STOPGAP BUDGET DEAL Illinois social services, schools get some relief

BILL INCLUDES $25 billion to begin paying down expenses from the fiscal year that ended Thursday. $50 billion to fund K-12 education for the full 2017 fiscal year beginning Friday, and for six months of social services, higher education and government operations.

BY IVAN MORENO AND JOHN O’CONNOR Associated Press

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner

‘This is a small step in the right direction. This is not a budget. This is not a balanced budget.’

Democratic House Leader Barbara Flynn Currie

The plan doesn’t solve the state’s problems. ‘It is meant to keep the lights on.’

Republican House Leader Jim Durkin

Finishing another fiscal year without a budget would have been ‘atrocious.’

SPRINGFIELD, ILL. • Illinois lawmakers approved a partial spending plan Thursday that would ensure schools stay open another year and gives colleges and human service programs funding for six months, a rare bipartisan accomplishment but one that won’t end the yearlong gridlock on a full budget.

‘My children are glad I’ve stepped into the 21st century’

The Democrat-led House and Senate overwhelmingly passed the plan, and Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed it later Thursday, the last day of the fiscal year. Democratic leaders and Rauner crafted the agreement after days of negotiations amid increased public pressure to avoid entering a second fiscal year without spending certainty. See BUDGET • Page A8

WASHINGTON • The Pentagon on Thursday lifted a long-standing ban against transgender men and women serving openly in the military, removing one of its last discriminatory hurdles and placing gender identity on par with race, religion, color, sex and sexual orientation. The announcement by Defense Secretary Ash Carter is part of a fundamental shift in the straight-laced, male-dominated U.S. military, which in 2011 ended discrimination against gays and lesbians. More recently, it opened all combat positions to women and appointed the first openly gay Secretary of the Army, Eric K. Fanning. “Our mission is to defend this country, and we don’t want barriers unrelated to a person’s qualification to serve preventing us from recruiting or retaining the soldier, sailor, airman or Marine who can best accomplish the mission,” Carter said. “We have to have access to 100 percent of America’s population for our allvolunteer force to be able to recruit from among them the most highly qualified — and to retain them.” See MILITARY • Page A8

She signed up for a class on Android use, learning how to shop for apps, access the calendar and attach photos to text messages. “Friends begged me and begged me, and I resisted and resisted,” Anderson said of trading in her flip phone for a device that nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults See TECHNOLOGY • Page A8

With droves of holiday drivers expected, more fatalities feared BY LEAH THORSEN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

YOUR GUIDE TO THE FAIR AND MORE GO! MAGAZINE

A record number of drivers are expected to be on the roads this holiday weekend, a particularly deadly time for accidents in past years. On average, more people die in car crashes on the Fourth of July than on any other day, according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety analysis released this week. Twice as many motorcyclists die on the holiday, and alcohol also is a factor in the high fatality toll, the group found.

“It is a busy holiday travel time. There are a lot of people out, and people are in a hurry getting to barbecues and to the lake,” said Sgt. Al Nothum of the Missouri Highway Patrol. Ten people died statewide in traic crashes over the long holiday weekend last year, and 140 were hurt. The statistics were similar in 2014, when nine people were killed and 121 injured. As of Sunday, the most recent date for which figures were available, 385 people had

Taking care of friends becomes a Steve Stenger signature

CLAYTON • A jury on Thursday acquitted a former Wellston police patrolman accused of a crime for having sex with a Normandy High School student while he was a resource oicer there. Ronald Freeman, now 30, stood trial this week on one felony count of sexual contact with a student. His accuser was 20 at the time of what she said was a forced encounter in 2012, as she was starting the last of her seven years Freeman at the school. Freeman broke down in tears after the verdict was read in St. Louis Country Circuit Court in Clayton. He did not testify, but he told police in recorded interviews that he had consensual sex with the woman once, at her apartment. But she testified Wednesday that they

veloper friends. The proposed 20-year lease could net the Glarners’ company up to $50 million. That’s a pretty healthy transaction. When it comes to leasing property from the county, who you know, and how much you’ve paid to their campaigns, matters. The North County nonprofit Beyond Housing learned that the hard way right after Stenger was elected. Under the Dooley administration, Beyond Housing had contracted with the county to lease office space for a health clinic at a development in Pagedale conceived as a community revival project in a part of the county that needs all the help it can get. But the nonprofit organization had a couple of things working against it. One of its board members was County Councilwoman Hazel Erby, who campaigned against Stenger. And the nonprofit doesn’t make campaign donations. In January 2015, in one of his first acts as county executive, Stenger orchestrated canceling plans for the health clinic. That lease would have cost the county $9 per square foot for seven years. The 20-year deal with the Glarners is for $12.98 per square foot. The county eventually moved some Children’s Services Fund oices into the development. In canceling the health clinic, Stenger criticized Erby for not disclosing that she was on the nonprofit board. He has a

point. Of course, for that point to carry the day, Stenger would have also disclosed to the County Council his $75,000 in campaign donations from the Glarners. Maybe he figured since it had already been in the newspaper, that was good enough. Back in November, when I asked the Glarners’ attorney why they formed Givco LLC, he told me that it was to be the vehicle for the development brothers to make their political and charitable contributions. Previously, the Glarners had given money to politicians under their own names or one or another of their various LLCs. That sounded reasonable. People with lots of money come up with all sorts of reasons for why they do what they do. But, the explanation doesn’t offer much insight into why on March 31, each of the brothers gave $2,500 in political donations in their own names. The recipient of both donations was Sam Page, the Democratic county councilman who is sponsoring the legislation to sign the lease with the Glarners. Maybe the brothers misplaced their Givco checkbook. Or they just changed their minds. Either way, their investments in St. Louis County Government appear to be ready to pay of. It’s good to have friends. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

had consensual sex three times, and that he later forced her into a sex act in the back of his patrol car while on duty. He was not charged with sexual assault. Freeman’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, told jurors that prosecutors failed to prove Freeman knew she was a student at the time. A school administrator testified Wednesday that Freeman was an employee and the woman was a student at the time at issue. Assistant Prosecutor Sheila Whirley also showed jurors the woman’s student identification card and diploma. The accuser, now 24, failed to appear in court Thursday to resume cross-examination after Circuit Judge Joseph L. Walsh III suspended her testimony a day earlier. Walsh had advised her to seek legal counsel over concerns that numerous contradictions in her testimony Wednesday may expose her to a perjury charge. She had testified that she met Freeman in May 2012, then recognized him in the

high school cafeteria that fall and asked for his help with numerous traic warrants. She said that on the October day when she says she was attacked, Freeman called to say he had court paperwork for her. The woman said they met at Ogden and Ridge avenues in Wellston, and went to a dirt road where, in uniform, he forced her into sex in the back seat of a patrol car. Freeman denied the allegation of forced sex. The woman had made Facebook posts claiming a Wellston cop raped her before reporting the allegation to authorities. Freeman declined to comment after the hearing. Rosenblum said, “Win, lose or draw, I always believe in our jury system, and I believe the jury gets it right most of the time.” He said Freeman wants to return to law enforcement.

TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Say this for St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger: He’s a giver. The Democrat who sits atop the county government apparatus has figured out a basic rule of survivability in politics: Take care of your friends. Among his friends — or so he told me back in November — are St. Louis developers David and Robert Glarner. We were talking about the Glarners because the brothers had funneled $50,000 in two campaign donations to Stenger through a limited liability company called Givco LLC. I called Stenger to ask him about the donations, which sparked my attention because he had won his Democratic primary against former county executive Charlie Dooley by criticizing donations that were significantly smaller that Dooley received from developers. As is common in Missouri campaign finance, the paper trail on Givco was hard to follow. It was not clear where the money came from. To his credit, Stenger fessed up. “They’re friends of mine,” Stenger told me. “They handed me the check. That’s how I know it was from them.” The donations — now up to $75,000 — became much more relevant when the County Council was presented with a plan this month to move three county oices to the Crossings at Northwest, a Glarner development at the site of the former Northwest Plaza. Back to November 2015 for a moment: That’s when Stenger told me that the Glarners had no business before the county that he was aware of. But he told the St. Louis Business Journal this week that he got directly involved in the negotiations with the Glarners over the new county leases in late 2015. That’s around the time he received the second in a series of three $25,000 checks, and when he told me, “There’s nothing transactional,” about the checks from his de-

6 projects vie for Maryland Heights’ OK Bornstein, Kroenke among those submitting plans to build on 1,800 acres along river BY STEVE GIEGERICH St. Louis Post-dispatch

MARYLAND HEIGHTS •

Six developers are seeking to transform all or part of 1,800 acres along the Missouri River from primarily agricultural use to feature condominiums, eateries and commercial space, or even — some say — a Major League Soccer stadium. Of the six proposals, one will draw the most attention — that of Howard Bend Development, a corporate entity controlled by attorney Alan Bornstein and his investment partner, Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke. Altus Properties, the

Creve Coeur Airport, Hat Trick Consultants LLC, SLCSW Farm LLC and Panattoni Development filled out the roster of companies and corporations that responded to a Request for Proposals, or RFP, issued in February. Maryland Heights did not release details of the site plans submitted Thursday. A city spokesman instead said the city would disclose a “summary of development proposals” on July 11. The gradual rollout of Lake District plans will continue two weeks later, on July 25, when the City Council, planners and economic development of-

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Brothers are charged in fatal shooting • Calvin Harris, 25, and Northa Harris, 24, were charged Wednesday in a shooting that killed one person and injured another this week. The men are brothers, according to charging documents, and they live together in the 4100 block of Maitt Avenue. Police said the two opened ire on a car Tuesday afternoon, killing David Times, 24, and seriously injuring one of his female relatives. Another woman and Times’ Calvin D. 5-month-old infant were also in the car but Harris were not injured. According to court documents, there was an argument between “some members of the Times family” at the Harris brothers’ home in the Ville neighborhood. Court documents say the Times family left, and when they stopped at a red light near Vandeventer Avenue and Martin Luther King Northa Drive about 3 p.m., Calvin and Northa Harris Harris approached the car and ired shots through the front windshield and the front passenger side of the car. The Harris brothers then left in a vehicle driven by an unknown person, according to charging documents. Calvin and Northa Harris are each charged with irstdegree murder and multiple counts of armed criminal action, four counts of irst-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. Both men were being held in lieu of $1 million bail, cash-only. FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS > Suspect charged in knife attack • Jason P. Seibel, of the 1300 block of North 17th Street in Swansea, was charged Thursday with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing a Fairview Heights man while he worked in his yard earlier this week. Seibel, 31, was charged with attempted irst-degree murder, aggravated battery with great bodily harm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for the attack. The victim, 33, was working in his yard in the 200 block of Union Hill Road on Tuesday night when police say he was stabbed in the Seibel neck, chest and shoulder. The victim was listed as stable. Seibel was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail. Police said Seibel “was known to the victim” but they did not give a motive in the attack. ST. LOUIS > Former security guard charged with groping hotel guest • A Hyatt Regency Hotel security guard was charged Monday with burglary and second-degree sexual abuse for allegedly breaking into a woman’s hotel room and groping her. Charging documents say David A. White, 46, of Collinsville, used his security key card to enter the victim’s hotel room while she was sleeping. He then groped her. The incident took place about 1 a.m. April 19 at the hotel, 315 Chestnut Street. White left the room when the victim woke up, according to the court documents. The victim was at the hotel for a business conference. Hyatt Regency spokesperson Amanda Aylward said White is no longer employed at the hotel. She said the hotel is cooperating with the police investigation. Bail was set at $75,000 for White, who was not yet in custody, police said. ST. LOUIS > Two dead, one wounded in shooting • Two men were shot to death in a van and a third victim was found on a sidewalk nearby in the Benton Park West neighborhood early Thursday, police said. The silver Chevrolet van crashed into a parked car about 12:30 a.m. in the 2900 block of Texas Avenue. Police said they found two bodies and narcotics inside the van. One of the two pronounced dead at the scene was Eric Jones, 30, of the 5800 block of Lilac Avenue in Bellefontaine Neighbors. The other was identiied only as a man, 26, pending notiication of relatives. The third victim, a man, 23, was found on the sidewalk near the van with multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to a hospital. He was listed in stable condition. ST. LOUIS > Shooting leaves one dead, one hurt • A man was killed and another injured in a shooting Thursday afternoon in the 5300 block of Cote Brilliante Avenue. Police called to the scene found the body of a man in the driver’s seat of a green Chevy pickup parked on the street. Another victim was taken to a hospital from the scene. Witnesses say they heard nine shots. No further details were immediately available. ST. LOUIS > 15-year sentence for child porn • A Franklin County truck driver was sentenced Thursday to 15 years and ive months in federal prison for possession of child pornography. Kenneth Hutchings Jr., 30, of the unincorporated community of Luebberling, was caught with more than 18,000 images containing child porn, including videos. He obtained the images via email, a peer-to-peer ile sharing service and Yahoo chat sessions. Hutchings was adjudicated in 2002 in Hutchings juvenile court for sexual abuse of a teen. He was investigated for another alleged sexual ofense in 2008 and caught with child porn in 2009, his plea says, but investigators were unable to ind it on his computer. In the most recent case, investigators were led to Hutchings and others by an Oregon man arrested on similar charges, who let the FBI take over his email account. Hutchings pleaded guilty in early June to two counts of possession of child porn.

ficials hold the first of four review sessions, workshops and hearings to gain public input on the proposals. The public sessions will continue through 2016 and conclude with the City Council entering an agreement with one or more of the developers early next year. The schedule of hearings and other significant dates leading to the project selection is posted on a dedicated Lake District website, mplakedistrict.com. The City Council voted in February to seek proposals for sites protected by the Howard Bend levee. In seeking the proposals, the council opened the door

for tax incentives to promote construction on the flood plain west of Creve Coeur Lake Park. Recently enacted state legislation granting counties greater sway in tax increment financing decisions could have an impact on the subsidies. Gov. Jay Nixon signed the legislation into law this week. A group of Maryland Heights residents committed to a healthy balance of residential and commercial growth have already joined environmental groups in registering disapproval of developing the open space between the Missouri River and Creve Coeur Lake. The voices of dissent

ST. LOUIS > Man accused of raping child • Aaron Burns, 20, of the 900 block of Pike Court in unincorporated north St. Louis County, was charged Thursday in St. Louis with repeatedly raping a child. He was charged with 17 counts of rape or attempted rape, statutory rape, kidnapping, and sodomy or attempted sodomy. Court records say that in March and April, Burns held the 10-year-old girl down and sexually assaulted her at least four times in diferent rooms of her St. Louis home. Police were notiied after the girl told one of her teachers. Burns was not in custody Thursday. Circuit Judge Paula Perkins Bryant set bail at $200,000, cash-only. ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Man accused of sexually abusing child • Deevan Dixon, 58, of the 10000 block of Toelle Lane in Riverview, has been charged with sexual abuse of a child younger than 12. Dixon, 58, was charged Friday with irstdegree statutory sodomy for the alleged Dixon abuse, which authorities say took place between early 2007 and late 2009 in the county. The connection between Dixon and the girl wasn’t clear. St. Louis County Associate Circuit Court Judge Joseph Dueker ordered Dixon held in lieu of $100,000 bail, cash-only. ST. LOUIS > Suspect arrested in fatal stabbing • A man was killed and a female companion wounded in a stabbing northwest of downtown early Thursday. Police said the incident occurred just after midnight in the 1400 block of Clinton Street, a largely vacant block between North Florissant Avenue and Interstate 70. Police said Ricky Gillespie, 35, of the 3100 block of Chouteau Avenue, was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman, 31, was taken to a hospital with cuts and was listed as stable. Police said the woman identiied the attacker as an acquaintance, who was arrested. Police said the suspect is a man, 31.

include the St. Charles County Council, which has passed legislation opposing projects with the potential to flood property on the opposite side of the river. Supporters contend that opposition to the development is grounded in antipathy toward Kroenke, who disparaged St. Louis and its fan base prior to the Rams’ move back to Los Angeles. Vying with Bornstein and Kroenke are: • Texas-based Hat Trick Consultants, which announced plans in 2015 to build a hockey-themed venue in Fenton. • Altus Properties, based in

Clayton, which has commercial and retail space in Minneapolis and in the St. Louis region. Its holdings include Magna Place in Brentwood. • Panattoni Development, headquartered in California, which manages properties throughout the U.S. and Canada. • Creve Coeur Airport, a general aviation facility that occupies about 400 acres within the proposed development district. • SLCSW Farm, which owns the Maryland Heights acreage occupied by Thies Farm and Greenhouse.

ST. LOUIS > Suspect charged in downtown gunire • A St. Louis man was charged Thursday for iring shots after a robbery attempt in May that was captured by a downtown restaurant’s surveillance camera. Cory Muldrew Jr., 19, of the 4200 block of Lee Avenue, was charged with robbery, assault, property damage, possession of an illegal weapon and two counts of armed criminal action. Court documents say Muldrew tried to rob a pizza delivery driver with a semiautomatic Muldrew handgun in the 800 block of Washington Avenue about 2 a.m. May 24. The victim got into his car and drove away, but Muldrew allegedly followed him and ired several shots, one of which hit a window of the St. Louis Public Library’s central express branch inside the Old Post Oice, 815 Olive Street. No one was injured. When Muldrew was arrested, court documents say, he had “metal knuckles” in his pocket. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, cash-only. ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Single-car crash leaves one dead • Troy V. Green, 47, of the Spanish Lake area, was killed Thursday in a one-car accident on Missouri Highway 367 south of North Lindbergh Boulevard, the Missouri Highway Patrol said. The northbound 2006 Dodge Charger that Green was driving left the roadway on a turn near a creek at 4:10 a.m., crashed through a guardrail, overturned and went down an embankment. Green was thrown from the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene. SHREWSBURY > Driver dies in crash • Steilyn Gray Martin, 35, died in a single-car crash on Interstate 44 last week. Martin was westbound about 7 p.m. June 23 when his pickup left the road and struck a rock bluf, according to Shrewsbury Police Lt. Brian Catlett. He said authorities were still investigating why Martin’s truck left the road. Martin was pronounced dead at a hospital.

List of ambulance visits to clinic released Calls averaged 1 every 46 days; abortion foes wanted records BY BLYTHE BERNHARD St. Louis Post-dispatch

The St. Louis Fire Department recently released a list of emergency calls to the Planned Parenthood clinic in the Central West End as part of a settlement in a lawsuit filed by an anti-abortion group. The document shows 58 emergency calls to the health clinic from Jan. 1, 2009, to April 6, 2016, or about one call every 46 days. It does not specify whether calls are related to abortions. More than half of the calls were for general concerns including allergic reactions, fainting, falls, seizures, psychiatric issues and illnesses. Mary Kogut, CEO of Planned Parenthood St. Louis, said there were about 135,000 patient visits during that time period, plus staff and visitors to the building. In addition

disorders treated by the clinic. If every case of hemorrhaging were linked to an abortion, the complication rate would total less than 0.1 percent of the more than 35,000 abortions performed at the clinic since 2009. The general rate of serious complications for abortion is less than 1 percent, or similar to the rate for colonoscopies, according to a study published in 2015 in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology. About one-third of abortions are induced by

to abortion, the clinic provides routine medical care to men and women, cancer screenings, sexually transmitted disease tests, permanent birth control procedures and counseling. “I think it is a sign of a quality provider to really know when patients are in need of care greater than we can provide,” Kogut said. There were 23 emergency calls from the clinic for hemorrhages, or heavy bleeding, which is a potential complication of abortion. Hemorrhaging can also be triggered by other

St. Louis attorneys argued that the reports are protected by federal patient privacy laws and state law preventing the release of information that can be used to identify someone’s medical treatment. The document released in the settlement does not include identifying information. Myers’ attorney Daniel Baker of Sedalia, Mo., called the number of 911 calls from the clinic “astounding.” “It’s macabre to know that this is going to continue, that there will be another ambulance in a couple months,” he said.

The local lawsuit was settled in May with the release of the list of ambulance calls. Under Missouri law, incident reports generated by police or fire departments that list the date, time, location and “immediate facts and circumstances” of an emergency call are considered public information.

Bosnian lag over City Hall?

A St. Louis resident wants the Bosnian flag to be the next flag to fly at City Hall, to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre in July. John Hadley, 18, started a petition Saturday asking people to support his efort to fly the Eastern European country’s flag at City Hall. The number of signatures on the petition surpassed 200 names on Wednesday. Hadley’s new goal is to reach 500 supporters. He says he plans to email the petition to Mayor Francis Slay. The petition calls for the flag to fly July 11-22 to commemorate the anniversary of the mass killing of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys by the Bosnian Serb army in Srebrenica during the Bosnian War over two decades ago. Tens of thousands of Bosnians live in St. Louis, making it one of the largest concentrations of Bosnian residents outside of Europe. “I had been thinking about how St. Louis could remember those who died in Srebrenica. I felt there could be a simple way to recognize the Bosnians living in St. Louis while still making a big statement,” wrote Hadley in an email. In June, St. Louis became the third city in the United States to fly the transgender flag over its city hall. The flag was raised to a spot just below the American flag on June 20. Hadley said the flag gave him the idea to create his own petition. “I thought City Hall flying the transgender flag showed how inclusive and diverse St. Louis is,” said Hadley, a student at Fontbonne University. Hadley is not Bosnian, but he said he wanted to find a way to recognize the community because of Bosnian friends who made him feel welcome in St. Louis when he moved to the city five years ago. Mayoral spokeswoman Maggie Crane said the office wasn’t aware of the petition but was interested in learning more about Hadley’s efort. But the process of suggesting a flag to the city isn’t an arduous one, Crane said, and doesn’t require a petition. It can be as simple as writing an email, explaining the cause and the flag and providing a flag, she said.

medications. The most common surgical abortion procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes under local anesthesia. “Abortion care is basic health care, some of the safest health care that we provide anywhere in any capacity,” said Dr. David Eisenberg, medical director of Planned Parenthood St. Louis.

Kinloch discusses contracting out for policing; TV reporter arrested

DIGEST

BY JOE HOLLEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

1st Lt. Daniel P. Riordan, 24, of Sunset Hills, was among four soldiers killed when roadside bomb hit their vehicle on in Taji, Iraq, in 2007.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Post oice is dedicated to fallen soldier • A St. Louis-area post oice has been dedicated to an Army lieutenant killed in Iraq in 2007. U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, was the keynote speaker at the ceremony Thursday to rename the Sappington Post Oice after the late Lt. Daniel P. Riordan. He was 24 when he was killed by a roadside bomb. “This is the very least I could do,” Wagner said. “What’s wonderful about post oice dedications are those plaques are there every day of the year that the post oice is open. “People can be reminded of those who fought and died.” Wagner introduced three resolutions last year to change the names of post oices to honor soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. As rain rattled on the roof of the tent covering the ceremony, family members and friends repeatedly mentioned Riordan’s faith, honor and service. (Ashley Lisenby) WASHINGTON > St. Louis area Jewish institutions get security grants • The U.S. Department of

Homeland Security has awarded grants totaling $370,000 to St. Louis area Jewish institutions to help them deter security threats. The grants were announced Thursday by U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis. “No one should be afraid to practice their faith in peace, and we stand together in solidarity against the hate and fanaticism that has no regard for human life,” Clay said in a news release. The money is coming from the department’s Preparedness Grant program, which is designed “to help state and local governments and nonproit institutions secure potential targets against security risks.” The grants announced Thursday are going to: • Central Reform Congregation — $75,000. • Congregation Temple Israel — $75,000. • Jewish Federation of St. Louis — $30,000. • Missouri Torah Institute — $75,000. • Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School — $75,000. • The Gladys & Henry Crown Center — $40,000. (From staf reports)

KINLOCH • Municipal oicials here met Thursday to discuss the possibility of contracting with an outside police department to protect the historically black town in north St. Louis County. But talking was the only action taken. City Manager Justine Blue said no vote was called at the special meeting. Blue said the department of 10 officers, some part time, struggles financially. The town’s three patrol cars are not covered by insurance, as revealed in a report by Fox 2 News. She said that should be corrected by Sept. 30. When asked about the potential problem of having oicers operating uninsured vehicles, Blue noted that

“we only go out when needed,” and said officers “are directed to drive carefully and exercise extreme caution.” Benjamin Hoover Sr., a fourthgeneration resident of Kinloch, attended the meeting. Hoover said he had no strong opinion as to whether the town should maintain its own department or contract out the work. “I just want to make sure this city doesn’t become unincorporated,” Hoover said. In 1948, Kinloch became the first city in Missouri incorporated by blacks. Once boasting about 10,000 residents, it has shrunk to about 200. But the dwindling population is not the only hit the city treasury has taken. In recent years, one mayor went to prison for stealing city

funds, and other oicials have had their financial practices questioned. Fox 2 News reporter Chris Hayes was arrested when he tried to bring a TV camera into the meeting Thursday. Video aired by the station showed a police officer handcuffing Hayes and the reporter shackled to a holding bench after he questioned police about why the camera was barred. Hayes reported that he was issued a court summonses for disorderly conduct and failure to comply and released after he posted bail. He has a September court date. Missouri law states: “A public body shall allow for the recording by audiotape, videotape, or other electronic means of any open meeting.” Joe Holleman • 314-340-8254 @stlsherpa on Twitter jholleman@post-dispatch.com

Charter schools now open to transfers Under new law, Normandy, Riverview Gardens students get more options; snags remain BY ELISA CROUCH St. Louis Post-dispatch

Students in the Normandy and Riverview Gardens school districts will have the option of attending charter schools in St. Louis under legislation Gov. Jay Nixon signed into law last week. The legislation is intended to give children in unaccredited districts more educational options by opening the doors of such schools as St. Louis L a n g u a ge I m m e rs i o n Schools, Grand Center Arts Academy and those in the KIPP network — schools that had largely been limited only to children in St. Louis. The law is to take efect this fall. But school districts and charter schools aren’t exactly clear on how to make the change. Many of the qualifying charter schools don’t have space for more students. The deadline for students to apply to transfer out of the Normandy and Riverview Gardens districts was in February. This week, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issued guidance advising parents to notify their home districts no later than Aug. 1 if they want to transfer to charter schools.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Man who exported ivory to China pleads guilty • A man from St. Peters pleaded guilty to a federal charge in U.S. District Court here Wednesday and admitted using a corrupt customs oicial to send elephant ivory to China.

CHRISTIAN GOODEN • cgooden@post-dispatch.com

Kindergarten teacher Hazen Fairbanks talks to Jayceon Street during graphing exercises in April at KIPP Victory Academy in St. Louis. Many charter schools that qualify to take transfer students don’t have the space.

But that guidance didn’t specify whether the parents needed to have already met the initial application deadline, or whether unaccredited districts needed to reopen the process. “It’s just added more confusion to an already complicated situation,” said Melanie Powell-Rob-

auction houses across the U.S. to China since 2011, his plea agreement says. Qing has been a collector of antiques, including those made of ivory, for decades. In 2011, he met another collector at an auction in Miami and said that he had a relationship with a Chinese customs oicial that allowed him to falsely label packages containing elephant ivory as toys or dinnerware. Qing also used false mailing and return

inson, spokeswoman for the Riverview Gardens School District. In the Normandy Schools Collaborative, school officials are still reviewing the legislation. They are working with attorneys on the interpretation, said Candice CarterOliver, assistant superin-

addresses and falsiied the value of the packages, his plea says. Alerted to the package by Qing, the customs oicial would send it to its true destination within China, the plea says. Qing admitted sending between $95,000 and $150,000 worth of elephant ivory to China since 2011. Qing could face at least two years in prison. Qing is scheduled to be sentenced in September.

tendent. This will be the fourth year that hundreds of students from Normandy and Riverview Gardens will be enrolling in districts with better accreditation ratings in hopes of greater opportunity. In 2013 the Missouri Supreme Court upheld the school transfer

law, allowing students to cross district boundaries and attend district schools in the city, and in St. Louis and St. Charles counties. Because the law makes no mention of charter schools, which are public but independent, Normandy and Riverview Gardens students have not

attended them, though families from both districts have asked about enrolling. “The opportunity for families to transfer from an unaccredited district to a charter school is a positive thing,” said Doug Thaman, executive director of the Missouri Charter Public School Association. “The intent of charter schools is to provide a quality education to public school students.” But first, a charter school must qualify to accept transfer students. This means a charter school organization must have an average score of at least 70 percent on its Missouri annual performance report, which indicates strong academics and attendance. Qualifying schools include Premier Charter School and Gateway Science Academy. Schools that have been open for less than three years, such as Hawthorne Leadership School for Girls and the Biome, also may receive transfer students. The number of transfer applications has dropped significantly since 2013, when more than 2,200 students applied to leave the two districts.

Deputy marshal arrested after mass shooting threat BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • An armed city deputy marshal told a coworker this week that he was quitting his job and “going out with a bang, ABB style,” authorities said Thursday. Christopher E. McDonald, 48, of the 5500 block of Delmar Boulevard in St. Louis, was charged Thursday with making a terrorist threat, a felony. McDonald allegedly told a fellow deputy at the city municipal court building, 1520 Market Street, on Tuesday that he was planning to quit, and made reference to the 2010 mass shooting at the ABB plant in St. Louis. The second deputy told McDonald he didn’t want to get shot, and McDon-

ald said he would text him the night before so he could call in sick, accordMcDonald ing to court records. McDonald made further remarks to the other deputy indicating he might carry out his plan Wednesday, according to the records. McDonald was disarmed at work Wednesday and arrested, court records say. He admitted making statements to the second deputy. Circuit Judge Michael Mullen set cash-only bail at $10,000. McDonald made nearly $28,000 in salary in 2015, according to a city records. City marshals provide security at City Hall, munici-

pal courts and other city buildings. Maggie Crane, press secretary for Mayor Francis Slay, said McDonald was hired as a part-time guard in 2014 and then as a fulltime deputy marshal in March 2015. Crane applauded McDonald’s co-worker, police and prosecutors for acting quickly. “You just gotta take everything seriously,” she said. “You can’t take anything as idle threats.” In the ABB case, a disgruntled employee of the electrical parts manufacturer took four guns to work at the plant at 4350 Semple Avenue, killing three co-workers and wounding five before taking his own life.

died on Missouri roads — 18 more than at the same time last year. Of those killed this year, MoDOT said 60 percent were not buckled. “We’re always going to have crashes. The key is to survive that crash,” said Nothum, who stressed the importance of being belted in and not driving drunk. He said motorists will see more troopers on the highways this weekend, when AAA is predicting that a record number of drivers will be on the roads — nearly 43 million travelers, which is 5 million more than over the Memorial Day weekend. The group expects that most drivers around the country will pay the lowest Fourth of July gas prices in more than a decade. The average price for a gallon of gas in the St. Louis area, on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River, on Thursday was $2.21, according to AAA. That’s 46 cents below the year-earlier average. Prices were 10 cents lower on Wednesday, when Ashlee Wilson fueled up her Ford Escape at the Moto Mart on Riverview Drive just north of Inter-

state 270. She was on her way from Brookville, Ohio, to visit family in New Mexico. “I’ve got two girls,” said Wilson, 27. “And driving is cheaper than flying.”

CONSTRUCTION REPRIEVE The Missouri Department of Transportation will stop most construction through the weekend beginning at noon Friday. Traffic still will be restricted in areas with permanent barriers, such as on Interstate 44 between Southwest Avenue and Kingshighway, Interstate 55 over Reavis Barracks Road and on Interstate 70 between Fifth Street and Highway 94. Work is expected to resume at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

now have. She did not like what smartphones had done to friends and family, unable to carry on a conversation without the distraction of downward glances at a lighted screen. “I didn’t want to be on my phone all the time,” Anderson said. “I didn’t want to be that person. “But,” Anderson said as she looked at the phone cradled in her hand, “I like it.” Anderson signed up for the “Getting to Know Your Android” class offered by OASIS Institute, a nonprofit based in St. Louis that ofers a wide range of courses, recreational activities and tutoring opportunities for adults 65 and over across the country. Classes are also ofered for iPhone users. Technology classes have been central to the oferings of OASIS for 15 years. “Meet the Computer,” “Buying and Selling on eBay” and “Exploring the Internet” are current course oferings. But only in the past three years have smartphone classes become staples. “We introduced tablet and smartphone classes in March 2013, due to requests from our participants. Demand for these classes continues to grow,” said Amy VanDeVelde, who runs the national technology training program for OASIS. A Pew Research Center survey last year found that 64 percent of U.S. adults own a smartphone, compared with 35 percent in 2011. That jump, not surprisingly, is most notable among younger adults, who have grown up with the internet and hand-held devices. In 2015, 85 percent of people ages 18 to 29 owned a smartphone. By comparison, just 27 percent of those 65 and older owned a smartphone. Still, that was a jump from 2014. Earlier this week, at Crestview Senior Living, Anderson joined five other seniors in a class taught by Marge Williams, a volunteer and peer. Having a teacher in the same age group as the students is important, VanDeVelde said. Those who have grown up in a world of social media and texting are going to explain smartphone

usage differently than someone who remembers when phones were household fixtures, often hung on a wall and connected to a cord, she said. Williams has been a volunteer with OASIS for nine years, serving in various roles. With a growing interest in technology classes, she shifted her focus to helping other older adults become comfortable with their smartphones. As a retired computer programmer for what was then Laclede Gas, she saw it as a good fit. “Being a senior myself, I say: ‘I’ve had trouble with this, too,’” said Williams, of Chesterfield. “To let them know they are not the only ones.” To help the class see what she was doing, Williams plugged her smartphone into a laptop, using it as a projector for a large screen in the front of the room. “Where are Favorites?” she said, reviewing items she had taught the week before. “How do you check the battery level?” Williams then showed the stu-

dents how to connect to Wi-Fi, going through “Settings” to get online. The signal was slow, but working, Williams said. Up next: how to send a text. “Do you have to know the phone number to text?” asked Elsie Gorski, 72, of Twin Oaks. “Yes,” said Williams, and gave the students her phone number to send a test text. “So, Marge, how do we know you got it?” said Mary Ryan, of Kirkwood. “It will show on your phone that it was sent, but you won’t know I’ve read it until I respond,” Williams said. Ryan stared down at her phone, nodding. Ryan, 73, got her smartphone two months ago, the highlight, so far, a text to her 40-year-old daughter with a “guess who?” message. “My children are glad I’ve stepped into the 21st century,” Ryan said. “They’ve been dragging me by my heels.” She abandoned an eight-yearold flip phone.

Rauner signs partial spending plan Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, speaks Thursday on the Senate loor in Springield, Ill. State lawmakers approved a partial spending plan Thursday that would ensure schools stay open another year and give colleges and human services programs funding for six months. ASSOCIATED PRESS

BUDGET • FROM A1

About a dozen Illinois newspapers used their front pages Wednesday to publish editorials demanding that the two sides strike a deal and stop the bickering that has led to layoffs at colleges and forced social service providers to close their doors or make cuts. Before the 105-4 House vote, Democratic House Leader Barbara Flynn Currie acknowledged the plan doesn’t solve the state’s fiscal mess. “It is meant to keep the lights on,” she said. Illinois is the only state in the country without a full budget for this year. In all, lawmakers agreed to spend $25 billion in state and federal funds for the budget year that ended Thursday, and $50 billion for the fiscal year beginning Friday. Schools will get just over $11 billion to stay open for a full year. The agreement also provides Chicago some relief on pension payments for teachers, an idea Rauner had resisted until Democratic lawmakers agreed to lower the amount they wanted. But while schools and cash-strapped colleges and social service providers can breathe a sigh of relief, the partial spending plan also means both parties will face high-stakes elections in November to influence budget discussions in January when a new legislative session begins and money starts to run out. Republican House Leader Jim Durkin said it would have been “atrocious” and likely spurred a public revolt if lawmakers finished another fiscal year without a budget. He noted that even with the compromise, the ongoing budget standof between Rauner and Democrats who control the Legislature will be an election-year issue. “Mark my word that it will be articulated in the fall by various entities,” he said. For 18 months, Rauner has demanded business-friendly, union-weakening laws as a condition for agreeing to a spending plan that would include a tax hike. Democrats say the governor’s initiatives would hurt middle-class families and have nothing to do with the budget. The

partial budget won’t solve that ideological divide. While Rauner has not gotten his demands, he’s not giving up and said Thursday that November’s elections will determine whether his party has a greater voice to help him achieve what he wants. “This election will largely determine that outcome,” he said. Under the plan, schools are getting over $500 million more in state aid than they did last year. There will also be a $250 million “equity” grant to help schools with low-income students. Chicago would get $100 million of that. Part of the deal includes passing legislation to allow Chicago to raise $250 million in property taxes to help with teacher pension payments. A companion proposal will have the state cover $215 million in future pension costs beginning in June, like it does for all other Illinois school districts, but only if lawmakers pass legislation to reform the overall pension system next year. Democrats initially wanted $400 million in pension help for Chicago. The emerging plan calls for a $673 million increase for human services programs, including $20 million to restore programs that Rauner suggested eliminating. There is also $1 billion for colleges and universities — about 85 percent of what they received the last time the state approved higher-education funding. Various state agencies, including the Department of Corrections, are getting $709 million to cover operational expenses. Even before the partial budget agreement, a large chunk of Illinois’ spending was on autopilot because of court orders requiring payments to Medicaid and state employees. Those court orders will continue, increasing the state’s debt because the payments are happening at last year’s higher income tax rate of 5 percent, rather than the current 3.75 percent. Rep. Jack Franks, a suburban Chicago Democrat who voted no on Thursday’s funding measure, said it delays a longterm solution. “I don’t believe there’s any profiles in courage today,” he said.

falling out, and Ryan would hold it in place while she talked. Ryan came to the class at the convincing of her cousin Carol Jorgen, 72, of Fenton. Jorgen is a more seasoned smartphone user, getting hers as a Christmas present from her daughter. The phone has created a bit of a rift between mother and daughter, Jorgen said. “She expects me to pick this up right away,” Jorgen said of the new technology. Little by little, with the help of the class, Jorgen said she is figuring out the new gadget. “I do like texting. It comes in handy,” she said. But, “I’d much rather speak to someone than text.” “Me too,” Ryan said. “I like hearing their voice.” But Ryan and Jorgen are realists. People their age know that technology is changing along with communication habits. VanDeVelde tells her instructors to offer this advice: Get comfortable with texting. Open

Williams tries to hit the basics. So when her question: “Is anyone interested in coordinating their phone calendar with their PC?” was met with silence, she moved on. The class was more interested in how to take photos, access them from their phone and attach them to a text. Williams held up her phone and explained that the camera was pointed toward the class. But it could also turn 180 degrees with a simple tap. “A selfie,” she said with a laugh. Click, click, click throughout the room. The class had learned a new smartphone function.

Policy change follows review, is likely to afect a small fraction in military MILITARY • FROM A1

Ending the transgender ban, which followed an extensive one-year review, will afect a small fraction of individuals serving in the armed forces, or about 0.1 percent of the approximately 2 million active and reserve members in the U.S. military. Under the new policy, transgender military personnel may serve openly beginning immediately. Efective Oct. 1, transgender troops already serving will be able to receive medical care and begin formally changing their gender identifications in the Pentagon’s personnel system. The Pentagon will also develop training materials by that date. By July 1, 2017, the military services will begin allowing transgender individuals to enlist, as long as they meet required standards and have been stable in their identified genders for 18 months. Service members must use the bathrooms, housing, uniforms and fitness standards of their birth gender until they complete their transition, have a doctor’s recommendation and a commander’s approval, and are legally listed in the Defense Department’s personnel system as their preferred gender. The military will provide health care coverage for any necessary medical care or treatment, including surgery. Cosmetic changes would not be included. In addition, the new policy gives commanders the flexibility to provide certain accommodations to troops going through gender transition, including changes in jobs, housing, training, deployments, or bathroom and shower use. The social and political ramifications of the change are likely to be felt broadly. The military has often been a trailblazer in taking steps against discrimination, most notably ending segregation of African-Americans in the 1940s. Critics in Congress were quick to respond. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said in a statement that the decision was “the latest example of the Pentagon and the president prioritizing politics over policy.” Privately, some senior military leaders believe the Pentagon is moving too fast and has not yet resolved issues related to implementation of the plan. In recent weeks, Carter has met with military chiefs to hear concerns and suggestions to ease the process. Gen. Joseph Dunford, former Marine commandant and now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staf, was noticeably absent during Carter’s announcement. Officials said he was hosting a general’s retirement party.

“This is my decision,” Carter said when asked about Dunford’s absence. “However, we have arrived at it together, the senior leadership of the department.” The new policy comes nearly five years after the formal end of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” which barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. Under that 17-year-old policy, thousands of men and women in uniform were expelled due to sexual orientation. Openly gay civilian employees at the Defense Department faced similar discrimination until 1995 because they often could not obtain security clearances needed to work in national security agencies. The Pentagon took its first significant step toward lifting the ban on transgender service members last July when Carter announced a six-month study designed to examine what it would take to make the change. At the time, transgender troops could not serve openly. If they revealed their transgender identity, they could be kicked out or denied re-enlistment solely on that basis. The Pentagon does not have a precise count of how many transgender men and women are in the services because until Thursday, they faced discharge if they revealed their identities. A study by RAND Corp., a Santa Monica, Calif.-based think tank, determined that out of an estimated 1.3 million active service members, as many as 6,630 transgender men and women will be affected by the change. The study, commissioned by the Pentagon, estimates that from 30 to 140 new hormone treatments a year could be initiated by transgender service members. In addition, 25 to 130 gender transitionrelated surgeries may be utilized a year among active service members. As a result, U.S. military health care costs are expected to increase by $2.4 million to $8.4 million. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, groups applauded the Pentagon for opening the door to equality for transgender soldiers. “With the repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ and the elimination of the combat exclusion rule on women, today’s historic step to end transgender discrimination completes the (President Barack) Obama administration’s successful efort to strengthen our armed forces by ensuring that service is based on people’s merit and not their personal identity,” said Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, an LGBT research institute based in San Francisco.

Lynch defends meeting with Bill Clinton Attorney general says impromptu discussion didn’t touch on investigations of Hillary Clinton BY KEN THOMAS associated Press

NEW YORK • Former President Bill Clinton spoke with Attorney General Loretta Lynch during an impromptu meeting in Phoenix, but Lynch said the discussion did not involve the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use as secretary of state. Lynch told reporters that the meeting at a Phoenix airport on Monday was unplanned and took place while the former president was waiting to depart and walked over to the attorney general’s plane after she landed there. Lynch was traveling with her husband and said her conver-

sation with the former president “was a great deal about his grandchildren” and their travels. They also discussed former Attorney General Janet Reno, whom they both know. “There was no discussion of any matter pending for the department or any matter pending for any other body. There was no discussion of Benghazi, no discussion of the State Department emails, by way of example,” Lynch said in Phoenix. The exchange took place as the FBI investigates the potential mishandling of sensitive information that passed through the server Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, used for personal and gov-

ernment correspondence as secretary of state. Republicans have called for an independent prosecutor, saying the Justice Department under a Democratic president should not be investigating a Democratic presidential candidate. “This incident does nothing to instill confidence in the American people that her department can fully and fairly conduct this investigation, and that’s why a special counsel is needed now more than ever,” Sen. John Cornyn of Texas said in a statement. Lynch, in a later meeting with reporters in Los Angeles, deflected questions about whether the meeting was appropriate — or

created an appearance of impropriety — given the investigation. She noted that the investigation is being conducted by career investigators and agents “who always follow facts and the law.” Despite the innocuous descriptions of the interaction, the encounter generated instant buzz in political circles. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on the Mike Gallagher radio show that the meeting was “really a sneak,” “so terrible” and “so horrible.” He also said it was “one of the big stories of this week, of this month, of this year.” “This is terrible, and nobody can understand why nothing’s happened,” Trump said. “And

you see a thing like this and, even in terms of judgment, how bad of judgment is it for him or for her to do this? I mean, who would do this?” David Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Twitter that he takes Lynch and the ex-president “at their word that their convo in Phoenix didn’t touch on probe. But foolish to create such optics.” Top Senate Democrats defended Lynch on Thursday. Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said her ethics “are the best.” The Washington Post contributed to this report.

U.S. sailors ill-prepared for Iran encounter, report says Patrol boat’s crew faces disciplinary action BY ROBERT BURNS associated Press

WASHINGTON • Weak leader-

ship, poor judgment, a lack of “warfighting toughness” and a litany of errors led to the embarrassing capture and detention by Iran of 10 U.S. sailors in the Persian Gulf in January, according to a Navy investigation released Thursday. Six oicers and three enlisted sailors have been disciplined or face disciplinary action. The report said the boat captains and crews were “derelict in performing their duties,” including failing to get approval before deviating from their planned transit route. The investigation also faulted them for failing to report an engine failure that led to their capture. The partially censored report also cited instances of unnamed

sailors violating the military’s code of conduct while in captivity. One sailor made “statements adverse to U.S. interests” during interrogation. A different sailor encouraged fellow crewmembers to eat food ofered to them while

being videotaped by the Iranians. A sailor was said to have failed to uphold the code of conduct standards when he ordered crewmembers to cooperate with the Iranian video production and “acquiesced” in making

an Iranian-scripted statement on camera in exchange for the crews’ release. Officials said that as a result, the Navy is stepping up training in adherence to the code of conduct.

The trouble for Riverine Command Boats 802 and 805, each with five sailors aboard, began even before they left port in Kuwait Jan. 12 on a short-notice, 300-mile journey to Bahrain, home of the Navy’s 5th Fleet. They were delayed, unprepared, poorly supervised and ill-suited for the mission, the report said. “Crewmembers lacked navigational awareness, proper communication with higher authority, and appreciation of the threat environment throughout the transit,” the report said. For each boat, two of the five on-board weapons were mounted but not manned. At least one sailor had been up all night with boat repairs. Their higher headquarters failed to arrange air or surface monitoring of the boats’ transit. Such monitoring “would likely have prevented” the sailors’ capture by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, the report said. In addition to the range of problems that plagued the crew and the sailors’ chain of command, the incident has raised questions about the Navy’s preparedness in a waterway known to pose risks amid tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

Trump weighs in on abortion decision

BY DAVID CRARY associated Press

NEW YORK • Planned Parenthood says it will work with its abortion-rights allies in eight states to repeal laws that may be vulnerable following the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down tough abortion restrictions in Texas. The repeal campaign, announced Thursday, will initially target laws in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia, as well as measures in Texas that were not directly addressed by the Supreme Court ruling. Laws in other states may be targeted later. “We will fight back state by state and law by law until every person has access to safe, legal abortion,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “No matter how long it takes, these laws will fall.” On Monday, in a 5-3 ruling, the Supreme Court struck down regulations in Texas that required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, and forced abortion clinics to meet hospital-like physical standards. More than half of the state’s 41 abortion clinics closed since the law passed in 2013. The Supreme Court’s ruling held that the regulations are medically unnecessary and unconstitutionally limit a woman’s right to an abortion. Soon after the ruling was announced, Texas-style laws were nullified in Mississippi, Wisconsin and Alabama. Here are the targets of the repeal campaign: • Missouri: State laws require abortion doctors to have privileges at nearby hospitals and clinics to meet hospital-like standards. The admittingprivileges law ended access to abortion in a Columbia facility, leaving the state with only one health center that provides abortions, Planned Parenthood in St. Louis. • Virginia: Regulations require hospital-like outpatient surgery

standards for abortion clinics. Two clinics have closed since the regulations were approved in 2011, citing the new rules as one of the reasons. The regulations are being reconsidered by the state board of health. • Florida: Planned Parenthood is seeking repeal of an omnibus bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott that says doctors who perform abortions must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, or the abortion clinic must have a patient transfer agreement. It also prevents any state funds being used to pay for services provided by an organization that also provides abortions. • Arizona: Planned Parenthood said it would work with Democratic leaders in the legislature to repeal multiple laws restricting abortion access, including measures like those that were struck down in Texas. • Michigan: State regulations require health centers to be licensed as freestanding surgical outpatient facilities. • Pennsylvania: A Democratic state senator, Daylin Leach, already has said he will introduce legislation seeking to repeal a 2011 law that tightened requirements at abortion clinics. • Tennessee: Texas-style restrictions in Tennessee already are the target of litigation. Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Commit-

tee, predicted the repeal campaign would not gain traction in state legislatures. “The only way the abortion industry has been able to advance the abortion cause is through the courts,” she said. “They will have to judge-shop and find which judges were appointed by pro-abortion presidents.” Meanwhile, she said, antiabortion activists would press ahead with their eforts to enact additional restrictions on abortion.

INDIANA RULING In Indiana on Thursday, a federal judge blocked a law that would have banned abortions sought because of a fetus’ genetic abnormalities, saying that the state does not have the authority to limit a woman’s reasons for ending a pregnancy. U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt granted a preliminary injunction sought by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, which argued that the law was unconstitutional and violated women’s privacy rights. The law was set to take efect Friday. North Dakota is the only other state that prohibits abortions because of genetic abnormalities or because of the race, gender or ancestry of a fetus.

He jabs at Clinton, blames makeup of court BY JOSE A. DELREAL Washington Post

On Thursday, Donald Trump weighed in on abortion rights for the first time since the Supreme Court struck down abortion clinic restrictions in Texas, breaking a peculiar three-day silence on the issue that raised eyebrows among political observers and his socially conservative supporters. The court declared Monday that burdensome restrictions on abortion clinics in Texas are unconstitutional, a decision that could carry sweeping consequences for other states with similar laws, including Missouri. Legal experts consider it the most significant decision on abortion rights in a generation. Trump, who boasts high support among Christian evangelical voters, did not immediately detail his thoughts on the decision. Speaking Thursday on the issue, Trump said the decision would not have come down the way it did if he had been president. “Now if we had Scalia … or if Scalia was replaced by me, you wouldn’t have had that. OK? It would’ve been the opposite,” Trump told radio host Mike Gallagher during an interview, referring to late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February. Justice Anthony Kennedy

voted with the court’s liberals in the 5-3 decision. Contrary to Trump’s comments, the decision would probably have fallen 5 to 4 if Scalia had been alive. Trump also said that the decision was the first of many liberal victories to come if his likely Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, wins the presidency in November. On the campaign trail, Trump has regularly talked about Supreme Court appointments to elevate the stakes of the race. “You know, there’s your first example right there … that’s going to be the first of many. And if she gets in, if she gets in, you won’t even have to question. You wouldn’t even have to bother going to court. You’re going to know the answers,” he said. Trump took the opportunity to fire a shot at Chief Justice John Roberts, whom he has regularly assailed on the campaign trail for voting with the court’s liberals on cases related to the Afordable Care Act that have come before the court. “Now, you know, when you appoint judges sometimes, they change their minds, because you had that in the case of Obamacare with John Roberts,” Trump said. “I mean, who would’ve thought that could’ve happened? He could’ve killed it twice, and he didn’t.”

Trump’s opening acts raise eyebrows

DIGEST

One called Clinton a racist, while another said Sanders, a Jew, needed to meet Jesus BY JILL COLVIN Associated Press

ASSOCIATED PRESS

In this 2013 photo, a woman kayaks on the normally serene Kintla Lake in Glacier National Park, Mont. A grizzly bear attacked and killed a 38-year-old mountain biker Wednesday as he was riding along a trail.

‘Serial’ podcast igure granted a new trial After spending 16 years in prison for the killing of his former high school girlfriend, a man at the center of popular podcast “Serial” has a chance at freedom. Retired Baltimore Circuit Judge Martin Welch ruled Thursday that Adnan Syed, 35, deserved a new trial because his lawyer didn’t challenge testimony in the case that became the focus of the podcast, which captivated millions of listeners around the world. Syed was convicted in 2000 of murdering Hae Min Lee a year earlier and burying her in a shallow grave in a park in northwest Baltimore. He was sentenced to life in prison. In his order, Welch agreed with Syed’s attorney that his original attorney, Cristina Gutierrez, provided “inefective assistance for the failure to cross-examine the state’s cell tower expert about the reliability of cell tower location evidence” placing Syed near the burial site. Wildlife oicials hunt killer bear • Wildlife oicials set traps, installed wilderness cameras and scouted the Montana woods by helicopter Thursday for the bear that attacked and killed a U.S. Forest Service employee as he rode a mountain bike along a trail outside Glacier National Park. Brad Treat, 38, was knocked

of his bike Wednesday after he and another rider apparently surprised the bear — a grizzly, according to initial and stillunconirmed accounts — in the Flathead National Forest, authorities said. The other rider, whose name was not released, went to get help and was not hurt. Bears that attack humans are killed if it is found that they displayed predatory behavior, such as stalking the person, or consumed their victim. In this case, oicials said it’s too soon to say what will be done to the bear if it is found. “One of the things that is key to all this is whether it was a predatory act,” said Ron Aasheim, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman. “I don’t think there’s any sense that this was predatory.” Indiana birth certiicate law ‘discriminatory’ • A judge has ordered Indiana to list both spouses in lesbian marriages as parents on their children’s birth certiicates and end what she calls its “discriminatory” practice of listing only the birth mother. U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt ruled Thursday in favor of eight lesbian couples who sued the state and county health departments. Pratt said the state’s conduct was unconstitutional. Pratt wrote that there’s “no conceivable important

governmental interest” to justify treating female spouses of artiicially inseminated birth mothers diferent from male spouses of artiicially inseminated birth mothers. An attorney for the couples, Karen Celestino-Horseman, says the rulings puts the families “on the same level as opposite-sex couples.” A spokesman for the state’s attorneys says they’re reviewing the ruling. Study compares occupations’ suicide rates • In a study of suicide rates by occupation, the workers that killed themselves most often were farmers, lumberjacks and ishermen. Researchers found the highest suicide rates in manual laborers who work in isolation and face unsteady employment. High rates were also seen in carpenters, miners, electricians and people who work in construction. Mechanics were close behind. The lowest rate was in teachers, educators and librarians. Thursday’s report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is perhaps the largest U.S. study to compare suicide rates among occupations. The study looks at about 12,300 of the more than 40,000 suicide deaths reported in the nation in 2012. From news services

WASHINGTON • Conservative radio host and columnist Howie Carr, opening for Donald Trump at a presidential campaign rally in Maine, brought up Hillary Clinton and her potential running mate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren. “You know Elizabeth Warren, right?” Carr asked the crowd. He then put his hand up to his mouth and mimicked a stereotypical Native American war cry — the same call that Trump supporters sometimes let fly when Trump mentions Warren at his events. That’s because Trump regularly refers to Warren as “Pocahontas,” for her claim that she is part Native American. The nickname and other Trump comments have been derided by some as ofensive. But Carr, in a column Thursday in the Boston Herald, said that Trump advised him offstage: “‘Whatever you do, don’t apologize.’” “‘You never hear me apologize, do you?’” Trump added, according to Carr. “That’s what killed Jimmy the Greek way back. Remember? He was doing OK till he said he was sorry.” It was a reference to Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder, a sports commentator who was fired from CBS after saying that black athletes were “bred” to be better athletes than whites when they were slaves. Carr’s account is the latest example of controversy stirred by provocative Trump surrogates who go even further in their opening acts than the typically unguarded candidate. The goal is to rile up Trump’s rowdy crowds at the events, which often are compared to rock concerts. Trump’s team typically invites local elected officials who have endorsed him to speak, and familiar faces often join the tour. South Carolina pastor Mark Burns delivers his sermon-

like speeches in a full-throated shout. Senior aide Stephen Miller typically delivers the final speech before Trump takes the stage, offering a pointed takedown of Clinton. But often, in their efforts to pump up the crowd, the speakers make inaccurate and eyebrowraising remarks that, at least so far, appear to have drawn little response from the campaign. “We are incredibly grateful for (Carr’s) support, but as you know, he does not speak on behalf of the campaign,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said via email. Speaking at an event in Hickory, N.C., in March, Burns, the president of the Christian NOW Television Network, appeared to question the faith of Bernie Sanders, then Clinton’s rival for the Democratic nomination. “And Bernie Sanders, who doesn’t believe in God, how in the world are we gonna let Bernie, I mean, really!” he said of the Vermont senator, who is Jewish. “Listen, Bernie gotta get saved. He gotta meet Jesus, I don’t know. He gotta, he gotta have a comin’ to Jesus meeting,” he said. At a news conference later that month, Trump said he was unaware of what Burns had said about Sanders. “I didn’t hear this. When did he say this?” he asked. “I didn’t hear anything about it. ... Let me find out about it.” At a rally the next month in Tampa, Burns labeled Clinton a “racist,” going further than Trump has himself. “The thing that I truly despise about Hillary Clinton: She tries to call Donald Trump the racist. She’s the racist. She’s the racist,” he said, accusing Clinton of trying to divide people. Carr defended his comment. “As far as I know she’s a white person until proven otherwise. And I’m a white person. So how could it be racist?” he said on his radio show.

Iowa Supreme Court upholds ban on voting rights for felons “This ruling means that Iowa will continue to serve as a notorious outlier when it comes to restricting people’s right to vote,” said Julie Ebenstein, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union’s Voting Rights Project. Iowa’s top elections oicial, Secretary of State Paul Pate, a Republican, praised the ruling, saying it was in line with the constitution and state law. At issue was the interpretation of an 1857 clause in the Iowa Constitution declaring that no “person convicted of any infamous crime shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector.”

ASSOCIATED PRESS

IOWA CITY, IOWA • Convicted felons in Iowa may be automatically stripped of their voting rights for life unless the governor restores the rights, a divided Iowa Supreme Court ruled Thursday. The 4-3 decision permanently disenfranchises thousands of former ofenders and upholds Iowa’s status as one of the most restrictive states for voting by felons. Democrats and civil liberties advocates expressed disappointment in a court known for its 2009 ruling legalizing gay marriage and other progressive decisions.

Pine Lawn’s case for consolidation services. To generate revenue, they become increasingly dependent on traffic fines and court fees, which puts pressure on police to meet quotas and artificially boost citations. Numerous small north St. Louis County cities have the same problem, raising questions about the competency of officials who confuse artificial revenue generation with good governance. Pine Lawn’s mostly low-income residents shouldn’t tolerate being cited for minor offenses, followed by more serious actions when they can’t pay their fines. It’s exactly this situation that makes the city a prime candidate for municipal consolidation. Since few Pine Lawn leaders appear to be looking out for residents’ welfare, voters would be better off uniting to put the city out of existence. This newspaper has for the past couple of years supported consolidating the 1.3 million city and county residents into a handful of municipalities, instead of the 92 separate entities that currently exist. Data published by the nonprofit group Better Together show that the region’s fractured government is inefficient and expensive for taxpayers. This is not a racial problem, although black leaders in small North County municipalities distrust consolidation as a white effort to take away their selfgoverning power. Authorities in every municipality who care more about the citizens they serve than about hanging onto power should push for unified government. Consolidation needs to happen, and Pine Lawn should lead the way.

Public doesn’t need the irepower of assault weapons I wonder, would our forefathers have ratified the Second Amendment as they did had their firearms of 1791 been as sophisticated as today’s? How many times a minute can a musket be fired? How many times a minute can today’s assault weapons be fired? I own both pistols and rifles and I will never surrender them ... nor will I ever own an assault rifle or high-capacity firearm. I trust our armed services and our police force in those situations that call for firepower of assault weapons. Very few killings are justified. Killings with assault weapons by unauthorized people are never justified. There is no excuse for the carnage that happened at Sandy Hook, Orlando, etc. Our politicians need to work together to ban assault weapons from the public and work toward a plan to keep traditional firearms out of the hands of those who are unstable: criminals, terrorists, etc. If we are going to continue to hide behind the Second Amendment and not write laws that can make the amendment work in the 21st century, then let’s send our do-nothing politicians home and use their salary and benefits to pay toward our national debt. If the politicians don’t act to change the laws on assault weapons and if the public allows them to continue their inaction, will your child be included in the next Sandy Hook ... or will you or someone you love be one of those in the next Orlando? With assault weapons available to anyone who has the money to purchase one, it will happen again. George Ramsey • Wildwood

‘Immigrant’ and ‘illegal immigrant’ aren’t interchangeable

Our view • State audit underscores why fractured government doesn’t work. Pine Lawn, persistent poster child for municipal government gone awry, is in the news again because of a state auditor’s finding that the North County community may owe the state more than $400,000 from collected fines. The problems in Pine Lawn are sometimes laughable, like when the former highly paid nonresident mayor used the code “Mountain Dew,” to eke more bribe money from a towing company and convenience store owner he was shaking down. But the problems aren’t funny. The 3,425 hardy souls who live in Pine Lawn deserve better. They need police who protect them, courts that help oversee their welfare and elected city officials who respect the citizens who pay their salaries. Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway released a report Tuesday that shares many points made by the late auditor Tom Schweich in his 2011 report on Pine Lawn. Not much has changed. Galloway’s report says Pine Lawn owes the state about $400,000 because it collected more than $1.2 million from traffic fines last year, accounting for 46 percent of its revenue. State law at the time capped such collections at 30 percent. In giving the city the lowest of four possible ratings, a “poor,” Galloway also dinged the Circuit Court for imposing improper fees and having missing and incomplete records. The city’s troubles are an example of what happens in too many impoverished municipalities whose tax bases no longer cover the cost of basic city

Let me get this straight: By the grace of the U.S. Constitution, a child born in the U.S. of illegal immigrant parents is automatically a U.S. citizen, even though the only reason he or she was born here is because his/her parents entered the country illegally. And now the fact of that child’s citizenship is supposed to be a reason not to deport the illegal immigrant parents? What kind of a circular argument is that? As for the argument against “splitting up the family”: The parents made a choice to enter the country illegally; unlike AfricanAmericans, they were not brought here as slaves. It is also their choice if they want to keep their family together — by moving their entire family back to their home country, which is where they should have stayed in the first place. One final point: The Democrats like to use the words “immigrant” and “illegal immigrant” interchangeably. They are not. Being against granting amnesty to illegal immigrants/aliens does not mean you are anti-immigration. In fact, I would think that the people who would be most adamant against granting amnesty would be the immigrants who came here legally. They must feel like suckers for going to all of the time and trouble to come here legally, and now watch as people advocate granting amnesty to all of the people who decided to ignore the rules.

Playing the game of heinous comparisons So doctrinaire liberal columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. thinks it’s perfectly fine to namecall Donald Trump as Hitler (“Yes, Hitler,” June 21). In fact, he implies that it’s almost a moral responsibility to do so. I’m no fan of Trump. It’s seriously depressing that he is very likely to be the Republican nominee for president. The only worse person for the job I can think of is the unaccomplished, lying and thoroughly corrupt Hillary Clinton. But if heinous com-

Disabled people have avenues to become politically active In every major election cycle, the focus inevitably turns to demographics, and which minority populations the various candidates must court in order to win their elections. However, the largest minority group in the United States rarely gets mentioned; people with disabilities make up 16.5 percent of the population between ages 21 and 64, and 51.8 percent of people over 65. Because people with disabilities come from diverse ethnicities, religions and socioeconomic backgrounds, they are rarely considered as a single voting bloc. This ignores the reality that millions of people with disabilities share an interest in ensuring that they receive adequate community support services, access to needed programs and therapies, and consistent, afordable health care. The availability of all those programs and services is determined almost entirely by state and federal laws. The ability to influence that legislation is imperative to the quality of life for people with disabilities. Voting is the first step. I encourage anyone out there with a disability to become active in the political system. If you have not yet registered to vote, you can do it online, at the secretary of state’s website, sos.mo.gov. If you don’t have a computer, you can call the secretary of state’s oice, 800-669-8683, for information on your local election oice. If you live in St. Charles, Lincoln or Warren counties, you can call the Delta Center for Independent Living at 636-926-8761 to find other ways to become politically involved. If you live in St. Louis city or county, call Paraquad at 314-289-4200. Whatever you do, do something. Lisa Ezeamii • St. Peters Advocacy coordinator, Delta Center for Independent Living

Regulations make it harder to donate blood I have been a regular, consistent blood donor at Mercy Hospital St. Louis for over a decade. I am there at least once if not twice a month. I recognize the staff workers and they recognize me. I derive no benefit for taking time out of my busy life to perform this life-extending service. It is an honor to be able to do so. However, recent Food and Drug Administration regulations seem designed to discourage people like me from continuing this vital service. I have to show a photo ID every time I donate. My donor file is inches thick due to the number of times I have given. Yet, I have to prove who I am each time I walk through the door. Is the FDA’s goal to make it harder and more annoying for volunteers? These are the kinds of actions that deter people who are freely giving their time from participating. I can pay the Transportation Security Administration $85 to bypass security at the airport. Why must I go through all of these hoops to donate platelets?

parisons is Pitts’ game, I’d like to play. For starters, how about Pitts himself?

Brexit lessons for U.S. leaders Government • Vote in Britain represents the disafection of millions of citizens. BY NIGEL HOLLOWAY

America and Europe are undergoing political turmoil whose dimensions are only starting to become clear. Britain’s scalding referendum that led to the country’s exit from the European Union marks a profound change, not just for the country’s relationship with its neighbors, but also in the relationship between Western governments and the governed. This includes the U.S., where the presidential election campaign has revealed deep fissures between the Establishment and the rest of society. On the face of it, Britain’s EU referendum does not seem relevant to the U.S., which is not part of regional political grouping. It marches to its own drummer. But on a broader level, the British vote provides lessons for leaders in every Western country, not least in America. In essence, the 52 percent vote in favor of leaving the EU (known as Brexit) represents the alienation of millions of citizens from the decisions taken on their behalf by their leaders. If those leaders do not learn and apply these lessons, the disaffection will worsen and our system of government will break down. The cause of this crisis has been gathering momentum for decades: an erosion of trust in our social institutions, primarily governmental, but also in other areas of public life, such as our churches, corporations and the media. We no longer believe what our institutions tell us. Their authority has been undermined.

AP

British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Trust is the glue that holds society together. If a husband and wife do not trust each other, their marriage is imperiled. Commercial life depends on our ability to trust the person on the other side of the transaction. The same is true in politics. Britons do not trust EU leaders in Brussels and will now go through a very messy divorce. There are many other Europeans who feel the same way. In America, as in Europe, the best of our generation of leaders have fled the political stage. A power vacuum has ushered in a breed of politician who is highly skilled at whipping up popular fears, most obviously fears about “the other.” It’s the oldest trick in the book to blame others for our misfortune. Where are the politicians of integrity who can calm

these fears? Many have pointed out the widening gulf between Western elites and the rest of society. It is one of the sources of this erosion of trust. The Establishment, in all its forms, has much to answer for. It has not governed well. It has lectured and not listened. It lives in a bubble, far removed from the everyday concerns of those who struggle to make ends meet. It does not need to build a wall; it already has an invisible one that seems impregnable. If the U.S. system of government is not to break down, then political leaders need to learn five lessons from the Brexit debacle: 1. Do not treat with disdain those who disagree with your viewpoint. 2. Step outside your comfort zone and learn at first hand what’s going wrong. 3. Calm fears; don’t fan them. 4. Serve the interests of the country as a whole, not your narrow aims. 5. Restore trust and accountability; don’t blame others. These five lessons are relevant in all walks of life, but they are particularly important as the U.S. girds for a searing general election. The electorate may turn its back on demagogues and insincere politicians in November, but if our leaders do not take steps to bridge the gulf between themselves and those they purport to lead, there will be a very severe reckoning. These are the lessons of Brexit. Nigel Holloway, a former senior editor at The Economist and Forbes, is a writer based in St. Louis.

Sovereign kingdom or little England? Vote’s aftermath • One casualty may be the United Kingdom itself. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Washington Post

Given their arrogance, pomposity and habitual absurdities, it is hard not to feel a certain satisfaction with the comeuppance that Brexit has delivered to the unaccountable European Union bureaucrats in Brussels. Nonetheless, we would do well to refrain from smug condescension. Unity is not easy. What began in 1951 as a six-member European Coal and Steel Community was grounded in a larger conception of a united Europe born from the ashes of World War II. Seven decades into the postwar era, Britain wants out and the EU is facing an existential crisis. Yet where were we Americans seven decades into our great experiment in continental confederation, our “more perfect union” contracted under the Constitution of 1787? At Fort Sumter. The failure of our federal idea gave us civil war and 600,000 dead. Europe had none of this. The European project tries to forge the union of dozens of

disparate peoples, ethnicities, languages and cultures, amid the searing memories of the two most destructive wars in history fought among and against each other. The result is the EU, a great idea badly executed. The founding motive was obvious and noble: to reconcile the combatants of World War II, most especially France and Germany, and create conditions that would ensure there could be no repetition. Onto that was appended the more utopian vision of a continental superstate that would once and for all transcend parochial nationalism. That vision blew up with Brexit on June 23. But we mustn’t underestimate the significance, and improbability, of the project’s more narrow, but still singular, achievement — peace. It has given Europe the most extended period of internal tranquility since the Roman Empire. (In conjunction, of course, with NATO, which provided Europe with its American umbrella against external threat.) Not only is there no armed conflict among European states. The very idea is inconceivable. (Fighting between the various nations has been subcontracted to soccer hooligans.) This on a

continent where war had been the norm for a millennium. Give the EU its due. Despite its comical faux-national paraphernalia of flag, anthem and useless parliament, it has championed and advanced a transnational idea that has helped curb the nationalist excesses that culminated in two world wars. Advanced not quite enough, however. Certainly not enough to support its disdainful,

often dismissive, treatment of residual nationalisms and their democratic expressions. Despite numerous objections by referendum and parliament, which it routinely either ignored or circumvented, the EU continued its relentless drive for more centralization, more regulation and thus more power for its unelected self. Such high-handed overriding of popular sentiment could go on only so long. Until June 23, 2016, to be precise. To be sure, popular sentiment was rather narrowly divided. The most prominent disparity in the British vote was generational. The young, having grown up in the new Europe, are more comfortable with its cosmopolitanism and have come to expect open borders, open commerce and open movement of people. They voted overwhelmingly — by 3 to 1 — to Remain. Leave was mainly the position of an older generation no longer willing to tolerate European assaults on British autonomy and sovereignty. Understandably so. Here is Britain, inventor of the liberal idea and home to the mother of parliaments, being instructed by a bunch of pastry-eating Brussels bureaucrats on everything from the proper size of

pomegranates to the human rights of terrorists. Widely mentioned, and resented, was the immigration directive to admit other EU citizens near automatically. But what pushed the Leave side over the top was less policy than primacy. Who runs Britain? Amazingly, about half of the laws and regulations that govern British life today come not from Westminster but from Brussels. Brexit was an assertion of national sovereignty and an attempt, in one fell swoop, to recover it. There is much to admire in that impulse. But at what cost? Among its casualties may be not just the European project (other exit referendums are already being proposed) but possibly the United Kingdom itself. The Scots are already talking about another vote for independence. And Northern Ireland, which voted to remain in the EU, might well seek to unite with the Republic. Talk about a great idea executed badly. In seeking a newly sovereign United Kingdom, the Brits might well find themselves having produced a little England.

New Filipino president stokes energy, fear Rodrigo Duterte vows lethal force against crime, insurgents: ‘If you destroy my country, I will kill you’ BY JIM GOMEZ AND TERESA CEROJANO Associated Press

MANILA, PHILIPPINES • Rodrigo Duterte was sworn in Thursday as president of the Philippines, with many hoping his maverick style will energize the country but others fearing he could undercut one of Asia’s liveliest democracies amid his threats to kill criminals en masse. The 71-year-old former prosecutor and longtime mayor of southern Davao city won a resounding victory in May’s elections in his first foray into national politics. He has described himself as the country’s first leftist president and said his foreign policy will not be dependent on the United States, a longtime ally. The frugal noontime ceremony at Malacanan, the Spanish colonial-era presidential palace by Manila’s murky Pasig River, was

a break from tradition sought by Duterte to press the need for austerity amid the country’s grinding poverty. In the past, the oathtaking has mostly been held at a grandstand in a historic park by Manila Bay, followed by a grand reception. Vice President Leni Robredo, a human rights lawyer who comes from a rival political party, was sworn in earlier in a separate ceremony in her office compound. Vice presidents are separately elected in the Philippines, and in a sign of Duterte’s go-it-alone style, he has not met her since the May 9 vote. Duterte, who began a six-year term, captured attention with promises to cleanse his poor Southeast Asian nation of criminals and government crooks within six months — an audacious pledge that was welcomed by many crime-weary Filipinos but alarmed human rights

watchdogs and the dominant Roman Catholic Church. Duterte’s inauguration address, before a crowd of more than 600 relatives, oicials and diplomats, was markedly bereft of the profanities, sex jokes and curses that were a trademark of his campaign speeches. There were no menacing death threats against criminals, but he pressed the urgency of battling crime and graft, promised to stay within the bounds of the law and appealed to Congress and the Commission on Human Rights “to mind your work and I will mind mine.” “There are those who do not approve of my methods of fighting criminality, the sale and use of illegal drugs and corruption. They say that my methods are unorthodox and verge on the illegal,” Duterte said. He added: “The fight will be relentless and it will be sustained.

Duterte’s rise. After his resounding victory, he promised to mellow down on the vulgarity and promised Filipinos will witness a “metamorphosis” once he becomes president. Days before his swearing in, however, he was still warning, “If you destroy my country, I will kill you,” in a speech this week. Duterte is also the first president to come from the country’s volatile south, scene of a decades-long separatist insurgency by minority Muslims. He has said he would direct security forces to refocus on fighting Muslim and Maoist insurgents. Duterte has suggested he will keep the U.S. at arm’s length and has shown readiness to mend frosty ties with China. Those potential shifts have raised the specter of another diicult phase in more than a century of a lovehate relationship between the Philippines the U.S.

“As a lawyer and a former prosecutor, I know the limits of the power and authority of the president. I know what is legal and what is not. My adherence to the due process and the rule of law is uncompromising,” he said to loud applause. Appearing Thursday night at a Manila slum to thank his poor voters, Duterte was soon back to his old form, calling on parents to kill the children of other families if they’re drug addicts “so it wouldn’t be that painful.” “I’ll tell you in the coming days, if you have a funeral parlor, you will earn a lot,” he said, sparking laughter. Shortly after Duterte’s election victory, police launched an anti-drug crackdown under his name, leaving dozens of mostly poor drug-dealing suspects dead in gunfights or in mysterious circumstances. The killings provided a fearsome backdrop to

Brexit topples another would-be leader Political drama unfolds like ‘House of Cards’ as ex-London mayor loses ally, drops out BY JILL LAWLESS associated Press

LONDON • In a real-life politi-

cal drama mixing Shakespearean tragedy with “House of Cards,” Britain’s victorious anti-EU campaigner Boris Johnson saw his chances of leading his country evaporate Thursday after the defection of a key ally. The former London mayor dropped his campaign to become Conservative Party leader and prime minister after Justice Secretary Michael Gove abruptly withdrew his support for Johnson and announced he would run himself. Johnson, a prominent campaigner for Britain’s withdrawal from the 28-nation European Union, told a news conference where he was expected to announce his candidacy that the next Conservative leader would need to unite the party and ensure Britain’s standing in the world. “Having consulted colleagues and in view of the circumstances in Parliament, I have concluded that person cannot be me,” he said to the astonishment of gathered journalists and supporters. Johnson paraphrased Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” saying it was “a time not to fight against the tide of history but to take

that tide at the flood and sail on to fortune.” It appeared to be a dig at Gove — the reference is to a line spoken by Brutus, the Roman leader’s ally turned assassin. Others drew a more contemporary parallel. “It makes ‘House of Cards’ look like ‘Teletubbies,’” Conservative lawmaker Nigel Evans told the BBC. Johnson’s departure makes Gove and Home Secretary Theresa May the favorites among five contenders to lead the Conservatives. It is an unexpected twist in a career that has seen the 52-yearold Johnson serve as journalist, lawmaker and mayor, building a public profile on Latin quips, cycling and rumpled eccentricity while nurturing a poorly concealed ambition to lead his country. Johnson’s decision to break with longtime ally Prime Minister David Cameron and back the “leave” side in Britain’s EU referendum seemed to have paid off when Cameron announced he would resign after last week’s vote in favor of exiting the bloc. Cameron’s announcement triggered a Conservative leadership race in which Johnson was expected be a front-runner, with Gove as his campaign manager. The two men had campaigned together to yank Britain from the

EU. But since their unexpected victory, they have been accused of failing to lay out concrete plans for Britain’s divorce from the bloc. Johnson addressed the issue in a Daily Telegraph column that seemed to say Britain would continue to enjoy most of the benefits of EU membership — a claim dismissed by European leaders as wildly unrealistic. That fueled concern among Conservatives who felt Johnson lacks the attention to detail to be a leader. Gove, a former journalist on the Rupert Murdoch-owned Times newspaper, had long disclaimed any ambition to be Britain’s leader. Asked earlier in June if he would run, he said: “Count me out.” Gove tried to explain the 180-degree turn Thursday, saying the country “needed someone who would be able to build a team, lead and unite.” “Boris is an amazing and an impressive person, but I’ve realized in the last few days that Boris isn’t capable of building that team and providing that unity,” he said. The first public signs of a split between Johnson and Gove came in an email from Gove’s wife, newspaper columnist Sarah Vine, obtained by Sky News on Wednesday. It suggested that Gove should ensure he had spe-

cific guarantees from Johnson before backing the latter’s bid. Vine added that influential media barons Murdoch and Paul Dacre, editor of the right-wing Daily Mail, “instinctively dislike” Johnson. Steven Fielding, professor of politics at the University of Nottingham, said Johnson “wasn’t trusted enough by the people who really wield power in British politics — Rupert Murdoch and Paul Dacre.” “Gove, as Rupert Murdoch’s representative in politics, basically knifed him,” Fielding said. The drama was a reminder of past ruthlessness in the Conservative Party, which has a history of overturning its leaders. Even its most successful prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, was ousted by her own party in 1990. Britain’s main opposition Labour Party is also in turmoil, but is finding it harder to change its leadership. Party chief Jeremy Corbyn is under intense pressure to resign after losing a confidence vote among his lawmakers. He says he still has the support of the party rank-and-file and of several influential trade unions. By Thursday, the situation had reached a stalemate: Corbyn would not resign and no Labour legislator had yet come forward to challenge him. Apart from Gove and May,

contenders for the Conservative leadership are Work and Pensions Secretary Stephen Crabb, Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom and former Defense Secretary Liam Fox. Conservative lawmakers will choose two finalists before more than 100,000 party members select the winner in a postal ballot. The result will be announced on Sept. 9. The bookies’ early favorite is May, 59, who is seen as a safe pair of hands as the country struggles to disentangle itself from the EU. Her six years as Britain’s interior minister, considered one of the toughest jobs in politics, gives her credibility to deal with the EU on the issue of immigration, sure to be one of the thorniest topics in the exit talks. Although May supported remaining in the EU during the referendum campaign, she said she would respect the vote result. “The United Kingdom will leave the EU,” she said, pledging to create a new government department devoted to negotiating Britain’s “sensible and orderly” departure from the bloc. The new prime minister will also have to deal with an economy weakened by the EU vote. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said Thursday that the economy had suffered a “large, negative shock.”

Plight of African lions worsens after killing of Cecil Backlash against American trophy hunter sparked some changes, but bigger problems lurk BY CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA associated Press

JOHANNESBURG • Some call it the Cecil the lion efect. A year ago, an American killed a lion in Zimbabwe in what authorities said was an illegal hunt, infuriating people worldwide and invigorating an international campaign against trophy hunting in Africa. Some conservationists, however, warn there are greater threats to Africa’s beleaguered lion populations, including human encroachment on their habitats and the poaching of antelopes and other animals for food, a custom that deprives lions of prey. The death of Cecil at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park raised lions’ profile on the “conservation radar,” but most substantive steps in lion conservation since then have been directed against trophy hunting rather than bigger problems depleting lion numbers, said Luke Hunter, president of Panthera, a conservation group. Those measures include airline bans on the transport of parts of lions, rhinos, elephants and other wild animals shot in hunts. In a report marking the anniversary of Cecil’s death in early July 2015, Panthera and two other conservation groups — WildAid and WildCRU — advocated more protection for lion habitats, measures to stimulate tourism and economic growth

unrelated to hunting, and the supply of alternative sources of protein to local people to reduce demand for wild animal meat. Restrictions on hunting should be tightened as more data emerges on whether trophy hunting of some threatened species is even sustainable, the report said. The number of lions in the wild in Africa has dropped by more than 40 percent to about 20,000 in the past two decades, according to estimates. Lion

populations in West, Central and East Africa have dropped, though some conservation success has been recorded in the southern part of the continent. Cecil, who wore a GPS collar and was being monitored by researchers, was killed in a protracted hunt in which he was, according to authorities, lured out of the wildlife park and initially wounded by an arrow. The death unleashed an extraordinary outpouring of anger at Walter Palmer, the American den-

tist who shot the lion, and other foreigners with means who have traveled to Africa to kill wildlife. The hunting industry countered that it has a conservation role, channeling revenue from hunting back into wildlife areas that would otherwise end up as farms for livestock. “Each (wildlife) population needs its own management plan,” said Stewart Dorrington, who hosts bow and arrow hunters at a wildlife area three hours by car from Johannesburg. He

said in a telephone interview that some anti-hunting activists favor a “blanket statement” about the ills of all hunting across Africa. Dorrington, who does not have lions at his Melorani Safaris hunting operation, said many hunting areas in South Africa are struggling to get foreign clients at the moment. In December, the United States made it harder for American big-game hunters to bring a lion head or hide into the country, announcing that it would protect lions in Africa under the Endangered Species Act. At least 11,000 lions were logged in the trophy hunting trade from 2004 to 2013, according to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, a conservation group. Conservationists are also increasingly concerned about the use of lion bones to replace tiger bones in traditional medicine in parts of Asia, as well as for use in ceremonies in some African countries. Hunter, the Panthera president, said lions are relatively easy to spot in some wildlife parks and leave the impression that their overall population is plentiful. Lions are social, active during the day and accustomed to vehicles, he said. “They’re one of the top drawcards for tourists visiting Africa, in protected areas,” said Hunter, noting the death of Cecil had generated massive awareness about their plight. “I hope that it doesn’t go away.

NASA awaits probe’s patriotic arrival to Jupiter’s orbit After 5-year trip, Juno is set to slip into place around the largest planet, begin unraveling its cosmic secrets BY SHELBY LYON Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

MILWAUKEE • On a clear August day in 2011, NASA

launched a cube perched atop an Atlas V rocket that unfurled into a probe the size of a basketball court, complete with three whirling solar arrays. That probe, named Juno in honor of the Roman god Jupiter’s wife, embarked on the mission to map the mysterious workings of the largest planet in our solar system. The extraordinary five-year journey involved a push through the inner solar system, a slingshot around the sun, a flyby of Earth and ultimately a capture by Jupiter’s gravity. When Juno fires its main engines Monday, the journey will end as it slips into orbit above Jupiter. But the mission to explore what lies beneath the swirling clouds of gas will have just begun. Excitement about the mission has been building in the scientific community — NASA’s website has a countdown — and is just now spreading to the general public. Juno even has its own Twitter account (@NASAJuno) with nearly a quarter-million followers. The Independence Day firing is critical; a reverse thrust generated during the burn will essentially slam on the brakes so that the probe can skim over Jupiter and into a stable orbit. NASA expects to receive confirmation of the start of Juno’s engine burn at 10:18 p.m. St. Louis time and should know whether it worked by 10:53 p.m. On July 4, Paul Borchardt, observatory director at the Milwaukee Astronomical Society in New Berlin, will ea-

gerly awaiting online mission updates for Juno. “This is one of the fastest objects mankind has ever built,” Borchardt said, “and now NASA has to slow it down and bring it into orbit. If they don’t, the mission ends. If they do, then the real science begins.” With its enormous magnetic field, Jupiter creates one of the brightest auroras ever observed despite being composed mostly of ammonia, hydrogen and helium. In some respects, Jupiter and its dozens of circling moons function as almost a miniature solar system. Some astronomers even consider Jupiter a failed star. Juno will be the first spacecraft to complete its orbits over Jupiter’s poles. Here it will escape the brunt of the planet’s intense radiation and provide the first data from the uncharted regions from which the magnetic field emanates. “Juno will go where no spacecraft has gone before — deep into the harshest radiation environment in the solar system outside the sun,” Rick Nybakken, Juno project manager from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, explained during a recent news conference. In an efort to prolong Juno’s survival, NASA housed the probe’s sensitive equipment in a 1½-inch-thick titanium vault that cuts the radiation exposure by 800-fold. Scott Bolton, Juno’s principal investigator, described the incredible eforts to ensure mission success. “Jupiter is the most extreme planet we have, and we are going right next to it. It’s got to do the extreme.” Bob Bonadurer, director of theater and planetarium at the Milwaukee Public Museum, said people don’t realize how important the gas giant is to Earth. “Jupiter protects us from big cosmic collisions by taking hits and flinging things out of our solar system with its gravity. Without it, things would be much more chaotic. We need to understand how that works.” Scientists expect data from Juno to answer key ques-

tions about planetary formation and the origins of our solar system. Because Jupiter has a large mass, it has absorbed countless impacts from asteroids and comets unscathed and has retained the most intact material since the birth of the sun. Each orbit will take 11 days, with Juno tracking diferent paths across Jupiter with its instruments and camera, JunoCam. The first images should be publicly available at the end of August. Once the initial data is collected, NASA will point JunoCam at specific features to get more detailed images. NASA expects the probe to survive Jupiter’s radiation onslaught through October 2017. That’s when the mission will end for Juno, which will be directed to plunge into Jupiter’s cloud tops and burn up like a meteor.

Former Vice President Al Gore’s daughter was among 23 people arrested during a protest of a pipeline under construction in Boston, organizers say. The arrests happened Wednesday at the site of Spectra Energy’s West Roxbury Lateral pipeline. Karenna Gore, 42, was among demonstrators who tried to block construction activity on the site by lying in a trench dug for the pipeline and refusing to move until ireighters removed them, protest group Resist the Pipeline & Stop the West Roxbury Lateral said. The group opposes the pipeline because of safety and climate change concerns. Karenna Gore, who serves as director of the Center for Earth Ethics at the Union Theological Seminary in New York, and others facing resisting arrest charges will be arraigned Friday.

Airport attackers from Russia, Central Asia

Palestinian kills sleeping Israeli girl, Israel says A Palestinian youth jumped over the security fence into a Jewish settlement in the West Bank on Thursday, entered a family home and stabbed to death a 13-yearold Israeli girl as she slept in her bedroom, Israeli oicials said. Security cameras caught the assailant climbing the fence, but oicers arrived at the house in the settlement of Kiryat Araba minutes too late. The girl, identiied as Hallel Yafe Ariel, had already been stabbed several times. She died on her way to a hospital. The Associated Press reported that Hallel was a U.S. citizen. Her attacker, identiied as Mohammad Tra’ayra, 19, from the nearby village of Bani Na’im, was shot dead at the scene, a statement from the Israeli military said. The attack is the latest bloodshed in a wave of violence between Palestinians and Israelis that began nine months ago but had tapered of recently.

Police arrest 13 in series of raids around Istanbul BY DOMINIQUE SOGUEL AND SUZAN FRASER associated Press

ISTANBUL • As the death toll from the Istanbul airport attack rose Thursday to 44, a senior Turkish official said the three suicide bombers who carried it out were from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, and Turkish police raided Istanbul neighborhoods for suspects linked to the Islamic State group. Turkish authorities say all information suggests the Tuesday night attack on Ataturk Airport, one of the world’s busiest, was the work of Islamic State, which boasted this week of having cells in Turkey, among other countries. Police raided 16 locations in three neighborhoods on both the Asian and European sides of the city that sprawls across the Bosporus Strait, rounding up 13 people suspected of having links to Islamic State. There was no immediate claim of responsibility by the militant group, which has used Turkey to establish itself in neighboring Syria and Iraq. Islamic State has repeatedly threatened Turkey in its propaganda, and the NATO member has blamed Islamic State for several major bombings in the past year in both Ankara and Istanbul. Across Istanbul and beyond, funerals were held for the airport victims Thursday. Nilsu Ozmeric wept over the coffin of her fiancé, Jusuf Haznedaroglu, 32, an airport worker who was fatally wounded while waiting for a bus to go home. “The wedding was next week,” sobbed his mother, Cervinye Haznedaroglu, as visitors ofered condolences. A video obtained by the Turkish newspaper Haberturk purported to show a police officer asking one of the suicide bombers for identification before he was subsequently shot by the attacker. The video shows the officer, in short sleeves, approaching a man dressed in black. The man in black then appears to shoot the oicer, who falls to the ground. The Associated Press was not able to independently verify the location of the video or the sequence of events.

First lady promotes education for girls • U.S. irst lady Michelle Obama on Thursday appealed to girls and young women in Spain to get involved in her global girls’ education initiative, saying it’s important that girls are “valued for their minds.” Speaking to hundreds of young women at a conference in Madrid, Mrs. Obama spoke of the diiculties girls faced trying to get an education in many countries. She said she had come to Spain in the hope of inspiring women and girls here to help ight for change. Mrs. Obama arrived in Spain from Morocco on Wednesday. She had started the three-nation tour to promote the “Let Girls Learn” initiative in Liberia. President Barack Obama and the irst lady launched the project last year to address the barriers that keep more than 62 million girls around the world out of school.

Relatives mourn Thursday as they gather around the Turkish lagdraped coin of Habibullah Sefer, one of the people killed Tuesday in the blasts at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport.

A Turkish senior oicial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because government regulations did not authorize him to talk to the media, said the attackers were from Russia and the Central Asian nations of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. A medical team was working around the clock to identify the suicide attackers, the official said, noting their bodies had sufered extensive damage. Kyrgyzstan’s Foreign Ministry denied that an attacker came from that country. Asked about the possible involvement of a Russian in the attacks, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he had no information on that and there was no comment either from Uzbekistan. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said from 5,000 to 7,000 people from Russia and other nations of the former Soviet Union have joined the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq. People from Chechnya and other provinces in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus region have had a visible presence among Islamic State fighters. Turkish state media said the death toll in the attack rose to 44 after a 25-year-old airport worker died of his wounds. Interior Minister Efkan Ala said the dead included 19 foreigners. Officials said 94 of the more than 230 people reported wounded in the attack were still hospitalized. Two memorial services for

victims were held at the airport, one of them honoring taxi drivers slain in the attack. Five funerals were held elsewhere, including for four members of the Amiri family. Abdulmumin Amiri escaped death because he went to look for a taxi while his relatives watched their luggage. “At that time, the bomb went of,” he told The Associated Press. “I was about 4 or 5 meters (13 to 16 feet) away.” At the funeral for Ferhat Akkaya, who had gone to the airport to see of a friend, his wife and three children sobbed as they clutched his coffin in the northern province of Ordu. His relatives railed against Turkish authorities, blaming them for failing to ensure airport security. “Damn it! The state should hear our voices and take the necessary precautions,” said Ferhat Kabakci, the victim’s brother-in-law. Unconfirmed details about the attack flooded Turkish media. The private Dogan news agency said the Russian attacker had entered the country one month ago and left his passport in a house the men had rented in Istanbul’s Fatih neighborhood. The Karar newspaper, quoting police sources, said the attackers were part of a seven-member cell that entered Turkey on May 25. The assailants raised suspicions of airport security on the day of the attack because they wore winter jackets on a summer day, media reported.

Woman, 117, dies after inally getting proof of age • A 117-yearold woman in Mexico City inally received her birth certiicate, and died a few hours later. Trinidad Alvarez Lira had waited years for proof that she had been born in 1898. She hadn’t received all the government old age beneits she was entitled to because she had no proof of her age. The city Department of Social Development said Thursday they had inally granted her birth certiicate earlier this week, but she died of a heart attack on Wednesday. Apparently Alvarez Lira didn’t have time to cash a single check. Queen attends service commemorating Somme • Queen

Elizabeth II attended a service at Westminster Abbey on Thursday, the eve of the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, one of the deadliest chapters of World War I. The 90-year-old British monarch laid a wreath of roses on the grave of the Unknown Warrior inside the ancient abbey in London before a bugler sounded the Last Post, a tribute to the fallen. An honor guard of soldiers and civilians will hold an overnight vigil at the grave, ending just before 7:30 a.m., the time British troops were sent into battle on July 1, 1916. The British and French ofensive against German forces ground on for 141 days in 1916, leaving more than a million dead or wounded. Prince William, his wife, Kate, and Prince Harry attended a vigil Thursday evening at the Thiepval Memorial in northern France, where 70,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers are commemorated. Ex-Argentine president’s property raided • Authorities on Thursday raided several properties owned by former Argentine President Cristina Fernandez as part of an investigation into possible illegal enrichment during her time in oice. Fernandez used her Twitter account to decry the searches of her properties in southern Argentina under a court order, calling the move political persecution by her successor. Separately, a federal court on Thursday ordered that Fernandez be included in an investigation of alleged money laundering by Lazaro Baez, a businessman who was recently arrested. Baez beneited from public works contracts and other projects during the 12 years that Fernandez and her late husband and predecessor as president, Nestor Kirchner, were in power. U.N. body to monitor antigay bias, violence • The U.N.’s top human rights body on Thursday decided to appoint an expert to monitor violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In a 23-18 vote with six abstentions, the Human Rights Council called for the creation of a three-year position for an independent expert to look into wrongdoing against gays, lesbians and transgender people. The expert is expected to be appointed at the next meeting of the 47-member, Geneva-based body in September. The resolution beneited from strong support from Latin America and the West, while many African and Middle Eastern countries joined China voting against it. From news services

• Decision may revive legal logjam for Visa and MasterCard FROM NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK • A federal appeals court on Thursday threw out a $5.7 billion antitrust settlement that Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc. had reached with millions of retailers that accused the card networks of improperly fixing credit and debit card fees. The ruling is a blow to credit card firms that sought to put an end to bitter court battles over fees amounting to tens of billions of dollars annually. The lawsuit, brought on behalf of 12 million merchants nationwide, was filed a decade ago after earlier disputes over the fees. The rejection of the deal raises the prospect that it will have to be renegotiated or the

case may go to trial, potentially renewing years of litigation with millions of U.S. merchants. Dozens of big retailers who opposed the accord cheered the decision, in which the appeals court said provisions barring merchants from suing over fees were unfair. The U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan also said that lawyers who represented retailers nationwide didn’t do enough to protect their interests. “This is not a settlement; it is a confiscation,” U.S. Circuit Judge Pierre Leval said in one of two opinions in the case. The judge said he was particularly troubled by the broad litigation release

Drones to the rescue? Boeing lab explores military, manufacturing uses for robots

Perhaps if Henry Ford had been a visionary like Elon Musk, he would have bought an oil company. After all, the internal combustion engine was useless without a reliable energy source, and every Model T buyer represented a cross-selling opportunity for Ford’s own brand of gasoline. That’s essentially the argument Musk is making for having Tesla, his pioneering electric car company, buy solar energy developer SolarCity. He calls the proposed deal “a no-brainer” in which the “synergies are really just common sense.” See NICKLAUS • Page B2

Boeing employees and visitors to the new Boeing Collaborative Autonomous Systems Laboratory, or CASL, look over an unmanned ground vehicle during a ribbon-cutting for the new 8,100-square-foot facility in St. Charles on Thursday. Both flying and groundlevel unmanned vehicles can be tracked and coordinated to work together through a motion capture system.

Imagine a big refinery fire. Flames are everywhere; it’s far too dangerous for firefighters to approach. A drone flies above. A robot tractor moves below with the job of turning of a fuel valve deep in the complex. Can the drone guide the robot through the tangled mess and to the valve? Solving that sort of thing is the task of a new facility in St. Charles that Boeing workers call “the Castle.” The nickname comes from its real title, the Collaborative Autonomous Systems Laboratory, or CASL. The idea is to develop unmanned vehicles that can communicate with each other as well as humans on the ground. Boeing sees a future for that in civilian life and on the battlefield. Searching for a person missing in the forest, for instance, several drones might have to fly their own search patterns, without hitting each other, using

Tesla isn’t a car company, he says, it’s a renewable energy company. So those folks putting down deposits on a $35,000 Tesla Model 3, which is supposed to go on sale late next year, really want solar panels on their houses, too. Musk touts an opportunity for “effectively doubling or almost doubling the sale at that time.” Investors aren’t buying the nobrainer story. Polite analysts doubt the synergies and worry that the solar business will distract Tesla from the difficult process of reinventing the automobile. Cynical ones assert that the deal looks like a bailout for SolarCity, which has seen its shares tumble 53 percent this year. Tesla’s shares fell 12 percent after the deal came to light on June 21, knocking $3.8 billion off the car company’s market value. That’s significant, because the ofer for SolarCity is just $2.8 billion. The market decided that one plus one equals less than one. Tesla shares have regained some of that lost value, partly reflecting doubts that the deal will go through. This, however, is no ordinary deal. The companies’ boards are riddled Lyndon Rive with conflicts of interest. Musk is chairman of both companies and chief executive of Tesla, and he owns a sizable chunk of both. His cousin Lyndon Rive is CEO of SolarCity. Musk has agreed to abstain from voting on the merger, but both companies’ directors have close business ties to him. Only two of SolarCity’s eight directors were deemed independent enough to serve on a committee that will evaluate the ofer, and one of the two is a venture capitalist who invested in Tesla before it went public. “It is unusual to have separate businesses that are so closely aligned,” says Charles Elson, director of the University of Delaware’s Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance. “Certainly the optics of the deal are tough.” Some analysts note that Musk could do the cross-selling through some sort of joint venture, keeping Tesla’s balance sheet cleaner and avoiding distractions for its managers. Elson says that if Musk wanted to merge the companies, he should have done so before they went public. Hillary Sale, a Washington University law professor who studies corporate governance, said most companies manage the conflict-of-interest problem by having independent committees evaluate a deal. That process is less credible when boards are dominated by insiders. “Most public companies don’t have a lot of friends and family on the board,” Sale said. “Were it not for the fact that Elon Musk has holdings in both companies and maybe some founder’s ego tied up in them, I’m not sure this would be happening.” Ah, but it is happening, unless Tesla shareholders get riled up enough to stop it. They bought into the company because of its visionary leader, but now they need to ask whether he’s leading them to the promised land or into a thorny wilderness.

Having secured South Africa’s approval for the deal, A-B InBev Chief Executive Carlos Brito said it was on track to close the merger in the second half of 2016, adding that South Africa was “a market that would play a critical role in the combined company.” The merger still awaits key approvals by the U.S. and China. Jobless claims rise, but trend is positive • The number of Americans iling for unemployment beneits rose last week, but remained below a level associated with a healthy labor market. Initial claims for state unemployment beneits increased 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 268,000 for the week ended June 25, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Claims for the prior week were revised to show 1,000 fewer applications received than previously reported. Last week’s increase was in line with economists’ expectations. Claims have now been below 300,000, a threshold associated with a strong jobs market, for 69 consecutive weeks, the longest streak since 1973. The four-week moving average of claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, was unchanged at 266,750 last week. From staf and wire reports

Wall Street rallies for a third straight day REUTERS

NEW YORK • Investors remained in a buying mood Thursday, driving U.S. stocks broadly higher for the third day in a row. The latest gains added to the market’s rebound from the brief, but steep slump that followed Britain’s vote to leave the European Union a week ago. While the rally suggests that traders’ anxiety over Britain’s departure from the EU have eased, a surge in U.S. bond prices Thursday signaled many investors remain cautious about the possible long-term implications. As bond prices rose, the yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 1.47 percent. Consumer staple companies posted the biggest gains. Utilities, a traditional haven for investors seeking less risk, were a close second. Oil prices fell. “The equity market has realized that the ‘Brexit’ in a vacuum by itself is not a reason to wholesale abandon equities,” said David Schiegoleit, managing director of investments for the private client reserve at U.S. Bank. “But there is still the fear that it becomes contagious with other economies in Europe.” The Dow Jones industrial average gained 235.31 points, or 1.3 percent, to 17,929.99. The Standard & Poor’s 500

index rose 28.09 points, or 1.4 percent, to 2,098.86. The Nasdaq composite added 63.43 points, or 1.3 percent, to 4,842.67. The stock market closed out the second quarter with modest gains. The S&P 500 index added 1.9 percent in the April-June period. Much of the biggest gains came from energy stocks, which benefited from a rebound in oil prices, utilities and telecom companies, which became more attractive as bond yields declined. The index is up 2.7 percent this year. The Dow, which gained 1.4 percent during the second quarter, is up 2.9 percent this year. The Nasdaq lost 0.6 percent in the second quarter and is down 3.3 percent through the first half of 2016. Trading got off to a tepid start Thursday, but got going into rally mode by midmorning, suggesting a resolve among investors to put their worries about Britain’s eventual EU exit in their rearview mirror. Markets in Europe also extended their rebound from the two-day slump that broke on Tuesday. Britain’s FTSE 100 rose 2.3 percent. The U.K.’s stock market has recouped its losses, though that is largely thanks to a drop in the British currency, which favors earnings for big companies overseas.

Feds tell more than 300,000 Honda, Acura owners: Don’t drive them he vehicles have 50 percent chance of air bag rupture, NHTSA says

Chocolate competitor gets kiss-of in its ofer for Hershey ASSOCIATED PRESS

ASSOCIATED PRESS

An automotive technician works on a Honda car at a service center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Monday. A Malaysian woman has died after the air bag in her Honda Civic ruptured in a minor collision, a safety oicial said Monday.

WASHINGTON POST

Federal regulators on Thursday issued an urgent warning to owners of more than 300,000 Hondas and Acuras, saying they should not drive their vehicles until their Takata air bags are replaced. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said a new round of tests on the Takata air bags installed in some model-year 2001-2003 Hondas and Acuras posed a much higher threat to drivers and passengers than first thought. NHTSA said the air bags needed immediate replacement. In collisions, the faulty Takata

air bags can rupture and spray drivers and passengers with metal shrapnel. “With as high as a 50 percent chance of a dangerous air bag inflator rupture in a crash, these vehicles are unsafe and need to be repaired immediately,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement. “Folks should not drive these vehicles unless they are going straight to a dealer to have them repaired immediately, free of charge.” Takata air bags are installed by almost two dozen automakers and their malfunction has been blamed for 10 deaths and hundreds of injuries. NHTSA

says nearly 70 million Takata air bags are or will be under recall in the U.S. by 2019, making it the largest recall in the nation’s history. The Japanese firm is the world’s largest manufacturer of air bags, and replacements are in such short supply that many U.S. drivers who have received recall notices are being told it will take weeks or months before their vehicles can be repaired. Unlike most air bag makers, Takata uses ammonium nitrate to trigger a small explosion that inflates the air bag when the vehicle strikes something. But in some vehicles — particularly those that were several

years old and kept in regions with high humidity — the ammonium nitrate burns too fast, causing the chemical’s container to explode and spray shrapnel. Vehicles identified in the NHTSA urgent warning are Honda Civic (2001-2002); Honda Accord (2001-2002), Acura TL (2002-2003), Honda CR-V (2002), Honda Odyssey (2002), Acura CL (2003), and Honda Pilot (2003). “Testing of the inflators from these vehicles show rupture rates as high as 50 percent in a laboratory setting,” NHTSA said in a release.

Boeing makes ‘big bet’ on autonomous systems DRONES • FROM B1

cameras and sensors capable of spotting human movement on the ground. At a ribbon-cutting Thursday, Boeing showed of a four-wheel vehicle capable of moving sideways and spinning using a series of slanted rollers on its wheels. A small drone remained a couple of feet above it as the ground machine maneuvered around the floor. The element of autonomy — operating without direct human guidance — will be “a key element of the vast majority of Boeing products going forward,” said Charles Toups, vice president for research and technology.

Boeing is making a “big bet” on autonomous technology, and it’s probably a good one, says Loren Thompson, defense analyst and chief operating officer at the Lexington Institute in Virginia. There is a big future for it in warfare if Boeing can get autonomous aircraft and ground vehicles coordinated. “There will be some battles where there are no human casualties, because there are no humans involved,” he said. Computer coordination will allow battles at a pace faster than human operators could deal with, he said. Boeing is also developing an unmanned submarine that can be used to fix underwater pipe-

lines and cables, and has military applications, too. It can stay at sea for months. Autonomous technology may have a place in manufacturing as well as the plane, missile, bomb and space business where Boeing normally operates. Nancy Pendleton, director of system technology, pointed to a small wheeled vehicle with a robot arm. Such devices might move themselves around a factory floor, doing jobs now done by humans. The 8,100-square-foot CASL looks a little like a high school gym on the inside, with a big bay lit with infrared lights used to track the movement of the drones flying and rolling below. A tentlike annex provides the

drones access to global positioning and other guidance systems that can’t be had indoors. A projection system simulates terrain for the drones’ detection systems. The lab is on the Boeing complex where missiles and smart bomb kits are made. That plant will add a second shift next week to keep up with orders, said Elizabeth Kluba, vice president for weapons and missile systems. Boeing employs about 15,000 people in the metro area, mainly in north St. Louis County and St. Charles. Boeing doesn’t release a St. Charles-only employment number.

NEW YORK • Hershey says its board has unanimously rejected a takeover ofer from Oreo maker Mondelez and that the ofer provided “no basis for further discussion.” The chocolate maker confirmed that it received the preliminary offer from Mondelez International to be taken over for a mix of cash and stock totaling $107 for each share of Hershey common stock. That would value the deal at roughly $22.3 billion, according to FactSet. The Wall Street Journal, citing sources it did not name, reported earlier in the day that Mondelez recently sent Hershey a letter proposing the deal. Mondelez International Inc. said it would take on Hershey’s name and move its global headquarters to Hershey, Pa., according to the Journal. The paper noted the deal would be subject to the approval of the Hershey Trust. The trust owns 8.3 percent of Hershey’s shares, according to FactSet. A spokeswoman for Mondelez, Valerie Moens, had said earlier that the company does not comment on “market rumors or speculation.” Moens did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Hershey’s rejection of the ofer. In addition to Oreos, Mondelez International Inc., based in Deerfield, Ill., owns Cadbury chocolates, Trident gum, Nabisco cookies and Ritz crackers. The company split from Kraft in 2012, taking with it brands that were seen as having greater international potential. The acquisition of Hershey would have given the combined company 18 percent of the global candy market and made it the industry’s largest player, according to Euromonitor International. Mars Inc., which makes M&M’s and Snickers, is currently No. 1 with 13.5 percent of the market. In a note to investors, J.P. Morgan analyst Ken Goldman said that at least part of Mondelez’s rationale for making the bid was probably “defensive in nature,” as the company did not want to be acquired by The Kraft Heinz Co., if Kraft was even interested. A tie-up between Mondelez and Hershey would have marked just the latest chapter in a series of deals in the packaged food industry, with companies looking for ways to improve their financial results while up against struggling sales growth in major markets such as the U.S. When Heinz announced plans to buy Kraft last year, for instance, executives cited the cost savings that would be achieved by combining manufacturing and distribution networks.

Company producing wine dispenser DISPENSER • FROM B1

But Young did think he could build a company. In addition to being good with figures, he had gained leadership skills as a high school and college athlete and most importantly, he had a true love for the retail side of business. So he got together a group of likeminded friends, who considered themselves promising business operators. However, their only experience with beer and wine was drinking it. “We named the company Synek, a play on cynic, because no one thought we could do it,” he said. “We are successful because we don’t have a great deal of experience in beer or wine. But we are good businessmen.” Synek has 13 employees, working from both St. Louis and Denver to develop, finance and market its dispensers, which were designed by Objex Design in Maplewood. “It’s like Mark Zuckerberg,” Young said. “I’m not comparing myself to Zuckerberg, but he’s antisocial and he created a social network.” And indeed, Synek’s first project, a craft beer dispenser, is doing well. It was funded through a 2014 Kickstarter campaign, which raised an impressive $648,535 from 2,200 backers when the crowdfunding campaign closed in July of that year. Young said the company has sold about 5,000 dispensers and that they have been a particular hit in sports stadium suites. “We’re rolling it out in 20 stadiums with five up and running now,” Young said. Among stadiums using the dispenser is PNC Park, home to the Pittsburgh Pirates. With the success of the beer dispenser, Young and his team turned their sights on developing a wine dispenser system that uses a smartphone app that learns owners’ taste preferences — much like Netflix — and provides suggestions about which

wines they might enjoy. Synek launched its Kickstarter campaign for the wine dispenser, called Somm (short for sommelier), on April 7 and reached its $100,000 Kickstarter goal in the first 15 hours of the 30-day pre-order campaign. Most investors paid $199 to get the dispenser by the end of this year. “Those people can expect to have a gift under the tree,” Young said. As of now, oenophiles have invested a total of about $250,000 to get the system, which has just gone into production. Somm can be reserved through an online order for $224 with shipment expected in January. The retail price will eventually go up to $299 per unit. Somm is made up of a 9-by-13-by-13inch dispenser that uses interchangeable airtight cylinders that can hold as much as three standard bottles of wine. Called Sylos, the cylinders have a cardboard-like shell that houses a flexible membrane, a plastic bag that holds the wine. Every Sylo contains a computer chip that allows Somm to adjust to the right temperature for each particular wine. When the wine reaches the right temperature, a pump pulls the wine out of the bladder and aerates it prior to dispensing. The process is aimed at preventing oxidization by stopping air from contacting the wine. In addition to the technology employed within the dispenser, the system connects with each owner’s smartphone, allowing the user to rate the wine, receive related content, and order new products. The owners’ responses are entered into an algorithm that allows Synek’s in-house wine experts to make personalized recommendations about future purchases. In April, Synek announced a partnership with Just Wine, a mobile app for discovering and rating wines. Synek is also partnering with The Wine Tasting Network, a large direct-to-door wine supplier

‘Swipe fees’ have been in dispute for decades CREDIT • FROM B1

that “binds in perpetuity, without opportunity to reject the settlement, all merchants who in the future will accept Visa and MasterCard, including those not yet in existence.” “We are disappointed by today’s ruling,” Seth Eisen, a spokesman for MasterCard, said in an emailed statement. “We believe we presented a clear case to the court that the settlement was fair and appropriate based on more than four years of negotiation and the close involvement of the district court. We are reviewing the decision to determine our next steps.” Connie Kim, a spokeswoman for Visa, declined to comment. Large retailers including Wal-Mart Stores, Amazon.com and Target, as well as major airlines, health insurers and other consumer businesses, had criticized the deal. On Thursday, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, a trade group that represents more than 200 merchants, praised the ruling, saying the settlement would have denied retailers the ability to bring lawsuits over interchange rules and rate setting. The group had formally opted out and objected to the deal two years ago. “Today’s decision is a victory for all merchants and consumers,” Deborah White, the group’s executive vice president, said in a statement. “The settlement orchestrated by the card networks and banks would have undermined merchants’ legal rights forever and would have allowed Visa and MasterCard to impose higher and higher swipe fees.” U.S. District Judge John Gleeson in Brooklyn, N.Y., approved the accord on Dec. 13, 2013, saying he was

satisfied with the settlement, which was estimated to be the largest-ever U.S. antitrust deal. Gleeson stepped down from the bench earlier this year. Once owned by groups of major banks, Visa and MasterCard had defended themselves for decades against legal claims that they operated price-fixing schemes. Swipe, or interchange, fees are set by card companies and paid by merchants when consumers use credit or debit cards. The settlement, announced in July 2012, had called for retailers that accepted Visa or MasterCard from January 2004 to November 2012 to share in as much as $7.25 billion. After about 8,000 merchants dropped out of the damages portion of the lawsuit, the value of the settlement dropped to about $5.7 billion. Retailers that accepted the cards from then on, meanwhile, were to get injunctive relief in the form of rule changes. Writing for the appeals court, Circuit Judge Dennis Jacobs said the divergent interests of these groups meant they should not have been represented by the same law firms, which were awarded $544.8 million in fees. While making clear he did not question the firms’ motives, Jacobs said the conflict sapped their incentive to zealously represent the retailers obtaining injunctive relief, and led to terms that benefited other retailers at their expense. The case will return to the Brooklyn federal court. It is now overseen there by U.S. District Judge Margo Brodie. Reuters and Bloomberg contributed to this report.

with hundreds of thousands of members in its community. “People are used to draft beer but wine dispensed like this is new. Wine is harder to navigate than beer,” Young said. “But the Somm app has an algorithm that walks you through each step …. It’s the promise of wine personalized with your palate.” Young is hoping that Somm will capture the attention of tech-loving millennials, 21 to 34 years old, who have already changed the beer industry with their demand for craft and other new and interesting brews, ciders, and even innovative packaging. Not only do millennials like interesting beer, but they are fans of wine — all diferent kinds of wine. “Millennials like to experiment,” said Marina Velez, senior product manager for the Beverage Information Group based in Norwalk, Conn. “They are more eager to try wines from all over the world and have an interest in the obscure.” That’s important to Young and the entire wine industry because statistics show there are now more millennial wine drinkers in the U.S. than among baby boomers. Velez said data show that 36 percent of millennials are wine drinkers, compared to 34 percent of baby boomers. And while baby boomers consume more wine than millennials, the gap between these two groups is not great and is closing rapidly, she said. In addition to their growing consumption, millennials are influenced by diferent factors than older generations when they buy wine. “Millennials rely heavily on social media … and what’s trending. That influences most of their buying decisions,” Velez said. “Word of mouth, bloggers and hashtags are influential touchpoints to gather ideas and recommendations.” Along those same lines, they are more likely to buy wine directly through an app when it’s recommended by someone they

know “even if they only know these people via their social networks,” she said. Unlike prior generations, however, they are not as impressed by scores from wine critics, she added. “They like some kind of review, but won’t be convinced into buying an expensive wine just because a critic awarded it 92 points,” Velez said. “They like choosing wines based of the ‘story’ and/or a personal connection.” Another difference between the generations is that millennials, particularly younger ones, are more open to nontraditional packaging, such as premium boxed wine, she said. While these findings don’t spell the end of the traditional wine bottle or the shops that sell them, they are good news for Young and the Somm, particularly with the app that personalizes recommendations, provides educational content and allows users to order a variety of wines. Indeed, Young thinks that Somm could help revolutionize the way consumers buy and serve wine. “We’re riding the tidal wave,” he said. “This is ideal.”

With new backing, changes, Clean Line tries anew for energy project approval PSC rejected earlier version of wind farm proposal BY BRYCE GRAY St. Louis Post-dispatch

Buoyed by recent high-profile endorsements from the public and private sector, Clean Line Energy, developers of the Grain Belt Express transmission line from Kansas wind farms, submitted a new application for the project’s approval on Thursday. The fate of the project now rests in the hands of the Missouri Public Service Commission, which scuttled the project’s original application last year amid concerns from farmers and other landowners in the project’s path. The renewable energy transmission project would bring power 780 miles from wind farms in western Kansas to Illinois and Indiana, with some electricity then being sent through the grid to metropolitan centers farther east. While about 85 percent of its electricity is destined for other states, the project would power about 200,000 Missouri households. Of the four states that the project’s overhead transmission lines would pass through, only Missouri has yet to approve the project. Kansas, Illinois and Indiana have already done so. Missouri-based support for the project is gaining momentum. The transmission line secured an endorsement from Gov. Jay Nixon on

Wednesday, and has also garnered support from a number of municipalities and businesses within the state. In his statement, Nixon touted the jobs that the project’s construction would provide and the “enhanced landowner protections” that have been put in place. Prominent members of the business community, meanwhile, have expressed interest in the improved access to cost-competitive, renewable energy that the project would provide. A press release announcing Grain Belt Express’ new application filing listed General Motors, Procter & Gamble and Nestle among influential employers backing the project, as well as the Missouri Industrial Energy Consumers association. But hurdles still exist for the project to come to fruition. The PSC first needs to agree to review the new application, and will then need to determine that sufficient safeguards are in place to reverse its 3-2 decision issued in 2015. The Farm Bureau remains a vocal opponent of the project, releasing a statement Wednesday that was sharply critical of Nixon’s endorsement. “We feel Governor Nixon needs to let the Public Service Commissioners he appointed do their jobs free from political pressure,” spokesperson Jennifer Gatrel

said. In the statement, Gatrel expressed lingering concerns about the impact the project could have on farmers and ranchers and their property rights. Some are optimistic, however, that Clean Line Energy has been diligent about addressing concerns from landowners and other stakeholders and that the project merits a second look from the commission. Clean Line has made arrangements for an on-theground agricultural inspector to help supervise construction and minimize its impact to local farms. The company has also committed a sum of $32 million to afected landowners. “I hope that the PSC will hear Clean Line again considering the changes they’ve made,” said Josh Campbell, executive director of the Missouri Energy Initiative, a nonpartisan organization based in Jeferson City. (Mark Lawlor, the director of development for Clean Line Energy, is a board member for the organization.) “I think the vast majority of elected officials support Clean Line,” Campbell added. “I think Clean Line has gone out of its way to address the concerns of that vocal minority.” Bryce Gray • 314-340-8307 @_BryceGray on Twitter bgray@post-dispatch.com

Chinese takeover of U.S. ham king proves uneventful As spending, workforce grow, employees have no beefs, but American oicials stay wary BY ANDREW MAYEDA AND ENDA CURRAN Bloomberg

When Chinese suitors took over the pork producer in Smithfield, Va., it sent tremors through the tiny town that calls itself the Ham Capital of the World. Three years later, residents and union leaders who represent workers at Smithfield Foods Inc. say the initial fears about the buyer from a Communist-ruled nation proved unfounded. The happy marriage so far belies the rhetoric on the U.S. presidential campaign trail that depicts China as an untrustworthy business partner, and serves as an example of Chinese investment that can benefit both countries. At the time, the $4.7 billion acquisition of Smithfield Foods in 2013 by Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. marked the biggest purchase of an American firm by a Chinese company. It was also controversial. U.S. senators expressed concern the deal would jeopardize the security of America’s food supply, and residents of the town of 8,300 people worried Shuanghui would cut jobs or move the company from Smithfield, where it was founded in 1936. Instead, the U.S. workforce under the Chinese owners now known as WH Group Ltd. has expanded by more than 1,000 people, to almost 39,000, and rather than cutting back investment, capital spending by the Chinese-owned unit has climbed — rising 24 percent last year, to $313 million. “This is a very conservative American community and people were aghast that the Chinese had bought their company,” said John Edwards, the editor and publisher of the Smithfield Times, a local newspaper. “That’s pretty much gone away.” The pattern in Smithfield ofers something of a parallel with Japanese investment decades ago that initially stoked opposition before becoming accepted — a theme captured in the 1980s Michael Keaton-Ron Howard movie “Gung Ho.” From hotels to movie studios, it’s now Chinese companies that are snapping up assets in the U.S. at a record pace. This year, Chinese firms are on track to spend $50.8 billion on U.S. acquisitions, according to data compiled by Bloomberg spanning completed, proposed or pending deals. That compares with the $34.8 billion total last year. The investments add a new layer of potential tensions to a bilateral economic relationship characterized by the world’s largest trade imbalance, with China exporting more than $365 billion worth of goods to the U.S. in excess of what it bought in American imports, according to

world’s largest. The administration of President Barack Obama has blocked some purchases of U.S.-based assets. Europeans have shared U.S. sentiment that China doesn’t offer the same access for investment in its home market. Foreign investment between China and the U.S. remains largely a one-way street, said David Dollar, a senior follow at the Brookings Institution and the U.S. Treasury’s former economic emissary to China. “China itself remains quite closed to inward investment. They’ve opened some manufacturing sectors, but they’re very closed in a lot of sectors that are important to the U.S.,” Dollar said in an interview. “The next president will have to take a hard look at this.” At the same time, Chinese firms are generating some jobs in the U.S., adding about 13,000 employees to their payrolls in 2015, up 12 percent from 2014, according to a Report by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Rhodium. About 90,000 Americans are now employed by Chinese-ailiated U.S. companies, a threefold increase in three years. Before the Chinese acquisition, investors expressed disappointment in Smithfield’s stock performance, which trailed competitors such as Hormel Foods Corp. and Tyson Foods Inc. One shareholder, Continental Grain Co., suggested that the company’s packaged meats, international operations and livestock businesses be broken up. Wary of the impact on workers, the union supported the Chinese takeover, and oicials say collective bargaining negotiations have gone smoothly since. “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss,” said Mark Lauritsen, director of packing and processing at the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union in Washington, who has worked on Smithfield labor talks in the past. “As far as the worker on the shop floor goes, there’s been no change at all.”

U.S. government data. Those Chinese-made goods help fill Walmart stores and Amazon.com’s website with inexpensive products for American households that have seen scant income gains. Yet the imbalance also reflects competitive pressures that have fueled charges about unfair competition — now heard loudest on the campaign trail. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said in May “we can’t continue to allow China to rape our country.” His Democratic rival, and current frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, has said the next president “has to understand the games Beijing plays and be prepared to stop it.” Mirroring what happened with Japan, China is now drawing attention for its investments, which have included Anbang Insurance Group Co.’s $1.95 billion purchase of the iconic Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. China’s Commerce Ministry anticipates that outbound investment will exceed that of foreign direct investment this year. Chinese-affiliated companies can be found in more than three-quarters of U.S. congressional districts, according to the Rhodium Group, a New York economic-

research firm that specializes in China. Major multibillion-dollar projects are dotted around the country, including Yuhuang Chemical’s $1.85 billion methanol plant in Louisiana and Tranlin Paper’s $2 billion facility in Virginia. Because deals by Chinese companies can often involve state-owned enterprises, they can raise concerns on everything from intellectual-property protection to national security. Before the Smithfield acquisition, opponents of the deal raised espionage concerns, noting that Smithfield, Va., is in a militaryintensive region — not far from the U.S. Navy base in Norfolk that bills itself as the

DIGEST Jets’ Richardson suspended for one game New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson has been suspended by the NFL for the first game of the 2016 regular season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Richardson, a former star at Gateway Tech and Mizzou, will be eligible to return to the Jets’ active roster on Sept. 12 following the team’s Sept. 11 opener against Cincinnati. But he can participate in all preseason practices and games. He pleaded guilty in January to resisting arrest after police clocked him driving at speeds as high as 143 mph in O’Fallon, Mo., last July. A St. Charles County judge sentenced Richardson to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service after he drove a 2014 Bentley Silver Spur at high speeds near his ofseason home. Richardson was accompanied by a 12-year-old relative and two male passengers when he was stopped. Police say they found a loaded semiautomatic handgun under a floor mat and detected a strong marijuana odor. He was not charged for the gun possession or marijuana, nor were his passengers charged. Richardson was suspended for the first four games last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He was the 2013 AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. NFL suspends Manziel four games • Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first four games of next season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, and the free agent quarterback could face further discipline over his domestic violence case if he signs with another team. The suspension announced Thursday is not related to the league’s domestic violence policy, but Manziel, 23, would be subject to standards that were toughened two years ago if he signs with another team. Manziel, released by Cleveland in March, faces a misdemeanor assault charge in Dallas involving former girlfriend Colleen Crowley. The 2012 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Texas A&M was suspended the same week he posted pictures on Instagram from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The post included a reference to his father, Paul Manziel, who called his son a “druggie” following a report from The Associated Press of one of his attorneys mistakenly sending a text that indicated doubts whether Manziel could stay clean. Two Cowboys are suspended • Dallas linebacker Rolando McClain has been suspended for the first 10 games this season for again violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will get a four-game ban for his first violation. McClain was suspended the first four games last year. He signed a second straight one-year deal with the Cowboys, who helped him resurrect a career that flamed out early in Oakland. The longer suspension for McClain is dictated by rules in the NFL’s labor agreement based on McClain’s previous violations. Hamlin says he didn’t aid Stewart’s win • Denny Hamlin reiterated Thursday that he made a mistake on the final lap Sunday and did not let Tony Stewart win the Sprint Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway, ESPN.com reported. Stewart led going into the final lap, and Hamlin passed him when Stewart made a mistake in Turn 7. As they raced to the final turn, Hamlin had a lead of about three car lengths but overshot the corner, swinging wide and opening the door for Stewart to pass him on the inside. The two banged doors, but Stewart easily made the pass and won, snapping an 84-race winless streak in his final season. Some fans vented on social media that Hamlin let Stewart win. “I didn’t let Tony win,” Hamlin said Thursday at Daytona. “I made a mistake. I didn’t execute very good. ... He had an opportunity, he took it. If I’m in his situation, I’d probably do it the same. My biggest mistake, I feel like, is not recognizing the gap that I had behind me.’’ From news services

Rams owner Stan Kroenke contended that St. Louis couldn’t support his NFL team, drawing much ire locally after he blasted the city’s viability as a National Football League locale. But now that they’re gone, multiple NFL teams have been jockeying to make inroads into the supposed lousy market. No, there isn’t a club talking about moving here. And there won’t be any games played in town this season. But the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs are set to televise their exhibition games in the market this summer. And the Chiefs plan to make a big push to build a local fan base. With the city now a vacant NFL market, those clubs — and others — have been vying to get their practice contests on St. Louis television, and the NFL has done some adjusting to clear the way for some such telecasts. Chiefs president Mark Donovan told the Kansas City Star last spring that league rules required a team wanting to add St. Louis to its TV network would have to drop those telecasts from cities of comparable population. That would include places “we’ve been in for years and years and years, so we’re not going to do that,” he told the Star then. “So that makes St. Louis an outlier. If you’re Indianapolis, if you’re Chicago, Tennessee, they have the same issue. Who goes in there?” But since then the league has relaxed that rule, at least for one year, so St. Louis has become fertile test territory for some NFL clubs despite what Kroenke has said. In fact, there has been a bit of a free-for-all of teams trying to find a place on the local airwaves. Donovan is on vacation this week and unavailable for comment. But he discussed the team’s interest in St. Louis in a story posted recently on the club’s website, chiefs.com. “A couple of teams, including us, have lobbied the league and said (that) we’re going to put our preseason games (on TV) in St. Louis because it makes sense,” he said in that report. “We have fans there and we’re going to get in front of them now and develop that relationship.” The Chiefs’ telecasts will be on KMOV (Channel 4). And there is a lightning-rod game on the schedule — the Chiefs play the Rams on Aug. 20 in Los Angeles. “Should be interesting,” KMOV general manager Mike Murphy said. In fact, the team that jilted St. Louis will be on TV here for its first two practice games — ESPN shows its opener nationally, on Aug. 13 vs. Dallas.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rams owner Stan Kroenke ripped St. Louis, but other NFL teams find the market appealing. The Kansas City Chiefs plan to court fans here.

KC also faces Seattle, Chicago and Green Bay this summer. Meanwhile, the Bears’ exhibitions will be on KTVI (Channel 2), which showed the Rams’ practice games the last 11 seasons. “There were a number of teams that we could have worked it out with, but it was well worth the opportunity with the Bears,” said Spencer Koch, who runs KTVI and KPLR (Channel 11). Koch added that he also spoke to, or was contacted by, the Tennessee Titans, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts about showing their games. He said he considered putting one of those teams on Channel 11, in addition to the Bears on Channel 2, but decided against that. “We wanted to try it out first with this one set of (Chicago) games and see how that works,” he said. “I want to try to do things in moderation, not go overboard.” He said a big reason he picked the Bears is because they are an NFC team (KTVI is an ailiate of the Fox network, which primarily shows National Football Conference games during the regular season). Of the three other teams under consideration, only the Packers are in the NFC. “My conversations were pretty much with the Bears,” he said. “I wanted to get it nailed down, and they were the most willing to do it. It makes sense, it’s all about the viewers. The Bears have a hell of a schedule.” Chicago’s summer slate begins Aug. 11, against Denver. It also has matchups with New England and Cleveland as well as the aforementioned contest against Kansas City, on Aug. 27 — which also will be carried on KMOV. KSDK (Channel 5) doesn’t have space for a team’s schedule this summer because, as an NBC ailiate, it will be loaded with Olympics coverage for much of August. The other primary logical station in town to carry a team’s exhibitions is KDNL (Channel 30). And Tom Tipton, its general manager, said he had inquiries from teams but decided not to pursue them.

Once the regular season starts, the Rams’ exit will lead to more NFL games being shown locally than in the last couple decades. On Sundays when the local team is at home, the league usually prohibits the network televising that game from airing a second contest in that market. Because Fox and CBS generally alternate doubleheader weeks, that amounted to a significant number of afternoons when only two games aired locally — one on each network — instead of three. We’ll have more in this space in several weeks about how KTVI plans to retool is schedule without the Rams.

CHIEF TARGET: ST. LOUIS Donovan, the Chiefs’ president, was respectful about discarded Rams fans in his comments relayed by BJ Kissel on chiefs.com. “What we knew and respected was the process that town was going through. What their fans went through was tough, painful. When you move a football franchise, that’s ripping a big part of the town out of that town.” The Chiefs targeted the St. Louis area the last time it lost an NFL team, when the Cardinals left for Arizona after the 1987 season, and plan to do so again. “We said publicly (when the Rams left) that we’re going to be respectful, we’re going to be patient, and that we are going to enter the St. Louis market but we’re going to do it at the right time,” Donovan told chiefs.com. “I think what you’re going to see over the next four or five years is a real resurgence of the Chiefs brand in St. Louis. “We do have some advantages over the other NFL franchises, not only in geography, but because it’s in the state of Missouri we’re the only team that can actually market our corporate partnerships as well as our brand in St. Louis. So that’s a big advantage. “Again, we’ll do it respectfully, we’ll do it patiently and we’ll do it strategically.” Dan Caesar • 314-340-8175 dcaesar@post-dispatch.com

TOP RUNG St. Louis performed poorly for TV viewership of the recent NBA Finals, finishing 54th among the nation’s top 56 markets. But the results were quite different for last weekend’s U.S. gymnastics championships, as St. Louis led the national rankings for NBC’s telecasts of the three nights of the event. The gymnastics rating was helped considerably by the competition being in town, thus drawing a lot of attention — especially from the station that aired it locally, KSDK. Channel 5 devoted much time inside and outside of newscasts promoting the event. Nielsen says 5.6 percent of homes with a TV in the market tuned in, on average, to the three nights of coverage. Fort Myers/ Naples, Fla., was next (4.8) and Indianapolis was third (4.3). But while St. Louis led the nation, that must be put in perspective — more people watched basketball in St. Louis than gymnastics as St. Louis had a 7.6 tune-in average for the NBA Finals. The rankings are relative.

Coastal Carolina relishes irst national championship Chanticleers thwart late Arizona rally

BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Bieser COLUMBIA, MO. • The day before he

officially became Southeast Missouri State’s athletics director in 2012, Mark Alnutt was stuck in St. Louis without a car and needed a ride to Cape Girardeau. SEMO baseball assistant coach Steve Bieser happened to be in the area on a recruiting trip. He happily picked up his new boss for the 90-mile drive down Highway 55. They talked the whole drive. “From that moment I knew this guy is good. Very good,” Alnutt said. Now Mizzou believes the same. After a four-year run as SEMO’s head coach, Bieser is MU’s choice to succeed longtime head coach Tim Jamieson, the school announced Thursday. Bieser, 48, will be formally introduced at a news conference Friday morning at MU’s Taylor Stadium. Bieser has gone 138-97 in four seasons at SEMO, and this year, the Ste. Genevieve, Mo., native guided SEMO to its first NCAA regional appearance in 14 seasons. He’s the first coach in the Ohio Valley Conference to capture three consecutive regular-season league titles. Before coming to SEMO as an assistant, Bieser coached Vianney to MSHSAA championships in 2004 and 2006. Bieser replaces Jamieson, who announced his resignation June 11 after 22 seasons as head coach at Mizzou. Bieser’s SEMO teams were 3-2 against Mizzou the last three seasons. “Steve Bieser is a rising star in the college baseball ranks and a proven winner,” Mizzou athletics director Mack Rhoades said in a statement. “He has an impressive track-record of success, winning championships at each stop in his coaching career. ... He is a relationshipbuilder and will be a great fit for Mizzou.” A few months after hitching a ride with Bieser, Alnutt had a decision to make when SEMO head coach Mark Hogan retired. Alnutt, who came to SEMO from Mizzou where he was an assistant AD, planned to hold a nationwide search to find Hogan’s successor. But while he observed Bieser handle the interim headcoaching role he knew he had his man. “The way he ran the program, from recruiting to academics, community service, budgets, I decided to promote the guy full-time,” said Alnutt, now the deputy AD at Memphis. “He’s one of those guys when you talk about character and integrity, he fits that. The great

thing about him, the ties he had around the state were phenomenal.” When Alnutt and Bieser worked together at SEMO, the school’s baseball team ranked around ninth among the OVC’s 11 programs when it came to facilities and operating budgets, Alnutt said. Still, Bieser made the most out of meager resources and won the league’s regularseason title each of the last three years. Alnutt believes that experience will help Bieser at Mizzou, a program that struggles to compete financially with its peers in the Southeastern Conference. “I’m not comparing the OVC to the SEC, but he’s been in the position where he didn’t have the resources his competitors had and was still successful,” Alnutt said. Mizzou also considered Houston coach Todd Whitting; Arkansas assistant coach Tony Vitello, a former Mizzou player and assistant; and Oklahoma State pitching coach Rob Walton, multiple sources said. After his college playing career at SEMO, Bieser was a 32nd-round draft pick by the Phillies in 1989. He played 13 years of professional baseball and hit .250 in 60 career major-league games with the Mets and Pirates. In seven seasons at Vianney, he posted a record of 137-51. “When I started my coaching career, I had always dreamed of the opportunity to lead this program,” Bieser said. “There is a strong tradition and rich history of Missouri Tiger baseball. I understand the responsibility and I am fully committed and ready to continue building the tradition. As life-long Missourians, my family and I feel truly blessed to be part of the University of Missouri and the Columbia community.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

Coastal Carolina’s G.K. Young (37) is hugged by Anthony Marks after hitting a two-run homer in the sixth in a 4-3 clinching win over Arizona in the College World Series.

OMAHA, NEB. • Coastal Carolina coach Gary Gilmore often said he just wanted his team to reach the College World Series. Until this week, he never imagined the Chanticleers would do so much more. They’re heading back to Conway, S.C., with the school’s first national championship in any sport. Coastal Carolina capitalized on two errors on the same play for four unearned runs in the sixth inning, and the Chanticleers defeated Arizona 4-3 in the deciding Game 3 of the College World Series finals on Thursday. Coastal Carolina (55-18) became the first team since Minnesota in 1956 to win the title in its first CWS appearance. Arizona (49-24) was trying for its second national title since 2012. “We’re not the most talented team in America. We’re just the national champion,” Gilmore said. “That’s all that matters.” Andrew Beckwith (15-1), the national leader in wins, went 52/3 innings after pitching two complete games and picked up his third victory of the CWS. He was named the Most Outstanding Player. “He’s been coaching for 21 years, and he deserves every bit of it,” Beckwith said of Gilmore. “We got him to Omaha and we got him a national championship. The senior class, the hard work in the fall, the dedication of the guys who don’t play much. It doesn’t go unnoticed. It was a full team efort the whole College World Series, and we got it done.” Alex Cunningham earned his first save, striking out Ryan Haug with a full-count fastball to end the game after Arizona had pulled within one in the bottom of the ninth. When Haug swung and missed, Cunningham turned to his dugout, beat his chest with his fist three times and saluted before flipping his glove away to start the celebration. “The last three innings, all I’ve been doing in the dugout is folding my hands and praying to God that this is His will,” Gilmore said. “I know my dad’s up there. I lost him two years ago, and I wanted him so bad to be here with me. I know he’s watching over me right now.” Arizona’s Bobby Dalbec (11-6) also worked 52/3 innings, with all the runs coming against him. He struck out eight to increase his CWS total to 25 in 20 innings. The championship also was the first in a team sport in the 33-year history of

the Big South Conference. The Big South could savor the accomplishment for only about eight hours. The Chanticleers become members of the Sun Belt Conference on Friday. “This program has been a lot better than people give it credit for,” Gilmore said. “They thought we played in a small conference and couldn’t get this done. This bunch wanted to prove everybody wrong.” Arizona saw second baseman Cody Ramer commit two errors on the same play in the sixth inning. Ramer couldn’t get a handle on Zach Remillard’s grounder, allowing David Parrett to score from third. Then Ramer tried to get Michael Paez running from second to third, but he overthrew Kyle Lewis. That allowed Paez to come home. G.K. Young then launched a no-doubt homer into the seats above the right-field bullpen for a 4-0 lead. All four runs in the sixth were unearned, and Dalbec was relieved by Cameron Ming after facing one more batter. Before the sixth inning, Ramer hadn’t committed an error in 17 games. The Wildcats cut the lead in half with two unearned runs in the bottom half of the sixth against a tiring Beckwith. An error on first baseman Kevin Woodall Jr. and a walk loaded the bases before Jared Oliva’s two-RBI single knocked out Beckwith. Bobby Holmes relieved and struck out No. 9 batter Louis Boyd to end the inning. Coastal Carolina caught a break in the third inning after Ramer sent a liner into right field that got under Connor Owings’ glove and rolled to the wall. Ramer made it to third on the two-base error. Zach Gibbons then hit a comebacker to Beckwith, who went home as Ramer tried to score. After catching Beckwith’s wide throw, catcher Parrett reached back to put the tag on Ramer, who was called out on an extremely close play. Arizona’s first two batters in the bottom of the ninth reached base against Cunningham, and Gibbons’ sacrifice fly made it a one-run game with two outs. Ryan Aguilar then doubled into the left-field corner, but Ramer was held at third because Anthony Marks was able to get the ball back to the infield so quickly. “That’s the play of the season in college baseball,” Arizona coach Jay Johnson said. “We play aggressively, but Cody would have been out by 100 feet — and I know it’s only 90 feet. I can’t believe the play that was made.”

MLB NOTEBOOK Dodgers get Norris, disable Kershaw The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran pitcher Bud Norris from the Atlanta Braves. The move Thursday came on the same day the Dodgers said ace Clayton Kershaw will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back injury that will not require surgery. He received an epidural on Wednesday in Los Angeles. In the deal, the Dodgers also received minor league outielder Dian Toscano, a player to be named and cash considerations from Atlanta for minor league pitchers Philip Pfeifer and Caleb Dirks. Over his last ive starts, Norris is 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA, 29 strikeouts and eight walks over 29 1/3 innings. Kershaw, the three-time NL Cy Young winner, is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA this season. He lost his last start on Sunday night in Pittsburgh, giving up four runs and nine hits in six innings. Marlins trade for Rodney • The Miami Marlins acquired closer Fernando Rodney from San Diego to bolster their bullpen for the NL wild-card chase. Manager Don Mattingly has yet to express a lack of faith in A.J. Ramos, who has converted 33 saves opportunities since last season, so Rodney likely will serve as a setup man. Miami traded minor league pitcher Chris

Carlos Carrasco struck out a season-high 14, Jason Kipnis and Rajai Davis hit solo home runs and the Cleveland Indians matched a franchise record by winning their 13th consecutive game Thursday night, beating the host Toronto Blue Jays 4-1. Cleveland’s streak is the longest by any team this season, and the longest for the Indians since winning 13 straight in 1951. Cleveland also won 13 in a row in 1942. Indians starting pitchers are 10-0 during the streak, and Cleveland has outscored its opponents 80-26. Carrasco (4-2) allowed one run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings. Tigers 10, Rays 7 • Cameron Maybin capped a dramatic eight-run ninth with a tiebreaking threerun double, and visiting Detroit overcame a ive-run deicit to beat Tampa Bay. Detroit trailed 7-2 entering the ninth and opened the inning with four consecutive hits of Ryan Garton, including Victor Martinez’s RBI single. Erasmo Ramirez (7-7) replaced Garton and allowed Justin Upton’s run-scoring single, Steven Moya’s sacriice ly and an RBI single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia that made it 7-6. Jose Iglesias drew a walk to load the bases, and Ian Kinsler got another free pass on a 3-2 pitch to tie it 7-7. Maybin’s drive to leftcenter cleared the bases to put Detroit up 10-7. Yankees 2, Rangers 1 • Chase Headley scored on a passed ball with two

Bumgarner will bat in AL park • Madison Bumgarner will get to hit for himself — even in an American League park. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said he planned to use his slugging pitcher instead of a designated hitter Thursday night when the Giants visited the Oakland Athletics. It will be the irst time a team intentionally used a pitcher to hit instead of a DH since the Chicago White Sox allowed Ken Brett to do it in 1976. Bumgarner is batting .175 with two homers and ive RBIs. He has nine homers in 183 at-bats the past three seasons. Bumgarner has even made a public plea to enter the All-Star Home Run Derby. Phillies prospect loses eye after accident • Matt Imhof, a Philadelphia Phillies minor league pitcher who sufered an injury to his right eye late last week in a freak training accident, said on social media Thursday that he had his eye removed on the recommendation of doctors, ESPN.com reported.

Wilson also doubled twice during the game. 1941 • Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees singled off Boston’s Jack Wilson in the fourth inning, tying Willie Keeler’s hitting streak of 44 games. 1951 • Bob Feller of the Indians pitched his third career no-hitter, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-1 in the first game of a doubleheader at Cleveland. 1990 • Andy Hawkins of the New York Yankees pitched the sixth no-hitter in the majors this season and the third in less than 48 hours, but lost 4-0 to the Chicago White Sox on two outfield errors in the eighth inning. 1997 • Detroit’s Bobby Higginson homered in the first inning against the New York Mets, tying a major league record by homering in four consecutive at-bats over two games. Higginson, who struck out looking in his next at-bat, became the 23rd player since 1900 to accomplish the feat and the fourth Tiger. 2009 • One run was enough for a victory for three National League teams, the first time in 33 years there were three 1-0 games in one league on the same day. The Mets, Dodgers and Reds came away with 1-0 victories. The last time there were three 1-0 games in one league was Sept. 1, 1976, in the NL. 2009 • One day after succumbing to the greatest comeback in Orioles history, the Red Sox staged an improbable rally of their own. Boston used a four-run ninth inning to pull even, Julio Lugo singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th and Jonathan Papelbon became the team’s career saves leader by closing out a 6-5 victory over Baltimore. 2014 • The Cleveland Indians executed an unorthodox triple play in the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers that required two video replay reviews to sort out. With runners on first and third, Adrian Gonzalez lifted a fly ball to left fielder Michael Brantley, who threw out Dee Gordon at the plate. Catcher Yan Gomes then fired to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the tag on Yasiel Puig as he slid headfirst. Cleveland manager Terry Francona challenged the original safe call at second and got the play overturned after a replay delay that lasted 1 minute, 29 seconds. Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly then challenged the call at the plate, but that call stood after another wait of 1 minute, 34 seconds. Cleveland went on to a 10-3 win. 2015 • Carlos Carrasco came within one strike of throwing the Cleveland Indians’ first no-hitter since 1981, giving up an RBI single to Joey Butler over leaping second baseman Jason Kipnis’ glove in an 8-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Today’s birthdays: Aaron Sanchez 24; Michael Wacha 25; Colin Rea 26; Brett Oberholtzer 27; Mike Montgomery 27; Charlie Blackmon 30; Nelson Cruz 36.

MLB NOTEBOOK Dodgers get Norris, disable Kershaw The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran pitcher Bud Norris from the Atlanta Braves. The move Thursday came on the same day the Dodgers said ace Clayton Kershaw will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back injury that will not require surgery. He received an epidural on Wednesday in Los Angeles. In the deal, the Dodgers also received minor league outielder Dian Toscano, a player to be named and cash considerations from Atlanta for minor league pitchers Philip Pfeifer and Caleb Dirks. Over his last ive starts, Norris is 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA, 29 strikeouts and eight walks over 29 1/3 innings. Kershaw, the three-time NL Cy Young winner, is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA this season. He lost his last start on Sunday night in Pittsburgh, giving up four runs and nine hits in six innings. Marlins trade for Rodney • The Miami Marlins acquired closer Fernando Rodney from San Diego to bolster their bullpen for the NL wild-card chase. Manager Don Mattingly has yet to express a lack of faith in A.J. Ramos, who has converted 33 saves opportunities since last season, so Rodney likely will serve as a setup man. Miami traded minor league pitcher Chris

Carlos Carrasco struck out a season-high 14, Jason Kipnis and Rajai Davis hit solo home runs and the Cleveland Indians matched a franchise record by winning their 13th consecutive game Thursday night, beating the host Toronto Blue Jays 4-1. Cleveland’s streak is the longest by any team this season, and the longest for the Indians since winning 13 straight in 1951. Cleveland also won 13 in a row in 1942. Indians starting pitchers are 10-0 during the streak, and Cleveland has outscored its opponents 80-26. Carrasco (4-2) allowed one run and three hits in 71/3 innings. Tigers 10, Rays 7 • Cameron Maybin capped a dramatic eight-run ninth with a tiebreaking threerun double, and visiting Detroit overcame a ive-run deicit to beat Tampa Bay. Yankees 2, Rangers 1 • Chase Headley scored on a passed ball with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and New York won in its inal at-bat for the second straight game. White Sox 6, Twins 5 • J.B.

Paddack to the Padres. Rodney, 39, will join his seventh team and sixth since 2011. He has 17 saves with 0.31 ERA in 28 games this year. Bumgarner will bat in AL park • Madison Bumgarner will get to hit for himself — even in an American League park. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said he planned to use his slugging pitcher instead of a designated hitter Thursday night when the Giants visited the Oakland Athletics. It will be the irst time a team intentionally used a pitcher to hit instead of a DH since the Chicago White Sox allowed Ken Brett to do it in 1976. Bumgarner is batting .175 with two homers and ive RBIs. He has nine homers in 183 at-bats the past three seasons. Bumgarner has even made a public plea to enter the All-Star Home Run Derby. Phillies prospect loses eye after accident • Matt Imhof, a Philadelphia Phillies minor league pitcher who sufered an injury to his right eye late last week in a freak training accident, said on social media Thursday that he had his eye removed on the recommendation of doctors, ESPN.com reported. From news services

lifted the host New York Mets past Chicago in their irst meeting since last year’s NL Championship Series. The Cubs put runners on second and third with no outs against Familia, who got two strikeouts and a bases-loaded popup for his 27th save. Baez’s throwing error at second base allowed Nimmo to score the go-ahead run, and the Mets overcame a 3-0 deicit to stop their four-game slide. New York, which swept Chicago last October to reach the World Series, had lost nine straight regularseason games to the Cubs dating to August 2014. Dodgers 8, Brewers 1 • Trayce Thompson, Yasmani Grandal and Corey Seager hit home runs, leading visiting Los Angeles. Kenta Maeda (7-5) held the Brewers to one run over six innings as the Dodgers won the season series from the Brewers, ive games to two. Nationals 13, Reds 4 • Danny Espinosa hit a grand slam and a threerun homer to inish with a career-high seven RBIs, and host Washington won its ifth in a row. Espinosa’s second career slam put Washington up 8-1 in the third, and his next drive made it 13-1 in the fourth. Braves 8, Marlins 5 • Pinch-hitter Brandon Snyder had two RBIs in a four-run sixth inning and Atlanta rallied for a victory over visiting Miami. The Marlins have allowed 25 runs in losing their last three games. Associated Press

This Date In Baseball July 1 1910 • Comiskey Park • then known as White Sox Park • held its first major league game, with the St. Louis Browns beating Chicago 2-0. 1917 • Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds pitched complete-game victories in a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Toney threw a three-hitter in each game for 4-1 and 5-1 wins, setting a record for the fewest hits allowed in a doubleheader by a pitcher. 1920 • Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators defeated the Boston Red Sox 1-0 at Fenway Park with the season’s only no-hitter. 1925 • Hack Wilson of the New York Giants hit two home runs in the third inning of a 16-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the second game of a doubleheader. Wilson also doubled twice during the game. 1941 • Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees singled off Boston’s Jack Wilson in the fourth inning, tying Willie Keeler’s hitting streak of 44 games. 1951 • Bob Feller of the Indians pitched his third career no-hitter, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-1 in the first game of a doubleheader at Cleveland. 1990 • Andy Hawkins of the New York Yankees pitched the sixth no-hitter in the majors this season and the third in less than 48 hours, but lost 4-0 to the Chicago White Sox on two outfield errors in the eighth inning. 1997 • Detroit’s Bobby Higginson homered in the first inning against the New York Mets, tying a major league record by homering in four consecutive at-bats over two games. Higginson, who struck out looking in his next at-bat, became the 23rd player since 1900 to accomplish the feat and the fourth Tiger. 2009 • One run was enough for a victory for three National League teams, the first time in 33 years there were three 1-0 games in one league on the same day. The Mets, Dodgers and Reds came away with 1-0 victories. The last time there were three 1-0 games in one league was Sept. 1, 1976, in the NL. 2009 • One day after succumbing to the greatest comeback in Orioles history, the Red Sox staged an improbable rally of their own. Boston used a four-run ninth inning to pull even, Julio Lugo singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th and Jonathan Papelbon became the team’s career saves leader by closing out a 6-5 victory over Baltimore. 2014 • The Cleveland Indians executed an unorthodox triple play in the fourth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers that required two video replay reviews to sort out. With runners on first and third, Adrian Gonzalez lifted a fly ball to left fielder Michael Brantley, who threw out Dee Gordon at the plate. Catcher Yan Gomes then fired to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the tag on Yasiel Puig as he slid headfirst. Cleveland manager Terry Francona challenged the original safe call at second and got the play overturned after a replay delay that lasted 1 minute, 29 seconds. Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly then challenged the call at the plate, but that call stood after another wait of 1 minute, 34 seconds. Cleveland went on to a 10-3 win. 2015 • Carlos Carrasco came within one strike of throwing the Cleveland Indians’ first no-hitter since 1981, giving up an RBI single to Joey Butler over leaping second baseman Jason Kipnis’ glove in an 8-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Today’s birthdays: Aaron Sanchez 24; Michael Wacha 25; Colin Rea 26; Brett Oberholtzer 27; Mike Montgomery 27; Charlie Blackmon 30; Nelson Cruz 36.

Matheny more lexible with bullpen Cards relievers moving away from assigned innings BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

A few times during his tenure as manager, Mike Matheny has candidly acknowledged that sometimes his lateinning assignments are influenced by the save statistic — and the importance his players put on it — and added that there could be a period when decisions are done diferently, based more on the best arm and not the titles or stats. The Cardinals have that opportunity now. With Trevor Rosenthal removed from the ninth and Seung Hwan Oh stationed there, the accumulation of saves is more of a team stat and that has already freed up Matheny to utilize Kevin Siegrist in pivotal moments, not just an assigned inning. “Who is the best guy for this particular spot?” Matheny said before offering a caveat. “I think we’ve increasingly done that. I think we’ve done that more this year than ever before. The ninth gets tricky. There is a lot that goes into that. Pitching that ninth is hard. It’s a diferent entity. … (We) just have to be flexible. Your inning that you’re going to pitch is going to have great value. Just understand that we need you and it might be a little diferent each night.” It’s not the first time that Matheny has been able to peel away from assigned innings and a cemented closer. When Carlos Martinez started 2014 as a setup reliever, Matheny freed him from the eighth at times to face the heart of the opponents’ order. He did similar things with other setup pitchers, and over the past year he has also brought Rosenthal into non-traditional spots — tie games on the road, for example — if it appeared the Cardinals wouldn’t survive that inning without a top reliever. This past Sunday and again Wednesday in the 3-2, 12th-inning loss, Matheny went to the lefty Siegrist to face a lefty-heavy stretch of the opponents’ lineup. That left Tyler Lyons to handle later lefty assignments — something Matheny said cost them a long reliever in extra innings — but it also showed a willingness to use new flexibility to break from strict structure. Matheny explained again Thursday that wins and saves, innings played and innings caught are personal goals for players that he has to respect as motivators. “Saves mean something. Like it or not,” Matheny said. “(But) we have some flexibility there. This usually takes some time. Stuf that you normally like to figure out in spring training — it’s real nice to say this guy is the seventh, this guy is the eighth, this guy is the ninth. I think right now we’ve got the pieces.

Royals catcher Salvador Perez collides with home plate umpire Mike Everitt as he turns to chase a foul ball of the bat of the Cardinals’ Mike Leake on Thursday.

Let’s see how we can put it together. It’s going to change from night to night. “Would I like to get to a point where this is where we’re going to go? I would love to get to that point,” he added. “But it’s going to take some time.”

DIAZ, PISCOTTY MENDING Aledmys Diaz (bruised eye) and Stephen Piscotty (bruised left foot) were expected to be ready if needed to pinchhit or play late in Thursday’s game, though neither were used. Diaz had no limitations before the game as he took part in warmups, and Matheny said the rookie could return to shortstop as soon as Friday. Piscotty, who took a foul ball and a fly ball of the same foot Wednesday, continued receiving treatment on the bruises during warmups, and the manager felt that it would be good to get the second-year right fielder a rest if possible. Scans of the area did not reveal any fractures.

at times, and it stirred manager Mike Matheny enough to draw an ejection in the sixth inning, only partly because of his frustration with an umpire. “I didn’t like some of the things I was seeing, just like most of our team didn’t like things we were seeing,” Matheny said. “It was a game of missed opportunities. Whether guys on base not taking advantage of free bases given to us and then giving up some of our own. That’s kind of been this series with this Royals team. They capitalized on them. We opened the door. I think we made some mistakes. Mistakes happen. You’ve got to fix them, and we’ve been saying this for a while. “When we have games that look like we don’t want them to look we can’t buy into the fact that that’s who we are,” he continued. “Because that’s not who we are.” It is who they have been. Only one team in the majors has committed more errors than the Cardinals’ 62, and it’s the last-place Cincinnati Reds. Only three teams have as few or

has converted 21 of 22 saves and shortstop Jonathan Villar leads the National League in steals at 26. The last time the Brewers were here for the home-opening series, Cardinals outielder Jeremy Hazelbaker was seven for 13 with two doubles, a triple, a home run and three runs batted in. And outielder Randal Grichuk was ive for 11 with a double, home run and ive RBIs. Unless something changes overnight, neither will be starting here Friday night. They are both at Memphis.

fewer home wins than the Cardinals’ 15, and two of them are the last-place Twins and last-place Braves. The uneven play at Busch and in the field has hampered the Cardinals from the sustained success they imagine. In June, the Cardinals swept both Pittsburgh and the first-place Cubs on the road, and yet after losing three of four to the defending World Series champions this week the Cardinals finished June 13-14 overall. It is the first losing month for the Cardinals since June 2012. In Matheny’s previous 26 months as manager, they had only one losing month. “Do we have mistakes? Mental errors? Absolutely,” starter Mike Leake said. “We’re living through it. It’s not like we’re hiding it. It’s just a matter of fixing them, and working at them, and getting better.” The sloppiness started in the first inning when the two Missouri teams offered a tidy contrast for their style of play this season. Leake (5-6) started his seven sturdy innings by striking out the side and he didn’t allow a hit. Yet because of two errors he and the Cardinals trailed,

1-0. Royals starter Chris Young walked three batters, including two before he got an out, and yet the Cardinals did not score a run. Young would go on to walk six batters in his four innings. Not one of those six batters scored. For a team that excelled at run prevention and crisp play a year ago on their way to 100 wins, the Cardinals have sabotaged themselves eagerly this season. Some of the trouble comes from players working at new positions — like Jhonny Peralta at third base. In the second inning, Peralta failed to catch a fly ball down the leftfield line and close to Matt Holliday’s territory. The ball hit off Peralta’s glove, though the diiculty of the play meant it wasn’t an error. That allowed a run to score and the Royals had a 2-0 lead. Back from three months of recovery from knee surgery, Brayan Pena made his first start behind the plate and quickly contributed to the quagmire. Peralta’s error — a fielding error in the first — allowed Whit Merrifield to reach second. He stole third base, and on the attempt to

During a four-game hitting streak for the Redbirds, Grichuk has batted five for 17 (.294) with only one strikeout and four RBIs. Since his demotion, Grichuk has hit .278 with a .500 slugging percentage, two homers, and eight strikeouts in 36 at-bats. • Cardinals Class AA first baseman Luke Voit won the Class AA Texas League’s home run derby during All-Star festivities this week.

catch the thief, Pena threw wide of the base. Pena’s throwing error allowed Merrifield to score for the game’s first run. After the game, Pena stood as one of the few veteran’s available to discuss the loss. He shouldered all of the accountability. “I have to apologize to my teammates,” he said. “Definitely, I’m very embarrassed by my performance today. Today is on me.” Power kept the Cardinals close and underscored the cost of those misplays. Brandon Moss slugged the farthest home run ever hit at Busch, according to the Cardinals’ estimates. Moss’ homer traveled 477 feet and reached at least the last row of the first level beyond right field. MLB.com’s StatCast tracked it at 454 feet. Peralta added a solo home run in the sixth inning. Both homers only narrowed the score, and neither could undo mistakes already made that fed the Royals’ lead. In the eighth, Morales cracked a 456-foot solo home run to cap Kansas City’s scoring and end his 12-for-14 series against the Cardinals. Matheny wasn’t around to witness Morales’ punctuation. In the sixth inning, the Cardinals left the field after turning what they believed to be

an inning-ending double play. Salvador Perez had bounced to shortstop, and although Matt Carpenter bobbled the pivot he was able to throw to first for what appeared to be an out. The Royals were late to challenge, and that meant — after an 88-second review overturned the call — the Cardinals had to put down their bats and head back to the field to play defense. Matheny beat them to it. He argued with home-plate umpire Mike Everitt about the delay. Matheny said at some point he forgot what he said the ump. Lost in ejection was the play that led to the replay in the first place. It wasn’t an error, but had Carpenter not mishandled the pivot the call wouldn’t have been close. The inning would have been over. Again, the Cardinals had to get past themselves before they could their opponent. “I would say that we haven’t hit our stride on a consistent basis, and it needs to be on a consistent basis,” Matheny said. “I haven’t seen that. And you can’t just beat up one thing. To have everything come together, it just hasn’t yet. It’s all there. I know we have it in us.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

OUT AT THIRD

Noah likely to become a Knick FROM NEWS SERVICES

Joakim Noah will meet with the Knicks on Friday, the first full day of NBA free agency, according to a source familiar with Noah’s plans. And all signs point to the longtime Bull signing with the franchise he rooted for while growing up. Noah, who split time between Paris and New York as a youth, is expected to draw interest from other teams, but most executives and agents are working under the assumption that, barring an unexpected snag, Knicks president Phil Jackson will land Noah as his starting center. Bulls general manager Gar Forman said he planned to contact Noah once free agency began. But that’s just respectful lip service as both Noah and the Bulls knew the Bulls landed their starting center when they acquired Robin Lopez from the Knicks in last week’s Derrick Rose trade. The Washington Post reported Noah could sign a deal worth $18 million annually. Noah missed most of last season, having shoulder surgery in January. He averaged 21.9 minutes in 29 games, scoring 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds.

Dreaming isn’t cheap in the minors ORTIZ • FROM C1

Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-KY) and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL). Showing how clueless some politicians can be when trying to pass laws on subjects they aren’t equipped to monitor, Bustos essentially admitted her ignorance when she withdrew her support Wednesday. “Minor League baseball teams are an important part of the economic and social fabric of communities across our nation, including the Quad-Cities and Peoria, in our Congressional District,” Bustos said in a statement Wednesday. “In the last 24 hours, several concerns about the bill have been brought to my attention that have led me to immediately withdraw my support of the legislation. “Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and while it’s important to sustain minor league baseball teams that provide economic support to small communities across America, I cannot support legislation that does so at the expense of the players that draw us to stadiums like those in the QuadCities and Peoria.” Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball (MILB) support the bill, which is opposed by the lawyers who filed a class-action suit claiming minor leaguers are underpaid and exploited. On the surface, it’s tough to side with MLB and MILB. MLB, after all, made $9 billion last year, according to Forbes. MLB teams, not the minor-league affiliates, are responsible for minor-leaguers’ salaries. Surely, MLB teams can afford to raise salaries so minor-leaguers can earn more than the $7,500 many receive for five to six months of work. What happens if the added cost of salaries prompts teams to cut their Low Class A teams and one rookie ball team, as some team oicials pre-

dict? What would happen if the Cardinals pulled out of Peoria and the Astros pulled out of Quad Cities, the two Midwest League teams in Bustos’ district? Low Class A is helpful, of course, but very few of those kids will actually reach the majors. Fans show up to minor-league games for the atmosphere more than for the actual quality of the baseball. There are 162 minor-league teams affiliated with MILB, 30 at Class AAA, 30 at Class AA and 102 in Class A. What happens if that number drops from 162 to 100? “There are approximately 7,500 players in Minor League Baseball,” MLB said in a statement. “MLB pays over a half a billion dollars to Minor League players in signing bonuses and salary each year. Minor League clubs could not aford these massive player costs. “MLB heavily subsidizes Minor League Baseball by providing Minor League clubs with its players, allowing professional baseball to be played in many communities in the United States that cannot support a Major League franchise. Moreover, for the overwhelming majority of individuals, being a Minor League Baseball player is not a career but a short-term seasonal apprenticeship in which the player either advances to the Major Leagues or pursues another career.” In nearly two decades of baseball, I have never heard a team say a minorleaguer was set to begin his “shortterm seasonal apprenticeship.” Although that description seems laughable, most minor-leaguers play about two years before they go to the real world. The second part of MLB’s statement is definitely way more credible. “Minor League Baseball players always have been salaried employees similar to artists, musicians and other creative professionals who are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act,” MLB stated. “Like those professionals, it is simply impracti-

cal to treat professional athletes as hourly employees whose pay may be determined by such things as how long their games last, when they choose to arrive at the ballpark, how much they practice or condition to stay in shape, and how many promotional or charitable appearances they make.” Attorney Garrett Broshuis, who lives in St. Louis and received his law degree from St. Louis University, represents some of the minor-leaguers in the class-action suit. Broshuis received a signing bonus in excess of $100,000 after the Giants picked him in the fifth round of the 2004 draft out of Mizzou. The former pitcher climbed as high as Class AAA, where he posted a 6.19 ERA in 16 innings combined over parts of two seasons. He says life in the minors seemed like a step down for him after playing at Mizzou. “Suddenly you get to minor-league baseball and I’m sleeping in a futon of a host family’s house,” he said. Broshuis retired after six years. The game left him before he left it. He was bright enough to realize his calling was elsewhere. Now he hopes to have more success with his pitches in court with the class-action suit. The players definitely have the advantage in the court of public opinion because only a heartless person would argue against a livable wage for minorleaguers. If the class-action suit succeeds, it will be interesting to see if teams make up the cost by dropping ailiates. America’s pastime doesn’t need saving, but there is a legitimate reason to wonder if some minor-league teams go away if MLB refuses to absorb the costs. How much is your dream worth? That’s the question each kid should ask while the class-action suit works it way through the court system. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

Cavaliers make ofer to Dellavedova • The NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers have made a qualifying ofer to popular backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova, making him a restricted free agent. Dellavedova, 25, is expected to draw interest from other teams once free agency begins, and depending on how much he’s ofered, the Cavs could face a tough decision on whether to re-sign the Australian. He had a solid third season with Cleveland, averaging 7.5 points and 4.4 assists in 24.6 minutes per game. However, his playing time dwindled during the NBA Finals as coach Tyronn Lue gave minutes to Mo Williams. Galloway gets qualifying ofer • The New York Knicks gave Langston Galloway a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent, league sources said. They can match any ofers for Galloway, who has averaged 9.1 points and 3.8 assists in 127 games as a Knick. Team president Phil Jackson said last week that he expects to re-sign Galloway. The Knicks have only five players under contract, and are light on perimeter players. The hardworking Galloway can play both guard spots and has earned the trust and respect of Jackson and other members of the organization. The qualifying ofer was for roughly $2.7 million. Lakers make offers • The Los Angeles Lakers have extended qualifying ofers to Jordan Clarkson, Tarik Black and Marcelo Huertas, making all three players restricted free agents. Clarkson, who formerly played for Mizzou, is averaging 14.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists in two seasons with the Lakers. The former second-round draft pick has emerged as a key rotation player, starting in the backcourt alongside D’Angelo Russell last season. Black started 27 games over the past two seasons, periodically showing promise despite getting sporadic playing time from coach Byron Scott. He averaged 5.3 points and 5.2 rebounds on 57.5 percent shooting for the Lakers. Huertas, 33, averaged a team-leading 3.4 assists per game as a backup last season, the Brazilian’s first in the NBA after an international playing career. Nets waive Jack • The Brooklyn Nets have waived guard Jarrett Jack, who was lost to a torn ACL in January. The Nets will owe Jack just $500,000 by waiving him by a June 30 deadline. He would have been paid $6.3 million next season if he remained on the roster after Thursday. Jack started all 32 games he played in last season, averaging 12.8 points and 7.4 assists. He was a reliable backup to Deron Williams the previous season and hit a couple of game-winning shots. Jack has also played for Portland, Indiana, Toronto, New Orleans, Golden State and Cleveland during his 11-year career, averaging 11.1 points. Mejri has surgery • Dallas Mavericks center Salah Mejri underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Thursday for a right knee debridement. In his rookie year for the Mavericks this past season, Mejri averaged 3.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in only 11.7 minutes per game. The 7-2, 235-pounder from Tunisia played in 34 games this past season.

Valmeyer Tournament brings out best of baseball tradition VALMEYER • FROM C1

ment is its pièce de résistance, and this year’s edition is the hub of the Valmeyer Mid-Summer Celebration that commemorates Monroe County’s 200th birthday. The holiday extravaganza offers a veritable bufet of Fourth of July activities, including a kickof parade, live music, fireworks, threshing demonstrations, volleyball, lawn tractor races, brats, pork steaks … and all the baseball you can swallow. It is a throwback to community picnics of yore, when people baked pies, swapped lies and spent time together — outdoors. You won’t need wifi, and entry is free. In 1985, St. Louis Maritz led East Alton by a run going into the bottom of the ninth inning of a semifinal game. East Alton put two runners aboard with no one out and the next batter smoked a line drive toward right field. Maritz first baseman Scott Cepicky, who would later play in the Chicago White Sox organization, didn’t have time to glove the ball. But Cepicky, a punter at the University of Wisconsin, did what came naturally. He kicked at the ball, deflecting it toward second base.

The Maritz shortstop caught the deflection before it hit the ground, stepped on second and tagged the runner off first for a game-ending triple play. You can’t teach that. “It was unbelievable,” Valmeyer manager Dennis Pieper said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. Thank God we had a veteran umpire working. The base umpire was looking around like he didn’t know what to call. “But the home-plate umpire had worked a few years in TripleA and he came out, pointed at each player and said, ‘You’re out, you’re out and you’re out, the game’s over.’” Unable to put weight on his aching foot, Cepicky had to be carried off the field. Maritz went on to beat Valmeyer in the championship, and Cepicky was named the tournament MVP, in part, no doubt, for his foot’sup play. Cepicky was one of the more than 30 players that have been scouted at the Valmeyer Tournament and drafted by major league teams. The list includes former Cardinals Gary Gaetti, T.J. Mathews, Neil Fiala, former Cubs righthander Randy Wells, former Texas lefthander John Rheinecker and former big-

league hurler and Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach Ray Rippelmeyer. And dramatic finishes are part and parcel. On one occasion, Belleville trailed by two going to the bottom of the ninth of the championship game. A rally ensued, and when it produced one more big hit, the potential winning run came chugging toward third, heading for home. In his exuberance to wave the runner home, Belleville’s hefty third-base coach lost his balance, stumbled and fell. At the precise moment he hit the ground, a bolt of lighting exploded against a tree some 150 yards beyond the home-plate backstop. The skies opened and rain poured down in buckets. The winning run crossed the plate just in time, as the deluge brought the proceedings to an abrupt end.

A RICH HISTORY The stories are part of the rich history of the tournament, as are the teams, the families and the characters. Pieper began playing Mon-Clair League baseball when he was 14, following in the cleat-steps of his father, Mickey Pieper. Dennis has been coaching the Valmeyer Lakers for 48 years

and now has a grandson playing on the team. Vern Moehrs first played for Waterloo in 1952. He became player/manager in 1961 and has been embedded as the skipper since. In 1998, his Waterloo team finished a remarkable 47-1. Only Rocky Marciano and Floyd Mayweather (49-0) have been better. “My wife doesn’t want me to quit,” said Moehrs, whose club has won the tournament 14 times. “She think’s I’ll just sit in a chair.” Moehrs is 82 now. The fastball isn’t quite what it used to be, the range not the same. But in his 56th managerial season, he still matches wits with the best of ’em, and still loves the game. “It’s a great tournament, so much fun to go to,” he said. “You know, one of the reasons it’s so good is the fact they play nineinning games. And if you play nine-inning games, and you can go through 27 innings on hot summer days when it’s close to 100 degrees, you’ve earned the championship.” The St. Louis Printers, managed by Tony Caradonna, played in the original Union Printers International Baseball League Tournament, which took place in 1908.

The Cape Girardeau Capahas — named for a flour company, not the Capaha Indian tribe — began play in 1894 and is recognized as the nation’s oldest amateur team. In 1931, future Hall of Fame pitcher Dizzy Dean faced the Capahas during an exhibition in Charleston, Mo. Dean won 26 games for Houston of the Texas League that summer, and he would win 18 for the Cardinals in 1932. But on that day, he was out-shined by former Browns hurler and Cape Girardeau native Elam Vangilder. A 19-game winner for the Browns in 1922, Vangilder struck out 22 and pitched the Capahas to a 4-0 win. Jess Bolen began playing for the Capahas in 1959 and became manager in 1967. He will retire at the end of the summer, his 50th at the helm. Bolen has led the Cape club to 19 state championships and 34 consecutive National Baseball Congress World Series appearances. But his Cape Girardeau club has never won the Valmeyer Tournament. “It’s hard tournament to win,” Moehrs added. “When you do, you know you’ve earned it. You know you’ve done something special.”

NBA NOTEBOOK

OUT AT THIRD

Noah likely to become a Knick FROM NEWS SERVICES

Joakim Noah will meet with the Knicks on Friday, the first full day of NBA free agency, according to a source familiar with Noah’s plans. And all signs point to the longtime Bull signing with the franchise he rooted for while growing up. Noah, who split time between Paris and New York as a youth, is expected to draw interest from other teams, but most executives and agents are working under the assumption that, barring an unexpected snag, Knicks president Phil Jackson will land Noah as his starting center. Bulls general manager Gar Forman said he planned to contact Noah once free agency began. But that’s just respectful lip service as both Noah and the Bulls knew the Bulls landed their starting center when they acquired Robin Lopez from the Knicks in last week’s Derrick Rose trade. The Washington Post reported Noah could sign a deal worth $18 million annually. Noah missed most of last season, having shoulder surgery in January. He averaged 21.9 minutes in 29 games, scoring 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds.

Dreaming isn’t cheap in the minors ORTIZ • FROM C1

Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-KY) and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL). Showing how clueless some politicians can be when trying to pass laws on subjects they aren’t equipped to monitor, Bustos essentially admitted her ignorance when she withdrew her support Wednesday. “Minor League baseball teams are an important part of the economic and social fabric of communities across our nation, including the Quad-Cities and Peoria, in our Congressional District,” Bustos said in a statement Thursday. “In the last 24 hours, several concerns about the bill have been brought to my attention that have led me to immediately withdraw my support of the legislation. “Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and while it’s important to sustain minor league baseball teams that provide economic support to small communities across America, I cannot support legislation that does so at the expense of the players that draw us to stadiums like those in the QuadCities and Peoria.” Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball (MILB) support the bill, which is opposed by the lawyers who filed a class-action suit claiming minor leaguers are underpaid and exploited. On the surface, it’s tough to side with MLB and MILB. MLB, after all, made $9 billion last year, according to Forbes. MLB teams, not the minor-league affiliates, are responsible for minor-leaguers’ salaries. Surely, MLB teams can afford to raise salaries so minor-leaguers can earn more than the $7,500 many receive for five to six months of work. What happens if the added cost of salaries prompts teams to cut their Low Class A teams and one rookie ball team, as some team oicials pre-

dict? What would happen if the Cardinals pulled out of Peoria and the Astros pulled out of Quad Cities, the two Midwest League teams in Bustos’ district? Low Class A is helpful, of course, but very few of those kids will actually reach the majors. Fans show up to minor-league games for the atmosphere more than for the actual quality of the baseball. There are 162 minor-league teams affiliated with MILB, 30 at Class AAA, 30 at Class AA and 102 in Class A. What happens if that number drops from 162 to 100? “There are approximately 7,500 players in Minor League Baseball,” MLB said in a statement. “MLB pays over a half a billion dollars to Minor League players in signing bonuses and salary each year. Minor League clubs could not aford these massive player costs. “MLB heavily subsidizes Minor League Baseball by providing Minor League clubs with its players, allowing professional baseball to be played in many communities in the United States that cannot support a Major League franchise. Moreover, for the overwhelming majority of individuals, being a Minor League Baseball player is not a career but a short-term seasonal apprenticeship in which the player either advances to the Major Leagues or pursues another career.” In nearly two decades of baseball, I have never heard a team say a minorleaguer was set to begin his “shortterm seasonal apprenticeship.” Although that description seems laughable, most minor-leaguers play about two years before they go to the real world. The second part of MLB’s statement is definitely way more credible. “Minor League Baseball players always have been salaried employees similar to artists, musicians and other creative professionals who are exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act,” MLB stated. “Like those professionals, it is simply impracti-

cal to treat professional athletes as hourly employees whose pay may be determined by such things as how long their games last, when they choose to arrive at the ballpark, how much they practice or condition to stay in shape, and how many promotional or charitable appearances they make.” Attorney Garrett Broshuis, who lives in St. Louis and received his law degree from St. Louis University, represents some of the minor-leaguers in the class-action suit. Broshuis received a signing bonus in excess of $100,000 after the Giants picked him in the fifth round of the 2004 draft out of Mizzou. The former pitcher climbed as high as Class AAA, where he posted a 6.19 ERA in 16 innings combined over parts of two seasons. He says life in the minors seemed like a step down for him after playing at Mizzou. “Suddenly you get to minor-league baseball and I’m sleeping in a futon of a host family’s house,” he said. Broshuis retired after six years. The game left him before he left it. He was bright enough to realize his calling was elsewhere. Now he hopes to have more success with his pitches in court with the class-action suit. The players definitely have the advantage in the court of public opinion because only a heartless person would argue against a livable wage for minorleaguers. If the class-action suit succeeds, it will be interesting to see if teams make up the cost by dropping ailiates. America’s pastime doesn’t need saving, but there is a legitimate reason to wonder if some minor-league teams go away if MLB refuses to absorb the costs. How much is your dream worth? That’s the question each kid should ask while the class-action suit works it way through the court system. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

Cavaliers make ofer to Dellavedova • The NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers have made a qualifying ofer to popular backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova, making him a restricted free agent. Dellavedova, 25, is expected to draw interest from other teams once free agency begins, and depending on how much he’s ofered, the Cavs could face a tough decision on whether to re-sign the Australian. He had a solid third season with Cleveland, averaging 7.5 points and 4.4 assists in 24.6 minutes per game. However, his playing time dwindled during the NBA Finals as coach Tyronn Lue gave minutes to Mo Williams. Galloway gets qualifying ofer • The New York Knicks gave Langston Galloway a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent, league sources said. They can match any ofers for Galloway, who has averaged 9.1 points and 3.8 assists in 127 games as a Knick. Team president Phil Jackson said last week that he expects to re-sign Galloway. The Knicks have only five players under contract, and are light on perimeter players. The hardworking Galloway can play both guard spots and has earned the trust and respect of Jackson and other members of the organization. The qualifying ofer was for roughly $2.7 million. Lakers make offers • The Los Angeles Lakers have extended qualifying ofers to Jordan Clarkson, Tarik Black and Marcelo Huertas, making all three players restricted free agents. Clarkson, who formerly played for Mizzou, is averaging 14.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists in two seasons with the Lakers. The former second-round draft pick has emerged as a key rotation player, starting in the backcourt alongside D’Angelo Russell last season. Black started 27 games over the past two seasons, periodically showing promise despite getting sporadic playing time from coach Byron Scott. He averaged 5.3 points and 5.2 rebounds on 57.5 percent shooting for the Lakers. Huertas, 33, averaged a team-leading 3.4 assists per game as a backup last season, the Brazilian’s first in the NBA after an international playing career. Nets waive Jack • The Brooklyn Nets have waived guard Jarrett Jack, who was lost to a torn ACL in January. The Nets will owe Jack just $500,000 by waiving him by a June 30 deadline. He would have been paid $6.3 million next season if he remained on the roster after Thursday. Jack started all 32 games he played in last season, averaging 12.8 points and 7.4 assists. He was a reliable backup to Deron Williams the previous season and hit a couple of game-winning shots. Jack has also played for Portland, Indiana, Toronto, New Orleans, Golden State and Cleveland during his 11-year career, averaging 11.1 points. Mejri has surgery • Dallas Mavericks center Salah Mejri underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Thursday for a right knee debridement. In his rookie year for the Mavericks this past season, Mejri averaged 3.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in only 11.7 minutes per game. The 7-2, 235-pounder from Tunisia played in 34 games this past season.

Valmeyer Tournament brings out best of baseball tradition VALMEYER • FROM C1

ment is its pièce de résistance, and this year’s edition is the hub of the Valmeyer Mid-Summer Celebration that commemorates Monroe County’s 200th birthday. The holiday extravaganza offers a veritable bufet of Fourth of July activities, including a kickof parade, live music, fireworks, threshing demonstrations, volleyball, lawn tractor races, brats, pork steaks … and all the baseball you can swallow. It is a throwback to community picnics of yore, when people baked pies, swapped lies and spent time together — outdoors. You won’t need wifi, and entry is free. In 1985, St. Louis Maritz led East Alton by a run going into the bottom of the ninth inning of a semifinal game. East Alton put two runners aboard with no one out and the next batter smoked a line drive toward right field. Maritz first baseman Scott Cepicky, who would later play in the Chicago White Sox organization, didn’t have time to glove the ball. But Cepicky, a punter at the University of Wisconsin, did what came naturally. He kicked at the ball, deflecting it toward second base.

The Maritz shortstop caught the deflection before it hit the ground, stepped on second and tagged the runner off first for a game-ending triple play. You can’t teach that. “It was unbelievable,” Valmeyer manager Dennis Pieper said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. Thank God we had a veteran umpire working. The base umpire was looking around like he didn’t know what to call. “But the home-plate umpire had worked a few years in TripleA and he came out, pointed at each player and said, ‘You’re out, you’re out and you’re out, the game’s over.’” Unable to put weight on his aching foot, Cepicky had to be carried off the field. Maritz went on to beat Valmeyer in the championship, and Cepicky was named the tournament MVP, in part, no doubt, for his foot’sup play. Cepicky was one of the more than 30 players that have been scouted at the Valmeyer Tournament and drafted by major league teams. The list includes former Cardinals Gary Gaetti, T.J.

No. 2 seed Muguruza loses in straight sets to player ranked 124th THE WASHINGTON POST

LONDON • The merciless nature of the global women’s tennis tour found its quintessence Thursday on the stadium court called Court One, when a fresh star arrived a little tired in a world that no longer allows for a little tired. Arrive a little tired, and a player ranked No. 124 who spent six days in a hospital with pneumonia 17 months ago might blast you 6-3, 6-2, as Jana Cepelova of Slovakia did to No. 2 seed Garbine Muguruza, the French Open champion and 2015 Wimbledon finalist. Of course, in the relative hodgepodge of women’s tennis in the 2010s, she also might have some shiny results in her past: a win over Serena Williams in South Carolina, a win over Simona Halep last year at Wimbledon. “I think she played great, with no fear,” the Spanish star said of the player known only to tennis savants. When Muguruza, that rare person to outhit Williams as she did in Paris, lost emphatically to Cepelova in merely the second round, it threw more flattery onto some other people. Those include Williams — who has avoided such days enough to spread 21 Grand Slam titles across 17 years and 10 across the 2010s — and the venerated male tennis big four. Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have hogged Grand Slam semifinal spots to such a degree this decade that only 20 men have been to a final four. In the more formless world of women’s tennis, 37 have. Only 10 men have been to Grand Slam finals. Twenty-three women have. Revealing the nature of their tour, their names bob up and down, excellent players all, appearing in big finals and then returning to the great-big muddle of more anonymous excellence. In this kind of world, the removal of a No. 2 seed doesn’t bring shock, as maybe only a

removal of Williams even does anymore. That’s not to mention the other kind of removal of Maria Sharapova, 10 times a Grand Slam semifinalist this decade and banned recently for a doping violation. “I’m not here to not win,” said Venus Williams, a seventime Grand Slam winner who has reached the third round. “What’s the point of being here? It’s easier said than done. Everyone’s playing well. Everybody plays really well. There’s no easy matches.” A little dip goes a long way down, and Muguruza, 22, guessed she might have done too much after the breakthrough of winning the French. She played an event in Spain, and lost in the round of 32. She kept practicing. “I had to play today,” she said. “I went to the court. I didn’t find it [her game]. But at least I was there looking for a chance.” She said, “I think I will have to rest more.” And she said, “I’m going to learn that you really need to

concentrate on how to recover, and don’t reach a moment where your energy is too low, especially to play a Grand Slam and to face opponents that, hey, they’re good, they’re here, they want to beat you so much. You got to be ready. You cannot go out there not at your best.” The idea that Muguruza could build on her French breakthrough, perhaps toward a fresh rivalry with Williams, stalled for now in the hard world. At the same time, it would not surprise any careful viewer that just because Cepelova, 23, spent four of the previous five Grand Slams rummaging around the ruthless wilds of qualifying draws without reaching main draws, it does not mean she can’t take advantage, especially on grass. Her up-and-down bio, one of the numerous up-and-down bios out there, included these five dreary words from the outset of 2015 which she uttered on Thursday: “I had pneumonia in Melbourne.” “I was six days in hospital, but

Predators move to buy out contract of ex-Blue Jackman ASSOCIATED PRESS

Barret Jackman, the longtime Blues defenseman who signed as a free agent with Nashville before the 2015-16 season, has been placed on waivers by the Predators for purposes of buying out his contract. Jackman signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Predators, but by buying him out the team will save $1.3 million against the salary cap. Jackman played in 73 games for the Predators last season and was a plus-1. If he isn’t claimed on waivers, he will be an unrestricted free agent. Jackman was one of several players to be put on waivers for buyout purposes on Thursday. Others included Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Matt Carle, Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Matt Greene, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll and Edmonton Oilers forward Lauri Korpikoski are the others, The Carle buyout saves the Lightning $3.67 million in cap space for the next two seasons, while the Seidenberg buyout saves the Bruins $2.83 million next season. Rozsival, Mashinter back with Blackhawks • The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to oneyear contracts with veteran defenseman Michal Rozsival and forward Brandon Mashinter. The 37-year-old Rozsival had a goal and 12 assists last season — his fourth with the Blackhawks and 15th in the NHL. The 27-year-old Mashinter, an enforcer, had four goals and an assist in his first season with Chicago. He played parts of three seasons with San Jose (2010-11) and the New York Rangers (2012-14). Chicago finished third in the Western Conference before losing to the Blues in the first round of the playofs. Kings’ Brown unhappy with demotion • After eight seasons and two Stanley Cup titles as the Los Angeles Kings’ captain, Dustin Brown thought he deserved better. Brown doesn’t agree with the Kings’ decision to strip him of their captaincy this summer, and he aired his diferences with team management Thursday in a phone interview. “I felt like I’ve done a very good job leading this team,” he said. “The last couple of years have been really disappointing for all involved, and we all have a lot of work to do to get back where we want to be. “But I just remember when I was named captain, where we were at as a team. It was not a pretty picture. So what I’ve been able to accomplish with the help of a lot of my

teammates has been pretty great, and I felt I’m still able to do that.” Anze Kopitar was appointed the Kings’ captain two weeks ago after a series of meetings among Brown, coach Darryl Sutter and general manager Dean Lombardi. Brown said the decision was made several weeks before that, but the team waited to announce it until well after news of the plan leaked to reporters. “Ultimately, I understand the decision and I respect the decision,” Brown said. “Part of my problem was how it was handled. It just put me in an awkward spot.” Brown also said he believes the Kings have tried to trade him. When asked to describe his current relationship with Kings management, he replied: “I’m not going to say it’s rosy.” His declining ofensive production and his $47 million contract through the 202122 season make him practically unmovable, but Brown isn’t interested in leaving, anyway. Brown hasn’t scored 30 points in any of the Kings’ past four seasons. The U.S. Olympian is no longer widely considered one of the NHL’s top power forwards, and Lombardi said he hopes Brown will rediscover his game with the burden of leadership lifted. Sharks reach deal with Hertl • San Jose signed pending restricted free agent forward Tomas Hertl to a two-year contract worth a reported $6 million, keeping one of the team’s top young players in the fold as the Sharks try to build on last season’s trip to the Stanley Cup Final. The 22-year-old Hertl is coming of his best season as a pro, having recorded career highs with 21 goals and 25 assists in 81 games. He thrived when moved to the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski in the middle of the season and was a big reason behind San Jose’s postseason success. “I won’t even put a limit on him,” general manager Doug Wilson said. “He just gets better and better. He’s a big, strong guy. ... When we drafted him, we expected him to be a dominant player and so does he. He has high expectations for himself. He loves to play the game. You can see that smile on his face. It’s contagious.” Hertl got off to a fast start as a rookie in 2013-14, scoring 15 goals in 35 games before being sidelined by a knee injury. He returned late that season and struggled to regain that form. But after scoring just four goals in his first 37 games last season when he played both center and wing, Hertl surged when moved to the top line as a wing alongside Thornton and Pavelski.

the recovery was around three or four months,” she said. Having clambered out of the qualifying this time, she wound up on the court where she uprooted the No. 3 seed Halep last year. “From the beginning I felt really good on the court, because I had such good memories from the last year,” she said. “I beat Halep there. And I step on the court really with the confidence. I just believe (in) myself every point, every game.” So many of them do, at least sporadically, much as Muguruza did on June 4 when she became the second debut Grand Slam champion this year already. By Thursday of the first week, she was out, and saying, “I think that’s part of being at the top level. I would not change that. I know every time I step on the court, well, they want to beat me so much. They’re all kind of loose because they have nothing to lose. But I like that. It makes me in a good situation. Hopefully I can keep it like this.” It’s hard to do.

make.” The Blues, meanwhile, are also keeping in contact with Brouwer, who like Backes also has has generated significant interest around the NHL during the week-long “courting” period. “A little less dialogue with Troy than David,” Armstrong said. “He’s another guy that we have a lot of respect for, and if there was a way to do something that he was comfortable with, we’d certainly try and get it done.” If the Blues lose out on Backes or Brouwer, or both, they will be turning to Plan B on Friday. The club has spoken with seven or eight pending UFAs — not all forwards — to gauge their interest. “Yeah, we’ve certainly done our due diligence with all the guys that are available,” Armstrong said. The options include left winger Andrew Ladd, 30, who scored 25 goals in 78 games with Chicago and Winnipeg last season; left winger Loui Eriksson, 30, who had 30 goals in 82 games with Boston; right winger Kyle Okposo, 28, who had 22 goals in 79 games with the New York Islanders; and left winger Milan Lucic, 28, who had 20 goals in 81 games for LA. “There are certainly guys that can help our franchise, there’s no question about that, but can they help through the term of their contract?” Armstrong said. “That’s the decision we have to make. If we are as an organization uncomfortable giving certain term contracts to our guys, then we’re just as uncomfortable getting these other guys too. “I certainly understand it, they want as much term as possible and as much money as possible. (But) we have to try and balance what’s good on July 1 with what’s also good a year or two now from July 1. We want to pay the guys fairly and we want to be involved, but we don’t want to be in that buyout market year in and year out either.” Armstrong admitted that he’d like to add at least one top-nine forward to his roster, joining Vladimir Tarasenko, Paul Stastny, Alexander Steen, Jori Lehtera, Jaden Schwartz, Patrik Berglund, Robby Fabbri and Dmitrij Jaskin. The club also expects Vladimir Sobotka to return next season. “If we could find a top-nine forward, then with those two young kids (Fabbri and Jaskin) we have 10 top-nine forwards,” Armstrong said. “You’d really like to have 10 or 11 that you think are capable of playing, so when you have injuries, you have two extra guys. If we can return the veterans, that’s great. “But if we don’t believe it’s in the best long-term interest of the franchise, then we’ll go to the younger guys. We were

probably a little vet-heavy last year compared to other teams around the league. And next year we might be a little vet-light.” Schwartz is penciled into the Blues’ lineup, though without a new contract, he will become a restricted free agent Friday. “Nothing has changed,” Armstrong said of the negotiations. “We’d love to get Jaden signed to a longer-term deal and we’ll see if that can get done.” Schwartz is eligible to receive an ofer sheet from other clubs this summer. The Blues would have the right to match, but Armstrong said he doesn’t expect to be dealing with that issue. “If there’s offer sheets going out, I don’t think we’re in jeopardy of having one come against us,” Armstrong said. The more pressing matters Friday are Backes and Brouwer. It would seem imperative that Armstrong learn their decisions sooner than later, so that he can move on, but the GM seemed less concerned than one might think. “This isn’t our first rodeo,” Armstrong said. “We know what the players are going through and what we’re going through.” Armstrong added that his free-agency plans are also unfazed by the lack of deals involving defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. He wouldn’t comment on whether trade talks have cooled down, but sounded like a return was not out of the question. “I’ll just let it sit and do it behind closed doors,” Armstrong said. “But I expect him to come back and I expect him to have a good year here. He’s an unrestricted free agent (in 2017) and that’s usually when you play at your absolute maximum.” The Blues’ free-agency plans have been kept behind closed doors for several weeks, but now in the 11th hour, it’s time to see how it unfolds.

MAGA WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP

U.S. OLYMPIC TRIALS

Coach Port still quite the player in taking 15th title

Phelps, Lochte set up showdown in 200 IM

BY DAN O’NEILL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Ellen Port’s life is in a different place these days. She’s the women’s golf coach at Washington University, where she focuses on her young players, not herself. Then again, some things never change. That is, she can still play. Port, who has won six USGA championships, played on two U.S. Curtis Cup teams and coached the 2014 Curtis Cup squad to a victory at St. Louis Country Club, showed Thursday she still has the chops. She captured the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association Women’s Championship at Greenbriar Hills Country Club. The MAGA title was the 15th for Port, who also is a nine-time Missouri Amateur champion and one of the most decorated amateurs in history. The victory also demonstrated the transcending qualities of Port’s talent. On Wednesday, the 53-year old’s group included another outstanding senior amateur

— two-time winner Barbara Berkmeyer — and University of Arkansas junior Shawn Rennegarbe, 20. Port and Rennegarbe carded par 71s, while Berkmeyer had a 76. For Thursday’s final round, co-leaders Port and Rennegarbe were joined by Lindenwood freshman Natalie Long and her first-round 74. But the stretch run was no contest. As Rennegarbe stumbled to an 81, and Long lost touch with a 78, Port secured the trophy with seven strokes to spare, shooting a final-round 74. The MAGA title was the third in succession for Port, who previously won seven consecutive championships (2000-2006). “I haven’t played competitively since last September,” said Port, who was named WU’s coach last August. “I’ve really had very little practice time. I love what I’m doing now and I’m focused on coaching my college kids, that’s where most of my time is spent.” “I didn’t really know what to

expect. But anytime you win, it doesn’t matter how often you’ve done it, it’s special.” The finale was stalled three times and delayed a total of 3½ hours by weather. The waiting was not kind to Rennegarbe, who bogeyed five of her first seven holes. Likewise, Long dropped three strokes in her first four holes and made the turn with a 4-over-par 40. Port also had some soggy moments, She played the front side in 38, then sufered consecutive bogeys on Nos. 14 and 15. But before things got too interesting, Port showed her pedigree. At No. 16, she chipped in from 12 yards of the green, clinching the outcome with a spectacular birdie. “It was really hard today, with the delays and everything,” Port acknowledged. “Then I had those two bogeys …” She added with a laugh: “If I hadn’t chipped in on 16 there, I was ready to slash my wrist.” Dan O’Neill @wwdod on Twitter doneill@post-dispatch.com

McGirt shows of in Ohio again

ASSOCIATED PRESS

William McGirt won the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, last month and shot 6-under 64 in Akron, Ohio, Thursday.

He leads Bridgestone by three ASSOCIATED PRESS

AKRON, OHIO • Golf in Ohio must bring out the best in William McGirt. One month after his first PGA Tour victory at the Memorial, McGirt looked just as good two hours up the road at the Bridgestone Invitational. In his World Golf Championship debut, he opened with six birdies and finished with a 45foot par for a 6-under 64 and a three-shot lead. An Ohio sweep? That’s only happened four times, and McGirt guessed right at the answer. “Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods, T iger Woods and T iger Woods?” he said. “That would be pretty special company.” He had some decent company behind him after an opening round of warm sunshine and fast conditions at Firestone. Jason Day, the world’s No. 1 player, was among three players at 67, while Jordan Spieth somehow managed to post a 68 despite having only one birdie attempt (he missed) in his first 10 holes. “I wasn’t supposed to shoot 2 under today,” Spieth said. U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson had a U.S. Open kind of round — 15 pars, two birdies and a bogey — for a 69. His big celebration was walking of the 11th green to learn that his alma mater, Coastal Carolina, had just won the College World Series for its first national title. His golf wasn’t bad considering that he didn’t practice much last week while celebrating his first major (and his 32nd birth-

day) in The Bahamas. “I didn’t expect a whole lot today,” Johnson said. “I always expect to play well, but this golf course is playing tough.” Only 17 players of the 61man field broke par. The first round ended with only 58 players. Daniel Berger withdrew after his opening tee shot with a shoulder injury. Brooks Koepka withdrew after 13 holes with an ankle injury. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, playing at Firestone for the first time since 2009, withdrew after a 78 because of what was described as a torn labrum. The field also was missing Rory McIlroy and Masters champion Danny Willett, among several European Tour players who opted to play the French Open this week. McGirt had never played in a WGC until he became eligible with his playoff victory at Muirfield Village a month ago. He showed up at Firestone on Sunday, played nine holes and rode in a cart on the back nine. “I fell in love with the place because length is not everything out here,” McGirt said. “You have to drive it in the fairway. You have to drive it in the correct spots in the fairways to be able to attack pins. I love it because you can’t stand up there and just hit it as hard as you want, go find it and hack it on the green. It’s an old, traditional style golf course, which I absolutely love. “I don’t know, maybe it’s something with Ohio I like,” he added.

GOLF ROUNDUP McIlroy ive shots behind in French Open In the midst of drastic changes to his swing, Rory McIlroy shot an evenpar 71 at the French Open to lie ive shots of the lead held by Lucas Bjerregaard midway through the irst round on Thursday. McIlroy, in the spotlight because of his decision to skip the Olympics over concerns about the Zika virus, had four birdies and four bogeys around L’Albatros course at the Le Golf National, the 2018 Ryder Cup host. Bjerregaard shot a 5-under 66, helped by a hole-in-one at No. 2 from 202 yards.. Laird leads Barracuda • Martin Laird of Scotland piled up points with eight birdies to take the irst-round lead of the PGA Tour’s Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nev. Laird’s inal birdie on the par-5 18th hole gave him 15 points, one ahead of Gary Woodland, Camilo Villegas and Greg Chalmers. The Barracuda Championship uses a modiied Stableford scoring system, with ive points for an eagle, two points for a birdie and deductions of one point for a bogey and two points for a double bogey. Henderson leads LPGA event • Defending champion Brooke Henderson shot a 7-under 65 to take a two-stroke lead after the opening round of the LPGA Cambia Portland (Ore.) Classic. Picking up where she left of from a year ago, when Henderson shot a 21-under 267 to win her irst LPGA tournament, the Canadian, 18, hit 16 greens and made nine birdies. Angela Stanford, Demi Runas and Mariajo Uribe each shot 67 to trail Henderson. Associated Press

Michael Phelps spits water after swimming in the men’s 200-meter individual medley preliminaries on Thursday, in Omaha, Neb.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

OMAHA , NEB . • Michael

Phelps and Ryan Lochte did their part. The longtime rivals are headed to another showdown at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials. Phelps and Lochte cruised through the semifinals of the 200-meter individual medley Thursday night, each of them winning their heats in dominating fashion. “It means a lot,” Lochte said. “I’ve been racing him in this event since like 2003. He’s a tough competitor. I just love racing against him because it’s a challenge.” This one is especially significant for Lochte, an 11-time Olympic medalist who has yet to qualify for an individual event in Rio. Slowed by a groin injury, the 31-year-old Lochte missed out in the 400 IM — a race he won at the Olympics four years ago — finished fourth in the 200 freestyle, and dropped out of the 200 backstroke. Though also entered in the 100 butterfly, Lochte is basically putting all his hopes on the 200 IM. A top-two finish will give him that cherished spot, but he really wants a win over Phelps in Friday night’s final before they head to the Olympics. “I’m feeling better as far as like mentally, but physically I’m getting tired,” said Lochte, who at the very least will be going to Rio as a relay swimmer. “Tomorrow night will definitely be a good battle between me and Michael.” Lochte was the top qualifier at 1 minute, 56.71 seconds, while Phelps took the second spot in 1:57.61. That means they’ll be right beside each other in the final, just as they’ve been so many times during their dazzling careers. Phelps has already qualified for Rio in the 200 fly, but the most decorated athlete in Olympic history is eager to add two more individual races to his program. He’ll be a big favorite in the 100 fly, a race in which Lochte doesn’t figure to be a major threat. This is their only real chance to race. “Him and I have gone back and forth a number of times in this race,” Phelps said. “Dur-

ing the big meets, we have great races. We’re right there with each other tomorrow in the middle of the pool, probably a couple of tenths apart. We’re going to be out and probably step on the gas a little bit more than we have in the past and you’ll have an exciting race.” Missy Franklin, on the other hand, didn’t even advance to the final of the 100 freestyle. Another big star from London struggled to an 11th-place showing in the semifinals, leaving her with only one individual race in Rio and just one more chance to bulk up her program: the 200 backstroke. No matter what, Franklin’s bubbly personality will be much less of a presence at these Summer Games than it was four years ago. “That speed just doesn’t feel like it’s quite there this meet,” she said. “No idea why. It’s super disappointing, but I really feel like my endurance is there, so it gives me a lot of hope for my 200 back.” While Franklin is struggling, another Olympic gold medalist will get a chance to defend his title. Nathan Adrian, the burly 27-year-old who won the 100 freestyle in London, used a powerful finishing kick to win in 47.72 seconds. Caeleb Dressel will also get to swim the down-and-back sprint in Rio, taking the second spot at 48.23. Anthony Ervin, the oldest swimmer at the trials, got of to a blistering start and led at the turn. The 35-year-old couldn’t hold on, fading to fourth in 48.54 while also touching behind Ryan Held (48.26). But the top four are assured of spots on the team for the 4x100 free relay, meaning Ervin will be headed to his third Olympics. On the fifth night of the meet, Josh Prenot became the latest Olympic rookie to make the team, knocking off Kevin Cordes in the 200 breaststroke. Cordes had already won the 100 breast and was more than a second under world-record pace at the final turn of the longer race. But Prenot, furiously bouncing up and down in the water, surged past Cordes on the final lap to win in 2 minutes, 7.17 seconds, setting an American record and finishing just of the world mark of 2:07.01.

OLYMPIC NOTEBOOK U.S. Olympic track and ield trials start Friday The U.S. Olympic track trials begin Friday in Eugene, Ore. Among the things to watch: • Allyson Felix, the most decorated female sprinter in U.S. history, will have to grit out spots on the 200- and 400meter teams to have a chance to become the irst woman to capture that double at the Olympics. The 30-year-old, sixtime Olympic medalist landed awkwardly on a medicine ball while doing core exercises at her gym in Los Angeles two months ago. She has barely raced since. • The world’s best time at 200 meters this year doesn’t belong to Usain Bolt. Or any other runner who is known for that distance. It belongs to American LaShawn Merritt, a 400-meter specialist whose 200 time of 19.78 in April is the best of 2016. Merritt is entered in both the 200 and 400, and the men’s schedule at the Olympics is even more friendly for a 2-4 double. Michael Johnson is the only man to do that, in 1996. • Among those with good chances to make the Olympics are 18-year-old Vashti

Cunningham, the high jumper who is the daughter of former NFL star Randall Cunningham, and 17-year-old sprinter Candace Hill, who has dubbed 2016 the “Year of the Youth.” On the other end, there’s 40-year-old shot putter Adam Nelson, who came out of retirement to try to make his fourth Olympic team. Wozniacki wins appeal • Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki won her appeal for a spot in the Olympic tennis tournament, while 14-time major champion Rafael Nadal’s status is still up in the air. Nadal’s participation is contingent on either making himself available for Spain’s Davis Cup matches in July or an International Tennis Federation Olympic Committee appeal. Nadal has been dealing with an injured left wrist that forced him to withdraw from the French Open before the third round and pull out of Wimbledon altogether. Wozniacki already has been picked as Denmark’s lag-bearer, but needed to appeal for a berth in the event, saying injuries prevented her from meeting the Fed Cup requirements. Associated Press

Portugal beats Poland on penalties Ronaldo struggles but Sanches, Quaresma step up to lift Portuguese into semiinals ASSOCIATED PRESS

MARSEILLE, FRANCE • Portugal likes to leave it late at this European Championship, whether Cristiano Ronaldo is having a good game or not. The Portuguese have been even after 90 minutes in every game this tournament, a run that continued Thursday as Ronaldo and his teammates drew 1-1 with Poland after extra time, before advancing to the semifinals with a 5-3 victory on penalties. With Ronaldo again far from his best, two of the Real Madrid star’s supporting cast stepped up. Renato Sanches, Portugal’s youngest ever starter (18) at a European Championship, scored the equalizer and took man-ofthe-match honors with his smart movement and neat footwork. Then substitute Ricardo Quaresma struck the winning penalty in the shootout, five days after he scored an extra-time winner against Croatia in another late show by the Portuguese in the round of 16.

zykowski had come into the match at the Stade Velodrome as his team’s top scorer. But he had a poor game and saw his penalty saved one-handed by Rui Patricio, allowing Quaresma to finish the job with the very next kick in front of a stand packed with Polish fans. Last week, Ronaldo had lived up to his star billing by scoring twice in a 3-3 draw with Hungary, with Portugal needing second half goals in its final group game to secure a place in the last 16. On Thursday, he was back to squandering chances and misplacing his passes, leaving midfielder Sanches to step up and score Portugal’s equalizer in the first half. The teenager was his team’s main attacking threat for much of the game. “It’s wonderful for the team, for me as well for scoring the goal,” Sanches said. “People criticize us, but we don’t care because in the end we’re in the semis.” Earlier, Poland striker Robert Lewandowski had put his team in front with the quickest goal of the tournament, scoring inside two

minutes. Portugal right-back Cedric Soares misjudged a cross-field ball, allowing Kamil Grosicki to break into space on the left flank and send in a low cross for Lewandowski to convert with a firsttime shot. Poland’s lead lasted until the 33rd minute, when Sanches lit up the game. The youngster, who has just been signed by Bayern Munich, cut in from the right and passed to Nani, who sent it back immediately with a neat backheel. Sanches then unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the area that took a deflection of Grzegorz Krychowiak on its way past the outstretched Fabianski. The match might have been settled in regulation time if Ronaldo hadn’t missed a golden opportunity in the 85th minute. He beat the Polish ofside trap with a perfectly timed run, but missed the ball as he tried to convert a bouncing pass from Joao Moutinho.

First-time homebuyers: You’re closer to a down payment than you think (BPT) For many first-time buyers, saving for a down payment is the most difficult step in the home-buying process. However, it’s a common misconception you need 20 percent down to buy a home. Actually, lenders across the country offer mortgage products with very affordable down payments — some as low as 3 percent. Owning a home has always been a key component of the American Dream; in fact, many surveys show 65 percent of Millennials agree homeownership and the American Dream go hand-in-hand. Home ownership also comes with several benefits like building equity, receiving annual tax deductions and becoming more engaged with the local community. It serves as a steppingstone for long-term wealth creation, too. Historically, first-time buyers have represented 40 percent of all home purchasers, but today they make up about 30 percent, according to the National Association of Realtors. Down payment misconceptions could be to blame. “It’s safe to say that most first-time buyers aren’t aware that there are reasonable loan options available that require less money down,” says Geoff Lewis, president of RE/MAX, LLC. “Choosing an option with a smaller down payment can make it possible for potential buyers to enjoy the benefits of homeownership sooner.” Most popular low down payment options • FHA Loans — Traditionally the mortgage of choice for first-time buyers, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), offers government-insured loans with as little as 3.5 percent down. The most popular FHA loan option, the 203(b), is widely available from lenders across the country. You may qualify with a

HomeReady can offer below-market interest rates. This program also allows non-occupant borrowers to apply; for example, parents can secure this type of loan for a young adult, who’s just starting to establish credit. In addition to these mortgage options, there are also a variety of down payment assistance programs that may be available through your state or lender. Today, many loan programs allow for down-payment funds to come from third party sources, like cash gifts from relatives. Buying a home with a smaller down payment has distinct advantages, too. You’re less likely to become “house poor,” which can happen when you spend the majority of your total savings on home ownership, leaving little cash in reserve for unforeseen emergencies or credit score of just 500, although there may be limitadesirable home improvements. tions on some condo purchases.

Professional or amateur? Five qualities of an expert contractor (BPT) Are you one of the more than 3 million people planning to renovate your kitchen or bathroom this year? Or perhaps you’re adding on a room or finishing your basement. If you’re going to hire a contractor for any home remodeling project, make sure you know the difference between a great contractor and an “OK” one. In other words, learn what separates a professional from an amateur. A quick Google search on “remodeling disasters” or “renovation mistakes” returns an endless number of nightmare remodeling projects and scams, where the homeowner is left dealing with unfinished projects or unsafe conditions, and ultimately spends more money rectifying the issue. When making such a significant investment, you want to make sure you’re getting a reputable and dependable professional so your project doesn’t become another horror story. It’s important to do your research, read reviews and check references before you put your 4125 Hyundai

care about — building codes, required permits and health and safety regulations. Leaves you liable for any improper work, mistakes and in a potentially dangerous situation. Value • Professional: Communicates with you to establish an estimate and negotiate a fair contract and payment schedule. • Amateur: Underbids a project by thousands of dollars and is likely to cut corners to meet the budget or overwhelm you with costly change orders. When beginning your remodeling projects, remember professional contractors will put your interests first. They will proactively address potential issues and discuss a livability strategy with you that includes timeline, logistics, dust control and safety. With an amateur, there are no guarantees, so you’re putting yourself and your loved ones at unnecessary risk. For more information, visit livableremodeling.com.

BuildClean Dust Control System. • Amateur: Doesn’t have a proactive strategy to manage indoor air quality and jobsite dust. “Brushes it under the rug” without concern for your indoor air quality, your belongings and the shortterm and long-term health of you and your family. Ethical • Professional: Proactively addresses challenges head-on, immediately notifying you of an unexpected issue. • Amateur: Ignores problems uncovered during the project in order to keep it moving. Leaves behind things like hidden mold, leaky pipes or structural issues, putting the health and safety of your family at risk. Risk • Professional: Has a license, certifications and insurance. Obtains all necessary permits, protecting you against unsafe work and legal issues. Guarantees their work. • Amateur: Unaware of — or doesn’t 4155 Lincoln

Look for these qualities: Focus • Professional: Puts clients first and will work with you to make sure your goals are feasible and the project can get done on time and on budget. Treats customers, their families and their homes with respect. • Amateur: Focuses on finishing the job as quickly as possible, with little regard for your family’s personal needs and schedule. Livability • Professional: Well-equipped to deal with the No. 1 threat to livable remodeling — dirt and dust.

CLICK & CLACK:

Engines have gotten better in recent years Dear Car Talk: “I was reading a review of the Kia Optima (next to your esteemed column here in the paper). It mentioned that the base 2.4-liter engine produces 192 horsepower. That works out to 80 horsepower per liter. I started thinking about the car I learned to drive in — a 1956 Chevy with the Power Pack option: 4-barrel Rochester carburetor and dual exhaust. That 265-cubic-inch (4.3liter) engine was rated at 205 horsepower, which is 47 horsepower per liter. It’s a bit hard to believe that the ‘’performance’’ version of a Ray Magliozzi big mid-20th-century V-8 engine would have over 40 percent less output per liter than today’s run-of-the-mill sedan. Are engines really that much better, or has horsepower been redefined — maybe based on today’s slimmed-down horses?” — Gary Believe it, Gary. There are a number of engines that produce well over 100 horsepower per liter now. And in general, engines today produce far more power, use far less fuel and create a fraction of the pollution. Why is that? There have been a ton of incremental improvements in technology since 1956. First of all, tolerances are much tighter, so a cylinder no longer loses half of its compression through gaps around the rings (OK, ‘’half’’ may be an exaggeration). Fuels and lubrication are far better. There’s been a huge reduction in friction. Fuel injection and computerized engine management allow us to precisely meter how much fuel goes into the cylinders. In your old ‘56 Chevy, it was like they poured gasoline into the engine from a boot. And instead of two valves per cylinder, most cars now have four or even five valves per cylinder. That allows the engine to breathe better, taking in air and

sending out exhaust much more quickly and efficiently. We even have variable valve timing, which adjusts the opening and closing of the valves for maximum power and efficiency at different engine speeds. There’s coil-on-plug technology, which sends a much higher voltage spark to each cylinder, with almost no power leakage, since each cylinder gets its own, dedicated coil. And in the past few years, cars have adopted gasoline direct injection, sending the fuel-air charge into the cylinder at very high pressure, at just the right millisecond. Then there are turbos, twin-turbos, tri-turbos, quad-turbos, superchargers

and turbo-supercharger combinations. Electric turbos and electric superchargers are coming, too. All of this is why you now see full-size sedans getting plenty of power from four-cylinder engines, when they used to need six- or eight-cylinder engines. And soon we’ll be seeing more threecylinder engines. When you can easily get enough horsepower out of three cylinders, why not save the weight and add to your gas mileage? In fact, you already can get a threecylinder engine in a subcompact Ford Fiesta that produces a very respectable 123 horsepower. It’s a one-liter engine, Gary.

label provides,” Johnson says. “They’re helping with the forward movement I already have. The extra help is going to propel me.” “Grind” was produced by his longtime friend Devon Allman, who wasn’t able to produce the new album. “I was going to do the record with him, but he’s so busy,” Johnson says. “There was never time to make it happen.” For “Blues Heart Attack,” Johnson wanted something that perfectly reflected who he is as an artist. “I wanted to make a record that represented the blue-collar bluesman,” says Johnson, who also works for an outdoor advertising company. “That’s what I like to think of myself as. I work a day job outside in the heat. “This is something representing that little man.” He says the new project showcases his broad musical abilities — from traditional blues to Texas swing to rockin’ Allman Brothers-like material to straightforward rock and blues songs. He nams B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Alvin Lee as influences. “I like the diversity of the record,” he says. “Most people consider us a rockin’ blues band. That’s typically how people think of us. We’re definitely not traditional blues.” Johnson says “Blues Heart Attack” represents the past, present and future of him and his band. “I have songs I wrote over 10 years ago and songs that are relatively new and one that just came up on the spot

in the studio,” he says. “It’s a little bit of everything I had been writing.” “Summertime” is one of the older songs on the album. Johnson estimates he wrote it at least 10 years ago. The title track came about on the spot in the studio. “I worked it out until I had the lyrics down, and I think the final product is awesome,” he says. “A lot of times, some of the most creative stuf you come up with is right of the cuf.” The Jeremiah Johnson Band also features Jef Girardier (bass) and Benet Schaefer (drums). Long before charting on Billboard, while growing up in what he calls inner-city St. Louis, Johnson fancied himself a rapper — and a battle rapper at that. He was in a rock band called Detarx (X-rated spelled backward, he explains) while in high school, opening shows for Candlebox and Blind Melon. Johnson took his first real stab at the blues around 1997 with Jeremiah Johnson and the Bullfrog Band, then he relocated to Houston. “I wanted to go to a diferent city where I didn’t know anyone — where no one had a preconceived notion of me — and try to see what happened,” says Johnson, who released several albums in Houston. “I ended up doing pretty well. I won the International Blues Challenge out of Houston three years in a row.” He moved back to St. Louis in 2008. “Houston was so bad, and so hot. A lot of it had to do with the temperature. I couldn’t handle it. And I really missed my city. I learned a lot in Houston and had great ideas about what I needed to do and figured there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do back at home.” WHAT The Jeremiah Johnson Band CD Release Concert for “Blues Heart Attack” with Delta Sol Revival • WHEN 8:30 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Of Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue • HOW MUCH $20 • MORE INFO ticketfly.com

ubrie Sellers considers herself an introvert, but she is slowly coming out of her shell. That’s pretty much out of necessity. Promoting her debut album “New City Blues,” she’s appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” played the huge Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and opened shows for red-hot country singer Chris Stapleton. “When I first started performing, I was a nervous wreck,” Sellers says by phone from Denver, taking a break from doing some midday shopping. “Honestly, sometimes I felt like I was going to run of the stage.” Sellers, who is in her mid-20s, had trained to be an actress but says that kind of stage work is diferent. “When you’re acting, you feel like you’re somebody else, so it really doesn’t matter. When you’re singing and being yourself, it’s a lot harder.”

A

Now that she has a band that she’s playing with night in and night out, and “New City Blues” has been released, Sellers is feeling more comfortable. “Now some people are coming to the shows, and you can tell that they know the songs,” she says. “That’s supercool.” Sellers grew up in the music business. Her mother is the great country singer Lee Ann Womack, and her father is singer/songwriter Jason Sellers. Her stepdad is producer Frank Liddell, who has worked on albums by Womack and Miranda Lambert, among others. Sellers tapped him to produce “New City Blues.” “Obviously, music is in my blood,” Sellers says. “I always knew I was going to do something with music, but with my whole family being in the business, acting was something that was just mine. But when I was 20 or 21, I started writing songs and felt the itch to make a record.” She spent a few years

writing and — in part because her voice is strikingly like her mother’s — crafting a sound that would be her own. That sound, which she calls “garage country,” kicks as much as it twangs, featuring snarling, aggressive guitars and what Sellers calls “loud, trashy drums.” “I was always drawn to darker sounds, things with an edge and a little bit of grit, things that have a lot of emotion and a lot of drive,” she says. Her writing, she notes, takes on some darker themes as well. “I don’t tend to write when I’m happy, which I think is pretty obvious,” she says with a laugh. “My songs are not ‘poor me’ types of songs — they’re not sad. They’re high-energy, but they’re very emotional. They don’t come from a negative place, just a real place. They’re a way for me to vent.” Sellers vented plenty on “New City Blues.” She wrote or co-wrote each of the album’s 14 songs, many of them with Adam Wright, who Sellers says “really gets what I’m trying to do musically.” “A few years ago, I think I wouldn’t have said I was going to write every song on the record,” she says. “That was never really my goal. But when I started writing and really got into it, I felt like, ‘Who can tell my story better than me?’ ” WHAT Aubrie Sellers • WHEN 8 p.m. Thursday • WHERE

He’s definitely one of the best producers in the city.” Others who appear on “Fromerica,” either as a producer or artist, are Louie Boy, Yung P, Koko of Basement Beats, Timeout, King Cash, Tylan, Cheron Brash, Newman Martin, Cue of the Domino Efect, Sal Calhoun and Trifeckta. “Fromerica” is the first full, widely distributed solo album release from Dean after releasing mixtapes and collaborative eforts, such as 2014’s “Bruce Vs Bane,” a match-up between Bo Dean and fellow rapper T Dubb O.

Sharon McConnellDickerson’s “A Cast of Blues” features masks made of blues musicians.

Facing the music Sharon McConnell-Dickerson’s exhibition of masks of noted blues musicians comes to the National Blues Museum BY NOAH JODICE / NJODICE@POST-DISPATCH.COM

n the Roman empire, portrait sculptures were often used to honor one’s family history. Busts of marble or bronze, depicting legendary and important figures, were displayed in a family shrine, evidence of a direct lineage to power or influence within the community. Sharon McConnell-Dickerson’s series, “A Cast of Blues,” is not out of line with that tradition. The exhibit, which opens Saturday at the National Blues Museum, features masks of blues musicians, made using a sculptural technique called lifecasting that directly

captures a subject by making a plaster cast of his or her face. Yet where the Romans enshrined political and military greats, McConnell-Dickerson’s work captures the likenesses of guitar players and singers — men and women who governed the soul and conquered the heart with their music. Her subjects run the gamut from the internationally famous, such as Bo Diddley, Taj Mahal and Odetta, to legends of the Mississippi Delta, like T-Model Ford. McConnell-Dickerson knows many of these musicians well. She lives in Como, Miss., part of the Delta region

and one of the earliest homes of the blues. The sculptures, much like the blues music itself, come from a place of both artistry and loss. At the age of 27, McConnell-Dickerson started going blind. She left her work as a flight attendant and chef, moving to New Mexico to study art. It was there and in Paris that she developed her craft and learned the lifecasting method. Though each mask is of a particular face, the materials McConnell-Dickerson uses create a uniformity among the exhibit. Jacqueline Dace, the National Blues Museum’s director of internal afairs, says that the material choice, along with way the masks are displayed, are part of what makes McConnell-Dickerson’s work so powerful. The exhibit places the well-known and the local legends on the same level. “(McConnell-Dickerson) is removing that barrier, that classification that we impose upon these artists that are not necessarily imposed upon them in the juke joints of the Delta or in the communities of the Delta,” Dace says. Each one of these artists, Dace says, has the power to conjure emotion and tug at the heart, whatever their instrument may be. Like those ancient Roman portraits, these sculptures tell histories, too. The musicians’ faces are well-lined, scarred and weathered. Most of all, Dace says,

the exhibit adds to how the Blues Museum can tell the story of the blues. These aren’t just artifacts of the past. “You’re actually documenting the human face form,” Dace says. “It’s sort of like if you were to add that to an oral history, an interview, you’ll have a whole diferent element to this person that continues to exist in a diferent form.” “A Cast of Blues” has previously been exhibited in St. Louis at the Griot Museum, but Dace says that she’s excited to have it back in the city, especially given the context that the National Blues Museum can provide with its other exhibits. Additionally, the museum’s large gallery space will allow all of McConnell-Dickerson’s 40 masks, as well as a bronze casting of musician Johnny Winter’s hands, to be on full display. For Dace, “A Cast of Blues” presents a unique set of curation requirements. All the masks are available to be touched by visitors so that they can feel the musician’s face in the same way that McConnell-Dickerson did when she was casting the mask. “Myself, as a trained curator, bristles at the fact that you’re touching an artifact,” Dace jokes. The exhibit will also be completely accessible for those who are disabled, allowing anyone to experience the musicians, and their history, firsthand. Dace says that that accessibility excites her, despite the usual museum taboos. “I haven’t touched an artifact in years without gloved hands, you know, so I’m looking forward to be able to listen to (McConnell-Dickerson) and also get a feel for it myself,” Dace says.

he Veiled Prophet Parade already calls itself “America’s Biggest Birthday Parade.” But this year, the parade’s 134th, it makes a bigger claim to that title, as it expands its television syndication and focuses on more national themes. Over the past few years, the parade, which is organized by the Veiled Prophet Organization, has been increasing the number of television markets in which it is available. Last year, viewers could catch the parade in several nonlocal markets, including Columbia, Mo., and Detroit. Now, says parade Grand Marshal Jim Hetlage, the VP Parade will be available in 15 states and more than 13.5 million households. St. Louis viewers can see the broadcast on KMOV (Channel 4). “We’re from San Diego to South Carolina; we’re from Dallas up to Detroit,” Hetlage says. “So we really believe we’re achieving a national broadcast for America’s Biggest Birthday Parade.” That birthday parade will include the usual standbys, including floats, balloons and marching bands. The floats celebrate the parade’s theme “Hats of to heroes,” which the Veiled Prophet organization calls “a tribute to Americans from all walks of life whose contributions make them heroes in their communities.” The VP Parade makes its return to downtown after two years in Forest Park. Additionally, marching bands will compete for a $10,000 prize in the Liberty Drum Challenge. Unique to this year’s parade will be the U.S. Army Golden Knights, an elite aerial demonstration team, which will parachute down holding an American flag during the singing of the national anthem. The parachute demonstration, along with the general theme, is meant to help take the parade from a local, St. Louis tradition to a national one. In order to facilitate a national broadcast, the parade will proceed through a location at the front of Union Station. “Each of the floats, giant balloons, marching bands will walk into our parade broadcast area, and the performance floats will do their performance,” Hetlage says. The parade steps of at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and proceeds on Market Street from Seventh Street to 20th Street.

Lee Brice

Lee Brice gets reflective with his new music BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / POST-DISPATCH

ountry star Lee Brice is between albums now, but he’s deep into the process of recording his fourth release, the follow-up to “I Don’t Dance” (2014). Brice has either written or found all the songs he’ll use on his next album, though “it’s not done until it’s done,” he says. “So now instead of gathering songs, I’m whittling it down to what’s going on the record.” Brice, known for country hits such as “Love Like Crazy,” “A Woman Like You,” “I Drive Your Truck” and “Drinking Class,” is feeling out the new record, figuring out what makes the cut and what gets axed. He performs Saturday at Fair St. Louis. “There’s just too many songs at

the end of the day to all go on the record,” he says. “With me, that’s the hardest thing about writing a record: picking the songs that best represent what’s going on now.” He found one “outside” song he didn’t write himself, and the rest of the songs are self-penned. “I have a history of recording outside songs, and I love that. Some of the biggest songs I have I didn’t write, but I’m lucky to have. But my passion is writing songs,” says Brice, who has been writing since he was 10 and co-writing in Nashville, Tenn., since he was 21. Sometimes the songs pour out of him naturally; other times the process is more painstaking. “It’s always a diferent animal,” Brice says. “Some days you really gotta fight for them — really dig deep. That’s the hardest part.” Now, at age 37, Brice says he’s able to write about appreciating life and his family.

“It’s a reflective record, reflecting on growing up, my feelings on what’s going on today,” he says. “It’s a very honest record about how I think and the blessings I’ve had so far.” With “what’s going on today,” Brice is referring to the state of country music and the debate over what’s country and what’s not. “It’s always ever-changing,” he says of the genre. “Folks always say, ‘It’s not country,’ ‘It’s not this,’ ‘It’s not that.’ I say it’s just music. If you wanna make a pop record, make a pop record. If you wanna make a country record, make a country record.” The new album will feature a mixture of tempos, including ballads, his favorite. But he’ll be sure to have heavier tempo songs in the set because he knows that’s what his fans want in concert. He also promises the music will be organic, real and live, with lots of soul. “It’s really country compared to my last record,” he says. “My last record was very much all over the spectrum sonically. I was really spreading my wings as a producer and letting the songs be what they should be. “This album is more of a unit. There’s one single thread on the record this time.” One song that may or may not make the cut is “A Little More Love,” his current duet with fellow country star Jerrod Niemann. “I heard it and loved it and thought of Jerrod. He’s one of my best friends, and I played it for him and he loved it. We’d always wanted to record together.” Brice’s last St. Louis appearance was a sold-out 2014 concert at Ballpark Village, which he remembers fondly. “We always have a ball there in St. Louis,” he says. “There’s a major country music fan base there. There’s a bunch of folk who really get the music. We’ve had shows in the streets and shows in the clubs in St. Louis, and every time it’s mind-blowing. “This is going to be an awesome celebration weekend. I have a philosophy where I like to leave it all on the stage.” WHAT Lee Brice at Fair St. Louis • WHEN 8:45 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Budweiser Stage, Art Hill, Forest Park • HOW MUCH Free • MORE INFO fairsaintlouis.org

Rocker Sammy Hagar breaks down his biggest hits

Sammy Hagar

BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

S

ammy Hagar is ready to rock, as only he can, with his headlining set Sunday night at Fair St. Louis. Hagar, a longtime favorite of St. Louis audiences, says he has wanted to do a free show here for about a decade. “I’m coming back for everyone who believed in me in St. Louis back in the old days — the media, all those fans, that’s what I’m coming back for,” says Hagar, performing Sunday as Sammy Hagar and the Circle with Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson. “My sleeves are rolled up.” He’s promising a set list tailor-made to please any “Midwest rock fanatic,” with songs from his solo career, Van Halen, Montrose, Chickenfoot and even Led Zeppelin. “There’s no dogs in there — no B-songs.” In an interview this week, Hagar rifed on some of his songs over the decades:

P H O T O : A S S O C I AT E D P R E S S

‘BIG FOOT’ CHICKENFOOT, 2011 “That’s one of those songs that wrote itself. It could have been on the irst Montrose album, any Van Halen album, any of my albums, and it ended up on one of the last gold records I had with Chickenfoot. It’s a classic rif, a classic beat and the lyrics came lying out of me. I don’t think I ever wrote them down. It was a classic.” ‘DREAMS’ VAN HALEN, 1986 “I get choked up when I sing it. The Van Halen version is so high and intense. I rewrote it acoustically. Now the lyrics loat instead of my trying to scream something that is so important. Trying to scream it takes away from the emotion. It’s one of the few songs where the rearranged version of it might be better.” ‘HEAVY METAL’ SAMMY HAGAR, 1981 “I just listened to that song. I wanted to

stltoday.com/go

refresh my guitar solo. I wrote that song for the movie (of the same name), and it’s so damn fast and intense, and I’m singing like I’m on helium. It’s the most high-energy anybody can be on record.” ‘I CAN’T DRIVE 55’ SAMMY HAGAR, 1984 “People think, ‘What a great gimmick that was,’ but it wasn’t a great gimmick. I got pulled over. All that (stuf) happened. I came back from vacation, I had been out of the country, and they changed the speed limit on me. It encouraged the protest in me.” ‘MAS TEQUILA’ SAMMY HAGAR AND THE WABORITAS, 1999

“It’s the ultimate party song. I wrote it in Cabo. ... I got inspired at the same time my tequila was being launched. That was pure synchronicity and timing. That will be in my repertoire for the rest of my life.” ‘POUNDCAKE’ VAN HALEN, 1991 “To me, it’s one of the classic tongue-incheek, double-meaning metaphor songs — one of the best I’ve ever written.” ‘RIGHT NOW’ VAN HALEN, 1992 “I think it was the irst time in Van

Halen that everyone was trying to write something besides just party tunes. When I walked into Van Halen, I was that rock ’n’ roll party guy. This was the irst serious song we wrote besides love songs. It’s deeper than your average ‘Poundcake,’ and it’s another song I’ll sing for the rest of my life.” ‘ROCK CANDY’ MONTROSE, 1973 “That’s another classic, like ‘Big Foot.’ That song never gets old. Every drummer I’ve ever played with ... I ask them if they wanna jam, they say yes, and what do you wanna rock to, and they say ‘Rock Candy.’ That drum beat is amazing. There are very few drum beats that stand the test of time, and this is deinitely one of them.” ‘SEXY LITTLE THING’ CHICKENFOOT, 2009 “It’s about a woman’s anatomy, the thing most talked about about a woman. To me, that’s a sexy song. I love that song. Brian May of Queen said it’s his most favorite song in the world.” ‘THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO ROCK’ SAMMY HAGAR, 1981

“That’s another protest song. When I wrote it in ’81, everyone was trying to get a hit

on Top 40 radio. I was trying to get a song played on a radio station in San Francisco that was called ‘The Rock of the Bay.’ I was trying to get ‘I’ve Done Everything for You’ on the radio and was told it was too heavy. It was a protest song to a rock station that wouldn’t play my song.” ‘WHEN IT’S LOVE’ VAN HALEN, 1988 “I think it’s one of the best love songs we’ve ever written in Van Halen with one of the most beautiful choruses on the planet. It has great lyrics, a great melody and a great groove.” ‘WHY CAN’T THIS BE LOVE’ VAN HALEN, 1986

“It was the beginning of a new era for me. That was the irst song you heard from us when I joined Van Halen. When you hear the rif at the beginning of the song, you don’t have to hear the rest of the song before you say, ‘Oh, this is cool.’ It’s one of those songs that has so much identity.” WHAT Sammy Hagar and the Circle with Michael

Cowboy Mouth

Cowboy Mouth gives old songs a new spin, with fresh material thrown in BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

T

hese days, Cowboy Mouth is about freshening itself up. The roots-rock band from New Orleans is a St. Louis favorite; just ask any local fan about the song “Whatcha Gonna Do.” The group has a new album, “The Name of the Band Is ...,” a careerspanning set that also includes new material. The album will be released July 15 and includes re-recordings of the band’s classic material, such as “Jenny Says,” “Easy,” “Love of My Life” and “Tell the Girl You’re Sorry.” The new songs are “Broken Up,” “Bad Men” and “These Days.” Singer-drummer Fred LeBlanc says he typically doesn’t like to look at the past. Instead, he’s the one who’s “go, go, go; move, move, move — that’s more my nature. You get caught up with what you’re doing in the present time. We didn’t want to become an oldies act, not that there’s anything wrong with that. “But it’s not where I am in life. But we have a really good history and a great catalog, so why not?”

18

In putting together the album, LeBlanc noticed he was having a diicult time finding studio versions of top Cowboy Mouth songs that moved him. For example, he says the band’s most popular song is a live version of “Jenny Says,” as opposed to the studio version found on the band’s album “Word of Mouth” (1992) and again on “Are You With Me?” (1996). “There’s the live version from a show we did in New Orleans that we don’t own, that’s not on an album, and there’s the studio version we were never really happy with,” he says. “It’s very good, but it’s just not kicking ass. The studio version didn’t capture that umph. It’s the live version that set the world ablaze. The live version of ‘Jenny’ has more roar.” So the band’s way to remedy this was not to record a live album but to re-record the classics. “We just wanted to go into the studio and see what happens,” he says. “The songs themselves are not dated, though the recording techniques at the time are dated. I wanted a fresher

approach to a powerful collection of songs. And it came out really good. We have stronger versions of all the songs we’re known for, all the quote-unquote hit songs. And we had fun playing the older songs again. This was made true by the current lineup of the band, which LeBlanc feels has a special pop to it. “This version of the band is really powerful,” he says. “The band is so kicking right now,” he says. “But we’re lucky to always have great versions of the band.” In addition to fellow founding guitarist John Thomas Griith, the band also includes bassist Brian Broussard and guitarist Matt Jones. “Brian is a great presence onstage,” LeBlanc says. “He plays every song like it’s AC/ DC. And Matt adds a real musical dexterity. Both of them with their abilities and focus and approach have enabled us to expand our musical palate.” He believes this new record sounds better than earlier recordings, though it cost only $10,000 to make. “It’s easier now to get great-sounding recordings for less money and hassle,” he says. “It seemed to make sense, and we had new songs we wanted to try.” The new songs showcase LeBlanc writing about “what’s going on in life.” “A lot of my songs are like my diaries with a hook,” he says.

Q&A

Here Come the Mummies unwrap new funk Here Come the Mummies are among the highlights of a funk-filled final day at Fair St. Louis, along with Parliament-Funkadelic, Dirty Muggs and rapper Flo Rida. You can’t miss Here Come the Mummies: It’ll be the act totally wrapped up in mummy attire. The band performs under wraps to keep their identities secret. (The group reportedly includes recognizable names and Grammy winners.) In an email interview (they don’t do live interviews), Cass Mummy, Eddie Mummy and KW Tut dictated responses to Spazzy Mummy.

• Can you talk about the new concert video “MMXV”? It is an hourlong special featuring our sold-out Halloween performance at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, which was wonderfully insane. And just to add some spice, we peppered it with highlights of our favorite year thus far, 2015 AD. It is a fun ride, and well worth the purchase price of $5. Go to herecomethemummies. com and mash the button that says “get MMXV now.” • Describe the new song/ video “Read My Lips.” That’s a pretty groovy little track which describes strictly nonverbal communication at its best. As to the video, we wanted to let folks dig on a new tune before the record was even finished. • What can you say about the upcoming album “Underground,” and how did the album come together? We recorded it on a little thing called two-inch magnetic tape. Maybe you’ve even heard of it. It ofers up all kinds of richness we have been

seeking and limitations which fuel artistic spontaneity. There are moments that sound like a phone book tearing itself in half right inside your skull. It is edgy, ragged, soulful, transporting, magical and even sensitive. It percolates and it undulates. It’ll make you shake. We had a lot of fun making it. We experimented with solid-gold signalchains, a Mu-tron, a futon and even strings. • When will “Underground” be released? It is mastered as of this very day and will be mere weeks in manufacturing. So, real, real soon. • How much will the band play from “Underground” at Fair St. Louis? We have worked three songs of “Underground” into the set as of late. We hope to strike the right balance between new material and fan favorites … but, should we leave the whole city insatiable for more. Don’t worry; we’ll be back real soon for seconds. • The group plays in St. Louis regularly. What can you say about your St. Louis fanbase? We couldn’t love STL more, baby. You all respond in a big way to what we are laying down, and we love that, of course.

We can’t wait to rock Forest Park, either. That place is a treasure. • How did the whole mummy concept come about? Cursed by an angry daddy (guess why) — who happened to be the ultimate in a long line of big-time pharaohs, dig? Now we wander the earth in search of the rif that may allow our spirits to finally rest. But don’t worry for us. We settle down with a nice girl most every night. • Is it true there are several Grammy Award winners in the group? Well, we’d be lying if we said there was no connection. More than that (at present at least) we cannot divulge. • Does the concept present any challenges? Well, being half-dead and in possession mainly of fleshjerky down to your last toe-knuckle doesn’t make playing funk and jumping around easy. But we love it, and that goes a long way. • Will there come a point when all the bandages come of? We hope not, because those things are baked-on, dig? They’d pull the meat right of our crumbling, porous bones. BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON WHAT Here Come the Mummies at Fair St. Louis • WHEN 4:40 p.m. Monday • WHERE

Distracted Driving: A Timeline

For many drivers across oss the nation, 2009 was a turning point in the battle esident Barack Obama issued his against distracted driving. That’s when President irst executive order on the matter. His action led to a snowball effect in terms of various federal agencies enacting their own laws on distracted driving, eventually leading to major change in many state laws as well. e is how According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, here the president and federal agencies have impacted the behavior. • On September 30, 2009, President Obama issued an executive order der prohibiting federal employees from texting while driving on government business or while using government equipment; • On September 17, 2010, the Federal Railroad Administration banned cell phone and electronic device use of employees on the job; • On October 27, 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety cial vehicle drivers Administration enacted a ban that prohibits commercial from texting while driving; and • In 2011, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration banned cial drivers and drivers carrying all hand-held cell phone use by commercial hazardous materials. States Follow Suit States irst began to get involved in the issue in 2001 when New York instituted the irst ban on using hand-held cell phones while driving. In 2007, Washington became the irst state to enact an all-driver ban on texting. A new crop of studies were conducted in the early 2000s as cell phone usage reached new highs across the United States. These efforts helped bring attention to the matter and accelerated action at the federal and state levels. One of the most inluential studies, according to the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, was the 2006 initiative by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. This study revealed that drivers engaging in visually and or manually complex tasks have a three times higher near-crash or crash risk than drivers who are attentive. Other indings from this study included the risk of a crash or near-crash event being: • 2.8 times higher when dialing a cell phone; • 1.4 times higher when using or reaching for an electronic device; and • 1.3 times higher when talking or listening to a cell phone. ¤

PREVENTABLE RISK! Texting while driving involves all three types of distracted driving: cognitive, manual, and visual impairment – in all three instances every part of you is unfocused on the road Texting while driving is six times more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. Texting while driving is leading cause of death among teen drivers According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, distracted driving caused over 1.6 million accidents in the US in 2012.

TEXTING AND DRIVING With some state laws focusing on handheld bans and carmakers putting hands-free technology in vehicles, it’s no wonder people are confused. However, while many drivers honestly believe they are making the safe choice by using a hands-free device, it’s far from the truth. Your brain remains distracted by the conversation rather than focused on the road ahead. Operating A motor vehicle requires your complete attention at all times.

Forms of Distraction ✔ Visual: taking your eyes off the road; ✔ Manual: taking your hands off the wheel; and ✔ Cognitive: taking your mind off of driving.

Stage

Texting while driving makes you 23 times more likely to get in a car accident than a non-distracted driver. The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found the minimal amount of time your attention is taken away from the road while texting and driving is 5 seconds. A crash usually happens within an average of 3 seconds of a driver being distracted. Information provided by NHTSA.gov and Distraction.gov

Phone conversations S

ometimes, the statistics say it all. According to a AAA study, drivers talking on cell phones are four times more likely to be involved in a vehicle crash than drivers who are not distracted. A University of Utah study showed talking on a cell phone has a greater effect on reaction time than having a blood alcohol level of the legal limit of .08. But why is talking on your phone while driving such a dangerous activity? The answer is a complicated one comprised of issues both psychological and physical.

The dangers Two types of cell phone behavior typically lead to unsafe driving conditions and it may surprise you 22

which one can have a greater impact on your driving. These classifications of cell phone usage are: • Handling the phone, which includes dialing, answering, text messaging and using it for GPS navigation. If your hands are on your phone, it means they aren’t on the wheel. • Conversations, which can be just as dangerous, as studies have shown your mental commitment to a phone call is demanding, even if you may not realize it. Emotional engagement The National Safety Council reports in simulated driving tests, drivers who were asked to carry on a cell phone conversation were so distracted they went unaware of some traffic signals.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 07.01.16-07.07.16

The study compared phone conversations to other related activities such as listening to audio books and news radio, stating these types of activities are less emotionally engaging, hence safer to do while driving. The more emotionally engaged the subject, the study found, the less attentive he or she was to safety signals. Digging a little deeper, the results were unaffected by whether the subject manually held the phone or if the mechanism was hands free. This means even if you’re following the law by using a hands-free device, you may still find yourself in a situation where you’re unable to react quickly enough to a dangerous situation. stltoday.com/go

PHOTOS: HANDOUTS

New St. Louis rapper GnArly WoRld (Darryl Merriweather) is about to show the world what he’s all about. He signed to Epic Records, he just released a single featuring Flo Rida called “H.I.T.H.” (he’ll be featured during Flo Rida’s Fair St. Louis set Monday) and he’s about to drop his debut EP full of radio-ready jams. Contenders for the EP include “She Bout the Money,” “Have You Ever,” “Hurt Me Love Me,” “Run It Up,” “Come Over” and “Love Em No Mo.” The 22-year-old’s motto: “Live. Love. Life.”

name. It’s OK to hit the stores with that name. People are gonna be afraid of Lil 4. • What was your initial reaction to the Flo Rida opportunity? That it was a good move. It’s big. He’s still popping. It’s his energy, the feel of his music. At the same time, I told my guys and they were more happy than me. They ask me why I’m not more excited yet. It hasn’t hit me yet. I’m still working. I still have many more artists to work with. • Did you consider yourself a Flo Rida fan before the collaboration? I consider myself a supporter. I like his movement. • Can you preview your Fair St. Louis moment? It’s gonna be amazing. I’m a party guy, and he’s a party guy. He can’t keep up with me. It’s the first time performing it live with him. • Are you at all nervous about Fair St. Louis? No. The more people who are there, the more you’re going to get out of me. BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON

Performingwise he’s crazy. (Rapper) Desiigner, people don’t like him because they think he sounds like Future, but look where he’s at. He did what a lot of people couldn’t do. But I don’t listen to just one type of music. I listen to all the genres though some country I can’t get with. • How did you get into rap music professionally? I got in trouble in high school and got put out, then home-schooled. I had to change things. I felt I let a lot of people down. • Why did you change your stage name from Lil 4 to GnArly WoRld?

Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill in “The BFG”

Steven Spielberg’s ‘he BFG,’ based on a book by Roald Dahl, casts a unique and often mesmerizing spell ★★★ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

S

ophie (Ruby Barnhill) is an inquisitive girl who lives in a London orphanage. Long after she’s supposed to be asleep, she prowls the premises with only a cat for company. And even when she finally goes to bed, she stays up reading — and occasionally looks out a window that she’s been cautioned not to.

26

One night, her gaze falls on something it shouldn’t have: a remarkably thin and incredibly tall figure (Mark Rylance) who catches her looking at him and whisks her away from the orphanage. The next thing Sophie knows, she’s in a faraway land from which she may never return — a land of giants. But it turns out that, as giants go, her captor is relatively small. And un-

like his peers, he doesn’t make a habit of eating children. He’s a big friendly giant, and she finds herself warming to his company. In a way, they’re both misfits, and his vocabulary consists of odd-sounding words that make their own kind of sense. Unfortunately, their friendship is constantly threatened by the possibility of one of his neighbors swallowing her. Something has to be done about them — and it just may require the intervention of Buckingham Palace. Based on the book by Roald Dahl, “The BFG” finds director Steven Spielberg working from a screenplay by Melissa Mathison — who penned the great “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982). The

new film serves as a tribute to Mathison, who died last year at age 65. If “The BFG” is unlikely to become a cultural phenomenon of the magnitude of “E.T.,” it’s a film that casts a unique and often mesmerizing spell. But it’s also a bit too talky, particularly in the early going, and Spielberg lets numerous opportunities for humor slip by. But in a performance that couldn’t be more diferent than his turn as a Soviet undercover agent in Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” Rylance makes us believe that giants exist.

ank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a desert island, and he’s reached the point where he just can’t take it anymore — the loneliness, the hopelessness, the meaninglessness. Suicide strikes him as the only solution, and he’s about to take that irrevocable step into the unknown when something unexpected happens. A body washes up on the shore. An annoyingly flatulent body that Hank comes to know as Manny (Daniel Radclife), who’s no longer alive but not exactly dead. And who, despite being limited in his ability to move, has quite a lot to say about life, what

it means and why it’s not to be taken for granted. As much as Hank appreciates Manny’s value as a conversationalist, he also comes to realize that his new friend’s body parts can be useful survival tools. And indeed, a certain component of Manny’s anatomy proves to be an ideal compass. Of course, Hank may be hallucinating. His friendship with Manny just might be an illusion — a way of keeping his wits about him until he can return to civilization. And Hank has never had a lot of friends, so an imaginary one may not be such a bad thing. “Swiss Army Man”

sets a new standard for mind-boggling weirdness. And indeed, it probably has a bright future on the midnight-movie circuit, if only as the film in which the former Harry Potter really throws himself into the role of a dead guy. Yet there’s something about its blend of the gross and the philosophical that’s hard to shake. Writer-directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert — known as the Daniels — elicit terrific performances from Dano and Radclife, who prove to be a delightful comic duo. And Mary Elizabeth Winstead is perfect in a small but pivotal role. If you’ve been looking for a film that puts a daringly surreal spin on “Cast Away,” you’ll be in paradise.

‘The Purge: Election Year’ is the craziest Purge yet ★★★½ BY KATIE WALSH / TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

he low-budget home-invasion horror hit of 2013, “The Purge,” found its breakout star in the Purge itself: an annual 12-hour bloodbath of governmentsanctioned mayhem. In this dystopian near-future, the New Founding Fathers of America have instituted the contained lawlessness in order to keep crime, and the population, in check. The 2014 sequel, “The Purge: Anarchy,” liberated audiences from the confines of a single home and let loose into the streets of murderous chaos. That film’s breakout star, the brooding Frank Grillo, an American version of a taciturn Jason Statham tough-guy type, is a Purge angel of sorts. His character, Leo, is back in “The Purge: Election Year,” which is the biggest, baddest Purge so far. Writer/director James

Samuel L. Jackson (left) and Alexander Skarsgård in “The Legend of Tarzan”

DeMonaco has written and directed all three films, maintaining a consistency of tone and style, including bits of humor and cartoonish weirdness among the grim, dark and terrifying possibilities. The film’s distributors have utilized pitchperfect marketing for our own current rocky election year (a sticker reading “I Purged”; the tagline “Keep America Great”), and the film itself reflects the historic nomination of Hillary Clinton with a blonde upstart presidential candidate, Sen. Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), fighting against the NFFA establishment. She’s running on an anti-Purge platform, arguing that it unjustly wipes out the lower-class population, who are unable to aford the secure fortresses of the rich, while the NRA and insurance companies

reap the profits. It seems so terrifyingly possible. Leo now serves as Charlie’s protective Secret Service agent and is a Purge angel once again when they find themselves outside on Purge Night, pursued by neo-Nazi special forces. There are several breakout stars alongside Leo in “Election Year”: veteran actor Mykelti Williamson as Joe, a warm deli owner, and Betty Gabriel as a no-nonsense reformed purger by the nickname of “Pequena Muerte” (Little Death). The wacko Halloweenon-steroids style of the trilogy is amplified in “Election Year.” Some of the set pieces seem simply provocative, rushing by in morbid vignettes. These films are overtly political, “Election Year” even more so. The message here about racial and economic inequality is relevant and accessible but not necessarily revelatory.

‘The Legend of Tarzan’ is ambitious but disappointing ★★ BY COLIN COVERT / STAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS)

top me if you’ve seen this one before. After umpteen onscreen appearances, Tarzan is back. Disappointing but ambitious, “The Legend of Tarzan” uses Edgar Rice Burroughs’ source material selectively rather than slavishly. Director David Yates, who gave us four workmanlike chapters in the “Harry Potter” cycle, reboots the iconic king of the jungle through a narrative time portal. He introduces Lord Greystoke to viewers years after his departure from the wild. He is a refined British adult wearing 1880s Victorian finery and sipping his tea with a properly extended pinkie finger. Alexander Skarsgård plays the part with understatement suiting a man living far from his home (central Africa) and family (a tribe of apes that raised him

S

through infancy when his explorer parents died). A civilized gent who speaks with adjectives and verbs, he is recruited by Her Majesty’s government to investigate troubling developments in the Belgian Congo. The contemptible King Leopold II intends to strip his possession of every diamond and ivory tusk at whatever cost of local life that may require. Yates seems to be making this era’s Tarzan a dark hybrid of art and realistic truth about racism and xenophobia. It’s a valiant struggle, but it feels calculated rather than organic and entertaining. Skarsgård, who spends a lot of time abandoning shirts, swings on African vines like SpiderMan whipping across Manhattan. He pursues his spy mission with the aid of his gorgeous

squeeze-turned-spouse Jane (Margot Robbie). They are accompanied by a Civil War veteran from the United States, George Washington Williams. In that role, Samuel L. Jackson again proves his ability to zing the dreariest lines. The film reunites Jackson with frequent co-star Christoph Waltz, playing the central baddie as a shy, nerdy character. When it’s not laboring clunkily to generate excitement, the film delivers the longest, most lingering full-face closeups ever collected in an action film. Certainly it’s good to observe a Titianhaired beauty like Robbie and a brooding performer like Waltz at length. It’s better than keeping our focus on the non-Africanlooking locations, but it makes the focus of the film fade into the background. Like much in the movie, it’s a challenging idea that’s innovative in an imperfect way. WHAT “The Legend of Tarzan” • RUN TIME 1:50 • RATING PG-13 • CONTENT Sequences of action and violence, some sensuality and brief rude dialogue

‘Les Cowboys’ follows the quest for a missing girl ★★★½ BY CHRISTOPHER KOMPANEK / SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON POST

hat ignites someone to abandon her family and root out all traces of her culture and society? That question pulses through Thomas Bidegain’s slow-burning homage to “The Searchers.” As in John Ford’s classic Western, the need of this film’s protagonist to rescue a missing woman is all consuming. Frenchman Alain (played with searing intensity by François Damiens) has a romanticized afection for the cowboys of the American West. No sooner has he been ushered onto the stage at his small town’s hootenanny to sing “Tennessee Waltz” — the mournful lament of a

P H O T O S : C O H E N M E D I A G R O U P ( “ L E S C O W B O Y S ) ; R O A D S I D E AT T R A C T I O N S ( “ T R A I T O R ” )

lover stolen away — than he discovers that his own daughter has vanished. Learning that the teenager (Iliana Zabeth) has eloped with her Muslim boyfriend (Mounir Margoum) and has decided to live under Islamic law only quickens Alain’s resolve. His search morphs into a seemingly endless quest that’s ultimately passed down to his son, Kid (Finnegan Oldfield). What does it mean to search for someone who doesn’t want to be found? Bidegain keeps the answer poignantly elusive while shining an unforgiving light on the weight that bears down on a soul

in perpetual journey. For Alain and Kid, what’s been lost is not just a daughter and sister but all tangible ties to what rooted that person in society. In Pakistan, Kid crosses paths with a rogue hostage negotiator from America (played with ragged wisdom by John C. Reilly). “There’s no room for people like us,” the American says, explaining his inability to return home as the two men gaze into a vast, mountainous landscape. Bidegain and cinematographer Arnaud Potier speak multitudes with wide-angle, slowpanning shots that immerse us in a post-9/11 quagmire that’s never less than utterly personal.

‘Our Kind of Traitor,’ starring Ewan McGregor, is underwhelming ★★½ BY MICHAEL PHILLIPS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE

any aspects of “Our Kind of Traitor” mark it, indelibly, as John le Carré material: moody, ruminative, one foot in the movies, one foot in the real world. Early on there’s an abrupt love scene between Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris that, by narrative design, ends before it gets going. Harris plays Gail, a London barrister married to McGregor’s character, Perry, a literature and poetry instructor. The marriage is on rocky ground; we hear of the husband’s afair with a student. Perry and Gail are vacationing in Marrakech (it was Antigua in le Carré’s 2010 novel), and there they meet Dima, a gregarious but lethal Russian moneylaunderer for the Russian mafia, played by Stellan Skarsgård, dining out on

M

a role originally meant for Mads Mikkelsen. (For a time Ralph Fiennes was scheduled to play the McGregor role.) A bearlike mobster who loves his family, Dima is trying to save his skin and get his wife and children to England. After a night of Moroccan debauchery, Perry agrees to sneak a flash drive through customs for Dima and to deliver incriminating information to the hands of British intelligence. Damian Lewis plays the MI6 point man, smiling even when being threatened. It’s one of the strengths of le Carré’s story, adapted for the screen by Hossein Amini, that Perry never knows quite how much to trust his own handler in this risky bit of international brinkmanship. The plot proceeds from Morocco to London to Paris and then, ultimately,

to a bloody standof in the French Alps. Typical of le Carré, there’s a refreshing de-emphasis on casually glorifying gun violence in “Our Kind of Traitor.” Susanna White’s proficient, moderately engaging film is slick and creamy, more so than the usual le Carré afair. I don’t think the “look” is quite right for the story. Nor is the dreamy, wandering score by Marcelo Zarvos, which adds the blandest sort of ambient “tension music” to whatever’s going on. McGregor struggles to make Perry credible in his credulousness; Harris, far better, but doesn’t have enough to do; Skarsgård is fun. But are we at a point now, in America especially, with our psychotic gun problem and murder rate, that we don’t have the patience for a thriller that doesn’t wipe out a new set of disposable characters in every other scene?

Notice what both meals have in common? Yup. Salmon. The RWSI (Restaurant Week Salmon Index) of this edition of Clayton Restaurant Week is a whopping 73.33, with 11 of 15 restaurants serving salmon in one form or another. The January edition of Clayton Restaurant Week featured an RWSI of 64.28, which finally broke me, and I boycotted my usual practice of recommending four or five restaurantweek menus that seem, if not especially The raw bar at 801 Fish in Clayton appealing, then at least relatively appealing as far as restaurant-week menus go. In spite of the truly appalling RWSI of Clayton Restaurant Week (Summer Our critic helps you get more bang for your Version) — and, yes, small sample Clayton Restaurant Week buck size, I know — I figure the $35 option is interesting enough that it’s worth BY IAN FROEB / RESTAURANT CRITIC / IFROEB@POST-DISPATCH.COM giving the recommendations another go. exactly that: exceptions. he summer edition of Though I’ve eaten at all five of these This year, participating restaurants Clayton Restaurant restaurants, some as recently as this can ofer diners a three-course dinWeek is set for July 11-17. year, I can’t of course guarantee a terner at one or both of two prices, $25 or The event will feature rific experience.

menu, but you can choose among four appetizers and four entrees, the latter of which includes a wood-grilled pork chop and, for a $5 supplement, filet mignon. More importantly, Clayton Restaurant Week gives you a reason to visit Cardwell’s in Clayton once more before it closes its doors this fall. The Libertine ($25) • The Libertine, a two-time member of my STL 100 (stltoday.com/stl100), doesn’t ofer many choices on its $25 menu, but those it does ofer sure sound good. These include poutine and the Duck & Pie, described as “rosemary-honeysoaked fried duck legs (with) duck confit, aged cheddar cheese (and) savory Provençal spring pie.” If the prix-fixe choices don’t satisfy you, the menu’s other dishes are available for varying supplements. Remy’s Kitchen & Wine Bar ($25) • Another two-year member of my STL 100 and a Clayton institution, Remy’s ofers multiple dishes from its regular menu of Mediterranean in each category. Nothing flashy; just a place where you can rarely go wrong. The Wheelhouse ($25) • I liked the Wheelhouse when I reviewed it three years ago, and I include it here because it seems like the sort of restaurant for which a restaurant week can be especially beneficial. Not a big name — and known more for being a sports bar than a restaurant — the Wheelhouse features intriguing selections (chilled summer-corn chowder and bruschetta with avocado and fried egg) on its restaurant-week menu as well as crowdpleasers (fish tacos with blackened mahi mahi, pan-roasted chicken with baconbraised Brussels sprouts). You can view the full list of participating restaurants and their menus at claytonrestaurantweek.net. As always with any restaurant week, wherever you decide to go, reservations are strongly recommended.

THE LATEST FROM STLTODAY.COM/OFFTHEMENU Vincent Van Doughnut will open a location in the Grove, owner Vincent Marsden has announced. This will be second storefront for the doughnut shop, which launched as a food truck in 2013 before opening last year at 40 North Central Avenue in Clayton. The new Vincent Van Doughnut will be located at 1072 Tower Grove Avenue, just north of the intersection with Manchester Avenue and behind the new location of Sauce on the Side, which is currently under construction. Marsden aims not only to acquire a liquor license for the Grove location but also to incorporate alcohol into doughnut recipes — as an example: fried-to-order, alcohol-infused doughnuts. Marsden says the Grove location of Vincent Van Doughnut should open by mid-October at the latest. BY IAN FROEB

Madam detective Tube Talk From Jane Tennison to ‘Marcella,’ here are some

of our favorite female cops with problems of their own

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

P H O T O S : N E T F L I X ( “ M A R C E L L A” ) ; H B O ( O L I V E R ) ; C O M E D Y N E T W O R K ( N O A H )

“All your friends on Facebook are suddenly experts on British politics, even though the last British event they commented on was the series finale of ‘Downton Abbey.’”

JOHN OLIVER on “Last Week Tonight”

TREVOR NOAH on “The Daily Show”

Idris Elba’s “Luther,” with his anger issues, or Kenneth Branagh’s “Wallander,” terminally depressed, as just a small part of the list. But some of our most interesting troubled detectives these days are women, and that’s to be cheered. A female lead character with real-world problems is far more interesting than two other roles generally handed to women in crime dramas: the boss, high and mighty, or the victim, dead. Many of our favorite complicated female crime-solvers have something else in common: They’re British. Here are some of the best.

Anna Friel in “Marcella” on Netflix

Detective Sgt. Marcella Backland gave up her job to be a wife and mother. Twelve years later, she finds herself crawling back. Marcella’s husband suddenly dumped her. Their kids are away at school. And so she returns to London’s Metropolitan Police Murder Squad, no longer a sure bet for advancement, not even sure of herself anymore. Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies”) is the troubled cop in “Marcella,” arriving Friday on Netflix. The eight-episode drama from Britain’s ITV was written stltoday.com/tubetalk

“You might think ... we’re not going to bufoon, listen to some ridiculously haired buf oon, peddling lies and nativism in the hopes of turning a protest vote into power. Let Britain tell you: It can happen.”

@gailpennington

by Hans Rosenfeldt, the Swede who gave us another troubled female detective, or, technically, three. Rosenfeldt wrote “Broen” (2011), the Swedish-Danish crime series later adapted as “The Bridge” for the United States and “The Tunnel” for Great Britain and France. Each features a young woman whose odd personality, possibly as a result of Asperger’s syndrome, makes her terrific at solving crimes but barely able to get along with people. The troubled detective is a popular dramatic device and has been since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle gave Sherlock Holmes a cocaine addiction. Consider @tubetalkpd

Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison, played by Helen Mirren in “Prime Suspect” • In the long-running British procedural, which aired 1991-96 and 2003-06 on “Masterpiece Mystery” in the United States, Tennison set the bar high for future troubled crime-solvers. While fighting sexism in the workplace, she sacrificed her personal life for the job and compensated with afairs (in Season 3, she ended a pregnancy) and, increasingly, alcohol. Watch “Prime Suspect” on Hulu or DVD. Detective Sgt. Ellie Miller, played by Olivia Colman in “Broadchurch” • Solidly average is the way anyone would describe Ellie Miller in the opening of the British crime thriller. Happily married, mother of two sons, Ellie was a small-town cop in a place where crime was rare — until a neighbor boy was murdered. Alongside David Tennant’s eccentric Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, Ellie found herself stretched to a breaking point personally and professionally. Watch “Broadchurch” on Netflix or DVD.

with so many troubles, they should have brought her down. Her daughter was raped, then committed suicide, leaving Catherine to raise her young son. Her sister, with whom she lived, was a barely recovering alcoholic and heroin addict. On top of all that, her daughter’s rapist was freed from prison and back to his old ways. No wonder Catherine was snappish. Watch “Happy Valley” on Netflix or DVD. Capitaine Elise Wasserman, played by Clemence Poesy in “The Tunnel” • Like Saga Noren in “Broen” and Sonya Cross (played by Diane Kruger) in “The Bridge,” Elise is a great cop with a personality that both advances and stymies her talents. This third version of Rosenfeldt’s cross-cultural crime story is set in the Eurotunnel between France and England, precisely at the midpoint. The geography forces Elise to team up with a dry-witted English detective and leaves him to cope with her brusque manner and lack of understanding for social norms. Watch “The Tunnel” at 9 p.m. Sundays on PBS. Detective Sarah Linden, played by Mireille Enos in “The Killing” • Quietly eicient and at least superficially unemotional, Sarah was ready to retire from the police force and leave rainy Seattle for sunny California when the case of a missing teenager pulled her back in. As in the Danish original, “Forbrydelsen,” the minute-by-minute depiction of the investigation found Sarah struggling with politics and, eventually, police corruption, at the expense of her future. Watch “The Killing” on Netflix. GET MORE GAIL

BRIDGE TIPS • BOB JONES North-South vulnerable, South deals. NORTH ♠K 9 ♥A J 7 6 4 ♦9 7 3 ♣8 4 2 WEST EAST ♠10 7 6 4 3 ♠J 8 2 ♥Void ♥Q 10 8 5 ♦A 10 5 ♦Q J 8 6 ♣10 9 7 5 3 ♣J 6 SOUTH ♠A Q 5 ♥K 9 3 2 ♦K 4 2 ♣A K Q The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 2NT Pass 3♦* Pass 4♥ All pass *Transfer to hearts Opening lead: 10 of ♣ Today’s deal illustrates several important points. First, note the importance of playing this contract from the South hand. Had North been declarer, an opening lead of the queen of diamonds would have netted the defense the first three tricks before declarer had a chance to tackle the trump suit. Score one for transfer bids. The opening club lead from West puts South in with a chance — a chance that will fail if South starts trumps by leading the king. Declarer can discard one diamond from

dummy on the spades, but he still must hold his trump losers to one. That will be no problem should the missing trumps split 2-2 (no losers) or 3-1. Declarer must take precautions against a possible 4-0 split. The correct safety play, to insure against two trump losers with this combination, is well known. Declarer must start the suit by playing the ace rather than the king. Should both opponents follow suit, declarer just plays a heart to the king and takes the diamond discard on the spades. Should East show out, declarer can lead a heart to the king and another back toward the jack. Declarer can finish drawing trumps while the king of diamonds is still protected. Should West show out on the first heart, as here, declarer can lead back toward the kingnine, forcing East to put up his 10. South will win this with the king, take the diamond discard, and then lead a heart to the jack. Declarer can finish drawing trumps later while holding his diamond losses to two tricks. A safety play from the safe side of the table. Well done! (07/01/16)

DEAR ABBY

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

Teen sees trouble in shirtless photos

Dear Niece • Because you are nervous about approaching your uncle about this, consider discussing your concerns with the children’s mother. If your uncle is a single parent, then mention it to your own parents and, if they agree with you, ask them to mention to your uncle that his

semi-nude pictures on the web may endanger his daughters. P.S. Your uncle should be made aware that he can customize his account settings and make his profile private. That way, only family and selected close friends will be able to see his timeline. Dear Abby • My neighbor is taking care of her grandchildren. She seems responsible and the courts have allowed her to be their foster mother. Her own children not only steal, but are also physically abusive. The court ordered the mother of the kids (my neighbor’s daughter) to have no contact with them. Their father is in prison. I am friendly with this neighbor and her grandchildren. I wish I had a way to tell her that her constant shouting and screaming at the kids is unhealthy. How can I help this family and these little ones? Should I just come out and say what’s on my mind — that yelling at them undermines their

self-esteem and does no good whatsoever? — KIND NEIGHBOR IN MICHIGAN Dear Kind Neighbor • Have a chat with your neighbor about it, if you can manage it without coming across as judgmental (i.e., accusing her of “undermining their self-esteem’’). When you do, tell her you know she is carrying a lot of responsibility on her shoulders and she may be yelling because she’s stressed. Then ofer to watch the grandchildren for her once or twice a month, so she can have some quiet time for herself. If you do, you would be doing her and her grandchildren a great favor. 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.

Dear Abby • I’m concerned about a photo my uncle posted to Facebook. It features my two female cousins, ages 6 and 2, shirtless. I know no harm was intended in posting the photo, as they are both adorable girls. However, I find it inappropriate that the 6-year-old — who is going into first grade — was shirtless in the photo. Now that it is on the internet, it could be easily seen by a pedophile. How do I express my concern to my uncle about this without coming off like I am trying to parent for him? I’m only 17 and don’t want to overstep my boundaries, but as a caring family member, I am concerned. — NIECE IN COLORADO

Guests can decide to stay elsewhere

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

Dear Miss Manners • What is a host’s obligation to warn a guest when things won’t be as the guest expects? For example, hearing this upon arrival: We were going to get a mattress but we didn’t, so here’s the floor. Or: By the way, I didn’t tell you that I have three roommates, each of whom has two guests, for the one bathroom we share. Or: The guest bathroom doesn’t work, but feel free to use the one in our bedroom (with the aggressive dog that barks loudly if you walk in there at 3 a.m.). For one ofer, I asked about this beforehand, joking that if they had four kids and eight cats, I’d get a room. But if you are already there, is it rude to suggest you would prefer to stay somewhere else, and how do you do this without giving ofense? Gentle Reader • Hosts who do

not provide accessible bathrooms to overnight guests run risks that Miss Manners would rather not contemplate. It is certainly not polite. A guest may say: “Thank you so much. I completely understand. Rather than inconvenience everyone, we are happy to stay at the hotel down the road.” But there is still the risk that the host will take ofense. The decision to decamp should therefore be balanced against the severity of the inconvenience. Dear Miss Manners • My father just passed away on Wednesday and was buried on Saturday. I was sick all week from the flu and did not attend. My family is upset and giving me a hard time about it, saying I should have gone and just sat in back away from everyone. I say other than feeling bad, I should not have gone and spread germs

Gentle Reader • There are a number of things that, while perhaps true, you should not say. Being on death’s door yourself is an excellent reason not to attend a funeral. But anything less will be heard, by those looking to criticize, as a variation on, “I didn’t feel up to it.” Your family and friends will then naturally wonder if there is any time that one actually wants to attend a funeral. Or at least any time when one can publicly admit it. Your only correct response to your family is, “It broke my heart that I wasn’t able to go.”

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

All drugs can have side efects Dear Dr. Roach • Would you please discuss the use of Evista for treatment of osteoporosis as an alternative to bisphosphonates? The decision of which medication to take is very confusing, since every one of them has serious side effects. I am trying to choose the lesser of the evils. — S.K.

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • Raloxifene (Evista) has some properties similar to estrogen and some properties opposite to it. It has two major benefits: It acts like estrogen in bones, increasing bone density and reducing fracture risk, and it acts as an anti-estrogen in normal breast tissue and breast cancer, reducing the risk of developing breast cancer. Raloxifene is not as effective as bisphosphonates (such as alendronate), so normally it is used in women who can’t or shouldn’t take bisphosphonates, or in women who have both an increased risk for breast cancer and osteoporotic fractures. You are quite right that all medications have the potential for side effects, sometimes serious. For raloxifene, the most concerning is a risk for blood clots, similar to that of estrogen, with an increased risk for about 1 in 1,000 women taking the medication for a year. This needs to be balanced against the benefits of 1 fewer case of vertebral fractures and also 1 fewer case of invasive breast cancer per thousand women per year. A particular woman at very high risk for breast cancer or fracture would be expected to have more benefit, but those at higher risk for blood clots would likely have a higher increase in risk. Not all women need medication treatment for osteoporosis, and I get many letters from women who are not appropriate candidates for medication but are still prescribed powerful drugs with significant side-effect risks. Medication treatment should be reserved only for women at high risk for fracture, based on a very low bone mineral density, previous fracture or high risk of fracture based on their FRAX score (http:// www.shef.ac.uk/FRAX/). It’s always important to weigh the risks of a medication against the risks of not taking it.

Dear Dr. Roach • You recently wrote about prunes and prune juice for constipation. Does it matter whether you take it at night or in the morning? — P.K. Answer • No. Whatever works best for you. Some people with faster digestive processes may find that they have to wake up to go to the bathroom if they take it at night, but for most people either way is fine.
