Hundreds of traffic tickets dismissed over trooper conduct BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • City prosecutors are blaming “questionable” and “unacceptable” conduct of one Missouri state trooper for the dismissal of hundreds of traffic tickets and about 30 felony and misdemeanor cases in the city, officials say. Chris Hinckley, chief warrant officer for the circuit attorney’s office, recently emailed a letter to the Missouri Highway Patrol saying the office had dismissed some cases and refused to file charges in others after Trooper Michael L. Crutcher’s conduct during traffic stops caught See TICKETS • Page A5

The figures show that 1,995 minors were separated from 1,940 adults from April 19 through May 31. The separations were not broken down by age and included separations for illegal entry, immigration violations or possible criminal

JOE’S ST. LOUIS

Heavy lifting hoists Belleville man to a third-place finish in Calgary JOE HOLLEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

HEAVY LIFTING • Need a ride, call a taxi. Need a lift, find Chris Thacker. A Clinton County native who now lives in Belleville, Thacker finished third in his division at the 2018 World Classic Powerlifting Championships held last weekend in Calgary. Thacker, 40, competed in the 40-49 age group, 205-231 weight class. He and his brother, Justin Thacker, operate The Lab gym at 5035 Manchester Avenue in southwest St. Louis. For the uninitiated, powerlifting involves three lifts: bench press, squat and deadlift. Thacker’s poundage for each lift was 424, 584 and 584. His overall total earned him a third-place medal. He qualified for the international event by winning his age/weight group at the USA Powerlifting National Championships in October. Thacker has been powerlifting seriously for only six years, but said he now relishes the opportunity and respects the sport. “The (lifting) community that surrounds us is unlike any other sport I have been involved in,” Thacker said. “Each individual pushes to achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves and we all support one another.” HEAVY MEDAL • What a bargain we could’ve had on a gold medal from the 1904 Summer Olympics held in St. Louis. On Thursday, Christie’s New York auctioned off one of the first Olympic gold medals ever awarded for basketball — at the low, low price of $125,000. Auction experts had projected that the 14-karat gold medal could go for as much as $200,000. The medal that was sold about 3:30 p.m. had once belonged to George Louis Redlein of the Buffalo Germans. After the games, he went on to play basketball at Syracuse University. Basketball was a demonstration sport during the St. Louis games and the medal competition featured just six teams, all from the United States. Two squads were from St. Louis: the Missouri Athletic Club and the Central YMCA teams.

ST. LOUIS • A woman who accused a

former St. Louis police officer of forcing her into a sex act while she was pregnant and he was on duty in 2015 has filed a civil lawsuit against the officer. The woman, whom the Post-Dispatch is not identifying because of her sex abuse claim, filed the civil suit Wednesday in St. Louis Circuit Court, accusing the officer of vio- Stewart lating her constitutional rights by holding her captive, causing her physical and emotional trauma, fear, depression and anxiety. The suit seeks unspecified damages. The former officer named in the lawsuit, John Stewart, 52, of O’Fallon, Mo., is awaiting trial on a charge of first-degree sodomy or attempted sodomy. Charges said the woman had originally called police because her car had been stolen by her estranged husband on June 12, 2015,

Gottis feted Travolta, Preston

John Travolta and Kelly Preston didn’t just receive the Gotti family’s blessing to make a biopic about the late, infamous crime boss, they also were fed well, in true Italian style. “Victoria Gotti made us a gorgeous spread one afternoon. It was awesome,” recalled Travolta at the film’s premiere Thursday. “We’ve had quite a few meals. Quite a few great Italian meals,” added Preston, who plays Gotti’s wife, Victoria. “Victoria cooked us dinner, an amazing dinner in the same house that she and John lived in for many years, and the family was in and out and we spent all day long together and it was wonderful and then we’ve had other meals together.” John Gotti, who died in prison in 2002, was head of the Gambino crime family and was convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992. “Gotti” opened in the U.S. on Friday. Senator’s neighbor gets prison for assault • Sen. Rand Paul‘s neighbor has been sentenced to 30 days in prison for tackling the lawmaker while he was out doing yard work at his Kentucky home. Rene Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress. Paul suffered broken ribs. Boucher said he was triggered by Paul stacking debris near their property line in Bowling Green, Ky. Paul says in a statement that the 21-month sentence sought by prosecutors “would have been the appropriate punishment.” U.S. District Judge Marianne Battani called November’s attack a “dispute between neighbors” and an “isolated incident,” not motivated by politics. Boucher also must serve a year of supervised release, stay away from the Paul family and pay a $10,000 fine. They remain next-door neighbors.

HEAVY TRAVEL • Few things are more anticipated by a teen than getting a driver’s license. Then, at least in Missouri, it’s all downhill from there. The Show-Me sector of the U.S. ranked as the fourth-worst state (No. 47) in the nation for teen drivers, according to personal finance website WalletHub. Looking at three main categories, Missouri scored lower than all states except Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming. Our worst category, No. 49, involved driving laws, which took into account leniency for driving while intoxicated and the strictness (or lack thereof) of laws against texting while driving.

The best showing was in the area of economic environment, No. 27, which weighed financial factors such as costs of traffic tickets, insurance and vehicle repairs. The state finished at No. 47 when it came to safety, which blended quality of roads, seat belt use and number of accidents into a rating. Illinois scored well in the rankings, finishing at No. 4. As for our other neighbor states, Tennessee and Kansas finished at Nos. 20 and 21, respectively; Kentucky at No. 23; Iowa at No. 34; Arkansas at No. 36; Oklahoma at No. 38, and Nebraska at No. 46. The three best states for teen drivers were New York, Washington and Maryland. Joe Holleman • 314-340-8254 @stlsherpa on Twitter jholleman@post-dispatch.com

Woman files suit against ex-officer charged with sexual assault BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

PEOPLE

in the 3600 block of Kosciusko Street. The woman was 25 at the time and was six months pregnant. Stewart’s lawyer could not be reached for comment Friday. Stewart responded in uniform and in a marked police car, charges said. She alleged that she and Stewart discussed her stolen car while he was standing outside the doorway to her apartment. The lawsuit filed Wednesday says the officer entered the woman’s home, and “rather than asking questions about the situation and making a report, asked (her), ‘Are you freaky?’” “Officer Stewart made the demand for oral sex in a nonchalant and callous way, such that (the woman) believed this was something Officer Stewart did on a regular basis with distraught victims,” the lawsuit said. Criminal charges said Stewart also complimented her appearance, and then exposed himself to her. She said she was already “in a state of obvious fear because of the theft of the family vehicle.” “Furthermore, she was, as an African-

American female, frightened to be in the presence of a white male officer brazenly demanding that she perform sexual acts on him while her four children slept in a bedroom just a few feet away,” the lawsuit said. The woman said she preserved some of the evidence following the alleged assault, and the crime lab later confirmed the presence of Stewart’s DNA on a garment and a cup. Sources confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that Stewart resigned from the police department less than a week after allegations of inappropriate sexual contact surfaced, so an internal affairs investigation was never completed. A department spokeswoman said Stewart was on the force from Jan. 3, 1989, to June 13, 2015. Former Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce’s office declined to issue criminal charges against Stewart. Current Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office filed the criminal case on Jan. 31. Christine Byers • 314-340-8087 @christinedbyers on Twitter cbyers@post-dispatch.com

1 deputy killed, another Post about revived driver who leaves strikes nerve is wounded in Kansas

“We are known to help people and that’s what we do,” he said. “They can sign a release refusing care just like anyone else.” Mosby also noted that once Narcan is in a person’s system it can act as a blocker to prevent a person from getting high on drugs for a while, but that varies from person to person. “We can’t detain because of an overdose,” he said. St. Louis Police Sgt. Keith Barrett said that he did not see in his department’s call log system that police were ever summoned to the scene described in Connor’s Facebook post. “That may have been because the information provided to the 911 operator was descriptive of a sick case, which would have been determined that EMS was needed,” Barrett said. He said that in some circumstances, a person who is revived after an overdose could be taken into custody. “If police are on the scene and medical attention is administered to preserve life and, once revived, if there is evidence of narcotics and paraphernalia present, the person is subject to arrest according to a violation of the Missouri Controlled Substance laws,” Barrett said. Connor said he had no way of knowing whether it was a dispatching error that officers were not sent to the scene. But if it is standard practice that officers are not sent by dispatchers to overdose scenes involving drivers, Connor said he thinks the city should re-evaluate its protocols. He also found it concerning that the paramedics who treated the man did not summon officers. “I think they have a professional responsibility to call police,” he said. He said his Facebook post had been shared so much by Friday evening that he was getting responses from across the country. He says it seemed to have tapped a nerve in a nation seeing widespread opioid overdoses. “I hope it changes something,” he said of his post. “It’s an epidemic and something needs to get done about it.”

DIGEST ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Ritenour board lowers deficit in new budget • Ritenour School District’s new budget of $69.9 million will cut the annual deficit by more than half, to $1.7 million, because of a property tax increase that is expected to add $2.1 million. But the continued drop in total reserves prompted longtime board member Ruth Bell Greco to oppose the new budget plan on Thursday night. “To continue to deficit-spend is irresponsible,” she said. The budget passed 5-1. The deficit was $3.8 million in 2017-18, when the spending plan was also $69.9 million. Teacher salary raises in the new budget are offset by some operating reductions and retirements. Voters approved a 39-cent property tax increase last November; it was the first since 2005 and the largest since 1998. The tax rate for 2018 will be $5.75. District teachers in May strongly supported a two-year contract that provided 1.6 percent wage hikes in 2018-19 and 1.4 percent in 2019-20. The increases are below those of prior years. The salary range for the next school year will be $41,113 to $87,869. JEFFERSON CITY > Governor won’t block followers on social media • Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will no longer block users on

his social media accounts as he did when he served as lieutenant governor, according to the new governor’s staff. Parson and former Gov. Eric Greitens were the only Missouri statewide officials who regularly blocked critics and others on their social media accounts, drawing criticism from free speech advocates. “Official social media pages, maintained by government employees, are a public forum,” said Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri. “Blocking or banning constituents because of their viewpoint would violate the First Amendment.” Since Parson became governor June 1, when Greitens resigned, his staff has created new official accounts, The Kansas City Star reported. Parson’s personal and campaign accounts on Twitter and Facebook will abide by whatever policy is eventually established and will unblock anyone who was previously blocked, his communications director, Steele Shippy, said. “We are working to restore and build trust in the governor’s office,” he said in a statement to the Star. “We’re opening the doors of the office and ensuring every Missourian has the opportunity to share their opinions freely.” From correspondent and wire reports

ST. LOUIS > New charges filed against man who pleaded guilty to harassment • A man accused of texting an Arnold woman saying he wanted to rape her was charged Friday in St. Louis with texting sexually violent threats to another woman. Robert Merkle, 49, of the 1100 block of Jamunda Walk in south St. Louis County, pleaded guilty Friday in Jefferson County Circuit Court to a felony count of harassment. Charges said Merkle that after he met the Arnold woman, he began calling and sending her violent and sexual text messages in which he expressed his desire to rape her. Sentencing is set for June 22 in that case. Also on Friday, Merkle was charged in St. Louis Circuit Court with the same crime involving a different woman. Authorities say Merkle came to a “Meetup” group Sept. 14 in the 5400 block of Arsenal Street. After meeting a woman there, charges say he sent her “threatening messages of sexual nature via platforms on the internet.” Merkle also has three pending

ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Three charged in attack on MetroLink • Three St. Louis men have been charged in an attack on a MetroLink rider that was recorded on surveillance video, St. Louis County Police said Friday. The attack by six men happened Monday on a westbound train between St. Charles Rock Road and the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus. Police said they have three suspects in Swanigan custody and are attempting to identify the others. Jahma A. Swanigan, 23, of the 3000 block of Victor Street; Jody Dale, 23, of the 1000 block of Walsh Street; and Eddie Maurice Price, 31, of the 1400 block of Dale Hickory Lane, are charged with assault. Price is being held in lieu of $150,000 bail; Swanigan in lieu of $75,000 bail; and Dale in lieu of $100,000 bail. All three repeatedly struck the rider with their knees and Price punched and slammed him to the floor of a train car about 4 p.m. Monday, court documents allege. When the train reached the UMSL South station, the men fled.

a room occupied by two patients on May 31, 2016. Prosecutors said she used a lighter to set some clothing alight. Jones was aware that both patients were “bedridden and unable to communicate verbally,” her plea says. No motive for the arson was given, other than it was malicious. The mandatory minimum for the crime was five years in prison. The fire at the Cahokia Nursing and Rehab Center, at 2 Annable Circle, forced evacuation of more than 100 residents. Prosecutors said firefighters and employees were able to get them out without serious injuries.

The victim suffered an orbital bone fracture and other facial fractures and other injuries, documents say.

EAST ST. LOUIS > Former official at air base gets probation in fraud case • A former official at Scott Air Force Base was sentenced Friday to two years of probation for providing inside information on potential government contracts. James Gillis, 60, of Maryville, pleaded guilty to government procurement fraud in December. Gillis was the chief of project management for the 375th Civil Engineering Squadron, prosecutors said. Gillis disclosed confidential information to potential contractors so they would be more likely to win the work, his plea agreement says. He received lunch and baseball tickets in return, prosecutors said.

Charges say he described his violent sexual fantasies in the texts. Merkle has at least six protection orders against him in St. Louis and St. Louis County. Online jail records indicate Merkle remains jailed in Jefferson County. Bail on the new counts in St. Louis was set at $7,500 cash.

powered two sheriff’s deputies while being transported to a Kansas City courthouse on Friday, resulting in a shooting that killed one deputy and critically wounded the other, authorities said. The suspect was also shot during the confrontation in a gated area near the Wyandotte County Courthouse in Kansas City, Kan. Investigators said the inmate may have grabbed a weapon from one of the deputies during a struggle after he got out of a van transporting him late Friday morning. “It is very possible that with their own firearm, they were both shot,” sheriff’s Maj. Kelli Bailiff said during a news conference at the University of Kansas Hospital. The slain deputy was identified as Patrick Rohrer, 35, who had been with the department for seven years. The wounded deputy and the suspect were undergoing surgeries Friday afternoon. No other information had been released about the deputy or suspect. Bailiff said the inmate was being taken across the street from the jail, to the services building, for a court hearing. The inmate was taken in a van to a gated area behind the building, and when he got out of the van, he somehow overtook and shot the deputies, Bailiff said. Authorities said it was too early in the investigation to publicly detail how the

KANSAS CITY, KAN. • An inmate over-

shootings could have happened. Investigators will be reviewing surveillance video, according to Kansas City Police Department spokesman Zac Blair. The department is leading the investigation. Video from the scene showed the courthouse surrounded by yellow police tape, several police vehicles parked in the street and numerous uniformed law enforcement officers walking the grounds. Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer was briefed on the shooting as he arrived at Children’s Mercy Park for a congressional forum hosted by the Kansas City, Kan., Chamber of Commerce, The Kansas City Star reported. He offered a moment of silence for the deputies after he finished his speech at the event. He said law enforcement officers were doing their jobs and investigating even as they dealt with violence against two of their own. He noted that the county and the city have dealt with other officer shootings in the recent past. Two Kansas City officers were shot and killed within less than three months in 2016. Capt. Robert Melton was slain in July while searching for a suspect in a driveby shooting. Melton was part of the police honor guard for Detective Brad Lancaster, who was fatally shot earlier in 2016 near the Kansas Speedway. In 2015, Wyandotte County Deputy Scott Wood was shot seven times but survived.

Evidence markers dot the pavement outside the Wyandotte County Courthouse Friday in Kansas City, Kan. A deputy was killed, another critically wounded and a suspect was shot.

A Facebook post showing a driver apparently passed out behind the wheel with a syringe in his hand in St. Louis was being widely shared Friday — and prompting intense debate about whether the driver should have been allowed back on the road after being revived. The public online post by Chris Connor, a tractor-trailer driver who lives in Highland, had been shared more than 4,000 times within seven hours of going up about 1 p.m. Friday. In his post, Connor says he snapped the shot of the motorist as the man was unconscious in his car and blocking the ramp to eastbound Interstate 44 from Arsenal Street. “I jumped out and see a needle in his lap,” Connor said. “He’s obviously overdosing.” Connor said he called 911 and first responders from the St. Louis Fire Department arrived. He said the anti-overdose medication Narcan was administered and the driver came to. “He wakes up and two minutes later they let him drive away,” Connor said. “No cops showed up — nothing. So now he can go down the street and take another shot and kill an innocent person with his vehicle.” In an interview Friday evening, Connor said he was in “complete shock” that police were not sent to the scene and that the driver hopped onto eastbound I-44 within minutes of being revived. Many of the dozens of people who added comments to Connor’s post expressed similar outrage. St. Louis Fire Department Capt. Garon Mosby said in an interview Friday afternoon that firefighters do not have arrest powers. In overdose cases, once a person is revived, and if they are coherent and can communicate, they have the right to refuse medical care, Mosby said. “We encourage them to go to the hospital,” he said. “They can refuse transport. It happens with overdoses. We know that it is a controversial topic.” Mosby said the job of his department is to help save lives.


A4 • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH SCHOENDIENST • FROM A1

“I assure you that will never be equaled,” DeWitt told some 1,200 who attended the Mass. But DeWitt and the other speakers offered testament to the Schoendienst who didn’t have a glove or bat in his hand. Talking both of Schoendienst and late Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial, whose funeral Mass was held in the same church 5½ years ago, DeWitt said the two were “giants in the St. Louis community and gave of themselves in numerous civic endeavors and were universally admired throughout the baseball world.” Virtually the entire Cardinals current team and front office were in attendance, as well as the franchise’s seven living Hall of Famers — Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith, Bruce Sutter, Whitey Herzog, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre. Also, many fan favorites of past years were in the pews, including Cardinals Hall of Famers Jim Edmonds, Ted Simmons and Willie McGee, as well as John Tudor, Tom Lawless, Dave LaPoint, Glenn Brummer, Brad Thompson, Jason Isringhausen, Ken Dayley, Rick Horton, John Costello, Ken Reitz, Mike Tyson, Ted Sizemore, Al Hrabosky, Ted Savage, former trainer Gene Gieselmann and Carole Buck, widow of Hall of Fame announcer Jack Buck. Former general manager Walt Jocketty, now with Cincinnati, and former big-league trainer Barry Weinberg, who still works on the minor league side, were on hand, as well as former coach Joe Pettini. Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson, before delivering his remarks, had talked to all the Cardinals’ Hall of Famers about Schoendienst. “The Baseball Hall of Fame embraces the qualities of character, integrity and sportsmanship and there’s nobody who embodied those more so than Red Schoendienst,” said Idelson. Citing what he had gleaned from the Magnificent Seven, Idelson said the consensus was that Albert Fred Schoendienst was “one of the kindest people ever to walk the face of the earth.” Idelson said Schoendienst, indeed, had circled the bases, when he gave his Hall of Fame acceptance speech in 1989 at Cooperstown, N.Y. “First base was growing up in Germantown (Illinois),” said Idelson. “Second base was when he became a major league player. Third base came in 1947 (actually, 1945) when he met a dark-haired Irish girl on a Grand Avenue streetcar and she asked him for his autograph. As Red said, ‘Two years later, I signed her up.’” Red and Mary Eileen O’Reilly Schoendienst were married for more than 50 years until her death in 1999. “Red completed his trip around the bases and crossed home plate when he was elected to the Hall of Fame,” said Idelson. To Schoendienst, whose recorded telephone message was, “This is the old Redbird,” Idelson said, “Rest in peace, old Redbird. Cooperstown and the entire baseball world mourn the loss of a gentleman, a teacher, a friend and an icon.” Torre noted that after he was traded to the Cardinals by Atlanta in 1970, manager Schoendienst thought Torre could use a subtle change in his hitting approach, offering it with just a few words. Torre, demonstrating at a luncheon reception after the Mass how he used to hold his hands high, said Schoendienst asked him at the batting cage, “How long can you hold that stance?” “I don’t know,” said Torre. Schoendienst motioned for Torre to drop his hands closer to his waist. “How about here? How long can you hold that?” he said. “It’s more comfortable, isn’t it?” “And I hit .325 and .363 the next two years,” Torre said. Later, Schoendienst would be a coach on Torre’s staff and then an adviser, and, in fact, preceded Torre as manager when Red served as interim manager following Herzog’s resignation in 1990. “He was always there, but he was never intrusive,” said Torre. Schoendienst, in fact, was so unobtrusive that when he took over as interim manager twice for Herzog — in 1980 and 1990 — he refused to use the manager’s office, which had been his for 12 years, and instead conducted his interviews in the coaches’ office. “But, Red, you’re the manager,” a reporter told him. “I’m a coach,” said Schoendienst, “who happens to be managing.” Torre recalled that when he

If he didn’t like what he saw, he let you know about it.” Hrabosky said, “He just treated you like a man. And maybe that helps to explain some of the frustration I had with Vern Rapp (who succeeded Schoendienst and was involved in a suspension of Hrabosky). “The playing days speak for themselves, the managerial days are something else. But to just know him as a person, then you really find out how much Hall of Fame material he really is,” said Hrabosky. “He’s in that baseball Hall of Fame but he’s in the Hall of Fame of men, too.” Schoendienst took the 1967 and 1968 Cardinals to the World Series but then the club didn’t win another title in his next eight years as manager as the team got younger and younger and, in many areas, less proficient. One of the young players who panned out, though, was a 20-year-old catcher, who ultimately became the Cardinals’ regular catcher for the 1970s. “He gave me my first opportunity to play,” said Simmons, “and I was so young at the time and, frankly, unskilled, at the time, it took a great deal of patience and indulgence for him to keep putting me out there. “To come up (from the minors) and expect to catch at 20, it’s like being thrown to the wolves,” Simmons said, “and Red knew that. He knew what the problems would be. And he endured it. “He could have put up a big fight like many managers at the major league level who had his level of prestige and said, ‘I’m not going to live with this.’ “He knew what his role was. He knew what his responsibility was and that was to make a major league catcher out of me – which he eventually did.” Mike Shannon, the voice of the Cardinals who also played for Schoendienst in the 1960s, spoke at the Mass of Schoendienst following the Golden Rule, treating everyone with respect. “Fair, forgiving, generous, gracious, joyful, kind, loving, loyal, optimistic, passionate, reliable, respectful, sincere, caring, compassionate, confident, courageous, determined, ethical, authentic, beautiful, assertive, trusting and wise,” said Shannon, ticking off the virtues. Then, extending Schoendienst’s impact to the ultimate, Shannon told a joke about the Pope knocking at St. Peter’s gate in heaven and hoping for admittance. The Pope was told that God was not there and no one could enter without his consent. “The next thing you know, here comes Red Schoendienst, and he walks right in,” said Shannon. “The Pope went up to St. Peter and said, ‘I just saw Red Schoendienst walk in.’ St. Peter said, ‘Nah, that’s not Red Schoendienst. That’s God. He just thinks he’s Red.’” The Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, archbishop of St. Louis, who celebrated the Mass, cited the title of a book written by Jim Grassi, and said, “(Red) finished strong. He finished well.” Colleen Schoendienst talked about her father’s simple early years when Schoendienst’s mother made baseballs made of sawdust sewn with rags and Schoendienst and his brothers would make balls by winding twine around hickory nuts. “Fame never changed him,” said Colleen Schoendienst. “And he never sugar-coated anything. When Dad talked, people listened. “His success in life was that ... he treated everyone as he wanted to be treated. “Dad,” said Colleen Schoendienst, “you are the best.” On the day before he died, Red wanted to get out of the house and go to his favorite duck hunting club, Blind Luck, near O’Fallon, Mo. “He just loved taking drives in the country,” said grandson James Schwetye, who along with his brother, Henry, put Schoendienst in the car and drove him to Blind Luck, where some of Schoendienst’s hunting cronies were waiting. Schoendienst had a couple of Budweisers, his drink of choice ever since he was old enough to drink, and perhaps before. Then, he turned to his grandsons and said, “Let’s go home.” “ He wa s rea dy,” sa i d Schwetye. Perhaps Red was checking off the last box, because some 24 hours later and having lived a long and full life, he didn’t really feel the need to get out of bed.

the attention of city prosecutors. Hinckley’s June 1 email to the patrol said the circuit attorney’s office would cease accepting Crutcher’s applications for charges. “The trooper’s conduct came under scrutiny after several prosecuting attorneys expressed legal and ethical concerns about his conduct during their case assessment and review of dashcam footage,” Hinckley said in his email to Highway Patrol Maj. Greg Smith. “The review of the officer revealed a pattern of unacceptable practices and questionable behavior.” The dismissals of the troop-

er’s cases were first reported by KMOV-TV (Channel 4) last week, without identifying the trooper. Crutcher could not be reached for comment. Lt. Paul Reinsch, a spokesman for the patrol, would not answer questions about prosecutors’ claims of misconduct or the cases in question. In an email, Reinsch said, “While the patrol cannot discuss details of personnel matters, the Missouri State Highway Patrol takes all allegations seriously and expects employees to conduct themselves in a professional manner that aligns with our core values.” Hinckley informed City Counselor Julian Bush in a May 31

email that prosecutors had reviewed dozens of felony and misdemeanor cases and more than 300 traffic citations that Crutcher had brought to the circuit attorney’s office since August. All of the traffic cases Crutcher brought in have been refused or referred to Bush’s office, Hinckley said. “Our review showed repeated instances of undue pressure, factual exaggerations or misstatements of the law, seemingly all aimed at securing admissions or consents-to-search,” Hinckley told Bush. The circuit attorney’s office did not offer specifics of Crutcher’s conduct in traffic stops but an office spokeswoman said

Crutcher’s reports “were inconsistent with what we saw on the dashcam video.” Issues cited in a list of dismissed or refused cases provided by the circuit attorney’s office include a “lack of evidence,” “lab results negative” or “search and seizure problems.” Crutcher, 27, was hired by the patrol in July 2016 and is assigned to Troop C, which patrols the St. Louis region, Reinsch said. According to a Highway Patrol news release from last year, he is a Wentzville native who earned a bachelor’s degree in criminology from Missouri State University. Before joining the patrol, the release said, Crutcher worked as an assistant for the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency.

Judge’s decision to detain Manafort is ‘very unfair,’ president tweets

Bush said Thursday that 274 of the 498 traffic cases that the circuit attorney office referred to him are still pending. He said it is “likely” that the rest of those will be dismissed, adding that there’s an unknown number of other cases from Crutcher that could also be dropped. “We’re taking a look at them,” Bush said. “We’re accepting what the circuit attorney’s office told us. The fact that they have reservations causes us to have reservations.” Joel Currier • 314-621-5804 @joelcurrier on Twitter jcurrier@post-dispatch.com

The judge said sending Manafort to a cell was “an extraordinarily difficult decision” but his conduct — allegedly conspiring to contact witnesses in the case in an effort to get them to lie to investigators — left her little choice. “This is not middle school. I can’t take away his cellphone,” she said. “If I tell him not to call 56 witnesses, will he call the 57th?” She said she should not have to draft a court order spelling out the entire criminal code for him to avoid violations. “This hearing is not about politics. It is not about the conduct of the office of special counsel. It is about the defendant’s conduct,” Jackson said. “I’m concerned you seem to treat these proceedings as another marketing exercise.” Manafort, dressed in a blue suit and red tie, was led out of the courtroom by security officers. He turned and gave a last look and wave to his wife, seated in the well of the court. She nodded back to him. His lawyer Richard Westerling had urged the judge not to send him to jail, saying that it was not required by law, and doing so “will create more challenges for the defense, which already faces trial in two courts.” The order to incarcerate Manafort capped a monthslong fight over the terms of his bail. He had been confined to his home on electronic monitoring and other restrictions since he was first indicted Oct. 27 during special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He had been asking to post a $10 million bond and end seven months of home detention. It was not immediately clear

where Manafort would be jailed. Trump was critical of the decision to jail Manafort, saying in a tweet he “didn’t know Manafort was the head of the Mob.” “What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others? Very unfair!” the president tweeted. The president also referred incorrectly to Manafort’s pretrial detention, calling it a “tough sentence.” Manafort hasn’t been convicted of any crimes or sentenced to prison. The order marked the latest fall for the political power broker and confidant of Republican presidents dating back to Ronald Reagan. Hours earlier, Trump had defended Manafort in remarks to reporters outside the White House. Manafort “has nothing to do with our campaign, but I tell you I feel a little badly about it,” Trump said. “They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago.” Trump added that Manafort “worked for me for a very short period of time.” Asked if he might consider pardoning former aides and advisers, Trump answered: “I don’t want to talk about that.”

But Rudy Giuliani, a Trump attorney, told the New York Daily News on Friday that the Mueller investigation “might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons.” Giuliani later backtracked from his suggestion pardons might be coming. “Our advice is not to do it,” he told The Washington Post. “It would have to be way down the road. There should be no pardons.” Prosecutors alleged that by committing a new crime while on release, Manafort violated the terms of his home confinement in Alexandria, Va., and they asked the judge to revoke or revise it. Manafort, 69, has pleaded not guilty to all charges in what prosecutors say was a broader conspiracy to launder more than $30 million over a decade of undisclosed lobbying for a former pro-Russian politician and party in Ukraine. The case against him includes failing to register in the U.S. as a lobbyist for a foreign government. On June 8, he and a Russian business associate were charged with obstruction of justice after prosecutors say they tried to persuade two potential witnesses to tell investigators the Ukraine lobbying effort did not include activity

in the United States. Manafort’s attorneys have denied the tampering allegations and accused prosecutors of conjuring charges to pressure him to flip his plea and turn against Trump and his associates. Manafort was arraigned Friday on the obstruction counts and is set for trial in Washington in September over the allegations of secret lobbying. He also faces a federal trial in Virginia in July for related tax and bank fraud charges brought as prosecutors reviewed his financial dealings. Most of the criminal counts relate to activity that preceded Manafort’s time as Trump’s campaign manager from March to August of 2016, when he resigned amid news reports that he had received secret cash payments for his Ukraine consulting. The fall indictment of Manafort and his longtime deputy, Rick Gates, marked the first public charges in the special counsel investigation. Gates, 46, pleaded guilty in February to lying to investigators and agreed to provide information in a cooperation deal with Mueller’s team. Prosecutors had previously complained to the judge about Manafort’s behavior as he awaited trial. In December, they accused him of violating a court’s gag order by helping ghostwrite an op-ed piece defending his work in Ukraine for an English-language newspaper in Kiev. In asking for Manafort to be jailed, prosecutor Greg Andres said in court that there was a danger Manafort would continue to commit crimes. “There is nothing on the record of this court that assures that Mr. Manafort will abide by conditions” of pretrial release short of jail, Andres said.

who write “food poisoning” or similar keywords within a 50-mile radius of the city. The Food Safety STL account responds to such tweets with a three-part message — an extension of sympathy, an offer to help and a call to action. Twitter user @CrashStL last week wrote: “Food poisoning is no joke. I’ve been down since about 11 last night. Make it stop.” The @FoodSafetySTL account, run by an unpaid intern at the health department, replied, “Sorry to hear you’re ill. The City can help you report it” and posted a link to a complaint form. The one-page form asks whether the suspected food poisoning came from a store or restaurant, and other details of the experience. Nearly 15 percent of people who are sent the form through Twitter fill it out, according to Candace Da Silva, an educator with the health department. If a local restaurant or store is involved, health inspectors will visit to check for food safety violations. If the location is outside the city, the case is forwarded to the appropriate health department. The system allows the health department to seek out people when they are sick, instead of waiting for them to file a complaint, Da Silva said. “The sooner we’re able to initiate those conversations, the greater the likelihood we can go out and find what’s making them sick.” Restaurant inspectors generally look for sanitation and food storage issues, including inappropriate temperatures that can allow bacteria to grow. Foodborne illnesses caused by norovirus or bacteria like salmonella and E. coli generally strike within 12 to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and fever. Most people do not seek medical attention, but the biggest concern is dehydration. Few cases of food poisoning are reported to local health departments, even though it’s advised by health officials. Jenine Harris, associate professor of public health at Washington University, helped the health department launch the project and has studied the results. “If you got sick at a restaurant you probably call the restaurant or don’t do anything, but who you should really call is your health department,” Harris said. “This is one way to reach out to constituents who may not even know that a health department exists to do this kind of thing.” Since the project started, the department has responded to 750 complaints of food poisoning through Twitter. It received 51 completed forms that named 16 restaurants or stores in the city. Food inspectors completed 14 inspections and found seven critical violations considered high risk for foodborne illness. An additional two dozen complaints were forwarded to the St. Louis County health department. “It’s a very promising approach and allows us to tap into an audience that otherwise may not report to the health department,” Da Silva said. Da Silva said the tweets are entertaining to read, as “people are not shy and are very expressive and emotive in terms of describing their experiences to say the least.” Some of the tweets reference specific restaurants, whose social media teams also get involved in the investigation. Social media mining has been used by other health agencies to search for mosquito activity, flu symptoms and even suicidal thoughts. The New York City health department searches restaurant reviews on Yelp for signs of possible food poisoning. “In general people have been very appreciative and almost welcome this type of interaction with their health department,” Da Silva said. “It fosters transparency and trust.” Blythe Bernhard • 314-340-8129 @blythebernhard on Twitter bbernhard@post-dispatch.com

Commission recommends rejecting plans for sand mine

With billions at stake, U.S. is set to review 1940s-era music rules By LuCaS SHaW Bloomberg

BRYCE GRAY • Post-Dispatch

A small lake sits on forested land in Jefferson County, north of Hillsboro, where developers have proposed opening an industrial sand mine. By BryCE Gray St. Louis Post-Dispatch

HILLSBOrO • An industrial sand mine

looking to break ground in a residential pocket of Jefferson County absorbed a major setback Thursday night when Planning and Zoning Commission officials unanimously recommended that its application be denied. The commission’s recommendation sent a roar of approval through an overflowing crowd of hundreds of people who tried packing into the hearing — drawn almost exclusively, it seemed, by opposition to the proposed 259-acre project. “Obviously there’s a lot of people opposed to this,” said commission member Tim Dugan, while hearing testimony from the prospective mine developers and from nearby residents. “I’ve been doing this for a while and this is the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen.” Denying the project was also recommended in a report generated by Jefferson County Planning Division staff prior to Thursday’s meeting. The Jefferson County Council will still need to issue a final decision on the proposed mine’s permit application. Some residents opposing the project were hopeful that the unanimous vote Thursday would be difficult for the council to ignore. “I think it’s step one, but it helps that it’s unanimous,” said JoAnn Enloe, a lifelong area resident who lives across the

street from the proposed mine site, which is bounded by Tishomingo Road and Highway 21, north of Hillsboro. “I hope that they’re listening to the citizens.” The sand at the site would be used for fracking and other applications. St. Peter Sand Co., the group behind the project, “shares some common ownership” with Midwest Proppant, according to Andy Niemeier, a company representative who spoke at the meeting. Midwest Proppant is an Arnold-based company that supplies sand predominantly used for fracking. Rebecca Leonard, an adjacent property owner who spoke against the project, said that 1,126 signatures had been collected on a petition opposing the mine, along with 61 letters. Reasons for oppositions ranged from health concerns about dust and carcinogenic potential of fine-grained silica particles, to concerns about blasting and impacts on groundwater and traffic. Matt Clark, another company official who addressed the commission, said about 150 truckloads of material a day could be taken from the proposed facility. He said the operation could support 10 to 20 full-time employees plus about 30 truck driver positions, and that the mine aims to do business for a 10-year lifespan at the site. “I understand development,” said Jerry Cox, who lives next to the site. “(But) it’s not the right place.” Bryce Gray • 314-340-8307 @_BryceGray on Twitter bgray@post-dispatch.com

The Justice Department plans to review agreements that determine how songwriters are paid by radio stations, restaurants and streaming services, a move that could affect billions in royalties doled out each year. Makan Delrahim, the top antitrust official at the Department of Justice, signaled in a speech Wednesday that he was examining the so-called consent decrees. And people familiar with the matter say the department has communicated its plans in discussions with music-industry executives. The Justice Department also has scheduled additional meetings in the coming weeks, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. The Justice Department declined to comment on the meetings. Consent decrees govern payments collected by go-between groups ASCAP and BMI that are later routed to songwriters or their publishers. While previous efforts to reform the system haven’t been successful, Delrahim’s stance has given songwriters new hope that the World War II-era agreements could finally be modernized. “While the industry has grown around these two decrees, it should also recognize they are subject to periodic review,” Delrahim said this week during the speech, held at the annual meeting of the National Music Publishers Association. Delrahim spoke at the request of NMPA President David Israelite, with whom he worked at the Justice Department under Attorney General John Ashcroft. Delrahim has announced plans to review many of the more than 1,300 other consent decrees under his jurisdiction at the department but has yet to officially add ASCAP and BMI to the list. He said the decrees remain relevant and promised to be deliberate, allaying fears that he would scrap them with little notice. Without consent decrees, songwriters could potentially negotiate higher rates with radio stations and other parties. But it also could throw the industry into chaos.

“The system isn’t perfect as is, but it would be much much much worse if the consent decrees were terminated,” said John Bodnovich, executive director at the American Beverage Licensees, an organization that represents bars and restaurants. Songwriters are paid what’s known as a public-performance royalty when their tracks are played on the radio and in public venues like a restaurant. Public-performance royalties have spiked in recent years because ASCAP and BMI have also started collecting money on behalf of songwriters from streaming services, such as Spotify Technology SA and Pandora Media Inc. Services like Apple Inc.’s iTunes, however, also sell albums and individual songs, which generate a different kind of royalty collected directly by a music publisher. The government first started overseeing ASCAP and BMI before color TV was introduced. In 1941, the U.S. government sued ASCAP, which stands for the American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers, on the basis that the organization’s large repertoire of songs gave it too much negotiating power over groups that wanted to license the music. The two sides settled the case, leading to the creation of a consent decree, and the government later entered into a separate agreement with BMI. ASCAP and BMI last asked the department to adjust the consent decrees for the era of online music in 2014, and continue to hope the government will update the rules in their favor. “We’re encouraged by their willingness to have a conversation,” BMI said in a statement. “This is exactly what we attempted to do four years ago, and any initiative to review the effectiveness of our decree is a welcome one.” But Delrahim’s public criticism of consent decrees — and specifically comments that he could end them after a 30-day public comment period — have raised concerns, even from those who advocate reforms. Scrapping the system without a new method could wreak havoc on industries involved in the licensing of public-performance rights.

Allegiant cancels some flights for lack of planes • Allegiant canceled more flights around the country because, it says, new planes didn’t show up when expected. Customers have been venting on social media, demanding reimbursement for things like last-minute hotel stays. Allegiant canceled 16 flights Friday after scrapping about 21 on Thursday. Allegiant spokeswoman Krysta Levy says delivery dates for some new planes were missed, leaving the airline with limited resources and the difficult choice to cancel certain flights. Levy says the airline is giving passengers options including rebooking on other Allegiant flights or getting refunds. Allegiant’s ability to accommodate passengers is limited, however, because the Las Vegas-based carrier lacks agreements with other airlines to take its passengers when flights are canceled. Wells Fargo settles retail sales lawsuit • Wells Fargo & Co. said on Friday a district court in California approved a $142 million class-action settlement to compensate customers who were affected by a sales scandal related to the opening of phony bank accounts. The scandal came to light in September 2016 when the San Francisco-based bank agreed to pay $185 million in penalties to settle charges by authorities including the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau over creating, what it then said could be, as many as 2.1 million accounts in customers’ names without their permission. Since then, it has discovered other problems in businesses ranging from mortgages to foreign exchange trading, while the number of possibly made-up accounts swelled to 3.5 million. Wells Fargo executives have also appeared numerous times before the Senate banking committee and other federal bodies. “(The approval) ... is a significant step forward in making things right for our customers

and further restoring trust with all of Wells Fargo’s stakeholders,” said Chief Executive Officer Tim Sloan. Existing and former customers will be able to submit claims through July 7, the bank said. NIH to end study of alcohol’s benefits • The U.S. government is shutting down a study that was supposed to show if a single drink a day could prevent heart attacks, saying ethical problems with how the research was planned and funded undermine its credibility. The National Institutes of Health used money from the alcohol industry to help pay for a study that ultimately was expected to cost $100 million. Adding private money to taxpayer dollars for research is legal under certain rules. The problem: An NIH investigation concluded Friday that a small number of its employees had close contact with industry officials that crossed those lines. Some of those interactions “appear to intentionally bias” the study so that it would have a better chance of showing a benefit from moderate alcohol consumption, said NIH Deputy Director Lawrence Tabak. Those employees, from the NIH’s National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, kept their interactions with industry secret, he said, after the NIH started the appropriate process for asking companies or other outside groups to help fund a research project. Those actions cast “doubt that the scientific knowledge gained from the study would be actionable or believable,” Tabak told a meeting of the NIH director’s advisers. Another concern: Some outside experts who had reviewed the study plans raised concerns that it was too small and too short to address the potential problems of a daily drink — such as an increased risk of cancer or heart failure — and not just potential benefits such as a lowered risk of a heart attack.

A leading Danforth Center scientist is terminated after conduct inquiry BY BRYCE GRAY St. Louis Post-dispatch

A leading scientist at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center has been terminated after an investigation into “a complaint of inappropriate conduct and comments of a sexual nature,” according to the center. An online statement posted Thursday by the Creve Coeur biotechnology research facility said that Tom Brutnell, a principal investigator at the center and the director of its Enterprise Rent-A-Car Institute for Renewable Fuels, was dismissed after an internal investigation into his behavior began in May. Brutnell had been placed on a leave of absence during the investigation. “There were multiple things,” said Danforth Center President Jim Carrington, referring to the alleged inappropriate incidents involving Brutnell. “We’re not disclosing the specific nature of

any allegations or the specific nature of any findings.” Carrington said that “one or multiple individuals came forward,” regarding Brutnell’s conduct, and that the Danforth Center is “committed to making sure the productivity and the careers of those individuals is not impeded.” Employees of Brutnell’s lab and their research — which included an emphasis on biofuels — will move to other labs and supervisors within the facility. “The Brutnell lab was involved in several projects and most of those projects will continue. The work, however, will migrate to other labs at the Danforth, for the most part,” said Carrington. “Those labs are generally already collaborators with them.” Although Brutnell was a prominent figure at the Danforth Center, Carrington said that the episode is helping spur “self-reflection” to ensure that employ-

Former McGowan employee sues, alleging hostile work environment BY BRIAN FELDT St. Louis Post-dispatch

A former employee of McGowan Brothers Development Corp., a prominent downtown St. Louis building owner and developer, has sued the company and its owner, Tim McGowan, alleging discrimination, sexual harassment and a hostile work environment. In the suit filed Tuesday in St. Louis Circuit Court, Jamie Alvers said she worked as an executive assistant and accounts manager for the company since early 2006 and she alleges she was subjected to a hostile and offensive work environment based on her sex, which was perpetuated and condoned by Tim McGowan. Specifically, the suit alleges,

McGowan made jokes about Alvers’ breast augmentation, asked her to kiss other people, presented her with cash and told her where to shop for clothing, touched her buttocks under and over her clothing, asked her if she ever thought “what could have been” between the two, and drove her to a gentleman’s club without her permission. The harassment, the suit alleges, concluded in May 2017 when during a performance review, McGowan told a postpartum Alvers she would not get a performance-based raise due to her breast pumping and nursing status. Alvers resigned a few weeks later after she determined the working environment would not improve and she would not re-

We take these issues seriously no matter who is involved.” Andrew Miltenberg, a lawyer representing Brutnell, said in a statement that his client “intends to respect the integrity of the Danforth Center’s internal process and maintain a respectful privacy of all parties. As such, at this juncture, he will not be commenting on any allegations.” Bryce Gray • 314-340-8307 @_BryceGray on Twitter bgray@post-dispatch.com

ceive fair treatment, according to the lawsuit. McGowan, in an email, said he was not yet aware of the suit and declined to comment. Alvers is seeking damages. She is being represented by Scott D. Kehlenbrink of Reinoehl Kehlenbrink LLC, who did not return requests for comment. McGowan Brothers Development was founded in 1997, when it acquired a downtown building at 1221 Washington Avenue. The firm is one of several development companies to lead the revitalization of Washington Avenue. The company owns buildings that house Lucas Park Grille, Rosalita’s Cantina, St. Louis Fitness Factory and Flannery’s, among others.

Trump claims FBI ‘plotting against’ him ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON • President Donald Trump disputed on Friday findings by the Justice Department that former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe was not politically motivated, declaring that there was “total bias” at the FBI and that the “top people” at the agency were “plotting against my election.” The department’s in-

spector general report, while critical of the FBI and Comey personally, did not find evidence that political bias tainted the investigation of Clinton’s email practices in the months and days leading up to Trump’s election. But on Friday, after tweeting that he did a “great service” to the nation by firing Comey, Trump went out to the W h i te Ho u se No r t h Lawn to talk with “Fox & Friends” for more than

Ethics office seeks larger probe of Pruitt ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON • The federal government’s top ethics officer is asking for an expanded investigation of Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt to address recent allegations that he used aides to conduct personal business for him. David Apol, acting director of the Office of Government Ethics, made the request to EPA’s inspector general in a letter Friday. He is asking that the investigations be expedited so he can decide whether to begin “a formal corrective action” and make recommendations to President Donald Trump. Pruitt already is the subject of several investigations over his use of first-class travel, security detail and spending. Apol said the American public needs assurances that allegations of ethical mis-

conduct are investigated and addressed. Meanwhile, Trump is praising Pruitt’s work as head of the agency — but stressing his concerns as well. Trump told reporters Friday that Pruitt was doing a “fantastic job running the EPA, which is very overriding.” But Trump went on to say three times — “I’m not happy about certain things.” Growing numbers of Republican lawmakers have joined Democrats in blasting the EPA chief over the ethics allegations. Democrats are seeking answers as to how Pruitt obtained tickets to this year’s Rose Bowl college football game with the help of a firm that does public affairs work for energy companies. Federal ethics rules prohibit government employees from accepting gifts, such as tickets to sporting events.

DIGEST Trump distances himself from Cohen President Donald Trump is distancing himself from attorney Michael Cohen, who is facing an FBI investigation of his business dealings. Trump told reporters at the White House Friday that he likes Cohen but hasn’t spoken to him in a long time. He also says Cohen is no longer his lawyer. Prosecutors in New York said in a court filing later Friday that they are still processing material seized from Cohen in an April raid. They say the haul of records included more than a dozen pages of shredded documents that have now been reconstructed and hundreds of pages of encrypted messages. First woman to command space station retires • NASA’s record-breaking astronaut, Peggy Whitson, retired Friday less than a year after returning from her last and longest spaceflight. She’s spent more time off the planet than any other American: 665 days over three space station missions. She’s also the world’s most experienced female spacewalker, with 10 under her spacesuit belt. Whitson, 58, was the first woman to command the International Space Station, holding the position twice, and the oldest woman ever to fly in space. She was also the only woman to have served as chief of NASA’s male-dominated astronaut corps. Fellow astronauts called her a “space ninja.” Eric Trump charity inquiry still open • New York’s attorney general isn’t done taking on Trump family charities after suing the president over allegations he treated his nonprofit like a personal piggy bank. Barbara Underwood’s spokeswoman said Friday that a separate investigation remains

open into the Eric Trump Foundation, run by Donald Trump’s son. The Associated Press reported in 2016 that the children’s charity flouted nonprofit standards in part by financially benefiting charities with Trump family connections. A Trump family spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a message. Transgender prisoner’s lawsuit can move forward • A federal judge says a lawsuit brought by a transgender woman seeking to be transferred from an all-male Massachusetts prison to a women’s facility can move forward. Judge Richard Stearns denied the Massachusetts Department of Correction’s attempt to dismiss the lawsuit Thursday. The lawsuit filed in November says the inmate, who has gender dysphoria, has been traumatized by being forced to “eat, sleep, shower and live with men.” Stearns said the inmate can pursue her claim that her placement in the male prison violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. Theranos founder indicted in fraud case • Federal prosecutors indicted Elizabeth Holmes on criminal fraud charges for allegedly defrauding investors, doctors and the public as the head of the once-heralded bloodtesting startup Theranos. Federal prosecutors also brought charges against the company’s former second-in-command. Holmes and her former Chief Operating Officer Ramesh Balwani, are charged with fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud. Prosecutors allege that Holmes and Balwani deliberately misled investors, policymakers and the public about the accuracy of Theranos’ blood-testing technologies going back to at least 2013.

half an hour, claiming the report “totally” exonerated him, then pointing to accomplishments he said he’s achieved and complaining about not getting proper credit. Then he turned to other reporters and went over the same list for another 20 minutes. On the inspector general report that found no political bias in the FBI’s final conclusions, he said, “The end result was wrong. There was total bias.” “Comey was the ringleader of this whole, you know, den of thieves. It was a den of thieves,” he said.

Trump’s comments followed the IG’s 500-page report that said Comey was “insubordinate” in his handling of the Clinton investigation because he broke agency protocol. The report also rebuked FBI officials for exchanging antiTrump text messages during the 2016 campaign. But it said, “We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations; rather, we determined that they were based on the prosecutors’ assessment of the facts, the law and past department practice.”

Trump’s supporters have argued that the findings are proof of political bias at the FBI’s highest levels that then tainted the Russia investigation, first led by the FBI and now by special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller’s probe includes a look into whether Trump himself tried to obstruct justice by firing Comey. Trump said Friday, as he has before, that the Mueller probe, too, “has been totally discredited.” Also criticized in the report was Comey’s decision, despite the discouragement of the Justice Department, to reveal to Congress that the FBI was

reopening the investigation after the discovery of new Clinton emails. The FBI obtained a warrant nine days before the presidential election to review those emails, found on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, DN.Y., — the husband of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — and ultimately determined there was nothing that changed its original conclusion. The report faulted the FBI for failing to act with more urgency in reviewing emails from Weiner’s laptop, saying the inaction had “potentially farreaching consequences.”

Trump’s move to redefine water rule threatens wetlands banks

GAINESVILLE, FLA. • A private firm is making big money selling promises about some gator-infested Florida swampland. The Panther Island Mitigation Bank isn’t another land boondoggle, but part of a federal system designed to restore wetlands across the United States. Panther Island’s owners preserved one of the nation’s last stands of virgin bald cypress, 4 square miles on the western edge of the Everglades where they cleared away invasive plants and welcomed back wood storks, otters and other native flora and fauna. Banks like this sell “wetlands mitigation credits” to developers for up to $300,000 apiece, offsetting the destruction of marshes by construction projects elsewhere. It’s a billiondollar industry that has slowed the loss of U.S. wetlands, half of which are already gone. This uniquely American mix of conservation and capitalism has been supported by every president since George H.W. Bush pledged a goal of “no net loss” of wetlands, growing a market for mitigation credits from about 40 banks in the early 1990s to nearly 1,500 today. Investors include Chevron and Wall Street firms, working alongside the Audubon Society and other environmental groups. Now the market is at risk. Administrator Scott Pruitt’s Environmental Protection Agency has completed a proposal for implementing President Donald Trump’s executive order to replace the Waters of the United States rule, or WOTUS,

The system began decades ago under the Army Corps of Engineers, but it initially wasn’t well-designed, and the market failed to take off. The Corps had been letting developers who lacked the necessary expertise design and build the restoration projects. Some failed to replace what was lost or lacked plans to maintain them. The Corps and EPA revamped the system in 2008, requiring developers to collaborate with conservation experts, and to get the science right before selling any credits. Since then, the market has seen its biggest growth, with innovative projects proving to be both profitable and ecologically sustainable. The country is still losing wetlands. There is no national-level data that shows how close mitigation banks are to achieving the “no net loss” goal. But Corps permit data show that from 2002-2015, when the agency allowed about 350 square miles of wetlands to be filled, developers were required to buy about 800 square miles of compensatory mitigation credits, mostly from banks. Trump’s order directs the EPA and Corps to consider adopting the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s 2006 definition, which would limit Clean Water Act protections for non-navigable waterways to those that remain covered by water yearround and connected to navigable rivers, lakes or streams. This could remove many waters from federal oversight and hit mitigation banking hard, experts say.

with a much more limited definition of what constitutes a protected federal waterway. The current definition is an overreach that claims federal jurisdiction over “dry creek beds” and “prairie puddles” that are better regulated by the states, Pruitt told a group of farmers and businesspeople in Lincoln, Neb., Thursday night. “We’re going to say what it is, but we’re also going to say what it isn’t. We’re proposing that prairie puddles in North Dakota are not waters of the United States and we’re proposing that groundwater is not water of the United States,” Pruitt said. “That’s how you save the economy a billion dollars.” The EPA said the proposal now faces months of reviews before being released for public comment, but experts in mitigation are already alarmed. “It would destroy wetland mitigation banking at the federal level,” said Royal Gardner, a professor at Florida’s Stetson University College of Law. The EPA did not specifically address AP questions about how redefining waterways could affect wetland mitigation banking. Wetlands are protected under the Clean Water Act because they are vital to the nation’s water quality. Their dense vegetation helps filter out toxins as water flows through. Wetlands provide key fish and bird habitat and protect coastal land from hurricanes. Mitigation banks are not a panacea, but they are the government’s preferred method of protecting wetlands from damage from development, a preference that has fueled the market for mitigation credits.

Presbyterians make bail reform a priority for biennial gathering

FAITH PERSPECTIVES

Hands and feet are already in motion as assembly begins CHRISTOPHER KEATING Woodlawn Chapel Presbyterian Church

RYAN MICHALESKO • rmichalesko@post-dispatch.com

Members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) walk Friday alongside Riverpark Drive in East St. Louis as part of Walk for a Fossil Free World, a fossil fuel industry divestment movement. The organization’s annual meeting starts Saturday in St. Louis. BY ERIN HEFFERNAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Some 2,500 Presbyteri-

ans will gather in St. Louis this week to decide the future of the one of the 10 largest Protestant denominations in the United States. The attendees will march through downtown Tuesday to call for justice reform. The Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly will begin Saturday and last through June 23 at the America’s Center Convention Complex. The assembly brings leaders of the church together every two years to settle issues within the denomination. But, unlike years past, attendees will leave the convention center floor to demonstrate on a social justice issue identified as central to the host city. The church opted to focus on bail reform, a decades-old movement that has heated up in St. Louis in recent years, in part because of the protests and reforms that followed the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. “My goal is that people in the host cities will at least know how to spell

Presbyterian after all this is over,” said J. Herbert Nelson II, stated clerk of the General Assembly. “We don’t want to be another convention that just comes to town to engage in commerce and then leaves. ... We want to work to try and arrive at solutions.” The church will donate the offering collection at the opening worship ceremony to bail out people accused of minor offenses in partnership with local organizations, including The Bail Project and Arch City Defenders. Attendees will then march from the convention center to the St. Louis City Justice Center at 3 p.m. Tuesday to draw attention to what church leaders say is a system that increases incarceration and perpetuates inequality. The Pretrial Justice Institute says that nearly two-thirds of people in local jails are awaiting trial and have not been convicted of a crime, and many are facing only low-level, nonviolent charges. “This issue was chosen because it was most in line with where social justice movements in St. Louis are going and the goals of the church,” said

the Rev. Erin Counihan, pastor at Oak Hill Presbyterian Church in south St. Louis. Counihan was among local Presbyterian leaders who helped plan the assembly’s engagement with the city, which also included a push for church members to take service trips to St. Louis for the past two years. “I think as a denomination we’re deciding to take risks in the name of justice,” she said. “Because that’s what Jesus did. He wasn’t hiding behind walls and pews. He was walking with the people. Beyond the demonstration, a number of issues will be decided within the church during the assembly, including resolutions on the Middle East, parental leave for church employees and, for the third assembly in a row, divestment in fossil fuels. A group advocating divestment, a Walk for a Fossil Free World, walked to St. Louis from the denomination headquarters in Louisville, Ky., to draw attention to the issue over the last two weeks. They arrived in St. Louis on Friday afternoon.

Missouri Synod explains budget cuts to global mission BY JESSE BOGAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

KIRKWOOD • Known for its conservative brand of Lutheranism, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod will also have a conservative budget here at its international headquarters in fiscal year 2019. Its new annual budget will be $69.4 million, down $7.65 million or 10 percent from the current year, and down $12.5 million or 15 percent since 2016. Like other huge denominations, LCMS, which has about 6,000 congregations and 2 million baptized members in North America, is challenged by fewer people in the pews and declining revenue. The church, which is affiliated with Lutheran seminaries in Clayton and Fort Wayne, Ind., and several colleges and universities, has said that it expects to lose about 500,000 members in the next 10 to 15 years. LCMS officer salaries have been frozen the past two years. A historically black college is closing. Now, 14 vacant positions at headquarters at 1333 South Kirkwood Road are being eliminated and $6.5 million is being cut from international missions. But the Rev. Kevin Robson, chief mission officer, said in a wide-ranging interview Wednesday that the bulk of

the 2019 budget cuts were merely an accounting maneuver that stripped hundreds of “wish-list items” from current overseas projects — anything from a theological symposium for African pastors to expanding a network of orphanages in Kenya. “We’ve become very well organized and rather selective about what’s actually included in the budget to reflect exactly the revenues that we are anticipating,” Robson said. He assured that “opportunistic initiatives” abroad weren’t forgotten. “We are not putting those in the budget even though we will be talking to donors about those possibilities,” said Robson, whose duties include supervising fundraising efforts. In the past decade, LCMS has made some notable changes. It sold classical music radio station KFUO (99.1 FM) for $26 million. In early 2018, LCMS announced that Concordia College Alabama in Selma would close. LCMS also is closing its missionary headquarters in Hong Kong and moving to Taiwan. “We really weren’t efficiently using those properties and really maximizing their utility,” Robson said of three Hong Kong properties. “There were a number of things that converged on us, none of which has to do with any kind of concern over the financial con-

dition of the synod at all.” He said the China Evangelical Lutheran Church offered free office and housing space in Taiwan for LCMS missionaries and their families. Despite concern from some church members, he said there were no plans to sell the seminary property in Clayton. “To us, that seminary along with the seminary in Fort Wayne are in some ways the foundation of our ministry,” he said. “They really represent the crown jewels of our education system.” Robson said there were no plans to sell church properties to support the budget. “We are continually evaluating the use of our properties and assets on a worldwide basis, as any sort of worldclass organization would, right?” he said. Despite budget cuts, he said, LCMS is alive and well. “We are about as free and aggressive and lively and vivid as you could possibly imagine in our desire to advance the Gospel in the most creative and constructive ways possible,” he said. He wouldn’t predict what the LCMS budget would be in five years. “I don’t know if I want to put a number on that,” he said. “I don’t know if I want to constrain God.”

Ready or not, here come the Presbyterians — by trains, planes, automobiles and even on foot. Several thousand members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have arrived in St. Louis for the church’s 223rd General Assembly, taking place Saturday through June 23. Think of it as a Presbyterian confab. A Protestant meetup. Perhaps even a “Presby xing,” as opposed to a “ped xing.” The denomination, the largest branch of Presbyterians in the United States, traces its roots to Colonial America. The General Assembly consists of commissioners elected by regional governing bodies called presbyteries. Equal numbers of clergy and lay members serve as commissioners for the biennial assembly. Presbyterians love meetings, and as far as meetings go, General Assembly is a whopper. Attendees will flock into the America’s Center Convention Complex and fill seven downtown hotels. There will be meals and motions, caucuses and gatherings, preaching and prayers, communion services and social gatherings. At times it is part political convention, family reunion and corporate meeting blended around worship and Bible study. Sometimes things get a bit raucous. Policy geeks will be on the edge of their seats, their hearts pounding with the opening gavel, eagerly awaiting the first person who will jump into the fray to introduce a substitute motion or offer a minority report. Oh, the drama! But in an age when mainline Protestant denominations are dwindling does any of this matter? Couldn’t business be conducted more economically by video conference? Or, as Jill Duffield, editor of independent newspaper The Presbyterian Outlook, remarked recently, “If a vote takes place in a convention center and no one notices, was a vote cast?” Duffield notes that as she visits local congregations to discuss business coming before this year’s General Assembly the first question she is inevitably asked is, “So what?” It’s a great question, and the answer seems to be, here’s a church ready to move. There’s more to this meeting than reading reports and taking votes. It is also an opportunity for nurture and formation, a place where the church can stretch its legs and warm up its muscles. We believe, as Presbyterians, that the church is called to be more than an institution. Guided by the Holy Spirit, the church is a movement carrying the grace of Christ into a world of need. As commissioners and servants of the church gather, for example, they are arriving in a city where the “hands and feet” of the church have been at work for several years preparing for the meeting. For the past year, local Presbyterians have been welcoming service groups as part of the Hands and Feet initiative. They’ve come to participate in urban ministry, and to provide relief to those affected by flooding. With their hands and feet, they’ve helped create healing and reconciliation in a city torn apart by racial divisions. The feet of a few participants will be especially weary as they cross the river, concluding a 260mile walk from the denomination’s Louisville, Ky., headquarters to St. Louis. Thirty-five participants in the PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World undertook the journey as a spiritual pilgrimage to call attention to the impact of fossil fuels on climate change. On Tuesday, the assembly will rise from its seats and move into the streets to walk to the City Justice Center. Leaders will present an offering of bail money for poor persons who cannot afford to post bond. The hands and feet of a church in motion will offer hope and carry new enthusiasm home at the end of the assembly. We were once known as a church with lots of standing committees. It’s possible that after the meeting in St. Louis, Presbyterians will be better known for our soles as much as our souls. Keating serves as pastor of the Woodlawn Chapel Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Wildwood. He is a regular Faith Perspectives contributor to STLtoday.com/religion.

POSTCARD FROM MOUND CITy • By DAN MARTIN

$12.5 million worth of karma

Lawyers for the Los Angeles Rams in Reggie Bush’s personal injury lawsuit against the team must have known that the St. Louis Circuit Court was going to be a hostile venue. You don’t pull your NFL team out of St. Louis, alleging a crummy stadium, as Rams’ owner Stan Kroenke did in 2016, and rip the city on the way out without incurring some hard feelings. So it was that a jury last week awarded Bush, a onetime San Francisco 49ers running back, $12.5 million for a crippling knee injury he suffered in a game at the erstwhile Edward Jones Dome in 2015, the Rams’ final season here. Bush was forced out of bounds and slipped on the concrete perimeter that encircled the artificial playing surface. Originally Bush had sued both the Rams and the two public agencies that operate the stadium, but a judge dismissed the agencies as defendants. This was because the Rams’ sweetheart lease gave the team absolute control of the stadium on game days. We loved seeing the Rams defend a stadium they once found so inadequate. Since Kroenke has a fortune estimated at $8.3 billion and is building a stadium in Los Angeles with a price tag of $5 billion, we’re pretty sure he can afford the judgment.

Too much ‘careless gayety’ We have it on no less an authority than the Journals of Lewis and Clark that at least since 1804, people in St. Charles have liked to party along “one principal street, about a mile in length and running parallel with the river.” Today four blocks of historic Main Street and its environs house no fewer than 18 bars where patrons — in Clark’s words — “unite all the careless gayety, and the amiable hospitality of the best times of France.” The city now is considering cracking down on drunkenness and rowdiness. To forestall draconian measures like 11 p.m. closings, bar and restaurant owners are trying to come up with alternatives to curb the worst of the behavior. One idea: a dress code, on the theory that people in nice clothes would be less likely to get drunk and sloppy. North Main Street, a victim of its own success, is hopping on warm summer nights. We hope the city can maintain its amiable hospitality while making the “gayety” a little less careless.

Bigger fish to fry With rampant opioid trafficking and one of the highest violent crime rates in the country, St. Louis generates plenty of serious legal work to keep Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office busy. The last thing she needs is a pile of petty pot offenses to prosecute. Marijuana possession, on the law enforcement grand scale, is pretty low-hanging fruit. Prosecuting those cases takes a lot of time and offers minimal returns for the city in terms of fine collections and deterrent value. Gardner was correct to declare this week that the city would no longer pursue prosecutions against people caught possessing less than 100 grams of marijuana. Her decision upset Jeff Roorda, of the St. Louis Police Officers Association. But with the trend across the country toward complete legalization of marijuana, it’s time for a much-needed reassessment of pot’s dangers, especially compared to the heroin, fentanyl and other drugs menacing our streets.

We’ve criticized Trump for years because of his coarse language and overall lack of civility, so it would be hypocritical not to call De Niro out for lowering himself to that level.

Flipped out FBI agent Chase Bishop, 29, found out the hard way that backflips, guns and Denver’s Mile High Spirits bar don’t mix. At about 12:45 a.m. June 2, Bishop, apparently feeling frisky, got out in the middle of the dance floor surrounded by bar patrons and executed a backflip. Just as he was about to land the flip, Bishop’s gun flew out from a holster at the back of his pants. As he picked up the gun from the floor, it fired and a bullet struck patron Tom Reddington in the leg. Since everything is captured on video these days, the entire episode went viral online. Bishop has been charged with felony assault, and the Denver District Attorney’s Office says more charges could be filed depending on blood-alcohol test results. The FBI has no comment on Bishop’s employment status.

‘The Trump of Pahrump’ That’s what Dennis Hof is calling himself. He’s the owner of half a dozen legal brothels in Nevada, author of “The Art of the Pimp,” and star of the HBO adult reality show, “Cathouse: The Series.” Hof won a Republican primary for the Nevada Legislature on Tuesday, defeating a three-term lawmaker. He celebrated his win at a party in Pahrump, Nev., accompanied by “Hollywood Madam,” Heidi Fleiss. He credits President Donald Trump with his leap into politics. “It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,” Hof told The Associated Press in a phone call. “He found the way, and I jumped on it.” Politics does make strange bedfellows, in more ways than one.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS North Korean leaders need someone to clean up their mess I lived through World War II and every war since, but I’ve never seen the world as crazy as it is now. It seems like a spirit of death has taken over, and instead of people being able to get along with each other, they would rather go to war than live in harmony with their neighbors. The problem with so many political leaders in this world today is they only care for themselves and not for the people who live in their countries. North Korea is one of those nations I’m talking about. Kim Jong Un met with President Donald Trump, who wants the North Koreans to give up their nuclear weapons and hopefully all their intercontinental ballistic missiles. I hope that Kim and his cronies are smart enough to kneel down to the god of common sense and let South Korea take over the mess they have made of their country. Before the Communists took over North Korea, it was a nation that supported Christianity. I pray that this tiny nation will return to the God of their forefathers and allow him to restore their country. If not, God help us. Nuclear war is just a precursor of what hell is like. Perhaps we should treat Kim the same way we treated Japanese Emperor Hirohito after World War II. Let him and his family live like kings in a palace somewhere. Jim Panhorst • O’Fallon, Mo.

Gaining political power is not worth ruining our country Party politics have degenerated to the point where you have to question the future of the country. We have sunk to the point politicians and the media use the worst names for their opponents and it has become acceptable. As Hillary Clinton said, we are no longer mere political opponents; we are now enemies. The opposing party now goes beyond mere rhetoric to what certainly appears to be active sabotage of incumbent efforts, either through placing obstacles in the path of getting anything done or invoking the law with frivolous lawsuits before partisan judges. Clearly, the priority is to make the incumbent administration fail, thereby opening the door for the opposing party to get elected. The fact that the country also fails is apparently acceptable. Witness where our faith in fundamental nonpartisan institutions is shaken, specifically the law, the FBI, the intelligence agencies that can collect opposition data for one side, the IRS, on and on. Trust in government institutions is at a low. For what? So a party can keep or return to power? Is it worth running the country into the ground? For votes? The other obvious problem is that every negative weapon used today sets a precedent for the next administration tomorrow, ever escalating the conflict within government to the point where everything grinds to a halt.

Give more careful consideration to running Juul ad I have admired the Post-Dispatch’s work and staff from the moment I began to read it as a young child. After all, it is the deserving winner of 18 Pulitzer Prizes. From the Post-Dispatch, I have come to expect nothing but excellence. For this reason, I was aghast to see the Juul ad in the Wednesday issue. “Juuling” is popular at the high school I attend, and sadly, most teens don’t

realize its health consequences. Since it is a brandnew drug, scientists cannot be sure of all the longterm damage of which “Juuling” is capable. One documented effect is popcorn lung, a condition in which damage to the lungs’ small airways narrows them. Although the featured Juul ad appears to be merely informational about a smoking cessation aid, everyone understands what it really is. It is a new, enticing drug that causes more problems than it was supposedly intended to stop. It still contains nicotine, and it is still harmful. If the Post-Dispatch desires to maintain its honorable reputation, it should more carefully consider its advertisements and their influences. Jacqueline Glenn • Edwardsville

Political forces must intervene for fair trade The concept of free trade relies heavily on the principle of comparative advantage, which encourages the allocation of resources in the most economic way. However, this concept assumes that free markets of all resources exist in the world. Since free markets do not exist entirely today, then political forces must intervene to at least make the trade transactions economically fair. Howard B. Baltz • Town and Country

Missouri legislators should make road safety a priority Missouri roads can be safer — that was the conclusion of the National Safety Council State of Safety report, in which the Show-Me state received an “F” and was ranked 49 out of the 50 states and District of Columbia for road safety. A Post-Dispatch article this month reinforces the need for additional safe driving laws in the state. Four motorcyclists were killed in crashes around the St. Louis area in May, which is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. These tragic deaths were preventable, as were the 118 motorcycle deaths that occurred in Missouri in 2016, the most recent year data is available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Safety for motorcyclists is multifaceted and includes the cyclists, automobile drivers, infrastructure designers, policymakers and others. The Missouri helmet law is vital to providing a basic level of safety, but the state was off track in addressing distracted driving, speeding, seat belt use and other areas of driving safety, according to the State of Safety report. The Road to Zero Coalition, managed by the National Safety Council, is laying out strategies to end roadway deaths in the U.S. by 2050. These strategies take a broad view of the driving landscape and include doubling down on what works (such as helmet laws), advancing life-saving technology in vehicles and infrastructure (such as blind spot monitoring), and prioritizing safety by creating a positive safety culture. We believe the combination of these actions will dramatically lower roadway deaths across the nation. We encourage Missouri legislators to contribute to the Road to Zero mission by making road safety a priority and by passing comprehensive laws that will make the state’s thoroughfares safer. Such laws will not only will help save the lives of motorcyclists, but all drivers on the state’s roads. Deborah A.P. Hersman • Itasca, Ill.

U.S. and China announce new tariffs in escalation of trade war

Trump praises authoritarian rule of Kim, defends summit BY PHILIP RUCKER the Washington Post

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A hardshell lobster (left) and soft-shelled “shedder” look nearly identical prior to being boiled Tuesday at the Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, Maine. A set of retaliatory tariffs released by China includes a plan to tax American lobster exports, potentially jeopardizing one of the biggest markets for the premium seafood. Chinese officials announced the planned lobster tariff Friday along with hundreds of others amid the country’s escalating trade fight with the United States. WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • President Donald

Trump imposed tariffs Friday on $50 billion in Chinese products, signaling his willingness to unwind nearly a quarter century of growing commercial links between the world’s two largest economies unless Beijing agrees to transform the way it conducts business. The decision marked the president’s boldest step so far to implement his “America First” strategy, which he promises will shrink the $811 billion merchandise trade deficit and return lost manufacturing jobs to the United States. But Trump’s aggressive approach is rattling American corporate leaders and his Republican allies in Congress, as Chinese officials show no sign of capitulating. It took little more than an hour for the Ministry of Commerce in Beijing to fire back at the president with a late-night statement pledging to erect trade barriers of the “same scale and the same strength.” China is targeting agricultural goods, cars and energy in a bid to hit the president’s supporters in farm states and the industrial Midwest. Though the president had telegraphed his tariff plans in March, the formal White House announcement amounted to a sharp break with a generation of economic integration backed by Republicans and Democrats. Since the mid-1990s, when China’s entry into the world trading system was first broached, multinational corporations have grown highly dependent upon

omy that has become structurally different in ways that threaten U.S. economic prosperity and national security,” said a senior administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the president’s thinking. Trump appears to be gambling that the imposition of tariffs — even if it triggers a retaliatory spiral — will force China to surrender. Administration officials are confident that China needs the $20 trillion U.S. market more than American businesses need China — and that China has more to lose from a trade war, given that it enjoys a trade surplus. Many China experts doubt the U.S. strategy will succeed. Unlike Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping does not have to worry about unhappy constituents complaining about the costs of a trade war. American businesses that experience supply disruptions and farmers who lose export sales as China retaliates will let their congressional representatives hear about it. Trade measures designed to punish China also will hurt other countries, including U.S. allies, as well as American companies. Many lawmakers, some of whom have been critical of the president, issued public statements backing the tariffs. “The president’s actions on China are on the money,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York. “China is our real trade enemy, and their theft of intellectual property and their refusal to let our companies compete fairly threatens millions of future American jobs.”

Over the past decade, two-way trade between U.S. and Chinese ports has grown by two-thirds to nearly $700 billion annually. “Given China’s unwillingness to capitulate to U.S. demands, it is difficult to see a path to a negotiated settlement that avoids a big hit to trade and investment flows between the two countries,” said Eswar Prasad, former head of the International Monetary Fund’s China division. “Trump’s trade sanctions constitute a significant strike against rising global integration.” There are other signs the two economies may not be as tightly bound in the future as they have been in the past. The administration is expected June 30 to make public new restrictions on Chinese investment in U.S. technology industries. Chinese officials, meanwhile, have mounted a lavishly funded research and development program aimed at reducing their dependence on U.S. companies for key components such as semiconductors. Administration officials say the tariffs are needed to compel China to modify elements of its state-led economic system that disadvantage private companies. Efforts over several years to persuade Beijing to reduce the government’s role in key industries and drop special requirements placed on foreign companies have failed, they said. “We had two systems, which were supposed to converge after China joined the (World Trade Organization) in 2001 into two market economies. What we got was a much larger Chinese nonmarket econ-

OBITUARIES

Beekman, Doreen L. - St. Peters

WA S H I N GTO N • President Donald Trump on Friday complimented Kim Jong Un’s authoritarian rule in North Korea, observing with apparent envy that when the 35-year-old dictator speaks, “his people sit up at attention.” “He’s the head of a country, and I mean he’s the strong head,” Trump told Fox News Channel. “Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.” It was unclear whether Trump was referring to the American people or only to his staff. His interview with “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocey took place along the West Wing driveway, and as the president talked about “my people” he gestured toward the White House. Later, when pressed by a CNN reporter about the comment, Trump claimed it had been a joke. “I’m kidding,” he said. Admonishing the journalist, the president added, “You don’t understand sarcasm.” During his Fox interview, Trump showered praise on Kim and said “it’s great to give him credibility.” He noted that he gave Kim “a very direct number” and instructed him to “call me if he has any difficulties.” “We have a really great relationship for the first time ever,” Trump told Doocey. “No president’s ever had this. So I get hit by these fakes back here” — he pointed dismissively to a group of journalists who were gathered behind him on the driveway — “not all of them, some are phenomenal, but I get hit because I went there, I gave him credibility. I think it’s great to give him credibility.” Trump defended his salute of one of Kim’s generals, footage of which was released Thursday by North Korean state media as propaganda. “I met a general,” Trump said on Fox. “He saluted me and I saluted him back. I guess they’re using that as another soundbyte. You know, I think I’m being respectful to the general.” After his interview with the Fox host, Trump was pressed by reporters about Kim’s record of human rights atrocities and why he had not more forcefully challenged the North Korean dictator. Trump replied that he was trying to cultivate a friendship with Kim to avoid military conflict, telling one reporter, “Because I don’t want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family.” Trump touted the broad agreement he reached with Kim and said the North Koreans already have begun returning the remains of U.S. soldiers missing during the Korean War. However, as of Friday, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency had not received any new remains, according to spokesman Chuck Pritchard. The last time North Korea turned over remains was in 2007. There are 7,697 U.S. troops still unaccounted for from the Korean War, and about 5,300 of those were lost in North Korea. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Trump supports House immigration bills He earlier said he wouldn’t sign a moderate version in the works WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • The White

House said Friday that President Donald Trump supports House legislation that closely tracks his priorities on border security and limiting legal immigration, walking back comments he made on national television rejecting the GOP bill. The reversal came after hours of confusion on Capitol Hill, where Trump’s words roiled an already fragile internal debate between conservative and moderate Republicans in the House who have been trying to find an immigration compromise after months of false starts.

“The president supports both the moderate and the more conservative House immigration bill,” one of the two White House officials said Friday. The other official said Trump misunderstood the question that was posed on “Fox and Friends,” which prompted the president to say that he “certainly wouldn’t sign the more moderate one.” House Republican leaders had teed up action on two immigration measures: a hard-line draft written by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and legislation billed as a compromise between the moderate and conservative factions of the GOP conference.

The draft compromise bill released Thursday was written with White House input, including from top Trump immigration adviser Stephen Miller, and closely hews to the “four pillars” the administration set out in a January framework. Among those pillars are guaranteed funding of $25 billion for a physical wall along the Mexican border; ending the Diversity Visa Program that currently offers admission by lottery to 55,000 immigrants each year; and an end to the system of family-based immigration that distributes visas to the spouses, children and siblings of U.S. citizens. In return, Trump offered a path to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million “dreamers” who came illegally to the U.S. as children. The draft bill ends the Diversity Visa Program and scales back family-based immigration visas,

while offering a path to citizenship to dreamers that is contingent on the provision of border wall funding. After Trump made his remarks Friday morning, House Republicans scrambled to determine whether he had had a change of heart. “House Republicans are not going to take on immigration without the support and endorsement of President Trump,” said Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, the Republican chief deputy whip. In a tweet Friday afternoon, Trump listed his priorities on immigration that hewed closely to the framework of the compromise bill, while never explicitly reversing his opposition.

FALSE ASSERTIONS

Trump continued to falsely assert Friday that his administra-

tion’s practice of separating migrant families at the southern border was a law spearheaded by Democrats. A 2008 anti-trafficking law that requires unaccompanied migrant children to be sent into the care of Health and Human Services — another statute blamed by the administration for the family separation — was passed unanimously by Congress and signed into law by then-President George W. Bush, a Republican. “The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda,” the president said in a tweet. House Democrats are expected to oppose the GOP compromise bill. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Friday that the measure is “very, very bad, but apparently not bad enough for President Trump.”

conduct by the adult. Under a “zero tolerance” policy announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Department of Homeland Security officials are now referring all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are. Sessions announced the effort April 6, and Homeland Security began stepping up referrals in early May, effectively putting the policy into action. Since then, stories of weeping children torn from the arms of their frightened parents have flooded the media and the policy has been widely criticized by church groups, politicians and children’s advocates who say it is inhumane. A battle in Congress is brewing in part over the issue. Some immigrant advocates have said women were being separated from their infants — a charge Homeland Security and Justice officials flatly denied. They also said the children were being well cared for and disputed reports of disorder and mistreatment at the border. The new figures are for people who tried to enter the U.S. between official border crossings. Asylum-seekers who go directly to official crossings are not separated from their families, except in specific circumstances — such as if officials can’t confirm the relationship between the minors and adults, if the safety of the children is in question, or if the adult is being prosecuted. There were an additional 38 minors separated at ports of entry in May through June 6. There were more than 55 in April and a high of 64 in March, according to the figures. A number of lawmakers from both parties, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., have said in recent days that they disagree with the policy of separating children from parents. During a briefing Friday on the separation figures, Home-

WORLD DIGEST Trump again blames Obama for Crimea President Donald Trump again blamed former president Barack Obama for the Russian annexation of Crimea, saying Obama allowed it to happen when he “gave away” respect for the United States. “President Obama lost Crimea because President Putin didn’t respect President Obama,” Trump said during an impromptu news conference outside the White House. He repeated his point about Obama and the 2014 invasion and annexation from Ukraine several times. Obama “gave away” U.S. credibility when he did not follow through with threatened airstrikes against Syria, Trump said, adding that he had not made the same error. Trump said he may meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the summer. The U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman is attempting to set up such a meeting, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month. The two leaders have not spoken recently, Trump said last week. The Kremlin said Friday that a summit is possible in the summer. Soccer fans protest Iranian women ban • Iranian fans at the national team’s first game at the World Cup unfurled a banner

land Security officials said their policy was not family separation but rather “100 percent prosecution.” “Either we choose to enforce the law, or we choose to ignore it, and this administration has made it clear we’re not going to ignore the law any longer,” one official said. In the past, parents were often released pending court appearances; the practice and other alternatives to detention meant immigrants were “incentivized to break the law,” the official said. The International Rescue Committee, a humanitarian aid group, released a statement Friday saying, “A policy of willing cruelty to those people, and using young sons and daughters as pawns, shatters America’s strong foundation of humanitarian sensibility and family values.”

The reason for the commotion wasn’t immediately clear as three stewards moved across to where the banner was, on the bottom row near to one of the goals. Macron, Conte will work together on migration • French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte agreed Friday to work together to pursue changes to the European Union’s migration rules, finding common ground after the issue created a rift between their countries. The two leaders said during a joint news conference that EU regulations requiring asylumseekers to apply in the first country they enter and remain there while their cases are processed were not working. Macron said the policy and others have left Italy, usually the first European country reached on the busy migration route across the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa, without the support that

BIBLE REMARKS SLAMMED

Meanwhile, several prominent members of the black clergy on Friday criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions for using the Bible to justify separating the immigrant children from parents. On Thursday, Sessions had cited the Bible in defending the policy, arguing the recent criticisms were not “fair or logical and some are contrary to law.” “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” he said. The Council of Bishops of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, along with the Revs. Jesse Jackson and William Barber, in separate statements, called Sessions’ use of biblical scripture incorrect. “The Bible does not justify discrimination masked as racism, sexism, economic inequality, oppression or the abuse of

Slovenian lawmakers set to convene after election • Slovenian lawmakers will convene next week for the first time since an election earlier this month that saw a right-wing party make strong gains. President Borut Pahor on Friday scheduled the inaugural session of Slovenia’s newly elected parliament for June 22, paving the way for the formation of a future government. None of the parties won an outright majority in the 90-member assembly in the June 3 vote, meaning that a coalition government has to be formed. The right-wing Slovenian Democratic Party of former Prime Minister Janez Jansa secured 25 seats after winning most votes at the election. But other, moderate groups have ruled out a coalition with Jansa and are more likely to form an alliance of their own. Jansa has allied with Hungary’s anti-immigrant prime minister, Viktor Orban. Merkel ‘realistic’ about upping NATO spending • Chancellor Angela Merkel says Germany is committed to the NATO target of spending 2 percent of a country’s gross domestic product on defense but is realistic about reaching it.

The bishops called for Ryan and other Republican lawmakers to reprimand Sessions. “Why are Black and Brown immigrants living in America with fear that the American dream has become a nightmare for the least, the last, and left out?” the AME clergy said in a statement. “Twisting the word of God in defense of immoral practices was a tactic used to justify keeping Black people in chattel slavery, committing genocide against Native Americans and segregating people under Jim Crow,” said Barber and Liz Theoharis, co-chairs of the Poor People’s Campaign, in a separate statement. The Los Angeles Times contributed to this report.

General Jens Stoltenberg that “sometimes this may seem too slow but things are going in the right direction.” NATO members agreed in 2014 to “move toward the 2 percent guideline within a decade.” Merkel said Berlin is complying with that, and added: “We accept this target, but we are also giving realistic information.” President Donald Trump has criticized Germany for falling short. U.S. objects to sentences in Maldives • The United States said it is dismayed by the prison sentences given to an ex-Maldivian president and two Supreme Court judges and urged the increasingly authoritarian government to uphold the rule of law. A Maldives court sentenced ex-President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom to one year, seven months and six days in prison on Wednesday for failing to hand over his mobile phone to investigators after he was accused of plotting to overthrow the government of his half brother, who has declared a state of emergency and cracked down on critics. Two Supreme Court judges who were arrested with Gayoom were given the same sentences for the same offense. From news services

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN • A U.S. drone strike in northeastern Kunar province killed Pakistan Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah, the insurgent leader who ordered the assassination of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, an Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman said Friday. In a telephone interview, Mohammad Radmanish said Fazlullah and two other insurgents were killed early Thursday morning, just hours before Afghanistan’s Taliban began a three-day cease-fire to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. The three-day holiday follows the end of Islam’s holy month of Ramadan when devout adherents fast from sunrise to sunset. However, Sakhi Mashwani, a Parliamentarian from Kunar province, told the Associated Press that Fazlullah, along with five other insurgents, died when the strike slammed into the vehicle in which they were driving. A U.S. official said the U.S. believes that it is likely the strike killed Fazlullah, but efforts are ongoing to confirm his death. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss preliminary information. According to a statement attributed to U.S. Forces-Afghanistan spokesman Lt. Col Martin O’Donnell, the U.S. carried out a “counterterrorism strike” Thursday in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan targeting “a senior leader of a designated terrorist organization.” The statement did not say whether the strike had killed anyone and did not identify Fazlullah as the target. However, the statement did note that the drone attack did not violate a cease-fire announcement made June 7 by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. The Taliban’s promise of a temporary truce came on Monday. It was Yousafzai’s open call for girls’ education and criticism of the Taliban that infuriated Fazlullah. She was just 14 when she survived the assassination attempt in 2012. Her return to her hometown earlier this year seemed a particular triumph as it was also to open a school funded by a charity she established to promote girls’ education globally. She has often said that Fazlullah’s attempts to silence her backfired and instead he amplified her voice around the world. A ruthless leader, Fazlullah ordered the bombing and beheadings of dozens of opponents when his band of insurgents controlled Pakistan’s picturesque Swat Valley from 2007 until a massive military operation routed them in 2009. In Yousafzai’s hometown of Mingora in the Swat Valley, residents welcomed reports of Fazlullah’s death with one resident saying many feared he would return one day to re-impose his violent rule. “We witnessed the brutality of the Taliban in Swat when Fazlullah and his men were present here and we are happy to know that he has gone to hell,” said Idrees Khan, a member of a local elders peace committee. “People in Swat will feel safer after the killing of Fazlullah.”

Entering Friday, no team in baseball had hit fewer than the Cubs’ six home runs this month. They had moved up six spots in the standings by the end of the evening. The Cardinals have built so much of their offense around home runs that they tidied up the score late with a handful of solo home runs. Tommy Pham hit his first homer in 18 games and his first extra base hit since May 26 in the eighth inning against the Cubs’ big-lead bullpen. Marcell Ozuna also had a homer, as did Matt Carpenter. That has become the calling card of Cardinals hitters.

Taken alone the game could be dismissed as a dud, a blip, one of those nights, but this mess came shortly after the Cardinals lost a series to the last-

Blues would like Hutton back but know he’ll test the market BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

With NHL free agency just around the corner, the Blues continue to have discussions with goalie Carter Hutton about a new contract. But it remains clear that Hutton wants to see what’s out there as an unrestricted free agent. “Yeah, I don’t blame him,” general manager Doug Armstrong said. “We’ve had conversations. He understands that we’d like him to come back. I also understand that he had his career-best year at the proper time for him as an unrestricted free agent.

“He wants to maximize that and I certainly respect that. At the end of the day, he’s a businessman that has to do what’s best for his family.” Hutton, 32, led the league in both goals-against average (2.09) and save percentage (.931) among goalies who appeared in more than 18 games. Despite missing time with foot and neck injuries, he appeared in 32 games and posted a 177-3 record. “I told him I’d love to have him back,” Armstrong said. “We’ve talked contract and talked concepts.”

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff throws a ball to construction workers while visiting the team’s new stadium construction site Thursday in Inglewood, Calif.

Players get off early from minicamp for a tour of the site ASSOCIATED PRESS

After Jared Goff tipped back his hard hat and swung his arm a few times to get loose, he grabbed a football and tossed a high-arching spiral straight into the arms of an excited construction worker on an upper deck. The Los Angeles Rams’ franchise quarterback has already completed his first few passes inside his team’s palatial new stadium two years before it opens in Inglewood, Calif. Although the multibilliondollar new home of the Rams and Chargers is currently a dusty construction site with a whirlwind of activity, Goff and his teammates feel confident it will be well worth the wait after getting their first tour Thursday. “Even flying over it, you can’t truly understand how big it’s going to be until you get down here and look at it,” Goff said, gazing wide-eyed from the future playing field way up to the top reaches of the arena. “It’s exciting. You hope the years go by fast.” Rams coach Sean McVay canceled the final practice of the defending NFC West champions’ mandatory minicamp and loaded his players and assistants onto buses for a drive from Thousand Oaks to Inglewood. In safety vests and personalized blue hard hats complete with Rams horns, they got an up-close look at the progress on owner Stan Kroenke’s stadium project, now a steel-and-concrete shell rising out of a massive hole dug at ground level on the former site of the Hollywood Park racetrack. This stadium project is widely thought to be the most complicated and most expensive in sports history, and the main 70,240-seat arena is on track to open in the summer of 2020. When the surrounding complex eventually opens its shops, office buildings and innumerable additional features, the Rams and Chargers will be working in a new Los Angeles-area landmark. “It’s amazing to see all the great work that they’re putting in for us to come out here and hopefully

have lots of success and wins in the years to come,” said Ndamukong Suh, the Rams’ new defensive tackle. “Ultimate respect for all the hard work that’s going in at this stage. I can imagine how much hard work and organization the GCs (general contractors) have to deal with. More power to them.” Suh was a construction management major at Nebraska, so he took a particular interest in the staggering number of workers and companies combining their efforts to complete the labyrinthine project in time for its two teams to play the 2020 season. The stadium also will host Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 6, 2022, and college football’s national championship playoff game in January 2023. The stadium intends to bid heavily for the next available Super Bowl as well, pursuing the game for 2026 or 2027. Other events arriving in the next decade alone include expected matches for the 2026 World Cup and the opening ceremony at the 2028 Olympics. The stadium has a clear roof in sunny Southern California partly because of its intention to host a men’s Final Four, which hasn’t been held in California since 1975. But the stadium’s main tenants are Los Angeles’ two NFL teams, and they can already sense a brewing home-field advantage in this remarkable setting. The project’s proximity to Los Angeles’ main airport required extensive excavation to sink the playing field deep under normal ground level, already lending a momentous, larger-than-life feel to the stadium in its half-completed state.

season in 1987. He dealt with neurological problems after his career. Fahnhorst was a second-round draft choice in 1974 out of Minnesota. Irving, Stephenson suspended • Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, the second straight year the pass rusher is facing a ban to start the season. Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Donald Stephenson was suspended two games without pay by the NFL for violating its substance-abuse policy. Cardinals sign WR Little • Arizona signed wide receiver Greg Little to a one-year contract after he participated in this week’s minicamp on a tryout basis. Little hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2014. He was a second-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns out of North Carolina in 2011. In 54 career NFL games, 42 as a starter, he has caught 161 passes for 1,890 yards and eight touchdowns for the Browns (2011-13) and Cincinnati (2014). He was released by Buffalo at the end of the 2016 preseason. Arizona also released linebacker Frank Ginda and wide receiver Cobi Hamilton.

Former 49er Fahnhorst dies • Keith Fahnhorst, a star tackle for the San Francisco 49ers who won two Super Bowl titles in the 1980s, has died. He was 66. He died Tuesday, the 49ers said Friday. No cause was given. Fahnhorst won two Super Bowls in his 14 seasons with the franchise and was an All-Pro in 1984. He started 160 of the 193 games in which he appeared from 1974-87. Only seven more players and one offensive lineman, Len Rohde, appeared in more games for the 49ers. Fahnhorst retired because of a neck injury that caused him to miss nine games during his last

Winslow Jr. pleads not guilty • Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was jailed without bail Friday in Vista, Calif., after pleading not guilty to multiple counts of kidnapping, rape and other charges. The 34-year-old Winslow was ordered to return to San Diego County Superior Court on June 25 for a preliminary hearing. If convicted, Winslow could face a maximum sentence of life in prison. Prosecutors say Winslow began a crime spree last March that included rapes, kidnappings, indecent exposure and burglary and continued until just before his arrest this week. The son of Hall of Fame tight end and St. Louisan Kellen Winslow, the younger Winslow spent 10 seasons in the NFL from 200413 with Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New England and the New York Jets.

DIGEST Leonard wants trade from Spurs, source says Kawhi Leonard’s time with the San Antonio Spurs may soon be over. A person familiar with the situation says Leonard has told the Spurs that he would like to be traded this summer, the clearest sign yet that the relationship between the team and the All-Star is in disrepair. The person said Leonard has decided that he is “unhappy with the situation” in San Antonio. The person spoke with The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because neither the player nor the team commented publicly. Because of a leg injury, Leonard played in only nine game with the Spurs this past season. In the

2016-17 season, he averaged a career-best 25.5 points and was third in the MVP voting. Leonard is due just over $20 million next season and can become a free agent in the summer of 2019. It’s unclear if the Spurs will go ahead and try to trade him, or if the team will try to patch things up with the 2014 NBA Finals MVP and two-time NBA defensive player of the year. (AP)

Ronaldo puts up a hat trick

WORLD CUP NOTEBOOK

Low attendance marks Egypt game More than 5,000 people with tickets skipped Uruguay’s 1-0 win over Egypt in Yekaterinburg on Friday, the worst-attended World Cup game in eight years. FIFA said it is investigating why, with “no-shows” one of the factors. Pockets of orange seats were clearly visible in the lower tiers of the Yekaterinburg Arena, which has a 33,061 capacity for World Cup games. The temporary stands behind the goals for Russian fans appeared to be fuller. FIFA said it allocated 32,278 tickets and the official attendance was 27,015 for the 5 p.m. kickoff. Egypt forward Mohamed Salah didn’t play in the game because of a shoulder injury. “There were some bald spots and it wasn’t very pleasant,” regional sports minister Leonid Rapoport told Russia’s state news agency. “We thought Salah would play.”(AP)

No chickens allowed • Apparently Nigeria soccer fans are accustomed to bringing live chickens to games for good luck. And, sensing World Cup staff might have an issue with that, they asked Russian officials if their fowl friends could accompany them to matches of the Nigerian national team (also known as the Super Eagles). Russian officials unsurprisingly said no. No chickens allowed. “Fans from Nigeria asked if it’s possible to go to the stadium with a chicken — it’s their symbol. We told them that it is not possible,” Andrei Ermak, Kaliningrad’s minister of culture, told the Interfax News Agency. If Nigeria fans want to take their chickens elsewhere in the city to root on their Super Eagles, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem, Ermak added. “We will of course advise them where chickens can be taken,” he said.

Cristiano Ronaldo used the World Cup to show everyone he’s the GOAT. Ronaldo rubbed his chin after scoring minutes into Portugal’s opener against Spain, implying he is the Greatest of All Time. Then he scored two more goals, including a perfectly placed 88th-minute free kick that gave his team a 3-3 draw Friday in Sochi, Russia. Spain, the 2010 World Cup champion, dominated much of the match but was unable to contain Ronaldo. “When I play against a player like Ronaldo, these things can happen,” newly appointed Spain coach Fernando Hierro said. “It’s very fortunate for whatever team has Cristiano Ronaldo.” Ronaldo had twice given European champion Portugal the lead with first-half goals at Fisht Stadium, but Diego Costa equalized with a goal in each half. Nacho Fernandez then put the Spanish ahead with a one-timer from outside the area in the Group B match. Ronaldo became the fourth player to score in four World Cups, joining Pele, Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler. He also became the first Portuguese player to appear in four World Cups, and at 33 became the oldest player to score a hat trick in tournament history. He used his first goal to send a message to the world in an apparent reaction to Adidas’ “GOAT” promotion with Lionel Messi, featuring the Argentine with a real goat. Ronaldo and Messi have split the last 10 player of the year awards. “I’ve said it so many times, Cristiano is the best in the world,” Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.

Guerrero to play for Peru • The mere presence of striker Paolo Guerrero on Peru’s national team could have been a major distraction. Any Peruvian success in Russia might have been tainted if opponents made a fuss that Guerrero, Peru’s all-time leading scorer, had no business playing in the World Cup after failing a drug test last year. Instead, the situation has been largely diffused by a show of solidarity among players in and outside of Peru, including the captains of the other teams in Group C — France, Denmark and Australia — advocating that he be allowed to play.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring Portugal’s second goal Friday.

Ronaldo played down his sixth international hat trick. “To me, the most important (thing) is to highlight what the team has done,” Ronaldo said. Spain looked to have overcome its dramatic coaching change on the eve of the tournament, but Ronaldo curled a late shot from about 25 yards over the wall. The ball went into the top corner as Spain goalkeeper David de Gea watched. The Spanish federation fired coach Julen Lopetegui for accepting a job with Real Madrid without letting it know in advance. Hierro, a former player acting as Spain’s sporting director, replaced Lopetegui and was on the bench despite no significant previous coaching experience. “It wasn’t an easy situation. When you have this staff and these young players, they make it much easier,” Hierro said. It was an exciting start to one of the group-stage’s most anticipated matches, and it didn’t take long before Ronaldo struck first. Ronaldo made a nice stepover move to get past Fernandez, his Real Madrid teammate, and was fouled at the edge of the area. He then calmly sent his shot to the right corner as De Gea went the

other way. As Ronaldo returned to midfield for the restart, he and Fernandez appeared to exchange words, and the Portuguese star smiled. Portugal threatened on counterattacks as Spain struggled to get near Rui Patricio’s goal, but a great long pass by Sergio Busquets allowed Costa to even the match. The striker collided with Pepe and used several neat moves to clear other defenders before firing a low shot into the corner from inside the area. Portugal loudly complained Costa had fouled Pepe, and replays showed there was contact by the Spaniard’s arm with Pepe’s body. Referee Gianluca Rocchi allowed the play to continue. Portugal wanted the play to be reviewed, and Rocchi at one point put a hand to his ear, apparently indicating the assistant referees didn’t see a clear error. Goal-line technology came into play a few moments later when a Francisco “Isco” Alarcon’s shot struck the crossbar and dropped straight down on the goal line. After Isco complained, Rocchi pointed to his watch, which receives goal confirmations. Ronaldo’s second goal came after a blunder by De Gea, who let

So-called driverless cars are a hot topic these days. A basic, elemental bill anticipating and addressing their manufacture and use already has passed the U.S. House of Representatives; much of the required technology — Intelligent Cruise Control, autonomous braking, pedestrian recognition — already is here, while more advanced tech is being developed; Car and Driver magazine’s November issue devotes a 31-page special section to exploring the topic of “driverless cars.” Lots to ponder. But, we got the biggest kick out of Jay Leno’s take: “I see driverless cars now,” said the former Tonight Show host and noted car buff, “only people are at the wheel! They’re texting or talking (on a cell phone) ... I would rather have a computer driving than those idiots ... “ So, yeah, that’s an argument in favor of “driverless cars.” Here’s an argument in opposition: the BMW 230i. Two minutes behind the wheel and you won’t want to relinquish it to another human, never mind GPS sensors, techy algorithms and computer programs. Available as the 230i and M240i in both coupe and convertible form, this guy can be equipped with rear or all-wheel drive. We sampled a rear-drive 2017 230i coupe. However, in the wake of 2017’s major changes — new engines and, as a result, new names (228i becomes 230i, and M235i becomes M240i)

— 2018 alterations are slight: interior tweaks, LED exterior lighting upgrades, optionspackage equipment shuff ling. The 2018 M240i remains powered by a 335-hp turbocharged straight six, while our 230i coupe was motivated by a 248-hp turbo four. In both, an eight-speed automatic is standard, but — yay, BMW! — a six-speed manual remains a no-cost option. We had the stick and found shaking hands

Uruguay 1, Egypt 0 • Jose Gimenez came to Uruguay’s rescue by scoring the lone goal in a victory over Egypt in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The Uruguay defender jumped in the area and headed home a free kick late in the 89th minute. Russia leads Group A on goal difference after beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday in the tournament’s opening match. Uruguay is now second, also with three points. Egypt forward Mohamed Salah was on the bench for his country’s first World Cup match since 1990 after injuring a shoulder while playing for Liverpool in last month’s Champions League final. Salah was the Premier League’s player of the season after scoring a league-leading 32 goals, with 44 in all competitions. Uruguay won its opening match at the tournament for the first time since 1970.

Iran 1, Morocco 0 • Aziz Bouhaddouz headed a free kick into his own net in the fifth minute of injury time to gift Iran a victory over Morocco in St. Petersburg, Russia. Only on the field as a 77th-minute substitute, the Morocco striker dived to reach a curling cross from the left but headed the ball past goalkeeper Monir El Kajoui. There was an explosion of joy among the Iran squad, with coaching staff and substitutes sprinting onto the field and jumping for joy. It was Iran’s second win in 13 matches at the World Cup, and Asia’s first since the 2010 tournament in South Africa. With Spain and Portugal the other teams in Group B, Friday’s match in St. Petersburg was regarded as a must-win game for the two outsiders.

Corey Kluber had a rare rocky performance, lasting just five innings and losing for the first time in seven starts as Kyle Gibson outpitched the Cy Young winner and Brian Dozier hit a two-run homer to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 6-3 win in Cleveland on Friday night. Kluber (10-3) allowed a homer on his fourth pitch of the game to Eddie Rosario and was pulled after throwing just 65 pitches by manager Terry Francona. It was the shortest outing this season for the All-Star, who came in 5-0 with a 0.76 ERA against AL Central teams and was riding several other impressive streaks. Yankees 5, Rays 0 • Jonathan Loaisiga allowed three hits over five innings to win his major league debut, and New York beat visiting Tampa Bay. Didi Gregorius homered off ex-Yankee Nathan Eovaldi, and Gary Sanchez had a three-run double in the eighth. New York improved the best record in the majors to 45-20. The 23-year-old Loalsiga, from Nicaragua, had never pitched above Double-A before being called up earlier in the day. Astros 7, Royals 3 • Evan Gattis hit a go-ahead grand slam, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa also went deep and Houston won in Kansas City for its ninth in a row.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

Pirates 3, Reds 2 • Chad Kuhl pitched six solid innings to win for the first time in more than a month, and host Pittsburgh edged Cincinnati. The Reds lost despite outhitting the Pirates 7-5. They were 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10. Padres 9, Braves 3 • Hunter Renfroe hit a go-ahead, two-run single in San Diego’s five-run seventh inning, Freddy Galvis had a threerun homer and went five for five, and the Padres won in Atlanta. Freddie Freeman’s 15th homer gave Atlanta a 3-2 lead in the fifth. Jose Pirela hit a two-run homer for San Diego in the first. Home plate umpire Joe West ejected Padres manager Andy Green in the fourth for arguing West’s changed call on an apparent strikeout by Ozzie Albies. Brewers 13, Phillies 2 • Brent Suter drove in two runs and pitched a seasonhigh seven innings, Christian Yelich, Hernan Perez and Jesus Aguilar homered and NL Central-leading Milwaukee beat Jake Arrieta and visiting Philadelphia.

INTERLEAGUE

Marlins 2, Orioles 0 • Jose Urena allowed three hits over eight innings, Lewis Brinson tripled twice and Miami won in Baltimore to stretch the Orioles’ losing streak to a season-high eight games. Blue Jays 6, Nationals 5 • Yangervis Solarte homered from both sides of the plate, Devon Travis also connected and Toronto beat visiting Washington for its fifth straight home victory. Rockies 9, Rangers 5 • Ian Desmond homered twice and Trevor Story had a pair of RBI hits as Colorado overcame a five-run deficit to win in Texas. Associated Press

This Date In Baseball Compiled By PAUL MONTELLA June 16 1916: Tom Hughes of the Boston Braves pitched a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over Pittsburgh Pirates. 1938: Jimmie Foxx didn’t get a chance to hit as the St. Louis Browns walked him six straight times. The Boston Red Sox won anyway, 12-8. 1953: The St. Louis Browns beat New York 3-1 to break the Yankees’ 18-game winning streak and end their 14-game losing streak. 1957: Relief pitcher Dixie Howell hit two home runs in the 3 2-3 innings he pitched to lead the Chicago White Sox to an 8-6 victory in the second game of a doubleheader against the Washington Senators. 1971: The Oakland Athletics hit five solo home runs in a 5-1 win over the Washington Senators. Mike Epstein and Joe Rudi had a pair homers and Dave Duncan one. Epstein’s home runes came in his first two at-bats to give him homers in four straight at-bats over two games. 1978: After three ninth-inning near misses, Tom Seaver threw the first no-hitter of his 12-year career as the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0. Seaver struck out three and walked three. 1991: Otis Nixon of Atlanta stole six bases against Montreal to set a modern National League record and tie the major league record set by Eddie Collins of the Philadelphia A’s in 1912. Montreal won the game 7-6. 1992: Boston’s Mark Reardon became baseball’s all-time save leader when he closed out a 1-0 win over the New York Yankees. Reardon logged his 342nd save to pass Rollie Fingers. 2001: John Olerud went 4-for-5 and hit for the cycle as Seattle beat the San Diego Padres 9-2. He hit a homer in the ninth to complete the cycle. 2009: The San Diego Padres set a major league record with their 12th straight loss in interleague play when they fell 5-0 to Seattle. 2012: Baltimore’s Jason Hammel pitched a one-hitter for his first career shutout and the Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0. He struck out eight and walked two and allowed a two-out single to Jason Heyward in the seventh inning. 2012: Ervin Santana pitched a one-hitter to lead the Los Angeles Angels to 2-0 win over Arizona. Santana retired the first 20 batters of the game before allowing a two-out single to Justin Upton in the seventh. Upton and pinch-hitter Miguel Montero, who drew a ninth-inning walk, were the only Diamondbacks to reach base. 2015: Brock Holt became the first Boston player to hit for the cycle since 1996 and the Red Sox slugged their way out to a 9-4 victory over Atlanta. 2015: Manny Machado and Chris Parmelee each hit two of an Orioles-record eight home runs, and Baltimore pounded woeful Philadelphia 19-3. The eight home runs were the most by the Orioles since their move from St. Louis in 1954. Today’s birthdays: Justin Haley 27; Kelby Tomlinson 28.

The 23-year-old Loalsiga had never pitched above Double-A before being called up Friday. Astros 7, Royals 3 • Evan Gattis hit a go-ahead grand slam, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa also went deep and Houston won in Kansas City for its ninth in a row. Tigers 4, White Sox 3 • John Hicks homered and scored the go-ahead run on a fielder’s choice in the eighth inning as Detroit won in Chicago. Angels 8, Athletics 4 • Ian Kinsler homered and drew a bases-loaded walk, Mike Trout had three hits and a sacrifice fly, and Los Angeles won in Oakland.

NOTEBOOK

Cards expect Pujols to visit in ’19 Plan calls for Angels to be here for 3 games next June BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

Since Albert Pujols’ sudden departure as a free agent after the 2011 World Series championship, the Cardinals have waited for a turn of the schedule to give them a chance to host Pujols and give him a moment, at Busch Stadium, like so many other former Cardinals have had. They’ll get a whole weekend to do so in 2019. Pujols’ Los Angeles Angels are scheduled to make an interleague visit to St. Louis in June 2019 for a three-game series, according to an official aware of the Cardinals’ wishes who has also seen a close-to-final version of the 2019 schedule. As part of the interleague rotation, the Cardinals and other National League Central clubs will play teams from the American League West. In 2013 and 2016, the Cardinals visited Anaheim, Calif., to face Pujols and the Angels — despite Major League Baseball assuring the Cardinals of an Angels visit in 2016. For 2019, the Cardinals made clear their wish to have Pujols return to his first home. Since he left as a free agent for a 10-year contract, Pujols has reached 600 career home runs and collected his 3,000th career hit this season. He’s one of four players with those totals, joining Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez. Pujols, who will be 39 next year, told the Post-Dispatch in 2016 that he wanted a chance to play again at Busch. “I would love to get back to St. Louis, to play a game there,” he said as the Cardinals visited him. “I always tell people I came there a little boy and I left there a grown man. It would be pretty emotional, too. I’m a pretty emotional guy. … It would be important when that moment comes.”

LEONE ‘TURNS CORNER’

Reliever Dominic Leone, whose season has been in question because of nerve trouble in his right arm and biceps, met with a specialist this past week and received encouraging news. Leone’s nerve injury has started to show signs of rejuvenation and recovery. “He’s turned the corner from uncertainty to progressing in the right direction,” general manager Michael Girsch said. “It’s going to be a process.”

Leone went on the disabled list May 5, and he was moved eventually to the 60-day disabled list because of the longevity of his injury. Acquired from Toronto, the 26-year-old righthander started the season as the Cardinals’ stand-in closer and went 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA in 15 games. When his biceps became an issue, the question for Leone was whether he would pitch again this season for the Cardinals. Now it’s when, Girsch said. Leone has had some atrophying of his arm strength and will need a lengthy program to get back to full health.

BOWMAN BACK

With the return of Matt Bowman on Friday from a blisters issue that put him on the disabled list, the Cardinals had a stocked and refreshed bullpen for the first time in at least a week, but sorting out roles was still what manager Mike Matheny has long called “a work in progress.” “We’ve been pushing these guys pretty hard,” the manager said. “It seems like it’s been multiple games in a row where we’ve had multiple players who were untouchable that night. That creates a challenge. That could end up changing in a hurry if we go one extra-inning game (or) you go a couple of really tight, knock-down, drag-outs, and you put a lot of work on them.”

To make room for Bowman on the active roster the Cardinals optioned Daniel Poncedeleon to Class AAA Memphis. He’s the second pitcher this season and third player overall to come to the majors for a promotion and not get an appearance. Austin Gomber, another, has returned in a prominent role. Bowman’s return as a “bridge” reliever to Jordan Hicks and closer Bud Norris could help free Gomber, a lefty, for his assignments as a targeted specialist vs. the Cubs’ lefthanded hitters like Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward. Brett Cecil is the only other active lefty, though several righthanders have had better success against lefthanded batters than him. “I obviously feel good,” Bowman said. “I’m hoping we can make the playoffs, and I’m a little bit fresher. We’ve had a lot of guys on the DL. It stinks now. At some point, there could be some silver lining to that.”

INJURY UPDATES

Shortstop Paul DeJong (fractured finger) will have a scan taken of the joint Saturday to determine if he can begin taking batting practice. DeJong has been swinging a bat, tracking pitches, and taking grounders, but he has not been cleared to test the fractured digit by making contact with the bat. Once cleared, he’ll advance as tolerated and stride toward a rehab assignment with a minor-league affiliate. Girsch said DeJong’s recovery could “move quickly” when cleared. Adam Wainwright (elbow) received a platelet-rich plasma injection near his right elbow this past week and has been prescribed several days of rest to allow the treatment to take root and begin to promote healing in the ailing joint. Wainwright is still several weeks away from returning to a throwing program. Elsewhere: Reliever Greg Holland (hip) had his appearance at Class AA Springfield rained out Thursday night, so he’ll attempt to pitch back-to-back games Friday and Saturday. The righthander will be evaluated based on his results after those two appearances and could return to a minor-league affiliate at that point for another set of innings. Luke Gregerson (knee surgery) and Tyler Lyons (elbow) will begin throwing programs next week while the team takes a road trip to Philadelphia and Milwaukee.

Cubs pound long homers in victory CARDINALS • FROM B1

They homer, but they don’t sustain pressure. Jon Lester allowed two runs in his six innings against the Cardinals on Friday, and both of the runs came on solo homers. He allowed three other hits, all singles. One of them did not leave the infield, and it took a replay challenge for Wacha to get credit for outrunning the throw to first. The offense the Cubs flaunted remains the offense the Cardinals believe they could have — and 67 games in don’t. “If we keep struggling to score runs, obviously our offense isn’t enough,” general manager Michael Girsch said. “Guys have good halves and bad halves all the time. I still think this set of players can absolutely be enough (offense). Whether it will be or not, I don’t know. It absolutely can be.” Lester (8-2) danced around a walk and an error when it was still a scoreless tie. In the third inning, Wacha’s single put a runner on base, and a pickoff

by the Cubs’ catcher took a runner off the base to unplug that inning for the Cardinals. The Cubs were leading 5-0 in the fourth when Ozuna connected for a rocketed homer, so Lester had some cushion. In his career, Wacha (82) has had his difficulties with the Cubs. The loss Friday was the 10th time in his career that he’s allowed six or more runs, and four of those games have come against the Cubs. His career high for runs allowed in a start was eight before Friday’s game, and that came when the Cubs thumped him for eight runs (all earned) in four innings on May 24, 2016. The run that scored after Wacha had left the game in the middle of the fifth and watched Michael Mayers try to wiggle free made Friday’s game a new career high for runs allowed, at nine. Five came in the fifth inning. Three came on one of the longest home runs in Busch III history. The Cubs didn’t do much against Wacha until

their second time through the order, and then they started gobbling up offense in bunches. Two home runs conjured a quick 3-0 lead for the Cubs in the third inning. Ian Happ opened the inning with a home run, and Kris Bryant hinted at homers to come with a 418-foot blast past the Cubs’ bullpen in left field. An error complicated the fourth inning and allowed a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly to become two more runs against Wacha and add to what already seemed an insurmountable lead. This is where two trends split. For more than a month, Wacha had ascended to the front of the Cardinals’ rotation, reaching toward the standard set by Adam Wainwright and performing like expectations set for Carlos Martinez. Wacha had won eight consecutive decisions, and during May he allowed only eight earned runs in 35 2/3 innings. All-Star voting for pitchers started in the Cardinals clubhouse on Friday

Cardinals first baseman Luke Voit is unable to catch a throw from shortstop Yairo Munoz as Chicago’s Javier Baez reaches safely with a single in the fourth inning.

and is going on all around baseball. Wacha allowed the same amount of runs in four innings Friday. It took a hairpin turn by another trend to make that happen. Entering Friday’s game, the Cubs had hit almost as many home runs as a team (six) as Cardinals first baseman Jose Martinez had by himself (five) this month. Martinez went on paternity leave for the weekend, and the Cardinals have called on Luke

Voit to start at first base in his absence. The Cubs, to fix their power problem, just finally saw the usual suspects flex. Only Anthony Rizzo didn’t join the show of force, and he had three hits and four times on base by the end of the sixth inning. Rizzo’s ground-rule double opened the fifth inning, and it was promptly followed by a walk to catcher Willson Contreras. Enter Schwarber. The outfielder thun-

dered into this rivalry as a rookie with a home run that became somewhat legendary at Wrigley Field. It was far enough that it never came down. It landed atop the scoreboard in right field at the Friendly Confines, and there it remained under a clear, plastic lid. The scoreboard got in the way of the distance that postseason homer could have had. Nothing did Friday night as Schwarber added one of the longest home runs in Busch III history to his place in the rivalry. With two runners on base and his game long since listing, Wacha flipped a curveball that arrived in the strike zone at 76 mph. It was up. Then it was up, up and away. Schwarber’s shot to s t ra i g h ta wa y c e n te r reached the concrete walkway above the batter’s eye at Busch Stadium. It was estimated to have traveled 465 feet – the thirdlongest by an opponent at Busch III, which opened in 2006. Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

Cards expect Pujols to visit in ’19 Plan calls for Angels to be here for 3 games next June BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

Since Albert Pujols’ sudden departure as a free agent after the 2011 World Series championship, the Cardinals have waited for a turn of the schedule to give them a chance to host Pujols and give him a moment, at Busch Stadium, like so many other former Cardinals have had. They’ll get a whole weekend to do so in 2019. Pujols’ Los Angeles Angels are scheduled to make an interleague visit to St. Louis in June 2019 for a three-game series, according to an official aware of the Cardinals’ wishes who has also seen a close-to-final version of the 2019 schedule. As part of the interleague rotation, the Cardinals and other National League Central clubs will play teams from the American League West. In 2013 and 2016, the Cardinals visited Anaheim, Calif., to face Pujols and the Angels — despite Major League Baseball assuring the Cardinals of an Angels visit in 2016. For 2019, the Cardinals made clear their wish to have Pujols return to his first home. Since he left as a free agent for a 10-year contract, Pujols has reached 600 career home runs and collected his 3,000th career hit this season. He’s one of four players with those totals, joining Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez. Pujols, who will be 39 next year, told the Post-Dispatch in 2016 that he wanted a chance to play again at Busch. “I would love to get back to St. Louis, to play a game there,” he said as the Cardinals visited him. “I always tell people I came there a little boy and I left there a grown man. It would be pretty emotional, too. I’m a pretty emotional guy. … It would be important when that moment comes.”

LEONE ‘TURNS CORNER’

Reliever Dominic Leone, whose season has been in question because of nerve trouble in his right arm and biceps, met with a specialist this past week and received encouraging news. Leone’s nerve injury has started to show signs of rejuvenation and recovery. “He’s turned the corner from uncertainty to progressing in the right direction,” general manager Michael Girsch said. “It’s going to be a process.”

Leone went on the disabled list May 5, and he was moved eventually to the 60-day disabled list because of the longevity of his injury. Acquired from Toronto, the 26-year-old righthander started the season as the Cardinals’ stand-in closer and went 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA in 15 games. When his biceps became an issue, the question for Leone was whether he would pitch again this season for the Cardinals. Now it’s when, Girsch said. Leone has had some atrophying of his arm strength and will need a lengthy program to get back to full health.

BOWMAN BACK

With the return of Matt Bowman on Friday from a blisters issue that put him on the disabled list, the Cardinals had a stocked and refreshed bullpen for the first time in at least a week, but sorting out roles was still what manager Mike Matheny has long called “a work in progress.” “We’ve been pushing these guys pretty hard,” the manager said. “It seems like it’s been multiple games in a row where we’ve had multiple players who were untouchable that night. That creates a challenge. That could end up changing in a hurry if we go one extra-inning game (or) you go a couple of really tight, knock-down, drag-outs, and you put a lot of work on them.”

To make room for Bowman on the active roster the Cardinals optioned Daniel Poncedeleon to Class AAA Memphis. He’s the second pitcher this season and third player overall to come to the majors for a promotion and not get an appearance. Austin Gomber, another, has returned in a prominent role. Bowman’s return as a “bridge” reliever to Jordan Hicks and closer Bud Norris could help free Gomber, a lefty, for his assignments as a targeted specialist vs. the Cubs’ lefthanded hitters like Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward. Brett Cecil is the only other active lefty, though several righthanders have had better success against lefthanded batters than him. “I obviously feel good,” Bowman said. “I’m hoping we can make the playoffs, and I’m a little bit fresher. We’ve had a lot of guys on the DL. It stinks now. At some point, there could be some silver lining to that.”

INJURY UPDATES

Shortstop Paul DeJong (fractured finger) will have a scan taken of the joint Saturday to determine if he can begin taking batting practice. DeJong has been swinging a bat, tracking pitches, and taking grounders, but he has not been cleared to test the fractured digit by making contact with the bat. Once cleared, he’ll advance as tolerated and stride toward a rehab assignment with a minor-league affiliate. Girsch said DeJong’s recovery could “move quickly” when cleared. Adam Wainwright (elbow) received a platelet-rich plasma injection near his right elbow this past week and has been prescribed several days of rest to allow the treatment to take root and begin to promote healing in the ailing joint. Wainwright is still several weeks away from returning to a throwing program. Elsewhere: Reliever Greg Holland (hip) had his appearance at Class AA Springfield rained out Thursday night, so he’ll attempt to pitch back-to-back games Friday and Saturday. The righthander will be evaluated based on his results after those two appearances and could return to a minor-league affiliate at that point for another set of innings. Luke Gregerson (knee surgery) and Tyler Lyons (elbow) will begin throwing programs next week while the team takes a road trip to Philadelphia and Milwaukee.

Cubs pound long homers in victory CARDINALS • FROM B1

the Cardinals trailed 11-1, and only a few home runs toward the end of the game tidied up the score at all. Tommy Pham hit a solo homer in the in eighth for his first in 18 games and his first extra-base hit since May 26th. Pham’s cold snap has been part of a larger chill for the Cardinals, offensively. They have been able to hit home runs, and on Friday general manager Michael Girsch described the wide disparity between the Cardinals ability to hit homers and their league-lagging number of doubles as “an odd confluence of luck.” For much of the season, the Cardinals have hung their optimism on their stars’ track record — that Dexter Fowler has had slow starts before and ignited, that Marcell Ozuna has been hitting the ball hard, just not up, and so on. The Cardinals have been describing a team that will snap back to form and stir with a vengeance,

and on Friday night they saw that. In the Cubs. The rivals arrived at Busch Stadium with six home runs in June, one more than Jose Martinez has hit for the Cardinals this month. The Cubs’ six were the fewest in the majors so far this month, and they had just been shutout in back-to-back games at Miller Park, one of the primo parks for power in baseball. Wacha (8-2) got through the Cubs’ lineup once, allowing only Happ’s homer — but that proved a harbinger. Three batters later, Bryant piloted a changeup to the seats beyond the Cubs’ bullpen for a 3-0 lead. In the fourth, an error allowed the Cubs to turn a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly into a couple of runs and a 5-0 lead. In the fifth, the Cubs stormed ahead for six more runs. By the end of the sixth, first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who like a handful of Cardinals has had a chilly start with a .238 average, had three hits and was on

base four times. His ground-rule double sparked the six-run inning for the Cubs. Four came against Wacha. Three on Schwarber’s blast. Wacha flipped a curveball to Schwarber at 79-mph, and the pitch — like the fastball to Happ and the change to Bryant — stayed up in the zone. Schwarber belted it to straightaway center field and the concrete walkway beyond the batter’s eye. The estimated distance of 465 feet made it the thirdlongest by an opponent at Busch III. The similar location of the pitch hinted at Wacha struggling with his release point. “It was just hanging,” Wacha said of the curve. “I usually have a good sense of getting (the release point) back to where I want it to be. They weren’t crisp. Just falling behind batters. Too many walks. Free baserunners. Always something going on. Not a good spot for me to be in.” Wacha has allowed at least six runs in a start 10 times, and four of them

have come against the Cubs. Wacha’s previous high for runs allowed in a game was May 24, 2016 when he allowed eight. That was against the Cubs, too. At Busch Stadium against the rivals, Wacha had a 6.25 ERA in nine games — before Friday’s. Jon Lester (8-2) has not had the same difficulty against the Cardinals since joining the fray of this flyover rivalry — and helping

to tilt it toward the north. He zipped through the Cardinals lineup, sidestepping an error and a walk in the second inning to keep the game scoreless at the time. He struck out three and allowed five hits, and the only two runs against the lefty came on homers in his six innings. The Cardinals were left to sift through the swamp of a box score for tiny pearls. Matt Bowman returned

from the disabled list to throw a spotless inning — the Cardinals’ only threeup, three-down inning of the game. They found an inning for lefty Brett Cecil to get work, and then had to pass when they saw a dip in velocity. Matheny said the team is “hypersensitive” to such a shift. And they got home runs from Ozuna, Matt Carpenter, and Pham for the first time in weeks. They cobbled together three runs in the seventh inning or later to make the run differential less dramatic. By any measure, inability to generate runs remain the difference. “If we keep struggling to score runs, obviously our offense isn’t enough,” Girsch said before the game. “Guys have good halves and bad halves all the time. I still think this set of players can absolutely be enough (offense). Whether it will be or not I don’t know. It absolutely can be.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

NOTEBOOK Rangers’ Chirinos, Dodgers’ Kemp suspended one game after scuffle Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp have been suspended for one game apiece by Major League Baseball after a scuffle that followed a home plate collision.Joe Torre, MLB’s chief baseball officer, announced the suspensions Friday, along with undisclosed fines. Chirinos sat out Friday night against Colorado. Kemp is appealing his suspension, making him available for Los Angeles’ game against San Francisco. Chirinos and Kemp jostled as they got up after the collision in the third inning of Wednesday night’s game at Dodger Stadium. The benches and bullpens cleared, though no punches were thrown. Chirinos and Kemp were both ejected. Reds’ Bailey halts rehab assignment • Struggling Cincinnati Reds righthander Homer Bailey has halted his injury rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Louisville. Bailey made one start for Louisville and allowed five runs in three innings Monday. He has been on the disabled list with right knee inflammation since May 30, and interim manager Jim Riggleman said before Friday night’s game against the Pirates that Bailey informed the Reds that he is not healthy enough to pitch. In 12 major leagues starts this season, Bailey is 1-7 with a 6.68 ERA. He pitched no-hitters in both 2012 and 2013 for the Reds but has been limited by injuries to 38 starts over the last four seasons. Bailey, 32, is making $21 million this season in the fifth year of a $105-million, six-year contract. Twins say Mauer is back • Joe Mauer returned to the Minnesota lineup after missing 25 games with a strained neck and concussion-like symptoms sustained when he was injured diving for a foul ball last month. Mauer has been symptom-free for a week. He went hitless in 10 at-bats over three games in a rehab stint with Triple-A Rochester, but the threetime batting champion feels ready to go. Orioles reliever Bleier requires surgery • Baltimore reliever Richard Bleier is probably lost for the year with a shoulder injury, yet another setback for the team with the worst record in the major leagues. Bleier (3-0, 1.93 ERA) was the most effective pitcher in a bullpen that only recently got back injured Zach Britton and Darren O’Day. Bleier walked off the mound in pain Wednesday after throwing a seventh-inning pitch against Boston. An MRI determined the injury to be a left shoulder latissimus strain, which probably will require surgery to repair. Indians lose Alonso but gain Naquin • Indians starting first baseman Yonder Alonso will miss at least three games after being placed on the familymedical-emergency list. The AL Central-leading Indians also activated center fielder Tyler Naquin from the disabled list. He had been sidelined with a hamstring injury since May 11. Alonso is batting .248 with 11 homers and 37 RBIs in 65 games. Naquin was hurt running the bases in Kansas City last month. He’s batting .333 (25 of 75) with two homers and 11 RBIs in 30 games. He recently appeared in six games on a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. ‘Marlins Man’ gets taken for $1.5 million • A bookkeeper pleaded guilty this week to embezzling $1.5 million from Florida lawyer Laurence Leavy, who often sits in the best seats at major sporting events nationwide bedecked in his bright orange Miami Marlins visor and jersey. The SunSentinel reports Maria Alonso pleaded guilty in federal court to issuing more than 1,000 fake checks to herself since 2009 and received a four-year sentence. She worked 17 years for Leavy. Leavy, referred to as The Marlins Man, wears his orange getup to games, which makes him noticeable on TV. The workers compensation attorney often buys several of the best seats and then treats random fans, just asking them that they pay the good deed forward. Associated Press

“I’m here for my dad, and for Stan Musial,” said Annie Pogue of South St. Louis as she photographed a floral baseball spray honoring Red Schoendienst before his funeral at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on Friday.

contract in 1942, the iconic Cardinal with the greatest hands Stan Musial ever saw spent the bulk of his lifetime, as Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. eloquently phrased it, leaving his fingerprints all over a tremendous 67 years of Cardinals history that included World Series championships as a player, coach, manager and trusted adviser. The milestones (10 All-Star teams, seven .300 seasons, 26 stolen bases in 1945) and the memories (the perfect double plays, the 14th-inning All-Star blast, the convertible trips around the stadium as the thread that tied together so many of his fellow red coats) are remarkable without any context. But what magnifies his achievements, and what should be remembered and celebrated and adopted, is the way in which the Hall of Famer navigated his journey of 95 years. “What a guy he was,” Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong said. “True ambassador to the game. True ambassador to Cardinals baseball.” Wong was one of many current and former Cardinals found in the pews Friday. He came to say goodbye to the icon he first met in 2013. An aching rookie in need of treatment, Wong entered the team’s training room. An elderly gentleman in full uniform arrived. The trainers immediately stopped paying attention to Wong and instead attended to the stranger. “Who is this guy?” Wong remembered thinking. “Being from Hawaii, I didn’t know too much about the Cardinals. The trainers come and start massaging him. I’m sitting there, and no one is even working on me. I’m like, what the heck?” The man finished his treatment, hopped off the table and headed for the door. He looked back before he left. There was a twinkle in his eye. “Hey young man, how’s it going?” he asked. “I’m Red.” Five years later, Wong spoke admirably about the fungo-hitting guru he learned to seek out in times both good and bad. That’s how it worked, you see. As Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter told Jeff Idelson as the Hall of Fame president prepared to speak Friday, the oftensilent Red always had a great answer. But you had to ask. Whether the set-

ting was a clubhouse or executive suite, voices dropped when he talked. “People wanted to hear what he had to say,” daughter Colleen Schoendienst recalled. He often told those close to him that he had more fun playing baseball than anyone else, and it was this reminder — to always have fun playing this game — that stuck with the hard-charging, heart-on-his-sleeve Wong. It’s become Wong’s philosophy during this trying season. “To have learned from him, to have been around him, to see how he went about his day, that’s how I want to be when I get older,” Wong said. “That’s how I want people to look at me when it’s my time.” The lessons that can be learned from Red are not contained to the diamond. “Humility. Modesty. Patience,” said the voice of the Cardinals, Mike Shannon. “He employed these virtues in baseball. And he used them in life.” Before his reference required just one color or number, Red had to overcome an eye that was damaged in a fencebuilding accident. He beat the Depression. Then he tackled tuberculosis. He was a devoted husband for more than 50 years to his late wife, Mary Eileen O’ Reilly Schoendienst. Their children remember a different uniform. On Sunday mornings, behind a white apron, he whipped up pancakes and

eggs as he quizzed them about school. Late in life, he finally turned in his flip phone for a new model, solely because it could carry pictures of his grandchildren and their children. He practiced acceptance when it was too often hard to find. When Idelson asked Red’s former Milwaukee teammate, Hank Aaron, for his Red reflection, Aaron wanted the world to know that Schoendienst offered his true friendship when some white players turned their backs. He worked hard to be happy where he was, and sure made it look easy. He found joy in simple things, like a welltimed joke, watching a sunrise from a duck blind, and, yes, drinking a cold one, or two. “When you saw Red, you always got a smile,” Shannon said in front of a crowd of more than 1,000 on Friday. “Red was everything everyone else wanted to be as a person. His testimony is here today. His greatness is evident in this gathering. Red’s body might be gone, but his soul is in our hearts forever.” So, let’s remember Red by attempting to live a life worthy of praise, letting our eyes twinkle a little bit more along the way.

COLLEGE WORLD SERIES

Oregon State pitcher discounts effect of crowd Sex-case guilty plea from time he was 15 clouds his future ASSOCIATED PRESS

OMAHA, NEB. • Oregon State pitcher Luke Heimlich is the probable starter in the opening game of the College World Series on Saturday, and he said he is ready for any kind of reception he receives from the fans on the sport’s biggest stage. Heimlich, 22, is in Omaha a year after it was disclosed he had pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a young relative when he was 15. He has denied wrongdoing in recent interviews with Sports Illustrated and The New York Times, saying he entered the guilty plea to spare his family the ordeal of a trial. Heimlich received a standing ovation when he walked off the mound at his home ballpark for the last time last week. But the lefthanded ace will be at the college game’s premier event — 1,700 miles from Corvallis, Ore. — when the Beavers face North Carolina at TD Ameritrade Park. “I’m not worried about the fans. I play baseball on the field,” Heimlich said in the Oregon State clubhouse Friday. “People and the fans can cheer me on. They can boo. They can do what they

want. I’m here to play baseball.” Heimlich has played a major role in the Beavers making it to the CWS for the second year in a row. He leads the nation in wins with a school-record 16-1 record and 151 strikeouts in 1201/3 innings. He was named Pac-12 pitcher of the year for the second straight season. Last year, after The Oregonian newspaper first reported Heimlich’s juvenile record, Heimlich opted to sit out the super regional and did not make the trip to Omaha.

“It wasn’t fun,” Heimlich said. “I watched some of it from home. One of the games I went on a hike, the other I was on a beach somewhere. I definitely was following (it).” Brenda Tracy, a rape survivor and activist who speaks to college sports teams around the country, said Heimlich should not have been allowed to rejoin the team this season. The Heimlich story hits close to home for her. Tracy alleged she was gang raped by four men, including three Oregon State football play-

ers, when she was a student at OSU in 1998. “It’s long past time for universities and athletic departments to ban violent athletes,” she said. “There are consequences for your behavior, and playing sports is a privilege.” Tracy said the NCAA should adopt the rule passed this month by the Big Sky Conference that prevents individuals with a history of convicted violence to receive athletic-related financial aid or participate in practice or competition. The misconduct includes any act of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and assault with a deadly weapon. Heimlich, a senior from Puyallup, Wash. initially was charged with two counts of molestation. He ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of molestation between February 2011 and December 2011, a period during which he was 15. Prosecutors dismissed the other charge. He entered a diversion program, received two years of probation and was ordered to attend sex offender treatment for two years, according to court records. He was ordered to serve 40 weeks of detention at a juvenile facility, but that sentence was suspended and he served no time because he successfully completed probation. Heimlich deflected questions touching on his history with a

stock answer: “I’m focused on continuing to help my team win games.” His future after the CWS is to be determined. Widely considered a first-round talent, he went undrafted two straight years. He still could sign with a major league club as an undrafted free agent, or play in an independent league or overseas. “I had no expectations going into the draft,” he said. “I have a great group of guys around me and we’re excited to continue playing baseball.” Heimlich turned in one of his best performances in Game 1 of super regionals in Corvallis on June 8. He allowed one run on seven hits, walked none and struck out nine before leaving to applause with two outs in the ninth. “The town has been great,” he said. “People saw it with the standing ovation on my last start. Definitely emotional night. I’ve played there four years, thrown something like 370 innings on that field in these colors and I know I still have more games to play. But that feeling meant a lot.” Heimlich said he wouldn’t be nervous when he takes the mound in Omaha. “I’ve been playing this game since I was 8 years old and I’ve been playing the game the way I want to play all season,” he said. “I’m not changing anything because the scenario changes.”

Woods not alone in Shinnecock stumble Spieth, McIlroy also among top players who miss the cut ASSOCIATED PRESS

The U.S. Open cut sliced off some huge names. There won’t be an inspiring weekend return to the tournament for Tiger Woods, nor a fifth major championship for Rory McIlroy. Jordan Spieth won’t get his fourth major, Martin Kaymer never contended for a third and Jason Day is going home without his second. Same deal for some other owners of one major title: Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Keegan Bradley. Four players ranked in the top 10 in the world won’t be around come Saturday, missing the cut of 8-over 148: No. 4 Spieth, No. 5 Jon Rahm, No. 6 McIlroy and No. 8 Day. Shinnecock Hills beat them all. Failure to advance might have been most painful for Spieth, who rallied from a first-round 78 with four straight birdies on his back nine, then bogeyed his final two holes to wind up at 9 over — and done. Aside from his 2015 win in this event, Spieth has a spotty record. He finished 37th and 35th in the last two U.S. Opens. Woods, who missed the last two U.S. Opens with injuries and hasn’t won one — nor any major — since 2008 — had little chance of sticking around after firstround struggles. He opened with

a 78, then shot 72. “I’m not very happy the way I played and the way I putted,” said Woods, who also missed the cut three years ago at Chambers Bay. “I’m 10 over par. So I don’t know that you can be too happy and too excited about 10 over par.” McIlroy was even worse Thursday with an 80. He came in Friday with an even-par 70, not nearly enough. “The conditions took me by surprise yesterday and that is what really got me,” said McIlroy, specifically referring to the shifting wind. “The conditions were a lot better today and I played well, the way I have been playing in decent conditions recently. “Every time you come into a U.S. Open you know it’s going to be tough. I showed glimpses of the good form today, but I just wish I had handled the conditions better yesterday.”

Day also didn’t get into the mix from the outset, shooting 79-73. St. Louisan Naegel tied for 35th • Chris Naegel, a pro from Wildwood who played college golf at Missouri Baptist, shot a second 3-over 73 on Friday to sit at 6 over for the tournament. Naegel started out with a birdie on the par-4 No. 1 on Friday. Bogeys at Nos. 3 and 6 and a double bogey on No. 8 saw him slip to 6 over for the tournament. But he was solid on the back nine with all pars except a birdie on the par-4 No. 15 and then a bogey on No. 18 to easily beat the cut line at 8 over. Walker’s wild ride • Talk about roller coasters. Jimmy Walker, winner of the 2016 PGA Championship, had two eagles and two birdies in his second-round 70. He also had four bogeys and a double bogey.

Walker started on the back nine and had eagles on the par-5 16th, a 610-yard monster, and the par-4 fourth. At 16 Walker reached the green in two and sank a twisting putt of about 15 feet. He gave a slight fist pump when the ball went into the cup. His reaction wasn’t nearly so tame on No. 4. His drive entered the bunker on the right side of the fairway, but his second shot was exquisite. It bounced twice and fell into the hole for a 2. Walker raised both arms in triumph, slapped hands with his caddie, then bowed to the fans, a huge smile on his face. Along with birdies at 8 and 17, that left him at even par for his round and 5 over, nine shots out of the lead. A fine day for Fleetwood • The U.S. Open suits Tommy Fleetwood, particularly when conditions get difficult. You know, wind and rain and chilly temperatures, just like back home in England. Exactly like Fleetwood got Friday morning at Shinnecock Hills. Fleetwood had six birdies and matched Brooks Koepka on the day for best round of the tournament with a 4-under-66. “I do quite like it in sort of a funny way,” Fleetwood said. “I like to think I can control my ball well, but I still feel like I’m getting a lot better at it. And I think that some of the strengths I have, I have a lot of patience ... the tougher the conditions, the more I feel like I can grind it out and will my way around a little bit.”

shot led to a few more that were even worse — a bunker shot over the green, a chunk into the hay, a chop short of the green and a triple bogey on No. 8. He made bogey on his last hole for a 72. “There’s a disaster on every single hole,” Poulter said. That left Charley Hoffman the only other player under par until he missed the 18th fairway and had to make a 5-footer to escape with bogey and a 69. Johnson was at 4-under 136 as he goes after his second U.S. Open title in three years. Tiger Woods won’t be around to see how it turns out, and he had plenty of company. Woods closed with back-toback birdies to salvage a 72. He was 10 over and missed the cut in a major for the fifth time in his last eight tries, this time by two shots. Rory McIlroy shot a 70 but missed the cut for the third straight year in the U.S. Open, unable to recover from his opening 80. Jordan Spieth joined them in the most unlikely fashion. He took three shots to get up the slope and onto the 10th green, making double bogey. He was three shots over the cut line with six holes to play when he ran off four straight birdies to get inside the number — only to three-putt for bogey on the 17th, stub a chip from the collar of a bunker on the 18th and miss the par putt for a 71. He had not missed the cut in a major since the 2014 PGA Championship. Scott Piercy, a runner-up to Johnson at Oakmont two years ago, had a 71 and will play in the final group with him Saturday. Piercy’s day was not without regrets, especially when he threeputted from 4 feet for bogey on the par-5 16th. He was at evenpar 140, along with Hoffman (69). Plenty of others were poised to take advantage if Johnson slipped, or if more pure weather arrived to allow them to make a move. Defending champion Brooks Koepka made six birdies over his last 11 holes for a 66, matching Tommy Fleetwood for the low round of the tournament. They were at 1-over 141, along with Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose, each with a 70, and Poulter. Rose also was under par until closing with successive bogeys. With 36 holes to play, he wasn’t overly concerned about tracking down the No. 1 player in the

world. “You just saw what happened to Ian Poulter five minutes ago. That could happen to DJ,” Rose said. “I’m not saying it’s going to, but it could. That’s the nature of the U.S. Open. So hang around is often the best form of attack.”

Johnson knows that all too well. He had a three-shot lead at Pebble Beach in the 2010 U.S. Open and lost it all on the second hole with a triple bogey, and then compounded mistakes by trying to drive the green on the next

two holes. He shot 82. He has endured more than his share of bad luck, bad breaks and bad shots in the majors. His outlook at Shinnecock Hills has been built on patience and being practical. One example was Thursday, when his ball was sitting up in thick grass, and he put back a club that might have reached the green and used wedge to get it back in play. He made bogey, but he took double bogey or worse out of the equation. “I never want to make doubles,” Johnson said. “Around here, it seems like when I do get out of position, I’m just trying to do everything I can to get it back into position, not try to push it, and just give myself a decent look ... something on the green where I can have a look at par. “I want to make things as easy as possible, even though they don’t get any easier.” Johnson is coming off a sixshot victory at the St. Jude Classic, and no U.S. Open champion has ever won the week before on the PGA Tour. But this is far from over. Johnson knows that as well as anyone. So does Rose, who overcame an eight-shot deficit against Johnson in the final round in Shanghai last fall at the HSBC Champions, or even Stenson, who played with Johnson in that final round.

Blues announce preseason schedule BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Following surgery for a shoulder injury suffered in the Blues’ season finale against Colorado, Vladimir Tarasenko is doing well, and according to Armstrong, all the rehab is taking place in St. Louis. “He’s actually spending his whole summer here,” Armstrong said. “He’s working hard. He saw our doctors. They’re very impressed with his range of motion, so he’s putting in the time on that part and now he’ll be able to start doing other forms of conditioning with that shoulder which will benefit him. “But he’s putting in the hard work here and he’s spending the summer here which shows how important he views the start of the season.”

The Blues announced their seven-game preseason schedule for this fall, and it includes two games against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, two games against the Columbus Blue Jackets and two against the Central Division rival Dallas Stars. A seventh game will be played in Des Moines, Iowa, against the Minnesota Wild. Des Moines is the home of Minnesota’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Iowa Wild. There will not be a preseason game played in Kansas City this year. Three of the seven games will be played at home in the Enterprise Center. Here’s the preseason schedule, with home games in CAPS: Sept. 18 • at Dallas Stars, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 • vs. Minnesota Wild (at Des Moines, Iowa), 7 p.m. Sept. 21 • COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS, 7 p.m. Sept. 23 • at Columbus Blue Jackets, 2 p.m. Sept. 25 • WASHINGTON CAPITALS, 7 p.m. Sept. 28 • DALLAS STARS, 7 p.m. Sept. 30 • at Washington Capitals, 5 p.m. (time subject to change) The regular-season schedule will be announced Thursday. Singlegame tickets for both preseason and regular-season games will be available at a later date. Full-season, half-season, and 12-game ticket plans are now available at st.louisblues.com/ tickets or at 314-622-2583.

But without getting specific, Armstrong indicated that the sides aren’t close to an agreement at this point. “We’re just at a different spot right now,” Armstrong said. “But he’s not closing the door, or are we.” The unrestricted free agency period begins July 1; June 25 is the first day that teams can “legally” talk to free agents from other teams. Among other Blues scheduled for unrestricted free agency, Armstrong said the team has been in discussions with center Kyle Brodziak, who was very effective last season as a third- and fourthline player with 33 points on 10 goals and 23 assists. Brodziak was plus-13, trailing only Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz (both plus-15) in that category among Blues forwards. “At that age, it’s as much term

as it is dollars,” Armstrong said. “But his agent and I have spoken and there’s a mutual respect for what he does and we’re hoping to see if we can talk probably at the draft, or just after.” Brodziak turned 34 last month, so it’s safe to assume the Blues are interested in a short-term deal, most likely a one-year contract. Meanwhile, unrestricted free agent Scottie Upshall, who turns 35 in October, finds himself in a position similar to last year with respect to the Blues. “With our youth in other areas, we told him he should certainly look around,” Armstrong said. While the Blues respect what Upshall can bring as a player, it would be late in the offseason if they decided to try to re-sign him. Upshall’s 2017-18 season ended early with a lacerated kidney suffered March 31 against Arizona. As for Upshall’s recovery and rehab from that injury, Armstrong said, “All indications are he’s doing well.” In terms of restricted free agents, Armstrong said the Blues plan to send out qualifying offers to Joel Edmundson, Robby Fabbri, Dmitrij Jaskin, Jordan Schmaltz, Nikita Soshnikov and Oskar Sundqvist next week. “I don’t expect to have much of an issue getting those guys signed,” Armstrong said. “Ed-

mundson is the one player that’s gonna take a little more creativity on whether we wanna go short term or long term. “I think a lot will have to do with what happens in the next two weeks as far as dollars spent either via trade or free agency. He’s a couple years away from UFA (unrestricted free agency). He’s a player that we want here long term, it’s just finding the sweet spot on the short- or longterm deal. But if it’s a short-term deal, if it’s a one-year deal, I know I’ll be talking to him Jan. 1 for a long-term deal.” Armstrong confirmed that the Blues had interest in Russian free agent forward Ilya Kovalchuk. “Always looking to improve our team,” Armstrong said. “We’re like all teams. He’s 35 years old, there’s risk involved with players of that age. But he could be Jaromir Jagr. He could start slowing down at 41. Or he could come back and hit the wall. You never know. “But there’s certainly intrigue there because he’s been such a dominant player internationally and he was a hell of a player when he left (the NHL).” Kovalchuk scored 417 goals in 12 NHL seasons from 2001-2013, then spent the next five seasons

Blues announce preseason schedule BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Following surgery for a shoulder injury suffered in the Blues’ season finale against Colorado, Vladimir Tarasenko is doing well, and according to Armstrong, all the rehab is taking place in St. Louis. “He’s actually spending his whole summer here,” Armstrong said. “He’s working hard. He saw our doctors. They’re very impressed with his range of motion, so he’s putting in the time on that part and now he’ll be able to start doing other forms of conditioning with that shoulder which will benefit him. “But he’s putting in the hard work here and he’s spending the summer here which shows how important he views the start of the season.”

The Blues announced their seven-game preseason schedule for this fall, and it includes two games against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, two games against the Columbus Blue Jackets and two against the Central Division rival Dallas Stars. A seventh game will be played in Des Moines, Iowa, against the Minnesota Wild. Des Moines is the home of Minnesota’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Iowa Wild. There will not be a preseason game played in Kansas City this year. Three of the seven games will be played at home in the Enterprise Center. Here’s the preseason schedule, with home games in CAPS: Sept. 18 • at Dallas Stars, 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 • vs. Minnesota Wild (at Des Moines, Iowa), 7 p.m. Sept. 21 • COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS, 7 p.m. Sept. 23 • at Columbus Blue Jackets, 2 p.m. Sept. 25 • WASHINGTON CAPITALS, 7 p.m. Sept. 28 • DALLAS STARS, 7 p.m. Sept. 30 • at Washington Capitals, 5 p.m. (time subject to change) The regular-season schedule will be announced Thursday. Singlegame tickets for both preseason and regular-season games will be available at a later date. Full-season, half-season, and 12-game ticket plans are now available at st.louisblues.com/ tickets or at 314-622-2583.

But without getting specific, Armstrong indicated that the sides aren’t close to an agreement at this point. “We’re just at a different spot right now,” Armstrong said. “But he’s not closing the door, or are we.” The unrestricted free agency period begins July 1; June 25 is the first day that teams can “legally” talk to free agents from other teams. Among other Blues scheduled for unrestricted free agency, Armstrong said the team has been in discussions with center Kyle Brodziak, who was very effective last season as a third- and fourthline player with 33 points on 10 goals and 23 assists. Brodziak was plus-13, trailing only Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz (both plus-15) in that category among Blues forwards. “At that age, it’s as much term

as it is dollars,” Armstrong said. “But his agent and I have spoken and there’s a mutual respect for what he does and we’re hoping to see if we can talk probably at the draft, or just after.” Brodziak turned 34 last month, so it’s safe to assume the Blues are interested in a short-term deal, most likely a one-year contract. Meanwhile, unrestricted free agent Scottie Upshall, who turns 35 in October, finds himself in a position similar to last year with respect to the Blues. “With our youth in other areas, we told him he should certainly look around,” Armstrong said. While the Blues respect what Upshall can bring as a player, it would be late in the offseason if they decided to try to re-sign him. Upshall’s 2017-18 season ended early with a lacerated kidney suffered March 31 against Arizona. As for Upshall’s recovery and rehab from that injury, Armstrong said, “All indications are he’s doing well.” In terms of restricted free agents, Armstrong said the Blues plan to send out qualifying offers to Joel Edmundson, Robby Fabbri, Dmitrij Jaskin, Jordan Schmaltz, Nikita Soshnikov and Oskar Sundqvist next week. “I don’t expect to have much of an issue getting those guys signed,” Armstrong said. “Ed-

mundson is the one player that’s gonna take a little more creativity on whether we wanna go short term or long term. “I think a lot will have to do with what happens in the next two weeks as far as dollars spent either via trade or free agency. He’s a couple years away from UFA (unrestricted free agency). He’s a player that we want here long term, it’s just finding the sweet spot on the short- or longterm deal. But if it’s a short-term deal, if it’s a one-year deal, I know I’ll be talking to him Jan. 1 for a long-term deal.” Armstrong confirmed that the Blues had interest in Russian free agent forward Ilya Kovalchuk. “Always looking to improve our team,” Armstrong said. “We’re like all teams. He’s 35 years old, there’s risk involved with players of that age. But he could be Jaromir Jagr. He could start slowing down at 41. Or he could come back and hit the wall. You never know. “But there’s certainly intrigue there because he’s been such a dominant player internationally and he was a hell of a player when he left (the NHL).” Kovalchuk scored 417 goals in 12 NHL seasons from 2001-2013, then spent the next five seasons

ALL-METRO GIRLS SOCCER FIRST TEAM

PLAYER OF THE YEAR • ANNA LAWLER, SUMMIT

Goalkeeper • Bailey Redden, senior, Belleville West Redden came up big time and time again for the Maroons during her final season. In helping West to a Class 3A super-sectional, the program’s best postseason showing, the Southeast Missouri signee owned a 17-6-3 record with 14 shutouts. She also held a 0.62 goals against average while being called upon to make 120 saves. Defender • Anna Lawler, senior, Summit The Post-Dispatch All-Metro player of the year, Lawler showed her technical ability all over the pitch in leading Summit to the Class 3 title, which is the program’s first. The Oklahoma State signee not only helped the defense post 10 consecutive shutouts to end the season, she also scored six goals, two for game-winners, and added six assists. Defender • Hayley Jackovich, senior, Eureka Jackovich once again provided a strong yet steady presence in the back for the Wildcats, who followed up their 2017 state title with a third-place Class 4 finish. The Xavier signee was a part of a unit that gave up just 17 goals in front of a new goalkeeper. Jackovich also added eight goals and three assists for the offense. Defender • Jill Wipke, senior, Lafayette Wipke was a force for a Lafayette team that allowed just 13 goals in total and earned 11 wins via shutout. The Arkansas State signee also was productive on the offensive side of the ball as she scored four goals, two of which were game-winners, and added an assist. Defender • Margaret Lavigne, senior, Nerinx Hall A main cog of a Markers defense that allowed just 13 goals while shutting out 12 opponents, Lavigne helped shut down nearly all opponents. The Nebraska-Omaha signee even got into the act with the Markers’ offense as she scored two goals, one for a game-winner, and added an assist. Midfielder • Anna Walsh, junior, Summit Walsh was another of the Falcons’ players who proved her worth all over the pitch this season. She scored eight goals and added eight assists for the Class 3 champions. Of her eight goals, two counted as game-winning goals. Midfielder • Emily Groark, senior, Incarnate Word Groark was an offensive dynamo for the Red Knights as the team earned second place in Class 3. She led the Red Knights with 22 goals and 11 assists. The University of Colorado signee also tallied nine game-winning goals. Midfielder • Liesl Whitener, sophomore, Althoff Whitener was a major factor as the Crusaders finished third in the Class 1A state tournament. She led Althoff with 33 goals and eight assists. Whitener also added five gamewinning goals, including one in each of the first three postseason contests. Forward • Emily Gaebe, freshman, Union Helped lead the Wildcats to a special season that finished with a program-best fourth-place finish in Class 3. Gaebe’s 63 goals were a school record and the best total for an area player this season. She also added eight assists and her 12 gamewinning goals were also among area leaders. Forward • Kennedy Jones, junior, Columbia Jones was one of the top offensive threats in the area as she not only scored 51 goals but also added 19 assists for the Eagles during a stellar season. The 12 game-winning goals she scored also put her amongst the top players in the area in that category. Forward • Gabby Smith, senior, Nerinx Hall Smith’s 15 goals and 10 assists led the Markers, who only tasted defeat twice. The Butler signee also tallied a team-high five game-winning goals. One of those tallies came in a win over then-defending Class 4 champion Eureka. Forward • Lily Schnieders, junior, Summit The firepower behind the offense for the Class 3 state champion, Schnieders scored goals in both state games, including the lone tally in the championship game. Her 23 goals led the Falcons, as did her seven game-winners. She also added seven assists.

PEAK PERFORMANCE

Senior takes step back on field to help Falcons move forward BY JIM FAASEN StLhighschoolsports.com

Anna Lawler puts everything she has into everything she does. While Lawler, who is the Post-Dispatch All-Metro girls soccer player of the year for the second time in three seasons, continues to show she is one of the top technical players around, things could have been much different. At a very young age, Lawler — who is headed to play soccer for defending Big 12 Conference champion Oklahoma State — faced an athletic crossroads. As a youth, she was forced to give up either soccer or her beloved gymnastics. “I chose gymnastics at the time, actually,” Lawler said. “My mom told me I was going to play soccer, though. That’s when I pretty much quit gymnastics. Soccer has definitely been my sport since I was 8. When I had to quit, I was upset. I have grown up since then and it was something I liked. I had to let one go, but I definitely think my parents made the right choice.” While the choice was lucky for Lawler, it proved even luckier for anyone who is a fan of skillful soccer. As Summit coach Chris Kappler puts it, Lawler’s technical merit is beyond measure. “The poise and confidence she exudes on the field is amazing,” Kappler said. “She looks effortless and that’s how good and great players play sometimes. They make things look

easy but, deep down, it (takes) a lot more effort than it looks.” As far as offense is concerned, Lawler’s six goals, two of which were game-winners, and six assists were valuable. They just didn’t carry the value Lawler’s play carried in terms of the team’s defense. She anchored a defense that finished with 10 consecutive shutouts right through a 1-0 victory over Incarnate Word in the Class 3 state championship game. It gave Summit its first state title in girls soccer after runner-up finishes when Lawler was a freshman in 2015 and a sophomore in 2016. Lawler also was All-Metro player of the year after the 2016 season. “It took the whole defense for us to do what we did,” said Kappler, whose final game as Summit’s coach was the championship. “It’s hard to say we’d be as good as we were without her. I’m at a loss for words with Anna because she’ll go down as the most decorated player to ever play at Summit. She’s right up there with elite players to ever play high school soccer in the state, even though she’s not a prolific goal scorer. “The only thing she didn’t have was the title and now she’s got one.” Lawler said gaining that final piece to the puzzle in her high school career was indeed special. Though it was her third try in four seasons, leaving Summit as a champion is truly special to Lawler. While her move before the season from center midfielder to center back helped solidify the defense, Lawler

said the credit isn’t hers alone. “It being my last year and also being Kap’s last year, it was special to end it like this, with the title after having been there before,” Lawler said. “We all had a hand in this. There were a lot of girls who (played away from their natural position). We all pitched in to make sure this got done.” Lawler said her position change not only paid dividends for the Falcons. In the long run, it may well benefit her at Oklahoma State. “I played a lot of center mid for my club and in high school when I was younger,” Lawler said. “Moving to center back does increase (versatility). I’ll just have to be ready to do what they want me to do when I get there.” Lawler said while competing at the state tournament for the third time in four seasons has been special, it’s been more than just winning the title that has made the whole ride worth it to her. Being a part of the Summit High community and the girls soccer team in general is a memory she will cherish. “I want to continue to encourage girls to play high school soccer,” Lawler said. “I think it I something that is so special, especially when you’re at the right school like I was — the right environment, the right community. It is so special. In any sport, really, getting to play for your high school is something cool.”

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD continuation. West shifted to the jack of hearts, which was overtaken by partner’s queen and won with declarer’s ace. A club was led to dummy’s queen and a club came back to declarer’s 10 and West’s ace. A diamond continuation was out of the question now, as South needed the queen to make up his minimum of 15 points. Also, West did not know that declarer had started with six clubs, so he continued with another heart. South now had nine tricks in the bag and he set out after a precious overtrick. He captured the heart with dummy’s king, crossed to his hand with the king of spades, and ran all of his clubs. West had to keep two spades or South could overtake the queen of spades with the ace and all of dummy’s spades would be good, so he came down to a singleton king of diamonds. South cashed his queen of spades and led a low diamond to West’s king, using West as a stepping stone to dummy’s ace of spades. The whole hand was a swindle by South, but a lovely one.

DEAR ABBY

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

Friend’s dad is still a threat

Dear Uncertain • That information would carry far more weight if it came from his daughter. Encourage her to discuss what her father did with the director of the retirement home as well as a

social worker. Her father should never be alone with a minor child again. If your friend refuses to do this, then you should speak up. Dear Abby • I love my grandchildren. My problem is, my daughter expects me to baby-sit at the snap of a finger regardless of what I have to do or what I have planned. Additionally, I never know how long I will be sitting. Sometimes, it can be up to 12 hours. I receive no compensation because, in her words, “Grandmothers should not be paid.” If I refuse, she accuses me of being a “bad” grandmother. Would I be justified in asking for compensation? I live on a fixed income and could use the money. — BAD GRANDMA Dear Grandma • If there are expenses incurred while you babysit your grandchildren, you should be compensated for them. However, I can see why your request for a salary for doing it would not be well-received. Because you need extra money, consider find-

ing a part-time job. If you do, you will not only ease the strain on your budget, but also make yourself less available to your daughter “at the snap of a finger.” Dear Abby • My niece, who is being married next month, sent out invitations a couple of weeks ago. She requested no children under 16 because they’ll be serving alcohol and because she is running tight with her guest list. My stepsister and her mom are upset because their young girls won’t be able to come. My sister said if they can’t go, then she isn’t going, which I think is ridiculous. How should this be handled? — NO EXCEPTIONS Dear No Exceptions • It should be handled by telling your stepsister and her mother how sorry everyone will be that they can’t attend, and they will be missed. 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.

MISS MANNERS

Trying to change nephew’s behavior Dear Miss Manners • We have a family quandary as to how to best address a situation with our nephew, Chet. Chet was always a very loud boy with some lack of social graces. We always thought he would grow out of it and grow up, like the rest of his cousins. Unfortunately, at age 17, Chet still continues to dominate every family gathering. He constantly talks over and interrupts everyone. His father (my brother, divorced and now remarried) says nothing about it. It has always been this way; even when his parents were together, there was no telling this boy to let others speak. In addition, Chet has become more annoying due to his constant need to talk about how expensive his shoes, computer, TV, etc. are, and how much better they are than what someone else may have. It’s not just my husband and me who are both-

ered by this. Our parents (Chet’s grandparents) can’t stand it, either. I have made an occasional comment about his remarks about how much everything costs — or the occasional “I am speaking, can I finish, please?” — but it seems to only help for about three minutes. Now that Chet is approaching adulthood, I would love his father to sit down with him and have a discussion about this, but it’s not likely to happen. What is the best way for the family to deal with it next time we are together? Chet tends to make us all dread the next family celebration or holiday. Gentle Reader • If only the problem of constant interruption and material obsessions were unique to 17-year-old boys. With your help, at least your nephew may still have a chance

of becoming a considerate conversationalist — a skill he will need to cultivate if he hopes to keep himself surrounded by expensive things. At 17, he is presumably on the verge of attending college or joining the workforce. Miss Manners recommends you point this out and offer to practice his interview skills with him, giving him constructive feedback as you go. If you pose it like a funny role-playing exercise, he may never catch on that he is learning a lesson — while he tries out his newfound skills on his family. 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.

Dear Abby • My very best friend growing up was repeatedly raped by her father from around age 13. She told me when we were 17. I reported it to a policeman, but back then, they couldn’t do anything unless she reported it. She refused in order to protect her mother. Her mom is gone now, but dear old Dad is still hanging on. He lives in a retirement home known for supporting children and children’s activities. (It’s associated with one of the largest charitable groups for kids.) I worry a lot about this freak having an opportunity to molest other children, and it sickens me that when he does finally die, he will receive full honors from this group. I have thought about anonymously contacting the home and warning them. Should I? — UNCERTAIN IN THE EAST

Feeling sad without a son, and maybe a grandchild FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn • I just found out my son and his wife are going to be parents. I’m very excited and somewhat confused and a little hurt: She’s seven months along. I don’t know why the long wait to tell me. They live in another state, and I haven’t seen them in about a year. I don’t interfere in their lives. I send a text now and then, saying, “Hope you have a good day, love you both.” I never get a reply. I have tried email a few times, still no response. Frankly I don’t know if my son has a stick up his butt or if he’s completely clueless. I don’t get texts or calls on my birthday, holidays or Mother’s Day. I’m feeling sad I won’t get to know my new grandchild. — Weepy Grannie

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

CORNERED • By Mike Baldwin

Answer • I’m sorry. The delayed pregnancy announcement merely confirms what has been true for a long time, that you and your son are all but estranged. It sounds as if you don’t really understand why — though maybe that’s only because you haven’t thought of it this way yet. Please do, and at least try to reconstruct the timeline of his withdrawal. Any factual trail will help show you how to repair the connection — and how not to make it worse. Apologies where needed, for example, are huge, and it’s also important to understand where the sensitivities are. If the wife, say, is at the beginning of the estrangement timeline, then it’s important to consider that clamoring for your coming grandchild without showing any concern for his or her mother is just a new way to encourage distance. And antagonizing her is about the last thing you want to do. That’s just one example. Antagonizing anyone is a bad idea in general, of course, and especially so when you’re trying to thaw out an icy relationship. So is a failure to look inward. A lack of self-awareness and an unwillingness to admit fault are the two-stage rocket that launches most if not all estrangements. The best case you can make for his letting you back in is for your presence to be a net plus: Be warm, be flexible, be respectful, don’t blame, don’t impose.
