‘HISTORIC STAKES’ VS. EXISTING POLITICS

Greitens adviser who is Pence’s top aide a focus in new ethics complaint

Kavanaugh nomination a minefield for Democrats like McCaskill BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • The “stakes for this nomination are historic,” says Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., on President Donald Trump’s choice of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. For Durbin’s Senate colleague Claire McCaskill, the stakes are immediate. Her re-election chances this fall could depend heavily on how she votes on the nomination, how she explains that vote, and how her Republican foes frame it against her long-standing claims that she is a centrist, not beholden to her party’s leftward-moving liberal wing. These conflicting impulses define the

Democrats, especially those fighting for survival in the U.S. Senate, over the next four months. With control of the Senate at stake, Kavanaugh’s nomination has prompted a fresh ideological debate over everything from abortion to health care. His confirmation hearing probing his judicial stance on these topics will provide daily drama later this summer, or early fall, just as voters start paying attention before the Nov. 6 elections. McCaskill is a heavy favorite to win her party’s nomination, while Attorney General Josh Hawley — with competition from ex-Libertarian Austin Petersen and former Air Force pilot Tony Monetti, among

Eric Greitens’ 2016 campaign, according to a complaint filed Tuesday with the state’s ethics commission. The complaint also says that Greitens for Missouri, which Pence chief of staff Nick Ayers advised, “funneled” donations through 501(c)(4) nonprofits, which do not have to reveal donor identities.

Criminal probe into dog food with chicken feathers expands Ballwin company pleads guilty, to pay fine BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A federal criminal in-

vestigation into companies accused of supplying pet food ingredients adulterated with chicken feathers and other lower quality poultry parts has expanded, and has snared a former Texas state employee who once investigated mislabeled food. He recently pleaded guilty. Documents filed in U.S. District Court in St. Louis have now accused four companies and four men of a scheme to pass off pet food blends that contain poultry feathers, heads, bones, feet or entrails as higher quality ingredients. On Tuesday, a Ballwin company, Diversified Ingredients, pleaded

Volunteers this week are taking down the “emergency evacuation procedures trainer” where TWA employees, mostly flight attendants, went through safety training.

End of youth baseball season is time to let loose — for a while TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The end of one baseball season reminded me of another. On Saturday my 12-year-old son’s summer season ended with a loss. That’s how seasons end. One team wins the final game. Another team loses. Everybody goes home. There was some serendipity to this one. We were at the Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex — BMAC to veterans of the baseball tournament scene — which was the same place his first summer tournament season ended. When I was a kid, we didn’t play tournaments, we played Little League. Dad would show up at the tryouts with a list that included a few of my friends. Most of the coaches had stopwatches to time the fastest players. Dad didn’t bother. Of course, that doesn’t stop him from telling the same joke at every family gathering. “Son, do you remember baseball tryouts?” he will ask. “All the coaches brought stopwatches. But when you ran, they used a sundial.” Like his old man, my son is not blessed with the fleetest of feet. We call him “Wheels.” It’s one of those ironic nicknames. When he stretches a triple to a double, the dugout will cheer in unison: “Way to go, Wheels.” I’ll turn to the parent next to me and say: “Get that kid a cheeseburger.” I have my dad’s sense of humor. But back to Bridgeton. Generally after a loss, there is this parental moment where we gauge the mood of the boy: Will the drive home be a silent one? How long until we can talk? Not so this weekend. Nobody likes to lose, but five minutes after the game, a group of the boys were planning a movie outing

later that day. Time to go watch some dinosaurs rip apart a few Jeeps as man once again fails to control Mother Nature. Then, of course, there would be some Fortnite to be played, that current bane of every parent I know. The post-loss mood — my son and his Redbirds teammates knew immediately that there was much to celebrate, including, frankly, the end of a long season — took me back to another day at BMAC, four or five years ago. The Athletics had just lost their final tournament game of the season. It wasn’t very close. Behind that particular field is a playground. Within five minutes the boys were climbing and sliding, laughing and jostling. Baseball season was over. It was time to let loose. A couple of months ago St. Louis Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak was the keynote speaker

at the first annual Joe Strauss Memorial Golf Tournament, a fundraiser honoring my former colleague, the Post-Dispatch sports columnist who succumbed to cancer in 2015. I asked Mozeliak what he thought about the youth baseball culture in St. Louis. We are doing it wrong, he said. It turns out, Mozeliak has a son about my son’s age, and we are both living the same baseball world, one in which parents pay too much money for too many games all in the pursuit of that elusive dream of a baseball scholarship that is unlikely to come. We argue over classifications like AA, AAA and Major; we travel the tryout circuit and seek out the elitist of the most elite. For more than a decade now I’ve been a sometimes hypocritical follower of the advice in Bob Bigelow’s “Just Let the Kids Play,” a book that analyzes everything America does wrong when it comes to youth sports. It’s a long list. Professionalizing our children before they are even teenagers and creating expensive sports circuits in baseball, volleyball, soccer — you name it — are at the top of the list. Mozeliak and I share a trait. We both know this process is flawed, but it’s what we have. So we play along. Next month my son turns 13. He’ll celebrate by having friends from two different baseball teams he plays on over to the house. They’ll play whiffle ball, eat some pizza, and, well, play Fortnite. I’ll imagine earlier days of playgrounds and lazy summers watching them enjoy the freedom to play ball in the backyard, making up their rules as they go, because adults tend to mess things up. Then I’ll snap out of it. Fall ball is around the corner. I better get online and reserve some cage time. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

PEOPLE ‘Roseanne’ still in Emmy hunt

If “Roseanne” has any shot at Emmy honors, it will be because television academy voters may be willing to overlook Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet that ended the revival after one season. Barr, the sitcom and its cast are vying for Emmy nominations to be announced Thursday morning. They were submitted for consideration before the show was axed. The comedian’s online insult targeting Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama, prompted ABC to cancel the series despite its high ratings, said Tom O’Neil, author of “The Emmys.” Barr and others who worked on the show are hoping that attention will be focused on what they achieved and not the controversy, said O’Neil, editor of the Gold Derby awards handicapping website. 18th rape allegation against Simmons • Alexia Norton Jones, the granddaughter of publisher W.W. Norton, accused Russell Simmons on Tuesday of rape, bringing the number of allegations against the Def Jam co-founder to 18. Jones told Variety that after going on a date with Simmons in 1990, he invited her back to his downtown Manhattan apartment and raped her. Indiana Jones waits for 2021 • The Walt Disney Co. has announced that the fifth installment in the “Indiana Jones” franchise will be released in July 2021 instead of July 2020. Script issues are reportedly behind the delay. Last month, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” co-screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan was brought on to help. Steven Spielberg is set to direct, with Harrison Ford also reprising his role. Ford will be 79 in July 2021. Clooney ‘fine’ after motorbike, car collision • Actor George Clooney was taken to the hospital in Sardinia and released after his motorbike and a car crashed on a state road on the Italian island Tuesday, hospital officials said. “He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” Clooney spokesman Stan Rosenfield said in an email. Clooney reportedly was in Sardinia filming a television miniseries adapted from Joseph Heller’s World War II novel “Catch-22.”

DIGEST ST. LOUIS > Imo’s family puts up $10,000 reward in death of delivery driver • The Imo’s family has donated $10,000 to CrimeStoppers in honor of an employee who died Sunday, four days after he was shot while delivering a pizza. The donation bumps the reward for information that leads to an arrest in the murder of David Matthews to a potential $15,000. The anonymous tip line typically offers up to $5,000 in homicide cases. Matthews Matthews, 31, died Sunday. Friends and family say he was delivering a pizza for the St. Louis family-owned business in the 3900 block of Potomac Avenue just before midnight on the Fourth of July when he was shot twice in the neck. Police have not arrested any suspects in the case and have not discussed a motive. Authorities asked anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866371-8477. Callers can remain anonymous. ST. PETERS > Section of eastbound McClay Road to close • Eastbound McClay Road will be closed east of Jungermann Road for about 200 feet for three days beginning Wednesday. City officials said the shutdown was necessary to allow replacement of concrete pavement as part of ongoing improvements to McClay. When McClay reopens to eastbound

traffic, the westbound side of the street will be reduced to two lanes from three lanes for about a week. CREVE COEUR > Council discusses revising deer hunting ordinance • The City Council here is considering changes to its deer hunting ordinance, in hopes of bringing in more hunters. Many residents have expressed concern about the animals’ growing population, including complaints about deer-vehicle collisions and property damage, city officials have said. The city has taken various steps in an attempt to reduce the deer population, such as passing a “no feeding” ordinance, setting up a bow hunting program, and trying to educate residents through newsletter articles and information posted on the city website. On Monday night, City Administrator Mark Perkins presented to the council a report from police Capt. Tim Koncki on suggested changes to the deer ordinance. Koncki said he had spoken to local bow hunters and reviewed deer hunting laws from other cities. He said potential changes included: • Getting rid of a city practice of putting signs in front yards of homes where hunting takes place stating “Deer Hunt in Progress,” which he said brought too much attention to the practice so that opposing neighbors “are getting aggravated.” Also, he said the signs “may create (an) uncomfortable feel for those who may

otherwise be interested in allowing hunting on their property.” • Reducing the minimum lot size required for hunting to a half-acre from one acre. • More actively advertising the program in hopes of increasing the number of land owners who allow hunting. • Working with schools, churches and playgrounds to allow controlled hunts on or near their property or reducing the 150yard minimum barrier around such sites for bow hunting. Police Chief Glenn Eidman also said a recommendation had been to reduce liability insurance requirements for hunting to a $1 million policy from $2 million. The council will further discuss the proposed changes on July 23 and probably vote next month on them. FAIRMONT CITY > Overpass repairs to put squeeze on I-55/70 drivers • Westward motorists on Interstate 55/70 should prepare Wednesday for a squeeze to one lane from three on the bridge carrying the road over Highway 111. The lane restriction, to allow repairs to an expansion joint, will begin at 9 a.m. and end by 4 p.m., the Illinois Department of Transportation said. Traffic delays are expected, IDOT said.

Deep water, not alcohol, was factor in Fort Leonard Wood drowning BY JESSE BOGAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ABOVE • Participants watch as Trooper Matthew LoMedico (right) flies a drone during the second-annual Missouri Highway Patrol Youth Academy on Tuesday at Sunnyhill Adventures in Dittmer. The five-day career exploration program includes 23 youths from throughout the St. Louis area and the Metro East, according to Sgt. Bob Parr of the highway patrol’s career recruitment division. LEFT • Missouri Highway Patrol Youth Academy cadets check out a drone demonstration by Trooper Matthew LoMedico on Tuesday at Sunnyhill Adventures in Dittmer. The youth academy is geared toward students who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.

The young off-duty Marine who drowned July 4 in Fort Leonard Wood was swimming at Sapper’s Cove, one of many places to enjoy the Big Piney River inside the sprawling military post in south-central Missouri. “He was swimming with four other Marine trainees when he was swept under the water and didn’t resurface,” Missouri Highway Patrol Lt. Bruce Fiske said Tuesday. Fiske said the victim was Corey Staten, 23, of Baltimore. He said neither alcohol nor foul play appears to have been a contributing factor in Staten’s death. “Many times alcohol is involved (with drownings), but in this case, it evidently wasn’t,” he said. Staten disappeared around 4:25 p.m. Various search and rescue teams tried to locate him. A Highway Patrol dive team found Staten the following morning in 8 feet of water, about 120 yards downstream from where he disappeared in Sapper’s Cove. He was wearing black shorts and shoes. “It’s not a dangerous river, it’s just deeper water,” Fiske said. The drowning is being investigated by the military. “It is a tragic incident and the command is providing everything we can to support the family at this time and the lead investigating agencies,” Marine Corps Training and Education Command spokesperson Capt. Joshua Pena said by telephone from Virginia. Fort Leonard Wood is known as an Army training facility, but Staten was part of the Marine Corps Detachment there and was attending the Basic Motor Transport Operator Course. He’d been on post since March 20. On any given day, there are about 14,000 service members training at Fort Leonard Wood, including service members from other countries. During heaving flooding in the area in late 2015, five international trainees perished when their car was swept away by floodwater off post. Staten’s family said they were devastated and busy planning his funeral arrangements. Staten recently worked at Walmart and studied chemistry at Community College of Baltimore County, according to his Facebook page. In a February photograph, he appeared in uniform, with a smiling boy standing next to him in a yellow T-shirt that said: “My uncle ... is a Marine.” Jesse Bogan • 314-340-8255 @jessebogan on Twitter jbogan@post-dispatch.com

Clay appeals to ICE on behalf of Missouri man Maplewood church took in immigrant in U.S. for 14 years BY DOUG MOORE St. Louis Post-Dispatch

U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay is asking the country’s immigration enforcement agency to let Alex Garcia, a man evading deportation by living in a Maplewood church, go home to his Poplar Bluff, Mo., family without fear of being sent back to Honduras. “Alex is a family man, is not a danger to the community and should be reunited with his U.S. citizen wife and five U.S. citizen children,” Clay, D-St. Louis, wrote in a letter to Ricardo A. Wong, director of the Chicago office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. As Clay points out in his letter, dated June 27 but made public by his office on Tuesday, Garcia came to the country illegally about 14 years ago. Once on the

radar of ICE, Garcia was granted a Stay of Removal in 2015 and again in 2016. But last year, under President Donald Trump’s administration, Garcia’s request to stay in the country for another year was denied. Faced with deportation, Garcia, now 37, worked with a St. Louis immigration advocacy group to seek sanctuary and tapped Christ Church United Church of Christ, a small congregation that had pledged to be a place to live for those facing deportation. In 2011, ICE enacted a policy designating “sensitive locations” where officials would not likely enforce immigration laws. The locations include churches, schools and hospitals. Garcia was the first person to seek sanctuary in Missouri. In May, members of Eliot Unitarian Chapel in Kirkwood voted to become the second sanctuary church in the St. Louis region but have not yet been asked for help. Clay’s letter comes after he visited with Garcia on May 25.

“We’re fishing,” Clay said in May. “We are fishing to figure out a way to get this young man reunited with his family by any means necessary.” He told Garcia during his 30-minute visit that the congressman’s office would be in touch with ICE and Clay promised Garcia he would return to the church one day to watch Garcia walk out a free man. “I respectfully request that you grant him a Stay of Removal for at least one year,” Clay said in his letter to Wong. “Exercising prosecutorial discretion in Alex’s case would not adversely impact any of the department’s primary goals. However, if the stay is denied, Alex has no alternate means of reuniting with his family. Separation would pose an extreme hardship for his entire family, financially and emotionally.” An email to ICE seeking comment was not immediately returned.

More charges possible as pet food investigation continues FEATHERS • FROM A1

guilty to two misdemeanor counts of adulteration or misbranding of food. Two counts were dropped. In return, the company agreed to pay $1.5 million restitution, a $75,000 forfeiture judgment, $2,000 fine and $250 special assessment. Prosecutors have said in court filings that additional charges may come against “other individuals and entities” in an investigation being handled by agents with the FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Food and Drug Administration. Prosecutors declined to comment while the cases are pending, as did most defense lawyers. The former Texas inspector, Gregory S. McKinney, 49, waived indictment and pleaded guilty May 11 to a federal felony of adulteration or misbranding of food. McKinney was once employed by the Office of the Texas State Chemist, which investigates the agriculture and feed industries. While still employed by the state, he formed and ran a company called Superior Commodities LLC to “replicate” practices he’d once investigated, his plea agreement says. McKinney admitted in his plea to supplying falsely labeled ingredients for pet food products to boost profits. The products were labeled as chicken meal, which is supposed to contain higher quality ingredients, but instead contained cheaper ingredients. McKinney’s company earned $2 million or more that way, and he took in roughly half of that amount, his plea says. At his sentencing hearing, set for Aug. 24, he could face roughly four years in prison. Another Texas man, William Douglas Haning, 46, was indicted in U.S. District Court in St. Louis in February on charges of conspiracy and wire fraud. “Our client pleaded not guilty to all counts of the indictment,” said one of his lawyers, Justin Gelfand, in a text message. “We look forward to defending this case in the courtroom.” Prosecutors say Haning was co-owner of American By-Products of Rosser, Texas, which buys raw poultry materials and processes and blends them. From 2008 through October 2014, Haning falsified shipping documents so the shipments appeared to contain more expensive materials, the indictment claims. That was despite warnings from a state official in 2007 and 2008 that the company’s use of “feather meal” in products was unacceptable. State officials also seized 33,000 pounds of “low-ash chicken meal” in 2010 due to their concerns about mislabeling. An analysis looking for feathers in a sample found “too many to count,” the indictment says. But the indictment says Haning continued to defraud customers with the conspiracy. All of those clients were pet food companies when American ByProducts was sold to Wilbur-Ellis, a California company, in 2011, the indictment says. It’s not clear how much of the adulterated ingredients were shipped. Charging documents

ROBERT PATRICK • rpatrick@post-dispatch.com

Judy Dethloff, of St. Louis, says she would be “extremely angry” if she found out lower-quality ingredients than expected were used in food that she fed her pets.

say shipments went out weekly, if not daily, from Rosser, and specifically mention shipments of 48,000 to 50,000 pounds each on three occasions in 2014. Haning used another “straw” company and falsified shipping documents supplied by Diversified Ingredients to conceal the true contents of the shipments, the indictment says. Haning and others received nearly $9 million for hitting profit targets that would not have been possible without the criminal conspiracy, the indictment says. Prosecutors are now seeking the forfeiture of a 2,700-acre exotic animal hunting ranch in Texas that Haning co-owns, claiming that some of Haning’s ill-gotten gains were used there.

DIVERSIFIED INGREDIENTS

Wilbur-Ellis Feed LLC, a California company, pleaded guilty April 25 in federal court in St. Louis to one count of adulteration or misbranding of food. The company is likely to be placed on probation and ordered to pay out nearly $5.5 million at sentencing. Diversified Ingredients coowner Collin McAtee pleaded guilty May 17 to two counts of the same offense. He could face up to a year in prison but his lawyer will ask for probation. McAtee admitted that Diversified helped ship “adulterated and misbranded” food from Rosser to pet food companies from 2012 to May 2014. Some also went to “co-packers” or “co-manufacturers” in Kansas, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Ohio, McAtee’s plea says. The company’s lawyer, Gordon Ankney, said after the company pleaded guilty Tuesday: “We made some mistakes handling documents. This in no way indicates that we had actual knowledge that Wilbur-Ellis adulterated or misbranded the product.” Ryan Yamka, an industry consultant, founder of Luna Science and Nutrition and former senior vice president at Blue Buffalo, said that many small and medium-size companies rely on co-manufacturers for their pet food, because they can’t “spend

$50 million for a plant.” The companies were not named in McAtee’s plea, but their locations revealed the company’s identities. No company spokesperson wanted to comment about the case. Yamka said some of the companies probably relied on the documentation they got from Diversified. Some may do independent testing, but they would have to use a laboratory or microscope, and processing of the feathers could make them harder to detect. Feather meal is not digestible by pets, he said, and is “not going to be a complete and balanced protein.” Many pet owners, Yamka said, buy “emotionally” and are willing to spend extra on higherquality pet food. “The theory is, the more you pay, the better the product. And 99.9 percent of the time, that’s probably the case.” Judy Dethloff, of St. Louis, who spent $240 on 10 quart-sized milk cartons of Answers frozen dog food at Four Muddy Paws pet market in Lafayette Square last month, said she began buying organic raw food when her Norwegian elkhound, Nick, began having allergy issues. Nick, now 16, and her second dog, a black Lab named Bentley, both eat the raw food and vegetables Dethloff ferments herself. She said the money she spends on high-quality food pays for itself in a reduction of vet and medical bills. “I’d be extremely angry,” she said when asked what would happen if she found out she was paying for lower quality ingredients. (Answers was never mentioned in the criminal case in St. Louis. The company says it sources its organic ingredients at local farms.) The criminal investigation sprang out of a lawsuit filed by St. Louis-based Nestlé Purina PetCare against Blue Buffalo in 2014. The suit, and a later classaction lawsuit filed by consumers, alleged Blue Buffalo lied to customers about its use of natural ingredients. Blue Buffalo said it was defrauded by suppliers and settled both suits. Robert Patrick • 314-621-5154 @rxpatrick on Twitter RPatrick@post-dispatch.com

Pence’s top aide is targeted in Missouri ethics complaint ETHICS • FROM A1

investigative committee obtained, was employed by a company that “manages money for the state of Missouri” — and could thus be barred by federal law from donating to political campaigns. It is unclear to what extent, if any, Ayers was involved in discussions with that particular donor. But an email from 2015 shows that Ayers was in contact with the Greitens campaign about a “restricted donor.” The revelation is contained in a 24-page complaint by Rep. Jay Barnes, R-Jefferson City, who led the now-defunct House committee that was collecting evidence to determine if Greitens should be impeached and removed from office. Greitens, who was enmeshed in multiple scandals and had faced two potential felony court cases that were later dropped, resigned on June 1 after 17 tumultuous months in office. Greitens’ whereabouts have been unclear since he moved out of the Governor’s Mansion. Barnes asked the ethics panel to investigate several alleged campaign infractions by Greitens and his campaign. The complaint singles out three close advisers: Ayers, fundraiser Meredith Gibbons and campaign manager Austin Chambers. Barnes wrote that the committee obtained a June 27, 2016, email to Gibbons from an undisclosed “early supporter and fundraiser of Greitens.” The person writes to Gibbons that “I’m pretty sure he’s not allowed to give,” because “[redacted] manages money for the state of Missouri”. “Eric can mention the 501(c) (4) if applicable, but no idea how [redacted] will react to that,” the email says. It is unclear from Tuesday’s complaint who the prospective donor was, and whether the donor ultimately cut a check to help propel Greitens to office. But Barnes wrote that on June 29, 2016, two days after the email, a 501(c)(4) group called Freedom Frontier donated $500,000 to LG PAC, the mysterious entity that spent more than $4 million to attack Greitens’ competitors in the 2016 primary. Though the Greitens campaign denied coordinating with LG PAC, Ayers filed a financial disclosure form last year that said he worked for Freedom Frontier during the 2016 campaign. In addition, Barnes said that on Dec. 4, 2015, Ayers and Gibbons exchanged emails about a “restricted donor,” though the two do not elaborate. “There is a restricted donor that we’d like for you to reach out to when you have time,” Gibbons wrote to Ayers. “I can explain more over the phone.” “Will buzz you soon re: restricted donor,” Ayers replied. Craig Holman, government affairs lobbyist for Public Citizen, a Washington-based consumer advocacy organization, said if a “restricted” person ended up donating to Greitens’ cause, the person could have violated federal pay-to-play rules. He said there is a “long history” of financial firms attempting to win government business by “making campaign contributions to endear themselves to those who are responsible for rewarding the contracts.” Alyssa Farah, press secretary for Pence, defended Ayers in a statement issued Tuesday evening: “This is a complaint lodged against former clients of Mr. Ayers, who has always complied with federal and state campaign finance laws meticulously, and did so in this instance as well,” Farah said. Catherine Hanaway, attorney for Greitens’ campaign, said in an emailed statement that the complaint was “full of false accusations.” Hanaway wrote: “The Greitens for Missouri campaign never attempted to solicit or receive campaign contributions from prohibited sources. There was never any attempt by staff or consultants of the Greitens Campaign to violate campaign finance law. Missouri law was not violated — period. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false, and the facts prove that.” Chambers could not be reached for comment Tuesday. In a joint statement, two of the three Democratic members of the 10-member committee — Reps. Gina Mitten of Richmond Heights and Tommie Pierson Jr. of St. Louis — said they were confident the ethics commission would determine that punishment is warranted. “With the ethics complaint

that has been filed based on the work of the House investigative committee, the Missouri Ethics Commission has overwhelming evidence to conclude that Eric Greitens, his campaign committee and affiliated dark money organization broke state campaign finance laws,” the statement noted.

OTHER INFRACTIONS

Barnes alleges several campaign infractions by the disgraced former chief executive, including that Greitens failed to form a campaign committee after spending $500 on his statewide bid and that he did not report the $4 million spent by LG PAC as an in-kind contribution. He said the Greitens campaign violated Missouri law by purposefully concealing the ultimate source of the $4 million spent by LG PAC, as well as the source of a $1.97 million donation to the Greitens campaign from the opaque group called SEALs for Truth. Barnes also released a Nov. 17, 2015, email exchange between Chambers and Gibbons, in which the two discuss directing two Democratic donors to an unknown 501(c)(4) “so that they don’t appear on our reports,” Chambers said. Evidence the House committee obtained “strongly suggests that Greitens for Missouri engaged in activity purposefully designed to conceal donor identities,” Barnes wrote. Though the ethics commission can only consider civil punishment for breaches of campaign finance law, the complaint also mentions another possible violation of state law: using taxpayer resources for political purposes. Barnes said that “upon information and belief” Greitens’ taxpayer-paid general counsel Lucinda Luetkemeyer “regularly attended meetings” with the Greitens campaign and A New Missouri, Greitens’ political nonprofit. State employees are barred from political activities while they are on the clock. The Post-Dispatch reported in January that Luetkemeyer was on a fact-finding mission in the hours before news broke that Greitens had an extramarital affair with his hairdresser in 2015. Luetkemeyer did not respond to an inquiry on Tuesday. Barnes also said that once in office, Greitens formed A New Missouri to skirt campaign donation limits and purposefully conceal the identities of donors. Barnes said last year’s formation of A New Missouri to support Greitens’ agenda was in response to the 2016 passage of a statewide referendum that placed caps on campaign contributions at $2,600 per election. “The principals of Greitens for Missouri set up A New Missouri Inc. for the purpose of evading the newly-enacted campaign finance laws in Amendment 2,” the complaint says. That, Barnes said, violates the state constitution, which bars people from using fake names to contribute money to political causes. It is not uncommon for governors throughout the United States to use similar dark money groups. According to a June report by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, more than one in three governors holding office as of Jan. 31, 2017, can be linked to 501(c)(4) groups. Of those, 70 percent did not voluntarily disclose their donors to the public, the CREW report noted. Noah Bookbinder, executive director of the left-leaning group, said the unchecked spending allows special interest groups and wealthy donors to exert influence on the political process. “Shadow governance groups allow governors to benefit from unlimited spending by sources unknown to the public — but possibly known to them,” Bookbinder said. “This is a growing, cutting-edge way for secret money to influence politics, and we need to start paying more attention to it.” Other governors with similar organizations include Ohio’s John Kasich, New York’s Andrew Cuomo and Wisconsin’s Scott Walker. The registered agent for A New Missouri is Robin Simpson of Monroe City. Simpson, who was appointed by Greitens to serve on the Missouri Lottery Commission, has not responded to telephone messages. The ethics commission does not comment on pending complaints.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Crash victim identified • Authorities have identified a Spanish Lake woman who died Friday after a crossover crash on West Florissant Avenue. Ashley Logan, 34, was pronounced dead at a hospital after the crash, police said Tuesday. The crash happened about 11:50 p.m. near West Florissant and Emerson avenues in the Walnut Park East area, police said. Logan was trapped in a 2004 Pontiac Montana, unconscious and not breathing, after the SUV crossed the center line on West Florissant and hit a 2014 Ford Fusion, police said. Firefighters got Logan out of the SUV and she was taken to a hospital, but she was later pronounced dead. The driver of the Fusion, a 38-year-old man, was in critical but stable condition, police said. Logan lived in the 1500 block of Cove Lane in Spanish Lake. ST. LOUIS > Felon faces weapons charges • A Dutchtown man faces multiple charges of unlawful possession of a firearm after police seized weapons from his home. Police say Hayward McKinney, 39, of the 3600 block of South Compton Avenue in McKinney the city’s Dutchtown neighborhood, consented to a search of his home on Saturday. They found revolvers, pistols and two long guns described in court documents as assault rifles. It’s not clear what triggered the search, though police said in court documents that they performed a pedestrian check on McKinney, who had outstanding warrants, and he consented to the search of his home. Police said they also seized fentanyl, a powerful opioid, but McKinney has not been charged with any drug crimes in the new case. He was charged Sunday with 10 counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. McKinney is barred from possessing the weapons due to prior felony convictions. He is on probation in a drug case after pleading guilty last year. Bail was set at $30,000, cash only. ST. LOUIS > Shooting victim identified • Authorities have identified a man found shot to death in the front yard of a home in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood Sunday night. Lionel White, 27, was found dead of gunshot wounds in the 4600 block of Minnesota Avenue about 7:20 p.m., police said. He had no apparent connection to the home. The shooting was initially reported about a block away in the 4600 block of Michigan Avenue, and police suspect that White may have run and collapsed in the yard on Minnesota. White lived in the 4400 block of Tennessee Avenue, about half a mile from where his body was found. Homicide detectives are investigating. Authorities asked anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-3718477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward. JEFFERSON CITY > State settles sex harassment case for $800,000 • Missouri taxpayers are on the hook for another large legal payout after state officials settled a sexual harassment case brought by a female prison guard. According to a monthly report issued by Attorney General Josh Hawley, the state will pay $800,000 to former Missouri Department of Corrections officer Tina Gallego after she outlined allegations of being sexually harassed and poisoned by male officers when she worked at the Kansas City Reentry Center. The settlement is the latest of several six- and seven-figure legal payments paid out in connection with discrimination and harassment of women workers within the state’s sprawling prison system. But, problems with harassment and

discrimination are not limited to within the state’s 21 lockups. Over the past five years, taxpayers have been charged more than $52 million to settle similar cases across state agencies. Gallego alleged in her own discrimination case that she was targeted by male co-workers in 2016 after she testified in court on behalf of a co-worker about harassment and discrimination. At one point, after she had returned to work following an internal investigation of the allegations, Gallego said her can of soda had been tampered with, resulting in vomiting and a severe rash. Gallego’s co-worker, Deborah Hesse, received a settlement of $1.92 million.

ST. LOUIS > Shooting victim dies • A man who was shot in a neighborhood east of Fairground Park on Monday night later died of his wounds, police said. He was identified Tuesday as Corey Cole, 41, of Wellston. Police called to the 3200 block of Bailey Avenue just after 9 p.m. Monday found Cole with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Cole lived in the 6200 block of Ridge Avenue in Wellston, police said. Authorities asked anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-3718477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.

Still no word on Loop Trolley start date trolley officials have firmed up the initial hours of operation for the line. He said plans call for the line at first to run only Thursdays through Sundays, starting each day at noon and going to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays and to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Because of delays in completing the renovation of one of the line’s three operating cars, the Loop Trolley had announced in April that the system would run on reduced hours at first. Once all three cars are available, the line is to run every day. The $51 million line will run from the western end of the Delmar Loop in University City to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. When construction began in March 2015, trolley officials said they expected the line to open in late 2016. The project has been slowed, however, by various delays.

BY MARK SCHLINKMANN st. Louis Post-dispatch

The Loop Trolley’s long-awaited starting date still has yet to be pinned down, and trolley officials now say they hope to begin service in August or September. Joe Edwards, who heads the trolley tax district, said Tuesday that the opening definitely won’t be anytime this month. July had been the previous hoped-for target period for starting operations cited by trolley officials early last month. Edwards said it all depends on how soon state and federal regulators give the goahead. Meanwhile, testing of the trolley line and equipment continues, he said. “They’re very safety-oriented, which is good and all,” Edwards said. “It just takes more time” than trolley backers initially had expected. Meanwhile, Edwards said he and other

Cave rescue is triumph, ‘something nobody thought possible’ CAVE • FROM A1

out of the cave” — a reference to the boys’ soccer team. “We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what.” Eight of the boys were rescued by a team of Thai and international divers on Sunday and Monday. On Tuesday, the final four boys were brought out, along with their coach. Their rescue was followed a few hours later by the safe return of a medic and three SEAL divers who had stayed for days with the boys in their cramped refuge in the cave. Cheers erupted from the dozens of volunteers and journalists awaiting news of whether the intricate and high-risk rescue mission had succeeded. Helicopters transporting the boys roared overhead. People on the street cheered and clapped when ambulances ferrying them on the last leg of their journey from the cave arrived at a hospital in Chiang Rai city. Their joy and relief was echoed around the globe by the multitude of people who had watched the long ordeal in widely broadcast news reports. Payap Maiming, who helped provide food and necessities to rescue workers and journalists, noted that fact. “I’m happy for Thais all over the country,” he said. “And actually just everyone in the world because every news channel has presented this story and this is what we have been waiting for. “It’s really a miracle,” Payap said. “It’s hope and faith that has brought us this success.” Amporn Sriwichai, an aunt of rescued

coach Ekkapol Chantawong, was ecstatic. “If I see him, I just want to hug him and tell him that I missed him very much,” she said. The plight of the boys and their coach captivated much of the world — from the heart-sinking news that they were missing, to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys when they were found by a pair of British divers 10 days later. They were trapped in the sprawling Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand on June 23, when it became flooded by monsoon rains as they were exploring it after soccer practice. Each of the boys, ages 11 to 16 and with no diving experience, was guided out by a pair of divers in the three-day operation. The route, in some places just a crawl space, had oxygen canisters positioned at regular intervals to refresh each team’s air supply. Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai Navy SEAL died Friday while replenishing the canisters. Cave-diving experts had warned it was potentially too risky to dive the youngsters out. But Thai officials, acutely aware that the boys could be trapped for months by monsoon rains that would swell waters in the cave system, seized a window of opportunity provided by relatively mild weather. A massive water pumping effort also made the winding cave more navigable. The confidence of the diving team, and expertise specific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission Sunday. “We did something nobody thought

possible,” Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, leader of the rescue effort, said at a celebratory news conference. Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chanocha, speaking Tuesday before the final rescue was completed, said the boys were given an anti-anxiety medication to help with their perilous removal from the cave. Prayuth said the Tham Luang cave would be closed for some time to make it safe for visitors. Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the first four boys rescued were now able to eat normal food, though they couldn’t yet take the spicy dishes favored by many Thais. Two of the boys may have a lung infection, but all eight are generally “healthy and smiling,” he said. It could be at least a week before they can be released from the hospital, he said. For now the boys were being kept in isolation to try to keep them safe from infections by outsiders. But family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier.

MEDICAL CAUTION

The boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors are probably worried that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert. They may also pose infection risks to others. Thai doctors have said they don’t know what type of unusual illnesses the

boys may have picked up in the cave. “We have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave,” and doctors are running a battery of tests on the boys, Jedsada said. Bats live in caves. They can spread viruses ranging from rabies to Nipah, which can cause pneumonia, seizures and death. The boys told doctors they did not see any bats or other animals, and experts say it’s unlikely bats would dwell as deep in a cave as the boys were. Lipkin said more likely risks were tetanus bacteria that could infect a wound, diarrhea-causing bacteria that could have contaminated the cave waters, and inhalable fungal spores that could cause breathing problems — including pneumonia. If medical tests show no dangers after another two days, parents will be able to enter the isolation area dressed in sterilized clothing, staying two yards away from the boys, said another public health official, Tosthep Bunthong. One of the Thai doctors said that the boys seemed happy but that psychologists would be evaluating them. Lipkin said the most likely problems would stem from “the stress associated with this harrowing experience.” People who endure such an intense and dangerous event can go on to suffer lasting anxiety, depression and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Thailand’s Department of Mental Health said hospitals were working with the families to help the boys mentally recover, including by not digging for details about what they endured.

TWA training module is bound for Kansas museum TWA • FROM A1

came to help take apart the simulator, as he looked out the emergency exit at the deflated evacuation slide. Before its collapse, TWA dominated Lambert for decades and flew St. Louisans nonstop to destinations around the world. But after corporate raider Carl Icahn bought the airline in 1985, he pulled nearly $1 billion out of the company, doubling its debt to $2.67 billion. Icahn surrendered control in 1993 and eight years later, American Airlines purchased TWA’s assets out of its third and final bankruptcy. American began reducing its operations at Lambert after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, including ending nonstop flights to Europe, and closed the hub in 2003. American’s takeover of TWA crippled the once-booming airport. In just the three years following the 2001 acquisition, Lambert lost nearly 46 percent of its weekly flights and 60 percent of its available flight seats. The airport has seen a recent surge in passenger traffic and flights, including new nonstop flights to Iceland via discount carrier Wow Air, but its future remains uncertain as the city weighs whether to lease the airport to a private operator. The ensuing years after the merger have been tough on TWA employees, whose losses included seniority positions. It wasn’t until 2014, and after 12 years of litigation, that former TWA pilots and their lawyers reached a $53 million settlement with their former union from a lawsuit alleging inadequate representation in the merger negotiations. The merger was contentious from the beginning, said Greg Tyler, a TWA aircraft mechanic working to save the training cabin at Lambert so it can be displayed at the TWA Museum in Kansas City. “When American took us over, they made sure everything — apparel, signage, anything — was destroyed before it was put in the dumpster so we couldn’t retrieve it,” said Tyler, who worked for TWA for 19 years and lives in Indianapolis. He said the company was his life, and that his father was an aircraft maintenance supervisor for 30 years. Tyler still carries his TWA passcard in his wallet. So saving the cabin means a lot to him.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Man accused of sex abuse • A St. Louis man was charged Tuesday with sexually abusing a boy at a home in the city’s Hill neighborhood in 2016. Jacob Hilbert, 22, of the 4700 block of Candace Drive in unincorporated St. Louis County near the Village of Wilbur Park, is charged with two counts of attempted

It’s where crews practiced what to do in a fire, when fake smoke was pushed through its vents, and water evacuations. Life vests dangled beneath the red and blue seats. “This was set up identical to a real plane so even the crews couldn’t tell the difference,” Tyler said as he walked down the plane’s aisle on Monday, the cabin filled with the roar of saws ripping seats from the floor. “It needed to be that way to simulate the situations.” The outside is a fake shell. The interior is from a plane that sustained damage to its undercarriage when the landing gear didn’t come down correctly during a landing in the early ’70s in Cincinnati, causing the plane to slide down the runway, Tyler said. Its 60 red and blue seats are what TWA called its “ambassador class.” “All of us are in here enjoying the heck out of it and telling old war stories,” said Gerasim Mayden, who came to work in aircraft maintenance for TWA back in 1967, of the preservation effort. Mayden, 72, is now a crew chief for American, and is set to retire at the end of August. The evacuation slide was deployed and detached last week. It’s the slide that Trenia Edwards-Clark, a longtime flight attendant for TWA who went on to work for American, used during her training in the late 1980s. She flew all over the world, to places like Rome and Paris. She’s 69 now, and retired. She saw the notice posted on Twitter seeking volunteers and wanted to come. “I wanted to be with TWA people,” she said. The airport donated the simulator to the museum, which will free up space in the Navaid Road building that can be leased out, said Jeff Lea, a spokesman. The simulator will be hauled to the Kansas City museum, where it will take several weeks to reassemble. Tyler and Mayden will be part of that effort. The goal is to have it ready to display by the end of August. TWA was headquartered in Kansas City from 1931 until its move to New York in 1964. It was based in St. Louis from 1992 until the American takeover. Leah Thorsen • 314-340-8320 @leahthorsen on Twitter lthorsen@post-dispatch.com

Jared Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars performs at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights last year. The band returned Monday. BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ special to the Post-dispatch

If you think that Jared Leto is a little too tightly wound in some of his acting roles — as the Joker in “Suicide Squad,” say, or his Oscar-winning turn as Rayon in “Dallas Buyers Club”— don’t worry. He seems to have found a suitable release for all that intensity by whipping live audiences into a frenzy as the frontman for Thirty Seconds to Mars. At Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on Monday night, Leto spent much of his 90-minute set doing just that — turning his songs into massive singalongs, asking fans to show off their dance moves and, for the finale, filling the stage with dozens of audience members while confetti cannons blasted away. In short, the guy knows how to throw a party. There was more: Some fans waved band logo flags that were handed out by crew members; later, a flurry of giant balloons bounced around in the venue’s lower bowl. Best of all was the show’s set design, which featured a series of lighting panels that initially formed a box around the band, then moved into various formations throughout the concert. All that eye candy and the constant audience involvement was almost — but not quite — enough to distract from the evening’s oppressive heat. “You (expletives) know how to sweat,” Leto said at one point. “I’m sweating in parts of my body I didn’t know existed.” The singer was joined by his brother, drummer Shannon Leto, and multi-instrumentalist Steve Aiello, who was all but

obscured and shunted off to one side. The band’s founding guitarist, Tomo Milicevic, officially quit the group several weeks ago and has yet to be replaced. But there was some guitar playing featured on one number — “This Is War” — thanks to local musician Jerod Broadbooks, who won a contest to sit in with the band. Broadbooks acquitted himself well and got to strike a few guitar-hero poses to boot. “You did a great job,” Jared Leto told him afterward. Nearly half of the material performed was drawn from the band’s most recent album, “America.” As with many songs from previous efforts, new material such as “Hail to the Victor,” “Live Like a Dream” and “Walk on Water” are broad, bombastic rock tunes loaded with singalong-suitable “woaah-oh” vocal parts. “The Kill (Bury Me),” an older track, offered the evening’s most intense performance, which Leto delivered while perched atop one of the light panels, lifted high above his brother’s drums. It was a welcome respite from all the back-and-forth with the crowd. Involving everyone almost all the time is a worthy priority, but it had its drawbacks. A fair amount of time was purely wasted as Leto instructed individuals or the audience in general on what he wanted to have happen next. The thing is, Leto is plenty entertaining when he is the sole focus of attention. But apparently, as is the case with so many in Hollywood, what he really wants to do is direct. Walk the Moon, K Flay, and Welshly Arms opened the show, the first of the Point’s Big Summer Shows of 2018.

THEATER REVIEW

‘Jersey Boys’ at the Muny has big voices, lots of heart BY GABE HARTWIG st. Louis Post-dispatch

“Jersey Boys,” the Tony-winning musical about Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, is the kind of show that’s made for the Muny. So it seems appropriate that the Muny — in its centennial season, no less — is the first theater to stage “Jersey Boys” since its 11-year Broadway run and tour. The Muny had wanted to produce the show for a while; the rights recently became available. Anticipating high demand, the Muny is presenting eight performances of “Jersey Boys” instead of the usual seven. “Jersey Boys” is filled with songs we already know — “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night),” “Who Loves You,” “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man” and plenty more — but it’s more than just a mixtape. It also tells a complete, compelling story with lots of heart, something that can’t be said for all jukebox musicals. Each member of the Four Seasons — Frankie, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio — takes a turn as narrator, recounting the New Jersey singing group’s start in the 1960s, its rise to superstardom and its eventual breakup. The language and themes are a bit more grown-up than some may be used to seeing on the Muny stage, but such is life. For its “Jersey Boys” premiere, the Muny has assembled a powerhouse cast under director-choreographer Josh Rhodes. The suave Mark Ballas (“Dancing With the Stars”) stars as Frankie, a demanding role he also played in the show’s final months on Broadway. He shows off polished footwork and his spin on Valli’s signature falsetto. Keith Hines is Nick, whom he played on the show’s national tour. His droll, deadpan delivery provides some of the show’s funniest moments. Nicolas Dromard brings earlier experience to Tommy, a role he played offBroadway and alongside Ballas on Broad-

way. Bobby Conte Thornton is a standout as Bob, the Four Seasons’ songwriting prodigy. His big voice shines in “Cry for Me,” Bob’s first song with the new group. Muny favorite Nicholas Rodriguez sparkles as the Four Seasons’ eccentric producer, Bob Crewe. Rodriguez plays multiple roles — but perhaps too many, given how recognizable he has become. (One small complaint with the audio: A recurring issue Monday night made some actors inaudible when they began speaking.) Scenic designer Paul Tate dePoo III, lighting designer Rob Denton and video designer Matthew Young create a look that is simple but elegant, making good use of a wide platform, stairs, scaffolds, LED screens and movable towers of light. And the stage’s big turntable works overtime, to stunning effect. Instead of hand-painted backdrops, the stage’s booms carry the iconic streetlights from the boys’ old neighborhood. The video screens default to a brick pattern, but when the Four Seasons find stardom with “Sherry,” the imagery becomes more vibrant. “Dawn (Go Away),” during which the group discusses its appeal to everyday, working-class people, features a crowd huddled around 10 glowing TV sets. Crisp, colorful costumes by Andrea Lauer help establish the time period. The guys’ suits become increasingly glitzy as their celebrity soars. For the Muny’s 100th anniversary season, “Jersey Boys” is quite a gift. Gabe Hartwig • 314-340-8353 Deputy features editor @gabehartwig on Twitter ghartwig@post-dispatch.com

Perhaps more impressive, it also targets the tiny muscles around the bladder, which helps the bladder to create a tighter seal. This would explain why the average UriVarx™ user in clinical trials experiences a 66% reduction in urinary incontinence symptoms, such as day and night leaking and sudden urges to urinate.

NEW PILL MAY REPLACE DIAPERS FOR BLADDER CONTROL: This new patented clinically proven pill solution is now available nationwide

NEW DISCOVERY IN BLADDER CONTROL

EXCITING RESULTS FROM URIVARX USERS

Until now, doctors believed it was impossible to strengthen the muscles that control the bladder. They are amazed to see that it can now be done with the non-prescription UriVarx™ pill.

Many UriVarx™ users say their bladders have never been stronger. For the first time in years, they are confident and in complete control. Adult pads and diapers are no longer a big worry.

“As you get older, and the involuntary muscles around your bladder weaken, you lose urinary control. With your bladder wall unable to properly seal, you constantly leak and feel pressure to urinate” explains Dr. Bassam Damaj of Innovus Pharmaceuticals.

“After my third child, I couldn’t control my bladder. I was running to the bathroom all the time! And once I hit my 60s it became so unpredictable I needed to wear adult pads every day” explained Marie L. of Danbury, CT.

“UriVarx™ targets the bladder muscles and help restores vital kidney health, reducing urgency and frequency. It also helps you “hold it” for hours so you never have to worry about embarrassing accidents ever again!”

FREEDOM FROM SUDDEN URGES AND LEAKS Since hitting the market, sales for the patented UriVarx™ pill have soared and there are some very good reasons why. To begin with, the double blind large clinical studies published in the clinicaltrials.gov have been impressive. Participants taking UriVarx™ saw a stunning reduction in urinary frequency, which resulted in fewer bathroom trips both day and night. They also experienced a dramatic decrease in incontinence episodes, such as leaking and bed wetting. The active ingredients in UriVarx™ comes from a patented formula. It is both safe and healthy. There are also no known serious side effects in its history of use. Scientists believe that the ingredients target the muscles of the bladder to grow stronger. These muscles are responsible for keeping the bladder tightly sealed. They also help the bladder to completely empty, allowing bacteria to be flushed from the urinary tract. Research has shown that as you get older, certain hormonal changes in the body cause these muscles to shrink and become lose. This is what causes the bladder to be over active and the resulting urine accidents and why UriVarx™ seems to be so effective in the published clinical trials.

“I was embarrassed so before going to my doctor I decided to try UriVarx and I’m so glad I did! The urgency is gone and I no longer feel like my bladder is about to explode. I can also “hold it” when I need to so I’m no longer living in constant fear of finding a bathroom.”

IMPRESSIVE CLINICAL RESULTS The exciting clinical results published on the government clinical website clinicaltrials.gov show that UriVarx™ can strengthen your bladder fast, significantly reducing the urine urgency and leaks. In a new double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, 142 men and women with bladder control issues were separated into two groups. The first group was given a placebo while the other received UriVarx™. The results were incredible. The participants who received UriVarx™ saw major improvements in leaking, pressure, and the urgency to go − all without the usual side effects seen in prescription drugs! They also reported fewer trips to the bathroom both day and night. Overall, the UriVarx™ group experienced: • 56% Reduction in Urge Incontinence • 66% Reduction in Stress Incontinence

“The clinical findings are incredible, but people still wonder if it will really work” explains Dr. Bassam Damaj. “It’s normal to be skeptical, but we’ve seen thousands of UriVarx™ users get results exactly like the participants in the study. It’s an amazing product.”

HOW IT WORKS UriVarx™ is a pill that’s taken just once daily. It does not require a prescription. The active ingredients are patented natural extracts. Research shows that as we get older, the muscles which surround the bladder weaken. This is caused by hormonal changes in the body that causes the muscles to atrophy and weaken. When they become too small and weak, they cannot seal your bladder shut, which causes leaking, accidents, among other incontinence symptoms. It also prevents your bladder from fully emptying, which can result in persistent bacterial infections and UTIs. UriVarx’s™ active ingredient targets the muscles around the bladder, making them stronger. Supporting ingredients in UriVarx™ support kidney function and overall urinary health.

BLADDER PROBLEMS GONE With daily use, UriVarx™ can restore strong bladder control and help users overcome leakage without the negative side effects or interactions associated with drugs. Leakage sufferers can now put an end to the uncontrollable urges, the embarrassing accidents, and enjoy an entirely new level of comfort and confidence.

KTVI meteorologist Murray predicts departure BY JOE HOLLEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

After a total accumulation of at least 35 years on St. Louis television, KTVI (Channel 2) chief meteorologist Dave Murray will predict his last on-air forecast in Sep- Murray tember. Murray, 64, announced his retirement on the station’s 5 p.m. newscast

Tuesday. Murray started in St. Louis in 1976 on KSD (now KSDK) when he was 22, right after finishing graduate school at the University of Wyoming. In 1983, he was plucked from the local news pool and took over as the forecaster on “Good Morning America” with David Hartman and Joan Lunden. But in 1989, Murray returned to town and began his 29-year stint as chief meteorologist at KTVI. He

McCaskill vows to be diligent as she weighs vote on Kavanaugh KAVANAUGH • FROM A1

others — is the Republican front-runner. McCaskill has already been attacked on her opposition to Trump’s 2017 nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Another “no” on a second Trump nominee would be a chance for Republicans to double down that attack in a state Trump won by almost 19 percentage points in 2016. She said Tuesday that the fact that she has voted to approve nearly eight out of 10 Trump nominees to lower courts proves she takes each case on merit. “I am going to look at his record. I am going to be very diligent,” McCaskill said. “I am going to go through all of his writings. I am going to visit with him, obviously, and then I am going to make a decision on what is right. “Anyone who thinks you can make some purely political decision on this is not being realistic about a state like Missouri,” McCaskill said. “It is not like I make a whole bunch of people happy no matter how I vote. The bottom line is you just do what is right and explain it, and Missourians, I think, will understand.” Hawley will greet Vice President Mike Pence in Kansas City on Wednesday, as Pence campaigns for endangered Kansas Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder. Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh is almost certain to be mentioned as an opportunity to turn the nation’s highest court rightward for a generation. Pence, whose PAC recently donated to Hawley’s campaign, is expected to return to the state in coming weeks to campaign for Hawley. Other members of the Trump administration are expected to follow, with the Kavanaugh nomination in their proverbial hip pockets. McCaskill “refuses to abandon (Senate Democratic Leader) Chuck Schumer and her left-wing allies, and we can expect this time to be no different,” Hawley said. “Missourians deserve a senator who will fight for our way of life and support a constitutional conservative like Judge Kavanaugh.” If McCaskill opposes Kavanaugh, Republicans have further claims that she is a liberal in a moderate cloak, an obstructionist to the most consequential pieces of Trump’s agenda. If she votes for Kavanaugh, she risks alienating her left wing while being vulnerable to GOP attacks that she is a political opportunist out to save her seat, since Kavanaugh’s judicial patina may be more conservative than Gorsuch’s. Re p re s e n ta t ive s o f several groups, including NARAL Pro-Choice America and Missouri Health Care for All, held a news conference Tuesday near a sculpture of Dred and Harriet Scott at the Old Courthouse in St. Louis to urge McCaskill and Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., to vote against Kavanaugh. “In recent years, the Supreme Court has been the last defense against attempts to use the legal system to take away

Americans’ health care,” said Erica Williams, a board member of Missouri Health Care for All, referring to the court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, and subsequent Republican efforts chipping away at its basic tenets, including those granting insurance to people with pre-existing conditions. Democratic leaders are not making it any easier on their red-state incumbents, like McCaskill, and Sens. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind. The latter three all voted for Gorsuch, Trump’s first court nominee. Recent polling by the political site Axios showed McCaskill and Hawley essentially tied in Missouri. But Heitkamp and Donnelly, along with Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, trail Republican opponents. The legislative math is this: Democrats can lose only one or two of these senators on the Kavanaugh vote and still maintain any reasonable expectations of defeating his nomination. They can blame previous Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid for this equation. Frustrated by Republican obstruction on Barack Obama court nominees, Reid (whom McCaskill opposed as Senate leader) changed Senate rules on the threshold of approval for federal judges to a simple majority of 51 from 60. The electoral math is this: If Democrats lose one or more of those Senate seats cited above, their chances of taking control of the Senate — and therefore defeating future Trump judicial nominees — go way down. Meanwhile, Democratic Senate leaders keep sending out political dog whistles to red-state Democrats facing election in four months, saying everything from abortion rights to health care is at stake. “Replacing Justice (Anthony) Kennedy’s swing vote with a far-right jurist like Judge Kavanaugh could change the rules in America,” Durbin said. But the choice of Kavanaugh is not a slam-dunk defense for Republicans, either. Despite Trump campaign promises to “drain the swamp” with fresh faces and ideas, Kavanaugh is the consummate Washington and political elite insider. He was born inside the D.C. Beltway, schooled at prestigious Georgetown Prep, got an undergraduate and law degree at Yale, was an assistant to independent counsel Ken Starr’s investigation of President Bill Clinton, worked in Republican legal circles and at the White House under George W. Bush, and has served for 12 years on the District of Columbia’s federal Court of Appeals. How Kavanaugh relates to Missouri’s “way of life” — Hawley’s standard — is an open question in a campaign season that is getting hotter by the day.

also has provided weather reports for the Post-Dispatch since 2013 and has, over the years, worked with several local radio stations. “Good forecasting is more complex than just accepting what a computer model tells you,” Murray wrote in a 2004 guest column in the PostDispatch. “Good forecast-

ing blends the science of meteorology with the art of listening to what your gut tells you, based on experience.” After retiring, Murray said, he plans to spend more time with his family. “I’m not tired, but I am turning 65 this November and would like to discover what it’s like to puddle and have free time with

Kavanaugh begins making his case to senators BY LISA MASCARO AND CATHERINE LUCEY associated Press

WA S H I N GTO N • President Donald

Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, mapped out strategy with Republican leaders Tuesday, launching a fierce confirmation battle that could remake the court for decades and roil the midterm elections in the meantime. Kavanaugh, a favorite of the GOP establishment, first huddled with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Joining him were Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen. Jon Kyl. He also met for roughly 30 minutes with Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which is taking the first close look at the nomination. While Republicans have set a goal of confirming Kavanaugh this fall, Grassley said speed wasn’t the goal. The vetting process, he said, is “going to be thorough and going to be done right.” He did not offer a timeline for confirmation hearings. Republicans have reacted positively to Trump’s pick, but McConnell has little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 Senate majority, but they hope to gain support for Kavanaugh from a handful of Democrats who are up for re-election in states where Trump is popular. McConnell called Kavanaugh “one of the most thoughtful jurists” in the country and blasted Democrats as “eager to try and turn judicial confirmations into something

like political elections.” The GOP leader warned against engaging in “cheap political fear-mongering.” “We’ll hear all kinds of fantastic stories about the pain and suffering that this perfectly qualified, widely respected judge will somehow unleash on America if we

confirm him to the court,” McConnell said. Pence called Kavanaugh a “good man.” Democrats are uniting behind a strategy to turn the confirmation fight into a referendum on conservatives’ efforts to undo abortion access and chip away at other health care protections under the Affordable Care Act. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York is vowing to fight the nomination “with everything I have.” Schumer warned, “In selecting Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump did exactly what he said he would do on the campaign trail — nominate someone who will overturn women’s reproductive rights and strike down health care protections for millions of Americans.” The Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The two have supported access to abortion services. “We’ve got some due diligence that we’ve got to do,” Murkowski said Tuesday. Collins said that Kavanaugh was “clearly qualified” but that other issues, specifically “judicial temperament” and “judicial philosophy,” also would come into play for her. Kavanaugh has made statements in the past about respecting precedent that could help in winning over Murkowski and Collins. In his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal judge, Kavanaugh said, “I

would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully” because it’s “binding precedent” that has been “reaffirmed many times.” Yet there’s little doubt that Kavanaugh, a solidly conservative, politically connected judge, would shift the nation’s highest court further to the right. A product of the Republican legal establishment in Washington, Kavanaugh, 53, is a former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Like Trump’s first nominee last year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of the Affordable Care Act. In a prime-time televised announcement, Trump called Kavanaugh “one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time.” With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative. Kavanaugh, who serves on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, has taken an expansive view of executive power and has favored limits on investigating the president. Speaking at the White House, Kavanaugh pledged to preserve the Constitution and said that “a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law.” Some conservative and libertarianleaning activists were disappointed by the pick and doubted it would provide Republicans with the midterm election boost they are looking for to motivate voters to the polls. “This is going to give heartburn to some conservatives,” said Brian Darling, a former Republican counsel to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. “It’s not the pick conservatives had hoped for,” Darling said. Paul was among some Republican senators who had favored other options. But the senator tweeted after the announcement that he looked forward to meeting Kavanaugh “with an open mind.” Like the current eight justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, spending his undergraduate and law school years at Yale. Since 2006, he has been a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington. He also was a key aide to Kenneth Starr during Starr’s investigation of President Bill Clinton, worked on behalf of George W. Bush’s campaign during the election recount in 2000 and served in the Bush White House. Kavanaugh’s many written opinions provide insight into his thinking and also will be fodder for Senate Democrats who will seek to block his confirmation. He has written roughly 300 opinions as a judge, authored several law journal articles, regularly taught law school classes and spoken frequently in public.

KAVANAUGH SUPREME COURT NOMINATION

5 SENATORS TO WATCH AS FIGHT UNFOLDS Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. McConnell, who has made it a priority to confirm Trump’s judicial selections, stands to burnish his legacy as a savvy political leader by seeing that the president’s choice is successfully seated. McConnell earned Democrats’ unending enmity in 2016 for blocking any consideration of Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama’s pick for a court vacancy. McConnell calls his maneuver, which resulted in Trump’s appointing Neil Gorsuch to the vacancy soon after taking office, the “single most consequential decision I’ve ever made.” Democrats this time bitterly accused McConnell of hypocrisy by moving swiftly to hold hearings and a vote on Trump’s selection. McConnell shot back, noting it’s not a presidential election year. “To my knowledge, nobody on either side has ever suggested before yesterday that the Senate should only process Supreme Court nominations in odd-numbered years,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. Although she’s one of the newest members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Harris promises to be one of the most-watched as the panel holds hearings on the nomination. The former district attorney has already proven herself to be a tough inquisitor, making waves with her questioning of Attorney General Jeff Sessions last year at an Intelligence Committee hearing. Harris’ status as a potential Democratic

BY LESLEY CLARK • McClatchy Washington Bureau

Republicans now have to navigate a razor-slim Senate majority and a temperamental president as the battle to confirm President Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, heads for confirmation hearings. ¶ Because Republicans control 51 of the Senate’s 100 seats, Democrats have few options to prevent or even delay the confirmation. But they face intense pressure from outside groups to block the confirmation. ¶ Democrats from states that Trump won in the 2016 election will be under particular scrutiny as they seek to court Trump voters while not alienating Democrats. ¶ Here’s whom to watch as the Senate battle unfolds: presidential contender in 2020 adds a political undercurrent to everything she does, and a Supreme Court confirmation battle offers the first term senator her biggest national platform since coming to Washington in 2017. Harris’ campaign committee has already sent out two emails encouraging supporters to sign a petition “telling Majority Leader Mitch McConnell we must not vote to fill this seat until Americans have voted at the ballot box” in November. “I will not sit back,” Harris wrote. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. One of 10 Senate Democrats running for re-election in a state that Trump won in 2016, McCaskill will be pressured by both sides, including groups that support abortion rights and note that retiring Justice An-

thony Kennedy was a bulwark against efforts to roll back the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman’s right to an abortion. McCaskill’s likely Republican opponent, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, immediately seized on the news of the vacancy to make it clear that he intends to make the fight for the seat an issue. He’s even challenged McCaskill to debate the vacancy and the court. McCaskill voted against Gorsuch in 2017, but the vote this time will come closer to the election. McCaskill called it “premature” to discuss retiring Kennedy’s replacement until one has been nominated. Several other Democratic senators are likely to find themselves in similar circumstances, including Sen. Bill Nelson,

of Florida, who voted against Gorsuch and said after Kennedy’s retirement that the Senate should not vote until after the election to give voters “the opportunity to express their view.” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. A moderate Republican, Collins, along with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have demonstrated a willingness to go against their party on occasion, and have been longtime defenders of abortion rights. But both voted for Gorsuch and have largely supported Trump’s Cabinet selections. Kavanaugh is not considered as strongly opposed to Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion, as another potential nominee, Amy Coney Barrett. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. Up for re-election in a red-leaning state that Trump easily won in 2016, Manchin and two colleagues in similar straits: Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, all voted to confirm Trump’s first Supreme Court nomination, so the pressure to do so again will be considerable. Trump met with Manchin the day after Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy said he would retire, and Manchin then tweeted that he and the president had a “productive conversation.” Trump has also met with Donnelly and Heitkamp since Kennedy announced he was leaving the court. Those four senators declined an invitation from Trump on Monday to attend the announcement of the nominee at the White House.

SAN DIEGO • Clutching little backpacks, smiling immigrant children were scooped up into their parents’ arms Tuesday as the administration of President Donald Trump rushed to meet the deadline for reuniting dozens of youngsters forcibly separated from their families at the border. In Grand Rapids, Mich., two girls and a boy who had been in temporary foster care were reunited with their Honduran fathers at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement center about three months after they were split up. The three fathers were “just holding them and hugging them and telling them that everything was fine and that they were

never going to be separated again,” said immigration lawyer Abril Valdes. The Justice Department said more than 50 children under age 5 could be back in the arms of their parents by the deadline at the end of the day. It was the largest single effort to date to undo the effects of Trump’s zerotolerance policy of separating families who cross the Mexican border into the U.S. Authorities gave few details on where the reunions would be held, and many were expected to take place in private. In Grand Rapids, the children were “absolutely thrilled to be with their parents again. It’s all confusing to them why there’s so many people here and why there’s so many strangers here, but they know that they’re safe,”

Ever Reyes Mejia, of Honduras, carries his son after they were reunited and released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Tuesday. Two boys and a girl in Grand Rapids were reunited with their fathers after three months apart.

On Tuesday morning, staff members at a nonprofit organization that has been housing many of the youngest children “made sure every backpack was full and every child got a hug and a goodbye,” Southwest Key CEO Juan Sanchez said. Authorities said most of the parents would be released into the U.S. from immigration detention centers, and the children would be freed from government-contracted shelters and foster care. The adults may be required to wear ankle monitors while their cases wind through immigration court, a process that can take years. Thousands of babies, toddlers and older children were separated from their parents at the border

Valdes said outside the ICE offices. Government attorneys, meanwhile, told a federal judge in San Diego that the Trump administration would not meet the deadline for 20 other children under 5 because it needed more time to track down parents who have already been deported or released into the U.S. Asked about the missed deadline, the president said: “Well, I have a solution. Tell people not to come to our country illegally. That’s the solution.” The administration faces a second, bigger deadline — July 26 — to reunite perhaps 2,000 or so older children who were also separated from their families at the border in the past few months.

this spring before Trump reversed course on June 20 amid an international outcry over the images of youngsters in chain-link cages and audio recordings of children crying. Late last month, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego set a 14-day deadline to reunite children under 5 with their parents and a 30-day deadline for older children. In trying to meet the first deadline, the government began with a list of 102 children potentially eligible to be reunited and whittled that to 75 through screening that included DNA testing done by swabbing the inside of the cheek. The government defended its screening, saying it discovered parents

with serious criminal histories and one case of credible child abuse. “Our process may not be as quick as some would like, but there is no question it is protecting children,” said Chris Meekins, a Health and Human Services Department official helping to direct the process. Through DNA testing, five adults who apparently thought they were parents of a child were determined not to be, according to the government. In ordering an end to the separation of families, the president said they should instead be detained together. But the government does not have the room: ICE has three family detention centers with space for 3,000 people, and they are already at or near capacity, though the Trump administration is trying to line up space at military bases. Also, on Monday, a federal judge in Los Angeles emphatically rejected the Trump administration’s efforts to detain immigrant families for an extended period. A 1997 settlement rule, called the Flores Agreement, says that children who cross the border illegally cannot be detained for more than 20 days. U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee ruled that detaining immigrant minors indefinitely in unlicensed facilities “would constitute a fundamental and material breach” of the agreement. She accused the administration of attempting to shift blame to the courts for a crisis of Congress’ and the president’s making.

Pardon of Oregon ranchers Administration slashes grants that sparks concern, jubilation help Americans get ACA coverage trial themselves after an armed standoff at their Nevada ranch in 2014 that was sparked by land-grazing fees. A federal judge in January dismissed the charges against them. Cliven Bundy said he was glad Trump pardoned the Hammonds. “Finally, an elected official did something,” Bundy said. “He can’t give them back their life. They’re going to go back to ranching and put their lives together the best they can.” The Hammonds were being held at a federal detention center south of Los Angeles. It wasn’t immediately clear when they’d be released. The Hammond family, well-known in eastern Oregon, had been embroiled for years in a legal dispute over several fires that damaged federal property. Dwight and his son Steven Hammond were convicted of arson and faced a mandatory minimum sentence of five years, mandated by the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. U.S. District Judge Michael R. Hogan said such a lengthy sentence “would not meet any idea I have of justice, proportionality ... it would be a sentence which would shock the conscience to me.” Hogan instead sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months in prison and Steven Hammond to a year and one day. However, in October 2015, a federal appeals court ordered them to be resentenced to the mandatory

SALEM, ORE. • Two imprisoned ranchers who were convicted in 2012 of intentionally setting fires on public land in Oregon will be freed after President Donald Trump pardoned them on Tuesday. The move by Trump raised concern that others would be encouraged to actively oppose federal control of public land. The imprisonment of Dwight and Steven Hammond prompted the armed occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon in 2016, led by two sons of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. Jamie Rappaport Clark, president of the group Defenders of Wildlife, noted that the Hammonds were convicted of arson, a serious crime. “Whatever prompted President Trump to pardon them, we hope that it is not seen as an encouragement to those who might use violence to seize federal property and threaten federal employees in the West,” Clark said. The dozens of armed people who occupied the refuge near the Hammond ranch for 41 days said the Hammonds were victims of federal overreach. They changed the refuge’s name to the Harney County Resource Center, reflecting their belief that the federal government has only a limited right to own property within a state. Bundy and his sons Ammon and Ryan faced

ple choose and buy ACA health plans or to help steer people with low incomes toward Medicaid. The CMS reprised arguments it made last year that navigators, which operate with the annual grants in the 34 states that rely on the ACA’s federal insurance exchange, have been ineffective and are less important than they once were: “As the exchange has grown in visibility and become more familiar to Americans seeking health insurance, the need for federally funded navigators has diminished.” In listing examples of the kinds of groups eligible to apply for the money that remains, the CMS did not mention the grass-roots nonprofits that have done most of this work. It listed “chambers of commerce, small businesses, trade associations, and faithbased organizations.” Sen. Ron Wyden, Ore., the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, said that urging navigators to promote non-ACA plans amounted to “federally funded fraud: paying groups to sell unsuspecting Americans on junk plans that allow insurance companies to deny care on a whim and charge whatever they want is nothing but a scam.”

WASHINGTON • President Donald Trump’s administration is eliminating most of the funding for grass-roots groups that help Americans get Affordable Care Act insurance and will for the first time urge the groups to promote health plans that bypass the law’s consumer protections and required benefits. The reduction — the second round of cuts that began last summer — will shrink the federal money devoted to the groups, known as navigators, to $10 million for the enrollment period that starts in November, down from $36.8 million. Last August, federal health officials announced that they were reducing the navigators’ aid by 41 percent, from $62.5 million, and slashing by 90 percent a related budget for advertising and other outreach activities to foster ACA enrollment. The new reduction of help for navigators, announced Tuesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, fits within a pattern of moves by the administration to weaken the health care law, which Trump has vowed to demolish. During his first year in office, Trump pressed the Republican-led Congress to repeal much of the 2010 law, one of President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievements. Since Congress was unable to pass such legislation, Trump and his aides have been taking steps to weaken the law through administrative maneuvers.

The cuts to grass-roots groups were announced three days after health officials revealed that, because of a pending lawsuit, they were suspending a program established under the law to even out the burden on health insurers whose customers are especially unhealthy or sick. Trump issued last fall an executive order to try to make it easier for individuals and small businesses to buy health plans that cost less than ACA coverage because they cover fewer services and bypass rules intended to protect people from previous practices in which insurers charged higher prices to women, older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions. Since then, the Labor Department has issued a rule to broaden the use of one such kind of insurance, called “association health plans.” The Department of Health and Human Services is finishing another rule that will lengthen the duration allowed for shortterm insurance plans originally intended as a bridge for people between jobs. Groups that apply for navigator grants will now be expected to encourage clients to buy those two types of insurance. Until now, the grants have been used only to help peo-

minimum. In a statement Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called that decision “unjust.” “The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West,” she said. “Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.” The occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge ended shortly after occupier LaVoy Finicum was shot to death by Oregon State Police at a roadblock, and Ammon and Ryan Bundy were arrested. The brothers and five other defendants were acquitted in 2016 by a federal court jury in Portland on charges stemming from the takeover. The pardons are the latest in a growing list of clemency actions by Trump. He has said he’s considering thousands of other cases —famous and not. Aides say Trump has been especially drawn to cases in which he believes the prosecution may have been politically motivated — a situation that may reflect his own position at the center of the ongoing special counsel investigation into election meddling by Russia. Many people believe the president as sending a signal to former aides and associates caught up in the probe.

$200 billion more planned Trump lands in Europe for in tariffs on Chinese goods meetings with NATO, Putin BY DAVID J. LYNCH AND DANIELLE PAQUETTE Washington Post

WASHINGTON • President Donald

Trump escalated his trade war with China on Tuesday, identifying an additional $200 billion in Chinese products that he intends to hit with import tariffs. The move makes good on the president’s threat to respond to China’s retaliation for the initial U.S. tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, which went into effect on Friday and would eventually place nearly half of all Chinese imports under tariffs. Administration officials said the tariff fight was aimed at forcing China to stop stealing American intellectual property and to abandon policies that in effect force U.S. companies to surrender their trade secrets in return for access to the Chinese market. “These practices are an existential threat to America’s most critical comparative advantage and the future of our economy,” said Robert Lighthizer, the president’s chief trade negotiator. Trump’s latest action will hit consumer products, such as televisions, clothing, bedsheets and air conditioners, which were spared from the first import levies. But the new tariffs will not be imposed until the end of a twomonth public comment period. “This is where a painful situation gets more painful,” said Phil Levy, a former White House economist in the administration of President George W. Bush. Early reaction to the president’s action was unfavorable. “Tonight’s announcement appears reckless and is not a targeted approach,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Beijing has vowed to respond in kind to any U.S. trade action. But China only bought about $135 billion in U.S. goods last year, meaning it will run out of American products to tax before it matches Trump’s latest move. Chinese officials are expected to retaliate in other ways, hitting U.S. firms in China with unplanned inspections, delays in approving financial transactions and other administrative headaches. “The Trump administration is gambling that by wielding such a big club, it will force China to back down,” said Edward Alden, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. “That is almost certainly a serious miscalculation. China is far more likely just to find other ways to hit back in kind. The president has repeatedly de-

scribed his resort to tariffs — which are paid by American importers — as a lever to extract negotiating concessions from U.S. trading partners. A few rounds of talks with Chinese leaders earlier this year made little progress, however, and no plans for additional meetings have been made public. U.S. officials say they remain willing to bargain. But a senior administration official who briefed reporters Tuesday on the condition that he not be identified added: “We do intend to keep the pressure on them.” The Trump administration said it cracked down on China for a range of trade practices involving intellectual property and technology that cost U.S. companies an estimated $50 billion annually. Trump authorized an initial $50 billion in tariffs — including the $34 billion that took effect Friday — to match those losses. China’s retaliation to those measures was “without any international legal basis or justification,” Lighthizer said Tuesday. The senior administration official blamed China for the intensifying commercial conflict between two nations that account for roughly 40 percent of the global economy. “They were the ones who started everything by hurting us,” the official said. Tuesday’s announcement included a 205-page public notice and list of the individual products that could be hit by the new 10 percent tariffs. Lighthizer’s office plans four days of public hearings on the trade actions starting August 20. “Trump’s escalation of trade hostilities makes it increasingly difficult to envision an exit path from an all-out trade war,” said Eswar Prasad, former head of the International Monetary Fund’s China division. “This new round of proposed tariffs takes the fight onto yet another level from which it is going to be difficult for either side to make a graceful retreat.” Beijing, meanwhile, has announced measures to help Chinese companies absorb the U.S. trade blows, pledging to funnel money collected from its own import levies to firms and workers tangled in the escalating trade war. Chinese officials also encouraged businesses to reduce their reliance on U.S. goods, urging them to shift orders for products such as soybeans and automobiles to suppliers in China or countries other than the United States.

Melania Trump and President Donald Trump board Air Force One on Tuesday at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., for a trip to Belgium, England, Scotland and Finland. BY JILL COLVIN AND JONATHAN LEMIRE associated Press

BRUSSELS • With Europe’s wary eyes

upon him, President Donald Trump launched a weeklong trip there on Tuesday with harsh criticism for NATO allies and predicted the “easiest” leg of his journey would be his scheduled sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin. As he departed the White House for a four-nation European tour, Trump did little to reassure allies fretting over the risk of damage he could do to the 69-year-old trans-Atlantic mutual defense pact and his potential embrace of Putin during a summit in Helsinki. Trump said Tuesday he “can’t say right now” if Putin is a friend or foe, but called him a “competitor.” U.S. intelligence experts have concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to boost Trump’s candidacy, and warn of further attempts at interference both in the 2018 midterms and in European elections. Trump arrived in Brussels on the eve of the NATO summit after repeated attacks on the pact. He told reporters in Washington before leaving, “Frankly it helps them a lot more than it helps us.” and then later tweeted from Air Force One that he may demand reimbursements from the European member nations. Trump has been pressing NATO countries to fulfill by 2024 their goal of spending that 2 percent of their gross domestic products on defense. During his presidential campaign, he suggested he might come to the defense of only NATO nations that fulfilled their obligation. And a year ago, in his first visit to its headquarters in Belgium, Trump initially declined to explicitly support the organization’s defense agreement. Trump, who landed in Belgium during the middle of the soccer-mad nation’s World Cup semifinals match, will later head to London, where Prime Minister

Theresa May’s government is in turmoil over her plans for leaving the European Union. European Council President Donald Tusk said Tuesday in a message to Trump that “it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem.” Tusk recalled that the Europeans were spending more than Russia and as much as China on defense. NATO estimates that 15 members, or just over half, will meet the benchmark by 2024 based on current trends. “Getting ready to leave for Europe. First meeting — NATO. The U.S. is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, adding: “Not fair to the U.S. taxpayer. On top of that we lose $151 Billion on Trade with the European Union. Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!” Trump, who has compared the sentiment that underpinned the Brexit vote to leave the EU to his own election, will be making his first presidential trip to Britain at a fraught time for May. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned within hours of each other in protest of her plan. Trump said he might meet with Johnson in the U.K. despite his resignation. Trump’s visit is expected to attract large protests in London and elsewhere in Britain. Trump’s weeklong trip to Europe will continue with a stop in Scotland before ending with a sit-down in Helsinki with Putin. He said that of the high-stakes meetings of his trip, “Putin may be the easiest of them all.” “I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing,” he added. The meeting will be closely watched to see whether Trump will rebuke or embrace Putin.

Offer made to buy the Family Arena By JaCOB BaRKeR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

St. Charles County may sell its 10,000-seat Family Arena after receiving what it says was an unsolicited offer for the county-owned entertainment and sports venue about a month ago. The county issued a request for proposals, or RFP, on Monday. After reviewing an offer submitted for the arena on the banks of the Missouri River, the county decided to “take the next step” and issue the RFP, said Finance Director Bob Schnur. The county’s charter requires it to offer real estate to other potential buyers through an open RFP. Bids are due July 20 at 3 p.m. St. Charles County Executive Steve Ehlmann said at a County Council meeting Monday night that the county would be under no obligation to sell.

“We’ll have an opportunity to see if there’s a market for the Family Arena, and then we will make a decision if that’s in the best interest of the people of St. Charles County to sell or not sell,” he said. Officials declined to name the interested buyer. County Councilman Joe Cronin, R-St. Paul, said it came from an out-of-state company “looking at it as a sports venue.” The $32 million Family Arena opened in 1999. It still had about $15 million in outstanding bond debt at the end of 2016, according to a city financial report. It operated at a loss that year, generating $7.2 million in revenue versus $9.6 million in expenses. Other county funds also chipped in $2.9 million to cover debt service that year. Mark Schlinkmann of the PostDispatch contributed to this report.

Merchants Bridge replacement still on track even without federal grant By MaRK sCHLInKMann St. Louis Post-Dispatch

sT. LOUIs • Replace-

ment of the 128-year-old Merchants Bridge will go ahead as scheduled, with the railroads that own the span stepping up to fund the full $172 million cost. The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis and area elected officials had sought a federal grant to cover a third of the price but learned last month that their application had been rejected. The association, in a news release Tuesday, announced it made the “difficult decision” to proceed without the federal aid because of the span’s deteriorating condition and “the adverse impact a nonfunctioning bridge would have on the nation’s economy.” Asim Raza, a Terminal Railroad executive, added

that “timing is a major factor.” He said design changes and “an aggressive bid environment” resulted in a reduction to $172 million from what had been expected to be an approximate $220 million price. Another factor is the price of steel, which has been rising since President Donald Trump announced tariffs on imports. The bids for the bridge were opened in February before the tariffs were imposed. Raza said the low bidder, Walsh Construction Co. of Chicago, will begin work this fall on the fouryear project. Replacement of the bridge, one of two local spans across the Mississippi River used by railroads, has been designated the metro area’s top infrastructure priority by the St. Louis Regional Freightway.

The freightway serves as a booster organization for the area freight industry. The bridge work, which will be one of the biggest construction projects in the region, will involve 150 direct jobs, the association said. The total increases to 1,100 jobs if suppliers and other companies related to the project are included. The Terminal Railroad Association is owned by five major freight railroads — Union Pacific Railroad, CSX Transportation, Canadian National Railway, Norfolk Southern Corp. and the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway. The association is working with Bank of America Merrill Lynch to finance the project. “This is an infrastructure project with national importance, and we are enthusiastic about its positive impact on local

economic development and job creation,” said John Beardslee, an executive with the bank. The bridge, just north of downtown, was built in 1889 and opened in 1890. Now only one train at a time, traveling 5 mph, can cross the span, because of weight and speed restrictions because of the bridge’s condition. The new bridge, Raza said, will be wide enough to accommodate two 315,000-pound locomotives. When finished, the bridge will help relieve river-crossing bottlenecks. But there will be additional delays during construction as trains at times will be rerouted across the MacArthur Bridge, the other freight span in the downtown area.

BUSINESS DIGEST Lion’s Choice to test breakfast menu • Town and Country-based Lion’s Choice is testing a breakfast menu at its recently opened O’Fallon, Ill., store. The new breakfast menu will include hot sandwiches, baked goods, fresh fruit, juices and coffee from St. Louis-based Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. The company did not disclose how long it would test the breakfast menu at 450 Regency Park Drive before it would make a decision on whether the offerings would be expanded to other Lion’s Choice locations. Lion’s Choice is owned by Claytonbased Millstone Capital Advisors. Southwest Airlines to stop serving peanuts • Southwest Airlines will stop giving away peanuts on flights next month, ending a tradition that goes back decades. The airline said Tuesday it was pulling peanuts from all flights because of concern for passengers with peanut allergies. They will be replaced by pretzels and, on some longer flights, other free snacks. Southwest says the decision follows months of deliberation and isn’t tied to any particular incident involving passengers with allergies. No snack is more closely identified with a U.S. airline. Over the years, Southwest used the humble legume in marketing campaigns. A blog on its website is called Nuts About Southwest. Caleres buys California shoe brand Blowfish Malibu • Claytonbased shoemaker Caleres has acquired a majority stake in Los Angeles-based shoe brand Blowfish Malibu. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Blowfish Malibu brand had trailing 12-month revenue of about $27 million. Caleres Chairman, President and CEO Diane Sullivan said the majority stake would provide Caleres additional exposure to the growing sneaker and casual lifestyle segment of the market. “Since they were formed in 2005, Blowfish Malibu has focused on interpreting current global trends to create the newest and hottest original styles in women’s footwear, with a great value proposition, and we can’t wait to welcome the team

to Caleres,” she said in a statement. Caleres, formerly known as Brown Shoe Co., reported a $17.2 million profit in its first fiscal quarter on sales of $632.1 million. Roundup lawsuits to proceed to trial • Hundreds of lawsuits alleging Roundup weedkiller caused cancer cleared a big hurdle Tuesday when a U.S. judge in San Francisco ruled that cancer victims and their families could present expert testimony linking the herbicide to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria said evidence that the active ingredient in Roundup — glyphosate — can cause the disease seemed “rather weak.” Still, the opinions of three experts linking glyphosate and non-Hodgkin lymphoma were not “junk science” that should be excluded from a trial, the judge ruled. The lawsuits say agrochemical giant Monsanto, which makes Roundup, long knew about the cancer risk but failed to warn people. The ruling allows the claims to move forward, though the judge warned it could be a “daunting challenge” to convince him to allow a jury to hear testimony that glyphosate was responsible for individual cancer diagnoses. Many government regulators have rejected a link between cancer and glyphosate. Monsanto has vehemently denied such a connection, saying hundreds of studies have established that the chemical is safe. The company is facing hundreds of lawsuits in state and federal courts that claim otherwise. Chhabria is presiding over more than 400 of them. In response to Chhabria’s ruling, Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge noted the judge excluded some of the plaintiffs’ experts and called the opinions of those he is allowing to testify “shaky.” “Moving forward, we will continue to defend these lawsuits with robust evidence that proves there is absolutely no connection between glyphosate and cancer,” Partridge said in a statement. “We have sympathy for anyone suffering from cancer, but the science clearly shows that glyphosate was not the cause.” From staff and wire reports

Former executives of ITT settle federal fraud charges Officials at for-profit college were accused of deceiving investors BY DANIELLE DOUGLAS-GABRIEL Washington Post

Former top executives at ITT Educational Services, the parent company of defunct ITT Technical Institute, have settled fraud cases with the Securities and Exchange Commission, avoiding a trial slated to begin this week. A judgment order entered Friday puts to rest civil fraud charges filed in 2015 against former ITT chief executive Kevin Modany and former chief financial officer Daniel Fitzpatrick for allegedly deceiving investors about high rates of late payments and defaults on student loans backed by the company. Neither Modany nor Fitzpatrick admitted or denied wrongdoing, but they agreed to pay penalties of $200,000 and $100,000, respectively. Both are barred from serving as officers and directors of public companies for five years. The agreement arrives nearly a year after SEC commissioners rejected an earlier settlement with the executives. “Holding individuals accountable — particularly senior executives — is a critical focus of our enforcement program,” said Stephanie Avakian, co-director of the SEC’s division of enforcement, in a statement. “These settlements, entered into on the eve of trial after years of litigation, reflect our commitment to this accountability.” Attorneys for Modany did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Fredric D. Firestone, one of the attorneys at McDermott Will & Emery representing Fitzpatrick, said his client “is pleased to put this matter behind him.” In 2015, the SEC accused ITT’s top brass of making secret

payments on delinquent accounts to delay defaults instead of disclosing the tens of millions of dollars in impending losses to investors. Executives assured investors in conference calls the programs were performing well, while ITT’s obligations to pay out on soured loans began to balloon, according to the complaint. ITT created two in-house student-loan programs as private lenders retreated from the market at the height of the 2008 financial crisis. Banks stopped extending credit to students at for-profit colleges because of their historically high default rates. To get investors to finance the in-house loans, ITT offered a guarantee to limit the risk of students not repaying the debt. If a certain percentage of loans soured, the company agreed to cover the principal, interest and fees. Because ITT kept the loan programs off its balance sheet, investors did not have direct information about the performance of the debt. When students began defaulting en masse around 2011, all investors could rely on was the company’s word, according to the SEC complaint. The following fall, ITT paid $8 million as guarantee obligations came due, but executives allegedly failed to inform investors the company was facing an additional $30 million in payments at the end of that year. The SEC claims the company used accounting tricks to hide the impending financial trouble. It was not until 2014 that ITT reported more than $60 million in charges related to its loan programs, a revelation that sent its stock plummeting. At the time the SEC charges were filed, ITT issued a statement denouncing the allega-

tions and insisting the evidence did not support the regulators’ claims. The company said it consulted with an independent auditor to confirm its accounting was appropriate. The company ceased operations at all of its ITT Technical Institutes in 2016, including two campuses in the St. Louis area, after the Education Department curtailed its access to federal loans and grants when an accrediting body threatened to pull the school’s accreditation amid mounting lawsuits and investigations. Days after shutting down 137 campuses and leaving 35,000 students and 8,000 employees in the lurch, the company filed for bankruptcy protection to liquidate its business. That bankruptcy case continues to drag on as creditors, federal regulators, state attorneys general, jilted employees and students lay claim to the remaining assets. Earlier this year, a federal judge recognized a $1.5 billion claim ITT Tech students, who attended the school between 2006 and 2016, asserted against the company for breach of contract and consumer protection violations. That means if there is money in the estate to pay unsecured claims — debts that are not assured payment — at the end of the bankruptcy, students would receive a share. “It is outrageous that the executives get to walk away with a sweetheart deal from the SEC while ITT students will be lucky to get a sliver of justice in ITT’s bankruptcy and the Department of Education refuses to cancel students’ fraudulent debt,” said Toby Merrill, director of the Project on Predatory Student Lending at Harvard Law School and an attorney representing the students in the bankruptcy case.

critics charge that Corps projects could actually be worsening the effects of flooding. If that’s the case, it means that your taxpayer dollars are going toward projects that could send flood waters into your house or farm property. In other words, you get to pay to have your livelihood destroyed and your family endangered. It only seems logical to subject these projects to independent scrutiny before embarking on more of them. The Corps recommended in May 2017 proceeding full speed ahead with a 15-year construction plan to bolster the morethan 1,375 river-training structures already installed in the middle-Mississippi region. But the National Wildlife Federation, among other groups, favors inserting wording into the 2018 Water Resources Development Act imposing a moratorium on some projects pending a full-blown independent study by the National Academy of Sciences. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., is opposed to the insert, and Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill has not taken a clear stand. A full Senate vote on the act is imminent.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR REAdERS Keep what’s working in the Affordable Care Act

Image of the cave mirrors our political climate

As a registered nurse in St. Louis, I treat many patients with pre-existing conditions — from asthma and arthritis to diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Before the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies were allowed to discriminate against these patients, charging them exorbitant premiums or denying them coverage altogether. That’s why I’m alarmed that leaders in Washington, D.C., and here in Missouri are pursuing policies that would eliminate the ACA’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions and go back to letting insurance companies discriminate. Instead of coming together to fix what’s broken about the Affordable Care Act, they are trying to scrap it altogether. The Affordable Care Act has benefited millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions — including many of my patients — who now have access to affordable health insurance. That means they can afford to see a doctor when they get sick, and access the preventive care and treatment to help them live longer, healthier and more productive lives. Without question, the Affordable Care Act has flaws. But why don’t our representatives come together to fix what’s broken and keep what’s working? I took an oath to do no harm. If only our elected representatives were held to the same standard. Emma Spencer • St. Louis

What fascinates us about a cave rescue? Might it be because we ourselves need to be rescued? For me, the image of a cave — dark, dank, foreboding, with oxygen being sucked out — mirrors our current political climate. Here the features of racism, sexism, lies and an offensive against the poor and immigrants have created an atmosphere that is poisoning the environment of freedom, where the common good and the dignity of the human person are of highest value. As we witnessed the footage of Thai youth struggling toward freedom in their journey toward the light, so must we come out of our caves into the light of consciousness. May we be enlightened enough and have enough choices to come out of the cave. Sister Denise Sausville • Kirkwood

Her reviews, interviews and thought pieces were intelligent, educated, insightful, compassionate and passionate. They were always written with wit and style. There are not many writers who accomplish that and certainly not with the frequency of Newmark. Her breadth of knowledge about theater and her depth of feeling will be very hard to replace. Through the years, I have enjoyed her family columns and her cultural commentary through fashion. As an avid theatergoer, I have appreciated the caring attention she has given to theater companies large and small, and all the actors and behind-the-scenes people.

Establish a law to protect unborn babies Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, in reference to Roe v. Wade, stated that she would not support any judge nominated to the Supreme Court who would attempt to overthrow already established law. Since then the phrase “established law” has been repeated several times regarding abortion. There has been an established law carved in stone thousands of years ago that says, “Thou shalt not kill.” This week in the same newspaper is the story of hundreds of people from all over the world jeopardizing their own lives in Thailand attempting to save the lives of 12 boys and their coach, while some American women here are frantically concerned that they may lose their perceived right to kill their unborn babies.

Need genuine solutions to poverty from honest leaders I have read with dismay articles criticizing the ceremony at the Gateway Arch. The poor people living in St. Louis continue to be held hostage in the vise grips of self-proclaimed leaders seeking notoriety and political power for self-gain. Such leaders persistently focus people’s attention on their own victimization and poor circumstances, and perpetuate the notion that only people of their same race represent their best interests. That ill-conceived message fuels racism and segregation. No one needs to tell a poor man he is poor, but how to overcome that poverty; and no one needs to tell an unemployed man he has no job, but how he can get one. There is a void of genuine leaders willing to preach the need for empowerment through education. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed, “The urgency of the hour” calls for leaders who are not in love with money and publicity, but those “who can subject their particular egos to the greatness of the cause.” That message is relevant to the ceremony held at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. A picture is worth a thousand words. Photo ops can represent tokenism and symbolism, not genuine solutions. We are facing great technological changes and unprecedented problems with many having greater effects on the poor. We need honest leaders to proclaim, as King did, individuals’ need “to do a good job, irrespective of race, and to do it so well that nobody can do it better.” This powerful message, and the only true solution, can never be conveyed in a simple photo op.

No excuse for forgetting black St. Louis

Remembering city’s struggle and violence should be a central element of its urban fabric. BY WALTER JOHNSON

History happens twice they say: once tragedy, then again as farce. Never more so than under the Arch. In July 1964, Percy Green II climbed the Arch to protest the all-white work crews building it. In July this year, an all-white ribbon-cutting ceremony suggested that the lesson of Green’s protest continues to elude many. Whether one views the allwhite opening as a misstep or as a symptom of a deeper malignancy, there should be no excuse for forgetting black St. Louis while memorializing the city’s past. Some reminders are in order. The African-American history of St. Louis goes well beyond Dred Scott. Too often it has been buried by the city’s efforts to reconstruct itself as a touristfriendly destination city. Not far from the site of the Arch, in the antebellum period, sat the city’s largest slave pen, owned by the notorious trader Bernard Lynch. Thousands of enslaved men, women and children passed through its gates on their way “down the river.” Among them was William Wells Brown, the first AfricanAmerican novelist. Of the slave market in St. Louis, Brown wrote, “I shall never forget a scene which took place in the city. A man and his wife were brought for sale. The man was first put up, and sold to the highest bidder. The wife was next

ordered to ascend the platform. She slowly obeyed the order. The auctioneer commenced, and soon several hundred dollars were bid. Her cheeks were wet with tears.” The remnants of Lynch’s slave pen today lie beneath Ballpark Village. No marker memorializes those who were sold there. Several blocks to the north and a bit to the west lies the site of what was arguably the first lynching in U.S. history. On April 28, 1836, Francis McIntosh, a free black man, was walking along the levee when he was accosted and taken into custody by a pair of policemen. There was a struggle, and one of the officers was killed. McIntosh briefly escaped before being taken into custody and placed in a cell. A group of white men soon broke McIntosh out, and dragged him up Chestnut Street. They tied him to a tree, built a fire beneath his feet, and burned him to death. Though the members of the mob were well-known to many observers, no one was ever indicted for the murder. The lynching of McIntosh occasioned Abraham Lincoln’s famous 1838 “Lyceum Address,” which remains one of the most pointed and eloquent defenses of the rule of law in American history. Worse than the fact that McIntosh had been arrested without cause, for Lincoln, was the fact that he had been put to death by a mob without a trial. “This mobocratic spirit,” he

wrote, would cause best Americans to lose faith in their government. “Whenever the vicious portion of the population shall

be permitted to gather in bands of hundreds ... and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure and with impunity, depend

on it: this government cannot last.” For Lincoln the key to preserving political liberty was historical memory. As the Revolutionary generation died, he argued, the values they had fought for were in danger of being forgotten. To replenish the nation’s commitment to the rule of law, Lincoln argued, required daily remembrance: “Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap — let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs.” Reminders everywhere. On the corner of Seventh and Chestnut, where Francis McIntosh suffered and died, there sits today a Hooters. Recent history — the uprising in Ferguson, the protests that followed the acquittal of Jason Stockley — has presumably made many whites wary of reopening the city’s troubled racial past. But remembrance of the city’s long history of struggle and violence should be a central element of its urban fabric. There are plenty of obvious places to begin: with Percy Green II at the base of the Arch; with the un-numbered martyrs at the corner of Broadway and Clark, and with Francis McIntosh at the corner of Chestnut and Seventh.

SUPREME COURT

The people’s court and the people’s rights

Democracy would be healthier if court descended from Olympus

Personal liberty must be the starting point in confirming a Supreme Court justice.

Culture-war context of nominations has distorted a serious discussion of constitutional interpretation.

BY GREGORY P. MAGARIAN

During Supreme Court nomination fights — like the current battle over President Donald Trump’s new Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh — we hear a lot about how judges should interpret the Constitution. Conservatives argue that the Constitution’s words have an original meaning, frozen in time. Progressives argue that the Constitution’s meaning should evolve with the changing times. But no argument is possible about how judges actually have interpreted the Constitution. The evolutionary approach has prevailed, throughout our history — especially as to constitutional rights. Our evolved Constitution now contains essential protections for our autonomy and dignity, like the right to make decisions about your own body and to marry whom you choose. Judges have found those personal liberty rights in the Constitution for one reason: because we, the people, have decided the Constitution should protect those rights. Now, as the Senate considers Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, we must make sure that the Supreme Court will continue to protect the people’s rights. The Supreme Court has tremendous power, but it isn’t some remote super-government. It isn’t The Great and Powerful Oz, deciding at its whim what constitutional rights exist. Rather, constitutional rights develop through an ongoing, backand-forth conversation between the court and the people. Sometimes the court has recognized constitutional rights, only to change its tune when the people tell the court it was wrong. In the mid-19th century, the court decided that slaveholders had a constitutional right to own people as property. That decision helped to spark the Civil War. Eventually the court admitted its awful mistake. In the early 20th century, the court decided that businesses had a constitutional right not to be regulated for the public good. That decision helped to cause the Great Depression. Once again, the court reversed course. Other constitutional rights have stood the test of time. In 1973, the Supreme Court held in Roe v. Wade that states may not ban abortion. We all know that abortion remains a wrenching political issue. We still fight sharp political battles about how states may regulate abortion. But through all the political turmoil, a strong majority of Americans has held firm to the view that Roe v. Wade is right: No state should have the power to make abortion illegal. Because of that public consensus, the court has reaffirmed Roe. More recently, the court held that samesex couples have the same right to marry as do opposite-sex couples. That right may seem less firm, because it hasn’t existed as long. However, a strong public consensus caused the court to decide as it did. Just 25 years ago, few people thought about a right to same-sex marriage. By the time the

issue reached the Supreme Court, a wave had swept through public opinion. Today MICHAEL GERSON a large, ever-growing majority supports Washington Post same-sex couples’ right to marry.

has left them without a comprehensive vision of human dignity and vulnerable to the single-issue appeal of political con men. It is neither thoughtful nor faithful to associate Christianity with a leader’s racism, sexism and cruelty as long as he chooses judges from the Federalist Society list. But the culture-war context of Supreme Court nominations has also distorted a serious discussion of constitutional interpretation. Conservative thinkers generally advocate originalism and judicial restraint. We have a written Constitution for a reason: to tie our political practice to an impartial text. We make the interpreters of the Constitution subject to the words of the Constitution. And the principle of self-government requires judicial deference to democratic choices, except when constitutional rights are violated. But these principles come with a few caveats: First, it is not meaningful to talk of a simple or single meaning for a document that resulted from difficult compromises. The Constitution was arguably ratified because different people understood its language in different ways. The Federalist Papers were written because the constitutional interpretation of the Federalists was not universally held. What did “to regulate commerce” mean to the Founders? Their answer would probably come in the form of a good debate. Judges must sometimes rely on the plain meaning of words, which define a margin of honest interpretation rather than requiring a single interpretation. Second, America effectively had two sets of Founders: those who wrote and approved the Constitution and those who wrote and approved the 14th Amendment, which corrected a near-fatal flaw in the document. True originalism must take seriously that, in the 19th century, the ideals of the Declaration of Independence invaded the Constitution and changed the meaning of the American experiment. Third, the principles of originalism and of deference to democracy are sometimes in tension. If a judge feels the law has strayed badly from constitutional principles, he or she will be less likely to embrace judicial modesty. This will, on occasion, activate even the least activist judges. And it means we often apply the doctrine of deference more vigorously to protect favored outcomes. Choosing the right person to prudently navigate these challenges is massively important. But our democracy would probably be healthier if the stakes were lower — if difficult issues were returned to the democratic realm and the Supreme Court descended from Olympus.

U.K. prime minister tries to stem Cabinet exodus as Brexit nears BY JILL LAWLESS associated Press

LONDON • British Prime Minister Theresa May insisted Tuesday that her plan to retain close ties with the European Union “absolutely keeps faith” with voters’ decision to leave the bloc, as she tried to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit. May has spent the past few days fighting for her political life as first Brexit Secretary David Davis and then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson quit, saying May’s plans for future relations with the European Union did not live up to their idea of Brexit. On Tuesday, two more lawmakers followed them out the door. Johnson sent an incendiary resignation letter on Monday accusing May of killing “the Brexit dream” and flying “white flags” of surrender in negotiations with the European Union. May, who has tried to keep calm and carry on, replaced Johnson with a loyalist, former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, and gave Davis’ job to Dominic Raab in a bid to shore up her authority. She held a meeting of her new Cabinet on Tuesday before attending a Western Balkans summit in London with other European leaders. May’s plan seeks to keep the U.K. and the EU in a free-trade zone for goods, and commits Britain to maintaining the same rules as the bloc for goods and agricultural products. At a news conference on Tuesday, May

maintained that her plan “absolutely keeps faith with the vote of the British people,” ending free movement of people from the EU, taking Britain out of European court jurisdiction and saving the “vast sums of money” that Britain pays as a member. “But we will do this in a way which will be a smooth and orderly Brexit, a Brexit that protects jobs, protects livelihoods and also meets our commitment to no hard border” between the U.K.’s Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland, she said. Many pro-Brexit lawmakers are furious at a plan they say will stop Britain forging an independent economic course. Two Conservative lawmakers, Maria Caulfield and Ben Bradley, quit as vice-chairs of the party on Tuesday over opposition to May’s proposals. Bradley called on May to “deliver Brexit in spirit as well as in name.” But senior pro-Brexit Cabinet ministers said they supported May and would not resign. Asked if he was planning to quit, environment Secretary Michael Gove said “absolutely not.” Conservative lawmaker Michael Fallon, an ally of May, dismissed Johnson’s “Brexit dream” rallying cry. “Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world,” he said. Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 percent of Conservative lawmakers — currently 48 — write a letter requesting one. Fallon warned Conservative rebels that a challenge to May’s leadership is “the last

thing we need.” Two years after Britain voted 52 percent to 48 percent to leave the European Union, May is trying to find a middle way between two starkly differing views — within her party and the country — of the U.K.’s relationship with Europe. Pro-Europeans want to retain close economic ties with the bloc and its market of 500 million people, while some Brexit supporters want a clean break to make it possible to strike new trade deals around the world. The British government is due to publish a detailed version of its plans on Thursday. The EU says it will respond once it has seen the details. “It’s a good thing that we have proposals on the table,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at the Balkans summit in London. She said the 27 other EU nations would “table a common response to those proposals.” The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a NATO summit starting Wednesday and a U.K. visit by U.S. President Donald Trump beginning Thursday. The trans-Atlantic relationship has had some awkward moments since Trump’s election. He has criticized May over her response to terrorism and approach to Brexit, and infuriated many in Britain when he retweeted a far-right group. Asked Tuesday whether May should be replaced as prime minister, Trump said it was “up to the people, not up to me.” “I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship,” he said.

While President Donald Trump regularly berates Mexico for “doing nothing” to stop illegal migration, behind the scenes the two governments are considering a deal that could drastically curtail the cross-border migration flow. The proposal, known as a “safe third country agreement,” would potentially require asylum-seekers transiting through Mexico to apply for protection in that nation rather than in the United States. It would allow U.S. border guards to turn back such asylum-seekers at border crossings and quickly return to Mexico anyone who has already entered illegally seeking refuge, regardless of their nationality. U.S. officials believe this type of deal would discourage many Central American families from trying to reach the United States. The proposal has divided the Mexican government and alarmed human rights activists who maintain that many of the migrants are fleeing gang violence and could be exposed to danger in Mexico. The plan is likely to be discussed this week at high-level meetings in Latin America. Newborn dies after tornado strikes North Dakota town • A newborn baby has died after a tornado swept through a northwestern North Dakota town. McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger said the week-old boy died from injuries sustained Tuesday morning as the twister hit the Prairie View RV Park in Watford City. The sheriff said the family’s trailer was flipped in the storm. More than two dozen other people were injured, at least three critically. Alabama inmates seek death by nitrogen • A lawsuit challenging Alabama’s lethal injection process took an unexpected turn Tuesday after eight inmate plaintiffs asked to be put to death by the state’s new execution method: inhaling nitrogen gas. The Alabama attorney general’s office and lawyers for inmates submitted a joint motion Tuesday to dismiss the litigation. Lawyers said the inmates’ claims challenging the state’s lethal injection process as inhumane are now moot, “because their executions will be carried out at the appropriate time by nitrogen hypoxia.” NTSB prods railroads on Amtrak crashes • Federal safety investigators pressed railroad officials Tuesday on passenger safety in the wake of two fatal Amtrak crashes in Washington state and South Carolina. Executives from Amtrak and CSX told the National Transportation Safety Board they were taking aggressive steps to identify and tackle problems. But NTSB board member Earl Weener said the safety efforts resembled a game of “whack a mole,” where officials chase problems rather than get ahead of them.

WORLD DIGEST United Kingdom fines Facebook $663,000 over data breach

of talks in neighboring Saudi Arabia on countering threats from Iran and starving it of oil revenue.

The chairman of the U.K. Parliament’s media committee said the government office that investigated the Cambridge Analytica scandal had fined Facebook $663,000 for failing to safeguard users’ data. Damian Collins said the Information Commissioner’s Office concluded that Facebook “contravened the law by failing to safeguard people’s information.” Collins said Wednesday that the company “should now make the results of their internal investigations known to the ICO, our committee and other relevant investigatory authorities.”

Mexico’s incoming leader pleased by silence on wall • Leftist Mexican Presidentelect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is enjoying a bit of a honeymoon with U.S. President Donald Trump, and he was effusive Tuesday in praising the U.S. leader’s restraint in not bringing up his proposed border wall. Instead of confrontational talk, Lopez Obrador will get a visit by Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also will be at the meeting at Lopez Obrador’s campaign headquarters.

Iran uses embassies to plot terrorism, Pompeo says • U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Iran on Tuesday of using its embassies to plot terrorist attacks in Europe and warned Tehran that its actions have “a real high cost” after it threatened to disrupt Mideast oil supplies. Pompeo’s comments came during a short trip to the United Arab Emirates, a staunch U.S. ally, and as senior U.S. officials were wrapping up three days

Tesla to build factory in Shanghai • Electric car producer Tesla will build its first factory outside the United States in Shanghai under an agreement signed Tuesday, becoming the first wholly foreign-owned automaker in China. Tesla Inc.’s announcement comes amid mounting U.S.-Chinese tension over technology and follows Beijing’s promise in April to end restrictions that required foreign automakers to work through local partners.

Cuba to OK private restaurants • A 16-month freeze on new private restaurants and bed-and-breakfasts will end in December when Cuba’s communist government implements new regulations meant to prevent tax evasion and the accumulation of wealth, state media said Tuesday. Cuban officials said the private sector had become a necessary part of the island’s statedominated economy but required tighter controls. A surge in tourism after the 2015 normalization of U.S.-Cuba relations fueled the rise of a prosperous Cuban upper-middle class whose businesses often depended on small-scale bribery and the purchase of goods stolen from state-run enterprises.

Flynn not lobbying, attorneys assert • Attorneys for Michael Flynn say the former national security adviser has not joined a new lobbying firm, saying a statement announcing the new position appears to have been released as “the result of a misunderstanding.” The firm, Stonington Global, released a statement attributed to Flynn in which he said he would be using his experience to help companies and governments “enhance the goals of freedom and liberty.” But Flynn’s attorneys, Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony, said: “Gen. Flynn has not joined Stonington and did not personally issue any public statement.” The announcement was made the same day Flynn appeared in court as a judge considers when to sentence him for lying to the FBI about past lobbying work.

Pact between Ethiopia, Eritrea wins U.N. praise • The U.N. Security Council said the peace declaration signed by Ethiopia and Eritrea after 20 years as enemies “represents a historic and significant development with far-reaching positive consequences for the Horn of Africa and beyond.” Eritrea gained independence from Ethiopia in 1993 after a 30-year guerrilla war, but their border remained contested, and about 80,000 people died in a 1998-2000 border war.

Temple U. business school head ousted over fake results • The dean of Temple University’s business school has been forced out over falsified data submitted to rankings organizations about its online master’s program. Temple President Richard Englert said that Moshe Porat was asked to resign on Monday. Porat refused, but the university said he no longer headed the school. He retains a teaching appointment. In January, the Fox School of Business reported that Temple had submitted inaccurate data to U.S. News & World Report. The publication removed the school’s No. 1 online MBA program ranking for 2018. Investigators found the school had reported inaccurate data to U.S. News for multiple years.

Hundreds draped in see-through fabric in Australian photo shoot ASSOCIATED PRESS

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA • Up to 400

people stripped and then draped themselves in see-through red fabric in a Melbourne city park lot on Monday to pose for U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick. A supermarket had initially refused the photographer renowned for large-scale nude crowd shots around the world permission to use its rooftop car park in the inner suburb of Prahran.

But the retailer relented in the face of a public backlash, with 12,000 people applying to take part. Chloe Horler said she felt lucky to be included among the hundreds of men and women who stripped in the 48-degree morning chill in Australia’s second-largest city. “The human body is a beautiful thing. A lot of the time it is really sexualized and it doesn’t have to be,” Horler said after the 15-minute shoot.

The Blues spoke with Patrick Maroon during the “talking period” in late June leading up to the start of free agency. But after a wild-and-crazy July 1, in which the team added Ryan O’Reilly, David Perron, Tyler Bozak and Chad Johnson — at a cost of $18.25 million against next season’s salary cap — it appeared Maroon was a dead deal. Instead it became a done deal Tuesday when Maroon signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal to play hockey in his hometown. When the initial wave of NHL

free agency was finished early last week, it didn’t include Maroon, the St. Louis native and Oakville High product. But general manager Doug Armstrong kept chipping away. He had coach Mike Yeo talk to Maroon. Several Blues players called Maroon to give him an overview of the team and discuss how Maroon would fit in with the group. The Blues stated their case, made their offer and then sat back and waited. Along the way, Maroon switched agents, which probably delayed his

CHICAGO • For those who had wondered about the effort of Cardinals right fielder Dexter Fowler, including a prominent front office executive, it must be reported that Fowler was seen jogging while running the bases Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. From home to first, he ran hard enough. But he loped from first to second. And second to third. And third to home, with a sideways stutter step thrown in, for good meaCARDINALS 14 s u re . A n d not?

B5 White Sox lefthander Hector Santiago, the fourth pitcher Chicago employed in a ghastly seven-run, three-hit sixth inning. The White Sox cooperated handsomely by walking four hitters and throwing a wild pitch, and their catcher contributed a passed ball in a frame that made All-Star Miles Mikolas’s path to his 10th win a lot easier in a 14-2 Cardinals romp. It was the Cardinals’ most lopsided win of a cockeyed season. Fowler hadn’t always helped Mikolas. His first grand slam had come off the Cardinals’ righthander on Sept. 1, 2012 when Mikolas toiled for San Diego and Fowler played for Colorado.

“This was a really good fit for him on a one-year deal, to come into a team where he wants to prove himself and we want to prove ourselves.”

ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA • France’s defense made the difference — on both sides of the field. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris kept out the shots and defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal with a header on a corner kick. It was France’s back line, not its slick attackers, that carried the team to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium on Tuesday. “This is why football is magical, it gives everyone emotions. It’s tough not to give in to euphoria, but it’s a fantastic moment,” Lloris said. “We feared them on set pieces, but in the end it was us scoring from one.” See CUP • Page B7 ASSOCIATED PRESS

But after a wild-and-crazy July 1, in which the team added Ryan O’Reilly, David Perron, Tyler Bozak and Chad Johnson — at a cost of $18.25 million against next season’s salary cap — it appeared Maroon was a dead deal. Instead it became a done deal Tuesday when Maroon signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal to play hockey in his hometown. When the initial wave of NHL

free agency was finished early last week, it didn’t include Maroon, the St. Louis native and Oakville High product. But general manager Doug Armstrong kept chipping away. He had coach Mike Yeo talk to Maroon. Several Blues players called Maroon to give him an overview of the team and discuss how Maroon would fit in with the group. The Blues stated their case, made their offer and then sat back and waited. Along the way, Maroon switched agents, which probably delayed his

Fowler’s grand slam keys rout

CHICAGO • For those who had wondered about the effort of Cardinals right fielder Dexter Fowler, including a prominent front office executive, it must be reported that Fowler was seen jogging while running the bases Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. From home to first, he ran hard enough. But he loped from first to second. And second to third. And third to home, with a sideways stutter step thrown in for good meaCARDINALS 14 s u re . A n d not?

The White Sox cooperated handsomely by walking four hitters, and throwing a wild pitch, and their catcher contributed a passed ball in a frame that made All-Star Miles Mikolas’s path to his 10th win a lot easier in a 14-2 Cardinals romp. It was the Cardinals’ most lopsided win of a cockeyed season. Fowler hadn’t always helped Mikolas.

ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA • France’s defense made the difference — on both sides of the field. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris kept out the shots and defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal with a header on a corner kick. It was France’s back line, not its slick attackers, that carried the team to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium on Tuesday. “This is why football is magical, it gives everyone emotions. It’s tough not to give in to euphoria, but it’s a fantastic moment,” Lloris said. “We feared them on set pieces, but in the end it was us scoring from one.” See CUP • Page B7 ASSOCIATED PRESS

DIGEST Lightning sign Kucherov to eight-year extension

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed forward Nikita Kucherov to an eight-year contract extension worth an average of $9.5 million in salary and annual bonuses. The team announced the deal Tuesday. The 25-year-old would have been a restricted free agent next summer with one year left on a deal that will pay him nearly $4.8 million for the 2018-19 season. Now he is set to stay with the Lightning through the 2026-27 as the team’s highest-paid player once the extension kicks in after next year. “I’m truly grateful to sign this contract extension to keep me in Tampa for another eight seasons,” Kucherov said in a statement. “I’d like to thank the Lightning organization and all of the fans for the support since making the Bay Area my home.” The two-time All-Star had 39 goals and 100 points with a plus-15 rating last season. He was third in the NHL in points, sixth in assists and tied for ninth in goals. He averaged 19:49 in ice time to lead all forwards for the Lightning, who lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals to Washington. Woman assaulted at McCoy home • Police acknowledged Tuesday that a woman was assaulted during a home invasion at a suburban Atlanta house owned by NFL star LeSean McCoy, hours after graphic posts on social media accused the Buffalo Bills running back of bloodying his former girlfriend. One female was treated and released from the hospital, while another sustained a minor injury during a targeted invasion early Tuesday, Milton police said in a release responding to requests by The Associated Press. McCoy denied allegations posted on social media earlier in the day accusing him of hurting his former girlfriend. Police said it’s not clear how many suspects were involved, but one demanded specific items from one of the women in the home. Police did not release any further details. Other NFL news • Prosecutors say former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner has been charged with trying to kill his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her Pomona, Calif., home. Browner, who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, was arrested Sunday east of Los Angeles. Arraignment is scheduled for July 30. ... The NFL Players Association filed a grievance with the league on Tuesday challenging its national anthem policy limiting player protests. The filing will be heard by an independent arbitrator, an NFLPA spokesman said. Kermit Washington gets six years in prison • Former NBA player Kermit Washington, 66, was sentenced to six years in federal prison for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in charity donations on vacations, shopping sprees and plastic surgery for his girlfriend. Washington played for several NBA teams in the 1970s and 1980s.

Serena Williams returns the ball to Italy’s Camila Giorgi in a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory on Tuesday. ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON • There are moments in which nothing at all seems different about Serena Williams, moments such as when she unleashed a 109 mph service winner to even her Wimbledon quarterfinal at a set apiece, leaned forward and yelled, loudly as can be, “Come on!” Or when, about 10 minutes later, she stretched for a lunging backhand winner to break at love and take control of the third set, then raised a fist, figuring a berth in her 11th semifinal at the All England Club was close at hand. And after Williams came up with a comeback to beat 52ndranked Camila Giorgi of Italy 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Tuesday, she headed off Centre Court with her right index finger aloft. Yes, no matter what the rankings or seedings say, no matter how long she was away, Williams still looks capable of playing like someone who’s No. 1, just about 10 months after having a baby. “Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise. To be here. To be

in the semifinals. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals,” Williams said. “But when it actually happens, it still is, like, ‘Wow, this is really happening.’” So what if she’s still getting her game in gear? So what if Giorgi wouldn’t seem to miss while moving out to that early lead? Williams never was worried about losing. “It’s weird. Sometimes I feel, ‘Man, I’m in trouble.’ Sometimes I feel, ‘I can fight.’ For whatever reason, today I was so calm,” said 36-year-old American, who has been wearing compression leggings as a precaution after a blood-clot scare following her daughter’s birth. “Even when I was down the first set, I thought, ‘Well, she’s playing great. I’m doing a lot of the right things.’” Asked whether that might represent a new way of looking at things, Williams smiled. “No. Just to be clear, that was just today. I mean, I’m hoping this is, like, a new thing,” she said. “Honestly, I highly doubt it.”

Next up for Williams as she tries to earn her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall will be a match Thursday against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 winner against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. The other semifinal is No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany vs. No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. Kerber needed seven match points to close out No. 14 Daria Kasatkina of Russia 6-3, 7-5 at Centre Court, while Ostapenko defeated 2014 Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 7-5, 6-4 at a windy No. 1 Court. In men’s play, Juan Martin del Potro defeated Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5) in a match that was carried over to Tuesday to complete the men’s quarterfinal lineup. The other matchups see defending champion Roger Federer against Kevin Anderson; Novak Djokovic takes on Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic meets John Isner in a matchup of big servers.

TOUR DE FRANCE

Two-man duel develops in early stages ASSOCIATED PRESS

SARZEAU, FRANCE • Fernando Gaviria and Peter Sagan have turned the first four days of the Tour de France into an enthralling duel of rising star versus world champion. And Tour newcomer Gaviria is winning so far. Gaviria edged Sagan at the finish line to claim Stage 4 on Tuesday and take his second stage win in his first participation at cycling’s greatest race. The 23-year-old Colombian had already bettered Sagan in a sprint to take the opening stage, amid rising expectations since his four stage victories at last year’s Giro d’Italia. Sagan hit back by winning Stage 2 in an uphill sprint after Gaviria had fallen in a group pileup on the final corner. Tuesday’s flat leg with its fourkilometer finish — the longest straightaway to conclude a leg on this Tour — was perfect terrain for the budding rivals to break the tie. After Quick-Step team members hunted down the breakaway to set up Gaviria, he powered ahead of the pack with handlebars swinging and crossed just inches ahead of Sagan and Andre Greipel in a close third. Sagan was closing fast and seemed to be on pace to overtake him just when Gaviria hit the line. “He is faster than me,” said Sagan, the three-time defending world champion who excels in finishes on slight ascents. “We will see. Maybe I will wait for some mistake (to beat him). And maybe we will see the next days on the climbs. Every stage is different, every sprint is different.” Gaviria finished the 121-mile

Colombia’s Fernando Gaviria has won two of four stages so far.

leg from La Baule to Sarzeau that started and finished on the Atlantic coast in 4 hours, 25 minutes, 1 second. “It was a very difficult sprint, but we knew how to pull it off,” Gaviria said. “We didn’t receive any help from the other teams to bring the breakaway back, but at the end my team deserves this victory and we can go to the hotel very happy with what we achieved.” Defending champion Chris Froome of Sky, who remained 55 seconds back due to his fall in Stage 1, finished safely in the pack with leader Greg Van Avermaet. Riders were enjoying a calm sunny afternoon until a pileup near the front of the peloton with just over 5K left that sent several riders to the tarmac. But there were no changes among the title hopefuls. Van Avermaet, the 2016 Olympic road race champion who is support rider for BMC leader

Richie Porte, took the yellow jersey when his team won Monday’s team time trial. Tom Dumoulin was seventh (11 seconds behind), last year’s runner-up Rigoberto Uran was 10th (:35) and Porte 14th (:51). Movistar teammates Alejandro Valverde and Mikel Landa were 15th and 16th (:53), narrowly ahead of Froome. The 2014 champion Vincenzo Nibali was 19th (1:06), Romain Bardet 20th (1:15) and Nairo Quintana was 48th (2:08). A four-man breakaway opened up a gap of more than seven minutes early on, but they were slowly reeled in by the Quick-Step-led pack with 2 kilometers to go. The Tour will spend three more days in northeastern Brittany, where fans waved black-andwhite-striped Breton flag on the roadside as the peloton rolled through the country villages. Next up is Stage 5, a hilly 204.5-kilometer leg from Lorient to Quimper. “Tomorrow is going to be a hard stage. It is a mini-classic in the Tour,” said Van Avermaet. The Tour works its way east before hitting the feared cobblestones of Stage 9 and then heading south and into the mountains. Froome, who was cleared of doping allegations last week by the International Cycling Union, has been jeered by some skeptical fans since arriving in France. During Tuesday’s stage, several syringes were seen alongside the course route in apparent protest by anti-Froome spectators. Froome is trying to join the select group of Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain as the only riders to win the Tour five times. The three-week Tour ends July 29 in Paris.

leg from La Baule to Sarzeau that started and finished on the Atlantic coast in 4 hours, 25 minutes, 1 second. “It was a very difficult sprint, but we knew how to pull it off,” Gaviria said. “We didn’t receive any help from the other teams to bring the breakaway back, but at the end my team deserves this victory and we can go to the hotel very happy with what we achieved.” Defending champion Chris Froome of Sky, who remained 55 seconds back due to his fall in Stage 1, finished safely in the pack with leader Greg Van Avermaet. Riders were enjoying a calm sunny afternoon until a pileup near the front of the peloton with just over 5K left that sent several riders to the tarmac. But there were no changes among the title hopefuls. Van Avermaet, the 2016 Olympic road race champion who is support rider for BMC leader

Richie Porte, took the yellow jersey when his team won Monday’s team time trial. Tom Dumoulin was seventh (11 seconds behind), last year’s runner-up Rigoberto Uran was 10th (:35) and Porte 14th (:51). Movistar teammates Alejandro Valverde and Mikel Landa were 15th and 16th (:53), narrowly ahead of Froome. The 2014 champion Vincenzo Nibali was 19th (1:06), Romain Bardet 20th (1:15) and Nairo Quintana was 48th (2:08). A four-man breakaway opened up a gap of more than seven minutes early on, but they were slowly reeled in by the Quick-Step-led pack with 2 kilometers to go. The Tour will spend three more days in northeastern Brittany, where fans waved black-andwhite-striped Breton flag on the roadside as the peloton rolled through the country villages. Next up is Stage 5, a hilly 204.5-kilometer leg from Lorient to Quimper. “Tomorrow is going to be a hard stage. It is a mini-classic in the Tour,” said Van Avermaet. The Tour works its way east before hitting the feared cobblestones of Stage 9 and then heading south and into the mountains. Froome, who was cleared of doping allegations last week by the International Cycling Union, has been jeered by some skeptical fans since arriving in France. During Tuesday’s stage, several syringes were seen alongside the course route in apparent protest by anti-Froome spectators. Froome is trying to join the select group of Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain as the only riders to win the Tour five times. The three-week Tour ends July 29 in Paris.

FRONTIER LEAGUE HOME RUN DERBY

Former Cards add to the fun

Edmonds emcees event while Grizzlies’ Santos takes the title

O’FALLON, MO. • Jim Edmonds patrolled

center field once again. The former Cardinals All-Star sat in the CarShield Field outfield Tuesday in the hours leading up to the Frontier League Home Run Derby. Instead of a glove, he clutched a pen and signed autographs for fans. The line spanned from Edmond’s perch in right-center field to the infield turf. Even though he did not participate in the derby, Edmonds managed to snag the spotlight. He was initially supposed to swing in a group of former Cardinals but had to scratch with a knee injury. During the autograph session, one boy asked Edmonds about his famous catch at Minute Maid Park. Another fan said she had been waiting 20 years to meet the eight-time Gold Glove winner. One joked he had bet on Edmonds to win the derby. “You would have lost,” Edmonds quipped. The Frontier League, a professional

independent league with teams in seven states, brought four former Cardinals to O’Fallon to participate in the Home Run Derby: Rick Ankiel, Ray Lankford, Mark Whiten and Kerry Robinson, Edmonds’ replacement. Trae Santos of the Gateway Grizzlies won the derby, beating Ankiel, who hit the most homers of the former big leaguers. The Frontier League event was not a place for distance trackers or exit velocity technology, but it featured an array of colorful uniforms, Little Leaguers shagging fly balls and even a bit of romance: During one of the ceremonial first pitches, a man proposed marriage on the mound. “The fans were great, the atmosphere was electric,” Santos said after his victory. “I was able to relax and have some fun.” Instead of hitting, Edmonds helped emcee the event at the River City Rascals’ stadium. The crowd gave him the loudest cheer of pre-derby introductions. He commented on players’ strategies throughout the evening, talking about the need to pace oneself in a derby. Each player had 90 seconds per round

to swing for the fences. Eight Frontier League players made up half of the bracket, including host-team River City’s Paul Kronenfeld. Lankford, a 1997 All-Star with the Cardinals, had never been to CarShield Field until Tuesday, and he said he enjoyed the environment. He said he swung a bat two months ago at a fantasy camp in Cooperstown, N.Y., but had not participated in a home run derby in multiple years. His plan heading into the event? Rely on muscle memory. “Just see if it’s like riding a bike,” said Lankford, a member of the Cardinals Hall of Fame. Unfortunately for the former All-Star, it proved a little more difficult. He struggled initially but managed to hit a home run on the final swing of his round. He raised his arms with excitement as he walked toward Edmonds and his former teammates. “I grew up watching those guys,” Santos said. “It was a real honor to participate in this event alongside them.” Kerry Robinson went from replacement to surprise of the night. The outfielder hit just three home runs in his MLB career, but he hit five dingers in the first round (including a 60-second tie-breaker round). Santos, whose Grizzlies play across the river from St. Louis in Sauget, captivated the crowd in the first round, crushing 11 home runs — six over the 36-foot tall “Big Dog Wall” in right field. He hit 11 more moonshots his next round. “Everybody give it up for him!” Edmonds shouted into his microphone following Santos’ second-round showing. During Ankiel’s final round, the lefty called for a 20-second timeout. The sun had faded, but the St. Louis humidity still hung in the air. Sweat sparkled on his face. “We need some water for him,” Edmonds chirped. The fatigue set in as the round went on, and Santos easily passed the former Cardinals standout when he stepped to the plate. When the Grizzlies’ slugger hit his winning home run, Ankiel was one of the first players to congratulate him. They posed for a picture, Santos clutching the firstplace prize bat. Ankiel’s sweet lefthanded swing was still intact, but a pair of younger legs had emerged victorious. Peter Baugh @Peter_Baugh on Twitter pbaugh@post-dispatch.com

MLB NOTEBOOK Bryant set to rejoin Cubs

Chicago third baseman Kris Bryant was headed to the Bay Area on Tuesday night hoping he will be ready to come off the disabled list and play in Wednesday afternoon’s series finale against the San Francisco Giants. Bryant, out since June 23 with inflammation in his left shoulder, played rehab games for Double-A Tennessee on Monday and Tuesday. He had hoped to rejoin the Cubs during their series at AT&T Park. In the two rehab games, Bryant went 2 for 6 with a two-run homer and three RBIs. Bryant is batting .280 with nine home runs and 36 RBIs in 66 games this season. Nats’ Doolittle on DL • The Washington Nationals placed All-Star closer Sean Doolittle on the 10-day disabled list with left toe inflammation, optioned righthanded pitcher Jefry Rodriguez to Triple-A Syracuse and recalled righthanded pitchers Wander Suero and Austin Voth from Syracuse on Tuesday. Doolittle, 31, hasn’t pitched since July 6. The following day, he tripped over a pitching mound and first experienced discomfort in his left toe. The lefthander has a 1.45 ERA and has converted 22 of 23 save opportunities this season. He will not pitch in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game, which is being held at Nationals Park on Tuesday. Kelvin Herrera will close games while Doolittle is out. He had 14 saves with the Kansas City Royals before he was traded to Washington on June 19. Phillies call up De Los Santos • The Philadelphia Phillies made a flurry of roster moves Tuesday, including promoting righthander Enyel De Los Santos from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 22-year-old Dominican Republic native started Tuesday’s game against the New York Mets, making his major league debut in a 7-3 win. De Los Santos was 9-3 with a 1.89 ERA in 16 starts for the Iron Pigs this season. To make room for De Los Santos on the 40-man roster, Philadelphia transferred Pedro Florimon to the 60-day disabled list. The versatile utility man has been idle since May 30 with a fractured right foot. The club also promoted infielder Trevor Plouffe and optioned outfielder Dylan Cozens to Lehigh Valley. Lefthander Hoby Milner was designated for assignment. Boston’s Hernandez, Vazquez have surgery • The Boston Red Sox said infielder Marco Hernandez and catcher Christian Vazquez have had surgery. Hernandez had surgery on his left shoulder and will miss the rest of the season. Vazquez had surgery on his right pinky finger and will miss six to eight weeks. Rays plan new stadium • The Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday unveiled an elaborate plan for a new domed stadium that would take them across Tampa Bay to the Ybor City section of Tampa at a cost of nearly $900 million. The 32,000-seat stadium would be the smallest in Major League Baseball and would be covered by a fully enclosed and translucent roof, not a retractable dome. The Rays have consistently ranked near the bottom in attendance at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, about 20 miles away from the proposed new site. The Ybor City site is bordered by Channelside Drive on the west, 15th Street on the east, 4th Avenue on the north and Adamo Drive on the south. No financing plans were revealed. Other news • Cleveland right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall will miss eight to 10 weeks with a strained left calf muscle. Cleveland also placed righthander Josh Tomlin — its longest-tenured player in his ninth season — on the DL with a strained right hamstring. ... The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Avisail Garcia on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain. Associated Press

This Date In Baseball Compiled by PAUL MONTELLA July 11 1914: Babe Ruth made his major league debut for the Boston Red Sox and received credit for a 4-3 victory over Cleveland. He was removed for a pinch hitter in the seventh, and Duffy Lewis’ single led to the winning run. 1944: Phil Cavaretta set an All-Star game record by reaching base safely five straight times: triple, single, three walks: to lead the NL to a 7-1 victory over the AL at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. 1950: The All-Star game returned to Comiskey Park, the site of the first game, and was won by the NL 4-3 on Red Schoendienst’s 14th-inning home run off Ted Gray. It was the first extra-inning All-Star game, the first time the NL won at an AL park and the first All-Star game shown on network television. 1961: Despite a record seven errors and pitcher Stu Miller getting blown off the Candlestick Park mound by a gale wind, the NL edged the AL 5-4 in the first of two All-Star games played that year. 1967: Tony Perez’s home run off Catfish Hunter in the 15th inning gave the NL a 2-1 win in the longest game in All-Star history. The game was played in California’s Anaheim Stadium. 1973: Jim Northrup of Detroit hit two grand slams, batting in the leadoff spot, to lead the Tigers to a 14-3 romp over the Texas Rangers. Northrup became the sixth major leaguer to hit two bases-loaded home runs in a game. 1978: Steve Garvey keyed the NL’s 7-3 All-Star victory at San Diego’s Jack Murphy Stadium with a gametying, two-run single and a triple that sparked a four-run eighth inning. 1985: Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros became the first pitcher in major league history to reach the 4,000-strikeout mark when he fanned New York’s Danny Heep leading off the sixth inning. The Astros beat the Mets 4-3 in 12 innings on Bill Doran’s fifth hit of the game. 1995: Jeff Conine’s solo shot in the eighth inning gave the NL a 3-2 victory in the All-Star game. Craig Biggio and Mike Piazza also homered for the NL. 2000: Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a run scored as the AL defeated the NL 6-3 in the All-Star game. Jeter became the first Yankee to win the All-Star game MVP. 2006: With the American League down to its final strike, Michael Young hit a two-run triple off Trevor Hoffman for a 3-2 victory that kept the Americans unbeaten in Major League Baseball’s All-Star game for the past decade. The NL took a 2-1 lead into the ninth behind David Wright’s homer and some daring, old-style baserunning. 2009: Nick Johnson, Josh Willingham and Dunn homered in consecutive at-bats and the Nationals set season highs for hits and runs in a 13-2 win at Houston. Today’s birthdays: Johnny Barbato 26; Blaine Boyer 37.

Mikolas will be All-Star observer Pitcher was named to team but unlikely to be available BY RICK HUMMEL st. Louis Post-dispatch

CHICAGO • While Cardinals catcher Yadier

Molina may have a good chance to play in next Tuesday’s All-Star Game upon his ninth selection to the National League team, pitcher Miles Mikolas probably won’t be pitching in his first one. Mikolas, who started Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox, also is likely to start Sunday’s series finale at home with the Cincinnati Reds, manager Mike Matheny suggested Tuesday. Sunday pitchers customarily have been ruled out of pitching in the All-Star Game two days later, so Mikolas, who probably would be replaced on the active All-Star club, would just enjoy the festivities in Washington. With another off day slated for Thursday, John Gant, who has been in the Cardinals’ rotation, will be in the bullpen for the next several days. Matheny said that Carlos Martinez, Jack Flaherty and Mikolas were in line to make the weekend starts. Molina said his sore right shoulder, which kept him out of Saturday’s and Sunday’s games, was fine Tuesday. But Tommy Pham, who has a left ankle contusion, was a very late scratch, replaced in center field by hothitting rookie Yairo Munoz, who was making his first big-league start there.

Molina was preparing to spend the Cardinals’ brief All-Star break in St. Louis and even planned to watch next Tuesday’s game on television. He will be a little closer to the scene, although he might be warming up some pitchers along the way. Molina got the call Monday night in Chicago, where he was spending the Cardinals’ off-day. San Francisco’s Buster Posey had asked out of his All-Star berth because of a balky hip. Molina was added to the National League catching corps, joining the Chicago Cubs’ Willson Contreras and Miami’s J.T. Realmuto, both first-time All-Stars. “I was surprised,” said Molina. “I wasn’t expecting anybody to get hurt. I hope that’s Buster’s OK. But it’s a great honor for me to be a part of this game. “This one I wasn’t expecting, but when they called, I said, ‘Wow, I feel good about it.’”

Molina said, “At this point of my career, I feel younger (he will be 36 on Friday) and I feel good. So, hopefully, I stay like that.” Molina, whose first All-Star selection was in 2009, is five for eight (.625) in All-Star Games with a homer that he hit last year. “It’s going to be a great time for me. It’s going to be a great time for my family and for my kids,” he said. “It’s an exciting moment.”

FOWLER: ‘I’M MOVING ON’

Dexter Fowler, hitting .167, made just his second start in two weeks, although he was gone for three days of that on paternity leave when his second daughter, Ivy, was born. With president of baseball operations John

Mozeliak’s recent comments on Fowler’s energy level still fairly fresh, Fowler, besieged on Tuesday by a couple of waves of reporters, mostly from Chicago, where he played with the World Series champion Cubs in 2016, said he had no issues. “I’m good,” he said. “I’m in positive spirits and that’s all that matters. I have a family to focus on. That kind of keeps me occupied right now. “At the end of the day, it’s over. And I’m moving on.” Fowler was among the Cardinals who came out for early hitting Tuesday after Monday’s off day. “He’s doing what he can to get it right,” said Matheny. “He just knows that he has to get into a good rhythm and it’s hard to get into good rhythm when you’re not out on the field on a consistent basis. “It’s a different space from where he’s been in the past, so it’s a great challenge but he has come out with a good attitude.”

GREGERSON BACK, NOT ACTIVE

Righthanded reliever Luke Gregerson, who has been on the 10-day disabled list for nearly two months because of a right shoulder impingement and also knee problems, rejoined the team from Class AA Springfield after pitching in back-to-back minor league games over the weekend. It isn’t likely that Gregerson would be activated before Friday, but he wanted to meet up with his team and see his family in suburban Chicago. “Physically, I feel pretty good,” he said. “I’ve been getting a lot of positive results on the mound. I’m pretty much where I need to be.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

Fowler hits a grand slam, Wong has four hits in a 14-2 victory CARDINALS • FROM B1

It might be viewed as a small step, but the Cardinals have ensured themselves of a winning trip that started with contenders Arizona and San Francisco. They are 5-3 with only Wednesday night’s series finale remaining with the White Sox. The Cardinals hadn’t had a winning trip covering more than one city since April when they went 5-1 at Cincinnati and Chicago. That was during the time the Cardinals were piling up much of their 9-1 edge against the Reds, and now they are 3-0 against the White Sox with one interleague tussle left. Mikolas (10-3) gave up just three hits over six innings, all the hits coming in succession in the third when the White Sox scored two runs. He allowed only one baserunner, on his lone walk, in his final four innings, and that pass was swallowed up in a double play. Fowler’s home run was his first since May 6 and first all season against a lefthanded pitcher, against whom the switch hitter

had been an atrocious .075 hitter this season on three hits in 40 atbats with just two runs batted in. Kolten Wong, one of Fowler’s partners in trying to rise above the .200 Mendoza Line, has left that mythical barrier well behind him. Wong had his fourth multihit game in his last four starts. This one was the best as he had a season-high four hits, including his seventh homer, as he boosted his average to a season-high .221. The Cardinals, leading just 4-2, almost had a horrible misfire in the sixth before the White Sox batterymen — and Fowler — came to the rescue. Yairo Munoz’s single to center over the head of starter Dylan Covey finished Covey in favor of lefthander Jace Fry. Lefthanded-hitting Wong beat out a bunt single and Matt Carpenter walked on a full-count pitch, bringing on righthander Bruce Rondon, who struck out Paul DeJong and got Jose Martinez on a fly out to right too shallow to score Munoz. With Marcell Ozuna at bat, catcher Omar Narvaez missed connections with a pitch and

Munoz scrambled home, soon to be followed by Wong, who came in on Rondon’s wild pitch. Rondon, after walking Ozuna, also passed Yadier Molina and Jedd Gyorko, forcing home still another run and forcing Rondon out of the game. And then Santiago’s sinker to Fowler didn’t sink until it cleared the left-center-field wall. Covey struck out four Cardinals hitters in the first two innings, issuing only a walk to Martinez with two out in the first. But Mikolas was better, striking out five of the first six men to face him. Covey blinked first. After retiring the first two Cardinals hitters in the third on groundouts, Covey surrendered consecutive singles by Carpenter, DeJong, Martinez and Ozuna, with the third and fourth of those hits driving in the game’s first two runs. Right fielder Leury Garcia ran down Molina’s fly ball to the warning track to end the rally. But the White Sox quickly rallied for two in their third, both driven in by former Cardinals farmhand Charlie Tilson, who

singled past diving first baseman Carpenter to score both Narvaez (single) and Tim Anderson (double). Mikolas stopped the bleeding by retiring the next three batters and the lead was restored to him in the fourth. Gyorko doubled to left and stopped at third as Fowler flared a single to left. Munoz beat out the relay on a potential double play ball to shortstop But he couldn’t beat shortstop Anderson’s onehop relay to the plate after Wong had doubled to right center. When third-base coach Jose Oquendo saw Garcia slip to the ground in trying to stop the ball he kept Munoz running. Munoz, who had fouled a ball off is left ankle during his at-bat, tried to slide home head-first but was tagged out by Narvaez. Martinez’s second of three hits set up another Cardinals run in the fifth. DeJong reached safely as Anderson booted his grounder. After he got to second on Martinez’s single, DeJong tagged up and advanced twice on fly balls to center by Ozuna and Molina as the Cardinals went up 4-2. Scoring 11 runs or more for

the third time in two weeks, the Cardinals reached the 90-game mark at 47-43, not really in contention but not really buried either. “We expect a lot of ourselves but we understand it’s a 162game season,” said manager Mike Matheny before the game. “You can use the word frustration but that’s not necessarily something that describes where we are. We’re still right in the middle of this thing. Just keep playing the game and don’t get too distracted by a lot of the noise. Noise is noise and they’re not impervious to it. Very few people are. “Part of what we do is try to create an atmosphere where we do eliminate some of the distractions. Not that we put our head in the sand but ... you’ve got almost half a season left. “How can you start drawing conclusions with half a season (72 games) left? It makes no mathematical sense to me.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

HOW THEY SCORED

Molina may have a good chance to play in next Tuesday’s All-Star Game upon his ninth selection to the National League team, pitcher Miles Mikolas probably won’t be pitching in his first one. Mikolas, who started Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox, also is likely to start Sunday’s series finale at home with the Cincinnati Reds, manager Mike Matheny suggested Tuesday. Sunday pitchers customarily have been ruled out of pitching in the All-Star Game two days later, so Mikolas, who probably would be replaced on the active All-Star club, would just enjoy the festivities in Washington. With another off day slated for Thursday, John Gant, who has been in the Cardinals’ rotation, will be in the bullpen for the next several days. Matheny said that Carlos Martinez, Jack Flaherty and Mikolas were in line to make the weekend starts. Discussing the possibility of his starting Sunday, Mikolas said, “We’ve talked about it. We’ll see how things shake out. “If I can squeeze in an extra start before the All-Star break, that would be great. The games for our team are more important than the All-Star Game. I’m happy to be there (on the All-Star team). I couldn’t be happier. But the games that matter are the games that I want to pitch in.” Molina said his sore right shoulder, which kept him out of Saturday’s and Sunday’s games, was fine Tuesday. But Tommy Pham, who has a left ankle contusion, was a very late scratch, replaced in center field by hothitting rookie Yairo Munoz, who was making his first big-league start there. Harrison Bader, another possibility, still was bothered by a hamstring injury when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday.

for Colorado. “Miles reminds me every day,” joked Fowler. It might be viewed as a small step, but the Cardinals have ensured themselves of a winning trip that started with contenders Arizona and San Francisco. They are 5-3 with only Wednesday night’s series finale remaining with the White Sox. The Cardinals hadn’t had a winning trip covering more than one city since April, when they went 5-1 at Cincinnati and Chicago. That was during the time the Cardinals were piling up much of their 9-1 edge against the Reds, and now they are 3-0 against the White Sox with one interleague tussle left.

He allowed only one baserunner, on his lone walk, in his final four innings, and that pass was swallowed up in a double play. Fowler’s home run was his first since May 6 and first all season against a lefthanded pitcher, against whom the switch hitter had been an atrocious .075 hitter this season on three hits in 40 atbats with just two runs batted in.

“That’s something to build on,” said manager Mike Matheny, who said he might start Fowler on Wednesday night against lefthander Carlos Rodon on the basis of what he saw Tuesday. Fowler still is hitting just .173 and Matheny said, “This is stuff where you just don’t go home and forget about (it). He’s dragging this with him all the time. Doing his part is all he’s trying to do right now and today he did it. I’m happy for him.” Fowler admitted the feeling he had after the game was “awesome, especially when you’ve been scuffling at the plate trying to get timing. You get a pitch and you barrel it up ... it feels good. My whole career, I’ve always hit lefthanders. The at-bats obviously have been few and far between this year.” Fowler, a natural righthanded batter, is a .290 career hitter against lefthanders and .252 against righthanders. The Cardinals’ bench erupted when Fowler homered, and the veteran said, “They’ve been behind me since day one, and hats off to them. You want to make them proud as much as anybody since they’ve been in your corner the whole time.” Uncomfortable in the eye of the storm recently, Fowler said, “You try to erase it and move

on. People keep bringing it up and that makes it worse, but I’ve moved on.” Kolten Wong, one of Fowler’s partners in trying to rise above the .200 Mendoza Line, has left that mythical barrier well behind him. Wong had his fourth multihit game in his last four starts. This one was the best as he tied a career high with four hits, including his seventh homer, boosting his average to a seasonhigh .221. Wong, who hadn’t had four hits in a game in nearly four years, also homered for the first time this year off a lefthander. “He’s just got confidence,” Matheny said. “That’s a great feeling to have,” said Wong, “knowing that everything is kind of where it needs to be.” The Cardinals, leading just 4-2, almost had a horrible misfire in the sixth before the White Sox batterymen — and Fowler — came to the rescue. Yairo Munoz’s single to center over the head of starter Dylan Covey finished Covey in favor of lefthander Jace Fry. Lefthanded-hitting Wong beat out a bunt single and Matt Carpenter walked, bringing on righthander Bruce Rondon, who struck out Paul DeJong and got Jose Martinez on a fly out to right too shallow to score Munoz.

Now it was two outs and still 4-2 and Matheny admitted he feared “missed opportunity. Fortunately, we took advantage of some free bases and just added on.” With Marcell Ozuna at bat, catcher Omar Narvaez missed connections with a pitch and Munoz scrambled home, soon to be followed by Wong, who came in on Rondon’s wild pitch. Rondon, after walking Ozuna, also passed Yadier Molina and Jedd Gyorko, forcing home still another run and forcing Rondon out of the game. And then Santiago’s sinker to Fowler didn’t sink until it cleared the wall in left-center. Covey surrendered consecutive singles by Carpenter, DeJong, Martinez and Ozuna, with the third and fourth of those hits driving in the game’s first two runs in the Cardinals’ third. But the White Sox quickly rallied for their two runs in their third, both driven in by former Cardinals farmhand Charlie Tilson, who singled past diving first baseman Carpenter to score Narvaez (single) and Tim Anderson (double). Mikolas stopped the bleeding by retiring the next three batters, and the lead was restored to him in the fourth. Gyorko doubled to left and stopped at third as Fowler flared

a single to left. Munoz beat out the relay on a potential double play ball to shortstop Anderson. Martinez’s second of three hits set up another Cardinals run in the fifth. DeJong reached safely as Anderson booted his grounder. After he got to second on Martinez’s single, DeJong tagged up and advanced twice on fly balls to center by Ozuna and Molina. Scoring 11 runs or more for the third time in two weeks, the Cardinals reached the 90-game mark at 47-43, not really in contention but not really buried, either. “We expect a lot of ourselves but we understand it’s a 162game season,” said Matheny before the game. “We’re still right in the middle of this thing. Just keep playing the game and don’t get too distracted by a lot of the noise. Noise is noise and they’re not impervious to it. Very few people are. “Part of what we do is try to create an atmosphere where we do eliminate some of the distractions. Not that we put our head in the sand but ... you’ve got almost half a season left. “How can you start drawing conclusions with half a season (72 games) left?” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

BLUES NOTEBOOK

Blues are still high on Kostin Prospect, now 19, is getting ready for his second year in AHL

Blues show they’re serious about scoring more goals GORDON • FROM B1

Blues prospect Klim Kostin celebrates a goal for Russia against Sweden during an IIHF world junior hockey game Dec. 31. BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Elite prospects Robert Thomas and Jordan Kyrou received lots of attention at the Blues’ prospects camp at the end of June, along with first-round draft pick Dominik Bokk. Then came a whirlwind of free agency and trades capped by Tuesday’s signing of St. Louisan Patrick Maroon. So it may seem as if Klim Kostin has gotten lost behind those headlines, but he is no afterthought as far as the Blues are concerned. “I thought he had a fantastic year last year as an 18-year-old (in San Antonio),” said Tim Taylor, the Blues’ director of player development. “He was one of our toughest competitors. For an 18-year-old, he never backed down from a single situation on the ice.” A first-round pick (No. 31 overall) in 2017, Kostin made the jump from hockey in Russia to San Antonio of the American Hockey League last season. By rule, European players are allowed to play in the AHL at a younger age than North American skaters, so there was Kostin — a long way from his hometown of Penza, Russia — in the AHL at age 18. (He has since turned 19, on May 5.) At first glance, his statistics were modest for the Rampage: six goals and 22 assists in 67 games. But keep in mind, San Antonio was an affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche last season. The Blues had an agreement to send several of their prospects there, but playing time wasn’t necessarily guaranteed. “I felt that (Kostin) probably could have got more ice time in power-play situations,” Taylor said. “Again, we didn’t run the team 100 percent so we really just went in and watched.” Additionally, Kostin spent the year

mainly on the second, third and even fourth lines. “This year now we have full control of the team so we can have our guys playing a lot more minutes, the guys that need to play, and in their rightful situations,” Taylor said. As a teenager in a strange land, Kostin had his father live with him in San Antonio to help in the transition. “The rest of the guys have their wives and family around, and he’s going to his dad,” Taylor said. “They’re pros and he didn’t understand what a pro is all about. His dad was taking care of him. “So we expect him this year now to kind of grow up a little bit and understand what the pros are all about and be on his own a little bit. He’s learned the language pretty good. “He fit in with the guys in the locker room last year. I know talking to the players throughout the year, they laughed and joked around, they thought a lot of him.” Normally players with a full year in the AHL don’t participate in the Blues’ prospects camp, but Taylor said Kostin was brought in because of his age and background, to mingle and work with his organizational teammates and get some face time with the coaches. Taylor said Kostin needs to rely more on puck movement and puck distribution and less on one-on-one play to become the NHL player they think he can be. He has a strong frame for his age and fits the power-forward mold. “To me, you can still see the skill,” coach Mike Yeo said at the end of prospects camp. “But it looked like he was pressing ... trying to do a little too much. It looked like every time he had the puck, he was trying to make a play that was gonna put him on our team. Which is totally understandable for a 19-year-old kid. “What I’m looking for, I’m looking to

see him come into camp (in September) and play a real solid team game and play a game that helps his teammates be effective and puts him in a position for his skill to come out. Because you can see the skill.”

NEXT UP, EDMUNDSON

With Maroon now a member of the Blues, the next item of business for general manager Doug Armstrong is getting defenseman Joel Edmundson under contract. Edmundson is a restricted free agent headed for salary arbitration July 25. “We haven’t really dug into it too much,” Armstrong said. “Newport Sports (which represents Edmundson) is one of the premier agencies in the NHL and so free agency’s a big time for them also. “But we’ve had initial conversations. They know our respect for Joel. And we know his desire to stay here, and we’re gonna get to task on that next week.”

SKATING COACH

There has been no official announcement by the team, but the Blues have hired a power skating coach, St. Louisan John Standbrook, to work primarily with the team’s younger skaters. Standbrook was on the ice working at the team’s prospects camp and will work with players again in August. “Certainly from an organization standpoint it’s huge,” Yeo said. “You’re not going to turn necessarily a skater who’s a below-average skater into Connor McDavid. “But if you can make everybody 5 percent better or whatever that percentage is, and get more out of them with that, then obviously it’s a real asset. And skating is such an important part of the game today, one that we certainly don’t want to overlook.” Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Blues add a big, physical presence in Maroon BLUES • FROM B1

decision by at least a few days. There were other teams in the mix, teams thought to be offering more money and a lengthier contract. “I know he talked to two other general managers, two other coaches,” Armstrong said Tuesday. “And it kept coming back to this was a really good fit for him on a one-year deal, to come into a team where he wants to prove himself and we want to prove ourselves.” The combination of persistence and patience paid off for the Blues, with Maroon being another big piece added to a dramatic offseason makeover. With emphasis on the “big.” At 6-3, 225, he has picked up the nickname “Big Rig” along the way in a sevenyear NHL career that has included stops in Anaheim, Edmonton, New Jersey and now St. Louis. Armstrong also sees versatility in Maroon, who can play both left and right wing and slide into any of the top three lines. “A big body that can help us on the power play in front of the net,” Armstrong said. “A big body with soft hands.” In no particular order, the Blues’ top nine up front now consists of Bozak, Maroon, O’Reilly, Perron, Robby Fabbri, Brayden Schenn, Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko. On opening day last season, the Blues’ top nine consisted of these lines: • Tarasenko-Paul Stastny-Vladimir Sobotka. • Schwartz-Schenn-Dmitrij Jaskin. • Magnus Paajarvi-Oskar Sundqvist-Tage Thompson. Four of those nine are no longer with the

club. “I was excited about last year’s training camp, and then we got in there and a week in we had lost Zach Sanford who we had high hopes for, we had lost Fabbri, we had lost Steen,” Armstrong said. Patrik Berglund, also no longer with the club, was sidelined because of an offseason training injury that resulted in shoulder surgery. Injuries aside, here’s another way to look at it: Jaskin, Paajarvi, Sobotka, Sundqvist and Thompson — all members of that opening-night top 9 on Oct. 4 in Pittsburgh — combined for 29 goals, 45 assists and 74 points last season. Newcomers Bozak, Maroon, O’Reilly and Perron had a combined 68 goals, 145 assists and 213 points for their respective teams last season. But as deep as the Blues now look, the Maroon addition does bring a couple of questions to the forefront. No. 1, where does this leave all the shiny, young prospects in the organization, particularly center Robert Thomas? “I think it’s always easier to play and break in on a highly competitive team,” Armstrong said. “You’re able to — I don’t want to say be sheltered — but be used in an area where you can have success and not fail. “You can put a lot of young guys on the team at once if you’re willing to sort of live through those growing pains. Those growing pains are 60-point seasons. That’s not our desire, to have a 60-point season and have six or seven guys learn on the job. “So I think we’re gonna be able to implement young players like we did (Vince) Dunn last year. Hopefully, (Jake) Walman has a good summer and can push. You’ve

got (Sammy) Blais that has more experience now, along with Thomas, along with (Klim) Kostin, along with (Jordan) Kyrou.” Because Thomas just turned 19, he’s too young to play for San Antonio in the American Hockey League next season. It’s either make the varsity or go back to juniors. “He has no escape route except back to junior hockey,” Armstrong said. “So we’re hoping he comes in and has a great September to ‘buy’ himself the opening night roster and then push forward from there.” Question No. 2 is how do the Blues pay for all this while remaining cap compliant? According to CapFriendly.com, the Maroon signing leaves the Blues with just under $3.3 million of remaining cap space. And that’s not counting defenseman Joel Edmundson, who’s headed to salary arbitration July 25 as a restricted free agent. The Blues don’t have to be under the cap until the regular season, but it sure looks like they must eventually move some salary off the roster to get there. “We’d like to get Joel signed and we will get Joel signed,” Armstrong said. “But I don’t think there’s gonna be any moves that need to be made. “Ultimately, your moves are made because you’ll have a 23-man roster. So someone has to go, not because of the cap but because of a 23-man roster when we get to that point. But we’re a long way from there and our focus now is to get Joel signed and then move forward.” And in what now rates as the understatement of the offseason, Armstrong added: “It should be a really competitive camp.” Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

squeezed rugged winger Patrick Maroon under the team’s salary cap, too. Robby Fabbri will attempt another comeback from another knee operation. Elite prospects Robert Thomas and Jordan Kyrou will bid for jobs, along with young forwards Sammy Blais and Zach Sanford. O’Reilly (61 points last season), Perron (66 points), Bozak (43 points) and Maroon (43 points) add significant firepower. Fabbri scored 18 goals as a rookie and Thomas, Kyrou and Blais possess similar offensive potential. However coach Mike Yeo mixes his lines this season — and his Mixmaster is always on, always churning — the Blues will be far more capable of sustaining pressure and actually scoring goals. The Vegas Golden Knights spread speed and skill over all four lines and wore down opponents. Thanks to Armstrong’s busy summer and the team’s impressive player development, the Blues will be equipped to do the same. Last season was a much different story. Jaden Schwartz, Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko showed potential as a true No. 1 line, but Schwartz missed 20 games to injury and Yeo often separated Schenn and Tarasenko to balance his top two lines. By default, fourth-liners Scottie Upshall and Kyle Brodziak moved up in the lineup at times during the 2017-18 campaign. Once Paul Stastny departed for Winnipeg in the bailout trade, Brodziak evolved into the team’s second-best center. No offense to the ever-diligent Brodziak, but that’s not a good sign for franchise looking to end its five-decade Stanley Cup drought. Brodziak scored 10 goals in 81 games. Vladimir Sobotka, who also saw some second-line duty, scored 11 times in 81 games. Ivan Barbashev (seven goals in 53 games), Dmitrij Jaskin (six in 76) and rookie Tage Thompson (three in 41) also played up in the lineup at times by default. Oft-maligned Patrik Berglund scored 17 times in 57 games, which, relatively speaking, made him a sniper on that team. Again, that’s not a good sign. Tarasenko became visibly frustrated last season. While he must mature as a leader and learn to manage his frustrations, he also needs the team to provide him with more talented linemates at even strength. That problem appears solved. No. 91 will have ample support this season, regardless of what combinations Yeo deploys. Brodziak, Upshall, Berglund, Sobotka and Thompson are gone and Barbashev and Jaskin will have to battle just to make the roster, assuming they make it to camp. The possibilities are endless for the four lines at even strength and the two power-play units. Presumably Yeo will want to keep Schwartz and Schenn together, given the excellent chemistry the developed last season. Then again, Schwartz is an excellent defensive forward, as is O’Reilly. Schwartz and Schenn got the vast majority of their zone starts in the offensive zone last season. Meanwhile O’Reilly, perhaps the NHL’s top faceoff man, got the vast majority of his starts in the defensive zone in Buffalo. Is he better suited to match up against opposing top lines? While Yeo will certainly want to look at the Tarasenko-O’Reilly combination, he and his coaching staff will have lots to ponder. Bozak was the No. 3 center in Toronto but played extensively with shooter James van Riemsdyk and playmaker Mitch Marner at even strength. He fits nicely with skilled linemates. Then there is Thomas, a wellrounded prospect destined to become a No. 2 center. Once he develops, he could bump one of the top three centers to the wing. Armstrong has wondered if an O’Reilly-ThomasTarasenko line could take form down the road. In the meantime, Thomas could open as the fourth-line center and see special teams duty. Remember, the Golden Knights’ success persuaded many NHL coaches to quit constructing fourth lines with penalty killers and hit men. As Vegas proved, a fourth line that scores takes a load off the top three lines and helps a team maintain a brisk shift-to-shift pace. On the wing, Perron has the skills to fit in anywhere. Maroon adds physical play and finishing ability to any line he joins. Fabbri brings skill and tenacity, if healthy, and Alexander Steen provides heady two-way play and the willingness to muck it up. There is much flexibility within all of this skill and depth. While Yeo may struggle to find enough minutes for all of his scorers, that beats struggling to find scoring from those playing undeserved minutes.

Southgate, England get a shot

Ronaldo will join Juventus

Win over Croatia in semifinals would be among top soccer feats ASSOCIATED PRESS

Manager Gareth Southgate and England are ready to face the music. No other soccer nation dwells on decades of failure quite like the English. Southgate was so demoralized by his penalty kick failure against Germany in the 1996 European Championship semifinals, he avoided The Lightning Seeds’ “Three Lions,” the team’s official song when it hosted the tournament. Now the song, with its repeated chorus of “football’s coming home,” is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UK’s top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of England’s last match. “’Football’s coming home’ is a song I couldn’t even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel,” Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England’s World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. “But it’s nice to hear people enjoying it again.” When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed “Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming.” A 1998 update changed the third verse to “no more years of hurt.” England hasn’t played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgate’s penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar. The mostcherished national team memory remains the 1966 World Cup final victory at Wembley over West Germany, a demarcation point in the island’s history as much as 1066 (the Norman invasion) and 1707 (union with Scotland). “It was a long time ago, so not

too many of us can remember that far back,” said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990. The winner Wednesday in Moscow advances to Sunday’s final against France. Southgate wants to break stereotypes, and not just on the field. “I’m rare breed. I’m an Englishman that doesn’t drink tea,” he said. England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. In the other four games,

Croatia’s only variable to its 4-2-3-1 formation was whether to start captain Luka Modric in a deep midfield role and Andrej Kramaric more advanced, or to move up Modric and start Marcelo Brozovic. Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russia and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. When asked about injuries, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic responded through a translator with inconclusive palaver about Vrsaljko having “this niggle.” England has gone with a 3-5-

2, and the only change was to start Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield after Dele Alli injured a thigh. “The biggest thing that (Southgate) brought since he’s come in, which he’s brought right from day one, was identity, and about the way that we wanted to create a team,” Henderson said. “You can see that togetherness on the pitch now, and I think that’s valuable in crucial moments in big games, and yeah, I can definitely say this is most together England team that I’ve been involved in, and so I think that makes a massive difference and you get your rewards for that.” With an average age of 26, England is one of the youngest teams at the World Cup. “We were never quite sure how far this team could go,” Southgate said. “The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see. We’re really proud in the style that we’ve played, with the intelligence that we’ve played, and that we’ve performed under pressure and dealt with difficult situations in games where we’ve had to wait until the last minute to score, we’ve had to recover from conceding in last minute, we’ve been through extra time, penalties.” Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France. Defender Dejan Lovren is a teammate of Henderson’s on Champions League finalist Liverpool, and Lovren bristled when asked about a 4-1 loss at Tottenham last October when England striker Harry Kane scored twice. “It’s completely irrelevant,” he said through a translator. “Why didn’t you ask me how I played well against him? You are just nitpicking my poor performances.”

After 9 years, forward leaves Real Madrid ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus in a move expected to benefit the Portugal forward’s tax return. Juventus said Tuesday it paid 112 million euros ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a fouryear deal with the Serie A champions. The move brings an end to a hugely successful nine-year spell in Spain, and takes him further away from a tax fraud case that may end up costing the Portugal forward more than $20 million in fines. “These years with Real Madrid and in this city of Madrid have been possibly the happiest of my life,” Ronaldo wrote in an open letter. “My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city. I can only thank them all for the love and affection I have received. “But I think the time has come to start a new phase in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept my transfer. I feel that it is time, and I ask everyone, especially our fans, to please understand me.” Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United and was the Spanish club’s alltime leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches. He helped the club win four Champions League titles — beating Juventus in the final in 2017 — and also won the league and cup twice each. He has scored a record 120 Champions League goals, 105 of them since moving to Madrid — 12 more than Juventus managed in that same period. But he was unhappy with the way the tax authorities treated him in Spain. Ronaldo, along with several other top players in the country, has been accused of tax fraud, with authorities saying the government was defrauded of 14.7 million euros ($17 million) from 2011-14. Unconfirmed media reports last month said Ronaldo had agreed to pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($22 million). In Italy, a new law caps tax on income generated from abroad at 100,000 euros ($117,000) per year for residents who have paid their taxes in other countries for at least nine of the last 10 years. Other players targeted by Spanish tax authorities in recent years include Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luka Modric. Former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, now at Manchester United, was also investigated. Ronaldo is on vacation in Greece following Portugal’s elimination from the World Cup. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew out Tuesday to meet the 33-year-old forward. Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club. But he has also publicly expressed his discontentment about being jeered at times by some Madrid fans. Ronaldo was also moved by the Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation after he scored a spectacular goal against the Italian club last season.

France’s Samuel Umtiti (second from right) looks back as his header gets past Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the 51st minute.

France makes World Cup final with fourth shutout in Russia CUP • FROM B1

France coach Didier Deschamps fell into Umtiti’s arms after the final whistle. His superbly drilled defense, led by Raphael Varane, neutralized Belgium’s much-hyped attack to record a fourth shutout in six games so far. “They have so many athletic players, to have resisted in defense is very good. We had to defend very deep sometimes,” Deschamps said. “We came up against a very good Belgium side which controlled the game more than us. But we also hurt them.” Umtiti danced in front of the France fans, while center back partner Varane walked over to them and pumped his clenched fist. Varane was injured when France lost the European Championship final two years ago, and he looks determined to make up for it. The spotlight in Russia has been on 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe for France, whose electric pace and skill lit up the tournament. But for the second consecutive knockout game, a

defender managed to score when Mbappe couldn’t. Against Uruguay last Friday, it was Varane’s header that gave France the lead in a 2-0 win. On Tuesday, it was Umtiti rising to head home a corner from the right in the 51st minute. “Enormously proud,” Umtiti said. “We worked really hard together, and it’s me that scored, but we all delivered a big game.” Umtiti showed superb timing to leap above Belgium midfielder Maroune Fellaini — the tallest

like Mbappe, he took a back seat against the Belgians as Lloris and his defense starred at St. Petersburg Stadium. Varane made decisive headers to cut out dangerous crosses and corners, and read to perfection almost every run from Romelu Lukaku and the fleetfooted Eden Hazard. He also compensated for the times when right back Benjamin Pavard was caught out of position, particularly by Hazard, when Belgium dominated the opening 20 min-

utes. When France’s defense was breached, the agile Lloris was on hand to make decisive saves — just like against Uruguay. He made a superb, leaping stop to his right to palm away a sudden strike from Toby Alderweireld in the 22nd minute that would have gone inside the left post. Midway through the second half, Lloris was there again, springing off his line to punch away a dangerous right-wing cross from Belgium substitute Dries Mertens. With 10 minutes left and Belgium pressing, Lloris flew off his line to his left to push away a powerful shot from midfielder Axel Witsel. France won its only World Cup 20 years ago, thanks to a commanding goalkeeper — Fabien Barthez — protected by a rocksolid defense that also chipped in with goals. France had five shutouts in seven games back then. With Croatia or England awaiting in Sunday’s final, the formula is one game away from working again.

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

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

with this compact coupe a joy. That manual is effortless to operate and a blast to put through its paces, helping, as it does, launch this guy from 0-to-60 in 5.5 seconds. Adding to the fun are chassis modes of Comfort, Sport and Sport +, which tailor steering heft, throttle- response and suspension settings. But, regardless, 2 is never sloppy. We thought of its suspension settings as Firm, Firmer and Ouch. continued inside

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

How Acoustic Wave Therapy Works:

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

GREEK OUT! Food for immortals perfected over thousands of years BY DANIEL NEMAN | ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

Yes, the recipe for moussaka has 25 ingredients. No, I never run recipes that long, because who has the time? • To be honest, when I decided to write about the food of Greece I wasn’t even thinking of including a recipe for moussaka, because it is too obvious a choice. Most everyone who wants to make moussaka already has a recipe for it. • But then I saw that the recipe came from Molyvos, a restaurant in New York City. And suddenly I could not wait to try it.

Revealed: The secret to all cooking

CRISP, LIVELY WHITES MADE WITH ALBARIÑO GRAPES PAIR WELL WITH FISH. PAGE L2

DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The single most important secret in all of cooking is just three words: mise en place. It is apparently one of the first things you are taught in culinary school, and the structure on which all other cooking stands. Mise en place is French for “put in place,” and on a very basic level it means to have all of your ingredients ready and measured out before you begin cooking. See NEMAN • Page L5

WINE FINDS

Albariño from Spain, Portugal BY GAIL APPLESON • Special to the Post-Dispatch

Albariño is the signature grape and wine of Rías Baixas, a Denominación de Origen in the northwestern part of Spain on the Atlantic coast of Galicia. These grapes are used to make crisp, lively whites that are appropriately nicknamed Wine of the Sea because they go so very well with fish and shellfish. Although Rías Baixas is famous for these wines, albariño can also be found in other wine regions including neighboring Portugal, where it is called alvarinho. Wines made from this grape should be enjoyed young, so look for the most recent vintage.

GRAND’ ARTE 2016 ALVARINHO, LISBOA, PORTUGAL

RAMÓN BILBAO 2016 ALBARIÑO, RÍAS BAIXAS, SPAIN

Bought • Friar Tuck, 9053 Watson Road, in June for $12.99 Description • Wine Enthusiast gave this wine 90 points and listed it among the top 100 Best Buys in 2017. The Grand’ Arte probably tasted fresher last year, but it is still a good wine. The grapes were grown on the western coast of central Portugal, farther south than where much of Portugal’s alvarinho is grown. The result is a soft and easy-todrink white that tastes of apricots and ends with a tart citrus finish.

Bought • Total Wine, 90 Promenade Court, in June for $12.99 Description • This delicious albariño, which also received a high score from Wine Enthusiast, is made and bottled for Rioja-based Ramón Bilbao by the well-regarded Mar de Frades winery in Rías Baixas. Although it’s also a 2016, it tastes fresher than the Grand’ Arte. It’s fruitier and livelier with zesty acidity. Crisp and well-balanced, this is also an easy-to-drink white that tastes of stone fruits and refreshing citrus.

BEST BITES: TRADER JOE’S BITE SIZE CRISPY COOKIES FILLED WITH BELGIAN CHOCOLATE A dollop of rich Belgian chocolate binds two classic dessert biscuits to make these simple, yet tasty, bite-sized cookies.

Mexican pulled pork without the hassle MEXICAN PULLED PORK Yield: 6 servings For the pork 1 (3 ½- to 4-pound) boneless pork butt, fat cap trimmed to 4/5 inch thick, cut into 2-inch chunks 1 small onion, peeled and halved 2 bay leaves 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon ground cumin Table salt and ground black pepper

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN

Traditional carnitas, Mexico’s version of pulled pork, is fried in gallons of lard or oil. The results are tasty, but who wants to deal with all that hot fat? We wanted restaurant-style carnitas—tender chunks of lightly crisped, caramelized pork, subtly accented with oregano and citrus—without the hassle of frying. Our initial recipe for carnitas started by simmering the meat (taste tests proved boneless pork butt had the best flavor) in a seasoned broth in the oven and then sauteing it in some of the rendered fat. The flavor was OK, but too

much of the pork flavor was lost when we discarded the cooking liquid. So we reduced the liquid on the stovetop (after the meat had been removed) to the consistency of a thick, syrupy glaze that was perfect for coating the meat. Broiled on a rack set over a baking sheet, the glazed meat developed a wonderfully rich flavor, and the rack allowed the excess fat to drip off. We emulated the flavor of the Mexican sour oranges used in authentic carnitas with a mixture of fresh lime and orange juices. Bay leaves and oregano provided aromatic notes, and cumin brought an earthiness that complemented the other flavors.

2 cups water 2 tablespoons juice from 1 lime 1 medium orange, halved For the tortillas and garnishes 18 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed Lime wedges Minced white or red onion Fresh cilantro leaves Thinly sliced radishes Sour cream

Note: To warm tortillas, place them on a plate, cover with a damp dish towel and microwave for 60 to 90 seconds. Keep tortillas covered and serve immediately. 1. Adjust an oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat the oven to 300 degrees. Combine the pork, onion, bay leaves, oregano, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, water and lime juice in a large Dutch oven (the liquid should just barely cover the meat). Juice the orange into a medium bowl and remove any seeds (you should have about 1/3 cup juice). Add the juice and spent orange halves to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Cover the pot and transfer it to the oven; cook until the meat is soft and falls apart when prodded with a fork, about 2 hours, flipping the pieces of meat once during cooking. 2. Remove the pot from the oven and turn the oven to broil. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pork to a bowl; remove the orange halves, onion and bay leaves from the cooking liquid and discard (do not skim the fat from the liquid). Place the pot over high heat (use caution, as the handles will be very hot) and simmer the liquid, stirring frequently, until thick and syrupy (a heatproof spatula should leave a wide trail when dragged through the glaze), 8 to 12 minutes. You should have about 1 cup reduced liquid. 3. Using two forks, pull each piece of pork in half. Fold in the reduced liquid; season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread the pork in an even layer on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet or on a broiler pan (the meat should cover almost the entire surface of the rack or broiler pan). Place the baking sheet on the lower-middle oven rack and broil until the top of the meat is well browned (but not charred) and the edges are slightly crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Using a wide metal spatula, flip the pieces of meat and continue to broil until the top is well-browned and the edges are slightly crisp, 5 to 8 minutes longer. Serve immediately with the warm tortillas and garnishes. Per serving: 339 calories; 14g fat; 147mg cholesterol; 549mg sodium; 3g carbohydrate; no fiber; 2g sugar; 46g protein.

Make delicious deviled eggs without strain or torment CLASSIC DEVILED EGGS Yield: 12 egg halves 6 large eggs 3 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, plus 12 small whole parsley leaves for garnishing 1 teaspoon cider vinegar 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce Pinch cayenne pepper

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN

The best deviled eggs start with the best hard-cooked eggs. Conventional wisdom insists that older eggs peel more easily than fresh eggs, but we wanted to be able to start with eggs of any age and still end up with flawlessly smooth peeled results. Instead of a cold-water start, we used our recipe for Easy-Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs, which calls for placing cold eggs directly into hot steam. This denatures the

outermost egg white proteins, causing them to shrink away from the shell membrane and making it easy to slip off the eggshells after cooking. Fresh herbs, cider vinegar, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne elevated the flavor of the filling, and we also created two variations: one with aromatic curry powder and another with crisp bacon and fresh chives. This recipe can be doubled. If you prefer, use a pastry bag fitted with a large plain or star tip to fill the egg halves.

1. Bring 1 inch water to rolling boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Place eggs in steamer basket. Transfer basket to saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook eggs for 13 minutes. 2. When eggs are almost finished cooking, combine 2 cups ice cubes and 2 cups cold water in medium bowl. Using tongs or spoon, transfer eggs to ice bath; let sit for 15 minutes. Peel before using. 3. Halve eggs lengthwise with paring knife. Transfer yolks to bowl; arrange whites on serving platter. Mash yolks with fork until no large lumps remain. Add mayonnaise and use rubber spatula to smear mixture against side of bowl until thick, smooth paste forms, 1 to 2 minutes. Add minced parsley, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire and cayenne and mix until fully incorporated. 4. Transfer yolk mixture to small heavy-duty plastic bag. Press mixture into 1 corner and twist top of bag. Using scissors, snip ½ inch off filled corner. Squeezing bag, pipe yolk mixture into egg white halves. Garnish with parsley leaves before serving.

SOUTHERN GREENS & PORK

SPECIAL REQUEST

Southern takes time to build layers of flavor in collard greens

Yield: 8 servings 1 ½ pounds collard greens cup chopped bacon 1 cup ¼-inch cubes pork butt 2 teaspoons black pepper or to taste ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper or to taste Scant ½ cup diced yellow onion 4 teaspoons minced garlic 7 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt (see note) 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup smoked chicken drippings (see note) 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar 5 cups water 1/3

Notes: Southern calls its chicken drippings “chicken love.” They come from Pappy’s Smokehouse. It’s the drippings left from smoking chickens, part gelatinous meat juice, part smoked chicken fat; sorry, there’s no real substitute. That said, my family loved the greens cooked in a rich homemade chicken stock made from the carcass of a smoked chicken, I also added a little schmaltz (rendered chicken fat). • More than two tablespoons salt may sound like a lot. But Diamond Crystal’s salt-crystal structure packs more loosely so that by volume, it’s less salty than other salts. To use the more common Morton Kosher Salt, use half the stated amount, then taste the cooking liquid before adding the greens and adjust to taste. 1. Clean the collard greens well; soak the greens in cool water for 30 minutes, then swish, then rinse; repeat the process until the cleaning water runs clear. With a socket wrench, strip the leaves off the heavy stems and discard the stems. (Alternatively, use a knife or your hands to remove the stems.) Roughly chop the leaves; it helps to stack several leaves, roll them tightly into a cigar shape, then cut crosswise, then chop. You should have about 1 pound of chopped collards. 2. In a large, heavy Dutch oven or a large, wide and deep skillet (sorry, no nonstick), brown the bacon and pork; avoid stirring so as not to disturb the browning; once the meat begins to turn color, sprinkle the top of the cooking meat with both black and red peppers. 3. Put the onions on top of the meat. As the meat gets hot, stir in the onions, garlic and salt; cook until the onions begin to soften and sweat. 4. Stir in the brown sugar and chicken drippings until both dissolve into a syrupy sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer. Stir in the vinegar and bring back to a simmer. Add the water and bring back to a simmer. 5. Stir in the greens, carefully pressing them into the hot liquid; for consistency in flavor and texture, add the greens all at once, not in batches. Cook the greens uncovered on medium heat until the leaves begin to soften; timing will depend on the age and tenderness of the greens but 30 to 60 minutes should do it; look for color that remains dark green but taste without bitterness; the leaves should still have some crunch but also have lost some firmness. 6. To serve Southern-style, serve the greens hot with Nashville hot chicken or buttermilk biscuits. Per serving: 164 calories; 11g fat; 3g saturated fat; 18mg cholesterol; 6g protein; 12g carbohydrate; 7g sugar; 4g fiber; 1,039mg sodium; 218mg calcium Recipe adapted for home kitchens by the Post-Dispatch.

DAVID CARSON • dcarson@post-dispatch.com

A • At Southern — that’s Pappy’s Smokehouse’s hot-chicken next-door neighbor in Midtown near St. Louis University — it takes 24 hours and five separate steps for the Nashville-style chicken to reach your table. All those steps may not be “small s” southern, but it’s definitely the culinary bedrock at Southern. “It’s how we cook, here,” says chef Cole Crist. He calls it “elevated food” served in a fastcasual setting. “We don’t cut corners.

It takes an hour alone just to strip the greens from the tough stalks, even with an ingenious tool you might even have in the garage — a socket wrench. The cooking itself is also laborintensive, says Crist, it’s how Southern builds layers of flavor into the traditional southern-style greens. “In every bite, we want you to taste sweet, heat, smoke and vinegar. It takes technique. It takes time.” Are Southern’s greens spicy? It’s a fair question since Southern’s fried

chicken ranges in heat from the oneflame “original” with a hint of spice to the five-flame “cluckin’ hot.” Crist answers, “Yes, ma’am. The greens do have some heat.” For a fire extinguisher, pair them with Southern’s top-selling mac ‘n’ cheese or the summery cucumber salad that Crist says the restaurant can’t make enough of. Or better yet? Follow the lead of other customers who pair the meaty greens with house-made buttermilk biscuits, a true “small s” southern and now “big S” Southern tradition. Southern is closed Mondays and Tuesdays. The rest of the week, it’s open for lunch and (early) dinner.

When it comes to grilled kebabs, vegetables are often an afterthought, typically used as a filler on meat-heavy skewers. But this treatment often leads to mushy, burnt vegetables with no flavor of their own. We wanted to create a recipe that would put the vegetables front and center. We started by choosing the right vegetables. We wanted a good mix of flavors and textures, but we knew that not all veggies would hold up to the high heat of the grill. We started with bell peppers, which sweetened beautifully over the flames,

and zucchini, which held its shape nicely and had a satisfying texture. Portobello mushroom caps were the perfect addition to the kebabs; as they released their moisture over the flame, they picked up great char and developed a deep, meaty taste. Tossing grilled vegetables with a bold dressing can amp up their flavor considerably, but for our

vegetable kebabs, we took the idea one step further. We tossed the vegetables with half of the dressing before skewering and grilling them, giving them great flavor from the start. We pumped up the complexity and nuance of the remaining dressing with juice from grilled lemons, and tossed it with the cooked vegetables for a punchy, bright finish.

GRILLED VEGETABLE KEBABS

Yield: 4 servings

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary 1 garlic clove, minced Salt and pepper 6 portobello mushroom caps (4 to 5 inches in

diameter), quartered 2 zucchinis, halved lengthwise and sliced ¾ inch thick 2 red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1 ½-inch pieces 2 lemons, quartered

1. Whisk oil, mustard, rosemary, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper together in large bowl. Transfer half of dressing to separate bowl and set aside for serving. Toss mushrooms, zucchini and bell peppers with remaining dressing, then thread in alternating order onto 8 (12-inch) metal skewers. For a charcoal grill: Open bottom vent completely. Light a large chimney starter half filled with charcoal briquettes (3 quarts). When top coals are partially covered with ash, pour evenly over grill. Set cooking grate in place, cover and open lid vent completely. Heat grill until hot, about 5 minutes. For a gas grill: Turn all burners to high, cover and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes. Turn all burners to medium. 2. Clean and oil cooking grate. Place kebabs and lemons on grill. Cook (covered if using gas), turning as needed, until vegetables are tender and well browned, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer kebabs and lemons to serving platter. Juice 2 lemon quarters into reserved dressing and whisk to combine. Pour dressing over kebabs and serve with remaining lemons.

Moussaka recipe is well worth the effort and Tomato, or garides saganaki. At first, this seems like a typical dish of shrimp in a tomato sauce — and you can never go wrong with shrimp in a tomato sauce — but it has two distinctions that make it better than the others. The first distinction is the onions. Rather than using yellow or white onions to deepen the taste of the tomato sauce, this recipe uses green onions. Their taste is sharper but also milder, which gives the sauce a bright flavor without dominating it. The second distinction is the feta cheese, which lends a nice briny counterpoint to the earthier tomato sauce. Softened slightly, the cheese also studs the sauce with occasional bits of chewy texture. I also made a true Greek salad, which is to say the way they make it in Greece, not America. In Greece, the traditional salad called horiatiki does not have lettuce. At all. It’s practically the law: In Greece, what we think of as a Greek salad consists only of tomatoes, onions, cucumber, parsley, olives and feta cheese, topped with oil, red wine vinegar and dried oregano, plus salt and pepper. Sliced green pepper is optional. Put it all together — at the last minute, please — and it is an incredibly fresh dish, bursting with well-balanced flavors and wholly satisfying. For dessert, I thought that because I had already made moussaka, I may as well make baklava. In for a drachma, in for a euro, as they say. Like moussaka, baklava takes some time to make (though not as much). Like moussaka, the result is worth it. Baklava, of course, is the irresistible dessert made of layers upon layers of thin and crispy phyllo dough, stuffed with lightly sweetened (and cinnamoned) chopped nuts and doused in a sweet syrup. In Greece, the syrup uses honey; other Mediterranean countries with their own versions use just sugar or sugar flavored with rose water. But the key ingredient of baklava is butter. Each fragile, individual sheet of phyllo must be brushed with melted butter, which is why it takes a while to make. If you have never worked with phyllo before, it can be a little tricky, because the thin dough tends to tear. But there is one simple trick to solve that problem: Use a pastry brush with soft bristles. A silicone brush will just leave you with an ugly, tangled mess. Baklava is a perfect dessert to share with others, but don’t forget to save a few pieces for yourself. Some things are just worth it.

GREECE • FROM L1

Greek food is one of the world’s great cuisines, and no wonder. The civilization has been around for thousands of years, and for all of that time they have been perfecting ways to cook with the wonderful, fresh ingredients they have on hand: fish, lamb, olives, lemons, cinnamon, garlic, honey, goat cheese, yogurt and oregano. And wine, too. Don’t forget, the ancient Greeks had a god of wine, Dionysus.

Shrimp With Feta and Tomato

Of all the great and memorable Greek meals I have had in my life, the best and most memorable was at Molyvos. The restaurant is smackdab in the middle of midtown Manhattan, and we found it the last time we were in the city. We had a plane to catch, so we had an early dinner that was more of a very late lunch. I ordered the grilled octopus. It was tender, surprisingly tender for octopus, and delicately sweet, with just the right amount of char to add a faint counterbalance of bitterness and a light crunch. Dionysus would have approved. So for my culinary tour of Greece, the birthplace of democracy, I determined to make the Molyvos recipe for moussaka — even though it has 25 ingredients. But it could be worse. I could have gone for the grilled octopus. Moussaka is essentially a layered casserole, with slices of potato on the bottom topped with slices of eggplant. This being a restaurant recipe, the potatoes and eggplant are both fried before layered. You could save calories by baking them (though that would take time) or sautéing them (though that would save fewer calories), but if this is the first time you make the recipe, try frying them. You won’t regret it. The next layer is ground lamb spiced with cinnamon, ginger and allspice cooked in a flavorful tomato sauce. Think of it as a sloppy joe, only exponentially better and considerably less sloppy. The top layer, and this is where restaurant cooking really comes into play, is a ridiculously rich bechamel sauce. Bechamel is a thick white sauce made from butter, flour and milk, but this version dials up the amplitude by adding egg yolks and Greek yogurt. The result is pure ambrosia, to use a Greek term. It’s definitely Molyvosian. A much easier dish, and very nearly as good, is Shrimp With Feta

SHRIMP WITH FETA AND TOMATO Yield: 6 to 8 servings 16 medium raw shrimp 5 tablespoons olive oil 1¾ ounces green onions, including some of the green part, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, chopped

1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes 4 tablespoons chopped Italian (flatleaf) parsley, divided Salt and black pepper 4½ ounces feta, crumbled

Note: This is an appetizer, small portions meant to be shared among several people. 1. Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails intact. Heat the oil in a wide nonstick pan that has a lid and sauté the onion on medium-low heat until softened. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of the parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Put the lid on and simmer for 10 minutes or so. 2. Add the shrimp to the pan and turn to cover all of them with sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes. Scatter in the feta, put the lid back on and cook until the feta just softens, about 5 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice. Serve with a good grind of pepper and the remaining 2 tablespoons of parsley scattered on top, and some lovely Greek bread.

BAKLAVA Yield: About 30 servings 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided 2 tablespoons honey Juice of ½ small lemon 1 strip of lemon peel 2 or 3 small cinnamon sticks 1 cup almonds, chopped fine but with some texture 1 cup walnuts, chopped fine but with some texture 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 22 sheets phyllo pastry (one roll of frozen phyllo) 10 tablespoons (1¼ sticks) unsalted butter, melted to golden brown About 30 whole cloves, for decorating 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. To make the syrup, put 2 cups of the sugar, honey, lemon juice, lemon peel and cinnamon sticks in a saucepan with 1 cup water and bring to a boil, stirring. Lower the heat to simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, then take off the heat and cool. 3. Mix the almonds, walnuts, the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and ground cinnamon together in a bowl. Have the phyllo sheets ready, covered by a dish cloth to prevent them from drying out. Brush the base of an 8½-by-12-inch baking dish with butter. 4. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on a clean work surface and brush with butter (use a pastry brush with soft bristles). Cover with another sheet, brush it with butter and continue in this way until you have a neat stack of 10 sheets. Place these on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread half the nut mixture over the phyllo, patting it down firmly and leveling the surface. 5. Cover with 2 more sheets of phyllo, buttering each one. Scatter the rest of the nuts over evenly and press down gently. Now lay down the last 10 sheets of phyllo, buttering each one, and finishing with the last layer buttered on top. 6. Using a small sharp knife, cut diamonds on the diagonal of about 2½-by-2½ inches. Cut all the way through the layers of phyllo. Flick just a little cold water over the top to prevent the layers from curling up. Stud the center of each diamond with a clove. 7. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until gently golden on top. Gently pour half the syrup all over the baklava. Wait for it to be absorbed, then pour over the rest. Leave to cool totally before serving (remember to tell guests to remove the clove before eating).

MOUSSAKA

Yield: 8 servings

¼ cup dried currants 1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, undrained 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 pound ground lamb 1 teaspoon cayenne ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon ¼ teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon ground allspice Salt and black pepper, to taste 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 medium yellow onions, finely chopped

1 red bell pepper, stemmed, cored and finely chopped 1 cup red wine 1½ cups canola oil 1½ pound eggplant, cut crosswise into ¼-inch slices 1 large russet potato, about 1 pound, cut crosswise into ¼-inch slices 6 tablespoons unsalted butter ½ cup all-purpose flour 2¼ cups milk 1 bay leaf Freshly ground nutmeg, to taste ½ cup plain Greek yogurt 3 egg yolks 1 cup grated parmesan

1. Put currants into a small bowl and cover with boiling water; let soften for 30 minutes. Drain and set aside. Purée the tomatoes in a blender and set aside. 2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Add the lamb, cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer lamb to a large strainer set over a bowl and drain; discard any liquid left in the pot. 3. Return the pot to the heat and add the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil along with the garlic, onions and bell pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost evaporated, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the reserved tomatoes, currants and lamb, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. 4. Heat the canola oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add the eggplant slices and fry, turning occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer slices to paper towels. Working in batches, add the potatoes and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, and transfer to paper towels. 5. Make a béchamel sauce: Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, whisking constantly, until pale and smooth, about 2 minutes. Whisking constantly, add the milk in a steady stream until incorporated; add the bay leaf and cook, whisking often, until reduced to 2 cups, about 15 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg, and discard the bay leaf. Let sauce cool for 5 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and egg yolks and whisk into the sauce until smooth. 6. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place the reserved potato slices in the bottom of a 3-quart baking dish (or two 1½-quart baking dishes) and season with salt and pepper. Put the eggplant slices on top, season with salt and pepper, and then cover with the meat sauce. Pour the béchamel over the top of the meat sauce and spread evenly with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle parmesan evenly over the top and bake until browned and bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Why you should always have some bread in your freezer toppings. Any residual defrosting can happen while you’re heating the bread. Brush with oil and broil in the oven, griddle in an oiled/buttered skillet or heat in your toaster or toaster oven. You can add even more to your feelgood freezer thriftiness by combing through your pantry and refrigerator for odds and ends of cheese, produce and condiments for your toppings. The possibilities are endless.

BY BECKY KRYSTAL The Washington Post

We can eat a lot of bread in my house. But even for two carbivores, a big loaf can sometimes be too much to finish before it starts to go stale. Thank goodness for the freezer. We’re often admonished not to refrigerate bread, which accelerates staling, but the freezer is another matter. It serves as a kind of pause button, meaning fresh bread you move into cold storage can come out almost as good as the day you put it in. The best way to freeze bread (figure on a freezer life of about three months) depends a little bit on what you’re dealing with and what you want to do with it. You always want to start with at least a double layer of protection against freezer burn. Two layers of plastic wrap is usually sufficient; you can also combine plastic wrap with a layer of aluminum foil. I often throw plasticwrapped slices or chunks that are small enough into a plastic zip-top bag for extra insurance and easier

Grind some fresh bread crumbs. You can use your food processor to grind the bread crumbs to freeze later, or you can make them with thawed bread. Bread crumbs can transform a simple bowl of pasta, especially when toasted in a skillet with garlic and olive oil. They can serve as the binder in crab cakes or veggie cakes. They’re the basis of the crispy topping on mac and cheese or the exterior of pan-fried chicken cutlets or baked chicken pieces. Soak it. Counter-thawed bread (presliced or sliced after thawing) is great for French toast or a strata. You can even put them in the bottom of a ramekin or glass as the basis of a berry pudding. So the next time you find a good sale on bread or realize your eyes are bigger than your stomach, know that the freezer is not just a last-ditch option but rather a gateway to a great meal in the future.

Cube it for croutons. So much better than storebought. Let the bread thaw on the counter. Toss or drizzle chunks or cubes of it in olive oil (a flavored one is great if you have it) and crisp on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. You can also toss the bread with some dried herbs or spices before it goes in the oven; be extra indulgent and scatter the chunks with grated cheese before cooking. Croutons are a natural on top of salads or soups. Or you can use them as the basis for a panzanella (bread and tomato salad) in the summer. They’re also an

addictive snack (nope, not speaking from personal experience at all!).

Then throw away your cookbook. There is no reason artichoke hearts, creme de menthe and cinnamon should be in the same recipe. Have you ever started to make a recipe only to have it overcook or go bad when you make a last-minute dash to the store to buy an ingredient you didn’t realize you needed? Have you ever had to have a sauce cooking in a pot longer than it should because you didn’t have the time to dice an onion that you thought you would have? Then you know the sheer terror — and probably the sense of inevitable failure — that comes from not having a proper mise en place. For real chefs, mise en place means more than just having the ingredients ready. It also means having them in the best possible array at their work station. The things they need most often are closest, the items they will use a little less frequently are slightly farther away. For real restaurant chefs, it is all about efficiency, keeping their movements to an absolute minimum. During a crush, it is the only way they can get the food out in time. More importantly, mise en place is a philosophy, a guiding principle, a way of life. It isn’t just that the ingredients must be arrayed in an orderly fashion, it is that the kitchen must be orderly — and by extension, so must our lives. If we are to tackle the task at hand, we must first contemplate it (read the recipe, understand the recipe, know what the recipe needs), then prepare for it (assemble the ingredients that you need) and then work through it efficiently, from start to finish (respect the ingredients, treat them properly and use them in a manner designed to get the most out of them). I will be the first to admit that I am less organized, perhaps monumentally less organized, than I should be. I tend to attack tasks from the middle, and eventually get around to finishing them, if I am lucky. I have raised procrastination to such an art form that the Louvre called and asked for a sample of it. And yes, sometimes when I am cooking I have to keep a sauce in the pot longer than I wanted because I didn’t have time to dice an onion. But I find that when I do my mise en place, which I usually do, the cooking is always smooth. There is no stress, no panic and no mistakes. The food tastes as good as it can, and sometimes better. With mise en place, life is good. Daniel Neman • 314-340-8133 @dnemanfood on Twitter dneman@post-dispatch.com

Bilde won this with the ace! He shifted to a low club after having set the bait. Look at this from declarer’s point of view.

DEAR ABBY

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

Wife of perfect husband cheats

Dear Don’t Feel Guilty • This fling is already out of control. While the excitement may have gone out of your marriage, I guarantee that when Carl gets wind of this — start the countdown now — you’ll have an abundance of it.

If you really value your marriage, start devoting as much energy to working on it as you have been directing toward Brad. Dear Abby • I am in love with a man who is 28 years younger than I am. I’ll call him Albert. We want to get married, but I’m not sure how much the age difference really matters. We have been seeing each other for almost a year, and I know he loves me. We haven’t told anyone except a few people. My son, 28, and my daughter, 40, don’t know how serious we are. My granddaughter knows everything. I know my children may object because of the age difference and the fact that Albert is from another country (in Africa). To me, that doesn’t matter, and it may not to them, but Albert is worried that Immigration may question us. I can’t give him children, but there are other ways we can have a child of our own. I want my kids to be happy for me. — LOST IN LOVE IN NORTH CAROLINA

Dear Lost • That Albert is afraid of the questions Immigration might ask raises a red flag for me. What I think is that if you choose to proceed — as I suspect you probably will — you should be very cautious doing so. Dear Abby • Keeping a journal has been shown to be of significant psychological benefit, but I do not want my private thoughts and concerns read by others after my death. Is this silly of me? I realize I’ll be dead and gone, but the possibility of it happening inhibits me from recording my thoughts and feelings. — PRIVATE IN VIRGINIA Dear Private • Unless you have an executor you can trust to dispose of your journals, my recommendation would be to keep your journals online, in the cloud, and able to be accessed only by you. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Differences: 1. Handle is different. 2. Shoes are different. 3. Neckline is different. 4. Roof is wider. 5. Hair is shorter. 6. Tree trunk is thinner.

Dear Abby • I have a wonderful husband of 11 years and three children. ‘‘Carl” is attentive, caring and always puts the needs of our family first. You could say he is everyone’s dream husband. Long story short, I cheated on him while I was on vacation. It started as innocent flirtation, but then it went further. When ‘‘Brad” kissed me, I knew it wasn’t going to stop there. Afterward, I not only didn’t feel guilty, I did it again. I have been quietly communicating with Brad and sent him revealing photos and a graphic video of myself. Please help me understand why I am cheating on such a wonderful husband. Shouldn’t I feel guilty? What can I do to stop this before it gets out of control? — DON’T FEEL GUILTY

TV WEDNESDAY

CAROLYN HAX

What’s one spoiler between readers? Dear Carolyn • My boyfriend and I are both avid readers and he recently finished a book by a wellknown author with a very distinct writing style. He decided to read a new book by this same author, which I have already read. When we were sitting down last Sunday to read over coffee, he pulled out his book, to which I said, “That book is wild! I think you are going to like it.” He got upset that I ruined his chance at having an unadulterated first impression while reading it. I replied, “I’m sorry you feel that way, but I really didn’t mean to ruin anything, and I don’t think I did ruin anything — this author has a wild writing style.” This, in his eyes, was a non-apology, which I admitted it was. It led us to a conversation about how beholden the offender ought to be to apologize when they think there has been an overreaction. I know overreaction is totally in the

eye of the beholder, but even my boyfriend admitted his reaction was a bit much. If someone overreacts, can the original offender let them know they think that? Is that unfeeling? Or does it just totally depend on the situation? — Wild Readers Answer • If anything, it’s the opposite — it totally depends on the aggregate. When you take each situation individually, there’s always a way to spin it into one person’s overreaction, or, from the other side, one person’s dismissiveness of the other’s feelings. Especially when both of you think you’re right, it can be hard to tell who actually is — and in that little gap is where so many abusers or potential abusers plant seeds of self-doubt. When you take situations as a group, though, you get a remarkably clear picture of overreactions and how to respond to them.

7:00

7/11/18

Let’s say an avid-reader friend has one overreaction to one generic comment on one book in one situation. In that case, the apt response forms itself. “[pause, raise eyebrows] “You OK?” Because that’s what you tend to wonder when an otherwise reasonable person has taken leave of his or her sense of proportion. If instead an avid-reader friend overreacts on a regular but also unpredictable basis — to the point where you find yourself trying to choose your words in advance so as to avoid triggering such overreactions, and/or the ensuing accusations of non-apology apologies, and/or follow-up conversations about ways you can be wrong in an argument even when you’re right — then it’s time to form a different, equally apt response: Know manipulation when you see it, and get out.

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Bacteria exposure comes through water FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • I read your recent column about “flesh-eating bacteria.” Is it in any way related to Mycobacterium marinum? My son is having multiple surgeries due to this, which was finally and correctly diagnosed after many weeks. It came on slowly over months and has caused his hand to swell up greatly. He remembered that he did get a cut on his hand while fixing a home water line that was in soil. He was told that it is rare, but it occurs all over this country. There is a creek near us, and recently a local newspaper announced that there was a “life-threatening” bacteria discovered in that creek, which empties into a local waterway. His treatment was intravenous continuously for over a week, and now three strong antibiotics to be taken for at least a year. Meanwhile, he continues with some surgery. — N.F.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

CORNERED • By Mike Baldwin NON SEQUITUR • By Wiley Miller

Answer • Mycobacterium marinum is a bacteria species closely related to tuberculosis. It is not related to the type of “flesheating” bacteria you read about periodically in the newspaper; those are group A streptococcus, which grows very rapidly (people can go from appearing well to being dead in hours) and needs immediate identification and surgery to treat; M. marinum grows slowly. It is uniquely related to water exposure, especially from fish tanks (both fresh and saltwater). However, it has been reported after exposure to oysters and fish spines and occasionally in swimming pools. Treatment for M. marinum usually includes two or more antibiotics taken for months. Your son’s infection is worse than I have heard of, requiring surgery and antibiotics lasting over a year. I looked up your local creek: It is contaminated by fecal bacteria (presumably from untreated sewage), not by M. marinum. I hope your son does well.

Dear Dr. Roach • I had prostate cancer, treated with freezing. I have not had an erection since, despite trying Viagra and injections. Nothing has worked in two years. My doctor said it might last six months to a year. Could there be something wrong with me medically? — W.K.E.

MARK TRAIL • By James Allen

Answer • Even when performed by the best doctors, there is a risk of permanent erectile dysfunction with any kind of prostate cancer treatment. This is true even with cryotherapy for prostate cancer; the risk of losing sexual function still is significant. Given a lack of effect with injections and oral medications, you should talk to your urologist about a vacuum device or a penile prosthesis.
