WA S H I N GTO N • President Donald Trump overhauled his White House on Friday in a dramatic shake-up of his senior team at the six-month mark of his presidency, which so far has been beset by a special counsel’s widening Russia investigation, a floundering legislative agenda and seemingly constant chaos and infighting within his West Wing. Trump’s decision Friday morning to install wealthy financier Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director set off an unexpected chain reaction, with White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigning in protest, according to people familiar with the departures. By afternoon, Spicer’s deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, had been named to reSee SPICER • Page A5

ST. LOUIS • With scorching tempera-

tures expected to reach well over 100 degrees this weekend, protesters are again demanding closure of the city’s mediumsecurity jail, which doesn’t have air conditioning. Police used pepper spray to disperse a crowd who had protested for about two hours outside the workhouse Friday night. The spraying came just minutes after officers ordered the crowd to leave. Those hit with the pepper spray had been among a diverse group of about 150 demonstrators, some of whom held signs with slogans that included “We treat animals better.” State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, joined them. At one point, several protesters climbed under an exterior chain-link fence around the workhouse and a few scaled a second

Sign claiming bias by city gets action to settle inspection spat Pictured is the sign that had been displayed at Sheesh, a Turkish restaurant on the South Grand Boulevard strip

JOE HOLLEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

FOOD TYPE • The sign outside the restaurant didn’t pull any punches, until the owners pulled it down. Sheesh, a Turkish restaurant at 3226 South Grand Boulevard, had for several days been sporting a large sign outside of its business that quickly and widely made the rounds on social media. The sign implied that they had faced bigotry from a St. Louis building inspector. It read: “City Hall told us to ‘go back to our country’ when inspecting business for opening. We need help.” Sheesh opened in 2015 and is owned by Safa Marmarchi and some relatives, refugees from Iraq, via Turkey. Recently, they have been renovating a vacant business adjacent to their restaurant and plan to expand. Now, the dispute seems to have been solved — with all involved commenting about it only reluctantly. Restaurant manager Zaenab Marmarchi, the sister of Safa Marmarchi, said the dispute revolved around work that city inspectors wanted done on the expansion project. She said the sign was taken down Wednesday after a meeting at the restaurant with city Building Commissioner Frank Oswald that resolved the dispute. But she declined to discuss what specific incident prompted the sign. Oswald said he brought an interpreter to the Wednesday meeting. He said the problem revolved around what permits had been issued. “I think there was a little problem with the language barrier, and there also was some ‘he said, she said’ that contributed to the misunderstanding,” Oswald said in a phone interview. “But we want them there. After the meeting was done, we all shook hands and it’s all worked out.” Sheesh was ranked in 2016 by the PostDispatch as one of the area’s best new restaurants and now is included in the PD’s “STL 100” of best places to eat.

Too late to say ‘Sorry’? Bieber can’t perform in China China’s capital says it won’t be inviting Justin Bieber to perform in the country because of his past “bad behavior,” although it did concede that the Canadian singer has talent. In response to a question from a purported fan on its webpage, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture said it was acting in the interest of imposing standards and order and “cleaning up” the domestic performance market. It said Bieber’s “bad behavior,” including in his private life abroad and while in China to perform, had caused “public dissatisfaction.” It did not provide details. Bieber, whose hits include “Sorry” and “Baby,” performed in Beijing, Shanghai and the eastern city of Dalian in 2013. Linkin Park singer’s suicide confirmed • The Los Angeles County coroner confirmed Friday that Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington died by hanging. Coroner’s office spokesman Ed Winter says the rocker, 41, hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles. Bennington was found dead Thursday. Winter says a half-empty bottle of alcohol was found in the room, but no drugs were evident. Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. A suicide note was not found. An autopsy has not yet been scheduled. Bennington was one of two lead vocalists for Linkin Park, which became one of the most commercially successful acts of the 2000s. The group won countless awards, including Grammys, and their hits include “In the End,” “What I’ve Done” and “Numb.”

DIGEST KIRKWOOD > City to count deer population • Kirkwood is planning to do a deer population count as early as October. The city is developing a scope of services for the effort and so hasn’t yet gotten a cost estimate, Chief Administrative Officer Russell Hawes said at the Kirkwood City Council meeting Thursday night. “We’re going to procure a firm to conduct an inventory of the deer population, to determine to what extent problems exists,” he said. During public comment, David Anderson, who lives on Taylor Young Drive, said that he had recently had his yard treated to repel deer but he continues to find evidence of their grazing. “The best suggestion would be for me to install a tall fence, but my subdivision won’t allow that,” he said. Anderson praised Town & Country for their actions to cull and sterilize individuals in deer herds.

“They recently reduced the minimum number of acres for hunting from five to two,” he said, adding that more than 200 deer were harvested by hunters last year and about the same number so far this year in Town & Country. (Special to the PostDispatch) MARYLAND HEIGHTS > Planning contracts approved for development project • The Maryland Heights City Council approved on Thursday night more than $500,000 in planning contracts for the Maryland Park Lake District. The contracts, made with H. R. Green and H3Studio, will focus on the city’s infrastructure needs as well as stormwater control, beyond that provided by the Howard Bend Levee for the Missouri River. More approvals are expected next month as the district develops and gets closer to being able to entertain private development proposals.

Already in early-stage development are a plan by St Louis Legacy Ice Foundation, which would be the St. Louis Ice Center and a new practice facility for the St. Louis Blues in Creve Cooeur Lake Park; an expansion plan for Creve Coeur Airport; and a singlefamily home development by McBride and Sons. More proposals are expected. The district will include 1,800 acres of flood plain and has been called the last major undeveloped area in Maryland Heights as well as the county itself. The district has general “non-urban” zoning, and any development will need special plan approvals. Some of the planning costs, expected to total almost $1 million, may be recoverable from developers, but the city also expects to devote some of its own funds to the overall project, development director Wayne Oldroyd said.

Scorching heat causes water main breaks

A water main break blamed on the heat shut down businesses and caused low water pressure Friday in downtown St. Louis, city officials said. The continuing heat wave prompted the National Weather Service to extend by another day, until 8 p.m. Sunday, an excessive heat warning because of heat index values expected to hit 105 to 115 degrees. Buildings including the Central Library and St. Patrick Center, which provides services for homeless people, shut down because of the 36-inch transmission main break that started about 3 a.m. near north 13th Street and Convention Plaza. Pressure was restored to the system about noon, according to Curt Skouby, the city director of public utilities. He said one block of Washington Avenue was expected to experience continued disruptions of water service into the evening or night. The break was blamed on temperatures that reached 103 degrees Friday and sent the heat index up to 113 degrees. The drop in water pressure affected cooling towers in down-

town buildings, so indoor temperatures rose. The city’s water division adjusted pressure in other water pipes to compensate for the main break downtown, according to a city spokesman. Two smaller water main breaks occurred elsewhere in the city — one near the intersection of Union Boulevard and Brown Avenue, and the other at Enright Avenue and Sarah Street. Neither caused a significant loss of pressure nor was expected to trigger any lasting interruption of service for nearby water users, said Skouby. Another water main break

closed Dunn Road between Waterford Drive and Washington Street in Florissant, police said. The westbound Interstate 270 exit ramp onto Washington Street/Elizabeth Avenue was also closed, causing backups on the highway. Skouby said that water main breaks are most common in winter, when cold conditions and source water can cause metal pipes to contract. “In the summer, you have the opposite,” Skouby said. “It is hot weather and our source water is high temperatures, so that’s going to cause the metal to expand.”

He noted that it was “not unusual” to see such a spate of main breaks, and said there were no long-term trends to suggest that main breaks are becoming more common amid hotter summers. But periods of drought, he said, can also cause soil to contract and contribute to a rise in breaks, as happened in 2012. St. Patrick Center’s clients were bused to temporary shelters across the area. The Biddle Housing Opportunities Center on north 13th Street was also affected, and the city put up four portable toilets at the site. Sump Coffee on south Jefferson Avenue closed because of low water pressure. The ongoing heat wave also changed plans for the funeral of St. Louis fire Capt. John Kemper at Harris-Stowe State University. People attending the funeral were advised to stay inside the auditorium while a 21-gun salute took place outside. Kemper, 59, died July 12 from injuries suffered in a building fire in the 3600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue on July 5. Friday’s high temperature of 103 degrees recorded at St. Louis Lambert International Airport fell shy of the local July 21 record of 106 set in 1901. The scorching heat will con-

tinue Saturday as the high temperature is expected to reach 105 degrees with a heat index of up to 113, according to the National Weather Service. There’s a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday night into Sunday morning, when the area should see a slight cool-down with a high of 96 degrees. By Tuesday the high temperature is expected to be a more comfortable 89 degrees. But the heat will creep back up to 96 degrees on Thursday. The St. Louis area has recorded only 0.24 inches of rain so far in July, 2.43 inches below average for the first three weeks of the month. Amid the scorching heat, the St. Louis Health Department changed its guidelines for carriage horses, dropping the temperature at which they must discontinue operating to 93. The horses previously couldn’t operate when it reached 96 degrees. The department notifies carriage companies on days that a temperature of 93 or higher is forecast, according to a news release.

A stolen SUV involved in a police chase Thursday night that ended with the fatal shooting of a man by St. Louis police had tried to ram a police car from a municipal police department the night before, police said. St. Louis police identified the shooting victim as Isiah O. Perkins, 27, of the 10300 block of Oxford Hill Drive in Creve Coeur. St. Louis acting police chief Lawrence O’Toole said two officers spotted on Thursday a white Nissan Murano that had been reported stolen on Tuesday and was involved Wednesday in an attempted assault on a police officer. The officers put down spike strips at Goodfellow Boulevard and Natural Bridge Avenue, O’Toole said. The SUV hit the strips but sped north on Goodfellow until it crashed in the parking lot of the St. Louis Fish & Chicken shop at Lillian Avenue and Goodfellow. Perkins fled from the crashed vehicle, struggled with two officers and pointed a gun at them before one of the officers shot him, O’Toole said. Another man fled and escaped; police were looking for him Friday. A sister of Perkins, reached on Friday, said her family did not wish to comment. Tim Swope, chief of the North County Police Cooperative, said the Nissan had caused trouble for his officers on Wednesday night. He said it started when officers from his

department were in pursuit of a different vehicle on Wednesday night. (He said he did not have any information available to him on Friday about what initiated that pursuit.) The chase started in Pine Lawn and went eastbound on Natural Bridge Road and across the city line. Swope said the Nissan started chasing the police car — pursuing the pursuers — and tried to ram the police car near Natural Bridge Avenue and Goodfellow Boulevard. Swope said his officers dropped their pursuit of the first car and chased the Nissan downtown before calling it off. St. Louis police saw the Nissan on Thursday night and tried to stop it, according to statements from O’Toole. No officers were injured in the incident. O’Toole said a gun believed to have been the suspect’s was recovered. The officer who opened fire is 35 and an 11-year veteran of the department. He was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the city’s Force Investigative Unit. The car belonged to the owner of a car detailing shop in Breckenridge Hills. The owner had driven his car to work on Tuesday morning and left his keys in the ignition so his employees could move it around the property as they worked on other cars. At 7:19 a.m., a man walked up and drove off in the car, a spokesman for the department said.

Protesters face pepper spray on hot issue of no air conditioning in jail

CHRISTIAN GOODEN • cgooden@Post-dispatch.com

St. Louis police attempt to calm protesters outside the St. Louis medium security jail known as the workhouse on Friday, as about 150 gathered to call attention to what they called inhumane conditions at the facility because of the lack of air conditioning. JAIL • FROM A1

fence closer to the building, but they stopped short of going over its razor wire top. St. Louis police officers monitored the protest and at times stood between them and the fences. Chants from the protesters of “Let them go” were met with a “Let us out” response from inmates inside who gathered at windows and waved towels. Tamitra Williford was among the protesters. “I’m here for the sake of humanity,” she said. The heat is just one of many complaints about the jail at 7600 Hall Street, which is technically called the Medium Security Institution but known more informally as the city “workhouse.” Allegations of unsanitary conditions and abuse from guards continue to circulate about the facility, which houses 769 people awaiting trial. In 2009, a report by the American Civil Liberties Union accused the jail of allowing inmate assaults, sexual harassment, negligent medical care and squalid conditions. In 2012, in both civil and criminal complaints, guards at the

jail were accused of setting up “gladiator”-like fights between inmates for amusement. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice said the jail had one of the highest rates of reported sexual abuse among the country’s jails, at 6.3 percent. Critics who have long called for its closure say the city’s poorest residents, unable to afford bail, are the ones stuck in the troubled facility for months on end. “Certainly one of my goals is to reduce the number of people who are there by moving them through more quickly, getting them to trial more quickly,” St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said Wednesday. In the meantime, City Corrections Commissioner Dale Glass says there is a heat safety plan in place. The cafeteria and other common areas are serving as cooling stations, and he says 24-hour medical help is available. Inmates and staff also have access to wet towels, water, Gatorade, popsicles and ice to help stay cool, Krewson said. Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed has called for temporary air conditioning units to

be installed in the workhouse to get prisoners through the hottest months of the summer until city leaders can work out a more permanent change. In a statement on Friday, Krewson said the city was already taking bids for the costs of repairing windows and installing air conditioning units in the older parts of the building. It’s one of several efforts the city’s corrections division has explored since voters rejected a bond issue in 2015 that would have funded infrastructure improvements throughout St. Louis, including air conditioning at the workhouse, she said. The St. Louis Action Council and Arch City Defenders raised roughly $10,000 to bail out 15 people on Friday. They hope to raise enough to bail out as many as 20 inmates, St. Louis Action Council organizer Kayla Reed said. Having done similar bailout fundraisers in the past, the groups received 100 requests for bail when they decided to hold another in response to the heat wave. “These are next of kin, these are mothers, partners, children who are sending us emails,”

Reed said. Those who know someone in the shelter have reached out to share stories of inmates with medical conditions such as asthma exacerbated by the heat, inmates who aren’t receiving as much water as they need or inmates passing out, Reed said. Missouri state Rep. Joshua Peters, D-St. Louis, has also pushed for the Legislature to examine the conditions of the jail. In a letter to House Speaker Todd Richardson, Peters has requested a special committee to tackle the issue and an investigation through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior services into its “deplorable and unsanitary health conditions.” Krewson pushed back on his statements on Wednesday, saying she toured the workhouse about a month ago. “It’s not nice in there, all right? But it’s not deplorable. It’s not unsanitary,” Krewson said. “It wasn’t as hot a month ago as it is today. But it was OK.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

armed criminal action in the December 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, 24, at the end of a chase. Stockley Wilson issued on Thursday an order prohibiting “broadcasting, televising, recording and photographing” the trial in response to a request to televise the trial by the Law

Newz Network. Stockley’s attorneys and St. Louis prosecutors opposed the request, Wilson said. Broadcasting the trial, Wilson said, “would materially interfere with the rights of the parties to a fair trial.” The jury was to be sequestered at a secret location for the trial, which is expected to take up to two weeks. The judge in May also issued

a gag order in the case on parties, attorneys and witnesses “to protect the due process rights of the defendant and particularly his right to an impartial jury.” Stockley, 36, who was living in Texas before he was charged last year, resigned from the police department in August 2013.

LAW & ORDER CHESTERFIELD > Former employee accused of embezzling from clinic • The former administrator of a Chesterfield pediatric clinic misspent and stole more than $115,000 of the group’s money using a company credit card or by pocketing insurance withholdings, prosecutors say. Becky Ann York, 43, of the 300 block of Green Jade Estates Drive in the Fenton area in Jefferson County, was charged Thursday with felony York counts of identity theft and receiving stolen property. Court records say York was the office administrator for the St. Louis Pediatric Associates at 226 South Woods Mill Road in Chesterfield, managing payroll, insurance, purchasing and billing. Charges say that between January 2015 and November of 2016, York made $100,754 in purchases on a credit card she had opened in the company’s name and paid for those purchases by transferring money from the clinic’s checking account. She was also paid $14,413.86 between August 2014 and November 2016 by canceling withholdings from her paychecks while the clinic continued to cover her health insurance premiums, charges say. Reached by phone Friday, York declined to discuss the allegations but said, “I didn’t do anything.” She would not identify her attorney. York had worked for St. Louis Pediatric Associates from April 2014 until she was terminated in November 2016, charges say. Dr. Laura Hartman, a pediatrician at the clinic, confirmed York’s employment history but declined further comment. Bail for York was set at $100,000. O’FALLON, MO. > Charges upgraded in killing of cat • A St. Charles County prosecutor on Friday upgraded to a felony an animal abuse charge for a man police say was high on drugs when he gutted his pet cat with a pocket knife and then beheaded it. Brian M. Wilson, 30, of the 100 block of Lincoln Street, was originally charged July 10 with a misdemeanor count of animal abuse. On Friday, Assistant St. Charles County prosecutor Jillian Anderson filed a felony count based on the same allegations. Wilson was still not in custody Friday; his bail on the new charge was set at $15,000. Court records in the case do not list a lawyer for Wilson. Charges say that on May 18, Wilson killed his cat at his apartment by using a pocket knife to cut open his cat’s abdomen and expose its organs before he sliced off its head. A booking photo of Wilson was not available. ST. LOUIS > Man accused of sexual abuse • A St. Louis man has been charged with sexually abusing two children last fall. Louis J. Clark, 71, of the 6500 block of Fyler Avenue in the city’s Lindenwood Park neighborhood, was charged Tuesday with statutory rape and two counts of statutory sodomy. Clark Court documents said Clark sexually abused 7- and 9-year-old children in his care in September and threatened to strike them if they refused to do what he wanted. Clark admitted to police that he touched the children inappropriately, charges say. Clark was held on a $100,000 cash-only bail.

Comedy pals Steve Martin and Martin Short present funny program BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ Special to the Post-Dispatch

Steve Martin strummed his banjo before a sold-out audience at the Fox Theatre Thursday night and said that young musicians often approached him and ask, “Steve, how can I get my music out there like you have?” “First, be very creative,” Martin said he told them. “And two, already be famous.” As it turns out, that formula also works for a pair of actor-comedians — Martin himself, say, and Martin Short — who are thinking of mounting a touring act based on conversation between the two, featuring anecdotes and old photos, plus music and some comic set pieces. The secret to Martin and Short’s success, though, is that they pay as much attention to the first part of the equation as the second. The inside-showbiz spirit and mostly self-deprecating tone of the show were evident from its very title: “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Lives.” A film-clip compilation that opened the proceedings sold the act a different way: “See them before they’re dead.” The featured clips included highlights from both men’s careers, including Short’s devastating turn as Jerry Lewis

REVIEW on “SCTV”; Martin’s novelty hit single, “King Tut”; “Saturday Night Live” bits including Short’s shady lawyer Nathan Thurm and Martin’s “wild and crazy guy”; plus movies the pair worked on together, including “¡Three Amigos!” (where they first met) and the “Father of the Bride” movies. When they appeared on stage, the jokes flew by fast. “It’s a thrill to be here,” Short said, “but it’s really more of an obligation.” He added that still another name for the show would be “If We’d Saved, We Wouldn’t Be Here.” Mostly, they turned their humor on each other. “You know what I like about touring with Marty?” Martin asked. “No paparazzi.” Short countered by commenting on Martin’s ghostly pallor: “You look like someone put a white toupee on a urinal.” These are not insults, Martin noted, but rather “Hollywood compliments,” which are often double-edged. “Marty, I think of you as a Renaissance man … in that you carry smallpox,” he said. “Hanging out with Steve is a lot like the movie ‘Deliverance,’” Short said. “It’s all fun and games until the banjos come out.”

With help from audience members, they performed a song from “¡Three Amigos!,” teaching the volunteers the “Three Amigos salute” and having them sing along. One of them, an ER doctor from St. Charles, briefly stole the show with his operatic voice. Martin and Short then sat in big leather chairs and spun tales from their past. Martin’s was about himself as a young comedian excited to meet Elvis Presley, only to be bored by him when Elvis rattled on endlessly about his guns. Short told a hilarious tale of having his leg hair removed to play an 11-year-old boy in the movie “Clifford,” then realizing afterward that he’d been exposing himself to the female crew members the entire time. On a similar note, Short stripped down to a body suit with anatomical parts drawn on to perform a broadly comic song-anddance number, “Stepbrother to Jesus,” which he said brought together off-offBroadway’s twin obsessions from 1972: “the Lord Jesus Christ and full-frontal nudity.” Leaving the stage, he told Martin, “Top that, (expletive).” Martin, who in recent years has turned more to music, winning Grammys and cowriting a Broadway musical, brought out the bluegrass band Steep Canyon Rangers,

which accompanied him and then took the stage for a barn-burning performance of “Auden’s Train.” Martin didn’t let the comedy lag, however, saying the Rangers were like family to him, “in that we often eat dinner in silence.” Short returned in character, as his addled infotainment reporter Jiminy Glick, albeit in the form of a ventriloquist dummy, so he and Martin could riff on celebrity photos. Kim Jong Un, he said, “looks like a bouncer at a lesbian bar.” Of Bill O’Reilly, he said, “He thinks ‘harass’ is two words.” And of Mike Pence: “That guy is so white,” telling Martin, “he makes you look like a member of Wu-Tang Clan.” Throughout the show, Martin’s humor was cool and erudite, while Short wasn’t afraid to go low and get manically physical. “Isn’t that funny?” Martin mused. “After the show I’m so relaxed, and Marty is completely exhausted.” Their clashing yet complementary styles, quick, cutting wits and deep, genuine friendship made for an evening of first-class humor. Before closing with a song, Martin reminded the audience, “You can follow us on Twitter, or you can do something meaningful with your lives.”

between renters and the people making the rules,” she told the Post-Dispatch after the meeting where her permit application was approved. Martin said renting a room in her home helped her family make ends meet. Her assessed property value rose to $237,800 this year from $136,300 in 2011. “In order to fill the gap of income from my rise in taxes I created supplemental income on my property in order to cover these costs,” Martin told the Maplewood City Council at a public hearing earlier this month. Maplewood is new to the short-term rental business. So far, very few have been approved. Officials are reviewing rentals on a case-by-case basis. But some cities don’t plan to go that far. In Chesterfield, the council voted to prohibit the short-term rental of single-family homes in June. The ordinance defines short term as fewer than 30 days. Violations could result in a fine between $5 and $1,000, or up to three months in jail. City Administrator Michael Geisel said the council “did not think that a short-term commercialized transient use of residential properties was in the best interest of the community.” Chesterfield Councilman Barry Flachsbart wasn’t at the meeting where the council agreed to the proposal, but said he supported it. Flachsbart said he didn’t believe short-term rentals would boost tourism significantly or contribute to local revenue. “I believe that they are not in the best interests of the resi-

dential areas of the City and a number of residents in my ward have complained strongly about them,” Flachsbart emphasized in an email. “We do have adequate hotel and motel space for most people who want to stay in Chesterfield.” Some municipalities outside of Missouri have decided to tax short-term rentals. But Flachsbart insists, “it’s not a matter of

getting revenue from them.” In Hazelwood, officials passed an ordinance in May prohibiting the rentals. It says “the shortterm rental of all or a portion of residences is not in keeping to the stability, shared commitment and sense of community that give Hazelwood its exceptional quality, and that such rentals conflict with the neighborhood environment that makes both

place him. “The president wanted to bring on some folks, to add to the team,” Spicer said in a brief interview on Friday. “This (job) is something you dream of. I can’t thank the president enough.” Asked if he had any regrets, Spicer replied: “None.” In a statement Sanders read during a briefing, Trump said he was “grateful for Sean’s work” and wished him “continued success as he moves on to pursue new opportunities — just look at his great television ratings.”

‘CLEAN SLATE’

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus called a private meeting of White House communications staff Friday and said that Spicer, who will remain through August to help Scaramucci transition into the role, is leaving to give the new communications director “a clean slate,” according to someone briefed on the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity. Priebus also tried to play down tension between him and Scaramucci, saying the two had known each other for a long time, and Scaramucci told his new team that he is not a “top-down” manager, this person said. Spicer’s abrupt departure — which caught West Wing staffers by surprise — reflects the latest upheaval in a White House that has been beset by tumult and factions since the day Trump took office. Bringing Scaramucci into the White House could further heighten tension among staff. Scaramucci has a contentious relationship with both Spicer and Priebus, each of whom objected to Trump’s decision to install him in the top communications job. Scaramucci has reportedly savaged the chief of staff and the White House press operation. Scaramucci has argued to confidants that the media operation mobilizes aggressively whenever critical coverage of Priebus emerges, but that it is far less diligent about defending the president himself, which he characterized as disloyal. Priebus, meanwhile, previously blocked Scaramucci from key White House jobs, including director of the office of public liaison. In a last-ditch attempt to keep Scaramucci out of the communications director role, Priebus offered him the public liaison job, a White House official said. A Priebus ally, however, rejected the notion that the chief of staff had tried to block Scaramucci, saying he was simply trying to slow down the process.

SPLIT OPINIONS

Some Trump loyalists inside the West Wing view the hiring of

Scaramucci over Priebus’ wishes — and the sudden resignation of Spicer — as a blow to Priebus’ already fraught standing with the president and his leadership of the senior staff. Stephen Bannon, Trump’s senior strategist, also opposed the hiring, according to two people familiar with the discussions. Although Bannon — the former chairman of the conservative Breitbart News website — likes Scaramucci personally, he worried that the financier does not have the right set of skills for the job and symbolizes the corporate Wall Street interests that Bannon and others in the nationalist wing of the White House have railed against. The communications post had been open since Michael Dubke vacated it in May.

RUSSIA PROBE LOOMS

The latest staff changes come amid growing legal headaches for Trump, as well as his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, who during the campaign attended a June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer promising incriminating information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Trump’s legal team, which underwent a shake-up Thursday, has begun working to undermine the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into potential collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia by looking into ways to highlight alleged conflicts of interest on Mueller’s team, The Washington Post reported Thursday. The president has also inquired about pardon authority — including his ability to pardon aides, family members and even himself, according to people familiar with the effort.

‘LIKE BROTHERS’

Scaramucci addressed reporters Friday afternoon during a news conference, thanking Spicer for doing an “amazing job” and adding, “I love the guy. I hope he goes on to make a tremendous amount of money.” Scaramucci insisted he has a good relationship with Priebus and said he offered to bring him on board as chief operating officer at his SkyBridge Capital company after the 2012 presidential campaign. Priebus, then head of the Republican National Committee, declined, he said. “We’re a little bit like brothers,” Scaramucci said. “We rough each other up a bit, and that’s totally normal for brothers. He’s a dear friend.” But in the same briefing, he also made clear whom he views as his ultimate boss: “The president said I report to him directly.” Several times at Friday’s briefing, Scaramucci said he that

loved the president and that his goal was to make sure Trump’s message was heard and better represented in the media. “I think there’s been, at times, a disconnect between the way we see the president and how much we love the president and the way some of you perhaps see the president,” he said. “And I certainly see the American people probably see the president the way I do. But we want to get that message out there.”

PRESIDENT IMPRESSED

Ivanka Trump, her husband, Kushner, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had all been pushing Scaramucci for the job — and on Friday, as some West Wing officials made a plea to the president to rethink his decision, both his daughter and son-inlaw reached out to Scaramucci, to reassure him, according to a senior White House official. The president has been particularly taken in recent weeks with Scaramucci’s hard-charging defenses of his administration on cable TV news, several people familiar with his views said. The president was impressed with how Scaramucci fought back against a CNN article about himself, ultimately leading to the resignation of three CNN staffers involved with the story. Scaramucci was slated to join the White House in another capacity earlier this year, but he had challenges resolving ethical conflicts associated with SkyBridge Capital, which he sold to a Chinese conglomerate with ties to the government just before Trump’s inauguration. On Friday, he told reporters he has been assured by government ethics officials and the White House counsel that there should be no obstacles to his joining the administration now.

SHOUTING AND ‘SNL’

Spicer’s resignation marks a sudden end to a rocky tenure. The press secretary undercut his credibility his first full day on the job when, at Trump’s urging, he made inaccurate statements about the size of the president’s Inauguration Day crowds. Trump nitpicked and criticized Spicer’s on-camera briefings. There were other slights. During his first trip abroad, Trump kept Spicer, a devout Catholic, from a meeting with Pope Francis. Spicer, a longtime Republican communications operative in Washington, began his time at the podium with a warm relationship with the press corps. But six months later, many now associate him with his shouting binges and his caricature on “Saturday Night Live,” where he was ruthlessly parodied by actress Melissa McCarthy dressed as a man.

our single-family and multifamily areas special, welcoming and desirable.” Officials in Frontenac and Ladue are considering similar plans to restrict or forbid home sharing. Ballwin is among cities that haven’t taken any action related to the rentals. Assistant City Administrator Andrew Hixson said he wasn’t aware of any issues. St. Louis, like Ballwin, does not have a city ordinance specifically regulating Airbnb. There are nearly 1,000 active rentals in St. Louis on Airbnb, the short-term rental data site Airdna reports. City Airbnb properties, similar to any other rental property, must undergo an inspection by the Housing Conservation District to determine if the unit meets city code and how many people are allowed to occupy the unit, a city spokeswoman said. In Dogtown, a homeowner has renovated her three-bedroom bungalow near the St. Louis Zoo to attract prospective short-term renters. Lauren Schneider, a St. Louis Public Schools science teacher, said she first listed her property on the home sharing site in May. Renting most of her home to travelers helps her afford to own property in the city, contribute to the local economy and community, and create a welcoming space for visitors to explore the city, she said. Unlike hotels, Schneider believes, “by keeping tourism economy in the hands of the locals, more of the money made from tourism stays in St. Louis.” Schneider said she paid taxes on the income she made from her listing.

Alderman Scott Ogilvie, whose 24th Ward includes the Dogtown area, is a supporter of Airbnb and the role it plays as a revenue generator for renters and the city. But in some places Airbnb exists in a gray area — not quite a traditional rental property and not quite a hotel. The ambiguity may explain the challenge in creating policies targeting Airbnb, he said. Ogilvie said taxing the rentals might make the practice easier to regulate. St. Louis city and county collect a special taxes on convention centers and sports complexes to fund facilities and tourism. In the city, the taxes also apply to hotels and motels, bed and breakfasts, and ”transient home rentals through online providers like Airbnb and similar room rentals.” Recently, lawmakers in Missouri and Illinois have proposed measures regarding short-term rentals. Last year, then-Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a measure that sought to limit local government rights regulate short-term rentals. The House drafted a similar proposal in the most recent regular session. The plan successfully passed the House but failed in the Senate. A measure introduced in the Illinois Senate in February also would have prevented local governments from prohibiting or taxing short-term rentals but would have allowed their regulation for public health and safety reasons. The proposal never reached a vote. Ashley Lisenby • 314-340-8344 @aadlisenby on Twitter alisenby@post-dispatch.com

Sessions may have discussed campaign with Russian official Intercepts indicate he had ‘substantive’ talks with Kislyak WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • Russia’s am-

bassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the attorney general, according to current and former U.S. officials. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Re- Sessions publican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said that the meetings were not about the Trump campaign. One U.S. official said that Sessions — who testified that he had no recollection of the encounter — had provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said the intelligence indicated that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” talks on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration. Sessions has said that he never discussed campaign-related issues with Russian officials and that it was only as a U.S. senator that he met with Kislyak. “I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign,” Sessions said in March when he announced that he would recuse himself from matters relating to the FBI probe of Russian interference in the election. Current and former U.S. officials said that assertion was at odds with Kislyak’s accounts of conversations during encounters over the course of the 2016 campaign, one in April ahead of Trump’s first major foreign policy speech and another in July on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention. The apparent discrepancy could pose new problems for Sessions at a time when his po-

sition in the administration appears increasingly tenuous. Trump, in an interview this week, expressed frustration with Sessions’ recusing himself from the Russia probe and indicated that he regretted his decision to make the lawmaker from Alabama the nation’s top law enforcement officer. Trump also faulted Sessions as giving “bad answers” during his confirmation hearing about his Russian contacts. Officials emphasized that the information contradicting Sessions comes from U.S. intelligence on Kislyak’s communications with the Kremlin, and acknowledged that the Russian ambassador could have mischaracterized or exaggerated the nature of his interactions. “Obviously I cannot comment on the reliability of what anonymous sources describe in a wholly uncorroborated intelligence intercept that the Washington Post has not seen and that has not been provided to me,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokeswoman in a statement. She reiterated that Sessions did not discuss interference in the election. Russian and other foreign diplomats in Washington and elsewhere have been known, at times, to report false or misleading information to confuse U.S. intelligence agencies. But U.S. officials with access to Russian intelligence reports say Kislyak — whose tenure as ambassador to the United States ended recently — has a reputation for accurately relaying details about interactions.

MANAFORT, TRUMP JR. INTERVIEWS

Trump’s eldest son and his former campaign chairman are discussing being privately interviewed by a Senate committee investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, the panel said Friday. The committee called for Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort to appear publicly next week. But the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee now say the men are negotiating the terms of their appearances. In a joint statement, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., also said they are negotiating with Trump Jr. and Manafort about turning over documents. Both men face questions about a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 that was described to Trump Jr. in emails as part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s campaign.

He was released from the hospital July 7 and died at home. Kemper’s family entered the building at Harris-Stowe State University, where the funeral was held, by walking through lines of firefighters standing at attention in dress uniforms. Bagpipers accompanied the solemn walk. “I can’t imagine a greater honor to give a fellow firefighter,” said Yvonne Love, 56, of Olathe, Kan., who knew Kemper and his wife in high school. “This is one of the saddest and the most beautiful things happening at the same time.” Kemper’s oak casket, draped with an American flag, was at the front of the auditorium. Before the service began, photos from Kemper’s life were projected on a wall. They included photos from his first dance with his wife at their wedding, a vacation at Universal Studios and him standing in front of a firetruck. In all the pictures, he had a big smile. Jenkerson said Kemper never put his health and safety above others. “Fire Capt. John Kemper lived to help

Capt. Todd Howard, said she was proud of how Kemper was being honored. “It just

shows how much love there is in this company,” she said. At least 200 people poured into the auditorium to pay their respects. Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed presented the Kemper family with a resolution from the board recognizing Kemper. Among those speaking at the service were Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson. David Scott, chaplain for the Fire Department, called Kemper “a great man, loving husband, outstanding father and the leader of many.” At the end of the funeral the last call of service, signifying that Kemper was going home, was heard over the speakers. His last alarm was documented on July 5, 2017, at the age of 59 after serving 24 years. Because of the scorching heat, mourners were encouraged to listen to the 21-gun salute from inside the building. After the service, the casket was taken on a firetruck back to the mortuary.

Cellmate charged in beating at St. Louis Justice Center BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • An inmate at the St. Louis Justice Center was charged Friday with beating his cellmate July 15 and leaving him in a coma. Anthony D. Bell, 26, of the 8700 block of North Broadway was charged with first-degree assault. Harold Mosley Jr., 27, was in critical condition at St. Louis University Hospital from the July 15 attack, court records say. Police described the beating as “brutal” in court documents. “Part of (Mosley’s) skull has been re-

moved and he is suffering seizures,” according to a probable cause statement. “He has suffered serious blunt force trauma to his head. He may not live.” Charges say Bell was Mosley “absolutely the only person who had access to (Mosley) between the time he was alive and well and the time he was unconscious and seriously beaten.” Surveillance video showed that after Mosley last entered his cell before he was found beaten, Bell was the only person to come and go from the cell. Mosley was found between 6 and 8 p.m. July 15.

An investigator found bloody clothing hidden in a bin in Bell and Mosley’s jail cell, charges say. Surveillance video showed Bell “tossing something into a laundry bin,” which police Bell determined was wet clothing that smelled of bleach and had appeared to have blood spatter on it. Bell took two showers between the time Mosley was injured and when he was found, according to court documents. Police said that they found blood spatter in the jail cell and that Bell also had a ¾-inch cut on his left hand.

Mosley was in jail charged with robbery. Police said Bell reported finding Mosley unresponsive. Officials said the men shared a two-man cell in a unit that holds 60 men. Bell has been at the jail on charges of robbery, assault and armed criminal action. Those charges, filed in March 2016 say Bell robbed a man of a bag of clothing and shot him in the abdomen in the 1700 block of South Tucker Boulevard. Bail for Bell on the new assault charge was set at $250,000 cash-only. Denise Hollinshed • 314-340-8319 @Hollinshed57 on Twitter dhollinshed@post-dispatch.com

U.S. to block travel to North Korea ‘Mounting concerns,’ death of student from Ohio prompt ban set to begin in August BY WILLIAM BRANIGIN AND CAROL MORELLO Washington Post

President Donald Trump’s administration plans to prohibit Americans from traveling to North Korea, the State Department announced Friday, citing serious risks of arrest and imprisonment in the isolated totalitarian state. The ban, first disclosed by tour groups that specialize in travel to North Korea, comes in apparent retaliation for the detention of U.S. citizens there and the death of a young tourist who was held for nearly 18 months before being flown home in a coma. Two tour companies, Koryo Tours and Young Pioneer Tours, said they were told the ban would be formally declared July 27 and would take effect a month later. “The safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas is one of our highest priorities,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said late Friday morning in announcing the forthcoming ban. “Due to mounting concerns over the serious risk of arrest and long-term detention under North Korea’s system of law enforcement, (Secretary of State Rex Tillerson) has authorized a Geographical Travel Restriction on all U.S. citizen nationals’ use of a passport to travel in, through, or to North Korea.” The ban would make U.S. passports invalid for travel to North Korea, although a waiver system would allow Americans to obtain passports with a special validation for visits to the country. The restrictions will take effect 30 days after a notice is published in the Federal Register next week, Nauert said. Otto Warmbier, a University of Virginia student from Ohio, used China-based Young Pioneer Tours to travel to North Korea in January 2016, only to be arrested on charges of attempting to steal a propaganda poster and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment with hard labor. He died June 19 at age 22, six days after being released in a coma and flown home to Cincinnati. Three other U.S. citizens remain imprisoned in North Korea. “We have just been informed that the U.S. government will no longer be allowing U.S. citizens to travel to the DPRK (North Korea),” Young Pioneer Tours said in a statement. “It is expected that the ban will come into force within 30 days of July 27th. After the 30-day grace period any U.S. national that travels to North Korea will have their passport invalidated by their government.” Koryo issued a similar statement, saying that after the ban takes effect, “it will

no longer be legal for anyone travelling on a U.S. passport to visit the DPRK as a tourist.” North Korea’s official name is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK. Young Pioneer Tours announced last month that it would no longer take Americans to North Korea, saying that Warmbier’s death prompted a re-evaluation. “Now, the assessment of risk for Americans visiting North Korea has become too high,” the company said. The U.S. government had discouraged Americans from traveling to North Korea but had not issued an outright ban.

‘STRONG SIGNALS’

Evan Medeiros, an Asia specialist for the Eurasia Group, said a travel ban would be far more effective than the increasingly dire travel warnings issued by the State Department in the last year. The warnings have been aimed at deterring Americans from traveling to North Korea to satisfy curiosity about the strange Stalinist state sometimes called “the hermit kingdom.” “American citizens need to hear very strong signals about how dangerous it is to travel to North Korea,” he said. “It closes an important loophole to eliminate things like Otto Warmbier going to North Korea for adventure travel.” Anthony Ruggiero of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said the travel prohibition would be stronger if it came from the Treasury Department with steep financial fines. But he said a travel limitation is necessary to keep more Americans

Sessions, Philadelphia officials spar over ‘sanctuary city’ crime BY ERRIN HAINES WHACK associated Press

PHILADELPHIA • Attorney General Jeff

Sessions again singled out Philadelphia on Friday as an increasingly violent city made more dangerous by immigrants living in the country illegally, setting up a showdown with the nation’s top law enforcement official in a so-called sanctuary city. In an address to federal prosecutors, Sessions pleaded with local law enforcement to “reconsider carefully the harm they are doing to their residents” through policies he said “are giving sanctuary not to law-abiding citizens in our communities, but to criminals.” “If we’re going to stop the rise of violent crime, let’s work together,” Sessions said, adding that if people who come to America illegally “commit a crime while they’re in here, my goodness, what right do they have to demand that they not be deported?” Sessions spoke to federal prosecutors and local law enforcement officials for about 20 minutes, addressing violent crime, immigration and the opioid crisis. In a letter sent to the Justice Department last month, Philadelphia officials said the city is adhering to the law, even while refusing to collect information on residents’ immigration status. According to the city’s policy on the issue, the prison system “only responds to detainer

requests to turn over a detainee to Immigration and Customs Enforcement if the agency has a judicial, criminal warrant.” Philadelphia is among several cities nationwide that have vowed to maintain their “sanctuary city” status. Police Commissioner Richard Ross — who was present for Sessions’ remarks and met briefly with the attorney general before his address — said he did not think local law enforcement “belongs in the immigration business.” “As it relates to violent crime, our problems are not people from other countries,” Ross said. “Our problem is the young men here who are hopeless about a lot of things.” Ross referred to Philadelphia as a “welcoming city” and said Sessions’ approach could have a chilling effect on efforts to encourage immigrants to report crimes. President Donald Trump has tried to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. A federal judge said last week that he was not likely to reinstate Trump’s executive order to cut the funding over cities’ interactions with U.S. immigration authorities. Sessions’ trip came after a New York Times interview published this week in which the president expressed frustration with Sessions for recusing himself from the FBI probe into Russian election tampering. Sessions did not take questions from reporters after making his remarks.

from being arrested by the North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un and used to extract concessions from the U.S. government. “North Korea uses these hostages as bargaining chips,” he said. “They likely want some high-profile American to go to North Korea to seek the release of the other three still there. They want to use these Americans to limit the Trump administration’s ability to impose sanctions against the regime. So this is a good step forward.” Bruce Klingner, a senior research fellow for Northeast Asia at the Heritage Foundation, said a travel ban would not have a huge financial impact on North Korea. But he said it was needed after the imprisonment and ultimate death of Warmbier. “Americans cherish our God-given right to do stupid things,” he said. “But at times it’s necessary to do something like this. When an American is arrested, it inevitably involves the U.S. government. They have to send a senior or former government official there, and there’s always concern there’s going to be a quid pro quo on diplomatic or economic benefits in return.”

‘VICTORY DAY’

The reported July 27 announcement date coincides with North Korea’s “Victory Day,” on which the isolated communist regime marks the 1953 Korean War armistice with elaborate pageantry. Under U.S. law, the secretary of state can impose a “geographical travel restriction” if a country is at war with the United

States, if armed hostilities are underway or if travel there poses a danger to the safety of U.S. citizens. Anyone who violates a such a restriction can be prosecuted for misuse of a passport. No other country is now off-limits to U.S. passport holders. Travel restrictions were in place against Iran from 1987 to 1997, Iraq from 1991 to 2003, Libya from 1981 to 2004 and Cuba from 1963 to 1977. Unlike Warmbier, none of the three Korean-Americans known to remain imprisoned in North Korea entered the country as tourists. One is a businessman who formerly lived in Virginia, and two had taught at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, a school attended by the children of North Korea’s elite. The longest-held American is Kim Dong-chul, a businessman who was working in a special economic zone in North Korea when he was arrested in October 2015 and accused of being a South Korean spy. Kim Sang-duk, 58, a U.S. citizen also known as Tony Kim, was teaching accounting at the university. The first American to be detained since Trump took office, he was arrested in April while trying to fly to China with his wife. He was accused of unspecified hostile criminal acts. Similar vague charges were lodged against Kim Hak-song, another teacher at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, who was arrested in May as he was about to leave North Korea. As of May, the university employed about 40 Americans, most of them ethnic Koreans. In recent years, tour companies have said that 800 to 1,200 Americans have visited North Korea annually. In all, about 5,000 Western tourists have visited each year.

HAWAII PREPARES FOR ATTACK

Hawaii is the first state to prepare the public for the possibility of a ballistic missile threat from North Korea. The state’s Emergency Management Agency on Friday announced a public education campaign. Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi said that because it would take a missile only about 15 minutes to arrive, there wouldn’t be much time to prepare. He said instructions were simple: “Get inside, stay inside and stay tuned.” Starting in November, Hawaii will begin monthly tests of an “attack alert” siren the state hasn’t heard since the end of the Cold War in the 1980s. Miyagi said his agency was just trying to stay ahead of a “very unlikely” potential threat. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Self-driving cars Judge OKs $11.2 million for hacked Ashley Madison users may hit road for Lyft Boston riders will test service first

By BrIaN FuNG Washington Post

Ashley Madison’s Korean website is shown on a computer screen in 2015.

Secrets spread from infidelity website By JIM SaLtEr Associated Press

St. LOuIS • A federal judge approved on Friday an $11.2 million settlement between the marital infidelity website Ashley Madison and users who sued after hackers released personal information, including financial data and details of their sexual proclivities. U.S. District Judge John Ross in St. Louis gave preliminary approval to a class action settlement that was initially announced last week by Torontobased Ruby Corp., the parent company of Ashley Madison. Lawsuits from around the country were consolidated in the Eastern District of Missouri. A final approval hearing is scheduled for Nov. 20. Douglas Dowd, an attorney representing users of the website, said the settlement was “fair and reasonable” for both sides. Robert Atkins, the lead attorney for Ruby Corp., declined comment after the hearing. The lawsuits were filed after

hackers outed millions of people who used the website two years ago. The suits said Ashley Madison misled consumers about its security measures and safeguards. The company denied wrongdoing but said in a statement that it settled to “avoid the uncertainty, expense, and inconvenience associated with continued litigation.” Ashley Madison is marketed to people seeking extramarital relationships. Its slogan is, “Life is short. Have an affair.” At one time, it purported to have about 39 million members. The case is unique in that many website users not only want to remain anonymous but register using false names, said James McDonough III, an attorney for the users. As a result, those eligible for the settlement won’t be contacted directly. Instead, those who could benefit will be sought via magazine and web ads. Ross agreed with that plan. “There’s just no way to give direct notice to class members,” he said. McDonough said there was no estimate on how many people would seek part of the settlement money, which could range from

as little as $19 for those victimized by the hacking up to $2,000 for those who were victims of identity theft because of it. Ashley Madison’s systems were hacked in July 2015. Hackers posted the details a month later after the company didn’t comply with their demands to shut down. The release of evidence of infidelity triggered extortion crimes and unconfirmed reports of suicides. In December, Ruby Corp. agreed to pay $1.6 million in settlements with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over the data breach. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia joined the FTC in the investigation that found lax data security practices. The investigation also found that Ashley Madison created fake female profiles to entice male users. In addition to monetary penalties to the FTC, Ruby agreed in December to end certain deceptive practices, to not create fake profiles, and to develop a stronger data security program. The company has said that since the initial hacking it has implemented several measures to make customer data more secure.

ENTER TO WIN!

Silicon Valley’s steady march toward self-driving cars took another step forward Friday as the ride-hailing company Lyft said its customers would be able to summon a driverless vehicle on some roads by the end of the year. The autonomy program, which is expected to launch in Boston before eventually spreading to other cities, could ultimately involve hundreds of thousands of vehicles, company officials said. Depending on the precise conditions of a trip — including the route, traffic, weather and time of day — riders who opt in to the trial may be automatically picked up in a self-driving car built by one of a number of manufacturers working with Lyft, rather than a human driver. “You’re going to see it. You’re going to see these vehicles on the street,” said Taggart Matthiesen, Lyft’s senior director of product. As with other companies that have been publicly testing selfdriving cars, Lyft riders who participate in the program will be accompanied by test drivers sitting in the front seats of the vehicles. The moves reflect Lyft’s most visible push yet into the world of autonomy, which has so far been dominated by traditional automakers, such as Ford and General Motors, as well as tech giants such as Waymo and Uber, Lyft’s biggest rival in the ride-hailing space. Rather than trying to catch up to those firms by building vehicles of its own, Lyft’s focus is on designing a common software interface that automakers can use to put their cars on the road and interact with the public.

“We’re building a way for third parties to plug their selfdriving cars into our network,” said Luc Vincent, vice president of engineering at Lyft. In Boston, that will mean riders could be ferried about in vehicles built by Cambridgebased Nutonomy. The so-called Open Platform, which Lyft announced in June, could feature vehicles from other partners as well, such as GM and Jaguar Land Rover, which entered into a deal with Lyft last month. The result may be a mishmash of autonomous vehicles serving Lyft riders in various markets across the country — an outcome, the company said, that will accelerate the development of self-driving technology. Although Lyft has left much of the vehicle development to its partners, it will still build sensor packages and other hardware on a limited basis. Self-driving cars are expected to play a key role in the future of transportation, according to tech and automotive executives. The technology may not only prevent the 95 percent of traffic accidents that are caused by human error, analysts say, but could also make commuters more productive and turn stagnant parking lots into more useful types of development. And as more Americans grow accustomed to ride-hailing and car sharing, even private vehicle ownership could see a decline in favor of intelligent public transit. But autonomous cars also face conceptual and regulatory obstacles. A patchwork of state regulations currently governs how companies may test the technology. On Wednesday, members of a key House subcommittee unanimously approved a bill that could establish the first federal laws governing selfdriving cars. The full committee could hear the bill in time for Congress’s August recess.

BUSINESS DIGEST Missouri unemployment rate drops to 3.8 percent • Hiring rose last month in 14 U.S. states in June, evidence that the job market is getting tighter across much of the country. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates fell in 10 states and rose in only 2. Rates were stable in the other 38 states. After five years of steady hiring, unemployment rates have fallen below 4 percent in 23 states, including Missouri where the rate was 3.8 percent in June. Unemployment that low suggests that those states are at “full employment,” when nearly everyone who wants a job has one and the unemployment rate reflects the normal churn of hiring and firing. In June 2016, Missouri’s unemployment rate was 4.7 percent. Illinois’ unemployment rate was 4.7 percent in June, down from 5.9 percent a year earlier. Nationwide, employers added 222,000 jobs in June, the most in four months. The unemployment rate ticked up to a still-low 4.4 percent from 4.3 percent. Ford fighting latest Takata recall • Ford is fighting the latest expansion of the Takata air bag inflator recall. Earlier this month Takata filed documents with the U.S. government adding 2.7 million vehicles to the recall from Ford, Nissan and Mazda. All have inflators with a drying agent that previously was thought to be safe. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has said that Takata tests showed the inflator propellant can degrade and will pose a safety risk if the inflators aren’t replaced. Nissan agreed to recall about 515,000 Versa cars, but Ford and Mazda filed petitions to avoid a recall. Takata inflators can explode with too much force and spew shrapnel into drivers and passengers. At least 17 people have died and more than 180 injured due to the problem. The inflators have caused the largest automotive recall in U.S. history with 42 million vehicles and up to 69 million inflators being called back for repairs. The inflators in question were

ANALYSIS produced by Takata from 2005 to 2012. The agency said Friday that Ford and Mazda filed recall notices with the agency but also said they would turn in petitions seeking to avoid additional recalls. Such paperwork has to be filed within 30 days, and NHTSA will make the final decision. Ford vehicles in question include the 2006 through 2012 Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ sedans, the 2007 to 2011 Ford Ranger pickup and the 2007 through 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX SUVs. The recall of about 6,000 B-Series trucks from Mazda also are is in question. Nissan’s recall covers just over 515,000 Versa subcompact hatchback and sedans from the 2007 through 2012 model years. Receivership looms for nursing home chain • U.S. health care landlord Quality Care Properties Inc. said on Friday that it can seek receivership for the country’s second-largest nursing home chain, HCR ManorCare, after it failed to make a $79.6 million payment for current and past rent. In a statement, Quality Care said it had delivered a notice of default to HCR ManorCare, its main tenant, regarding the missed payment, which Quality Care said triggered immediate payment of $265 million in additional overdue rent. To protect their investments, lenders and landlords of distressed health care operators can ask the courts to appoint a receiver to take control of the business in the event of a default. In the case of Toledo, Ohiobased HCR ManorCare, Quality Care said the default allows it “to terminate the master lease, appoint receivers or exercise other remedies with respect to any and all leased properties.” Quality Care, one of the largest U.S. health care landlords, said last month that it was seeking up to $500 million to acquire HCR ManorCare. On Friday it said it remained in talks with the skilled nursing home operator about the default and other matters. From staff and wire reports

Shoppers like ‘Made in America,’ but price is determining factor BY HEATHER LONG Washington Post

Americans may want “Made in America,” but price comes first. In survey after survey, Americans claim that they care whether their shoes, toasters or cellphones are American made. Their actual spending habits, however, tell a different story. American shoppers want a good deal. And when they shop, everything other than price tends to be a distant second on the list of priorities. A Reuters-Ipsos poll out this week found 69 percent of people surveyed said price was “very important” when they buy something. Only 32 percent said making sure something was made in the United States was “very important” to them. The poll was done online, but research consulting firms and other polls finds similar results. Walmart executives under-

stand price is king for most American consumers, and they’ve used that knowledge to build one of the world’s most valuable companies: “Our customers tell us that where products are made is most important second only to price,” a Walmart spokesman said when asked whether Americans cared if something was made in the United States, China or elsewhere. President Donald Trump brought a firetruck to the White House from Wisconsin this week to promote U.S. products. He jumped in the driver’s seat, grinning and giving a big thumbs up. Many Americans say they want to buy things made in the U.S.A. — but when asked if they would be willing to pay more for it, they reconsider. An Associated Press-GFK poll last year found nearly 75 percent of Americans prefer to purchase American-made goods, but only

30 percent were willing to pay more for them. Casey Bradford of Oklahoma knows that it is going to take a lot to change years of American shopping habits. He runs HomeGrown Manufacturing in Bixby, Okla., a 100 percent Americanmade clothing company. “I’m not doing this to become a multibillionaire. I’m doing this to bring back manufacturing,” Bradford said. A T-shirt made in China costs $1 or less wholesale, he says. His company can do it for about $3.50. Shipping costs are lower from Oklahoma than China, but it’s still a hefty premium. Still, Bradford said, the prices are close enough, especially on more custom-made items, that he has started to get inquiries from big brands such as L.L. Bean. They love the idea of American-made, but their first question is always: What’s the price?

Trump orders review of defense industry Too few suppliers may put U.S. at risk BY AYESHA RASCOE AND MIKE STONE reuters

WA S H I N GTO N • President Donald Trump signed on Friday an executive order initiating a broad “whole of government” review of the defense industrial base including labor and the defense supply chain. “There’s just one company in the U.S. that can repair propellers for Navy submarines,” Peter Navarro, the White House National Trade Council director, said as he explained the order to reporters. The review is intended to iden-

tify and address potential weak points in the U.S. defense manufacturing base including companies that could “go under,” leaving gaps in the supply chain for U.S. weapons systems, Navarro said. “This order recognizes that as the U.S. has loss of over 60,000 factories and more than 5 million manufacturing jobs since 2001, America’s defense industrial base is now facing increasing gaps in its capabilities,” he said. Certain types of militarygrade semiconductors and printed circuit boards have become endangered species, Navarro told reporters. Flat-panel displays for aircraft and the processing of rare earth elements “have left our shores entirely,” he said. “The ability of the U.S. to

manufacture and obtain goods critical to our national security could be hampered by an inability to obtain essential components, which may not themselves be directly related to national security,” said Alexander Gray, who works in the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy. The “Executive Order on Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States” will initiate the review which will be led by the Pentagon and conclude in 270 days, Navarro said. The review will be conducted in concert with other government agencies including the Labor Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

Evangelicals revel in their ‘unprecedented’ presidential access

FAITH PERSPECTIVES

Tragedy reminds us to cherish the children ANITA ANTON Mary, Mother of the Church

At Catholic churches, a Mass can be offered to pray for a loved one who dies. It is one way that we honor and remember. One parishioner, Alyssa Berry, expressed it this way: “It’s a way to let our loved ones know that we care for them, that they were important in our lives and we are praying for them.” Recently, I picked up a Mass card for a family who lost their 4-year-old son in a freak, tragic accident. His uncle and my son are on the same baseball team. I accompanied my son to the wake to pay our respects. The family organized the memorial to celebrate his short life. The room was filled with balloons depicting his favorite heroes. They included the Power Rangers, Cars, other action figures and Winnie the Pooh. Looking at the bear brought back memories of when we had bought our son a bear just like it. The family members wore shirts adorned with action figures and cartoon characters. The main color was red. His mother and father pointed out pictures that showed him at Baptism, sporting events and play time with his little sister. His mother told me that they were able to donate a lifesaving organ to another child in need. On the drive home, I pondered all the little children who came into my life: my best friends’ grandchildren, my sisters’ and brothers’ grandchildren, and my own children when they were little. I looked back over the years of trials and tribulation as my husband and I tried valiantly to keep our two children safe. We did the same things as other parents did: put safety latches on the cabinet doors, covers in the wall sockets, hooked up car seats in our automobile, read and researched before buying “safe toys.” Accidents still happened. One horrible incident involved a frayed lamp cord hidden behind a chair that my 3-year-old son managed to find during one his many forays into exploring small spaces. This led to a visit to the Emergency Room and a year of followup treatment. We were lucky. The burn healed.

The scars faded. He went on to other adventures, more trips to the ER. I wonder if it has something to do with being a boy? I thought of my childhood, growing up relatively unscathed. I always felt safe at home. Mom was a constant and reassuring presence; cooking, cleaning, and handing out love and discipline at the same time. My dad was more often the spontaneous parent. He would pull into the driveway and observe our backyard filled with children, his and the neighborhood’s. Everyone gravitated to our house. Dad would beckon to me, “Come on, Nene.” I raced around and over the mass of kids to the Buick. We headed to the Dairy Queen and Dad would purchase two bags full of Dilly Bars (do they still make them?). Later, the group would split up, some heading for home, my siblings going inside the house, chocolate smeared across our smiling faces. I remember my friends’ moms giving us rules when we played at their houses. At the fish frys, the dads cooking would yell at the kids to stay out of the kitchen away from the fryers and the hot grease. The moms would direct us to start carrying the dessert trays and handing them out; we were instructed to pick up the trash, bus the tables, and push in the chairs. Each parent was all our parents. It didn’t matter who said it. It was the simple fact that a parent told you. In Mark 10 we read: “And they brought to him young children, that he might touch them. And the disciples rebuked them that brought them. When Jesus saw, he was much displeased, and saith to them: Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God. Amen I say to you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall not enter into it. And embracing them, and laying his hands upon them, he blessed them.” How do we handle grief when it comes to the loss of a child? How do we find the answer for unexplainable tragedy? We offer prayer and support and comfort. We know our children are gifts from God. We just don’t know how long he will give them to us. Anton is a lifelong Catholic and holds a doctorate in Educational Studies from St. Louis University. Her parish is Mary, Mother of the Church, in south St. Louis County. She is a regular Faith Perspectives contributor on STLtoday.com/ religion

WASHINGTON • Squeezed among two dozen other evangelical supporters of the president, Southern Baptist Richard Land added his hand to the others reaching to pray for President Donald Trump. The July 10 Oval Office prayer session, which has been panned and praised, is just one example of the access Trump and his key aides have given to conservative Christian leaders — from an hourslong May dinner in the Blue Room to an all-day meeting this month in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door. “This is unlike anything we’ve experienced in our career or ministry — unprecedented access, unprecedented solicitation of opinions and viewpoints,” said Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Matthews, N.C., and a veteran at the intersection of religion and politics. But while religious conservatives are getting such intimate contact with the chief executive that they can literally “lay hands” on him, other faith leaders are being kept at arm’s length. Steven Martin, the communications director for the National Council of Churches, a group that includes mainline Protestant, Orthodox and historically black denominations, declared: “I’d absolutely say we’re frozen out.” Minhaj Hassan, a spokesman for Islamic Relief USA, said: “In the first six months of the Trump presidency, there hasn’t been any direct communication with the White House.” Randall Balmer, chairman of Dartmouth College’s religion department, calls the political shift in the White House “a whole different center of gravity religiously” from the recent past. In the 1960s, “representatives of the National Council of Churches could pretty much knock on the door almost any time and be granted access, and now you just don’t have that any longer,” he said. Melissa Rogers, who was director of the White House Office of Faith-based

and Neighborhood Partnerships under President Barack Obama, said it was “very common” for various offices to hold briefings for a diverse range of U.S. religious communities. “That certainly included evangelicals, Catholics, mainline Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and others,” said Rogers, whose former position hasn’t been filled by the Trump administration. In the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan welcomed conservative Christian leaders Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell Sr. to the White House. But political scientist Paul Kengor called Reagan “a Protestant with a healthy respect for non-Protestant faiths, especially Catholic and Jewish faiths.” Reagan had relationships with Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa and Cardinal Terence Cooke and “carried in his jacket a list of Soviet Jews held in prison or denied the right to emigrate.” Today, some groups outside the fold of conservative Christianity report a limited amount of communication with the 6-month-old Trump administration. They describe connections with Cabinet-level offices, such as Hindus with the Justice Department and Baha’is with the State Department. Officials of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops “frequently send letters to relevant departments and agencies on vital issues of the day,” said Judy Keane, spokeswoman for the bishops’ conference. Some of those letters differed with the administration on capping the number of refugees and withdrawing from the Paris climate change agreement. Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, said leaders of the Reform movement had met with administration officials and voiced their concerns about issues such as the two-state solution and religious pluralism in Israel. There have been a few examples of interfaith approaches by the Trump White House, such as when Vice President Mike Pence praised the contributions of Sikhs in a June speech in his home state of Indiana.

POSTCARD FROM MOUND CITy • By DAN MARTIN

Look out, real killers

O.J. Simpson won parole Thursday, nearly nine years into a 33-year sentence he received for a 2007 motel robbery that included two counts of kidnapping. A four-member panel of the Nevada parole board heard him say he’s led a “mostly conflict-free life” and voted unanimously to release him in October. Thus ends another strange chapter in the life and career of a man who was once an idol to millions. A star running back in college and the NFL, Simpson parlayed his good looks and genial personality into a post-football career as an actor, game analyst and commercial pitchman. Then came his arrest for the double murders in June 1994 of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, the low-speed chase in the white Ford Bronco, the trial that riveted and divided the nation and the acquittal that shocked it. His prison term stemmed from a bizarre 2007 plot to invade a Las Vegas hotel room and steal sports memorabilia that he claimed were rightfully his. Simpson became a model prisoner and his parole was not unexpected. Simpson won’t be a pauper — he has millions available from the NFL and Screen Actors Guild pensions. He owes Goldman’s family $33.5 million from a 1997 civil judgment, but retirement benefits are exempt. He will have plenty of time and money to pursue the real killers. That, or to play golf.

Kermit’s comeuppance Who would have thought that Kermit the Frog would be a prima donna? Miss Piggy, sure, but Kermit? Last fall the Disney Co., which acquired the Muppets franchise from the family of creator Jim Henson in 2004, fired Steve Whitmire, who had been the voice of Kermit since Henson’s death in 1990. This week Whitmire spoke out, denying Disney’s allegations that he’d been a difficult employee. He was fired for “unacceptable business conduct,” Disney said, code for “he had a higher estimate of his importance than we did.” Moral of the story: When The Frog takes on The Mouse, take the Mouse and give the points.

Unpopularity pays Whatever else you can say about Donald Trump, he can spin straw into gold. With the president’s popularity at a low ebb in Canada, the new owners of the 65-story Trump Hotel and Tower in Toronto decided that they’d like his name off the building. Trump had licensed his brand to the hotel when it opened in 2012 and the Trump Organization managed it at its usual high level of glitz. But it had become a site of frequent protests and some tenants were unhappy. The Trump Organization, in whose earnings the president still shares, will be paid $6 million to go away. We wonder if the Emoluments Clause applies.

Foster friendly Gov. Eric Greitens earned his spurs this week as the political maverick he calls himself. It takes courage to tell Missouri’s 6 million citizens that you made a mistake and you’re going to fix it. On Thursday, he reversed his cuts to Missouri foster care providers, calling the 1.5 percent rate reduction he allowed to take effect July 1 “a mistake.” “Missouri should not take money from them (children in foster care) and their families, not even in these tough budget times,” Greitens wrote in a Facebook post. Foster parents felt like they had been betrayed when the governor let the cuts take effect. Greitens and his wife, Sheena, had made foster care a signature issue. The 13,000 children in Missouri’s foster care system are “both in law and spirit, Missouri’s children. Our kids,” Greitens wrote on Facebook. He showed that he could be a fighter for the rights of at least some in need of a champion.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Need factual, unbiased crime reporting Reading the Post-Dispatch daily, reporting trends clarify a perceptible prejudice that negates equality and fairness. One can’t escape frequent evidence of two illustrations, one relating to race and another to who is armed or unarmed. As to race, if an officer is white and the suspect is black and wounded or killed in an altercation, the officer’s and the wounded or killed suspect’s race is always reported. If the officer is black and the suspect or victim is white or of another race, it is generally not reported. On July 18, two Associated Press articles appeared. A white Texan policeman was indicted in killing a black teenager; a Minneapolis policeman killed an Australian woman. The latter was a black policeman and a white woman. When a white or Asian victim is shot or killed by a black suspect, race is rarely reported as an issue; it is always an issue if a white suspect and a black victim are involved. The second relates to police altercations. If the suspect is black and unarmed, despite mitigating circumstances, being shot by a police officer while unarmed is always emphasized. Thousands of unarmed victims are shot and killed nationally. The fact that most victims were unarmed too ought to be noteworthy. This is not to justify shooting an unarmed person. Fair reporting will equally report in every case the race of both, regardless of being the victim or the police officer. It’s also time to emphasize murdered victims were unarmed. Justice demands unbiased, factual reporting. Helen Louise Herndon • Kirkwood

Caring in Ferguson The Centene Corp., Schnucks and People’s Health are about to improve life for people in Ferguson, making access to urgent and primary health care easier for people by opening a $1.3 million facility inside a Schnucks grocery there. Centene, a managed care company headquartered in Clayton, is partnering with the Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers to open the center, where an array of services will be offered, including immunizations and dental care for adults and children. Centene anticipates more than 8,000 people will use the facility annually. Schnucks is donating the space and Centene is building it out. Michael Neidorff, Centene CEO, said the company was moved to invest in the community following the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer. “What happened in Ferguson could happen in 150 cities in this country,” Neidorff told the PostDispatch. “I decided two years ago that it would be very important in St. Louis to take leadership and show it’s not what happened, it’s what you do about it.”

Dog sauce? Puh-leeze There are a few things you don’t do to Chicagoans, and one of them is mess with Chicago-style hot dogs. They are works of art and not to be trifled. Sport peppers and grilled onions are acceptable options. Mustard, dill pickle spear, neon-green relish, tomatoes, celery salt and raw onions are musts. But ketchup is a no-no. Don’t even mention it. So when the Heinz company came up with a new “Chicago Dog Sauce,” to celebrate National Hot Dog Day on Wednesday (yes, that’s a fake holiday), Chicagoans were having none of it. It’s just ketchup, they sneered on social media, radio talk shows and in newspaper reports. Maybe they were right but it sure got Heinz and hot dogs some attention. Never a bad thing in the advertising world.

Lawmakers rightly condemn persecution of Falun Gong practitioners When I went to Washington, D.C., for the first time in July 1999, I never thought that I would end up returning every year for the next 18 years. No, this was not my summer vacation. I have been traveling to the capital every summer to raise awareness about the persecution of Falun Gong, a peaceful mindbody practice, which was unlawfully banned by the Chinese Communist Party on July 20, 1999. I started to practice Falun Gong in 1998. I experienced significant health improvement and gained a sense of inner peace from following Falun Gong’s values of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.” It broke my heart to see my fellow practitioners being brutally persecuted in China. Although the persecution is still going on, my D.C. trips along with other volunteers from Missouri and many other states have been fruitful, and the support we have received has been very encouraging. Last summer, Congress unanimously passed a resolution condemning the heinous, state-sponsored organ harvesting from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners. Six of our congressmen and congresswomen co-sponsored this resolution. Four other

resolutions for Falun Gong were passed by Congress in the past 18 years. On the state level, the Missouri House of Representatives passed a resolution in April that mirrors the congressional resolution in the condemning China’s organ harvesting crimes. I was touched when my state senator, Dave Schatz, dedicated his weekly column in April to the topic of organ harvesting and my state representative, Bruce DeGroot, informed his constituents about the resolution and the persecution in his newsletter. As I headed to Washington, D.C., this week, I’m truly hoped this was the last time I went to raise awareness about the persecution. I look forward to making a new kind of trip in the near future: one in celebration of the great deeds of those inside and outside China that successfully upheld human dignity and freedom.

Profiteers hurt health care My uncle was a doctor who opened his practice in the 1950s. He was a great doctor, beloved by all his patients — worked for over 40 years in rural Missouri. If folks couldn’t afford the medical care they needed, he gave it to them anyway. They were always grateful. If they couldn’t pay with money, maybe they would give him some chickens, which he accepted in lieu of money. He told me that in the early days of medicine, hospitals were sponsored by churches. St. John’s Mercy was a Catholic hospital funded by the Catholic church. Missouri Baptist was funded by the Baptist church. Charges for medical services were always given to the patients, but they were only obligated to pay according to their ability to pay. On Sundays the churches would pass around the collection plate for “the poor people in the hospital.” According to my uncle, things didn’t start going downhill until big business realized it could make a profit on hospitalization. In the late 1990s, he was afraid it would only get worse. He didn’t think things would get better until we went back to the way things used to be, and give the hospitals back to the churches. But that would require the profiteers to give up the ability to make money on some one else’s misfortune. He lamented that big business is just too greedy to stop. Alan Karraker • Wentzville

Ballot initiative aims to eliminate gerrymandering One issue about which Republicans and Democrats agree is halting partisan gerrymandering. Both Ohio Gov. John Kasich a Republican, and Joe Biden, a Democrat, want it eliminated. Barack Obama stated in his book,“We don’t select politicians; they select us.” Gerrymandering gives one party an advantage over the other, which causes many of legislative districts to be noncompetitive. Clean Missouri is circulating a petition to put an initiative on the November 2018 ballot that eliminates gerrymandering as well as restricting members of the Legislature to: • Campaign contributions of $2,000 for each representative and $2,500 for each Senate race. • Two-year waiting period after leaving office before becoming a paid lobbyist. • Gifts by paid lobbyists not to exceed $5. • No political fundraising on state property. These are ways we can get our desire for better government enacted. If we wait for legislators to do it, it will never be accomplished. This initiative could move Missouri from near the bottom of the ethical scale to the top ethical state in the union. John Bohney • Chesterfield Read more letters online at STLtoday.com/letters

Unusual side effect: Gray hair darkens for patients on cancer drugs

New Jersey raises smoking age to 21

Gov. Chris Christie signed a law Friday making New Jersey the third state to raise its smoking age to 21. Christie, a Republican, cited the strain on the health care system caused by tobacco-related illnesses. He also noted his mother had died from the effects of smoking. Previously, the age was 19. The restriction applies to tobacco products and electronic smoking devices. Hawaii and California are the only other states where the smoking age is 21. Canyon of the Ancients off monument review list • Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says he is removing Colorado’s Canyons of the Ancients from a list of national monuments being reviewed nationwide. Zinke said Friday that when he and President Donald Trump launched the review of 27 national monuments designated by previous administrations, “we absolutely realized that not all monuments are the same and that not all monuments would require modifications.” Zinke called Canyons of the Ancients “gorgeous land” but said its Native American archaeological sites were even more important. The site spans thousands of years, and Zinke said federal protections “will help us preserve this site for a thousand more years.”

CHICAGO • Cancer patients’

gray hair unexpectedly turned youthfully dark while taking novel drugs, and it has doctors scratching their heads. Chemotherapy is notorious for making hair fall out, but the 14 patients involved were all being treated with new immunotherapy drugs that work differently and have different side effects. A Spanish study suggests that may include restoring hair pigment, at least in patients with lung cancer. With the first patient, “we thought it could be an isolated case,” said Dr. Noelia Rivera, a dermatologist at Autonomous University of Barcelona. But she said the research team found the same thing when they asked other patients for photos from before treatment. The 14 cases were among 52 lung cancer patients being followed to see whether they developed bad side effects from the drugs — Keytruda, Opdivo and Tecentriq. Though most patients did not have a color change, the 14 cases suggest it’s not an isolated finding. In 13 patients, hair turned darkish brown or black. In one patient, it turned partly black. In an odd twist, the same drugs have been linked with hair losing color in patients with another cancer, melanoma. All but one of the 14 patients in the Spanish study responded better to treatment than other patients did, suggesting that darkening hair might be an indication that the drugs are working, the researchers said. Rivera said they were continuing the study to search for an explanation. “It’s a fascinating report — one of those things that comes out of the blue,” said Dr. June Robinson, a Northwestern University professor and editor of the medical journal JAMA Dermatology, which published the study online this month.

Hundreds march Thursday from the site of Justine Damond’s shooting to a Minneapolis park to honor Damond, who died July 15 in an encounter with police after she called 911.

Council, mayor cite ‘systematic problem’ with police BY LIBOR JANY, ANDY MANNIX AND ERIC ROPER Star Tribune

WASHINGTON • At the request of the mayor, Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau announced her resignation Friday afternoon in the aftermath of the officer-involved shooting of Justine Damond, a 40-year-old Australian woman. One week ago, Damond called 911 about 11:30 p.m. to report a potential sexual assault near her home in south Minneapolis, and one of the responding officers, Mohamed Noor, shot her from the squad car. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the shooting. Mayor Betsy Hodges said she would nominate Assistant Chief Medaria Arradondo, a 28-year veteran of the force, to replace Harteau. “Last Saturday’s tragedy as well as some other recent incidents have caused me to engage in deep reflection,” Harteau said in a statement. “The recent incidents do not reflect the training and procedures we developed as a department. Despite the MPD’s many accomplishments under my leadership over these years and my love for the city, I have to put the communities we serve first.” The killing of Damond, along with other high-profile officer-involved shootings, has generated public skepticism about the department and training, and has called into question why the officers weren’t recording the shooting with body cameras. Harteau tried to distance the department from the incident in a news conference Thursday, calling the shooting “one individual’s actions” and not representative of the force. She agreed that the officers should have been

recording and said Noor shooting over his partner and out the window of the squad car is “not how we train.” Harteau has also endured criticism for being out of the state and not returning for four days after the shooting. Harteau said Thursday she was getting regular updates on the case from her staff. Hodges issued a statement immediately after the resignation, saying she has “lost confidence in the chief’s ability to lead us further — and from the many conversations I’ve had with people around our city, especially this week, it is clear that she has lost the confidence of the people of Minneapolis as well.” Protesters have been critical of Hodges as well as Harteau since the shooting. Arradondo served as the face of the department over the past week while Harteau was out of the state. Hodges lauded his leadership, saying, “The experience of working closely with him over the past week, which has been so hard on everyone in Minneapolis, has solidified my confidence.” In a meeting Friday, Hodges told a City Council member that she had the votes on the executive committee to fire Harteau, and planned to fire her or ask her to resign, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the conversation. Sources say the conversation began when City Council member Linea Palmisano called for a change in leadership to address a “systematic problem” with police at a council meeting Friday. Several council members said at the meeting and in subsequent interviews that they would like to oust Harteau or amend the city charter to give the council oversight of the department.

At least 15,000 freed mink found dead • A Minnesota mink farm says 15,000 mink have died after unknown culprits released them from their cages earlier this week. The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office says that of approximately 38,000 mink released, 14,000 of the animals are unaccounted for. Sheriff Don Gudmundson has said he believes animal rights activists released the mink from Lang Fur Farms, although no one has been arrested. The mink have died from heat, stress and dehydration, Fur Commission USA Executive Director Michael Whelan said. The domesticated animals aren’t equipped to live outside the farm environment where they receive food and water daily, he said. Ohio prosecutors push for OK on executions • Ohio state attorneys argued on Friday against delaying three executions on grounds that the condemned killers have little chance of legal victory and repeated postponements are draining state resources. The state’s first execution in more than three years is scheduled for Wednesday. Death row inmate Ronald Phillips is scheduled to die for the 1993 rape and killing of his girlfriend’s daughter, 3, in Akron. He and two other inmates seek more time from the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal Ohio’s lethal injection method. Their attorneys argue the procedure’s first drug, the sedative midazolam, creates an unconstitutional risk of pain. Plot to kill husband ends with 16-year prison sentence • A former Florida escort convicted of trying to hire a hit man to murder her newlywed husband was sentenced Friday to 16 years in prison, perhaps ending a drawn-out case that drew notice for its startling videos and salacious characters. Circuit Judge Glenn Kelley imposed the sentence on Dalia Dippolito, who was convicted last month of solicitation of first-degree murder. The Boynton Beach woman was recorded in 2009 as she plotted to kill Michael Dippolito, telling an undercover agent she was “5,000 percent sure” she wanted her husband dead. Plane makes hard landing in N.Y. river • A seaplane made a hard landing in New York’s East River on Friday and passengers including TV producer Bill Lawrence, the creator of “Scrubs,” were rescued. The plane went down near East 20th Street and FDR Drive shortly after 5:30 p.m. The Fire Department said 10 people were on board. All of them declined medical attention.

Provisions in health bill may be in jeopardy • The Senate parliamentarian added a complication to Republican hopes for their floundering health care bill, ruling the GOP would need to win an allbut-impossible 60 votes to retain anti-abortion provisions in the measure, Democrats said Friday. Democrats said the parliamentarian decided another provision providing Medicaid savings for upstate New York counties would also need 60 votes to survive. Republicans contested Democrats’ description, saying the parliamentarian’s views were guidance only. They said that the legislation’s wording was subject to change and that efforts would continue to craft provisions in ways that would pass parliamentary muster if their Obamacare replacement bill is eventually brought up for a vote. Republicans have a 52-48 Senate majority.

JERUSALEM • Escalating

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Palestinians run away from tear gas in Jerusalem on Friday. A dispute over metal detectors at a Jerusalem shrine led to clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police.

of Israel’s rescue service MDA, said an off-duty soldier next door heard screams, rushed to the home and shot the attacker through a window. Bin said the attacker was wounded and evacuated to hospital. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced that he was freezing ties with Israel, dealing a blow to efforts by President Donald Trump’s administration to try to renew dormant peace talks. Abbas said contacts with Israel would be suspended on “all levels.” It was not clear if this means security coordination between

Israeli troops and Abbas’ forces will be halted. At issue in the current round of violence are metal detectors Israel installed at the Jerusalem shrine earlier this week, in response to a deadly attack by Arab gunmen there. The metal detectors are perceived by the Palestinians as an encroachment on Muslim rights and portrayed by Israel as a needed security measure after the attack that killed two Israeli policemen. Earlier Friday, several thousand Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank clashed with Israeli

troops, burning tires or throwing stones. Troops fired live rounds, rubber bullets and tear gas. Three Palestinians were killed and several dozen hospitalized with injuries. Israel faced growing criticism from the Muslim world, and thousands staged anti-Israel protests after Friday prayers in Jordan and Yemen. Turkey and Egypt condemned the violence. The confrontations in the Holy Land could escalate in coming days, as both sides dig in. Israel said the metal detectors would remain in place. Lawmaker Tzachi Hanegbi, a confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said Israel would not surrender to what he said were “violence and incitement” by those “attempting to drag us into a religious war.” Jerusalem’s top Muslim cleric, Mohammed Hussein, said protests, including mass street prayers outside the shrine, would continue until the devices are removed. The shrine, revered by Muslims and Jews, sits at the emotional epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, symbolizing the rival religious and national narratives of the two sides.

3 Palestinians, 3 Israelis are killed as conflict intensifies at holy sites Israeli-Palestinian tension over the Holy Land’s most contested shrine boiled over into violence on Friday that killed six people — three Palestinians in street clashes in Jerusalem and three Israelis in a stabbing attack at a West Bank settlement. After nightfall, a Palestinian sneaked into a home in the Israeli settlement of Halamish in the West Bank and stabbed to death three Israelis, the head of Israel’s rescue service said. The military said the attacker apparently jumped over the fence and infiltrated the family’s home, surprising them as they ate the traditional Sabbath evening meal. It said the Palestinian killed a man and two of his children, while a woman was wounded and taken to a hospital. The man’s grandchildren were present but not harmed, it said. Israel TV’s Channel 10 said the assailant was in his late teens and had posted on Facebook that he was upset by the events at the shrine. Eli Bin, the head

WORLD DIGEST 2 dead, hundreds hurt during earthquake

A powerful earthquake shook beach resorts Friday in Greece and Turkey, killing two tourists when a building collapsed on a bar in the Greek island of Kos, and injuring nearly 500 others across the Aegean Sea region. Only a few miles apart, Kos and the Turkish resort of Bodrum were hit hours before dawn by the shallow undersea quake that caused a 2-foot sea swell and havoc among residents and thousands of vacationers. The U.S. Geological survey measured the quake as being of magnitude 6.7. Two men — from Turkey and Sweden — were killed when a collapsing wall smashed into a bar in Kos. Even in death, Dali’s mustache endures • Forensic experts in Spain have removed hair, nails and two long bones from Salvador Dali’s embalmed remains to aid a court-ordered paternity test that may enable a woman who says she is the surrealist artist’s daughter to claim part of Dali’s vast estate. Officials said Friday that the artist’s mummified remains were so well preserved that even his famous mustache had survived the passing of time and remained in “its classic shape of 10 past 10,” referring to the hands on a clock. Dali was buried in the Dali Museum Theater in the Spanish town of Figueres, his birthplace, when he died at 84 in 1989. The exhumation that began Thursday followed a long-standing claim by Pilar Abel, 61, a tarot card reader, who says her mother had an affair with Dali. Fine for lemonade stand leaves bitter taste • A British man and his young daughter have gained international attention for being fined for selling lemonade. Andre Spicer said his 5-year-old daughter was left in tears after local council officers fined her 150 pounds ($195) for selling lemonade without a license near their home in London. The girl was selling homemade lemonade to fans attending the Lovebox dance festival when she was fined. Spicer wrote about the incident for the Daily Telegraph and garnered hundreds of comments and shares online. Local officials said Friday the fine would be canceled. They have apologized to the family. Qatar welcomes talks to end Gulf feud • Qatar’s ruling emir said on Friday that his embattled Gulf nation remained open to dialogue with four Arab countries that have isolated it, but that any resolution to the crisis must respect his country’s sovereignty. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani made the comments in his first televised speech since a diplomatic dispute among the U.S. allies erupted more than a month ago. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and severed air, land and sea links with it on June 5 after accusing it of backing extremist groups. Qatar denies the charge. Cholera epidemic in Yemen expected to worsen • The U.N. health agency and an international aid organization warned on Friday that Yemen’s cholera epidemic, the world’s worst since Haiti’s 2010 outbreak, is likely to worsen in the rainy season. The United Kingdom-based OXFAM group said cholera in Yemen was now “the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year.” The warnings came a day after the World Health Organization reported nearly 370,000 suspected cases of cholera and more than 1,800 deaths since April 27.

Nice win at Wrigley won’t fix problems

Cards put on notice, use big rally to beat Cubs

CALLED UP

CARSON KELLY, CATCHER

BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-Dispatch

BENJAMIN HOCHMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Of course that happened. That’s how it goes with the 2017 Cardinals (and I suppose, how it went with the 2016 Cardinals, as well). They lose a game infuriatingly, then they win the next one stupefyingly. Of course that happened, because that’s how it happens — when you’re a .500-type team. Friday’s victory at Chicago — featuring the greatest Cards inning since the 11th in Game 6 — resuscitated St. Louis. It was about as close to a must-win game as this team has faced. It was Carlos Martinez’s start, with his club coming off two terrible losses. Oh, and the season in the balance. And the game was at Wrigley, of all places. And the Cards won the mustwin. So, of course, everyone is feeling just a tad better about the Cardinals today. Which means, of course, that “Thursday afternoon feeling” should return to your life. Soon. You can’t trust this team in long stretches. The defense and bullpen catch up to them. The lack of an offensive fulcrum catches up to them. Throw in some bad baserunning and untimely injuries and a tough upcoming schedule? These can be some maddening men. As for Friday, it was June 9 all over again. That day, John Mozeliak made a passionate speech to the media about accountability. And then the Birds won a muchneeded ballgame. Well, on Friday in Chicago, Mo spoke to reporters, including our paper’s beat writer, Derrick Goold. And the Cards executive was even more fiery than he was June 9, back in his Cards GM days. Mo didn’t dance around anything, and some executives of other teams would. He talked about possibly needing to shake up the attitude and culture. In June, they got a new third base coach and released a third baseman. In July, he’s talking attitude and culture — with the trade deadline looming. And that’s what’s perhaps most disheartening. Let’s say the Cards do make a big trade and acquire, say, Marcell Ozuna? Does this infusion change the team leadership? The mindset? The dedication to fundamentals? No, that’s not how it works. It gets you some offensive production from an All-Star starter. Maybe it’s enough to salvage the season — but does that salvage See HOCHMAN • Page B3

CHICAGO • The familiar acrid taste of a third walk-off loss on this road trip and yet another defensive mishap had not been flushed from the Cardinals by Friday despite a new day and a new city, prompting executive John Mozeliak to suggest perhaps a “clubhouse shakeup” was necessary in the near future. Something that could change the “attitude,” the atmosphere, or the direction. It took eight innings to go from talking about the culture to shock. The Cardinals, trailing by a run, unloaded on the rival Cubs for a nine-run bonanza in the eighth inn i n g Fr i - CARDINALS 11 day for an 4 11-4 romp CUBS at Wrigley Field.

That season-high cloudburst cleared any haze – or fear of relapse – left by Thursday’s loss to the Mets in the ninth inning when a pitcher didn’t cover first base, allowing the winning run to score. “That was a beautiful thing to watch,” manager Mike Matheny said. “I saw a little bit of everything (in the dugout). I saw some angry. I saw some kind of like they got the wind kicked out of you. Everybody needed a little bit of something. That eighth inning provided a lot of wind in everybody’s sail.” For the moment, it gave the Cardinals their breath. The Cubs had not lost since the All-Star break and had made their overdue advance on firstplace Milwaukee. A 3-4 start to this road trip has dropped the Cardinals into fourth place, 4½ games out. This three-game visit to Wrigley presented the front office a possible tipping point as the July trade deadline approaches. A sweep, and the Cardinals would narrow their chase to half a game behind the Cubs. Be swept, and the Cardinals would wallow 6½ behind the Cubs. If Mozeliak and his baseball operations staff wanted a sign, they got one they’ve seen too often when Trevor Rosenthal’s mistake in Queens cost the game Thursday. Mozeliak was blunt in his view of how unacceptable the trend has become. See CARDINALS • Page B5

With a short game as sharp as it has been all year, and a 3-wood that turned out a lot better than it looked and led to an eagle, Spieth seized control with a 1-under 69 that gave him a two-shot lead over Matt Kuchar going into the weekend.

Last year, it was hard to turn on a television here in August without seeing an NFL preseason game. Even though the Rams scattered for Los Angeles, the local airwaves featured exhibition offerings from the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chicago Bears and the NFL’s slate of nationally televised games. There are eight nationally televised games on this year’s NFL preseason schedule, including an Aug. 26 primetime contest between the Los Angeles Chargers and Stan Kroenke’s LA Rams (7 p.m., KMOV, Channel 4). Otherwise, St. Louis will be a Chiefs town in terms of preseason football. The Chiefs announced in early May that they were renewing their contract to televise their preseason games in St. Louis on KMOV, the local CBS affiliate.

Spurs have deal with Gasol • A source said that Pau Gasol has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the San Antonio Spurs. The 7-foot Spaniard and the Spurs came to agreement on a deal that is partially guaranteed for the third season.

Steady diet of Chiefs set for TV televising their preseason games here this season. Last year, the NFL waived regulations regarding the St. Louis market as part of its preseason broadcast equation. In other words, it was open to anyone who wanted to televise preseason games. But that waiver was lifted this year, and that precludes the Bears from televising preseason games here. “Every team that operates in a state, they get exclusive rights to that state’s borders,” Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in an interview last year. “So that gives us St. Louis. When the Rams were there, they got a 75-mile radius we couldn’t touch. Because that was their market. And we had a 75-mile radius around Kansas City that the Rams couldn’t touch.” Now, with last year’s waiver lifted, the Chiefs have all of Missouri to themselves, at least in the preseason. Even so, things don’t change once the regular-season hits. At that time, it’s up to the local stations which NFL games they show (other than the nationally televised primetime games.) The Chiefs open preseason play Aug. 11 against San Francisco in an 8 p.m. kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium. The rest of their preseason schedule: • Saturday, Aug. 19 at Cincinnati, 6 p.m. • Friday, Aug. 25 at Seattle, 7 p.m. • Thursday, Aug. 31 vs. Tennessee, 7:30 p.m. (Kickoffs are listed in Central time.) The guy who wore the Kansas City Chiefs tie to the O.J. Simpson parole hearing is Adam Endel.

Slam win another title

Kyrie Irving wants the stage for himself. Cleveland’s All-Star point guard has asked the Cavaliers to trade him, two sources told the Associated Press on Friday. Irving made the request last week to owner Dan Gilbert, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting. Irving’s appeal was first reported by ESPN. A four-time All-Star, Irving has spent six seasons with the Cavs, who selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in 2011. The 25-yearold has overcome injury issues and blossomed into one of the league’s elite point guards and biggest stars. And now that he’s finally established himself playing alongside LeBron James, Irving wants out. He’s under contract for two more seasons with Cleveland (he has a player option in 2020), but the Cavs could be inclined to move Irving now and begin another rebuild around James, who can opt out of his contract next

He’s a native of Knob Noster, Mo., a 1989 graduate of the University of Central Missouri, and yes, a longtime fan of the Chiefs. Endel is a member of the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners, which granted Simpson’s parole after the former football star spent nearly nine years in prison for robbery. Endel’s choice of necktie only added to the circus atmosphere of the nationally televised parole hearing. “It was one of those little things I figured someone might spot from Kansas City,” Endel told sports columnist Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star. “But I didn’t realize it was going to blow up that much. It’s crazy now.” Endel said his office is filled with Chiefs and Royals memorabilia. But no, he doesn’t have a Royals tie.

IT’S THAT TIME

Rookies reported across the NFL this week for training camp for many teams. Veterans begin filing in next week. But in the case of Arizona and Dallas, they’re already getting started. The Cardinals’ full squad reported Friday; the Cowboys’ full squad reports Saturday. Those two teams get started early because they’re squaring off in the Hall of Fame Game in 12 days — Thursday, Aug. 3 in Canton, Ohio. The rest of the league opens preseason play a week later.

LOCAL LINE

NFL rosters are at 90 players per team this time of year, and they’re teeming with area products. From Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott (John Burroughs) to Baltimore wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (Kirkwood High, Missouri), there are 84 players on NFL rosters who are either from the St. Louis are,

or attended college in Missouri or the southern half of Illinois. All 32 teams have at least one local or regional player on their training camp roster, and you’ll never guess who has the most. That would be the Los Angeles Rams, with seven such players. Safety Maurice Alexander (Eureka), cornerback Michael Jordan (Hazelwood Central), wide receiver Paul McRoberts (Soldan) and cornerback Aarion Penton (CBC) all played their high school ball in St. Louis. The Rams’ camp roster also includes cornerback E.J. Gaines (Missouri), defensive end Matt Longacre (Northwest Missouri State) and kicker Greg Zuerlein (Missouri Western).

GETTING HIS KICKS

During his 11 seasons with the St. Louis Rams, Jeff Wilkins picked up the nickname “Money.” Nearly a decade has passed since he last kicked in 2007, but historical perspective is showing that was a well-earned moniker. As pointed out by Pro Football Journal, Wilkins ranks among the best all-time both in long-distance field goal accuracy and success rate for onside kicks. When it comes to long-distance field goal accuracy, Wilkins ranks fifth all-time in 50-yard plus kicks. Wilkins, who also kicked for Philadelphia and San Francisco before coming joining the Rams in 1997, made 26 of 36 attempts from 50 yards or more over his career, or 72.2 percent. The most accurate long-distance kicker is Matt Prater, still doing his thing for Detroit. Prater has made 36 of 45 kicks from 50 yards-plus, or 80 percent.

The St. Louis Slam scored three first-quarter touchdowns and went on to a 42-15 victory over the Tampa Bay Inferno in the Women’s Football Alliance Division II championship game Friday night in Pittsburgh. The win gives the Slam (10-1) back-to-back national titles. The Slam, who also won a championship in 2009, beat Tampa Bay 38-7 in the 2016 final. Jaime Gaal threw for three touchdowns, two to Kaylee Neutzling and another to Danielle Price. Taylor Hay ran for a pair of scores, with fullback Mary Altipeter rushing for the other Slam TD.

TOUR DE FRANCE

Late move earns stage win

St. LOuIS POSt-dISPatCH • B3

BASEBALL NOTEBOOK

Boasson Hagen’s homework pays off after he finished second twice ASSOCIATED PRESS

SALON-DE-PROVENCE, FRANCE • After two second-place finishes,

Edvald Boasson Hagen finally got a stage victory at this Tour de France. Chris Froome and the other top riders took it easy, saving themselves for their last big fight this weekend. Boasson Hagen, from Norway, caught the right breakaways on the longest stage and used all of his guile and strength to hold off chasers in the final section Friday. Boasson Hagen was part of a 20man group that Froome and Team Sky gave freedom to escape from the peloton because none of them presented a threat to his overall lead. After two energy-sapping days of climbs in the Alps, Froome and his rivals had their sights set instead on the time trial Saturday in Marseille that will determine the podium order before the race ends in Paris on Sunday. At the finish of Stage 19 in Salonde Provence, Boasson Hagen and German rider Nikias Arndt went right around a roundabout while others went left. Their route proved shorter. Capitalizing on that slight lead, Boasson Hagen left Arndt behind with a quick acceleration and used his strength on the flat to

power to the finish. Arndt placed second, five seconds back. Third-placed Jens Keukeleire was among those who went left around the roundabout and immediately realized they’d made a mistake, as Boasson Hagen pulled away. “That’s when it struck me: We should have taken right,” Keukeleire said. “He’s one of those riders, give him 10 meters and he’s gone.” It was Boasson Hagen’s third career stage win at the Tour, after his first two in 2011. He said he did his homework, studying the stage finish and identifying the shorter route around the roundabout. “I was hunting for opportunities, and then the roundabout arrived,” he said. “I understood that going right would be quicker.” Froome’s group, which included the main race contenders, was still riding as Boasson Hagen celebrated his win. The peloton eventually rolled in at a leisurely place more than 12 minutes after Boasson Hagen claimed the first stage win for the Dimension Data team at this tour. The overall standings remained unchanged, with Froome leading French rider Romain Bardet by 23 seconds and Rigoberto Uran of Colombia by 29 seconds.

With no major difficulties, the 222.5-kilometer (138-mile) stage from Embrun in the Alps offered no real opportunity for Froome’s rivals to claw back time. Instead, they and Froome settled for a quiet ride while the 20 in front hunted the stage victory. “We could just sit on the wheels and recover a little bit,” Froome said. “Everyone was quite happy to sit back.” That breakaway group split again with 20 kilometers (12 miles) left. Boasson Hagen was among nine riders who ditched the others with a furious burst, leaving him in the right group to contest the stage victory. But among that leading nine, everyone but Arndt and Boasson Hagen then went left around the roundabout in the last three kilometers (under two miles), essentially eliminating themselves from the running. On Stage 7, Boasson Hagen lost to Marcel Kittel by mere millimeters in a photo finish at Nuits-SaintGeorges. He was also second on Stage 16 and third on Stages 11 and 14. “I didn’t have to do a photo finish this time,” he said. “I finally got my victory.”

One deal wouldn’t change culture

The Cardinals’ Magneuris Sierra hits a two-run single during the eighth inning against the Mets on Wednesday. HOCHMAN • FROM B1

the culture? Adam Wainwright goes Saturday. His past four decisions have all been wins — and all after Cards losses. Saturday’s game has similar importance to a bounce-back game — it would give St. Louis a series win at Chicago, keeping the season going. In the short term. Few Cardinals players conjure more emotion from Cardinals fans than Magneuris Sierra. He’s electric. He’s also sporadic. He can improve in every aspect of his game, even in fielding, which is his forte. I’m not as miffed as others that they sent him back down. Remember the fury regarding Randal Grichuk? Everyone saying the Cards must see it through with him and just let him play? Well, he’s back from the DL. Do you not want to see it through, since Sierra hit OK this past week? As for Sierra, “I don’t think it’s anything negative that he’s gone back down or anything, I think it’s just, that’s where they are with the club,” said Dann Bilardello, Sierra’s manager earlier this season at Class A Palm Beach. “His job is just to get ready, keep improving, keep swinging it and play good defense and he’ll get another opportunity and I’m sure he’ll be ready when that comes.” In the spring of 2016, I asked

these two questions: Who would have a better St. Louis career, Kolten Wong or Colton Parayko? And which No. 55 would have a better St. Louis career, Stephen Piscotty or Parayko? They still make for tough questions to answer. But after a sturdy second postseason, I’m leaning more and more toward Parayko. His confidence, his sturdiness, his fluid skating with the puck through the neutral zone. And he’s only 23. Blues brass and owner Tom Stillman deserve a shoutout for locking in Colt 55 this past week (average annual value of $5.5 million). The defenseman is here until 2022. The Blues have won three playoff rounds in the past two seasons (and taken the two they lost to six games). The Blackhawks haven’t won a round. It’s possible that Parayko’s salary could affect a smaller signing, as the Blues are now around $3 million from the salary cap. This could lead to some whining from the faithful about contractual management. But the Blues couldn’t blow this with Parayko. He’s one of the rare franchise-stalwarts you find on defense. And they found him in the third round, five years ago. A local nearly pitched a no-hitter. Pitching for the Astros’ Class AA team, Alex Winkelman went into the ninth inning with a no-hitter. He tallied two outs … and then al-

lowed a hit. A 21st-rounder in 2015, Winkelman is from Crystal City High School and pitched at Missouri State. He still got the win, his first of the season, striking out six and walking two in his gem for Corpus Christi. Winkelman has average numbers this season, sporting a 3.92 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP (walks and hits per innings pitched) for the club. And according to his Twitter feed, he’s probably happy about the Parayko signing, too — he’s a huge Blues fan. A little more on Wainwright. His stat line is indeed confusing — he’s 11-5 with a 5.08 ERA. With a team high in wins, he’s actually fifth in quality starts with seven (the other four starters have at least 10). But as for Waino’s ERA, if you take out his two terrible starts at Baltimore and Cincinnati (each with nine earned runs), his ERA is 3.72. So, weird year. But in the short term, No. 50 has pitched extremely well in four of his past five starts. Can we talk about Matt Bowman? Since June 1, the Cards reliever has allowed three runs. Three. And none since June 27. So, for June and July, the Princeton alum has a 1.42 ERA in 19 innings and 22 appearances. In a bullpen that’s been more bull than pen, Bowman has been resplendent.

Chicago third baseman Kris Bryant holds his finger after being injured diving into third base in the first inning against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

Finger could sideline Bryant for weekend Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant was out of the lineup with a finger injury Friday, and he could miss this weekend’s series against the Cardinals. Bryant sprained his left little finger on a headfirst slide in the first inning of Chicago’s 8-2 victory at Atlanta on Wednesday. X-rays were negative, but Bryant is experiencing soreness and there is some concern about gripping a bat. “We’re going to do this a day-by-day thing,” manager Joe Maddon said before Friday’s game. “I really don’t know. If I had to guess, probably not (Saturday), too, and possibly on Sunday. But I really don’t know.” The 25-year-old Bryant is hitting .275 with 19 homers and 40 RBIs in 88 games. He won the NL MVP award last year, helping the Cubs to their first World Series title since 1908. Javier Baez got the start at third for Chicago’s series opener against the Cardinals. (AP) Oakland is Cespedes’ dream • Well, on the bright side, Yoenis Cespedes didn’t walk into the wrong dugout Friday. Not that that’s any consolation to Mets fans. In the interview heard ’round Citi, Cespedes, speaking in English to the San Francisco Chronicle, said he wanted to end his career where he started: with the Oakland A’s. “I wish that happens,” he said, eschewing the interpreter he usually uses during interviews. “‘I don’t know how many years I’m going to play, but I’m going to play the last year of my career with Oakland. I don’t know if that’s possible or not, but that’s my goal.” Cespedes played 2 1/2 years in Oakland but is, of course, immersed in a fouryear, $110 million contract with the Mets, which expires in 2021. On Friday, he spoke with affection about the organization that gave him his start when he defected from Cuba, saying, “I still love the A’s … I love Oakland all the time.” Cespedes had special words for manager Bob Melvin. Words that, at least on the surface, made it seem as if his relationship with Terry Collins wasn’t quite as strong. “I tell my guys here all the time that he’s the best manager for me so far,” he said. “I don’t think there’s a better manager than Melvin.” The reporter who wrote the story, A’s beat writer Susan Slusser, later clarified that Cespedes didn’t mean he wanted to be with the A’s now. “To Mets fans a little irked about Cespedes story; he was clear he meant in many years, at end of career, he wants to play 1 year w/ A’s,” she tweeted. (Newsday) Logan goes on DL • Indians lefthander Boone Logan will miss significant time after being placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained muscle in his back, manager Terry Francona said. Logan fell to the ground and grabbed his left shoulder after throwing a pitch Thursday against San

Francisco. He was examined by a team trainer and walked to the dugout with a lat muscle injury. Logan underwent tests by Indians doctors and will seek a second opinion “He’s going to be down for a while,” Francona said. (AP) A’s sign slugger Carter • The Oakland Athletics have signed free agent slugger Chris Carter to a minor league deal and promoted righthander Frankie Montas and first baseman-outfielder Matt Olson to the majors. The A’s made the moves before playing the New York Mets on Friday night. Carter was recently cut by the New York Yankees after hitting .201 with eight home runs and 26 RBIs. He tied for the NL lead with 41 homers for Milwaukee last year but struggled as a first baseman and designated hitter for the Yankees. Carter was assigned to Triple-A Nashville. He played for Oakland in 2010-12 and hit 19 home runs. (AP) Cabrera leaves game • Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera had to leave the game against Minnesota in the fifth inning Friday night after taking a hard-hit grounder off the chest at first base. The ball off the bat of Robbie Grossman in the fourth inning took a big hop and bounced off Cabrera’s chest. He was able to gather himself and get the out at first base on his own, and he remained in the game to finish the inning. But when it was his turn to hit in the fifth, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus sent Andrew Romine to take his place. Cabrera was 0 for two with two strikeouts in the game. He started the night hitting .262 with 12 home runs and 47 RBIs. (AP) Braves make moves • The Braves released veteran lefthanded reliever Eric O’Flaherty to open a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Anthony Recker, who was brought up from Triple-A Gwinnett to fill in for a few days while catcher Kurt Suzuki is on the bereavement list. Suzuki hit a big tworun homer for the Braves in Thursday’s 6-3 win against the Dodgers, then left the team to attend his grandfather’s funeral this weekend in Hawaii, Suzuki’s home state. He’s expected to rejoin the Braves in Arizona for Monday’s series opener against the Diamondbacks. (Atlanta Journal Constitution) Miami tweaking bullpen • There are jobs to be won and new degrees of trust to be earned in the shifting Miami Marlins bullpen. With David Phelps gone, traded to the Mariners on Thursday, and closer AJ Ramos potentially to follow, with as many as a dozen teams expressing their interest to the Marlins, the late-inning dynamic of Miami’s relief corps is moving away from a template that had been in place much the past two years. For now, manager Don Mattingly said, righthander Junichi Tazawa will absorb some of the high-leverage opportunities Phelps leaves behind. (Sun Sentinel)

ROUNDUP Nola shuts down first-place Brewers Aaron Nola tied a career high with nine strikeouts in seven sharp innings, Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the reeling Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 on Friday night. Nola (7-6) allowed one run and five hits. He has six straight quality starts, going 4-1 and lowering his ERA from 4.76 to 3.38 in that span. The NL Central-leading Brewers have lost six in a row, and their lead over the defending World Series champion Cubs is only one game. The Phillies have won three straight games for only the third time this season, but they continue to possess the worst record in the majors. Brewers starter Matt Garza (4-5) gave up two runs and three hits in five innings. Galvis gave the Phillies a 2-0 lead in the first inning when he ripped his 11th homer into the right-field seats.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Astros 8, Orioles 7 • Rookie Yuli Gurriel had a careerhigh four hits, including a home run, and visiting Houston received a gritty pitching performance from Mike Fiers. Colin Moran hit his first major league homer and first triple for Houston, and Brian McCann also went deep. The Astros took an 8-2 lead into the ninth before Adam Jones hit a two-run double off James Hoyt and Jonathan Schoop homered with two on against Chris Devenski. After Chris Davis was thrown out trying to bunt against the shift, Ken Giles struck out Mark Trumbo to earn his 21st save. Indians 13, Blue Jays 3 • Edwin Encarnacion homered and drove in four runs against his former team, and host Cleveland broke open a close game with an eight-run seventh inning. Encarnacion, who played the last six seasons with Toronto before signing a three-year, $60 million contract with Cleveland in January, hit a leadoff home run in the second, broke a 3-all tie in the fifth with a two-run double and added an RBI single in the seventh. Rangers 4, Rays 3 • Elvis Andrus homered early and then snapped a 10th-inning tie with a two-out infield single that gave struggling Texas the win at Tampa Bay. Andrus, who homered in the first inning, hit a sharp grounder off Brad Boxberger (2-1) that forced Evan Longoria to make a diving stop. Pinch runner Delino Shields scored when the third baseman was unable to complete the throw to first base.

INTERLEAGUE

Rivera came all the way around to score on the play after third baseman Matt Chapman, trying to get Rivera at second, threw the ball away into right field for a costly error that made it 5-3.

1905: Weldon Henley of the Philadelphia Athletics pitched a no-hitter, defeating the St. Louis Browns 6-0 in the first game of a doubleheader. It was the highlight of Henley’s 4-11 season. 1906: Bob Ewing pitched the Cincinnati Reds to a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies without a single assist registered by his teammates. 1926: Cincinnati had four triples in an 11-run second inning as the Reds beat the Boston Braves, 13-1. Curt Walker hit two in the inning to tie an NL record for most triples in an inning. 1962: Floyd Robinson of the Chicago White Sox had six singles in six at-bats in a 7-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox. 1967: The Atlanta Braves used a major league record five pitchers in the ninth inning of a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The pitchers were Ken Johnson, Ramon Hernandez, Claude Raymond, Dick Kelley and Cecil Upshaw. 2000: Seattle’s 13-5 win over Texas was interrupted for 54 minutes when a rainstorm drenched fans at Safeco Field and the $517.6 million stadium’s roof wouldn’t close because of a computer problem. The roof finally began closing about 20 minutes later. 2004: Jason Schmidt’s 12-game winning streak ended as San Francisco fell to San Diego 9-4. Schmidt (12-3) was off from the outset in his worst start of the season, allowing eight runs, nine hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings. It was his first loss in 17 starts since April 21. 2006: Alfonso Soriano had three doubles, a triple and scored two runs to lead Washington to a 7-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. 2007: The New York Yankees had 25 hits in a 21-4 rout of Tampa Bay. The Yankees hit six home runs in the game, including two by Shelley Duncan. 2008: Florida’s Rick VandenHurk threw five hitless innings and combined with three relievers for a one-hit, 1-0 win over Atlanta. 2012: Seth Smith hit a tying homer in the ninth inning, Coco Crisp singled home the winning run in the 12th and the surging Oakland Athletics rallied from four runs down to stun the New York Yankees 5-4 and complete a four-game sweep. The Yankees had not been swept in a four-game series since May 2003 against Toronto. 2012: Albert Pujols and Bobby Wilson homered, and Mike Trout scored a run in his 14th consecutive game to set an AL rookie record, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-4 win over Texas. 2012: Ryan Doumit homered from both sides of the plate and drove in four runs to lead Minnesota to a 7-5 win over Kansas City. 2013: Ryan Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, was suspended for the rest of the season and the postseason, the start of sanctions involving players reportedly tied to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. The Milwaukee Brewers star accepted the 65-game ban, 15 games more than the one he avoided last year when an arbitrator overturned his positive test for elevated testosterone because the urine sample had been improperly handled.

Aaron Nola tied a career high with nine strikeouts in seven sharp innings, Freddy Galvis hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the reeling Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 on Friday night. Nola (7-6) allowed one run and five hits. He has six straight quality starts, going 4-1 and lowering his ERA from 4.76 to 3.38. The NL Central-leading Brewers have lost six in a row, and their lead over the defending World Series champion Cubs is only one game. The Phillies have won three straight games for only the third time this season, but they possess the worst record in the majors. Marlins 3, Reds 1 • Jose Urena pitched three-hit ball into the seventh and Christian Yelich drove in two runs as struggling Miami opened a six-game road trip with a rain-delayed 3-1 victory in Cincinnati. Pirates 13, Rockies 5 • Rookie Josh Bell had a career-high four hits and Andrew McCutchen had three hits and reached base five times as surging Pittsburgh won in Denver. D’backs 6, Nationals 5 • Arizona opened with 3 homers and beat visiting Washington on Brandon Drury’s walk-off single. Braves 12, Dodgers 3 • Jaime Garcia hit a grand slam and tossed 7 solid innings against MLB-best Los Angeles.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Astros 8, Orioles 7 • Rookie Yuli Gurriel had a careerhigh four hits and visiting Houston received a gritty pitching performance from Mike Fiers. Indians 13, Blue Jays 3 • Edwin Encarnacion homered and drove in four runs against his former team, and host Cleveland broke open a close game with an eight-run seventh inning. Rangers 4, Rays 3 • Elvis Andrus homered early and then snapped a 10th-inning tie with a two-out infield single that gave struggling Texas the win at Tampa Bay. Tigers 6, Twins 3 • Victor Martinez hit two home runs as Detroit won in Minnesota. Royals 7, White Sox 6 • Whit Merrifield’s sacrifice fly in the 10th lifted host Kansas City over Chicago. Yankees 5, Mariners 1 • Aaron Judge hit a three-run homer that nearly soared out of Safeco Field, and CC Sabathia allowed one run while pitching into the sixth as New York beat Seattle. Red Sox 6, Angels 2 • Chris Sale pitched six scoreless innings and Boston rode a five-run first inning to get the win in Anaheim. Mets 7, A’s 5 • Michael Conforto hit a pair of two-run homers and Jerry Blevins rescued the Mets’ bullpen with a five-out save as New York held off visiting Oakland. T.J. Rivera put the Mets ahead in the sixth with a two-run single that turned into a Little League home run. Rivera came all the way around after third baseman Matt Chapman, trying to get Rivera at second, threw the ball away for a costly error that made it 5-3.

NOTEBOOK

Cards deal Gonzales for outfielder Other moves include return of Kelly, Duke and Grichuk BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

CHICAGO • In what could be the opening

move in a series of moves before the trade deadline July 31, the Cardinals traded from their pitching depth to add to a position where they already have an abundance of options. But not a hitter like they hope they acquired. The Cardinals sent lefty and former firstround pick Marco Gonzales to pitchingstarved Seattle for Class AAA outfielder Tyler O’Neill, one of the M’s top prospects. O’Neill, 22, is two seasons removed slugging 32 home runs at Class A, and in the past three weeks he’s hit eight homers with a .730 slugging percentage and 17 RBIs in 16 games. He’ll join Class AAA Memphis as a corner outfielder with 19 homers this season and an .807 OPS overall to go with 108 strikeouts in 93 games. “The one thing that we talk a lot about is finding those bats,” said John Mozeliak, president of baseball operations. “We definitely feel like our strength is starting pitching in the minor leagues. Not that we’re not proud of our outfield depth, but we do think this offensive profile is unique. Middle-of-theorder potential.” O’Neill, the son of a Mr. Canada body builder, is from Larry Walker’s hometown and grew up playing on Larry Walker Field. A third-round pick of Seattle in 2013, O’Neill has a similar offensive profile and frame to Randal Grichuk. He’ll join Memphis’ offensive leader, Harrison Bader, in the same outfield, and be one step ahead of breakout outfielders Oscar Mercado, Magneuris Sierra and Randy Arozarena at Class AA. All of that creates more depth for the Cardinals to possibly deal an upper-level outfielder in the coming days. The Cardinals have been gathering a sense of the interest in players like Grichuk and Bader in this market. O’Neill must be added to the 40-man roster this winter. Gonzales, 25, will report to Seattle’s Class AAA affiliate as part of its rotation, taking with him a 2.78 ERA in 12 starts for Memphis since his return from Tommy John surgery. A Gonzaga alum, Gonzales went from the draft to his major-league debut in less than 12 months, though he yo-yo’d between levels after that. This coming spring, he’ll be out of option years.

KELLY’S APPRENTICESHIP BEGINS

As part of a roster refresh Friday that featured

three players added, two sent to Class AAA, and one possibly removed from the organization, the Cardinals brought back catcher Carson Kelly, Grichuk and lefty Zach Duke to the active roster. While Grichuk and Duke had their returns dictated by health, Kelly’s return to the majors signals something more significant — an arrival. One of the top catching prospects in the game, Kelly will serve as Yadier Molina’s backup and, as the Cardinals described Friday, over the coming years see his role grow with his playing time, even if glacially in the first year or two. To make room for him as the backup, the Cardinals designated veteran Eric Fryer for assignment and removed him from the 40-man roster. “Yadi is our catcher,” Mozeliak said. “And our belief is that Yadi will help mentor and grow Carson, but when you look at expectations for Yadi to play every day, they’re still very high. I think when you look at our schedule and how we see things going, I still think he’ll get his at-bats and he’ll take this time to learn our pitchers. But when you look at 2018, 2019, it’s just the natural combination of the two.” Kelly, who just turned 23, set a career high with 10 homers this season to go with a .283 average, a .375 on-base percentage and a .459 slugging percentage at Triple-A Memphis. He went three for four with a homer and two RBIs in his final game for the Redbirds, and that was emblematic of the leap Kelly made this season. Already a Gold Glove winner at catcher in the minors, Kelly found his footing at the plate a year ago and improved his power this season. He said that a focus of his offseason was “wanting to dive into my power a little more.” He doubled in the Cardinals’ decisive eighth Friday. The Cardinals signed Molina to a threeyear, $60 million extension this past spring, and Kelly saw that as his chance to do some graduate work, on the job. “It’s more time for me to spend with Yadi,” he said. “In the next three years, I’m just going to continue to learn from him. I’m going to learn a lot. And then being in the big leagues with Yadi to see how we go over game plans and taking all those experiences in and writing them in my journal and — it’s just a ton of information.” To make room on the active roster for Grichuk and Duke, the Cardinals optioned Sierra to Class AA and Sam Tuivailala to Class AAA, respectively.

MOLINA SCRATCHED

A few hours before first pitch Friday, the Cardinals learned Molina had a loose body

causing pain in his right ankle. The floating irritant can sometimes be massaged away, but Molina told the team that his ankle “kept locking up” as a result. Matheny stressed that he went through similar soreness and trouble with a loose particle in his knee during his playing days and said it’s all “just kind of the wear and tear of the position.” Molina did not play Thursday and missed part of Wednesday’s blow-out loss, allowing the All-Star catcher a rare 2½-day breather. Kelly was thrust into the starting lineup and announced as Molina’s replacement after he was on the field warming up Carlos Martinez for the first inning. The Cardinals expect Molina to play this weekend.

DUKE RETURNS

Less than 10 months after having his elbow rebuilt and a tendon in his left arm repaired, Duke returned to the bullpen and pitched two-thirds of an inning Friday. When Duke had Tommy John surgery this past fall, he told the Cardinals that he would find some way, some how to contribute by September. Even he called this early return “a surprise.” Duke, 34, had nine rehab appearances in the minors and struck out 10 in nine innings without allowing a run. He retired both batters he faced Friday, including Anthony Rizzo on a lineout. The Cardinals, who acquired him a year ago from the White Sox, intend to use Duke, one of four lefties in the bullpen, as a lefty specialist. Duke had pitched with a strained ligament since 2007, and it came undone in late September last season. He’ll be a free agent at season’s end, and there have been no discussions with the Cardinals yet about a return. “It’s one of those things if I don’t perform well, there are still questions of whether I am healthy,” Duke said. “If I can go out and help the team and contribute then, yes, it is a good thing. Any time you can prove that you’re back.”

JOSE MARTINEZ HIT BY FOUL

During the Cardinals’ nine-run eighth inning Friday, a foul ball sped into the team’s dugout and clonked outfielder Jose Martinez in the left temple. He was taken immediately to the clubhouse and put through a series of tests, some of which will continue Saturday as part of the team’s concussion protocol. Martinez said he felt fine after the game and that a knot had formed on the side of his head. He expected some followup exams Friday evening.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

The Cardinals’ Dexter Fowler calls for time after stealing second base past Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist in the sixth inning Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field. It was Fowler’s fourth stolen base of the season.

Redbirds score nine runs in eighth to defeat Cubs CARDINALS • FROM B1

“I feel playing better should be what drives us,” Mozeliak said. “Watching a game like (that), it’s tough to justify going out and solely playing for this year. I’ve said this before: Some days we hit and we don’t pitch. Some days we pitch and we don’t hit. And then when we do both, you see something like (Thursday). So maybe the broader question is do attitude and culture need to be something that we look at to either change or shake up? And that’s not necessarily something that you can just do at July 31. That might be something we have to look at hard during the offseason.” That look, Mozeliak insisted, is not limited to lockers. While the president of baseball operations suggested that the players had to take “responsibility” for a slippage in play that stretches back to last season, he listed the front office, the man-

ager, and the coaches as also worthy of “a discussion.” “I’m the last person to sit in front of you guys and say that we have this figured out because clearly we don’t,” he said. “But I have been doing it long enough to know that accountability has to be across the board. There’s nobody who can run from this.” Mozeliak rejoined the team in Chicago for this series, and he and Matheny had a lengthy talk even after Friday’s win. In between, the Cardinals made a series of moves that involved a total of eight players. The Cardinals recalled Randal Grichuk (back), Zach Duke (elbow), and catcher Carson Kelly from the minors. All three had prominent roles in Friday’s win. To make room for them, the Cardinals set Magneuris Sierra and Sam Tuivailala back to the minors and placed Eric Fryer on waivers with the intent to designate. The Cardinals also made a minor-league trade, swapping lefty Marco Gonzales

to Seattle for Class AAA outfielder Tyler O’Neill. Grichuk was immediately in the lineup, replacing Sierra in right field. In his first at-bat since returning from a back strain, Grichuk tagged Cubs starter Jake Arrieta with a homer that cut the Cubs’ lead to 2-1. “Give up two early runs and you know you’ve got Arrieta on the mound,” Matheny listed. “Let’s just keep running his pitch count up. Guys made the most of it.” Dexter Fowler, who had three hits and reached base four times at his old haunt, tied the score in the third inning with a double. Kelly found out he was starting in place of Yadier Molina (ankle) two hours before game time, and went to quick work catching up on starter Carlos Martinez. In the warmup, the battery noticed the command the righthander had for his sinker. So they rode it. The Cubs got 10 hits in six innings against Martinez, but he was able

to minimize their scoring with constant access to grounders. He sought contact, and after the Cubs took a 3-2 lead, he was able to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth with a grounder. Duke, back from Tommy John surgery, retired both batters he faced and handed a scoreless inning to Matt Bowman (2-3). They offered an efficient, effective contrast to the Cubs’ bullpen. Matt Carpenter opened the eighth with a double and he would have two hits, score a run, drive home run, and do all of that before the Cubs got an out in the eighth. Three relievers combined to walk six Cardinals, including a bases-loaded walk to Jedd Gyorko from Hector Rondon to tie the score at 3-3. The next batter, rookie Paul DeJong, planted a two-run double in the ivy. The Cardinals scored at least nine runs in an inning before the opponent got an out for the first time since August 2007, according to Elias Sports.

“We’re going to see how many we can score now,” Kelly said. He added two runs when he greeted Justin Grimm, the Cubs’ third reliever of the inning, with a double. What they haven’t had much of this trip settled in. Relief. “Clearly you have to start winning,” Mozeliak said. “There’s nothing tricky behind that statement. This team needs to start believing it’s a winner. … The good news is (the division) does seem up for grabs. So, yes, there’s optimism there for sure. We need to do something different to expect a different outcome. We need to start showing that we can be a consistent team. If we can, then that optimism becomes a truism.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

Former winners Mickelson, Harrington among those missing cut ASSOCIATED PRESS

S O U T H P O R T, E N G L A N D •

Steve Stricker kept a personal streak alive by making the cut in the British Open, the 25th major championship since 2009 that he has played on the weekend. Former champions Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington weren’t as fortunate, heading home after failing to get inside the cut line of 5 over par. Harrington came close, barely missing out on holing a chip on the final hole. Mickelson, meanwhile, added a 77 to the 73 he shot in the first round to finish 10 over. “Unfortunately it’s the first cut I’ve missed this year,” Mickelson said. “And I missed it with flair.” Mickelson, with his brother, Tim, on the bag in place of former longtime caddie Jim Mackay, looked like he might make a run at playing on the weekend when he opened with a birdie on the first hole. But a triple-bogey 7 on the third hole set him back and he made four straight bogeys to open the back nine. “It’s part of the game,” Mickelson said. “I don’t want to put too much stock in it, because I’ve really been hitting the ball well and

playing well. So rather than dwell on two rough days here, I’ll go back home and get ready for these upcoming events.” It was the first cut Mickelson has missed all year. He has never gone through an entire season without missing a cut. The 50-year-old Stricker, who tied for 16th at both the Masters and U.S. Open this year, has never won a major championship. He opened this one with an even-par 70, then added a 72 in blustery conditions in the second round. Harrington, who won the last time the Open was at Royal Birkdale in 2008, couldn’t believe the chip that would have gotten him inside the cut line didn’t go in. He finished with two 73s. “It looked like it was going in all right,” he said. “The story of my day.”

NOT SO STYLISH

Justin Thomas got a lot of attention in the first round when he wore a cardigan sweater and loosely fitted tie designed by sponsor Polo Golf. He also played well, shooting a 3-under-67 to finish the day two shots out of the lead. He wasn’t so well dressed Fri-

day, and he didn’t play nearly as well. Thomas, who opened with a double bogey, took a nine on the sixth hole after an adventure in the deep rough. He tried to hack it out of the rough but his hands came off the club and the ball stayed there. He tried it again — same thing. And on the third try, he didn’t see where it went and couldn’t find the ball, leading to a penalty stroke and a drop. Thomas shot 80 and missed the cut.

BRINGING IT HOME

Mark O’Meara was embarrassed when he hit the opening tee shot of the British Open out of bounds on his way to an 11-over 81. He made up for it with a second round more befitting a former champion. O’Meara, playing in his last Open at the age of 60, shot an even-par 70 in difficult conditions with a bogey on the last hole. It wasn’t enough to make the cut, but it did make him feel better. “I knew the conditions were going to be tough out there today,” said O’Meara, who first played the Open in 1981 and won it in 1998. “I just wanted to play respectable.”

Kuchar survives for second OPEN • FROM B1

from just short of the 10th green. And he learned enough from watching TV to know that going a little long on the par-5 15th would give him a better birdie chance than playing short. So he switched from a 3-iron to a 3-wood, hit it a little off the neck and watched it run hot and fast some 100 yards along the wet turf to about 18 feet away for an eagle putt. “I mishit the shot, which is probably why it looked so gross,” Spieth said. “I hit it low off the heel, which is easy to do when you’re trying to carve a cut. And it just ... one hop, scooted around the group of bunkers there, and then it was obviously fortunate to get all the way to the green.” The flight of that 3-wood looked as ugly as the weather. The outcome was as bright as his chances of getting his name on another major championship trophy. Spieth was at 6-under 134. It was the 12th time he has been atop the leaderboard at a major, including the fourth rounds of the Masters and U.S. Open that he won in 2015. Spieth is the sole leader at a major for the first time since the third round of the Masters last year, when he was runner-up to Danny Willett. “Anytime you’re in the last group on a weekend in a major ... you get nervous. And I’ll be feeling it this weekend a bit,” he said. “But I enjoy it. As long as I approach it positively and recognize that this is what you want to feel because you’re in the position you want to be in, then the easier it is to hit solid shots and to create solid rounds.” Kuchar played in the morning in steadily strong wind, but without rain, and pieced together a solid round until a few mis-

takes at the end for a 71. He was at 4-under 136, and it would have been a good bet that he would be leading with the nasty weather that arrived. “I think that’s what people enjoy about the British Open is watching the hard wind, the rain, the guys just trying to survive out there,” Kuchar said. “Today is my day. I get to kick back in the afternoon and watch the guys just try to survive.” He wound up watching another short-game clinic from Spieth. The key to his round came in the middle, starting with a 10foot par putt on No. 8 after he drove into a pot bunker. The biggest break came at No. 10, when the rain was pounding Royal Birkdale. Spieth hit into another pot bunker off the tee, could only advance it out sideways, and missed the green in light rough. “Massive,” he said about the chip-in par. “Nothing said ‘4’ about this hole. I feel a little guilty about taking 4 on the card.” And he wasn’t through just yet. Spieth rolled in a 35-foot birdie putt across the 11th green, and then after watching Henrik Stenson’s tee shot on the par-3

12th land softly, Spieth realized he could take on the flag. He hit 7-iron to 2 feet for another birdie, and followed that with a beautiful pitch to tap-in range for par on the 13th. Even so, his work is far from over. The chasing pack features U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who failed to make a birdie but stayed in the hunt with 16 pars in a 72, and Ian Poulter with his newfound confidence, which is growing even higher with the support of the English crowd. Poulter shot 70. They were tied for third at 3 under. Not to be overlooked was Rory McIlroy, who recovered from a horrific start Thursday to salvage a 71, and then kept right on rolling. McIlroy, who was 5 over through the opening six holes of the tournament, ran off three birdies with full control of every shot on the front nine. And much like Spieth, he kept his round together with crucial par saves early on the back nine when the wind was at its worse. McIlroy posted a 68 and was at 1-under 139, only five shots behind with only five players in front of him. “To be in after two days and be under par for this championship after the way I started, I’m ecstatic with that,” McIlroy said. Spieth never looked as if he was under any stress, except for his tee shot into the bunker on No. 8. A British writer suggested a lip-reader could have detected some choice words coming out of his mouth. Spieth smiled and replied, “I speak American. You probably didn’t understand me.” The language of his clubs — especially the wedge and the putter — was all too familiar.

GOLF ROUNDUP Collins has 60 for lead

Chad Collins missed a chance for the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history, parring the final two holes for an 11-under 60 on Friday in the second round of the Barbasol Championship in Opelika, Ala. After six straight birdies on Grand National’s rain-softened Lake Course, the 38-year-old player from Indiana missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th and had a 70-footer on 18 that went 5 feet past. Collins was at 15-under 127 for a four-stroke lead over Grayson Murray (64) and Cameron Tringale (66). Piller keeps lead • Gerina Piller followed her opening 8-under 63 with a 68 to maintain a onestroke lead in the Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio. Winless on the LPGA Tour, Piller had four birdies and a bogey at Highland Meadows to reach 11-under 131. Lexi Thompson had a 65 to move into a tie for second with fellow American Nelly Korda, South Korea’s In-Kyung Kim and Taiwan’s Peiyun Chien. Korda had a 64, Kim shot 67, and Chien 68. U.S. Junior finalists set • Noah Goodwin advanced to the U.S. Junior Amateur final for the second straight year, setting up a title showdown with Matthew Wolff at Flint Hills National in Andover, Kan. The 17-year-old Goodwin, from Corinth, Texas, beat India’s Rayhan Thomas 5 and 4 in the semifinals. Goodwin lost to Australia’s Min Woo Lee last year in the 36-hole final. The 18-year-old Wolff, from Agoura Hills, Calif., beat South Africa’s Garrick Higgo 3 and 1 in the semifinals. Associated Press

MIZZOU NOTEBOOK

Alumni basketball game a big positive BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • The concept

for Saturday’s Mizzou basketball alumni game was hatched long before the program’s offseason evolution, but the entrepreneurs behind the event will gladly capitalize on the buzz. For months, former Tigers Laurence Bowers and DeMarre Carroll were tired of the gloomy news coming from their alma mater, both from the school’s two high-profile teams and the campus at-large, and wanted to create an event to shed a more positive light on Mizzou. While Bowers and Carroll pieced together plans for an alumni weekend, the program underwent a head-coaching change, from Kim Anderson to Cuonzo Martin, and a roster makeover led by a top-10 recruiting class. As fans count the days until Mizzou’s Nov. 10 tip-off against Iowa State, the two former Tigers have banked on nostalgia to build interest in their summer appetizer, Saturday’s alumni game

Mizzou Arena’s doors open at 11:30 a.m. for an autograph session, followed by the game at 1 p.m. Tickets cost $5 at the door with proceeds going to multiple charities, including Carroll’s nonprofit liver disease foundation. “It was just some brainstorming ways to get guys back to campus and create some positivity around the university,” said Bowers, who played for the Tigers from 2009-13 and now plays professionally in Italy. “There’s been a lot of tumultuous years between men’s basketball and football, so we were thinking of ways to bring back some excitement. With everything that’s happened on campus it’s almost like there’s been a gray cloud over the university. Since we love our school we just tried to figure out a way to get people excited about what’s going on.” Among those committed to play in Saturday’s game are five of the top 12 scorers in team history: Marcus Denmon, Arthur Johnson, Melvin Booker, Rickey Paulding and Kareem Rush.

Bowers and Carroll, an eightyear NBA veteran recently traded from Toronto to Brooklyn, drafted their teams over the phone earlier this week. They’ll reveal the rosters before tip-off. “I think I’ve got the better guards and he’s got the better of the big men,” Bowers said. “It’s all for fun, although we’re going to try and win the game.” Other former basketball players on board include Brian Grawer, Zaire Taylor, Travon Bryant, Jimmy McKinney, Ricardo Ratliffe, Jason Sutherland, Steve Moore and Jarrett Sutton. Former football players committed to play include Will Franklin, Tony Temple, Martin Rucker, Sean Weatherspoon, William Moore, Tommy Saunders, Jerrell Jackson, Michael Egnew, Brad Ekwerekwu, New England Patriots defensive end Kony Ealy and Justin Gage, who played both sports at Mizzou in the early 2000s. Bowers said Rush was the hardest player to secure for the game. The former Los Angeles Laker still lives in LA, where he’s a recording artist and has a clothing line.

“Now we get to see him shoot some of those sweet lefty 3s,” Bowers said. While several of the participants still play professionally — Denmon and Ratliffe just signed with new teams in Greece and the Philippines, respectively — Bowers expects the oldest player in the field to hold his own. “I feel like Melvin Booker will be a basketball player for the rest of his life and a good one, regardless how old he is,” Bowers said. The 44-year-old former All-American guard “plays three times a week, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the man out there.” As of Thursday, more than 1,000 tickets had been sold, Bowers said. Saturday night, the players will host a charity gala at the Holiday Inn Executive Center.

Dempsey hopes to get U.S. into final

Playing near his hometown, he needs one goal to equal Donovan’s scoring record ASSOCIATED PRESS

ARLINGTON, TEXAS • Clint

Dempsey is back in his home state of Texas, one goal away from a national scoring record for the United States team, which is one win from playing in another CONCACAF Gold Cup final. The Americans play a semifinal game Saturday night against Costa Rica in a stadium synonymous with American football — the home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, the Cotton Bowl and where the first College Football Playoff championship game was played three seasons ago. That is only about 180 miles from Dempsey’s hometown of Nacogdoches. “It’s always great to be home and play in front of family and friends, especially for a big game,” Dempsey said. “I have a lot of great memories of playing in Dallas as a kid, and I’m proud to represent Nacogdoches. Being from there made me who I am today.”

Clint Dempsey needs one goal to match the American record of 57 held by Landon Donovan entering Saturday’s Gold Cup semifinal match against Costa Rica in Arlington, Texas.

Dempsey, one goal from matching Landon Donovan’s American record of 57 national team goals, wasn’t part of soccer’s only Gold Cup games at the $1.2 billion AT&T Stadium.

In a 2013 semifinal game there when the Americans were on the way to their fifth Gold Cup championship, they beat Honduras 3-1. Donovan scored twice in that game — his 55th and 56th

goals for the national team — and assisted on the other goal. About two months later, Donovan scored his final goal in a World Cup qualifier win over Mexico. Within a week after Costa Rica beat the U.S. team 4-0 in World Cup qualifying last November, Jurgen Klinsmann was out as the U.S. coach and Bruce Arena was rehired to the position he had been fired from a decade earlier. Costa Rica coach Oscar Ramirez said Friday that Arena has seemingly had a positive impact on the U.S. team. “They look more relaxed in terms of what they’re doing on the field,” Ramirez said through an interpreter. This U.S. roster for the Gold Cup knockout rounds also is much different from the one that played in Costa Rica eight months ago — not just the change at coach. Only five players from that game that are set for this semifinal game — Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez and Gra-

ham Zusi. “That’s in the past,” Gonzalez said. “I don’t think about that game. ... This is just another game. It’s another opportunity for us to see what we’re made out of.” Altidore, Dempsey, Bradley, Darlington Nagbe, and goalkeeper Tim Howard were all added to the lineup before a 2-0 win over El Salvador in the quarterfinal Wednesday night. Dempsey set up Eric Lichaj’s goal in extra time before halftime to make it 2-0 against El Salvador. Dempsey also fed Gyasi Zardes for a breakaway, though that apparent goal didn’t count after he was ruled offside. That game was Dempsey’s 135th appearance for the national team. Dempsey isn’t the only player with Texas ties. Three players from FC Dallas, the MLS team that plays its home games about 40 miles away from the big stadium in Frisco, are on the roster: Kellyn Acosta, Matt Hedges and Jesse Gonzalez.

His actual four club bid was a cue bid in support of spades. Had South been able to find out about partner’s king and queen of trumps, he would have bid seven spades. Nothing wrong with that contract, but on this lie of the cards, even 12 tricks would be a challenge. South won the opening club

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD lead with dummy’s ace and cashed the king of spades, getting the bad news. South needed East to follow to three rounds of diamonds to have a chance, so he led to his ace of diamonds and cashed two more high diamonds right away. So far, so good. Declarer led a heart to dummy’s king and ruffed a club with the five of spades. Next, declarer cashed the ace of hearts and ruffed a heart low in dummy. East was down to nothing but spades at this point and South had nine tricks in the bag. A club was led from dummy, ruffed by East with the 10, and over-ruffed by South with the ace. A diamond was ruffed in dummy with the queen of spades as East helplessly under-ruffed, and another club was led. It didn’t matter whether East ruffed high or low, South couldn’t be prevented from scoring his twelfth trick with the nine of spades. Well played! (07/22/17)

DEAR ABBY

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

Dad who paid bills holds it over couple

Dear Son-In-Law • Your fatherin-law regards his generosity as a means to control your wife — and you. You are not required to answer your phone if you prefer not to talk at a particular time, and you certainly do not have to entertain him and his wife at the drop of a hat. The next time the

subject comes up, explain that to him, hand him a check and let the chips fall where they may. Dear Abby • My best friend is pregnant. Her husband is a lazy jerk who, during her last pregnancy, caused her to miscarry. It happened after he informed her he was filing for divorce and marrying a mail-order bride. I can’t bring myself to be happy for her. What do I do? How can I be happy for the person who means the most to me but will probably lean on me for more support than I can or want to give? — BEST FRIEND BLUES IN KENTUCKY DEAR B.F.B. • Friends do lean on each other for support, but you can only do what you can do. Frankly, I am surprised that she’s still with the husband. Help her in those areas that you can, but ultimately understand that she is responsible for her own choices. If she needs more help than you can give her, encourage her to reach out to a professional.

Dear Abby • A colleague of mine was let go a few days ago, and it shocked us all. I imagine it was even more shocking to her. She seemed to have a good deal of responsibility outside of her normal role, and from what we saw, she was excellent at her job. We weren’t close friends outside of work, but we would text each other now and again, and I consider her someone I would like to keep in touch with. Would it be inappropriate to text her and offer my condolences? — ETIQUETTE ADVICE IN CALIFORNIA Dear Etiquette • You are entitled to a personal life outside the office. I don’t think it would be inappropriate to reach out to her on your own time. As long as you don’t discuss it at work, it is your business and no one else’s. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

MISS MANNERS

When wrong name is used, be gracious Dear Miss Manners • My husband and I decided to hyphenate our names when we were married. However, people still address me, both in person and in writing, as “Emily Jones” or “Mrs. John Jones,” even though my preferred title is “Ms. Smith-Jones.” When this happens, I usually smile and say “Actually, it’s Smith-Jones.” Most people apologize and immediately begin using the correct name from that point forward, but some continue to refer to both me and my husband as “The Jones Family” or “Mr. and Mrs. Jones.” What can I say or do to get people to call me by my name? Gentle Reader • Not much. Miss Manners advises that you accept that these people are either forgetful, or are slaves to the patriarchy and trying to keep you down. (She suspects that you have concluded the latter, and

cautions you against invoking any subtext or smugness in that initial, smiling correction.) In any case, pressing the matter beyond your smiling correction is likely to result in an unpleasant and ultimately futile conversation. Dear Miss Manners • I have a friend from high school who has become a professional artist in NYC. I haven’t spoken to him in years and we were never particularly close, but I’ve been following his career and I genuinely love some of his work. I am considering purchasing a piece. However, I have no idea what it’s worth and I don’t know the right way to broach the subject. I’m afraid if I offer too little he’ll be offended, but I’m also afraid he’ll tell me it’s worth more than I can afford, which would also be embarrassing. How should I handle this?

Gentle Reader • Ask him. This is a business transaction and not a social one — an important distinction that Miss Manners finds more frequently violated in the reverse (with hapless co-workers forced to socialize in the name of “good business’’). If your friend is truly a professional artist, then he is used to these proceedings. Or would dearly like to be. Tell him that you have fallen in love with one of his pieces and want to purchase it. Then ask him how much it is. If it is out of your price range, tell him so. If it inadvertently turns into a bargaining tactic, so be it. Send questions to Miss Manners, aka Judith Martin, on her website, missmanners.com; to her email, dearmissmanners@gmail.com; or through postal mail to Miss Manners, Universal Uclick, 1130 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Mo. 64106. Miss Manners’ son, Nicholas Ivor Martin, and her daughter, Jacobina Martin, contribute to this column.

Differences: 1. Leaf is missing. 2. Paper is added. 3. Eyes are moved. 4. Chair is different. 5. Sleeve is shorter. 6. Hair is different.

Dear Abby • My wife and I have been married just over a year. It’s the second marriage for both of us. My father-in-law continually “reminds” us that he helped my wife financially after her divorce. He wants us to continually acknowledge that fact. I have offered to write a check and pay him back, but he refused because he doesn’t want the money; he wants the appreciation. To him what that means is when he calls on the phone, we answer. When he and his wife drop by, we are home, etc. I feel that since I have offered to pay him back and he refused the money, the slate is wiped clean. Your thoughts? — NOT SONIN-LAW OF THE YEAR

Introvert copes with a yearly invasion Adapted from a recent online discussion.

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Hi, Carolyn • I live with my husband in a 750-squarefoot apartment in an expensive city. I’m an introvert, and I hate having houseguests for more than one or two nights, but my husband has made it clear that his family’s visits are priorities. When his sister and her kids come to visit, I’m embarrassed to think I probably come across as peevish and unwelcoming. They only come once a year for four to seven days, so, any tips on how to have a better time? — Host

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

Answer • I reflexively balk at “my husband has made it clear that his family’s visits are priorities,” because it’s your home, too. But: You have priorities, too, yes, which he honors? Which you can think about, mantra-like, during these visits? And: Once a year! You can do that. I know of introversion, but I also know it doesn’t wipe out all marital obligation. So, is there a line you can walk between the two, where you honor his priorities while also tending to your own needs? For example: Can you plan to visit your family for part of his family’s stay? Or an old friend, or a place you’ve been wanting to see? Maybe your husband will take it wrong, but try framing it this way: You like his family just fine, presumably; it’s just the relentlessness of long visits in tight quarters that cramps you. So, enjoy them for the day or two that your invasion-patience holds out, then escape for the rest of it. Here’s the clincher: Your husband and his immediate family get to enjoy each other without you there. It’s no reflection on you; the opportunity for familyonly visits is just so valuable to so many people, even those who love the inlaws, too. If this isn’t possible, then please just schedule time out of the apartment. Be with everyone for lunch, leave for a few hours to ... do whatever it is you need to do, then rejoin the group for dinner.

Re 750 square feet • In addition to Carolyn’s suggestions, schedule things — age-appropriate — to do during the day outside the apartment. They don’t need to be expensive: visit parks, free exhibits, tourist attractions, etc. If the children like trains, visit a train station. — Anonymous

Re Bummed Host • Hubby can plan some treks with the family that she can have some excuse not to attend. Then use that as alone time in the apartment. It’s a solid compromise that lets everyone’s priorities work, including sightseeing for the guests. — Anonymous 2 tellme@washpost.com
