck a pretty good compromise. I’m cautiously optimistic on this. I just think there’s too many people, too many members that have invested too much time and efort. One of the biggest questions surrounding the country’s energy policy is the EPA’s proposal to cut carbon dioxide emissions linked to climate change. You’ve criticized those because of the damage they would cause to the coal industry and the likelihood of higher electricity costs in the short term. But what, if anything, should the U.S. be doing to rein in carbon emissions? How do you do it without decommissioning power plants? How do you keep the lights on if you don’t have baseload? The short term answer is fracking and natural gas. I’m definitely against (the EPA’s Clean Power Plan), but it’s one of those things you can’t really stop. I’m a cost-benefit analysis type guy. What’s the cost and what’s the return? Even if you look at (EPA) Administrator (Gina) McCarthy’s statements, we can do this and it’s not really going to affect climate change. So why are we doing it ... if you can’t show us where this action in reducing carbon emissions from the United States will afect climate change? If anything, it’s negligible. And it’s got a big price-tag and higher costs. So could we focus on savings and do remediation? If there are changes, there’s been talk of a U.N. climate fund to help remediate and address climate change. That could be a possible way to go that would be probably a better, more eicient use of government dollars and taxpayer dollars than stopping something that I don’t think man can stop.

Skepticism grows as Monsanto plots merger with Syngenta By pamela BarBaglia and lUdwig BUrger reuters

Creve Coeur-based Monsanto Co. and its advisers are working flat out to accommodate Syngenta’s qualms about regulatory hurdles to a deal whose perils may well outweigh the rewards. Chances that antitrust regulators will block the deal remain high because the combined entity would control more of 40 percent of the U.S. seeds market. “The deal may not happen,” said a source close to Syngenta, speaking on the condition of anonymity. He mentioned growing skepticism among Syngenta’s board that antitrust hurdles could be overcome. Driven by regulatory concerns, Monsanto has said it would sell Syngenta’s entire seeds business and certain crop chemical assets to avoid antitrust problems. Sources said Monsanto has recently made changes to its team of external legal advisers in an efort to win Syngenta’s support, which it needs to follow the deal through. Antitrust advisers of both companies

have met twice in New York, the most recent a week ago, a person familiar with the matter said, but it remains unclear whether there has been any agreement. Selling Syngenta’s seeds business, which accounts for about 30 percent of the group’s sales and which commands an 8 percent global market share, means unraveling Syngenta’s “integrated” strategy of managing the seeds and pesticides product lines as one, in place since 2011. The Swiss firm, the world’s largest agrochemical maker by market share, also expects regulators to consider the combined group’s dominance of the broader agricultural inputs market and not look just at seeds and chemicals markets separately, said people with knowledge of the industry. Even excluding Syngenta’s seeds business, the combined group would still command roughly 30 percent of the global seeds and pesticides market. That figure would be much higher in North and South American markets, where Monsanto generates about 80 percent of the group’s revenue.

by October. The company expects to have five employees to start with, and hopes to add another five in the next year or so. Forrest is the third such Israeli company to make a move to this region since last summer. It’s part of an ongoing initiative by BioSTL to attract promising companies from a country known for its young technology firms. For companies like Forrest, the region ofers a strong network resulting from the presence of other biotech companies, including Monsanto. “They bring with them lots and lots of expertise and talent. And high potential for collaboration and innovation,” said Nitzan Paldi, Forrest’s chief executive. “Obviously, it’s the place to be.”

BioSTL, a nonprofit focused on boosting the region’s biotechnology sector, recently took part in another recruiting visit to Israel. Other members of the delegation included the Donald Danforth center, KWS, Monsanto, Missouri Partnership and the St. Louis Regional Chamber. The goal of the St. Louis-Israel Innovation Connection is to draw companies that already have proven adept at attracting venture capital funding and are looking to expand. In terms of incentives, the company will be eligible for up to $74,301 through the Missouri Works program if it meets certain job goals.

A-B’s trademark bid thwarted by Kansas City craft brewery

Suit accuses CVS of racial proiling its shoppers aSSociatEd PrESS

‘Brewed the hard way’ was used in super Bowl ad; microbrewery had claimed it use

NEW YORK • Four former CVS theft investigators

By liSa Brown St. Louis Post-Dispatch

say their supervisors ordered them to target minority shoppers in some New York City stores, according to a federal lawsuit filed against the nation’s secondlargest drugstore chain. The former employees said that supervisors routinely told them to racially profile black and Hispanic shoppers even when there was no indication that those people might steal. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, states that the supervisors never gave similar instructions regarding white shoppers. The complaint, which seeks class status, claims CVS intentionally targets and racially profiles shoppers based on the “ill-founded institutional belief ... minority customers are criminals and thieves.” CVS spokeswoman Carolyn Castel said in an email that the company doesn’t tolerate discrimination and is shocked by the allegations. “CVS Health has firm nondiscrimination policies that it rigorously enforces,” she wrote. “We serve all communities and we do not tolerate any policy or practice that discriminates against any group.” The plaintifs said that they were subjected to increased scrutiny within weeks of complaining about the procedures and that they were eventually fired. The plaintifs are all either black or Hispanic. CVS Health Corp., based in Woonsocket, R.I., runs 7,800 drugstores, a total that trails only Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.

Anheuser-Busch has hit a roadblock in its efort to trademark the phrase “Brewed the Hard Way” used in a Budweiser Super Bowl ad that pokes fun at craft beer drinkers, drawing backlash from some brewers and beer fans. A-B, which has its U.S. headquarters in St. Louis, filed to trademark the phrase on Feb. 6, a few days after the ad aired on the Super Bowl on Feb. 1. The ad highlights Budweiser’s brewing process, saying it’s “proud to be a macro beer” and it’s “not brewed to be fussed over.” “Let them sip their pumpkin peach ale,” the ad states. “We’ll be brewing us some golden suds.” The ad was criticized on social media by those who pointed out that A-B has recently acquired several craft breweries. A Missouri craft brewery, however, may stand in A-B’s trademark application. Martin City Brewing Co., a Kansas City-based brewery founded in 2011, filed a trademark application

store detectives say they were ired after questioning practice

for the phrase “Hard Way IPA” a day before A-B’s application, on Feb. 5. The craft brewery’s owners aren’t saying whether its new Hard Way IPA was inspired by Budweiser’s ad. Reached by phone Thursday, Matt Moore, one of Martin City’s owners, declined to comment. In an emailed statement, he and co-owner Chancie Adams said Martin City believes in “the true passion that goes into every craft brewer’s products.” “While we have no particular issues with brewing at a macro scale, we do take issue with anyone or any corporation that tries to segment a part of the population which embodies the very nature of loving beer,” their statement continued. “It seems

counterintuitive to segregate potential customers and pass judgment on their tastes. (Martin City) believes that every person has the right to love the beer of their choice, whether it be a sour ale, creamy stout, or even a light lager.” Martin City’s application is for “actual use,” and its application says it began using the phrase it’s seeking to trademark in commerce in early February. A-B’s application is for “intent to use.” The trademark office suspended A-B’s application May 13 while Martin City’s application proceeds, stating Martin City’s application “may present a bar to registration” of A-B’s trademark. Kaider Law, based in Damascus, Md., highlighted the trademark squabble on its blog this week. In an emailed statement, A-B said Budweiser has been “brewed the hard way since 1876.” Responding to the trademark, A-B said: “We filed a trademark application for the phrase shortly after the ad aired, and after researching and finding no other use of it or pending applications ... we are evaluating the process and next steps.” Lisa Brown • 314-340-8127 @lisabrownstl on Twitter lbrown@post-dispatch.com

The Cardinals are on fire and their chairman believes the heat. “I am believing what I’m seeing.

Team releases receiver due to heart condition BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

At least as far as the Rams are concerned, wide receiver Bud Sasser’s NFL career is over before it started because of a heart condition. Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed after Thursday’s OTA practice what has been rumored for several weeks, namely that Sasser could not pass his physical because of the heart condition — known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or HCM. In layman’s terms it’s a thickening of the heart muscle that can make it more diicult to pump blood. “We did some extensive studies after the draft,” Fisher said. “And it was determined and concluded by numerous physicians that he had a pre-existing condition that we don’t feel will allow him to play.” The Rams placed Sasser on the nonfootball illness list, and then placed him on waived/non-football injury on Thursday. The Rams did pay the former University of Missouri star his signing bonus of $113,000. It’s possible he could be claimed by another team, but his time with the Rams is over.

Wacha, Cards handle Dodgers He improves record to 8-1 with victory

DeWitt is liking what he sees in this team

The Cardinals are on fire and their chairman believes the heat. “I am believing what I’m seeing. I feel good about this team,” Bill DeWitt Jr. ofered Thursday afternoon, hours before his club opened a seven-game western road trip. DeWitt watched his club produce a 7-2 home stand that pushed its record to 35-18, fairly remarkable within what he JOE STRAUSS sees as an environment St. Louis of extreme parity in the Post-Dispatch game. A team challenged by major injury to each facet of its game has endured, even thrived. “We thought in spring training and going into the season we had a really good club,” DeWitt noted. “We’ve taken some hits.

DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Horse racing’s long Triple Crown drought is on the line Saturday in the Belmont Stakes, and the weather forecast calls for only a 20 percent chance of rain — and that’s in St. Louis. Why, you ask, would anyone care what the prediction is for a town nearly 1,000 miles from New York, where the race will be run at Belmont Park? The answer is clear: Threatening skies here could profoundly afect your ability to watch NBC’s coverage from the track. Last year, with California Chrome bidding to become the first colt to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont since Airmed did so in 1978, volatile conditions quickly developed over the St. Louis area that afternoon and the weather eventually turned wicked. KSDK (Channel 5) the local NBC ailiate, broke into much of the prerace coverage in order to air weather updates. That angered many viewers, but given the fact that these were more than severe thunderstorms — some tornado warnings were issued — KSDK had to play a balancing act. It went to a split screen at times with the audio devoted to weather, not the Belmont. It did show the race uninterrupted, but after California Chrome lost, the station quickly switched back to storm central. This space long has been critical of overblown weather hype — especially snow, when a prediction of a few inches leads to deployment of a small army of personnel to remind viewers to stock up on bread and milk. This is St. Louis, not Miami, and people are used to a 4-inch snowfall. The same way with a lot of “severe” storms. We’re used to driving in downpours and know to take cover if lightning is flashing. But tornadoes are different, so it’s hard to objectively argue KSDK’s approach with last year’s Belmont — and that’s the way station officials plan to handle things if such volatile weather unexpectedly breaks out this Saturday. KSDK lead meteorologist Cindy Preszler assured viewers of the station’s 6 p.m. newscast Thursday that “we are completely out of risk for severe weather” then. But if things change ... “Last year was pretty unique because we had six tornadoes touching down in the area,” Channel 5 general manager Marv Danielski said this week. “Our policy is that we have to warn people. The point

we always make, too, is that no one missed any of the race last year. We would do the same thing if we had to, which is make sure that everybody understood that they’re going to see the full race ... but if there is severe weather that’s going to touch down — such as tornadoes or severe thunderstorms that are raising havoc — we’ll let people see the race but then we’d have to go back into our (storm) coverage.” That’s understandable. But it’s aggravating to viewers the way KSDK has handled golf telecasts when weather problems arose. Two weeks ago, on a Sunday, the station showed the conclusion of the Senior PGA Championship and a flash flood warning was issued for some areas. KMOV (Channel 4) was showing a diferent golf tourney at the same time, and the stations’ approaches were vastly diferent. Channel 5 ran a scroll across the bottom of the screen giving weather info, and also displayed a map in the lower right corner that in essence repeated the text’s information. Worse, the map obscured part of the leaderboard and also on occasion covered holes while the ball was rolling toward them! Meanwhile, Channel 4 merely ran a scroll across the bottom of the screen giving weather information, eschewing a map and leaving viewers with a clear view of the holes and leaderboard. Hopefully, KSDK can rectify this problem quickly. Heaven forbid if that map blocks the net during a game in the ongoing Stanley Cup finals and viewers miss a key goal. KTVI (Channel 2) has come up with the best solution to the weather/sports overlap, but it’s one the others can’t use. That station and KPLR (Channel 11) are jointly operated, with KTVI having the vast majority of the sports programming among the two because it is a Fox affiliate. On that same Sunday that the aforementioned golf and weather coverage collided elsewhere, Channel 2 was showing a NASCAR race and its management decided to unveil an experiment. It placed the weather coverage on Channel 11, with a note on the screen directing race viewers there if they wanted storm updates. The race rolled on, relatively unobstructed, on Channel 2. “We found out it served the viewers very, very well,’’ said Spencer Koch, president and general manager of both stations. He was so happy with the results that he said that will be the policy when severe weather and sports collide. That’s good news to those who will want to watch the U.S. Open golf tourney in two weeks — Fox has the rights for the first time. “If there’s one thing I can’t stand

Former boxer hopes event can motivate kids BY DAN O’NEILL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Arthur “Flash” Johnson is used to winning fights. The East St. Louis product was a seventime Golden Gloves champion and captured 12 national titles. He fought in the Olympics in 1988 and was the first American to win gold at the 1986 Goodwill Games in Moscow. He went 22-6 as a professional and captured four world titles. Not long after he retired, Johnson was diagnosed with cancer and given three months to live. Seven years later, he’s still swinging. Now at age 49, he’s trying to fight another opponent – violence in the city streets. To that end, the Arthur Johnson Foundation Boxing Invitational will present a night of amateur boxing at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center in East Johnson St. Louis. The program includes bouts in various weight classes, featuring both novice and experienced fighters for a number of boxing clubs in the area. Johnson said he hopes to establish the night as an annual afair that draws top amateur boxers from around the country. He is hoping to use the sport as a motivating vehicle to get kids of the streets. “The guns and the killing that is taking place on our streets is unbelievable,” Johnson said. “Kids just need to be inspired, they need an alternative, something positive to focus on instead of the streets. “That’s what boxing can do. That’s what I’m trying to do with my foundation. I want to make an impact. This is the kind of event people can support, have fun with and at the same time help us accomplish that.” Admission to the event is $10 and concessions will be available throughout the evening. Doors open at 6 p.m. For more information, go to www.arthurjohnsonfoundation.org. Dan O’Neill @wwdod on Twitter doneill@post-dispatch.com

— and you can’t stand — it’s when there’s thunder and lightning coming and you want to see who’s winning and that (weather graphic) goes right over the leaderbord,” Koch said. “We’re making sure we’re not going to have that happen. ... We’d move the (weather) coverage” to Channel 11. And speaking of weather — the forecast for New York on Saturday calls for partly cloudy skies, only a 10 percent chance of rain at post time, which is a little after 5:30 p.m. (St. Louis time).

FELTS FALLOUT Sportscaster Katie Felts has left Channel 5 after 11 years, and Danielski wouldn’t comment on her exit — or even if she’ll be replaced — saying it is policy not to discuss personnel matters. But he did say that sports is a key component of KSDK’s news department. “Sports is always important to the station,” he said. “Coverage of local sports in particular. Whether it’s professional, college or high school, we cover the sports as well as we possibly can. This is a big market with a lot of sports teams.” To that end, it is necessary to hire a replacement. A two-person roster of on-air sports regulars (Rene Knott, Frank Cusumano) wouldn’t cut it if the station wants to be competitive in a city in which sports is a major factor.

‘BUBBA’ BUZZ When KFNS (590 AM) moved from its longtime sports format into “man”talk two years ago,one of the cornerstones of the move was the addition of the syndicated and racy “Bubba the Love Sponge” program. It bombed in St. Louis, and so did the format — the station now is of the air. But “Bubba” (Todd Alan Clem) just got picked up in Denver, where marijuana is legal and the station he’s on goes by the moniker “Smokin’ 94.1.” All Access, which reports on the music and radio businesses, quoted station owner Marc Paskin: “There is no radio station anywhere in the country like ‘Smokin 94.1.’ There is not a better fit for our mornings than ‘Bubba the Love Sponge.’ He loves weed, fast cars, hot girls, and rock music. I think Bubba will take Denver by storm!” “Bubba” also is quoted: “Rock music and smoking pot have historically gone together like peanut butter and jelly. The ‘Bubba the Love Sponge’ show has been an advocate for the legalization of marijuana long before it was the cool thing to do. ... I can’t wait to fire it up in Denver.” Dan Caesar • 314-340-8175 dcaesar@post-dispatch.com

Ahearn will coach at Clayton Ex-De Smet star set to settle down BY CHRIS GOVE STLhighschoolsports.com

Blake Ahearn has spent much of the last decade chasing professional basketball success. Now he’s coming home to start the next phase of his career. Ahearn has been hired as Clayton High School’s boys basketball coach, taking over a program that went 11-15 last season and lost in the first round of its district tournament. “I’ve got a reAhearn ally good group of guys,” Ahearn said. “I’ve had the chance to work with them a little bit and got to know them. The good things about the guys that have been here, they have a great attitude and they want to work hard.” A 2003 De Smet graduate, Ahearn is a legendary figure for his free-throw shooting during a four-season career at Missouri State that ended in 2007. He is the NCAA’s all-time leader in free-throw percentage at 94.6 percent in his time with the Bears, making 435 of 460 attempts. The 2008 NBA D-League rookie of the year, Ahearn wrapped up his professional career in April by playing nine games for the eventual DLeague champion Santa Cruz Warriors. Ahearn played NBA games for San Antonio, Miami and Utah and also was in camp with a handful of other NBA teams but did not play regular-season games. He played 195 games total for five teams in the D-League, which is the NBA’s developmental feeder league, along with professional squads in five countries internationally. “The traveling was awesome, and I got to see and play against some of the best in the world,” Ahearn said. “I’ve been all over the world, and there’s no way I would’ve done that except for basketball, and I’m definitely grateful.” Ahearn is the father of two young children. His wife is expecting a third. Family considerations played a large part in his decision to return to St. Louis on a full-time basis and become a coach. “From college to eight years of playing professionally, I’ve been living out of a suitcase for 12 years,” Ahearn said. “The lifestyle isn’t family friendly when you’ve got that much to lug around all over the place. The past couple of years with all the traveling, it was hard leaving my family. I was raised that family is the most important thing, and that’s what I based all of my decision on pretty much.” At De Smet, Ahearn was a Post-Dispatch All-Metro player as a junior and senior. His junior season, the Spartans finished second at the state tournament. Clayton has finished under .500 and lost in its openinground district games the past two seasons. In 2013, the Greyhounds lost 63-58 in a district final to Normandy, which reached the Class 4 state final. Ahearn said his father and uncle, Dan and John, both played at Clayton, and he had eight cousins attend the school, so the choice to lead the Greyhounds hit home. “Any time you’ve got a little history with something, I think it makes it that much more special,” Ahearn said. “It will be neat to look up and see my dad’s name and my uncle’s name up on the banners here.” A h ea r n i s c o n d u c t ing camps he had set to go through Nike before becoming Clayton’s coach, and he also said he has team camps scheduled on the Clayton campus in July. He has liked what he’s heard from Greyhounds players in limited interaction so far. “In the interview process, the common thing with all the players was they all wanted to win,” Ahearn said. “As a coach, you want guys who want to win and work hard.”

Bears take winning ways on road Scheduling conlict with park sends Missouri State to Arkansas BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

By securing the No. 8 seed in the country for the NCAA baseball championships, Missouri State appeared to create an opportunity to reach the College World Series without leaving Hammons Field in Springfield. However, the Bears share the facility with the Springfield Cardinals, who happen to have a home series this weekend. So, instead of hosting Arkansas in one of eight Super Regionals, Missouri State must travel to Fayetteville to face the Razorbacks in their best-of-three series starting Friday. To make matters worse, Arkansas has sold out 10,737-seat Baum Stadium for all three games. “We’ve been a good road team,” Bears coach Keith Guttin said. “We’ve got a veteran team and nothing much seems to affect them. They’ve been pretty even keel and have done a good job. And, they don’t have a choice.” Missouri State enters the series with a 19-game win streak, the longest in the country. The Bears are 39-4 since March 15. And maybe most impressive is their 20-4 record on the road, including a 2-0 win over Arkansas on March 31. The Razorbacks won the previous 10 meetings between the programs. In that game, three pitchers — Andy Cheray, Zach Merciez and Bryan Young — combined to limit the Razorbacks to six hits. Not one of them is among the team’s top three starters, who helped them blow through last weekend’s regional by allowing six runs and 16 hits in the three wins. Guttin will choose between Jon Harris (Hazelwood Central) and Matt Hall for Game 1, in which the Bears will be the home team. The other will follow and Jordan Knutson would pitch in Game 3 if necessary. “We’ve got two guys we consider No. 1s,” Guttin said. “Part of it is who is the most rested.

Missouri State’s Jake Burger (left) and Justin Paulsen celebrate Saturday after defeating Iowa in the NCAA Division I regional baseball game in Springfield, Mo.

FAYETTEVILLE (ARK.) SUPER REGIONAL Missouri State (48-10) at Arkansas (38-22) Game 1 • 3:35 p.m. Friday Game 2 • 1:05 p.m. Saturday Game 3 • 2:05 p.m. Sunday (if necessary) TV • ESPN2/ESPNU

That gives us a good feeling going in. And Knutson threw the best game of his career in the regional championship.” Pitching is the common thread among the country’s remaining 16 teams as 10 of the top 20 stafs based on ERA remain in the field. For Missouri State, the starters represent the strongest element of a team that has proved exceptional in all phases. The Bears are seventh in the country in ERA at 2.70, 10th with a .397 on-base percentage and 25th in fielding at .976. “Our defense and pitch-

ing have kept us in every game all season,” Guttin said. “Then we’ve had some timely hitting. We don’t have great power but we have a lot of guys that grind out at-bats and compete.” The team’s individual standouts are reflective of an allaround balance. Hall was named a first-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball. Harris was the Missouri Valley Conference pitcher of the year and a secondteam All-American by Collegiate Baseball. Shortstop Joey Hawkins was the MVC defensive player of the year and third baseman Jake Burger was the freshman of the year and a Collegiate Baseball third-team All-American. Closer Bryan Young was also a thirdteamer. With some of the star power on the mound and at various positions, Guttin doesn’t think the defense has received recognition it deserves.

“The thing that goes most unnoticed is the defense,” he said. “The day-to-day constant has been defense. All four infielders are solid. We had our shortstop, second baseman, center fielder and catcher all back. The nucleus was there.” The offense, meanwhile, has produced 6.4 runs per game, but not with raw power or a gaudy batting average. The Bears know how to reach base as their 303 walks — fifth in the country — would indicate. Put it all together and the Bears have been hard to beat all season, impossible to beat since April 25. “We never talk about it, never,” Guttin said of the streak. “We just go play the next game with a mature group.” Stu Durando @studurando on Twitter sdurando@post-dispatch.com

depth has played well. I think we’ve have more depth with this club — at least until the injuries — than we’ve had in years. We made a conscious decision to add that depth.” Less than optimal conditions didn’t prevent the Cardinals from taking the game’s best record into their four-game road series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The losses of staf pillar Adam Wainwright, set-up man Jordan Walden and first baseman Matt Adams each engendered their own panic attacks, but the Cardinals retain the game’s best starters’ earned run average and have continued to bridge leads to closer Trevor Rosenthal. A still-evolving offense has done enough despite averaging 3.19 runs in a 21-game run-up to Thursday. Ranking third leaguewide in on-base percentage but just eighth in runs extends last summer’s maddening tendency stemming from less power and an anticipated regression with runners in scoring position. Still, the Cardinals remain an envy. DeWitt didn’t study at the Mark Cuban school of trash talk. In his 20th season as Cardinals owner, he typically abstains from bold predictions, preferring to measure his team for the postseason then strap in for October’s wild swings. Yet DeWitt makes little attempt at veiling his confidence in this bunch. “We thought we had really good starting pitching and a really good bullpen, and that’s played out for us,” DeWitt said. “The pitching’s been terrific. We felt we upgraded the offense in the offseason. The young guys got older and our offense has been better than last year. Our defense has been good. We’re a fairly solid club.” The Cardinals averaged a menial 3.82 runs per game last season, lowest by a division champ in either loop since realignment in 1994. They opened Thursday in Chavez Ravine averaging 4.09 runs, an upgrade that is barely below the NL average of 4.11 runs per game. This can be construed either of two ways: The Cardinals are either poised for a dip as their pitching normalizes, or this team could flex further once its production reflects an elevated OPS. Entering Thursday night, the

A strong relationship has developed between manager Mike Matheny (above), general manager John Mozeliak and owner Bill DeWitt Jr.

two-time defending NL Central champs stood 54-27 in their last 81 games — a half season extending to last August. DeWitt’s Cardinals operate from a position of extreme financial leverage. They can easily add payroll, certainly more easily than they can subtract prospects. March’s darlings, the Chicago Cubs, have offered mild resistance only to find themselves seven games out of first place and looking at a minus run differential. (Despite their stopand-start ofense, the Cardinals led both leagues at plus-63.) “We have won a fair number of close games,” DeWitt acknowledged. “But when you look at the overall spread, it’s pretty big. The wins are justified from that perspective.” DeWitt is a devotee of advanced metrics. However, he also senses the vibe of a clubhouse that has evidenced resilience, which he partly credits to fourthyear manager Mike Matheny. “We’ve got a tough club. They come from behind more than they have in some past years. It’s a resilient team,” DeWitt observed. “I think Mike’s done a really good job mixing and matching. We’ve got five outfielders for three spots. He’s playing hot hand, and we’ve gotten a lot of production out of it.” Terming Adams’ loss “unfor-

tunate,” DeWitt underscored the greater emphasis placed last winter on fortifying what many perceived as a defense-first bench. While the Cardinals lag at first base — their .667 on-baseplus-slugging percentage at the position ranks No. 14 in the NL — they have endured with veteran Mark Reynolds. If there is a potential red flag, it is additional injuries, though DeWitt maintains confidence in some younger arms (Tim Cooney, Tyler Lyons, Marco Gonzales) who have struggled at this level or remain unavailable due to injury. “If we have a number of injuries to key players that would be a hit,” he said. “You play with what you have. I believe we’re pretty balanced throughout the club. There are some young players in the minors who could do a good job. Our pitching depth is maybe a little better than one might realize. Gonzales is going to be fine. Cooney had a tough start up here (April 30) but has pitched well since he’s gone back down. Lyons has been consistent since he went down. There have also been young relievers who have contributed.” DeWitt understands how a season can twist and turn. His first World Series championship as owner followed a September near-collapse in 2006. His sec-

ond required an epic charge that secured a wild card on the 2011 season’s final day. Teams that won 105 and 100 games in 2004 and 2005 failed to win a World Series game. Only last season the Milwaukee Brewers looked like league powers and near-certain division champions, then combusted. “I don’t think I would ever say a team was dominant in any league or any division,” cautioned DeWitt, more comfortable citing a bad record than a bad team as he listed the threat posed by the Cardinals’ four division rivals. Those rivals were collectively 17 games below .500 entering Thursday play. “I think we have a very good team that has an excellent chance to get into playofs and do well,” he said. “There are good clubs throughout baseball. I’m convinced there’s more parity than ever in the game. I don’t see overly bad teams. There are some with bad records likely to improve as time goes on.” DeWitt and eighth-year general manager John Mozeliak maintain one of the game’s tightest owner-executive relationships. The circle of trust for Matheny has also long since expanded. “I think Mike has done a terrific job. I know how it was written early that our bullpen was being worked hard to get wins. I thought he made a great comment: a win early is as good as a win late,” cited DeWitt. “The season can be cyclical. Lately our starters have consistently gone seven innings and the pen actually needs work. We’re not too far from the halfway point. The pitchers are settled in and going deeper.” DeWitt’s belief in what he has so far witnessed has not altered long-term perspective, something this organization clings to as its core principal. The mix of one-, three- and five-year blueprints involves constant evaluation of who is here, who could be passing through, and who is on the way. “It’s always fluid,” DeWitt said. “You have young players in the minor leagues but they still have to prove it (at the major league level). We don’t ever want to be all-in one year like it’s our last season to be competitive. And we’re not in that position.” Joe Strauss @joestrauss on Twitter jstrauss@post-dispatch.com

Anthony DeSclafani threw seven efective innings, Brandon Phillips had three hits and two RBIs and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 Thursday night to avoid a three-game sweep. DeSclafani (4-4) allowed four runs and six hits. He left with two runners on in the eighth and both scored. Aroldis Chapman, whose streak of 29 straight saves ended Wednesday night, tossed a perfect ninth for his 10th save. Aaron Harang (4-6) had his worst start with the Phillies, allowing a season-high six runs — ive earned — and six hits with ive walks in 5 2/3 innings. Harang pitched at least six innings in each of his irst 11 starts and gave up more than three earned runs once. His ERA rose from 2.02 to 2.45.

ameriCan league Twins 8, Red Sox 4 • Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval mishandled a throw on a bunt in the ninth inning, and visiting Minnesota broke away for a four-game split. Torii Hunter hit his 200th homer in a Twins uniform and added two singles. Kurt Suzuki singled three times, helping Minnesota to its ninth win in 12 games. Blake Swihart hit his irst major league homer and Dustin Pedroia also had a solo homer for Boston, which has lost eight of 11. The Twins trailed 4-0 going into the ifth. It was 4-all in the ninth when Minnesota put runners on irst and second with no outs against Koji Uehara (2-3). Joe Mauer bunted and catcher Swihart threw to third — low, but catchable— and the ball went under Sandoval’s glove, allowing Brian Dozier to score the go-ahead run. Orioles 3, Astros 2 • Adam Jones had three hits, including a solo homer in the eighth inning that lifted Baltimore to the road victory. With the score 2-2 in the eighth inning and two outs, Jones drove a pitch from Chad Qualls (1-3) into the Crawford Boxes in left ield. Wei-Yin Chen yielded two runs and ive hits in 6 1/3 innings with a season-high nine strikeouts. Darren O’Day (2-0) struck out two in one inning and lowered his ERA to 0.89, and Zach Britton got four outs for his 14th save in 15 chances, stopping Baltimore’s ive-game losing streak. Hank Conger had a home run and a double for the Astros, who at an AL-best 34-21 are of to the best start in franchise history. A’s 7, Tigers 5 • Jesse Hahn allowed one run in seven innings, and Oakland completed a three-game sweep in Detroit, handing the Tigers their seventh straight loss. Josh Phegley hit a two-run triple in the second inning, and the A’s won for the sixth time in seven games, although they still have the worst record in the American League. Hahn (3-5) allowed ive hits. Detroit scored four runs in the ninth, including a threerun homer by Tyler Collins. Tyler Clippard got the inal two outs for his ninth save. Associated Press

Astros to take out Tal’s Hill in center ield The Astros have announced plans for a proposed renovation of center ield at Minute Maid Park that would remove Tal’s Hill and shorten the distance in center ield from 436 feet to 409 feet. Houston’s center ield is currently the deepest in the majors, and the $15 million renovation would make it the sixth-deepest in the league. Tal’s Hill, a tribute to Cincinnati’s Crosley Field and other old ballparks with its incline, is named after former longtime team executive Tal Smith. Removing it and bringing in the fences in center ield allows the Astros to add three new bars, four food locations and the irst ieldlevel seating area at Minute Maid Park. The renovations will begin at the end of this season. General manager Jef Luhnow says: “The new center ield will not only be great for fans, but will make Minute Maid Park an attractive ballpark for current and future players as well.” Injured Royals make progress • Injured Royals pitchers Kris Medlen and Danny Dufy threw three innings apiece in a simulated game on Thursday, and both said everything went according to plan. Medlen has yet to pitch for Kansas City after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery last year. The Royals signed him knowing that he would be available for the second half this season if all went well, and so far the righthander is right on schedule. Hamilton goes on DL • Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton was put on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, only seven games into his return to the majors. The Rangers made the move after saying the previous night Hamilton will be sidelined about four weeks because of a strained left hamstring. Lefthander Ross Detwiler was activated. Nationals activate Rendon • The struggling Washington Nationals welcomed back an important part of their ofense with the activation of inielder Anthony Rendon from the disabled list. The 24-year-old missed the irst 53 games while recovering from a left knee sprain and then a left oblique strain. McCann listed day-to-day • Scans of Brian McCann’s troublesome right foot were negative, and the New York Yankees say their catcher is day to day. McCann irst reported pain in the foot on May 24, when the foot and calf tightened on him during a game against Texas. Associated Press

The Padres lost 4-2. 1989: The Blue Jays lost their debut in the SkyDome as Glenn Braggs hit a two-run homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past Toronto 5-3. The $375 million complex featured a $100 million, four-section, retractable roof. 1997: Alex Rodriguez of the Mariners became the first Seattle player to hit for the cycle in a nine-inning game. He completed the cycle with a double in the ninth of a 14-6 win at Detroit. 2001: Colorado pitcher Mike Hampton had two homers, three RBIs and recorded his eighth win as Colorado defeated Houston 9-4. 2006: Cincinnati’s Ken Griffey, Jr., homered twice at the new Busch Stadium in St. Louis, to tie Fred McGriff’s major league record of connecting in 43 different stadiums. Griffey second homer was a three-run game winner in the ninth off Jason Isringhausen for an 8-7 win over the Cardinals. 2008: Atlanta’s Chipper Jones became the third switch-hitter in major league history to hit 400 career home runs. Jones’ homer off Ricky Nolasco was one of his four hits in the 7-5 comeback win over Florida. Mickey Mantle and Eddie Murray were the first two reach the milestone. 2008: Mark Worrell became the eighth player in St. Louis Cardinals history to hit a home run in his first big league at-bat. Worrell, who also pitched two scoreless innings, hit a three-run shot on a 3-2 pitch from Washington 2010: Florida International’s Garrett Wittels extended his hitting streak to 56 games but the Golden Panthers were eliminated by Dartmouth 15-9 in the Coral Gables regional. Wittels hit an RBI double in the top of the first inning off Dartmouth starter Robert Young. Wittels, ended the season two games from the Division I all-time hit streak record set by Oklahoma State’s Robin Ventura in 1987. 2010: Jamie Moyer pitched a seven-hitter to help the Philadelphia Phillies break out of their offensive slump with a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres. It was the 47-year-old left-hander’s second complete game this season, and 33rd for a career that began in 1986. He also joined Phil Niekro (121) and Jack Quinn (103) as the only pitchers to win 100 games after age 40. 2011: Albert Pujols hit a game-ending homer in extra innings for the second straight day, beating the Chicago Cubs with a leadoff shot in the 10th inning of the St. Louis Cardinals’ 3-2 victory. Pujols hammered a fastball from Rodrigo Lopez an estimated 446 feet to left for his 10th career game-ending homer. The previous day, Pujols hit his second homer of the game with two outs in the 12th inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Pujols homer came on a 2-1 pitch from Jeff Samardzija. 2013: The Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners played the first game in major league history when each team scored five or more runs in the game when it was scoreless through the ninth. Alejandro De Aza and Alex Rios each had an RBI single in the 16th inning, and Chicago posted a 7-5 victory. Chicago scored five times in the top of the 14th, only to have Seattle complete an improbable rally on Kyle Seager’s tying grand slam off Addison Reed with two out. Seager was the first player to hit a tying grand slam in extra innings and no team had ever scored five or more runs in the 14th inning or later to tie a game. 2013: Carlos Gonzalez hit three of Colorado’s six homers, and Troy Tulowitzki went 5 for 5 with a pair of homers, powering the Rockies to a 12-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Jake Arrieta pitched six strong innings, and the Chicago Cubs made a pair of irst-inning runs hold up as they defeated the host Washington Nationals 2-1 on Thursday night. Arrieta (5-4) rebounded from a pair of subpar outings, pitching six innings and giving up a run and six hits. Hector Rondon pitched the ninth for his 10th save. Washington’s Anthony Rendon, who missed 53 games due to injuries, had two hits in his season debut. He was up with runners on irst and second and two outs in the ninth when Cubs catcher David Ross picked of Clint Robinson at irst to end it.

Torii Hunter hit his 200th homer in a Twins uniform and added two singles. It was 4-all in the ninth when Minnesota put runners on irst and second with no outs against Koji Uehara (2-3). Joe Mauer bunted and catcher Blake Swihart threw to third — low, but catchable— and the ball went under Sandoval’s glove, allowing Brian Dozier to score the go-ahead run. Orioles 3, Astros 2 • Adam Jones had three hits, including a solo homer in the eighth inning that lifted Baltimore to the road victory. With the score 2-2 in the eighth inning and two outs, Jones drove a pitch from Chad Qualls (1-3) into the Crawford Boxes in left ield.

Astros to take out Tal’s Hill in center ield The Astros have announced plans for a proposed renovation of center ield at Minute Maid Park that would remove Tal’s Hill and shorten the distance in center ield from 436 feet to 409 feet. Houston’s center ield is currently the deepest in the majors, and the $15 million renovation would make it the sixth-deepest in the league. Tal’s Hill, a tribute to Cincinnati’s Crosley Field and other old ballparks with its incline, is named after former longtime team executive Tal Smith. Removing it and bringing in the fences in center ield allows the Astros to add three new bars, four food locations and the irst ieldlevel seating area at Minute Maid Park. The renovations will begin at the end of this season. General manager Jef Luhnow says: “The new center ield will not only be great for fans, but will make Minute Maid Park an attractive ballpark for current and future players as well.” Injured Royals make progress • Injured Royals pitchers Kris Medlen and Danny Dufy threw three innings apiece in a simulated game on Thursday, and both said everything went according to plan. Medlen has yet to pitch for Kansas City after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery last year. The Royals signed him knowing that he would be available for the second half this season if all went well, and so far the righthander is right on schedule. Hamilton goes on DL • Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton was put on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, only seven games into his return to the majors. The Rangers made the move after saying the previous night Hamilton will be sidelined about four weeks because of a strained left hamstring. Lefthander Ross Detwiler was activated. Nationals activate Rendon • The struggling Washington Nationals welcomed back an important part of their ofense with the activation of inielder Anthony Rendon from the disabled list. The 24-year-old missed the irst 53 games while recovering from a left knee sprain and then a left oblique strain. McCann listed day-to-day • Scans of Brian McCann’s troublesome right foot were negative, and the New York Yankees say their catcher is day to day. McCann irst reported pain in the foot on May 24, when the foot and calf tightened on him during a game against Texas. Associated Press

• Prior to Thursday’s game

AssociAted Press

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha throws a pitch during the second inning Thursday.

He has much lower ERA and a lot fewer walks By RiCk Hummel St. Louis Post-dispatch

LOS ANGELES • Trevor Rosenthal has 17 saves this year and he had 16 at this time last year. But that is about the only number that is roughly the same relative to the Cardinals’ closer’s performance. Rosenthal, who has allowed only a game-tying home run to Pittsburgh shortstop Jung Ho Kang on May 3 and a harmless run to Milwaukee in the ninth inning on April 15, has an earned run average of 0.69, compared to 4.13 at this time last year. Last year at this stage he had 16 walks, on his way to 42 in 70 1/3 innings, to just 10 now. But last year he also had 36 strikeouts to 26 through June 4. What these numbers suggest basically is that the 25-year-old Rosenthal has been more efficient in his second full season on the job. “I don’t know, really,” he said before Thursday night’s game with the Los Angeles Dodgers. “Such a short sample. “I just think my general thought process coming to spring training was to attack hitters and get ahead in counts. So it looks like I’m a little better at that job so far.” It’s not so much throwing strike one rather than ball one, said Rosenthal. “It’s throwing quality strike one and not just throwing it over the plate,” he said. Manager Mike Matheny touched on one aspect of his game that Rosenthal hadn’t referenced — the fact that Rosenthal has been pitching exclusively from the stretch. Matheny would like to see most all his relievers do that. “It’s simplified pitching,” Matheny said. “I’m waiting for somebody to convince me otherwise, especially for a reliever that’s coming in in big situations late in the game. “I think Trevor has been a good representation of that theory of ‘let’s get real good at doing one thing.’ And that one thing is being out of the stretch and making good pitches from the stretch.” Matheny said he wouldn’t mind if Rosenthal wanted to wind up, or, at least, do it in his side throwing sessions. “But I personally hope he’s seen that there really isn’t a huge benefit to doing that at this point of his career,” Matheny said. “Later on, maybe. But there’s something about a good rhythm you don’t want to mess with.” Rosenthal isn’t shy now about starting hitters out with a secondary pitch, such as his curveball, slider or changeup, rather than his 97 mph (or better) fastball. “I don’t really know what they’re thinking,” he said.

AssociAted Press

Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal has had better control this season pitching solely from the stretch.

mation, Rosenthal doesn’t even know the name of the theme song “300 Violin Orchestra” for his entry into the game. “That’s not really my deal,” he said. “I’m not in charge of it. “But they did a good job of it — from what I hear. I don’t really hear it.” Matheny reminded a questioner that Rosenthal “had a pretty good year (45 saves) last year, too. But, statistically it looks a little diferent. “A lot of that has to do with ‘advantage’ counts and working ahead. That’s what his goal sheet looked like in spring training. You start working deeper in the count and you’re ahead ... your odds are getting a whole lot better of getting those outs.” Matheny can appreciate that Rosenthal ended his last two outings by throwing game-ending double-play balls. But he said, “He still has the ability to strike somebody out. I don’t think that number is going to be radically different than he was a year ago. “He got himself into positions last year when he had to get a strikeout. It was just downright scary with guys all over the bases. “(This year), it’s just a diferent mentality of pitching but we sure like what we’ve seen so far.”

THe RiVAlRy WiTH DODGeRS “What I see the most is they swing and you can just kind of tell they weren’t looking for that (pitch).” As to his walks total being down, along with the strikeouts, Rosenthal said he really hadn’t been aware of the latter total. “I’m not a big look-at-thenumbers guy,” he said. But he agreed that he probably had learned more about how to do his job, which he has found he enjoys. This is not to say he still wouldn’t want to start. “I don’t care. Either way. It doesn’t make any diference to me,” said Rosenthal, who said he wouldn’t need to re-condition himself too much to be a starter. “I just kind of do what I’m told,” said Rosenthal, who seems better than many young players at eliminating distractions. “You really can’t control a guy (Kang) hitting a home run off a first-pitch curveball, which you think is a good pitch,” Rosenthal said. “It stinks giving up runs and blowing a save. I just think I can’t control when I’m going to give up runs. You’re going to give up runs when you probably shouldn’t have. And you’re not going to give up runs when you probably should have.” Rosenthal isn’t completely oblivious to the numbers. “It’s not like I don’t know what’s going on,” he said. “(The hitters) will let me know when I’m bad enough.” As an example of meaningless infor-

It is only June but the back-to-back weekend jousts between the Cardinals and Dodgers has sparked fervor in both cities. Matheny said, “However people want to build up the drama ... drama creates excitement, excitement puts butts in the seats ... that’s our job when it comes down to it (although) we’ve got to win games, too. “We know it’s going to be a good crowd here. We know they’re not necessarily fond of us. And we’re not trying to win over their fan base. We’re trying to keep ours. “But I also think they appreciate good baseball.”

eXTRA BASeS Matheny, commenting on how well John Lackey has pitched for the Cardinals despite making the major league minimum, as a stipulation of a contract signed with Boston, said, “Guys come to an agreement and it’s an agreement and then you just go play the game. He’s really representing himself in a way that there’s going to be plenty of reward at the end.” . . . Class AAA Memphis infielder Greg Garcia hit .361 with 11 multi-hit games and righthander Luis Perdomo of Class A Peoria had a 1.42 ERA to earn player of the month and pitcher of the month awards in the organization for May.

The Cardinals’ Matt Holliday scores on a single by Mark Reynolds as Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal takes a late throw.

Cardinals improve to 36-18 at one-third mark of the season Cardinals • from C1

the word — to how commanding Wacha can be with or without runners on base. Wacha, who didn’t walk anybody, stranded four runners in scoring position in a tidy seveninning outing as the Cardinals rolled to a 7-1 win in the opener of a four-game series matching two of the three first-place teams in the National League. The victory made Wacha the third eightgame winner in the National League and raised the Cardinals’ record to 36-18 at the one-third point of the season. They have won 18 more than they have lost for the first time all season. Jason Heyward and Kolten Wong both drove in two runs and Jhonny Peralta had three singles for the Cardinals, who never trailed as they beat the Dodgers

for the third time in four meetings over the last week. A two-out error by Los Angeles third baseman Turner on Matt Carpenter’s skimmer led to a two-run third. After Carpenter reached safely, Matt Holliday singled to center and so did Peralta, scoring Carpenter. It was Peralta’s teamhigh 32nd run batted in. Mark Reynolds, who had fanned with two on to end the first, blooped a single in front of right fielder Andre Ethier and Holliday slid home safely, touching the plate with his hand, beating Ethier’s throw and catcher Yasmani Grandal’s tag. Heyward’s two-out, two run single capped a three-run fifth. Holliday’s sacrifice fly made it 3-0 following a walk to Wong and Carpenter’s double. After Peralta was walked intentionally, Reynolds tapped to pitcher Car-

los Frias, with Carpenter holding third and Peralta going to second as Reynolds was thrown out. Heyward then lined a two-run single to right and induced the Dodgers to cut the ball off and make a play on him as Peralta came home with the second run on the play. Wacha held the Dodgers to two hits over the first four frames before he had to pitch around a second-and-third, two-out spot in the fifth by getting Joc Pederson on a called third strike. The Dodgers broke through for a run in the sixth on three singles and a sacrifice fly by Alex Guerrero. But Wacha limited the damage by retiring Jimmy Rollins on a groundout to end the inning. But pinch-hitter Randal Grichuk’s double which zipped over the head of left fielder Guerrero preceded Wong’s double to the left-center-field gap to pro-

duce two more runs in the eighth against rookie Daniel Coulombe, who was left in the game with a Dodgers’ bullpen beleagured by a three-day, four-game series in Colorado replete with rain delays. Lefthander Kevin Siegrist worked a scoreless eighth, striking out two, giving him 31 strikeouts in 23 innings. Carlos Villanueva handled the ninth inning. Wacha, receiving outfield help in the first from right fielder Heyward with a jumping catch in front of the wall to take a potential hit away, set down six of the first seven Dodgers to face him as Wacha made his Dodger Stadium debut. The Cardinals won a replay but lost the battle in their first. Wong opened the game with a single, marking the ninth time in his last 10 games that he had reached base in the first inning as

the Cardinals’ leadoff man. But he didn’t stay there very long. Frias picked off Wong with a quick move. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny motioned to the umpiring crew that his video staf wanted to see if a review was warranted, but seconds later, he motioned to Wong to come back to the dugout. Carpenter then walked but Holliday bounced into a double play. Or so it appeared. Matheny did appeal Dan Iassogna’s verdict at first and the call quickly was overturned. Peralta extended the inning by rolling a single past the dive of second baseman Kike Hernandez but Reynolds flailed at a pitch on the corner and struck out.

NHL • STANLEY CUP FINALS

Stamkos aims to be complete player Will to win seems unquenchable

STANLEY CUP FINALS CHICAGO 1, TAMPA BAY 0 Best-of-seven | x-if needed

ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAmPA, fLA. • Steven Stamkos grew up imagining what it would be like to hoist the Stanley Cup. Now that he and the Tampa Bay Lightning have a shot at it, the team captain says he will do whatever is necessary make it reality. The three-time All-Star center already is one of the most prolific goal scorers of his generation, but aspires to be much more. He is working to become a complete player who leads on both ends of the ice. Kind of like Jonathan Toews does for the Chicago Blackhawks, who are chasing their third NHL championship in six years. “You want to be like him because he’s a winner,” said Stamkos, who helped Tampa Bay reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in franchise history. “Johnny is an unbelievable captain. What he’s been able to do in this league is amazing. But this is bigger than the two of us,” the Lightning star said. “We realize what we’re up against. They’re one of the best teams in the league. To see what they’ve done the past five, six years is pretty impressive. ... He’s a guy a lot of players around the league try to emulate. The fact that he plays a great game, and he’s a great leader, speaks for himself.” Make no mistake, Stamkos can stand on his own accolades. Over the last six years, Alex

Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos looks for a pass during practice recently. Stamkos has scored 253 goals in the last six years.

Ovechkin is the only player who’s scored more regular-season goals, with 256 to Stamkos’ 253. The 25-year-old Stamkos also was selected to play for Canada in the Sochi Olympics, though he missed the team’s gold medal run in 2014 while recovering from a broken leg that also sidelined him for three months of the NHL season. But what Stamkos wants more than anything else is a championship, though not necessarily because he feels to need to win a Stanley Cup to validate himself as a great player. “You know what, I’ve dreamt about it for a long time,” he said. “Ever since I can remem-

ber comprehending what the NHL was, that’s what I wanted to do as a kid. You dream of holding that Stanley Cup over your head, whether it be pond hockey or road hockey, scoring that winning goal to win the Cup. To have the chance to live out that dream is pretty cool.” The Blackhawks lead the best-of-seven series after taking Game 1 on Wednesday night. Game 2 is Saturday. Stamkos has also been competitive — about everything. “Even running up the stairs with my sister as a kid, that was a race. ... I want to win at everything I do,” Stamkos said. “At the gym, who can lift the most weight. Who can run the fastest

play had been stopped on an oicials’ whistle. After the scrum was broken up, Hedman was seen on the Lightning bench lifting his jersey to show a spot on his side to a team trainer. Hedman said after the game that it felt like he was bit, but couldn’t say for sure that it did happen. Neither Shaw nor Hedman were made available for Thursday’s of-day interview session. The teams will practice Friday before Game 2 on Saturday. The NHL looked at video of the scrum, but hasn’t released any additional information. The Stanley Cup Finals have been bitten by controversy before: Boston’s Patrice Bergeron

accused Vancouver’s Alex Burrows of biting his finger during a scrum in Game 1 of the 2011 series. Burrows wasn’t suspended when the NHL couldn’t find conclusive evidence of a bite. A year earlier, Philadelphia’s Daniel Carcillo accused Boston’s Marc Savard of biting his finger. Carcillo now plays for the Blackhawks.

around the track. Softball, golf, everything I do, I want to win. I want this so bad. Everyone who knows me knows that. And I will do whatever it takes.” Teammates and opponents have taken notice of the evolution of Stamkos’ game. “He’s a talented player, one of the best goal-scorers of our time,” Chicago’s Brent Seabrook said. “Being able to watch him a little bit, not playing him too much (with him) being in the east, but watching in the playoffs, he’s rounded out his game,” Seabrook added. “He’s playing both ends of the rink real well. He still has that ofensive touch, being able to put the puck in the net, so you have to be aware of that. But he’s playing both ends of the rink and doing a lot of the little things out there that make teams successful.” While playing for the Stanley Cup may be the ultimate for Stamkos as a player, he also relishes that the opportunity comes against a star-studded team led by Toews and Patrick Kane, who Stamkos played against in junior hockey.

NHL NOTEBOOK No updates on possible biting incident in Game 1 The Chicago Blackhawks pleaded ignorance Thursday about the possibility that right wing Andrew Shaw bit Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. “I have no idea,” Blackhawks center Antoine Vermette said one day after Chicago won the series opener 2-1 over the Lightning. “I read about that. There was a little question about that. I didn’t see it. I don’t know about it.” Shaw and Hedman got tangled up late in the first period behind the Tampa Bay net after Hedman pushed Blackhawks star Patrick Kane into the boards just after

NBA NOTEBOOK Wisconsin Gov. announces deal for new Bucks arena Taxpayers would pick up half the cost of a new $500 million arena for the Milwaukee Bucks under a financial deal that would rely on current and former team owners for the rest, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday. Walker, a likely presidential candidate, has argued for months that it will cost the state more in lost income-tax revenue if the NBA moves the team from Milwaukee than it will to pay for a new downtown arena. The plan Walker spelled out includes $250 million already committed by the Bucks’ current and former owners. The other half will come from taxpayers, a contribution capped at $250 million, with the team bearing any responsibility for cost overruns Without a new stadium by 2017, the NBA has said it will buy back the team and move it. The Bucks currently play in the 27-year-old BMO Harris Bradley Center. Ohio, California senators make bets on finals • Ohio’s two U.S. senators are betting beers brewed in the state against their California counterparts’ wine, beer and cofee as the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals. U.S. Sen. Rob Portman has wagered a six-pack of beer from Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Co. against California U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bottles of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. Senators Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Barbara Boxer of California have their own sudsy bets. Brown is wagering beer from Hoppin’ Frog Brewery made in the hometown of Cavaliers superstar LeBron James against Boxer’s California-brewed beer and roasted cofee. The loser must pay of the bet while wearing a jersey from the other team. Associated Press

Coaches’ challenges • The NHL is a step closer to a coaches’ challenge system. The joint NHL/NHL Players’ Association competition committee said Thursday that it recommended coaches’ challenges for goals involving goalie interference and ofside

plays. If approved by the NHLPA executive committee and board of governors, goalie interference challenges would be handled by referees at ice level and ofside plays by the situation room in Toronto. The competition committee reached no consensus on overtime changes for next season. General managers voted in March to consider three-onthree overtime either for a full five minutes or the format used by the American Hockey League — three minutes of four-on-four and then four minutes of threeon-three.

Warriors pull away in OT for win NBA • from C1

(Warriors 44.3 percent, Cavaliers 41.5 percent), rebounding (Warriors 48, Cavaliers 45) or assists (Warriors 24, Cavaliers 19). In the end, it came down to the NBA’s top teams and biggest stars making plays — or not. James and Curry carried their clubs through the fourth quarter, trading scores and assists in a back-and-forth duel that had a sellout crowd of 19,596 — most wearing those blinding, golden yellow shirts. Both also had a chance to win the game in regulation. Curry, the current MVP, beat Irving of the dribble and moved in for the go-ahead layup. Instead, Irving blocked Curry from behind, J.R. Smith came up with the rebound and the Cavs called a timeout with 24.1 seconds left. James dribbled down the clock and missed a contested jumper over Andre Iguodala just inside the left arc, and Iman Shumpert’s desperation shot nearly rimmed in at the buzzer, sending a collective sigh through the crowd. The Cavs never came so close again. Curry drew two deep shooting fouls at the start of overtime and made all four free throws, and Harrison Barnes hit a corner 3 just in front of the Cavs bench to give Golden State a 105-98 lead with 2:02 to play and sent the crowd screaming at full throat. Irving limped to the bench trying to shake of his troublesome left leg after the play. He was replaced by Matthew Dellavedova. The Warriors went ahead 108-98 on free throws with 1:16 to play. James’ layup with 8.9 seconds left accounted

for Cleveland’s only points in overtime. James, who missed three shots and had two turnovers in overtime, walked off the court in frustration as time expired. Both teams got through their early jitters and both stars were in full force. James swished shots inside

and out, looking calm and cool on basketball’s biggest stage to guide the Cavaliers to a 29-15 lead late in the first quarter. But the Cavs scored just two points in 4 minutes without James to start the second quarter as the Warriors came rolling back behind Marreese Speights and their second unit. Curry returned and connected on his first 3-pointer with 4:21 remaining in the quarter, a quick-trigger release over James Jones in the left corner to even the score at 36-all. Curry stopped and stared at the crowd, giving a high-five to a fan in the front row, and followed with a series of scintillating shots. But Smith turned in the final highlight of the half. His third 3-pointer — from 29 feet — in the final seconds put Cleveland up 51-48. James carried Cleveland through a thrilling third quarter, but neither team could pull away. Iguodala’s emphatic dunk tied the score at 73-all heading to the fourth, and 48 minutes turned out not to be enough to settle this one. And so far, it looks like Commissioner Adam Silver was right about these NBA Finals. During his annual press conference before Game 1, Silver talked about the excitement over seeing James and Curry, two of the NBA’s biggest stars, along with two of the league’s top teams in Golden State and Cleveland. “If we get just a small percentage of what we’re all talking and writing about, it’s going to be one of the most exciting finals ever,” he said. “So I can’t wait.” As the teams entered the final 2 minutes, the game was tied at 96 in a game that had already had 13 lead changes.

Matsuyama tied for lead at Memorial Defending champ and Van Pelt shoot 64 ASSOCIATED PRESS

DUBLIN, oHIo • Hideki Matsuyama was bracing for a rough day at the Memorial and wound up with a share of the lead Thursday. Tiger Woods still doesn’t know what to expect. Matsuyama made a bold start in his bid to join Woods as the only repeat winners at Muirfield Village by running of four straight birdies on the back nine and one strong par save on his way to an 8-under 64 that tied the Japanese star with Bo Van Pelt. “To be honest with you, up until yesterday I was not hitting the ball very well, I was not chipping very well, I was not putting very well,” Matsuyama said through a translator. “And I don’t know what happened overnight. We just caught magic.” It was a dream start for Van Pelt for other reasons. He grew up across the state line in Indiana and used to play hooky from school to attend the Memorial from the time he was 10 until he got out of high school. Muirfield Village is where he first dreamed about playing the PGA Tour. In calm conditions under an overcast sky, Van Pelt made a career-best 10 birdies for his best score in 41 rounds at the course Jack Nicklaus built. “Other than the Masters, this tournament means more to me than any one I’ve ever played,” Van Pelt said. “So it’s always good to play well around a place that means a lot to you.” Woods, a five-time winner of the Memorial, wasn’t sure what he was going to get. He hooked his tee shot and started with a bogey for the eighth time in his last nine starts on the PGA Tour. He went so far right off the tee at the 18th that it went out-of-bounds (the next tee shot wasn’t much better) and made double bogey to go out in 40. He hooked his 3-wood on the first hole. It was looking like another big number. Instead, Woods battled to save pars and convert birdies, and he salvaged a 73 that left him nine shots behind. “Physically, I feel good. Mentally, I feel beat up,” Woods said. “To turn that round around like I did today ... that was hard.” Matsuyama won the Memorial last year in a playof. It was his first win in America and validated him as one of the many rising stars in golf. He said every course on the PGA Tour feels diicult to him, and even when he made a pair of 15-foot birdie putts on his way to a 32 on the front nine while playing with Phil Mickelson (72) and Rickie Fowler (72), he wasn’t comfortable. “I was just trying to hang on,” he said. So was Jason Dufner, the former PGA champion, whose tie for eighth last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson ended a stretch of 17 events on American soil without a top 10. He was tied for the lead after making a 60-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole and was still poised to join Matsuyama and Van Pelt at 64 until he pulled his tee shot into the water on the 18th and closed with a double bogey. That put him at 66, along with Russell Knox, who fed his putts of the ridges beautifully in making seven birdies. Harris English and Kevin Kisner were among those at 67. Masters champion Jordan Spieth had a 68.

GOLF ROUNDUP Woods tied for LPGA lead Cheyenne Woods, Cristie Kerr and P.K. Kongkraphan matched the course record at 9-under 63 on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Manulife LPGA Classic in Cambridge, Ontario. Woods, Tiger Woods’ niece, and the others tied the Whistle Bear Golf Club record set by Matt Bettencourt and Jon Mills, in the Web.com Tour’s 2005 Canadian PGA Championship. The tournament is in its first year at Whistle Bear after three years at Grey Silo in Waterloo, Ontario. Woods had an eagle, eight birdies and a bogey. The 24-year-old LPGA rookie won the Ladies European Tour’s Australian Ladies Masters last year. European Tour • Swedish amateur Marcus Kinhult was in a three-way tie for the lead after the opening day of the Nordea Masters at 5-under-par 67 on Thursday in Malmo, Sweden. Countryman Jens Dantorp and England’s Chris Paisley were with him, one stroke ahead of nine golfers at 4 under. World No. 4 Henrik Stenson came in at 2 under, while defending champion Thongchai Jaidee carded a 1-over 73. Associated Press

And I will do whatever it takes.” Teammates and opponents have taken notice of the evolution of Stamkos’ game. “He’s a talented player, one of the best goal-scorers of our time,” Chicago’s Brent Seabrook said. “Being able to watch him a little bit, not playing him too much (with him) being in the east, but watching in the playoffs, he’s rounded out his game,” Seabrook added. “He’s playing both ends of the rink real well. He still has that ofensive touch, being able to put the puck in the net, so you have to be aware of that. But he’s playing both ends of the rink and doing a lot of the little things out there that make teams successful.” While playing for the Stanley Cup may be the ultimate for Stamkos as a player, he also relishes that the opportunity comes against a star-studded team led by Toews and Patrick Kane, who Stamkos played against in junior hockey.

NHL NOTEBOOK No updates on possible biting incident in Game 1 The Chicago Blackhawks pleaded ignorance Thursday about the possibility that right wing Andrew Shaw bit Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. “I have no idea,” Blackhawks center Antoine Vermette said one day after Chicago won the series opener 2-1 over the Lightning. “I read about that. There was a little question about that. I didn’t see it. I don’t know about it.” Shaw and Hedman got tangled up late in the first period behind the Tampa Bay net after Hedman pushed Blackhawks star Patrick Kane into the boards just after

NBA NOTEBOOK Wisconsin Gov. announces deal for new Bucks arena Taxpayers would pick up half the cost of a new $500 million arena for the Milwaukee Bucks under a financial deal that would rely on current and former team owners for the rest, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday. Walker, a likely presidential candidate, has argued for months that it will cost the state more in lost income-tax revenue if the NBA moves the team from Milwaukee than it will to pay for a new downtown arena. The plan Walker spelled out includes $250 million already committed by the Bucks’ current and former owners. The other half will come from taxpayers, a contribution capped at $250 million, with the team bearing any responsibility for cost overruns Without a new stadium by 2017, the NBA has said it will buy back the team and move it. The Bucks currently play in the 27-year-old BMO Harris Bradley Center. Ohio, California senators make bets on finals • Ohio’s two U.S. senators are betting beers brewed in the state against their California counterparts’ wine, beer and cofee as the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals. U.S. Sen. Rob Portman has wagered a six-pack of beer from Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Co. against California U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bottles of chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. Senators Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Barbara Boxer of California have their own sudsy bets. Brown is wagering beer from Hoppin’ Frog Brewery made in the hometown of Cavaliers superstar LeBron James against Boxer’s California-brewed beer and roasted cofee. The loser must pay of the bet while wearing a jersey from the other team. Associated Press

Coaches’ challenges • The NHL is a step closer to a coaches’ challenge system. The joint NHL/NHL Players’ Association competition committee said Thursday that it recommended coaches’ challenges for goals involving goalie interference and ofside

plays. If approved by the NHLPA executive committee and board of governors, goalie interference challenges would be handled by referees at ice level and ofside plays by the situation room in Toronto. The competition committee reached no consensus on overtime changes for next season. General managers voted in March to consider three-onthree overtime either for a full five minutes or the format used by the American Hockey League — three minutes of four-on-four and then four minutes of threeon-three.

Irving hurt late, Cavs lose opener NBA • from C1

“We got to do more around him,” Cavs coach David Blatt said. Adding to the Cavs’ frustration, point guard Kyrie Irving limped to the locker room after aggravating his troublesome left knee in overtime. He did not return. With Kevin Love already out, the Cavs obviously need Irving. He missed two games in the Eastern Conference finals because of knee and foot injuries and sounded unsure of his status for Game 2 on Sunday in Oakland. “Obviously you can see in the tone of my voice I’m a little worried,” Irving said. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he hopes Irving is able to play the remainder of the series. “I mean that,” Kerr said. “You probably don’t believe me, but I mean that.” There were 13 lead changes and 11 ties in a game tightly contested across the board. There was little edge in shooting (Warriors 44.3 percent, Cavaliers 41.5 percent), rebounding (Warriors 48, Cavaliers 45) or assists (Warriors 24, Cavaliers 19). The biggest difference might have been the benches. The Warriors’ reserves outscored the Cavs’ 34-9, with J.R. Smith the only Cleveland reserve to score — and he was three of 13 from the field. In the end, it came down to the biggest stars making plays — or not. James and Curry carried their clubs through the fourth quarter, trading scores and assists in a back-and-forth duel in front of a sellout crowd of 19,596 — most wearing those blinding, golden yellow shirts. Both also had a chance to win the game in regulation.

Curry, the current MVP, beat Irving of the dribble and moved in for the go-ahead layup. Instead, Irving blocked Curry from behind, Smith came up with the rebound and the Cavs called a timeout with 24.1 seconds left. James, trying to end Cleveland’s 51-year championship drought, dribbled down the

clock and missed a contested jumper over Andre Iguodala just inside the left arc, and Iman Shumpert’s desperation shot nearly rimmed in at the buzzer, sending a collective sigh through the crowd. The Cavs never came so close again. Curry drew two deep shooting fouls at the start of overtime and made all four free throws, and Harrison Barnes hit a corner 3 just in front of the Cavs bench to give Golden State a 105-98 lead with 2:02 to play and send the crowd screaming. Irving, who finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and six assists, limped to the bench trying to shake of his troublesome left leg after the play. He was replaced by Matthew Dellavedova. The Warriors went ahead 108-98 on free throws with 1:16 to play. James’ layup with 8.9 seconds left accounted for Cleveland’s only points in overtime. Klay Thompson, who wasn’t cleared to play until Tuesday after suffering a concussion last week, scored 21 points and Iguodala added 15 points for a Warriors team that started slow but closed with a flurry. “That’s what we’ve been doing the whole year — wearing down teams,” Thompson said. Both teams got through their early jitters and both stars were in full force. James looked calm and cool on basketball’s biggest stage to guide the Cavaliers to a 2915 lead late in the first quarter. But the Cavs scored just two points in 4 minutes without James to start the second quarter as the Warriors came rolling back.

Matsuyama tied for lead at Memorial Defending champ and Van Pelt shoot 64 ASSOCIATED PRESS

DUBLIN, oHIo • Hideki Matsuyama was bracing for a rough day at the Memorial and wound up with a share of the lead Thursday. Tiger Woods still doesn’t know what to expect. Matsuyama made a bold start in his bid to join Woods as the only repeat winners at Muirfield Village by running of four straight birdies on the back nine and one strong par save on his way to an 8-under 64 that tied the Japanese star with Bo Van Pelt. “To be honest with you, up until yesterday I was not hitting the ball very well, I was not chipping very well, I was not putting very well,” Matsuyama said through a translator. “And I don’t know what happened overnight. We just caught magic.” It was a dream start for Van Pelt for other reasons. He grew up across the state line in Indiana and used to play hooky from school to attend the Memorial from the time he was 10 until he got out of high school. Muirfield Village is where he first dreamed about playing the PGA Tour. In calm conditions under an overcast sky, Van Pelt made a career-best 10 birdies for his best score in 41 rounds at the course Jack Nicklaus built. “Other than the Masters, this tournament means more to me than any one I’ve ever played,” Van Pelt said. “So it’s always good to play well around a place that means a lot to you.” Woods, a five-time winner of the Memorial, wasn’t sure what he was going to get. He hooked his tee shot and started with a bogey for the eighth time in his last nine starts on the PGA Tour. He went so far right off the tee at the 18th that it went out-of-bounds (the next tee shot wasn’t much better) and made double bogey to go out in 40. He hooked his 3-wood on the first hole. It was looking like another big number. Instead, Woods battled to save pars and convert birdies, and he salvaged a 73 that left him nine shots behind. “Physically, I feel good. Mentally, I feel beat up,” Woods said. “To turn that round around like I did today ... that was hard.” Matsuyama won the Memorial last year in a playof. It was his first win in America and validated him as one of the many rising stars in golf. He said every course on the PGA Tour feels diicult to him, and even when he made a pair of 15-foot birdie putts on his way to a 32 on the front nine while playing with Phil Mickelson (72) and Rickie Fowler (72), he wasn’t comfortable. “I was just trying to hang on,” he said. So was Jason Dufner, the former PGA champion, whose tie for eighth last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson ended a stretch of 17 events on American soil without a top 10. He was tied for the lead after making a 60-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole and was still poised to join Matsuyama and Van Pelt at 64 until he pulled his tee shot into the water on the 18th and closed with a double bogey. That put him at 66, along with Russell Knox, who fed his putts of the ridges beautifully in making seven birdies. Harris English and Kevin Kisner were among those at 67. Masters champion Jordan Spieth had a 68.

GOLF ROUNDUP Woods tied for LPGA lead Cheyenne Woods, Cristie Kerr and P.K. Kongkraphan matched the course record at 9-under 63 on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Manulife LPGA Classic in Cambridge, Ontario. Woods, Tiger Woods’ niece, and the others tied the Whistle Bear Golf Club record set by Matt Bettencourt and Jon Mills, in the Web.com Tour’s 2005 Canadian PGA Championship. The tournament is in its first year at Whistle Bear after three years at Grey Silo in Waterloo, Ontario. Woods had an eagle, eight birdies and a bogey. The 24-year-old LPGA rookie won the Ladies European Tour’s Australian Ladies Masters last year. European Tour • Swedish amateur Marcus Kinhult was in a three-way tie for the lead after the opening day of the Nordea Masters at 5-under-par 67 on Thursday in Malmo, Sweden. Countryman Jens Dantorp and England’s Chris Paisley were with him, one stroke ahead of nine golfers at 4 under. World No. 4 Henrik Stenson came in at 2 under, while defending champion Thongchai Jaidee carded a 1-over 73. Associated Press

NFL NOTEBOOK

Hayes, Long try to help homeless Rams DEs spend a night on the street to shine light on issue BY JOE LYONS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

For the Rams’ Chris Long, it was an eye-opener. For fellow defensive end William Hayes, it was humbling and it was uncomfortable. What started as a casual chat on a team bus ride through a rough neighborhood in St. Louis turned into a life-changing experience as best friends and teammates Hayes and Long decided to spend a March night as homeless men in downtown St. Louis. The experience was part of a recent ESPN feature “Life on the Streets.” “It was never about putting us into the spotlight or about getting any kind of publicity,” Hayes stressed. “Riding on the bus and seeing the homeless, I asked Chris if he thought he could handle something like that. We decided to try it and maybe do a segment for RBN (Rams Broadcast Network), but ESPN got wind of it and jumped on board to take it to a whole new level. “At the end of the day, we were able to raise awareness of the situation and that’s a good thing.” For several seasons, the Rams’ defensive line has donated $1,000 per sack to benefit the St. Patrick Center. But Hayes and Long wanted to do more. “Homelessness has been one of Will’s causes for some time and we wanted to find a way to at least try to experience it,” Long said. “You never truly understand what it’s like because we were only doing it for 24 hours. I get that and I agree with that. But the experience itself was an eye-opener for me and I would challenge anybody who says what we did was useless.” With the help of the Rams’ community outreach department, Hayes and Long were disguised in secondhand clothes and makeup and were given $4 apiece. After being run of from an abandoned building, they spent the night in the back of a vacant truck as temperatures dipped into the 30s. The next day, they panhandled outside the Edward Jones Dome. “I made $6,” Long said. And Hayes? “Not a dollar,’’ he said. “I was on the wrong (passenger) side of the street and I looked a little more intimidating than Chris. Plus, he was more talkative. I’m glad he was able to make some money because we were able to get some White Castles. “I tried my best, but it was a lot harder to do than I expected. You really have to put your pride aside because you’re not asking, you’re pleading.” When asked about panhandling, Long mentioned the “invisibility factor.” “It’s another extreme we’d never experienced,” said Long, who recently set up the Chris Long Foundation to raise money to help build wells in East Africa to deliver clean water in poor areas. “And it forced me to

do a little self-inventory: How do I treat homeless people? The thing is, most of us are lucky to have safety nets in our lives. We make mistakes, but we have a support system around us that helps us deal with those mistakes. You’re thankful of that, but you also realize how many people out there don’t have that safety net. “A lot of people are a mistake away from being in a situation like that. Another thing you realize is how hard it’d be to get your life together if you didn’t have a roof over your head. For people like that, every day is a struggle for survival.” On Wednesday afternoon, in Rams jerseys outside the Cardinals’ game against Milwaukee, Long and Hayes raised about $1,500 in 90 minutes. “I think it’s easy to take things

we have for granted,” Hayes said. “But an experience like this, I think it helps put things in perspective. I have three kids and I’m grateful to be able to support my kids. But the reality is, there’s a woman out there tonight with her child and she’s trying to get into a shelter and if that doesn’t work out, she’ll have to do what she can to survive.” Hayes continued: “I always told myself that if I got to a certain level in my life, I’d try to do something to help people, and I’ve always been really sensitive to homelessness. I try to give what I can, but the money only goes so far when you don’t have a roof over your head. It’s a situation that deserves a lot more attention.”

When asked about the Rams’ relocation rumors, head coach Jeff Fisher replied, “It’s not a distraction. We can’t let it be a distraction. I’ve been through it once (when the Oilers left Houston in 1996 and became the Tennessee Titans). ... It’s been my opinion really from the start when all this started happening that I’m better of probably not knowing the specifics. That way, when someone asks me, I can say, ‘I don’t know.’ And when I say it, I’m telling the truth. “Our focus is on this next week of OTAs. This fall, we’ll be playing football here. I think that’s the best way to approach it.” • With offensive line holdovers Rodger Saffold (shoulder) and Greg Robinson (toe) limited as they return from offseason surgery, the first-unit offensive line Thursday featured Brandon Washington at left tackle, Garrett Reynolds at left guard, Barrett Jones at center, rookie Jamon Brown at right guard and rookie Rob Havenstein at right tackle. • In addition to Saffold and Robinson, others being brought along slowly are wide receiver Brian Quick, who’s coming off shoulder surgery, and the Rams’ No. 1 draft pick, Todd Gurley, who is able to go through his rehab running and agility drills while the rest of the team practices. “Todd’s doing a great job with his rehab,” Fisher said. “He’s very anxious. He’s probably a little frustrated, probably deep down inside not really happy right now, but he’s anxious to get out there right now, so that’s going well.” • The Rams’ veteran defense had a clear edge on the ofense during Thursday’s workout. That’s not surprising when you consider the relative inexperience of the offensive line and that new QB Nick Foles is still getting to know his receivers. Joe Lyons jlyons@post-dispatch.com

WR Sasser fails physical with heart condition Rams • fRom C1

Post-Dispatch via phone: “I’m all right. It’ll work out. I’m not down. You can put that out there.” Sasser stopped just short himself of confirming the heart condition, saying, “it’s not 100 percent true,” and adding, “we’re going to figure it out.” Those later comments by Sasser no doubt are related to encouraging medical reports he received from a cardiologist in Dallas as well as specialists from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. “The Mayo Clinic doctor did say Bud was such a low risk, he should be able to play,” said Scott Thiel, Sasser’s agent. “The doctors at the Mayo Clinic said they had several patients that came in with that exact case that are currently playing in the NFL.” Thiel said the Dallas cardiologist also provided a letter in which he states Sasser should be able to play. “He said it’s not an issue,” Thiel said, speaking of the Dallas cardiologist. “He said Bud’s stress test, and different tests like that were in the 99th percentile — that he has an extremely healthy heart.” But the Rams obviously didn’t want to take the risk, which is

something Sasser and Thiel totally understood. “The Rams have been great, I want to make sure that’s known,” Thiel said. “They’ve been nothing but class. But at the end of the day, any risk for them was too much risk.” According to Thiel, Sasser’s condition is genetic. He’s had it from birth. To his knowledge the heart issue either didn’t show up in tests at Mizzou, or wasn’t deemed a problem. Privacy laws prevent the university from commenting on Sasser’s medical history, but Mizzou athletics spokesman Chad Moller said the Tigers wouldn’t clear a player to play if it suspected he had a serious health issue. Following his Mizzou career, Sasser didn’t get invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, so he didn’t undergo the exhaustive battery of medical tests that take place there in February. In addition, Sasser didn’t work out or pay a predraft visit to the Rams, so the team didn’t have much medical information on him prior to the draft. “Typically what you do is you contact the university, which we did,” Fisher said. “And this was just one of those things that kind of slipped through the cracks.”

During the predraft process Sasser paid visits to Green Bay, Houston, Kansas City and Oakland. (Reports that he also visited Denver were erroneous.) There were rumors that some teams backed off Sasser in the draft because of the heart issue. But if that was the case, Thiel said he was unaware of it — no team alerted him about any health concerns. There’s no doubt the Rams wanted to make it work with Sasser. There was no guarantee he’d make the final roster on a depth chart that returned the top five wide receivers from 2014. But the Rams liked his size (6-3, 219), strong hands, catch radius and ability to come down with the contested throw. After a breakout 2014 season, which saw Sasser finish among the Southeastern Conference leaders in both catches (77) and yards (1,003) plus score 12 touchdowns, it was surprising that he didn’t get a Combine invite. In addition, he was not invited to any of the postseason all-star games, such as the Senior Bowl. It all added to the chip on Sasser’s shoulder and the determination to make it in the NFL. When he finally got the call May 2 in the sixth round at No. 201 overall, Sasser could hardly con-

tain his enthusiasm. “Oh my gosh, if this isn’t the greatest feeling I’ve ever felt in my life, then I don’t know what would be,” Sasser said that day on a conference call with reporters. It was hoped that he could provide some of the “sixthround magic” that former Mizzou teammate E.J. Gaines provided as a rookie sixth-rounder a year ago — having an immediate impact at cornerback. But then came the results of his Rams physical, follow-up results, and then Thursday’s release. Sasser never took part in a Rams practice. “You definitely have to feel for the guy,” veteran Rams wideout Kenny Britt said. “Especially when you’re this close to making your dreams come true. “He worked so hard from grammar school, to high school and to college. You know that you get this next step and your dreams come true. Something like that is kind of sad. My heart and prayers go out to him.” Dave Matter of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this story.

NFL owners will discuss LA relocation in August NFL owners will hold a special meeting about a potential relocation of a team or teams to Los Angeles on Aug. 11 in Chicago. The need for such a meeting became clear after the 32 owners were updated last month on stadium developments both in Los Angeles and in the three cities with teams interested in moving: San Diego, St. Louis and Oakland. Owners will receiver further updates on those three markets, but are not expected to approve either of the proposed stadium sites in the LA area in August. They will discuss moving up the time frame for the Chargers, Rams and Raiders to apply to relocate, but almost certainly won’t take action on that until their October meetings in New York. The window for application begins in January, but could be moved up into the fall. Instead, the Chicago gathering will be a fact-finding meeting to help set an agenda for October. Good OTAs for Cardinals • The Arizona Cardinals wrapped up what coach Bruce Arians called “outstanding” OTAs, the team displaying an obvious air of confidence about what lies ahead in the coming season. “We got a lot accomplished as a football team,” Arians said after Thursday’s session, “in every phase — special teams, ofense, defense. Everybody got better.” The Cardinals have three days of minicamp next week, then are of until training camp begins in late July. “I’m very, very intrigued to see what we can do this year,” defensive end Calais Campbell said. “This team is special. Talent’s not the issue, leadership’s not the issue. We have all the pieces in place. We’ve got to go out there and handle business, but we’ll come back ready to work and when the time comes we’ll figure out how good we can be.” The team’s optimism stems from the way the Cardinals played through most of last season before injuries to their top two quarterbacks. The Cardinals were 9-1, the best record in the NFL at that point, but quarterback Carson Palmer went down with a torn ACL. Then backup Drew Stanton was sidelined with a knee injury. The ofense vanished and the defense, so stout through most of the season, showed cracks as the team staggered to the finish line. Still, at 11-5, Arizona made the playofs, losing at Carolina in the wild card game. The Cardinals are healthy now, or at least almost so. Palmer participated in OTAs but was held out of 11-on-11 drills as a precaution. He could take some reps in those drills in next week’s minicamp and expects to be ready to fully participate in training camp. “I think OTAs went great from day one,” cornerback Jerraud Powers said. “It seems like the ofense was just clicking. It wasn’t like guys were trying to learn. It was just more so finding your tools.” Redskins investigating incident • The Washington Redskins say they are investigating what they called “an of-field situation” involving fourth-round draft pick Jamison Crowder. Crowder’s Instagram feed Wednesday night briefly included photographs of a woman who claims to have been abused by the receiver. The photos show a cut on her inner lip and bruises on her arm. They have been deleted, but screenshots circulated Thursday on social media. Crowder played four years at Duke and tied the Atlantic Coast Conference record with 283 career receptions before he was drafted by Washington. Raiders sign WR, LB • The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent receiver Kris Durham and undrafted free agent linebacker Chase Williams. The Raiders also announced that they waived tight end Scott Simonson and waived linebacker Jacoby Hale with an injury designation. Oakland also placed receiver Andre Debose on the reserve-injured list and waived linebacker Miles Burris from that list. Durham has played 27 games for Tennessee, Detroit and Seattle over the past four seasons. He has 55 career catches for 699 yards and three touchdowns. Bowlen’s son arrested • John Bowlen Jr., the 29-year-old son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and an administrative employee of the team, has been placed on indefinite leave following his arrest on domestic violence charges. The younger Bowlen was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of third-degree assault and harassment. Associated Press

BELMONT STAKES

FiShing RepoRt

Distance, rivals challenge Pharoah Horse is 3-5 favorite to win Triple Crown

Belmont StAkeS Field

ASSoCiAted pReSS

NEW YORK • All that separates American Pharoah from ending the longest drought in horse racing history — 37 years without a Triple Crown winner — is 1½ miles and seven rivals determined to make him earn a victory Saturday in the Belmont Stakes. Twelve horses before him have tried to complete the sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont and failed since 1978. Now it’s American Pharoah’s turn. The bay colt with the unusually short tail appears to have come through the Derby and Preakness with energy to spare, and he’ll need it in the longest and most grueling of the three-race series. American Pharoah galloped around the big Belmont oval Thursday before visiting the paddock where he will be saddled on race day. He will take to the track again Friday for his final tuneup. He is the heavy 3-5 early favorite. Before Affirmed swept the 1978 Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont, 25 years had passed between Triple Crown winners Citation in 1948 and Secretariat in 1973. Now it’s 37 years, with a chance for American Pharoah to make history and goose the struggling sport or become just another miss. “There’s a lot of anxiety,” said Bob Baffert, the only trainer to lose the Belmont three times with horses that had won the first two legs. “I don’t even think about the history.” American Pharoah and seven rivals will run the longest race of their lives Saturday. If there’s rain in the forecast, give the edge to American Pharoah, who romped to

Exercise rider Jorge Alvarez gallops Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner American Pharoah at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., on Thursday.

a seven-length win in the Preakness after a massive downpour occurred as the horses were going to the starting gate. The colt’s grand-sire, Empire Maker, won the 2003 Belmont, spoiling Funny Cide’s Triple Crown bid. This time, the competition seems committed to sticking closer to American Pharoah, whose preferred running style is at the front, although he’s shown he can sit of the early pace and win. How many of the horses press the early pace will determine who has enough gas left for the 1,097-yard run down the stretch. “I want him to break cleanly and freely,” Bafert said, “and have Victor (Espinoza) put him in the mode where he’s comfortable. I’m sure they’re all going to be pretty close together.” Just as horses aren’t used to

running 1½ miles, jockeys aren’t used to riding races that long, either. The Belmont has undone some who have moved too soon and burned out their horses. Others have moved too late and let the leaders get away. The track’s deep, sandy surface can prove tiring, the turns are sweeping, and the poles used by jockeys to judge their location are placed diferently than at the mile tracks where most of them ride. American Pharoah’s Californiabased jockey, Espinoza, has experience in the Belmont, having lost two other Triple tries, with California Chrome last year and War Emblem in 2002. American Pharoah will be the only horse to run in all three Triple Crown races this year. Five of his rivals already lost to him in the Derby, one was beaten by him in the Preakness, while another is

new to the series. Madefromlucky, who along with Materiality are trainer Todd Pletcher’s two entries, has trained and won at Belmont Park. How American Pharoah handles the extra quarter-mile in the Belmont will be crucial to his chances. “If American Pharoah can get a mile and a half on Saturday, all of our hats will be of to him,” said Jerry Crawford, who owns 20-1 shot Keen Ice. “But it’s our job to do what we can to make the race honest.” Materiality, who finished sixth in the Derby and is the early 6-1 third choice, figures to go to the lead out of the No. 8 post. American Pharoah, who drew the No. 5 post, will likely be tracking him heading into the first turn. Frosted, the early 5-1 second choice, will probably be anywhere from third to sixth in the early going.

ST. LOUIS • More than $6,000 of prize money was paid out Thursday in the eighth annual Festival of Miles track and field meet on the campus of St. Louis U. High. Even in those races, the night belonged to a couple of amateurs. Eureka High’s Hannah Long and Grant Fisher of Grand Blanc, Mich., are bound for Stanford in a couple of months. The pair gave the folks in Palo Alto, Calif., plenty of reason to be excited. Long, a 13-time Missouri state champion, finished fifth in the elite 800 against the field of professionals. Her time of 2 minutes, 4.23 seconds, was her personal best by a bunch and the fastest time for a high schooler in the 800 this season. “The crowed was so loud, it made me want to push even harder,” Long said. “It’s amazing. A lot of work has been put into these moments and these kinds of races. It’s awesome to finish high school on a great note.” Long’s performance had an overflow crowd plenty impressed with her finish in a field led by three-time NCAA champion LaTavia Thomas, who won and set the meet record of 2:00.99 for a $1,000 bonus in addition to her $1,000 first-place prize. Lauren Wallace, the U.S. Indoor champion at 1,000 meters in March, finished second in 2:01.13 — also under the previous meet record — and 2005 Eureka graduate Shannon Leinert was third in 2:01.62. Fans really got into a frenzy the the men’s elite mile, which featured defending champ Jordan McNamara. The meet record holder, McNamara won in 3:58.81 and Tyler Pennell was just behind in 3:58.99. Fisher followed in 3:59.38, becoming just the seventh high schooler ever to break the 4-minute barrier in the mile. “A privilege to watch him

lesson a long time ago. The Eureka High baseball coach knows to stay away from senior pitcher Blake Clynes on the day the lefthander goes to the mound. “He’s so focused, so into what he’s planning to do, it’s like a diferent person out there,” Dafron said. “You just don’t want to bother him. He’s in a zone. Get out of the way and let him do what he needs to do to get ready.” That strategy has worked perfectly for Daffron, Clynes and the Wildcats. Clynes, with his razor-sharp focus and preparation, has developed into one of the top southpaws in the state. His 4-1 record and 1.63 ERA have helped Eureka reach the Class 5 state tournament for the first time since 2001. The Wildcats (24-4) take on Staley (26-4) in a state semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Friday at T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon. Clynes has played a key role in the school’s third state-tournament berth. He turned in the performance of a lifetime in a 2-0, eight-inning win over Jackson in a quarterfinal game on May 28. Clynes went the distance allowing just three hits on the road against a high-octane attack. And he did so with his usual stoic game-day routine. “On days that he’s pitching, we just leave him alone,” said his mother, Kim. “We know better than to get in his way.” Clynes is not necessarily mean to those around him on game day. He just prefers to stay focused on the task at hand. “I don’t like any distractions,” Clynes said. “I keep to myself. Then around lunch time, it’s all about dialing in and getting ready for the start.” That philosophy has served Clynes well. He recently accepted a scholarship to pitch at Ohio Valley Conference member Murray State University, in Murray, Kentucky. Dafron has no doubt that Clynes will succeed. “He’s a pitcher’s pitcher, if that makes sense,” Daffron said. “He has the tools, the drive, the desire, everything that is needed at that

level.” Clynes, a first team all-Suburban West Conference choice, did not have a smooth ride to the top. He sufered a minor shoulder impingement prior to his junior season and was forced to sit out the entire campaign. He compiled a 7-0 record as a sophomore and was one of the area’s top returning hurlers before the injury forced him to the sidelines. “It was one of those freak things that just happens,” he said. Clynes said sitting out an entire year was the toughest thing he’s ever had to do. Clynes’ strength lies in his ability to take control out on the hill. He has a better-than-average fastball and his baseball sense is of the charts, according to Dafron. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Clynes is a methodical hurler who likes to work fast. “He has a great tempo,” Dafron says. “With him it’s, (get the) ball, (get the) sign and go.” Clynes is one of a three-headed pitching monster for the Wildcats. Senior Bo Highfill (8-1, 1.73) and junior Nate Witherspoon (6-1, 1.50) are also expected to make noise in the state tournament. Hillfill will start the opening game against Staley. Clynes will go in the second game, whether it is the state championship tilt, or the third-place afair. When he is not pitching, Clynes plays first base and sports a .385 batting average with two home runs and a team-high 23 RBI.

come out here and do what he does,” McNamara said of Fisher in the post-race interview to the crowd. “Phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal.” Fisher said running under 4 minutes hadn’t been a goal he was focused on much of this spring and only recently became something he considered. With fans running across the infield at SLUH to cheer on the field of 13 runners, Fisher said he got the push he needed. “It was incredibly loud — hard not to hear that,” Fisher said. “They gave me a boost. Being in a packed-in arena, with fast guys going by you, it’s awesome. It’s kind of hard not

to run fast.” Fisher said he also was well aware of what his future Stanford teammate had done about 20 minutes before he got on the track. Through national meets over the years, Fisher said he and Long have struck up a friendship he expects to continue in college. “It was definitely inspiring to see that, before I raced, knowing a high schooler just like me that is going to the same school next year can run fast and run with the pros,” Fisher said. “Definitely a confidence booster.”

Gamache hadn’t a clue. Tori Sanders was surprised. A senior forward and senior defender, respectively, for the Incarnate Word soccer team, neither Gamache or Sanders were aware they play for the best soccer program in state history. Incarnate Word has won 31 successive district championships. It has nine state titles, 19 state semifinal appearances and 68 postseason victories, all of which are by far and away the most in the state. “I didn’t know that, it’s pretty cool,” Gamache said Thursday at the Lou Fusz Soccer Training Facility. “That’s awesome.” Much of that success, however, has not come recently. Incarnate Word broke a five-year final four drought last week when it beat St. Dominic 1-0 in the quarterfinal. The No. 5 small school in the STLhighschoolsports.com rankings, Incarnate Word (14-8-2) advanced to play No. 2 large school Summit (23-2-1) in a Class 3 semifinal at 2 p.m. Friday at Blue Springs South High. It is the second appearance at the state final four for Summit and first since 2001 when it lost 2-1 to St. Joseph’s in the Class 4A title match. The Red Knights are back and it comes as no surprise to coach Beth Sims. In her first year as coach, Sims, a 1997 graduate and two-time champion at Incarnate, believed this team had the talent. It was a mere matter of the pieces falling into place. “We knew coming in we had a good team. We told the girls to bear with us. The first part of the season we played the first half of our schedule in the first three weeks,” Sims said. “We told them from the beginning we’re a final four team.” Among those pieces that had to fall into place was Gamache. Overloaded with strong defenders, the Red Knights were in need of a striker. Gamache fit the bill with her speed, stamina, courage and foot skills. She has a team-high 12 goals and has enjoyed playing up top. But it took time for everyone to get on the same page. The first part of the season took its toll on the Red

Knights. There were days they were lights out and days they were not. Six of their eight losses are by one goal..” Turns out the Red Knights found themselves in a loss. Depending on who you ask, it was either when Nerinx Hall beat them 2-1 or when Collinsville nipped them 2-1 in overtime. “We definitely started off slow. But the game I realized we were clicking as a team was the Nerinx game. We played so good,” Gamache said. “We ended up losing 2-1, but none of us were upset.” Much of the Red Knights motivation comes from the belief that no one thought they could beat St. Dominic, even though they beat the Crusaders 1-0 in the second week of the season. Gamache still gets fired up when she thinks about it. She took it as a lack of respect and it irritates her. “To beat teams like Dominic who people said we couldn’t beat, it’s just awesome,” Gamache said. “I’m still so happy about that game. When we won, it was such a great feeling.” Winning was good, but the showering of affection from the alumni and the student section really hit home with Sanders. She and her teammates watched what happened when the basketball team made its postseason runs. For the soccer team to do it, brought the spotlight on them and it felt fantastic. “It was kind of cool to see the crowd this year and see our friends get involved in the soccer program,” Sanders said.”

He’s in a zone. Get out of the way and let him do what he needs to do to get ready.” That strategy has worked perfectly for Daffron, Clynes and the Wildcats. Clynes, with his razor-sharp focus and preparation, has developed into one of the top southpaws in the state. His 4-1 record and 1.63 ERA have helped Eureka reach the Class 5 state tournament for the first time since 2001. The Wildcats (24-4) take on Staley (26-4) in a state semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Friday at T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon. Clynes has played a key role in the school’s third state-tournament berth. He turned in the performance of a lifetime in a 2-0, eight-inning win over Jackson in a quarterfinal game on May 28. Clynes went the distance allowing just three hits on the road against a high-octane attack. And he did so with his usual stoic game-day routine. “On days that he’s pitching, we just leave him alone,” said his mother, Kim. “We know better than to get in his way.” Clynes is not necessarily mean to those around him on game day. He just prefers to stay focused on the task at hand. “I don’t like any distractions,” Clynes said. “I keep to myself. Then around lunch time, it’s all about dialing in and getting ready for the start.” That philosophy has served Clynes well. He recently accepted a scholarship to pitch at Ohio Valley Conference member Murray State University, in Murray, Kentucky. Dafron has no doubt that Clynes will succeed. “He’s a pitcher’s pitcher, if that makes sense,” Daffron said. “He has the tools, the drive, the desire, everything that is needed at that

level.” Clynes, a first team all-Suburban West Conference choice, did not have a smooth ride to the top. He sufered a minor shoulder impingement prior to his junior season and was forced to sit out the entire campaign. He compiled a 7-0 record as a sophomore and was one of the area’s top returning hurlers before the injury forced him to the sidelines. “It was one of those freak things that just happens,” he said. Clynes said sitting out an entire year was the toughest thing he’s ever had to do. Clynes’ strength lies in his ability to take control out on the hill. He has a better-than-average fastball and his baseball sense is of the charts, according to Dafron. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Clynes is a methodical hurler who likes to work fast. “He has a great tempo,” Dafron says. “With him it’s, (get the) ball, (get the) sign and go.” Clynes is one of a three-headed pitching monster for the Wildcats. Senior Bo Highfill (8-1, 1.73) and junior Nate Witherspoon (6-1, 1.50) are also expected to make noise in the state tournament. Hillfill will start the opening game against Staley. Clynes will go in the second game, whether it is the state championship tilt, or the third-place afair. When he is not pitching, Clynes plays first base and sports a .385 batting average with two home runs and a team-high 23 RBI.

Mascots cross the inish line in the 400-meter mascot race at the eighthannual Festival of Miles on Thursday at St. Louis U. High.

With fans running across the infield at SLUH to cheer on the field of 13 runners, Fisher said he got the push he needed. “It was incredibly loud —hard not to hear that,” Fisher said. “They gave me a boost. Being in a packed-in arena, with fast guys going by you, it’s awesome. It’s kind of hard not to run fast.” Fisher said he also was well aware of what his future Stanford teammate had done about 20 minutesbeforehegotonthetrack. Through national meets, Fisher said he and Long have struck up a friendship he expects to continue in college. “It was definitely inspiring to see that, before I raced, knowing a high schooler just like me that is going to the same school next year can run fast and run with the pros,” Fisher said. “Definitely a confidence booster.”

But West didn’t quit, and when she got her opportunity, blazed to a second-place finish in 4 minutes, 52.82 seconds. Stephanie Jenks, a national standout from Linn-Marr (Iowa), won in 4:47.82. “I was fourth or fifth and in the last 200, I saw a few girls start slowing down,” West said. “I wanted to see how fast my legs could take me in the last 200. It was the last 200 meters of my junior year, and there were a few college coaches here.” West won the Missouri Class 5 state title in the 3,200 meters May 29 in Jefferson City and had a very good junior season overall. She said the waterfall start to the race threw her of and she had to catch up the rest of the race, culminating in her fast finish.

Tradition-rich Incarnate Word looking to regain past success By DaviD KviDahl STLhighschoolsports.com

MARYLAND HEIGHTS • Lauryn Gamache hadn’t a clue. Tori Sanders was surprised. A senior forward and senior defender, respectively, for the Incarnate Word soccer team, neither Gamache or Sanders were aware they play for the best soccer program in state history. Incarnate Word has won 31 successive district championships. It has nine state titles, 19 state semifinal appearances and 68 postseason victories, all of which are by far and away the most in the state. “I didn’t know that, it’s pretty cool,” Gamache said Thursday at the Lou Fusz Soccer Training Facility. “That’s awesome.” Much of that success, however, has not come recently. Incarnate Word broke a five-year final four drought last week when it beat St. Dominic 1-0 in the quarterfinal. The No. 5 small school in the STLhighschoolsports.com rankings, Incarnate Word (14-8-2) advanced to play No. 2 large school Summit (23-2-1) in a Class 3 semifinal at 2 p.m. Friday at Blue Springs South High. It is the second appearance at the state final four for Summit and first since 2001 when it lost 2-1 to St. Joseph’s in the Class 4A title match. The Red Knights are back and it comes as no surprise to coach Beth Sims. In her first year as coach, Sims, a 1997 graduate and two-time champion at Incarnate, believed this team had the talent. It was a mere matter of the pieces falling into place. “We knew coming in we had a good team. We told the girls to bear with us. The first part of the season we played the first half of our schedule in the first three weeks,” Sims said. “We told them from the beginning we’re a final four team.” Among those pieces that had to fall into place was Gamache. Overloaded with strong defenders, the Red Knights were in need of a striker. Gamache fit the bill with her speed, stamina, courage and foot skills. She has a team-high 12 goals and has enjoyed playing up top. But it took time for everyone to get on the same page. The first part of the season took its toll on the Red

Knights. There were days they were lights out and days they were not. Six of their eight losses are by one goal..” Turns out the Red Knights found themselves in a loss. Depending on who you ask, it was either when Nerinx Hall beat them 2-1 or when Collinsville nipped them 2-1 in overtime. “We definitely started off slow. But the game I realized we were clicking as a team was the Nerinx game. We played so good,” Gamache said. “We ended up losing 2-1, but none of us were upset.” Much of the Red Knights motivation comes from the belief that no one thought they could beat St. Dominic, even though they beat the Crusaders 1-0 in the second week of the season. Gamache still gets fired up when she thinks about it. She took it as a lack of respect and it irritates her. “To beat teams like Dominic who people said we couldn’t beat, it’s just awesome,” Gamache said. “I’m still so happy about that game. When we won, it was such a great feeling.” Winning was good, but the showering of affection from the alumni and the student section really hit home with Sanders. She and her teammates watched what happened when the basketball team made its postseason runs. For the soccer team to do it, brought the spotlight on them and it felt fantastic. “It was kind of cool to see the crowd this year and see our friends get involved in the soccer program,” Sanders said.”

Williams overcomes illness to advance She battles back to win in three sets and reach the inal

Women’s semiinal results • No. 1 Serena Williams beat No. 23 Timea Bacsinszky 4-6, 6-3, 6-0, No. 13 Lucie Safarova beat No. 7 Ana Ivanovic 7-5, 7-5. Stat of the day • 4 — Comeback victories for Williams after dropping the irst set during the French Open, her most during a single Grand Slam tournament. Quote of the day • “There is no logical explanation.” — Patrick Mouratoglou, Williams’ coach, speaking about her comeback from a set and a break down against Bacsinszky despite dealing with what he said was a fever and breathing diiculty. On court Friday • No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 3 Andy Murray, No. 8 Stan Wawrinka vs. No. 14 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the men’s semiinals. Friday’s forecast • Chance of a storm, including hail. High of 90 degrees.

ASSoCiAted PreSS

PARIS • At changeovers in her French Open semifinal, an ill Serena Williams walked ever so slowly to the sideline, where even lowering herself to sit seemed diicult. With the temperature nearing 85 degrees, she pressed white towels filled with ice against her forehead and neck and guzzled water. Early on, her play was as poor as her health. She failed to chase balls she normally would. As telling as anything: On those occasions when she did win points, Williams mostly refrained from her familiar fist pumps and yells of “Come on!” Never can count her out, though, no matter the circumstances. Down a set and a break Thursday, and clearly not herself, Williams summoned the resolve to reach the final by beating 23rd-seeded Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland 4-6, 6-3, 6-0. After getting broken to fall behind 3-2 in the second set, Williams claimed the final 10 games. She had a 12-2 edge in winners in the final set. “Stunning,” said Williams’ coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. “This is the difference between champions and everyone else. There is no logical explanation.” Mouratoglou said the No. 1-ranked Williams has been dealing for several days with the flu, including a fever and diiculty breathing. Williams skipped her news conference — something sister Venus did after losing last week, drawing a $3,000 fine — and issued a statement reading: “I have been feeling unwell for a few days, and ... I needed to see the tournament doctor.” Now one victory from her third French Open championship and 20th major title in all, Williams faces 13thseeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic on Saturday. “I tried everything. I thought if I lose, I will lose with a fight,” Williams told the crowd in French. “I tried, I tried. I found the energy. I don’t know where, but I found it. And I won. I hope that on Saturday, I hope ...” Cutting herself off, she stepped away from the microphone, bent over and began coughing. She offered a quick wave, collected her things and left. Of the court, she got a hug from Mouratoglou, who helped her down

stairs toward the locker room. “I was worried,” said Williams’ mother, Oracene Price. “But I knew if she could get through the second set, somehow maybe the adrenaline and God would help her get through the match.” Next comes Williams’ 24th Grand Slam final, and Safarova’s first. In her statement, Williams called herself “determined to be 100 percent ready.” The lefthanded Safarova eliminated defending champion Maria Sharapova in the fourth round and 2008 champion Ana Ivanovic 7-5, 7-5 on Thursday. Williams won her semifinal despite dropping the first set for the fourth time in six matches. She’d never fashioned that many comebacks during one major tournament. When this one was over, finally over, Williams leaned forward and rested her head on her hands atop the handle of her upside-down racket. Bacsinszky — who said she noticed Williams “was taking some time between points” but tried to focus on herself — was asked how her own mistakes contributed to the result. “We say in French: ‘If we could put Paris in a bottle.’ Like, I could say, ‘If, if, if. If my forehand was in. If I would maybe choose another tactic,’” Bacsinszky said. Bacsinszky wiped away tears as she left the court, her magical run

abruptly done. She never had been past the second round in Paris — or the third round at any major. When the going gets toughest, no one is better than Williams at the moment — and, perhaps, in the history of the game. In 2015, she is 31-1, including 11-0 in three-setters. If she defeats Safarova, the 33-year-old American would add to her 2002 and 2013 French Open titles and collect a third consecutive major championship. “She never thought about withdrawing,” Mouratoglou said. “Even on one leg, she will step on court. She always believes that she can pull through. This is her strength. You can’t take it away from her.”

Smart ways to spruce up a small space can promote organization without exhausting limited floor and counter space. Bring cozy kitchens to the next level with shelving that reaches the ceiling. Install electrical outlets within shelving so you don’t have to move appliances to use them. Floating shelves allow you to show off favorite accessories, like cookbooks, vases and baskets, while boosting storage capacity. Repurpose old barn wood for a rustic look or utilize plumbing pipe for an industrial and modern design.

(StatePoint) Giving a design facelift to small spaces may seem challenging. But you can make more of every square inch with creative solutions. Light Small spaces need natural light. Try hanging curtains beyond the window frame and near the ceiling to let in more. This drapery placement makes windows look larger and adds to the perceived height of the room. Add a large decorative mirror on an adjacent wall to reflect every sliver of available light. While conventional decorating wisdom doesn’t recommend placing furniture in front of windows, in a small room such as a bedroom, it makes sense to use windows as the focal point and center furniture in front of them. In tiny bedrooms, options can be limited and it’s often better to create a strong focal point with a bed than to awkwardly push it to one side. Focal wall Light walls make small rooms feel larger, but there can be exceptions to this rule. An accent wall can bring definition and scale to a tiny space. The first step is to choose the right wall to paint. Depending on the room, it’s typically a fireplace wall, one that anchors a key piece of furniture, an interesting nook or a bookcase wall. Achieve sharp lines and professional

paint results easily with a high quality painter’s tape, such as FrogTape brand painter’s tape, which is treated with patented PaintBlock Technology that forms a micro-barrier against paint bleed. For drama, use darker shades to add depth to the room. However, keep furniture and adjacent walls lighter to

prevent the room from feeling cluttered. For medium color walls, a bright color or fun pattern on an accent wall will help enliven the space. Also, consider repainting trim a bright white to make the accent wall stand out. Smart shelving Shelves, cabinets and pegboard racks

Creative storage Choosing pieces with multiple functions is a must. Storage can also serve as décor. Visit garage sales and flea markets to find special pieces you can repurpose. An old trunk or suitcase can be a fashionable and functional side table or coffee table, while hiding odds and ends. Customize these gems to coordinate with your décor by adding a unique painted design using painter’s tape. For ideas, visit www.FrogTape.com. If you’re looking to preserve the item’s vintage appeal, make sure you tape off any latches or distinctive details to prevent paint bleed. Often, the best design solutions are born of necessity and, with a little imagination, you can create eye-catching, functional rooms throughout your house.

Preparing for severe weather this season As the weather begins to warm up, the likelihood for severe weather increases. Tornadoes, heavy rains and flash flooding all threaten to wreak havoc on homes and communities during spring and summer. Taking the time to prepare your family and home now will help ensure you are ready when the forecast calls for severe Jeff Schindler weather. 2015 HBA Create an PRESIDENT emergency supply kit Having an emergency supply kit ready and easily accessible will help you with any type of natural disaster. This kit will be important if you are in your home without

electricity or if you are forced to evacuate your home. Your kit should contain a three-day supply of bottled water and non-perishable food, a battery-operated radio, flashlights, batteries, a first-aid kit, family prescription medicines, pet supplies and important family documents. For more ideas on stocking your emergency supply kit, visit www.ready. gov. Develop a family communications plan Since your family may not all be together when an emergency occurs, it’s important for everyone to know your communication plan. Ready.gov recommends choosing one family member for everyone to contact. Make sure children know their parents’ cell phone numbers. It’s also helpful to send text messages, as they are more likely to go through than phone calls during an emergency. Parents should also know the emergency plans in place at their children’s day

care and schools. Your family should also have a meeting place if you are forced to evacuate your home. This includes a spot in your neighborhood and a place to meet if your neighborhood is evacuated. Weatherproof your home There are also a few steps you can take to protect your home against severe weather. • Clean out clogged gutters and downspouts. If the rain that accompanies a heavy storm can’t run through the gutters and downspouts, it will spill over the sides, landing in areas where it can soak through to your home’s foundation, causing flooding and structural damage. • Keep the elements out. Try to prevent wind and water from entering through windows, cracks, entry doors and garage doors. • Secure all doors. If you live in an area that frequently gets heavy storms,

consider installing steel entry doors. High winds can easily tear through double doors, French doors and sliding patio doors that have no structural support between the two sides. You may need to purchase and install special hardware to more adequately secure the doors where they meet. Try bolts that fasten the door into the framing at the top and the bottom. • Check your roof. A strong roof is another essential element in preparing your house to withstand a severe storm. Apply sealing around your home’s chimney or vent pipes. This will help prevent water from seeping into your home. Hire a contractor to check the structural integrity of the roof system. If your home is damaged due to a natural disaster, you can visit the HBA website at www.stlhba.com and click on the link “When Disaster Strikes.” The site has helpful tips and a list of members who specialize in storm repairs.

Temperature dial works only when it has the weight of the world on its shoulders Dear Car Talk: ”I have a 2000 Mercedes E320 with 144,000 miles. The temperature and clock dials on the dashboard stopped working after the warranty expired. I went to the Mercedes dealer and he said it was very costly to fix it. So for the past nine or 10 years, I had no temperature or clock dials. But when I shipped my car from Florida to New York and loaded my car with clothes and stuff, I noticed the temperature dial started to work after I picked up the car and there was some indication of time. But when I unloaded the car, the temperature dial worked for a few days, then stopped. Then when I shipped the car back to Florida Ray Magliozzi three months later, the temperature dial again worked when the car was loaded, but when unloaded, it stopped. Please give me some reasoning for why these things would work only when the car is loaded. What do you think is causing this? Many thanks for any help.” — Patricia Gee, I don’t remember exactly what your instrument cluster looks like. I know it has an engine temperature gauge, but I can’t remember the clock. Maybe the clock is a digital readout? In any case, I think what’s happening is when you put a lot of weight in the car, it’s changing the geometry and reconnecting a wire that’s broken. Most likely, it’s a tiny broken connection in the circuit board on the back of the instrument cluster. And your dealer was right. The instrument cluster would be expensive to replace. Unfortunately, if your engine temperature gauge isn’t working, you won’t know if your car is overheating and if you continue to drive it when it’s

overheating, you could turn a $20 hoseclamp problem into a $6,000 melted engine. So, while you’ve been fortunate for many years now, your luck might not hold out. Here are some options: You can look for a place that repairs these instrument clusters. There are people who know how to re-solder the connections that tend to break on these clusters. You can find them online. The cost is somewhere between $100 and $200, plus shipping and labor to remove and reinstall the cluster. And since you’ll need to send out your instrument cluster, you’ll need a repair shop that can help you. The dealer won’t want to be bothered with this, so you’ll have to look for an independent shop that specializes in Mercedes or German

cars (try searching at www.mechanicsfiles.com). Alternatively, you can ask your independent mechanic to help you find a used instrument cluster. The price will be about the same, but your car won’t have to sit for a week without an instrument cluster. Of course, a used one could have the same problem yours does, so you’ll need your mechanic’s guidance. And some luck. Then there’s the cheapskate solution — the one I’m sure my brother would have opted for: Just drive around with your clothes and stuff in your car all the time. The upside is, if you spill some pasta sauce on your shirt during lunch, you can just run out to the car to get a new one. Come to think of it, I’m going to start

doing this. If you buy a used car, will you just be inheriting the previous owner’s problem?

Growing pains Lilly Hiatt’s sophomore album has gotten both good and bad reviews — an eye-opening experience BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ / SPECIAL TO GO! MAGAZINE

You have to realize that, to even get a bad review, it means someone cares enough to get mad about this.” Perhaps the thing that some critics find vexing about “Royal Blue” is

Nadine’s reunion will be an emotional highlight at Twangfest BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ / SPECIAL TO GO! MAGAZINE

he reunion of Nadine — a St. Louis band that seemed on the verge of making it to the next level in the music business when it broke up more than a decade ago — already promised to be one of the emotional highlights of this year’s Twangfest. But the tragic death in April of bassist-vocalist Anne Tkach, who was still a fixture on the St. Louis scene as a member of bands including Rough Shop, Ransom Note and Magic City, cast a shadow over the longanticipated get-together. “There was just the sheer shock of it,” says Adam Reichmann, Nadine’s guitarist and vocalist. “Those of us who recorded with her and have been on the road with her — we’re feeling it. We were so looking forward to reconnecting with her.” Nadine — which, besides Reichmann, includes multi-instrumentalist Steve Rauner, guitarist Jimmy Griin and drummer Merv Schrock — decided to go ahead with the Twangfest date after being assured by

T

people close to Tkach that she would have wanted that. Todd Schnitzer, who played in an earlier edition of Nadine, will fill in on bass. Talk of a reunion first surfaced when Reichmann spoke to Twangfest organizers some months back. “We talked about doing it in another context, but it seemed like too big a rock to lift at the time,” Reichmann says. “But when the idea of doing it at Twangfest came up, the logistics fell into place.” Beginning in the late ’90s, Nadine produced four albums, starting with “Back to My Senses,” which was released on the European Glitterhouse label. The band joined with others to form the Undertow collective in St. Louis, working out of a “post-apocalyptic, Mad Max-style” warehouse downtown. On the Undertow label, Nadine released “Downtown, Saturday” and “Lit Up from the Inside.” The group signed with then-upand-coming label Trampoline for “Strange Seasons,” which was supposed to raise its profile considerably. But the efort fell short.

“I’ve answered the question of what went wrong a million diferent ways,” Reichmann says. “There were so many factors that went into it. Ultimately, like any artistic endeavor, a band needs a certain amount of momentum for it to feel sustainable. We were touring the West Coast, we were meeting the right kind of people, but people were sort of on their last legs with it emotionally. We just felt like we were out of gas.” Reichmann continued to pursue music and even played LouFest in 2010 with his band the Ghosts of Electricity. Griin, remains a constant presence onstage in St. Louis as a member of the Incurables, El Monstero, Celebration Day and others. And Reichmann, Rauner, Schnitzer and Matt Pence (another member of the Nadine family) also have an unusual project called the Longest Days, the concept for which is to record a single track per year and release it via Bandcamp. com on the summer solstice — thus the band name. “We’re one for one so far,” Reichmann says with a laugh. It’s unlikely that the Nadine reunion will last beyond Twangfest, but if it does, Reichmann says it won’t take another decade to make it happen. Getting back together full time, however, “doesn’t really make sense without Anne.

Via Dove

Up, up and away The Blender Rock band Via Dove is ending its run

on a positive note, with a farewell show at the Firebird

St. Louis rock band Via Dove ends its run with a farewell show Saturday night at the Firebird. “The Firebird feels like the right way to end it,” says singer-guitarist Andy Shadburne. Via Dove has performed there frequently, including multiple times at the annual An Under Cover Weekend. “We’re really going to celebrate,” he says. “We’ll dig deep into the catalog, play old tunes, new tunes, Under Cover Weekend faves. We want it to be a big party where we can say, ‘Hey, we had a good time.’ ” Shadburne says Via Dove players Aaron Vaught (guitar), Mike Marquard (bass), Reid Burnett (drums) and Michael Tomko (guitars) came to the decision collectively to end it. “We’re at a place where we’ve done what we want to do and set out to accomplish,” Shadburne says. “We all want to do other things.” He and his bandmates are all in their stltoday.com/blender

early 30s and are successful in other endeavors. He’s interested in various music projects, and ending Via Dove will create new opportunities for him. “We all started to look around and said, ‘OK, we’re not really doing much on the creative level now.’” Shadburne says. “Why was that? Because we were really busy doing other things that re@blenderpd

quired creativity. It was getting harder and harder to give it the time and attention we feel it deserves.” The group looked over what he describes as a “notoriously big catalog” of recorded, unreleased music, but there was nothing they were excited about developing. Also, two of the band members are expecting babies, which would have prompted a hiatus. “This is the right time to step away,” he says. “I will continue to play music. I love performing, and I love being onstage. With all the guys, at some point, music will be a part of their lives.” During its run that began in 2007, the band became a staple on the scene performing at the Firebird, Of Broadway, the Halo Bar, Red Sea, Cicero’s, the Ready Room, the Duck Room and Lucas School House. Shadburne describes the group’s music as a “rock ’n’ roll sound with progressive rock tendencies and indie-rock tendencies.” Via Dove has released two EPs, a studio album and a live album; the most recent EP was “Fugue State” (2014). “It was a cool record with some songs that were fairly old and some new songs in there, and well,” he says. “It was a career-spanning EP, if there is such a thing.” That the members of Via Dove remain friends and still communicate stands out for Shadburne; bands often don’t break up so peacefully. He also appreciates all the traveling and touring the group was able to do, including to South By Southwest in Austin, Texas. “When I moved to St. Louis I never dreamed I would be in a band,” he says. Shadburne is also lead singer (the Mick Jagger) of Street Fighting Band, a Rolling Stones tribute. That band will continue without him.

Thursday, the festival is an exercise in balance — between promoting Jewish filmmakers and films that illustrate the Jewish experience, between narrative features and documentaries. But above all, the festival aims to find films that can appeal to an audience both within and outside of the Jewish community. “We are looking for very high-quality films in a variety of criteria,” she says. “So we are looking for films from diferent countries of origin to kind of give us a universal acceptance.

ET MEYERS IS ETH ACE. IN A GOOD PLACE. ||| After being named host of NBC’s “Late Night” in May 2013, Meyers, 41, followed up by marrying his longtime girlfriend that September. ||| In February 2014, the former “Saturday Night Live” writer and “Weekend Update” anchor settled into the “Late Night” chair vacated when Jimmy Fallon moved up to “The Tonight Show.” Six months later, he dusted of his tuxedo to host the Emmy Awards. ||| Meyers’ “Late Night” regularly scores winning ratings for NBC, averaging more than 1.5 million viewers for the season. Perhaps even more importantly these days, he delivers viral buzz with stunts including the recent one in which he re-created David Letterman’s original “Late Night” opening as a tribute to his retiring predecessor.

But after 12 years behind and in front of the cameras on “SNL,” Meyers isn’t ready to settle into a nightly gig. He continues to take his standup act on the road, including a stop Friday at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis. “I try to get out one weekend a month,” Meyers said recently from his oice in New York. “I’m still trying to figure out the balance of work and life. But I do love performing onstage. I have a deep-seated fear that if I don’t keep doing it, I’ll forget how.” On this trip, he’ll perform only in St. Louis and Minneapolis. “Late Night” viewers will find his act the same, but diferent. “On the show, I open with the monologue, but here, I have a straight hour to talk without restrictions,” Meyers said. “I talk about everything from current events to my life. It’s a chance to expand on topics I might just get to touch on otherwise.” But “the best thing about it is that I don’t have to wear makeup,” Meyers said, joking that “you have no idea how much makeup I wear on the show. Onstage I spend the first BrowSe a chronology of 15 minutes just explaining that the inS and outS it’s really me, because people of late night stltoday.com/ might not recognize me.” tubetalk Meyers’ 12 seasons was the second-longest tenure on “Saturday Night Live,” after Darrell Hammond, and he credits the show as his major comic influence. “I grew up there,” he said.“I got to work with the funniest people on earth, and I learned from them.It’s impossible not to have been influenced.” Currently, though, another major

influence is his marriage to Alexi Ashe, a human rights lawyer. They had dated five years before their Sept. 1, 2013, wedding in Martha’s Vineyard. “Any comedian who gets married knows that it goes right into your act,” Meyers said. “My wife and I argue, and she can see me working out a joke.” Marriage comedy is universal, Meyers said. Luckily, “My wife has a busy life of her own, and she’ll be the first to tell you she doesn’t watch every show. If I’m sure she’s not going to be watching, I might be more inclined to put something about her in.” As a topical comic, Meyers is looking forward to all the fodder the upcoming presidential campaign will provide. “I’m excited, because it’s another subject that’s universal,” he said. “But I have to figure out at what point everyone is paying attention. I don’t think we’re all tuned in yet.” Any material from this new political season will have a lot to live up to, given that Meyers is credited with writing the instantly classic 2008 “Saturday Night Live” bits with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. “It was incredibly lucky,” Meyers said. “As a journalist or as a comedian, there’s great good fortune in being in the right place at the right time, and having an amazing talent like Tina.” Meyers is part of a new wave in late night, with Fallon replacing Jay Leno, James Corden stepping in for Craig Ferguson on CBS’ “Late Late Show” and Letterman departing, with Stephen Colbert set to take the “Late Show” helm this fall. Colbert has already been replaced by Larry Wilmore on Comedy Central, where Jon Stewart will leave “The Daily Show” in August. Trevor

Noah takes over there Sept. 28. Meyers appreciates the changing landscape, but he doesn’t have much time to admire it. “When you’re actively doing a late night show, you don’t sit down and watch late night shows,” he said. “I don’t watch my show, and I don’t often get to watch the others.” Nevertheless, he said, “I can’t imagine a better time for late night. So many are doing so well.” He finds that people don’t always

watch late night shows in late night. “On Twitter, I see people talking about the show at two times: while it’s on and then first thing in the morning. It makes sense to record one of these shows and watch in the morning, because the late night shows are modular. If you watched, say, an hour drama while getting ready for work, you would feel as if you had to watch the whole thing.” Meyers was born in Evanston, Ill., but grew up mainly in New Hampshire before graduating from Northwestern University. His formative years have made him a fan of Boston sports teams, including the Red Sox, but he hopes his St. Louis audience will bear him no ill will. “I’m very excited about performing at the Peabody,” he said. “Friends who have performed there told me how amazing it is, and I looked it up online. The restoration looks amazing.” Despite the widespread changes in late night, Meyers’ show remains one of the most traditional in format, with an opening monologue, a band (fronted by his old “SNL” pal Fred Armisen) and guests promoting their various projects. “I love writing, and a monologue is a great place to exercise the writing muscles,” Meyers said. “I wish I could sing or dance better, but because I can’t, I fall back on other things.” Above all, he said, “I want our show to be good at a lot of diferent things. I want it to be fun and to make people happy.” WHAT Seth Meyers • WHEN 8 p.m. Friday • WHERE

f the director’s name were Alan Smithee and not Paul Feig, no one would mistake “Spy” for anything other than a formulaic fiasco. But because Feig directed the estimable “Bridesmaids,” he’s been given enough rope to hang himself. Maybe, his apologists will say, he’s trying to prove that there’s room for stupid slapstick in the same tent as character-driven comedy. Maybe this is a meta-movie spoofing cliches about loose nukes stltoday.com/joesmovielounge

and government surveillance. And maybe star Melissa McCarthy is not the same one-note bufoon who inflicted “Tammy” on the public but rather the heir to Lucille Ball. Sure, and maybe bats will fly out of the ceiling of the CIA. Actually, that’s one of the few interesting things that happens in “Spy,” a cookie-cutter caper comedy that’s as dumb as the “Get Smart” movie. McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a mousy functionary in an under-

McCarthy, undercover in “Spy”

OUR MOVIE RATINGS ★ Skip it ★★ So-so ★★★ Good ★★★★ Excellent

Fine’s cover is blown, the only agent who understands the details about a black-market bomb is the untested Cooper. Over the objections of macho operative Rick Ford (Jason Statham), Cooper is dispatched to a series of European capitals to track down glamorous arms dealer Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne, amusingly bitchy). It’s a running gag that Cooper’s various secret identities are frumpy spinsters, yet that’s essentially what Cooper already is. Is it supposed to be a hilarious twist when an overweight, clumsy woman adds a wig and an “I Love Cats” T-shirt to her wardrobe? Granted, McCarthy is a funny woman, with an inventive mind and a physical grace that belies her heft. She’s a not-so-secret weapon waiting to be utilized. But Feig’s script is so underwritten that none of the comedy grows organically out of her character or the plot. When Cooper tracks Boyanov to Rome and infiltrates her gang, the mouse becomes a lioness, with kung-fu fury and a foul mouth. Cooper’s torrent of tough-gal obscenities is a hoot, but where was this fierce alter-ego when she couldn’t commandeer a scooter cooter without toppling over ver and saying “shucks”? Movies have been spoofing secret agents since the Bond-era “Our Man Flint,” and the parody genre peaked with the “Austin Powers” movies a generation ago. With the overlong, limp and lazy “Spy,” Feig has lost his mojo. WHAT “Spy” • RUN TIME 2:00 • RATING R • CONTENT

Jean and Carl Boenish in “Sunshine Superman”

Perrey Reeves and Jeremy Piven in “Entourage”

Showbiz fantasy ‘Entourage’ is soft around the edges ★★½ BY JOE WILLIAMS / FILM CRITIC

dictum in Screenwriting 101 is to write what you know, and what the scribes in Hollywood know best is Hollywood itself. Movies about movies usually get the backstage details right, because that’s where writers (and directors and producers) live. The gold standard of such movies is Robert Altman’s sly and cynical thriller “The Player,” which may have set a record for the number of celebrity cameos. But now “Entourage” has surely smashed that record. This supercharged version of the HBO series ofers the same accessories as the smallscreen model but is slowed by the same limitations. The driver of this vehicle is Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier, coasting through the role), the star of the blockbuster “Aquaman” and the straight-to-Blockbuster “Medellin.” Four years after the end of the

HBO series, Vince is on top of the world, celebrating with supermodels to mark the end of a nine-day marriage. Soaking up the spillage at the yacht party are Vince’s oldest friends, manager Eric (Kevin Connolly) and chaufeur-turnedtequila-mogul Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), as well as Vince’s woeful older brother, failed actor Johnny (Kevin Dillon). But if Vince is the driver of the plot, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) is the engine. Vince’s fiery former agent, Ari, is now the head of a major studio, where he greenlights a musical update of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” for Vince to direct and star in. When the unfinished movie goes over budget, Ari has to wheedle more money out of its principal investor, no-bull Texan Larsen McCredle (Billy Bob Thornton). But Larsen won’t fork over the dough unless his bratty son, Travis (Haley Joel Osment), gets to supervise

the production —and have his pick of the groupies. Travis decrees that Johnny’s small role in his brother’s film should be deleted, setting of a boardroom power struggle that allows Piven to chew the scenery. He’s the real star of the “Entourage” franchise, and the title characters pale by comparison. Of course, nobody watches “Entourage” for the emotions. Fans of the show want to see flashy cars, famous faces and hilltop pools filled with topless twenty-somethings. On that vicarious-pleasure level, the movie version delivers. Yet for anyone with a sense of irony or social justice, it’s also frustratingly soft around the edges, with no real sense of the drugs-and-violence underside of show business or the spiritual cost of failure. When getting fired means a $30 million buyout, that’s a Hollywood ending that leaves us little people in the dark. WHAT “Entourage” • RATING R • RUN TIME 1:44 • CONTENT

Daredevil films giant, dangerous leaps in ‘Sunshine Superman’ ★★★ BY STEPHANIE MERRY / THE WASHINGTON POST

riter-director Marah Strauch made a solid choice for the subject of her feature debut. Her riveting documentary “Sunshine Superman” follows the airborne career of Carl Boenish, who repeatedly hurled himself of clifs and buildings, pioneering what we now call base jumping. And because he was a cinematographer, Strauch also benefits from Boenish’s cache of phenomenal archival footage. Indeed, it was a love of photography, not a passion for adrenaline, that spurred Boenish to push the boundaries of what skydivers could accomplish. He got his start filming parachutists for John Frankenheimer’s 1969 drama “The Gypsy Moths,” and it wasn’t long before Boenish was coming up with other harebrained ways to film

W

humans in free fall. If people can safely parachute out of airplanes, he wondered, why not of clifs? So he gathered a team to leap from the top of El Capitan, a rock formation in Yosemite National Park. Decades before GoPros went mainstream, Boenish was equipping his daredevil buddies with multiple cameras so they could capture their heart-stopping journeys. And he took just as many risks to film them. From clifs, it was a short leap to buildings and bridges. Policemen and park rangers weren’t always thrilled with these adventures, but Boenish was less interested in the rules of man than the laws of science. The footage that Strauch pieces together is gorgeous and astonishing as men and women do their best hawk impersonations,

soaring above Earth in brightly colored 1970s-era jumpsuits. And the childlike Boenish is a joy to watch: He’s Peter Pan with boyish enthusiasm to spare. The story of how he met and married bookish, bespectacled Jean Boenish, the unlikeliest of base jumpers, is also an endearing tale of two opposites inexplicably but sweetly drawn together. Strauch has painstakingly constructed a celebration of this unique character, which makes the inevitably tragic finale all the more emotional. Even the reenactments, which are always a risky choice, feel necessary and look artfully done. “Sunshine Superman” might seem like a niche story, with its focus on stunts that most people wouldn’t dream of actually doing, but the documentary feels universal. It’s simply an examination of how one man fully embraced life while charting his own path. WHAT “Sunshine Superman” • RUN TIME 1:41 • RATING PG • CONTENT Some strong language

‘Love & Mercy’ follows Brian Wilson through the looking glass ★★★½ BY JOE WILLIAMS / FILM CRITIC

hey’re both called Brian Wilson, but in the bittersweet biopic “Love & Mercy,” Paul Dano and John Cusack are essentially playing two diferent people. The Brian Wilson of the mid-’60s was the producer and principal songwriter of the Beach Boys. With a little help from his friends, he transformed the sandcastle of surf music into a cathedral where acolytes like the Beatles worshiped. The Brian Wilson of the ’80s was a fallen angel with broken wings. With a lot of hooey from his fiendish shrink, he buried his head in the sand until a lovely lifeguard came to the rescue. The young Brian (Dano) is from a musical family in

T

suburban LA. His particular obsession is vocal harmony, which he learned by listening to Four Freshman records. Prodded by domineering father/manager Murray (Bill Camp), the three Wilson brothers, along with cousin Mike Love and friend Al Jardine, turned California culture into a global brand. (The opening-credits montage, like everything else in the film, is uncannily accurate about the artifacts of the era.) In 1965, Brian stops touring with the band to concentrate on songwriting and studio techniques that might rival those of his hero Phil Spector. When a friend gives Brian some LSD, it unleashes a tidal wave of creativity. Its purest expression is the album “Pet

Sounds,” which adds sound efects and spiritual yearning to the pop palette. But the album doesn’t sell well, and Love joins the jealous Murray in belittling Brian. Yet as we see in the documentary-style studio scenes with the hired musicians called the Wrecking Crew, Brian is jousting with the windmills in his own mind, and in the meticulous recording of “Good Vibrations,” he wins. Yet it’s essentially his last stand, as the sessions for the unfinished “Smile” album drive him mad. In the parallel narrative set 20 years later, Cusack plays the middle-aged Brian, who is virtually held prisoner by his live-in psychiatrist, Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti). Landy has helped Brian kick drugs and lose 100 pounds, but he has also separated the patient from his friends and made himself the beneficiary of Brian’s will. On an outing to buy a new car, Brian escapes his ever-present bodyguards by

motioning for saleswoman Melinda (Elizabeth Banks) to join him in a showroom Cadillac. Thus begins a furtive love afair, legal action against Landy and Brian’s ultimate resurrection. “Love & Mercy” is artfully but unobtrusively directed by Bill Pohlad. A film producer known for Oscar-winning films such as “Brokeback Mountain” and “12 Years a Slave,” Pohlad has surrounded himself with award-worthy talent on both sides of the camera, from music supervisor Atticus Ross to the art department to the stellar cast. Dano and Cusack are a study in contrasts, as the young Brian is a bruised Buddha with a beatific smile and the old Brian is a brain-damaged man-child tapping SOS on his piano. Where he’d be without Melinda’s love and mercy, God only knows. WHAT “Love & Mercy” • RUN TIME 2:00 • RATING PG-13 • CONTENT Thematic elements, drug content and language

prefer one to the other — if you’re the type to slurp a frozen paloma (Espalon Blanco tequila and house-made grapefruit soda, $7) or to tease out the smoky nuances of a margarita ($9) made with Del Maguey Vida Mexcal. That’s just one reason why Público joins the very, very short list of the most thrilling restaurants to open in St. Louis so far this decade. ✱✱✱✱✱

ou’ll never be bored following Mike Randolph’s career, a chef who often seems as restless as he is talented. Randolph made his first mark on the St. Louis scene six years ago with the Good Pie, his Neapolitan pizzeria in midtown. In 2011, he opened the breakfast and lunch restaurant Half & Half in Clayton. Then things got inPúblico’s tacos teresting. al pastor with In 2012,Randolph spit roasted opened Half & Half for pork shoulder, pineapple, dinner as MEDIAnoche, guajillo, crema serving modern Mexiand charred can cuisine.After eight onion salsa months,he closed MEDIAnoche and in its place opened Little Country Gentleman,a wildly ambitious restaurant where the grand tasting menu could number more than a dozen dishes and the high points were lofty enough to forgive the occasional confounding miss. Randolph ended the Little Country Gentleman experiment in January of last year. At the same time, he oversaw the Good Pie’s relocation to the Delmar Loop. When the new (and, in my estimation, improved) Good Pie opened, he also revealed that he was already working on his next project, Público, which debuted in March. We’re not done, though. Just last week, Randolph announced that he would close the Good Pie at the end of this month and transform it into Randolphi’s, serving a broader selec-

cake. Scattered over the plate, curled and twisted from the heat of their frying, are the sage leaves. It’s diicult, in the restaurant’s low light, to see the drizzle of maple syrup, but its presence is obvious from the first bite. The ofal-shy might start here. The butter mellows the liver’s strong flavor so that it doesn’t dominate the dish but instead, with the sage, becomes the necessary accent to the sweetness of the foursquare.com/gostl

syrup and the arepa itself. For all its edginess, this dish is as elemental as a hunk of great bread smeared with cultured butter and sprinkled with sea salt. Meanwhile, the guacamole arepas ($12) deliver everything that you think you want from a Mexican restaurant in one tidy dish. Two arepas, each bearing a generous scoop of brightly flavored guacamole, sit atop swirls of queso and a tomato and arbol-chile salsa. This isn’t a concession to popular tastes, but a clever realization that the joy of a conventional Tex-Mex or Mexican restaurant is the cumulative pleasure of those familiar flavors. Ordering both the Hidago and the guacamole arepas gives you a fuller picture of what Público is, but the restaurant is still appealing if you strictly

tion of rustic Italian cuisine. The news stunned the Good Pie’s fans, but Randolph was frank about the fact that the pizza-only menu wasn’t cutting it, financially, and he said Randolphi’s would still serve his wood-fired pizza. The news annoyed me only because we shouldn’t be talking about the Good Pie right now. We should be taking about Público. ✱✱✱✱✱

he banner draped outside Público — one of the very few jarring not-quite-finished touches here — describes it as “a wood-fired cantina,” which is as apt a description as any. The design by SPACE Architecture + Design emphasizes that cantina — or, if you like, gastropub — feel with dim lighting, blondwood tables and striking dark-wood fixtures that branch out from one wall. The bar dominates the single room, with tables in front and behind it and cushy booths to one side. At the back is the open kitchen, which includes a few seats for diners at the pass. The focal point of the kitchen is the oak-burning hearth and, next to it, the vertical spit, or trompo, where the pork shoulder for the tacos al pastor roasts. That trompo is a clear sign of Randolph’s serious intent here.And those tacos al pastor ($7.75 for two) are dynamite. The flavors are full and brilliant — sweet pineapple,earthy,spicy guajillo chiles and,of course,the pork itself — and the texture is a revelation.The spit-roasting gives each piece a definite char,while the hours spent basting in its own juices imbues it with velvety succulence. Yet Público isn’t really a Mexican or, more broadly, a Latin American restaurant, though the region is certainly its prime source of inspiration. Randolph’s approach is bold, borderless and flavor-forward. It’s as close in spirit as any St. Louis restaurant has come to the revolutionary approach that David Chang pioneered at his Mo-

mofuku restaurants in New York City. The Smoked Pollo tacos ($7.75 for two) owe as much to American barbecue joints as Mexican street vendors. The chicken is deeply smoky — some local spots could take lessons — and pickled red onions provide the perfect counterweight. And the Pescado Blanco tacos ($8.50) rif on lox and cream cheese, of all things. The pairing of smoked white fish with jalapeño cream cheese is inspired — and delicious. (Another sign of Randolph’s dedication: The tortillas for the tacos are made with Landrace Bolita corn imported Uruapan in the Mexican state of Michoacán. They are excellent.) Many of the dishes here are small plates,and if there’s any issue to Público’s approach,it’s that some of these work best as perfectly calibrated dishes, while others shine as sides.Err on the former side.So many of these dishes shine: grilled oysters ($8) encased in a Top A Higado arepa with lamb liver butter, fried sage and maple syrup Bottom The dining room at Público

sort of stuing of corn,bread and green chorizo; grilled sweetbreads ($8) finished in a pan with pineapples in a very spicy habanero chile sauce; incredibly tender baby octopus ($11.50) smoky from the grill and a liberal dose of paprika and then cooled with a verdant salsa Vera Cruz. The Cobia Caprese ($8) is a particularly smart reinvention of the classic salad, with cobia ceviche playing the mozzarella’s role (slightly squishy texture, relatively neutral flavor). The fish swims in a tomato broth spiked with serrano peppers and further brightened by basil and mint. Grits ($6.50) seem like an obvious side, but chorizo and red-eye gravy give it the punch of a bigger dish. Either the pinto beans ($4.50) larded with lamb drippings and sparked with mint and chive or the whole, small onions ($5) grilled in duck fat and dressed with a cilantro vinaigrette pair well with one of the few larger dishes, like a hanger steak ($18) basted in a lime-anchovy butter. The menu features two dishes meant to be shared: a whole grilled chicken and a whole grilled fish. The latter on my visit was a yellowtail snapper (market price $35), stufed with lemon, lime and jalapeño and topped with lettuce, salsa verde, crisp strips of fried tortilla and chicharrones made from fish skin. A stack of tortilla is served with the dish to make your own tacos, but I found myself skipping the middle step and pulling the fish directly of its bones. You might as well finish your meal with the outrageous Missouri rice pudding ($13) swirled with mango and topped with a classic foie gras torchon that has been frozen and then grated. The foie gras is no mere indulgence, though. It adds richness, of course, but it also adds complexity to the pudding’s sweetness. For $6, you can add this grated foie gras torchon to any dish. Or you can happily ignore that foie gras is available here at all. However you approach Público, you’ll find one St. Louis’ most talented chefs finally at home.

Christina Fitzgerald on “Food Network Star”

Cooking up stardom Tube Talk ‘Food Network Star’ competitor Christina

Fitzgerald wants to share her culinary views with America

P H O T O S : F O O D N E T W O R K ( F I T Z G E R A L D ) ; A S S O C I AT E D P R E S S ( A R M I S E N ) ; H B O (

BY GAIL PENNINGTON / TV CRITIC / GPENNINGTON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

Christina Fitzgerald’s 6-year-old daughter, London, got a kitchen set for Christmas and likes to imagine she has her own TV cooking show. Her mother has that dream, too, and she’ll take a step toward achieving it when she competes on the new season of “Food Network Star,” beginning Sunday. Fitzgerald, 29, of St. Louis, is one of 12 candidates to win a Food Network series, working to impress both mentors Bobby Flay and Giada de Laurentis stltoday.com/tubetalk

@gailpennington

and executives from the network with their kitchen skills and culinary points of view. When she was her daughter’s age, Fitzgerald says, “I watched cooking shows instead of cartoons.” After graduating from Christian Academy in 2004, she was encouraged by one of her six brothers to follow her passion for cooking. She enrolled in L’Ecole Culinaire, only to be shattered three days in by that brother’s death.“They asked if I wanted to re-enroll later, but I knew it would be better to keep busy, and I wound up finishing at the top of my class.” @tubetalkpd

Working at several local restaurants, including Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria and most recently Seven Stones Wine Garden in New Melle, where she was executive chef, Fitzgerald also enjoyed cooking competitions. While still at L’Ecole, she was part of the culinary competition team, participating in events hosted by the American Culinary Federation. “They are really tough,” she says. “There are very specific rules, and you’re judged in points. They measure your pie crust with a ruler and look at your food with a magnifying glass. You have to be perfect.” Last summer, Fitzgerald won the “Meat Me in St. Louis” category at the St. Louis World’s Fare festival in Forest Park. But those TV cooking shows she watched were always in the back of her mind. Her brother Chris Fitzgerald, a photographer who works with Mother Model Management in St. Louis, shot a video of her cooking and talking, and “it felt natural to me.” That video wound up getting to the right people at “Food Network Star” casting. “I was thrilled to get noticed,” Fitzgerald says. “I heard that 30,000 people applied for the 12 spots.” The season, the 11th, was shot in New York under heavy secrecy.“They didn’t tell us anything until the last minute,” Fitzgerald says.“They told us to block out eight to 10 weeks for the shooting, but we didn’t really know how long it would be. I had no idea what to expect.” One immediate surprise: “I didn’t realize how steep the competition was going to be,” Fitzgerald says. “The Food Network outdid itself and found an amazing group of people. We had the same skill set and the same dreams. I adored them.”

“If I want jokes, I’ll get myself a proper fool.” DANY DA (Emilia Clarke), unimpressed by Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), on “Game of Thrones”

Plus, “The staf was all so cool. The crew is all artists, working together. You have no idea how many people it takes to make the show.” Fitzgerald says she was disappointed that Alton Brown isn’t on the show this season. “I love him. He’s a total weirdo, like me.” She was thrilled, though, to see and work with Flay and de Laurentis. “It was crazy to see them. They’re living my dream.” Two things were especially tough for her, Fitzgerald says. One was having no contact with the outside world, including her husband, Michael, and daughter, for the duration of the competition. The contestants were even discouraged from talking among themselves. “This is reality TV, and they wanted to make sure all the emotion happened on film, so there was limited interactivity,” she says. “It felt like kindergarten, being told to stop talking.” Also tough was coming up with that “Food Network Star” necessity, a culinary POV. “I have tons of ideas for shows,” Fitzgerald says. “I’d love to travel the globe and do that show. I love all types of food. But my cooking style is really more bistro. I don’t want to be boxed in, but I was nervous about that.” Next up on the anxiety spectrum is watching herself on TV. Like most reality-TV competitors, “I’m a little concerned about how I’ll come of,” Fitzgerald says. “I know the power of editing. You make yourself vulnerable. If everyone is happy all the time, that’s boring.” WHAT “Food Network Star” • WHEN 8 p.m. Sunday • WHERE Food Network • MORE INFO foodnetwork.com/foodnetworkstar

The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 1♦ Pass 1♥ Pass 1♠ Pass *2♣ Pass 2NT Pass 3NT All pass *Fourth suit forcing Opening lead: Jack of ♥ “Fourth Suit Forcing” is a bid in the remaining suit after opener and responder have bid the other three suits. It has been used since the early days of bridge, when a forcing bid was needed and no natural forcing bid was available. In olden times, it was called a “temporizing bid,” or a “mark-time” bid. Today it is a staple of good bidding and there are clear-cut rules

that apply: 1) It creates a game force, 2) opener cannot bid no trump without a stopper in the fourth suit, and 3) opener must have four-card support to raise the fourth suit. North had a problem at his second turn. Three no trump seemed the most likely final contract, but it would be foolish to bid it with no club stopper. It was still possible for opener to have a distributional hand with long diamonds and short clubs. In order to gather more information, North bid two clubs, the fourth suit. Opener’s next bid clarified everything — he had a balanced hand with a club stopper. Three no trump it was, but from the side with a club stopper. The play was a snap. Declarer won the ace of hearts in dummy and ran the nine of spades, losing to the king. South won the heart continuation and repeated the proven spade finesse, claiming nine tricks without having to worry about the club suit. (06/05/15)

CROSSWORD

M 1 • FrIDAy • 06.05.2015

If June 5 is your birthday • This year you often project a more serious side of your personality. Understand the power that your words carry. Others prove to be extremely responsive to you, as you learn to mix diplomacy with efective communication. Higher education and travel could play a signiicant role in your year. Aquarius often involves you in a memorable adventure. ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You might want to take a stand in the morning, but getting your point across could be diicult. Others seem to be touchy. Later in the day, tap into your creativity and make what you need happen. You could be surprised how resistance melts. Tonight: Catch some zzz’s. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ You have a broader perspective than the majority of people. The reason for this is your ability to distance yourself from situations. You often gain insights into others when you do. You will want to spend a little on your home or on a family member. Tonight: Out late. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Deal with a partner as best you can. You will see a situation emerging that could cause a lot of tension in your life. A friend might be part of the problem. Be smart and detach from the issue quickly. Respond to someone else’s inquiry. Tonight: Be spontaneous. CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Investigate your options with care. How you see an evolving situation might not be accurate. Give yourself some time to mull this over. If you have a hankering to go out and spend a little on yourself, so be it. You will feel great. Tonight: Do not stay home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ You won’t allow someone to distract you right now. You could be exhausted by what is happening around you, as someone seems to sabotage your eforts. A friend or loved one will try hard to get you to return to your normal, outgoing self. Tonight: The Lion roars. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Tonight: Let the fun begin. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ You could be taken aback by what you hear from someone who is close to you. Rather than react, express your feelings. A partner might sound strange in his or her response, but a family member will come through with lying colors. Tonight: Invite a pal over for dinner. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ You could be taken aback by a change that is occurring with a inancial matter. Know when you have had enough of others interfering with your proitable ideas.

DEAR ABBY

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

Softhearted woman just can’t say no

Dear Pushover • The man you describe appears to be under

the impression that he can wear you down if he keeps at it long enough. He isn’t interested in being your “friend”; he wants to be your lover. Because you aren’t interested in him that way, quit allowing him to sleep at your place. If he becomes so drunk he can’t drive himself home, get him a taxi. Allowing him to sleep over and weasel himself into your bed sends him a mixed message, and that’s a mistake. What you appear to need to work on is the ability to say no. Try it. You’ll like it. Dear Abby • I’m having a hard time with my dad. He treats me like a little kid and refuses to recognize that I’m an adult who can make my own decisions. Abby, I am 40. I haven’t lived at home for more than 20 years. I’m married with kids and hold a responsible job, but he still sees me as a little girl. It has always been this way with him. I have tried talking to him about it, but all he does is roll

his eyes like I’m a teenager. Dad is in his late 60s and I’d really like to have a relationship with him while he is still alive and healthy. Is there anything I can do to make him understand his perspective is skewed and he needs to change his behavior? — Daddy’s Girl Dear Daddy’s Girl • At his age, you aren’t going to change your father. Your chances of improving your relationship with him will be better if you change the way you react to what he’s doing, and realize he says the things he does because it’s part of what he thinks is a parent’s job. Once you see the humor in it, you’ll stop feeling defensive and resenting him. Trust me, it will go a long way toward your having the adult relationship with him that you crave. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Diferences: 1. Apron is shorter. 2. Leg is moved. 3. Arm is moved. 4. Clothespin is larger. 5. Bush is moved. 6. Woman is thinner.

Dear Abby • I am 32 and need advice on setting personal boundaries in my relationships. Simply put, I have a guy friend who has feelings for me that I don’t have for him. We dated briefly. I broke it of, and we have continued as friends for two years. He knows I’m not interested in an intimate relationship with him. However, he has made it clear through words and behavior that he’s in love with me, almost to the point of obsession. I feel he doesn’t respect my personal space. We argue — especially if he ends up crashing at my house after a night at the pub. I firmly tell him he can only sleep on my couch, but he’ll weasel his way into my bed. I feel I’m enabling him in his clingy behavior because I don’t want to hurt his feelings. I want to stop being so passive, especially with men. Please advise me how to work on this. — Pushover in Vancouver, Canada

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Provocative remark requires restraint

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

Dear Miss Manners • I am curious to find out what would be the most acceptable and polite answer in this situation: A man (stranger) feels that a woman’s dress is indecent and comes up to this woman inside a venue to tell her directly that she needs a change of clothes. Because they haven’t met before, how should she respond? Gentle Reader • If you intend to be the critic in this situation, Miss Manners can assure you that the response will not be one of gratitude or contrition. It may even require a towel if the lady in question is holding a full glass. She urges you to rethink your plans. If you are, instead, what can reasonably be termed the victim, she asks only for restraint — while acknowledging that the behavior is a gross insult, which does not require a nuanced response. After a “Thank you for your opinion,” the lady should walk away.

Dear Miss Manners • Two days after my town lost three teenagers to a car accident, a community member began selling memorial T-shirts that were donated by a local family. All proceeds are to be given to the families to help with final expenses. On the front of the T-shirt is an “inspirational” message, and the back has the names of the three children with their birth dates and the date of the accident. I think their hearts are in the right places but, to me, it seems to trivialize and cheapen the memories of these children. When I suggested that perhaps donations should be sought in order to provide a more lasting tribute than a T-shirt, I was accused of “starting drama.” I suggested that a tree planting with a small plaque or a small monument at the school the three children attended would be more lasting, and was surprised

by the nasty responses I received. Miss Manners, I don’t want to further hurt an already grieving community, but am I wrong in thinking that a “T-shirt memorial” is cheap and tasteless? Gentle Reader • Funeral etiquette recognizes a hierarchy of grief, and while your community may be grieving for the loss, Miss Manners reminds you that it is the feelings of the principal mourners — the immediate families — that take precedence. How would you, as a mother, feel watching others argue over the tastefulness — or tastelessness — of the arrangements? Send questions to Miss Manners, aka Judith Martin, on her website, missmanners.com; to her email, dearmissmanners@gmail.com; or through postal mail to Miss Manners, Universal Uclick, 1130 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Mo. 64106. Miss Manners’ son, Nicholas Ivor Martin, and her daughter, Jacobina Martin, contribute to this column.

Diet based on plants is right for many FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk Dear Dr. Roach • I had a heart attack a year ago. My wife and other people have told me that I can eat anything I want, as long as I eat in moderation. What do you say? — C.F.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • It depends on what you mean by “moderation.” I would recommend a diet based mostly on plants, with the option of adding whole grains, fish, nuts, fruits and lean meat sources, such as skinless chicken. I would urge moderation (in this case, I mean eaten very rarely) for less-healthy food choices, such as highly processed foods and those with high sugar content. I would recommend zero intake of trans-saturated fats (which, fortunately, are leaving the food supply, though not quickly enough). The data on red meat remain mixed, but the preponderance of data shows that commercial red meat should be consumed sparingly (no more than two servings per week appears to confer the lowest risk for heart disease). This is the diet I recommend for most people for overall health, but after a heart attack or the diagnosis of blockages in the arteries of the heart or brain even without a heart attack or stroke, this diet is likely to reduce risk of further events.

Dear Dr. Roach • A local radio station relentlessly advertises bee pollen as an amazing dietary supplement. Are there benefits to taking bee pollen? — R.G.L.

MARMADUKE • By Brad Anderson

Answer • Although I generally am skeptical of products claiming “amazing” health benefits, I always approach the research with an open mind. As Isaac Asimov said: “I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.” In the case of bee pollen, the evidence is scanty. Bee pollen contains many diferent nutrients, including a long list of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and other nutrients like flavonoids. However, because of the nature of pollen, some bee pollens are not easily digested by humans unless a mechanical or chemical process is used to remove the protective coatings of the pollen. Bee pollen can have adverse effects. There are several documented cases of severe allergy and rare reports of kidney and liver damage. Unfortunately, there isn’t good evidence for benefit from bee pollen.
