NEW GOP HEALTH CARE BILL

WaSHiNGTON • Republican leaders presented a new health care bill Thursday in their increasingly desperate efort to deliver on seven years of promises to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. They immediately lost two key Senate votes, leaving none to spare as the party’s own divisions put its top campaign pledge in serious jeopardy. President Donald Trump declared a day earlier that failure would make him “very angry” and that he would blame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. But talking with reporters aboard Air Force One en route to France, Trump also acknowledged the challenges lawmakers face.

City employers face dilemma: Cut pay for minimum wage workers or not?

MARGARITAVILLE AT THE LAKE

Schnucks to reverse hike when law changes Aug. 28 By ULiaNa PaVLOVa St. Louis Post-Dispatch

For the past 10 weeks, workers in the city of St. Louis have been entitled to a wage of at least $10 an hour. That changes on Aug. 28, when the local minimum wage drops back to the state’s minimum of $7.70. Employers in the city now must decide: Cut their afected workers’ wages or continue paying the $10 rate? A handful of employers contacted by the Post-Dispatch said they won’t change their workers’ pay, even though they opposed the local minimum wage ordinance. Others, however, will reverse the pay hike. That includes Schnuck Markets Inc., the Maryland Heights-based grocery chain.

Tan-Tar-A Resort, a popular Lake of the Ozarks hotel and conference center for more than a half-century, will undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation and be rebranded as a Margaritaville hotel, the chain of resorts named for singer Jimmy Buffett’s best-selling song. The 500-room Osage Beach resort 185 miles southwest of St. Louis is joining a growing list of Margaritaville hotels located primarily in coastal vacation spots, including Key West and the Cayman Islands. Its new name effective March 2019 will be Tan-Tar-A, a Margaritaville Resort, said the resort’s longtime general manager Fred Dehner. All 500 of the resort’s employees are being retained, he said, and new food and beverage employees See RESORT • Page a5

PaRiS • President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron set aside lingering differences on climate change during their meeting in France on Thursday, asserting that it shouldn’t prevent them from working together toward a postwar road map for Syria and to enhance Mideast security. Trump, standing alongside Macron at a news conference, said the two nations had “occasional disagreements” but that that would not disrupt a friendship that dates back to the American Revolution. He remained noncommittal about the United States’ eventually rejoining the global climate agreement that bears Paris’ name, telling Macron, “If it happens that will be wonderful, and if it

McCulloch changes tune on corruption TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Bob McCulloch the op-ed writer might want to have a little talk with Bob McCulloch the prosecutor. The former wants to crack down on unethical behavior by public servants. The latter appears to be knee-deep in it. On Sunday, the Post-Dispatch’s Stephen Deere reported that McCulloch, the St. Louis County prosecutor, and County Executive Steve Stenger sought to change county pension ordinances so that when McCulloch retires, the prosecutor’s pension will pay more than it otherwise would have. The changes, passed in November by an irresponsibly ill-informed County Council at Stenger’s request, could ofer a significant boost to McCulloch’s pension. McCulloch, who was one of Stenger’s largest donors in his run for county executive, acknowledges he discussed making changes to the law with a “council member.” A couple of months later, before anybody fully understood Stenger’s plan to pad McCulloch’s pension, the prosecu-

tor was stumping for a new law that could crack down on similar behavior. In the most recent legislative session, state Sen. Bob Dixon, R-Springfield, sponsored Senate Bill 176, which would strengthen oicial misconduct laws, add harsher penalties, and give the state auditor more authority to work with prosecutors to crack down on such ofenses. The bill didn’t pass. But in April, as it was still being debated, McCulloch co-signed an op-ed that appeared in this newspaper with state Auditor Nicole Galloway calling for lawmakers to pass it. “Missourians cannot tolerate corrupt public officials who seek office to serve themselves at the expense of taxpayers,” the authors wrote. A portion of the proposed law seems like it could well have been written to address Stenger’s unapologetic use of his public oice to financially reward his most important political ally. The bill says a public official commits the crime of “public misconduct” in the “first degree” if he or she: “Knowingly exercises an oicial function relating to his or her oice … for the purpose of obtaining an improper, undue, or unreasonable financial benefit for himself or herself or another.” Stenger, who has made a habit of us-

ing his oice to benefit his top campaign donors, would only quibble with whether the benefit he obtained for his friend was “improper, undue, or unreasonable.” He told Deere that the padded pension for McCulloch, who gave about $100,000 in in-kind donations to Stenger, was “an act of fairness and appreciation for a lifetime of faithful service to the public.” Think about what that means: If you serve in government long enough, and happen to be a “Friend of Steve,” Stenger believes you deserve special benefits. Taxpayers, and voters, might see it differently. It was just a short three years ago during Stenger’s campaign to unseat fellow Democrat Charlie Dooley from the county’s top job that Stenger and McCulloch were throwing around the “corruption” word like candy in describing various Dooley actions that appeared to benefit donors and political allies. Key among the allegedly corrupt actions was the awarding of a construction contract by the county to a company owned by the chairman of the county police board, a Dooley appointee. In that case, the FBI investigated and cleared Dooley of wrongdoing. That didn’t stop McCulloch from recording television commercials for

Stenger in which he said: “This kind of corruption is a disgrace.” Three years later, the disgrace is that the prosecutor appears oblivious to the eau de corruption within the county administration building. Meanwhile, McCulloch is maintaining a mirage created out of thin air by Stenger that the prosecutor is considering charges against the new county auditor for being unqualified, or several Metro security oicers for impersonating peace oicers. Asked about those investigations, McCulloch said in an emailed statement: “Both are still under review.” The longer McCulloch allows the investigative cloud to hang over those politically charged issues with no clarity, the more it looks like payback for his payday, courtesy of the county executive he helped elect. Three years ago, McCulloch might have called such actions “a disgrace.” Three months ago, he was seeking to increase the penalties applied to “corrupt public oicials.” As his now more lucrative retirement nears, McCulloch is reading from a diferent script.

Santana brings exhilarating, sold-out show to the Fox BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

CONCERT REVIEW

Santana’s genre-bending sold-out concert Wednesday night at the Fox Theatre would have been epic enough on its own merit. But a surprise appearance by the Isley Brothers pushed it even deeper into legendary status. To be fair, anyone who follows either artist closely might’ve predicted a special pairing of these Rock and Roll Hall of Fame greats. They’ve joined forces on a new album, “Power of Peace,” out July 28. And the Isley Brothers are local, so an appearance by Ronald Isley and guitarist Ernie Isley was nearly expected. But to witness it was a marvel, as they gave a miniset previewing an album of mostly remakes. Onstage, Carlos Santana described it as “songs to change the consciousness of the United States.” Santana brought the Isley Brothers out as the “Power of Peace” album cover was displayed behind them. The two entities wowed, their distinct styles standing out brilliantly yet blending efortlessly with songs including Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground,” Swamp Dogg’s “Total Destruction to Your Mind” and Burt Bacharach’s often covered “What the World Needs Now.” The one original track on the album, “I Remember,” features the first-time vocals of Santana’s wife, Cindy Blackman Santana (also the Santana band drummer). The distinctive ballad was marred by what seemed to be microphone issues that failed to elevate her soft, earthy vocals properly, though the overall feel came across, garnering a standing ovation. Santana’s “Transmogrify Tour” follows a 2016 reunion tour and features the classic lineup. This time, it was Ray Greene (vocals), Andy Vargas (vocals), David K. Mathews (keyboards), Benny Rietveld (bass), Karl Perazzo (percussion), Paoli Mejais (percussion) and Tommy Anthony (guitars/vocals). It was doubtful anyone in the crowd felt anything

was missing as the band laid out its Latin, pop and rock rhythms for well over two hours. The concert was an exhilarating rush, a true tour de force of vibrant musicianship, knockout solos and killer percussion. The band came out blazing on “O Paradiso” and “Love Makes the World Go Round” as vintage Santana clips were shown. Carlos Santana has lost none of his potency, as several of his solos demonstrated. “Maria Maria” (the backbone of the new DJ Khaled hit “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller) was a jump-toyour-feet moment that included Carlos Santana playing directly to a few women in the front row. “Foo Foo,” “Corazon Espinado” and “Europa” paved the way for “Jingo,” a percussionist’s dream backed by images of African tribal dancing, and “Evil Ways,” which segued into John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme.” “Toussaint L’Overture” was Santana’s extended musical nod to the leader of the Haitian Revolution. “Black Magic Woman”/“Gypsy Queen” and “Oye Como Va,” which still resonate, gave those in the crowd what they were waiting for late in the show. Woodstock footage featuring Santana kicked off the strong encore marked by “Smooth,” naturally; a version of “Soul Sacrifice” followed by a dynamic six-minute drum solo from Cindy Blackman Santana; and band introductions that incorporated the Police’s “Roxanne.” The Isley Brothers — with Ronald Isley’s wife, Kandy Isley, on backing vocals — returned for “Love, Peace, Happiness,” a “Power of Peace” song that originated with the Chambers Brothers. Ronald Isley incorporated bits of the Isley Brothers’ “It’s Your Thing” into it as Ernie Isley and Carlos Santana exchanged dreamy guitar rifs.

St. Louisans get Emmy nods Two St. Louisans have been nominated for Emmy awards: Sterling K. Brown, for outstanding lead actor in a drama series, for “This Is Us” (NBC); and Ellie Kemper, for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, for “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (Netflix). Breakout series “This Is Us” received 11 nods, including the first best-drama series nomination for a broadcast network show since 2011. A record-breaking year for “Saturday Night Live” paid of in a big way: NBC’s 42-year-old sketch comedy series walked away with 22 nominations, tied with HBO’s “Westworld” for the most nods of any show. Alec Baldwin’s SNL portrayal of President Donald Trump landed him a nomination for best supporting actor in a comedy, and Melissa McCarthy’s headline-making turn as Sean Spicer no doubt fueled her to a nod for guest actress in a comedy, earned for an episode she hosted in May. Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” tied for the second-most nominations with 18, while HBO’s “Veep” was close behind with 17. The Emmys are scheduled to air Sept. 17 on CBS, with Stephen Colbert as host. Twain to headline at U.S. Open • Shania Twain will headline the opening-night ceremony at the U.S. Open. She will perform Aug. 28 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The top-selling country artist will sing some of her biggest hits and songs from her upcoming album “NOW,” to be released Sept. 29. King and U.S. Tennis Association chair Katrina Adams will kick of the 20th anniversary celebration of Arthur Ashe Stadium, which opened in 1997.

Lawmakers seek inquiry into Backpage McCaskill, Wagner ask Justice Department for criminal investigation after new report BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-dispatch

WASHINGTON • U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner and Sen. Claire McCaskill are asking the Department of Justice to investigate the online site Backpage for what Wagner says was “knowingly advertising and financially benefiting from participation in sex traicking.” Their requests, which were made separately with colleagues in the House and Senate, come on the heels of a Washington Post story that cites an unrelated Kansas City lawsuit alleging that a contractor for the website solicits and creates sex ads for Backpage. The site, which has been the target of multiple congressional and legal initiatives, says it is merely a host of others’ communications and therefore protected under the First Amendment. “Backpage.com has long argued that it is a mere third-party platform with no responsibility

for the sex trafficking ads that are posted on its website,” said a letter sent Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions by Wagner, R-Ballwin, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. “This is an utter lie, as has been made clear by both the new revelations from The Washington Post and a January 2017 Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations report on Backpage.com that exposed the website for actively facilitating illegal ads.” The Senate subcommittee report was prepared by McCaskill, D-Mo., and Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio. It alleged, among other things, that Backpage automatically filters out words in ads that could indicate that the site was offering sex with children, undermining its First Amendment defenses. In their own letter to Sessions, McCaskill and Portman — joined by Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del. — asked for a “criminal review” of Backpage. The letter said that McCaskill and Portman

had “determined that there is reasonable cause to believe that violations of law may have occurred in connection with these matters.” The Washington Post story described a process where ads for the site are allegedly solicited and shaped by the host, contrary to Backpage’s claims. “Despite this evidence, Backpage.com continues to hide behind a misinterpretation of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 in state cases and civil suits, as it has done for years in response to these complaints about its criminal content,” Wagner and Maloney said in their letter to Sessions. They are sponsoring legislation in Congress that would “amend Section 230 to clarify that the law does not provide protection to websites that facilitate sex traicking,” they told Sessions. That is in reference to the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Traicking Act

LAW & ORDER

of 2017,” which has almost 30 bipartisan co-sponsors. Liz McDougall, a lawyer for Backpage, said she would have no comment on the letters to the Justice Department. But she called the Washington Post story “grossly misleading.” “Nothing in the (newspaper’s) sensationalist allegations contradicts the fact that Backpage does not create ads, merely hosts them,” she said. Many members of the St. Louis-area delegation have become involved in eforts to combat human traicking and the sex trade. McCaskill and Portman last year pushed through a rare contempt of the Senate action against Backpage after it refused, on First Amendment grounds, to provide documents or testimony to a Senate investigating committee. A federal judge later ruled that the company needed to comply with those requests, and McCaskill and Portman released their scathing report in January.

ST. LOUIS > Shooting victim identiied • Police on Thursday identiied a man fatally shot in an apartment last week as Darryl Smith, 57, of the 3100 block of Franklin Avenue in the JefVanderLou neighborhood. Prosecutors last week charged Barry Anderson, 55, with irst-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful gun possession in Smith’s death. Smith was pronounced dead inside an apartment about 10:20 p.m. Anderson July 5 in the 3100 block of Franklin Avenue. The apartment building is near Jordan Chambers Park. Police said Anderson went to Smith’s apartment July 5 and shot him. Anderson was shot in the foot during the argument. Anderson lives in the same block of the shooting. He is jailed without bail.

ST. LOUIS > Charges in hit-and-run crash • Prosecutors have charged a St. Louis County man in a fatal hit-and-run crash last November. Michael D. Griin, 27, of the 11900 block of Sagunto Terrace in the Spanish Lake area of St. Louis County, was charged Tuesday with involuntary manslaughter and leaving the scene of a crash. Court documents say Griin’s vehicle was speeding between 71 and 78 mph north on Hall Street near Gimblin Road about 11:20 p.m. on Nov. 26 when he hit pedestrian Jaron Butler and didn’t stop. Butler, 27, died at the scene. Butler lived in the 4600 block of Bessie Avenue in St. Louis. Charges say St. Louis County police stopped Griin’s vehicle and found “numerous spots of blood and biological materials as well as heavy damage” on the vehicle. Griin’s bail was set at $250,000, cash only. A jail photo was not available Thursday.

ST. LOUIS > Agency opens investigations of alleged sexual violence at Washington U. • The U.S. Department of Education Oice of Civil Rights opened three investigations at colleges in Missouri this week exploring alleged incidents of sexual violence, including two cases at Washington University. The third investigation was opened at Baptist Bible College, a ministry school in Springield, Mo. A spokesperson for Washington University said in a statement Wednesday it had received a notice from the department on Wednesday alerting leaders to the investigations. “We will be responsive and work to resolve these cases as quickly as possible,” the statement said. “Because of the nature of the investigations, we cannot provide any further detail.”

ST. LOUIS > Woman gets 34 months in ID thefts • A woman from St. Louis County was sentenced Thursday in federal court here to 34 months in prison for stealing the identities of United HealthCare customers and using them to ile credit applications. Robin D. Matthews was working for United HealthCare and accessed the records of at least 75 people between May 2015 and February 2016 and used that information to submit 229 credit card applications, prosecutors have said. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Berry said in court Thursday that Matthews didn’t tell the company she had a prior felony case involving her use of someone’s identity to get a $6,500 loan. When United HealthCare found out, she was terminated, Berry said. After her indictment and arrest in May 2016, Matthews was prohibited from any employment that would give her access to “third party identifying information,” but she applied for a health care job. After a background check turned up the charges, she falsely claimed to be a victim of identity theft herself and altered a document using the name of a pretrial services oicer to try to prove it, charging documents say. That earned her a new identity theft charge in September. Matthews, then 52, pleaded guilty to mail fraud, access device fraud, identity theft and two counts of aggravated identity theft in February. In addition to the prison time, U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey ordered her to repay $4,670 to two credit card companies.

HAZELWOOD > House ire leaves woman badly injured • A woman was critically injured in a house ire Thursday morning in the 800 block of Belllower Drive. The unidentiied woman was taken to Mercy Medical Center with burns and smoke inhalation, said Fire Chief Dave Herman. Herman said the ire, reported about 8 a.m., fully engulfed the single-family home. It started in the back of the house, he said. Herman said the woman’s husband was able to get her out of the home, to a front porch area, but she was still enveloped in smoke from the ire when ireighters found her and got her the rest of the way to safety. Battalion Chief Tom Stone said the woman was burned as she tried to reach the front of the house. Her husband and granddaughter were not injured, Stone said. The cause is under investigation. Herman said the blaze appears to be accidental and not suspicious. One of two dogs in the home died in the ire.

BackStoppers to help family of St. Louis ire captain who died FROM STAFF REPORTS

ST. LOUIS > Man killed by gunire is identiied • Police have identiied a man fatally shot Monday in the city’s Fox Park neighborhood as William Duke, 38. Duke and a woman, 27, were shot about 2 a.m. in the 2600 block of Sidney Street, police said. Police said Duke died at the scene from a gunshot wound to the chest. Police said Duke’s last known address was unknown. The woman was shot in her knee. Police said the gunman led in a vehicle but have not yet said if they have identiied a suspect.

This week, the House passed three pieces of legislation in this area, one of which was sponsored by Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Harrisonville, and co-sponsored by Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis. Clay said St. Louis is one of the nation’s top-20 markets for the sex trade because it’s at the nexus of many east-west and north-south transportation networks. And in 2016, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., got Congress to increase federal spending to aid victims of sex traicking from $15.8 million to $18.8 million, its current annual level. McDougall has argued that by attacking Backpage, Congress and the courts are making it harder to combat sex traicking by driving it further underground. Backpage has argued that it can be a help to law enforcement because its ads are out in the open.

RICHMOND HEIGHTS > Carjacker pushes woman from Camry • Police are searching for a man who pushed past a woman as she was getting out of her vehicle and drove of in the 1100 block of Brentwood Boulevard on Thursday. The carjacking happened at 12:30 p.m., according to Richmond Heights police Capt. Gerry Rohr. The woman was getting out of a 1999 white Toyota Camry when a man pushed her out of the way and implied that he had a gun but never displayed one, Rohr said. The man then drove of in the vehicle northbound on Brentwood Boulevard. The woman was not injured. The license plate on the vehicle is Missouri UD2 D9V. The vehicle has minor rear-end damage. Anyone with information regarding the vehicle is asked to call Richmond Heights Police Department at 314-655-3630 or 911.

Kemper didn’t sufer any burns. He was admitted to the hospital with what was believed to be a shoulder injury. He was released from the hospital Friday and had not been cleared to return to work. The department did not disclose the cause of death or say what injuries he sufered. BackStoppers is a St. Louis area nonprofit organization, founded in 1959 by businessmen concerned about the financial consequences for the spouses and children of police and firefighters who died in the line of duty. Kemper was promoted to captain in 2008. He is survived by a wife, a daughter and two grand-

sons. “We lost a first responder who gave his life to his work,” Ron Battelle, executive director of the BackStoppers, said in a news release. “Capt. Kemper was a man dedicated to protecting others. We will now step in and help his family during these difficult times and for years to come.” BackStoppers now helps 82 families with 66 dependent children. Because the Fire Department deemed it a line-of-duty death, Battelle said he got approval from BackStoppers’ board Thursday morning to support Kemper’s family. “If it’s determined to be line of duty death by the fire department, then we would jump in there” to help, Battelle added. Battelle said BackStoppers also uses guidelines that are used to determine federal benefits for police and firefighters, such as the death is covered “if you died when you’re of duty and it’s tied back to on-duty situations.” Battelle said the benefits in this case could include paying the surviving spouse’s mortgage, health insurance, homeowners insurance and property taxes.

Former Webster Groves teacher gets probation for promoting prostitution BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-dispatch

WEBSTER GROVES • A former

teacher at a Webster Groves middle school helped promote the prostitution of two women and paid roughly 30 to 40 women for sex in the last three years, prosecutors claim in court documents filed late last month. Those documents were filed on June 26, just three days before Robert L. Wilson, 46, entered an Alford plea to a charge of promotWilson ing prostitution in the third degree. The Alford plea means Wilson admitted no guilt but agreed that prosecutors had evidence sufficient to get a conviction. St. Louis County Circuit Judge Kristine A. Kerr suspended the imposition of his sentence and ordered Wilson to serve five years of probation and perform 80 hours of community service. He must get a sex ofender evaluation and register as a sex offender, court records show. Wilson’s lawyer didn’t respond to messages seeking comment Thursday. Wilson, a Spanish teacher at Hixson Middle School since 1999, was suspended indefinitely last summer after he was charged. The case did not involve any other staf members or students, a spokeswoman said at the time. Charging documents say Wilson, of the 4100 block of Utah

Street in St. Louis, helped a prostitute solicit customers and provided transportation and security. She was arrested Jan. 20, 2016, after he drove her to a Fenton hotel, documents say. They didn’t know that an undercover detective was the one who’d responded to the ad. Prosecutors say Wilson met the woman several years before his arrest through the classified ads website Backpage.com, and paid her three to four times for sex at the beginning of their relationship. He had been driving her to “locations to engage in prostitution” for about a year before his arrest, the documents claim, and entered buildings to make sure she was safe. Wilson met another woman on Backpage.com and helped her place “nearly” five ads and drove her to one meeting, the documents say. He also ofered to help a third woman post ads, the documents say. Prosecutors claim that in all, Wilson paid about 30 to 40 women for sex acts in three years. A school official said Wilson is no longer employed by the district. Wilson still has his teaching credentials, according to Missouri’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, but he is listed as having no staing assignment in either the 2016-17 or 2017-18 school years.

DIGEST HAZELWOOD > School district, ACLU to hold workshop on First Amendment • Two months ago, the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri was prepared to take the Hazelwood School District to court for suspending dozens of students who walked out in support of unionized teachers. Now, the district and ACLU are holding a community workshop together about the First Amendment in schools. The workshop will be 6-8 p.m. July 31 at the Hazelwood administration building, 15955 New Halls Ferry Road. The suspensions of about 200 Hazelwood West High students in May sparked outcry from students, parents and civil rights activists who viewed the incident as a violation of freedom of speech. After three days of heavy community pressure, the district rescinded the suspensions. The workshop’s speakers include Hazelwood Superintendent Nettie CollinsHart, ACLU of Missouri Executive Director Jefrey Mittman and two Washington University School of Law professors: Gregory Maragian and Eric Miller. The event will be moderated by alumnus Reece Ellis, who graduated from Hazelwood East High this year. (Kristen Taketa) FLORISSANT > Council urges repeal of ‘right to work’ • The City Council has unanimously approved a resolution calling for the repeal of Missouri’s “right to work” law. The council passed the measure Monday. Missouri became the 28th state to ratify such legislation in February. Under the law, employees of unionized companies cannot be mandated to join, but must receive the same beneits as a union employee without membership or paying fees. The council also “enthusiastically supports” a MoveOn petition with almost 75,000 signatures to block its implementation, scheduled for August. The AFL-CIO is also working to collect 90,000 signatures to put the law to a vote by the public. In its resolution, the council charges the law makes it more diicult for workers to organize, destabilizes unions’ power, impedes raising money to work on behalf of all employees, and threatens the general welfare of employees and their work conditions.

(Special to the Post-Dispatch) SUNSET HILLS > Proposal for ‘stand-up’ slide rejected • The Board of Aldermen has turned down a proposal to add a “stand-up” water slide at the city’s aquatic center. Parks Director Gerald Brown sought approval to apply for a Municipal Parks Grant for $385,000 to $550,000 for a water slide at the aquatic facility on West Watson Road. The water slide, depending on whether it was an open-lume or stand-up, was expected to cost $700,000 to $845,000. While popular in Europe and the Middle East, a stand-up water slide would be the irst in the nation, Brown said. A slide was originally proposed for the aquatic facility, but it was deemed too expensive at the time, he said. The city has had success with these grants in the past, including the $351,000 one that was awarded last year for a walking trail in Kitun Park. Brown believes that by partnering with Grantwood Village, the city would have a better chance at getting the grant. The proposal was voted down with little

soon to be ex-wife had been advised by her attorney not to sign until she was guaranteed 50% of his inheritance. The husband argued that this was his inheritance and not hers. The closing was delayed. After weeks of haggling and considerable pressure from his siblings, the husband agreed to her demands. Then the day before closing, the wife’s attorney notiied the title company that his client would not sign the deed until she had the check in her hand. Typically, the title company would disburse the funds in 10 checks, each made payable to the heir and their spouse. This was not acceptable to the attorney. So, the title company came up with the solution.

In the mid 1990’s, I met with two sisters and who, with their brother had inherited 120 acres of Franklin County land. On the day of the meeting, both husbands accompanied me and during the land inspection one bragged about his deer hunting experiences on the property. Afterwards, the sisters and I sat down at the kitchen table while the two husbands stayed in the living room.

The proceeds would be paid out in twenty checks, rather than ten. Each heir and their spouse would receive a check, but that check would be made payable to both parties. So, the heir and their spouse would have to endorse each check before either check could be cashed.

et’s say you have three kids and are planning to give them the farm. If all three are married, did you know you are really leaving the land to six people? How?

The Missouri courts have made it clear that a spouse has “ownership” in real property inherited or gifted to their spouse. Their name does not have to appear in the will or on the deed. There are few exceptions and your lawyer can tell you about them. Here are a few incidents where unreasonable spouses turned an inheritance into an unpleasant event.

The sisters and I talked about the property and when I explained that the title company would require the spouses to sign the deed, a loud voice came from the living room, “I’m not signing a thing!” It was the deer hunting spouse! His wife appeared embarrassed but didn’t say a word. I repeated my point and again I heard, “if I have to sign the deed, then it ain’t selling.” With that, I thanked them for their time and left. During the following two weeks the other sister and her brother called me several times. They desperately wanted to sell. They had tried to reason with the brother-in-law and even offered to sell their share to him, but he said no. Time passed and a few years later his wife died. Now he owned a full one-third interest in the property. Today, the remaining sister and her brother are joint owners with the brother-in-law in a much damaged relationship. This was not the intent of their late parents. Several years ago, I sold a Warren County farm that had been inherited by 10 children. The contract was signed by the 10 children, but only 9 spouses. That’s when I learned that one of the heirs was getting a divorce and his

At the closing, the husband and soon to be ex-wife sat across the table from each other with their attorneys along with 9 other couples. The title company gave the deed to the husband, which he signed. The deed was then handed to the ex-wife along with one of the two checks made payable to her and her husband. She signed the deed and endorsed her check. The husband endorsed his check. Then each slowly slid their endorsed check across the table until their hands were on both checks. Then they slowly pulled back the exchanged check and their attorneys veriied that the other had actually endorsed the back. As I look back, this was one of the strangest (and funniest) closings I had ever witness. The checks were exchanged much like a prisoner exchange. This could not have been what the late parents would have wanted! All of these problems could have been avoided. If you are planning to will your real estate to the kids, consult with an attorney.

Frustration high for employees and workers WAGE • FROM A1

“Wages that were adjusted at our eight St. Louis city stores when the city initially enacted the ordinance will revert to the pay scale that’s been agreed to in our teammates’ union contracts,” says Paul Simon, a Schnucks spokesman. For Dennis Shaw, a customer service clerk at Culinaria, the Schnucks-owned downtown grocery, that means his hourly pay will likely drop to $8.30 an hour. Shaw, 36, said he comes from a proud tradition of union workers. One of his grandfathers was in the police union; a great-grandfather was in a railroad union. Since joining Local 655 of the United Food and Commercial Workers, Shaw has been an outspoken advocate for worker’s rights, even testifying in front of a state Senate committee in early May. Shaw strongly disagrees with the Legislature’s move to interfere with a local decision. “We are St. Louis. We work here. We live here. We should be able to make valid decisions here of our own and we know

what’s best for us,” Shaw said. The Board of Aldermen approved the minimum wage ordinance in 2015, but it didn’t go into efect until May 5 of this year, after surviving court challenges. The Republican-led Legislature, however, subsequently approved legislation to nullify the local ordinance. Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican who opposed the local wage increase, announced on June 30 he would allow that bill to become law without his signature. Shaw says the move by Jefferson City went beyond politics; it has real-life implications. “The minimum wage cut is demoralizing,” Shaw said. “It will not only decrease my standard of living drastically by hundreds of dollars, almost $300 a month. But it will also take away a lot of inner fire and spirit to be doing the good work that I do.” Local 655 spokesman Collin Reischman says the union will press for a higher starting wage in contract talks. “We anticipate that the starting rate will be negotiated to a higher level and the time between raises will be reduced,” he said.

Concern about the efect of a wage cut on employees is keeping others from following Schnucks’ example. Andy Karandzieff, owner of Crown Candy Kitchen, was an outspoken opponent of the ordinance and was frustrated that he had to pay higher wages for his two minimum wage employees who are still in high school. However, he said he is not going to lower their pay rates even after the ordinance is repealed. He said he’s uncertain if he’d pay new employees $10 per hour. Many businesses said the city’s minimum wage hike put them at a competitive disadvantage with businesses outside the city. Michael Meuser, owner of Pogue Label & Screen, a manufacturer in the Patch neighborhood on the far south side, was one of those business owners. “I am not against the higher minimum wage per se. What I am against is individual municipalities determining their own minimum wage on a very small scale,” Meuser said. “If the federal authorities feel like a $10 or $15 per hour wage is man-

dated, I am quite comfortable with that as long as it provides a playing field for my company against our competitors.” At any given time Meuser hires 10 to 12 temporary workers in addition to his almost 30-person full-time staf, to help out at the packaging plant. After the St. Louis minimum wage ordinance passed, Meuser decided to cut back on hiring temps. But he says he has no plans to roll back the $10 pay for entry-level positions. On Friday, a coalition of groups, including Show Me $15, Missouri Jobs with Justice and others, plans to launch a petition drive to encourage local employers to keep paying at least $10 an hour. Businesses that agree to keep the minimum at $10 will be lauded on the campaign’s website and can display signs showing their support. Employers that refuse may face protests and possible boycotts, organizers with the “Save the Raise” campaign told The Associated Press.

Libraries will ofer online high school for adults

PHOTO BY MICHAEL THOMAS

Visitors use the computers Wednesday at the Emerson Technology Center in the Natural Bridge branch of St. Louis County Library. Area libraries will launch an online high school program.

SCHOOL • FROM A1

for libraries. The libraries consider the program valuable because it provides a real high school diploma, not a GED or other high school equivalency certificate, from an accredited online school. “This is something where libraries see their role not just as places where you go to read, but as places that are community education hubs,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager of Gale. St. Louis County Library Director Kristen Sorth said the St. Louis region lacks education options for adults. There are several programs for high school-age dropouts and programs to earn an equivalency credential like a GED, but Sorth couldn’t find good options for older adults. “There are some programs out there that address younger indi-

viduals who dropped out,” Sorth said. “But there’s really nothing for individuals ages 25 years and older.” The library found that more than 56,000 adults older than 25 in St. Louis County lack a high school diploma, according to census figures. Researchers widely agree there are significant economic and health disadvantages associated with an incomplete high school education. And while adults who earn GEDs are about as likely as those with diplomas to be employed full time, adults with diplomas are more likely to earn higher wages, according to a 2007 policy brief by the National Commission on Adult Literacy. “In order to get ahead, (students) really need that high school education to get the better-paying jobs,” Gazzolo said. “Unfortunately, once you’re 21, you’ve aged out of the education

system, and there really aren’t good options for you.” The St. Louis County Library’s announcement comes about two weeks after Gov. Eric Greitens signed a bill that directs the state department of education to facilitate the opening of four brickand-mortar adult high schools, which would be the first such schools in Missouri. One of those schools will be in St. Louis. The library will use an online program called Career Online High School, which was developed by Smart Horizons, an online education company based in Florida. The online school is accredited by AdvancEd, a nonprofit that Florida recognizes as a school accrediting agency. Gale adapted the program for the library market in 2014. “We wanted this to be something that was viewed as good as high school,” Gazzolo said. About 2,000 students cur-

rently participate in Career Online High School in more than 100 libraries nationwide. Every student gets paired with a certified teacher, whom students can consult online for help. Gazzolo said the program has a 60 percent completion rate, “which is impressive considering the fact that 100 percent of people going through the program have not made it through high school.” Students on average take 10 months to finish it. Gale also reports that more than 80 percent of students who complete the program say they plan to enroll in postsecondary education or training. The St. Louis County and city libraries will offer full scholarships, which will cover the costs of $1,255 per person, for 57 county residents and 31 city residents, according to Sorth. To apply, residents must have a library card, be at least 25 years old and

will be hired for a Margaritaville restaurant and LandShark Bar & Grill that are being added. On June 29, Miami investment firm Driftwood Acquisitions & Development acquired Tan-Tar-A Resort from Bethesda, Md.-based CWCapital with joint venture partner Sefira Capital, a Miami-based investment boutique, the companies announced Thursday. Driftwood has a licensing agreement with Margaritaville Holdings, Bufett’s company. Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed. Bufett, 70, the flip-flops-wearing creator of “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and other songs, has expanded his business empire to include real estate, alcoholic beverages and restaurants. The resort will remain open while the property is renovated to incorporate Margaritaville’s “casual-luxe” design elements, Driftwood said in its announcement, but specific upgrade details were not released. Margaritaville hotels tout themselves as “laid back, welcoming atmospheres.” Driftwood, which manages more than 40 hotels, also on Thursday announced the acquisition of the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa in Costa Rica. Tan-Tar-A and Flamingo will become Margaritaville’s 10th and 11th resorts. Margaritaville was founded in 2015. There are 20 additional Margaritaville hotels in development, Driftwood said. Drift-

wood’s sister company, Driftwood Hospitality Management, managed Tan-Tar-A and Flamingo Beach prior to the acquisitions. “It’s a dream come true for us to partner with Margaritaville, as we help to rebrand Tan-Tar-A and Flamingo Beach,” Carlos Rodriguez, Driftwood’s chief executive officer said in a statement. “The Tan-Tar-A acquisition has helped us reach our 2017 growth goal already, just halfway through the year, and Flamingo Beach has been near and dear to my heart for a very long time.”

POPULAR DESTINATION Tan-Tar-A has been a tourist destination for St. Louisans and those from outside the region since the late St. Louis developer Burton Duenke opened the resort on 70 acres in 1960. When it opened, Tan-Tar-A was de-

scribed as a “luxury-styled development, having three-room apartments, most of them equipped with huge stone fireplaces,” according to a 1961 Post-Dispatch article. Marriott acquired the resort in the late 1970s. Tan-Tar-A Estates, a home development adjacent to the resort that’s not associated with the resort sale, is still managed by Duenke’s family. Meghan Duenke, Burton Duenke’s granddaughter, said Tan-Tar-A was named after a boat her grandmother Virginia saw while on vacation in the Bahamas. “She kept a little black book with places she liked, and she wrote it down,” Meghan Duenke said, adding a major renovation of the resort will be beneficial to the Lake of the Ozarks area. “It’s time for a new look and a new era,” she said. “It can’t be the same forever.”

have completed eighth grade. They must also go through a vetting process, which includes taking a test, interview and a prerequisite course. Students can transfer in high school credits they have already earned. In addition to a diploma, program participants earn a career certificate in one of eight areas, including homeland security, commercial driving, retail and food, and hospitality. Sorth said the library chose Career Online High School because it was the only accredited online high school program it could find. It had also heard favorable feedback from other libraries who use the program. The library will begin accepting applications on Oct. 1, and students will start taking classes around January, Sorth said. Kristen Taketa @Kristen_Taketa on Twitter ktaketa@post-dispatch.com

Juxtaposed with Bufett’s laid-back image, the origin of Tan-Tar-A’s name comes from the Blackfoot Indian language and means “one who moves swiftly.” The resort’s property ultimately expanded to encompass more than 420 acres, with two golf courses, a 103-slip marina, multiple restaurants, 91,000 square feet of event space and an indoor water park. On social media Thursday, some bemoaned the addition of the Margaritaville name, saying teachers’ or corporate groups that hold conferences at Tan-Tar-A likely won’t book rooms at a property named after an alcoholic beverage. But at least one group indicated its plans won’t change. The Missouri Association of School Librarians posted on Twitter on Thursday that the group was excited about the changes planned and said the name change won’t impact its upcoming conferences at the resort. “It certainly won’t be a problem for us,” said Jill Hancock, who provides association management services to the librarians organization and other groups. “It’s really exciting to see a number of changes and renovations in the works already, and my understanding is that they’ll still have a very family-friendly atmosphere,” she said. Jimmy Bufett fans in St. Louis are looking forward to the addition of a resort nearby with ties to the celebrity. Brandi Shufeldt, 30, of Arnold, is the social director for the St. Louis Parrot Head Club, a Bufett fan group with more than 200 members. The group, which holds charity events tied to its outings, hasn’t yet held an event at Tan-Tar-A, but that will likely change now, Shufeldt said. “It’ll be a great gathering area and great for weekend events,” she said. “I think it’s great for Lake of the Ozarks and our club.” Lisa Brown • 314-340-8127 @lisabrownstl on Twitter lbrown@post-dispatch.com

Moon dust collected by Neil Armstrong to be auctioned It is valued at between $2 million and $4 million BY VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press

NEW YORK • Moon dust

that Neil Armstrong collected during the first lunar landing was displayed Thursday at a New York auction house — a symbol of America’s glory days in space now valued at $2 million to $4 million. The late astronaut brought the dust and some tiny rocks back to Earth in an ordinarylooking bag. It’s one of 180 lots linked to space travel that Sotheby’s is auctioning of July 20 to mark the 48th anniversary of the pioneer lunar landing on that date in 1969. The moon dust is the first sample of Earth’s satellite ever collected. The bag has had a storied existence, a decadeslong trajectory during which it was misidentified and nearly landed in the trash. About two years ago, it appeared in a seized assets auction staged on behalf of the U.S. Marshals Service. The owner, whose name has not been made public, bought the treasure and sent it to NASA for testing. After a legal tussle, a federal judge granted the owner full rights over the curiosity. Other items on the block are Armstrong’s snapshot of fellow Apollo 11 astronaut “Buzz” Aldrin standing on the moon, with an estimated value of $3,000 to $5,000. A documented flight plan astronauts used to return to Earth is valued at $25,000 to $35,000. In a photo valued at $2,000 to $3,000, astronaut Gene Cernan from Apollo 17 is seen rolling in the lunar rover through a valley on the moon. Capping the sale is a touch of humor: The Snoopy astronaut doll that was the mascot of the Apollo 10 crew, at an estimated pre-sale price of $2,000 to $3,000. Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon. He died in 2012 in Ohio. The first human to venture into outer space was Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who orbited Earth in a spacecraft in April 1961. Gagarin’s description of the planet — translated from Russian — is being offered as part of

his observations on being in space. His in-depth report, translated into English, has an estimated value of $50,000 to $80,000. Calling it “a magnificent picture,” he wrote:

“The Earth had a very distinct and pretty blue halo. This halo could be clearly seen when looking at the horizon. It had a smooth transition from pale blue to blue, dark blue, violet and absolutely black.”

ing to determine whether they are descended from a Mayflower passenger is surging as the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival in the New World approaches in 2020. Now, a partnership announced Thursday between the New England Historic Genealogical Society and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants is making it easier to figure out. The Boston-based genealogical society is digitizing and indexing authenticated Mayflower Pilgrim genealogies and 50 years’ worth of the “Mayflower Quarterly” magazine, and making them available at its research site, americanancestors.org. There were 102 people on the Mayflower when it landed in Massachusetts in 1620. Half died in the first year. Today, there are an estimated 10 million living Americans and as many as 35 million people worldwide descended from that resilient little group, said Lea Filson, governor general of the Plymouth-based General Society of Mayflower Descendants. They include presidents, poets and celebrities. Yet her organization has only about 30,000 members. She’d like to see that grow. “With the 400th anniversary coming up, we’ve seen a huge uptick in membership applications,” Filson said. “But at the same time, people say they have a hard time getting a hold of our records.” The genealogies, called “Silver Books” because of their distinctive covers, have previously been available only for purchase from the Mayflower society or at libraries, said Ryan Woods, the vice president and chief operating oicer of

the genealogical society. They include about 150,000 birth, marriage, death and deed records. The Mayflower society’s records are so accurate and unimpeachable that finding your roots in them automatically qualifies you for membership. The information is valuable to people who think — but don’t have proof — that they are Mayflower descendants, as well as those who already know they are but want to learn more. “The idea is that family history is a very personal way to engage with topics of the past, influences on our culture and the creation of our country,” Woods said. Thanks to several television shows, genealogical research is now America’s second-most popular hobby after gardening, Filson said. And discovering you’re the progeny of a Pilgrim is the gold standard in family research. “It’s a real emotional thing when you discover you’re a Mayflower descendant,” she said. “I’ve seen people break down in tears.” When Filson’s organization decided to digitize its records, it immediately thought of teaming up with the genealogical society. Established in 1845, it is the premier national resource for genealogists and family historians. The digitization process is already underway. Seven of the 31 “Silver Books” are online, and the plan is to finish the process by the end of the year. Then they’ll start working on the “Mayflower Quarterly” editions dating to 1935. Like all records posted at americanancestors.org, browsers will be allowed temporary free access before a paid membership is required. “There are many, many people who could be related, literally, to this story,” Woods said.

Pro-Greitens group launches TV ad blitz BY KURT ERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY • A controversial nonprofit formed to promote Gov. Eric Greitens and his agenda launched a two-weeklong television advertising campaign Thursday, hitting markets across Missouri and Illinois. The group, A New Missouri, is paying nearly $450,000 for the ads, which tout that the Republican newcomer has slashed state spending by nearly $500 million. “When Gov. Eric Greitens took office, politicians addicted to spending tax dollars handed him a budget shortfall of over $500 million. From there, he had two choices. He could either raise taxes on Missouri families or cut spending. Gov. Greitens cut spending instead and refused to raise taxes,” the organization noted in a release Thursday.

Under the Missouri Constitution, the governor alone cannot raise taxes. Rather, the Legislature must vote to place a tax hike on the ballot and then voters get to say “yes” or “no.” It also is not unusual for a governor to withhold spending. His Democratic predecessor, Jay Nixon, slashed millions of dollars in spending the Legislature had approved in order to keep the budget balanced. In making the reductions, Greitens has pared state spending on higher education, social services and tourism. Cuts to Medicaid programs have drawn the ire of the state’s nursing homes, which say he had other options to keep funding levels at prior rates. “These cuts have shocked the residents, families and employees in our facilities. Our residents are middle-class citizens, who worked all their lives, paid taxes and

contributed to their health care. Now, later in life, they have outlived their resources and the last resort they have for the health care they need and deserve is to rely on Medicaid,” said Nikki Strong, executive vice president for the Missouri Health Care Association. Greitens also vetoed a bill aimed at preventing cuts to in-home and nursing home care for 8,000 disabled or elderly Missourians. According to publicly available filings at the Federal Communications Commission first reported by the Kansas City Star, the 30-second spots will air on broadcast stations in the St. Louis area for anywhere from six days to two weeks. In introducing the ad, A New Missouri urges readers to contribute to the 501(c)(4) organization. “If you agree with this message, donate today to help keep it on air to en-

courage Greitens to continue to balance the budget without raising taxes, despite pressure from the liberals,” the group said. The new ads are less confrontational than an earlier campaign by A New Missouri, which targeted Republican state senators during the Legislature’s spring session. As a so-called “social welfare” organization, it does not have to disclose its donors, leading to accusations that Greitens is benefiting from the same “dark money” that helped him win his first race for public oice last year. Greitens, a political newcomer, was in Rhode Island on Thursday for the National Governors Association summer conference. He returns to Missouri on Friday.

Macron says it’s key to keep up dialogue with U.S. TRUMP • FROM A1

doesn’t, that will be OK too.” Macron acknowledged sharp differences on the Paris climate pact but said the two leaders could find other areas of cooperation. “Should that have an impact on the discussions we’re having on all other topics? No, absolutely not,” he said. Trump arrived in the French capital on Thursday for a whirlwind, 36-hour visit to meet with Macron and tackle potential solutions to the crisis in Syria and discuss broader counterterrorism strategies before being feted at Bastille Day celebrations Friday. The president landed in Paris amid questions about emails showing that his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., welcomed the prospect of receiving Russian government support in last year’s presidential campaign between his father and Hillary Clinton. Trump defended his namesake, saying that “most people would have taken that meeting,” a message that contradicted his incoming FBI director’s testimony that Donald Trump Jr. should have instead alerted authorities.

SYRIA, TERRORISM Topics such as resolving the years-long civil war in Syria and countering terrorism gave Trump and Macron areas to cooperate. The two said they also discussed the security situations in Ukraine and Libya. Trump praised a cease-fire in southern Syria that he helped broker last week with Russia and Jordan and said the U.S. was working on a second cease-fire in a “rough part of Syria.” Macron said he discussed with Trump a road map for the country that would help stabilize the situation after the war ends. He has argued for intervention in Syria, saying that President Bashar Assad is a threat to the war-ravaged country and the Islamic State group is a threat to France. France has been plagued in recent years by extremist attacks, and Trump noted that during last year’s Bastille Day celebrations, a 19-ton cargo truck deliberately

plowed into crowds in Nice, killing more than 80 people. While the U.S. has split with the major world powers on the environment, the two leaders tried to patch over those differences. Trump has said the climate deal was unfair to the U.S. but said the country was committed to protecting the environment despite his recent decision to withdraw. Macron, a staunch advocate of research to combat global warming, has beckoned “all responsible citizens,” including American scientists and researchers, to bring their fight against climate change to France. Trump, Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders huddled last week in Hamburg, Germany, during a summit of the world’s leading rich and developing nations. Merkel and Macron met again Thursday in Paris, before Macron’s meeting with Trump. Trump and Merkel were not expected to meet. Merkel said during a joint appearance with Macron that it was important they keep talking with

Trump even where the diferences between them are clear. “We did not paper over these differences, but nevertheless contact, the ability to speak, is of course important,” she said. Trump and Macron spent several hours together Thursday in some of Paris’ most opulent settings, with a visit to the golden-domed Invalides monument followed by meetings at the presidential palace. Trump also marked the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I by visiting U.S. troops. The visit, along with the celebration of French national pride on Bastille Day, was cast by the White House as a commemoration of the U.S.-French military alliance — then and now. The leaders and their wives capped Thursday with a lavish dinner at the Jules Verne restaurant in the Eifel Tower. It put Trump in the awkward position of being feted in a city he has repeatedly disparaged. When he announced his decision on the climate agreement, Trump said he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

And he has frequently said in the past that the city has been ruined by the threat of terrorism, which he ties to immigrants. “Paris isn’t Paris any longer,” he said in February. Asked about those comments, Trump called Paris “one of the great cities, one of the most beautiful cities in the world” and heaped praise on the recently elected Macron, telling reporters, “You have a great leader now, you have a great president.” “You’re going to have a very, very peaceful and beautiful Paris, and I’m coming back,” Trump said, needling Macron, “You better do a good job, please. Otherwise you’re going to make me look very bad.” Macron responded, “You’re always welcome.”

MORE ON TRUMP JR. Trump characterized his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the presidential contest as standard campaign practice and maintained that “nothing happened” as a result of the sit-down in June 2016. “I think from a practical stand-

point most people would’ve taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research,” Trump said. Trump’s support for the encounter stood in contrast to the position of his nominee for FBI director, Christopher Wray, who at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday was asked what candidates should do if they’re told a foreign government wanted to help by ofering damaging information about an opponent. “Any threat or efort to interfere with our elections from any nation-state or any nonstate actor,” Wray said, “is the kind of thing the FBI would want to know.” Trump Jr. himself said in a Fox News interview on Tuesday night that “in retrospect I probably would have done things a little diferently.” Meanwhile, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday that he would call on Trump Jr. to testify as part of investigations into Russian meddling in last year’s election and would subpoena him if necessary. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said he wanted Trump Jr. to testify “pretty soon” — as early as next week.

SESSIONS’ SECURITY Also Thursday, the Justice Department released a heavily redacted page from Attorney General Jef Sessions’ security clearance application in response to a government watchdog group’s lawsuit. The application page asks whether Sessions — a senator before joining the Trump administration — or anyone in his immediate family had contact within the past seven years with a foreign government or its representatives. There’s a “no” box checked, but the rest of the answer is blacked out. The department had already acknowledged that Sessions omitted from his form meetings he had with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador. A department spokesman said the FBI agent who helped with the form said those encounters didn’t have to be included, as routine contacts were part of Sessions’ Senate duties.

McConnell reveals new health bill, works to corral GOP votes HEALTH • FROM A1

“I’d say the only thing more difficult than peace between Israel and the Palestinians is health care,” Trump said. “But I think we’re going to have something that’s really good and that people are going to like.” The reworked bill McConnell presented to fellow Republicans aims to win conservatives’ support by letting insurers sell low-cost, skimpy policies. At the same time, he seeks to placate hesitant moderates by adding billions to combat opioid abuse and help consumers with skyrocketing insurance costs. But it was unclear whether the Republican leader had achieved the delicate balance he needed after an embarrassing setback last month when he abruptly canceled a vote in the face of widespread opposition to a bill he crafted largely in secret. Timothy McBride, a health care economist at Washington University, said the changes moved the Senate bill “in the wrong direction” and would still cause many people to lose insurance. Creating low-cost plans with skimpy coverage would force people with preexisting conditions to pay much higher premiums, a problem that Obamacare was built to address, he said. “Insurance is about risk pooling, trying to get everybody in the same pool,” McBride said, adding that ofering diferent tiers of coverage “may help get some votes, but from a point of view of helping people get insurance, it probably just makes it worse.”

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told reporters she had informed McConnell she would be voting against beginning debate on the bill, citing in part cuts in the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has repeatedly complained that McConnell’s efforts don’t amount to a full-blown repeal of Obamacare, also announced he was a “no.” That means McConnell cannot lose any other Republican senators. With Democrats unanimously opposed in a Senate split 52-48 in favor of the GOP, he needs 50 votes, with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie, to get past a procedural hurdle and begin debate on the bill. The showdown vote is set for next week, though McConnell could cancel again if he’s short of support. He and other GOP leaders are urging senators to at least vote in favor of opening debate, which would open the measure up to amendments. And GOP leaders express optimism that they are getting closer to a version that could pass the Senate. “It’s in the best shape it’s been in so far,” said Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo. “Now that members actually have paper in their hand they can look at what is likely to be very close to the final bill we’ll be voting on and move forward.” McConnell said the 172-page legislation was the senators’ opportunity to make good on years of promises. “This is our chance to bring about changes we’ve been talking about since Obamacare was forced on the American people,” he said. Many Republicans believe the party

could face electoral catastrophe if it alienates GOP voters by failing to deliver after taking control of both chambers of Congress and the White House while vowing to get rid of former President Barack Obama’s signature law. “It could be the biggest political broken promise in many years,” former Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, former president of the Heritage Foundation, said as he passed through the Capitol. Throughout the day McConnell huddled in his office with holdouts, including Dean Heller of Nevada, the most endangered Senate Republican in next year’s midterms; Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia; Rob Portman of Ohio; and John Hoeven of North Dakota. The lawmakers wanted details and numbers on how the bill would impact rural and Medicaid-dependent people in their states. All had opposed McConnell’s earlier bill, but this time around several left their meetings saying they were undecided and needed more time to evaluate the legislation. Like legislation earlier passed by the House after struggles of its own, the Senate bill would get rid of Obamacare’s mandates for individuals to buy insurance and for companies to ofer it, repeal taxes and unwind the Medicaid expansion created by the Affordable Care Act. Analyses by the Congressional Budget Office have found the House bill and the earlier Senate version both would kick more than 20 million people of the insurance rolls over the next decade. The new bill contains language demanded by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, letting

insurers sell plans with minimal coverage, so long as they also sell policies that meet strict coverage requirements set by Obama’s 2010 statute. Moderate Republicans have objected that that would make policies excessively costly for people with serious illnesses because healthy people would flock to the cheaper coverage. The Cruz provision appears in the legislative text in brackets, meaning specific wording is still being composed. That could give McConnell, Cruz and other conservatives time to work out a provision with broader support. The retooled measure retains McConnell’s plan to phase out the extra money 31 states have used to expand Medicaid under Obama’s statute, and to tightly limit the overall program’s future growth. Since its creation in 1965, Medicaid has provided open-ended federal funds to help states pay the program’s costs. The rewritten package would add $70 billion to the $112 billion McConnell originally sought that states could use to help insurers curb the growth of premiums and consumers’ other out-of-pocket costs. It has an added $45 billion for states to combat the misuse of drugs including opioids. That’s a boost over the $2 billion in the initial bill, an addition demanded by Republicans from states in the Midwest and Northeast that have been ravaged by the drugs. To help pay for the added spending, the measure would retain three tax increases Obama’s law imposed on higher-earning people. Blythe Bernhard of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

Mizzou rakes in $152 million in gifts Despite drop in donations, fundraising eforts ahead of expectations for 2020 goal BY ASHLEY JOST St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Leaders seem unfazed by a

drop in fundraising that hit the University of Missouri-Columbia. The university reported Thursday that it raised $152 million during the budget year that ended June 30, down $19 million from the previous year — a university record. Almost one-third of the current year’s fundraising came from the athletics department, which was a record year for new athletic director Jim Sterk. The drop comes a year and a half after student protests centered around issues of race brought the campus national attention. Two top leaders resigned amid the strife during November 2015. The freshman class enrollment has since dropped more

than 30 percent from projections of the incoming class versus the fall of 2015. But with new leadership, a highly anticipated basketball season and big changes in the way the university operates, leaders are hopeful alumni and supporters recognize that this could be the dawn of a new era for the flagship campus. “Having stability at the top will be critical,” said Tom Hiles, Mizzou’s vice chancellor for advancement. He was talking about the still-new University of Missouri System president Mun Choi and the incoming Mizzou chancellor Alexander Cartwright, who starts Aug. 1. Both leaders are involved in building relationships with alumni and others to build support and bring in money for the campus, typical to any university. Within three months after Choi arrived,

he and the governing board tapped Cartwright to come in and lead the Columbia campus. He also announced a massive change in operations, cutting $100 million across all four University of Missouri campuses. The cuts included more than 500 positions being eliminated, the bulk of which were at Mizzou. Hiles and his team point to this past year as a record for bringing in cash donations, as opposed to pledges. According to the department, $121 million of the year’s total is in cash, which is the highest cash flow amount in the last five years. Oicials also tout this year as one of the largest in number of $1 million or larger gifts. He’s also hopeful about several larger gifts that weren’t finalized before the end of the last year, but will help kick of the

2018 budget year as his team continues to push a bigger fundraising campaign. The school reports reaching almost $906 million out of a $1.3 billion goal for the “Our Time to Lead” campaign, which ends June 2020. The campaign, which started in October 2015, focuses on funding scholarships, campus centers and institutes that boost research productivity and campus facilities. “With new leadership across campus, we are committed to making Mizzou even stronger, and private support continues to be essential to our success,” Hiles said in a statement. “We are very pleased that we are on track to exceed our $1.3 billion goal by 2020.” Ashley Jost • 314-340-8169 @ajost on Twitter ajost@post-dispatch.com

Lifeguards are ired or quit over contents of chat BY ASHLEY LISENBY St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Several lifeguards working at Maplewood and Richmond Heights swimming complexes were fired this week over the contents of a casual cellphone group chat, and several co-workers then quit in protest, two of the lifeguards said Thursday. At least six lifeguards were fired Tuesday after supervisors of the Maplewood Family Aquatic Center and The Heights Community Center in Richmond Heights were alerted to the content of the group chat. The centers are managed through the Parks and Recreation Cooperative. The city of Richmond Heights is responsible for staing. City officials were not commenting Thursday on the firings. Former manager Aryanna Carper said she was among six or seven lifeguards who were fired at Maplewood City Hall on Tuesday by Richmond Heights Parks and Recreation Director Teresa Proebsting without prior warning. Carper said the lifeguards weren’t told specifically what was found ofensive in the group messages. “They found something. For me personally, there was no reason why I should’ve been fired,” Carper said. She had been a full-time employee

there for three years. During that time, she said she had never received disciplinary citations. “I was really shocked,” she said of her termination. Carper said about 40 or 50 staf members used the app Group Me to send messages they thought were funny, coordinate work schedules and plan non-workrelated outings. “People would post pictures or videos they thought were funny. I don’t know if someone had a diferent sense of humor,” she said. At least one staf member is believed to have complained about the group chat to pool leaders that the content of messages shared in the group were inappropriate. Carper, 21, called herself mature and said she believes she would have known if she had said something wrong. Most of the people who work at the centers are ages 15 to 20, she said. By Wednesday, a second group of lifeguards were summoned. But many of them decided to resign out of solidarity with those fired. “Yesterday, before they had an opportunity to fire me, I quit,” said Abigail Henning. Henning had worked at the centers for 3½ years. She said she believed no one was “personally targeted in any of the messages” that led to the terminations. “These were some of the hardest-

working guards, and they fired them for non-work-related issues,” she said. A parent of a lifeguard reported that the “lazy river” attraction at the Maplewood center has been closed and events canceled because of reduced staf. Henning said the pool had not been fully staffed until last week. She estimated there were about 30 fewer people than needed to staf the pool. There are about 70 guards needed to ensure people keep to a 40-hour week, she said. Richmond Heights City Manager Pam Hylton released a statement Thursday saying the centers prioritize the safety of their patrons. “We strive every day to provide the

highest quality experience to all who visit our facilities. “With that said, we assure you all will continue to be appropriately staffed to ensure the most safe and fun experience for the visiting public.” Neither Hylton nor Proebsting responded to questions about how many lifeguards were fired and why. Several guards have reportedly requested a meeting with Proebsting since the terminations. A staf meeting is reportedly scheduled Friday at Maplewood City Hall.

CONCERT REVIEW

Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires harmonize at the Peabody BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ Special to the Post-Dispatch

Wednesday night’s show at the Peabody Opera House wasn’t Jason Isbell’s first visit to St. Louis this year, nor even his first to the Peabody. In March, he turned up there to sit in on his wife Amanda Shires’ opening set for John Prine, and both he and Shires performed with Prine as well. Shires returned the favor Wednesday night by joining Isbell’s band, the 400 Unit, for her husband’s rapturous, nearly two-hour headlining set. Turning their shows into family affairs is nothing new for the couple — they do so whenever their schedules and fairly recent parenthood permit. Seeing them together isn’t necessary to appreciate the hard-won, sometimes selfexcoriating truths of Isbell’s songs, but it does heighten the drama of tunes such as “Molotov,” from his just-released album, “The Nashville Sound.” In it, Isbell sings about his promise, made during his drinking days, to burn himself out and “ride the throttle till the wheels came of.” That changed when he met a “brown-eyed girl” — presumably Shires — causing him to break that promise and change his life completely and for the better. Later, with “If We Were Vampires,” Isbell imagined their relationship’s bittersweet end, after 40 years or so, when death takes one of them or the other, but promising love and devotion until then. “Maybe time running out is a gift,” the couple harmonized; “I’ll work hard till the end of my shift.” Seeing the couple face each other onstage and sing such lyrics is both devastating and profound. They’re like George Jones and Tammy Wynette in reverse: The hell-raising and inevitable crackup came first, then the redemption, which seems to have stuck. The whole of it has served to broaden and deepen Isbell’s art.

The show wasn’t merely an exposé of the couple’s relationship, nor a therapy session, of course. Drawing mostly from his three most recent albums, Isbell surveyed country, Americana sounds and old-school Southern rock, turning in muscular, rocking takes on “24 Frames,” “White Man’s World” and “Cumberland Gap,” plus “Decoration Day,” a song he wrote for his former band, the Drive-By Truckers. The 400 Unit — notably guitarist Sadler Vaden and ex-Son Volt keyboardist Derry deBorja, plus Shires, provided Isbell with stellar, razor-sharp backing throughout. Isbell returned to his dramatic backstory with “Cover Me Up,” a song about his moment of clarity from his breakthrough album “Southeastern.” He finished the set with the broad, sweeping chords of “Anxiety” and encored with a cathartic, letter-perfect take on the Allman Brothers Band’s “Whipping Post.” The Mountain Goats, led by singersongwriter (and noted novelist) John Darnielle, opened the show with a brace of high-energy indie-rock tunes — many of them drawn from the band’s most recent album, “Goths” — filled with wry, literate, lyrical turns and semi-obscure references. “Nobody broke D.B. Cooper’s fall,” Darnielle sang in the opening song, “Rain in Soho.” “Andrew Eldritch is Moving Back to Leeds” (which namechecks the lead singer of the Sisters of Mercy) followed. Keeping Google open on your phone while listening to the Mountain Goats’ music isn’t a requirement, but it helps. Unfortunately, the sound mix, which featured too much of Jon Wurster’s powerful drum performance and too little of Darnielle’s voice, did the band no favors. Still, there was enough charm in the set to entice Isbell’s fans not familiar with the Mountain Goats to further investigate their deep catalog.

U.S. health care fraud probe nets 400 Justice Department says scams stole $1.3 billion via false billings, including opioids BY SARI HORWITZ AND RENAE MERLE Washington Post

WASHINGTON • More

than 400 people across the country have been charged with participating in health care fraud scams totaling about $1.3 billion in false billings, including for the prescription and distribution of opioids. In what federal officials Thursday called the “largest ever health care fraud enforcement action” by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, 412 individuals, including 115 doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, were arrested in a nationwide operation that involved more than 1,000 law enforcement agents in at least 30 states. “One American dies of a drug overdose every 11 minutes, and more than 2 million Americans are ensnared in addiction to prescription painkillers,” Attorney General Jef Sessions said at a news conference. “We will continue to find, arrest, prosecute, convict and incarcerate fraudsters and drug dealers wherever they are.” Sessions said the operation began with tips from people in the affected communities and from “very sophisticated computer programs that identify outliers.” The investigation par-

From left, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Attorney General Jef Sessions and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe leave a news conference about opioid addiction Thursday at the Justice Department in Washington.

ticularly focused on medical professionals who were involved in the unlawful distribution of opioids and other prescription narcotics, officials said. The abuse of pharmaceutical opioids is widely blamed for a medical crisis involving tens of thousands of overdoses on heroin and fentanyl. “Last year, an estimated 59,000 people died from a drug overdose … opioids play an enormous role in that total number,” said Chuck Rosenberg, acting administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administra-

tion. “This is an epidemic.” Ap p rox i m a te ly 9 1 Americans die every day of an opioid related overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Among the 412 defendants, 120 were charged w i t h o p i o i d - re l a te d crimes. Six of the doctors were charged with operating a scheme in Michigan to prescribe patients with unnecessary opioids, some of which were then sold on the street. The doctors allegedly billed Medicare for $164 million in false and fraudulent claims, accord-

ing to federal oicials. A clinic in Houston allegedly gave out prescriptions for cash. Officials said one doctor at the clinic provided 12,000 opioid prescriptions for more than 2 million illegal painkiller doses. And a rehab facility for drug addicts in Palm Beach, Fla., that is alleged to have recruited addicts with gift cards, visits to strip clubs and drugs billed the government for more than $58 million in false treatments and tests. “Narcotics oicers have arrested schoolteachers, doctors, nurses and fellow

law enforcement personnel,” said acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. “Many who succumb to the lure of the opioid high are kids. … In some cases, we had addicts packed into standing-room only waiting rooms, waiting for those prescriptions.” McCabe said that some doctors wrote out more prescriptions for controlled substances in one month than entire hospitals were writing. Some of the health care fraud scams have been identified by reporters in the areas where they took place. The Palm Beach Post has covered the issue extensively and recently highlighted the Palm Beach County Sober Home Task Force, which in the past eight months has arrested and charged 28 owners and operators of drug treatment centers and sober homes with buying and selling insured addicts. And the national publication STAT has chronicled “addict brokers” who can earn tens of thousands of dollars by recruiting and arranging transportation and insurance coverage for desperate addicts from the Northeast and Midwest to go to drug rehab centers in Florida. Some of the centers are run by operators with no training or expertise, and they often provide few services to the

addicts, according to the STAT report. “Health care fraud is a reprehensible crime,” said Health and Human Services Inspector General Daniel Levinson. “It not only represents a theft from taxpayers who fund these vital programs, but impacts the millions of Americans who rely on Medicare and Medicaid.” This comes amid a larger debate about how the country should address the thousands of people the government estimates are addicted to opioids. The epidemic has swamped hospitals, even as public health authorities urge doctors to cut back on the prescriptions they offer. The shortage of treatment for people with opiod-use disorder has even complicated efforts in Congress to repeal and replace the Afordable Care Act. States struggling with the issue have objected to a proposed rollback of the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid, which is helping fund treatment for many people, for example. “Last year, an estimated 59,000 Americans died from a drug overdose, many linked to the misuse of prescription drugs. This is, quite simply, an epidemic,” said Chuck Rosenberg, acting administrator of the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Education oicial apologizes anew, now to victims Jackson had attributed 90 percent of campus sexual assault claims to both parties’ being drunk BY LAURIE KELLMAN AND CAROLE FELDMAN associated Press

WASHINGTON • The Ed-

ucation Department’s top civil rights oicial’s “flippant” remarks are raising questions about the government’s commitment to fighting campus sexual violence, even as she issued her second apology in as many days for attributing 90 percent of sexual assault claims to both parties’ being drunk. Candice Jackson, assistant secretary for civil rights, told victims of sexual assault meeting with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Thursday that she was sorry for her remarks. “As much as I appreciate apologies, which are diicult, unfortunately, there’s no way to take it back. It’s out there,” said Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women’s Law Center, who attended the meeting and relayed Jackson’s apology Thursday. “What’s extremely important now is that they do the hard work to counter those sorts of rape myths. They

need to explicitly reject them.” DeVos also met Thursday with people who say they were falsely accused and disciplined and representatives of colleges and universities to talk about the impact of stepped-up eforts by the administration of then-President Barack Obama to enforce the law known as Title IX as it relates to sexual assault. The attorney for a college football player who says he was falsely accused of sexual assault said DeVos saw federal rules on enforcement as unfair and in need of change. Kerry Sutton was in the room with DeVos on Thursday when six people told “gut-wrenching” stories about being falsely accused of sexual violence on campus. She said they stressed “that the system has to be fair.” Sutton represents University of North Carolina football player Allen Artis, who was charged last year with misdemeanor sexual battery and assault on a female. He was suspended from football but has since

been reinstated. He has said the encounter was consensual. DeVos’ “listening sessions” came the day after Jackson was quoted in The New York Times as saying federal rules had resulted in many false accusations. In most investigations, she told the newspaper, there’s “not even an accu-

sation that these accused students overrode the will of a young woman.” “Rather, the accusations — 90 percent of them — fall into the category of, ‘We were both drunk, we broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided that our last sleeping together was not quite right,’” Jack-

son is quoted as saying in an interview. In her apology Wednesday night, Jackson said, “What I said was flippant, and I am sorry.” She sought

to issue reassurances that both she and the department believe “all sexual harassment and sexual assault must be taken seriously.”

Restoring MU’s shine New MU President Mun Y. Choi will be earning his pay.

H

ardest job in Missouri? Probably that of Mun Y. Choi, new president of the University of Missouri. The university’s declining enrollment and race problems got front page treatment from the New York Times on Sunday, resulting in a black eye for the school and the state. The problem is entirely of Missouri’s own making. The state can’t run a university where black students feel unwelcome and then pretend to be surprised when there’s backlash. Mizzou will have a hard time training the workforce the state needs with 9 percent state budget cuts. Then there’s a new Pew Research Center study showing declining support among Republican voters for “elitist” higher education. Choi has his work cut out for him. The university plans a $1 million marketing campaign to respond. That might Mun Y. Choi help, but we hope there are some real solutions on the menu, too. Problems were mounting long before fall 2015, with months of escalating racial tension around high-profile incidents of slurs and vandalism; reports of trouble on Greek row; the release of a study revealing the prevalence of sexual assaults on campus; a lawsuit over conceal-and-carry restrictions; and student criticism about various administrative responses. That all came against a backdrop of years of tighter budgets, a threatened shutdown of the university’s press that had published such renowned black authors as Langston Hughes and complaints about graduate student health insurance benefits and teaching

positions. Stir in the 2014 shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, which drew dozens of Mizzou students to demonstrations then and again in November, after a St. Louis County grand jury decided against indicting the white officer who fatally shot Brown, and the university was a tense place. The tensions boiled over with the campus eruption in November 2015. When assistant communications professor Melissa Click was caught in an on-camera meltdown trying to protect campus protesters and block a student journalist from covering them, she became a convenient scapegoat for political complaints about higher education and Mizzou in particular. Then came pressure from then-state Sen. Kurt Schaefer, AP R-Columbia, on a politically motivated crusade to get MU out of the “abortion business.” His efforts resulted in the loss of access privileges at the university hospital for a Planned Parenthood doctor, and another gut punch for Mizzou. These are just some of the reasons why Choi, hired in November, will earn every bit of the $530,000 annual salary he is getting. There’s also deferred compensation and a housing allowance that will add nearly $80,000 to the package. The university is the state’s educational crown jewel, a place of pride for generations of students. The crown may be a little tarnished, but Missouri’s future requires a fair, affordable and yes, elite, state university.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Greitens shows callous disregard for most vulnerable

Health care solution requires conciliation from both parties

Missouri provides one of the lowest levels of financial support to people who provide services for children in foster care in the entire country. Gov. Eric Greitens, who is making a big show of how much he cares about children and the value of life, imposed a $2.4 million cut to an already meager budget for services for children in foster care. The governor says that he was sent to oice to make tough choices. I wonder if he knows what that means. Foster care providers will be making tough choices — like whether they can continue to provide care and homes for our state’s abused and neglected children with even less financial support from Greitens. Department of Social Services foster care case managers will face tough choices, like which child in a sibling group has to be separated from her sisters and brothers because DSS can’t locate a foster home that can accommodate large sibling groups with reduced financial support. Or was the governor thinking about hard choices like how to distract the voters from his callous disregard for the most vulnerable in our state? What he chose to do by imposing this cut was a classic bully move. Pick on someone who’s in no position to fight back. Make a tough choice by making people who have no wealth and aren’t even old enough to vote be the ones who pay for it. Bradley Harmon • St. Louis

Regarding the Republicans’ push for a revised health care bill: While I disagree with their fanaticism and myopic focus on this issue, it’s unfortunate that many in Congress view it as a concession to compromise with Democrats to pass a bill. The lesson we should be teaching our kids is that this is complicated and emotional legislation and it’s going to require conciliation for both parties to work together. If they don’t see that, they shouldn’t be representing the American people, who do this a hundred times a week in our professional jobs and personal lives to get things done. That kind of autonomy doesn’t work in any part of society or life. Erik Soell • Kirkwood

GOP bill to defund Medicaid is not meant to help states The letter “Medicaid program overtakes state budgets” (July 11) explaining why proposed Medicaid cuts are necessary was misleading. The writer indicated concern with Medicaid paying for 63 percent of nursing home care without mentioning it is for elderly Missourians who have already spent their life savings on medical care, and Social Security is not enough to cover ongoing costs. He justifies the cuts by stating original Medicaid had nothing to do with retirement, but neither does living in a nursing care facility, which, to be honest, was one of the original Medicaid required benefits. The vast number of poor people in Missouri results in the Federal Medical Assistance and Federal Reimbursement Allowance calculations funding over 83 percent of the total Missouri Medicaid expense. This makes Medicaid a good deal for Missouri taxpayers and leaves about $7 billion in the Missouri budget (25 percent of the total budget) available for other services such as education. The Department of Health and Human Services reports in its 2016 financial outlook for Medicaid a projected 10-year increase of 5.7 percent, due to a 15 percent increase in participants. It also says per-enrollee costs decreased in 2016 (6.9 percent), and are expected to further decrease in 2017 (6.3 percent) and 2018 (3.3 percent). That makes it less and less costly per person just when more and more baby boomers may need help. The Republican bill to defund Medicaid gives an enormous tax cut to the most fortunate in our country, and is not an attempt to help the states as suggested. Rather, as we hear from so many governors, it will cause much human and financial harm and should be defeated. Jim Hamilton • Oakville

U.S. should stay out of Palestinian-Israeli disputes The United States should disengage from all negotiations ongoing, and any contemplated for the future, between the Palestinians and Israel. Our past and current involvement in these negotiations has only resulted in bitter Muslim resentment toward our government and all Americans throughout the Middle East. This Muslin bitterness is caused by their fervent conviction that we have not been, and are not, fair and even-handed in our treatment of the two parties in this 65year dispute. The Palestinians and the Arab world are convinced of this American bias because of the demanding influence of the American Jewish lobby. It is impossible to imagine that an American Muslim would ever be considered, or appointed, as special envoy to attempt, for the umpteenth time, a resolution of the dispute. Yet, President Donald Trump has chosen his Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is without any prior experience, to undertake this arduous task. In the meantime the Israelis just snicker and keep building homes and villages on land that was seized in the 1967 war. I do not believe our continued attempts to broker a settlement are in the best interests of the United States. If we were to declare that we were to no longer be involved in the dispute, we would accrue significant advantage and prestige throughout the Arab world and would undoubtedly substantially reduce our exposure to the threat of terrorism. The Israelis are capable of defending themselves, and we would continue to be a supporter of theirs in any future conflict. The American Jewish lobby would oppose such a move, but so be it. Lee R.

Chippewa Street development deserves applause It was heartening to read of the efforts of a group of real developers who are working along Chippewa Street (“Developers working to patch together a Chippewa revival,” July 9). This is the type of development that needs acknowledgment, applause and awards. It stands in stark contrast to the article (June 25) on the devious, selfserving and corrupt Paul McKee and his NorthSide project and the stacks of TIF money he has pocketed. Perhaps the new city administration will be able to see the difference. Thomas A. Doss • University City Read more letters online at STLtoday.com/letters

An administration without conscience he president and his men are incapable of feeling shame about shameful things. MICHAEL GERSON Washington Post

Given what we know about the collusion — and there is no other word for it — between then-candidate Donald Trump’s most senior advisers and what they thought was a Kremlin-tied lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton, the most shocking thing is that no one on the Trump side was shocked. The most offensive thing is that no one took offense. Trump’s son, son-in-law and campaign manager treated the offer of aid by a hostile, foreign power to tilt an election as just another day at the office.“I think many people would have held that meeting,” affirmed the president. It is the banality of this corruption that makes it so appalling. The president and his men are incapable of feeling shame about shameful things. Donald Jr. certainly doesn’t

know what all the fuss is about. Instead of offering a hint of contrition, he offered a complaint that the proffered information was not particularly useful.“I applaud his transparency,” says father of son. But disclosure is not really a virtue if you are admitting highly unethical actions without apology. It is more like the public confession of serious wrongdoing, and the attempted normalization of sliminess. The ultimate explanation for this toxic moral atmosphere is President Trump himself. He did not attend the meeting, but he is fully responsible for creating and marketing an ethos in which victory matters more than character and real men write their own rules. Trumpism is an easygoing belief system that indulges and excuses the stiffing of contractors, the conning of students, the bilking of investors, the exploitation of women and the practices of nepotism and self-dealing. A faith that makes losing a sin will make cheating a sacrament. Republicans have sometimes

employed the excuse that members of the Trump team are new to politics — babes in the woods — who don’t yet understand all the ins and outs. Their innocence, the argument goes, is proved by their guilt. This might apply to minor infractions of campaign finance law. It does not cover egregious acts of wrongdoing. Putting a future president in the debt of a foreign power — and subject, presumably, to blackmail by that power — is the height of sleazy stupidity. It is not a mistake born of greenness; it is evidence of a vacant conscience. The foundation for this approach to campaigning and governing is a belief that politics is an essentially dirty business. Trump seems honestly convinced that the system is “rigged” against him — to the point of defrauding him of millions of votes. If the system is truly manipulated by political enemies, then only suckers are bound by its norms and requirements. Those who denigrate our system of government are providing an excuse for gaming it.

And that is precisely what Donald Trump Jr. was doing — trying to game American democracy. Some believe that the political enterprise is noble but fallen. They have the goal of restoring something lost and loved. Others believe that the politics is essentially low and grubby, and must be conducted by its own ruthless rules. This attitude makes it difficult, apparently, to distinguish between political hardball and subversion. During the Trump campaign and his young, paralyzed presidency, we have heard some conservatives argue,“We’re not electing a pastor-in-chief.” It has been particularly strange to hear religious conservatives claim that the character of leaders doesn’t count. But the character of a president leaves an imprint on everyone around him. A high ethical standard — think Gerald Ford or H.W. Bush — creates a general expectation of probity. A low ethical standard — think Richard Nixon or Donald Trump — has a pervasive influence of its own, inevitably

resulting in scandal. The author C.S. Lewis posited three elements that make up human beings. There is the intellect, residing in the head. There are the passions, residing in the stomach (and slightly lower). And then there are trained, habituated emotions — the “stable sentiments” of character — which Lewis associated with the chest. In the realm of political ethics, voters did not prioritize character in sufficient numbers in 2016, during the party primaries or the general election. Now we are seeing the result.“In a sort of ghastly simplicity,” Lewis said,“we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”

Gov. Eric Greitens speaks to St. Louis city police oicers on Monday.

Ask a pro, not a politician St. Louis has real crime problems. Don’t turn to Greitens for answers. TOD ROBBERSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

With cheerleaders like Gov. Eric Greitens rooting for our city’s success, who needs enemies? The governor’s assessment of St. Louis as the “most dangerous city in the United States of America” seems designed not to help tackle this city’s crime problems as much as to help get Eric Greitens as much TV time as possible. The addition of 20 to 30 state troopers to patrol Interstates 55 and 70 probably won’t put a big dent in the city’s outrageous violent crime statistics. But, to Greitens’ credit, it could move the needle just a little by serving notice to flagrant violators. Speeders, tailgaters, rude jerks and motorcycle demons might start to think twice about the lives they put in danger on our highways. And maybe, just maybe, the criminal gangs who keep using I-55 as their personal shooting gallery will start looking over their shoulders before launching another hit job. Respect for the law is clearly not this city’s strong suit, and I suspect police morale is sagging because officers feel under siege and constantly under a microscope with a racial lens. Public mistrust has grown because local governments for too long used their police as revenue generators rather than law enforcers. Somewhere, there’s got to be a sweet spot between the human side of policing — where officers cultivate community trust by walking the streets, talking and helping people — and building greater respect for the law. Writing citations for every nitpicky broken turn indicator will do nothing to help locate that sweet spot. Nor will the denigration of the city by a politician whose every pronouncement and public appearance seems carefully managed to improve his chances of success in seeking higher office. Greitens has never been a law

enforcement professional and probably doesn’t know the first thing about addressing the complex issues driving this city’s crime problem. When his wife was robbed last December, Greitens’ first reaction was to suggest that he would’ve busted some heads had he caught the culprits before the cops did. The emotion was understandable, but it wasn’t the right answer. He also talked about meeting with the culprits’ mothers to improve parenting and find ways to produc-

“I saw that community policing worked.” - Retired Dallas Police Chief David Brown

tively harness young people’s energies. That would have been a much better approach. St. Louis is at a critical policing juncture as the city tries to fill the vacancy left by Police Chief Sam Dotson’s resignation. The next chief should be the face of marked change. A familiar face from inside the ranks will bring continuity. An outsider would bring a fresh new approach. Either way, don’t look to Greitens for help. This city needs advice from professionals who have been through the wringer. A new book by retired Dallas Police Chief David Brown offers lots of excellent advice from someone who has had more than his share of challenges.Brown’s book,“Called to Rise,” should be required reading for those looking to hire Dotson’s replacement. Some key points Brown offers: • Running a police force isn’t a popularity contest. Police chiefs make lots of controversial decisions that rile officers unions, local politicians and members of the

public. Brown says that as he rose to become second-in-command in Dallas, he knew,“from day one, that I wasn’t necessarily going to be all that well liked after I began holding officers to account. That was fine.” • Hire someone with integrity who isn’t just looking for a big salary boost. Brown told his wife in 2010 that he would not compromise ethics for the sake of a paycheck.“If I was offered the job and was later asked to do something unethical, immoral or even illegal, I wanted to know I could freely and fearlessly walk away.” • Hold lower-ranking commanders accountable for crime statistics in their jurisdictions. If crime rates exceed norms, make them come up with a plan to address it. If the commander is out of his depth, then appoint someone who can handle the task. The chief must be willing to make hard decisions, even if it means canning loyal subordinates. • Make community policing the standard.“I saw that community policing worked,” Brown writes, “The statistics had demonstrated that. And in large measure, it worked because it involved engaging the citizens — in other words, getting them to partner with us for the sake of their protection.” That last item is key. The St. Louis Police Department now requires officers to log time outside of their patrol cars on every shift, doing exactly what Brown recommends. “This wasn’t some feel-good, mushy, hocus-pocus variety of police work,” Brown writes of the results he got from such a requirement.“This was law enforcement at its finest.” It’s easy to dehumanize someone you don’t know and never talk to. That’s how an us-versus-them mentality takes root. Sometimes, bridges can be built by doing the simplest things. Brown recommends coffee with cops, basketball with cops, guitar with cops. Greitens’“let’s go get ’em” approach might make for good sound bites. But it’s a lousy approach to crime fighting. trobberson@post-dispatch.com Twitter: @trobberson 314-340-8382

Let the record reflect that on July 12, 2017, at a few minutes after 10 a.m. Eastern daylight time, the lights went out on the Republican Party. Speaker Paul D. Ryan and fellow House Republican leaders had just finished their caucus meeting and were beginning a news conference. The House Republican Conference chair, Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), was announcing new legislation to combat human trafficking.“We made a promise — “ she said. And then the room went dark. “Whoops! Did I step on it?” she asked, looking at her feet for an electrical cord. Presently, the lighting rekindled.“Now, if we could pay the light bills,” she resumed. The metaphor alert level has just been raised to red. The latest revelation in the Putin palooza — that Donald Trump Jr., along with Jared Kushner and Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, eagerly met last year with a person promising dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government — brings the sprawling scandal to a new level. Surely Republican leaders will move with dispatch to disavow Team Trump’s behavior? But each time President Trump hits a new low — a racist outburst, a vulgar tweet, shabby treatment of women — commentators invariably state that this one will be the tipping point, the time when Republicans bail on the man who is undermining their party, and conservatism, and American values. Each time, such expectations meet the same fate: Wrong! And this time, sure enough, the Silence of the Republicans has been profound. On the House’s first morning back from the July 4 recess, five GOP leaders took turns making statements before the microphones, and there wasn’t a single mention of Trump, or of the Russian monster devouring their legislative agenda. Ryan (Wis.) waited to be asked the question, by CNN’s Deirdre Walsh, and provided a prepared non-answer. Ryan, omitting mention of Trump Jr.’s Russia meeting, said he would leave it to the “professionals” investigating the matter to “do their jobs.” But Ryan is a professional — he’s the most senior Republican in Congress — and he isn’t doing his job. At least he isn’t if his job is to protect his party (hurt by association with Trump), his policy agenda (bottled up because of Trump’s troubles) or the institutions of the government he represents.

No doubt Republican leaders and backbenchers alike are afraid — not of Trump but of the 25 percent or so of Americans who support Trump strongly and who also happen to be many of the people who dominate Republican primaries and show up to vote in midterm elections. By the time these voters peel away from Trump, it may be too late to rescue the party, or the country. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was no braver.On Tuesday,McConnell (R-Ky.) was pressed four times about his confidence in Trump and his thoughts on Trump Jr. Four times, he responded with a variation of the same answer: “What I have a lot of confidence in is the Intelligence Committee handling this whole investigation.” In the Senate, only a few Republicans have criticized Trump, among them Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), who observed to the Weekly Standard that “another shoe drops from the centipede every few days.” In the House, there have been even fewer (although Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York labeled Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian “a big no-no”). Republicans abandoning Trump tend to be those who don’t answer to voters. Congressman-cum-MSNBC host Joe Scarborough told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he was quitting the GOP over officials’ refusal to disown Trump. “What have you heard from Republican leaders today?” Scarborough asked.“Nothing. There’s always silence.” Alas, Scarborough didn’t object to Trump when it could have done the most good, in the early months of the campaign. His show,“Morning Joe,” boosted Trump’s candidacy with chummy coverage and free airtime in the form of friendly call-in interviews. My colleague Erik Wemple wrote at the time that the show veered from “journalism into the friendly confines of a morning social club.” After Trump won the New Hampshire primary, the candidate thanked Scarborough and his colleagues, calling them “supporters,” then “believers.” Democratic leaders remarked Wednesday on the silent majority. If the situation were reversed, Rep. Linda T. Sánchez (Calif.) said,“they’d be screaming to the rafters about the need for prosecutions.” “Firing squads,” added Rep. Joseph Crowley, the House Democratic Caucus chairman from New York.“All we’re hearing right now is crickets.” Crickets — and a centipede that keeps dropping shoes.

Trump’s budget wouldn’t eliminate deicit, CBO says Growth reportedly wouldn’t hit estimates BY DAMIAN PALETTA AND MAX EHRENFREUND Washington Post

WASHINGTON • The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s first budget plan would not eliminate the deficit over 10 years nor grow the economy as much as the White House projects, casting doubt on the administration’s controversial economic assumptions that were supposed to bolster key parts of Trump’s agenda over the next year. The CBO projected that the spending cuts for anti-poverty programs, housing, environmental protection, and a number of other initiatives would still not be enough to eliminate the deficit by 2027. But in that year, the deficit would be $720 billion under the White House’s budget, the CBO said. The White House asserted the government would actually have a budget surplus in 2027 if its policies were enacted, bringing in more money through revenue than it spent. That’s a more than $700 billion gap in just one year between the CBO and White House. This contrasts sharply with the White House’s internal estimates, which argued that cutting taxes would create an economic boom that would solve many of the country’s budget problems. The White House also estimated that its budget changes would lead the economy to grow by 3 percent per year. The CBO found, however, that economic growth would average only 1.9 percent per year under the White House’s plan. The assessment raises new questions about whether Republicans will be able to build a coalition of conservative and

centrist lawmakers who can agree on a single budget proposal. The CBO’s new projections came with a significant caveat, saying the lack of detail the White House has provided about its plans — primarily its plan to overhaul the tax code — made it virtually impossible for the agency to determine what the economic impact of these ideas would be. The White House has put out only a onepage blueprint for overhauling the tax code, offering few details beyond saying that the changes would add trillions of dollars in new revenue to the budget because there would be so much future economic growth. “The President’s proposals would affect the economy in a variety of ways,” the CBO wrote in its assessment. “However, because the details on many of the proposed policies are not available at this time, CBO cannot provide an analysis of all their macroeconomic efects or of the budgetary feedback that would result from those efects.” And there were cases where the CBO simply rejected the White House’s budget cutting assumptions. For example, the White House said that “reducing improper payments governmentwide” would save $139 billion over 10 years, something they believe would help them eventually eliminate the deficit. But the CBO said the White House simply wouldn’t provide enough details as to where the White House would find such improper payments to eliminate, and it discounted any savings from this endeavor. Still, the CBO said the White House’s plan would essentially cut government spending by $4.2 trillion over 10 years compared with current law.

Biggest Social Security increase in years on way Average recipient to get $28 more each month starting in January BY STEPHEN OHLEMACHER associated Press

WASHINGTON • Millions of

Americans who rely on Social Security can expect to receive their biggest payment increase in years this January, according to projections released Thursday by the trustees who oversee the program. But the increase is projected to be just 2.2 percent, or about $28 a month for the average recipient. Social Security recipients have gone years with tiny increases in benefits. This year they received an increase of 0.3 percent, after getting nothing last year. More than 61 million retirees, disabled workers, spouses and surviving children receive Social Security benefits. The average monthly payment is $1,253. The trustees released the projection, along with their annual warning about the long-term financial problems of Social Se-

curity and Medicare, the federal government’s two bedrock retirement programs. Medicare provides health insurance to about 58 million people, most of whom are at least 65 years old. Unless Congress acts, the trust funds that support Social Security are estimated to run dry in 2034, the same year as last year’s projection. Medicare’s trust fund for inpatient care is projected to be depleted in 2029, a year later than last year’s forecast. If Congress allows either fund to be depleted, millions of Americans living on fixed incomes would face steep cuts in benefits. Neither Social Security nor Medicare faces an immediate crisis. But the trustees warn that the longer Congress waits to address the program’s problems, the harder it will be to sustain Social Security and Medicare without significant cuts in benefits, big tax increases or both. “Lawmakers should address

these financial challenges as soon as possible,” the trustees wrote in their report. “Taking action sooner rather than later will permit consideration of a broader range of solutions and provide more time to phase in changes so that the public has adequate time to prepare.” Republicans in Washington have long clamored to address the long-term financial problems of Social Security and Medicare, the largest benefit programs run by the federal government. But don’t expect them to do much about it. President Donald Trump has promised not to cut Social Security or Medicare, though his budget proposal for next year would reduce Social Security’s disability benefits by nearly $70 billion over the next decade. The savings would come from encouraging, and in some cases requiring, people receiving the benefits to re-enter the workforce.

Proits cloud ‘Pharma Bro’ fraud trial ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK • The jury at the securities fraud trial of Martin “Pharma Bro” Shkreli has heard investors accuse the quirky former biotech CEO of repeatedly giving them the runaround when they tried to pull their money out of his failing health care hedge fund. But the government witnesses have made a concession that the defense hopes plays in its favor: In the end, they made a killing. Whether jurors at the trial that began June 26 in fed-

eral court in Brooklyn will see Shkreli’s clients as victims of a crime is central to a case that has featured odd subplots, including a self-serving rant by the defendant to reporters and email evidence by a mentor about wanting to touch his “soft skin.” Testimony resumed Thursday with the government still in the middle of its case. The lack of clear-cut financial harm separates the alleged fraud from others such as Bernard Madoff’s notorious Ponzi scheme, which wiped out the nest eggs of ordinary inves-

tors. Prosecutors have argued it doesn’t matter because Shkreli still broke the law by blowing investors’ funds with bad stock picks and then lying to them for months — or even years — while he cooked up a way to get out of it. Shkreli, 34, was arrested in 2015 after he already had gained notoriety by using his Turing Pharmaceuticals company to raise the price of a life-saving medication by 5,000 percent and for his nonstop posturing and trolling on social media, a compulsion that spawned the “Pharma Bro” nickname.

Imprisoned Chinese Nobel laureate, dissident dies at 61 He was a champion of democracy, free expression and constitutionalism BY JONATHAN KAIMAN Los angeles Times

BEIJING • Liu Xiaobo, the famed

Chinese dissident who won the Nobel Peace Prize while jailed for his pro-democracy writings, has died in a hospital in northeastern China at the age of 61. The Chinese judicial bureau said Mr. Liu died Thursday (July 13, 2017) of multiple organ failure. Mr. Liu had terminal liver cancer and had been granted parole in June after his diagnosis but remained under virtual house arrest. A prominent champion of democracy, free expression and constitutionalism since the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre,

Mr. Liu had been jailed four times and — when freed last month — was eight years into an 11-year sentence for “inciting subversion of state power.” When Mr. Liu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010, the committee saluted his “long and nonviolent struggle for fundamental human rights in China.” World leaders praised Liu as a freedom fighter and towering symbol of human rights. In Hong Kong, pro-democracy activists gathered outside the Chinese central government offices to mourn the death of the country’s most prominent political prisoner. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on China to release Mr.

Mr. Liu’s medal and diploma were placed on an empty chair. It was the first time a Nobel Peace Prize was awarded under such circumstances since 1936, when Nazi Germany barred German journalist Carl von Ossietzky from traveling to Oslo to claim the prize.

Senator blasts, proits by Mexican labor Indiana Democrat ripped Carrier for outsourcing, but his family’s business does too BY BRIAN SLODYSKO Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS • An Indiana senator railed against Carrier Corp. for moving manufacturing jobs to Mexico last year, even as he profited from a family business that relies on Mexican labor to produce dye for ink pads, according to records reviewed by The Associated Press. Joe Donnelly, considered one of the nation’s most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election next year, has long blasted free-trade policies for killing American jobs. He accused Carrier, an air conditioner and furnace maker, of exploiting $3-an-hour workers when it announced plans to wind down operations in Indiana and move to Mexico. However, an arts and crafts business Donnelly’s family has

Man killed 4 men, burned bodies at farm, source says Pennsylvanian reportedly sold marijuana, shot buyers ASSOCIATED PRESS

DOYLESTOWN, PA. • A

drug dealer has confessed to killing four young men separately after selling them marijuana and then burning their bodies at his family’s farm, a person with firsthand knowledge of his confession said Thursday. The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said a co-conspirator was involved in the shooting deaths of three of the men, who had been reported missing. The details were provided after one of Cosmo DiNardo’s attorneys said Thursday that DiNardo had confessed to murdering the missing men and had told investigators where their bodies were. DiNardo, 20, agreed to plead guilty to four firstdegree murder counts, attorney Paul Lang said outside court. The person with firsthand knowledge of DiNardo’s confession said the men were shot in the head or the back after DiNardo felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions. DiNardo sold quarter-pound quantities of marijuana for several thousand dollars and sold handguns to area residents, the person said. “Every death was related to a purported drug transaction, and at the end of each one there’s a killing,” the person said. DiNardo said one victim was killed on July 5 and the three others on July 7, the person said. The remains of the last three killed were reported discovered Wednesday by investigators, and DiNardo agreed

to tell investigators the location of the first victim’s body, the person said. Authorities had charged DiNardo earlier this year with having a gun despite an involuntary mental health commitment. In seeking $5 million bail on a stolen-car charge this week, prosecutors said he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He also suffered a head injury in an ATV accident a year ago. In exchange for DiNardo’s cooperation, Lang said, prosecutors were taking the death penalty off the table. There was no immediate comment from prosecutors, but they

retweeted news reports of DiNardo’s confession Thursday and planned a briefing Friday. The mystery of the four men’s disappearances transfixed the Philadelphia area over the past week, taking a grisly turn when remains were discovered in a 12½-foot-deep grave on the farm. But what sort of evil befell them, and why, had remained shrouded in secrecy. The four men, all residents of Bucks County, disappeared last week. At least three knew each other. The remains of only one, Dean Finocchiaro, 19, have been identified. The other missing men are Mark Sturgis, 22, and Thomas Meo, 21, who worked together in construction, and Jimi Taro Patrick, 19, a student at Loyola University in Baltimore. Patrick and DiNardo had attended the same Catholic high school. It was the discovery of Meo’s car on a DiNardo family property a half-mile from the farm that led to DiNardo’s rearrest. DiNardo, whose parents own the Solebury farm, remained in custody on $5 million cash bail, accused so far only of a gun possession charge and trying to sell one of the victims’ cars.

May, Donnelly reported owning as much as $50,000 in company stock and earning between $15,001 and $50,000 in dividends on it in 2016 alone. Alejandro Ruelas-Gossi, a Latin American trade expert, said Donnelly’s stake in the company amounts to “hypocrisy” in light of his outspoken campaign rhetoric against the North American Free Trade Agreement and similar deals. “What you are creating is poverty, because the jobs they are creating are very poor jobs. You have very poor salaries. You have poor quality of life. It’s not good for America, and it’s not good for Mexico,” said RuelasGossi, a critic of these types of policies who has taught at the University of Miami School of Business and has written about Latin trade issues for Harvard Business Review.

NAACP seeks removal of Confederate statue in Tennessee • A Tennessee chapter of the NAACP is urging oicials to remove a statue of a Confederate general from in front of a county courthouse, echoing similar eforts throughout the South. Elenora Woods, president of the NAACP’s Chattanooga chapter, said Wednesday that the group will write letters to local leaders asking for the statue of Alexander P.

Gaza struggles to supply electricity • The electricity supply to Gaza’s 2 million residents has dropped to unprecedented lows, with blackouts lasting for more than 24 hours, the territory’s power distribution company said Thursday, prompting fears of a humanitarian and environmental crisis. Estonian leader trusts Trump on NATO • President Donald Trump has erased doubts about his commitment to NATO and is keeping his predecessors’ promises to protect the U.S.’s allies in Europe, according to Estonia’s prime minister.

Trump’s backing for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s mutualdefense pledge is “clear” and “not worth debating anymore,” Juri Ratas, 39, said in an interview.

U.N. backs funds for Haiti cholera relief • The U.N. General Assembly has adopted a resolution backing the U.N. chief’s appeal to member states to transfer $40.5 million in funds from Haiti’s peacekeeping mission to help victims of a cholera outbreak that has hit more than 800,000 people. The outbreak has killed more than 9,000. In Yemen, cholera has infected more than 300,000 people and caused more than 1,700 deaths in the last few months, propelling the war-ravaged nation to the brink of catastrophe, health and humanitarian oicials say. Trading rises between China, N.

The latest oicial trade numbers from Beijing suggest that China is not using its economic leverage over its deiant neighbor. From news services

ural History Museum in London suspended a gigantic skeleton of a blue whale in its main entrance Thursday, drawing attention to vanishing species in an environment under strain. Scientists named the 82foot whale Hope, recognizing the role of science in safeguarding the environment. “It is our hope for the future that we can use good science and good evidence to make the right kind of decisions about these big environmental issues,” said Michael Dixon, the museum’s director. The whale replaced the much-loved Dippy, a dinosaur cast in plaster that graced the entryway for decades. Although the replica of a diplodocus at-

Fed aims low — by choice Balance sheet shrinking will begin; modest impact is expected DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It was a big deal when the Federal Reserve bought trillions of dollars in bonds to boost the economy. Now that the Fed is about

to reverse the process, we’re told it will be about as exciting as watching paint dry. Why the difference? For one thing, we’re not in a financial crisis, and the Fed plans to subtract those trillions more gradually than it added them. The central bank spelled out last month how and why it plans to reverse the so-called quantita-

tive easing process that started in 2008 and ended in 2014. It didn’t say when, exactly, although the goal is to begin the shrinkage sometime this year. The Fed had about $1 trillion in assets before its buying spree. The balance sheet now stands at $4.5 trillion, and Scott Colbert, See NICKLAUS • Page B5

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, shown Wednesday on Capitol Hill, is expected to begin a gradual shrinking of the Fed this year to reverse a bond purchase that aimed to boost the economy. AP

URBAN ISLAND OASIS PHOTOS BY CHRIS LEE • clee@post-dispatch.com

Crank Tools co-owner Nick Akerberg repairs an M998 Humvee for a client Tuesday in the Crank Tools building.

The Crank Tools building south of Highway 40 has hosted the iconic Anheuser-Busch eagle sign on its rooftop since 1962.

The unique selling point of the Crank Tools Juice Bar power supply is its versatility: It can charge a phone, jump a car and power a laptop.

Once abandoned, a forgotten building is given new entrepreneurial life throw a wild party in is his business headquarters.

U.S. STEEL IMPORTS Year-over-year percent change

GRANITE CITY • The blast furnaces and slab

casters at United States Steel Corp.’s Granite City Works have been idle for 18 months, and laid-of workers here are pinning their hopes on President Donald Trump imposing broad new restrictions on imported steel. Yet just across the Mississippi River, some manufacturers worry that new tariffs and curbs Trump is weighing under a Section 232 national security review will raise their costs and make it harder to compete with foreign rivals. The inherent conflict between suppliers and buyers is at the heart of a debate inside the administration that lobbyists and lawmakers say could delay or weaken any protections recommended by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The review’s findings, originally expected by the end of June, could be unveiled in the coming weeks. See STEEL • Page B5

BUSINESS DIGEST Walmart gears up for back-toschool season • Walmart is pushing convenience for the back-to-school shopping season as it tries to better compete with Amazon. The world’s largest retailer said Wednesday it is making hundreds of school staples such as notebooks and pens available through its online grocery service that ofers curbside pickup at the store. It’s also doubling the number of key back-to-school items available for same-day store pickup. And it’s borrowing a strategy it used for the holidays by having stafers help customers with checkout. Walmart has also integrated TeacherLists into a section of its website so customers can check and shop from classroom school supplies lists. Nearly 500,000 lists are available now, with that number expected to double by the end of August. FanDuel, DraftKings scrap troubled merger • Daily fantasy sports companies FanDuel and DraftKings on Thursday scrapped a plan to merge following a legal challenge by antitrust regulators. The Federal Trade Commission said in June that it would seek to stop the deal because the combined company would control more than 90 percent of the U.S. market for paid daily fantasy sports contests. St. Elizabeth’s reduces workforce • St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Belleville said it cut 21 management and support staf positions in late June. The cuts did not include any nurses. The hospital said the reductions in staf were “necessary to ensure their ability to invest in the people, skills, equipment and new technology needed” to continue the mission of the hospital.

St. Elizabeth’s is gearing up to open a new hospital in nearby O’Fallon, Ill., later this year. U.S. mortgage rates rise again • Long-term U.S. mortgage rates rose this week for the second straight week. The benchmark 30-year rate surpassed the 4 percent level for the irst time since May. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30-year, ixed-rate mortgages increased to an average 4.03 percent from 3.96 percent last week. The rate on 15-year, ixedrate home loans, popular with homeowners reinancing their mortgages, rose to 3.29 percent last week from 3.22 percent. Peak Resorts reports jump in 4Q proit • Ski operator Peak Resorts’ fourth quarter proit rose on higher lift and tubing revenue. Wildwood-based Peak Resorts reported an $8.9 million proit for the quarter that ended April 30, or 52 cents a share, up from $7 million, or 50 cents, a year earlier. For the full year, Peak Resorts reported a $1.2 million proit, or 3 cents a share, compared to a $3.2 million loss, or 23 cents a year, in iscal 2016. Peak Resorts owns or operates 14 ski resorts. The company announced plans last month to add a “zip line tour” at its Hidden Valley ski area in Wildwood and the company said the new attraction is slated to open next spring. Commerce Bancshares’ 2Q proit increases • Commerce Bancshares on Thursday said its second quarter proit rose, boosted by an increase in fee income from bank card, trust and deposit fees. The parent company of Commerce Bank reported a $79 million proit for the quarter that ended June 30, or 75 cents a

share, up from $69.9 million, or 68 cents a share, in the year-earlier period, beating estimates. Analysts expected 70 cents a share in the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The bank’s assets as of June 30 totaled $25.1 billion, total loans were $13.6 billion and total deposits were $20.8 billion. Commerce, based in Clayton and Kansas City, has branches in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado. Wholesale prices post modest increase in June • Inlation at the wholesale level remained muted in June. The Labor Department says its producer price index, which measures prices before they reach consumers, rose 0.1 percent last month after being lat in May. The index was up 2 percent in June from a year earlier. Most of the increase came from rising prices for services, including a 4 percent jump in the cost of investment services. Excluding volatile food and energy prices, wholesale inlation was up 0.1 percent last month from May and 1.9 percent from a year earlier. U.S. weekly requests for jobless aid fall to 247,000 • Fewer Americans applied for jobless aid last week, as the number of people seeking beneits has stayed near historic lows pointing to a robust job market. The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly unemployment applications fell by 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted 247,000. The less volatile four-week average rose by 2,250 to 245,750.

Banks, tech lead U.S. stocks to modest gains and a new Dow record ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK • Banks and technology companies led U.S. stocks to modest gains Thursday, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average to its second record close in two days. Big retail chains and other consumer-focused stocks were among the gainers. Energy companies rose as the price of crude oil increased. Phone companies and utilities trailed the market. “We’re continuing to hit record highs,” said Erik Davidson, chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. “It is a resilient market, impervious to whatever comes out of Washington.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index gained 4.58 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,447.83. The Dow rose 20.95 points, or 0.1 percent, to 21,553.09. The Nasdaq composite added 13.27 points, or 0.2 percent, to 6,274.44. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks inched up 1.34 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,425.66. The major indexes are all on pace to end the week with gains. Trading was mostly subdued for much of the day as investors weighed new economic data on applications for unemployment benefits and prices at the wholesale level. Overall, investors were focused on the coming wave of

corporate earnings. “Markets are really biding their time until we get into tomorrow’s more robust earnings releases,” said Eric Wiegand, senior portfolio manager for Private Wealth Management at U.S. Bank. Banks and other financial stocks posted the largest gains. T. Rowe Price Group added $3.61, or 4.8 percent, to $79.19. Goldman Sachs Group rose $3.01, or 1.3 percent, to $230.40. Morgan Stanley picked up 56 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $45.52. The gains among financial companies came as investors looked ahead to Friday, when several big banks, including Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, release their second-quarter results. “Banks certainly operate a bit in their own orbit, but at the same time, financials globally are a proxy for the overall economy. Investors are definitely looking to see how those come out,” Davidson said. Traders will be focused on companies’ latest quarterly earnings for the next few weeks. The market expects earnings per share growth of about 7 percent from companies in the S&P 500. Delta Air Lines released its earnings Thursday. Its shares slid 1.8 percent after the company reported a smaller profit and less revenue than analysts expected. The stock shed 98 cents to $54.50.

Building attracted entrepreneur when he was a teen CRANK • FROM B1

The building now rests in the elbow of the Highway 40 eastbound exit ramp for Grand, but it’s no longer accessible from Grand or Market. You can only approach the building from its rear entrance of Bernard Street. The building is now most notable as the perch of the giant neon Anheuser-Busch eagle advertisement and Budweiser sign, an iconic St. Louis fixture since 1962. Mounting the sign, which originally was displayed on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, appears to have been the last act of the Missouri Jewelite Sign Co. before leaving the building, which has been vacant for decades. Akerberg ended up partying with a couple of hundred teenagers at another abandoned warehouse on Washington Avenue in 1996, but he remained captivated by the strange structure encircled by a highway exit ramp. After earning an economics degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and spending more than 10 years working in Las Vegas, he moved back to St. Louis with his terminally ill wife, Emily, also a St. Louis native, to seek treatment locally. Akerberg started working with his dad, Jan, developing tools and gadgets overseas for interested parties. But he hoped to design his own tools and his own company. After his wife’s death, he needed a reset. With the reminder that life is short and should be lived to the fullest, Akerberg pursued the new owner of that Market Street warehouse that had bewitched him as a teenager. “I couldn’t believe no one was doing anything with that building,” he said. “It was just a billboard. There was graffiti and maybe 50 or so people squatting in the building, but it’s like this great urban island.” All of the access issues that made it untenable for most businesses, and ripe for illicit activity, intrigued Akerberg. Two years ago, he convinced the owners to let him launch what could be called a business laboratory there.

Cornell said the May launch of a brand called Cloud Island, which offers nursery decor, has been a success.

Serendipity spurs Summersalt swimsuit shipping RETAIL • FROM B1

co-founded a swimwear brand, Summersalt, with the backing of an investor group and launched it May 23. Coulter says her company had to hit the reset button to figure out how to appeal to customers spending more and more time online. Summersalt, at gosummersalt. com, isn’t just a new brand; Coulter says it had a new attitude. She founded her company with “TrueMeasure” technology that included 3-D digital body scanning and made-to-measure swimsuits delivered in four to six weeks. Meanwhile, Summersalt items can be purchased online and shipped the next day. Coulter has long since closed her body imaging booths, but her ready-to-wear Lori Coulter brand remains online. The designer won’t commit to ending her namesake brand, but she says that she’s not putting much energy behind it these days. The styles are more conservative, and she said the customer for them skews a bit older. Currently, all but one item on her loricoulter.com e-commerce page has been deeply discounted.

The site also handles her private label business and custom uniforms that have been lucrative for the brand. The new Summersalt line has more of an athleisure influence that’s sporty and playful to appeal to adventure seekers, she said. So far, Coulter said sales have been good (“in the thousands” was as detailed as she’d get in discussing the line’s $95 swimsuits). She’s waiting for more stock to replenish sold-out items from the New York manufacturer producing her line. As luck would have it, just as she was preparing to launch the brand, one of the nation’s biggest e-commerce distribution centers opened a warehouse in St. Louis. The Quiet Logistics facility in Hazelwood will be handing the shipping of merchandise. Coulter said that the timing couldn’t be more perfect. The distribution center opened a little over a month ago, around the time she launched the new line. The company is headquartered at the T-Rex building downtown, with nine employees including Coulter and Chamberlin.

APPETITE FOR SUGARFIRE BARBECUE GROWS After announcing a recent eastward expansion to Indianapolis, Sugarfire Smoke House will soon be opening in O’Fallon, Ill. The barbecue restaurant is a three-time member of the Post-Dispatch food critic Ian Froeb’s STL 100 list. There are five locations in Missouri. The O’Fallon City Council will vote on final approval of the Green Mount Development Group proposal to include the eatery at its July 17 meeting. According to the agenda, the 3,800-square-foot restaurant will be constructed at 1405 Green Mount Road. Sugarfire, founded by Master Chef Mike Johnson and partner Christina Fitzgerald, opened in Olivette in 2012. The operation has since expanded to downtown St. Louis, St. Charles, Valley Park, Washington, Mo., and O’Fallon, Mo. Another outlet is planned for Farmington, Mo. Debra D.

J.C. Penney to add toy departments in all stores REUTERS

Department store operator J.C. Penney Co. Inc. said it was opening toy shops in all its stores and was planning to have a bigger assortment of toys available in time for the holiday season, as it seeks new avenues of growth amid weak sales. The retailer also said on Thursday it had doubled its online assortment of toys over the last year. Penney — which has more than 1,000 stores — will sell toys from

such brands as Mattel’s Fisher Price, Hasbro and Playmobil, with some stores also featuring a play area. The retailer has said it aims to cut its dependence on apparel, which made up more than half its sales last year, as more shoppers buy online and from fast-fashion rivals such as Forever 21. Penney reported a third straight fall in quarterly sales in May and said it expects the drop in apparel sales to be worse than the over-

all comparable-store sales decline through the year. The change in consumer shopping habits has also led rivals such as Macy’s Inc. and Kohl’s Corp. to report weak sales in recent quarters. Penney started selling home appliances last year after a gap of more than 30 years and has said the category helped attract new customers. The retailer this week said it was expecting second-quarter sales to significantly improve from the first quarter.

On Saturday, the warehouse is hosting the Ferris Fashion Showcase and afterparty for the second time, featuring up-andcoming designers. Producers for the event found the building and,like the teenage Akerberg, immediately saw the place as a great underground party venue. Crank Tools’ signature product is a portable battery pack now in its third generation called the Crank Tools Juice Box. A Kickstarter for the product launches July 20, but Akerberg is already prepping for the VIP Cave Tools launch party next month. The $249 external battery pack will be ofered for $109 to early Kickstarter investors. It’s notable because the pack is about the size of a hardback book but the high capacity nano lithium polymer battery features an electric charge of 18,000 mAh (milliampere hour) and 600 cold cranking amps capable of jump-starting 20 cars and fully charging seven smartphones or an Apple MacBook Pro. The first generation of the device sold about 15,000 units, “which is nothing in electronics, so we barely sold enough to break even,” but that pack wasn’t as powerful as the new model. Akerberg has his sights set on getting the Juice Box into Apple retail stores. But aside from his business aspirations, Akerberg dreams of turning that abandoned warehouse into an oasis. Though he’s only there on a long-term lease, he wants to convert the space to a “green” building with solar panels on the roof, hydroponic gardening, rainwater capture, geothermal heating and “every type of alternative energy that is possible,” said Akerberg. He would like to see if the building could be completely self-sustainable without any city services. Debra D. Bass • 314-340-8236 @debrabass on Twitter dbass@post-dispatch.com

Tennessee becomes fourth state to take action on dicamba REUTERS

Tennessee on Thursday imposed restrictions on the use of dicamba, becoming the fourth state to take action as problems spread over damage the weedkiller causes to crops not genetically modified to withstand it. Missouri on Thursday also announced restrictions, partially rolling back an emergency ban announced last week. Dicamba is sprayed by farmers on crops genetically modified to resist it but it has drifted, damaging vulnerable soybeans, cotton and other crops across the southern United States. Farmers have fought with neighbors over lost crops and brought lawsuits against dicamba producers. Arkansas banned its use last week, and Missouri, which initially halted dicamba spraying on July 7, joined Tennessee with tight restrictions on when and in what weather spraying can be done. Kansas is investigating complaints. Monsanto, which said it has spent years working to make dicamba stickier and limit drift when it is sprayed, is campaigning to overturn the bans. The Creve Coeur-based company, with BASF and DuPont, which also produce dicamba-based weedkillers, has agreed to additional safeguards for product use, Missouri Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn said in a statement on Thursday. “From the moment the stop sale and use order went into efect, we’ve been working to get these weed control products back into the hands of our farmers,” she said. Dicamba is key to Monsanto’s biggest-ever biotech seed launch, which occurred last year. Its Xtend line of soybeans and cotton are designed to tolerate the weedkiller, which replaces earlier products that contained only glyphosate. Some weeds have developed resistance to glyphosate, which Monsanto introduced in the 1990s. Crop seeds such as corn, soybeans and cotton are genetically modified to survive the pesticide while yield-sapping weeds die. Dicamba has long been used to kill weeds prior to the planting of crops, but its use has spiked this season across the United States after regulators last year approved it for crops that are already growing. Monsanto sells a new dicamba formulation under the name XtendiMax. The company says that XtendiMax drifts less than older versions. BASF and DuPont also sell less drift-prone formulations. New restrictions in Missouri include allowing application only from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and only when wind speeds are 10 mph or less. Tennessee’s restrictions are similar.

Fed’s Yellen calls risks of inlation ‘two-sided’ BY MARTIN CRUTISNGER associated Press

WASHINGTON • Federal Reserve

Chair Janet Yellen on Thursday said she believed the risks concerning inflation are “two-sided,” stressing that price gains could either accelerate or slow down. Testifying for the second day before Congress, Yellen sought to expand on remarks she had made Wednesday before the House Financial Services Committee in an apparent effort to adjust views in financial markets. In her House comments, Yellen discussed the possibility that a recent slowdown in inflation could persist longer than the Fed expects. The comments helped trigger a big market rally, with the Dow Jones industrial average hitting a record high. Investors saw the remarks as a signal that the Fed, which has raised interest rates three times since December, might slow the pace of future interest rate increases. But on Thursday, Yellen said that she believed it would be “premature” to conclude that a recent slowdown in price gains meant that the Fed would not be able to achieve its goal of 2 percent annual inflation. While prices have backtracked a bit in recent months, the economy is still operating with tight labor markets, she said. That is likely to generate bigger wage gains in the future, which would push inflation higher. She noted that after discussing the issue, the Fed at its last meeting in June had decided to go ahead and raise its key policy rate for a third time, pushing the federal funds rate to a range of 1 percent to 1.25 percent. After keeping its key policy rate

at a record low near zero for seven years, the central bank began raising rates gradually with one quarter-point hike in December 2015, another one last December and two more in March and June of this year. Many economists believe the Fed will raise rates one more time this year, in either September or December. Some senators asked Yellen whether she believed the Trump administration’s goal of lifting economic growth to 3 percent is realistic. President Donald Trump has pledged to boost growth through a combination of tax cuts, regulatory relief and tougher enforcement of trade laws. Yellen said hitting 3 percent growth in the next five years “would be wonderful ... But I think it would be challenging.” On a regulatory matter, Yellen said that the Fed had the power to remove directors of banks, but she did not give a specific commitment to do so when pressed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Warren, D-Mass., wants to see the directors of San Franciscobased Wells Fargo replaced if they were responsible for the bank’s creation of fake accounts. Yellen described the actions at Wells Fargo as “unacceptable” but she said the Fed needed to conduct a further investigation before deciding what other penalties to impose. In response, Wells Fargo spokeswoman Erika Reynoso said in a statement that “Wells Fargo’s board and management team have taken many actions ... including changes in senior leadership, executive accountability actions and numerous steps to ensure we make things right with any customer afected by unacceptable sales practices.”

‘Major impact’ not expected in Fed shrinking NICKLAUS • FROM B1

head of fixed income investing at Commerce Trust Co., says he would expect an eventual size of about $2 trillion. This isn’t a fire sale; the Fed plans to hit that target by simply not replacing bonds as they mature. It set a cap on the amount of shrinkage it will allow in any given month. Given those constraints, Colbert estimates that the unwinding process will take seven or eight years. “Theoretically, long-term bond yields will rise and it should steepen the yield curve,” he said. The efect won’t be large — perhaps 0.3 to 0.5 percentage point over time, Colbert says — but it would make longterm loans, such as home mortgages, more expensive. That could put a slight damper on consumer and business spending.

If mill shuts down, ‘this town is dead’ STEEL • FROM B1

The Cold War-era law that allows the president to restrict imports of goods deemed critical to national defense pits an iconic industry that has been struggling with imports for decades against companies that have benefited from China flooding the world steel market with excess production. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data compiled by the libertarian Cato Institute, steel mills and steel product factories now employ about 140,000 people, compared to 6.5 million at steel-reliant manufacturers ranging from autos and appliances to machinery.

HOPES AND CONCERNS In Granite City, where about 1,200 of the U.S. Steel plant’s 1,800 workers remain laid of despite the recent restart of some rolling mill operations, there is an air of keen anticipation. “We’re waiting on the 232 to get us back to work,” said Chris Bragg, who was laid of in November 2015 when steel imports surged and oil prices cratered, slashing demand for the mill’s main product, hotrolled steel for oil and gas drilling pipe. Bragg, 46, a father of three, has been working in home construction since then,

making less than half of the $55,000 he earned in his last year working on U.S. Steel’s basic oxygen furnace, which melts iron and alloys into steel. There were few dinners out, no vacations and no high school graduation presents for Bragg’s twin sons last year. TJ’s Place, a bar across the street from a plant gate, canceled its fish fries and taco nights and could close if more workers are not called back, said bartender Diane Valerius. “If that mill shuts down, this town is dead.” Idled steelworkers see the Section 232 probe as a key test of Trump’s commitment to campaign promises to revive U.S. manufacturing and curb imports from China and South Korea. “I voted for Trump because the Democratic Party was going to kill the coal industry and the steel industry in one fell swoop,” said Bill Wiley, 50, a laid-of apprentice millwright. “Somebody has to stick up for us. We’re just asking for a level playing field.” Across the Mississippi in north St. Louis, factory managers at Bachman Machine Co. worry new tariffs and curbs could raise steel prices, putting the 90-year-old maker of stamped steel auto parts at a disadvantage compared to Mexican suppliers.

We may not even notice the increase because the bond market will be constantly responding to other things, including the health of the economy, action by Congress on taxes and spending and the Fed’s own changes in shortterm rates. However, no one really knows how the Fed’s shrinking process might play out. “Unwinding the balance sheet is new territory for the Fed,” says Dan Heckman, senior fixedincome strategist at US Bank. “We’ll become a little more cautious as we get closer to this action.” So far, markets have reacted calmly as one Fed oicial after another has discussed the balance-sheet reduction process. “It’s not really going to have a major impact on the outlook for bond yields,” said Ken Matheny, an economist at Macroeconomic Advisers. “Markets should be very well prepared for this, because the Fed has told us for years it was going to happen.” Matheny says studies show that the Fed reduced longterm rates by about 0.03 per-

“Anything that is out of the norm in terms of a price change is going to be a negative factor for us. If we can’t pass that on, then that hurts us,” said Jerry Ernsky, Bachman’s head of sales and marketing. The 100-employee company buys from steel distributors and often does not know the origin of the steel it uses to make parts for seats, air bags, door mechanisms and other components, Ernsky said. These are sold to larger auto suppliers such as Toyoda Gosei in Perryville, Mo., and ultimately find their way to the U.S. assembly plants of Toyota, Honda, Ford and other automakers. Kei Pang, chief executive of Fergusonbased Nidec Motor Corp., the former Emerson motors unit now owned by Japan’s Nidec Corp., warned Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a letter that import curbs on certain electrical steels “would cause serious and material harm to our companies, our employees, and our customers.” AK Steel is the only remaining U.S. manufacturer of electrical steel, a specialty product with precise magnetic properties used in transformers and motors. It has argued that it needs protection because domestic supplies are needed to safeguard the U.S. electrical grid.

TUBULAR TARGET In similar public comments, U.S. Steel has called for import restrictions on tubular goods for the oil and gas industry as a way of safeguarding U.S. energy independence, a critical national security goal. Foreign steelmakers now supply half the oil and gas drilling and extraction pipe used in the United States. Direct imports from China were largely cut of by successful anti-dumping cases in recent years, only to be replaced by pipe imports from South Korea, which since April have been subject to increased duties. But as U.S. energy firms boost production, foreign-made steel pipes are still

centage point for each $100 billion of bonds it bought between 2008 and 2014. A $2 trillion runoff, then, might push long-term rates up 0.6 percentage point. The economy is much healthier, though, than it was when the Fed was buying bonds to inject liquidity. “To the extent financial markets are functioning more or less normally today, there’s an argument that the impact may be smaller now,” Matheny said. Any efect on interest-sensitive parts of the economy, such as housing, should be modest, he added. Federal Reserve officials, including Chair Janet Yellen, have used the paint-drying analogy to make a similar point: They hope to shrink the balance sheet so gradually that no one will notice. It’s up to Yellen and her colleagues — and perhaps her successor, because her term as chair expires next year — to make the process as boring as possible.

flooding into U.S. ports. Based on June import permit data, The American Iron and Steel Institute estimates that imports of steel pipes for the oil and gas industry are up 237 percent in the first half of 2017 from a year earlier. Ross, the Commerce chief, has indicated he might support protection for U.S. makers of pipes and their suppliers. He told a congressional hearing in June that steel was a “genuine national security issue” and pointed out how a U.S. tubular mill made the body of the massive conventional bomb dropped on Islamic State militants in Afghanistan in April. The 79-year-old billionaire is best known for his work restructuring several bankrupt U.S. steel companies in the early 2000s, selling them to what is now ArcelorMittal. He is formulating trade policy alongside U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, a veteran trade lawyer who represented U.S. Steel in anti-dumping cases. On the other side of the argument, steel users have enlisted dozens of industry trade groups to make the case against broad steel import restrictions. The American Petroleum Institute and 10 other oil and gas trade groups urged Commerce to narrowly define national security and “to consider the potential negative efects of U.S. tarifs or quotas or other measures that would raise the cost of steel inputs for the oil and natural gas industry.” It remains unclear what actions Ross will recommend or whether Trump will implement them. U.S. Steel has not indicated how the Trump administration’s review may alter its production plans, saying in a statement that it was “interested to review the results of the 232 investigation.” Idled workers say the uncertainty is gnawing at them. “There’s nothing that Trump’s done as of yet” for steelworkers, said Paul Morris, 55. “All we can do is sit back and wait.”

ADVANCING ST. LOUIS SPONSORED CONTENT Each week, we will feature local leaders of small businesses and large corporations that are impacting the St. Louis region from a variety of different industries. These leaders are Advancing St. Louis by inspiring change and starting conversation.

THE STAENBERG GROUP Michael Staenberg The Staenberg Group develops, leases and manages shopping centers throughout the United States. The retail business in the St. Louis area makes up approximately 35 percent of the portfolio. Led by industry leader Michael Staenberg, he and his team build on the philosophy of creating superior shopping centers with a commitment to the community and a dedication to the environment. Although Staenberg’s success in commercial real estate is extraordinary, he considers philanthropy his greatest achievement in life. BORN • OMAHA, NEBRASKA

ANY NEW PROJECTS UNDERWAY? Not only new projects but the redevelopment of projects. Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh will be a new offering in the St. Louis market with its irst location in Clayton. This is an opportune time to bring a healthy option to the fast-casual dining experience. Something that is sorely missing in our region. We are also working with the Chesterield Hockey Association to lead their efforts in developing the new Chesterield SportsComplex in Chesterield Valley. This project relects our desire to be active in the communities that we serve. We are in the process of redeveloping a property at Osage Beach. It will bring about 131,000 square feet of traditional retail and food businesses and will be located near the Premium Outlet. WHAT OTHER PARTNERSHIPS ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH? I am always interested in looking into innovative ways of doing business and then iguring out how to bring new opportunities to St. Louis. As the curator of many consumer brands, I see ideas from varying perspectives and across multiple industries. Technology and

fast-casual restaurant development are two that I feel complement one another. And philanthropy is an area that gives me the opportunity to give back monetarily and provide business expertise through our pro bono work. Givable St. Louis is a new online “giving” platform that I helped to develop with Kathy Osborn of the Regional Business Council and Brian Matthews with Cultivation Capital. It addresses the need to help people connect with nonproit organizations in St. Louis by raising money and building awareness of important causes right here in our own community. HeadsUp is a revenue forecast and predictive tool that uses weather forecasts (in addition to historical weather) to accurately predict future revenue. This enables restaurant operators to better optimize service levels and help maximize store level proitability. Currently, our Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh restaurant in Denver is beta testing the program. We all know that St. Louis weather can be volatile so we hope to offer this locally to better serve customers in multiple markets. Tovala, pronounced toe-VAH-lah, is a multifunction smart oven and fooddelivery system for healthy cooking at home. The name is a combination of

the Italian word for table – tavola and the Hebrew word for good – tov. We are testing it at our St. Louis ofice with great results. WHO INSPIRED YOU ALONG THE WAY? I’ve had a lot of mentors in my life. You have to choose the right people to take guidance from. Trust your gut. Someone who really helped to shape my thinking was I.E. Millstone. He was a businessman and a philanthropist who led by example. But more importantly, he had a vision and knew how to make things happen. WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO GIVE BACK? I was raised in a family of modest means but my parents never used that as an excuse not to support our community. We felt lucky to have a roof over our heads and food on the table and we understood that was not the case for all. My parents taught us that it is always important to give to people who are less fortunate and to also look for other ways to help. The lessons of my upbringing have stayed with me throughout my life and have become the basis for our philanthropy.

FUELING CHANGE THROUGH GIVING Source: givable.org • Photo by St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER AS YOUR GREATEST PHILANTHROPIC ACHIEVEMENT? The Jewish Community Center (JCC) in St. Louis has been my greatest philanthropic achievement. I became involved at a time when it needed to be reinvigorated with a new vision and approach to their facilities. I put a lot of money into its redevelopment, but more importantly I gave my time and expertise. I am proud to say that it is now a model for Jewish Community Centers throughout the country and a place where everyone is welcome. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHO TO SUPPORT? It’s not just the amount of the gift but the number of people you can directly impact. When I look at getting involved I also think about how we can help with resources other than just money. If we can secure a freezer for a food pantry it ends up helping thousands. Something as simple as coordinating a new sound system for a camp can change the experience of the campers for years to come. Gifts, big and small, can make a real difference.

Some divisions appear settled, while others remain wide open BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

When only 40 percent of the major league teams have a winning record, you either have several very good teams or a lot of mediocre to bad ones. The jury seems to weigh in on the latter as the season heads into the last 11 ½ weeks of play. The National League is particularly guilty with only five of its 15 teams above

break-even, which speaks somewhat to its consistently poor interleague play record. The AL, which has a 93-82 lead, surely will win that competition for the 14th consecutive year. But the National League is almost certain to have one divisional race, even though Milwaukee has a 5 ½ game lead as play resumes on Friday. The Cardinals and Chicago Cubs, who have won the last four division titles, are looming, if one can say

“looming” at two games under .500. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina even goes so far as to say “all five teams” in the NL Central have a chance to win the division, which covers the Cincinnati Reds, who remain 10 games under .500 but still mathematically alive, 9 ½ games back after winning four out of seven at Colorado and Arizona. Thirty percent of the playof field is all but set with Houston, leading by 16 ½

games in the American League Western Division, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals comfortably in front in the NL West and East, respectively. In the American League, all of the 15 teams theoretically have a chance to qualify for the playofs with even the Chicago White Sox, the worst team in the league at See MLB • Page C4

Girsch knows scrutiny awaits

For Warner, it has to be Brenda

New GM will be watched carefully as moves unfold

QB’s wife to introduce him at Hall of Fame induction BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JOSE de JESUS ORTIZ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Michael Girsch doesn’t need to go far for trade ideas. This town is full of people who have ideas on how to make the Cardinals better, and he understands that he’ll ultimately be judged by his moves. At this early point in Girsch’s tenure as general manager, though, it’s more similar to a blissful engagement period than even a honeymoon, because John Mozeliak still will play a critical deciding role during this upcoming non-waiver trade deadline. Nonetheless, Girsch can sense the added weight on his shoulders since he was promoted on June 30 after Mozeliak was elevated to president of baseball operations. “We’ve been highly successful,” Girsch said over lunch Thursday. “Generally when a new GM comes in it’s because things have gone poorly. And so in the short term, expectations are usually pretty low. In the long term there’s a lot of upside. We’ve been doing great. The expectations are that we keep doing great. That’s a lot of responsibility.” The Cardinals had a 10-game See ORTIZ • Page C5

It’s rare for wives to serve as presenters during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. In fact, only two of 303 Hall of Famers inducted prior to this year’s class were introduced by their wives: • Deanna Favre presented quarterback Brett Favre last year. • Kim Singletary presented linebacker Mike Singletary in 1998. But in the case of former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner, who is part of the seven-member Class of 2017, could there be anyone other than Brenda Warner? Considering all they’ve been through, particularly in the early years of their relationship, it was all but a slamdunk choice. In a conference call Thursday, Warner said he went through a lot of names as possible presenters for his Aug. 5 induction in Canton, Ohio, including coaches he has had over the years as well as his seven children. “But I think the bottom line is through this entire journey — all the ups and downs, all the good and bad — there’s been one person that’s been through it all,” Warner said. “That’s sacrificed as much as I had, and really allowed me within our circumstances to chase after my dream.” That would be Brenda, a former Ma-

DIGEST Wizards match ofer of $106 million for Porter The Washington Wizards matched the Brooklyn Nets’ $106 million, four-year ofer sheet to keep forward Otto Porter, making him the team’s highest paid player. Team president Ernie Grunfeld announced the move Thursday. Under NBA rules, the Wizards had two days to match Brooklyn’s ofer sheet for the 24-year-old restricted free agent. Porter’s new deal puts his salary ahead of guards Bradley Beal and John Wall. He set career highs with 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and shooting and 3-point percentages of .516 and .434 last season, his fourth as a professional. “Otto has developed into a vital part of our young core, which is why we made it clear that our priority was to keep him here to maintain continuity and build on the success of this group heading into next season and beyond,” Grunfeld said in a statement. “His versatility, basketball IQ and three-point shooting combine to make him a great fit for us on the floor while his character and work in the community show why we’re so pleased to have him as a cornerstone of our franchise.” Porter finished fourth in the league in 3-point shooting last season and had 14 games of 20-plus points. Ference announces retirement • Veteran defenseman Andrew Ference, who won a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins in 2011, has announced his retirement from the NHL after 16 seasons. The 38-year-old made his announcement after spending the past four seasons with Edmonton, where he served as the Oilers’ captain from 2013-15. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound Ference totaled 43 goals, 182 assists and 753 penalty minutes in 907 career games with Pittsburgh, Calgary, Boston and Edmonton. Elsewhere in the NHL, San Jose re-signed forward Chris Tierney to a one-year contract. The 23-year-old had 11 goals and 12 assists in 80 games for San Jose last season. ... Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. is considering selling the NHL team. Hurricanes spokesman Mike Sundheim said in a statement that Karmanos is deciding whether to accept an ofer for the franchise or remain the owner. ... Los Angeles re-signed Andrei Loktionov, the Russian center who won a Stanley Cup ring with the club in 2012. Loktionov was a fifth-round pick by the Kings in 2008, and he played 59 games with Los Angeles over three seasons. Nuggets sign Millsap • The Denver Nuggets announced the signing of four-time All-Star Paul Millsap. A highly coveted free agent, the former Atlanta forward agreed to a three-year deal worth $90 million. The 32-year-old Millsap gives the youthful Nuggets a proven veteran to pair with budding star Nikola Jokic. NASCAR promotes Dewar • NASCAR has promoted Brent Dewar from chief operating oicer to president. Dewar becomes the fourth person ever to hold the title of NASCAR president.

At this time last summer a deal was sizzling that was intended to make Tim McKernan the guru of AM sports-talk radio in St. Louis, the centerpiece of a lucrative business arrangement for the local broadcaster and media entrepreneur. Randy Markel, owner of KFNS (590 AM), made a proposal to McKernan that could pay him more than $1.2 million in salary over five years in addition to many perks — including a $50,000 signing bonus. McKernan also would be given a 25 percent stake in a company. But a good portion of McKernan’s compensation was tied to Markel recouping his investment — which not only hasn’t happened, but the debt still is growing. The deal called for McKernan to run the station’s daily operations as well as continue as a co-host of “The Morning After” program. And the goal was that he eventually would buy out Markel. “Tim will be in charge,” Markel, who also owns Chucks Boots stores, said then. “I’ve got other things that I’m going to do.” The deal eventually was finalized and took efect in September, with McKernan moving his empire from WGNU (920 AM). That included programming, his insideSTL.com website and business operations. Things were so good between the parties that the name of the company became “McKernan Radio Group.” But a year later, things are vastly different. McKernan hasn’t been running things for months and is concentrating on the popular morning program that also features Jim Hayes and Doug Vaughn and runs from 7-10 a.m. on weekdays. And now his deal is in the process of being restructured, which would result in him no longer being an owner as well as president and CEO of the company. Markel would have full control. The sides have reached an agreement that is expected to be signed soon, both said. Why the big change in the business approach? Quite simply, Markel has been much more hands-on than he indicated last summer and didn’t like some of McKernan’s personnel moves, especially shifting the comedyheavy “We Are Live” show from evenings to afternoon drive time. It since has moved to WGNU and been renamed “Saint Louis Live,” in the 7-10 a.m. weekday slot. Because the revamped deal hasn’t been signed, McKernan declined to comment on any specifics about that. But Markel was very talkative, and those contrasting styles say a lot about their relationship that by all accounts remains solid. McKernan was conservative in operating the station, which he thought would be run in the same fashion with which he had been successful elsewhere. That was a patient, sales-oriented approach without a major budget that mixed shows in which some hosts were paid outright with others having “brokered” airtime — either a revenue split with the station or broadcasters buying their slots and then selling their own advertising for their salary. Markel instead has thrown a lot money around on hiring hosts with name recognition, and doesn’t want to be bothered with longterm plans. He wants an immediate splash, which of course adds overhead that requires more personnel on the business side. He said by early August the sales staf will have gone from one last winter to five people. Overseeing all of that is impractical for one man to do alone while also having a show in addition to other obligations, and McKernan asked for a change. So Markel hired former KTRS (550 AM) sports director John Hadley in March to run the operations, and Hadley recently added on-air duties. Markel also had former St. Louis sports-talk radio executive Dave Greene on board for a short time. “Things just weren’t getting done in a timely manner,” Markel said of how things were running with the more grandiose arrangement. “Tim no longer wanted to run the business, put in the 50-60 hours a week it took, not with a pregnant wife and his own show. I wanted Dave Greene to do it. But he couldn’t be the sales manager and also run the station. You can’t have one guy holding two major jobs. So I brought Hadley in.”

‘OUR BIGGEST STAR’ Markel remains bullish on McKernan, who he says will thrive under the new set-up as he can expand his broadcast duties. “I’m a big believer in locking up

your stars, and Tim is our biggest star,” he said. “This deal is very advantageous to both of us. Tim is giving up his share of the ownership, and it will allow him to do other things that he wants to do — he’s about to be a father, he wants to do a podcast. I could not be any more supportive of him.” And though McKernan wouldn’t talk about the deal, he did discuss his bond with Markel. “Randy and I have a good relationship,” he said. “He says that I am like a younger brother to him, and we get together regularly for lunch and talk often on the phone. For the last few months, we have been working together on a new agreement that would not only keep ‘The Morning After’ at 590 for a long time but allow me to focus on new projects that I have wanted to start, but with hosting the show and operating the station I have not had the time to do.” Markel said McKernan would lose some of the perks he had in the current deal, but new ones would be added. “It’s virtually a push” in his compensation, Markel said, using a gambling term that refers to a tie. As recently as four months ago Markel ofered to sell the entire operation to McKernan for what he said was $2.5 million. But Markel now says he’s not selling — to McKernan or anyone else. “I’m having too much fun, meeting too many interesting people,” he said.“I’m having a ball.” And he’s not done tinkering. Markel already has opened his checkbook to bring in Martin Kilcoyne, Charlie Marlow, Cam Janssen and T.J. Moe, in addition to some lesser-known names. But he’s still not set on the afternoon drive-time show, which seemingly has been in constant flux for nearly a year and now features Janssen, Moe and Hadley. Other afternoon lineup tweaks have been discussed. “We are consistently looking to upgrade whenever possible,” Markel said. “We’ve said that from Day One. And we’re not done getting people.” Could one be Kevin Slaten, for a fifth go-round at KFNS? “I never say never,” Markel said. “Kevin has immense talent.”

THE BOTTOM LINE It has been more than a year and a half since Markel and Scott Gertken purchased KFNS out of bankruptcy after it crumbled under Grand Slam Sports ownership. Markel, who since has bought Gertken’s share of the company, acknowledges the station still is not turning a profit. But he is optimistic as it vies with FM powerhouse WXOS (101.1) in the local sports-talk battles. “We are closing in on the breakeven point,” he said. “There have been a lot of one-time expenses, and we’re opening a new studio soon (tied to a restaurant in Kirkwood) and that will be a big plus.” He said by the time that studio opens he will have invested about $2.5 million in the operation. “I said I was good for $3 million, so it’s going how I thought it would. I don’t care about the money, I care about getting the best sports radio station St. Louis ever has had. I knew it would take time. We want to be the class. We are right on target with where we thought we’d be. If we can get afternoon dive time figured out, we’ll be there. And we will.” “I’m 61. I’m in the fourth quarter. I need to get this where I want it in case I keel over tomorrow!” Markel, a big-talking former Texan, likes to joke. But he is serious about the business. “I’m putting a lot of money into it. I’ll be extremely disappointed if it doesn’t work,” he said. “But it should. I’m happier than I have been in the last year about the future of our company. We’re going to do some big things.” Dan Caesar • 314-340-8175 @caesardan on Twitter dcaesar@post-dispatch.com

KSDK adds sportscaster KSDK has ended its long journey to fill out its sports staf, hiring a broadcaster who has served as a news reporter and part-time sportscaster in Kansas City for the last two years. Josh Helmuth is scheduled to start at Channel Helmuth 5 on Thursday, although he probably won’t appear on the air until the following week. “He’s always been very passionate about sports,” KSDK news director Karin Movesian said. “And he’s a good storyteller,” which is emphasized in the station’s newscasts. Helmuth is to work as a sports reporter and anchor, joining Frank Cusumano and Audrey Dahlgren as the station’s sportscasters. A position has been open in the department since Rene Knott moved from the sports director’s post to a morning news anchor position last fall and Cusumano was promoted to Knott’s old job. Before going to Kansas City, Helmuth worked in Bakersfield, Calif, in a similar role. He went to the University of Alabama. SOCCER SEARCH • The United States plays a CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer match on Saturday night in Cleveland, and because of a busy TV schedule it will be shown on a channel unfamiliar to many who are looking for sports telecasts. Fox networks have the rights to the tournament, and the game normally would appear either on it’s over-the-air outlet, Fox Sports (KTVI, Channel 2 locally) or its main cable component — FS1. But Fox Sports is showing boxing that night (Omar Figueroa vs. Robert Guerrero is the feature bout) and FS1 has baseball (Texas-Kansas City). So the U.S. soccer match, at 6 p.m. (St. Louis time) against Nicaragua, is being shuled to FXX, an entertainmentoriented Fox outlet that has greater distribution than sports-centric FS2. Here is where that channel appears on the major programming providers available locally: Charter Spectrum (Channel 76), DirecTV (259), AT&T U-Verse (128 and 1128), Dish Network (240). BLASTING OFF • Once again, St. Louis out-performed the national average in television ratings for baseball’s marquee midsummer events, the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. The game, on Tuesday night and shown by Fox (Channel 2 locally), was seen in 15.4 percent of area homes with a television. That’s according to Nielsen, which tabulates viewership. The Derby, on Monday night and televised by ESPN, drew a 6.8 rating locally and a 4.4 figure nationally. Ratings, nationally and locally, for those events dating to 2002: ALL-STAR GAME Year Nat.

Auburn’s Smith awaits Mizzou game BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-dispatch

HOOVER, ALA. • Auburn is the pop-

It’s a “safe assumption” that five-star Missouri basketball commitment Jontay Porter will reclassify and enroll at MU to play the upcoming season for the Tigers, he told CBSSports.com Thursday at the Peach Jam AAU tournament in North Augusta, S.C. The 6-foot-11 Porter, who committed to Mizzou’s 2018 recruiting class in May, had his transcripts approved by the NCAA last month, allowing him to enroll at MU this year, multiple sources have confirmed. Porter attended Father Tolton High School in Columbia his first two years of high school and then moved to Seattle last year. He was home schooled and played for Nathan Hale High. At MU, he’ll reunite with his older brother Michael, the nation’s top-ranked recruit for the 2017 class, and their father, Michael Porter Sr., an assistant coach on Cuonzo Martin’s staf. For the last five months, Martin’s staff has reserved one scholarship to use for Jontay Porter. Meeting with reporters earlier this week in Columbia, Martin could not discuss Jontay Porter directly but said he expected to use the available scholarship. Porter would give the Tigers six newcomers for the 2017-18 season and help replenish a frontcourt that also added 6-10 East St. Louis forward Jeremiah Tilmon. Jontay Porter is ranked the country’s No. 11 recruit in the 2018 class by Rivals.com. His addition would surely boost Mizzou’s national ranking for the 2017 class. MU’s class is currently ranked No. 7, trailing only Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, Texas, UCLA and Alabama. Since teaming with his brother to win the Washington state high school championship, Porter has spent the spring and summer playing for MOKAN Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit. Jontay Porter committed to Washington last year but opened his recruitment after the Huskies fired coach Lorenzo Romar in March. Michael Porter Jr. coached on Romar’s staf last season. “I’ve always felt I could be great at the highest level but not many other people believed in me other than my dad and brother,” Jontay Porter said when he committed to Mizzou. “I think I’m starting to prove I can be one of the top dudes in my class or maybe the next class and hopefully bring the intensity level and success I’ve had to the college level and eventually the NBA.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze delivered lengthy opening remarks Thursday at the Southeastern Conference’s annual media gathering in Hoover, Ala. BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-dispatch

HOOVER, ALA. • Just 18 months ago, Ole

Miss was celebrating a Sugar Bowl victory over Oklahoma State that gave the Rebels 10 wins for the first time in 12 years. Hugh Freeze’s program had improved each year under his watch, from seven wins in 2012, his first season, to the triumphant 2015. The Rebels toppled No. 1 Alabama and finished the season No. 10 in the Associated Press poll, the team’s top postseason ranking since 1963. Momentum has since stalled in Oxford, Miss., to say the least. In the first three weeks of the 2016 season, the Rebels squandered three-touchdown leads against Florida State and Alabama, lost both games and spiraled to 5-7. Freeze’s team plummeted to last place in the SEC West and missed the postseason for the first time in his five seasons. The Rebels lost five of their seven final games, four by double digits and bottomed out with losses to Vanderbilt, and Egg Bowl rival Mississippi State by a combined 56 points. If only the problems ended there. The NCAA has been investigating the program for more than four years and in February issued a second Notice of Allegations, accusing the football program of 21 rules violations. Less than 24 hours before Freeze met with reporters here for Thursday’s final session of Southeastern Conference Media Days, former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt filed a civil lawsuit against the university for defamation of character, alleging that Freeze and athletics director Ross Bjork smeared his reputation by telling reporters the former coach was responsible for the NCAA violations. Also, an Ole Miss retail store in Oxford has filed a civil complaint against two Mississippi State players who told NCAA investigators the store gave them illegal benefits. As expected, Freeze faced plenty of questions here Thursday, few of which he answered. Freeze spent more than half his allotted 30 minutes at the podium giving the most breathless opening statement of any coach here this week — 2,773 words, according to the oicial transcript. “Facing adversity is something that we’re familiar with,” said Freeze, who read prepared lines from a stack of papers during part of his address. “It’s kind of been around us for a while now, and I sure will be glad for the day when I can stand here and it’s not.” Freeze called 2017 “a growing season”

for his team. He touted the team’s high Academic Progress Rate score and its track record for community service. On the field, under a self-imposed bowl ban, the Rebels will have to measure this fall by unconventional means. With no championships at stake, no bowl invitation to secure, players need more intrinsic motivation to approach the regular season. “Of course, when (the bowl ban) first happened it was kind of devastating,” quarterback Shea Patterson said. “We all came here to win a national championship, but I think it has brought us all closer together. Adversity tends to crumble people apart or brings guys together. I have never been around a group of guys and coaches that have worked as hard as we have in the spring in the summer.” “We’re still here to play,” ofensive lineman Javon Patterson said. “We’re still in the SEC.” Freeze had little to say about Nutt’s lawsuit. “I would absolutely love to share my opinion on that,” he said, “but unfortunately it’s a legal case and I can’t comment.” Freeze, a decorated high school coach in the 1990s and early 2000s, came to Oxford in 2011 after one 10-win season at Arkansas State. Known for his innovative ofense, Freeze quickly upgraded Ole Miss’ roster with nationally celebrated recruiting classes. His 2013 class ranked No. 7 by Rivals.com and included the country’s top-ranked players at offensive tackle, wide receiver and defensive end. But the bottom fell out in 2016 when the NCAA released its first of two Notices of Allegations. The Rebels refuted several charges but also docked the team 10 scholarships spread over three classes in 2016-18. The bowl ban will cost the school nearly $8 million in league revenue. Despite last year’s struggles on the field and the of-field scrutiny, Freeze said his administration is “extremely confident” in his leadership. “They’ve been unwavering in their support of me,” he said. “They obviously witnessed me for five years run a program.” As for the coming season, Freeze said he might take more chances as a play-caller. Perhaps more gambles on fourth down, he said. Patterson, another former fivestar recruit, opens the season as Freeze’s quarterback after taking over late last season when starter Chad Kelly got hurt. The Rebels have a veteran offensive line and one of the league’s best pass rushers in defensive end Marquis Haynes. The talent might be good enough to distract Freeze’s critics for a few hours every Saturday, but ultimately the Rebels must answer to the NCAA. Until then, Freeze believes the Rebels could have their “greatest hour” this fall. “We can model for a lot of people what it can look like for people that genuinely care for one another,” he said, “and then set an example of how you go through difficult times.” Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

ular choice as the Southeastern Conference’s top contender to knock off three-time league champion Alabama, thanks to the arrival of quarterback Jarrett Stidham, a Baylor transfer. But another big reason for high hopes on The Plains resides along the line of scrimmage. Braden Smith, Auburn’s 6-6, 303-pound senior offensive lineman, is one of 17 returning starters and could earn All-American honors with another strong season. He’ll have plenty of friendly faces in the crowd Sept. 23 at Memorial Stadium when Auburn visits Mizzou for the first time in team history. Smith grew up in Olathe, Kan., just across the state border. Missouri was the first team to ofer him a scholarship when he played for Olathe South High School. “Definitely it’s a big game for me just being closer to home,” Smith said at the final session of SEC Media Days. “I’ll see a lot of my friends there.” Smith has been a regular starter at right guard but is expected to move to tackle this season, coach Gus Malzahn said. Wherever he lines up, Smith gives the Tigers one of the league’s strongest, most versatile blockers. Malzahn hasn’t settled on a quarterback but has two intriguing choices: incumbent Sean White, who’s been effective when healthy, and Stidham, whose versatility could make him the perfect candidate for Malzhan’s version of the spread ofense. Stidham got the bulk of the snaps in three games at Baylor in 2015, throwing for 934 yards and six touchdowns against Kansas State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. “He’s a lot better athlete than people think,” Malzahn said. “I think he started at wide receiver his sophomore year. He’s got a 35-36 inch vertical. He runs a 4.6. In our league, you have to escape. Things are going to break down. The defensive lines are too good. You have to have a quarterback that can escape pressure, keep his eyes down the field, know when to throw it, know when to run it, and protect the football and make good decisions.”

WEST IS BEST FOR AUBURN On Monday, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey shut down any rumblings of realignment, meaning Auburn and Missouri aren’t switching places anytime soon. That’s fine with Malzahn. “You know, hey, I like the way it is right now,” he said. “I mean, the West right now is the best league in college football. It’s a man’s league. You got Alabama right now that is the top of the deal. And I like playing against them. I like playing against LSU. I like Ole Miss and Mississippi State, Texas A&M. So, I think that was probably a little bit blown out of proportion.”

BOLD MOVE PAYS OFF In his first season at South Carolina last year, Will Muschamp made a bold move when he turned the ofense over to freshman quarterback Jake Bentley six games in. The rookie wasn’t a typical freshman. He came to Columbia, S.C., one year ahead of schedule after graduating high school early. After a 14-point loss to Georgia dropped the Gamecocks to 2-3, Muschamp figured it was time for change. “I went home that night and was just kind of going through in my mind just thinking what we need to do to improve,” Muschamp said. “I called (athletics director Ray) Tanner. I said, ‘Am I wrong to think we need to play a high school senior?’ He said, ‘Absolutely not.’ He said, ‘You know, if your gut tells you to do it, do it.’ So I went into the oice Monday morning, I told (offensive coordinator) Kurt (Roper), ‘We’re going to open it up.’” Bentley, who joined Muschamp at Media Days, led the Gamecocks to four wins in his seven starts. His composure is a big reason South Carolina has been mentioned as a sleeper pick in the SEC East Division. Had he qualified for the league statistical rankings, Bentley would have led the league in completion percentage (65.8) and yards per attempt (9.1).

HALFWAY HOME: THE DIVISION RACES NATIONAL LEAGUE EAST BIGGEST SURPRISE Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman, an All-Star third baseman in 2009 but who had faded into the background because of injuries, a bad throwing arm and Bryce Harper, has rebounded to have an All-Star year at first base.

NATIONAL LEAGUE CENTRAL

AMERICAN LEAGUE EAST

BIGGEST SURPRISE Milwaukee’s Corey Knebel struck out at least one man in a record 43 consecutive appearances at the start of the season. The Brewers’ new closer had two saves before this year.

BIGGEST SURPRISE Granted, the Arizona Diamondbacks suffered a rash of injuries last year but nobody really saw them as a strong playof contender this year. But Zach Greinke and Robbie Ray are about as good as anybody else’s Nos. 1-2 starters and the offense is dangerous, even deep in the order.

BIGGEST SURPRISE Aaron Judge hit .179 for the New York Yankees, albeit in a cameo role, last year. Everyone knew he had power, but his ability to hit to the opposite field and his strike zone recognition really have caught attention.

BIGGEST SURPRISE The Minnesota Twins, with no bombshell additions. They lost 103 games, most in the majors last year but All-Star Miguel Sano, in his second full season, has galvanized the ofense and All-Star righthander Ervin Santana has four complete games, which might wind up high for the season.

BIGGEST SURPRISE Even though the Houston Astros’ talent was well known, the fact they ended the first half 31 games over .500 was unforeseeable. With another starting pitcher, the Astros may win their first World Series. Or at least their first World Series game.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT Yes, they’ve had injuries to their pitching and to their ofense but the Mets appeared at the start of the season to be “all in” on contending for a World Series spot. They may not even make it to .500.

Kyle Schwarber

Madison Bumgarner

Terry Collins Aaron Judge Jose Altuve Miguel Sano

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT Name any one of several Cubs, or even the whole Cubs team. But a start would be Kyle Schwarber, who destroyed the Cardinals in the 2015 division series and helped spark the Cubs in last year’s World Series after recovering from a serious knee injury. He saw the bright lights of Des Moines recently. WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF The Mets’ Terry Collins, a good man and manager, may not be able to stave of the wolves this time. General manager Sandy Alderson hardly is secure either.

X FACTOR Can Washington acquire a closer to help the Nationals win one playof series, let alone contend for the title?

WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF Yadier Molina says the Cardinals need to play more “small ball.” That means advancing runners instead of running into outs and making routine plays. Home runs alone won’t get them a ticket to October. X FACTOR The Brewers accomplished much of what they have without injured slugger Ryan Braun. Now he is back. “You want some guys who have been around that are going to calm a young kid’s fears,” said Mattingly.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT The San Francisco Giants, who had the best record in the majors at the All-Star break last year, have one of the worst now. And they had started to go south even before staf ace Madison Bumgarner fancied himself as a motocross star. WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF Can the young Colorado rotation hold up when the innings pitched approach 175 or even 200? X FACTOR It’s almost always the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw, the best pitcher on the planet. If he can stay healthy and isn’t overworked, he can lead the Dodgers to their fi first rst World Series appearance in 29 years.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT Even though the Red Sox are atop the division, they have received nothing for the second year in a row from oft-injured third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who has played only 32 games this year after playing three last year. Two more years left at $19 million a year. He now is rehabbing after contracting an ear infection. WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF The Toronto Blue Jays, the most disappointing team in the division, have many high-priced veterans they would consider unloading. X FACTOR Lefthander David Price is rounding back into form for the Red Sox after missing a couple of months with an elbow injury. For the first first time in a while, he is not the focal point of anyone’s staff because of Chris Sale. Perhaps Price can even win a game in October.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT The Detroit Tigers. That sound you hear is the window slamming shut on veterans Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera if they remain with the Tigers, who may finish last with them. WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF From potential sellers at the July 31 trading deadline, the Kansas City Royals, very much in the playof hunt, are seeking a starting pitcher. And, with their farm system fairly bereft, they intend to try to re-sign the likes of Eric Hosmer, Miks Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar and Jason Vargas. X FACTOR The health of Cleveland manager Terry Francona, one of the best at his job. Francona had a recent heart procedure and missed the AllStar Game plus several games before that. The Indians also need to get on the American League interleague train. They are only 3-11 against the National League.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT Perennial division champion Texas won’t win it this year. The Rangers have had bullpen woes all season. They could have used that Knebel fellow they sent away. WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THE SECOND HALF How motivated will Houston be to keep winning nearly every day? There are the two carrots of the second 100win season in franchise history and home-field advantage all the through the postseason. Also, the Astros have 13 interleague games left. They are 7-0 so far. X FACTOR The Angels’ Mike Trout (torn thumb ligament) will co come of the disabled list on Friday night. The Angels are only three games out of wild-card contention and, suddenly, they have back the league’s best player. Rick Hummel

Central divisions are the most closely contested MLB • FROM C1

38-49 just 7 ½ games behind a wild-card spot. However, they would have to pass nine teams and they just traded to the crosstown Cubs one of their best pitchers in Jose Quintana. That is the high-road look at the second half. The low-road would be that there are two divisions, the NL Central and AL West, in which just one team (Milwaukee, Houston) is above .500. And maybe the Brewers won’t go softly into the good night. Miami manager Don Mattingly, whose team played the Brewers a week before the break, said, “They probably think they’re a little bit ahead of schedule but their young guys are playing with energy, playing with a lot of excitement. They’re pretty versatile. If their pitch-

ing can hold out for them. . . they’re going to be a team that can score runs because they have some speed. “The Cubs? Anytime you’re the world champions, you worry about that first half of the season, just because guys have been out all winter celebrating. It’s human nature. You take it a little easier in the winter because you’ve accomplished something. But you’d think that a championship team is going to rise up. So, to me, they would be the dangerous club. “The Cardinals are always the Cardinals. Pittsburgh is hot and cold. They don’t seem to be able to get it together for long periods of time.” If the playofs were to start today, only four of last year’s 10 entrants would qualify. Wash-

ington and Los Angeles are likely to defend their division titles in the National League, and World Series runner-up Cleveland and Boston are American League division leaders who could repeat their titles. Last year’s wild card teams — San Francisco, New York Mets, Toronto, Baltimore — take a seat somewhere else. There’s no room for you here. Milwaukee has yet to play any of its seven games against division leader Washington and has three games at division-leading Los Angeles. The Cardinals have finished playing both teams. “There’s a lot of baseball to be played,” said the Cardinals’ Matt Carpenter. For the sake of the game, hopefully, it will be played a lot better. In a lot of cities.

Cubs acquire Quintana from White Sox Rick Hahn said letting him go was a difficult choice for the rebuilding team. “He’s a true professional who had to deal with everything from poor run support to the bullpen occasionally letting him down, the defense letting him down,” Hahn said. “He certainly never complained, never threw his arms up in the air, never rolled his eyes, never expressed any displeasure with his teammates.”

The Chicago Cubs found the pitching help they were looking for just a few miles from Wrigley Field. They hope it will give the sculing team the kick it needs. The defending World Series champions acquired lefthanded ace Jose Quintana from the White Sox on Thursday in a major trade between crosstown rivals that could shake up the NL Central race. By landing the 2016 All-Star, the Cubs made it clear they’re not giving up on a diicult season after arriving at the break two games under .500. They also added a pitcher who figures to be a key piece in the rotation for at least the next few years. “We had a bad first half,” Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. “We did. We own that. We know we can do better.” The Cubs trail Milwaukee by 51/2 games in the division at 43-45 after ending a 108-year championship drought last fall. They believe they are set up to contend for years to come with stars such as Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. By trading for Quintana, they brought in an elite starter who is under club control through 2020. They had to give up two top prospects in outfielder Eloy Jimenez and righthanded pitcher Dylan Cease along with minor league infielders Matt Rose and Bryant Flete. Quintana has pitched better lately after a slow start and is 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA in 18 starts this season. He won a career-high 13 games last season with a personal-best 3.20 ERA while making his first All-Star team and is 50-54 with a 3.51 ERA since debuting with the White Sox in 2012. White Sox general manager

Rasmus to “step away” • The Tampa Bay Rays have placed injured outfielder Colby Rasmus on the restricted list after the player’s decision to “step away from baseball.” The team did not provide specifics, instead saying in a brief statement that the club fully supports his decision. He was limited by injuries to appearing in 37 games this season, but was batting .281 with nine homers and 23 RBIs in 121 at-bats. Brewers acquire Webb • The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired lefthanded reliever Tyler Webb from the New York Yankees for minor league first baseman Garrett Cooper. Webb had a 4.50 ERA in seven appearances this year season with the Yankees without recording a decision. Webb made his big league debut on June 24 after going 3-1 with a 3.24 ERA in 21 games at Triple-A. He turns 27 next week.

Jose Quintana will be moving across town from the White Sox to the Cubs.

Season ends for reliever • Chicago White Sox reliever Nate Jones has undergone season-ending arm surgery. Sidelined since April 28 because of inflammation in his right elbow, he experienced discomfort during a throwing session last week.

homestand after Girsch was promoted, so he had a chance to see how much his profile has grown overall throughout this area and specifically in his community near Webster Groves. Although he had played a pivotal role for the organization as Mozeliak’s assistant general manager since 2011, he was more in the background. Even the folks in his community who knew he worked with the Cardinals had no idea he had such a prominent position in baseball operations until recently. “I’d say a lot of people knew I worked for the Cardinals but had no idea what I did,” he said. “They didn’t know if I sold tickets or sold advertising. A lot of people have congratulated me. My son’s 9-year-old baseball team all had suggestions for trades. … Before, only a couple of friends used to give me recommendations on trades. Now his whole team came over after the game and had a list of suggestions for me.” He added with a gentle smile: “All very doable.” Speaking of trades, Girsch showed up to our previously scheduled lunch interview shortly after his hometown Cubs acquired White Sox lefthander Jose Quintana. In Quintana, the Cubs acquired one of the top frontline starters on the market. The price was quite hefty, considering the White Sox received elite outfield prospect Eloy Jimenez, pitcher Dylan Cease and infielders Matt Rose and Bryant Flete. In Jimenez, the White Sox now have the player ESPN’s Keith Law ranks as the fifth best prospect in baseball in his midseason Top 50. Cease is a hard-throwing righthander who could be special. Before the Quintana trade, the Cardinals appeared to have the starting pitching edge over the Cubs. That edge might now tilt closer to the defending World Series champions. The Cardinals and the Cubs are tied for second in the NL Central, 5 1/2 games behind the Brewers.

John Mozeliak (right) and Mike Girsch were a long way from their current scenario during spring training in 2011 in Florida.

“It doesn’t really affect anything for us,” Girsch said. “You have to expect teams to make moves to make themselves better.” The Cubs struck first, securing a pitcher who has the potential to lead their rotation through 2020. Cardinals fans will eagerly await the Cardinals’ counter. Everybody in St. Louis has an opinion about the Cardinals’ roster. The only voices that really matter belong to Bill DeWitt Jr., Mozeliak and now Girsch. Manager Mike Matheny surely can make his requests, but the budget is above his pay grade. Matheny’s main focus should be on making sure his players give Mozeliak and Girsch reason to believe this team is worthy of making an addition at the nonwaiver trade deadline. Can the Cardinals contend this year? Do they have what it takes to surpass the Cubs and catch the Brewers? Those are the biggest questions for Mozeliak and Girsch in the next two weeks. “I’m optimistic that the team we have can play well enough to get us into the playoffs,” Girsch said. “Yeah. Now I’ve said to other people we’ve got 16 days to sort of start making that happen. At some point we have to make decisions. “We don’t get to wait until the end of the season to decide whether to add or subtract or make adjustments. I have confidence that we have a team that’s

plenty good to go on a run to win the division.” Girsch will start to provide more of a voice at this trade deadline, but it’s clear this trade deadline still belongs to Mozeliak. As assistant general manager, Girsch always knew that Mozeliak was the filter to make sure the organization never went down the wrong path. That safety net remains. Instead of bringing six different scenarios to talk through with Mozeliak, he will eventually start making more defined suggestions of what he wants to do. “Knowing that this is where this is headed, yeah that’s a lot of responsibility,” Girsch said. “This is a historic franchise that this city kind of revolves around. Having a big impact on that is both exciting and scary at the same time.” That’s when the scrutiny will intensify, though. “Again, I haven’t done anything,” he said. “So right now I’m just a cool story to talk about that. The fact I got a job by sending e-mails, I’m sort of done telling that story to people. The fact that I grew up as a Cubs fan is getting kind of old. All the media has been mostly puf pieces so far. I get that. That’s how it starts out. At some point I have to actually make decisions that people then react to.” Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

CARDINALS NOTEBOOK

WIMBLEDON

Leake heads to mound

Williams advances to inals with gutsy play

ERA leader will start Friday against Pittsburgh

The Cardinals will send their ERA leader, Mike Leake, to the mound Friday to begin the second half of the season against the Pirates. Leake will be followed in the starting rotation by Lance Lynn, Carlos Martinez, Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha. The Pirates will begin the series with Gerrit Cole on the mound. Leake will have had nine days of since his last start, which was his shortest start this season. On July 5 against Miami, Leake gave up eight runs in 32/3 innings, though only three of those runs were earned. The Cardinals hope the extra rest will allow Leake to recapture the form he displayed at the beginning of the season. Leake pitched at least six innings and allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his first nine starts of the season. This rotation will give Lynn five days of since his last start. Lynn pitched seven scoreless innings against the Mets Sunday. Carlos Martinez will also get five days’ rest after throwing two impressive innings in Tuesday’s All-Star Game, in which he struck out four. Assuming no changes are made to the rotation in the first 10 days after the break, the Cardinals will send Martinez, Wainwright and Wacha to the mound for their three-game series with the Cubs that begins July 21. Wacha, who will have had 11 days of when he makes his first start Tuesday, has allowed a total of three runs and struck out 23 batters in his last three starts.

SIEGRIST ACTIVATED FROM DL Left-handed reliever Kevin Siegrist has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and will be on the Cardinals’ active roster when the team heads to Pittsburgh on Friday. The Cardinals had previously announced that Kolten Wong would be activated from the DL and that infielder Alex Mejia and pitcher Luke Weaver would be optioned to Class AAA Memphis. That left an open spot on the active roster that figured to be filled by Siegrist. The team made the move oicial Thursday. Siegrist was placed on the 10-day DL on June 25 with a cervical spine sprain, which he said has bothered him for years. Siegrist made two appearances in a rehab assignment for Class AA Springfield last week. He allowed one hit in a scoreless inning on Friday but gave up two runs on three hits in an inning of work Sunday.

SERIES PREVIEW: CARDINALS AT PIRATES SCOUTING REPORT • Following the four-day allstar break, the Cardinals will start the second half of their season on a 10-game road trip. The irst stop is Pittsburgh, where the Cardinals will play a three-game series beginning Friday. Pittsburgh closed out the irst half of the season strong, winning ive of their last six games before the break, including a 14-3 win over the Cubs on Sunday. Overall, the Pirates sit ive games below .500, a game and a half behind the Cardinals. Former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen continues to lead the Pirates’ ofense. McCutchen was named the NL Player of the Month for June, during which he hit .411 with six home runs. He has kept up the hot hitting in July, going 13-for-33 (.394) with another three homers in eight games this month. The Pirates will open the series with Gerrit Cole on the mound. Cole’s ERA this season is the highest it has been in his ive years in the major leagues, but against the Cardinals on June 24 Cole pitched six innings and allowed one run on ive hits. The Cardinals will have second baseman Kolten Wong back in the lineup for the irst time since June 14 on Friday. Wong, who is hitting a career-best .301 this season, has missed the last month with a right triceps strain. Before that he missed 13 games with a left forearm injury. Wong’s return, however, creates a crowded inield for manager Mike Matheny. Matt Carpenter started the last seven games before the All-Star break at second base to allow Luke Voit to start at irst. Now that Wong is back, Carpenter igures to return to irst. Voit has hit .316 with three homers and ive doubles in 14 games since being called up from Class AAA Memphis. Mike Leake will start the series on the mound for the Cardinals. He will be followed in the rotation by Lance Lynn, who pitched seven shutout innings against the Mets Sunday, and Carlos Martinez, who struck out four batters in two innings during Tuesday’s All-Star Game. PROBABLE PITCHERS Friday, 6:05 p.m. RH Mike Leake (6-7, 3.12 ERA) vs. RH Gerrit Cole (7-7, 4.43) Saturday, 6:05 p.m. RH Lance Lynn (7-6, 3.61) vs. RH Chad Kuhl (3-6, 4.96) Sunday, 12:35 p.m. RH Carlos Martinez (6-8, 3.40) vs. TBA Mitchell Forde

PEREZ DEMOTED TO GULF COAST The Cardinals’ number-one draft pick last year, shortstop Delvin Perez, has been sent from shortseason Class A Johnson City to the Gulf Coast League to work on his ofense. Perez hit just eight-for-43 (.140) in 18 games with Johnson City. He did draw seven walks to boost his on-base percentage to .275, but he also struck out eight times. In two games in the Gulf Coast League, Perez has hit one-for-nine. However, Thursday he hit a double, drew a walk and plated the game-winning run with a walk-of sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning. Still wearing his Johnson City batting helmet, the 18-year-old Perez showed off his speed and instincts in the bottom of the first. After beating a pickof attempt back to the second base bag, Perez noticed that nobody was covering third. When the opposing pitcher turned his back, Perez stole the base. Cardinals farm director Gary LaRocque pointed out that Perez’s demotion is not unusual and that similar moves have benefitted players in the past. For instance, Magneuris Sierra hit .191 in 51 games with Low-A Peoria in 2015 before he was demoted to Johnson City. Sierra returned to Peoria in 2016 and hit .307. This season, Sierra made his bigleague debut. “(Perez) is going to continue to gain the consistency playing every day here,” LaRocque said while watching Thursday’s Gulf Coast League game from a golf cart. “He saw some senior pitching, college pitching (in the Appalachian League), and that was a good test. … He got an opportunity to see what the competition is like up there, and now he knows what it takes here to get to the next level beyond that.”

SCHAFER EYES RETURN Left-handed pitcher and outfielder Jordan Schafer, whom the Cardinals signed as a free agent this past ofseason, is eyeing a return to game action in August. Schafer had reconstructive surgery on his left elbow during spring training. He said that, for this season at least, he plans to return to game action only as an outfielder. Schafer was drafted as an outfielder by Atlanta in the third round in 2005. As a member of the Dodgers’ farm system last year, Schafer began pitching for the first time as a pro. Next season, the team will explore whether or not to stick with him in the outfield or use him as a part-time reliever. The Cardinals considered Schafer their fastest player and one of their best outfield defenders during spring training. He is not currently on the team’s 40-man roster, but if he proves he is healthy and productive in the minor leagues, he

EXTRA BASES The Cardinals opted not to hold a workout in St. Louis Thursday, as they have done in the past. Manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that he wanted to give players as much time as possible to be away from the game over the All-Star break. Lance Lynn threw a workout session on his own at the Cardinals’ training facility in Jupiter on Thursday. … The Red Sox released former Cardinal Jhonny Peralta Thursday. Peralta started at third base for the Cardinals on opening day, but while Peralta was on the DL with an upper respiratory infection, Jedd Gyorko seized the starting spot. The Cardinals designated Peralta for free agency on June 13, and he was signed by Boston on June 23. Peralta hit eight-for-40 in 10 games for Red Sox Class AAA ailiate Pawtucket. ... The Cardinals’ three highest draft picks this year all drove in at least two RBIs on Wednesday. Fourth-round pick Kramer Robertson hit two home runs and drove in three during a four-for-five outburst for Low-A Peoria. Fifth-rounder Zach Kirtley went two-for-four with a homer for short-season Class A State College, and his teammate, third-round pick Scott Hurst, hit a three-RBI triple.

AT A GLANCE

LONDON • All these years later,

LOOK AHEAD TO FRIDAY • Less than a month shy of 36 and bidding for a record eighth Wimbledon men’s title, Roger Federer will play in the semiinals against 2010 runner-up Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic. Federer is the only member of tennis’ Big 4 left; No. 1-seeded Andy Murray, No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Rafael Nadal are all gone. And Federer has been quite impressive. He hasn’t lost a set, while winning 63 of 66 service games. He’s made only 49 unforced errors in ive matches. In the irst semiinal, 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic of Croatia faces 24th-seeded Sam Querrey, the irst U.S. man in a Grand Slam tournament’s inal four since 2009.

Wimbledon still brings out the best in Venus Williams. With her latest display of gutsy serving and big hitting, Williams beat Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday to reach her ninth title match at the All England Club and first since 2009. At 37, Williams is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since Martina Navratilova was the 1994 runner-up at that age. Williams also stopped Konta’s bid to become the first woman from Britain in 40 years to win the country’s Grand Slam tournament. “I couldn’t have asked for more, but I’ll ask for a little more. One more win would be amazing,” Williams said. “It won’t be a given, but I’m going to give it my all.” She will be seeking her sixth Wimbledon championship and eighth Grand Slam singles trophy overall. Her most recent came in 2008, when she defeated her younger sister, Serena, for the title at the All England Club. A year later, she lost the final to Serena. In the time since, Williams revealed that she was diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, which can sap energy and cause joint pain. As time went on, there were questions about whether she might retire, especially after a half-dozen first-round losses at major tournaments. But she kept on going, and lately has returned to winning. Her resurgence began in earnest at Wimbledon a year ago, when she made it to the semifinals. Then, at the Australian Open in January, Williams reached the final, where she lost to — yes, you guessed it — her sister. Serena is off the tour for the rest of this year because she is pregnant. “I missed her so much before this match. And I was like, ‘I just wish she was here.’ And I was like, ‘I wish she could do this for me,’” Williams said with a laugh. “And I was like, ‘No, this time you have to do it for yourself.’ So here we are.” On Saturday, the 10th-seeded American will participate in her second Grand Slam final of the season, and 16th of her career, this time against 14th-seeded Garbine Muguruza of Spain. “She knows how to play, especially Wimbledon finals,” Muguruza, the 2015 Wimbledon runner-up and 2016 French Open champion, said about Williams. “It’s going to be, like, a historic final again.” Muguruza overwhelmed 87thranked Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 6-1, 6-1 in the earlier semifinal. Williams arrived in England a few weeks after being involved in a two-car accident in Florida; not long afterward, a passenger in the other vehicle died. At her initial news conference at Wimbledon, a tearful Williams left the room to compose herself after being asked about the crash. She has tried, coach David Witt said, to “just focus on the tennis.” In the semifinals, it was Konta who had the first chance to nose

THURSDAY’S RESULTS • Women’s semiinals: No. 10 Venus Williams beat No. 6 Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2; No. 14 Garbine Muguruza beat Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1. SATURDAY’S WOMEN’S FINAL • Williams vs. Muguruza. Associated Press

ahead, a point from serving from the opening set when it was 4-all and Williams was serving down 15-40. Williams erased the first break point with a backhand winner down the line, and the second with a 106 mph second serve that went right at Konta’s body. It was risky, going for so much pace on a second serve, but it worked. That opened a run in which Williams won 12 of 13 points. “She looks to dictate from the very first ball,” Konta said. “When she puts herself in a position to do that, she plays with a lot of depth, a lot of speed, and you don’t get much of a chance to get your, I guess, grip into the points.” Williams wouldn’t face another break point and, later, produced another impressive second serve — in the second set, at 103 mph, it went right at Konta, who jumped out of the way. Konta played quite well, especially early, and finished with more winners, 20 to 19, each greeted by roars from the Centre Court spectators. “They could have really been even more boisterous. I thought the crowd was so fair. And I know that they love Jo, and she gave it her all today,” Williams said. This was her 10th semifinal in 20 Wimbledon appearances; Konta had never been past the second round at the grass-court tournament before this year. In the other semifinal, Muguruza won 15 of the first 20 points en route to a 5-0 lead. “Not my best day,” Rybarikova said. “But she didn’t give me much chance to do something.” Muguruza won the point on 19 of 25 trips to the net and had a 22-8 edge in winners. That earned Muguruza, 23, a berth in her third career Grand Slam final, second at the All England Club. She lost to Serena Williams with the title on the line at Wimbledon in 2015, then beat her at Roland Garros last year.

Warner struggling to sum up career WARNER • FROM C1

all lived in the basement of Brenda’s parents’ home. She was on food stamps as she worked her way through nursing school. Kurt watched the kids in the morning, worked the overnight shift at a Hy-Vee grocery store and wedged in workouts in between as he struggled to keep his football dream alive. “(Brenda) may have put things on hold or took on diferent responsibilities that she may not have if we went a diferent direction,” Warner said. But they persevered, and Warner’s eventual emergence as league MVP and Super Bowl champion became one of the most improbable stories in NFL history. The story culminates in three weeks in Canton.

“Being up on the stage, it’s a part of so many different people that helped me to get there,” Warner said. “But she’s the one that I believe deserves to share that moment with me, and share that stage with me.” Brenda has a strong personality and wasn’t shy about speaking her mind during the Warners’ time in St. Louis. Does that make Kurt curious about what she might say on Aug. 5? “Any time that it’s your wife, you’re always wondering what they might say in public,” he said, laughing. “So you’re definitely wondering.” There will be another wife presenting for the Class of 2017. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has chosen his wife, Gene. Warner has been working on his induction speech, approach-

ing it with the diligence and effort that characterized his preparation as a player. “I have it pretty much laid out at this point, but still shaping it,” he said. “I’m excited about where it’s at. It may be a little different than what other people have done in the past. I think that’s kind of fitting.” Warner has always had the gift of gab, so one of his biggest challenges is keeping his remarks at the recommended length of 12 or 13 minutes. “To try to put your entire career (in perspective) and thank the people that you want to thank and do the speech justice, I think it’s nearly impossible,” he said.

Warner struggling to sum up career WARNER • FROM C1

all lived in the basement of Brenda’s parents’ home. She was on food stamps as she worked her way through nursing school. Kurt watched the kids in the morning, worked the overnight shift at a Hy-Vee grocery store and wedged in workouts in between as he struggled to keep his football dream alive. “(Brenda) may have put things on hold or took on diferent responsibilities that she may not have if we went a diferent direction,” Warner said. But they persevered, and Warner’s eventual emergence as league MVP and Super Bowl champion became one of the most improbable stories in NFL history. The story culminates in three weeks in Canton.

“Being up on the stage, it’s a part of so many different people that helped me to get there,” Warner said. “But she’s the one that I believe deserves to share that moment with me, and share that stage with me.” Brenda has a strong personality and wasn’t shy about speaking her mind during the Warners’ time in St. Louis. Does that make Kurt curious about what she might say on Aug. 5? “Any time that it’s your wife, you’re always wondering what they might say in public,” he said, laughing. “So you’re definitely wondering.” There will be another wife presenting for the Class of 2017. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has chosen his wife, Gene. Warner has been working on his induction speech, approach-

ing it with the diligence and effort that characterized his preparation as a player. “I have it pretty much laid out at this point, but still shaping it,” he said. “I’m excited about where it’s at. It may be a little different than what other people have done in the past. I think that’s kind of fitting.” Warner has always had the gift of gab, so one of his biggest challenges is keeping his remarks at the recommended length of 12 or 13 minutes. “To try to put your entire career (in perspective) and thank the people that you want to thank and do the speech justice, I think it’s nearly impossible,” he said.

Feng leads in rain-delayed Women’s Open Player from China has never inished better than fourth in tourney

ROUNDUP Mize rules opening round at Senior Players tourney

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEDMINSTER, N.J. • Shanshan Feng had her best round in the U.S. Women’s Open, and the first-round lead. Afternoon rain and lightning forced oicials to suspend play for more than two hours Thursday in the biggest event in women’s golf, and play was stopped because of darkness with 39 players still on the course. They will return early Friday to complete the round at Trump National Golf Course. The weather was the only hitch for the players and the USGA, which took a lot of criticism for failing to move the $5 million event to another course after comments by President Donald Trump about women. Despite fears of protests, Day 1 was uneventful. There were no demonstrators. The golf was excellent and Feng was outstanding, shooting a 6-under 66 in a tournament in which she has rarely played well in her 10 seasons as a professional in the United States. It marked the first time the 27-year-old from China broke 70 in 42 Open rounds. Amy Yang of South Korea, who has had two seconds, a third and a fourth in this event in the last five years, was a shot behind. Lydia Ko of New Zealand played in the same threesome with Feng and was tied for third at 68 with top-ranked So Yeon Ryu of South Korea. Carlota Ciganda also was 4 under with a hole left. She would have to eagle the par-5 18th to get a share of the lead. Former Open winner Cristie Kerr, who played with back spasms, and Megan Khang were the best U.S. finishers at 69. Feng, who has never finished better than fourth in the Open (2012), started her round on the 10th hole and played the back side in 5 under, rolling in five birdies. She added another at No. 1 and then parred her last eight holes. “I started the round very great,” said Feng, who lipped out on two birdie putts on her final nine. “I mean I had three birdies

Larry Mize had such a good day, even his lubbed shots ended up being efective. Mize birdied half the holes and shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday for a one-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer, Corey Pavin and Steve Flesch after the opening round of the Senior Players Championship. Seeking his second win on the PGA Tour Champions, the 58-year-old Mize was 5 under after the front nine. He made his only bogey on the par-4 10th hole, but rebounded with birdies on 14, 15 and 16. That kind of good fortune, along with a 50-foot putt for a birdie on the ninth hole, provided Mize with the second-best round of his PGA Tour Champions career.

Shanshan Feng tees of on the 13th hole in the irst round of the U.S. Women’s Open Thursday in New Jersey.

in the first four holes and then after that I mean I just felt so comfortable about everything.” Feng had to push it to get to Trump National. She played in a tournament in China that was run by her sponsor last week and her flight to Beijing was delayed. She did not arrive in New Jersey until around noon Monday, and did more sleeping than playing over the next three days. Everything worked out Thursday. “I just had a great day so hopefully the next three days that I can perform well also and let’s see what happens,” said Feng, who has a win and three other top-10 finishes this season. Feng was the hottest player on the tour at the end of last year, winning her last two starts and finishing eighth or better in her final seven events. She won the major LPGA Championship in

2012 for the first of her seven LPGA Tour titles. Yang had six birdies and a bogey in her round. She took advantage of the back nine, playing it in 4 under. The 27-year-old who now calls Orlando, Fla., home, refused to say this would be the year she won the Open. “I’ll keep trying,” she said. “I’m playing good, you know, played good lately and I’m hitting the ball solid and making some putts, you know. I’m going to do same things, you know, next three days and see what happened.” Ko, who had the lead going into the final round last year, was tied with Feng at 6 under after 13 holes. She bogeyed her 14th and then the last. Ryu, the only two-time winner on the tour this year, had four birdies. Kerr had five birdies and two bogeys.

Canada’s Brooke Henderson, ranked No. 8, and In Gee Chun, who won this event two years ago, were in a group at 70, one shot ahead of No. 3 Lexi Thompson and former No. 1 Stacy Lewis. Amateur Rachel Heck, the 15-year-old from Memphis, Tenn., who is the youngster in the field, also was at 3 under with five holes to play. Defending champion Brittany Lang had a 72 in a round where the players who teed off in the morning had the better conditions. Michelle Wie had a 73. She was bothered by neck issues in the afternoon that required treatment on the course after the delay. Second-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn shot 79, and seventhranked, two-time Open champion Inbee Park had a 77.

Schniederjans, Howell share John Deere lead • Charles Howell III and Ollie Schniederjans each shot 8-under 63 on Thursday to share the irst-round lead in the John Deere Classic. Playing alongside local favorite Zach Johnson, Howell birdied seven his irst nine and added a birdie on No. 7 in his morning round at rainsoftened TPC Deere Run. The twotime PGA Tour winner lost a playof to Kyle Stanley two weeks ago in the Quicken Loans National. The British Open is holding one spot for the leading player among the top ive not already exempt next week at Royal Birkdale. Fowler back at Scottish Open • Rickie Fowler skipped the defense of his Scottish Open title last year with a heavy heart. He began making up for lost time on Thursday. The American picked up where he left of in 2015 at the warmup event for the British Open, avoiding trouble and rolling in ive birdies at Dundonald Links to shoot a 5-under 67 in the irst round. He was in a six-way tie for second, two shots behind Mikko Ilonen. Fowler missed the 2016 tournament because of scheduling conlicts arising from the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which clogged up the goling calendar last summer. “I’m just glad to be back.” Associated Press

previous victories at the Tour de France, Chris Froome took advantage of the first big mountain stage to deliver the decisive blow. On Thursday, that tried and trusted strategy never got going, and he surrendered the overall race lead to Fabio Aru. With its mountaintop finish, the hugely demanding first stage in the Pyrenees looked like the perfect setting for his Sky Team to stamp its authority on the race, and to help Froome increase his lead in the general classification. Until near the end of the 133 mile marathon through six grueling ascents in the Pyrenees, the well-oiled Sky machine had everything under control. Froome’s teammates had set a fast tempo that prevented others from attacking — a tactic that prepared the ground for Froome’s expected assault in the steep final section leading to the finish in the ski station of Peyragudes. Froome’s move never came. Not only was he unable to attack, the British rider also cracked during the climb. Frenchman Romain Bardet won Stage 12 ahead of Rigoberto Uran and Aru, who seized the lead from Froome by six seconds. Bardet is third overall, 25 seconds off the pace. Uran was handed a 20-second penalty for accepting a water bottle in the

last five kilometers, which is not allowed, and lies in fourth place overall, 55 seconds back. When Aru launched his attack in the final few hundred meters, Froome was only able to follow the Astana team leader for a few bike lengths before he cracked. He ended up crossing the line in seventh place, 22 seconds behind Bardet. Bidding to become the first Frenchman to win the Tour since Bernard Hinault in 1985, Bardet was the strongest in the brutal incline and described his third stage win on the Tour as “an immense joy.” He said he had visited the ski station with his parents to scout out the final climb. “I knew it could suit me,” he said. “I was patient. I made the diference on the final hill. There was not much to do before that with the wind and the Sky train.” Aru had trailed Froome by 18 seconds at the start of the stage. The final of the six ascents of the stage between Pau and the ski station was too difficult for Froome, who had worn the yellow jersey over the previous seven stages. He was grimacing with the effort, his arms glistening with sweat, as he wrestled his bike up the super-steep climb that was a location for the 1997 James Bond movie “Tomorrow Never Dies.” “It’s one of the most beautiful things that can happen to you in life, wearing the yellow jersey,” said Aru. “Clearly, it won’t be easy to defend it. There are still nine more stages, we’ll do our best.”

WINDOW TREATMENTS At Prices You Can Afford Sponsored Content by Windo Van Go

“Plantation Shutters are a product you buy once and will love forever” says Julie Tolmais, owner of Windo Van Go.

Now is a great time to freshen up your decor with new window treatments that will make your room warm and inviting. There are a variety of window treatments from which to choose, each offering its own set of advantages. SHUTTERS Shutters add so much style to your room and their function is unmatched by any other window treatment. Shutters are great insulators and give owners maximum lexibility on usage. A simple tilt of the louver can control light and privacy. Plantation shutters are one of the few treatments that allow the bottom to close for privacy and leave the top open for light. Shutters come in vinyl, composite and wood. Vinyl and composite are designed to look like wood but are more maintenance free than wood and come in various whites and off whites. Wood shutters come in a variety of paint colors and many rich stains. Shutters come in 2 1/2, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 louver sizes and offer various frame styles for every window. Shutters can also be made for specialty windows such as arches, angled windows, French doors and sliders. (cont’d on Page 2) SPONSORED CONTENT

CORNICES

Continued from Page 1

Windo Van Go makes its own upholstered cornices. They are just the right amount of tailored elegance to inish your window, providing a custom, yet simple and timeless look.

PLANTATION SHUTTERS Shutters are one of Windo Van Go’s most popular products. They provide so many aspects to your window--great decor, superb insulation, lexibility of light control from room darkening to light and open. Composite/vinyl shutters come in white and off-white and are easy to clean and care for, and are more cost eficient. Wood shutters come in a variety of paints and warm stains. All of their shutters come with a variety of frame styles that work with your window.

Windo Van Go Current Promotions: Free sales tax (8% value) on all plantation shutters and free cordless lift and lock on all honeycomb shades. All promotions good until the end of July. Windo Van Go is in its 27th year of covering windows in St. Louis and prides itself in offering quality, long lasting products at affordable prices.

BLINDS Like shutters, blinds give you the lexibility to control your light with just the tilt of the louvers. Still popular and maintenance free, they come standard with a decorative valance to inish off your window and are cost friendly.

HONEYCOMB SHADES Honeycomb shades offer a soft, light look to your window and give you excellent insulation and privacy at the same time. There are many conigurations to honeycomb shades: standard raised from the bottom or a top down/bottom up gives the choice of stacking the shade at the bottom or the top or anywhere in between. These are great for bathrooms and bedrooms where many would like privacy at the bottom and openness at the top. Cordless shades are a great option to keep the cords away from the children, and motorized are great for the hard to reach windows.

CONSTRUCTION LOAN PROCESS

INTEREST RESERVE

THE INTEREST RATE GAMBLE

TYPES OF LOANS

Continued from Page 1

Lenders understand you have to have somewhere to live while your home is being built. To beneit consumers, they created interest reserves. This reserve will ultimately be added to the overall amount of your loan, but covers your interest payments for typically a 12-month period to accommodate construction time. Once the agreed-upon period ends, you will then be required to fulill your entire monthly payment.

You usually have a choice to lock your interest rate at the time of the loan or wait until construction is complete. It is crucial to pay attention to interest rates in your area if you decide to wait. If you are already aware that interest rates have been heading upward, you should automatically lock, as they will likely keep rising while your home is under construction. Some lenders may not ofer you a choice, but be sure to ask about it.

Construction loans have unique terms that difer from traditional mortgages. A one-year term means you must reinance your construction loan into a conventional mortgage loan after construction is complete. This type of loan comes with two sets of closing costs and the burden of qualifying for a second loan. A construction-to-permanent loan is very popular in construction loans. There is only one loan process and one set of closing costs.

With your credit in good shape and an estimate of your new home’s cost, seek out a lender. This is where the process difers from purchasing a preexisting home. Your lender will want to know your intentions with your home. For instance, if you plan to live in the home once construction is complete, you might have more options available than an investor who plans to resell the home upon completion.

Hazelwood (MO) ST. LOUIS COUNTY HISTORY AND LANDMARKS

SCHOOLS & PARKS

Hazelwood has several Historic landmarks located within its boundaries. The Old Elm Grove School, also known as the Little Red Schoolhouse, was relocated to Brookes Park in Hazelwood. It was built around 1852 and is said to be the earliest school building in the county. The school closed in 1952.

The residents of Hazelwood are served by the Hazelwood School District, the second largest school district in St Louis County. Hazelwood West High School is located within Hazelwood but the district has two other high schools, Hazelwood Central and Hazelwood East High Schools. The district also has 20 elementary schools and six middle schools.

Another landmark in Brookes Park is the Utz-Teson House. Alexander Stuart, a friend of Lewis and Clark, built the two-story, dog-trot style log home in the early 1800s. The home was purchased by Julius Utz in 1832, a Southern sympathizer during the Civil War.

The city of Hazelwood maintains 16 city parks, two community centers, Hazelwood Community Center and the Civic Center East, the White Birch Bay Aquatic Center and the Hazelwood Sports Complex. Some of the amenities of the parks include athletic ields, tennis courts, picnic sites and pavilions, playgrounds, horseshoe pits, walking and jogging paths, racquetball and handball courts, volleyball courts and sand courts and more. Two other unique amenities that are located in Hazelwood are the outdoor Skate/BMX Park located at the Hazelwood Community Center and the 18-hole Disc Golf Course located at White Birch Park.

The Knobbe House is also in Brookes Park. It originally was located on the site of the Village Square Shopping Center and was moved to Brookes Park in 1997. The oldest part of Knobbe House was built in 1870 by Bernard Henke. The city of Hazelwood has restored the home and adapted it for public use as ofice and public meeting space.

Dr. Zhivegas will pour out ‘Purple Rain’ at Old Rock House After selling out a pair of Prince “Purple Rain” tribute concerts in 2016, St. Louis party band Dr. Zhivegas does it again, playing the album in its entirety. Band leader Frankie Muriel says Dr. Zhivegas will play versions of the songs from a Syracuse, N.Y., concert in 1985. There have been lots of Prince tributes. What makes this one special? This is the one, in reference to the time period. We’re not trying to replicate what he was. No one can. But we can honor the songs — honor the period. That’s what we do well. Ours is truly the ’83, ’84, ’85 period, and we’re hitting the B-sides the true Prince fans will be really into. What’s the band’s approach to the songs? It’s a tribute to the music. I’m a white rocker dude. I don’t play the guitar. But we capture the spirit of the era really well. What’s your favorite part of the show? “Purple Rain” is such an amazing song. ... When everyone is singing it together, there’s something about the chord progressions and the melodies that touches everyone’s heart. BY KEVIN C.

Tribute band Killer Queen delivers ‘Christmas through rock ’n’ roll’ BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON / KJOHNSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

lassic rock band Queen managed to carry on its legacy even after the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991, with singers such as Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert in the mix. Also carrying on the band’s legacy is Killer Queen, billing itself as Europe’s top Queen tribute. “The whole thing is a party — a celebration. We’re delivering Christmas through rock ’n’ roll,” front man Patrick Myers says of his act, performing Saturday at the Family Arena. “It’s a party with the best rock ’n’ roll songs available. If you want to dance the night away, that’s what we’re about.” The original Queen — known for songs such as “Somebody to Love,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” — continues to tour, with a trek that stopped in

Kansas City this week. “We just get out there and do our best,” Myers says. “For us, the thing that means the most is the reaction we get from people who have seen Queen before. For us, that’s the crown.” But he owes his band’s success to Queen. “Queen is still in everyone’s heart,” he says. “If Queen didn’t have the quality of songs it has, this wouldn’t have lasted. They were blessed. And they weren’t just a rock band. They have a whole variety of stuf they brought to the table, and the songs are so full of emotion.” Killer Queen grew out of Mercury’s death and became oicial in 1993 with shows at the University of London. The original Queen formed while the players were students in the late 1960s. “We were all in student halls, and we got to know each other,” Myers says. “We were all into similar music and we liked good songwriting

and we all loved Queen. That was something we noticed. Then, it was suddenly announced that Freddie died.” For him it felt like a shot to the heart, he says. The friends began singing Queen songs and decided to take it a step further. “There weren’t many tribute bands in England. I think there was one going on with ABBA. But the word ‘tribute band’ wasn’t around at that time. It was an unknown thing. We said, ‘Let’s try this.’” None of the group members got the opportunity to see Queen and Mercury perform, which fueled their interest. “We were too young to have gone to Live Aid (1985). We all missed out,” Myers says. Once they got into rehearsals, they realized how tough it is to play Queen’s music. “The guitar licks, all those classic iconic rifs, that vocal range with all that power — if you want to know what’s hard about doing Queen songs, the list is endless,” Myers says. “We didn’t know how the audience would react (at its first show), but we were singing and playing the best we could. If we didn’t connect with that audience, it would have been over. But it went really well and within a week we were booked all over the U.K. ”We even got booked in the West End, which is the Broadway of London.”

Start your engines Jeferson County Fair brings feats of strength and high-octane entertainment BY WES JENKINS / WJENKINS@POST-DISPATCH.COM

D

oug Noelke doesn’t fall for superstitions. “I don’t wear any special socks or anything,” he says, laughing at the implication of a prerace ritual. After 17 years behind the wheel of a monster truck, either racing them or driving them over other lesser cars, Noelke doesn’t need luck to feel comfortable behind the wheel. On July 23, Noelke will drive TailGator as part of the Jeferson County Fair’s Monster Truck rally, the closing performance for the four-day event.

The 73rd annual Jeferson County Fair will ofer much more than just monster trucks, though. Lawn mower racing, truck and tractor pulls, Ted Nugent, competitive eating and traditional carnival activities will also highlight the event. The fair kicks of at 5 p.m. Thursday, with the Jefco MX Classic revving its engines at 7 p.m. The event, sponsored by Surdyke Motorsports, comprises 3½ hours of constant racing, “actionpacked from start to finish” in the words of Surdyke marketing director Adam Riley.

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 07.14.17-07.20.17

It’s the fourth year that Surdyke has put on the motocross classic, and Riley says it’s an opportunity for anyone into the sport to get out and race. The track is a bit smaller but still consists of standard motocross track features, including tabletops, 180-degree banks and more. “It’s everything you would expect from a full-size motocross track, just on a smaller scale,” Riley says. Surdyke partners with Archview MX Park to put together the track and stage dozens of races. This year, 18 classes of racing are ofered. Riley expects the 250cc open class to be the most competitive, but fairgoers shouldn’t ignore the lower cc’s. He says the 50cc races with kids as young as 4 years old are some of the most entertaining. July 21 boasts the fair’s centerpiece,

with Nugent taking the main stage at 9 p.m. Nugent, known as much for his political stances as for his rock hits such as “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Stranglehold,” has garnered a fair amount of blowback and support on the fair’s Facebook page. Scotty Bratcher will both open and close for Nugent, and his specific brand of blues-rock should bookend nicely with the harder nature of Nugent’s sound. By July 22, the fair will have hit its full stride, moving from hard rock and racing to fundamental feats of will. The afternoon brings first a chicken wing-eating competition sponsored by Saucy’s Pizzeria and second a truck and tractor pull before closing with a performance by Missouri-born country artist Phil Vandel. According to Tom Keightley, coowner of Saucy’s with partner Shannon Crews, the wing eating will consist of two heats — mild and hot. The first is just “a traditional bufalo sauce” while the second, covered in Saucy’s habanero-based Double Dragon Spicy sauce, ofers a bit more diiculty. Challengers shouldn’t read too much into the hot sauce’s name, as it lacks a definitive origin story — “I’m just creative, I guess,” Keightley says with a laugh. Each heat will consist of 10 challengers and a dozen wings — whoever finishes first takes the prize. On the final day, July 23, the fair returns to its engine-revving tricks, albeit on highly varied scales. Kids Day, with many kid-friendly activities from 2 to 5 p.m., gives way to Noelke and his monster trucks at 6 p.m. Between the various monster truck stunts are lawn mower races.

s there any better end to a lazy summer day than a picnic at a park, watching the sunset with friends and a bottle of wine? The heat slowly trickles elsewhere, and the disappearing sun causes yellows and oranges to dissolve into purples and pinks before nighttime settles in. The park provides its own scenery, but usually we provide a bottle of Two Buck Chuck and maybe some pretzel chips. It doesn’t have to be this way. The St. Louis area has myriad parks, each providing distinctive scenery and entertaining events. Each park carries its own personality, its own emotions and its own end-ofday summer vibes. So why not pair your favorite park with

the perfect wine, enhancing every part of the experience? Andrey Ivanov, resident advanced sommelier at Reeds American Table, lives to pair wine, and not just with food. He uses emotion and mood to “paint the picture of the moment” and then pick a wine that’s appropriate. “Without proper context, (wine) is just rotten grape juice,” Ivanov says. “But if you humanize it, then it becomes something a little bit more. And the goal we always look for is to add something to the experience, not take over.” So add a little something to your park adventures, either by grabbing a bottle of Ivanov’s expert recommendations or our cheaper options. Either way, the rotten grape juice will fit the mood, making your St. Louis park hopping all the better. ➼

With a rotating cast of more than 20 food trucks, the description aptly captures the desire to sample everything, from savory barbecue to decadent cupcakes. As such, diners need a tart wine — something that can cut through the food’s richness. Ivanov’s Austrian suggestion does just that, smelling of fresh blueberries but with enough body to still be a really delicious red wine.

The Museum of the Dog plans to pack up its bones and head to New York in the not-toodistant future, so the time is now to explore its thousands of pieces of dog art. For pairing, Ivanov partially forewent taste and prioritized sentimentality, choosing a winery that bottles its products with a picture of a dog. The sauvignon blanc depicts man’s best friend on his hind legs and playing a trumpet — just one more artistic rendering to appreciate before or after the museum. Also, Ivanov says, the wine’s price shouldn’t be a deterrent because it’s unlike any other sauvignon blanc you’ll ever taste: “You can sit there and come back every five minutes and it smells like something totally diferent.” It’s basically the wine equivalent of the bush your dog passes every day but still feels the need to snif extensively. And yes, the museum is dog-friendly.

On its face, biking and drinking wine sounds like a terrible proposition. Physical activity and alcohol rarely make a good combo. But the Rubentis, Ivanov’s wine of choice, might just bridge the gap, ofering “a wine that is inherently summertime.” A rosé with a bit of CO2 injected for a refreshing spritz, the Rubentis smells of strawberries and sea salt and comes in a screwtop bottle, making a moonlight bike ride with plenty of stops not only feasible but also enjoyable.

The magical dusky hour may have faded away, but there’s often nothing more relaxing than a concert under the stars. Ivanov recommends a classic pinot noir to pair with the night — a little bit richer now that the sun is down but still easygoing, juicy and delicious.

“War for the Planet of the Apes”

Ape evolution ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ spins a tale that is not just thrilling but also soulful ★★★★ BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN / WASHINGTON POST

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

T

he best thing about the rebooted “Planet of the Apes” film series has always been the apes. Impressive on a technical level and a dramatic one, these motioncapture creatures — representing intelligent, even soulful chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and bonobos — outshine their human counterparts in terms of emotional connection with the audience. They may not be people, but they are, in every sense of the word, fully rounded characters. The title of the newest installment in the durable franchise, “War for the Planet of the Apes,” is something of a misnomer. Although set 15 years after

the science experiment that first gave rise to smart, talking apes — and at the height of hostilities between these intellectually advanced animals and the more brutish of the people who would subjugate them — “War” includes fewer scenes of pitched battle than moments of quiet contemplation and conversation. (Note: Not all of the apes actually speak here; many still communicate using graceful sign language. In a parallel development, several humans have come to lose the ability to talk — the result of a virus known as the Simian Flu.) All this is explained, for newcomers to the saga, in a short preamble to the action of the new film, which

Find more reviews, theaters and movie news ➙ stltoday.com/movies

begins with the apes ensconced in their fortified encampment in the deep woods of Northern California. Although the apes just want to be left alone, and there is a contingent of humans who are inclined to leave them in peace, there is an incursion by renegade human commandos — led by a bloodthirsty oicer known only as the Colonel (Woody Harrelson) — that kills some of the family members of the apes’ broodingly charismatic leader Caesar, a chimpanzee played by the great Andy Serkis, whose expressive, guttural vocal performance and mimelike physicality anchors the film. This, of course, triggers a vendetta between Caesar and the Colonel, whose troops subsequently round up and imprison many of the apes, for slave labor, just as they are moving camp to avoid further attacks. Among those captured: Caesar and his only surviving son, the infant Cornelius (Devyn Dalton).

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

With Caesar out of the action, though not out of commission — despite being tied, seething, to a wooden structure that lends him the silhouette of a crucified, simian Jesus — the story shifts to the small band of apes still at large, plus a couple of newcomers. This group includes, in addition to the wonderfully wise elder Maurice the orangutan (Karin Konoval, a veteran of the previous two films), a little orphaned human girl who can’t speak (Amiah Miller) and a talkative yet wryly doleful zooescapee chimp who introduces himself only as Bad Ape. In this last role, Steve Zahn delivers a memorable turn, transcending a part that might otherwise have been used for little more than comic relief and leaving viewers with a sense of genuine compassion. Though much of this connection can be attributed to the actors — and CGI wizards — who give life to these nonhuman characters, kudos is also due to the storytelling skills of director and co-writer Matt Reeves (“Let Me In”), who did such a fine job with the previous “Apes” film. Along with returning writer Mark Bomback, Reeves spins a gripping, visually stunning and emotionally complex tale of otherness — one that examines, against its us-vs.them subtext, not just what it means to be human, but also humane. “War for the Planet of the Apes” may have the body of an action film, but it has the soul of an art-house drama and the brains of a political thriller.

Brilliant portrait Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke star in ‘Maudie,’ a beautiful ilm based on an artist’s life ★★★½ BY CALVIN WILSON / CALVINWILSON@POST-DISPATCH.COM

audie (Sally Hawkins) is stuck in a situation that rivals the grimmest of fairy tales. Her moneygrubbing brother Charles (Zachary Bennett) has sold the family home, forcing her to live with their strict and unforgiving Aunt Ida (Gabrielle Rose). And it doesn’t help that Maudie sufers from arthritis.

M 18

But she refuses to let that get her down, occasionally staying out late in a jazz club and generally taking an upbeat view of life. That doesn’t sit well with Aunt Ida, and it’s obvious that Maudie needs to find somewhere else to live. Unfortunately, in a small Nova Scotia community in the late 1930s, her options are limited. Hope emerges in the unlikely form of Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke), a mis-

anthropic fish merchant in need of a housekeeper. Everett isn’t particularly enthusiastic when Maudie answers his ad, but her sheer persistence wears him down. Still, he makes it clear that as far as he’s concerned she ranks behind his dogs and chickens. Maudie isn’t much good at housekeeping, but she discovers that she’s a painter of considerable talent. It’s not long before her new home is something of a museum — and Everett has become far more to her than an employer. Based on the true story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis, “Maudie” is a beautiful film about creativity, perseverance and the redemptive power of love. Working from a screenplay by

Sherry White, director Aisling Walsh delivers a film as painterly and plainspoken as the artist who inspired it. The measured pacing and rich sense of atmosphere go a long way toward immersing us in Maudie’s world. Hawkins, who is perhaps best known for her breakout performance in “Happy-Go-Lucky” (2008), is simply magnificent as the socially challenged but fiercely determined Maudie. And Hawke is a revelation, getting to the essence of Everett’s malaise and embracing his struggle to realize his best self. “Maudie” is a work of art.

‘Wish Upon’ has too few scares and too many giggles ★ BY KATIE WALSH / TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

hat to make of the ridiculous horror-lite “Wish Upon”? This is a spooky teen story that’s not particularly heavy on the scares but overdelivers on the unintentional giggles, almost ensuring it a spot as a cult movie. Written by Barbara Marshall and directed by John R. Leonetti (“Annabelle”), “Wish Upon” plays on the haunted-object premise, with a mysterious Chinese wish box wreaking havoc on the life of Clare (Joey King), who can’t stop making wishes, even as her loved ones drop dead around her. Young Clare has had a hard life. Her mother (Elizabeth Rohm), as we see in a prologue, committed suicide, and things haven’t been easy since then. Her dad (Ryan Phillippe) dumpster dives

for scrap metal, and Clare is a bit of a misit at school, a target of violent, crazy outbursts from the local mean girl. When Dad brings home a discarded treasure — a mysterious box engraved with Chinese characters — Clare facetiously uses it to wish ill upon her enemy. When her wish comes true, gruesomely, Clare keeps wishing for things like popularity, love and money. Later, she claims that she just wanted to feel “normal,” though it’s unclear how she wasn’t normal before, and how becoming wealthy and popular overnight somehow is “normal.” Things would be ideal if all these people around her weren’t meeting untimely deaths in unlucky circumstances. But by the time Clare gets the ancient Chinese characters translated,

the box has turned her into its Gollum. “Wish Upon” is an odd horror ilm, because the monster is also our heroine. It’s not like the box itself is all that terrifyingly compelling; the worst thing about it is the way it transforms its owners. So even though Clare willingly endangers her friends and family because she wants to keep making out with the popular guy, we have to keep rooting for her. “Wish Upon” isn’t overthe-top wacky or campy, and at times it feels a bit low-energy. But it’s the kind of simple ilmmaking coupled with absolutely insane writing and plot points that make it an ideal candidate for sobad-it’s-good viewing. “Wish Upon” is an entirely harmless, defanged horror lick for the younger set. It’s never too scary, but it is pretty darn funny. WHAT “Wish Upon” • RUN TIME 1:30 • RATING PG-13 • CONTENT Violent and

And now, at 4 Hands Brewing Co., you can dip a soft pretzel into a blue-crab dip sumptuously creamy not with the expected (and, to be honest, dreaded) mayonnaise, but brie. No, I won’t share. Late this winter, 4 Hands turned its tasting-room menu over to Kevin Nashan, the James Beard Award-winning chef and owner of Sidney Street Cafe and Peacemaker Lobster & Crab Co. Nashan and Peacemaker chef de cuisine John Messbarger have designed a small counter-service menu drawing mainly from Peacemaker’s fare: peel-and-eat shrimp, mussels, the as-good-as-Peacemaker’s-seafood brisket po’boy. Exclusive to 4 Hands is a sandwich with luscious roasted pork topped with smoked gouda, sauerkraut and a cherry-stout mustard. Though obviously not seafood, it’s an example of the approach that has made Peacemaker such a success: not overly fussed with, not over-the-top, just the exactly right ingredients in the exactly right proportions with the exactly right accents.

The mussels at 4 Hands are served in a smoky tomato-bacon-shallot broth that I eagerly sopped up with the accompanying slices of grilled bread. I did encounter one glitch, however: a few unopened mussels. Here’s another reason to salute quality brewpub cuisine. An excellent beer is always at hand to soothe the occasional irritation.

CARIBBEAN DELIGHT

Caribbean Delight, which opened in September by the intersection of Gravois Avenue and South Grand Boulevard, is as skeletal a restaurant as you’ll find in town. Its single room features an ordering window at the far end, a few tables around the perimeter and a big empty space in the middle. You’ll probably get your food to go — it’s served in a to-go container regardless — but get it you should. At Caribbean Delight, owner and chef Chrisanna Little is serving traditional dishes from her native Jamaica. As she told me during a phone interview, these are the recipes that have been passed down to her. “This is basically how they’re cooked,” she said. There is jerk chicken, of course,

grilled outside the restaurant, chopped into pieces and served over rice. The char-kissed chicken is appropriately spicy, but the real heat comes from the gravy ladled over the rice. Many of the other dishes on Caribbean Delight’s menu Little stews — and stews and stews. “They cook for a really, really long time,” she told me. These include oxtails, their abundant meat not quite falling of the bone but yielding easily to your plastic to-go fork. A definite but not searing heat tinges the rich beef flavor. A clear standout is the goat curry, the tender meat’s strong natural flavor sharply accented by chiles but also enrobed by more complex, warming curry spices. Your order should probably include a traditional Jamaican beef patty, an empanada-esque hand pie (though the patty’s shell is larger and softer) with spicy minced beef. An important caveat: Caribbean Delight is cash-only. Not a caveat, though maybe an invitation: Every other weekend, Little said, Caribbean Delight stays open later than usual and plays music. That big empty space in the middle of the room might come in handy then.

ON TV

“(Trump) mistook the president of Singapore for the president of Indonesia. ... His previous international experience was the Miss Universe pageant, and I’m sure he’d be able to identify all the leaders if they would just wear their damn sashes.” STEPHEN COLBERT on “The Late Show” ST

Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) tries to avoid ruining a dinner party after getting shocking news in HBO’s “Big Little Lies.”

Going for the gut Tube Talk Characters on TV this season

are getting it all out of their systems

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

PHOTO: HBO

If you have a weak stomach, perhaps it’s best to keep a barf bag at hand when watching TV these days. Everyone, it seems, is throwing up. And although dramas are the worst ofenders, don’t count comedies out either. It’s true that in real life, almost everyone falls victim to a stomach bug or bad sushi from time to time. Most of us rush to close the bathroom door. But television has taken upset stomachs to the extreme. There’s no telling when someone will vomit, publicly and graphically. Not much has been of-limits on TV in recent years, certainly not body functions (or fluids). Extreme elements stltoday.com/tubetalk

@gailpennington

are one way to get an audience’s attention at a time when there’s way too much to watch. Most viewers have long since grown numb to bloodshed, with hospital shows going in close on surgery and cop shows zeroing in on the aftermath of violence. Blood has been shed in buckets on shows from Cinemax’s “The Knick” to HBO’s “Game of Thrones” to possibly TV’s bloodiest, Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead.” Upping the gross-out ante, “The Strain,” beginning its fourth and final season at 9 p.m. Sunday on FX, set out to be TV’s greatest purveyor of gore and arguably succeeded, thanks to horror master Guillermo del Toro. Billboards plastered with huge images of a worm burrowing into an eyeball provided a public service by @tubetalkpd

warning of the faint of heart. But blood was just a start in the body-fluid sweepstakes. Remember when a shocking scene in “All in the Family” featured an of-camera flush? Jack Bauer may have spent most of a decade on Fox’s “24” without ever once looking for a toilet, but characters now regularly and audibly relieve themselves, and viewers often join them in the bathroom. FX’s “Fargo” and Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” took urination to a saturation point this season. “Fargo” seemed particularly obsessed. As Ray Stussy, Ewan McGregor worked as a parole oicer. Charged with obtaining urine samples, he was required to watch as the samples were produced and handle the drippy cups in a montage in the season premiere. Urine and toilets also figured in many more scenes, at least one (that mug incident!) too gross to discuss here. On “Twin Peaks,” urination has more often been played for laughs, with Dale Cooper (Kyle McLachlan), or whoever he was at the moment, not quite understanding bathrooms and “holding it” far too long, then sighing in relief as his stream was heard. I’ve hedged as long as I can before delving into TV’s epidemic of vomit. Exit now if you must. We’ve seen barfing before; a hungover Roger Sterling (John Slattery) threw up several times on AMC’s “Mad Men.” (For that matter, “Mad Men” also featured a urination mishap.) Cast members on both “The Amazing Race” and “Survivor” have upchucked relatively discreetly.

“Trump and Putin talked about teaming up to form a cybersecurity unit. … Think of the time it’ll save! They already know our passwords, so why not?” JIMMY KIMMEL on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

But so many TV characters in the last year or so have vomited so impressively that even viewers who tend to avert their eyes from disgusting scenes have noticed. Consider Madeline Martha McKenzie, played by Reese Witherspoon in HBO’s “Big Little Lies.” After bad news is delivered at a dinner party, she projectile vomits all over the table, even striking a guest with a shrimp. Hannah’s mother (Becky Ann Baker) pukes in a restaurant on “Girls.” In Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why,” after young Clay (Dylan Minnette) is pressured to drink far too much beer, he vomits it all onto his parents’ table. Also on Netflix, Drew Barrymore’s real estate agent Sheila is showing a house when she vomits everywhere (no, really, everywhere) in the incident that leaves her changed forever. But again, “Fargo” and “Twin Peaks” had the highest “urp” quotient this season. “Fargo” featured David Thewlis as Varga, a villain who vomited up his meals. A poisoning victim vomited in the throes of death. A yellow hotel toilet even became a pivotal “Fargo” locale. On “Twin Peaks,” the transition between “Dale Cooper” and “Mr. C.,” or Evil Dale, brought on two incidents of vomiting, one of which produced an odor so toxic that it sent a sherif to the hospital. Extreme vomiting is as attentiongetting as it is disgusting. After this season, though, writers may realize their characters have already been there and puked that. If the trend has to continue, at least somebody close the bathroom door.

CAR’S START-UP PROBLEM MAY BE AS SIMPLE AS A LOOSE CONNECTION

CAR TALK By Ray Magliozzi - Automotive Writer

Dear Car Talk: “Our 2007 Mazda CX-7 recently had its steering pump lock up and burn out the belt. The belt and pump were replaced, but a week later, the car is starting strangely: When we turn the key, there is a loud and fast clicking sound from the driver’s side under the hood and the engine doesn’t even attempt to turn over. After a few tries (about 25 seconds’ worth sometimes), the starter will engage, turn over the engine and the car starts right up. However, while we drive, various warning lights f licker on and off, like the traction-control system and airbag lights. What is happening that causes the clicking sound? Is it the starter solenoid failing to actuate the starter motor? Or is it something in the electrical system, and my mechanic didn’t do a thorough enough check?” — Benjamin

Or the whole thing could be explained by your mechanic’s failure to tighten the battery terminal. If he removed the negative terminal from the battery to disconnect the power before doing the repair and then forgot to retighten it, that would explain everything. A loose connection would explain why the starter can’t get enough juice sometimes, but then eventually starts right up. It would explain why lights on your dashboard are coming on and off — as you drive around, the terminal clamp jostles around as you go over bumps.

as simple as a bad connection at the battery. You need to take it back to these guys and have

When you hear a rapid clicking noise, Benjamin, it’s usually because the starter motor isn’t getting enough current from the battery. You’re hearing the starter motor’s solenoid trying to engage but failing to.

them do a complete test of your charging system. That would include testing the alternator output and load-testing the battery. Could it be related to steering pump failure? It’s possible. If the belt got really chewed up, some debris could have gotten into the alternator and caused it to fail. But it also could be coincidence. If the battery is on the edge of failing, that could just be due to old age.

So, it could be a failing battery; it could be a bad alternator that isn’t properly recharging the battery; or it could be something

And best of all, it would cost nothing to fix. Unless you count the price of embarrassment your mechanic will experience. So ask him to check that first, Benjamin.

HOW TO BUY A MOTORCYCLE Content and photo by Green Shoot Media

Buying a new or used motorcycle is essentially like buying a car. You can expect to go through negotiations and test drives before signing your name on the inal papers. But before you take your next motorcycle off the lot, you’ll need to ask yourself some questions about what you’re looking in your new bike. First of all, where will you be doing most of your riding? If you ind yourself most frequently on the highway, a heavier motorcycle that can stand up well against passing semis may be for you. Other points to consider include whether or not you’ll be carrying passengers and what types of features you’d like to add. Speak to other riders to ind out the pros and cons of different styles before choosing your next bike.

DON’T FORGET THE TEST DRIVE Even if this isn’t your irst motorcycle purchase, one of the most important aspects of the transaction process is taking a test drive. Consider these key indicators when trying to make your inal decision: • Your feet can easily touch the ground while you’re seated. • The seat is comfortable. • The motorcycle is easy to stop, accelerate and slow down. • The bike smoothly handles corners. Buying used from an individual requires extra diligence on your part. Be sure to carefully inspect the condition of the bike and all of its key parts, including tires, brakes and turn signals. Also ask for any documented mechanical issues from the past, as well as any maintenance records.

BE STREET LEGAL Just like a car purchase, you will be required to title and register your new motorcycle before hitting the road. This involves completing the registration process with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. Professional dealers will help you complete the necessary paperwork.

RIDES MAGAZINE

stltoday.com/RIDES

If you’re buying used from an individual, you will be required to initiate contact with your local DMV to coordinate the paperwork. Always be wary of an individual seller who cannot provide you a copy of the title and registration. This could be a signal that the bike is stolen, so consider taking your business elsewhere.

An eight-card fit, two pure tricks in clubs, and the possibility of a heart ruf made it a worthwhile gamble. South won the opening diamond lead in his hand perforce and took time to plan his play. A successful trump finesse would see him home, but that was only a 50 percent chance. South thought he could do better by trying to ruf a heart in dummy. Leading a heart from his hand wouldn’t work, as East would be able to gain the lead twice for trump plays. South crossed to dummy

at trick two with the ace of clubs and led a heart. Had East played low, declarer would have put up the queen. This would assure the contract, with normal splits, as the defense would not be able to lead trumps twice without giving up their queen. East, however, unerringly rose with his ace to lead a trump. South won with his ace and crossed back to dummy with the king of clubs to lead another heart. Should East hold the king, the queen of hearts would be the tenth trick. The queen lost to West’s king. West might have tried a low spade, hoping his partner held the jack, but he led another diamond, instead. The heavy lifting was all done. South won the diamond in his hand and took the hardearned heart ruff in dummy. Declarer still had to give the defense a trick with the queen of trumps, but the contract was home safe. Nicely played!

DEAR ABBY

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

Man answers wife’s feelings with shouts

Dear Lost • Your husband may have reacted the way he did out

of guilt. If you haven’t already, tell him that no one has ever spoken to you the way he did and that it terrified you. Tell him that when someone acts that way, the natural conclusion of the person being bullied (which is what he was doing) is to fear the verbal attack will escalate to physical violence. If he can’t explain calmly why he overreacted when you said you were hurt, then the two of you could use some sessions with a marriage counselor. If he refuses to go, go without him. Dear Abby • Years before my dad passed away, he started keeping a notebook he called “Jack’s Doomsday Book.” In it he listed account numbers and balances, names of banks, passwords, locations of documents and other detailed instructions on how to take over his responsibilities if he was incapacitated. He always told Mom and me that if something happened, to find that notebook in which everything was written down. Mom died first, so when Dad

became ill years later, he made sure I had the notebook. I can’t tell you how much easier it made things. I didn’t have to go searching through paperwork to figure out what was what. I knew the banks I had to go to and what to bring. It was all there, down to the changes he had made after Mom passed. Even our financial adviser was impressed at how easy Dad made everything for us. Everyone should have a doomsday book. — JACK’S GIRL IN LOUISIANA Dear Jack’s Girl • I couldn’t agree more. I admire your father’s pragmatism. Too many adults fail to plan ahead for this kind of inevitability, which causes additional problems for survivors at a time when they are trying to cope with their grief. Readers, if you haven’t already done something similar, you should consider it. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Diferences: 1. Names are reversed. 2. Map is diferent. 3. Chair is not showing. 4. Arm is longer. 5. Hair is diferent. 6. Hat is diferent.

Dear Abby • I have been married for two years, and my husband has three grown children. He was recently planning a getaway with the youngest and included me in the plans. I didn’t want to interfere and suggested that his child might want to spend some one-on-one time with him. I later learned that not only were his other kids going, but their spouses were as well. Everyone was included but me. I felt very hurt to be excluded. When I shared with him how I felt, his response was that he couldn’t control his kids, but I feel he could have controlled his response. To exclude me was deliberate. When I told him how hurt I was, he got less than an inch from my face and started screaming about MY kids (who love him like a father). It scared me because he was in my face. I have never had a man scream in my face like that before. I was truly terrified. — LOST IN THE EAST

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Water onstage? It’s up to the performer

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

Dear Miss Manners • I am primarily a classical musician, but I dabble in other styles of music, as well. In my 10 years of playing professionally, I’ve noticed it becoming more common for musicians to bring bottles of water onstage with them during a concert. This is especially true of nonclassical concerts, but I occasionally see it in classical settings, as well. Whenever I see this, I am reminded of my late former teacher complaining about seeing a jazz concert in which the performers had bottles of water onstage with them. He felt it disrupted the performance. On the other hand, I have many times felt that as a wind instrumentalist, my performance would benefit from being able to drink water as needed during a concert. Which is more important: ambiance, or hydrated performers?

Gentle Reader • Deceptively neutral as your question is, Miss Manners is quite aware that any suggestion on her part that aesthetics are relevant to art would be met with accusations either that she is indiferent to the health of performers or that she is putting visual appearance before musical quality. It would do her no good to point out that performers, like other mortals, are subject to fads, or that their track record, where medical matters are concerned, is not impressive. Witness the sleeping, not to mention pharmaceutical, habits of some wellknown musicians. As the question really is more one of aesthetics than etiquette, Miss Manners leaves it up to the individual performer to determine the appropriate trade-off between actions that make performance easier and those that may put of audience members.

7/14/17

Dear Miss Manners • I know you wear black to a funeral. But I find these days that many bereaved families prefer to hold small, formal, private funerals, followed some time later by a “celebration of life” that is somewhat more festive. I went to one recently at a beach club loved by the deceased. What to wear? I wore a black dress with a colorful floral print to the beach club event, and my sister — who wore all black — scolded me.

hyroid cancer diagnosis requires a sample FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • Recently, I underwent a needle biopsy of a thyroid nodule. The cytology report reads “suspicious for Hurthle cell neoplasm (Bethesda Category IV).” I have an appointment with a surgeon for a more definitive diagnosis. Is this already cancer? If so, how can my thyroid bloodwork be within normal limits? — M.P.

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • I am sorry to hear about this. Hurthle cell carcinoma is a specific type of thyroid cancer; however, a cytology report from a needle biopsy is not a definitive diagnosis. A needle biopsy provides cells, not their architecture, and the pathologist reading the cytology is making a best guess based on the material. Definitive diagnosis comes from looking at a tissue biopsy. However, the cytology report is concerning. In a large series, about 15 to 30 percent of Bethesda category IV cytology findings turn out to be cancer, and surgery is usually recommended. Your surgeon will evaluate all the information, including an ultrasound (and possibly a PET or CT) scan, and may want to remove a lobe or the thyroid entirely. Hurthle cell tumors tend to be more aggressive and can be harder to identify with a thyroid scan. The usual thyroid blood tests, such as TSH, T4 and free thyroxine index, do not diagnose cancer; they measure the amount of thyroid hormone in the blood. Most thyroid cancers do not make thyroid hormone, but the rest of the thyroid is able to make normal hormone. Thyroid cancer is usually diagnosed when someone notices a mass in the neck.

Dear Dr. Roach • I am a 52-year-old female in good health; however, for about the past seven to eight months, I have been bothered by swelling and stiffness in my hands, especially while sleeping. The swelling is not in the joint itself but rather in the fleshy tissues between the second joint and my palms. I wake up during the night with discomfort. To date, I have had bloodwork and a connective tissue cascade. All of these tests came back normal or negative. My doctor has recommended an EMG test of both forearms, but I’m not convinced that this will be helpful. I tried five cryotherapy sessions in 10 days, and had only slight improvement. — D.A.

MARK TRAIL • By James Allen

Answer • The location of the swelling you are describing is suspicious for synovitis. The synovium is the tissue around a joint that makes the joint fluid. It is not normally able to be felt. Inflammation in the synovium makes me concerned for inflammatory arthritis. I would strongly recommend you see a rheumatologist.
